What attracted the first mountain settlers to this demanding terrain is a question yet to be answered. Bitter cold winters and rock-strewn farmland extracted its price in sweat, hardship, and death. Perhaps the relief of Spring, the mild Summer, or the glorious Autumn obliterated the memories of pain. Whatever the opiate, the first settlers endured and called these mountains home. Tomorrow, four-lane highways will bring more and more visitors to the mountains once isolated by their own difficult accessibility. Land development and real-estate profiteering continues with little or no regard for the natural beauty and simplicity of the region. As for the days when a man ' s only asset were his calloused hands: ' tis a time that will soon be no more. i " i i. " . jM m ' m r gil l ' Introduction Introduction 5 Introduction . . At What Price? Traffic snarls and an impossible parking situation have demanded the four-laning of Rivers Street and the creation of temporary parking facilities on and off campus. As enrollment reaches the anticipated ceihng of ten thousand students, construction must necessarily continue to ease the growing pains. Under the guidance of Dr. W.H. Plemmons, the building boom of the sixties was thoughtfully planned regarding the increasing needs of our institution. With further growth inevitable, it is our hope that the greatest care be taken in the preservation of the natural beauty of Watauga County. bitroduction 7 As a result of its incorporation by the state ' s university system in 1968 Appalachian State University has been assurred continued growth and improvement. This begins to fill its role as a major university, a wider ' array of educational and cultural opportunities will also be made available. Because of this, our institution is on the verge of becoming a complete educational and social experience. This year our Speech and Communications department has moved into its new facility, which houses a new radio station for WASU-FM whUe boasting a television studio. This New Arts and Speech building also contains studios for the many talented artists at ASU. In the realm of science, a large greenhouse is being constructed beside the Rankin building which will permit valuable first hand experimentation. The academic demands in the sciences are increasing and our departments intend to keep pace. Our College of Business, long recognized for excellence in the state, enters its second year in Johnny Walker Hall. With the assistance of such benefactors as Walker, a business degree from ASU should become one of the most respected majors in the South. As Appalachian State Teacher ' s College, the state ' s public schools looked to our institution for quality educators. Today, ASU continues in that tradition, as seventy-five percent of our grads remain in this state. Music majors at ASU, now enjoying the most diversified curriculum ever, can look forward to a new facility in the near future, so can our Industrial Arts majors. The campus infirmary, long deemed inadequate, will soon be replaced by a structure five times as large, replete with para-medical training facilities. Introduction W4f ' To supplement the materials of learning, our library must also be expanded. In the face of this expansion, stately Watauga dorm must be torn down. In its place, a fifty-thousand square foot library addition will be built. The academic quality of any university depends upon the resources of its library, but with the loss of Watauga dorm, we sacrifice a link with the past. Not only that, the dorm ' s residents must relocate in an already critical housing situation. Privately owned apartment houses are springing up Hke milk-weed, but more housing is needed. Plans for more dormitory space are in the offing, with millions of dollars awaiting expenditure, and officials expect results by the Fall of 1979. In our sports minded culture, a university ' s athletic program can do much to establish recognition and identity across the nation. At ASU, every athletic facility is being expanded. Conrad Stadium is being remodeled, with a new press box, field house and fifteen-thousand more seats. For the recreational athlete, Broome- Kirk Gym is renovating the showers and dressing rooms. More recreational facilities will be constructed in the future as the ASU student athlete continues to enjoy them. Even the oft maligned " Duck Pond " will benefit to the tune of a one hundred-fifty thousand dollar landscaping and drainage project. The increased traffic flow will be eased by the widening of Rivers Street to four lanes as the campus will begin to dominate the terrain of Boone. These, and the many other pervasive developments at our university will contribute to the development of well-rounded college graduates. It will bring the ASU grad the recognition and credibility required to stake a claim in whatever field of endeavor he or she chooses.

FLOOD! A stream of students swell the city of Boone each fall, bringing with them a vitality that enlivens this speedily growing region. A great debate now simmers regarding the positive or negative aspects of this annual migration. Nevertheless, student life continues, sometimes indifferent to the wants of the townsfolk. Millions of student dollars pour into the economy of Boone and Blowing Rock, and the effect upon the area ' s growth is obvious. Some townspeople understandably resent the change this growth has brought on, but Uke the swollen streams of spring, this flow cannot be stopped. Step right up!

Certainly romantic tails of Apre-Ski weekends have had something to do with the trend. Now it appears that ASU ' s academic allure is contributing. The result has not only been overcrowding, but due to increased competition for vacancies in enrollment, perhaps the brightest freshman class in our history. .« ' c ' OPPOSITE PAGE: Varsity Gym is the scene for registration as students race with quickly closing sections.

A summertime full of planning by president Hugh McCuUen and his cabinet was manifest during the first weekend back in Boone. The " Anti-suitcase " weekend was designed to provide attractive entertainment on campus, at little or no cost. Bonnie Raitt opened the action on Thursday night, and she rocked the Farthing crowd with her typically passionate concert. Monty Python came to ■ 1 iV . Ml 16 First Weekend the cinema Friday night, and Saturday was a day filled with relays, sack races, apple bobbing, seed spittin ' , and much more. The night brought " The Blue Ridge Ramblers, " pig calling, clogging, and a square dance. A Sunday afternoon concert on the mall with fiddler Buddy Ro brought the festivities to a close. The weekend was an ernest effort on part of our SGA to make student life at ASU more enjoyable. Over the remaining school year, they would offer even more of the same.

The town of Blowing Rock becomes to many linds, a hamlet consisting of seven or eight uildings, e ch dedicated in its own way to the erennial pickling of the population of ASU, oone, Blowing Rock, Watauga and Avery ounties, and the Greater Northwestern North arolina area. To take on this tremendous jsponsibility in such a quiet and unassuming lanner verges on greatness paralleled only by the freck of the Hindenburg, the onset of Fonzie -shirts, Lend-Lease and the reign of Hugh IcCullen. But you all know aye-bout the Rock, don ' t ou all? Well, I don ' t. Or didn ' t. Maybe still don ' t. That ' s one reason I got saddled with this ssignment. So now that this little opus is nished and my fingertips are healing (very icely, thank you) I am one of the areas ' lading authorities on the ol ' Rockola, right? Don ' t bet your brew bread on it, boobie. Thus it begins. Armed only with wits (half of lem anyway) and my trusty photographer, I hose the democratic way in picking the first jstive hofbrau to visit. P.B. Scott ' s was the first ne out of the hat after 6 and 7 8. P.B. Scott ' s - Big talent for BIIIG bucks, errific.

I was going to write something about the lookstore but I don ' t know what they ' re calling it this week. The Jazz Parlour - Of the many swill stops along the way, this hoohah hut has a small semblance of class. While the music is repeated occasionally, the aspect of jazz keeps it from being monotonous. And best of all, in comparison the crowd is usually quiet and courteous. The Villa Maria -Somebody buy the place! If you do buy it, consider that George Alvan comes with it. Trying to find an intimate spot is as easy as finding a parking space. Disco lives, unfortunately and people will continue to shake their booties and other parts of their anatomies. I ' m, just jealous. Trained Bear Syndrome, I have. Coordination I lack. Holly ' s - A wonderful place if you just want to sit, drink and talk. Which is what I like to do. Food, too. Expensive, too. Hard chairs, rough tables and some of the nicest people to serve you. And the damnedests skeet shooting game that ever cheated me out of trophies. When you pull this tired tome from your bookshelf twenty years from now and gaze at the pages over your midnight bowl of cornflakes, you, of you are among the Rock Rider Group, will sit back and say, ' That fool didn ' t know what he was talking about. " You might be saying that now. But opinions au like. . . you know, everybody has one. There is still the fact that students have to travel some 8 miles to find whatever enterainment they want. Boone can ' t offer much more than Buzz Burgers and the next showing of Smokey and the Bandit. And Boone will stay dry as long as there ' s a Baptist drawing a living breath and the spirit vendors in Blowing Rock can pull a voting lever. But try to imagine beer in Boone. Actual weekends where students are in Boone between the hours of 6 p.m. and 4 a.m.? Raping, looting, pillaging and worse. It would make the sacking of Rome look like a Tupperware party. Thousands of dollars in lost traffic ticket revenue for the state? Unthinkable. Communistic. So why not have beer on campus: On tap at the B.I.? ' Fraid not. No Wey! by James K. Flynn People by nature need places to congregate and things to do. No matter what the games may be, from working out at the gym, to running with friends, or riding the wind on man-made wings, to dropping eggs out of windows, or just general killing time at the dorm with a close friend. The games people play are as individual in styles and practices as they that play them.

Whenever the first few flakes of snow fall, you can go outside and hear many voices crying, " It ' s snowing! It ' s snowing! " But soon the excitement fades, and snow is just as ordinary a thing as the cafeteria or eight o ' clock classes on Monday morning. Besides those first cries in recognition of the first snowfall, there is another significant indication that winter is finally here. A big drop in the abundance 46 Games People Play of trays is always noted in the Cafeteria or the B.I. as students prepare to challenge the awesome " President ' s Hill. " Another pretty good indication of snow is when your roommate enters the room with something behind his back and proceeds to lay a three pound snowball lightly across the side of your head, or you wake in the morning to find someone has gra- ciously left a small mound of snow in each shoe. Games People Play 4 7 Still further little clues that snow has fallen are: getting hit with a snowball while taking a shower; laughing at someone falhng on ice and then proceeding to plant your posterior beside them; jumping up in the morning to find that there is no hot water or to find your room quite able to keep a coke good and cold without storing it in the refrigerator; and finally, hearing someone say in disgust, " Oh Great, It ' s snowing again.

It ' s the only way to clear off all that gray and black tinted snow that ' s been around for a long while. It ' s a signal that spring is on it ' s way.

" ' Kti :Mi±t Um ?r ' 1f% X A Question For Many Generations The Great Debate Since before Hiroshima, the Atomic Energy Commission has overseen the development of domestic nuclear energy reactors. Billions of dollars, public and private, have been spent for the implementation of a chain of reactors. Private corporations, G.E. and Westinghouse among others, began to develop their own reactors in hopes of government contracts. They were heavily staked by public funds, to research nuclear power plants, and in turn, produce energy cheaply and reap larger profits. Much was at stake when protests were heard voiced against the proliferation of nuclear power. The biggest complaint of the anti-nuke forces was the absence of a feasible long-range plan for the dis posal of the toxic wastes left by nuclear reactions. These wastes will be our problem for thousands of years to come. You can ' t just pour them into the ground, although one disposal plan calls for just that using salt mines in Wyoming. So far the anti-nuke forces have been successful in halting any such disposal method. They have brought an opposing view into the public focus and in so doing, ended the tyranny of the AEC. The AEC now is constructed into two offices. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will replace the AEC, and the Energy Research and Development Agency (ERDA). will begin to explore the limitless field of alternate energy sources. Solar, wind, and tide power had long been conceived, but never had a concerted effort of research and development taken place. We have exploited our environment for her irreplaceable resources, kiOed great lakes and rivers, and made the air we breathe unfit. Now we are held at bay by utUity companies up to their necks in capital investments proposing our earth ' s crust be filled with toxic wastes —poisons that will bear radioactive properties for thousands of years to come. The time has come to live within our threatened ecosystem ' s limits. If we don ' t, we ' ll be making a mistake we can ' t live with. Tom McAuliffe Nuclear power is a reality. For twenty-one years the fissioning of the uranium atom has been used for peaceful methods, for the benefit of mankind, to create heat for the generation of electrical power. At Shippingport, PA, in 1957, commercial electrical power was first generated and today nuclear power is a growing part of our electric system. In North CaroUna, about 25% of our electric power is generated by the atom, and the savings to consumers are substantial. In 1976, Duke saved each customer $63 because of its nuclear power generation. Using nuclear power is both good and bad. The good is that it is cheaper than using fossil fuels, it does not pollute the atmosphere, and that it saves our fossil fuels for other purposes. The bad is that the fissioning does create radioactive products which must be disposed of safely. This is one more price we must pay for our technology. Some other trade-offs we think are necessary are the automobile emission products, the chemical wastes from manufacturing, the carbon dioxide buUd-up in our atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, the sulfur oxides put into our atmosphere by electric generating plants burning coal and oil. This latter amounts to 17,000 milHon tons annually. Many state that nuclear power is dangerous, that it kills, or sickens inhabitants near the stations. There has never been a fataUty in the commercial nuclear power industry due to radioactivity or the nuclear process in the 21 years it has been functioning. Fatalities may well occur some day. Compare this record to other industries: coal mining accidents, black-lung disease, oil fires, railroad accidents, brown-lung disease, trucking, kepone poisoning, etc. In all of man ' s activities, there are ever present dangers, but still the benefits are considered worth the risks, and, I think, so is true of the nuclear power industry. Man ' s technological progress, which we call standard of living, has many pitfalls which are considered effects due to the chemicals added to our food products for preservation and for more rapid growth of plants and animals. About every 8 to 10 years, the demand for electricity has doubled. How can this generation of electrical power be provided? I agree with Tom Dalyell, a writer for the British magazine New Scientist, who writes in the September 29, 1977 issue, page 816, the following: " For my own part, I cannot hide my impatience with those who are beating the anti-nuclear power drum, and will Usten to them only if they give a solemn promise that they themselves will go without electricity in 1987.

