How about when the city was sweltering and chaos descended upon GW 7 That ' s more like it! Recall moving in, registration, buy- ing books: all the unwelcome confu sion which is inevitable in those first weeks of fall semester. There is the registration process that never fails to baffle seniors as well as freshmen, and the lines in the bookstore which one can never quite beat.

Yet, we all man- age to hang in there and see it through. You see, everyone knows that the horrors of the first week of school are merely part of a weedmg- out process. So, if you can only sur- vive, you know you ' ve got it made for a while. (Just about until mid-term exams creep up). Crowd appreciates lecturer outside library. Today ' s topic?

After waiting months, you get to see old familiar faces you’ve actually seemed to miss over the sum- mer. There are reunions taking place everywhere; in the streets, in dorms, on the newly opened subway, or in bars and other student hangouts. There ' s so much to catch up on and so little time. Friends ' new apartments must be investigated — that great new place in Crystal City; summer adventures must be shared — that glorious cross country trip; and most of all, you ' ve got to be sure that friends are still the same beautiful people that you left behind. (Who knows what their parents may have 9 Rep Mo Udall (D Arizona) zeros in on a point Speaking in the Marvin Center Ballroom done to them?) It ' s all so happy and carefree with ample good friends and no studies to cloud the mind. But, alas, all good things must pass. Before you know it you ' re sitting m a lecture hall madly scribbling notes as if you’ve never been away from it at all. And the work begins to pile up and up and up. There ' s no escaping it — you ' re automatically behind the very first week, when you ' re handed five 10 One of Washington ' s many free hotels Farrah is going to be jealous guys. A rare a very rare, quiet moment in dorm life 12 syllabi, all of which have enough read- ings, exams and papers to keep you busy all semester in just one class. But you ' re not in high school anymore they keep telling you. You ' re in college now, and they keep telling you that you ' re here to learn. So, you learn to be a paper factory, how to cram for exams, and how to pull all-nighters. You become so familiar with the inside of the library that you could write a book about it. And you read, and read, and read some more. You write and type until your fingernails are worn down to nothing. But, finally, it is over and you feel the joy of satisfaction; satisfaction that you’ve done your part for the economy by keeping manufac- turers of highlighters, paper and blue- books in business. It ' s OK to breathe again. Most of the pressure is gone for the time being. So, quickly, before it all returns, you must take advantage and enjoy; get rowdy, celebrate, visit friends. Really — isn’t that all supposed to be part of the college experience? I mean. Mom, Dad, I’m only trying to have a truly meaningful semester so you ' ll get your money ' s worth. Isn ' t that what it ' s all about? An unusual speaker at his post on a bench outside the library Not sponsored by the Prooram RrtarH 13 At GWU, one finds a number of dor- mitories, scattered, among the school ' s department buildings. Sur- prisingly, each has its own unique rep- utation built up over the years. For an entering freshman it is hard to choose which dorm to live in from the brief description in the GWU housing broc- hures. Yet after living on campus for one year, the student has become familiar with the various buildings on a first hand basis and can choose the dorm best suited for him. ■ ' WsbBm ill Three piece suit jungle — The Old Executive Office Building The dorms differ in varying degrees, in numerous aspects such as activities, atmosphere, size and condi- tion of rooms, and occupancy. These are seen in all the dorms: Thurston, Mitchell, Crawford, Madison, Strong, Calhoun, and the newest addition, Francis Scott Key. If I don ' t find my contact lens I ' ll never be able to see the exhibit s " 1 ' ' 1 fr DlMOCK GALLE 16 1 ’i Thurston Hall, more commonly known as the " Zoo,” is probably the dorm with the most activity. From fire alarms at 1 :00, 2:00, and 5:00 a.m. in the morning, to floor parties, dorm council and its programs such as the ‘‘Gong Show,” block parties, and floors competing with each other in co-ed sports, special interest floors such as pre-med and pre-law. Thur- ston is a dorm of unending chaos, excitement, noise, people and frustra- tions. Mostly occupied by freshmen, life in Thurston is a totally new social environment clashing with the adjust- ment to college studies. For a fresh- man it is an ideal dorm because it is an introduction to every possible aspect of college life. 17 Shopping on the way to class A softball game with Lincoln as the coach 18 Shouldn ' t judge a book by its cover. Thurston Dorm with drab exterior. But, life does exist inside, and parties and parties and . . . Located around the corner from Thurston, is Mitchell Hall, a total opposite of Thurston in dorm life. The atmosphere is a mixture of tension as the seniors await letters from gradu- ate and medical schools, of silence only disturbed by an occasional tele- phone’s ring or closing elevator. Mitc- hell is designed for the studious upperclassmen, but provides a sense of relaxation as students take time out for an occasional social gathering. Gone are the blasting of stereos and water fights in the hall, replaced by students hard at work over their books. Perched on a bench in front of Madison 19 Crawford is centrally located on campus providing easy access to the library, the Marvin Center, and many other university buildings. The dorm provides much more independence for the students left with the decision to study or party. The dorm council is That’s right, a little apple juice before beddy bye and I don’t even have to turn off the lights 20 back Five weeks ago. very active in promoting programs for the students, such as spaghetti din- ners, and holiday parties. The stu- dents are friendly and get to know each other well since there is a rela tively small number of students living on each floor. 21 Located at the opposite end of the campus from Thurston is Madison Hall. It is not as active as Thurston. It is a smaller dorm and due to the arrangement of each floor, socializing is not as favorable. A student has to go out of his way to meet his neigh bors because he is cut off from parts of the hall by fire doors. There are no major floor parties in the dorm but many individual parties among friends. Life in Madison, for many, is just perfect. The school has set aside two uni sex dorms. Strong and Calhoun Hall for females and males, respectively. Strong has relatively few parties that involve the whole dorm. Usually there are speakers or other programs involving the school such as the lan- guage department, who will get together to meet with the students over refreshments. The dorm is quiet and therefore provides an atmosphere for good studying in the rooms. The doors are usually open so one can meet her neighbors and get to know them well. Street vendors offer one in every shape, size, style and color to fit our student body’s discriminating taste 22 Calhoun Hall is mostly occupied by freshmen and males on the sport teams of GW. Having all the athletes together promotes more friendships between