REVEILLE 1987 M 4-f 1 311 a. 2. The Madrigal Dinner 4 is more than -a nice tradition. It is the main university function that brings Christmas spirit to campus and gives music majors a chance to perform. Adapted physical education offers students the opportunity to utilize instruction techniques with the disabled. Both students and participants profit from the program. g £ A special grant C $ W0 made it all pos- sible for Cheryl Hoffstetter Towns. Her : position as coordinator and 1 counselor at the university i was created to fulfill the needs of the Access Grant. With a rather 4 dismal 4-6 sea- g Q son, the Tiger football team faced tough competition. One drawback was the high number of injuries the players had. — — Not only the outer appearance of the campus changed this year. More changes were in sight or forecast then shadows on years to come. Turn the page to look at what made this year a special one. They are back. Tau Kappa Epsilon, the J I world ' s largest fraternity, has been reactivated on campus. After they dedicated one semester to a strong pledge drive, the new TKE chapter proved ready to plunge into Greek activities. Inside In Sight is a special publication inserted in the back of the book. It allows you a quick look at the highlights of the year. Most i the " in” topics are covered, from budget cuts to the Sheridan renovation to AIDS. 1986 IN SIGHT -McCartney Hall houses the school of business.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) the beginning ; it was hardly tangible. A certain innovative mood was prevailing on campus . Sheridan Coliseum was closed down , patiently awaiting its renovation. President Tomanek announced his retirement after 40 years of service to the university. With the search for a new president long-term plans in 3fg hP for renovation of buildings and an extensive automation of the campus , drastic changes were in sight. On top of all that it was an election year , involving everyone in the question about the right sight of issues. Changes forecast their shadows.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) Opening in Sight But not all of the changes foreshadowed were hoped for. At semester break , Agnew Hall closed down. Budget cuts soon forced the athletic department to cut three sports, while other departments cut wherever possible. Despite these dismal projections, the upbeat spirit of innovation remained. Forsyth Library was completely remodeled, budgets were revised, fund- drives pushed, and Sheridan ' s renovation started. In the end , it all fell together, making this and other years to come the best in sight. CAMPUS COLOPS -The university’s campus is known for its beauty.

After the first weeks on campus everybody knew an action- filled year was in sight, and they were right. It was campus life at its peak lor the 4,000 Starship fans . The concert attracted an older crowd, as Starship has already made musical history.

As the first week is always characterized by confusion for new students, those events offered a welcome chance to relax. T hese days it is hard to find a good meal for a dollar. However, that is just what Memorial Union Acti- vities Board offered the first week of school. MUAB, Student Government Association and Block and Bridle organized the second annual Welcome Back picnic on the campus quad on Monday, Aug. 25. The large turnout of 3,000 or more people made the picnic a success for the organizers, I. B. Dent, director of student activities, said everything from the band Stardust to the weather turned out great. Although meeting new people and enjoying the sounds of the local band were welcomed opportunities for students, the main attraction seemed to be the food, The $1 meal included roast beef, potato salad, baked beans, water- melon, and Pepsi. " This year ' s picnic was much better because there were more people, " Matt Raugewitz, Wellsville junior, said. " It is fun to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, " Raugewitz said. “Last year the food was questionable, " Jeff Henry, Hays senior, said. " There ' s just no way to mess up roast beef. " In addition to the food, music, and meeting new and old friends, the Panhellenic Council sponsored a table promoting Greek life and featuring memorabilia from each of the three sororities. Michelle Rohn, Colby senior, said Panhellenic Council provided a sign-up sheet to encourage girls to go through formal rush. " We wanted everyone to know that Greek life is great, " she said, " We wanted to do this through a joint effort. " Dent said this year Block and Bridle volunteered to be in charge of serving at the picnic. MUAB sponsored a table where they gave out discount cards for future productions. Brenda Leiker, Oakley senior, said MUAB was hoping to draw more people to upcoming performances through their involvement at the picnic. Besides the picnic, MUAB sponsored a dance at DJs, 7th and Main, featuring an Illinois band. Upon entering the door, guests received a ticket with a number. During the evening, many prizes were given away, including Miller neon lights, T-shirts, posters and hats.

Concerts and the performance of a mime troupe were included in the week ' s special events. o kick off the year oh an entertaining note, the Memo- rial Union Activities Board offered a samp- ling of its activities during Blue Jean Week in September. " The week includes one presentation of each of the main • series sponsored by MUAB, such as the Gallery series, the Encore series and the Sundowner, " LB. Dent, MUAB sponsor, said. A broad spectrum of events is sponsored so the student body and the community can experience different types of cultural activities, he said. “It was started because we felt we needed something to show off the various activities the board does, " Dent said. " It gets people into the union to see what the MUAB committee does.” The first Sundowner concert and Gallery Series featured Dave Wopat, brother of Tom Wopat of Dukes of Hazzard fame. Wopat, a one- man band, made his backup music with a portable computer. Another activity brought an alumnus back to campus. Phil Joseph, a 1975 graduate, returned as a member of Mimewock, a mime troupe from Kansas City, Ks. A game night in the Union recreation area allowed students to enjoy free bowling, pool and movies. The turnout was so good, that the game night has become a monthly standing activity since then. Guitarist and fiddler Mike Cross with country artists Robin and Linda William were featured in the Encore Series. Many of the talents MUAB brought to campus for Blue Jean Week and throughout the year are recruited at the National Association for Collegiate Activities regional and national conventions. Comedian Jeff Valdez was scheduled from a regional convention. Comedy Night, from the Spotlight, featured Valdez with Todd Jordan and Mike Lindsay. Jordan, who won the Colorado contest of Showtime ' s Funniest Person in America, opened for Valdez while Lindsay was the master of ceremonies. Valdez opened two comedy clubs in Colorado Springs, Colo., one called the Comedy Comer. And he now has a syndicated TV show, Jeff Valdez presents Almost Live from the Comedy Corner. “He ' s supposed to be opening a club in Wichita. " Dent said.

Gross Memorial Coliseum was unrecognizable. All day. members of Memorial Union Activities Board and Equestrian Enterprises, Inc., had been padding the floor to protect the hooves of the precious stallions. Blue spotlights focused on the red curtain through which the first stallions would step out to perform. Austin Miles, narrator, introduced the different exercises and told the history of the Lipizzan stallions. Walt Disney ' s motion picture, " The Miracle of the White Stallions, " featuring tire rescue of the Lipizzan stallions from Czechoslovakia by General Patton, made the Lipizzaners famous in America. Miles asked the audience to give a PREMIERE -The audience holds its breath while stallion Capriola performs the airs above the ground lor the first time In his career, (Photo by Don King) hand in memory of Patton, and then the curtain was lifted for the first stallions, The first exercise was a pas de deux, where two trained Lipizzaners are ridden through a two-man exercise, executing riding lines and figures with mirror-image precision. The next presentation in the three- hour program was a demonstration of the classical training the stallions have to go through. The training is adopted from The Spanish Riding School, Vienna, the traditional home of the Lipizzaners. “Only few stallions get to graduate from the training on the ground to the airs above the ground, " Miles said. The Hays audience had the chance to witness the very first performance of stallion Capriola, who had just graduated from the school on the ground. It was his first performance of the airs above the ground, the most difficult and dangerous exercise to a young stallion. The audience congratulated Capriola with warm applause after the stallion had finished his performance. Only the most exceptionally gifted PRECIOUS -Each of the Lipizzan stallions costs $25,000.

The show takes 14 of the $25,000 stallions on the road, touring all over the North and South American continents, " We are on the road 250 days of the year. I ' ve been with the show for five years, and I don ' t mind the road life at all, " Clay Thomas Reed, rider, said. Manager of the show is Billie Hoyt. She has been out on the road for seven years and said she doesn ' t get tired of it a bit. " Really, I don’t have anything to do with the horses. I just do the management. It ' s a great job. Whatever building I walk into, people walk up to me and thank me for bringing this show to them. It makes you feel good. We have a great group of guys, and we are like a little family, " Hoyt said. Traveling with 14 horses might not seem an easy task, but to the members of the show, it ' s not a problem because their horses are not just horses; they are a special kind. " We don’t have any problems with our horses. They are royal, and they act it, " Miles s aid. Bettina Heinz Lipizzan Stallions Oktoberfest led to a current change in nationality. For one day, everybody was German. The weather showed insight and spared the test from rain. A large crowd was therefore attracted, too large maybe for those who showed up late to find out that all bierocks were sold out. B ierrocks. Beer. Bratwurst. it was all there. At sight of the Polka band, the German costumes, and the German inscrintions on the booths, those who didn’t have any German heritage to show off just adopted it for one day, And it was a funfilled day, for both participants and visitors. " We had a very good turnout. Compared to the last couple of years, the crowd was quite comparable. They showed up late, but they stayed longer. First we had cooler weather, but then it warmed up. The crowd was very well-behaved, " Herb Songer, university coordinator for Oktoberiest, said. Over the past years, Oktoberfest has been constantly improving. “A lot more student groups are involved. I think it has really changed. For one thing, the physical structure of the booths has really improved. The student groups have done a good job in getting more permanent and nice- looking booths, " Songer said. The students, who got off for Oktoberfest, were impressed with the turnout, too, " I was impressed by the turnout. It was neat so many people went and the different groups provided a wide variety. It was nice that we got school off. The food seemed to be a real money maker, " Chris Magana, Garden Qty junior, said. " I could only be there for a while, but I enjoyed the food and the crafts, " Dave Wilcots, Philadelphia graduate student, said. Besides being a fun day, Oktoberfest also provides an entertaining lesson on the Volga German heritage. " It was fantastic, I didn ' t understand much about the Volga German customs before, and it helped me to that, " Steve Hall, Concordia senior, said, “We had a good ' turnout. The fest has improved a lot. In the past there has been put too much emphasis on the ’beerthing ' instead of the ethnic festivity, " Francis Schippers, Volga-German Society president, said. " To see that many people in a small area without trouble is unusual. It was also good to have TOP SELLER -Beer Is not tho most important aspect of Oktoberfest, but certainly a part of it.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) A GERMAN GERMAN -Markus Wild, Stuttgart, West Germany Ireshman, enjoys the German atmosphere at Oktoberlest. For one student, Okto- berfest in Hays had a special meaning. Markus Wild, freshman from Stuttgart, West Germany, didn ' t really expect to attend an Oktoberfest during his first stay in the United States. “I personally enjoyed Okto- berfest more because it was much smaller, and I met a lot of friends. It was more personal, Oktoberfest in Germany is too commercialized . I was really astonished when I first heard about it, but after a while I knew why they had an Oktoberfest here. Here nearly everybody has a German background. Personally, I found it kind of interesting, how much they appreciate their German heritage here, when they hardly know Germany of today. Since these people have left Germany, it has gone through a lot of changes. The costumes, for example, you can only find in remote parts of Bavaria. Overall, I really enjoyed Oktoberfest. I worked at the International Student Union booth and had a lot of fun selling eggrolls. I met many people.

A heavy downpour since the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 9, caused the parade to be cancelled, for the first time in recent history. At 8:30 that morning, the parade was called off. " I thought it was the only thing that could have been done, " Edie Gould, parade committee president, said. " There was just the intensity of the rain, and a lot of the floats were ruined. " The general reaction was disappointment, Jim Nugent, parade committee sponsor said. " How can you compare it to - something that has only one function a year and not being able to hold it - it ' s devastating, " Nugent said. “I think it had to be a big blow to the morale of everybody who worked so hard, and banded together, " Nugent said, " A good six months worth of work was ruined, " Gould said. " There ' s lots of disappointment. " As president of the committee, Gould said she " started work in February, doing little preliminary stuff beforehand. " " The real work didn ' t start ' till after April, but once the school year began, I didn ' t put it down, ever, " Gould said. (LEFT) STRIKE UP THE RAINCOATS -Band members bundle up in rain coats to protect themselves against the rain and cold wind. (Photo by Robert Bunting) Although the parade was cancelled, the floats were judged earlier in the morning. The wet Kansas weather caused some considerations for changes in the future. One of these changes involves crowning the queen at the Oktoberfest celebration, having her reign over the parade, then be robed at halftime of the football game. Another plan is for the floats to be judged the night before, in buildings where the floats are housed. At halftime of the game against Wayne State, the grand marshall of the 1985 parade was crowned queen of the 1986 Homecoming. Amy Rodriguez, Elkhart junior, was crowned queen in front of a sparse crowd.

Grace Slick and crew are a part of " musical history, " a fact that sets them apart from many of the bands appearing in recent years. tcaship emerged from a gray city sky- line set to brighten the stage of Gross Memorial Coliseum, About 4,000 Starship Ians were " Knee Deep in the Hoopla " of a belated homecoming concert by the legendary San Francisco band on Saturday, Oct. 25. The band played approximately an hour ' s worth of its recent songs from their platinum “Hoopla " album, plus older songs from the band’s previous incarnations as the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. " I thought it was neat to see Grace Slick (Starship singer), and I thought it was a very good show, " I.B. Dent, director of student activities said. " They also had a very good light show. " Dent said that because of the many lights, the power consump- tion for the concert was one of the greatest ever at GMC, The lights and the stage set were so extensive, Dent said, that three tractor-trailers were filled with equipment for the concert. Dent said what set the Starship Concert apart from others at the university is " musical history. " " Over the last 10 years, you look at tire list of who ' s been here and say ' Which of these will make musical history? ' " Dent said, " Just because it ' s a name now doesn’t mean it ' s going to make musical history.

The band was called back for an encore and sang " Jane ’ (Photo by Robert Bunting) Airplane, is r and has been a name, and they’ve already made musical history, ' 1 Dent said. This " musical history " is what brought an older crowd to the Starship concert. " We didn ' t have the high school crowd this time, " Dent said. “They were at least college age and older. " Two changes were made in the operation of the concert itself. One change in the concert this year was the moving of the concert date. The fall concert, traditionally saved for home- coming weeken d, was moved back two weeks in order to get the bigger name band; Starship. Another change was to combine the positions of security and usher. A record number of 63 students served in the dual capacity of the security usher position. Security and ushers also put in a greater effort to keep the audience in the area of its scats. Dent said this eliminated anyone from " rushing the stage. " " This way, you get the seat you ' re supposed to have, " Dent said. " It ' s a better system than in the past. " The opening act for Starship was Alcatrazz. who were on tour promoting their fourth album, " Dangerous Games.” Alcatrazz Is a five-member band that has been together for about four years arid has released four albums, the second of which was recorded live. Alcatrazz finished its set with two songs from lire band Rainbow. " Alcatrazz is a talented band, but they just didn ' t seem to have the relationship with the crowd that Starship had, " Wanda KNEE DEEP -Craig Chaquito, lead guitarist, fascinates the crowd with his energetic performance of " Knee Deep in the Hoopla ' More than 4,000 fans attended the concert (Photo by Robert Bunting) Cameron, MUAB concert committee member, said in an interview with The University Leader. Starship was first formed in the mid- ' 60s. At that time, the band was called The Jefferson Airplane. The Jefferson Airplane was the first band from the infamous Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco to sign a recording contract with a major record label. Slick joined the band in 1966. She was to become the band ' s most faithful member. The Jefferson Airplane saw several membership changes. Finally, in 1974, Jefferson Starship was officially formed. Members were Paul Kantner, Slick, John Barbata, Papa John Creach, David Freiberg, Peter Kaukonen and Craig Chaquico. The same year Kaukonen left and was replaced by Pete Sears, current bass player for the band. After several changes in membership, including Slick ' s leaving and return, Jefferson Starship became Starship in March of 1985. All the changes in membership apparently did not affect Star- ship’s development cord success. The band’s first album, " Dragon- fly, " was certified gold in February of 1975. Their second album, " Red Octopus, " topped the charts in September of 1975 and was certified platinum the same year. Two more gold albums followed while Slick was in the band. Most recently, " Knee Deep in the Hoopla, " released in September of 1985, was certified platinum. by David Burke Starshio X Local Economy Depressed are not only the former employees of Baxter Travenol Laboratories Inc. or the Hays State Bank; the whole area economy is still suffering from the closing of Travenol.

Rumors about stores and restaurants closing down exaggerated, but indicated the seriousness of the situation. (Photo by Robert Bunting) crys is hurting. A change of the de- pressed local eco- nomy does not seem to be in sight. But economic development leaders and the local community remain optimistic despite the tight economy of the past couple of years. Direct and indirect factors deter- mine what happens to a com- munity when a major employer closes its doors. The closing of the Baxter Travenol Laboratories Inc. in December of 1935 resulted in the layoff of more than 650 people in the I lays area. Since the closing of the Travenol plant iii December, the unemploy- ment rate in Ellis County had gone from 7.8 percent in January 1986 to its highest point of 9.9 percent in March 1986. In October 1984, a month before Trcrvenol ' s announ- cement, Ellis County ' s unem- ployment rate was 4.1 percent. The closing of the Travenol plant affected the community as a whole including some university students. Sylvia Kinderknecht, Ellis sophomore, worked at Travenol full-time and went to school part-time. Travenol paid for six of her credit hours. " After Travenol closed, I got some aid from the state for VICTIM -When the Hays State Bank closed in December, it was the second Hays bank to close in at semester (Photo by Robert Bunting) HAYS WANTS LEDERLE -Approximately 3,000 people are posing for a community portrait to show Lederle Laboratories, New Jersey, how much Hays want them to come to the area. (Photo by Robert Bunting) schooling but that didn ' t last too long, so I got my job on campus at Forsyth Library. " Kinderknecht said. " Right now I ' m barely hanging in there, and I don’t know what’s going to happen with all tire budget cuts and work-study hours being cut at the university. " A community economic development specialist for the Kansas State University Extension Service has worked for the past two years with local community leaders in determining what impact the closing of the Travenol plant had and will have on Hays. David Darling ' s most recent studies, using data up to the end of 1985, estimate that the closing of Travenol would take about $20 million out of the Flays economy each year . Community leaders have worked since the announcement to find another company to fill the building and to replace tire jobs lost with the Travenol closing. Dick Compton of Midwest Energy in Hays, said he believes the optimism of the community remains high. Compton has led the search for a new tenant for tire Travenol building since January 1985, " Eventually, yes, we will get the building filled, " Compton said. " It is just a matter of finding a company that can use a building of that size and with those specifications. " A variety of recruitment tools and techniques have been tried in the attempt to lure new businesses to Hays. Thousands of packets of infor- mation about Travenol and Hays have been mailed to prospective companies . Besides mailings, numerous tele- phone calls have been made and advertisements havedoecn placed in business publications. The closing announcement by Travenol has generated a large amount of support for local economic development, Compton said. This support was at its best in October when between 2,000 and 3,000 people posed on Main Street for a community portrait in an attempt to lure Lederle Labo- ratories to Hays. Lederle is a New Jersey -based pharmaceutical company which, has shown some interest in the vacant Travenol facility. « Compton said he feels comfort- able with the current level of community support both in the governmental and private sectors . " Now it is just a matter of contin- uing the recruitment process and continuing our efforts, " he said. by Janet Schaller Local Economy SOCIAL COMMENT -The cast of " Working " gave a realistic, believable performance of the musical that stresses the individual ' s value, (Photo by Steve Larson) W orking. A word calling for negative associations? Not so for the cast and audience of the first fall theater performance. For them, " Working " meant an evening of high-quality enter- tainment. Under the direction of Stephen Shapiro the musical based on the book by Studs Terkel came across as a production the audience could easily relate to, " The audience reception was about what we expected. People related to different characters, the steelworker, the teacher, the house- wife etc, " Shapiro said. For the actors " Working " was a chance to get acting experience in small roles. Dramatic involvement is always a source of both learning experience for the cast and entertainment for the audience. Two fall productions offered a well-balanced variety in content, first featuring a musical commenting on society, then old-time favorite comedy. " I meant to do something with opportunity for lots of new actors. There were many small roles that wouldn ' t intimidate new persons, " Shapiro said. The text is taken from non-fiction individuals. " I wanted to do a play with some substance, rather than some frivolous escapist entertainment. The play centers on the value of any individual, on the fact that regard- less of the perception of the job, every job has tho potential to bring out the best in an individual, " Shapiro said, According to Shapiro, Bruce Bardwell, Hays graduate student, was the outstanding actor because of his ability to " deliver a credible performance, " his energy, and his singing ability. Bardwell portrayed Mike, the steelworker, ctnd Dave, the trucker. The second fall production was " Play It Again, Sam, " directed by Lloyd Frerer. The comedy about the neurotic Alan Felix , who dreams about taking on Humphrey Bogart ' s personality, starred Dennis Grilliot, Castle ton senior, as Alan. Grilliot enjoyed his role, and the audience seemed to enjoy Grilliot. “He (Alan) is a nerd. I loved playing him because I got real nerdy, and people laughed. I was very pleased with the whole production, and the audience seemed to love it, " Grilliot said. The elaborate set and the deft handling of the lighting under the supervision of Steve Larson, tech- nical director, enhanced the entire production. by Bettina Heinz Fall Theater V •if’ „ v , % 4 I (ABOVE) ACTING IT OUT -The musical " working " seemed a good selesction for the first production of the year, because the large cast offers acting opportunities for many anctors in not too demanding roles.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) ■ t was competition. It was entertain- ment. It was Greek activity at its best. Greek Week took a different twist tins year when it took place during the fall semester rather than in the spring semester as it had been tradition. " The big reason we had Greek Week in the fall this year was to help promote spring rush, " David Herl. Interfratemity Council pres- ident, said, " I really think it worked better because there are fewer conflicts in the fall semester and more people could participate than in the past. " Greek Week began Monday, Oct. 20. with the Greek Sing, Each of the Greek chapters sang one serious song and one humorous song about their chapter, as well as one popular song of their choice. Alpha Gamma Delta sorority took first place in the Greek Sing with Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and Delta Zeta sorority takina second and third places respectively. Greek Week continued on Tues- day with Faculty Appreciation Day. A breakfast sponsored by the fraternities and sororities was given for faculty members in the Memorial Union cafeteria. Each chapter also invited different faculty members to attend a semi- formal dinner at their chapter house . Wednesday was highlighted with the Greek Games taking place at the practice field next to Lewis Field Stadium. Four competitive games and two fun games were played in the afternoon. The four competitive games in- cluded three-legged race, egg toss, chariot races and obstacle course. The two fun games played were tug-of-war and egghead. To play the egghead game, a sorority member sits on the shoulders of a fraternity member. The guy has a knee-high pantyhose on his head with an egg inside. The girl is to defend the egg on her partner ' s head while trying to break the egg on other players ' heads. The winners of the egghead were the two left with their egg unbroken. " I thought the egghead was the best and most fun game because it was so hilarious to watch, " Ileidi BREAKDOWN -Tom Zerr, Grinnell senior, changes a tire on the Delta Sigma Phi car, (Photo by Robert Bunting) Dizmang, Delta Zeta sorority member, said. The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity took first place overall in the games with a total of 40 points, Delta Sigma Phi fraternity took second with 26 points and Sigma Chi fraternity finished third with 17 points. Despite the bad weather the day of the games, it was one of the most successful days of the week , I lerl said, " I felt the Greek Games were the most enjoyable part of Greek Week, " Dawn Vopat, Wilson junior and member of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority, said. " Getting together with all the different houses allows everyone to meet new people and it ' s good Greek relations. " A potluck dinner took place Thursday at the Knights of Colum- bus ITall, Several awards were pre- sented at tliis time. Some of the awards presented were the Active Scholarship Trophy that went to the Sigma Chi fraternity. Herl said this award is based on last spring ' s cumulative grade point average of each house. On Friday, all the sororities and fraternities met at the Brass Rail for a Friday After Class get- together. Greek Week was concluded on Saturday with a Greek tailgate party at the Swinging Bridge Park prior to the university football game. " The main goal of Greek Week is to get all the fraternity and sorority members together to interact and become more aware of each other, " Ilorl said. Greek Week REPTILE WORLD -Reptiles in the cafeteria of the Student Center attracted many over lunch break. {Photo by Amy Heier) Attractive selections from theater, music and enter- tainment offered a variety of events to the students.

Some shuddered at the thought, but then the Reptile World attracted a large crowd. " Reptile World was a noon- cafeteria event, We try to have one once a semester, ’’ Matt Keller, MUAB president, said. Among the live reptiles featured in the Reptile World presentation were members of the crocodilian family, constrictors, pit vipers, lizards, a tortoise and a cobra. Aside from discussion on the specific animals presented, Reptile World highlighted aspects and problems of reptilian existance in the world of today. The Gallery series featured Kim and Reggie Harris on Nov. 18 and 19. The duo sang traditional songs and spirituals. " Kim and Reggie Harris was a great show. They are two fine artists, 1 ' Jim Costigan, MUAB music chairman, said. Still, MUAB faced some problems with the Harris performance. " The first show we had to cancel beause of lack of attendance. The second time, 40 people showed up. That night, Reggie Harris got two standing ovations, " Costigan said. The first After-Dinner-Theater production of the year was " The Owl and the Pussy Cat , " followed by " Of All The Nerve, " featuring VERSATILITY -Kim and Reggie Harris perform traditional songs and spirituals on Nov. 18.

The first concert of the year was by Dave Wopat. Wopat won the audience through his vocal and guitar abilities. " Dave Wopat is a unique talent who creates a genuinely warm rapport with his audience while overwhelming them with his stunning vocal and guitar abilities, " the MUAB program said. Another high-quality musician brought to campus was Michael Johnson. Johnson is an entertainer in the classic style. He is an expert at guitar-playing and displays off-the-wall humor and a large repertoire. He performed in September, presenting songs like, " This Night Won’t Last Forever, " " Almost Like Being In Love, " and " Gotta Learn To Live Without You. " The remainder of the year students could observe his songs climbing up the charts . First speaker of the year in the Guest Speaker series was Morton Kondracke with his lecture “Can America Get By Without Reagan? 1 The Kondracke lecture was co- sponsored by the Society for Collegiate Journalists. When talking about the various candidates for presidency and Reagan successors in general, Kondracke said Robert Dole, senate minority leader, had a very good c hance of becoming the main Republican candidate. by Bettina Heinz SUNDOWNER -Dave Wopat creates a genuinly warm rapport with his audience during his Sept. 14 concert.

He has shaped the curriculum and built the department, (Photo by Photo Lab) COMMUNICATOR -Jack Heather said the area of radio, TV and film not only serves the students, but also the community and broadcasting Industry. (Photo by Amv Heier) Heather Hail Dedicated is a more than suitable adjective for Jack Heather. Over a long period of years, he developed the radio and TV broadcasting department, so that when the building was officially dedicated in October, " Heather Hall " was already a familiar term. umwhen one thinks of VV radio and TV at the university, one thinks of Jack Heather. Heather, director of radio TV and film, made the department what it is today. On Saturday, Oct. 11, he was recognized for 36 years of service to the university. To honor Heather, the building which houses the radio and TV broadcasting department, was dedicated to him. However, before the dedication it was often called " Heather Hall " by many of the students and faculty. Heather began his announcing career with the armed forces in 1945. In January of 1946, Heather entered the University of Texas at EL Paso, where he got his degree in broadcasting and business. Heather completed his master ' s degree at the University of Denver in 1950. Immediately hired by the university, he came to Hays and began to develop the young and inexperienced radio curriculum and program. Since 1950, under Heather ' s direction, the area has broadened to include the teaching of tele- vision broadcasting and program- ming, and area TV stations were utilized by students. Closed circuit TV programming was initiated, and more and better equipment was added. " We don ' t often get to dedicate a building to someone who is still GUEST SPEAKER -Gov. John Carlin attendee! Heather Hall dedication as guest speaker. {Photo by Amy Heier) alive and kicking. Congratulations on a job well done. Thanks to you our radio TV is with the best in the area, " Gerald Tomanek, university president, said. Guest speakers at the dedication included Gov. John Carlin; Sen, Joseph Nor veil; Stanley Koplik, executive director of Kansas Board of Regents; and Robert E. Schmidt, vice president and general manager of KAYS, Inc, Tomanek, who paid a tribute to Heather, said the dedication of Heather Hall was a very important moment in the university ' s illustratious history. James Murphy, vice president for academic affairs, unveiled a portrait of Heather. The portrait was done by Leon and Ann Staab of Pioneer Photography, Hays, and now hangs in Heatherdlall. Schmidt said it was quite fitting for the broadcasting building to be named Heather Hall. " After all, the students carry the mark of Jack Heather. The building should too, " Schmidt said. Heather said he thought the area of radio, TV and film served faculty and students, the community of Hays and the broad- casting industry, " But more importantly, it serves students of broadcasting with a practical background in small and medium market station- operation and a sense of professionalism through actually performing the many jobs found in broadcasting, " Heather said.

(Photo by Don King) Campaign coordinators were not the only people involved in the elections. While western Kansas was definitely Hayden territory from the very beginning on. Docking supporters still tried to win the voters ' ballots. The " sin " amendments were easily approved of. B y a difference of nearly 25,000 votes Kansas voters pro- ved they " liked Mike. " Not only did they elect Speaker of the House Mike Hayden as governor, Kansas voters also approved constitutional amend- ments allowing liquor-by-the- drink, pari-mutuel wagering and a state-run lottery. Each amendment won easily. Hayden, who earned his master ' s degree in biology from the university, defeated Lt. Gov. Tom Docking by a 51 percent to 49 percent vote. Hayden and Docking each made several campaign stops in Hays, including a debate on the morning of Homecoming, Oct, 11, Even with the pouring rain on that Saturday, a crowd of approximately 300 gathered at the Holiday Inn, Highway 183, for the Eggs and Issues forum. Both candidates were allowed a three-minute opening statement and two minutes to answer questions presented by a panel. The four -man panel consisted of Jack Barbour, assistant professor of political science; Greg Crawford, KAYS radio-television news director; Larry Gould, associate professor of political science; and Kent Steward, " The Hays Daily News " managing editor . Several questions focused on Hays and the university. Gould asked a question concerning disinvestment in Kansas, and whether the candidates would allocate no less than 20 percent of the state budget to higher education, if elected. Bill Jellison, vice president for student affairs, and Melly Schmidt, former mayor of Hays, had been named as campaign coordinators in Ellis County for Docking, " Campaigning is one of the basic ingredients used to continue our government, " Jellison said. " Our political system determines what does and what doesn ' t happen. " Jellison stressed that it was one of his goals to bring new, especially young people into the campaign. Docking campaign headquarters were opened on South Main Street, next door to “The Ellis County Star. " Others winning the Nov. 4 election were Attorney General Bob Stephan, State Treasurer Joan Finney, Insurance Commissioner Fletcher Bell, all of whom were re- elected. and Bill Graves was elected as the new secretary of state. Incumbents Pat Roberts, Jim Slattery, Jan Meyers, Dan Glickman and Bob Whittaker all won re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives. U.S. Senator Bob Dole, who grew up 30 miles from Hays in Russell, easily won re-election, his fourth. He did not, however, retain his position as Senate Majority Leader, because the Democrats gained control of the senate with the elections. The liquor-by- the -drink amend- ment, which passed by a 60 percent to 40 percent margin, was approved overwhelmingly in Ellis County. The last time Kansans had voted on liquor-by-the-drink had been in 1970. Only 12 counties passed the proposal. Gov. Mike Hayden was inaugurated in a ceremony in Topeka in January. " If you dream big enough and work hard enough, there ' s nothing you can ' t do. This is a dream (wife) Patti and I had a long time ago: A dream that a farm family from western Kansas could become the first family in Kansas, " Hayden said to a group of supporters in Wichita election night.

LIVING LEGEND -The concert of the Legends of Jazz drew a large student crowd, making the event one of the year ' s favorites. (Photo by Robert Bunting) L egendary jazz at its best. The Dec. 1 pre- sentation of “1,000 Years of Jazz " at Old Hays High School was a winner for the Encore series. The program not only drew a large crowd of 250 people, it also drew the highest percentage of students in the audience all year. " I tirink it ' s great to see that many students here, " I. B. Dent, special events committee administrator, said. The event started out with The Legends of Jazz under the direction of Barry Martyn. The Legends of Jazz actually consists of six legendary New Orleans musicians. Floyd Turnham, tenor sax and clarinet, tor example, was bom in 1909. He has toured with the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Joe Liggins and His Honey Drippers and many more. He appeared with T-Bone Walker. Ella Fitzgerald and Maxine Sullivan and composed the song " Georgia Meet. " The Legends of Jazz tuned the audience into authentic jazz, but it was with the appearance of Deborah Woodson, vocalist, that the audience started whistling, tapping and swinging.

Therefore, the program offered more to the audience than just a night of quality entertainment, it offered a chance to witness jazz history - live. by Bettina Heinz Culinary treats and musical selections made the Madrigal Dinner a true feast, leaving the guests with that feeling of complete satisfaction only a good meal and a nice environment can create. Flickering lights and decorations perfected the setting. 16TH CENTURY STYLE -The Madrigal Singers sing " Once in Royal David ' s City " by William Byrd at the Madrigal Dinner. (Photo by Robert Bunting) or it is convenient that a supper be made in dewe time, not to erly nor to late; in convenable place, . large, plesant, and siker. So reads the program of the Old English Madrigal Dinner, The dinner, presented by the Memorial Union Madrigal Committee, live d up to the quoted expectations. The dinner took place on Dec. 5 and 6 in Memorial Union. It was not completely sold out, but that did not surprise the committee. " We sold about 87 percent. We sold out in the early ' 80s, but the past three years, we haven’t. It’s part of the economy, " Steve Wood, Memorial Union director, said. For two nights, the union turned into a 16th Gentury castle. The guests were greeted with a Christmas wassail cup by the Lord and Lady of the Manor. The Madrigal Singers then wel- comed the guests and led them up the stairs, The second floor of the Union had gone through a fascinating change. Candles in paper sacks provided a soft, dampened lighting. The walls were decorated in 16th Century style. The ballroom was equally unrecognizable. Table deco- rations, flickering lights and servants moving at ease in their costumes perfected the setting. " My favorite part of the whole dinner is just before the people come into the room, when we light all the candles. It loses its beauty when the people sit down, unfold the napkins and so on, " Wood said. The menu included a fruit and cheese board, Cheddar soup, carved round of beefe. Yorkshire pudding with hearty beefe gravy, herbed stuffed chicken breast, parsleyed rice, green beans with bacon, and Christmas torte. An oven-fresh loaf of bread was served at the side. " We didn ' t change anything from last year ' s menu, I think it was very good. Everyone was pleased. It is hard to feed 500 people and please everyone, " Wood said. After the main course, the Madrigal Singers and the Recorder Ensemble performed. The madrigal was brought to England from Italy in the 16th Century. It was at first an informal type of private entertainment at the castle and country homes of the landed gentry. The singing of madrigals was naturally popular during the 12 days of the Christmas season. Students participating in the dinner as musicians, dancers, or servants enjoyed the opportunity to live in the 16 th Century for a day, " I served food on the plates. I got involved through Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, and I had fun. It was better than I had it expected to be. I ' m planning to do it again. I really enjoyed it. We- had a lot of fun back there in the kitchen. Some of the food was cold by the time we got it, but it was pretty good, " Michelle Ratzloff, Buhler freshman, said. By the time the Lord of the Manor bid farewell to his guests, those seemed to be very relaxed and a little reluctant to leave the en- chanting atmosphere, knowing that Monday, the ballroom would bear its plain looks again.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) Madrigal Madrigal Ghostly apparitions dominated the stage when music majors presented the opera The Medium. The Hays audience, which does not often have the chance to see an opera, seemed to appreciate the presentation r he audience was ready for the rare opportunity to see an opera performed in Hays. The Medium, a dramatic opera by Gian Carlo Menotti, opened Jan. 22 at Felten-Start Theater. When the opera first opened on Broadway 40 years ago, the well- defined line between Broadway musical and opera had been crossed, The Medium then turned out to be a success and competed favorably with the current musical comedy for box office receipts. Director Donald Stout was a member of the opera’s cast when he was a student at the University of Illinois in 1949. Though Menotti ' s opera is quite young compared with most of the traditional operatic repertoire, it has found a secure place in the performance programs of many colleges and universities, Stout said. The Medium was previously performed at Fort Hays State in the mid- ' 50s. The cast included the father of Stephanie Janzen, a member of the current cast. " We ' re into the second generation of The Medium at Fort Hays State, " Stout said. Since he knew about The Medium. Stout said it affected his choice. A change in music department personnel was also a reason for the selection.

" I came back (from a sabbatical to Europe) and found a lot of the men were gone. I couldn ' t do what I had in mind, so I started looking for something else. " And here it was, right under my nose, " Stout said. Stout said The Medium was unique in the fact that there were only two men in the cast. " So many operas take four to five baritones, and two to three tenors, " Stout said. Stout said that The Medium was considered a " chamber opera.” There are lew singers, with only six in the cast, and there is only one player to a part in the orchestra, including a piano duet. " It ' s designed for a small audience, like we have in Felten- Start, " Stout said. " The concept of chamber opera is so intimate and for the audience to be fairly close to the performers. " Stout said he liked the opera because of its good drama and PSYCHIC -Amy Marshall, Groens- bu ig senior, and Stephanie Janzen, Scott City senior, reveal psychic abilities. {Photo by Robert Bunting) audience appeal. " Traditionally, audiences like the show. It keeps them paying attention, " Stout said, " People in western Kansas are not exposed to many operas, This is one they ' ll enjoy, and make them want to come back, " Stout said. He said in previous years lighter, more comical operas were performed. " This is the first year of a more dramatic story for several years, " Stout said. " Audiences can appreciate either one. " " If a person has not seen an opera, this is one that has a lot of appeal to it. You can follow the story, and the music ties in with the drama, " Stout said.

The group also offered a workshop, (Photo by Robert Bunting) Tuneful presentations by the Harvey Pittei Saxophone Quartet brought true musician- ship to Hays. The quartet surprised through the versatile adaption of the saxophone to a wide range of music and shared its knowledge with students in a workshop. F amous names such as Mozart and Bach almost instantly bring to mind beautiful symphonies playing some of the most ad- mired classical music of all time. But it ' s not often that those same names are associated with the saxophone, the member of the woodwind family often referred to as the " boogie-woogie " instrument. Thanks to the Encore series, however, students at the university had a first-hand opportunity to hear the saxophone used in a variety of music. The event, a concert maturing the Harvey Pittei Saxophone Quartet, occurred on Jan. 29 at old Hays High Auditorium. Pittei, who has long been known as America ' s foremost classical saxophonist, brought with him a unique combination of performers for the concert, which was preceded by a workshop the previous evening. The concert, which included the works of Bach and Mozart in addition to more modem renditions from joplin, vaudeville, swing and jazz, received extremely high ratings from nearly all in attendance. " The concert was just incredible, " Rachelle Gathman, Lamed junior, said. " They (the quartet) were very good, and they had a wide variety of music so it appealed to EXPERIENCED -Janies Rotter, who has been working with Harvey Pittei for 15 years, displays a versatile use of the saxophone. (Photo by Robert Bunting) everybody. I would think that the concert even appealed to the person who doesn ' t know that much about music. " And that was an element of Pittel ' s style that surprised Gathman. " We thought they would be very professional, " Gathman said, " but we didn ' t know they would have so much showmanship. They had real good stage presence, and they really kept you waiting for the next piece.” Martin Shapiro, professor of music, attended not only the concert but the workshop the night before, and he also had nothing but praise for the work of the quartet, which consisted of Pittei, James Rotter, Debra McKim and Allen Won, " They brought professional musicianship to Hays, " Shapiro said, " They did ragtime, vaudeville and even classical pieces that go back before the saxophone. They just did a total range of music, " I would say that the concert they did was, if not the best concert I ' ve ever seen, certainly one of the best. It was really just having a lot of fun, from the silliest music to the most demanding, and they did it all as if it was just like breathing, " Shapiro said. by Eric Jontra SAX EXPERT -Harvey Pittei and his quartet amazed the audience by playing a wide variety of music including vaudeville, swing, jazz and classics.

