The week was an introduction to Greek Life for the Rushees. Open houses, teas, skits, and parties brought difficult decisions and anxious hours as Rushees awaited Bid Day, September 14. ' 7 Leave Here Tomorrow, Will You Still Remember Me? " LYNYRD SKYNYRD Georgia Southern rock fans turned out in record number on October 13 to hear the nations most popular proponent of " Southern Rock " . . . Lynyrd Skynyrd. Sponsored by the Student Union Board (SUB), the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert proved to be the most successful concert in Georgia Southern history, with ticket receipts totaling over $21,000.00. As over 4,500 fans screamed their approval, Lynyrd Skynyrd performed one high energy number after another. " Sweet Home Alabama " , an obvious crowd favorite, was followed by " Gimme 3 Steps " and " They Call Me The Breeze. " The band played " Crossroads " then ended their performance with their classical guitar ramp, " Freebird. " Tragedy struck the band only one week after their performance here. En route from Greenville, S.C. to a concert date at Louisiana State University, the twin engine plane in which they were traveling crashed, resulting in the death of the lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and background vocalist, Cassie Gaines. The Georgia Southern concert opened the band ' s four month tour, ironically named the Tour Of The Survivors, making Georgia Southern the last college to see Lynyrd Skynyrd perform. 22 Lynyrd Skynyrd 24 Doors Doors 25 Come To The Cabaret! Thursday evening, October 20, an estimated crowd of 800 people gathered in McCroan Auditorium to await the opening curtains of " Cabaret. " The Broadway musical, performed by members of On The Aisle, Inc., was the first in a series of Fall quarter productions by the Campus Life Enrichment Committee (CLEC). The musical comedy centered on the romance and disillusionment of two couples, one young and one old, in Berlin of 1929. As the rise of the Nazi Third Reich made Berlin an increasingly harsh and bitter place to live, the emcee at the cabaret reflected a very cynical humor laughing at the politics and social standards of the time.

Tractorcade Gains National Attention A massive rally and trac- torcade was held in Sta- tesboro in order to focus state and national attention on the plight of the farmer who was caught in a squeeze between falling commodity prices and rising production costs. The November 4, tractor- cade was the biggest demon- stration of farmer dissatisfac- tion ever in south Georgia, and the estimated ten mile line of farm machinery was meant to illustrate demands for higher product prices. On the courthouse square at 11:15 a.m. the first tractor of the day was cheered. For the next hour and 35 minutes, a crowd of approximately 6,000 watched as the tractors rolled by in single file, moving slowly up Main St. And the tractors kept coming. There were vintage tractors, large tractors, small tractors and farm machines which varied from a " Red Belly " Ford to a Red, White and Blue farm rig entitled Spirit of 76. The predominate vehicles in procession were the large farm rigs - the ones whose cost and operating expense was partially respon- sible for the farmer ' s money squeeze. i m m i || Hand-sketched signs were affixed to the tractors. These varied from a poke at President Carter - " If Jimmy keeps being a dilly, I ' m going to buy myself a case of Billy " - to a suggestion on foreign policy - " Feed America First, the World Next. " And, many signs hit at the farmer ' s chief complaint: " We Don ' t Want Charity, We want Parity. " Some warned " Starve the farmer, starve yourself. " And, one offered a prayer, " God help us, because Washington won ' t. " The tractorcade confined through downtown Statesbor- o, and turned right on U.S. Hwy 80 East. The exact number of farm vehicles involved in the mas- sive rally varied from one source to another. Two reli- able sources said they had counted tractors. One gave a figure of about 850 while the second said it was 950. City Councilman Lewis " Bo " Hook, chairman of the police committee, estimated over 2,000 farm vehicles paraded, while Larry Fields, president of the Georgia Young Farmers Association and a prime mover in the tractorcade, said the figure was over 3,000. 30 Around Campus Around Campus 31 Ghosts, Gob ins, and Ghoulies Prowl GSC ' s Campus 32 Halloween For the seventh consecutive year, Georgia Southern ' s Student Recrea- tion and Park Society sponsored the Haunted House for GSC students as well as community participants. Opening on October 27, the Haunted House provided one scare after another until its closing on Halloween night. Unseasonably cold weather and icy rains didn ' t dampen the " spirits " in the House, nor did they dampen the spirits of the hundreds of participants who entered the House for the scare of their lives, making this another successful year for the student entertainers. Of course, " Spook Night " would not be complete without the usual entourage of strangely clothed trick-or-treaters. On Monday night, October 31, approximately 100 little ghosts, goblins and ghoulies des- cended on Georgia Southern dor- mitories for the annual Afro-American Club Halloween Party. Co-sponsored by the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, disadvantaged children from the Statesboro area were treated to candy, punch, and games as fortune tellers, clowns, and witches wandered among them adding to their exci- tement. Halloween celebrations on cam- pus continued as dorm dwellers hosted Halloween parties and car- nivals, while others serenaded the campus with " pumpkin-carols " . Mickey Mouse, Charlie Chaplin, Batman and others made their appearances as various groups around the campus hosted masquer- ade parties to celebrate Halloween at GSC. Halloween 33 First Collegiate Production Of " The Removalist " The first collegiate production ever of the play " The Removalist " was performed November 16-19 by GSC ' s Masquers. According to Sugar Bear Bass, assis- tant director, the cast usually works harder on the fall show becaue of GSC ' s invol- vement in the American College Theatre Festival. Georgia Southern holds the record among small colleges and universities for being chosen to compete in the regional semifinals, a prelude to performance in the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Bob West, director of " The Removalist, " said that this was " one of the most powerful pieces of theatre I ' ve ever been involved with on this campus.

