Horns Gerald Gdgor Arkansas Tech University Russellville, flrkonsos 72801 mmmrn FROM START TO FINISH L From start to finish is the way we set out to record the year. But uue chose to do more than just record it. uue uuant people to Feel the year as they reod through the pages of this book. Our theme is the story of the Tortoise and the Hare except in college, uue feel that you have to be a fast rabbit from start to finish. Many of us felt like we ' re on a merry-go-round ond can ' t get off until the end of the year. UJe can ' t be slow like the Tortoise at any- time, even if he ' s a steady slow. In order to survive ot college, one must be o steady fast rabbit from the beginning of the year to the end. U Je had to be rabbits to capture the year in this book also. There was always something going on. Tech has over sixty organizations and all of them are active with plays, parties, dances, and even songfests. fit times we had to scramble to get to them all. The 1981 RGRICOLfl takes a look at all the events which moke the year special. UJe have sixteen color pages for you to enjoy on subjects from entertainment to the Governor. This introduction is a hodge- podge of pictures around Tech. It focuses on no particular event but rather is a smorgasbord of life at Tech. UJe have used the introduc- tion to tantalize your senses and leave you wanting more, find there is much, much more. Our student life section de- scribes how students live, what they feel, and how they spent their time. UJe ' ve also added an in- formative story on Tech ' s " roots " - how we got to where we are todoy. UUith this story we want to show students how far they ' ve come and how much farther we can go. UJe ' ve also added a Na- tional and State feature. UJe cap- tured the Presidential and guber- natorial elections. UJe also gave you a taste of the events which headlined the news in 1980. In student life we take a look at Caraway ' s Ghost in an article ti- tled, " Is Caraway Hall really launted? " Academics section has all of (cone, on poge 5) I 2 Introduction Toble of Contents Student Life 12 This is the section thot really concentrates on the students ot Tech.

The honors section holds all the Who ' s Who people. Forty-five students were chosen for Who ' s Who. Honors also holds gradua- tion because anyone who goes through four years of college knows what an honor it is to graduate. Activities is a record of oil the good times we had this year. Our annual Greek Week and Sadie Hawkins week are in here with pictures of the tobacco spitting and pole climbing contests. Our dances are in here also. There ' s two pages of the Oueen of Hearts dance and of course we didn ' t forget the Military Ball. Our People section holds more than just pictures of our students. We ' ve added profiles and stories highlighting the year. Our story on parking, " Watching the submarine races " is especially informative. The Greek section tells what happened with all the fraternities and sororities this year. From Delta Zeta ' s to Theto Chi ' s, they ' re all here. Sports highlights the Golden Sun ' s spectacular season as well as our Wonder Boys. Our new soccer team is here and we ' ve added a special new section, Stu- dent Sports. These pages capture the sports of the athletes as well as you and I. Our last section contains all of Tech ' s organizations. Their pic- tures are here and we ' ve also odded stories on their activities during this year. From start to finish, the 1981 RGRICOLR takes a look at the year from the triumph of the Gol- den Sun ' s to the guiet times we spent with our friends. It ' s all within the pages of book — the magic of the ; 980 year at Tech. Introdu :tic College is our u way of life Some Tech students find they have some theatrical talent; others find they would rather participate in the war games of the ROTC. m m f £a Tech ' s campus, as partially shown is this aerial view, is very spacious and beautiful, but it is the students which really make Tech special. 6 Introduction ifjgfjMfl Il ' a ' ' ' f ill • Jl In :-■ When uue oil came to this school uue planned to get on education, but as uue go through school uue begin to realize that uue ' re getting so much more: college isn ' t just o school, it ' s q uuay of life! For many of us. it uuas the first time we had to share our room uuith someone else. It uuas a strange experience. It takes o lot of patience and real effort on both ports to live uuith a roommate. But gradually, you begin to get used to it ond usually enjoy it. It ' s good to have someone to talk over oil of the neuu experiences uue ' re hav- ing. UJe learned that in some uuays your college roommate is closer than your sister. She begins to knouu uuhen you ' re unhappy, uuhen you ' ve been stood up. she shares your teors. and uuhen you get on fl on the test you ' ve studied so hord ' for, she ' s proud of you. In the dorm, there ' s aluuays someone to share your happy times as uuell as your bod. It ' s so handy to have someone uuith a popcorn popper living douun the hall or someone to go get o pizza uuithin o moment ' s notice. ULIe begon to share our experiences uuith one another and uue learned an important lesson, houu to relate to other people. Some of us learned another lesson, .uue learned that some- times you hove to fight for uuhat you believe in. That uuorking hard for something only mokes it more precious uuhen uue finally get it. Many of us hod to uuork hard to stoy in school ond at times uue uuould stop ond think, " Is it uuorth all this studying, oil this money?- ' - ' For a feuu of us, the ansuuer uuas no. But most of us soid, " Yes! It ' s uuorth it to me. I ' ll uuork harder if I have to, I ' ll study more, but this is o greot time in my life and it ' s uuorth It! (tont. on poo. °) Introduction The lake is a popular recreation spot for Tech students, as well as many area residents. Rhonda Sullins is Arkansas Tech ' s 1980 Homecoming Queen. She was also second runner-up in the Miss Tech pageant. Arkansas Tech University combines a higher educa- tion with recreation and fun. Russellville has parades. Tucker Coliseum has basketball games and Tech has Greek Week tug of war. 8 Introduction The Crabaugh building is one of the beautiful build- ings located on the Tech campus. Our uuqy oP life (cont- from page 6) UUe learn so much in our college years. In our classes we learned our facts, but out of class we learned about the world. LUe began to look ot our classes not as something we had to go to but as o new experience. In our geog- raphy class we learned where Russia wos but for the first time something clicked and we realized what Russia meant and why it was important for us to know where it was and what it exported. UUe went to Oiology class and learned about life but we now un- derstood how precious it was and how easily it was lost. UUe learned about war from our history books and we suddenly knew the fear of war present. UUe wondered what ujo would do if we were drafted. UUould we go? UUould we protest? UUe learned more at college than we ever dreamed. For mony of us we learned that there were ways of living other than the way we ' d always lived. That there were people with backgrounds different from ours and we liked them. UUe learned that just be- cause someone close to us was a bigot, we didn ' t have to be. LUe could chose our own friends and go our own way. UUe stopped try- ing to fit in with the crowd and realized that it was good to be an individual, it just made the world better. (cont. o page JO) Dr. Kenneth Kersh, president of Arkansas Tech Uni- versity, takes a stroll around the campus. Introduction 9 Our way of life (co nt from page 9) UUe olso learned thot we could listen to other people ' s beliefs without losing our own. UUe real- ized we didn ' t hove to yell the loudest to be heard. UUe learned to listen to both sides of on issue and then to take a stand. For many of us, it was a new experience to discuss current issues with our friends or to talk about God without being embar- rassed. College is o time in our lives for us to try out our wings. UJe ' re in- dependent for the first time, fit times it wos scarey having to make a decision which would affect our entire life, but with each decision we made, our wings became stronger and we flew straighten Once in a while we crashed and rushed back to the nest but soon we ' d get over our mistake and we ' d be flying once more. UUe sometimes marvelled that our parents were so dumb in our teens had suddenly grown wiser and were willing to stand behind any decision we made. UUe grew clos- er to them than ever before and yet we were independent. College is a time when we set aside our parent ' s morals and val- ues and pick our own. Many times they are the same but often they are different. They are not neces- sarily better, but they are our own. They are the values we must live with as we go through life. College is also a time to stop and think, " UJhat do I wont to do with my life? UJhat direction do I want to go? Do I believe in abor- tion, my country, the constitution? " It ' s a time to find who you are and where you want to go. It ' s a won- derful time of continuous discovery of the world and yourself. It ' s like no other time in your life. It ' s pri- vate and personal and yours to do what you wish. It ' s your life. It ' s your way of life. It ' s " college.

Introduction If Student Life campus I dorm life I entertainment t | table of contents 4 introduction Student life 13 Long lines and complaints mark fall registration Each student is assigned a teacher from their field to follow the student ' s years through college They must approve student ' s schedules at registration Students register by the first three letters of their last name. Here students wait for their scheduled time to come so they can be let in to register " I can ' t believe these lines! " was the phrase heard by students waiting to register for classes. Lines were longer than ever be- fore, at times winding through the student center, around the post office and out the doors onto the sidewalk. It wasn ' t at all unusual for a student to spend two hours or more in registration. This was due to classes being cancelled and having to wait for counselors to approve the student ' s schedule. Pat Huckeby, a junior journalism major said, " It ' s so frustrating to have all your classes figured out and then walk in to regis- tration to find they ' re all cancelled and you have to start all over. " Students register according to the first three letters of their last name. The schedule is then switched every semester so that everyone has an equal opportunity to regis- ter first. For example someone who ' s last name starts with HAR who registers in the fall at 11:00 on the second day might register in the spring at 1:00 on the first day. The only possible way to beat registration is to have about nine alternate classes ready. It seems that long lines are just the price that has to be paid for Tech ' s student population growth. HiStudent life Registration is set up in stations from " data card check " to " post office box rental . " Students may skip any stations which do not apply to them The next stop after registration is the bookstore Books are No matter how many possible schedules a student has listed by the general sub,ect (Philosophy, Math, etc ) and worked out, he can almost always count on some of his the specific class number (Ideas and Values II. 3023 ) planned classes being filled and cancelled Registration 15 Along the beaten path By Dana Dodd For the students, faculty, and administra- tion, there are places on the ATU campus that are visited almost daily. A beaten path is formed. After registration and classification, one of the first places students go is the Student Center to relax and take a quick break be- fore resuming the grinding schedule of be- ginning yet another semester of classes. The next stop is the ATU Post Office, located directly outside the W. O. Young Student Center recreation area. Here, on campus students receive mail and send let- ters. Located just off the Post Office is the A.T.U. Bookstore which provides text- books and various other supplies needed by Tech students and faculty. When information and a study place is needed the Tomlinson Library provides a quiet atmosphere and a helpful staff for A.T.U. students and the surrounding community. The Student Health Center located be- hind Bryan Hall, is staffed by Nurse Janette Wilson who is there to help everyone on the Arkansas Tech campus. When hunger strikes Tech, the majority of students go to Chambers Cafeteria for most of their meals. Another stopping place for over half of the enrolled A.T.U. students is the Finan- cial Aid Office, located in the Student Cen- ter. Here, these students receive the finan- cial aid they need. The last stop on the beaten path is the Student Development Center, located in Suite 124 of the Crabaugh Building. The Center provides services that help students decide on an area of study and on career placement after graduation. Throughout the next fifteen pages is an individual focus on the above mentioned places that form the beaten path. Rhonda Riker admires one of the little extras the Book store carries In the Post Office, on-campus students receive their mai and send letters. After registration, one of the first places a student goes is the Student Center to relax and take a quick break The recreation center provides several pinball machine: for those who wish to try their luck. Another bonus the recreation center has for Tech students is pool tables. . Student Center The W. O. Young Student Center is, for most Arkansas loch students, the center of college life. It serves as the social hub of the campus, a place to get mail and need- ed supplies, and a place to eat or relax Centrally located directly across from Chambers Cafeteria and right behind the Administration Building, the Student Center is within walking distance from anywhere on campus. The Center houses several " depart ments " that are important facets to the students of Tech. These areas include: a recreation center which provides pinball machines and pool tables; a snack bar and grill; a trophy case; a ballroom; the A.T.U. Post Office and Bookstore; and the Finan- cial Aid Office. The VV. O. Young Student Center serves the Tech community by opening the doors of the ballroom to the public for any approved activities. In the past, the Stu- dent Center Ballroom has been used for blood drives, dances, plays, concerts, public speeches and meetings, several Parent ' s Day displays, the Phi Mu Carni- val, and a host of other events and ac- tivities. Several changes to the Student Center are in the process of being established. A 6V2 foot television, along with new Center hours to accommodate the use of the T. V. are just two of the many changes being considered. Steve Lawrence, Program Coordinator, performs the job of keeping the Center in smooth working order. Centrally located, the W O Young Student Center serves as the social hub of the campus.

Whether a student lives on or off campus, he will at one time or other go into the post office to pick up mail, mail a letter, or read the announcements on the bulletin board. The post office window is open Mon- day through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10:55 a.m. and from noon until 3 p.m. On Saturdays, the window is open from 8 until 10 a.m. Anyone who wishes a letter to go out the same day of mailing must mail the letter before 4 p.m. Otherwise, the letter will be sent with the next day ' s shipment. According to Mary Sue Bowden, post- mistress, the post office processes enough mail for approximately two to three thou- sand people daily. This process not only includes the mail delivered to the 1408 separate boxes in the post office, but also the mail delivered to each department, building and the various clubs. k« I •1 t ar; Ron Harkins asks Jamae Brown if she happened to pick up his new magazine tor him Most Tech students have a post office box This year students have had to double the occupancy of the boxes- Timi Harp and Gail Caulk check their box. 18 Student life ■ . BJ i (i t y i M " Mail, you ' ve got mail? Nobody writes me! r Letters, especially it they are from home, generate enthusiasm tor those lucky enough to receive one by Kristi Voelkerding On any given day if you take the time to stop in at the post office you will find multitudes of students hanging around just waiting for the mail to be unloaded. This is not one of the most exciting ac- tivities on campus, in fact it compares to going down to Safeway to watch them unload the produce off the trucks! Most students come into the post office with their faces lull of hope. If they are rewarded by receiving a letter that day von will usually be informed by the shrieks of, " I ' ve got mail, I ' ve got mail. " On the other hand those students who do not receive mail can ususally be spotted by the long faces and occasionally the floods of tears streaming off their faces. It is a truly pitiful sight to see a big, strong football player reduced to a snivilingbaby because his mother didn ' t write to tell him hello. It is difficult for those of us who do not receive mail to walk by all those rows of boxes with ten or twelve letters stuffed inside. I figure these people are either putting their used envelopes back into their boxes or they ' ve got names on every mailing list throughout the country I bet the people in the post office have to get a crowbar to get the letters wedged into the boxes of these people. My box has been opened very few times since I ' ve been here. In fact, it ' s getting dusty in there. Some green mold has started along one wall and the spiders have found it to be an ideal place to build a web, especially because they won ' t be disturbed. Have you noticed how some people go to the trouble of opening their boxes up to check and make sure there is nothing in- side? It might be stuck to one side, or the light causes a glare on the glass. At least they keep in the practice of getting into their box in case one day they do get mail But it ' s no wonder that our parents won ' t write to us when every letter we write home starts the same old way, " Dear Mom, How are you? I am fine. Please send money. " If anyone asked me for money in every letter they wrote I sure wouldn ' t want to write back. Of course, it is not often that I find any money in my mail. 1 have learned though that if you buy certain things you can get a rebate on them and this is like getting money in the mail. I ' m talking big bucks, like two or three dollars. Whatever happened to those parents who used to write us daily when we went off to camp for a week? They didn ' t want us to get homesick so they started writing letters the week before we left so we ' d have some mail when we got there. Now we can ' t even get one or two a month I ' ve figured out a sure system for get- ting my parents back for not writing, I call collect! It costs them four times as much and although I don ' t get any money out of it at least 1 can hear about all those long lost relatives that I never knew existed. But, I ' ll still keep checking ray mail every day or two. If I keep it up I ' ll soon have my name on a few mailing lists. Then I ' ll sit back and watch the stuff come rolling in.

Roger Oakley finds something in his size. ATU ' s bookstore carries any item they think a student could use In addition to the usual items, they also stock popcorn and marshmallows. backpacks and paint Virtually every student goes to the ATU Bookstore where required books and other supplies are bought for classes. Mr. Ron Parks, bookstore manager, when asked why books were so expensive said that inflation was attributed to the problem. " Publishers control the prices and paper shortages also contribute to the problem. Ev- erything is expensive and books are no ex- ception, " said Parks. He also said that prices for books bought back by the bookstore are set by an industry standard. The student gets one half of his money back, according to the cost of the book. Used books have market guidelines also. The student receives one- third to one-fourth of the original book price back. The bookstore carries many other supplies besides textbooks and class materials. Im- printed clothing, sundries, general reading best sellers, and other general supplies are offered for the student.

" We are a university owned bookstore here to serve the needs of the students and the faculty. " Joining Mr. Parks in the bookstore are Johnny Sue Burke, Bookstore Secretary; Jan Enms, Bookstore Clerk and Stenographer; Wanda Heflin, Clerk; and several Tech stu- dents from the work-study program. The Tech bookstore is open the year round, except from December 21st to January 2nd or 3rd. Year after year, Mr. Parks and his staff work hard to provide the best supplies and materials needed by the ATU students and faculty.

Along the beaten path . . . library Another facility along the beaten path is the Tomlinson Library. Upon entering the library, you may feel as though it is like any other library. The many heads bent over books and homework and the pressing silence ap- parent. Yet, Tomlinson Library has much more to offer. Tomlinson Library boasts a staff that consists of five trained librarians, six full time staff members and twenty student workers who are all dedicated to running the library for the students, faculty, and the community. One of the ways in which the library is able to help is by the use of approximately one hundred and fifty-four thousand books. Included are books arranged in the Dewey decimal system along with ap- proximately one thousand volumes of ref- erence material. The library has acquired three hundred and eleven thousand pieces of microfiche and nineteen thousand reels of microfil m. Tomlinson Library also subscribes to ap- proximately one thousand periodicals. The Tech library also belongs to ERIC. (Educational Resources Informa- tion Center). Membership in this organi- zation enables the library to receive thou- sands of microfilm sheets each year. On these sheets is anything remotely as- sociated with education " The Multimedia Orientation Pro- grams " is a new service for ATU students.

" One of the ways in which the library is able to help is by the use of approximately one-hundred and fifty-four thousand books. " The program consists of four tapes that explain to the listener the card catalog, a brief orientation of the library and the ERIC, series. The library is also responsible for send- ing overdue notices to anyone with an overdue book. The staff believes that everyone should have an equal chance to use the materials offered. Fines are simply to discourage people from keeping mate- rial too long. The library does not receive and utilize the funds from fines All the money from fines goes into the general fund of the college. The hours for Tomlinson Library vary: Sunday the library is open from 1 to 10 p.m.; Monday through Thursday from 7:45 to 10 p.m.; Friday from 7:45 to 5 p.m.; and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. The library ' s staff is always willing to help find material needed and in most cases, if the library does not have the needed material, they can order it or in- struct the student on where to find it. mmi Use of the card catalog is explained in the Multimedia Orientation Program at the beginning of the year.

The hours the center is open are Mon- day through Friday from8 a.m. until 12 and 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Anyone who has a physical disability or a recurring physical problem which might af- fect his or her life at Tech is asked to please check with the clinic as early in the semester as possible for precautionary planning. Also, special medical parking permits may be is- sued to those people who are physically handicapped. Janette Wilson, the Student Health Service nurse, encourages those people who wish treatment for minor illness, such as a cold, sore throat, upset stomach or headache to come and receive help. Care for accidents and other minor emergencies is also given. Other services rendered to the Tech stu- dent are allergy injections or other specific medical treatments, blood pressure or dia- betes check, a tuberculosis skin test, im- munization for tetanus or a test for preg- nancy. Student insurance application forms or claims forms are also available in the center. The Student Health Service is also respon- sible for the blood drives on campus. The Red Cross comes to the Tech campus twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. To encourage students to donate, an award is given to the group, dorm, or organization with the most members donating.

" All ot the food served in Chambers, salad, peanut butter, and milk are student ' s staples By Kristi Voelkerding Lately there is a question that keeps running through my mind. It seems that every time I go trotting off across the cam- pus to stand in line for my daily ration of food, my thoughts turn to the question, " Is there life after lunch? " Now everyone knows that the cafeteria is the favorite subject for bad food jokes. On a college campus, the cafeteria is equal to a mess tent in the army. In fact some students watch M " A S H just to get new material. I prefer to be more original. (1 listen to other students and plagarize their material. ) The " gagateria " isn ' t exactly one of the hot spots on campus but it does constantly amaze me to see the long lines of people who wait to get in the place and then spend the entire time they ' re inside grip- ing about how terrible the food is and how they will probably die before morn- ing. But have you ever noticed that people that gripe the most are the ones that are shoving down the food faster than a truck driver? It is sort of amusing to see that these people are usually the ones waiting outside, first in line for the doors to open, while the whole time they talk about how bad the food is. I ' m sure that for some students, going to eat lunch is the high- light of their day, for some it is a chance to just get together with friends and talk over the day ' s problems. Some days the food is better than on other days. I ' ve decided that the more you eat in the " Torture Chambers " the easier it gets. I attribute this phenomenon to the fact that you build up a matural immunity to it. If any of us survive four years of this food then we should will our bodies to science. The ice-cream is usually one of the best things inside. Although it is a bit dis- couraging to find a cockroach frozen solid inside one of the containers. At least he died a happy death! Some kids have written up a manual on how to eat in the cafeteria. It ' s entitled, " Kill it Before it Kills You! " It contains tips on: identification; swallowing; and most importantly, how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. There are also special recipes such as, " peanut butter and honey " and " peanut butter and ba- nanas. " If there is life after lunch, I ' ll be the first to stand up and say that I lived to tell about it. Of course, all college campuses have their own little jokes about how bad the food is. Institutional food is not known for it ' s taste appeal. If there aren ' t jokes about the food there will be jokes and wise- cracks about something else. It is all a part of college life and it does make for some fun among us. Fraternity brothers find dinner a great time to socialize with each other and with other fraternities. ARA offers soft drinks, tea and kool-aid to drink as well as chocolate, two-percent and whole milk. 26Student life Y«j " Along the beaten path . . . Chambers Another facility along the beaten path is Chambers Cafeteria. It is under the supervi- sion of ARA and it provides the Tech student with several advantages.

These cooks go by a basic company recipe book that is also used by other cafeterias under American Restaurant Asso- ciation.

