The administration made me do it. They held my paycheck over my head and threatened to send it to Billy Graham if I didn ' t produce this yearbook. Personally, I think it ' s dirty, done in bad taste, has vulgar words in it, and obscene pictures. It should be a great yearbook, but remember, I didn ' t want to do it. Every dirty thing in this book is the imagination of our administration. God will not like them anymore. But being an humble person by Nature, I will take all the credit for this book. I would really hate to see our administrators lose their jobs simply because they have bad taste. Me, I ' m out of a job anyway, so what does it matter? My future isn ' t as important as theirs is. Broughton always did look like a nice place to live. And since I am taking the credit and responsibility for this yearbook I want to thank the powers that be for giving me freedom of the press and the freedom to produce what the administration feels the students will appreciate and like. This book is done for you, the students. By doing this book we hoped to please the majority of the students on the ASU campus. And so, if any of you students would like to express your opinions about this book (please, my bones break easily), send your comments to the Rhododendron offices, in care of the State Hospital, Morganton, N.C. JY - Miriam West Editor-in-Chief (of this trash) National Lampoon 1 Everywhere I look I see another G.D. ism poking its ugly snout into my business, uprooting a lot of unsound ideas about God and love and grocery bags until I want to shout, " That ' s it!

We ' ve got to do something, and the sooner the better. No time for panty waist, ad hoc syllogisms or post-fetal dream schemes. Everyone ' s waiting with bad breath already. We need to take a stand now. A grandstand! Let ' s see, there ' s one in Philly, and how appropriate; just in time for the last Bicentennial minute and the most disgusting ism of all, " commercialized patriotism. " Boo! Boo! to you who do still cover your heart with your hand. See where it ' s gotten you? Defended by Bert Parks and Paul Harvey! (Makes me want to tie-die Kate Smith ' s bra and wear it as a back pack!) And so I say arise. Arise and give your cheeks a break. Faint heart never won Hollywood Squares in this or any other epoch.

National Lampoon 3 Embarrassing Moments in History 200 YEARS AGO TODAY American History is filled with humorous situations, particularly the Revolutionary War. This almost eight year long struggle was permeated with incidents, most stemming from the disorganization of our forces, especially the militias, and the typical fun-loving spirit of the American people, no less evident then than now. Most of these anecdotes, possibly not so hilarious then as they are today, will be lost forever. To avoid total amnesia of the lighter side of American History, here we present true facts, embellished as they may be, for your education. The war was almost begun prematurely in Boston with an event infamously tagged - " The Boston Massacre. " British soldiers were sent to Boston to act as police. These men were scattered throughout the city in rented quarters, rather than in common barracks, and this led to constant quarrels with the citizens. Bostonians have never been known to enjoy persecution without revenge, so fights in bars and alleys were common. One afternoon, some citizens allowed their usual ostracization to escalate into a full-scale snowball fight. Soon, some rebel decided rocks flew better and so exchanged ammunition. Tempers rose, and the group turned into a mob. Taunting and harassing the soldiers, soon shots were fired into the crowd. Five citizens died as a result. Rumors ran rampant and soon this " massacre " inflamed the people to the point that they poured out into the streets and the militia was called out. Quick action by G overnor Hutchinson quieted things down, though. which was quite lucky, as they were almost five years early. To say the battle of Trenton was chaotic would be an understatement. Four thousand men ran from house-to-house and marched up and down the streets in the rain, hail, sleet, and snow. As the British marched through the town, they readied their muskets in anticipation of the enemy. The Americans were ready, however. They hid in the attics of houses on the streets, and took pot-shots at the foreigners as they marched by. The British were helpless as their guns were wet and wouldn ' t fire. Yankee ingenuity pulled us out and struck a powerful blow to British morale. Washington moved in with his troops and we won the battle. To think that three regiments of England ' s finest were forced to surrender to a handful of rough-shod militia roused the Americans, and the militias grew rapidly. A rather embarrassing incident pre- ceded the demoralizing defeat of the American forces at Camden. Billed as " the most disastrous defeat ever inflicted on an American army, " at least partial blame can be placed on the unfortunate condition of the soldiers. General Horatio Gates ordered full rations for his men the night before their intended charge. Unable to get the rum he had promised his men, he settled for a different " medicine " sourghum molasses was brought down from Virginia, and his men feasted (?) on half-cooked meat, bread, and corn meal mush mixed with the molasses. This had a rather potent effect on their digestive tracts, and when it came time to advance, the soldiers were literally caught with their pants down. At the battle of Princeton, the Americans pulled yet another sneaky trick. British General Cornwallis had forced Washington and his troops into somewhat of a trap. Night fell and Washington had been able to hold off the enemy. This was little consolation, though, because he knew that the rest would bring another charge at dawn, probably ending in his defeat. In a valiant, although whacky, attempt to win, Washington decided they must escape during the night. He assigned 400 men to dig trenches, making lots of noise, to fool the British. Tremendous bonfires raged throughout the night to strengthen the hoax. At one a.m., the troops departed. The wheels of the cannon and wagons were wrapped with rags to make them silent. Muskets were handled carefully, and orders passed by whisper. The entire army escaped down the road immediately in front of the British lines and fled to safety in the dark. No doubt you ' ve heard of that great American hero, Paul Revere. Well, old Paul really enjoyed his evening, yelling about the redcoats and all. According to the history books. Revere was not really the savior. Another citizen was appointed to warn the city in the event of an attack. Revere decided he wanted to help, so he followed close behind. Apparently, the bars were rather crowded, as Revere stopped at about four or five taverns. When the redcoats finally arrived. Revere was found drunk in the streets, and captured. 4 National Lampoon Dear Readers: Thought that I would write and let you know that Dad is getting along fine, he only limps on election days now. Contrary to rumors, he is not getting a face-lift; he ' s trying to save all the face he can. David and I are getting along famously (we held hands again this week). Love and kisses, Julie and David E. Sirs: Great is our bliss and blessed is our campus. Our infirmary ' s doctor maintains that he ' s never seen a case of syphillis here. Our chancellor has never heard of a case of rape at ASU. And a bicycle race across the state is beginning in Boone. Surely Liebnitz was right; this is the best of all possible worlds. Doctor Pangloss Sirs: In response to your personality profile on me last month, I wish to note that I arrived on your campus long after the football team lost its fight. I did not eat it. E. Gibbons Sirs: Since I first got into the multi-media business, I have never seen such structured chaos — sound, sight and odor-wise — as Appalachian State University. It is a pleasure to be here. Marshall M. McCluhan Sirs, All in all, I would say, this year ' s Rhododendron fills a much-needed void. T. Capote Sirs: It is with great pride and genuine warmth that I make this announce- ment to the pig-dogs of American society: there is another man in my life besides Charles Manson. It all started innocently enough with my protest over my earlier failure to subpoena Charlie as a witness in my trial. I refused to enter the courtroom under my own leg power at that point. That ' s when Mr. Right came into my life. That pig-dog fascist judge assigned Mr. He-Man Big Muscles to carry me into court each day. Secretly, I stopped protesting the point early in the trial, but enjoyed the bodily contact so much that I kept up the act. Now we are engaged to be married as soon as I am released from prison and after Mr. Right burns the Supreme Court in effigy. Don ' t tell Charlie. He might do something drastic. Love, Squeaky P.S. We ' re going to name our first child Gerald. Sirs: I can ' t take it any more. Every time I tell a lie my nose grows another inch. Already I have the best hung nose in Watauga County, and the end is nowhere in sight. My problem regards my nose. I have had a large number of indecent proposals from campus coeds, which I don ' t mind, but lately I have come to the conclusion that they only love me for my nose. What can I do? R. Nixon Sirs: Lately I have experienced the most unusual behavior. Every time I hear Gerald Ford ' s name mentioned, I break out into uncontrollable fits of laughter. The public library has threatened to take away my library card, and NBC is trying to hire me as a one-man laugh track. I ' m not a traitor, am I? S. Ervin Sirs: After all, who is the bull goose loony here? Chief Broom starts an escort service to save potential rape victims. He wants to tone things down, avoid a scare, a panic. Has the Chief been undergoing shock treatment? Next, he ' ll have his geese forming vigilante committees to round up all blacks on campus after dark. Sometimes I get a great notion to choke Chief Broom. Cuckoo K. Kesey Sirs: Imagine what it ' s like, being one of a kind, an endangered species in this area. I have no one to discuss my troubles with, no one to enter into consultation with, no one for empathy. It all makes me sick. Why can ' t we have another campus doctor here? We could hire a full-time doctor and make a beginning towards establishing a campus dentist on what the popular programs committee spent on Linda Ronstadt and tried to spend on Stephen Stills. What will I do if there ' s a buddy-check? Dr. E. Ashby Sirs, I am in love with my Philosophy professor who is not of my religion or nationality. He is divorced, a hard drinker and thirty-five years my senior. Do you think I should marry him, and if so, what color dress should I wear? Baffled Sirs: What kind of school is ASU anyway? The flavor of books in the campus library is strictly cottage cheese. I haven ' t eaten this blandly since my apprenticeship days in Pat Boone ' s private library. Hey. I ' ve come a long way up the ladder. I ' ve paid my dues. You don ' t do this to a worm of my standing. Perhaps you folks don ' t know the rules. Perhaps labor management would like to hear about my situation. Stop putting so much attention on the woolly worm and get back to basics, man. It ' s all a hoax, anyway. Every worm knows that. Just a good PR man in the woolly worm stables. So wise up. Spice up the content. Increase the pagination. You ' re building a reputation of drab. Concerned, A. Book Worm National Lampoon 5 ' -.! ? fe ' • , Tales of Indigestion, Heartburn, and Diarrhea FOOD SERVICES A GUT ISSUE The Appalachian jjourmct has a vast variety of culinary experiences from which to choose awaiting him on campus. Perhaps the most expensive (j)er volume) nutriment facilities are the numberous quick-snack machines scattered about the campus like reslrooms. At these machines one may purchase candy-bars, such as Grounds, Reese ' s Cups (3b-C). Mr. GiH dbad, or others. Some machines also dispense cheat crackers and peanutbutter crackers. Other machines merely dispense with the hungry snacker ' s appetite (or his money). The drink machines available contain canned drinks (two cents worth of can and eleven cents worth of Dr. Pecker, Peppi, Mt. Drew or Roca Rola) for thirty cents. Gum (arable) and occasional sandwiches (for all occasions, perhaps, except meals) are also available. Popcorn, peanuts and cookies fill a few of the better machines, and if you ' re not averse to the old tilt method, some of these machines provide lots of action. Unfortunately, crowds often congregate about these machines, the greatest concentration of which may be found in the Appskclter in the student center, and discuss marinated moon pies or the proper wine to accompany milk. When these unfortunate episodes occur, the hungry App may have to resort to the more stable munching facilities on campus, such as the ice cream bar in the Appskeleton, where many flavors of fro en milk arc available, along with G.I. coffee and doughboynuts or cigarettes (for the light eater). Another place (designated nutritive c onsumption area, for those in the College of Human Learning and Development) one can find a nutritious meal is the Bavarian Inn (B.I. or Grease Hall), where overpriced hamburgers, yogurt, drinks (non- alcoholic, of course), pies, pi . ,en and French Flies are served round the cIcKk, round the table and rounded off to the nearest five dollars. The university provides entertainment in the form of a soulful juke box and Monlc uma ' s Revenge. For the discriminating feeder, the university cafeteria, managed by Genghis Khan and Herod, offers vegetables, frozen fruit, meat, desserts, milk and other assorted miracles of the kitchen. The lines are never longer than two hundred feet, the food never worse than a jack rabbit caught in a window fan. One of the invigorating novelties of the cafeteria is the noise, perhaps the loudest anywhere on campus, with the possible exception of the B.I. (see previous box score). In the cafeteria, one can dine among students, administrators, professors and hang- on vagabonds just off the North-bound freight (which doesn ' t come within fifty miles of Boone). Jazz musicians, garbagemcn, poets, jocks (the athletes, not the supporters), frat-rats, beauty queens, queens, biM)k worms, hook wDrms, grad students, undergrad studs and an occasional famous person or two can all be seen rubbing salad forks in this well-lit repository of food that you just wouldn ' t believe. The Gold Room. Home of magical fiK)d and the salad bar, land of fiery fudge cake and the rinky-tink piano of David Balfour, sanctuary of mushrotim infested steaks and non-nuclear submarines. With a breathtaking view of the tops of spruce trees and waitresses as gorgeous as Kate Smith and Golda Meir, the Gold Room offers the most convenient opportunity for the hapless undergraduate to dispose of his meal tickets before he knows what hit him. Many famous gourmets, including King Gargantua, Squire Westen, and Linda Lovelace have allowed their names to be used in connection with Appalachian ' s famous Gold Room. " Opulence. " What do you think of when you ' re hungry and you hear that word? The restaurant on the mountain, the Top of the Mark, none other than ASU ' s Center for Continuing Motel Education, where gentlemen in red coats and foxy coeds lead you to your table and serve you steaks, baked potatoes with globs of fresh butter, cream cheese, bacon bits and cloves, but no wine. (That only goes on in the rooms, such as the I ' resident ' s Sweet (oops, indiscretion •♦♦|) You can sit between the huge picture window with its panoramic view of the Southern Highlands and the tremendous mounlainstone fireplace and sip iced tea among conventioning educators (many of whom have not seen a student face to face since Kent State) and swap gossip with state legislators and their " daughters. " You can stand under the black shellacked carriage and listen to the tranquilizing white sound muzak, sit in the chair that Richard Nixon sat in for his coronation and perform you ablutions in the identical rest room used by Robert Penn Warren, Bill Dunlap. John Foster West and Marilyn Chambers. From these examples, you can infer that ASU does not lack for variety of eating places, and no one has ever committed suicide in an ASU refectory. According to all reports, all fatalities in these facilities have been involuntary and unexplained. The Boone Police and AST ards couldn ' t explain thi i ihcy involved parking violatioas. But don ' t take our word for it: hon appetil. ' Put Downs Down Midnight Rituals Rhodo Rejects For six months workmen chopped and dug, poured and pounded, smoothed and poured and pounded more on the east end of Sanford Mall, and the result is a huge, ornate stone fountain, a structure that certainly enhances the campus ' complexion. And the huge circle of stones also has its functional purpose; it is used by the astronomy department to take star shots, thereby predicting eclipses, astral collisions, sidereal occlusions and other miscellaneous heavenly machinations. No doubt the extent of our scientific knowledge will be broadened by the nocturnal calcu- lations that occur among the trilothons and lentils of the fountain. By day, young lovers lounge about the spewing waters of the fountain, soaking up the sun and wind, listening to the sun ' s serenade through the sieve of the frothy spray. All these benefits of the new construction we appreciate and enjoy, yet we feel that we cannot endorse the further activities that occur amid the carefully hewn rock. By night, when the astronomers are abed and the lovers are curled in the waxy fist of sleep, certain celebrants in hooded robes bear torches to the fountains. Chants older than the gods themselves soar like bats among the skeletal branches of the few remaining trees, and the priests and devotees of obscene rites enter the quadrant to enact their grotesque mysteries, to perform their homages to idols on the stones they use for an altar. This periodic performance is an abomina- tion and a slur on the reputation of our university, and we strongly endorse immediate vigilante action to eliminate the barbarous threat to our health, sanity and security. These bearers of the blade raised at midnight must not be permitted to walk among us by day and abduct our precious virgins by night for their profane rituals. They must be halted, and the task is in our hands. Fellow students, arise and erase this blot from our Laundry Services. Take arms amid this sea of troubles and attack! The only group on campus to bring home a national championship was the 1975-76 version of the varsity Reject Team. The squad was comprised (by national requirement) of offbeat, multi-untalented, bottom-of-the- deckers who aspire to make nose- picking the national pastime. This year ' s Reject Team, which coincident- ally doubles as The Rhododendron staff, is captained by none other than Miss Reject ASU, Miriam West, known affectionately by her squad as " fearful Leader. " She is pursuing a fine arts degree in Bungle. Several followers believe that she has fulfilled the requirements for the degree already, summa cum laude. Assistant to the Captain, Don Smith, has equally impressive non-qualifications, dazzling enough to be selected for an unprecedented fourth consecutive year to the All American Reject Team, First Squad. Smith, ASU ' s Fool-in- Residence, also known as Drivel Don, rejected six-figure offers from the NRL to turn pro, opting instead to return to the ASU till where he keeps his hands in gold as business manager of the Rhododendron. Many people are convinced that Smith will be taking a big cut in payola if he signs the six-figure contract. Next in line, the village idiots, the Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee of Tweedledom, the Frick and Frack of misplaced modifiers, the Mutt and Jeff of comic book mentality. Rhododen- dron copy editors, R.T. Smith and Jack Dillard. Not since the days of Amos and Kingfish and the Mystic Knights of the Sea Lodge have two slovenly, shoe-shuffling four-flushers ascended the throne of incompetence with such fanfare. All of Boone and America are cheering in classic Bronx style the perverted antics and the anti-literary hi-jinks of this foul pair of Bukowski disciplines who couldn ' t pick a dangling participle out of a tub of Baptists. It is doubtful whether so much pomp and ceremony choreo- graphed, produced and directed by this pair has ever culminated in such lack of achievement anywhere on the face of this earth. In obnoxiousness they simply have no peers. Picking up the fallen crest of inadequacy at this point and carrying it to new heights are the two layout editors (and they lay-out in all contexts), Brenda Burris and Steve Yaeger, know-it-all laureates as different as East and Mae West. The Botch and Bunkum of the burlesque stage known as ASU, Burris and Yaeger have directly caused the rewriting of all Folack jokes. Masters of buck-passing and buck-spending, these workhorses, on loan from the Washington zoo, form the nucleus of the ASU Reject offensive squad, which was voted " most offensive " by a panel of Avon salespersons from Bundtcake, Nebraska. Completing the first team, resident red-head and Howdy Dowdy lookalike, Mike Dupree, voted most underrated lout on campus by his peers, revels in his perpetration of tedium at ASU. The walls of Workman Hall reverberate with Mike ' s proverbs of inanity. These very walls violate Boone litter laws and probably the first through fifth amendments by displaying Art Editor Mike Dupree ' s juvenile attempts at art that he calls " art Nouveau. " Go ahead and put a fancy name on it, Mike, but it still receives the same criticism: " art no-go. " Normally, a Reject Team makes it or breaks it with its first string, but the level of incompetence and foul-play was so extreme on ASU ' s varsity that Coach McCaskey felt that some due mention should be made of the second string and of the fact that a scrimmage of the two squads was headlined across the nation as the " Reject Game of the Century. " Controversy arose during the quarter-finals of the NCAA play-offs over the status of the staff photographers who hold PhD ' s in Ineptitude. The amateur standing of these squad members was upheld when Editor West revealed samples of their work which dispelled beyond a shadow of a doubt all accusations of their professionalism. The trophy was ours. National Lampoon Downs Downs Downs Downs Paper off the Year The Appalachian, campus newspaper at ASU, was given the singular honor of Student Newspaper of the Year by the John Jay Audubon Society. In a poll taken at the 51st Annual Convention and Suet-Toss, The Appalachian was selected by a majority of bird lovers as the newspaper most frequently used to cover a bird cage bottom. Lost and ? BULLETIN: Broome-Kirk Gym . . . Melinda Lou Pushy, an up and coming freshman at Appalachian State University, was listed missing today by her parents, Claude and Odelia Pushy of Bushy Fork, N.C. Fearing another kidnapping a la Patty Hearst, the Pushys contacted the State Bureau of Investigation, the Salvation Army, Billy Graham, and then attempted to reach Broderick Crawford by long distance. A bit hysterical, Mrs. Pushy related that " Melinda Lou never even spent the night away from home before we brought her to this place, " According to observers Melinda Lou was last seen at registration in Varsity Gym somewhere between the Philosophy Department and Folk and Social Dancing. She was seen at that time pulling her hair and chewing on a number 2 lead pencil. Boone police interrogated all on-the- scene, suspicious characters, infuriating more than twenty professors who were already late for supper. Take Out or Throw Out In a report on campus expenditures, consumer advocate Ralph Nadir unwrapped a discrepancy in funds spent in the ASU cafeteria system. After completing a Gold Room meal of cottage cheese croquettes, marinated left-overs, and Crapple Pan Doughty, Nadir questioned the wisdom of the allocation of $2000 of student fees for the purchase of doggie bags.

Personal Interview With Officer No. 70 (Hang A Cop) JS: Why don ' t you begin by giving us a little personal background about yourself? 70: Because that ' s classified information. JS: How is it classified? flO: As trivial, irrelevant and hypo- thetically incredible. US: But what did you do before you became a guardian of peace, parking spaces and the American way? 70: Well, I spent ten years in the Marines as a mess officer. When I was discharged from the service I became a parking lot orderly with the City of Hickory but rose rapidly through the ranks to become a cop with a badge and gun and a tendency toward astounding statistics. US: Like what? 70: I apprehended more non- offenders than anyone else in the history of the force. I lost more pistols in a year than Barney Fife, and I cut my head with a razor eighty-six times in my three-year effort to precede Telly Savalas as the bald bombshell. US: What, sir, is the foremost duty of a campus security officer? 70: The first duty of an ASU campus security officer is to aid maidens in distress and ameliorate any sexists disputes that may arise within his jurisdiction or plain eye-sight. US: And in the absence of maidens? 70: To make chalk marks on suspicious tires, do wheelies in the Cushman vehicles, put yellow locking devices on any vehicles ' alleged to belong to hippies, impound any recreational chemicals stipulated as illegal by the State of North Carolina, the City of Boone, the ASU Security Office, the Code of Hammurabi or the Order of the Arrow, and to direct traffic away from any area where a fellow officer may be involved in an activity of amorous or obnoxious nature. US: Have you killed a man in the line of duty? 70: In the line of duty? No, I can ' t say as I have ... I did, however, with a double-bladed ax purchased from Farmers ' Hardware, decapitate and thus dispatch an illegally parked horse in front of Whitener Hall. For this act of valour (Br. spelling), I was decorated with streamers, Japanese lanterns, bows and the Congregational Medal of Horror. US: How do you perceive your relationship with the students on this campus? 70: Through sunglasses. US: Have you ever considered yourself an ambassador of good will? 70: No, I ' m as legitimate as the next fellow. US: No, you misconstrue the question 70: I never touched her. She made lewd suggestions, but I never laid a hand on the girl! US: No, wait officer. Let me paraphrase. . . 70: You ' ll have to step into the rest room for that. Innocent exposure is in violation of campus moral code 66666, which also states that it shall be illegal for any adult or college student to wear a mask in public. US: I ' ll put it in simple language: what do you think the students think of you? 70: Well, to benign with, I suppose they see me as a farther figure, a fine fiddle of a man, a lone ranger alert for the major offenses that can begin a revolution and as a counselor who might guide them to a better way of life. US: And what do you think of their fads and interests, for example, transcendental meditation? 70: It will make hair grow on the palms of their hands and drive them crazy. Will also make them important and unable to have Apps of their own some day. US: What about drinking? 70: I ' m against it. It ' s becoming an over-rated feature of our subourbon culture that begins in the formative years. And God does not approve. US: What about the brief costumes worn by the co-eds in the spring and early fall. 70: Now I can ' t see anything harmful in that. A man would have to be perverse to think vile thoughts about those little girls who run about with their tawny underbellies soaking up the sun, their sleek thighs rubbing up enough friction to start a forest fire, their posterior hemispheres hobbling about like two possums in a sack . . . US: Ok, officer, ok . . . 70: Their sleek melons swaying like metaphysical truths ungirded to the elements . . . US: Stop, somebody stop him, call security! 70: Their rosy tongues stroking their prurient lips, their fuzzy . . . 70: Armpits unfurling sensual tendrils in the wind, etc. National Lampoon 11 US: Officer, is there any single important statement you ' d like to close this interview with before we terminate this interview? 70: Yes, support your local police. The life you save may be your own. Execute Manson. Canonize JAWS. Legalize howitzers and vote " no " in eighty-foh. Wallace for King. US: (In conclusion, we asked the following question to Lary Gorgon, Head of Campus Security): Sir, what will happen to the apparently deranged officer 70? LG: In concurrence with our usual procedural method and conjunc- tion with university regulations, my whim, and the will of God. he shall be promoted.

Froneyberger yesterday took his life attempting to pay off ASU traffic fines before graduation. Froneyberger, a four year resident of Ivy Hall, gave his eighth pint of blood this week to Appalachian South Blood Bank in an effort to raise enough funds to clean his slate at the traffic office, and in so doing, pushed his life signs past the danger point. Roommate Rodney Smithwicker related to newsmen how Froneyberger had sold his ' 59 Studebaker, cashed in his life insurance policy, and raided the Pantry ' s soft drink bottle bin in his unsuccessful drive to pay his fines. ASU officials issued the statement, " We wish all Appalachian students were as dedicated to compliance with our traffic ordinances.

As a member of this committee, you will be asked to scrutinize carefully the nude bodies of the hundreds of volunteers. It will be your responsibility to ascertain the relative merits of each body as you conduct private interviews firsthand. You will be allowed to take photos at your discretion to enable you to fulfill the obligations of the post. Sincerely, Larry Edwards Chm. ArtDept. B. Y.O.N. Dear Second-Semester Freshman, Your pre-iegistered schedule has been accepted by the computer as complete. Every first choice course you requested was filled to your time specifications - no Tuesday-Thursday classes, no classes before twelve o ' clock or after three p.m., optional Friday lectures. In addition, each professor you designated personally requested in writing your presence in his section. It certainly is an honor to have you here at ASU. Dear Student, The campus observatory will hold private sessions this year, and you are one of a select few who will be allowed to participate in our " Gaze at the Heavenly Bodies " astronomy series. During the hours of 9 PM to 1 AM, our telescopes will focus on some of the shapeliest of the celestial formations. From the observatory, for example, every dorm window on campus is visible. We invite you to check out our new telephoto lens as we zoom in on the Big Dipper or Lapis Buns. As always, The Science Dept. Dear Students, Whitener Hall has received a truckload of X-rated films by mistake. They will be shown for a month and then be auctioned off to students. Administration Defendant No. 195-A-301, Narc.

It has been brought to the attention of the Superior Court that the kilo of evidence being held for your case was (but never do) misplaced during this year ' s annual Police Officer ' s Christmas Ball. All charges have subsequently been dropped. Dear Student, The Traffic Bureau of ASU proudly recognizes the major role you have played (and paid) in the last three years at ASU in making the Christmas bonuses for traffic cops so large. The board of directors has deemed it fitting, therefore, to name the new undergraduate parking lot in your honor. Ribbon cutting ceremonies will be held at your earliest convenience. Dear Student, T he registrar ' s office has uncovered a mistake in your favor. Last semester it was recorded that you received a letter grade of D in all your major subjects. Recently updating your file, we noticed a discrepancy. Your grades were in fact all A ' s. With this correction we removed your name from academic probation. The Dean of Academic Affairs has sent a personal letter of explanation to your parents and a personal letter of apology to you. As well, you will find enclosed a scholarship application for next semester.

Several bodies are suspiciously stiff and silent. Nurse Snook calls out a name periodically and patients shuffle through doors marked " In Case of Emergency, Use Other Door.

At this point, a Clara Barton of the freshman class steps forward to assist the body. One by one the patients are treated until only two forms are remaining. Nurse Snook reappears.

Purists cry " curriculum " or " faculty. " A minority of savants promote the library and the number of available volumes as the only criteria by which to measure an institution of higher learning. Other factions offer for consideration the reputation of the graduate school, the number of incoming transfer students, the average yearly earnings of graduates, and, occasionally, the football coach. Recently, however, a covey of upstart leftovers, a misguided group with recurring dreams of legitimacy, has proposed the layman ' s point of view. It is the group ' s contention that the best way to judge a university is not by scrutinizing the subject matter within the walls of any great institution but by scrutinizing the very walls for those telltale signs of notability. Spokesman for the group and compiler of a one thousand page tome of bathroom homilies and blasphemes. Porter Farce justifies the proposal. " We seriously doubt that every student on campus has waxed eloquently on Keats, or Kant, or Bernoulli ' s Principle. We doubt that the entire student body of any university has stepped foot in a library. We even have misgivings about whether or not the entire body of students has ever been awake at the same moment, but we have no doubts that every student has seen the insides of a bathroom stall. " Convincing enough. Every school has a few home-spun philosophers who prefer the shadows of anonymity and the form-fitting seat of the porcelain throne. Every man and woman alive, presumably, has gripes, complaints or curses to register, albeit perhaps, away from the public eye. Probably every serious student of life has drawn at least one home-spun proverb from a cinder block wall, a veneer slide-lock door, or a pink marble partition and incorporated the thoughts into his or her own philosophy and probably been better off for it. At a time in history when training a pet rock is sane and spouting Spinoza or Kierkegaard is weird, the world needs more bathroom graffiti to perpetuate the tradition of Plato, Aristotle and Big Bird. We need philosophy that is non-exclusive. Common man needs his medium, too. It is, then, in this vein, in the serious pursuit of purpose that we, the copy staff of the Rhodo, have set about to chronicle the wit and wisdom of ASU stall philosophers as a means of evaluating our university. No seat, no stall door was left unturned in our relentless pursuit of the way it is. We offer our findings to you, the students, the water closet philosophers. Birds do it, bees do it Dogs do it and get stuck to it I do it and hope you do it But damn those who don ' t do it. It matters not what price you ' ve paid, You can ' t get gladness ready made.

Peace of Mind Maharishi Mahesh Yogi descended upon the United States with a commodity known as " Transcendental Meditation " which was conceived and designed especially for the American counter-culture mentality by Hype Inc, a division of Mattel that also brought you " Pet Rock. " With promises of peace of mind, tranquility, and creative intelligence, Maharishi, better known to citizens of Whipdog, Texas, (his actual hometown) as Findley Dunk, carries the message and a fifth of Jack Daniels under his stately Hart, Shafner and Marks cassock. Guru Yogi, whom you may have seen as a losing contestant on the Dating Game years ago, spreads the gospel of the mantram. a form of meditation that utilizes the soothing meditative effect of sound repetition. It has been the practice of the Maharishi and his followers not to divulge the mantra publicly on the sacred grounds that a plague of lip warts would descend upon the revealer and all his close friends. The copy editors of this book decided, warts or no warts, the truth must be known, so we hired a complete stranger to uncover the facts about meditation and mantra. Below is the as yet unpublished account of his probe. Procedure: Meditator is to sit on a rug in an upright position with legs crossed and with arms resting on the legs, palms upward. Meditator closes his eyes and begins deep breathing. Then, for approximately twenty minutes he repeats his mantram as revealed by his meditatee or guru, concentrating on nothing but his breathing and the repetition of the mantra. The most widely used mantram, developed a millenium ago on a Boy Scout camping trip to the Tibetan grass lands, is the Buddhist chant " 0-wah, tie-goo. Siam. " This mantram should be repeated smoothly and softly until the meditator sees the light. The Damndest Thing Happened A tragic event occurred on the campus of Appalachian State University when eight students, celebrating a crucial football victory died suddenly in a bizarre tale of terror. Al Grosserman. roommate of one of the male victims, related to newsmen the unusual details of the tragedy, " I tell you it ' s the damndest thing I ever saw. The tube was on, President Ford was getting ready to speak to the country; everybody in the room was loose, but appeared to be healthy. I stepped into the John to void myself, and when I returned, dead bodies were strewn all over the place. It is my understanding from reading the investigative reports that death occurred just after President Ford tripped over a network power line and swallowed his microphone. " The Coroner ' s report filed in Watauga County Courthouse revealed that the students were victims of an irrestible urge to laugh themselves to death.

ASU AFTER HOURS I ■ ' he new mountain " sign " ■ announcing the existence of ASU to the world is becoming known as Appalachian ' s answer to Stonehenge. The edifice is probably representative of an equal amount of mystery and savagery as the structure on Salisbury Plain. The proper place for worship at ASU seems to be the gymnasium. Appalachian is reported to have more square feet of sidewalk per library book than any college in the state. A recent survey which appeared in The N.C. State Pulp Times on sex on college campuses revealed that perverse sexual activity on the graduate level had reached an all-time high. Interesting. Especially when you consider that the article next to this survey headlined, " Graduate Assistants Take Big Load Off Faculty. " Next year will be the first year that beer can be sold in Boone. (It will also be the year that mysticism is offered as a course in the math department, Mohammud Ali becomes king of France, Burt Reynolds has a sex change operation, and Boone landlords under- charge students and repair broken pipes in the same week that they break). A bumper sticker that caught the attention of one staff- writer read " Light the world with your faith, burn the church 4 of your choice. " Then there ' s the one about the Boone Police Department in which a previously required intelligence test was dropped from the books. It seems the department could not find anyone who could grade it. Doc Ashby tells the one about a recent freshman coed who came to him for advice. She wanted to know if you can get pregnant by four or five guys in the same evening. We want to know if she is curious about sixes or sevens. We would also like to know if Ashby came to any conclusion that afternoon. The heist of the century occurred fall semester in Broome-Kirk Gym locker room where 25,000 athletic supporters were pilfered in broad daylight. Funny thing though, the theft went undetected for two months. Whoever made the heist must really have " a lot of balls. " A special thanks went out to Doctor Evan Ashby from Justice Dorm and the football team for his special efforts in helping to spread a lot of happiness on the ASU campus, in the back seat of station wagons, and the baseball dugouts. An inside source at Belk Library informed our staff that each year between 12 and 20 students are actually caught engaging in sexual intercourse in the stacks. What we would like to know is how high do they stack? and do you have to have a library card to join? Hear the rumor going around? Some freak slipped into the cafeteria and spiked the spaghetti sauce with his own hand- picked mushrooms. Officials became suspicious when students came back for seconds. Apologies go out to ASU ' s resident old man and harmonica virtuoso, Robert Bradshaw, a fixture on the Bookstore Wall of Fame, who was hauled in inad- vertently by Boone police on charge of singing obscene ditties to passing freshmen co-eds. Although after looking at the three complainers, the chief of police dismissed the charges immediately as a case of simple inarticulation and wishful thinking. On the final exam for a driver ' s ed. course the question was posed, " If you were traveling down the mountain on 421 to Winston-Salem at the speed of 55 m.p.h. and your brakes gave out and your emergency brake proved ineffective, what would be your next course of action?

