Granted, not too many people knew about us, but that has all changed. As enrollment figures climbed and dorms filled to capacity, we stepped into the position of the fastest growing four- year university in the state. But we had much more than numbers. We had individuals who showed hope in the future by seeking knowledge and edu- cators that took pride in teaching. We were visited by various personali- ties including a former president and a well-known actor and enjoyed entertain- ment from the Broadway cast of 'Music Man" and our annual Boare's Heade Feaste. People noticed. Our fame grew. There was no denying, the news was spreading! Ending good entertainment is never a problem on campus. From shows at the Playhouse to dramas presented by the Al- pha Psi Omega fraternity there were always theatrical amuse- ments. River City Player Chaz Durham thrilled audiences with spectacular dance routines. iPhoto - Todd Johnsonj Division Page 2 'iw s ' 'si K, 14 1 1 v 115 Qi, ya? , W wg 3 .. 6 -., .. r t , .

We even studied. We had chit-chats in the cafeteria, we scoped things out along the breezeway and had many a late-night gathering in the dorms. We flocked to Lake 'Ienkiller and the Il- linois River for fun in the sun and built snowmen during Januaryls winter blast, recorded as the state's largest snowfall since 1927. From the first day jitters to our final good-byes we did our best to squeeze as many hours as possible of study and fun into everyday. Yes, it was true, with campus life there was always more than met the eye! ir "W Division Page J 8 X.

In Hawaii they say "aloha", in the Deep South they greet with "hi y'all", but on campus a simple "howdy" says a lot. During the first week of school the Fiedmen said it in many ways.- Aher completing the first day of classes, students, faculty and administration gathered to share in a com- mon interest, eating watermelon. The watermelon feed, held on the grounds of the Fitness Center, kicked off an evening of festivity. While waiting for the show to be- gin, an eager audience of students and faculty talked about old times, summer experiences and made new friends while enjoying the ice cold watermelon. As the sun set the grounds became a showplace. Campus organizations showed new arrivals that going to college isn't all work. School organizations present- ed skits in an effort to enlighten and interest new stu- dents in their cause and to help students make the transition to college an easier step. The cheerleaders, the Majestics and the band also participated, helping to make the show a success. The activities had their desired effect. As Muskogee freshman Ann Clouse said, "lt was a lot of fun. It's going to be a great year." Thunder, lightning and high humidity highlighted the next day's events. A forecast calling for light rain turned into a thunderstorm as the "Howdy Dance" got under way. Hundreds of people gathered in the ballroom, shoulder to shoulder, dancing the newest steps to the latest songs. Onlookers observed darkness laced with fluorescent lights, people as far as the eye could see, and sounds of laughter, song and rain flooding the ballroom. "lt was the biggest 'Howdy Dance' turnout in the his- tory of the school," Northeastern Activities Board presi- dent Billy Beets said. "There were easily 3,000 people in attendance. We were really pleased. Thanks to the Greeks and other campus organizations this will be a week to remember." Many students were surprised, to say the least, by the inaugural games. Never in their wildest dreams did they expect any serious competition from the faculty. However, after listening to some pretty bold claims by students, the faculty went to the athletic field and "edu- cated" students in the areas of volleyball tfaculty 2 - students ii and basketball tfaculty 65 - students 631. Due to unforeseen problems tno ropei, the tug-of-war competition was cancelled. This, however, increased the importance of the softball game. Going into that event tworth 10 pointsi, the students were down 6-0 and needed a strong performance to win the game and take the overall competition. That's exactly what happened. By shutting out the faculty 3-0 the students earned their 10 points and came from behind to capture the inau- gural games. The fun and excitement ofthe week played a big part in making new students feel more a part of the cam- pus. Connors transfer student Danny Parson said, "lt's different at a bigger college. lt's really an experience here and much different from what I was accustomed to." As the week came to an end, students and faculty were exhausted from the busy days and fun-filled nights. Everyone was certain the red carpet had been rolled out and we had been welcomed to campus in the tra- dition of true Fiedmen style.

The plastic cone atop the 100-year-old struc- ture was replaced, along with the rotted wood beneath the cone. The 310,000 renovation project took place between the summer and tall terms because of possible dangers with the l00-foot scaffolding used to complete the tower. Workers finished one day early and under budget, ac- cording to Bob Patrick, Ir., physical plant director. "We are very proud ol the way the clock tower turned out, The copper gleam changes from minute to minute, depending on the time of day," Patrick said. "I thought touching up the clock tower was an excellent idea. The new copper cone added a great deal to the overall appearance oi the building and to the entire campus as well," said Tom Cottrill, division chairman of Arts and Letters who oc- cupies office space in the stately old building. The first building on cam- pus, Seminary Hall opened in 1887 as a school and living quarters for Cherokee wom- en. The tower served as our symbol of recognition on many campus brochures as well as billboards throughout Green Country, it also provid- ed a melody on the hour from the topmost point of campus. T .vovfiw J Dedication Students and townspeople gathered in the spirit of pride and appreciation. The chili dogs were hot and so was the spirit as Tahlequah and Northeastern enthusiastically celebrated the fourth annual Pride and Appreciation Day. Hundreds of students, faculty, staff and local folk turned out for the annual event. Festive flavors of green and white prevailed on a beautiful, late summer after- noon. Balloons and streamers swayed in the breeze and signs proclaimed "NSU Pride", "You are in Redmen Country", and "The Redmen Romp". The marching band played the Redman fight song which echoed off building walls, signaling the approach- ing parade and filling children's eyes with a look usually reserved for Santa Claus. A "noise" contest followed with the loudest organization winning a free float trip. Drawings for shopping sprees at local merchants were also held. Participation of area businesses helped make the annual event a special occasion. "I think it's neat the town and college got together and did this," said student Jack Reavis, Tahlequah resi- dent. "I noticed many natives came out and along with the students and the many organizations and business- es who donated everything from hot-dogs to paper plates, made the day a big success." Participants then gathered for chili dogs, ice cream and drinks in the town square. Everyone was treated to the music of Joe Davis and the Northeastern Jazz Ensemble. Standing among the crowd holding a plate- ful of gigantic "dogs", student Dana Clark said, "lt's like standing on a street corner in New York City, only better." Clark took a bite and continued, "Now I really feel like I'm there. I think l'm going to catch a Woody Allen flick and eat the rest of these hot-dogs!" No, it's not New York. It's better. The Majestics, the cheerleaders and the band kept the action going with a pep rally and introduced play- ers and coaches from both the football and soccer teams. "The event coincided with the 200th birthday of our constitution which allows all of us to come together in the first place," said Reavis. "Without the constitution itself, it's possible that none of this would be happen- ing...we are very fortunate to live in America." During the afternoon citizens showed support for our nation's constitution by taking pen in hand to sign a document with the inscription - WE THE PEOPLE... OF NORTHEASTERN STATE UNIVERSITY AND TAH- LEQUAH, OKLAHOMA BELIEVE IN AND SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. It was obvious dedication was the key ingredient that brought the university, townspeople, and downtown mer- chants together to show the pride and appreciation felt for one another.

Though blue skys would have been nice, the wet day wasn't a problem, considering we had a winning team, talented performers and enthusiastic fans. The theme chosen for the slate of events was "A Disney Celebration". Many joined the fun and helped transform the campus into a miniature Disneyland. For the first time prizes were offered for building and office decorations. The office of Financial Aid took first place in the building category, literally becoming a castle with popular Disney characters scattered across the lawn. In the office division Business Affairs came away with the win. A clear October evening was the setting of the pep rally and bonfire held the night before the game. A mass of students, alumni and faculty feasted on hot-dogs and Pepsi while being entertained by speakers and perform- ers who participated in the festivities. They introduced the football team who urged fans to come to the game and cheer them to victory. Homecoming queen candi- dates were also introduced. The audience was treated to the talents of Redmen feature twirler Sheila Bohon who performed a splen- did routine. The evening was then capped off with more performances, accompanied by the band, featuring the cheerleaders and the Majestics. About 300 alumni began the next day's events early with the traditional Letterman's and Women's Club breakfasts. The parade was next on the program. Mickey Mouse and friends led the procession of stu- dents and participants displaying the 20 floats which contained many beloved Disney characters. As float en- trants proudly headed forthe starting point, it was rain- ing. Toilet paper was already falling out of the chicken wire, and some entrants noticed that whoever painted the group's name on the float misspelled it. Then, they looked around and saw that Cinderella's slippers were muddy and someone else's Mickey had wet ears. No, the floats weren't perfect, but the efforts were appreciat- ed by the crowd. No parade could be considered complete without the precision marching and spirited music of area bands and our parade was no exception. Tahlequah High School carried the 4A-5A division in the band compe- titiong lnola captured 3A honors and Kansas High School took first in the 1A-2A Spot. Following the parade about 140 guests attended the Awards Luncheon. Dr. Leon Perry Woods, Jr., Fort Smith, Ark. physician was named Outstanding Alum- nus. There were five Citation of Merit awards given. Recipients were Dr. Kent Lashley, Gwen Moss McKee- man, Orville Shapley, Dr. Ralph Whitworth and an or- ganization, the Descendants of the Cherokee Seminaries Students. Pre-game activities featured our marching band as they dedicated a percussion instrumental to alumni Our theme brought together an array of lovable characters.

The alumni Majestics joined the current team for a spectacular performance. The Redman and Evangel College struggled on a rain-soaked Gable field to a scoreless first quarter Quar- terback Calvin Johnson connected on a 12-yard touch- down pass to tightend Walt Pesterfield, and Jerry Springer's extra point gave the Redmen a 7-O lead with 9:22 remaining in the second period. Evangel Crusaders roared back, elasping only one minute and 37 seconds when quarterback John Price teamed with flanker James Feazell on a 70-yard bomb, tying the score 7-7. With 53 seconds left, tailback John Brown rambled eight yards for another touchdown, the extra point attempt was unsuccessful. The Redmen left the field with a 13-7 halftime lead. During halftime activities, junior Mary Beth deSteiguer fdaughter of John and Mary Jo deSteiguer, alumnij was crowned homecoming queen. Jamie Woo- dy was named first runner-up. Other members of the royal court were Sherri Greer, Paula Linville and Mary Ann Zoellner. Outstanding Alumnus Dr. Woods and Citation of Merit award winners were introduced. Our band, cheerlead- ers, the Majestics and the Entertainers performed a delightful Walt Disney medley concluding the intermis- sion festivities. After battling back-and-forth for 12 minutes, the Red- men broke away from the Crusaders and scored nine points in a 17 second span. The Fiedmen were credit- ed with a safety when Evangel intentionally grounded the ball in their own end zone at the 2:45 mark of the third period. Fullback Kevin Rucker then sprinted 48-yards for paydirt and Springer added the extra point, expanding the margin 22-7, Ftedmen. Midway through the fourth quarter, Evangel Crusaders concluded the scoring on a 22-yard halfback option play from Charles Bowers to James Feazell with running back Drew Smith going for the conversion which provided the 22-15 outcome. Sometimes homecoming didn't turn out quite as it was planned. Sometimes it turned out better. Return- ing graduates were able to renew friendships and recap- ture memories, while current students made their own memories. lt is true the weather didn't cooperate. We had wet onlookers, muddy fields, some droopy floats and more than a few mussed hairdos, but that didn't stop devoted fans from turning out to celebrate a spec- tacular Homecoming. vm wtf 31 ' .te xi Campus Life .K 6 ,T gfl sv kg, - 1. 1-,r-ws t' W X T 1 Mickey Mouse and crew of Disney friends conduct the parade, kick- ing off the day's activities.

One factor that directly ai- tected us was that the weeks slate ot activities fell on the same week as homecoming. The Counseling and Career Center was responsi- ble for Coordinating the event. Counselors were avail- able at the center for help in the areas of eating disorders and drug or alcohol abuse, Carol Young, coordinator and counselon was in charge of the presentation. " It was very significant that this came during homecoming, ct time when many students drink more heavily," Young said. "Our goal was to encourage students to be aware of the dangers of alcohol abuse and to give them more infor- mation on how to make responsible decisions regard- ing the use of alcohol," stat- ed Young. Films such as "D.W.I.", a documentary about drinking and driving featuring the hue story ot LA, Dodgers pitcher Bob Welch were presented. Workshops, displays and lec- tures were on the schedule. Dianne Barker, Cherokee County assistant district attor- ney and Ieroi Bowles, Hill- crest Medical Center therapist were among the professionals on campus en- couraging students to be aware. Homecoming l 7 Packed Tight Record-breaking enrollment figures caused overcrowding in the dorms. In case you didn't notice, a rise in the number of students meant longer lines, additional applicants for finan- cial aid and more bodies roaming around campus. The number of students reached an all time high this year. Fall figures topped the previous record and boasted a total of 8,1283 while spring enrollment main- tained the numbers with 8,041 students. Both tallies shattered last year's records. According to the College Press Service, the nation- al college student population was bigger than ever despite predictions offered by the U.S. Department of Education that it would decline as the number of 18- to 25-year-olds in the U.S. decreased. About 12.5 million students registered for classes, up from 12.4 million the previous year. In 1982 the depart- ment predicted that only 12.1 million would show up on campuses in 1987. ln the late seventies, demographers almost universally projected annual college enrollment declines from 1981 through 1991. The department attributed the growing enrollment figures to the increasing numbers of older and part-time students, women, minorities and foreign students on campuses across the nation. f Personal items add comfort when dealing with the emotions of be- ing away lrom home.

The number of stu- dents who lived in university housing reached the ca- pacity of 1,52O. Arlan Hanson, director of housing said, "No one was turned away from housing, but measures had to be taken to double up resident assistants to ac- commodate the number of students who sought space in the dorms." Traditionally, there were more female than male stu- dents living on campus. This year, however, the situa- tion was reversed with male halls, primarily Hastings and Logan, being more than full. Talking Leaves, whose contract was close to expiration, occupied two wings of the Leoser complex. lt was hoped that this space would be ready for student occupancy in the fall of 1988. Average college growth in Oklahoma stood at 6 per- cent. Ours was 27.9 percent overall, making us the fastest growing four-year university in the state. Despite this growth, state funding was unable to keep up the pace and no plans for housing expansion were made. A ei Q, ' , , v n 1 . .5 MV -J' Q H 4 . -. z. ,Q 5 f O 3. 1 ' Q.- f t 14 5 .

"The new card increased services and reduces abuse of the old system," said Bob Smith, Auxiliary Services. "There were a number of headaches with the new sys- tern, but it has been working.

The system was increased in November, adding mechanics to automate checking out library books, and a system to charge in the bookstore will be added by the fall of 1988. lt will take time to work out all the bugs, as it does with any new system, but for hav- ing just one card to keep up with, it was well Worth the effort. rits.

Q QQ ' Ns ..,,..........--4.-..... On Their Own Leaving mam and dad behind, students experienced life away from heme. The noise ripped through the wall. lt was the fourth time this week. She tried to hide under two blan- kets, but it just wouldn't muffle the steady rythmn of the music. Finally, hours later, quiet. Sleep at last. Life in a dorm was at times a great experience, but it had some drawbacks. Noisy neighbors was one of them. "The noise some nights was just unbearable. It was really upsetting when you were trying to sleep and the music from next door would vibrate the wall," sopho- more Deirdere McCarthy said. Most students looked forward to new freedom when they left home. At last, freedom from all those petty rules and regulations. Well, not quite. In their place came new problems and a new set of rules. About 1,400 students made their home in university housing this year. Packed like sardlnes, the closeness was often just too much. While adequate for sleeping and socializing, it was sometimes difficult to find the quiet needed for study and concentration. "The dorm was for sleeping. The library was for studying. lt was easier because there were no phone calls or other things to interrupt you," said Becky Pen- nington. But there was a light side to dorm life. According to senior Cheryl Parham it was a perfect place to social- ize. "The social environment of the dorms was what made them appealing. You had a lot of friends. You could always find something to do. You lost that when you lived off-campus." Economics figured into housing decisions. For most, off-campus living was just too expensive. Other students felt life on their own was better with fewer restrictions. "lt was more fun living off-campus. You didn't have 00 -...1 to live by so many set rules. It was also cheaper, if you had enough roommates to keep the rent low," Scott Harlow said. For many students off-campus living wasn't an op- tion to be considered. All students living off-campus were requried to be at least 21 years old or a junior be- fore the first day of classes of the fall semester. Of course, married students could live on their own, and most did as there was always a waiting list for married student housing. Even for commuters living off cam- pus, that status had to be established. Dorm life had lots of advantages. You had your own room toften sharedj, enough food points to tide you over till the end of a semester jsupposedlyj, set hours for visitation jwhich were never long enoughj and plenty of friends fto offer help when neededj. Yes, students arrived thinking authority was a thing of the past. Surprise! On arrival they discovered it wasn't quite what they expected. Now there was a new set of rules and new authority figures. Resident assistants became the generals, armed with rosters, ready to do battle. And do battle they did, but treaties were signed, and conflicts resolved. So, life without authority was a pipe dream. The rules of home were replaced with rules for living on campus. Nonetheless, dormitory life was a mixture of things -- some fun, some friends, some frustrations, even a few enemies. But all in all, it was well worth the stay. 'n Darryl Thomas Articles from home help make a person feel more at ease.

Residents of Wyly Hall dormitory faced relocation in the wake of a decision by university officials to increase the size of the College of Optometry. Affected by the decision were 24 residents of Wyly Hall who were informed the rooms they occupied would be merged into the College of Optometry. Why did the administration persist in this "shoot first and explain later" policy of handling its dorm residents? Was the expansion so urgent that it couldn't have been put off until summer? Officials at the College of Optom- etry could not be reached for comment. President W. Roger Webb said, "Additional space was needed for offices and laboratory facilities. We've imposed on their teaching space for a long time. ln the interest of quali- ty education they just needed more room." The residents, informed in October of their upcom- ing January move, met the news with mixed feelings. "The optometry department is important to the school, but so are dorm residents," said Jose Rojas, Tulsa junior. "The optometry department has waited several years, why couIdn't they have waited one more semester and done the renovations after school was out?" questioned Rojas. "lt would have been so much eaiser for the stu- dents and the Housing Office." At least one resident raised the question: Did Hous- ing break the contract each dorm resident must sign?

"We signed a one-year contract to live in Wyly, which was a quiet dorm. lf we had broken our contract, we would have been fined or lost our housing deposit," stated Glabas. Housing Director Arlan Hanson said, 'tHousing con- tracts retained only a space in university dormitories and not necessarily specific halls or rooms." Wyly residents were on the top of the list for mid-term relocation and Housing tried to keep the residents together. This task could not be accomplished. The Housing Office, caught in the middle, had to rely on rooms vacated during the interim and ended up plac- ing the evicted residents in various dorms across campus. Wyly Hall was one of the most sought after dorms on campus. The limited number of rooms made living in Wyly a special honor. The students who lived there had a certain spirit not seen in other dorms. Where else could you call and hear, 'Radio Station W-Y-L-Y taking your request'? When we lost Wyly Hall for good, we lost more than just 12 needed rooms. Another unique part of our campus fell by the wayside. lu Doug Terry New equipment will help optometry students keep up with the la technology in their field of study, The decision to expand the spei ized college was a much needed step in the right direction, but met criticism as to the way it was handled. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj fy- , . if sm .MHZ Advanced technology replaces the residents of Wyly Hall.

When the number of thefts on campus started ris- ing, campus police asked that the doors to all resident halls be locked at midnight and remain locked until 8 a.m, Blaine Villines, campus police investigator said, "Be- tween luly and December 28 personal property thefts were reported at a total loss of 57835. Of these losses the to- tal recovery rate was only 351500, Which is high com- pared to national figures." in an effort to alleviate thefts, a new program was started on campus. The pro- gram, Operation I.D., consist- ed of having your social security number etched on goods such as televisions, stereos, bicycles or other items of value. "A thief usually passes over an item that has a social security number on it," stat- ed Villines. It wasn't believed that the program would help to catch the person who stole an item, but that it would help a victim trying to recover sto- len goods. According to Villines, "When a piece of stolen mer- chandise was recovered, to get it back you had to prove it was yours." With the new program and the added security of locked doors, students didn't seem to mind being prisoners after midnight. filikikyifilalfi .,-n.- j gag... c. 2 3 V Determination and patience are also virtues of the mature studt - Lori Griffin relys on the combined experience of Tim Dorsey, spring 4 tor of The Northeastern, and Norman Torrez, staff member, to help g solve a problem. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasl Starting a college education after years of Working Was hard for many students. F or the non-traditional student tthose over age 25j getting a college education called for big adjustments in finances, family life and learning how to be a good student. Going back to school became more and more and still had study habits, but as time went on I real- popular, according to Dr. Charles Galbraith, professor of education. "Compared to when I started teaching here in 1966, it seems to me as though we are getting a much more mature student," he explained. Statistics from Admissions and Fiecords supported Galbraith's observation. Figures showed the number of students over 25 totaled 4,161, while the number un- der 25 was slightly less at 4,119. The reasons students came back to school were as varied as the people. Many teachers returned to recertify in other fields because of the problems with the state's economy and lack of funding for state schools. In order to get and keep a job teachers were seeking certification in more than one area. Other students, especially women, returned to fulfill their occupational dreams after their children were grown. Some were forced to seek an education in order to support their families. Whatever the reason, older students had one thing in common, the struggle of adjusting to student life. "lt was hard learning to take notes again - to think again," said Barbara Brinkley, Tahlequah, who returned to recer- tify her elementary teaching credentials after working as a hairdresser for 25 years. Patti Maize, Keys, agreed. "Learning to study for a test again was really new to me because I hadn't done it in so many years," she explained. "I also felt a little out of place," added Maize. "A lot of the students seemed so young." For PauIa'Hood, who returned to school after work- ing in the printing industry for 10 years, coming here was a good step. "I like it here because the students are so diverse. At first I felt I had a disadvantage be- ized I had the advantage because I had intentions of learning," she said. Terry Glenn Brackett, Porter, agreed that older stu- dents were actually one up on younger students be- cause of attitude. "I have yet to meet anyone over 24 that doesn't have a positive attitude about their educa- tion. lt's often not the same with younger students," he said. Leon Brashear, Stilwell, summed the subject up say- ing, "l was there because I wanted to be there. It was a lot different 15 years ago when I was in school. Edu- cation means a great deal more to me now." Besides the stress of adjusting to student life and the advantages maturation has, another dimension for the older student was fitting school into a life already full of responsibilities. The hardest strain seemed to be on family life. "lt was extremely difficult for my family," said Brashear. "lt took a lot of time away from them and they had to sacrifice in many ways. My wife took on extra respon- sibilities allowing me to come back," he added. After sifting through all the pros and cons of return- ing to school, most older students felt the advantages outweighed the disadvantages. Many faculty members agreed. "There was no question, the older students were much more focused on learning," said Dr. David Fitzgerald of the math and science division. Dr. Fitzgerald continued, "They were often here be- cause they had an established goal while the younger students were still searching for their path in life. Older students understood what was neccessary to meet their goals. They definitely had an advantage. It wasn't that they were smarter, they were just more experienced." cause so many students were fresh out of high school 'I Paula Linville as j es- ., ,,.

Enrollment was up and a factor that re- mained stable was that two- thirds of the campus popula- tion consisted of commuters. University classes drew many students from the six county area that surrounded Tahlequah. For commuters the biggest problem seemed to come upon arrival, especially if they had afternoon classes. Finding a place to park, Without walking a half mile to class, became a burden- some, if not impossible, task. The Office of Parking and Traffic took measures to pre- vent those problems by ex- panding and remodeling some ot the parking lots. Tidmore Apartments, form- erly mazried student housing, was vacated and provided a 49-space lot located on Goingsnake Street. Lots at the Fitness Center and Ross Hall were remodeled. Parking was only one problem commuters dealt with While on campus. The opportunity to get involved in university events seemed as big a problem. Efforts were made to plan activities around the entire student population and not just campus and town resi- dents. A student organization for commuters was formed as an outlet tor travelers to voice their ideas on how to keep the majority happy. Older Than Average 25 Balancing Act Student-parents tried to balance their time between school and home. When the weather was too hot or too cold or the sun was too bright, making it all the way across campus to one of those 8 a.m. classes was like a mission impossible. What if you lived 70 miles away and had two chil- dren to get dressed and fed before you could get start- ed? Tulsa senior Carol Collins, mother of two said, "The hard part of being a mother and a student was finding the time to devote to both of them." When asked if she had any suggestions for those contemplating a family while still in school, Collins replied, "My advice would be to go to school first, then start a family. School is harder when you have that responsibility." Fort Gibson sophomore, Debbie Hawkins agreed that the hard part of being a mother and a student was find- ing the time she needed to get everything done. Mother of two, Hawkins said, "One benefit was that it helped me to be more organized." What would Debbie tell someone considering parenthood while still in school? "Go see a psychiatrist. Quickl", she said laughingly. "Looking back I think I have a fair overview of that situation," said Sandy Wagner, university publications director. "lt's certainly not the easiest way to get your education, but it can be done. I returned to school when my older son was only one. l had very little income, two years of education ahead of me and a child to support. lt was tough." "There were advantages," said Wagner. "I was more serious in my studies and had a definite sense of pur- wr v pose - survival! I sometimes envied my friends who could go out in the evenings. I didn't have that option. If you had a choice, I would not recommend getting an education on the 'parent pIan', though I would en- courage parents considering a return to school to do so. It is more difficult, but the results are worth the effort," Father of three, freshman David Garner agreed that finding the time to be a parent and student was the hard part. "The quality time with my kids suffered, and I knew they missed it." Senior Shellie Davis, single parent of one said if she had one complaint it was the absence policy of some professors. "lf my son was sick, he had to come first, and that 'alter-four-absences-you-can't-make-an-A' rule sometimes made things difficult." Although the frustrations that came with parenting and being a student seemed endless, increasing num- bers of student-parents continued to enroll. Juggling schedules, meals and studies created a never-ending tension in their lives, but most were still convinced that down the road, the results made the sacrifices worthwhile.

After the classrooms were empty and the faculty parking lots were vacated, students began the second part of their day -- night. Whether it was Saturday or Tuesday, everyone managed to find a relaxing way to unwind. At least, most did. Some poor souls spent their evenings with more books. The library became a hideaway as many resigned themselves to late night research. Mike Harmon and Shawn Harris found refuge in their dorm. "lf I went to the library I wouldn't get any study- ing done," Harris said. "I would always see friends and talk to them instead of studying. lf I stayed in my room I could lock the door and make myself study." Other students followed Harmon's example and sought the privacy of home to study or relax. Harris found respite in the lounge. "inthe dorm relaxing, play- ing pool, or watching television was where I would be for a couple of hours after class every day. I wouldn't think about school," Harmon said. "Then l'd try to find a little excitement." The Fitness Center was another favorite place to relieve tension. Students could swim, play racquetball or basketball, lift weights or do aerobics. Some enjoyed just watching the action while others worked up a sweat. There were always other options. It didn't have to be a Saturday night to find some fun. If you wanted action all you had to do was ask. There was always something going on somewhere. Many campus inhabitants rented movies, some joined special interest groups, and others frequented the clubs close to campus. Diamond Lil's Cantina, El Paso's and Granny's Attic provided a place where friends could gather for dancing and refreshments. "We like to dance," said junior Hazel McDowell. "The best place to party had to be EI Paso's on ladies night. It wasn't the place as much as it was the people. So, when quiet settled on the main campus, after- hours entertainment was just getting started in other places. Activities as varied as our students held many captive through much of the night until dawn called them back to responsibility and another day of lectures and books.

" For those who divided their time between school and job, finding enough time for everything that needed to be done was often frustrating but had to be accomplished. Going to school might have been enough for some people, but many found that a job after class was es- sential for survival. "I had a rigid schedule, so I had to make time for things that had to be done," said junior Jenny Brophy. Brophy, full-time student and accessories buyer for a furniture store saw advantages and disadvantages to working and going to school. "lt kept my mind active. I wasn't around campus as much as I would have liked. Instead of running around with my friends, I always had to go to work," said Brophy. Joel Sherrill, sophomore, worked 15 to 20 hours a week at a local grocery store. He was also enrolled in 12 hours of classes and was concerned about his job interfering with schoolwork. "When I had to take ex- ams, my job probably had some effect on the results, especially if I had to work the night before," he said. Although making time for classes and a job seemed to be workin itself, Sherrill found that it was a necessi- ty. "Sometimes when l'd get out of class, I really didn't want to go to work. And sometimes after l'd worked at night I really didn't feel like going to class the next morn- ing. lt was something I had to do to get through school," said Sherrill. For some students staying busy had advantages. "lt kept me out of trouble. l'd have had more time to goof off if I hadn't had to work," said sophomore Micah Brown Whether in class or on the job, pleasant days make it difficult to stay inside and keep your mind on what you are doing.

