richly ear Standing next to the GATA Fountain, you can look around campus and see different types of buildings that make up the ACU facilities. They are as different as the views of the people who study and work within them. The Prickly Pear staff wanted this book to show as many student and faculty perspectives as possible for the 1982-83 school year, so we chose the theme Perspectives '83. Our theme is carried out through the stories and quotes and the pictures about those stories. We tried to put in something different for everybody, and it's up to you if we succeeded. We hope years from now you can look back at this book and a picture will spark a chain of memories and smiles. You may not have realized it, but you, the students, worked hard to make this book a success through your smiles, ideas and cooperation. Therefore, this book is dedicated to the students of ACU 1982-83. Abilene Christian University Abilene, Texas 79699 Volume Sixty-eight Title Page f 1 I Xb 'GN-.. ,f- 'ix' -L,-,,., s e 1 1.-11? 77 ..

These changes are largely a result of things we experience and observe everyday in the world around us. As we experience and explore, we hegin to form different perspectives about our world. our fellow man and even ourselves. We argue and agree with each other, understand and misunderstand each other, and share happiness and sor- row with each other, all because of our perspectives. Our perspectives in 1982-83 were influenced by a broad spectrum of events - everything from international happen- ings to letters to the editor in :be Optimirr. , Top left: Andi Cannedy, senior, and Lisa Blanks, freshman, get acquainted at GATA social cIub's fall semester rush.

Some men thought it was fashionable, while others thought it was "kinky." Still, most didn't care and believed it was stupid to argue over - and they were probably right. Early in the fall, the Students' Association sought a new policy for deposits in the business office. Glenn Addison, SA treasurer, wanted organizations to earn interest on their accounts but the administration wasn't sold on the proposal. Compromise was the final word. The economy changed many of our perspectives about how we lived and how to manage our resources. Unemploy- ment rose to its highest level since the Great Depression, and Americans looked to Washington to blame and to ask for the solution, all in the same breath. With the nation's budget out of control the promises of the 1980 election became ammunition for the Democrats to try to shoot down Reaganomics. "Cut" was the word on Capitol Hill, and the cuts were felt in many areas, from col- Top Iett: President William J. Teegueg H.

About the on- ly thing that didn't get part of the ax was defenseispending. The cost of living rose, and ACU had little choice but to increase tuition for the fall of 1982. Ninety-four dollars per hour was the bottom line. Moans were heard from all over campus as students had to tighten their belts - or call mom and dad - to keep up with the pace of funding their educations. The administration took a big step to improve ACU's future by raising funds for a 32.5 million expansion project for the Margaret and Herman Brown Library. The money was raised through gifts and pledges and two foundation grants for the 25,000-square-feet addition, which was scheduled to be completed by the 1984-85 school year, On the national scene, expansion into space took another step forward with the fifth voyage of space shuttle "Colum- bia."

Preparation for the annual celebration began weeks before he crowds arrived when more than 60 students were ap- moirited to committees planning activities for the theme: 'Let's Have an Old-Fashioned Homecoming." Co-chairmen Lori Stobaugh, home economics major from Dverland Park, Kan., and Larry Musick, accounting major 'rom Waco, directed the weekends events. Homecoming 1982 officially opened when the 10 queen iominees and Coming Home Queen Marla Shahan Alex- inder and her court were introduced in Chaple. Excitement for the game against East Texas State Univer- :ity mounted Friday as students and alumni gathered on the Administration Building steps for a devotional and parade eading to the bonfire and pep rally. Special honor was given to Garvin Beauchamp, vice presi- ent for student services, as he received the Exceptional ecognition Award at Saturdays Homecoming Chapel. The carnival sponsored by the Student Foundation took omecoming' the shape of an old-fashioned town with store fronts and booths including steer roping, the Sigrrfa Theta Chi Sweet Shop, GATA Yum-Yum Ice Cream booth and Frater Sodalis Balloon Throw. The tradition of ringing the bell continued this year as students took turns keeping the bell ringing from opening Chapel until the football game. "Shenandoah," a musical set during the Civil War, brought tears to the eyes of many during the show's four performances at the Abilene Civic Center. And once again the freshmen delighted crowds with the Freshman Follies' production "Simple Splendor." Highlights from the variety-style show included gibes at the school cafeteria with "The Mean Bean Blues," a ballet dance and a candlelight opening song. Wildcat fans had little to cheer about at the football game as the Cats were downed 25-23 by the East Texas State Lions, with a last second field goal. But with the reunion of old friends and the crowning of Beth Owens, all-levels physical education major from Con- roe, at halftime of the game, spirits ran high throughout the remainder of the weekend. - Andrea Cannedy c 2 3 -5 Bottom left: Senior Charles Pullen, junior Oscar Brown and senior Milton Buckelew entertain the crowd at the barbecue in the mall area.

It's a good time for students to see some outstanding musical performances, to be irritated by the clanking of the bell, and to be excited by football and the selection of a new queen. But what peo- ple don't realize is that many hours of preparation and hard work have gone into Homecoming weekend. Student involvement is what Homecoming is really all about, said Homecoming co-chairman Lori Stobaugh, a senior from Overland Park, Kan. "We need artists and han- dymen and clubbers and non-clubbers. It takes a lot of dif- ferent talents to put it all together." Outdoor activities director Sally Gary said she thought Homecoming was a great time to get to know others and to involve a lot of people who ordinarily might not get involv- ed in a large group activity such as Sing Song. She said she depended on a lot of non-clubbers to do work because so many clubbers were busy with other projects. Co-chairman Larry Musick, a junior accounting major from Brownwood, said that Homecoming is a "people pro- duced" activity that brings student and alumni together. Not only did Homecoming bring students closer together, but it gave them a chance to work closely with the administration. "I got to know people from the administra- tion to the maintenance department," said Sally. The activity-filled weekend takes a lot of time, but Lori said it was all worthwhile to see the thoughts and ideas that came to life and to see the friendships that were produced as a result of Homecoming. The most unique part of Homecoming, said Lori, was the role that freshmen played and that Homecoming played for them. It started them off on the right foot. It gave them a chance to meet new people and establish friendships that will last throughout college, she said. The theme, "Let's Have an Old-Fashioned Homecoming," was especially appropriate for Homecoming, said Sally, because the main function of Homecoming is to bring peo- ple back together and to evoke memories of days past. More than 60 students worked on three committees to make Homecoming a smooth and entertaining weekend. jonathan Gibbs, a senior pubic relations major from Abilene was in charge ofthe special activities committee. Stephanie Shinn, a senior accounting major from San Antonio, directed the queen's activities. - Andrea Cannedy X., Bottom tett: Senior Tim Shea enjoys a bite to eat at the all-school barbecue.

'5 J ' - ' X wi' sf N' 'S-' T The Charlie Anderson family in the musical "Shenan- doah" loved and fought its way through the Civil War, as did the stage family who worked and loved and struggled its way through the production of another outstanding ACU musical. The cast, especially the Anderson family, became an off- stage "family," said Clay Hale, senior marketing major from Abilene, who played the lead role of Charlie Anderson, "You learn to love them like your own family. When you see them struggle and fail, then see them struggle and suc- ceed, it is all worthwhile," he said. Deborah Gardner, junior drama major from Arlington Heights, Ill., portrayed the role of jenny Anderson. She believed the audience could see the love the performers had for each other. The cast spent time together outside of rehearsals, said Nelson Coates, senior advertising major from Abilene, who played Henry. "We had a barbecue and taught the girls how to shoot rifies. The times we shared offstage made the Anderson family seem more realistic." The students who performed spent many hours every day preparing for opening night. But they all agreed that in the end the time was definitely worthwhile." Greg Perry, a senior all-level physical education major from Abilene, played the role ofjacob, one of the sons. He said the response from the audience was "the icing on the cake." Greg believed the musical gave the audience a good feel- ing about the drama division as well as shared a very impor- tant message. The actors tried to convey the heartache and strain people experienced during the Civil War, said Greg. But the Anderson family showed the strength of the family unit and how people can stay together even during the worst oftimes. "Shenandoah" was only one of several musicals Clay has performed in. But he believes this story was particularly meaningful for him because he was the father. "It made me look forward to being a father. It showed how special the family relationship is and how important the father is to the family unit." Leslie Hunter, mass communication major from Abilene, was the only freshman in the stage family. "They teased me offstage at times about being 'The Boy' because of my part and my age, but I learned a lot from the director and the ,rr -:' I ng w W5 , A5 , x 'R r 3 X321-fn W hi - 1 -. avi? :sig i if ,Q 1 3 .. 5 5- A .

He had been in other musicals, but none while he was a college freshman learning to juggle the books. "It did hurt my grades a bit, but I'd do it again in a minute." This year was the fastest a musical has ever come together at ACU because of the talented and experienced people who worked to put the show together, said Lewis Fulks, artistic director ofthe ACU Theatre. But Clay believes the show came together because of Fullcs' leadership. "He helped us to keep the glory in the right place," said Clay. "A lead role can be a very humbling experience, and I realized if it wasn't for the Lord we wouldnt have anything." The musical drew students closer together and closer to God, said Clay. And the cast did a fine job of entertaining the audience at the same time. - Andrea Cannedy Charlie Anderson jacob ......., james ........ Nathan . . . john .... jenny ........ Henry ........

The audience has gone home, the curtains are drawn , . . finally the show is over. Or so most people think. Actually, things have just started rolling on stage. The people who work to make the musical the polished product that it is rarely are seen. Many unsung heros come on stage only for the behind-the-scenes production that hap- pens when the curtain falls - set strike. The mood-producing lighting. the painted backdrops, the props and the stage furniture all have to come down and be stored, said Ted Starnes, technical director of "Shenandoah" After the final performance of the musical, a catered meal was served to 50-75 students, who stuck around after the ap- plause to help with the set strike. "We started about 7 p.m. and finished up around 2 a.m," said Starnes, who kept things moving along. Students involv- ed love to laugh and have a good time, he said, and without some organization, it would take all night. lferryn Martin, senior government major from Baytown, has been involved in all aspects of productions, from acting to tearing down the set, for four years. She said set strike is the culmination of the show. Set strike is a relief for many but also very sad for others, especially the seniors. "I know l'll never be a part of this sort of production again, and there is such finality to set strike," said Ferryn. After all musicals and plays, the cast and crew gather at Sewell Theatre where students and directors express their feelings about the show. "Meeting at Sewell is great because everyone is real 'simpled-outf Everything said is either hilarious or you want to hit the person who said it," said Ferryn. The final meeting is emotional because everyone has beer running on little sleep for weeks. "You are just so tired,' said Ferryn. that with the singing of "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" it is easy to be reflective. And after the final verse of that traditional song, the finale finally comes, - Andrea Carznedy A is .,.nY,..,......----W. f Tl, 1. . A W , oi. Set Strike f 21 College shopping The excitement of choosing the place a student will spend his next four years is what High School Day is all about. High school students from around Texas, neighboring states and even as far away as Alaska came to ACU to see the campus, meet professors and learn about different academic departments. Bud did students really come to weigh the advantages of ACU against other schools? Most high schoolers said they came to ACU to get away for the weekend and to see what college life was really like. Students who visited ACU in the fall were treated to a variety of activities. Beth Cox, special projects coordinator, said the emphasis during High School Day was on fun and games and exposure to campus life. Visiting students and their parents listened to Dr. William J. Teague speak during opening Chapel exercises and heard a special performance by "Heaven's jubilee," a musical group from Hillcrest Church of Christ. The Flying Cats performed, and prospective freshmen par- ticipated in a spirit-boosting pep rally followed by a tailgate party at Shotwell Stadium before the Sam Houston State University-ACU football game. At the conclusion of High School Day, students left ACU with new friends and a clearer picture of college life and some ofthe activities available at ACU. - Andi Cannedy Top: High school students join the A Cappella in singing "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" to conclude High School Dey activities. Middle left, right and bottom: High school students enjoy visiting ACU lor a weekend of activities. 22 f High School Day 'The Crucible' The story of how 19 men and women and two dogs were hanged for witchcraft was brought to life by the ACU Theatre in its December presentation of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible." The play, directed by Dr. Ted Starnes, associate professor of drama, was Miller's comment on the 1953 Congressional investigations. Those "witchhunts" - as many have referred to them - led by Senator McCarthy probed into allegedly subversive and Communistic activities on the part of American citizens. But many viewers saw the play as a historical study rather than as a political allegory. Salem, Mass., was the setting for the intense, emotional drama focusing on john Proctor, played by graduate student Kevin Weems. Proctor struggles for honesty and justice in a time when absolute dedication to evil was displayed by the judges of the trials.

And to the aid of the social lives of some of the more shy fellows on campus. You give us the chance to he on the other side ofthe fence. And on the other side of the wallet. Sadie Hawkins Week comes around only once a semester f too often for some and not often enough for others. Troy Pieper. a freshman business management major from Col- umbia, Mo., said "Sadie Hawkins is great! But once a semester is enough." Michael Osburn, a freshman general business major from Columbia, Mo., agreed that Sadie Hawkins Week could be a good thing. It just depended on the woman doing the ask- ing, he said. Danny jensen, a sophomore youth ministry major from Vernon who had 11 dates during Sadie Hawkins Week, said it was very flattering to be asked out. He said that many guys might feel deprived when they don't get asked out. "Girls ought to go for the gusto during Sadie Hawkins," he said. And go for the gusto is just what jennifer Haltom did. jennifer, a freshman pre-law major from Texarkana, had 32 dates during Sadie Hawkins. She had breakfast dates, lunch dates. dinner dates, afternoon dates, and apparently lots of other kinds of dates. She said it was a great way to get to know some new guys. "Sadie is super. It really helped me appreciate what guys do for you, especially financially. I spent a lot of money." Mark Pickle, sophomore accounting major from Palestine, may not have had as many dates asjennifer, but he said his two dates were so nice that they made up for the rest of the week. Mark said it felt great to be asked out, but he believed if the girls were going to do the asking the roles should be completely reversed. "They still expected me to fi? fs Km! ,F 4. ii-A ,? f '99 -Ke 5 "'iLa.,QW.aw,a ., I ' . wlw V.. Jen doors and to drive f they need to do it all. Robert Reagan, junior public relations major from Austin ho had six dates. agreed with most students that Sadie awkins Week is a good activity. But he also believed pro- ems could arise because emotions run high during Sadie's 'eek. lie said he had seen too many people get their feel- gs hurt. Some problem areas were when a guy is asked by so- eone he doesnt want to go out with, said Robert, and then 2 isn't asked by someone he would like to go out with. topping hints also can lead to problems, he said, Women didnt have to be too creative in planning their tres because the Students' Association sponsored special rdie activities Nov. 15-20.

The showdown was the highlight of the Students' Association-sponsored weekend designed to promote school spirit among students. The weekend began with a pep rally after Chapel on Fri- day and the traditional all-night ringing of the bell by the freshman class. Approximately 400 people attended a barbecue at Allen Farm on Friday evening. Students participated in various games including an egg ross, a three-legged race and a wild- cow-milking contest, And what would a barbecue in West Texas be without a goat dressing contest? Many adventure-seeking participants soon realized the toughest thing was not getting the clothes on the goat, but catching the goat. The Aggie CLub sponsored a rodeo after the barbecue. As club members showed their skills in bronco busting, bull riding, barrel racing and tying. After the activities at Allen Farm, "Hero," a pop-variety band from Dallas, performed in Cullen Auditorium. Four of the band's five members are former ACU students. A 5-kilometer road race Saturday morning attracted 71 6l77Z77261f 615125 students. The winner in the men's division was Kirk Thax ton, a senior accounting major from Abilene, and the winnei in the women's division was Denise Smith, a senior home economics major from Littleton, Colo. Top finishers in the race received a "Hammer the javelinasn T-shirt and 10 intramural points for tearr participation. Before Saturday night's game, the SA sponsored a car- decorating contest on the Big Purple Stomping Grounds Then about 150 students enjoyed a tailgate party at Shotwell Stadium, featuring Larry's Better Burger ice cream. The Students' Association hopes to sponsor a weekend each year designed to promote school spirit, said Shelli Dew, SA special events coordinator. "Hammer thejavelinasn originated with last year's "Roast the Rams" weekend. The idea was developed during a brainstorming session by Bart Castle, Steve Mack and jimmy Cawyer, the 1982-82 SA executive officers. Castle said "the three hoped the weekend would become a tradition," Robert Reagan, a junior public relations major from Austin, said, "The Aggie Club did a good job preparing for the barbecue." Reagan also said, "Student participation in the weekend's activities was good and the football players appreciated the students supporting them." - Kelb Tolron C tu E U 3 CU CE as 4' Hixmxll Vx Sr KW!

The crowd called the artist back for two encores and en- thusiastically sang along to such hits as "Celebrate Me Home" and "This is It." Loggins apparently expected Abilene fans to be stoic because after the concert he said he was "pleasantly surprised" with the crowd. Loggins and his band provided the audience with a pro- fessional show, although there were minor problems with microphones. At one point Loggins got a bit aggravated as he searched for a guitar pick and a member of the technical crew had to bring one on stage. But the assembly in Moody loved the show and didn't seem to notice the small problems on stage. The Students' Association lost more than 35,000 on the concert, causing the formation of the Concert Evaluation Committee to review concerts and the effects they have on ACU and the students. But despite the financial loss most viewed the performance as a great success. - Andrea Cannedy' ' ' Q-new .-,.0,,p. Y. 4 " ....-f' . Y I SASS A 49-day USO tour of the Pacific was the highlight of the year for the ACU-based band SASS. Band members played 41 concerts in 45 days to military personnel in Korea,japan and the Philippines. Scott Parker, lead guitarist, said the group had expanded into a regular act and had done shows for Baylor University and Texas Tech and for Gardski's Loft in Amarillo. The group also has finished producing three master quality songs for release as singles. The group was allowed to tour the demilitarized zone. which is the border between North and South Korea. "That was a real tense situation," said Parker. But the nationals were all very responsive, he said, and "really into American music." He said the group especially enjoyed playing to japanese village children on Christmas Day and playing in the Philippines on New Year's Eve. The hometown crowd is always a performer's favorite, and the same holds true for SASS, said Parker. The group performed two concerts in Cullen Auditorium. The group said it feels very close to ACU and that its Christian influence in the music industry is the most impor- tant thing to the members. . "We want to leave some impact on that worldly environ- ment in the music industry, however small we may be," Parker said. "That is what we are shooting for." - Andrea Cdllilfdy Top: Caryl Parker ot Abilene and Hut lflutto of Tacoma, Wash., entertain students in Cullen Auditorium.

S 1 Q if aj, ff ff sassy si Serving the right to know The public has the right to know what goes on in any government situation except in cases when the defendants right to privacy would be violated, such as in a rape trial, said Fred Graham, CBS law correspondent. Graham spoke to a crowd of approximately 75 students March 31 during a visit sponsored by the Students' Associa- tion Educational Affairs Committee. The public's right to know was included in one of Graham's three common sense principles that he listed dur- ing his speech. The principles were directed at mass com- municators to use as a guide in dealing with the American peoples' fear of crime on the government level. Graham's first principle was that people shouldn't let their faith in technology supersede their fatih in their principles. He said technological advances bring questions about ethics and methods of uncovering stories. The second principle was that people shouldn't be afraid to use technology out of fear of losing control in the pro- cess. He said the public has the right to know and the government shouldn't drag its feet in making advances in the areas of electronic journalism and investigation. Graham's final principle was that people shouldn't let the desires of the present keep them from learning from the lessons ofthe past. He ended his talk by saying that "this nation is currently so intent to satisfy immediate desires that we can't see to make long-run decisions. But Washington is in pretty good shape . . . The American people are well served." Graham covered the activities of the Supreme Court, the justice Department, the FBI and legal profession. He also anchored "The Law and You," a news feature broadcast each Wednesday with Charles Kuralt on the CBS new pro- gram "Morning" He had won several awards including three Emmy Awards for television coverage of the Watergate and Agnew resigna- tion stories. - Betsey Bolin 32 f Fred Graham E 8 CJ mi, rr Lett: Fred Graham diecueeee the public'e right to know at a news conference.

'I C D tanding b our dut Dr. Douglas Covington, chancellor of Winston-Salem Ltate University, came to ACU March 15 as the first of two peakers sponsored by the Students' Association Educational Sffairs Committee. Covington spoke about the values of Christian education ,nd answered questions on topics such as black education ,nd the implications of ethnic changes in today's society. Covington, a member of the Church of Christ, talked ,bout the importance of Christian values in society today. "It s out duty to keep the faith," he said. "If we don't stand for omething, we'll fall for anything." He quoted statistics on the current world situation, in' :luding world poverty, lack of education and conflicts bet- veen nations, He said Christians have the ability to alleviate he problem. "If it is to be, it is up to us," he said. Concerning black education, Covington said that in the past, black colleges have played a major role, but they have done so with limited resources. Covington said the future has brightened because it is easier to find support. "I think that many of our distinguished black institutions will con- tinue to survive and thrive." Covington gave a short answer for a question about in- stitutional racism, "Racism is silly," he said. "It's a waste of natural resources. l'm happy with being black. I like my complexion. What bothers me is the reaction to my blackness." Several professional and civic organaztions have recog- nized Covington for his work, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Council of Negro Women, - Beziey Bolin Covington smiles during his lecture about black education.

Monroy, Spain's leading journalist and a minister, ned the series of major lectures in Moody Coliseum. Ilbinroy spoke without an interpreter and was occasionally fficult to understand. But during his lecture, "Moral Ladership for a Modern World," he said, "I don't need any words in English to tell you one thing. If we want to b to the rest of the American cities or to the rest of the orld, we have to go to them with an allied God, the God fthe Bible." Monroy said the Churches of Christ needed to be more .volved in changing the morality in the United States and ne whole world. He added that to do so would mean going ut in the world with the right concept of God. Texas Supreme Court justice jack Pope spoke Monday evening on "Morality in Government." Pope, an ACU graduate, offered some positive thoughts on government of- ficials. He said he believed the scandals people read about daily were not representative of most government officials. Most public servants he encountered were honest and dedicated, he said. Pope said the immorality in government mirrored the im- morality of society and that he believed this immorality was caused by America's "secularized religion." President William Teague presented the Tuesday night lecture, "Morality in Education." He stressed that the Lord's way is the only way in deciding what is and isn't moral. Teague said that although people were continually asking the administration to change rules, ACU would continue to uphold its traditional Christian standards because he believ- ed one of the school's purposes was to teach others to im- prove their quality of "light." x 1.

W 'T Ki!! az Mockingbird' The concern for human dignity came to the ACU stage in pbruary when "To Kill a Mockingbird" was presented as a inner Theatre. The setting of the play is a woman's memory of her iildhood. The place is Maycomb, Ala., in 1935. But the iessage is timeless and encourages each individual to ex- nine his own conscience and character. The play, written by Harper Lee and directed by Adam iester, communication instructor, focuses on the role of the 'egro in the south. The play is concerned with human ignity rather than civil rights. The killing of a mockingbird, harmless bird, is symbolic of the treatment received by the .acks and other oppressed people during that time. The play also deals with how conscience is instilled in the iildren of Atticus Finch when Finch is appointed to defend Negro in a rape trial. Lee was born in Alabama and was the youngest daughter a lawyer. Lee's younger years are similar to the character out, the daughter of Atticus Finch, Finch, the leading man, was played by Elliott Bales, a :nior drama major from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Bales isplayed the strength of character needed to deal with the damant public that Finch faced. Scout was played by Rebecca Carpenter, a senior drama iajor from Webb City, Mo. Carpenter displayed her ver- satility as an actress in the role of the young girl. She was last seen as Maggie in "The Man Who Came to Dinner." Carpenter's wide-eyed expressions and bare feet made her a very convincing tomboy. jean Louise Finch was portrayed by Jayne Whitaker, who returned to the ACU stage where she acted in college pro- ductions as a student in the 19405. She now is a faculty member teaching oral interpretation of literature and educa- tional speech communication. jeff Grady, a graduate student, returned to the ACU Theatre after a three-year absence to play Dill. He joined with Sally Gary as Calpurnia to add comic relief to an other- wise serious dramatic presentation. In addition, the cast included Greg Holt as jemi, Peggy Lewis, Maudie Atkinson, Lory Moore, Stephanie Crawford, Susan Lovell, Mrs. Dubose, Kelvin Dilks, Nathan Radley, Rick Tinney, Arthur Radley, Greg Perry, Heck Tate, joel james, judge Taylor, Arthur Culpepper, Reverend Sykes, Rachel johnson, Mayella Ewell, Key Payton, Bob Ewell, joseph Dennis, Walter Cunningham, Michael Dale Moore, Mr. Golmer, Alan Brown, Tom Robinson, and Yulanda Warren, Helen Robinson.

For others, it meant a time to visit Mom and Dad, get some sleep, eat Mom's good meals and relax for a few minutes. Still others used spring break as a chance for a pleasure trip. But for one fairly large group of students, spring break was much more than any of those things. That group was made up of students who participated in the Spring Break Campaigns, working with congregations across the nation. Students this year were involved in campaigns to a dozen cities: Portland, Ore., St. Louis, Mo., Long Beach, Calif., Oshkosh, Wis.g San Antonio, Philadelphia, New York City, Miami, Fla., San Leandro, Calif., Lansdowne, Pa., Wood- bury, NJ.g and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The goals of the campaigns were to introduce students to areas where Christians were needed and to allow them to ex- perience a new environment, its culture and the influence the church had in that area. The methods of each campaign group differed according to the needs of the area in which the group was visiting. Students returning from the campaigns always had stories to tell, stories that helped those who hadn't participated bet- ter understand what made the campaigns so special. In- cluded here are summaries and excerpts from reports by Robert Reagan, director of the New York City campaign, and Rachel O'Rear, a San Antonio campaigner. Although the names, places and specific details changed for each city visited by campaigners, many of the feelings, emotions and perspectives were similar for all campaigners. Robert, a junior from Leander, recalled one of the first people he met in New York. After arriving March 18, Robert and his group of nine campaigners went to eat. Robert stood in line by a "drunk man" he described this way: "His hair was in knots, his clothes were rags, and he had not shaved in several days." The man asked Robert, "Hey, where you from? Germany? England? You ain't from around here." When Robert answered that he was from Texas, the man replied: "Texas. I know Texas. Why would I lie to you. I hate Texas." The man then asked Robert to eat with him. Robert recalled that he "just let him fthe manj talk in circles for about five minutes. He cursed the world and every other thing that came to mind." Then Robert asked the man's name, and he said, "Henry" "I asked him his last name," Robert said, "and he said, just Henryf " The line that Robert said he would never forget from the conversation came later, however. When Robert asked how long the man had lived in New York, he answered, "Live here? I die here. You ain't born to live, you were born to die. I may die tonight."

When Rachel discussed the "scanty crowds" with one of the Spanish Chris- tians after one night's conference, she found that the woman wasn't discouraged by the small numbers. The woman, achel said, was encouraged because the Anglo Christians inally were directing an effort at her people. "We've been waiting for this a long time," the woman said. Of course, the campaigns also allowed time for par- ticipants to become close friends and to build their faith through encouraging one another.

Courting the crowd The Harlem Globetrotters gave the audience in Moody Coliseum plenty to laugh at Feb. 4 with their antics, in- cluding slam dunks, bickering with the referees and pulling down the socks ofthe opposing team. The team, led by Captain Twiggy Sanders, entertained the crowd for about two hours. Unlike a regular basketball game, the audience was in the spotlight during the game. Audience members got to come out on the court for disco lessons while others chose to sit in their seats and be drench- ed with buckets of confetti. A professional team, the Washington Generals, provided the opponent and the straight man in the Globetrotters' comedy routine. The Trotters defeated the Generals, 84-74, keeping alive the Globetrotters' winning streak that hasn't been broken since 1971, The exceptionally talented team plays about 250 games a year. 56 f Harlem Globetrotters 'ZW. ,, : .

Many people walked out before the 45-minute concert was over, and one student even fell asleep before he had a chance to leave. The concert was dominated by songs from Firefall's new album "Break of Dawn," but the audience most enjoyed old songs including "Cinderella," 'just Remember I Love You" and "Strange Way to Tell Me You Love Me." Firefall had early success in the late '70s with gold and platinum albums, but since the group's reorganization in 1982 the group has only met with mild success with its album "Luna Sea." The SA lost about 34,600 on the concert, said Glenn Ad- dison, SA treasurer.

Chris' first performance was on the golf course at the La- t Classic in October, and his second appearance was on age March 10 at Hardin-Simmons University. Not too many students went out to see him on the golf Jurse, but he said at the time that he rationalizes that "I'll rite a better song ifl play golf." Those "better songs" were e things that interested most students, and were what drew ie crowd to the latter performance. II'21f1S1I1OI1 Chris was quite popular with students as a contemporary Christian recording artist, producer and song writer. He also was gaining popularity as a pop singer, after deciding to "turn the business aspect over to pop music and put Chris- tian music back to a ministry" in his life. The concert at HSU included mostly contemporary Chris- tian music. But as Chris worked on making that transition to a pop singer, most of his recent works had been in the pop music world. He had recorded two albums with a group called "Cotton, Lloyd and Christian" and produced his own solo pop album. He also had released two singles that had made the Top 40 charts by October.

You really hadn't finished school yet, and there you 'ere going through the ceremonies. You kept thinking back to the stage. As you walked into me coliseum you remembered looking for your relatives in ection O and finding out later they were sitting in Section Z. Then you had to stand and wait for all the other graduates E parade in. It was during that 20 minutes when you began notice how large your class was. You had listened to the challenge Don Drennan issued to ie class and wondered if you would be the next graduate he alled on to use as an example. It would be the last time you eard someone tell you to go out and be a leaderg from now in people would expect you to be the leader. You remembered your thoughts when the time came to re hooded. "Mom, please don't knock my cap off!" You also remembered almost falling in the floor laughing t that guy on the third row who stood with the first row when they went to receive their diplomas. You watched people walk across that stage whom you lidn't remember ever seeing in your four years at ACU. 'When Dr. C. G. Gray announced their names and said "with iighest honors," you realized they knew the librarians better han you knew where the library was. As each friend walked across, you remembered some of he things you did together.

Graduation day was history now, and you had to get up 'arly for that test.

Pullen Folks X Freshmen The Officers Trying to round up the more than 1,000 new students from every part of the country, and then forming them into some kind of cohesive unit was the officers' task. The first really unifying experience for the class, said Mike Sheppard, senator from Katy, was the all-night ringing of the bell for "Hammer the javs" weekend. Watching the sun rise together certainly made many people much closer, he said. The biggest surprise - and relief - for the officers was the number of people who came to events they had planned. Braced to handle overwhelming apathy, they found they couldn't second-guess their classmates: freshmen always came in large crowds, even to smaller-scale gatherings such as the Valentine social. The "Find Your Sweetheart" theme attracted the best attendance of all parties that year. What mention of freshmen could be made without lauding their success in Sing Song 1985? They stole the show with all the appeal and excitement they had been showing throughout the year. President Russell Harrison didn't sing with the class, but he felt justified in bragging on their performance and on director Les Hunter. "It was good to see them win," he said. "I ftlr good because I had voted for Les," referring to the selection process of the class Sing Song director. It was their first year here. Their first year to set goals and ro set marks. What plans did these officers have? "We want to be the best class," Mike Anderson, senator from Richardson, said definitely. They appeared to be well on their way to becoming just that.

You can date who you want to, study when you choose and stay out as late as you please. and now that you've finally left the nest you realize, like pros: freshmen, that there's no place like home. Even so, the freedom that comes with college life is a good feeling. With that freedom, however, come the realities of life, and the word responsibility takes on a new meaning. No .onger does it mean taking out the garbage for your weekly allowance. Instead washing your own clothes, balancing your own checkbook, and, for many, setting your own alarm :onstitute responsibility. You suddenly realize you are not as mature as you hought. Your parents are no longer "Old men, nerds, con- ervative squares, or Bible bangersf' but people. And, best of all, they are your friends. After the newness of college wears off, loneliness sets in. lKaren Robinson from California said, "If I could have gone home that first month I probably wou1dn't have come back." You reach out to past relationships searching for something to fill the void. Long-distance phone calls to far- away friends have Dad on the warpath. You try to explain how you needed a friendly shoulder to cry on, but somehow a S200-a-month counseling session doesn't jive with Dad. Thanksgiving comes just in time to rescue you from the depths of depression, and you go home hoping to return to the old gang. But this is the time of realization. The old gang is just not the same, and quite to your disillusionment, neither is home. "It was really weird," Karen said. "I had been on my own all semester, and when I went home I had to tell my parents where I was going, when I would be back and who I was go- ing with. I wasn't use to that anymore." It suddenly dawns on you that you have changed and ad- justed to a new lifestyle. Things will never be the same again. Encountering these problems and many more are all a very real part of being a freshman. So if you were wondering whether you were the only one with these thoughts, put your fears to test. You were among friends. And most of them felt the same way. -- Kelbf Tolron ,W ii ,Q ' ,Q it if ef X, 'granite .

The camp was introduced in the fall of 979 to help incoming freshmen get better acquainted and orm a bond of unity within the class. During the first week of school the campus buzzed with iuestions and tales about Fish Camp. "Do they really make ou dive into a mud pit?" The camp was more than mud pits, though. Discussion essions and speakers were also a major part of the weekend t Lake Brownwood, where the camp took place. Campers came back to school with new friends, stories ,bout Fish Glympics and the food. "The rolls they feed you, ihey're just . . . oh, those rolls," said one camper. By the third veek of school, the campus had basically two kinds of ireshmen. Those who went to Fish Camp, and those who vished they'd gone. The "I can't believe you missed it" response couldn't help aut make a person feel anti-social. "I waited too late," said john Sikes, regretfully. "The way he guys talked I missed a lot. They got to know a lot more Leople, mostly girls." One freshman coed said she wouldn't have gone, but her sarents had seen an advertisement for it in the mail and sent he money in. "I liked feeling free to talk to anyone," she aid of the camp. Everyone who commented on Fish Camp noted the closeness that the weekend of playtime induced. Kathie Henry said she went because "everybody" went. She said her sister went on the very first freshman retreat and urged Kathie to go. "It helped Cruel get over the homesicknessj' Kathie said. Kathie said the distance and the nervousness feel around upperclassrnen were partially mingling with counselors. "Getting all together one weekend with juniors and seniors made at home, like a big family. And we became more ofa class." The memories of Fish Camp are so good there's even a rush to be a counselor. Paul Hancock said it was difficult keep the number down to a live-to-one camper-to-counselor ratio. -- Amy Haweld X r , g s - i'ii N i . I 'sie yi at '11 swims- J . ,... s.all'2'r 'i r ff? 'J .

It took a lot of effort, but most freshmen thought it was all worthwhile. The theme "Simple Splendor" was chosen to portray that "something simple can turn out to be great," said johnna Friddell, Freshman Follies performance chairman, from Her- mitase, Tenn. "We really enjoyed it. Even if we didn't know the people we were working with at first, the common bond of Freshman Follies enabled us to work together," said Randy McDonald, freshman from Gilmer. Michelle Eckhart, freshman from Orland Park, Ill., per- formed with a group of women from McDonald Hall. She said the group "developed a real togetherness. I also got to know the girls and learned a lot by working with them." Alan Rich, freshman from San Antonio, said that "Follie drew the class together. It was a major production with all oi us coming in and not knowing each other. It also got the class excited about bein at ACU." The freshmen involved in the show all stressed the impor- tance of the opportunity to meet new friends. Randy said. "Some of my best friends now were in Follies. I wouldnt have met them ifl hadn't been involved." Freshman Follies 1982 may not be long remembered by those who were in the audience, but the freshmen who wer a part of it won't easily forget all the time, work and fun thai went into the show. But most of all they will not forget the friends they made because of "Simple Splendor." -- Tammy Dablof r ef- vi T1"'Wf C I -nr -Q ,,-au-1 Haley, Ladana Hall, Brett Hall,'Ianice Hall, Shannon Hall, Stephen Hallett, Mary Haltom,-Iennifer Hamby, Michael Hamilton, Michael Hammond, Camy Hammonduloel Hampton, Kathy Haney, Debra Hardin, Wendy Hargrove, Felicia Harkness, William Harp, Robert Harrell,john Harrington, Cindy Harris, Deidre Harrison, Russell Harrott, Robert Hart, Charlie Hart, Kerri Harville, Gregory Haskell, Ruth Hatcher, Richard Hatter, Dean Hayes, Atrell Haynes, Carmen Hays, Kimberly Heath, Dana Helderman, Tina Helm, Debra Helterbrand, Chris Henderson, Donna Henderson, Gary Hendry,-Iennifer Henry, Kathie Hensz, Rebecca Herrold,jana Hess,jennie Hestand, Linda Hibbs, Amy Hickman, Nancy Hiett, Donna Higginbotham, Eric Higginbothamjody Higginbotham, Rita Higgins, Tina Hill, Dana Hill, Holly Hlll, Jana Hillier, Lisha Hillyard, Cynthia Hixon, Karen Hodges, Gina Holden, Bobby Holland, Reggie Holt, Greg Hood, Don Hopkins, Tamika Horne, Pam Houchin, Kathy Howard, Dewey Howard,justin Howerton, Dana Hudson,john Huff, Craig Huff, Sherry Hughes, Mark Humphreys, Laurie Freshmen 71 Freshmen Hunt, Renee Hunter, Kelly Hunter, Leslie Hunter, Mary Hutcheson, Cynthia Hutto, Michele Ingram, Matthew Inman, Dawna Innings, Tina Isbell,john Isenhower, Martin Ivy, Carole jackson,jill jackson, Mark jacques, Geniene jennings, Lisa jergins,jerri jett, Brian johnson, Charla johnson, Deann johnson, Debbie johnson,jeff johnson, Scott joiner, Neva jones, Deborah jones, Stephanie jones, Tammy joy,james Kainer, Kim Kallus, Stephan Karasmanis, Thanos Kasulaitis, Ronda Kelly,joanne Kelsoe, Kari Kenton, Kelly Kiefer.

