" Morning What walks on four legs in the morning? " " The m orn ing of life is like the dawn of day, full of purity, of imagery, and harmony. " Chateaubriand Childhood shows the man as morning shows the day. — Milton Look upon every day as the whole of life, not merely as a section; and enjoy and improve the present without wishing, through haste, to rush on to another. — Richter 1 1 Student Life Reminiscences Of An Old Co-ed In the good old days of about forty years ago, when the heavy chain was pulled across the entrance to the campus (at that time about forty yards from the flag pole) and locked every night at eight o ' clock, and West Hall was boys and East Hall was girls — and the twain weren ' t supposed to meet — and Sanford and Lewis were not, and the post office and Library were in the Administration building, and the little store was in a cubby hole (and across from it, a barber shop) at the old side entrance to the Dining Hall — well, in those days boys were boys, and girls were restri It was a time without blue jeans . . .a time when sun-bathing was a " never on Sundays " and smoKing was forbidden on the Administration building ' s steps. Every student looked forward to dates, especially the freshman girls, because they were allowed just one a month. Bare feet and shorts were no-no ' s and talking from windows was considered cause for a major call down. Girls and boys caught lounging or sprawling on the grass by the ponds were severely reprimanded. No male and female could sit together in the library without written permission from their parents. Ah, the good old days at GSC.

Haunted House From October 27-30 the Program Planning Class ot the GSC Recreation and Parks Society held their annual Haunted House. The tundraising event was presented both to the community and to the GSC students. This year the event was held in the old Music Building on campus. Special eftects, including eerie music, strobe lights, and nets, were used to intensity the haunting mood. Student Life 2 1 Masq u ers Pre sen t The Korean War ended four years ago. But you ' ve been carrying a secret load with you ever since. You ' re a morphine addict. Now your wife is pregnant. (And she doesn ' t know your secret.) But your brother does, and you owe him a couple thousand. You owe your father, who is coming to visit. You owe your supplier, who is coming to collect. It ' s all coming down around your head. So now the real fighting begins. Of Rain " Nowhere else but in America could someone so little- known rise so fast and go so far. " Douglas Kiker NBC Today Show Correspondent WITH r ARTHRITIS 8 s , ' ? ' c r ° s Today ! Is This Cot-tuh Country? Or Grits And Politics Don ' t Mix By Susan Clary Georgia Southern, every student on your campus is a celebrity In fact, Southerners from Texas to Virginia to the farthest tip of Florida now hold nationwide acclaim We ' re an enigma, a " peculiar " people, a fascination from our pea-pickin ' drawl to Mother ' s fried chicken and grits. With the advent of Jimmy Carter, the South has become a national fad Northerners, and many Southerners were amused when Carter announced his candidacy But his hard drive to Madison Square Garden soon changed the " Jimmy who ' s " to admiring claims of a unified party and a sure-win candidate The South can ' t help but be a little proud. Like him or not, Carter ' s from home and the vision of a Georgian in the Oval Office soothes egos that have been battered too long But this sudden renown has caused a national interest bordering on the ludicrous Magazines, books, and TV documentaries delve into the eccentricities of the South and its people TIME magazine devoted 70 pages of its September 27 issue to " The South Today — Carter Country and Beyond " According to TIME, the South is " complex and contradictory, a mix of modern and ancient, traditional and futuristic " Carter has given us confidence and " an almost metaphysical feeling " that we are " moving at the heart of the world " Where is the rest of America moving 9 The issue presents a long-winded revelation of the " New South " from our Bible-belt Christianity to the fact that Savannah, Georgia, Montgomery, Alabama, and Lubbock, Texas hold the three highest murder rates in the nation It denies the stereotypes of " barrel-bellied redneck sheriffs and chanting, chaingang Negroes, " but glorifies " good ole boys " and Southern belles made