From ElV to Brim- merworld, Emersonians create a multi- tude of ways to demonstrate their thoughts, ideas, and talents. Emerso- nian ' 88 illustrates, through pictures and words, the wide spectrum of Em- erson; its people, its campus, its life- style. Cover Story The photograph on the cover was donated by R.M. Bradley Co. of Boston. The Emersonian staff would like to thank Debbie Black for assisting us with this design. Emerson does not have a typical campus, it reaches from Los Angeles, to The Wall, to Holland. And life at Emerson isn’t typical either. The following pages show you fhe atypical aspects of Emerson that make life here so unique. The Wall 4 The Wall The W6l 1. The low concrete walls between 126, 128 and 130 Beacon v : z Street. 2. Emerson’s excuse for a quad. 3. A place to hang out, meet friends and do homework between classes. 4. Joe’s home away from home. You can count on him for a ■ sandwich, cigarettes, coffee and a good laugh. 5. The place to see or be seen on Emerson’s campus. l.S: T ' T. I 5 6 If the college is looking to buy nnore property for its Back Bay Campus, it should try to acquire Crossroads, a Beacon Street restaurant bar that is a familiar watering hole for most Emersonians. Crossroads and Yaz, its manager, are as much a part of Emerson as the Wall. Students go to Crossroads, home of the Jen-Jen, dollar pizza, and Rolling Rock beer, for the atmosphere as well as the food and drink. Upstairs is decorated with painted Greek letters of Emerson’s sororities and fraternities. It is a favorite Greek hangout, and has been the host of meetings, parties, class trips and many post-mortem gatherings.

Boston Emerson’s Campus An Emersonian is a free spirit, someone who can’t be satisfied with anything but the best; someone who won’t be confined to one place. Emersonians can be found all over Boston. When we work, we work hard. It shows in the hours we put into our part-time jobs and intern- ships in Boston’s top businesses. It shows in the time we spend doing extra research at the Public Library. We give our all to articles, photo shoots, film shoots and t.v. spots. Emersonians also know when to play. We play as hard as we work. We walk through picturesque Beacon Hill. We shop in Kenmore Square, Copley Plaza, and Downtown Crossing. We eat at Aku-Aku, Crossroads, Charlie’s, and Faneuil Hall. And we exercise and relax on the Esplanade. We jog, walk, bike roller skate. We’ve been known to ditch class to catch rays on our sailing dock or play a pick-up game of ultimate frisbee or touch football. We can be found all over Boston as easily as we can be found on The Wall. We’ve made Boston more than just the city we live in. We’ve made it our campus. Boston at twilight.

Los Angeles I ive your live in the lap of luxury next semester on the L.A. pro- gram. Lavishly furnished Oak- wood apartments ease you into the West Coast style. Your apartment comes com- plete with pseudo-oak bookcases, twin beds and teal green wall-to-wall carpet- ing. Within the complex there are swim- ming pools, jacuzzis, weight rooms, game rooms, and security underground park- ing. (My car has only been broken into once). Located on the corner of Vermont and 3rd Street, this mid-Wiltshire area is a multi-ethnic environment. One must be self-motivated to succeed on the Emerson - Los Angeles internship program. Internship sites are exciting and varied. Tri-Star Pictures, Los Angeles Magazine, and Paramount Pictures are just a few corporations that ‘house’ our students. As in any city, internships are what you make of them. They have prov- en to be a great outlet for learning, experi- ence, contacts, and future job opportuni- ties. Most of us worked 2-4 days per week, allowing plenty of time for fun and games. Before I mention the late-night parties in the jacuzzi or the L.A. nightlife, I should say a bit about the classes. Special Top- ics in Writing for T.V. and Film is by far one of the most stimulating, motivating classes I have taken. Each week a guest speaker is arranged to lecture in our class and ultimately we choose one of them to work with individually to complete a final project. Well, we have covered the residential, professional, and personal aspects of L.A. life. What’s left? Oh yes, I forgot to mention the beaches. Venice, Santa Mon- ica, Manhattan, Paradise Cove. Malibu, which one should I choose? I’m going to catch some rays now before the tempera- ture drops to a cool 80, ciao.

[ 14 ) Residence Life For students living on campus, time spent in the residence halls is just as important as time spent in the classroom. Whether you choose to live in Charlesgate or Fensgate near Kenmore Square, or in 132 or too closer to campus, your building becomes your home. Your neigh- bors become your closest friends or sometimes your worst enemies. R.A. Sue Knill offers some advice to a resident in Fensgate. R.A.s-in-training: Suzy Kennedy, Stephan Henry, Elaina Pilotti, Bob Lindscott, and Elizabeth Hooper.