Student? from Thomas Prep-Marian High School c nd the university gave alumnus Seib a warm welcome when he was finally released. F or the Seib family, a week of fear, hope and prayer started with a phonecaU on Saturday night, Jan. 31. Dick and Annette Seib, 1910 Main, had just been informed that their son Jerry, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, had been detained in Tehran, Iran, Seib was one of 57 reporters invited into Iran to cover Iran’s war with Iraq and to attend a news conference. Seib ' s detention seemed un- motivated and surprised Seib as much as the outside world, he said. Five days later, Seib was released. The news that he was in safety in Zurich, Switzerland, quickly reached Hays, Severed groups prepared for a homecoming to welcome Seib back. On Friday, Feb. 13, Seib spoke to his alma mater at Thomas More Prep-Marian High School Friday morning. On Saturday, Feb. 1 4, Seib thanked the community at the official Hays’ welcome reception for Hays at TMP-Marian. At a press conference prior to the reception, Seib expanded one more time on his detention before going back to a regular work schedule. Seib pulled out his reporter ' s notebook and said it was time for him " to get out of the news” and return to " reporting the news instead. " " It ' s a lot of fun, It is a pleasure to have been able to get back to Hays so soon, It’s wonderful to see my family. It has also been a great relief, taking the pressure off and relax, " Seib said. Seib stressed his desire to " fade into the footnotes " and explained why it was so important to him and The Journal not to sensationalize his detention. " One of the reasons we tried not to sensationalize it was that we didn ' t want it to affect the ability of people to go to Iran. I don ' t think it should, " Seib said. " It would be really tragic if it would make people reluctant to go into these countries, " Seib said, Seib said he had called the whole situation a " nasty incident " before, and he wanted it to remain that. The attention his detention received in his hometown surprised Seib. " I appreciate all the attention. I had no idea. Frankly, I was surprised. I really didn ' t have any grasp how an issue it was here. It was a gratifying in many ways, " Seib said. “It ' s tough to imagine my parents wouldn ' t have gotten the support they have gotten, " Seib said, That support, especially from the students at TMP-Marian, lead to his decision to speak to the students there on Friday before his official reception Saturday. " It was my choice. I told my parents I wanted to talk to the TMP-Marian students first. They were just wonderful. I just wanted to show up and thank them,” Seib said, Seib said he hopes that his quick release could set a precedent. " 1 hope it could be a precedent. I hope it is. There was a Canadian in Tehran who was released about the same time I was. Maybe in the long run, maybe there is a shift. I hope that’s the case, " Seib said. " How it ended up to last only four RELIEF -Gerald Seib ' s wife, Barbara Rosewicz, shows a weary smile at the Hays press conference, Seib ' s detention had been a stresslul time for her, (Photo by Brad Norton) or five days will remain one of the mysteries in my life, " Seib said.

" He was an outstanding student, just head and shoulders above his associates in journalism, " Rogers said. Rogers ' attention was first drawn to Seib when she was in charge of the Kansas Scholastic Press Association contest. At the time, Seib was a student at TMP-Marian. He edited the paper there for two years. " In those days the KSPA contest was concluded with an awards ceremony. And he just won everything he had entered, " Rogers said. " I wanted him to come to FHSU. I observed him while he was here, but we all knew that he needed mo re specific journalism classes than we could offer at the time, " Rogers said, Rogers said it therefore didn ' t come as a surprise when Seib transferred to the University of Kansas. " They welcomed him. It was like they said ’Send us more Jerry Seib ' s.’ He ' s great, ' " Rogers said. Seib said when he was working for the University Leader as editor of the editorial page, he didn ' t have any idea that he was going to work as a Middle East reporter. ’it was just one of the things that happen. At the time, I was only looking at going to Washington, D.C., 1 ’ Seib said. |T by Bettina Heinz Seib SERENADE -Mick Kelly, played by Elena Blue, is serenaded by The Harmonica Man, played by Edward Porter in Carson Me Cullers ' celebrated tale of love, Th e Heart is a Lonely Hunter in the March 9 production at Felten Start Theater, (Photo by David Hays) COMMUNICATION -Elena Blue as Mick Kelly and Cathleen Riddley as Portia Copeland communicate in special ways.

Yet elo- quent it was as company members spoke, read and signed lines, and, more than that, seemed to sculpture words in the air through their body language, he audience saw a special transfor- mation - it watched the actors ' whole bodies become words, thoughts, emotions. The Special Events committee that contracted The National Theatre of the Deaf for the Encore Series had drawn a winner again. The Felten Start Theater was sold out for the March 9 performance. The production of The Heart is a ' lonely Hunfer, Carson McCullers first play, was appealing in two ways. First of all. The National Theatre of the Deaf is the most highly regarded ensemble of deaf and hearing actors in America. Second, the selection of the play appealed to the audience. In The Heart is a lonely Hunter, McCullers reveals the desperate need human beings have for mutual under- standing and love, as well as their consistent failure to satisfy this need. The action of the play soon had the audience involved in the action, and they followed the play rather than paying attention to the fact that some of the players we re deaf. " The audience got more comfortable as the play went on, " I.B. Dent, director of the Special Events committee, said. As the ensemble consists of both deaf and hearing players, the hearing players speak their own lines, while a speaker recites the lines of the deaf players.

Deaf and hearing impaired people from all of western Kansas had driven up to Hays for the performance . Some of them drove as far as two or three hours to see the play. The National Theatre of the Deaf has created a visual language that is accurately described as being to normal sign language what song is to street speech, Throughout its 22- year history, the company has given almost 4,000 performances in 26 countries and is the only pro- fessional theater company to have performed in all 50 states. In 1986, the company became the first Western theater to tour The People ' s Republic of China. A reception at Dent ' s house followed the play. As it was planned to give members of the deaf community a chance to meet the actors, the invitation was signed from the stage to the entire audience. “I thought it was great. Nobody who didn ' t know sign language knew what message we signed. We invited all deaf or hearing impaired and even signed instructions how to get to my house, " Dent said. " We had an extremely difficult time to get them to talk to the actors. These actors are the biggest in their business. These people have heard about them all th eir lives; they just stood back and looked at them, almost as if they were afraid to talk to them, " Dent said. by Bettina Heinz TALL TALES -Adrian Blue as John Singer watches as young Mick Kelly, played by Elena Blue, tells him one of the tall tales for which the 13-year old is famous In McCullers tale set In the 1930s South. {Photo by A.

If the weather had shown more insight, the Special Olympics might have turned out to be the most successful ever. But nobody counted on a repetition of the late winter storms. COMPETITION -Joey Desch, member of the Associated Retarded Citizens Central Plains, tries to defend the ball against a member of the McPherson 1 Bull dogs, (Photo by Robert Bunting) After all, it was already late March. When a severe winterstorm warning, which was later changed to a blizzard warning for the Hays area, was issued on Friday night, March 27, the coaches started to express concern. At that time, the highlight of the Special Olympics, the dance, was taking place. For the athletes, the dance is the one event of the year they are looking forward to. Bill Moyer, co-chairman of the Special Olympics committee, said it was very hard for him to end the dance at 9 p.m,, because he knew how much the participants enjoyed it. " Their biggest disappointment was Friday night when I had to get up there and shut the dance down. The tournament is important, and that is what this is all about. But I have to be honest with you; the dance is their No. 1 thing, " Moyer said. Moyer said what was the biggest disappointment for him was that the group from Lake Mary had to leave before the banquet. " They didn ' t get to attend the banquet. Their coach was worried about not getting back, and so he decided that it was safer to leave right away, " Moyer said, The fear that the teams would not be able to make it back seemed more and more justified as the temperature started dropping, and the warnings were reinforced. " We decided to cancel the tournament and told everyone they should get ready to leave unless they wanted to get stranded in Hays for a couple of extra days, " Moyer said. Half of the teams followed Moyer ' s advice and left town Friday night before the major storm hit. But, that still left more than 600 people stranded and contingency plans had to be mcde. What could have been a potential disaster for the athletes turned out to be a challenge for the community and the coaches, " Many of the restaurants and hotels in the city went above and beyond the call of duty to help our Special Olympians and other stranded people, " Moyer said. Approximately 40 trophies and awards were not presented during the tournament because of the cancellation of Saturday ' s activities. by Bettina Heinz OFFENSE -Mike Boese, Hays, gets ready to shoot the ball, while Jay Holfman, Hays, looks at a member ol the Great Bend team who prepares to block the shot at the Kansas Special Olympics in March at Gross Memorial Coliseum, (Photo by Robert Bunting) Special Olympics BLOCKED OUT -Matt Ruder tries to break- up a six-foot snow drift blocking his parent ' s driveway, (Photo by Charlie Riedel Hays Daily News) Blizzards According to the calendar, it was the first week of spring. But a look outside soon convinced everybody that winter was not ready yet to retreat. The continuous snowfall brought campus life to a stillstand for several days. now was just every- where, it seemed, when two blizzards hit Hays in late March. " Snow prolongs spring break fun, " the headline in the weather story in The University Leader said. Blizzard parties took place all over the community, as classes were called off because of the snow. Almost a foot of snow in some parts of northwest Kansas and about 7 inches in the Hays area accumulated in the first full week of spring. The snow, coupled with high winds, created blizzard conditions on Monday, March 23, which downed power lines and trees throughout much of northwest Kansas. According to the Kansas Department of Transportation in Hays, all major roads in this part of the state were closed due to snow drifts. Actually, Interstate 70 remained closed for several days because some vehicles were stranded out there. But this late winter storm was not the last winter sight the com- munity was to see. The weekend of March 28 and 29 brought even more severe storms and blizzards to the area, dumping 10 inches of snow on Hays and leading to cancellation of classes for the third time in two weeks. Two cedar trees collapsed in front of Sheridan Coliseum, due to the weight of the snow. Other trees SLIDING AWAY -Kendra Maska, 12, sleds down a 15-foot drift in front of her parents ' home on the north edge of Hays.

The blizzard also caused 650 Special Olympics athletes who had come to Hays for the state tour nament to endure a marathon stay in Hays. Meanwhile, the games had been called off.

A survey conducted at the univer- sity and local high schools had shown that Survivor was the No. 1 favorite. It didn ' t surprise that the band that had a break- through with Eye of the Tiger found a warm welcome on campus. spring concert j introduced the uni- versify to the band Survivor on its first headline tour. The concert was unusually scheduled on a Monday night, April 6. The night had some effect on the size of the crowd, but in no way was the audience ' s rowdiness subdued. The crowd remained seated during the opening band, Jason and the Scorchers, a country rock band from Nashville. " I think they were maybe a little too country for the crowd that was there, " Karen Currier, Atwood freshman, said. Probably the best known song that the band did was 1 9th Nervous Breakdown, a song made popular by the Rolling Stones. " They weren ' t bad, but I knew Survivor was going to be out next, and I was really excited about seeing them, " Terri Harmon, Oberlin freshman, said. At one point in the performance, Jason Ringenberg, lead singer, ventured into the crowd and roamed freely about the audience. It was on his way back to stage that he stopped to return hassling to a trio of girls who had been jeering at the band through the entire performance. " You three have been acting like smart asses all night. You want to tell us why you hate Jason and the Scorchers so much? " Ringenberg said. None of the girls had anything to say. " Give ' em a chance to be famous, and they blow it, " Ringenberg said. Ringenberg signed off their performance with the farewell phrase, " See ya later alligator. " The headlining band Survivor took the stage and performed songs from its most recent album When Seconds Count as well as numbers from the four previous albums. The audience of more than 2000 was on its feet from the minute the lights went down, and the band appeared to the last note of the bands encore of its 1982 Grammy winning hit Eye of the Tiger. Despite the relatively small crowd, the band was pleased with the response it received. " College crowds are usually better, " Marc Durbay, drummer, said, " It was a great crowd, " Jim Peterik, keyboardist and one of the chief songwriters of the band, said. " They were probably one of the best crowds we’ve had in the past couple of weeks. " The band arrived in Hays around 3 p.m. on the day before the concert. The spare time gave the band an opportunity to see an area of the country they had never been in before. " Its kind of flat, " Durbay said. It also gave the members of the band a little leisure time in the city of Hays, Two of the band members spent the evening bowling, " I like jogging, " Peterik said. " Nothing was open so I jogged from CO-FOUNDER Jim Peterik, keyboardist, founded the band Survivor In 1978 together with Frankie Sullivan, Survivor is a Chicago band. {Photo by Robert Bunting) the hotel to the record store downtown. I saw the posters in the window. I liked it. It looked real nice. I bought about $30 worth of tapes and CDs and jogged back. " Durbay used the time to catch up on his rest. " I stayed at the hotel and slept, " Durbay said. It was the group ' s first tour as a headliner band and its first time in Hays. " This tour is a little different because this is oui first one as a headliner, but everything is going real well, " Durbay said. Survivor is a band out of Chicago that was formed in 1978 by Peterik and guitarist Frankie Sullivan. The band had its breakthrough when Sylvester Stallone asked it to do the song for his movie Rocky n. It was Eye of the Tiger, the song that won a Grammy in 1982 as well as an Academy Award nomination. In 1983, Jimi Jamison replaced David Bickler as lead vocalist and the band released its fourth album, Vital Signs, in 1984. Survivor seemed appreciative of the hospitality it received in western Kansas and on oampus. " We ' d like to play here again - maybe on our next tour, " Durbay said.

After a long-term in- volvement with the university, he is looking forward to spending more time on his favorite subject - grasslands. " little scared and apprehensive, " he entered the uni- versity in 1938, far from expecting to retire as its president one day. After 40 years of service to the university, including 10 years of presidency. President Tomanek retired May 17. Tomanek, a native of Collyer, first became involved with the university in 1938 as a student. " I was a farm boy and scared to death moving from a small farm to what was I thought a large town. At that time. Hays had a population of 5,000. I was apprehensive, being only 16 years old, " Tomanek said. Classes Tomanek taught dealt with grassland ecology and range management, a topic that is easily associated with Tomanek on campus. During his career, he was twice called to Argentina to lend his advice on grasslands, his area of expertise. He was also a consultant for a prairie grasslands special produced by CBS-TV and has received numerous awards for his conservation practices and knowledge, like the Conservation Educator of the Year Award by the Kansas Wildlife Society. Tomanek was named president in the spring of 1976. Inauguration ceremonies for Tomanek were held April 1 1 , 1976. As teaching was Tomanek ' s favorite occupation, he had doubts about the presidency, " I was very hesitant about becoming president because I enjoyed being a classroom teacher. I enjoyed working directly with young people, " Tomanek said, Nevertheless, Tomanek started out with high goals. " One of my goals was the change from a college to a uni- versity. I wanted to develop the image of Fort Hays as the university of western Kansas, that was a big goal of mine, 11 he said.

Gerald Tomanek, university president, was one of several consultants when the book was written. Phillips Petroleum Company offered publishing rights to the university first. Bob Lowen, director of university relations, said, because of their long- standing association with Tomanek. The book was written in the mid-1950s and published in 1966 in Bartlesville, Okla., by Phillips Petroleum Company. It started out as a project and was considered " an authoritative reference guide " of pasture and range plants by Phillips officials, Tom Boyd, Phillips vice president for public affairs, said, j Lowen said at the time the book was written Tomanek was a teacher, and had the reputation of being a grassland expert. Phillips asked him to aid in the consultation of writing the book, " We needed the help of an expert, " Boyd said. " With Jerry Tomanek ' s assistance, we were able to achieve that goal. " Even though Tomanek did not write the book, Lowen said, he did write the introduction, Tomanek said he was justone of the several people who helped create " Pasture and Range Plants, " One of the others who helped in the book ' s creation included F, W. Albertson, former botany department chairman. Tomanek ON THE LINE -The phone o£ -Gerald Tom a nek, university president, is usually busy.

" Another goal was to maintain and improve Fort Hays as an excel- lent university with outstanding faculty who were concerned about the success of the stu- dents, " Tomanek said. Tomanek said most of these goals have been accomplished in whole or part, " Many of these goals have been achieved through the entire university team, I ' m just glad that I happened to be president when it happened, Its just not my doing, " Tomanek said. Actually the list of accomplish- ments during his presidency is very extensive. To mention only a few, during Tomanek’s presidency the schools of nursing and business were instituted. ROTC was brought to campus, student activities were increased, and a visual arts center was established. Furthermore, under his pre- sidency, the alumni office moved to the endowment building and furthered their cooperative efforts, Also, in 1986, the number of scholarships awarded was greatly increased Tomanek gives most of the credit for his professional success to his wife, Ardis, " Without her, I couldn ' t have made it, " he said. Looking back at the university he entered long ago, Tomanek said its strengths are the quality and compassion of the faculty, the dedication of the administration and the staff and the beauty of the campus. The distance from Topeka is a little weakness, he said, " The university is in about as good a shape as it has ever been, I am concerned about the present economic conditions, though, " Tomanek said. Tomanek turned 65 on Sept. 15. The regents ' mandatory re- tirement age for university administrators is 65. He has made many plans for his retirement, " I ' m sure I will miss the excitement of the office, but I ' m looking forward to the next part of my life without a schedule book, We (he and his wife, Ardis) are going to live in Hays, " he said. His plans include lecturing on the prairie environment and writing about it. Tomanek said he would like to develop the slides he has of the prairie and its wildlife to lecture. To do this he would have to organize his 10,000 slides and prepare speech material, he said. " Mostly Ardis and I are planning to travel in a motorhome the next years, and I do plan to catch up on some fishing, " Tomanek said. by Bettina Heinz {FAR LEFT) EXPERT -In October, the university received the publishing rights of " Pasture and Range Plants " from Phillips Petroleum Company.

That is the goal Zoran Stevanov, associate professor of art, sets for his creative photography students. Stevanov said he tries to teach his students something other than telling a story. " I try to teach them to create an effect, an emotion, a feeling, Stevanov said. So then people viewing the weak can experience the same feeling or emotion. " Putting everyday objects into a different light is what Harold Riedel, Minneapolis senior, tries to do with his photography. " My stuff is everyday stuff. I like to make it look like the past, " he said. 1 like to bring the past back to life. " There are many different techniques involved in creating a piece of art with a photograph, Kent Basgall, Sharon Springs senior, said. " A photograph doesn ' t have to be just photograph,” he said. " It can be abstract. " Creative photography can be used in different ways, Stevanov said, but the trend now is to use it in conjunction with graphic design. Graphic Design is one option for Riedel. " There are all different types of fields you can go into -- magazines, sports, swimwear, " Riedel said, “along with graphic design. " Photography is used quite a bit in graphic design, according to Basgall, a graphic design major. " You can use it for layout background. You can use your imagination, ,, Basgall said. Knowing how to use the techniques to create effects helps photographers become more competitive in graphic design, Stevanov said. " The area is saturated right now and will be even more so in five years, " he said. Riedel said he may have to start out at a newspaper for money, " but I can still do my art photos on the side. " “The American public is becoming much more sophisticated. " Stevanov said. “You ' ve got to be flexible -- odds are very tough. " Art and High notes marked the university ' s marching band. A new director took his place in the music department and brought a " fresh start’ with him. Raydell Bradley arrived in July 1986 to take his post. But he was recruiting before he actually started his job. “Mr. Bradley started sending out letters in June, before he even began his position, " Dee Jantz, Hutchinson senior, said. Every high school senior in the state received a letter from Bradley regarding the university ' s marching band, Jantz said. " We ' ve had a lot of feedback, she said. Bradley uses a personal approach in recruiting. " Mr. Bradley usually goes out every week to visit area high schools, and he extended an invitation to (band members) to go with him, " Shawn Martin, Salina senior, said. When Bradley visits area high schools, he uses marketing techniques. “I really sell the program, " Bradley said. " The No. 1 thing as a freshman is it ' s nice to have 70 or 80 automatic friends that have similar interests. I emphasize the camaradarie of the marching band. " Since Bradley became the marching band director, the size of the band has nearly doubled. " We had 34 members last year at Parents ' Day. We ' ve almost doubled that this year, " Jantz said. The attitude of the band has criso become much more positive since Bradley came. " Morale is really up. Everybody has been really positive about everything we do, Martin said. " Mr. Bradley brought some new ideas. His whole approach is really fresh. It’s picked everybody up. Bradley changed the uniform right away. ' We ' ve gone back to a style we used a few years ago. We ' ve added a few things to it to make the band look better and bigger, " Martin said. Jantz added,“The uniform change was a fresh start. When we switched uniforms it was like a complete new band " The old uniform, a blouse and pants, " is fine for a high school. I think the older uniform is a sharper-looking uniform for a college band, " Marins said.

It ranked with the likes of Brigham Young University, West Point and University of California at Berkeley to name a few. Success didn ' t come easily to the debate team which was made up of Chris Crawford and Eric Krug, Great Bend seniors; Marsha Gribble, Garden City sophomore, and Shawn Montgomery, Wichita freshman. They had to plan, work, put in many hours and have the support of many people. The long road to success started the day after Crawford and Krug got back from a 19th place finish at the Cross Examination Debate Associa- tion National Debate Tournament the year before. ' " Eric, myself, and Bill (Watt, assistant professor of communication) sat down after nationals last year and wrote down goals, " Crawford said. " We had four main goals: being in the Top 20 in the nation, being one of the Top 5 individual teams in the nation, recruiting good talent for next year and maintaining good relations with Kansas high school debators, " Crawford said. During the fall debate season, the debate team was in the Top 20 lor nine out of 1 1 weeks. As far as Crawford and Krug being one of the top five individual teams, " Chris and Eric are potentially the best team in the nation, " Watt said. When they recruited Gribble, things started falling into place. However, she wasn ' t quite as optimistic as her fellow teammates. ' ! thought their goals were unrealistic, because I didn ' t know anybody when I came into the pro- gram, " Gribble said. According to Crawford, quality Kansas high school debators are looking to attend Hays rather than Kansas University, Kansas State University, Washburn University or Emporia State University. The two reasons why are because of the debate team ' s performance and the good relations it has with high school debators. Each goal obtained adds to the feeling of suc- cess. " I think the success of the debate team is great. All the hard work we ' re doing is paying off, " Gribble said. The debate team and Watt said the support received from campus administrators and instructors helped immensely. " Without their help, our success would be unobtainable, " Crawford said. In the spring semester, the debate team managed to rank 12 th in the national CEDA standings. There are 332 colleges and universities that belong to the CEDA. Doug Kaba, Hoxie junior, and Joel Moyer, Leoti sophomore, contributed to the spring team in addition to Krug, Crawford, Gribble and Montgomery. Although Crawford and Krug were seniors, the debate team will not lose them. " Debate is time consuming. When you ' re debating you can ' t take IS hours. Taking 12 hours is a full load. That ' s the case with Chris and Eric.

The seminar, Male-Female Communications, is designed to teach the differences between male communication and female communication, according to James Costigan, communications department chairman. Costigan " team- teaches " the course with Sandy Rupp, assistant professor of business administration and office education and former communication graduate assistant. The course is offered every three to four years, Costigan said. " They look for a team to teach it, to get a male- female component, " Costigan said. Costigan said that the course is an examination in the differences in male communication and female communication, involving work, school ' and intimate relations. “The issues come up, and it ' s interesting to see how they deal with it, " Costigan said. " The purpose of the class is more consciousness raising than anything, so males are aware of what females think and feel, and females arc award of what males think and feel. " One project involved a marriage simulation. The " married " couple were both employed and well- educated and had children. The rest of the class were divided into support groups, advising the married couple. “It gets very heated, " Costigan said. “A lot of people identify with tire point of view of the male or the female in tire situations. " " There’s a lot of interpersonal reaction., gathering research and information on the variable, " Costigan said. Costigan said that some students 1 attitudes had changed after taking the class. " Some people have some severe attitude changes about thinking and talking with other people about sex, " he said. " You get to understcard the psyche of another person, and inside their way of thinking. " Costigan said that more people took the class, offered for graduate credit, than ever before. Of the 50 people enrolled in the class in the spring, 29 were female and 2 1 were male. " It got a lot of interest, I guess. " " It’s probably one of the more exciting of the classes we’ve had here, " Costigan said, " It’s really hot - we bring up the important issues. " by David Burke Communication asy Computers make grading, writing easier for all AT T and the university ' s English department have one thing in common and it ' s not telephones — it ' s computers. As other departments in the university have been acquiring computers, so has the english department. It received the AT T computers and software in the summer of 1986, and they were used in the last two weeks of the summer session, The 14 computers are housed on the second floor of Martin- Alien Hall. They are hooked up to a mini main frame and use the AT Ts Writer Workbench as the main software. According to David Ison, associate professor of English, it took about $1.5 million from the state and federal grant to buy the whole set-up. Ison has done research for the last five years on what computer and software would be best for the English department. " After the five years of research, the AT T computer and software package was the best choice, and for the entire deparment it was a unanimous choice, " Ison said. The computers were chosen for more than just their word processing capabilities . " The software that we have is really unique It not only provides word processing, but it also analyzes writing styles, " Ison said. " We ' re one of about six universities in America to use software that analyzes writing. KU has it now, but we ' re well ahead of them now,” Ison said. Students in Composition I and II classes are the primary users of the computers. About 385 students used them in the fall and 690 in the spring. For every writing assignment, students follow a general procedure. They first write a pencil draft, type it into their computer file, ask the computer to analyze it, and they come away with a highly detailed analysis. Students are then able to use the information, go back and do their revisions on the computer and print out their paper on the printer. The English department faculty said the com- puters and software are great, but it’s drawing mixed reviews from the students. " I heard about the computers from the other students, and I thought it would be interesting, because I ' ve never used one before, " Steve Boxler, Norton freshman, said. " When I heard that computers were going to be used in composition class I wasn ' t happy. I thought it was going to be a waste of valuable time, " Troy Krenzel, Leoti freshman, said. ■ Despite the mixed reviews, students say the com- puters do help. " It helped me find my mistakes for me, like mis- spelled words and sentence disarrangements. Also another benefit is, when you type it in, its up on the screen, and you ' re able to see it and change it, " Krenzel said. " I think it ' s helped me quite a bit, Instead of guessing what I ' ve done wrong, it tells me, " Boxler said. With the computers helping the students write their papers, teachers are grading the papers dif- ferently. " Evaluations of the papers haven ' t eased up, but we ' re able to provide a higher level of evaluation, " Ison said. The computers are getting rave reviews, but there are still some problems to be ir oned out, " The reason why some people didn ' t like the com- puters is because they broke down all the time, and sometimes they would lose their whole assign- ments on the computer, " Krenzel said. " The facilities are almost always full, especially now, because most all of the composition classes are using them, " Krenzel said. Solutions to these problems are being sought with the acquisition of another mini main frame and more computers which will arrive in 1988. The advantages seem to outweigh the problems, v students and teacher say. " The computers are quite and advantage. It helps both student and teacher. The student doesn ' t have to bother the teacher on what to correct, and the teacher can work on other things, " Boxler said, by Brett Akagi PROOFREADER -Doug Back, Jetmore Junior, uses the computer to have his paper proofread, (Photo by Don King) English COMPUTERAGE “For Chris Magana Garden City Junior, the use of computers in English has become a routine.

CPhota by Carroll Beardslee) Philosophy is not one of the bigger, more popular departments at any university. It never has been and probably never will be. But with improved job placement for philosophy majors, the once undesirable major is now becoming more popular. Paul Faber, associate professor of philosophy and driving force behind the series of colloquia offered at the university, said although the series probably hasn ' t had any impact on the increase in philosophy majors, it has had something to do with the increase in non-philosophy students taking philosophy courses. Faber said during the two years the colloquia have been offered, attendance at the series has continued to increase. Tm pretty satisfied with the 15 or 16 people who attend each time, " Faber said. " A year ago in the first year we did it, we averaged about eight or maybe 10 people. So this year, we ' re up a bit from that. " Faber credits the increase in attendance to more publicity and the fact that it has been here for two years and more people know about it. " Over the past two years, we’ve had quite a few different topics, " Faber said. " This past year, we ' ve had Richard Hughen, (assistant professor of philosophy), talk about using computers in education. I gave a paper on what it means to call God ' good. ' The most recent topic was about philosophy of religion today, " Faber said. " There really is no one particular theme, " he said. " We ' re having these papers or talks delivered on something the speaker would be interested in and might be of interest to our undergraduate majors particularly. But the general public is invited to attend, " " This past year, we have been working on developing a course for the Kansas Regents Honors Academy which will be appearing this June, " Faber said. " That ' s the first Regents Honors Academy in the state of Kansas. Its going to be an annual program shifted from university to university, but Fort Hays is the sponsor and organizer of the first one and the philosophy department and sociology department are the two departments developing the academic part of it. We are setting up the courses for the students, " he said. by Brad Vacura Philosophy BROTHERS -David Faber, Ta- bor College, and brother Paul Faber, associate professor of pilosophy, discuss philo- sophical matters.

German, shows Erik Schmell- er, Hays freshman, Larisa Furland, Hays freshman, and Rachel Frank, Hays freshman, the new word for the day, (Photo by Jean Walker) diom Students meet cultures through other languages Foreign language requirements are a common practice at high schools and universities all over the world. Suprisingly it was not until recently that U.S. stu- dents pursuing a B.A, program have to fulfill a 10 credit hour foreign language requirement. The Kansas Board of Regents decided to follow the current call for more foreign language instruction. " Because the Board of Regents felt that B.A. ' s should have a broader background, the university added the requirement, " James Murphy, vice pre- sident of academic affairs, said. According to Ruth Firestone, chairman of the foreign language department, every student should have an understanding and appreciation of the international world, and a foreign language gives such an understanding. Students ' opinions are split on the requirement. " I don ' t like the foreign language requirement. For one thing I don ' t think you should have to take it if you don ' t want to. Also, I don ' t know how much they ' re going to rase it, " Russell Brown, Ellinwood freshman, said. " I had French for a year in high school. I like French culture and the way the language sounds, I ' m taking a French 1 course, and I enjoy learning it, " Kamela Jones, Garden City freshman, said. The new foreign language requirement will even- tually bring additional students to the foreign lan- guage department But according to Firestone, the number of students hasn ' t really increased yet, even if it does look like an increase on paper, " We are hoping it will go up, I think in time it will. It ' s just a matter of getting everyone to under- stand the requirement, " Firestone scad, Even though the outlook seems good she said she is a little concerned that some advisers and high school counselors are telling students to postpone taking a foreign language course. " This is a mistake because we may get a rush of students all at once. The department may not be able to handle the onslaught of students trying to meet their requirements, " Firestone said. The major reason for advisers telling students to delay this requirement is that the student is an undecided major and is not sure that he has to take a language. Another reason is that " foreign language has the image of being difficult, and that simply isn ' t true. If you can speak English, you can leam to speak anything else, " Firestone said. " I think it will be tough, because you will have to leam something completely new, " Brown said. Of the three languages offered, Spanish has the highest enrollment because it has a reputation of being easier to learn, but that ' s not the only reason. " The only foreign language 1 might use is Span- ish. because the U.S. is becoming a more Spanish speaking nation, " Brown said. According to Firestone, the benefits of learning a foreign language are many. The students get addi- tional credit hours; they can get quality jobs with companies involved in international affairs, and they are much better educated. " Learning a foreign language is like opening a- nother window to the world. It makes people more receptive to what other people think, " Firestone said. by Becky Oborny Foreign Languages Y A FUN TEACHER Sonja Dril- ling Hays senior, seems to have a good time teaching, (Photo by Robert Bunting) JOY OF LEARNING -Wilson Elementary students obviously enjoy the time Sonja Drilling, Hays senior takes to explain things, (Photo by Robert Bunting) ONE-ON-ONE- Sonja Dretling, Hays senior, takes the time to help her students individually. (Photo by Robert Bunting) X Education — Learning stays daily task for student-teacher Most people think that once a student-teacher is out teaching that the learning process is over for him. Student- teachers say this is untrue and that learning begins with student-teaching. According to Dick Baker, professor of education and coordinator of student-teaching, students have to show a number of q ualities before they get to student-teach. " A good student-teacher has to have knowledge of his subject area, have a certain amount of maturity, be able to talk to students, peers and supervisors and know how an institution func- tions, Baker said. Once student- teachers go out and actually teach, they are excited and a little anxious, they said. " I was anxious, worried and excited. I had butterflies in my stomach, but was ready to jump in. I felt that I was prepared well enough to teach, " Dan May, Mount Hope senior, said, Hope student-taught mathematics at Plainville High School in the fall semester. But when the excitement dies down, student- teachers said they must be prepared for their classes. Kristin Anderson, Garden City senior, student- taught music at Roosevelt Grade School, Hays, " I didn ' t know exactly what to expect, but I felt that I prepared. I ' ve been around music most of my life. My father is a music teacher, and I have a good background with children, " Anderson said. Still, thorough preparation doesn ' t take care of all problems, Anderson said, " I think of stuff that would happen and think of what I would do. I ' m finding out though, there are some situations you ' re prepared for, but you can ' t always do the right tiring, ' ' Anderson said. As the student- teachers grade their students, so must they be graded for their performances. According to Baker, classroom cooperating teachers and various university supervisors (from the education department and respective departments) evaluate the student- teachers. A final grade is given after a joint evaluation is done from all those involved. After the student-teachers have taught for a few weeks, they say they too realize that maybe teaching isn ' t what they thought it would be. " Teaching is like life; it has its ups and downs, " Anderson said. In the end, teaching is a learning experience for student-teachers. " I can see why teachers only teach nine months out of the year, " May said, " because you have to grade papers from the day before and still plan the lessons for the next day. If teachers taught 1 2 months out of the year, they would be ready for the loony bin. " " With as much preperation as I ' ve had, I still have a lot to learn, I ' m finding out about myself and others, " May said. by Brett Akagi | p TEACHE TEACHER ■ Student teaching at Wilson Elementary School, 101 East 28th St, is a challenge tot Sonja Dreillng, Hays senior, (Photo by Robert Bunting) Education Tjy|i|][jn j mw Pilot ' s license helps career, offers freedom Physics. Mention the word and images of complex equations, large books pile piled to the sky and mass confusion might flood the mind. However there is another image that mightcome to mind, especially in the university physics department - Hying. The university physics department offers credit for courses taken to become a certified and licensed pilot. Students can take ground, flight and instrument rating school. They take these classes to obtain their private pilots license, instrument rating, flight instructor rating or license to fly commercially. According to Maurice Witten, physics depart- ment chairman, students can earn up to 21 credit hours from the university. However, besides the cost of the credit hours students also have to pay for instructors and plane rental. " It costs about $2,500 for a private pilots license, but it doesn ' t ever expire, " Witten said. The cost of getting a license might be high, but according to Witten, it is an investment in a career. " It looks good on the resume to have a private pilots license, especially to a corporation that has s jet or plane, " said Brian Cheney, flight instructor at the Hays Municipal Airport. Students who obtain their private pilots license can go on and fly commercially. Two former students are pilots for Air Midwest now. According to Cheney, Notoma sophomore, major airlines are hiring a lot of new pilots because of the upcoming retirement of many pilots. He said he aspires to become a pilot for an airline some day, " The airlines are hiring like crazy. As soon as I graduate I should be able to get a job, " Cheney said. For those students who don ' t aspire to become a commercial pilot, getting their license has a different meaning. " Getting my private pilots license just reinforced my feeling that if you want to do something, you can do it if you set your mind to it, " Donna Flei- schacker, physical education teacher at Kennedy Middle School, said. Fleisckacker said those want to become a pilot should not be afraid of heights; they should believe in themselves and have the desire to fly. by Brett Akagi Physics PILOT Brian Cheney, Notoma sophomore, works as a flight instructor.

However, of those only a few paleontologists study musk oxen fossils, Michael Nelson is among those few. Nelson, chairman of the department of earth sciences, began working with musk oxen fossils in 1978. Since then, he has written several papers about musk oxen in Utah, Idaho and Kansas. " Because of the distribution of those papers I ' ve written, personnel from the Alaska Fish and Game Commission asked me if I was interested in Alaskan musk oxen, " Nelson said. ‘That’s how I came across the two musk oxen skulls I have now, " Nelson estimates the skulls that the Alaska Fish and Game Commission sent him to be younger than 100,000 years old, “We ' ve got a research grant funded to get some actual isotopic ages on the skulls, " Nelson said. " If the skulls are under 40,000 years old, we can use radio carbon dates to get a good estimate of their age, " Nelson said the two musk oxen skulls he has are Tundra musk oxen, because they were found in the tundra. " Those are the type that most people are familiar with and can identify better with because they ' ve seen pictures of them. " Today, there is only one species of musk oxen living. Nelson said they are located in the Aitic regions of the world, like Greenland and Alaska. " People today know there are musk oxen in Alaska, but they don ' t know much about the fossil distribution. " We will be studying a species of musk oxen thafs only known in Siberia today, " Nelson said. Bill Fuchs, Newton, Mass., graduate student, has been working with fossils for years. Fuchs is doing his thesis on multi-tuverculate fossils, early mammals that were about the size of a morose or smaller. " These are among the very first mammals to exist, " he said, " These little guys are just fascinating - they ' re neat. There ' s nothing really very much like them around now, and trying to figure out what they are and what they did is a really fascinating task, " he said. With fossils in general, every time you find something you are the first person to have seen it. Its been buried in the rock for millions of years.

