4113, chuckle, ."I study, I work, I study some more, and then I feed the chickens. Believe it or not, I do that to relax." But Ian's efforts are beginning to prove lucrative, winning the Dr. Ron Lebaron award, an annual 519100 scholarship given to the outstanding pre-dental student of the year, Ian was also nominated for the 1974 Bank of America Community College Awards. . At 21, Ian's spirit of determination has peaked. Hoping to attend USC Dental School, he believes that everything takes time, and he is not afraid to gamble. After all, he has a lot to gain.

By David Thatcher Illustrated by Robert Lachman "I plan to make Star reflect the best possible writing, reporting, and photography." The ambitious words above are worth more than just passing notice. They are the words of Gregory I. Wilcox, editor-in-chief of the Valley Star. Wilcox, formerly an Oklahoma University busi- ness-journalism major, is no stranger to the demands and pace of the newspaper world. While a university student, he worked part-time as a copy boy and handyman for the Oklahoma City Times. Interest and aptitude soon led him to accept full-time duties, and he left school.

Daily Oklahoman proved to him that he was in the right career. Does it seem odd that a former university scholar and full-time newspaperman is now the editor of a community college weekly? Not at all, if we consider Wilcox' interesting background and the turn of events that led him to Valley College. Leaving Oklahoma University to accept full-time employment left Wilcox, like so many young men of his time, liable to the draft. "On April 1, 1970, I was drafted," he explains, "and managed to spend my entire army duty as a Chaplain's assistant." At the time of his discharge, an army friend, Doug Monroe, was returning to his home in Granada Hills, only five miles from Valley College. It seems to the young, adventurous, and now free and unencumbered Wilcox that California might be worth a try. "We found an old Plymouth for about 51525, and it promptly burned up in New jersey." After a few equally discouraging misadventures, the pair finally arrived in California. Wilcox tried in a number of ways to fit into his new life. After an uneventful series of short-term jobs, he made the decision to use his army benefits and complete his education. Fate indeed works in strange ways, for it was at Valley College that he found his way to the editor's desk. As if being editor-in-chief isn't enough to keep most men busy, Wilcox manages to maintain a 21-unit scholastic schedule. If this isn't impressive enough, perhaps the 3.8 grade average and his membership in the honor society will be. In addition to his numerous responsibilities, the articulate, 27-year-old Aquarian finds time for recreation in skiing and tennis. After his graduation in june, Wilcox has plans to attend either Pepperdine, UCLA, or Cal State North- ridge to work further toward his communications degree. "I'll probably go to work for a large metro- politan paper," he said, "or I'd like to teach part time." And so it is that someday many people may read the words of Wilcox in their morning papers. The friend he came to California with? Well, fate seems to have led him to study optometry. Probablymaking glasses for people to better enjoy their morning paper. A typical day in the city room finds Wilcox covering a story by phone "Pica pole" in ' - . hand, he always must be feady with a . . , K . decision .

friendship with john johnson, former president of Student Nursing Association. His interest rapidly developing, he took the first steps necessary to enter the department. "The Nursing Department,'f he said, "functions almost like a separate college-they actually sent me a letter of rejection." This letter prompted Carlton to contact his friend, johnson, who was able to get him past the entrance obstacles. He maintains that his success and direc- tion, thus far, is attributable to johnson, now a director of nursing at a large convalescent hospital. Carlton will complete his studies at Valley College in june and plans to continue working toward his master's degree in hospital administration at the University of California at Sonoma. The tasks of hospital administration, and the rewards, most closely resemble the duties of his Army experience. He was a flight operations coordinator at Fort Rucker, CA. Webster tells us that a nurse is "one that looks after, fosters, or advises." He never led us to believe it should be a woman. Webster, also, would have liked Carlton. YQ X XXX XX X Among his diversified interests Carlton lists antique car restoration. His look of concern and care between the Hudsons becomes significant, considering his choice of careers. -.

By Carolyn Ristuccia Illustrated by Steve Fischer If the American Dental Association is right, then lan Hamel has a rough time ahead of him. In the United States for every five dental students who get into American schools, eight fully qualified candidates must go abroad to foreign institutions despite an appalling shortage of working physicians. Every year since 1963, of the 20,000 students applying to the 1,446 American dental schools only 7,000 are accepted. Some reapply, but most give up. Discouraging, perhaps, but to lan Hamel, a 3,9 organic chemistry student, the picture is not so bleak. HameI's decision to study dentistry did not materialize as a "spur-of-the-moment" revelation. "The thought of being a dentist always appealed to me because l like science and l love working with my hands . . . particularly if it involves detail." Carrying a 15-unit study load and working as a chemistry department lab assistant, the cliche of the chemistry student as a wild-eyed neurotic, a lekyl- Hyde type of character, conflicts terribly with lan's easy-going nature. Living on a ranch in Sylmar with his mother and a menagerie of horses, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, and geese, lan leads what might be termed the "comfortable existence." lan admits, however, that he spends the majority of his time studying. "lt's true," he says with a A leisurely stroll through the Valley College greenhouse finds Hamel checking the growth of one of his favorite plants.