of " magnolia and iron In Its attempt to eliminate stereotypes of the past it creates new ones that may be even harder to swallow The good ole boy sports nicknames like " Goober " and " Goat " and dresses up in decorated T-shirts and jeans He drinks gustily with his buddies and avoids women at mixed gatherings. In fact, TIME says, he " doesn ' t really like women except in bed " A portrait of the Southern male we can be proud of And did ycu know that a Southern lady is not pregnant, she is " in bloom " or " her bees are aswarming 9 " According to TIME, some of our most cherished idioms include girls being " ugly as homemade soup " or " pretty as a speckled pup, " rain " coming up a cloud, " and a good life " just a slide on a doughnut " We owe our changed society to the " spread of TV and the airconditioner, " and we ' ve been reunited with the North by " seeing the dreaded Yankees up close on the evening news. " New business opportunities are " cropping up like peanuts " We ' ve got tire companies in South Carolina, Swedish Volvo assembly plants in Virginia and Japanese zipper-makers in Macon, Georgia. We also seem to hold the copyright on evangelism Apparently the South abounds with perspiring camp meeting preachers and sheet metal signs along the roads warning of spiritual doom TIME calls this the " language of piety " Is it really Southern Religion 9 But the biggest fascination seems to be with the Southern dialect In an earlier issue TIME presented a glossary from " Cot-tuh Country " According to a writer from Baltimore and an editor from Brooklyn, " candit " is what Cot-tuh is, " fust " is where he hopes to finish; " sup- pah " is what a " Watt House " dinner would become, and " goo-buhs " are the last cose, of cose The South is unique, as is the North, the West, and the Southeast We ' re growing economically, spiritually, ecologically Maybe we need a little propaganda after years of being scapegoats, but we don ' t need to be the nation ' s newest fad. The fascination may fade if Carter is elected, but if it doesn ' t, we may be seeing Cot-tuh Country, U.S.A. What a prospect. Student Life 27 Speakers Come To Southern " Philosophy is the process which starts you thinking. It does not ask what is the problem, but asks the question behind the question. What makes you think the problem is a problem? " Dr. Gregor Sebba Professor Emeritus Emory University " I never expected anybody to go to the moo less be a part of an Ap Dr. " Jimmy Carter will be elected President in November. " 28 Student Life " Rape can happen to anyone, male or female, and it happens to both . . You are in more danger here (on a college campus) than you were at home. The atmosphere makes you feel secure, so you take short- cuts. " Carol A. Kope New York Deputy Sheriff Sex Crimes Investigator " There is no censorship of books in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) because we never distort a piece of art. " Horst explained that when courses in literature are taught, the works are analyzed from a Marxist point of view and the connections of art and reality are discussed. Ilde Horst Professor Teacher of American Studies at Humbott University in East Berlin Liberal Arts And World Of Work Conference " A liberal arts background is important, but not enough " surfaced as the theme of this April 1 conference. The aim of the conference was to have speakers and a panel discussion inform students of the value of a liberal arts degree after graduation. The speakers included Dr. David Spence, research associate for the Southern Regional Education Board; William S. Judkins, a vice president of Coca-Cola USA; and Dr. Prince Wilson, vice president of Atlanta University. The conc lusion 7 Business and higher education need to work together. Industry must help decrease the illusion that there ' s no place for liberal arts people and the educational world needs to give students more practical guidelines and skills. 