Similarly, the way to the top of a business is to start at an entry-level position and climb through the ranks. And much to the dismay of many students, the only way to become a graduate is to start at the bottom of the heap as a "fish" Beginning the trek to the top of the academic ladder is a try- ing task for most freshmen. Making that transition from being the top dog in high school to nothing more than a nobody is pretty hard to swallow - especially if you were the captain of the football team, student body president or class favorite. It's difficult going from being a good man on the football team to having to prove yourself to guys who are just as good - or better - than you are, said Keith Myer, freshman from Carroltori. !m,wana-W.

She came from a school "where everyone knew everybody," she said. "Sometimes I feel like I don't belong here," Tawn said. But through activities like Freshman Follies and Sing Song she has met logs of other freshmen who often feel the same way. Most freshmen agreed that freshman orientation and Fish Camp got them off to a good start at ACU.-Iohnna Friddell, a freshman radio-television major from Nashville, Tenn., said she was homesick at Fish Camp, but the upperclassman counselors were encouraging and related experiences of when they were freshmen that were comforting to hear, said johnna. john Slaughter, a freshman math and computer science major from Houston, said he didn't have much trouble adjusting to ACU. He introduced himself to people and ran for freshman president. "You have to step out on a limb to try to meet peo- ple," he said. But others aren't always as outgoing, and a lot of freshmen sit in their dorm rooms not knowing anyone but their roommate. Sheryl Mann, a freshman nursing major from Harlingen, said he spent a lot of time in her room feeling alone. "It took me nearly a whole semester to feel at home at ACU," said Sheryl. But she said she learned that the best way not to meet people is to stay in your room. She said some of the best places to meet new friends are standing in the Bean line and eating in the Bean. Laurie Wilson, a pre-law major from Houston, agreed that freshmen shouldn't stay in their rooms all the time. She said she would encourage incoming freshmen to be in Freshman Follies and Sing Song. "I was scared when I first came to ACU. I wasn't sure how I would meet people," Laurie said, But the many freshman activities made it easier to meet others, she said. So don't despair if you're at the bottom now, the top of the mountain is in sight. Graduation is another year closer, and the trek will be much more pleasant if you'll only leave your fears - and your dorm room - behind. -Andrea Cannedy Freshmen f 73 Freshmen If dorm walls could talk . . . Traditions have been handed down through the genera- tions, but none are as annoying, exasperating or fun as those that are passed inside the dormitories. And each year freshmen add a new twist to the established door slams, water balloon fights and stereo wars. Most of the jokes were not new to the school but only to the incoming generation of proud pranksters. "I get most of my ideas from upperclassmenj' confided one freshman resi- dent of Edwards dorm. When incoming freshmen were told about all the wild times in the dorm, nobody bothered to mention the reasons behind these quests for excitement: boredom, overcoming homesickness or just a great sense of humor. They would find that out their sophomore year. Home seemed so far away and all its regulations were a thing of the past. Unfortunately, dorm regulations were not. For every one of the rules set down by parents at home students could count on learning to abide, or break, that many rules - if not more - at their ACU dorm homes. To most freshmen the hardest part of living in a dorm was the curfew, but for a few even that wasn't a problem. "I think curfew's okay," said Kenda Childes, "I always went to bed at nine anyway." Cindy Tinsley saw curfew and several other dorm rules as a hindrance to maturing. "If they would put some trust in us it would help," she said. "They are trying to teach us discipline, but it's theirs, not ours." The women of McKinzie dorm never experienced the problem of running out of hot water. Nothing less than scalding water ever boiled out. Always thrifty, the men werent ones to let a half dozen showers stand idle when a flick of the wrist could transform a bathroom into a fair replica of a club steam room. "We don't let anybody in without a towel," Tommy Dollard said firmly. When pennying doors shut lost its challenge, a quick survey among freshman women about topics like the defini- tion of "lip," or which way women prefer to tilt their head when being kissed, could provide ample entertainment. Someday, in the not too distant future, you'll be talking to a friend and say, "Do you remember when we were in the dorm and . . - Amy Haweld 5 . , sg, . p N ss' gl Ill ill il! wma Ng, Q ..,....

Such were the thoughts of the typical ACU freshma when confronted with the Bean - shock, surprise or mayb just a confirmation of the worst fears. It was cafeteria food: Bean food, chow, eats, foodstuff? feed, grub, vittles. It was whatever you wanted to call it. Bt it still tasted the same. Unfortunately not many people seen ed to be happy with the Bean, especially freshmen. "I found what I expected," said Pam Zeigler, freshma from Waco. "My brothers and sisters graduated from ACU and cam home with some pretty bad stories about the Bean. Sol knew I'd better be prepared." Pam said she didn't think th Bean was all bad, however: "They were fast." i But Mark Rainwater, freshman from Harrold, sail "They're inconsistent, Sometimes you would go in there ati they'd have three pretty good things to eat and other timii there wouldn't be anything." Mark became pretty familiar with the food, thougl "Sometimes I'd see the very same food I passed up the othi day sitting right there. I would suggest the food be fres every day and with a better variety." Denise Whiteside, freshman from Abilene, thought tl Bean had gotten worse over the years. Denise had bee eating in the Bean for eight out of the last 10 years. "We came over from Abilene Christian High School t eat lunch and from what I remember, it had gone downhil They seemed to take alot of shortcuts," she said. But not every freshman felt totally negative about tl Bean. Holly Hill, from Locust, NJ., was very realistic aboi the Bean. "I didn't expect anything great. I thought the were a quality cafeteria. They couldn't beat mom's hom cooking, but they did a great job." l Something was done to alleviate the overwhelmid negative majority opinion. A committee was serving as liaison between the student body and the company that rur the Bean, Professional Food Management. jam: Whitehead, junior from Lubbock, served as the chairma "We accepted criticisms, complaints and suggestions fi PPM to take action on," said Whitehead. So goes the difference of opinion. Is the Bean foc distasteful, abhorrent or just the same as it's always been fi the past 77 years? --Elise Smith 1 'C ,e x ..,,, X is Self.

Organizing any class activity was like trying to gather up the wind. At least that's what it seemed like to frustrated of- ficers who tried to muster some class enthusiasm. The biggest pull was from the different social clubs, said President Robert Pitman. "Sophomores generally applied themselves to their studies more during that year than they had before," he said, "but they also spent time pledging club." "Planning something that didn't conflict with club was almost impossible," added Tracy McDonald, vice president. The real problem, they said, was that the people who were active in the class also were the ones likely to be active in their clubs. So the loyal members who had made so many activities successful were no longer around to work with. McDonald said the officers had actually believed their class would be different and not have the "drastic change" that had affected classes before them. That thought quickly disappeared. But one good quality the sophomores possessed that did not die was the willingness of so many to volunteer to help with campus events. McDonald said even officers of other classes had remarked that the sophomores could always be counted on for service to the school. - Amy Hrzfeld FRONT ROW: Ginger Barnett, secretaryg Dale Butler, senator.

Answers varied from "No vayl" to "I can't wait!" And the reasons behind -ach answer were just as diverse. People had diverse attitudes about social zlubs, but of those who pledged, the attraction eemed to be opportunities to meet people. Michelle Hodges, sophomore from Abilene, aid, "I pledged Siggies so I could get to know he upperclassmen and spend time with them. j l'he nearest thing I found was that I enjoyed 'eally getting to know all the members. There were so many different people and different personalities." Melinda Pesqueira, junior from San Diego, Calif., gave :he same reason for devoting eight weeks to be initiated into Kojo Kai. "Pledging gave me a good chance to meet more people and to get to know them better outside of the lassroomf' Involvement was an attraction Mark Stephen, sophomore from Houston, saw in pledging Galaxy men's social club. "I anted to spend more time with school activities, and club rovided me several opportunities to become involved in ifferent projects," he said. But not everyone pledged a club. In fact, only about 800 out of the 4,500 students claimed allegiance to one of the 13 social clubs on campus. Some people pledged a club only to change their minds and depledge. For some it was the best alternative. "The reason I pledged is that I needed to become more involved with other people," said Elaine Kinzie, sophomore from Ennis. "But I depledged. There were a lot of different reasons why I did, but mostly I Couldrft deal with all the pressure to keep my grades up." Elaine was not "anti-club," as some referred to those who were against social clubs and their existence. "I feel mixed about club now," she said. "It's fine for some people. If you have the time, it's a great way to meet so many people. But there comes a point when you have to prioritize." Tammy Fielder, senior from Brownwood, never pledged a social club. "I didn't feel the need to pledge. I saw a lot of things I didn't like in social clubs. People seemed to form their own little groups, excluding others," she said. if M5- ina in Ni?

Others wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Others stuck it out a while longer. The one thing nobody really paid attention to was the fact that housing around the Hill was notoriously scarce. "I started a list in january of people who wanted a house the next December," said Debby Welborn, a. , , who along with husband Gaston Welborn, university at- torney, maintained several rentals near school. However, many people griped about the fattening car- bohydrates they got from the Bean. However annoyed they were about having to rush straight back to the dorm after a concert to make curfew, they still put very little time and ef- fort into finding a place to live.

By the second year here some pretty close friends can bl made. Was all the fun of living together we-rth the gambli that it also may have destroyed a friendship. "Yes, I admit it, I'm paranoid," stated Suzanne Balfour, Q sophomore from Cleveland Heights, Ohio. "I really wantet to get along with my roommates." Balfour said she fearei she'd move in with people she liked and they wouldn't gd along. l Those who just talked about living in Sherrod assume: they would get their reservations. Not a second thought wa given to the possibility that they might wait too long tr sign-up and end up being 10 minutes shy of a reservation. Preferring to face the cold world on her own, Melody Townsel, sophomore from De Soto, quickly tripped rumor, that she might stay another year in the dorms. "Offl Offl' she said. Townsel said her living accommodations were fairly sure since she and another sophomore were moving in Maj and staying through the summer. Although she didn't plan to beat the rush, she did thi right thing. Mrs. Welborn said many of her tenants left a pet son or two to hold the place for the summer. Kelly Turner, a sophomore from Austin, said she had at apartment but would have liked a house. She admitted she should have looked before spring break, but said confidently she'd seen people come to school and "grab something ai the last minute," so she wasn't worried. The men seemed even less concerned. "If I fini something, I find something," Kevin Russell, a sophomorj from Rome, N,Y., said. Along that line, Greg Poster, a sophomore from Wichita Falls, had vague plans about living in a house. But no, they werent looking yet. What were they going to do in August if they were houseless, dormless and hopeless? Camp out? "That could be fun," he said. "Might be smelly about midterm. But no! We could shower in the gym . .

'X Q17 Ns .--"""h -ffl.: Firmlizing cl major For some students receiving the final degree plan was uite an accomplishment. Many students knew all along hat they wanted to major in so the degree plan was merely i formality. But, to some, the degree plan represented hours, nonths or maybe even years of deliberation. Most students selected a major some time during their iophornore year. Ken Rasco, registrar, said 50 to 75 percent if the sophomore class reported a major this year, The deci- iion was final in some cases, but in others it was merely the Jeginning of many "major" changes. The degree plan, to many freshmen and sophomores, was is clear as mud. Elizabeth Fry, sophomore, said she had no dea that she needed a degree plan. And, when she received ier degree plan, she could not decipher what she had taken Jr needed to take, The degree plan lingo often needed :ranslation from personnel in the registrars office. Students often had hopes of fulfiling childhood dreams when selecting a majorg but to their dismay, some sophomores found their dreams unreachable at ACU. Bruce Heyen, sophomore, said he wanted to be a firemen in his younger days, but no classes in the catalog were listed for Fire Fighting 1101. Some women aspired to become models, out no major existed to achieve that goal either. So . , . most students were back to the drawing board for new ideas. Finally they settled on something, whether it be eology, Spanish or law enforcement. If no major of interest as found, business administration or elementary education ecame popular choices. Of course, some students often chose not to follow the crowd and dived into Greek or animal science. For some students other factors played a role in selecting a major. Bonnie Arvin, junior, said she just followed the roup to the communication department during freshman rientarion. When asked why she chose that group, she said, "The guy who led the group was good looking." Luckily she did like the field and didn't change her major, When the Hella Book finally arrived each semester, sophomores anxiously searched to see that their newly- selected major was correctly reported, along with their phone number. If they thought deciphering the degree plan was tough, they were definitely in for a treat when they tried to figure out what these codes represented. For example, students majoring in HE could be human evolution majors, rather than home economics majors. To students interested in mass communication, ENG might have represented a specailized major in electronic news gathering, rather than English.

Other students, many seniors, just couldn't Q get enough of the registrar's office and kept going back semester after semester. Sophomores found their niche in the ACU society when they decided on a major. The search for a major may have represented much anguish, but students discovered the trou- ble was worth it when the hours began to be behind them, - rather than ahead. - Tammy Dalylaf I T' ' r, Williams, Dana Williams, Donna Williams, Leah Williams, Leslie Williams, Pamela Williamson, Scott Wilson, Karen Wilson, Suzanne Wimberley, Eddie Witcher, Bert Woodall, Bruce Woolly,jill Worsham, Amy Wright, Carol Yandell, Tim Yarbrough, David Yates, Durinda Yaws, Samuel Young, Kelly Young, Wilson Yowell, Virginia Sophomores 91 zmiors The "The role of the junior class traditionally has been that opinion-leaders," said class senator Brad Cheves. Brad, a finance major from said juniors were looked to for leadership the seniors. Freshmen looked to all the other e seniors weren't around campus as much just as the climb up the ladder brought with it respect, it also added new dimensions to the class' overall personality. ln response to that, the roles of the officers senators had to change. By their junior year, class members more inclined academically and definitely esta niches, Brad said. Consider the junior class' performance in Sing Song. The chorus sound didn't come without dedicated practice. The intensity and effort put into the show came ringing through with each note. This group didn't take responsibility lightly. "The junior class was stable. It was made up of a lot of solid individuals that could be depended on," said Brad. "They had talent in so many different areas." In accordance with the shift of interests, the class representatives' responsibility to the class changes, said Robert Reagan, a public relations major from Leander. After being a senator for three years, Robert said he'd observed that his work with the Students' Association had gone more from being class-oriented to being related to school functions. But working with the class and keeping everyone unified was still one of the most important jobs of the class officers. - Amy Hafeld FRONT ROW:jay Bailey, Kyle Carter.

O - Lost in the shuffle It was the beginning of your junior year. You'd made it fer the hump of the first two years and were looking down stead of up the road to graduation - or so it would seem. our grades were in "not so good" to "so-so" shape and au felt a little bit lost as to where you fit in. It seemed like nobody knew what class you fell into. You joked too old to be a sophomore but maybe not experienc- l enough to be a senior. Yet, most people usually asked mu, "You're a sophomore, aren't you?" or, 'iYou're going i graduate in May, right?" When you said you were a junior iey might have replied, "Oh, a junior." What an answer, as juniors were some type of scientific wonder. j You probably moved off campus this year and began to btice the change. No longer did you have buddies down ie hall, but housemates whom you saw every single day, hether you liked it or not. Life didn't revolve around the lmpus as much as it did your first two years, the class as a fhole became more diversihed and you began to lose con- jct with some of those buddies from down the hall. jAs the year wore on, projects in classes began to get laviet. You remember someone telling you the junior year jwhen you really get into your major. And as you started etting behind, the five-year graduation plan began to ecome a possibility.

"It" might have been the presiden- cy ofa club or organization or a director of some event. As spring set in, your feeling of limbo began to leave and you started making plans for your senior year, You might have watched some of the seniors as they got ready to leave. You saw them typing resumes, sweating through interviews and, worst of all, saying goodbye to friends for maybe the last time. You, too, saw some friends for the last time, and a different kind of limbo began to set in. But you didn't let it get you down, you still had one more year left and almost everyone you wanted to see would be back. Next year you could stand up and say "l'm a senior" and a certain amount of respect would be cast upon you that wasn't there your junior year. Hardly ever would anybody ask you if you were a sophomore or a senior now because you'd let everyone know you would be getting out in May. Still there were going to be those few who didn't remember you were a senior but would suddenly recall that illusive classification and say, "You're a junior this year, aren't you?" -- Cbarler L.

Q Finally, you made it out of the dorm and into a place of your own. The fact that you had to share it with three other people was a minor consideration. What was important was getting off campus. The realities of being on your own came slowly but sure- ly: cooking wasn't the thrill it used to be, refrigerators didn't defrost themselves, and dishes always had to be done. Living off campus wasn't cheap either. After you got that 3100 gas bill for january you realized why Dad always yelled about shutting the front door. However, most juniors were willing to suffer a few inconveniences to be on their own after two years in the dorm. Off-campus living did have its good points, though. Pro- bably the greatest attraction was the privilege of staying out as late as you wanted. Shelli Barger, a junior from Austin, said what she liked about living off campus was that "you weren't pressured for a specific time to come in." Kelly Hargrove, a junior from Kansas City, Mo., said the best thing about off-campus living was "that you didn't feel like you were always at school." Living off campus did have some drawbacks, however. Laura Williams, a senior from Arlington, said, "Although not living in the dorm was great, you lost contact with the student body and saw only a select group of people." After living off campus for awhile, you began to make discoveries about the 'ireal world." Below is a compilation of several years of off-campus knowledge, things you wish you'd known when you first moved out of the dorms. 1. Who supplied the dishes for the household? Paper plates quickly may have become the standard, No one wanted to wash dishes and one person always seemed to be a "butter fingers" when it came to carrying dishes. But if everybody decided to bring stuff, you may have ended up with assorted plates and glasses, six skillets, four spatulas, five popcorn poppers, one bowl and no spoons. 2. How many stereos and televisions did you really need? You should have discussed this before you brought your own so the person with the best stereo and TV would be nominated. Otherwise, you ended up with a radio and TV in every room of a three-bedroom house. 3. Where were you going to get furniture? If you weren' lucky enough to rent a furnished place, you started with thi essentials: fal stereo cabinet, fbl couch for dates -- just ii case you ever got any, fel beds. After those three were taker care of you took what you could get - even if it mean eating off of a card table while sitting on catalogs. After moving in, no doubt other problems arose that yoj did not forsee, such as how to arrange the living roorrj whose bed had to be by the door and which cabinet thi dishes would be placed in. These matters probably werl decided by a house vote. But what really got you were roommates who mixed uj the spoons and forks and who didn't refill ice trays after fix ing tea. No manner of voting could change habits like that. Having to share the same closet was another disadvantag of off-campus living. No longer could you pile your clothe on the closet floor, because your roommate turned out to b a "cleanliness-next-to-godliness fanatic." Cooking was a pressing problem when you first mover off campus. If there were four or more, a rotating schedul worked for the first couple of weeks until you found ou who could really cook - and who couldn't. But in the following weeks you began to realize Ham burger Helper had only so many variations. Dinner becam the one meal you ate with all your roommates. One adven ture a day was enough. , Lunch was cataloged as "fend for yourselfl' and usuallj ended up as a Whopper. Breakfast was for health nuts. j Heidi Neiderheiser, a junior from Roseville, Calif., sail privacy is what she liked most about living off campus. Bd privacy is a relative term with roommates. Having 10 peopl over to cut out Sing Song costumes was private compared tj everyone on the second floor of a dorm coming to yoii room when you ordered a pizza. But even that wasn't th kind of privacy you had in mind. A Even with all the problems and disadvantages, living oi your own was an experience you'll never forget. -- Kelli Tolion and Charles L.

The social life went down the ubes. The library became a second home. and a gnawing :oncern made those long hours of studying seem really mportant. Why the sudden change after two years of fun! It was the SPA rush that hit your junior year. You realized that your grades were not as good as they needed to be, and time was 'unning out to raise them. Everyone had his own reasons for not doing well those iirst two years of college. Reasons ranged from "I'm still ad- usting my study habits from high school" to "my classes :his semester are tough . . . really. they are." Brett Porter, junior accounting major from Dallas, said, 'During my junior year I wanted to improve my GPA. but :he classes were getting more in-depth so I found myself struggling harder to maintain the same level." Matt Ray, junior mass communication major from Dallas. disagreed. "I studied very seldom. I used my study time wise- .y, but I didn't do it veryrnuchf' Concerning why studnets didn't do as well the first two years. Mary Kirschner, junior biology major from Fort Worth, said that "students didnt develop proper study habits in high school. College was a new environment. and :here was a big emphasis on dating and extracurricular activities." Scott Bybee, junior accounting major from Niles, Mich., hr..-.-:-2' iii' Wi ,L-e i -.:' -Ai in 72' Q, EV E' I . -'L'! g,', . ill , as ' said, "I think it was okay to slack off the first two 'years before getting serious about studies because you were busy establishing friendships that would be important to you dur- ing your junior and senior years." Mary, on the other hand, said, "No, I didnt think it was okay. but I did it anyway. Ifl had it to do over again I would work harder my freshman and sophomore years so the junior and senior years wouldnt have so much pressure." "As you looked at individual classes, grades probably wouldnt have had that big of an impact. The classes were generally required classes. But in your overall GPA. your freshman and sophomore years weighed very heavily," said Mary. Sometimes people expected - and accepted -- the fact that the first two years of college were an adjustment period and shouldn't be taken too seriously. But others believed that was a risky judgment, especially when it came to job time. Mary summed up her feelings about the GPA rush and the adjustment that needed to be made: "You were forced to make an adjustment whether you were ready or not. I was ready for my last years. but I didn't expect them to be easy." You kept burning the midnight oil and drank strong cof- fee to keep you awake. Well, was it worth it? If so, you did good. If not, you blew some big bucks and lost a lot of sack time. -jonathan Gibbr Smith, Paul Smith. Roger Sneed. Lori Sorrells, Stephen Southward. Kris Sparks. Sandra Spence. Karen Spencer. Billy Spot.

The last year of undergraduate study. By that time, it was not likely that a substantial chunk of the original men and women who came to this campus in 1979 were still here. Transfers, dropouts, early grads and late grads left holes in another class that was looking forward to graduation. The use of the term "class" might be misleading. Seniors are always scattered in every direction when that final spring rolls around. After the second year, living off campus and immersion in a rnaior are two reasons classes begin to drift apart. Refocusing of attention to the outside world tended to destroy the unity attributable to any class. Senior senator Mark Edge, Greek major from Winnsboro, said his class had beaten the stereotype fairly well. He said his class remained fairly close. "Nothing to change the world," he said, but he pointed to the "Senior Citizen Follies" and the 85 people who sang with the class during Sing Song as examples of the seniors' loyalty. "We were close, but sometimes we were diversified," said Mark. "It was natural for the seniors to split up, but to still have a lot of roots." "The fact is, you're going to split. Everybody in our class found their niche. That's fine," he said. "We got to a point where we didnt have to have a whole community of kids to tell us what to do. It was all a part of growing up." Finally, Mark emphasized the need for spiritual consisten- cy. "It's not important to build a mountain top . . . if you're consistent you can handle finding your place and not split- ting the class." - Amy Hatfield FRONT ROW: jim McKissick, jamie DeBoise, SECOND ROW: Glenn Beasley, Paul Hancock.

So it was with interviewing and getting a job. You alone 'ere the one who had to answer the questions. You were the ne who had to impress that executive vice president sitting cross the desk from you. No one else but you could go trough the interviewing process. And not just interviewing, but getting motivated to put 0 the bun! Jgether a resume and send out letters to get those inter- iews was something no one else could do for you, either. After experiencing the joys and pains of job hunting first nd, we all felt like experts when it came to informing hers about this monumentous task and the many trials and :elings to be anticipated. First was obviously the motivation factor. Once you ealized that your days on the ACU campus were numbered, ou knew you had to start looking for a job. How long could you put this off? Forever, if you were itistied with the thought of standing in the unemployment ne every week of your life and coming up with a different accuse for the welfare people every month. But most of us were probably not excited by the thought f doing that for the rest of our lives. Maybe for a few years, jut not really forever. So we were back to square one: how D deal with the inevitable feeling of procrastination and lecome motivated to put together a resume. l We never had any previous problems convincing people low great we were. Why did this project seem so hideous? llaybe it was the thought of having to put our real weight lown under "Personal Data." Or maybe it was the fear of aving to list that not-so-hot GPA. 1 After having waded through that mess, we were still faced ith the prospect of having to sit through an interview. The ought of that dreaded inquisition was enough to make us udclet. What would we say if the flawlessly-dressed man behind the desk asked our name? Should we give it to him? Would we be able to remember it? If we were able to endure that torture, we actually had a shot at the job. Not a day passed that we didn't run to our boxes to check the mail, or drop by Mrs. Scott's placement office in Zellner to give her an update. Finally, we received word: rejection. How could we tell Mom and Dad? How could we face Mrs. Scott? Surely there had been some mistake.

Seniors f 109 Seniors Looking back Memories. A door to the past. The greatest joy j and contentment can be experienced in remember- ing old friends and the time spent with them. Some people remember the good, some the bad. Some have advice for the freshmen, while others wish the freshmen would give them some advice. . Leslie Alexander, senior from Hurst, viewed her years at ACU as a time for improving herself. "I leave here with achievements I never thought I could accomplish. I'm graduating with a degree, I have lived four years on my own, and most im- portantly I've gained independence and con- fidence in myself and my abilities." But why ACU? A question familiar to many a student and one many a student has asked of himself. What does ACU have that other schools don't? "ACU is like any other place," insisted Wes Thorn- ton, senior from Cedar Hill. "You get out of it what you put into it." "I came here expecting to solve my spiritual pro- blems, but I learned that was something I had to do for myself," he said. "ACU could only provide the atmosphere. But the atmosphere is so positive. It's so rare but in such a great abundance here. We just have to work hard at keeping it so plentiful." Some people came to ACU because of circumstances beyond their control, namely their parents. Mary Onstead, senior from Houston, said, "I was one of those kids who came our here because I was informed that I could choose any college I wanted, but the money would go to ACU. I 'decided' this was the only school for me." But Mary had since had a change of heart. "What's so special about this place? That's easy. The people. They're different here. 'I'here's a closeness you don't find in high school or a state school, and that comes from Christ. Andrea Cannedy, senior from Jerome, Idaho, came to ACU as a junior transfer student from Idaho State Universi- ty. She had doubts as to whether she could get a good education from a Christian school. "I didn't know if I would be sacrificing academics for 'atmospherej but now I believe Rohre, Susan Rokey, Mark Rollinson.

Plus I have a bonus, a Christian - perspective that has taught me a lot about ethics." jeff Curtis, senior from Houston, found two reasons ' for coming to ACU: "For the Christian education and to find a Christian wife." But jeff also had some advice for the freshmen that extended beyond simplicities. "I would ad- vise the freshmen to get involved with their class and to pat- ticipate in as many activities as possible, especially things like Fish Camp and Sing Song," he said. Some seniors had regrets, too. "The thing I regret the most was that I didn't get involved with the people in a church as soon as possible," said Thad Walker, senior from Boulder, Colo. "I think this is the most important part of a person's life and I neglected that." What people have been saying all along seems to be true - people and the time spent with them are the most impor- tant parts of ACU. And those qualities are what make reminiscing so enjoyable. - Elise Smizb j 2 4... af ,fi we 'Q 'wx-1 w- .- 'V- 45 Shipp, Lance Shipp, Tanya Shuford, Tammy Sickes, Roberta Siddens, Debra Simpson, Sandra Smith, Anita Smith Bob Smith, Denise Smith, Elise Smith, Scott Smith, Natalie Smith, Sharon Smith Sid Smith, Vin Snell, Gary Soward, Milton Spencer, Kathy Stephens, Rebecca Stevens, Athena Stewart, Darrell Stewart, Teresa Stockdale, Mark Stone, Lana Stone, Wanda Story, Randy Strachan,janet Sugar, Scott Tate, Curtis Tate, Shannon Taylor, Laurie Taylor, Suzanne Thedford, Deborah Thomas, Todd .ow Cx' YI? 45.

Graduation seemed so far away and saying goodbye to college roommates and friends who we hadn't even met never crossed our minds. We met people in the Campus Center, in the Bean, at football games and even in the hall bathroom, all the time finding new people we could start conversations with: about classes, movies or anything that made us feel a little more comfortable. That first year brought many changes in our lives. Mom and Dad weren't around to talk to so we had to work out problems on our own. That's when we learned which friends we could depend on to help us. They helped Saying Goodbye 112 X Seniors Williamsjane Williams, Luara Willis, Paul Wilson, Cheri Wilson, Keith Wilson, Mark Wilson, Terri Wiseman, Barry Withers, Amy Witt, Don Witt, Lanny Wolford, Laurie Woodruff, Debra Yarbrough, David Yelman, Gabriella Young. Anita Young, Rendi us talk things out and brought new perspectives to our way of thinking. Many times a good long talk was much more important than an A on an English test. lt never seemed to fail though: The same ones who liked talking with us loved to see us try to open our door which had just been pennied shut. Laughing together was what we did most. jokes about the Bean, eight o'clock classes, dating and curfew were all new to us, even though they were as old as the school. We'll never forget that show-stopping chorus in Freshman Follies, and we know "there'll never be another follies like ours." Then our first Sing Song: no one had ever seen a costume light up before, and a chill went down the audiences spine when "one light, shining in the darkness" rang through a darkened coliseum as each light began to shine. Uncle Sam's troopers stormed into Moody for our next Sing Song and filled the Coliseum with patriotic comedy and pride. But we realized after Saturday night's performance it wasn't the vocal awards that were important. It was that person we stood next to for five weeks of rehearsals. Another friend was made. The people we lived off campus with were usually our clos- est friends or became some of the closest. We learned to give and take even more than when we shared our dorm rooms. We played card games until all hours of the night and ran from house to house seeing who wanted to help us water balloon the campus cops. And if we were really brave v took our Toyota for a few laps around the GATA founta before dashing off campus to our garage apartment in tl alley two blocks away. A friend who would go through th with us would surely last a lifetime. Suddenly, it was our turn to be the seniors. "You set tl examples." Now soap in the fountain became more annoyir than funny, and we began to notice that we just didn't hai time to see all the people we wanted to. We didn't wor: about that our junior year because we knew we still had or more year left before graduation. Those close friends became even closer as seniors, an "last" became a bittersweet four letter word. We wanted 1 graduate, but we wanted to take our friends with ns. "C forget the studying. I don't see you that often anyway," vi said. The more we tried to put off thinking about not seein our friends, the more we thought about it. Homecoming rolled around again and it took on moi meaning. It wasrrt a time for Mom and Dad to come see i at school, but a time when friends got together to remembi some good times. If those times hadn't been good, all tho: people at the football game wouldnt have come hack. It was a last time for us to be a part of Christmas ft Children, a last Bid Night, a last Sing Song, a last final exan a last look in the post office box. After our last spring break, the time to say goodbye dre' nearer. We needed that A or B, but we knew in 10 years th: grade wasn't what was important, the people were. Each tirr we saw a friend, underclassman or senior, it became a littl more important how we spent our time together. Finals were just around the corner, and we mapped or that final week. Who we would have lunch with Tuesds became as important as that biology exam. When we walke across that stage at graduation we knew it was time to go. That last week. Odd that we put off packing as long as vi could. Every handshake and every hug could never sho' how much we had wrapped up in our friends. We saved th: last time together with one special friend. We knew vi would see each other again, but we would never be as clot as at that moment. "Keep in touch now - I mean it." j And with that, we hugged each other one more time, sai goodbye again, closed the car door and drove away wavini "Goodbye" -- Charles L.

The desire for these integral parts of our lives to be emphasized was evident in the demand for a nationally-known seminar that had its roots at ACU, The Marriage Enrichment Seminar, conducted by Drs. Carl Brecheen and Paul Faulkner, began in 1974. Since that time more than 45,000 people had listened to the two pro- fessors talk about marriage and how to make it work, The idea for the seminar originated during a 1971 Vaca- tion Bible School in Overland Park, Kan. Brecheen spoke about the home to the adults in the congregation. The elders enjoyed the class so much they invited him to come back and speak to the teenagers of the congregation. In june of 1972, Brecheen and Faulkner returned to Overland Park and spoke again on the home. It was during the plane trip back to Abilene that "the seminar was born," said Brecheen. "We felt like we couldn't spend enough time 45-minute segments, had been shown all over the country and more than 100,000 people had seen them by 1982. With the two men working so closely, it seemed in- evitable that tension or competition might have surfaced in their relationship. But such was not the case. The two began their friendship in 1948 as roommates at Abilene Christian College. Since then their relationship had grown into a friendship of mutual trust and respect. "That friendship is crucial to the seminar's success," said Brecheen. "We have to make so many decisions that we must have confidence in each other. We must be able to trust each other. And we do." "Carl and I are not identical," said Faulkner, "but we real- ly fit together. You cannot have a deep friendship unless your wives are good friends - ours are." "Thirty-five years we've been so close," he said, "and to with everyone we wanted to. So in order to reach the hearts of families, we were going to have to reach the couples." Later that year Brecheen attended a weekend seminar at McMurry College where he became convinced he and Faulkner could come up with their own program. The two worked out a format and put together a 150-page seminar manual that participants could take home. In September of 1974, the first seminar took place in Houston. "The seminar is preventive in nature," said Brecheen, ex- plaining that their purpose is to save marriages from ending in divorce by offering couples solutions and alternatives. "By the time people come to a marriage counselor, scars are too deep. We wanted to get to people before the pro- blems arose," he said. After the seminar's success reached a point that the two were finding it almost impossible to keep up with the re- quests for the seminar, the idea of making a film seemed like an answer to prayers. "We were doing about 15 seminars a year and it was hectic," said Brecheen. "Even now we have requests scheduled through 1988" Sweet Publishing Company, based in Dallas, approached the men and offered to film the seminar that was scheduled for Nov. 6-7, 1980, at the Abilene Civic Center. On Oct. 7, 1980, the contract was signed. The films, available as eight this day we have never had an argument. We do have dif- , 5 . .,,,. .. ...... H,,,, ,. , ' 'F ferences of opinion, but even those are very slight." Some special memories of the seminar years include receiving the Christian Film Series of the Year Award in 1981, and two seminars in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, and Sum- mit, NJ. "I remember well the one and one-half foot deep snow we drove through from the airport to get to the church building in Coeur D'Alene," said Brecheen. "It was dusk and as we were driving, Paul and I were discussing how we didn't think anyone would be there." But as they pulled into the parking lot, Brecheen said, "we could hear them singing inside, just waiting for us." More than 250 people had come, some had driven more than 400 miles to attend. "We just couldn't believe it. Those Christians from so far away were so excited and hungry for good fellowship. It was a memorable weekend." In Summit, NJ., more than 800 people from all over New England gathered in a high school auditorium to attend the seminar. "They were just excited to be together because the congregations up there are so small," said Brecheen. How much longer will the two professors continue to share their thoughts on marriage with audiences around the world? "As long as Carl and I can keep goingg we want to do the seminar till we're 150," said Faulkner. - Elite Smith FI. GOOGFTIHN - Left: Dr. Carl Brecheen talks to one ol the Lectureship guest speakers.

