This decade will be filled with memories of the past, a push for surviving the present and hope for the future. At the present time of this write-up there are (is) . . . hostages in Iran. . . . the rising cost of Inflation. . . . the impending elections for close running presidential candidates. . . . the conflicts with other countries which have taken a turn for thoughts of registration or maybe reinstating the draft. Is there the possibility of war? . . . controversies over nuclear power . . . solar power . . . any power. AND HOW ABOUT ELMHURST COLLEGE? WHERE ARE WE IN ALL OF THIS? TO 1980 The college that is church affiliated seems to be losing its theological purpose. Through technology our college has been " cosmopolitanized " . It is suppose to be a liberal arts college or is it getting too specialized? What happened? Do you know the past history of the college? Did you know the college used to be " specialized " -a pre- seminary institution? Changes have dominated the history of Elmhurst College ... no one is saying the changes are bad . . . but it is something to think about. Yes ... a new decade ... a new set of questions ... an evaluation of the past ... a lot of changes . . . new generations . . . new attitudes . . . What is in store for the nineteen eighties? WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU? NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION Freshmen and transfer students were introduced to the B.C. campus with the help of Orientation leaders.

' kinuiii APOLOGIES Sorry, folks . . . After doing all of my complaining on my closing page (p. 190) regarding having no pictures to complete this book, I attempted to finish the book without them. Around July 28 of 1980, a certain Rita Bayers was cleaning out the photography room and found an abundance of pictures. Obviously, Gary Haman " forgot " to give them to me. Needless to say, I was allowed to finish the book with the help of Rita Bayers and her investigative techniques! As for Haman and staff- Bob Burdick Ken Cayle John Celhaus Artego Jaunes And Holly Mackinnow— better late than never?

A Pep Rally started off the weekend plus a fabulous concert by BLOOD, SWEAT TEARS, featuring David Clayton- Thomas. ' Their ' new ' sound was great (plus they did a medley of their old songs). " A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum " was performed Friday and Saturday night of Homecoming weekend. People had decorated the dorms and the union for added spirit. The football game (we won, of course!) was full of excitement as our Blue Jays ' last play of the game (with 2 minutes and 17 seconds left) gave us a score of 16 to North Central ' s score of 14. Saturday night was the Dinner-Dance. The weekend slowed down with a movie on Sunday night, " Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

It is the trend all over the United States and Elmhurst is part of it. Soccer had been the first varsity sport at E.C. from 1907 to 1920. They had a w inning tradition back then, and the new y formed soccer team is trying their best to recapture this image. The team, lead by captain Mike Niles, consisted of a group of guys and a girl that practiced in the mall early in the morning (and w henever they had the chance) and u orked their way to playing area schools. Team members included: Lei Camp, Hadi Karimi, Saeed Karimi, Eric Kenealy, Chuck Miller, Mike Niles, Ruben Orgaz, Don Paxson, Art Slaber, Jerry Taylor, Rasesh Thakker, Roland Torres, Kathy Tutkus, Tim Vernon, Hung Vu, Shou-Ping Yeh, and Bahman Zarinehaf. The season was high-lighted by Kathy Tutkus with three goals and Hing Vu, the star Half-back. The leading scorer was Ruben Orgaz. The 1980-81 club plans to be better than ever since almost all of the team is returning. It ' s about time soccer came back to Elmhurst and we have quite a club!

Adequate classrooms, studios, practice rooms and office space are available for the first time. Any Elmhurst College student can make use of these fine facilities by taking a departmental course or by participating in one of several musical groups on campus. Whether involved in its activities or not, the Music Department with the recitals and concerts it sponsors, provides pleasure for the ears of students, faculty, administration, staff and the surrounding community as well. MUSIC! what is reality? Does Cos exist? What is morality? What is life? " I think, therefore, I am? " Ever wonder about any of these questions? The Philosophy Department may not have the answers but they do have many courses that will give you an idea of how people are theorizing at the present moment. With the departments comprehensive program (as a major) one is urged to apply his her knowledge to analyze present-day problems and evaluate proposals for resolutions. For non-majors . . . it ' s time to get philosophical! The Department is giving you an opportunity to be exposed to and develop interest in this mind-boggling subject- PHILOSOPHY! PHILOSOPHY THEOLOGY AND RELIGION Seems everyone believes in something or some one or some ' being ' . Maybe not. But, if you have had an encounter with a theology course you have probably found out something you never knew before— that theology doesn ' t have to be boring! (Remember, if you are bored it ' s because you are boring!) The variety of courses one can choose from and the professors make theology and religion at Elmhurst College a ' classic ' . " Norman and Sandra " performed fables with deep-seeded lessons at a dinner-theatre sponsored by Religious Life Committee. CHEMISTRY The mission of the Chemistry Department at Elmhurst College transcends the training of professional chemists. Chemistry, the science of the metamorphases of matter, is important in the intellectual lives of many students seeking a liberal education. The education of Chemistry students at both introductory and advanced levels is intended to reflect the relationship of Chemistry with other disciplines and to be responsive to the impact of chemical science on society, (copy submitted by Dr. R.