Students were not the only ones on campus that found it necessary to work outside the classroom. Dr. Dan DeLoache, professor of education, estimated that 50 percent of the instructors on campus had other jobs as well. "People just couldn't maintain the quality of life they were accustomed to on a teacher's salary. They had to have something else to supplement that income," said DeLoache. Dr. Amy Blackburn, associate professor of education and psychology, maintained a private practice as a licensed counselor in partnership with Dr. Dan Fuller. "I worked most of the day. That was really all I did. That took most of my time. I either taught at night or worked at night," said Blackburn. As part of her job, Blackburn taught counseling, which included a night class in Tulsa once a week in addition to running her practice in Muskogee. Limiting our work to education probably would have been enough for all of us, but somehow our budgets usually didn't agree. It did make a difference to be work- ing at what you had been trained for as opposed to go- ing to classes for six hours, then sewing hamburgers for six hours and then doing homework. For students and teachers alike, there just didn't seem to be enough hours in the day. H Jenny Jackson , Q' jobs, whether on campus or off, are few and far between.

While most students worked through the summer to pay school fees and rent in the fall, a few had other plans for their hard-earned cash -- new clothes. The quest for the perfect back-to-school wardrobe continued. During the summer many campus coeds searched diligently through dozens of fashion maga- zines and malls to find out exactly what the best dressed students would be wearing in the fall. Students followed basic college strategies when they began buying their fall wardrobes. If clothes couIdn't survive for a few days on the back of a chair, or on a pile in the middle of the floor, then they probably wouldn't survive for very long in a dorm room. Another important reason for durable clothes was not only the treatment they would receive from the student, but also the treatment they would receive from the student's friends, roommate, and the roommate's friends who might also be wearing the clothes. Dress remained casual, reflecting the relaxed friend- liness of our campus and community. Most students got back to basics with the oversized jean jacket, and the ever-popular faded jeans. Most denim clothing had gone through the mill, literally, before being sold in the finer department stores. Acid-washed, stone-washed, and frosted were just some of the terms used to describe the fading process, which made new clothes look worn. Parents couldn't understand why anyone would spend S40 on a pair of jeans that looked like they had been worn for two years. Advertisers claimed it was because, Fashions from the past are hot again! No one ever expected the return of a shirt that was popular in the 1960s, but when cold weather rolled in so did the turtleneck. Michelle Chambers and Laura Otterstrom wore their turtlenecks under favorite sweatshirts. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj No matter what the weathen the mini-skirt, another fashion from days gone by, can be worn with bobby socks in spring or tights in the fall. Paula Linville stayed with her jeans and reminded Mysti Evans and Sal- ly Moore about the old 'nc more than two inches above the knee' rule. iPhoto - Mike Brown.j Campus Life Q 3 2 "bythe time your jeans looked that good, it was time to throw them away." There seemed to be a fascination with nostalgia. Mini- skirts, which began to resurface in '86 - '87, were back in full force. Turtlenecks, another style straight from the '60s, were a big help in achieving the "layered look". Fashion scarves, in every color and pattern imagina- ble, were another wardrobe must. Stereos blasted with the music of the 1960's, boasting such groups as The Beach Boys and The Grateful Dead. Many students caught the activist spirit that made that generation so unique. Comfort seemed to be at the top of the list, obvious from the fact that sweatsuits could be found in most ev- ery closet. Whether in comfortable sweats or jeans and a rugby shirt, accessories were definitly part of the styl- ish student's ensemble. Rings on every finger, two swatches twatchesj, and weaved braclets of every color were used to give any outfit that "just right" look. Wear- ing an unmatched pair of earrings was another acces- sory option. Yes, the quest for the perfect wardrobe continued, and in keeping with the California Fiaisins, "hearing it through the grapevine", was but one way students were able to keep tabs on the latest styles. 5 JoAnn Easter Accessories are considered vital by fashion conscious stud- Elizabeth Oaks never had a problem keeping track of the time, and v ing a ring on almost every finger helped express her person iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj , . ,, ,Wee .41 tr it N-'U' Acid-washed jeans are another big hit on campus, but the ultra-faded denim can also be found in the form of skirts and jackets as well, Linda Elkins preferred a skirt while Melissa Bresset chose jeans, but they all agreed that either would go with Andrea Griifins' rug- by shirt, iPhoto - Darryl Thomasl Denim, whether faded or just good old blue, plays a major part in the fashion scene.

Stanford University had its business program, Yale had its law school, but for two days during the fall semester our "Scholar-In-Flesidence" program reached new heights. S College of Education and the College of Optometry, but in late autumn we reached the pinnacle of academic achievement and experiences with a visit from former president Gerald Ft. Ford. "I was awed as President Ford walked past me to the podium," said Kathy Schaffer, senior, McAIester, "He was close enough that I felt the air move as he walked past. To think that I was that close to a man with the wealth of experiences and responsibilities he had was quite a privilege." Tahlequah senior Paula Linville was influenced by Ford's never-say-die attitude. "He could have lived off his past glory, but instead he travels around, not just talking about past accomplishments, but about current issues in which he believes. A truly successful person not only achieves goals but keeps on working and striv- ing -- a continuous, on-going process." said Linville. Talk about organization! Ford's itinerary might remind one of the McDonaId's commercial that showed a man in a three-piece suit, walking to work, reading a newspaper, eating an Egg McMuffin. Time management was obviously one of the skills sharpened while run- ning the country. Example: 8:20 a.m. Depart Ftosamund House 8:25 a.m. Arrive University Center 8:30 a.m. Breakfast 9:00 a.m. Depart For Press Conference 9:05 a.m. Press Conference If a presidential motorcade could get from one site to another in five minutes, students had no excuse be- ing Iate to class.

Ford stated, "I am a self-avowed 'hawk', always have been, always will be. The harder you work the luckier you get. If the job has to be done, do it." These statements offered insight on how a 74-year-old man could keep such a pace. During his public address while on campus Ford said, 'tl appreciate President Webb's kind introduction. The truth is I needed a morale boost after an introduction several weeks ago in California where I was introduced as Betty Ford's husband, Jack Ford's daddy, and Steve Ford's father." When asked about his golf game Ford said, "I am getting better, I'm also hitting fewer spec- tators." Ford also spoke of his friendship with Bob Hope calling him a "great American". When asked who he would choose to finish out his golf foursome Hope said, "Jerry Ford, a faith healer, and a paramedic." He also said, "Ford made golf a combat sport." The serious side of Ford was expressed when he spoke of the challenges facing America. "I feel most serious is the fiscal problem, encompassing a trade deficit of S160 billion, unresolved debt burden of other countries, and deficits of the magnitude we've had in the Federal Treasury. We are sitting on a time bomb and need to take corrective action," stated Ford. Speaking in support of our policy concerning the Persian Gulf, he felt President Reagan made the right decision. Yes, Stanford had its business program, and Yale had its law school, but years from now when news is heard of Gerald Ford's achievements, or of issues he dis- cussed while here, thoughts will return to our campus with reflections of his two-day visit and the once-in-a- Iifetime opponunity to meet a man of his stature.

Then it slapped us in the face. Most of us had high hopes for the new year. However, in labs ofthe many designated AIDS research centers across the nation, scientists started the new year with some alarming statistics. The United States began the year with 50,265 reported cases, more than 41 percent recorded in 1987. An average of 400 cases were reported each week, ac- cording to the Federal Center for Disease Control. According to USA Today the average would rise an additional 66 percent for the year and by 1991 more than 270,000 cases would be on the books. The whole world seemed to be thinking about the deadly disease. lt was a touchy subject that couldn't be discussed without using words like sex, promiscui- ty and condoms. Designated as AIDS Awareness and Prevention Month by President Reagan, October was a time when it was hoped that people would become more aware ofthe rapid spread and the alarming fatal- ity rate of almost 100 percent. As a participant in this nationwide program, the John Vaughan Library set up two informative AIDS displays. The exhibit included the original Red Cross pamphlets, the Surgeon General's report, U.S. Public Health Department brochures and various articles on myths about HTLV Ill. "Response to the displays was overwhelming," Government Publications librarian Jill Moriarty said. "Professors and students responded in a wise and ma- ture way. I was impressed that they were concerned enough to take the time to be informed on a very seri- ous topic." Although 1981 was known as the year of AIDS dis- covery, medical sleuths examining frozen tissue proved that the first infected person died in 1969. Evidently the virus has been seeking a foothold in this country for a least one generation. Rumors on how you could get the disease spread even faster than the disease itself. A list released by Dr. Daniel Gervich, specialist in AIDS research, enti- tled "How you get AIDS, how you don't," contained 40 rumored ways the disease could be contracted. Of the 40 only 10 were true. Ron Reagan, Jr., in an ad campagin endorsing the use of condoms as a preventative measure said, "Our Secretary of Education issued a pamphlet that was sup- posed to deal with the problem, but it didn't do any good." Another program initiated by the Department of Public Health met with mixed feelings. ln this program volun- teer workers sought out intravenous drug users and offered them a new needle in exchange for a dirty one. The rules that govern a person's sexual life have changed. Gay men and IV. drug users were not the only ones in danger. Education remained the only hope for the future. The more people understand, the more un- derstanding people become. QV Campus Life 'X 3 6 Several student organizations sponsor blood drives throughout the year. All donations are thoroughly screened for the HTLV III virus. Sad- ly, many unsuspecting victims contracted the disease by receiving trans- fusions of infected blood. iPhoto - Mike Brownj Fear of contracting the deadly disease is a concern no longer limit- ed to homosexuals and intravenous drug users.

A thick wooden door seemingly as high as the ceil- ing loomed ahead. Visitors to yesterday struggled to pull the heavy door aside. Merriment floods out, overtak- ing the guestg music, song, and glasses rang as toasts were made. Well there was ole' King Henry Vlll himself. Who says you can never recapture the past? ln De- cember merry ole' England came to life in the form of the annual Boare's Heade Feaste. The University Ballroom wasn't a 14th century cas- tle, but with decorations, a feaste fit for a king, and a myriad of amusement, the charms of the Old World tra- ditions were rediscovered. The customary setting for the traditional event includes a mixture of Renaissance and Elizabethan scenery and costumes. Entertainment from 42 student performers was light- hearted and lively. To ensure revelry ran high was the Lord of Misrule's tleader of festivitiesl only care. Madri- gal Singers and the Brass lnstrumentalists presented outstanding musical selections from the Renaissance masters. The Players improvised their presentations from situations that arose, just as their ancestors so ably did in the Olde English Greate Halls. The menu twhich would have made King Henry proudl was based on a Renaissance theme with ban- quet style courses served bythe performers. The "piece Campus Life K3 8 de resistance" was, of course, "fresshe cuts of porke". The boar in ancient mythology was a sacred animal. lt created havoc in the medieval villages where it was pursued and killed. The boar's head was then brought home as a sign of triumph. These scenes were depicted on several large tapes- tries created by Richard Coones, assistant professor of art. A total of 12 Tudor Gothic style tapestries were creat- ed with acrylic paints on muslin and took four years to complete. "I am familiar with medieval work from researching it. I tried to paint and design in the style of a court designer or painter of the 14th or 15th century," said Coones, who used material gathered from various trips to Europe. The annual event boasts 136 performances and a to- tal attendance of more than 40,000 since its inception in 1971. The scholarship fund, supported by the Patron's Night Program, has contributed more than S50,000 to advance the academic programs on which the feast is based tart, drama, musicl.

Kaleidoscope '88 Students and faculty were proud to take our spring festival "on the road" this year The Kaleidoscope theme, "On the Road," turned out to be strangely prophetic. Certainly, several events traveled a bit funher than planned. The basic idea behind the theme was that not only would entertainment and activities come to campus, but university groups would go out to surrounding schools and communities as well. Actress and Broadway star Shirley Jones traveled from Tahlequah to Tulsa in an unexpected move. Sched- uled to perform with the Bartlesville Symphony Orches- tra, the last-minute shuffling occurred when ticket sales seemed too dismal to provide a sizeable audience. Af- ter moving the concert to Tulsa's Mabee Center, sales increased considerably. But that wasn't the end of coordinator Jon Finch's headaches. The Tulsa Musicians Union turned thumbs down on the Bartlesville group, composed of both un- ion and non-union members. A new orchestra had to be found only two weeks before the performance. Another headliner, Helen Thomas, Washington Bureau Chief of the United Press International, had to cancel at the last minute because of a death in the fa- mily. ln spite of these disappointments, there were many other activities and speakers left to entertain par- ticipants. Film and stage actress Gretchen Wyler was in con- cert with "Lady Legends of the Music Theatre and the Songs that Made Them Famous" and classical pianist Peter Simon played to an appreciative audience. Each person could pick and choose speakers that appealed to hislher specific interests. Some of the Kaleidoscope choices included Dr. Eugene Swearingen, former member of the Oklahoma State Regents speak- ing on "Free Enterprise"g Kayle Dahlem, president of the Oklahoma Education Association and Dr. John Broi- da, psychologist from the University of Maine speak- ing on "What Alcoholic Rats May Be Doing to Their Pups."

'Pre- pare your portfolio. Produce your work here.' He was thankful for the experience he had gained at our univer- sity under the tutelege of C.H. Parker and Charles Seat." For students like Pease, Kaleidoscope gave them an opportunity to receive encouragement and insights into their desired professions. Several symposiums were offered which also gave students the chance to learn from people involved in specific professions. Speaker topics ranged from computer graphics and advertising art, to time management and assertive behavior. There were 13 campus groups that took to the road visiting 16 area schools with programs featuring singers, dancers, puppets or speakers who discussed vital is- sues of our nation. The greatest student appeal was in annual events such as the fashion show, talent com- petition and Kaleidoscope Karnival, an event featuring organization-sponsored booths and games. Cheerlead- er Heath Miller was crowned Mr. Northeastern in the annual Kaleidoscope competition. A first for Kaleidoscope was the weekend arts and crafts fair held in the new green and white striped tent. So, while campus groups traveled and the Kaleidoscope Committee experienced more than a small amount of frustraton, there were still lots of events to mark the usual blend of entertainment and education to be remembered by students and guests that joined the an- nual celebration. - uv. g A t ,,, ,, . ifr-s,,-v' , K.

N I , . ng M . ,, W Wmivg ,J 1 ,W ' Native Homecoming The 16th annual Symposium on the Ameri- can Indian drew nationwide participation. The American Bald Eagle may serve as an emblem for the United States but it also serves as a channel for the prayers of the American Indian, according to Crosslin Smith, Cherokee medicine man. "The eagle is very highly respected in our culture. Prayers are channeled through this bird," said Smith. The eagle has been called the great messenger. "The medicine man uses only one feather from the ea- gle, any more is abuse. It is a transgression if you use more than one," he explained. The eagle feather Smith used was worn inside the hatband of his black western hat that was placed on top of the speakers' podium while he spoke. "Way ofthe Sacred Eagle - Journey ofthe First Ameri- cans," was the theme for the 16th Annual Symposium on the American Indian, an event drawing about 2,000 participants from Oklahoma and other states. According to Carol Young, chairperson of the event and coordinator of Indian student counseling and tutor- ing, the program maintained an enviable reputation. One of the speakers commented that his people were really impressed that he was asked to speak at our sym- posium. He said after all the favorable comments he received that he was really impressed at being asked. "Other schools have tried to start programs - lowa and California. They copied our program almost ver- batimg however, none have been able to continue and keep it going," said Young. "They had much more money, too. We're in our 17th year. I think we've been successful because of our locale. We're the university with the largest Indian population in the nation. I also think the way we mail out information has helped. We keep track of those getting our materials and we ad- vertise heavily in Indian newspapers." The symposium was a unique blend of fun and seri- ous study. Activities included pow-wows, football, bin- go and Gospel singing. The 16th Annual Indian To master the art of weaving takes great patience and skill. Artist Mar- garet Roach Wheeler brought her wares and demonstrated the ancient art of weaving at the symposium. tPhoto Servicesj T Symposium run drew 77 participants and was fast be- coming a perennial favorite. On the more serious side, workshops and seminars covered banking, interviewing techniques, en- trepreneurship and a heated debate on state vs. lndi- an sovereignty. Many other topics were covered in the week-long event. Unquestionably the event that gained the greatest in- terest was the debate over tribal sovereignty, an issue that has made headlines in Oklahoma. Panel for the discussion was David Miley, attorney for the general counsel's office, Oklahoma Tax Commissiong John Echols, attorney for the Creek Nationg and G. William Fiice, attorney general, Sac and Fox tribe. Echols was the attorney who conducted a success- ful lawsuit against the State of Oklahoma who had at- tempted taxation of the Creek Nation's bingo game. "Tribes should be sovereign," said Young. "I think it would help them be self sufficient." A fashion show, Native American art exhibit, arts and crafts fair and a special exhibit from the Thomas Gil- crease Museum of Tulsa rounded out the schedule. "ln- dians view this as their homecoming!" said Young. "lt's a time when they come together year after year." Young felt the symposium provided a valuable service to both Native Americans and non-Indian Americans. "It's sad to say, but there are still strong feelings and some ra- cism. People don't always understand the lndian's needs. Events such as this help overcome ignorance and misunderstandings." 'I Jana Self An individuals heritage can often be recognized by man nerisms as well as apperance.

For the first time in several years sunny weather prevailed for the ceremony held Wednesday, May 11 at Gable Field in Tahlequah. Noel Smith, director of Admissions and Records, said that 1,112 bachelor's degrees, 449 master's degrees and 20 doctor of optometry degrees were conferred. That's a lot of graduates. And for Dr. Tom Cottrill, chairman of the Arts and Letters Division, that's a lot of names. Cottrill had the arduous task of reading each graduates name as he or she crossed the stage to ac- cept his or her diploma from President W. Roger Webb. 'Everyone on stage was trying to offer me water and things, but I was all right," Cottrill said. "l've been do- ing it since I came here in 1967." Cottrill, who is also a speech professor, said that he and other speech instructors have usually shared the name-calling responsibilities. "Initially, that was the idea because of our familiarity with phonetics and speech," he said. This year's ceremony was delayed for about five minutes due to a malfunction with the stage micro- phones. According to Cottrill, a circuit breaker blew and it took a few minutes to find a new outlet to use. But at least the weather was nice. Cottrill remembers 1986's ceremony well. It was held during a driving rain and electrical storm. "I backed away from the micro- phonej' he said with a laugh. "That was the last thing I wanted to touch." President W. Roger Webb stated that this year's graduating class was the university's largest ever, and that fact was reflected in the overflow crowd of approx- imately 13,000 which filled the stadium bleachers and most of the field itself. Special guests for the ceremony included Ms. Ava- lon Reece of Muskogee, chairman of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, and Mr. John R. deSteiguer of Tahlequah, a member of the Board of Re- gents of Oklahoma Colleges. Reece spoke briefly on "The ABC's of Education." The commencement speaker was Dr. Hans Brisch, chancellor of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Brisch became chancellor in December after an exhaustive search, and has been charged with providing the leadership needed to achieve the state's goals in the field of higher education. Brisch was born in 1940 in Kaiserslautern, Germa- ny, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1957. He became a U.S. citizen in 1964. Brisch holds a B.S. degree from Park College and a master's and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Kansas. Prior to becoming chan- cellor, he served as chief of staff for Nebraska goven- nor Kay Orr. In his address, Brisch stressed the importance of higher education to Oklahoma's future economic growth, and of the need for increased funding to help attract top faculty members and to stimulate research in high technology areas. Brisch also said that he had been highly impressed with the great beauty of our campus, and promised to return as often as he could. "People often refer to 'groves of Academiaf " Brisch said. "I have seen one here today." Earlier in the day, the U.S. Army Reserve Officers Training Corps commissioning was held at 2 p.m. at Seminary Hall and the College of Optometry Convoca- tion was held at 2 p.m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium. Dr. Don Betz, dean of Continuing Studies, was the speak- er for the optometry program. Following the evening ceremony, the Alumni Associ- ation hosted a reception for graduates and guests T 51 Academics Our College of Optometry is the only eye care school in the state, Students must spend an alloted amount of time at the Chester H, Pheiffer Optometry Clinic to fulfill their degree requirements.

AD I Ni Stiffer admission guidelines were a controversial issue at colleges across the state and future college students expressed concern about the new rules. The new criteria for admission to state institutions for higher education took effect July 1, 1988. Any stu- dent admitted for the first time after the given date had to meet the new curricular requirements and the per- formance measures. The requirements included a specified number of units in certain academic areas which the students had to complete prior to enrollment: four units of English tgrammar, composition, literaturejg three units of math talgebra I and higherjg two units each of lab science and history fincluding one unit of American historyj. Some students agreed with the new guidelines while others disagreed. "I remember how tough it was for me when I enrolled and the changes in academic courses I had to make. I sympathize with new students," said freshman Ftebec- ca Fields. The guidelines included not only freshman but any new student who did not satisfy the standards. "It applied to anyone who didn't meet the regulations," stated Noel Smith, director, Admissions Office. Performance requirements also had to be met by the students. At least one of the following were required for admittance: 2.7 grade point averageg upper two-thirds of graduating class or a score of 15 or better on the American College Testing examination. "I think the re- quirements will be helpful to the students because if they don't receive the basics in high school, they're not going to make it in college," commented senior John Thomas. "We have always had the performance requirements. 54 These weren't any different than they have ever been," said Dr, Al Williams, dean, Academic Affairs. "What was different was the stricter curriculum guidelines." Wil- liams said the changes were designed with the cooper- ation of state high schools and students who were going to be graduated in 1988 were informed in 1986 of the changing requirements so they would be prepared. If the guidelines had taken effect sooner, a number of this year's freshmen may not have been admitted. "lf the new guidelines had been implemented when I enrolled I wouIdn't have been admitted," said freshman Traci Williams. However, there were loopholes in the policy. Deficient students could enroll the summer after graduation and be accepted since they started prior to the policy im- plementation date. Secondly, a student deficient in one course could take that course in the summer and be admitted in the fall. Lastly, the university offered "zero- level" courses to make up deficiencies. Acting chancellor of higher education Don S. Hobbs, said he hoped the curriculum standards would not only improve the caliber of students in OkIahoma's four-year colleges and universities, but would also strengthen the curriculum offered by the state's secondary schools. Students had to work harder than ever to be accept- ed into college. Those lacking even one of the 11 re- quired high school courses would not be allowed to enroll in any public four-year college or university be- ginning with the 1988 fall semester.

N599 As the year progressed the journalism department implemented major changes from the traditional status of a print emphasis for education majors. In the past journalism majors were graduated with the capabilities to teach journalism, deal with a school's public relations and the ability to advise a high school yearbook or newspaper staff. However, in order to ex- pand their careers outside the area of working in a pub- lic school system, more specific education was needed. Changes in the program were designed to allow stu- dents with a specific interest to be educated in that par- ticular area and omitted many of the courses that applied to careers in journalism education. Academic programs were increased to four areas of emphasis: news editorial, public relationsladvertising, broadcast- ing and photojournalism. With these diversifications many students felt they could seek positions for which they would be qualified for in more specific fields. "My main interest was in pub- lic relations. l liked the thought of being one of the first to know what was going on in the world," said fresh- man Sally Moore. Moore believed being able to major in this specific area would be of great benefit as op- posed to having a small amount of general knowledge in several areas of journalism. The addition of professional quality video equipment allowed students with an interest in broadcasting to gain valuable hands-on experience which they were unable to receive in the past. "Since I senfed my internship with Tulsa's television station Channel 8, being in a class with more specific goals and having access to such equipment better acquainted me with the things I had to work with. These more specific classes gave me valu- able experience both behind and in front of the camera," said senior Mysti Evans. The department was able to purchase the new equip- ment with a 32,000 grant from the Scripps-Howard Foundation and matching funds from the university. The list of broadcasting supplies included a mini-cam, edit- ing machine, two video cassette recorders, two moni- tors, a tripod and a video light. This new equipment gave students valuable experience in filming video produc- tions in addition to the facilities to edit their work. Another change instigated by the faculty was the recommendation that the title "Journalism Department" be changed to "Department of Mass Communications." It was believed the new title would better describe the plan of expanding into the professional aspects of jour- nalism. The name change was approved by Dr Tom Cot- trill, division chairman, Arts and Letters, but still needed approval from the administration and the Board of Re- gents. 'tThe changes gave students the opportunity to concentrate in a specific area," said Byron Evers, profes- sor of journalism. The Society for Collegiate Journalists has had a recognized chapter on our campus for many years and KNSU Broadcasting Club was a new organization es- tablished for students with an interest in that specific area of journalism. Members of both organizations worked together and were involved in many activities including conventions, field trips and workshops that provided additional journalistic experiences outside the classroom. Although changes were being made, some traditional events continued. Press Day, an annual event held each spring, continued to be sponsored by the university as it has for almost 20 years. Professional journalists from all across the nation served as guest speakers. On the average more than 800 students attended and more than 200 trophies, plaques and certificates were presented to outstanding high school and junior college newspaper and yearbook students. Faculty members were continuing to plan expansion of the emphasis areas even further in order to promote professional growth in the field of journalism. "lt has been an exciting challenge with still much room for growth and improvement," said Dr. David Timmons, journalism instructor. These changes were definitely a step in the right direction evident by the fact that en- rollment in our journalism program increased by 150 students since the spring of 1986. Continued expansion and diversification remained on the drawing board and will be essential to keep up with an ever-growing and continually changing profession.

Many of the university's students took advantage of the opportunity to use the state's first computer- ized telephone enrollment system. Beginning April 6, students were able to register by using any Touch-Tone telephone. To utilize the sys- tem students were required to first be admitted to the university, have an approved plan of study on file and consult an adviser about their course selections. Cor- respondence study and classes at the University Center at Tulsa, however, were not available through the new senfice. Students also were able to add and drop courses, check their schedules and learn what classes were closed. Because the system used recorded voices, phone registration lines were open between 20 and 22 hours a day. This type of registration was the first step in developing a system which eventually will enable stu- dents to get information by telephone about campus events, financial aid, admission requirements, housing and other university services. Work on this project started last fall and was the ef- fort ofthe Telephone Registration Committee. Members of the committee were Vice President for Administra- tion Jim Howard, chair, Dr Charles Prigmore, vice presi- dent for academic affairs fretiredjg Dr. Al Williams, academic dean, Larry Hogan, director of computing and telecommunications, Noel Smith, director of admissions and recordsg and Jocelyn Payne, assistant to the vice president for administration. "Our interest in a telephone registration system was just one in a continuing series of projects for the con- venience of our students," Howard said. "We tried to find ways to cut corners and speed up processes for students. Because so many of our students lived off- campus and had jobs or family responsibilities we thought telephone registration would be a major im- provementfy Williams said students were not the only people who would be helped by the system. "The obvious benefit was to the student but the less-than-obvious benefit was the amount of information that could be obtained by us- ing the system," Williams said. "lt assisted us in plan- ning and made it easier for academic personnel to check closed classes. Telephone registration en- couraged students to get degree plans on file earlier, It also allowed us to better advise students." Payne said one advantage of the new system was few- er people standing in registration lines. "lt helped stu- dents to avoid the congestion of registration," she said. "Students were able to register by telephone and pay fees by mail without making a trip to Tahlequah, which proved to be of real benefit to commuter students." Ac- cording to Payne, another plus was the extended regis- tration hours afforded by using the telephone system. "lt allowed greater flexibility for our students," said Payne. Programming the system was the work of the Univer- sity's Computer Center and an implementation team. Members of the team were Payne, chair, Williams, Ho- gan, Smith and Jane Hensley, associate registrar. Our telephone registration equipment was manufactured by Computer Communications Specialists, Inc. Hogan said. Our university was one of only three using this type of equipment. "We chose this company because they were taking advantage of major technological breakthroughs which allowed them to offer this service at a lower price than previously available," said Hogan. He said the equip- ment allowed students to "talk" to our mainframe com- puter. The equipment was able to communicate with the mainframe in computer language and to students using a digitized human voice. Because our university used the system in such a greatly expanded way, the Computer Center had to de- velop all the software necessary to its operation. "No- where else in the world did this software exist," said Hogan. "lt was a first for this type of equipment." In layman's terms it was a speech development system which served as an interpreter between our computer and the student using a Touch-Tone telephone. Basi- cally this unit took the place ofa computer terminal and the human operator. lt put a terminal in everybody's house. Academics 58 Q Studious Weekenders Most students looked forward to weekends as a time to let their hair down and escape the grinding rigors of books and lectures. But for some, weekends meant a return to class fol- lowing a week of work and family responsi- bilities. Under the weekend college program which began in January, a student could get a degree on the weekends while working a full-time job during the week. "Many people work all day and had a difficult time attending day or even- ing classes. The addition to our course offer- ings met their special needs," said Dr. Jeanie Wyly, director of the Weekend College. - Because of the enthusiastic response, class offerings were doubled for summer and tri- pled for the upcoming fall semester. The in- tensity of the concentrated sessions kept class size limited to 20. Average age of the weekend student was 28, with 81.8 percent of the enrollment ranging be- tween 25-49. Females dominated the enroll- ment, claiming 64.2 percent of the total numbers. Demand was greatest for courses in educa- tion and business. Classes met alternate weekends on Friday evenings from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 5:20 p.m. Sallisaw junior Belinda Scoggins felt it was perfect for her needs. 'Tm married, work full- time and have a family. With classes every other weekend, that gave me plenty of time to make arrangements for my family and still gave me a way to complete my education." So, while most were making plans for a weekend bash or a day on the river, some non- traditional students found returning to the classroom on weekends a perfect way to ac- commodate job, family and educational goals. ? ww sagem, ws.-ggayx-reaia.rs5sa,.l wggyyaggft 5-Qewa A eevrftfgearge-seweragewas-Y ,-ia?-tiftwes.-E I 2- 1 - Q- J A st XSD- t t ' i Y . t, , 'a lf 5 af is asm Qi -1-af 5 gt, r .

