Enroll- ment and other beginning-of-the-year activities easily fell into familiar patterns. Students began the year in motion toward new facilities, new friendships, and new challenges. The Penka Building beckoned with sparkling hallways and pristine classrooms, labs, and even a snack bar. The college had never before had a teaching lab for foods and nutrition, a child care center, or adequate and comfortable nursing educa- tion and cosmetology instructional facilities. Besides the new Penka Building of Practical Arts and Sciences, other new facilities had also grown dramatically during the summer.

Projects in wood production, auto body, graphics and printing, and police science piled up as students waited to move into these new facilities. Likewise, basketball, volleyball, and racquetball players, wrestlers, and weightlifters held their collective breaths as they awaited the late fall opening of large additions to the gym. Even members of the community anticipated 504 new reserved deluxe seats and expanded general ad- mission seating in the gym. Actors, musicians and artists kept their motion temporarily in check as they waited to move into renovated areas in the newly named Pauline Joyce Fine Arts Building. The Fine Arts Building was dedicated to longtime Board of Trustees member Pauline Joyce, Aug. 10, 1986.

In spite of delays, or perhaps because of them, the spirit of motion and progress gained intensity throughout the first semester. Predictions of an in- creased enrollment were proven correct when the headcount was totaled at 20f7b higher than the fall of 1985. Students from Garden City and the surrounding area as well as such distant states as Florida and California, arrived to compete both academically and athletically. The median age of all students continued to rise over the past ten years to a high of 27.5.

Three teams in par- ticular had successful seasons. Coach Duane Werner's wrestlers earned a trip to nationals after hard work and dedication throughout the regular season. By the end of the season the Buster wrestlers were ranked second in the nation. The team came away with five tournament championship wins and a sixth place finish in national competition. Three wrestlers earned All- American status. They were An- thony jefferson, Antione Parker and Ronny Higdon. The men's basketball team also ended the season with an im- pressive conference record. They came away with a perfect home record and an overall record of 26-7. The Busters made it to the playoffs by defeating the Hutchin- son Blue Dragons. They then won their first play-off game against Pratt. The baseball team, under the direction of Head Coach joe Slobko, experienced another suc- cessful season. Their record in- cluded over 30 wins. Although the other teams such as women's basketball, men's and women's tennis, track and golf may not have had their most suc- cessful seasons, they still demonstrated hard work and determination. It was the last year for men's ten- nis and women's softball. The Board of Trustees dropped the two programs, due to a number of reasons. One reason was the demanding workload placed on the coaches, who were involved with other sports and teaching responsibilities.

Sports 1 SPORTS IVV A new beginning Ausplcious start for football tea The Broncbuster football squad, under the leadership of new Head Coach Brian McNeely, had an auspicious start with a win over Hutchin- son. Faron Hornes returned a punt 68 yards for the first six points of the game. Dane Grif- fith kicked the extra point to give the Busters an early seven point lead. The Busters defeated the Blue Dragons 22-15g ending a five year losing streak against Hutchinson. "Hutchinson was a tough opening game, especially with the rain. We made the big plays we needed to. It was the first time GCCC has beaten a play-off team. It was a good win for the program," McNee- ly said. The taste of victory was shortlived. The Busters were defeated in a heartbreaker 43-42 by Pratt. The Beavers scored 22 points in the final frame to come away with a win. "We played extremely well for 53 minutes of the game. We were leading 42-21 with seven minutes left. We maybe thought we had the game won and started celebrating too soon,', McNeely said. The Busters then faced the Coffeyville Red Ravens. Cof- feyville came into the match- up ranked number one na- tionally. The Busters lost the game by one touchdown, 20-14. "We played well enough to win. The defense held them to under 150 yards of offense. We had almost 300 yards. We just made a couple of big mistakes, i.e. fumbles, that cost us the game. At that time, they were ranked number one in the country," McNeely said. The team lost their next game to the Dodge City Con- quistadors. Air Force Prep visited and the Busters were victorious in the non-league contest. The Busters then lost their next two before beating Highland 42-6 in their last home game. They then travel- ed to Fort Scott for the last game of the season where they were defeated 27-24. The Busters came out of the season, not with disappoint- ment, but with hope for the next season. "This was the first year in rebuilding the GCCC pro- gram. We played better than our 3-6 record but made a lot of mistakes due to mental er- rors and youthfulness," McNeely said.

According to johns the ar- tifical surface at the practice area aggravated already weak ankles. Pattie Goodman, a strength in the Buster lineup, was out of action during crucial matches.

Cross Country takes special people DCd1C3t1OH IS a prerequlslte "It's an individual sport that takes a special person to take partf' Head Cross Country Coach Wayne Stagaard said. Those special people made up the men's and women's cross country team. They were Daryl Lynch, Bennie Ybarra, Joe Flores, Tony Silvester, Frank Szymanski, Kelly Young, Jolene Ostmeyer, Shirlene Hall and Ellie Overton. Lynch, a sophomore, finish- ed 21st out of 111 and Young, also a sophomore, finished in 19th place out of 93 at the Region VI meet at Barton County. Barton went on to win the regional meet. Only the top 15 finishers went on to compete national- ly. According to Stagaard competition throughout the season varied from other junior colleges to larger universities. "We were runn- ing behind some pretty good people," he said. Stagaard coached both the men and the women. He en- countered only one problem with this arrangement. The Air Force Academy scheduled the men's and women's meets 15 minutes and 12 miles apart. Aside from that he enjoyed coaching both squads. "It,s fun, it's the natural thing,', he said. Being a cross country run- ner required dedication. The men trained from nine to 12 miles per day and the women six to eight. "They have to run year round to be good," Stagaard said. According to Stagaard, cross country is the only sport which puts a premium on its weakest person. The team had to start together, stay together and be able to finish together. . . V .

New facilities and a winning team helped do just that. The new gymnasium had a capaci- ty of 2200 and the enthusiasm of the fans was evident at every game. The team came away with a perfect home record in the new gym and an overall season record of 26-7. According to Carey, the pre- season schedule helped prepare the team for upcom- ing regular season and con- ference play. "Being able to survive a tough pre-season schedule had to have a lot to do with our success," he said. Another factor contributing to the success of the team was the presence of a strong bench. Derek Williams, Nor- man Schippers and Robin Ogletree were all strong players off the bench. "The only real weaknesses were depth and free throw shooting," Carey said. "The three-point shot was good for us." Both Ty Walker and Horace Chaney were especial- ly effective from the three- point line. The team lacked ex- perience, but Carey felt they would be ready for another tough season next year. l'They've ffreshmenj been through the war," he said. What the team didn't have experience-wise, they made up for in leadership and size. Ackles was a 6'10" from Manteo, N.C. George freshman He made the difference in re- bounding and blocking. Ty Walker, a sophomore transfer from Kansas State University, contributed his ex- perience as a former Wildcat. Walker felt that the move from a four-year school to a junior college wasn't as hard as people thought. "I enjoyed this year, it wasn't that hard for me," he said. He commented that the toughest move was his first, the one from Ingalls to Manhattan. "The biggest tran- sition was from Ingalls to and si e K-State. K-State to Garden Ci- ty wasn't that hard," Walker said. "I really enjoyed being here, I don't have any regrets about leaving K-State," he said. He felt the experience of starting in every game helped to improve his overall game. "Horace Chaney had a great year scoring-wiseg Ty Walker solidified our team, George Ackles made a great deal of progress and we had two good point guards fMelvin Herring and Brace LoweJ," Carey said.

"Everything is at a faster pace at the college level,'l Schippers said. Highlights of the season in- cluded the win over the Hut- chinson Blue Dragons. The win put GCCC in 2nd place and gave the team a play-off berth with a home court ad- vantage. They won the first play-off game against Pratt and then lost to Hutchinson. According to Carey, the team had the most wins in a season, on the road and in the Jayhawk Conference and it was the first time GCCC plac- ed 2nd in the conference. The Busters were undefeated in games played in the refurbish- ed gym. Carey also felt en- thusiasm was stronger than it had been in earlier years. "I thought we had great fan Winning season support, great student body support," Carey said. The fans looked forward to the conference games, Carey said. "They fconference gamesl determine how far you'll go in the year," he ex- plained. Carey believed that the new facilities and the winning record would entice possible recruits. "Recruiting has been difficult because of our loca- tion," he said. "The new gym will help especially with in- state recruiting." Many sophomores transfer- red to Division I and four-year schools after GCCC. Several major college coaches, including Bobby Knight of Indiana, came to Garden City to scout potential transfer players. Former Buster standout Keith Smart started for Knight's NCAA Champion Hoosiers and was named Most Valuable Player of the championship game against Syracuse.

According to Head Coach Kim Price, Connors' State has been consistently nationally rank- ed. Eastern Oklahoma proved to be a strong ball club as well. Price believed that the tough start was a positive lear- ning experience for the girls. "By playing against the best I think it showed us the things we had to improve in as well as the fact that it showed the girls what level of play it takes to be at the top. It gave us something to work toward," Price said. The team then went on to defeat Colby with a last se- cond shot by freshman Shelly McVey. "I think the Colby game gave us a lot of con- fidence," Price said. Colby was the first win of the season and helped the Lady Busters learn to play as a team. "It was our first win of the year and it was on the road. We played well as a team and came from behind to pull the win out," Price said. Fort Scott was next on the schedule and girls were again successful. The two wins, over Colby and Ft. Scott, proved to be the only back-to-back win situation during the season. At one point during the Ft. Scott game, the team led by as many as 20 points. "We got a little bit careless and started turning the ball over," Price said. Ft. Scott never gained the lead but they did make a strong comeback and the Busters were forced to hold on 12 Women's BasketballlSports for a 69-63 win, which put their record at 2-2 early in the season. The Coffeyville game prov- ed to be a nightmare. The leading scorer going into the game, Susan Braun, was car- ried off the court and taken to the hospital. The diagnosis was torn car- tilage and surgery was re- quired. "Losing Susan Braun was a big loss for us, not only statistically but also we lost a lot of leadership," Price said. According to Price, Braun provided intensity and self- motivation and helped set a positive example for the rest of the team. Another valuable player in the Buster lineup, Renee Price, left at semester. She was the team's second leading scorer at that point. "The loss of the number one and two scorers proved costly," Coach Price said. Price was pleased with the effort put forth by her team. The only problem seemed to be inconsistency. "I felt like in our conference schedule, we played a lot of good halves but we never put together two good halves," she said. The only exception to that was the three point loss to Pratt on Feb. 11. The Lady Busters were ahead the whole game until a minute and a half was left in the game. Tonya Sheldon, the starting point guard, fouled out. "I felt like with the loss of Tonya we lost some ball-handling ability when Pratt started full court man defense toward the end of the game," Price said. "We made three very costly turnovers at that point which proved to be the difference," she said. The win against Central Col- lege later in the season was important for the morale of the players. "Our win against Central College was very much needed, we had a long drought with no wins," Price said. According to Price, the team encountered a lot of adversity and disappointment, yet they continued to work hard and improve. "I was very pleased with a lot of players' improve- ment over this past season," she said.