Raindrops 39 John Davidson Performed In Manner " I ' ve been in a lot of places all over the world, but nowhere is as exciting as spending a night in Statesboro, Georgia, " said John Davidson at the opening of his concert held in Hanner Fieldhouse November 11. This was the culmination of his stay on the GSC campus, during which he visited sorority lodges and Landrum Center. While at Landrum, Oliff Hall ' s director presented Davidson with a Detex to that dorm, " the key to more than 300 upperclass women. " His remark about seeing people lying on the floor outside of the Landrum cafeteria, dying with ptomaine poison, drew understanding laughter from the students. Davidson provided entertainment for the old and young alike with his singing. He sang a medley of fifties ' songs along with his version of the popular songs " Daybreak, " " I Like Dreaming, " " Evergreen, " " You and Me Ain ' t No Superstar, " " Cat ' s in the Cradle, " and his new hit " Everytime I Sing a Love Song. " A medley of popular commercial tunes was his closing performance. Prior to Davidson ' s appearance on stage, the Mac Frampton Triumvirate performed their arrangement of " Star Wars, " " MacArthur Park, " " Send in the Clowns, " and " I Write the Songs. " This concert was jointly sponsored by the GSC Foundation and the Student Union Board. John Davidson 41 GEORGIA SOUTHERN HOMECOMING 1978 Southern Reunion By 8:00 p.m. on Friday evening, January 27, the Hanner Fieldhouse was packed with a sellout crowd of over 5000. Fans rocked and rolled to the disco-jazz and Southern Rock as Atlanta Rhythm Section and Brick kicked off GSC ' s 1978 Homecoming festivities. Brick, highly acclaimed as a foremost up and coming disco ensemble, treated the crowd with favorites including " Dusic " and " Dazz. " Atlantic Rhythm Section rocked onto the GSC stage playing such hits as " My Back is up Against the Wall " , " Dog Days " , " So Into You " , and " Angel " . Numerous cuts from their new album were introduced. After their second encore, ARS succombed to the wishes of the Homecoming crowd, as they launched into their highly acclaimed favorite, " Doraville " . Saturday, January 28, was a day filled with many Homecoming activi- ties, beginning with the parade at 10:00 a.m. " A Southern Reunion " , this years Homecoming theme, was evident in the colorfully decorated floats and crazy cars. Clowns, animated characters, bands, and color guards contributed in making this one of the largest and most successful Georgia Southern Homecoming Par- ades in history. The festivities continued into the afternoon with the annual CCC Bicycle Race around Sweetheart Circle. Dan Evatt took first place in the event with Ron Frost and Chris Novak following close behind. By 3:00 p.m. the Fieldhouse was filled once again as fans watched the GSC Eagles fall prey to the Mercer Bears. Halftime activities highlighted the afternoon, however, as Debbie Harper was crowned Miss GSC Homecoming 1978. A Junior, Exceptional Childhood Education major, sponsored by Gamma Beta Phi, she was escorted by Tim Amidon. Other finalists in the Queens Court included Donna Bar- foot, Angel Bowen, Mitzi Neely, and Kim Patrick. Saturday evening found students dancing to the rock and roll sounds of the Chevelles, packing the Williams Center, as Saturdays Homecoming activities drew to a close. Alumni luncheons, receptions, and banquets filled Sunday afternoon. Special receptions in honor of GSC President-elect, Dr. Dale Lick, were among Sunday afternoon festivities, as GSC students, faculty and alumni enjoyed the closing activities of another Southern Reunion. " In those vernal seasons of the year, when the air is calm and pleasant, it were an injury and sullenness against nature not to go out, and see her riches and partake in her rejoicing. " —John Milton, 1644 . » 46 Campus Nature Campus Nature 47 Students, faculty and local citizens had the op- portunity to hear many speakers dealing with a variety of topics. Nikki Giovanni, poetess, spoke during Black History Week and is the author of, Black Feeling, Black Talk. James Dickey previewed his book, Deliverance. Trace Analysis was the topic of a talk by Dr. H. A. Flaschka of the Geor- gia Institute of Technology. Dr. Dale Lick spoke follow- ing his appointment as president. Regent Irwin Friedman made the address at the June graduation ceremony. Jessica Mitford was on tour promoting her latest book, A Fine Old Conflict. Speakers 49 CLEC Offered Program Variety The October 20, performance of Cabaret was the first of several fall quarter productions provided through the College Life Enrichment Commit- tee. CLEC, directed by Gordon Al- ston, was also responsible for the fall quarter productions of the Oberlin Woodwind Quintet on November 15 and the New York Pro Arte Orchestra performance on November 22, 1977. A unique presentation of mime and movement kicked off winter quarter productions on January 17, 1978. Renowned as foremost artists in the theater ' s silent world, Bert Houle and Sophie Wibaux blended outward expertise with inner feeling when they presented the artistic mime program. On January 26 CLEC hosted the Eastern Brass Quintet for both a concert and a free workshop for interested students. The Eastern Brass Quintet showed their musical virtuosity and polished showmanship in a program that included a treasury of music from Renaissance to con- temporary composed for two trum- pets, French horn, trombone and the tuba. The Edith Stephen Dance Com- pany dazzled GSC students on February 9 in McCroan auditorium. The dancers displayed emotion throught the use of spontaneous movements within a certain amount of guidelines. The Goldovsky Grand Opera Theater presented " La Boheme " on March 7 as one of the last programs to be presented by the College Life Enrichment Committee. Stallings Honored For 500th Victory Head baseball coach Jack Stallings won his 500th career victory in the first game of an April 29 double header against Mercer of Atlanta. The win was also his 100th at Georgia Southern. Coach Stall- ings was honored between the games of the double header by being presented a home plate mounted on a plaque, a baseball, and a cake. The GSC Eagles, Students, Faculty, and citizens of Statesboro further honored Stallings as May 10, 1978 was declared Jack Stallings Day. A ceremony proclaiming this honor included many gifts to Stallings as well as a plaque from the mayor of Statesboro. 52 Stallings Stallings 53 Miss G.S.C. 1978- Carta McMillan Another GSC tradition was fulfilled on Saturday evening, April 22 as twenty-one girls competed for the title of Miss GSC. Carla McMillan, a freshman from Millen, Ga, was crowned queen for 1978. Carla will represent Ga. Southern at the Miss Georgia pageant later in the year. Runner up was Nan Jones. Talent competition winner was Pat Kelly, and swim suit competition winner was Mary Franklin Cousins. Sponsored by Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority. 54 Miss GSC Miss GSC 55 " I ' D PICK MORE DAISIES " If I had my life to live over, I would relax more. I wouldn ' t take so many things so seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I have been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot-water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute. Not next time! I ' d start barefooted earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I wouldn ' t make such good grades unless I enjoyed working for them. I ' d go to more dances.