In a campus press-release, Dr. Tom Cottrill, chair- man ofthe Arts and Letters Division, described the dra- ma department as, "One of the most active, visible and energetic departments on campus." The River City Players, our summer theatre group, was a perfect example. In celebration of their fifth sum- mer at the University Playhouse, the River City Play- ers introduced a new summer extravaganza "The River City Radio Show." The show was a step back in time and proved to be one of the best shows ever. Students, tourists and residents in Green Country agreed that it was the best entertainment around last summer. Productions were regularly scheduled during the fall and spring semesters to provide students with well rounded hands-on involvement and experience. The fre- quency and quality of the productions, along with ex- cellent staffing, the University Playhouse tsomeplace to call their ownl, and the size of this campus contribut- ed and provided students with a source for immediate gratification and feedback from peers and community alike. Productions have also been 'on tour' In the academic world of theatre, to tour is ' participate with other scholastic non-professionals! Productions competed in two categories for an "Irene Ryan Scholarship." Irene Ryan a.k.a. 'Granny' of the old "Beverly Hill- billys" television show, left an endowment in a scholar- ship trust, awarded annually for outstanding productions and individuals on a regional level. Productions and in- dividuals must first be invited by their state to compete for this prestigious award. This is where all the study- ing, the absorbing and recalling is utilized. The Oklahoma Theatre Festival board, chaired by Charles Seat, assistant professor of speech and dra- mag provided the forum last fall for state schools to tour their productions. The board consisted of professional guests from around the country, and no one knew who would be watching their performance. The last time a production was invited to perform at the regional level was in 1985. Our drama students had the most outstand- ing production at the regionals and were invited to per- form at the national level with "The Miracle Worker." It did not win nationally, but had a very high placing. The state individual and team forum is also sponsored by OTA during the spring. Every year students were sent with hopes for an invitation to participate regionally, then on to the nationals for top honors. February of '88 saw quite a few drama students at the Festival. No one was invited to the regionals this year but some did get no- ticed. Spring of '87 saw Chris Harrod invited to partici- pate at the regionals. Theatre productions were open to anyone willing to try-out and work hard. For many of the students involved the reward was simply the chance to participate in such a notable program. Our drama department certainly deserved an encore for their performances and dedi- cation. 'I Beverly Quinton. 4? Touring production companies often provide the opportunity for dra- ma students to see professionals at work. Boasting five "Tony Awards," including "Best Musical," the Broadway hit "The Music Man" came to campus and delighted audiences with its bouncing rhthyms and excit- ing sounds. Though our students did not participate inthe performance many took advantage of the chance to observed what it took to be part of a traveling production company. iPhoto Servicesj X...

After a short training session on the new system many students equated its simplicity to a first-grade reader. The computerized system encompassed a method of using bar codes on library books to be checked in or out and eliminate card catalogs. Nine days prior to the start of the fall semester tech- nical service director Georgene Timko and 30 others began bar coding 122,300 of the books in the library. "Attitudes made a big difference in a job like that and we had a very enthusiastic group," Timko said, "lt didn't take us nearly as long as we had anticipated." information on availability of books in the library ap- peared on the computer screen. The system also kept a record showing if a book had been checked out and gave the date it was due to return. information could be looked up by author, title, subject or key word search. "You could get all your references at one sitting which made it very nice," graduate student Jeri Merkely said. Anyone interested could be oriented on the use of SPOT by faculty and staff. Students found the system easier-and more organized than the card catalog. "It was great, it helped you to find the information you were looking for and you didn't have to dig through the card catalog," commented sophomore Billy Beets, Jr. Prauttus Samuel, freshman, said "lt was the easi- est way to find the books you needed." The system took getting used to, not only by students but for faculty and staff as well. "The Computer Center Maintenance Department was an incredible amount of help," said Dr. Richard Maudus, library dean. "The library wasn't origi- nally designed for this type of computerization. The maintenance crew had to string miles of wire so we could house the system." ' It was soon realized that SPOT was an information warehouse and most people wondered how they ever got along without it. It took some extra time to learn how to use the system, but in contrast to the time it saved as a result there was no comparison. For many on cam- pus it became a necessity instead of a luxury.

Most college students specialized in a particular academic area while attending college. Major areas such as math and business prescribed specific and elective courses within a single department. But for stu- dents majoring in criminal justice, it meant broadening their learning and expanding their course load into a diversity of fields. Criminal justice has become more of an eclectic dis- cipline than just a course of study. "To obtain a degree in criminal justice the student must have working knowledge in a number of areas. The application was what makes it such a discipline," said Charles Dreveskracht, assistant professor of criminal justice. Criminal justice used psychology, sociology and philosophy to assist in reasoning and deduction con- cerning evidence, applied public administration and re- lations programs to organize an effective force and build community and inner relations. It also utilized medical background courses and natural sciences to determine information from factors in nature. Political science, mathematics and ethics also played major roles in the education for a degree in criminal justice. "We had to have an all-around knowledge because we do much more than just arrest people. It made it a little more difficult, but it's worth it," said Harley Seabolt. The program was initiated for much more than train- ing students in duties of general police work. The course objective was to raise the professional standards of the entire law enforcement structure of the United States by training interested students. "Our studies were pretty in-depth. We were taught everything from the history of criminal justice to the future of criminal justice. It's strict and very exciting," said John Brasuel. At the end of the 1970 fall semester, our university became one of the participating institutions in the Law Enforcement Education Program authorized by the Om- nibus Crime Control and Safe Street Act. The grant al- 64 lowed a limited number of law enforcement officials and interested college students to enroll in sociology classes directly related to law enforcement. In 1971, police science became a separate major from the sociology department. The criminal justice depart- ment opened with 20 majors and today more than 250 students have declared criminal justice as their major with more than 40 percent being women. "l've always wanted to work in corrections," said Melissa Miller. "lt's an exciting career. Women's roles in criminal justice have grown. We don't have to just sit at a desk and type." The program grew from a basic law enforcement em- phasis to an expanded emphasis in paralegalism and a master's program in law enforcement. A person trained in paralegal studies can work in law firms as a research assistant and perform many tasks of law procedures which have traditionally been han- dled by lawyers. Legal assistant education trained stu- dents for gathering and analyzing facts for court cases, handling preparation for court proceedings and other functions in assisting lawyers. "I've always liked secretarial work and researching law and cases. I don't think I can be a lawyer, but I want to work along side of one," Catherine Tate said. Students graduating from the criminal justice program can be employed in city, state and federal policing agen- cies in law enforcement and administration. They can also continue their education and acquire a law degree at an accredited university. A degree in botanical sciences provided students knowledge of flora, an accounting degree gave students foundations in bookkeeping, and English majors could write, but criminal justice students learned more than just arresting techniques. They became knowledgea- ble in a wide range of areas to better understand the environment of criminal justice. 'I Darryl Thomas The first Indian University in the United States as it appeared mid- way through the long process of renovation. Though it will take longer members of the Native American Student Association plan to cut cost considerably by doing much of the work themselves. iPhoto - Paula Hoodj According to junior James Maupin, the study of law is definitely tedious and time consuming, but will someday be well worth the effort. Maupin spends much of his time surrounded by law books, living upto the reputation that earned him a spot on this year's list of Who's Who among American College Students. iPhoto Servlcesj M s, , if ' ' ' 5 fi 0 W t Q Indian University The first Indian university in the United States, a two-story brick building in Tahlequah, already had a rich and colorful past. The structures acquisition last December by our university assured it would have an equally rich and colorful future as a center for Native American students. "The building had tremendous significance to Indian education and will remind us of the Indian people's concern for culture and edu- cation," said President Roger Webb. Indian University was founded Feb. 9, 1880, by Almon C. Bacone, a missionary from Rochester, N.Y., who moved to Indian Terri- tory in 1878 to teach at the Cherokee Male Seminary in Tahlequah. By the end of 1880, 53 students were attend- ing the school. To ease the overcrowding, Ba- cone moved Indian University to Muskogee in 1885. Native Americans were understandably ex- cited about the acquisition of the building, since their organization would operate and maintain the facility. The building would be open to all Native Americans on campus. There were also plans to use the building for seminars and lectures. Tutorial services for Native Americans stu- dents at all grade levels would also be offered. The building represented a "dream come true" for Native Americans. They had talked about having a place of their own for years but had never had their own building on campus until now. Finally they have a gathering place where they can feel at home.

A Am, Avggimgg College students were assesed on their knowledge by a test of not-so-common topics complied by a local television news reporter. Kowledge comes from a past experience, practi- cal skill or direct perception. Common is familiarity through appearance or action. Thus common knowledge, for most, would be familiarity with items like the days of the week, the months of the year or the num- ber of states in the United States. Scott Thompson, special reporter for KJRH Channel 2 in Tulsa, delivered the test and examined what he called "higher education's common knowledge." Stu- dents were tested in areas of personalities, history, ge- ography and politics. Last November 145 students from Oklahoma State University, University of Oklahoma, University of Tulsa and Tulsa Junior Colleges partici- pated in the initial examination. The results, when aired, brought responses of amaze- ment, disappointment and laughter across the state. The answers to the history and geography questions re- quired definitive answers with no room for discretion. State capitols were hard to remember, especially when they were far from Oklahoma. Washington D.C. is not the capitol of the state of Washington. Our nation is young according to the student who dated the signing of the constitution as 1987. identifications on personal- ities were even more difficult as many were noted for the exploits prior to the 1960s. The Hoover vacuum cleaner was not invented by J. Edgar Hoover, nor was he the 28th president of the United States. "I watched the results all four nights and I couldn't believe that students did so poorly," said Mike Evans, Northeastern sophomore. "The response was immediate," Thompson said, Hbecause the next day l received visits and calls from individuals and schools wanting to take the test." North- eastern students wrote to Thompson to acquire the test and compare their knowledge against other university students. ln response to the inquiries, a testing of our campus was initiated. Two percent of the on-campus population took part in the examination. Our students were convinced that they outranked others but after the results were tallied they found them- selves ranking at about the same level as the initial stu- dents who took the test. "lt was not what I thought it would be like," said Kevin Melody. "I thought l would breeze through with no problem, but it was kind of difficult." Timeliness played a key role in the test. Most of the questions pertained to the pre-1970s, whereas more than half of the students tested were 21 years of age and under. Students tested well on the personality ques- tions as 65 percent of them knew more than half of the personalities listed. More than 75 percent of the stu- dents knew who James Dean, Ben Franklin, Hank Wil- liams and Stephen Spielberg were. But a local high school was not named after Frank Lloyd Wright, nor was he the brother of Orville Wright and James Watt did not Academics 66 invent the light bulb. "The identification was easy compared to the rest of the test," Stephen Burton said. "On the history and ge- ography you had a right and wrong answer. There was no room for in-betweensf' While 52 percent of the students correctly answered the history questions only 39 percent recognized any of the geography problems. The trouble stemmed from identification of the state capitols and dating of the wars such as the Civil War, World War I and ll which showed 44 percent correctly responding. Students did better on the political questions as 55 percent answered all the questions and 60 percent had the correct answer. But for the record, Al Pacino was not the secretary of defense, David Boren is a U.S. se- nator, not the current governor of Oklahoma and the total number of U.S. representative was 438 not 759 or "three for each state except Hawaii and Alaska where they only receive two." "The test made me think," freshman Brian Johnson said. "I think they should call it something besides com- mon knowledge. lt was anything but common." Northeastern students answered 58 percent of the questions correctly, whereas the initial students tested averaged 50 percent correct. The last section of the test had students identify state locations on a map. The origi- nal students averaged 37 percent correct while our stu- dents averaged 77 percent. Northeastern's involvement in the test prompted Thompson and KJRH to come to the campus to see how students faired on the test. A news team visited the university to report our involvement. They said in response to the wide interest, a sequel to the test would be aired. "The test was fair Those were questions that students in higher education should be able to answer," Paul Dameron said. lf students were able to make up a test of common knowledge, by its definition, the questions would read: identify Ronald Reagan? who won the Super Bowl? or how far can drive your car while on empty? These would be questions students could surely answer. To base college students acquisitions and retention of common knowledge on a Trivial Pursuit game may not be valid for testing the higher education system in Oklahoma. lf testing the system was the objective, then perhaps the test shouId've been divided into major areas of study more directly related to people's lifestyles. An army may examine its marching members in a pa- rade for cohesion, consistency and common appear- ance. College students however seem to march to the beat of their own drums and unconformity should be expected. "Obviously what is common to one is not common to all," Dr. David Timmons, assistant profes- sor of journalism said.

The Division of Natural Science was designed and continually updated to provide a hands-on experience for students. The main objective was to demonstrate and promote knowledge of, and appreciation for, the fun- damental Iaws of the universe. Many instructors used lab time outside of the classroom and provided students with the opportunity to observe nature from a realistic Vl9W. "Birding" was defined as the sport of watching, listen- ing and marveling at the colors, shapes, sounds and antics of birds. This was one of many activities the science department had to offer students. The Se- quoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Vian was one area where Dr Everett Grigsby took his students to increase their ability to identify different species. Junior Angela Stovall commented, "Anyone who has had a class with Dr. Grigsby knew that it was a big experience. He ex- pected a great deal from each of his students, but at the end of the semester it felt good to look back and realize how much l had learned." Grigsby's students also visited a bat cave in Spavinaw near Jay, where they were also oriented on elk, deer and water fowl. "It gave students a different perspec- tive when they visited different places," said Grigsby. Dr. James Schooley took his students on a marine biology field trip to the Gulf of Mexico in Ocean Springs, Mississippi and then on to New Orleans to visit the zoo in Audubon Park. This trip was six days long, the cost was 3170.00 per student, and was not limited to science Water temperature in September makes for a cilling experience. Af- ter wading through the river, students arrived at a cave designated spe- cifically for the mating of bats. Public Spelunking was not permitted, but student access was allowed for educational purposes only. iPhoto - Angela Stovalll 68 students only. Participants increased their knowledge of fishery and wildlife. "That trip gave us the opportu- nity to apply what we had learned in the class," said senior Ftita Thomas. Schooley also took science students on a seven day trip to the "Black Mesa" in western Oklahoma, where they studied and observed the ecology of the areas animal life and vegetation. Several camping trips were taken to the Southeast corner of Oklahoma. Some expeditions traveled south to Texas and Louisiana, where students visited a processing plant, beaches and a regional aquaria. Stu- dents favored this area because ofthe unique fish they identified and measured. ln an effon to increase botany students' ability to iden- tify trees and learn about plant ecology, Dr. Donna Smith took them to the Sparrowhawk Mountains in the Qui- achita Nature Forest. Approximately twenty students took part in the nature hike. They obsenled plant and soil composition, erosion patterns and succession. "The students have seen trees, but have never really thought about them," Smith said. The Science department offered these field trips in an effort to increase development of scientific approach and a better understanding of natural phenomena. Many students took advantage of these opportunities and gained an appreciation of nature from a scientific point of view.

How they spent leisure time was something few students considered. It may not have been evident to the thousands of students who passed through these portals that their professors had interests other than the curriculums at hand. Their outside endeavors were as diverse as the instructors themselves and these examples barely scratch the surface. Jim King, assistant professor of drafting and design technology, sought experiences in the underwater world of diving. From recreational scuba diving to professional 400-foot bell saturation dives off the coast of Venezue- la, he experienced many challenges. "I wanted to get a picture ofa shark coming face on. l spotted one hid- ing in a reef so I reached in and pulled his tail. lt was six feet long!" said King. Coordinator of Veterans Affairs Jake Chanate is a Ki- owa lndian storyteller who gave younger generations a chance to hear of their cultural roots. Nearly all of Chanate's tales were centered around a trickster called "Saynday," an awkward and mischievious Indian who is used to explain such things as why birds fly. The proud spirit of his culture lived through his tales. Chanate traveled around the country speaking to au- diences of all ages, telling them the stories he learned as a child at the knees of his late grandfather. Restoring a 1929 Model "A" Ford that won many awards, including the National Ftod Association's "best engineered" category in 1976, was one of assistant professor of journalism Byron Evers favorite accomplish- ments. "lt was fun cruising down the highway at 65 m.p.h. in a restored antique car. But you had to look out for the other guy. People would stare at the car and First impressions are not always accurate. One would have never ex- pected that Professor Jim King, a rather reserved man, was a scuba diver for a metropolitan police force. According to King, drastic changes in diving equipment simplified underwater tasks. The old suit was heavy and cumbersome, but the design ofthe new suit greatly improved mo- bility. iPhoto - Mike Allenl Academics 70 forget that they were driving too," said Evers. Nlla Phipps, assistant director of the Living Literature Center enjoyed traveling. Though most of her trips were connected with the center, she often felt as if she were on vacation. Her travels led her to such places as the United Kingdom, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Mexico and France, as well as many parts of the U.S. "Of all the places l have visited my favorite was London," said Phipps. During her travels she utilized her skills in pho- tography to compile a large portfolio of the places she had been. Katharyn Mazon, assistant professor of education in psychology, relaxes while doing stained-glass artwork with her husband. "l'm not much different out of class than I am in class. I often used family experiences as examples in my classes and that lets me get on a more personal level with the students," said Mazon. Assistant professor of speech and drama James Ma- lone was a master in the art of puppetry. He has taught a small puppetry class and utilized his skill in other classes as well. Using his puppets, some of which were obtained while visiting Europe, he orchestrated shows at libraries, birthday parties and malls. "Puppetry is an invigorating experience. There's never a dull moment," remarked Malone. Preconceptions were easily formed about instructors. Students often failed to consider that faculty members had other interests. Professors were believed by some students to live only to cause grief, when in reality the academic world of education was only part of their lives. 5 Benny Vanschuyver K' ' ':.f. .l."f r"' - I I ,ww X krrr ye mt.-,.ea+,3a ' H 4 il!aL?WV - 1 vw ' z.. . i ' ,e .,,... .. . . ..,, '-yfkifr' .. .4 l, W . ,,. , , g M Q izfaafwvfww -ff if matt -'-' aw' X5 .. ,t ..

Faculty members tried to create a positive and stimulating atmosphere to com- fort the nerves of jittery students who might otherwise have been reluctant to make an office visit. Space was not wasted and many instruc- tors began by personalizing their office doors. Professor of biology Dr. Gary Wickham recognized the need to present a relaxing at- mosphere for himself and his students. 'iStu- dents needed to feel comfortable when they came for a visit. I exposed a part of myself through my collection of cartoons and hoped that would encourage students to do the same." he said. The door that led to the office of psycholo- gy professor Dr. Lee Quiett displayed a vari- ety of personal mementos. Among his door decorations were two items that almost always evoked a curious expression: a wooden cross and a large clove of garlic. When asked why he displayed two such unusual objects. Quiett, who included a segment on "Psychology of the Supernatural" in one of his courses. responded with. "You don't see any vampires or Werewolves do you?" That always warranted a hearty chuckle and accomplished the intend- ed purpose of helping students feel at ease. Many instructors utilized doors to convey specific messages and most were satisfied with the results. Major L. McClure, Ed.D., education Robert A. McQuitty, Ph.D., English Thomas A.

On his office walls, Dr. Harold Aldridge, associate professor of psychology, posted words of wisdom by var- ious authors that touched his life in one way or the other. In addition there were newspaper clippings and pho- tographs of friends, relatives and his other interests. Not only was he an educator, he was an author, an activist and a speaker of his beliefs. Having come from a household where both parents were teachers, it appeared natural for him to plan a career in the same field. But Aldridge was discouraged from pursuing that particular direction right away be- cause of problems in teaching that his parents regu- larly discussed. Alter graduating from Drake University, Aldridge had planned a career as a dentist. Instead he worked as a referee at professional basketball games while, in his own words he "...bummed around a bit." In the '6Os, Aldridge lived in San Francisco and was involved with activist organizations that promoted black unity and the immediacy of Black American rights. "I saw people get blown away for their beliefs. I asked myself many times if I was willing to die for what the world was not ready for. I felt what black people need- ed most was stronger education." As the Vietnam con- flict escalated, he decided to defer to teaching. AIdridge's first teaching position was in biology at Memorial High School in Tulsa. The job became tedi- ous and he decided to try a different approach. If that didn't work, he felt he must consider finding something else to do. Aldridge said that when he was in school he wanted to understand and feel the subject, so he had to study more. He decided to use that concept with his students. "If I didn't feel it, I wouIdn't teach it. I hoped people would ask questions so I could help them understand." He faced his classes the next day with a relaxed at- Findlng a moment to relax is unusual for Dr Harold Aldridge. Between his busy schedule on campus and his many other interests, to see him "just sitting" was a rare occassion. tPhoto - The Northeasternj 72 titude. The students enjoyed him and he enjoyed the students. "I knew I was trying too hard. When I tried a different approach, it fit and has stayed interesting." Aldridge attended Northeastern in the late '60s where he earned his master's degree in education and was later hired. He felt his varied experiences gave him a positive attitude towards personal expression and teaching. Dr. Aldridge was a guest speaker on the nationally syndicated show, "Tony Brown's Journal," a forum for the discussion of issues that affected minorities either directly or indirectly. He spoke to Brown about his research paper entitled, "The Birth of a Nation, The Rocky Series, and the Color Purple Wasn't Enough...". His paper dealt with information he gathered about mo- vies that depicted blacks in a negative way. "I wrote the paper for my benefit and I needed to share it with others. I wanted to help provide cool, dark shades for those left in the glaring sun. To help pro- mote a realistic image instead of the well-known caricatures." Although Aldridge presented very strong ideas, his person-to-person easygoing attitude said, "Hey, l'm a person, you're a person, and we are in this together." The lessons he learned from experience were the same lessons he presented in letters to the "Black Men of Means," which summed up his observation: "You can if you will! You have done it in the past, but we need you today! However, you must get up off your rusty dusty. Get into the mix. Come all the way, live and go for the throw down." Dr. Aldridge was consistently considered one of the favorite instructors around campus because of his direct and honest approach to people and issues eventually affecting all of us and our future together as a people and a nation. Dr. Aldridge enjoys spending time with students outside of class as well as in class. Aldridge didn't just answer questions, but tried to inspire students to reason out answers for themselves, then gave them a hand if needed. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj 310 im...

Enthusiastic! These were but a few words that could be used to describe Dr. Lot- see Patterson. Patterson joined the faculty in January as associate professor of library media. On the road that brought her to our university she encountered many ob- stacles. By maintaining a positive attitude and humorous outlook on life there were none she was unable to overcome. Patterson graduated from the Oklahoma College for Women in 1959 and began her teaching career at Boone School in Apache, Okla. After teaching for sever- al years she enrolled in the educational technology pro- gram at the University of Oklahoma and graduated with a doctoral degree in 1979. Her career has spanned almost three decades and when asked how she felt about retiring she responded, "I don't think I ever will, I can't imagine not working. I really love my work and the rewards it brings of seeing former students doing well in their careers." A member of the Comanche tribe, Patterson was very involved in community and tribal affairs. One of the more interesting things she has worked on was the drafting of legislation which provided financial assistance for ln- dian tribal development of libraries on reservations. Her work in this area began when she was a member of the faculty at the University of New Mexico where she actually planned and developed a number of libraries in the Pueblos. "These libraries provided much need- ed access to information for people in remote areas," said Patterson. "I am a great proponent of libraries and have a spe- cial interest in aiding Native Americans. I think every- one wants to leave a legacy when they die and I look upon those libraries as my legacy, along with my chil- dren, of course." Patterson was one of five Native Americans who served on an advisory panel for the National Historical and Records Commission in Washington, D.C. She has also served in leadership positions for the American Library Association and the National Commission on Use of the computer makes storing and keeping track of records much eaiser, especially for educators who have so much paperwork to keep up with. Department head for Curriculum and Instruction Dr, Jim Wil- hite and Dr. Lotsee Patterson took advantage of new technology and worked on a program that would enable them to do even more on their computer than they were currently doing. iPhoto - Paula Hoodj 74 Libraries and information Science for which she par- ticipated in two House Conferences. Patterson, who has been divorced for many years, managed to raise five children as a single parent. All five have graduated from college. "I have never allowed my work to interfere with my family, and my family never interfered with my work," said Patterson. "I have worked at places for years and my co-workers never even knew I had children." "I would sometimes worry that I might be depriving them because I wasn't able to give them much of my time," she laughed, "but they assure me that they all had a great childhood, and I think they are pretty well- adjusted. I think any mother who works outside the home is going to feel a certain amount of guilt, but you can have the best of two worlds - as a professional and as a parent, however, the price you pay is a lot of worry and a lot of hard work." Patterson, who was task-oriented, found it difficult to relax. She found she could not participate in recrea- tional activities that many people enjoyed because she was usually bored, and she felt much better when she was accomplishing something. Patterson enjoys gardening and playing the piano, and had plans of learning how to play the guitar. Her favorite pastime ac- tivities were painting and reading, of course. What else would you expect from a "proponent of libraries?" Patterson felt the most important message she tried to convey to students was, "...that anyone can succeed if they have enough motivation." lt was unique that a woman of her experience and education expressed a desire to go to law school someday. She also thought a great deal about ways she could aid in taking libraries and education to Third World countries. These ideas are perfect examples of another message she stressed to students concerning the benefits of being diversified. Not only was this something she had done for herself, but continually encouraged students to do the same. Expanding one's horizons, that was her motto. 'n Paula Hood In class activities are only a small portion of the responsibilities that come with a teaching career Dr Lotsee Patterson was involved in several programs that worked forthe betterment of higher edu- cation. The Educational Research Committee was one example. Pat- terson and fellow members ofthe committee Dr. Tim Ficklin, Steve Siera, Gerald Boggs and Thomas Newton met to review and develop a survey instrument to be administered to alumni of the graduate education program. iPhoto - Mike Brownj Using hand puppets, as well as many other tools, to motivate young listeners is a skill Dr. Patterson encourages her students to develop.

Michael Sharp Q New Snack Bar According to Bob Patrick, director of the Physical Plant and Jerry Catron, director of Food Service, the University Center Snack Bar was scheduled to be closed for the entire summer term so renovation could get under way. After more than a year of planning, it looked as though university residents and employees would have the opportunity to enjoy a food service area similar to the one located in Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa. According to Patrick plans were being made for Physical Plant employees to spend part of their summer demolishing everything in the snack bar area of the University Center basement. Current plans for the food service area include a hamburger shop, Mexican food, ice cream stand, salad bar, pizza shop and possibly a bakery. "The new food service area will pro- vide a larger variety and faster service for patronsf' said Catron. Each shop area will have individual kitchens and will utilize the same equip- ment that franchise restaurants use. The plan called for the new Snack Bar to be renovated in a first-class manner and was scheduled for completion by the beginning of the fall semester. EXP J . After many years of educating students a record number of faculty relinquished their classroom duties to explore other interests. Responding to attractive incentives offered by the Oklahoma Teacher's Retirement System, 18 faculty members chose December as the month they would retire. Combining their years as educators, they provided over four and a half centuries of service to our university. Those retiring at the close of the fall semester were Dr. James Avery Adams, professor of education, Dr. Ruth Arrington, professor of speechg Dr. George Clarke, professor of scienceg Dr. William H. Day, professor of management, Dr. Odie Faulk, professor of historyg Dr. Guy Friend, professor of educationg Dr. Don Herrlein, professor of guidance and counseling, Dr Austin Ketch- en professor of chemistryg Dr. Valgene Littlefield, profes- sor of speechg Dr. John C.