Others keep their university alive and kicking with monetary donations. Graduates of the university ' s chemistry department have gone one step further, however, with donations of equipment to their alma mater. " We ' ve received some research grade instru- mentation in the last few years, " Max Rumpel, chemistry department chairman, said. One instrument was donated in the previous school year by FMC, a chemical corporation in New Jersey, and one unit was donated in the spring from the Monsanto corporation. Graduates from the university work for both of those corporations, Both FMC and Monsanto are associated with farm chemicals. " It’s through alumni who are now working with these corporations that make these donations possible, " Rumpel said. The used equipment donated by FMC and Mon- santo would each cost " in the $10,000 range " if new, Rumpel said, and now, each is worth $3,000 to $4,000, Rumpel said. Rumpel said the donations are very useful to the department. " In each case, we can separate the ingredients in a liquid mixture, " he said. " If we have a mixture of different amino acids, we can look at them and see which amino acids are present. " Rumpel said the equipment is " highly sensitive " and can detect information from as little as a drop of the mixture. " We can look at liquids such as gasoline and determine which percentages of hydrocarbons are in gasoline, " he said. The new equipment will help students in courses where their lab results are analyzed. Rumpel said. " The donation from FMC will help our bio- chemistry course with the work they do in the laboratory, " Rumpel said. " They can do ' before ' and ' after ' reports on chemical reactions, " he said. Although the instrument from Monsanto hasn ' t been put to use yet, Rumpel said he hopes it will strengthen the chemistry department. by David Burke Chemistry V — DOES IT LOOK THE SAME?

Students view a video tape with each unit that they cover to increase theii level of understand- ing. " There are different levels of knowledge and watching the video tapes imparts higher levels of knowledge, And that guarantees a higher level of understanding, " Watson said. The students say they like to watch the tapes and the idea behind it. " I like watching the video tapes a lot, It explains the body and its functions, plus you get to see them working. " A lot of people can ' t visualize how the body works, but when they can see it work, they have a better idea, " Mike McMillen, Atwood junior, said. As every student knows, taking notes and listen- ing to lectures can be somewhat tedious and bor- ing. With the video tapes, it still teaches the stu- dents and gets away from note taking. " 1 think the tapes are a good teaching tool, and it gives us a break from writing notes, " Brian Belleau, Hill City freshman, said. Watson has only high praises for the video tapes.

They do not pile into a hospital operating room to see the operations, but watch them on video tape, Video tapes on the body have been used in medical schools for years. According to John Wat- son, associate professor of biology, he ' s been showing the video tapes of the different body parts for about four years at the university. " Our video tape library spans all the body parts and functions. In the past, only physicians got to see these things, but with video tape, students now have a chance to see, " Watson said, The reason why the video tapes are used Watson said, is because they are limited to how and what they can show in class. " There are certain things that you can ' t do, like cut on a live human ' s brain or do a heart trans- plant. Biological Science TIP " Michael Renella, professor of mathematics, explains a formula to Tim Kidd and Dino Fields, Hays seniors {Photo by Don King) FORMULA John Votaw, chair- man of the mathematics department, explains a formula in his introductory class (Photo by Don King) Mathematics c — One of the puposes of any university is that it gives the chance for students who have graduated to " share the wealth " of what they have learned with others. Mathematics students taking a seminar class at the university each spring get the chance to " share the wealth " with fellow students while they are still in college. The requirement of the course is for students to present a 15-20 page paper to their classmates, Charles Votaw, professor of mathematics, said. " One of the requirements for getting the credit is to present an acceptable paper covering some aspect of the mathematics department, " Votaw said, " whether it mathematics, math education, or computers. " The topics are varied, Votaw said. " Some of the things are history, the history of mathematics, or a personality from mathematics, " Votaw said. " But they have to use mathematics as a part of their presentation and show how that relates to mathematics. " The 12 students in the seminar class each meet with their adviser to agree on a date that they will present the paper. The other students must be present to be " an audience " for the presentations, Votaw said. Votaw scfid that although some students consider the presentations difficult, " it ' s no tougher than an average paper for English Composition . " There ' s a certain amount of anxiety involved in it, " Votaw said. " They get really anxious at the time, but once they get done and look at it in reflection, it ' s not so bad as they thought it was at the time. Although four of the students are math education majors, Votaw said getting up in front of others for a presentation helps in any kind of math-related occupation. " We don ' t think of it so much as a teaching experience, but as a valid learning experience in that they learn to research a topic, organize that topic and present it in an appropriate job situation, " Votaw said. " Not all of them will get jobs in that kind of thing, but it ' s something they can point to and say at least they got some presentation experience.

Fitness for the handicapped is gaining attention in the health, physical education and recreation department. Physical fitness is very important for the handicapped. " They need fitness for their daily routine, " Barry Lavay, assistant professor of HPER, said. Adapted Physical Education is a course in which all HPER majors must enroll, Lavay said, Adapted P.E. is designed along with a practicum to help people learn how to teach the physically and mentally handicapped, Lavay said, " The people becoming certified need experience with as many special populations as possible, " Lavay said, " so they have expertise to put a program together for the handicapped, " Students are learning to teach physical fitness to different types of people, Marsha Cressler, Jen- nings graduate assistant, said. " In Adapted P.E., what we try to set up is an experience in how to teach the mentally retarded. It takes a lot of hands on (experience), " Cressler said. Not only does Adapted P.E. prepare HPER majors for the future, it also provides a service to the community. One day a week the practicum involves children from Lincoln Elementary School, 1906 Ash, students in the Transitional First Grade. Transitional First Grade " is a program designed for 6-year olds, for kids who have been through kindergarten, but are not ready for the first grade, " Deanna Smith, Transitional First Grade teacher, said. " This is to work on specific skills, to increase their motor skills. " These skills are fundamental to all sports, Lavay said. " If they can ' t perform those activities, their peers will not ask them to play. Consequently, they lead a sedentary lifestyle, " Lavay said. Many of the children in Adapted., P.E. are " developmentally delayed, " Cressler said. " They don ' t have a mature throw or kick. " Cressler said, however, that not all the children are slow in motor development. " Some of the kids are normal in that they don’t really need Adapted P.E., " Cressler said. " They are learning disabled in other areas. ' ' The Homer B. Reed Center, 317 West 13th, also benefits by sending people to the Adapted P.E, class. " With the Reed Center adults we try to teach them skills they can use in their leisure time, " Cressler said, " We try to work on cognition and lis- tening skills, to make sure they understand, " We like to do the Reed Center practicum because it ' s getting to the point where everyone will have a handicapped person in their class. It offers students more opportunities if they know how to work with the handicapped, " Cressler said. The graduate students in Adapted P,E. plan the activities for both the children and the adults. The students select the activities and instruct the participants. Undergraduate HPER students assist with demonstration and teaching. " One goal of mine (in class) is to not only talk about theory, but to have hands on experience, " lavay said. | | by Leslie Ragan WHERE AM I ■ Another obstacle is conquered by a transitional first grader .(Photo by Jean Walker) HPER FOLLOW THE LEADER -Lincoln Elementary students follow each other through the hoops- (Photo by ean Walker) OVER THERE -Carol Seiko and Carolyn Dubbert, graduate students, teach motor skills to transitional fkst graders.

The weekly lab all military science students have to participate in offers them the opportunity to test their practical skills, “We do things you can ' t do in the classroom. We get out in the woods and get dirty. We teach them things they will need to know, " Capt. Thomas Hardy, assistant professor of military science, said. Lab instruction ranges from basic leadership skills to land navigation. In fall and spring, the labs consist of outside exercises, including individual and squad movement techniques, defense techniques, patrolling, water survival and land navigation. In the winter, instruction is moved back into the classroom, focusing on leadership skills and tactics. Those labs are also reserved for detailed instruction on such specific topics as military insurance. Special training aids are used to enhance tactics training. What might look like toys is actually an instruction tool. " We use little plastic figures for instruction. Each cadet has to learn how to place men in position and how to do the correct movements, " Hardy said. David Zigler, Hays sophomore, is a junior in the Reserves Officer Training Corps. The juniors actively participate in the exercises. " I enjoy the labs. I think they provide us with the opportunity to do things we usually can ' t do. My favorite exercise is land navigation. It ' s a challenge. They give you a map with little x ' s and you are supposed to find the plotted points, If you can ' t find it, you have to keep trying. It’s just really challenging, " Zigler said. ROTC seniors actually conduct the exercises under the observation of supervisors. " Conducting the labs is a good experience. I like patrolling. You are able to use your tactical knowledge as effectively as you can, " Brian Michael, Brewster senior, said. Michael said the labs are valuable for the juniors, because they are helpful in preparing for advanced camp. " We seniors have all been through advanced camp. The labs are designed to cover military skills and labs the cadets will be exposed to at advanced camp, " Michael said. Not only ROTC members have to participate in the labs. Any student enrolled in a military science class is required to attend, " It is important because it enhances instruction, " Michael said. by Bettina Heinz JUMP " Cadets Larry Hilme$ t WaKeeney freshman, Jeffrey Holcomb, Hugoton junior, and Carmeilia Tier, Hays so- phomore, take obstacles during squad movement tactics exercises in February (Photo by Don King) ROTC The business department at the university along with the Small Business Administration, sponsored by the federal government are helping businesses in western Kansas. The program, called the Small Business Jnsfifufe is " designed to provide management support for small businesses by seniors and graduate students, " Dale Peier, who co-teaches the class with Clare Gustin. The program has operated at the university since 1974, and Peier has been involved in the SBI program since 1977. The university is contacted by the businesses which want student input in their operations. Peier said that the only types of businesses the students cannot work with are banks and newspapers. Most of the businesses are within a one-hour drive from Hays for the students ' convenience. The students go to the businesses and go through their financial records and billings, and then do research and studies on how to help them operate more efficiently. They then usually visit the businesses three to six times each semester to relay the imput, Davy Cambell, Manhattan graduate student, said, " the SBI program is quite valuable in that it allows the student to get out of the classroom and experience different types of situations in the business world in different areas such as finance, marketing, feasibility studies etc. " Usually three students work together with one client, and some groups work with more than one client at a time. " What it really does is it provides management council to the client at no cost and provides students with real life experiences, " Peier said. The class is limited to 15 students each semester, and the instructor’s permission is required to enroll in the class. Peier also said the students are not required to be business majors, and the most qualified would be permitted to enroll. Martha Brigden, Healy senior, said the program has helped her. " Management consulting 703 has provided me the unique opportunity of blending tools acquired through former college courses with a " real " business, in a " real world " setting, where the problems and subsequent solutions are not well- defined in nice, neat multiple choice or true false questions. " This experience and ambiguity has made the course stimulating and challenging, yet scary. The responsibility is great, for the stakes are not for grades. On the contrary the survival of a " real " business is at stake, and the businessperson’s seriousness towards the consulting enhances my own, " Brigden said. by Jeff Vistuba TEAMWORK -Martha Bridgen, Healy senior , studies material with Dan Shimp, Topeka senior.

" In addition to that, the computers were available at a reasonable price. " We also got the 12 new computers at lower price than the new ones which are exactly like the old ones except for the expanded memory. We paid $18,000 for the old ones and $15,000 for the new ones, " Guyot said, The students know the importance of computers and their applications. " I think it was essential to have a computer class, because soon all of my classes will revolve around the computer, " Michelle Sullivan, Geneseo fresh- man. said. " It ' s essential to know how to use a computer especially in college, because high schools are using computers now. When I was student teaching at Oakly High School, they were using computers in accounting, typing, and office practice, " Donna Golden, Arapahoe, Colo., senior said. Computers can be used at work, but students al- so see it being used outside of a work environment. " Having a working knowledge will help me a lot, because I’m coming in contact with computers even off the job. I plan on getting a personal computer myself, " Golden said. Business world extends use of computers The business education department doubled up its computer capacity in the spring semester. 12 new Zenith micro-computers were added to the 1 2 that are already there. According to Wally Guyot, chairman of the busi- ness department, computers are becoming a main- stay, especially in the business world, " It ' s almost essential that business majors know how to use word processors and microprocessors, " Guyot said. Word processing is an important skill to have and the university is making sure that university per- sonell is learning it, Guyot said. " The university developed a staff development program for office support personell, in which they get to attend free sessions on how to use a word processor. " Our graduates would be at a disadvantage if they didn ' t have it. Five years ago it wasn ' t that important, but starting a year ago employers started expecting the employees to have it, " Guyot said.

(Photo by Don King) Industrial Arts Computer aid boosts skills in drafting Computer Aided Drafting is " a thing that is now " , Bill Havice, assistant professor of industrial education, said. Computer Aided Drafting, or CAD as it is routinely called, is a relatively new concept in drafting. CAD uses a computer instead of pencil and paper to do normal drafting procedures. The system was first available in 1981 and has since become popular throughout the drafting world. CAD first came to the university through a series of workshops in the summer of 1984. " The workshops were very successful because a definite need was there, " Havice said. After the positive response to the workshops it was decided that a CAD course should be offered at the university. Havice said CAD is very efficient in saving time. " Statistics show that architects and designers spend 30 to 35 percent of their time editing and revising their pencil drawings. These computers will cut that time down considerably. " Although 18 students are currently using the computers, this summer will mark the first time students will receive credit toward their degrees for completing the course. Industrial arts major Marshall Blaha, Linn senior, said .he profits from the CAD course. " CAD is an excellent addition to the whole department. Actually manual drafting is becoming archaic, and I think CAD is almost mandatory. I feel I was lucky to get in on it when I did, " Blaha said. The department started with one unit but grants enabled the department to extend its program to six units. David Linn, industrial education major, said CAD is a valuable part of the program, “I think its a great addition to the department. CAD is another tool available to the draftsman, but a person still needs to know the basic rules of drafting, and CAD makes it easier to manage and manipulate a drawing, " Linn, Lamed senior, said. Havice said he thinks CAD will do nothing but progress, " From its introduction in 1981 until now I can ' t believe how far it has come, " he said. by Brett Akagi OLD WAYS ■Drafting by hand, Scott Vaden, Hill City senior, works on a drafting project. {Photo by Don King) Industrial Arts Selling power and craftmanship doesn’t necessarily seem an important part of home economics, but the Fashion Merchandising class learns it is. As part of the Fashion Merchandising course, students set up displays in the exhibition area of Davis Hall. According to Merlene Lyman, chairman of the home economics department, local merchants provide goods to display. " Merchants lend students clothing, seasonal items, and we’ve had some displays on houseware items. They don’t always realize how many students see the display. I know students have seen things and gone and bought it, " Lyman said. Selling power, lighting and craftmanship are three of the six elements the students ' displays are graded on. “We look at if the display ' s promise truly reflects the values in the store and if the materials have been skillfully used, " Lyman, said, Though the displays are part of a course, the students are responsible for their own ideas and props. " We provide training tapes and slides to instruct the students, but the students do the work on their own; they are very independent ,” Lyman said. Carolyn Ricker, Alden junior and Fashion Merchandising major, enjoys setting up displays. " It really is fun, but you have to be creative. Ini in advanced display. This is my second year, so I make up five displays each semester. " Clothing is a popular display. According to Lyman, the Brass Buckle and Kline ' s lend the students a lot. Students do like to use other ideas, though. " I ' ve mainly used clothing, but would like to use something new. I ' m working on a display using toys right now, " Ricker said. The exhibition window is on the second floor of Davis Hall. The displays change every three weeks. Students say the display is very interesting and really enjoy the seasonal displays. “It adds something to Davis Hall, and I really like what the students come up with, " Gina Kruse, Newton senior, said. by Jeff Vistuba W Home Economics WOW ■Carolyn Money , senior and Melissa Hobroek, Natoma sophomore, look at a display dress (Photo by Photo Lab) CHECK Carin Cheney, Eexford sophomore, looks at a price list o!

(Photo by Photo Lab) Hisl0r v EXPERT " As he is from Germany himself, It Is natural for Helmut Schmeller professor of history, to teach European history, (Photo by Don King) Cultural ties between Europe, America taught Though students here might think that the amount of historical data to learn in an American history class is quite sufficient, it is the Atlantic community where Western history was made. Classes in 19th and 20th century European history give students the opportunity to see the cultural and intellectual ties between Europe and America. One history professor at the university has a profound personal background on European history. Helmut Schmeller, profesor of history, is from Germany, " I would agree that most of our values and attitudes, our perceptions of nature and man come from Europe, " Schmeller said, Schmeller said that a certain lack of knowledge of European history is only natural, " There is a fair amount of lark of knowledge, but I don ' t mean that accusatory, that ' s natural, One would find that at larger institutions as well. And the perception of American history in European schools shows a lack of knowledge, too, " Schmeller said. " There are many misconceptions of European history, especially the history of Germany. Professor Jakobsen at the Universitaet Bonn recently said that American students see Germany either under the swastika or the Mercedesstar. Prior to the unification of Germany, there is just not very much here, " Schmeller said. He said that the knowledge of American history among European students is not more profound than the knowledge of European history among American students. " The understanding of young Europeans of both American and German history is rather at dismal today. They don ' t know a great deal about their own history either, " Schmeller said. " There is a certain decline of interest in history, some states in Germany have even substituted the subject history with such subjects as consumer science, which I think is regrettable, " Schmeller said. Actually, what is usually referred to as European history should be called history of the Atlantic community, Schmeller said. " I think to be fair one has to call it the history of the Atlantic community rather than European history. There are a number of parallels between the history of the Atlantic community and the American history. Students usually take the class in combination with American history, so they are able to see the parallels, " Schmeller said. " It is important to see how certain ideas, certain freedoms developed in Europe. There are many parallels, " Steve Maddy, Norton senior, said. by Bettina Heinz History ELECTION YEAR " Dale Lyons, 1st District Democratic can- didate, lectures tn the class o!

(Photo by Don King) V Political Science Elections spark student interest in political science Instruction in political science goes beyond the usual classroom courses, especially when it ' s an election year. The election of the Kansas governor therefore gave students the opportunity to relate their classroom knowledge to current events more than ever. Political organizations like the Young Republicans and the Young Democrats saw a fall semester of unusual hectic activity, as students supported either Mike Hayden or Tom Docking in the election, In addition to that, candidates were brought to campus and gave guest lectures in classes like Current Politial Issues. Don Slechta, chairman of the political science department, said the fact that it was an election year did not really change the instruction, as it is geared at current events anyway. " We are always feeling compelled to use current events so the students can relate to the instruction, " Slechta said. The foundation for a better understanding of current political events is given through classes like Current Political Issues. At first sight suprisingly, students spend most of their time watching television in this class. " Two out of three days we watch the news together. At least 75 percent of all the information we get is from TV. One feels compelled to teach students how to watch it, " Slechta said. It seems that watching TV is not as easy as it sounds to be. According to Slechta, students are taught how to crack an issue by learning how to get the basic information from television. Once a week, students discuss the news and predict possible outcomes. “Once they get used to it, they realize how it is possible to predict the outcome of an event, because of the parallels in events, " Slechta said. Slechta said he has students coming up to him and saying, " I never understood how to watch the news before, " or " I never watched the news before. " He said some students even end up " hooked " on news. " I had one student, " he said, " who came to me and said he rearranged his schedule so that he coraid the news broadcast of every station to compare them. He said he got hooked on news. " Students in the class are also required to read TIME magazine. Often, they end up as regular readers of a news magazine or start subscribing to news magazines, Slechta said. by Bettina Heinz Political Science I DON ' T KNQW-Gary Domer, di- rector of research and plan ning, Kansas Insurance Com misstoners Office, trys to an- swer a student ' s question.

The course is shown on several television stations throughout western Kansas through a series of 28 video tapes. The course is worth three credit hours of college level economics. " The purpose of the course is to offer a college level course for public consumption, " Dan Rupp, professor of economics, said. There are 14 tapes shown each semester, each tape lasting 30 minutes. The students ' textbooks coincide with the tape as each tape is a different chapter in the textbook . Rupp said many problem examples on the tapes are the same examples in the book. The first semester is dedicated to the study of macro economics. Macro is the big picture of the world of economics, covering such subjects as world interest rates and economic growth. The second semester covers the study of micro economics. Micro is the study of subjects such as supply and demand analysis, determination of wages and whether or not businesses should expand or close and why. Students can enroll in both courses or in either one of the two classes. The first semester of macro economics had 34 students enrolled in the class. Thirty students were enrolled in the micro session. The students take open book exams at home and then send them to Rupp for grading. If a student has a problem, he can call Rupp for help. Rupp has designated a time for such calls. Students can also gather at one of the 13 telenet locations throughout western Kansas, and Rupp can take questions through this system. This way, he answers questions for the whole class live, much the same as a two-way radio system works. Rupp calls the process a " self -study process. " " If the students need help, they can call me, " he said. According to Rupp, there are students representing western Kansas from Hoisington to Dodge City. Television stations carrying the class es are KOOD-Bunker Hill, KAYS-Hcrys, KLOE-Goodland and KTVC-Ensign. by Jeff Vistuba Economics Experience not necessary for farm chores While university students are warm, snug and asleep in their beds, university dairy workers are hard at work. They must be at the university dairy at 2:30 a.m. and start milking the 66 cows at 3 a.m. The milking takes about three hours, even with automated milkers, There are still more chores to be done after that. Once the students get their chores done, they get to go to their classes, but the cows have to be milked again in the afternoon. They must be milked twice a day, every day. It sounds like a tough part-time university job, and the manager of the dairy farm, Mike Olett, will be the first one to admit it. “The students working here have long hours and little pay. They do hard work with little recognition, but despite these things they are doing quality work, " Olett said. According to Olett, there are seven people who work regularly on the dairy farm, five of which are students. Their responsibilities include taking care of the calves, feeding, cleaning and milking. According to Olett, a lot of the students are not from a dairy farm background, and some don’t even have an agriculture related major. Lycrecia Hill, Harvyville senior, said she didn ' t know a thing about dairy cattle, but said its really interesting. “I like it (dairy farm) a lot. I ' m also doing student- teaching right now, I miss farming. I ' ve been raised on it, but there isn ' t any money in it, " Hill said. Students who work at the dairy can see it as just another part-time job or something more. " Working on the dairy farm is pretty good. It ' s good experience, and it keeps me close to agriculture. When you go to college, you get away from agriculture, " Kevin Ochs, Russell Springs junior, said. Students find that despite the early hours, hard work and little pay they are proud of the dairy farm and enjoy the work. " I feel like Fort Hays does a good job with what we have. We ' re not like other places with big equipment. The farm is managed well, and we have good student workers.

It is one of the oldest clinics of its type in the States, having been opened in 1932 . But more than that, it is also one of the most innovative in that graduate psychology students can work with clients on a one-to-one basis. James Ryabik, director, said the hands-on experience is an excellent preparation for the graduate students. " First of all, they gain experience with a variety of real problems in living and do this under care- ful supervision. The people who are being trained will be functioning in mental health settings, " Ryabik said. " This place operates in a similar manner. The only difference is the size; it is smaller. The students are likely to encounter any problem of emotional nature that they are likely to run into at a mental health center. We are practicing all the things they are going to be doing when they go out on jobs, " Ryabik said. Jay Lohrey, Oklahoma City graduate student, majors in clinical psychology. Lohrey is in training for the position of graduate assistant. He remembers his first session with a client. " I was shaking like a dog. I was nervous. When the first session was over, I was relieved and excited. I was finally doing what I was always wanting to do, " Lohrey said. " It ' s kind of scary. But the excellent supervision and the excellent facilities make it a lot easier. I ' m learning a lot, " Lohrey said. Lohrey said the Kelly Clinic training is essential no matter what type of career one pursues in psychology. “If you ' re going right on to a job setting, it is very important If you are going on to a doctoral program, you have an added edge of getting into a good grad school, because there is usually hardly any practical training available in Master ' s programs, " Lohrey said. David Anderson, Winfield graduate student, is a graduate assistant to the Kelly clinic. " I see clients, do some testing, attend staff meetings and backup for any emergencies, " Anderson said. " There ' s nothing I ' d rather be doing. It gives me a great deal of personal satisfaction to help people overcome their problems. I don ' t have any answers. I see myself as a facilitator, I get as much out of the relationship with my clients as they do, " Anderson said. Anderson said the clinic was one of the main reasons why he came to the university. " The fact that there was a working clinic here, offering an education consisting of more than just books, made me come here. I think that ' s important. " I know my professors are doing the same thing when they see clients. These people see clients; they know what ' s going on. They have to constantly learn new things because their clients require it, and so they can pass it on, " Anderson said, by Bettina Heinz CONFERENCE-David Ander- son, Winfield graduate stu- dent; Stephen Klein, psy- chology professor; and graduate students Chrlssy Reid, Beloit, and Jay Lohrey, Oklahoma City, discuss counseling.

They are getting involved in social work programs and are preparing themselves to help people handle these type of concerns. There are 44 students who have declared them- selves social work majors. These students are unique because they are part of a growing pro- gram on campus, Six years ago, the Kansas State University Social Work Program offered its first course here ac- cording to Nevell Razak, chairman of the so- ciology department, But the opportunity to get a degree was not possible until later. " The full-fledge program has been (in effect) approximately three years, making it relatively new on campus, " Razak said. To help sociology students, the university this year received full-time K-State faculty member Meg Baker. Baker, as sociate professor in social work, started here during the fall semester. Not only is she the instructor for all of the courses, but she is also the adviser for the students she instructs. According to Baker, there are 10 programs of this kind throughout Kansas, and the program set up at Hays is the fourth largest in the state. Before the program was implemented on cam- pus, people interested in social work were unable to receive the necessary training in this part of the state. They either had to take the courses at K- State or at one of the colleges offering the program in another part of the state. One of the requirements of the program is that, during the fall semester of their senior year, the students must take 10 hours at K-State , This year Toni Clark, Colby senior, and some other students were required to commute to Man- hattan for two days a week. " The trip is tiring, but it ' s one of the costs of taking the program, and one makes that choice when starting out in the program, " Clark scad. According to Baker, not only are the students required to attend classes at K-State, they must also complete 50 hours of volunteer work at a community agency in the area. by Becky Oborny Sociology ATTENTIVE Toni L.

Our last one was very non- traditional, " Mary Hassett, dean of nursing, said. Karen Davis, senior representative of the nursing students, said the last program lacked structure. " It used to be that you would go at your own pace. We needed more structure, It wasn ' t so much unstructured, we just weren ' t using our in- structors as much as we could, " Davis, Kansas City, senixsaid Nursing, like so many other fields is always in a state of change, Hassett said. " Nursing knowledge changes so fast, that ' s another reason why we are changing our curricu- lum, " she said. Some changes that have been made include new classes in drug classifications, current nur- sing issues, nursing theories, and courses that were taught in segments are now taught at one time. The nursing department is also promoting computer literacy and has decreased the total hours needed for a nursing major by six credit hours. Even though the new curriculum is catching a little flack from students who are juniors or sen- iors because of the change in the middle of their college careers, it is still highly praised. " I say it (the new curriculum) swayed me to stay here at Hays to get a nursing degree, " Steve Vaughan, Scott City sophomore, said. " It caused me some anxiety, but I personally didn ' t get mad at anybody. I ' m sure this won’t be the only time in life to be caught in the middle of a change. " It was a good program before. Now its better, " Davis said. The change in the nursing program came at a time when the nursing department was up for accreditation by a national nursing organi- zation. " I ' m glad I stayed instead of moving on, " Vaughan said. ' Tm sure that this program will be changed later on just to keep up with the times, In any higher institution of learning there will be changes when a change is needed, " Davis said, by Brett Akagi ■ Nursing BE CAREFUL ' Using a sy- ringe properly isn ' t an easy task as Bill McDonald shows Sue Owens, St. Francis senior, what to do, (Photo by Robert Bunting) STATISTICS -Janelle Rob- lyer, Topeka junior, looks over charts with instructor Bill McDonald.

James Jermon, Comp- ton, Calif., senior, and Henry Alexander, Ard- more, Okla., junior, who live in No. 324, really don ' t know why the guys hang out in their room. They both agree that it has something to do with the music and being straight talkers. " (Room) 324 is where it ' s happening. The music is good and the conversation is good, " David Braun, St. Cloud, Fla., freshman, said. But it ' s more than that, There is something about Jermon and Alexander that sets them apart from the rest of the guys, white or black, on third floor. Reed Holmes, Atwood freshman, said Jermon and Alexander will talk to you. “It doesn ' t matter if I ' m white. They ' ll talk or listen if I need to talk. " One thing about room 324 is that most of the guys who hang around there are freshmen. The guys who have been at the university a while don ' t spend much time there. Alexander thought that may be because the newer guys aren ' t used to things at college yet. He said it ' s hard to get used to the slower pace of life here in Kansas and that their room may remind the guys of their city home and the pace of life there. “The climate and the music in this room may be their last link to the city, and home, for most of these guys, " Alexander said. " And until they get used to it here in Hays, they ' ll continue to come around. " However, Jermon said no one ever gets ' ' used to it " here. “We just try to take some of the pain away for these guys who are far away from home. ' ' he said. One can be sep- arated from home either by miles or by urban dif- ferences, Jermon said. Eric McKinnley, Kansas City freshman, said when he first met Jermon and Alexander, he asked them what it was like here. “They told me the rules, " he said. ' " Don ' t be a knuckle head as far as being a role here was one of the first things Jermon said to me. " McKinnley said. " The black guys here are the only examples the people of Hays and western Kansas have of black people, so we should make good examples, " Jermon said. Jermon said when blacks get here, a label is automatically attached to them. " People here think blacks are at Fort Hays for one reason: to play a sport and not to go to school. They don’t come right out and say that but you feel it and you know that they ' re thinking it, " Jermon said. Alexander said he thinks he is obligated to explain these basic rules of getting along in Hays. He said if you stay on campus, these differ- ences aren ' t as notice- able as they are in the city of Hays. Alexander said its up to the individual to listen to his advice. Jermon said upperclassmen should take freshmen under their wing and help them out if they need it. McKinnley said this obligation and concern is like that of a big brother. " I respect these guys, " he said. There is a fine line between being a brother and a parent however, and Jermon and Alex- ander know this. They both said a person has to make their own de- cisions. " We just tell the guys like it is and then tell them to use their own judgement on things, " Alexander said. McKinnley has become known as room 324 ' s third roommate. Jermon described the third roommate they have as an " orphan type " and he believed there was no danger of getting any more roommates. “Most everyone comes here on a buddy system now. Braun has his two friends from Florida and Holmes has his friend Brad Buhler from Atwood, too. Eric had no one, " Jermon said. Room 324 is technically filled to capacity by two occupants. However, by proping their beds up on top of dressers and their desks between the dres- sers, a sofa will also fit into their room. by Beverly Strnad W Jermon James Jermon, Compton, Calil ,, senior, watches a baUgame on a slow Saturday (Photo by Brad Schraeder) Jermon and Homy Alexander, Ardmore, Old a,, junior, relax alter class with their favorite magazines.

But this All-American boy didn ' t grow up in America, Instead, he spent most of his life growing up in India. When Johnson, Hays sophomore, was 3 years old, his family moved from their New Hampshire home to Panchgani, India, a city 200 miles southeast of Bombay and that Johnson describes to be about the size of Hays. " When we moved to India, I think I was really into it. It ' s hard to remember at that age, " Johnson said, " It was just like everybody there was my brothers and sisters. " He said his family spent 13 years in India, and in that time spctn, Johnson and his family made friendships that still continue today. One of the friendships that Johnson made was with a classmate at New Era High School, a boarding school in Panchgani. That friend, Mehran Akhtarkhavari, India junior, attends the university now, some- thing that neither Johnson nor his friend thought would happen. Johnson said because he has known more international students, he has better relationships with them than he does with American students. For that reason in particular, Johnson joined the International Student Union at the university. " When I first joined, everyone welcome me into it. It was really great, " he said. " I wanted to join it last year, but I thought that only foreign students could join. I went to the adviser and asked her if it would be OK, and she said that anyone is welcome to join, whether they ' re foreign or not. " Johnson said school in America differs very much from school in India. " We went to a boarding school and we weren ' t allowed to leave campus. We literally lived our lives on campus, " he said, " The school was taught in English. Every state has a different language in India, so I had to learn the Kirk Johnson, Hays sophomore, was born in the United States, but grew up in india. (Photo by Robert Bunting, drawing by Dante Nickel) state language as well as the national language, " Johnson said. " A lot of my friends were Iranians, so I learned Persian, too, " he said. " When you grow up with them (the different languages), it ' s not hard to learn them at all -- they’re just like your mother tongue. " Johnson said the hardest language for him to learn was Hindu. Living in India for most of his life, Johnson was not used to seeing Ameri- cans, so his first im- pressions of them stick in his mind. " One summer when I was 6 years old, I re- member it was the first time we came back to the United States. When we got on the plane, there were a lot of Americans on board and I asked my dad, ' Are they sick or some- thing?’ I couldn ' t figure out why they were so pale. I wasn’t used to seeing white skin, " he said. " I guess I was just not used to it, growing up without it.

Bueschhoff, Russell sophomore, drives a mail XXJOC truck. " I have a contract with the U.S. Postal Service. This means I either drive or hire someone to drive for me and I’d rather drive, " she said.

" Since her route is Utica to Hutchinson, she has three residences; Utica, Hutchinson and Russell. " When I started school, I was in Russell and what other place would I want to attend,” she said. Bueschh off ' s favorite class is art, " Until I took this class I had been leaning more toward psychology. But I am enjoying the art class so much that I am con- sidering it as a major, " she said. She likes all kinds of music, but country western is her favorite, " There are all kinds of music in my tape box from Mozart to gospel. I even have some rock in my tape box, but I prefer country, " she said, Bueschhoff became interested in trucks when she was a little girl.

In October, the " reauthorization act " was implemented, and Guar- anteed Student Loan limits were actually raised, meaning the amount of money a student could possibly receive was increased. Then the rest of the ' ‘act " became applicable. As of January, students had to qualify for finanicial aid under a new definition of " independent. " In a nutshell, the new definition said that in order to be considered independent, and thus eligible for aid, a student must be 24 years old (period) . The only possible exceptions to the rigid definition are: if the student is a ward of the court; if the student is married and not claimed by parents in the previous year; if the student is single and not claimed by parents in previous two years; or if the student is an orphan. Because of the new definition. Director of Student Financial Aid, Karl Metzger expects to see a record number of orphans enrolling. The new definition, along with the raised lending limits should make it possible for fewer students to receive more money. The university had 850 independent students receiving financial aid in some form. Under the new definition, at least 300 of them will not qual- ify. The Financial Aid Of- fice tried to contact all these students to make them aware of the changes in time to make appeals. Though Metz- ger has discretionary Financial Aid Costigan, Jane Cousins, Sonya Cox, David Cramer, Rhonda Cramer, Suzanne Crawford, JoAnna Crawford, Karen Creamer, Connie Crees, Jack Crites, Kristi Crotinger, Annalee Croucher, Lisa Crowell, Patricia Cain, Marsha Cundiff, Juanita Cunningham, Steven Currier, Karen Cuthbertson, Teri Dague, Jennifer Dague, Murray Davis, Forrest Davis, Kevin Davis, Monty Davis, Sheri Davis, Yvonne Davisson, Kathleen Day, Danette Dean, David DeAragon, Renee Deges, Janel power, he has chosen not to make the decision whether or not a student will receive financial aid. Instead, he will make appeals on behalf of the students not qualifying under the new definition. While it may seem as if only bad news comes out of the financial aid office, there are a few good things happening too. A new computer system in the office will be eliminating time spent on paperwork. In the past it has taken an office employee nine pieces of paper and one half-hour per app- lication to process a Guaranteed Student Loan. by Danna Kaiser Changes in financial aid affected students in 1986 To be considered independent a student must be 24 years old.

Jerry Casper, Hays graduate student, con- ducted the workshop " It’s OK To Look Martha, They’re Just Improv- ising, " to fulfill a problems in commun- ication credit. " I felt that improv- isation was an area that was weak, or at least needed a push,” Casper said. Improvisation, or act- ing without a prepared script, is known especial- ly through high school forensics as an event called Improvised Duet Acting. Tve been interested in improvisation since high school, " he said. Casper said his work- shop had " a series of physical, vocal and men- tal exercises and games. They all relate to building a scene, character or character in that scene.” " There were exercises in dealing in mental crea- tivity and thinking in detail, " he said. The exercises focused on physical movement, concentration, observa- tion and relaxation. After each exercise, workshop participants discussed what they had done. " I asked people to remember and concen- trate on what they felt at the time. I think it ' s im- portant to have people talk about what they’ve done,” Casper said. " It ' s important to realize what you ' ve learned. " That realization, along with the other mental awareness are important in improvisation, Casper said. " As an actor, you realize how the tool that you have (the body) works,” he said.

One daughter, Dorothea Kelly, Hays junior, expects to graduate with her mo- ther in December 1987. Dunavan ' s oldest daughter is a registered nurse in obstetrics in Denver. With her two youngest children, aged 12 and 8, Dunavan relies heavily on her husband for support and help with housework. " There aren’t many men who’ll do all the laundry, and have dinner on the table every night when you come home, " she said. Dunavan travels back and forth from Agra al- most daily, but when her nursing schedule calls for it, she spends the night with a friend in Hays. Her special interest in obstetric nursing stems from 20 years of teaching prepared childbirth with her husband - not to mention her own exper- iences. Dunavan plans to pur- sue a masters degree in Colorado after leaving the university. She said even after six children and 10 grandchildren, " I just was not ready to quit. I knew I had more to -give.

More than 1 6 years ago, Erma Magie lived with her husband in Wooster Place while he attended the university. Back then, they were here tor his education. Now she is back, but this time it ' s for her edu- cation. Magie, a 38-year-old sociology student, now lives in Custer Hall, at least during the week. Her home is in Healy, about 90 miles from Hays. Magie leaves cam- pus, usually on Thurs- days, to spend long weekends with her husband and three child- ren. For a " semi-com- muting " student, Magie enjoys getting involved in campus life. She is a member of the Sociology Club and secretary of Boost Alcohol Consciousness Con- cerning the Health of University Students. Magie said she gets along well with the other students at the uni- versity. “I don ' t feel separated from the kids at all. I don ' t feel like their mom, and I don ' t try to be a mom to them either, " she said. The residents in Custer always try to include her in their activities, she added. Her family is very supportive, she said. " My youngest one misses his mom, " she said, " the middle one is glad to see me gone, and my daughter is very supportive of me going back to school. " Her husband has grown accustomed to being married to a colleg student, she said. " At Christmas, after the first semester, he wrote Christmas cards to his friends saying he lost his wife but won a college student, " Magie said with a smile. If things go according to plan, Magie should graduate in the spring of 1988. She plans to do work with Human Ser- vices specifically chem- ical dependency ser- vices. In the meantime, she ' ll keep dividing her time between home life and campus life.

" The photo exhibit start- ed Sept, 2 with an open- ing night reception with about 75 people in attendance. " It con- tinued through Sept. 13. " The opening was the hard part, " Tasset, Pratt senior, said. " When you have close to 75 people looking at your work while you are there, it ' s rather hard to keep from running off. " The exhibit consisted of work done previously in photography classes and photos from the previous summer. The theme centralized on each of the artists’ tech- niques and interests, " We stressed our in- dividual ideas and how important they were, " Tasset said. " The show blended quite well. " Each artist ' s unique style had a chctnce to come through in the show. " I chose to present my photographs with high contrast and strong, yet simple forms along with strong lines and bold tones, " Tasset said.