them and helps the team in spirit. The dorm is noisy, but not at all hours of the night because the ath- letes need their sleep. A new addition to the dorm list this year is Francis Scott Key. Mainly occu- pied by juniors and a few seniors, the dorm is the most unique of all the dorms. Each triple or double has its own kitchen offering students a cheaper way to eat if they choose to stop the meal plan. The dorm is noisy on the weekends, but quiet on the weekdays showing consideration for the rights of others on the floors. So far the dorm is doing well and student life has been promoted to a level of maturity and independence. So goodnight — sleep tight, and don ' t let the cockroaches bite! 23 2 - Yet, not everyone lives in the dormi- tories. Many students move out of them after their first year or so of col- lege; some live in apartments or town- houses easily accessible to campus; still others have been commuting every day for what may seem like ages. If you fall into that category of commuter students, then you know the frustration involved with missing buses or subways, bumper to bumper traffic, and waiting forever for a place in the parking garage. Or, perhaps you’ve seen your day at traffic court or had to have a boot removed once or twice. Travel isn ' t the only problem encountered by students commuting. They aren’t able to have the same kind of relationship with other students that a resident student is able to develop by living with other students. They can’t just run down the hall and borrow someone’s notes, or race across campus to look up last minute research in the library. It ' s a different life which definitely takes some getting used to. But, many find it |ust as rewarding as living in a dorm, and perhaps much freer. Whether resident or commuter we all share one thing in common, the city of Washington. On the back of souvenir postcards the phrase " The Nation ' s Capitol” is printed. But |ust as the postcard picture does not show the full picture of Washington, D.C., Washington D.C. as the nation’s capi tol is only the tip of the iceberg. Wash ington is a city of museums, embas- sies, lawyers — a city of people and the city thousands call home. The monuments are interesting pieces of marble handicraft and they make nice Kodak snapshots. But, the people of Washington are the most interesting aspect of D.C. They range from the First Family at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to the man sleeping on the hot air grate in front of the Corcoran Art Museum one block away. Although people in 3 piece suits and many high heeled paper shufflers abound the sidewalks during lunch hour, they are not the only people to be found; there are blue-jeaned students, uniformed maids and custodians, taxi-cab driv- ers, secretaries, cops, street vendors, waiters, elevator operators, and gophers (go fors) as well. These peo- ple are just that — people, no differ ent from people the world over; no better, no worse. Nourishment for the long hours ahead in the library The thing that sets Washingtonians apart from other city dwellers is that they can walk o r drive past the White House and not have the urge to take a picture, they have given up asking why to triplicate forms and they know what G.S. 2 stands for. Washingtonians — the true Wash- ingtonians, have a tendency to forget they are surrounded by power. They might forget that the next person they see on a busy sidewalk could be run- ning for president in the next election, or involved in the next scandal. They just don’t seem to notice the black lim- ousines floating through the |ungle; they have given up wondering ,- who ' s inside and where are they going? " Washingtonians glamorize them- selves in their home publications: The Washington Dossier, The Washingto- nian, The Star, The Post and the newly formed Washington Journalism Review. 27 I don ' t know what he ' s talking about but it must be interesting ’cause every body else is listening to him. ♦ 28 " Content of donor’s blood is pure grain alcohol. Rejected.” Some people see Washington as a city of concentric circles — the White House and Hill elite in the center core. Hill workers and agency workers sur rounding them, the press covering them, and the maintenance people keeping things looking like they are running smoothly; and finally anyone who doesn ' t fit into those groups. All this is reflected in the writings by Washingtonians about Washington. I |ust finished typing a 30 page paper on the Russian neon sign industry, took two mid terms, and I (eel |ust great! What are you complaining about? 30 Look ma, hairy armpits! We do have diversity in Washington, D.C. Washington in the Spring with cherry blossoms, in the summer with extreme heat, in the Fall — foliage transplanted from Vermont, in the Winter — emergency alert, all because of two inches of white stuff. Is this Washington? It’s hard to define a place other than giving its statistical information or sounding like a tourist information bureau. You guessed it! Sunset in Washington, D C 3 ! Washington is a city that has become noted for its outstanding cul- tural institutions, providing students with a chance to educate themselves beyond the limits of the classroom. The Kennedy Center ' s half-price stu dent discounts and the Smithsonian Institution ' s free admission, offer stu- dents diverse and exciting ways to spend their leisure time. The Smithsonian presented their eleventh annual " Festival of American Folklife " in the Autumn. Normally held during the summer, the Festival was instead presented for a week in Octo- ber allowing more students an oppor- tunity to see it. Highlights included a special program entitled " Native Americans, ' ' presenting the musical styles of five Indian tribes. Music of the Black Community, and of Virginia folk culture. Such demonstrations as Dusk highlights the oldest Smithsonian building 32 I cider pressing, bread-baking and ham curing recalled the times of another era and kept mouths watering. A special exhibit of Matisse ' s cut- outs drew many students to the National Gallery of Art, while the Ren- wick Gallery provided students inter- ested in crafts with exhibitions by some of America’s leading craftsmen. Students interested in sculpture find the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden has one of the most impres- sive collections of world wide sculp- ture, including Matisse’s “The Backs’’ and Moores “King and Queen. " The Museum of History and Tech- nology, a fascinating visual documen- tation of the United States, is also a source of research. Such landmark inventions as Bell ' s telephone, and Whitney ' s cotton gin are on display along with 16 million other artifacts. 