Oklahoma House Bill 1473, adopted by the state legis- lature last year, altered the guidelines for the teacher retirement system, 'lThe most significant change was the figures and percentages used to calculate retire- ment benefits," said Gary Alderson, director of per- sonnel. Gene Frusher, former chief of Campus Police, is now devoting more time to teaching scuba diving. Frusher, who helped develop the Crimi- nal Justice Department, planned to continue teaching part-time, iPhoto Servicesl Dr. JT. Sego releases the reins as chairman ofthe Business Division. His plans included devoting more time to his 120 acre horse ranch where his animals were bred and sold for racing purposes. tPhoto Servicesl 78 A further change was the provision that any active membqr of the program who retired during the period that began July 1 and continued through Jan. 1 was immediately eligible for the higher average salary cal- culations if they met contribution requirements. Both teacher contribution and subsequent benefits of the retirement system were calculated on a percen- tage basis. Those who had taught longer, had a higher average salary and paid higher contributions were en- titled to higher benefits after retirement. Before July 1 the maximum average salary used to figure retirement benefits was 325,000 The new legis- lation allowed a member to increase contributions to 10 percent of his salary if it ranged between 325,000 and 540,000 annually. Of our university's 250 faculty members, 65 were eligi- ble to retire under the new guidelines. Had all the eligi- ble faculty elected to retire we would have lost one-fourth of our instructional staff. Though we lost only 18 faculty members, the initial concern was not unjustified. The task of replacing instructors midterm proved to be difficult. The loss was felt throughout the campus. Not only did it put pressure on administrators and re- maining faculty to take up the slack, but it also had a great impact on students who relied on the experience and knowledge of these professionals. 'I Paula Hood Both Drs. Tracy and Catherine Norwood chose to retire this De- cember. Having left the teaching profession, neither intended to be inactive.

We We ,. .ri 5 .1-. iiii ., A t.. ln keeping with an age-old tradition thirteen of our peers were chosen to be added to the list of Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. A concept originated by H. Pettus Randall was Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Ran- dall's main premise for the establishment of this award was to recognize the academic and social accomplish- ments of noteworthy students. Randall was an undergraduate student at the Univer- sity of Alabama in 1934 where he was recognized by several organizations and honor societies. Since he came from a poor farming community during the depression, to have accepted those awards would have meant paying membership dues as well as initiation fees, which would have put a strain on his already bur- dened finances. After discussing his inability to pay for recognition with a faculty member, Randall conceived the idea for the Who's Who award and was encouraged to pursue it while still at his alma mater. Who's Who Among Students In American Colleges and Universities was an award instigated in 1935 by Randall and continued as a testimonial to this man's dedication and his work to make an idea a reality. ln keeping with this tradition, 13 candidates from our university were selected by student leaders and facultylstaff members for consideration of entry in the 1988 edition of Who's Who. Selections were as follows: James Eric Maupin, Bartlesvilleg Kristy Shoemake, Checotahg Steve Wayne Kinion, Clevelandg Vicki Lynn Coffman, Heavenerg April Christine Murelio and James Pilant, Locust Grove, Todd Randall Martin and Patricia Jean McAlpine, McAlesterg Melissa Anne Burtong Ski- atookg Mysti Dawn Evans, Stroudg Mary Beth deSteiguer and Terry G. Williams, Tahlequahg and Kathy Larrimore, Westville. Who were posssible candidates and by what criteria were they selected? According to Who's Who staff mem- ber. and historian, Claude Duncan, they are those "...who seemed contented with themselves, accepted their purpose in life, were unafraid to either criticize or tolerate and wise enough to know which was appropri- ate, unafraid to make mistakes, resilient in defeat and forgave themselves and who feel a responsibility toward others. It was these individuals who we were inclined to look upon as leaders." "Anyone who felt they were qualified could have sub- mitted an application for considerationf' said Suzanne Myers, coordinator of student activities. Notices were placed in The Nonheastern and applications were made available at various locations around campus. Four stu- dents and five facultylstaff members reviewed and evalu- ated the applications according to the applicable criteria. Each application was then voted upon and those who had the most votes were sent to Who's Who for publication. A good grade point average was important but also judged was the student's involvement in extracurricu- lar activities, i.e. leadership and participation with peers and with student organizationsg activities with commu- nity programs and volunteer organizations. "lt's a great feeling and very advantageous to have a high GPA and I feel strongly about striving for a good academic record. However, l feel that it was equally im- portant for achievements and activities along with com- munity involment by students to have been recognized," said Who's Who award recipient Misty Evans. lu Paula Hood .X ,, I gp! .TQ -4?

Many organizations broke records for membership and captured campus honors while others, including the Karate Club, OIL and the Debate Team, managed to gain statewide recognition for their accomplishments.

Many students joined an organization on campus to help them in their major area of study, such as the Fashion Association or the Industrial Arts Club. Others joined organizations like Northeastern Student Association or the Resident Hall Council to become active in the university. But for students in the Black Student Society, they joined a culture group to learn more about themselves and their heritage. Thriving on their motto "Unity. Pride. Progress." they came together to promote a mutual bond among blacks. In doing so the students discussed information that was vital to their welfare and self-image, created a cultural tool with which they learned more about their ancestral role in America and socialized within the group to better understand what each other needed and to help them accomplish their goals. Albert Haynes, High School and Collge Relations recruiter and adviser of the Black Student Society, quoted W.E.B. DuBois: "We spent our whole lives answer- ing false accusations. The Black Student Society tried to give a more positive feeling toward the black attitude." Membership in the Black Student Society was open to all students and faculty to help them understand and become aware of the ethnic students on campus. Although the organization was predominantly black, there was one non-black 84 member. "I joined the society to learn about different organizations on campus, but they were unlike any other They cared about one another and tried to help each othen" James Pilant said. "At first it was difficult being the only white person in the group. They tested to see how serious I was about joining. After they found out that I was serious they accepted me. The atmosphere was better than any other on campus, because they felt they could rely on each other." The society held many activities throughout the year to uphold its motto. A trib- ute to Martin Luther King, Jr. in January highlighted the year's activities. Voices of Praise sang in remembrance of King and student members read of his accom- plishments. The students also took an active part in Black History Month by show- casing their talents and teaching interested students black history. Also the performance "Halls of Ivory" was presented as a part of the month's activities. "In the end, we only have each other to turn to. We came together to get to know one another, to help one another, to recognize our goals and to increase our determination in accomplishing those goals and most of all to become friends," said Melissa McKinley.

The band was very active during the fall and spring semesters this year. Prac- tice began one week before classes started in August and their rigorous schedule didn't stop until May of the spring semester. Marching competitions on the col- lege level were few and far between, so the band didn't compete in marching abil- ities. They did, however, keep busy performing at various university activities and sporting events. Throughout the entire year they served as a service organization to the school and athletic department. The band attended every home football and basketball game. The band director, Ftob Bailey, was very proud of his students. "One half of our band were All-District Nine players and the other half were music majors," he said. The students were also very proud of their director. Mr. Bailey was a guest con- ductor at Poteau and also conducted the honor band of the northeast area. "He's a great person and would do anything for any member of the band," said Karen Williams, freshman. The spring semester proved to be the busiest time of the year for the band. "lt was quite time consuming, but it was worthwhile because the time invested and and hard work paid off," commented junior Susan Genatowski. Many events were hosted by the band. In February they served as hosts the Solo and Ensemble con- cert and later hosted the Eastern All-District Band. Another event was a concert band contest that was held on campus for two days in April. The band performed two concens during the spring semester in the Fine Arts Auditorium. Their second one on May 5 was their last performance of the year. The selections they chose to perform went over well and the appreciation of their efforts was evident by the response of the audience. Many of the students planned to return in the upcoming year. "I love band and I plan on staying with it through the rest of my college years, said Tami Ftade, fresh- man. All of the members agreed on one thingg being a member of the band requ- ried much hard work and demanded dedication. They remained loyal because of their love for music. Their practice paid off and there were many reasons to be proud. This group deserved to be recognized for their unfaltering dedication. lu Mitzy Sloan Drum Majors Feature Txvirler Baritones T '..t Q l t i . A a- ii or .df Don Fox.

The group ollered support and helped us remain strong in our laithf' - Terry Bush Beginning in 1972 with just a Few students, the Chapter continued to grow, boasting approximately 250 active members eaoh semester This organization represented a group of students who found, in Christ, a sense of meaning and direction. The purpose of CCF was to present the Gospel of Christ and help Christian students maintain and increase their faith. Being away from home and family life was a drastic change for most college students. CCF provided student families and support groups in addition to a sta- ble, home-like atmosphere for these students. Most CCF students felt that having these support groups on campus were vitally important in their adjustment to col- lege life. t'The organization couldn't take the place of the students' real families, but students came together and helped support each other," said the director of CCF Tom Tucker. The campus house served as a home away from home. It was a location where study and sharing groups were usually held. It was built five years ago as a stu- dent project. lt took a year and a half to complete, but when the project was finished it was debt free. CCF also has resident floors in campus dormitories. Many of the meetings were held in residence halls. The occupants enjoyed their time together on the CCF floors. "We were like a family. Just like sisters we argued and fought, but we always sat down and worked it out as a group," said freshmen Andrea Shel- ton. Every Monday there was a leadership meeting to go over the game plan for the week. A main ingredient was the informal atmosphere which allowed effective 'W-R. . Organizations 88 communication to take place. Activities were endless for CCF participants. Conferences and retreats were some of the many gatherings that took place during the year. The Leadership Training Conference, an annual activity, was held in Cincinnati, Ohio and 22 of our stu- dents attended. They studied peer counseling, management of time and money and how to lead small groups. A leadership retreat was held at Cookson Hills Chil- dren's Home to help members gain experience in leading student families. "I have been to two leadership retreats and both times we spent the weekend thinking of new activities and things we could do to learn more about God and his will for our lives," commented freshman Roxann Coffin. They also had a fall and spring retreat. In the fall they traveled to Lake Pomm de Treve north of Springfield, Mo. and in the spring they went to Keystone Lake at Mannford. Mission projects were also annual activities. A little extra effort was needed to participate in these, but all those who shared in these activities felt it was really worthwhile. "CCF helped me grow in my Christian walk. l'm glad there was a Chris- tian organization on campus that I could be involved in away from home," said Kim Cruce, junior. CCF was here to help students face decisions and learn how to cope with the pressures of student life.

V llealh Tvliller Cheerleaders on the collegiate level finally received the recognition they deserved as they tools their place ia the World of competitive sports. Students attended football and basketball games and watched with amaze- ment as the tight end ran 50 yards for a touchdown, or the forward made a steal and dunked the ball. These feats took long hours of practice to perfect. On the sidelines, plays were being executed to perfection by our cheerleaders as they rallied Redmen fans and kept the crowd enthused. Executing to perfection meant doing an act skillfully and without fault. The green and white squads practiced on tumbles, cheers and dances to keep the crowd interested during the game and at halftime. "The most difficult part of cheerleading was the practice of learning," said fresh- man cheerleader Julie Ward. t'Techniques and moves always changed and we had to practice many hours to keep up with them." Cheerleading among colleges moved up the ranks to national competitive events where teams vied to be the best. This coverage gave collegiate cheerleaders the attention they deserved as being involved in a competitive sport, 'tOf course it was a sport," said third year cheerleader Heath Miller. "lt was a combination of aerobics, gymnastics and weightlifting. It kept me fit and it was a lot more fun being with girls than being in a room with a bunch of sweaty guys." Cheerleading moved from a strictly female sport to a very active sport for men. "When I first started l thought everyone was going to say l was weird," said Brian Holmes. "I played football and being a cheerleader required just as much strength, balance and coordination as other sports if not more." Becoming a cheerleader wasn't as easy as just enrollment in the class. Tryouts were held in the spring. Those chosen attended mandatory practices twice a weel- ln the summer to polish their routines. Then when school began they had pract tice four days a week to continue improving their skills. 1 But there was more to cheerleading than just practice. Members of the squacl were required to maintain a full-time student status and keep a 3.0 grade poin average in classes. Those who tried out were judged on partner stunts, incorpora tion of gymnastics and tumbling with the routines and yells. The members were picked on an individual basis, but they performed stunts with other members 0 the squad. Leslie Brixey came to spring tryouts and competed in the week-long competition for the fall sports. "Cheerleading required commitment and dedica tion. We paid the price in sweat and time and received our rewards in applause,' she said. When a tight end crossed into the end zone for a touchdown or a forward slammeo the ball through the hoop, on the sidelines the cheerleaders were yelling out con gratulations and performing a pre-planned series of acrobatics in recognition o a player's feats. Cheerleaders no longer stood on the sidelines and yelled. They were entertainers, skillfully executing plays like team members on the field or the court.

They were the NSU Entertainers and the Extra-Specials. The purpose of these groups was to provide performing opportunities for talented stu- dents and to serve the university and community with concerts and musical en- tertainment for special events. The Extra-Specials, conducted by Miriam Gleghorn, performed throughout Green Country. There were nine women involved in this group. "The girls were wonder- ful and in a few years are going to be outstanding performers," commented Gleghorn. The NSU Entertainers also performed throughout Green Country for civic and school functions. This group included a wide range of talented young college students which performed vocal jazz and popular music. This organization provided one major concert each semester on campus and Organizations 92 frequently performed at banquets, luncheons, and smaller ensembles in addition to providing entertainment for special functions. They also traveled to area high schools in the spring semester to aid in recruiting efforts for the university. The group proved to be a tremendous aid in recruiting new students for the college. Auditions for the groups were held during the fall semester. Students were not required to be music majors or minors in order to participate and scholarships were available for those who were selected. Membership in the organizations was open only to students selected through auditions. The groups had a great time performing through the academic year and planned to expand their performances to accomodate more university activities. The ex- perience proved to be a great asset for students who were involved. 'u Mitzy sioan Entertainers John Tyson, Cheryl Kinion. C-reg Landburg.

A Bobbie ftkard This organization was made up of about 15 students who spent a great deal of time thinking about clothes. That was not so unusual. What was unusual was that they received college credit for part of that time, at least the part spent in the classroom. Members of the Fashion Association, who are students majoring or minoring in fashion merchandising, saw themselves as an educational organization to plan meetings, seminars and other activities that would prepare them for careers in the clothing industry. According to Janis Williams, instructor of home economics, the highlight of their year was an April trip to Dallas where they hobnobbed with professionals in the industry. They had arranged appointments with a variety of fashion businesses and some of the students had interviews with prospective employers. The Apparel Mart was held at the same time at the Dallas Market Center. ln addition to the other activities attended while in Dallas, the Industrial Trade Association for Women Executives in Fashion held a career day in which more than 1900 students from across the U.S. participated. lt was the largest of its kind in the field. A show by Fashion Group featured clothing designed by students from four Texas universities. A 51,000 scholarship was given to the award-winning fashion created by a participating student. "lt was a great opportunity for the students to see real pros at work. People their own ages were designing these clothes," said Williams. , M, ,l Members of the Fashion Association chose and prepare clothes the models will wear during the annual spring fashion show held during the week of Kaleidoscope. The show consisted of formal wean casual wear and sports wear and is a favorite Kaleidoscope event. tPhotos - Darryl Thomasl Organizations 94 "l was very impressed with their work. Attending this meeting was a great way for a student to get her foot in the door." A perennial Kaleidoscope favorite, the fashion show was also a hit this year. Planned and presented by the association, students gained experience in model- ing, choosing clothing, stage presence and public speaking. Around 600 students from 16 area high schools attended the event. Seniors Yolanda Lyday and junior Tanya Campbell agreed that the planning and hard work involved in pulling the show together was worth all the effort. "It's a lot of fun," said Janeil Jones, junior. "The fashion show is the highlight of the school year." On the local front, students received good practical experience by decorating the windows of The Ftage, a Tahlequah clothing store owned by Cindi Tucker. They also had guests peakers which included LaNell McCully owner of Goo- dies in Tahlequah. McCully told students about the decisions involved in opening a retail outlet and the various ways she had discovered to merchandise her can- dy, popcorn and crafts. She showed the students her gift ideas and ways to per- sonalize gifts to fit a student budget. The club also believed in service to others and demonstrated this by providing services for the elderly and underprivileged of Tahlequah. 4 avi i Mgsa , 'Q r '51- ii M iw f . if.

Qur university was recognized statewide for its outstanding academic programs such as the College of Optometry. In addition to this program another academic area that received national recognition was the department of tourism manage- ment. Our university was one of two in the nation with a four-year program in tourism management and the first academic program to be affiliated with professional or- ganizations in the tourism industry. The Professional Convention Management Association arose from a desire to increase the effectiveness of meetings and conventions through sound methods of management. The professional organization raised 2 million dollars to form a scholarship fund for students involved in tourism management. Tourism majors attended a PCMA convention in Nashville, Tenn. Two of the students who attend- ed the job fair at this convention received positions in the industry. Hotel Sales and Management Association was involved in learning about the vital aspects of sales and marketing in the industry. Its basic purpose was to in- crease the knowledge and upgrade the professionalism of those engaged in the sale and service of rooms, food and beverages. Membership in Meeting Planners International was available only to university students who were pursuing a bachelor's degree or a minor in tourism manage- ment. The members of MPI gained professional experience in the industry of meet- SMI IHS , - E59 at Organizations 96 ings and conventions. Chapters were developed in all three previously mentioned organizations. The university contacted other schools about starting student chapters in an effort to get them affiliated with the professional organizations. The tourism organizations at our university were the first student chapters to be recognized by the profes- sional organizations and the first inthe nation to be certified by such professional groups. Job opportunities were always available for graduates of our tourism program. A representative came to campus this spring to interview students for intern posi- tions at Harvey's, a Lake Tahoe resortlhotellcasino, another accomplishment that spoke highly of our program. "The job opportunities were what I loved most about my career choice. I know I will have a position in my field when I graduate," said junior Necia Wolfe. The tourism department at this university has received statewide acclaim. PCMA encouraged our university to add still more to our tourism education programming. "The organization was worth its weight in gold for tourism students because it reinforced the classroom teaching and gave the students a chance to interact with people in the industry and allowed them to experience what goes on in the field," said Penny Dodson, sponsor to these organizations. l l Members of the Tourism Management Club prepare their booth for the Kaleidoscope Karnival Kraze,on1 of the final events of the annual spring festival.

Our main goal was to offer a wide range ff of activities and to get as many students as possible involved." - Billy Beets llt This organization represented a group of students whose main concern vas providing a variety of activities in which students could loeconie involved This was a student organization that provided leadership skills for NAB mem- bers and produced student activities for everyone. Through involvement with NAB the students were offered an opportunity to meet people, help plan activities and have fun. "lt gave me a sense of involvement and belonging. lt was like a big fa- mily and I met a lot of people," said member Flio McGouran, freshman. There were nine different committees in NAB. Each committee was responsible for separate projects. They hosted dances, float trips, hayrides and tennis tourna- ments. They sponsored events like talent shows, open "mike" nights, and mini concerts. The committees also brought a variety of entertainment including a hyp- notist, magic shows and feature films. The Excursions Committee planned trips for the students to destinations like Steamboat Springs and Crested Butte, Colo. for skiing and Daytona Beach, Fla. for spring break fun in the sun. Cooperation Trips Unlimited supplied NAB a packet and they picked the trips they thought the students would enjoy and could afford. The NAB committees worked hard at preparing displays, refreshments, creating themes and producing their events. They were proud of their work and achieve- ments. "Most of our programming was quality," said Lynn Glad, NAB advisor who This Kaleidoscope participant aims with determination in a competitive game of Croquet. This competi- tion was but one of the events sponsored by the Northeastern Activities Board in conjunction with the Kaleido- scope Karnival Kraze. iPhoto - Mike Browni Organizations 100 joined the university staff in the spring. A leadership retreat was held on the Illinois Ftiver at Eagle Bluff Camp for NAB members. "Pan of NAB is leadership, cooperation, management, and just work- ing together," said NAB artist, Kevin lgert. The members got better acquainted with each other on the retreats in addition to gaining valuable learning experiences. Students who were not involved in the organization, but attended the activities sponsored or hosted by NAB, enjoyed the events. "l thought it was a great organi- zation because the social gatherings helped students get acquainted with other students and offered a positive alternative to the stereotypical college activities," said Monnie Smith, freshman. "lt's a place for students who want to get things done," commented junior Mimi DeWeese. Anyone could become involved in NAB by simply attending a meeting of the committeefsl that interested them. "NAB was going places. lf they get a lot of people who are willing to work and also make it fun and sociable it will go far," said Sheila Rogers, NAB director of special effects. The goal of NAB was to provide a wide range of activities for students to enjoy. They succeeded! 'U Mitzy Sloan it - . uf.: ' its 'smile "'- ' if V f ' -vfmmhktfi, it gym . Riga, .

For some, these classes were seen as easy credits so they took courses like beginning bowling or ballroom- western dance. "I wanted a class that would help me get back into shape and help me to stay that way. That's why I took karate," said Curtis Phillips. Karate had one of the lowest enrollments in the physical education department, but its students endured by maintaining methods of physical fitness that have ex- isted since the seventh century. Modern karate began after a Korean serviceman, Jhoon Rhee, completed his tour of duty. Fthee initiated what some considered to be a revolutionary concept in physical education: the study and promotion of Korean self-defense, Tae Kwon Do. FIhee's involvement in the martial arts had become nationwide and earned him the title of father of U.S. Tae Kwon Do. Tae Kwon Do, one of the oldest martial arts, originated more than 1,300 years ago with an exiled Buddhist monk. In his quest to spread the ideals of Buddhism, he learned a martial arts form of attack without weapons as a means of protec- tion. After reaching Korea he taught this unarmed defense to the peasants. One of the more important aspects of Tae Kwon Do training was learning hyungs, a series of attacking and defensive movements which follow a logical, predeter- mined sequence. Hyungs marked a graphic demonstration of the art of Tae Kwon Do that matched the level of 'development that students had acquired. As the stu- dent progressed the hyungs became more complex. They were designed to test students, call upon their resources and knowledge to perform the new form and thus increase development and discipline. "The hardest part of Tae Kwon Do was the amount of time spent learning each form. Each move was so exact, that perfection was the only answer," blue belt Kathy Wise said. Such discipline and determination pumped adrenaline into the heart of several karate students and earned them the nickname of the "Wild Bunch." The name came from Sam Packinpah's western film, starring William Holden, which depicts a group of five outlaws roaming the country at the turn of the century and taking over towns. The five stayed together and trusted each other. "As for the NSU Witd Bunch, the basic concept was if you rode with a man, Many competitions are held throughout the year in which members of the Wild Bunch Karate Club take part. Several members placed individually in various categories throughout the year and all agreed that many hours of practice and much determination made their victories possible. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasi Organizations 102 you stayed with a man. We started out small and slowly grew, but we haven't for- gotten the concern and the discipline for others involved," said Mike Murphy, Wild Bunch sponsor and second degree black belt. The team toured schools involved in open competition and vied for a ranking with schools such as Oklahoma State University and Central State University. They also sponsored a meet on campus April 9. The Wild Bunch, the biggest organiza- tion in the Kinney Karate Association, the fighting association in the Midwest, boasts 70 fighting members on the team. Bob Kinney started the group in 1968. Kinney, at 18 years of age, was the youn- gest black belt in Oklahoma. He earned his black belt promotion from Bhee. After being graduated from NSU, Kinney broke from Fthee and organized the Kinney Karate Association. The group began with a seven man class and has put 75 black belts through promotions including Murphy. "We learned the techniques the way they were meant to be learned. With good form and quickness, that's how we became the best. That's how we will remain the best," said Bon Gallegos. Although Tae Kwon Do started in the Far East, western involvement created an Americanized version, resulting in better fighting techniques and tougher promo- tion requirements. "Tae Kwon Do taught today was almost equal to the strict Goju form that I learned," Sammy Stanford, second degree Goju black belt said. "I wanted to take Tae Kwon Do to learn a new form of martial arts." Students of Tae Kwon Do were rewarded for mastery of hyungs by being promoted to higher belt levels. White belt was the beginning and upon learning new groups of hyungs, one-step combinations and sparring techniques, they moved up levels though white, gold, green, blue, brown and finally to black. In order to be promot- ed to black belt, the student must master the nine hyungs, have a good character and the right attitude, the capability of breaking three one-inch pine boards and the ability and willingness to teach the tenets of Tae Kwon Do to others. Every student found enjoyment within the physical education department. Bowling expanded into league play, tennis offered a new weekend activity, and individual fitness gave a new look at old sports, but for karate it built comradery from an an- cient art and used the body's full capacity to teach its discipline.

The greatest fear of a student over 25 was walking into a class and sitting there with 18-year-old students," said Dr. Jeanie Wyly, director of the Weekend College and sponsor of the Over "25" Association. "These were students who returned to school. They had different needs and responsibilities. They often felt out-of-place. lt helped for them to develop friendships with others who could stand by them and help them make the transition back to the classroom." According to Wyly, students coming back to school need that assurance and fellowship. The group was a vehicle to let them know there were many others who were also beginning a new venture at age 25 or older. This organization tried to reach these students and assist with their needs. The club began in 1985 as an offshoot of the orientation class for non-traditional students, lt maintained a membership of 20 students and was primarily concerned with its role as a networking organization to help members find others that they could feel comfortable with. The majority of members were commuters, so it was often hard to get them together. Because of this they most often meet at noon. They hosted many speak- ers from the university to explain various programs and answer questions about such things as financial aid, enrollment, health concerns and special programs like the Weekend College. Wyly said those involved found the association very satisfying. "Member Marty Elmore was in my graduate class. She had an interest in non-traditional students and had worked with a similar organization on another campus, so she was most helpful." While fund-raising activities would have been beneficial, most members simply did not have time for the added responsibilities beyond those of home and family. Even so, they had worthy goals. They arranged for a scholarship to be award- ed to a student over 25. "This was one area that was lacking on our campus. This award will be based on financial need, grade point average and activities. It will be awarded for the first time in the fall semester," said Wyly. Other activities included going to orientation to pique interest in the group and producing some printed materials that addressed adult campus concerns. They were also requesting a room where they could meet, study together and share information. These were their most immediate needs. As more non-traditional students re-enter the classroom, Wyly saw this organi- zation as a major force in helping them readjust to college life. Qver "25" Association Qussell C. doutherland.

We became acquainted with professionals who could help us in the future." - Jeff Koescer The only vision school in the state, our College of Optometry draws support and admiration from our students, our community and our state Qur College of Optometry was established in 1979. Several organizations for students in optometry have been organized since that time. Three of the more ac- tive optometry organizations on campus were Men in Optometry, Northeastern Op- tometric Student Association and Women in Optometry. MIO was a group offering informal membership open to any man attending the College of Optometry. its main goal was to provide fellowship and physical release through participation in athletic competition within the intramural athletics system. The presence of this organization for male optometry students was an invaluable tool used by many students to escape the high stress environment surrounding their field of study. NOSA was organized in 1981. lts specified purpose according to the NOSA con- stitution was "the develoment and promotion of the education of future optometrists. Members of NOSA were striving for attainment of the knowledge, skill and artistic abilities needed to provide the best optometric care possible." This student organization was involved in numerous activities and made major accomplishments. One such accomplishment was the announcement that the 1988 Fall Optometry Convention would be held in Tulsa. This announcement was the direct result of NOSA members involvement in the previous year's convention at which time they delivered a presentation as to why they felt the convention should be held in our state. Students considered this a major feat as they were compet- ing against New York City and San Francisco for this professional honor. WIO was developed by Debra Berzan, the first woman to complete the optome- try program. WIO gained support from other such pioneering women. lts original purpose was to provide support and camaraderie for this small group. With the increase in membership, WIO broadened its purpose to include raising funds for a scholarship given each spring to a female student in optometry. Women in Op- tometry became an organization that provided a social network for female optom- etry students and furthered the goals of their professional careers. Together the three served as a fair representation of the College of Optometry. Our university was very proud of the success of these student organizations. Stu- dents not only concentrated on their schoolwork, they made time for recreational activities, promoted the education program to benefit future optometrists and raised funds for scholarships. They were dedicated students who were continually involved in beneficial activities, not only for themselves but for the university as well.

There were a few organizations on campus that many students were unaware of, such as the Psychology Club, because of the small number of members. The Psychology Club was active during the year with different services and activities, but was not often in the public eye. The club consisted of three members and the purpose of their organization was to explore and enhance interests in the area of psychology. Some of the services and activities provided by this organization were guest speakers, field trips and special events. Every week the Psychology Club had speakers such as an acupuncturist, a psy- chic who talked about experiences she had encountered in parapsychology and professors from other universities who give presentations on campus. Their topics included hypnosis, dream interpretation, suicide and mental illness. The members took a field trip to Eastern State Medical Hospital. They toured the facilities and observed behavior on one particular ward. They also went to Chil- dren's Medical Center in Tulsa and worked on biofeedback machines. The club sponsored two foster children for Christmas and arranged to give gifts with the help of local organizations. They also held a bake sale to benefit head start children in Tahlequah. Membership in the organization was open to anyone. "lt's open to all majors, for anyone interested in the world of psychology," said President Bridget Truman. The Psychology Club's activities were helpful and informative. They were a small group who cared about others and accomplished many things during the year. Dsychology Club Carol Happy.