" Blowing Rock offers several popular le-houses for the week-end inspection and njoyment of Appalachian students and lieir dates. Among the foremost of these eputable establishments is The Villa daria, whose mock-Spanish arches and ornices welcome those attracted by dim ights and loud rock music. The Villa, as he establishment is more familiarly nown, is most reknowned for the lasement area, where the cultured ollegian may cluster amidst the smoke nd noise to exchange the newest news and he oldest jests. The finest beers and ales ire available at the Villa, and the itmosphere is thickened by the hustle- cene aura emitted by both males and emales travelling in groups of three or The Library Club in Blowing Rock is the home of juke box jivery, small talk politics, and beer guzzling revelry, and you don ' t need a library card to check out the place. If you have one dancing bone in your body or the gift of blarney in your tongue, you owe it to yourself to mingle with your contemporaries. You just might find the outdoor furniture, the elevated dance floor, and the " damn good " sandwich to your liking. There ' s no doubt that you ' ll like the parade of fresh warm bodies that passes by your table. If your bag is beer, the bump, or butt beholding, drag your butt to Blowing Rock. Some nights the Library Club is better than a good book. For the counter-culture cruiser. Holly ' s tavern provides the most comfortable climate. Whereas The Villa often features live rock and soul bands, the only live music at Holly ' s is the new bluegrass, with its fiddling and banjo picking. Customers sit at huge oak tables, lean back in their ladder back chairs and discuss the absurdities of philosophy courses or the confusions of adolescent psychology. Holly ' s, like all the other thriving night spots of The Rock, has its game machines, but they are not so frequently used nor so numerous as those of The Villa. One of the most attractive features of Holly ' s is the villainous Holly ' s hot dog or chili dog. A night on the town in the mountains is hardly complete without a cold mug of Bud or Schlitz and a tasty ' Holly ' s dog. would Warren Beatty wine and dine a campus beauty? Falling Water Motel, you say? Perhaps. But if your idea of dining consists of something more than forbidden fruit, you might take your Eve to the Smoketree Inn, the last word in gourmet dining. Located outside of Linville just off of Highway 105 and adjacent to Smoketree Lodge, the Inn features tasty morsels for every hungry epicure. Inside the Inn, high ceilings, exposed beams and wide, stone hearth create a meal hall-ski lodge atmosphere that arouses hearty appetites only the Smoke- tree chef can appease. The walls of Smoketree Inn have recently become a showcase of the works of local and semi-local artists as the proprietors have sought to unite the craft of the canvas, the art of architecture, and the majesty of the natural landscape. The attempt is commendable. :l-v " Where within easy access of Boone ®®£m The real treat, however, comes when the customer is led to a reserved table where he is seated by the hostess. Then and there he is tempted by the menu ' s selection of entrees before he proceeds to the appetizer buffet and salad bar. Chunk ham, artichoke hearts, French onion soup, edam and gouda cheese, and homemade loaves of bread are spread over a long oaken table as the feast unfolds. The next course consists of garden fresh vegetables, tossed and topped with a tasty dressing. Shortly, the main course arrives by way of an elegant waitress. The main entree — your choice of New York strip, prime rib, rib-eye, or red trout — is served with a buttered baked potato and green bean almondine.

APPALACHIAN MEN INTERVIEW BURGESS MEREDITH a candid conversation with a former ' Penguin . If this diminutive veteran of stage, screen and television was seen frolicking behind a hollow tree with a poke sack over his shoulder, he would most certainly be fair game to opportunists of the Irish descent. In his knit tobaggan, denim jacket and jeans, and small elfish mocassins. Burgess Meredith strongly resembles any one of the " little people. " the leprechauns right down to the pointed ears. Though he is small in stature, he is long in talent. His credentials reveal a remarkable longevity in the business — his career spans more than forty years. During that time he has appeared in major productions on the stage, in motion pictures and on television. Presently, between film roles he is touring college campuses with flutist Charles Lloyd in a presentation of readings from Carlos Castaneda, the Vedas, MIND GAMES, and other introspective works and of music from the virtuosity of Charles Lloyd. Possessing a highly recognizable face and a familiar voice. Burgess Meredith is not exactly a household name today unless you consider the fact that he is the number one citizen of Stokely. U.S.A. and the voice-over of Stokely peas commercials. The role that made him most accessible to the general public was his portrayal of The Penguin on the weekly BATMAN series of shaped during the Thirties and Forties and carried into the Sixties and Seventies. Today, a consummate character actor who has mastered enthusiastic eccentric por- trayals, Meredith was a famous name on Broadway in the Thirties in such produc- tions as Robert Sherwood ' s IDIOT ' S DELIGHT and Maxwell Anderson ' s WINTERSET, a play which he later followed to the screen. A leading man in films of the Thirties and early Forties, Burgess Meredith perhaps made his finest sustained contribution to the industry in Steinbeck ' s OF MICE AND MEN (1940), generally considered a film masterpiece. Meredith has appeared in the films of Otto Preminger and John Huston with such stars as Clark Gable, Norma Shearer, Lon Chaney, Jr., Gregory Peck, Michael Caine, and Jane Fonda. His long list of films includes THE CARDINAL (1963), HURRY SUNDOWN (1967), MacKENNA ' S GOLD (1969), SUCH GOOD FRIENDS (1971), and more recently THE DAY OF THE LOCUST (1975). The following interview is transcribed from a tape of an open interview subsequent to Meredith ' s presentation " Visions of Power. " The bulk of the interview relates to the Casteneda reading, and the exp loration of the inner world (or " psychonautics " as he refers to it). AFP MEN: Is the pursuance of power (Yacqui Indian terminology) from Casteneda ' s THE TEACHINGS OF DON JUAN the same as the acceptance of fate? MEREDITH: Acceptance of fate has a dour kind of vision to me. Let ' s get down to the power they ' re talking about, it seems to me a power in which you would not want anything but what is happening. You don ' t want to be anyplace else but where you are. A warrior just accepts everything as a challenge. I don ' t think I have a clue to the answer to that. I just simply think that happiness and fulfillment must lie in achievement of some sort of power that he talks about. I think also this is the age of the seeking, trying to put the first man on earth, as it were. A new book that ' s out by Adam Smith covers the whole range of this seeking. POWERS OF THE MIND shows the rising research of the subject. AFP MEN: Do you have a far-reaching ulterior motive behind this presentation? Are you trying to accomplish something? MEREDITH: Once we accepted the challenge, why, then it became very interesting to us. We ' re doing it for a brief period to see how it works. We get more out of it than anybody, and we touch a few people. AFP MEN: How has it worked for you? MEREDITH: Each time we perform we learn something, and each time we become " I just simply think that happiness and fulfillment must lie in achievement of some sort of power... " " A warrior just accepts everything as a challenge. " " There is that other world, if you can somehow get through it. It ' s only sepa- rated by the flimsiest of screens... " INTERVIEW (CONTD.) more aware of what ' s working for us to meet the challenge of getting the word across. As we go on we find other works that we want to do. I felt very happy about tonight ' s performance. The fact is that we like to hear from the audience. I would like to say that it always seems like a long way ahead to me. I think that getting there as they say is half the fun. 1 don ' t think you ever arrive at the fullness, even the state of high indifference. There ' s this man Merrill Wolfe I read still seeking and finding every moment of his search. It ' s beautiful. It ' s quite an inspiration to meet people like that. They never feel they have attained it, I suppose, until the final time when they shake off this coil, so to speak. APP MEN: Can you experience meditation with the intellect? MEREDITH: According to the sages there is very little you can experience intellectu- ally or define it as you come back. There is that other world, if you can somehow get through it. It ' s only sepa- rated by the flimsiest of screens, and still you cannot exactly mark the map or define what it is. Merrill Wolfe tells about those elements which you can remember, as it were. And the main part of it is that the relative world becomes less important or gets into its proper place — the subject-object world. And that you feel unafraid of its problems anymore. And that things balance more easily. APP MEN: How did you and Charles Lloyd join forces? MEREDITH: Well, we live a few houses from each other on Malibu Beach. I was interested in his music and he more or less had heard of me. We began to talk and found we were both reading Casteneda at one time as well as others. He ' s got that flute synthesizer. I began to read, and he began to play. People said, " Hey, " and we said, " Let ' s take a month, try it and see what happens. " APP MEN: Are Casteneda ' s books, in your opinion, based on fact? MEREDITH: Does it make any difference? 1 don ' t know. It doesn ' t any more than in Gulliver ' s Travels. The truth is there. I think he must have met somebody. I don ' t think it ' s important. There are a lot of things in Casteneda that are over-written, but occasionally he really comes through. APP MEN: For somebody who never experienced TM, how would you ever define it or explain it to perhaps try to convince them that its an experience that they also should have? MEREDITH: I don ' t know. Not everybody can follow the same way. I found TM. Merrill Wolfe had kind of prepared me. Merrill Wolfe just hit me like a light. My brain was clarified by that man, so that I was ready. I use all the winds I can get to blow me across. That ' s very effective, the mantra, apparently. APP MEN: How do you feel that your meditation has helped your creative capacities? MEREDITH: I don ' t know. I have no idea. I have done a play or two since. I know one thing that it ' s very good for relaxation. I ' ve been doing creative things for a long time. 1 don ' t always think the illumined man, the man that has seen the transcendentative, is necessarily a more perfect man. I don ' t know. But I think that in time it must mellow me. It makes me happier. I don ' t know how it improves me. Something doesn ' t bother me so much. 1 begin to laugh at things that used to bother me. APP MEN: Do you attribute this achievement just to TM? MEREDITH: I think that it has been a large part of the formulation. I think my friendship with John Lily has been a big experience. And the isolation tanks I ' ve used. I use them a lot in Dr. Lily ' s lab. You lie in a coffin like thing and float in salt water kept at body temperature. That has been a great help. TM is good. Reading is good. I can ' t just reach the state with TM. APP MEN: What precisely, then, is your goal? MEREDITH: It just seems to me the only thing to do is to search for the breakthrough. The knowledge seems to me to be something that is damn intriguing. And who knows but what everything is a kind of preparation of death? APP MEN: Do you feel the discipline involved in your work as an actor helps in the same way to develop your concentra- tion? MEREDITH: No. 1 would think it would be the opposite way. I would think that meditation probably helps acting, but I don ' t think acting helps anything. You ' ve used your motions so falsely for so long, as it were, that it ' s hard for you to say, " Hey, is this an act? " APP MEN: What are you going to work on in the future? MEREDITH: I ' m doing a film. Has THE DAY OF THE LOCUST played here? Did NINETY-TWO IN THE SHADE with Peter Fonda play? Then I ' ve got 2 or 3 others coming out. I ' m going to do a film up in Canada, BURNT OFFERINGS with Karen Black and Oliver Reed. APP MEN: Are you going to work with John Lily in the future? MEREDITH: I ' m going to work with him very closely. We may all do this sort of thing together soon. A very close friend, he ' s dedicated his next book to me, which is quite an honor. rHAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS -Vpp Chancellor Herbert C.

Rally ' 75 was somewhat shorter than previous rallies, but there was plenty of time for students and visitors to enjoy a weekend of partying, Irinking, smoking, and dancing — plenty of time for people to case aside their studies and celebrate. Goose Creek Symphony took the stage at noon on Saturday, May 10th to kick off the weekend of Southern Rock. The seven-man group performed an hour of down-home country rock during which they played such songs as " Plans of the Lord, " and " Hot Dog Daddy. " Following a short intermission, the Atlanta Rhythm Section took the stage to the enthusiastic applause of the audience. Their " down-home stompin ' music " started the rally romp. Frisbees appeared and feet shuffled as the crowd reacted to the music. The group played a wide selection of songs including their hits " Doraville " and " Angel. " At 8 p.m. under red and blue spotlights. Cowboy took center-stage. This group, which had previously performed at ASU in December with the Gregg Allman Tour presented an hour of solid music ranging from rock to country. At last with anticipation rising Elvin Bishop, appearing in full regalia, took the stage. Much of the crowd stood applauding frantically before the first chord had been played, and began to boogie to the driving beat of Bishop ' s guitar immediately. Bishop held the audience captive for two hours as they rocked and danced to the country-flavored rock of the Bishop Band. " Fishing " and " Traveling Shoes " were apparently the most popular performances as the crowd yeUed, screamed, and sang along. " Watermelon " proved to be another favorite as Bishop brought out real watermelons, took a bite himself, and then distributed the rest to the front row of spectators thereby confirming to all that he is just a " country boy " at heart. Two hours of Bishop was not enough for the crowd who called him back for one encore followed by another. During the second encore Cowboy joined Bishop on stage and kept the crowd dancing for another thrity minutes. I ' J(XID Art by Gary Wilson MAY DAY The sun was shining, the sky was cloudless, the grass was green (that being lain upon, i.e. termuda and crab, as well as that being consumed, unless of course one happens to be mong those lucky few who possessed red or gold), and spirits were high for the festivities of day Day ' 75. There was music for the ear, food for the stomach, and bargains everywhere or the pocketbook. May Day Play Day brought out large numbers of students who competed throughout the lay for prizes. Many booths offered prizes of beer. The beer won, however, had to be picked ip at locations off campus (say " The Rock " for instance). Precautions were made to see that he university policy against alcoholic beverages was observed. There seemed, however, to le an unexplained epidemic of beer cans and bottles sweeping the mall after the event. From two until six o ' clock, games were offered to those brave souls who were willing to isk embarrassment to win food or beer prizes. Some of the competition stimulators were vents such as a three-legged race, a pie-eating contest (which developed into a pie-throwing xtravaganza), a bubble gum-blowing contest, and a wheelbarrow race. One of the biggest attractions of the day was the " Art " being produced and sold. An artist et up on the Student Union patio was showing to a fascinated audience his unique method of lainting. Upon completing one of his paintings, the artist would flash a " give me five lollars " smile, get the money, and start on another " work of art. " Tied in with the festivities of May Day was a rally to protest a proposed hike in tuition ncrease. Dr. John Thomas, Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs, spoke of the faculty and he administration ' s part in protesting the proposed tuition hike. The rally began at 12:30 vhen Robert Leak, SGA president, explained the goals of the rally. The band Sheit provided intertainment for the rally. During their presentation. Leak entertained the audience with an mpromptu blues song. The incumbent SGA president also spoke during the rally. PLAY DAY REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS There is a great temptation for the choreographer of modern dance routines to rely on the cute, the obvious audience pleaser, and unfortunately, many of Mimi Garrard ' s compositions fall victium to this trap. In her dance company ' s performance at ASU. Ms. Garrard ' s dancers performed six multi-media routines, all of which were entertaining to some degree, but four of which were shallow, almost trite. Every art form has its schedule of conventions, its expectations and patterns, but this reviewer was unable to discern the key to the code of modern dance through the Garrard company ' s act. " Six, and 7, " a clever lightshow in which the dancers wore digital lights on their heads, evoked electrons and fireflies as a frame of reference, and the background slides bombarded the viewer with the arbitrari- ness of quantifiers. The spectacle and surprise were enjoyable, but the images were disjoint and frustrating through the abundance of sensa happening simul- taneously on stage. The concept of beauty involveds either formal or conceptual resolution or a movement beyond resolution into the realm of the profound. Yet none of these patterns was fulfilled in " Six, and 7. " ourselves by the prominence of the Great God Business. Heller ' s book is essentially a rehearsal of Catch 22, but his material is no longer dynamite, and we have been overkilled by the insistence by novelists that the crazy are sane and vice versa since Yossarian refused to fly any more missions. Gaddis ' big gimmick is the fact that there are scarcely fifty pages-worth of narrative in a 700-plus-page monster. The whole thing is dialogue, and it ' s up to the excessively attentive reader to match up saids with sayers. The plot of the book is simple. JR, a precocious elementary school boy who is attentive on his field trip to Wall Street, corners the market on (not Egyptian cotton) salable but unpublicized items, then sells for Big Money. All this conquest of the fiscal world is carried on from a telephone booth outside JR ' s school. Clever, no? Anyway, the tedious bone-hunt for clues throughout the novel is often humorous, but when the comedy is on break at the water cooler, Gaddis tries to meticulate his reader to death. The book is hailed by those in favor of experiment as one of a kind (!), a successor to Don Quixote, Finnegan ' s Wake and Gravity ' s Rainbow IVIEWS REVIEWS REVI REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS REVIEWS Through " Suite, " " Alia Marcia, " " Phosphones, " and " Video Variation, " this reviewer was carried from constructs of scorpion, sphinx, faun and rorschach blot, but he was never truly moved. The best dance forces the viewer to respond, not just to react, but to participate somehow imaginatively and thythmically, but these compositions failed on that count. " Dreamspace " suited the education of this reviewer. It was an intellectual composition with allusions to Lewis Carroll, Don Juan and Eliots characters who have " measured out (their) lives with coffee spoons. " The costumes and use of props aided the dancers in the execution of a witty but at times penetrating bit of social criticism and left a final pleasant taste in the viewer ' s mouth. This year ' s big block-buster novel is William Gaddis ' JR, a book that took twenty years to write and one that has been awaited with almost the same eager anticipation as Joe Heller ' s second novel, Something Happened. Both books are satirical thrusts at the arbitrary and expedient methods of life- organization we have had thrust upon (Pyncheon ' s mad mouse trap). It ain ' t that good. Believe me. Much of the stir created in contemporary fiction involves that cathartic female liberation novel of exploration, the search for the zipless f k and the new identity of the separated or divorced woman unleashed. Of these books, certainly not novels but disguised diatribe (not a new genre, by any means), the most talked about are Erica Jong ' s Fear of Flying and Judith Rossner ' s Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Though Ms. Jong ' s autobiographically- based heroine, poet Wing, is less adventurous than Rossner ' s protagonist, each seeks a sexual nirvana where identity and dignity can survive. Both books suffer from pretentiousness of narrative and shallowness of characteri- zation. Ms. Jong ' s soul is in especial jeopardy for making her persona a sensitive poet and intellect. In many ways, the reader who supports standards in fiction and sees form and scrutiny as moral responsibilities for the author, as well as seeing content of ethical import, finds himself almost wishing upon the authors the fates of the protagonists, although both return to marriage and death by psychotic swinger do seem a little harsh. 1 1 w% ■ i V n i 1 w A i B THE GREEKS AT ASU INTER- FRATERNITY COUNCIL Progress Through Cooperation NATIONAL FRATERNITY Steve Price -Grand Master Roy Andrews Ty Norton -Grand Procerator Donald Atkinson Terry Atkins - Grand Master of Ceremonies carl Season Tim Vestal -Grand Scribe Steve Benton Jamie Patterson - Grand Treasurer Scott Brown Steve Burhead Eddie Carmichael Dave Churcti Mark Clapp Lynn Edgerton Pete Gustafason Steve Hale George Helstrand Bruce Hensley Tim Howie Scott Hurt Howard Jordar Eric Koerber Herb Martin David Moore Jeff Nance Lonny Over Jotin Roth Jay Sellers Larry Tucker STARDUSTERS Formerly PI KAPPA Penn Croom, No. I Dean Fink, No. II Dennis Felker, No. Ill Robert Davis, No. IV Paul Auten, No. V Robert Hampton, No. VI Jeff Keller, No. VII Randy Graver, No. Vtll Odie Skidmore, No. IX Keith Allison Kenneth Bost Allen Brantley Bob Brassil Allen Green Skip Hill Dell Hinson Rob Holton Jim Hulin Phil Moore Stan Reese Doug Rice Wes Sessoms Dale Terry Randy Terry Dom Varona Dr. Haulk, Advisor Dr. Porterfield, Advisor 23 THE FRATERNITY OF HONEST FRIENDSHIP Sheryl Adams Tara Hartley Susan Reeder Sheila Adams Mary Highfill Sherry Riggs Marcille Ballard Marsha Hocutt Melissa Ritchie Martha Beard Susan Hudspeth Lee Ellen RumpI Ruth Brown Casey Kirby Gail Sisk Mary Browne Terri Lacer Cindy Stager Jo Butler Laura Lupton Jane Thomas Cathy Carswell Nancy Martin Susan Thomas Terry Cutts Jeona Moore Terry Tracy Lou Falls Myra McClure De Anne Wright Joyce Fisher Karen McKinney Carolyn Williams Judy Godley Kathy McKinney Cheryl Busick Barbara Grimes Sandra Norris Anne Coverly Kathi Garrett Pricella Lloyd Dawn Pearman Teresa Blalock David Adams, Brad Adcock, John Allen - High Rho, Rick Alspaugh, Blake Brown, Robert Brown, Art Cameron, Bob Christy, Lynn Carrell - High Epsilon, Mort Dark, Paul Fairbetter, Sam Faust, Charlie Gibbs, Gary Grady - High Delta, Michael Graves - High Tau, Terry Harper.

DM Born in the Cove Creek Community of Watauga County, Mrs. Iva Dean Day moved to Boone at the age of six. She has been here ever since and loves it very much. She attended Boone elementary and high schools but never went to college, er husband was also born in Cove Creek and they grew up together as childhood sweethearts. He teaches eighth grade science at Hardin Part Elementary School. The Day ' s have two children: Brett, 23, who is presently enrolled as a graduate student at ASU, and Lisa, 21, who hasn ' t decided on a college and is presently working in Boone. They are members of the First Baptist Church in Boone. Mrs. Day enjoys her work as Desk Circulation Supervisor in Belk Library. She decided to return to work after her children were in high school and has been employed at ASU for 6 2 years. She feels that the library is highly organized due to the work of Circulation Librarian, Earlene Campbell; Head of Learning, Dr. Al Corum; and Head Resources Librarian, Richard Barker. The library has goals to meet annually and this year they are interested in constructing an addition to the present library to better accomodate ASU ' s growing student body and faculty. The library staff is " here for service " and always working to improve and to help the students and faculty. Mrs. Day commented that the suggestion box is always read and that replies are given when applicable. Mrs. Day thinks the students at ASU " are a great bunch of boys and girls. They are studying more this year and are very sincere. " She enjoys seeing them work and preparing for their lives ahead. She finds that there are very few problems concerning the students and the library. Mrs. Day also thinks that Appalachian is very fortunate to have a " beautiful library for the students to use. " Mrs. Day " always looks on the brighter side of life. Nothing ' s as bad as it seems. " Obviously, she is an optimist, at both home and work. She believes that " if people live according to God ' s rules, a good relationship with Him will always give you an answer to your problems. " Her hobbies are scrapbooks. In keeping these, she has preserved quite a bit of the history of Boone with newspaper clippings and pictures. Horn in the West and Tweetsie are two of these historical aspects that she has done extensive work on. Upon leaving and wishing Mrs. Day a nice day, one of the students who works at the desk commented, " She is a nice Day.

The deer ' s antlers were snagging roots and bushes making the task very arduous. Another hunter, who was from Appa- lachian State, saw their predicament and suggested that the LR hunters pull the deer by the antlers, thus ending their problem. This seemed like a good idea to the LR hunters and after a time, one of the hunters states that point and said, " You know, this was a good idea to drag the deer by the antlers, but aren ' t we getting further away from the car. " Did you follow my advice about kissing your girl when she least expects it? " asked the sophisticated ASU senior of his younger frat brother. " Oh, hell, " said the fellow with the swollen eye, " I thought you said where. n hat is the difference between an LR coed and a fat dog? " asked a sassy phys ed major. " I don t know, " his buddy replied. ' ' Fat dogs don ' t snore. Three doctors from North Carolina schools were discussing the ease of operations on their respective students. Said the first Doctor: " My students at State are easy to operate on. " Being an engineering school, I can zip a student open and everything is coded and diagramed. You know. Part A-1 into Part B-1, and zip them shut. A very easy operation. " Said the second Doctor: " My students at Carolina are very easy to operate on. I can lay them on the table and snip them open, and everything is color-coded and tex- turized. All their systems are different colors, their nervous system is yellow, their digestive tract is green, their circulatory tract is red and so forth. Makes for a very easy operation. " Said the third Doctor: " My students at LR are the easiest to operate on. Shucks, they only have two working parts a n a and a mouth and they are inter-changeable.

Visitors to the rustic Appalachian State University campus are undoubtedly awed by the vast stretches of black asphalt, interlaced with artistic geometric patterns of white and yellow lines; the ever-present, convenient footpaths so characteristic of many of today ' s universities; and the scenic touch of a small, clear pond nestled in among the trees, providing a home for the wildlife that abounds in this area. Ah yes . . . the twin worlds of artistic accomplishment and architectural excellence are carefully intertwined with the beauty of the Appalachians always in mind. And yet, the true appeal of ASU lies in those high-rise dwellings, those castles- in-the-clouds so symbolically called " dorms. " Many students have passed through the twin-glass doors of dorms and into the collegiate paradise beyond. The breath- taking lobbies attract a continuous stream of women - much to the glee of the residents. Shiny, attractive linoleum floors highlight these areas, while some floors are covered with luxurious thick shag carpet. Luxuries in these high rise tenements include hot and cold running water (on occasion), a constant flow of warm, dry air (even in the summer), and windows in all the rooms to allow Mother Nature ' s own air-conditioning, the wind, to flow throughout. What a clever adaptation to ecology. The interiors of these structures are amazingly similar, while their exteriors are astoundingly different. Some marvel at how an architect can design so many dorms of different shapes and sizes, using identical materials (brick and glass with sparse renderings of concrete), and still retain their functional aspects. Most residents spend the greater part of their in-dorm time in their own, private rooms. These posh, roomy cubicles afford a habitat consistent with the quality of education at the university. Obviously, no expense was spared in their construction. Regal linoleum tile covers the floors, wall-to-wall. The pleasing geometric patterns created by skilled craftsmen in the medium of modern cinder block lend an air of sophistication. Such pleasing colors as industrial green, washed-out yellow, Halloween orange, and dirty off-white are tastefully blended by top grade interior decorators with the scheme of the floors and the furniture to give the )verall rustic, " mountainy " appearance, rhose charming, but important feature like he attractive red brick or slate window- iills. the contemporary effect of polished iluminum fixtures and window frames, ind the chic elegance of gossamer-thin, ire-resistant vinyl curtains help to set the jackage off. Nostalgia is expressed by the squeaky netal cots found in some dorms, eminescent of the post-war era. In the ligher-quality, more modern dorms, beds ire built in with the natural look of real vood, very much in tune with ASU ' s )verall theme of natural beauty. Bountiful ihelf space is provided in every room for he vast array of clothing every well- iressed mountaineer owns. The utilized quarters found in some juildings cleverly combine shelf and sleeping space to more effectively utilize ;he area and cut down costs without iacrificing comfort. In some dorms, nifty adders are even provided for a more graceful entry and exit very popular with the ladies! Most dorm rooms have been thought- fully provided with sound-dampering acoustic tile and cinder block walls that permit riotous partying and concert hall orchestration without desrupting the conscientous student next door who may be cramming for his Quantitative Analysis exam. Other rooms have stylish stucco ceilings that add Ivy League touch-of-class. Illumination is provided by glass fixtures in the ceilings. Switches are positioned at convenient locations around the room so students, weary of their late-night literature, can roll over and sleep without the hassle of hopping out of bed. In addition the easy-clean, non-stain formica- topped desks in selected dorms are provided with individual flourescent study lamps. Bulletin boards, featured in some rooms provide space for class schedules, pictures of Mom and Dad, and the dog you left back home. And what room would be complete without several electric outlets? They are an absolute must for residents with stereos, refrigerators, ice crushers, fruit juicers, popcorn poppers, mixers, hair dryers, contraband hot plates, electric guitars, reading lamps, electric razors, hot lather dispensers, or other essential modern conveniences, since extension cords are banned. The mountain view from dorm windows is frequently excellent. Depending upon which side of the dorm one is on, he can can awaken on cold, wintry mornings to peer for hours at the majesty of the hills, valleys, trees and streams, or ogle at non-aesthetic department stores, hamburger joints, signs, parking lots, and the rear views of other dorms. 35 The sometimes overlooked features in these contemporary structures include lobbies on every floor with cold-water fountains and tables for friendly games of bridge or Old Maids, dual dependable hydraulic elevators, bountiful shower space with hot and cold water, gaily and attractively-painted metal shower stalls. Some dorms have ping-pong and pool tables to keep residents physically fit and out of trouble. Comfortable lounge areas with large-screen color television for Friday night dates are standard fare. Laundromat-style washers and dryers are furnished for do-it-yourselfers. Visitation policies are no inconvenience because the Administration is ever mindful of the rights and privileges of students. None of the immature restrictions on entry are enforced here. There are no power- hungry RA ' s and no thoughtless authorities to intr ude on a student ' s " extracurricular activities. " This is one of ASU ' s greatest assets. The Administration realizes they are paid out of student ' s pockets and their parents ' taxes, so they strive to help students in every way possible. Mature college students can attend classes in the morning, study in the afternoon, and entertain guests at night, hassle-free. by Leon Hill A handful of young men moved to Boone in early 1974 and began flying off Watauga County hilltops and mountain peaks. One of these men opened a shop in Boone and began teaching others to fly. Soon, daring ASU students, local residents, transients, and tourists began visiting the Blue Ridge Hang Gliding School in Boone. First they came to satisfy curiosity, ask questions, talk prices, overcome apprehensions; later, to take their first awkward leaps into the sky. Yes, hang gliding fever had finally come to Boone. According to Chris Cox of the Blue Ridge Hang Gliding School, the fever originated on the California coast in the mid-1960 ' s when Chris and Bob Wills flew off cliffs in crude and unsturdy kites of bamboo and polyethylene. These precariously constructed kites were soon improved by replacing the bamboo with aluminum tubing and parachute material for the easily torn polyethylene. By the early 1970 ' s, hang gliding was a well established sport in California and the northern Appalachians. With the aid of Chris Cox of the Blue Ridge School on the Highway 105 Extension, John Sears, Manager of Kitty Hawk Kites on Grandfather Mountain, and scores of other " sky surfers, " hang gliding made its debut in Watauga County in 1975. On September 2, Grandfather Mountain was the site of the 1975 United States Nationals followed by the World Cup qualifi- cation meet on September 8. These are two major events in hang gliding competition. The local hang gliders are beginning to gain the acceptance of local townspeople. Their sport is losing its reputation as a foolish and dangerous endeavor reserved for long-haired " hippies " with nothing better to do with their time. The area hang gliding schools have been most successful in upgrading the sport. By mid-October 1975 the Blue Ridge School had given over 100 lessons with only one minor accident not requiring hospitilization. The Kitty Hawk School had over 120 students with no serious injuries. Because of records like these, the relative safety of properly super- vised hang gliding can no longer be ques- tioned. Who knows, the day may soon arrive when a student at ASU may choose to hang glide for credit through the Physical Education Department.

It ' s, simply, the carcass of a rhinoceros. Rhinos, you say, are not indigenous to the Boone region. Well, try to tell that to a rhino. Actually, the decaying carcass is all that remains of the Bill Dunlap-inspired movement to make the horned herbivorous thick- skinned perissodactylic mammal the school symbol replacing Yosef the Mountaineer. His reasoning was rational enough, " What can you rhyme with Yosef? " The movement was gaining credibility, especially in the Philosophy Department, when little Billy Rivers of Lucy Brock Nursery asked meekly, " What rhymes with rhinoceros? " Bill is back at the old drawing board these days producing validity, but he ' ll be back on the scene soon enough. PIPE DREAM Where do male grad students get off? The Crossnore tweed sports coats, the full Freudian beards, and the six year old Goodwill Hush- puppies have become axiomatic in the evolution of the male student from undergrad to grad. These essentials are hard enough to swallow. Johnny Wadd stuff by now. But what about the imported briar that hangs philosophically from the stern lower lip, the locomotive chugs of ambrosia breath, and the casual cosmic gaze to the stars? Come on. What ' s the angle? What ' s the payoff? When are you guys going to give with the wisdom? When can we expect revelation? Where can we get a good Meerschaum? BELIEVE IT OR ELSE To some people world records are merely reading matter or conversation info. To some, world records are admonished as capitalistic competitive sins. Still others go out and set them. Roger Brianfusser, sophomore music major at A.S.U. in Boone, N.C., is one of the record setters. In a fit of inspiration last week Roger ate 537 egg salad sandwiches at one sitting while his TKE brothers egged him on. When asked, " Why egg salad? " Roger replied, " Because I couldn ' t get tuna. " Good luck to you, Roger, but we still think you ' re a bit soft-boiled. SHUFFLE ON DOWN The entire city of Lubbock, Texas, and selected counties in Utah and Minnesota are picking ' em up and laying ' em down.