33 Lunch without the lines at Macke The Museum of Natural History is world renowned for its anthropological collections, and natural history study specimens. The National Air and Space Museum meticulously traces the development of air and space travel; from the Wright Brothers ' Flyer and Lindberg ' s Spirit of St. Louis to the backup vehicle for the Viking mis- sion to Mars. The Kennedy Center provides stu- dents a chance to see the best in the performing arts — theater, ballet, and 34 Anatomy of a closet floor music. One of the most acclaimed the- atrical productions of the year was an eight-week run of A Chorus Line Other plays presented during the 77- 78 season included Jason Robards in a revival of O ' Neill ' s A Touch of the Poet, and Henry Fonda and Jane Alex- ander in First Monday in October For students interested in dance and music, the Kennedy Center pro- vided a dazzling array of the finest dance and ballet companies, along with music by Washington ' s own National Symphony. Washington DC is a home. If you live in Washington and you are out at night, you can always tell if it is after midnight or not because the lights on the Washington Monument turn off at midnight. Cinderella would have loved it here! 35 36 I Marvin Center 39 Student Activities Office The Student Activities Office is the most important office on campus to most student organizations. If you need a box of paper clips and can’t fig- ure out how to fill out that dreadful form — I think its called an Interde- partmental Procurement Form — they ' re always there to help and patiently explain the procedure, (for the hundredth time). Nothing is too much to ask of them, and no problem is too insignificant. But, the biggest joy is that this small group of individu- als generate a phenomenal amount of energy and enthusiasm. ’’Service with a smile! " Director, Rita Goldman Secretary. Scott Dykema Editorial Assistant, Diane Hopper 40 Assistant Director — Programming, Claudia Derricote Assistant Director — Orientation, Gary Salussolia 41 Program Board 42 I he GW Program Board began the year with a commitment to provide entertaining and intellectually stimu- lating programs to the GW commu- nity. To accomplish this goal meant the implementation of programs in the fields of performing arts, political affairs, cinema and video, as well as parties, concerts and regular Rathsk- ellar programming. And what a year it was! The social committee started off with a rock concert in the Marvin Cen- ter featuring “Dave Allen’s Romance Band” and “Smalltalk,’’ two local rock bands. Watermelon, fast becoming a tradition at the Labor Day Bash, was in abundance as were those familiar Pro- gram Board frisbees. Trick or treat? 43 Other social programs of note included the Latin Disco dance. Co- sponsored with two Latin-American student organizations, the dance fea- tured the SALSA sounds of " Creadon Latina, " a thirteen piece orchestra that kept the dance floor packed all night. October did not end without the tra- ditional Halloween party. This year’s party featured the dynamic " Johnny’s Dance Band, " a well-known group from Philadelphia. Also in attendance at the party were: David Bowie and his brother, a pair of walking dice and a very mischievous R2D2. 44 Perhaps the best way to sum up the achievements of the social committee for the Fall semester is to recall the " Grover Washington Junior Concert. " In late November, the acclaimed jazz saxophonist from Philadelphia shared his special brand of magic with an enthusiastic GW audience. The Performing Arts Committee began its year by bringing the interna- tional cast of " A Chorus Line” to GW. Led by dance captain T. Michael Reed, the cast members lectured on show biz life and the role of the chorusline dancer. 45 Other performing arts events included poetry readings, mime, and dance performances. Performing Arts ended the Fall semester with “Catch a Rising Star,” a hilarious improvisa- tional nightclub act from New York City. It was also a great year for political speakers. The Political Affairs Com- mittee hosted such distinguished speakers as Representative Morris Udall, Senator Dick Clark, Senator Orrin Hatch, Representative Millicent Fenwick and Senator Frank Church. Subjects ranged from the controver- sial Panama Canal Treaty to the situa- tion in South Africa. The Political Affairs Committee also co-sponsored a speakout against rape and an aca- demic awareness seminar. The Films Committee celebrated the 50th anniversary of sound film with the first talkie, “The Jazz Singer. " Other great film presentations included: “Rocky,” “Carrie,” “Net work, " and “All the President’s Men. " Spring semester brought such fea- tures as Woody Allen ' s “Annie Hall” and Al Pacino in “Dog Day After- noon.” The Rathskellar Committee intro- duced a new series of programs including a jazz coffeehouse and an open stage night for student perform- ers. “Jazz at the Top” featured local jazz musicians and helped create a new atmosphere of intimacy in the Rat. On " Open Stage Night " the spot- light turned to the talented GW stu- dents who came both to perform and to cheer on friends and roommates. Along with these new programs came the standard fare of Monday Night Football, Thursday night discos, and that familiar cry, “Pizza 91 .” One can’t forget the Video Commit- tee, an ad-hoc committee experiment- ing with the video playback of the best GW programs. Feature presentations included a discussion of President Carter’s Foreign and Domestic Poli- cies with a panel of GW political sci- ence professors and an interview with the " Penthouse Pet of the Year. " The Graduate Programming Com- mittee sponsored several social func- tions. One such activity featured the mellow sounds of “The Wallace Roney Septet, " a GW jazz favorite. The Committee for Special Pro- gramming co-sponsored a Quad con- cert featuring the “New World Band Show " as well as the annual Interna- tional Student Society Dinner. Behind the scenes. Program Board members worked hard to coordinate all these events. The Advisory Com- mittee, along with members of the Executive Board, also worked toward better communication between the Board and other student organiza- tions. Surveys, questionnaires, meet- ings and forums filled the few empty spaces on the Program Board calen- dar. 48 49 GWUSA GWUSA President Joe LaMagna. GWUSA, the student government at George Washington University, in its first full year of operation, dis- puted a $108,000 budget and at the same time revised the guide- lines for the budgeting. Along with the budgeting, the Student Association made arrange- ments for a comprehensive evalua- tion of courses taught at GWU. Many students were asked to fill out a very impressive IBM card in the hope that course selection would be made a bit easier. Again this year a Student Direc- tory will be published and distrib- uted throughout the campus. In the Fall semester an Academic Aware- ness Seminar was held and stu- dents voiced their complaints and selected speakers from Rice Hall spoke. For the Spring a Homecoming weekend has been approved and should be held on the weekend of George Washington ' s Birthday. Vice President Kelli Kauffman 50 51 52 53 The Hatchet 55 Omicron Delta Kappa ODK President, Steve Landfield, addresses a luncheon for applicants Omicron Delta Kappa is a Leader ship Honor Society. The motives which guided the founding of the Soci- ety sprang from a desire to bring together in one body for the general good of the institution all leaders in the various phases of college activi- ties. The founders were convinced that such an honor society, properly conducted, would offer maximum opportunities and experiences in cooperative effort for more effective leadership and service in the pur- poses, interests and needs of the insti- tution, and for the maintenance and improvement of the unity and democ- racy of learning and citizenship responsibilities. Membership in ODK is awarded to undergraduate junior and senior stu- dents, to students of graduate and professional schools and colleges of the institution, to members of the fac- ulty and administration, and to alumni.

