T f ' •!_ Northeastern: p I SG3. of faces Zany college youths ' LANTS Cgqkies t 17 ' 1 V • m -4 The Twilight Zone or a long five years College. A place to go when you get out of high school. Why Northeastern? Why not? A lot has happened in the past five years at Northeastern. The university became a " good neighbor. " Kenneth Ryder was named the university ' s fourth president. And the blood drive finally caught on. It would be impossible for everything that happened to fit between the covers of this book but perhaps a glance and then a more thorough perusal through the next few pages will help you remember what it was all about five years ago when you began the longest journey. L.A. For love What do you do with a lib- eral arts degree? With today ' s tight job mar- ket, that query has become almost a cliche. Recent liberal arts graduates report employ- ers are looking for people with special skills. Dean of Liberal Arts Robert Shepard confirms this but said a liberal arts degree is still valid. " The problem is, " he says, " that students are conditioned by the notion that you major in something for career prepara- tion. But, that ' s never been the central concept (in liberal arts). " " You major in something because you ' re in love with it! It may or may not coincide with career aspirations. " Shepard admits employers are asking more and more ' what skills do you have? ' but decries this as a " weakness. " " Intellectual development is needed more than specific skills, " he maintains. " A broad liberal arts background gives that kind of intellectual devel- opment. " And co-op is there as a skill- builder for liberal arts stu- dents, adds Shepard. Shepard recommends a regi- men of applied courses and co-op experience for the lib- eral arts student who will later make a foray into the job mar- ket. The College of Liberal Arts in 1975 began an experimental credit for co-op program with eligible biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, earth science and psychology stu- dents. The pilot program, ap- proved in 1974 by a liberal arts faculty committee, will be expended to include other majors if this venture proves successful, said Shepard. Credit for co-op is not free. Students pay the same rates for one co-op term as they pay for one four-credit course, according to Shepard. And, he reports, students aren ' t rushing to participate in the program. " Many students were opposed to the idea. Some say they don ' t consider that (co- op) to be an experience worthy of credit. " The News, in an editorial, blasted co-op credit as " merely an item for sale " called North- eastern an " academic whore- house. " The liberal arts faculty com- mittee on co-op will decide on the program ' s future after making an evaluation in 1977. In other recent develop- ments, liberal arts has started a human services major. A com- bination of social science courses, it also features field experience in welfare, rehabil- itation and corrections. And a music education major may be coming soon, said Shepard. Many new courses have been added to the liberal arts menu. Along with the tradi- tional staples, students can now enjoy Insanity and Litera- ture, Black Nutritional Habits and The Meaning of Death. — Mary Beth Lane Business The money men Two hundred years ago Abe Swartz was opening up his delicatessen in downtown Boston. Such-a-business you have never seen. It was the very first fast food enterprise in the colonies. You could have ridden up on horseback, jumped off your mount, eaten a corn beef on rye and been back on your way, before you can buy books at the bookstore the first week of classes. Unfortunately his two daughters ate up all the inven- tory and the delicatessen went bankrupt within the week. Perhaps if Abe had studied at the Northeastern College of Business Administration he would have been more sue- cessful. The school created an envi- ronment for an individual to learn to think critically. The educational process stressed theoretical and functional backgrounds, and placed a strong emphasis on the profes- sional areas. Students were given expo- sure to the practical experi- ences in business through co- op assignments. In a final effort to round out a student ' s background, there was a strong infusion of the humani- ties and social studies. The business program ' s aim was to allow students to pur- sue professional graduate study, or to be viable well- trained individuals in high demand in the market place. Many students choose Northeastern because it appeared to be the most logical way to approach education. " Instead of hitting the books for nine months and pumping gas over the summer, " said one accounting major, " I received an education that combined classroom knowledge and the practical, that enabled me to better understand the profes- sion I was entering. " Professor Mike Fetters of the accounting department said the environment was a critical aspect in the school ' s educa- tional system. " At Northeast- ern the business student has a unique opportunity to blend practical and academic experi- ences while working toward his undergraduate degree, " he said. The student learned from his and other students ' per- sonal experiences on co-op said Fetters. The combination contributed to the total " edu- cation package that is a tre- mendous aid in a student ' s endeavors to achieve personal goals, " he added. Looking back at the five year investment of time, and the enormous amount of money spent, did the educa- tion received meet your expec- tations? Before answering re- evaluate the alternatives avail- able to you at this time. — Richard Handler Pharmacy and Allied Health Handling health The mid-seventies were a period of growth and expan- sion in public health care as medicare and medicaid extended services to a greater segment of society. Northeastern ' s College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions helped fill the need for qualified professional help. Between 1972 and 1975 enrollments increased 47 per- cent. Women comprised more than half of the college, 749 of the 1373 enrolled. Pharmacy had been an almost totally male-oriented field. However, women became a steadily increasing percentage in the profession. Albert Soloway, dean of the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions said, " We find that the increasing number of women in our classes adds a healthy new perspective to student outlook; in profile, they are a bright group with a high performance record. " As a result of the increased demand for health profession- als, students in this field had generally excellent co-op job opportunities. Co-operative education was ideally suited to the health-rel- ated professions. The applica- tion of classroom theory to reality through on-the-job training was part of the requirements for a degree or certification. Pharmacists received one of the highest starting salaries of all college graduates. Salaries ranged from $12,000 to $20,000. The college was adopting new programs and modifying existing ones as the need arose. Usually pleased by the changes and developments in the health professions, stu- dents sometimes expressed dismay at the frequent changes in the degree require- ments. Mary English, a medical records major, said " I ' d like to see the program be more developed and less haphaz- ard. " " I knew I was interested in medicine but felt too squeam- ish to be a doctor or nurse, " said English. The College of Pharmacy was expanding to meet the broader responsibilities of a pharmacist which went beyond the traditional role of merely distributing drugs. " Pharmacy is undergoing major changes to meet demands in the future, " said Soloway. " Pharmacy in the future will be drastically changed. Pharmacists will really be primary health care units. " The merging in 1971 of the two formerly separate col- leges, pharmacy and allied health helped bridge the com- munications gap between the professions. Allied health offered pro- grams in medical laboratory science, respiratory therapy, medical records administra- tion, dental hygiene, physicial assistance, radiologic technol- ogy management, nursing home administration and hematology. — Theresa Strahan Boston Bouve Still growing In liberal arts, they concen- trate on the mind — the mean- ing of life, the social sciences. In business they deal with the numbers — the costs, the prof- its. But in Boston Bouve College, they work for the body. Physical education, recrea- tion education, physical ther- apy and health education are all part of Boston Bouve. The Boston School of Physi- cal Education was founded in 1913 to train women in physi- cal education. Those women, unlike today ' s student, paid $100 year tuition and a per- centage of their first-year ' s sal- ary after graduation. In 1964, the school became part of Northeastern and was rechristened Boston Bouve. From there it was golden. The only majors available when the school merged with Northeastern were physical education and physical ther- apy. A year later, in 1965, rec- reation education was added and health education came along in 1972. Perhaps one of the most demanding majors in the entire university is physical therapy. Students are pre- pared, through classwork and hospital experience, to work with the physically disabled of all ages in hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes. It ' s tough, demanding and — if you make it — rewarding. Students concentrate on the more liberal arts as well as sci- ences during the first two years and then move on to the more professional courses — anatomy, kinesiology, neurol- ogy, physiology and clinical medicine. Field experience comes in the form of cooperative place- ment in various hospitals, clin- ics and other health institu- tions. Working with the disa- bled, young and old, can be a frustrating, depressing and, fortunately, often happy expe- rience. The job and classwork demand intense concentration, perseverance and drive. Health education majors are concerned with teaching and all levels — with emphasis on drug abuse and use, mental health, aging and health prob- lems. Students in this five-year program work in hospitals and community centers, learning about family and community health problems. Recreation education majors specialize in community recre- ation, therapeutic recreation or outdoor education and con- servation. The program is wide-rang- ing — and includes study in arts and crafts, music, thera- peutic recreation sports, out- door education, school camp- ing and park programming. Students work indoors and out with children and adults in youth agencies, recreation departments, hospitals and other institutions. In addition, students spend time at the university ' s Warren Center, in Ashland, which Dean Catherine Allen calls " an outdoor lab for Boston Bouve College. " The department conducts during the summer a six-week camp for the severely handi- capped, in conjunction with the Easter Seals program. The physical education majors are trained to teach at elementary and secondary lev- els, and may minor in athletic training, coaching, dancing, or the sciences. They also spend time at Ashland, and in their senior year are assigned to various student teaching positions in schools in the Boston area. Boston Bouve has changed with the times, according to Dean Allen. An associate degree was established in therapeutic rec- reation for nursing home directors, and was run out of University and Lincoln Col- leges. A part-time master ' s pro- gram in physical education and recreation education in 1970. The growth has been enor- mous — 10 graduates in 1915, and 1500 last year. Health and recreation edu- cation have become increas- ingly attractive to incoming freshmen, and physical ther- apy and physical education continue to grow. — Mary Concannon Education Changes In the past five years, there have been three basic changes in