Prior to 1987, under Werner's direction, the Busters posted a 132-22-4 dual record. The top returnees from 1986 included Kory Taylor who finished 4th in the NJCAA at 158 and Larry Thompson who placed 7th at 142. Antione Parker returned at 134 and Ronny Higdon at 126.

Other important returnees were Richard Agee who plac- ed 3rd in the Zone and An- thony jefferson, a 4th place finisher at Heavyweight. The Busters started the season with a road trip to Powell, Wyo. The team, rank- ed 6th in the nation, faced number 11 ranked Northwest Wyoming. They came away with one champion and five runners-up. Larry Thompson was the lone champion. He won the 150 pound weight class with a 2-0 decision over Rod Clugston of Northwest. "We did well, thanks to our depth," Werner said. "Our depth paid off with places in nine out of 10 weights and six wrestlers in the finals. That's what did it." The Busters then traveled to Arizona Where they took on Phoenix College, Arizona State University junior Varsi- ty and Pima College. They came away victorious. The team then faced Colby Community College at Colby. They won by a score of 28-9. "I 14 Wrestling!Sports 1 1 l l F was pleased with the team's performance knowing that you're not going to be in a peak for every match," Werner said. "We changed the lineup and moved some new guys in." At 167, Evan Parr wrestled in place of an injured Kory Taylor. He was defeated by jim Voss 8-5. Sophomore Scott Oliver stepped in for An- tione Parker at 142 and was pinned by Steve Arnhold in 4:58. Those were the only two losses suffered by the Busters at the Colby dual. The first home match for the squad was against Labette Community College. With a 20-2 lead, it was Eric Stewart's win that put the team at ease. "I thought the turning point was when Eric Stewart won. When he won, we won," Werner said. l l There were five individual champions at the Central States Championship hosted in Garden City. The Busters edged past number five rank- ed Northwest Wyoming. "I think they fNorthwestJ are very tough," Werner said. "We both have some outstan- ding wrestlers." Their next victory at Labette left them undefeated in dual action. "We're the se- cond undefeated sports team in GCCC history and they've both been in wrestling. That's fantastic," Werner said. "That doesn't come around very often." "We're tickled. You end up 18-0, that's a goal you set," Werner explained. "It was a lot of hard work and dedica- tion that did it."

"It's a shame that you can have a wrestler that is 27-6 on the season with all his losses coming to the number one and two men in the nation, and he doesn't get to go to nationals," Werner said. The team wrapped up the season with a sixth place finish at the National Tourna- ment in Chicago. The finish was the best in the history of GCCC wrestling. Three wrestlers earned All- American status by placing in the tournament. They were Anthony Jefferson, 2nd at Heavyweightg Antione Parker, 3rd at 142 pounds and Ronny Higdon, 8th at 134 pounds. Jefferson made it to the championship match and was defeated by Copache Tyler of Lincoln College, Ill. Parker won his consolation finals match in overtime 5-3 by defeating Bob Gallagher of Lakeland. Higdon lost his match dropping a 4-3 decision to Robert Young of Triton. According to Werner, "We wrestled some bad matches, and werenit as aggressive as we should have been.

SportsfWrestling 1 7 2 1 W SPORTS Inf After 21 game winning streak Season ends two weeks too earl "We had a good year, except it ended two weeks too soon," said Head Baseball Coach Joe Slobko. The team ended the season with a 31-11 record. For six weeks, March 5 to April 16, the Busters ex- perienced a 21 game winning streak. "The 21-game winning streak was great, I loved it," Slobko said. The team opened the season on a winning note as sophomore centerfielder Doug Ruff hit a grand slam homerun against Otero Coun- ty Community College to put the Busters ahead by four runs. That was just the beginning. The team won a double header against Colby, 14-1 and 15-8, that set their streak at 19. Standout hitters against Col- by were Doug Ruff who went 3-for-3 for a pair of homeruns and four runs batted ing Steve Johannson, Dayton Moore and Chad Armstrong were all 3-for-4. Their first double-header loss of the season ended their winning streak. They were defeated at home by Barton County. "We were three outs away from a conference cham- pionship," Slobko said. "No tear drops, they played good. They had as many hits as we did, they just made their's count. We had the tying run on second with no one out," he said. The Busters then faced a short string of A losses, in- cluding one to Trinidad, Colo. Their bad luck ended April 19 when they won three in a row. The team defeated Barton 18 Baseball!Sports County at the Barton County Pepsi Tournament, putting their record at 29-9, 25-5 against junior colleges. "The Barton tourney was good for us. fCougarsl had looked awesome in that doubleheader, and it was very important that we beat them," Slobko said. "We found out they are human, too." The team was blessed with six pitchers with winning records. Sophomore pitchers were Cory Gesell, Troy Salinas, Mike Acre and Todd White and freshmen pitchers were Kelly Knepley and Kelly Arnberger. In the last action before sub- regionals, the Busters faced Hutchinson in a double-header and pitchers Mike Acre and Todd White combined for a three-hit shutout. Acre moved his pitching record to 4-1. The double win left the team ranked 19th in the nation with a 31-9 overall record. Their 10-2 conference record put them in second place behind Barton County. Hopes of a Region VI cham- pionship were dashed when the Busters were defeated by both Dodge City and Pratt at sub-regional play at Butler County. The team went into the tournament ranked 20th in the nation and seeded first. "Our kids played wel1,we're not disappointed in the season. We hope the sophomores look back on it as a positive ex- perience and our freshmen look at it as a stepping stone for next year." Slobko said.

The baseball team, who normally played their games 'at Clint Lightner field, soon had a new field of their own under construction. The site was just north of the gymnasium and had special meaning for Garry and Janet Williams of Kokomo, Ind. Their son, Lewie, played for GCCC in the early 1980s. The Williams' contributed S220,000 to initiate the project, along with a challenge to the community to finance the re- mainder of the cost for the new field. Williams referred to the link between athletics and academics when he spoke before the Board of Trustees on Sept. 11. "Exciting, talented teachers are wanting to come to the university because of the fine facilities," he said. His appearance before the board was to appeal for an ad- ditional S150,000 commitment to the project. His appeal was successful. Preliminary discussion of the project had produced pro- posed cuts which concerned the Williams'. They were com- mitted to excellence, and their initial contribution was made to "construct the finest place to play baseball in the area." They felt some of the propos- ed cuts would conflict with this purpose, therefore pro- moting the appeal. Coach Slobko felt that hav- ing their own facility would be beneficial for the team. "Because of the central loca- tion of Garden City, top teams will pass through consistently, Step by step-The grandstand area of the baseball facility nears completion. And there was light-One of several light poles waits to be hoisted in to place beside the grandstand. and now we will have the facilities with which to accom- modate them," he said. "Having these facilities will undoubtedly give a tremen- dous boost to recruiting top talent to play baseball here at GCCC," Slobko added. The facilities included a grandstand that had a roof as well as a seating capacity of approximately 400 people. The new facility was original- ly planned to have an artificial turf playing field. However, after discussing the plans with the Williams', Coach Slobko explained "that due to costs involved with ar- tificial turf, as well as the fact that baseball was designed to be played on natural turf, the plan was revised." It was then changed to have a natural grass turf with cut-outs. Coach Slobko summed it up when he said "the new facilities are going to be super, for recruiting, playing spectatingf' Z?

No wins were recorded and four players had their first ex- perience playing softball. It was Price's first year as softball coach-and her last. It was decided in mid-April by the Board of Trustees to drop the program beginning in 1987-88 school year. "I really admire these young women for coming out for softball knowing they were way behind the others in terms of experience in soft- ball. All of these young ladies improved tremendously as the season went on," Price said. Another key ingredient that the team seemed to lack was an experienced pitcher. "To be competitive at this level of fastpitch, it takes one or two fast, accurate pitchers who have pitched for years," Price said. "None of our players had ever pitched, but I felt like Becky Graff and Lisa Salyer came in and pitched as well as anyone could ask. They did not have the speed of some of the experienced pitchers around, but they continued to gain accuracy as the season progressed," she said. Leading hitters for the Lady Busters were Becky Graff, Cherri Woolbright and Lisa Salyer. Renea O'Neal led the team in steals. "Defensively, Becky Graff and Lisa Salyer did a very good job. Both players have strong, accurate arms, as well as quickness," Price said. Salyer and Graff were voted Most Outstanding Player and Most Inspirational Player, respectively. 15' ', fit!

Effort and determination Although the women's ten- nis team lacked numbers, they made up for it in effort and ex- tra practice. The team only had three players instead of the usual number of six. "We were short in number of players this year. But, the players we had made up for the shortage by working hard and practicing extra hours," Coach Betty jo johns said. Sophomore Cynde Mustain returned along with two freshmen, Kimette Barr and Michelle Shearmire. "Cynde Mustain was our outstanding player this season. She played number one singles and doubles," Johns said. Mustain came away from the season with a 7-7 singles record. According to johns, "the matches she won were decisive wins, every match she lost was close and several went to three, sets." Michelle Shearmire of Scott City played number two singles. "Michelle has a powerful serve and showed great determination during the season," Johns said. Shear- mire ended the season with a 3-8 record. Kimette Barr, Garden City, played number three singles.

The four freshmen and two sophomores found it difficult to carry on the example set by the previous team. "After losing five sophomores from last year's third place team in Region VI 28 Men's TennislSports it was very difficult for the freshmen to come in and play the way the sophomores did the previous year," Coach Kent Davison said. Yet, the players didn't give up. "The kids competed hard and I thought they improved immensely as the season went on," he said. One real problem was the tributed practice plained. "I felt like my game really came together and I felt like as the season went on I improved more and more after every match," said Ty Walker, sophomore. Norman Schippers and Sam Schwerdtfeger played number two doubles and defeated Seward County twice, Central College of McPherson and Northeast Colorado Com- munity College.

"Most teams have excellent one and two players as we did last year with Ysabel Orosco and Geoff Plumlee," he said. Orosco went on to play ten- nis at Washburn University and Plumlee played at Em- poria State University. The men's tennis program as well as the women's softball program was dropped by the Board of Trustees on April 15. "Even though I didn't feel I had the time fwith basketball recruiting, to spend with the tennis program I hate to see the opportunity for our students to play on the tennis team taken away," Davison said.

The play focused on death and explaining the subject to children. Approximately 1200 grade school children saw the play presented in afternoon matinees. The annual dance production was put on May 1 and 2 by dance and instrumental music students. The showcase of student perfor- mances was directed by Doral Mancini and was entitled "East Meets West."