Mike Beck To uphold our universitys tradition of a top ranked DOTC program, each part of the system had to provide and maintain an outstanding performanc Keeping with the tradition of excellence, the university's Redman ROTC Com- pany upheld their spotless reputation once again. The Reserved Officer Training Corps worked to get members ready to go into active military duty. Many of its students have served in the National Guard or Army Reserves. Each student in the program went through the Military Science class- es, starting as an MS-1, learning what a soldier was taught in basic training, to an MS-4, where they went on to Advance Camp to prepare for evaluation before being commissioned into active duty. In the past three years Redman Company has been selected as the No. 1 school in the eight state region and when combined with the University of Arkansas, their base university, they ranked third in the nation. Last year eight out of 10 commis- sionees received active duty. From the eight commissionees six received regular Army commissions. Also inthe past three years four of the students ranked in the top 5 percent of the nation. t'Of all the opportunities I have taken advantage of as a cadet since I've been at the university I feel that it was my position as MS-3 TAC officer that was most rewarding," said tactical officer Jon Harrison, recipient of the George C. Marshall award for Outstanding ROTC cadet. "ln this position l was able to lead and teach other cadets while learning from them also. Being a good leader, learning all you can and having the ability to follow when necessary are the basic necessities that all officers must have." Continuing the tradition, senior Roger Quiett became the only Oklahoman to be selected as one of 52 members across the country in the Cadet Troop Leader- ship Training in lllisheim, West Germany. He served as a platoon leader with Com- pany C, 10th Helicopter Attack Battalion, fulfilling one of his childhood dreams of flying helicopters in the Army. "I had an adrenalin rush the whole time," Quiett said. "lt gave me an insight into what we could do and what the Russians could do." Also 2nd Lt. Ron Quiett, Distinguished Military Graduate of 1987 award recipient, now sewing active duty in Texas at Fort Bliss Army Base in El Paso, had the honor of escorting Miss Alaska in the Miss USA Pageant. "Teaching leadership qualities to cadets and having outstanding individuals within the corps were just two reasons this university has been named the top school in the region," said Harrison. The reason for the strength of the program, cited by many students, was the instructors. Through them the cadets made mistakes and worked to overcome them. They stood behind them providing knowledge and discipline. As the university excelled and expanded, it gave room for each part of the sys- tem to do the same and to add acclaim to the tradition. The ROTC program ex- pansion opportunities have arrived and the members intend to better their record.

We served as that channel." - Tracy Luper Gur university boasted the largest student senate in the state and they worked to make major changes that would benefit students. The Northeastern Student Association hit the ground running under the leader- ship of President James Pilant of Locust Grove and Senate Chairman Paul Dame- ron of Tahlequah. During the first few weeks of school, the student senate saw the realization of a project they had begun a month before: the visitation hours in dorm areas were extended. This project was basically run by Missy Burton who was senate student services chairwoman in 1986 and who served as attorney general for the 1987-88 student administration. NSA Vice President James Maupin, who served as finance committee chairman during the 1986-87 school year, also worked with Burton, meet- ing several times with Housing Director Arlan Hanson to encourage the extension. "Achieving such a major change was a good start for this year," said Vice Presi- dent Maupin. "We have a lot of very capable, intelligent people working this year- people who want to see things done-not just play political games. l'm excited about what we can accomplish." The NSA is a three-branch student government shaped after the United States government. It is made up of three branches: the executive, legislative and judi- cial. The judicial branch consists of a supreme court which was led this year by Chief Justice Glenn Coffee. The student government was designed by help meet the needs of students and work with student organizations. Some of the projects of the NSA besides visitation hours included working with homecoming activities, sponsoring a blood drive and working to get microwaves and vending machines in the dorms. The NSA also worked to help student organizations, both financially and by providing them with information about campus activities. To better their service, certain innovations were also made by both the legisla- tive branch and the executive branch in the area of communication. A public rela- tions committee was established in the senate and was chaired by Susan Cauthron. A communications officer was added to the executive branch. "I believe the ef- forts to improve communication with the student body were much needed," said Paula Linville, communications officer. "How can students really make good use of the senate if they aren't aware of what happens there?" she added. Among other projects, Linville wrote a weekly column for The Northeastern ex- plaining how the student association works. Cauthron and the public relations com- mittee were busy making signs and posters to publicize campus events and began a monthly award for facultylstaff members of the month. "Expanding the role of the student senate by adding the communications committee was one of the best changes we've made," said Senate Chairman Dameron. "lt is an excellent tool to help make senate activities public." President Pilant also felt the addition of new personnel benefitted his ability to meet the demands of the student association. "it's good to have a body of people who direct me and the endeavors of the student association," said Pilant. "This is the first time to my knowledge that a president has had a regular meeting cabi- net. lt's always wonderful to be disagreed with...people have called me a tyrant or a dictator...they wouldn't believe what really goes on in those cabinet meetings. I present an idea to my officers and often meet with 'No, James, it would work better this way...' " Besides working to benefit student life, the NSA provided an excellent learning experience for those students actually involved. For Senate Chariman Dameron, his new leadership position brought many beneficial lessons. "l've learned that working with people is ultimately more important than the paper and procedure," he said. "l've also learned being in a leadership position puts one up for constant evaluation...the verse in Proverbs that says a good name is better than great riches has a new meaning for me. If I were to give advice to student leaders, it would be to seek a good name," he added. For Kathleen Foster, student services chairwoman, plain old hard work is the answer to success. "Being chairwoman has taught me that hard work is more im- portant than anything else," she said. "it's the true answer to being successful." "Being involved with student government has developed in me a sense of respon- sibility toward student organizations on campus," said Todd Martin, NSA chaplain. "My involvement has helped me see the need to work with the organizations as well as giving me a way to get things done." Vice President James Maupin summed it all up, "Student government is a good learning experience...and it's also a tool to make things better for all."

We represent every aspect of campus and our main goal is simply to have fun." - Harper Winton Students were encouraged to join a new organization on campus which was initiated to stimulate fellowship and facilitate an atmosphere for positive interaction The basic goal of the organization was to benefit the members, school, com- munity and surrounding areas and to have fun in the process. The definition of AGAPE' was the love of humanity, as opposed to love for your immediate family or the love felt for say, a spouse. Many people referred to AGAPE' love as the highest form of love, which evolved from a quote the Apostle Paul made in saying, "the greatest of these is AGAPE' love." Others referred to it as unconditional love, also evolving from Christian concepts. The disadvantage to the name was that few were familiar with it, but the advan- tage was that everyone who was familiar with it appreciated the concept. The group started with only twelve members in the fall semester, but doubled by the spring. They were involved in many activities during their first year, includ- ing singing at area nursing homes, planning a dinner theatre as a way of provid- ing entertainment to the public and social functions that included themselves and anyone else who wanted to join the fun. Their energy was directed to many wor- thy causes and they offered all the talent and skills each member possessed. l Membership in the organization was granted to any student who expressed an interest in the club. Members felt they satisified their main goal for the year. They promoted student fellowship, activities and interactiong and examined individual, social, and institutional concepts of worship, beliefs, morality, values, attitudes and relationships and above all else, they had fun.

Dr. Don Quby i Students chosen for admitance to these elite organizations often found that membership proved to be a stepping stone to advancement in their careers They say the cream rises to the top and often that's true. At least it was true for the approximately 16 percent of our university's students listed on the dean's and president's honor rolls this past semester. Making the dean's list required a 3.0 grade point average, but the 4.6 percent comprising the president's list had to maintain a stringent 4,0 GPA, no small accomplishment. For Tahlequah senior Sandi Fisher, the rise to the top was gradual, beginning with a 3.0 and finally reaching a 4.0 in the fall semester. Fisher had always made pretty good grades, but felt making the president's list was just a matter of mak- ing a greater effort. An education major, Fisher's academic skills have been recog- nized through membership in Kappa Delta Pi, an education honor society in which she served as president. Kappa Delta Pi is just one of the nine honors organiza- tions representing various disciplines. Senior Todd Martin, business major and member of Phi Beta Lambda, felt that the time given to his studies was well rewarded. While he didn't hold membership in the business organization as an original goal, he ws pleased to receive the honor. "Certainly I wanted to do the best I could academically. I wasn't even aware of the group when I first came to school, but it was a great goal, something to shoot for." According to Martin, being an honor student wasn't without cost. "There were so many other things to do in college. Some people thought studying was the last thing to do. There were some sacrifices. I didn't get to spend as much time with my friends at the lake or on the tennis court. That was the price you had to pay. Martin felt that the benefits of good grades extended past honors at school. "I think good grades speak well of your efforts," he said. He was right. Professor of Industrial Technology Dr. Dunn Faires and others in his area have followed up on honor students from their discipline and have obtained some facts worth noting. "Those students maintaining good grades during their years here were earning significantly better wages than the average student. They were not only earning more, but they were usually placed in jobs of greater responsibility," said Faires. Faires, also co-trustee of Epsilon Pi Tau, felt that those students were identifia- ble long before the grade books closed. "You could generally spot them based on two or three things. First was their academic achievement, but we also believed we could spot certain characteristics that were traits of leadership," he said. "We found these students excel not only here, but excelled in other areas of their educa- tional experience as well." Those students named to honors organization this year had the pleasure of reach- ing the top of their academic discipline. Now they look forward to some decided advantages as they search the job market for full-time employment. Alpha Chi Tricia MCC-inn. Dana Cates, Sara Brown Alpha Dsi Qmega David Currey.

NEPA Fx ' H is It A 3 pf Pi Kappa Alpha Year brings challenges he 1987188 school year proved to be a challenging one for many of the fraternities and sororities at NSU. An upstart newspaper angered many with its satiric comments about the Greek system, while the frater- nities and sororities themselves sometimes had trouble agree- ing on important matters. Some frats saw their membership rise to new highs, while others struggled to survive. Through- out good times and bad, though, the members of NSU's 'Greek organizations always held their heads high and wore their respective colors with pride. The Fall Howdy Dance gave the Greeks a chance to ac- quaint new students with their organizations and what they ,had to offer, and the football lseason gave them the opportu- 'nity for a little good-natured yelling competition in support of the Redmen. The Homecoming float competition gave the various groups a chance to demonstrate their creativity, as well as their en- durance. ln the spring, the frats and sororities held their formals and participated in another spirited Greek Week as the year drew to a close. lt was a year that saw increased involvement in community and charity projects by all the Greek organizations, and much talk of tougher aca- demic standards and more responsible alcohol use. Above all, though, it was a lot of fun. Growth played a major part in the agenda for Pl KAPPA ALPHA this year The chapter's growth meant an increase in programs and in responsi- bilities. The year started with the lar- gest pledge class in the chap- ter's history during the fall semester. "We had an influx of guys who knew what they wanted and went for it. That's what we look for in pledges," said Terry Stover, rush chairman. The chapter sought to in- crease chapter unity by peti- tioning for a resident floor in the dormitories for all members and for induction into the NSU Hall of Fame. The Pikes were named the Most Outstanding Fraternity for the second year in a row and Greek Week Champions for the third consecutive year ln addi- tion, former president Steve Kinion was selected as the Out- standing Greek Man. The 70-man fraternity's ac- tivities for the year included events such as the Christmas tree contribution to area nurs- ing homes, a blood drive and the annual fishing tournament to benefit a shelter workshop for the mentally and physically handicapped. "The year was spent wisely," said Greg Hubbard, president. "We knew what had to be done. We knew we had the men to get it done. We want to grow, not only bigger but in ways that will make ourselves and the fraternity stronger." -Don Stinson Pl KAPPA ALPHA Kneeling: Stuart Coley, Keith Rogers.

Sigma Tau Gamma, Acacia Traditional socials highlight year IGMA TAU GAMMA national fraternity was founded on June 28, 1920 in Warrens- burg, Missouri. Four years laten Zeta Chapter was founded at Northeastern on May 10, 1924, making the Sig Taus the oldest fraternity on the NSU campus. Zeta Chapter sought to raise its sights during its sixty-third year. The chapter sought to in- crease membership, get more involved in community activities and raise more money. Sigma Tau Gamma mem- bers did not believe in all work and no play, however. During the year the chapter hosted the annual Hairy Buffalo party, al- ways one ot the biggest parties around, and had several smaller rush parties and get- togethers with the sororities and alumni. As the year drew to a close, the members of Sigma Tau Gamma could look back upon a good year and hope for even better things during their sixty- fourth year at NSU, CACIA fraternity was founded at the University of Michigan in 1904 and holds strong spiritual ties with the Masons. The NSU chapter was chartered April 29, 1971 by 30 founding fathers and now has 192 initiates and an auxiliary group, Acacia Little Sisters. During the 1987188 year the lo- cal chapter sought to strength- en its member's academic standing while increasing membership. Acacians hosted several so- cial functions at the Mason Jar, received second place during Greek Week activities, spon- sored car washes and conces- sion and bake sales as fundraisers and sought to in- crease Acacian input into the Interfraternity Council. A popular function held an- nually by many Acacia chapters was the "Night on the Nile" party, complete with a papier- mache Sphinx, hieroglyphics on the walls, the river Nile, pyramids and harem girls. -Don Stinson of-:L Q'- E Acacians square off against Pikes during a fall intramural football match.

'L 'vfr' ' Greeks H26 Interfraternity Council Highs, lows felt b IFC he INTERFRATERNI- TY COUNCIL QIFCJ served as the governing body for all NSU fraternities, as well as serving as a liason between the frater- nities and the administration. The 1987-88 school year was one of both success and frus- tration for IFC. The group's first project, "Get Involved," was designed to promote Greek in- volvement in various campus activities such as intramurals and the Homecoming float competition. Fraternity mem- bers were also encouraged to become involved in other cam- pus organizations. "The project was successful, although I feel much improve- ment can still be made," said Jeff Cordle, IFC delegate and project coordinator. A proposal to set higher aca- demic standards for Greeks caused much controversy within IFC. In the end, the council elected not to raise standards, to the dismay of IFC President Steve Kinion. "I am truly sorry for the NSU Greek system that a few Greeks are so nearsighted not to realize that high academic results derive from high academic stan- dardsj' Kinion said. Kinion added that "a strong academic program is one of the avenues that must be taken in order to build a strong Greek system at NSU." One subject the IFC delegates did agree on was guidelines for responsible alco- hol use. In addition to a set of printed guidelines, a forum was held with representatives from the district attorney's office, ABLE commission and NSU campus police presenting their viewpoints on college students and drinking. "It's important Greeks know the liabilities involved with drinking, and this forum was an excellent method of educating them," said Brian Galloway, IFC treasurer. "Building a strong Greek system takes time," according to Kinion. "lt can't be done in one year, but I'm confident that successive IFCs will build on the foundation we created." -Don Stinson INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL Front row: Steve Kinion, Pi Kap- pa Alpha, presidentg Jett Cordle, Pi Kappa Alphag Paul Turpin, Aca- cia.

Evidently the lo- cal chapter was also one ofthe best, as they were voted the "Pride of the Province" award as the top chapter in Ok- Iahoma. The DZ's were active throughout the year in a wide assortment of social, philan- thropic and community activi- ties. They sponsored a paper good drive to help raise money for Help in Crisis, a local shelter for abused women and chil- dren. They also supported their national philanthropy, Galludet University for the Speech and Hearing Impaired. The sorority members took their annual formal lakeside this year, as the Killarney Rose Ball was held at the Fin and Feather resort near Gore. The group also held many other so- cial activities with the various fraternities on campus. ELTA SIGMA THETA sorority is a public service or- ganization that was founded in 1913 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. During 1988 the sorority had a membership of over 150,000 women, with chapters as far-flung as Haiti and Liberia. 1988 was a special year for the ladies of Delta Sigma The- ta, as the sorority celebrated its 75th year of public service. The ladies of the Eta Sigma chap- ter dedicated the spring semester to community service and had several guest speak- ers to encourage and inform students about today's job market. -Don Stinson DELTA SIGMA THETA Joletha Miller, Paula Lowe, Fen- netta Wells, Latricia Clark, Nete- tia Walker.

During NSU's Kaleidoscope Karnival, the Sigmas once again sold and released bal- loons to raise money for the Robbie Paige Hospitals in Dal- las and St. Louis. As a commu- nity service project, the sorority sponsored fingerprinting of children at the local Wal-Mart. Their spring formal was held in Muskogee, and in addition they participated in many par- ties and social functions. The members felt that their rush was a great success as they welcomed several new sisters into the fold.

With so few sororities active, the competition could have turned bitter, but Panhellenic was always there to iron out problems and help build a greater spirit of cooperation among NSU's female Greeks. During the year Panhellenic raised money by signing up subscribers for AT8tT's new call- ing card system. Each person who signed up was given a free beach towel. Most members agreed, however, that the highlight of the year was the joint slumber party Panhellenic sponsored for Delta Zeta and Sigma Sig- ma Sigma sororities.

I was fortunate enough to have such players." - Tom Eckert A Never-Say-Die Attitud L cl The Dedm n To S ccess Tom Eckert's first season of Redmen football got off to a successful start, and the success story continued as they finished the year with a 7-4 record. They also earned an Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference championship and a trip to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Tournament for the first time in four years. "The guys didn't quit even after the 30-7 loss to Southeastern in the first OIC matchup. They came back and won the last four," Eckert said. "I told them never to forget that, because that's what life was all about. Never quit." Eckert served as the defensive brain for the past 16 seasons before his promotion to head coach in December of 1986. The season began with a coaching shift. John Higginbotham was elevated to defensive coordinator filling the shoes of Eckert and Bill Nowlin returned as the offensive coordinator Eckert, a stellar quarterback for the Redmen in 1964-65, took the quarterbacks and runningbacks under his wing. Graduate assistants John Horn- er, Monty Lewis and Rick Haasl took care of the defense. Horner coached the backs while Lewis worked with the linebackers and Haasl the strong safeties and rovers. The Redmen opened the season playing five of its first six games on the road, traveling to Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri and Southern Oklahoma. "The road trips had their toll on the players, not just physically, but mentally as well," Eckert said. After posting a 3-3 record halfway through the season, the Redmen began the last half playing three of four games at Gable Field, where they had not lost since 1985. The gridders defeated Evangel College, 22-15 for a rain-soaked homecom- ing victory, a game in which the Redmen defense held Evangel to minus 15 yards rushing. Following the Evangel game, the team faced three weeks of grueling OIC ac- tion. First, the Redmen throttled Southwestern State, 25-13, at Weatherford behind Jenks sophomore Reggie Barnes' 223 yards rushing. Next, the Redmen intercepted five Northwestern state passes in route to a 22-3 win at Gable field. In this contest Barnes became the fifth inductee to the 1,000 Club for rushing over 1000 yards in a single season.

David Tate, sophomore from Beggs, batted away East CentraI's last chance pass in the endzone as time expired to give our team the championship, 31-24. NAIA's number one ranked team, Pittsburg State tKansasJ, closed the books on an exciting year for the Redmen in the first round of the playoffs. The Gorillas scored on their first seven possessions and made their way to a 57-0 win. At the close of the season individual accolades began to surface. For his relent- less work as head coach, Eckert was honored with the title of District Nine Coach of the Year. Mike Adams, senior free safety from Tulsa Memorial, had 33 tackles, two sacks and four interceptions in his last season on the Redmen. Charles Betts, senior linebacker from Fort Worth, Texas, surprised opponents with 111 tackles, of which 71 were unassisted, the most by a Redman since'DarreIl Scurlock made 92 in 1984. Adams and Betts were the only Redmen ever named first team All-American and first team defense in District Nine and the OIC. Betts was also named Defen- sive Player of the Year in the OIC. Reggie Barnes and Heavener senior Lance Yandell were awarded Honorable Mention All-American by the NAIA. Both were named to the offensive first team- ers for District Nine and the OIC. Barnes ran up 1,166 yards and Yandell provided the thrust to help Barnes reach his yardage. Dover sophomore David Grider was a first team defensive selection for District Nine and the OIC, registering 21 tack- les and five sacks in his first season with the Redmen. The Redmen earned the rank of number ten as they ended the first season in a much talked about era. They shared the OIC crown with East Central University. They also earned a spot in the NAIA Division I playoffs and the team reaped in- dividual honors. Coach Eckert and his never-say-die-attitude guided the Redmen to a banner year.

Sophomore Qeggie Barnes, tail- back, earned his membership by rushing for 129 yards in 27 carries which gave him 1,081 yards with one game left to play in the season. He attributed his success to the olfensive line. 'AOur line deserved all the credit," said Barnes. "They blocked so well, all I had to do was run." In addition to the elite member- ship, Barnes was also recognized as the lirst Qedmen player since 1984 to rush for more than 200 yards in a single game. He tirst broke 200 by 18 yards against Northeastern Missouri State and again by 23 yards with a game clinching. 65-yard, fourth quarter touchdown against Bouthwestern Slate. During his freshman season. Barnes, in 10 games made 99 at- tempts lor 453 yards. "Last year was a learning experience. I had to learn a lot more offensive sets than in high school," said Barnes, "By the end of the season I was still a little ner- vous, but I had calmed down a lot." "It really didn't matter to me how many yards I carried of how many touchdowns I scored." commented Barnes. "ljust like to win and I don't like to lose. "We have had some good running backs at the university," said Tom Eckert, 'Deggie tits right in with the rest of them."

Kan- sas Newman, Marymount College and John Brown all fell by the wayside as the Bedmen climbed to 3-1 for the year. Bartlesville Wesleyan shocked Tahlequah, 1-O, to make the Ftedmen 3-2. Over the next two matches our soccer team split, beating Arkansas-Little Rock, 2-1, and losing again to Bartlesville Wesleyan. The Arkansas match held special significance because it marked the first time our soccer Redmen had beaten an NCAA Divi- sion I school. They opened district play with three consecutive home matches. The Ftedmen beat Phillips University, Oklahoma Christian College and Oklahoma City Univer- sity by a combined score of 15-O and regained a slight edge, boasting 7-3 for the season. After playing on their own turf, the Ftedmen hit the road for three impor- tant district games. Arch rival Southern Nazarene beat our soccer players 5-1, at Bethany. The Red- men fell behind 4-0 at the half and never recovered. Three days later in another match with OCC our team was defeated 3-1. The following week the game was forfeited because OCC had used an ineligible player. "This was the low point of our season," said DeLoache. "I think the OCC game jarred us into reality and made us play better." LeTourneau College fell, 3-0, in the Ftedmen Homecoming game. In the match Tulsa Edison sophomore Phil Barkely became the team's career goal leader. The Ftedmen closed out the regular season with two consecutive home losses.

The Ftedmen traveled to Bethany to face OCU in the first round of the District Nine playoffs. Tahlequah junior Sam Bowers got the Ftedmen off to an early 1-0 lead that looked like it would hold up and give the team another win. OCU scored with 2:24 left in regulation play to send the contest into overtime, where they won the game on a penalty kick. History was made in this game as it was the first Fied- men soccer game to be broadcast over the radio. During the season players set 17 team and individual records. Barkely became the team's career goal leader breaking Blake Brown's record of 22 goals. In just two seasons Barkley had 23 goals. "This was our best season even" said DeLoache. "We were competitive with everyone and the guys gave 110 percent all year." The team scored 44 goals surpassing the 1985 mark of 37, while on the defensive side the Redmen set another record allowing only 25 goals. "We began the season with a good attitude and had more confidence in ourselves," said Phil Barkely. DeLoache cited the play of David Beasely, John Biles, and Chris Spicer as the determining factors in a great year. "David was our catalyst at midfield. He moved the ball and got us into scoring position." Spicer, a junior from Tulsa Eastwood, played with Team USA on a 33-day tour of five European countries and the Soviet Union. "Chris returned as a more seasoned player and proved to be anchor on our backlinej' said DeLoache. Spicer and Bites had to be given credit for their defensive play. When Spicer was at his best he was perhaps the best defensive player in the district. Biles also played well and improved with each game. This year's soccer team experienced highs and lows like most other athletic clubs. They grew with experience and became better soccer players. Their achievements were definitely something to be proud of. 'u Mike Jones - Q , .. 9 Q 3 , Q 'f an - Q . at . , . Q U s . - - 'si Y , Q ,, 4 . Q v Q 'f 5 'Q s Q 7 1 Q 5 .

The team boasted 26 goals in 18 matches breaking the old record of 25. Matt Muratore breaks up a play in a match with Letourneau College.

Looking at the season from an overall point of view cer- tainly revealed the soccer team had accomplishments of which they could be proud. There were some problems though. The same situation that plagued the Ftedmen last year reoccured in the opening round ofthe District Nine Tournament as the Redmen came within one point of advancing in the playoffs. Prior to a match with Oklahoma City University, the team gathered for some last minute support. iPhoto - Mike B row nj Keeping the ball in play and out ofthe net is the responsibility.

What we lacked in experience and size, we made up for in effort." - Ken Willis Lad Deds Started Their Season ith Man Unanswered Ogestions ln what was called a rebuilding year after the loss of several key players, Red- men fans couldn't help but wonder how these unanswered questions would affect our women's basketball team. How would the Lady Reds replace a player like Mar- garet Thompson, not to mention the other key players who had graduated? Could the team win another 23 games and go to the district finals and challenge for a trip to the national tournament? Ken Willis, head coach, got his first chance to answer some of the questions when the Lady Reds opened their season against Austin College. They routed Austin 87-45 with senior Lisa Burd and freshman Kolette Jones paving the way with 14 points each. Through the first 10 games the Lady Reds were 7-3 and the questions that had been asked earlier in the year seemed obsolete. In the second half of the season the Lady Reds faltered slightly, winning only seven of their last 15 outings. In the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference race they won only two games, both against Southeastern State. ln the other games the Lady Reds managed to stay close in all of their losses by an average of five points. Despite a sluggish second semester our women's basketball team still had a chance to go to the district playoffs, but all hope diminished after a loss at North- western State.

Sports Kia son, senior guard Paula Lowe gave an outstanding performance, scoring a season and career high of 28 points to close out her season at our university. Lowe finished the year as the third leading scorer on the team, averaging 11.3 points per game, and proved to be a tenacious rebounden averaging 5.9 boards per game and gained Honorable Mention All-District Nine. ' Through the course of the year the saying, "two is better than one," became evident, the two being twins Karla and Kolette Jones. They ranked one and two in scoring. Karla led the team in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 8.3 re- bounds and 21 points per game. She was named to the second team All-District Nine and was ranked nationally in scoring. Kolette was second on the team in scor- ing, averaging 11.7 points per game, and ranked third in rebounding. Kolette scored a season high of 30 points against the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Though there were some questions at the start of the season, it didn't take long for the Lady Reds to make it clear that they could recover, managing to end their campaign with a 12-10 mark. The total recovery might have been slow in coming. but with the loss of only three seniors after the season and several promising return- ers for next season, many fans awaited the upcoming season with great anticipation 'I Mike Jones 3 .Xttempting a shot in the lane is Lady Reds Karla Jones who is being guarded by Fent.

A cornerstone lor womens varsif ty athletics at our university. Mason grew up in ltlaysville, Ark., and played basketball at Siloam Springs. Ark.. where she was an All'State tor- ward herijunior and senior seasons. Upon graduation in 1947 Mason played one year at Connors College betorejoining the Qed Heads.

Mason was a member olthe lirst. womens team to play in Alaska. "We packed them in everywhere we went." said Mason. In 1956 Mason lelt the Ded lteads because she lclt it was time to move on to something different, She enf rolled in our university to major in physical education. "1 always wanted to be a physical education teacher l wanted to leach women the use ol' good motor skills." She was graduated in 1959 and went. on to Oklahoma State where she received her masters degree. Mason joined our faculty in 1965 and served as our women's basketf ball coach until 1979, She then lilled the position ol' womens tennis coach and had plans to remain active in coaching.

Nonetheless, they came away win- ners because they didnt give up." - Ken Hayes Slow second se ester, unhappy ndin but Dedni n aine awa Winners The 1987-88 edition of the Pledmen basketball team had as many twists and turns as a best selling book. Unfortunately for the Ftedmen the year did not end happily. They finished the year with a 16-10 record, ending as the eighth seed in the District Nine playoffs. Southern Nazarene closed the books on the Ftedmen in the first round of the playoffs, winning 108-89. The first half of the season read like a "How To Run A Fastbreak" chapter as the Redmen rolled up numbers only their counterparts from Norman could com- pare. We opened the season with back to back routs, scoring 138 and 127 points. Over the course of the semester Ken Hayes and troops marched to seven victo- ries against only three defeats ttwo to the University of the Ozarksj averaging 102.1 points a game. January opened in the same upbeat fashion as the Redmen stormed to four consecutive wins to stand at 11-4. At this point the Ftedmen story turned to tragedy. East Central spoiled our first Oklahoma intercollegiate Conference outing, winning 72-71 on a last second shot.

Northeastern State, coached by youthful Kevin Riggs, went from everybody's patsy to the playoffs in one season. In his first season at the helm, Riggs guided the Ftedmen to a 33-15 record, which included NSU's first playoff appearance in six years and a second place finish in the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference. Just a year prion the Redmen finished a dismal 14-30 overall and 2-14 in the OIC. No longer was NSU considered a patsy. "Our players gave us their most," said Riggs, who was a graduate assistant at NSU in 1987. "This season certainly was alot more enjoyable. There are a lot of teams which don't have seasons like this one." h Three Ftedmen earned All-District Nine honors in pitcher Dan "Hooter'y Christie of Tahlequah, second baseman Dan Snover of Bay City, Mich., and outfielder Kel- ly Osburn of Muskogee.