The History Department seeks to serve the interests of broadly educating students in a field which is inherently interdisciplinary. As one of the original liberal arts, History promotes a knowledge of man and his world through time and is a civilizing force in an era of need of civilization. A historical perspective is important for any age, but especially for an age in crisis and in search for identity. Historians do not have all of the answers, but do know many of the questions.

Frick He jogs? He jumps rope? He ' s the President? You know him? Yes . . . that is our President. Most students know President Ivan E. Frick. He knows many of us, too! In an article in the LEADER we found out some things we didn ' t know before. Dr. Frick arrived at Elmhurs t College in 1971 when college enrollment was slim. He had taught as a professor at Findley College and became president there until his call to Elmhurst. The attraction to Elmhurst was formed-the Nursing and Business and Economic programs. This provoked interest in E.C. Dr. Frick ' s educational background is phenomenal. He has three college degrees: Findley College, Lancaster Seminary and Oberlin College. Not having enough ' academia ' he completed his Ph.D. at Columbia University focusing on the philosophy of religion. In between degrees and jobs Dr. Frick married and has three children. Mrs. Frick taught elementary education until she had children. She is an " invaluable help " to Dr. Frick ' s social obligations. (There is a good woman behind every successful man!) President and Mrs. Frick DEAN OF THE COLLEGE: DEAN SCHMIECHEN Did you ever wonder who the Dean on the " Dean ' s List " was? Well, wonder no more, it is Dean Peter M. Schmiechen. He is the Dean of the college who is overseer of the Academic program at E.C. He assumed duties in 1975 after graduating from E.G., Eden Theological Seminary and Harvard. He had served as a member of the E.C. Department of Theology and Religion but now assumes part-time responsibilities there. MAISEY L LAKE Maisey Lake (pictured twice) is the Administrative Assistant to the Dean of the College. She also is in charge of scheduling, interim, and student advising. Mrs. Dyke, secretary, is pictured with Maisey Lake.

It was directed by Paul R. Ziessler who had returned to Elmhurst after completing a master ' s degree in Directing and Criticism from Northwestern University. His interpretation of " Toys " is this: The play is concerned with the lives of six people and their ability to cope with sudden wealth and the fulfillment of their dreams. As lives are disrupted and familiar patterns changed, the characters are forced to face the mistaken anticipations in their make believe world. The faculty in the Deicke Center for Nursing Education believe that man is a unique, developing being in a dynamic environment. Because his being is biological, psychological, and spiritual he experiences a gamut of needs. We believe that the needs of man can be met through utilization of the nursing process. This process can be used to assist man, individually or collectively, to achieve his highest potential for health. The nurse who provides this care must have a philosophy of life which embraces the spirit of service to one ' s fellow man. The student who aspires to become this kind of nurse has to be willing to work hard to understand man and his needs. We are very proud of the young men and women who are achieving this goal with a degree in Nursing from Elmhurst College, (copy submitted by M.