Zettler Honor ' s Day 61 My Three Angels The week of May 10-13 found the Williams Center with some unusual guests for dinner as the GSC Masquers presented their Spring Quarter dinner theater production of " My Three Angels " . This old Humphrey Bo gart film, written by Sam and Bella Spewack, casts three convict trustees as the angels in a comedy in which each character is a character indeed. The forgivable criminal backgrounds of the three " angels " suit them for their various roles. Clearly victims of the letter of the law, they are exonerated by serving its spirit in the play. 62 My Three Angels My Three Angels 63 I 1 Summer floats lazily on silver clouds watching little ones run barefoot, while " le sun proudly dances on ie water.

Kicking off the week-long activities was the crowning of Greek God and Goddess, Mike Ramsey, a Kappa Sigma pledge and Terry Morrissett, a Sigma Pi Little Sister. Trophies and plaques were awarded throughout the week to the winners of such events as bowling, swimming, tennis, beer chugging and Greek Sing. Highlighting the week was the announcement of Greek Woman of the Year, Sally Collins, representing Delta Zeta, and Greek Man of the Year, represented Delta Chi.

She is nationally known for her devoted work and efforts in the field of elementary educa- tion. In September of 1958 she joined the faculty of GSC after her service with Georgia State College for Women, where she was instrumental in develop- ing the student teaching program for elementary education. Dr. Mathews became a professor of education when she became a faculty member at GSC. John Lindsay, teacher education pro- gram assistant, said, " Through her ingenuity, this school has developed one of the better teaching and elementary education training systems in the state. " In September of 1977 Dr. Mathews became the assistant dean in charge of curricular develop- ment. One could almost classify Dr. Mathews as specialist in this area because of her practical experience. Throughout her career she has been active in developing teacher criteria with the State Department of Education, done evalua- tions of education systems with teacher ' s education in the South and given college ap- proval for meeting stan- dards. With all her outside service to the state and teaching for regular classes up until her retir- ement, Dr. Mathews has been a very busy woman. Her service to the educa- tion system has been most important to the learning of several gener- ations of school students.

The goal for the " A Day for South- ern Campaign " , on Sep- tember 15 was $50,000 but the campaign actually raised about $12,000 over the amount. About 100 campus and community volunteers set out in two- person teams in order to solicit as many firms as possible and raise money. In early November, the Foundation in cooper- ation with Wayne Murphy, owner of the local McDon- alds, held a " McDonalds Breakfast. " The proceeds of the breakfast were in excess of $700 and the project is planned for next year also. A John Davidson Con- cert, held on November 11, 1978 was cosponsored by the GSC Foundation and the Student Union Board. Although the con- cert was a great success according to audience reaction it resulted in a financial loss of $1,500. Another effort of the Foundation was the Savannah-Chatham County Phone-A-Thon which netted $1,911. The phone-a-thon was spon- sored on November 15-16 and volunteers called more than 2,000 people. Successful phone-a-thons were also held in Glenn County and the Metro Atlanta areas later in the year. The Philosophy of the Foundation was three- fold: 1) They updated and corrected over 400 names and addresses and ex- panded the alumni list. 2) The Foundation raised money to support scholar- ships and loans. 3) They developed an organized alumni chapter in Chath- am County. 133 GEORGE-ANNE Publication Changed Format For 1978 Georgia Southern ' s weekly news publication is the George- Anne, consisting of news, features, sports, and editorials.