'L The problems surrounding When a performer climbs onto stage strumming a guitar a sings about love, trains, his kids or his car, most people at AC say, "That's entertainment." When a group of people raise their voices, without strumental accompaniment, singing hymns in four-part h mony, about the love of God and jesus or the Christian strt gle, most people at ACU say, "That's worship." But when a performer or group stands on stage and strum guitar or plays keyboards as accompaniment to songs about t love of God and jesus and the Christian struggle, people ACU do not agree on whether the performance is entertainme or worship. This difference of opinion has caused controversy in t Churches of Christ for the past several years and has been t deciding factor in the administration's request that no conte porary Christian performers be invited for a campus concert. More than 75 percent of ACU students believed performi who use instrumental accompaniment to Christian music wot be appropriate campus entertainment, according to a randc survey conducted by two news classes during the fall. But President William Teague said he had received number of complaints from students who disagree with tl view. In fact, more students had contacted him about this su ject than any other, the president said. "The chief objection most of them have against it is tl some of the performers have said that their performance is l them an act of worship," Teague explained. For many studen it would go against their conscience to buy a ticket for worsh he said. "Then the next idea," he continued, "is that songs which z normally used in worship or could be used in worship are bei sung with instruments, and that, too, causes a conscien problem." Because of this division, the administration asked U Students' Association and other groups not to bring conte: porary Christian performers to campus for a concert. Rob Sellers, SA president, said the SA decided to honor tl request even though he personally was "all for" contemporz Christian concerts. "The administration believes the students 2 divided on the issue because of a few letters," Sellers said. don't think it's that divided an issue. I think most of the students would enjoy something along that line. I don't thi: there would be any problem if people would understand that is not a worship service." But he admitted, "That is where the subject is so controvi sial. Where do you draw the line between praise and worship Ji or wor h1 :ontemporary Christian music Lance Friis, junior from Concord, Calif, said he has ioubts about contemporary Christian music. "I feel kinda' aveird about listening to religious music as entertainment . . . They say it's not a worship service," he continued, "but at ihe same time, they talk about praising God, and that is worship." Norman Archibald, dean of students, said some of the Christian musicians believe they are bringing a worship ex- :erience to their audience through their performances. 'Some of the performers say, 'Worship with me.' That's wrong," he said. Contemporary Christian music often presents a 'dangerous' combination of worship and entertainment, said Wes Thornton, senior from Cedar Hill. "I dont think you should combine the two," he said. Some said concerts by Christian performers would be bet- :er entertainment for ACU students than concerts by rock or pop musicians. In the survey, conducted by members of the Reporting and Broadcast News classes, 71.5 percent of the students questioned said they would be as interested in hear- ing a well-known Christian performer on campus as in hear- ing a well-known pop singer. Winnie Gibbs, associate dean of students, said, "I'd rather have Christian musicians here than some of the ones we've had in the past. I think their lifestyles, their standards and the kinds of things they sing about are far more in line with our standards." The SA sponsored two major concerts during the year, one by Kenny Loggins in the fall, and one by Fire Fall in the spring, and lost money on both. However, when the survey was taken, 84.5 percent of respondents said the Loggins con- cert was appropriate entertainment for the ACU campus, and 96.9 percent said the SA should continue its efforts to bring mayor entertainers to campus. But the SA needs to be sensitive about which performers it brings to campus, said Brian Sandine, senior from Cor- vallis, Ore. "We don't need anybody like Ozzy Osbourne." Archibald agreed with this point of view, "My personal feeling is that any entertainer who comes across as express- ing views that are opposed to what we're doing here at ACU, we don't need." Though a consensus on the merits of contemporary Chris- tian music probably never will be reached at ACU, most students probably could agree with Friis, who said, "I've heard good and bad arguments for both sides of the issue." - Tammy Fielder Absurd odd and fun re, 1' swag .,, GQ ' iw e K M 59 4.

That battle was nothing com- pared to the April 9, skirmishes that filled the mall area be- tween the GATA Fountain and McKinzie dorm. In the second annual Almost Anything Goes contest, Texans from ACU, McMurry College and Hardin-Simmons University teamed up against the Non-Texans from the three schools. The Non-Texans, defending their title from last year, jumped out to a 2-0 lead. The Texans stole the lead, though, by coming from behind in the last leg of the chariot race and winning the obstacle course, making the final score 4-3. Non-Texans coach jay Friddell, junior from Hermitage, Tenn., said, "We beat them by about 100 points last year, They'll have to win for the next 10 years to catch up. Besides, we didn't want to embarrass them two years straight on their home court." The pride of Texans, a people known for their humility, is their readiness to prove their superiority - and Non-Texans are always ready to step on it. - Charler L. Pullen in 'J .

At the same time. someone flicked on the lights in Rober- son Chapel and started to push chairs into one part of the room. Another person wandered in, and the two began to talk. Then another came in and another until the room was full of laughing, hugging, chatting people who eventually took their places on the floor and started to sing. It was 6121 p.m., time for Mission Outreach to begin. After the singing the program might have included a film or slide show about missions, a talk by a missionary returned or on leave from his field. reports from student campaigns, prayer groups, or a period for writing to missionaries. The activities were diverse but were unified in their purpose: "arousing mission awareness," said Gaston Tarbet, Mission Outreach adviser. "From the activities we hope that people will be chal- -if 5' W ,L N.. af . lyg .j 1,11 ---- .. L S c 'E 3 J. R. Goodman lenged for some kind of specific involvement," Tarbet said, listing campaigns, the Missionary Apprentice Resource Korps and career mission work as types of involvement. A statement drawn up by Mission Outreach members a few years ago read, "Mission Outreach exists to create an awareness of Gods desire for His world that pervades cam- pus life and to provide a source of challenging opportunities, information and channels to fulfill that desire in an at- mosphere of spiritual fellowship, edification, affirmation and maturation." The students who attended the weekly meetings said that Mission Outreach fulfilled its goals. Keith Gafner, a graduate student from Bitton, Mich., said, "I love it because of the fellowship and because the people there have an at- titude of reaching out to other people through evangelism and missions." After attending Mission Outreach one time when the pro- gram was devoted to prayer, Susan Lawrence, a freshman from Houston, said, "It made me feel really good. To me it was more than just a devotional, it was a lot more personal . . . I'm just mad I didn't find out about it before." Shaun McDonnell, a senior from Beamsville, Ontario, Canada, and his wife,joyce, had attended Mission Outreach for three yearsjoyce said Mission Outreach changes people who have lived in the Bible Belt all their lives. "People who go can't help but have their eyes opened, and then perhaps their hearts are touched to try to move where the church is smallfjoyce said. Mission Outreach sponsored retreats and organized an In- ternational Taster's Banquet each semester. Other Mission Outreach activities included sponsoring trips to the World Mission Workshop each fall, sending students to national and international missions conferences, writing to MARK students and assisting with Spring Break Campaigns. This year some Mission Outreach members helped open the ACU campaign to Lubbock Christian College students, Those members hoped to help LCC students start their own cam- paigns, said Bruce Woodall, sophomore from Sulphur Springs and Mission Outreach leader in the spring. He said his goal for Mission Outreach was to make it an activity everyone on campus could identify with. He called Mission Outreach a time for fellowship, inspiration, challenge and building of purpose. And, to Mission Outreach members, the time for increasing missions awareness was Friday at 6:21 p.m. - Rafl1elO'Rear iffsyy iii. ,Y 73 , .... 1511:-nrlm:-4 oben-genie zziqaggag osainfmam 300 0- -oggg-1333 0: - : 359232201 "-owlgolpb Xm5"'-.3m'gL 'Doon' '5 9 3511259.23 '2.'139322s' Ff'5':-.Weis 3 'Q og-,O -0 x Z gl- rr 5 2 an ix, . .X f 1 N.

With each one some type of relationship was formed, whether it was merely social or deeply personal. The one thing people had always recalled about ACU was the relationships they had. "Relationships are the most important things in life," said senior Rob Sellers. "Whether it's your relationship with God, with your family, with your spouse or with your peers." Those friendships made with peers were a great deal of what ACU was all about. To be able to sit in the hall of a dormitory or on a bench outside the Campus Center and talk about the problems and joys that were playing a ma- jor role in your life was something you couldn't learn in a classroom. That had to be experienced. Memories of such special relationships had stayed with graduates throughout their lives. junior Susan Welch said, "College is a time for building important relationships and continuing those relationships throughout life." Some students may not have found those special relationships when they first arrived at ACU. As sophomore Carmen Scarbrough said, . . l didn't find my best friend until this year." Carmen said people should be cautious in picking their best friends. "You must be careful when you choose that best friend. They should be someone who will back you up . . . someone who has the same standards as you." Relationships were a reason for junior Sally Cole to go to college. "Mak- ing new relationships is one of the main reasons why someone should decide to go to college," said Sally. "It gives them the chance to get to know themselves as well as others." Learning through those relationships was a part of the education that students got while attending ACU. Deciding to come to ACU was a "good opportunity," said junior Cathy Brammer, . . cause you're forced into a situation where you have to meet people. But the friends you make will be lifetime friends." "Lifetime friends" kept springing up in conversations. A certain amount of security was felt in knowing people would always be around for you to get together to laugh and cry with, no matter how old you got. No doubt in years after students left school, their first thoughts of ACU wouldn't be of a required class, but of relationships they would held special in their hearts. n a society where the divorce rate had sky-rocketed in the last decade. many students questioned the need of getting married. For many it was a goal to be married before or right after college, and at ACU, the pressure of finding that one and only while at a Christian institu- tion was very prevalent. Students were questioned by friends, relatives and even teachers, "Are you going to find someone before you leave college?" Many students fought the pressure, others may not have actually gotten married because of the pressure, but they did get married. Senior Lisa Yearwood believed that "marriage at ACU is pushed too much. The teachers stress marriage and getting married in their classes, and students are always saying that if they don't find someone to marry at ACU, they will never get married." Students discussed a lot of topics throughout the year and each one changed or reinforced their perspectives 'he following five subjects are ones we thought every student could identify with and had encountered at least couple of times during the year. Obviously we couldn't express everyone's viewpoint, but we hope the ones rat are mentioned help each student recall his own attitude and viewpoint about each topic. Smfm by cbaflff L. Pullm If that was true, then many students could have been rushing into a rela- nship they were not ready for. Rushing into a marriage was no help to ybody - those involved or society. "I felt like a happy marriage and family is the basis of a good society," said mior janalee Smith, "and not enough attention has been paid to the institu- on of marriage by society." Preachers and professors have said that the Christian family must be the ornerstone of a great society. But until people, ACU people in particular, 'arted changing society's perspectives about the institution of marriage, the uciety would be in trouble. dministrators. That title brought a grimace to the faces of many students. Some students seemed to be against every action or policy any administrator made. Others agreed and disagreed with ad- iinistrators, while some students thought administrators were doing their obs and students should abide no matter what. When a question over shorts and miniskirts arose in the fall, a special com- xittee was appointed to make a ruling on the clothing. The decision of the ommittee was not totally accepted, and two students expressed their views 1 a letter to the editor of the Optimist on Oct. 5, 1982. Sophomore Richard Oller and junior Monte Wells said they didn't think we committee'reflected "a true sampling of those affected by the issue." In the next issue of the Optimist, however, freshman Dana Small said she was worried by all the rebellion over the issue. The rules, shouldn't be anged "for style or fashion's sake. . . . If you feel you can't abide by the andards of this school . . . conform or leave." Students didn't just question rules on dress codes. Some students ques- oned Dean Garvin Beauchamp's handling of the man preaching outside the Iampus Center. Cecil I-Ienninger of Austin was preaching to students during ne lunch hour, and Beauchamp asked him to leave. When Henninger fused, Beauchamp asked him to talk in his office, according to an article in fre Oct. 19 issue of the Optimirt. In the same issue, sophomore Mark Collins, senior David Collins and unior Brant Hope disagreed with Beauchamp's actions. "I-low can anyone 'reaching simple New Testament Christianity be asked to leave the ACU ampus," asked the students. The students questioned the priorities of the ad- ninistration asking, . . can it be that the administration actually views its frocedures as taking precedence over the Word?" Beauchamp said in the Op- imitt article he thought Henninger was disrupting students. By the end of the semester enough had been said about dress codes, iolicies and other controversies, that Mitch Lindsey, a graduate of 1982, sked students, in a Nov. 30 letter to the editor, who was in charge of their lves. .. All I hear nowdays is 'my rights,' 'the administration shouldn't neddle in my affairs' and such like," he said. The differences between the students and administrators weren't as broad s they may have appeared. Few students complained about every rule ad- ninistrators made, and most students were actually indifferent to ad- ministrators' actions until rules contradicted something they wanted to do. Senior jeff Conner summed up many attitudes when he said that the ad- ininistration had the best interests of the student body in mind but, "too iften we can't see the forest for all the trees. When our deans expend time olving problems like earrings . . . instead of working on major problems like .ttitude and surrender to Christ's Lordship, we have missed the mark." . . can it be the administration actually views its procedures as taking precedence over the Word?'

Student answers ranged from "I don't know" to a simple "to graduate." Life goals for students usually differed according to the student classifications. Freshmen weren't really looking to graduate, but knew somi day they would have to get out and decide what color to paint their Learj Sophomores were usually trying to decide their majors and family life wasj even a considerationjuniors had decided their majors and were beginning feel the need to graduate but weren't quite ready to go. Seniors, however, hj one immediate goal in mind: graduation. Some seniors graduated, got ma tied and found a job, while others played it solo and got a job. Exactly what goals students had set to achieve differed for everybody, bi most agreed that college at ACU had an important role in the goals student set before themselves. "I think the four years of college are important because it's a good time grow and plan for your life," said junior Kari Graves. "When you come ACU you find such a wide spectrum of things to get involved in. They he you find a place for yourself and what your talents are. When you leave, yc have a strong background of your Christian values being strengthened." As students progressed toward graduation, their life goals may hav changed. Senior Glenn Addison made it clear, though, that as studeni changed and set their goals, each should've done so with the realization why they had been placed here on earth. "Life goals should center around t . realization that whatever you strive to do in your life you should never los sight of whose you are and what you are here on earth for." tudents came to ACU to get an education in a Christian atmosphen When they left home, it meant being on their own and making the own choices. One of their most important choices was how they woul exercise their spiritual lives. Students wanted to find their niche at ACU, but they might have gottel caught up in school and forgotten about their church lives so that they on attended services. After all, didn't that three-hour class in Romans make for part of a student's church life? Finding a role in the church as a colle student seemed more difficult than doing so as a high school student. "It's so easy to get here and just be a part of the crowd instead of teachin a class or visiting the sick," said sophomore Leigh Ann Sims. "lt's so muc easier to do those things back home." Finding time to take an active role in the church ministry was hard fg many students. ln school students knew at the end of the semester th would receive a report of their accomplishments, however great or small. A' the time, working on a project in biology seemed much more productiv than working with a group of fourth graders. "Students don't have as muc time here at college," Leigh Ann continued. But junior Kim Vaught disagreed about a college student's time. "lt's a important role because college students have the time to do the things thj really need to be done, like teaching classes. They need to develop tho good habits now." The role of a college student in the church was important to man churches in the area. So much so, that those churches appointed full-tim college ministers to help students with their church lives. Some students too. advantage of their time here and developed within the churchg others did noi Whatever they did, though, each student had to determine for himself - after all, he was the one who would have to answer to the Lord. , here did it go? The question of where ACU got its money and what it id with that money no doubt had gone through the mind fevery ACU student at least once during the year. Some :udents said ACU had more money than it knew what to do fith and some thought the school managed well on what it ad. Last year ACU took in revenues of 524,980,650 and had xpenditures and transfers for that year of S24.1Z4,850. The urplus of 5855.780 went into an endowment fund controlled ly the Board of Trustees, said L. D. Hilton. vice president or finance.Hilton, as the caretaker of the ACL' budget. had o make sure the spending stayed within the budgets limits. F SSSXQQ yeast? Many students thought ACU's tuition, 594 per hour, was oo high. but Hilton said that even at that level, tuition ac- 'ounted for barely 45 percent ofthe schools income. The second largest single source of income came from lormitory fees, vending machines, video games, recreational reas, the Bookstore, the food service and the Post Office, aid Neil Fry, assistant to the vice president for finance. fhose areas were classified as the Sales and Services of Aux- liary Enterprises, and the total income from that area was 36,564,928 less than one-third of the schools total income. Private gifts and grants brought in S1,626.567. said Hilton. Dther sources from educational activities brought S950,616, vhile government grants provided S914,487, said Fry. The iederal government provided the smallest source of income vith 3252.450 in aid, less than 1 percent ofthe total income. So where did all that money go!

The Christian schools, the library and Allen Farm spent 51,905,577 during the year and were categorized as academic support. To keep water running in the buildings and lights on so students could pull those all-nighters, the school spent 31,811,661 for operations and plant maintenance. This in- cluded taking care of buildings and grounds, Hilton said. Student services, which included Fish Camp, salaries for associate deans and miscellaneous, spent 3740,628, said Fry. Research done by ACU professors totaled 3519241 of ex- penses, said Floyd W. Dunn, dean of research. Each pro- fessor who received funds had to apply to the Research 3 Council for those funds. The money they received paid for new equipment, travel, payment of student workers and supplies. Services conducted for the public, like Lectureship, ac- counted for about .2 percent of total expenses. For a few consecutive years the Board of Trustees had voted for a tuition hike. In 1981, the 75th Anniversary of the school, tuition was 375 per hour. But for the 1985-84 school year the Board decided to maintain the price per hour at 394. This move no doubt showed the students and supporters of the school that the administration was willing to help take some of the load off of the students to make Christian education a little more affordable. The money came from many different places, but no mat- ter what route it was funneled through, its ultimate destina- tion was the same -Y providing education. - Terri Moore and Clmrlei L. Pullen where Did it Go? f125 e standard ACU's stated purpose is "to educate its students for Chris- tian service throughout the world." In accomplishing that purpose, "The Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, students, alumni, and friends of the university are committed to maintaining a community of work and learning distinguished by Christian character." This character was defined as "striving to be Christ-governed individuals." From ACU's purpose flow its Christian standards. Presi- dent William Teague said, "I know of nothing that would have any greater importance than Christian standards. That's our whole reason for existence." Students and faculty agreed with his assessment. The school tries to maintain Christian standards, Teague said, through faculty and staff members who "promote, ad- vocate and live" those standards. "We also try to have academic programs that would give us opportunities to encourage the development of Christian values," he said. Other examples of the university striving to emphasize these values included "mandatory Chapel atten- dance, Bible study, and a whole variety of courses on ethics, marriage and the family," he said. Dt. Bill Humble, Bible department chairman, said the maintenance of Christian standards came through "teaching in all classes about Christian character and conduct"g through emphasis of school activities that encouraged Chris- tian conduct, such as Chapel, devotionals and Spring Break Campaignsg and through the school rules. Many students said they believed Christian standards were maintained through the rules. But Larry, Nelson, senior from South Daytona Beach, Fla., and Students' Association spiritual life director, had a different point of view. "I think was his God-given mission in life. "A Christian's morality only really makes sense in a con- text of battle. If a Christian understands that he's engaged in God's work and that he's on a mission, then that's when morality makes sense." The Christian draws on his moral character as his weapon to accomplish God's mission, he said. "But you take away that mission, and it's like putting the soldier back in the barracks where there's no threat, nothing that makes these standards dear to him," Nelson said. Humble said he thought ACU was doing "rather well" in adhering to Christian standards. "I certainly have to believe there is some deterioration, but I think it is typical of the church as a whole," he said. Televi- sion, movies and other elements have had a weakening in- fluence on society that has influenced the church and therefore ACU and its students, he said. "We struggle against it but not with complete success," Humble said. He saw "the kind of people we have here" - faculty members and students who are committed to Christian ideals - as strengths to ACU's Christian standards. Teague said ACU'S primary strength in the area of Chris- tian standards was starring with the Bible as its basic premise. Another strength was the "mature faculty" who ap- plied the rules fairly, making distinctions between "the hardened offender and someone who is overcome for the moment," he said. The president said he wished that he could see a closer to the "Christian family model," with students concern for those who exhibit non-Christian the rules are important because with a complete set of freshman major from was do- set before "You can come here and rest from the world and not do anything," she said. "If you were in New York City, you'd be working hard and pushing Christianity because the laborers are few, but down here there are so many that you can slough off." Gina King, a senior who transferred from West Texas State University after one semester, found ACU far different from WTSU, where "they don't think anything about going out on any night of the week and getting plastered" and where premarital sex was "pretty common." "It was strange to come from there where nobody even said the world God and much less uttered a prayer and then coming here," she said. Gina said ACU students and administrators made their decisions from a Christian viewpoint, "Then because you are around so many good people, you tend to make more deci- sions that are Christian. There's a much greater temptation to do things that aren't Christian at a state school," she said. Laura Lee Meinhardi, senior home economics education major, transferred to ACU after two years at Harding University. She said, "ACU is a little bit more part of the world than Harding was because of its location, the size of the school and the type of people that come here." She said Harding was in a small-town, sheltered at- mosphere and ACU was in a city with more - and closer - opportunities for non-Christian conduct. called the 'ACU Club,' " she said. "If something like that happened, some people would be out of school. You just don't hear about those things at Lipscomb." Irma Christian had watched ACU and its standards for 60 years. She graduated from ACU in 1928, taught at ACU and in Abilene Christian schools for 55 years, and attended Chapel daily during the 1982-83 year. Her students included jack Pope, now chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, and the late Batsell Barrett Baxter, who was one of Lipscomb's presidents. "The success of the great people who have gone here is due mostly to the Christian principles," she said. Mrs. Christian said she had seen some loosening of stan- dards at ACU in the last several years, but said she thought she saw a trend for the better among students, with fewer students fighting the school's standards. Both Mrs. Christian and Nelson said they thought the ad- ministration was overly concerned with money. Nelson said, "I just don't think there's much of a sense of mission in our administration. I think our administration is more conscious of the university's prestige than of the mission of God." He also said he thought the administration was not only concerned that ACU survive in difficult economic times, but that it grow in numbers to enhance its prestige. "I don't see them explaining the growth that ACU is going to do in terms of God being glorified or that we can equip more A school's rules influence the type to go to that school, she said, and attend ACU would not enirolliin stricter rules.

This dai- ly event was spurred by the thought of having something important - like a check from dad - stored in that metal box you generally shared with a spider and a boxmate. You probably had a special name for your spider, which was uni- que from all the names other students gave their spiders. He was your friend when nothing else was in your box to greet you. You politely pushed your way through hun- dreds of bodies to get to that little hole in the wall that the outside world considered your home. As you- got closer, you thought you saw an envelope, but that last bump knocked you off line with your box so you couldn't be sure. You made your way around the football player talking to three different girls, but that same couple was standing right in front of your box having their daily argument. As you got closer they moved away and then you saw it, an envelope was inside. You rushed to the box but suddenly that 5'2" blue-eyed wonder whose box was right above yours, stepped in front of you to open her mail box. As she reached up she started talking to a friend and stood there opening her eight letters, even though you loudly cleared your throat twice. Finally she moved and now it was your turn. You gazed through the window for a moment to capture that cherished occasion. The spider didn't know what to think of this gala event, while you pondered, "Should I throw a party, or just have an ice cream to celebrate." You hurried to open the box, dialing th numbers quickly, anxiously, and you got ther wrong the first two times. You stopped, took a breath and then dialer again. This time it worked, and you slowl opened the door with anticipation. You paused for a second wondering what i might be. An invitation to something or a lette from mom or sister or . . . The spider looked or worriedly, hoping it wouldn't be an evictioi notice for him. You took hold of the thick envelope ani slowly pulled it out into the light. You turned i over to see who it was "FOR M5 BOXMATEU' You pushed it back in, slammed the doo and tromped off to class leaving the spide wondering if it was something he said. - Charles L.

It was a joy for those who thought they had other things to do and wanted to leave well enough alone. Other students who had been assigned only one seat were disappointed to find their seats in the nose-bleed section. Some newly married students reserved a seat for their beloved, but their spouse ended up on the other side of the Coliseum. A very tryin experience indeed. And even if you had only one Chapel seat and even if you went to Chapel every day, got there 10 minutes early and listened attentively, you always got a Chapel notice. What happened? Dean Winnie Gibbs said. that this was the first year for a computer to be used to help assign Chapel seating . . . oh, that explains it. Somehow more than 300 students had numerous seats, no seat or were separated from friends or family. Dean Gibbs explained that the problem arose when students saved seats for friends and then forget to tell the friends. Since each stu- dent could save one seat, different people at dif- ferent times saved a seat for the same person not knowing of the other saved seats. Chapel seating always had been a little con- fusing, but we should have known we would be in trouble when the computer age caught up with the seating process. But then why all the fuss anyway. By mid- semester many students skipped Chapel as often as they went, and by the end of the semester there seemed to be just enough people there to fill a large class room. Such irony - what was it about Chapel seats that made everyone want one bad enough to end up not going anyway. - Kristy Pendergrnrr and Charles L. Pullen Those washda y blues... yellows... reds Laundry. just the mention of the word caused many students to cringe. But, as we all found out, laundry was inevitable. The mound of clothes always seemed to reach the rim on the prettiest day of the week. So then you had to spend the best' part of the day waiting for your IZODS to finish their bub- ble baths. Freshmen soon realized why mom never included laundry on the list of "the joys of being on your own." After doing your laundry a couple of times, you began to wonder why the home economics department never offered Laundry 1101. just trying to figure out which dial did what on the washer took a good deal of experience. Saturday was the day to avoid doing laundry. The laundromat looked more like a national convention of cattle herders than a place to wash clothes. In that unavoidable chaos, you were bound to run into someone you wanted to impress, but it was the wrong place. After waiting forever you finally saw an opening and moved for that one empty washer at the same time that cute girl from English class did. She didn't remember you, but you let her use it anyway. Men on campus who were inexperienced in the art of laundry, carried mom's instruction guide next to their hearts. Some girls were sym- pathetic and helped a bewildered beau. But most girls decided it was everyone for himself, and if some guy didn't know better than to mix blue jeans and whites, then he could wear baby blue shorts for a while. Some students journeyed to the laundromat weekly if they were inclined to keep things neat. Bi-monthly was okay for others. Still others went every third week, but that was stretching it. One student said, "When I get down to a cer- tain pair of underwear I know the time has come for laundry." Despite permanent wrinkles, lost underwear and clothes that shrunk to Rover's size, the laundromat was a place for college memories. Most you may wish you could forget, but you know you never will. - Tammy Dablof Y'allf 131 0. .J U 'ua ve f Mg? 4 rl tixw s at it E .

Bottom: Kinsmen member Tim Beckett escorts his bagged sibling to his next destination. Gloom, despair and agony on yor They say the best things in life are worth working for. In many instances this is true. But probably a lot of people on campus would disagree with that. If it were a certain Saturday morning early in the semester, many weary social club pledges might be saying, "No way, club could never be worth what I just went through last night." And of course they're referring to the in- famous Bid Night. just the thought of that night of horrors is enough to send chills down any knowledgeable sophomore's spine. What goes on between club members and unsuspecting pledges during that night is one of the best kept secrets on campus. But rumors on this subject are prevalent, and every sophomore has his own idea of what to expect when he pledges a social club. "I was really scared about Bid Night because everyone talked about how bad it was," said Phyllis Baker, sophomore from Nashville, Tenn. "I was prepared for the worst." Melody Townsel, sophomore from De Soto, who pledged Kojies during the spring semester, shared Phyllis' fears. "You hear so many terrible things, and you just never know whether or not to believe them." Robert Pitman, sophomore from Worth, said that before Bid Night he was "real- ly intimidated because of how the old members built it up. There was such a mystique about it." Sophomore Allen Walker said he felt 132 1 Y'all "a lot of apprehension" before that night. "I guess the unknown frightens everyone." But when the evening got underway, at- titudes changed. Some started to enjoy themselves, while others began to wonder what on earth they were doing in such a predicament. "You went through a lot, and it was pretty embarrassing," said Phyllis. "But it was fun because everyone else was going through the same silly things you were. And you just have to laugh because theres no other time in your life that you can look the way you did and a as stupid as you did and get away with it." What about the next morning? After all thi were these weary pledges willing to contini their torture for the rest of the pledge period? "The next eight weeks looked awfully lor when I came in that morning," said Melody. Still others didnt even think about the cot ing struggles. "My only wish the mornir after," said Allen, "was just to crash for the ne eight weeks." - Elise Smith 08 x.r-me .A I Bumplty - bump Never let it be said that West Texas didnt have mountains. Granted they weren't suitable for snowskiing and elk didn't graze among tall pines, but those mountains had seen many a student come and go and had been carved and etched with time. These great monuments of rock were the speed bumps that periodically spread their heights on Avenue F, the internal road on campus. Many students have passed the Campus Center waving to a friend only to find themselves spread-eagle on their car ceiling from that unmistakable speed-bump jolt. Those bumps have been responsible for numerous automotive casualties. including bent oil pans, crushed tailpipes and the death of countless shock absorbers. Those bumps were the eternal enemies of Corvette owners and others who liked riding low. Despair was written on every driver's face as a quick prayer was said just before hitting the bumps.

Ringing in your ear Rebellious or fashionable? The question of whether men on campus should be able to wear earrings became an issue during the fall semester. The controversy started when some students objected to men on campus who were wearing earrings. A practice that had labeled men as ab- normal was becoming a part of fashion. Complaints about the earrings made it to the administration, which asked the men not to wear earrings. The administrative decision focused on maintaining ACU's "standard of dress and personal grooming, which would or- dinarily be maintained by those in other serious pursuits." "I don't know that there's anything sinful about it, it just seems to be a rebellion against the norm," explained sophomore Dean Boyd. Freshman Sutan Ballard said, "If a guy wants to wear earrings, it is his choice and we should not make it for him." The issue finally died out of the public view, and nobody worried too much about who was wearing earrings. But if trends continue maybe the question of rebellion or fashion never will be answered. - Dena Edwardt Bring your books, grab a booth When ACU students talked about greasy burgers, scowling waitresses and all-night study sessions with an old jukebox full of tear-your- heart-out country music, they were talking about the truck stop Papa Bear. It usually took about one semester for the new ACU student to discover Papa Bear, but then it was hard to keep him away. It was a rare night when at least a few students didn't stay till dawn studying at a booth or table in Papa Bear. Nothing tasted better than an omelette or a famous Papa Bear burger combined with some "axle-grease coffee" - especially when the long hours were stretching into an all-nighter. Papa Bear was a place where, in one night, a student might meet several oil-rig workers, a few truck drivers and a couple traveling to California, and still learn enough to pass an 8 a.m. English exam. Many students came to view Papa Bear as a home-away-from-home, In fact, several of the waitresses and cashiers became a mother-awayu from-mother: filling the coffee cup when it was empty, telling the boys how to handle their girl problems, telling the girls how to handle their boy problems. and offering encouragement to a weary student during finals week. Papa Bear was not a unique institution. It was like just about any other Z4-hour truck stop- restaurant in the South. But for the Yankee, a meal at Papa Bear could have been a first-time event. If you missed Papa Bear this year, donit despair, because three things are certain at ACU: Lectureship, Sing Song and at least one all-nighter at Papa Bear. -jay Friddell van f iss major from Pasadena and a Get-a-job-fluenza sufferer.

The Students' Association was no exception as it negotiated with the administration for the option of investing the large amounts of money in its treasury. In the end, the SA was granted its proposal and invested several thousand dollars that earned even more money. 134 f Yau ing force behind the SA's proposal that the SA and other campus organizations be allowed to invest funds in accounts off campus. Under the system that had been used the organizations were required to deposit their money through the ACU business office. The organizations did not earn interest on the accounts, but the organizations were not chraged for check- writing and record-keeping services. Addison said he suggested the proposal because he believed the students, not the university, should be receiving the interest from the money in its treasury. "Since enrollment has off," Addison said, "our revenues have off, but the costs have kept rising." began after the SA passed a to allow organizational invested.

After several meetings between Addison at the administrators an agreement was reached mid-September that allowed organizations wi accounts of at least 35,000 to invest the fum off campus. The organizations were required ' invest the money through Tim Yarbtoug ACU's investments analyst.

Kasten said, "I had some trouble relating to some of my friends back home. Either they hadn't gone to college or they were attending a state university while I was attending a Christian school." For many students those first experiences were humorous. They discovered freedom wasn't all it was cracked up to be. But most sur- vived and moved into the "real world" with ease. "Youth is the time to look for opportunity," said Mark Rokey, senior from Sabeth, Kan. And most ACU students did just that. -- Tammy Dahlof ,. . .. R. Goodman Sorting out the future The first peek at that 8-by-10 sheet known as a degree plan and filled with numbers, abbrevia- tions and the huge list of courses "To Do" can send an inexperienced student rushing to the vending machine for some chocolate to steady his nerves. A closer examination can result in severe feelings of inadequacy. Degree plans are designed to help a student plan his schedule for four years by listing re- quirements for his major plus necessary general education courses. Ken Rasco, registrar, sends an updated degree plan to all students who have a major and have at least sophomore classifica- tion. The plan lists which courses have been completed, which ones still need to be taken and - for the lucky student - how many hours of electives remain. A student can learn much from his degree plan - if he can read it. However, only a phar- macist or someone with a hieroglyphics degree could decipher most degree plans. One woman received a degree plan instruc- ting her to take English 1350 Ph. Lit. After a frantic search in the catalog for this non- existent class and much speculation about what the "Ph. Lit." might stand for, she called the registrar's office to see what the cryptic message meant. After some investigation, Rasco told her that the requirement was a misunderstanding. He had written +3 Soph. Lit. on her plan to show she needed to take three more hours of sophomore literature. But the typist translated Rasco's message as 1350 Ph. Lit. This problem is understandable when one considers the amount of numbers on the average degree plan: several hundred classes are listed, each identified by four numbers. And all the important information is written in numbers - the number of completed elementary hours, the number of completed advanced hours, the number of elementary hours to do, the number of advanced hours to do - even the date is given numerically. Besides those numbers, Rasco always adds a note at the bottom of the sheet which reads something like, "Hours Yet to Do: 128-104 equals 24 fof which, fbutj 11 are required Q3 elem., 8 adv.l, + 13 electives." Then the next line continues, "24-12 in fall equals 12 to do in spring. Comm. 3350 + Z hrs. adv. elect. + 7 hrs. other elect." Students need a degree in math just to get a degree. But the handwritten degree plan is a vanishing breed. Already Rasco is typing many of them, and he said that soon the on-line com- puters should give advisers from each depart- ment access to a students file. Thus the adviser will be able to tell the student what he needs to take without written degree plans. What a reliefl Everybody knows how much simpler processes become on a computerized system. -- Tammy Fielder Yau 1 iss - N , . ' Don Clary tries to get students to sign up for a dating service the computer club sponsored during Sadie Hawkins week. A SPCCIZIIOI' S SPOITI. The subject of dating was probably more talked about at colleges and universities around the country than English, history or geophysics. At ACU the discussions about dating seemed most often to center on the lack of it. In fact, some even labeled dating as a spectator's sport. A lot of people didn't date very often, and others went out many nights every week. Still others dated but complained about not dating enough. The ideas on dating ranged from the thought that people only dated to get married to the idea that dating was just something to do to break the monotony of studying. The belief that there wasn't enough dating at ACU was nothing new to the student body. Not dating had been a problem for years. How many students remember someone announcing in Chapel, "Okay guys, you're going a great job of asking these girls out. Keep it up.' Instead of congratulations, students heard 136 1 Y'all P.E. instructor Liz Campbell get up once a semester and try to strum up some excitement for the girls to ask out the guys during Sadie Hawkins week. Hearing her talk about all the great things to do with the guys during the week made some girls wan! to do the asking. Meanwhile, the men were back at their dorm rooms with a Prickb Pear in hand in case they needed to look up a girl's picture to see if they wanted to go out with her. With the special hay ride and banana split dates during Sadie Hawkins, this was probably the most popular week of school. Some people even believed that more dates occured during Sadie week than any other week during the year. Without special events many found that nightlife in Abilene was not the most exciting thing around. But for those who dared to weather the monotony, creativity became the key. Creativity ranged from having a luau on an apartment balcony Ccomplete with sandj to go- ing shopping at Super Duper before you went home and cooked hot dogs for twc The mental psyche about dating was another reason many students only observed the dating process. Many girls would have been happy with just a Coke date or with watching TV and making popcorn. But some men thought they needed to go out for dinner and then to a movie for it to be a real date. And if they didn't, they may have felt a little guilty. Also, some girls didn't seem to understand that many guys could seldom afford the dinner and movie date. For many students the problem of not dating was severe. So severe that one girl who was ask- ed to commment on dating simply said, "I don't know about dating life." When students finally did get a date with someone they might be interested in, the ques- tions from friends never stopped. "What was he like? Do you think she likes you? What's your R.