Cornerstone of an Institution Belk Library, in the middle of campus, and central to the university because of its function as the academic center of ASU, will have a new face in the coming months. Reflecting the educational expansion of the university, construction will begin in the spring of this year, with completion anticipated in November 1979, some twenty months later. Besides having the capacity to accomodate an additional 200,000 volumes (a 66% increase) and about 500 more seating spaces (for a total of 1800), the new building vdll feature 52 additional enclosed study carrels and a 24-hour room which will function independently of the library and offer students an all-night study hall where they may smoke, drink coffee, and snack.

Academics 61 62 Academics Financial Aid at ASU Our Door is Rlways Open Wlien You Need it Most More than one-half of the student body at ASU depends on some kind of financial aid to stay in school and earn their degree. Under the direction of Steve Gabriel and Wes Weaver, about six milhon dollars in Federal, State, and private funds are distributed to applicants each year. Without this aid, many students would never attend a single class. Each year, ASU ' s Financial Aid Office applies for federal funds to conduct a National Direct Student Loan program. Uncle Sam also underwrites the College Foundation, a non-profit organization that funnels monies of private financial institutions to needy students. The federal government not only guarantees the loan, but pays the 7% interest rate. As with the National Direct Loan, the note becomes due nine months after the student leaves school. Grants and Scholarships are available on the basis of need and academic excellence in order to ease the climbing costs of education. Approximately 1500 students participated in State and Federal work programs, administered on campus by the ASU Financial Aid office. According to Wes Weaver, the programs are designed " to help as many students as possible and to make school a reality for those who otherwise could not enroll. " " Our door is always open. " Wes Weaver and Financial Aid director, Steve Gabriel, are ready to listen to you. Academics 63 The Edge Accessible professors make the difference Because the " publish or perish " stigma is not as marked as it is at many other large universities, students at Appalachian are afforded a rare opportunity for access to the professors and Ph.D ' s within their departments. Besides being available to the interested student during his non-teaching hours, most of Appalachian ' s professors teach not only graduate and upper-level courses, but survey courses as well, and even the non-major is exposed to a department ' s finest professors. This, combined with the many avenues that are accessible at a large and expanding university, enable the resourceful student an unusual opportunity to give his schooling a meaningful direction. In Academics, we have highlighted some of these students and revealed many of the options available to the enterprising Appalachian student. Paul West, Chairman of SGA Academic Affairs, gets some needed assistance in the use of the sliderule from Dr. Olander. Dr. Dewel oversees Robert Richards on the electron microscope. Dr. Stines and Jim Barnett hai ' e a laugh over Plato. 64 Academics Dr. Montaldi and Susan Davis check for bacterial growth on a streak plate. Clark Johnston gets instruction from Dr. Richardson and Dr. Kitchens in the computer room of the Math Dept. Academics 65 The thrust in Elementary Education today is to encourage co-operation and stimulate a " help one another " attitude among children. The idea is that if a healthy attitude toward education and their peers can be instilled in children at an early age, when they are learning simpler tasks and there are fewer ways in which to make mistakes, then they will take a positive attitude into their upper academic training. The trend is best seen in contemporary teaching techniques, such as " Self-Concept Work " (where teachers reinforce a child ' s natural curiosity and teach him that he can trust himself and others) and " Mainstreaming, " in which children with special needs, such as the physically handicapped, are integrated into the regular classroom. Another emphasis is on teachers as role models — education students are taught that teachers ' relationships with one another are an important source of imitation and in order that children may develop peer-group helpfulness, they must first perceive it in adults. A particular feature of Appalachian ' s Elementary Education curriculum is the Middle School Program, which limits methods courses and places more emphasis on the academic role of the teacher in grades four through nine, has been studied as the best program of its kind in the nation, and shows good employment potential. Teaching Mark DTeibelbis thinks the most important qualities in teaching youngsters are empathy and imagination. 66 Academics A Unique Experience Noel Todd is doing her Student Internship, where she teaches a college prep Senior English class. The primary objective of the Department of Secondary Education is that the teachers-to-be achieve academic competence; therefore, emphasis in the curriculum is upon the discipline a student wishes to teach. Secondarily, there is a focus in education courses on skills development and the psychological and cultural aspects of education. In education, several innovative options have entered the curriculum so that a teacher might have a better understanding of the diverse cultural settings into which he might enter. The " Multi-Ethnic " and " Urban Education " courses expose students to the cultural dynamics encountered in metropolitan areas. " Appalachian Education " , a part of the Appalachian Studies Program, focuses on problems peculiar to the Appalachian region. These secondary courses not only benefit students by strengthening their skills in dealing with unique educational problems but by helping to illustrate to the future teachers the value of empathy and the importance of adaptability. Noel Todd. . . ' The key word is exchange. I have learned that all ideas aren ' t immediately accepted by students and that a teacher must be able to offer up ideas for careful scrutiny by her students and must be willing to participate in a dialogue of differing ideas. Academics 67 Students With A Special Job A senior in the department of Special Education begins his year at Broughton Hospital in Morganton, where he is not only called upon to put his undergraduate training to use, but is exposed to the ways in which a major institution operates. During his Broughton experience at either Western Carolina center or the Correctional Facility for Juvenile Offenders, the student works with the moderately to severly retarded, the emotionally disturbed or those with learning disabilities, in addition to carrying fifteen hours of course work. The six-month practicum is part of the Special Education Department ' s " applied training " program, which entails a year of observation in Watauga County, his work at Broughton, and finally a student internship in the public schools, insuring extensive practical training for the student and exposing him to working conditions in numerous environments.

Because a combination of schooling and professional training is viewed as his best possible preparation, the speech pathology student spends as much time in the capacity of clinician as he does in his undergraduate courses. In addition to their work in several public school systems, student clinicians work at the Watauga Nursing Care Center with stroke victims and at the Hardin Park special school.

The Media Lab, a facility open to students, houses mimeograph machines, movie and slide projectors, overhead projectors, and numerous other services. Under the auspices of the Educational Media Department, the lab functions to facilitate students in their classroom activities. Several instructors man the lab and teach students how to use the machines, such as the mimeograph (for nmning off many copies of an outline or paper), the projectors (for showing slides or movies), or the overhead projector, which may be used to enlarge outlines, graphs, or pictures on a screen or may be used to trace graphs or pictures. Imaginative students can enhance any presentation by employing any of the services available to them in the Educational Media Lab. Another facility operated by the depEirtment is the Children ' s Library, the only one of its kind in the Southeastern United States, where Elementary Education students, in particular, become acquainted with child-oriented literature. Mark Cunningham dry mounts a collage of souvenirs from a New York trip. Mike Leggett operates the copy camera. Academics 71 Our Product Considered to be one of the finest departments in the nation, Industrial Arts and Technical Education is one of the few departments on campus that can claim 100% employment for its graduates. In-depth skill preparation, or the intensive " learning by doing " approach that is the department ' s educational focus, has been adopted by universities across the United States. The sucess of Industrial Arts at Appalachian is reflected in its registration rate. In sixteen years, registration in the department ' s courses has grown from forty-six to more than a thousand students. To accomodate for the fantastic growth of the department, planning for a new building, with more space and improved facilities, is underway. Mitzi Huarst uses a blowtorch to melt down scrap metal.

The Wind Ensemble, the University and the Chamber Singers and the Glee Clubs provide a rich source of entertainment and enjoyment for the university. The Music Department also annually sponsors the Contemporary Music Festival, when a well-knoviTi composer visits Appalachian for a week and participates in many of the activities hosted by the department. Music students work diligently ;— in class and in many out of class sessions in order to master their instruments. Acconci atASU The fourth year of the Appalachian National Drawing Competition saw Vito Acconci, a widely-celebrated Canadian conceptualist, judge pieces entered from every state in the nation. Under the direction of Judy Humphrey, the ANDC has grown from a competition of regional scope to an art show with national participation. In addition to its significance as a prestigious event, the competition serves as an invaluable teaching aid, complementing the secluded working atmosphere of Appalachian by exposing art students to current concepts and trends. Along with other exhibits and artistic endeavors supported by the department, the evolution of " Pinions, " one of several cultural magazines published by students of the university, has proven extraordinary under the guidance of Mary Shultz. Vito Acconci visited the ASU Campus for four days in February, conducted several displays, and judged the Appalachian National Drawing Competition. 1 X 1 JBHI mr ¥ K H " • • . i ••••■ 1 i 8 b m sl Above: The art studio gives Micheal Hudley room to grow.

Business is Cooking in Home Ec. The attractive ladies are still there, but the Department of Home Economics ' curriculum is doing much to dismiss the outdated conception of the little lady who takes a B.A. and becomes a housewife. In addition to the standard degree program in Home Economics Education, there are three business-oriented majors offered by the department. " Foods and Nutrition " , accredited by the American Dietetics Association, is a rigorous course which requires a Chemistry minor. " Housing Interiors and Equipment " majors take courses in drafting along with several other Industrial Arts courses and attend Food and Nutrition Expositions in Charlotte. The course of study of the " Clothing and Textile Merchandizing " degree candidate culminates in a spring trip to 7th Avenue in New York City. The department ' s emphasis on training competent individuals in germane fields of study is reflected in the 97% placement claimed by Home Economics ' graduates.

Objective: Field Expertise Cadets sit thinking on their way to the war games. During the year, rappelling, orienteering, markmanship and other exercises are mastered by ROTC students in weekly laboratories that culminate in a Spring Field Exercise commonly called the " War Games " . In the War Games, underclassmen are given a timetable to meet certain objectives— seniors are there to see that they do not. The all-day execise proves valuble not only as a test of skill and discipline but as the best training experience students can recieve. Mike Hawkins and Butch Wardlaw, senior antagonists in the war games, were awarded second and third place respectively in the ROTC First Regional Summer Camp. Cadets prepare for the start of the war games. First year ROTC students are taught the basics in appeling. Academics 79 P.E. Opens Services To Students Besides the six degree programs offered within the " academic umbrella " of the Department of Health, Phiysical Education, and Recreation, there are many unique minors such as " Dance " and " Athletic Coaching " (for non-majors), and other associated activities, such as the Intramural Campus Program, sponsored by the department. Increasingly, students are taking advantage of the extended time and facilities made available to them by the Intramural Campus Program. In addition to scheduling more hours in the gym and the swimming pool, the program ' s director. Dr. James Avant, has been able to open other areas of Varsity Gymnasium for use by students, so that the Rehabilitation Room, containing a universal gym and other weigh-training equipment, is now scheduled for students, and an archery range is available two nights a week. The opportunity to exercise is a privilege that should be open to all students and Dr. Avant and the department should be commended for making their services more available this year.