The Student Union at 96 Beacon Street is “home”, the core of student-run activities on campus. Union staffers dedicate many hours to maintaining order at the desk. They endure early mornings and late nights opening and closing the Union. They run the front desk, ansvi er phones, sort mail and handle room reservations. The bulletin boards cover the walls of the Union, provide information about meetings and events sponsored by the SGA, the Programming Council, the Greek community and other organizations. Union staffers aren’t the only ones who “live” in the Union. Since several student offices are housed on the third floor, the people who run them are in the Union as often as staff members. The Union is one central place to go between classes. Commuters may have an early morning class and then two to four hours before their next class. Since it is inconvenient and costly to go home between classes, they go to the Union, where they can store their books in the lockers, grab a bite to eat at the UnKommon and watch “Rock World” In the lobby or soap operas in the fourth floor lounge. The Commuter Club was recently given an office in the Union. This was an important step for them, because they now have one concrete place to work out of as they try to unify Emerson’s commuter population. The assistant Dean of Students and Student Life moved into the space vacated when the school store affiliated with the campus bookstore at the beginning of the year. The Student Life committees that work on Hatch Shell, Orientation, Programming and Parents Weekend work out of the first floor offices. The Berkeley Beacon and the Emersonian both have their offices on the third floor. Their staffs spend a large amount of time in the Union. The one problem they have with their office space is that they can only work in it when the Union is open. Since they both work on deadline, there are times when it is inconvenient to leave, but they have to because the Union is clos- ing. 18 Kiersten Wolf runs the front desk. Commuter Tom Peisel use the lobby to sleep be- tween classes. Photos by Elizabeth O ' Donnell The Library The library, located at 150 Beacon Street is “home " to some students much in the same way the Union is to others. Students go to the library in between classes to relax and read newspapers or magazines. Of course, as at any school, there are non- studious students. To them, the library exists as the only shuttle stop other than SAGA. The library has a lot to offer, from the depths of fhe media center to the study cubicles on the fifth floor where students can retreat for intense studying. It’s 90,000 volumes tend to be either extremely helpful or extremely frustrating. The 25-30 work-study students who work with the 20 non-student staff members make an effort to help students use the library’s re- sources. It’s not easy to stay awake in the Reading Room. Technical Services: Geri Papiernick, Mandy Janjigian, Naomi Robin, Mary Curtin- Stevenson, David Miller, Janet Hill. Media Center: David Murphy, Ann Gallagher, Leslie MacPherson, Mau- reen Tripp. One problem students have is that al- though the library may have the books they need, there won’t be enough copies to go around. However, the library is a good place to study. A place that is constantly in use is the Reserve Reading Room. Students are often found ensconced with a book in a plush grey chair or sprawled on one of the couches deep in thought. Once in a while, it’s possible to catch someone sneaking a quick nap between classes or late at night. The library can be a familiar place to study, hold informal class group meetings or just a place to go to get out of your room. - K. Westerhouse Public Services: Joan Hamilton.

Airlines, car rental agencies and hotel motels are inundated with reservations for the most notorious “college” event. The traditional vacation spot has changed over the years. Students still flock to Florida, but now more are heading to Daytona than to the previously legendary Ft. Lauderdale. They still hit the beach in droves for marathon training sessions and cruise around at night looking for parties. But the overall atmosphere, though still wild, has toned down a bit in the past few years. The change in the drinking age from eighteen to twenty-one has had an effect on partying. It has also had an effect on the number ot fake id’s in circulation. Students under 21 are forced to find alternative ways to enjoy themselves however because of increased security and a crackdown on fake id’s. The traditional beach activities go on uninterrupted. All kinds of contests are held to show off the best body, best tan, best bathing suit . . . etc. There are any number of athletic activities to participate in. Students play frisbee volley- ball. They also body surf, jet ski, parasail and enjoy the wonders of Disneyworld. Students go crazy trying to arrange flights, rides and hotel rooms, all at the lowest possible expense. The last day before break is always the most insane. Everyone is rushing around to find out what everyone else is taking to make sure they haven’t forgotten to pack anything, especially the all-important bathing suit and tanning lotion and all the $$$ they can get their hands on. K. Westerhouse hV The Typical Student Emerson is an expression-oriented school. It focuses on artis- tic and creative communication. Students are encouraged to be unique and to develop themselves fully. “I don’t think there is such a thing as a typical student at Emerson,” says senior Ellyn Evans. According to Vivian Geary, “That’s the point, isn’t it?” Be- cause Emerson is a relatively small school, students have more of a chance to be an individual. Lisa Margeson, a senior in Communication Studies says, “There is no typical student. At large universities, there are classes of typical students, but not here.” Students express their individuality through their opinions, the activities they are involved in and especially through the way they dress. Everyone has their own look, but most can fit in some sort of category. There are students who dress in black from head to toe, or wear second hand or vintage clothes they bought while “thrifting”. ■ “The Emerson color should be black instead of purple gold, because everyone wears it so much,” says sophomore Kristen Torgen. There are also students who prefer the casual look, baggy sweaters faded ripped jeans. “High top sneakers are typical for women. So are oversized shirts, running pants and chains for belts,” says Vivian Geary. Transfer sophomore Alison Guiffra says, “There are some students who have the total L.L. Bean look and some who are half dead-head, half punker. There’s everything from K-mart to Nieman-Marcus. I guess it’s the city.” “When it comes to clothes at Emerson, anything goes,” says Ellyn Evans. As for activities, “I’d say most students are in at least one organization, even if it’s one of the radio stations or E.I.V.,” says Lisa Margeson. Lisa also says, “The typical student is not into writing papers and likes to procrastinate.” “A typical Emerson student misses one class a week because of meetings or a late night at Crossroads or the Rat,” says Vivian Geary. “They also cram in a big way to get things done.” “To me,” says freshman Lynne Palombo, “a typical student is trendy and rebellious and looking for an identity.” 26 ' p£n} ic ktr HAfoicu r e=i ' Qr pAI JXVffS 6 Lac ■ PAm £ i+A 5 £RS Rp 5ci IPT roimDSocfr5 Orientation Leaders: Buffy Walker, Carol Regis, Marla Zuk, Leanne Morrow, Lisa Ricci, Russel Steele, Carla F uentes, Toni Norris, Gidget Gaines, Liza Persky, Jaimie Persky, John Staples.