NOSE TO THE GRIND Woolly worms beware. Your hours in the limelight are numbered. Sure, the Biology Department of ASU has milked maximum publicity from its brown and black rings winter weather prediction experiments with the hairy one of many legs. But take a deep breath. Woolly. The graduate assistants of the English Department have recently completed a similar study often years that enables even laymen to accurately predict the oncoming end of a grading period. Data collected over the ten year period conclusively proves that there exists a direct correlation between semester ' s end and the physiognomy of freshmen English students. As the grading period unfolds, the noses of freshmen undergo radical changes in skin hue. The color changes range from the normal flesh tone in the first few weeks of school to khaki at mid-term and finally to dark unber the last week of classes. John Foster West regularly shines his head whenever the little hand is on ocher and the big one ' s mahogany. r A THE SHADOW OF YOUR DIGITS Had enough in the way of commonplace shadows on your walls? Have you found that you can no longer mpress the ladies with your bunny rabbit shadow? Is it you who is slipping into the shadows of your sweetie ' s eye? Well, never fear, shadow sculpturists. The Adult Division of Caldwell Community College is organizing a course in advanced wall-shadow figures. The course is designed to instruct the student in rudimentary shadows with emphasis on half time band formations and epic battles. No bunny rabbit stuff here. Bring two bucks and your own hands and fingers to room 225 of the nearest warehouse. No extraneous fingers please. DUD STUDS If you are one of the 3,000 men on campus who was voted by A.S.U, coeds as " Unable to carry a conversation in a wheelbarrow, " or if you suspect you might be a borderline case in this consideration, it might do you well to do what millions of others have done to transpose yawns into yahoos — join Duds Anonymous, an organization inspired by Chancellor Wey and dedicated to the elimination of " ball score " dialogue on dates. Sign up if Pee Wee Reese is your idea of an informed source, or if Curt Gowdy is your daddy. DA works miracles. women women women women women women APPALACHIAN WOMEN It is no secret that history repeats herself, nor is it a secret that recurring patterns provide the astute student of history with an Aristotelian pleasure of recognition. But on the ASU campus, the cyclic nature of time manifests itself in a particularly delightful manner, for the women of ASU are mirrors for earlier prototypes, women who have been remembered by mankind for their particu- lar treasures and poisons. One group of Appalachian women can be seen as Nefertiti, Queen of the Nile. Cool, slender, aloof, these women move in a mist of mystery. The presence of one organizes any crowd; she becomes the nexus, center of the hive, cell of untouch- able honey. Her clothes shape her like the drapery about a painter ' s model. Her eyes are dusty stars burning volcanicly. She walks alone, speaks softly and little, smokes Benson and Hedges. There are four such women in Boone. Next in our catalogue we find Melanie Carstairs: crinoline, pale, fluttery and sincere. She is appalled by the use of harsh language and loves to be coddled and catered to. It is her birthright as a Southern woman to be therapeutically lied to, gently mastered. She frequently seeks out a sorority and is prone to date frequently, though she does not date to be prone. Color her pink. She sells cookies in the student center, is an education major but hopes to get married as soon as she graduates. Melanie is a delightful Sherry, but does not travel well. Despite her pretensions, I think you will be amused by her bouquet. Though ASU harbors many Melanie ' s, it barracks still more Brunhilde ' s. Brunhilde is often a deceptive type, for light years spent on the tennis courts and playing fields of Eton have gifted her with a slimness that, under clothes, might pass for delicacy. But she is as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar. Her hair bobbed short (for convenience in gym showers), Brunhilde travels in packs that roam from racketball courts to the field hockey field, dreaming of Wilma Rudolph. She is, of course, a P.E. major. She will teach P.E. in some high school or junior high or become a golf pro. Her chatter is contra basso and replete with statistics, and her abundance makes one curious about what the P.E. depart- ment does with its xerox machines. Xaviera, too, has her followers here; let us call them " Alice Thomas, " America ' s first known lady of the evening. Alice is an interesting study, for she is nothing if not precocious. Her gum-smacking techniques and beer-swilling strategies would astound a catamount. She is so well-known that she is always slumming, always on the make. She is to be found, of course, at Blowing Rock, enacting her role as pinball wizard or table-hopper, and her equipage is not always characterized by a revealing pau- city. Now, she ' s really " not that kind of girl, " but only the slightest qualifications as prestidigitator are necessary for the guy whose eye she is the apple of. Homer was Greek. So was Sappho. And Plato. Jimmy, too. 1 have no monniker for this girl, unless Arachne will serve. There are four sororities on campus, and women of all persuasions can be found in them. women women women women women women Some even vote Republican. But the typical sorority girl builds her world about men and talk of men. Her dormitory is a powder magazine of energy channeled in two directions: frat boys and the internal politics and jealousies of " sisterhood. " Really, the sorority girls here are not as bad as on some campuses. They are not social climbers (but then there ' s no social tree here). They are not waifs banding together for strength in numbers. They aren ' t even, for the most part, stupid. But they are caught up in a vortex whose logic seems non-existent to the casual observer. Penelope. Weave and unweave. Her true love is at another campus, and she, the only twenty-year-old to ever experience the Real Thing, fends off all suitors and waits for Waldo from ECU (probably in pre-med) or Tippicanoe from Chapel Hill to invite her down for a weekend. She is patient, domestic, condescending to the heathens who prefer lust to love. We leave her working busily at her loon, no, loom. Madame Curie believes in the better- ment of mankind and spends her days and nights in the lab or library or grinding out the little hours in her room. She may look normal, but she is a dedicated scholaress. No one knows much about her. She is a computer, a little prim and probably champing at the bit to have some other subject to study. One of the most populated categories is Bonnie (of " Clyde " fame). Whatever the game, she ' s just one of the gang. When hippidom faded into the cocaine sunset, Bonnie was in the ninth and tenth grades, but she still remembers her older sisters and the newsreels and the photos, so she hangs around the bars, lives out in the country, wears denim skirts and shirts knotted at the waist, loves that weed and is full of pseudo-anything rhetoric. For the most part, she ' s as interesting as a 1969 copy of " Charlotte News. " Isadora Duncan. Now there was a woman. And Edna Saint Vincent Millay, Amy Lowell, Georgia O ' Keefe: artists all. Our last stop on this inane hand-cart ride through paradise takes us to the art department, where large groups of original people get together and talk and act alike. The unkempt look is in. Sex is the big motif for expression. Isadora loves studio, loves rubbing elbows with other artists, loves women ' s art shows. A bit cynical and aloof out in the debris of the remainder of the campus, Isadora is a free spirit. She seldom wears a bra, abracadabra! She seems to believe that art is a social phenomenon and that crafts are art. She has good intentions, though. And whatever she does is valid, because she has talent. Omissions? Hundreds of ASU women won ' t fit any of these categories. They either combine several or eschew all to be truly original. But the ones who are most original are most invisible; they don ' t need the campus for a dressage yard. The above categories are not meant to exhaust anything but the reader and to prove that history does repeat herself. SEIYIESTEHS The quarter system for dividing the academic year was almost the death of me. I ' m a late starter, a strong finisher, a fourth-quarter player, and by the time I was warmed up to the subjects I was taking, B A N G, it was all over. The exams caught me in my personal lull before the storm or attack of mental facilities, so I almost always did poorly. Under the quarter system, I was just a number. I had to change teachers before my face and name got together in their minds; I had to buy books three times in nine months. I found that anytime I got interested in the subject matter of a course, it was about over. The teacher didn ' t have time to go into anything in depth, and neither did I. The holidays were screwed up during ASU ' s homage to shallowness — the quarter system. I spent Christmas of ' 74 worrying about papers I had hanging over my head like vultures. Of course, I didn ' t work on them while I was at home, but they bothered me enough to substantially reduce the amount of pleasure I had over the vacation. Now I can tie all the knots off before I leave for home and know that those ghosts from fall semester cannot touch me. I also have time to do a little part-time work while I ' m at home and to take a deep breath before plunging into the sargasso of academia again. Last summer, I got home for summer vacation at the end of the first week in June. Naturally, all the good summer jobs were taken up, so I had to work for my dad, who ' s a plumber, again. I hate that ivork. Under the semester system, I ' ll be able to compete in the summer job market with all the kids from the other sensible colleges. Give me depth over breadth any day. In a semester course, we can make more like Jacques Cousteau and less like Marco Polo. We can explore and discover the more subtle aspects of a humanities course and delve into the intricacies of mathematics with the same prof who taught us the basics in an engineering course. When a class lasts for an entire semester, the instructor can plan supplementary activities and have enough time to enact them. That ' s an important feature for me. I also like having a term that coincides pretty closely with football season. That breaks the year up nicely for me, since I ' m a pretty devout football fan. If the semester system had no other benefits, I ' d be for it just because it reduces the number of times we have to go through the registration process, which I detest. I don ' t view man as a creature who should seek constant transitions. In the modern world, we have enough shifting goals, emphases, and systems that can ' t be eliminated. Why not stabalize a little where we can? As far as I ' m concerned, the quarter system belongs in the community colleges and technical institutes. If we ' re going to quit being Appalachian State Teachers ' College and begin to become a real university, we have to dedicate ourselves to depth, even if it means deferred gratification. Besides, now we ' ll only have finals twice a year! by Ted Morrison BCtTEDUJLB OF Cl- fffT SfttiNa BEMESTtStt. » " UZEUJS by Mickey Wingo I loved the quarter system like a Siamese twin, because I ' m an excitable person, an enthusiastic person. I get into things and go wild, then I lose my fury and tire of what I just last week loved. No stamina, I guess. Anyway, under the quarter system, I hit my pace just right and racked up a fine g.p.a. But I doubt that I will be able to sustain it in this new schedule. I function best when my activities are finite, and the semesters seem to go on forever. I like to get a new start frequently, because being human, I ' m fallable and need a second (and third) chance whenever I can get it. But my biases toward the quarter system are not limited to personal idiosyncrasies. Under the semester system, the student is asked to dole out over $250 at a time. That sum is staggering beside the quarter payments, which were more like buying an education on the installment plan. And if something — illness, emergency at home, or a fit of uncontrollable apathy — strikes during the semester, it ' s good-bye money, and lots of money! While we were on the quarter system, we had exam weeks — time set aside for the administration of final tests. In the semester schedule, there ' s no such provision, so the professors are given a wide open field to administer those all-important examinations whenever they choose. And they take advantage of that freedom in the most frightening ways. My exams during fall semester began in early November and ran all the way through the end of the term. What if you get a teacher you just can ' t stand, whether it be because of his personality or his teaching style? Under the semester system, you ' re stuck with him almost interminably. The same goes for a course you don ' t like. Or classmates. Or schedule of time in class. Or anything. You could sit out a quarter to work or play without seriously damaging your reputation as a student or throwing your graduation back another year. I ' m not sure that the semester system offers that possibility. Summer school was great under the quarter system. You could sign up for any number of sessions and get the work in a course done. And the first part of January, when we ' ll now all be at home twiddling our thumbs, is great for skiing. C ' est la vie. I like to work on extended assignments when I can give them my undivided attention. Christmas was an excellent time to do research papers, because it offered me the time to concentrate and the time to get to other university libraries. My papers were better for the fact that I wrote them then or for the fact that I wrote some earlier, let them incubate over the vacation and re-wrote them when I got back to school. Gone are those days. The primary benefit of the quarter system for me was the regularity of fresh starts and the fact that one course could not demolish my grade point average, no matter how hard the teacher tried. And I can ' t foresee how the variety of course work under the quarter system can be matched. You can say all you want to about the way the courses themselves will be re-structured, but my schedule shows me that, whereas the English Department used to offer a quarter of Wordsworth ' s poetry, now it offers a semester on the same thing. Imagine . . . a whole semester of Wordsworth! It would have driven even Coleridge to drugs. They call it progress. We call it murder. The New River is the world ' s second oldest river; second only to the Nile in Egypt. It is part of the great Mississippi River system. Unlike most rivers in the eastern United States, the New River flows from south to north and crosses the mountains from east to west. Geologists believe that because the New flows across the ridges rather than around them, it existed before the mountains. In 1962 the Appalachian Power Company began studying the New River for a future hydroelectric facility. The project, to be known as the " Blue Ridge Project, " was to be utilized only during peak periods. None of the power would benefit North Carolina and it was discovered that for every two kilowatts of power the station produced, it would take three kilowatts of power to operate. If the ecological burden presented by the Blue Ridge Project seems hea vy, the sociological burden will appear unbearable. Since the project will submerge 42,000 acres of northern North Carolina and southern Virginia, 3,000 families will have to seek refuge elsewhere. Certainly Appalachian Power Company will provide means for relocation, but how do you replace a family heritage built up over more than a century? Many families were originally granted land by King George III of England. The flooding of this land will cause the loss of $13.5 million in farm sales. This, in an agrarian area could easily cause a local economic depression. This is ironic in light of the fact that Appalachian Power Company produces such an overload of power already that they daily sell 1.6 million kilowatt hours to other entities. Progress isn ' t worth a dam. SAVE THE NEW RIVER Visit ASU-NY and Peel tine Big Apple The Art Department at Appalachian State University can give you New York City for forty dollars.

I have never in my life seen guys falling all over thennselves for a pair of panties like the ones here. And it seems to me that the girls are really degrading themselves by participating in such idiotic games. Let ' s at least have a change of pace and parade over to the other side so that we may decorate our walls with male paraphernalia. But I really don ' t savor the idea of jockey shorts adorning my mirror— I ' d much rather look at myself. Briefly yours, Bonnie Lou Pushy Fruit-of-the-Loom, N.C. Hoey Dorm (And so would the guys. Ed.) Bird ' s Eye View Dear Editor: Is it true what I hear? Johnny W. Holmes, the porno star, is going tc come on campus as a feature of the Artist and Lecture Series? I am well aware of his lengthy creden- tials, but what is he going to talk about? I don ' t think I ' ve ever heard him spout distinguishable words. I ' d like to be there when he comes. Sign me up for front row seats. Lovie Kravezit Horneytown, N.C. P.S. Better make that second row. Sour Grapes Dear Appalachian Women : Who does Burt Reynolds think he is anyway, dumping me for the young things? I happen to know from a good source (the grape vine) that his mother was a warm Georgia watermelon. Who needs the fruit, anyhow? , Dinah Dinah ' s Place (A watermelon a day keeps the doctor away. Ed.) Dear Editor : My husband doesn ' t know it, but I buy your magazine for him (and me)! If I watch carefully, I can find him in front of the mirror sizing himself up to the model in the centerfold. Naturally, he is bigger since your foldout is not life-size. This really turns him on, making him feel virile and stud-like. We end up making mad, passionate, wild love once a month when the new issue comes out. That is the problem! How about a bi-weekly edition? Waiting in anguish, Mrs. E.H. Campbell Chapel Hill, N.C. Love Potion 9 Editor: In response to the article on the need for an effective and safe aphrodisiac (July 1975) I would like to offer a solution to those lustful souls whose loved ones are not likewise. After years of extensive and devoted research, I have developed the ideal love potion: a delightful blend of Spanish Fly, peanut butter, and PCPA, guaranteed to increase libido by 150%, with effects lasting up to 24 hours. It mixes well with both drinks and food. This wonder nectar may be purchased at 310 Towers between the hours of 4:00 and 9:00 P.M. Prices negotiable. Madame X Towers Dear Editor : I have never been so disgusted in my life. Since when do you have the right to show naked men for all the world to view? Even when we got married in ' 55, Harry and I kept the lights dim. So when I opened your magazine to the centerfold, I was utterly repulsed. I have written my Congressman and fully intend to prosecute. Pornography is a sin!! Susie Bland E.C.U. P.S. Tell Harry to get his bare butt home, pronto. Dear Editor Once and for all I would like to straighten out the widespread rumors and perverted misconcep- tions about my relationship with Mr. Connors! For the record, we have no set plans for the future. We merely enjoy the noncommit- ment of a purely sexual relation- ship. He loves my backhand and my short strokes.

I didn ' t know what I had been missing for all those years that I was married to Henry. I didn ' t know they came any bigger. Thanks for opening my eyes (even without by bifocals)! Ms. X Climax, N.C. GO-ED DORMS CO-ED DORMS CO-ED CO-ED LIVING Juliann Morris Co-ed living — yes or no? — is a question that each individual must answer for himself. The answer largely depends upon the desires and expectations one holds. Co-ed living offers a lot to those who are open and receptive. If you, as a student, prefer an abundance of privacy, if you are appalled by chance meetings of the opposite sex in the hall outside the bathroom, then it might behoove you to seek refuge in a single-sex dorm. In co-ed dorms you have the privacy of your own room — provided your roommate does not impose on you — and, of course, you have the privilege of segregated bathrooms. But people mill through the halls constantly, so caution and tact are essential. Of the many diverse aspects of co-ed living, the opportunity for more interaction between females and males of different backgrounds and persuasions is its big plus, especially in the social sense. " You constan tly asso- ciate with the opposite sex and consequently learn to accept them as real human beings, quite a bit like yourself. " You learn to accept their lifestyles and behavior. Co-ed life provides a chance for you to live an important part of your life in a situation where both male and female viewpoints are exchanged. Granted, these views are often similar, but when they are different you stand to gain through interaction. CO-ED DORMS " I would get tired of seeing only guys in the dorm all the time. Living here, a lot of the girls are just like one of the guys. But there ' s a kind of intimacy that is beyond description. Really relaxed and easy. " Confronting these people everyday in a relaxed atmosphere enables you to enjoy more friendships and to meet more people. (Often parties are more fun — your guest list is endless — everybody comes.) And these »II.E D DORMS CO-ED ]ORMS CO-ED DORMS GO-ED DORMS CO-ED LIVING (continued) friendships almost always develop into deep and meaningful relationships (whether you are one of the guys or not.) Parents often get uptight about this situation because they feel that immorality runs rampant among the ranks of students who elect this mode of living. In defense of it, one participant remarked, " This type of living situation is more natural — guys aren ' t strange or just dates. They ' re human and you are attracted to them in many more ways than just sexual. " Students learn that there is more to a person than his physical appearance. Subsequently, few relationships remain shallow or superficial. The students see how neighbors live in day-to-day routine and tend to accept them as is. Often these relationships develop into lasting ties as mutuality surfaces. As a rule, students do not choose a co-ed life to satisfy their sexual appetites. Because of the constant exchange of ideas and conversation, a great " Because there ' s always something to do, I ' m never lonely or alone. " DORMS GO-ED DORMS CO-ED DORMS GO-ED DORMS CO-ED CO-ED LIVING (continued) many feel instead that it is a healthier situation in a co-ed dornn where people are not so excited by the proximity of the opposite sex. Others find it uniquely awkward to attempt intimate relationships within the dorm because of social pressures. A number of students have found that breaking down simple inhibitions is more easily accomplished in this atmosphere. " You constantly associate with ttie opposite sex and consequently learn to accept them as real human beings, quite a bit like yourself. " It is argued that the inhabitants of single-sex dorms keep more to themselves or to small groups. This is not the case in co-ed dorms because inherent in this set-up is the fraternal ideal. Most people follow an open-door policy which lets you know that you are welcome to stop in and talk. Naturally, this enhances the already friendly atmosphere and projects it further. " Because there ' s always something to do, I ' m never lonely or alone. " Some veterans of this way of life commented that having both sexes in the same dorm helped them adjust to the college scene more quickly. They cultivated friend- ships easily and as a result were better prepared to confront problems that arose. Some women felt safer and more secure knowing CO-ED DORMS CO-ED DORMS CO-ED DORMS CO-ED DORMS GO-ED DORMS CO-ED LIVING (continued) that there were men nearby if they were needed. And the men gained a view of women grounded in reality rather than mystery or romance. The residents huddled together to protect their small freedoms when threatened by outsiders who had little or no understanding of the living situation. Each looked out for the other to a large degree. Both co-ed dorms on campus have liberal visitation policies which allow residents the freedom to entertain guests in their own rooms, an extra personal touch that promotes communication. The (virtually) open visitation setting is decidedly conducive to relaxed group study, and heated debate is a practicable alternative within an open dorm. But by no means is it a puritanical setting. The potential for party life has yet to be realized. A consensus of past residents interviewed favors co-ed living as a great way for one to spend the college years. It promotes self- awareness and self-respect as well as awareness and respect for others. The advantages of co-ed living are numerous, the incon- veniences mostly trivial. It ' s an opportunity for fun and education in a mature setting. DORMS GO-ED DORMS GO-ED DORMS MEN AT APPALACHIAN LET ' S TAKE A LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT VARIETIES Appalachian men come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. There is such a vast array of talents, personalities, and brains in addition, that choosing Mr. Right, whether for a day or a life, is becoming increasingly difficult. Of course, all women are not exactly alike. I ' ll just assume that you ' re reading this because you need help in selecting a beau or you need a good laugh. For those of you who belong with the latter, skip to the last half of the article. In any event, this guide is designed to show the basic types of men offered on this campus. Since guys are so basic, anyway, they should all easily fit into one of these categories. First off, these categories are listed in order of desirability, so naturally, studs head the list. Studs are the prime choice in college males. Whether you need an occasional sweep-off-the-feet or just want some- one to flaunt in front of your friends, studs make excellent companions. Trouble is, since they are numero uno, finding one and keeping one are two entirely different problems. Satisfy yourself with a few dates, they aren ' t exactly the most loyal of the breed. If long term relationships are your thing, unfortunately you ' ll need to skip down a few levels. As I said, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Predomi- nately, whites with tall, lanky figures and blacks that can strut magnificently constitute the greater percentage. Silk shirts, leisure suits, low platforms, and open shirts typify the whites. They usually wear strange, foreign cologne and attempt to act debonair. Not so the blacks. Black studs must be cool, above all. Do not, in any way embarass them, like yelling to them from across the room at parties. Pink is in, rhinestones abound, and platforms are outrageously tall. White suits are still a rage at big events, despite recent moves to overthrow conventional dress. (Perhaps you ' ve noticed the daisheiki ' s, beads, sandals, etc.) Forget all that, those that don ' t, shouldn ' t be in this category, anyway. Both colors tend to sound very dull the 8 first time they call. They save all the fast talk for your date. At any rate, be calm, self-assured. Once they pick you up, it ' s okay to act impressed. Don ' t forget to drop little compliments to fuel their eyes. Anticipate what they ' re going to say because the ever-present jive is confusing. Learn their lingo, if you haven ' t already. Prepare yourself for such jewels as " foxy mama, " " sweet thing, " and " sugar britches, " (not to be confused with " candy a ; " - see lesser men) and so on. Jocks. Those gorgeous hunks of athletic achievement. Recently, there appears to be a separation among these he-men (read: animals). Some have become confident, macho-types, some are halfway intelligent, and for the freshmen girls, there is still a fair supply of the original big, dumb jocks. If you go out with a jock, only to discover too late that he ' s one of the macho-infested, masculine ones, tough luck. Odds are that if you have to read this article, you ' re going to find it rough to keep one on a leash for long. Option-plays are their specialty, and watch for the backfield-in-motion. If you luck up and get the second variety, you ' re in for a real treat. Just imagine a jock with some brains, the best of two worlds! Truly the cream- of-the-crop, he may be anything from boring-as-hell to Paul Newman. For the less demanding woman, we still have our share of dumb oxen. Just don ' t get too impatient with them. For one thing, interesting conversation may not be his strong suit. If you do go out with an ox, don ' t let him get mad for any reason whatsoever. Antler ' s is not a suitable place for body blocks and flying tackles. If he gets mad and sends a pitcher through four students, the wall, and a truck, it is only fair that you offer to stay and help clean up. Also, don ' t let little, insignificant habits like sucking his thumb, eating lunch in a three-point stance, or wearing cleats to bed harm your relationship. These things are easily overlooked. Frat guys run a dost third. No one throws parties like a frat. Just think, 50 guys, all dr essed in those cute, little matching jackets, and all the beer you :an soak up. These guys do have their drawbacks. Unless you ' re in a sorority, don ' t expect immediate success. Word-of-mouth is lightning-fast, which may be good or bad, when guys are so close. If daddy was a frat man, date a guy from his old frat and you may get that car for Christmas. Just don ' t let the conversation turn to roadblocks and walk-a-thons or you ' ve wasted the evening. Rockers. This name comes from Blowing Rockers and is a very fitting name. These are the people that go to UNC-Blowing Rock, or the corre- spondence school version of ASU. Every night of the week they line the bars drinking and the streets thumbing. They ' ve found their nirvana and you probably don ' t fit that description. Partiers. Tiiere are guys on campus who eat, sleep, smoke, and drink party. Everything is a party. School is a party. Flunking out, understandably very popular with this group, is a party. If you like to party, this is your man, they can be a blast. However, be careful. Most of them are multi- talented. As the night wears on and you wear out, your reflexes slow. This is where the caution comes in. Most of these guys can drink three six-packs and smoke an ounce of Columbian and still be all hands. Perhaps you ' ve noticed that the further we get down this list, the shorter the explanations get. Well, from here on out, we approach rock bottom. If you go out with the types below, you can still dream about the real men. Intellectuals. Every institution must have their snotty-nosed, stuffed shirt types. You ' ve seen them around, they ' re the ones with the 3.92 GPA (the " B " in cold Softball did them in) and an entire wardrobe of gray pants and button-down shirts. If you do meet one in the library (the only public place they frequent) and go out with him, don ' t talk much. If at all. If he seems to be staring at you in interest, he ' s just reading your mind. Forget this bunch. BMOC ' s. Ask your mom. Back in the heyday of the raccoon-skin coats and raging school spirit, Elvis Pressley-types abounded. Their spirit has come back to haunt us in the form of some misplaced rednecks. If you are naive enough to accept a date, don ' t get embarrassed when he comes squealing up to your door in a ' 53 Ford with the foam dice on the mirror. He ' ll be wearing his little cap and honking the horn, tapping his foot to the Ink Spots Greatest Hits. Your mom would love him, take him to see " The Graduate. " Cool people. These are those drifting souls, usually half-freaks, that just happen. They don ' t come and go, they ' re just there. Some of them are vegetarians or health-food nuts. Believe me, carrot juice doesn ' t make much of a cocktail and shelling sunflower seeds isn ' t much of an alternative to a dinner at the Fox and Hound. Some of them really have their thing together, but you probably won ' t understand it. These are the cosmic crowd. Far out. Freaks, if that ' s what you want, so be it. Dozing off in class, in their lunch, or in bed, these clowns are in their own worlds. They best be left alone. Jesus Freaks. Oh, God.... Freshmen. You were a freshman once, you don ' t need to ask why they ' re so far down on the list. Lesser men. These are the guys (?) that suffer from weak muscles in the wrist, slight lisps, and a malfunction of the hip that makes them sway. Steer clear. They probably aren ' t interested in your kind anyway. Eunuchs. Be reasonable. 10 You Can Do Just Fine Without Our Refrigerators. . . . just fine, that is, unless you happen to enjoy having milk, butter, cream, cottage cheese, orange juice, oranges, lemons, Kool-Aid, tea, ice water, or a couple hundred other things, cold right there in your room. For the past six years we ' ve offered portable refrigerator-freezers to A.S.U. students at a low cost. During those years our price has changed very little and our quality of service hasn ' t suffered. Renting refrigerators at A.S.U. is a good deal. Just ask the 850 students who did in 1975. Refrigerator Rentals Let Us Help You " Cool It " For a WhUe. 11 Don Smith Looks At: Women ' s Dorms m GUYS m TV LOBBY PI.I:ASIi You might be wondering why a guy is writing this article on women ' s dorms. I wondered about that myself. Who could be more objective about women ' s dorms than a guy? Right? I have never lived in a girl ' s dorm, but why is that necessary to write about them? I mean, after all, I have visited them often enough. I have also known girls who spent ail four years in college in dorm rooms, usually girls ' dorms. I have also lived under a girl ' s dorm room with a connecting radiator from which I learned a great deal! This is my ammunition. I know all I need to. Now, it ' s my considered opinion that any female . . . and I use that term loosely . . . who can live in a dorm for four years deserves a M.D.L. degree (Master of Dorm Living) in addition to the usual B.A. certificate in Home Economics or teaching. I can imagine how much training and skill it takes to live in a girl ' s dorm room. Just take an average room. Do you know how hard it is to take three IVlayf lower vans full of hairdryers, clothes, potted plants, cooking utensils, make-up, books and assorted necessary??? paraphernalia and put all this into a twelve by twelve room? Have you ever seen the face of a father after he ' s single-handedly unloaded all that junk? But girls are real soft-hearted and they can see how tired their ol ' man is, so they take some of that awful weight out of his back pocket. And loading a girl ' s dorm room is only the initial part in getting that Masters in Dorm Living. How about the potted plants? I have been in some rooms that have so many potted plants that I wouldn ' t feel safe in there except with Johnny Weismuller or Rama, the White Hunter. I mean they have Hanging SeaBiscuiticus, Clinging Gargantua and invariably some type of prickly ornamental cactus. But maybe I should mention those girls that go the other route in dorm living. They go the posters and mementos route. They have all those mushy posters like, " Love is never having to share your peanut butter " and " Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of the month. " This is probably the more traditional route toward the M.D.L. degree. Girls have their image to protect, and the mementos give just the right appearance. You know. Mom or the Great Aunt come to visit and they see the picture of the family and the picture of their little girl hugging so sweetly the neck of the family dog. I know no mother or doting father could ever doubt the veracity of a daughter who has those pictures in her room. Dorm clothes are also a pre-requisite to gaining that 12 Masters in Dorm Living. You just can ' t get that degree unless you have a pair of fluffy slippers. You don ' t have to be rigid about those though. It ' s perfectly all right if they have the plastic eyes that roll around or if they are orange and black and striped like a tiger. But they do have to be fluffy and they can ' t be new. In all the years I have visited girls ' dornns, I have yet to see a new pair of fluffy slippers. They have to have hair falling out before they work. The house robe is -another pre-requisite, but they can conne in so many varieties, and all of them are acceptable. Hair care is more rigid . . . and if you ever felt some girl ' s hair that ' s been sprayed, then you might take that literally. I meant that there are things that all girls in dorms have to do to gain the Masters in Dorm Living. If they don ' t clock at least three hours a week in the halls of their dorm with their hair " fixed up " then they haven ' t found the spirit of true dorm living yet. I have seen some girls with so many curlers in their hair that I could have plugged them into my TV and improved my reception considerably. New technological improvements have eliminated most of the traditional hair ornaments; however, and hair-curlers and setting and styling implements have turned the tables on the old " curlers. " In addition to the curlers and clothes aspect, there is also the cosmetic story, but this was only a short article so we can ' t deal with that part of dorm living, except to say that if girls didn ' t buy all that cosmetic junk, the economy would collapse and we would probably have zero population growth. Living in a girl ' s dorm also requires that certain activities be perpetrated if a girl is going to gain that Masters in DL. The Secret Pal drawing, for instance, where two 13 14 Women s Dorms (cont.) girls who can ' t stand one another have to secretly do nice things for one another . . . sorta like asking Jack the Ripper to date your sister . . . you ' re asking for trouble. Girls are also required to join the secret WHBD spy society. For you novices, that ' s What ' s Her Boyfriend Doing Spy Society. That ' s where you have to go out and inconspicuously spy on a dorm friend ' s boyfriend to make sure that he only puts his hands in his own pockets. This is a sure-fire romance killer for you guys that believe in sharing your charms. The only time this plan backfires is when the spy likes what she sees and the original girlfriend has lost not only her boyfriend but a dorm friend. I could go on and on, but most people know about the popcorn binges, the gossip, and the fire drill fiascoes. Finally, the only major point left to cover is hiding the Baby-No-Make miracle pills from the roommate. On this point, I disavow any knowledge of the subject, as my Mother wouldn ' t want me to talk about it. But dorm living is unique and I want to know a whole lot more about it, so if you have some interesting points to discuss about dorm living, then invite me up and we ' ll go over them together. 15 jisaL il ± it 1 Survey: Views on Sex and Birth Controi at A.S.U. by R.T. Smith Upon being asked to conduct a sex survey for this book, I bought a conductor ' s baton, rented a sextant and spent forty-eight hours composing my " Symphony for a Lubricious Afternoon. " But I was then instructed that I should involve the opinions of women extrinsic to my imagination. At that point, I began to take the task seriously. I realize that such a survey must be handled delicately for several reasons. An annual is seldom thought of as the place to reveal the results of such a survey, because the families and friends of co-eds may misinterpret the results. Further caution must be exercised in interpretation of such a survey, both because it is not the most scientifically composed or administered survey in recent history and because many of the answers were probably given in a spirit other than the one in which they were asked. However, the need for discretion does not exonerate from responsibility, candor or honesty. I have tried to abstain from projecting my own views onto the results any more than the original question selection has already done. I have tried to call the shots accurately. If I have failed, my mistakes are honest ones. At any rate, all quotes included in the results are real, and I have tried not to distort them by significantly altering the context in which they were given. Let me mention here that I had assistance in the compilation of the results and in the composition of the survey. Jack and Ellen Dillard, Julie Morris, Leigh l lcDougall and Glenn Wilson all contributed to the question selection and wording. Their cooperation was invaluable, but the choice of quotations below is indicative of only my discretion or lack of it. Caution: remember that all percentages cited refer only to the sample of females who took the survey. It would be both foolish and useless to attempt to draw sweeping conclusions concerning the entire female population of ASU from the results of these surveys. They can serve only as an indicator, a gauge. The following is a copy of the survey as administered: The Questions Are As Follows: 1. Age. 2. Class. 3. Marital status. 4. Type of residence. 5. Dating frequency. 6. Preference of dating style. 7. Are the men here different from those back home? 8. What type of men do you prefer? 9. Do you prefer aggressive men? 10. Where did you acquire your sex education? 11. Are you a virgin? 12. If so, why? 13. How old were you when you lost your virginity? 14. How many men have you had sex with? 15. How often do you have sex? 16. Do you enjoy sexual intercourse? 17. If not, why? 18. Have you ever had an orgasm? 19. Do you use any type of birth control? 20. What method? 21. Are you currently sexually involved with a man? 22. Do you love him? 23. Are you living with him? 24. What is your favorite position? 25. Where do you like to do it? (environment) 26. What type relations do you prefer: heterosexual, homosexual, solitary, or bisexual? 27. Have you ever been to an orgy? 28. What do you think about a person who would spend an evening composing this survey? 29. Do you have any further comments pertinent to women ' s attitudes concerning sex at ASU? 17 Results of the Survey The average participant was a 19V2-year-old sophomore (though 10 seniors did participate), single, living in a dorm. 33% date other than the listed frequencies, 30% on weekends, 28% occasionally during the week, and 10V2% nightly. 74% of those polled prefer casual dates, 19% casual get- togethers and 7% conventional dates. 68% maintained that the men at ASU were different from those back home, with the differences fairly evenly distributed between positive and negative. We did, however, get several interesting replies from the more verbal participants: " The ones here are not date-oriented. They don ' t know how to treat girls. " " They want to get you drunk and then take advantage of you. " " They prefer one-night stands to developing a serious relationship. " " Rednecks at home; jacka es up here. " " The older ones don ' t give ad about girls except for sex purposes and the younger ones are too young! " Concerning preferences in men, the majority preferred types not listed. Athletic, intellectual and older men received the best response of those listed. Half the females taking the test preferred aggressive men, with 16% preferring them some of the time. The order of information sources on sex was as follows: peers, home, school, literature, other and church. A few of those indicating other sources cited " experience. " Two-thirdsof the women taking the survey said that they were not virgins, with nearly half losing their virginity at 17 or 18. About 80 of those answering " no " lost theirs between the ages of 15 and 20. 40% said that they had had sex with only one male. 25% had done so with 3-5 men, 20% with 2 and 15% with more than 5. 42% of those taking the survey had sex on only special occasions, 30% on weekends, and 14% each frequently during the week and daily (if possible). 93% of those answering question 16 said that they enjoyed sex, and 80% said that they had had an orgasm. Among the reasons for maintainance of virginity were: " Because I believe it is not morally right. " " I ' d rather restrain from sexual activities until I find someone who ' ll last awhile. " " Because seduction is messy. " " I have not dated anyone I would like to have sex with. " " Highly irrelevant to you. " Two thirds answering question 19 used birth control; 75% used pills, with 10% each using condoms and withdrawal. 50% answering question 21 (and almost everyone taking the survey answered that one) were sexually involved with a man, and 70% answering 22 were in love with a man. Only 20% of those answering 23 live with a male. By far the favored position was male superior, but many mentioned that they enjoyed a variety of positions. Most said they preferred sex in bed, and 7% preferred solitary sex, with 90% preferring heterosexual sex. No participant had ever been to an orgy, but one said, " No, but if you want to get one up . . . . " Comments on the composers of the survey ranged from " horney, " " hard up " and " perverse " to " cool, " " interested in others, " and " careful in making up the questions. " Responses to the survey as a whole showed up here, and several participants were indignant at being asked the above questions, even anonymously. A few others expressed doubt that the survey was pertinent to the annual, and a few expressed interest in the composers. Some of the most interesting answers appeared as " further S-::. comments: " •:::::; " ASU needs to ship in a couple jii:::. ' hundred new guys!