At one point they even threatened to run me out of town," Jan Kemp said during her lecture Oct. 10. Kemp, professor of English at the University of Georgia, was referring to her ordeal with the university which began in 1981. She protested the institution's preferential treatment of athletes. She faced intimidation from administrators as well as selected students. "I faced in- timidation, death threats, obscene phone calls and slander," Kemp said. "They did these things to my friends also. They wanted to totally alienate me from everything," Kemp said. The nightmare began five years ago when she and several other faculty members refused to pass nine football players in order for them to play in the 1982 Sugar Bowl. The grades were changed and the Sugar Bowl was played, Georgia lost 24-20 to the University of Pittsburgh. Kemp was fired from the university for continually refusing to change the grades of failing athletes. The university contended that she was fired because she failed to conduct research or make progress toward promo- tion. In her lawsuit against the University of Georgia, Kemp sought back salary and a token payment. "I never dreamed they would award 82.6 million," Kemp said. "What happened to the University of Georgia should be an important lesson to every university whose policies were styled like ours were," Kemp said. Due to the stress and the longevity of the lawsuit, Kemp faced psychotic depres- sion and attempted suicide twice. "The main reason for my depression was the suffering that my students faced in court on my behalf and vice- versa," Kemp said. "I'm very glad that I had a good Lord and a good doctor to get me through that ordeal," she said. The mother of two children, Kemp said, "We didn't go hungry during those five years, but we sure put some strange things on the table." "'It's better to starve free than be a fat slave,"' Kemp said, quoting Aesops. Her message to the student athletes was to "play for safe- ty, in life as well as a game. Learn your academics, a knee can go like that, but a mind can last forever," she said. Kemp signed a contract to have her story turned into a movie and a first chapter of the book written by Randall Savage, Pulitzer Prize winner, was submitted to Simon and Schuster Publishing Com- pany. Kemp attributed the exten- sive press coverage of her case to the fact that the University of Georgia Bulldogs were a powerhouse team. "It really helped to get the message out," she said. "People are just not going to stand for this kind of thing anymore." Kemp implored the faculty and student body alike to keep the college honest. "It's your place to see to its integrity." In summing up her speech, Kemp said, "silence is not always golden, sometimes it's just yellow."

"This was an experiment as we didn't know how it would go over with such a diverse group of students," Dave Peyton said. "Everything turned out fine and everyone said they enjoyed themselves." "Some of these kids had never even seen a mechanical bull, much less ridden one," Peyton said. "I'd say it went over real well."

Food Service Manager Dave Peyton hoped that the new Buster Bar would serve as more than just a place to eat. "I'd like students to see this as a place where they can relax, socialize and even play cards if they want to," Peyton said. The snack bar utilized daily specials, at a cost of 51.89, to encourage the students to eat there. "Every Wednesday we serve Mexican food as our special," Peyton said. "It seems to be the kids' favorite." Among other items included on the menu were Bronc Burgers, Big George Burgers, cold sandwiches and the usual side dishes of french fries or potato chips. On the lighter side, the Buster Bar also pro- vided a soup and salad bar. The snack bar moved from its previous location in the Student Center to the Penka Building. According to Peyton, it was not an easy move. "It means a lot more work for me, but the central campus location is more convenient for the students and faculty," Peyton said. 4, . "This location allows students to purchase a quick snack or drink between classes and the food is more nutritious than the products offered in the vending machines," Peyton explained. To further accommodate the students, Peyton extended the hours to include Sunday even- ings, since the cafeteria served only breakfast and lunch on that day. ' "Many students in the dorms don't have transporta- tion to get to a third meal on Sunday if they want one, so this will really benefit those students," Peyton said. , V ,pw 19,..,,l,..m,W,,,,,,-- V1 Carolyn Cook, Garden City David Cooper, Moscow Maria Corral, Garden City Leslie Cramer, Syracuse Blaine Crocker, Pierceville Mickey Crues, Garden City Ella Cruz, Garden City Phil Cruz, Garden City David Cunningham, Garden City Steve Curry, Yarmouth, IA Barry Curtis, Garden City Margaret Chvilicek, Marienthal Keith Daise, Goodland jullie Dale, Garden City Janice Dallas, Holcomb Kim Davis, Garden City Danny Day, Garden City Johnny Dearmore, Ulysses Kirk Dechant, Garden City Edward Dekeyser, Lakin Susan Dempsey, Garden City Joe DeSalvo, Penrose, CO james Diamond, Garden City Laurie Diamond, Garden City A place to relax-Adel Silva, Evan Parr and Kim Stolpe Qfront table! and Nancy Welton, Terrance Ken- dall and Rocky Birkle Cback table! take a break from classes in the Buster Bar.

After the session, team members sign- ed autographs and spoke with parents and spectators. According to Head Foot- ball Coach Brian McNeely, "the kids just had a ball." Approximately 275 community youth participated in the activities. The kids ranged in age from two to 15, but the event was open to anyone. The day served several purposes. One purpose was to acquaint the community with the football team. Another was to in- troduce incoming recruits to the com- munity as well as the college itself. "I think it helped them a lot in getting ac- climated to our school," McNeely said. McNeely hoped to raise the number of participants to 1,000. "I'd like to get a 1,000 kids, that's my goal," he said. He considered Buddy Day an overall success. "I'm the optimist. If I'd had three people I would have considered it a success," McNeely said. Three local businesses, American Im- plement, Garden City Farm Equipment and Massey Ferguson, provided free 'Il-shirts for participants. When worn to a home football game, the T-shirt admitted the wearer free of charge. The actual Buddy Day activities were sponsored by the football team. McNeely organized and coordinated the drills and exercises. Many of the friendships that formed during those drills and exercises carried over as the kids cheered for their favorite player throughout the season.

Campus LifelBuddy Day 43 The college Demo Team was formed- from the best eight students who employed the Ryukyu Kempo Karate system. , Ryukyu Kempo was a new addition to the police science program when it was initiated by Instructor Dennis Elam in 1982. Following the implementa- tion of the program, enroll- ment steadily increased. "The eight we choose are the very best. They have to be the best because of the rigorous workouts and prac- tice schedule," Elam said. Many people were under the .impression that a major in Precision timing important-Steve Elam demonstrates Nunchaku Kata during, a Ryukyu Kempo Karate Association Belt Ceremony in October. z"',l5?-, ' a 44 Demo TeamlStudents Students learn self-defense and compete in police science was a must for the Demo Team. "Not so," Elam said. "Even adults from the community can try out if they are enrolled in the Karate class," he said. "I've had peo- ple from 13 years old on up try out and make the team." When his students showed an interest in the team, Elam first looked at their attitude. "If someone has ulterior motives for taking the class, other than for self defense in emergencies, he is in for a let- down," Elam said. "Ryukyu Kempo isn't like the movies or TV. We teach people how to change their at- titudes in order to avoid a con- frontation," Elam said.- Attitude conditioning was the unique ingredient to this system of self defense. The demo team was con- cerned with self defense. "That's what the Demo Team is allabout. Our routines show various ways of avoiding a Control is essential-Tom Green practices a flying front snap kick as Sheryl Escareno offers a target. She is assisted by Instnictor Dennis Elam. I fight but they also show how quickly your opponent can be put out of business," Elam said. The Demo Team performed in several states and their ultimate goal was to perform internationally on USO tour during the summers. "It would be a terrific opportunity for the kids and it's a great chance for people to see the full program," Elam said. "All of our routines are choreographed with split se- cond timing and people who have never seen it before are always in awe," Elam said. Ryukyu Kempo originated in Okinawa over 600 years ago. The government ex- pected an uprising and farmers were divested of their weapons. The Okinawans developed this system of self defense using their farm tools and bare hands. The example of the Okinawans was the backbone that formed Elam's program. The Demo Team was the catalyst for those beliefs. X... Q Ax.,-V Wi? 'ir ,ng .. if 5 . ..

The play, written by Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek, was based on the book, "The Quilters: Women and Domestic Art" by Patricia Cooper and Norma Bradley Allen. Set in the late 1800's, the play depicted the day-to-day trials in the life of a pioneer woman. Each act was signaled by a different quilt block which symbolized an event in a pioneer woman's life. One of the characters, Sarah, played by Gay Morgan, summed up the play's theme when she spoke of the quilt. "There's a thread of somebody's life in it. It's my dreams, my hopes, my prayers - It's my legacy quilt." Director and producer Doral Mancini pointed out that, "these women looked upon their quilting as the 'colour' in their lives. It represented their only respite from the vigorous daily routines of housework, fieldwork, and child-rearing, just to name a few." Mancini first saw "Quilters" three years ago at the Denver Theatre Center, where the original cast had revived the show before touring the Southwest and heading to Broadway. "When I left the theatre that evening, I knew I wanted to produce this play in Southwest Kansas since, as one of the characters says - in some ways it's our own story," Mancini said. Mancini was intrigued by the smaller than ususal all-female cast, the fact that the play was scored for a small orchestra of traditional country music instrumentsg vocally, the show could be described as a "folk opera" in style and the tone of the script was dramatic. "It required ensemble playing that covered a wide range of characters, emo- tions and ages," Mancini said. The props included cornhusk dolls made by Cherlyn Lane, a freshman in theatre and dance. She constructed all of the dolls used in the production. "I've been making these dolls for years, so my job on the play was more fun than work," she said. "Because the show was so recently con- ceived, there are no previous production records, films, photos or cast albums to use in researching and approaching the showf' Mancini said. Knowing these difficulties would have to be faced, but also believing that com- munity college theatre needed to offer challenges, new directions and oppor- tunities to create, Mancini and company began their journey. "Through it all the people involved in this production have persevered, weathering a tremendously complex musical score, scaling the heights and depths of the characters and the set, and giving their best to a demanding and un- compromising director. I think their trip was worth it," Mancini said. In reference to the production, Mancini paraphrased Sarah's line about one of her quilts, "I think this was one of the pret- tiest ones we've ever made."

QuilterslCampus Life 47 A necessary luxury for many college students DING MAC HI ES In a world of nutrition con- scious people-one thing re- mained popular, the vending machine. Although vending machines originated in the 1880s, their greatest growth has come in recent years. Overall, Americans spent an averageiof over 3365 per year in vending machines. In September of 1985 alone, the sale of soft drinks from the machines on campus totaled S3,760.95. On the sweeter side, candy machines took in an average of S500 per month. Candy had it's most pro- sperous times in February and April.