Young Student Center plays an important part on the Tech campus. Mrs. Shirley Goines, Director of Financial Aid, estimated that fifty percent of the stu- dents at Tech were receiving some kind of financial aid. When asked if most students could get aid, Mrs. Goines said, " Most get help when they need it. If they aren ' t able to get one type of loan they could be eligible for some other type of loan. Almost anyone is qualified for some kind of help. " This help can come in the form of student aid, student loans, guaranteed loans, athletic scholar- ships, state grants and state scholarships. In the undergraduate heading, a student can get financial aid on the federal level, the state level, institutional level, and from vari- ous other sources. These all include grants and scholarships, loans, and employment, at Tech. All students are encouraged to stop by the financial aid office where a staff of helpful and friendly people will give pri- vate financial counseling on budgeting your money, give breakdowns of the costs per semester and explain all of the various forms and brochures available to the stu- dent. 28 Student life Mrs Brewer works on a budgeting plan for a student Financial counseling is available at the office Linda Phillips is ready to provide private counseling to Tech students The staff also gives breakdowns of the costs per semester and describe the financial aid available Since approximately 50% of ATU students receive aid, there is much paper work to do Most students are eligible for some type of aid Shirley Goines, Director of Student Aid, is ready to help any student who seeks aid Staff members keep busy processing all the papers for the financial aid center Financial Aid 29 Fred Gott (right) is ready to meet with a recruiter The Center works with people from all fields 1 1 ■ ' ■-, 1 ) fr J§ Karen Taylor awaits help from Mr Jackson on available |ob opportunities Mr Neil Jackson, Director of Counseling and Placement, encourages all students to visit the center for |ob opportu- nities and placement He would especially like to see all juniors and students with over ninety hours. Along the beaten path . . . counseling The Counseling Center at Arkansas Tech should be considered as the Student De- velopment Center. Located in suite 124 of the Crabaugh Building, the Center plays an im- portant role in the services it provides for the approaching graduate. These services include the following: vari- ous tests and inventories pertaining to better self-understanding, interests, and aptitudes; confidential counseling sessions; study technique materials and assistance; re- sources (library) pertaining to career plan- ning; part-time job listings; materials on graduate and professional schools; informa- tion and application forms for Civil Service Exam, Medical College Admissions Test, Veterinary Aptitude Test, Graduate Records Exam, ACT Assessment, CLEP Exams (Credit by Examination), Miller Analogies test, and the Graduate Management Admis- sions Test; various graduate school scholar- ship bulletins; employment information in business, industry, and government agen- cies; and advising services for foreign stu- dents enrolled at ATU. Mr. Neil Jackson, Director of Counseling and Placement, commented on the location of the Student Development Center. " We have problems because we are not exactly in the mainstream of activity here at Arkansas Tech. " He also stated that more space was needed for individual testing as well as for large scale levels. One of the important components of the Student De- velopment Center is the Resource Room. Diana Reed takes advantage of the materials. 30 Student life Georgina Duncan, the Affirmative Action Officer, assists students by phone or in person The Center plays an important role in the services it pro- vides to Ron Anderson and Susie Shook A secretary is waiting to give Mr Jackson some informa- tion pertaining to a test Also located in the Student Development Center is the Resource Room Here, mate- rials tor specific careers, for career plan- ning, and for career options may be found. The Student Development Center re- sulted when the Career Planning and Placement Services were combined in the fall of 1974. During that year it was known as the Counseling Center. The Center ac- quired it ' s new title " The Student De- velopment Center " two years later with Mr. Jackson becoming the director. Mr. Jackson encourages all students, especially juniors and seniors with 90 or more hours to visit the center for job opportunities relating to their major. Students who are in general studies (un- declared majors) or those who have some doubts concerning their current career plans should make an appointment for career counseling. The use of various tests and inventories concerning interests, per- sonal values, abilities, personality traits, and other considerations along with geo- graphic limitations and studies of career forecasts can be helpful in realistic career planning. The Counseling Center personnel in- clude the following: Neil Jackson, Director; Marian Johnson, Study Skills Counselor; Elizabeth Underwood, Receptionist and Secretary; and Jeanie Adkins, Student As- sistant. Since counseling is a process in which the student comes to the counselor volun- tarily, an appointment is not required. However a previously arranged appoint- ment may be to the advantage of busy stu- dents. « Here are some of the hundreds of books and journals located in the Center Student Development 31 More than just a place to hang your hat The dorm becomes a home . . . only with longer halls.

It is the first time for many to be on their own. Dorm life means adjusting to having thirty or forty new brothers or sisters, Mom isn ' t going to be around to make sure you get up and make it to classes, and no- body really cares if you make your bed or not. For many it is the first step towards indepen- dence. It is strange to realize that no one is going to care if you make it in before 12 o ' clock or not, and if you don ' t force yourself over to the " Torture Chambers " for supper then you aren ' t going to be let inside to fix yourself a sandwich, but if you are lucky enough to have money you can go over to Whatta Burger for something. Dorm life does wonders for nervous peo- ple, it either cures them or they wind up in a mental ward for the rest of their life. It takes patience, tolerance and kindness to put up with late night card games and a mysterious phantom that goes flying by on roller skates trying to beat the dorm mother to their room. After a while the dorm starts to become more than ]ust a place to hang your hat, it becomes " home " , only with longer halls. You still have to fight for a turn in the shower and just like at home when you want something and your little brother or sister has it, here you find that if you don ' t hang on to what is: yours, you will end up hunting down who borrowed it. It all comes down to " give and take, " if you won ' t give it to them, then they ' ll take it! You can ' t be impatient in a dorm. If you stick your head out of the door and ask some- one to be quiet, usually in half an hour they will be quiet. For many it is the first time to have a guy or girl in their bedroom — heaven help you if your mother ever knew! Of course, you could tell her that if they would give you your own living room you would be able to entertain properly. Besides, what she doesn ' t know won ' t hurt her. If you want something done in the dorm you soon learn to do it yourself, or find some poor, stupid sucker to do it for you. Of course, if neither of these solutions are prac- tical, money does talk! When you start talk- ing cold, hard cash, you ' re talking right up someone ' s alley. Money can ' t buy every- thing, but in the dorm it can get you quite a bit. Everyone is always broke, and if they ' re not, you all get together and speculate on just what it is that keeps their pockets so full.

If you are one of those people that prefer to cultivate longlasting friendships on the basis of hon- esty, kindness, and some common interests then " go for it, " as for me, I ' ll suffer through the loneliness later and eat well now! Dorm life is what you make it, it is any- thing you want it to be. If you are willing to get out and get involved in the activities you will soon find all types of strange people. On the other hand, if you shut yourself up in your room and don ' t come out you shouldn ' t be surprised if you find out that you ' ve been left out of a whole lot of " interesting " hap- penings. You may even find out that your next door neighbor doesn ' t even know who you are! In certain cases that might be a bless- ing in disguise. Of course, it is always nice to have something to write home about. Mothers love to hear about all the weird peo- ple you are running around with.

Most of the people you meet in the first few days here are from your dorm and they become the people you run around with until you start to make some new friends outside of the dorm. Picnics between a men ' s dorm and a women ' s dorm tend to be fairly common. It is also a good way to check out some new faces and maybe find someone from your home town. Masse Hall holds an annual Christmas party for the Friendship School. Most of the other dorms also have some kind of party to celebrate the holidays. There is competition between the dorms during the blood drive to see who donates the most blood and most of the dorms have some kind of booth in the Phi Mu Carni- val. Dorm activities don ' t have to be or- ganized, a football game on the front lawn can be as much fun as the other things. Get involved in the dorm activities and you will soon find that there is a lot more to a dorm than meets the eye. College life is a chance for many new experiences and the dorm is a good place for some of these things to happen. Chances are that one of the girls you meet in the dorm will turn out to be your best friend. Getting together with the people on your floor to go to a movie or go out for a pizza is something that happens often. If you go someplace and you don ' t see at least one person from your dorm, you can bet that they are purposely avoiding you or you are in Alaska The dorm is a place to retreat to when you ' ve had a rotten day, or if you ' re feel- ing really happy then a quick trip up and down the hall will usually yield someone who is willing to share your happiness. At times the dorm is the one place on campus that you know you can go to without being hassled. It seems that inside the walls of " home " there is bound to be some great people just as excited about college life as you are, and if nobody is then maybe you will be able to infect them with some spirit and get them involved in dorm activities.

" The decor is " early American college student " When students go away to college they go to a lot of trouble to make their new homes a place that is comfortable. Most of the first week here will be spent trying to find the perfect place to put all the little things you ' ve brought from your room at home. If you have a lot of stuff you hope that your roommate won ' t have much and then there won ' t be any discussions on who ' s poster goes where. Each room is just a little bit different than any other; everyone has their own ideas on how to get rid of the sterile look that is standard for institutional housing. Some of the more ambitious students really spend a lot of time on this project but it may take two or three trips to haul everything here from home. Milk crates, posters, booze bottles, and even large rugs add to the decor, " Early American College Student. " Many students find their second home atTech to be more to their own liking than their rooms at home because here they have created their own little space. Using the room to study is a good idea if it is quiet enough. Some students are lucky to have a quiet roommate.

' s are responsible for maintaining peace ind quiet in the dorms, making rounds vhen on duty, and helping the students in heir wing with any problems that they night have. There are some advantages as well as some disadvantages to being an R.A. One thing hat seems to rank high on the list of advan- ces is the fact that they get a private room at io extra cost. Respect is also one of the ad- vantages of the job. The biggest disadvan- tage seems to be the fact that most R.A. ' s find it difficult to turn in their friends, yet Paine R.A. Alan Hines said, " If they ' re your true ' riends thev shouldn ' t get mad just because you ' re doing vour job. " Being an R.A. is not a hard job and the pay, while not outstand- ing, does supply a little extra money to spend. Not many other jobs offer such a flex- ible schedule. The R.A. ' s can get together and work out their work schedules to fit into their other schedules. Massie R.A., Kathy Collins feels that Massie first floor is really very quiet and that makes her job easier. She finds all the girls easy to get along with. Being responsible for the peace and quiet in the dorm can sometimes get to be a hassle, especially when R.A. ' s have to crawl out of a nice warm bed to quiet someone down. It is just one of the minor unpleasantnes of the job. All in all, it is not a difficult job at all, in fact for the most part it can be considered a " fun " job. Some R.A. ' s feel that they get to be a con- stant information source and it tends to be a bit of a bother sometimes. But, they under- stand that if someone on their floor does have a question then they are probably going to go to their R.A. for an answer. The job is not a hard one and if a student feels like they would be an ideal R.A. then they should ask their R.A. how they can find out about this wonderful job and apply! Studying takes up plenty of time for all students and R.A. ' s learn to make use of their time off for studying as well as for fun.

Married students take the re- sponsibility of not only being married but also being a full or part-time student here on Tech ' s campus. The meals must be cooked, the bills must be paid, the house kept clean, the dishes must be washed, the laundry has to be done and the groceries bought. On top of all these things just for the house, these people are students with studying, reading and any other activities that are connected with Tech. Most people would consider the married students professional " jugglers " be- cause they have to " juggle " homework, studying, and term papers with housework and time spent with their partner. Here is a typical scenario of what married students might have to deal with in an employee student relationship: you come home from work and are eager to go out to that movie that has just come to Russellville, but your student partner turns you down because of that upcoming Life and Letters exam. So the relationship will be full of these kind of ex- 44Srudent life periences where the two schedules are out of sync. Or another example would be: you come home and are eager to tell your partner the latest office gossip; but he is engrossed in a calculus assignment and snaps that he doesn ' t have the time right now. You feel rejected. Your partner feels guilty and you both end up feeling mad. The most impor- tant factor that a married student has to deal with is — MONEY. Money represents dif- ferent things to different people such as mas- culinity, power, security, independence, achievement, and status. Money has been called both the root of all evil and the good of our time. It is no secret that money does mean happiness especially to the married student. A budget is a must to Tech ' s stu- dents and it is no different for the married students. This is when they find out about each others priorities. Tech ' s married students may live in Tur- rentine apartments, which are located one block from the student center, or Freeman apartments, which are located on the east perimeter of Tech. Ginger Woolsey, the wife of Robert Woolsey, prepares daughter Lisa for her afternoon nap. Cheryl Wilson is a senior music education major at Tech. Freeman Apartments are both economical and convenient for her. Two year old Ashley is her daugh- ter David and Michael Seal work to line up a car door Several of Freeman ' s tenants ride bicycles back and forth to Tech Married srudents 45 Off-campus — hard to keep in touch ?} Even though off-campus students may have more op- portunity to parry, a lot of time still must be devoted to studying Many students move off campus because they need more peace and quiet than a dorm can offer at times Many Tech students choose to live off campus because they have more privacy and they can sometimes save money by not hav- ing to buy a meal ticket from the university. To most students, living off campus means no visitation, better food (if students can cook or heat up t.v. dinners like Mom used to), private parties and a feeling that they are a semi-independent person by being their own boss. Coming and going without worry- ing about disturbing anyone makes living off campus desirable to some students If an apartment, house, mobile home or trailer is shared, the expense is considerably cheaper than a dorm. Rent and utilities are much cheaper. Food can be cheaper through the dorm but most Tech students do not use all of their meal tickets and therefore get no refund on the unused meals. But if students can stand to eat their own meals then they should be able to save a few dollars. Ginger Oliver says, " I can get a lot of things done in my apartment that I could not in the dorm. The only thing 1 miss about living on campus is keeping up with Tech ' s activities and of course, the gossip. " Most off-campus students can keep up with Tech news through the Arka-Tech and the letter called " This week at Tech " . If a student happens to be in the student center then a lot of news can be discovered through students and the bulletin boards. While a student is living off-campus the student must cook, (sometimes this is bad or good, depending on the cook) clean and keep up with the dishes and laundry. Also, if the student lives far off campus this will mean a car or bicycle. A car means more money spent out of the student ' s pocket due to the high prices of gas or if any repairs have to be made. " There are a lot of good things about living off-campus such as being your own boss, being able to own a pet, and having no visita- tion, but students should carefully consider the expenses before taking such a big step " , says Ginger Oliver, " It is easy to forget about transportation expenses, rent raises, and extra food costs for hungry friends that drop by.

By I ' m Billings It ' s been told that if you are out walking late at night and the wind is whistling around Caraway Hall, you can sometimes still hear the chants and howls of the ghost that roams the hallowed halls of Caraway. Legend has it that back when Caraway was being built the workers uncovered a sacred Indian burial ground. The remains were that of Black Horn, a chief of the Witchita Indians. According to the legend, Chief Black Horn is standing guard over the sacred burial grounds beneath Caraway. This story seems likely, especially after the incident which oc- curred back when Caraway was a women ' s dorm. Several stories were told about the strange goings on in the attic pajama lounge. During a storm, the wind would seem to whistle louder in Caraway than anywhere else on campus. Girls living on the third floor were said to be awakened often on stormy nights as the wind approached almost a scream. But the story told most often was about a young girl who was a descendent of the Witchita tribe that used to roam this area. She would often complain of noises that woke her up in the night. None of the other girls ever heard them. People say she heard some strange sounds one night and went to investigate. She went up the stairs to the attic and looked around the corner. What she saw, has never been explained. She claimed to see an Indian camp set in the woods. She saic there were Indians sittting aound the fire anc that they were chanting. It was then that one of the Indians looked up and directly into hei. eyes. Then the scene wavered and disapl peared. The girl left at the end of the semester anc decided not to return to school. Now, although Caraway ' s halls have beer empty for years, people walking through the courtyard after football games or coming from the library late on a stormy night ofter hear a whistling, rustling sound coming from deep within Caraway ' s walls. Usually they forget about it and continue on theii way. But a few years ago, two girls returning from Hull saw a figure in the left attic win dow of Caraway. It stood there for just ; moment, then stepped back and was gone. The campus police were sent to investigate but found no one. The dust wasn ' t even dis turbed in the attic. So the next time you ' re walking across thi courtyard late at night, listen to those sound: you took for granted. Are they really just th wind? Study the attic windows of Caraway Chances are, he ' s watching you. Caraway Hall is located on the east end of the courtyard . Tech.

In the early 1900 ' s, education was on an upgrade and more and more students were attending city high schools and preparatory schools. Seeing this, the rural citizens of Arkansas began to fear that too many of their chil- dren would be drawn away from the farm and the agricultural pursuits which had so long been their way of life. Farmers ' organizations such as the Grange and the Farmer ' s union got the idea to have agricultural schools in Ar- kansas. After some legal maneuvers, an act to divide the state into four agricul- tural districts was passed. One agricul- tural school was put in each division, hence the Second District Agricultural School. October 26, 1910 was opening day for the school. The first student body con- sisted of ninety-nine boys and seventy- seven girls. A student government was formed and a football team was started. The Aggies got off to a good start by win- ning 6-0 over Atkins. Six buildings dotted the campus in 1910, the Administration Building (Cra- baugh), the Home Economics Building, Wilson Hall and Gresham Hall for men, and Middy Helm and Voisie for the women students. The two men ' s housing units are now the wings of Wilson Hall. The school was predominantly voca- tional so the men were required to do farm work and the women practiced their homemaking skills in the afternoon. Chapel was held every morning and at- tendance was mandatory. A bugler blew Reville every morning, after which stu- dents got into formation in front of the dorms to march to breakfast. Col. Stroupe, a member of the board of trustees actually started the first band. He was responsible for the Administration buying thirteen instruments, after which Marvin Williamson, the first person to en- roll at Tech, was named director in 1913. Williamson continued as band, or- chestra, and dance orchestra leader until 1950. At that time he stepped down to Gene Witherspoon. In 1919, came the event which provided the name Wonder Boys for the athletic teams of the Russellville school. The Jonesboro Ag- gies, another of the district agri schools, was claiming the state college championship by virture of victories over the other schools. When Tech dumped them 14-0, an Arkansas Gazette sports writer contributed the mon- icker. In 1925, the school granted Bachelor of Sci- ence degrees for two years. At that time the name was changed to Arkansas Polytechnic College. By 1948, when Tech had become a four year institution, six more buildings had been added and major changes had been made to the campus. In 1932, J. W. Hull began his tenure as President. When he arrived, enrollment was 364. Under his leader ship, enrollment peaked at 1400 with the return of the WWII veterans. Tech tradition includes many names. Un- avoidable in the school history are the famil- iar names which have become associated with the Tech tradition. They are found cer- tainly in the names of buildings and campus organizations but more important, they are imprinted in the hearts of past and present Tech students, to be often recalled in word and thought. The list is long, but these must be in- cluded: E. S. Tomlinson, " Mr. Tommy, " long-time botany teacher, much beloved; Col. John Buerkle, former engineering pro- fessor; Marvin Williamson, " George, " band director for thirty-seven years; G. R. Turen- tine, " Mr. T, " the first Dean; T. A. Dulaney, who taught history from 1928 to 1956; J. W. Hull, president for thirty-five years; Dean A. J. Crabaugh; John E. Tucker, past director of student affairs; Gene Witherspoon, band di- rector for twenty-nine years; and Francis I. Gwaltney, much beloved English professor. Tech has come far in these years as enroll- ment now tops three thousand students.

Arkansas Tech de- pends on Russellville for the services it provides students and Russellville de- pends on the University for the business it brings the merchants, but the relation- ship is more than just business. With a closer look, a person realizes it is people who make up a community relationship. The most important community service according to Tech students are the grocery stores and restaurants. It seems students are always ready to gobble a burger dur- ing a student break. For a quick bite to eat, Whatta Burger, McDonald ' s, Munchy ' s and Wendy ' s are close by. For students renting refrigerators, Safeway is ready to stock them and offers double coupon days in addition. When students aren ' t eating, they ' re ususally studying and surprisingly, the community has much to offer the studious student. The Russellville library is open from 9-5:30 every day, and may offer some books Tomlinson doesn ' t have. Also, the community offers many ways for certain students to practice in the fields they are maionng in at Tech. Rehabilitation majors at Tech often work at the Friendship School and Lake House. A few gymnastic students give lessons within the community or teach in the dance studios in Russellville.

It is made up of one hun- dred people, mostly University students with around one-fifth to one-fourth of the choir being people from the community The purpose of the choir is to study and perform major choral works. A special as- pect of the community choir is the fact that they usually perform with orchestration. The choir in the past has performed Handel ' s " Messiah, " " St. Paul " by Men- delson, " The Creation, " by Bach, and in the spring presented " The Wind Mass " by Brookner. The fall production " Hodie " by Vaughn Williams was presented with the Russellville High School choir and a children ' s group composed of students from Crawford, Dwight, London, Oak- land Heights, and Sequoyah elementary schools.

Nebo in the west, blocking the sun. People in Russellville switched on the local station for information, but found little was available. Several buildings and hun- dreds of acres of farmland were already destroyed as fire closed in on Mt. Nebo. When a reporter and a photographer from Tech saw the smoke, they left to in- vestigate. They stopped at the Russellville fire department to get some background information. The fire was south of Mt. Nebo. Two units from other rural fire de- partments had already responded. Fire Chief Lawrence Richmond offered to give them a ride to the scene. The following is an account of what they saw and heard. 5:40 — The fire is coming through the saddle between Jones and Mt. Nebo and spreading fast. The bulldozers that were forming fire breaks are of little use be- cause of the strong winds which are caus- ing the fire to jump the breaks. The heav- ier equipment is limited to protecting structures at the base of the mountain; the road is too steep and winding to allow access to the top of the mountain. Chief Richmond warned us to stay in the car if the fire began to overtake the vehicles and Randy Price, a Tech |unior from Russellville and a volunteer fireman, was on the scene instructed us on how to use the oxygen tank in the back seat. It had thirty minutes of air. 6:05 — The Mt. Nebo State Park pool ' s fence is cut down, providing access to the only source of water on top of the moun- tain. They stopped at Sunrise Point to find the fire obscured by smoke, making breathing difficult and irritating to the eyes. The smoke intensified as the fire closed within several hundred yards of the ridge. Communication 76, a radio ser- vice which serves the Pope County Sheriff ' s office as well as others, stopped the Chief and told him if the fire comes over the top of the mountain, it will take out all the transmission towers. They are going to pull out the transmitters and put them in a fireproof building. Richmond sighs and shakes his head, " I ' ll tell you what, not to be a pessimist, but if this fire doesn ' t take the top of this mountain, I ' ll be damned surprised. The only thing that will stop this is the weather If the wind keeps up and with the lack of humidity, it will bum all night. " 6:30 — Randy Price, a Tech junior from Russellville majoring in Agri-Business said, " This one ' s bad; the wind ' s blowing stronger. " John Cochran, a freshman at Tech is a full time member of the Rus- sellville fire department.