For Kelly Hull, an artist from Woodston, Home- coming had a special importance, Hull exhibited her collection of paintings at the university she graduated from 50 years ago. Hull has been doing an exhibition of her pain- tings at the university for the English workshop for the last six years, but this year, it meant even more to her. " This year, it ' s special to me, because it is the 50th anniversary of my graduation. This is ridiculous - me being a member of the Half Century Club, " Hull said. Hull ' s objective is to bring out the beauty in the world around us through her paintings, " What I really like about painting is to show something that is interesting, beautiful. " Hull said the trend in art nowadays is rather opposite to her view, " So much art now seems to be going toward social comment or the ugly, I like to make people feel better instead of making them feel worse, " Hull said. It took Hull 30 years until she decided to dedicate herself com- pletely to art. Born in North Platte, Neb., Hull ' s family moved to Phillipsburg where she grew up, She attended the uni- versity and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 1936. Her major was English, her minor, applied art. Though she liked art, she decided not to pursue it any further. " The ' 30s were not a good time for art. I gave up on art for economic reasons. I got married, raised kids and just forgot about it for 35 years, " Hull said. It was a big step for Hull to come back to the university in 1971 and pursue her master ' s in painting, and at the time she did not anticipate how much it would change her lifestyle. " Really, I can ' t tell you why I decided to come back. The pictures I did in ' 35, ' 36 were fading and Kelly Hull at a show displaying some the her work she has done over the years. Her art has accumulated over the 50 years she ' s been painting (Photo by Monty Davis) I just wanted to pick up on it. I have been painting ever since, " Hull said, She finished her master ' s in 1973, " I took my time and just kind of poodled along, " Hull said. One of the reasons why she decided to come back to the university was that her son was attending it at the time and that made it easier on her. " My son had been in the service and in Vietnam, and he got out in ' 68, He enrolled in school in ' 69. That had something to do with it, " Hull said, Still, Hull felt uncomfortable when she came back to the university. " I felt a little bit uneasy. At that time there was the attitude that older people, people over 40, were for the birds. There was such a resentment against the establishment and older people that I was afraid. I wondered how the kids would treat me,” Hull said. But she did not let these worries keep her from pursuing her goals. " Heck, I thought, I ' m not gonna let a bunch of kids scare me out, " Hull said. To her surprise, the students welcomed her in their midst. " The thing about it, when I came over, the kids were just wonderful. I call them kids; at my age everybody under 40 is a kid. They just accepted me as a person. I was kind of surprised about that. Actually, many of the undergraduate and graduate students became my friends, " Hull said, | p by Bettina Heinz Hull o aflche ' irTHays. As a Colby Community College transfer, Jennifer Adolph never felt sure about what major she would choose -- until now, Adolph, Colby junior, majors in art at the university. However, art has not always been her major. At CCC, Adolph took mostly general education courses because she was not sure what she want- ed to do, Upon transferring to the university in the fall of 1985, she decided to try her hand at fashion merchandising, but found she didn ' t like that at dll. Her second semester, she switched to business management and mar- keting, but neither of those majors seemed to interest her either. Finally after realizing she had a love for art, she decided to major in art. " I liked the challenge in the interior design program, " she said. Just because she wait- ed until her junior year to decide to major in art, did not mean she was in- experienced at it. Before college, when she attended Colby High School, she took every art class that was avail- able. During those four years, she won several awards including win- ning an award at a CCC art show for mixed-media. She also particiated in the annual " chalk-in " at CCC. The " chalk -in " involved several students putting a large chalk drawing on a cement wall approx- imately 10 ft. by 12 ft.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) Many students would agree that meeting peo- ple is one of the advan- tages of living in the resi- dence halls. " One good point about it is you meet a lot of peo- ple. It ' s fun. You know whafs going on on cam- pus, " Samantha Hous- man. Hanston freshman, said. Housman is a resident of McMindes Hall and is one of many people who have participated in a new housing department offer. If a resident was award- ed a departmental scho- larship, the housing de- partment matched that scholarship amount. This money was then deduct- ed from the resident ' s housing payments. Housman said this new offer helped her to decide to live in the hall. " It was probably an en- couragement, " she said. Living in a residence hall is similar to living in one big family, she said. " It’s not like we ' re sis- ters but it’s like we ' re all sisters, " she said. “There are fights and basic girl problems, " Two of the toughest things Housman found about living in a resi- dence hall were room- mates and bathrooms. " You have to adjust to living with other people. The adjustment of the roommate is the typical thing everyone has to go through. " Housman said she did not like the locations of the bathrooms. " I don ' t like the bath- rooms down the hall. " She went on to add that their location is a hassle. What makes living in the hall fun are the things the residents do together. Housman has been a- ble to experience these fun things in her first semester at McMindes. " We had a secret sister on our floor and we exchanged presents on our floor. Then we went to the Backdoor and revealed who our secret sister was. " Housman said she would probably recom- mend residence hall living to others. " I would (recommend it) especially if they were a freshman.

In turn, the crunch had its effect on the university’s students. Many students found it necessary to make chan- ges in their lifestyles while attending school. Some students had to work more and take fewer hours, others had to try to finish as quickly as possible in order to get into a better paying job sooner. During his freshman year, John Allen, Leb- anon senior, was eligible for government assist- ance in the form of work- study programs and grants. However, after Presi- dent Reagan ' s re-eval- uation of the program, Allen, like many other students, could no longer receive the assistance, even though his fi- nancial status, nor his parents ' , had changed. While Allen did apply for student loans each year, he found they were consistently late at en- rollment times, and he found himself relying on savings from summer jobs. Allen, now a senior in business finance, said he has worked summers at the grain elevator in Lebanon, but opted not to work during school terms, saying, Td like to finish in four years. " Another university stu- dent, Tony Kilian, Russell senior, said he and his parents have been hit particularly hard by the lower oil prices. Kilian, whose parents had helped put him through school in past years, was forced to turn to a bank for a school loan, as his parents’ past tax returns showed him A Economy Mai, Brian Makhdoom, Ahmad Malcolm, Angela Malir, Carol Mapes, Susie Margheim, Lance Martian, Deborah Martin, Carmen Martin, Corinna Martinez, Tracy Marston, Michelle Marwah, Raj an Mason, Lori Massey, Lorelei Massey, Michele Mathews, Randall Matteson, Mary Matulka, Alene Mayo, Carolyn McBride, Clarissia McCartney, Patricia McCartney, Chardy McClain, Kimberly McClure, Julie McConnaughy, Kyle McCrory, Shawn McCullough, Julie McDonald, Brenda McEachem, Judith McElwain, Michelle ineligible for government assistance . While Kilian had not usually worked during the school year, he found it necessary to keep two summer jobs during the summer, and said this will be the first year he will need to look for a part- time job during school. Though the times have gotten tough, it appears that most- .students will make any adjustments necessary to acheive their goals.

In that, Troy Poage is not different from any other student. But who else misses snow-wall building and ice-fishing? Poage is from Nome, Alaska, Though it might seem surprising that the junior majoring in math- ematics chose Hays out of all places, for Poage it was a natural choice. " My brother, Todd, was already here, and I have relatives here. I wasn ' t really wanting to come down here, but I decided to try it for a year, " Poage said. But Poage didn ' t leave after the first year. A positive fraternity experience made him stay. " When I was initiated in Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity, I had so much fun that I said I’m going to try it again, " Poage said, As Poage has spent the last 17 years in Alaska, the move to Hays brought along adjustments to the climate. " It is a lot warmer here, and I finally got to drink draft beer. But I miss all the outdoor activities, like snow- wall building, ice-fishing, salmon- fishing, and camping, " Poage said. Poage has not decided yet what profession he will go into, but he is considering education. Usually, Poage goes home every summer to work at the Alaska Gold Company. “We thaw the ground, the permofrost with hot water, so they can make it through the ground to get the gold. It pays a lot, but it is cold. It got 70 degrees twice last summer, that was the maximum, " Poage said. by Bettina Heinz Troy Poage t Nome AJaslra unior, is an active participant in intramural sports and enjoys lilting weights in his tree time.

Lynn and Luck, how- ever, are the only two totally blind students at the university. " We are the pioneers of the blind students out here 11 Lynn said. Both Lynn and Luck have not always been without sight. Lynn could see through high school, where he was active in football and wrestling. When Lynn was 19, his sight, which had been failing slowly, was gone completely, Luck had her sight only up until the second grade. After that, she, too, became totally sight- less. Luck relies on her 2 - year-old labrador re- triever, Oka, to aid in her mobility, whereas Lynn uses a white cane to help in getting around because of " a difference of personal preference and cost, " Luck said, Lynn and Luck met in Topeka at the Kansas Rehabilitation Center for the Blind in June 1984, where they became very close. They read in braille, which Luck is much bet- ter at, while Lynn con- tends he is better at working on their com- puter. by Jon Arbogast MifchoJJ Lynn, Belleville senior , and Cheryl Luck , Dallas sophomore , were the only two blind students at the university , Luck has become more mobile since IJJca became a pari at her life .

" To this, the Hawaiian- Samoctn communication student answers, " I like it over here. People are nice-friendly, " Taamilo also said there seemed to be a real absence of predjudice in this area. Taamilo, originally from Hawaii, was a football recruit while attending a junior college in Cali- fornia, where he has some family, When making the decision concerning which juco or college to play football for, Taamilo decided on attending the university without even visiting the campus - a decision he hasn ' t regretted since. One aspect that in- fluenced his decision was the university ' s cen- tral location, since he was interested in travel- ing in the United States, Taamilo has been play- ing football at the uni- versity since his arrival in January 1985. While Taamilo enjoys life in Hays, there have been adjustments to make. For instance, he is accustomed to eating things like raw fish, a lot of chicken and pork and rarely any red meat. May- be the most distinct dif- ference is his taste for rice -- rice with every- thing, even a McDonalds hamburger , In Hawaii , McDonald ' s has rice on the menu right up there with the french fries ar hash browns. Taamilo continues to practice his religion by reciting Samoan prayers while seated on a mat and wearing the tra- ditional " lava-lava. " The lava-lava is like a wrap- around Hawaiian print sheet that many natives wear at home or on the beaches.

" The people are really friendly, 1 ' The Bangkok, Thailand graduate student, has attended the university for three years. During those three years, she has been working for her master ' s degree in com- munication, After attending college in Bangkok, she decided to move the United States to further her education. That is when she chose Hays. " At first, my mom didn ' t want me to go to school in the United States, " Soonthornsaratoon said. “But then, she changed her mind. " Actually, it was my mom who chose Fort Hays for me, " she said. She said her mother knows some doctors in Russell who she trusts would take care of her if she needed anything. She said that is the pri- mary reason her mother thought Hays would be the best place for her to attend college. Another reason for Soonthornsaratoon ' s de- cision to attend school in Hays was because of her nealth. " (In Thailand,) I got a cold easily and some- times I have problems with breathing, " she said. However, because Hays does not have a lot of pollution, her health problems have been improving.

However, that is exactly the way Laurie Lindsay, Winfield senior, spent her summer vacation. Lindsay spent five weeks roughing it in the great outdoors. She slept in a tent on the ground, cooked and ate over a Coleman stove, and went to the bathroom along with the wildlife. " With 19 guys around, it was hard to distinguish what was wildlife and what wasn ' t, " she said. Lindsay is getting her B.S. in geology. She spent part of her summer in the moun- tains of Colorado and Utah mapping geologic formations and struc- tures, listening to lec- tures, doing homework and handing in reports on the various types of rock and specific fea- tures of each study area. It snowed the first night she spent in her tent and it rained steadily for 24 hours another day. Lindsay said she knows it rained that long because she spent the whole night writing a report to hand in the next morn- ing. This five-week camp out is known by geology students as field camp and is worth six credit hours. Ken Neuhauser, the sponsor of the field camp and Lindsay ' s adviser. talked with Lindsay a few times about going to field camp as the only female. " There just aren’t that many females who want to be geologists, " he said. But Neuhauser also said that Lindsay knew the circumstances. " All four years geology students go on field trips so they know who is in their class, " he said. " Everybody ' s equal at field camp, " Neuhauser said. " You either do your job or you don ' t. " " I really surprised myself that I could keep up with the guys on hikes, " Lindsay said. She was also surprised that she got along as well as she did. " Men can get pretty strange when they ' re away from civilization, " she said, Jli by Beverly Strnad Laurie Lindsay, Winfield senior , spent five weeks during the summer of 198$ camping with 29 men for six credit hours- The class is known by the geology students as field camp.

Gere Holloway, Lincoln senior, and Brad Pred- more, Hays senior, both are trained in an unusual skill - parachuting, Predmore, a history major, and Holloway, a communication major, are in Reserve Officers ' Training Corps, an elect- ive minor that requires three credit hours and several field trips per se- mester. But to extend their mil- itary experience and broaden their horizons, Predmore and Holloway attended airborne train- ing at Ft. Benning, Ga. Predmore attended dur- ing the summer of ' 86 and Holloway during the summer of ' 85. Airborne training, a three-week course in parachuting, involves learning how to do combat-oriented military jumps and requires five successful jumps to com- plete the course, " Combat jumps are different than parachut- ing for fun, " Predmore said, " Military jumping is done from 12,000 feet on a static line only, no free- falling. We have about 40 extra pounds of equip- ment on, including a rifle strapped to your side. " Predmore " had a lot of fun " at airborne training school, but Holloway had some complications. " I got hurt on the first and fourth jumps, " Holloway said, " so I was unable to finish the course at that time (summer ' 85). I went back in January of ' 86 and completed the course. " " Airborne training is a very good thing to have on your resume, " Pred- more said. Airborne school is three weeks and consists of the following: ground week (leajning the correct landing pro- cedures); tower week Seirer, Jill Sekavec, Lane Setina, James Seyferth, Jack Seyler, Melinda Shackelford, Lisa Shahan, Vernon Sheley, Lora Shewey, Leslie Shimp, Daniel Shipley, Steven Shippy, Charlotte Short, Randal Shrader, Brad Shull, Tamara Shumaker Herbie Siefkes, Julie Simmons , Jana Simon, Bradley Simon, Cheri Simon, Douglas Singleton, Lora Sisson, Scott Sitts, Chrissy Skelton, Jason Slaughter, Don Slaughter, Randy Slansky, Timothy Slous, Scott Small, Debra Parachuting tached to a tower where the jumpers can learn how to control the para- chute); and jump week (where " you put your knees to the breeze, " ) Predmore said. There were about 600 trainees in Predmore ' s company, with approxi- mately 45 of them being female. “It was so hot the time I was there that we weren ' t allowed to run, or we weren ' t asked to drop for push-ups, " said Pred- more. " But even with the heat and the schedule, we didn ' t lose many from our company, " Predmore ad- ded. " Our day started at 4 a.m. and lasted until 4 or 5 p.m. Then you either were on duty or free to do what you wanted. " Both Predmore and Hol- loway want to continue their army careers in active duty after they finish college. Their training in air- borne manuevers gives them more military ex- perience to pursue their career. by Leigh Winston Pamcfiufing for fun and cambaf jumping are two different things. Military jumping is done from 12,000 feet on a static line only, no free falling. They also have about 40 extra pounds of equipment including a rifle. Airborne school takes three weeks.

Kevin Rich, Windsor, Colo. , sophomore, is following the life of a rodeo clown. Rich ' s career was boosted when he received the honor of Colorado Bullfighter of the Year from the Colorado State Rodeo Association Labor Day weekend. Bullfighting is another name for a rodeo clown. Rich ' s job is to make the bull turn and spin in bullriding competitions so cowboys can get better rides and better scores, Clowns also help the cowboy in case he is in danger from the bull. This also proves risky for the clown. " I ' ve been hit in the air a fow times. One bull hit me, flipped me up in the air and then stomped on me, " Rich said. He has also been gored by bulls, hit in the head and cracked three ribs while Clowning. Rich said he hopes to attend a clown school to help him become a better clown, The Kansas schbol is taught by professional clowns. “You learn from the pros on how to fight bulls. " One professional bull- fighter in particular that Rich looks up to is Rex Dunn. “He makes it look so easy when it ' s so hard, " Rich said. Crowd attention is not what Rich is after. " The best thing to happen is when we get thanks from a bullrider for saving his life. That ' s better than anything. " Rich ' s future plans are to become a professional clown.

Most college students spend the summer months working to pay for their next year of school. Some students find jobs that are not as typical as the majority of their peers. Robert Clark, Hays sophomore, is one of these atypical college students . Clark drives a truck for North American. " It is what I did before coming to school, " he said. " Driving a moving van gives me the opportunity to travel around the country and the chance to make good money. " Clark has traveled, through the course of his work, to all of the 48 contiguous states. The Tulsa, Okla., native usually travels within a 1,500-mile range of the place he is moving someone to. " I did this for about five years before coming back to school, " Clark said. " I wasn ' t the traditional truck driver - people didn ' t expect that. " It was while he was on the road that Clark discovered Hays and the university. " I saw a sign on Inter- state 70 and decided to look the university over. I thought it was a beautiful campus, " he said. Clark, a finance major, thinks his years of moving people will be beneficial in a career. " It taught me how to get along with people person to person, " he said, " I had to sell people on me, learn how to work with people and to be independent, " Clark said. " I see myself as a loner, but I like to be with people. I can adapt to being alone, " he said. " On the road I couldn’t rely on anyone but myself.

And so it is with Amy Rodriguez, Elkhart sophomore, who gained statewide -- if not nationwide - attention when she fell 10 feet from a three-tier pyramid during cheerleading practice on Feb. 1, 1985. " There have been some good things that have happened, " Rodriguez, who suffered permanent paralysis due to the acci- dent, said. From the beginning, Rodriguez ' s faith in the Lord has remained stead- fast, Often, she has spok- en of her belief in miracles and the pos- sibility that she herself could be blessed with such a phenomenon. " I feel God has singled me out, " she said. Tm not doing anything excep- tional and yet I ' ve re- ceived so much pub- licity. " Immediately following hor accident, Rodriguez was the recipient of thousands of dollars raised through an auc- tion, a radio-thon and countless donations, both in I-Iays and her hometown of Elkhart. While recovering in Wichita’s Wesley Medi- cal Center, stacks of mail were delivered to her room daily card a special telephone line was set up to accomodate the large number of calls from people offering encouragement and sup port. Many of these peo- ple Rodriguez had never even met. Like everyone else, Rodriguez admits to feeling down from time to time, especially when her friends do not stop to think before saying something " dumb, " However, what really gets her down and scares her the most is falling or needing help sometime when no one is around to offer it. She is aware of the fact that sho could lie After ailing from a three -tier pyramid in (he spring of i 985, former university cheerleader Amy Rodriguez, Elkhart sophomore, has returned to school.

(Photo by Don King) there for hours before someone might find her. " I ' m still afraid of falling and breaking my hip which would mean months of hospitali- zation. " she said. Rodriguez said she feels the same inside and not restricted at all. She said that is primarily due to people being so helpful. " Most people don ' t know what or how to help, or if I even want help, " she said. " That had made me more bold because now I have to ask for help. " Although adjusting to her paralysis was like " starting all over, " Rod- riguez remains optimistic because of all the op- tions and discoveries she foresees even in the next five years. Nonetheless, Rodri- guez appears and says she is still confident in herself and believes that where there is a will, there is a way. " I ' m so glad I ' m back, " she said. by Lyn Brands Rodriguez Softball, jogging and how socialization deter- mines a person ' s sexual preference have a common denominator, That denominator is Connie Brachtenbach. The Stratton, Colo., senior was a member of the now defunct softball team, she is an avid jogger and how socialization determines a person ' s sexual prefer- ence is her research project for her major, sociology. Brachtenbach said she has mixed emotions about the softball program being cut. “I am diappointed because women ' s sports and the lesser sports get the short end of the stick, " she said. " Any time you lose a sport or a department you take away from the university. This certainly is not going to help the university any with enrollment, " she said. " I am glad that it was us rather than the women ' s basketball or volleyball, " she said. Jogging is one of her favorite pasttimes. " I am an avid jogger, " Bractenbach said. " I have run in several 10 K ' s including the Gold Rush Run and the Hadley Stampede. " She also participated in the university ' s supple- mental induction pro- gram as an SI instructor. " I didn ' t have a big number of students only 25, " she said. " Of these 25, only 10 came consistently. " Brachtenbach believes the program does help the students who participate. “The students who came did better on tests - anywhere from 10 to 30 points better, " she said. She said she received positive evaluations of the program even from students who could not attend. " One student will pay for the whole program, " she said. " Part of the goal of the program is to help them to be better students. " Brachtenbach pre- sented her research paper in Chicago at the Midwest Sociology Con- ference in April. " I will also use the paper as my basis for my master ' s thesis and dissertation, " she said. Brachtenbach will continue her education at Arizona State where she plans to get her emphasis in social change and deviance. She plans to teach at the university level and to do research. " My ultimate goal is to publish a book on my research topic, " she said. Brachtenbach has enjoyed her four years at the university. " College has just been the most expanding intellectual experience, " she said. " I have never been disappointed in coming here. " " I have just loved school, " she said. " I liked all my instructors. " I can’t thank them enough for what I have become. They opened up a whole new world for me. " Rose Amhold. associate professor of sociology, is one of those instructors. " Rose has always been there to give advice and is a great help as a person -- a unique individual. " she said. " Part of this is because she has the time to be that way.” Brachtenbach took an appreticeship under Amhold during her junior year. " I wee an apprentice for sociological dev- iance, " she said. “1 had taken the class the year before. " In the course of this apprenticeship, she helped Amhold put the syllabus together, did the course outline, made up a questionctire. attended every class period, lec- tured over one section and made up the test for that section. She plans to teach at the university level and do research. " I see myself staying single and teaching in a large university, Brach- tenbach said. She would like to be the kind of teacher that she had as a student.

The ceramic ashtray on her bed is crammed with stubs of Marlboro Lights. A newly lit cigarette is burning. Her legs cros- sed, she sits on the large waterbed, bent over a sketch. From time to time, she looks up and moves her bangs back or adjusts her glasses. For friends of Lisa Duncan, this is a com- mon sight . The Lakin senior, who majors in art education, spends a lot of time painting or drawing in her basement room in Custer Hall. Duncan ' s room reflects her personality, The walls are covered with pieces of art. A light pink watercolor painting hangs on the closet door, a piece of wood with dangling leather strings is put up above her dresser. Her favorite, a lithograph called Mo- ment of Enchantment, depicts a meeting of fairies on a tree. Duncan looks up from her sketch, tips back the brown glasses that frame her tiny face. ' Tm really not a very exciting person, ' 1 she says with a shy smile. Duncan is not the type of artist to put on an eccentric air or lead an out-of-the-ordinary life- style. Still, her art is with her anywhere she goes, be it on the Custer Hall sweatshirts she designed or on the prints of Moments of Enchant- ment that she produced herself m a printing class and gave to her Custer friends. A rather shy and reserved person, Duncan sees art as her means of expressing her moods to the world around her, " I paint what I feel. I don ' t always try to give a meaning. I draw or paint what mood Tm in. I think it is a relaxing thing to do, " Duncan said, Duncan ' s favorite medium is watercolor because she is com- fortable with it, she said. " I’ve done it a lot, I am able to control it better than oil. I can make it work for me, " she said. Her environment sti- mulates Duncan and gives her ideas what to depict in her art. " I get my ideas from books I read, music I hear, seeing other people ' s works, or just from people talking, ' ' she said. Julie Harvey, Garden City graduate student, has known Duncan for five years. Both have been living in Custer for the last two years and become close friends. Harvey said she enjoys the variety of motifs in Duncan ' s art. " Her art is really good, extremely mature. She varies the types of concepts she draws or paints. She is very good at a variety of types of art besides drawing and Drawing and sketching is how Lisa Duncan t Lakin senior, spends most of her time. Duncan is an art education major , (Photo by Robert Bunting ) painting. She has done a lot of crafts, worked with wood and leather. She doesn ' t just stick to one thing, " Harvey said. For Duncan, the determining exposure to art came when she spent three months in Cloud- croft, N.M., at an art workshop right after graduation from Lakin High School. " The Ulysses Art Association had spon- sored me the year before to attend the workshop in New Mexico for two weeks, and during that time I got to know the teacher, So I called her up and asked if she needed a helper for the summer, and she did, " Duncan said. During the three months she spent in Cloudcroft, Duncan assisted the workshop instructor, Jan Herring, in organizing the classes, enrolled in all of the classes herself and taught a drawing class. That summer was more than just an in- structional experience for Duncan, she said. " I grew up a little. I started doing more things independently, both in art and in general. I learned to be less tight and more abstract by working under her (Herring), " Duncan said. When she returned from New Mexico, Duncan enrolled at Garden City Community V Duncan - College. For the first two years, Duncan was a full-time student. Mainly in- terested in art, she took many art classes but put her emphasis on getting the general education requirements out of the way. Her third year, she took two classes only and worked selling waterbeds the rest of the time. " I wasn ' t sure where I wanted to go, and I was out of money, " Duncan said. Some of her friends from Garden City had gone on to Fort Hays State, and when Duncan was able to receive funding, she decided to attend FHSU also. When she came to Hays in the summer of 1985, she majored in graphic design, but later on changed to art edu- cation. ‘The whole time I wasn’t sure which I really wanted to do for a career, I liked graphic design, and I still do, but I finally decided that it wasn ' t for me, " Duncan said. Duncan said she thinks that graphic design is restrictive in that the artist loses the freedom to depict what he feels like. " Graphic design in restricted by the limitations it has. You have to do what the client wants, not what you want to do. It is also stressful and not a home- oriented career, " she said. “Graphic design is very limited to what will catch the viewer. You have to do what the client wants you to do rather than putting yourself into it. " Chaiwat Thumsujarit, associate professor of art, has taught Duncan for two years in graphic Lisa Duncan, Laktn senior, gives change to Michael Pomes, Milwaukee graduate student, at the Custer Hall desk ; (Photo by Robert Bunting) design and art courses. " She is really good at illustrations and water- color. She has improved a lot since she came here, you could say she is more open now, " Thumsujarit said. Now that Duncan changed her major to art education, she says she is confident about teaching art in western Kansas. " This area is probably culturally deprived, but it ' s just going to be a challenge. I want to be successful at teaching. I plan to stay in Kansas. I ' d like to introduce more art history into the class- room than what I had. Td also like to get my Master ' s in painting and then teach painting at a four-year university, " Duncan said. Teaching art seems such a good choice to Duncan because it will keep her motivated in her own art, she said. " I think I ' ll have my stimulation and lots of opportunity because Til be around things that will keep me hyped up about it, " she said. Artists often display bizarre and eccentric qualities. Not so Duncan, " I don ' t fit the mold at all. Except in my personal experiences - I do go against a lot what I ' ve been raised on. But as far as dressing weird or so, I don ' t. I don ' t try to stick out like a sore thumb, " she said. She said she doesn ' t mind eccentricity in other artists. " I think it ' s OK. I think it’s exciting. Sometimes I wish I could be as bizarre, because that’s what they are. Artists are the egg-breakers of society; they keep us on our toes. I wish I could be a little more off the wall. Maybe ni be one day. " by Bettina Heinz Duncan For many college stud- ents, going to school means leaving old friends and family behind, But for Annie and David Sprenkel, the latter does not apply. Their mother, Dorothy, Hill City sopho- more, attends classes along with them. " I love it, " Annie Spren- kel, Hill City senior, said about her mother going to school with her, " We ' re pretty close. When I was in high school, we got to be pretty good friends. Now we ' ve made it a point that every Thursday after- noon we have lunch together. " David Sprenkel, Hill City graduate student, said he never sees his mother on campus be- cause all of his classes axe in the Wiest Hall annex. " I hardly ever get to see her, so I don ' t really even feel like I ' m going to school with her, " David said. " We’re all really proud of her, though, for coming back to school. " Annie said she has only one complaint about her mother going back to school. “She doesn ' t have as much time to listen to our (hers and David ' s) problems about school as she used to. She has her own classes to think about, " Annie said. " At first, it made me feel kind of left out, but I even- tually got used to it. " Neither Annie nor David have any classes with their mother, but they all find time to help each other with their homework. " David even helped me get t hrough algebra last summer, " Dorothy said. Originally, Dorothy had attended college for a little more than a year before she got married. After that, she never returned until now. Annie said it wasn ' t easy for her mother to return to school. " It was hard for her to get started. She was really apprehensive about get- ting started back in, " she said. " It ' s really easy for her to get stressed out about things because she’s taking a lot of classes and has to drive back and forth from Hill City to Hays everyday for an hour. " Dorothy said she starts out from Hill City at 7 a.m, every morning but said that does not make her wish she lived in Hays. ' Td get homesick too easily, " she said. " I ' ve spent all of my life in Hill City. " Because there are a lot of commuters from Hill City attending the university, Dorothy is able to ride with a car pool to school. Dorothy, who ' s major- ing in English history, said she came back to school so she would be able to get a job teaching at a school in or near Hill City. " I hope that Til be teaching by the fall of ' 88, " she said. " I need to get employed so I can do what I want to do with the rest of life, " Dorothy said. Dorothy said she does not receive any special treatment from in- structors simply be- cause she is a non- traditioncd student. Besides classes, Doro- thy is active in the Hill City community and has been for many years, " Since I ' ve started school. I’ve had to quit everything but choir and piano lessons. I give five piano lessons a week,” she said, Although school and her community work keeps her busy, she said she really likes going back to school. " I enjoy it, " she said. " Annie’s been a big help, I ' ve really gotten to know a lot of people through Annie. I run into kids that she knows a lot of times. " Dorothy said her hus- band, Dwayne, thinks it’s great for her to go back to school. She said he man- ages pretty well while she ' s away. " He makes his own sandwiches and pops his own popcorn, " she said. Annie said her father is proud of his wife for going back to school. “At first. Dad didn’t say one word or the other about whether he liked it or not that Mom was going back to school. Now Tve found out that he goes to work and brags about how good Mom ' s doing in school. She ' s probably going to get all A ' s this semester, " Annie said. " We all kind of tease her from time to time for going back, but not much. Really we ' re just proud of her for doing it, " she said. by Brad Vacura " We all kind of tease her from time to time for going back, but not much. Really we ' re just proud of her for doing it.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) Sprenkels — To many people, cus- todial work does not sound very prestigious, But prestige was never what Tom Martin really wanted out of life. In fact, he worked hard trying to avoid it, Martin, chief of cus- todial services, said the prestige that he could have had when he grad- uated as a philosophy major here was not as important as actually working at a job and seeing it through. " Prestige doesn ' t really mean anything to me, " he said. Tm just not a status seeker. " Martin was promoted from campus custodial supervisor to chief of custodial services in Jan- uary ofl985 to replace A1 Boucher, who retired in December of 1984. He credits his pro- motion to just " being in the right place at the right time. " I was already in the No. 2 spot and when A1 retired, I was asked if I wanted to move up. If I didn ' t want it, I didn’t have to take it, " he said. Martin compares the department of phil- osophy to the custodial department because its hierarchy is much the same. " There are not a lot of similarities there, but there are some. Struc- turally, you ' re talking a- bout a hierarchy. You ' ve got your deans, etc., ' 1 he said. " We ' ve got the same type of structure. If you are talking prestige and such, there ' s no com- parison which has more prestige. But keep in mind the reason I’m over here is that prestige doesn ' t impress me a whole lot. " A native of Oklahoma, Martin first went to college at the University of Oklahoma but he did not graduate from there. Instead, he enlisted in the army and served from 1966-69. " I served in Vietnam for a year and spent the rest of the time in Frankfurt, Germany as a clerk typist, " he said, After serving in the war, Martin returned to OU and found that the overall atmosphere had changed dramatically. " I didn ' t like the chan- ges they made on the campus, " he said, " There were a lot of new build- ings put up that didn ' t have windows. There were these huge towers put up in places where I used to play Frisbee. It didn ' t even look like a campus anymore. " Because his sister was attending school here, Martin decided to take at look at the campus at Hays. " Now this was a cam- pus. It had one thing really going for it and that was that it was small. " He said he liked the fact that this school was smaller than OU because he could talk with the instructors on a one-on-one basis. During Martin ' s school- ing at both OU and here, he had changed his ma- jor four times. He said by doing that he could get the feel of what he really wanted to do, " A type of smorgasbord thing had something to do with it. I think everybody goes through that. " You don ' t really know what you want to do until you try it, " he said. While he was attend- ing school at the uni- versity, he worked as a janitor in Albertson Hall. That is when he first be- came interested in cus- todial-type work. When Martin grad- uated in May of 1973 with a bachelor ' s degree in philosophy, he had totalled up more than 200 hours with above average scores, Martin said he is still interested in philosophy even though he decided not to make that his career choice. " The only thing I have to do with philosophy right now is that I attend the department ' s ses- sions where each month they have someone pre- sent a paper or a topic on campus, " he said. When Martin was first hired as a custodian for the university, he worked in the HPER building and the adjoining Gross Mem- orial Coliseum. To this day he does not regret the move he made. " I really enjoy this type of work, " he said. " I like the people in this type of work, too.

A physical education ma- jor, she characterizes herself as " hyperactive with low blood pressure, " and it seems to be an accurate description. Born in Excelsior Springs, Mo., in 1956, Roberts spent most of her life in Albuquerque, N.M., and Lake Elsinore, Calif. While she was attending Lake Elsinore Union High School, she started working at a gas station, " Actually, I ended up managing the gas station, " Roberts said. Her vitality and upbeat desire to learn something new lead her to a variety of jobs. Her senior year she started working for the State of California De- partment of Parks and Recreation patrolling Lake Perris on a boat. When she moved to San Diego, she worked for a sporting goods company and as a film editor for XETV, an international televison station based in Tijuana, Mexico. The fact that she didn ' t have any televison experience didn ' t inti- midate her when she applied for the job. " I had a friend tell me that there was a job opening. Not knowing anything about film editing, I had to go to a public library. I checked out two books on film editing, read the glos- saries, was interviewed for the job and got it, " Roberts said. But after a year, she began to feel restless again. She quit her job and joined the Air Force. Returning from basic training, Roberts found out that the Air Force could not give her the fiel d she had applied for. She returned to San Diego, and the TV station she had worked for hired her back as traffic editor. One and a half years later, Roberts moved to Arkansas where she worked for KFSM-TV in Fayetteville, Ark., as an accounting executive. Then she decided to give the militery another try and joined the Army reserves. After com- pletion of her training, she moved back to Fayetteville. “I had to find a job, " she said, " and I did something I said I ' d never do -- wcritressing. " Three months after she started wcntressing at the Hilton Hotel, she was named assistant food and beverage director. A year later, she decided she needed to go to school. " I re alize d I would be better off as an officer than as an enlisted person. I wanted to get my commission, " Roberts said. Still working, she Renee Roberts, Fayetteville, Ark,, senior, helps at the Kansas Special Olympics as a reteree. Roberts said she e njo yed the volun te er work. (Photo by Robert Bunting) started attending the University of Arkansas. But then the food and beverage director at the Hilton quit, and she had to work as acting food and beverage director. " I was going to school full-time, I was working 50 to 60 hours per week, supervising more than 120 people, and I was in the Reserves and in ROTC. I was not a happy camper. Eventually, I got real sick and had to quit, " Roberts said On July 5, 1985, she got her commission as se- cond lieutenant. Making another radical change in her life, Ro- berts said she looked for an opportunity not to take responsibility when she moved to Kansas. " I was burned out, I decided to be a student for the first time really, " she said. The reason she chose FHSU was an opening for an officer ' s position. Capt. Allen Schmidt, company commander, is Roberts ' supervisor at the 388th MEDSOM unit in Hays. " She ' s doing an outstanding job. She has got a lot of initiative and motivation, She is not at all afraid of getting involved in whatever it takes. She puts in a lot of extra, non- paid time, also, " Schmidt said. Roberts sees her desire for change positively. " The more I travel, the more people I meet, the more I get educated, the more I advance in personal growth, I like change. I guess the right word is ' seeking. ' I ' m still looking for something that I haven ' t found yet, " she said. by Bettina Heinz Roberts Adams, Paul Ali, Abbas Arbogast, Gary Amhold, Rose Ashmore, Alton Atkins, Alison Baker, Meg Bannister, Marcia Barger, Angela Bartholomew, Leland Barnett, Jeffery Barton, Donald Barton, Sharon Basgall, Janice Baxter, Mary Baxter, Ralph Beardslee, Carroll Bittel, Susan Bloss, Don Boyer, Jeffery Bradley, Raydell Britten, Frederick Broeckelman, Rojene Brower, Garry Brown, Jane Brown, Robert Brungardt, Curtis Buchholz, Barbara Butterfield, Wayne Byrne, Marie Calais, Gerald Campbell, Keith Campbell, Marc Caplan, Louis Chalender, Bob Claflin, Bill Claflin, Martha Cody, Dorothy Cole, Karen Conyac, Constance Costigan, James Cox, Gerry Curl.

Today, her library consists of more than 8,000 books. She started collecting books as a member of the Reading Circle Selection book club for people who are interested in children ' s literature. Harsh was on a committee to select books for schools, so she received many children ' s books in the mail for her to review. " Although I got the books free, I ended up paying for them with my time -- 1,000 hours of reading, " Harsh said. Fourteen summers ago. Harsh started having a one-week-long children’s literature course for fun or credit. She would invite children ' s authors to speak and ended up expanding her library through her contacts in the world of children ' s literature . Today, Harsh teaches several children ' s liter- ature classes at the uni- versity. Currently, she is working with university officials, to try to find a permanent space for her collection of books, " I will eventually turn the collection over to the school and many of my students use them now for storytelling and tutor- ing, " she said. The university is con- sidering a couple of pla- ces to keep the books and Harsh has already started putting the books on computer through the Dewey Decimal System for easy access for her students. Part of her collection is now housed in second floor Rarick Hall in the education department.

Robert Holtfreter, professor of business administration, is a Grant Thorton distinguished professor. Grant Thorton is one of the top certified public accountant firms in the world, Holtfreter said. Holtfreter is not required by Thorton to do anything for them, " The only obligation here is to be a good teacher, " he said. " I was very thrilled to get a position with Grant Thorton and FHSU. " Holtfreter is one of 70 distinguished professors nationwide. He was chosen from three candidates in Kansas. Thorton developed this program because it wanted to establish senior level courses in accounting at colleges and universities across the country, Holtfreter said, Developing these courses has helped the program. " We stand at the top of the state " in our accounting program, Holtfreter said. " We ' re ranked pretty high, " In addition to being a distinguished professor, Holtfreter finds time to edit (review) articles in professional magazines. He edits articles in " The Accounting Review. " This, he said, helps not only himself but the university. When he edits an article, his name and the university ' s name is put on the book. " It gets FHSU ' s name out there. " Before Holtfreter came here in 1983, he worked in Chicago at Arthur Anderson and Co. Because of this experience working at a large CPA firm, Holtfreter believes he can give students the advantage of knowing what it is like in the real world, " It ' s very difficult out there. " To help his students prepare for the difficulty of the business world, Holtfreter patterns his tests and exams to the actual CPA exams, Holtfreter began his career at a young age, He had his own business. " I started working in fourth grade planting bulbs for 25 cents. " By the time he was in the sixth grade, Holtfreter had decided he wanted to be an accountant, " I really got interested in ac counting. I love the lifestyle.