However, many people pro- bably didn't realize that the two ounce candy bar contain- ed 270 calories. Other selec- tions besides candy bars in- cluded brownies, cheese and peanut butter crackers, gum and Lifesavers. For those watching their weight, Snickers and other selections were temptations too hard to resist. "When you're trying to cut down on calories, itis hard not to let yourself indulge in a candy bar when you walk by and see it in the machine just begging you to buy it," Sophomore Cathy Reist said. There were approximately 150 calories in a can of pop. But, several varieties of diet soft drinks were offered. The machines in the john Collins Vocational Building sold the largest volume of both soft drinks and candy. Students were asked why the vending machines were so popular. "In the morning, I always drink a Pepsi because I don't drink coffee and I need the caffeine to get me going," Sophomore Mark Collins said. Although the candy machines weren't used as much as the Coke and Pepsi machines, they still had their place in the vocational building. "As for the candy machine, I haven't used it much. It's good to have if you're really hungry because a pop won't quite fill you up, but a Snickers and a Pepsi will definitely hold you over!" Ralph Millershaski, sophomore, said. Brad Butler, freshman, spent approximately a dollar a day satisfying his craving for caffeine by way of the pop machine. Despite their products' lack of nutritional value, vending machines remained a necessary luxury for many students.

Sponsored by the College Lecture Series, Westmoreland related the political history of the Vietnam War to students, faculty, and interested veterans. Westmoreland, 63, was appointed to the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, N.Y. and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army upon graduation in 1936. In 1942, he assumed command of the 34th Field Artillery Battalion in North Africa and later commanded that same unit in combat in Tunisia and Sicily. Following operations in Tunisia, his bat- talion was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for outstanding combat action. In August 1947, he was named Chief of Staff of the 82nd Airborne Division, serv- ing for several years. During his career, Westmoreland com- manded several combat units. At the age of 42, he became a two star general, mak- ing him the youngest major general in the Army, In january 1964, he reported to duty at the U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, and was designated Deputy Commander. Later in the year he was ap- pointed Commander and served four years. Westmoreland became Chief of Staff of the Army in july 1968 and in july 1972 he retired following 36 years of federal ser- vice. Westmoreland's March address revolv-' ed around the American media and its treatment of the war. Television gave America a vivid, first-hand look at the events occuring in Vietnam. "Vietnam was a big part in the history of our country and it is important that you students and the country as a whole, see the war in its proper perspective," Westmoreland said. "Although the perspective of this war has, up until now, been considerably distorted by the press, I think we can now see this war in its true light," he said. He went on to give a synopsis of the events which led up to America's involve- ment in the war. Westmoreland also cited key events that occured during the war which he thought were dealt with "rather shabbi1y" by the media. One such incident was the well publicized My Lai Massacre in which 300 to 400 people-most of them women, children and old men-were slain on March 16, 1968. "It was because of media reporting on events such as this that our service men were not well received or well treated by society," Westmoreland said. "Not only the press, but the college deferments and the lack of a war declara- tion had a lot to do with public sentiment against the war in Vietnam," he explain- ed. Westmoreland went on to condemn the media for making the Vietnam crisis the "first television war in the history of the world". "Television personalities had more in- fluence on the American people than elected officials did and that is not a good thing. The media must be news tellers-not news makers," Westmoreland said. "These events are the reasons that the government lacked passionate public sup- port during the Vietnam conflict. These are the reasons why our soldiers did not receive their hero's welcome home," Westmoreland said. When asked about his view of the 1987 Oscar award winning film, "Platoon," Westmoreland told the audience he felt the movie did not give an accurate ac- count of what the soldiers' day to day ex- istence was like in Vietnam. "I myself, have not seen the film, but I have received many letters from concern- ed veterans who have seen it and the outlook is not good," Westmoreland said. "The incidences of bad conduct depicted in the film were isolated in- stances. I'm sure that some of these things did occur, but in no case did all of those things take place in one platoon. This film in no way typifies the hundreds of platoons in Vietnam," he said. In closing Westmoreland explained his reasons for speaking to college audiences and other groups about the war. "It is because of all of these things I've spoken about today that I have made it my number one priority to put the Viet- nam veterans' experience into proper perspective for the American people," Westmoreland said. Following his retirement from the Ar- my, Westmoreland traveled to various states and countries and spoke about his experiences. He and his wife Katherine resided in Charleston, S.C.

SGA chose this project in the hope that the community would become better ac- quainted with the plight of the handicapped person in day to day activities and appreciate their own health a little more. Over 75 students and com- munity businesses par- ticipated by donning crutches, braces and wheelchairs during the three hour event. It began at 9 a.m. in the Library Lounge where Mayor Ward Loyd proclaimed Nov. 12 as Handicap Awareness Day. From there, students and community members went about their morning as usual, only this time with slight encumberances. Many participants found that many of their usual day to day tasks were not easily ac- complished. College Coordinator and SGA sponsor, Bill Bryan, found that the simple task of entering the Academic restroom, while confined to a wheelchair, was not feasible. "Other doorways were just barely wide enough to get through but your fingers scraped the door frames," Bryan said. English Instructor Kathy Isaac found it extremely dif- ficult to teach her classes. "I am used to moving around a lot while I teach and the wheelchair made that kind of mobility almost impossible," Isaac said. "I like to mingle with my students and go to them if they are having difficulties. That day they had to come to me. I felt very constrained in the wheelchair," Isaac said. Students came to appreciate the problems that many tem- porarily handicapped people l face. Sophomore Brenda Schiltz put on a neck brace and a walker and found it dif- ficult to carry a book bag from class to class. "I had a test to take that day and I found that I couldn't see the top of the desk because of the confinement of the neck brace," Schiltz said. "I had an extremely difficult time manuevering with the walker, and trying to get into the restrooms was equally dif- ficult," Schiltz said. Handicap Awareness Day opened the eyes of many on campus. President Dr. Thomas Saffell and the Board of Trustees implemented plans for renovation to make the original buildings on cam- pus fully accessible to the han- dicapped person.

'Q I I Kd", A.Q,i'i'sThu M' Difficult subject dealt with in children's play 'THE ARKANSAW BEAR' "The Arkansaw Bear," presented to ap- proximately 1200 grade school children in afternoon matinees and to the general public on Feb. 26 and 27 focused on death. Director Skip Mancini explained that the play dealt with a subject seldom discussed with children. According to Mancini the play was well received by audiences. Following the per- formances the director, cast and crew received many letters, cards and postcards from young admirers. The play revolved around Tish, played by Laura Kreie, who was told about her grandfatheris approaching death. She then ran to her favorite tree and made a wish on the first star visible that night, asking "why Grandpa has to die?" The star's answer involved a fantasy world of circus characters including a mime, the World's Greatest Dancing Bear, the Ringmaster and the Little Bear. The mime was played by Melissa Jensen, the Dancing Bear was portrayed by Buddy Rhddes, the Ringmaster was played by Mitch Near and Kathi Tibbets was the Little Bear. Dancing Bear was about to be called to the Great Center Ring-a metaphor for death. Not wanting to die, Dancing Bear tried to escape the Ringmaster. I think l've got it-Kathi Tibbets, the Arkansaw Bear, finally learns the dance steps taught to her by the Dancing Bear. The star was played by Cherlyn Lane. She was lowered from the ceiling by a swing. Every day she weighed in and the appropriate amount of weight was added to the fly system. Special effects were a highlight of the play. Realistic fog was a part of the set. ".Children,s theater doesn't have to be done with special effects, but I feel the children's shows we do here should use all the special effects we can. I think it was a very impressive show visually," Mancini said. In one hand, Lane held a wand with strands of fabric glued with pieces of mir- ror. "I felt it would be really neat to have her fly in. I wanted something to happen with the star when it came in. That's why I decided to go with the mirrors," Man- cini explained. At certain points in the play a follow spot was shined on her. The wand acted as a prism and filled the auditorium with rapidly moving strands of light. "The technical effects gave images that will stay with the children for a long time," Mancini said. All special effects were cued by stage manager Dianne Wilken. She gave up to 100 cues per performance. By using headsets and a flashlight, she cued the light, sound and other technical people. Technicians included Keith Odgers, stage carpenter, Matt Haag, lighting board operator, Kip Kelly, follow spot, Kevin Moss, sound crew chief, Maloyd Wilson, practical sound and keyboards, Jeanette Shafer, makeup and Gay Morgan, costumes. Odgers designed the programs and posters for the production. The programs contained a Victorian hand puppet as well as a paper bear complete with various costumes. "The programs were a big hit with the kids," Mancini said. The children's theatre provided an op- portunity for everyone in the Garden City school system to see a production sometime during their grade school years.

The announcement read, "Don't spend a fortune or travel far and wide to enter- tain yourself-stay right here in Garden City and enjoy a day full of activities at GCCC." About 25 senior citizens were greeted by College Presi- dent Tom Saffell and also by Gene Schneider, dean of com- munity services, who initiated the plans for Senior Citizens Appreciation Day.

Roscoe Waldorf, retired life science instructor, expressed his amazement at "the tremen- dous growth and transition since the college moved to its present location in l969." The senior citizens were in- troduced to another first at the college--the first class of the Campus Child Care Center. The children had filled balloons with helium and put secret messages in them along with the college's address. The senior citizens and the children joined in a lift-off celebration. Following the informal reception, the seniors were given a tour of the campus, beginning with the dor- mitories. Many found it hard to believe that the students could fit so much into such a small area. "Isn't it amazing what these kids can do, with a little im- agination," said Fern Cliveland, one of the senior guests. Dennis Elam, criminal justice director, illustrated a human skeleton and described how various law enforcement agencies determine what or N who the bones belong to. Joe Schmurcheck, a retirei railroad engineer, expressef his interest in the skeleton say ing, "we know a little abou old bones, it's our territory." The guests had lunch in th campus cafeteria, had thei blood pressure checked bj nursing students and wer treated to haircuts ant manicures by cosmetologj students.

He served a dual role, coaching Broncbuster basketball in 1946-47 and 1948-49 through 1951-52, and coaching high school football at the same time. He resigned in April of 1952 to return to Sublette and farm in Haskell County. Hall had turned down an assistant coaching position at the University of Kansas. His 1949-50 team ended the season with a 26-6 record-at the time the best basket- ball record in GCCC history.

He went on to play at KU where he was a member of the 1952 team that won the went to the Canadian Football League, where he played for 14 years and garnered national honors. In recognition of Keller and Patterson, who led the Broncbusters to national standings, the college retired jersey number 55 in their honor. They both wore number 55 while playing for GCCC. Hall himself was an accomplished athlete. He attended KU where he let- tered for three years in football, three in baseball and one year in basketball. After four years at KU, he enlisted in the Navy and served for four years before coming to Garden City to coach. "I had in mind I would go into coaching. I felt that was my first love,', Hall said. "I was glad that I could coach back in this part of the state. Garden City is a dream town to coach in.