Yet, a quick glance at GW’s debaters easily dispels any previous myths you may have had about the nature of debaters. The first thing that strikes you is that debaters seem to enjoy them- selves and what they’re doing. Always joking, forever laughing, GW debaters can seem more like a bunch of high schoolers leaving for a class trip than debaters departing on a tournament. Yet, underneath this deceiving appearance of frivolity and care- lessness lies a deep and serious commitment to a strange and won- drous activity — debate. The desire to debate is like a winter cold, once you get it, you can’t seem to get rid of it. There is just no other way to explain why debaters choose to spend their leisure time in the library, or prefer rising at 7:00 on a Friday morning to travel for 6 hours to a tournament, instead of sleeping away their free day. So next time you see someone carrying an oversized briefcase, several legal pads, and a clothes bag at some strange hour of the day, don’t stare at him in disbelief, or conclude that he’s another strange product of GW, or be afraid of talking to him — for he’s only a GW debater, and he’ll readily change any strange notions you have about debate. 59 JAF The Jewish Activist Front is a coalition of students who share cer- tain beliefs pertaining to Israel, American Jewry, and current global developments. They believe in the importance of keeping world Jewry united behind the state of Israel. They are com- mitted to strengthening Israel by all means possible including immigra- tion. They try to improve the level of Jewish identity among their fellow students and to defend the right of oppressed brethren to rediscover their heritage. In order to achieve these goals, JAF exists as an independent, non- violent student group that sponsors programs of an educational, social, and cultural nature. They also cooperate with other student groups who are working for the redemption of oppressed people everywhere. President Glenn Cravez (left) presides over a meeting of the Col lege Democrats. College Democrats Traditionally, the George Wash- ington University College Demo- crats has been the largest and most active campus organization of the Democratic Party anywhere in the nation. The 1977-78 academic year was no exception, with member- ship approaching 200. Their activities extended in many directions; the Virginia gubernatorial campaign, an exten- sive campaign to provide speakers from Capitol Hill and the Carter Administration, and non-political activities such as dances and " hon- orary” roasts. Senator Frank Church and Con- gressman Morris Udall, two ex- presidential candidates, were among the speakers the College Democrats co-sponsored. The College Democrats moved into issue involvement, providing a forum for debate. Commuter Club The Commuter Club had its origins in a series of gripe sessions for com muting students held at the beginning of the Fall 1976 semester. The com- mon denominator among all of the off campus students seems to be their grievances over parking, parking tick- ets, the buses, and now, the subway. And grievances are what the Com muter Club keep coming back to. New people will go to a meeting with the intent of just sounding off about a problem before a sympathetic group, and end up joining so they can do something about it. Progress is slow, especially when they’re trying to build a new organization around such a div- erse and scattered constituency. But the occasional triumphs are well worth it, and slowly but surely they’re creat ing a social community for commuting students. 62 63 The Association for Students With Handicaps The officers make plans for future activities. While only the first year in opera- tion, the Association for Students with Handicaps has made a big impact on campus. Composed of disabled and non-disabled students, its activities began with a major seminar on the problems facing the disabled. This was hosted by GWU President Elliott and included 10 representatives from m jor national organizations con- cerned with the needs of the disabled. The organization was very active in helping the university implement Sec- tion 504 of the Rehabilitation Act; they set up a central information office on subjects affecting the disabled; they have been involved in coordinating research and academic programs of concern to the disabled; they have helped stimulate new research and internships for students; and they have initiated a speakers bureau from among their membership to speak in classes and before organizations. Awareness activities have included movies, guest speakers, a wheelchair basketball game, an exhibition of work by disabled artists and a carnival mini-olympics for individuals who are mentally retarded. The goal of the organization is to make GWU a completely accessible facility to individuals with all forms of disabilities and to help them to work, to learn and to live. 64 F i Kappa Kappa Gamma Delta Sigma Theta 66 WRGW Station Manager Elliott Wis er 67 GWU Folkdance . 68 69 D.C. PIRG D.C. Public Interest Research Group is an independent student run and directed, research and advocacy organization that has worked for polit- ical and social change in the District of Columbia since the Fall of 1972. Uni- versity-based, PIRG serves as a practi- cal extension of the theoretical college education. Working with a profes- sional staff to provide necessary expertise and supervision, students become involved with numerous pro- jects and issues related to the univer- sity, community and nation. As the community benefits from the unique resources offered by the university environment, students, either as vol- unteers or for academic credit, are able to apply the research and analyti- cal methods learned in the classroom to a variety of problems. Whether or not they become civic leaders, the PIRG experience helps them become more responsible, aware members of their communities. Issues that PIRG at GWU has researched include: Health Care, energy and utilities, redlining, free- dom of information, age of majority, housing discrimination, security deposits, marijuana decriminalization, toy safety, human rights, and other areas of consumer protection. 70 During the 1977-1978 year many changes, including a new office and a new director, have continued to stimu- late the growth of D.C. PIRG at GWU. Their time was occupied in the Fall with publishing the quarterly newspa- per, helping the passage of the Con- trolled Substance Act (marijuana decriminalization), finishing the Adams Morgan Resource Service Guide, and publishing the Women ' s Health Clinic Guide. To attain Vista positions for the D.C. community, D.C. PIRG with the aid of their National Office wrote proposals establishing the areas of need. Distribution and discussion in the community and at GWU of the Women’s Health Guide, along with preparation for the “Sun Day” in May and an investigation of jury polling are included in their plans for the rest of the year. 71 72 73 Cheerleaders 74 Black People’s Union 76 77 Pre-Law Society 78 ■ 79 Serve 80 81 Officers: Michael C Trahos President Richard T Kenney Vice President Ronald S.