the College of Education: enrollment has progressively decreased, students now have a wider choice among required electives, and there appears to be a changing atti- tude among students and fac- ulty. Prof. John Herzog cited the following statistics showing the declining enrollment: undergraduate membership in 1971 was 1238, and in 1975 was 744; and the number of enroll- ing freshmen in the same period decreased by more than 50 per cent, from 330 to 160. While enrollment in the col- lege has continually declined, there has been a steady increase in the distribution of students in various majors and concentrations. In 1971, 86 percent of the college ' s population was enrolled in teacher training programs. The remaining 14 percent was in speech and hearing. By 1975, only 34 per- cent was enrolled in teacher training programs, while 33 percent was in speech and hearing. Growing in popularity was the special education concen- tration, involving 28 percent of the college ' s enrollment. This concentration began in 1972. The Human Services Department was created in 1974 and by the next fall five percent of the college ' s stu- dents were in this major, and the majority of them were freshmen. The college ' s declining enrollment is primarily a direct result of the nation ' s economic situation, according to Dean Frank Marsh. Associate Dean Charles Haley supported this, saying that the economy forced a need for specialization, which provides students with " that extra edge " in a tight job mar- ket. In addition, Haley said, public schools ' population has decreased and there is there- fore less of a demand for teachers. The changing enrollment patterns resulted in the forma- tion of two new concentra- tions within the elementary education major: special edu- cation and early childhood. The former became an ele- mentary education concentra- Dean Frank Marsh tion in 1972, and Chairman Matt Luzzi indicates that this concentration is partially in response to the passage of the state ' s Chapter 766, a law forc- ing the public schools to meet the needs of learning disabled students. The law brought about a suddenly greater need for teachers specializing in this field. The early childhood concen- tration was formed in this period, under Chairman Mary Lee. A unique major was estab- lished in 1974 — human ser- vices. This major combines courses from the Colleges of Education, Liberal Arts and Criminal Justice. Director Barbara Schram said that the major explores behavioral sciences and offers students a variety of humanis- tic courses, attracting those who wish to work with people. The establishment of these new majors and concentra- tions indicate that the College of Education is no longer just a teacher training center but now involves a variety of applications within the field of education. In addition to enrollment and study changes, there has been a shift in faculty and stu- dent attitudes. Professors seem to be getting more involved and students less involved with college activities. Marsh suggested that the faculty is more willing to use a broader definition of educa- tion, because of the economy and the teachers ' own profes- sional growth. According to Haley, more professors realized that pass- fail courses might benefit the students and that the students themselves initiated the avail- ability of pass-fail courses. Professor Wendell Brown commented that there is more informality within the class- room and that the emphasis has switched from structure set by faculty to student initia- tive. During the 1971-75 period, the general student attitudes altered. Students are not as active in voicing their con- cerns. Many students need to work part-time to meet rising tuition costs and consequently they aren ' t becoming as involved with college activities as did students in the 60s and early 70s. Students who took part in the anti-war and Dow Chemi- cal protests are now faculty members and there is more sympathy for college students, which may also account for " gradeflation " — receiving higher grades for lower per- formance. Haley suggested, " Students have withdrawn from an active college life involvement, not because of a lack of com- mitment, but because of their need for employment. Stu- dents are looking inward, at their own needs, rather than at the ills of society. " — Larry Joseph Engineering A Al C " Contrary to a general pub- lic conception, a serious short- age of engineers is developing in this country. " The New York Times March 11, 1973. The picture hasn ' t changed. The 1976 engineering graduate can look forward to a fairly open job market — a market that has been increasing by approximately 40,000 openings every year, according to a U.S. Labor department study. ical society said the introduction of the unspecified degree allows a student to earn a degree with- out stating a specific branch of engineering. This gives the stu- dent more flexibility in choos- ing his or her course of study. The unspecified BS program allows a student to design his own program with the aid of an advisor, with about 50 per- cent elective, including courses outside of the College of Engineering. Due to today ' s stress on con- serving our country ' s natural Because of this growing trend and the move toward a more technological society, this year ' s engineering major has had more freedom in choosing courses and degrees than did their predecessors five years before. This is espe- cially true for the Northeastern student. The introduction of an unspecified degree, an envi- ronmental engineering option in civil engineering, the reduc- tion of the number of quarter hours and changes in co-op policy occurred during the last five years. Dr. Melvin Mark, dean of the College of Engineering, resources, the civil engineering department added an environ- mental engineering option which places a strong environ- mental component in the cur- riculum. Courses included in the new major were water sup- ply treatment and waste water disposal, and air pollution. These courses were added to supplement the department ' s other concentrations in trans- portation, structural engineer- ing, solid mechanics and foun- dation engineering. The number of quarter hours needed to be spent in class to obtain a degree was reduced 10 percent so that today ' s graduate needed only 180 quarter hours. At the same time the quality point average (QPA) needed for graduation was raised from 1.8 in 1970 to 2.0 with required courses in 1975. Lincoln College, strictly an} evening college in the past, was placed under the Dean of Engineering and day classes instituted recently. Two new programs were offered in engi- neering technology. These pro- grams involve more laboratory work and application techni- ques involving practical work rather than the theoretical, arithmetical and scientific j background. Co-op has also given stu- dents a look at the more practi- cal, everyday use of engineer- ing. Many practices within the; structure of the engineering co-op have changed recently to allow more freedom of choice in the selection of 1 assignments. In the early 1970 ' s, the co-op department would send one candidate to interview for one job. Now if there are three jobs and three candidates, all or the candidates interview for each of the positions, thereby giving both companies and students more of a choice. The co-op department also offered a career development course which prepared stu- dents for graduation, while the senior placement service has expanded their offerings to include a series of seminars on , interviews, resume writing, graduate school and job search techniques. Northeastern is also encour- aging engineering students to take the sequence of steps needed to become a registered professional engineer. Mark believed that North- eastern provides an excellent foundation for entering the engineering profession or for using technical knowledge in other careers. " In a complex society your engineering education may well become the true liberal education of the future. " — Jay Collins College for cops Yes, cops are getting an edu- cation. " Until ten years ago, no one thought seriously of educating police or correction people, " says Norman Rosenblatt, dean of the College of Criminal Jus- tice. Things are changing. Under- graduate enrollment in the col- lege now numbers about 1800 students, with some 200 in the graduate program. And female enrollment is climbing. The class of 1980 includes 352 women, the larg- est female group so far. " Now, the whole thing with the women ' s movement is bringing more women into it (the college), " says Robert Croatti, assistant to the dean of criminal justice. " Yes, women can do it! " The college was established in 1966 under a grant from the Ford Foundation. " It ' s constantly growing and expanding, " says Rosenblatt. " I ' d thought it would level off, but. . . " Areas of specialization for criminal justice majors include corrections, rehabilitation, law enforcement and court work. And criminal justice co-op students can land jobs as police dispatchers, law firm messengers and investigative trainees in federal agencies, according to Kathi Kalliel, assistant co -op coordinator. Some students were report- edly unhappy with co-op jobs as department store security guards. " With CJ being a relatively new degree, employers aren ' t sure where to put a CJ major, " Kalliel concedes. " (And) the job market is tight, no ques- tion. We ' re having problems getting tremendously satisfy- ing jobs for all students. " Rosenblatt lauds co-op as a Dean Norman Rosenblatt healthy dose of realism for the student attracted to the " glam- our " of police work. Merely the stench of a dank prison cell is often enough to dissuade a student from the field, he says. A " best in the country " tag for the college of criminal jus- tice has often been bandied about. Rosenblatt demurs gently, but. stresses the college ' s well- known faculty and interna- tional reputation. — Mary Beth Lane CAMPUS POLICE Nursing Angels of m ercy The days of Florence Nigh- tingale are long gone. Today ' s nurses need more than a strong stomach and a good dose of mercy. Training and experience — especially the latter — are prerequisites in a field that demands much from the nurse. " At other schools, the stu- dents might work for years and never work on a real per- son, " said Mary Flynn, the col- lege ' s co-op coordinator. " Here they get experience. " The College of Nursing was established in 1964, with a three-year associate degree program designed to prepare the beginning nurse to provide care in a variety of patient sit- uations, said Dean Juanita Long. Two years later, in 1966, a five-year baccalaureate pro- gram, complete with co-op, was begun. This program was founded to provide nurses with basic training plus the tools for future advancement through experience and gradu- ate study for such things as clinical nursing, administra- tion, research or teaching. Baccalaureate candidates begin receiving clinical experi- ence in their second year, while associates begin imme- term, for nurses whose previ- ous training and experience enable them to complete the program in two years. The first class of qualified registered nurses was admitted in 1974 and these students, said Long, complete their degree requirements in one year. The nurse practitioner pro- gram — nurses presently employed in ambulatory pediatric health care centers — was also begun. This course, lasting 16 weeks, accommodated a limited num- ber of students. An open curriculum pro- gram was begun this year, where students in both degree majors follow the same course of studies for the freshman year and then opt for either the three- or five-year program. All programs have shown increasing enrollments, said Long, and some students must be turned away from the vari- ous programs. Nursing has changed in another way besides the