Before coming to the university, McNeil taught at both the Uni- versity of North Dakota and Emporia State Uni- versity. McNeil came here in 1957 for the specific purpose of beginning a men ' s varsity gymnastic program, He not only began the program, but he also started the gymnastic program for the NAIA. He was hired as the head gymnastics coach and assistant football coach and eventually became an assistant professor of physical education followed by being a professor of health, physical educa- tion and recreation. McNeil served as a member and past president of the NAIA Gymnastic ' Committee . He also served on the United States Olympic Committee for eight years. On March 4, 1978, McNeil became a member of the NAIA Gymnastics Hall of Fame. In May of 1983 a scholarship fund was established in his honor.

(Photo by Robert Bunting ) Cheryl Hoffstetter Towns is not new to Hays. However, her position at the university was newly established this year because of a special grant involving post- secondary education accessibilities for handi- capped students. In simpler terms, this program is designed to help handicapped students make an easy, smooth transition from high school to college . Towns, who received her M,A. in English from the university in 1984, is the coordinator counse- lor for the Access Grant. Ninia Bickford Smith, Ph.D. in special educa- tion, is project director for the grant. Smith laid the ground work for the project last year by writing the Access Grant case study. Now Towns has the task of implementing the program and making it a success. During the past year, she has given three presentations at con- ferences, including the university ' s Fall English Workshop, the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Develop- ment and the Midwest Writing Centers Associa- tion Conference " Most importantly, I ' m here to make a difference, for the students and the institutions that serve them, " Towns said. Not only will Towns be striving for better accessibility at the university, but for all learning institutions in northwest Kansas, and, eventually, all of western Kansas. At secondary institu- tions, the grant staff will contact high schools to identify those handi- capped students most likely to benefit from a post-secondary educa- tion. They will travel to designated high schools and conduct awareness sessions of " career night " types of workshops, geared for handicapped students and their parents, teachers and counselors, regarding the students ' options and opportunities in post- secondary education. At post-secondary in- stitutions (colleges and vocational- technical schools), in-service pre- sentations for staff de- velopment and technical assistance will be made available by the Access Grant, as post-secondary institutions seek to meet the philosophical and le- gal obligations of recruit- ing and serving their handicapped students. In addition, the university will host a one-day seminar on post- secondary education for the handicapped, to be attended by post- secondary school per- sonnel. by Leigh Winston Towns Youmans, Raymond Zakrzewski, Richard Zeman, Melvin Zenger, Weldon Zook, Herbert Vogel, Nancy Votaw, Charles Votaw, Reta Warner, Jim Warren, Garry Watt, Willis Webb, Tom Werth, Mildred Werth, Richard Wesselowski, Jean Wilhelm, Charles Willard, Dean Wilson, Raymond Maurice iiwuu, Stephen Wyatt, Helen Youmans, Marian Cheryl Towns has given fhre« presentations at conferences like the university ' s Fall English Workshop during the past year .

Garlets instructs classes in the field of radiological technology, which is more commonly known as the field of X-ray technology. Garlets said he became a teacher in an unusual manner, He said he was a technician at a hospital in Colorado Springs, Co lo. The hospital had a training program for students and the instructor became ill and was unable to continue teaching. The administration of the hospital asked him to take over the teaching responsibilities . " I never wanted to teach, " he said. When he was told he would have the job, Garlets almost quit. " I threatened to resign. " Eventually Garlets grew to like teaching and wanted to continue in his new job. " After I had taught a couple of weeks, I hoped the instructor couldn ' t come back, " he said, He did have trouble teaching and asked for the students’ assistance and not give him any negative feedback. " I suffered stage fright terribly, " and he said the students helped him gain confidence as a teacher. After this experience, Garlets went to graduate school so he would be able to continue teaching. He said grad, school helped him in his teaching career. " It reinforced that I was doing something right. " He explained this meant he learned that a lot of the techniques he had picked up on the job as a technician were correct Gariets and he was not giving students incorrect information. Garlets had an X-ray collection on display at Sternberg Museum last fall. " The collection has become my hobby. They literally came to me over the years. " In the future, Garlets plans to donate his collection to the museum. ' " " It ' s obvious they appreciate the items and more people can see and appreciate them.

(Photo by Robert Bunting Hughen In 1958, a young Mid- westerner straight out of high school took his first plunge into manhood, right into the Air Force. He would later retire from the Air Force as an officer, spend active duty in Vietnam, become a predecessor to the " Star Wars " plan, hold a Ph.D. in philosophy and teach at various institutes across the country. A man of multiple talents and whose life has shaped into vast twists and turns, Richard Hughen, assistant pro- fessor of philosophy. speaks fondly of his days in the armed forces. He now leads a less complex life as a philosophy instructor at the university, Hughen ' s reason for joining the Air Force was not an unusual one. He wanted to continue his education, but his par- ents simply could not af- ford to send him to college. Hughen did very well in high school, receiving above-average marks. For that reason, he decided that it would be beneficial to go on to college. The Air Force gave Hughen the opportunity to go to college that he might not received other- wise. Because of his high test scores, he was able to enter into electrical engineering, which he became interested in in high school. He then took 60 hours of college credit, which qualified him for an Air Force scholarship, Because he went to night school, the two year course took him twice as long to complete. While stationed in Los Angeles, Hughen be- came involved with the ' ' Star Wars " plan. In 1970, working for the Department of Defense, Hughen traveled to South Vietnam and dem- onstrated devices that could pick up footfalls or sense movement. “Vietnam was a decrepit, rat infested place, " Hughen said. " Anyone traveling in a war zone sees pretty shocking things. You don ' t think you ' re going to get killed, I guess its a sense of immortality - all we know is life, " he said. At an Army post, Hughen and a dozen other men were setting up censor devices a- Hughen ' s memorabilia are vivid reminders of his Air Force time. (Photo by Robert Bunting) round a railroad track bin. The enemy had just finished an attack and was coming over the bin when Hughen and his group met up with them, suprising both parties. Nobody in Hughen ' s group was killed, but there were about 15 men killed on the other side. “They were sort of hitting us, mowing the grass in front of us,“ he said. Hughen retired from the Air Force in 1978 as a captain. He spent 1 0 years as an officer during his 20 year term. " Looking back I sure don ' t regret joining the Air Force. It ' s been an interesting 20 years, " he said. The armed forces have been a great part of Hughen ' s life. Education has taken up the latter. Hughen has received a B.S. in Electrical En- gineering at the Uni- versity of Missouri, a masters in philosophy at the University of South- ern California and a doctorcrte in philosophy at the University of Ar- kansas. " Teaching ph ilosophy is my greatest joy, " he said. " I really love phil- osophy. It gives one the opportunity to think things out.

After winning the season opener against Lincoln University, the Tigers gained rank, from 13th in the nation to 11th in the NAIA Division I Top 20 poll. After rolling over the Lincoln University Blue Tigers, Head Coach John Vincent said, " Last year, we had no pressure on us because all we hacl to do was get better. This year, we have to be at least as good as we were last year, and that is tough. " As the season progressed, the Tigers concluded with a 4-6 record overall.

It’s tough to be an athletic trainer. " You’re usually behind the scenes, doing the little things that make everything run smoothly and you have to take that pride and believe that what you’re doing is helping the overall program. " Jeff Chambers, head athletic trainer, said. There are 1 0 students working full-time and three students who are out for sports so they can only work part time. Cham- bers ' graduate assistant, Rick King, is already a certified athletic trainer, " He ' s certified which has been a big, big plus to our program, " Chambers said. The students have to pick up the aspect of taping as soon, as possible. " It ' s almost like an assembly line process. You get them up on the table, tape them, and get the next one on the table. It ' s that quick, " Chambers said. The students are also responsible for the cleanliness and sanitation ot the training room. With 400 athletes running in and out of the training room, it has to be cleaned every night. “ A lot of times I get the credit for what ' s happening with the athletic training, but 1 could not run the training room without the students. They are the ones who run it, they really are the ones who ran the training room, the student athletic trainers, " Chambers said. by Mildy Hines, Robert Campbell Football yy Greg Woodward goes through the anger of defeat as the Northwestern Oklahoma State Rangers run over the Tigers in the last minutes of the game . {Photo by Monty Davis ) differ receiving a pass, Kip Stewart, Ontario, Calif., senior, runs the ball down field.

Even before the season started, injuries were affecting the team, Free safety Kelly Barnard began with a bruised heel, while linebacker Barry Quinlin started with an elbow injury. Eight games into the season slotback Eric Busen- bark reinjured his right knee, caused by improper healing, and because of the physical limitations of his knee, he also injured his left achilles and groin. Another factor, the weather, was more than overpowering. It ruined almost every home game with its cold, rain, sleet, mud and snow. Usually tem- peratures were in the single digits, and the winds usually blew so strongly that it brought wind-chill factors that many times were below zero. But ending the season on a good note, three players gained All-District recognition, Randy Knox, wide receiver, led the university in receiving with 52 catches for 665 yards and two touchdowns. Les Miller, defensive lineman, brought 43 unassisted tackles and 22 assists, which ranked him as third leading defender, According to Mike DeBord, Tiger offensive coordinator, Howard Hood, offensive lineman, was responsible for many of the 3,866 yards that the university scored during the season.

They went on to take on National Collegiate Athletics Association teams in California and Colorado. The Lady Tigers were able to hold their own at the La Verne Invitational in California. They placed seventh out of 16 teams. The Lady Tigers were the only non-NCAA team represented. Before taking on any more NCAA teams, the Ladies came home and boosted their record by winning the Pepsi Classic Invitational.

After Bush coached at Southern California, he went to work for the United States at a Sports Development Center. When they began talking and looking for a team, Wise ' s name came up as one of the choices for a coach, Bush called and asked her about the job, and if she wo uld want to take on the task of picking her own team or taking a team they picked for her. " I picked taking my own team because a lot of times, especially in volleyball, the West Coast and Southern states get a lot of the chances to do things, and we get overlooked, 11 Wise said. The team had enough people to have an A team and a B team. The Tahitians took their Olympic team, most of which had played together for 13 years, and split it in half. After the two teams played their games, the Tahitian team decided to travel with the Lady Tigers from island to island. The islands they toured were Tahiti, Little Tahiti. Raiatea, and Moorea. Raiatea was the last island they played on, and while they were there, the French-Polynesian games were going on. These games were like a mini- Olympics, where all the French-Polynesian islands, around 300 of them, sent their representatives to. The two teams played as exhibitions for the games. The 20 girls who went came from seven different colleges and universities around the state and from California, and were selected from the conference and district, most of them being All- District, or All- Conference players. Of the 20 girls, three were university alumnae, and the other six were girls who are presently on the volleyball team. Wise took one girl from Kansas Newman, Kearney State, California State at Riverside, and Barton County Community College. From Washburn University came two alumnae and two present teammates, and from Bethel came three teammates. In Tahiti volleyball is the No, 2 sport behind soccer, One evening, the teams were scheduled to play, and following their games, an American basketball team was to play a match. When the teams finished their regular matches, the crowd cheered for more. They just kept playing until the crowd got tired of it. When they were finished the men ' s basketball team went out on the floor and all but about 50 people, of a full-house crowd, stayed to watch the basketball game. " It was a really good experience, we learned a lot about the people and their culture, " Wise said. The teams stayed at the places that the Tahitian people would normally stay at, while right around the corner were luxurious American hotels. Everyone traveled around Tahiti in old-time, wooden buses, with plastic windows, and tire exhaust bellowed out. " A lot of times the team and anyone else riding the bus, would have to get out and push it to start it. You paid 90 pacific francs no matter where you went, whether it was just a couple of blocks, or if it was around the entire island, as long as you didn ' t get off, you could ride all day, " Wise said. The fact that no one in Tahiti spoke any English except the team really kept the team close together and edged out a lot of possibilities of being split up. Wise said. " Traveling together for 11 days really could have started a lot of battles, with different personalities and all, " Wise said. Although the Tahitian team traveling with them spoke no English, the two teams communicated through actions, " Compared to our program, their volleyball team is really strong. If you compare their Olympic team to our Olympic team, it ' s not. But if our team had time to practice together more as a group, we probably would have split with them, " Wise said. The Lady Tigers had some of the top people in their conference and district, and the level of competition they played against was high, which helped everyone on both teams. The team played eight matches, four for each group, and of tire eight, they won two. The Ladies got together in Hays three days before they were scheduled to leave and practiced. “Even though they are all good players, it’s tough, especially on a team sport, to just throw a group together that aren ' t used to playing together, but they did exceptionally well, " Wise said, The Lady Tigers played volleyball, and physically got ready to go. " Just coming together and playing peaked everyone ' s interest and made them more determined to play better, " Wise said. Lori Collier Tahiti X It was a season of continous come- backs for the women ' s basketball team. Despite lack of ex- perience, the young team never threw the towel and barely missed the District 10 playoffs. " We showed a lot of people we could play with the better teams. We showed them up by finishing the season in style. Even though we were a young team in experience, we beat two ranked teams, " Cindy Baker, Hays senior, said. The two teams ranked in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Top 20 the Lady Tigers beat were Marymount College and Missouri Southern State College, Joplin, Mo. Marymount College had just broken into the NAIA Top 20 at the 19th slot when the Lady Tigers beat them at Gross Memorial Coliseum 60-56, Three games later, the women went on to conquer Missouri Southern, Missouri Southern had been the replacement for Marymount College in the 19th slot. The Lady Tigers beat the Lady Lions by 14 points. " Beating Marymount College, a ranked team, was great, " Kelly Wilhelm, Hays senior, said. Beating two teams that are ranked in the NAIA Top 20 seemed to boost the team ' s confidence. The Lady Tigers won six of the next 10 games. John Klein had his work cut out for his first year as head coach for women ' s basketball. Klein was not in on the recruiting of the team, and there was only one returning starter. " Coach did a good job, especially since the team didn’t know each other, " Chris Biser, Plain, Wis., freshman, said. " Coach did a really good job of coming in and taking over and making us a defensive team. " Jodi Miller, Stockton freshman, said. Staci Derstein, Hays senior, was the only returning starter from last year ' s team. " It was pretty challenging with only one returning starter, but not a stumbling block, " Klein said. Derstein had played basketball with some of her new teammates at a junior college and in some informal pick-up basketball games. “It wasn’t a big jump playing with the new girls, just different talent in different positions, " Derstein said Klein started his team of 16 players on a new program. “The program is more intense, it has to be if you want to win, " Derstein said, Biser proved to be a key player. In the last week of the season, she scored a total of 78 points in three games. For that week she was named the (Continued on Page 194) f or John Klein, women ' s basketball head coach , the Hist year was nof easy, but rewarding, (Photo by Robert Bunting) T earn captain Staci Derstein, MuUinvilie senior, tries to block a pass to an opponent (Photo by Robert Bunting) C Women’s Basketball a ah ft Fw Ml O indy Baker, Grinnell senior ; attacks Pittsburg State ' s No. 25 while other team members change their positions .

She was the team high rebounder in 18 games. " It was a great honor, especially as a freshman. There are so many upperclassmen in the conference who are good players, " Biser said. Penny Fischer, Seward junior, was another key player. Fischer was the team high scorer for 11 games. She topped Biser by only one game. An improvement could be seen in the team after Christmas break. " First semester we were shaky. We didn ' t know how to control the tempo. Second semester we knew what was expected of us to win, " Jodi Springer, Menasha, Wis., freshman, said. The more noticeable improvement of the team as a whole started toward the end of the season. " They began to improve more toward the end of the January. The new girls were more knowledgable. Chris Biser just kept getting better; everyone got better, " Klein said. " The girls worked as a team, we all worked to win, " Jill Doefler, Hays junior, said. The Lady Tigers barely missed going to the District 10 playoffs. The NALA passed a new rule that was enacted this year. According to the rule, all teams must have at least a .500 winning percentage to participate in the playoff system. The Lady Tigers were only two games short of this mark. Their season record of 14 wins and 18 losses gave them a winning percentage of .438. (Continued on Page 197) Chris Biser, Plain, Wis., freshman, takes the ball down the court.

The rungs in the ladder of success are composed of difficulties. -Anonymous It is doubtful that the author of that small paragraph ever even heard of the university ' s Tiger team. But it is even more doubtful that a more apt description of the Tigers ' basketball season could be found anywhere. Heading into the season, the Tigers and head coach Bill Morse had hoped to return to the pinnacle of college basketball in the NAIA. And after the first six games of the season, the Tigers looked for all the world like a team that would win its third national title in four years. The Tigers overcame pre- season adversity when standout forward Cedric Williams, Arlington, Texas, junior, was suspended from the squad due to problems he had encountered with law enforcement officials in his home state of Texas. That preseason adversity was compounded when George Robinson, Chicago freshman, left the team and returned home. Although he was only a freshman, Robinson had been expected to be a starter at the ever-important point guard spot. Losing two of his five starters before the season left Morse in a rather undesirable position. But with superstars Mark Harris, Flint, Mich,, junior and Eddie Pope, Hattiesburg, Miss., junior, leading the way, the Tigers started the season with an impressive 6-0 mark and maintained their preseason No. 2 ranking in the NAIA. An overtime loss at the hands of arch-rival Kearney State College, Neb., ended the Tigers early season win streak, and in the process, marked the beginning of a slump that saw FHSU plummet from the NAIA ' s Top 20. As strange as it may seem, it took five straight losses in an international tournament in Haarlem, the Netherlands, for the Tigers to get their season turned around, During that tournament, Pope was permanently suspended from the team due to disciplinary problems. At the time, he was the Tigers leading scorer and rebounder, and losing him seemed to cast an even darker shadow on a season that was already being termed by many as disappointing. The Tigers, however, had other ideas, The team regrouped during the early part of second semester play, and behind the strong play of Harris and surprise performers Mike Miller, Stockton, sophomore, and Thomas Hardnett, Sheffield, Ala., junior quickly made it clear to all interested parties that the Tigers were once again a team to be reckoned with. " Our season was definitely one with a lot of peaks and valleys, Troy Applegate, Hays senior, said. " We started the year great, but then we went (Continued on page 200) M ark Harris, Beaverton, Or©., junior t goes in tor an uncontested slam dunk, Harris ' s career high score is 38 . (Photo by Robert Bunting) Men ' s basketball (Continued from page 199) everybody pulled together and realized that we could do it with what we had on the team at that time, and I think we had a successful season from that point on. " Especially during the District 10 playoffs, where the Tigers reached the championship game for the fifth consecutive year. Unfortunately, they lost that game, 63-6 1 , to the eventual national champion Washburn University Ichabods, With the win in the championship game, the Ichabods had accomplished what no other team had been able to do in the five years Morse had been at the helm of the Tigers: defeat the university three times in the course of one season. And according to Applegate, who was one of only two seniors on the 23-9 team (Tyrone Jackson of East St. Louis, 111., was the other), seeing Washburn win the national helped solidify the Tigers ' belief that they were indeed a quality team when the season drew to a close. " They had a really good team, " Applegate said, " and they did really well in Kansas City at the national tournament. Anybody from the District 1 0 that makes it to Kansas City is going to do well, and I really think that if we could have gotten by Washburn in the (Continued on page 202) -rtnfhony Williams, Kansas City t Mo., junior, attemps to drivo past a W ' asfcbarn player In District 10 Finals.

And it was a turnover by Williams near the end of the game against Washburn that left the Tigers with no chance to win the district title match. Like many, Williams said he was looking forward to the chance to make up for that turnover next year, and he said that he and his returning teammates will most definitely remember the controversy- stirred season and take steps to avoid a recurrence. " We ' re a young team and we ' ll have another chance next year, " Williams said. " Getting this far was a hell of an accomplishment for this team. We overcame a lot of adversity. To be soclose,,.

At first glance, the wo- men ' s tennis season may appear only as a disappointment, but according to Coach Jim Chambers, win- ning isn ' t everything. Although the tennis squad struggled through the fall season without winning a meet, and Chambers admits being disappointed by what shows up in the win-loss column, the first-year net coach said the record does not tell the entire story. " Looking at the won-loss record, it would appear a disappointing season, " Cham- bers said, " but one of the things that seemed a strong point to me is that in the teams we lost to in duals, we scored higher than them at the Emporia State Invitational. We ended up getting third at that meet behind Baker and Washburn, probably the two best teams in the district, " Chambers said. He said the third place team finish at the Emporia State meet highlighted his team ' s season, not only because his squad earned third overall, but mainly because the way the entire team played during that particular meet. " We had a couple of pretty high finishes in both singles and doubles, and even the girls that didn ' t make it past the first or second rounds, played well, " Chambers said. " Consistently, that was probably the best our team played as a whole. " Besides the Emporia State meet. Chambers said he was also pleased with his team ' s performance in a dual against Washburn, despite the Tigerette netters dropping all nine matches and the meet. “When we played Washburn in a dual, we were, for the most part, really competitive. " Chambers said. " We lost all nine matches, but we improved to the point where we were doing the things we had to do to score points. " According to Chambers, the actual outcome is not as important as the style of playing. " Our girls worked hard and they did what they could to win the match. They were playing smart, and that ' s the key. You ' re not always going to win, but they were doing what they knew they had to do to win. It just so happens that we did not win that meet, but they did compete well, " Chambers said. Although unable to knotch any victories in dual competition, Chambers said the team maintained a type of unity throughout the season. " It really was a team effort. They worked well together, and the best thing about it was they were all so close as far as ability-wise. They did work together, and they pushed each other to improve. I think that ' s a real advantage, " Chambers said. Although some people may view the season as a dis- appointment, Chambers said he hopes the players look at it differently. “I would hope they don ' t look at it as a disappointing season, " Chambers said. ' We were a young team, and I think they were beginning to expect more out of themselves, and I think that ' s a good thing. " According to Chambers, attitude is a key factor in the team ' s development. “They wanted to improve and get better, and I was really Rhonda Bronson, Great Bend junior, waits to return a volley that was returned by her opponent. (Photo by Photo Lab) impressed with their attitudes toward the end of the year. They were starting to play well and compete well, and do what they could do to win, " Chambers said. Because of wanting to win, but not always being able to, Rhonda Bronson, Great Bend junior, said she has mixed views about the season. " it was disappointing, be- cause we wanted to win so badly but didn ' t. But we learned a lot and had a lot of fun; there ' s no doubt about that, " Bronson said, Although suffering through a season with disappointment because of the lack of winning. Chambers said he was more than satisfied with the effort his team produced during the season. " They played up 10 their ability and that ' s all you can ask for; for them to be the best that they can be, " Chambers said. by Robert Campbell Women ' s Tennis Susan Mc€tueen, Liberal sopho- more , keeps an eye on the bail as she sfarfs her folio w-fhro ugh, LPhofo by Photo LabJ Susan McQ-ueen, Liberal sopho- more, returns a volley.

Despite stress and inju- ries, the team managed to obtain the No. 5 spot in the nation and return with two national champions and four All- Americans for the first time in the university ' s wrestling history. For the eight members of the wrestling team, participation in the NAIA National Tournament in Wheeling, W.Va., was definitely the highlight of their season. The university team began the season as the No. 1 -ranked squad in the NAIA and although it returned from nationals at the No. 5 spot, the wrestling team had reason to be satisfied. They also brought back two national champions from the tournament. Billy Johnson, Hays sophomore, had been an All- America performer the year before, He won the national title in the 118-pound division. Marc Hull, Andover sophomore, is also a previous All- America performer. He won the national title in the 134- pound division, According to head coach Wayne Petterson, the duo of Johnson and Hull couldn ' t have wrestled much better as they took their respective national titles. " After Billy got by his second round match, " Petterson said, " he pretty much took care of everybody else pretty easily. He wrestled a good, smart match and basically did the same thing in the finals, " " Marc threw a scare into us a couple of times because he was getting a lead and letting up on people. But when it came right down to it, Marc did what he had to do to win the national championship.” Wayne Simons, Marienthal junior, 167-pound division, was not expected to be seeded in the top three of his division, because of two previous losses to highly- touted wrestlers from Chadron State. Neb., and Central State University, Edmond, Okla. At the tournament, Simons suffered through both a slow start and injury problems, He ended up gaining eighth place at the tourney and getting All- America honors, At the beginning of the season, the wrestling team was ranked No. 1 in the nation, which put a lot of pressure on the teams and the coach. “The ranking was based on the points returning from the previous year. I ' d have to say that the first semester, the first weeks in January, we were wrestling with a pretty heavy load on our shoulders being ranked so high, " Petterson (Continued on page 208) Wrestling 118 Billy Johnson 33-7-0 177 OPEN 126 Greg Pfannenstiel 21-17-1 190 Kevin Back 22-14-0 134 Marc Hull 25-2-0 HWT Wayne Lienemann 8-18-0 142 Kenny O ' Donnell 5-4-1 142 Parrish Blanding 6-9-0 150 Shaun Smith 15-15-1 142 Eddie Harrington 3-3-0 158 Greg Dixon 5-22-0 190 Erik Guy 9-9-0 167 Wayne Simons 31-10-0 HWT Gaven Ludlow 3-4-0 Wrestling A qualifier for the national Tourn- ament in Wheeling , W.

" Not only the wrestlers, but myself as coach also felt that We tended to show that, too. " Experience was there on the team, but injuries tended to get in the way. " We were experienced with three All-Americans returning and five national qualifiers. We possibly could have done better, but during the season we realized that some key factors influenced our season, like injuries, " Petterson said, Eddie Harrington, Derby senior, was the most obvious victim of injury, " Eddie was a legitimate All- America candidate, but we lost him for the season when he disloc ated his elbow, That was a definite blow, " Petterson said. Despite the pressure of being ranked No. 1 and many injuries, the wrestling team did succeed to set new records, It was the first time for the university ' s wrestling team to bring back two national champions, and it was also the first time that the team brought back four All- Americans. Although the outstanding wrestlers of the season obviously were Hull and Johnson, much of the credit has to go to the three seniors on the team, Petterson said, " A lot of the credit has to go to Wayne Simons, Shaun Smith, and Eddie Harrington. Simons has been a two-time All-American, and he came out of high school as an average wrestler. During his four years here, he has developed into a strong, competitive college wrestler, " Petterson said. College wrestling might have its positive consequences for the seniors ' careers, Petterson said. " Harrington ' s career was finished earlier than expected, because of his injury. That was unfortunate. Whatever he’s doing, he ' ll be successful at it, He is very self-disciplined and has a good work ethic. " The same is true of Shaun who has developed a very good work ethic, " Peterson said. For next year, the wrestling team will rely more than ever on recruiting to break through to the No. 1 spot, " We ' re tired of knocking on the door; we ought to kick it down, That ' s the position we got ourselves in in placing in the Top 5 in the past two years, " Petterson said. Though two national champions, Hull and Johnson, All-America Greg Pfannenstiel and three other wrestlers who qualified for nationals will return, some blank spots will have to be filled immediately. " We lost three seniors, so that’s where we will have to fill immediately. Also, I feel we need to fill four other weight classes, " Petterson said. by Bettina Heine JP ositioned behind his opponent, Greg Pfannenstiel, Hays sophomore, wrestles in the 126 -pound weight class, (Photo by Brad Norton) Wrestling Head wrestling coach since fall 1982, Wayne Petterson talks to Greg Dixon t Marysville sophomore , {Photo by Brad Notion) A three time qualilier for the NATA Natio n ai Tournament Wayne Simons, Leoti senior t tries to pin from behind.

I III III 1 1 H-H H f Although rodeoing often takes a back seat to basketball and foot- ball, it is actually one of the most exciting and unique sports around. Anyone of the loyal rodeo fans can tell you that it ' s one of the most exciting to watch. If you don ' t like a certain event it isn ' t a long wait for the next event. " Each event, and each time yon do that event is unique, " Garry Brower, rodeo coach, said, " because of the un- predictability of the animals. Some of the stock have been around long enough to know what is going to happen next in an event. It doesn ' t take a whole lot to throw off the timing of the contestant. " Brower has coached the rodeo team for the past six years. He insists preparing mentally before this individual event is important. " Because rodeoing is such an individualized sport, the psych part, or what the contestant goes through just before each event, is just as important, if not more so, than anything else, " Brower said, " because the contestant depends so much on himself. " Some preparations start the night before the rodeo begins. " To start the rodeo off right, " Dennis Anderson, Silver Lake freshman, said " the cowboys have a jackpot the night before. Everyone throws in five bucks for each event they ' re entered in. Then we ride, and the winner takes all. " Another person on the team is Kevin Rich, Windsor, Colo., sophomore, who was named bullfighter of the year for 1986 by the Colorado State Rodeo Lisa Ainoldy, Tipton senior, rides in a barrel racing contest at the university ' s 22nd annual rodeo, (Photo by Photo Lab) Association. Rich takes his job seriously. " The first priority is the protection of the cowboy. I try to keep the bull spinning around in circles so the cowboy has enough time to get away from the animal. Each year beginning the second week of practice, the Rodeo Club starts practicing four days a week every week. All this work has helped the men ' s team to be ranked 12th and the women ' s team 8th in the region. As professional rodeoers are allowed to compete at the college level, the team has been at a disadvantage this year. The team doesn ' t have professionals, which means it has to work even harder for itswins at rodeos and for its placement in the region. The April 23 and 24 rodeo was the university ' s 22nd annual rodeo. " This was just a tremendous rodeo, " Brower said. " We had good crowds, great weather and great stock. All of those things make for a great rodeo. We had over 450 entries overall, so I would say that this was just as big as any rodeo we have ever had before if not bigger, " by Robert Campbell ■MAf I • - J i, m mm jt snKi .Darren Watson, SubJeffe unJor, heads v hiio healer Joe Thompson goes for fhe steer’s hind tegs.

BAK was split into two routes with approximately 250 bikers riding each route. Both routes started in Kanorado and ended in Leavenworth, with the Grasshopper route stopping nights in Colby, Lenora, Stockton, Beloit, Clcry Center, Onaga and Oskaloosa. The Butterfly route stayed nights in Colby, Hill City, Natoma, Lincoln, Ab ilene, St. Mary ' s and Oskaloosa, BAK was started in 1975 by Larry and Norma Christie of Wichita, Seventy-six riders participated in the first event, and with the exception of 1977, when biking across Kansas was not scheduled, tire number of participants has steadily increased. Although the trip consists mainly of Kansas natives, bikers from all over the country have taken part in the annual event. Bikers from 1 5 different states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebras- ka, New Mexico, New York, Wisconsin, Texas and Kansas took part in this year ' s trip. " That ' s one tiling that makes it so much fun, " Ginther said. " You meet so many different people from all over, and you make such good friends along the way. " Like Ginther, Darla Rous, international student adviser, and her husband, Laryl, made a lot of close friends. " You ' re together for an entire week, riding the same route and sleeping on gym floors with hundreds of other people. You can ' t help but become close friends with a lot of tho people, " Rous said. Each of the seven days of the trip consists of an average of 70 miles, and although the main purpose of the event is to ride across Kansas, there is much more to do than simply pedal all day, " I usually took all defy, stop- ping in each little town, sitting on the street corners, having a malt and visiting with the people, " Rous said. " That ' s the whole concept of the trip, to take your time, meet the people and see what there is to see. " , Although Ginther described the trip as a " fun week, " she explained there are prepa- rations to be made before one decides to take off on the trip. " You don ' t just jump on your bicycle and decide to go. You work your way up to 20, 30 and 60 mile rides, " Ginther said. " I also run quite a bit, and I feel like that helps me a lot, " she added. Rous said she trained extensively for the trip, " We (she and Laryl) put in a lot of long miles on the bikes, get- ting used to sitting on a bi- cycle that long,” Rous said. Because they trained for the event, both Rous and Ginther said they didn ' t experience any problems with the riding, but Rous said she did have a little trouble with her bike. Tve had a blowout and a flat in my two years, " Rous said, " but my husband is very good with bicycles, and you get to learn your bike pretty well and know if something isn ' t functioning right. " In case of trouble, vans, called " sags, " follow the bikers on the trip. The vans are equipped with repair material for the riders. Besides carrying repair equipment, the sags are also supplied with fruit and refreshments if the bikers want something between stops. Besides sags, BAK also takes other measures to insure the safety of the bikers. Although not required, helmets and gloves are strongly recom- mended, and no more than two bikers are allowed to ride side by side. The organizers also provide check-in and check-out sheets at every stop to know how many riders are still out on the road and if anyone may be in need of help. " It ' s a very well organized event, " Rous said. " It ' s really a cheap vacation, How else can you go and see ail of Kansas for $55, " Ginther said. bv Robert Campbell in B ers Cross Kansas 1 | | | | t tii : ZZZZ1 -L.. _L III 1 ' 1 1 1 ITHTH No, it wasn ' t the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls- not even Disney World-- but for Marilyn Ginther, Hays, Biking Across Kan- sas " was a vacation.

In the men ' s 1,500-meter run Esparza placed first; Tom Welker, Woods ton freshman, second; Tim Welker, Woods- ton freshman, third; Mike Filley, Hays sophomore, fourth; and Mike Hobbs, Kansas City sophomore, sixth. The teams also placed first at the Sterling Invitational, but dropped their placings at the Central States Intercollegiate Conference Championships at Wayne, Neb., on May 2. The men placed second and the women placed fifth. At the District 10 finals at Sterling May 9 the Tigers competed against a total of 13 teams. Both teams came away with third place wins. " The guys competed pretty well, " Joe Fisher, head track coach, said. The men ' s team had a number of top place finishers, Don Carter, Emporia senior, placed first in both the long jump and triple jump. He also placed third in the high jump. Broxterman captured first place in the high jump, while Esparza captured first in the the 800 -meter run, Schmidt also came out with a first place finish in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles. " I think our men ' s team really came through.” Fisher said. “The women ' s team really didn’t fair that well. They just didn ' t come through, " Fisher said. Moore was the key factor for the women’s third place finish. Moore placed in nine out of the 10 events she entered. She also placed in the top three in seven of her events. Moore also captured second place in both the 100-meter high hurdles and the triple jump, and third in the javelin, shot put, and discus. She placed fourth in the long jump and fifth in the 400-meter low hurdles.

This is Fisher ' s description of an indoor track meet. " When they get to running they are so into what they are doing, you can be standing on the side shouting at them, they don’t even realize it; they focus themselves inside and go for it , " Fisher said. The men ' s and women ' s indoor track teams have proved that they can do this. " We had a pretty good indoor season, " Fisher said. " It was a strong year with a positive start. " The runners were able to find their personal event to concentrate on. The closeness of the indoor track meet helps the runners get excited for their events. They can watch their teammates while they are warming up or waiting for their event. The excitement helped the runners in the District 10 meet. The teams were able to place at least three people in the top three or four in each event at the District 10 meet. It was Carter ' s fourth year of participation in the NAIA meets. His experience paid off, Carter placed fourth in the high jump, receiving his third All-American title. " He has been real consistent in his jumping, " Fisher, said. Some of the events were stronger than others at the NAIA meet, " We won 19 out of 37 events, " Fisher said. There were seven runners who qualified to go to the National Association of Inter- collegiate Athletics meet. The meet was held in Kansas City on Feb. 27 and 28, The District 10 meet was held in GMC. There were seven indoor track teams that competed to qualify members for the NAIA Championships. Don Carter, Emporia senior, qualified at the District 10 meet in the long and high jump. He is also part of the 2- mile relay team. A 7-foot high jump by Carter at the Kansas State Indcor was his personal best this year. The only female runner to qualify for the NAIA meet was Debbie Moore, Oakley senior. In Moore ' s second year of qualifing for the NAIA meet, she competed in the 60-yccrd hurdles, triple and long jump, Moore was not able to place high enough at the NAIA meet to receive All-American. " There were some good jumpers, the long jump was tough. " Carter said. Another high jump qualifier for NAIA was Steve Broxterman, Baileyville junior. Broxterman was not able to place high enough to receive All-American. H i; LIU A 14-year -old record in the men ' s 1000-meter race was broken by Ruben Esparza, Santa Anna, Calif., junior. Esparza broke the record at the Kansas State University indoor meet, The old record was 2:12.9 set in 1973, Esparza ' s time was 2: 1 2.44, Esparza qualified for the NAIA Championships in the 1,000-meter race. He received All-American by placing fourth in the 1,000-meter race. The 2-mile relay team of Esparza; Rick Walker, Englewood junior; Mike Filley, Tonganoxie junior; and Tom Welker, Woodston soph- omore, also competed at the NAIA meet. The relay team was not able to please, kYS STATE " The competition was very, very difficult, Fisher said. " There were lots of kids that are Olympians from other countries.

Qualifying for the the men’s hurdles for the NAIA meet was Jon Hazelhorst, Hays freshman. At the District 10 meet he won the 60-yard high hurdles and the 176-yard hurdles. " Hazelhorst missed being an AU-American by a couple thousandths of a second, " Fisher said. He had placed fourth in his heet, but another runner had placed third in his heet with the almost identical time. Hazelhorst was not chosen to compete in the finals because the other runner had finished higher in his heet.

But, for gymnastic mentors Richard and Tawnita Augustine, a fourth place showing at nationals started as a team goal. Beginning the season, " our goal was to place fourth or higher in the national championships, " Tawnita said, " and that we did. 1 ’ Although the expectations were present at the outset, the ingredients to fulfill that order were not pure. The Tigerette gymnasts opened the season with only three returnees from a 1985-86 season marred by injuries, plus one junior college trans- fer and a red shirted sopho- more. The remaining seven individuals of the 12-member squad were all freshmen. . " We really had a young squad this year, and they all came from different back- grounds and different coach- ing styles, " Augustine said. Not only did the team face the task of overcoming the obstacle of inexperience, but once again, mid-season injuries took their toll on the squads hope of success, However, ' unlike last season when the Tigerettes struggled to an 11th place showing at the NAIA national cham- pionships, this year ' s team regrouped to end the season with a fourth place showing at the elite tournament in which they played host. " We went through a lot of rough periods and had a lot of injuries, " Augustine said, " but we were able to rally the last couple of weeks to finish up fourth in the nation. " Without the injuries, Augustine said the squad could have possibly finished the season even higher than fourth at nationals. " I’m really curious that if we hadn ' t had the problems we had this year, whether or not we would have been stronger than to finish fourth in the nation, " Augustine said, Despite the adversity and the idea of each girl competing individually for points, Augustine said the reason for the team ' s success proved to be each girl ' s ability to work together. " I really feel the whole team contributed all year long, " Augustine said. " They really pulled together. We had individuals that did well in specific events. " Although Augustine said the high finish at nationals was due to a total team effort, a pair of underclassmen received much of the lime- light, ending the season with All-America honors, Rena Lucke, Pasadena, Md,, sophomore, placed third in the (Continued on page 222) Gymnastics Rocky Mountain Open, United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo, 3rd FHSU-Centenary College Dual University of Northern Colorado, 2nd Greeley, Colo. 3rd FHSU-Texas Women University-Centenary University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Dual, 3rd Eau Claire Wis. 1st NAIA National Championships 4th ■MB _____ Gymnastics Constance Terrell, Garland f Texas, freshman , keeps her eyes and balance on the four-inch-wide balance beam , {Photo Jby Jtojberf Bunting) Jt vonne Hinojosa r Weslaco Texas, junior, does a handstand during her performance on the uneven parallel bars , (Photo by Robert Bunting) 2? eno Pasadena, Md,, sophomore , performs a balance move during her floor routine.