This was the second winningest club in school history. The 1982 team, which had been the last Ftedmen squad to qualify for the playoffs, was 37-17 and also finished second in the league race. The Ftedmen won seven of their first eight and a strong finish boosted NSU into the playoffs but the team was bounced by Oklahoma Baptist. NSU's bid to host a first round playoff game fell short as the Ftedmen finished fifth in the District Nine regular season standings.

That's just average, so-so and mediocre. But, Northeastern State's 19-19 finish in 1988 was one step shy of miraculous. Coach Tim Livesay's Lady Reds had only a dozen in uniform and seven of those were freshmen. There was one sophomore, two juniors and two seniors. The Lady Reds started as many as a half dozen freshmen. NSU was surprisingly consistent despite rookie errors which cost the Lady Reds dearly at times. "Whey you are as young as we were, you're going to make those mistakes," ,said Livesay. "l am pleased with our finish. You see the improvement in the team and confidence grows in each girl. "This was a real learning experience for our youngsters. They took their knocks but they can be better for it." Dltcher Chris Stevens ducks as third baseman Shelli Brown fires to first base for an out. Never was the team more than two games below the .500 mark, yet it could never get two games over the break even point. Perhaps a high point was splitting a doubleheader with powerful Oklahoma City University, which finished fourth in the NAIA national tournament. The Lady Reds reached the District Nine tournament semifinals before being eliminated. Third baseman Shelli Brown capped a brilliant career by earning All-District Nine honors for the third straight season. Brown, from Broken Arrow, led the team in batting with a .316 mark. Senior pitcher Chris Stevens, of Silver City, N.M., closed out a three-year career at NSU with All-District laurels and was an all-star repeater For the Lady Reds, the future was 1988.

The Ftedmen captured their first golf crown since 1966 a year ago and reclaimed the title this spring edging out Southwestern State 1628-6313 at the OIC tourna- ment in Durant. Stacey Shiew, a Tahlequah junior, earned fourth place by shooting a 155 in the 36-hole tournament. Shiew was named to the All-OIC team. Moore juniors Terry Tarwater and Donnie Weaver each finished with a 156 to earn All-OIC honors. This was Weaver's third time of being named to the All- conference squad. The Bedmen captured first place in the NSU Invitational Tournament at the East Lake Hills golf course in Vian. NSU shot a 595 while SWOSU finished with a 628 and Southeastern State with a 633. Lee Perry, a Tahlequah freshman, carved out a two stroke 1144-146j edge over teammate Jeff Gordon, a Vian freshman, to earn medalist honors in the 36-hole tournament. Tarwater took third place by beating Moore junior Andy DeShazo in a one hole playoff. NSU finished fifth at Missouri Southern State College's Crossroads of America Golf Tournament in Joplin. Tarwater shot a 151 and earned third place in a scorecard playoff. Shiew, who entered the tournament unattached, finished the first round shoot- ing a 73 but wound up with a 156.

For the first time in three years, the Northeastern State track team failed to win the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference championship. The Bedmen finished third behind OIC champion East Central and Northwestern State while clinching first in one event. Mike Adams, a Tulsa Memorial senior, received his fourth consecutive gold me- dal in the 110 high hurdles with a NSU record setting time of 14:38. Adams also qualified for Nationals for the third straight year and placed second in the 400 in- termediate hurdles. Bristow junior Duncan Mason took second place in the 800-meter with a time Of 1:57.25. Richard Bishop, a Sand Springs sophomore, leaped 22-8 to clinch second in the broad jump. Donald Satchell, a freshman from Garland, Texas, placed second in the 100-meter with a time of 10:47, which set the school record. Kevin Tate of Jones took third place in the 400-meter with a time of 50:36. Junior Mike Cain from Oklahoma City Northwest Classen finished third in two events. Cain clocked in at 5:00.93 in the 1600-meter while running a 10:35 in the 2-mile. NSU's 400-meter relay team, which consisted of Tulsa Washington senior Kevin Rucker, Broken Bowjunior Bruce Natt, Adams and Satchell, took third place with a time of 43:24.68.

If we keep playing like we did this year all we can do is iinprovefl Charlie Wilson l Tenni teams experience highs, lowc The Northeastern State University men's tennis team had one of its most produc- tive seasons ever during the 1988 campaign. NSU, 12-7 in duals, won the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference tennis title at Tahlequah on April 22. The Ftedmen followed that success a week later with a third place finish at the District Nine Tournament at Oklahoma City. NSU accomplished these feats with a relatively young squad. Three freshmen and one sophomore played at four of the six singles spots. Perhaps the hottest player on the team was freshman Michael Tisdale. Tisdale paced the Ftedmen with an 18-7 record in duals, including wins over opponents from Northwest Missouri State and the University of Tulsa. Tisdale was the OIC champion at number two singles and a runner-up to Oklahoma City University's Greg Stephenson at the district in the same Spot. Sophomore Jason Shaw was the OIC champion at number three singles and the district's runner-up. Tisdale and Shaw combined at number one doubles for a 10-8 record and the championship in the OIC and a runner-up finish at the district tournament at Ok- lahoma City University. At the OIC Championship the Ftedmen also won singles titles from freshman Craig White at number four, senior Robert Mitchell at number five and at number six with senior Chip Barnes. The moment was especially sweet for Barnes, who had to fight his way into the rotation after being beat out early in the year. White and freshman Ronnie Hill were OIC champs at number two doubles, while Mitchell and Barnes won the number three doubles Spot. At the OIC NSU won 25 of a possible 27 points to win the title going away. On the women's side of the nets things did not go as well, as the Lady Reds failed to win a dual, finishing with a dismal O-8 record. Trouble began for the team before the season got under way. Head coach Willa Faye Mason lost her two top players and had to re-adjust the rotation. Number one player Gina Ellis and number six player Prauttus Samuel were the only two players to garner more than one dual victory, both finishing with two each. In doubles play Samuels and Sherri Dotson were the only pair to get a win, finish- ing with a 1-5 record.

Sports 160 lg eq- "The turnout for intramurals was fantastic, just huge. We had so many teams it was overwhelming? Don Cox on- arsity athletes found plent of ornpetition in intramural Interest in intramural sports continued to increase this year. The events were iighly competitive and turnout for these annual games wiped out all previous ecords. The season opened with a golf tournament early in September with five men ihooting for the title. David Tees of the Dream Team earned the first intramural win. Flag football got the students pumped up for intramurals. More than 145 stu- lents participated in the 120 game series. Because of the large number of par- lcipants it took a staff of 16 to run the football league. The intramural football irogram grew from 19 teams last year to 33 this year, including seven women's eams. Members Only and Men in Optometry clashed for the men's title. Members Only scored on its second and fifth posessions to knock out MIO 13-12 for a victory. 'he women's team matched THTT lToo Hot Too Trotl and Lady Members, with THTT letting the victory. Intramural track was next on the fall roster Two teams, Members Only and THTT acked up points for the overall championship. ln the two-mile run Clark Brunner ron for Members Only and Johnnie Hamilton won for THTT. In the four-mile run Aike Mashburn, no affiliation, took the winners spot and Hamilton won in the wom- en's division. Volleyball competition completed fall intramurals. More than 30 teams compet- id for the championship. ln the end MIO saw their first victory and THTT saw their ourth. "The competition was a lot harder this year. No matter how good your team eemed to be, there was always someone out there who was better," Terry Stover aid. The growing interest in intramurals brought about the expansion of playing fa- ilities. Two new football fields and one softball field were erected. Flon Cox, director if the Fitness Center and intramural coordinator, felt the new facilities would al- ow intramurals to grow even more. The spring season opened with 30 teams competing for the basketball crowns. l'- i,-,fwvbi 1 , ' . T Yi'.i",-N-JK ., . - . f iakvtlg, X 5,1 .. V A :J Y' -f 'f' ' .. gL2?:fif1:"a.LfW Q .U - K .

"I was excited about the season," Cox said. "We had more teams turn out than ever before." League competition matched up 100 games before the final rounds began, New names found their way to the winner's list as the Knights took the win and Every Man's Desire took the women's title. l'lt was a lot of fun, but it was also a lot of work. All the teams were really good. I was happy we won," Missy Dozier, EMD basketball player, said. Racquetball afficionados clashed for individual championships as Colin Strange- by beat out Members Only for the title and Karen Anderson of THTT took her team to another victory. Unpredictable spring weather gave way to a spectacular day for swimming and the tug-of-war competitions. Swimming moved Members Only and THTT closer to championship ranks as they won in the swimming categories. Tug-of-war com- petition matched the two year champion Rope Warriors and the Pikes in the fi- nals, but a matched weight limit of 1,850 pounds gave the Pikes their first victory of the year. The women's division matched Lady Members with the Pikettes in the finals. Each of the teams won their first three pulls and in the end the Lady Mem- bers pulled the Pikettes to their first loss in only 10 seconds. The year ended with a celebration for Members Only and THTT as they won the overall intramural championship well ahead of the other competitors. For the team who participated in the games and displayed good sportsmanship through- out the season, the reward was a "sportsmanship award." That honor went to the Pikes. Cox said intramurals allowed students to meet and compete against other stu- dents that they otherwise would not have met. "Through intramurals, students de- veloped a sense of spirit, sportsmanship and comraderie with others," Cox said. 'I Darryl Thomas l6l! Fitness Center pro ieled divefsit in recreation Decreation played an important role in the daily lives of many students. Be- cause of this most had memberships to the campus Fitness Center. For a small fee students enjoyed the Center's benefits. They have top-of-the- line weight equipment, racquetball courts, an indoor heated pool, and basketball facilities. Outside of the center were sand courts for volleyball and other leisure activities. One of the most popular games at the Fitness Center was racquetball, a game many enjoyed because of its fast pace and strenuous exercise. "The courts were full everyday from 11 a.m. to closing," said Alan Johnson, as- sistant director of the Fitness Center. "I enjoy playing racquetball because it helps me stay in shape. lt's a very excit- ing and enjoyable sport," said Brent Keith, a student from Sand Springs. Siloam Springs junior Lawrence Bell can frequently be found on the basketball coun. "I enjoy just coming in here and shooting baskets from time to time. lt helps me blow off steam and deal with pressure," said Bell. Kaleidoscope competition brought football players out to vie for the tug-o-war match. Wes Duke watches as Lance Yandell and Troy Wltzansky give it all their strength. During Kaleidoscope some students enjoyed the friendly competition of a horseshoes match. Sports 162 Tulsa sophomore Denise Marouk can most often be found leading aerobics. " used to take aerobics in Tulsa. When I came to NSU l attended the aerobics class at the Fitness Center. When an opening came for someone to teach the class I applied and was hired," said Marouk. l'For me it's fun and challenging and there': always some new element to deal with." Also popular is weight lifting. With both Nautilus equipment and free weights many students chose this to keep physically fit and stay in shape. "Anyone who lifts weights will stay in shape and will feel better about himself,' said senior Mike Adams. "I work out for my own personal benefit of keeping fit," said Walt Pesterfield "Also, to increase my body size." Whether for a karate class, to lift weights or have a leisurely swim, students wht flocked to the Center reported a heightened sense of well being by getting physi cal as well as mental stimulation while at college. ,,,....,.---H A fencing class is taught by Dr. Dan Eric Spring concentrates on his toss.

Most were not disappointed. Some even continued to room together throughout their college years. You remember your roommate, don't you? That person who oc- cupied the other bed in your room, talked all night instead of study- ing, left the cap off the toothpaste and shared your clothes. Learning to live with a perfect stranger wasn't easy. There were all those little thoughts that kept running through your mind. Usual- ly, they were trivial thoughts such as, "What if he doesn't like me?" or "She's probably a perfect '10' and every guy on campus will want me to set them up." Getting to know each other was easiest when you were trying to make that small, drab room look like a million bucks with match- ing bed spreads, curtains, knick-knacks and arranging life size posters on the walls. Living with a mere acquaintance took a lot of patience and tact when it came to dealing with the little things.

You promised to write and call every chance you got, but summer was full of warm weather activities that made keeping your promise difficult. As the close of summer drew near, the excitement of seeing your roommate was overwhelming. You drove your parents so cra- zy with talk of missing your roommate that they were ready to murder you. Finally, the day came when you could go back to school. You were both very nervous about seeing each other after the long summer break, but when you set eyes on each other you knew everything was still the same. Students shared not only day-to-day experiences, but they shared the financial aspects as well. Life away from home was less expensive when the cost was shared with another. But, most of all, roommates were those special people that gave you a hug when you needed it or would lend an ear when you had a problem. '- Elizabeth woods ,..

The problem wasn't getting someone to answer a ques- tion, almost everyone had an answer. The problem was finding the person with the correct answen Here are a few of the ques- tions and some of the incorrect, as well as correct, answers. When will OTAG checks be in? That question was asked at just about every office on campus. One student replied, "They came in a long time ago and we'Il get them when the people in Financial Aid get ready to give them to us." This response was understandable, many students had to deal with the frustrations of waiting for their aid checks to ar- rive. However, according to the Financial Aid Office the checks usually arrived at the end of the third month of each semester: How do I drop or add a class? Many students had the wrong idea about this. Many students thought the best was, "Just don't go to class anymore." This was not a smart thing to do it you had any concern about your grade point average. Paula Page, transcript clerk in the registrar's office, said that a dropladd form had to be filled out and signed by the student's advisen "They come to us first and we just have to send them back to their advised' Page said.

It wasn't always new students who had questions, there were many things about our college community ot which even veteran students weren't aware. Pictured, top to bottom, on the right are the lopsided football stadium, and one ot the two columns that were reconstructed from bricks salvaged after the female lndlan Semi- nary had bumt. 1Photos - Paula Hood, Darryl Thomasj New students weren't the only ones with questions. But who had the answers? One common response was, "You don't need an advised' Well, maybe some of us didn't, but it was nice to know you had one if you needed some advice. According to officials, new students found out who their advisors were by going to the New Student Advisement Office in the Administration Building. Why are there two columns in front of Seminary Hall? "An old building was torn down and that was all that was left," seemed to be a common assumption. University archivist Victor- ia Sheffler said, "One of them was dedicated to Florence Wilson, principal of the Cherokee Female Seminary from 1875-1901. I am not sure about the other one, but they were both built with bricks from the original Cherokee Male and Female Seminaries." Why is there only one large side to the football stadium? " So when a game gets boring, we could count the cars going by on the road," was a reply several students thought was funny. There were more Redmen fans than visiting fans, according to Doug Quinn, sports information directon New students came to campus and many found they were lost in the excitement of our university. They experienced a new at- mosphere and while trying to adapt they had to ask questions. Veteran students tried to help the rookies, but sometimes they just made things worse.

A group of Ross Hall students gathered in room 215 and made plans for the evening. Eight o'clock rolled around and the decision was a familiar one - rent movies. "lt was a good way to break the monotony of parties and home- work," said Michelle Fancher. Videos invaded dormitories and transformed dorm rooms and resident hall lounges into mini-theaters. They became an alter- native to prime time television as well as a few hours of enter- tainment. Rental businesses offered special rates to students.

Inexpensive prices made it possible for students to combine their resources and rent in quantity, taking advantage of the nomi- nal fees. "l have a player," Lee Yadon said "a lot of us just got together and rented movies. It was cheaper than a trip to the theater." Comedy and adventurelromance were tops at video markets. "Beverly Hills Cop ll" and "Ferris BuelIer's Day Off" were the hot comedies, while "Dirty Dancing" and "The Lost Boys" could be seen at least once a week in someones room. Video shops close to campus took advantage of their locations and offered students a change from familiar activities by adding alternative entertainment for couch potatoes.

It didn't necessarily start at midnight, but usually began when classes were oven and there was no telling when it might end. A walk down the halls of one of the girls' dorms often revealed fifteen or twenty girls in one room, snuggled with their teddy bears and pillows watching Patrick Swayze in "Dirty Dancing" while chowing down on pizza. Nighttime activities consisted of every- thing from studying until the wee hours of the morning to 3 a.m. hunger attacks. "I spent most of my free time at night studying," said freshman Jamie Hale. Most everyone knew what the girls did after hours, but what about all the guys? A few of them could be found studying, but others were found hiding in their rooms watching videotapes of their favorite soap operas and loving every hour of it. What they didn't realize was many of them were found out when they were overheard discussing the latest soap dilemmas. "During my af- ternoon break I enjoyed watching 'Days of Our Lives'," said fresh- man Bryan Johnson. For campus residents wlth the munchles, a few extra dollars and no tranportatlon, late-night hunger means a trlp to the vendlng machines. The Unlversity Snack Bar extended its hours to help satiate hunger. Danny Slack and Scott Shannon took ad- vantage of the snack bar's new hours and ordered food to take back to the dorm. tPhoto - Darryl Thomasj People l 72 A mixture of I2 or I5 students, 4 large pizzas and plenty of videotapes. Guys and girls alike could be found playing cards, talking on the phone or carpooling to the nearest party. For some people late hours of the night were spent catching up on the day's events with their roommate or having a heart-to-heart talk with a close friend. During the spring term, the University Snack Bar encouraged late night munching by extending their hours to 11 p.m. Most stu- dents enjoyed the extended hours because it gave them a chance to study in an area that was more quiet than most dorms, and there was plenty of food available for those unexpected hunger pangs. Freshman Michelle Bolton said, "I loved the new snack bar hours because I would often get hungry while I was studying late at night." Others enjoyed it because they didn't have to stock up on goodies before the snack bar closed and could take care of their rumbling stomachs with hot food, instead of candy or chips. For some, Midnight Mania was a way to release the day's ner- vous energy, but for almost everyone it was an essential part of campus life. 'n Elizabeth woods ai f .

Even with new games on the market, some students chose the old standards such as Monopo- ly.

Midnight Mania I Freshmen 173 Keeping Up The bumper sticker on a car parked in front of Southwest Leoser Hall summed up how many students felt about the latest trends, "The one who dies with the most toys wins." Fads came onto the scene depicting a craze or an attitude. The briefly popular practices became a catch-word to a decade known as the eighties. In a chaotic time of varied personalities, people boasted of security, scents, sunglasses, challenging games and laid-back attitudes. A two inch tall musical group form California hit the air waves with a remake of the popular sixties tune "I Heard It Through The Grapevine." The California Raisins appeared on commericals, bill- boards, sweatshirts and even had their own Christmas special on television. The band members became a must for people who boasted of their toys. Other groups of playful critters like "Pound Puppies" and "Care Bears" provided security and were dehnitly collectable items. Kelly Mouren a Care Bears collecton said it was the thrill of collecting them all. "They gave me a sense of security when things didn't go right," she said, hugging "Love-A-Lot Bear." Uncommon scents were popular in a variety of forms: incense, perfumes and potpourri packets. The aromatic scents came in sachet scentbags and cricket box designs. Colognes and perfumes helped in the male-female attraction Games are always popular on campus. But the "old" games, such as Trivial Pur- sult, were out as more involved games came into vlew. When books were put away and students didn't feel up to getting out, a friendly game with others was a simple alternative. Pictionary, the draw and guess game, hit the market this year with great success. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj New fads are often old fads that have been revived. Wearing of sunglasses diviat- ed from its intended purpose this year Rather than being worn to shade the eyes, outrageous sunglasses became a fashion statement. Teresa Owings, Kris Elsberry, Tyran Gerbitz and Sarah Ferrell sport the latest in shades. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasl People 174 For a rural college community, staying in touch with the latest was not a problem. game. Money was no object as ambiance played a part in the capture. Ladies donned Giorgio, Liz Claiborne and White Shoul- ders while the men boasted Polo, Drakkar-Noir and Lagerfeld. Then there were "shades" of every color imaginable. Pink, blue, tiger striped and even sunglasses with closeable blinds were a hot item on campus. Every "hip" student had at least one pain the more outrageous the betten The amusement front boasted games like Scruples, which challenged one's ethics, and Pictionary, which tested one's draw- ing ability. The latest in action games was Hacky-Sack, which con- sisted of seeing just how long you could keep a bean-filled ball bouncing without using your hands. The best thing about the game was that it could be played in a group or alone. Speaking of alone, Oklahoma's laid-back attitude was preva- lent on campus. Many students appeared uncaring about trouble- some matters, living by the themes, "Oh well" and "lsn't that special?". Seemingly unaffected by life changing situations, stu- dents made comments such as "I hate it when that happensl". The crazes of '88 arrived on campus, were collected and faced possible replacement by fads of the future. One had to wonder if any thought was given to what would become of 4"must-have" items.

Townspeople, local merchants and the Tahlequah Chamber of Commerce expressed their patronage by participating in the university's annual Pride and Appreciation Day celebration. Many area businesses displayed university posters and schedules of campus sporting events. This was only a small portion of the evidence. Pride in our university could be expressed through a variety of items embellished with our insigina. When considering things that were adorned with our school emblem, the first things that came to mind were typical: Pencils, ink pens, notebooks, folders, T-shirts, caps and jackets. But when browsing through the Bookstore one could find virtually anything with our school logo printed on it. Anyone could express spirit from head to toe by wearing vari- ous items which displayed our school brand. The list included hair barrettes, jewelry, sweatsuits and shorts in a wide variety of styles. Pins, belt buckles, ties, gloves, scarves and socks were also available. For those with youngsters in the family, the Book- store offered a large selection of chiIdren's clothing that sported the university symbol. ,ffsblf iw ESQ , ft EF 595 - ,,M,v""'i' M kkkhkk krrykhk i The design used on most campus stationery is also displayed on sweatshirts and many other wearable items.

The signs were located on each major highway coming into Tahlequah. Pictured, bottom right, were some of the many items available in the University Bookstore. Many students were proud of our emblem and found innovative ways to show it off. tPhotos - Darryl Thomasj 176 Objects boasting the university's insignia played an important part in publicity. Our trade mark could also be found on briefcases, key chains, deluxe playing cards, bookbags, umbrellas and lighters. The list continued: There were calendars, frisbees, mugs and glasses, window signs, stuffed animals, pillows, green and white footballs, floor mats and directors chairs. Senior Tirsa Embry had a posten a football, a mug and clothes that helped express her pride in the university. "I don't know why I bought all this stuff," said Em- bry. After a moment of consideration she continued, "Really, l do know, I like to represent the school in good fashion." The Bookstore was not the only place to buy school parapher- nalia. "We maintained a sales booth at school football games," commented Sue Rousey, manager of the University Bookstore. "Sweatshirts, megaphones, stadium cushions and pennants were among the biggest sellers at games," continued Flousey. There were many items on which our emblem was displayed. There was no denying the financial benefits derived from the sale of these goods. But there was another benefit - the expression of pride -the value of which could not be measured on a mone- tary scale, or could it? 'u Paula Hood welflitixlequak , .1 A, ,,,,....,.W,wff""' V . .

Others felt that today's students, members of the "me genera- tion" were far too busy wearing designer clothes and planning for their yuppie future to be concerned with issues outside of their immediate needs. Were students doing only what was required of them? It was true studies were their primary goals and they were concerned with the future, but was that all? A recent study on freshmen attitudes by the American Council on Education did find that being very well off financially was one of their goals. It was also reported that success motivation was equally matched by a concern for survival. This was true accord- ing to James Pilant, Northeastern Student Association president. "Students wanted their college years to pay off. They knew what it took to survive and they wanted to make sure they could survive." But did the success and survival factors overshadow all else? Were students still concerened with social justice and communi- ty service? Absolutely! Our students didn't march or protest or capture buildings to make their points, but concern for their fel- low man ran deep and expressed itself in a variety of ways. 5 4 i'i' "': Y, ,,rV f f ii 'S' ' if frir y V ""i ' Extra work is often necessary to do the job right. Being in class was only a fraction of the time spent on education. On the average, students spent two hours working out of class for every hour they spent in class.

Democrat Jessie Jackson and Republican George Bush were the presidential choices made by voting students. iPhoto - Norman Torrezj People 178 According to rumors college students did just enough to get b . Organizations of every kind, from Greeks to campus ministries, were involved in helping others. Take for example, those students who helped with the Special Olympics and gave several parties for mentally retarded adults. How about the PEMM Club that jumped rope to earn money for the American Heart Association? Several campus ministries worked during the year earning money to send to missions throughout the world. Some earned money to go on mission trips to paint and repair homes for the poor and elderly. Others expressed their concern by presenting seminars on such social problems as teen pregnancy, rape and battered children. One fraternity volunteered each week as drivers to take the elderly shopping or to doctor appointments. Besides the more altruistic activities, students were also involved politically by campaigning for their favorite candidates or en- couraging others to register. lt was time to squelch the rumors. Our students were conoemed with success, but they also demonstrated active concern for the social ills of our day. Far from being immersed in selfish pursuits, their efforts made this university and the Tahlequah community a better place to live. , , fc -.-1-MH Z W fp f , fp, H 2 f 2 1 W fu- A If- Q W-,WWW .'-' t s f w fs egg -it , ft s i rg , gt.

"Hitler was a kind and gentle man. He once gave me candy when I was four," Gennrich said. She lived in Munich when her chance meeting with the German ruler took place. "There was a parade going through the town and all the houses except ours displayed the Nazi flag," she said. "Hitler noticed and stopped to talk to my mothen Before leaving he gave me candy and stroked my hain" Gennrich agreed that Hitler was a disturbed man who thought what he was doing was the right thing. Gennrich can recall many stories of war-damaged Germany not recorded in any history books, "One day my sister and I went to the store to receive our rations for the week. Along the road we saw soldiers lying dead on the ground. On our way home I want- ed to get off the main road and take the shortcut, but my sister told me no. Later we wished we had because partisan soldiers spotted us and took our food away." She remained in Germany until she was 16 when she received a scholarship to Oxford University in Britain where she partici- pated in the foreign exchange student program.

Sitting in a rocking chair, reading a newspaper and smiling just didn't seem to fit with his actions during World War Il. One could easlly fail to realize that the seemingly gentle man sitting with this child will always be remem- bered for his demented behavior during World War II. From these photographs Adolf Hitler appeared to be like any other man. They revealed a side of him that only peo- ple of his country saw. Eva Gennrich felt that people needed to be more aware of all the facets in this man's personality.

"Some tried to get me to argue, but I wouldn't," she said "I didn't see any point in arguing." Keeping her ideas to herself, Gennrich re- mained steadfast in her belief that history books told only part of the story concerning Adolf Hitler. 'I Jerri DeWeese These photographs of Adolf Hitler were found in a scrapbook dated 1934, that is kept in the Special Collections Department of the John Vaughan Library, to whom we wish to extend a special thank you. We chose to use the photos because they depicted a side of Hitler, we felt, that few Americans had ever seen. tgutlvwzs L,-4 ie i 1 1 Q E: 1:-- r5g,5i?sig,ses1 1 at aff-itEif5Q2ff"gztf"SsfsQ1fHi Seizesf2iwEiai':i2m,ie'1i5wiGif3,1113 Wgiit f.s'g:15Pis'2zQfsriliwssilfsaif:,,f:,w:,i-5155seiS'E2ffEs3gE,2,sg,iei2,:t3 ,2Q,sYEH2i:ir-if sivei5tP12:212'sE:i111:' .- wggast tssgsietsgglUzetstigsigtsseiitlistgngmiegtvggesgzig,gap,gtgwgsE:3g3.y,qa,l1a1,.qg,tgf,5g,s5sg,st1s2ga,sg,l.,,3ig.'gx,tgg,,f,masses,3,fg3,:,stws-.gM,, eg,msQ,we,gsQ:,tg:,Fa:,pfwiseggesqtlggsgtgzfgfrtn N zttwgagsvgmit11a,g:1ss1i,,g,tg,stg,-gss gq.1,t,,,,5f - Siieigffsf' Weigh ifiixfszzwltzwi wsW:fw,Sef.iiigfwsfesggghfi'wg,iMisS?s mazwiyersfs yew2.:mSfma1iyq51:w:re1112.552f:1if,,fsa:ma5,eH'fitvsfabgteziaiwz:wg,x1'MzwHi'gQ?sg1whslhvsswswlati,,fu1:lelfssbwimfqwm:wseSswf.f f zwizfslwzw , ,t L. . , it ,, gem me ,,,s,,1wgf ,, tslggfxmetfrigp it wi if Weffmggigr www, was isis seiwteslvws M Q.