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde appeared at the Marvin Center Theatre October 13-15, 20-22. The play, produced by the Department of Speech and Drama, is a witty and satirical comedy in which two young men seek the hand of two young women in spite of social obstacles. The obstacles are no more serious than the young men: one has very lit tie family background, having been found in a handbag at Waterloo Sta- tion; the other has lived a life of indo- lence for so long that there is some doubt that he has the energy to fall in love.

What ' s up? The Servant of Two Masters, written by Carlos Goldoni, was performed in the Marvin Center Theatre November 10-12, 17-19. This highly delightful comedy begins when Truffaldino undertakes to serve two masters, thereby to collect pay from two sources. Unknown to him, one of his masters is a woman, Beatrice, mas- querading as her own brother so that she may search for her lover, Florindo; the other master is the man for whom she is searching. The play’s compli- cated plot grows out of Truffaldino ' s attempt to keep secret his dual employment. 95 Created and Directed by Jack Guidone CAST Johe Barbiere Anne Day Gil Ebner Jack Guidone Sandra Kammann Scott Miller John Pruessner Carla Marks Sabloff Susan Ellen Stein Juan Valentin 96 A master behind the scenes. 97 8 Smith Center It was back in 1935 that basketball coach. Bill Reinhart, promised fresh- man Bob Faris that before he would graduate he would be playing in a new gymnasium. Coach Reinhart was a little prema- ture, by about 35 years. On Monday, November 17, 1975, that long awaited dream finally arrived as the Charles E. Smith Center for Physical Education and Athletics officially opened its doors. Most people agree it was well worth the wait, for besides being home to all GW ' s intercollegiate squads, the Smith Center is more than that. Its facilities serve the entire GW community. 100 There are seven handball and two squash courts, a beautiful eight-lane, 75 foot swimming pool (just great for taking a quick dip during exam week in May,) a weight room, jogging track, auxiliary gym for basketball, steam room, and the most popular room of them all, the 125 X 125 foot artificial- surface main arena where students can watch their favorite athletes per- form in everything from Colonials Bas- ketball, to Virginia Slims and Volvo Classic Tennis Tournaments. Bob Faris may not have seen a new gym before he graduated from GWU, but today he is proud to be the direc- tor of the finally realized dream. 101 The Student Athlete So, you think that he’s just a dumb jock and only good for reaching things on high shelves? And, you say she’s terrific on the court but that women athletes just aren ' t feminine? You heard they don’t go to classes ’cause they’re in front of the mirror flexing their muscles? Wait a minute! I don’t know where you’ve been sweetheart, but I don ' t think we’re talking about the same campus. Listen, I’m talking about GW and our athletes don’t belong shoved into that stereotype you’ve got polluting your head. They’re individuals and, believe it or not, they’re real live stu- dents. In fact, I know you ' ll find this hard to take but I sat next to one in class the other day, and unfortunately he beat the hell out of me on the exam. Hey, do you think maybe gymnas- tics is my thing? 103 Colonials Soccer: The Epitome of Team Work Some call it the rage, while oth- ers call it the great American soc- cer boom. But, no matter what they call it, they ' re all talking about, and applauding the recent wave of pop- ularity breaking over every soccer field in the country. And no team more richly deserves to ride on the crest of that wave than our own GW soccer team, the Colonials. The Colonials are a team in the true sense of the word. No one player can be singled out as being the key. Together, with nimble feet and good heads, they meet their opponents in a game of speed, agil- ity and fun. Because, although the practic e is hard, the hours early, and the energy enormous, the play- ers really enjoy the competition. They welcome their opposition as friends, not only on the surface, but from within themselves. 104 Patrick Fasusi using his head in a tight situation Kevin Dill showing superb footwork Preparing the mind and the body for a little competition 105 i • Teamwork is the name of the game. I y . ; -- . v’ . •. • v ' — • - -- 4 •%:. X v - Goalie Jeff Brown. Who could look more natural in such a position? 106 Coach Georges Edeline, Asst. Coach Eddie Bannourah, and GW Booters. The excellent personal attitudes of the players was evident to any fan who followed the outstanding perform- ances of the Booters this past season. The team has played consistently well, both home and away, against the stif- fest of competition. The Booters were able to show their great strength with a stunning victory over Howard Uni- versity for the Capital Conference Col- legiate title. This impressive defeat of Howard, a team ranked 5th nationally, assured the Colonials of a spot in the NCAA tournament. Only a winning team can produce a winning season. And fortunately GW is honored with both. The team is con- sidered by many of the most talented team to play for George W ashington in a great many years. However, despite its great success on the field, this uni- que group of individuals often goes unrecognized by the student body. When any group of students shows the