But just as iany guys at ACU were looking for a hand to ut that diamond on and wouldn't admit it. The male ego simply wouldn't allow that. Does all this sound like dating was bad at .CU? Actually, complicated was a better escrip-tion. Some students found their way trough the mazes of dating and had a great me. They made some new friends and learned lot about others' perspectives and their own. lthers never got into the game of dating.The utlook was different for everybody, and dating robably wasn't as much d spectators sport as some students made it sound. But whatever the perspective, the word dating caused almost everyone to join into the discussion with an opi- nion. - Clmrler L. Pullen The Dating Dictionary Dating was a way to meet new people and have fun, and it eventually got some students married. It was complicated at times to tell where you were in the dating cycle, so below is a list of the different stages you may have gone through while dating. Playing the field: First you looked at all the choices available, but didn't stand still long enough to get caught by one of the choices. Interested: Now you began to focus on one or more choices and made a point to be recognized by them. But, being interested did not mean it was a twoaway street. Going out: This was the time when you were on a friendlier level with a person, and that person was higher on your list of possibilities. Seeing: You'd had at least four dates with one person, but by no means were you only going out with that one. Liking: At a point when you considered dating one per- son, but were not willing to give up your freedom yet. Daring: Used to show more possession. You'd given up some freedom by not accepting a date from any other people. Infatuated: Many relationships were ended here because one person was more serious than the other and it was often mistaken for love. Serious: Also called thick or heavy, Discussions became much deeper because you began to consider making perma- nent plans. You should've thought hard, because your heart was a tender thing to let someone step on. Promised: Engaged to be engaged sounded more col- legiate. Many of you didn't know this stage occurred. Usually it was in the back of your mind - few people in college wear promise rings. Engaging in engagement: You knew the question was coming, but you didn't know when, especially if you weren't asking. Love: The moment it hit you was hard to pinpoint. When it did come the world became a field of roses. Engaged: The question came floating out as if on the tongues of angels. Marriage: You did it! The moment that you'd hoped for was history. Suddenly, all the above seemed to be little more than a candy store. - Cbarlei L. Pullen Y'all f 137 Yummy for your tummy Where was "the place" to go after football games or for a study break? During this school year Too Good To Be Yogurt was an obvious first choice. The most common reason was that frozen yogurt "is less fattening than ice cream." That rule only held true as long as you didnt inhale a gallon a week of the delectable dessert or didn't add M8cM's or cookie crunchies to a chocolate and vanilla swirl. The location of Too Good To Be Yogurt on judge Ely Boulevard, only a few blocks from campus, added to the convenience of "just dropping in" for some of your favorite flavor.

Out on the steps A favorite story among professors was of first dates on the Administration Building steps for a Tuesday night devotional, Although having a date to the Ad Building steps was nice, it certainly was not mandatory. Fellowship and spiritual growth were the initial ingredients that made Tues- day night devotionals a special time for many students. About 9:20 p.m., students appeared from all directions, breaking from studies, in- tramural sports, or a television program to fellowship with friends and worship God. joseph Dennis, a junior from Odessa, said he attended because "it's the best way to take time out and relax from the every- day routine. I've met the nearest people there." Sophomore jobie Cabbel from Los Alamos, N.M., commented that "it remind- ed me of Bible times, like being in the midst of Paul and the disciples. I also loved the music because it was so uplifting." "The beauty of Tuesday ngiht devotionals was its spontaneity that made it fresh," said Larry Nelson, senior from South Daytona Beach, Fla., and director of the Spiritual Life Committee. Although the devotional officially ended after "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" had been sung and the last prayer had been said, students stayed a long while to mingle and fellowship with friends. - Tammy Dabfof MGSSHQGS to U16 POlDlI Sing Song participants voted to spend 51,500 on a television monitor that displays announcements about upcoming campus events.

But he could all a foul louder than any other referee in rhool, and his exaggerated signals would have iade a mime jealous. Phillip Dutton attracted attention when he :fereed a basketball game because he threw all f his boundless energy into the task. The pressures of making split-second deci- ons and hearing hisses from fans were not new ar Phillip. 'Tm flamboyant. I do it with style," e said. "The worst thing you can do is make a rishy-washy call. The second worst thing you an do is not make it automatically." Phillip applied that same philosophy to every spect of his life - from waiting tables at Steak nd Ale to writing Optimist stories to being a usband. He returned to ACU last year after tree years away and quickly became a well- nown campus figure. He started writing Optimirt sports stories in ie fall as part of a class, but he was so en- iusiastic about assignments that the sports :litor began giving him more work. By the end f the spring semester, Phillip wrote several :ories per issue and knew practically everybody ven remotely concerned with ACU sports. "l've always loved sports. If they gave egrees in sports, I'd be a Ph.D," Phillip said. But it takes more than a love for sports to lay them, and Phillip's 5-foot-6-inches limited is athletic aspirations. Still, he wanted to be in- olved in sports, and refereeing and reporting 'ere two ways he chose to do that. Phillip said e chose sports journalism so he could bring ie excitement of a sporting event to others the brightest, chalky blue they could find. The color of blue wasrft that badg you pro- bably became accustomed to it. What was bothersome was when it stopped looking blue and started turning brown. Putting live fish in the ol' water hole was cer- tainly better than dead ones, and it was original. But no one took the fish out until they had finally died and bloated. Eventually someone decided to change the color of the water to red, then green, then rust. When a big event was coming up like Sing Song, the ptanksters got real creative and soaped the fountain.

Phillip admitted that he had not channelled his energy wisely when he was a student here from 1975-78. "I wanted to get an education, but I wanted to have fun more than I wanted to get an education." Thus he became known for his crazy antics. One day Phillip and some friends began talking about shaving their heads. Phillip said he would shave his head for 5100, and the guys quickly collected the money. The next day Phillip came to school with a smooth scalp and a new pair of boots. But he regrets that action. "I really wish I'd never done it because of the stupidity of it all. I realize that the reason I did it was because I wanted to be popular, and what I became was infamous. I clon't want to be remembered for that. I want to be remembered for something that was productive for the school." Phillip was placed on academic suspension at the end of the fall semester of his senior year and he returned home to Hurst, where he met his wife, Stephanie. He worked for a steel con- struction company for three years, and while taking classes at Tarrant County junior College decided to return to ACU. The couple agreed that returning to Abilene was one of the best moves they could have made. But Phillip still was concerned about what others thought of him, saying he was afraid people saw him only as a flamboyant character on the field or court and that made them shy away from getting to know him on a deeper level. "I think I have some worthwhile qualities that many people don't see," he said. ...nfs I Scott Mallory and Alan Rlch pioneered a new fountaln sport. numbers of bodies sailing into it, live fish, dead fish, shoe polishings and once even an attempt to jump it on a bicycle.

Thank you, kind joker, for saving us from the fountain gag blues. - Charles L. Pullen Phil? Even if nobody else saw that worth, Stephanie was a true fan. "He's everything any girl would ever want. He makes you happy." Kevin Wishard, an Optimirt sports staffer, probably came closest to capturing the true spirit of Phillip: "You can say what you want to about him, but if I had to swim the ocean, I'd want to do it with Phillip." - Tammy Fielder f' K. 1 It :-:a 1 ft i r i Into the land of Greg Wharton maneuvers his flying ostrich over a buzzard. He could hear those machines calling to him as he sat through the last 15 minutes of his class. The only thing he could concentrate on were ghosts, robots, spaceships and Kongjr. He could see them coming from all sides, but this time he thought he had figured it out. Class ended, and he dashed to his favorite game with quarter in hand. His anxiety rose as he opened the door only to find somebody already playing his game. So he waited and planned. The first guy choked on level 4. Our friend stepped up to take his best shot. He concen- trated for a moment, then slid his quarter in - "gulp" - and his video adversary came to life, taking him on a trip through video land. Steve Cummings concentrates on getting "Donkey Kong Jr." to save Donkey's Father. 140 1 van In the land of video, two types of gamesters existed: the perpetual loser and the addict. The perpetual loser was the person who con. sistently never made it past the second wave of any video game. He never tried to master a game, but his running total of Pac-Man at- tempts equaled Babe Ruth's homerun total. What force drove the perpetual loser to insert another quarter, numb more fingers, and lose the game e- again? Perhaps he enjoyed the thrill of defeat, or maybe he loved to be frustrated! Someone should have talked this person into being a full-time video cheerleader. The other type of gamester, the addict, was usually a one-game fan. He racked up enough free games on one machine to fill an empty afternoon. And after every class he was seen scurrying to the nearest piece of electronic equipment to receive his "fix." One wonders if video should have been declared a major. lt would have solved the pro- blem of deciding a major for many sophomores - and even seniors - who just couldnt seem to find their niche. Think of it, a space-video major with an animated-video minor. Video was a booming business on the Hill with so many avid fans always trying to better their scores. Many students used the games as an outlet to break away from studying, or for something to do on a date. Odds are Ms. Pac Man had more dates any night of the week than any ACU woman. Our friend who was playing the game at the beginning of this story is still playing .. . and probably will still be playing -- and losing -- by the time the next yearbook comes out. - Dena Edward: and Charles L.

Welcome to Willy's Place Once upon a time students could go to the bottom of the Campus Center and make a feast out of vending machine goodies. Everything from yogurt to soggy hamburgers could be pur- chased through those metal food storage cases. But PPM food service, which took over Carter Cafeteria, saw the need for a snack bar to give students more freedom. The idea of a snack bar was not new, but the school never found the funding for the bar. PPM decided to build the snack bar and provided the necessary funding. Aug. 28, 1982, was the opening of ACU's snack bar with its decor of little Italy, 'Texas country, Mexico and a '20s ice cream parlor. "Willys Place," was the name given to the snack bar in honor of mascot Willy Wildcat. The snack bar provided an alternative to Bean food. and meal cards or money could be used to purchase such foods as burritos, nachos, bak- ed potatoes or banana splits. Mark Clark, assistant manager of Willys Place, said that business began slowly but picked up as the year went by. Advantages of the snack bar were its convenience and variety. However, students with meal cards for the Bean were allowed only 32.15 at Willys Place when a meal at the Bean was all you could eat for 33.15. The snack bar closed 10 minutes before Chapel leaving many starved students hungry for a mid-morning doughnut. Even though the service was sometimes slow, Willys Place gave a better choice of food than those quarter- eating vending machines, -W Kristy Pendergmxi. lPensh Study: ine inougmi Dates, pledging, Sing Song, basketball games, exercising, friends, football games, TV, hobbies, letters - they all kept you from study- ing. So, you brought out the midnight oil. No, on second thought, you just brewed lots of cof- fee and brought out the No-Doze. You started out with so much time to spare where did it go? "I watched M"'A"'S"'H,l' said sophomore joanie Samson. Even though you tried to avoid the books, research papers, homework and tests never went away. One great escape idea was to go to the park, catch some rays and study for a while. When you woke up two hours later, however, you were burned to a crisp and had accomplished nothing. Then you faced the dwindling GPA, but not even that could motivate you to really dig into 142 f van those books. So, off to the library you went, and while you were there did you notice the people who always looked to see if anyone was watching them study! What about the freshman women who pretended to be absorbed in the Abilene Reporter-News but were secretly scoping out all the males entering and departing the library? That was studying, too. Then, of course, you knew the student who appeared to be studying but really worked crosswords puzzles in the corner of the ground floor till closing time. For the procrastinators everywhere, cold showers, loud music and strong caffeine could not get the job done. Ann Howard, sophomore from Fort Worth, said, "I just don't sleep." Theres an alternative. -Q K riszy Pemlergmfr 4 4 l 4 l l i Trying to "It's Sunday nightg the Bean is closed.

Some kind of student-appreciation dinner was .lways going on somewhere. Group projects were a blast. Do you know Sometimes you had how much pizza .82 a person could buy with 20 people? 0r you could have given the girl at Burger King a fit when she saw all of you walk in at 10:30 with buy-one-get-one-free Whopper coupons. Of course, Campbells Chicken Noo- dle also was a cheap meal, All these tips were just in case money in dacldyis letters seemed too far apart. But if worse came to worse, you had one unflattering alternative to make ends meet - get a real job! -- Phillip Dutton JD Chu all-hopping they will ga Although Webster may not have been able o define "church-hopping," many ACU tudents probably could: Attending a different tongregation every time the church bells rang. Glynda Hawley, senior from Milwaukee, Xlis., said some students wanted to "rake ad- vantage of all the speakers in town. Many come rom small places where they don't have oppor- unities to experience such variety." Rick Atchley, preacher at Southern Hills Church of Christ, said church-hopping eliminates involvement in the Body which is unhealthy." lt may cause "Spiritual malnourish- ment" because students do not receive the full benefits of Christianity available to them, he said. One of the major problems was that those who did hop didn't get involved as easily. "They feel no loyalty to one congregation," said Winnie Gibbs, associate dean of students. Larry Nelson, senior from South Daytona Beach, Fla., encouraged students to involve themselves in one congregation. Students needed to decide individually what their answers to this question would be. -- Tammy Dablof H.

They got called more names than a pope has, and they could and many times did make themselves the center of attention. But no mat- ter what happened in the games, the intramural referees got no respect. The biggest complaints that intramural par- ticipants had were with the people hired to keep the games under control. But those same peo- ple who were hired to officiate the games also were intramural participants as each intramural team was required to furnish one referee. The job was not one that many of the players on the team wanted to have. Who in his right mind would want to have a 250-pound football player following him around palming a basket- ball like it was a grapefruit after you had called him for traveling? Many things wandered through the officials mind while the game was going on: "I sure wish they hadn't brought their whole club to the game, I might not make it home alive ifl have to make a call they don't like." "I cant wait till that guy yelling at me comes up to bat." "If he tells me my mother chases troop ships one more time . . The refs tried to be impartial, but when one team continually yelled at him objectivity went out the window. The refs did a good job for the most part, but some people complained that the games werent called close enough. Of course if the games were called close, many teams would have had most of its players sitting on the bench with five fouls before the game was over. With pay for a game at minimum wage the participants shouldn't have expected a profes- sional job of refereeing, especially when the play was far from professional standards. So the referees got less respect than Rodney Dangerfield, but you shouldn't worry about them too much. As long as they had the yellow flag in football, the technical foul in basketball and the power to kick players out of the game in softball, they would be okay. - j, Scot: Russell Same auld lang syne Away to the library the students all shuffled, in thrice worn shirts and jeans a bit ruffled. Attendance at Chapel, though still mandatory, is now so sparse ir's not worth inventory. Leftovers at the Bean seem more abundantg mainly because ofa menu redundant.

South American revolt was as common, it seems, as ice cream at family reunions. Governments fell and were raised once again leading only to disillusion. Nicaragua and El Salvador were inflamed, their streets filled with riots and burnings While nations abroad planned war strategy sure to increase foreign earnings. American soil was not immune to the sorrow of disheartening news, There were race riots in Miami, and Southern floods gave us all the blues. We were shocked and frightened of murderous death by poisonous cyanide Some fool had laced into Tylenol, from which seven people died. And then we were all surprised to learn of Leonid Breshnev's death, However the Soviets would prove that Andropov's like the rest. We thought, at first, this might be the end of Russian undiplornacy, However, the man who took control was formerly head of the KGB. Nuclear war was threatened nowg "No Nukes" was the cry of many, While our administration and the Russians desired to spend a pretty penny. MX missiles were the craze for which our leaders seemed to beg, But it was rough to commend nuclear war, it cost a job for Alex Haig. It was again time for us to choose, filling out election ballots, And the Democrats proved once again they've the better propaganda talents.

Movies brought us love and romance and caused our thoughts to roam. As the officer became a gentleman and ET did go home. Hoffman thrilled us with laughter and went to town in drag, But Ben Kingsley took the golden statue, as Ghandi he could brag. Newman's blue eyes filled the screen with a compelling courtroom trauma, And we were delighted to see Magnum on film in "China's" melodrama. Television changed novels into epics using many a great film star, The networks brought romance in the Thornbirds, and drama in Winds of War.

The victory indicated one of the factors in winning an intramural championship. Did Sub T-16 have the best team? Not necessarily. Galaxy defeated the Subbers in regular season. But Galaxy's timing was off, and they reached their peak in late season and early in the playoffs. Sub T shook off the regular season loss and peaked at the right time. In the women's championship football game, Delta Theta used a strong performance from Tanya Rogers to deny the DJ.'s a second consecutive football championship. Strong winds closed down DJ.'s passing attack, turning the game into a defensive struggle. The basketball season was surprising and unpredictable at its worst. The championship game ended the same way. With Old Men leading 51-50 and four seconds left in the lf game,john Lewis of the Commodores dribbled the ball off his leg to turn the ball over to Old Men. Cecil Eager then threw a length-of-the-court pass to Ron Elston, who collided with Ron Evans of the Commodores. The foul was called on Elston, and Evans canned both ends of a one-and-one to lift the Commodores to a 52-51 victory over Old Men. The element of dedication made itself clear in the trek of the Commodores. They gave up every Saturday to practice two hours as a team, and the work paid off. After squeezing by Who Cares, the Commodoes crushed Galaxy and Frats en route to the finals. Although many thought Old Men were the most surprising team, they had the talent to get to the finals and walked past Sub T and Trojans for a berth in the finals. The womens championship did not play second fiddle to the men. Siggies edged Swish 27-25 to win the title. The game was a defensive struggle from start to finish.

R, Goodman Detefff11natlOn Ccontj biggest lead by either team was three points by Siggies early in the third quarter. The final ingredient of an intramural championship, and perhaps the most important ingredient, was the chemistry of teamwork. Sub T-16 "Domain" used teamwork to come from nowhere and stroll to the softball championship. After beating Old Men, Domain squeezed past Coast to Coast, which had been to the championship the last two years. Domain then annihilated Trojans, who previously had blitzed the top Sub T squad. The victory left Domain in the championship game against A-Team, a team composed of intimidating power. Domain, however, picked up where they had left off, jumping out to a quick lead, and dominating A-Team to win the championship. Kadies 7-6 victory over Artesians was symbolic of their quest for the overall championship: exciting and supportive while never giving up. Kadies came from two runs down in the last inning to win. The year was blemished by only a speck of controversy. the rodeo competition, Galaxy was declared the winn However, a review of the times showed Trojans to be t actual winners. Aside from the rodeo, the year in intramural sports w smooth, with the addition of three new sports. The first ne sport was mixed doubles racquetball, which took place t first weekend of the spring semester. "There was no problem with the mixed doubles," sa Luttrell. "Not any more than there was with any other spo I liked it real well. We're going to stick with it." Luttrell tried to wipe away the sweat with the "No Swe Championships," a competition that specialized in top-not concentration and mental prowess. Three parts made up t championships: video, chess and billiards. Luttrell said thought it went well, but he was disappointed in the ches "Were thinking of switching chess to backgammonne year." :im 'gf ' H ,fx ., 5 crew , aww JW, , V iw., v,,, WV, i,,7Wy,!

Goals were made to stand up on both sides of the shallow end of the pool. What made the game so unpredictable was that players had to remain in intertubes. Such restrictions left Trojans, who were accompanied with the services of 6-7 Travis Clardy and 6-8 Ian Hyslop, two front court players for the basketball team, frustrated. "It looks so much like regular basketball," said Hyslop, "but none of the fundamentals were really the same." One of the harder fundamentals that proved to be difficult to adjust to was the backboard. As a layer of water built up on the backboard as the game progressed, plus the water on the ball, the backboard was more useful as a "slip-and-slide." Luttrell said he was pleased with the participation. "It's unique, and no one has any earthly idea who will win." Another change Luttrell planned for the coming year included the absence of mixed doubles tennis. Citing lack of participation for the dismissal, Luttrell said the event would sihlgf V be replaced by an "open" doubles tournament. Intramurals excelled DOI only at ACU, but the first ste was taken this year to involve intra-city competition. Thi First Baptist Church sponsored a Tri-College Intramura Basketball Tournament, featuring four of ACU's best, ana two each from Hardin-Simmons and McMurry. ACU sent Trojans, Sub T, Galaxy and Frats. Trojan: played scrappy ball to get to the finals against McMurry': championship team. DeWayne Hall's twisting hook show with no time remaining rolled off the rim, and the Trojan: came up short, 55-53. "Competition in intramurals brings out the quality in a person," said Assistant Intramural Director Burt Ferguson "You can see his patience, anger, humility, excitement ana concentration." For others the games were only an outlet and purj enjoyment. Some people played, some went to watch an most yelled at the referees, but everybody found some waj in which to participate. - Doug Ferguron A . .

Opposite page: Kriss Brooks. 161 X Football rapped passe , dropped dreams Things were looking up for the ACU football team going into the 1982 season. The team was coming off of an 8-2 record the previous season, and because the team lost only six seniors from the 1981 team, the fans, the coaches and the players themselves figured 1982 would be the year for the Wildcats. You couldn't blame them for thinking that way. The Cats had Lone Star Conference Freshman of the Year quarterback Loyal Proffitt back to direct the offense along with some of his receivers and the running of fullback Anthony Thomas. Most of the defense was returning, so ACU looked to be a strong contender for the conference title. However, the conference title wasn't the only race in which the Wildcats were picked to be contenders. Sports Il- lurmzzed and ABC picked the Cats to be a national power in 1982. The Wildcats played a tough schedule with two NCAA I-AA schools besides the usual tough LSC slate. So the season started with high hopes. But by the time the season was over, most of the hopes were long since gone. First on the Wildcats' schedule was I-AA West Texas State. The Buffaloes had a passing attack comparable to the Wildcats. The game lasted more than three hours and 40 minutes with the teams racking up a total of 93 passes. But the Cats came away from Canyon with a 33-29 win as defen- sive back Mark jackson intercepted a pass with no time left to preserve the win. The Wildcats had overcome a 26-7 Grst-quarter disadvan- tage to pull within five points as the half ended. But Coach Ted Sitton credited his defense for the win. "Gut defense shut them down in the second half," he said. "They were able to hold them to three points, and they came up with the big plays when they were needed." ACU started having the ball bounce in its direction as the Cats recovered five WTSU fumbles and intercepted three passes. Thomas scored on a 50-yard pass from Proffitt to give the Cats their first lead of the game. Proffitt started out slowly in the game, throwing eight passes before he finally completed one. Sitton said it was mainly because timing was off, and Proffitt and his receivers had some jitters. "He wasn't firing the ball really well and they weren't catching them either," he said. "He was trying to guide the ball, almost trying to catch it for them. I hope it was just because it was the first game." But as the season progressed, it became apparent that the first game told the story of the whole year. Next came the University of Northern Colorado, a team that had never beaten the Wildcats. A cold front had moved across Colorado dropping the temperature and bringing rain with it. The weather was definitely a factor in causing the Cats some problems. But they were able to get away from Greeley with a 15-13 come-from-behind tie. The Cats trailed 15-O until the fourth period when Proffitt threw touchdown passes to Willie Graham and Steve Parker to tie the score. "At halftime I felt we would be lucky to get out of there with a tie," said Sitton. "As it ended up I didn't feel quite the same. All we had to do was kick an extra point and we would have won." Proffitt threw more than 50 passes for the second week in a row. The Wildcats crushed the Rangers from Northwestern Oklahoma the next week, 38-6, to raise, their record to 2-0-1. The Wildcats found themselves in a familiar position in the early going - behind. ACU substituted freely throughout the game as the Cats used six running backs and all three quarterbacks. But it was regular linebacker jim Tuttle who intercepted a screen pass and took it nine yards for the score. The win impressed enough people, or at least the right people. It was enough to put the Cats in the No. 4 spot in the NCAA Division Il poll. , I ...-. ,-- 'A 'X ,X 7 ..e' V -lit Football 1 165 Top left: Coach Ted Sitton talks to the press box via his head set.

Bottom: Anthony Thomas is led by Joe Hardin, 68, on a touchdown run against West Texas State. 166 f Football Dropped fcont.j But things still were not working just right. The high-powered offense that should have been scoring every time it touched the ball was hampered by penalties, turnovers and dropped passes. However, it wasn't just one part of the Wildcats' game that wasn't right - it was the whole team. Consistency was something that escaped the team. If the defense played well, the offense might not work correctly, or vice-versa. Sitton said if the Cats could ever put together a good game from both the offensive and defensive ends for the whole game, no one would be able to stay with them. The game with Northwestern State of Louisiana promised to be a game similar to last year's matchup when Proffitt hit David Russell for the winning score with no time left on the clock. Proffitt tried to turn the trick again, but came up short as the Cats lost their first game of the season, 35-30. The Wildcats turned the ball over seven times, six of them interceptions, to all but give the game to the Demons. The Cats attempted 182 passes in the four pre-conference games, and many fans pointed to that as the team's major problem. But Sitton defended his team's passing game. "We don't ever go into a game planning on throwing 50 passes a game," the coach said. "But we've been behind in every game, and we've been forced to go away from our game plan. But we're always going to throw more than we run because passing is what we do best." The opening game of conference made some people wonder about Sitton's statement as the Cats defeated the javelinas, 34-18, while Proffitt threw only 12 passes in the entire game. Instead of the high-powered aerial attack the fans had come to expect, ACU got the most from its running backs, including 203 yards from Thomas. The impressive victory added another star to the Wildcats' crown when ABC decided to regionally televise the Cats' game with the Angelo State Rams. Many students made the trip to San Angelo but most wished they had stayed home. The Rans won, 24-14, to ruin the Wildcats' TV debut. The defense played a great game, holding the Rams in four attempts from the 6-yard line and forcing ASU to settle for a field goal on another drive. But the Cats' offense couldn't move the ball and an ASU interception gave the Rams good field position with the Cats' defense unable to hold them. The Rams appeared to be taking a 17-O lead into halftime, but with less than two minutes remaining in the half, Parker returned the kickoff 107 yards for a touchdown. This loss left ACU 1-1, with East Texas State the opponent for the Homecoming game. The Wildcats led late 'U 1 .4 Lett: Dragging down an g .

Sportliglat: Dan N iederhofer The name that was called out the most for tackles on the 1982 edition of the Wildcats was linebacker Mike Funder- burg, not Dan Niederhofer. Dan, however, was responsible for much of the attention Funderburg received. "Teams knew they couldn't block me and Richard so they double-teamed us," said why Funderburg was able to make so to keep the guards off of Mike. Thar's the way our defense is supposed to work." As a result of his efforts, the senior from Pasadena all-LSC second team. considered his final season as a Wildcat a but a disappointment for the team. "I was pleased the way the year went for me," he said, Niederhofer many tackles. We "but I felt 1 could have done better. It was a disappointment for the team not to do better with all of the talent we had. We thought all we had to do was beat ASLI and Southwest Texas. We weren't always mentally prepared. The United States Football League started in the spring, and many college seniors decided to give up their last semester in school to try the new league. But Niederhofer decided to finish his last semester. "I didn't want to waste the semester since it was already paid for by my scholarship," he said. "Plus I was pretty worn down after the season. I Hgured I would be able to prepare myself better if 1 waited. I might try the NFL this summer, and maybe the USFL next year. I do want to ,give it a shot." - Scott Russell Football 1 167 ug I ,. ., -51. Left: Loyal Proffitt looks for a receiver against Southwest Texas State.

Reading a list of his ac- complishments for the year might take a while. The senior pre-dental major from Barstow, Calif., made three All-America teams last season. He was selected first team Kodak All-America and first team Associated Press All-America. Feasel also was named to second team academic All-America with a GPA of 5.82. He was named first team All-Lone Star Conference and also LSC Offensive Line-man of the year. 'Tm proud of what I got," he said. "I got something that the whole team can be proud of. It's something we can share. Sometimes I feel undeservingf' Feasel's picture will be placed in Moody Coliseum with iss f Football Ir. M Sportliglot: Grant Feasel the other All-America Wildcats, including his brother Greg "We're the first two brothers to get our pictures up there he said. "My parents are really proud, and it means a lot to me because it means so much to them." The senior was accepted at Baylor Dental School in Dallas, but the chance to play professional football could change his plans. "When I was a freshman, dental school was the only thing I was thinking about," Feasel said. He said he didn't think he was good enough to play football beyond the college level. "But a lot of teams have come down and taken and they're interested in me. I can always go school. But I owe it to my parents and to ACU ball ifI can." --Aj. Scott Rune!! 'Gasp-v if me 1 as 4 Dropped fcont.j in the game even though the Lions had outplayed them. But with a 25-23 lead with four seconds remaining on the clock, the Lions had one last attempt to win with a 59-yard field goal from the backup kicker. Unfortunately for the Wildcats the kick was good and the Lions had a 26-25 win. That left ACU in a bad position in the conference race and for possible post-season action. Sporting a 3-3-1 record overall and a 1-2 slate in conference didn't make the Cats the favorites for anything. But the defense came up with three big performances in a row as the Wildcats moved into a tie for second in the conference. ACU used two interceptions for touchdowns by jackson and Mike Funderburg to defeat Stephen F. Austin, 24-17. The defense came through again the following week against Sam Houston, holding the Bearkat's top LSC rusher to 61 yards, in 1 36-10 win. Although the third performance was the best of the three, the Wildcats came out on the short end of a 14-13 score against defending national champion Southwest Texas State. The Cats' defense allowed only one touchdown in the game - on the first SWT drive of the day - and limited a team that had been averaging more than 400 yards of total offense to only 206 yards. But while the defense played inspiring ball and got good field position, the offense couldn't take advantage of the opportunities. The Bobcats led at halftime, 7-0. In the third quarter, Proffitt was intercepted by Ken Huewitt, and the SWT cornerback went 21 yards for the score. The Wildcats came back with two fourth-quarter scores to put the score at 14-13, Sitton decided to try for the two- point conversion to give the Cats the lead. But linebacker Tim Staskus stopped Edward Gardner two yards short of the goal line, to give the Bobcats the victory and help begin SWT's trek up the road to its second straight national ACU had little to play for in the season finale against Howard Payne. The team still had a shot at a tie for second place in the conference, and Thomas had a chance to become the first Wildcat rusher since 1970 to gain more than 1,000 yards in a season. Both Thomas and the Wildcats got what they were hoping for, but it wasn't easy to accomplish their goals. Thomas got 83 of the 102 yards he needed in the first quarter, but a number of fumbles caused Sitton to take the sophomore out of the lineup. It wasn't until late in the fourth quarter that he was able to claim his goal. The Cats had a tough time with HPU before finally winning 21-14. So the Cats finished the season, one many people thought would take the team to a national title, with a 6-4-1 record. It was the type of season many would just as soon forget. Proffitt summed up the whole season for the team: "We thought the teams would come out and just lay down for us. But when you're picked to finish well, they all come gunning for you and trying to beat you. At the first of the year we were already talking about rings and stuff. We might have taken ourselves too seriously." - Scott Rune!!

Football f 169 , ump, set Some coaches talk about "winning years." Others talk about "building years." Women's volleyball coach Kathy Moore, however, didn't talk about either after the 1982 season. Instead, she talked about a "learning year" for a team that finished the season with a 3-20 record. The season began like any other. Coach Moore was ex- cited about her team although she knew she was dealing with a young group. Their enthusiasm and their sensitivity to each other's feelings made them a unique team, she said. After scrimmages against Tarleton State and Incarnate Word, Moore said she liked what she saw. The women were not used to playing together, but with time and practice she didn't forsee that as a problem. At that point in the season, Moore said her biggest problem was containing the women's eagerness so they wouldn't be disappointed when they were "less than perfect." Moore said she explained to the team that it was more desirable to have it reach its "peak" later in the season. At that time she laughted at the thought of winning every game. That, she said, "would be boring," On that basis then, the Wildcats had an exciting year. The team started the season in Moody Coliseum against Texas Tech. Moore said she anticipated a tough match - and indeed it was. The Wildcats lost four out of five games. Janice Hudson, the Tech coach, said that the ACU team had a good deal of pride and that she thought the team, though young, had the potential to be good. Practice and time - most observers prescribed the same thing. They didn't take into consideration, however, such factors as the rash of injuries that hit the team. No coach worth her salt likes to make excuses. But even Moore had to admit that it began to depress the women to prepare all week for a game and then have a player go out with an injury the day before the game. junior Karen DeArmond was the first to suffer from the bad luck - even before the first serve of the year - by spraining her ankle. It became obvious that misery really did love company when freshman Susan Ogle did the same to her ankle. junior Rhonda Rainwater outdid them both, however, by going all out and breaking her leg in a P,E. class. Freshman Stacy Atkinson then sprained her ankle - not once, but twice. And of course the injuries occurred just when the Wildcats were practicing particularly well and were apt to and learn win, crushing the women's spirits. As for the injured players themselves, Moore said usually it was not the pain on the in- juries but the fear of being hurt again that unconsciously prevented the women from pushing themselves. The Wildcats went seven matches before finally netting a win over Texas Woman's University, 15-6, 15-3. After that they lost two more games, and Moore had a depressed team on her hands. To combat the frustrations that were begin- ning to surface, Moore spent time with each of the women encouraging them to express themselves in the diaries she had asked them to keep and which she read. Throughout the season Moore stressed the use of open communication to avoid divisions in the group. With the disappointing string of losses the team was accumulating it would have been easy for the women to blame each other. That problem may have begun, said Moore, but it never took root. The season ended on a higher note, though, as the Wildcats got a lift by winning two matches in a row. The first, against Eastern New Mexico, was a real crowd-pleaser. ACU won the first game 15-12, lost the next one 14-16 and won the last game and the match, 15-10. The Cats' next win was over rival Howard Payne. ACU captured the victory by winning three out of five games.

She also was the only player who was married. Those weren't the things, however, that set her apart from the rest of the team. Her unique quality, said Coach Kathy Moore, was her Character. "I admire her," said Coach Moore. "She was so patient, and she'd never raise her voice. No matter how bad it was Doris stayed cool. She rarely let herself show things other than excitement." Moore said she thought one of the crucial reasons behind Doris' attitude was that she had played at another school and really wanted to be at ACU. "She was happy to play at ACU and had a lot of pride," Moore continued. "She was the kind of player a coach 172 f Volleyball Sportliglat: Doris Leverett wants. Whether we won or lost mattered to her, but she wouldnt pour. She had a good time." Doris, an elementary education major, will be the kind of teacher, Moore said, "that I want my little boy to have." As for being married and playing volleyball, Doris said it wasn't really very strange, more like having a steady boyfriend. She said she thought some of the freshmen thought she was different. "I sometimes felt excluded," she said, "I'm not in the dorm, and I missed out on a lot of the talk." Doris made an extra effort to be with the women. "She wasn't afraid to let her hair down," Moore said. "She wasn't stuffy and she would go out with the girls and do crazy things. She made the girls love her." - Amy Hawela' Bump, Set fcontj But after the season was over, Coach Moore reflected on her program and realized that although she would have to make adjustments, her philosophy for life and for volleyball would remain the same. "Everything that happens is for a purpose. Regardless of how the outcome looks, there's a purpose," Moore said. "I look at Coach Martin. Last year the men's basketball team did incredibly poorly. Right now they are doing incredibly well. Sometimes it takes a losing season to turn a program around," she said. Moore said 20 years from now the women would not remember the scores. But she hoped more than anything to have influenced the women for good. Moore will be happy to know that some of the most . . Z 5 L. memorable moments for DeArmond were not the close games or the victories but memories of road trips and good times. "It was a struggle," DeArmond said, "but we still had good times. I remember things like getting hit in the face four games in a row and playing in a park at Hunstvillef' Moore said she wasn't able to meet the needs of all the women. "I lost some along the line. It happens every year. But if somehow there was an example to make someone's life stronger as a Christian that's all I can hope for." If it couldn't have been a winning season, it was a good time for learning how to play the game. - Amy Halfeld SCOREBOARD ACU OPPONENT 1 3 Texas Tech 1 2 Southwest Texas State 0 2 Angelo State 0 2 Texas Lutheran 0 2 Southwest Texas State 0 2 North Dakota State 0 2 Texas Woman's University 1 2 Texas Wesleyan 1 2 Stephen F.