30 Student Life " Every day ' s experience shows how much more actively education goes on out of the schoolroom, than in it. " Unknown Buc-Buc: A New Craze During winter quarter, Sweetheart Circle became the cen- ter ot a new sport, known as buc-buc. This new form of competition is between the men ' s dormitories. One team of men form a human chain by standing in a line and bending forward a full 90 degrees to grab each other ' s waist. The opposing team then sen d one member at a time to break the chain by leaping off their opponents ' backs. Before achieving success, a variety of leaps and bounds have been taken, meanwhile dissolving the crowd of spec- tators with laughter. Student Life Star buck and the Hamilton Movement Perform A dance-concert was held in the Hanner Fieldhouse dur- ing the fall of ' 76, featuring two talented groups, Starbuck and the Hamilton Movement. The Hamilton Movement performed first, setting the mood for Starbuck. Starbuck came onto the stage playing " Snap, Crackle, Pop " to a very enthusiastic crowd. During their performance they played two hits, " I ' m A Lucky Man " and " Moonlight Feels Right, " highlights of the evening. Student Life ' ' Stop The World, I Want To Get Off " Cary Jackson hides behind the mask of Littlechap — a self- serving, ambitious, rags to riches character. Amy Smith, the female principal of the show, parades first as Evie — then Anya — as well as llsa and Ginny. Four faces in one. Together they lead the chorus and clowns of " Stop The World, I Want To Get Off, " the Masquer ' s winter quarter production and only musical this year. 38 Student Life Student Lite . ' 39 Stephen Stills Gets Hot Stephen Stills appeared in a fall concert here at GSC dur- ing November. His performance, which truly displayed his musical talent, included rock, blues, and country. He sang to a full Hanner Fieldhouse in a typical Stills-style; how- ever, his soft music couldn ' t control his temper as eviden- ced by the verbal barbs he shouted at the audience during the concert. 40 Student Lite Student Life 41 CELEBRATION The Religious Activities Committee at GSC in conjunction with the First United Methodist and Pittman Park Methodist sponsored CELEBRATION II on the weekend of April 29- May 1 . The Pat Terry Group opened the weekend on Friday night with a concert in the Hanner Fieldhouse. " Spirit, " from Wesley Foundation performed prior to the Pat Terry Group. Saturday began with an informal concert by " His New Creation, " a singing and ministering group, and a general session of commitment followed by workshops throughout the day. The workshops were led by Audrey Campbell, a counselor in the guidance department of GSC; Jim Mcllrath, director of Youth Ministries of Perry United Methodist; Sylvia Evans of Valdosta who travels throughout the Southeast ministering in seminars and weekends; and Tom Beauregard, counselor for King ' s Kid ministries and personal manager for " His New Creation " of Winter Haven, Florida. Sunday morning " His New Creation " led a campus wide worship service to bring the weekend to a close. Also performing as a part of the weekend were Kevin and Nancy Murphy. 44 Student Life 46 Student Life Homecoming 77 at GSC began on Friday night, January 28, with a disco dance at Williams Center. Those who braved the cold winds Saturday morning to watch the homecoming parade were not disappointed as the various organizations on campus produced some interesting floats. Delta Zeta and Pi Kappa Phi won first place with their float " A Star is Born. " There were, in fact, many stars on hand for the festivities, including Mickey Mouse and Barbara and Kris. At the Eagle basketball game on Saturday afternoon Jonella Payne was crowned Homecoming Queen. Mimi Hazen, the 1976 Homecoming Queen, and President Pope Duncan crowned the Phi Mu representative during halftime activities. Student Life 47 48 Student Life Student Life 49 Black History Week — Speakers Highligh t Eight Days Of Ebon Identity " I would like to think that the movement of the 60 ' s, the work of Martin Luther King and other civil rights movements were responsible for opening many areas for blacks — such as fair housing law, public accommodation laws, and voting right laws. We have come a long way. " — Earnest Moore Administrative Aide to State Senator Sam Nunn " There are problems peculiar to minorities that need special attention. " — Jimmy Carter Director of Minority Student Affairs at the Medical College of Georgia 50: ; Student. Life " I have grown to understand that the function of the black artist is to assist in the psychic, political and economic liberation of African peoples, whether they be in the United States, the Caribbean, South America, or in the motherland, Africa. " — Vinie Burrows A New York poet who performed in " Walk Together Children ' ' There is " no way the black male or female