Freshmen 181 to Repeat Performance l October 27 proved to be eventful for evangelist Jim Gillis. Did Gillis achieve the desired results by being arrested? Ultimately, his face and name were known by witnesses. On the same day of 1986 and 1987, Gillis, from Indiana, was escorted off campus after attempting to "preach" to students. Gillis ridiculed students and the university by calling both "very wicked." The incident ended when Alice Negelein filed a complaint and made a citizen's arrest. Negelein said, "He stated, 'all sorority girls were sluts and slept around.' l did not appreciate this com- ment." Negelein was leaving when a woman she didn't know asked her if she wanted to do something about it. She did. "l went over to a police car and filled out a report, then made a citizen's arrest," Negelein explained. Alter the event was over many students began to wonder if the unknown woman was one of Gillis' followers and the whole epi- sode was a stunt to gain free publicity. Campus security transported Gillis to the Cherokee County Jail where he was charged with breach of peace. Campus Police Lieu- tenant Fl.B. Breshears said, "The students remembered him from the year before and started throwing things at him." Breshears felt it would be wise to get him off campus before the situation " out of hand. He was no real problem except for aggravat- ing the students and it didn't take him long to do that," said Indiana evangelist Jim Gillis shares with students his idea of a sermon. Gillis was not concerned with the tact that he had been escorted off campus and told not to return the year betore. For him the most important thing was to share his beliefs with as many people as possible. Gillis belived that our nation'e universities promoted cor- ruption and decadence. He lelt college campuses were where he could do the most good, even if it meant violating the law. iPhoto Servicesl People 182 Being arrested for breach of peace didn't discourage this man from returning. Breshears. "The first amendment protects freedom of speech and the right to assemble," continued Breshears, "but when it came to the smooth running of the university we had to get involved." Gillis was also seen at other universities. "He was at OSU and other colleges up north," said Breshears. "He went from one universi- ty to another and got noticed everywhere he went." Cherokee County Assistant District Attorney Doak Willis said Gillis was charged with trespassing after being forbidden to return to the campus. He had to forfeit a S50 bond for this and the previ- ous charge. The misdemeanor disposition docket, set for Febru- ary 24, gave Gillis the opportunity to do one of two things. He could change his not guilty plea to guilty, or request a jury trial concerning the charges. One eyewitness estimated Gillis had 15 people with him at the hearing, where he requested a trial by jury. During the proceed- ings, Associate District Judge Lynn Burris asked two of his as- sociates who were taking pictures to leave the courtroom because cameras were allowed in the courtroom without prior permission. His trial date was set for March 29 at 9 a.m. 5 Benny VanSchuyver At the time ofthe deadline for this article the trial had not yet taken place, but a follow up story with the outcome of the trial will appear in the news section. 2...

Sophomores 183 8h ee limo 1h l Double Trouble Very few students pondered superstitions, . I , j g gggg u I uuuuu I . qu but those who believed were serious. l'listorically, Fridays were considered unlucky. Eve suppos- edly tempted Adam on a Friday. The great 40 day flood was said to have started on a Friday. It was also believed that Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday. The fear of the number thirteen has been referred to as triskaedekaphobia. The number thirteen was considered unlucky because it represented the number present at the Last Suppen There was also a related Ozark superstition that said if thirteen people ate at the same table, one would die before the end of the yean Hollywood did its best to further the idea of Friday and the num- ber 13 being unlucky by making the movie "Friday the 13th" and its sequels. They depicted a sadistic hockey-masked character named Jason who roamed about killing everything in sight. When asked how she felt about Fridays that fell on the 13th ofa month junior Beverly Quinton replied, " They don't bother me," and then continued, "As long as there's not a full moon or I don't walk un- der any ladders or a black cat doesn't cross my path." Superstition played a large part in religion and personal be- havior. ln some religious groups when there was a death, they held what was called a wake. The dead body was placed in a room with a bell on the toe and an attendant sat outside the room. If the bell was not heard for three days, then the body was buried. Some of today's phobias go back to the fear of being buried alive. Because of primitive medical knowledge, the possibility of such p W T Considering the effect the moon has on our oceans, it's not difficult to understand why so many students believe in the astrological influences of heavenly bodies. Many campus residents felt that an early glance at their horoscope would give them insights to the day's events. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj superstitions are debatable. Wheather it was a fear of black cats, walking under ladders, opening an umbrella inside or breaking a mirron most students were unwill- ing to confess to any serious apprehensions concerning these events. Even though only a few spoke in support of their precautionary measures, if the truth was known, not very many people were bold enough to tempt fate.tPhotos - Darryl Thomasl a horrible demise did exist in earlier days. Shallow breathing was sometimes mistaken for death, thus the fear still exists. lt was be- lieved that the Northern Irish would eat a meal off the chest of a dead person in order to take away their sins. The most superstitious people are athletes. For example, if a basketball team won three games in a row and a player made it known that he had not washed his socks for three games, then he wouldn't wash them until they lost a game. Another example of superstitious athletes was baseball players who would not step on the lines of the field before they were up to bat or when chang- ing fields. Some thought they had to step on second base while changing fields. Most athletic superstitions were based on the fear of failure. Dr. Lee Quiett, professor of psychology said "Things happen by random occurrence and people need to justify the hap- pening, therefore they blame it on superstition." Other common superstitions were the fear of walking under lad- ders, black cats crossing their path, breaking mirrors and open- ing umbrellas inside. For some people, reading their daily horoscope was a ritual. Students wanted to see if what was predict- ed would happen. "l think that superstitions are only in the mind," said junior Layne Winfield. Whether people were willing to admit it or not, the majority had some sort of superstition.

The next day when his identical twin, Andrew, stepped in the batter's box during baseball practice, the first pitch to cross the plate hit his left hand and broke it. "Things like this happening are not unusual," said the Man- hattan, New York transfer students. "lt's a consistent pattern." Similar incidents happened to the brothers while in high school.

One researcher said, "Twins improve on the miracle of birth by doing it twice, a trick shot that never fails to dazzle us."Their matching appearance inspires a certain curiosity and at the same time their close bond arouses envy.

It proved interesting in what twins reveal about the rest of us. Scientists have conducted several studies in an attempt to tell us which qualities are fashioned by our genes and which by the at- mosphere in which we are raised. Fraternal twins don't resem- ble each other physically, but scientists have tested to see if cosmic similarities exist as strongly with fraternal twins as with identical twins. But like the test with identical twins, the results varied. Karla and Kolette Jones, fraternal twins from Tulsa, said they each have an identity. "We are alike in many ways," Karla said. "We both love basketball, but we also can be different and keep our own identity." Kolette added, "We don't have to worry about people confusing us. People mainly think that we are best friends and we are." Lonely children dream of a lost twin somewhere, that perfect companion and soulmate, one that would be there when need- ed. Twins are considered Mother Nature's gift of wonder and many peoples fantasy of another self. 'u Darryl Thomas ':,, 'alt-Z-.L 's .fr Qi V ' 'af Uncanny is an accurate word to use In describing twins.

Finding love was often the furthest thing from the minds of some students, but for others, when Cupid's arrow struck, the magic of love was hard to resist. "I didn't come to college to find a boyfriend, but when I met my guy I knew he was speciaI," said Carmen Tecumseh. Couples could be seen sauntering along, sharing private con- versations and an occasional kiss. Observing scenes like these often evoked the desire to find a friend. Not just a buddy you could go places or do things with, but a special friend with whom you could share secrets and feel secure. "It was hard to walk around campus and see all the couples together and not have a girlfriend here. It seemed even harder in the spring," said Stuart Coley. - at 2 ' fr X 6. an W A H A . Q .

During the cold days of winter couples looked to each other for warmth by sticking close together. Michelle Bolton and Layne Winfield felt the need to express their feelings while on a walk across campus. iPhoto Norman Torrezi People I 188 Away from home for the first time some students sought new relationships. For many, loneliness intensified as spring approached. While the landscape turned a gentle green and flowers pushed up through the ground, spring was a cruel reminder to some that they were alone. To even the most hardened cynic, it wasn't difficult to see that loneliness could be changed to passion. While one minute one might feel cold and alone, the next could bring unexpected love. Sharing a bench under the trees and midnight conversations were only a small part of being romantically involved. Having someone to love and share things with made up for a great many things that life seemed to lack. For many not having that special person nearby left them feeling empty, no matter what else they filled their time with. '- Darryl Thomas stew-" 1 2 .- .

On January 18th, two years after an offical holiday was declared in honor of the civil rights leader, some people seemed uncaring about King's fight with our nation in the name of equality. Even though the state operated on schedule, the Black Student Socie- ty held a celebration honoring King and his dream. Melissa McKinley, president of Black Student Society, felt that a program recognizing King was in orden "He did much for the American people, not just for blacks. He gave all he could give and it's time we gave something in return," McKinley said. At dusk, students gathered in front of the University Center with candles aglow and began their march around campus to com- memorate one ofthe many non-violent protests that King organized Leadership means to guide or to show the way. Martin Luther King, Jn opened the door to a new realm of thinking. He spoke to thousands at various gatherings and pointed out the injustices of segregation. Students marched around campus to com- memorate King's non-violent form of protesting. tPhoto - Darryl Thomasj Students participating in the march know there are still many miles to travel before King's dream will become a reality. They also realized, as with any other long term goals, that it was going to take time for the realization to reach all people involved. After students marched to show their support, they gathered in Seminary Hall to toast the accomplishments of a man who could see a world where there were no racial bar- riers. tPhoto - Darryl Thomasj Gur school and our students continued efforts to fulfill this man's vision. in an effort to gain support for his dream. The march ended at Seminary Hall where speeches, songs and a toast to the activist for his accomplishments were next on the agenda. During the program the group Voices of Praise sang "Glory Train" and " Thank You, Lord." Other students offered short speeches praising King and a segment of his famous "l Have A Dream" speech was read. Janis Jones shared a brief history of King's life and later said,"Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for a very strong ideal con- cerning human equality. The things he believed in have helped me to strive for stronger goals and a better future for myself." Achieving nationwide goals takes a strong leader to encourage people to do their part in supporting a cause. People haven't for- gotten King's dream and each day we continue toward the goals of having a country that operates within a system of equality for all of its citizens. 'a Darryl Thomas lp gel' . Fulfillment is not always the result of a dream. Martin Luther King, Jn dld all he could and diedtrying to accomplish his dream. Candles that represented unity and the joining of people were carried across campus In the commemorative march.

I Q i 1 L One Coed who researched her heritage J found a new direction for the future. i 3 Before statehood John Ross, the first principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, walked the Trail of Tears to bring his people to a new frontier. In September the great-great-great-granddaughter of Ross, Sta- cy Ziegenfuss, walked a similar path toward a new frontier when she was crowned Miss Cherokee. "I became involved in the pageant to learn and make inquiries about the tribe," Stacy said. In the process of familiarizing herself with the Cherokee Na- tion, Stacy became intrigued with her new found knowledge. "lt has changed me and my career goals. Instead of practicing law as I intended, I hope to work in tribal government lobbying for Indian affairs." Having won the title, the 5l16th Indian queen had many obli- gations to fulfill. Included were council meetings, speaking en- gagements, and traveling to the Eastern Cherokee fall festival in Cherokee, N.C., as a goodwill ambassador for the tribe. Stacy said she learned a great deal from the eastern Cherokee tribe. A different perspective of tradition, legends and character Trying to advance in the standings of the Miss Indian USA pageant, Miss Cherokee Stacy Ziegenfuss, takes advantage of her singing ability. The pageant was only one responsibility that came with the title. Stacy placed second in the modern talent com- petition with her rendition of "Love in Any Language." People 192 added something special to the small Cherokee village. As Miss Cherokee, Stacy was one of 30 contestants in the Miss Indian USA contest in Washington, D.C. Stacy was one of the top 10 finalists. She placed second in the modern talent competition, singing "Love In Any Language". Stacy's search for knowledge provided an insightful look at her heritage and a new direction for her future. "I was honored to represent the Cherokee Indians. I also benefited during the process. Cherokee people are looking into the future with a posi- tive attitude because it is the only way to solve problems." In the move west, John Ross and the Cherokees worked hard to make their nation a self-supporting entity. In spite of hardships, they learned from their journey. Since the days of John Ross many things have changed for Native Americans, but the tradition and direction has not changed. The legacy of Ross continues to be supported by Stacy and the Cherokee people. 'U Darryl Thomas Being in attendance at all types of tribal functions is another responsibility that goes with the title of Miss Cherokee. After a State of the Cherokee Nation Address by Chief Wilma Mankiller, Stacy posed with her cousin Eleanor, who expressed her pride in the young Cherokee who was seeking knowledge about her heritage, The title of Miss Cherokee takes recipients on many journeys. One such journey for Stacy Ziegenfuss was a trip to Washington D.C. where she compctcd for thc title of Miss Indian USA. While in our nation's capitol Stacy had the opportunity to meet many celebrities. Claude Akins was more than happy to pose tor a picture with Stacy.

H will 'IA' iii'.1' Accounts Pa ablo Did you ever wonder why attending college was so expen- sive? Most people were under the impression that room, board, tuition and books were the basic costs of attending college. While that was true, those were just the basics. But what about all the required extras? When the truth was known, there was more to the price of a college education than expected. Do you remember the questions you were asked during enroll- ment? "Would you like a Tsa-La-Gi or Emerald Owl?" or "Would you like a membership to the Fitness Center?" Possibly you said yes to one of those questions, and you expected an extra charge. But what happened when your statement came in the mail? The one you received during enrollment and the one that came via the post office were somewhat different. There was a charge of four dollars for your original student I.D. and a renewal fee of one dollar for every semester you were en- rolled after that. There was a vehicle registration fee of S12 for campus residents and S15 for commuters. There was also a stadi- um fee of S6 per semester, whether you intended to goto a foot- ball game or not. Perhaps you had to change a course or two. Then add another S3 per course change. 'iThe basic cost of go- ing to college was not that unreasonable, it was the little extras that made getting a college education so expensive," said fresh- man Patrick De Julius. As the years progressed the average student had various other charges that had to be taken care of. lf, for example, you needed several transcripts to include in scholarship applications, the university gave you the first one, but charged you S1 for each ad- People 196 The price of a college education kept students busy trying to make ends meet. ditional transcript. All students were charged 31.50 per credit hour for a University Center user fee. That averaged S180 to S5200 over a four-year period of enrollment. There were also special fees such as the cost of materials used in art or technology classes or prac- tice room rental fees for music students. The list of other classes that required special fees continued depending on your field of study. So, you finally made it through your senior year and somehow managed to keep up with the cost of room, board, tuition and books, not to mention everything else. You thought all the little extras had come to an end, but then came graduation. For the privilege of making your way through one last line and receiving a diploma there was a S15 tee for either a bachelor's or master's degree and a S520 fee for a Doctor of Optometry degree. You also had to buy your cap and gown for which the bookstore assessed a charge of 316.46 for a bachelor's degree, 8528.95 for a master's degree. "l think that if the cost of a college education continues to rise, that more people will decide against attending college," said fresh- man Tony Burge. By the year 2010, four years of college is expected to cost some- where in the neighborhood of S150,000 to S200,000. Tutition is ex- pected to continue rising at a rate of about 7 percent a year from now to the end of the century. We thought it was hard to keep up with the cost of attending college, but according to projections the situation will be worse for our children. H Elizabeth woods e.,w, ,- as ,, -as .::-wild . .... ..........q1 b . , -'-wasp fx Textbooks are a big expense in the student budget. The cost of books ranged from S15 to S45 apiece depending on the class. The University Center Bookstore sold old and new books and offered a reasonable buyback price for books returned at the end of the semester. Jamie Jo Tucker purchased her books before the rush of the first week ol school to insure that she got the books she needed for class. tPhoto - Darryl Thomasj Fees are inescapable for college students.

Q'1'wQ'lAxbk jj' lg? ,D aff im lei- if ref' 1 r.- -- Qur university-sponsored student newspaper The North- eastern was supposedly going to have to deal with outside com- petition for readers this year, and it turned out to be just that - supposed competition. Students did have the opportunity to expand their reading with three different student-related, off-campus newspapers. The North- eastern Point, The Front and the Ghostwriter appeared on cam- pus at various times throughout the year. "l wanted to give a different perspective than the school newspaper did. I would take a school press release and find the hidden story, rather than running it as it stood," said Fton St. Clair, editor and publisher of The Northeastern Point. St. Clair's paper was available to students every Friday, but the Point ran into problems with distribution. Because St. Clair, who graduated from NSU in the spring of 1987, was no longer a stu- dent and the paper was not affiliated with the university in any way, he was not allowed to come on campus and give them away. He was informed by university administrators that he would have to buy coin operated dispensing machines and charge students for his publication. This presented problems for the newly or- ganized paper. Though it did merit reading, few students could justify paying for a paper when they could pick-up a copy of The Northeastern free of charge. The Ghostwriter, a variety tabloid, was started as a group project .,-"' f 'Q The idea to publish an independent student newspaper is the ideal means by which journalism students can develop their skills. The Ghostwriter was a joint venture by four such students who wanted to refine their abilities. Editor Roy Hamilton designed the only issue ol the tabloid which was distributed on campus during the spring term. tPhoto - Darryl Thomasj 198 by fourjournalism majors. Roy Hamilton, James Edwards, Patricia McAlpine and Tracy Souter came up with the idea as a tool to develop their professional skills. "We brought about Ghostwriter as an expression. We needed experience and the tabloid was a way to gain it," Hamilton said. There was a great deal of talk about the tabloid among journalism students, but only a handful of other students even knew it existed. As with many such projects, Ghost- writer never really got off the ground due to lack of publicity. Then there was The Front. This publication definitely fell into the category of underground papers. In the first few issues its editor and publisher remained anonymous and boasted radical stories and profane words with part of the letters left out. lt definitely offered the student body articles and ideas not covered by The Northeastern. "We wanted a paper by the student," said the soon exposed editor Joshua Smith, "not just another paper with administrative input or a public relations tool. We relied on freedom of the press." Like the Northeastern Point, The Front was not allowed to dis- tribute papers on campus because it was not affiliated with the university. Because of its radical nature the future of The Front was not promising. It was suspected by most that it would join all the other off-campus papers that had fallen by the wayside. 'I Paula Hood .if 1' f Off-campus publications provide students with a variety of news that the school- sponsored paper might not cover. The Front's radical and unusual articles were not- ed as controversial subjects by the student body. Editor Joshua Smith reads over an article in the first issue to better understand student opinion. fPhoto - Darryl Thomasl Campus distribution proves to be a serious problem for non-university newspapers.

But, twelve years ago this was an average day for fresh- man Ker Vang, a native of Laos. Vang, of the Hmong tribe, shared his story. In English, Hmong means freeman, which is what the Hmongs fight for, freedom from communism. Vang was born in Xingkhoung, Laos, in 1967. From the time he was born until late 1979, when he came to America, Vang's family continually moved around central Laos to escape the Communists. In 1971 Vang's fathen a member of the Hmong forces, was killed by the Communists as were all of his siblings except for an older brother. In 1975 Vang's mother decided to escape Laos with a group of 30 other Hmongs. Vang and his mother began their 100-mile journey to Thailand through the mountains and jungles of Laos, leaving his brother, grandparents and homeland behind. One month later they arrived in Thailand and stayed in a ser- ies of Thai camps before arriving at Vinai, a Thai camp which was Vang's home for two years. This was where he and his mother were reunited with the family they had left in Laos. While they were living at Vinai, an American general came to the camp and told the Hmongs who wanted to come to the United States they would have to fill out an application. Vang's mother responded and after a year-long process, his mother, brother and Vang were sponsored by a Catholic priest in Lawton, Okla., who made their overseas journey possible. Vang had no expectations about the United States since he knew so little about the country. "I remember thinking that it's a very strange country, fora long time my mother did not want People 200 A native of Laos, Ker Vang had no idea what to expect when he came to the U.S. me and my brother to go outside, she would say "Don't go out- side or the monster will get you." The biggest difficulty Vang faced was learning English. "The language barrier was the biggest problemg the Laotian language does not have enough words so it was hard to translate," Vang said. Vang, coming from a family of rice farmers, was raised on rice, pork and chicken. Vang preferred his mother's cooking to any type of American food. "At first I could not get used to the foodg it tast- ed very different," commented Vang. The biggest cultural difference between Laos and America was the role of women in society. "Here women have more freedom and go to school. ln my country parents told their daughters, 'Since you are a girl, get married and have children,' " Vang said. It really didn't matter to Vang if he married an American or Lao- tian girl, but she would have to like his mother. Coming from a country that believes in arranged marriages, Vang said, "l would like to marry a Laotian girl. If I married an American girl my mother would kill me," Vang added jokingly. Vang, whose relatives lived in Tulsa, did express a longing to go back to his own country. "I would like to go back someday, if there were a revolution and they kicked the Communists out." Many of Vang's friends listened to his stories with curiosity and interest. His stories usually sounded like segments from a war movie. Having had the opportunity to be acquainted with someone from a country so drastically different from our own gave many of his friends a new appreciation for the American way of life. 5 Stephanie Berryhill Spending his spare time in the drafting lab is common practice for Laotian student Ker Vang. Adapting to life in America was more involved than just fitting in with the crowd. Vang often needed to spend extra time considering the American thought process so that he could better learn in our educational system. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj as at ' f saw is 'W . , , , ,X R k t Q tv gagf ' 2 'gay' 5 X la 7" it tags sh a ,, f W.. 1 1, ,Xa t Q, 4 .favfefr M ,323 'Q vt it saw!

Seniors 201 Graduate Student After four grueling years of College, what would make a student sign up for at least two and maybe six more years? For some, it's the promise of a better job that a graduate degree might bring. For others, school had become a secure co- coon they were loathe to leave. Our graduate college had expanded in recent years to include master of arts in communication and master of arts in American studies, in addition to master's degrees in business administra- tion, education and science. Graduate students were a curious mix. Some had been out in the "real world" for some time, and some had been in college for six straight years. Some were single and some were raising families. There was no set mold that a graduate student fit. "lf you actually went out and looked at people, there was often no correlation between their degree and what they were doing. As often as not, they were not working in the field their degree was in," said Fort Gibson graduate student Mike Chanslor, Chanslor graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism. He was a sports writer for a year, and then in the golf business be- fore he decided to come back to college three years later as a full-time student in the master of arts in communication program. Alter being in the real world for three years between graduation and graduate school, Chanslor said, "I thought it was a good idea to get a master's. I didn't want to be a sports writer." Like most graduate students, Chanslor works in addition to going to school full-time. While working as an administrative assistant in Vice President Howard's office "there were times when work Tahlequah graduate student Don Stinson went directly from his undergraduate degree to graduate school where he was pursu- ing a master's degree in communication. His life was taken up with school more often than not. He was a graduate assistant and taught sections of English 1003 each semester, in addition to a work study job and the job of studying for his classwork. Stinson will graduate in Dec. of 1988 and hoped to use his degree to teach in ajunior college or small university. His bachelor of arts is in English. "I didn't think job opportunities would be plen- tiful with that degree. l felt a master's in communication would give me more diverse experience. "Graduate school was not as hard as I thought it would be, but it was more time consuming than I thought it would be." Stinson and Chanslor both praised the quality of the instruc- tors they had. "One ofthe best things was being able to go more in-depth in specific cIasses," Stinson said. "Classes were more interest- ing, more specialized than in undergraduate school. The choices were more interesting and more challenging." 'tl really enjoyed the classworkf' Chanslor said. The teachers I encountered in speech, English and journalism realized at this level the emphasis should be on learning. The classes were in- teresting, the teachers excellent. This degree was good because you were rounded in three areas." Most graduate students agreed with Stinson: "The worst thing was not being eligible for Pell Grants." came first," he said. tw 4 m,.aa.fs-.

The trip, sponsored by the university with the assistance of Bausch 8 Lomb Company, began April 24 in Seattle. After a 14-hour flight to Hong Kong, Dr. Cyert and her group -- which in- cluded Grace Urlanda, Eric Nielsen and Dean Evans -- flew to the Chinese capital of Beijing, the first of three Chinese cities they would visit on the trip. After a two-day stay in Beijing, the group traveled north to the ancient walled city of Xi'an, where they met with representatives from the Lanzhou Medical College, who acted ashosts and guides for the remainder of the stay in China. From Xi'an, the group and its Chinese hosts took a 14-hour train ride through the steep mountians to Lanzhou, Gansu. There the group spent several days working with Chinese doctors, students and patients at the medical college's First Teaching Hospital. Using its own equipment, our optometry group gave vision screening tests and wrote prescriptions for eyeglasses. In all, the four examined 186 patients and Dr. Cyert gave nine hours of lecture.

Preser ing Histor Anyone who wanted to know the answer to these or similar questions regard- ing the colorful history of our university did well to begin their search in the univer- sity's archives. Located in the John Vaughan Library, the archives senfed as the repository for all kinds of memorabilia, both trivial and significant. "As an archivist, I didn't al- ways know what we did have," said Vickie Sheffler, in her sixth year as archives director. "The most important aspect of finding information about the past began by knowing where to look, what sources to use." For instance, an old issue of the Cherokee Democrat-Star solved the mystery of what happened to JR. Holmes, who, according to another unidentified newspaper article, was named university president May 17, 1935. However, no record of Hol- mes' presidency existed. "Since we had no student newspapers in our inventory which were dated between May 16 and Oct. 17 of that year, we really didn't know what happened to Holmes," Sheffler said. A microfilmed article in the university's special collections area solved the mystery. Holmes, it turned out, rejected the post to remain in Muskogee as superintendent of schools, and J.M. Hackler took over the reins. "Much of our information was obtained from old newspapers," she said. "Be- cause writers were talking about events during the time it actually occurred, it was usually more accurate than hand-me-down accounts of the same events." Sheffler's interest in archives began when she was 17 years old. Olten her par- ents took her to the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The visit stimulated an interest which she carried with her through her undergraduate days at South- western State University and the University of Oklahoma, where she earned both her bachelor's and master's degrees in library science. Her interest turned into a full-blown passion while she was a doctoral student in library science and archives management at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio. She learned the university archives business at Case under the tutelage of Ruth Helmuth, president of the Society of American Archivists at the time. An internship at the National Archives gave her still more preparation for her career. Preserving history involves more than just stuffing a bunch of brittle newspaper clippings into boxes, she pointed out. Documents, for instance, must be stored in acid-free Hollinger boxes in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment. I Hai lu 5, hm M, ' f M' . +l'7f,f0lllr,ae.g Kim J --:cater--.. , efnffrias.

According to Vickie Shefflen director: interested parties could find virtually any information recorded about the college and the surrounding area. tPhoto - Mike Brownj Accuracy is a key element in the University Archives office. Many hours were spent identifying people, places and articles of interest that were associated with the university and Tahlequah. Student assistant Greg Rice worked hard researching the Cherokee Female Seminary's graduating class of 1909 in an effort to correctly identify everyone in the old photograph. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasi How many bricks were in Seminary Hall? What was the Cherokee Ice Box? As further protection, paper could be treated with a special compound with de- acidifies it, restoring its resiliency. Paper is then tested with a special pH pen, whose ink turns yellowish green on acidic paper and blue on acid-free paper. "The acid in paper causes it to self-destruct over time," Sheffler explained. Other documents are encapsulated in a special mylar plastic, which, according to laboratory tests, last 300 years without cracking or discoloring. Perhaps the most celebrated piece of memorabilia in the univerity's collection was a yellowed letter encased in mylar, in which Andrew Jackson wrote from the Hermitage that he was not feeling well on Oct. 5, 1939. The letter, written to the Cherokee Legislature, addressed problems faced by opposing factions of the Cherokee tribe. The archives also boasted a presidential epistle of less political consequence which was signed by former President Harry S. Truman. In his letter, President Truman politely turned down an invitation by former university President Garrison to appear here as a commencement speaker in 1955. Other treasures included an 1854 map of the country between the frontier, in- cluding what is now Oklahoma and Arkansasg two editions of an 1865 New York Herald with headlines announcing President Lincoln's assassinationg and a 1795 Philadelphia Gazette in which slaves were openly bought and sold on the front page. Other memorabilia of more provincial interest included in the collection were old pieces of Seminary Hall wallpaper, commencement programs dating back to 1922 and boxes of photographs, some over 100 years old. The photos included aerial views of campus, pictures of King George and Queen Elizabeth fthe Queen Motheri and a photo of General "Blackjack" Pershing. Persh- ing's diplomatic passport was also preserved in the archives' manuscripts collec- tion. "You just never knew when you would run across something of interest," said Sheffler. Oh yes, in answer to those questions, records show that 720,000 bricks were used in the construction of Seminary Hall. The "Cherokee Ice Box", commemo- rated in writing on a section of the sidewalk just outside the west door of Semi- nary Hall, marked the spot where a small creek flowed across campus. The creek which boasted ice cold water served as an "ice box" prior to the time the Indian Seminary had electricity. t -t 3 15 I , - Q . 1 it ,R Wt .