increasing demand for training and experience. The nurse at your hospital bedside may not look anything like the Clara Bartons or yest- eryear — as few of those diately. In 1970, the college opened a limited licensed practical nurse program in the associate women wore pants and a full- length beard. Men have entered the pro- fession in increasing numbers, The new breed and last year, the baccalau- reate program boasted 33 male nurses. " I think the men like nursing partly because the field is so wide open, " said Barbara Madden, R.N., M.S., an instructor in the department. " You sometimes find a kind of reverse prejudice. Since they (the men) are in such demand, they can often rise quickly to the top, especially in administration. ' Dave Wilson 80N, a former sociology major, left Colby College and . . . " I worked in a nursing home for three months ana I got along really well with the old folks, " he said. " Then I was an orderly at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford. I really liked it, so I decided to become a nurse. " In 1975, the baccalaureate program was accepted by Sigma Theta Tau, Inc., the national honor society of nurs- ing. Nurses are expanding their roles, according to Prof. Bar- bara Goodfellow. " We are now able to provide better nursing service by meet- ing the needs of those who have not been reached before. The nurse clinician and nurse practitioner provide entrance into the health care system for people in areas such as the inner city and rural America with an inadequate number of physicians, " she explained. — Kevin Hagen Dormitories The good life Dormitories; those institu- tions that tucked students into cubicles like shoes into boxes on the shelves of a shoestore, like books on the library shelves, or like the files in a fil- ing cabinet. ... At 7:15 a.m. Ann Con- nolly shuffles down the hall (48 steps) to the bathroom. Four minutes later, she emerges, walks down the hall and into the lobby (212 steps). Here she picks up the morning Globe and proceeds down the cafeteria stairs (150 steps). It ' s Wednesday morning and she has her usual breakfast: french toast, orange juice and coffee. After glancing through the paper and gulping down the liquid speed, she returns her tray (23 steps) and heads for class (358 steps). Living in the dorms may not have been the most comforta- ble of lifestyles but it had advantages. Ann spends on the average, about five minutes of her morning in getting to class. Riding the subway with good connections took at least half an hour, if the subway was running. Driving to school could have taken a half an hour just to find a parking space after the destination was reached, not to mention the cost of the parking sticker. Living in the dorms was probably the best way to get to know some of your 20,000 fel- low students. Students were away from their natural habi- tats and did not have old friends to fall back on. Classes at Northeastern were large and impersonal. As Diane Rubin said, " You ' re forced to make friends in order to survive. " And the dorms were a sure place to make friends. The new resident was imme diately confronted with another displaced student — the roommate. The newcomer met someone else in the same boat as him. Alone, in a new strange place, with no friends. The dormitories were a big part of college life. Just from seeing the same faces in the hallways, lobbys and bath- rooms many friends were made. Day in and day out, eating the same cafeteria ' food ' gave students a common ground with every student they met. Everyone complained about the food. Complaints aside, a sense of security was enjoyed in knowing there was always coffee and orange juice for the morning. Also students did not have to do the dishes or empty the garbage like at home. New innovations in the dorms were very popular. In 1975 both Speare and White Halls were co-ed, segregated by sections and floors of the buildings. For the first time all dormi- tories had 24-hour parietals. Co-ed dorms were not the only popular habitats on cam- pus. The housing office had over 300 names on waiting lists for the dormitories. This phenomenon was not confined to Northeastern. " Newsweek " magazine re- ported a national trend of stu- dents returning to the dorms in thousands. Soaring inflation and tight job market were cited as the major reasons for the new trend. At Northeastern some stu- dents wanted to get back to the security of the dorms. Guarded by university police in blue cruisers, foot patrols, and proctors 24-hours a day the dorms were relatively safe. Other reasons students returned to the dorms were the advantages of paying rent for a quarter and not being involved with leases or security depos- its. Students did not have to pay rent while on co-op out of state and did not have to find someone to replace their share of the rent. Aside from social and eco- nomics of college and dorm life the dormitories provided the basics: garbage collection, toilet paper, and a crew of cleaners to keep the bath- rooms sparkling and the hall- ways polished. . . . Wednesday night Ann swims with the women ' s swim club. After dinner she goes over to the pool (258 steps), swims and then heads for the library to study. An hour later Ann yawns, closes her books, leaves the quad, crosses Huntington Ave- nue and completes the 232 steps home. — Teresa Strahan mt aiii ' « w ii The good, the had, the ugly Beer showers, peanut butter doorknobs, something called NU PU PU platter, and of course the ever present " asshole " roommate are just several of the events, happen- ings and catastrophes that con- stitute life in the men ' s dormi- tory. Having spent several months in some of the school ' s more luxurious residences, we ' d like to describe, (not prefers chocolate covered tuna fish and Gatorade. . . . Returning from your first weekend home to find your belongings and furniture have been removed from the room, while your roommate calmly denies anything is missing. . . .

Winter All the comforts A room of your own Fraternities On the way back The Class of ' 44 knew how to have fun. They wore little beanies and held secret initia- tions. All across the country the really " in " people were in fraternities and sororities. But as the years passed the trends changed with the times. A new awareness and activism made for fewer and fewer pledges and the Greek custom went the way of their fore- bearers. Just as quickly as activism came, it left. With its passing came an increased interest in the fraternal community. Between 1969 and 1972, Northeastern ' s Tau Epsilon Pi, Delta Sigma Theta and Rho Pi The old days Phi folded due to lack of inter- est by their membership. In 1973 however, the trend changed. While six of the founding fraternities have celebrated their fiftieth anniversaries in the last five years, several new fraternities opened including a very active Iota Phi Theta. One of the major reasons for the revived interest has been that with the cost of living ris- ing faster than co-op salaries, frat houses offered congenial, comfortable and inexpensive homes away from home. Unfortunately 1973 and 1974 saw disaster for many houses. In 1973 Tau Kappa Epsilon lost their house in a fire while Phi Kappa Tau and Alpha Epsilon Pi vacated their houses because of a decline in mem- bership. Shortly thereafter, Sigma Alpha Mu, Phi Beta Alpha and Delta Chi were evicted from their St. Stephen Street houses because of improper zoning. Several groups have now retreated to the suburbs including Phi Sigma Kappa, Alpha Kappa Sigma, Phi Beta Alpha, Nu Epsilon Zeta and Phi Gamma Pi of Jamaica Plain and Brookline. Sororities at Northeastern were never permitted to own houses. Perhaps, it is because of this that most of them have dissolved. Alpha Sigma Tau, Alpha Kappa Alpha, and Delta Phi Epsilon were joined by Omega Sigma recently. Economic reasoning aside, fraternities are still basically social in nature. At one time, Friday night frat parties were anticipated weekly by the 18 to 21 set, but with the lowering of the legal drinking age and the rising cost of alcoholic bever- ages these galas have faded but are not yet gone. In 1973 Sigma Alpha Mu accepted the first female pledges but the trend hasn ' t caught on, as Sammy ' s remains the only co-ed frater- nity. While most fraternities have a tradition of pranks and par- ties, they have also been an addition to the community by doing things such as having Christmas parties for orphans and raising money for the needy. One fraternity, Gamma Phi Kappa, established a scholar- ship fund for the benefit of non-members in 1972. Despite the shift in emphasis from partying to community service, the fraternity experi- ence seems to be returning to many college campuses. At Amherst College over half of the student population now belongs to the Greek com- munity. University of Califor- nia at Berkeley, seed bed of the radical movements of the early ' 70 ' s, is considering several petitions for new fraternities, and at other universities across the country pledging has gone up 50 per cent since 1970. Maybe dad ' s raccoon coat can come out of mothballs soon and goldfish will again be a delicacy. Too bad we missed it. — Adam Sadlowski — Maxine MacPherson Remember when Remember way back when in the late 50 ' s and early 60 ' s when school spirit was " the thing, " Wo Wo Ginsberg was a rising radio jock, and Buddy Holly ' s " Peggy Sue " was at the top of the charts. Well times have changed. Back then students joined clubs and activities to have a good time and promote school spirit. Students of the 70 ' s were into doing their own thing. They were more con- cerned with grades, and their careers than joining various clubs, said Christopher Ken- nedy, dean of students. " Total participation has declined, " he said. " In the 60 ' s student activities were consid- ered as important as classes. " Now there are many small clubs, religious organizations and cultural groups on campus Kennedy added. " Due to the lack of total involvement in one activity or activities, stu- dent activities on the whole are weaker. " I feel something has gone from college life when there isn ' t time to sit back and have fun. There are still parties and dances but it is not the same thing, " said Kennedy. Richard Sochacki, director of the student center agrees. " Students are no longer interested in fun and games. They are more concerned with their future, " he said. Whatever was going on there was a lot of it. Clubs like Hillel, the Arabic Club and the Haitian Society offer students a chance to learn more about various cul- tures and customs. Organizations like the Gay Student Organization (GSO) and the Students International Meditation Society (SIMS) were establishing themselves on a campus that several years ago would have shyed away from such groups. While new clubs were get- ting themselves together the old standbys were still around " struggling, " sometimes for survival. Organizations like the Stu- dent Union continued to run the various fun contests like ice cream eating, or Mr. Husky but at the same time became more service oriented with the continuation of UNICOM and the support of a counseling organization — Ellipsis. The Union also added a quarterly blood drive to their repertoire. Service was the name of their game. The Student Federation on the other hand was as always fighting to be respected. Origi- nally known as the Student Council the group reorganized in an effort to be " a more responsible and relevant gov- ernment. " Unfortunately in the reorganizing process the group tended to forget who and what it was supposed to be repre- senting and for-the-most-part became so involved with inter- nal squabbles that the federa- tion often appeared to be fal- tering on the brink of failure. Social Council was busy try- ing to give the students some " culture. " They offered vari- ous films, speakers and con- certs