" Several students from Tech bring food and water and help fight the fire, but aren ' t signed up as volunteers, " said Cochran. h:47 — Word is passed around that a water drop has been requested, but planes are al- ready committed to another fire. Several homeowners, parks people and volunteers are working constantly to ready the homes at the top for the fire ' s onslaught 7:05 — The fire is crawling up the south and east sides of the mountain People with gas or water tanks are volunteering to help carry water to the fire. The fire is too large and the terrain too rough to go down to the fire. Richmond said, " In a lire like this, we don ' t go to it, we set up a blockade, and wait for the fire to come to us. Mainlv, we try to protect the structures. " 7: 16 — The fire is in the ravine just be low the ridge and is starting up the side. Rich- mond informs his men, " We have just about the worst conditions here. We ' re low on wa- ter, the road is too steep to allow the larger engines up, and the vegatation is being pre- heated by the fire; looks pretty grim. " 7:32 — A park employee said, " Looks like it ' s going to hit the middle first. It ' s burning under our feet here, (below the cliff) but we have the rocks to protect us. " 8:07 — The fire is fingering out around the mountain, " If it hits at one place at a time instead of hitting on a broad front, we stand a better chance of stopping it, " said a volun- teer. 8:15 — Several houses on the ridge are threatened. Charles Howell, a homeowner on the ridge said, " I saw it coming about noon and started getting ready. I sent my wife down about a half hour ago, I hope she made it. " A unit pulled into his front yard and headed to the ridge. " My father built this house in 1933, " he continued, " I sure would hate to lose it. " 8:49 — The fire is three hundred yards below the top on the ridge. Smoke is so in- tense that breathing without any form of pro- tection is difficult and painful. Firefighters are ready and some instances are already fighting the blaze as it reaches the top. 9:00 — " The wind looks like it ' s trying to die down, the humidity ' s coming up and the temperature is dropping, " Richmond said. " Maybe with a little grace, it will creep up the cliff and we can stop it, but I ' m afraid it will get to the bottom and shoot up. It ' s going to depend entirely on the wind. " 9:10 — News reached the fire fighters that the fire has jumped the road about halfway up the Mt. Nebo road, blocking the only road off the mountain. Although there is no im- mediate danger, everyone on the mountain is cut off by the fire. Gasoline becomes an immediate concern, but is quickly rectified by the rangers from the park. 9:45 — There ' s a critical area on the south side of the mountain. Fire is cresting on both sides " Looks like it ' s going to hit on a broad front, that ' s what we were afraid of, " said Richmond. 1011 — The fire is hitting all along the ridge, cresting in some areas. Trucks and men swarm to each area. Each house be- comes a separate battle in which the crews tight like it was their own. This is the tire that everyone has tea red here on Nebo, " stated Richmond. 10:30 — A light sprinkling is reported on Sunrise Point. Volunteers are standing by in Russellville, but the crews decide to stick it out rather than be relieved. Several men are requesting eye drops for relief from the smoke. A police car from Dardanelle is on its way up with several bottles of the eye wash. A relief station is set up at the visitor ' s center providing food and drinks for the crews when they go to fill up with water from the nearby pool. 10:48 — The eye wash arrives and is dis- tributed to the crews over the ridge. Occa- sional fire breaks over the waiting fire fight- ers. 11:03 — Relief crews are dispatched from Russellville to take over for the exhausted crews. A backfire is started on the road to check the fire where it is. 11:28 — Several crews are relieved and head home. Others stay and continue fight- ing to save structures on the mountain. Vol- unteers and large tank trucks are gathered at the foot of the mountain to offer assistance. A Pope county ambulance arrives and starts treating people with eye irritation and dis- penses oxygen to several others. Chief Rich- mond, along with the two students from Tech leave for Russellville 12:15 — Richmond arrives at the fire de- partment. The students arrive at Tech and write their story and process their film, not yet knowing the fire is finally after a long, hard fight contained. - John Cochran, a freshman at Tech, is a full time member of the Russellville fire department Dewayne Milsap, assistant chief of the Dardanelle Fire Department listens to Richmond ' s instructions Mt- Nebo fire 57 Headlining the news of 1980 Rising inflation, gas shortages and Mount St. Helens plagued the nation while on the international level, Rus- sia invaded Afghanistan, and Iranian students held fifty- two American c itizens hostage. nly a year to remember with momentous events headlining the uit almost every day. irtunately, most of the news was Inflation continued to rise, with the price of gasoline. The gas shortage made motorists all over the coun- try alter their driving habits and cut back on their driving Tiny American cars took to the road, dwarfed by their own price tags, and the Chrysler Corporation had to beg for a government bailout to preserve free en- terprise. Fifty-three American citizens were held against their will in the turbulant country of Iran, after an overthrow of the govern- ment by militant students. The Iranian incident hurt the reputa- tion of the United States worldwide. America, supposedly the strongest nation on the face of the earth, was powerless to gain the release of those fifty-two Ameri- cans in Iran. The morale of the United States continued to decrease after a failed attempt to rescue the hostages, an act which cost the lives of eight American military men. Russia invaded the small country of Af- ghanistan, which was seen by President Jimmy Carter as the greatest threat to our nation since World War II. The United States might not have been able to counter the Russian attack on Af- ghanistan, but the American Hockey Team received a glorious moment of triumph when they soundly defeated the Russian team at Lake Placid. But all was not well for the athletes in the United States. In protest of the Russian attack on Afghanistan, President Carter ordered a boycott of the Summer Olympics in Moscow. The boycott angered and frustrated many athletes who had devoted their lives in prep- aration for the Summer Olympics. With a blast as powerful as the largest hy- drogen bomb ever exploded, Mount St. Hel- ens erupted in one of the best documented natural disasters of recent history. Despite the two months ' advance warning of the eruption, thirty-four people lost their lives. The sight of thousands of trees scorched, stripped and laid low, of barren deserts of ash and mud, stirred a kind of elemental mistrust of the earth. John Lennon, one of the most popular mu- sical talents of our time, was shot and killed by a crazed gunman in front of the apartment buildings where he lived in New York City. Lennon ' s premature death saddened and angered the entire country, and also made many people think twice about the issue of gun control. A quick and decisive response to the Cuban refugee problem was the announce- ment that the United States would accept 3,500 of them. Then the nation stood by, helplessly, as Cubans took to the sea by thousands and ten thousands, defying the United States to return them to Fidel Castro. In a little more than two months, some 110,- 000 Cubans landed in Florida, and in the end, the U.S. had no choice but to accept them. Violence was widespread across the coun- try. In Miami ' s ghettos, days of rioting fol- lowed the aquittal of four white ex-police- men in the brutal death of a black busi- nessman. Frustration struck viciously along the corridors of New Mexico ' s penitentiary, leaving 33 prisoners bludgeoned, burned or stabbed to death in a 36-hour rebellion. Vio- lence also erupted in our own state of Arkan- sas among the Cuban refugees at Fort Chafee. President Jimmy Carter certainly had his problems running the country, and he also had the presidential election to worry about in 1980. The low morale and frustration of the peo- ple of the United States made them ready for a change, and they made this fact known loud and clear in the presidential election of 1980. Former California Governor Ronald Rea- gan was the Republican candidate chosen to challenge the incumbent president. Many political experts believed that the race was going to be too close until the last minute, but they were wrong. Thai border patrol troops file a motor shell across the Mekong river into Laos as fighting continued between Laotian forces and Thai troops at this border town. 58 Stude Reagan defeated Carter soundly in a land- slide victory with a margin so wide that it surprised many people all over the country. Americans were obiouslv tired of the dif- ficult times, and wanted a new start. Rea- gan ' s optimism that the state of the country was not irreversible and could be made much better was definitely a prominent factor in his victory. The people of the United States depended on the new Republican President to make the country a better place to live in, and believed that for this to be possible, a change in the leadership of the country must be made. Whether or not the change is for the better, we will have to wait and see. S. W.

President Carter said he saw Russia ' s invasion of Afghanistan as the greatest threat to our nation since World War II The Presidential election of 1980 was cer- tainly the highlight of the year. Democratic incumbent Jimmy Carter was being challeneged by the Republican candi- date, Ronald Reagan of California. President Carter was having problems with many events and issues in the country, but no one knew for sure if Ronald Reagan could do any better. Both candidates had certain advantages over the other. Jimmy Carter had the experience, which gave him the advantage of not having to learn the job after he took office in 1981. He also understood the limitations and dangers involved in the use of U.S. power in the world, and within these limits had achieved some noteworthy success in foreign affiars. He was disciplined, intelligent, and only fifty six years old, twenty-three years young- er than Ronald Reagan. And to the oppo- nents of the Republican candidate, he was not Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was an optimist who re- fused to accept as inevitable the decline of either the U.S. influence abroad or tradi- tional American virtues and values at home. He would give the country a new start — what the people in America were so desper- ate for. Reagan would work hard to restore the respect for America around the world. And to some people, his main advantage was that Reagan was not Jimmy Carter. The candidates were also plagued by many disadvantages, which made some voters re- luctant to cast their ballots for either candi- date. Carter had the responsibility for taking the blame for all the problems an incumbent President must handle. Rising inflation, un- employment at home, and turmoil overseas were the main issues that hurt the Carter campaign. Many citizens considered Ronald Reagan too old to be an effective president. He also had the reputation of being a right-wing ex- tremist, which also hurt his image among some of the voters. Reagan had not had the chance to prove himself, as Carter had done in the past four years. Republican Reagan and Democrat Carter also held many different political views. The conservative Republican from Cali- fornia and the centrist Democrat from Geor- 60 Student life President-elect Ronald Reagan with his wife Nancy were greeted by well-wishers at Los Angeles airport on their departure aboard an Air Force presidential jet for Washington. DC and Reagan s (anuarv 20 inauguration In the background is the presidential seal on the side of the aircraft gia were locked in a dead-even struggle that could affect the role of the Federal Govern- ment in domestic affairs, create a clean split in political philosophy between the two major parties, profoundly affect the nation ' s economy and energy directions, and would deeply influence the role America played on the global stage. One of the major issues that Reagan and Carter differed sharply on was the role of the Federal Government in solving the nation ' s social problems. Carter had not been pushing hard for new programs, but his philosophy had been that it is the Government ' s responsibility to uplift the lowly, keep watch on the powerful, and legislate equal opportunity In contrast, Reagan was deeply suspicious of Washington ' s trying to cure the ills of American society. He was much more in- clined to let the jo b be done on a state or local level, and whenever possible, by private en- terprise, rather than by government. Another example of the difference be- tween the philosophy of Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter was the stand each candidate took on government ' s role in welfare. Reagan wanted to get the Federal Govern- ment out of the welfare business, while Car- ter believed that the government should take on more responsibility where welfare is con- cerned. The choice of who would govern the United States for four more years could well depend on the acts of a hostile, often irra- tional Iranian government The hostage issue was a delicate subject in the presidential campaign. The release of the fifty-three Americans being held against their will in Iran was obviously an important factor in the landslide victory of Ronald Re- agan over Jimmy Carter. The election proved that most Americans were ready for a change, either a good one or a bad one. President Ronald Reagan laughs at the posters of his old movies hung on the curtain behind the head table at a dinner in Washington hosted by the Washington Press Club at a Washington hotel Presidential elections 61 Bill Clinton (nght), past governor of Arkansas. The issues closer to home The gubernatorial election is always an important event to the citizens of Arkan- sas, and 1980 proved to be no exception. However, the election also proved to be quite a shocker for many political analysts and voters all across the state. Bill Clinton, the youngest governor in America, had his share of problems dur- ing his term. The Cuban refugee problem at Fort Chaffee was the main issue con- cerning the state. Although Clinton had his share of prob- lems, he was still a popular up and coming young politician with a promising career nationally as well as in the state. No one expected him to have any difficulty being elected to another term as governor. It seemed almost impossible to nominate a candidate who would even give him a challenge. Frank White was the choice of the Re- publicans in Arkansas. No one really ex- pected White to give Clinton any competi- tion whatsoever in the election. During the middle of the year, things began to go wrong for the young Democ- ratic incumbent. The problems of the governor ' s office began to increase, and many of the deci- sions made by Clinton were unpopular with the people in the state. Also, Frank White was campaigning vigorously, and was also attracting many supporters with his stand that a change was needed in the state for a new start to better things The polls proclaimed that Clinton was definitely ahead, and although many people were casting their votes as a pro- test toward the Clinton administration, it was still unbelievable that White would receive enough votes to unseat Governor Clinton. I arly in the evening on election night, ws reporters predicted a comforta- ble victory for Clinton. Many voters went to sleep that Tuesday evening thinking that Bill Clinton was still the governor of Arkan- sas and would continue to be so for the fol- lowing two years. After all the ballot boxes were counted, it was determined that Frank White had actu- ally defeated the young incumbent, much to the surprise of many people in the state. Arkansas had followed the trend of many states in the U.S. by getting rid of incumbent officials and replacing them with new faces who promised a new start and a change for the better in our country Arkansas was the site of many eventful happenings during the past year. The highlight of the year was the guber- natorial election. Democratic incumbent Bill Clinton was challenged by Republican Frank White, who many people felt did not provide much competition for the young up and com- ing governor. However, White turned out to be more of a challenge than expected. Many voters cast their ballots for White as a protest against the Clinton administration, and this turned out to be sufficient enough for Mr. White to soundly defeat Governor Clinton. The outcome of the election shocked many citizens in Arkansas, although upsets were definitely becoming a trend in elections all over the country. The summer of 1980 will long be remem- bered by people in Arkansas. The drought caused by excessively high temperatures and no rainfall for over six months plagued farm- ers who were losing crops by the acre every day. Since Arkansas is a highly agricultural state, the drought was devastating to most of the people all over Arkansas. Cuban refugees were sent to Fort Chaffee by order of President Jimmy Carter after they were released from their home country by Fidel Castro. Violence and riots erupted at Fort Chaffee, and private citizens became in- volved in the struggles at times. The people of the area surrounding Fort Chaffee were very upset at the widespread violence. Out of the fifty-two American citizens who had been held hostage in Iran, two of them were Arkansas natives. The state welcomed Robert Blucker and Steven Kirtley home with a grand celebration and parade through downtown Little Rock. Arkansas was also the home of George Holmes, Jr., an Ameri- can military man who was killed in the failed rescue attempt of the hostages. Holmes ' par- ents were also honored on the occasion. f 2 Student life Frank White, the Arkansas ' new governor Concern over nuclear power hit our nation after the incident at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania. The threat of a nuclear acci- dent was especially frightening to people in our area because of the close location of AP L ' s Nuclear One power plant near Rus- sellville. Arkansas experienced its own nuclear ac- cident, but the incident did not occur at Nu- clear One. The Titan II missile at a silo near Damascus exploded, injuring several people and fatally wounding one person. The acci- dent created a controversy about the nuclear missile sites in Arkansas, which continues even at the present time. Sports fans in Arkansas had many things to cheer about during the past year, but sometimes they did not. For Razorback football fans, 1980 was defi- nitely not a good year.

The sea- son went downhill from there, and at the end of the year, the Razorbacks felt lucky to re- ceive an invitation to the Hall of Fame Bowl. However, the Razorback basketball team was a different story. Despite a slow start at the beginning of the season, Arkansas re- gained the state ' s honor by capturing the Southwest Conference title after defeating the Houston Cougars in their second match of the year. After Houston continued to lose after that, the Razorbacks were the unchal- lenged winners of the conference cham- pionship. The Arkansas Tech Wonder Boy football team also had a lot to be proud of during the fall of 1980. Coach Harold Steelman led the Wonder Boys to a 6-4 season, the best record Tech has had in quite a while. At one time during the season, Arkansas Tech was tied for first place in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference with UCA. Althoug the Tech team was defeated by the Bears, they kept spirit up, and gave Wonder Boys fans many exciting moments during the 1980 football season. After football season ended, Tech had an- other team to be proud of in the sports de- partment. The Golden Suns once again proved themselves to be winners by captur- ing the number one spot in the nation. The Suns sported an impressive record during the season, and certainly won the respect anc admiration of everyone on the Tech campus The summer drought of 1980 caused a neai disaster in our area. A fire broke out or Mount Nebo near Dardanelle that endan- gered the homes and lives of many people. Fire departments from all over the Arkansas River valley were called to help fight the gigantic forest fire. Many acres of trees were destroyed, but no one was seriously hurt. Many newsworthy events occurred right here at Tech. Enrollment at Arkansas Tech surpassed the 3,000 mark, setting a record in the num- bers of students attending Tech. Two women students at Tech received honors at the Miss Arkansas pageant in Hot Springs during the month of July. Laura Stanulis, Miss Arkansas Tech, was one of the swimsuit winners in preliminary competi- tion, and was also named fourth runner up in the overall competition. Elizabeth Ward, Miss Lake Dardanelle, also won a swimsuit preliminary, and received the honor of being Arkansas ' Nuclear One is located in Russellville, causing many citizens to worry when the Three Mile Island Nu- clear incident occurred. - W- T 1UL4 M Stud. named first runner up in the overall pageant. Tucker Coliseum was the site of many en- tertaining programs during the past year. One of the highlights of the year was the Air Supply concert. The rock group from Austral- ia entertained many area residents, as well as Tech students. Air Supply performed such hits as " Lost in Love, " " I ' m All Out of Love, " and " Every Women in the World.

Shows of all kinds were presented, from movies to musicals to the Miss Tech Pageant. The theatre department and the music department put in many hours of work every day on their shows and, as always, presented outstanding per- formances. In the spring of 1980, the Theatre Guild Dinner Theatre Production was An Evening of One Acts, which consisted of four one-act plays. Flight 13 to Nowhere, is a comedy about what happens when an incompetent pilot narrowly avoids crashing his plane time after time. As his passengers face what they think will be certain death, they begin to reveal their life secrets to one another. The play was directed by Marc Turner and the cast consisted of Pat Parker, Chuck Pistone, Kenneth Williams, Tim Williams, Jenny Toney, Ivory White, Ronnie Hoof, Tammy Churchman, and Donny Russell. The Mannequin, a play with a happy end- ing, tells the tale of a man who falls hope- lessly in love with a mannequin. As he de- spairs, who should come along but a drun- ken fairy godmother who brings the man- nequin to life. The play was directed by John McMahon and the cast was comprised of Donny Rus- sell, John McMahon, Linda Keplinger and Jenny Toney. Class Houses is the story of a woman who lives in an all glass house and as the play progresses, proceeds to go totally insane. Glass Houses was directed by Chuck Pistone and the woman was played by Tammy Stone. In Murder Mystery, the cast is killed off, one by one, and only at the end is it re- vealed that the victims are all characters in the mind of a writer gone mad. The play was directed by Mark Bourne and the cast was Marc Turner, Mark Bourne, Ross Ro- den, Yolanda Bloodsaw, Shirley Hender- son, Tammy Churchman, and Tim Wil- liams.

The title of Miss Tech 1980 was bestowed upon Laura Stanulis of Fort Smith. Stanulis walked away with the title before a crowd of approximately 700 in Witherspoon Au- ditorium. The title of Miss Arkansas Tech University was not the only recognition Laura received during the evening ' s com- petition. She won the talent portion of the contest with her piano selection of " Rhap- shody in Blue " accompanied by a clarinet introduction. Tom Parks was the emcee for the pageant for the second time. As master of cere- monies, Parks entertained the audience with jokes about college life and cafeteria food. The audience, mostly Tech students, alumni, and a few locals responded wildly to Parks poking fun at campus life.

This one given on Halloween night, was especially fun, The Arkansas Tech Choir often performs on campus. They give between three to five performances a year. Entertainment?! Choir is hard work and dedication Dr. Rolland Shaw, in his ninth year as Choral Director of ATU ' s Vocal Department, has established two separate choral units: The Chamber Choir, which meets Monday through Friday at 1:00; and the Concert Choir, which meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:00. These choral units were separated because Chamber Choir members had also been members of Concert Choir and band. The Concert Choir follows Chamber Choir which allows each group to have its own leaders and encourages wider participa- tion of non-music majors. These two groups — Chamber and Concert — form the nucleus of the Community Choir, open to members of the community as well as Tech students. Both the Chamber and Concert Choirs have presented an excellent variety of con- certs to the public. In October, the Chamber Choir sponsored and staged " The Student Prince. " Also, in October, the Concert Choir presented its Fall Concert. In November, the Chamber Choir pre- sented its Fall Concert. The choirs also held their annual Christmas Concert. Addition- ally, in December, the choirs — Chamber, Concert, Community and Russellville High School Choral group — combined to present " Hodie. " In February the Chamber Choir sponsored a Variety Show as a means of earning money for a choral concert tour in Europe, which will be in the latter part of May. In March the Chamber Choir will present its Spring Con- cert while the Concert Choir will give their Spring Concert in April. Additionally in Ap- ril, the Concert Choir will tour the adjacent school districts giving concerts. Chamber Choir members are selected by audition, just as is required for Concert Choir, and is comprised of twenty-four members. Dr. Shaw, however, hopes to in- volve more students in Concert Choir and to make participation in all the Choirs an im- portant activity on the Arkansas Tech cam- pus.

Tech ' s " Bands of Distinction " Located on the first floor of Witherspoon Auditorium there is a department that is the core of one of Arkansas Tech ' s largest organi- zations — The Arkansas Tech Band of Dis- tinction. Under the leadership of Hal Cooper, direc- tor, the one hundred and thirty member ATU Marching Band begins preparing for their annual tour immediately after the Fall semes- ter begins. The tour, which covers the Northwest part of the state, includes Wal- dron, Mena, Fort Smith, Rogers, and Siloam Springs. The Fall semester tour of 1980 was highlighted by a concert here with nationally known saxophonist Roger Pemberton, who performed two numbers with the band and held a special clinic for interested students. During football season, the ATU Band of Distinction performed at all home games and traveled to three out of town games. They also participated in many parades through- out the Fall semester. Additionally, the Ar- kansas Tech University Band performed in both the Ozark and Russellville Marching Band Contests. An annual Christmas concert was given during the second week in De- cember. The ATU Marching Band is under the field direction of Drum Major, Charles Dunlap, a senior Computer Science major from Rus- sellville. The Auxiliary units are under the supervision of Coordinator Julia Trusty, a senior Music Education major, also from Russellville. The Auxiliary units include twelve flag members, six rifle team mem- bers, and six majorettes. There are plans to double the flag line to twenty-four members for next fall ' s season. Ensembles also comprise a part of the Music Department. The ATU Ensembles, The concert band is the band offered during the spring However, it is a separate band from the marching band.

More participation in ensembles is desired by Mr. Cooper, who feels that more organization will improve the groups. More participation in Jazz and Stage Bands have helped to broaden the scope of the excellence required in the Music Department. This excellence is also evident in the Music Education Program directed by Hall Cooper, who states, " My goal is to prepare teachers to be the very best in the state of Arkansas when they graduate. " So, " From Start to Finish, " the ATU Marching and Concert Bands have truly earned the title of " ATU ' s Band of Distinc- tion. " Dusqua Phillips, a senior accounting major, is a former majorette tor the ATU marching band- In addition to pre-game and half time playing, the band is well known for their trumpet fanfares and drum bang- ing in the stands.

The young Democrat urged participants in the Governor ' s Leadership Conference to de- cide what kind of people they want to be- come and then to do all they could early in life to develop their minds. Governor Clinton told them they could not achieve their personal goals by " trading on personality, physical stamina, and their in- terests only. " " It is too easy to function in the world without developing your mind, " he said. " You can watch TV, listen to the radio and conversations, and read the papers without learning the fundamental basic elements of intellectual activity. " Govenor Clinton also criticized the tactics used by both President Jimmy Carter and his Republican challenger, Ronald Reagan, in the 1980 presidential election. " Carter and Reagan have insulted the in- telligence of the American people with all of the negative and irrelevant issues, " Clinton said. " And if I were assigning blame, it would be 50-50. " " I would much rather have them argue forcefully and deeply about the issues on which they disagree, so that you and 1 could form a positive vision about what their ad- ministrations would be like.