Cary Her tel, Wichita freshman, finished fourth in the balance beam to achieve her prestigous title, All- America honors are given to the top six places in each of the four events and the all- around competition at the national meet. Lucke, a transfer student from Odessa Junior College (Odessa, Texas), earned All- America honors last year at that level, while Hertel burst onto the scene of national recognition as a freshman. " I hate to single individuals out, " Augustine said, " but those two had very productive seasons. " Hertel struggled during her first all-around competition of the season, but rebounded to post respectible marks at the NAIA championships, " I ' d say Cary was probably the athlete of the year for us as far as progressing in competition, " Augustine said. The six-year Tiger gymnas- tics’ coach pointed to her team’s overall scores at a pair of home meets, back-to-back in February and the United States Air Force Academy Invitational (Colorado Springs, Colo.), the last meet before the season finale. At the university’s meet on Feb. 1 3, the Tigerettes broke a school record for most team points with a mark of 136.05. The old record was set in 1985 with a total of 135.25, good for fourth at the NAIA National Tournament. This year ' s team relied on its performance in the vaulting event as its main strength, while the floor exercise and the uneven bars proved to be the Tigerettes ' weakest events. Augustine also said the beam became a strong point of her team, but that the individual scores in that event were sometimes inconsistent. As for next year, the Tigerettes do not lose any individuals to graduation, but Augustine said three girls are not returning because of various reasons, some be- cause of injuries. However, Augustine said the gaps could be filled with new recruits, and with a little bit of good fate, her squad could improve on its national finish this year. " We would like to better our fourth place national champ- ionship standing, " Augustine said. " I think one of my own personal goals is I would like to see us be more competitive against NCAA schools. " I feel like this year our team was the strongest team I ' ve ever had in Fort Hays history, but I perceive next year to be even better. We have a good sound base for next year, and hopefully, with the recruits we ' ll be bringing in, we should be able to beat any top opponent on the NCAA level.

ITT 1 IT i 1 1 M M ■T’TPITr¥ r The entire nation of the United States visited the campus of the Tigers ' , not literally , but in- directly. The women’s gym- nastics squad of Head Coaches Richard and Tawnita Augustine, played host to the NAIA National Women’s Gym- nastics Championships on March 6 and 7 The familiar environment proved beneficial to the Tigerettes as they ended the season with a fourth place finish at the elite tournament. This year ' s finish matched the 1985 showing as the best performance by a Tigerette squad at the national level. The Augustines, coaches of the gymnastics ' squad for the last six years, have led their women ' s team to the NAIA National Championships each of the last six years. Although taking a team to nationals has become a tradition for the Augustines, Tawnita said this year ' s finish means just as much as the others. " I love it! " Tawnita said, " but I ' d love being third or better though. " Although Augustine would certainly welcome a higher finish than fourth, she said the goal at the beginning of the season was to finish in the top four at nationals, and the team overcame a lot of adversity just to achieve its goal. " I feel, had we not had the injuries we had, we could have ended a little stronger, " Augustine said. " There were a few places we were underscored, and there were a few places we didn ' t do as well as we should have. It’s hard to say, but if we would have been a little stronger we would have had a better shot at third or even second, " Winona State won the overall team title with 139.30 points, while the Tigerettes finished nearly four points back at 135.65. Winona State also defeated Augustine’s squad during a meet at LaCrosse, Wis., in early February. Despite the first setback to the eventual national champions, Augustine said she was optimistic about avenging the loss heading into the national tournament. “I was almost sure we could beat them, Augustine said. " I had seen them before and saw what they were like. We were at our low point of the season when they beat us earlier. “ We had so many people out with injuries and didn ' t have a full team, yet they didn ' t beat us by that much. Something happened to that team (at nationals), they just clicked that day, " Besides Winona State clicking that day, two Tigerettes also clicked as Rena Lucke, Pasadena, Md„ sophomore, and Cary Hertel, Wichita freshman, grabbed All-America honors. Lucke placed third in the uneven bars and fifth in the vault and Hertel placed fourth in the balance beam, as the top six finishes in each event earned the elite selection. Lucke and Hertel maintained a streak for Augustine as the Tiger mentor has coached at least one All-America performer in each of her six years of coaching. " I was really proud of Rena, " Augustine said. " I know that was one of her goals - to become an All-American. " I was tickled pink for Cary, I was really pleased that as a freshman, she was able to be in the finals and go on and finish as an All-American. Thafs really quite an honor as a freshman, especially on the beam, because I think that is one of the hardest events to do. " Besides Lucke and Hertel, three other Tigerettes also participated in the finals: Debbie Kelly, ..Topeka sophomore; Stacey Flannigan Crystal Lake, 111,, freshman; and Jaoque Doughlas, Clinton, Iowa, freshman, Besides the national champ- ionships being a success to Augustine because of her team ' s showing, she also said two other aspects of the tourn- ament promoted its success, Mary Leivian, of U.W.- Oshkosh, won individual honors in the all-around competition. " She was the all-around champion last year, " Augus- tine said, " and was also the NCAA Division II all-around champion and qualified to go to Division I. I felt really good about that. That represents our championships well. " Besides Leivan ' s all-around championship, Augustine said KOOD ' s broadcasting of the tournament also helped in promoting. " I think that was a highlight to have somebody do that here, " Augustine said. ' Tort Hays was the one who initiated that contact and was able to get that done. That hadn ' t been done in five years in the NAIA National Champion- ships. I really felt good that Fort Hays was able to get that done for gymnastics. " Overall, I felt the national championships were a huge success. " by Robert Campbell 2 he women ' s gymnastics t am proudly displays its medal .

And according to Coach Vem Henricks, the Tiger ' s season closely mirrors this adage used to describe America ' s favorite pasttime. “We came so close to having even more success, " said Henricks, now mentor of the baseball program for the last eight years. " In districts we lost two 1-run games, and if we could have come up with the right hit at the right time, or better defense in certain situations, we could very well have gone on to the area tournament. " However, the breaks fell against the Tigers as a 6-5 setback to Emporia State University knocked Henricks ' squad out of the District 10 Playoffs and sent them home until next season. Not only did the breaks go against the Tigers in the playoffs, but Henricks ' team constantly faced obstacle after obstacle throughout the season. The Tigers started the season in slow motion, due largely to Mother Nature ' s failure to cooperate. For most of the month of March, the team found it almost impossible to fit practice sessions in between the constant showers and snowstorms. In fact, Henricks said the team played only five games the last three weeks of March, contradictory to what the schedule read. " Anytime you ' re battling Mother Nature or some other outside force more than your opponent, then you start to lose touch with what you ' re suppose to be doing, " Henricks said. " We just never could get it all together as a team, because we couldn ' t get into any type of rhythm. " Despite not being able to get into the flow of things, the Tigers still managed to begin ironing out the wrinkles half (continued on page 229) Dan Buck, Springfield, 111,, senior, watches the hall as he steals a base.

Four members of the squad were ruled ineligible by Athletic Director Robert Van Poppel for not maintaining a high enough grade point average or failure to attend classes on a regular basis. The four players appealed the decision to a local attorney and were allowed to remain on the squad. Although the series of events appeared negative, Henricks said the squad used it to its advantage. " At the time, it kind of pulled us together as a team and helped us play better together, " Heinricks said. " But the whole thing was just an unfortunate situation all the way through. It was really blown out of proportion.

" Our pitching, defense, hitting and everything was looking good then, We just came up a little bit short. " The Tigers ' stretch of success towards the end of the season helped Henricks’ squad end the year with a respectable 27-19-2 overall re- cord and an impressive 21-3-1 mark in District 10 com- petition. Besides ending the season on a high note by winning five of its last seven contests, the squad also landed four players on the First Team All-District squad. The four Tigers named to the elite squad of 15 included pitcher Lyle Befort, Hays senior; second-baseman Ray Plantier, San Diego junior; catcher Mike Valla, Omaha, Neb., junior; and left-fielder Stan Miller, Salina senior. Despite being disappointed about the season because of the weather, Henricks said overall he was pleased with his team ' s performance because of the way they played down the stretch, and weather permitting, he expects the Tigers to improve on this season ' s mark.

(Photo by Don King) The year brought more attention to athletics than the usual concentration on winning or losing a game. Suddenly, student-athletes were in the spotlight. On campus, some wondered if the conflict with the law some student-athletes had encountered projected a wrong image of student athletics. Some sports moved completely out of sight when budget cuts forced the athletic department to cut women ' s softball, men ' s golf and men ' s tennis. Look at the sportlights and find out what all happened off the court. women ' s basketball and track would have been suspended. The season .plccy had already started. Cuts The elec- tion of a new governor af- fected al- most every- one in some way or . an- other. The athletic program was not able to escape from the changes that came with Hayden. Three non -re venue producing sports were dropped due fo budget cuts . Both men ' s and women ' s athletics were affected. It didn ' t take long for Gov. -elect Mike Hayden to make his presence felt. Hayden, elected as governor in November, proposed a 3.8 percent cut in the state ' s edu- cation program. Because of his proposal, the athletic department was forced to take drastic measures. Three spring sports were suspended to counter-balance the loss of state funding. Men ' s golf, men ' s tennis and women ' s softball were suspended for the spring season, with no date of re- instatement set. Athletic Director Robert Van Poppel announced the cuts during an emer- gency session of the athletic board. The athletic department only receives money for the women ' s athletics. If all of the cut had been taken from women ' s ath- letics, play in gymnastics, " Instead of cancelling any contracts in those sports. I’ve decided -to sus- pend play in these three sports and use the private money from those sports to replace the state mon- ey taken out of the other three, " he said. " That way, we can keep those sports intact and keep our con- tracts intact. " The women ' s softball coach Jody Wise said the team was disappointed with the news but under- stood the reasoning be- hind the budget cuts. " They ' re (softball team members) a little disap- pointed, but they under- stand it ' s the budget cuts effective immediately by the state, " Wise said. " There ' s not a lot that you can do. " Although news of the budget cuts caused differing reactions from athlete to athlete, most expressed extreme disap- pointment in the sus- pensions. Over half of the women ' s athletic budget was lost due to the cuts. by Eric Jontra and Kevin Krier Athletic budget for Fiscal 1987 C Women ' s Softball V $6,200 Golf X $7,900 X Other Sports $123,300 Football V $139,700 Men’s | X Basktball 1 X $83,500 Men ' s f Tennis $3,200 r Sports that earn revenue for the athletic department are men ' s basketball and football. The other sports include baseball, track, gymnastics, women ' s track, women ' s basketball, volleyball, women ' s tennis and wrestling. " Our total budget is about $500,000 ’ Van Poppel said, " and our total state money was cut $22,600. Between what we get from student alloca- tions and out of state money, that money al- most supported all the non-revenue producing sports, " The current economic situation of western Kansas won ' t make it any easier for the sports to be placed back on .active status, especially if more cuts are to follow next fall. " I would sure hope these three sports could be reinstated later on, " Van Poppel said, " but everything I do is based on projection, and I have no money to begin with. Bob lowen, men ' s golf coach, agreed with Van Poppel this was the only route at this time. " I can guarantee this. Bob Van Poppel did not cut the sports because he hates the sport or hates the coaches, " Lowen said. " It may not have been a great move as far as public relations is con- cerned, but we ' ll get over it. We ' ll survive. " Sportlights Along for the ride The teams for varsity sports go on road trips every season for games. These trips are often very long. The women ' s basketball team tries to have as much fun as possible on these trips. Road trips can be fun and interesting: favorite stories, practical jokes, food and bathroom breaks, This is not a road trip to a party, it is a road trip in the name of basketball. On one particular road trip the Lady Tigers went to Missouri Western State College, Saint Joseph, Mo., and Wayne State College, Wayne, Neb, The women ' s basketball team left on a Friday, Feb. 6, at 8a.m. in a van and a station wagon. Ten of the Lady Tigers, coach, two assistant coaches, and a trainer load there gear in the van and wagon; eight in the van and five in the car. The seasoned players say this is lux ury; last season everyone traveled in one van. After everything is loaded there are last minute emergency trips for forgotten shoes and snacks. Two hours later the team arrives in Salina. Donuts and drinks are bought in a store as everyone walks around to stretch cramped muscles. During the drive the girls entertain themselves in various ways. The girls listen to music, talk, do homework or sleep. Sleeping girls tend to attract practical jokes. Some girls watch signs and mile-markers for their basketball numbers for entertainment. St. Joseph is finally reached at 2 p.m. The team ate lunch at a Golden Corral restaurant before going to the college. By 3:30 p.m. the team is getting ready for the game at 5 p.m. Some of the girls have their ankles or other parts of the leg taped; one girl is icing some previous injuries. Uniforms are handed out, and the girls go out on the court for warmups. Unfortunately the girls were not able to win this game. Supper and the ride to Omaha, Neb. was quieter than usual. The team arrived at the Ramada Inn in Omaha at 11 p.m. before going to bed some of the girls took advantage of the sauna and pool. Saturday morning was spent sleeping late, doing homework, watching T.V. or roaming the halls. After lunch at Arby ' s the team left for Wayne, Neb., to play Wayne State. By 3:30 p.m. the Lady Tigers had reached the Wayne State campus and started their pre-game rituals. The sleep and shorter ride payed off - the girls brought home a split. Pizza was eaten for supper, and the team started the long trip home. A stop was made far snacks and the bathroom; The map s hows the location oi two campuses which the Lady Tigers played basketball at. The varsi ty spot ts te am $ J ake several long trips to play. the girls were glad to get out of the vehicles and stretch their legs. The Lady Tigers returned home 4 a.m, Sunday. The van and wagon were unpacked, and everyone headed for their homes to catch some needed sleep. A difference in play can be seen from playing on a strange court. " There is an advantage playing on our home court, you have the feel of the court, " John Klein, women ' s basketball coach, said, The long trip can be hard on the team. Not being able to walk or really stretch out for long periods of time makes legs cramp up. Road Trips " The girls have to mentally block out the discomfort, " Klein said. The trips may be long and tiring, but they are also fun and a learning expierence.. " The trips are long, but also fun. Your really get to know the girls better and become more of a team. " Penny Fischer, Seward junior, said. Being in close quarters for long hours tends to affect the whole team, " You learn togetherness on and off the court, and learn how to deal with problems as a team. " Rhonda Cramer, Healy junior, said. by Mildy Hines Wayne State College and Missouri Western State College Nebraska Wayne Hays Si. Joseph Missouri Sportlights fell " ' Sportlights - Laws A wave of scandals had covered college athletics. Unfortunate- ly, the con- troversies began to hit home, especially in the last six months of the year. The athletic department has not exactly had a banner year -- on the football field or the basketball court. And to make matters worse, the behavior some ot the Tigers have been exhibiting off the football field and basketball court had been embarassing for the department. Since the beginning of the current year, the athletes have been in- volved in several different encounters with the law. Charges of rape, battery and car theft head the list. Compounding the prob- lem even further is the fact that two prominent athletes were dropped from the football team earlier in the semester when it was dicscovered that neither had been attending classes with and regularity. Those two football players, Frankie Neal, Cheechobee, Fla., junior, and Rod Timmons, Los Angeles, Cal., senior; were both transfer students from major col- leges. The two are expect- ed to be drafted by the National Football League. But they are not the only student-athletes who have brought a negative light to the athletic department. Cedric Williams. Arling- ton. Texas, sophomore; Mel Irvin. Terre Haute, Ind., junior; Tyrone Jackson, St. Louis, 111., senior; and Eddie Pope, Hattiesburg, Miss., soph- omore; have also hit the headlines for one reason or another. The fact that some athletes may or may not atted class or perform well in the classroom does not even begin to explain why the Tigers named earlier have had problems with the law. In addition to constantly missing class- es, Timmons was charged with rape during the season. The charges against Timmons were dropped, just as the department was informed that he was involved in another rape case at the school he had previously atteded, the University of Kansas. Pope, Irvin and Jackson were all convicted of misdemeanor battery (all three pleaded no con- test), Williams was indict- ed for car theft in another state, and two other football players were involved in an incident at The Limit, a local club. Both Wyatt Thompson, sports director at KAYS- TV Radio; and Rod Gardner, sports editor of The Hays Daily News: agree that the problems that have occurred on the sports scene in the past few years need to be dealt with, and both say they think that the media should handle the prob- lems carefully. " I think college athletics is more under the magni- fying glass at this point and time because of the cheating and so forth that has surfaced in the last decade, " Gardner said. “In this day and age, you can no longer be a sports writer. You have to be almost a court reporter to cover college athletics. " Thompson agrees and cites the recent situation in which basketball play- er Cedric Williams was indicted in Texas for car theft as an excellent ex- ample. " When I first got into the thing with the Cedric Williams, " Thompson said, " if I had any ques- tions at all, I went straight to our news director, fm not a lawyer, and Fm not a police beat reporter. With problems like we’ve had this year, I have to wony about covering myself on every little detail of a report. " Monty Davis, former photographer for The University Leader, ran headlong into problems with the athletic depart- ment eartlier in the fall when he and some friends were beaten up by two football players outside The Limit. Davis identified the athletes as Edmund Faagai.Waianae, Hawaii, junior; and Edward Faagai, Waianae, Hawaii, sopho- more; the two brothers were put under investi- gation. According to Davis, he and his friends were leaving the club and were jumped by the athletes in the parking lot outside. The foursome filed a re- port for the unprovoked attack. Davis, who expected the players to be punished in some way, was extremely frustrated. " But when you think about it, what is really going to be done? They’re just going to get a little slap on the hand, and that ' s what is in the back of my mind. They ' re ob- viously not going to jail for it, and football season is over so they can’t be punished, " Davis said. Although a way to stop the problems seems dif- ficult to figure out. Kevin Amack, Student Govern- ment Association presi- dent, thinks that a little reponsibility could be the key. " The point is that the studen-athletes are in the limelight, " Amack said. " It ' s not Mr. Joe Average student that gets in trouble and gets all the negative publicity for the university. " The reputation of the university could be at stake, " Amack said. by Eric Jontra " You have to be almost a court reporter to cover college athletics " - Rod Gardner Hays Daily News Sportlights Chris Biser ' s Freshman talent pays off for recruit, team When Biser suffered an injury in her senior year in high school, her chances to be recruited dropped. But starting in the center position, Biser soon turned out to be a recruiting success. Chris Biser, Plain, Wis., freshman, says she has definitely found what she is looking for -- that is playing basketball for the university. The 5-foot- 11 center was recruited by women’s basketball head coach John Klein. " After I injured myself before my senior year, all the other schools I had been in contact with kind of backed off. But coach Klein knew me before I was injured and said hed still give me a chance to play down here, " Biser said. Biser got started on basketball early on, " My dad put up a hoop, and I played a lot with the neighbors; they always needed someone to play with. As long as I can remember, I have been playing ball, " Biser said. It’s the teamwork that makes Biser love bas- ketball, " I like basketball because of the team aspect. There is a group effort. Everybody has got to work together, to cover each other, " she said, Klein said he has not regretted recruiting Biser for the team. " She is contributing extremely well. Being a first-year college student and being new to the conference, I didn’t know what to expect of Chris, I didn ' t expect her to do as well as she has her freshman year. She is also a good team member. She seems to get along real well with everybody and carries herself well, " Klein said. C htia Biser, Plain, Wis., Irishman, proves to be a valuable team member, ( Photo by Robert Bunting) In high school, Biser ran track and played volley- ball. This year, she is thinking about going out for outdoor track. But though basketball is her first love, she devotes a big share of her time to her major, English. " We study a lot when we are on the road trips. I like English, because I like to read people’s different views on things, trying to figure out what they want to say. Reading gives you the opportunity to use your mind to figure things out; you can use your imagination, as opposed to watching TV where it is all on the screen, " Biser said. In trying to combine both her love of English and basketball, Biser plans to become an English teacher and basketball coach at the same time. " I figure with coaching, I can stay with the sport as long as I live, " Biser said, Biser said she is kind of a happy-go-lucky person. “I ' m kind of going with the flow. I ' m doing what I want to do - playing college basketball. So I ' m happy,” she said. by Bettina Heinz Sportfights GPA Athletes and their grade point averages came under the scrutiny of people. The Student Government Association thought of reducing al- locations to the athletic department. Because athletics serves as a gigantic window for the public to see what is going on at the university, problems become even more complicated. Many people people do not like what is being seen through that window. Especially students at the school, many of whom think that the title " student-athlete " is no longer a proper des- cription, The reason is simple. Attendance policies and punishments tor athletes do not seem to be used by the different teams and coaches. Kevin Amack, Student Government Association president, is among the students who think the Tiger athletic department has gone a little far in policies. " Naturally, we ' re con- cerned when we feel that some of that money is being used to fund any athlete who is using the money just to be an athlete, and not a student, " Amack said, The SGA president said that a mandatory 2,0 grade point average for any incoming athlete would be a good idea, especially when transfer students from other universities or colleges are in question. Bill Moyer, an avid athletic booster for many years, can’t remember the situation ever being as bad as it is now. " As far as I can remember it has never happened in this proportion before, and it will probably never happen again. We just need to be careful, " Moyer said. One particular athlete, a former football player who wished to remain anonymous, thinks that a good place to start would be to make sure the respective coaching staffs should start making sure their players are indeed receiving an education. According to the player, athletes need only pass 24 hours a year to be eligible for competition. Like Amack. the player said a mandatory 2.0 GPA should be used for athletes in addition to implementing a more stringent attendance policy. " The coaches only check up on us once a year, " the player said, " and that was just before the midterm of the fall semester. During the spring semester, we don ' t have to do anything like that at all. " SGA allocated $109,000 to the athletic depart- ment for the year. Although cuts to the department would seem to be a rather drastic way classes, he says the Tigers are probably about like most other students in the college setting. " When you look at our two national champion- ship teams, you see that everyone is going to have a degree, " Morse said. Bob Lowen is golf coach and director of university relations, He said all students, not only athletes, should attend classes regularly. " Typically, the athletes " Typically, the athletes are in the public view more. They have to present a certain image because everybody is watching them " -Bcfo Lowen Men’s Golf Coach to handle the problems faced thus far, Amack thinks it could happen. The director of Tiger athletics, Robert Van Poppel says he believes that SGA should have the right to request anything it wants, but hopes that the organization would use good judgment when deciding about possible cuts to athletics, " That money is basically used for general ope- rations such as traveling, and none of that money is used for revenue-pro- ducing sports. The only reason we have the allocations is because we could not fund our sports that produce no revenue. It is used nowhere else, " Van Poppel said. Bill Morse, women ' s basketball head coach, says that he and Brad Soderberg, an assistant for the Tigers, have monitored the team ' s class attendance records very closely this year. Although the coach doesn ' t claim that his players are perfect when it comes to attending are in the public view more. They have to present a certain image because everybody is watching them. As far as the university is con- cerned, we want them to be in the public eye. We want them to be great athletes, and we want them to be good students and go to class, " Lowen said. Van Poppel agrees with Lowen ' s belief that athletes should present a good image, but also thinks that the number of people involved should be considered. " There is no question in our minds that we feel like we brought some ques- tionable people in here this year, " Van Poppel said. " We started with that feeling, but it is a chance we took. Some of them didn ' t want to go to class, and as athletic ad- ministrators and coaches, we don ' t have time to run them down all the time. ' ' by Eric Jontra Sportlights Crowd Behavior Statewide, the K-State riot in Manhattan had caused headlines earlier in the year. In Hays, fans provoked similar controversy at the Washburn, Emporia games. It seemed what was going on in the crowd drew more at- tention than what was going on on the court. Generally, a team and coaches wish for a supportive crowd. Yet, there were instances than the crowd might have been a little too supportive for even the most avid Tiger supporters, It seemed that things were slipping out of control when the men ' s basketball team played archrivals Emporia State and Washburn Uni- versity. The university team ' s fans had obviously prepared for a rowdy game. Those preparations included a sign with an obscene message. This sign caused a big controversy as far as the manners of the home fans were concerned. Then, fans started throwing debris on the court, Both actions upset parts of the audience, the referees, members of the athletic department and, of course, the opponents. Even those who usually speak in favor of an out- going crowd saw the danger of throwing debris on the court, an action that can endanger athletes and lead to injuries. Letters to the editor in The University Leader spoke out for both sides. Letters like this one were typical: Dear Editor, As a former student and athlete, I was ashamed of the crowd at the Friday and Saturday Emporia and Washburn games. Just because one does not agree with the referee ' s calls does not give them the right to endanger the athletes. With all the debris that was thrown on the court, we were lucky no one sus- tained any injuries. Are we that incon- siderate that we would ruin an athlete’s future? If those people think they can do a better job of refereeing then why don ' t they sign up for the job. It was definitely dis- appointing for me to see supposedly mature adults acting like children. Micki Armstrong Hays resident The dubious fame of the university’s crowd reached its peak when the behavior of the crowd was subject of an editorial in The Wichita Eagle- Beacon. On campus, university officials decided to settle the matter by calling for the students ' support. Bill Jellison, vice president for student affairs, wrote a letter to all student organizations leaders. In the letter, he asked for the students’ support to display more appro- priate behavior at the games. He also announced new rules that were set up with the athletics department. They included that a game was to be inter- rupted soon as debris was thrown on the floor. Likewise, a game would be interrupted if there was an obscene sign and (continued on page 241) wdy crowd behavior at the game against Washburn Uni- versity stirred up controversy : (Photo by Robert Bunting Sportlights I Sportlights I ■ 3-point rule affects game, Basketba Decades from now, when basketball games are played with 1 5-foot high rims, point-guards are no smaller than 7 feet tall, and Hays ' sports has its very own professional | team, the 1986-87 season will be nothing more than an answer to a trivia question. That will be the year the 3 -point shot became standard practice in ! college basketball. Despite overwhelming opposition from college coaches around the country, NCAA rule makers took it upon themselves and inserted the gimmick, and ■ apparently, it’s here to E stay. " The media and the fans like the 3-point J play,” Tiger coach Bill Morse said. " The NCAA would get laughed at if they decided to take it out. “They can’t put it in and take it out. I think they’ll leave it. The best thing we can hope for is they decide to move it out a foot. " Morse, who has led the Tigers to two NAIA National Championships j and an overall record of 150-27 in five seasons, strongly opposes the . new gimmick. " My personal opinion, which really doesn ' t matter, is that I would i rather not see any of the rules changed from what they were five years ago. In other words, I don’t like the shot clock, and I don’t like the 3-point play. “To me, it’s a joke. It ' s a shame. We had a great game. Basketball was at its peak just before the 3- point shot and shot clock came into effect.” Although opposed to the new rule, Morse said he is prepared to adjust to the situation and teach his players to become more dis- ciplined. “I think it ' s going to take more discipline to be a great team with the Bill Morse, men ' s basketball head coach, says the 3- point rule has turned basketball into more of a poker game. (Photo by Robert Campbell) new rule than it has in the past,” Morse said. " In the past, those long shots were just not acceptable. Well, now they are. “The players are going to have to be more disciplined to know when to pull up and take the shot. So. it’s going to be a tougher game for the players.” Although some teams with outstanding 3-point shooters will thrive on the new rule. Mors e said most games will still be decided inside the arc. Although Morse does not view the new rule to have that drastic of an effect on the game, the mentor with a winning percentage near .800 said the 3-point shot has its drawbacks. " It takes the game out of the coach’s hands to some degree and Opens it up to become a very exciting game that ' s not over, " Morse said. For instance, Morse said a team may be leading by 1 0 or so points in the closing minutes, and the other team hits a couple of 3 -pointers and is back in contention of winning. " As a coach, that scares me. " Morse said. To be out there working like a dog all game long, get ahead and then get beat. That, to me. is an unjust Sportlights upsets coach ll ' s NewGimmick situation. " The fans are saying ' Great game. How exciting can it be. ' Thafs fine; maybe the game is for the fans, Maybe it ' s for the players, but I don ' t like it. " Morse said the new rule turns the game into something that is better suited for the atmos- phere of Las Vegas. " Ifs almost like playing poker, " Morse said. " You lose all night long, then, the last hand, everyone is wild. You get a big pot, and you end up a big winner. " Well, who is the better poker player, the guy that works all night long to get ahead or the guy who won the last hand? I ' m not a gambler, but the point is - ifs turned the game into a carnival, " Speaking of carnivals, a pair of Tiger losses to Washburn helped the Ichabods ride into the NAIA National Tour- nament and return as champions. Of the two losses to Washburn, a mid-season setback directly involved the 3-point play, coach Morse said. In the Jan, 17 contest at Gross Memorial Coliseum, the Tigers led by double digits with three minutes remaining and by six with 35 seconds showing on the clock. The Ichabods connec- ted on a pair of 3- pointers to send the game into overtime and eventually pulled off a 94-84 come-from-behind win. Although the 3-point shot definitely played a role in the outcome of that contest, Morse said. overall, the rule did not effect the Tigers dras- tically. " It didn’t have much of an effect on us, " Morse said. ' We weren ' t great at shooting the 3 -pointer, but we weren ' t real bad either. The Tigers, for the most part, did not thrive or suffer from rule makers latest attempt to make the game more exciting, but Morse said he has read articles where new ideas have been suggested. " To be sarcastic of course, " Morse said, " there was a guy who printed an article I saw that said, ' You can have two points for shots inside the arc; three points for shots just outside the arc; then, for shots on the other side of half court, you get six points. ' Then, you can have a light hanging from the bottom of the score board, and when the red light is flashing, any three point shot would be worth nine. ' " Hell of a deal, " Morse said. " It would be a great game, bonus points and stuff like that. " by Robert Campbell " It ' s almost like playing poker. You lose all night long, then, the last hand, everyone is wild. You get a big pot, and you end up a big winner, " -Bill Morse Basketball coach Crowd {Continued from page 239) not be continued until the sign was removed. Some students said they just couldn ' t understand how college students could possibly act the way they did at the games. " Being an older student, I might have a different opinion than most other students, but I think it is just a lack of con- sideration for the own team as well as the other team, " Donna Tucker, Rhinelander, Wis., senior, said. " It shows poor up- bringing. It just ruins the whole game. The whole thing was bad publicity for the school, " Tucker said. Troy Applegate, Hays senior, is a member of the men’s basketball team. He said that team members see the crowd aspect a little different than the public. " As a player, I like the crowd to be outgoing. It gives you support. We have a good crowd here at the unversity. " Also, one has to consider that we were playing Emporia and Washburn. They are our traditional rivals . It is common in college athletics that the crowds act rowdy when there is a big game going on, " Applegate said. He said that he agreed with the need for some regulations, though. " I think things like throwing debris on the floor have to be eliminated, because they endanger the athletes, " Applegate said. The crowds at the games following the controversy displayed a less rowdy behavior, to the point that at the third-to-last game of the season, people started com- plaining that the crowd was too quiet. With the end of the basketball season, the controversy died, and a few months later, nothing remained but the general consensus that the whole thing had been blown out of proportion. The competition around the NAIA championship then ended with an ironic twist when university fans suddenly supported Washburn which had defeated the Tigers and competed successfully for the national title afterwards. by Bettina Heinz Sportlights ll-ii 1 I i i i- i i I I I i i i i L i i i 1 ! t f ' r I 1 L 1 J 1 1 1 1 1 1 I 1 LJ 1 I I i i i i i i i I I i i Lv Vater Makes Polo Fun TTTTTT1 rrnrrrr 1 1 1 M 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 TTTT I L_l L 1 1 LLE “ Women screaming, splashes, and shouts of " over here " were heard throughout the HPER pool, as student teams played Coed Innertube Waterpolo. Innertube waterpolo is as interesting as the name implies. There are eight players on a team, four women and four men. The object is to throw a ball into a net wMo the goalie is guarding it. All of this is done while trying to stay on an innertube. Opposing teams try to tip each other off of the innertube. They also try to splash water so the person with the ball cannot see his teammates. The only player that can throw the ball while off of the innertube is the goalie, but he can only throw the ball halfway across the pool. Bud Moeckel, intramura l recreation sports director, said that there were eight teams that played on the first night, and 10 teams on the second night. ' ‘I got into playing because the Alpha Kappa Psi team doesn ' t have enough players, " Lisa Fisher. Bucklin senior, said. " I was conned into playing by Lisa. " Karen Stejskal.

I was just stopping the bail. If I had been one of the other players, 1 might have gotten more tired. " The teams were divided into four different leagues. Coming out on top of League I was the Iceman with a record of 3-0. League II was conquered by the Hairy Buffalos which was 1-2. League III saw a tie as the Zebu ' s and the Lagnaf ' s finished first with matching records of 2- 1 . League IV was swept by Resfirma with a record of 3-0. At the end of league play, a tournament was held at the HPER pool. The tournament was divided into two divisions. In Division A competition, the Lagnaf ' s won first place; the Iceman, second; and the Resfirma. third; all with a record of 5-1. In Division B, the All-Stars took home top honors with a record of 3-2. Sigma Chi III won second place with a 3-2 record. The Tlexibles finished third with a 3-3 record.

It’s a good thing that Paul Nelson, WaKeeney senior, isn’t like most athletes, Nelson’s acomplish- ments in both college academics and atheletics looks like a grocery list. College Sports Inform- ation Directors of America District All-Academic Team for three years; CSIDA Academic All- American for two years; NAIA Division I Academic All-American for two years; Honorable Mention All-Conference for two years; Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities; and the Outstanding Senior Greek Man at Hays; are just about half of the honors that he has received. Nelson usually carries about 15 to 16 hours a semester, including dur- ing football season, but doesn ' t find it hard to juggle each day’s responsibilities, " It really works, I have classes in the morning, football in the afternoon, study in the evening, and fraternity {Sigma Phi Eps- ilon) takes an hour or two of my time, " Nelson said. Hard work wasn ' t the only thing that helped bring good fortune to Nelson. P auJ Nelson, WaKeeney senior, accepts awards at the All-Greek honors banquet, In the Gross Memorial Coliseum. (Photo by Robert Bunting) Of all the honors that Nelson has received, he ' s most proud of the Aca- demics All-American Awards in football. " I feel that I put the most effort into that, It was a culmination of lifting, running, working out, going to practices, and studying, It means a lot to me to receive these awards, " Nelson said. As graduation ap- proaches for Nelson, he looks back at the mem- ories made here at the university and knows that the many hours spent in and out of the classroom as well as the football field were worth it. " Academics come pretty easy to me, though I work hard putting in four to five hours a day studying. You just have to budget your time, " Nelson said.

When most people get a job in a profession, they still look for ways to advance themselves in their field. That seems true, even more so in the coaching field. Joe Fisher is no exception. After seven seasons as head coach for cross country, indoor track, and track and field, Fisher has decided not to return for his eigth season, The coach who replaced the legendary Alex Francis, has opted to move to a bigger school. He will accept a similar position at State University of New York, Geneseo, N.Y. " It is moving to a Division III, NCAA school, and it is a professional advance-ment, " Fisher said, " It is time to make a move, and right now is the best time to do it here. " Fisher was the mentor for the track team for seven seasons. He has been the coach for nearly 40 All-American athletes, and about 1 0 more academic All-Americans, the latter being his most boastful. " In our situation here with the cross country and track program, we have had good student- athletes, " Fisher said. " We ' ve had great kids, good students, good athletes, and I ' ve enjoyed it. " The move to a Division HI school will mean more help for Fisher on the coaching staff. " There, I will have graduate assistants, plus two or three people in the community who volunteer as assistants, " he said. " So I H have a much larger coaching staff. " The number of members on his team will be about the same as it was here. The student-athlete porportion will be very similar also. “The students there are great student-athletes, " Fisher said. " There are no scholarships in Division III, so the kids are there because they want an education. " The thing Fisher will miss the most will be the members of the track team, which he will be forced to leave behind. " I hate to leave our team. I believe that our big problem, I guess you ' d say, is making the move and not being able to work with the great kids we ' ve got here, " Fisher said, " The whole team is a bunch of fine young men and women, and they ' ve always been. That ' s my biggest disappointment about leaving here. " I hate to leave my teams. TheyVe done real well, and I’ve been happy to work with them. That is the tough thing in coaching. When you have to move, you leave behind people who you’ve worked with and really cared for.

During both semesters o! 1986-87, around 50,000 entries for more than 2,800 intramural games and matches were taken from approximately 2,000 students. A student may be involved in more than one intramural sport. In the fall, there were 29, 1 17 entries for all the sports combined. " This year everything (sports) has increased. In fact, there has been more than ever before, " Denk said. There are 51 sports for the men and women to compete in, from archery to co-ed water volleyball. There are 14 special events planned from the billards tournament to the whiffleball tournament, " I don’t know what sport there is that we don ' t provide them, " Denk said. " We ' re getting so many team participants, it is almost impossible to add anything. " Trap shooting was started just this year though and had approximately 30 participants. " Bud Moeckel and I both like to hunt and decided we wanted to try it, and it worked out real well, " Denk said. Intramural football, basket- ball and volleyball have the most participants, with volleyball being the most popular. " It takes a little less skill and and endurance as opposed to basketball, " Sonya Cousins, Hays senior, said. Intramural Office.

The HPER is funded in part from the entry fees charged for participating in the intramural sports. The amount charged per team to participate per sport is $10; coed is $5 per sport. There are no eligibility rules in the recreation program except the student must be enrolled for one credit hour. For the intramural program they must be enrolled in seven credit hours. Graduate students only have to be enrolled in six credit hours. Faculty and staff also may play the intramural sports, either individually or on a team. Beside participating for fun, every year a men ' s and women ' s AU-Sports Champion is chosen. " It’s a pretty prestigious award. A lot of kids really shoot for it,” Denk said. The champions are chosen based on success, partici- pation, points for team, individual and dual sports. This does not count for co-ed sports, which are considered recreation and are not counted for the All-Sport Champion award. There are several different sports which can be participated in to earn the award. Some of the sports are very unusual, others are very simular to the varsity sports. Wallyball and pickleball are two of the more unusual sports. Volleyball, tennis and football are some of the varsity-like sports. Wallyball combines two of the varsity stlye sports into one unusual sport. It is volleyball played on a racquet ball court. The net divides the court in half. The players can hit the volleyball off the walls like racquet ball. by Mildy Hines .Marie Stufterfiolm, Alemea sopho more, referees a game for the intramurals.