Through the :ourse of an 11-tournament schedule, ACU golfers drove ind chipped their way to two tournament victories and good putings in most others. "The thing about golf is that it is you against the course," Coach Don Harrison said. "It's frustrating at times, but that's what makes it so challenging." Harrison said even though the Wildcats had some rounds :hat were not as successful as possible he was still pleased with the season they had. "I was encouraged that we had a young, enthusiastic, ward-working team," Harrison said. "The basic problem with 1 young team, though, is inconsistency." The Wildcats showed very little inconsistency when they iompeted in four triangular tournaments with Hardin Sim- nons and McMurry. ACU finished second in the first three Jefore winning its first tourney of the season Nov. 5 in :riangular number four at the Abilene Country Club. ACU logged its second victory April 4-5 in the Angelo State University Invitational at the Bentwood Country Club n San Angelo. Harrison had a very young team representing ACU as one senior, john Sconiesg two sophomores, Eddie Holt and Lewis Wilksg and two freshmen, Kerry MeHaffey and Chip Seltzer competed in the Lone Star Conference tournament. The Cats scored a 54-hole team total 1,257 in the April Z4-26 tourney in Boerne to come away with fourth place in ihe final LSC standings. Another of the year's highlights was Lewis Wilks' four- 'ound 311 for the 10th best score in the conference tourna- ment placing him on the All-LSC second team for 1983. Fourth was a good finish for the young ACU golfers, but as far as Harrison was concerned the outstanding highlight of the season had come two weeks before at the Abilene In- tercollegiate played at Maxwell Municipal and Abilene Country Club. The tournament-hosting Cats blistered the course for an even par 284 final round to leap from sixth to third place. "That was by far our best round all year, I was very im- pressed with their performance," the coach said. Harrison said he established two goals for the ACU golf team before the season. One was to improve in the con- ference standings and the other was to increase the number on the squad. "We did both," the coach said. "Out of 13 players at least nine will return for the 1983-84 campaign, and we made our best showing in the LSC since 1976" - Phillip Dutton SCOREBOARD TOURNAMENT PLACED Triangular 2nd Triangular 2nd Triangular 2nd ASU Invitational 5th Triangular lst Trinity University Invitational 4th Southwest Texas Invitational Sth Cameron University Invitational 6th ASU Invitational lst Abilene Intercollegiate 3rd LSC Tournament 4th si- -nfl- CD E -av Left: Kevin Blair watches his putt roll tothe cup.

"We beat good people." It was a quiet summary of a year that was weighted with impressive wins and gutsy individual performances. McCoy called the Texas Invitational at Georgetown the definitive "highlight of the year." Laurie Taylor led the Wildcats to victory and a place in university records by defeating the University of Texas by a smug 13 points. Not since 1977 had any school beat UT. Taylor ran her best 5,000-meter time of 17:52, just ahead of Wendy Norman of UTSA. Browning placed fourth, and Lopez beat her own best time by 30 seconds. The Wildcats had to save their celebrating to concentrate on the NCAA Division II meet in Warresnburg, Mo. The meet proved to be worth the wait, though, as the women ff"""" i" ,. odd faced U.S. Air Force Academy, the No. 3 ranked team in the nation, and put one over on a team that Vinsant told the Op- timift had been "anticipating an easy victory." Taylor and another runner vied with each other for the lead the entire race but then were both passed by Nancy Goodwin of Central Missouri State. Taylor, at 18:03 placed second. Browning and Lopez secured fourth and fifth, and Vinsant and Huddleston 12th and 14th in a team effort that captured the victory for the Cats. At the meet MCoy was named Southcentral Region Coach of the Year for 1982. With a division title in their pockets, the Wildcats then prepared to take on top teams in the country at the NCAA nationals in St. Cloud, Minn. Here their story reaches "one of those bad endings you can't seem to help when you take girls from the flatlands to the snow," said McCoy. Running in 6- to 8-inch-deep snow and a wind chill factor of minus 15, the women spent most of their energy just try- ing to keep their footing, Taylor said. ACU placed 10th. Lopez finished in 46th-place to be the top placer for the Wildcats. - Amy Haweld SCOREBOARD MEET TEAM PLACE DATE Sept. 18 Texas A8rM Invitational, 5 College Station Sept. 25 ACU Invitational, Abilene 1 Oct. 2 UTA Invitational, Arlington 2 Oct. 9 UT at SA Invitational 1 San Antonio Oct. 16 ASU Dual Meet, San Angelo 1 Oct. 23 Texas Invitational, 1 Georgetown Oct. 30 NCAA Division II Regionals 1 Warrensburg, Mo. 13 NCAA Nationals 10 St. Cloud, Minn.

Bottom loft: Crocs country team. 178 I Men's Cross Country See how the run just like the courses the cross country runner is expected to run, the Wildcats' 1982 cross country season had its ups and downs. The season ended on an up, however. Running against eight teams at the last meet of the year, the Lone Star Conference meet in Georgetown, proved to be the culmination of a year of hard work. ACU's runners finished second, fourth, fifth, 14th and 15th to run away with the title for the first time in several weeks. The team opened its season by finishing fourth out of eight schools in the ACU Invitational at Abilene's Nelson Park. The cross country team was in San Angelo Oct. 9 for a dual meet. ACU runners finished second, third, fourth, eighth and ninth to capture the race. ASU had been picked before the season to win the conference in cross country. With all the preliminaries behind them, the Cats traveled north for the NCAA Division II regional meet in War- rensburg, Mo. The Cats had to finish at least second to qualify for the nationals. "We learned a lot from that meet," Coach Kittley said. The team Hnished fourth behind three Missouri schools. ACU's Doug jones made a great showing at the regional meet. He was nipped at the tape, finishing second but quali- fying for the nationals. Even though the team had not qualified as a unit, it had one more meet before the season was over. "It's a little weird to run the conference meet after the regionals but that's what happened this year," Kittley said. The Cats fulfilled their coach's prediction. "It was our goal at the beginning of the year to win conference, and we did it," said Kittley after the meet.

He still had a chance to be an All-American at the nationals in St. Cloud, Minn. jones traveled to the meet with ACU's womens team. When they arrived in St. Cloud they were greeted by an ugly sight for a cross country runner, Drifts of snow, some as big as five feet, blanketed the area. After a season of determina- tion,jones was about to run the most important race of his career in a snow flurry. jones gave a valiant effort and finished 26th, just one place away from All-American status. 1982 was a good year for ACU cross country runners as the Cats' young team not only compiled some pretty im- pressive results but emerged as the LSC champions. - Phillip Dutton Q Q LH .

Teague announced a party after Chapel in honor of the team. He said the school loved the women "when they win, when they lose, and when they've been abused." Only then did many students learn about the mix-up that had prevented the Wildcats from playing. The women themselves weren't informed of their disqualification until the afternoon of their first scheduled game. 'Tve never been to a funeral as depressing as that was," McCoy said describing the team's reaction at the meeting. "They didn't go to pieces, but they were just as down as if my mom had died."

Going from high school into the college game alone was something, but Claudia experienced something in the first part of the season that was totally new - losing. The Wildcats lost their first three games of the season. "It depressed me because I've never been on a losing team in my life," she said. "Losing three in a row was tough because I had never lost that many games before. In my high school career I only lost two games." But the Cats rebounded and finished ZL8. They also won ACU's first Lone Star Conference womens basketball title, Along the way Claudia was named the LSC Freshman of the Year, as well as being named to the all-LSC first team. 184 f Womens Basketball Claudia was surprised with the ease in which she went from high school basketball to college ball. "I didn't expect to do as well as I did," she said. "And I didn't expect to play as much as I did. I had a whole different picture of college basketball. I thought it would be harder than it was." It didn't seem to be very hard for the talented freshman as she averaged 21.2 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. The season ended on a sour note for the Cats, though, as they were disqualified in the NCAA Division II playoffs. The disqualification was still a sore spot with Claudia. "It really hurt," she said, "but I think it did have a blessing in it. It helped bring the team a lost closer together. I think it's gonna make us a stronger team next year." -j. Stott Rune!!

The Wildcats finished 14-14 for the year, the best record nce Mike Martin became head coach trhee years ago. 'Iany fans thought, however, that it should have been much etter, considering the fine recruiting year Martin and assis- int coach Dave Merrill had. Martin pulled in Greg johnson, a 6-3 guard from 'Iilwaukee, Wis.g Tony Turner, a 6-5 guard from Cheyenne, Vyo.g and john Robinson, a 6-4 guard from Shreveport, La., 'ho specialized in shooting percentage and rebounds, a 'ansfer from Southwest Christian College. But Martin didn't look at just junior colleges. He also ranaged to sign Ryant Green, a top guard from Plano, and Paryn Shearmire, a shooting guard who averaged 37 points a ame at Archer City. Put those groups with a solid returning crew of Craig Villiams, who was named honorable mention All-American ie year before, Mike Davis, a heady 6-5 forward from Visner, La., Travis Clardy, a 6-7 center from Lubbock who lways got the job doneg and 6-7 center Ian Hyslop, the Vildcats' top freshman from the year before, and you're looking at a very promising season. The Wildcats opened it by sweeping the "Texas- Oklahoma-Kansas Shootout" with victories over Emporia State, Marymount and Central State of Oklahoma. Williams was named the tournaments Most Valuable Player, and johnson was named to the all-tournament team. "We played good, but we did make a few mistakes," said Martin. Williams suffered an ankle injury in the second half of the Central State game and played sparingly the next two games. However, ACU continued to roll, chalking up victories over Wayland Baptist and Mary Hardin-Baylor. just as Williams was nursing his ankle back to health, however, Robinson crashed to the floor in the Wayland Bap- tist game, shattering his knee cap. Robinson spent the entire season on the bench. One thing Martin did to promote the basketball program was to play NCAA-I schools. The agenda featured the University of Oklahoma and Kansas State. Oklahoma, rated 10th in the nation by Sporty Illzulrazed, abused the Wildcats 110-61. "We were rattled when we came in," Martin had said after the game. "Well do better against Kansas State."

Qcont.j After a disappointing road trip, ACU headed or Hawaii to play in the Chaminade Tourna- ment. The Wildcats dropped two games to Chaminade and Northern Iowa, During the tournament, however, several players mentioned a degree of adversity, "We just werent used to each other yet," said Clardy, "There was a lot of ten- sion out there." The Wildcats began LSC play against defending champs Stephen F. Austin. The Lumberjacks shot a blistering 64 per- cent from the field to easily win the game. ACU then moved on to Huntsville to take on the Bearkats of Sam Houston. After committing 29 turnovers, however. the Wildcats walked away with their second con- ference loss. "We just had a mental breakdown with about three minutes remaining," said Merrill. "We made some un- forced errors, and they took advantage of them." ACU finally caught on to the "overtime game" by beating Texas A8cI, 75-75. The game was the first at home following the Christmas break, and 2,800 came out to Moody Col- iseum to see quite a show, including Turner's electrifying dunk that brought the crowd to their feet. Martin said after the game that the Cats should pick up momentum, but Southwest Texas State disfigured the Wildcats' press in the next game, and ACU shot a disastrous 37 percent from the field in the second half to hand SWT a easy victory. "The fans have to realize," said johnson, "th: with two or three new players, it takes time to learn to pla with each other." The Wildcats went on in the next game to beat Angel State, who was picked to win the conference. This gam marked the emergence of Travis Clardy. He had been use sparingly all season because of what Martin called an "a titude problem." "Travis can start at center if he really wani to," Martin said. But just when it seemed as if the Wildcats started to ge going, they returned to a lack of mental toughness and poc free-throw shooting. The Cats gave the next game to Ea: Texas State by allowing them to score 28 of 68 points fror the free-throw line, ACU then played what Merrill said was the best game the year in beating Howard Payne in Brownwood, and Cats rested at 3-4 in the LSC, good for a fourth-place at midway point. Although the Wildcats were looking for revenge agai i East Texas, everyone was cold, and Clardy came in 1 picked the Cats up, scoring 11 points to keep ACU in game, which they eventually won.

Greg johnson Big things were expected of transfer Greg johnson as the basketball season started. After the Wildcats won all three games to sweep the "Texas-Oklahoma-Kansas Shootout," Coach Mike Martin predicted johnson would be one of the Wildcats' Most Valuable Players, He was named to the all-tournament team for his performances in the three games, "Greg had a good season for us," said Martin, "especially since he had to learn a new system." Greg, a 6-3 guard from Milwaukee, Wis., and a transfer from Northern Iowa Community College, continued to per- form well for the Cats. He was an honorable mention selec- tion on the All-Lone Star Conference team. The season was an up and down one for the Wildcats, but Greg was the Cats' most consistent performer averaging 12.4 points per game to lead the team in scoring and averaging five rebounds per game. He also assisted on 148 baskets dur- ing the season and had a season field goal percentage of 50 percent. Those statistics earned him the Star Award at the All-Sports Banquet. "If he was on, he meant a lot to the team offensively," said Martin. "But if he wasn't having a good game, it took some away from the team." His best game of the season came against Texas A8zI when he scored 26 points to lead the Cats in scoring to a 104-86 rout of thejavelinas. -j. Stott Rum!! Men's Basketball X 189 One da tcontj about its earlier loss to ACU, but the Wildcats ung together, and Johnsons tip-in with two seconds left gave them a 65-64 victory. That victory put the Wildcats in a tie for second place, and their destiny was in their own hands. ACU worked hard all week getting prepared for Sam Houston State and its 6-10 Nigerian center, but the Wildcats shot a disappointing 38 percent from the field and let the Bearkats escape with any hopes ACU had to win the conference. The last home game against SFA brought the season to a boil. After the Lumberjacks took a comfortable lead they slowed the pace to cruise to an easy win. After the game, Williams, the only senior on the team, quit. Martin had pulled Williams early, and he only played slightly more than half the game. "He wasn't playing the defensive role we needed," said Martin. Williams said he was tired of basketball. "l don't even like to watch it on But the Wildcats took the circumstances and dit something no one expected. Starting a smaller, quicker line up, the Wildcats upset conference-leader Southwest Texas i San Marcos in the following game. "There was a goo- feeling out here," said Martin. "Everyone was loose, nobod cared who took the shot." Ending the conference schedule with a 7-7 record, th Cats, seeded fifth, had to return to Angelo State to play th Rams in the first round of the LSC Tournament. Although Davis said he believed the Wildcats outplaye. ASU, they shot only 38 percent from the free-throw line tt keep the Rams in the game. The season came to a Clos when ASU's Mark Williams 25-foot prayer was answered a the buzzer and the Rams won by two points. Nevertheless, Martin was pleased with the year.

He's the first one to come off the bench, and he's im- mediately ready to go when he comes in. We dont have to wait for him to warm up. That's why we like to have him come in all ready to play."

The its didn't win any tournaments, they won a few dual mat- es, and they finished fifth of six in the Lone Star Con- -rence tournament. However, when a team has one-half of one scholarship, 's as tough to compete against teams like Southwest Texas md Stephen F. Austin as trying to push a nuclear spending ill through the U.S. Congress. Led by juniors Mark Hathorn and jon Lanier, the Cats :rved and volleyed their way to several fine performances. hilip Franklin, Levi jones, Bart Hounsel, Rob Westman, ,oger White, Todd Schollenbarger and Eric Hancock made p the rest of the squad. The fall season started at the Texas Wesleyan Invitational. am Moore, who did not return to school after the hristmas vacation, was the top finisher for ACU. " ACU lost matches with Odessa College and West Texas tate, but had a comeback victory over host school South lains College in an invitational Oct. 9-10. ACU won all iree doubles matches, after losing three of four singles, to ike the overall match against South Plains. In other action in the fall the men lost 5-4 to Hardin- immons in a dual match Oct. 26 and defeated Weatherford college 7-2 on ACU's scour's Nov. 13. The first action for the spring was a dual match with Texas Tech Feb. 8. Lanier and Hathorn teamed up to win the top-seeded doubles match, the only match the Cats won. At the McLennan County Community College Invita- tional Feb. 26, the Cats finished in the top five out of 16 teams. Baylor, TWC, UTA, Odessa College and TCU were among the teams at the tourney. Hathorn lost in the semis to the eventual tournament winner, and almost every other match was decided by one point in the no-add rule tourney. Franklin and Westman lost their championship doubles match in three sets. In the LSC duals leading to the tournament, ACU beat A851 and East Texas but lost to Southwest Texas, Angelo State, Stephen F. and Sam Houston to enter the conference showdown in fourth place. "It was the most disappointing tennis we played all year," Lanier said of the LSC tournament. ACU could only manage to get one player out of the first round as Franklin was defeated in the quarterfinals. Shortly before school ended in May, Coach Cecil Eager announced he would be stepping down as tennis coach to do more teaching. He was replaced by Hillcrest Church of Christ minister Allen Tappe. - Phillip Dutton Levi Jones chases down the ball to make a backhand shot. Men's Tennis f 193 An Eager effort Playing on the last tennis team coached by Cecil Eager would be one of the memories the women would have of the 1982-83 season. Another lasting memory would be the Cats' second place finish in the Lone Star Conference. The top seeded members of the 1982-85 squad were Angie Shoemaker, Bette Anderson, Toni Fatheree, Alice Vickers, Andrea Hunt andjanie Webb. Returning to the South Plains College Invitational as the defending champions was the first test of the season for the Cats. However, the tight matches didn't go ACLf's way, and the team came away with a 1-2 match record and third place in the four-team event. Eager was impressed with the play of Shoemaker, who won all three of her singles matches. The next weekend the team traveled to Fort Worth to play in the TWC Invitational. "The competition was stiff and the girls played very well," Eager said. Teams from TCU, Cooke County, Tyler junior College and Louisiana Tech were among the entries. Webb and Hunt won the consola- tion brackets in their flights. Hardin-Simmons came down Ambler for a dual match Oct. 26 and was SEHK home with a 5-4 loss as the women were paced by the doubles play again. Vickers and Fatheree won singles matches, and all three doubles teams were victorious. The women shut out Weatherford College for their last match of the fall by winning five singles matches and four doubles. They continued their shutout string by scalping McMurry 6-0 in a dual match Feb. 23 at home. Webb established herself as ACU's top seed for the spring. Hunt and Vickers took their top-seed ranking to the McLeenan County Community College Tournament inl Waco Feb. 26 and proceeded to win the tournament. "The ,fy played very wellg they're a good doubles team," Eager sai The Cats finished fifth in the tournament but every was very close and proved to be a good warm-up for play. oodmann Lett: Teri Fatheree keeps her eye on the ball as she prepares tor a backhand shot.

Shoemaker lost her bid for a conference championship 'sing in the finals, and Hunt and Vickers advanced to the 'mis before bowing out ofthe tournament. The play overall was good enough to put ACU in second ace for 1985 in the first-ever LSC play for the Wildcats. After the season was over, and because he wanted to evote more time to teaching, Eager resigned as tennis nach. He was replaced by Allen Tappe, minister at Hillcrest hurch of Christ.

By winning its second consecutive national champion- ship, the men's track team was very successful. Before the start of the season, the world of track and field knew very little about Abilene Christian University, What lit- kle they did know was that ACU had a couple of good pole vaulters, but the good one was gone. However, with two great additions and beasrly dedication, the Wildcats' 1983 Squad put together one of the finest teams in ACU's rich history. "This has been one of the best track teams in ACU history, if not the very best," said Coach Don Hood, After last year, however, one might have been led to believe otherwise. The Cats lost Billy Olson, Steve Parker and 400-meter specialist Kris Brooks to graduation. Plus, Kelly Smith, who gave ACU strength in the 400-meter in- termediate hurdles, was ineligible. So where did ACU go right? The biggest boost came Af p rg . E KJ l -is g , . A . X r ,- , K C ,gs-we - ' - 39' ' . . JY' , V -Wai?" when Sam Houston State decided ro drop its track program. That decision left Charlie Phillips, the conference champion in the 400 meters for two straight years, with no home. Hood gladly opened the doors. The Wildcats picked up another big boost when Mark Witherspoon, perhaps the most versatile sprinter ACU had ever seen, transferred from the University of Wisconsin. The year started out on the right foot. ACU revenged last year's loss to Angelo State at the Border Olympics in Laredo. ASU came right back to defeat the Wildcats in their own backyard at Elmer Gray Stadium, however, winning the Wildcat Relays by 15 points. On March 29, the Wildcats whipped ASU in the rubber match, out-dueling the Rams 94-60, However, the victory took a backseat to the attention centering on the pole vault pit, where Pursley set the American record of 18-1095. The Texas Relays were the beginning of extensive road trips for the mens track team.

In the role vault, Dale jenkins elevated his way past the 18-foot narrier to go 18-4 and win the college division. In the 400- neter dash, Phillips broke the 46-second barrier. He had run under 46 seconds in every race since. For the third year in a ow, the Wildcats were invited to the 7-11 Invitational, eaturing Texas-El Paso, Southern Methodist CNCAA indoor ,nd outdoor championsj, Southern California and Angelo State, At that point in the season, Hood was getting an idea if how strong his squad actually was. When asked whether re felt honored to compete with such NCAA giants as SMU .nd USC, Hood said, "I think it's an honor for them to have is come. Where else do you have such great athletes like enkins, Pursley, Phillips and the rest ofthem?" joel Hood, manager of the team, said SMU track coach vlonty Stratton wasn't all that excited. "He was an ACU graduate," said the younger Hood. "He doesn't like to lose to us. He didn't enter an event that he knew we would win." SMU didn't enter the 400-meter relay, but ACU still had UTEP and powerful USC to contend with. The race proved the Wildcats' prowess: Tommy Thompson pulled away from the USC anchorman to give ACU the victory. After competing successfully at the Mount San Antonio College Relays in Walnut, Calif., the Wildcats received a major setback at the LSC meet in San Marcos. Needing a win in the mile relay to win the conference championship, ACU got two strong final legs to win the event and the meet. Or so they thought. Meet officials ruled that when Witherspoon cut in front of ASU's runner on the third leg, he didn't give him enough room. ACU was disqualified, thus losing the conference championship. "It was all a bunch of nonsense," said a frustrated Hood. "You could see he gave him plenty of room." Lett: Shotputtsr David Simmons grimacos as he throws the shot in Gray Stadium.

ZOO f Mens Track The dynasty QCont.j Once again ACU headed west, competing in the California Relays in Modesto, Calif. With such performances in nationwide meets, ACU earned the recognition it deserved. But the recognition reached a high in the 1,600-meter relay in Modesto. Led by Arthur Williams' 47.5 and Thompsonm's 46.5, the Wildcats wereout to their best start. And they kept right on steaming. Witherspoon accelerated to a 45.2, his personal best. Still, ACU trailed highly-regarded Arkansas by a considerable distance. But that kind of lead was very dangerous when Phillips was at the anchor, Phillips blazed to a 44,4 split, narrowly losing to Arkansas at the tape. For a consolation prize, the relay team broke the school record by three full seconds, turning in a super-sonic time of 3:05.57. ACU waited all year long for its opportunity at Cape Girardeau, Mo., the site of the NCAA-II meet. However, trouble began to brew when the meet officials declared Witherspoon ineligible because of his transfer status. The loss of Witherspoon meant that ACU would lose a runner who had qualified for five events. The Wildcats' patience began to wear thin, but the wait was well worth it, as ACU was paid its second consecutive national championship, Bright started it off in high fashion for the Wildcats by winning the decathlon with a school record of 7,743 points. ACU obeyed the expectations in the pole vault, placing 1-2-3 5.jenkins won the title, followed by Pursley. Both qualified for the Division I meet. Although Phillips dropped the baton in the 400-meter relay, he more than atoned for his miscue. First, he won the 400-meter dash in 45.1, a NCAA-II record. Phillips' most sensational effort came in the mile relay, however. Needing a high finish to win the championship, Phillips, anchoring the relay, was in third place when he got the baton.

"It was a great disappointment," said Phillips. "l had worked hard to go home to Houston. I was ready. I wanted to win in front of my family."

In the LSC finale she won the 200 meters and the long jump, anchored the 1,600 meter 'elay and the 400 meter relay teams to third-place finishes, md placed third in the 100 meters. Taylor was equally domi- iant as she won the 800 meters, the 1,500 meters and the 5,000 meters, and finished second in the 3,000 to teammate lulie Browning. All total the Cats got scoring punch from 15 athletes to wrap up the title. Stacy Atkinson set an ACU record in the 400 meters as she won the event in 57.01. Keisha McDuffie set the school record in the 100-meter hurdles with a prelim :ime of 14.58. Three other ACU records were broken at the LSC meet. The relay times of 46.02 in the 400 and 3:49 in the l,600, along with Angela Tate's 146-foot discus throw were new school marks. Record setting was a trend for the women in 1983 as 12 new marks were established during the 13-meet season. Beginning with the only indoor competition of the year at :he Oklahoma Track Classic in Oklahoma City, the Cats roll- ed up impressive statistics. No meet team standings were kept, but Taylor placed second in the two-mile rungjackson began the long jump season with a second place finish, and Browning came in second in the mile. In a special invita- tional mile run, Taylor was impressive with a fourth-place finish. The Cats traveled to Austin Feb. 26 for the UT Invita- tional where the team qualified Taylor and Browning for na- tional competition. Browning won the 5,000 meters and placed fourth in the 3,000 meters, qualifying in both. Taylor also qualified in two events, winning the 3,000 meters and the 1,500 meters.jackson placed first in the long jump. The Border Olympics in Laredo was the first opportunity for ACU to see how strong a team it had. The Cats placed second, behind the University of Texas, with 62 points. jackson won the long jump again, Browning continued to excel in the 5,000 meter, winning the eventg and Taylor plac- ed second in the 3,000 meters. ACU was host for the Wildcat Relays March 12 and really started to flex its muscles. ACU scored 134 points and the second place finisher had only 78. jackson set an ACU record in the long jump at 20-4W, and also won the 100- and 200-meter races. Taylor was first in the 5,000 and 3,000 meters, and second in the 1,500 meters. Browning won the P500 and placed second in the 3,000 and 5,000. ' Susan Ogle won the high jump and placed third in the long jump. Tate placed second in the discus and fourth in the shot put. The team spent spring break competing in two meets. The first was a triangular with Texas Christian and Baylor. The Cats earned nine first-place finishes. Taylor took high honors in the 800, 1,500 and two-mile, Paula Devane won the 100 meters, jackson won the 200 meters, Regina Swaim in her first meet won the long jump, Ogle won the high jump, with an ACU record of 5-83 and Tate won the discus. The 400- meter relay team took first place. The following weekend the Cats traveled to Kingsville for the Coastal Bend Classic. They continued to demolish op- posing teams, scoring 221 points to A8zI's 85. jackson set a meet record with a leap of 19-111: in her long jump victory and then won the 200 meters with a meet- record-tying 25.17. The 400-meter relay team of Keisha McDuffie, Devane, Pam Keese, and jackson set the meet record of 47.79 for first place. Taylor set ACU and meet records with a victory in the 1,500 meters at 412697.

Keese,jackson, Debra Griffin and Atkinson ran the Cats to victory in the 1,600-meter relay. Coach McCoy split the team into three parts for the weekend of April 9 and sent one section to the Texas Relays in Austin, one to the Lady jack Relays in Nacogdoches and the other to McMurry's invitational. This didn't seem to phase any of the Wildcats, though, as Nancy Schlender won the discus and placed second in the javelin, Karen Arkell won the high jump, and Audrey Pope was second in the event at the McMurry meet.

The Cats finished first, second and third in the 100 meters and the 200 meters with the same three people. In the 100 Devane won, followed by jackson and Swaim. Then in the 200 jackson took top honors followed by Devane and Swaim.jackson and Swaim finished first and third in the long jump. McDuffie won both the 100-meter hurdles and the 200-meter hurdles, and Tate won the discus and set the ACU record with a first-place 40-5 shot put toss. The 400-meter relay team of McDuffie, Devane, Keese and jackson set the meet record, winning in 47.6. Then the 1,600-meter relay team of Atkinson, Keese, Griffin and jackson set another meet record at 315524. For the first time in a month the Cats then had to go to a meet where they weren't the favorite. At the john jacob Invitational in Norman, Okla., ACU faced the toughest competition it would face all season with teams from Oklahoma University, Arkansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State among the entries. It didn't shake jackson, though, as she won the long jump again with Swaim placing second. Taylor was second in the 1,500-meter run. The tough competition must have been the security the Wildcats needed because their next championship. Taking the LSC crown wasn't the last hurdle the team had to jump, though.

Or group anything. Remember how difficult it was to get a group of people, all of whom claimed to be your friends, to discard favorites and biases and actually accomplish something? The cheerleaders did it on a grand scale - without the benefit of a written set of rules - to solve problems. Imagine spending a year with the same 10 people. Think of having to travel for hours, spending the better part of your weekends cheering at games with the same faces. Imagine trying to agree what looked best and what the crowd needed or wanted. "It's hard leading leaders," said Milton Buckelew, senior public relations major and head cheerleader, as he summed up being in charge of the varsity cheerleaders. However, Buckelew and Matt Ray, both second-year cheerleaders, said the squad got along very well. "Especially," said Ray, junior radio-TV major from Dallas, "considering we had so many different kinds of people." Buckelew added, "You can cheer for eight years and have some ideas that are pretty dominant. And then you can cheer for two years and have some really different ideas. You have to learn to compromise." Cheering can really test character, Buckelew said, because an image of being energetic and enthusiastic must be maintained. And there's no allowance for days when everything's gone wrong and the weekend had pro- mised the last chance to become reacquainted with a pillow. "Even if you're in a bad mood," Buckelew said, "you have to cheer. I'm not one who hides that well either. But you have to." And they want to. They were different types, but they blended their common traits of fierce school pride and exuberance. - Amy HaWe!d Top: Head cheerleader Milt Buckelew teaches the crowd a new chant at a midnight pep rally.

Cheerleaders f 209 Fl, Goodman F res moti ation Five of the eight freshman cheerleaders made their debut as cheerleaders last fall. Mike McNeil, pre-med major from Abilene, said the group relied heavily on head cheerleader Kathy Carr for help because the men and one of the women had never cheered before. Being a novice to the field, McNeil had nothing with which to compare college cheering. His impression of the experience was that he learned more about seven other peo- ple than about cheering. Unless they cheered with the varsity squad, McNeil said the freshmen really had "very little au- dience to get fired up anyway" because attendance at women's sports was sparse. . . lt's a characteristic of ACU: we had more fun getting to know each other than cheering," said McNeil. Granted, the group wasn't in the limelight. But the freshmen had a season to learn the physical skills of cheering as well as seeing all the extra work the squads did. Starlyn Thomas, public relations major from Vernon, said college cheering was different from high school because all the organizing was left up to the squad. "It was easier in high school because we all had the same schedules and a sponsor. The problems here we've had to work out ourselves," she said. "It was good experience. We knew we'd make up because we could tell when somebody was mad. We sat down and talked about it." There were no special charms for this bunch of freshmen. just like their classmates they had to make adjustments if they wanted to get along. -Amy Haweld Top: Head cheerleader Kathy Carr maintains perfect balance in the hands of her partner Chuck Stephenson.

To save Willy from a woolly decline, the idea of Wilma vas conceived. Actually, said jim McKissick, second-year ,. ay tw Eugwdrs Y bashful they ain't Willy and unofficial head mascot, the idea came up because U35 very good people tried out for the Willy Wildcat posi- tion." Several men and women were chosen to alternate play- ing Willy and Wilma, but McKissick said this ended up be- ing more of a problem because communication among the group became too scattered to be effective. On the whole, Wilma didn't go over as well as Willy because she didn't look like her partner. McKissick said she needed to be "more animated." However, Willy continued to have as much crowd appeal as ever. McKissick said the key to Willy's ability to get a crowd cheering was the total lack of inhibition displayed by those portraying Willy. That was the real joy of being a mascot, he said. "Everybody had some showmanship inside," he said "but behind the mask you were free to let go. That's what I got out of it." Enthusiasm built up in his voice as he continued. "You can do things with Willy you could not do in real life . . . and nobody knows who you are." The unabashed Willys were McKissick, Charles Pullen, Bob Griffith and Danny Dodds. Wilma was played by Janie Webb,jobie Cabell, Denise Whiteside and Tamara Childers. - Amy Haweld 2 CJ H ,.

Groups helped each member form, discover and polish perspectives about different topics and helped them develop friendships along the way. From the Big Purple marching band to the Campus Service Organization, students took part in the extracurricular groups that helped make ACU different from other univer- sities. And many found that the things they learned in groups became as important as things they learned in classes. -- ' Section edited by Rachel Rainwater G roups I A Capp lla The A Cappella chorus highlighted the year with its per- minutes of music.

"It was rare to have a week when we did not have some type of activity planned," said Aggie Club president Darrell Stewart. With an active membership of 110, the club experienced a lot of growth and had "extremly high participation in all of the club activities," said Stewart, a senior agriculture- business major from Roscoe. One of the activities sponsored by the club was an outreach program, where members would travel to small rural congregations to conduct church services, teach Bible classes and conduct youth rallies. Stewart said that a large number of the Aggie Club members were involved in leader- ship roles at the Hamby and Hawley Churches of Christ. ggie CML Other activities of the year included the rodeo exhibitio and the ACIT-Iiardin Simmons Intramural Rodeo. The clu helped sponsor the "Hammer the javelinasw barbecue an rodeo at Allen Farm before the ACU-Texas A841 footba game. The club also sponsored a Homecoming breakfas and the Intercollegiate Rodeo Team Competition. In keeping with tradition, Stewart said the club conductei its annual ham sale in Qctober to raise funds for club ac tivities. This year the club sold more than 600 hams, whic were purchased from Gooch Packing Co. in Abilene. The majority of the funds were used to cover judginy team expenses and to send club members to nationa meetings, Stewart said.

Association for Computing Machinery "This fall we named our chapter of Association for Com- puting Machinery, a national organization for computer scientists, 'Cell Block S239'," said Scott Boyd, chairman. Boyd said the group decided on this name because members worked in Foster Science Building Room 239 so much it seemed like a prison cell. They made the group of- ficial by adopting a logo for T-shirts and wearing hats with :heir computer numbers on them. ACM sponsored a computer dating project the week before Sadie Hawkins. ACUDATE matched men and women with similar interests. Men and women filled out a questionnaire to get their names on the ACUDATE roster. Women paid 50 cents to ensure that their names got on the list of "that certain guy." Men paid 25 cents for a list of the women who filled out a questionnaire for ACUDATE. Boyd said ACM sponsored the project as a "service" to the students of ACU. The ACM participated in intercollegiate programming competitions. The group competed with schools such as Baylor University, Texas A8zM University and University of Texas. In the spring the group toured Electronic Data Systems and the University of Texas. Mark Rokey, senior applied math major, said he enjoyed receiving the ACM trade journals he got with his member- ship - Communication of the ACM and journal of ACM. "Sometimes I don't understand them, but they're in- teresting anyway," said Rokey. "Letdown" parties after Homecoming and Sing Song were a favorite activity for the "Cell Block." The parties in- volved the group leaving their computers and going to a park or the lake for recreation, just to "get away from it all." Keith Canfield, sophomore computer major, said, "I en- joy being a member of ACM because it allows conversation with others that have the same interests and background as you do." - Rachel Rainwater . ,, ',,.,, 1 I , 'Q ?

The band played at the ACU-San Angelo game instead of attending a weekend retreat at Brownwood as they had plan- ned. "We didn't go to the game just because it was being televised," said Whitwell. "We wanted to present to the Southwest region the best impression of ACU we could." The band planned a trip to Denver, Colo., to play during the halftime of the Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game, but because of the National Football League strike, the game was cancelled. The final decision not to go was made the day before the band was to depart. "October 3, 1982 . . . a day that will live in infamy," said Whitwell. The band kept its sense of humor about the disappoint- ment and had a "wake." Band members dressed in black and wore black armbands. They decorated the band hall to look like the stadium in Denver complete with an NFL symbol in the middle of the floor. They hung murals of crowds and put up goal posts. The thermostats were turned down so the students would feel like they were in Colorado. Kevin Baird presented the "eulogy" and the group ended the service with a party. They drank Orange Crush soft drink . 1 and sang songs such as "Rocky Mountain High." "We wen crushed by the Crush," said Tim Beckett, Big Purpli president. The band raised money to buy food, clothes and toys fo eight to 10 underprivileged children. Suggestions were madn by local congregations of the Church of Christ of whicl children would benefit most from the program. 'After Thanksgiving, a collection can was passed severa different times and classes competed to see which one coulr collect the most money for the children. The band invitet the children to the Christmas party and provided activities tr entertain the students and the children. Movies and cartoon were shown, and band members kept the party lively witl skits, puppet shows and games. The Big Purple kept many traditions at the Christmas par ty. The day began at the Pancake House. Then the groul went to select the Christmas "bush." It was taken to thi band hall and decorated for the party. A traditional decoration was the "Frenching horn," an ole beat-up French horn decorated with lights and misletoe. Per formances were given by the freshman men, the junior bani members and a bottle band. The evening ended with devotional.