The purpose of Panhellenic is to provide uniform guidelines and lines of communication for these sororities: Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega, Delta Zeta and Kappa Delta. The Panhellenic Council also encourages a sisterly relationship among all of the represented sororities and establishes the rules for rushing procedures— parties, teas and meetings, as well as the final invitations, or bids, to prospective members. The ultimate goal of Panhellenic is to establish a stable and productive Greek system on the campus and to promote interest in this system. The current officers of the Panhellenic Council are as follows: President — Barbara Thomas; Vice President — Myra fVlcClure; Treasurer— Robin Carpenter; Secretary— Susan Siler. A ATT Xa AZ KA 22 The histories and achievements of the sororities on Appalachian campus may be varied, but the aims are similar. The sororities, currently numbering four, all prescribe to elimination of those isolation factors that haunt the college scene.They profess belief in a personable approach to education and to life through comraderie and common goals. Sisterhood, that opportuniy to tap the source of humanity in close harmony with chosen others, is the backbone of sorority life. It establishes a valid base from which service and knowledge can spring. It provides the means to reach the worthy ends of maturity and wisdom. 23 ALPHA DELTA PI Alpha Delta Pi Sorority represents both the old and the new on the Appalachian State University campus. As the youngest social sorority on campus, Alpha Delta Pi finds its roots in the Vernician Society, the oldest girls service club at ASU. In the spring of 1974, the Vernicians investigated the possibilities of affiliation with a national sorority. After hours of deliberation, the girls voted to petition Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. After preliminary screening by Alpha Delta Pi, the Vernicians petitioned the local Panhellenic Council in the fall of 1974 for permission to affiliate with the national sorority. The request was denied. The local Panhellenic did, however, vote to review the Vernician ' s request in the spring, following rush. By spring, the Vernicians had grown in number, from the original thirty to sixty-three. On Monday, April 7, 1975, the Vernicians petition was approved — Alpha Delta Pi had finally made it to ASU! Tagged the " Zeta Mu Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, " the sixty-three young women began their pledge period on April 27, 1975. It was to continue up to November 1975. After months of work, growing, and planning, Zeta Mu became a reality, when the chapter and its members were officially initiated. Throughout the past two years, whether the Vernicians orAATr,this organization has strived for the same goals: high scholarship, service to others, and the develop- ment of the individual. The sisterhood which exists is special to each girl, who knows that she has been partially responsible for the inception of a new phase of Appalachian State University history. 24 AAii AAii 25 CHI OMEGA In the fall of 1973, Lucy Edwards and Terry Cutts decided to found another national sorority on the campus of A.S.U. Chi Omega was chosen because of its high national standing and purposes. After months of organizing and corres- ponding with Chi Omega, a group of about thirty girls became sorority. Omega Chi Omega. On September 14, 1974, this local group with President Lucy Edwards, Vice President Terry Cutts, Secretary Colette Rawls, and Treasurer Teresa Tracy was honored to be pledged by her National President, fVlrs. LaRue Bowker. On December 7, 1974, Omega Chi Omega was installed as Pi KappaChapter of Chi Omega. This installation was performed by Pi Chapter from the University of Tennessee. Many of the National Chi Omega officers and dignitaries were present for the installation and banquet which were held at the Center for Continuing Education. Pi Kappa Chapter of Chi Omega has grown from twenty-nine members to its fifty-eight present members. The chapter is very active now in civic and service projects as well as campus activities. 26 xn xn xn xn 27 DELTA ZETA The Delta Zeta Social Sorority, grounded in the bonds of friendship and devotion, is dedicated to making the college experience more than just a classroom happening. Since their inception as an affiliate of the national sorority, Delta Zeta has encouraged members to become involved in campus and community issues and activities. The ideal of the sorority is to prepare each sister to be a benefit to her community, an honor to her alma mater. Delta Zetas work within the University framework, encourag- ing and supporting academic and cultural growth. The sorority sponsors a campus clean-up, helps support Galledet College for the Deaf, backs the Apps, and works with the Children at Grandfather Home. For a financial project they operate a popcorn business. Each season Delta Zeta holds a traditional Candlelight Bal in April. It represents one last concentrated effort at sharing and fun at year ' s end, a reminder of friendships that will not soon be forgotten. 28 AZ AZ AZ AZ v " " ' 29 KAPPA DELTA Kappa Delta is a National Panhellenic Conference social sorority. The first Greek organiza- tion at A.S.U., the Epsilon Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Delta was installed on this campus in the fall of 1973. Our philanthropy, both nationally and locally, reflects the deep concern Kappa Deltas feel for those less fortunate. Kappa Delta actively supports the Crippled Children ' s Hospital in Richmond, Virginia, as well as our very special needy family here in Boone. We manage to devote time to programs such as The March of Dimes, the Eye Donor Banks, the Develop- mental Evaluation Center, Unicef, and others. Kappa Delta revolves around many facets of college life. Socially, we enjoy our annual White Rose Ball at Christmas, and our " Luau " every Spring, along with masquerade parties, mixers and teas throughout the year. To categorize Kappa Delta Sorority is impossible. Kappa Delta is all these things and much more. It is lots of work and lots of fun. Kappa Delta is a sisterhood of varied personalities and interests joined by an unbreakable bond of true friendship. 30 KA KA KA KA fP| ■ Xl m i.

U S Man of the Year Doc Ashby It ' s Ou r Turn To Look Back Appalachian Women photographers didn ' t exactly have to force Man-of-the- Month, Evan Ashby, M.D., to pose for a centerfold snapshot. As matters evolved, those concerned generally agreed that turn-about would be fair play. Doc Ashby, as he is affectionately known on campus. has ogled (in the professional sense of the word) more campus goose flesh in his years of service than Mother Goose herself. So, in our efforts to eliminate such inequities in this woman ' s world and to entertain our gaping public, we reveal one of our favorite tales. Eh, what ' s up. Doc? Ashby (a divorcee, girls) is a liberal man. He maintains that he has been a " libber " from the first. He believes that women should be self-sufficient and resourceful and should have every opportunity a man does to arrive at such a position in life. Ashby has championed the right of females to express themselves freely in sexual relationships. He has never hesitated to advise birth control. Though he says that the best method of birth control is an emphatic " no, " he admits, " If you love somebody enough, it ' s hard to say ' no. ' " A free spirit behind the wheel of a Corvette, Evan Ashby thoroughly enjoys an active life. Besides his numerous duties as county and campus medical authority, Ashby devotes enough time to his one main hobby photography to have invested in his own darkroom. So watch it, girls. Is that really an innocent plastic eyeball on the end of his stethoscope or is it a Rolleiflex? Ashby sees himself as an in loco uncle or an in loco big brother to the female population on ASU campus. We tend to agree with his appraisal. All we can say is, if you ' re in need of a friend or a physician, girls, cry " uncle.

BLOWING ROCK OR BUST Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert probably did more for the cause of hitchhiking than everything short of the Boone no-beer law. Their tete a tete (or rather pouce a pouce) hitch-out in the film classic " It Happened One Night " brought roars of approval from thou- sands in the 1930 ' s, and hitching has received the thumbs up vote from college-aged nomads ever since. Recently, we have heard of a new hitch in hitchhiking. Dr. Joan Lockard, a professor of neurological surgery and psychology, revealed the results of experiments that show that the size of a woman ' s bust is an important factor in whether she gets rides while hitch- hiking. In these experiments women doubled the number of rides they obtained by using padding to increase their bustline by 2 inches. The question now is is there a similar experiment for men and, if so, what do they pad? If you have tried to convince a mate simultaneously of your sensuality and your scholarship, you have probably run into snags. In most circles we know, one characteristic precludes the other.

The men were free to come and go, but they were not allowed on the women ' s side of campus after 9:00 p.m. As for dating, this writer wonders how the two sexes ever got together long enough to exchange names. Students were allowed to date on Sunday afternoons. If a man wanted to visit a woman, he first had to obtain a visitor ' s pass from the Administra- tion building. After receiving permission he was required to present it to the dorm mother who, in turn, would permit him to socialize with his sweetheart (under close supervision) during the hours of 2:00-4:00 p.m. That was it. As years passed and students complained ever louder, the Administration finally decided to allow the women more freedom. As a result, couple were allowed to go downtown on Sundays to a movie, but only in the presence of a chaperone. Big improvement. Eating meals during this period was no fun either. At precisely thirty minutes before a scheduled meal (except for the noon meal), a warning bell would ring. Everyone was required to go promptly and quietly to the cafeteria and remain standing until the blessing was said. There was to be no loud or listerous talking or laughing at all meal. No couples were sit together unless they had ' sP hfflfperone (called hosts and hostesses) sit g at their table. After the mearwas completed, a bell would sound, aMUII men were expected to leave ppsiwtly and quietly. Ten minutes lateMjiother bell would ring, and the asien were then allowed to leave. No 1 was allowed to leave the dining room until the ringing of the bells. Food and equipment were not to be taken from the cafeteria unless special permission was obtained from the residence manager. Women were not allowed to loiter around the fountain or Administra- tion building following supper. Sounds like fun, doesn ' t it? Now let ' s have a look at classes. This writer never found any information concerning conduct in the classroom, but from my previous statements we may probably guess correctly what classroom behavior was like. I did, however, find information on the conduct going to and from classes. Women were not allowed to linger in the halls. They were required to go straight into and straight out of the classrooms. If they had no class, they were expected to go to their rooms and study their recitations. All students were required to join a literary society and study in their rooms when not in classes or church. No smoking was allowed on campus or in the Administration building. At one point they even required men and women to use separate entrances into the buildings. When the men were finished with classes for the day they were expected to leave the campus, and women were not allowed to " attend " them on the way. The students were expected to walk on the sidewalks and not to create new pathways through the grass. Students were not allowed to drive cars on or through campus, and the women were never allowed to stop or loiter on the sidewalks, sit on the walkways, or walk along the highways. Some of the more general rules for the students included: no car riding at all for the women unless they had written permission from their parents, no extended conversation was allowed when standing by an automobile, only two visits home per semester, and no more than two trips to the downtown area per week (never on Sunday or Monday). Some of the dormitory rules were even more strict. At 7:00 p.m. a bell would ring and all students were required to go to their rooms to study. Lights had to be out by 10:00 week nights, 8:00 on weekends and 9:00 on Sundays. No student could ever spend the night in town unless he or she had written permission from his or her parents. The students were not allowed to call out their dorm windows, and no one could call up to them. One rumor about how the students bent these rules had the men hiding below the girls windows and whistling. At this signal girls would drop a rope made of tied bed sheets and haul the men up. B.B. Dougherty (then president of A.S.U.) heard about this little escapade and went down to investigate. One night he whistled; the sheets were dropped; and when the girls found out who was on the other end of the rope they quickly released it and never tried the plan again. Poor B.B. Whether this is true or not, one does not know. Suffice it to say that people will probably always seek ways to skirt the rules. And that ' s the way it used to be at Appalachian. We, the student of 1976, should consider ourselves lucky for the visitation policies we do have. 1916 1934 1970 1976 37 1776 1776 1776 JZTj HAPPY BIRTHDAY !

For over one-seventh of the University ' s student population is married — and with marriage come additional responsibilities and restrictions that greatly distinguish wedlock from " single-hood. " The percentage of married students among the full-time student population steadily increases with class ranking, from two per cent of the freshmen to twenty per cent of the seniors, and fifty-three per cent of masters degree students. Among special students, a percentage of thirty- five is married. Combining a college career with marriage affects couples in a variety of ways. Many find that it stabilizes their living environ- ments, and makes studying easier. Others find it difficult to keep up with course work and manage the financial problems that economic independence from parents often brings. Most couples have negligible amounts of time for recreation. Instead, everything is geared to school and work. Even though a large percentage of the student body is married, these students are almost forgotten in terms of activities and general planning. Many married student spouses are not students and are therefore prohibited from taking part in many University activities. It is more difficult to organize married students because of their many responsibilities. The financial problems — or perhaps the added responsibility of children — make it harder for married couples to participate in standard University activities. The University may be a difficult place for marriages to survive because of the tremendous tension unique to the college situation. Although many couples do find their married university years tough, Frank and Lucy Besterman, both grad students, see marriage as a learning experience along with their education at ASU. And if a sizeable percentage of the other 1,227 married students on campus feel the same way, they can ' t help but go far in correcting the image of the free-wheeling college student and replacing it with a more mature model. Married Living 40 Commuters Appalachian commuters rejoice. Help may be on the way. P.V. Potatayo, the eighteenth century Italian symbolist and devout Bspouser of " travel for travel ' s sake and gravel for gravel ' s sake " was recently dubbed by the Deputy head of the New York Port Authority as " patron saint of commuters " in an address to NAC, the National Association of Commuters. Although Tucker Frank ' s remarks were spoken in a moment of levity when he was asked to comment on the peculiar problems of the Hackensack commuter, his canonization of Potatayo, even in jest, gives ASU students a breath of fresh air and this reporter an opening para- graph. Perhaps now the guiding hand of St. Potatayo can steer circuit students clear of Tweetsie bumper stickers, blown engines, and Florida license tags. Maybe now the three to one-hundred and three mile treks to Boone can be void of anxiety and white knuckles. Perhaps early morning commuters from Tennessee and neighboring counties can debate Paul Harvey commentary with their front speakers, meditate on prune danish and cafe au lait, or simply dig on life with a saint in the back seat. Campus commuters are a group that comprises approximately one- sixth of all ASU students. The sub-strata includes weekenders who often fill fulltime jobs during the week, evening classes attenders who frequently are working towards teacher certifica- tion or master ' s degrees, part- timers who seek further education for a variety of reasons, and semi-local residents who choose to drive to campus for financial motives or other considerations. The commuter is a curious breed who succeeds or fails in his studies based upon his degree of dedication and his ability to resist temptation. A drive of fifteen or more miles offers ample time and temptation for the less-than- committed to stray or hedge from the rigors of academia: a modern day pilgrimage through the slough of despond and datspond. The successful student- commuter transcends the agonies of traffic inconvenience, the toil of timetabled scheduling and the heartburn of on-the-go dining by focusing on the broader horizon. A well-defined purpose and a strong sense of self are two of the successful commuter ' s co-pilots in the occasional to daily journeys to the land of the Watauga. Saint Potatayo, we lift our petitions to you in all sincerity. Put a blight on Sunday drivers. Saint Potatayo, we beseech you, put on your glasses and your kid gloves. ASU commuters need your benevolence and your magic and your Gulf card. 41 APPALACHIAN WOMEN LOOK AT: Jkpaiimmi SPwing The Appalachian freshman pays one fee for roonn and board and has no further worries about nneals, heat, electricity or the roof over his head, unless he ' s a heavy eater. But once one becomes a sopho- more, he is faced with the choice- Shall I continue to live in the dorm and have to abide by rules I might not subscribe to, or should I take a risk, leave the nest and involve myself with the freedom and attendant reponsibility of the off- campus alternative? Once, the ASU student had no option until his junior year, but with increased enrollment and crowded facilities, the privilege of deciding dropped back a year to the sophs, as well. But when a student goes out on his own and rents a house or apartment, what are the character- istics of these new life-styles beyond the reach of visitation policies and crowded showers? First of all, the student finds, in many cases, that his resources are taxed by the number of bills to be paid. Telephone, electric, oil, water— all these services may be operated by different companies, each itching for his check by the end of the month. The expenses are not only divided among several companies, but they are also, in most cases, far greater. When Miss Jones or Mr. Wilson digs deeper into his or her pocket (or that of his or her parents), what, exactly are they paying for? Privacy. First and most important. No more constantly jangling phones, troops migrating from one room to another, parties 42 (Apakimmi S ii tng {coniimed) that grow like fungus and engulf the entire hall the night before a big test. Privacy for study, for thought, for socializing or for sex. And choice. The apartment dweller seldom has to accept a roommate dictated by a computer. He or she is also able to get away from the noisy campus area and may find a place out in the country, or at least above the school on a hill like the locations of the Mountain- eer Apartments or Appalachian South. The apartment dweller usually has more space to move around, to park his car, to go outside and toss a football. Space to pile up dishes for a week, space to clean and space to lose keys, notes, stamps and all the other necessities of college life. The off-campus living facilities in Boone range from rooming houses and efficiencies to two and three-bedroom apartments with central vacuuming, garbage disposals, dishwashers and wall-to- wall shag carpeting, but many students prefer to move out to the country or to Blowing Rock where houses can be rented at reasonable prices and where one does not wake up every morning with the impression that she is in a strange motel. But for the student who would escape the " preppie " atmosphere of campus, the discovery of a place that suits his or her needs to a " T " is a laborious task that often costs much in shoe leather and wear on the patience and only results in success just when the searcher is about to give up and go back to the sardine-can room on campus with its cablevision and camaradie of the casually oppressed. 43 ASU WOMEN AND - Fashions favored by Appala- chian women vary as widely as the personalities of the women who wear them, but there are three distinct categories that will serve to classify most of the apparel worn by females in Boone. The casual observer will find low fashion casual wear at Appalachian that reflects current tastes as dictated by Vogue and Madam- oiselle, and that casual wear is, for the most part, the same on the Boone campus as it is anywhere in the country. The light print blouses with a leathery or corduroy skirt and topped with a varicolored scarf are everywhere, and one trend this past fall was the jumper that fell to just below the knee. Usually freshman and sorority girls compose the majority of those who choose this traditional college-girl look to express themselves. o w v mK, 3 m WSB ..kd ' ' ' ft 9w V m tw i r 1 11 i mL- ' " ■% . J The clothing group that has perhaps the largest constituency at ASU is composed of those who attempt to, in some way, satisfy the unspoken demands of the counter- culture. Most of the garments favored by this group would have been disallowed by a school dress code at many colleges as recently as the early sixties, but the " slack look " is definitely " in " in Boone. Those who subscribe to this pattern of dress range from the girls who favor clean, unpatched jeans and tee-shirts in warm weather to those who seek out the Crossnore used clothing store in search of too-long, ill-fitting house dresses and who consider their hiking boots by Vasque to be the most important item in a girl ' s wardrobe. These girls ' dress habits are almost a parody of those who strive for neatness and chic. 44 FASHION WHAT ASU WOMEN WEAR The third major group of ASU girls has been greatly influenced by the athletic orientation of the school. Spiffy looking warnn-up suits and sweat suits have slowly become accepted wear for both classwear and socializing, and the average ASU female owes the acceptance of expensive tennis shoes for casual wear to this small but growing group of women. Most of the students prefer long hair on both males and females, the longer the better. This tendency seems to have been dictated by the " back-to-the- earth " people, but there are still a few hard-core conservatives who trot off to the beauty shop for their permanents. Some App women have also chosen to keep their hair conveniently short in a bid for practicality and ease. The bra-less look at ASU is not new, and many of the costumes worn by the girls in late spring and early fall are quite abbreviated and revealing, as well as colorful. But winter brings out the ski-jackets and sheepskin-lined coats. Boots with more sole-grip than high style also become vogue during the hard winter months in the mountains, and ski sweaters, jeans and warm hats become the common denominators that unite most ASU women during the months between Thanksgiving and March. The only real difference in fashion between Appalachian and most other schools stems from the fact that the practical mountaineer look is always in. Both males and females emulate the natives in the area in dress habits, as well as in many other areas, and that is probably to be expected, for it is this leaning toward the primitive that gives the ASU Mountaineers their official identity, as well as their fashionable one. 45 Though historians may not label the 1970 ' s as a significant period in the history of our country, it has been an exciting tinne to be on a university campus. The Viet Nam war years and crisis related to major student revolts have passed. Since " great " issues have not appeared to be at stake, many educators have indicated that the past several years have been marked with pacifist student behavior. I do not share this view. Though the loud cries of international human concern has not been prevalent, several undercurrents of major significance have surfaced. Students have been quietly, yet effectively and thoroughly, challenging and examining the ideals, goals, and values which have been culturally transmitted to them. They have researched and are validating or failing to validate the traditions, mores, and customs which have permeated our heritage. Institutions of higher education have also been called upon to examine the total administrative codes and laws which have affected the citizens within the educational system. The 1960 ' s brought emphasis and sweeping changes in laws and views related to racial problems; the 1970 ' s may become known as the " Revolution of the Sexes. " Administrators in institutions of higher learning have had to examine the academic, economic, physical, and social restrictions which have limited the opportunities for and lives of women on campuses. From this, many women have begun to realize and become more concerned with their own potential and their responsibility in relation to the decision-making process. Thus inspired, many women of faculty rank have begun to face the inviting challenge to progress to decision-making, management roles and have begun to equip themselves with management skills to allow for this advance- ment. Women students have begun to examine the codes and regulations which have affected their influence, or lack of it, in the academic community as well as in the political arena. In the areas of housing, financial aid, scholar- ships, and classroom management, as well as in the student governmental affairs, women students are challenged to take a more active role in the decisions and opportunities which affect their lives. An awareness of, and a willingness to exert assertive influence to change injustices which have occurred on campuses is being evidenced as women students and faculty seeking positive approaches to traditional problems. One of the most promising factors to emerge from this significant era has been that many career opportunities are now open to women that were not prevalent in the past. Women students have broader vistas in relation to opportunities available and have begun to prepare themselves both academically and socially to respond to these new challenges. From this standpoint, it has been one of the most exciting times that I can remember in the history of working within an institution of higher learning. It is a time of challenge to all faculty, students, and staff women on campuses today to examine our roles, to evaluate our personal merits, to inspect our goals and desires, and become professionally prepared to meet the opportunities of the future. I am encouraged by the progress being made here at Appalachian State University. I am encouraged also by the positive support which males have provided to assure that both a liberated and egalitarian society might exist. Such response serves to elevate the level of human dignity and aid all humankind in reaching the highest level of potential known.