Approximately 150 students attended the dance. It marked the first appearance by a rock band on campus. With a wide variety of rock tunes to dance to, students were slow to get out and dance. However, it wasn't long before everyone got into the swing of things. Sponsored by Student Government Association, the dance replaced the tradi- tional Spring Formal. In the past few years the student interest in the formal had declined so SGA decided to try something new. "Initially, we decided to do this live When there's "Heat" it's hot-Lisa West, Ronny Higdon, Kurt Stoner and Shane Miller dance to the sounds of The Heat.

"Considering this event was the first of its type offered on our campus we con- sidered it very successful," Bryan said. "I really appreciated Dr. Saffell taking the students' interest at heart in going along with this type of student activity," he said. "The main reason we havenlt had anything like this before is because we didn't feel we had a location conducive to that type of music, and cost was another factor-we hope to continue this type of activity in the future," Bryan said. "The Heatu was started about three years ago by four brothers: Tim, Tony, Dave and Dan Pfeifer of Victoria. Vocalist and guitar player Kori Wilcox, Dodge City, joined the group last May. Last year the brothers won an inter- view and appeared on the television show "Star Search." Since then, they have played for many clubs, colleges and high schools. "lf we have a chance to do this type of activity again, I would certainly like to work with these guys. They were very congenial and hardworking," Bryan said. "Most important of all the students were positive about it and really enjoyed the band," Bryan said. A it 1 JT i Q- W--m.,.,..... Wmivn new .. L"' "" U' ' ,Ana ana.. - L, N " ' U 2, .

TR "Trapshooting is fast becoming a popular sport for both men and women," said Trap Shooting Instructor Ira Mann. One hour of physical educa- tion credit was given for the eight week course. "The course is designed to teach the basics of trap shooting, correct and safe use of shot guns, and the reloading of shot shells," Mann said. The highlight of the course was the trap competition at the end of the eight week period. Students competed at various skill levels according to their ability. "I'm getting more and more female shooters all the time. I've found that they are very good shots and they really en- joy what they are doing," Mann said. Kathy Pepera, freshman from Mesa, Ariz., enjoyed trap shooting. "I wanted to learn how to shoot and a friend told me that the best way for me to learn was to take Mr. Mann's trap shooting course," Pepera said. "Now that I've taken the class, I find that I really like shooting. It's a challenge and a lot of fun." David Robinson, a Garden City sophomore, was an avid trap shooter for four years. "I really like the sport of fi. K z .ll V 2 .tl :lf trap shooting and I enjoy the thrill of competition," Robin- son said. "David Robinson was a member of the 1986 team in the State Collegiate Shoot. Of the five members on the team, Robinson and Mike Braun of Holcomb took first in the two year college area and were named to the All-State Col- legiate Team," Mann said. "Students don't have to be registered hunters to enroll in the class and they don't have to own their own guns either. The college has four shot guns for students to use during class periods,", Mann said. Brenda"?',Schiltz,A"f a 1 l , S , sophomore from Garden City, enrolled in the class because she thought it would be an easy physical education credit. "After the first couple of weeks, I found that I could release a lot of tension by shooting on the range.

The production, directed by Drama In- structor Doral Mancini, featured dance, choreography, improvisation and mime students as well as the concert band. For the third year in a row the scholar- ship show was sold out. Previous produc- tions included "Hats Off" and "Triple Threat." The proceeds from the production went towards dance and music scholarships. Lance Gaertner, a member of the im- provisation class, enjoyed his part in the production. "The elevator scene was my favorite," Gaertner said. "In this scene we had ten people from all walks of life who get stuck between floors in an elevator-even a bag lady." "The elevator man tells us it will be awhile before he can fix it so we can sing or something-he doesn't care. Then my charactor begins to whistle and the tempo builds from there. It was great," he said. The finale, "Bangkok,,' portrayed two belly dancers enticing their partner fa live snakej. A favorite for many was the "Tunnel of Love" scene in which several kids broke into an amusement park. The music "Tunnel of Love " by Dire Straits, provided the beat for acting out a roller coaster ride and various other amusement park rides. Alaine Baker, a member of dance pro- duction class, was particularly pleased with the finale. "In this scene we began with oriental music and style of dance and we ended with rock and disco. The transition was amazing," Baker said. "The whole production was great. Keith Odgers was our stage manager and set designer and his work was truly remarkable," she said. "This was Keith's first production and believe me, he ate, slept and breathed this production. He did an excellent job," Baker said. The encore of the production, "Itsy Bit- sy Spider," was a real treat for the children of the audience. They were called on stage and, with the cast in a circle, they began to weave a web. To the chi1dren's delight, a four-foot spider began it's descent towards its web where it performed its own dance, with the aid of Fly Crew Chief Bryan Arie.

New facilities and new faces among changes for STUDE T SERVICES New facilities and a new Dean were among changes made in the Student Services department. Director of Admissions!- Counselor Beth Tedrow was named Dean of Student Ser- vices after the resignation of Ron Hopkins. Hopkins resign- ed in January ending nearly 20 years at the college. Tedrow, an alumni of GCCC, obtained her B.S. at the University of Kansas and her M.S. in guidance and counseling from Fort Hays State University. Although she still had some of her former duties, Tedrow planned many improvements in the student services pro- gram. The department includ- ed Health Services, Financial Aid, Scholarships, Counsel- ing, Transfer and Employ- ment opportunities. Health Services planned and presented health-related programs according to in- dividual needs. These services were coordinated by Health Nurse Mary Chappel. She pro- vided first aid for emergen- cies, consulted with others in the medical profession for students who did not have local doctors, sponsored free athletic physicals and was available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Financial aid for students was available through funds from the college, federal government programs and donations to the Endowment Association. The aid ranged from scholarships, grants and loans to work study jobs. Bill Bryan, director of ad- missions and Amie Keyes, assistant director of admis- sions, were available for per- sonal, educational, and voca- tional counseling. They helped with the orientaion and pre-enrollment of students 68 Student ServiceslStudents along with Dean of Admis- sions, Larry Fowler. Their duties also included assigning students faculty advisors from their particular field of study. The counselors also handled transfers which included ap- plications for admissions, sen- ding copies of transcripts to future institutions, and a cam- pus visit if possible. "Students should take advantage of pre- enrollment so they can get the classes they need, when they want them," Bryan said. Tedrow and the Kansas State Employment Service cooperated in finding suitable employment for interested students. On-campus jobs were available for qualified students through the office of Aids and Awards. "I have a lot to learn, but when I finally get everything cleared up I am going to do all that I can to expand student services and make students even more aware of what we can do for them," Tedrow said. The new facilities provided a more centralized location, which in turn provided easier access for the students and less hassle. The new location also pro- vided privacy in the separate areas.

Garcia was a native of Garden City who spent the previous 15 years in public service, including defense posts, White House assignments and Sergeant-at- Arms of the U.S. Senate. According to Saffel, "he is a local boy who made good. In high school he was a fair coun- try basketball player and one of the nicest students I ever worked with. The only time I had him in my office, it was to talk of positive matters," Saf- fel said. Saffel was the principal at Garden City High School when Garcia was a student there. Garcia urged the graduates to devote at least "one block" of their lives to government service. "Too many of our ablest citizens draw back, evidently fearful of being sullied in the broiling activity of partisan af- fairs," Garcia said. "This has to change. We need intelligent, creative, steady political leadership as at no time before in our history. There must be more talent in government," he ex- plained. Student Government Association President Todd Taylor gave the student response. "I got a lot for a little," he said.

"The Kansas Experience: A Workshop in Cancer Biology," was an intensive hands-on cancer research workshop sponsored by the KSU Divi- sion of Biology. Areas such as genes, chromosomes and cancers were explored. Faculty scientists from the Center for Basic Cancer Research at K-State presented lectures and supervised laboratory work in tumor im- munology, genetics and cancer, carcinogens and tumor promoters and other related topics. Coons was invited to par- ticipate by K-State and he was asked to nominate one student to participate in the project. Applications were taken and Kueker was selected. The workshop was limited to 32 participants.

The study, released in 1986, was conducted by the National Cancer Institute, K-State and the University of Kansas. Based on case studies of 1,372 Kansas men, results were that farmers exposed to herbicides for more than 20 days a year were six times more likely than non-farmers to develop a form of cancer known as non-Hodgkin's Lym- phoma. That form of cancer attacked the body's lymph glands. "Participants had the oppor- tunity to use laboratory equip- ment that few people in the state have.

"I've taught my share and I've put in my time. Now it's time for me," Sims said. In 1952, Sims began his teaching career at Abe Hubert junior High. He taught there until 1964, when he made the move to the college. He taught biology and anatomy and physiology. Born near Benton, Ill., Sims was the only child of a street- car motorman and his wife. "My father's occupation made for an interesting childhood for me," Sims said. "I can still remember riding in an open trolley car during the Kansas State Free Fair one year. It was great to be able to have those kinds of op- portunities as a childf' he said. During World War II, Sims was an engineer for the B-29 bombers in the Army Air Corps. "I really enjoyed what I was doing and when I got out of the service, I decided to go to school on the G.I. Bill to get my education," Sims said. "I found that I really enjoyed go- ing to school and I attended my share, believe me," he said. "I did my undergraduate work at the University of Kan- sas and finally ended up at the University of North Dakota, where I received my masters degree," Sims said. "I have attended the University of California at Berkeley, Kansas State University, Emporia State, Fort Hays State, and Colorado College in Colorado Springs, and I really enjoyed it," Sims said. "It was an ex- perience that I don't regret," Sims said. Attending school was the highlight of Sims' career as far as he was concerned. The next best thing was having his students thank him for pro- viding an opportunity to learn, and also preparing them for college. Topeka was home for Sims and his family before they relocated to the Garden City area. They saw the move as a great advance for his career as well as for that of his wife Gail, who was the secretary at Abe Hubert junior High for many years before her own retirement a few years ago. Sims planned to do some traveling abroad before settl- ing down to selling real estate. "Mostly, my retirement will consist of many vacations and a little time to get things done that I have put off for too long. just odds and ends, main- ly," Sims said. He didnit regret his career choice. "At the time I felt that I made the right decision and I still feel that way," Sims said. "I had first considered going into the field of medicine, but I got married and had a couple of kids and I decided that teaching was the right thing for me," Sims said. "Now it's time for me to step aside for the younger ones. We need good educators and I feel that I have served my time," Sims said.

His plans were to go into the construction business in Wichita. He had been Associate Dean of Vocational Education since 1968. At various times he taught all of the woodworking classes and during the Fall of 1986 semester he taught drafting, engineering drawing, com- puter drafting and architec- tural drawing. Before coming to Garden Ci- ty, Foltz taught for 15 years in various towns in Oklahoma. In addition to teaching industrial arts and education, he coached basketball, baseball, football and track. Foltz was hired at GCCC to help develop an industrial and technical education depart- ment. He worked as associate dean in charge of industrial education, cosmetology and ir- rigation technology. The technical program in drafting began in 1970. Building trades, auto mechanics, nursing, graphic arts and photography classes were later implemented under Foltz's guidance.