They are: Mr. Dean Hudson, chairman; Dr. Stanley Teeter, vice chairman; Mrs. Cora McHenry, secretary; Mr. Randy Talkington; and Mr. James Pledger. Tech ' s administration is directly responsi- ble to them; the Board of Trustees does the hiring, approves programs, makes all of the policies of the school, and approves the budget. Members receive no payment except that mileage to the meetings is paid. Tech ' s Board of Trustees meet on the third Thursday of everv month. Board of Trustees Academics 81 iin III! til! IIIIIIHIliUIHIi Shouldering the responsibility " I feel Tech is one of the finest schools in the state of Arkansas or this part of the coun- try, " said Kenneth Kersh, president of Tech. Kersh ' s primary responsibility is to the Board of Trustees, which is appointed by the governor. He carries out the regulations and procedures approved by the Board. The administration is broken down into several areas with a vice-president over each. One part of Kersh ' s job is to supervise these people and to keep a lateral movement be- tween them. He also coordinates their efforts with the community and political effort and acts as spokesman for Tech to the Board of Higher Education. His job is mainly " fitting the parts together to achieve success. " Leaning forward, he said, " My goal is to continue to improve on academic standards and to improve the degree of quality in un- dergraduate education for problem solving in a society that is becoming more complex. " He feels we must match students to pro- grams and " improve our programs above and beyond what we have now. " He wants it to be that when a student graduates and gets his first job, he ' ll do a fine enough job that employers will come back to us and ask for more people like that. Kersh has been president at Tech since January 1, 1973. He came here from Hendrix, but attended Tech as a student from 1950 to 1954. " We know what it takes to be a success here, " he said. " We look for students that have done something academically in high school. " But academics aren ' t the only thing, he goes on to stress leadership, experience and talents such as art or music. " I feel good now about our future, " he said. " The main reason is that we have not played around with any gimmicks; not sub- verted academic standards. " Executive Vice President Olin Cook is in charge of all Tech ' s federal programs Vice President Olin Cook Olin Cook came to Tech last year to fill a newly created position in administration. He is the Executive Vice President and is in charge of grants, governmental relations, and institutional research. He received his Master ' s of Education at Emory University at Atlanta, Georgia, his Doctor of Education at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. He was formerly the Di- rector of the Department of Higher Educa- tion (formerly the Commission on Coordina- tion of Higher Education Finance). Dr. Cook said, " hope to work with new program needs, stimulate interest in outside funding, and deal with federal and state agencies. I came to Tech because I believe we have a bright future. " 84 Academics Vice President Travis Adams When Travis Adams was appointed vice president for student affairs at Arkansas Tech, he said, " This appointment will give me an opportunity to work with students in a new relationship, and I look forward to the challenge that goes with the position. I was a student at Tech in the early 1950 ' s and have been a member of the faculty and staff since 1966. My real interest has been in the stu- dents of Arkansas Tech — not just at any one time but for past, present, and future.

" 1 came back to Tech in 1959, " said Bynum, " I was teaching Health and Safety courses and coaching football and track. " Bynum lived in Wilson Hall for about twelve years as housing director. " At that time they wanted the Dean of Men to be on campus, " said Bynum. In 1969, enrollment dropped off and Tech refurbished Wilson Hall and when Paine Hall was built, Bynum moved to Balkman apartments, where sev- eral faculty members stayed It was only a few more years before he was named to his present position as Dean of Students. " I ' ve really seen some changes in students in the years I ' ve been at Tech, " said Bynum. In about 1974, there was a big break in the type of students here. The children of the sixties disappeared, to be replaced with the students of today. Bynum said the difference in dress, attitude and behavior all reflected this change. Students became more academ- ically oriented and the campus settled into a college life atmosphere again.

Title III is a federal grant project to help schools like Tech obtain funding and opportunities to improve the level of administrative and educational ex- cellence. Since Tech participation began several of our administrator s and professors have been provided with the funds to attend conferences and continue their studies. Currently, Tech ' s Title III allotment stands at $300,000. Plans are underway to seek funding for a three year period beginning in the fiscal year 1981. Part of this project involves an intensive self-evaluation of Tech ' s needs and the quality of education that the students are receiving. These self-studies are con- tinuous at the University as part of its re- quirements as a fully accredited university. Arkansas Tech is the only school in the con- ference that has never lost its accreditation since it was recognized as a junior college in the 1930 ' s. Title III funds also help fund grant writing seminars during which the basics in the de- velopment of proposals were discussed and an overview of Federal programs given. The grant has also helped committees complete work on a long-range plan. Com- mittee members prepared a paper, " A Backdrop for Planning " which will be utilized by all groups working in the plan- ning process at the University. Basically the Title III fundings is reflected in four major areas: administrative de- velopment, student services, faculty de- velopment, and curriculum improvement. With the additional grant, Tech will con- tinue its growth for the future.

Her job in the Student Affairs Office at first glance looks like traffic control. With all the students who go through this office on a daily basis, it is not surprising that she rec- ognizes most of them. She is fre- quently asked to identify a student in a picture and six out of ten times she knows who they are. " Students go through here so often, that after awhile we become friends, " she said. Mrs. Miller also keeps the calendar for the organizations. The big book of dates with papers falling out can al- ways be found on her desk so students find her a wonderful source of what ' s happening around campus. " I get very involved in cam- pus life, " said Mrs. Miller, " when you keep the calendar of events, you get wrapped up in the excitement of campus life. " Mrs. Miller began working at Tech in 1976 as secretary to the Associate Dean of Stu- dents. Her duties included working with campus organizations, scheduling events in the universities facilities, and handling ap- pointment flow for the suite of offices. Whether it is a student seeking clarification on the housing rules, or groups seeking to set up the most ostentacious festival, Mrs. Miller has the situation under control. " Working with the students is the most enjoyable part of my job, " she commented. " My husband was in coaching for several years and we dealt with young people all the time. I came to enjoy them, and helping them with their problems. It is the most satisfying part of the work that we all do over here. " Mrs. Miller is a native of Dover, Ark. She said that she and her family was pleased that they could back here to live. Her husband, Joe Miller is coordinator for the nine county area office for Federal Housing. Their daughter, Kimberly is a senior physics student here and their son, Kevin, plans to seek a pre-veterinary degree at Tech upon graduation from Dover High School.

She was hired as the secretary in the social science department with the late Dr. P. K. Merrill as the department head. She continued to work in that department under Dr Tom Wilson, Dr. Richard Morrisey, and Dr. Ken- neth Walker as department heads. At that time, 1973 Dr. Harlan McMillan, as dean of the School of Arts and Sci- ences, requested that Mrs. Small be transferred to the dean ' s office. When Dr. McMillan retired as dean in 1978, the school was divided into the School of Physical and Life Sciences and the School of Liberal and Fine Arts. Dr. Charles Russell was dean dur- ing the 1978-79 school year. Dr. Wil- liam Seidensticker became the dean in 1979. " Dean Small " , as she is affectionately re- ferred to, is an institution within an institu- tion. She is an infallible source of help to students and faculty alike. As Dr. Seiden- sticker commented recently, " Her value to the School of Liberal and Fine Arts was evi- dent during the 1979 Fall Semester. Although I had accepted the appointment as LFA dean in September, I was unable to take office until January, 1980. In this interim period, Mrs. Small managed the day-to-day ac- tivities in the dean ' s office. When I arrived in January, it was obvious that she had done an excellent job. It made my transition to the campus all the easier. " Mrs. Small enjoys dealing with students and faculty and feels that Tech is a wonderful place to work. She always has a friendly word for formerTech students. " I have seen a lot of changes at Tech in the past 15 years, and I feel most of them have improved Tech, " says Mrs. Small. " Student enrollment has more than doubled. If a student wants a good edu- cation, he can receive it at Tech. The faculty and staff that I have worked with are really interested in the students and will help them in any way that they can. " Mrs. Small and her husband, Chester, who is head electrician at the Dardanelle Dam, have three children — David, Cathy, and Ellen Kay. All received their baccalaureate degree from Tech. David received his Mas- ter ' s of Education degree in math from Tech in 1977. He teaches math at Plainview-Rover High School. Cathy teaches business courses at Lincoln High School and Ellen Kay is a medical technologist at the Conway County Hospital in Morrilton. A native of Holly Springs, Ark., (near Camden) and a graduate of Sparkman High School, Mrs. Small moved to Russellville from New Iberia, La., in 1964. Her hobbies are sewing and playing bridge. Commendations about Mrs. Small were not infrequent and possibly best stated by Dr. Seidensticker: " Mrs. Small is not only an efficient and conscientious secretary but a warm and generous person. She has earned the respect and affection of those she works with.

Writers Abound In Department By Susan Stoddard Creative writing is more than a course title to the professors at Tech who teach it. Arkansas Tech University ' s English De- partment has more published writers in its ranks than any other state supported college of comparable size. Two of the most outstanding examples of the literary talent among the faculty here are Francis Gwaltney and B. Clarence Hall. Mr. Gwaltney, associate professor of English, brought with him to Tech many years of writing experience. He began his careeras a novelist with the publication of The Yellar Haw Summer in 1954. He has since published eight more novels, some of the better known of which are, Idols and Axle Grease, and Destiny ' s Chickens. Parts of these novels have been anthologized in various literary selections. In addition to his novels and short stories Professor Gwaltney was a freelance script writer on the West Coast for several years. He wrote for such programs as: The Alfred Hitchcock Show, The Fugitive, and Dr. Kildare. His most recent efforts have been in the direction of the cinema. Mr. Gwaltney is cur- rently involved in the writing and produc- tion of films with an independent movie group. Their first effort, completed in 1980 is entitled High Pursuit. It is the story of the criminal career of Cherokee Bill. The action of the film takes place in Northwestern Ar- kansas during the life and times of Judge Parker and The Fort Smith " hanging court. " It was filmed in the locales that the story takes place. In an interview about High Pur- suit, Mr. Gwaltney said, " It is a popcorn movie, intended for the drive-in circuit. We used local people for the bit parts and extras and had a lot of fun with it. " The group ' s next project, which Mr. Gwaltney is currently scripting is entitled Point Remove. Clarence Hill, an instructor at Tech since 1961, published his third novel this year. His book, Keepers of the Feast, is the story of an oil dynasty In his own words, " The Texas Trinity; politics, law, and the sporting life. " The appearance of the novel sparked Mr. Hall ' s interview on the television program, " Arkansas Today " and an autographing session at the Territorial Capitol as promotion for it. His first novel the Nashville Lady has not lain idly on the shelf either. This year it was chosen as the subject for a movie, tentatively entitledn Blue Bells. Mr. Hall was asked to write the screen play, and was more than happy to dis- cuss the project. " I hope that it will make enough money to send me to the Riviera for the summer. " They both take their position of en- couraging their students seriously. Both were instrumental in the found- ing, ten years ago of Tech ' s literary publication, The Five Cent Cigar. Their own experiences in the field have proven invaluable to the students in the English and Creative Writing pro- gram. Their work and faith has appar- ently paid off. Several of their stu- dents, former and current, are pub- lished writers in some field. 102 Academics Faculty Anders, Volta Asst.

Here at Tech, it has left many people stumbling when try- ing to pronounce it. Brigitte is an old German name, and like her name, Brigitte is from Germany. During her stay, she will be trying to promote an interest in Germany by con- ducting lectures and courses on life in Germany. Brigitte ' s stay at Tech is under the aus- pices of the Fullbright Teacher Exchange Program. She is switching places with John Burch, assistant professor of Foreign Languages at ATU. " This year 21 German teachers switched with an equal number of Ameri- can teachers, " explained Brigitte. " Nor- mally they do not only switch jobs, but the places where they live, and sometimes even cars. I still get paid by the German government and Mr. Burch is paid by Tech. Speaking English primarily with stu- dents in a classroom, as Brigitte does, the vocabulary employed is very small, and one can become very rusty as she has learned this year. " There are certain fields that you never cover m school, like the many little things in everyday life, and suddenly I find that I need some word and 1 can ' t think of it, " said Brigitte Brigitte is very pleased that she was one of only 3 out of the 21 exchange teachers who were selected to teach on a college level. The rest are teaching in high schools. In Germany, students attending the uni- versities attend free. " It is a different system. I would not want to say which system is superior or inferior. It is just different, and each serves a different function. I think in American universities you find both excel- lent students and also intermediate students. In Germany, many students are kept out of the institutions. " " Here. " Brigitte said, " everyone has a chance to improve his or her education, which I think is very important. " Overall, though there are some little dif- ferences, the schools in Germany and America are more alike than they are dif- ferent. In Brigitte ' s own words, " Germany has been quite a lot Americanized. " Faculty Hall, Iva Inst. of Nursing Hamm. Jack ' Assoc. Prof of Mathematics Hark, Charu ' Asst.

He is the instructor in such classes as den- drology, (trees), aquatic plants, plant tax- onomy, general botany, plant morphology, and economic botany. Dr. Tucker attended the University of North Carolina, and the University of Ar- kansas. He received his Ph.D. in 1976, and came to ATU in 1966. He has remained here since that time except for the 1977-78 school year, when, taking a leave of absence from ATU, he helped in the Section 404 regula- tion ' s research of the U.S. Corps of Engineers at the Waterways Experiment Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi. This Corps ' " labora- tory " is the chief station for wetlands re- search — their plant and animal life, hydro- logical acti on, and their boundaries. They constructed models and ran mock waterways through them. In the summer of 1980, he spent 2 Vi weeks mainly leading seminars and teaching ses- sions for federal employees of natural re- source bureaus in wetlands management. He has always had an interest in " wetland plant communities " and this was a real treat. He hopes to maintain a working relationship with the Corps. In the Spring of 1978, he was appointed by Governor Clinton to the Board of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission. Dr. Tucker received this honor and re- sponsibility as a result of his assistance to the Commission since its inception in 1973. The purpose of the Commission is to establish natural areas in the state, and aid in research and the publication of in- formation about Arkansas. The Tech her- barium is being used to store many com- mon and rare plants collected by the Commission around our state. Dr. Tucker also has been instrumental in forming the newly organized Arkansas Native Plant Society aimed at making the public more aware of Arkansas endemic (native) flora. His future plans do include staying at Arkansas Tech, and he ' ll not " spoonfeed " anyone, requiring much field-work and self -motivation in his students. Faculty Hudson, E. E Assoc.

After re- ceiving her masters degree in theatre and communications, Mrs. Lombardo spent a year with the Straw Hat Players in Tennessee, as one of the company ' s regular actresses. Aftera short stint as a teacher in Mississippi, she moved on to radio. She began as a disc jockev with station WKLX in Raleigh, North Carolina. " The pay was minute and the hours terrible but it was a great learn- ing experience. " Mrs. Lombardo moved up to anchoring a local talk show and eventually newsperson for another Raleigh station WRAL. This was the facet of radio she most enjoyed. When she moved to the Russellville area in 1978 she became the reporter and news anchor- person for KCAB- KWKK as Wendy Waite. While still working for local radio stations Mrs. Lombardo began teaching a public speaking course at night. Fall 1980 Mrs. Lombardo joined the ATU faculty, teaching drama courses. Her duties included supervising campus productions and director of ATU Little Theatre. She made her directorial debut in the Fall 1980 Little Theatre production of Richard Nash ' s ' Rainmaker.

K By Judy Clark While driving around the perimeter of Tech campus, many people are surprised to see what looks like a farm bordering one side of the campus. They are often even more surprised to learn that the farm belongs to Tech and is associated with one of the most influential, yet least known departments on campus. The agriculture department is tucked away at the end of a wing in Dean Hall. Though seemingly unobtrusive, the agriculture de- partment has a large impact on local indus- try. Ninety-five percent of the department graduates go to work for industry, including such local industries and agencies as Valmac, Morton ' s Foods, Sears Roebuck, Darrel Feed, the Extension Service, and the Soil Conservation Service. The local industries and the government are very supportive of the agriculture department as well. Each year, 16 to 20 scholarships of $400.00 to $600.00 are made available to agriculture ma- jors. The agriculture department contributes its share of prospective veterinarians also. The department is very proud that, so far, every pre-vet graduate fully qualified in every re- spect has been accepted into vet school. This year the agriculture department has 16 seniors and 121 majors. These students may work towards a BS degree in agri- business with a major in poultry business, agri-finance, or general agriculture business. Other students participate in the pre-vet and pre-forestry programs. The department hopes to be able to install a major or option in horticulture business soon. The curriculum in the agriculture depart- ment is quite liberal. The students are ex- posed to a broad spectrum of courses that will help them in their careers. If a student has greater interest in some areas than others, he may take courses to emphasize these areas. Raymon Nance, a sophomore agri-busi- ness major and president of the Agri Club, says, " Such a large range of subjects is taught in the curriculum that we are ready for any- thing. Our special interests can be catered to. Much practical experiences supplements the curriculum. Whenever possible, the ATU farm is used to show students the practicial A Tech student experiments with different items in the chemistry laboratory 110 Academics aspects of agri-business. ATU owns 200 acres on the west side of campus plus 1M) acres on the east side of N. Arkansas. Three herds are maintained: a dairy herd, an experimental beef herd, and a registered polled hereford beef herd. Dr. Kenneth Pippin, head of the agricul- ture department, says, " The demand for agri-business majors is overwhelming. It ' s a students ' market for jobs. Our big problems is getting graduates to leave Russellville and Arkansas, but I think you ' ll find that true of most Tech students. There are two clubs on campus for agricul- ture students, the Agri Club, and the Rodeo Club. Both are active on campus and the Rodeo Club participates in intercollegiate rodeos in the Ozark district. The agriculture department is one of the most closely knit departments on campus. Dr. Pippin says, " With a department this size we keep in constant contact with the students. If they have problems, we find out almost immediately. A lot of informal con- sulting and visitation goes on. " As Tommy Green, a pre-vet major says, " I came to Tech because it seemed to have a better program; you could get more indi- vidual attention, and the people here really care. " If farming isn ' t a student ' s dream, fisheries and wildlife mavbe. ATU also offers a well- known fisheries and wildlife department. " It ' s not all hunting and fishing ... or a highly technical field . . . people don ' t realize that it ' s not all fun and games . . . you ' re not tied down to a desk . . . hard work, but I like it. " These comments are typ- ical of what you may hear from students and teachers in the Arkansas Tech University Fisheries and Wildlife Department. ATU offers the only fisheries and wildlife program in the state. The program is de- signed to prepare qualified field and re- search biologists, and also provide a strong background for students who wish to get graduate education. The program offers the BS degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Man- agement, and an Interpretive Specialist Op- tion is available The Fisheries and Wildlife department has 12 graduates this year and SO to 90 majors. These students put in an extraordinary amount of time in field work. In the first two years of school, F W majors take the basic biology, chemistry, and physics courses. However, in the junior and senior years, nearly all the courses are lab courses. This year the department signed a contract with AP L to study the fish population in Lake Dardanelle. This program provides ex- cellent training and experience for students who assist on it Randy Easley, a junior F W major feels that the great amount of experience Tech students get, and the working experience of many department teachers gives an advan- tage to Tech graduates in the job market. Mr. Buford Tatum, head of the F W de- partment, and a veteran of 19 years in fish and game organizations, has this comment to make: " Experienced teachers know what employers look for. " He also says, " Many of our former stu- dents often help new graduates find jobs. They must think well of their education or they wouldn ' t want others of their back- ground. " The Fisheries Wildlife department also does much work for the public ' s benefit. Every summer, a five-week in-service training course is given for new employees of (cont on page 1121 Dr Rolland Shaw stands in front of his class as he directs the University community choir Mrs Joan Wainnght shows her students different in- struments in her Music Theory class Buford Tatum is shown here teaching one of his Fisheries and Wildlife classes Departments Hi 1 14 Honors Hone- Who ' s Who George Richison My name is George Richison. I am a senior biology major with hopes of even- tually attending medical school. I was raised on a farm outside Danville, Arkan- sas. This was where I started hunting, fishing, camping, and participated in athletics, which are still my favorite hobbies. This was also where I learned to appreciate the three most important things in my life: mv Lord, my family and my friends. After one year at the University of Ar- kansas, I came to Tech. The thing I noticed first, when I came to Tech, was the friend- liness of the students, teachers and ad- ministration. At Tech, I am a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, where I served as rush chairman for a year; I am president of Blue Key, and I am active at the Wesley Foundation. Tim Bourne My name is Timothy Frederick Bourne. I am a 20 year old biology major from Russellville. My birthplace was Pine Bluff, Arkansas where I resided for over nine years but Russellville has been my family ' s home for about the past eleven years. I am attending Tech because of its superior biology department and as Tech is a state school, it is financially feasible for me to attend. I am an individual for the same reasons everyone else is an individual. God created me as an individual. Mv thought processes are controlled by my environ- ment and my daily experiences are com- pletely different from anyone else ' s, my unique personality is created. I am an outdoors enthusiast; I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing, and I have an avid interest in the flora of Ar- kansas. I work in the herbarium at Tech and also do some work in the greenhouse. I am a member of the Arkansas Native Plant Society, the ATU Botanical Society, and the Fr. Joe Lauro Council of the Knights of Columbus in Russellville. Dusqua Phillips I am a 20 year old senior accounting major from Russellville. While at Tech I have seen active as president and vice- president of Delta Zeta Sorority. I am also involved as treasurer of the Student Gov- ernment Association, the accounting club, Cardinal Key honor sorority, and Lambda Chi Alpha Crescent Girl. I twirled for two years with the ATU Band and was majorette captain. I was nomi- nated for Queen of Hearts and was 4th runner-up in the Miss Tech Pageant. In Mav I will graduate and start working for Russell Brown and Company in Little Rock. I have enjoyed Tech very much and love the small school atmosphere. I think the faculty is great and the students of Tech have a whole lot going for them. 116 Honors Darrell Amos 1 am a post-baccalaureate student from Lavaca, doing extended studies in my de- gree field, biology- 1 chose to attend Tech because I wanted to remain a person in- stead ol becoming just another number on a computer card. Besides, Tech offers a quality education in a more or less friendly atmosphere that is conducive to both study and enjoying life. 1 belong to Sigma Phi Epsilon and Blue Key Fraternities; sing in the University Choir, and try to help out wherever I ' m needed. As far as a philosophy of life goes, I really don ' t have one. I just try to keep a phrase in mind that my grandmother told me long ago — " Be free; be whatever you want to be, do whatever you want to do, as long as you don ' t hurt anybody. " I also firmly believe that we mustn ' t be afraid to try something new. Who knows, it might be good. I like swimming, horseback riding, golf, and tennis. One unusual talent that I ' ve managed to pick up and have a fair amount of success at is fashion design. This absolutely fascinates me, but I really prefer to work with women ' s clothing. Sherri Powell My name is Sherri Powell. I am an ac- counting major from Van Buren, Arkan- sas, planning to take the CPA Examina- tion in May. I am attending Arkansas Tech University because of its outstand- ing Accounting Department which con- tains well qualified instructors and the respect of employers in Arkansas and in surrounding states. I have been active on the Tech campus in the following clubs: Zeta Tau Alpha, Scholastic Achievement Chairman; Ac- counting Club; Cardinal Key; Alpha Chi; Lambda Chi Alpha Crescent Girls. I am a former Lambda Chi Alpha Sweetheart, Accounting Club book and tuition schol- arship recipient, outstanding student in accounting, and was selected to be in Who ' s Who in 1980. Who ' s Who Wanda Johnston My name is Wanda Jean Johnston. I live at Norman, Arkansas. My major is Ac- counting. 1 am the secretary-treasurer of Cardinal Key Honor Society, and treas- urer of the Accounting Club. I am also a resident assistant at Roush Dorm where I am also on the dorm council. I have also been a member of Phi Beta Lambda Busi- ness Club. I won the Outstanding Junior Accounting Award. I love going to Tech, and I feel I have had two outstanding teachers: Mr. Dale Corley and Mr. Royce Jones, who have prepared the seniors for accounting jobs very well. Who ' s who 117 Who ' s Who Tim Rhodes I am a Business Administration major from Ft smith I chose to attend Tech at the end of my senior year in high school. At that point, I had decided to pursue a career as an officer in the U.S. Army. I decided to attend Tech because they had and still do have the finest R.O.T.C. de- partment in the state of Arkansas. 1 am the Corps Commander at Tech this year and will be commissioned this spring as a Medical Service Lieutenant. I attended the Air Assault school last May where I learned Helicopter Rappelling. From there I learned basic officer skills at Ft. Riley, Kansas. My favorite hobbies are bass fishing, hunting, baseball, hotdogs, applie pies, and Chevrolet. I am very pleased with my results at Tech, and I feel the education I ' ve received at Tech will aid me enormously as I strive to achieve my life long goals. Tim Sherman Hailing from St. Petersburg, Florida, I am frequently asked, " Why Tech? " It goes back to my high school days in North Lit- tle Rock when 1 planned to enter Tech ' s Fish Wildlife Program. I was in my senior year when my family moved to Florida, temporarily changing the strate- gy. After two years I transferred back to Tech to continue with my earlier plans. Soon I came to realize that my idealistic interpretation of the field was far from the mark. It seemed that it was more a field of politics than science. Although I did not fancy myself a politician, I did enjoy the Life Sciences and felt that Tech had as much to offer as any school in the country in undergraduate studies. I changed my major to Biology and now as I near the goal, I must say that, although the facili- ties are limited, the faculty makes up the difference and then some. Tech is very fortunate in this respect. I have few com- plaints. Outside of class I ' m involved in Blue Key, ATU Botanical Society as vice presi- dent and have been selected to be a senior fellow this year. Kyle Turner I am a junior business administration economics and finance major. I am from Prairie Grove, (12 miles west of Fayet- teville) where I graduated with highest honors in 1978. The reason that I came to Tech was that coming from a small school like Prairie Grove, I liked the atmosphere here at Tech. Another reason was that my father, Jerry Turner, had gone to school here and later served on the Board to Trus- tees here. What I feel makes me an individual is that I get along with people pretty well and am genuinely concerned about peo- ple around me. I feel that if I treat people like I ' d want to be treated, then things are going to workout for the best for all of us. My activities here include: Lambda Chi Alpha, Zeta Tau Alpha Big Brother, Stu- dent Government Association, Junior Class president, selected as one of the " Top Ten Males " , Miss ATU judges chairman, Newman Club. Mv hobbies in- clude sports, music, dancing, going to movies and parties, and just plain goofing off! 118 Hc Ruth Couser I was born in Lawrence, Kansas on Jan. 2 1959. I moved to Russellville at the age of 6, and attended Crawford Elementary School. I began my career at ATU in 1977, ma- joring in commercial art. 1 believe that Tech has a fine art department and I would like to more emphasis placed on the arts here. My hobbies are drawing, painting, singing and playing piano, organ and harpsichord. I love animals and nature, the Lord made it for us to appreciate. I am a member of the Wesley Founda- tion Circuit Riders and a student board member for the Foundation. Who ' s Who Kim Graves My major field of study at ATU is Chemistry. I am a cheerleader, Golddig- ger, member of Alpha Chi Honor Society and president of the Chemistry Pre-Medi- cal Club. In 1979-80, I received the academic achievement award in Chemis- try. I attended ATU primarily because of the excellent chemistry department and the individual attention a student receives from their professors. After graduation, I plan to attend the University of Arkansas Medical School and obtain my M.D. in Family Practice. Kerri Sawyer I graduated from Northside High School in Ft. Smith in 1978. I decided to attend ATU because of its excellent aca- demic program. After visiting Tech several times I realized the atmosphere was for me I didn ' t feel any kind of peer pressure. My major is Commercial Art. I plan on entering the field of advertising after graduation in May of 1982. Since I have been at Tech I have become a member of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority. 1 have held the office of treasurer and am presently president. I am also a Southern Belle of Kappa Alpha Order. 1 was on the Homecoming court in 1979 and a member of the German Club. My favorite sports to participate in are racquetball and snow skiing. In my free time I like to draw. Who ' s who 119 Who ' s Who Charles Dunlap I am Charles Richard Dunlap 1 am a Computer Science major from Russell- ville. I think ATU is a great university. It has an outstanding faculty and the best band in the state of Arkansas. The Com- puter Science department is also excel- lent 1 feel that I am an individual because of my unique interests. I am involved in Concert Choir, Cham- ber Choir, and the Community Choir and will be going on the 1981 Chamber Choir European Tour I am also the Drum Ma]or and Pep Band Director of the ATU Band I am chapter president of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and Guiding Spirit and Parliamentarian of Kappa Kappa Psi.