Orientation began this year when the new students received a yellow record in the mail narrated by the Orientation coor- dinators. It introduced its listeners to the Emerson way of life. Orientation week was run by a group of highly energized student leaders. Events included Sunday Night Live, Commuter Move-in, Playfair, and of course the New Student Revue. Emerson On The Hatch Joelle Meehan, Ellyn Evans, and Holly Jenkinson set out to recruit some new Zeta members. The Hatch Shell staff, under the supervision of Lauren Planit, began planning for this event in April. The weather was on Emerson’s side at the 2nd annual Hatch Shell Fair in September. Emersonians enjoyed a sun-filled day on the Esplanade until the skies opened in the late afternoon. The “Hatch Shell’’ is a combination concert and organizational fair. While the band Beatle Mania performed, students talked to representatives from Emer- son’s wide range of clubs, performance groups, and Greek organizations. Raffles, a giant twister board, frisbee games, and the Theta water balloon toss also littered the grass in front of the Hatch Shell. Libby Jackson walks around in search of prospective Sigma members.

The fall retreat was held at Thompson’s Island in Boston Harbor. The Ropes Course was the highlight ot the morning. This teambuilder challenges groups to find ways over walls, logs, and trees. The winter retreat was held in New Hampshire. Emerson Administra- tors served as facilitators in workshops about delegation, staff recruit- ment, and breaking down barriers. Leadership Weekend was an excel- lent opportunity to set goals and share ideas. Ellen Szorady enjoys the sun at Thompson ' s Island during the Fall retreat Andrea Gianetti.

The regional conference was held Novem- ber 12-15 in Hartford, Connecticut. Erin Gal- lagher, Holly Jenkinson, Liz O’Donnell, and Steve Sager accompanied Assistant Dean of Students, Gail DiSabatino and Assistant Director of Student Life, Sue Locklin. The National Conference was held in Washing- ton, D.C. February 16-21. This time Emerson sent Nicholas Caprio, David Carleton, Avi Dines, Mark Donovan, Erin Gallagher, Fred Hurder, Holly Jen- kinson, Kelly O’Brien, Liz O’Donnell, Angel San- tana, and Ellen Szorady. At NACA, delegates hone their leadership skills, negotiate with agents of campus entertainers, and share programming ideas with other schools. 1 4 Emerson’s display at the reverse exhibit hall.