can be free without the freedom of the whole race. We have been taught by our oppressors to hate each other. Blacks need to learn to love again. " — Dr. Nathan Hare Univ. of San Francisco Sociologist Psychologist " We must do more than just recognize ourselves as black. We must feel black and think black. We must be black. " — Dr. Nathan Hare Student U?e Puss 9 n Boots Once upon a time, in a fairytale, there was a poor boy named Jack whose only possession was a cat named Puss. Puss ' only possession was a pair of boots. These boots weren ' t magic, but they gave Puss plenty of confidence — enough to conquer an ogre, capture a castle, and help his master Jack marry the princess of his dreams. A happy ending always comes with a good fairytale. Alpha Psi Omega, a national dramatics honorary fraternity, performed " Puss ' n Boots " for the children of Bulloch County during spring quarter. 0% r 3fc 54 ' Student Lite January 18, 1977 For years GSC students have pleaded with the administration for an earlier, and extended, spring vacation. To lessen that putting the " brain to the grindstone " routine . . . to have two, two-and-a-half month quarters rather than one lasting five months . . . to be able to join their buddies in Fort Lauderdale for a week of fun and frolicking . . . Oh well . . . Someone heard those cries for release from a ho-hum existence. Release and relief fell from the sky in the form of little white flakes that showered the campus. Students ran in circles with their tongues hanging out, trying to catch some of those tasteless white buds. (No, it wasn ' t manna. It ' s called snow!) Ah, the snow was a welcome sight. No heat. No school. It turned brother against brother in the scramble for snowballs, icicles, and strategic pelting positions on key buildings. The dreary winter that had pushed everyone inside under bundly blankets was transformed into a white magnet that drew all the students together. The wished for vacation . . . better early than never. Student Lite SI Art League ' s 1977 Student Show Three " Best of Show " awards were presented at the GSC Art League ' s 1977 Student Show. The primary category winners were Katharine Durham for painting, Lupe Hutchinson for weaving and Michael Jones for sculpture. Joseph Perrin, selected juror and head of the Georgia State art department, noted that this year ' s entries compared favorably to those in a graduate level art showing that he judged last year. Perrin said that he was unable to select one piece as " best of show " because " you can ' t compare apples to pears. " His resulting rec- ommendation was that the award be shared between the three strongest areas. Winners in the other categories were Nancy Lowe (drawing), Carol Marsh (printmaking), Brent Russell (photography), and Mindy Mein- ders (ceramics). 58 Student Lite BETH OVERTON CROWNED MISS G.S.C. Twenty-three girls were entered in the 1 977 Miss GSC pageant, which has become a tradition at Georgia Southern. The theme of this year ' s pageant was " Dreams! " And a dream came true for Beth Overton that Saturday night when she was crowned as the title holder for 1 977. She was sponsored by Alpha Delta Pi sorority. To emcee the show, Dellis Heath, director of the event, chose Kerry Loudermild, and as a special attraction, Sandy Adamson, Miss Georgia, was hostess. Black Day At The Red Dog Saloon For the second consecutive year, the Masquers presented a dinner theatre. " Black Day at the Red Dog Saloon " was a " good-guy, bad-guy " oriented play, involving plantation owners, slaves, and, of course, a pretty damsel in distress. Darryl Rhoades and the Ha Ha Vishnu Orchestra blew into Statesboro and played before an overflow crowd at GSC ' s Williams Center. The madcap presentation of take-offs on contemporary tunes, " original " originals, and assorted choreography and gimmickry gave the audience an experience to be remembered. 64 Student Lite Student Life 65 G.S.C. Loses A Landmark. The old water tower, once located behind the administration build- ing, is now just a legend to those who climbed and autographed it. After a week of disassembling and removing the parts, the campus was left bare of one of its " landmarks. " Many expressed relief that the unused tower was finally removed, but others felt slightly sad. Whatever their reaction, the removal of the water tower did not go unnoticed by the students of Georgia Southern. 