Jill Barber My name is Jill Barber and I am a 21 year old senior majoring in Elementary Educa- tion. My home town is North Little Rock, Arkansas and I came to Tech because of its size, location and friendly atmosphere. I think that what makes me an indi- vidual is my ability to work as a member of a group and share its beliefs and values, and at the same time, be an individual with my own personal set of beliefs and values. My activities include Delta Zeta in which I have held the offices of Guard, Scholarship Chairman and Correspond- ing Secretary. I am a Lambda Chi Alpha Crescent Girl and was Lambda Chi Sweetheart in 1979-80. Beth Floyd I chose ATU because I wanted to go to a smaller school where I would be a name and not just a number. The greatest edu- cational experiences that I have received, however, have come from traveling. Traveling gives you the freedom to ex- perienc e things that school can only tell you about. After I graduate from Tech, I intend to go to graduate school as well as teach; mv career goal is to teach in a university. I enjoy studying politics, and I hope to at- tend the 1984 Democratic National Con- vention. 120 Honors John Guetzlaff Hi, I ' m [ohn Guetzlaff. 1 was born and raised in Ohio, California, and Missouri, before I ever tasted the Arkansas experi- ence. I find Arkansas exhilarating when I get the chance to enjoy its great outdoors. M activities include: member of Blue Key, Member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, serv- ing as academic chairman, on pledge board, and secretary; SGA, serving as Vice President, senator, SAB executive, and on the Campus Improvement Board; and inUBC, serving as present Chairman. Some of the things 1 find enjoyable in my college experience are: the things that I can find to do at Tech; the challenge of creating my own entertainment and fun, whether it be with the members of the fraternity or just out alone on my bike; and probably best of all, the people I can associate with. Tech, I could say in general, has pro- vided me with a broad range of horizons that 1 can draw on the rest of my life. iimiiKi Ken Fritsche 1 am a junior from Booneville, Arkan- sas, majoring in geology. My reasons for coming to Tech are because it has a good geology department, and the school is rel- atively small enough to get to know everyone. I enjoy water skiing, motorcycl- ing, camping, hiking, hunting and most any other outdoor activities. I belong to the following organizations: Lambda Chi Alpha, Geology Club, Newman Club, Blue Key Honor Fraternity, and I am a Delta Zeta Big Brother. I am an individual because I have my own life and responsibilities that I try to handle in a just and moral way. I try to keep a positive attitude on everything I do. I think Tech is a very good school because of the individuality that one can have on this campus. Tech has many fine people who are teachers as well as stu- dents and this makes me proud to be a part of Tech. Who ' s Who Juanita Langford I ' m from Hector and my major is Ele- mentary Education. One reason that I ' m going to Tech is because it ' s close to home. Another reason is that I have so many good friends here. The students and teachers are very friendly This makes it very pleasant for me. I really enjoy my major and am looking forward to teach- ing. The main reason is because I love children so much. I ' m an ATU cheerleader, which I really enjoy. I ' m also a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority. I ' m a Southern Belle for the Kappa Alpha Fraternity. I ' ve really made some very close friends by being involved in these fraternities. It makes college life much more exciting. Who ' s .-. Who ' s Who Pat Huckeby A junior journalism major from Bald Knob, Arkansas. 1 edit the campus paper while working as the Russellville stringer for the Arkansas Democrat. I am also pres- ident of the Society of Collegiate Jour- nalists, first vice-president of the Theatre Guild, and past president of the French Club for last semester. I came to Tech for a math contest my sophomore year in high school and in- stantly fell in love with the campus, stu- dents, faculty and administration. 1 be- lieve Tech has one of the best educational programs in the state and so 1 constantly recruit among my friends at home. Life at Tech keeps me busy with my many activities, friends, and classes but I try to maintain a grade point of at least 3.00 or better. To me, Tech is the most important step before going on to face the world. This is a step that will have changed my life forever, one I can ' t forget, and one I recommend to everyone. Beth Potter My name is Beth Potter. I am a mathe- matics major from Walnut Ridge, Arkan- sas. I do not plan to teach math, however my goal is to go into math-related work in industry or business. My hobbies are reading and sewing and I enjoy working with people, particularly small children. While at Tech, I have been active in many activities. I was selected for Cardi- nal Key Honor Society and served as Vice-President. I have also been active in the Newman Club, serving as President for two years and Math Club, serving as Secretary-Treasurer for two and one half years. I also enjoy music and am a mem- ber of the ATU Marching and Symphonic Bands. As a Resident Assistant in Bryan Hall, I take part in many dorm activities and meet many people. I enjoy being at Tech largely due to the friendly atmosphere of both students and teachers. Martha Waggoner I enrolled at Arkansas Tech after gradu- ating from Stuttgart High School in 1977. My decision to pursue my math degree at Tech was based on the size of the school. When visiting larger schools, I didn ' t like the way students were swallowed up in the system. There is more concern for the individual here at Tech. While at Tech, I ' ve gotten involved with quite a few of those individuals. Student government, dorm government, tutoring sessions, and student activities seem to have taken up more of my time than aca- demics. And, as much as I complained, I loved every minute of it. Four years ago, I thought I would leave Tech with my degree. I was wrong. When I leave here, along with me will go a part of this school and the people that were here, and that is more valuable than any degree. 122 Honors Gaylene LaBlanc My name is Gaylene 1 eBlanc Since tins ismy fifth year at Tech, I must enjoy it . . . and I do! Out of all the campuses I have been to, lech is the friendliest and is well on its way to the most beautiful. Activities arc open to anyone interested and it ' s so easy to become involved. 1 have been the president of several organizations includ- ing Phi Mu Sorority, the Botanical Soci- ety, Tau Beta Sigma, Cardinal Key Na- tional Society, and mv sophomore class 1 have been on the Student Government Association for four years as both a class and dorm representative. Last spring I had the honor of being voted Queen of 1 learts b the student body and also l hit standing Senior Women (Marget Young Award) 1 have been a resident assistant for four years and even a resident director for a few weeks this semester. I have also been involved with the band, choir, Alpha Chi, Student Activities Board, and Who ' s Who for three years. Tech has defi- nitely given me the chance to experience new and different activities to name a few. My major is Medical Technology and in July I will attend Sparks Regional Medical Center to finish mv degree for one year when I ' ll graduate from Tech in 1982. My hometown is Mena, Arkansas. Dennis Griffin My name is Dennis Griffin. I am a senior Music Education major from Spnngdale, Arkansas. Arkansas Tech University was my choice of colleges above Ouachita Baptist University and the University of Arkansas. The main rea- son I chose ATU was the personality of Dr. Rolland Shaw. Dr. Shaw impressed me far above the faculty at the other two schools. I knew I could learn and progress in music studying under such a person. A music major at ATU is a very busy person, but I have been able, with the cooperation of teachers and friends, to enjoy the Brotherhood of the Lambda Chi Alpha, and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a pro- fessional men ' s music fraternity. I am the one and only music major in Lambda Chi Alpha but I feel no way as an outcast. I have grown to love and appreciate every member. I plan to continue my music singing for my Lord Jesus Christ in some form of gos- pel music. I now sing lead for a gospel trio stationed in Russellville and love every minute of it. Who ' s Who Becky Moore My name is Rebecca (Becky) Sue Moore I am a graduate of Tans 1 ligh School and a hometown girl of Paris.

Dancing, horse- back riding, tennis and talking are my favorite pastimes. 1 also enjoy doing things I have never done before and a future goal is to sky due I enjoy being around people; nice, laughing people. This is the one thing I like best about Tech — the people. Every- one 1 have met in the Tech community has enlightened my life in some way and has helped me to become the individual I am. For that, I will always be thankful. 1 chose Tech because all my friends were coming to Tech, but I knew I could not have made a better decision. 1 have received an excellent education, both aca- demically and socially. I have been in- volved in many organizations. ' Who ' s Who 123 Who ' s Who Kenny Bell My name is Kenny Bell. My major is P.E. I am from Danville, Arkansas.

I am currently a member of the Student Senate, Phi Mu Women ' s Soror- ltv. Alpha Chi and Cardinal Key Honor Societies, and the Math Club. I hold the position of Parliamentarian on the Senate. I chose Tech because of the atmosphere of friendliness, and because of the wide variety of Physics courses offered. Physics and astronomy have always been my fa- vorite hobbies and I ' m never happier than when I ' m curled up with science or sci- ence fiction books. Reading of any kind is my favorite pastime, but I prefer science fiction, gothic or mystery novels to any other types. My other hobbies include sewing, baking, oil painting and writing short stories. 124 Honors Sherry Raney I am a Physical Education major from Bruno-Pyatt. I came to ATU on a scholar- ship to play basketball. I have been All- AVVISA for the past two years, All-Region and All-American the past vear in basket- ball. I also play volleyball, and I made All-AWISA this vear. I am pleased that I made the decision to come to Tech. The students and faculty are friendly and I really enjov living on campus. Mv favorite part of Tech is Tucker Coliseum. In my spare time, I enjoy doing other things like plaving tennis, bowling, shopping. My future plans include be- coming a P.E. teacher and getting mar- ried. I would like to teach junior high and high school students at a fairly large school. Linda Ballard 1 am an office management major from Mountainburg. I decided to attend ATU because of the friendliness and helpful- ness of the counselors, faculty and stu- dents when I visited the campus. While at Tech, I have been president of the Baptist Student Union, president of Phi Beta Lambda Business Fraternity, a member of Cardinal Key Honor Society, and have participated in intramural basketball. After graduation from Tech, I plan on working toward my Master ' s Degree in Business Administration and will seek employment in the Ft. Smith area. I want to thank all my instructors and friends, especially the gang from " our room, " for making these past few years at Tech both enjoyable and memorable. Who ' s Who Ken Boyle I am from Brinkley and a Park Adminis- tration ma|or. The reason I came to Arkan- sas Tech was to pursue a career in R P. My hobbies include outdoor activities and photography. I am currently the chairman of the Stu- dent Activities Board, a member of the SGA executive committee, a member of Blue Key and Controller of Sigma Phi Ep- silon. I am also currently a Phi Mu Big Brother I feel I am myself because of my beliefs and sticking to them A person can only be himself if he is what he wants to be and lives that life. 1 feel Arkansas Tech is a sound academ- ic institution with perhaps too much of a general overall conservative attitude. Most instructors and administrators care about Tech and the students, while the students have a good feeling about each other. This accounts for the warmth and friendliness on campus. Who ' s who 125 Who ' s Who Phyllis Cook My name is Phyllis Cook. 1 have been attending Arkansas Tech University since the fall of 1977, and I will graduate in May of 1981 with a B.S. in biology.

During my years at ATU, I have been active in social and governmental organi- zations including Phi Mu, Tau Beta Sigma, Student Activities Board, Student Government Association, Cardinal Key, and Panhellenic Council. In addition to studies in the scientific field, I am continuting in the study of keyboard instruments. I have enjoyed teaching both piano and organ lessons while I ' ve been at Tech.

My experience in recreation includes volunteer work with ARVAC Head Start Center and Lakehouse, and working as a counselor at Girl Scout Camp. Some of my interests are theatre, music, and outdoor activities such as hiking, horseback rid- ing and canoeing. I really enjoy being at Tech. It ' s a change of pace from the city. The Southern ways are a new experience for a born and bred Yankee like myself. I like it here a lot, but I find the pervading mood of disinterest and apathy rather disappointing.

I hope to go on for my Doctorate, and probably work with physically disabled people or juvenile delinquents. College is very important in my life. I ' ll always treasure the wonderful memories and the many friends I have made. 126 Honors Ken Kennedy My name is Ken Kennedy and I ' m a senior Parks Administration major from Camden, Arkansas. I have one sister and three brothers all older than myself. The reason that I ' m going to Arkansas Tech is because I like the small school atmosphere because you can get to know other stu- dents easier because you see the same ones everyday instead of new ones every- day like at a larger school. I came to Tech also because the people were so friendly when I came to visit. I ' m involved in Stu- dent Government, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, Delta Zeta Big Brother, Senior Class President, cheerleader and in the Big Brother program for juvenile delin- quents.

" The ceremony was different from the usual commencement tradition because the gradu- ates were not told they were inheriting a legacy of hallowed institutions, but that their futures were filled with challenges and prob- lems without precedent. Throughout his speech, he stressed to the students that a good education was an im- portant factor that would someday deter- mine their futures. Congressman Hammer- schmidt said, " as you look to the future, a key element of success in dealing with what- ever alarms and adventures you may en- counter, is an elementary humility and will- ingness to seek the truth. You will have to formulate rational and just programs to solve the problems thrown up by turbulent events beyond today ' s horizon. " He concluded by saying, " you of a young- er generation will guide the country in a number of ways and few things will be ele- mental and yet so vital to our future as what you can contribute toward the national at- titude above government.

Both football teams were undefeated in conference action and tied for first place in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference, which only added more intensity to the rivalry between Tech and UCA. School spirit seem to overflow from the campus out into the community, with everyone catching Wonder Boy fever. The main event of UCA week was the pep rally and bonfire, sponsored by the cheerleaders. Everyone took part in the event, urging the Wonder Boys on to victory. Speeches were made by members of the football team and faculty, and music was provided by the pep band. A black casket was carried to the pep rally, representing a dead UCA Bear that had the misfortune of running into a Wonder Boy. Tom Jones, president of the Student Senate, lent his services to the occasion by allowing himself to be hit in the face with a pie when the crowd yelled loud enough. Although the Bears won the game 35-7, the Tech student body never lost the spirit and enthusiasm they had for their team. ATU cheerleaders?

The Phi Mu Carnival has been a Halloween tradition at Tech for many years. Usually held in the Student Center Ball- room on or near Halloween night. The carni- val is made up of booths sponsored by the many student organizations on campus. October 29, the Student Center Ballroom came to life with ghosts and goblins and other costumed characters as the carnvial be- gan. The members of the Phi Mu Fraternity dressed to set the atmosphere and many groups used costumes in their displays. The crowd even became involved with, among others, one young man dressed as a vampire. Admission was 50c and booths were rented for $7 to each group. There were 20 booths this year. The money was used for Project Hope, the group ' s national charity, and various campus activities. Each group used the money from its booth for its own purpose. Among this year ' s booths were a wet sponge throw with Tom Jones, student body president; Ken Boyle, SAB chairman; and Sam Smith, housing director as targets. The French Club featured paintings on their cus- tomers skin and fresh crepes filled with grape jelly. The crepes were made by Isabelle Paul, the French student tutoring at Tech. Massie Hall offered a hit-man service. They dressed as Mofia members and titled their booth, Massie Mofia. They rented water pistols for ten minutes at a time. It was a great way to get back at that guy who dumped you for your roommate.

It is a social activity only for those advanced ROTC cadets; and last of all, but not necessarily of less impor- tance, the Military Ball is a teaching vehi- cle in that it will give those c adets an idea of how to conduct themselves in similar activities that will follow in their military careers. A queen is chosen for the ball by secret ballot. She must be enrolled in the ROTC program at Tech and is chosen by all stu- dents in the ROTC program. The Tech ROTC and College of the Ozark ' s ROTC programs are combined; therefore, a queen is chosen from each school. This year ' s queens are: Kris Cover, a freshman from Tech, and Kathy Larsen a junior from C of O. Guest of honor, ATU President Ken- neth Kersh crowned the Tech queen, and Tech ' s Capt. William Harkins crowned the C of O Queen. Professor of Military Science, LTC Robert C. Lowry gave recognition to the 21 fourth-year students. After the formalities, Cadets may dance as long as they wish, but must not leave until the guest of honor leaves. Again, this is done in military fashion to acquaint the cadets with future military customs. Sue Nonis serves Swight Moore during the Spring ' 80 Military Ball.

Spring rush is held each spring and is a major function for all the sororities. Interested girls sign up for rush. All three sororities plan parties for the rushees which are held in three separate rooms Each sorority party has a specific theme. The rushees are then divided into groups and are required to attend all three parties so that they can get acquainted with girls from all of the sororities before they receive their bids and choose which group they wish to join. All of the sororities put many hours of work into planning the spring rush ac- tivities. Planning usually begins early in the fall semester. All girls are encouraged to go through rush and if they choose, to |oin a sorority. These groups help make college life easier and also usually provide many lifetime friends.

During this week the Tech campus may be mistaken for Dogpatch. One of the events sponsored by the Phi Lamb ' s during Sadie Hawkins week is the Daisy Mae look-alike contest, which is held at the Sadie Hawkins dance. Among the other activities during the week were a grow-it-show-it beard con- test, a cow patty throwing contest, and a pole climbing contest. All activities were open to all the stu- dents. This is one of the spring activities that most people look forward to and enjoy participating in.

Greek Week is sponsored annually in the spring by the Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council. The purpose of Greek Week is to publicize the Greek system to get more students involved in it. During the week there are a variety of contests between teams made up of soror- ity and fraternity members. Some of the contests include, a chariot race, a track meet, a three-legged race, and a shopping cart race. In the fall an open rush for all sororities and fraternities is held for students inter- ested in becoming involved with the Greek system.