Lisa Ricci, Parents Weekend Chair, enjoys the weekend now that most of the work is done. I . 0 38 Start with a handful of students, add a whole lot of enthusiasm and you have the recipe for success. Anyone who attended Parents Weekend ’87, would agree. The weekend was “Premiere Perfor- mance’’ and it really lived up to its name. Over 650 parents were on hand that weekend to witness Emerson at its best. Lisa Ricci was the Chair of Parent’s Weekend and its advisor was Assistant Dean of Students, Gail DiSabatino. Under their direction it was a memorable event. The weekend began with “A Touch of Class’’, a 1940’s style nightclub show put together by Coordinator Erica Potter. Parents were treated to an entertaining production, featuring students from classes ’88, ’89, ’90 and ’91. Saturday dawned bright and sunny perfect for the early morning Registration and Continental Breakfast at the Ames Building on Commonwealth Ave. Parents were met by Hospitality Co-Coordinators, Lyndon Eichar and Cedric Harmon, dressed in tuxedos and a smile. They also met some of Emerson’s faculty as they picked up schedules of the day’s events. The Introduc- tion followed in the Church of the Covenant on Newbury Street as parents were shown just what we are about here at Emerson. Co-Coordinators, Mark Donovan and Kendra Sherwood put together this spotlight on Emerson, focusing on Emerson’s organizations and clubs. Emerson’s Varsity Club sponsored a 1-mile Eun Run, both parents and students were encouraged to enter. Senior Resident Assistant, Greg Pryor won the event. Saturday night ended with the Dinner Dance held in the Westin Hotel in Copley Place. The evening’s theme “All That Glitters is Gold’’ set the mood for a glamorous affair, as parents dined and danced the night away to the sound of the Cartells. The Musical Theatre Society performed for the parents, highlighting famous musicals touring through Boston, truly a “Premier Performance’’. Dinner Dance Coordinator, Michelle Lundquist organized this affair whose attendance was higher than any Dinner Dance previous to this one. Sunday brought the weekend to an end, but not without a final “Bravo! Bravo!’’. This was the theme for the Brunch held at the Westin Hotel and Coordinated by Joelle Meehan. Emerson College President Allen Koenig and other administration took this chance to again socialize with the parents. The Brunch drew to a close with a slide show of the weekend prepared by Em- erson’s black and white photography magazine. Developed Images. So as the applause died and the curtain was drawn on the “Premier Performance’’ of ' 87, the players slowly made their way off stage. Parents and students said their goodbyes, as the contented glow of the weekend settled upon them. Waiting until next year, to meet at Emerson College and experience the excitement of Parent’s Weekend ’88. - M. Lundquist Parents Weekend A Night With The Stars m Hand Me Down Night was co- sponsored by the Student Govern- ment Association and the Program- ming Council this year. Following tradition, the outgoing presidents of Emerson’s many student organiza- tions handed their positions down to the incoming presidents of 1988-89. After a long year of hard work and dedication, most of the outgoing presidents were eager to do so.

David Chack 56 not given a visa and Dorina “doesn’t really know why she was released.” “They (Russian Government) knew how close our family is, how good our relationship is with each other,” said Parifsky, “I believe it was something to sepa- rate us, to break the hearts of the family.” Hillel hosted Paritsky’s visit and a group of Hillel mem- bers and their Director, David Chack attended the soviet protest rally on Sunday in Washington D C. Over 200,000 people gathered in order to convince Soviet leader Gorba- chev to let the Refusniks emigrate. According to Chack, many Jews are punished in Russia once they make public their religion. “They are shunned and ostracized in their own Homeland,” said Chack. All privileges and freedom are faken from the Refusniks and they are barely able to make a living. Groups such as the United Jewish Appeal raise money for Jews in the United States and in Russia. Money is smuggled into Russia as objects of value. Refus- niks then sell them on the Russian Black Market. “Emerson’s Hillel is a supporter of the Refusnik cause and has a dedication to conscience raising on the the Emerson campus”, said Chack. Hillel hopes to “adopt” a Refusnik and will continue to work towards a resolution of the current situation. Hillel began its support of this issue with a concert honoring Pianist Sergey Rachmanikoff, a Soviet Jew who wished to flee Russia. The concert show- cased his music and drew over one hundred participants. Hillel encourages people from all over campus to join this cause for Soviety jewry. - M. Lundquist As Sovief Premier Mikhail Gorbachev visits the United States promoting his glasnost, Soviet Jewish Emigre Dor- ina Peritsky is informing America about the persecution of jews in Russia. 21-year-old Paritsky held a press conference on Friday, December 4th at Noon in Emerson’s Student Union in order to increase public awareness of the refusniks. Refus- niks is a term given to Soviet Jews who are refused visa because of their religion, according to Paritsky. The press conference began with Dean of Students Ron Ludman welcoming Dorina to the College. Ereshman Ja- cob Spil also welcomed Dorina, on behalf of Emerson’s Jewish organization, Hillel. “Dorina strives for freedom for her parents and those who practice Judaism,” said Spil. Only recently released from Russia, Dorina has spent the last two months in Israel and now is in the United States to coincide with Gorbachev’s Summit meeting with President Reagan. Dorina’s parents, Alexander and Pau- lina Paritsky both declared themselves Jews in a time when Russians are restricting the emigration of its people. Soviet officials say refusniks are not allowed visa because many are threats to state security. “My father knows no secrets, he is not a threat,” said Paritsky. After announc- ing their Jewism, he Paritsky family was harassed, both physically and mentally. Swastikas were painted on their home and Alexander was sent to a Siberian labor camp from 1 978- 1981. The Paritsky’s applied for visas and were all refused the first time. Dorina then sent letters to officials hoping for permission through other channels. It took elev- en years for her to leave Russia, she will never be able to return. “It would be too painful to return. Its not even something I could do for my parents,” said Paritsky. Dor- ina also knows her government would never allow her to return.