The cheerleaders tried something different, They recruited five yell-leaders and a mascot to help them cheer on the university ' s teams, This fresh start helped the teams get ready for their games and made the crowd come alive, Beginning in the football season, the cheerleaders and the yell-leaders worked to get different stunts and tricks up to performance level. They were there to help make a lot of noise and catch the eye of the crowd. When National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics rules came out, the university ' s athletic director, Robert Van Poppel, decided that it would be best if they (the university) would not allow the male yell- leaders, because of the possibility of serious injuries. " The rules stated that the stacking of bodies was prohibited, not the use of male yell-leaders, " Kendra Mixer, Ellis sophomore .said , The fact that other squads in the NAIA were doing it had no effect on the administration, The rules can be interpreted in many different ways, and Van Poppel interpreted them one way and decided that it would be best not to have male yell- leaders. At the beginning of the spring semester, the cheer- leaders had tryouts to fill three vacancies on the squad, The positions of a squad member, an alternate and the mascot were filled. The Tiger Debs began their season even before school started. Their tryouts were during enrollment week, and the girls were picked on the last day of enrollment. They performed at all home football games and at two men ' s basketball games, They also made a performance at WaKeeney High School ' s football homecoming. For their first performance during the football season, the Tiger Debs performed a ' 50s number to " Johnny Be Good " , They also performed routines to the songs " Caroline " by The Heat, and " Cosby Show " , " I think Tiger Debs had a successful year, and we are looking forward to another successful year with a larger squad and more perform- ances, " Darcey Deines, WaKeeney sophomore, said. Next year the squad plans to expand to 16 girls.

Now we ' re trying to reach out into the community, " Thea McKinney, Lewis sophomore, said. " A new thing that we did this year was put on barbeques. We did one tor the Kansas Livestock Association ' s meeting and one at Otis ' s John Deere company ' s buffet. Our members prepare and serve the meal on a donation basis, then they decide how much we ' re worth. It ' s kind of a publicity thing to let the community know we ' re here and we want to do things, " McKinney said. Block and Bridle members don ' t have to be ag majors, and they don ' t have to have a farm background, “They just have to show an interest in agriculture and animal science, " McKinney said. McKinney said that a dairy judging contest for high school Future Farmers of America members is the first major function of the year. About 150 students from high schools all over Kansas attend. " The contest is at the university farm. We use their animals, and our members clean them up and get them ready to show. Our members work as timers and do everything to put the contest on,” McKinney said. " The next thing we do is a junior college judging contest. Again, we use the university ' s dairy, swine, sheep and beef animals and do all the preparation. We provide lunch for the contestants and make sure there ' s someone to take care of them, " she said. In the spring the group helps the Agriculture departmenet put on a regional FFA livestock judging contest along the same guidelines as the dairy contest. " Our big thingr in the spring is the Little International. It ' s a judging contest open to anyone on campus, whether they’re just interested in learning about judging or if they have a little bit of experience, " McKinney said. She said that after the show the evening turns into an Agriculture department awards banquet. An information table at enrollment and a membership drive barbeque are techniques used to increase membership in Block and Bridle. " We ' ve increased our membership a lot in the last three years, and we ' re hoping to add about 1 0 next year,” McKinney said. She said that this year the organization had about 50 members. " We help the Agriculture departments with the endowment telethon, too. There are lots of little things like that we do that aren ' t major functions but are all part of making the organization a success, " McKinney said. by Kristy Love AJay Boley, Block and Bridle president, listens to Lisa Amoldy.

Colleen Wagner, Victoria freshman, is the newsletter editor, " Our newsletter, The Social, is sent out once a month to the freshmen in the dorms, " Schmidtberger said. " On the second weekend in November we started our activities with the Western Kansas Teen Conference. The conference was for kids ages 13 to 19 from all over Kansas, " Schmidtberger said. There were workshops on campus and toms both on and off campus, including the college farm, the radio television department and Hadley Regional Medical Center. " There was a workshop on coping with the teen years by Rob Mowrer (assistant professor of psychology) that the participants really liked. Other workshops were on college resources and preparing for college, Schmidtberger said. " Patty Baoonrind did a session on marketing ideas for the 4-H ambassadors, which are older members who market the organization, " he said. " In the morning we spent two to three hours in a get- acquainted session. By the end of the day everyone who worked at it knew everybody ' s name, which was pretty impressive, 1 ' Schmidtberger said, Schmidtberger said that during the day the participants had free time to go see what the campus is like. Some of them asked for tours of specific departments. The day was completed with a banquet where Jim Costigan, professor of communication, spoke. " In January we had a workshop on communication. We invited kids from this region, which covers six counties. The workshop was built around how to give presentations, public speaking and demonstrations. It was open to any member of any age, the parents and 4-H agents, " Schmidtberger said. He said that members also judge at fairs and 4-H days in area counties, and they helped out with the livestock and home economics judging school put on by the Fort Hays State Branch Experiment Station. " In the spring we hosted the Regional Collegiate 4-H Conference for the North Central region, which Kansas belongs to. Kansas State University and Fort Hays State went together to sponsor it at K-State, but a lot of the preliminary work was done here, " Schmidtberger said, " As far as money makers go, we sell 4-H T-shirts to local clubs. We had severed bake sales, and we sold T- shirts at a booth at Oktoberfest, " he said. “Our club won the bid for the national service project last year, and at the national conference in Ohio on April 8 to 12 we presented the project book for it, Our club also has a chairman of a national committee, Kim Schmidtberger, " Schmidtberger said. " While we were at the national conference we attended several good workshops on things like presenting a good resume and preparing for job interviews. We also toured a lot of places in the area while we were there, " he said. |§| by Kristy Love f . % % i A, I i n i L .

Nevertheless, BACCHUS members say they are not tea-totalers and don ' t want to preach. It seemed like BACCHUS members hustled from one activity to another throughout the year. In the summer of 1986, they originated interest in the organization through a sidewalk ice-cream sale, Soon as the fall semester started, BACCHUS members took up their weekly meetings. They say it is a big challenge to try to promote awareness of the dangers of alcohol abuse and prevent people from drunk driving when they group aimed at consists of college students, on top of that in an area where beer consumption is one of the highest in the nation. " It ' s a big challenge because there are still enough people who think that you aren’t a real man if you don ' t drink, " Steve Hall, Salina senior, said. The first big activity came with Oktoberfest where BACCHUS sold non-alcoholic brews, both import and export and also introduced a new kind of Seltzer to the Hays community. As BACCHUS put emphasis on introducing the product as an alternative rather than making money, the organization hardly made any money but was satisfied with the turnout, " We sold more than we thought we would, " Hall said. Adviser Jim Nugent said rather than making money, the idea of introducing a new, alcohol-free product to the community was important. Steadily trying to promote alcohol awareness, BACCHUS mailed a monthly newsletter and put up a bookshelf with literature pertaining to alcohol awareness in the Forsyth Library. " What I like about BACCHUS is the idea of responsible drinking and party planning. The fund raisers we do for information and service and the conventions we attend are most informative, " Hall said. BACCHUS tries to work closely with the community. Members attended a training session at St. John’s Chemical Dependency Unit at St, Anthony ' s Hospital, 2220 Cantebury Road, and they also co-sponsored a Driving Under Influence seminar in the Memorial Union with the Student Health Center and campus and Hays police task forces. The DUI seminar had a big turnout. Four student volunteers consumed different amounts and kinds of alcoholic beverages under close observance and were then asked to take DUI tests usually applied out on the streets. " I joined BACCHUS because our president encouraged me to join. I am interested in supporting family members or friends who are concerned about someone else ' s drinking, " Erma Magie, Healy junior, said. aBACCHUS.

Of those, 20 make up the talent for the rodeo team which participates under the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association standards, according to Garry Brower, associate professor of agriculture. “There are 20 people who compete in the rodeos, but actually only nine - six men and three women - are on the team. Those nine change each week, " Brower said. " The only way a student knows he ' s on the team is when he gets the receipt after paying his fees, and its marked with an X. It kind of keeps them on the ban, " he said. Brower said that the team members’ scores are added together for a lump total. The rest of the participants compete as individuals. The Rodeo Team competes in the Central Plains region, one of 11 regions in the country. The team competes against junior coUege and some National Collegiate Athletic Association schools, including Oklahoma State University and Kansas State University. The Rodeo Club and team sponsor the annual Fort Hays State Rodeo each April. The team also chaDenges the graduates at the annual Alumni Rodeo in early fall. Male team members compete in one or more of the six NIRA sanctioned events. The events include saddle bronc riding, bull riding, bareback competition, calf- roping, steer wrestling and team roping. Women team members participate in barrel racing and modified roping events. In break-away calf- roping, the rope “breaks a way once the calf is roped, " Brower said.

Matt Keller, MUAB chairman, explained that there are seven committees in MUAB in order to complete all the work required to reach that goal. " The music committee is in charge of the Sundowner, Spotlight, and Gallery series. “The Sundowners are always on Sundays. We have tacos Or burritos, or whatever SAGA wants to serve. It ' s like a Sunday supper with entertainment. “The Spotlight is usually a soloist. They ' re more popular artists, pretty big names. The Spotlight is usually the best turnout. But we don ' t have as many of them, because they are the trigger names. The rest go reasonably well, but they are on a smaller level. “The Gallery series is more of a coffee house. It’s a relaxing atmosphere where they can just listen. ‘The major concert committee, chaired by Eric Newcomer, is in charge of the fall and spring concerts featuring well-known popular artists, " Keller said. “The arts, film and lecture committee is chaired by Donna Tucker. She is responsible for anything artsy or cultural; not that, musicians aren ' t cultural. But this committee has the after-dinner theater, speakers and the poetry-photo contest. " The extra curricular committee, co-chaired by Karla Norton and Lisa Storer, takes care of any noon-time programs, such as the juggler and mime.

MUAB Interculturcd exchange is the No. 1 goal for the International Student Union. With 82 international students attending the university in the fall and 85 in the spring, international students add more than a foreign touch to the university, Darla Rous, ISU advisor, said. The students represent 25 foreign countries, Rous said. Most are graduate students, and many are sponsored by their governments and expected to return to their home countries after they complete their program. " The ISU tries to make the university and the community profit as much as possible from the assembly of foreign cultures, " Rous said. Oktoberfest was the first activity of the year for ISU to get exposure. ISU sold eggiolls, which turned out to be a profit-making project, Rous said. ISU members also said they put a lot of effort into their float. Despite heavy rain on the morning of Homecoming, most ISU members showed up for the wet ride. ISU won the Founders Day Award, a $100 prize, for its float. The biggest activity of the year was the Girl Scouts Mini Fair. Members had to keep 400 girls from age 6 to 10 entertained for a whole day. AKLrk Johnson, Hays sophomore, tells area girl scouts about the 12 years he lived In India at the ISU Girl Scout Mini Fair.

Model UN Activities give view of actual international relations After political science students played host to the Model United Nations for area high school students in October, they got their own chance to participate in the Midwest Model UN in February, " In the high school UN, our students are staff as much as anything, " Larry Gould, Model UN adviser, said. " In the Midwest Model UN, they are delegates as well as participants, " Gould said. The Midwest Model UN in St, Louis included students from 70 delegations from 60 universities in nearly 20 different states. According to Gould, there are three differences in the high school UN and the Midwest Model UN. More bodies of the actual UN are simulated, there are more working committees and the Midwest Model UN includes a World Court, Gould said, In the 1987 World Court, cases tried were the Falkland Islands vs. Great Britian in a suit for damages in its invasion; Libya vs. U.S. for damages in the bombing of Libya; and Denmark and Sweden vs. the Soviet Union for damages in Chernobyl. In each case, the defendant won. In the Midwest Model UN, students represent different countries in the UN. This year, the university represented Canada and Angola. Rodney Ritchey, St. Francis senior, led the Canadian delegation in his third year at the Model UN. He said the Model UN is useful in learning about world issues, " Not too many people get to study world issues like that, " he said. " Sometimes I get lost and forget it’s just a simulation, " Ritchey said. " You can imagine what their countries are like in a simulation like that. " Not only could delegates imagine themselves in another countries, some dressed themselves in that country ' s attire. " The girls from the Middle East wore clothes from that country, and the Israelis wore their skull caps,” Gould said, " and the Syrians wore headbands. " Gould said the Model UN gives students a chance to compete in an intercollegiate, non-athletic event. “It gives students from a variety of disciplines- business, history, business, communications-- a chance to do a different type of event that ' s non- athletic, " Gould said.

Two years ago, there were only 20 members, and now there are 120. Non-traditional students make-up 30 percent of the school body, Poe said. " Since we are such a large part of the campus society, I ' m very pleased to see how well the organization is beginning to affect the administration ' s view towards the needs of non- traditional students, " Poe said. To start the year there was an NTS picnic and volleyball party at Swinging Bridge Park. The entire families of the members were invited to join in playing games and eating watermelon. For Halloween members had a masquerade party at one of the members’ house. " We had a ball. Everyone who came had a costume on, " Poe said. The group had a Christmas open house in December. They invited the staff, personnel and community people to answer questions and to inform the people. In March they had a beach party in a basement of a member ' s house. The members wore beach attire and had hot dogs and chips, " There was no beach, but AChaill© Meyer, Osage City funlor, and Lona Poe, Kays teeshman, air up an inflatable rcdl at the Non Traditional Students beach party.

SAA was founded in 198 1 . SAA membership is open to all enrolled students, The purpose of SAA is to help students become aware of responsibilities Fort Hays State Alumni and the university have to one another, While here as students, people have many chances to work with alumni, faculty, and other students in developing a sense of belonging, identity and pride in their university, Johansen said, As students work with the Alumni Office staff on membership drives, fund raising telethons, and other activities which instruct and educate, they gain valuable training as future leaders in the development of the university, The membership drive parties are a way of involving students with fundraising necessary to the growth of an effective university, ' ' We help with the Alumni Telethon each fall. Our members answer phones and take donations, " Tammi Fields, SAA president, said. She said that during senior tour days SAA members help out by leading groups and showing the campus to prospective students. " On Oktoberfest we helped the Alumni Association by handing out pamphlets and by signing up Alumni and graduating seniors to get Alumni membership up, " Fields said. After Christmas SAA members begin working on the care package project. " That ' s where we put together bags of goodies for the students in the dorms, and give the bags to them on Valentines Day, " Fields said. SAA also helped with the Muscular Distrophy Association dance-athon on April 3 and 4. ' We have an annual oozeball tournament each year during Tribedoozeatugcdon. That ' s a day of games and fun, sponsored by us and MUAB, This year it was May 2, " Fields said.

We decorated one of the big trees by Picken Hall.

(Photo by Jean Walker) Alumni Students of journalism have been able to gain professional experience by being on staff of the University Leader. Jobs on staff vary from reporter to section editor to advertising to photographer to editor in chief. Brad Vacura, Leader editor in chief during the 1986 summer and fall semester, said being editor proved to be a valuable learning experience for him. " Before I became editor, it was easy to sit back and say ‘If I were editor, I would do this, or I would do that, 1 but to actually be in the position of making decisions that could affect a lot of people is an entirely different thing,” Vacura said. Vacura said that after enrolling in Leader Lab. the corresponding class, staff members can progress through a series of editorial positions. Staff positions are appointed on a semester basis, and students are paid for the work they do. “Students are actually in charge of every angle of production of a real newspaper. " Vacura said. “During the fall semester, I probably learned as much, if not more, than whcrt tire staff learned from me. That’s the best thing about working for the Leader- -it is a learning experience for everyone involved. " Vacura said the summer ediction of the Leader helped prepare him for the fall. Last summer, the Leader changed its format from being a newspaper to being a weekly magazine called the Summer Review. " At the end of the spring semester last year, we had a meeting of the summer staff to discuss changing the paper ' s format from a newspaper to a magazine. It was a unanimous decision t o make the change, " Vacura said. " We all wanted the opportunity to be able to work on a magazine. " He said both the Leader and Summer Review were received well by other schools throughout the nation at several of the Associated Collegiate Press-College Media Advisers conferences. The ACP-CMA conference was in Washington, D. C. in November. Twenty-five Fort Hays State representatives attended the conference. “It’s a real honor to see other schools, credible schools, hold up your paper and point out all of the good things about it. " he said. “I think students are lucky to have such a reputable publication to work for while attending Fort Hays, " Vacura said. “It gives us a chance to see what the newspaper business is really about.

The criteria for membership in Kappa Omicron Phi are being a second semester sophomore majoring in home economics, being in the upper one-third of the academic class and possessing leadership abilities, according to Merlene Lyman, professor of home economics, Lyman said that the group meets monthly and has a series of professional programs centered on a general theme. " For this year ' s theme we had different work family balance situations. For example, some of the speakers we had were a lady who works in the home and has children, a family where both parents work outside the home and a single parent. They all shared how they distribute their time, " Lyman said. Members of the group participate in other activities than the theme programs, such as donating canned goods to the Community Assistance Center, " The organization also supports the Crossmore School Inc., a home for orphans in Crossnore, N.C., " Lyman said. Delegates from the local chapter attended a national convention where they learned about career computer programming, Lyman said.

McNeil said that membership is open to anybody, but the group consists mostly of students majoring in home economics. " It is basically a social organization. Members also attend conferences on home ec each fall and spring, " McNeil said, Gayla Smalley, Hays freshman, said that the group has monthly meetings with educational programs. " At our meetings there are sort of features on people from careers in home economics who give demonstrations or tell us about their particular occupation. For example, we had a lady from one of the salons in town who talked about some of the latest styles, " she said. " Our first meeting was kind of a get-together where we all just got acquainted with each other, " Smalley said. v " At Christmas we had a wine and cheese tasting party that was kind of different and a lot of fun, " she said.

Ministries seek worldwide unity of Christian faiths By definition, ecumenical means advancing or advocating Christian unification. This is the primary goal of the Ecumenical Campus Center, which is supported by and represents four specific denominations. Those denominations are the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ and the Church of the Brethren, The Ecumenical Campus Center serves not only students, but faculty, staff and the community as well, " The center is also an outreach and liason between the university and the community, " Christiane Luehrs, administrative assistant for the center, said. The center also serves many more functions. A Annie Sprenicel, Hays junior and student intern at the Northwest Kansas Family Shelter, checks out a sate item during the Ecumenical book sale, Fholo by Jean Walker) including housing the Hospice of the Plains, the Northwest Kansas Family Shelter and the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship office, as well as counseling for rape and family crisis and serving as a meeting place for campus and community groups. The center serves several hundred people per week. Because of the center’s support of the student body, it seeks to have students on the local board so that students ' needs and views can be defined and served, Luehrs said. In total there are seven Ecumenical Campus Centers in Kansas, located at each of the Regents schools and Washburn University as well, All seven centers are supported by denominations appropriate to the particular beliefs of the individuals in each area. The center is open to all students, regardless of their religious convictions. " Basically, the center seeks to provide the campus with ministry, counseling, fellowship, and friendship, " Luehrs said. by Jon Arbogast AChrls Luehrs, administrative assistant, helps organize sale Items at the Ecumenical book sal©.

An unoccupied floor in McMindes Hcdl was reserved for the residents who had not moved to McMindes or Custer halls earlier in the semester. A Welcome-Back Picnic was the first activity of the year. Members had a hot dog and hamburger cook-out on the lawn. " Everyone showed up and we all got to meet each other, " Robbie Angelo, Omaha sophomore, said. Agnew residents had a catered Thanksgiving meal to celebrate the holiday. The annual semi-formal was in Schoenchen. A disc jockey entertained at the dance, which centered around a Christmas theme. " All the residents showed up at one time or another during the night, and I think everyone had a good time, “ Angelo said. In December Housing hosted a good-bye to Agnew party . While there, residents watched movies and ate pizza supplied by the Backdoor. " We all had fun eating pizza and watching VCR movies. It was a chance for us to spend one last time all together, " Angelo said. At the end of the semester the residents had a garage and moving sale. They decided it would be a good idea for the girls to be able to sell some of their belongings before they had to move. According to James Nugent, director of housing, there is a possibility that Agnew Hall will be reopened in the future, either as a coed or cooperative housing establishment. “It depends on the interest we find according to the housing contracts for next year, " Nugent said. by Tricia Holmberg AThe empty remains lelt ol Agnew HaLTs main lobby alter the closing ol the hcdl.

The only co-ed and co-op hall, Custer is also the only upperclassmen hall on campus, After the closing of Agnew Hall, Custer remained the smallest and cheapest hall. Custer residents said they often find a certain image associated with Custer that they don ' t find suitable at all. Arthur Khaw, Melbourne, Australia, graduate student, said that he has found most people to believe Custer residents are straight-time studiers and have no social lives, " I think a ' lot of people here are upperclassmen, so with their classes they probably have to study a little more than freshmen. But we don ' t study all the time, " Khaw said. It might be the small number of residents living there, but residents say there is a family-type of atmosphere in Custer. " When I came here I lived at Wiest, but it was too big. Here the rooms a pretty comfortable, and we have our own rooms. I like the atmosphere here, " Khaw said, " I basically just wanted smaller dorm life, personally, " he said. That family-type of feeling leads residents to engage in a number of various activities together, ranging from intramurals to building a fire in the fireplace on cold winter nights, playing ping-pong or watching TV together. Every Custer resident has cleaning duties, which is why the hall is considerably cheaper than other halls. Cleaning duties rotate weekly, and residents say they don ' t mind the cleaning at all. The fear of a possible close-down of Custer Hall because of the small number of residents made the residents get even closer to each other. They set up weekly meetings to discuss and plan projects pertaining at keeping Custer open. CUSTER HALL.

After the dinner, a disc jockey entertained the residents and their guests for the evening, McMindes Hall council was very busy, Covington said. Representatives from each floor met once a week.

" I have a lot of friends that are Greeks, but there are a few Greeks that think the world revolves around the Greek system, and if you are not a Greek, they think something is wrong with you, " Joe Hibbert, Liberal senior, said. Independents can be recognized on campus just as the Greeks can. Many independents have sweatshirts with the Greek letters " GDI 1 on them, Some independent people said they thought they would lose too much freedom if they became Greek. " I guess ifs all right if you want someone to run your life in college, day in and day out, " Dave Devine, Scandia senior, said. Although fraternities and sororities are generally thought of as a housing situation first and a social organization second, some independent students said the housing situation is the primary reason they are opposed to Greek houses, " I didn ' t go Greek because I didn ' t want to live with a bunch of people, " Darin McCarty, Liberal senior, said. Transfer students make up a small number of the Greek pledges. Hibbert, a transfer student from Dodge City Community College, said he didn ' t want to be in a pledge class with people who were younger than he was. " When I transferred from a juco to the university, I didn ' t want to be treated like an underclassman because I was already a junior, " Hibbert said. There are independent students who said they don ' t have anything against Greek living, and that Greek life has advantages.

The first function the members participated in was a hot-tub party with Sigma Chi fraternity in August. Deines said that the only other fraternity function was a hillbilly party with Delta Sigma Phi, ’’We did a lot of other things, though, " Deines said, On Sept. 28, members had an open house for their new house mother, Vi Worth.

Members also participated in Homecoming with a float, which they received the Spirit Award for. Founder ' s Day was celebrated Oct. 20, ’We celebrate the day when Delta Zeta was nationally founded, " Deines said. " We had a little ceremony, then we watched a film on the nationals, " she said. A surprise breakfast for the pledges from Formal Rush was the final activity of October. For campus-wide Parents’ Day, Delta Zeta had a Family Weekend. " Our parents went to the game with us, then we all went out for pizza. The next morning we cooked breakfast for them, " Deines said. " In November we also had a pledge move-in, where the actives move out, and the pledges take their places for a weekend, " Deines said. It was Nov. 14 to 16. Dec. 3 was the tree-trimming and in-house Christmas party. On Dec. 6, members and their dates went to the semi- formal supper and dance at the Vagabond.

In February members decorated cakes for Valentine ' s Day and took them to the fraternities, where they serenaded the men. A rush party was included in this activity. The local chapter participated with two chapters from Colorado for a weekend workshop. ’It’s a chance for us to get together, " Deines said. Deines said the chapter had a successful year.

It was a moment I will always cherish, because it meant I was finally a part of Alpha Gamma Delta, " Begnoche said. February was time for the secret sweetheart valentine party. The girls drew each other ' s names and had to find dates for the people they drew. The girls and their dates went roller skating.

" Formal rush was during the first week of September. We gained seven pledges from it, " Katie Haag, sorority adviser, said. " For the rest of the year, we had informal rush, where girls were invited over to see the house and learn what Sigma Sigma Sigma is about, " Haag said. Haag said that around 10 new members were pledged through informal rush. During the course of the year, Tri Sigs had activities that involved the members ' parents and alumni, In November, the women participated in Dad ' s Weekend. Members ' fathers were invited to Hays to attend a football game and do other activities with their daughters. In April, a similar activity was held for mothers on Mom ' s Weekend. Haag said both events went well. The alumni are invited to as many of the activities as possible, Haag said, and some events are scheduled just for the alumni, such as the formal Christmas dinner members had. On May 3, the alumni had the Senior Send-On for the graduating members. " The alums give a ceremony in honor of the graduates, " Haag said. The senior picnic was May 1 1 at the Swinging Bridge Park. The pledges put on a dance for the actives in November for the fall informal. In May, the formal dinner and dance took plaoe at the Vagabond. " Formal was originally scheduled for March 28, but we moved it to May 9 because of the snowstorms, " Haag said. On April 26 members invited their parents to t he Bijou for a formal dinner honoring Founders ' Day of Sigma Sigma Sigma. Weekly meetings were on Monday nights for all the actives, who are required to live in the house, and the pledges. Every Sunday night members worked at the Bingo House.

They had a party in the country for the K-Staters. Mother ' s Day was on Oct. 4. The men invited their mothers for the day, They served dinner and put on skits for them. " The mothers were educated on liability rules and other rules, " Murphy said. The men participated in Greek Week and finished third overcfll. They also had a " Slave Sale " at the Brass Rail for a fundraiser. The members and the Little Sigmas, the Sigma Chi little sisters, were auctioned off. " We had a real good turnout, " Murphy said.

" I ' m just a channel between the Sigma Chi chapter and the Little Sigmas, " Depperschmidt said. " The Little Sigmas have their own officers and have meetings every other week at the (Sigma Chi) house. " Depperschmidt said the more than 30 Little Sigmas help the fraternity members with fund raisers including their annual food drive, slave auctions, recreational games and Derby Days, in which the money earned is sent to a school in Glenfield, Colo., to aid handicapped kids. Depperschmidt said the little sisters have been more than just co-workers on the fund raisers, " They ' ve been really good friends. The real reason behind the Little Sigmas is to create new lines of friendship between the brothers of the fraternity, " he said, " Each semester, a guy chooses a little sister. She is someone he can go have a Coke with, or just another friend to talk to. Usually, they ' re pretty close, but it varies per individual, " he said. Sarah Folsom, Hays sophomore, is a transfer student from the University of Kansas. She and a friend became Little Sigmas after playing a practical joke on the Sigma Chis one night.

Folsom said that there were lights on at the Alpha Kappa Lambda house and the Sigma Chi house. She said they stopped at the AKL house first, but when the party got boring, the two walked across the street to the Sigma Chi house, hoping to find another party. " We told the guy at the door that we wanted to talk to Darren Holiday. It was just a name we made up, " she said. " They got out old composites and called campus information trying to find this guy for us, " Folsom said. " They finally let us in, and we told them what we had done. We stayed ' till five in that morning. " Folsom said that she and her friend received invitations to become little Sigmas the next day. " It ' s a lot different here than at KU because everybody knows each other, " she said. Folsom ' s big brother is Kevin Lawson, Hays senior. Folsom said that she did little things for him all semester like taking fruit to him when he was sick. She said they went out to eat a few times, and he sent her cards and flowers. " I’ll be back at KU next year, and Kevin will be living in Kansas City, " she said. " We have already made plans to get together.

" We have 100 percent participation from all 32 members, " Craig Karlin, Oakley junior, said. Karlin is the fraternity president. The men of the fraternity helped with Special Olympics and donated blood to the Blood Mobile. During the blizzard that hit the area, they helped the Army Air National Guard feed stranded cattle in area counties. Sigma Phi Epsilon has adopted a " Dry Rush " program. " It ' s working good so far and I think it is a better rush without alcohol, " Karlin said. Karlin said he was very pleased with the rushing. They activated 19 pledges, which is one of the largest pledge classes they have had for awhile. The fraternity tries to help out and include the alumni as much as they can. " We invite alumni to attend formal dinner at the house. We have also shoveled snow for them and have helped fix fence for them, " Karlin said, bv Tricia Holmberg SIGMA PHI EPSILON. ROW I Richard P.

Members said that the house where members used to live was becoming run-down, and expenses of managing it were too high. “It was falling apart, really, " Todd Poage, president, said. " Plus the house we bought is closer to campus, so it ' s handier. " During second semester, the members started a renovation project on their garage. They redid it into a party house, " We tried to keep the cost of it low, and just use materials and things we already had, " he said. He added that the new facility saves on " wear and tear " on the house. Another renovation was recognized when the chapter was awarded the Highest Active GPA for the fall semester at the all-Greek banquet. " Its been at least three semesters since we had the award, so its kind of a change for us, " Poage said. Delta Sigma Phi was active in the homecoming festivities. Their float won the President’s Award. They also sponsored a booth at Oktoberfest, and the nine fall pledges sold sweatshirts and T-shirts comemorating the weekend. The chapter also hosted three fundraising events. Members donated time to unloading boxes of Girl Scout cookies at North American Van Lines, Another project was painting curb signs in Hays. Members also sold raffle tickets for a video cassette recorder. " We took part in the March of Dimes Walk America, for our national philanthropy, and our Delta Sig chapter raised the most money in this region, " Poage said. by Kristy Love AM ambers, ol Della Sigma: Phi Install their Greek: letters on Iheli new house.

The sweethearts, whose membership is almost 40 members strong, started the year helping their big brothers with the annual homecoming float and Oktoberfest activities. Homecoming was a good way for both the Delta Sig pledges and little sister pledges to get to know the actives better. During Oktoberfest the organization sold shirts and bratwurst to make some extra money. Also in October there was a Halloween party, and the sweethearts found out who their big brothers were. The big brothers gave their little sisters hints throughout the week so they could try to figure out who their big brothers were. The girls participated in Gangster Days, a fundraising activity sponsored by the men, Teams of women are picked up by the Delta Sigs and held captive until ransom of canned goods is paid, The canned goods are given to the Ecumenical Center, Sixth and Elm Street, and are then distributed to needy families. A surprise breakfast for the men brought the sweethearts together in the dark of a winter morning to fry bacon and eggs at the Delta Sig house. The little sisters arrived at 6 a.m. early one November morning to fix their big brothers a nutritious breakfast before the beginning of another day of classes. The sweetheart pledges were activated on the same day as the Christmas party. After the initiation, the men and women went back to the fraternity house for DELTA SIGMA PHI SWEETHEARTS.

Gifts were exchanged betweeen the sweethearts and their big brothers. Sailers Ball, the fraternity pledges ' annual dance, was the first event girls attended after prospective members were pledgred. This provided a good time for all and allowed actives to get to know the pledges better, members said. The spring semester brought the annual Valentines Dance, which the Sweethearts hosted for their big brothers. A lot of work was invested in the Valentine’s dance, and everyone attending had to wear either red or white to the dance. The annual Carnation Ball, on May 2 consisted of a formal dinner at the Bijou and then the dance at the Elks Lodge. This made everyone realize that the end of another school year was close at hand. " It was fun because all of the Delta Sigs and little sisters were together one last time before summer vacation. It was just one big party, " Mary Weber, Ellis freshman, said. The last event for the year was a picnic on May 9. by Kim Konkel Little Sisters Tau Kappa Epsilon returns as largest fraternity on campus They finally came back in full force. The Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity once again has been organized on campus after being absent for eight years. The TKEs owe their reorganization to Dennis Perry of the TKE national chapter. Perry came to Hays at the invitation of the Interfraternity Council to recruit and organize members. He ran advertisements in The University Leader for prospective members and formed a base group. Rush functions were organized to create a response, which it did as over 50 young men became active members. Perry interviewed each of the new actives and appointed officers. He also gave each TKE a nickname. organization on campus. " Everhart (Easy) assumed a position by appointment also. Not only is he Officer in Charge of Housing and Activities, but he is assistant to the president, better known as Adj-Prytnis. TKE was the first fraternity to be organized on the campus in 1941. By spring of 1978 the membership dwindled to under 15. When school took up again the next fall only four members returned. The chapter folded because of this low membership. The TKE house, at 406 West Eighth St., was sold, and the funds were entrusted to the Board of Trustees, Herb Songer, associate dean of students, remembers when the chapter folded. He said he is pleased with their return. " Every new member is given a nickname because of convenience and I think it’s more personal, " Perry said. " I tend to remember nicknames a little better. The name could already exist, or they could remind me of someone I ' ve seen on television. They ' re just fun names. " Easy, Rocky, Fletch, Bugger, Jello, Pudding, General, Odie, Gomer, and Gumby are just a few of the new names Perry assigned. Scott Carlson, Salina senior, received the name Fletch. He sold the Leader ad to Pe rry and was accused of " sneaking in the back door” just as Chevy Chase was caught doing in the movie " Fletch " . Not only was Carlson christened Fletch, he was appointed to the Office of the Prytanis, better known in layman terms as President. " Two years ago I said I wouldn’t join a fraternity and here I am now, president of one of the largest on campus, " Carlson stated. " Part of the reason 1 joined now was because at the end of our policy manual it states that if you are ever required to do anything not stated in the policy you get your money back. There is no personal servitude and no hazing. You won ' t be asked to do anything which could embarrass you, " he said. " I also joined because the base group isn’t required to pledge. I get to be part of starting something, being one of the first charter members, " he said. Jeff Everhart, Wellington junior, expressed the same sentiments. " I wasn ' t going to join a fraternity when I came here, I knew some TKEs at K-State, and when the opportunity arose here I decided to join. I wanted to be involved and be a part of starting the best " I am the TFC adviser so I cannot show favoritism, but I think this new group seems to be energetic and organized. Im impressed with their progress in such a short time, " he said. by Renee Baldridge ACindy Hinsdale, Liberal freshman and Randy Aklngs, Great Bend sophomore, dance the night away at the all Greek dance sponsored by the TKEs. {Photo bv Cairo!!

" We’re making progress, " Reiter said. Epsilon of Clovia is one of three cooperative housing facilities nationwide for girls who were members of 4- H, FHA, Kayettes, or similar organizations. The members of the Hays branch planned a full calendar of events to provide a social life for each of the members. Rush was conducted the first week in September. “We notify girls, then bring them over to show them the house. We have games like a scavenger hunt with the rushees, " Reiter said. After rushing, the girls have to learn facts about the house in order to pledge. Clovia participated in Oktoberfest by selling apple dumplings at a booth and by making a float for the homecoming parade, Reiter said. The next activity members had was Punkin Party for Halloween. " We all wear costumes, and get together with our brother floor, Wiest A-section , " Reiter said. For campus-wide Parents Day, Clovia sponsored a lunch for the parents of its members. " It ' s a good time for them to meet each other and see the house, " Reiter said. A Secret Santa gift exchange and decorating the house highlighted the Christmas activities at Epsilon of Clovia. In the spring, members attended a national meeting with the two other houses, " This year we met in Manhattan (Kan.) to take care of national business, " Reiter said. Beta of Clovia is located at Kansas State University. The other cooperative house is located in Minnesota. The spring formal is called the Talisman ' s Ball. The members and their dates went to the Ramada Inn for supper and a dance. In April, members participated in Derby Days. " Fraternity guys coach teams from each sorority, " Reiter scad. Traditionally, the events include an egg- throwing contest and a chugging contest. " They ' re just silly events. We dress one coach from each team up as a woman, and the team that has the prettiest coach wins, " Reiter said, Reiter said money from the beer the girls drank during the contests, pennies and pop cans collected by participants and the mark-up from the shirts contestants wore went to the Wallace County Village Inn, which is a county home for retarded and handicapped people. Underclassmen had a brunch for the seniors, a traditional spring event. “We honor the seniors and say farewell. There is a meal and an exchange of gifts, " Reiter said. Each Monday members have a formal dinner and meeting. " We have guests once in a while, like all our advisers and heads of the university, " Reiter said. There are nine officers in Epsilon of Clovia. Reiter said officers are elected right before semester break in December. " That way, the old officers are usually still in the house so they can help break in the new officers. We think that ' s a lot better system where they have someone here who can help, " Reiter said. by Kristy Love ACharity Whitney, Sharon Springs freshman, studies for one ot her classes, {Photo by Photo Lab) Epsilon of Clovia The Interfratemity Council is the governing body of the social fraternity council represented by all the fraternities on campus, They are Alpha Kappa Lambda, Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma Chi, and Tau Kappa Epsilon, The sponsor for the council is Herb Songer. Each house is represented by at least two counselors. There are nine members in the organization. " I think the chapters are a lot closer now than they were two or three years ago, We have a lot more unity, It is still competitive, but competitive in a constructive way, " David Herl, IFC president, said. The Interfratemity Council helped the Panhellenic Council sponsor an all-Greek banquet in the fall and spring semesters. In the fall " Outstanding Pledge " was awarded to Eric Jontra, Longton junior, a member of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity. Outstanding Chapter GPA for actives was the Sigma Chi fraternity, and the Outstanding Chapter GPA for pledges was the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, At the spring banquet, the outstanding chapter GPA for pledges was the Sigma Chi fraternity. The outstanding GPA for actives was the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity. Outstanding Greek Man was also awarded. This year it was a tie between Don Hager, Scott City senior and Sigma Chi member, and Paul Nelson, WaKeeney senior from Sigma Phi Epsilon, " We try to get the sororities and fraternities together to give recognition to outstanding Greek people, " Herl said. " There are a lot more friendships being formed now. I think we ' ve had a lot of outstanding people to work with, " he said. " I think the attitude among the fraternities has improved a lot during this year,” Herl said.

Elections are also as different and unique as the individuals who make them work by voting. At the university, there are more than 90 organizations, clubs, honorary and academic societies, religious and social groups and resi- dence halls all of which hold elections of sorts to choose officers.

To the contrary, BACCHUS, an alcohol awareness group, fol- lows a constitution set up by the national chapter. The candidates are nominated and self- nominated for a one- year term, and the vote is taken informally by a show of hands. The Cadet Club uses the more traditional secret ballot by which all members run for offices. The Society for Collegiate Journalists, an honorary society, also uses a secret ballot to vote on selfno- minated candidates. The officers are usually upper classmen chosen for their leadership ability and qualifi- cations. The Ecumenical Chris- tian Ministries, a religious organization, accep ts informal nomi- nations from people in the community, as well as students. The vote is taken by concensus, according to the Rev. David Brookman.