Job Potential 100% in Driver ' ' s Ed, Students have been given greater use of the P. E facilities through the work of Dr. James Avant. In ' Advanced Tecniques ' students master maneuvers needed for driving in poor conditions. " Flexibility " is an important word to seniors approaching graduation and the job market. The number of degrees on the market and the resulting devaluation of the diploma has meant that a college graduate can no longer be certain of employment. A program offered within the Department of Driver and Traffic Safety Education that gives a graduate a great deal of flexibility enables him to obtain teacher certification in his major and work toward a concentration in Driver ' s Education. The results speak well for themselves— 100% employment for students graduating from Appalachian. If you are looking for ways to enhance your job marketability, it ' s an option to explore. Academics 81 I ' M OK YOU ' RE OK ...But what about them? I Though Counselor Education and Research is primarily a graduate department which trains development specialists to serve as advisors and counselors in public schools, universities, industry, and government, the department sponsors several programs which benefit the entire university. On the academic level, professors bring their counseling experiences into " Life and Career Planning, " a class which generally services freshmen and sophomores who aren ' t certain of the academic course they wish to pursue. Through testing and discussion, students leave the class having achieved not only a better understanding of their own talents and aptitudes, but also of their occupational and social preferences. Another service made available through the department is the Psychological Services and Counseling Center, where students can go for everything from academic and occupational advising to personal counseling.

E£K OaN3£L A 6 Academics 82 Academics 83 For eight years, between its authorization in 1926 and the estabhshment of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in 1934, individuals and communities that existed within the Park ' s boundaries were relocated by federal order. Recently, in an effort to examine community history and the impact of displacement on individuals and communities, the Park Service commissioned ASU ' s History Department to restore structures and explore the family histories of those displaced. Dr. Pulley directed work at the site of Little Cataloochee, once an isolated, self-sustained commimity in Haywood County, NC, and found in speaking to several of the individuals involved in the abandonment of their homes, ambivalent community are still allowed reunions every year and they bury their dead at the site of the old tovvmship; they love the area and consider its ground sacred. When they first relocated, they felt, of course, great resentment. However, today, many of those who joined other communities consider that their move was the most significant and auspicious event in their lives. The opportunities presented to them by their n ew environments enabled them to grow and prosper in directions not open to them in their isolated mountain environment, and though they view Cataloochee through the eyes of their youth, they consider themselves members of another time and another place. This couple was removed from the area that is now the Great Smokey National Park on its establishmetit in 1934. Dr. Roy Carroll had an encounter of H ' the 4th kind, when he met wasps, r while cataloging structures in the " Hannah Cabin. Department 84 Acadetnics 1 Restores History Academics 85 Debbie England argues with members of the English Group that Hemmingway was wrong about Fitzgerald. Generated by student interest within the department, the English Group has met weekly in informal sessions this year, inviting guest speakers, discussing the writing of group members, and examining ideas generated in their classes and by speakers visiting the campus. In addition to members of the English faculty who have shared their ideas on literature and writing with the group, several speakers from other departments, including Helen Latour of Foreign Languages, Susan Hilton of Watauga College, Linda Welden of Communication Arts and Jim Stines of Philosoply have spoken at the group ' s | invitation. In March, the English Group, whose membership has grown to include students from several other departments, sponsored four Appalachian students in the English College Quiz-Bowl Competition, competing with other North Carolina schools in the fields of EngHsh and American Literature. The group also joined Jim Stramm in publishing a highly-regarded arts journal, the Cold Mountain Review. More Than Literature Roland Mathias, a Webh poet, spoke in several English classes and an evening session. The English department sponsers an annual trip to Europe. 86 Academics Communication is Our Business As classical as forensics and contemporary as T.V., the range of activities sponsored by the " Communication Arts " Department enables students to express their own talents through extra-curricular activities in debate, theatre, and broadcasting vv hile providing a source of entertainment and enjoyment for the rest of the university. Through the department, the Forensics Team, under the direction of Dr. Terry Cole, sponsors its own invitational tournament, and, in an effort to debate the finest schools, itself travels as far as Mississippi and Ohio. In these intercollegiate debates, only one topic is addressed throughout the nation every year — the complex nature of the issues and their topicality (for example, " What are the limits of presidential power? " , " How do we prevent another gas shortage? " ) make for an engaging and informative exchange for participants and spectators alike. Concerning communication along more modem lines, an effort recently has been made to obtain privileges for television broadcasting — if they are sucessful, then ASU will have the capacity to broadcast university activities and the potential for an exciting instructional facility. There ' s a possibility that WAS U-TV will obtain its own channel for broadcasting events on the campus videotapes. It would be a strong addition to the Communication Arts curriculum. Academics 87 Experience The Dialect The key word describing the new directions explored by the Language Arts curriculum is " applicability. " Recognizing that conversance with foreign languages is not only essential in the academic world, but in economic and social spheres as well, imaginative professors within Language Arts and other departments have constructed several interdepartmental majors that enable students to gain certification in both a business - oriented field and a foreign language. Under the direction of Dr. William Tvirpin., Economics, several students are currently enrolled in courses of study that combine economics with a foreign language, and there are options in the curriculum that allow for other business-related combinations. The physical boundaries of the economic world are shortened everyday, and the necessity to overcome language and social barriers is imperative - the dynamic career orientation offered in the Language Arts curriculum is an intelligent response to the need. Department Tours European Countries This page: Several summer trips have been co-sponsered by the department of Philosophy and Religion. One of the most unique learning experiences offered in the Appalachian curriculum can be found in the Summer Study-Abroad Program, which the Department of Philosophy and Religion has co-sponsored several times in the past few years. Open to all students, the program enables them to tour various European countries and benefit from academic instruction from professors who integrate the literary, historical, and philosophical significance of their visits. Six hours credit are awarded to students for their attendance at lectures and for keeping a daily journal. A typical expense of $1195 covers air transportation from New York and back, hotel rooms, two meals a day, field trips, insurance and tuition. In 1976, a group touring Greece and England visited Stonehenge and Old Bailey, where they witnessed the British court in session. Students who participate in the Study-Abroad Program enjoy an unique and enlightening experience. Far left top: Latin lives in several courses taught by Dr. Latour.

Practical Politics Taught To integrate the practical aspects of politics into the theoretical slant already existing in its curriculum, the Political Science Department offered several courses this year under Tom Mackey, a veteran campaigner of both congressional and presidential races. Mackey, a graduate of the University of Baltimore Law School, brings to his classes his experience in polling, public relations and other political duties acquired in the presidential races of Robert Kennedy and Jimmy Carter, and the two congressional races of Andrew Young. To introduce his students to the feel of a political contest, Mackey relates many of the consequential moments and decisions of his experience in campaigns. His curriculum is skill-oriented. His texts enable students to identify and gauge the significance of various members of the media. The technical skills of writing and interpreting polls are taught. With a daily examination of the headlines, Mackey lends insight into the political machinations of the Capital. The experience the campaingner brings into his classes gives students the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary for their initiation into the political arena. Tom Mackey, who was active in campaigning with Robert Kennedy and Jimmy Carter, finds Jody Powell and his lady friends make the headlines again. High school students recreate the United Nation ' s scenario, a program designed by Roland May. 90 Academics Mechanical Tutors and Computers Ever wanted to refresh your trig? Needed some work on your algebra? Wanted to learn how to use a computer? Self-instruction in all of these is now available to students through " mechanical tutors " in the Audio-Visual Services room of Belk Library. The auto-tutorial program, designed by Dr. Robert Richardson of the Math Department, consists of a wall-chart dictionary of alphabetically indexed subjects and 160 three to ten minute explanatory video-tape cassettes. Thousands of students have used the tapes to supplement their Math courses, though the service is open to any student. About a dozen schools in the Southeast are investigating the program and West Virginia State College has already implemented it. A valuable service offered to non-majors within the Math Department ' s curriculum is the three week hand-held computer module in Math 1010. Made possible through a grant from the Center for Instructional Development, the course introduces many students to the mathematical operations that are faciHtated by computers. Dr. Perry integrates theory with practice in his Math classes. Captain James Cole of the Starship Enterprise, is chagrined to find he can only move in Warp 6. Academics 91 PHYSICS IS More and more, students are being turned on to the many innovative courses offered in the physics curriculum. Physics is fundamental to nearly every academic discipline, and the professors of the physics department have worked with imagination in designing courses that are tailored to the specific needs of other departments while communicating the fundamental principles of the natural world. This is accomplished through stream-lining the mathematics involved and by integrating demonstrations into lectures that enable a student to experience phenomena at the time he is creating a model in his mind. The " demonstration approach " is expensive and time-consuming, requiring great effort on the part of the professor, but the impression these demonstrations have upon his students is well worth it. Besides the major curriculum of study, some elective courses that supplement other departments are " Physics of Sound " (music majors), " Biomechanics " or the physics of sports activities (health-related majors), " Printing, " " Medical Physics, " and ' Radiation Safety. " Dr. Nicklin watches Nancy Commack get a 500,000 volt charge from the Van de Craaff.

LEARNING BY DOING ACADEMICS 93 Biology : The Study Of In addition to laboratories in which students examine everything from intra-cellular components to fungi and the physiology of the nerves, the Department of Biology supports several unique programs in the life sciences. An environmental studies area, located behind the Center for Continuing Education is the site of many field trips during the year and makes for a nice hike for any Appalachian student. The department also sponsors many overnights into the Blue Ridge and also more extensive trips. Recently a group hiked through the Rocky Mountains. To facilitate plant studies and research, work will be completed this summer on a new greenhouse. The Herpetarium, supervised by Joe Williams, a graduate student, is open to students, and houses many turtles and snakes, including rattlers and copperheads - Fluffy, the boa constrictor, has her own glassed-in cage in the hallway. Professors withing the department integrate these facihties into their lectures and labs to make Biology an interesting and exciting discipline to study. The Environmental Studies area makes for a nice hike throughout the year.