Q Blg Purple Qconnj It was the last season for both of the Big Purple drum majors. Bart Moyers, senior from Dallas, was drum major for three years and Steve Sargent, senior from Marion, Ala., was drum major for two years. Whitwell said, "We appreciate their leadership over the years especially in view of the change in band director. They were always receptive to change and did what was in the best interest of the band." "The band is not a club, but is a family," said Moyers. "We laugh, cry, learn and have fun together. In high school I learned how to play an instrument and learned to be a leader, but I only did it to win contests and awards. "In the Big Purple there are no contests. The Big Purple made me appreciate those talents I acquired. Now I just en- joy making music, and most of all, making music with Chris- tians," said Moyers. Some of the band's most memorable music of the year was "Mooreside March" and "Fire Dance." The percus- sionists were featured, and "Black Saddles" by Brian Youngblood, member of the band, was performed by the drum section. Big Purple gave a fall review for faculty and students in Cullen Auditorium. They marched indoors while performing selections from the 1982 football halftime shows. This was the second year for the review, which will become a tradition, said Whitwell. - Krirty Pendergmrr and Rafbel Rainwaler. . . , 5 1 S A . ' , --rfv Q' . - - in " K? ,.... .W .., . t. . me .

Blue Key The campus chapter of Blue Key national honor fraternity participated in two major activities this year, said Paul Han- cock, president. One of their activities was the breakfast that Blue Key members provided for alumni. The breakfast was scheduled during Lectureship and received a small turnout, said Nelson Coates, vice president. However, the fraternity plans to schedule another alumni breakfast next year, and members plan to advertise the event better. The club also sponsored a leadership workshop for all in- terested students. The purpose ofthe workshop was to pro- vide skills and ideas that helped people improve their leader- ship capabilities and see the importance of good leadership qualities, Hancock said. Speakers for the workshop were Dr. Gary D. McCaleb, vice president for university advancement, and Dr. Mike Lewis, associate professor of communication. McCaleb talked about the importance of student leadership at ACU, and Lewis discussed the practical aspects of leadership and how to lead effectively. Hancock said, "It CBlue Keyj honors not only academic achievement but leadership. The Blue Key on campus today is an extension of the old "A" Club on campus. The "A" Club was the first honor-service club, before social clubs, that had a rich heritage of serving the campus." The "A" Club was established on campus in 1917 by Dr. B.C. Morlan, professor of education, however, in 1958 the "A" Club became associated with Blue Key since the na- tional organization had a similar purpose. - Krifzy Perzdergmrr rr 1 Q, 5 , f aa HN l l , 4. !!: l c 3 y li .

Each semester members handled the processing of teacher evaluation questionnaires of the college and then turned those questionnaires over to the dean ofthe college. A scholarship and fund-raising for future College of Business students was undertaken by the council, said Brad Cheves, council member. The members also sponsored an interview and job- seeking seminar to help business students learn how to inter- view and where to look for a job. The Business Forum was also co-sponsored by the council, which helped find speakers for the forums, But the council didn't only serve the college students.

Choral members were active as secret prayer partners dur- ing the year. The program helped students learn to care about others and serve others without receiving any thanks. Students prayed for their partners and brought small gifts, cards or notes and left them on the piano before class. In the middle of the semester, prayer partners were revealed and surprised students got to meet someone they didn't know. The Concert Chorale enjoyed much more than perform- ing, the members grew to enjoy and appreciate each other, too. - Rarbe! Rainwater ,The Concert Chorale enjoyed one of the biggest member- ips in history with 84 participating in the year's activities. The highlight of the year for the Chorale was singing in e Grand Chorus at the Leonard Burford tribute luncheon lFebruary. Concert Chorale, A Cappella and His Singers fmbined to form the chorus under the direction of Milton illen, director of Concert Chorale and A Cappella. 'The group performed "Come Unto Me" by Leonard Bur- rd and "Grant Unto Me" by Johannes Brahms. The con- rt band accompanied the chorus as it performed "The Bat- 2 Hymn ofthe Republic." Concert Chorale did much of the "behind the scenes" eparation for the luncheon. Students worked almost ound-the-clock putting away chairs after Sing Song, set- ig up tables, decorating Moody Coliseum, serving the rests and cleaning up afterwards.

Cultural Excelle A fall fashion fair and investigation of economic and social issues pertaining to blacks were the highlights of 1982-83 for the Cultural Excellence Organization. CEO was an organization that promoted education and understanding among students from different cultural backgrounds. Regina Gilmore, senior from Abilene, said the fashion show in November featured ACU students modeling fall and winter fashions. The show was the first of its kind spon- sored by the organization. February was National Black Heritage Month, and CEO brought several speakers, films and black professionals to campus to promote black awareness.

Pullen .ova 'se co "During Lectureship, Homecoming and any special time when a large number of visitors are on the campus, one can see girls in white jackets with the large CSO on the front." The Campus Service Organization had not changed much since 1955 when this excerpt was written about the club. CSO was not only a way for women to serve, but the club was also a means of involvement. Some of the club's ac- tivities included accommodating large crowds during Homecoming, Lectureship and High School Day. They also assisted in the Students' Association elections. "CSO was special because it was not for us but for the school. It also made me feel good inside knowing that I've helped other people without getting something for it," said Sandy Mavrinac, president. Each semester a breakfast honored new members. The woman with the most service hours recorded at the end of this time also was acknowledged. Perhaps the only noticeable difference between the CSO membership of 1943 and the 1982-83 membership was the missing white jackets with large blue CSO letters on the front. The unselfish purpose and dedication of the women still remained. - Dem: Edwardy 1 Top: Rhonda Cabe works in the ticket booth during a service project.

Debate and Forensics "Communication effectiveness begins with a knowledge of how communication works," said joe Cardot, debate and forensics coach. The ACU forensic and debate teams showed how the knowledge of communication added to their communica- tion effectiveness, placing seventh in the nation during the spring. The teams proved their effectiveness by competing in seven tournaments during the 1982-83 school year and plac- ing first, second or third in all but one of those tournaments. The debate team placed first in the Southern Texas Inter- collegiate Forensic Association tournament, conducted at Trinity University. This tournament proved to be the stand- R. Goodman dard the teams would live up to throughout its competition. The debate team once again took high rankings by plac- ing second at the Central State University tournament. Prose competitors gained third place, while the dramatic com- petitors won fourth place in their competition. The spring semester began with a tournament at The University of Texas at Arlington with the debate team taking first place in San Marcos at the Texas Intercollegiate Foren- sic Association tournament. April 12 the forensic team began its trip to Estes Park, Colo., where the Pi Kappa Delta National competition was scheduled. "They had to be sharper conscientiously to do well," said Cardot. And sharp they were, The team returned home rank- ed seventh in the nation as a Superior Forensic Team. Five superior awards were given to students excelling in their competition. These awards were given to Randy Moody in discussion, Lory Moore in prose and dramatic in- terpretation,jeff Connor in debate and jim Orr in debate.

The Fly- ing Cats demonstrated their skills at High School Day as part of the events to entertain high school students. Zickefoose said the team had been asked to perform at halftime for basketball games in past years but did not get invited this year. He said he did not know why the team wasn't invited. "The team members were simply some students who were interested in gymnastics," Zickefoose said. The only re- quirements for membership were to show interest in the team by attending free-time workouts and to be able to do certain routines such as tumbling. Students had the option of performing on the rings, uneven bars, parallel bars or other individual routines, perfor- ming with a group in tumbling, or performing in both areas. A few team members entered the competition in the Texas Gymnastic Conference, which is for schools with no scholarships in gymnastics. They placed third overall in the state meet. - Cbarles L.

"Although we followed the same style overall as in past years, the group sang more contemporary choral ar- rangements rather than hymns," Spot said. The group's engagements included a summer tour to New Mexico, Arizona and California, with stops in the cities of Albuquerque, Phoenix, Flagstaff, Long Beach, San Francisco and Anaheim.

"We weren't a social club, but we had a lot ofthe benefits of social clubs," said Boyd. Mu Phi Epsilon members helped the music department by passing out programs and doing other chores when the department sponsored a program.

Cosby won first place, and Patti jones took third place. Cozby said Kappa Pi members submitted slides of their work to be eligible for the scholarship contest. Members of New Masters conducted a contest in order to select a logo for the club. Becky Troute, an art major from Springboro, Ohio, submitted the winning entry. A caricature booth was manned by club members during the Homecoming carnival in the mall. One of the club's biggest activities each year is the Christmas art sale. This year, instead of setting up their wares near the Virginia Shore Art Gallery, the members set up a booth in the Civic Center as a part of the WACU sale, The sale was not as successful as it had been in the past, Cozby said. In March, club members retreated to the Petrini Ranch for lunch, volleyball games and mountain climbing. Another picnic was conducted at Dr. Art Williams' studio late in April. There the club "varied the menu," Cozby said, serving barbecued beef and rattlesnake. - Tammy Fielder. 4,7 sw K J 14 ous ' ' 'W' M . .... . , .. ,,.. rrr. H A 3 W D U ' 0 .

It also was the newly chartered Greek club. Nu Sigma Nothing President Steve Austin, junior Bible from Abilene, said the club originated during the nring of 1982 in a Greek class while the students were udying verb endings. Austin said the first three endings on l2li0r re list were nu, sigma, and nothing, and "one of the udents said that sounded like the name of a club." So they arted one and named it appropriately. Austin said the purpose of Nu Sigma Nothing was to ad- znce the appreciation and study of Greek as the language fthe Old Testament. The main focus of the group was to udy the relationship and development between modern id Old Testament Greek. "We don't sit around and try to impress each other with how smart we are," Austin said. "It is just interesting to get together and compare what we have learned about Greek language and culture." Austin said the only requirement for being a member of Nu Sigma Nothing was the interest in studying the Greek language and its significance in the Old Testament. "I just want to emphasize how useful and interesting Greek is, and how practical it is when used in Bible study," said Austin. The club's main goal for 1983-84 was to establish a scholarship for a first-year Greek student. The club also hoped to have a social in the fall to encourage students to take interest in the Club. - Oscar Brown X..,,,,1' ' as . s . ..

Goodman Cine.-' V Omega Rho Alpha About 90 freshmen proved their proficiency in the English language and thus were initiated into Omega Rho Alpha, a national honorary society for freshman English students. Dr. Dale Priest, assistant professor of English and club sponsor, said "Omega Rho Alpha is more of an honorary group than a social club. It's a little sister to Sigma Tau Delta, the national English honor society." To be eligible for membership, a student has to test out of English 1311, make an A in that class or submit a creative writing sample to Priest, he said. "About 95 percent of our members come in by the first two ways." Because it is mainly an honor society, the club meets only about three times per year, Priest said. In the fall a meeting is conducted to initiate new members and elect officers. This year the club chose Mike Anderson, a biblical studies major from Richardson, presidentgjimmy Orr, finance major from Vernon, vice president, Liz Eraser, government major from Pampa, secretary, and Deidre Harris, a computer science ma- jor from Bakersfield, Calif., treasurer. In the spring, students who became eligible for the club by making an A in English 1311 during the fall, were in- itiated into the club. - Rarbe!

Only three new members were inducted into the organiz: tion this year, and Hoover said a part of the problem was tl lack of majors in the history department. "There hasn't been a large pool of students to draw fron in the department," he said. The three new members were Mike Lutrell, Bra Galloway and Danette Crowson.

The troupe also toured various parts of Texas, including Lubbock, Austin and Amarillo. First organized by a handful of students in the fall of 1981, Seekers chose their actors, not only for their acting abilities, but also for their love of God and of people. After perform- ing before members of the administration, the group was granted status as a student organization. The troupe's primary goal was to present Christian ideals applicable to everyday living. Through their skits they not only hoped to edify but to encourage the audience to ex- amine their lives. Friendships were perhaps the most special by-products of the group's efforts. Marc Cates, last year's organizer, said that "Seekers gave me a niche here at ACU." Friendship, fellowship and edification were just a few of the elements making Seekers of the Word special. Kim said, "It's one of the reasons I came back to ACU." - Dena Edwards Top: Kim Moses and Marc Cates look up scriptures during a performance. Lett: Roy Hill acts out a skit.

"The purpose of this club was to make students aware of job opportunities in communica- tion," said Mark Edge, club president. "The club wasn't just for communication majors because communication skills are involved in all aspects of business." The club sponsored a research paper writing contest to stimulate research and quality writing skills on the part of students, and cash prizes were awarded. In the future, the club hopes papers will be accepted by state and national conventions where students will read them. A career day was sponsored by the club to inform students of career opportunities. Ron Price, former com- munication professor at ACU, and Bob Barton, director of Abilene Community Theatre, spoke at the meetings. Dr, Carley Dodd and Dr. Charles Marler, communication pro- fessors, also spoke at the meeting about job opportunities. The club also sponsored a faculty-student softball game at Will Hair Park for the communication department, The game gave students and teachers a chance to get to know each other better outside of a classroom environment.

"We worked from an administrative angle. We set up rcruiting functions and alumni functions," said Beth Cox, tudent Foundation sponsor. This year's foundation followed the traditions of last ear's foundation with its involvement in the Homecoming arnival,juniorfSenior Day and High School Day. But this ear's foundation also created a few new activities. "We did some things this year that will be projects the Jundation can do every year,', said Elise Smith, a senior 'om Carbondale, Ill., and Student Foundation secretary. Smith said one of the events was the tri-college competi- on involving the selling of tickets to the double concert faturing The Cole Younger Band and Sass. The school that ad the best ticket sales won a free concert by Sass. ACU's tudent Foundation sold more tickets than Hardin-Simmons or McMurry. Another new activity was the selling of pie and coffee during Lectureship. "It was the biggest event the Student Foundation had this year," said Cox. PFM provided the pie and coffee, and Student Foundation members served it in the double gym of the Gibson P.E. Center. The Student Foundation worked with the ISCC represen- tatives from each social club in the planning of booths for this year's Homecoming carnival. Each club had to select an idea and then construct a booth that would go along with this year's "Old-Fashioned Homecoming" theme, said Howard. He said the Student Foundation was only responsible for the "Grubby Derby" event during'IuniorfSenior Day. Along with these projects, the members also worked with recruiting students and promoting ACU, said Cox. The members were given a district in Texas or one of the sur- rounding states. They went to cities in their district, spoke at schools and talked to students about ACU. - Pam Hamm H 1 Elise Smith,jon Howard,james Williams, sponsor Beth Cox, Lett: Helping with Gruby Derby, Kevin Bslir sends a contestant e cap.

Both resolu- tions were passed, allowing the SA to invest and earn interest from its funds, which had been handled by the university business office and to give the SA free use of school facilities. The SA had earned 3350 from the first resolution and saved 31,100 from the second by the end of the fall semester. The spiritual life theme for the fall semester was "Moving Toward Wholenessf' Speakers included Max Lucado and Stanley Shipp. "Walking in the Light" was the spring semester theme, which coincided with the 1983 Lectureship theme. The SA sponsored many student and community events, inclduing Fish Camp for the fourth year. Paul Hancock, second-year director, said, "This year Fish Camp went much smoother, due to a hard working staff and my experience from the previous year. I think the freshmen got what they needed more than in past years." Rick Atchley, minister at Southern Hills Church of Christ spoke to the freshmen about adjusting to the changes they were making. Hammer the javelinas weekend was co-sponsored by the Aggie Club in conjunction with the ACU Wildcats vs. the A8aIjavelinas football game. The weekend activities includ- ed a barbecue and games at Allen Farm, a car-decorating contest, a tailgate party at Shotwell Stadium and a five- kilometer road race. Special activities coordinator Shelli Dew said, "We had a great turnout, and the weekend proved to be a big spirit booster." The most successful money-making events for the ye were the movies. Grossing more than 31000, the SA brougi current films such as "Taps" and "Rocky II" as well 1 classics such as "A Tale of Two Cities" and "Camelot" A. mission was 351, lower than in previous years. Sadie Hawkins succeeded once again in reversing tl dating roles when the women escorted the men to an ol. fashioned box social, the movie "Song of the South" and bonfire and marshmallow roasting, The Community Service Committee, a subcommittee 4 the Spiritual Life Committee, began several new projec such as "Adopt a Grandparentn and singing at area re homes on Thursday evenings. The SA also celebrated the 102nd birthday of Beulah Ca: Arvin, the oldest living ACU alumnus. Nelson Coates, senir from Abilene, dedicated an original poem to her an presented her with a plaque. Christmas for Children activities included students takin underprivileged children in the community to movies, tl' zoo and a Christmas party. The children were delighted wit the gifts at the party and most of all the love and attenti the students gave them. A SASS benefit concert was giv and the proceeds were used to establish a Christmas fr Children scolarship fund. The 1982-83 Students' Association succeeded in providir many different and interesting activities in which tl students could be involved. - Rachel Rainwater an . l'T'l8I1 R.

W Club "We often take W Club for granted," said Terry See, club president and senior elementary education major from Abilene. Some women join to put it on their resumes, she said, but "we want it to mean more to the girls." W Club participated in several fund-raising activities to raise money for a scholarship. The scholarship amount was determined by the money raised during the year, See said. The organization annually awards a scholarship to a woman with at least junior standing and a 3.0 grade point average. Department heads nominated women, and the club officers made the final selection, said See. W Club sold carnations and roses in the fall and on Valentine's Day, See said. "The Birds" also was shown in the fall to add money to the scholarship fund. Annual teas were another W Club activity. The teas, at Homecoming and Lectureship, allowed present members to meet past club members. At these events some past members contributed to the scholarship fund, See said. - Tammy Dahlof Top: Terry See talks about e club proiect during s meeting.

"Service projects are an important part of our club, and we try to do as many as we can each semester," Oscar said. One of the projects the club was involved in this year was a picnic to Nelson Park with some patients from the West Texas Rehabilitation Center. "This was a joint project with the Kojies and was a valuable experience for everyone that went." Oscar said. Another service project the club was involved with was a Christmas party for patients at the Care Inn. The Siggies helped in this project that included Santa Claus passing out fruit-filled stockings to all the patients. "This was one of my favorite projects because it meant so much to the elderly patients," Oscar said. "I would like to think that people would do the same for me ifl were in a rest home." The men also sang with the women of Ko jo Kai to the patients of Bur-Mont Nursing Center on Easter Sunday, Oscar said. "We do a lot of service projects, but that is not the main function of Centurion," Oscar said. "We do a lot of things with just us so that we can get to know each other better." he said. Intramurals were vital to club. Oscar said, and Centurion tried to enter as many events and teams as possible so that everyone who wanted to could be involved. "Since the club is only three years old Homecoming is not nearly as important to us as it is to other clubs," Oscar said. "I look forward to the day when we will have a room full oi exesf' The Homecoming father-son breakfast was at the Starlite Inn. A turkey shoot was the theme for the club's booth at the Student Foundation Carnival. "We didn't make any money off of it, but it was fun to do," Oscar said. Spring found the club geared up for Sing Song. "Wher we first came up with the idea of tourists we weren't too ex cited about it, especially after the costumes jonathan Gibbi and Rick Flood picked out," Oscar said. "But once we gow into the song our excitement grew." "We were kind of disappointed that we didn't get a voca award, but we were pleased to get second place in the costume competition," Oscar said. A different kind of project the club did in the spring wa: a 'lfun night" at the YMCA with the men of Prater Sodalis Oscar said the idea was to get to know members of anothe: club on a more casual basis. Like other clubs, socials are important to Centurion aa well. The fall grub was a Halloween party and hay ride whil the spring grub was a "sweat" theme where everyone wot sweats. The Christmas social was at the Abilene Woman! Club and the spring social was an "Old-Fashioned Social' theme in historic Granbury. "We had a picnic by a lake Saturday afternoon, then din ner that night, followed by a musical production at the Granbury Opera House," Oscar said. "It was one of the fun nest socials I've ever been to." -jonathan Gibb: Centurion Top lell: Randy Daugherty makes a run lor it during an intramural football game.

The Frats participated in the Abilene Christian lilenientary School "Sportstacular" with the women of Zeta Rho Alpha. "Sportstacular" was the ACES annual student fund-raiser consisting of a day of track and field events. The two cluhs were responsible for organizing the events and passing out the awards as well.

We won intrarnurals, vocals in Sing Song, and we're proud of our stu- dent leaders," said Kevin Blair, senior from Fort Worth and president of the club. The men of Galaxy have had a long tradition of winning in both Sing Song and intramurals, but "winning isn't everything," Kevin said. "We play upon the emotions of winning. Like in Sing Song we have some inspirational speeches before we go out on stage. But usually the guys in club are achievers anyway, and they strive for excellence in whatever they attempt." RR Goodman Homecoming was a busy time for the club, even though did not participate in the Student Foundation carrriv "because the pledges were busy on another project and d not have time for the carnival," Kevin said. The Homecoming breakfast was at the Sheraton Inn ar was attended by more than 200 past and present members. The fall Nova social was a movie star theme, and tl spring Nova social was a pajama party. Highlight of the pajama party was the pie fight at the er ofthe grub, Kevin said. "There were pies being thrown everywhere and everyone. It was definitely the funnest grub I ever went to he said. The spring social was in early April at the America: Hotel in downtown Fort Worth. Friday night was the form dinner, and Saturday night was informal and include barbecue and a private concert with singer Gene Cotton the Owens Ranch near Fort Worth. Although the club was not involved in any service pri jects it placed a big emphasis on its relationship with sist club Kojo Kai. "We were more supportive of them and tried to ha' more functions with them," Kevin said. "We traded pledg one night during clubg we got behind each other during Sir Song and just tried to get closer to them," he said. "Patience is a great virtue," Kevin said. "You have to e pect people to complain about things, but you just have I keep going. It's really tough to be a leader among your pee . . . That's probably the greatest thing I learned." And what will Kevin remember most about Galaxj "Having 80 best friends," he said. -jonathan Gibbs ei ir k...V it ,sweep .Q jZ.,. M..

This was our 15th year, and we looked back at why the club was started in order to focus on where we're going," said Kregg Conder, junior from Abilene and president of Kinsmen. "Club was originally started for a group of guys to get together to have fun while maintaining Christ as the center," Kregg said. In looking back at the years, the officers, and club in general. made a rededication to the original purpose, Kregg said. "We tried to do some things that had been done in the past to achieve unity such as the San Angelo football relay and club night at the movie," Kregg said. The football relay was an unusual event that involved members of the club running with the game ball for a minimum of a mile each and then handing it to the next man who ran it to the next, with the handoffs continuing the 90 miles to San Angelo for the ACU-Angelo State game. Kregg said that movie night was where the guys in club would get together to go see a movie a couple of times a month. "We also had a Phi Slammajamma patty to root Houston on even though it didn't help them much," Kregg said, "and we continued our tradition of kilt parties for the guys that got engaged. Basically we just tried to do more things together." One project the club was involved in once a month dur- ing the spring semester was doing the Sunday services at the Truby Church of Christ near Anson, The men did everythin from the opening prayer, serving communion, leading sing ing and teaching class to preaching both Sunday service: Kregg said. L'The officers decided that we wanted to do project like this so we looked for a place to do it," he said. Kinsmen had a closeness about it that was unique ani refreshing. "One of the guys this semester had a car acciden and as soon as the other guys found out about it they wer up at the hospital at one in the morning to sit and wait, Kregg said. "It's important to me to know that if I ever ge in trouble the club will be there to support me." Kregg said although the club did not win an award ii Sing Song this year, it was a personal victory. "I was overly proud of our performance because we wen one of the smallest groups there and by Saturday night w- were performing a good show. A lot of old members woult come backstage and support us or wish us luck, and that wa a neat feeling," he said. The annual spring social was in Granbury atjohn and jan na Dutys Carmichael Inn. The "Old South" theme was com plete with dates in hooped dresses and invitations hand delivered by men on horseback. Kregg said that being president was work but "well wortl it. It teaches you responsibility, and I'm looking forward tc another term next year because the people in club are wha' make it worthwhile." And, he said, "not just the people ir Kinsmen - I have friends in other clubs that make it fun too." --jonathan Gibbs Kimmen Top left: A hooded Sibling tries lo feed chocolate lo a blindfolded Alpha during Bid Night.

The tatement referred to the reschartering of Phi Delta Psi, the lub that has been kicked off of campus twice for isciplinary reasons. Mark Hoover, senior and vice president ofthe club, said he club was chartered as Phi Omega Chi in the '30s or 3405. Phi Omega was kicked off campus in 1949 and then re- 3hartered in the spring of 1951 as Phi Delta Psi, he said. The club went strong for more than 20 years before being licked off again in 1973, Mark said. Finally, it was re- hartered again in the spring of 1982 with West Soward as nresident. Mark said the reasons for re-chartering Phi Delts rather han starting fresh were several: "Some alumni were pushing or the club to re-charter, plus the basic ideals of the club vere already established in the constitution," Mark said a ew changes were made in the constitution and a few new :fficers were added, 'ibut the main difference is in us." "Our biggest problem has been overcoming the past eputation ofthe club," Mark said. "Our main purpose this 'ear was to establish some good PR for Phi Delts so 'veryone would know that this is not the same club it used 0 be." Mark said that club alumni have been a big support in getting the club started again, and he gave much of the :redit to the club sponsor, Mike Bohannan. "He has been a tremendous help to us in telling us about row the club used to be and what to do," Mark said. "We lidn't really know what to expect when we started, but hings have gone real well." The club had more than 40 members, and that was more than the original club had at any point, Mark said. He said that they hope to remain small to keep the unity it has. Socials and service projects would be a part of Phi Delts, Mark said, but this year they were so busy getting reorganiz- ed that they didn't have time for those things. The men did manage to have a fall grub with a "Psycho" theme, he said. Sing Song brought problems for the club, and they were asked to change some of their lyrics just two days before dress rehearsal. Mark said the guys were upset by the changes especially since the lyrics had ben submitted for ap- proval weeks in advance. The club made the changes and went on to perform. The club had to overcome some major obstacles during the year, Mark said, and still more were to come. "We want people to respect us, and we're going to do our best to work hard to keep a good image," he said. "lt may be a long road or a short road, but we'll get there." -jonathan Gibbs fr' ii . Fi.

"We went into Sing Song still very bitter from being kick- d out the year before. but we decided to have fun with it nywayf' Doug said. "The first night on stage. in front ofthe ther groups, we were all so nervousg we didn't want to rake any mistakes that would cause us to get kicked out gain." "After our show at dress rehearsal we were told that we rere great, but we wouldn't win because the judges go for he more serious attempts in the competition," Doug said. "On Friday night when we were announced winners in the iriginality division, there couldn't have been a happier group rf guys anywhere. It was a real victory for Trojans. l've never een an audience respond the way they responded to us." Trojans were a diverse group of guys, Doug said. and heir main purpose was to have a good time with whatever hey were involved in. Doug said the uniqueness of the club vas in the fellowship and the fact that the guys were ledicated to one purpose. "Whatever that purpose is at the ime . . . we always stick together," Doug said. Trojans were very close to winning the intramural cham- mionship this year, and in fact, lost to Galaxy by only 30 xoints. They won the waterball competition for the second 'ear in a row and also won the intramural track meet, rodeo, eam racquetball and golf. Besides winning these team :vents, club members won several individual awards in ten- iis, racquetball and the intramural bicycle race. An annual service project for the club was serving in the a night off, plus the students have a good time too," he said. The club had its Homecoming breakfast at Old Abilene Town with more than 100 members and alumni attending. Doug said the fall grub was a Halloween theme at Old Abilene Town, and the spring grub was at the Perini ranch in Buffalo Gap. The Christmas social was at the Abilene Club on top of Abilene National Bank, and the spring social was an informal picnic at a ranch near town, Doug said. Doug said the club had a "very good group of officers this year," and he praised club sponsor Dean Low for his dedication to the club. "He taught us how to have fun without letting club control your life." -jjorzarlmn Gibb: ff! Trojans Top: Jay Cheatham tries to find running room during a Troian football game.

'hat image stayed with the club through 1980, But Phil Boone, 1982-83 president, pledged that year, and e said since then the club's image "had begun to make a radual change." The club's old image was one reason that Sub T was lamed for incidents in which members say they had no in- olvement. For example, one year a dead cow was dumped ito GATA Fountain and people thought Sub T members ad something to do with it. And when commodes were put in top of the Don H. Morris Center, people thought "Sub- ers did it." ff .ar-""' "We were sick and tired of being blamed for stuff we didn't do," Boone said. The club members always have thought of themselves as just a bunch of "good ol' boys" having fun. "We didn't want to lose that," Boone said. "No matter what we did or where we went we just enjoyed having fun." That attitude, in past years, contributed to the image of some Sub T members as being "partiers." But members thought the idea that they were "partiers" was a misconcep- tion. They just wanted to have a good time, Boone said. Members knew the change in the club's image would be a slow process, but Boone stressed that Sub T didn't change the kind of guys it let in club. "We just didn't let in guys who didn't care." The change Sub T was making also included restoring lost traditions. jay Friddell, junior from Hermitage, Tenn., said, "We started getting back to the old traditions like steak fries and gob bottles." Friddell also said that "for a few years it seemed the at- titude and the purpose of the club was lost and the meaning of being a Subber changed." The tradition of Subbers being student leaders may have been lost for a time, but that tradi. tion also began to return as Subbers took leadership posi- tions in student government and other special organizations. Sub T-16 There's little doubt the club maintained their "good ol' , boy" image during the school year, but the members did j L make some progress in getting rid of the part of the image j l I V they believed didn't belong there.

But the members also had to be involved with the pledges through visits. It was odd how members changed from the time they had encouraged would-be cluhbers to pledge their clubs. When prospects became pledges, members treated them so badly. Did you ever see a womens pledge on Bid Night who looked fit to bring home to mother? Even though members said, 'lThey're the worst pledge class I . . e- every pledge class heard that one -- they still expected pledges to ask for visits. Some members had a heart, or so they said, and simply signed the whimpering pledges' visit sheets to get them out of a bind. But they always said. "Now remember, you owe me a visit." "Right," said the pledge and scurried off never to be heard from again. Now who was more naive, the pledge or the member? -- Charles I.. give' .f E it it .. . ii ,mm r .... . Q1-:if.t..

It was hard, but we're a better club for it," said Liz ane, president of DT's. i'Every club on campus has a stereotype," Liz said, "and ie people that aren't in a social club see each club as its ereotypef' "DT's are known as athletes and partiers, and I'rn sure we ave our share of both, but we also have a lot of girls that on't fit that stereotype," Liz said. The DT's had been plagued with a bad reputation, Liz rid, and this year the women changed that image. "Our theme this year has been 'something differentj and e've tried to work hard on the good parts of our club, to if improve our image," Liz said. "But," Liz said, "we worked on our inward image before we started working on our outward image," Liz said the first thing they wanted to do was to get more involved in school related functions such as Christmas for Children. The club sponsored a photo booth during Sadie Hawkins week and helped sponsor a concert with Galaxy. The proceeds went to Christmas for Children. Sing Song really helped to draw the women closer together, Liz said. "Everybody worked hard, and it didn't matter how we looked to anybody else because we were working on something more important than winning." "I was real proud of our performance." Liz said. "I wasn't able to participate because of a recent surgery so I was more objective about the show than most people who were in- volved in it. We looked so much better this year than in years past. Sure we made mistakes, but overall it was a fan- tastic performance, and we won second place in the costume competition." Liz said that although the club had grown in size the women still stressed quality more than large numbers. The club had 26 pledges this year, The club had a fall and a spring grub as well as a Christmas social at the Abilene Womans Club and a spring social at Fairway Oaks with jazmine as entertainment. The club's Homecoming breakfast was at the Abilene Club, and more than 300 alumnae attended, Liz said. Overall, Liz said she was pleased with the year and that she was glad to be president.

Something "This year was the funnest year I ever had in a club," said Dita Keese, president of GATA. "We tried to make GATA a club of opportunities for all the girls. We had all kinds of different events throughout the year so everyone could get involved," Dita said. "We had so many girls want to pledge this year that we even created a new officer to be in charge of rushes." Fall was busy for GATA as it was for all clubs. More than 600 alumnae attended the Homecoming breakfast at the Fairway Oaks Pavillion. Four women represented GATA on the Homecoming Court: Lana Hall, Robin Igo,joa Pyle and Dita. Another fall proiect for the club was the garden in front of the Administration Building. The garden was in memory of Carolyn Daniels, who died of cancer in 1982. Mrs. Daniels was a GATA sponsor for more than Z0 years, Dita said, and the club wanted to do something special for her. it Monster Mash" was the theme for the fall grub, Dita AT said. "G A s are so much fun because you never 11 for everyone know what will happen at them." Spring found GATA preparing for Sing Song, an event that had become almost sacred to the club. The women began preparing early in the semester and spent hours and hours each day practicing to produce their show. GATA didnt win this year, but they got something more out of it. Dita said. "Sing Song was fun," Dita said. "We came from winning the year before to losing this year, but that didn't matter because we had a blast doing it," she said. "Even though we didnt win a trophy we won a lot more than that: friendship, unity and the joy of watching 100 girls give 100 percent for one common goal," she said. The spring grub was a Hawaiian theme complete with a beach and an old "Gidget Goes Hawaiian" film. San An- tonio was the site for the spring social at the Hilton Inn. One event Dita said she would always remember was the night she was kidnapped by the pledges, handcuffed and blindfolded, and held for ransom. "They took me riding forever and were holding me for ransom that all their punishments would be dropped," Dita said. "Then they handcuffed me to the lamps in front of Sherrod on North 10th. I yelled loud enough, and Phil Boone and Charlie Self heard me. After they quit laughing they got a saw and cut me loose from the lamp, but it was much later before I got the handcuffs off." . "Club for me, was a chance to be around a bunch of girls C I wouldn't have known otherwise," Dita said. "It gave me E the chance to see girls grow socially and spiritually." e 8 jonathan Gibbs cs FRONT ROW: Sally Gary, Lisa McVey, Debbie Siddens, Laura William . i . s' is j I ii ei A p s, Cindy Holley, judy Arnot, Laurie Wolford, CaraSue Miller.

With 14 pledges in the fall and 21 in the spring, it was clear that the club was prepared to stay. Vicki Allen, senior and president of the club, said that em- phasis this year was on "getting more good members to maintain the size of club." She said that the club would lose about 15 charter members and the new members were very important. But Vicki was confident that Kadies would con- tinue to grow. if great growth "We're still making traditions. Each pledge class brings innovative ideas. We had a strong base of charter member and were building on top of that," she said. An annual service project ofthe Kadies was their trip i the Medina Childrens home for a weekend. In early April least 20 of the club members went to devote a weekend 1 service and love to the girls there, said Vicki. "We work with the girls during the day helping them wi' their chores, playing games and then having a devotional night. It's a neat experience because the girls just open up i us. The weekend not only helps them but helps us, too." X V . , The pledges were also involved in individual service pri Qs. i g , J h J A jects. Each woman was required to do a certain number i ,fa ia . r r it ... 1 N i . - . if g W H Q H ggfg Xa A V service hours, and it was up to them to decide what kind 4 " i f v f H service to do.

Success smells sweet "Success is the one word that would describe Ko glo Kai tis year," said Michelle Batson, senior from Austin and resident of the club. The "Little CLub of Women" had 50 pledges this year, a Homecoming breakfast with more than 250 past and present iembers and a three-award sweep in Sing Song. Homecoming found the Kojies working in their "Kojie lorner" booth at the Student Foundation Carnival. The women served sasparilla and hot apple cider to visitors of the ooth. The annual mother-daughter tea was in Gardner arlor, and the Homecoming breakfast was at Briarstone danor. "It was wonderful seeing old friendships reunited and get- ting acquainted once again," Michelle said of Homecoming. Michelle and vice president Polly Robinson, senior from Brady, were members of the 1982 Homecoming Queen Court. Success followed the Kojies in their service projects as well. The club made Christmas stockings for children in the hospital and had a party for the children. A joint service project with the men of Centurion found the two clubs taking some patients from the West Texas Rehabilitation Center to Nelson Park for a picnic and games. Another joint project with Centurion was singing at Bur- Mont Nursing Center on Easter. "I felt just as good about singing to them as they clid listening," Michelle said. "Out of all the service projects we did, that was my favorite one because they needed to know that someone cared about them at Easter," she said. The biggest success for the Kojies, said Michelle, was their victory in Sing Song. Dressed as Crest toothpaste tubes, carrying toothbrushes and singing words such as, "Doctor, Doctor give him the news, he's got a bad case of cavity blues," the club took the heart of the audiences and left them laughing. P? . Fl. Goodman Under the direction of Daphren Corbin, junior from Phoenix, Ariz., the club took first place in each division: originality, voice and costume. This was the first time the Kojies had won all three divisions, Daphren said. "Not really one event will stand out in my mind when I look back at club," Michelle said, "but I will always remember the fun and good times. When I look back, the friendships will stand out and certain individuals will always be a part of my mind." -jonathan Gibby 3 X ,.,3,L,,,g ,.