66 Student Life April In New York For the fifth year in a row, Georgia Southern sent student delegates to the Model UN convention in New York City During one week, over two hundred colleges ' and universities ' delegates gather for this program, designed to simulate the workings of the United Nations. This year, the fifteen GSC students attending had to learn the political, social, economic and foreign policies of their designated country — in this case Algeria They were also expected to participate in ten Model UN committees. The challenge of representing a particular country is tied to the depth of its involvement in world affairs. Algeria, an active member of the Arab League, is involved in Middle East politics as well as in the regional system of North Africa. 1 Student Lite 70 Student Life Th e Preserva tion Hall Band Brings New Orleans To Southern On the city map, Preservation Hall is at 726 St. Peter Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. But hearing them that night it made you teel that Mardi Gras belonged to Statesboro just as much. The jazz band musicians, all now in their 60 ' s, 70 ' s or 80 ' s have been playing their music for halt a century. They learned from masters like Buddy Bolden, King Oliver, Kid Ory and Jelly Roll Morton. Sometimes their jazz sound conjured up visions in black and white. You saw dusty rooms with glistening faces seen vaguely through the campfires of countless cigarettes. The shadows of lovely dark- haired ladies floated on the walls behind the drinking, card-playing listeners. But most of the time the sound was alive. Here. Now. And those who played it were as young as the music. Ageless. Preservation Hall — come back again. Bizarre Bazaar Reminiscent of a medieval traders ' market (where one man ' s trash could be another man ' s treasure) the Bizarre Bazaar, sponsored by WVGS, attracted students from on and off campus with the chance of selling unwanted books, albums, and clothes, rather than throwing them away. With awards offered for the most " bizarre " costume, many of the buyers and sellers appeared in the apparel of supermen and wizards — while others just came as themselves to watch, talk, and take part in the William Center picnic offered that afternoon. 72 Student Life 74 Student Life Student Life 75 76 Student Lite Almost Anything Goes The Residence Hall Association (RHA) sponsored the first Anything-Goes contest in May for the dorm residents at GSC. The students were divided into teams by residence halls. Since not all of the dorms participated, there were only six teams in all. These six stalwart groups of competitors clashed in such varied events as " The Great Canoe Switch, " " Tug-of- War, " " Special Obstacle Course, " and a wheel barrow race around Sweetheart Circle. Student Life 77 Hon ors Day Honors Day was a new experience for everyone this year. Instead of the traditional luncheon honoring just a few of the students, an early morning reception for every honored student and his or her parents was given in the gallery of the Rosenwald Building. The location of the convocation itself was also switched from unairconditioned McCroan Auditorium to sunny, breezy, Sweetheart circle. This year, for the first time, two students tied for the Alumni Association Scholarship Award: Linda Kay Canter (Education) and Harry Kirksey Hogan (Biology). This award is presented to the senior that has the highest scholastic average of those who have done all their college work at GSC. Dr. Perry Cochran of the history department was named as GSC Professor of the Year for 1 977. This is the third year in a row that a member of the history department has been so honored.

The team lost seven swimmers to graduation last year, and were faced with rebuuilding the program. Swimmers Andy Cowart and Mark Miller, and diver Jeff Barnett performed admirably. The women swimmers, coached by Debbie Dowdy, broke six school records, despite their 2-5 season. 90 Swimming bbreviates Season Disappointing Season Ft Polo Team Seniors Tom Pecht and Bruce Pawloski led this year ' s water polo team that started out strong, defeating Vanderbilt and Florida State, as they won their first four matches. But as the season progressed, the team slowed down considerably and wound up with a 5-4 record. Coach Buddy Floyd ' s squad placed 6th in the Yale Invitational, remaining one of the Southeastern powers in water polo.