but unfortunately the council ' s tastes weren ' t the same as the rest of the stu- dents. Concerts rarely made much money and the council members usually ended up wondering what went wrong and promising that next time they would try harder. Musical organizations like the Band, Orchestra, and the Early Music players continued to bring culture to the campus. The groups gave concerts for little or no cost to the students and who knows maybe a little musical appreciation did reach the ears of the masses. WRBB, the campus radio station, continued to broaden its programming to attract the potential music lover. The sta- tion offered assorted soul and rock programs and in the fall of 1975 inaugurated a nightly news show. At 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, WRBB ' s new team offered the news, weather, and sports for those students who wanted to know what was going on in the world. The News, the campus ' first student newspaper, continued to come out every week despite cries of misquote, inclement weather, and exams. The Hus-skiers and Outing Club ignored all the cries of apathy and took off for the weekend to their lodge in New Hampshire. The Student Center mem- bership was continuing to change. The Onyx, the first black student paper on campus, moved from the Institute on Leon Street to join the rest of the students in the Ell Center. For those students that did not belong to a particular club and didn ' t have a local hang- out the basement rathskeller offered a place to sit, quench the thirst, and enjoy the 3 p.m. soap opera. The rathskeller, originally proposed by the Student Cen- ter Committee in 1969, was built in the summer of 1975 despite complaints from some students that the money could be used in other ways. Not asthetically gorgeous in the beginning plans were in the offing to make the place more attractive and conducive to drinking and relaxing. Perhaps the school spirit of the 50 ' s and 60 ' s could be found in the rathskeller over a few beers. Anyway, no matter what your particular interest or con- cern Northeastern attempted to offer it. — Mary Concannon fun and games gr Jh mm Est UIIBh Hk . BtI ! f|: B-- ■- ' ■■MmW.

Marvin Walker Iota Phi Theta Omicron Chapter As a black attending North- eastern, it has been an unusu- ally fine opportunity for me to become closely familiar with the Staff of the African-Ameri- can Institute and discern for myself what has been accom- plished over the past five years. Surely, their philoso- phies are being postively rein- forced by an explosion of col- lective programs for black stu- dents here and in the Boston black community. Viewing the Institute from a black perspective, we rely on the dedication of its staff, who are the most auspicious black professionals any university has had the privilege to employ. There are a great deal of programs that have progressed in just a few years, namely, the Opening Afro-American Studies pro- gram, the tutorial program, counseling, Project UJIMA, and most recently the Amilcar Cabral Student Center located on the Institute ' s first floor. Many other viable projects associated with the Institute; are; the Onyx newspaper, black dance classes, Health Careers club and Student Grill. The Institute also houses a library, which serves North- eastern ' s black students and blacks in the Boston commu- nity. The Institute has developed profound philosophies the most primary being academic excellence. The Institute is regarded as a superlative place, surpassing its own time in progression. The Institute has recreated the black student at Northeast- ern and formed one whose basic aims are to contribute positive action for universal peace. The Institute is there for blacks studying in Boston, such an enriched experience can only take place while attending Northeastern and being involved with the Afri- can-American Institute. The African- American Insti- tute holds a continuous pro- gression as it ensures the essentials for the black stu- dents at Northeastern. It retains the basic enrichment in all areas. Yes, excellence can only continue. Come let ' s seek that genuine image of trust that reflects in all of us. — Francenia R. LeGrand The African-American Insti- tute was originally founded in the fall of 1969 as the Afro- American Institute. Since those early days when black awareness began its emer- gence on Northeastern ' s cam- pus, as well as on many other campuses across the country, the goals, commitments and philosophy of the " tute " have continued to be redefined, res- tated, and refined. Dean Gregory Ricks, his staff and the student commu- nity are still about the business of making life at Northeastern a more meaningful experience for black people. As of June 1, 1976, the Insti- tute will acquire a new direc- tor as Ricks will have resigned from the position. At press time an extensive search was being conducted in order to find someone capable of following the outstanding performance of Ricks. Yvette Tinnermon, formerly Coordi- nator of Special Programs is assuming the position of Assistant Director, thus hoping to make the forthcoming trans- ition a smoother one. The future of the Institute depends on many factors, but most of all, it depends on peo- ple — black people who are concerned with its preserva- tion, not merely as a show- piece, but rather as an influen- tial agent on this campus. Under the progressive direc- tion of Ricks, the Institute has seen major accomplishments during the past few years. His guidance will be sorely missed. Highlights of Administration Under Dean Gregory T. Ricks: 1972 • Student support for Ricks and his new staff was shown at the First Fresh- man Banquet. • Development of the Onyx newspaper under the edi- torship of Ted Thomas. • Headline printed in The Onyx in November, " Southern University, Today, Northeastern Uni- versity, Tomorrow? " Student demonstration — major impetus for the establishment of the Afri- can American Studies Department (AASD). 1973 First Annual Award and Unity Banquet speaker, Rev. John Bryant. Ricks receives plaque from the Black Student Congress in appreciation for his efforts at the Institute. First student leadership conference at Packard Manse, Stoughton, Mass. Black student leaders came together to examine their past and chart their future. Accreditation of the Afri- can American Student Department actual fund- ing and implementation. The AASD moved into its own facility. Ramona Edelin was selected as the first black chairperson of an aca- demic department at Northeastern; namely the AASD. The university accepted the proposal for the estab- lishment of Project Ujima. 1974 Second annual award and unity banquet. The honor- able Julian Bond was the speaker, and awards were presented to outstanding students. Hiring of co-op coordina- tor for minority affairs by the co-op department. Changing the name of the Institute from " Afro " to " African " due to a student referendum. The establishment of the Amilcar Cabral Center at the Institute. A program was developed and imple- mented to build unity on campus by and for the students. The number of black stu- dents continuing on to graduate school increased significantly. Gregory Ricks • The hiring of Dr. Stanlake Samkange as the first black full professor with tenure. • A student demonstration results in positive improvements for black students, campus secu- rity, the Dean of Students office, and community development. 1975 • Establishment of Dana Chandler as artist-in-resi- dence. Third Annual Award and Unity Ban- quet. Mrs. Vinnie Bur- rows presented the Distin- guished Service Awards to people who had sup- ported or contributed to the development of the Institute. • Ricks receives award from student body for his commitment as director of the Institute. • Ricks presents degrees at the June Commencement to the largest minority graduation class in the history of Northeastern. 1976 • The selection of six Afri- can American students to participate in " Crossroads Africa " this summer. Yvette Tinnermon Yvette G. Tinnermon, Coor- dinator of Special Programs, is responsible for the operational policies of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Achievement Awards, the tutorial program and the evening courses. Among Tinnermon ' s most important duties is assuring the provision of tutoring for students in areas where assist- ance is essential. Robert J. Anderson Robert J. Anderson, assist- ant to the director, is the first contact with students who come to the administrative component of the Institute and is the articulator of policy. In addition to his role, Anderson is responsible for administra- tion of policy for all Institute programs in the director ' s absence. Michele Jones All financial and budgetary matters are handled by Mic- helle Jones, the Institute ' s Bus- iness Manager. She expedites Institute financial business, combining this with her duties of placing all work-study and co-op students employed by the Institute, and manages the payroll. Mildred Hughes Mildred Hughes, the insti- tute ' s receptionist, greets visi- tors when they arrive and directs them to the proper individuals. She also provides for duplicating services, han- dles all incoming telephone calls, and is a source of general information on the regular functions of the Institute ' s pro- grams. Counseling The Counseling Department of the African-American Insti- tute provides supportive coun- seling services in many areas. The department hopes to solve at least the most severe prob- lems students may encounter concerning grades, social life and job possibilities. Counselors assist students in selecting graduate programs and schools catering to their expressed needs and goals. In addition, the counselors serve as advisors to student and professional organiza- tions, and as liaisons to vari- ous university departments and offices. Since success in counseling depends upon a reciprocity reached only on a one-to-one ratio, students are encouraged to visit their coun- selors on a regular basis. Willa Burnett Screening students to find out what problems they have and directing them to the appropriate counselor are a small part of Willa Burnett ' s duties as Administrative Assistant in Counseling. She also supervises work-study and co-op students, and han- dles all administrative and clerical functions in the department. Diane Harper Diane Harper, Freshman Aca- demic Counselor, is responsible for providing supportive counsel- ing services for African-Ameri- can and other minority students in three specific areas: academic, personal, and career counseling. Harper is advisor to the student and professional organizations; serves as liaison between the uni- versity and community, develop- ing special projects for freshmen; and aids the university in its recruitment policies of minority students. The Library Verdaya Brown As head librarian, Verdaya Brown is responsible for administrative and academic duties. She is committed to serving the students and the larger Boston black commu- nity. By providing materials which encompass a broad spectrum of the black experi- ence students are prepared more adequately to deal with themselves and their life ' s work. Alleavious Hill As assistant to the librarian, Alleavious Hill ' s chief respon- sibility is to assure there is coverage at the library circula- tion desk and stack areas to answer reference questions. Project Ujima Project Ujima is an intensive study program for incoming freshmen whose secondary education failed to provide a Alonzo Speight Alonzo R. Speight is the director of Project Ujima Pro- gram. He outlines and estab- lishes specific program con- tent, and makes policy recom- mendations to promote and improve the program. sufficient foundation for col- lege level studies. It is also for those whose innate ability to excel has not been developed. Motivated by a concern for the very large