Looking for a change During the late 19705, Sub T-16 was known as a group of uys who were always looking for a way to buck the system. '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.