Academics 95 Chem Students Committed For most students, happiness is completing the four or five chemistry courses necessary for their life science degree; however, for a special few, satisfaction can only be gained with " Physical Chemistry " or " Qualitative Organic Analysis " in their curriculum. The rigorous course of study that leads to a degree in chemistry includes several requirements not demanded of other majors. Attendance at the Senior Seminars, where government and university researchers visit the campus every Friday afternoon to present their current findings, is encouraged. Senior research, leading to a paper and presentation before the faculty, is required of every B.A. candidate. The demands of a chemistry major are difficult, but for the committed student, there is a good deal of satisfaction to be found in an intimate knowledge of the molecular world. David Heavner, a graduate student, is doing his research on the isolation of hydrocarbons from ferns. Chemistry majors keep up on the current research in Friday afternoon seminars. Dr. Si ik and Dr. Rliyiie display their new lab manual, the royalties of which are donated to the A.R. Smith Scholarship Fund. The two men also collaborated in designing a self-paced Introductory Chemistry course. 96 Academics Department Takes Mexican Trip fea At the site of an Aztec ruin. Dr. Harvard Ayars ponders the fate of generations past. This indian wandered into the camera ' s view of an A: tec ruin. The learning experience generated last year by their two trips to Oaxaca (pronounced Woe-ha-ca), Mexico, where the center of the Aztec Civilization once flourished, has led the Anthropology Department to propose a permanent base of operations for study by university faculty and students. The anthropological significance of the site is tremendous - Monte Alban, the movm tain top city that served for thousands of years as the Aztec capital, is located in Oaxaca, and contains many archeological sites in its ruins. Several different Indian groups Uve in the region and Dr. Harvard Ayers, who has supervised the Mexican trips, regarded the immersion in other cultures, in which his students actually participated in the history they were studying, as the best educational opportunity they could receive. The potential for zoological and botanical study is also great — with in three hours of Oaxaca are such diverse environments as the snowbound Sierra Madre del Sur and the tropical Forest of the Gulf and Pacific Coasts. For the more temperate individual however, the climate of Oaxaca averages a delightfully dry 80°. The tequila is good there, but the mescal is better. Academics 97 Alternatives in Correction A crucial problem confronting America today is how to deal effectively with the criminal offender. The failure of current criminal policy is reflected in a rising crime rate, prison rectivism rates, (50-70% of those sentenced to prison terms will be sentenced again on being released), and by the fundamental inhumanity of confinement when there are alternative methods that can lead to rehabilitation. We spoke vwth Prof. Aaron Randall, who is doing research in the field of corrections, about the ineffecacy of current correctional methods and about some alternatives now being explored. Traditional penal policy, primarily retributive, has focused on the individual that led to a criminal character, and recommended a just punishment in relation to the severity of the offender ' s crime. Some critics today, however, feel that the state deflects responsibility from itself when it centers on the offender and does not seek ways in which to alter his environment. The most effective way to deal with the child-abuser, for example, who it is generally believed was once a victim of child-abuse himself, is not through punishment, but in providing him with insight into the problem and by changing the enviroment that leads to the attacks on his children. The frustrations that are inappropriately dealt with when a parent abuses his child are not far removed from the frustrations of the ghetto teen who quits school to support his family then, unable to find an adequate job, turns to theft or robbery. A flaw in retributive policy is that in seeking to punish the individual it often neglects factors, such as the home and school environment, which may play a major role in provoking crime, and which, if altered, might prevent it. Another shortcoming of retributive correctional policy is that it tends to incriminat rather than rehabilitate individuals. In addition to the social and personal adjustments he must make in relating to his new environment on the outside, the ex-inmate is often shunned by all those except people involved in criminal activities: the stigma he must bear as an ex-con often limits his employment opportunities. The problem of how to deal effectively with the criminal offender is very complex and there can be no easy solutions. However, several alternatives to imprisonment are currently being explored. Community-based programs give youthful offenders, usually the products of disrupted homes, the benefit of 98 Academics supervision by dedicated individuals who serve as positive role models. Often there are trained counselors who live in or visit the homes. Wilderness programs for adolescents have proven effective in teaching the youths the value of working vdthin a group, and in helping the children attain a degree of self-reliance and confidence in dealing effectively with the world. For adults, work-release programs, in which the individual spends some part of the day in prison, but works and is sometimes given free time of his own on the outside, are being implemented. Volunteers have helped by visiting inmates who are sometimes allowed out once a week for dinner or a movie. Ex-inmate organizations work at sensitizing the public to the problems of the inmate and at smoothing the transition made by ex-cons by assisting him in locating a job, and if necessary, a home. Though it is too early to evaluate the rehabilitative effectiveness of these alternative programs, preliminary evidence indicates that they are at least as effective as institutional programs and cost a fraction of the $10-$25,000 it costs yearly to maintain one inmate in a prison. It seems necessary that we explore these other alternative methods of correction if we hope to eliminate the determining factors of criminal behavior. Dr. Randall spoke with the Rhododendron about alternatives to our current penal policy. Geologists Backpack in Southwest The Geology Department sponsors many field trips throughout the year so that students may benefit from practical experience in the field as they are learning survey methods and identification techniques. Besides weekend excursions to local sites in the Blue Ridge, more extensive trips to sites with more complex formations such as Texas and New Mexico, are supervised by the department about every six months. Backpacking reduces the expense of the trips greatly (a trip to New Mexico would run $25 for transporation, $50-$100 for food and recreation), though students must be prepared for any kind of weather - last summer, a group in the mountains of Wyoming spent some of their time in snow and rain. On that trip, the group hiked twenty-five miles into the mountains and weren ' t below 10,000 feel during their field experience. This spring twenty Geology students and faculty took advantage of the extended vacation to study in New Mexico. The Geology department sponsers extended trips to the west about every six months. Academics 99 Expansion Unchecked " Community and Regional Planning, " an important degree program within the Geography Department ' s curriculum, stresses the planning and preservation of rural environments. We spoke with Dr. Robert Keber, advisor to the planning degree, addressing the issue of Boone ' s expansion and its concomitant corruption to our mountainous environment. Keber emphasized the need for a broad public consciousness concerning the directions that Boone ' s growth is taking. Boone is no longer a small, quaint mountain village. With 13,000 people, it is the 39th largest and fifth fastest growing city in the state. Yet with no enforced growth management policy, Boone still operates with a small-town mentality. The city maintains one of the five worst water systems in the state in terms of supplying its citizens with adequate quantities of water. Boone is the largest city in North Carolina with a volunteer Fire Department. It seems clear that a conscientious growth program must be implemented in order that Boone may enter her new age while preserving the radiance of her youth. Above: Students cannot locate Boone in the map room of the Geography department on fifth floor Rankin. The room contains many detailed maps of areas in the U.S. and is open to students.

Ellis spoke with us about his start in business, offering ideas and insights into the initiation of the business school graduate into a business or management firm. Ellis bagan work as a part-time employee at the Center during his junior year. After working the front desk the next summer, he was offered an internship at the Center in Business and Management Training. His work was well-regarded and he began training for a permanent position as accountant his senior year. Ellis comments: " An employer likes to hire someone who is conscientious and easy to work with. He likes to see an individual with both immediate and career goals, maybe a plan for the next ten years. A graduate entering an establishment should remain adaptable. Sometimes he will be hired not for the skills he thinks are important, but for those his employers think he might develop. It is a good way to gain experience and broaden employment possibilities. It is important for the new-comer to not only familiarize himself with the style of the company, but to keep an active imagination for modifications which might improve efficiency; simply because he has not become accustomed to the old ways of doing things he will sometimes see a better way.

Appalachian ' s John A. Walker College of Business provides students with one of the outstanding business schools in the Southeast and prepares them through its curriculum, internship program, and computerized job placement service, with their best opportunity to enter the business world. One of three accredited business colleges in North Carolina, and the largest undergraduate business program in the state, the school is administered by a young and dynamic dean, Dr. Richard Sorenson, and a faculty that, though young, averages several years of practical business experience. A feature of the curriculum are the courses taught by executives-in-residence, specialists from industries vital to North Carolina, who give a special orientation to the economy and administration of their particular industry. Every year the active internship program sponsored by the college sends about thirty students into business and industry for fourteen weeks. Over 50% of the past 400 ASU interns have been offered full time jobs with the company where they did their internship. Finally, the computerized placement service maintained by the College of Business has enabled students to gauge what service will be most attractive, now and in the future, to various companies in business and industry. Besides enabling students to make intelligent decisions about the course of their curriculum, the placement service keeps companies across the Southeast up to date concerning the availability of ASU students for their business. Through its dynamic programs in job placement, internships and its curriculum, the College of Business has become one of the foremost programs in the Southeast . Kathy Higgins has a few hours left of accou n ting ahead of her. Gary Moser checks his program. The extesnsive sophisticated equipment in the computer room was furnished for students when the department moved into John Walker Hall. Acadeinics 105 Watauga College Watauga College is well known as an experiment in living and learning, where freshmen and sophomores, housed in a coed dorm, participate in a unique academic program. The residential college, which has been studied by experimental programs across the Southeast, enlists an imaginative faculty, and stresses student involvement in its team-taught, interdisciplinary curriculum. The real social benefit of Watauga is its sense of community, which facilitates the adjustment first-year students make from the closeness of family and home to university, providing an environment which fosters both personal and social growth. In addition to the broad co-corricular program which features a bi-monthly Artist and Lecture Series, a Career Speaker Program, the Watauga Newsletter and its own darkroom, this year Watauga initiated a Study Skills Progam, funded on an Exxon grant, in which twelve trained sophomores and juniors advise and help prepare freshmen for the academic rigors of college. Classes in Watauga College are conducted in an informal atmosphere and stress student participation. Susan Hackey advises students in the lounge of Watauga College. 106 Academics Students relax with a tune. The Experiment Continues Joe and Mary Watts have been the guiding force of the college for six years. A new addition came to Watauga when Joe IV arrived this winter. Their titles are Assistant Director and Resident Director of Watauga College, but Joe and Mary Watts have meant more in their six years of involvement vi ith the program than any official designation could suggest. Joe and Mary have been the young program ' s guiding force as it evolved through curriculur changes, dorm moves, increased enrollment and expansion. They feel that they have had the freedom to develop their talents and interests in their years with Watauga, and have learned to relate to all kinds of people and situations, but with the addition of Joe IV, know they must have more room and privacy — and so, next year Watauga will be without Joe and Mary for the first time. Though their future plans are uncertain, the couple would like to stay in Education and remain in the mountains.

My duties as a teacher and duties as a student don ' t conflict, they reinforce each other. " Graduate School Individuals seeking professional status and greater freedom within their field attend graduate school. Because the rigors of the curriculum require discipline and commitment, the grad student generally has a firm idea of where he is going and what it takes for him to get there. In general, the older a person is and the more work experience he has had, the better he will do in graduate school. The minimum requirements for admittance to the Graduate School are a 2.5 overall grade point average and a 3.0 in the student ' s major; a 3.0 mist be maintained during graduate work. Acceptance is also based on scores from the Miller ' s Analogy Test. At Appalachian, the largest graduate programs are in the departments of English, Education, Business, and Physical Education.

But afterall, giving pledges a bad time is not only fun, but can result in freshly laundered clothes, or a scrubbed kitchen floor.

This interraction brings recognition and prestige to a university, and at the same tinne providing an entertaining outlet. As college athletics have evolved, the stakes have constantly been raised. Institutional pride ultimately rides with every season. Winning has become everything. The " pride stakes " have spawned huge alumni associations that reach deep into their members ' pockets in search of winning teams. Although it may appear that the main objective of such organizations is to bolster the major sports of football and basketball, all sports at a university benefit. A successful football program could support a dozen or more so called " minor " sports. At ASU, a fledgling alumni association, the " Yosef Club " , under the direction of Wayne Clawson, is organizing athletic support. The club ' s pet project is the expansion of Conrad Stadium. 15,000 additional seats, including a new press box, and a field house make-up the project. ASU came close to losing its NCAA Division I status when a commission reviewed the stadium ' s seating capacity. Expansion was warranted. In spite of our dismal football record this fall, coach Jim Brakefield has brought the ASU program to a high level of excellence. As a result, big-time college football is here to stay. As the number of ASU alumni increases, so will their contributions. This support will field even more teams, giving more athletes the opportunity to compete at the highest amateur level. More winning seasons should also result, but more importantly, a greater number of student-athletes can share in the joy of varsity competition. The fans benefit as well. We have seen what Vaughan Christian ' s exciting soccer program has done to scintillate the student body. Crowds of 4,000 witnessed most home games, and the team drew a vocal following at awaymatches. The ASU student took great pride in this squad. Bobby Cremins has taken our doormat basketball program thrillingly close to the top in a few short seasons. Again, ASU sport fans are the primary beneficiaries of such success. It is tonic. Recently women ' s sports have changed the make-up of athletic departments across the country. Rightfully, sports are for everyone. Fans and athletes alike are better for their participation. It is soothing relief from an oftentimes all too real world. The mathematician, the bio-chemist, and the philosopher dedicate their lives to their discipline. They, and others like them, are the foundation of any university. But if you want to see the student body brought together into a surging mass of common hope: if you want to be sure, that if only for a day, your institution ' s name is on the lips of America; send that football team to the Orange, Sugar, or Cotton Bowl or basketball squad to the nation ' s final four. And while on your way to the top, be the best sports in the country. Pll RLONE The Mountaineer spirit of rugged individualism led to our adoption of Yosef. In the vernacular of the hills it means " " yourself Like all collegiate institutions, ASU is represented by a mascot, a symbol by which students and public can relate to. Ours is the ' YOSEF, ' a mountaineer fellow of high spirit. Yet, do we all realize the double connotation of the symbol ' YOSEF ' ? Not only does he represent our university as a whole being, but he also signifies the individual within us all. He represents " yourself! The Yosef Qub is the scholarship raising program for our athletic programs. A football player himself, alumnus Wayne Qawson heads up the Yosef Qub in an uphill struggle to raise funds for our athletes. Helping him out is secretary Dee Pendleton and that is it, two people handling an alumnus population of over 20,000 people. It was in this context that the idea of a student organization evolved to help the Yosef Qub and the Sports Information Director, Rick Layton. The word was spread and the students reacted. Tlie main purpose of these students would be to help deviate the menial tasks of both offices of Yosef and the SID so that their talents could be more fully utilized.. It soon became apparent that the enthusiasm of the students would allow for more work. They named themselves the YOSEF Athletic Ambassadors (YAA), and took on the task of increasing athletic awareness among students. With students in the group from all facets of college hfe, PR work was the least of their problems. Getting the students to actually come to more sporting events is the big task. Most recently the YAA and the school ' s Alumni Ambassadors put together Tony Searcy Night and the pre-game Victory Celebration Rally for the first round SC tournament. An organization that wants to grow, the Yosef Athletic Ambassadors is working for both ASU and " Yosef. 146 Sports The Rhododendron s Athlete of the Year Sill Beck Hcademic Rll-Rmerican Jacobs Blacking Trophy - ' 76 and ' 77 Three Yearm Rll-Conference " ♦•■ 1 ' ' ' ■ S - ' am Lights ' Shine in ' 77 Coach Bob Light ' s tennis team started out hke a Nolan Ryan Fastball, fast and powerful.