The Editor Dear Readers: Some of you who have never purchased or read a copv of Sports Illustrated may find our ersatz imitation to be impressive. Yet I can hear cries from those of you who are dedicated Sports Illustrated fans. Your cries of anguish do not fall on deaf ears for I, too, am a dedicated SI reader. Yet, we have hopefully accomplished our goal if we can make you feel just like a " jock " without actually being in one, Man has several ways to express himself. Man can touch, see, smell, hear, and taste. If, when you read our issue of Sports Illustrated, you feel the same anxiety expressed by an athlete ' s face; you smell the sweaty odor of the lockeroom after a victory; you feel a thrill at the spectacle of competition; you hear the strains of bodily exertion; or you taste the sweet taste of victory or the salty taste of defeat, then we have reached YOU and our task is finished. Through our pictures and articles, we hope to bring you close to the action. I hope that by the time you ' ve completed reading ourSports ninstrated you will be knowledgeable about Appalachian Sports, even if the sport is one to which you have never been exposed. I hope that our coverage of Appalachian Sports will give you the insight to become an avid fan. Sports competition has been with us since the dawn of civilized man, and when a new sports season arrives we anxiously await the results, much like parents who watch to see what kind of adults their children become. At Appalachian State University, we await the results of the sports season in much the same way. In this school year, 1975-1976, Appalachian can be proud of its football team and of the team ' s eight members who were selected All-Conference; of the soccer team which won their fourth straight conference title; of its valiant basketball team with our new head and assistant varsity coach; and of our cross country team who has made the term. " Ridge-Runner, " a pleasing euphemism. I, along with the staff of this issue of Sports Illustrated, are proud of the Appalachian teams, and we hope that this issue will bespeak of our pride as avid fans. Furthermore, 1 hope that avid is the word that will describe you, our readers, and that you will enjoy our magazine as much as I and the rest of the Sports Illustrated staff have enjoyed putting it together. Morton Dark Editor, Sports Illustrated Steve Nelson Assistant Editor WHEN IT WAS 36, IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR PRO In 1964 Larry Hand was named the Outstanding Lineman in Appalachian ' s conference. He was also named to All State and was named to the second NAIA All American team. He has gone on to be an eleven year veteran in the pro ranks as a defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions. We hope Appalachian will produce more pros in all sports in the future who will represent us AS well as Larrv Hand has and does. S C STANDOUT All-conference quarterback Robbie Price, from Goldsboro, N.C., has led ASU ' s Mountaineers to a distinguished position in national standings. Price has taken the Mountaineers to the 7th in the nation in total offense, 8th in scoring and 9th in rushing. Runner-up for the Southern Conference player-of-the-year, 5 ' 9 " , 160-pound Price has helped the team through an outstanding season, ending with an 8-3 record including wins over South Carolina and Wake Forest. JV££DS A REST ... It has come to our attention that the ASTC football team of 19 3 6 had an outstanding football team. They downed Piedmont College 105 to with their only loss coming to the hands of Catawba, 14 to 0. The most surprising fact is that their combined point total for games was 296 points while their opponents only managed 29! CRYSTAL BALL Soccer Field General Frank Kemo stated that he thought the Mountaineer soccer team would go undefeated if they downed the UNC soccer team in the season opener. Well they downed UNC 2-1. Finishing with an undefeated season leads us to wonder where Frank hides his crystal ball. MVP ASU is looking to forward Don Stringfellow for leadership on the basketball team this season. The 6 ' 7 " senior from St. Louis was last year ' s Most Valuable Player, averaging 10.8 points and 7.2 rebounds. He shot over 54% from the floor last year and has the moves to take the ball to the inside. Appalachian State ' s SID, Pat Gainey has a cute way to get a rest. Upon his door he leaves a note saying, Pat Gainey passed away this morning, funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 4. Please send flowers only. Signed Pat Gainey. PLAYBOY ALL-AMERICAN PRAISE Francis Hoover is a familiar face in Appalachian athletics, from way back. Coach Hoover was in the 40 ' s a football coach for the Mountaineers, and also in the 40 ' s and 50 ' s he served as the basketball coach. Coach Hoover now presides over the golf team. A tip of the hat for service is appropriate to Coach Hoover. Appalachian ' s famed punter Joe Parker led the nation in punting last year with his 44.5 yard-per-punt average. Named to the all- conference team both last year and this one, Parker has proved an invaluable asset. He was selected for an honorable mention ail- American last year by the Sporting News and was picked by Playboy as a pre-season all-American. Hailing from Denmark, S.C, Parker is a junior and stands 6 ' 1 " tall and weighs 190 lbs. ALMOST A WINNER Basketball at ASU, left little to be desired in ' 74- ' 75. It seems that if basketball fans want a winner they will settle for nothing less. Last year the Mountaineers played several overtime games, and also lost several games by fewer than 5 points. Alas, there are no almost winners in sports. iani7¥ ¥ jnuDJUJU AJTjr The Power and The Mountaineers used their power this season to finish with an 8-3 record, eight all-conference players, and an honorable mention all-american by Jack Dillard The mythic Dame of Fortune plays by no man ' s rules. The official ' s whistle, the tick of the clock are meaningless whenever she takes the field. Whether the sport is football or the all-or-nothing game of life, she plays a hand in the final outcome. She lurks in the shadows anticipating the exact moment of weakness or indecision when she can strike down the pass, subvert the glory. Dame Fortune is a formidable opponent on any turf. Her game plan follows no discernible pattern; she plays by whimsy. She is everpresent, ever ready to wrest away the certainty of glory without blinking an eye; she dines on men ' s lapses; she feasts on smug pride. In short. Dame Fortune plays a hard and cruel game. The 1975 Appalachian State football squad fought hard and long with Lady Fortune. With dogged pursuit the Mountaineers stalked the great predator from one Saturday to the next, dissatisfied with only partial successes. No opponent escapes the clutches of Dame Fortune. No team avoids her greedy grasp entirely; a team can only prepare itself for adversity with tough-mindedness and gutty play. Occasionally a team will sustain its drive and determination well enough to contend with the whims of Fortune. Occasionally teams will forge successful seasons out of the rock of her rages. These are the teams that become legends. Coach Brakefield and his Mountaineer warriors were armed with the battle knowledge of the previously hard-fought 6-5 season ... a last second victory over arch rival ECU. a bitter loss to Western Carolina. These men bore their battle scars like armor into every confrontation. They carried with them the echoes of songs sung by Hefnerian soothsayers who touted the team as 10-1 victors and conference champions. These warriors dared to hound the heels of Dame Fortune behind the example of bonafide All- American hero, Joe Parker. In wishbone formation, the Mountaineer warriors staked their claim to fame. Week in and week out, the Mountaineers carved an image that future followers could admire. Whether victory came from the foot of a sophomore kicking magician, the bone- jarring crunch of a defensive demon, or an inspired call from the gutsy sorceror of cool, the evidence was clearcut; the victors were hell-bent on a fate of their own. Last second heroics became the trademark of these heroes, sheer determination their lance and shield. The Mountaineers whipped the Dame at her own game by anticipating adversity. The squad of young warriors stifled her cackles of perverse joy by pounding her into the pocked turf. Next season the Mounties will be veterans of the game, wiser and stronger. Next year Dame Fortune will come limping back to Boone. Less than two weeks after his Mountaineer squad had skinned the hides of the Wildcats of Davidson in the closing game of the 1975 season, one of thos e successful seasons earmarked for further reference and drunken debate; less than two weeks after his boys had crowned the season with their eighth triumph, when by all rights and reasoning he should be basking in the glory of post season press clippings and favorable ' 76 preseason predictions; Head Football Coach Jim Brakefield was on the recruiter ' s phone talking shop. The only difference in this behavior this year and that from recent less successful years was in the placement of the call. This year the call was incoming. Jim Brakefield is a popular man to call these days. " I ' ll mark you down on my calendar for the fourteenth then. That ' s March 14. My assistants have already taken to the road, and I ' ll be out there tomorrow. Now that ' s the fourteenth. Yeah, that ' s right. Well, the Coaches Association encourages us to ask that price. One hundred dollars. For an assistant coach maybe less. We can work something out, I ' m sure. Now what about this boy? " In the twilight of an eight and three season which contained what those who should know- say were the three greatest wins in ASU football history. Brakefield wasn ' t reminiscing those last few seconds at Groves Stadium or the final minutes of the Columbia cockfight. He wasn ' t ruminating over a missed tackle or a late hit call that could have made a difference in a score. Instead, he was negotiating for a full stomach in mid-March and seeking out game films of a possible blue chipper. " What about size? Six-two. Two-thirty. Played what position . . . tackle? Played both ways. How are his grades. Coach? Yeah? That ' s what, a good C plus? What about his scores? He needs to get that done then. Okay, give me that name again. We ' ll want to see the boy. Thanks, I appreciate your call. Catch you when I ' m down that way. " Soon enough he will be led into numerous cafeterias where he will dine on roast beef or chicken with green beans, mashed potatoes, and gelatin salad and where he will inspire the socks right off of high school quarterbacks, tackles and centers with his wit and wisdom. Soon enough he will be making direct pitches to All Star America and selected good boys. Shortly, he ' ll have to duck his head to plow through the masses outside his gate. In a short while he will attempt to discern the " sleepers " from the " snoozers " as he builds for tomorrow. Today, he graciously takes ten between phone calls to answer the questions of a copy editor admirer. " Yes indeed. We are enthusiastic about next season. We took home some big wins this year. But it ' s the job of the coaching staff to be enthusiastic, to inspire enthusiasm. Every team out there is after the same talent we are. We have to sell ourselves as well as the school. " Selling himself to young athletes and skeptical parents is no problem for Brakefield, a real trooper on the recruiting front. He came to Appalachian by way of Emory and Henry and Wofford where he was justly decorated for quiet confidence and Southern warmth. Resembling a taller, graying Hank Stram, Coach Jim Brakefield inspires instant respect as he relates his genuine love for his boys and a library wing of knowledge about the game of football. He is no less inspired when he talks about another of his loves, the town of Boone. " You ' re exactly right. Boone and The Appalachian campus have a charm similar to Chapel Hill and UNC. Plenty of folks return to the area after their schooling because of it, too. Sometimes we get boys from up north who become discouraged about the social life and all that. But, you know, we ' ve found that if a student sticks it out for that first year, he invariably falls in love with the area. This area is a decided plus to recruiting small town boys particularly. " It is not surprising that his players show so much respect for the man. He refers to them as " boys, " " men, " and " students. " He shows genuine concern for the man as a whole and not simply as a two hundred and forty pound side of beef or a great pair of hands. When he talks about his boys, he becomes one of them. " Look closely at this sheet of final national statistics. Gary Davis place fourteenth in total scoring. Robbie was 20th in total offense. There ' s Parker in fourteenth place in punting. Devon Ford, seventh in punt returns, and Gary, again, seventh in field goals. In the conference statistics three of the boys placed in the top ten in rushing offense. Emmitt Hamilton, first. Cal Simon, third. Robbie Price, seventh. And look at this. We held the top three positions in scoring. Davis, Hamilton and Price. You won ' t see that happen very often. Joe Parker was number one punter in the conference again. Ford led in punt returns again, and Price topped the Southern Conference in total offense. If you ' ll look carefully, I don ' t think you ' ll find another team on that sheet with as many different rankings. " Just one of the boys. Coach Brakefield comes across that way whether he ' s talking about his present squad or a future one. " We ' re looking at a lot of talent. If I could have every boy on that recruiting board next year, we ' d win some games in the next four years. Of course these boys aren ' t ours exclusively by any means. Carolina. State, Purdue. Virginia Tech are scouting them, to mention a few. In fact, no boy on that board is being scouted solely by ASU. We have a good shot at a back out of Guilford County who can really scoot. Reminds me of Devon Ford. But it ' s the big ones we plan to recruit heavily. The guards. The tackles. Defensive backs, too. Our number one priority will be defense. We only lose one starter from the offensive team. All Conference guard Tommy Sofield, so we ' ll emphasize defense. " The phone rings again. " Excuse me, please. Hello. Brakefield. Sure, we ' d love to see them . . . " Thank you. Coach Brakefield, for ten minutes in the life of a successful Head Coach. If you, indeed, implement your conference leading offense with a squad of defensive bruisers, and if your 1976 record turns out to be indicative of your enthusiasm and planning, you may not have ten minutes to grant a nosey reporter next year. In fact, you might think about buying a switchboard. 10 ii msi s sisamm f jSn t NOT YOUR EVERYDAY DYNASTY Vaughn Christian must be a magician, guiding the Mountaineers to their fourth straight Southern Conference soccer title. by R.T. Smith Boone, North Carohna is not exactly a regular stop on tn beaten path for American soccer fans, but the fault does not lie with young Vaughan Christian, coach of the App soccer team. Appalachian State ' s soccer team has won four consecutive Southern Confer- ence titles in soccer and has compiled a twenty-four-win, three-loss and one-tie record over the past two seasons. In 1975, the Mountaineers scored 52 goals en route to a 12-0 regular-season record, while holding their opponents to seven goals and posting seven shut-outs. The two Apps most responsible for the one-sided statistics were goalie Mike Sheperd and AU-American candidate David Mor, who slammed twenty- four shots home during regular season. Field general Frank Kemo led the team in assists and was second in scoring with ten goals. The 1974-version of the ASU soccer team frequently wowed the fans with their heavy-scoring attack, led by Emmanuel Udogu (29 goals) and Mor (27 goals), and won by scores like 7-0, 8-2, 8-0, 10-0 and 6-0. But last year ' s squad seemed unable to win against " name " competition, losing to Chapel Hill (0-2) and Duke (2-3) and fighting Davidson to a winless draw. Many fans feared that the Apps, hurt by the graduation of Ail-American Udogu, would not repeat as conference champs. But the Apps came through. Players like newcomer Fernando Ojeda, Willie Hinson and Rolando Carbrera gelled with Mor, Kemo, Sheperd and others to give ASU a well- balanced team, a team that could utilize finesse and power and could overcome ACC teams like UNC-CH in Chapel Hill. The ASU fans responded by coming out for night games, Sunday games, away games (and by beginning to understand the game a little). Soccer is a game that is played with violence, often with hatred, all over the world, and the spectators of Southern Conference soccer are beginning to catch that soccer-fever that leads to riots and lynchings of referees in some South American countries. Of course, one hopes that the Southern Conference will not become the scene of chaos and indiscriminate violence, but the game is capable of raising the blood temperature and breathing life into passions that are, for the most part, dormant in this society. Depth has been one of the strengths of the 1975 ASU soccer team. There are no time-outs in the two fluid halves of play, and frequent substitutions allow first-liners to rest and allow the coach to devise strategies in a game practically devoid of bench-dictated " plays. " Soccer is more like basketball than football in its jig-jag patterns and swift pace. Because it is a low-scoring game, if the two opponents are nearly matched, the whole complexion of a game can reverse with one play, one stiff spike to the goal or one crucial save. In addition to renewing their claim to the conference crown with a 3-0 playoff victory over William and Mary, ASU successfully defended its Emory Invitational Tournament title by defeating Florida Tech and Georgia State in two close games, 2-0 and 2-1, respectively. Probably the only real threat to the Apps ' claim on the SC championship was posed early in the season by dangerous VMl. In a muddy field, the Apps salvaged a 4-3 victory in what was their poorest defensive showing of the season. Other season highlights included a 2-1 opening revenge victory over UNC ' s Tar Heels, a 5-1 win over last year ' s regional champions Belmont Abbey, and an impressive 4-0 triumph over old nemesis Davidson, a school where the soccer tradition dates back almost as far as the football tradition at ASU. But where did it all get the Apps? Last year ' s team was the class of the conference, but was overlooked by the invitation committee for the regional championships. This year held a different fate for Christian ' s hooters. Ranked in the top ten soccer teams in the South all season, the Apps received one of the four invitations to the Regional Tourna- ment, which leads, for the winner, to a chance at the national title. Christian called the bid to play with the top teams in the area " extra icing on the cake, " and the Apps flew to Washington, D.C., on November 10 for its 15 first crack at the Big Leagues. Whom did the Mountaineers draw in their first real test as a national power? The most powerful team in the nation over the past three years, Howard University, winners of two national championships revoked over technicalities. Although the Clemson- Nigerian team was the most talked-about and highly-touted team in the region, perhaps in the nation (they were rated number one, nationally). Howard had defeated the Tigers in a one goal shut-out in the Tigers " den. ASU had no soft shot at national prominence. The result was unfortunate for the proud Apps, for their offense found Howard too tough a match, and the Mountaineers fell 3-1, after a hard-fought battle often in doubt. But ASU ' s hopes for national recognition did not fall in that single defeat. The team accounted well for itself against the eventual national champs and learned that there is no substitute for experience in post-season play. David Mor will not be back next year, but other Apps will. And the spirit is here. t ' {:f » V „ » !» 4 • There ' s Tennis In Them Thar Hills Despite Boone ' s famous spring monsoon season, App netters stroked their way to the Southern Conference title for the second time in as many seasons — and coaches. Alright gang, here ' s the quiz: who is the best tennis player in the history of the Southern Conference? For those of you who didn ' t answer Keith Richardson, an overhead smash to the ol ' caboose is in order. Richardson, from Rock Hill, South Carolina, ended his varsity career in 1975 with a 102-10 record. His graduation (and along with it his 22-4 1975 singles record) was enough to bring tears to any coaches eyes. Shedding tears is standard procedure for a university tennis coach. Pulling hair, however, is reserved for more drastic losses in personnel. If this be true, Appalachian State tennis coach Bob Light should now resemble Yul Brenner. Light ' s second and third seeded players, John Geraghty and Jasper Cooper, respectively, have decided to play elsewhere in 1976. Geraghty, from Miami, Florida, took his 24-2 record (49-2 over two years) to the University of Miami. Cooper went home to England to play in more prestigious tourna- ments. This leaves Coach Light with much the same task his predecessor Jim Jones met several years ago: to build a winner from talented but young material. Light has Davis Babb from Charlotte and Graham Hatcher from Durham, his fourth and fifth seeds last season, to lead a group of bright young players into a challenging schedule. Two freshmen with promise are Randy Redfield from Asheville and Dan Weant from Salisbury. " They ' re all conscientious and hardworking, " says Light. " There is still some uncertainty about who will fill the remaining vacant spots on the team. " Light will be touring the east coast this year with hopes of matching last year ' s 22-5 record — a mammoth task. The Mountaineer tennis schedule, unlike in many other sports, is at its easiest within the conference, making it conceivable for the App netters to have a less-than-spectacular overall finish and still take a third conference title. This, says Coach Light, is what they ' re after. 18 ■ 7a 20 ; - . « ' ' " ..■r A, iV f ♦ -- i 22 Because The Kid thinks of himself as a portsnian (as well as a bonafide All American ' oetry Team candidate), and because he .alked to The Pantry one Sunday morning in ime to be looking in the fresh fish store ' s vindow at the food colored lobsters when his riend silent Doug Moose ran by en route to jrandfather Mountain with a flock of other hin-clad marathon runners, and because he las promised to fulfill certain assignments in irder to earn his monthly spoondolicks, he is low dressing in his Adidas blue satin ' Continentals, " out-of-style and prosaic grey weatpants and his " Antihero School of Fine rts " sweatshirt (with Modigliani-looking ogo compliments of Vic Moose) and planning run over the river and through the woods in •mulation of more conventional harriers. Now hat he no longer thinks that " cross country " efers to the Bible Belt, The Kid is willing to )ant and sweat through a cold Boone rhursday afternoon in search of whatever lirvana is involved in running six November niles with hopes of returning to home base, omplete with hot shower and Czech nasseuse, before sundown. The Kid inticipates shallow victory or none in this juest of endurance and e.xercise in absurdity, )ut some college men perform this particular ask regularly, often in less than half an hour, ind enhance their own self-images in the jrocess. Though The Kid expects no such ransformation to take place for him, he does lope to be able to wear an " I-done-it-too " smile at the completion of this regimen. First, the road. Cars flash fast, ignoring the " act that a mere mortal is within their realm, rhe Kid watches the sky shift, the cloud- batched surface skid and evolve. He is almost lit by a yellow honda car. His pace is aughable, but he is too winded to even hazard 1 chuckle. He recites Poe ' s poems in his Deleaguered mind, as he chuffs off the main drag and into a forbidding-looking stand of A ' oods. His breath forms little puffs, like :omic strip characters ' dialogue-holding fists af cotton candy. His lungs burn with millions of minute pricks from the pitchforks of tobacco he has smoked and gin he has guzzled (The Kid really drinks bourbon, neat, because he is a gentleman, genus: Southern, But " gin " has a more decadent, hence more destructive sound to it.) His Adidas-clad feet begin to ache from the protrusions on the forest floor. Nobody this close to thirty should try so hard to develop such a bad habit as running long distances. (But what if he just barely misses the Boat of Fame? Won ' t he have to run to catch up then? Of course, this is training.) Over hill, over dale .... Creek, ice, sticks, bridge?, one slip . . . the baptism of Adidas. Only 2 miles down and the ridge yet to be mounted, and already The Kid ' s wet flesh cries for capitulation. The woods march on, but the runner slows, stumbles, slogs. He is down! One, two, three (no mandatory count in this state), four: yes, he ' s up. He is risen! The Kid moves on, but now he ' s only walking. He covers stones, shades like a slow shadow beneath the carpal limbs of leaf-stripped trees, the birch skin shining sarcastically in halflight of the dusk. He struggles onward, down a thin Indian path, imagines files of bucks stalking home from the marsacre, " By the shore of . . . . " The Kid, macho-maniac of the local literary scene, full of moxy and scruff, seems beaten, but there is no short-cut. He must follow the mindmap he was given, pursue the tricks of geography like any harried harrier until he is home. The faster he can move, the sooner . . . the cold closes in like a steel jacket. His legs seek warmth in motion, faster. Bloody, but now bowed, metaphorically speaking, he jogs for the safety of the den, for the father confessor of the typewriter. The Kid has known defeat under a wind-scrubbed sky in Boone. He has tasted the bitter pepper of humility and survives to tell all. Out of the skeleton of his own doomed effort, The Kid seeks to construct a raison d ' etre for cross country. What is the morality of distance running? If only Allan Sillitoe were here to inform on the guilty parties, but he is not. Distance carries a quality of simple evil; it is obstruction to man ' s wishes, to his needs. He has overcome the threat of distance with his technology, but that is somehow a cheat on the universe, an admission of weakness. Certain men (and women!) thread their way overland every morning to bring the battle back into a more human arena, to combat the gods by sheer persistence, by the operation of by R.T. Smith a well-tuned body and a mental toughness characteristic of some ancient saints. And running is therapy, like the writing of marathon novels like JR or Gravity ' s Rainbow, or infinite poems like The Cantos. It is an affront to the perversities of limitation and finitude. It is the wall around China and the construction of a dynasty. It is the merging of quality with quantity. It is the attempt to bring God to human terms. All this. The Kid thinks, while his housekeeper towels him down and forcefeeds him chicken soup. She is Jewish. He cannot help but admire individuals like App cross country coach Bob Pollock and his followers who question the tyranny of limitation. Runners like Louis Blount, Sean Gallagher, Gary Cohen, Norman Blair, Richard Wallis, Ric Shriver and Frank McNeill outdistance The Kid ' s efforts daily and do not collapse into the arms of their trainers half so desperately. The Apps challenged the Great God Distance successfully enough to finish third in the SC and fourteenth out of twenty-five in the District Three Championships. They make The Kid sick. They drive home his awareness of his age and his sense of mortality. His envy grows, and he considers omitting their names from his account. But The Kid ' s love of Fair Play triumphs, and he is consoled by the fact that most harriers could not identify a sestina if it was on a stick in front of them. The Kid limps across the floor in bathrobe and slippers. His electric blue Adidas are in his hand. He tosses them into the noumenal depths of his closet. He has retired. 23 THE HANDICAPPED The course of the A.S.U. golfers ' season unfolds with more undesignated hazards and traps than the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Most golfers are familiar with the term " handicap " as it refers to their level of play, and each has at least one eye trained towards attaining or maintaining the mythic " scratch " handicap, but in the town of Boone and in the mind of A.S.U. gold coach Francis Hoover handicap has a double meaning. The spring season presents the A.S.U. linksmen with distinct disadvantages. One unavoidable hazard is the need to frequent Lenoir ' s Cedar Rock Course in the early weeks of the season for practice. A.S.U. golfers play half of their scheduled matches before the home course even opens. The effect this handicap plays on the scores and rankings of the team and team members should be obvious: golf is a game of confidence, concentration, and momentum; A.S.U. golfers are faced with the prospect of a slow start and interrupted impetus with only part-time access to a golf course. When the highly unpredictable weather of Boone enters into the cat fight, players are practically asked to attack the links without a nine-iron. Hoover, a coach of golf at A.S.U. for 22 years, has resigned himself to the handicaps of Boone golfing. " We have been fortunate here at Appalachian considering the factors wc must overcome. I think the program is a good one. We have maintained a pretty good jayvee program in the past that enabled boys to gain some valuable experience, but we are going to try. to do without it now to save expenses. The fact that the conference tournament was moved up a week should hurt us. The kids will just have to work extra hard to compensate. " Hoover, an accomplished fence straddler, predicted that his ' 76 spring squad would be a " pretty fair team. " Continuing, he said that he foresaw nothing which would prevent his squad from at least duplicating the third place conference ranking of the 1975 golf team (H.C.U. noscd-out A.S.U. for second by one stroke in last year ' s conference tournament) if not actually advancing a notch or two. Furman, he continued, has everybody back and should be the team on the spot, but Appalachian fans shouldn ' t pack away their golf bags and their hopes in the attic; Hoover has three all conference golfers returning from last year ' s squad that managed an unblemished 7-0-0 record in individual matches with the likes of Davidson, V.M.I., U.N.C.C., and Western Carolina. Returning are junior Mike Bright of Shelby (74.77 avg.). Sophomore Gary French of EAGLE? Greensboro (76.77) and junior Robbie Isenhour of Norwood, N.C. (78.05). These three golfers who, along with Wayne Petty, Mike Wright, William Deck, and Ed Webb, led the team to a third place finish at the Etowah Invitation, a tie for fifth at a Four-Ball Tournament, a thirteenth at the Palmetto Invitational, as well as lower finishes at the Southern Collegiate and the Chris Schenkel Tournaments, should hold the top three posts on the ' 75- ' 76 squad. With help from newcomer Steve Sherman of Shelby, and Rick Alspaugh of Winston-Salem and Ken Hamlett of Roxboro, the Mountaineers should avoid the rough this season. If it wasn ' t for those handicaps .... 24 A LOT OF " IFS " FOR SLIM JIM The AS U Nine hope to have an injury free season and to fill Ramsey ' s spikes. Most assuredly there were times last season hen Jim Morris considered inviting Charles . Finley to Boone for a pep talk. There were robably moments when Marcus Welby would ive been more welcome than a clutch hit. 1st spring was just one of those oddball ;asons when even the stadium peanut ;ndors had to hand out promissory notes — le of those non-Pringle seasons when rcumstances didn ' t stack up quite right. Jim Morris is, of course, the head coach of le Appalachian State baseball team; a man ho probably pulled out more hair during the mrse of the ' 75 season than a convention of ■acticing electrolysists. And Charles O. inley is the major league owner of the akland Athletics who helped resurrect rofessional baseball from the public cellar ith his grand innovations (the DH, jsignated hitter and the DR, the designated inner) and his showmanship (handle-bar loustaches and a pet jackass). Where Morris )uld benefit from the Finley expertise is in le implementation of the DM and the DWM, lat ' s the designated medic and the ssignated weatherman, respectively. Morris ' Mountaineers managed to forge a )-so 20-15 record out of one of the few isasters that hasn ' t hit the drive-ins, but it ok inspired coaching, the seasoning of a •op of rookies, and the emergence of a pro rospect to turn last year ' s disappointments ito this year ' s artillery. Faced with an odd assortment of pre-season and early season injuries and ailments. Coach Morris was forced at times to field a starting nine of as many as six freshmen. Consider the fact that Boone weather claimed the baseball field until after the season was in progress and you wonder why Morris and the boys didn ' t decide to " sit this one out " and swap baseball cards. The key to a successful season at Boone U. has always been the good, fast start. Weather conditions necessitate the Mounties playing a disproportionate amount of their early conference games on the road; and so, when heartache struck Morris and his staff in the form of injuries to three key starters as close as two days prior to the season opener, the outlook for the conference championship was Boone cloudy. Despite the lack of intra- scrimmage practice, the ASU nine swung south for traditional warm weather tour, only to discover that Old Man Weather had checked into practically every town ahead of them. At this point in the season Coach Morris was talking to his Louisville Slugger. Most grown men would have converted their catcher ' s mitts into hanging house planters at this stage of the game and left the diamond for the Lou Brocks and the Luis Tiants, but Morris and his team did not. The reason they did not fold was because Jim Morris was determined and because the team was talented and hungry. The team rallied around AH Conference, All State, and All Southeast shortstop, Mike Ramsey once he returned to the App line-up to negate its inexperience and early season tendency to make the costly mistake. With fine pitching performances from Mike Ellis, Alan Rudisill, John Monczynski, Keith Morris, Robert Stoker and reliever, Rick Dell; the clutch hitting of Randy Ingram (.323), Chris Carney (.317), Mark Dunn (.347), and Ramsey (.379, 27 RBI); and the overall speed of the squad (53SB); the ' 75 edition of the Apps managed twenty wins in playing what Coach Morris called " good ball " over the last half of the year. The outlook for the ' 76 team is promising. Morris has a stable full of experienced players, including six or seven potential starting pitchers and a trio of good catchers. Add to that a good team attitude, a favorable spring schedule, a hot-shot replacement for Mike Ramsey (who signed with the St. Louis Cardinals) in Randy McDaniel, a number of hard working freshmen and a strong defensive infield, and the finger of fate points to a points to a possible championship in the balanced Southern Conference. If Morris can get consistent hitting from his outfield and consistency from his mound staff and avoid the dismal start, he may not need Finley, the DM, or the DWM. He has the talent to win it all. All signs point to a successful season, if only the peanutman ' s ship will come in. 25 26 27 THE SUPER TEAM NOBODY ' S SEEN. . YET Appalachian holds quite a standing in national rifle competition. The ROTC rifle team ranks first in the nation and the varsity team seventh. Few people realize that there are two teams, but there are, and some members are on both teams. The ROTC team is, of course, limited to ROTC cadets, but the varsity team is open to all students. Competi- tion for spots on the teams is fierce, though, as it has to be to maintain the consistently high quality standings they have. The 12-member ROTC team placed first in the nation out of 291 colleges and universities, aside from placing first out of 105 in the region. The ROTC national competition consists of firing at a target 50 feet away with .22 caliber match rifles in three positions; prone, kneeling, and standing. In the national competition, the ROTC team scored 2,752 points out of a possible 3,000, for a 91 per cent average. The Appalachian Shooters, the varsity team, are expected to place higher this season than their previous seventh. Last year, the team took the Southern Conference Cham- pionship and the Western Carolina Rifle Championship. Elizabeth Bowen Ashby is the captain of the team, voted to the position by her fellow teammates. She is joined by Ail-Americans William Piatt and Dennis Smith from last season, as well as four returning lettermen, Edward Scarboro, Lee Ramseur, Beth Haines and Jim Bumgarner. Coach of the team, Sergeant-Major Harvey D. Webber, said the addition of newcomers Jay Stafford, Kim Schirrman, Rudy Barlow and Colleen Murray will add strength to the already-championship caliber team to form one of the best squads in the nation. Webber is an instructor in the Military Science Department, as well as coaching both the ROTC and the varsity rifle teams. Because the varsity team won top honors in the two conferences it participates in and placed seventh in the nation, Webber was voted Southern Conference Coach of the Year last season. The team ' s captain, senior Liz Ashby, has proved a very competent, if not surprising, member. As one local paper put it, " Annie Oakley she ain ' t. A crack rifle (man, person, woman) she is. " In just over one year, the Wake Forest native has earned several medals for her efforts, including ones for All-Southern Conference, third leading individual shooter in Southeastern Rifle Tournament Competi- tion at Fort Lee, Va. and the Best Lady Shooter to enter the Kansas State Turkey Shoot. Liz says, " I started in this sport by taking rifle as a physical education course and when I did well in the course, I decided to go out for the rifle team. " She adds, " A lot of people don ' t think a woman can shoot. For instance, a lady asked me recently if the guys minded me being on the team. I don ' t think they do because I ' m the team captain. " Liz set her all-time best record, a remarkable 579 out of a possible 600 points in a half-course event at East Tennessee State last season. " Most people don ' t understand the sport, " she says. " Physically, the object is to put the shot in the buUseye of the target, but it isn ' t that simple. There is a great deal of pressure involved, but that ' s what makes a good shooter great, the ability to handle pressure. " As for any other problems, Liz observes, " There is a great deal of concentration involved and there is a great need for body control. One of the things a shooter has to learn is the proper positioning of the body when you are shooting. It ' s a little tough to put your body in those angles because they seem so uncomfortable. " Liz says belonging to the team offers no threat to her femininity and she had fired shotguns and 28 stols before, so she had no fear of the eapons. Liz says, " Td like to qualify for the lympics in Phoenix this June, and after I nish school, I would like to enter open )mpetition if I get the chance. ' " The ROTC id better be on their toes this season, as she Ids, " 1 want to see the ASU team (varsity) in the national championship this year. " here ' s a fair chance they will. Like I said, Liz as proved a very competent, if not sur- rising, member. The surprise? Liz is only in er second season of competition! The varsity team has competed against jugh competition this year, with teams Dming from North Carolina State, Wake orest. South Carolina State, Davidson, lemson, Furman, Wofford, Tennessee Tech, iast Tennessee State, Citadel and Presby- 5rian. The Southern Conference Champion- hip was held at Fort Lee, Virginia, like last ear, on February 28. The championship of le Western Carolina Conference was decided ipril 3 in Spartanburg and the National ' hampionship was held at Wake Forest larch 6. 29 Mid-season found the ASU wrestling team, normally a contender for the Southern Conference crown, with a disappointing 1-4 record. The one win was a hard-fought 25-19 victory over Old Dominion, and the four losses came at the hands of Virginia Tech, Middle Tennessee, and powerful N. C. State and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Assistant Coach Fred Bauer, however, tries to look at the bright side of things: " I will concede that ASU ' s wrestling team is weak, but there are a few bright spots. Alfred Ash, a 190-pounder from Kings Mountain, has won all five of his matches impressively, four with pins. He ' s outclassed all his competition so far. Captain Dennis France, a Mt. Airy native who recently moved up to the 142-pound class, has won four out of five. " Ash pinned his U. T. of Chattanooga foe in thirty seconds. Bauer adds, " We have five freshman starters and won ' t lose but one starter by graduation. Tommy Lunsford ' s a good wrestler, but his competition has been real tough. Eddie Foster, another freshman and three-time N. C. State High School Champion, is really coming along. He ' s normally a 118-pounder, but he ' s wrestling at 126 because we ' re weak there. " In the past, ASU was the power in the South, sharing the honors with East Carolina, but the power has shifted to the ACC schools, primarily UNC and N. C. State. " Bauer, a former ASU wrestler himself, explains the change in Appalachian ' s status: " The larger schools put more money in their programs. Because of the increase in out-of- state tuition at ASU, the wrestling program here has suffered immensely. We have only four full scholarships, and all of them are for in-state kids. But we practice hard anyway, and although our record is poor, our morale is still high. Coach Koenig knows his wrestling and has had national champs. Don ' t count us out vet. " Bauer predicts that the team could make a good showing in the conference tournament, " if we place four wrestlers high there, " but admits that there ' s plenty of work ahead if the team is to be in contention. Bauer, who travels around the area a couple of times a week to referee high school matches, is enthusiastic about the sport, which is one of the earliest known sports for western man. " Wrestling gives the small athlete a chance to compete without any automatic handicap. It teaches the competitor rigid discipline and sacrifice. Sometimes these fellows will drop fifteen pounds in a week just so they can make a weight that is far below what their bodies are capable of carrying comfortably. And these kids we ' ve got this year are easy to work with. They ' ve got a lot to learn yet, but they ' re great guys. " The team ' s primary goal is to place well in the Southern Conference Tournament, and neither Coach Bauer nor head Coach Koenig has given up. Graduation Slips ASU a Half Coach Ken Koenig faces stiff competition with two veterans and a lot of spirit. By R,T, Smith 30 31 BASKETBALL Jack Dillard and Steve Yaeger ON THE WAY UP (WHERE ELSE?) Maybe We ' re There Already The office was still in its usual end-of-the- hall position. The clubhouse atmosphere it once had was now gone, as were the hundreds of photographs that had for three years adorned the walls. Instead, the office had a business-like quality about it — a couple of framed photographs, a diploma, a bookcase, a movie screen. The office is that of the head basketball coach at Appalachian State University. It now belongs to Bobby Cremins, former playground star of the Bronx, former University of South Carolina backcourt ace, former assistant coach at use, head basketball coach at ASU. Cremins came here with a winning tradition and a smile, well knowing that it takes time to build a winner out of 3-23 material. Winning is in Bobby Cremins ' blood. Unlike the Vince Lombardis ' of basketball for whom " winning is the only thing, " Cremins thrives on winning almost as much to see others cherish it as he derives satisfaction from it himself. " I don ' t put all of my emphasis on winning — that ' s a hazard in sports... so we (he and assistants Gene Littles and Kevin Cantwell) put our emphasis on other related things and hope that winning will be the outcome. His concern for others and amiability contribute to instant rapport with fellow coaches and players. Cremins has widespread friendships which will (and have) benefited Appalachian ' s basketball program. He speaks of contacts with former teammates and friends who are " in the know " concerning high school and junior college talent. When Cr emins came to ASU, he had two formidable obstacles to overcome in recruiting talent. The first and foremost was Appala- chian ' s losing tradition in basketball. The second was that of having only one full-time assistant who, at that, has to teach four classes in Physical Education. He did much to ease the problem of a losing image in his first season — spent all season near to or at the .500 mark in winning percentage. Of the second problem Cremins said, " I think eventually they (the administration) will limit the number of courses we teach. . . I teach one course and I think it ' s great — I live it; but my assistant has to teach four or five and that ' s too much. I took this job knowing the situation and 1 accepted it as such. " At 28, Cremins is the youngest Division I head coach in America. He, his wife and two daughters live near Blowing Rock. " We like it here, we really do, " Cremins said. He often uses the scenic environment as a recruiting plus. He noted that the urban players have adjusted quite well to the serenity of the North Carolina mountains. In Bobby Cremins ' last game as captain of his 25-3 South Carolina team, he received a thunderous ovation in Carolina Coliseum. It ' s a little less noisy, a little less obvious, but after only one year as head coach Bobby Cremins is well on his way to an ovation by Mountaineer fans everywhere. " Let ' s be realistic, you ' ve got to win to stay in this business, " Cremins said. Right now there are thousands of fans ready to help Mr. Cremins unpack his bags and stay a while. 34 The Cremin ' s Express hasn ' t slowed in the least. " All aboard for the Bronx to Boone Express. Last stop, respectability. " These words could have been the cry of an aged conductor who had one foot on a train stoop and the other dangling in sentimental allegory, but they were not. Instead they relate to the silent battlecry of Bobby Cremins, a man of drive and destiny, who was called on to perform miracles in Varsity Gym — put the train back on the track, so to speak. 35 36 The cry was his. It emanated from the store of pride he had cultivated in his years of dedication to basketball and to the team concept. If it sounded brash or presumptuous, his past successes dictated that it be so. He had a mission: to put Boone on the basketball map. His success can be measured by the degree to which he made his battlecry that of his assistants, his young team and his campus. Gene Littles was the perfect complement to Cremins ' dauntlessness. A man of experience and scope, Littles brought to Boone another measure of success, three Ail-American years ' and seven pro years ' worth, that made its stamp on the young Mountaineers. The battlecry was his. And Kevin Cantwell ' s. And Pat Gainey ' s. And it became the players ' rallying cry. They took it as their own to Raleigh and to Winston Salem and were soundly defeated by teams who knew first hand the power of similar cries. But these players were Cremins men down to their jockstraps. They were determined to keep the spirit alive. Behind Daryll Robinson, the first big recruiting break and passenger on Cremins ' express, and junior college transfer Calvin Bowser ( " midnight train from Georgia " ), the Mountaineers defied pre-season oddsmakers with hustle, fresh troops strategy, and tough D. They set team records for Southern Conference wins, assists in a single game (vs. Furman), and at one point recorded the mark of five consecutive conference victories. The Cremins crew posted first ever wins against league foes Davidson, Furman and league- leader, VMI. On their way to a .500 season within the conference and a tie-for-fourth place finish, the Mountaineers scored satis- fying home wins over East Carolina, Lenoir Rhyne and Western Carolina. The revived Mountaineer spirit and the team ' s season long flirtation with a winning record and tournament seeding brought screaming, die-hard fans back to Varsity Gym. They came in droves to laud the miracle worker, Bobby Cremins and his band of Pullman devotees. They honored the team with record attendance in a game against last place Davidson and praised the Mountaineers with their loyalty. Revived at last from dismal winters of mediocrity and defeat, Apps picked up the chant and believed it. Others believed it, too. By season ' s end the Cremins Express was taking coal at full throttle, and conference opponents were well-advised to avoid collision. The Moun- taineers had proven that they could scrap with all comers; by tournament time they wanted the prize, the crown, the trophy. Bobby Cremins had turned the Boone Express around, from a choo choo to a freight train, and the freight was unqualified success. Conference ears were cocked and listening for the Cremins ' " Bronx to Boone Express, " one train rolling in ahead of schedule. Next stop, championship. 37 38 39 MORT DARK LOOKS TO THE HILLS ASU proves to be " Cool School USA ' ' Greetings sports fans and welcome to the Mecca of Southern skiing. " Cool School, U.S.A. " is none other than Appalachian State University, located in the center of all the name resorts in the state of North Carolina. It is no wonder that here at ASU there is an abundance of frozen precipitation, since it is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This makes it possible for every skier from Aspen to the Atlantic to journey to Boone for a four-year stopover to practice and compete in the growing sport of skiing. The presence of skiing is felt throughout the year here in Boone, and it is possible to spot ski racks on cars as early as September and as late in the skiing season as May. With the first flake of snow there is a frenzied rush to the ski shops to pick up this prestigious symbol of skidom. There are those here at ASU who regard the sport of skiing as seriously as one would regard a presidential election. Needless to say, these are the hard-core addicts of the sport who have attended college here pri- marily to have access to the slopes, and the school to fall back on in case their efforts on the snow don ' t match those of Jean-Claude. In an effort to form a more perfect situation, a ski club has been formed at ASU for these hardy souls who seek a competitive outlet. The Appalachian State University Ski Club was organized five years ago, because skiing in the Southern Conference is not a varsity sport. The skiers receive no funds whatsoever from the University and must pay their own entry fees to compete against other schools and to practice twice a week. Club members start early conditioning in the fall and continue until the slopes open for " the real thing. " The top ten club members form the ski team, which consists of five men and five women. These team members compete in events such as the slalom, giant slalom and the ever-popular downhill. Presently, the ASU team is in the lead in the association standings for the 75-76 school year. Dedication and easy access to the slopes pay off, as the four other member teams may be finding out. Their mistake was made in not realizing that ASU didn ' t get the name of " Cool School " for nothing. 40 WOMEN ' S ATHLETICS BACK HAND ALLEY 4 42 43 FLAIL AWAYl! WOMEN ' S FIELD HOCKEY IS ONE OF THE ROUGHEST SPORTS IN THE WORLD. THE LADY APRS PROVED TO BE TOUGH ENOUGH TO KEEP THE BALLS GOING. SPIKE DIGS OUT r1 ' - Ut mt RACKING UP POINTS The winningest college basketball coach on campus this season is not Bobby Cremins. That distinction goes to Dr. Judy Clarke, the women ' s basketball mentor who has coached on the college level for eleven years, seven of which were at the University of Iowa. Under her tutelage the Lady Apps have become the strongest team since ASU first fielded a women ' s basketball team back in 1969. With the basketball season only weeks away, Judy Clarke expects her squad to finish first in the Large College Conference with a record of fifteen wins and a scant two losses; that record despite a slate of opponents that included tough teams from UNC-G, Carolina, Western Carolina, East Carolina, Virginia Tech and State. The ' 75- ' 76 version of the Lady Apps was narrowed from forty-five talented enthusiasts to the final fifteen. Most of the girls on the squad were outstanding players in North Carolina high schools, a few of whom were granted basketball scholarships. Coach Clarke runs her team through daily two hour drills, five days a week. She stresses the running game and a sticky, pressing, woman-to-woman defense. Obviously her team learned their lessons well. The Lady Apps averaged over 72 points per game while shooting at a 48 per cent clip. Those statistics are formidable in any conference. The Lady Apps are paced by team playmaker, Fran Allen, the only senior on the starting five. Allen steadies the sq uad with her maturity and experience. Carol Almond, a freshman roundballer, is the leading scorer on the team with a fourteen-plus points per game average. Junior transfer from Sandhills, Cheryl Brewer plays tight defense and carries an eleven points average. The other starters are Janet Gordon and Jane Albright. With this nucleus the Lady Apps disting- uished themselves by placing second in the Winthrop Invitational Basketball Tournament, the oldest women ' s basketball tournament in the Southeast. They reached the finals against teams from Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina. The outlook is bright for the Lady Apps. They only lose one starter from the best ASU squad in history, and they have another plus in their favor. They have Judy Clarke as a coach. 46 FHE MOUNTAINEER MERMAIDS )AVEY JONES LOCKER IT ISN ' T AT ALL! 47 Rings and Bars Looks Like the Graceful Contortionists are at It Again BUMPS BRUISES AND BROKEN BONES The intramural program plays an important part of campus life at Appalachian. It meets the needs of students living both on and off campus. The program provides activities for team, individual, dual, co-recreational, structured, and unstructured participation. The intramural bulletin board, in the lobby of Broome-Kirk Gym, contains current information relating to sign-up procedures, coming events, schedules, and team standings. Schedules are posted on Friday for the upcoming week. Intramural Highlights is a weekly newspaper published by the Intramural Office. It contains coverage of games, ' standings, point totals, and coming events.

" Appalachian ' s marching band, widely known as " The Band of Distinction, " is one of the hardest working groups on campus. The precision group practices regularly during the football season, and attends a pre-registration workshop in late summer to polish routines and practice the tight routines that have made the group so popular. Most observers would agree that " The Band of Distinction " is far superior to most of the bands they encounter during the football season, and one reason for this is that the members take the hypothetical " contest of bands " at half-time as seriously as the players take the game itself. They refer to playing against other schools and take pride in their superiority. Joe Phelps, director of the band, believes that talent and hard work must combine to make a band good. His musicians, flag girls, majorettes and drum major spend hours preparing for each encounter with the fans and the other bands. Phelps credits drum major Sam Powers with much of the cohesion and spirit of the band. " The Band of Distinction " is not a show band relying of sweeping pageantry for effect, but is a precision marching group, depending on crispness and execution for its effect. The members each receive one hour of academic credit, for which they march in the rain, endure angry football players running into them, and exhaust themselves during the part of a football game when many fans are at their least attentiveness. It all takes heart and dedication, and ASU ' s band has these, for it has the old-fashioned school spirit, almost to the point of overdose. Last year the band played at Charlotte ' s Memorial Stadium, and this year they performed with Nelson Rockefeller at the Bicentennial Experience at Kings Mountain. All such recognition that the band receives is more than deserved. 53 T «i; L Is JwU - o APR FLAGGERS LEND PAGENTRY TO BAND, HALFTIME, AND CONRAD 56 Boots and Spangels The majorettes really liven things up 57 CHEERING: THE SPIRIT OF ASU Trish MacDonald is a senior majoring in marketing.

Greg French and Mike Bright were selected to the All Conference team. BASEBALL: Coach Jim Morris ' baseball Mountaineers, led by two time, all Southern conference shortstop, Mike Ramsey, scratched out a 20-16 record and a fourth place finish in conference standings. Beset with early season injuries to as many as five key players, Morris ' nine made a gallant surge in the second half of the season only to be derailed in a doubleheader at Furman. Morris predicts better things to come in ' 76. BASKETBALL: Coming off a dismal ' 74- ' 75 season in which the hi ghlights were only two — a home win over ECU and the season ' s final buzzer and reprieve — the ASU five was given little chance for even mediocrity despite the announcement of Bobby Cremins ' hiring as head coach. Cremins, however, went immediately to work with assistants Gene Littles and Kevin Cantwell to re-establish respectability in Alumni Gyn. On the heels of a successful recruiting trek to New York State, Cremins rewrote the chapters on strategy and attitude in the ASU book of basketball and employed the Normandy invasion tactic of fresh recruits and relentless pursuit. (Alumni Gym hadn ' t had such a transfusion since John Trimpey bit into a half-cooked B.I. quarter- pounder in 1973.) With a revived crowd and a legitimate team, the ASU Mountaineers pressed and pursued that elusive .500 season from opening tip-off to the last second of regular season. Records set during the historic season included one for the number of assists in a single game (ss vs. Furman), number of Southern Conference games won (6), and consecutive SC wins (4). Other achievements included the first road win in South Carolina (against Furman), and first ever wins over Furman, Davidson and VMI. In addition, Cremins ' first ASU team recorded the highest finish (4th or 5th) in the school ' s short history in the Southern Confernece. BOWLING: The Rhodo Rooters, a team comprised of Steve Yaeger, Mort Dark, Jack Dillard and Captain Rod Smith representing the ASU school yearbook, struck and spared their way to the Intercollegiate Duck Pins Tournament held at Vasco de Gama Bowling Lanes, Newport News. Virginia. Their trophy is presently encased in the Alumni Gym showcase. FOOTBALL: Jim Brakefield and boys completed another successful season in the Southern Conference (eight wins, three losses) and set a number of school and conference records in the process. Team records were numerous. ASU led the SC in total offense, rushing offense, and points scored. The Mountaineers humiliated Lenoir Rhyne with a record 654 yards on a record number (77) of rushes, fewest punts (0), most first downs (35), and most first downs rushing (31). Team season records included most field goals (15). most yards gained (3450), and most rushing plays (693). Individual records included most field goals (15 by Gary Davis), most points kicking (81 by Davis), longest field goal (51 by Davis vs. East Tennessee), and longest scoring pass (81 yards. Price to Ford). Robbie Price led the Southern Conference in total offense; Emmitt Hamilton was first in rushing; Joe Parker, first in punting; Devon Ford in punt returns; and Gary Davis in conference scoring. In addition, the Mountaineer gridders placed Robbie Price and Tommy Sofield on the Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American team and eight players on All-Southern Conference. GOLF: Francis Hoover ' s linksmen stroked their way to an undefeated (7-0) season in dual matches in ' 75. They went on to place a disappointing third place (one point behind runner-up East Carolina) in the conference TENNIS: The ASU tennis team methodically wrapped up another conference championship ( ' 75) behind the leadership of Keith Richardson, Mister Tennis at ASU for four years. Besides a trophycase full of gold, Richardson left behind a heritage of success and good sportsmanship to be emulated for years. While at ASU Keith Richardson set a record for the most career wins (103) as he became the first conference player since 1952 to win three consecutive singles champion- ships along with two doubles trophies. His career record of 103-15 will be a footnote in the ASU tennis record books for some time. SOCCER: The ASU soccer team under the guidance of Coach Vaughn Christian posted a fourth straight conference championship on the books and received the school ' s first NCAA postseason tournament invitation in that sport. During the course of the season, the ASU hooters ran a consecutive win string to nineteen games as Christian, chosen coach of the year for the second year, was backed by five All Conference players (David Mor, Frank Kemo, Fernando Ojeda, Mike Sheppard, and Dan Harrell) including player of the year, Mor. TRACK AND FIELD: Louis Blount and Rick Shriver scored impressive wins in the conference meet, respectively, in the two-mile and three-mile races as the ASU track team placed 4th in overall standings. HIRED: As head coach of the ASU basketball team. Bobby Cremins, who at 28 became the youngest NCAA major university head coach, and Gene Littles, a three time small college All-American from High Point College and an original Carolina Cougar, as assistant to Cremins.