The station, according to its supporters, provides an " alternative to the mindless mundane disco wasteland " when " the Statesboro Blues get to you. " Its format is diversified, including jazz, classical, and album-oriented rock. In addi- tion, the station offers the NBC Uni- versity Theatre — a series of dra- matic reproductions of great litera- ture. " You Bet Your Life, " starring Groucho Marx, is another favorite. As a form of public service, WVGS sponsors or co-sponsors a dance marathon for charity, CCC public forums and debates, a flea market, concerts, the Travelers Switch- board, and weekly interviews with members of the faculty, administra- tion, student body and guests of the college. Organizations 139 College Union Board The movies, this year, were the highlight ot the College Union Board ' s (CUB) program. There was a variety in its program ranging from musicals and drama, to American and foreign-made films. Concerts have always lost money for the CUB because it is impossible to please everyone on a campus as small as GSC ' s. A majority of the students would have to attend a concert to pay for it. Because of the positive response to weekend movies, the CUB increased the program to include free Wednesday movies. This move was also a success, offsetting much of the lack felt by a concert absence. Another 1977 introduction was the " Soliel " laser light show. Backed by electronic music, the program consisted of focused and diffused red, green and blue lasers that twirled, weaved, appeared and disappeared in fractions of a second. The laser lights were capable of forming images and even writing names. Smoke for ammonium chloride containers was captured by the rays of color and transformed into suspended swirling patterns. 140 Organizations Central Coordinating Committee The Central Coordinating Committee is more or less the Student ' s link to the administration.

This year they held a 3erman Roast, after dinner talds, an initiation banquet, a jinner in Savannah and a Fashing Festival, which is a 3erman mardi gras. r ashing — " the season of foolishness " — originated when he medieval Catholic Church decided that its followers ;ould not live a life of constant reverence. Instead, it was arranged that parties, celebrations, and parades would xeceed the holiest of religious holidays, which were also the quietest of times. [ " he first Fashing party is held on November 11 at 1 1 :00 p.m. eleven is considered the foolish number by the Germans) ind though it lasts just one night, it serves as a warm-up to he celebrations that will come after the New Year. Dn January 6, the religious season of Epiphany ends and the cities begin their Fasching celebrations that last until Ash Wednesday — 40 days before Easter. And, as the date gets closer and closer to Ash Wednesday, the parties and people get wilder. Finally, on Rose Monday, two days before the fun has to end, the celebrations come to a climax. All of the streets in the town are closed to traffic while floats, marching bands, fools, and clowns wind through the city under a rain of confetti. That night, everyone dons a Fasching costume and hurries off to his (or her) favorite bar or local party where dancing, dunking, and laughing continue until midnight Tuesday. But, with the strike of twelve comes Ash Wednesday and the Fasching spirit must die, for it begins the Lent season which lasts until Easter. During this time, t he Germans recuperate and acquire a more serious mood to contemplate Christ ' s suffering. American Chemical Society The purpose of the Georgia Southern Chemistry Club is to encourage study in the field of chemistry in today ' s technological world.

Edwards, a research professor of accounting at the University of Georgia, at the club ' s spring meeting. Edwards explained to the gathering that accountants today face the problem of too few professional guidelines, or principles. He also pointed out that the profession has been criticized, on a congressional level, " for not being independent because they are paid by the clients and respond to the clients ' needs, " and that accountants will have to learn " to walk on water to be independent. " Accounting, Edwards said, must be responsible to business first and other areas later. Also, one of the major objectives should be to detect financial trends.