U3 WESLEY FOUNDATION Fun And Fellowship Provide Common Bond An essential part of the fellowship shared by Wesley Foundation students is laughter and fun times. The fall retreat at Wesley Gardens in Savannah was the group ' s first feeling of togetherness as some found themselves face-to-face with whip-cream pie. The left-overs of the fall retreat provided a taco supper with food and fun for everyone. The highlight of Halloween night was a visit to Fonzie ' s Garage where people floated in from all over town in pigtails, bobby socks, greased hair, and T-shirts to dance to the music of the ' 50 ' s. A statewide retreat was held in Covington winter quarter with fifty to sixty GSC participants returning to tell the news of seeing snow! Visits to homes, adoption of a granparent, and the initiating of project love are some results of their outreach ministry. A drama group, two music groups, and small group Bible studies have developed as members find common interests among themselves. CIRCLE K CLUB High Standards Of Life Promoted The Circle K Club wishes to promote campus and community service projects with emphasis on the democratic way of life, spiritual values of life, better citizenship, and higher business and professional standards.

Sigma Phi Epsilon, founded November 1, 1901 at Richmond Virginia, is the second largest college social fraternity in the world. Chartered at GSC in February 1969, Sig Ep is a group of men dedicated to the principle of virture, diligence, and brotherly love. Sig Ep was involved in a variety of social, academic, athletic, and community ac- tivities. 170 Sigma Phi Epsilon SIGMA PI Brothers Celebrated 10th Anniversary Sigma Pi packed each quarter with social activities and service projects during the 77-78 year. In the fall, they had 28 pledges, which almost doubled their brotherhood. At one time, their football team boasted a 5-1 record, but that fell at the end to 5-5. Teamed with Zeta Tau Alpha, Sigma Pi had a prizewinning float in the Homecoming Parade. In sports, their basketball team had a 6-6 record while the bowling team placed in the fraternity top five. As is custom, Sigma Pi also participated in the annual Miller Pick Up contest. During spring quarter, the brothers joined in the IFC retreat held at Hilton Head Island. In April, they celebrated their tenth anniversary on Founder ' s Day with a formal dance and dinner. Later they hosted their parents on Parents ' Day weekend with hotdogs, hamburgers, singing, and horseshoes. A highlight of spring quarter was the brothers ' helping a local girl, Wendy, in her fight against cerebral palsy, by giving her weekly therapy. Founded in 1897 at Vin- cennes University, Vincennes, Indiana, Sigma Pi is present on a number of east coast colleges and universities. On April 20, 1968, the Kappa Delta Chi organization became the Gamma Tau chapter of Sigma Pi Fraterni- ty on GSC ' s campus. A major function of the fraternity is the pursuit of high grades.

The founders desired to establish a fraternity that considered personal worth and character of the individual rather than the wealth he possesses, the honors or titles he could display, or the rank he maintained on the social ladder. Today TKE follows this same motto: Not for wealth, rank, or honor . . . but for personal worth and character. The local TKE chapter, Lambda Upsilon, has about 35 active members. Scholastically, they range between first and fifth among the 13 fraternities at GSC. As a rule, three big parties are scheduled per quarter. The highlights of the year were the annual Spring Founder ' s Day Dance and Banquet and their trips to Georgia Tech ' s Beta Pi Chapter for Spring Fest. In ' 78, the Lambda Upsilon chapter won the softball trophy. TKE helped with the Gizz Kids ' fund drive for the handicapped citizens of Bulloch County. They also helped with the Bulloch County Association of Retarded Citizen ' s Bike-a-thon. Nationally, TKE chapters raised money for St. Jude Children ' s Research Hospital. The Lambda Upsilon chapter raised over $150 with a poster auction jointly held with Oasis Records. Dartmouth Victory Highlights Season It was a frustrating year for the GSC Water-Polo Team. Their 5-6 record made 77- ' 78 the first losing season in the five year history of the squad. The team performed well during the beginning of the season, winning two of three matches at the Washington and Lee Tournament, with Bruce Pawloski scoring 20 goals. In the Yale Invitational, the Eagles lost a tough opener to host, Yale, then ripped Dartmouth, 21-8, in their next match. They were soundly beaten by the University of Massachusetts in the next round and finished the tournament with a 6th place showing. The Eagles ended the season with two away losses to Florida St., a team they con- vincingly defeated at Hanner Pool.

In an effort to improve their times during this final tournament, all team members shaved their arms and legs, and two went as far as to shave their heads. Record-setting perfor- mances were turned in by Les McGovern in the 200 and 500 yard freestyles, by Bruce Dun- bar in the 200 yard breast- stroke, and by Mark Miller in the 100 yard backstroke.