character, dedication and ability that these players have shown, how can anyone give up the chance to share their victories with them? 107 Women’s Crew The GWU Women ' s Crew team at the boathouse on the Potomac. Name 14 girls at GW who rise at 7:00 in the morning five days a week, to don their sweats, and you ' ll guess the members of the GW Women’s Crew team. This year the team faced a rebuilding process because no mem- ber had any prior experience in the art of rowing. But that didn ' t phase first year coach Linda Dragen, a former Olympian, in the least as she and her women began to form the nucleus of a fine crew team for the coming years. Though the team had no prior expe rience they did learn the rigors of competing, traveling to Mt. Holyoke College in Massachusetts and facing Georgetown and Trinity in a meet in November. In the future the program will prob ably be buoyed by the regulations set forth by Title IX which will include, among other things, scholarships to deserving crew persons. 108 Stroke! Stroke! Stroke! A beautiful place to row. 109 Men’s Crew At 5:45 every morning. Coach Tim Cullen and Asst. Coach Joe Creed, work with a dedicated group of GW athletes on the banks of the Potomac. They make them run, row, and work with weights until they’re in top shape, which really shouldn’t seem unusual for an athlete. And it’s not. But their dedication really has to be com mended considering the time they tram and also the fact that crew is a rather obscure sport in the eyes of most GW students. All that most stu- dents know about the crew team is the sight of several young men in sweat suits struggling into the cafeteria for breakfast. But, I ' m sure any member of the team would tell you that its all worth it in the end. For example, take the Frostbite Regatta, which was probably the highlight of the Fall season. GW came in second only to the University of Pennsylvania. That was only one of several exciting and rewarding experi- ences. 1 10 Women Place Second In most circles, the arrival of the 1977 George Washington University Women ' s Volleyball season merely marked the start of another Fall ath letic season at the Foggy Bottom cam- pus. With five letterwomen returning from the 23-12 campaign of a year ago, five newcomers, plus a new coach, the hope was for a smooth transition into the Colonial system. But transition wasn ' t the word for it as the Buff started off with a bang, defeating Penn State at University Park, Pa., and promptly went on to win their next six contests, returning home feeling on top of the world with a 7-0 mark. Following a defeat at the hands of Howard in the Smith Center, a trip to North Carolina restored belief and inspiration in the mind of Coach Frederick and her squad. The Coloni- als capped a two win two loss perform- ance in the UNC Greensboro Invita- tional at Greensboro, N.C., with a vic- tory against previously undefeated Mississippi University for Women. In Eastern Regionals Following the trip to North Carolina, the team went on to win nine out of their next eleven, one of the losses coming at the hands of a highly touted University of Maryland squad 16-14 in the rubber match of the evening. After winning seven of their last nine matches, the Colonials closed their regular season with a 25-8 record and anxiously awaited a possible bid to the Eastern Small College Regionals. GWU got the bid and was seeded sec- ond in the sixteen team Regional staged at Binghampton, NY. In pool play competition the Buff defeated Navy and Salisbury State, enabling the Colonials to advance. They were defeated by the number 1 seed, East Stroudsburg State, Pa. Reigning as runner-up in the East- ern Regionals is no crime. 113 Squash This year the GW women ' s squash team, led by Coach Snodgrass, upgraded its schedule and attempted to develop new players. As GW does not draw experienced players. Coach Snodgrass must work with beginners. Things came along nicely this season, but it takes time. And, only time will tell. 114 Badminton 115 Women’s Basketbal No. Name Pos. Hgt. Class Hometown 21 Linda Barney G 5-5 Fr. Lancaster, OH 13 Laurie Cann G 5-5 Fr.

Head Coach Bob Tallent The GW Colonials headed into the 1977 78 season in a new situation, for this would be a season with no Pat Tal- lent or John Holloran to spearhead the offense. Instead, the team concept would come into play with Coach Tal- lent expecting the scoring to be evenly shared up and down the line. Returning from last year ' s 14 12 squad, was Les “High Rise " Ander- son, a strong forward whose turna- bout lump shot from the low post is virtually unstoppable with his great leaping ability. Teaming up with him on the front line were Tom Glenn, a Youngstown, Ohio native, whose sweeping, often acrobatic moves to the basket delight the crowd, espe- cially when the end result is a dra- matic slam dunk. Heeey! Take away my gusto? Tom Glenn hustling for a rebound 122 Aaah! What could be sweeter than the thrill of a well earned victory? Transfer Daryle Charles finally gets a taste of the action when he becomes eligible on Jan. 16th. A big win over Wisconsin brings deserved recognition from Ronald McDonald and company. 