Instructional Services, part of the Learning Resources Center at the library, offered a wide vari- ety of services to our staff and faculty at no charge. Four service areas were covered by Instructional Services located on the first floor of the library. The Circulation area, coordinated by Bob Baker, provided facilities for faculty to view films and video tapes. lt also controlled circulation of the educational film collection, equipment such as video players, projectors and other educational materials. Betty Caldwell, graphic artist, assisted faculty with original artwork, transparen- cies, signs, posters and many other graphic materials in the Materials Production service area. Mike Allen, coordinator of Program Production, worked with instructors in de- veloping audio and video recordings, slide productions, research documentations, photographic procedures and computer-assisted instruction. This area contributed to upgrading the standard of learning at our university by facilitating a program which allowed instructors to participate in an educational aluable Service Many faculty members took advantage of the facilities Instructional Services had to offer. conference that was held in South Carolina. The conference was brought to the university via satellite and a toll-free number was provided enabling faculty to ac- tually become involved. Plans were being made to bring other such beneficial pro- grams to our campus. "Talkback Television" was another program orchestrated by this area. It was a program in which students were able to be active members of classroom lec- tures being held at other universities. Students could get involved and ask ques- tions by phone and earn college credits through our university. The library had two receiving rooms for our students and one transmitting room which allowed students on other campuses to participate in our course offerings. The fourth service area of Instructional Services, Self Serve Material Produc- tion, provided facilities for our staff and faculty to produce their own overhead trans- parencies and thermal spirit masters. The Instructional Service Center helped our faculty make classroom learning more meaningful and enjoyable by providing a wide variety of teaching aides for instructors. 5 Jana Sell People Ygzio 'Www li.

Evidence The grounds crew, a division of the Physical Plant, deserved much of the credit for making the best possible use of our campus greenhouses. lt was in these hot- houses that most of the flowers found on campus were nurtured until they were big enough to survive outdoors. The university greenhouse system consisted of three buildings. The west house was used to maintain plants for use in campus landscaping, while the two east houses were used by students in the horticulture department, providing them with the opportunity for hands-on experience. "I liked playing in the mud and planting things," said student Shirley Roberts. The west greenhouse was built in the winter of 1980-81. Over an eight-month period, it turned out between 16,000 to 20,000 flowers. At any given time, the house could hold anywhere from 10,000 to 12,000 plants. Winter was the largest growing season for the greenhouse with January and February being the two biggest months. "We grew the flowers for the campus," said James Secratt, head of the cam- pus grounds. "But we have gotten trees and shrubs from the Greenleaf Nursery." Not all of the flowers seen on campus were actually started in the greenhouses. "Sometimes we had to get special flowers. I called Chicago and Florida to get 'sparkplugsj plants which have started to grow. All we had to do was transplant them," Secratt said. W s Dodging the water, from various sprinkler systems scattered across campus, becomes common prac- tice for many students. Watering systems were used at regular intervals in an effort to compensate for the dry summer climate in our region. iPhoto Servicesj Feople U N 212 Of Success lt was obvious all across campus what was being achieved in our greenhouses. Monica Macklin oversaw the east greenhouses. They were built 17 years ago for the science department. For the past five years Macklin has directed the green- houses. "No one was in charge and I was there more than anyone so it became my responsibility," said Macklin. Horticulture student Annie Tyner commented, "I enjoyed watching the things we planted grow to normal size." This year, as always, horticulture and botany classes were held at the green- house and most of the plants were specimens. Macklin and her classes grew plants and flowers, including marigolds, petunias, tulips, poinsettias, and Christmas cac- tuses. Some of these plants were used as decorations at the Boares Heade Feaste, as well as many other campus events. Maintaining a constant temperature in the greenhouses was the biggest con- cern. The east house was very steamy and hot. It used 150 to 250 gallons of water a day and the plants were watered three to four times a week. Keeping the west greenhouse cool was done with the aid of a cold cell, which allowed water to run down its coils, while fans pulled the moisture out, to keep the house from getting hot. Much of the beauty throughout our campus resulted from hard work and main- taining our greenhouses. The people involved enjoyed their work. That played a major part in the success story. Their dedication was seen through the eyes of every person who took the time to notice our landscape. 'n Mitzy Sloan 'sat Identifying plants is only pan of studying horticulture. Learning proper planting techniques was also an essential part of the science. Students used the greenhouses to practice planting procedures and for ex- perimenting with various techniques to enhance growth. iPhoto - Mike Brownj Plants are an essential part of everyday life. Having some knowledge of the plant kingdom can often prove helpful in daily experiences. Students Shirley Roberts and Annie Tyner discussed what made one particular plant unique to the world of horticulture. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj ff in ' Office of Publications Office of the Vice President for Administration Fitness Center Wagner, director, Libby Osburn, Kathy Fisher Kathy O'Neal, locelyn Payne, Mike Chanslor Ron Cox, director, Toni Conrad, Allen johnson Asus K K X ' in , 1 ca' M W x :Q i l ROTC Office Auxiliary Accounting Veterans Office i.

Hel p anteol Many students failed to take advantage of one i very helpful service on campus. Sadly, one of the least utilized services on campus was the Placement Office located in the Haskell Hall annex. The purpose of the office was to bridge the com- munication gap between the academic environment and the work place. Place- ment assisted graduating seniors in finding positions for which they were qualified and helped employers locate people to fill positions in teaching and non-teaching disciplines. "We didn't place students, they had to accept that responsibility," said Bettye Best, Placement Service Coordinator. "We just furnished them with infor- mation." Placement kept graduate records on file after employment was secured and they maintained a mailing list to keep informed of the job market in an effort to keep graduates posted concerning additional job opportunities. "Students were always searching for additional opportunities. By checking in constantly, graduates received updated information on a regular basis," said Best. Unfortunately, many students failed to take advantage of the service. Ninety- eight to ninety-nine percent of teaching majors registered, but only one or two per- cent of non-teaching majors took advantage of the service. "We have worked on this for years," said Best. One reason for the lack of participation was the difficulty gm? 0 5 ,OO mx- Placement Coordinator Gina Lester advises Micah Martin about a potential employer The Placement Office was established to function as a liaison between students and companies who were seeking college graduates to fill vacant positions. iPhoto - Darryl Thomasj Student assistant Kathy McKee returns student portfolios to the Place- ment Office file cabinet.

Teaching majors were easily reached as a group during their monthly seminars while interning, but there was no one place to reach the non-teaching majors to inform them of the advantages the Placement Office could provide. Placement had to endure a rather depressing season because of Oklahoma's economy. There just weren't many jobs available in the state and when positions did open up they were filled quickly. The depressed economy forced students to apply for jobs out of state, while before many graduates remained in Oklahoma. The situation began to improve in the fall when many of the state's oil companies began returning to campus in an effort to recruit employees. "We were certainly thrilled about that," said Best. Plans to initiate a campus-wide campaign to increase student awareness con- cerning the program were being discussed. It was agreed that students needed to be made aware of this program that could alleviate some of the frustrations that often arose when graduates began their search for a rewarding position in the job market.

By night, he became an intense professional wrestler vigorous- ly pursuing the lnternaltional Wrestling Federation's Heavyweight title. For eight hours a day he tended the Education Building, but at night he took on the likes of the Grim Reaper, the Iranian and the 300-pound Big Bear. Jumper, who came to our campus in 1978, says he has loved wrestling since he was a kid and it's been a dream to be a professional wrestler. "I used to go to wrestling matches with my dad," said Jumper, who grew up in the Barber Community south of Tahlequah near Tenkiller Lake. He began wrestling when he was 19. "I told him someday I would be in the ring." Jumper traveled to New Jersey, Alabama and Tennessee in pursuit of opponents and be- came the number one contender for the title. Success did not come on a silver platter "I have had my share of defeats," Jumper said. "Sometimes I am the villian." Jumper put in a lot of work to stay in shape and prepare for an opponent. He was up at 4:30 a.m. to run and exercise. "I have had to go out and earn everything," he said. "When I got a match, I didn't hear the crowd and I didn't see anything but my man. In wrestling, it was winner take all." Jumper was upset by people who accused wrestlers of being fake. "I am living proof it was no fake," he said. "l've broken four ribs, an elbow and l've been body slammed on a concrete floor." Jumper wrestled every couple of months. "The money is pretty good but I wouIdn't N. wg l QNX' T lil lla Buster Jumper demonstrates his "Indian Deathlock" hold on a will- ing student, Mike Jones. Even though the responsibilities of his job in the education building took the majority of his time, Jumper still managed to find time for his lifelong dream. fPhoto - Mike Brownl Filling campus mailboxes in the education building is only one of the duties performed daily by Buster Jumper. This and similar tasks are his responsibility when Jumper begins his day on cam- pus. But, in the early hours before dawn, the custodian I pro-wrestler A pro-wrestler was in our midst and was spotted on campus disguised as a soft-spoken custodian. quit my job here," he said . "lf you get hurt in wrestling, you have to go without a check until you get well." He wrestled only twice in Tahlequah but he hoped the title match would be held here. The IWF champion was booked until July, so the title fight will be sometime after that, he said. The biggest thrill for Jumper came when he could make kids happy by sending them autographs or pictures. Some fans even come to the university in search of his authograph. "lf you have a dream you have to go out and get it, I tell them. Saying you are something and being something are two different things," said Jum- per. "You have to work to get what you want." Jumper's three children, Pam, Marty and Arlow, enjoyed watching their dad wres- tle and use his "Indian Deathlock" hold. He learned the hold from a Sioux Indian when he was a child, and maintained it is the only hold that cannot be reversed or broken. Jumper planned to wrestle for another 10 years and then become a referee af- ter living out his childhood dream. Success did not come easy for Jumper, but this mild mannered, soft spoken man proved to be a perfect example of someone who had a dream and refused to diviate from the path that led him to the realiza- tion of his goal. The story wasn't finished, Jumper still had a few miles to go to fulfill his dream, but with his determination, success was a certainty. Someday we may be able to say, "I knew him when . .

According to figures released by Pat Johnston, manager of the Parking and Traffic Office, the actual number of citations issued from Au- gust 26 through October 16 was 10,16O. Out of the citations which were issued, 1,932 were voided, and 557 were paid. "Many of the citations were never paid," Johnston said. The total number of citations that were not paid was 7,600. The way most of the students felt about the tickets was summed up by freshman Jac- que Tinnell, "They gave too many tickets for the wrong reasons." Limited parking areas was another problem. The parking system was based on what other state universities were doing. "There wasn't enough space in compar- ison to the number of students attending the university," commented freshman Jennifer Jones. A major factor in the problem seemed to be the number of spaces available compared to the number of parking permits sold. The number of stick- ers purchased outnumbered the spaces available by a ratio of two to one. "They should have made allowances when they oversold commuter parking," said junior Hazel McDowell. Complaints were numerous and administration responded. In an attempt to solve the problem, plans were made for the construction of new lots. The first phase began with the removal of the Tidmore Apartments from their location next to the There were often problems when it came to parking, but was it really that serious? Fitness Center and replacing them with a 49-space lot. "We have needed the new spaces for quite some time," physical plant director Bob Patrick said. "I thought the new parking lot was great, it was very convenient," said freshman Karen Da- vis. The funds used to build new lots came from monies collected for parking vio- lations and decals. Because of students who chose not to pay fines or buy decals, a proposed tow- ing plan was being considered. To date, no definite guidelines had been estab- lished concerning the plan. However the proposal allowed for a vehicle to be towed to an area garage and the violator would be responsible for paying all fines in ad- dition to the fee for removal of their automobile. Many students realized the new procedures would be aimed toward repeat offenders hoping to discourage them from continually ignoring parking regulations. Many agreed, it was often difficult to find a place to park, especially on Mon- days, Wednesdays or Fridays after 10 a.m. But taking a look at the situation from a realistic point of view, we were luckier than students at many other universities. Our students often failed to consider what it was like at other state institutions of higher education where one was fortunate to find a parking place within two miles of campus.

After all the complaints about the shortage of park- ing spaces it was surprising to find that it was almost a month after com- pletion before students began to use the new lot. iPhoto - Norman Torrezl Completion of a new parking lot and a lack of students utilizing the additional spaces may have prompted the implementation of twv- ing regulations. Students who failed to register their vehicles or repeatedly violated parking regulations were the offenders for which the towing procedures were designed, According to university offi- cials it was hoped news of the plan would discourage repeat offenders, This vehicle, parked in a "No Parking Zone" in front of the University Centen was the first to be towed off campus under the new regulations. tPhoto - Mike Browni i l l l Parking and Traffic Office Tina Burns, Carol Stanfield, Lisa Cobb, lamie Eaton Ben Elliot, Chris Blizzard, Ken Rivas, Pat lohnston, director Physical Plant Office LeRoy Wooley, Ruth Ridley, Mildred Fain, Bobby Welch, Clarene Hamby, Robert Patrick, director HJ'-"' Q-""'-MA' Parking problems are a concern of many students.

N it Sa if as f if A Consummate Educator Dr. Wesley Little realized the need for communication The description of Dr. Wesley Little by his former university president as a "consummate educator," made one curious if perhaps Little epitomized some il- Iusive standard of perfection. But in reality Little was a bright, articulate and ener- getic administrator deeply committed to our university, its faculty and students. The son of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Little, he was born in Barnsdall, Okla. and raised in Bentonville, Ark. Little graduated from Arkansas Technological University in 1964 and received his master's degree in 1967 from Henderson State University, also in Arkansas. His doctorate in curriculum and instruction was earned at the University of Arkansas in 1970. Little began his teaching career in Hot Springs National Park Public Schools. He later held administrative and teaching positions at the Universities of Arkan- sas, Tulsa and Wyoming. His last position before coming to us was as dean of the School of Behavioral Science and Human Services at Northern Michigan Univer- sity in Marquette. Little was not the only educator in his family. His pride in his wife, Betty, and her accomplishments as a master teacher and principal was justified. Betty, who Little referred to as his "superior half", possessed excellent credentials including three degrees in education. As parents and educators, the Littles took great pride in their offspring. Son Bob, a freshmen attending Tahlequah Junior High School has adjusted to a new environment. "lt's hard to leave your friends behind. Bob also misses the opportunity to sail on Lake Michigan, but he is flexible and adap- tive," said Little of his younger son. His 17-year old son, Hugh remained in Michi- gan. "When we left he was a junior in high school. After graduating he plans to major in genetic engineering at the University of Michigan." Dr. Little came to us to fill the position of vice president for academic affairs, succeeding Dr. Charles Prigmore who retired Dec. 31. Among the superlatives used to describe his performance in Michigan were: commitment, sawy and leader- ship. He was credited with the ability to propel the faculty. Little himself modestly stated that his empathy could account for that ability. "I have been faculty for nearly 15 years. I have empathy, not sympathy, for the faculty. l know what daily routine entails and l think l have an understanding and awareness of teaching. This is an essential quality in an academic leader. One component that is prerequisite in motivating faculty is to think in terms of productive goals. The key factor is for administration to keep in touch with faculty, to be aware of their needs and Division Chairmen Dr. janet Bahr Nursing svjf- Ili.

Roger Webb, the university was fortunate to acquire the services of Dr. Little. "He has a splendid record of successful higher educa- tion administration at several outstanding universities. Dr. Little has a reputation as an energetic leader and scholar who brings out the best in others." Little saw many positive things in Tahlequah: its history of stability, consistency and quality, its abundance of good, positive press and its competent faculty popu- lation and good students. His belief was that both faculty and administration must give serious attention to planning and setting priorities. He saw the means for getting the optimum effect from employees as two-fold: 11 involving the faculty and 2j giv- ing them a say in decisions. "We can't expect their support if this isn't done," he said. The academic program preview provided a case-in-point for Little. "This has been mandated and will have an impact on the future of this university, but this can be a threatening process and very time consuming. Without faculty input and cooperation, the effon would be worthless. It is important that we explain ourselves well in order to have their understanding and recognition of the study's importance," said Little. Little felt our university had the potential to become the most outstanding regional university in the state. Our weaknesses were symptomatic of the Oklahoma econ- omy. "There is some deterioration in all of Oklahoma because of the economic problems that have plagued our state. Higher education was one of the first areas to suffer," stated Little. "Salaries have fallen. Equipment and support for programs has been maintained at the same or reduced levels. In some cases the actual build- ings might have suffered. The weaknesses are not just at this institution, but products of the total state picture." According to Little, solutions wouldn't be immediate, but they would come. The working relationship between faculty and administration will be essential to effec- tive effort. "lt is our challenge to pull together. Administration can't do it without faculty and vice versa. lt's a symbiotic relationship. Neither can function at the maximal level without the other's support. We are hoping to rebuild and strength- en all areas. We hope to see programs and salaries regain lost ground," said Lit- tle. Coming to our university with new ideas and a fresh attitude, it didn't take long for the impact of Dr. Wes Little to be felt throughout the entire campus. ,Q 'ws-.,., .. K X 7 . .,..

I believe we can be the very finest institution of our kind in this part of the United States," said President W. Roger Webb. Looking back at the record it was obvi- ous Webb believed this university could be a leader in providing quality under- graduate education, but during a time when funds were restricted, that was no small goal. Webb has been president for 10 years. During that time there were remarkable changes including the retirement of a sizable dormitory debt, the addition ofa Col- lege of Optometry and a recreationlfitness complex. We acquired the University Playhouse, the Rosamund House and the Woods Center. Old lamp posts were replaced with new ones that resembled those used in the past and our campus has never been cleaner or more beautiful. Having received good press coverage statewide, the university was highly visi- ble. New programs were added with the Sequoyah Institute and Living Literature Center bringing fine speakers and entertainment to enrich the academic programs, and all this barely scratched the surface. Not a bad track record, is it? Not bad at all when you've considered that this was accomplished during years of extreme financial woes. According to Webb, funds have been restricted for the past five years. "This year we had less state dollars than in 1982. That's what made it so exhilarating, so rewarding. The peo- ple who made this place special were able to maintain their productivity in spite of the restrictions on resources. We had to learn how to do more with less. You look around and find some institutions who have obviously allowed reduced fund- ing to serve as an excuse or opportunity to justify mediocrity.l think this institution has rejected that." Webb likened his philosophy to a snapshot taken each year demonstrating how the school has looked and performed. "Each year you want to be able to see an improvement," he said. "You can't go for all the gusto at one time, but you can certainly go for a piece of it. You know you're in trouble if the snapshot remains the same." The snapshot for '88 was significantly different. One change was the acquisi- tion of the former W.W. Hastings Hospital and property Q12 acresj. This was a major accomplishment that the university had been diligently working on for approxi- mately six years. Besides housing the College of Optometry, the property will pro- vide room for expansion which will help carry the school into the 21st century. There were also major improvements in technology. "When we placed our library products on-line, our facility became one of the first in this region to have such forward-thinking technology," said Webb. "We also unveiled telephone enrollment. This allowed people to enroll from anywhere in the United States, or the world, Room for expansion is essential to a growing university, President W. Roger Webb proudly unlocked the door to show ofl the old W.W. Hastings Hospital. The university tried to obtain the building and property for several years. Not only will the old hospital serve as home for the College of Optometry, it will also pro- vide room for expansion. tPhoto - Norman Torrezj People sg 222 President W. Roger Webb was unwilling to settle for 1 second, he wanted only the best! as long as they had access to a Touch-tone phone." Another significant change on campus was the midyear loss of 19 faculty to early retirement. Webb regretted the loss of talent and experience but, always the op- timist, he saw it as an opportunity to re-examine our faculty needs. "This gave us an opportunity to determine our needs in each program area," said Webb. "As student demands have changed and programs have evolved, some areas had great- er pressures than others. This allowed us to do some painless shifting of personnel." Students, faculty and alumni responded to a guest editorial in The Northeastern written by Webb. He felt it was time to address concerns over the name Fledmen and use of a mascot. "Over the years both young people and adults have asked me, 'Why is it that Indians have to face the experience of educational institutions using their race as a mascot?' " stated Webb. "We used the Ftedmen name, no one was really concerned about that," he con- tinued. "What we were concerned about was the object on the field. There was a decline in spirit at our ball games. We were missing that element of having a symbol come out and rally us. Mascots provide opportunities for us to respond to that person who is friendly to us. We needed that sort of thing. Our students needed it, our cheerleaders needed it, our band needed it. So, we had a dilem- ma. If we could not use a Ftedman on the field, then we needed a mascot that was not controversial." On a more serious note, the media highlighted a scare about asbestos. However, not before the university had begun to deal with the problem. "The asbestos was found in underground crawl spaces. While I was concerned about this, it was not nearly as alarming as if it had been in classrooms or in open spaces where we had the public as a whoIe," said Webb. In retrospect, 1988 was an eventful year. Photographs definitely depicted change. Through it all it seemed that our president took the ups and downs of university administration with equal grace. He felt strongly about confronting issues rather than simply reacting to them. "As a university we must be able to anticipate what it is that this institution can best do to accommodate the population we serve. Too often, institutions have a tendency to allow inertia to keep them in place and to be reactionary as opposed to instituting change," said Webb. "Our vision for what should be done should also find us willing to take some risks. Sometimes we have to go against conventional wisdom, which by the way, is generally wrong. I think that's the philosophical position we have to be in." While our university will never be another Harvard, snapshots of our colorful history could fill an album with photographs picturing notable changes and ag- gressive efforts to meet problems head-on. A large portion of that history was in- fluenced by President Webb. l I 2 l 'fic-ezfixj-3, ig, ' 1' x. e .A NJNH Oklahoma's Own l'lenry Bellmon succeeded the honorable George Nigh as the 23rd governor of our state. Gov. Bellmon was born Sept. 3, 1921, on a farm near Tonkawa, Okla. He attended public schools in Noble County and graduated from Billings High School in 1938. He graduated from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Col- lege fnow known as Oklahoma State Universityi in 1942 with a degree in agriculture. He began his political career in 1946 when, at the age of 25, he was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives, where he served through 1949. He became Oklahoma's sixteenth governor in 1963. Bellmon's first gubernatorial administration was well respected for its ability to reform and improve services to Oklahoma citizens. In those days, state law limit- ed governors to one four-year term, so in November 1967, Bellmon ran for the United States Senate and was elected. He was re-elected in 1974. Choosing not to seek re-election in 1980, he retired from the Senate and returned to his farm in 1981. Very few students realized the impact this man had on our system of higher education. His retirement from public service was short. Bellmon was co-founder and served as co-chairman of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. By appoint- ment in 1983, he became director of the Department of Human Services, the state's largest agency. In 1985, he was appointed receiver of the financially troubled Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. He also joined the HAM Group, which assisted financially troubled farmers trying to avoid foreclosures. During World War ll, Bellmon joined the U.S. Marines and served with a tank company for more than three years. He participated in four Pacific battles includ- ing Iwo Jima. Bellmon was presented with the Legion of Merit and Silver Star for his military service. His honors and appointments are too numerous to mention. ln recent years, he has been a professor and lecturer at several state universities. Gov. Bellmon and his' wife Shirley have three daughters. In his spare time, the Governor and his three grandsons keep busy hunting and fishing. Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education Bob F. Allee, joe Gary, Avalon Reese, l.D.

J 235 Jef Closing Psst . . . With the year behind us, we carried our possessions to waiting cars and said our goodbyes. Some felt relief while others shed tears. We made friends and had experiences we would never forget. We remembered late-night cramming sessions, dances in the ballroom, yelling at sporting events and parties. But there was more. We were proud to share our secrets with Oklahoma and the nation. We realized that our university had become something great and we were all a part of that greatness. It was revealed that Green Country had more to offer than natural beauty and historical significance, it also offered one of the finest universities in the state, We knew it all along! Our campus boasts a variety of trees. The approach of winter be- comes obvious as the leaves begin to fall. Students made the most of pleasant autumn days and wore short sleeves for as long as they could. iPhoto - Todd Johnsony The annual NSU Dance Concert provides wholesome entertainment for students and area residents. More than 50 students participated in this year's concert. Displaying top lorm, Kelly Kennedy was all smiles as she made this dance routine look easy. iPhoto - Nicole Hauserj s ,ww Fans remain enthusiastic as the Fledmen make their way to a homecoming victory. After they performed in a spectacular halftime show, NSU Entertainers Alice King and James Hayes joined the rest of the crowd and tried to stay dry as the football game continued. iPhoto - Nicole Hauserj Redmen lootball almost always draws a large crowd. A pep rally was held prior to every game. Cheerleaders and team members used the opportunity to show their appreciation for campus and community sup- port. After enjoying the refreshments, players lounged in the grass and waited for the excitement to begin. iPhoto - Todd Johnsony 3' . QW 4 A -', A iw W' ' ' I - . .

Now that it was all over, it didn't seem like it lasted such a long time after all. Not to worry though for many there was always next year to look foward to. This unidentified student patiently waits with her belongings for someone from home to pick her up. iPhoto - Larry Colliery Our campus is certainly empty during the summer, but there are always those students who attend summer classes. There are, however, a few times during the year when the campus is completely deserted and one of those times is the week of spring break, Stu- dents load their luggage into a bus headed for Daytona Beach, Fla., just one of the spring break trips arranged by the Northeastern Activities Board. iPhoto - Larry Collierl Closing 240 td .S fs iw: Z' ,i fr ,Q Colophon Psst. . . Volume 62 of the Northeastern State University Tsa La Gi Yearbook was designed and prepared by the the 'Isa La Gi staff. We submitted 240 camera-ready pages to the Delmar Company in Charlotte, NC., where 1,800 copies of the yearbook were printed using offset lithography. The news magazine, which also utilizes offset lithography, was printed on cam- pus as a seperate publication and inserted into the yearbook after it was delivered from the printing plant in North Carolina. The paper stock chosen for the book was 80 lb. Westvaco Sterling Enamel, except for the endsheets which are 75 lb. Glacier White. Matte Black lD'28l ink was used for all type and the endsheets utilized Forest Green ID-211 as an additional color Four-color process was used on the first 15 pages of the opening section. The remaining pages were printed in black ink which was accented by the use of various screen tints and rule lines. The cover material chosen was Lexatone grey 841098 with a corduroy grain 41829. The cover design, by editor Paula Hood, was highlighted with green HB-98 foil stamping and accented with blind embossing. The staff would like to thank Jim Howard, vice president for administration, for increasing our budget and allowing us to do the kind of cover we thought would make the yearbook extra special. The final pages were prepared and all typesetting for the book was done on a Compugraphic PowerView 10. The coven the endsheets, the title page, all division pages, the pages of the opening and closing sections and the entire index section utilize Souvenir Italic as the main typestyle. Nash- ville Italic was the main typestyle used in the campus life section, while the academics section made use of Times. The main typestyle chosen for the organizations section and the sports section was University Qoman and for the greeks section, the people section, page numbers and folios we chose Omega as the main typestyle. The news magazine was set in Triumvirate. All body copy and captions were set in Triumviraie, with the exception of the body copy and captions on the division pages which were set in Sou- venir Light. Division page copy was set in 10 pt. type and accented with a 14 pt. initial letter. All other body copy was set in 8 pt. type with a 14 pt. initial letter and captions were set in 6 pt. type with an 8 pt, initial letter All headlines were set in 40 pt. type and all secondary headlines were set in 20 pt. type. Page numbers were set in 12 pt. type and folios were set in 10 pt. type. Most of the photographs were taken by the yearbook staff and supplement- ed with photographs taken by the staff of Photographic Services. More than 2,800 photographs, including portraits, were chosen for use in the year- book. The staff would like to extend a special thanks to Mike Brown, director of Photographic Services, who not only supervised the taking of 1,800 student and faculty portraits, but also did all he could to make our job eaiser The theme for the 1988 Tsa La Gi, 'lIt's No Secret Anymorelf' was found to be appropriate due to the number of students that came from areas outside those in the immediate vicinity. This influx resulted in our school becoming the fastest growing four-year university in the state and reinforced our theme. The staff of the 1988 Tsa La Gi acknowledges the following peopler The Delmar Company Frank Myers and Sherry Brenneman Sports Information Doug Quinn, director and Mike Jones Production Printing Wayne Sturgeon, director Charles Perry, Stuart Woods Mike Allen, Instructional Services Randy Groves and Tim Dorsey, The Northeastern We would like to thank our adviser Sandy Wagner for allowing us to make our own decisions so that we could learn from our mistakes. We would like to extend a very special thank-you to: Kathy Fisher Libby and Terry Osburn Kate Anderson Dr. David Timmons We express our sincerest gratitude to all of these people for their help, support and encouragement throughout the year Without their generosity when it came to sharing knowledge and their willingness to help whenever necessary, the production of this book would have been much more difficult. Tsa La Gi staff Because we put the yearbook together with a very small staff this year it was almost impossible for any one staff member to have a specific title. It was necessary for everyone on staff to perform a variety of jobs, all of which were essential to the completion of the yearbook, I would like to extend thanks to Angela Stovall, Elizabeth Woods and Nicole Hauser I would like to extend a very special thank you to Mltzy Sloan and Darryl Thomas Their willingness to see the book through to the very end, by which time everyone else had lost interest, meant a great deal to me They gave new meaning to the old saying "When the going gets tough, the tough get goingl' Their devotion to producing a quality yearbook went above and beyond the call of duty. VWthout their help completing this project would have been very difficult. I would also like to extend a very special thank you to the spring staff of The Northeastem. Though they had responsibilities of their own, they pitched in and provided much assistance toward the end.