Raising Limoges cups to paper-thin lips that whisper in cultured French, they savor their seperateness from the coarse outside world. Did the photographer who arranged the women in this ceremonious circle observe the tea table? Did he see how the samovar centered on the fine white linen gleams like a jeweled icon on a shrouded alter? " The Author of Life by Mike Nosek With a flick of His wrist He sprays supernovas across eternity, and in the midst of explosions and fireworks He carefully places a tiny world in the middle of the lightning, then, artistically, carefully. He paints the world over with trees, grass and animals, a pause; then He reaches down to the freshly created mud. and sculpting it with joyous caution He has His masterpiece! the earth sits up and looks at Him. and with mud dripping from His hands. He smiles. 2nd Place Poetry ' ' Tourist Trap ' ' by James Burdin I While culturing down an obscure via and Searching for a place to eat in Rome, I stopped before a statue clad in black As if mourning an ancient man unknown. This solemn sight possessed a strange appeal And so I moved to get a fuller view. But close inspection then revealed to my Surprise that the face was blackened also. I felt acute remorse and pity then For man and likeness both. Pollution, soot, And dove discharge of modern day had joined To loot this beautiful work of its looks. I pictured the distinguished poser proud Whose fame was fortune founded like Lear ' s crown. And saw the startled state he would assume If modern ravage and neglect were known. I saw the maidens feed him peeled green grapes And sadly thought of mightiness brought low. For once this man was prime symbol of might And now the grapes of age would make him choke. But noting that the neck and trunk were made Of unlike stone, I sensed a fraud at best. I lost respect for two faced replicas lAnd guileful Roman guised as statuesque. So then I thought this marble man had mocked Its model well as inauthentic art. And starting down the street again I heard My hunger howl and felt my stomach smart. 2nd Place Poetry (Cont.) Unicorn ' ' by Joe Golimowski Walking at night, a rustle of bushes; She saw a rabbit jump, For me the unicorn danced. Endless party A babble of voices Glasses tinkling with ice People drifting across the room Smiling, they would talk to themselves. In silence I listened to silence. In silence I walked away. Walked along the paths at night Night hawks swirling in star speckled sky. Wind rustling in the willows. Moonglow spilling down a hill. I listened to music in silence. In contentment I walked. Once a gid walking, humming, Her eyes bright, clear A smile We talked of summer jobs, 8:00 classes and Beethoven. Walking at night, a rustle of bushes. A fable flashes Together we danced with the unicorn. Not printed: " The Author " by Linda Orlyck 1st Place Short Story " E.M.B. c o Balaschek by Kathy Bergin The booming voice did not diminish, even when she went to the other side of the house. The strange words sounded dull when he spoke. Slovak was a lively language when Mary or Mamma spoke it, but Poppa made it sound crude. Why had she come back? She didn ' t have to come back. Momma missed her, but Momma had Mary. Mary. That reminded her of another thing that was crude about Poppa, he had chosen her name. He named her Emma. Not a pretty name like Mary, but Emma. She wasn ' t Emma anymore; her New York friends called her Emily. Emily Bellas not Emma Balaschek. Emily ' s room was situated on the west side of the house, affording her an unobstructed mountain view. The lush, green forests and deep brown hilltops were indiscernible at this late hour, but Emily knew they were both enchanting and engirding. Every so often headlights appeared then disappeared, reminding her of how she once fantasized about people using the mountain road. During the sixteen years that she had occupied this room, and habitually looked for a fleeting glimpse of headlight, she had conjured up all sorts of highly romantic situations that would happen on the mountain. The other local people were only interested in the things happening inside the mountain. The road to Wilkes Barre was never discussed. Coal was always being discussed. It came from inside the mountain; underneath everywhere-the mountain, the town, even the school. Poppa said one of the first shafts dug was under the present high school. The only time he had anything nice to say about the high school was when someone mentioned the ground it was erected on. He was still incapable of reason when it came to that building. It didn ' t seem possible that only two years had passed since she brought home that wonderful letter from Hanover High. Mr. Shukis wanted Poppa to encourage her, to consider the university down in Philadelphia. She didn ' t need encouragement, she needed another Poppa. How he ranted and raved. She made believe she couldn ' t understand him; of course that made him all the more furious. She had been spoiled, he said; other girls of sixteen were married, or at least, bringing in an income from the cigar factory. She had seemed reluctant to grow up, so he had allowed her to stay on at high school. But he would not permit her to go to the university. That was when she left. Two years. Eighteen. Of course, Walter thought she was twenty-one, but then Walter thought she was Emily Bellas. Emily lived with a large bustling and busy family, on Long Island. She answered an ad in the Daily News for a bakery gid, and adopted a whole new way of life with the job. Living at the YMCA in the city was exciting at first, but the matron began to suspect that Emily was not quite as old as she said. The job and the lodging on Long Island were a godsend. Living on the Island, as she had begun to call it, was so much nicer than the city. It reminded her of living in Hanover, but only because of the friendly, small townness. The landscape was completely different, and so was Emily. There was an expansiveness about the areas that made her feel free. The land was flat, no mountains to hold her back. It was open fertile land, green a good portion of the year. Even in the winter, the proximity of the ocean kept the Island warm enough to ward off the bitter cold ravages to the ground that she had