Kitty Howard reached the consolation finals in the 50 yard backstroke, placing 14th. In addition, the lady swimmers placed three doubles teams in the finals: the 200 yard relay team consisting of Kitty Howard, Susie Jones, Laura Jacque, and Cindy Osmer fin- ished 6th; the 200 yard freestyle relay team, Jacques, Jones, Osmer, and Donna Hedrick finished seventh; and the 400 yard relay team composed of Jones, Howard, Hedrick, and Osmer placed ninth. All this prompted Edmonson to say, " All of our girls did drop their times considerably, so we feel that we finished the season on a good note. " 182 Women ' s Swimming The 1978 gymnastics team wasn ' t actually a team, since there were fewer participants. It allowed for individual approach in meets with other teams. Bill McBroom made the NCAA finals in Eugene, Oregon after qualifying in Penn State and placed at 9.45 in the pommel horse competition. Teammate Bob Stanley placed 8th in the competition. Gymnastics 185 Lady Eagles Post 12-14 Season A lot was expected of this year ' s ladies ' basketball team since all five starters from last year ' s winning team and six talented new faces were added to the team, but only a disap- pointing 12-14 record was produced. The ladies played over .500 ball during the start of the season until the last half when they managed only four wins out of 13 games. The loss of Pam Baker due to an injury during that final stretch dealt a fatal blow to the aspirations of the team. Baker did return, however, for the final tournament, the GIAW, in which the Eagles upset Georgia State in the initial round and later became third place finishers. Baker ended her career owning 14 of 18 individual single game, season, and career records. l-r: Head Coach Linda Crowder, Manager Janet Milton, Mary Lou Garrett, Pat Wheek .

CLAW THE Women ' s Basketball 187 " PAM IS THE BEST WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL PLAYER TO EVER COME OUT OF GEORGIA SOUTHERN. " —COACH LINDA CROWDER Women ' s Basketball 189 Many thought this would be the year for the 77- ' 78 basket- ball Eagles since all five starters returned from last year ' s suc- cessful team, but such was not the case. The club ' s 11-16 record was an exact reversal from last year ' s. J. B. Scearce, former coach at GSC from 1947-1967 re- turned to head the team after Larry Chapman left to become head coach at Auburn Universi- ty at Montgomery. Early in the season, the Eagles displayed good aggres- sive ballplay and looked as if they were going somewhere, especially after the 1 12-104 win over Old Dominion that raised their record to 7-4. But soon afterwards came a seven game losing streak and after being broken, the team managed only four wins out of its last nine games. Most Valuable Player Kevin Anderson again displayed all- around talent as did teammate Matt Simpkins. Bobby Shields, the only senior on the team, performed steadily after being injected into the starting lineup. Front Row, J. B.

They did it after surprising Georgia Tech in the first round and then by defeating Armstrong State in consecutive rounds for the championship. Coach Bill Speith ' s team finished the year with a 14-11 record after their travel to Tallahassee for regional play. Patt y Brown provided steady pitching and Kathy Stewart did a lot of hitting to pace the Eagles during their initial championship year. Women ' s Softball 197 198 Baseball Nobody really knew what the ' 78 baseball Eagles would be like. Everybody was aware that Southern baseball is some of the finest found anywhere and that the Southern Team is perennially ranked in the NCAA top 20. They did it again this year with a 35-15 record and a 17th spot in the final NCAA poll. It was a good year — Mixon batted over .400, Givens won 12 and lost 2, Aguayo was named first team All-Regional as a dh, Childress had a 20 game hitting streak, and Jack Stallings won his 500th. The Eagles started strong against first rate competition, beating Clemson 3-1 and 4-2. They split with Jacksonville and took two of three from Stetson. They took three from Mars Hill, won an amazing 26-1 rout. Then they lost two to Valdosta, split with South Carolina and FSU ran away from Georgia, and lost two at home to Miami. Had they won just one, against Miami, a play-off spot was certain. And that was the season. Although rumors and hopes of a play-off bid lingered shortly after regular season play, the bid never came and all that was left was the promises of a better record next year.

Men ' s Tennis Team Wins With Hustle Despite losing the top four players from last year ' s team, the ' 77-78 men ' s tennis team enjoyed a surprisingly successful year. The team amassed 19 wins against only six setbacks, a record nearly identical to last year ' s talented squad. What the team lacked in talent, they compensated for with hustle. It sounds cliche, but it ' s fact. Senior Doug Hull, sophomore Greg Whea- ton, and freshman Steve Morris shared the number one position for most of the season, and each had their surprise wins. But the surprise of the tennis year was David Ewing, a junior from Atlanta. After serving as an alternate player for the past two seasons, the sudden departure of expected returns thrust Ewing into a position he competently filled. He finished the year with the best singles record, 16-7. Disappointment got its chance as the Eagles failed to make an impressive showing at the state championships held at the University of Georgia. No player made it past the second round. Even the doubles tandem of Wheaton-Morriss that took a 20-1 record into the tour- nament was knocked out in the third round. spectators ' heads swing dumbly like clappers on bells; is it only the ball that moves them so? Men ' s Tennis 205 Dr. George Shriver ' s ladies tennis team finished its 78 season with a 14-1 1 record after finishing second in the GAIAW state tournament. Lucy Mulher- in and Kim Mosely provided steady play, as did the remainder of the team. At the outset of the season, Shriver was confident that it would be a good and exciting year. It was. Although there were periods of extreme fluctuation in overall team play, freshman Lucy Mulherin maintained steady play at the number one singles position.