"I've always tried to instill pride in the industrial education students and make them a part of the college. They really are now part of the total program in Garden City," he said. High points of his career in- cluded the move to john Col- lins Vocational Building, the new additions to that building, and the overall growth of the program. "Generally, I've seen industrial education and technical education grow to where it is now, it serves the community well," Foltz said. Foltz's job was that of a teacherladministrator. He taught approximately 15 credit hours a week, including night classes, and regularly completed all of the vocational reports required by the State Department of Education. He considered his Furniture Refinishing and Repair class as more of a hobby than part of the job.

Q WE' 3 Everyone has something to gain through CHILD CARE Children's voices and laughter mingled with the every day sounds of college life as the new Child Care Center, located in the Penka building, became operational. Director of the center was Shelia Cole. She operated her own day care center in Lakin before coming to GCCC. Cole's feelings about the new center were optimistic, "I never worry about things not jiving. Directing the center is much easier than having my own business," Cole said. "The college takes care of most of the paperwork and all of the payroll for employees, so I can look forward to direc- ting my attention to the children," Cole stated. The center was established to serve several purposes: to meet the child care needs of student-parentsg as a place- ment center for practicum students in early childhood education, and as an observa- tion site for students enrolled in Home Economics. 'Tm very anxious to get this program rolling with the students in early child development," Cole said. "We Follow the leader-Day Care children take advantage of the nice weather and participate in their own version of follow the leader.

According to Edie jones, home economics instructor, "the center is beautiful sup- port for the parents and it's great for academics. We really have a multi-faceted oppor- tunity here," jones said. "We can help the students in several ways through the center." The program was open to children age two and a half through six years who have not yet entered the first grade. "The environment of the children's area is very bright and happy," Cole said. "We have colored bins for each child's belongings and they love to look at their photographs that we have mounted on the back of our door," Cole related. "We also keep a growth chart for the children so that they can keep track of their own physical stature," Cole said. "They get so excited when their mark gets a little higher," she added. The first group of children left their mark at the college when they were allowed to place their handprints in the newly poured cement around the center. Cole's assistants at the center were LaVelda Young and Barbara Moore. The center staff also included two Early Childhood Education majors, Karla Millershaski and Stacy Lenertz. "We only have an average of 13 children a day here out of a possible 20, but it's enough to keep us all busy," Cole said. "We have a fairly busy schedule for the children so there's not much idle time," she added. "Everyone has something to gain through this program," she said.

His approach to teaching was simple. He stressed a structured, yet flexible classroom situation. According to Kinder, begin- ning drawing students especially seemed to want some form of direction. "I feel they welcome that structure," Kinder said. "They want to feel as though they've gained something specific from the course." Kinder put a great deal of ef- fort into his classes, and in turn he expected a great deal from his students. "When a student takes my class, I ex- pect a lot, because I give a lot," he said. The first step in his transfor- mation of the program was separating Drawing I and Drawing II. This separation made it easier to concentrate on the specifics of each course. Students who enrolled in Drawing I spent their time learning to draw perspective, line drawings and value studies. Students enrolled in Draw- ing II concentrated on life drawing. Their models ranged from humans to animals to still lifes. Working toward perfection-Kelly Porter puts the finishing touches on his Hassignment' for Drawing I. The Art Department as a whole drew a variety of peo- ple, ranging from art majors to members of the community with an interest in art. Kinder's area of expertise was two dimensional work such as painting and drawing. He hoped that an additional instructor would be hired to take on the task of teaching sculpture and ceramics. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in painting from Bethany College in Lindsborg. Later, he went on to obtain both his Master of Fine Arts degree and Bachelor of Arts Education degree from Wichita State University. Kinder was absent from the field of education for several years.

Their duties not only included set- ting up labs for the biology students but also feeding the animals in the lab. Those animals ranged from a spider to a rat snake. "It keeps us busy," Overbay said. According to Ferranti- Ybarra, some background in the biological sciences was helpful when applying for the position.

Project: I Care offers students TQ EET Sz BEFRIE Project: I Care offered students from sociology classes an opportunity to meet and befriend young persons from the community. The pro- gram was initiated over 16 years ago by Sociology In- structor joyce Boone. The children chosen were those who were identified to Boone as ones who would benefit from personal, direc- tive interaction with a college student. Approximately 75 students per semester participated in the program. The students who volunteered for the project were given on-the-job training in understanding the pro- blems of younger children, ages four to 14, and in relating to those children and their problems. "Children in the community who need this type of help are selected and referred to the program by the social and rehabilitation service, the schools, and personal calls from concerned parents,', Boone said. "Many of the children have been in trouble with the law, are from minority families or from one-parent families or dual-career families," Boone said. "I sometimes get calls from children asking if they can join Project: I Care. Some have friends in the program and they would like to have someone care about them too 86 Project I Care!Academics -just like their friends have," Boone said. The project required each volunteer student to spend at least one hour a week with their child. The students then turned in a weekly progress report to Boone who checked the reports and then sent them to qualified counselors. A case study was required for the student at the end of the semester, recommending whether the child should be on the program the next semester. Students had the respon- sibility of introducing the children to community ac- tivities and showing them some of the simple things that most people take for granted. Many of the activities were supported by the community, including discount movie, bowling, and skating tickets. Free tickets to all college ac- tivities such as football, basketball, drama and musical events were provided for the children and the students. In the past 16 years, over 2400 students have par- ticipated in the program. "Some of my students were actually 'I Care Kids, themselves," Boone said. One such student was Freshman Shelly Goodwin. She began participating in Project: I Care when she was in grade school. "Unlike many of the other kids, I wasn't a kid from a poverty family. I just wanted someone to be my friend and spend time with me," Good- win said. "From an I Care Kid's point of view, the fact that someone cared about me was the most important thing. It really helped me get over the rough spots of growing up," Good- win said. "When I became an I Care student myself, the neat thing was that I had the opportunity to see the program from both sides of the fence," Goodwin said. 'llm kind of sorry the class is over for me. I'd like to take another I Care Kid-just for fun,', Goodwin said. Companionship-Two Project: I Care participants share a special mo- ment at the annual Christmas party.

AcademicsfProject I Care 87 Day and evening VARIETY GF PRGJ ECTS "We have students making everything from nightstands to entertainment centers," Building Construction Coor- dinator Curt Tarrant said. "You name it, everything you can make out of wood, we've made it." He was refer- ring to the various projects constructed in his day and evening woodworking classes. He taught two night classes and two day classes. The day classes were called Machine Woodworking while evening classes were called Beginning Woodworking. Adults in the community enrolled mainly in night classes. They were interested not in the credit hours but the projects themselves. Some dedicated adults have enrolled in as many as sixteen semesters of the course. Enrollment also increased when the new facilities in the john Collins Vocational Building were finished. "We're pretty proud of our enrollment," Tarrant said. He explained that there were 51 people enrolled in the five classes, which included a wood finishing class. The classes were considered full with ten per class period. The department added a new full-time instructor, Gary Barker. This was Barker's first college teaching job, he formerly taught high school industrial education at Lin- colnville. The change was for the bet- ter, according to Barker. "They're here because they want to be, not because they have to be. They're more eager to learn and a lot more pleasant to work with," he said. Most of the beginning students started with simple projects and moved on to more difficult ones as their skills progressed. "I made a dresser in high school and this gives me an op- portunity to build the mat- ching mirror frame," said night student Ron Kreutzer. As far as the classes combin- ed "they build all kinds of stuff, from real simple to com- plex projects," Barker said. Students in both beginning and machine woodworking drew their own unique plans. By building their own fur- niture pieces, Tarrant estimated that students spent only about one fifth of what they would have paid for the same item in a furniture store. The department purchased several different kinds of Squaring up stock-Ron Kreutzer runs a piece of walnut over thejointer. It was later used as the side of a mir- ror frame. 88 Wood ProductionlAcademics wood and supplies. The students kept a material bill and paid for the project when they were finished. They pick- ed their project as well as the supplies. "We don't dictate to a stu- dent what they should build," Tarrant said.

"We've been working toward this event the entire school year," Fletcher said. According to Fletcher the band had full sections in all areas and the students put in a lot of practice time. In addi- tion to full-band rehearsals, students practiced in sections and in individual lessons. "The fact that students are putting in this kind of time shows me that they're excited about their performance op- portunityf' Fletcher said. The group left for Manhat- tan Thursday, Feb. 12. They rehearsed that evening and listened to other bands the following day. The band played in front of three judges as well as an audience. "We had the second best rating among the community college bands," Fletcher said. They were second behind Hut- chinson Community College. Darain Atkinson, Garden City, was named outstanding trumpet soloist in the GCCC band. The entire trombone section was given high marks by judges at the festival. jazz Ensemble members were: Saxophones: Travis Pearson, Brad Andersen, Eric Magana, john Arellano, Matt Collins.

Soloists who performed at the festival were Magana, Webb, Atkinson, Stout, Mueller, Moss, Pearson and jones. The Instrumental Music Department benefited from expanded facilities. They gain- ed a new rehearsal area when campus expansion was com- pleted in early january. Band scholarships were awarded on the basis of what was needed in a particular in- strument section. Talent, willingness to play in more than one group and amount of involvement was considered when offering a scholarship. Auditions were required in order to be in jazz band. The pep band played at all home football and basketball games. Both bands presented concerts and jazz band per- formed at various community events. Enrollment increased in pep band by 15-20 percent and by 25 percent in jazz band from past years. A maximum of 20 could enroll in jazz band and the number for pep band was unlimited. "I'm excited about this new facility we have and also about the increased enrollment," Fletcher said.

He operated his own shop in Garden City. "I just want to jump in and do it my way, but I can't because they won't learn that way." Smith said of the dif- ficulties of teaching others what he already knew. Demand for auto body classes increased and those demands were met when a se- cond course was added to the schedule.

"The guys can relate more to me showing them and seeing how it's done than reading a bookf' The student's taking the class represented various oc- cupations, such as Ira Mann, agriculture instructorg Henry I-Iuber, truck driverg Dennis Mead, auto service shop owner, and Mike Tackett an employee of Inland Container. Most students had a par- ticular project in mind when they enrolled in the class. Mann restored a 1940 Ford 2-door sedan, Huber rebuilt a late model pickup, Mead dreamed of reconditioning a 1970 Roadrunner and Tackett repaired a 1966 Chevy pickup. Other students indicated "pet" projects as well. Everyone felt the class represented fun and pleasure rather than work, but dedica- tion and patience were re- quired. "Once you learn it, it's a breeze." Mead said. The Auto Body shop was one part of the fall semester expansion. Smith was very satisfied with the space and equipment pro- vided. "I don't think we could have contiued the class if it hadn't been built," Smith said. He appreciated the fact that the college allowed anyone from the community with a special expertise to make their knowledge available to the students.