experienced in the Pocono ' s. Besides working at the bakery Emily often joined her landlord and his family at church outings and community get togethers. Involving herself with people that weren ' t her relatives and weren ' t even Slovak was a totally new experience. She loved it. She met Walter, an Irish Catholic New Yorker, on a blind date. Emily was becoming worldly. The first time Walter took her to the ocean she cried. Walter figured that she was impressed by its majesty. Actually, she was crying because she was so glad that her family had made that crossing before her arrival. Thank God she had been born here. The water frightened her. She didn ' t want to think about what it would be like to float around out there. The ocean was infinitely more beautiful, powerful and exciting than Lake Noongola, but she knew she would never step foot in it. Lake Noongola, that ' s where she wou ld go tomorrow! She and Mary would enjoy a swim, pick blueberries, have lunch at the tavern, maybe even stop at the Mine on the way home. Poppa was mad at her, but she was still his little girl. He ' d be pleased enough to show her off. He once wanted her to marry one of those men; tomorrow he would show them what a good deal they had missed. It was hot coming into the valley after the coolness up by the lake. The warm sun had been able to touch them, as they made their way down the densely treee lined path. Now, as they reached the open field, the sun was very strong. Mary carried a basket full of blueberries. She was actually looking forward to the pie-baking chore that lay ahead. Emily wanted no part of that project; this wasn ' t going to be a busman ' s holiday if she could help it. As they neared the roughly constructed redwood fence that encircled the mining camp, Emily said, " Good afternoon, " to the guard in the sentry box. The man nodded. " That must be a boring job. Look how he just watches the entrance to the shaft. " " His name is John Guzy. He has two sons down there, " Mary said. " Don ' t tell me. He ' s a lunger, yet he still thinks the best place to be is down the shaft. " " Emma, " Mary said, " I wish you wouldn ' t use that term lunger. You sound as though you blame the men for getting sick. They don ' t choose to get lung diseases, and it doesn ' t happen to all of them. " " If it happens to one, that ' s too many. Yes, I do blame them, especially for encouraged their sons to be minors. " " What else could they encourage them to be? " asked Mary. Emily wanted to shout ANYTHING, but one look at her older sister made her control the impulse. Mary was pretty by anybody ' s standard. She had very even features, with dark eyes, and long dark hair. Emily wished that Mary still wore her hair loose, but in Hanover, twenty-five year old girls wouldn ' t allow themselves the luxury of flowing hair. Her new style was becoming, but with a distinctively European quality. Their slight physical resemblence was less obvious now that they had succumbed to different fashion dictates. Mary arrived in America when she was seven; she was fifteen before she spoke English outside the classroom. Emily couldn ' t blame her for viewing the mines with Poppa ' s vision. " Mary, will Stanley be coming to dinner? " " Yes, Stash and I plan to go over to his mother ' s house tonight. Finally, I will get to see the attic and the basement. She says there is much furniture stored. We will have a good start. Imagine marrying an upholsterer and getting used furniture. " Mary was laughing. Emily knew that used furniture didn ' t bother her one bit. Anyway, her ' Stash ' could make it all look new. " Stanley didn ' t go into the mines. You ask ' what else could the boys be encouraged to do, ' and yet you ' re marrying someone who found an alternative. " Mary looked as though Emily was the one who didn ' t understand. " Emma, " she said patiently, " Stash has a talent. It would have been wrong for him to forsake a gift from God in order to work in the mines. " " Mary! does a gift, as you call it, have to make itself visible before it ' s nurtured and schooled? Haven ' t you ever heard of learning a trade? " Suddenly the whole atmosphere was changed. There was a charge of humanity. Fifty men standing in the yard and fifty more coming out of the shaft behind them. " They look like ants scurrying out of a corner in the pantry, headed for a jelly jar, " said Emily. Mary obviously enjoyed the comparison. Emily knew she wasn ' t going to change her sister during the course of a summer vacation. In fact, if Mary ' s environment didn ' t change, neither would her attitudes. Poppa was in the second group of men to leave the mine. He spotted both girls over by the fence, and his big face split into a wide, white grin. " The most beautiful girls in the world. See friends, what could be nicer. Two pretty daughters come to meet a tired miner. " " you old phony, " Emily murmured the words through a frozen smile. Poppa wasn ' t the one being a phony. At this moment his daughters were exactly what he wanted them to be, and his words rang true. The trio headed out of the yard and down towards Pine Street, towards Momma, and holubschi with Stanley for dinner. They looked like a primitive painting in motion. Emily thought that as soon as she could continue to be Emma Baleschek, the evening would be fine. As far as general table conversation went that night, Emily would have done much better to have had her supper upstairs on a tray! She quickly discovered that Momma, Poppa, Mary and now Stanley, had reverted to the old custom of speaking Slovak to one another. No allowances were to be made for the length of her absence. She was expected to participate in family life as if she had never gone away. From time to time, Poppa would look at her with politely expectant expression, but since there was no intelligent contribution that she could make, she could do no more than smile at him. As the meal progressed her smile became more fixed. Boredom crept in, and she began to feel remote and just a little light-headed. Gradually, she drifted into soothing thoughts of pretty clothes and Broadway shows, Walter ' s family, and Irish coffee. She was quite unprepared when Poppa directed a remark to her. " The letter that you received at