However, a close loss to Jacksonville, decisive losses to Flagler and Florida Tech, and a rained out match at Georgia Southern (in which the Apps were leading at the time), brought the Mountaineers back to Boone looking forward to Dartmouth University and playing at Grandfather Mountain. The home territory and the beauty of Grandfather Mountain were not enough, however, as the Apps succumbed to a 5-4 defeat. Outside of losing their only conference game to Fumian, another big disappointment for ASU ' s tennis team was the Duke match. Duke journeyed to Boone, but left behind their top players in Durham so they could study for exams. Apparently they didn ' t consider us a threat. The Mountaineers ran away with a 6-1 victory sending a red-faced Blue-Devil squad back to Durham. Other big wins included victories over William and Mary, and South Carolina. The Mountaineers traveled to Davidson College for the SC tournament confident of their abilities and looking forward to a good tournament. In the first days action, every entry for ASU, William and Mary, and Furman advanced to the semi-finals. It was here that ASU and William and Mary met each other with the rival splitting the action. In singles action, Dan Weant reached the number three singles finals, but lost. Davis Babb and Weant meanwhile, reached the number one doubles finals only to suffer defeat. It was Randy Redfield and Adnan Khan in the number three doubles finals who brought home a Southern Conference trophy for a first place finish. The 1978 season looks good with the majority of the players returning and looking for the Southern Conference title. Whereas Babb and Weant fell in the no.l doubles final, Adnan Khan teamed with Randy Redfield to take the Conference ' s no. 3 title. uxU MEN ' S TENNIS 1976-1977 Va.

Blessed with an abundance of power and singles hitters, the Apps play a murderous schedule which includes Wake Forest, Duke, N.C.

Inset: Freshman goals in his first three games. by RICK LAYTON Every school has athletic teams and outstanding seasons that become a part of the institution ' s athletic legacy, a source of conversation years later when talking of days gone by. Such will be the 1977 soccer season at ASU. For six years, under the recruiting and psychological and physical education and nutritional philosophies of coach Vaughn Christian, the fledgling ' soccer program at ASU had grown into a giant-killer. It reached a new peak in 1977 when the Mountaineers played for the championship of the South Regional, as one of 12 teams remaining in the NCAA playoffs. The regular season had been a stellar one, with some incredible statistics. The Apps had 377 shots on goal in the 14 games, compared to only 108 for the opponents. In all but one game ASU ' s total shots surpassed that of the opponents. In goals scored, the Mountaineers had 55 compared to 14 for the opponents. Five shutouts, three agianst Southern Conference teams, highlighted the season. All-America candidates Larry Panford and Michael Shepherd closed their careers brilliantly, while the star of freshman Thompson Usiyan began to rise with a brilliance that is destined to make him ASU ' s best player ever on a long list of stars. Usiyan ' s darting quickness and poetic handling of the ball gave him 13 goals in the Apps ' first three games of the season as ASU routed the opposition, 21-3. Next, ASU lost a hard-fought 2-0 decision at Clemson, where the Tigers had the nation ' s top-ranked club, even though again the Apps outshot their highly-ranked foe. Controversies over a disallowed Mountaineer goal and one Clemson goal that was allowed marred the afternoon. The Apps came back, however, and the only other flaw on the 11-1-1 regular season record was provided by an 0-0 tie with UNC-Chapel Hill in which ASU had a 28-8 edge on shots on goal. The Mountaineers entered the NCAA playoffs as the nation ' s 14th-ranked team and 156 Sports EMciting mquad drawm full houmv. Highly touted Madison was routed 5-1 in Conrad Stadium.

The record books should show more than a 3-1 loss to the Tigers. They should show that Appalachian took almost as many fans to South Carolina as the Tigers had.

As goalkeeper, Mike Shepherd turned in great performances game after game. In his three seasons in front of the net, " the keeper Sheep " posted 17 shutouts while giving up only 29 goals in over fifty contests. As a senior, Mike anchored Coach Christian ' s most powerful squad to date, earning a top twenty ranking and a trip to the Southern Regional finals. Perhaps Mike ' s most memorable performance was this season against the Tar Heels at Conrad Stadium. With the score deadlocked 0-0, and eight minutes to play, freshman standout, Thompson Usiyan was ejected from the game. The Apps were forced to play shorthanded for two overtime periods, a total of 28 minutes. A super offensive effort and fine goaltending preserved the tie in the dramatic contest.

Picked to take the SC Crown, the Apps were sky-high for the season opener against South Carolina, but fell 32-18. ASU ' s gridiron squad was picked by nearly everyone to finish first in the Southern Conference football race. Former conference powers East Carolina and William Mary had left the league, leaving the SC crown to be inherited by the Mountaineers. The Mounties had their powerful offense of ' 75 intact and both ready to go for the 1977 season. What could go wrong? Plenty did go wrong, as the Apps finished with a 2-9 record and their most dissappointing season since college football opened in Boone. The offense sputtered and fumbled while the defense allowed 330 points-the most in ASU ' s history. Their season included embarassing losses to East Tennessee State, East Carolina, and Western Carolina, as well as a 38-7 Homecoming devastation levied by Ball State. Despite the disastrous results of the ' 77 season, several players performed well through out the season. Emmitt Hamilton rushed for 961 yards this year, giving him over 2500 yards in his four years here; center Gill Beck was selected to play in the Blue-Gray game for his outstanding play at ASU; Pat Murphy, Sami Killman, Jay McDonald, and David Bowman all played consistently on defense, and David Abemathy kicked the ball well after a slow start. However, with 10 players coming back on defense (with a vengeful look in their eyes), and several players at the skilled positions on offense returning, App fans can sharpen their knives and get ready to return to devouring opponents. History has shown that those rare losing seasons in Appalachian State football have been followed by exceptional years. Mountaineer tradition expects nothing less. by RAY CRISCOE It was a tough year for Coach Jim Brakefield. (He fielded a capable squad that never got going.)

The Old College Try Twice a year, Tau Kappa Epsilon hosts a boxing tournament that captures the attention of ASU students. Season after season young men put their hearts on the Hne for the TKE trophy. In recent tournaments, Lees-McRae JC has entered well conditioned boxers, resulting in an intercollegiate atmosphere and better competition. The level of boxing improves each tourney. But will boxing ever become a varsity sport at ASU? Certainly the rivalries now existing with other institutions would fuel great interest. Properly handled, the sport could only prove a financial success, and participants would be better for their participation. Nevertheless, the boxing stigma remains. The brutal nature of the sport provides opponents of boxing with ready-made arguments against a college revival. There are no marching bands stirring up support for pugilists. Its been said that when a college boxer is killed in the ring they ban the sport. When a college football player is killed in action they name a section of the stands after him. The truth is that those who administer athletic programs remain blind to the vast differences between college and professional boxing. Headgear, 12 oz. gloves, and conscientious officiating with liberal use of the standing eight count protect the college pug. The sport can be run safely. Yet athletic departments are indifferent. Boxing ' s status remains unchanged, and the sport will likely remain a TKE commodity at ASU. However, the event has already become a Mountaineer tradition. For the fighters who participate, it ' s a thrill they ' ll never forget. ... if a college boxer is killed in the ring they ban the sport. When a college football player dies on the field they name a section of the stands after him. 174 Sports Above: Freshman Andy Pate (left) stopped Pat Florence in the semi-finals only to meet tourney MVP, Joe Kelly of Lees-McRae in the finals at 165 lbs.

The Start of Somethin ' Big The Apps are tough in Varsity Gym. Two-time conference champ, VMI, has never beaten a Cremin ' s team at home. The Keydets were routed December 10, 92-77. Coach Cremins is a winner • 111 How Sweet it Is! 1978 SC Champs Bobby Cremins " Coach of the Year in SC As we endured a long and disappointing football season, students and others began to speak of the basketball campaign just ahead. A chorus of glowing terms as " frontmnner " or " shoe-in, " made it readily apparent that Bobby Cremins and his squad had been dubbed, so to speak, as guardians of institutional pride, knights who would reclaim a soiled damsel. Calvin Bowser had been lost to graduation but four starters returned from the team that was a bucket shy of a coveted Eastern Regional birth. Juco transfer Renaldo Lawrence promised to contribute immediately and a promising freshmen cast fueled great optimism. But somehow " the can ' t miss " team did, and opened the season with three losses. N.C. State shattered a dream in the season opener, East Tennessee shelled us at home, while Lenior-Rhyne shook us down at their place. Powerful UNCC was next on a relentless schedule and the groaning could be heard all the way to Ocean Drive. " I learned a lot about myself, " said Coach Cremins. The team held a meeting before the UNCC contest and the players and coaches cleared the air. It brought the team closer together. Cremins was never a quitter and the Apps showed the same fight that night when they whipped UNCC for their first win. Now they were a team. After thrashing VMI and Furman in Varsity Gym to up their record to 4-3, the conference race was ripe for taking. The Apps went 5-0 in conference play before losing to a hot shooting Marshall club in Boone. Two more league wins, including Furman away, and a 1 1 0-63 blow-out of visiting Chattanooga salted the league championship away. The 9-3 mark was tops in the conference. Walter Anderson and Darryl Robinson once again comprised the best backcourt in the conference. Tony Searcy ' s emergence as a rebounding king gave us the offensive board. Mel Hubbard continues his intense board play while transfer " Boo " Lawrence was all scorer. Freshman Paul Keller, and Junior Tim Leahy did most of the reserve work for what was basically a five-man show. But every game there was a sixth man on the bench, pacing and exhorting his team on, grinning a grimace of frustration whenever fortune frowned. Each bad call and turnover collected a due. He came to Boone a youngster, with no where to go but up. " It ' s not easy to win a lot of games, " he cautioned, but fans love success and losing is no fun. So win he did, because Coach Cremins is a winner, and his men are champions. 1 nSU Basketball 1978: Stat a and Peraonnel PLAYER GP FGM-FGA PCI. FTM-FTA PCX.

As team captain and only senior, he once stood up and extemperaneously thanked the community leaders of North Wilkesboro for hosting a banquet in the team ' s honor. Said Tony: " I ' d like to say that on behalf of the team we really appriciate being able to come down here and put on this exhibition... Thanks for making us feel so welcome here and again come and watch us this season. " " I was so proud of him I could have hugged him " , Bobby Cremins would later tell wife, Carolyn. As the team spokesman he has set a sparkUng example for the leaders to follow. And in so doing, he has fortified ASU basketball tradition. Statistically, T-Bone, as he is known by everyone, has also earned a line or two in the record book. This season he shattered All-American John Pyecha ' s single season rebounding mark of 352, a milestone untouched since 1955. Tony finished the season with a 16 pt. avg., and 13 rebounds a game. His rebounding average stands in the nation ' s top ten. The regular season finale against High Point was declared " Tony Searcy Night " , and T-Bone responded with a career high of 31 pts., and a record equaling 24 rebounds. Of his stellar performance Tony was calm, though emotive. " Everybody made it special, I just responded to the situation. This game was easy to get up for, I was loose and I wanted to play.