A profiting ex "Whenever you get a group of Christian girls together, everyone profits from the experience, and the sum of the whole is greater than the inputs of each individual," said Roberta Sickles, president of Siggies. Y This year the women were defeated in the overall in- tramural championship by the women of Kappa Dalian Shri. "We were in first place all year long, but lost in the last week. Intramurals can tie a club together more than anything else," Roberta said. Ult brings people closer together. Whether you win or lose it's still a good time for those who participate." "Sure we were upset by the loss, but we try not to place too much emphasis on the winning aspects," Roberta said. The fall semester went extremely well for the club, Rober- ta said. "We took a lot of real good pledges. Our sophomore girls added excitement to club and generated enthusiasm to the other girls." Homecoming was a highlight ofthe year for the club. It was represented on the Homecoming Court by four members, and senior Beth Owens, a Siggie, was crowned Homecoming Queen. The Siggie booth at the Student Foundation Carnival won first prize. The booth, a Sweet Shop, included homemade gingerbread men, lollipops, big chocolate chip cookies and carameled apples, Roberta said. The Homecoming breakfast was at the Kiva Inn with nearly 400 past and present members attending. "Overall Homecoming was a big success," she said.

Sigma Theta Chi f 295 Fl. Goodman A spirit for tr in Zeta Rho Alpha is a club of "people who keep trying. Everyone has lots of spirit," said Teresa Stewart, senior from Austin and club president. Brenda Hatchett, senior from Waco and club vice presi- dent, characterized Zeta as a group of women "who like to get together and have a good time and laugh." But along with the laughter and fun came the serious moments. When club member Traci Mills, sophomore from Dallas, was in a car accident in the spring, the club was drawn closer together, said Teresa. Traci's accident "shook everybody up and made us realize how special each member is," she said. While Traci was in the' hospital, club members kept in close contact with the hospital. They took her a care package filled with cards, letters and goodies, Teresa said. The women also decided to give their costume rebate money from Sing Song to Traci's family to use as they needed. The club had its mother-daughter Homecoming breakfast at the Holiday Inn". Their booth at the Student Foundation Carnival was a picture booth with a saloon girl and a handling each ofthe races and giving out the awards. Don . Garrett, senior from Midland, said the day was "good for th little kids and the big kids." The club's Christmas social was at the Kiva Inn with Mexican theme, said Teresa. "We had pinata's and broke those, and Santa Claw brought sombreros filled with goodies for our dates," sh Said. "We also had a scavenger hunt through town. We wer divided into groups and each group was in a car. Clues wer placed all over town, and when you picked up one clue it le you to the next. lt was alot offunf' Rhonda Robinson, sophomore from Albuquerque, N.M said she pledged Zeta because she had more opportunitiestl give because the club was small. Teresa said being in a club gave girls a chance to "mei people in other majors and walks of life." She said this wa important at a larger school where there were so many pet ple to meet. - Tammy Dabfofanrljonatlzwan Gibbs Top: A group of decorated Alpha get crazy on Bid Night.

Another activity that club members participated in was the annual "Sportstacular," a fund-raising event for Abilene Christian Elementary School.

Teague. Of the many changes implemented, Teague said his most satisfying accomplishment was the establishment of visiting committees. The committees, composed of various ACU alumni and members of the community, visited four departments during the year. Six additional departments were to be visited dur- ing the next year. Each visiting committee was assigned a department to meet with, evaluate and advise. "The establishment of visiting committees," Teague said, "is the single most effective way to stay current in academic thrust." A reorganization of major administrative tasks highlighted the year, said Teague. He decided to reorganize his administrative staff to place each individual where he was most effective. One major change in the staff was the appointment of Dr. Gary D. McCaleb as vice president of student services. Teague said this change took place because of Garvin Beauchamp's retirement announcement. "McCaleb is unusually gifted in student matters, and I wanted to give him the opportunity to counsel and serve in a different capacity," said Teague. McCaleb also was in charge of the visiting committees. His additional duties gave him a wider scope of student con- tact, said Teague, This enhanced the university's long-range goals, which Teague defined as "sharpening our perception of capabilities and future service . . . also, to expand our in- fluence to increase enrollment and to enhance academic in- tegrity and Christian commitment." Along with changes in administrative policy, Teague substantially redefined the roles of department heads. In the past, heads of departments have had very little control over their departments, the president said. They now have more counseling responsibility with other faculty members and in- creased budget and salary responsibilities. The department head should know more about depart- mental financial resources and have more input on raises than in the past, said Teague. Raises used to be computed mathematically and each faculty member received an equal raise. However, department heads now will delegate money for raises to those teachers who deserve it, Teague said. Teague was directly or indirectly involved in many of the changes on the campus. In many situations, Teague said, "I have been the initiator. However, in other situations I have merely been the catalyst." - Kelh Tolron Top: President William J. Teague.

Bottom: ffice of Special Services The office of special services was created early in the spr- ing semester when President Williamj. Teague announced a reorganization of several of the vice presidential and other administrative offices. Garvin Beauchamp, who had served for 27 years as vice president for student services, was named vice president for the new division. The areas included in the special services division were athletics, publicity, public relations, university advancement services and special projects for the office of the president. Beauchamp also was to handle the 1983 Business Aid cam- paign, a fund-raising effort by Abilene businesses to benefit the three institutions of higher education in the city. One new position included in Beauchamp's division was that of campus hostess. Dewby Ray, who had served for many years as director of on-campus alumni activities, was selected as the campus hostess. Her responsibilities included making students, parents and campus guests feel comfor- table and more at home on the campus. Another new position in the division was that of research director for the development office. Suzanne Allmon, who had been secretary to Dr. Gary D. McCaleb, vice president and dean of campus life, was selected to fill the position, ef- fectivejuly 1. as .ss. ..,........--mmf ..-f..--Q-on-null' fu. .

They also could have ontacted the campus life division for a multitude of other hings relating to their student life - everything, that is, ex- ept academics. The way in which the campus life division came to be uch a clearinghouse for student life was through an ad- riinistrative change early in the spring semester. Dr. Gary D. vicCaleb assumed the duties as vice president and dean of ampus life when he took over for Garvin V. Beauchamp in campus reorganization that changed several campus divi- B ' 1 40 Jw- X, XX . ,,-1,,,..-nf J- R R. Goodman sions. Beauchamp moved into the position of vice president for special services in the change, The campus life division included personnel to handle a students needs from the time he was first contacted as a pro- spective student to the time he became an alumnus. Among the areas of speciality needed to meet those needs was the university outreach office, under the direction of Bob Gomez. University outreach handled student recruiting and contacted prospective students from high schools, junior colleges and senior colleges concerning work at ACU at the undergraduate and graduate levels. One major concern for students was financial aid, and Gene Linder directed that office in the campus life division. After the student had made a decision to attend ACU, his needs were handled by the admissions and placement office, which was directed by Clint Howeth, also the counselor and adviser for all foreign students who attended ACU. His of- fice also worked with helping students find interviews for jobs as they neared graduation. Other offices included in the campus life division under the reorganization plan were housing, student services, which included the deans of students, the Campus Police Depart- ment, and the nurse. Among the areas included in the division to meet the needs of the student who became an alumnus were the development office and the Alumni Association. Although the campus life division covered a broad spec- trum, McCaleb said its basic theme was simple: to take care of the student. "We all worked together in order to achieve that common goal," he said. - Phillip Dutton it 'K IH div Lett: Bob Gomez and Eva Stalls talk during registration.

Reorganization of the administrative offices implemented changes in the office of finance, with one major change be- ing that vice president Bill Hilton's division acquired Bob Montgomery. Montgomery, assistant vice president for finance, over personnel and the word processing center and chairman ofthe safety committee. During the reorganization communication services was added to Hilton's division and was set up as an auxiliary enterprise. Hilton said the major benefit of the reorganization was the repositioning of Dr. Gary D. McCaleb who moved into the position of vice president for campus life to be directly involved with students. Hilton said the reorganization also gave President William j. Teague more time to concentrate on fund-raising activities for the university and have more exposure with the univer- sity's constituents. WHS WHS Hilton completed a term with the Abilene City Council ii April and said that he would not run again because the jol was very time consuming. He also said that he believed othe people needed the opportunity to serve on the City Council The vice president said he enjoyed serving on the counci and that he thought his service was good for ACU. Part of Hilton's time was spent working on the F. C Masten estate, which was part of the university's endow ment. The estate included 19 gas wells, 97 oil wells ann 95,000 acres of ranchland in Oldham and Cochran countie awarded. Hilton said the Masten estate will benefit expan sion of the university but that the school had not realizet profit from the estate yet. The major duty of the vice president for finance was tc allocate the university's operating funds, which were ac quired from earnings on endowments, tuition and fees, aux iliary enterprises, gifts, and educational activities. - Kell Toliofz ffice of Academics Planning new school programs was the major function of e academic division, said Dr. C. G. Gray, vice president for ademic affairs and dean of the university. Dr. Gray said the planning of a learning center had been a jor project and would continue to be important during 1983-84 school year. The learning center concept was recommended for the iiversity by a committee and was designed to assist idents with class work. The learning center also would ovide better advising information for the faculty, Gray id. Assistance for students would focus on supplementing eir education, The learning center would provide students th the opportunity to gain additional insight into their osen professions and to learn outside of the classroom. The center also would be involved in tutoring students ho were having difficulty in the classroom. Dr. Gray said three people had been trained to work in e learning center. Aubrey Green, associate professor of ..- I , 2 4. Za . English, was assigned as chairman of the learning center committee. Others trained to work in the center were Ken- neth Roach, director of libraries and instructional media, and Martha Merrell, a part-time instructor for the university. More faculty members eventually would be trained to work in the learning center, Gray said. Planning of educational requirement programs also oc- cupied a lot ofthe academic division's time, Gray said. Upon implementation of the requirements system, incoming freshmen had to complete their basics before they were allowed to take courses in their majors. Dr. Gray said that system always had been the academic design of the universi- ty, but that it had not been enforced properly. Dr. Gray and his staff also were involved in devising the five-year plan for the university that was designed to provide better planning on all levels in the academic division. The plan, said Gray, involved compiling all departmental five- year plans into a plan that would best handle the needs of the university. - Kalb Tolion. RONT ROW: Kenneth Roach, C. G.

Throughout the 77-year history of Abilene Christian, one group had remained firm in its goals for the university. The Board of Trustees. a 69-member organization, was commit- ted in 1982-83 to ensuring the quality education that had established ACU as a prominent institution of higher learning. "Our interests were to serve the needs of the students," said Ray McGlothlin jr., chairman of the board since 1974. "We achieved our business through selecting a sensitive ad- ministration, providing a sound religious and financial base, and sustaining a sound relationship with the public and other institutions." The board was basically a policy-making body with responsibility to the endowment funds and the allocation of gifts to the college. "We didn't handle the day-to-day opera- tions ofthe college," McGlothlin said. "But any major move - like tuition increases, the budget, salary levels - was reviewed by the board. 1983 was a landmark year for decisions involving tuition O at ACU. For the first time in several years the board decid not to raise tuition. "There was a prevailing sentiment on t board to hold the line on tuition, gear some discipline spending and hold down the burden on the studen' McGlothlin said. Although 1983 was not a year marked by major crises grandiose accomplishments, the chairman said the tuitii decision and the beginning of the Margaret and Herm Brown Library expansion were major decisions. Some changes in membership occurred, as four nc members were added to the Board of Trustees and two we named to the National Board. Bill Waugh of Dallas, Stanley Lockhart of Houston, O. Weber of Beaumont, and Don Conder of Lubbock we selected to the Board. Dr. Ira Hill of Locust, NJ., and Rall Harvey, of Oklahoma City, Okla., were named to the r tional group. The Board was saddened at the death of Willard Pair who McGlothlin had succeeded as chairman. Paine was long-standing member of the board from Lubbock. He h been selected to the Board in the mid-19505. B Sherrod and B. Collins were honored at the 19 Recognition Dinner as having served ACU as Boa members for 50 years. McGlothlin said the Board was a self-perpetuating gro and that one key function to maintaining a successful uz was electing new members to replace retiring members. "Electing men whose religious ideals matched those the history of the Board was very important," the chairm said. "Our board was remarkably united, if you have select the right individuals, then when a crisis or a major decisii arises, you can handle the problems well." The Board worked closely with the administration guiding the university in its high ideals. The sentiment of t Board was that the relationship it had with the current a ministration was very strong. "We had an excellent relationship, and when you di with fine Christian people the ability to get along is higl McGlothlin said. - Phillip Dunon. s..:. i's.e's S he Ilr ..

Board of Trustees X 307 Business Administration pgrading with computers A new computer system, donated largely by Texas In- struments, upgraded the quality of the College of Business. The system, consisting of twin TI 990 computers Cmodel 12f26l and 18 terminals for each computer, was used primari- ly by business students majoring in data processing, All business majors, however, were exposed to the com- puter system through the required introduction to Data Pro- cessing course. Faculty members also had access to the com- puters for faculty research and other administrative purposes. The computer, one of the best classroom computers available, was equipped with an electronic projector, which allowed the instructor to project what was on the terminal screen to a large screen for the entire class. That feature was a benefit to class explanation and example. Dr. Charles Small, who taught data processing, said stu- dent reaction to the computer had been mixed, but were mostly positive. Many students were frustrated by the new learning process and advanced computer technology, he said. The new system helped students become computer IFES? . .4 QR 593 PE- - I 3 JE fi. gf , 'A 5' 3 is sr Q e 1 X A' ff as ee as We 'jg . Qs Q, Q eg 5,5 7? -. .

ACU's College of Business offered students an opportuni- ty to be deeply involved in the college's activities througl the Business Administration Council. Approximately 35 students were members of the B.A Council, which provided office aid to faculty members, ser- vices such as administering teacher evaluations, and public relations for the college. The B.A. Council also benefitted students by producing the BA Council News, a monthly publication sponsored by the College of Business Administration. The newsletter, prepared by council members, kepi business majors up to date on business societies and profes- sional activities and opportunities, Members of the council were selected on the basis or academic excellence and leadership qualities, and they were required to keep weekly office hours.

As plans for the building got under way, Bill Petty, dean of the college, and several other faculty members visited universities in other parts of the country to determine the most beneficial and effective design for the building. The college announced an endowed professorship in late December in honor of Trammel Crow, president and founder of the Dallas-based real estate corporation. The professorship was made possible by an anonymous gift to the Business College and would provide an annual stipend for professional activity to a business faculty member. The business faculty continued to strive for a high level of professionalism, attending numerous conventions and seminars across the country and presenting papers from research they had done in a variety of areas. - Kelb Tolson .QP 42, ""'Ms. ,,., g F l. sw,-uf College of Business Top: Stephen Covey talks to business students about what they center their life on.

Among these works were trademarks he had done for World Christian Broadcasting Corporation, Abilene In- dependent School District and Media Southwest. Ted Rose, associate professor, and Gina Sadler, part-time instructor, also displayed works at the tri-college show. Several faculty members participated in various art shows during the year, and some received recognition for their work. Tabor won first place in the Seventh Biennial Five-State Art Exhibition in Port Arthur. He received 3750 for his pain- ting "Artesia Dusk," an acrylic done on a masonite panel. Tabor also won a 3400 juror award for a painting selected by jane Livingston, assistant director of the Concoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Ristau, graphics instructor, was moved to a full-time faculty position. He had previously been a part-time faculty member. The New Masters participated in several events this year. To raise money for student art supplies, the New Masters and the Women of ACU sponsored a sale at Christmas. Students sold artwork done in their classes, said Wes Thorn- ton, senior from Cedar Hill and president of the club. Two students also were honored with a Kappa Pi Art Scholarship. Gladys Cozby won first place, and Patty jones received third place. This marked the third year in a row that an ACU student received top honors, said Thornton. The department sponsored field trips to Dallas.

Busy Bible busi The Bible department continued a busy pace with faculty volved in extension programs, missions seminars, Biblical search and Biblical publications. The department offered degrees to students unable to -me to Abilene for all of their schooling through an exten- xn program in which classes were taught in Wichita Falls d Houston. The courses were prerequisites to the master's gree in Biblical and related subjects. The extension program was designed to encourage the ofessional growth and development of men engaged in ll-time church work, such as preachers and youth ministers io could not return to Abilene for graduate study. Among the professors involved in teaching the courses :re Drs. Ian Fair, Neil Lightfoot and Everett Ferguson. Jout 40 students were enrolled in the program, with classes eeting every other weekend. An important part of the mission education program was e summer Seminar Missions. The six-week program allow- missionaries and others interested in cross-cultural angelism to meet for an intensive training program that in- lved group dynamics, research and fellowship. Sixteen courses were taught by 13 specialists in certain :as of mission work from around the United States and the Jrld. The seminar consited of two three-week sessions in lich a student could earn three semester hours credit for ch session. Bible faculty members also were involved in a number of iolarly research projects. Dr.john T. Willis was selected as e editor of the Old Testament series of the Living Word Liberal Fine Arts IICSS Commentary produced by Sweet Publishing Co. Dr. Tom Olbricht and Dr. Furman Kearley also were to help with the Living Word Commentary series, which was scheduled to take several years to complete. Ferguson was active in the American Society of Church History and also served as editor of a scholarly journal titled the Second Ceniury. Olbricht was editor of Restoration Quarterly and attended a dinner at the Society of Biblical Literature in New York to celebrate the quarterly's 25th anniversary.

Liberal Fine Arts Qiterall poetic education The English department added to the university's cur- ulum with a program in English as a Second Language. ople with teaching certificates could add the 12-hour en- Jrsement, which included language study and ethodology. The department received approval in May of 82 from the Texas Education Agency and added the en- mrsement this year. Dr. David Merrell, chairman of the department, said the ,dorsement provided a needed service because much of the ,S. population did not speak English as a first language. ie endorsement also gave education students a greater op- irtunity to teach in Texas, he said. Aubrey Green, who spent 17 years at Lubbock Christian ollege and received his Ph.D. from Texas Tech, was added the staff this year. He coordinated the Developmental iglish Program which aimed at helping students who did at excel in high school English and needed help in college iglish. The English department sponsored the annual Retta Scott arrett creative writing contest and awarded prizes to win- :rs in poetry, fiction and non-fiction. The Pickwicker literary magazine sponsored by the depart- ent received third place in the Texas Intercollegiate Press ssociation competition. The magazine contained poetry, 'ose fiction, essays, photography and graphics. The department continued its practice of bringing writers id poets to campus for presentations and workshops. Two oets were brought to the campus this year. In the fall, Fred happell, poet novelist, gave a reading of his works and con- cted a writing workshop. Chappell worked at the Univer- ily of North Carolina in Greensboro. it Wife Www! Poet Naomi Shihad Nye came to ACU during the spring semester. She met with the creative writing class, offered an afternoon workshop and read from her works. Nye's "Hugg- ing the jokebox" was selected as one of five winners of the 1981 National Poetry Series competition. Merrell said, "An English degree was used by many students as a pre-professional degree leading to law school or another type of graduate school. Or the degree could give students a broader education that might lead to journalism, advertising, business . . Merrell said he believed the English department provided a well-rounded curriculum from which many students could benefit. -- Krirty Pendergrart x f..2 ' -.-- f R th t Ni? 4. 5. 5. .i S Lett: Julianne Nelson reads during the Retta Scott Garrett contest.

The program had been a part of the curriculum mr seven years, and this year the students were scheduled to avel to Torreon, Mexico,july 8 to Aug. 15. Studies were concentrated at La Universidad Autonoma el Noreste in Torreon because of the availability of .cilities, said T. Mark jones, assistant professor and pro- ram coordinator. jones said Pedro Rivas, head of the niversity, is a personal friend, and he chose the site because ftheir acquaintance. The trip provided students with the opportunity to learn panish in a cultural setting. Because of the unique learning tuation, students could not do all the bookwork required i the language class, but being in Mexico amply made up Jr less classwork,jones said. The time spent in Mexico was beneficial to the students ecause they were motivated to study in the cultural setting rid were more motivated for language study when they :turned to ACU, said jones. Along with the schoolwork the :udents made new friends, saw new places and found a new avist to learning, he said. The intent of the trip was not a missionary thrust, jones iid, but the students influenced the lives they came in con- ict with. While in Torreon the students befriended adults nd children in the Church, he said. q Students also stayed with Mexican families in Torreon, dost of whom were Catholic, said jones. This was a positive xperience for the students as well as for the families, he aid. The image the Mexican people have of Americans and ne Church of Christ improved because of the students, he aid. Picnics, parties and devotionals were among the activities if La Tertulia, the Spanish club, this year. The group also rad weekly meetings. Life ine Latin America and Spain were among the topics liscussed by speakers at meetings of La Tertulia, said jones. Beatrice Walker, from Uruguay, was one of the speakers vho told about life in that country. Ss in-sie kr Members of the foreign language faculty attended several conferences this year. Robert Brown, assistant professor, andjones attended the Language Methods Workshop in Las Vegas, N.M., in Oc- tober. Dr. john Rassias from Dartmouth University led the seminar. jones said the conference was beneficial because Rassias showed new methods for teaching foreign languages. Rassias acted out words as he tried to convey their meaning to the audience, said jones, and his display of anger was in- teresting because he ripped his shirt off. Other conferences the faculty attended were the South- Central Modern Language Association Conference in San Antonio, the Texas Foreign Language Association meeting and a meeting of the American Association of Teachers of French.

That smallness, however, didn't keep the department from attempting to give its majors a true picture of government or from wrestling with major political issues. In attempting to give government majors a true picture of government, the department made an effort to promote ac- tive citizenship among students, according to Dr. Gary Thompson, chairman of the department and a three-term member ofthe Texas House of Representatives. Thompson and the other government faculty members at- tempted to instill in their students the idea that Christians needed to be involved in the political process. n "As a political activist," Thompson said, "I have ex- perienced first hand the influence for good Christians can have on the political system. That's the message I try to con- vey to my students - that politics is not something sordid and demeaning but is a ministry for Christian young people." i' -1 t . . . g .if 1 S ,,-ff . -If A .i K , I i .Sl .A .... j . a,, ng for the arena One of the ways in which the faculty tried to show the ir portance of that influence was through the handling of in portant issues. The department offered a new course durir the fall semester that focused on the role of nuclear weapon in international politics. Robert Williams, assistant professor, taught the cours which included topics such as the Soviet-American arn race, the history of arms control and disarmament effor and the ethical issues raised by various strategies for the u: of nuclear weapons. In addition to Thompson and Williams, the departmei included Ray Inzer, a part-time instructor, and Mel Haile who was on leave to complete a doctoral degree at Tex: Tech University. Each year in addition to the standard curriculum political science, students were exposed to public secti employment through the departments public service interi ship. This program gave students an opportunity to ear credit hours while working part time for a public sector 4 non-profit organization. Another of the departments programs was the America Enterprise Forum, which was designed to promote econom education. For several years the forum had included summi courses for public school teachers interested in improvir their skills in economic education. The AEF began a new phase this year, in cooperation wir West Texas Utilities, of conducting in-service programs fi public school teachers in various school districts in We Texas. The program involved a four-hour multi-media present tion prepared by Inzer about teaching the free enterpri: system. By the end of the spring semester Inzer ha presented the material to eight school districts. - Kel Tolron i .. fi" rx' tim Liberal Fine Arts Top: Tim Channell thinks about the answer to a teacher's question during a class.

Stevens was at the head of a class in ie history department, and Bea Speck stepped down from er position as chairman of the department at the end of the :ring semester to highlight the year for the history faculty. Stevens, who had been a history professor before he gan his work as an administrator with the university, had cided to return to the classroom when he was named iancellor in 1981. After one year of getting a feel for his ew job as chancellor, he made the move back into teaching, Jmething he said he had always loved. Dr. Stevens said one of the more difficult tasks in prepar- ig to teach his one course was in putting notes together gain. When he began his administrative work he had failed m keep notes from the classes he had been teaching, and the love back to the classroom necessitated putting those all rgether again. The administration began a search in the fall for a new lstory department head because Dr. Speck was approaching Er 65th birthday in the spring semester, University regula- ons required that department heads relinquish that position which he discussed the book. Hoover also wrote two articles for the Baker Diczionary of Theology. The articles were titled "Arguments for the Ex- istence of God" and "Apologetics" Hoover attended the Conference on Faith and History, an organization of Chris- tian historians, in November and read a paper titled "Marx- ism and the Family." Dr. Henry Speck III gave numerous presentations concer- ning Turkey, one of his specialities. In February he discussed "Turkey: The Forgotten Ally" with a group of Christian business leaders from the Dallas area. He also spoke that month to a group of history and political science teachers in the Abilene Independent School District on "The Middle East Today." In preparation for a 16-day tour of Turkey planned for june, Dr. Speck discussed "The Turquoise and Aegean Coasts: Crossroads of Civilization" in the Campus Center. - Kelly Tolron pon reaching age 65. Faculty members could, however, Jntinue teaching after age 65, and Dr. Speck planned to do rat. At the end of the spring semester, a new department iairman had not been selected. Dr. Thomas Olbricht, dean fthe College of Liberal and Fine Arts, had said earlier that was possible that one of the other history faculty members .ight be named acting chairman for the 1983-84 year. The history faculty was quite involved in publication of Doks and journal articles and in presentations to various 'oups. Dr. Arlie Hoover's book Don? You Believe It! was iblished during the fall semester by Moody Press of hicago. The book, subtitled Poking Holes in Faully Logic, as designed as an introduction to logical fallacies. Hoover id the idea for the book was conceived after an election far when he realized how many people fell prey to logical llacies.

Help to resolve the conflict: The Marriage and Family Institute, which was run by about 25 graduate students and three professors, served more than 75 couples and families in the West Texas area during the year. The clinic specialized in marriage therapy, family therapy and pre-marital Counseling. "Growth groups," a service of the Institute, were open to the public every Tuesday night. The Institutes three professors, Dr. Paul Faulkner, Dr. Tom Milholland and Dr. Royce Money, were involved in outside speaking appointments in the Abilene community and in churches throughout the nation. Faulkner and Dr. Carl Brecheen continued to conduct their Marriage Enrichment Seminars around the country. Milholland and Money also continued to conduct their Peoplehelping seminars in churches around the nation. This year Milholland had served as a part-time marriage and family therapist with Christian Homes of Abilene. He also spoke for the Abilene Coordination Council and the Abilene Mental Health Association. Money was a part-time minister of family outreach at the Highland Church of Christ and was the program chairm for the Abilene Coordination Council. The Marriage and Family Institute offered two worksho during the summer: Counseling for Church Leaders ai Marriage Renewal Workshop. The Marriage Renewal Workshop conducted june 20- offered married couples a chance to experience a time revitalization in their marriage, said Dr. Mons Workshop topics included communication, confli resolution, expectations and needs, intimacy, self-disclosui spirituality, stress and time pressure. The Counseling for Church Leaders Workshop was co ducted june 27July 1 by Dr. Money. The workshop w designed to help church leaders deal with the variety ofi dividual and family problems in the church and community The course was offered for graduate credit in Bible Marriage and Family Studies. Topics discussed at tl workshop included Biblical views of counseling, depressio alcohol and drug abuse, parent-child problems, and speci problems of church leaders. - Kelb Tolron ,121 . ag r 324 f Marriage and Family ng 2 155 , qv .ex , um mu, ,.,.... ,,,,,,, , , an af E .,,, ' f , 5 ,,,,,, , ,, A V I :P , V,"- ' ' f 2 r .., ' ,- f - K' f Y-3-J"" f x ,ff-Q ,J-..

The music departments four new faculty members were john Daniel, who directed the Five O'Clock jazz Ensemble, Bruce Hurley, who directed the Four O'Clock jazz Ensem- ble, Michael Scarbrough, who directed His Singers: and Dan Mitchell, who was a part-time guitar instructor. Daniel also was a trumpet instructor and was the main trumpet player for the Abilene Philharmonic and San Angelo Symphony. Hurley was responsible for all flute and clarinet private lessons, and Scarbrough directed private voice lessons in addition to their regular teaching responsibilities, The A Cappella had a good anniversary year, highlighted by an invitation to perform for the Texas Music Educators Association annual clinic convention and a special anniver- sary performance in honor of the group's founder, Leonard Burford. A Cappella was directed by Milton Pullen, who said that the invitation to perform at the TMEA convention was quite an honor for the group. The ACU Choral Society was formed in honor of the A Cappella's 50th anniversary, with its main project being to establish an endowed Leonard Burford Tribute Fund that would provide scholarships for choral students. The society also was to assist the music department in recruiting students and to support the choral program. Dr. M. L. Daniels, who was well-known for his numerous compositions for special campus and other activities, was a Piper Professor for 1982. The award, which included a 352,500 honorarium, was given by the Minnie Stevens Piper Founda- tion of San Antonio. Ten Texas professors are honored each year by the foun- dation for their devotion to their profession and for making an impact on their students and the community. Among Daniels' recent compositions were ones for the university's 75th anniversary, a number titled "Psalm 8" for the A Cap- pell's TMEA convention performance and a piece that was performed by the Abilene Philharmonic.

The ACU judging teams tied for the Sweepstakes Award April 22425 in national competition at Illinois State University. The university's teams also tied with Western Kentucky University in the competition, where contestants from 16 states entered livestock, dairy and soil judging categories. The horse judging team took first place, and Harold McDonald, a sophomore from Stephenville, placed first in the individual category. Also, Tommy Thompson, a sophomore agriculture major from Abilene, was the fifth-high individual in the soil judg- ing category. ACU's livestock judging team placed fourth overall. The team took third place in swine judging and oral reasons and placed fourth in the sheep category. Bill Dickerson, a freshman from Brentwood, Tenn., and Phil Donaldson, a sophomore from Sterling, Ky., took ninth and 10th places in the individual livestock category. The department also engaged in numerous other ac- tivities, however, including its annual field day March Z8 for area 4-Il and Future Farmers of America members. About 500 youths competed in livestock, soil, and range and pasture judging. Students in the department also attended several conven- tions. Attending the national Delta Tau Alpha convention in Eastern Kentucky were .Janie Swann, national Delta Tau Alpha secretary and a junior from Taft, and jeff Whiteside, a junior from Hampshire, Tenn. 1 Kayce Frye, a senior from Arlington, and Doug Howari a junior from Stamford attend a tour of agricultural sites i the Lubbock area during spring break. The Southwest regio of Block and Bridle was host for the tour. Darrell Stewart, president of the Aggie Club, won thir place in the national Block and Bridle organization for grad point average, club activities and other school activities. The ag department also offered several scholarships. Th largest scholarship fund was a 315,000 endowment from th Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo that was divide among Z3 people. The awards were made for academi achievement and conduct. Other scholarships included the Robert Malone Memoriz Scholarship, presented to jan johnson, a graduate studer from Pampa, and to Ricky jackson, a junior from Marshal They received 31,000 each. The F. M. Churchill Scholarship of 3300 was given to We Pringle, a senior from Gunnison, Colo. The Colby Memori: Scholarship was awarded to Loyd Sims, a senior fror Abilene. He was given a ssoo. The Ex-Aggie Scholarship of 3500 was presented to Brer Carpenter, a senior from Webb City, Mo. In addition to teaching responsibilities and extracurricula work with the many ag-related organizations sponsored b the department, the faculty also found time to do som research. Dr. Edwin DuBose and Dr. Bryan Brokaw worked on project called "Livestock-Feeding Trials and Genetics." D F. M.

'Q-'25 BOX Biology ,MM National Applied Sciences Equipped for micro research The department of biology received new equipment dura 5 the year through donations, research grants and the use special departmental restricted funds, said Dr. Clark -vens. head of the department. An anonymous donor gave the department a Commodore per-PET QSPQOOQ computer that featured six built-in guages. Three TRS-80 model computers and software for t new equipment also were obtained, Stevens said. He said the computers would be used in both teaching d research situations. "We have really just been in the pro- as of learning about the computers," said Stevens. The biology department also received a dozen new earch-quality microscopes, a new laminar flow cabinet it will provide a sterile environment and a new video tape .yer and camera, said Stevens. The equipment was pur- ased with restricted funds made up of money donated to ? department by alumni and friends. The department added a new professor this year. Dr. nes R. Nichols, a 1966 graduate, came to ACU in the fall vm the lTniversity of Central Arkansas. lle received his ister's degree from the University of Michigan in lwti and i doctorate from the University of Missouri at Columbia in 73. Stevens said animal physiology was Nichols' specialty. Several faculty members attended workshops and 2etings during the year. Three faculty members, Dr. Archie anis, Dr. Gerald Wilson and Stevens, served at the meeting the American Society for Microbiology in Lubbock. Manis and Dr. Ken Williams also attended a Sheautaqua orkshop at the University of Texas on the subject of olution. Sheautaqua Workshops are offered around the na- fn about a variety of topics, Stevens said. Dr. Roy Shake ended a similar workshop on ecology that was conducted a small island offthe coast of Georgia, Stevens said. Also, 22 students were accepted into professional pro- ams last year. Fifteen were accepted into medical or dental aools, one to optometry school, one into a doctor of phar- icy program, one into a regular pharmacy program, three physical therapy school, and one to physicians assistant nool. - Tammy Fielder - . .

Bottom: Group Researching new ad ancements Two new degree programs, bachelor of science and bachelor of arts in biochemistry, were offered in the fall by the department of chemistry, said Dr. Tommy McCord, department chairman. He said the BS. in biochemistry was recommended for students who planned careers as professional biochemists or who planned to work toward advanced degrees in biochemistry. The degree was designed to meet the ac- creditation standards ofthe American Chemical Society. The B.A. degree was designed principally for students who wished to receive a degree in biochemistry in conjunc- tion with the completion of a pre-professional program in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy or op- tometry, McCord said. The department had the qualified faculty, laboratory facilities, equipment and library holdings to offer these new degree programs in biochemistry, McCord said. The chemistry department also added about 375,000 worth of new equipment during the school year. Hewlett Packard donated a gas chromatograph and a microprocessor controller worth almost 317,000 as part of its equipment gl'kif1IpI'Og1'21ITT. Other equipment, including an infrared and an ultravioletfvisible spectrophotometer. were purchased with money donated by friends and alumni, McCord said. Both of these instruments were interfaced to a computer data sta- tion and a printer, which were given to the school by the Perkin-Elmer Corp. with the purchase of the infrared spec- trophotometer. Several software packages for both spec- trophotometers were also purchased. The new equipment not only provided students with an opportunity to train as professional chemists, but also let faculty perform research and analyses, McCord said. lfive members of the faculty received grants totaling 31-19,474 for research and equipment during 1982-83. Dr. Alvie Davis received money from the Robert A. Welch Foundation and the ACI' Research Council for his project, "Synthesis and Properties of Nitrogen Heterocyclesf' McCord also received money from the Welch Foundation for his work with "Synthesis and Chemistry of Amino Acids," and the ACU Research Council gave a grant tojohn Bradford for his research on "Trace Analysis of Metals Us- ing Ion Exchange Resin-Loaded Papers and Electrochemical Techniques." The AClT Research Council gave money for the study of "Interaction of Atoms and Molecules at Catalytic Surfaces" by Dr. Robert Iiance, and the Welch Foundation donate funds to Dr. Bennett Hutchinson for his work on "Applic: tions of the Metal Isotope Techniques to Vibrational Spei tra" and to Dr, Perry Reeves for his research on "Studies r Some Metalstabilized Carbonium Ions." Faculty members attended a number of workshops, cor ferences and seminars across the country during the schoc year, and three chemistry students presented papers at tl? American Chemical Society Meeting-in-Miniature. Davi Hance and McCord were three of 31 research associate selected to the Republic of Texas Research Associates Inc., corporation that offered consultant services for chemistt and physics. fTummy Fielder '-il 5 . picture, FRONT ROW' Alvie Davis, Bennett Hutchinson, Tommy McCord, Floyd Dunn.