" It ' s a pleasure to build them and a real thrill to fly them. " In 1 969, Wallace built a two-seater airplane in which he has traveled to Wisconsin, Florida, and parts of New England. He hopes to build a four-seater in the near future, which will take three or four years to complete. Recently Wallace built a gyrocopter, which resembles a mini-helicopter. This is a short-term project as it only requires about six months to construct one. " It ' s capable of flying 75 mph or so, bul I usually keep it down to 20 mph. I only use it to fly around Statesboro. When you get up there, you ' re virtually alone . . .it ' s a fantastic feeling. " Administration Faculty 257 258 Administration Faculty Mrs. Nancy Barrett of the foreign language department has been " crazy about the Greek myths ' ' ever since the days of her college English 251 course. Mrs. Barrett promised herself that she ' d visit all the places she ' d ever read about — hence her hobby is traveling. Not only has Mrs. Barrett seen Greece ' s Oracle at Delphi and Tomb of Agamemnon, but she ' s also covered most of Europe, South America, and Mexico in her travels. It was inevitable that as a teacher of Spanish she would travel extensively in Spain as well. When asked about her plans for the future she said, " I really want to investigate the Mayan Civilization in Yucatan " Mrs. Barrett cited her hobbies other than traveling as " collecting paraphernalia and good friends. " Administration Faculty 259 Dr. Frank Clark of the math department considers himself an eccentric when compared to the other faculty members, because of his running marathons. " Some people run for enjoyment; even if it were proven to be detrimental, I think I would still run, " he said. Although he has jogged two miles a day for years, Dr. Clark first became interested in covering long distances when Frank Shorter won the marathon in the 1972 Olympics. " I wanted to see if I could do the same thing — run in a mara- thon and finish. I gradually increased the distance I ran each day, planning to enter the Peach Bowl Marathon the Christ- mas after the Olympics. My time wasn ' t great, but I finished in just a little over three hours. " Dr. Clark has participated in the Peach Bowl Marathon four times and also in the Stone Mountain Marathon. " Running serves a need I have ... I run ten miles every morning on backroads . . . It ' s a victory over yourself when you finish — it ' s a great feeling! " Administration Faculty " My whole life is spent working with the environment and art. It ' s fun not just work, " said Mr. Bruno Bak of the art department. He believes that art should become inte- grated with man ' s environment. Bak emphasized that art is not only visual, but includes books, music, furniture and the buildings we live in. People are suffering from " visual illiteracy, " he said. The places that people live and work in are poorly constructed — function- ally and visually. " We are paying a penalty for this because abnormal surroundings and badly designed space are harmful to our nervous systems. " He is renowned for his many stained glass window designs. Bak ' s most famous, and the world ' s largest, stained glass window is St. John ' s Cathedral in Minnesota. He worked on this project with Breuer, the architect who also designed the UNESCO building in Paris and the Whitney Museum in New York City. Administration Faculty 261 Evening if the deligh t of virtuous age; it seems an emblem of the tranquil close of a busy life — serene, placid, and mild, with the impress of the great Creator stamped upon it. — Bulwer 263 A graceful and honorable old age is the childhood of immortality — Pindar The golden age is before us not behind us. — St. Simon Seasons Autumn to winter, winter into spring, Spring into summer, summer in to fall, — So rolls the changing year, and so we change; Motion so swift, we know not that we move. Dinah Mulock Craik — Immutable To walk along a country road and dream Of days long past when all my days were spring. My thoughts were full of plans, of hopes, of schemes; I ' d laugh; I ' d play; I ' d run; I ' d sing. But spring is gone and fall has come. My days In the sun have sprung away. But now I must Enjoy this time before I have to pay The price of peace at last to come to dust. My time is near. The shining, sparkling snow Is like a brilliant blanket covering all the world. These stars can even make my eyes all glow. The world is dressed in diamonds and all pearled. No longer can the earth tell me a lie; The time has come for me to leave and die. Sherri McLean 271 Another year has gone by at Georgia Southern and is now recorded between the pages of the 1977 REFLECTOR. As is customary for the editor, I would like to use this last page to thank those who were instrumental in helping to put this book together. The REFLECTOR would not be if not for pictures therefore I ' d like to especially thank Steve Elwood and Photographic Ser- vices for the time and effort they spent in the darkroom develop- ing pictures. I hope your eyes have recuperated! I ' d also like to thank Terry Leonard for his abundance of color slides from which we chose most of the color that appears in the opening section. To the others, Susan Ambrose, Eddie Donato, David Richardson, and Brent Russell, who also contributed both color and black and white pictures, many thanks. I would also like to give special recognition and thanks to Terri Webb for spending extra time on the faculty section and for her help this summer. And last, but not least, my heartfelt gratitude to my associate editor, Susan Ambrose, who slaved with me all summer writing copy to finish this book. Without her help it would never have been completed 4 hope you enjoy the memories of 1 976-77 Editor, REFLECTOR 1977 ...1mM_ mm -mm