number of black students rejected from college, as well as those accepted despite poor preparation, the Institute initiated this compen- satory program. Assessments of the skills- needs of the Project Ujima stu- dents are made at the start of the program, and resources are recommended to each student. Resources offered include tutorials, noncredit intern- ships, tests and examinations, learning exercises, field trips, lectures, and study groups. In addition to the resources above, a number of helping relationships are established with the students which rein- force the development of self motivation in Project Ujima students. Dottrice McPherson Administrative Secretary of Project Ujima, Dottrice McPherson assists the director in preparing the annual budget and special projects. She assists students by providing information, making appoint- ments and referring telephone calls to appropriate individu- als. Cabral Center Janice Bell The original focus of my job evolved from the belief that the black students at North- eastern needed to create a social and political organiza- tion of unity and strength on campus. Time eventually indi- cated that a black student organization was the concern of only a handful of brothers and sisters. Thus, my role has turned to the original purpose defined by the position " cultural coor- dinator. " The recent commit- ment of additional funds for the Amilcar Cabral Center (the first floor of the Institute) has now made it possible for the Center to present cultural pro- grams and experiences that are relevant to the spirit and needs of students of African descent. As Coordinator of the Center, I depend on the ideas and support of the brothers and sisters whose love and energies sustain the activities of the Center and the Institute. Above all, I see my role as one of interaction with stu- dents; an ongoing exchange of feelings and ideas which ulti- mately lead me and the stu- dents to higher levels of under- standing and productive con- sciousness. The Onyx As Northeastern Universi- ty ' s only regular black student publication, the Onyx has a pre-established goal: to pro- vide black students at North- eastern with information vital to their survival in a predomi- nantly white environment. The paper ' s objective is pur- sued monthly via: news arti- cles about the black struggles on the international, national and local levels; features reflecting the concerns of blacks throughout the world; and editorials which attempt to enlighten black students to racial injustices and matters of concern. The aim of this enlightenment is to motivate blacks to align themselves with positive, constructive means for achieving desired goals for blacks as an oppressed group. The Onyx was first estab- lished in 1972 by a small group of students who recognized the importance of and neces- sity for a newspaper directed exclusively to black students. Soul ' s Place WRBB ' s Rhythm and Blues program, Soul ' s Place, has been in existence now for four years. It was started in 1971 by James Martin, Michael Wil- liams, and Rupert Margethson. The original membership of three has grown to thirty mem- bers that work under a seven- day-a-week schedule. The program consists of many areas of music including Black Classical, Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, and Reggae. The program in past years has given tributes to Joan Little and the Dr. Kenneth Edelin defense funds, and sponsored a Kwanza party where can goods were collected and given to various community agencies for distribution to needy families. Our goal is to promote awareness, education, and to communicate an increasing understanding of all. Ebony The Ebony Athletic Associa- tion was founded two years ago by black students in an effort to pull together the ath- letic talent which abounds on campus. Ebony has been very suc- cessful. The division has won championships in the Boston Parks and Recreation and Columbia Point basketball leagues, and Northeastern ' s intramural football and bas- ketball leagues. Omega Psi Phi The Omega Psi Phi Frater- nity was founded in 1911 by Professor Ernest Just. The four ideals Omega upholds are; Manhood, Scholarship, Per- severance, and Uplift. The Gamma chapter of Omega Psi Phi was established in 1916 in Boston, Mass. It was the first black fraternal organi- zation for undergraduates in Boston. Gamma chapter maintains an active and prestigious his- tory to the present. Iota Iota Phi Theta fraternity was formed and organized in the spring of 1973. Although it is the youngest fraternity on campus, we are proud of the fact that we have the largest membership. Iota strives for unity and that ideal is especially con- veyed to its pledges. Scholar- ship is stressed for academic excellence is seen as an impor- tant means of achieving goals. Delta Sigma Delta Sigma Theta, Inc., was founded in 1913 at Harvard University. The founders envi- sioned an organization of col- lege women pledged to serious endeavor and community service. Their public service pro- gram centers around the areas of Educational, Economic, Community, International, Housing, Urban, and Mental Health Development. There are presently 600 chapters with over 80,000 members in forty-nine states and the republics of Haiti, Liberia, and the Virgin Islands. Deltas in Boston belong to the city-wide Iota chapter. Mem- bers come from many schools in the Boston area. Among them four attend Northeast- ern. AKA The sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded in 1908 and was the first black female Greek letter organization. Some of the sorority ' s national programs are: Schol- arship and Travel Grants, Negro Heritage, Social Action, Job Corps, Leadership School, Federal Information and Pro- jects, and Career Guidance. In 1974 the Iota Gamma Chapter was chartered at Northeastern and it grew through the efforts of fifteen members. Some past and ongoing serv- ice projects have been con- cerned with voter registration, the Teen Education Center, St. Monica ' s Nursing Home, the Edelin-Little Defense Fund, and book vouchers for needy students at Northeastern. They have also been involved with the Big Sister Association. Black Engineers The Black Engineering Stu- dents Society was formed to cater to the interests of black engineering students on cam- pus. All the areas taught at the university are represented in the society. The membership carries on a number of self-help activities such as: tutorial, projects and counselling in the prospective areas of engineering concen- tration. Some of its members visit area high schools to encourage and inform second- ary education graduates on the field of engineering and its prospects for minorities. TPT Together Phi Together is a social organization that was formed by eighteen dedicated brothers in 1975. Their goal was to develop an atmosphere in which young men and women could unite their many talents in bettering the univer- sity and surrounding commu- nity. In their less than one year existence on campus, the group has had a variety of suc- cessful activities and charita- ble events. At present Together Phi Together is enlarging their social and scholastic activities The African-American Studies are profoundly inter- ested in contributing more black scholars to the world. Nevertheless, the educational concepts of making precise, and of self-defining, the cul- ture and philosophies, contrib- utions and socio-economic realities of ethnic groups can lend itself to new curricular approaches and goals, as well as continuing the important old ones. The goal is to make the edu- cations of aspiring profession- als in all career areas suit their intention to fulfill black needs in these areas. The major in African- Amer- ican Studies is designed to fit the pattern of other majors and programs offered by me col- lege of Liberal Arts. Students in a hope to be of greater usage to the Boston area and College Community. Alkebu-Lan The student organization of Alkebu-Lan was established as a result of a leadership confer- ence held in September 1974. The purpose of the conference was to discuss and institute programs to unite black stu- dents and their organizations. The conference yielded a stu- dent government that would cater to the needs and wants of the African-American commu- nity of Northeastern. The objectives are to estab- lish and promote unity among students of African descent, provide for the common wel- fare of people of African descent, ensure academic excellence and political rele- vance. It will strive to inform students of African descent of the issues which affect them and the community as a whole, and to establish a rep- resentative medium for the expression of the wills and desires of students and pro- vide a mechanism for imple- menting any necessary changes. Health Careers The Health Careers Club Black Studies will be able to select the major in African-American Studies at any time from the Freshman to Middler year. With careful supervision from the students ' counselor, programs of study which best suit the students ' goals will be developed. Ramona Edelin Ramona Edelin serves as department chairperson. She handles all responsibilities for curricular, budgetary, admin- istrative and environmental concerns of the department. Her duties involve public rela- tions activities within the uni- versity and outside the univer- sity. Edelin is also involved with Material written and compiled by fames Martin, Barron Cox and Anthony Graham evolved from a collective of black health professional aspi- rants sharing a frustrating experience in pursuing health careers. The club is committed to effectuating peer counseling, peer tutoring and a clearing house of information related to allied health professions. Another major thrust of the Health Careers Club is to coor- dinate various social functions akin to this area of interest for example, lectures, seminars, field trips, symposiums and such. Student Grill The Student Grill is the result of a cooperative effort on the part of the Institute and interested students to provide low-cost food concessions. During the years, the grill has proven to be very success- ful, attracting many new stu- dents to the Amilcar Cabral Center, managing to maintain a balanced budget at no profit, and providing both co-op and work-study jobs for many stu- dents. The Grill is managed and operated completely by stu- dents and offers a varied selec- tion of popular, short order foods. the constant evaluation of uni- versity policy towards black students, maintaining local and national ties with the other departments of African- American Studies, in an effort to increase effectiveness as educational units. Valerie Minor Valerie Minor is assistant to the Chairperson and is respon- sible for monitoring classes, keeping records of informa- tion pertaining to instructors, and initiating advertisement for all African-American Stud- ies programs. She types and duplicates examinations, schedules courses and sequences. Minor also acts as a liaison between the depart- ment, other offices and depart- ments, as well as with the stu- dents. Silver Masque Behind the Green Room Guys and Dolls " Anyone Can Whistle " New York has its Sardi ' s, Hollywood its Brown Derby and Northeastern has the Green Room . . . hangout of the theatrical. The Silver Masque Society is Northeastern ' s only extra- curricula theatre activity. Drama majors abound, but students of all backgrounds are welcome. The Masque attempts to cul- tivate an understanding and appreciation of theatre, develop standards of taste and provide insight into human emotion and behavior. Theatre is not all acting, however, and students find their place in many other areas of the Masque. Actors need appropriate costumes and make-up, the stage must be decorated and lit and an atmosphere must be created. And if the backstage bustle wasn ' t for you, there was always