They did it after a spectacular year, finishing third in the Southern Championships and seventh in a prestigious Chris Schenckel Invitational field. Consistency was the hall- mark of Coach Buddy Alex- ander ' s ' 78 golf team. In seven Spring tournaments, GSC failed only once to finish in the top five. Ironically the Eagles finished seventh in their home tourney, the Chris Schenckel Invitational, their poorest showing of the sea- son. They finished the season ranked 12th nationally. Golf 209 Sports Summary 1978 was a good year for sports at Georgia Southern. The baseball team continued its perennial outstanding play. Coach Stallings won his 500th game, and the team batted over .300. A catcher by the name of Carmelo Arguayowas found. Mixen batted over .400. The men ' s tennis team was expected to be weak after the loss of five top players. The surprise play of David Ewing and strong team consis- tency as a whole produced a fine 19-6 record for the year. George Shriver did an equally superb job with his women netters, as they placed second in the GIAW. With success, there was some disappointment for both the men ' s and women ' s basketball teams. Coach J. B. Scearce returned to head the men ' s team after previously coaching GSC to international recognition during the early 60 ' s. But this time, the tide turned as his team was not in the top contention in the league. Coach Linda Crowder ' s women ' s basketball team also was not on top. But since part of the season was played without Pam Baker, who holds nearly all individual records of women ' s basketball, it can be under- stood (partially) why they finished a nod under .500. They will be back to be on top next year. Water sports are a different kind of Southern attraction. The water polo team continued its rank as a Southeas- tern powerhouse, and the swimming team held its own against tough competition. The women swimmers worked hard and have promise of a stronger team next year. A pleasant surprise was the women ' s softball team. In only its first year of intercollegiate competion, the state championship was won under the direction of Bill Spieth. Buddy Alexander ' s golf team landed another trip to the NCAA Championships after finishing seventh in the Chris Shenkel Invitatio nal and placing third in the Southern Cham- pionships.

Sports Summary 211 Basketball was a popular and major sport in intramurals with 52 teams participating to win the championship. Nobody really expected the Brew Crew, Boonesfarm, or Seagram ' s Seven to win the men ' s Intramural Basketball tournament. It ' s fairly obvious that they all were interested in having a good time, which is what it is all about. Some serious teams, however, did display talent during the season. Teams like the Stooges, Kappa Sigmas, Sigma Phi ' s, AWB, and Afros, advanced to post-season play. The Stooges defeated the Rip Joints to win the crown, won the last four years by the Afros. Intramurals Basketball 215 Athletes On The Move Athletes on the Move 217 Intramural Sports Summary Intramurals offered the chance to compete in canoe- ing, bicycling, cross-country, racquetball in addition to the traditional sports as basket- ball, flag football, and softball. In basketball a dynasty of sports was ended as the Afro American Club Team fell during the quarter finals of the tournament. The largest number of participants turned out for springtime softball. A record of 59 teams vied for the top award. For the first time in our college history powder puff football appeared. Everyone soon learned that the girls can be just as tough as the guys, at least against themselves.

It reads: Hello Sun! You came up! We knew you would! You always do! Hooray for you! Right: Dr. Zach Henderson, President Emeritus. Far Right: Dr. Nicholas Quick, Acting President and Vice President LICK ELECTED GSC PRESIDENT Dr. Dale Lick was elected as the thirteenth President of Georgia South- ern College. He comes to G.S.C. from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, where he was Dean of the School of Sciences and Health Profes- sions. A native of Marlette, Michigan, Lick has served at Old Dominion since 1974. Lick received his B.S. and M.S. Degrees in Mathematics from Michigan State University and his Ph.D. in Math from the University of California. Lick ' s acceptance as President ends a six-month search for a succes- sor to former President Dr. Pope A. Duncan. Over 230 names for the president ' s position were screened by The Pre- sidental Search Committee at G.S.C. By October of 1977 the list had been cut down to 130. Following the screening the list was reduced to 20-30, where specific qualifications of each individual were then checked up on. The committee began their search from three different angles. Some candidates responded to an ad in THE CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION; others came from invitations to the faculty and staff at GSC; and, letters were written to presidents who in turn nominated additional candidates. Finally the candidates were nar- rowed to three names, who were submitted to Chancellor George Simpson in December of 1977. Simp- son chose Lick as the final selection. Dr. Nicholas Quick, the Acting president, will step down from office when Lick takes over. Dr. Quick will have a role in the vice-presidential search committee. Quick plans to return to the classroom. 224 GSC President AUXILIARY SERVICES Mr. Benjamin S. Dixon Mr. C. R.

Two of the better known programs are the Counseling Center and the tutorial sessions; other programs include housing programs, workshops for hall direc- tors and R.A. ' s, and the Student Union Board. The Student Counseling Center offers services to students who desire and need ass istance with educational and personal problems. It is located on the ground floor of Williams Student Center. Five counselors make up the department with Mr. Ford Bailey as director. The center provides academic advisement and tests that help educational and career planning. These facilities are offered to all students free of charge. The information revealed during counsel- ing sessions is kept confidential between the student and his coun- selor. Tutorial programs are also an important part of Student Personnel Services. Tutoring is exclusively for core-curriculum subjects. Those offering tutoring are biology, chemistry, geology, physics, math, English, and foreign languages. Although history tutorial is not offered, if requested by the students, one will be provided. Graduate and undergraduate students are selected by the depart- ments to direct the tutoring. The teaching students are paid by the housing department. " Originally tutoring was offered just in the residence halls, " said Dr. Lewis Raulerson, head of the tutoring program. " Now, it is offered to all students who need help in these particular areas, free of charge. " Dr. Ben G.