Coach Oie Laraen Named 5C Coach of the Year. 99 The powerhouse of Southern Conference swimming, East CaroHna, vacated the conference leaving the title up for grabs. The preseason favorite was Marshall and last years fourth place team, ASU, was one of several contenders. ASU was sporting a young club, yet some of these youngsters were competitively seasoned swimmers. Of one newcomer, Mike McCormick, Coach Larson says, " With his size and times, he gives evidence of having great potential. Certainly he will be one of the better swimmers at ASU. " He was indeed! Three rising seniors, Kurt Wickizer, Mike Barnett, and Captain Mike Wasserman were to lead the team to their first meet of the season at the Brenau Relays in Florida. The Apps left the Sunshine State beaming with confidence, pride, and a first place finish in the meet. ASU enjoyed its best Southern Conference swim meet ever.

" Coach of the Year and the Southern Conference Most Valuable Swimmer went to Appalachian State ' s Ole Larson and Mike McCormick respectively. McCormick alone set 3 ASU and 2 Conference records and was on relay teams that broke 2 school records. On being Coach of the Year, Larson replied, " I always feel that an honor of this sort is a measure of the quality of athletes you have under you. Although I receive credit and for that I ' m grateful, its really the swimmers that do the job. It is your diving coach who does his job. Bob Colyer.

Coach Paul Mance Revives ASU Wrestling How to Succeed in Coaching by Neill CaldweU This year the Apps finished the regular season with a record of eight wins, nine losses, and one tie. One reason the grapplers did not have a winning season was the fact that three schools that ASU could have beaten (Ashland, Catawba, and Old Dominion) ' decUned ' to wrestle and cancled their respective matches. There were also several matches that Mance felt ASU could have won. The team is led by seniors Jim Polsinelli and Craig Cody. They are very much alike in many ways. They room together, they are from the same town (Rochester, NY), they went to the same junior college (Monroe), and they are both great wrestlers. Why, last season they even went to the Nationals together. This year they hope to make a return trip and maybe take along some teammates. Both Cody, 8 and 2 record this season, and Polsinelli, 8 and 2, have had a good final season. They work hard and give each match everything they have got. They have represented the University well and will be hard to replace next year. Another wrestler who has had an outstanding year is junior Ike Anderson, also a junior college transfer. Anderson had a record of 14 wins and 2 losses in the regular season matches. Supporting these three team members are Andre Massey, Billy Benfield, and Tom Lundsford, who all had good seasons. Freshmen with bright futures are Mike Brown and Herb Gibson. The Apps got their season off to a fine start with a fifth place finish in the Carolina Invitational Tournament. Anderson placed second in the 126 pound weight class. Jim Poliinelli won the SC tourney at (134). Jim was plagued with rib cartilage all season but worked it out match after match. Next came wins over The Citadel and N.C. A T. Then the Apps hit a slump with two losses to Georgia, a tie with Marshall, losses to East Carohna and VPI, and two cancellations. Only Cody, And erson, and PolsineUi were vinning their matches during this part of the season. After tough defeats at Chattanooga (39-6) and Middle Tennessee (25-14), the Apps put it all together as they romped past Maryville 44-3. ASU took out their frustrations as Lo Carmen and Steve Atwood won by pins. Hank Hardin, Anderson, PolsineUi, Massey, Gibson, Cody, and Lundsford all won by decisions. ASU followed that up with big wins over Furman and VMI. Winners against Furman were Butch Ross, Mitch Franklin, Tim Speight, Mark Tuccilo, Anderson, Gibson, Benfield, Atwood, and Jeff Stanley. The final score was 37-4. As the Apps beat the Keydets 35-6 Anderson and Benfield won by pins. Ross, Polsinelli, Gibson, Lundsford, Tim Fullum, and Stanley also were victorious. The final two regular season matches were both narrow losses, one to Virginia Commonwealth and one to Virginia Tech. While the team will miss Cody and PolsinelU they are looking to the future with much optimism. If Mance has another good recruiting year to fill in some depth problems, the Apps will be very powerful next year. Mance is confident of that. " Everyone this year has wrestled their hearts out, the entire team wants to get stronger and stronger. We will keep improving because of this reason. There are really some good things ahead of us.

But Not RIone The Rugby Team at ASU has had to struggle for recognition but now the tide is turning. While receiving no university support, the players pay their own way to compete in the North Carolina Rugby Union. The spirit of amateur athletics has formed these individuals into a squad whose " scrums, " " rucks " , and " backlines " are of punishing power and finesse. Rugby is a brutal undertaking of endurance and physical strength. Played over two, forty minute halfs, it exacts a price in pain. ASU ruggers compete in the same league with North Carolina, Wake Forest, Duke and Clemson, among others. The competition is fierce. It is said that in Rugby their are no winners, only survivors. So far the ASU Rugby team has survived, and by doing so have become victors. Dr. Clarke Directs Women ' s Sports. For many years the notion of women ' s athletic teams rarely attracted much attention outside of the players and coaches involved. The predominant view held by the male sports establishment was one of condescension, at best. As the woman athlete began to grow in numbers and exhibit skills thought unattainable by the " fair sex, " athletic directors everywhere became defensive and concerned over the possibihty of more programs to support. Indeed, recent court nilings are calling for a more equitable distribution of athletic monies between men ' s and women ' s teams. But isn ' t this only fair? In 1974, the athletic department of ASU appointed Dr. Judith Clarke, Assistant Athletic Director in charge of Women ' s Sports. Today there are eight teams competing against the best competition in the region: basketball, volleyball, tennis, golf, field hockey, gymnastics, swimming, and Softball. At the completion of the 1976 women ' s competitive schedule there was not a single losing record. Coach Clarke ' s basketball squad placed second in the state behind UNC, having appeared on television twice against the Tar Heels. Coach Bill Clinebell is one of the best known gymnastics coaches in the country. Toni Wyatt was the first women ' s coach hired primarily to direct an athletic squad (volley-ball), with classroom work being the other consideration. Scholarships, which were non-existant in 1974, are now available. However, Clarke asserts that ASU ' s Department of Physical Education is as much a recruiting factor as any scholarship the athlete might receive. Being a Division 1 member of the Association of Intercollegiate Women ' s Athletics also assures each athlete the best competition in the region. ASU is proud of this tine athletic program. Over two of the last three years our program has been awarded the June Galloway Sportsmanship Trophy, given annually to the school demonstrating the highest virtues of amateur athletics. This rise in prominence of our women athletes has given everyone associated with ASU something to be proud of. As spectator interest continues to grow, the athletes can begin to enjoy the greater sense of accomphshment they deserve. Squads Post Winning i lari€ Sports 191 Everyone Wants a Winner by Narda Harrison The best word to use in describing the 1977-78 season of ASU women ' s basketball is consistent. Finishing 10-10 and 5-5 in the NCAIAW, the Lady Apps ' games were usually marked by even, balanced performances. Comprised almost entirely of freshmen and sophomores, the Lady Apps were young, but lack of height and rebounding ability created more problems than did the lack of experience. Indeed, one of the team ' s strongest players was freshman sensation Donna Elrod. Moved from forward to guard, Elrod adapted well enough to become the leading scorer with an average of 17.6 points per game. With 173 rebounds, she was the second leading rebounder, while shooting 50% from the field. " She was definitely our high spot, " said Head Coach Judy Clarke. Center and team captain, Madehne Frosch, also played well for the Lady Apps. As the only senior on the team, Frosch, was the second leading scorer with 13.9 points per game. She totaled 258 rebounds, tops on the team, and she shot 48% from the field. " Madehne was especially strong at the end of the season, " said Clarke. Carol Abnond, a junior guard, contributed 150 assists and 12.1 points per game. " Carol was the team leader, " said Clarke, " She really hustled. " Coach Clarke was proud that these three players were chosen second team of the All -Division I of the NCAIAW. Clarke named sophomore forward Alison Hiltz as the Lady Apps ' most improved player. Hiltz was the fourth leading scorer with 10.7 points averaged per game. She totaled 149 rebounds as the third leading rebounder. Along with HUtz, Clarke noted sophomores Candis Loy, Evie Larrimore and Nina Foust for their hard work and valuable play. Clarke summed the season up by stating, " I feel the team improved throughout the year. We had a team that wanted to practice and do well. We improved on our main weakness -rebounding- and we became stronger where we were once weak. " Senior captain Madeline Frosch joined Almond and freshman sensation, Elrod, on the Division I-NCAIA W team. Frosch played well in the team ' s three win streak at season ' s end.

They struggled through a tough season in a large college conference, pitted against such powers as Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, and N.C. State. " Teams like those will always dominate us, " said Coach Toni Wyatt. The women started off with a hard charge in the clinic held in early September. They triumphed seven times out of ten, though the talley did not count in the regular season. Two losses to UNC-CH and ECU in the first tri-meet did noyhing to dampen team spirit, even with the loss of another Tarheel battle the next week. The season pushed on in much the same fashion with the Lady Apps usually sphtting their matches, in their favor with the small schools and against them with the larger schools. " We lacked the defense to beat teams like Duke, state champs last year, and High Point who was ninth in the nation, " Wyatt said. " We had the talent: we just needed more time to put it together. " In the Women ' s Invitational held Homecoming weekend, ASU managed to squeak out only one victory before being eliminated by East Tennessee. " It was hard to keep up spirits in the middle of a losing season, " said Wyatt, " but these kids did it. " In proof of that statement, the Apps plunged into the Georgia Tournament whole-heartedly, and eluded all but the University of South Carolina and Florida State to take third place overall. According to Coach Wyatt, whipping ETSU highlighted the entire tournament, since Tennessee had earlier won three matches against them by a very small margin. The state tournament was another major accomplishment. For the first time ever, the ladies made it to the second round. " I think we did well considering the type of season we had, " said Wyatt.

What will il be? Division l-a or Division l-aa NCAA Realignment Demands Careful Consideration During the last meeting of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), a proposal was brought forth from some of the nations massive college football institutions. These schools wanted out because they felt the NCAA recruiting and number of scholarship regulations were hampering their programs. In the past there had been no Hmit on the number of scholarships given each year or to the number of scholarships athletes one can have in any given year. The University of Texas is known to have had around 150 players on scholarship for football in one year. This proposal brought the NCAA into turmoil. Counter proposals led by William Mary and the Ivy League schools were voiced so that the smaller schools might have a chance to join the larger schools. Because the recruiting regulations have allowed the smaller schools to successfully compete against the larger schools to split would mean the smaller schools would return to their old predicament. However, the schools had tasted the sweetness of major college victory and were starved for more. The proposal by the big institutions called for eligibiUty fo be governed by these starting requirements: A) a football stadium with the seating capacity of 30,000; B) an average home attendance of 17,000 plus fans; and C) their schedule must consist of 60% Division 1 teams. The Ivy Leaque proposals would allow schools with 12 varsity sports to spht also. The big deciding vote comes in May of 1978. In March of ' 78 ASU ' s Faculty-Athletic Committee will decide the direction our school will take. For the smaller schools to move up would be prestigous. But do they have the resources for all of their sports to successfully compete against the better endowed schools? A momentous decision is in the making for the NCAA. To compete without a big bankroll is difficult these days and repercussions will be great on those schools taking the plunge. The majority of coaches feel as swimming Coach Ole Larson feels. Coach Larson says, " If you ' re going to compete in Division 1, then you wou ld like to have a shot at the top. " For our minor sports to be able to realistically compete with the powers who would be spHtting would take increased emphasis in these minor sports. And when you speak of emphasis you speak of money. Title Nine of the Equal Opportunities Act will require all schools to equally divide appropiations to sports that field a men ' s and a women ' s team. Money is becoming an omnipresent force in amateur athletics and if you don ' t have it, you make do. The question then is; Do we make the split, spend the dollars and field competent and competitive teams or do we make the spht and just make do? The future of ASU collegiate athletics is at hand. fifi They Rooted Just as Loud " Rdminimtpaiion ' deep-sixem ' Deep Souih Conference. by BETSY HUGGINS " It ' s been an up and down year, " said ASU women ' s field hocicey Coach Jan Watson. And truly it was, the season closing with the Lady Apps nursing a record of 9-3 . The team grabbed momentum early with an easy win over Clemson in a 12-0 one-sided contest. They continued a strong drive, and Coach Watson praised her team for their later well-played loss to Madison College. The women slipped a goal past Madison defense for the first The Mountaineer field hockey team stresses discipline and lots of practice. time in five years. Midway through the season, an administrafive decision forced the team to compete in the AIAW Championship, and in the Deep South Conference. Individual advancement, allowed in Deep South, was stifled in AIAW. Only the team as a whole could advance, or no one at all. The effect was a lag in morale, resulting in several disappointing defeats. One was a loss to High Point in the second round of the state tournament which eliminated ASU. " I was pleased with the way the girls held together. They played nice hockey. They didn ' t disgrace me, the school, or anyone, " Watson said. Watson felt that despite the four ties that should have been victories, a greater amount of skill was on the field this year than ever before. " Potentially it ' s the best team I ' ve ever had, " she said. " This was the nicest group of people I ' ve ever worked with. Everybody helped, out. The bench felt as much a part of the team as the starters did. They rooted just as loud. " 198 Sports 1 Melissa Miller storms downfield. Below: Cathy Mahaffey always seems to be where the action is.