Maddox Atlanta, Ga. .S. — Do you have any extra broken bats I 3uld have? ear Editor, Of all the aspects of sports at ASU the least ivorable is that d athletic fee. I ' m a senior t ASU and I have yet to attend an athletic vent, yet I have been required by this ickpocket fee system to pay to attend, onetheless. I seriously doubt that I will ever ttend an athletic event, that is unless they :hedule one at the Rock or at a frat party. You must be thinking that my view is rather xtreme, well bear with me as I explain. The roblem is my girlfriend, she ' s a true follower f Avery Brundage. Because of her strict edication to amateurism she refuses to ttend any campus athletic event. She laintains that because the jocks get free food, cholarships, fringe benefits, etc., that they re being paid or bribed to participate, ilthough she does have some valid points, I ist can ' t come to complete agreement with er position. To solve the problem I tried getting her ;ood and drunk and dragging her to the game, ' hat didn ' t work. When she gets drunk she lecomes as friendly as a rabbit and we got lelayed and missed the game. Considering such circumstances, I don ' t nind missing the sporting events, (especially vhen I score more than the team does), but it nakes me so d mad to have to pay for a eat I don ' t get to use. ' Do you have any suggestions that could lelp me out of this dilemma? Thank You, Iza Dickinson Blowing Rock Appalachian won ' t achieve any level of big time basketball until we get a full time recruiter-assistant.

George Ledonk Roberts Sirs: I ' m sick and tired of hearing complaints from students about how our jocks get a free ride through school. I, for one, am proud of our jocks. Our football team has finally given Appalachian a name. No longer do people ask me, " Appalachian, what in the blank is that? " I ' m proud of our teams. And Coach Cremins has actually been able to give us a winning basketball team. At least we ' ve won more than three games this year. So quit complaining. Everyone knows that if you have a good athletic department, you ' ve a good school. Just look at State, Carolina, and Maryland! A Concerned Student I am not an athlete but I have long been interested in sports. Here at Appalachian we have a great athletic program and I would like to thank everyone that is involved with athletics at Appalachian. A strong athletic program is far more important than academics in establishing a school ' s prestige. This year has seen great strides of progress in football, basketball, and many other teams. Again I offer my hardy congratulations and sincere thanks to all the coaches, athletes, and cheerleaders for making Appalachian a better school. A. P. Sartor Deep Gap, N.C. Dear Sports Illustrated, I want to tell everybody that something has to be done about the way the varsity gym is left after those poplar programs people get through with one of those concerts. Those people that come to the concerts bring in bottles, cigarettes, and spill stuff and mess up the gym and ruin the floor. And something else, after one of those unruly crowds has been through there it makes it a lot harder on the gym ' s staff because they have to work extra hard to clean it up and they are a bunch of good old boys and I don ' t think it ' s fair. That gym was built for us athletes and thats what it ought to be used for. There are plenty of good places that those concerts could be held and I think that they would be better than the gym. I fully support the admenistration in their efforts to curb the concert crowd. The gym should not be a concert hall. It is a place for the athelete, for sweating, for straining, for the depths of defeat, for the pincikle of victory. It is a place for the buUding of the temple of the body. Thank You, B.

The Blue Ridge: A Heritage in Peril The majesty of the Blue Ridge has been recorded in the aged tales of this land ' s first inhabitants. Songs of reverence and sighs of awe voiced in tribute to the sculpture and color of the landscape still wend ever-so-softly through chasm and ravine, eternal echoes of devotion. The tale goes: the Master Craftsman, the One Great Spirit, overseer of nature, true patron of all art, once paced the creek beds and doe trails of the Appalachian Range midafternoons and midnights to view the splendor of his handicraft. The Blue Ridge was the garden of his heart, a gift to man, his flower. The barn owl winging through spruce and hemlock, red bucks roving grassy vegas, the oxeye daisy winking at the sun, these were the pigments of his panorama; staccato of wood pecker, cree-scree-scree of cricket, and babble of brook, his soundtrack. The Blue Ridge was the masterpiece of his art, and man became both beneficiary and curator. Cooper, cobbler, smith, potter, cook — all trades of men journeyed to the ancient monuments of Applachia to seek their dreams and spend their passions. The Blue Ridge embraced them all. A natural bond developed as the spirit of the Appalachians — that ■•-i-iJi « ; ' of independence, resourcefulness, and pride — became the spirit of the mountaineer. Gifts of the Blue Ridge — Sour Johns, coarse linsey-woolsey, hoecake and hominy, molasses, corn meal mush — endeared the mountain people to the land. Mountain fiddles and five-string banjoes celebrated the joys of the heart, as clear and lively as mountain streams. Men swollen with pride and devotion pampered and protected the land, their livelihood. Blackgum, sassafras, lady slipper, wild plum, spotted spurges; possum, otter, mountain sheep, beaver, wild pheasant — elements of nature became subjects of folk ballads and mountain yarns. The Master Craftsman was well pleased. He walked on, content. This majesty of the Blue Ridge can yet be seen; its song can still be heard. The deciduous and evergreen trees are standing, but in smaller numbers. The mountaineer stock still sing " Sweet William, " and highlanders still probe the blaze with fire dogs, but they ' ve fled into the depths of Appalachia. There ' s sadness in their songs. There ' s resignation in their gait. A force has taken hold of their land, their na " :! " " . •.. ' .♦ . lives and deprived them of their pride and birthright. Fiddle, bow, and banjo pick have been replaced by sledge and shovel; diesel roar and screech of brake have subdued the cricket ' s song. Water- mills no longer turn. Chestnuts go unbaked. The land of the Watauga has been abandoned by its reverent children, invaded by the infidel. Parking lots now stretch where quaint graveyards once marked the drama of the past. Bulldozers raze the raccoon ' s home, indifferent to its young. The laurel and the rhododendron have been sacrificed for neoned franchise and unsightly billboard. The Appalachian spirit has surrendered to the scourge of greed; the land is now fair game to speculators who sing a song of money. Gone are the barn owls that once knew unpolluted skies. Gone are the red bucks to virgin timber. The Master Craftsman no longer strolls the range or riverbed in song. He is silent in his pacing. The echoes of past songs are faint but fading. Will they ever be revived? " Don ' t it always seem to go That you don ' t know what you ' ve got Till it ' s gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot " Joni Mitchell ' • S . r - A VANISHING PRIDE " I think that I shall never see A billboard lovely as a tree Perhaps, unless the billboards fall I ' ll never see a tree at all " Ogden Nash 6 Southern Living " I will build a motor car for the great multitudes . . . But it will be so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one — and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God ' s great open spaces. " Henry Ford ■ ■s ' Ci- , .-- May 1976 7 mi AlTk ASU PRESENTS-POPULAR PROGRAMS by Juliann Morris Composed of a diverse group of students from the Appalachian campus, the Popular Programs Committee has been working hard to provide entertainment ranging from bluegrass to L.A. rock ' n roll. The committee has doubled in membership since last year. They have also spent more time advertising upcoming attractions which has improved attendance immensely. All people attending the concerts have been following the smoking and drinking regulations very well. September brought Vassar Clements, his fiddle, and his rock-a-billy style of music to ASU. Clements has played with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Richard Betts of the Allman Brothers, and he has also played second fiddle in the movie Nashville. Approximately 3,000 tickets were sol d for the concert and the audience responded very well. Linda Ronstadt, on tour through the Southeast, sold out all 6,000 seats in the Varsity Gym on October 24. Andrew Gold, lead guitarist for her band, opened the show and was followed by surprise guests. Goose Creek Symphony. On November 2, Appala- chia ' s own Doc Watson appeared before 700 locals to perform a fine selection of country-bluegrass-gospel music. Also playing with Doc was his son, Merle Watson. His talent on the steel guitar was greatly appreciated by all. They were both accompanied by Frosty Morn Band, featuring piano, bass and acoustic guitars, and washboard. •v y- -if ' ' 10 Southern Living 4 Jaz DOC MERLE WATSON { f May 1976 11 LINDA R0N8TADT : f : m : ' • Southern Living t. v. ifc- HOMECOMING m ' 75 ASV VS.

Headliners in the Major Lecture Series included syndicated columnist and Washington sex symbol Art Buchwald, who rambled about politics and social institutions with his humor-spiced monologue. Gene Roddenberry. producer of Star Trek, and Euell Gibbons, the charming nutritionist who can eat his way out of any quandry. The Major Fine Arts Series offered several treats during the year. " Visions of Power. " a mosaic of music and the sorcery of Carlos Castenada ' s Don Juan, brought Burgess Meredith and flutist Charles Lloyd to Boone. The Tokyo String Quartet brought the music of Bartok, while the Charlotte Symphony, directed by Jacques Brourman and accompanied by guest artist Grant Johannesen, played to a full house in late September. Afficionados of the dance enjoyed the improvisations of the Mimi Garrard Dance Company with their exotic lighting and multiple innuendo and nuance of movement in December; the Houston Ballet under Nina Papova pleased lovers of the more conventional dance forms. Across campus, in the L G. Greer Auditorium, music lovers appreciated the Chamber Series in more intimate quarters. The series opened with the delicate artistry of the Panocha String Quartet from Prague, and after Christmas shifted to the solo performance of world-traveled harpsichordist Robert Hill, whose broad repertoire delighted the audience. The real change of pace in the series came in early April, when Kentucky dulcimer player and mountain music authority Jean Ritchie brought a little foot-stomping to Greer. Her fame proved to be justified, as a large crowd turned but to enjoy her down-home renditions. The Artist and Lecture Series attempts to bring both quality and variety of entertainment to the finely attuned university and town residents. This past year, they succeeded again.

Wit ' s End Coffeehouse, located on the second floor of the Student Union, offers live acts regularly and occasionally a few dead ones (but floors are swept each night). Approximately every other week for three or four nights, students may relax to a cup of home-perked coffee and assorted munchables while enjoying a variety of talent. The real bargain is the fact that the cost is nil, goose egg, skunk wages, your free boat to R R. What ; the showmanship lacks commercial professionalism? The coffeehouse circuit has long been the showcase for professionals-to-be in the music world and the world of comedy. Accordingly, Wit ' s End Coffeehouse has sponsored acts which represent all stages of the professional career. Some acts are polished in stage presence, some have already achieved a professional sound, while others are in the process of adjustment and refinement, but they all have several common traits, including authenticity and sincerity. Solo acts that appeared at Wit ' s End in the past include Tim Bays in late August ' 75, Jan Owen in September, Bill Ward in October, and Perry Leopold, early November. Groups such as the Blue River Boys, Free Spirit String Bank, Stoney Creek, Hull and Roche, and Leather Britches performed to enthusiastic audiences throughout the school year. Don ' t be too surprised if one or more of these acts springs the Wit ' s End boards to million dollar concert tours, celebrity tee-shirts, and Merv Griffin.

The New York Touring Co. presented ASU students with its rendition of " 1776. " The bicentennial musical, written by a history teacher, starred Terry Di Marco as Benjamin Franklin, and Gary Marachek as John Adams. If slightly uncoordinated lighting, an inadequate sound system, and bleacher- type atmosphere could be ignored, the elaborate costumery and professional acting made an enjoyable and educational evening. Chapel Wilson Auditorium held a sellout audience each night for the ASU produc- tion of " The Crucible " on October 21-24th. Arthur Miller ' s moving social comment provoked audience encouragement and insults. The play centered around the Salem witch trials of 1692 and starred Charlie Ross as Abigail, a blend of innocence and wanton determination. Other|noteworthy characterizations were Tom Wilson ' s John Proctor, Kerry Knapp ' s cold Elizabeth Proctor, Jim Flynn ' s imposing Governor Danforth, and Chuck Roger ' s cringing Reverend Parris. fe|g«||r Av; ' ; ' - ' :-- r- ' - ' | 3IH| C l l VL ' ' I An H F ' Xr ' SMitaV K l m M H r K A Bi t m ' l BNi l ■ " «7 fl l The show was very technically impressive also; designer Peter Rose divided the stage into two areas each furnished with the plain furniture of the colonial period. Costumes, by Susan Day. conveyed the stark primness of the women and ministers. The striking tightness of production and casting under the direction of Ed Pilkington brought the audience to their feet after each perform ance. Native American Humor compiled and directed by Linda Welden played several selections from folk literature on September 25 and 26. The pieces were introduced by Steve Burris and Julie Plott and interspersed with song by a five piece string band. The Adventures of Hnckleberry Finn was a popular piece with Jody Parker as Huck. Twain ' s Innocents Abroad was well done by Tony Werst and Joey Toler. The final two selections from Richard Chase ' s Grandfather Tales were directed by G.O. Carswell. The final selection " Pack Down the Big Chest " was an obvious audience pleasing selection with a fine performance by Charlie Ross. " Tales of a Different Color, " an education class project was conceived as a teaching device utilization and was directed by Buck Knowles. Students of the class acted out tales of American folk literature for the children and adults. " The Servant of Two Masters " by Carlo Goldoni was performed in Chapel Wilson Auditorium December 2-4, 1975. It was directed by an Appalachian senior, G.O. Carswell. To honors went to Mark Wilson in the title role of Truffaldino, the servant of two masters, and to Kathleen Fletcher, the costume designer.

May 1976 31 ■ Making the Most of Your Room Walking into a room with three walls, one window, and a bare floor can be a horrible experience if you are not prepared to do some decorating and arranging. When your dorm room is also your roommate ' s room, the lack of space and privacy can be unnerving. The best way to cope with this situation is to turn your close quarters into a sleeping-living complex, utilizing space-making ideas. The furnishings are already there — two built-in closets, two desks, two beds and a dresser. It is evident that these were not made for space-saving or a great deal of mobility. There are only so many ways to arrange what you have. The key is to produce as much room as possible without cluttering. A good idea is to place furniture so as tc create two separate areas - sleeping and living. This adds a touch ol privacy. Obviously you cannot knock out the walls, but your room can be made tc appear larger with the use of wal ' decorations, furniture, carpet, curtains, knick-knacks, and plants. To give the illusion of roominess, keep as much open space as possible so the eye can move freely around the room; shy away from dark, dull colors. Your window should be free of cluttei so you can project yourself outside oi bring some of the outdoors right intc your room. Color schemes add life to a room. It is often hard to have dominating colors because you and your roommate do noi Mm Bm " " " DOWN HOME COOKIN ' A delicious variety of folk cookery to satisfy your stomach and sooth your throat. Don ' t let nobody tell you any different, they ain ' t nothing in this world like eating, be it a country meal of chick peas with pickle relish, chunk ham right off the bone, followed by a flaky-crusted blueberry pie, or be it a winter bowl of all-day soup and a plate of buttery biscuits. That ' s all good eating. You can be sure of that. But there ' s a way of cooking that ' s always gotten the short end of the ladle, and that ' s mountain cooking. You folks, though, are in store for a treat. Today ' s column is devoted exclusively to savory mountain dishes that readers sent in. Excuse me while I drool. Razzleford B. Harwood This first recipe comes from Mark Trail of Comique Strip, Tennessee, who writes, " When I was nothing but a youngun, my pappy, who was a rabbit hunter before me, showed me the right way to roast a rabbit. What you do is. you get you some young rabbits and stick them in a rotisserie where you can brush them with butter ever so often. To get the true, backwoods flavor, you don ' t put none of them fancy sauces on your rabbits — nothing but butter, and roast them just until they ' re tender. Y ' all city people who have one of them new- fangled ovens can set it at 325° and roast your rabbits in an uncovered pan, the same way. They make for some fine eating. " An unusual but tasty recipe was sent in by Mrs. Doe Ross of Cherokee, N.C. It was passed down to Mrs. Ross b her mama, who was a Cherokee Indian. Here ' s what she says about it: " When I was a girl, and our family lived in an old log cabin down by the Tennessee River, my mama used to fix all sorts of Cherokee dishes for us. One of my favorites was yellowjacket soup. To make this, you find a nest oi ground-dwelling yellowjackets eithei early in the morning or in the late afternoon, and you gather the whole comb. Then you put it over the fire oi the stove, right side up, until all the uncovered grubs are loosened. You remove them and put the comb back in the heat until it parches. Next you pick out all the yellowjackets and pop them in the oven so they ' ll get good and brown. You make the soup by boiling the browned yellowjackets in a pot oi water with salt and grease. It ' s sure tc give you a buzz. " Miss Aggie Lazarus, a 106-year-old native of Possum Hollow, S.C., sends an old family recipe for a dandy gourmet dish, batter-fried dandelion blossoms: " This was a favorite dish of my great-granny Lazarus, who used to serve it to the ladies of her village at quilting parties. She ' d go out and pick the newest, tenderest dandelion blossoms — those are the best because the greens haven ' t got too bitter yet — and rinse them in cold, salty water. Then she ' d cut the stems off, roll the jlossoms in sacking (most folks lowadays use paper towels) to blot up :he water, and dip them in a batter she ' d mixed up from a beaten egg, a :up of fresh milk, a cup of flour, and a ittle salt and pepper. After that she Tied them nice and brown in some ieep hot grease and served them right jp hot to the quilting ladies. Some- :imes she used squash or pumpkin blossoms. Whichever, they were ' amous all over Chitlin County. " This next recipe here comes from mother woman whose mother was a " uU-blooded Cherokee, Mrs. Sally Vluddywater of Teepee Creek, N.C.: ' First you gather your hickory nuts ind let them dry in front of the fire. When they ' ve got dry you crack them — Ma would put them on a big flat •ock in a basket and beat them with a ittle rock — and then you sieve them :hrough a sieve basket. After that you put all the kernels and the hulls that ;ame through the sieve in the corn- jeater and mash them until they ' re Fine enough so you can roll them into aalls. You can save the balls for three Dr four days if it ain ' t too warm, and ivhen you get ready for some soup you just put a couple of balls in a pot and pour boiling water over them, stirring [he whole time. You can make a thick soup with dumplings or a thin soup to drink. Just don ' t drink the last bit Jecause it ' s got hulls in it. " always like the same ones. Comple- mentary schemes are usually the best to use as you build and add to your collection of room furnishings. Avoid repetitious coloring so that with some thought your color patterns can flow around the room. Cover the walls of your room with interesting posters, wall hangings and shelves. But don ' t over-do it because you might defeat your whole purpose. Curtaining your windows can soften the total effect of the room. Curtains are more pleasant to look at than blinds and provide privacy from the outside. Adding plants to the window sill is a great way to cultivate a jungle and to bring freshness and variety into the room. Indirect lighting gives your room a softer look and adds to the illusion of space. Lamps are a definite asset, as are pillows and throw cushions. One of the best investments seems to be a stereo system. Also, if you plan to add any furnishings you might try component furniture. These are usually stackable and provide much- needed storage space. Your dorm room does not have to be overcrowded, ugly, and unlivable. With some planning and work you can make it as comfortable as home, and if you watch what you are buying — looking for potential versatility — you can create a place that you enjoy coming home to after a long day around campus. m m i 1 1 1 . - V I IIIII n 1 1 1 i ; i )m v : ifflwii oavQ Iin ftAOityfof Df ESSEK CZD Bed n rnnm 6eo 2 2 UN I AnFAPf AY| SiRFV LANE rHARinTTF. I CAM SEE iFOfiEVER PGi ■1 WW m M:i: ' li: In most college towns there are two iossibilities open to film viewers; the 3cal theaters and the on-campus ilms. Usually the theaters can be elied upon to present the newer lovies, those currently touring the ountry, and the school film series can e counted on to present some of the lOvies that have lasted over the years nd become classics. ASU students are ubjected to an unhappy variation of his arrangement. The three local theaters, The Appalachian, The Flick and The Chalet, seem to realize that they have captive audience in Boone. With ' harlotte, Asheville and Winston- alem all close to a hundred miles way, the students must depend upon hese three theaters to provide ommercial cinematic entertainment, ut all three theaters fall short of xpectation. The Appalachian has two utstanding faults, despite its iteresting antiquated construction: he manager seems partial to Disney- ype films, and he has a tendency to ilay a hit to death. How long did AWS play? Too long. How long did " HE TRIAL OF BILLY JACK grace he screen? Too long. How many times as THE APPLE DUMPLING GANG ilayed in Boone in the last six months? " hree, for a total of five weeks playing ime. The Appalachian also has a endency to advertise pictures that lever come, such as THE DAY OF " HE LOCUST and THE WIND AND " HE LION. The late shows could be a lositive feature, but the offerings are lim: Burt Reynolds movies and losers hat come cheap. Marx Brothers omedies and other classics used to ppear regularly, but that era is over. The Flick offers great hits like JENJIE and WHERE THE LILLIES 5L00M for weeks on end, delaying uch movies as CHINATOWN, which I aw in Sante Fe in July, 1974. Saw it .gain at The Flick in the fall of ' 75, its irst Boone run. The " Dirty Late ihow " seems to be the most attractive eature about The Flick, and even the light owls get tired of the same pump ind spew of sex, week after week. Vhen was the last time The Flick bowed a movie made from a good took? God knows — I guess. When Rosalie Hanley managed The rhalet theaters, students had a good hing going for them. She tried to iring movies that suited the college mentality to Boone and featured late shows like THE BOYS IN THE BAND and WOMEN IN LOVE, modern classics, the kind of movies that Pauline Kael actually takes the time to review. But that, too, has passed, for now we get THE DEVIL ' S RAIN or ATTACK OF THE GIANT SPIDER MONSTERS regularly. Pablum. The Chalet did present Mel Brooks FRANKENSTEIN, but twice in four months? Wouldn ' t it be nice to see a film with Alan Bates, Glenda Jackson, Lawrence Olivier or Jack Nicholson within six months of the time it premiered, at least before it becomes a cinema cliche? Unless the situation alters radically, the possibility of that is nil. Perhaps we should expect the regular movies on campus to be old, worn-out slick films that come cheaper by the dozen. And perhaps we should be grateful for the occasional FIVE EASY PIECES that shows up at Whitener Hall. This year the film committee even presented SHIP OF FOOLS and CITIZEN KANE. With films showing every Sunday and regularly on Thursday and Friday nights, a few good ones are bound to show up. But the real salvation of Movie-goers (Walker Percy excluded) is the series of films that is shown on Tuesdays and accompanies the cinema appreciation class given by the English Department. Every semester foreign films by such artists as Bergman, Fellini, Kurosawa or Godard are shown, along with such American classics as ON THE WATERFRONT, THE BIG SLEEP, TO HAVE AND TO HAVE NOT. Unfortunately, the people who are in charge of the actual technical projection of these films are the same fumblers who have become famous by screwing up the Sunday films. They have only a basic knowledge of the equipment and display unparalleled nonchalance when the film breaks or the speakers don ' t work or the reels are reversed. Sad, sad, sad. The sheer quantity and variety of films that the Boone viewer can attend is perhaps the only redeeming factor in a barrage of apathy and commercial- ism that confronts him. Some of the movies that come to Boone are good, but most are either glossy trash or they stay for only a brief time. Perhaps this condition reflects the tastes of the Boone viewers accurately; perhaps it reflects the fact that theater owners are not the people who view film as an art. They might as well manage another hamburger joint. There ' s more money in it. Cider Time A recipe that ' s certain to be a favorite was given to us by Mr. Homer Mudphuzzle of Cow Drop, Tennessee, who writes, " Out here on the farm we don ' t have too much excitement. So, to add a little kick to our long winter evenings, me and the wife mix up a little batch of hard apple cider every fall. To do this, we just wash some apples, all different kinds, and mash them up in a tub with a piece of timber. Then we pour the juice into fermenting jars and add 2 Campden tablets, to kill all them germs, for every V gallons. If you want sweet cider, you need to add about one cup of sugar to the gallon. Next we add yeast with the nutrient and let it ferment till it ' s good and dry. We rack our cider in beer bottles we get free from my brother-in-law, who runs a pool hall over on the County Home Road, but you can put it in any kind of bottle as long as you prime each pint with a teaspoon of sugar. We usually let ours age about three months, but I wouldn ' t keep it no longer than nine months. You can count on about a gallon for every fifteen pounds of apples. " May 1976 35 AROUND CAMPUS Grand Central Station on this campus is located inside the Student Union. From this point one can sense the momentum of daily campus life as the ebb and flow fluctuates to the demands of scheduling. The Student Union is the great switching station as students pause to retrack between destinations and obligations or to derail upon completion of a mission. Quite often the Union snack bar becomes a refueling stop for the leg weary and the fed up. With the campus post office, the Dogwood Art Gallery, The Appalachian news drop, and the student lounge located within the confines of the Union, it is a natural spot to which students converge between classes and during free time. It therefore maintains this Grand Central hustle-bustle, especially during peak hours. A game room on the second floor of the Union invites loafers and break- takers to try a hand at ping-pong, foosball or pinball for a respite from the daily grind. The campus billiard hall and bowling alley, as well, entice passers-by with their respective sounds. And the upstairs lounge with newsrack and music corner lures malingerers and go-getters alike to soft couches and dim lights. There young lovers succumb to the Siren ' s 36 Southern Living song of comfort and, thus, while away the fleeting hours in firm embrace and lip-lock. Students have always been quick to take advantage of the Union ' s many leisurely offerings and have through the course of time established it as the unofficial mecca of student lounging. By no means is the Student Union the end-all and the be-all of loungery. The A.S.U. campus is known world- wide for free time antics and between- class frivolity on Sanford Mall and around the Bookstore ogle court. On the square and on the turf the future Einsteins, Edisons, and Abzugs can be seen diligently pursuing frisbees in the sun or contemplating extra-curricular backsides in various states of sway. On warm afternoons hill number nine, just above the mall, is regularly a patchwork of freaks, sun-worshippers, misfits, goddesses and gapers in numberous stages of repose and dress. Occasionally, the local chapter of Dogs Anonymous will honor on-lookers with its presence by performing acts and frisky, backdoor gags. These impromptu presentations inevitably highlight the social events of the day and leave the audiences stage-struck, yet aware of their own inadequacies. The library, always considered the heart and soul of any educational institution of high learning, doubles on the A.S.U. campus as cell block rec room strato-lounger. In the sofa areas of Belk Library students find time to take a load off the dogs and tour slumberland. The accurate implication here is that the scholarly snooze is a cut above normal snoozing, the significant difference lying in the fact that a library couch has a certain academic exposure that home furniture does not. Then there is the library magazine rack and newspaper room where A.S.U. inmates keep in touch with current events, ball scores, and Ann Landers of the other world; where cell mates log time in scholarly masquerade; and where good behavior means time off of the four year sentence. The hard-core and the two-time Dsers are necessarily confined Isewhere on campus. Regularly they ppear in line-ups before the Student Inion boob-tubes where they are ubjected to mass doses of torture and lain — soap operas driven under the ingernails — in efforts of rehabilita- ion. The last stop on the schedule of the 3unge express is the B.I., that |uasi-nightclub cafe with the short- irder cuisine. Therein the moody nidnight of pen-light illumination, lungry caboose-niks may trade in their icket stubs for everything from fun to udgesicles and perform the final act of tudent loungery. So prop your feet ip. Sit a spell. There ' s plenty of time or study later. May 1976 39 M . c«i s »«n. Again students tackled the registration maze. The frustration of long lines was only surpassed by the disappointments often waiting at the end. Confusion and bewildered faces abounded, but in the end most students satisfactorily adjusted to campus life. Registration — A Chaotic Beginning For Appalachian Students The students of Appalachian re- turned to Boone for registration this year during the last week in August and found the usual complications and extensive lines intensified due to the confusion involved in switching from the quarter system to the semester system. While the freshmen were busy confronting the novelty of registration, many of the veterans of previous campaigns found themselves con- cerned with general college require- ments, completion of sequences, pass- fail option and adjustment of pre- registration schedules. The over-nine thousand students also discovered that many of the courses required were closed out due to the unexpected increase in stu- dents. As a result, many had to settle for alternative courses or join already over-crowded sections. Although the administration 40 Southern Living claimed to have refined the registra- tion process and eliminated prolonged waiting in lines, many students re- fused to be convinced. According to one senior, " The lines were as long as last year, and there were more of them. I especially resented standing in line for an over-priced parking stick- er. " Graduate student Glenn Wilson added, " This place is a circus for sure! " And a bewildered freshman, laden with forms and instructions and wandering from one table in the gym to another finally shouted, " Please God, help me! " These difficulties with the academic end of campus life were accompanied by equal problems in the domestic realm. Many students arrived in Boone with carloads of clothing, books, furniture and other collegiate equipment only to discover that for them there was " no room in the inn. " Those who had not reserved dorm rooms, apartments or houses often found themselves without a place to stay. Every year Boone swells to many times its natural size with the advent of classes, but this year saw landlords with the upper hand moreso than ever before, for it was a supplier ' s market. Even the legendary Ivy Hall was full for the first time in a decade, and many dorm rooms held three students. Despite the crowded conditions, the confusion resulting from the conver- sion to the semester system and the swollen feet and frayed tempers, the students of Appalachian managed to settle down and enjoy the last weeks of summer in Boone, where the fall colors had not yet appeared and the inclina- tion to study had not yet set in in many cases. May 1976 41 4.1 v . ' V • o. i. - Graduation — An End A New Beginning h the college diploma the great vocational passport coveted by all or just another insignificant report card? An ASU student presents two versions of the graduation game. yj J Golden Fleece Job. . . The quest for knowledge . . . romantic notion, noble venture, way of life, ideal. Certainly, a passion that has gripped countless men throughout time. The quest for undergraduate diploma . . . diversionary tactic, big business ploy, franchise packaging, Never-never-Land . Put a fence around your average U.S. college campus and what have you? A megalo-Lucy Brock finishing school for American boys and girls. A handy sandbox world wherein witless thumbsuckers are weaned on propagandist pabulum to believe in the Holy Four Year Quest and a brighter day. What is this quest, this buffer zone when examined closely? Four more years in the womb. Incubator politics at work. Shelter from the storm. Final preparations for Dick and Jane to leave the nest, protected by illusory ' promises of higher salaries, self- bespect, smooth sailing. Southern Living What goes on inside the fence? Dreamland dances around the Maypole, each dancer gripping tightly his particular streamer of self deception. Articulations of fourth and fifth-hand thoughts. Pencil-pushing behind the guise of fulfilled requirements and better awarenesses. Where does the four year trek lead us? Down the primrose path of deceit: flowery language, double entendre . . . through the jungle of surreality: inner fence distortions of outer fence chaos ... to the two-way mirror of disillusionment, reality. What lies beyond? More sweat, more struggle, grad school? How are we prepared? With cynical Gerber smiles, in our campus T-shirts. ' ' - OR Golden Fleece? What is relevant to man, to students today?Scientific technology? Human- istic psychology? Music? Art? On a grand scale we might suppose as relevant those issues and subjects which specifically effect survival. Over-population. Water and air pollu- tion. Mental health. Diseases. Assum- ing then that man desires prolonged life, we might generally reach agree- ment that these issues are indeed relevant. Cut and dried. Beyond that, however, when we delve into the realm of individual relevance, we must probe the province of subjectivity. On this campus each student is the ultimate perceiver (active or passive) of his own particular brand of rele- vance. This premise we might extend to all of mankind, for what is man but a student of his teacher, time? We all pay tuition in that school. We all do homework. For what, then, does four years of ' i -yf - « - " college and graduation stand? What does it offer? Behind the stacks of reference books and unspindled computer cards, lies a river of minds, of persuasions in which we may emerse ourselves. Beyond methodology and pedagogy, there is the silent fraternal call of nature reviving in us with its subtle persua- siveness our survival sensitivities. In this four year interval we have the opportunity to construct or reconstruct our own realities, our own relevancies. We may contribute as a tributary to the stream of life that passes before us, and we may draw precious water in our thirst. It can all be relevant. What then is graduation? To those who sought relevance, it is more than a certificate of attendance. It is more than a list of credits, a scrapbook of memories, more than a guarantee for better pay. It is an opportunity to evaluate our growth and maturity of four years striving in our eagerness to press on. It is a starting point for further relevance. y 1976 43 Reports of a new Irwin Allen disaster film of a revenge-bent mudslide purported to " have Boone ' s number, " are only partially correct. Charlton Heston will not portray Channel Eight Weatherman Frank Deal, and it don ' t rain in Indianapolis Weather in the summer time. However, the township of Boone will play itself in the blockbuster dramatic interpreta- tion of Daffy Duck ' s autobiography, Nice Weather for Humans. (All ancillary rights will revert to the Duck Pond Retirement Pension Plan for unwed campus ducks after the premiere showing in Boone.) The plot-line goes something like this: Precarious Weather, a worldly gypsy, played by Roone Arledge. predicts impending havoc for the town of Boone with the use of a weather balloon and a feather pen. No one heeds his warning except John Boy, the town idiot, played by TV ' s Mr. Whipple. Soon, strange events occur. Gale Winds and Torrential Downpours check in at the Cardinal Motel. The campus breaks out in a horrible rash. Doc Ashby, played by Robert Redford, calls it the worst case of mud puddles he ' s ever seen. In a matter of hours, rumors circulate about missing cars, lost students, and tracked-in mud as a result of a giant mudslide which has 44 Southern Living overtaken Boone from its blind side. Boone police turn a suspicious eye towards Precarious Weather who ' s only doing his job. Townfolk cry, " Foul! " Precarious says, " Strike two. " And they ' re off and running. Precarious Weather disappears when Sunny Day strolls in from Hickory wearing nothing but a hat pin. The mud cakes thickly quickly. Businesses close up shop. Yogi stops making meatball submarines. Hunt ' s Department Store doesn ' t have a going-out-of-business sale. Pete Moss hangs himself in a willow. The town turns desperate. (Desperate doesn ' t particularly care for it either.) All the main heads get together and compare dandruff. Nobody wins. " What can we do about Boone weather? " Just as the town spokesman starts to give up his spokes, John Boy speaks up, " I know the solution to the weather problem. " The committee falls at his feet in awe. " Aw! " John Boy makes them get out of it. " What do you want, Wise One? " they ask. (They learned their lesson from the last time.) " A fountain in Sanford Mall erected in honor of me, two weeks paid vacation in the Adirondacks, and a drive-in date with Barbara Walters. " " Done! " cry the multitude, and the echo answers, " Done what? " " We grant you all your wishes, Great One. We are pawns in your hands, pissants beneath your feet, hair of your armpits. What is your humble solution? How can we be rid of the anathema of the low pressure front? From the far corners of your wisdom, from the depths of fair play, what, oh what, is the answer? " " Move to Phoenix. " " Good night, John Boy. " The multitude proceeds to bludgeon John Boy to death with a dull pun. They all agree, it ' s better to have inclimate weather than a smartass. May 1976 45 S. p. E. B. S. Q. S. A. In the spring of ' 75 a group known as " Weather Monitors, S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A. " was commissioned by the State Board of ConsoHdated Universities to conduct a thorough and scientific experiment on ASU campus to determine the correlation between Boone weather and class attendance and to arrive at a suitable phraseology for the proposed acronym, S.P.E.B. S.Q.S.A. The commission announced the startling results of their investigative nose-about at the annual Spring Conclave of Consolidated Figure-heads and Apprentices held at the Continuing Ed Center. The commission ' s figures revealed conclusively that there was no perceptible daily deviation of campus-wide class attendance; in other words, given a university of students in a setting with a broad range of weather conditions, i.e. Boone (torrential rain, golfer ' s sun, devil wind, etc.), class attendance remained constant. The graph looked thusly: lOO MONTHS OF THE YEAR the notable exception occurred Oct. 15 when coincidentally all the campus doors were marked " Do not enter. Use other door. " A faction of the committee, puzzled by the lack of deviation at a school known universally for its deviants, plunged suspiciously into the heart of the matter. Weather Monitors. S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A. probed the essence of campus gyrations and unearthed an intricate network of subversives dedicated to skipping class and sleeping late. The perpetrator of " team ditching, " Fudsy A.