" The relatively unknown division does this through television, radio, and newspapers. Of the four departments comprising the Institutional Development, the Public Rela- tions is the largest and consists of a director, a sports information director, and a director of photography. The other areas are an Office of Publications, an Office of Resource Develop- ment, and an Office of Alumni Development. Twenty-five student assistants augment the eleven full-time employees working in the division. Off campus the division and its work is well known. However, because Mandes favors a subtle approach, the G.S.C. students are basically unaware of the division ' s existence and its importance.

According to Dean Averitt, it is the only non-university school in the state that is a member of the Council. " All of our programs are approved by the National Council for Teachers of Education, " he commented. The Rotary Foundation Fellow- ship is a related program of the Graduate School that takes place on campus each summer. Graduate students from 25 to 30 countries attend classes at Southern for ten weeks, said Averitt. An active member of the Rotary, Averitt said that the foreign students are taught English as their second language. This stems from the goal of the Rotary Foundation to promote understanding and friend- ly relations among people of different nations. Grammar, read- ing, writing, listening comprehen- sion, and oral expression are included in the formal training of English. Complementing the daily for- mal classroom instruction are individ ual tutorials, observation in classes of students ' majors, infor- mal discussion groups, and the forum. The recipients of the Rotary Foundation Fellowship are eligible to study in colleges and universities of this country, added Dean Averitt. Left: Dr. Jack N.

Jones. Over Christmas Dr. Rochelle A. Marrinian took some of the Anthropology students on an archaeological dig. Another project is one of the speech department, who produces a T.V. show every week. The biology department allows students to help them in actual research. Students do this strictly on a volunteer basis, receiving no credit or pay. The teachers make a list of areas they are researching and ask for a certain number of volunteers. " One teacher " , said Jones, " locked some students in jail over the weekend. " Some were the guards and others being the prisoners. This was done in the Criminal Justice Dept. in place of a term paper. " Many field trips accom- pany the usual classroom studies, " commented Jones. A Language professor took some of his students to Germany this past summer. Recently a professor in the Physics Department built a solar house using techniques he had developed.

Dr. Jordan was so honored in 1976-77 and in 1977-78 the Professor of the Year went to Dr. Cochran. Dr. James D. Jordan, Head and Professor ECONOMICS The Home Economics majors have focused on some specific issues throughout the academic year. They explored both traditional and emerging careers for women and men entering professional roles. Concentration was devoted to developing leadership skills, individual Self-awareness and improving communication with others. The Home Economics Division enhanced the individual ' s physiological and mental health through studies of nutrition, family and child development, and related social sciences. Becoming competent in understanding complex social issues was another area in which the majors tried to develop knowledge. The Home Economics Division contribut- ed to the welfare of the greater community by assisting in Fun Fairs for young children, visitations to the Retardation center and Homes for the Elderly. Through visiting museums, cultural centers, and show homes, the Home Economics majors tried to acquire aesthetic sensitivity. They also gained appreciation for the consumer role and responsibilities within the free-enterprise market place. Other highlights of the year included: cable T.V. presentations, a parenting seminar, and off campus trips. A European Field Study Course was offered in Fashion. Achievements of individual Home Econ- omics Majors were: selection to Who ' s Who, recognition for high Scholastic achievement, and substantial individual growth.

Rogers of the Physics Depart- ment since he moved to Statesboro. After noticing some bees around his wisteria bush, Rogers took an interest in the bees and decided to box them. " Unfortunately, the bees died during the first winter " , he said. " Keeping the bees alive was a challenge, " said Rogers, determined to be successful. Purchasing more bees through the mail, he has built up thirty colonies today. Some friends in Claxton, who raise and sell queens and bees, have been of instrumen- tal help to Rogers and encour- aged his interest in bee farming. To help pay some of the expenses of his hobby, Rogers sells the bees ' honey. Some of the honey is sold in local stores, but most is sold wholesale to brokers in Flor- ida.

Scott ft WEST INVENTS GRADUATION For those of you who are tired of foozeball and pool, the game " Graduation " may soon provide a pleasant change. After two years of planning, Dr. Robert West, professor of theatre and speech at GSC, invented the " Graduation " game in May 1977 and completed the final work on it in July. " Graduation " is designed much like " Monopoly " ; it is a game of skill and chance. Up to four players enter the game as Freshmen in College and proceed around the game board until their final quarter in college is completed and they are eligible for graduation. Fees must be played and rewards are collected in this game, but the incidents in " Graduation " pertain specifically to the life of the college student. " Graduation is not exactly a cut throat game, " said West. " It will induce younger kids to actual finance and show the responsibili ties involved in obtaining a higher education. " West is trying to sell his game to Parker Brothers Co. as a rival to " Monopoly " . A Patent is pending on " Graduation, " and West has already established a copyright. " Hopefully, " he added, " it will be out by 1979. " DEPARTMENT OF SPEECH AND DRAMA Dr. Harold L. Drake Mrs. Dorothy F. Lee Ms. Mary Mikell Mr. Robert W. West Dr. Clarence W.