ASU ' s Ski Team is not only a member of this conference, but has thoroughly dominated competition. This winter they outdistanced Tennessee, ■ ' ' Qemson, and Lees-McRae, among others. Oren Norris and Liz Sawyer led the squad which has been denied university support. The administration ' s rationale was that the sport was too dangerous. The more likely reason was the tight-fisted monetary policies maintained by the athletic director. ASU is one of the few institutions in the area that operates in the black, and the ski team ' s rejection is one reason why.

A graphics staff that has never put a newspaper together. Answer: Give them a deadline and put them to work on the Campus Crier. Sounds like a shaky way to run a college newspaper doesn ' t it? Surprisingly enough, with the backing of the Division of Complementary Education, it works. The first issue of The Campus Crier back in January 1976 evoked varied reactions. Skepticism was probably the first. The concept of a small, feature-oriented laboratory newspaper had failed at ASU several times before— why should this try be any different? As if pessimism wasn ' t enough to overcome, the new " baby " was misunderstood as well. While most people thought it was created to provide " competition for the Appalachian, " one professor (who obviously hadn ' t read it) went so far as to guess that it was " Some sort of underground newspaper. " Now, after two years of success. The Campus Crier is finally understood as neither of the above, it is a first-rate laboratory newspaper, compiled and designed entirely by students who are eager to learn about journalism by experiencing it. The staff consists of eight writers, one photographer, two graphics persons, and one editor, who have discovered that the most rewarding way to learn is to create. The Campus Crier is a positive and honest newspaper. It ' s positive because there are a lot of positive things to write about at Appalachian State University. It ' s honest because any staff member will proudly tell you that they have learned from their mistakes as well as their triumphs. It isn ' t easy working for what some people consider the underdog of newspapers on this campus, especially when friends come up to you and say, " Why don ' t you ' move up to ' The Appalachian? You ' re good enough. " " Thank you, " I politely reply, " but I think we ' re doing one heck of a fine job where we are.

It usually comes up while sitting around late at night at the dorm in your f reshm an year. Some wise guy suggests that you all go skiing, as you withdraw into a corner with visions of careening down a mountain and having a telephone pole jump into your path or of going over a hill and never being heard from again. So you casually allude to the fact that you have two term papers to finish, three books to read, and four tests the next day. Then your good friend who suggested the whole thing in the first place casually tells you that your ancestors were not of the human race but rather were a breed of fowl. All the others in the room then join in the sport started by the former until you give in hoping to see your good friend wrapped around a tree before it ' s all over. You retire after a couple of shots of Nyquil to find yourself in a dreamland filled with snow covered doom. Around five the next morning, you dream a rat is burrowing into your side. You roll over and see your roommate withdraw his hand from his diggings. You exclaim something about how amazing it is for dreams to predict the future and roll back over. Your roommate was never one to give up once he had something in his mind. So you get up, take a shower, don one hundred and forty pounds of clothing and go with all your friends to get a bite to eat. Someone mentions something about this being your last meal which somehow seems something less than humorous to you at the present time. After the meal all six of you pile into your roommate ' s Volkswagen to head for the slopes. There you are greeted by a dude in lavender skin-tight pants wearing orthepedic shoes who directs you to one of the numerous lines inside the ski lodge. All you do is groan. You get a pair of skis about the size of your foot, a pair of boots that look more like medieval devices of torture than shoes, and a pair of poles which you figure will be handy for knocking people out of the way before you hit them. Someone shows you the intricacies of adjusting your boots and bindings while relating to you stories of how people splinter their legs at the shin if the bindings are not adjusted just right. You thank him, start to leave when your good friend grabs you by the arm and pulls you outside. You put everything on and go to your lesson where you learn such neccessary and difficult things as how to fall. After many hours going up the tow rope and practicing what you learned in your lesson (expecially the falling part), you end the day thinking that it wasn ' t so bad. In fact, you ' d like to come back and investigate this wonderful sport some more. You make this fact know to your groaning companions while going back to the dorm. They answer by refering to your general mental health condition coupled with the fact that if you ' re coming back, it ' s without them. You simply laugh, and sit quiet, contented and happy. 240 Features Features 241 fl i 1 1 1 i B «BsX ■ A ltd:)!! driH I H m L b «« B L. i ► 1 MB 1 tm ,. - jg;-j« ■ 1 Opposite Page: Hang gliding - a graceful aiid intriguing sport.

The purpose is simple. The process is not so simple. They are bringing in developmental artists-musicians who have potential, who have shown they can produce quality music, and who are on their way to the top. It ' s an endless but fruitful search for Contemporary Programs to go after these artists, whose music is not " popular " music, but rather music which is a good display of an artist and his talent. In time, whenever and wherever " Contemporary Programs " puts on a show, you can be assured that the music is quality entertainment. A ticket bought is an investment in an artist who will be big one day rather than a gamble and money down the drain. As diverse as the musical tastes are across the campus, " Contemporary Programs " is structured to accomodate the many tastes. There is music for everybody --from country, to rock, to jazz, to soul. Contemporary Programs is made up of students, staff, and administrators. Each individual in the group is a vital element and an expert in the area he or she covers. The students involved are senators. Not only are they musically knowledgable, but they are also members of the most representative body of students on campus. Therefore, they know music, and they know what students want to hear. So when you hear " Contemporary Programs " is putting on a show whether it ' s in " Our House, " Farthing Auditorium, or Varsity Gym, you ' ll know it ' s a show you can ' t miss. Music is as old as the wheel. It was one of man ' s first inventions to fill one of his basic needs-the need to create. Music has always been one of the most popular types of entertainment on our campus. In the not-too-distant past, we ' ve had such groups as " America, " " Greg Allman, " " Linda Rondsadt, " " Jimmy Buffet, " " Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, " and " Billy Joel " appear here at ASU. Not bad names, not bad talent. Each year a special committee is responsible to bring musical talent to the campus. Many of the names of the past committees are forgotten and obscure to most of us now. The more familiar " Popular Programs " and the newly established " Contemporary Programs " are our most recent music committees. " Popular Programs " in its younger days was responsible for bringing in the " big " names. Later, Popular Programs, facing common problems throughout the college music business, such as low budgets, spiraling costs of top groups, and small halls versus large percentage gates, could no longer produce talent as it had in the past. The last nail in Popular Programs ' coffin was to cater to, as its title indicates, popular music-music which is here one minute and gone the next. Top names in popular music are as changeable and unpredictable as the tides. The present " Contemporary Programs " is a vague term to many.

Why not join the growing number of students at ASU who are reaping the rewards of the Cultural Affairs Office? 1 H » iaB ■ K ' ' ' w i l ET -d P i m Sure, you think, why do I want to spend my time listening to some lecture about the formation of igneous rocks or stru ggling through a classical sonata? According to Rogers Whitener, director of the Cultural Affairs office, you might just find out that you enjoy it. In a somewhat informal chat with Whitener he discussed the Cultural Affairs office— it ' s function, it ' s growth, it ' s accomplishments and future expectations. " As a division of the Department of Complementary Education, Cultural Affairs is simply a complemant to the academic program at ASU. It is an experience beyond the bounds of the classroom by way of public lectures and fine arts programs. Whitener an associate professor of English, became the director after the office was formed about six years ago. Since that time, he has seen a growth of interest in the program. " Interest in Cultural Affairs has grown by leaps and bounds, " Whitener said. " In the past three years, it has really come a long way. There has been extensive interest — we ' ve sold over four hundred dollars in season tickets to the Artist and Lecture Series in Farthing. And we ' ve had more student members than in previous years. " " I think it (the interest) has to do, on the one hand, with the fact that our student body is mature and having more cultural experience in public school Ufe. Secondly, I think it has to do with a concerted effort on the part of the Complementary Education Departmen to stress Cultural Affairs. " Whitener explained that the Cultural Affairs program consisted of a number of types of programs. Included in these are the major Fine Arts program, the Chamber series, securing major and minor speakers and performers, dance troupes, and a variety of musical interests, such as jazz, classical and folk. " What we try to do in the fine arts and lecture series is to schedule some programs of a general nature. " sure-fire " programs that will attract a crowd. The mini-lecture series supports speakers who represent a select group, such as securing a noted geologist to speak for geology majors or those interested in One aspect that Whitener said he finds advantageous, but not practiced enough, is keeping visiting artists and lecturers on campus for a few days. One major thing I would like to do is to find the facilities and money to bring professional groups on campus for an extended period of time, so they can give master classes and informal talks, " Whitener said. Another student advantage of the program is the chances for involvement on the students part with the professional groups. " We ' ve had students working as technicians for some of the productions, " Whitener explained. " That way, they get to see both sides of the performance. They have first hand experience with the performers and professional technicians. One goal Whitener would like to see fulfilled is a " bring-it-to-the-people " ' type of program. " I ' d like to see the cultural program taken to the people, " Whitenersaid. " Instead of the programs being held in formal settings all the time, I would like to see them being held, on the mall, in front of the cafeteria, in the classrooms, things hke that. Just something so people can be a part of something without having to go to a building. " Whitener is also trying to secure a permanent art collection for the school. He explained that a collection has already been started from purchases made of paintings entered in the National Drawing contest held on this campus. Whitner said he feels the program will continue to grow in future years and benefit more people. " We ' ve set our cultural goals high here and I think well reach them.

The liighlight of the year for the association was Black Heritage week, which brought noted black poetess Nikki Giovanni to Farthing Auditorium. A semi-formal Cultural Awareness Ball, an art exhibit and a cultural artifacts exhibit were also held. The liiglilight of the week was the Cultural Awareness Pageant.

