Health, Physical Education, Recreation Top: Lynn Lutrell participates in intramurals with Old Men during the basketball championship. Bottom: Group picture. 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.