123 The hands have it. Bob Lindsay, always giving 100%. Transfer Brian Magid (right) helps announcer Johnny Holliday broadcast the games while he estab- lishes his eligibility. Any good ball club needs guards who bring the ball upcourt in a hurry and pierce defenses with good outside shooting. Tom Tate and Bob Lindsay filled those requirements admirably. Time and time again Tom Tate would be called upon to direct the offense, bringing the ball upcourt while at the same time calling the appropriate plays. A steadying influence on the team, Tom’s ability to breeze through zone presses with his sure ballhan- dling and unequaled passing ability got the team out of many a close call. Tom’s partner at guard this year was fellow Ballard High School gradu- ate, Bob Lindsay, a tranfer from the University of Florida. Early in the sea- son Bob showed the fans that they could expect the best. A hard-driving, determined athlete who can just as easily pop in a twenty footer coming off a screen as he can drive to the bas- ket leaving his opponents strewn all over the court. On defense Bob can get underneath with the big boys tak- ing his share of rebounds. 125 The heart of a good team is the man who plays the middle, and none could have played the middle better than Mike Zagardo. For a sophomore to shoulder the great responsibil- ity of being the only true center on the team, Mike did his job well at both ends of the court. On defense he clogged the middle making penetration difficult, while at the same time pulling down what seemed like endless rebounds. Bob Lindsay shows Maryland who ' s boss in the most electrifying game of the season. Mike Zagardo using every inch to GW’s advantage, six teet and ten inches of absolute beauty. 126 Les Anderson meets Maryland’s Albert King. On the offensive end he kept his opposition at bay with his sweeping hook shots and tough rebounding. And what about the rest of the Colo- nials? To label them as the bench is totally misleading because they spend very little time there. The secret of the team concept is that everyone does his share, and a player contributes whether he starts or comes off the bench. Guard-forward Bucky Roman, a for- mer all Metro selection, constantly came off the bench to pump in needed points, many of them of the long- range variety, while at the same time helping to start the deadly GW fast break. Always close behind, was Mike Samson, whose hustle and hard- nosed defense drew praise from coaches and fans alike. GW vs Maryland . . . and the fans say it all. 127 Tom Tale shows off the best ball handling around. T.G., a real crowd pleaser. Two newcomers this year wasted no time in making their mark on GW. From Ballard, freshman Curtis Jeffries showed the ability to shoot well in heavy traffic and held his own on the defensive end; while Daryle Charles, a transfer from La Salle, showed a keen sense of the court, picking up count- less loose balls while also being an adept ball handler. Rounding out the team were senior Tyrone Howze, newcomer Glenn Dixon, and sophomore George Dukas, the only walk-on player on the team. One cannot speak of the Colonials without mentioning the coaching staff of Head Coach Bob Tallent, and his assistants Len Baltimore, Tom Schneider, and Bob Shanta. 128 • George Dukas, the only walk-on player, gets a special cheer from the crowd. Mike Samson lets no obstacle stand in his way. Much of their work is never seen by the average fan, but what they do is the lifeblood of the team. Their work, whether it is the proper way to posi- tion for a rebound or the intricacies of playing a zone press, pays off during the season. Another aspect never seen by fans is the scouting trips, whether they be to Maryland or to Madison, Wisconsin. Curtis Jeffries, on the ball Finally, but certainly no less impor- tant, are the Colonials’ managers. Senior Ksawery Wyrozemski, affec- tionately and more conveniently known as " Ski,” and junior Doug Winkler are always ready and willing to do their job with a smile. GW Basketball certainly is a team concept, the athletes, the coaches, the managers, and yes, even the fans who can’t help but cheer for a group of " Tallented” young men they’ve come to love and respect. 129 Men’s Swimming and Diving 130 131 Women’s Swimming and Diving Better balance and added depth are the key words for George Washington University ' s women ' s swimming and diving team as it prepares to meet head-on with an upgraded 1977-78 schedule this winter. Five scholarship swimmers and div- ers, including three returnees who competed in the National AIAW Cham- pionships, will bolster the Colonials ' attack. Add several talented walk-ons, and GWU appears to have the depth it lacked in the program’s infancy. " I have confidence that we ' ll be able to strengthen our overall pro- gram this year,” said Soma Clesner, who is in her second year as women ' s swimming coach. " I know one thing that we did strengthen — that is our schedule.” New entries on the Colonials’ swim- ming card this winter include peren nial powers Johns Hopkins, Maryland, and Pittsburgh, in addition to a com petitive metropolitan and regional schedule. " I have high expectations for all our divers this year,” said Carl Cox, GWU ' s women’s diving coach. " We have the material. It’s just a matter of how badly the divers want success.” With GWU All-American diver Ann Jordon ' s departure through gradua- tion, junior Chris Napier, who com- peted last season in the national AIAW diving championships, returns as the Colonials’ veteran diver. Joining Napier will be freshman Jeanme Dahnk who has the potential to place high in the nationals early in her colle- giate career. 133 Wrestling 134 ' » JMBL pm; 1 NAME WT.