Uncle Nick ' s, " he said. " Why not have your young man write to you here? I am good to Stanley; don ' t you think I would treat your friend with kindness also? " Emily was brought sharply back to the present. She was too embarrassed to admit that she had not been listening. She blushed and then tried to desperately to reply. " Why I . . . i suppose it was just shyness, " she stammered. " I didn ' t expect him to write so soon. " " Where does he think you live? Is there shyness in him too, or is my gypsy daughter not giving him all the facts? " That did it; he sounded so patronizing! " Perhaps that might not be altogether bad, " she said. Instantly regretting her statement, she added, " Men like women of mystery. " " Women of mystery! An unpredictable female is more like it. " " Females, as you call them, are not always unpredictable. Poppa. For instance, when they are teased, they are predictably annoyed. " " Pardon me, young lady! I had no intention of teasing you. My intent is to find Miss E.M.B. c o Balaschek. " Emily took a deep breath. She didn ' t risk being rude, yet Poppa ' s air of amused superiority made her fume. She had been caught, and with as much dignity as she could muster turned to her Momma. " Momma, you have such a lovely name, Mary ' s name is pretty too. You know I never liked ' Emma ' . When the girls that I met in New York assumed that Emma was short for Emily, I knew that I could be Emily. Mary and Emily, sounds good doesn ' t it? " She waited. It seemed to take an eternity before Momma smiled and said, " Emilyne, that ' s how this whole thing started. Remember, George, you thought it was a name too fancy for such a small baby, so you shortened it to Emma. We never thought of Emily. " Emily was elated. Emilyne! It wasn ' t Emily, but it was a helluva lot better than Emma. They had considered a pretty name; somehow that made a big difference. There was an air of general merriment. Poppa was saying something about another christening party, and each one at the table took a turn telling a story about someone in the family who had undergone a name change, sometimes for the worse. Mary cleared the table and brought in her luscious looking blueberry pie. It ' s now or never, Emily thought. " I don ' t use Balaschek either. " The direct approach. " Emily Marie Bellas. I kept the Marie. " C isaster! Why did she say, ' I kept the Marie? ' Disaster! She looked up at Poppa; he was a most bewildered looking man. " Is that all? Is there anything else that we should know? " " No, that ' s all. " The evening ended when Mary and Stanley left a short time later. The rest of her ten-day visit flowed by. Letters from Walter arrived, and were the only things that broke the unchanging rhythm of routine. Emily took each one to her room to read in private, always eager for the vicarious pleasure that his adventures provided. Answering these letters became a difficult task, mainly because her replies were reports of uneventful days and nights. She longed to tell him what it was to come back to a place that was supposed to be home and yet feel so displaced. She felt that in the melodrama of having invested so much time and energy inventing the girl he knew, that she had neglected to fill her with a substance that would support the mold. More than the " John Doe ' s, " or rather " Jane Doe ' s, " that he regularly booked, she considered herself the epitome of deceit. As the days went by. Poppa took refuge once again, inside the quiet, remote man the Emily remembered as a little girl. He didn ' t seem angry; ' detached ' would be a better description of his attitude. Momma was Momma; busy, pleasant, accomplishing all her routine chores, in the same chronological order that she had mastered more than thirty years ago. She called her daughter Emily, without a moment ' s hesitation. It was one thing that made the visit bearable. Mary fettered between Emily and Em. Poppa rarely addressed anyone by name; his conversations were more like directions, coming abruptly out of nowhere. Appelations had never been part of his syntax. Momma ' s total acceptance of Emily was so comforting and positive, that Emily began spending most of her remaining visit at her mother ' s side. At first this was a strain otji both of them. Momma always had been a solitary person with only a few friends outside the family, and Emily was sure this was the situation by choice. It was difficult for the older woman to relax and allow herself to enjoy her young daughter ' s constant company. After a few days, they were more comfortable with each other, and Emily began to enjoy the bits of nostalgia that Momma was now so obviously willing to share. Story after story, the progression of a young family traveling halfway around the world, began to emerge from Momma ' s recollections. " Four years it took from Prague to Pennsylvania, such a long trip. Your Poppa and Uncle Nick took turns carrying Mary and all our belongings. Sometimes I wished they would carry me. Always, your Poppa would say, ' America, here we come; make way for hardworking Balazs brothers. ' Those were not easy years, but filled with such hope. On the ocean, I knew that soon Mary would have a little brother or sister, but told no one. We wore as many clothes as we carried and so I didn ' t mention you, until we were actually in America. What a skinny little baby you were. " " Momma, what you just said! Poppa wouldn ' t say ' Bellas Brothers, ' you mean Balaschek. " " I mean what I say, Balazs B-A-L-A-Z-S, you think only you are Balazs? " " Momma, that ' s not what I am. No matter. What did ' Balaschek ' come from? " " From when we came to America. The place with the papers, where the big ship took us, Ellis Island. Uncle Nick told them who we were, the family Balazs from Czechoslovakia. " (E.M.B. continued) When we got our papers the next day we were Balaschek. " " Oh my Cod! Why didn ' t yqu ever say anything? " " What difference. In America does it matter if you are Balazs the hard ' working Czech or Balaschek the hard worker? " Emily was still laughing when Poppa got home. Poppa listened and understood everything except the part about the mold that really did have substance. " A BECINNING " by KARI KIRCHOFF A Beginning: No more than that.