PHYS CA EDUCATIG Kim Price, physical educa- , tion instructor, taught various lclasses to encourage students to stay in shape. Aerobics and lracquetball were two of the most popular classes she taught. l The term aerobics referred lto those activities which re- quired oxygen for prolonged periods, and placed demands on the body that required im- proved oxygen handling capacity. This process of exercise was used by many students to strengthen their body for sports or just for the fun of it. Price developed a program based on the individuality of the student. Through aerobics, Price taught her students self- discipline and a sense of ac- complisment, whether they were a rising athlete or an amateur. Students started class with basic tests of body fat percen- tile and a 12 minute walklrun. They then recorded the results for later comparison to measure improvement. Each student worked at his or her own pace and could quit whenever they wished. As a result, grades reflected effort, not ability. These flexible rules at- tracted a wider range of students. According to Price, those who had never before exercised regularly picked up easily on aerobics. To make aerobics effective, students exercised to either upbeat music fincreasing the heartbeatj or slow music for relaxing floorwork. The floor- work was used to exercise all of the muscles. Later, classes were limited to daytime only which made it harder for many people to fit exercise into their schedule. Price would have liked to see an evening course offered in the future for those who worked full-time or even teachers. Aerobics concentrated mainly on muscular improve- ment, while racquetball was designed to increase eye-hand coordination, develop quick feet, and even release tension. In addition raquetball was a sport which allowed for fast and easy improvement. "The inevitable success encouraged the growing popularity of the sport," Price said. While the students in aerobics were stretching and pulling, the raquetball classes stressed learning the basics. "Each student studied a hand- book on rules and etiquette before they began to work up their strategy," Price said. After this had been ac- complished classes really began to fall into place." Each day the students were taught a new skill or stroke by the instructor. She gave demonstrations, went over fine points, and then explain- ed why it was important. The students then had time to practice what they had learn- ed by scrimmaging among each other. The college provided easy access to the courts for students. New courts were ad- ded when the gym was ex- panded last year. "The students came to class mainly I because of the courts. By using them they didn't have to join a fitness club to exercise," Price said. Cardiovascular warm-up- Freshmen Betty Habiger and Shelly Smith pace themselves during their aerobics class in the gym. Academics! Physical Education 95 Jewelry ranges from rings to EHEATI NS Richard Herman's Silver- smithing I 85 II classes were some of the first classes to reach capacity at enrollment time. A wide variety of jewelry was made each semester rang- ing from rings and bracelets to more complicated items like necklaces and carved pen- dants. Credit was given for only two classes. However many students repeated the class out of interest alone. Herman took the class in 1976. He took over the task of teaching the course from Greg Harness four years ago. "I really believe it's an asset to the community, not only are they learning how to make things, they learn about dif- ferent metals, gemstones, diamonds and where these are available." Herman said. He also said that he has never All that glitters-is not gold. These rings are examples of projects done by students in Richard Herman's silversmithing class. 96 S1lversmithing!Academics seen the exact same piece of jewelry made twice. Some of the student's ex- pressed their reason's for tak- ing the class. Carolyn Salyer took it for the design aspect. "It's exciting to see design in a different form, dimensional opposed to flat." Ethel Hooper took the class six semesters. She had taken it when it was first offered but didn't enjoy it. She then started again and hasn't stop- ped. "I didn't care for it really but the main reason was I couldn't afford it. Now I love creating new things." Lesa Albers, a full time stu- dent, began the class because her mother had taken it. She found out it was a lot easier than she thought, "It wasn't as hard as I had expected." "People would think the cost is too high but it's not. It's a lot cheaper than you would think." Herman said. Many of the students preferred work- ing in gold rather than silver. "It's much easier than silver, and it's prettier." said jerry Sullivan, owner of Western Bit and Reamer. "That's fgoldj where the cost is, but I've seen most of the students bring old jewelryi they had or their parents andl grandparents had and that's fine." Herman said. The only requirement for taking the class was interest. Grades were based only on attendance and production .

Night students were given the opportunity to utilize their time and continue their educa- tion. The classes were offered Monday through Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. Night classes ranged from Autobody to English to Manual Communications lsign languagej. Some of the courses with high enrollment numbers were Autobody, Computer Programming, Con- versational Spanish, Upholstery and Woodwork- ing. Ten students were required to enroll in a class before it could be offered. Sixty-nine night classes were offered Spr- ing semester with an enroll- ment of 900 students. The majority of students were adults who were work- ing toward a degree, self im- provement or expanding a hobby. Several students repeated classes such as Silversmithing, Woodworking and Autobody. Many classes expanded to a second night to provide more opportunities for over flowing classes. 98 Night ClasseslAcademics Several people from the community taught night classes. There were 20 part- time instructors as well as several regular daytime in- structors. Instructors of academics classes were required to hold a college degree, while most of the crafts and vocational class instructors required ex- perience and skill. Welding and Trapshooting Instructor Ira Mann said he enjoyed the supplementary check. However, he did not teach night classes entirely for the money. "I have made a lot of friends over the years, and I like teaching adults, they are more mature and tend to get more things done, " Mann said. Mann also believed the non- stop three hour class was an advantage for the student. "It gives the students a chance to get started and be able to work without turning around and putting everything up," he said. The evening classes were supervised by Assistant to the Dean of Instruction Emerson Stewart. Stewart was on cam- pus each evening to assist in- structors and students. He was also in charge of evening enrollment. All night classes were con- ducted under the same re- quirements as day classes. In- structors were evaluated and monitored on their perfor- mance.

Academics!N ight Classes 99 100 OutreachlAcademics Program started to accommodate COLLEGE OUTREACH Eleven years ago a program was initiated called Outreach. The purpose of the program was to make college courses available to surrounding com- munities. Eight counties were selected and the largest town in each was the designated location for the classes. The towns included Dighton, Healy, Scott City, Leoti, Tribune, Syracuse, Lakin and Deerfield. A coor- dinator was named for each county. One of their jobs was to listen to the community in order to determine what courses should be offered. They then reported to the col- lege which classes were in highest demand. The coordinators also did all of the enrollment, grade sheets, paperwork, and were responsible for turning them in to the college. In between all of the decisions and paper- work they were also required to evaluate the instructors. All together-Students of Dennis Elam's Defensive Tactics class prac- tice a Kata. Outreach opportunity-Clarice Kohlhorst takes advantage of Jim Talley's computer class in Syracuse. Gene Schneider, Dean of Community Services, was in charge of Outreach. According to Schneider, "The coor- dinators were in tune with the community and encouraged participation in the program." The typical student varied from town to town. High school students were allowed to participate if they had com- pleted 15 units towards graduation. "Some high school counselors encouraged students not to attend for fear of them missing out on the high school atmosphere,' Schneider said. 1 Many students were adults who either graduated or had recieved their GED. "Older students were adults who were anxious to return to school. At first it was hard for them to adjust because they had a more mature attitude than the younger students, but they caught on easy and found that returning to school was more than they had an- ticipated," Schneider said. "Most adults took the courses with a particular goal in mind, to help their job economically or to gain or perfect certain skills," he said. The most widely chosen classes were computer related. "With technology advancing at such a pace, everybody wants computer literacy" Schneider said. "This knowledge of computers may help them keep or advance in their jobs." "In Leoti, the employees of the courthouse enrolled in a class to help them learn a new computer system that was be- ing put into use," Schneider said. Tuition for courses offered was S16 per credit hour, mak- ing it no different than courses taught on campus. Academics!Outreach 1 O 1 9th annual The 9th Annual Endow- ment Association Scholarship Auction netted over 538,949 for academic scholarships. The auction featured a Mar- di Gras theme complete with live jazz entertainment, jumbo gulf shrimp, clowns and costumes. Over 200 items were donated by local businesses and individuals for the even- ing festivites. The site of the auction was the 3i building on the Finney County Fairgrounds. A trip to the races, a Silver Bullet basketball with Bobby Knight's autograph, a used car, a tailgate party, homemade bread for a year, and jewelry were just a few of the items donated. "I was thrilled by the sup- port and generosity of the community for their effort and help in getting this all together," Endowment Direc- tor Sheryl Handy said. "The help of the students and alumni was absolutely outstanding. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with on this," she said. According to Handy, the auction seemed to have something for everyone. "The selection has been big- ger and better every year. Auction Endowment G E I , I RDI GRAS This year we had a wide varie- ty and a lot of unique items because that seems to appeal to people," Handy said. "The most unique item donated was a set of Denver Bronco tickets. They are uni- que because they are not readi- ly available due to the fact that they are always sold out years in advance," she said. Donated by Denver physi- cian and GCCC alumnus Paul Taylor, the tickets were com- bined with hotel rooms. High bidder was Mary Beth Williams of Garden City at 51,525. Two drawings were held during the evening. GCCC Business Manager john Dickerson won a 550 gold American Eagle coin valued at 5500. The coin was donated by Western State Bank. Curt Harman, Garden City, was the winner of 5500 in cash donated by Landmark Federal Savings Association. Coors of the Southwest and Coca-Cola Bottling Co. donated beverages for the event. "We had a crowd of over 750 people and we served 200 lbs. of shrimp, 25 dozen jumbo pretzels, 17 kegs of 'beer and an uncountable amount of soft drinks," Handy said. "The crowd gets bigger 102 Endowment AuctionlAcademics every year and the auction is becoming a successful social event for the community," she said. In 1986 the Endowment Association awarded more than 577,000 in academic scholarships to 262 students. Fifty-six students received 56,100 in loan funds on a short term, emergency basis. All loans were repaid by the end of the year. In the past eight years, En- dowment Association funds have provided more than 5367,000 to assist over 1,500 students. The Auction itself has raised a total of 5155,519. "Thanks to the support and the generosity of all who have helped, the assets of the En- dowment Association have grown from 540,000 eight years ago to over 5522,000 in 1986," Handy said.

The staff consisted of Round Up provides opportunities Training tool for students Noticeable changes in the student newspaper, the Round Llp, occurred over the past Your years. When Larry Walker took Jver as adviser in 1982, the paper was in its 34th year of publication and was being printed on campus. Walker :hanged the format of the paper to a tabloid and in- stituted other layout and design changes. New facilities were added for the staff and according to Walker, "it gives us our own area to do our work in." anywhere from five to 15 peo- ple on the average. The pur- pose of the Round Up was to inform the student body of campus happenings. It was not designed specifically as a publication for journalism ma- jors. However, the newspaper did attract many journalism majors. The Round Up served as a training tool for those students. Vivian Rice, returning staff member and editor, enrolled in newspaper because she was interested in journalism and wanted to improve her writing skills. Reporter Tim Beims, ajour- nalism major, commented on another positive aspect of be- ing part of the Round Up staff. "You get an opportunity to write and I like to write. It's fun, it's interesting to go out and do interviews and meet people," he said. The paper was printed off campus at the Garden City Telegram and was published every two weeks. The Round Up was printed on Thursday afternoon and distributed on Friday. The newspaper cost approx- imately S100 per issue to print, and the money was taken from the Fine Arts Division budget. Around 1500 copies were distributed on campus and mailed to other community colleges and universities. According to Walker many opportunities were available for staff members. There were positions for writing, layout and design, advertising and photography. During the fall semester, Craig Sharp earned a percen- tage commission on ads he sold for each issue of the paper. In the spring, Kent Davison's advertising class took over the job. Since the paper came out once every two weeks, it re- tained a magazine style with the emphasis on features rather than straight news. In the future, Walker hoped to make the paper a weekly publication. "Eventually, I'd like to see it become a weekly," he said. With the growth of the campus, he felt that goal was a reasonable one.