In the finale against Trinity Beth Kaufman won her second close call in the number one singles position with scores of 6-4, 7-5 while the sec- ond singles player revenged a previ- ous defeat at the hands of her oppo- nent, winning two out of three sets. Esther Figueroa won the third singles match with no trouble at all, shutting out Trinity in both sets. On the dou- bles side, the teams of Pam Struhl and Cori Miller, Valerie Kind and Brenda Best, closed out the afternoon sweep with easy victories. The great showing in the last two matches left Coach Shelia Hoben opti- mistic about the upcoming Spring season. Men’s Tennis 138 139 GW Baseball: A Monument in Itself How many times while walking by the south lawn of the White House have you stopped for a moment to stand and stare at the historic building which so proudly overlooks the Ellipse? Probably more times than not. And even if you don ' t ever stop, I’ll wager that your attention is always directed toward the White House. You ' ve seen that all before, it’s noth- ing new or exciting. If you simply turn 180 degrees and looked slightly to your right; there, in the shadow of the White House, you may see a group of highly talented individuals doing their damnedest to keep baseball in the hearts of everyone. Yup, you guessed it! That’s exactly where the GW base- ball team plays during the Fall and Spring seasons. And I’ll tell you, the Buff can provide some exceptional baseball viewing to fans. Coach Toomey has said that this is probably one of the best teams he has coached in his three years here at GW. Anyone who has seen them play knows that it can’t be far from the truth. Still, the Buff ' s fall record did not exhibit their tremendous talent and potential. The team had problems with consistency; some days they had the hitting without the pitching and vice versa. The team lost seven games by one run. But the fall season is merely the " Spring Training,” and it’s for getting an idea of what you can count on in the Spring. Going into the Spring, there are some exceptional players to look forward to. Pitcher Mike “Bear” Howell takes to the mound. Lead-off hitter, Billy ‘Buck " Goodman. 140 Coach Toomey and team at home on the Ellipse. Bob Bose P Ken Lake P IF Mike Conley OF Paul MacMahon OFC Bob Dwornick IF Tino Monaldo OF Don Eury IF Ross Natoli OF Craig Floyd P Rick Pacen P Bill Goodman 3B Kevin Phillips P Barry Goss IF Vince Quiros C Jim Goss SS Russ Ramsey IF OF Mike Howell P IF Drew Ingram IF Coach Mike Toomey Bobby Keith P Asst. Coach Joel Oleinik Jim Goss turning two. Ml Knowing that every man is pulling for you Jim Goss, a good defensive short stop, has hit 360 consistently. Only a lumor, Jim is considered by many as a pro prospect, having been scouted by the Major League Scouting Bureau, the Cincinnati Reds, and the New York Mets. Anchoring the left side of the infield along with Jim is third base- man, Billy Goodman. Billy, the lead-off hitter for the Colonials, has good hands, a super attitude, and lots of poise. The Colonials are strong, not only on the field, but also on the mound, where the quality pitching staff is led by Bobby Keith and Mike Howell. Bobby is a hard-throwing southpaw, who compiled a 6-0 record during last Spring’s drive to the play-offs, while Mike, probably has the greatest vari ety of all the pitchers, throwing the fastball, curve, slider, and changeup. Beside the team ' s great ability, they also have a unique group spirit which Vinme " Rodent " Quiros. anticipation M2 seems to make their work as a team so natural. The members of the team enjoy playing the game together and they also spend much of their free time outside of baseball together. One relationship feeds the other, and before you know it that good buddy attitude is obvious on the field. It is reflected by those familiar good natured encouragements to, Ross " Doc " Natoli, Craig " Pink " Floyd, Vin- nie " Rodent " Quiros, Bob " Minnie " Bose, Mike " Bear” Howell, and Bobby " Kitten " Keith, to name several. But, the spirit of the team would not be justly portrayed without the mention of senior Paul MacMahon. “Mac,” a Buff outfielder, keeps the players on their toes, and always fired up with his respected leadership ability. With such a young team, this role is often extremely important and, in fact, most times absolutely necessary. and satisfaction. U3 Intramural Athletics Three thousand students can’t be all wrong — intramural athletics at George Washington University has finally arrived, with both the men’s and women’s department of intramu- rals conducting various programs ranging from wrestling on the men ' s side, to weight training for the women. For the women, such activities as clinics in squash, gymnastics, weight training, jogging and raquetball have drawn favorable responses. One of the most popular activities is Martha’s Spa, a unique lunch time fitness club, offering GWU women a slimnastics program, conditioning, a sauna and pool, plus a track for jogging. The men have such sports as touch football, floor hockey and the ever popular basketball, with wrestling and badminton rounding out the field. f W i 1 I 44 145 An important aspect of the pro- grams is that they provide jobs for approximately 100 students, students who officiate the contests, run the equipment rooms and even put in a few hours in the laundry room. For those who desire co- recreational activities, then they can turn to co-rec volleyball with over 165 persons par- ticipating, raquetball or a mixed dou- bles tennis tournament.

There were times . . . when I was ready to go charging in and take on everything and every one in sight. I knew not what that would entail, but it really didn’t matter because my spirit and enthusiasm were ready to carry the ball through any obstacle, no matter how seem- ingly tall and sturdy it was. . . . when the light dawned, and I real- ized that my professor in Magazine Editing wasn’t just kidding when he said, " Remember, trust no one and check everything twice. " . . . when I couldn ' t wait to get to the phone so I could tell everyone the fan- tastic news. . . . when I felt like the only possible solution was to steal the nearest car and skip town before anyone knew. . . . when I couldn ' t wait for the end of a long hot day of classes — monot- onous lectures in stuffy rooms — to escape to the cooling relief of a quiet office in the Marvin Center to let my creative juices flow. . . . when disaster struck and a roll of film got lost, or destroyed, or was just plain lousy, and besides it was already a week late. . . . when I couldn’t have been more proud. . . . when I was so embarrassed that I wished that I could have hidden among the shadows on the walls. . . . when I wanted to take a picture of the Penthouse Playmate and put my name under it. . . . when I came to my senses. . . . when I laughed. . . . when I screamed, cried, and tore my hair out. . . . when I knew that the reason " you only go ' round once in life " is because once is enough! Sandy Gough Editor, 1 978 Cherry Tree 250 . I wished that I could have hidden among the shadows on the walls. . . . and put my name under it. . . . and skip town before anyone knew. 251 The Cherry Tree Staff Gail Arnold.

Lisa Garrigan and Henry Greenfeld deserve more than I can ever possibly give them. In addition to their hard work and dedication, they always kept people smiling when a lit- tle bit of humor was greatly appreci- ated. Of course, all other staff members did their share and I hope that they know that all contributions, no matter how seemingly insignificant, did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. I ' d also like to thank Bob Thomp- son, Liz Panyon, Mr. Gebhartsbauer, Barry Grossman, Carl Cox, Jodi Sum- mers, Rich Zygadlo, Mike Toomey, Mike Peller, Ray Deltz, Doug Gould, Berme Swam, Nader Mehravari, Paul Dempsey, Chris Register, Andy Adil, Rick Goldberg, Rappoport Studios, and The Public Relations Office. The book wouldn ' t have been possible without their help. — SSG 254 M I 0 A