" THE GLASS SPIDER " by MICHAEL ANDERSON Once upon a bathroom mirror I chanced to spy on a spider. Why, I did cry, would a spider stand on a mirror? To see himself clearer?

CHECK ... by JOSEPH J. BOURNE If love were a game then everyone would win— a smile, a kiss and goodbye. All so very simple. But it isn ' t so easy you can ' t cry out " Checkmate! " and not take the king. Such coups are blood affairs and love just isn ' t a game. People really bleed and yes, there ' s pain; something you ' re perhaps all too unfamiliar with my friend.

" they would say, " She didn ' t look you in the eye. " I never listened. I followed the hand and the laugh. But not the eye. Now she holds another hand and laughs. " Silly boy!

I ' m to watch the passerbys and remember who is wearing what today, so as to keep in touch with style. I must narrow my eyes to delve out who looks harassed or disgusted; this is proof that someone ' s home life is not on gentle waters, good gossip at local parties. I must seep out comments on the market. What were the prices today? How much did old B. get from his competitors? Was Queen Elizabeth seen? Any comment on that new law? On and on. My mind wanders. I see not the people parading past, casting glances in my direction. I think not how hellish this day has been or how this night shall be. I see a slander, extremely pretty girl. I see her lean her head wearily against the wall and try to relax her legs against the rough chair. Her mother stands before her, and by her carriage and the garments she wears, I see that she is wealthy. The questions begin. " Did you study your French today? " " Yes. " " Catechism and Bible stories? " " Yes. " " Practice on your lute? " " Yes. " " What new tune did you learn? " " None, I hate it! " " Catherine! Watch that tone! Have you thought of all I ' ve done for you . . . . " I ' m dimly aware of a faint breeze and pull my cloak about me. A man strolls by and politely inquires, " How are you, Madame? " I don ' t answer. I see Catherine huddled against a tree. Her pony grazes nearby and a puppy laps lovingly at her tearful face. Tomorrow is Catherine ' s first court appearance, signifying her availability for marriage. Catherine does not want to go. She wants to remain a child. Upon marriage, Catherine would be required to put away those things so close to her; her pony, riding through the forest, her dorso full of wiggles, so brimming over with love for Catherine. She would have to begin instructing the servants on household matters, attend parties that part of the night she now reserved for a bit of blissful solitude. On that, tomorrow would never come. I sigh softly and snuggle deeper into my chair. Darkness has descended, and passerbys are few. The butter- colored moon casts a shadow across my face. I do not know. I do not care. Memories have taken me elsewhere. Catherine is getting married. It is April in England, and a cool, but unusually clear day. The church bells slap the wedding song against mansion and humble dwelling, and the wedding procession winds its way through the dew-sparkling meadows and into the spiraled church. There is a slip of a lad in the lead. He wears his best suit, dark, and clinging tightly to his form. He carries a silver cup containing spiced wine. Following him are the lute and flute players who proclaim the joyous event to all who gather about. In a bright, hard flash of colors are the brides-maids. They walk stiffly so as not to drop the bride ' s cakes. Yet they glance hastily to the right and then left. The bachelors are watchi ng. There is the bride. For the first time, Catherine has let her hair flow freely, symbolizing virginity. She walks regally, the thousands of ribbons from her sleeves, skirt and bodice rippling gently. Her cheeks are pale. There is the groom. A slight rustly of laughter from onlookers greets him. There are whispers: He must be fifty years old . . . Look at that belly! . . . and he ' s bald! ... Ye, she ' s lucky to get him ... Of course, there were stories about some filthy beggar ... of course. Catherine ' s step falters. A dog whimpers and moves restlessly about the porch. He thrusts his wet, sticky nose into my hand, and pats my legs with a rough paw. " I ' m cold. " he whines. " I ' m hungry. " I don ' t feel him or hear him. Catherine is having a baby. The bed is covered with white satin cloth. The mother and child rest in solf silk and lace trimmed with pearls. Visitors file past the bed: " What a lovely baby! Just look at that hair-same color as Catherine ' s. Get the sponsors here ... lay out the apostle spoons to bless him with. How wonderful that God graced Catherine with this baby, even if it was only for a few moments . . . . " Oh, Lord, send them away. There is Catherine. She rests in a large, soft chair on the porch of an elegant mansion. Her head is tilted slightly against the arm of the chair. Her hair has fallen from that respectable knot at the nape of her neck to grace her breasts. Her mouth is slightly open, her breathing soft and slow. There are tears on Catherine ' s cheeks.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) " I HAVE A DREAM " " This will be the day when all of God ' s children will be able to sing with new meaning, " let freedom ring. " So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. But not only that. Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia. Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi, from every mountainside. When we allow freedom to ring— when we let it ring from every city and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God ' s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, " Free at last. Free at last. Great God almighty. We are free at last. " " Free at Last . . . " by Carroll Wheatley, Jr. On June 21st 1964, Chicagoans of every color and religious persuasion jammed Soldier Field. The big and little showed up. Mahalia Jackson sang " We Shall Overcome " . Her manificient voice filled the stadium. They all came to hear the voice of the man who was very inspirational in the Civil Rights Movement. It was King who organized and led marches that would later open Housing in Chicago ' s White Suburbs. He was not only instrumental in Chicago, but renowned everywhere as a great Black Leader. Born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929, he was the son of a Baptist minister. King became president of the Montgomery Improvement Associations and led a successful 381 -day Boycott of city buses by blacks. This boycott began when Rosa Parks, a black woman, refused to give up her seat to a white man. She was arrested for violating a Jim Crow Law which stated that whites should sit and blacks must stand on crowded buses. In 1954, the court ruled unanimiously that seperate but equal education laws were unconstitutional. In 1%3, King led a mass protest march in Birmingham, Alabama in an appeal for fair hiring practices, desegregation of store facilities and establishment of a bi-racial citizens committee. King was incarcerated which led to the class denunciation of racism, " Letter from Jail " . It was later this same year King led the largest Civil Rights demonstration in U.J. History. Fighting for equality among blacks and whites. King led the " March on Washington " . He was there to campaign for the passage of the Civil Rights Amendment. It was here that King delivered his famous speech, " I have a Dream. " In 1964, King received the Noble Peace Prize for " consistently asserting the principle of non-violence " . He was the youngest recipient, and only the third black to ever receive this prestigious award. The man who brought hope and prosperity to blacks and fought for nonviolence was not able to see his dream come true. Black History Month is a period to salute the fore-runners in the preservation for freedom. From Harriet Tubman to Frederick Douglass, black men and women who have given their lives in order to have a more prosperous future today. A month is not long enough to praise the contributions that many blacks have achieved during their fight for freedom and equality for all mankind . . . The struggle is not over, but through their efforts we have seen a brighter light for the future. ' The Lost Angel Of Church on Corner Street " It was the church on corner street Whose traces good and bad Entranced all those who ' d stopped to meet The old church meekly clad. An aura ' round the top of it Which was a cross so bright, It no one blinded, though it lit The shadows of the night. An angel every day would stand Before the old church ' s gate; Would Guide the sinners by the hand Before it was too late. It mattered not when winter came. Though freezing it would be. Its fragrant garden stayed the same But leaves fell from its tree. For it was said, by those who knew. About this tree so queer; That all its leaves to ground they flew Because of some strange fear. This fear so strange brought down with sleet Was born from deep below The old, old church on corner street Which housed an old, strong Foe. The battle never seemed to end. Though shadows never stopped To pray or look for ways to mend Their souls which Foe had chopped. An Angel whose thick shield was tanned Decided to desert To where the Foe had staked the latid; Provoking an alert. Such evil act of beastly bite That no one could accept. But nonetheless, though ' twas not right. The Angel did defect. And such bad act, as said before. Cave birth to great alarm; So that henceforth, the humble door Was watched with gun in arm. Although the actions of the day Enhanced the church ' s repute. The children didn ' t stop their play While hearing old Foe ' s lute. " At last today I ' ve been set free. " Thus thought the Angel ' s mind. Without considering to see What evils he might find. The once-pure soul could not discern Or choose right things from wrong. So then, that ' s why he felt the burn From Foe ' s old flaming song. Through hills and dales the Angel went Without a guide or chart; In dirty brothels oft he spent The treasures of his heart. But every time a red light lit The Angel ' s eyes could see The cross of church on corner street The place he wished he ' d be. And from the church on corner street Where people always went To leave their sins under the sheet That was the Angel ' s tent. A light so warm in Wintertide Not red but blue of hue Showed where the Angel ' s soul had died But showed no other clue. No, not one clue of how he bent His soul away from Truth, Although some could perceive a scent Which nothing did to soothe. The fallen Angel who was lost. His heart; a growing corn. Completely tearful was the cost; Forever he stayed torn. The Angel ' s freedom was inborn And it was his defeat; The Angel ' s eyes were seen to mourn The church on corner street. And still this Angel, lost for good, Preferred to be the slave Like long, hard nails inside hard wood Supporting the old nave. One candlelight now lit his cave Which was his present home. A home not like the one he gave Away; this was a dome. A dome with bars no flesh could see Though the Angel ' s soul felt Its force that would not let him flee To where new candles melt. For he ' d remembered his old church, The one on corner street; The place whose fragrance bid him search Through storms, and quakes, and sleet Though hard he tried he could not win And free his soul from there. He prayed he could be out not in This dome which did not care. The Angel lived among the crowd That was a rugged rock; He couldn ' t help to see the cloud That held him with its lock. He would not tire to ask the Key To open wide the bars; To fly to freedom o ' er the sea And by the farthest stars. The Key would not at all give in Though daily pleaded he; Not even streams of tears could win His freedom from the Key. But once when early came the gloom Of night that slept til late. The Angel gently grabbed a broom Confronting his ill fate. With broom in hand he swept away The waters from his tears. Thus taking far the Key that day That ruled him o ' er the years. He didn ' t let go by this chance And silently escaped; He fled from there like a speeding lance Or women who ' d been raped! And after years of pain he stood With red, thick sweat at last ' front the old church that stayed so good Forgetting not the past. For though with opened arms received The Angol felt remorse. Remembering the life he ' d lived While yielding to Foe ' s force. And Still old Foe was standing by Behind the strange old tree, Awaiting the Angel to sly And fall from Earth to Sea. by Rolando A.