Dr. Origen J. James, Dean of the School of Busi- ness, views this achievement as a " hallmark " in GSC ' s history because it places the college as one of only 172 undergraduate business pro- grams that are accredited throughout the nation. The School is designated as the regional center for servicing small businesses in the coastal area and provides them with technical assistance and guidance. By July 1, 1978, there will be a local staff on campus that is associated with the agricultural cooperative extension service under the University of Georgia. Dean James also pointed out that the School of Business has the highest enrollment of any program on campus next to the School of Arts and Sciences.

Long OLD HOUSE RENOVATED BY DR. NETTLETON " The house is a fairly typical example of turn-of-the-century American Victorian architecture " stated Dr. Douglas Nettleton of the Economics Department, speaking of his home in Statesboro. The seventy-five year old house was built by Jeff Williams, grandfather of the President of Sea Island Bank in Statesboro. Dr. Nettleton renovated most of the second floor. The upstairs had been untouched since the house was built. Nettleton put up sheet rock walls and painted them, choosing the colors himself. Some of the unnecessary petitions were torn out and Nettleton replaced some of the columns. Fifteen rooms including three parlors and a large entry room make up the old home. One of the parlors and the bedroom over it are in the shape of an octagon. Throughout the house are antiques that Nettleton has refinished. For the windows he made woven wood shades. A collection of oil paintings have been distributed through the huge house. Verandas run around three sides of the house, with an eight-sided tower attached to one corner. The huge Victorian home is located on the corner of Savannah and College avenues in Statesboro, Georgia.

White SCHOOL OF EDUCATION Cates Headquartered At GSC CATES, the Coastal Area Teacher Education Service, is a program associated with the School of Education. Dean Starr Miller said that out of a total of twenty-one school systems, G.S.C. is the head- quarters for CATES. The purpose of CATES is to provide staff development programs, both credit and non-credit for school person- nel. Students are eligible to apply for CATES after admis- sion to a college or university. Through the College, students may take CATES for personal professional devel- opment, tenure and incre- ment credit, teacher certif- ication or for degree credit. According to Miller, G.S.C. has been notified that its program for the preparation of school personnel has been reapproved. The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education through the Eds. degree is responsible for this reaccreditation. Pro- grams are revisited and reap- proved at regular intervals, said Miller. GSC, one of only four institutions in Georgia nationally accredited through the eds. degree, gives a professional stamp of ap- proval to the School of Educa- tion.

Stewart DEPARTMENT OF SECONDARY EDUCATION Students in Secondary Education had a variety of experiences teaching at Marvin Pittman School, this year. They designed and taught units to small groups of students at the Lab. school. These experiences were to help prepare them for success- ful student-teaching. Many courses in Secondary Education for graduate students were taught off campus at loca- tions such as Brunswick, Hines- ville, Fort Gordon, and others through the CATES program. This practice allowed many teachers to take these courses who would otherwise find it difficult if not impossible to continue their professional development while teaching. This year the Secondary Education Department sponsored a District Social Science fair at GSC. Not Pictured: Mrs. Gail S. Sisson, Mrs. Nancy K. Brinson, Dr. Owen F. Gaede, Dr. George W.

School. Some work as teacher ' s aids and others as office workers. Mostly the Education Dept. works with Marvin Pittman, but other depart- ments are also associated. Prior to student teaching, Marvin Pittman offers the Secondary Block-461, where students teach in the lab school under close supervision. The K-12 block is also offered. Physical Education, Art, and Music students that are Education majors work along with Marvin Pittman teachers. The lab school has also served as a research project for Psychology majors. Journalism majors interview and write stories on the students and teachers of Marvin Pittman. Elementary majors spend part of a quarter in Elementary Participation. Under the guidance of Graduate Program internships are also carried out in the lab school. Parents are aware that the students enrolled at M.P. are there for G.S.C. students. Georgia Southern students participate with lab school students, observe and do research on them. " According to my records, " said Dr. Ellis Wiley, Principal of Marvin Pittman, " we have as many college students within a year as our enrolled students. " We are here for G.S.C. students, " he added. DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL STUDIES The Special Studies Department, now in its fourth year, offers non-credit courses in English, math, and reading. For a student to be required to the Special Studies Program, he must have an SAT score of 650 or less, or a PAFG (Predicted Average Freshman Grade) below 1.6. Also any other student who wishes may enroll in the courses. The classes do not go toward graduation requir- ements, but Institutional credit is given. Not Pictured: Ms. Barbara W.

The 1977 Fall registration was the largest in the 71 year history of GSC. A total enrollment of 6,484 students surpassed the 1975 record enrollment by 2f " We are extremely pleased with the enrollment, " said Don Coleman, associate director of admissions. " We have had indications all along that we may have a large enrollment but it is great to know that we do indeed have a record enrollment for the fall. " Record enrollment figures explain the congested parking lots and longer cafeteria lines as GSC continues its expansion.