Describe It! ‘‘Describe it!” you say ‘‘Describe it!” Describe it. Voices: urging, chattering, curious, asking. Voices, demanding. Describe it? How can I? How does one explain another realm of knowledge, a world of experience? How do my lips form the feelings my tongue transforms the images, into something you can comprehend? It’s stuck deep inside tangled up within me part of me. All the emotions the ghost struggles of the night wraith memories, wrestling in the day. The long lonely walks, the meandering ways, the people. It won’t come out. There’s too much inside. You’ll have to come in, come in and share with me, come in. Sheryl Dyer, 1987. contest work AUTO EROTIC Suzanne Kammlott “I’ve got a ' 64 Valient, handful of valium, coupla beers really do me right.’’ Circle Jerks, “Wild in the Streets’’ When I was seven. Dad left with Tina, a cocktail waitress. She had a B. A. in Dead Languages, but her real love was night life. Me and Mom moved from the spruce riddled suburbs of Pennsylvania. Pine City lawns were fresh cut as dollar bills and worms dried like shoelace trying to cross the street. A place where my neighbor’s car never would have exploded. But, in Manhattan, things were different. It was a warm Thanksgiving Day in the city. A thick hickoryish smell drifted in the air. Mom was on the phone with “Uncle” Sal in Seacaucus, insisting that Dad was still at a welder’s convention in Minnesota, France. Whenever “Uncle” Sal came over, he gave me a quarter to go play in my room. A dull holiday: I always had to be quiet and wipe the faucet after I washed my hands. At least Dad had sent a new, mechanical pup to keep me happy while he was gone. I named him Bonkers II: bright blue and his yap was more like a snap, but he was always ready for a good show. “Don’t worry Bonkers,” I whispered in his soh, sewn ear. “You can do it.” Slowly, I wound Bonkers up to his best and set him on the floor, yapping and flipping away. I heard a sudden siren cry out- side. I turned to look, and wasn’t watching while Bonkers somersaulted right down the stairwell. “Bonkers!!” I shouted, “come back!” The siren still blared as if it didn’t care, while my new pup flipped furiously down half a flight, until the tenth step when his head suddenly snapped off; fell about four feet to the bottom floor. Bonkers was no more. I knew we should have rehearsed. It was the worst! Above the siren cry, I heard Mom holler. “Lieber Gott!” She knew I killed him! I threw the audience back onto my bed. Made them swear they knew nothing, and scrambled into the kitchen where Mom was, with her head out the window, holding unruly turkey innards in one hand, and the phone in the other. I could have ex- 68 plained everything, but she was watching something else more exciting across the street. “Mash potatoes got more brains than you!!!’’ Thoroughly drenched, the blue Fury smoldered, cooled down, allowing the firemen to finally leave. Later on, I crossed the street to where the gutted auto rested like a great saurian skull, and stared at its gaping eye, lined with web cracked glass. In- side the black cab, where the seats were, guilty amber bottles remained scattered: undisguised and sooty as Grecian urns. Lengths of burnt seat belts, unbuckled in the heat of the moment, lay dazed, dangled. The antenna was skewered like a shish- kabob stick; and on the fried floorboard, a carbonized tool set was strewn about like funery bones. Then came the sound of dragging gravel. Danger! I turned, frightened. It was only Pitch stalking up behind me, luring one leg behind like lame and stretching his face out of shape. With hopes to win another ball card, I foisted two fingers up my nose and crossed my eyes until the buildings turned to vapors and I couldn’t see straight. Still, Spike won. Hoodlums could make more horrible faces than regular people. Ritchie poked his head into the carcassed cab and sniffed with deep disguist. I stood behind him and sniffed, too. “Hey Ritchie!’’ I said. “Hey what?’’ He winced and turned, starting to fish out the rest of his tools with fireplace tongs. I watched, and wanted to ask him if he knew who blew up his car. Was it that wallet carrying thin man? Could my Mom really have been right? He might have gotten mad if I asked. Instead I said, “When’s it gonna go to the scrap heap?’’ “Scrap heap?!’’ he scowled. “Why you . . . awh, I dunno know. Guess as soon as some guy from the insurance agency gets done assessin’ it, I guess. I musta parked it over a dam blanket of something! Betcha it was that crummy catalytic converter that did it, gave me this . . . this convertible hibachi!’’ He pulled out a socket wrench, scaly with cinders. I wanted to know what a catalytic converter was: and who hired him the Italian government — and what for? I started to ask Ritchie about the catalytic converter: would I recognize one if he wasn’t wearing silver glasses and trying to blow up my Mom’s car with a blanket, but Spike was gone. I looked in a cricle, but he was nowhere around. His finest face. I stood and wondered where he was when the Fury’s underbelly gave way, and cracked open with a loud creak. Water, ashes gushed everywhere. What did I do? I got too worried and ran quickly across the street so Mom wouldn’t yell at me for hanging out with a hood- lum or his broken car, but when I got home in a hurry, she and “Uncle” Sal were already picking at the last of the leftovers with unconcerned smiles. “Hey!” I shouted. “Save some for Dad!” and “Uncle” Sal just laughed, end. contest work X, ■ ' ilJ»Ulil]ta|i- Emerson Comedy Workshop 74 I It- Theatre 76 77 A CHORUS LINE 79 1 il i ! 2110 Sigma Pi Theta % Hi m hm • W Sigma Pi Theta Sigma Pi Theta is a Social Sorority] founded in 1979 by five women who saw! a need for a group that would work to] enhance the social and personal develop-] ment of all women on campus.