Like other societies, it is an elite group of people who meet monthly, " We participate in different capacities by touring local high schools, bringing in speakers and spon- soring the fall business conference, " Sandra Rupp, Pi Omega Pi sponsor, said. Its biggest project is the designing of a bulletin board for each area in business. Another active hono- rary organization is Delta Tau Alpha, an agriculture society. Speakers pertaining to agriculture were brought in once a month. These sessions were open to the public, Shawn Martin, Salina junior, said the main function of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, is to promote music as much as possible, not only for the university, but for the Hays area. " Every fall we promote an Ameri can music recital. Works by American music com- posers are performed for an audience, " Martin said, Not only is there a certain amount of knowledge enhance- ment involved in honor societies, but also community service. Epsilon Pi Tau, a professional fraternity for industrial education majors, took to the drawing board to design and make desk pen sets. It also participated in a rock- a-thon for cystic fibrosis and helped wrapping Toys for Tots. " Being in Epsilon Pi Tau puts you ahead in your profession, " secretary Bryan Urban, Hays senior, said, Alpha Lambda Delta is a national society that honors high scholastic achieve- ment in the first year of college. A student must have a 3.5 grade point average or above to be a member. Alpha Lambda Delta helped with the alumni booth during Ok- toberfest. The society has an annual banquet with Phi Eta Sigma, another honorary group, during the spring.

Groups implement special tactics, strategies At the beginning of each semester, stu- dents receive fliers in the mail and phone calls from organiza- tions. The campus is flood- ed with posters as organizations look for new members. There are many reasons why organi- zations recruit mem- bers each semester.

" That ' s not just student teachers that join before they start to student teach, " Jar- nagin said. “They want to become a larger organ- ization and broaden their membership, " she said. The Alumni As- sociation uses a different approach to attract new members, It mails letters to freshmen and transfer students in the summer and again in December to interest prospective members. It also advertises a membership party that it has at the beginning of the fall semester. The Mortar Board has a more complicated membership drive. The drive begins in January. Letters are sent out announcing a membership meeting. Letters are only sent to students with a grade point average of 3.0 or above. " This year, our membership drive helped out quite a bit. We did get some new members, " Melinda Keim, co-sponsor, said. " Last year we had 1 5 to 20 members, and this year we nave 25-30, so we ' ve increased, " Tami Fields, president, said. " A problem that we ' ve had in the past is people who’ve been members and paid their dues, but never came. This year, we ' ve increased in that way, too, " Fields said. At the meeting, the prospective members are given applications that ask for two refer- ences, among other things. The would-be Mortar Board members also receive information about the organiza- tion ' s purpose. Then a committee reviews the appli- cations and contacts the students ' refer- ences. The students who are admitted to Mortar Board are part of an elite group. Out of the approximately 250 letters mailed, only 45 new members are chosen. Most organizations on campus have meetings at the be- ginning of each semes- ter to let students know more about their organization. Some have adver- tisements in news- papers, booths in the student union, and membership picnics to encourage new mem- bers. |v] by Lynn Werner VGosh, oh gee, she ' s an Alpha Gam gtrr s£ng members ol the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority to potential pledges at a rush party.

For Kamala Hinnergardt, Dodge City senior, and Dee Jantz, Hutchinson senior, being president of an organization has turned into a rewarding experience. Hinnergardt is pre- sident of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. Hinnergardt said at first she did not even give the presidency a second thought. She said she did not want to do it, because she had no past experience in being a leader, never having been an officer in a club in high school. Finally, Susan Brad- ley, outgoing presi- dent, talked her into running for the office. She reinforced Hinner- gardt ' s decision by telling her that she was capable of the pres- idency. Through her expe- rience as president, Hinnergardt said she has gained valuable experience in leader- ship. " I have learned how to communicate with people better, and to see everyone ' s posi- tions. I had to learn to remain neutral, which can be extremely difficult. " Hinnergardt said. Hinnergardt said she has also gained patience and many friends through her office. She said she has had to let them run their own office without her inter- ference, in order for everything to run smoothly. For Jantz, leadership meant a new form of responsibility as well. Jantz is Sigma Alpha Iota president and senior adviser of Phi Eta Sigma. Jantz said she was never involved until she came to college here. She said she enjoys being in charge. " It ' s very rewarding, " Jantz said. Jantz said her leadership roles have helped her gain- patience and to have respect for others who are under her. She said she has great organ- izations to work with. Jantz said she has complete confidence in her group, because they all get along together, which helps.

Community members contact the alturism chairman of the sorority for help and support. “I would say nine David Sweat, Cedar senior, and Ron Hallner, Park senior, take advantage ol refreshments at the Industrial Arts Hamburger Feed, (Photo by Jean Walker) A The girl scouts enjoy themselves at the GJrl Scout Fair sponsored by the International Student Union. {Photo by Don King) times out of 10 our sorority will be available to help out, " Kamala Hinnergaidt, president, said. The group has helped with water conser- vation by handing out water-conserving pac- kets door to door around Hays. They have also helped with the community’s haunted houses around Halloween. During elections the girls have helped at the voting areas. The members have gained much aware- ness about the various community projects in Hays by being involved as much as possible. Hinnergardt said. Sigma Alpha Iota, an honorary music group, keeps very busy year round with community projects, The organization sings and gives pro- grams to the nursing homes. The most popular community project it has for the entire community is a wedding program it gives at a local church in Hays each year, Dee Jantz, president, said. The group sings a variety of wedding songs for the audience, usually engaged coup- les, The couples can choose the songs that they would like at their weddings. There are also wedding gowns modeled that are ready to be chosen. The program is completed with the traditional cake for the audience to enjoy, The program is set up to give ideas to plan out a wedding. The program has proven to be very popular . " There ' s al- ways a good turnout, and everyone seems to have a good time,” Jantz said. The Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity has also been involved with the community regularly, It is usually con- tacted by the com- munity requesting help and support. ,The group helps with Meals on Wheels in town. " We pick up the meals at St. Anthony Hospital and then deliver the meals. It is a learning experience, " Scott Moore, president, said, The group also helped the hospital by moving files to a different budding, Moore enjoys par- ticipating in the Alpha Kappa Lambda frater- nity projects helping the community. " Every- one can feel proud that we help the people who need our help, " Moore said. by T ricia H olmberg_ Kim Alexander, McPherson nursing student, presents a program on home safety for children at the Tiger Tot Nursery, (Photo by Photo Lab) Community Projects -Alovkol LcmM Laws result in change of policy There Is a new sense of responsibility con- cerning alcohol among the members of fraternities and so- rorities. The change comes from national legis- lation. According to this legislation. Greek houses can now be held liable for accidents had by people who have consumed alcohol at a fraternity or sorority party. This has caused a change of the ‘good time " practices at the seven Greek houses at the university. Darin Cooper, Oakley junior and president of Sigma Phi Epsilon, said members of the Sig Eps received information about liability from their national head- quarters in Richmond, Va. The national head- quarters sent out a video tape that tells the story of a Sig Ep house in Nebraska, There was an accident which left one person paralized. The victims had been drinking at a Sig Ep function. " In the film, the victims charged the house president, who tried to blame the social chairman, " Cooper said. Students and parents observed booths oi departments and groups al the University Fair on Ocl 1. (Photo by Jean Walker) Any executive officer may be held liable in cases such as the one in the video. Cooper said. However, he said, the president is usually the first one to receive blame. The chapter coun- selor and alumni members can also be blamed in the case of an accident. " And, if someone gets hurt, they can sue our national headquarters and the chapter where it happened, " Cooper said. Jessica Schmidt, Hays senior and member of Alpha Gamma Delta, said her sorority has also been told its officers can be held liable in the case of accidents. Schmidt attended an Alpha Gam Leadership Conference in Norman, Okla. , last summer . " We were told that if anything happens to a member or their date at an event bearing the name Alpha Gamma Delta, the executive officers could be held liable. That scared us to death. It pushed us to think of things to do where alcohol isn ' t the main thing, " Schmidt said. The Sig Eps have come up with some alternatives to the drinking and driving situation. Along with the video. Cooper received a handbook on legal liability entitled Hiding fhe Multimillion Dollar Parties. The booklet gives several ideas for protecting the chapter and its members, such as a designated driver service, non-alcoholic beverages and an iden- tification check. by Kristy Love A B AC C H US pr omot e s alcohol awareness through distribution of material at the University Fair, (Photo by Jean Walker) N on- traditional students play volleyball with their friends and families, (Photo by Robert Bunting) VX Alcohol Laws RESIDENCE HALL ASSOCIATION.

The club ' s Homecom- ing float brings in most of the money for the year, Shawn McGinnis, president, said. " We ' ve won awards at the parade several times in the past, McGinnis said. Brower said fund- raisers are essential in order to provide activities other than academic ones for students. b y Beverly Strnad APauI Nemath sells plus to raise money lor Alpha Phi Omega at October lest, ( Photo by Don King) Fuy%dioblABiA Skills raise money Raising money for various functions for an organization is the only way a lot of clubs have of surviving. The larger the club, the more money it needs to sustain the club. Several groups receive funds through Student Government Association ' s alloca- tions committee. Most of the clubs, however, have to support their activities with fundraisers. Pi Omega Pi. a business honorary, raises money to send five members and its sponsor to the bi- annual national con- vention. Gwen Poore, Pi O- mega Pi president, said that for many years, Pi Omega Pi has printed letterhead paper to be sold to the students in the school of business. " The letterhead pa- per is used by students mainly in the typing and transcription classes. " Poore said. Coming up with unique fundraisers is crucial to the survival of some organizations. Rodeo Club adviser Gary Brower said that his group has to raise money just to keep the sport of rodeo alive. Providing shelter and medicines for practice stock and student ' s horses, general upkeep and maintainance of the university rodeo arena and team travel expenses are the biggest financial burd- ens of the Rodeo Club. Brower said. Each year the Rodeo Club organizes an auction of items donated by various Hays businesses and rodeo boosters. The club also sponsors an invita- tional rodeo each fall. Jackpot team ropings and barrel races open to anyone are other ways the Rodeo Club has of raising money. The Geology Club, like several other organizations, takes advantage of the mon- ey-making possibilities at Oktoberfest. The group had a booth where members sold German sausages. It also sold polished, cut rocks and unus- ually shaped rocks that are not found in this area. The money it raises goes towards buying much-needed equip- ment for the geology department, Laurie Lindsay, Geology Club secretary, said. “Last year study tables and a camp stove were bought to go on field camp, " Lindsay said.

Jeff Van Hellzen, Gurnee, 111., graduate student, said he thought the trip helped him gain better under- standing of the United Nations. " We got a real understanding of how the real United Nations works, " Van Hellzen said. The conference con- sisted of speakers and simulated General As- sembly, Security Coun- cil and . International Court of Justice. While the 22 students and two sponsors who attended the conference from the university were -Fleldr-P dpi Trips reinforce classroom work there, they took ad- vantage of the sights in St. Louis. The group ' s Angolian delegation also won an award for the General Assembly. Field trips are funded in a variety of ways. Some receive assist- ance from Student Government appro- priations. Others have to pay for the trips with organization money or from their own pockets. When a group of six home economic stu- dents went to New York City in January, they had to pay their own ways. " The purpose of the trip was to visit fashion-related busi- nesses and points of interest, " Me rlene Lyman, chairman of the home economics de- partment, said. While there, the group visited the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Metro- AJana Johnson, Sharon Springs junior, makes use ot the Memorial Union ' s bowling facilities at MUAB game night.

Index At last sight -typical student identified Women over 35 are the nation ' s most typical students, according to the National Education Association, According to an article in the NEA Higher Education Advocate, a newsletter for NEA members in higher education, the typical student on the national level is female, 35 years old, works full-time, and studies part- time, At the university, survey results show a different style of the typical student, The typical student here is female. While the men number 2,378, the women number 3,160, Almost half the students on campus are between the ages of 18 and 22, This age group numbers at 2,575, while all of the other ages combined number 2,781 , The majority of students, 3,644, are attending college on a full-time basis, while 1 ,894 students are attending on a part-time basis. The number of students on-campus is 4,395, and the number of those off-campus is 1,143. If a person combined all of the above figures, he would find the typical local university student to be female, between 18 and 22, studying full-time and living in one qf the four residence halls.

New events kept moving into sight For a short time, national media attention focused on Hays, when alumnus Gerald Seib was in the spotlight after his detention and release in Tehran. The search for a successor for President Gerald Tomanek brought candidates from all over the nation to campus. A late winter storm and blizzard-like conditions in In Sigh t 1 March moved the classrooms out of sight for two days as courses were cancelled. A proposal to change the name of Fort Hays State University to the University of Western Kansas stirred up a heated debate and brought to light just how exactly students, faculty and alumni see their university. The name remained, but many things had changed inside in just one year , ' leaving everybody looking forward to the year in sight.

(Photo by Robert Bunting) Closing kFrom OUR Sight " Inside In Sight " is a publication in itself that allows you a quick look at this year ' s highlights. There were so many special moments this year, Remember when the steam locomotive came through Hays? It was certainly a steamy affair when a fire broke out on the fifth floor of McMin- des Hcdl. The resi- dence hall had to be evacuated for one and a half hours. It might not be obvious, but all the improvements taking place on campus follow a detailed plan, It is through the long-term plan that Sheridan Coliseum is being renovated step by step. The expansion of the computer systems on campus is part of the plan, too. Certainly this year brought a lot of fun. Whether you went barhopping or watched a good movie, for everyone there was a " best time " in Hays. Alcohol and drug abuse and AIDS were in the spotlight of news coverage. They were issues that got the campus community involved in the discussion. " Inside In Sight " is a small extra effort from our staff to make the look back at this year more fun. 17 COVER STORY Steam locomotive celebrates Kansas ' 125th birthday, calls back fond memories Some came to watch because a vintage Union Pacific steam engine might never chug into Hays again, and others came in hopes they’d relive memories of their own passenger train excursions. Lynn Werner, Offerle sophomore, waited at the old depot to see the steam engine pull into town. ' Tve ridden a train before but never figured I ' d be able to see an actual steam engine that still ran. It was like seeing a part of history, " Werner said. Three thousand people lined both sides of the tracks on Thursday morning Aug. 28, awaiting the arrival of a steam- powered passenger train, commissioned by Union Pacific to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Kansas statehood. The last Union Pacific steam engine to pull passenger cars through Kansas went by in 1956. That was the year the railroad switched to diesel engines. The 12-car ON THE TRACKS -For one more time, the Kansas Classic was on the road. (Photo by Don King) TRAINED -Steam engine experts are still around. Not so the locomotives. (Photo by Don King) passenger train was delivered to Union Pacific in 1944, The engine was the last steam locomotive built for the Union Pacific . Many onlookers photographed the black engine as it rolled into Hays, and some brought along recording and videotape equipment to make home movies of the event. Those not interested in video or audio souvenirs placed pennies on the tracks to make flat commemorative coins of the occasion, For some, the visit was their first look at a type of locomotive symbolizing the golden railroad years. " I heard that a steam engine was coming to town and went down to see it because it might be the only chance 111 ever have to see one, " Tina Bright, Pawnee Rock senior, said. For others, it was a chance to relive some very fond memories. Lewis Schrader, Hays resident, said, " I remember when I rode on a steam engine with my grandfather and seeing the ' Kansas Special ' made it ail come back to me just like it happened yesterday. " by Janet Schaller In Sight Agnew Hail closed down When the news was out that Agnew Hall would be closed at the end of the fall semester, the residents were sad and upset. After a few weeks though, they had well adjusted to the change. Budget cuts affect campus It did not take long for Republican Gov. Mike Hayden to set his budget-cutting proposals into reality. The university officials were forced to cut three spring sports, men ' s golf, men ' s tennis and women ' s softball . In addition everyday expenses like postage, office supplies and photocopies were cut back in most campus departments. Students love lunch breaks When students go lor lunch breaks, and students at the university say they love to so, it ' s not always McDonald ' s, tho ugh the most famous fast food chain of all is among the favorites. Take a look at Page 9 and find out where students prefer to eat. New drinking laws in effect Alcohol and drugs still made the headlines throughout the year. See how the new Kansas drinking laws affected students and their habits. Other Inside stories: Those and many more stories are Inside In Sight, On Pages 6 and 7, you can take a look back at what was “in " this year. The Christmas season brought some of the best movies of the year like Startrek IV . The release of Bruce Springsteen’s 40-song album was highly anticipated. And there was a lot more going on in the music and film scene. Look for the best times people had this year on Pages 1 2 and 1 3 . Whether you enjoyed sitting in your room and eating chocolate like Stacy Shaw, Hays senior, or whether you enjoyed going to a local bar like many others, for everyone there was a best time to remember. TALK Every year has its specific per- sonality. How people look back at a year de- pends on per- sonal matters as well as the environment they live in. Students expressed a unique blend of opinions when asked how the year looked to them in review. " Mediocre " -Carl Rieman, Norton junior " Chilling. " -Ty Herrington, Kanopolis grad, student " Full of ex- perience. " -Rizwan Khan, Manhattan senior " Revolutionary. " -Wayne Laugesen, Hanover senior " Disappointing. " -Debbie Bunnell, Landor, Wyo„ junior " Unforgettable, " -David Anderson, Winfield grad, student " This was by far my worst semester, except I did get good grades. " -Kim Dodiill, Hoisington senior SHERIDAN RENOVATION It s all part of the plan The renovation of Sheridan Coliseum is only the first step in a series of projects aimed at the improving the campus facilities. The buildings ' long- term plan foresees projects reaching from a renovation of Picken Hall to the installment of a chilling station. But buildings are not the only area the university is planning for. A similar long-term plan calls for computer training for faculty and staff, updating of equipment and a wide-branched system of terminals all over campus. FACELIFT NEEDED -Sheridan Coliseum ' s renovation started in spring, (Photo by Don King) Sheridan Sheridan renovation moves toward reality; building to be fully operational by 1990 The fall semester had been one huge fund drive for those concerned with the renovation of the Sheridan Coliseum. At semester break, thedrivefor $2 million in private funds had been about $400,000 short of its goal. When the goal was reached, the state of Kansas would add $4 million to the renovation project. That incentive kept everyone going. “We are not stopping until we have $400,000, " Ron Pflughoft, vice president for development and university relations, had said in December. The actual renovation, turning Sheridan Coliseum into a performing aits center, finally began in late spring. The project is expected to be completed by 1990. Pflughoft said Sheridan will not have the largest performing arts center in the Regents system but thinks it will be one of the largest and certainly one of the best. " We feel real good about what we are doing. Not only will we have an excellent facility, but we will be preserving a historical landmark, " Pflughoft said. The university started several projects to raise money. One of these was the sponsorship of seats. Each seat in the coliseum could be sponsored for $500. At Christmas, the university mailed 5,000 cards to the members of the Alumni Association encouraging seat sponsorship. The fund drive received a major boost when Dr. Emil Childers, chairman of the Founders of Doctor ' s Hospital Foundation in Tulsa, Okla., donated $ 100 , 000 . The renovation of Sheridan is the first project in the " Five and 10 Year Capital Improvement Plan. " Following the completion of Sheridan Coliseum, the plan foresees a renovation of Picken and Albertson Hall and construction of a north campus chilling station. ilih. by Bettina Heinz COMPUTERS ON CAMPUS Federal grant allows computerization; electronic mail included in long-term plan AUTOMATIC EFFICIENCY -Free access to more terminals also means the chance to hand in clean, easily edited papers. (Photo by Robert Bunting) It ' s high-tech expansion taking place on campus. A five-year grant makes the con- tinuous com- puterization possible. The Federal Title III grant is annually renewable and if funding for all five years is granted, the grant amounts to $1 ,8 million. " With the current cuts. I ' m not sure the grant is going to last five years. We are now in Year 3, " Keith Faulkner, computing center director, said. So far, a work station in the Forsyth Library has been installed, which is a terminal that is tied to the main computer in the center. In addition to that, a micro-computer classroom lab and a micro-computer system English lab program have been added, as well as more terminals available for students. The next projects in the computer long- term plan are micro- computer labs for tire business and the mathematics de- partments. If the grant would actually be renewed for each of tire five years, the campus would look quite changed at the end of Year 5, according to Faulkner. " At the end of Year 5, there would be work stations in every academic and administrative office. Everybody would have better and more timely access to data. The main thrust of the grant is to allow better decision- making, " Faulkner said. Another element of the plan, electronic mail, sounds a little futuristic, but would turn out to be an efficient budgeting tool, Faulkner said. " It ' s a little new and different, I don ' t know if everyone will participate. But tire giant demands a lot of training, and that way we could get rid of the fear factor, " Faulkner said. Through electronic mail, people could send messages via terminal from one office to another. Secretaries could set up meetings by calling up tire participants agendas and scheduling them for a time when all of them have a free time slot. Bettina Heinz COMPU-CAMPUS -For many students the additional terminals in Forsyth Library mean an easier way ol linding research material. (Photo by Robert Bunting) MCMINDES ON FI RE Hall in It was " fairly extensive damage” that occured to a room on tilth floor west in McMindes Hall on Saturday, Nov, 15, Other rooms on that floor and two other floors also received damage through water and smoke, amounting to $7,000 in damage. An unwatched candle in the room of Joslyn Mahin, Colby freshman and residence hall assistant, was the cause of the fire, McMindes Hall director Mike Ediger said he didn ' t think the fact that it was a resident hall assistant ' s room made any difference. “It makes no difference to me that it was the room of a residence hall assistant. I ' d hate to see it start anywhere,’’ Ediger said. Residents reported smoke coming from the room to the resident manager on duty. Before calling the Hays Fire Department, Holly Barger, resident manager, tried to put the fire out with a hand-held extinguisher. The hall was evacuated at that time. Ediger said he didn ' t know about the fire until he heard the alarm sirens of the fire trucks. “I was at Agnew when I heard the fire trucks. I was concerned that the building had to be evacuated, concerned how extensive the fire was, " Ediger said. The Hays Fire Department arrived at the scene at about 4:50 p.m., according to Wayne Schwartz, chief of the fire department, Some residents complained the fire alarm in McMindes did not go off until the trucks were already there. Ediger said the alarm went off in time, " It was pulled as soon as they knew of the fire. Our alarm signal is not continuous, but interrupted by breaks. When the trucks came, the alarm was on, but on break at that mo ment Ediger said. According to Ediger there was no university in- vestigation into the incident , by Bettina Heinz FIRE ALARM -A Kays firefighter shovels debris from a fifth floor McMindes Hall room.

(Photo by Don King) AGNEW HALL CLOSED DOWN Forced to close down At the end of September, rumors about the possible closing down of either Agnew or Custer Hall were spread, but when the final decision was made, it still came as a shock to Agnew Hall residents. “Really it did come kind of unexpected. They had told us Tuesday, October 7, that they might close down either Agnew or Custer, and then they told us the next day that it was Agnew. We were sad and down, " Barbara Buch- holz, former Agnew Hall director, said. According to Jim Nugent, director of housing, closing Agnew was not an easy decision to make, but economy forced the housing department to that decision. “We reached the decision to close Agnew as a financial, an economical move. There were only 34 girls living in Agnew and we couldn ' t afford to keep it open, " Nugent said. The number of residents was not the only reason to close Agnew Hall. “In Agnew, we are heating a larger area than in Custer. Also, Custer Hall ' s plumbing and wiring is better, " Nugent said, Some of the Agnew students moved into Custer Hall; some moved into McMindes Hall, where they were offered a floor to themselves. Four students moved off campus, and four graduated at the end of the fall semester anyway. In November, Buchholz was named Custer Hall director. The position had become vacant because Chris Riedel, former Custer Hall director, had accepted a job offering as industrial arts teacher in Kansas City. The closing of Agnew might not have solved the residence hall problem. If the number of students in Custer and McGrath keeps going down, the housing department might have to consider closing them down this summer. " As of now, we plan to count the contracts for those halls on July 1 to determine whether we can keep these halls open or not. " Nugent said. bv Bettina Heinz DESERTED -Agnew Hall has lost Its residents. Economy forced the housing department to close down tne all-female hall at semester break, {Photo by Robert Bunting) Agnew residents express distress " I really didn ' t like it. I figured it was something they had to do. It was sad to see it closed; I was kind of upset. Then I figured I had only one semester left anyway. Now, I feel p retty much at home in Custer. " -Paula Hom- mertzheim, Valley Center senior “I was upset. I thought it was kind of a dirty trick. It was sad, disappointment more than anything. But now I feel at home in Custer, I really do. I like the people here. They do a lot more stuff together than Agnew did. " -Michelle Ratzloff, Buhler freshman " One opinion I hear a lot is that the girls think the housing office should make decisions like that in the summer, so people can make the decision whether they are going to live on campus or not, and in which residence hall ahead of time, instead of having to do it again in the middle of the year. " -Barbara Buchholz, former Agnew Hall director Agnew TOP BOOKS AND FILMS The stars of ’ 86 87 At semester break, magazine and radio charts came out with the top stars and best- selling hits of 1986. Based on their findings and general trends, we offer you here a look back at what was " in " in enter- tainment at the turn of the year. But it is not only the best of entertainment one usually remembers. Often, it is the worst that sticks in one’s memory. Look at the sidebar lor the worst media productions of the year, like the " Dallas " dream which appeared more like a night- mare to faithful " Dallas " fans. CHECK IT OUT -Ed Schwab, Oberlin special student, rents a video from Gretchen Thompson, Hays sophomore, at a local video store. (Photo by Don King) The book of the year certainly was Stephen King ' s best seller " It, " He received a $3 million advance for the novel, as opposed to the $2500 he received as advance for his first novel, " Carrie. " For a book that tops 1100 pages, the pace is rarely slowed down by extra verbiage. There is this malevolent force that hangs over the small but booming city of Derry, Maine, Not only is the homicide rate here higher than in Manhattan, every 26 years a rash of spooky deaths occur, Other top sellers were Bill Cosby ' s " Fatherhood " and Jane Seymour ' s " Jane Seymour ' s Guide to Romantic Living. " An excerpt from Cosby ' s book : " I guess the real reason that my wife and I had children is the same reason that Napoleon [invaded] Russia: it seemed like a good idea at tire time. " ■ ■ ' ■• " -? » ’ •? » r " Moonlighting " did not only start out on a good note, it kept attracting a large audience all year long. It was a good year for stars Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd, Shepherd won the Star of the ' 80s Award from the Hollywood Press Club and appeared on many magazine covers. So did Don Johnson , who enjoyed long- lasting popularity. " Crime Story " proved successful in its new Friday slot, convincing through Dennis Farina ' s acting skills rather than his looks. Vanessa Redgrave gave an authentic dramatic per- formance in " Second Serve, " the TV bio of transsexual tennis star Renee Richards, Michael J, Fox remained a and so did Vanna White. But the surprise was only complete when Donna Mills appeared in a bear suit to sell Sun Country Coolers, TOP MOVIES AND MUSIC COOL GUV -Martha Scott, overland Park junior, debates whether to see Eddie Murphy in " The Golden Child. " (Photo by Don King) Most magazines differed in what they picked as the song of 1986, but they all agreed on Whitney Houston as the top artist. Her 85 album wan an armful of awards and kept spinning out hits . Janet Jackson also advanced as a favorite, but it was the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, who called the shots with the release of his album " Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Live 197 5-85. " Phil Collins kept producing hits, both solo and with Genesis. Top song of 1986 was " Stuck with You " by Huey Lewis and the News, followed by " Papa Don’t Preach " by Madonna and Prince ' s " Kiss, " Apart from that, almost anything by the Bangles reached popularity. Madonna who keeps working on her image came out with a new makeover, making her tire queen of pop divas. In Kansas, " The Heat " reached more than local fame. t ' c 0 c ADMIT ONE f T I Movies Before the Christmas season hit, " Aliens " was considered the hot movie of 1986. followed by " Ruth- less People. " Many remembered Bette Middler ' s line, Tm being marked down?.,. I ' ve been | kidnapped by K mart] " I from " Ruthless , People. " " About last night, " “Blue Velvet, " and “Raw Deal " were top movies. " You shouldn ' t drink und bake, " Arnold Schwarzen- egger said to Blanche Baker in " Raw Deal. " And " why are there people like Frank in the world? " Kyle MacLachlan asked in " Blue Velvet. " But with the Christmas season, Startrek IV came as an early present and swept the audience. Directed by Leonard Nimoy, Startrek IV brought back a slightly confused Spock, adding refreshening humor. Eddie Murphy came back with " The Golden Child,” surprising the audience that found itself caught in suspense rather than in mere laughter. " An American Tcol,” an animated movie depicting the troublesome journey of a mouse, attracted people of all ages to the movies. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the movie was sure to be a success before it came out. The spring brought a new sequence to " Beverly Hills Cop, " starring Eddie Murphy again. The worst of ' 86 87 The worst soap opera plot twist of the year was certainly the " Dallas " dream, turning the idea into a nightmare for executive producer Leonard Katzman. The biggest movie failure was " Pirates, " produced at a cost of $35 million. It earned $2 million at the box office. The most expensive movie of the year, " Howard the Duck, " which cost $50 million, also turned out to be a short-lived theater experience. Actress Tyne Daly displayed a most distrasting make-up at tire Emmys, while Boy George made headlines with his heroine addiction. Michael Jackson ' s occasional attempts at comebacks throughout the year often did not trigger more than a grin. Among other changes, he underwent plastic surgery on his chin, promoted sleeping in an high-oxygen chamber and licensed various items with his name. While MTV got ready to expand and broadcast in Europe, the MTV awards at home were occa- sionally referred to as " the worst party of the year. " Movies-Music CUTTING THE BUDGET Money too tight to mention Hayden ' s 3.8 percent cuts across the board were felt immediately at the university. Every budgetary unit at the university had to cut back and think of ways to save money and material. In some instances, only drastic measures seemed effective. Gov. Mike Hayden did not wait long before taking action and setting his plans into reality. In the first week of December, Hayden announced the Regents system had to cut a total of $12.1 million, which is 3.8 percent of its total budget. As a result, every budgetary unit at the university had to take cuts and save money. The cuts included a $452,803 pro- portional reduction to the university ' s other operating expense monies and a $30,000 reduction within the com- puting center, Some departments and administrative offices which had to postpone purchases were out of paper and other commodities before the spring semester was completed. According to Keith Faulkner, director of the computing center, the center did not cut down on services, but chose to cut the purchase of some equipment. The June summer session also had to be reduced because of the cuts. According to James Murphy, vice president for academic affairs, there had to be a $30,000 decrease in the summer session, resulting in less selection of courses for students. Other areas that suffered cuts included the reduction of a systems analyst for financial aids, $24,440; leave without pay positions suffered a $24,000 loss, and salary restricted accounts were cut by $15,000. Research grant monies, reduction of unfilled graduate assistants and the off-campus work Source: Division of the Budget Total cuts: $59.7 million Other departments $5.2 million Revenue Department $1.2 million Corrections $2.2 million Judiciary $1.6 million study program suffered cuts resulting in $10,000 each, The toll-free number to the university had $7,000 cut from its budget. Forsyth Library was probably the first program suffering from budget cuts, By the end of November, Forsyth Library had to cut back its book budget and journal budget. Garry Warren, director of the library, said the budget cuts really hurt, " It ' s going to have a negative impact on us, " Warren said, " The bottom line is it really hurts, " Warren added. The area where students felt the budget cuts the most was probably athletics. The Hayden proposal forced the athletic department to take drastic measures. It was forced to suspend three spring sports to counter- balance the loss of state funding. Men ' s golf, men ' s tennis, and women ' s softball were suspended for the spring season with no date of re- instatement. by Bettina Heinz GRAPH -Cutting the budget was Hayden’s first step. His $59.7 million cuts hurt education the most, followed by social services. Budget Cuts FAVORITE FOOD PLACES In love with lunch MCFAST -McDonald ' s, the probably most famous fast food chain In the world, Is still a favorite among students. (Photo by Robert Bunting) From burgers to chicken and from tacos to pizza, students are truly in love with the idea of fast food restaurants. Over the past two decades, " fast food " has played an important role in the American diet, Almost two out of every five meals eaten take place at fast food restaurants, and the biggest reason why seems to be changing lifestyles. The eating-out boom has especially come to the forefront in the lives of students, where the efficiency and quickness of a burger and fries is usually easier and more economical than doing the cooking themselves. " I don ' t like to cook at all, " Missy Boor, Hays junior, said, " and it is a lot easier for me to just go out and eat. If I stay home to eat, I have to cook the meed and wash the dishes. " In addition to being the quickest and most efficient way to eat, fast food restaurants are also gaining in popularity from a social aspect. KimDodviil, Hoisington senior, occasionally uses her eating time to visit with friends. " With my hectic school schedule and an even tougher work schedule, " Dodvill said, " and to be honest, I enjoy visiting with friends over lunch. " One aspect of fast food restaraunts in Hays that has become extremely popular deals with decreased prices on items for university students. A few of the restaurants, for example, offer discount cards which enable students to save as much as 20 percent on their total bill. But according to Ty Herrington, a Kanopolis graduate student who served a public relations internship with McDonalds, the craze of discount cards and coupons is something that may soon be a thing of the past. " I don’t think students are interested in coupons, cut-outs and coupons, “ Herrington said, " because they get tired of carrying stuff around with them. " Most students want to be able to walk into a restaurant and get a straight across the board price reduction on a combination meal, and I definitely think that will start happening more and more here in Hays, " Herrington said. Naturally, there are those who still enjoy eating at home as opposed to the hustle and bustle of eating out. Mike Marzolf, Glen Elder sophomore, has made a dramatic reversal since moving out of the dormitory he had to live in during his freshman year at college. " I used to eat out because I couldn ' t tell what the food was in the dormitory cafeteria, " Marzolf said, ' but now that I have an apartment to myself, I eat at home almost all the time. “ But the people such as Marzolf seem to be far out- numbered by those such as Boor. Newspaper, radio and television ads are constantly becoming more graphically crttiactive for readers, listeners and viewers, which in the process makes eating out seem to be more attractive. Yes, America is truly in love with fast food. And fast food seems to be just as interested in America. LUNCH TIME -Sheri Lynn, Holslngion senior, and a Iriend are pizza tans.

Opinions on the effect of stricter laws are split among university students. Hays has a reputation across the state as a drinking town. In many instances, the c ity ' s share of a 10 percent tax on liquor by the drink is relatively higher than other cities of comparable population size. Legislators passed stricter laws concerning alcohol. Mandatory seat belt laws, stiller drunk driving penalties and the raising of the legal drinking age in many states are just a few of the changes brought about by pressure from organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving. " I feel the tougher laws are making people of tlris community and others stop and think, but in most cases, just as before tire laws were enacted, it takes a DUI charge to let people know that « WlL ixwrioN L ' l 111 1 ' ’ they can. get caught and will get punished, " Kelli Webb, Tescott sophomore, said, In cooperation with state and local organizations, the Student Health Center offered a DUI seminar in October. It was attended by 50 people from campus and community. The university has tightened its regu- lations concerning alcohol on campus. No beer will be sold on university property, and organizations are prohibited from using their funds to purchase beer or alcoholic beverages off-campus. Campus residents can still consume alcohol. Canned beer with a 3,2 percent alcohol content may be possessed and consumed by students living in areas affiliated with the university if they are of age. " The new policy hasn ' t really affected me that much. I don ' t drink very much end rarely party. But I think if someone really wants to party and drink, he will find a way to get tire liquor, " Jeannine Vaughan, Hays senior, said. by Janet Schaller SOCIAL HABITS -The new drinking laws did not affect the Oktoberfest turnout. More people drank soda or non-alcoholic brews. (Photo by Don King) Students active in prevention of alcohol abuse Some students are actively involved in the alcohol issue through membership in BACCHUS. BACCHUS stands for Boost Alcohol Consc- iousness Concerning University Students. BACCHUS members, drinkers and non- drinkers alike, promote responsible decisions about the use and non-use of alcohol among themselves, friends and the community. The group has over 25 members and had booths at Oktoberfest and the University Fair where they gave away samples of non- alcoholic brew. The group also sponsored National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. Steve Hall, Salina senior and BACCHUS member, said that tire drinking age has increased alcohol awareness among students and doubled the membership in BACCHUS from last year. " We just want to prevent people from getting DUI ' s. We ' re not against drinking but want people to be aware of the pitfalls of drinking too much, " Hall said. DISEASE AIDS Health Center promotes AIDS awareness, education The misinformation within a " hysterical public " must be fought, said the president of the Kansas AIDS network during a session at the university. Dr. William Wade, Topeka, spoke on campus on Oct. 14. The sessions were sponsored by the Student Health Center and the committee on AIDS education. Wade stressed that the main thrust of everyone concerned with AIDS prevention and education was aimed at reeducating a hysterical public. " What we saw early on was lots of hysteria. People were saying ' My God, this is God ' s attempt to destroy and eradicate homosexuals ' ... So there was a lot of hysteri a and misinformation, " Wade said. Wade ' s sessions were only part of the continuing effort of the Student Health Center to promote awareness, AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, the name given to a serious illness that impairs the body ' s ability to fight infections. The center has distributed information at the University Fair and makes information available at the health center. In addition to that, information was mailed to all faculty and staff members. The nurses encourage questions about the disease. " Most people don ' t know where to go for AIDS tests, " Ellie Gabel, registered nurse, said, ' ' We had two people come in in the fall semester who wanted to know where they could take an AIDS test. We referred them to the Ellis County Health Department. The tests are free. Most people prefer alternative sites in different communities though, " Gabel said. According to Wade, most people in western Kansas prefer to go to Topeka for AIDS tests. By the end of PLAGUE OF THE ' 80s -The death toll Is expected to rise to 180,000 by 1992. (Photo illustration by Robert Bunting) November, a total of four people had tested positive for HTLV-III, a virus that causes AIDS, according to Mary Englert, Ellis County Health nurse. According to Englert, 17 people had been tested . Englert operates her office under state guidelines, adhering to strict ethics of confidentiality. The only questions asked are the individual ' s age and lifestyle, Registered nurse Patti Smith, Student Health Center, said education is showing quite a success. “I think people are better educated. They know more, are more conscientious about protection, " Smith said. Both. Gabel and Smith said they would never turn down an AIDS patient. " It wouldn’t bother me at all, " Smith said. by Bettina Heinz OPINION AIDS treated as civil rights issue Two columns in " The University Leader " about AIDS by Wayne Laugesen, senior staff writer, stirred up controversy. Laugesen ' s column " AIDS wrongly becomes civil rights issue " accused " gay rights activists " of " successfully replacing precaution and research with civil rights rhetoric. " Laugesen concluded " to equate intelligent pre- caution with fag basiling is dangerous and unwise. In a letter to the editor, Kathy Douglas, Student Health Center director, wrote that " Laugesen ' s editorial is based purely on misinformation and panic. " " AIDS is not a disease associated with a certain group... but with high-risk activities, " Douglas wrote.
