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?'