They finished with an 8-8 record, but, according to coach Jim Bradley, could easily have been 12-4. Expectations were high because 7 of the 9 starters returned, including the entire field of first baseman Matt Nichols, second baseman Tim Neverett, shortstop Tom Tate, and third baseman Erik Sherman. Sophomore Jamie Huth was consistent behind the plate, catch- ing the majority of the games. He split some time with junior R.J. Martin, who filled the DH role. Senior pitcher Darrel Caneiro (3-1) lived up to his claim and did an excellent job on the mound along with Larry Potash, Tim McGrath, Dave Schmidt, and Bill Keeler. The baseball Lions got off to their best start ever, a 6-3 record. They recorded win number 3 by dismantling Mass. College of Pharmacy 17-3. Playing under the lights on Clemente Field, Em- erson was supported strongly by the pitching of Darrel Caneiro. The Lions played in front of 150 people, the largest ever for an Emerson sporting event. The following day Tim McGrath pitched a fine ga me leading the Lions to a 10-2 victory over North Shore Community College. However, in the second game Emerson’s bats didn’t respond as they lost 7-2. With a record of 4-2 they crushed Mass. College of Pharmacy 13-3, and with the hitting of Glenn Allen, Sherman, McGrath, Nichols, and Martin pummeled Daniel Webster 16-2 in the first game of a double header. Emerson couldn’t produce any more offense and lost the second game 6-5. Emerson’s leading hitters were Glenn Allen (.401), Tom Tate (.398), Tim Neverett (.387), Erik Sherman (.345), and Matt Nich- ols (.339). The outfield was solidified with switch hitting sophomore Glenn Allen, who provided leadership and stability. Along with senior Rob Ruzensky the Lions were able to help some of the younger players learn like Mark Hutchinson, Tom D’ Andre, and Steve Masciarelli, by setting good examples. With the loss of six seniors it looks like next year’s team could struggle. But with the excellent talent already available and more on its way the baseball team shouldn’t have any difficulty in equaling their record.

(Anon.) E i: SOCCER SOCCER by Bryan Hoertdoerfer BOOTERS NET TWO SHUTOUT WINS Emerson Soccer began their season with a dismal 8-0 loss to Daniel Webster under the guidance of Athletic Director James Peckham. After the hiring of new head coach Bryan Hoertdoerfer, the team be- gan it’s drive of breaking their three year winless streak. The next game saw Emerson fall behind Bun- ker Hill C.C. 2-0 during the first half, but they man- aged to fight their way back to a 2-2 halftime tie. However, they lost the game 6-2 and went on to face Anna Maria. Playing on a cold day and wet field, Emerson managed to hold Anna Maria scoreless for the first half. Even though the booters had their chances they could not capitalize. With about three minutes left in the game and the score still tied at zero Emerson’s Phil Painter put one in the back of the net from a pass by Avi Dines. The Emerson Lions held on to their win recording their first shutout ever. With their record a 1-2, Emerson looked ahead, to hopefully improve. But with tough competition the task was not so simple. Emerson managed only one more win, a 1-0 shutout of Mass. College of Pharma- cy. John Sensio scored from Mike Barron and goalie David Blass kept the other team at bay while record- ing his second shutout win of the year. “Due to lack of skill Emerson had to rely on team- work and hustle.’’ With only two graduating seniors, Paul Stickel and Sue Hay, on the entire team and 14 returning lettermen the future for Emerson Soccer looks bright. With the addition of new recruits and hopefully better facilities and ideal class schedules the booters can practice more and improve their record from 2-9 to 7-4.

Even though head coach Drew Taylor was absent for most of the season, assistant coach Jack Stewart did an admi- rable job filling in. With lack of proper ice time and a low number of players, Emerson was never able to maintain a decent win- ning streak. Even though the icemen didn’t win as many games as they hoped to, they were able to enjoy the game with a special enthusiasm. In the 21st of February their team spirit carried them to their first victory of the season. They beat Rhode Island School of Design by a score of 6-5. After R.I.S.D. took a 1-0 lead, Emer- son’s Tom Tate and Matt Labov scored goals to take a 2-1 lead. In the second period R.I.S.D. scored two goals to lead 3-2, but Emerson was not to be denied. Jamie Huth and Bruce Goldman put two more in the back of the net to retake the lead 4-3. R.I.S.D. thought they took the lead for good when they made it i 5-4, but Tim Burton tied it up at 5. With three minutes left in the game Jason Bourgault turned a Jamie Huth pass into the game winning goal. Jason’s tally sealed their see-saw victory over R.I.S.D. Next year’s team looks to be even stronger as the Lions keep returning goal scorer Jason Bourgault and assist leader Jamie Huth. Even though Emerson will loose seniors Tom Tate, Jeff Poyant, Tim Burton, and Jim Marshall they look toward to their : returning lettermen and new talent. Although the team lacked many essential ingredients, they I clung together and were able to help next year’s team by setting i a good working example. This example vaulted the Emerson Hockey Team into a new and tougher league. “With the help of I athletic director James Peckham, Emerson will play in a NCAA Division III Small College League.’’ Quote = “With the help of Athletic Director James Peckham, Emerson will play in a NCAA Division III Small College League.’’ 104 Emerson’s goalie, Chris Kinch, stops a hot shot against Daniel Webster.