ushering, publicity, advertising and any of the other business aspects of thea- tre management. As Masque members will be the first to admit, cooperation, enthusi- asm and hard work — not one person — make a successful show. Even as Eugene Blackman, chairman of the Department of Drama and Speech, was pres- enting an introductory lecture to the Class of 1976 in Fresh- man Orientation Week of 1971, backstage activity was begin- ning for the first of that fall ' s productions — " The Connec- tion, " a junkie ' s slice of life, Mort Kaplan directed by Prof. Mort S. Kaplan. The Masque ' s next produc- tion was the French farce, " A Flea in Her Ear, " concerning the suspicions of a young wife (Linda Firestone) over her hus- band ' s (Jeff Hellman) infidel- ity. Controversy was touched upon in February of 1972, when Kaplan directed " The Baptism, " attacking hypocrisy from religion to sex, and " Rats, " society seen in contem- porary themes. Productions which followed included Tennessee Williams ' View From the Bridge " Suddenly Last Summer, " Elmer Rice ' s " The Adding Machine, " and Ibsen ' s " Hedda Gabler. " The traditional spring musi- cal — directed by Blackman — was " Anyone Can Whistle, " a musical comedy that had a short run on Broadway in 1964 and which many felt was ahead of its time. The play centered on the mayor (Francine Ticken) of a bankrupt town who schemes to manufacture a miracle in order to draw tourists. This " branch of Lourdes " was also the site of an insane asylum whose inhabitants were lov- ingly referred to as " Cookies. " The Silver Masque produc- tion also featured Greg Zadi- kov, Ed Murello, Vic Ephrussi and Donna Karassik. A summer production of Neil Simon ' s comedy " Come Blow Your Horn " was directed by Kelly O ' Leary, a Northeast- ern graduate. November of 1972 saw the mixed-media production " Alice, Again, " a work based on Lewis Carroll ' s " Alice in Wonderland. " Adapted and directed by Iris M. Fanger, a visiting lecturer from Tufts, the play proved that familiarity, mixed with fantasy, can only breed delight. The clever musical em- ployed all of Carroll ' s original characters, but the setting was Boston and the time the pres- ent. Alice tumbled down the rabbit ' s hole became a drop into the MBTA ' s tunnel and the Mad Hatter ' s frantic tea party was hosted by Brig- ham ' s. Through films, the audience also traveled to the Common and Public Gardens, Govern- ment Center and the NU park- ing lot, complete with potholes (remember those?). The cast featured Milda Dacys, Rosemary Higgins, David Rosenfield, Judy Jack- sina and Margaret Kennally. Other productions in the 1972-73 lineup included the Euripidean tragedy " Trojan Women, " Eugene O ' Neill ' s " The Emperor Jones, " Molli- ere ' s " Tartuffe, " Ionesco ' s " Exit the King, " Gore Vidal ' s " Visit to a Small Planet " and the touching " Butterflies are Free. " Cole Porter ' s " Kiss Me Kate " was the 1973 musical, based on Shakespeare ' s " The Taming of the Shrew. " In 1973, the Masque announced a new concept in entertainment. In utilizing the writing, act- ing, directing and production Mary Beth Russo — " Twain Told Tales. Anatol talents of the students, the drama department and the Masque created the Five O ' clock Theatre Series. 1973-74 was rounded out by Tennessee Williams ' " Street- car Named Desire, " " The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, " " Mistress of the Inn, " " Blood Wedding, " " Arsenic and Old Lace " and " Cashmere Love. " The last play, directed by Kaplan, was written by Flor- Edward II Butterflies Are Free ence Hunt, who came to Northeastern at the time and also offered seminars and workshops for all those inter- ested. " Two Gentlemen of Verona " was Blackman ' s spring musical production. The sexual comedy " An- atol " in the fall of 1974 dealt with a man ' s attempt, and fail- ure, to dominate women in the 1890 ' s. Directed by Pat Sankus, the play ' s cast included Rene Mills, Darrell Ann Gamache, Nancy Bailey, Milda Dacys, Roland Jenkins, Charles Chap- man and Donna Lee Franklin. " Anatol " was followed by Terrance McNally ' s hard-core comedy " Noon, " directed by senior Lisa H. Siegal in the Five O ' clock Theatre Series. The cast of Paul J. Iverson, Steve Einstein, Francine Ticken, Heidi Hill and Charles Chapman was excellent in this story of five off-beat charac- ters who were duped into giv- ing up their lunch hours to meet someone they met through the personals column of a newspaper. Each had a rather unique request, and each thought he would be alone on this mid-day rendez- vous. " A View from the Bridge, " Arthur Miller ' s prize-winning play about an Italian long- Perna), and " Delusions " : Gla- dys and Hazel (with Darrell Ann Gamache and Rosemary Higgins). A Five O ' clock presentation of Neil Simon ' s " Lovers and Other Strangers " was directed by drama student Rene C. Lightman. " It ' s rewarding to see an Arsenic and shoreman warped by his sub- conscious love for his niece, was the next Masque offering, followed by Bertolt Brecht ' s " Edward II, " and Kaplan ' s production of Arthur Kopit ' s " Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama ' s Hung You in the Closet and I ' m Feelin ' So Sad. " The spring of 1975 brought two one-act plays under the umbrella title of " Mind Games " to the Studio. Kaplan directed the plays, titled " Illu- sions: Miss Golden Dreams " (with Donna Karassik, Brian Yates, Pat Sankus and Lynn Old Lace entire creation put into a mold, " she said. " You can see your work, where in acting you can ' t. Directing is much more frustrating. It ' s more than you bargained for. It ' s been an experience, but a rewarding one. " As the spring of 1975 rolled around, so did " Guys and Dolls, " a musical portrait of Broadway, big-time gamblers, nightclub entertainers and Sal- vation Army trumpeteers. Steven Roesser and T. J. Litin starred as Nathan Detroit and Miss Adelaine and each role was handled with marvel- ous ease. The 1975-76 season was one that was colored by the Bicen- tennial — with such authors as Mark Twain, Moss Hart, George S. Kaufman, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. In November, Sankus adapted and directed a Cham- ber Theater production of Mark Twain in " Twain Told Tales. " Sankus said she chose three Twain tales to present because " he (Twain) talks about Amer- ican society in a way everyone still understands. " December ' s production was " You Can ' t Take it With You, " the Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman play about a screw- ball family during the depres- sion. Casting sessions for both plays snagged near-record turnouts. During the fall of 1975, sen- ior drama student Rene Mills chose to take advantage of the Five O ' clock Theatre series by adapting and presenting a platform presentation of " The Black Women in America. " In February, Darrell Ann Gamache was on her way to the stake in " The Lady ' s Not for Burning. " However, she was saved from a torching doom by Peter C. Erich in the nick of time. Both actors gave memorable performances in Christopher Fry ' s three-act comedy in verse, and were backed by a more than competent cast of witch-hunters. " Lady " was followed by John Guare ' s " House of Blue Leaves, " directed by Kaplan. The final production for the class of ' 76 was the lusty Ler- ner and Loewe musical, " Paint Your Wagon. " Filled with saloon fights, can-can dancing and a treasure hunt, the min- ing town story of the Califor- nia Gold Rush of 1853 was yet another Bicentennial salute to America ' s history. Under Blackman ' s guidance, the Silver Masque has been Guys and Dolls providing the Northeastern community with a wide vari- ety of entertainment for more than 20 years. For its members, the Masque affords a multi- tude of opportunities. Those students interested in theatre as a hobby may actively par- ticipate in the productions of several plays each year. Those students pursuing a career in theatre are provided with a laboratory workshop where classroom theory is put to use and where new skills are learned. Not all Masque members wind up singing the big finale in Blackman ' s spring musical. And not all members are cho- sen to become a part of one of Kaplan ' s world premieres. Certainly, the Masque is not designed that way. It ' s designed to utilize a stu- dent ' s talents, whether it be a flair for the comedic or a gift with a paintbrush. Whatever the case, no one leaves the Green Room without knowing the Masque ' s warmth and camaraderie. — Robert Donovan View From the Bridge The Connection You Can ' t Take It With You House of Blue Leaves Northeastern and the auto- mobile. Not exactly the most compatible combination in the world, but one that seems to get by day after day. The parking situation at Northeastern has gotten worse over the past five years, espe- cially this year, with the stress of carpooling and the increased cost of parking stickers. But no matter how late students arrive for class, no matter what day of the week it is, there is usually some place where they can park. Even if it ' s light years away. Although it wasn ' t bad our first three years, parking at the university took a turn for the worse in the fall of 1974. Dur- ing the summer of that year, the main (South) lot was paved with tar. It had been just a dirt lot, with no parking guidelines, and students parking any ol ' way they pleased. The paved lot took away many parking spaces (for fire lanes and just . . . and wait plain better organization), leaving students looking else- where for spaces. They didn ' t have to look too far. Just across the railroad tracks was the Columbus Ave- nue lot, used mainly in those days to handle the leftover cars from the main lot. Rarely was it filled. It began to see a little more action. In the spring of 1975 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that all business and educational institutions would have to " make a good effort " to cut parking by 25 per cent to reduce automotive exhaust fumes in the city. The effort resulted in the university encouraging car- pools by giving them prime space in the lot, the price of parking stickers was raised from $1 to $5, and more work study students were hired to prevent cars without stickers from sneaking into the lot and to make sure only those cars who belonged there were there. The result was a commuter nightmare. The main lot began filling to capacity by 7:45 a.m. The Columbus Ave. lot became jammed not long after. Parking for the Field Street and Ruggles Street lots became a scramble. Long lines of cars waited outside the main lot for a space. The smart commuter always knew, however, where he could find a space. There was always one behind the ware- house on Columbus Ave., par- allel to the railroad tracks. Sometimes a few would exist on the Ruggles St. lot, across from the projects. Neither of them were in the safest of places, for sure, but at least there were spaces — a most welcome sight. So, in 1976 automobile park- ing, although a pain in the neck, was tolerable. And until the university builds a trans- porter room 200 years from now, Northeastern and the automobile will just have to get along. — Michael Coogan Blacktop blues Like everything e lse around here, it ' s become sterile — parking at Northeastern just isn ' t what it used to be. In the old days there was adventure; parking several miles away and sneaking past the shadows filled with who- knows-what kind of mysteri- ous dangers. There was excitement; the rush for the spaces every morning, as thousands of cars of all shapes and sizes careened madly about the unpaved lot, seeking spaces where there weren ' t any, and throwing up clouds of dust that were seen over at Har- vard. There were thrills; sneaking past the guard whose primary function was to make students wait in line because " THIS LOT IS FULL, " when in fact there were a