The title of Miss Tech was not the only recognition captured by Laura during the evening competition. Laura, a lovely brown haired beauty, also won the talent competition with her piano selec- tion of " Rhapsody in Blue, " accompanied by a clarinet introduction. Although Laura did not enter a beauty pageant in high school, she once directed the Southern Bell Pageant at Fort Smith Southside. She decided to enter the Miss Tech Pageant when Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity asked her to represent them. " I almost decided to back out at the last min- ute, " Laura said, " but 1 just couldn ' t let the Lambda Chi ' s down after I told them 1 would be in the pageant. " Other winners in the Miss Arkansas Tech Pageant include: Linda Phillips, first runner up; Rhonda Sullins, second run- ner up; Linda Taylor, third runner up; and Rhonda Moore, fourth runner up. Sullins was also awarded the title of " Miss Congeniality " by her fellow contestants. The rest of the contestants in the Miss Arkansas Tech Pageant include: Donna Filosa of Milford, Massachusetts; Delia Smith of Little Rock; Tracy Norman of Russellville; Michelle Salardeau of Ola; and Paula Hart of Morrilton.

Pat Parker, Miss Arkansas Tech 1979, Ruth Couser, Miss Arkansas Tech 1978, and Shelly Ervin, first runner up in the 1978 pageant, joined their voices to do the opening number in the progTam. The participants in the Miss Tech pageant applaud as Laura ' s name is called as Miss Tech 1980 by the emcee, Tom Parker. 156 Activitie5 Miss Tech, 1980 (cont. from page 155) The Miss Arkansas Tech Pageant was sponsored by the Student Senate. Tom Jones was director of this year ' s pageant Pat Parker, Miss Arkansas Tech 1979, ended her reign the night of the competition. She was joined on stage by Ruth Couser, Miss Tech 1978, and Shelly Erwin, second runner up for last year ' s pageant. They per- formed the opening number " Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, " which established and set the mood for the pageant. The theme for the pageant was " A 1940 ' s U.S.O. Show. " Military uniforms donated by the ROTC De- partment were used to also carry out the theme. Other guests at the pageant included: Tom Parks, who by popular demand, returned as the emcee for the evening competition; Miss Arkansas 1979, Janet Holman, who crowned Laura Stanulis Miss Tech 1980. Since the Miss Tech contest is a prelimi- nary to the Miss Arkansas Pageant, Laura had no time to rest after she was crowned Miss Arkansas Tech. Laura was accompanied to the Miss Ar- kansas Pageant by Dean Mary Williamson. The pageant was held in Hot Springs in July Laura said that her only goal was to do the best she could to represent her fellow stu- dents at Tech. Laura was named fourth run- ner up in the overall competition and re- ceived a silver tray for winning the swimsuit competition in her division. Laura, when in- terviewed, told of how being in the two pag- eants changed her stereotyped view of win- ners in pageants. She was able to meet and become friends with most of the girls in the pageants. It was an experience long to be remembered by Laura. Laura intends to remain active in beauty pageants, not as a contestant but behind the scenes organizing them and even as a judge She plans to attend a workshop this spring which will make her eligible to judge Mis ' Arkansas preliminaries. Laura is also the as sistant chairperson for the 1981 Miss Arkan sas Tech Pageant and is already working on that contest, which is held in the spring Tom Parks returned to emcee the pageant Tom Jones was director of the pageant Linda Phillips, first runner up, Rhonda Sullins. second runner up, Linda Taylor, Third runner up, Rhonda Moore, fourth runner up, and Laura Stanulis, Miss Tech.

" What in the world is a Wonder Boy? " I Ins is .1 question frequently asked by not only the students at Tech but ol the resi- dents of Kussellville and many others in different communities. A Wonder Boy is not just a name but a tradition. A tradition which has meant a great deal to main tolks who were around 61 years ago es 61 years is a long time and it may be time for a change but only for the ones who were not associated with the game ot the season when the Aggies became the Wonder Boys. " Russellville — (November 21, 1919) - The Russellville Aggies out classed, out generated, out fought, and out played the Jonesboro Aggies, claimants for the State Championship, and won the game 14-0 This was how the lead paragraph in a game story sounded by W. A Wilson, staff writer for the Arkansas Gazette This was also the point in time when the Aggies became the Wonder Boys from the memorable game played at Buerkle Field. However, it was not the game itself which gave the Tech boys athletic teams the new name, but has been attributed to Henry Loeseh, sports editor of the Arkan- sas Gazette at that time. When writing the story, Loeseh made the comment that Tech has " wonder bovs " in order to defeat the lonesboro Aggies which were seeded first for the state title. The Wonder Boys name stuck and the Aggie name died.

That was 2 years after her graduation from Rus- sellville High School. With the exception of 27 hours earned at Tech in 1953 and 1954 and one semester of practice teaching, all of Mrs. Anderson ' s credits were earned through night classes, summer school and correspond- ence courses. In the fall of 1974 Mrs. Anderson en- rolled in her first night class at Tech — Western Civilization under Mr. Krueger. " I remember how scared I was during the first test I took. It had been 20 years since I had been in a classroom situation. My hands shook, " Mrs. Anderson said. " But, I made a B on that test and that gave me confidence to continue on with more classes. " " Returning to school was hard, but it had always been one of my goals and I believe everyone should have goals and try their best to achieve them, " Mrs. An- derson said. Mrs. Anderson said the hardest part about returning to school was learning how to study and how to manage her time. " I stayed very busy. Our marriage had to be strong a one to survive such a schedule, " Mrs. Anderson said. " Paul learned to vacuum and cook TV dinners. We ate a lot of TV dinners while I was in school. " In 1976 the Anderson ' s oldest son, Steve, enrolled at Tech. Although they never had any classes together, mother and son did meet each other on campus from time to time. " One day I think I embarrassed Steve, " Mrs. Anderson said. " It was snowing and cold so I brought Steve ' s toboggan to school with me. I saw him walking across campus with some friends and went run- ning after him telling him to put his to- boggan on. " " Yes. I shed a lot tears and said a lot of prayers to get me through those five years of school. But, no Tech graduate could ever be any happier to wear a cap and gown than I was.

France, assisted Mrs Louise Mobley m teaching French during the tall semester. It is her second trip to the United States and she came Here altera stay in New ork She requested the move to the South and she has decided that she likes it much better than the north. I lere the Imancial aspect is so important and the campuses are much bigger and nicer than in France, " Miss Paul said. " I am pleased to see all of these things and to take part in the American students life. " The most striking difference between French and American colleges, according to Isabelle, is the class itself. The classes in France last one hour and the students all sit at one big table. The students never con- verse with the teacher outside of the class. In the French college, each department has its own college; for example there is a Liberal Arts college, Economics college. Medical college, etc. Isabelle said the campus is much dif- ferent too. The campus area is much larger here. Also there are no police on the French campuses. She also said that students at Tech are very lucky to have a place to eat on campus. A cafe on campus there only serves coffee or tea. Isabelle said she likes Arkansas Tech " very much. " " I am impressed that one student can be involved in so many ac- tivities, " she said. " I am really having a good time. " 1.

" The marine biology trip serves as an introduction into marine biology and the costal environment, " states Dr. Raymond Couser, professor of biology. " Senior biology majors are given first preference in signing up for the trip. " The Gulf Coast Research Lab is af- filiated with the University of Mississippi and is located on a 40 acre tract on the edge of the Mississippi sound. " The trip gives the student an opportu- nity to see what marine biology is like, " said Debbie Quails, a student who made the trip. " If you like that type of study, you can continue vour education in that field. " On the trip students collect specimens in the Gulf and also earn one hour of credit in Marine Biology. Debbie has a few specimens she col- lected preserved in formaldehyde as well as having collected quite a few plant specimens. During the trip, the students go on a trolling expedition and to nearby islands. " We caught crabs, shrimp, shark, star- fish, and lots of different kinds of fish on the trolling expedition, " Debbie said " It is a lot of work but it is also fun. " Besides doing their work, the students tour the Gulf Coast Lab facilities, tour the Bellingrath Gradens on the trip down or back, and eat in Chinese and seafood res- taurants. Dr. Couser said that students who be- come more interested in marine biology may continue their study in summer school at the Gulf Coast Research Lab. Students may earn up to 18 hours of marine biology credit there with the hours counting toward a bachelor of sci- ence degree in biology at Tech. The trip this year was from April 4 to 8, with the cost being only $100, because the students stay in dormitories and do their own cooking. Dr. Couser, Dr. Gary Tucker, and E. E. Hudson accompanied the students on the trip.

Not much left to do but . - . Being a iollege student means creating your own schedule, budgeting your own time, and seeking your own entertain- ment. College offers students many ac- tivities outside of the regular curricular repertoire. Various organizations sponsor parties, the student government arranges dances and there is always dating. In a small town such as Russellville, and par- ticularly on school nights, the options of- fered a couple seem rather limited, or rather they are limited by the imaginations of the individuals involved. But again, being college students means having a knack for resourcefulness, and so between the two of them something can usually come up. In the time honored tradition of students; well, a tradition as old as man- kind itself, the couple might decide to park in a contemporary sense. A college located in a small town, in this case, has its advan- tages. In and around Russellville are many places each with its own advantage or dis- advantage that a couple wishing to go parking may make use of. Outside of the better than half dozen public parks, most of which close about 10 p.m., and the numerous rural roads and cut-offs, certain spots deserve special mention. The first and foremost in many expert ' s opinion is " Twinkleland, " (the nickname was de- rived before words relating to fairy or gay took on different meanings). Located about a mile and a half down the road from the Dardanelle Bay State Park on the hill just west of Dardanelle Country Club, " Twinkleland " started as a developers dream. The story has it that a local contrac- tor bought the land about a decade ago to build a subdivision on . He got as far as clearing the land and paving the roads when he was stopped by a tragic accident (hence the cross on top of the hill) and a more tragic zoning violation. What was left was a maze of roads and a perfect parkers paradise. This fourstar parking area has one draw back, it is occasionally closed. Another area that offers seclusion and privacy is the strip pits (pun unintentional) Teltow, Vicki Clarksville Tencleve, Susan ' Scranton Thompson, Lewis Pearsall, TX Tillery, Linda Benton Tillery, Maunce Benton Townsend, Houston Eudora Triplett, LisaJHot Springs Tritt, Pamela St Louis Trogdon, Betty ' Bruno-Pyatt Trublood, Cheryl Western Grove Trusty, Joe Pans Trusty, juha Russellville Turner, Debi Russellville Turner, Ronald Van Buren Tygart, William Denver, CO Utley, lohn Hot Springs Vangilder, Helen Mount Ida Vaughn, Kimberley Ft Smith Vaziri, Assad Kerman, Iran Vernon, Lynn Ft Smith Vernon, Pat Russellville Vest, Julia Russellville Waggoner, Martha ' Stuttgart Waldo, Donna Pelsor Waldo, loel Russellville Walker, LisaJCenter Ridge Wallace, Cheryl Havana Wallace, Janet |asper Walters, ]ayne Clarksville Walters, Randall Dover 168 Peopk- north nt Russellville on Hwy. 7. Used primarily by those with high slung cars and good shocks, the pits are at theii best in warm dry weather, although they can be used year-round tare should be taken in this area since several of the roads lead to sharp dropoffs ending in 40 to 100 teet ol water. I wo spots that are excellent for temper- ate weather excursions are Dardanelle Rock and 40 acre rock. Both areas require a short hike and possibly a blanket and a flashlight. It is hard to beat the back to nature experience obtained from an eve- ning spent relaxing next to a small campfire, taking in the breahtaking view and . . . A left turn on the road across from Cat Fish ' N in Dardanelle will lead to the top of the Rock. A short hike down the road to the right at the top will take a nimble tooled couple to the end of the rock over looking the Arkansas River. Forty acre rock is located on the north side of 1-40 just east of the first Russellville overpass from Fort Smith. After crossing the overpass, turn right, go down the access road and turn to the left on the road just past the new water slide that is being built on one end of the rock. This spot, which is generally unmolested, is very popular not only tor passionate couples, but also for small parties and or- ganizational activities With a little imagination and daring, many more solitary and exciting places can be found to turn a dying date into thriving romance. After all, variety is the spice of lite. er a nice dinner and a good movie, couples often choose to ow a time honored tradition parking Ward, Marv ' Danville Warren, William Clarksville Watkins, Ray Jacksonville, FL Watson, Bobby Clinton Watson, Pamela Clinton West, Cecilia Ft Smith White, Diana Western Grove White, Phil Russellville Whitmer, Jeffrey Pea Ridge Whitson, Robert Mark Little Rock Whorton, PatnciaiParis Wight, Randal Dardanelle Wight, Stacey Ft Smith Wilkerson, JeanScranton Williams, Terry Clarksville Willis, Pam Mena Wills, Elane Russellville Wilson, Julie Ft, Smith Wilson, Ruth Momlton Wisdom, Sharon Ozark Woehl, Fred London Wood, Windell Spnngdale Yother, Wanda Ozark Young, BeverlyValley Spnngs Zimmerman, Kenneth St Vincent Seniors. 169 Juniors Adams, Bob Ft Smith Albright, I avid Little Rock Argo, Missy Russellville Aunspaugh, Allan.

The ex-governor of California won the election by such a wide margin that it was considered a landslide A mock election sponsored by the Pre- Law Club ended up with results very similar to the outcome of the general elec- tion. Ronald Reagan received 197 votes to President Carter ' s 174. Around twenty- one people who were polled were unde- cided about who they would vote for. " The enthusiasm from the students was surprising, " Beth Alexander, president of the Pre-Law Club, said " Maybe morale is higher than we thought " The pollsters indicated that the direct comments received from the students var- ied, and many held conflicting opinions " Carter has had four years to do his stuff, and I haven ' t seen too much, " one student said. Another student had a different opin- ion " If you want some ancient actor who is going to send us to war, go ahead and vote for Reagan " Tech students recognized the impor- tance of the Presidential election and how the change in the leadership of our coun- try would affect them.

She doesn ' t want people to know her just to know " Kari Utley " but to see God living through her She is involved in many campus ac- tivities. She is a member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, Wesley Foundation and is an FCA Huddle leader. Of all the honors she has been given she feels that home- coming was a real honor. She was a maid in the 1980 Homecoming. She never ex- pected that people would see her in that way. " People do not always see the serious side, just the funny one. I ' m serious at times because I have to be. I try to think of how people see me and what they see me as, " said Kari. Kari enjoys all sports especially tennis and bike riding. She plays the guitar and enjoys going to the lake or off somewhere by herself in the woods or on a mountain. Although she ' s only one of many, Kari Utley is a very special person. She is someone that in 10 years people will look back and say, " Hey, I remember her.

The plan will include three phases, all three dealing with the creek and the surrounding area. The first phase includes renovation of the creek and immediate areas. Rebuilding of the walls east of McEver Hall, reworking and sloping the banks and other minor adjust- ments to the sides of the creek are planned under this part. Phase Two entails the building of side- walks, congregational areas, and benches. Lighting will also come under this portion of the proposed plan. The final phase involves construction of a special purpose area, including a marquis, a possible outdoor classroom and multi-pur- pose areas. The success of the plan depends on the cooperation and interest of the student body According to [ohn Guetzlaff, a project super- visor, students must be willing to help on the workdays planned because the plan is based on students doing the labor. Since the plan was approved by the campus planning committee, there have been two workdays. Workday I dealt with the area of the creek west of Roucsh. Workday II concerned the area south of McEver. The banks by the bridges were terraced with rows of ties which were filled with bark. Both workdays began at 7:30 in the morning and the stu- dents involved worked until the construction was completed.

It seems that a lot of people have cheated or have i onie dose to it on the Tech campus. This fraudulent act is practiced in numer- ous ways. The most prevalent ways are the basic ones cine way is holding a small piece of paper with answers on it in the palm of your hand Another way is to brace the small cheat sheet on the person ' s back in front of you. Still another student said that he always puts his cheat sheet in his shoe and tapes the top part to his ankle. When the test begins, he crosses his leg and looks on the paper. If necessary, he can pull his pants leg down over the paper. Some stu- dents merely write their notes on the side or bottom of their shoes. Sometimes notes get down to the skin, and are placed on palms, arms, and ankles. However, there are people who take great pains with cheating and feel that thev have developed an art. Among the elabo- rate ways, one way is to make a scroll in an old watch. When the winding mechanism is turned, the paper inside will turn also. Another is to bribe the long-haired girl in tront of you so she will allow you to tape a cheat sheet on her back. If the professor gets suspicious, she just puts her hair over it. Why do people cheat? One Tech student replied, " When you have three tests in one day, and only have time to study for tw without falling dead, it ' s the only way yoi can get a good grade. " Another studen said, " I have to cheat to make passing grades. If I didn ' t have decent grades, m) dad would kill me since he ' s putting rru through school. " Are there any guilt feelings present? The first student answered, " None at all, be- cause I know I can really pass, but I just don ' t have time to study. " The second stu- dent replied, " No, I don ' t feel guilty, be- cause everybody does it. " Out of 50 stu- dents asked, 47 said that they did not feel guilty about cheating and three said that they had never cheated.

" 1 have always been afraid that I would get caught, and besides, it is not right, " a student said. Another student said, 1 think cheating takes the challenge out of learning. " When a professor at ATU was asked for his views on cheating, he laughed and re- plied, " It thev want to cheat, it is fine with me, because thev learn quite a bit when they make out their cheat sheets. " Another professor said. It makes me very angrv These people come here and pay good money to learn and thev don ' t learn a thing by cheating, " Cheating is a way through college for some people. However vou look at it, though, cheating on college exams is com- mon practice today.

Juniors 17 r SGA aims to restore credibility The Student Government Association (SGA) intends to try to restore its credibility by making improvements for students, SGA president Tom Jones said Jones said that the SGA has not been a joke this semester. " We have done some controversial things, " said Jones, " but I would rather be controversial than inac- tive. " Jones said that SGA has several projects: (1) Set up a Faculty Evaluation policy; (2) Improve Tech ' s Mascot; (3) Lobby state legislature and the governor ' s office for lower tuition increases. Jones said that he was sure some mem- bers of the faculty and administration would oppose a faculty evaluation policy. Jones said the SGA plan would be an evalua- tion of instructors by students. Students would fill out an evaluation form which in- structors would use for self-improvement said Jones. The plan will also call for evalua- tions of department heads bv instructors and deans by department heads. " After this plan is implemented I think the faculty and administration will like it, " said Jones. [ones said that SGA wants to make the Wonder Boy tangible. " We want something that students can identify with, " said Jones. He said that the SGA would not be trying to change the Tech mascot. " Right now stu- dents don ' t know what a Wonder Bov is, " said Jones, " we want to give them some- thing to stand behind. " He said that his project ' s formulation would involve the en- tire student body. Jones attended a meeting of student gov- ernment presidents at UALR which formu- lated a plan to lobbv the State Legislature and the Governor ' s Office for lower tuition. Jones said that because of cost increases a tuition hike was inevitable but that a pro- posed $70 a semester increase is unreason- able. He said that the SGA would try to get students and their parents involved. Jones said that SGA would gain credibil- ity on campus if it could accomplish just one of these projects. He said that the 2 main obstacles are that the SGA members have not realized their potential and the conser- vative administration at Tech.

Following the door season, when many classrooms seemed rather empty, a " thumbn.nl survey " ot campus professors was made. Sixty percent ot the teachers questioned said that absenteeism has been about the same or a little worse than in the past Iwentv percent said thev noticed an increase in absences, especially among their freshman and sophomore required courses. Twenty percent felt that absenteeism is a significant problem and that it has in- creased slightly each semester. One long-time Tech professor states: " Absenteeism is a problem that is increas- ing each year. If you compare it with ab- senteeism HI years ago, it is much worse- no w An interesting sidelight is that most of the instructors in the sixty percent bracket enforce attendance policies. One profes- sor, who commented that his students seemed to be more motivated this semes- ter, has the strn test attendance policy that was mentioned. student ' s asked claimed the classes thev frequently cut were a waste of time to them. Other students said thev woke up some mornings and just couldn ' t face an in- structor who tended to drone on and on when they could read the book and get the same information. Of course, there were the usual reasons for cutting class: just couldn ' t get up, weren ' t prepared, sickness, or " it was just too pretty a d.iv to sit in class, " but most students said the reason thev usually skipped a class was because they telt the i lass was unimportant to them Most of the students asked said thev felt that absenteeism policies should be abolished. " Thev don ' t do any good, " a student declared, " in all of my classes, only once or twice has an absenteeism policy really been enforced. " Other students felt that they were the ones paying for the course and it should be left up to them whether to attend class i r not All students agreed on one thing: the absenteeism is a problem that can no longer be ignored, students and teachers are going to have to come to a workable solution soon.

Mitzi Clemmons is one of those special people, although she sees herself as ordinary. Without taking credit, she talks with sureness and confidence. She is in- volved in many activities on the Tech cam- pus. She is a Golden Sun and plays both volleyball and basketball. She is active in the Wesley Foundation where she is a member of the Circuit Riders and an FCA huddle leader. This is a person who be- lieves that what she ' s doing is right for her. She has a real love for everyone and a genuine concern for people. Sometimes people have certain expectations of her be- cause she is a Golden Sun or an FCA huddle leader, but she has to be honest with herself and just be Mitzi! Sometimes the Suns are put on a pedestal, but thev fuss and fight just like sisters, they are also very close and love each other like sisters. Being a Sun is a big honor but it also takes a lot of time. Mitzi spends a lot of time on the road trips studying. She has to make time for her school work and that takes time away from things she had rather be doing. But there is more to her than just being a Sun. She said, " I don ' t mind being associated with the Golden Suns and I ' m proud to be on the team, but I don ' t want to be only a Sun — we ' re pegged — not individuals. I want to be known for more than that I want people to know me for what I am. " Mitzi really enjoys Tech and being here. " It ' s not perfect but it ' s the right place for me to be, " she said.

' and he jumped up and did a split jump. I said sure, and in my jeans and street shoes I jumped up and did it. So he said, ' You ought to try out for the Golden Suns Cheerleading Squad. ' These were the words of Tim Provost one of the three men who is now cheering for the Golden Suns Basketball team. Men were the first orginal cheerleaders as the history books state and Tech is now trying to improve and update their cheer- leading program by adding men to the lineup. Tim said, " I had only one day to learn the cheers before tryouts. But I learned real fast, and was surprised that I made it. " Tim played football in high school so being out on the football field or basket- ball court is nothing new to him, it ' s his new role on the court that ' s new to him, and he said, " Sometimes it ' s even hard- er. " When Tim went to his first practice he was having a good time sitting around laughing and learning words to cheers and chants. And he thought to himself wow this is going to be a breeze. But then things started to change. Practices started getting harder, he started learning how to put motions with the words he had learned, building pyramids, and working on his jumps. He said he felt like he had just finished one of his high school foot- ball practices he was tired and sore, and it was then that he realized that those peo- ple down there on that side line yelling their hearts out at football and basketball games put in a lot of time and hard work. Tim got a chance to cheer at one of the boys football games and he said, " The crowds are larger so participation is bet- ter, but at the girls games you have a smaller crowd and the cheerleaders have to work harder to bring the yell across to the girls on the court. " I asked Tim what was the hardest part about being a cheerleader and he said, " Learning to make the words go along with the motions, because coordination plays a big factor and you have to concen- trate on what you are doing. " I also asked him if he had any advice for other guys who have thought about trying out and he said, " First of all don ' t be afraid to tryout, secondly, don ' t expect it to be easy, and thirdly, don ' t give up once you have made it, stick with it because it pays off. Not only in scholarships but you feel good about doing it. And those peo- ple out there on that basketball court rep- resent you and you should be willing to back them. " He also added that they have a great sponsor, " She has a lot of patience and really makes being a cheerleader en- joyable, " he said.