Rayon Thomas was named to the Commonwealth Coast Conference All-star team, averaging over 24 points per game. Thomas scored a career high 40 points against Salve Regina and hit above his aver- age 7 times. Mike Isenberg, showing tremendous im- provement, averaged 9 points and 7 re- bounds per game. Mike scored a career high 23 points versus Mass. College of Pharmacy and was 10 for 11 from the field against Salve. Larry Potash scored a game high 23 points against U.S. Coast Guard Academy and helped the Lion hoopsters overcome a 38 point halftime defecit. Isenberg added 20 more, but it was not enough as top ranked Coast Guard snuck away with a 14 point win. Potash, who averaged 12 points and 8 rebounds a game, also scored a career high 27 against Wentworth. Sophomore Rich Cresta hit 4 of 6 three point bombs against Curry, as he collected his career high of 23 points. Cresta, who scored a game high 21 points against Roger Williams, averaged 9.5 points and 3.2 steals per game, and set an Emerson record of 1 1 steals against Coast Guard. Emerson finally broke into the win column with an 80-7 ' ' come from behind victory over Mass. College of Pharmacy. With Rayon Thomas (32 points, 12 rebounds) and Mike Isenberg (14 points, 12 rebounds) leading the way, the Lions overcame an eleven point halftime defecit with 52 points in the second half. Intense defense sparked the Lions as Thomas ignited for 25 points in the last 20 minutes. Tim McGrath scored 10 points, in- cluding six clutch free throws in the last four minutes to secure the victory. Emerson lost an exciting game to Salve Regina 102-87, despite shooting over 60% from the floor. Rayon Thomas, who rocked the Newport crowd with two thundering dunks, scored 29 points, while Mike Isen- berg iced 22 points and Cresta added 19 more. With no seniors graduating, Emerson Bas- ketball looks to improve upon their record next year. Along with outstanding coach Joe Delgardo the team should fair well in the Commonwealth Coast Conference. Quote: ‘‘Rayon Thomas rocked the New- port crowd with two thundering dunks and 29 points against Salve.” 106 THE BERKELEY 107 WOMEN’S BASKETBALL by Kendra Sherwood WOMEN COURT FOUR Another season of women’s basketball has passed by, but not without tribula- tion. The women Lions finished their sea- son at 4-20, with two of their victories over Mass. College of Pharmacy. The oth- er two wins were over Daniel Webster and Rivier, both on the road. The year began with 12 players and coach Neville. With the departure of Da- vid Neville before the first game, the team needed a new coach and found two in Ann Hudner and Bryan Hoertdoerfer. It wasn’t until the last game of the first semester that Emerson chalked up one in the win column. The game went down to the wire with Emerson prevailing 63-62 over Daniel Webster. The women hoop- sters were led by Suzy Allaire and Sa- mantha Rutherford, who contributed for the game winning points. With less than 15 seconds in the game, Allaire stole the ball and passed to Rutherford who sank the shot and drew the foul. Sam calmly sank the free throw to seal the victory. At the start of the second semester Emerson’s numbers shrank to 6. The de- parture of Rutherford left the point guard position open and Dianne Dirlam was called upon to take over. Now that the back court was set, the coaches focused on the front court. With freshman Sophie Hill and Charla Hymes starting, a lot of pressure was placed on senior foward Kendra Sher- wood. Freshmen center Merrilee Morrison added the dimension that was needed to produce a quality team. Because of the age and inexperience of more than half the team, the women Lions managed to win only three more games. The next victory saw Emerson defeat Mass. College of Pharmacy by 1 1 points. The leaders of the game were Dianne Dir- lam (21 points) and Allaire (18 points). After losing to Rivier at home by 24, Em- erson beat them in New Hampshire 60- 55. The score went back and forth the entire game, but last second clutch play- ing Suzy Allaire, Nancy Weisman, and Merrilee Morrison were the key to victory. Since Rivier was pressing, they left the forwards open under the basket. Allaire headily made a cross-court pass to Weis- man who layed it up for two points. When Rivier couldn’t score their turn down, Al- laire repeated the same play, but Morri- son scored the 2 points to put the game out of reach. Even though the team didn’t win many games they were led by Commonwealth Coast Conference All-star guard Suzy Al- laire (32 three-point shots, 34 steals, 59 assists, 66% free throw percentage, 20 points per game, and 408 total points), Dianne Dirlam (39 assists, 16 points per game, and 312 total points), Kendra Sherwood (87 rebounds and 6 points per game), freshmen Charla Hymes (88 re- bounds), Sophie Hill (58 offensive re- bounds), and Merrilee Morrison (22 blocks). The team, without question, will suffer from the loss of their three seniors, but have built a nucleus upon which they can grow.