Sandra Buell placed first in Keyboarding, a typing com- petition completed during class and mailed to the judge to be graded. Buell was employed by accountant, Shirley Messenger. Stephanie Skipper placed first in Office Support Assis- tant. She was given a series of tasks such as typing, taking messages and simple math. She was employed at Taylor Bs Associates, Consulting Engineers. Constance Winkler placed third in Administrative Assis- tant, third in Extemporaneous Communication, an un- prepared speech on a chosen subject, and sixth in Prepared Verbal Communications. Winkler was employed at the college business labs. Lucinda Henson placed se- cond in Office Support, third in Keyboarding, and was employed at the Garden City Recreation Commission. OEA placed all the girls at their jobs. According to Marsha Bayless, sponsor, OEA was very practical even for people who weren't thinking of business careers. It taught practical skills and helped train for a more professional job. "When the girls are finished with their program, they usually stay with their jobs and work full time. Very few go on to a four year college, but the one's who do use their knowledge to get a higher pay- ing job to help with the ex- pense of college," Bayless said. Bayless had been teaching Office Education for 12 years. "We do many activities and stress leadership, even if so- meone wants to work towards computers, I would recom- mend this progam," she said.

The total cost of producing the rodeo was between 54,000 and 155,000 The money was raised by Rodeo Club members through program advertisement sales, conces- sions and ticket sales. Each contestant paid an average entry fee of S38. The entry fees were later used for prize money. Out of the 378 contestants there were 435 entries in the events offered. The rough stock events included bareback, saddle bronc, and bull riding. Roping events were calf-roping and breakaway roping. In addition there was steer wrestling, goat tying, and barrel racing. The rodeo action broke for a chicken chase and pig scram- ble. Area elementary children participated in those two events. "I thought the rodeo went real smoothly.

Laura Kreie, president, ex- plained that the club was more of a support group than a religious group. "We are just a bunch of students who believe and share the same ideas," she said. Newman Club began the year with a membership drive which consisted of a barbecue complete with hamburgers, hot dogs and all the trimm- ings. This effort to interest students brought about 11 to 12 members. The members had common goals-to be in- volved in campus activities and share fellowship and ideas. Connie Reimer was faculty SGA advisor of Newman Club. Ac- cording to Reimer, they started the group in order to strengthen the students' religion. It also served as a place for those students away from home to share their religious outlooks with others. Through various types of volunteer and social work the club provided a learning ex- perience that its members ap- preciated. Helping out the community was their most ac- tive area of service. Students spent time during November and December cooking and serving meals as well as doing odd jobs for Em- maus House. "This activity gave them an opportunity to help a lot of people that they normally would not have met," Reimer said. She also said that through help from the school they prepared dinner boxes for five needy families in the com- munity. Also, in order to make the holidays more enjoyable for the needy children, the stu- dent body donated toys that Newman Club members distributed. The club also helped with Reach, an organization for the mentally handicapped. Newman Club sponsored-a Las Vegas night where Reach Participants played various games and gambled for play money. "Helping with Reach allow- ed the students to see a dif- ferent perspective and unders- tand different people," Reimer said. "With the help of faculty members Therese Blyn and Marge Meyers, the students were provided with new experiences and a stronger religion." Blyn and Meyers assisted the club in their various cam- pus and community activities. Helping others-Sophomore Greg LeBlanc aids a Reach member during Las Vegas Night.

The goal of the task force was to pre- sent indepth information concerning the recruiting practices and programs. It was through the ideas of these task force members that the Student Ambassador program developed. The overall aim of the program was to increase enrollment through the involve- ment of students, faculty and ad- ministrators. The role of the student Ambassadors was to serve as a liason between the com- munity at large and the campus itself. Each spring the Endowment Associa- tion selected four outstanding Kansas students who applied to the Ambassador program. The criteria for applicants was strict. To be eligible to apply for the S1500 Presidential Scholarship applicants had to be seniors in the top 10 percent of their graduating class. They were to have been active in their school and their com- munities and they were required to pre- sent at least three personal recommenda- tions from persons in their communities. In addition, the prospective applicants underwent a personal interview with a selection committee, as well as providing a typewritten summary of their 'future goals in their chosen fields. "The students chosen are what we feel to be the most outstanding young people in Kansas and will well represent this col- lege to the best of their ability," Endow- ment Director Sheryl Handy said. The student Ambassadors served as hosts and hostesses for prospective stu- dent visitsg acted as campus guides during summer orientation days, spoke to civic clubs and community groups, visited area high schools and acted as hosts and hostesses during Homecoming and Parent's Day visits. "Ambassadorships give students the oppportunity to work with people of all ages and to give them a better understan- ding of the life on a college campus," said Bill Bryan, Ambassador advisor. The current Ambassadors felt they had gained much more from the program than just the job itself. For sophomore Ambassador Mike Weatherred, a secondary education major with an emphasis in counseling, the pro- gram gave him a chance to meet with students on a one to one basis. "I've gotten a behind the scene look at things, and it's been good experience for the future, where my career is concerned," Weatherred said. Weatherred felt himself to be rather shy in high school but after two years as an Ambassador, he said, "l'm more self confident now and I'm more conscious in meeting new people now. The experience has been very beneficial for me, personal- ly. Freshman Ambassador, jill Kueker, an architectural engineering major, found H the program to be exactly what she need- ed. "I come from a small community with a small high school and I was very shy. I wanted to be more out going and positive with people and this was the way for me to do it," Kueker said. Phil Gilbert, a sophomore majoring in industrial engineering, found that the program allowed him to participate in ac- flvities that regular students don't have the opportunity to. "As an Ambassador I've been able to at- tend dinners, the Endowment Associa- tions Phonothon Social, and other special functions like that. Without this pro- gram, I'd never have had the chance to do those things," Gilbert said. While giving tours of the campus, Gilbert found that he enjoyed sharing his ideas about classes and instructors that visitors were interested in. "It makes a person feel proud when he can show the positive aspects of his school to other peo- ple. It's really been a beneficial education for me," Gilbert said. Ambassador Alaine Baker, a sophomore majoring in occupational therapy, learned to be more assertive in meeting people and she found that she was more influential in campus activities. "This program forces you to learn things about the campus and faculty that a student normally wouldn't learn," Baker said. "In doing this, you are acquir- ing the knowledge that makes prospec- tive students want to attend school here," she said.

It struck on March 23. Many schools were closed and roads in and out of town were blocked due to hazardous travel conditions. The blizzard was one of the worst in 30 years. But it wasn't the last of winter. Another storm hit a week later. It began as drizzle and progressed to a full blown blizzard. More than 10 inches of snow fell, stranding motorists and blocking highways. There were power outages and motels, churches and gymnasiums served as shelters. The National Guard was called out for both storms. The Guard served not only in rescue opera- tions, but also in transporting employees in essential jobs to and from shifts. The storm caused problems all over town. The Garden City Ex- periment Station experienced gas pressure problems, causing con- cern, especially for the greenhouses. The aviary roof at Lee Richard- son Zoo collapsed causing a loss oi around 20 birds. St. Catherine Hospital went on auxiliary power and hospital per- sonnel used dispatch radios and beepers. And, probably most importantly to college students, classes were called off for only the second time in recent history.

Trailways requested to abandon most of its bus routes through Kansas but was rejected because of the convenience the buses gave our communities. After mon- ths of negotiations and pro- posals Sunflower Electric and city officials reached a concen- sus on a 26-month agreement. A multitude of local businesses closed. Some of those included Norris Drug, Meschkes, Mark II, Garnand Furniture, and after almost a year of going out of business sales and new owners, Fur- niture World finally closed its doors.

Halstead officials found our city inadequate and began looking at Dodge City as a possibility. Last year Finney County topped the Kansas growth rate. The high rise in popula- tion caused some concern. The high school alone would have to house 1000 more students by 1990. Several attempts were made to solve this pro- blem.

Homocide cases multiplied. Residents fought it out in local bars, some arguements resulted in death. A killer was on the loose claiming the life of one 21-year old girl and leaving her body in a cornfield south of town. A 27-year old man was found dead at his home in Holcomb. Yet another victim was found slain in his Garden City home. A suspect was discovered, he fled, and was not found. As a result of brutal crimes being committed so frequent- ly, the death penalty was debated in the legislature. Those who argued against it pointed out that the bill would cost S50 million before one ex- ecution was carried out. Twinkles the elephant died on Oct. 30 after 17 years at Lee Richardson Zoo. She was 23 years old and in young adulthood for an elephant. Twinkles was in the process of being traded at the time of her death. Officials believed her death was caused by stress which resulted in a heart at- tack. Twinkles was replaced by two baby elephants named Moki and Chana. Among the hired, fired, and retired were Mike Hayden, Gary Dick, Gerald Moseman, Malcomb Obourn, Jim Phifer, Fred Brooks, and Dean Wiley. Mike Hayden became the new govoner of Kansas after a close battle with opponent Tom Docking, Gary Dick became a new commisioner for Garden Cityg and Gerald Moseman became the USD 457 superintendent when Jim Phifer resigned. A series of Garden City Telegram stories outlined the school districts reimbursment procedures that sent more than S100,000 through Phifer's hands during his 20-month stay here. Fred Brooks, editor of the Garden City Telegram since 1970, retired. July 1 marked the end of more than three decades with Deane Wiley as City Manager. Bills passed by our govern- ment included liquor by the drink, parimutuel betting, and a Kansas lottery. Construction dropped one- half of what it was in 1985. The former Fansler Tires Building was razed. And the remains of the Presbyterian church on 7th street, which was destroyed by fire two years ago, was still standing. The new church was built north of town and services were moved there in November. ln Review!State and Local News 129 f f ,,M 1, i , fm, 1 L 1 W f 41 ,J wif ,Z 1 'Z fr fe , n 5 J, Aff-Q f 'A' ' k , ' fx NZ, 4 Ai, 5 , a 3, V " L1 f W' r M M Q 44,3 ?