I love You for loving me, for listening to me, helping, caring about me. You see me as 1 am, and treasure me that way. And when I ' m hurting and not knowing what to do, a hand touches my shoulder, an arm reaches around me. You rest with me, and have sadness, despondency, as I have. And through our communion, I find a strength for life, a willingness to go on. There is peace. Then there comes the time I see a reflection in your eyes . . . It is a new me, a person who is growing, i love You, Father. Days go by, of work and school, and home, rough days. And I look about me . . . The world has darkened again! I can ' t see You. can ' t find You! My body sags, hands cease work, knees bend and wobble, I fall. And then my being cries, " Lord, help me! Come back! " Then the realization comes . . . You did not leave me! I left You. There ' s just quietness, and a deep hurt, and loneliness. And I utter haltingly, " Forgive me. Lord, please. " And I feel a hand on my shoulder.

Now I ' ll explain why the first three points were made at the beginning of this closing. I have never experienced a year like this before. I started out with a good-sized staff and had seminars to teach them yearbook technique. An article was written in the LEADER about how much of a " dynamic editor " (that ' s for you, Dan) I was and that I had good ideas. 1 thought it would be a good year, right? WRONG! I didn ' t have pictures for the first two semesters of the year (well, maybe a few but nothing to boast about). I ' ll tell you . . . that is the best way to lose a staff-no pictures to make a yearbook with! Guaranteed to work everytime. If 1 sound cynical about the photography part of the yearbook it ' s because I am. My staff before (and now) had much to offer in terms of creativeness and energy-they had no chanc-e to use it. But the work that was done is good. At least I think Of course, I shouldn ' t complain because I did have help from a couple of dedicated staff members (count ' em-one, two- a couple). They made it worthwhile (bless their hearts). We did the best we could with the staff, pictures, time and facilities that we had. We know we can ' t please everyone but we want you to know and understand that making a yearbook is not easy nor is it a constant stream of laughs. I wish it could have been. One last thank-you goes to Dick Moore, yearbook representative, for the cover and his patience. Hello everyone. I ' m Sue Toth and, boy, do I have a closing page for you. First of all, I stress these: 1. I hope everyone reads this page. 2. 1 hope I never have to be an editor of a yearbook again. 3. Don ' t have pity after you read this page, just send money for my psychiatric bill. These three points will make sense after you read the whole page! But, first things first. I would like to thank my staff members in whom for some, yearbook was a joke; for others who thought of it as a serious endeavor; and lastly, for those who still think it is a joke. A staff member who deserves the most credit is Sharon Hetzel. She worked with me in the summer to get the book finished. Jill Hruska worked her hardest to help out and accomplished much. Sharon and Jill had the patience to put up with our lethargic photography staff. Although Dawn Meyers and llida Lanz dropped off toward the end of the semester due to frustration, they helped a great deal more than I gave them credit for. Other contributors were Marsha Blunt and Sharon Ruopp and I can ' t remember the rest. Sorry. And, lastly, there is one that I wish I would have forgotten and that is Debi DeVincent. She took all the Homecoming pictures plus others with her when she transferred-my wrath was never greater. Oh, yes! Thank you Gary Haman? Who was on your photography staff anyway? Many thanks to Gail Brinkmeyer, the " Good Dean " Cunningham and Phyllis lovino for confidence. Tub e-wiii