Had they all played to their potential, mentally and physically every day, Emerson could easily have been 10-4. The team had a total batting average of .398 and their on base average was over .500. The top hitters for the team were: Suzy Allaire (.708 batting average, 25 runs, 34 hits, and 26 stolen bases), Dianne Dirlam (.610 batting average, 25 hits, and 23 RBI’s), Maria Fernandez (.476 batting average, 9 stolen bases), Betsy Ventresca (.462 batting average and 18 hits), and captain Julie Baldasarre (.444 batting average, 16 hits and 2 RRI’s). Under the direction of converted baseball coach Jim Bradley and coach Bryan Hoertdoerfer Emerson defeated Wentworth, Salve Regina and Pine Manor twice, and lost four games by one run. “What turned their season around after losing three straight, one run games was their eeked out victory over Salve Regina.’’ The game started with Emerson batting as cold as the weather at the UMass field. However, as the day warmed up so did the Emerson bats. At the end of 2 V 2 innings Salve lead 4-1, but in the bottom of the third the Lions roared back with 4 runs on 4 hits to lead 5-4. Salve recaptured the lead scoring 3 runs in the top of the fourth. After one scoreless inning, Emerson chewed up Salve in the bottom of the fifth, lashing out 3 singles and scoring 6 runs, assuming an 1 1-7 lead. In the top of the seventh with the Lions holding on to a slim lead, and a woman on third and one out, shortstop Dianne Dirlam caught a line drive, then turned and threw the ball to third baseman Maria Fernandez for the third out and the 1 1- 10 victory. Although their fielding was sub-par, the spirit on the field kept the Lions alive. Along with Dianne Dirlam and captain Julie Baldsarre as outstanding fielders, the team will also miss seniors Margo Baker and Suzy Allaire, selected to the Northeast Intercollegiate Softball Conference, Allstar Team, and coach Bryan Hoertdoerfer. Quote: “What turned their season around after losing three straight one run games, was their eeked out victory over Salve Regina.’’ Ill MEN’S TENNIS Net Quite Yet by Phil White The 1988 Men’s tennis team consisted ot eight players, featuring four seniors: Co-captain, Tom McCrory, Co-captain, Bob Kirk, Dave Kovaleski, and Dan Ro- senberg. These seniors had played on the 1987 team, so each had been exposed to NCAA division III competition. Through their leadership, the Emerson tennis team managed to win two out of five matches. Joe Kanarek and Jason Bourgault were the two juniors on the team. They are expected to return to the team next year, accompanied by teammates Ed Capp, sophomore, and Matt Rice, freshman. These four will be a solid core for future Emerson Men’s tennis. Tom McCrory took the honor of playing as Emerson’s number one. He proved to be a tenacious competitor in defeating tough opponents from Anna Maria, Went- worth, and Salve Regina colleges. Each of these matches went the distance of three sets, but Tom always proved himself as victor. Suffolk University and Anna Maria Col- lege proved to be no match for Emerson this year as Emerson routed them by the scores of 6-3 and 7-2, respectively. Re- flected in these scores was the depth of the Emerson team. However, the team had rocky times against Wentworth and Curry, probably the stronger teams in the area. Both of these matches were played away during terrible April weather, but the wind and the cold affects all players on both teams. The last match of the season was the most disappointing of the season, mainly because only half the team could make the trip down to beautiful Newport. Salve Regina took seven of the nine points. On the positive side, Tom McCrory played his toughest match of the season by winning the third set in a tie breaker, 7-5. “Overall, the team proved that Emer- son can do well against area competition and that individual effort and talent can be appreciated even in a team loss.’’ Hopefully, Emerson’s tennis teams will gradually increase in strength each year, as this was only the second year for Men’s tennis at Emerson College.

The wom- en’s Tennis team had that chance, but finished the season at 1-6. Having tennis in the fall was advantageous because the summer left them in shape and fired up to play. With 14 signed up, the team dwin- dled down to four by season’s end. When it came time for the first match the team was without a coach, but Mrs. Peckham took over the reigns and lead the team to their first and only victory over Suffolk University. The Lion’s then helped their own cause by finding coach Sheila Smith before the next meet. With the ad- dition of coach Smith the team looked forward with enthusiasm, but heavier course loads and other commitments re- duced the size of the team. By midseason Emerson began to get discouraged having to start every meet with three matches in the loss column. Because the opposition had a full roster they were able to play with fresh players every match, whereas the Lion Ladies couldn’t. The team didn’t win anymore matches but put up a hell of a fight.