During the year, ACU installed a new amputer system and added the computer science depart- ient to the academic curriculum. The addition of the computer science department stemm- E from increased enrollment in the area of computer .ience studies. Enrollment in the department had steadily icreased since the program began in 1979 as part of the iath department. Last fall the department had 73 students majoring in computer science - a 62 percent increase from ie previous year's enrollment. The department was one of four departments selected for :view by a visiting committee. The committee, composed J members of the Advisory Board, critiqued different epartments within the university and gave suggestions for ossible improvements. The committee stayed in contact with the department iroughout the year and reviewed it approximately every six Z2-wg... U 1 Fl. Goodman R. Goodman months. Dr. Dwight Caughfield, chairman ofthe computer science department, said the department had grown rapidly during the past years and would continue to expand because ofthe increasing popularity of computer science and related fields. "Computer science, engineering and business are where the money is," said Caughfield. Also, the addition of the computer science department was advantageous for the university, he said. "Becoming a department made us more visible and gave us the chance to be in the catalog." Caughfield also said that increased visibility would enable the department to obtain better equipment. The department had two full-time staff members: Caughfield and Dr, William Poucher. Dr, john Smallwood worked as a part-time staff member. He also taught in the math department. Caughfield said if the department continued to grow it would have to employ new staff members, buy more equip- ment, and increase the facilities. The department was short on microcomputers during 1982-83 and had an overload of students in lab, he said. But the department had a strong computer programming curriculum, and the faculty planned to increase the number of classes offered, especially in areas such as computer graphics, Caughfield said. A class designed for non-majors that would concentrate on teaching computer literacy was another area the department wanted to consider. Coinciding with the programming curriculum was ACU's Association of Computing Machinery. The association had 50,000 national members and many student chapters. Members of the ACM participated in Division I Four-State programming competitions. During the last few years the team had been to the nationals twice, competing with many mayor universities. The department also conducted workshops for secondary teachers. These workshops were designed to promote com- puter technology on the secondary level, said Caughfield. - Kelbf Tolforz Top: Guy Gibson works on a programming problem.

Learning healthy games The health, physical education and recreation department had about 250 majors, many of them graduating and going into teaching or coaching, while some went into private or public recreation and others into community health work, Among the departments 10 faculty members many of them were involved in research and extracurricular activities. Dr. Cleddy Varner did research in "Water Quality and Treatment Methods for Recreationalists in the Pecos Wilderness Against Pathological and Bacterial Infection." The intent of his study was to recommend procedures that recreationalists might use to treat water for drinking purposes. The study also looked at treatment methods feasi- ble to persons camping, hunting and hiking for extended periods in the back country. The findings in heavy traffic areas were tested and found to have moderate to high coliform counts. Bleach was found to be a very effective and efficient method of treating the water for drinking purposes. Dr. Curt Dickson had completed his research on the "Physiological Change Following Simulated Altitude Change." Dickson also was the chairman for the measure- ment and evaluation section of Texas Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation. Dr. Dickie Hill conducted research on youths concerning their attitudes toward death and dying. Hill also did some research on foreign students' views toward health, mainly sex education, as compared to foreign students at other schools. Dr. joyce Curtis wrote an activities manual on "Pickleball," a vigorous tennis type game and a relatively new sport designed at ACU. The physical education department offered two new classes, and plans were formulated for a new class for the 1985-84 year. Last spring a Strength Training class was added to the curriculum. To coincide with the class another weight lifting room was opened up. A new canoe class also began last spring. The course em- phasized basic canoe skills in white water and camping skills that were peculiar to river travel. The classroom phase included health and safetyg condi- tioning and clothing selection for all seasonsg map and com- pass readingg menu planning and outdoor cooking techni- quesg and purchasing, use and care of equipment. It also included transportation and packaging of supplies, basic knots for activitiesg hypothermia and heat exhaustiong and canoeing skills. The class ended with a four-day canoe trip on the Guadalupe. The freshman P.E. program was restructured so that, beginning in the fall of 1985, freshmen would take Concepts of Health. The class, coordinated by Cecil Eager, was designed at ACU and would have an activities lab in conjunction with the classroom work. The new Concepts class replaced the Concepts of Biology and Health class that many students had taken for P.E. credit. The department sponsored its first powerlifting meet in the spring. The intercollegiate meet was for amateur weight lifters, and plans were made to try to schedule two more meets during the next academic year. - Kelly Tolxon FRONT ROW:-Joyce Curtis, Addie Felts, Beth McLesky, Liz Campbell, BACK ROW: Curt Dickson, Cleddy Varner, Lynn Luttrell, Cecil Eager, Dickie Hill.

A program on the wa uj An increase in the number of majors and the hiring oftwo new faculty members were among some of the changes in the industrial education department. The department was one of the few private institutions that offered a four-year degree program in technology education. The industrial education department awarded two types of bachelor's degrees and also an associate degree. The department emphasized training in technology with classes covering the areas of drafting, graphic arts, photography and computer graphics. Continuing advances in technology and engineering and greater employment opportunity in those areas were the main reasons for the increase in industrial education majors, according to Dr.jerry Drennan, chairman ofthe department. More than 100 students chose industrial education as a major in 1982-83. "The technology fields have become such a priority area in society, more students are choosing to study those subjects," said Drennan. Drennan went on to point out that over the last five years ACU's total enrollment has increased approximately 1.7 p cent while enrollment in the industrial education departmc has increased almost 30 percent. That rapid growth was t cause for hiring two new instructors. james Cooke, who received a master of science degree industrial education from North Texas State University, vs hired to teach metals, power, woodworking and other pi fessional classes. Cooke previously taught at Western St: College of Colorado and in the Hurst, Euless, Bedford a Denton public school systems. Dr. Delbert Towell came to ACU from Western Kc tucky State University. Towell received his master of arts industrial education from Oregon State University and I doctorate from Texas A8cM. He taught visual communii tions and drafting at ACU and had previously taught in t California public school systems. "I particularly enjoy teaching at ACU," Towell sa "because students seem to be here mainly to get an educ tion rather than just have a good time." - Kelb Tolron - 358 f Industrial Education 1 1" r a c 3 3 , I' if Ji if Natural Applied Sciences -snuff' ek nun-Wm A L, 3 it in mmm A4 3 7 Top left: Jim Cooke demonetretee how to uee e wood cutting machine.

Hogg was notified of his ranking in March. He and udents from 12 Texas universities took the test. along with ndergraduates from all over the United States and Canada. The test covered many areas of mathematics, and Hogg :ored 20 points out of a possible 120. More than 900 udents did not score at all. Two other students competed with Hogg as a team from CU, and their scores were added to his for a university fam total. Rick Oden, a junior computer science major 'om Abilene, and Richard Bradford, a junior mathematics iajor also from Abilene, competed with Hogg. Their scores ombined with Hoggs placed ACU 100th out of 249 teams. Dr.james Bradford, professor of mathematics was elected J the Board of Governors of the Mathematics association f America, representing more than 800 members of the A Texas section. Bradford traveled to the Peoples Republic of China in june as a member of a delegation of university mathemati- cians. The delegates visited with Chinese mathematics and computer science instructors, as well as government educa- tion officials. The SciencefMathematics Research Committee honored six outstanding seniors from the math and sciences depart- ments April 18, at its annual SciencefMath Senior Honors Dinner. Recipients were chosen for their "qualities of Christian character, scholarship, leadership and promise for profes- sional productivity as representative of the highest ideals of Christian service." Members of the math department attended several con- ferences during the year. These were the Conference for Ad- vancement of Math Teaching, the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematics Association of America, and the American Statistical Association. Faculty members were active in operations research, research of differential equations, metric spaces and statistics. Other professional activities of members of the mathematics department included basic research in pure and applied mathematics, computer work, industrial consulting, and professional experience in all phases of teaching and teacher training. The department sponsored Mu Sigma, the student math club. The club sponsored math films and lectures.

Of all the graduates this year, six had a special reason to celebrate. Those six people were the first ACU students to graduate with a bachelor of science degree in nursing. The students completed their work at the Abilene Inter- collegiate School of Nursing, which includes students from Abilene's three colleges - ACU, McMurry College and Hardin-Simmons University. Students enrolled in the program completed lower- division work at ACU, then attended the nursing school dur- ing their junior and senior years. The nursing training included classroom and lab work, in addition to practical experience, said Molly Hall, assistant professor of nursing. Students usually attended classes Mon- day, Wednesday and Friday and worked in a practical health-care setting Tuesday and Thursday. Students did prac- ticum work at such Abilene locations as West Texas Rehabilitation Center, Abilene Public Schools, Sears and Rose Park Community Centers and West Texas Medical center, wx!

For three days the students tool over the sixth floor at Hendrick Hospital during the daj shift, where they used primary nursing techniques. Excep for the regular patient care coordinator, the students ant three faculty members from the nursing school provided al the regular patient care, said Hall. Primary nursing differed from regular patient care becaus- one nurse was responsible for total patient care, said Lind: Ferguson, senior from Lubbock. Hall said in primary nursini the patient also played a more active role in his care, as op posed to the passive role played in other types of care. The nurse, along with the patient, set personal goals, saic Renai Knight, senior from Lake jackson, and this helped tht patient become an active partner in his health care. Primarj nursing was a more balanced approach because the nursn evaluated the patient, but the patient also evaluated thi nurse, Knight said. The primary nurse made out a written care plan tha others followed when the primary nurse was not on duty Knight said. The nurse also was responsible for talking witl the family and physician about the patient's care. Knight said she thought the experiment was successfu because it exposed the staff to primary nursing, and it helpec train the students about a primary nursing situation. At time: the experiment was difficult because it was only temporary and not enough preparation was provided for a permanenl change, she said. In addition to regular clinical work, the students were given an opportunity to gain some experience in specializes: fields this year, Knight said. A student worked six lab hour: each week in a field of his choice. The program, called a preceptorship, allowed students tc better prepare for jobs in specialized nursing fields, said Knight. The school of nursing was accredited by the Texas Statl Board of Nurse Examiners. Although the students com, pleted degree requirements by May, they had to take stat board exams in the summer to become licensed as registere nurses. - Tammy Dablqf l Natural X Applied Sciences 5 ,4 iii ' f ,, ff f - , fy ZZ?

Also, Dr. Paul Schulze, chair- man of the department, received a 10-week NASA fellowship to study lunar samples. Dr. Talent came to ACU from Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay, Wis. Before spending two years doing post- doctoral work there, Talent received his Ph.D. from Rice University in Houston. The addition of Talent, whose speciality was astronomy, to the physics department filled a hole in that area, said Schulze, "He has added a new dimension we've never had before," said Schulze. "He's actually an astronomer, doing research in astronomy and involving students in that research." The year also was highlighted by the department chair- man's invitation to attend a prestigious, intensive study at the johnson Space Center in Houston. Schulze was one of only 100 scientists across the nation who were accepted to spend 10 weeks researching ar analyzing lunar samples. The geology division had expanded its educational pr gram immensely since Dr. Charles Felix, head of the geoloi program, came to ACU two years ago. The department acquired a new building to house sever offices, a seminar room and three lab rooms last fall. Tl department also acquired some more advanced equipmer bringing ACU's geology program up to date, said Dr. Felix The geology division sponsored a geology club and w working through the Geology National Honor Society 1 obtain a chapter of the honor society at ACU. The pap work had to be completed before the chapter could be fc mally installed, however. During the spring semester the department acquired fossilized mammoth tusk found at an area gravel pit. Fel said the tusk, probably from an ice-age mammal that live 8,000 to 10,000 years ago, was about six feet long ar weighed about 50 pounds. - Kelh Tolfon and Elire Smith FRONT ROW: Mike Sadler, Paul Schulze, ROW Z: David Talent, Paul Morris.

Communicating With four divisions focusing on different fields, it was in- evitable that the department of communication would be characterized by diverse activities. The department also had some common goals. however, that helped unify it, said Dr. Ed Brown. department chairman. One of those goals centered on professional orientation through organization memberships and research. As a result ofthat professional orientation the oral communication divi- sion changed its name to human communication. The name change was made to reflect terminology used more widely in the field, Brown said. The human communication faculty served in key posi- tions in major organizations in their field. Dr. Carley Dodd was chairman of the International Intercultural Commission of the Speech Communication Association of America and of the Intercultural Division of the Southern Speech Com- munication Association. joe Cardot was vice chairman of the SCAA Intercultural Division, and Dr. Mike Lewis was vice chairman of the Organization Communication Commission of the SCAA. journalism and mass communication faculty members at- tended several professional meetings during the year. Dr. Charlie Marler accompanied a group of students to the na- tional Society of Professional journalists, Sigma Delta Chi convention in November. He and Merlin Mann attended the founding meeting of the American journalism History Association. Marler was named a production editor of a new journal, Americazzjour- nalirm, to be introduced in 1983. Cindy Stocking and a group of students attended the national Associated Col- professionali m legiate Press meeting in October. In the drama division, Ted Starnes completed his doctora degree at North Texas State University in December, ani two new instructors, Wyatt Hester and Adam Hester, weri added to the faculty. The drama division continued its heavj production schedule with the Homecoming musical, threi Dinner Theatres and several other productions. -Iayni Whitaker of the human communication division, starred ii one ofthe Dinner Theatres. Dee Kirby of the communication disorders division wa elected in the fall as president of the Big Country Speech Language-Hearing Association. Several other changes in the department helped move i toward its goal of a high level of professionalism. The Com munication Research Center was established in late spring ii conjunction with World Christian Broadcasting Corpora tion. Dr. B. E. Davis was named director of the center in ad dition to maintaining some of his teaching responsibilities, The journalism-mass communication division also receiv ed approval for a fifth academic sequence, photojournalisrr and a new instructor was hired as director of the sequencr for the fall of 1983. The division also made a major step in the direction o professional quality when it was accepted unanimously inti the American Society ofjournalism School Administrators. The organizations aim is to improve journalism educatioi by aiding administrators in organizing and directing an effi cient academic unit. Marler said ACU would be recognize. as having a stronger program because of the ASJS1 acceptance. 546 f Communication P' ' iff?

A grant of 16 computers and software allowed the depart- ent to create its own computer lab. The grant led to a new quirement for all majors in the department to be trained on e computer system before graduation. The main purpose of the new lab and its requirement was make students feel more comfortable around computers, cording tojeri Pfeifer, professor of education, who was in- rumental in arranging the grants. "We were running into situations in the public schools here computers were available and the students would now how to use the computer but the teacher would not," lid Pfeifer. "The purpose of the new degree requirement as to give all education majors, who planned to become ertified, the ability to know when the computer is a good 'aching tool and when to use other methods ofteachingf' Pfeifer said that many graduates already had been asked in job interview whether or not they were familiar with com- ters. "I'm not sure how much it has to do with someone tting or not getting a job, but I do know our graduates are ing asked about their abilities with computers, and we ant them to be able to answer positively." The second grant from the Tandy Corp. involved three Ilodel III TRS-80 computers, three color computers, two 'inters and other assorted software to be used in reading inics. Although the clinic also was taught in the fall as a regular ass, the first use of the computers was in the summer dur- g the five weeks of the children's reading clinic.

The computers were used to diagnois each child's level of reading, spelling and other abilities. With that information, the computers were helpful in designing individual activities for each child to help with the child's specific problems. "The computers were a wonderful motivation for the children in the clinic," said Pfeifer. "Once we got them on there we could hardly get them off. Sometimes the computer was able to reach a child when no other method could." - George Brown -1-,ar xl'--i..,,,-.. x ,VKKV 'faire Top right: A student listens during a class lecture.

Home economics students put classroom knowledge to use and had high expectations for the future job market. Several ACU graduates in the department of home economicsffamily studies were established in jobs around the state and nation as a result of the programs ACU offered, said Dr. Kelly. The home economicsffamily studies department con- sisted of four major divisions: home economics educationg it .V ,rtt ilit -5 family strengtlf food, nutrition and dieteticsg fashion merchandising, interiw design and general home economics. Home economics education majors could get a voc tional certification with an option for teaching endorsemen in kindergarten by taking only nine more credit hours. Mai students followed that route, said Dr. Kelly. Practical wo: in this field included majors maintaining the Adams Hon Management House located on Cedar Crest. In eight weeks four women were given the opportunity 1 manage food, time, money and resources in the home, supe vised by jeri Welch, part-time ACU teacher. Also, majo looking for endorsements in kindergarten were required 1 spend some time at the ACU nursery, which was directed l Mrs. Loreta Kelley. Dr. Kelly said only a small number of majors were food, nutrition and dietetics because of all the science i volved. ACU offered the American Dietetic Association a proved Plan IV which led graduates to apply for an inter ship and a possible Registered Dietitian designation. Dr. Kelly said that food, nutrition and dietetics majo were encouraged to work in their field while attendir school. She said 40 hours of outside work in some sort I food management was required. The fashion merchandising major had one of the large number of students. Many job opportunities were in Dall and Houston. In this major students were required to fini: 160 hours of work to graduate. Annetta Smith was the first student to graduate from tl interior design program. As the newest degree area in the department, it was attracting many students, said Dr. Kelly. General home economics, furthermore, provided for broad background in homemaking skills and did nr specialize in any particular field. The department also offerc graduate programs.

These associations offered faculty and students the oppor- tunity to continue their education and keep current on developments and research in the field of psychology by at- tending the annual conferences. Two psychology professors conducted research projects. Dr. Ina Green, professor, studied child psychology. and Dr, Robert Sturgeon, a biofeedback therapy teacher, studied biofeedback therapy. The department had purchased some biofeedback equip- ment that did neuro and psychological assessment, The new equipment aided Dr. Sturgeon in his biofeedback therapy work. Biofeedback therapy centers on the use of components to measure the body's vital signs - electromyogram KEMGL the electro-dermal activity monitor for measuring the con- ductivity ofthe sweat glands and a temperature monitor for measuring the temperature of the skin's surface. These machines made it possible to monitor physiological conditions and changes within the body, Once conditions were monitored therapists could use biofeedback procedures to help relax patients. - Kelly Tolirm g f V s -www, Top: A student takes notes during class.

In October the social workfsociology department re- ceived word from the Council for Social Work Education that the social work degree was fully accredited. This news followed several years of departmental prepara- tion aimed at improving the program quality for accredita- tion, said Dr. Rollo Tinkler, chairman of the department. Nationwide standards are set by the CWSE for faculty and curriculum before a program can be accredited. One of the major changes worked on during the years of preparation was integrating courses with one another in the curriculum, said Tinkler. Course syllabi also were updated by adding more recent readings to class requirements, he said. Also, the CWSE required at least three full-time faculty ,Wayne 354 f Sociology X 1 A--Lg "t xr ,. E' 3 members to be working in the department for one ye Tinkler said this requirement was met one year ago and vi in working force this year. The faculty members brought to the department a varic of expertise, he said. This expertise helped make the soc work curriculum a "total program," said Tinkler, and 0 that was praised by the accreditation reviewers. In completing the application for accreditation, t department only mentioned the minimal requirements, sa Tinkler. CSWE reviewers were "pleasantly surprised" to fir the program much stronger than the application led them believe, he said. Of the 10 programs the reviewer had set none were found to be stronger than ACU's progra: Tinkler said. The accreditation added several benefits, among them chance for those receiving a bachelor's degree from an a credited institution to receive a full year of credit from mc graduate schools of social work across the country, sa Tinkler. Substantial job benefits were available to graduad from accredited programs, said Tinkler, because mai federal and state social service agencies hired only those wl had graduated from accredited programs. The department added one new member to the facuI1 Terry Morris, who came to ACU from Lubbock. He hi been teaching at Texas Tech Medical School while in Lu bock.

Building for the future Among those suffering casualties resulting from the reces- sion were higher educational institutions. But ACU managed to be the exception to the rule with at least one plan for growth: the Margaret and Herman Brown Library. Along with additional building space, faculty also was increased. Early in the fall it was announced that funds were available for a 32.5 million wing to be added to the library. Several foundations provided funds, including the Brown Foundation of Houston with a gift of 3500,000g the j.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, 31 million, and miscellaneous gifts totalling 31 million. The new wing would expand to the west of the existing building and add 25,000 square feet of library space. An atrium was planned to connect the wing to the main building. Kenneth Roach, director of libraries and instructional media, said the space would be used to increase the government-documents section of the library. The remaining space would be used to expand other sections, including special collections and university archives. The new facility would "allow an increase in library holdings and services to better serve the students and facul- ty," said Roach. The dream of the new wing became a reality at the Feb. 22 ground-breaking ceremony. Dr. joe Mabee, trustee for the Mabee Foundation, surprised President William-I. Teague by presenting the foundation's gift of 31 million during the ceremony. Roach said he had not expected to receive the check at the ceremony. He said ACU had matched the 31 million given by the Mabee Foundation, but he thought the check would come by mail or by courier. More than 100 people attended the ground breaking. Roach said a completion date for the wing had not been determined because a building date had not been set. Total construction time was approximated at 360 days. Construc- tion began in mid-May. As the university made plans for the expansion, new staff members were added to the library faculty. Michael Ayres was assigned to a cataloging position. He had been associated with the library since 1974 as a student worker and full-time staff member. Ayres received a master's degree in library science from North Texas State University in 1982. Lilah Gainey joined the staff in 1982. She worked at the reference desk and directly with faculty in acquisitions. KX FRONT ROW: Kenneth Roach, Callie Fay Milliken, Lilah Gainey, R. L. Roberts.

Amy said of her most memorable mo- ment at ACU: "The first thing that comes to mind was my first Sunday at school my freshman year when I saw over 1,000 people gather to praise God on a Sunday morning -- almost lifting the roof off the building with their singing. Never do I take for granted what Abilene has given me - a con- fidence that Christianity is alive." secretary for the 1982 primary race. She alsc was involved with several professtona? organizations, including the Speech Com munrcation Association and the Souther Speech Communication Association Mary was a December graduate an began graduate work at the University o Texas in Austin during january. She said he most memorable moment at ACU wa "without question, receiving the Dea Adams Achievement Award." was state Rep. Gary 'I'hompson's pres: . . . . E ' d l I s Il I l 000.2 Teacher of the Year Friendly, enthusiastic, entertaining, interesting, iowledgeable. Those adjectives sound like ones used to :scribe the man of the year. This time, however, they were ed to describe the Teacher of the Year, Dr. W. Herschel vinger. The adjectives weren't used by faculty members or by 'esident William Teague when he announced the award i the professor of education. Those adjectives were used by niors who had experienced the teaching abilities of Dr. Av- get as they sat in his classes. Avinger, who joined the ACU faculty in 1966 because he vanted to teach in a Christian university," was nominated Teacher of the Year by students and faculty members. He id his reaction to the selection was one of "complete sur- ise . . . an honor I never expected to receive." Although he may not have expected the honor, the Jminations proved that his students thought he was very fserving of it. One student described Dr. Avinger as being "concerned about each student, very candid, friendly." He "taught prac- tical lessons," the student said. Another senior said Avinger was "one of my favorite teachers because of his enthusiasm for us and his eagerness for us to get to know each other. He presented class lectures in a variety of ways and no one hardly missed class because there were so many interesting things covered each time." Perhaps one of the highest compliments paid Avinger was from a student who said, "He gave me inspiration as a future teacher about how to make a so-so class into a great learning experience." Compliments didn't just come from students, however. Dr. Chantrey Fritts, head of the education department, prais- ed Avinger for doing "an outstanding job as director of graduate studies in education." Fritts said that under Av- inger's leadership, the graduate program in education had grown during the past two years in spite of the economy.

He was a managementfmarketing major from Mound Bayou, Miss. At Southwestern, Curtis served as Student Senate presi- dent and worked on the yearbook staff. He also was voted second runnerup for Mr. Southwestern Christian College. Curtis said. "I came in Cro ACUD and refused to simply sit back and be overwhelmed by the number of people." Southwestern had a student body of approximately 300 students. When Curtis came to ACU he said he wanted to get in- volved. He became a member of the Student Foundation and of Al ha Chi national honor society. He also was a member ofp the Cultural Excellence Organization. "To be involved," Curtis said, "is to put yourself out of your own shell and interact in whatever way you can." Get- ting an education, he said, is more than simply learning what's in the books. College is a unique opportunity," said Curtis. "It helps to round you as a person. You get some leadership experience and you get a chance to see how organizations are run." "When Curtis first started attending ACU, he said he was excited. "When I went into a classroom, rather than taking a back seat, I'd sit as close to the front as I could, which in most cases I'd be in the front of the class. And I just got in- volved in the learning process." And the fruits of his labor were apparent. He was listed on the Dean's Honor Roll his first two semesters. He was active in several campus organizations, worked as a camp counselor for ACU's summer camp Kadesh and was employed as a stu- dent assistant in the computer lab. Sharon Johnston: "Involvement at school just means getting out and doing extra things that interest you," said Sharon Johnston, a finance major from Bedford. Sharon said she believed that being involved was essential to being happy while at college. She said, "It gives you an opportunity to meet other people and be with friends." "I pretty much got involved in whatever I wanted to," she said, "but at the same time I have always put grades and stu- dying first." Sharon became involved in Senate her senior year by serv- ing as secretary for her senior class. She was a member of Student Foundation and Alpha Chi national honor society and served as treasurer for Kojo Kai social club. Sharon said, "I'd like to think that through Senate I've performed a service through all the activities that we do: with the major entertainment, with the educational programs we brought to school and then with the class activities that we've provided. "I've just tried to make people enjoy it here as much as I do. Ithink that everybody needs to enjoy it here," she said. Sharon said she believed that ACU has a good balance of academics and extracurricular activities. "Part of coming to college is as much learning how to get along with people as it is learning things from the books." Academics, along with extracurricular activities, were a part of Sharon's life while at ACU. And yet, because she took summer classes at home, she was able to find a balance between the two that allowed her to graduate from college after only three years. 380fSherrod Sherrod Scholars dams Achievement Award Lucy Herrera: After seven years of marriage and two children, and with only 12 hours of college credit, Lucy Herrera decided to return to school for the degree she had long anticipated. - Lucy attended a junior college in Snyder, 35 miles from her home in Roscoe, for two years before coming to ACU. She commuted 100 miles each day her final two years. Lucy's decision to return to school brought with it several obstacles. She said she believed the biggest obstacle that she had to overcome was the burden of commuting. "A lot of times I wanted to quit, but my husband was right there behind me. Ifl had not had my family's help, it would have been very difficult to get through." Another obstacle that Lucy, a public relations major, was forced to deal with was the difficulty of balancing respon- sibilities to her family and maintaining her school work. She said many nights she was up until 3 a.m. doing homework after she spent the evenings taking care of her family. "It's been very rough," said Lucy, "but I just keep looking ahead and thinking, 'Well, I dont have that much more to go and with theisupport I have I'll make it.' " Lucy said she didn't have to make any adjustments as far as the homework and the studying were concerned. "It just came back to me. I always enjoyed school." While at Western Texasjunior College, Lucy said she had trouble relating to the younger students. But when she transferred to ACU, Lucy said the students "forgot the age difference and brought me in as one ofthe group." Lucy said she believed that much of their acceptance and friendliness was a result of the Christian perspective and the Christian spirit of the young people. joe Booth: Three years after a tragic fall from the ceiling of Moody Coliseum,joe Booth graduated from ACU with a degree in computer science. joe had been attending college eight years when the acci- dent occurred and already had received a degree in music education. After sitting out of school a year, he returned with renewed vigor and determination. "Overcoming the notoriety" was one of the biggest ad- justments joe said he had to make. "I am basically a very withdrawn person. I like to work and I like to be in the background. "It's a little strange," he said, "to walk all over campus - and even Abilene - and have people who know you simply because you fell." joe said another obstacle he faced was the physical mobility limitations he had after the fall. "I was really active, and it has been an uphill battle. I hurt a lot of the time," he said. "Not really major pains, just little nagging stuff .... " joe was involved in several technical areas on campus. He worked with the band-loading crew and did technical work around campus for many years. He also worked as house manager for Cullen Auditorium the first two years after the facility opened. He also has been the technical director for Sing Song for many years. joe said being involved made him feel like he was a part of life instead of being a spectator. The successes gained from being involved,joe said, were a real boost to his self image. "Being involved has built up C my confidence and taught me that no matter what the cir- Ecumstances, if you really want something and work hard fjenough for it, you can get it." ui Adams Achievement Award f 581 Honor Lafl Honor M n 382 X Honor Man, Honor Lady Elise Smith: Elise, a public relations major from Carbondale, Ill., said she believed being involved was very important to feeling a part of ACU. "The friends you make and the people that you serve and meet are worth any amount of time or effort you could ever put into a project." She said being involved was important "for people who are new to ACU. Learning to serve others and taking on pro- jects are the most opportune ways to meet people." Elise was involved in numerous organizations and ac- tivities. "l enjoyed being active and working with so many different people. By being involved you really came to feel like you had a place at ACU - a reason for being here." Elise said she was surprised about being chosen Honor Lady. "lt's humbling to think that people would have even considered me for such an award. l am thankful God has given me the chance to be at ACU, be involved in so many things and meet so many different people. "It's the people who have been with these last four years who have meant the most to me," she said. "They helped mold and shape my impressions and my values. They're the ones who encourage me to be a good person and to strive to be spiritually strong. And they are what I will miss most when l leave ACU." Paul Hancock: Paul, a premed-biology major from Lubbock, said one the richest benefits of ACU was the opportunity to get know people and develop deep, meaningful "Anytime we're involved in those kinds of relationships ai that kind of involvement," he said, "we grow as people." Paul said he believed it was important to be involv because of the people. "Getting to know different peoj and being exposed to their thoughts and their Christian live has really helped deepen me as a person," he said, "and the was one of my goals in coming to ACU." Paul said that when deciding on a college, ACU was th best choice. He said he believed he would not be sacrificin quality academics. "I would be getting a strong education." Paul said that ACU had given him a great education, ' lot of guidance and leadership, reinforcement of my value and some great friends l'll have the rest of my life." "I was floored" was Paul's reaction to being name Honor Man. Paul said he would always remember ACU for the time l' spent with his close friends. "Not only students, but als some of the faculty who went out of their way to be frient with me," he said. "l've got so many rich memories." Trustees Award jeff Conner: jeff, who graduated magna cum laude with a B,A. degree in oral communication, earned the distinction of the Trustees Award because of his involvement in speech and debate. He and his partner placed third in the nation at the national Pi Kappa Delta debate tournament in April. jeff also received the Degree of Highest Distinction from the na- tional office of Pi Kappa Delta. He was a member of the ACU Student Bar Association and the Xi Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta debating fraternity. He also was president of Centurion social club and a member of Alpha Chi and Blue Key. jeff planned to enter the University of Texas Law School after graduation from ACU. -jatkie Tubbs Grant Feasel: Grants accomplishments were easily seen in his football career, but he also excelled in the academic area. The 6-7, 263-pound football player was drafted by the Baltimore Colts in the spring to become the first Wildcat since 1977 to be picked in the NFL draft. Among his other football honors were first team all-Lone Star Conference for two years, LSC Offensive Lineman of the Year, second team academic All-America, first team Associated Press college division All-America and first team Kodak All-America as selected by the American Football Coaches Association. Grant, a pre-dental major who graduated cum laude with a B.S. degree in biology, was accepted by all three Texas dental schools and received a 32,000 postgraduate scholar- ship from the National Collegiate Athletic Association. He was the only Texan to receive one of the Z5 scholarships to football players. Grant also was a member of Trojans, the Student Advisory Board and Beta Beta Beta biology honor Society. -jackie Tubbs Trustees Award X 585 raduation Academic excellence was the key for the four top students in the 1983 graduating class.

She completed her degree in finance after only three years and accepted a posi- tion as a student recruiter for the university for 1983-84. - jackie Tubbr V. W. Kelley Award f 385 ff. and M155 AC and nommees Being nominated by your peers as examples of what an ACL' student should be was quite an honor, but being selected as the two best examples of what the ACT' student should be was even a greater honor. Clay Hale and Beth Owens each received that greater honor when they were selected from a group of nine nominees as Mr. and Miss ACU. Clay, a marketing major from Abilene, was the vice presi- dent ofthe Students' Association his senior year, an SA senator for three years and a member of the Student Ad- visory Board. He was perhaps more well known, however, for his roles in dramatic productions on campus. Clay had roles in four Homecoming musicals, playing the lead in "South Pacific" and "Shenandoah," Beth already had received one honor, being selected as the 1982 Homecoming Queen. She was an all-levels physical education major and a cheerleader for four years. Beth also was a member of Sigma Theta Chi social club, the National Education Association and Texas Student Teachers Association. The other nominees for Mr. and Miss ACU were Nelson Coates, Paul Hancock, Rob Sellers, Larry Nelson, Dita Keesee, Polly Robinson and Elise Smith. Several of the nominees explained why they believed Clay and Beth were j, M .- k J pw, iiiir A xl 2.1 i,,i X ',', 'aa S sy, l Mb? selected. "Beth is the kind of person that you go through ACU Cwithl and think you want to be like." said Dita. "She always has time for everybody, She really exemplifies Miss ACU." Paul said, "Beth is the kind of person who makes everybody feel at ease and feel like theyre an important per- son." Paul described Clay, his roommate, as "one of the most giving people I have ever known." Nelson said that Clay was a multi-talented individual who wasn't afraid to become involved in many different areas. - jackie Tzzhlw 386 f Mr. and Miss ACU 'S xl.

Ex- cluding the editor, four people were second-year staff members, and the rest of the staff included first-year members. In the early going, things were sometimes complicated for the staff, especially the grid the editor designed. Even he had trouble at times figuring out the grid system. ' The time involved producing this yearbook was too much to even count, but to give you a hint, normal was listening to the hits of 1721 at midnight and saying, "We're just getting started." Every staff had its little idiosyncrasies, and this group had some real la-las. Between jackie Tubbs talking about the grandiose effects of being "unified," staff rap sessions about "chew-head" and Rodney Goodman taking a stand on every issue, the staff managed to find enough time to work on the book. And the person who found enough time for the book, the staff and everything else she had to do was adviser Cindy Stocking. Her door was always open to all of us, and nobody could keep up with her one liners. Even though we all won't be together again, we can remember all the "floating boats" and "flipping switches" and be especially thankful the book finally went to the printer. - Charles L.

This book, in a way, has become a part of me. Through the course of putting it together I've worked, cheered and cried over it. I wanted this book to reflect mostly what ACU all about - friends. I hope this book will, for yearsto come, bring back memories of friends each of you had. And, undoubtedly, my friends got me through this experience. 1 ,,g5 I appreciate the students who gave me their suggestions lliyecause many times those suggestions spurred an yrr idea that eventually ended up on a page.

Thinking back through the school year, it was hard to- remember where all the time went to. Some of us' couldn't remember doing anything else but studying, while an unfortunate number couldn't remember studying at all. The proof showed up sometime in late May, too. We'll mostly remember the things that we spent the most time being involved with, whether it was a stage production, someone we dated or even a yearbook. The time we spent with different things was what changed and shaped our perspectives, and we've tried to recall as many ofthe events, conflicts and everyday happenings in this book that had a part of our lives during the school year. Since the opening article was written, we have witnessed the first American woman in space as Sally Ride flew on the seventh shuttle mission. Meanwhile, the Pope made a visit to his struggling home country of Poland, still suppressed under martial law. The war in El Savador began to heat up as the first American serviceman was killed and that little Central American country began to remind the American public of a small Asian country called Vietnam. We had watched on television during the winter, the record snowfalls across the country. As summer began to set in, we those record snowfalls turn into record floods.

As we looked back, we realized just how important time was Time - one of the elements of existence that we could never hold on to, never touch. It kept us going all the time, even though we seldom had enough of it. It brought us closer together, and it drew us farther up apart. Our perspectives changed with time, whether we liked it or not, and we would never again be the same. It helped us grow - time did. It could make us stop and pray, and would eventually make us old and gray. Time - it did not wait for usg we somehow had to try to keep the pace. And if we did not stay in stride, we might have lost more than we found. Time - it did not let us go back to change mistakes. It snatched the present away into the past like a thief, though we would always have memories. Thank God for the memories. We hoped there were more good ones than bad Time M- it got us caught in the middle of some things, and WC never stopped to think that those moments would not always be. Besides we couldnt stop too longg there wasn't enough time. Friends in time, would become long ago memories, and names would begin to falter at our lips while faces became ever more vague. Time we it sometimes felt like a curse, yet surely it was a gift. We realized that we would have to use it wisely for we would never get another chance - there wasnt enough time. V Charles L.

Our thoughts and dreams are for the future, our past we must let go. Yet, we think of memories of friends we've shared through a year that has suddenly come and gone Together we grew and together we fell, but we rose again to see where we went wrong. The old now must be laid aside as a new day begins to shine, To help us see clearly the road aheadg for if we seek, then we shall find. 4 Charles L. Pullen