During the first half of 1975, Appala- chian ' s Chancel- lor Herbert Wey took a six-month leave of absence to travel around the world on a Ford Foundation grant innovative practices i education. Dr. Wey spent the first nine weeks visiting thirty-seven universities in the continental U.S. and Hawaii and then began an accelerated tour of thirty-five foreign universities in Thailand, Iran, India, Holland, Sweden, Belgium, Scotland, the Phillipines and many other countries. Wey was invited to participate in the study on the basis of ASU ' s emphasis on higher education, continuing education, and work credit; however, he discovered that ASU is somewhat behind its foreign counterparts in independent study programs and internships. The Chancellor noted that Appalachian " ranks very well " with foreign institu- tions on the basis of teaching excellence, but that we are far behind in establishing an education system that allows any person of any age to resume his studies. While Wey was in Turkey, the students were striking against poor instruction, and he remarked with relief that we probably will not have that problem at ASU as long as the quality of classroom instruction remains as high as it is now. Dr. Wey brought back many anecdotes and preferences from his journey and is quick to launch into them. His decided preference among the nations he visited was for New Zealand, because the country is much like America must have been a hundred years ago. The Chancellor also greatly enjoyed Belgium, where he visited the open university institution pioneering in the field of credit work experience. In Bankok, Wey was a guest at the opening of a new business school and sat cross-legged for forty-five minutes while a group of Buddhist monks chanted ceremoniously. Much to his embarrassment, he was unable to rise at the end of the ritual and had to be helped up by the holy men. World travel, he commented, does have its disadvantages, for he was ill during part of the trip and lost nearly twenty pounds during his leave of absence. One school the Chancellor was especially interested in was a self- contained community with students and faculty members running most of the shops and services. This experiment demonstrated that ASU is not the only school that has to deal with the age-old " town-and-gown " problems. Despite the pleasures and benefits of travel. Chancellor Wey was glad to return to the mountains, ASU and home. He is presently planning to publish a magazine entitled " Alterna- tives to Learning, " a report on the alternatives to traditional classroom instruction available to Appalachian students. Each student will receive a copy of the magazine when it is completed and will learn more about the role that ASU ' s chief executive ' s journey will play in the life of our campus community. r 1 WErs GLOBETROT After A Summer School Of World Wide Education, The Chancellor Returns To Boone Somewhat Harrowed But Enriched With New Learning Alternatives 4 ACADEMICS TODAY. May 1976 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 5 Graduate school at Appalachian can be as easy or as difficult as the individual student wishes it to be. The university offers approximately thirty degrees, including Masters of Arts, Masters of Science and Specialists degrees, beyond the Bachelors level, and financial aid in the form of scholarships and teaching and research assistantships is available. One labor, common to all graduate students from English to chemistry, from educational media to French, is a course in bibliography and research, a course involving hundreds of hours in the library. By the end of the course, the survivors are usually familiar with the reserve section of the library, the periodicals and research technique and technical writing in their particular field. This discipline is the first major hurdle on each graduate obstacle course. It is no myth that graduate students must be more serious than they were as undergrads, for most of the courses require long hours of individual work, concentrated study that can be performed before the tv or in a crowded environment only by the truly gifted. Consequently, most grad students live off campus and have little involvement with campus affairs and politics. But there are substitute rewards; the graduate student finds himself accepted by some professors as practically a colleague and finds that a subtle bond (perhaps the camaraderie of the Dppressed) unites all the fellow-sufferers in ;ach department. Tests in grad school at ASU are few and far between, for most of the courses are evaluated an the basis of final examinations and papers of both the research and concept varieties. Because most of the classes are small seminars, the grad student must be prepared to discuss and contribute to the progress of the course on a day-to-day basis. Once he gets behind, he must go at a suicidal amphetamine pace to catch up and often fails to. Grades are 3. touchy subject in grad school, for a student who falls below a 3.0 (or a " B " average) goes an probation. Though most departments encourage the student t o take a wide variety of courses in order to gain a balanced knowledge of the field, the graduate situation offers the opportunity for a student to take independent studies in his special interest area. These independent courses occasionally result in publicatior of papers in academic journals. Here is a goal much more rewarding than the undergraduate ' s pat on the back from kin, a goal that many students sacrifice social life to attain. Many grad students are appointed teaching assistants in their department and find themselves planning lessons and grading papers in addition to their own course work. This activity adds a further tax on the time of the grad student, who must eventually become a species of intellectual juggler in order to survive. One ubiquitous pressure that hovers over every day in the life of a graduate student is the knowledge that he must pass a compre- hensive examination in his area before he can be rewarded his degree. In some departments the comp is a formality, the period at the end of a laborious sentence, but in other departments the comprehensives bring out the predator latent in those quiet academi- cians. In the English Department, for instance, the degree candidate must pass a foreign language competency, a two hour essay exam, a one-hundred-question objective exam, and a ninety minute oral exam administered by three of his major professors. It ' s all serious business and keeps more aspiring degree holders up all night than parties, sex or insomnia do. But is it worth all the blood, sweat and years? What does an individual with an advanced degree get out of it, other than personal satisfaction, myopia and a penchant for withdrawal? A Masters degree further qualifies its holder for many of the same jobs that he could have performed with a B,A. or B.S., but he must be paid higher wages, thus causing many employers to prefer the less qualified holders of undergraduate degrees. An Appalachian graduate degree can serve as a stepping stone for a doctorate, but the ambitious scholar must have impressive scores on standardized tests, as well as an A- or better average, before he can begin to think about a doctorate at a reputable institution. An undercurrent of anti-intellectualism seems to be forever sweeping this country, and one who prefers spending two additional years in college to finding a lucrative job is often considered suspect by his fellow citizens. There is a certain stigma attached to intellectual aspirations and involvements in a society which is moving away from articula- tion and toward code, away from art and toward diversion, and away from seriousness and toward a " laissez-faire " attitude about everything but tv and superstition. Yes, graduate work is worth the toil and frustration of late hours and blind alleys, but only if the student in prepared to become either a specialist in community colleges or, to romanticize, an outlaw in the mold of Bradbury ' s book people in Farenheit 451.

" crackles through the crisp morning air as Dr. Frank ' Bird Man ' Randall administers a final exam. Dr. Sandra Glover introduces her students to the fantastic world of creepy-crawlies, while fungi fairly dance across the room during a dramatization by Dr. John Bond. Treacherous swamps and bogs threaten the student ' s very lives as Dr. Marie Hicks and Chairman Dr. Bill Carpenter lead us on in search of Anthoceros. Dr. Richard Henson bestows the Sacred Starfish upon a worthy biology student. Such activities are commonplace to those Appalachian State University students who major in biology. A biology major is used to the unusual. To student teach in the middle of a swamp in Okeefenokee, Georgia is no rude surprise to an Appalachian biology major. They have seen the smallest living organisms in Dr. Dewel ' s class in Electron Microscopy. They have felt the hair of the ' famed ' wooly worm. They have studied cultures in Dr. Montaldi ' s Bacteriology class. They have searched for algae for Dr. Mary Connell. They have studied animal physiology with Dr. William R. Hubbard and plant physiology with Dr. Frank Helseth. These activities prepare Appalachian ' s biology students for many careers. Students can prepare for careers in environmental studies with course work under Dr. Derrick. A Biology major may enter medicine or become a naturalist with the U.S. Park Service. Students preparing to teach biology are instructed by the capable Dr. ' s Green and Robinson. To insure that Appalachian Biology students are well-prepared they are given a great deal of first hand experience in the science of biology. Biology caravans to England, Alaska and Baja, California increase the student ' s knowledge of the world around him. The use of the electron microscope and the biology department ' s 10,000-plus species herbarium also allow the student to experience first hand the thrill of discovery. With a new green- house that is to be built this year, Appalachian students will have further opportunities to study our living world. -Debbie Ward 10 ACADEMICS TODAV, May 1976 CHEMISTRY This year the Chemistry Depart- ment has added general chemistry to its curriculum to help freshmen that have not had a very good background in high school chemistry. This should be a big help to most students. Even though Appalachian has had a Biochemistry course for many years it has only recently acquired a Biochemist, Dr. W. Haye, w ho is presently teaching the course. Biochemistry deals with the properties and metabolism of carbohy- drates, lipids, and proteins. A very active research project is being conducted with the guidance of Dr. Soeder. He and several undergraduate students are trying to find the chemical constituents in ferns and are making very good progress. Programs for a B.S. and a B.A. are offered by the Chemistry Department at Appalachian. The B.S. degree is designed for students that want to teach price of chemicals to soar. Even though the same amount of money is being allocated for the chemicals, materials are tight because the price of chemicals has more than doubled in recent years. So as far as progress in the laboratory and research, the Chemistry Department suffers along with many other university departments, due to lack of economical support. —Debbie Dorsey PHYSICS n 1883, Henry Augustus Rowland, in an address before the American Association for the Advancement of Science said, " American science is a thing of the future, and not of the present or past; and the proper course of one in my position is to consider what must be done to create a science of physics in the country, rather than to call telegrams, electric lights, and such conveniences by the name of science. " That science of physics has been created and is extremely active on the campus of I are needed at nuclear power plants and in hospitals using radioactive isotopes. Applied Physicists are heavily involved in developing and applying lasers for practical purposes. The expanding interest in ultrasonic sound technology has also increased the demand for Applied Physicists. Medical Physicists, who have Ph.D ' s, can earn between $20,000 and $60,000 a year working in some of the larger hospitals, and, contrary to the trend in other areas, Physics teachers are still in high demand. In addition, the Physics Department supports a great deal of supplies and equipment to accentuate the philosophy of the ASU Physics Department. It is much more useful and fun to experience things than to be told about them or to read about them. This equipment includes a well-equipped machine shop where much of the equipment used in the study of physics is made or repaired. The Physics Department also supports a good darkroom where astronomy students and For my final project in Chemistry 1001 I will now create a substance that will make grown men and women dance and sing — laugh and cry. Yes, when perfected, this liquid will cause people to drive for miles just to drink it! Hard to believe you say? You say nothing can be that powerful? HAH! high school chemistry. The B.A. enables a student to act as a chemist in many industries or complete his education in graduate school. Former Appalachian students hold jobs in government agencies, various industries and universities. No new equipment has been obtained for the Chemistry Department this year due to financial stress. Like everything else, inflation has caused the Appalachian State University. Students enrolled in courses in electricity and magnetism, mechanics(study of all kinds of motion), heat, light, sound and quantum physics are preparing for interesting careers as physicists. Those careers can be exceptionally rewarding to the physicist. Geophysicists are still high in demand with the intensification of the search for oil and other fuels. Radiation Safety Physicists other physics students can develop and print their own pictures. The students in Astronomy also use the present roof top observatory which is under the super- vision of the Physics Department. In addition, there will be a new observatory soon to house the newer 12-inch reflector telescope. There are also three computer terminals in the Physics Department. These terminals allow students to communicate directly with the computer center and to watch solutions appear on a graphical plotter, a cathode ray screen, or on a printed read-out. The faculty of the Physics Department is also involved in research, professional writings in physics, and participation in professional organizations. The Physics Department faculty has published six research articles and twelve pedagogical articles in national and International reference journals. The department has also sponsored two national organization meetings on the campus of Appalachian State University. -Don smith r J ACADEMICS TODAY, iVIay 1976 - ■ Geography Geography, from the Greek, means " writings about the earth. " A most deceptive etymology for, though the Geography Department does not exhibit its efforts in concerts, contests or parades, it is one of the more active and exciting departments in the university. The overall orientation of the students and faculty in geography is toward practical involvement with the environment. Undergraduates may pursue a major in either geography or planning as they attempt to master the theory and techniques in order to assess man ' s possibilities for the present and for his progeny as he interacts with the natural environ- ment. Undergraduate majors may concentrate in one of several areas, including locational analysis, teaching and rural-urban planning. Each of these areas is heavily interdisci- plinary. Graduate students (at present about fifteen) may specialize in applied geography or teaching, but both areas are research oriented. The geography major learns cartography, urban and rural Interaction and particular regional problems. One group of student geographers recently assisted the people of Valle Crucis in a study that led to a zoning policy that was conducive to be most efficient and GEO intelligeiht usage of rural land. Other students are involved in studying the suitability of land in Watauga County for septic tanks and potentia) for mad slides. The department has a wealth of facilities, including a Ford Foundation funded lab, equipmentyfor field studies, a huge map room, a departmental library, a photography lab, and study carrels for the grad students. Awareness, analysis, assessment and control are the primary watch- words in the Geography Department, and the professors, in addition to their attention to the teaching profession, are as practical oriented as they encourage their students to be. One professor worked with his class on a Land Use Survey Analysis and Planning Recommendations for Boone, which was published and financed by a grant from the town council. Dr. Nichols edited a report on Planning a Tourist-Recreation Region for the Age of Leisure, after he gathered a group of experts ' on an issue that is highly germaine to the area where ASU is located. Dr. Stillwell led a field trip of geography majors to the Rockies to study variations of land use from one area to another. And Dr. Ole Gade recently directed a conference on Planning Frontiers in Rural America. Despite its lack of flashiness and inaccurate mundane reputation that geography has among most students, the ASU Geography Department, chaired by Dr. Epperson, is one of the most practical and busy departments in the university. Geology What, exactly, is the earth composed of, and how does it behave? What are rhodochrosite and chryso- phase? What is the difference between an igneous substance and a metamor- phic one? How are fossils preserved and ' jwtia.t .d9 they tell us about the past?+T(J do6s sediment form? What is,,the ocean floor like? All these questions falbonder the auspices of the Geology Deparfment, where students in classrooms and faboteto ies probe the mysteries of minerals that compose the earth ' s crust under the direction of department chairman Dr. Fred Webb, Jr. and his colleagues. Both Bachelor or Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees are awarded by the department on the undergraduate level, and students may also earn earth science teaching certificates. The department ' s purpose is four-fold: to provide students with the opportunity to learn basic scientific principles, to demonstrate the interconnectedness of geology and modern civilization, to provide majors with a sound background requisite for productive work in their profession and graduate studies, and to provide earth science teaching majors with the opportunity to become competent earth science teachers. Many youngsters are rock-hound, collectors of various stones and gemstones, and they may further develop their understanding of this hobby into a productive career. The department has many unusual and beautiful minerals attractively displayed along its halls, and sponsors many field trips for the students. One approved geology summer field course is required for each major before he or, she may graduate. A recent paleon- tology field trip involved a fossil dig where the bones of what is believed to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex were unearthed. By the time the geology student graduates, he will be able to explain the genesis of landforms and to recognize various landforms through descriptive quantitative analyses, and he will be prepared to enter industry an advisory or research role. dllU FROM THE EARTH 12 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 ! .U A ENGLISH DEPARTMENT: Better Grades Still Key To Good Grammer The English Department at Appalachian is known for its equally difficult intramural football team and freshman composi- tion program, but it offers other, more essential experiences for the ASU student. The English Honors program offers talented students the opportunity to investigate liter ature from Donne to Faulkner in small seminar groups. Another undergraduate program that is having expanding impact is the Quintessential Works course, in which different members of the department lecture on one book they consider both powerful and basic to a student ' s knowledge of world literature. This program brings in occasional members from other departments, as well as guest lecturers from other schools, such as Warren Wilson College ' s Dr. Frank Hulme, who lectured on Thomas Wolfe. The English Department sponsors two highly respectable journals, The Cold Mountain Review, a magazine of poetry and criticism, and Appalachian Journal, a regional studies magazine edited by Jerry Williamson. The Appalachian Journal has recently published a special Cherokee issue and is involved in publishing four issues that contain a serialized and edited version of Dr. Cratis Williams ' dissertation on Appalachia in literature and the other arts. CMR, edited by R.T. Smith, has published poetry by faculty members and students, as well as by nationally known poets, such as Ann Deagon, Michael Mott, Charles Molesworth, Lyn Lifshin and Paul Ramsey. John Foster West, ASU writer-in-residence and author of Time Was, is also published in The Cold Mountain Review. The English Department confers a Master of Arts degree, as well as the BA, and John Trimpey (otherwise known as " The Dancing Bear " ) supervises the graduate students in their pursuit of scholarship and survival. The courses range from Chaucer to modern British literature, and the comprehensive examinations are administered in three parts and taken quite seriously. Although department chairman Lloyd Hilton always wanted to be a major league pitcher, the English Department is staffed with diverse scholars and talented teachers and exposes the Appalachian student to a diversity of cultural and philosophical stimuli. One unusual asset of the English Department is Rogers Whitener, an expert in Appalachian folklore and urbane world traveler. Under the direction of Whitener and others, the department takes interested students to England each summer for resi dent study of English literature. r 1 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 13 international Relations Improved Through Foreign Languages The ASU foreign language department consists of four French instructors, four Spanish instructors, one Latin instruc- tor and one German instructor. The faculty members are, however, versa- tile; most of them are multi-lingual. Dr. Powell, a French teacher, has taught Spanish in order to improve his own accent. Dr. Latour also teaches a course in mythology, as well as her beginning Latin courses, THE AENEID and Roman lyric poetry. The department has a new chair- person this year, since the venerable Dr. Prince retired last spring. This ne w blood is in the person of Dr. Judith Rothschild, whose ideas have already begun to take shape and to give the department a refreshing look. Dr. Rothschild, who teaches French and German courses, has shouldered the administrative responsibilities and is determined to re-vitalize the department. She has taught all over the country, most recently at Boston University. Among her reasons for coming to ASU, Dr. Rothschild cites the beauty of the area. On October 10th and 11th, the ASU foreign language department hosted the 25th annual meeting of the Mountain Interstate Foreign Language Conference. During those two days of meetings, lectures, discussions and social events. Dr. Powell was elected to the time-consuming position of President of the association. Dr. Patricia Eargle will accompany a group of French students to Paris this summer for a four-week period of study at the Sorbonne and one week of study of the city. The department will offer intro- ductory and intermediate classes in French and Spanish this coming summer. From their eyrie on the fifth floor of Sanford Hall, the various members of the foreign language department, perhaps the least typical department in the university, attempt to convert the Southern American accents of ASU students to something resembling continental accents. Their task isj Sisyphean. The department consists of Dr.] Rothschild, Dr. Jose Amaro, Dr. Ramon Diaz (a well-known author in! his own language). Dr. Carl BrodonJ Dr. Patricia Eargle, Dr. William Evans, Dr. Peggy J. Hartley, Dr. Kenneth A. Holsten, Dr. Helen Latour, Dr. Elton G. Powell, and several graduate assistants. F 1 14 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 15 HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF An Interview with With Dr. Marv Williamsen Dr. Williamsen has been at A.S.U. for the past three years teaching Chinese and Asian history. He was previously at the University of California at Berkeley. He lived in the Far East for four years, mainly in Taiwan, but also in Hong Kong, .Japan, and Southeast Asia. Marv is a major in the U.S. Army Reserve. He received his doctorate from Duke. His research interest at the present is political systems in Chinese armies. Marv particularly likes teaching here because of the natural setting in the Appalachian mountains (he started out as a forest ranger in 1956). He finds his job to be even more meaningful and important because most students he is involved with have had few opportunities to encounter Chinese and Asian people. Marv, how do you feel about working at A.S.U.? People make a working milieu either interesting and stimulating or boring and unpleasant. Besides students and department colleagues I have encountered several other people at A.S.U. who have been both stimulating and supportive. For example, my department chairman Roy Carroll has encouraged me to teach interdisciplinary courses at A.S.U. and at other schools with which A.S.U. is cooperating. Dean Jim Jackson has provided resources for summer institutes in Asian studies and supports an Asian studies newsletter which 1 edit. It reaches 1200 teachers and scholars in the southeastern United States. Dr. Richard Howe, Assistant to the Chancellor, has demonstrated his dedication to international education in a variety of supportive ways. It ' s people like these three that make working at A.S.U. meaningful. The total combination of interested administrators, professionally well-prepared colleagues, and students who are interested in Asia make my job interesting. What about teaching in A.S.U. classrooms? I particularly enjoyed my teaching experience in Watauga College, probably because of the spirit of participation in classroom learning that characterizes students there. Some of the students that I encounter at A.S.U. are as well prepared and as able as the best students I encountered at Duke and at Berkeley. It is also true that a much larger percentage of A.S.U. students have been educationally disadvantaged in their previous twelve years of formal schooling than was the case at those other two universities. In A.S.U. classrooms we are trying to bridge the distance between the small minority of very well prepared, high academic achievers, and a majority of students who have not been well prepared for collegiate scholarship. I am always impressed with the number of these persons that are able and willing to dig in, work hard, and expand their intellectual world in just a few years of intense experience. It ' s almost enough to permit an optimistic view of the future. Part of what I ' m trying to say is that in spite of minimally low salaries, antiquated classrooms, and the lowest instructional budget of all sixteen state supported universities in North Carolina, the students make A.S.U. a fun place to teach. There are enough well prepared students to be stimulating. And there are plenty of poorly prepared students who make me feel needed. Where do you think A.S.U. is headed? A.S.U. is changing from the small isolated school that it used to be to the complete university that it will eventually become. While this is happening both students and faculty are struggling together to make the institution what we want it to be. We are all trying to make the school serve the interests that we know to be important. It is remarkable that so many in a community of about ten thousand people are able to be a part of programs and projects that they believe in. Almost anyone can discover opportunities to be involved in something really important at A.S.U. It is also encouraging to notice that educational change at A.S.U. is producing higher academic standards — whereas standards are deteriorating at other schools all over the country. So. I think that the future holds nothing but improvement for A.S.U. things are getting better every year. } About the general atmosphere at A.S. compared to other campuses: I have seen A.S.U. make really significant advances in quality of faculty and students. I look forward to the time when a greater percentage of A.S.U. students think of themselves as capable of significant intellectual contributions to their own lives and that of others. I believe that about half of what we call intelligence has to do with self-image. A human being, as such, is an " intellectual. " I also look forward to the time when the University is a bit more self-; conscious about the distinction betwee complicity with the times and the deeperi prophetic function of education. 16 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES by Bart Austin If one were to stride slowly down the fourth floor halls of Sanford, many strange words of wisdom might be overheard. " F of X prime equals the derivative of two X plus five XY, " might creep out a half opened door marked 404 while a crossfire from 405 might state that a computer compiler translates a user ' s program language into machine language. If you expected to hear " Me llamo Pedro. Y tu, como te llamas, " you pressed the four rather than the five on the elevator control panel. Well, as long as you are here you might as well have a look around. If you are working on your General College requirements you might find yourself in Introducation to Mathematics 1010, developing an appreciation for mathematical concepts in such areas as set theory and elementary logic. If you have a strong background in Algebra and Trigonometry, course number 1020 might be enjoyed. A new degree program in Computer Science has been offered for the first time this year through the Math Department. Students in this degree program begin their courses of study with common applications of Fourtran Four and Cobol. By the end of the four year program students will have written their own compiler and should be ready for a job that pays around $10,000 or more. J iUAjm Far, far away (if you live on the girls ' side of campus) ... in a geometrically shaped building, there lies the domain of analyzed dreams and hypnotized students. A land dominated by right handed persons and left hemispheric thoughts; and doctors more concerned with schizoids than any cold one might have caught. This picture is odd, we must admit, but the strangest of all has not been discussed yet. The leader of this " funny farm " country is a woman, simple and pure; Dr. Crouch her name. Her court (and courters) are as distinguished and honored by the same. Ah yes . . . Psychology; the name even rings of foreign tastes and ideals. Of German, " Vats yer problem " and Freudian slips. Psychology, the ultimate study ... of brains, functions and responses behavior, patterns and recourses, and last but not least, the total combined — it studies the human, heart, soul and mind. Yet, let us look deeper in our " see-all " crystal ball. We will look closer and see who teaches this subject to all. Why, could it be possible over there in the corner? The couple PSYCHOLOGY by Joni Webb holding hands . . . are they married or something? Or that man with his office desk positioned so carefully . . . could it be strategic for watching the girls ' bathroom each day? Looking closer a man has one arm dropping, as if a bucket of sand were pulling it downward. And there, over there! Watch and see the professor torturing his students with Gestalt therapy. Another prof reading Playboy jokes to his class; finally resorting to baby films to finally get laughs. Another teacher is now coming into view, this one reputed to telling nothing new — no matter which course he is teaching to you. Students beware, we beg of you . . . unless you feel capable of working with monkey testers and Guinea pigs. They are a strange menagerie of persons, you understand, and we would not mislead you about this strange land. But in all fairness, we encourage your interests to try out a course and decide for yourself if you ' d rather be: a) a house b) a factory worker c) a truck driver d) a ballet dancer e) all of the above 18 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 . ' ' ' ' ' % - % m ' - -e-igi THE The political Science Department has many practically minded, involved citizens. The depart- ment ' s International Relations Association demonstrates the concern for the direction this world is headed. This association has frequent meetings with Sarah Trowbridge, the chairman. A number of times throughout the ear they go on trips to various universitites that have associations Df the same type. This year they have been to DuQuesne University, Georgetown University, and Princeton. At each university they set up model U. N. projects complete with mock security councils. They will take the oosition of a certain nation and jiscuss the policies and actions in the real U. N. Involvement in this association is an excellent way to meet people from all over the U. S. who are interested in politics. The DEPARTMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE by Leigh MacDougell National Political Science Honor Society, created in 1976, invites juniors with a 3.0 average or above to join. Another new happening in the department is the interdisciplinary studies for the international symposium which will bring political speakers to A.S.U.

Well, don ' t take our word for it. Here are several unsolicited testimonials, written by students like yourself, about just a few of the members of the fine faculty of the ASU Philosophy and Religion Department. These statements have been copied unedited and uncensored from the wall of the men ' s restroom on the third floor of Sanford Hall.

Richter Yes. These are just a few of the testimonials you can find on the bathroom wall. But the faculty doesn ' t stop with these four. There ' s poor kindly Frans van der Bogert who was held back In the first grade because he couldn ' t spell his name. And for those of you who are tired of our western culture, O ' Hyun Park and Anis Ahmad will teach you about cultures that apparently would rather be western. And to top it all off Dean O.K.

The scope of this study is realized through several approaches, first from analysis of Homo sapiens as a socio-cultural being. The A.S.U. faculty represents research in such areas of the world as Yugoslavia, Africa, Mexico, the American Southwest, and the Appalachian region of the United States. In accordance with a recognition of the necessity for student awareness of vital issues in twentieth century western society, research seminars have been conducted in a variety of locales in the Watauga County area. Inter- disciplinary investigations of the present status and role of women have been conducted at the well- known Library Institute of Blowing Rock. Seminars including investigation of drinking rites have been conducted at the House of Holly and have branched out to include the aforementioned Library Institute. Explorations of the basic question: " Is aggression intrinsic to human society? " have been negatively affirmed through research on western " symbolic warfare. " Seminars included analysis of " baseball magic, " culminated in the famous Isenhower picnic, and of volleyball ritual at the Animal farm, culminated in a seminar conducted by the High Sheriff on the role of penal institutions in county political organization. Of particular interest to the research minded student has been the role of gossip in small group interaction in the elaboration and magnification of events. The department of anthropology at A.S.U. takes pride in the expertise and possibilities for practical experience offered in archaeology. Course work in the classroom is augmented by a summer field school conducted in Watauga County through which the student gains practical experience and expertise in the scope and method of investigation of early American societies. What may begin with analysis of archaeology may end with analysis of sexually dimorphic anthropo- metry. That is, six in the pits may find their fitting end with three in the picture, and if overexuberance is the note of the day, the family jewels may be revealed to the world. A third approach to Homo sapiens explored at A.S.U. is that of H. sapiens as a biological being. Precisely what is included in the scope of this study is problematic, especially when it comes to the question of whether or not department chairpersons and university administrators should be included. The contemporary view is that such relative of H. sapiens. should be included along with car| batteries, electric toasters, anc cattle prods in the classification o( Homo technoautomation. In summary, anthropology is al serious study of Homo sapiens, and ' the student looking simply for amusement and entertainment must look elsewhere. The faculty finds little to laugh at within its confines, and in fact finds most of its humor by looking next door at sociology. SOCIOLOGY z ' -; W E . 4 ,1- ls V The Department of Sociology, lA ith Alfred M. Denton, Jr. at the helm, helps the student understand how the mature individual participates in society. Diversive courses encompassing different situations are utilized: Delinquency, Collective Behavior, Propaganda, Ethnic Relations. A popular and practical first year Course is Marriage Family Relations. This course analyzes marital relations and sex roles in frank open discussions. Aspiring teachers at A.S.U. will find courses in Sociology a valuable guide in the classroom situation.

The Business Department, always alert to change, quickly established the College of Business as of Fall Quarter 1971 . At the end of the 1971-1972 school year, the College of Business graduated 243 business nnajors and by 1975 the number of graduating business majors had grown to 370 degrees. II BUSINESS At the present time, 23% of all undergraduates entering ASU are business majors and with the rate of growth that the College of Business is now experiencing, the undergraduate enrollment in Business should reach 2,000 undergraduates, 200 on-campus students in the Masters program and at least 80 candidates in the off-campus Masters program within three years. Indicative of this expected growth is the knowledge that in the four years that the College of Business has been founded, it has grown to have the largest undergraduate enrollment of any College of Business in the state. Contrary to the usual results of such growth, the Appalachian State University College of Business has not only maintained high standards, but has actually improved the standards for each of the college ' s four departments. For example, the Department of Accounting and Finance has a higher percentage of accounting professors with doctorate (63%) and CPA ' s (75%) than other accounting departments In the state. The Department of Accounting prepares students for careers in corporate, governmental or public accounting and the fact that all of the big eight accounting firms recruit on the campus speaks well for the reputation of the accounting department. The Department of Banking and Finance is also recognized as a valuable part of the College of Business. Every year, the Department of Banking and Finance places graduates in professional positions in banks, savings and loans and in governmental agencies. Furthermore, the Department of Banking and Finance, in conjunction with the College of Business and the North Carolina Savings and Loan League has sponsored the Savings and Loan Academy, a non-credit course for professional men. Over 250 graduates have passed this course of study which includes instruction from ASU faculty, leading professional men and representa- tives from government regulatory agencies. In recognition of this contribution, the North Carolina Savings and Loan League has given the College of Business a $200,000 endowment to sponsor a chair in Savings and Loans at ASU. In addition, a Banking Chair has been endowed by the North Carolina National Bank and The Bank of N orth Carolina. The Department of Business Education and Office Administra- tion, the root from which the College of Business was formed, has been operating for many years. 1100 1000 Number of Students gpQ Graduatmg from the «-, College BOO of Business 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 g asss V ■ . ■ • .■ . ■ . ■ .• . ;i l HV .i ft ' m ■-■ » " - ' - ' ' ' - ' ' ' - ' ' - ' ' - ■ ' ' ' • ' - " ' ' ■ ' - - ' ■ ■ ' ' mr .Z T ' ' i m ii ' ' ■■i l ' jV a ' . i immt S: I If J , MA ■ ' iiVw.liJjL lj i. rlllljl ' ' -- - - ' « ' - ' • ' - ' ' ' ' ■ ' ■ ' ' ' ! tf j[;;i.;, ' Vj. it ffcfc ' 72 73 74 75 78 77 78 79 ' 80 BUSINESS Many of the business courses taught in North Carolina high schools are instructed by graduates of this department. This department also graduates many highly qualified executive secretaries and office administra- tors. The fourth department in the College of Business and certainly the largest is the Department of Business Administration. This department Includes those students with concentrations in management, marketing, real estate and insurance, as well as individually designed majors for those persons seeking a more specific background. With an undergraduate degree in any of the above-mentioned departments, a person need not transfer to another school to add a graduate degree. The College of Business also offers a Masters of Arts in Economics and Business degree which is designed to allow a concentration in one of four areas. There is a business related degree with a specialization in business administration which is the equivalent of a Master of Arts in Business Administration degree. There is also a concentration in accounting and finance, and economics. For those interested in a teaching situation in high schools or a junior community college, there is also a specialization in i r m -w ' ' - - ' P llJQ IIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER .L DEBTS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE 37499C F5U9371 V. SHi ( ro BUSINESS teaching. To further enlarge the opportunities on the graduate level, the College of Business has instituted a field-based Masters degree program. This program is to allow students and professional men in the Winston-Salem area the opportunity to obtain a graduate degree by attending a course of study two nights a week for 2V2 years. In the first session, due to begin in August 1976, 65 persons have applied of which 40 will be selected to participate. The College of Business is also aware of the weakness of formal education with its abundance of theory and its scarcity of practicum. To circumvent this weakness, the Appalachian State University College of Business has adopted two programs to close the 32 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 gap between theory and practical applications. The first of these programs, the Internship-ln- Industry, places students, usually in their junior year, in internships with business or industry to assist the student in formulating his career plans and to allow the student the experience of a learn- by-doing situation. Students who successfully complete this program receive both academic credit and renumeratlon from the participat- ing firm. The Executive-ln-Residence program adds a new dimension to the formal study of business by allowing businessmen with varied experiences and backgrounds to act as full-time faculty members for a semester. This enables the business student to gain valuable insight into the real world of business. The College of Business has been fortunate to have had such notables as David J. Brunn, President, Drexel Furniture Company; Lt. General Joseph Heiser, former Commanding General, 1st Logistics Command U.S. Army; Jim Nelson, Director of Corporate Relations, McDonnel Douglas Corporation; and Phillip Manck, Senior Vice-President Federal Home Loan Bank, to participate in this program. This is not to imply that the professors in the College of Business are lacking in experience for the business faculty is endowed with multiplicities of talent in many areas. Most students aren ' t really aware of the many activities that are undertaken by our faculty Research, curricula development, consultation with business and professional men, program appearances and professiona writing are just some of the activities that occupy a professor ' s time after he leaves the classroom Nor should the physical side of 1 1 y -f«l the College of Business be neglected. Though presently located in Smith-Wright Hall, the College of Business is awaiting completion of the new College of Business Building. This new building is funded by the state with a proposed cost of 2 million dollars. The new three story building houses several lecture and seminar rooms, a business machines room, and individual instruction laboratory, a dictation laboratory, a merchandising room, a computer terminal, 18 classrooms and 72 offices for professors, assistants and the dean. The College of Business is also interested in assisting in the placement of graduating students. Dr. Melvin R. Roy is developing a program called the " Computerized Student Placement Program " which will allow data to be compiled about each senior or graduate business student wishing to participate. This data can be rapidly sorted and selected to allow businesses who are looking for students with certain criteria to determine who those students are. Compiled data on students can also be forwarded to firms who have openings. Thus, the College of Business can assist the student in finding his or her place in the professional world. r 1 TS WUi-i r lG-STORAGE SECTION. 39 77 77 77 ROUMD-COU ' JT AGE-SUM PEOPLE-COUNT T IC PIC PIC 99 VALUE C. 9999 VALUE 0. 99 VALUE 0. 77 77 77 LOOT QUE ' 20 i IC PIC 999999V99 VALUE 0. 9 VALUE 0. 99 VALUE 0.