Suddenly a large creature reminiscent of the Blob slides into the corridor from a shadowy doorway and begins advancing towards the adventurers. It is an attacking ochre jelly! Is this scene taken from a new science fantasy movie? Perhaps it is a thus-far un- discovered chapter from The Lord of the Rings. No, this scenario is from a Dun- geons and Dragons (D and D) game, and the participants are Tech students. D and D is a fantasy game in which each player assumes a role. In this game, each player becomes his character and alone, or in a team, moves through a dungeon de- vised by the dungeon master. The main prerequisites for this game are a dungeon master, a player ' s manual, special dice, and imagination. Each player rolls a die to determine the basic qualities of his character. There are six principal characteristics: strength, in- telligence, wisdom, dexterity, constitu- tion, and chansma. The higherthe number rolled, the stronger the characteristic. The player chooses his character class based on his characteristics. There are four character classes to choose from. These classes are cleric, fighter, magic user and thief. The player must choose a name and fam- ily background for his character. These names are usually in the magical-fantasy style. Goldawn Delver, Cinnabar, Dram the Nimble, Falstaff the Fighter, and Basil Bloodandguts are common examples. When all players have created and equipped their characters, they are ready to advance through the dungeon on a quest. A caller is chosen to lead and per- form the function of spokesman for the group. The dungeon is designed by the dungeon master with the help of the Dun- geon Master ' s Guide. There are as many different dungeons and quests as there are ideas in a dungeon master ' s mind. A sam- ple quest is a journey to an ancient, aban- doned wizard ' s abode to acquire varied potion ingredients and monster parts to sell for a large profit to an apothacary. Every dungeon is amply supplied with lethal traps, but some popular models are collapsing stairs, the poisoned arrow trap, and all sorts of gases that produce blind- ness, corrosion, fear, nausea, poisoning, sleep, slowing of movements, and weak- ness. If you have always secretly desired to hack and hew with a great broadsword, cast magic spells that really work, or just be a thief where thievery is an honorable pro- fession, then play D and D. I, Helena Mur- gatroyd, can assure you — there ' s nothing like it. Weston, Benny Mt Ida Weyland, Sarah Hot Springs Whatley, Ray.

In a recent interview, Travis Adams discussed the plans for Tech. A new system science building that is proposed will be built in the area north of Q street with an overlap into what is re- ferred to as the North McEver parking lot. The old Dean Hall will then become avail- able for reallocation. In a campus plan that was done in 1967, the proposed location for the new library involved tearing down Turrentine Apartments and building the library in that general location but two other loca- tions, west of McEver Hall and the area located near the intersection of O street and El Paso are being considered. The new library will house a media center and study areas for students. Witherspoon was the first step for solv- ing the needs of the Fine Arts Depart- ment. The area to the south of Wither- spoon will become the second step. The new wing will include a small recital hall and a properly equipped stage for theatre productions. Some additional classrooms related to art and a specialized lab for psy- chology are also planned. There is also a plan to take all traffic out of the center of the campus and move all parking to the perimeter. Caraway Hall will take on a new look. Adams said, " We have grant application in to renovate it and open it as a special privilege dorm for upper class women. As soon as we have funds available, the work will begin.

Recently, the effort and enthusiasm of several of the group ' s members has attracted the attention of an organization of fellow " movie buffs " in Omaha, Neb. as well as that of a leading NASA official. Members of this group are Mark Bourne, John McMahon, Chuck Pistone, Tim Williams, Tom Selby, Phillip Bow- den, and David Young, plus various and other interested friends who have been randomly involved with the group ' s proj- ects. John McMahon and Mark Bourne, with the help of a few friends, created an ani- mated film, Paraquat. The title charac- ter, created with no intended connection to the herbicide of the same name, is a spacefaring creature with the peculiar flair for conversing with itself via two flat heads mounted on two long, slender necks. Though the creators had no intention of this meager animation endeavor to be taken so seriously, it won Honorable Mention in the L.A. Films National Amateur Film Contest. Last fall a video tape of Paraquat was sent to Omaha, Neb. where it was shown at a convention sponsored by the Omaha chapter of a national organization of sci- ence and science-fiction fans. Guest speaker at the convention was Jesco Von Puttkamer of NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. He is known in fan cir- cles as the technical advisor for Star Trek and has published his own " Star Trek " fiction. Puttkamer saw Paraquat at the convention and he declared that the film is to be placed, with other artifacts of our 20th century culture, in a proposed NASA " time capsule " which is to be buried with its location recorded so that it may be un- earthed and studied by a future genera- tion. What does the future look like for those who want to continue filmmaking as a career? Mark Bourne summed it up with, " we have a gut feeling that whatever we ' ve accomplished so far is only the be- ginning of something much greater. We have no place to go but up!

That unfortunately is what a large majority of Tech students are suffer- ing from. Students who have a " ]ust get through school " attitude miss out on a very impor- tant aspect of college life; the social aspect Throughout the year there are student activities ranging from sororities fraterni- ties to team sports such as football and basketball. This year there are seven fraternities and three sororities. These groups pro- mote educational, social, and religious involvement at Arkansas Tech. However, only a small percentage of students ever join one of these social organizations. APATHY. In addition to these social clubs there are forty-three special interest clubs rang- ing from cheerleading to the Wildlife Club. But only a few of these clubs are really active and sport a large member- ship " APATHY. The Golden Suns, at the time of this writing, have a record of 17-1. But how many people show up to cheer them on? Very damn few. APATHY. As a matter-of-fact the only time a large group of students are ever united against anything is when they ' re complaining. 1 think it ' s about time Tech students started showing some unity, showing everybody that Tech students care about their school. In other words it ' s time we became UN- APATHETIC. Miller, Kathy ' Decatur Millwee, Mehnda DeQueen Minquez, George Carcas.

Some come to get away from mom, dad and the rest of the family. Some to meet new people experience new things and live a different life And most for a little of all of these. One way that many students choose to exercise (heir freedom to develop a new lifestyle, is by moving off-campus. They move off for the auspicious reasons of learning self-reliance, responsibility and privacy or so they tell mom, dad, and the administration. Thev also move off for the freedom to party when they want, eat when thev want, sleep when thev want, and study if they wish. After all, there are times in the dorm when a person just can ' t do what they want to. Off-campus living provides them with all of these things and more; bills! liilK i o me in ariabh right aftei a stu dent has |ust enjoyed spending his last dollar at Whatta-Burger. Hopefully the student enjoyed his meal, it was his last. There are lean times ahead till all the debts are paid off. These debts include such things as: gas, electric, water, and phone bills, transportation expenses like gas and oil (no gas, no car, no way to school), and heaven and BEOG help the student who likes to use credit cards. But all in all, most students find off- campus li fe rewarding both in enjoyment and experience. They know that they will have to be out on their own some time and now is just as good of a time to start as any. What are they at college for any way but to get an education.

Reductions in the current budget were necessitated since Arkansas law will not allow state agencies to expend money which is not available, even though it has been ap- propriated The failure of the state tax collections to reach the expected levels required state agencies to trim budgets to a 9 lb percent level of funding, which in many cases meant not purchasing capital equipment and or cut- ting back on supplies and services. In the other major cutback area which would affect future funding, the Department of Higher Education did not include , nv of lech ' s capital improvement projects on its recommended list. I )i I ' enneth f ersh president i ailed the initial DUE recommendations " totally una ceptable. " However since the initial presentation in September, the University has received noti- I nation from DHE that the Systems Science building is being included in its priority list. It isNo. 15 and calls fora$4,000,000grantif the projects are funded by the state " Of course, we know there is no way that the total construction list can be funded, " Dr. Kersh states. " However if the priority list is acceptable today, there is a good chance to receive funding in future years.

The Wonder Boys faced a formidable season with the season opener taking place at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock against the Univer- sity of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. The first home game was held on Parent ' s Day against Washburn University of Topeka, Kansas. Northeastern Oklahoma was the next op- ponent for the Wonder Boys. The following weekend the Wonder Boys faced off against a new foe, NCAA II powerhouse Northern Iowa. After that they moved into conference play starting with Harding at home and ending up against the Southern Arkansas Muleriders in Magnolia. Head Coach Harold Steelman viewed the season as a foundation year. There was much emphasis placed on the new and up- coming members of the squad. Leon An- derson left a group of 60 returning players consisting of 22 lettermen and 13 starters, so many were returning with some playing experience. Before the season got under- way, Steelman had lost ten or twelve due to various reasons and relied on incoming freshmen to provide the Wonder Boys with the necessary depth needed to develop a winning team. The defense was hurt by graduation and the offense also lost two top ball handlers due to personal reasons. The battle for the job of quarterback proved to be a lively one. The top contend- ers for the position were Doug Stephens, Jim Goodman, Danny Brazeel, and Herb Ford. When the time came, Jim Goodman proved to be the man Steelman chose for the job. With the number of team members down to 85 as the Wonder Boys faced the season opener against UAPB, Coach Steelman shifted players around to strengthen both the offensive and defensive units of the team. As the days before the season opener drew closer, the Wonder Boys spent time under the lights of Buerkle Field scrimmag- ing against each other. Much emphasis was placed on the special teams and the kicking game. Kelly Davis started off the season opener with a 28 yard field goal to provide the Wonder Boys with a win over UAPB. After a touchdown by the Golden Lions with 438 left in the third quarter, the Wonder Boys took over and drove to the UAPB 12 yard line before being halted. Kelly Davis was then called on to make the field goal that was the eventual game winner. In a slow-moving game against Wash- burn the Wonder Boys racked up their sec- ond win of the season against the Ichabods, 41-20. This was the second meeting of Tech and Washburn, the last one being in 1970 which Tech won 23-0. The game delighted the student body with the big win at home. Goodman completed 14 of 21 passes and the aerial assault proved useful to both teams. The Ichabod quarterback went to the air 56 times completing only 29. Tommy Faison, Henry Hawkins, Glen Yarbrough, and Lew Thompson show the defensive units pursuit which was a major factor in the Wonder Boy showing this year.

Although the Wonder Boy ' s win against Washburn the previous week was a big one, it was a sad one for freshman, Clifford Davis as his mother suffered a heart attack during the first half while watching her son play. She was pronounced dead later on arrival at St. Mary ' s. Against the Redmen the Wonder Boys were having a tough time. The game was close with 4: 11 remaining. After a Tech touchdown, Steelman decided to go for a two point conversion attempt with the score close at 34-33, in hopes that the points would give the Wonder Boys the third win of the season. The conversion attempt was intercepted and followed up by a 67 yard run for a touchdown that gave the Redmen the win. The Wonder Boys got a very physical game from hard-hitting Northern Iowa when they traveled to Cedar Falls to chal- lenge the Panthers in the Uni-Dome. The Panther defense proved to be too much for the usually high-powered offense of the Wonder Boys. At the half the score was 21-10 in favor of the Panthers. In the second half Northern Iowa came out ready to take it to Tech. The Panther quarterback hit Jeff Gardner for a 30 yard score and then con- nected with Ken Harvey to put the score at 35-10 before Tech could react. UNI scored twice more before the final period ended to give them the win, 49-10. The Wonder Boys eased past the Harding University Bisons to win their second con- ference game, 35-18. Tech was halted by several penalties as they amassed 192 yards on 17 penalties. Tech ' s victory over Henderson State was the first win against the Reddies since 1972. The Wonder Boys took an early lead by scor- ing within the first three minutes of the first quarter. The Reddies kept the ball on the ground to score but missed the extra point attempt to make the score, 7-6. The Hender- son defense shut down the Tech offense with scoreless second and third quarters. Henderson went ahead 11-7 with 3:59 left in the third quarter. Tech scored once more with 6:22 remaining in the ballgame to give the Wonder Boys the win, 14-11. At Conway Tech lost to UCA, 35-7, in a battle of the unbeatens. The loss put Tech at 3-1 in the conference and 5-3 for the season. Tech quarterback, Jim Goodman broke two school records that had held for 13 years. Both of the previous records were set by Leon Anderson. In only eight games Goodman had 1 ,556 yards passing while the old record fell with only 1,384 yards for the season. Goodman also broke the total of- fense record of 1,595 yards in 1967; he had 1,777 vards that should have reached the 2,000 yard mark before the season ended. Ouachita Baptist University was expected to use the same methods that UCA used in trying to shut down the Wonder Boys. This game probably stands as the most exciting of the season as the spectators watched the Wonder Boys rally in the last two minutes of the ball game to take the victory from the Tigers. With only 2:10 remaining to play in the game, Tech turned the contest into one of the most spectacular and unusual come- backs in history. A bad snap to Tiger punter, Todd Quick, went through his legs and was recovered by Tech ' s Phillip Shelby at the Tiger three yard line. Greg Jefferson took it across the line and into the end zone with 1:56 showing on the clock. The two point conversion attempt was missed and the score stood at 29-21 , in favor of Ouachita Baptist. Mark Millwood recovered the onside kick for the Wonder Boys at the Ouachita 44 yard line. Then Tech quarterback, Jim Goodman made a desperation pass that landed in the end zone in the waiting arms of Stacy Johnson. Goodman then took the ball in for the two point conversion that tied the game with the score at 29-29 with only 37 seconds left to play in the ballgame. With just six seconds left, Ouachita Bap- tist was forced to punt from the Tiger 35 yard line. David Hoskins broke through the line to block the kick and Tech recovered the ball at the Ouachita three yard line with 0:01 remaining on the clock. The Wonder Boys opted to try for the field goal, but Davis Norris, a Ouachita Tiger, ( ame through the line to block the field goal attempt as the time remaining on the clock ran out. Mean- while, kicker Kelly Davis picked up the loose ball and headed for the end one al- though an official had already inadvertently blown the play dead. The rule book states, however, that in the case of an accidental or inappropriate whistle the down must be played over. After much discussion the two teams reappeared and this time Davis made the 22 yard field goal to give Tech a win, 32-29 over the Ouachita Tigers. In the last game of the 1980 season Tech fell to the Southern Arkansas Muleriders in Magnolia. The winning touchdown was set up when Tech quarterback, Jim Goodman made a poor pitch to Stacy Johnson and Troy Gambel jumped on the ball for the Mule- riders. Don Tumey, Southern Arkansas quarterback, took the ball across for the touchdown making the score 13-14 and the two point conversion put the score at 15-14 in favor of the Muleriders. The Southern Arkansas team didn ' t let up and found Jim Goodman an easy target for another two points as they sacked him in his own end- zone. Those two points put the score to 17-14 before the clock ran out. The Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys finished the season with a 6-4 mark and 4-2 in the conference. For their play during the season, six Tech players were named All-AIC — Jim Good- man, Darryl Collier, Greg Jefferson, Tony Faison, Houston Townsend, and Irvin Phil- lips.

Wonder Boys tie for fifth in AIC The Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys opened the first game of the season against Freed- Hardeman. The hot-shooting of Joe Bob Wise and Eric Bozeman led the Wonder Boys to their win. The Freed-Hardeman team was much taller than the Tech team, but that didn ' t stop the Wonder Boys from taking the 94-85 win. The strong depth of the Wonder Boys was an important factor, ten players can be played interchangeably. Tech led at the half, but the Lions rallied to within two points late in the game. The Wonder Boys took to the road as they traveled to Joplin, Missouri, to meet the team from Southwestern Oklahoma in the open- ing round of the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference and the Annual Southern Mis- souri Invitational Tournament. Although the Wonder Boys were down 42-33 at the half they came back to turn their season record to 3-0 by capturing the win. The rebounding ability of the Wonder Boys proved to be in- strumental in their win. In the conference opener against Arkansas College the Wonder Boys took the win with the winning shot coming with :20 on the clock. Eric Bozeman put in the winning bas- ket with an eight-footer in the lane to give the Wonder Boys the win with a score of 69-68. With both teams trading baskets through- out the first half the Wonder Boys captured the win over the Harding Bisons. The score was tied eight times during the first half and the margin never reached more than two points until Harding had a 26-23 lead over (cont. on page 228) Kerry GiUory jumps high in (he air to grab a rebound for Tech.

The Bisons extended that lead to 32-27 before the Wonder Boys began to cut the lead and take a 46-44 lead into the locker room at the half. With 6:59 to play in the game Tech led the Bisons 74-66, but the Harding team managed to pull within three points with 2:32 showing on the clock. Joe Bob Wise sank both ends of a one-and-one situation and after a couple of more free throws the 91-85 win for the Won- der Boys was insured. The Arkansas Tech team fell to conference leader, Henderson State University after battling them on even terms for more than forty minutes. The loss came after a dramatic overtime win against Southern Arkansas University. The much taller team from Hen- derson proved to be more than the Wonder Boys could handle. Tech capitalized on a rash of mistakes by the Bears of the University of Central Arkan- sas and took advantage of the opportunity to take a 19 point lead into the locker room at the half. In the late going the Bears staged a comeback attempt, but were turned away by the Wonder Boys. The Wonder Boys took the win with a 73-70 score. Against the Boll Weevils of Monticello the Wonder Boys couldn ' t find the winning touch. The Boll Weevils rallied in the second half to take the win for the Wonder Boys who had led by as much as 12 points in the first half. The Boll Weevils ' free-throw shooting proved to be the winning factor. With Eric Bozeman gunning in 31 points the Wonder Boys took a win from Ouachita Baptist University. The win gave the Wonder Boys a 6-1 record at home. Tech built up a 68-50 lead only to see it decreased to a 78-76 margin with 0:09 remaining in the ballgame. The Wonder Boys broke the OBU full-court press and Bozeman put in a lay-up to give the Wonder Boys the win. The Wonder Boys lost a close one to the SAU Muleriders in the final seconds. SAU took the win by one point with a score of 68-67. The winning basket was set up by a drive the full length of the court and a basket that was the winning score with only 0:09 remaining on the clock. Against Hendrix th e Wonder Boys were turned away by the War- riors. Although the Wonder Boys outpaced the Warriors they lost 90-76. Tech ' s Wonder Boys celebrate a victory at the end of a game.

Basketball 229 Golden Suns continue to shine The Golden Suns had another great season, ranking number one in the nation and capturing their third straight AWISA crown. The Arkansas Tech Golden Suns con- tinued to shine brightly this season as they captured their third straight AWISA crown. The championship was assured as the Suns defeated Arkansas College. The season also marked the first one for the number one ranking in Division II to be given to Tech. In other firsts, Sherry Raney set several new school records in nine of the twelve cate- gories. Raney averaged 19.6 points per game and 7.5 rebounds. Tech entered the Arkansas Women ' s Intercollegiate Sports Association tourney with a bye and the AIAW Southwest Re- gional Tournament as the number one cede. The Regionals were held at Louisiana College, in Pineville, Louisiana. In the first games of the season, the Suns started off their winning tradition as they defeated the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in the first home game of the season with a score of 67-55. The previous week the Sugar Bears of Central Arkansas had hosted Tech in Conway. They took the vic- tory there also, but with a much closer score of 68-60. Sherry Raney, despite close cover- age by the opposing defense was the high scorer in both contests. Susan Godfrey also added to the Suns ' assets as her outside shooting proved to be more than useful when the points were really needed. After the half Godfrey ' s outside accuracy got the girls from Tech fired up as they opened the second half with a flurry of activity. After a slow start against the Riderettees of Southern Arkansas the Golden Suns cruised to a 68-54 win. The Suns had trou- ble gaining their usually high field goal percentage against the man-to-man de- fense. Tech also got into early foul trouble and had to go to the bench to take up the slack. The Suns ' defense proved to be a decisive factor in the game with Raney sit- ting on the bench the last half of the second quarter after getting into foul trouble. As the girls went to the locker room at the half the score stood at 33-25 in Tech ' s favor. Linda Poe and Raney opened led with some key defensive plays as Tech opened the second half in a 2-3 defense.

After playing two back-to-back games over the weekend the Suns were sur- prisingly fresh, but found the full court press throughout the entire game to be somewhat of a problem. Lisa Vernon and Carla Burruss were strong on the boards as they combined to pull down a total of 26 rebounds. Indi- vidual Suns shone at various times in the game to pull them out of some sticky situa- tions. Poe, Vernon, Raney, and Walker were crucial to Tech ' s win. After Christmas break the Suns came back a little bit rusty but found little difficulty in downing the College of the Ozarks, 63-38. Both teams shot poorly from the field and Tech ' s rebounding proved once again to be an important factor as they brought down a total of 43 from the boards while the Lady Mounties could only find the handle on 20. Late in the season the Suns ' thoughts turned to revenge their previous loss to Ar- kansas College. Arkansas College lost a big game to number ten ranked U APB while the Suns defeated Henderson State 90-68 with the blasting of Sherry Raney. The combina- tion of Tech ' s win and Arkansas College ' s loss moved the Suns out front by three games. In another match-up against the Lady Reddies of Henderson, Coach Yeager de- scribed the Suns ' efforts as one of their best. Henderson ' s strong running games caused the defensive play to be less sufficient than usual. Lisa Walker started off by breaking a 3-3 tie early in the game, and from then on it was home free for Tech. Raney scored 22 points in the first half to give the Suns a 49-32 advantage at intermission. Lisa Vernon and Lisa Walker took up much of the slack in the second half as Tech increased its lead to 72-49 with 10:27 left. Raney scored her last points on a second effort lay-up with a rebound.

Golden Suns 233 NAIA playoffs slip by The Wonder Boys opened their season with two losses to Oklahoma State in a double header in Stillwater. The team lost the first game 1 1 -6 and the second one 8-5. The following week the baseball team came back to split a pair with Henderson State University. Jerry Klyne opened on the mound for the Wonder Boys and pitched the first seven innings before Jim Adamczak took over with the score tied at 4 apiece. He led the team to a 5-4 victory over Henderson. The winning run was scored after Mike Dunn singled and was driven in on a triple by Gerry McGee. In the second game Steve Smith pitched for four scoreless innings, but after allowing two runs in the fifth, he was replaced by Dale Crowder. Crowder gave up four runs giving Henderson the win 6-0. Tech baseball coach, Bob Campbell was cautiously optimistic about the season. The hitting lacked power but had sharp- ness, mainly line shots. He was also pleased with the fielding of the Wonder Boys and that area of the game was expected to improve daily as the Wonder Boys got more practice on the field. The team defeated Harding in a double header. The win put them at 7-4 overall and 4-0 in the AIC. Jim Adamczak and Jerry Klyne pitched the win for the Wonder Boys. They took the win over the Bisons with a score of 12-1 in the first game and 6-0 in the second game. Adamczak struck out eight Bi- sons and gave up eight hits. In the fifth inn- ing designated hitter, Russ Anglin, and catcher, Gerry McGee, both knocked home runs over the fence for the Wonder Boys. Anglin ' s homer was good for two runs. Klyne struck out 11 Bisons and allowed only three hits. The desire to win and a winning attitude helped the team to beat the Bisons.