dozen empty spots. And above all there was mystery. No matter how early the adventurous commuter arrived the odds were even at best that a spot could be found within sight of the campus. But t he school that brought you a seemingly endless layout of gray brick had to do over the parking lot. There is gleaming tar on the ground where natural dust once reigned supreme. There are regimented parking spots where the freewheeling indi- vidualist once had the oppor- tunity to express himself any place at any angle. And there are the guards. Kids with orange belts, guards from Burns Security, guards with brown suits and cops with blue suits patrol every inch of the parking lots. Sure there ' s organization now. There is safety where there once was danger. And there ' s order where there was chaos. The old way was a rat race on wheels, but it was alive and about the most excitement you could get for a buck a year. But they couldn ' t leave it the way it was. The parking lots weren ' t well-planned and tightly managed. They weren ' t (and still aren ' t — yet) gray. Like much of Northeastern, the parking lots are designed to get you in and out quickly, efficiently and with as little variation as possible. It ' s almost enough to make one take the " T. " — Art MacPherson Whether students are head- ing for the quad or dragging back towards Huntington Ave., after a hard day of class, they pass the hot dog wagon. For nearly a year, Archie and Stella Hatzopoulos have braved summer ' s heat and winter ' s icy blasts to provide students with a tempting vari- ety of food stuffs. A former accountant in Greece, Hatzopoulos, his wife and their two sons, came to the United States in 1971. " He can ' t speak the lan- guage so he wanted to try this (selling hotdogs), " said his son George, an electrical engineer- ing student at Northeastern. " Northeastern seemed like a friendly place and my father asked the campus police and eventually the president for permission to set up his busi- ness, " he continued. George said his parents enjoy their work but added that it is a very tiring job, dan- gerous and it " takes a lot of hours. " The Hatzpoulos ' work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. four and a half days a week, taking Friday afternoons off since there are few students around. The family lives on North- hampton Street and " make a living " from their concession in front of the university. " They will stay here as long as Northeastern lets them, " George said, adding that the cart is not on university prop- erty and a permit from the city, state, and Board of Health is required to operate the stand legally. " The job is dangerous to their health because they are out in the cold, " George said, " but my parents will probably stay in the business another couple of years. " — David Wood The endless ride Somehow, it ' s hard to forget those rumors you heard as a kid that they used to be cattle cars before they were painted orange and yellow and stuck on the Arborway line. One never really forgets that first ride on the MBTA. The cars are dingy, the drivers surly and the ride can only be described as a series of erratic jumps, carefully calculated to throw the rider off balance. For those that travel the T each day, the ride is an ordeal that is endured only in stolid silences. When one opens one ' s mouth to speak, there is a three-fold danger: the speaker must breathe more of the stale wino air than is healt hy; the speaker, perform- ing an unnatural act by mak- ing the humanistic gesture of speech, will be taken for a per- vert; or worse, the speaker, showing his vulnerability, will be taken by a pervert. Thus, even the most packed MBTA cars are as quiet as Tut ' s tomb, albeit somewhat older. What a ride on the Green Line (a misnomer — the Green, Red, Orange and Blue Lines are all, in fact, a dismal gray that would make even a battle- ship blush) lacks in noise, it makes up for in excitement. There are the perverts, of course, but even they must watch for the pickpockets — or pursesnatchers, in the case of most women and some of the aforementioned perverts. The MBTA boasts pickpock- ets that are among the nation ' s finest. With the greatest of ease, these young hoods fly from one car to the next — snatching, grabbing and pinch- ing as they go, and they haven ' t started to steal yet. Equally as enervating is the popular game, " Let ' s See If We Can Find an MBTA Cop. " There are, however, no win- ners in this game, as no one has yet to score. I can report that there are in fact MBTA cops. I have seen them, riding slowly about the streets of Boston in MBTA cop cars. Though they may be inef- fective, they at least have the smarts to stay off the subways when they want to get some- where in a hurry. So the MBTA is dirty, it ' s slow, it ' s dangerous and it ' s dull and dingy. It ' s also all we have and it isn ' t likely to get much better. So what do you want for 45 cents? — Art MacPherson determination chickens? Time mushes on. Half a century has passed since the first year of our hound. It is now 50 A.D. (after dog). Siberian Husky " Sapsut " — the university ' s first mascot, son of Alaskan sled dogs Kira of Kazan and Moki of Koloma — turned 50 years old on St. Patrick ' s Day, 1976. While the rest of the world was wearing green, Northeast- ern rolled out its red and black carpet honoring the birth of Sapsut, alias King Husky I. Born in Nome, Alaska on March 17, 1926, Sapsut arrived on the Northeastern campus one year later, a symbol of strength, teamwork and deter- mination; a critter with a crav- ing for killing chickens. Then vice president, Carl S. Ell, kept the vivacious mascot at his home in Newton. After jumping an eight-foot fence in Ell ' s backyard several times, Sapsut had allegedly killed a few rabbits, nine turkeys, 31 chickens and had broken the neck of a sheep. " I don ' t know how he could jump that fence, " recalled President Emeritus Ell, now 89, a week before Sapsut ' s 50th birthday. " He ' d take two tries at it and on the second one he was over. He got into a chicken farm one time. The owner was furious. I had to pay for the chickens myself. " According to Ell, Sapsut did not go after fowl for food. " He didn ' t eat the chickens, " he said. " He only went after them for the sport. He was attracted by their outstretched wings flapping. " If not for the efforts of Ell, who purchased Sapsut as a puppy from renowned dogsled racer Leonhard Seppala in 1927, the Husky would have grown up in Alaska, destined to pull a sled like his father and great grandfather, Noonok of Marly. He would have been an important part of the team, King Husky miles from both fences and chickens. Two years before the dog came to Northeastern (1925) Seppala drove his sled team — Sapsut ' s father among it — 345 miles, delivering serum to the diphtheria-stricken village of Nome while gaining much fame, for the journey was per- formed non-stop. Yet Sapsut, hereafter referred to as King Husky I, would never get the chance to perform similar heroics. That he was plucked from his family is a sad note indeed, but let there be solace in the knowledge that King Husky ' s appetite did not go unattended in the warmth of New Eng- land. Three weeks after arriving at Northeastern with master Seppala, King Husky I cele- brated his first birthday with much student cheer and cere- mony, not to mention a huge meat pie on which was a single candle. As the Northeastern News of 1927 reports: " It is hardly necessary to add that the savory pie was transferred with great dispatch into Husky I ' s Department of Interior. When the last morsel had dis- appeared, he wore a look of supreme content, and if dogs could talk, would have voted this birthday the best any Husky ever had! " King Husky had 15 birth- days in all, retiring from many dutiful years of mascoteering at the age of 13. Five more King Huskies and two Queens fol- lowed in his royal path. The concept of the Husky originated from a special com- mittee formed to find a mascot for Northeastern — a school of 5,000 students in 1927. Student sentiment fell towards a bee, a pig or sidehill gouger, but the administration leaned towards something more practical — like a dog. When students learned of the administratio n ' s prefer- ence for a canine, they asked for a mongrel. The administra- tion had its way. The Husky was born. President Speare said the Husky was emblematic of " Speed, endurance, intelli- gence and recognition of lead- ership as exemplified by the sled dogs of the Northwest, who can combine great physi- cal power and determination with a willingness to enter whole-heartedly into team- work. " Speare made no mention of the Husky ' s affinity for bump- ing off chickens. Now let the saga of our furry canine return to Leonhard Seppala (1878-1967), winner of the Alaskan Dogsled Sweep- stakes three straight years, 1915-17. While sled racing in Poland Springs, Maine, Seppala received a visit from Ell, who asked to buy one of two pups Seppala had brought with him. At first the " king of the trail " was reluctant to comply, hav- ing intentions of grooming the dogs for future racing. But money talked; Sapsut became King Husky I. Seppala agreed to come to Northeastern on March 4, to present the school with its mascot. Before returning home, Ell was given a ride on Seppala ' s sled. March 4: Afternoon classes were cancelled — an indica- tion that this was no small todo and over 1,000 students greeted the dog at North Sta- tion. A parade with the North- eastern band and a police escort led King Husky back to campus. The parade route passed the Boston University business school, inciting several BU stu- dents to hurl tomatoes and tin cans at poor King. An apology from BU arrived on King ' s first birthday, in the form of five- foot by three-foot post card, wishing the pup a happy birth- day. It has not been deter- mined whether King accepted the Terriers ' apology, but all visible indications are that King enjoyed the meat pie m0re - X f U -f DII 4- . . . Maybe if BU sent a chicken. The New York Times reported the parade on its front page, but — in one of the great ironies — the Northeast- ern News carried a more thor- ough account. Once the parade reached campus, President Speare pre- sented King with two honorary degrees. The following is an excerpt from Speare ' s wel- coming speech: " In view of his experience on the road and his ability to withstand arctic blasts, I grant him a Rhodes scholarship which entitles him to certain rights and privileges: one square meal a day, a comforta- ble place to sleep, and the unbounded affection and enthusiasm of a large student body. " The Husky proved a hit as both mascot and actor. At King ' s first athletic-event appearance, Northeastern — racing against Worcester Poly Tech — set three school records and took first place in all events except one. In 1929, King took to the stage in a musical, " Top of the World, " a story about life in King ' s native Eskimo world. A Northeastern production writ- ten by two university profes- sors (Trentwell White and Edward Place), the play was performed before a SRO crowd. King ' s part was small — pulling a sled onto the set — but performed smoothly and without stage fright. If acting wasn ' t enough, King also had class. As an entry in the 1933 Eastern Dog Show held in Boston, King col- lected blue ribbons in open- breed competition, Siberian Husky class and for " the best male dog in his class. " On March 26, 1941, King died of a disease diagnosed as old age. No other Northeastern mascot has had as colorful a reign, although King Husky V proved just as michievous. In the 1967 hockey Beanpot Tournament, King Husky V wobbled onto the ice at Boston Garden between periods. Obviously nervous about his footing on the slick and alien surface, King Husky V — blushing all the while — turned a portion of the ice a shade of lemon