It ' s 12 o ' clock, but you know if you ' re lucky that you ' ll barely have time to make it to your 1 o ' clock English class. Forcing your way into the crowded cafeteria, you take your place in a long line that is slowly winding its way out the doors. After 20 minutes, you finally reach the serving line. Maybe, you think, just maybe they ' ll have something different to- day. But a quick glance proves dif- ferent and you automatically ask for " Mystery meat— I mean, Uh — hamburger patty, mashed potatoes- no, no gravy— and squash, please " ; the same thing you eat every Wednesday. After five more minutes in the check-out line, you try to juggle your tray, books and coat, searching for your mealbook. That done, you wind your way through the lunchroom, looking for a table. Four collisions with the tray cart and 10 minutes later, you find a table loaded with dirty trays and cigarette butts. Pushing them out of the way, you glance at the clock and realize you only have 15 minutes before you have to leave for class. Oh well, bottoms up... Three weeks left in the semester and you ' re broke. You ' ve just finished up your last mealbook and you don ' t know what you ' ll do until the end of the semester. You ' ve got a mealbook left from last year, but it can ' t be used. Why can ' t we have mealcards like other universities? You wonder. Or why can ' t we have $5— and — $10 mealbooks to buy at the end of the semester? Anything would be better than this, you think, as you sink your teeth into another peanut butter cracker... Needless to say, the two accounts above are somewhat an exaggeration of the truth. But according to nine ASU students, the problems men- tioned are not that far from reality. Lee Mashburn, a 19-year-old sophomore, says he eats in the cafe- teria everyday, two meals-a-day. " I think the food is terrible! " " I ' m tired of having the same thing everyday— fish, chicken, meat- loaf, ham. And I think they try to fix the food too fast (in order to feed all the people). Maybe the food would be better if those ladies who serve the food would put a smile on their faces. A lot of them just throw the food on your plate and then shove it at you. They could be a little more friendly. " Eighteen-year-old Keith Sprinkle, a freshman, was sitting with Lee and agreed that a wider variety of food choices was needed. " It is a bit repetitious, but I don ' t guess they could come up with too many exotic dishes. " " I usually eat here in the cafe- teria, " he said. " I ' ve eaten in the other places, though. The Gold Room ' s okay, but I can ' t think of any clean terms to describe the B.I. It ' s the pits. There is some graffiti on a bathroom door in Justice that says ' Flush twice— it ' s a long way to the B.I. ' I believe it! " Lee and Keith both feel the crowds are a problem. " People sit around in here and shoot the bull more than they eat, " Keith said. " It causes a problem for people who are trying to find a table. " Rick " J.D. " Miller is another stu- dent who thinks variety is a prob- lem. " It (the selection) could be better because every week they have the same thing— I ' ve seen that, " he said. " You can eat something on Tuesday and go back the next Tuesday and they have the same thing. " I think the prices are high, " he continued, " but so is everything else. If you think about it, we ' re fortu- nate to have a cafeteria— some colleges don ' t even have one. " Rick also favors a mealcard policy. " Other major North Carolina universities have them and they work; I think we can do it, too. " " Repetition? They don ' t know what variety is down here, " said a 20-year-old junior girl who asked to remain anonymous. " I eat down here because it ' s faster than the cafeteria and cheaper than the Gold Room. But I won ' t touch any of the hot foods-they ' re nothing but grease. The cold sandwiches are pretty good, but that ' s it. " " The food ' s expensive, but what other choice does an on-campus stu- dent have? " " I ' ve been eating this stuff for over two years now and I still can ' t get used to it! " Junior Rick Gilliam, 20, said he feels " the food has gotten worse since I was a freshman. The variety, well, there is no variety. And when they surprise you and put a new item out that ' s good, you won ' t see it again for two months. " Asked if he ever ate in the Gold Room, Rick said he didn ' t because " I can never afford it. The B.L? No way! I can ' t stand to eat there. " Rick favors a mealcard plan, but 270 Features also offers a suggestion for the meal- book system. " Mealbooks should never run out— we should be able to use them from year to year. " Another student, who couldn ' t be persuaded to give his name, also favored mealbooks that wouldn ' t be- come invalid after a year. " I think we should be able to use mealbooks no matter when we got them. It ' s just not fair to have SIO left in a mealbook at the end of the year and have to throw it away. " This student said he eats regularly at the Gold Room. " The food is just as good, if not better, than most places around Boone. I don ' t mind paying a little extra if it means not having to eat in the cafe- teria or B.I. " There were other students who felt the food wasn ' t bad at ASU. Debbie Poplin and Shelley AUen, both freshman, said they are pretty satisfied with the food. " It ' s not bad, " Debbie said. " I usually eat lunch in the cafeteria and dinner in the B.I. Sometimes the B.I. has the same thing over and over, but I really don ' t mind. " Shelley agrees with Debbie. " I think it ' s pretty good, " she said. " It ' s better than most cafeteria food. And I like our mealbook system. " Sarah Lane, also a freshman, was sitting with Debbie and Shelley. She agrees that the cafeteria food is good, but has her doubts about the B.I. " I don ' t think the food ' s cooked right. I ' ve eaten there once and I got sick. I haven ' t been back!

Although they can ' t do much about the weather or the flu, administrators plan to centralize the Support Services so that only one trip is necessary to get all those chores done. Construction of the Student Support Facility wUl begin in the fall of 1978. At a cost of two million dollars, the new building will house the Infirmary, Psychological Services, and the Post Office.

Plans for the improved infirmary include four physicians ' offices, eight examination rooms, a laboratory, an X-ray room, a pharmacy, and a physical therapy room. The large in-patient services area will feature a number of bedrooms and a day lounge with a television and study carrels. Psychological Services will occupy 5,720 square feet of the new building. It will include a large counseling area, complexes for group and individual training, and a testing complex. The Postal Services center will have twelve thousand mailboxes as well as a large service window and a sorting area. The estimated size of the postal complex is 10,250 square feet.

Features 277 Looking Toward Tommorrow ASU Freshmen by Donna Davis and Tom Patrick Is today ' s freshman more intelligent than years past? Is he more mature? In politics, is he conservative or liberal? Throughout the seventies ASU has been appealing to a larger number of high school graduates. This year Dr. Robert E. Reiman, Professor of Geography and Coordinator for the universities Long Range Planning and Learning Resources department compiled a lengthy statistical profile of ASU ' s recent freshmen classes. Dr. Reiman ' s report is so thorough that with a quick reference you can learn what percent of the men can bake a cake from scratch, or type 40 words a minute. Over the last three years admissions to the freshmen class have been limited to 1700 students. Each year the number of applications has numbered over 4000. Naturally the requirements have been stiffened and one would assume a more intelligent student body is evolving. Seventy-five percent of our most recent freshmen class finished in the top fifth of their senior classes. If SAT scores are any indication of academic excellence, then ASU can be sure of qualified students. More freshmen than ever, (18%), plan to reach the Masters level. The academic programs have become the rriain attraction, with skiing and sightseeing following in the distance. Today ' s freshman not only possesses a refined grade school record but comes from our society ' s more affluent strata. Combined parental income averages $20,000 a year and parents of 48 students are presidents of savings and loan businesses. It ' s no coincidence that ASU leads the state in banker ' s training. The parents of today ' s freshmen are more educated as well. This is a national trend as our society becomes more scholarly every year. The pursuit of the college degree is encouraged by parents who possess degrees themselves. The poUtical stance of today ' s freshman is markedly conservative when compared with his counterparts of the early seventies. Today ' s freshman is not out to buck the system, but to become a contributing factor within it. Once enrolled at ASU, you can throw away the statistics. The newcomer is ready to embark upon the Mountaineer experience. The academic exposure is becoming richer each semester. The recreational opportunities of the mountains are endless and the campus facilities are expanding to meet a greater need. All the pitfalls await today ' s freshmen as they have done in years past, and time will tell who is going to reach the high ground. At ASU, the climb is steep with plenty of opportunities to grow and develop, but each one faces an ascent into maturation. 278 Features i ' icfee -.v,. .,t ' : " - ' ' , Features 279 Big Brother They are Appalachia ' s " forgotten children " — the children of widows, alcoholics, welfare recipients, the children of broken homes. Nobody pays them much attention or gives them much thought on an increasingly conservative campus where conversations center more around test answers or " the Rock " than the needs of deprived children. Understandably so, but . . . Some ASU students have not forgotten these kids, and each semester they put in free time to let them know somebody cares. Their time and help are channeled through a seven-year-program known as Big Brother-Big Sister headed by Debbie Dorsey and Jane Delance Funded through Student Affairs, the Big Brother-Big Sister Program is a perfect outlet for students " who just love little kids, " says Jane Delance assistant program coordinator. The Big Brother (Sister)-Little Brother (Sister) relationship is friendship. Although each friendship is unique, as each individual is unique, there are some factors common to each adult and child relationship. A Big Brother or Big Sister is not expected to be a psychiatrist, social worker, or counselor. As a Big Brother, you can make the biggest contribution by simply being an engaging and pleasant companion for your Little Brother (Little Sister.) It works down to this: you must care. Caring is the keystone to working with children. " A child needs an adult that he can admire, an adult who speaks his language, and who can guide him— in a meaningful, positive way along the paths he encounters in his daily journey to adulthood. " That is what Big Brother-Big Sister is all about. There are no economical, educational, or marital qualifications to be a Big Brother (Big Sister.) The volunteer is asked only to give the precious commodity of time. Time a - Big Sister parent would offer his child to make him truly feel he is wanted, is cared for, and loved. Taking a child out for a ride, out for a coke, bowling, or to a ball game might seem insignificant, but for a child from a one parent home, it is the beginning of an entirely new Ufe. The children are referred to ASU ' s program from area social service agencies, schools or the parents themselves. The students are simply volunteers who are trying to help out. They get nothing for their efforts except a sense of satisfaction. " This year we have had forty really good matches, " says Delance, " last year we had a lot more, but we wanted it smaller this year so we could watch them closely to make sure the matches were excellent and they are. " Students who get " matched " with little brother or sister are taking on delineated responsibihties. They must be willing to stay with it for at least two semesters and spend a minimum of two hours per week with the child. How they spend that time is up to them. One student took his little brother fishing while others will go ice skating or to a movie. " It depends a lot on what the kid likes to do, " says Delance. " A lot of area movie theaters, the ice skating rink and the roller skating rink issue special I.D. ' s to let the kid in free. " In addition to those kinds of weekly activities, the Big Brother-Big Sister organization holds a Christmas party for all the children and buys them toys. Around Easter, they try to have another party or Easter egg hunt. More important than the gifts or movies, though, is the relationship that evolves. " We have a lot of people who stay with it two, three, and four years, " says Delance, who has a ' little sister ' herself. " Most of all, they like kids and feel like they are doing something to help an individual child. " " We all just love kids and want to help in some way.

Program Director Jack Pennington explains that " more things have been tried. " Wazoo received national acclaim for its charity work for abandoned senior citizen Martha Adams, collecting 11500 in around-the-clock radio-thons. Late movies at the Flick raised money to help fund the Boone Rescue Squad, the ASU Jazz Ensemble, the Watauga High School Band, and The United Way. More than ever Wazoo has catered to student listeners. The staff has designed a program wherein Top 40 is played in the mornings, and progressive music is aired in the evenings. In order to meet such varied musical tastes found on a college campus, Wazoo continued the increasingly popular evening show, " Jazz Waves, " from last year. For classical buffs, Wazoo received exclusive rights to tapes of the Chicago Symphony. News coverage of the ASU campus has been expanded to keep up with the rapidly changing university and Boone. Sports got a face-lift with Mountaineer Countdown and Locker room Scoreboard. Satirical radio soap operas were added to Wazoo ' s program in the Spring. Coming up in Wazoo ' s future are $25,000 worth of new equipment including a powerful transmitter and stereo reception. The new Art and Communication Arts building situated next to Farthing Auditorium provided Wazoo with twice the space of its former location in Chapell-Wilson . Pennington says, " We now have a lot more room to move around in; we were cramped in Chapel-Wilson, and now we ' re closer to the Communication Department. " With the more spacious accommodations, the needed space will be available for the new equipment.

Up until that time, we had taken just about everybody that was eligible.

But a series of events, particularly a distaste of Accounting II brought me to Workman Hall, where creative writing replaced balance sheets and bar graphs. Needless to say, the " Workman " experience has changed my life. The yearbook editor is given tremendous freedom in the design and content of the annual. Each year a new editor is free to impart his or her notions upon a new book. By necessity it must change. A constant blending of old and new ideas assure the organic character of the college annual. Primarily, it is a book of records, clubs, and faces, but it is the challenge of every yearbook staff to provide more. I urge you, the interested, to explore the many opportunities offered by Co-Curricular Programs at ASU. The challenge of the yearbook could be for you. Whatever you choose, be grateful that you ' re a part of Appalachian State. We ' re getting better all the time. 3.?. f axM Contributing Writers: Rick Layton (SID), Nita Sealey, Nick McAlister, Sherri Williams, Dave Cook.