Dale Crowder started off the pitching for Tech. The Wonder Boys got their first score from Jeff Williams. Williams was driven in on a triple by designated hit- ter, Russ Anglin, after he doubled on his first time at bat. Anglin got another triple in the third inning along with Tech third baseman, Geral Holloway. Alan Williams was the winning pitcher for Tech in the second game allowing only two runs in the sixth inning. In the second inning of that game, Craig Williams hit a homer along with J. Williams. The Tech baseball team was ranked in first place before falling to second ranked Ouachita Baptist University. The Ouachita Tigers beat the Wonder boys, 12-7 in the opening game of the double header. A grand slam by Ouachita player, Stan Brown brought in four of the eight runs scored in the second inning of the second game. Trying to get the ball from the outfield into the infield requires a good arm. This Wonder Boy puts everything into getting the throw where it needs to go to stop the runner from getting across the plate. In the finale of the season the Tech Won- der boys split a pair in the double header against College of the Ozarks. The first game went to the team from the College of the Ozarks with a score of 7-4 . In the second game the Wonder Boys pulled off a big win with a score of 11-1. The homerun blasting of Russ Anglin led Tech to the victory. The baseball team barely missed the op- portunity to go to the District 17 NAIA playoffs as a result of the split games with College of the Ozarks.

The outlook for the Arkansas Tech Gold- en Suns looked bright. Even before the sea- son got underway, Coach Yeager was pleased with the team. Many of the new freshmen were looked to for increasing the Suns chances for winning the AWISA championship next year. Coach Yeager admitted that the incoming freshmen were the best set of new members in a long time. The old members weren ' t forgotten how- ever, and were the key to the Suns finishing with the best record in eight years. Next year should prove to be the season for the Suns. With the freshman talent com- ing up, it could prove to be the year that the title is taken from number one Arkansas State. Belinda Baker and Sherry Raney were named to the all-AWISA team this year. Both of them are juniors who played prom- inent roles in the rise of the Suns from a low second division position in 1979 to fourth place in the AWISA volleyball campaign this year. The two helped lead the Suns to a season that ended up being the best record in eight years. Baker was the biggest offen- sive threat on the team and possibly even in the conference at times. She handled the pressure that was placed on her very well. Both girls are equally outstanding in bas- ketball as well as on the volleyball court. Raney made all-American as well as all- AWISA in basketball. Both figured promi- nently in helping the Golden Suns capture two straight championships as well as the 1980 Southwest regional title. During the season the Suns defeated Hendrix twice, Arkansas College twice, UAPB, Philander Smith, UALR, and John Brown University. Losses went to Arkansas State, Central Arkansas, John Brown, Southern Arkansas, OBU, and Henderson State. The volleyball prospects for the team look brighter with all the new freshmen plus the fact that there were only three seniors on this years team, Linda Poe, Judy Crawford, and Carla Burruss. Also helping out with the success of the Golden Suns was graduate assistant, Vicki Henderson. She helped coach the girls through their fine season.

In the relay foursome, veterans James Imes, Ivory White, Shannon Perry and Harris were ready to establish new standards in the conference as well as in the Tech ar- chives. Harris erased the old 100 meter rec- ord, held by Garry Compton, of 10.6 with a 10.4. On the same day he broke the old long jump record of 23 ' 6V2 " , held by Tony Cotton and Louis Beacon, with a leap of 24 ' 3Vz " . Joe Bob Wise was looked to for high jumping points.

Long distance runners for the Wonder Boys placed fifth in the Arkansas Intercol- legiate Conference race which was won easily by Harding University. Tech ' s Joe Crommett placed 15th for the best individual performance by a Tech runner with Rich Chabot coming in in 25th place. Crommett was a 1979 All-AIC runner, but aside from him the team did not have too many seasoned runners. Other individuals who won places in the AIC meet were Butch Rice, John Parker, and Darryl Conley . Parker was the team captain for the squad. Other members of the team were Boyce Boyc e, Bernard Ponzi, and Boyce Bur- dine. Coach for the team was David Duncan, a graduate assistant, and former long dis- tance runner for Tech. The team was young in experience this year, but most of the athletes expect to do better next year. They did win four meets while losing in six in the pre-AIC compe- tition. Most of the team ' s home competition is held on the Russellville Country Club Golf Course. They opened the season there with a triangular with College of the Ozarks and Arkansas College. Tech and Arkansas College tied for first place in the meet with 39 points each while College of the Ozarks picked up 45. The low score wins in cross country meets. They followed the victory with another in a dual meet with College of the Ozarks before beginning to lose, due to not hav- ing enough team members complete the races. ■■■■H Cross-country runners line up along the starting line waiting for the signal to take off running Butch Rice kicks up some dust along the dirt road course after rounding checkpoint three hoping to keep the other runners behind him. 242 Sports Members of the cross-country team are: Coach David Duncan, Bernard Ponzi, Joe Crommett, Rich Chabot, John Parker, and Butch Rice.

One of the main problems that the team faced was hav- ing so few members on the squad. There are thirteen events in a meet and with only eight swimmers some must compete in more than one event. There are no scholar- ships so most of the squad members come from the swimming classes or just from the desire to compete. Without the pressures of scholarships there is more emphasis on swimming just for the fun of it. The only woman on the team is Mary Brandt. She is a free-style middle distance swimmer who competes in the 500 meter and 1000 meter races. Steve O ' Black is the only letterman on the team. He is also the only diver and is a former gymnast. Three other members of Tech ' s swimming team have strong potential, Danny Wilborn, Roger White and Monte Fuller. Swimming is one of the minor sports on campus and doesn ' t draw the crowds that football does, but that doesn ' t stop the squad. They are just as dedicated to their sport as any of the other athletes are and don ' t have the pressures of being watched by large crowds. Ill • On your mark, get set, go!

The overall record for the team last season was 1-7 with a few of the AIC matches being close, but not victories. The men ' s and the women ' s teams share courts for practice with both coaches sched- uling their practices when the other is not using the courts in the late afternoons. The gymnasiums are used when the weather is too cold or wet for outside practice. Head Coach Jim Yeager, who supervises the young women although a graduate assis- tant does the coaching until the end of bas- ketball season, states the girls put in a lot of hard work on the courts and that the team will definitely improve this year.

Two of the singles players had to go into tie-breakers to win their matches. Coach Ron Parks was optimistic about the season and expected the year to be suc- cessful since he believed the team to be the best in ten years. The UAPB tennis team proved to be no match for the Tech netters as they con- tinued in the winning style that had been theirs since the beginning of the season. The Wonder Boys handily defeated UAPB with only one loss in the match. In the match with Hendrix, the tennis team barely managed to edge the Hendrix netters. The Wonder Boys lost two of the six singles matches and only one of three dou- bles matches. Coach Ron Parks said that a poor draw was the factor that caused the Tech team to place fifth in the NAIA tournament. The team was ceded fifth going into the tourney and every team th at they played was ceded above them. The Wonder Boys weren ' t able to pull off one game in the tournament.

Games are held on Saturday afternoons and the members of the team try to put up signs and notices announcing the games and their locations so anyone who wants to can come and see them play. Soccer is becoming increasingly more popular throughout the United States and this new form could add something more to the sport. As the team becomes better known to the student body, things should start to pick up and maybe the sport will become the newest one to be added to the varsity level.

A majority of the teams that participate in the intramurals program are clubs, which helps to draw more spectators. Intramurals is a great way to meet people and provides a break from studies. Tech ' s amateur sports provide something for the non-varsity athletes without the long hours of practices or road trips. The em- phasis is placed on having a good time as well as giving your best. The Intramural program includes sports for both men and women. Just to mention a few, there is volleyball, basketball, Softball, swimming, and bowling. Participants range from the skilled athlete to the shy, but en- thusiastic guy girl who ' s willing to give it their best.

Student sports are more than just physical activities for us, they are what keeps us sane ' cause if it were not for our time away from the books we ' d be basket cases. The faces in this section could be you just as well as those that you see. Finding ways to expend your excess ener- gy can be a real challenge as well as a prob- lem. We are always looking for something new to try and if it has never been done before, so much the better! There are the traditional ways to spend a few hours off or a few days, but no matter where or how the time we play is spent you can bet that we do it in style! The memories of college aren ' t going to center around your classes but around your friends and what you did. The activities range from a hand of spades in the dorm lobby to a weekend away backpacking. Bikes are seen all over the campus and run- X ners take to the streets winter and spring. Taking a bike ride with friends can be a pleasant way to spend the afternoon, the smell of flowers and fresh air and the bugs in your teeth are sure to make you want to get out and do it again next week. Runners also abound on Tech ' s campus and not all of them stick to the track, the sidewalks, roads and the grass all bear the marks of running shoes. There are two sets of people, those who run and those who don ' t, well if you ' re not one of the chosen few don ' t worry, one of the plea- sures of not running is seeing a fleet-footed, tanned runner in running shorts. More and more people are finding out that Mother Nature is a good person to visit and soak up the solitude and the beauty of not having 85 people beating a path to your door. To truly experience nature you ' ve got to get out into it; no Winnebago, no color TV, no radio. And you ' ve got to go just for the sake of going and not with any definite plans.

The primary purpose of the organization is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as the basis of the accounting profession; to act as a medium between professional men, in- structors, students, and others who are in- terested in the development of the study or profession of accountancy; to develop high moral, scholastic, and professional attain- ment in its members; and to help students span the step from student to practitioner. Last spring the Accounting Club had a banquet to commemorate the end of the school year. During the fall of 1980 the Club partici- pated in the ATU Homecoming Parade. Their float placed second in the competition. A fund raising project was also discussed and was planned for the approaching spring semester. Additionally, the club had a picnic at Old Post Road Park and had a Christmas party. A speaker, who was a former ATU accounting student, presented a program to the Accounting Club. Agri Club The Agri Club is the oldest organization on campus and dates back to the estab- lishment of the college. The Agri Club endeavors to participate in worthy under- takings for the improvement of agricul- ture, to develop leadership, to give its members opportunity for self-expression, and to participate in cooperative effort. The Agri Club ' s most visible activity on campus is the sponsorship of FFA Day, a day in which FFA members from around the state visit Tech to participate in vari- ous judging contests. FFA Day is one of Tech ' s most successful recruiting ac- tivities because most of the students in the Agriculture Department participated in judging contests here at Tech. Many students in other majors first visited Tech while participating in FFA judging con- tests. The Agri Club participates in the Red Cross Blood drive each semester. Next semester the Agri Club will spon- sor FFA Day, have a spring picnic, and end of school picnic. Membership in the Agri Club is open to students majoring in agriculture.

It is a general honor society, admitting juniors and seniors from all academic dis- ciplines to membership. Although not active socially, Tech ' s Alpha Chi chapter meets once per semes- ter to admit new members and discuss ways of broadening academic scholar- ship Alpha Chi serves not only as an honor society during ones ' college years, but also as a source of recognition for scholarship after leaving school. Dr. William W. Trigg, Professor of Chemistry at Tech, is this years advisor for the society. " I support Alpha Chi, " says Dr. Trigg, " because I believe in academic excellence. Anything that en- courages and recognizes academic excel- lence is great for the individual. " With chapters in over 40 states, Alpha Chi serves a dual function of honoring the individual and reflecting favorably upon the institution to which they attend. ABS Three types of membership in the Associa- tion of Black Students is available for stu- dents — active or full association, associate, and honorary. The Association ' s purpose is to develop dignity, pride, and respect among Black stu- dents; to study and support the development of Black culture; to elevate the status of Black students; to promote unity among Black stu- dents; to strengthen a concept of equality on the Tech campus; and to establish a better relationship among races on the campus. Black students observed Black Emphasis Week in February of each year with the ac- tivities beginning with a banquet on the first day of the week and ending with the Afro- Ball on the final night. Talent contests with participants being in- vited from the other colleges and universities in the state is also a part of the week ' s ac- tivities.

The Brass Choir provides entertainment often in the Witherspoon lobby during class changes and has performed at community functions, such as their special concert at Sequoyah Elementary School. The members gave their own performance at ATU band ' s Christmas Concert. They performed at the music department ' s ensemble tour and, every two or three years, they tape presenta- tions for KETS. Those in the Brass Choir feel a special bond in their desire to learn and perform a type of music they love. Their traditional lobby per- formances build a rapport with the rest of the student body with their informal style mixed with their desire for excellent musicianship. Director Anders feels the ensemble benefits from the positive input received from the student body about their performances. Cardinal Key Granted a charter in 1958, the Tech chapter of Cardinal Key is an organization for women who are leaders in the college community and who are deemed poten- tial leaders in the future. The sorority aims to honor these students, inspire leadership in others, and utilize leader- ship capabilities in an active program of service to school and community. The purposes of Cardinal Key are to recognize achievement in scholarship and extra- curricular activities to advance religion, patriotism and service by training for leadership in the university community; and to develop worthy character by appli- cation of the Cardinal virtues to living. During the spring semester, any girl with a 3.00 average may pledge. The or- ganization must limit their number of pledges to a limit of twenty-five. During the fall, Cardinal Key hosts Par- ent ' s Day. They sell programs at all the ATU football games. Additionally, the or- ganization sponsors fund raisings for na- tional organizations.

They are joined by captain Nikki Shock, co-captain Missy Argo, Elaine Dial, Juanita Langford and kim Graves. During the summer of 1980, the ATU cheerleaders attended the National Cheer- leader Association Camp at SMU in Dal- las, Texas. There, they received superior ratings on the evaluation of their cheers In the fall of 1980, the cheerleaders planned all pep rallies and attended all the ATU football games. During UCA Week, the cheerleaders sponsored a box contest. The contest winners, GX Theta Chi, and AXA Lambda Chi Alpha, lit the annual bonfire. Additionally, the ATU cheer- leaders supervise the Golden Suns Cheer- leader tryouts held during the fall. Throughout the year, they sponsor sign and spirit contests. Suns Cheerleaders Leading cheers for the Golden Suns, the women ' s varsity athletic program, is the Golden Sun Cheerleaders, composed normally of three young women and three young men. The cheerleaders are selected by two panels of judges — one who evaluates the skills of the students and the other who evaluates the students after holding per- sonal interviews. Ms. Mary Williams, sponsor for the group, states the six are eager to learn, have demonstrated much skill in leading the various cheers, and have a good at- titude. The unit leads the students in the same cheers that are given for the men ' s sport- ing events and their dress is the same. This is the second year that the Golden Sun Cheerleaders have been chosen for the women ' s games. The new group was necessitated due to a conflict in playing time for the men ' s and women ' s varsity games.

Since the Chamber Choir has been in- vited to perform in the St. Moritz Music Festival in Europe, the group ' s activities have been centered around money mak- ing projects for the trip. During the spring semester of 1980, the Choir sponsored a carnival at Tucker Col- iseum and participated in a clean-up campaign collecting aluminum cans and selling them for recycling. They also had a Katherine Bike candy sale. The annual Spring Concert was also performed.

FCA The Fellowship of Christian Athletes ' main purpose as a national organization is " to confront athletes and coaches and through them the youth of the nation, with the challenge and adventure of fol- lowing Christ and serving Him through the fellowship of the church and in their vocations. " On the Arkansas Tech campus, the purpose is more related to giving the stu- dents a place to go to meet people of the same moral standards and for Christian fellowship. One does not have to be an athlete or coach to belong to the organiza- tion. FCA has retreats and have started an annual FCA rally to be held on campus. Members also support the athletes in a spiritual way, as well as cheering at the games. Their money-making project is cleaning up Buerkle Field after home games. Many of the students who attend the meetings are graduates who have stayed in the Russellville area and continue to share in the experiences that FCA pro- vides fellowship through the church, and in no way strives to take the place of the church. Five Cent Cigar The " Five Cent Cigar " is a magazine that publishes imaginative writing of the Arkansas Tech community. It is spon- sored by Dr. Stanley Lombardo and the Lit Club. During the spring semester of 1980, the " Five Cent Cigar " published its spring issue magazine. The " Fall Preview " issue was com- pleted during the fall semester of 1980. This particular issue is a small selection of writings that is intended to encourage the potential writers at Arkansas Tech to submit work for the spring issue and give the public a sample of what the big spring issue will contain. The staff, headed by Susan Stoddard and Mitzi Turner, are currently planning the spring issue for 1981. Anyone who wants to express themselves in writing, art work, or photography is encouraged to submit any materials. One of the primary goals of the " Five Cent Cigar " staff is to give individuals the chance to express themselves in a printed campus publication. Another goal is to make the " Cigar " a publication that is accepted by Tech students as the news- paper and annual are. Five Cent Cigar staff members are, front row: Melanie Moore, Amy Tnplett, Mitzi Turner, John D McMahon, Mark Bourne, T.

" The wind whips the flags, so that they are harder to handle, " according to the young women. " However, it is a lot of fun to per- form with the band. " The wet fields give the young women trouble because the flags become wet when they hit the ground during some of the routines. Members of the team develop their routines and then coordinate their presenta- tions with the band when they practice. Of course the band director, Hal Cooper, also assists them with their presentations. Flag Line members are selected after audi- tions before a panel of judges who view their skills with the flag and also who interview them with regard to personality traits and for personal appearance. Their flags are, of course, green and gold. French Club Trench club members arc. front row Connie Rommel. Danelle Johnson. Pam Norma nd, Pat Huckeby Second row: Travis Boswell.

Orienteering Orienteering, one of America ' s fastest growing sports, is basically a natural sport demanding a fusion of body and mind. It opens the door to other activities such as hunting, fishing and other outdoor ac- tivities. Orienteering is commonly referred to as the " thinking man ' s sport. " The team currently has 28 dedicated mem- bers. During the past six years it has established itself as one of the strongest competitive teams in the United States. The team won the Southern Orienteering Meet at Alexandra, La. for the fifth year in a row. The team also dominated the ASU meet on 1 1 Oct. and the SAU meet on 6 Dec. Eighty-five percent of the team partici- pated in ATU ' s record breaking Blood Drive this year. Many of its members are also on the ATU rifle team, color guard, and swim team. As well as being a popular sport, ori- enteering teaches the individual self disci- pline, and physical fitness. Through its ac- complishments during the past six years, the team has become a recruiting organization for Arkansas Tech University. Panhellenic The Panhellenic Council, advised by Mary Lynn Williamson, dean of women, is an organization which promotes schol- arship, high character, better understand- ing of the Greek world, and harmonv among the Greek organizations The council was established in 1891, to discuss the uniform rules of rush and bids. The Panhellenic Council serves as the governing body of the sororities at Tech, regulating rush, bidding, and member- ship " They ' re the contact point to the University, " said Williamson. Each sorority selects three of its mem- bers to serve on the Panhellenic Council which then sends representatives to the National Panhellenic Conference. The Conference, which is composed of 26 in- dividual sororities, is used to discuss rules and the organization of rush and different activities which could be pre- sented at the universities and in the com- munity.

The club held meetings both on and off campus to promote interest for physical edu- cation majors and minors away from classes. Pre-Vet Club Pre-veterinary students only may be members of the Pre-Vet Club, since it does have a highly specialized interest area. " Only one out of seven students who apply for veterinary school are selected for the honor, " according to Dr. Kenneth Pippin, head of the agri-business de- partment at Tech. " As a result each stu- dent has to be very aware of what is de- sired by the veterinary schools and what the student has to do in order to prepare for entrance to the veterinary schools. " Between two and four students are ac- cepted each year from Tech. Con- sequently the most valuable service the club provides is a common ground for the exchange of ideas concerning the students problems. They also discuss what prob- lems other veterinary students have en- countered in school during their meet- ings. " The club does help in preparing for the transition from Tech to the professional schools, " states Dr. Pippin.

Each student at Tech is repre- sented three times on the senate; where he she lives, the school of their major, and class standing. The senate, functioning as a legislative body, seeks to improve and enrich student life at Tech. The senate has many diverse and inter- esting functions. Outside of routine mat- ters, such as approval of new organiza- tions, and the effective and efficient run- ning of its committees, and the resolution of minor problems that come before the body, the senate considers major issues that have a broad student concern. In the past, the senate has donated money to organizations such as the cheerleaders and ROTC, to give them the opportunity to participate in off-campus and out of state activities. All students are encouraged to partici- pate in the activities of the senate. Being a senator offers students a chance to de- velop leadership skills and a sense of re- sponsibility. Senate Exec.

Later she joined with Jerry Dor- ney, a junior journalism major, for indepth articles and they formed SWAT (Special Writing Assignment Team). The sports editor, Bill Campbell, a freshman journalism major, wrote the Time-out column and movie reviews were written by Mark Bourne and record reviews were written by Jimmy Wade. Jill Billings, a junior journalism major, put in long hours as business manager, and one semester as photographer.

As usual, I ' m work- ing on the annual in a flurry to meet our deadline, something we haven ' t been very good at this year. It really hasn ' t been a bad year. We may not have met all our deadlines but the spirit of meeting them was still there. We still burned the midnight oil racing against time to meet them. And we know the " agony of defeat ' ' and the depression that came when we realized there was no way that we were going to make it. There were times when we lost our enthu- siasm, when we thought, " Let ' s just get it done, " and gave up on some of our more elaborate ideas. But there was still a spirit there that lit a spark under us every once in a while and said, " Come on! You can do it! Try some of those ideas, go that extra mile to make this book better! " And then we ' d push ourselves more and reach down and find that last bit of enthusiasm and we ' d try out our ideas. We haven ' t had much of a staff. Three peo- ple really " did " the book. There were times when I felt like quitting because I thought nobody cared. But our advisor was always there. Not cheering us on or praising us for our good work, but he was there, and I know he would do all he could to help me. There were two other people who really helped. They were my staff. Kristi Voelkerd- mg, the sports editor, was there to look after me and worry when I worked too hard. And Danna Dodd was there to volunteer for all the stuff nobody wanted to do. And especially thanks to Martha Merritt, Mr. Edgar ' s secre- tary, who went " above and beyond the call of duty " to help us out. The students were great. Not many volun- teered to work but the support I got from them often gave me the courage to continue when I thought no one cared. Thinking back, it hasn ' t been a bad year at all. It ' s been a great year. Danna Dodd, Copy Editor, waits on a writer to finish before discussing their copy with them. AGRICOLA STAFF Gerald Edgar Advisor Teresa Harris Editor Kristi Voelkerding .