" We tried to blend the public schools with the community so the facilities could be used after hours, " Dr. Alvin Hooks of the department noted. The department offers a masters degree for school administration with a concentration in community education. The program trains people to be community school directors. These directors In turn survey the community to find out what courses the people want and need. They set up the courses and hire instructors to conduct the classes. The classes may range anywhere from poodle clipping and cake decorating to typing and auto mechanics. The department has plans to employ a qualified person to create interest in community education and to organize school systems. The department also offers an educational specialist program for working people who want to go back to school to pursue higher degrees. Some of those programs already in operation include one In law, one in finance, and one in school leadership. This program Is now operating in Winston-Salem, Gastonia, Rutherfordton, and Lincolnton, North Carolina.

The department coordinates the educational research course for the College of Education and makes the areas of occupational outlook, marital counseling and enrichment, human sexuality, and psychological and educational testing their particular providence. Under the aegis of Fred T. Badders, Department Chairman, the department provides instructional programs in counselor education that lead to a Master of Arts degree in one of four different areas: certified school counselor, student development specialist, agency counselor, and more recently, school psychologist. Headed by Jack Mulgrew of the department, the Counseling and Psychological Services Center, located under East Dorm, provides assistance and guidance to the A.S.U. student body. A regular event on the calendar of the department is the fall semester department retreat frequently to the Valle Crucis mission. At this function, primary consideration is given to faculty and student communication and development in an informal setting. The latest techniques in guidance and counseling are demonstrated by professionals to participating retreaters. Role playing, dance therapy, small group interaction, the psycho- drama, and hypnosis are typical subjects of demonstration. The Counselor Education and Research Department is ably staffed by Drs.

This fact may account for Appalachian ' s placing a higher percentage of its teachers in jobs within North Carolina than any other college in the state. Appalachian ' s prospective teachers climb a career ladder of practicums. Internships are required of both sophomore and junior majors. The site for an internship may be areas such as Winston-Salem, Wilkes County, Catawba or Watauga County. The interns are given increasing responsibilities as they gain more experience. The culmination of all these practicums is student teaching during the senior year. Student teachers are placed in school systems in many areas of North Carolina; however, a few adventurous ASU students have taught in England and Scotland. ■ The Department of Elementary Education prepares its students well for their practical experiences. Twelve full-time professors, seven of whom hold doctorate degrees, devote their time to teaching the most modern methods in education. One of the most prominent methods is individual- ized instruction to meet the specific needs of each child. These needs Students Learn to 42 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 ire diagnosed through formal and nfornnal testing and directed ibservation. In addition to the fulltime staff, here are several joint appoint- nents to the department. These )rofessors are charged with eaching methods in specific lubject areas. Some of these nclude Edgar Greene in Biology- Science, Ruby Lanier in N.C. History, Jim Deni in Psychology, ind Frances Fulmar in mathe- matics. Although elementary teachers are predominately female, males are much in demand as they provide a balance in the classroom and may compensate for the male figure that is absent in so many broken homes. Even ASU has its share of males in the field, and one, Eric Charling, has found a great deal of success as a graduate assistant in the ASU Kindergarten. Practicums in addition to regular course work prepare the students for the final step, that of finding a teaching position. Ninety-five percent of ASU ' s elementary education graduates were placed in 1974 with 90% being placed in 1975. Of course, many graduates choose to further their educations before assuming a teaching position. r 1 Marilyn Furr Teach the Young Which department on the cam- pus of Appalachian State University has a " Teddy Bear " hamster named Van Gogh? Where on the campus can you find creative bulletin boards that can range from the art styles of the neo-classicist David to the style of the impres- sionistic Monet?

Such is the case for the Department of Reading, for they have a big and busy job andi, they are growing. Ill Since its creation as a depart- ment in 1974, the Department of Reading has strived to educate teachers in reading education on the undergraduate level. Require- ments for the masters degree in reading may also be met. The program leads to graduate certifi- cation in reading in North Carolina from kindergarten through grade twelve and permits the individual to teach in the area of his undergraduate major. Through individual planning, certification requirements in other states can be met. Under the capable guidance of Mr. Uberto Price, the department Chairman, the six full-time faculty members in the Department of Reading are placing 20 to 25 well-trained graduates a year in school systems from New York to Florida. The graduates have not only been exposed to courses aimed at the regular classroom teacher, but to courses that train the teachers of learning disabled students, the remedial teacher, the clinician, and or courses aimed at preparing administrator supervisors. In addition to preparing teachers on the campus of ASU, the faculty in the Department of Reading teach field-based extension courses all over the state. The Department of Reading also sponsors an annual symposium in October that draws four to five hundred classroom teachers and reading specialists from all over the Southeast. With all the success the depart- ment of Reading has had with their present programs, the department isn ' t resting on its laurels. In addition to their present graduate program, an undergraduate major in Reading is in the works, and the day will soon come when the department may have a Specialist Degree. So, if you want my advice, and your future is undecided, then " Take a ride to the Reading... Department that is. " You may find that they have the training that you ' ve only read about before. ri 44 ACADEMICS TODAY, Mav 1976 EDUCATED DRIVERS ON THE ROAD The Center for Safety and Driver Education is located in the stone building next to Chapel Wilson Hall. You ' ve probably seen or heard the squealing of tires as students practice their skills in the parking lot below. Most of the classes involve teacher preparation for driver ' s safety and education. Up until 1971, teachers were required to have one class; now each teacher must take a number of classes and be tested on his competence in the field. A mobile lab is driven all over the state by Bill Preston and Jim Lipe to refresh teachers, or to give extension classes. An adult driver ' s education program is offered for foreign students who haven ' t had a similar program. Two interesting classes that are offered include the EMT (Emergency Medical Training) in which the student learns patient care, and the EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operations Course) in which one becomes certified to drive all emergency vehicles. If you ' ve seen motorcycles riding around the parking lot, it ' s not the Hells Angels taking over, but a motorcycle safety class. This is a much needed class taking into consideration the motorcycle accident rate. Dr. Charles McDaniel has been the director since 1971. Dr. Harry McDonald and Ed Browning are instructors. f 1 M. t APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITY ' S DEPARTMENT OF SECONDARY EDUCATION OFFERS UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE COURSES LEADING TO CERTIFICATION IN THE VARIOUS FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS. SECONDARY EDUCATION by Ron Poor The Department of Secondary Education offers students instruction in the field of professional education. Both graduate and undergraduate level courses are available in various areas. In addition to the basics for teacher certification students receive instruction concerning curriculum development, educational materials, methods, research, professional organiza- tions and ethics. Problems within the American educational system are analyzed and discussed along with the past and future of education in this country. From the one room school to current theory, students are presented the broad spectrum of American education. Knowledge of subject alone does not prepare an individual to become a teacher. The Department of Secondary Education instructs prospective teachers in the art of teaching in the secondary school. Appalachian was in earlier years a teachers college. Though the instruction has grown far broader in 1976, the function of teacher education is as active as ever. The task of the high school teacher is far more than that of a lecturer. In ASU ' s Department of Secondary Education students are prepared to cope with the varied facets of the high school teaching situation. The noun student teacher usually brings to mind an individual receiving on the job training. However in the Department of Secondary Education an individual in the role of the student is nonetheless a student teacher. rj 46 ACADEMICS TODAY. May 1976 The Department of Special Education of Appalachian State Jniversity is just that , a very pecial department, filled with pecial people all working together or a special purpose. The lepartment revolves around the ledicated faculty and students orking together for a common |oal — helping special children ind a place in life in which they can unction best and be happiest, ' hese are physically handicapped hildren, gifted children, emotion- illy disturbed children and nentally retarded children. Each member in the Department f Special Education contributes to he common goal in his or her own ndividuai way. Each have poured heir own talents into the melting lOt and as a result, Appalachian las one of the greatest Special Ed. lepartments in the country. It is uided by the department hairperson. Dr. Linda Blanton. )r. Blanton, a very remarkable ady, arrived at A.S.U. in eptember, went right to work and oon became not only a friend to all he students, but also a great eacher. To add to her responsibili- ies. Dr. Blanton had a new son hree months after she began work, ;ut this hardly slowed her down, he is known and loved for her ndless patience in helping tudents as well as teachers with arious problems and difficulties. In the area of mental retardation by Ellen Tart HELPING SPECIAL PEOPLE WITH THEIR SPECIAL PROBLEMS is Dr. Ernie Lange, who works closely with the students in the Student Council of Exceptional Children. Others who have been a great help to the Council are Mike Ortiz and Carolyn Worley. Filled with students who are eager to help the handicapped, the SCEC has done much and is still going strong. They do everything from taking kids to the circus, to going to conventions to learn about new ideas in the field. One program which is very beneficial to both the students and the children is the Physical Education program held each Saturday morning in the gym. This program is headed by Dempsey Hensley, a man with a big heart and much care for the handicapped. In the area of Emotional Disturbance are Dr. Art Robarge and Dr. Jim Tompkins. Both men are exceptional in their field and are able to bring in good exper- iences that their past has afforded. This makes learning much more than just " from the books. " Dr. Richard Stahl, in the area of Gifted Talented is indeed talented. This area has just begun within the department, and Dr. Stahl has worked hard to make it into the unique program that it is. Many children throughout the country are benefitting from his efforts. He not only provides a good education for future teachers, but also has a program for gifted children. The Department of Special Education at Appalachian gives its students an opportunity to work firsthand with the handicapped before they graduate. This is one element that puts the department a step ahead of all others. People responsible for on-the-job training are Jim Hosch, Ray Hyer, and Larry Larson at Western Carolina Center. These three men are doing an excellent job being " fathers " to students who are doing their internships. Others responsible for on-the-job training are Mike Ortiz and Ricky Connellee. Mike works with student teachers in Lenoir and Winston. Ricky works with student teachers in Charlotte. Their extreme interest and zest helps students in becoming true professionals. A new addition in the depart- ment is Gary Timbers, and last but certainly not least are the secretaries, Kathy Kline and Kalyn Storie. These are by no means just ordinary secretaries. They ' re known to help in every way from giving baby showers to taking notes in faculty meetings. They listen to problems on the sides of both the teachers and students. Indeed, the Department of Special Education is one of a kind. It is a great and true example of what can be done when teachers and students respect each other and work together toward a common goal. r 1 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 47 GET AT LEAST SEVEN GREAT DEPARTMENTS IN ONE COLLEGE!

WHITENER • If your idea of artists is one of " strange people shutting themselves in a dark room calling forth the creative spirits, " you may be right. Then again, there are those artists who create art out of anything and everything they see. Even a place such as the ASU campus can evoke the creative abilities of the art students. Even the persons who drew with crayons on the sidewalks of campus this fall were aware that art surrounds us. Most of us are oblivious to this fact; we need artists to point it out to us. The women ' s art show demonstrated how aware they are, for most of the subject material was objective. The Art Department this year, for the first time, offered a much- needed course on commercial design. This course gives many artists the opportunity to use their abilities out in the cold cruel world. " The Loft " is an incredible apartment for ASU artists to be able to see New York artists in the making. For the unbelievable price of $40, students can be driven to and from New York and be given lodging for five nights. The Loft was begun in the Art Department, and is now available to any student group at ASU. There is an infinite amount of cultural and educational material in New York City, which The Loft has opened up to people who otherwise could not afford it. Speaking of opportunities, the Art Department has become part of a new organization, the National Art Educational Association, which offers art classes of all types to children. This year there has been a lot c room for publicity; such as Di Lorraine Force ' s winning secon place in the N.C. Museum of Arl and Judy Humphrey ' s winning th purchase award. Also, fal semester, the Art Department wa proud to have David ItchkawicI (one of the best printers in thi nation) as artist in residence. Thi most prestigious event of the yea was the National Drawinc Competition, held on February 22 John Caraday, an art critic from thf New York Times, was the judge fo the drawings by students from a! over the nation. By far, the event that got th« most publicity for the Art Depart- 50 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 ent ' s Bill Dunlap was the feature tide in the February issue of quire. The cover picture was a ask of James Dickey, done by Bill jnlap when Dickey visited last iring. The mask itself wasn ' t the key to the publicity. Rather, a mishap that occurred in the molding of the mask inspired Dickey for part of his new book. The Art Department has managed to pour out creativity from a small building. The much- needed new art building will be completed in the fall of 76, but who knows what will happen in art when adequate facilities are available? rT ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 51 HEALTH The Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation has been very busy this year. In addition to hosting the annual convention for the North Carolina Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation, the department has instituted a presently-successful recreation major a very innovative and unique off-campus Health Education Program and an unusual facility called the Laboratory for human Performance. The division of Driver Education and Traffic Safety has just completed the first phase in a grant-sponsored Emergency Medical Training program. In addition to the year-old recreation major, several courses were added. These included courses in outdoorsmanship, self-defense, table tennis and billiards, conditioning, adult fitness, european team handball, selected recreational activities, consumer health education and public, private and commercial aquatics. A concentration in dance I also been instituted, as well as a recently-approved dance minor. The North Carolina Association for Health, Physical Educati and Recreation Annual Convention was a great success and over 800 members (more than has ever attended the state conference in organization ' s history) atte nded. Mr. Roger Thomas, a professor m the department and past-president of the organization, served as the convention manager. Several faculty members gave speeches and many departmental majors assisted in co-ordinating the event. The recreation major is in its second year and has attracted over fifty juniors and seniors already. Surprisingly, the majority of the courses required for the major are taken in other departments. Internships are required for both juniors and seniors. The unusual off-campus Health Education Program was initiated this fall. The program administers a specially-designed program of health education to area registered nurses in order that they may earn Bachelor of Science degrees in Health Education. The program requires the nurses to attend two night classes a week for three and a half years. The department says that it ' s the only program of its kind in the state, and it may well be the only one in the country. 1 PHYSICAL 1 Dr. Vaughn Christian directs the Laboratory for Human Development. With the change to the semester system requiring a revision in curriculum from the departments, programs were restructured to allow for more efficient use of the facility. Physical Education majors now have several opFwrtunities to be involved in the actual demonstrations and testing of the laboratory. The new program for Emergency Medical Technicians was funded through a grant from the state. They purchased and developed vans to transport students in the program to remote areas of the state to allow a more individualized instructional format. Results during the first six months of the system ' s implementation show that the individuals enrolled are completing their requirements in less time than with previous methods. Traditional courses are taught in the more heavily-populated urban areas, and the students from those programs are not scoring as high on the state examinations as are the students in the new program. The grant has recently been extended to adapt the program for use in community colleges and to allow furthur improvements in the newly-implemented procedure. Wendy Behrendt was hired this year to originate the dance minor and the concentration in dance and awaiting approval from the Board of Governors, a major in the same field. She is currently teaching dance and is the first teacher employed for this, aside form artists-in-residence. The Lady Apps volleyball team hosted an invitational met including 16 teams from around the state. The ASU Invitational Volleyball Tournament was somewhat of a disappointment, since the Apps didn ' t win Duke did. In the semi-finals, the Blue Devils out-playeo the Apps and went on to narrowly defeat Wake Forest for the championship. In early October, eight P.E. majors from ASU attended the North Carolina Student Major Convention, this year at Gardner-Webb. The students put on a display of team handball and one on water basketball, as well as attending several other similar demonstrations from other schools. AND EDUCATION Department of Home Economics The Home Economics Depart- ment has long had the reputation of training housewives. If this ever was true, it certainly is no more. This year, an armed forces retiree is taking a course in Meal Manage- ment to better prepare his family ' s meals and to become a more efficient shopper — something everyone can use. Part of the reason for this revolution in the approach to teaching home economics is our changing world. Department Chairperson Josephine Foster says they have come a long way in tempering the programs offered to students ' needs. Today, four options are offered students majoring in the department. These are Home Economics Education, Institutional Education, Food and Equipment and Clothing and Textiles. Speakers from fields related to those students will be employed in, frequent the campus and the classes often visit locations similar to the ones they will someday work at. The quality of education in the department is shown by the fact that it is one of only three in the state accredited by the American Home Economics Association. The department ' s enrollment figures are astonishing, also. This year, 108 students entered the program —an increase of 100 per cent. Student involvement is stressed as evidenced by the fact that students are represented on every board and committee in the department except the faculty appointing board. From this beginning, Foster hopes to get the students more interested in the college as well as on local, state and national levels. This is one of the major goals of the department - to train students to be successful citizens when they graduate. An interesting, and somewhat unique, facet of the education program is the Home Management Residence. This is the large white house located across from Sanford and between the Faculty Apart- ments and the women ' s dorms. Home Economics Education and Foods and Equipment majors are required to spend half a semester in the house to gain practical experience. The participants share rooms and take care of the house as if it were their own. Grants are constantly awarded to the department for research. One of their projects, which will be published upon its completion, is a study of microwave ovens versus conventional ones. The study will compare the average costs for operation, benefits of each method, preparation times and utensil costs, as well as the less practical aspects of taste and appearance of each. The many varied opportunities open to the Home Economics major and the constantly growing number of available jobs (Figures call for an additional 70,000-80,000 dieticians by 1980) have made this one of the most universally-appealing and increasingly-beneficial programs available at ASU. rj 54 ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 There is a department on cam- pus that trains students for jobs in all walks of life. These students develop qualities like self disci- pline, physical stamina, and moti- vation which give them leadership abilities. The learning experience to be acquired in this department is good for any background, but particularly that of management. I am speaking of the Military Science Department, or the ROTC program which trains students to be officers In the army, or to be part of the civilian army. If I didn ' t attract your attention earlier, you may be interested to know that being a member of the civilian army, brings in two or three thousand dollars a year. Some of you may change your opinions of the students in uniform! There are 163 ' students in uniform ' at Appalachian this year, 42 of whom are females. The fact that one-fourth of the ROTC stu- dents are females demonstrates the growing interest in careers for women. The cadets here get experience in teaching activities like rappeling. In a reversal of situation, they taught a company from the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg rappeling at Hound Ears. Students are used as assis- tant instructors teaching ROTC at Lees McCrae. Cadets have the opportunity to get fit through two new organizations: Run-for-your- life, and Swim-for-your-life. The military science department has reason to be proud of their rifle team. In September they were named the number one ROTC rifle team in the nation, against 292 other teams. Keep your eyes open for the ROTC students. With their leadership capabilities and self discipline, they ' ll be going places. ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 55 There is a certain joy, rather, a self- satisfaction that comes fronn working with the hands. The philosophy of the Industrial Arts Departnnent revolves around working and progressing in that work. Consequently, I. A. classes require long hours of lab work. Some industrial arts majors, rumor has It, have organized a communal set up in the building in their efforts to com- plete course work. The I. A. department is alive and well and thriving on Faculty Street; this fall, three hundred students were left behind knocking on the entrance door. Obviously, too many chiefs and not enough tepees. There are a variety of reasons this department is in the vogue. For openers, the I. A. depart- ment has a large ratio of women to men. Add to that course offerings in leathercraft, jewelry and ceramics, drafting, metalwork, graphics, elec- tronics and woodworking and you can understand the great attraction. But a major in I. A. is no Cakewalk. The entire curriculum requires mental discipline as the I. A. student develops an idea and carries it through the necessary research, planning, design- ing, modifying, evaluation, communi- cating, managing, layout, cutting, shaping, assembling, testing and reevaluation phases. In industrial arts, a high s.q. (skill quotient) or the ability to transfer concepts to new products and new manufacturing situations is a must. ri ACADEMICS TODAY.

" Lord knows he music program has as much jpportunity for funny things to lappen as anything could, because )f the very nature of what people ire doing; playing instruments that are subject to human failure, or singing— your voice is subject to failure if you ' re singing. " Although sometimes peoole are a little light-hearted in the depart- ment, there is work to be done and the students are really put to the test. Appalachian has turned out some excellent performers and the department has a reputation for being second to none. " We have quite a few faculty members who are very fine performers. Any number of our members have experience in symphonies. " Carroll explains the goals of the department as paralleling those of the individual student. They have designed majors in Music Mer- chandising, Music Technology, Music Education-Instrumental, Music Education-Vocal, Church Music and an individually-oriented program in performance for stu- dents who just want to be profes- sional musicians. The graduate level options offered by the depart- ment are in Music Education and in Junior College-level teaching. The department offers a wide variety of performing groups for students to gain experience. For vocalists, there is the University Singers-a select group requiring auditions; the Chamber Singers-a small, more-select group also requiring auditions; the University Choral Society-open to townspeople, students and anyone else without an audition; the Opera Workshop; the Men ' s Glee Club and the Women ' s Glee Club. For the string player, the department offers the University Symphony; the University Cham- ber Ensemble; and various smaller groups such as string quartets and the like. B rass, woodwind and percussion players may choose from the Wind Ensemble-an audition group; two large jazz bands; several jazz improvisation and percussion ensembles; the Symphonic Band- growing out of the Marching Band after their season is over; and the Brass Choir. Several miscellaneous groups are also included-bluegrass bands, piano ensembles and others. These performing groups are not limited to music majors. Several excellent members are students in other departments, amateur musicians. The opportunities for personal expression are limited only by the individual ' s time and willingness- there is no limit to the originality and individuality produced when combining dedication, humor, enthusiasm, talent and hard work with the tremendous nun.ber of varied courses and performing groups in the Department of Music. ri ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 59 % . . y . The speech department has had a dilemma to face. Due to the inconsistency of Boone weather (and other variables), they still don ' t know if they ' ll be in their new building next year. For these extreme optimists, next fall will witness the move, but for the realistic optimists, next spring will be the date. In the meantime, classes must be scheduled in both places, even though the facilities in the new building will be much larger. There will be a learning laboratory with audio-visual devices that will afford the class- room more room. There will also be two TV studios for students to practice in. The speech department includes speech communication, theater, and broadcasting. In all these ' areas, the hands on approach is taken, with emphasis on laboratory and co-curricular work. The broad- casting area has recently devel- oped TV capabilities; the students IFFALA HIAN STATf V 5fFFCH... have Channel 6 for use in student programs, especially news pro- grams. The speech communica- tions area works with other depart- ments on campus trying to meet their communication needs. The major thrust in this area is to provide a proficiency program for teacher certification. For many students from small towns all around the state, there is a lot to be learned about the English langu- age. One can ' t teach speech until some of that Southern drawl has been eliminated. In the theater area, the hands on approach is apparent in the work of the children ' s theater. The readers theater has been active this year also. There are always numerous productions going on; as more and more people are going into theater. Productions directed by Linda Welden, Ed Pilkington and Susan Day have made the Speech Department valuable to the entire campus population. rj ACADEMICS TODAY, May 1976 61 WATAUGA COLLEGE A LIVING LEARNING RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE Watauga College is a residential, co-educational learning experience with a strong community atmosphere. It offers students the chance to share ideas and experiences outside the classroom as well as within. Watauga College was founded in the fall of 1972 as an experiment in bringing the academic and social lives of students closer together. It evolved in response to the expressed concern over Appalachian State ' s loss of community oriented life style due to its rapid growth. There was genuine concern that people were becoming numbers — that students and faculty might not be able to fraternize outside of the traditional classroom roles; that the curriculum had become so fragmented that a sense of the interrelationship of knowledge was being lost; and that the growth of a total individual was threatened. W.C. ' s curriculum is inter- disciplinary. Students and faculty members regularly meet for classes within the college in A NEW APPROACH TO EDUCATION " informal settings to emphasize independent approaches to learning and life, but with the structure most people need to achieve their educational goals. A course of studies in Watauga College is designed to challenge individual abilities and expand a student ' s capacity to solve problems and to communicate ideas and solutions. Learning doesn ' t just stop in the Watauga classroom. There is an active and varied program of social events planned each year that is considered a vital part of Watauga ' s total learning experience. One must live while learning; and Watauga students do a lot of living. A " Beer Bust " or dance is occasionally held for Watauga College people so that faculty and students can get together in a non-academic atmosphere. Watauga does not think of itself as a static program. It welcomes criticism and encourages students to take the initiative to implement new ideas and directions. No one is required to participate in this activity, but many who have ideas, do so. This is one good reason why Watauga does not wither away from apathy or fall victim to cynicism. r 1 THE INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION CENTER OPERATED BY THE LEARNING RESOURCES AND DEPARTMENT OF SPEECH AND BROADCASTING. wasutv May 1976 •$.50 Robert Bradshaw: Til do my best to sing this song... " A look at Our SCA Clubs and Organlzatlofls Student Publications Going To School Isn ' t Always Just Going To School To some of us, the privilege of higher education requires not only summer employment, but part-time employment during the school year as well. As a branch of the Office of Student Development, the Student Employment Service aids ASU students and their spouses in procuring regular or short-term jobs. Since its establishment in 1971, the program has expanded to include not only the academic year, but also the summer sessions and summer job opportunities for students in their home areas. All job opportunities are posted on a bulletin board in the Student Union. In contrast to its barren appearance during the ' 74- ' 75 unemployment crisis, the SES board has flourished with little white index cards this year. Over fifty students were employed through the program in September alone, with an increase in the following months. To those students in need of financial help, the SES has beco me not only an aspect of education, but the very means by which they can obtain an education.

Mystery Picture No. 5 In regard to Mystery Picture 5, I am in a position to disclose the essence of the shot because I was present when it was taken. (My hands appear at the edge of the photo right.) Number 30 is none other than Sonny Head, manager for the traveling chess team. In a daring boast Sonny announced that he would beat team captain Bruce Spassky with his eyes closed or eat his weight in s . Whereupon Bruce proceeded to make Sonny eat his words. B. Fischer Eureka, Calif. I would like to shed some light on Mystery Photo 5. This event occurred outside the B.I. Fall semester 1975-76. The unfortunate fellow in the photo has been captured for posterity in the mid-convulsion shortly after he finished an unprecedented third B.I. burger. Fine photography. S. McGreedy Foscoe, N.C. The man in Mystery Photo 5 is an Appalachian soccer player ( 30 in your programs but 1 in your hearts).

WITH FACULTY: Dr. Mrs. John Bond many a fall afternoon in Boone at ssidence of 416 Grand Boulevard -John Bond, Bettie, can be found cooking some delicacy from her many Chinese recipes. John, her husband, might be found examining his garden under glass or doing research on one of the many different variety of mushrooms which grow in this area. Dr. and Mrs. John Bond spend what free time they have away from the university in a wide range of hobbies and interests. The Bonds have always been mountain people since both of them spent their undergraduate years in the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee. Bettie and John did undergraduate work at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. History, always one of Bettie ' s main interests since high school days was her degree and John focused on biology. Teaching, the aim of both the Bonds led them to continue their education in graduate school at the University of Kentucky and later at East Tennessee University. After moving a bit, marriage, and a few years in between, the couple ventured to North Carolina State University where Mrs. Bond received her Masters in History and LBond finished his PH.D. pjause of their mountain captivation, iiic ' feonds have fallen in love with the Western N.C. area and in particular, Boone. Residing in Boone for about five years now, John Bond has been teaching biology at ASU since they moved here. Mrs. Bond is a professor of freshman history. This professor team specializes in intriguing areas within their fields, ttie is an Asian enthusiast, therefore loves cooking Chinese food and hopes ■make it to India in the summer of ' 76 to further her Asian interest. John is a mushroom connoisseur and is well at home in this region where the widest variety of edible mushrooms flourish. Jamaica, Nassau, and Portugal are just a few of the overseas excursions the Bonds have made in their travels. And when the Bonds are not traveling they are busy keeping their animals and plants thriving and happy. Alex and Bessie, the two tremendous cats, and Harley, the collie, complete the Bond ' s household. Dr. Bond and Bettie, just one of the several husband and wife teaching teams here at ASU, are necessary for the growth and survival of the university community. ».si r . Robert Bradshaw has become a legend in his own time. He can always liven up a boring day by playing the " Walbash Cannonball " on his harmonica. He settles down on the wall outside of the student union and is frequently heard saying, " I ' ll play you a little tune and sing you a little song. " The small gray-haired man loves to talk, and he always has a ready listener. Students and teachers pick him up at his home and have been bringing him to Appalachian campus for two years. The eighty-three year old man was born and raised in Blowing Rock along with thirteen brothers and sisters. His father, a Baptist minister taught him to play and sing when he was twelve years old an d he has been playing ever since. When asked about his days in World War I he quickly changes the subject, merely saying that those were unhappy times. He then tells us that he has been a produce man for most of his life. Robert loves to talk about his wife and four children. He is exceptionally proud of his son who is an engineer for the government. With a twinkle in his eye Robert says that he wants to live to be a hundred years old. If loving life has anything to do with it, Robert Bradshaw will probably live long after that. 3. How long have you lived in the area, Robert? . Practically all my life, off and on. I got a amily. 3. You like Boone then? . Why shore. I remember when there weren ' t many sidewalks. Not many people. Real quiet. 3. What do you think about Boone ' s expansion in the last years? . Brings a lot more people round to hear Tie play. 3. Then you don ' t mind all the tourism and ;ommercialism that has taken over Boone ind the surrounding area? . No. I don ' t like the traffic so much, but I nostly likes the people. 3. People mean a great deal to you? . Why shore they do. I play for em and hey pay me a quarter or a dime if they got ime that day. Works out good. 3. How many people do you know, Robert? . I know lots. But not as many as knows Tie. They all know my name cause that ' s 3asy. I don ' t know much names. I go by faces mostly. 3. What kind of people do you like best, Robert? . Young ones. They have more time to stop. Q. Is It Important to you that people do stop to listen? A. That ' s what I ' m here for. To be with people and play my music. Pick up some quarters. Q.

Some people give em to me. People give me a lot of things. Q. Why do you suppose they do that? A. Cause I always play a song or sing a song just for em and they remember that. People remember when you do things like that for em. They ' predate it mostly. Q. Well I appreciate your time and your songs, Robert, and I will remember you for a good while. A. Thank you, thank you. « W9 ni do my best to sing this song 99 IN THE NEWS The Appalachian Even The Appalachian ' s critics admit that it is a much-improved newspaper over last year ' s version. The paper performs the valuable service of informing students of upcoming events, reporting local news and acquainting the student body with issues that concern the college community. Guest articles by professors like Dr. Davis of the Philosophy Department and Dr. Coulthard of the English Department have increased the sophistication of thought and style in a paper that operates with the disadvantage of not having a journalism curriculum to draw staff members from. Past volumes of The Appalachian have suffered because the editors were more involved with fraternities, student teaching or intranecine quarrels, but Bob McPhail ' s organization seems relatively free of these distractions. McPhail seems to be the first real administrator to fill the position in several years, and his ability to delegate authority has had visible effects. Though headlines are still occasionally bland, the readers of The Appalachian no longer have to consult a ouija board to discover which heads go with which articles. Copy Editor Alan Dehmer has eliminated a great percentage of the misspellings and dangling modifiers. though a few of each survive each proofreading session. Twice a week Bob Goans manages to dig up enough news to keep the ASU student interested and informed, and Sports Editor Jim Buice continues to improve his staff with quality writers like John Lattimore. If there is a writing star among the newspaper staffers, it is probably Debbie Furr, a sophomore who specializes in straight news reporting. In the past. The Appalachian ' s news stories have contained more tacit editorializing than its say-nothing editorials, but Ms. Furr has a keen eye for significant detail and is quite capable of presenting facts, a certain virtue in journalism. The editorial section of the paper, once an ignored bin of dusty opinions and syncophancy to the administration, has become a place where the reader may find a real opinion supported by facts linked through logic. This improvement is perhaps the single most important step for a newspaper toward major status. Yet, The Appalachian still has its difficulties. " The President ' s Report, " a regular feature written by Mike Broome, is regularly confusing and bombastic. The newspaper lacks any feature writing done with a real flair for the language and feel for people and events. Most importantly, the newspaper lacks a fanatic, an inconsolable reporter who refuses to accept surface appearances and who is involved in solid and crucial investigative reporting. However, The Appalachian is operating at a disadvantage. Though i many of the students who work for it are | paid, few are able to learn journalism from professional journalists. It provides ! a learning laboratory where the students themselves conduct the experiments, and j they are learning. , In the Lead The Student Government Association The Student Government Asso- ciation exists as tlie established voice and governing body of the students of ASU. SGA functions in policy-nnaking procedures, settling student grievances, and in discipli- nary nneasures. Each ASU student is, in effect, a member of the SGA. Students may mal e themselves heard by joining SGA committees, through informal conversations with SGA leaders, and by making their opinions known to their senators. The Student Government President should act as the official voice of every faction of the population. The President, Mike Broome, selects a cabinet to specialize in many areas of work, and he appoints (with consent of the Senate) students to the various committees. The Vice President, Dan Berger, is presiding officer of the Student Senate, where he tries to insure a student voice in all policy-making decisions. The Treasurer, Mike Hawkins, handles the funds and must be consulted about the expenditure of student fees. Also, he is assigned the duty of working with commu- nity merchants and with students on check-cashing problems in the community. The Secretary, Jane DeLance, keeps a record of all proceedings at Senate meetings and prepares a permanent preservation of Senate documents. In the Future...