yellow. According to Northeastern Sports Information Director Jack Grinold, this prompted one member of the press box to yell, " I ' m glad Tufts (Ele- phant Jumbos) ain ' t in the Beanpot. " Asa S. Knowles wishes King V never entered his office. While president, Knowles was one day to have his picture taken with the Husky. This was to make a splendid PR photo, publicizing the Husky fundraising campaign — an effort to pay for King ' s $15-a- week kennel fee. The press was huddled in Knowles ' office and a photog- rapher was ready to fire when King raised his leg. " He made a mistake right there on the carpet, " said Jack Green, director of alumni rela- tions. " It ' s a green carpet. I know dogs are supposed to be color blind, but I think he mis- took it for grass. " Northeastern ' s first queen husky had no untimely spills, but lasted only six months. Replacing King Husky I, Queen I was presented with a freshman cap and tuition bill on arrival. She flunked out after a short reign and was replaced by King Husky II in 1942. As the youngest competitor in the Eastern Dog Show, King II — cute as a button — contin- uously played with the judges, growing ever popular with the audience. But playful pups fin- ish second. The darling of the crowd took home the next best thing to a blue ribbon. Mascoteering his f irst foot- ball game, King II grew under- standably bored — Northeast- ern was losing to Bates — 12-0 — and slipped his reins, zip- ping for the exit. The North- eastern News reported that " a cheerleader spotted the pup and made one of the best tack- les of the game on him. " (Credit Stanley Buchanan, Class of ' 45, with the tackle; there were few girls at North- eastern before 1950). John Salecker, a Northeast- ern student has compiled a thorough history of the Husk- ies for a pamphlet made avail- able to the school community. Salecker reports that King II trained with veterinarian and dog-musher Roland Lombard. King eventually raced as one of nine dogs on the doctor ' s dogsled team. Racing in the New England Sled Dog Club, Lombard ' s team recorded fre- quent victories, including a world-record clocking for the 14-mile course in Newport, N.H. In 1952, at the age of 10, King II abdicated the throne in favor of King III, a beast best remembered for his part in prodding several Northeastern News editors to resign. King III took part in this colossal epi- sode by dying. An explanation of a long story appears below in con- densed form: According to Athletic Direc- tor Herbert Gallagher, then director of student activities, King III developed an infec- tious disease one summer and had to be put to sleep. North- eastern, wishing to protect the kennel at which the dog was taken ill, hid the knowledge of the Husky ' s death from its stu- dent body. When the first football game rolled around in the fall, stu- s dents went for the dog but found none. They immediately assumed that Rhode Island University had stolen it in retribution — last season Northeastern students had swiped Rhode Island ' s ram and had placed it on a farm in Acton. Unable to find a replace- ment pup in time, the adminis- tration realized then it had to ' fess up and told the student body of the dog ' s death. " The students thought we were pulling their leg, " said Gallagher. " They thought we were lying to protect Rhode Island. " The Northeastern News, furious with the administra- tion, attempted to change the school mascot from Husky to Chump. The News somehow got hold of a chimpanzee and plotted to run a picture of it on the front page. " They said we (the adminis- tration) were chumps for not telling the truth, " said Gal- lagher. " They were going to run a full page spread calling the school the NU Chumps. " " As the director of student activities, I had to tell them that it wasn ' t good for North- eastern, that the Chump part would catch hold and stick if the media found out. I told them they couldn ' t print it. I also told the printer that if he printed it, he would never print another Northeastern News again. " Outraged by such censor- ship, several editors resigned. The story never ran and the issue swiftly blew away. Princess " Regent " Husky climbed aboard shortly after The News war. Serving as a temporary for two years, she stepped down for Husky IV. Husky IV is most proud of his appearance on the Bob Emery Big Brother TV Show. Under the hot lights, he became temperamental, letting out a loud howl before attempting to run off the set. Rin Tin Tin he wasn ' t. After King Husky IV, Gal- lagher and others felt a succes- sor should not be sought. " There was no place to keep the dog on campus, " Gallagher said. " It had to be kept in a kennel, which was unfair to the dog. " Northeastern traded the idea of a live mascot for the bronze Husky statue which now resides in the Ell Center lobby. " The statue became a good luck charm, " Gallagher noted. " You know, rubbing its nose before taking a test got you a good grade. " Good grades came at a cost of $5,000. From 1958 to 1965 North- eastern went without a live mascot. In 1965 the freshman class of ' 70 — Jack Green ' s class — purchased a Siberian on its own, but when handler, John Loud, graduated in 1970 so did King Husky V of Boston Gar- den fame. The dog is still alive today and living in New Hampshire. Queen Husky II, the sister of King V, was purchased by the Husky Key, a student organi- zation responsible for seeing that the dog was properly cared for. It stayed at a stu- dent ' s home in Jamaica Plain, finally stepping down in ' 72, too timid to carry out its duties. King Husky VI, the victim of an auto mishap in November of 1972, was the last of North- eastern ' s Siberian family. Long life King Husky V, the ice wetter. — Steven R. Feldman Queen Husky I R.O.T.C. The quiet times The first class of commis- sioned women cadets. Quite an accomplishment for an organization that at var- ious times during its history at Northeastern was demon- strated against, lost large num- bers of cadets and eventually lost academic credit. The cadets of 1971 missed all the fun and excitement of the Hemenway Street riots, anti-ROTC demonstrations, and various other anti-war protests of the late 60 ' s. Enrollment in ROTC as well as in the university in general was at low in 1971. Enrollment dropped so much in ROTC that the weekly drills on the Fenway were done away with by the summer of 1974. How- ever the enrollment figures changed drastically in 1975 and the drills were resumed. Academic credit had at one time been used as an elective toward graduation, but by 1975 the College of Business was the only college granting credit in Military Science. In 1973 ROTC admitted the first class of women cadets. Quite a change from the all male units of the past. Wom- en ' s liberation even penetrated the ranks of the army. The chore of cleaning weap- ons, a task that had been required twice per quarter, ended in 1974 when the weap- ons were removed to Fort Devons and the arms room was remodeled into a lounge. The cadet organization changed from a battalion to a brigade in 1974. The battalion was composed of a ranger bat- talion and another battalion of non-ranger cadets. The bri- gade attempted to foster a bet- ter experience outside of the classroom. — Mary Concannon Northeastern joins the bicentennial celebration 1976. The year of the election, graduation and the Bicenten- nial. Northeastern not to be out- done by the rest of the city and country did its part for Ameri- ca ' s 200th birthday. Beginning in January with a film series entitled " Crisis and Confrontation, " the Bicenten- nial Committee under the direction of Professor William Fowler of the history depart- ment led the university in the historical celebration. The committee originally formed in the fall of 1974 saw many stalls and hassles before the final plans were initiated. The original committee met three times in nine months and failed to come up with any substantial plans. Former pres- ident Asa Knowles would not fund any of the committee ' s projects. Knowles did not want to commit funds that could burden his successor (Kenneth G. Ryder) for a program he could not personally oversee. Faced with the possibility of being excluded from the " Bos- ton 200 " pamphlet listing the universities and colleges plans for the celebration, university officials responded quickly in July 1975. President Ryder was under the assumption that the committee had been meeting all along. Chairman Fowler, of the new committee, quickly can- vassed the campus and came up with the present program. (The Boston 200 pamphlet was never issued). A speaker series focusing on American history, government and politics highlighted the spring quarter. Featured speakers included: Piers William Fowler Mackesy, professor of history at Oxford University; Linda Grant DePaun, associate pro- fessor of history at George Washington University; Wal- ter Muir, former director of the Boston Athenaeum; Richard Falk; and Theodore Becker. Other plans for the celebra- tion included several plays performed by the Silver Mas- que focusing on American playwrights culminating in June with the musical " Paint Your Wagon. " In August the university will display the works of various American sculptors in the Dodge art gallery. Also plan- ned for August is an exhibit of photos and memorabilia from the first World Series. Fowler said there was a chance of establishing a permanent World Series display in the gym. The celebration will con- clude with a symposium on American Literature. The sym- posium is sponsored by the English department and is scheduled for Oct. 9 at the Henderson House. Fowler is happy with the response to the bicentennial offerings. The movies have " gone over well and on the whole the university is satis- fied. " He added that North- eastern ' s plans are on a par with other universities in the area. " I ' m pleased with the pro- gram we have planned, " said Fowler. " When 1977 comes the university will have accom- plished a lot. The university will have taught people some- thing.

Since he came to Northeast- ern, following 10 years as the president of the University of Toledo, Knowles has been the major force behind the addi- tion of nine new academic buildings, three new dormito- ries and the addition of subur- ban campuses in Burlington, Ashland, Weston, and Nahant. Total enrollment at the Bos- ton campus has risen from 20,000 day and evening stu- dents to 45,000 during Knowles ' tenure. It was easier to build a uni- versity then, he said, because he could do things when he wanted, the way he wanted. " There was everything going for you. There was rapid growth because of a lot of funds, generous alumni, gov- ernment funds were more available, and the number of students was growing steadily, " said the Bowdoin graduate. Now, after almost three dec- ades of action as a university president, Knowles has semi- retired to the office of the Chancellor. His new duties include raising funds for cam- pus expansion and develop- ment and editing various off- campus publications. He was chairman of the National Organization of Co-operative Education and holds the same office on the Post Secondary Education Commission for the Commonwealth of Massachu- setts. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the new International Ency- clopedia of Higher Education at the request of publishers, Jossey-Bass, Inc. of San Fran- cisco. The encyclopedia, scheduled for publication in 1976, contains articles on stu- dent unrest, curriculum, fac- ulty methods and discusses colleges and universities throughout the world. Knowles doesn ' t miss the responsibilities that go along with being a university presi- dent. " I have been a university president for 30 years, " Knowles said, " and I am glad to have a change. " I have nothing to do with the internal administration, although I am available to President Ryder for consulta- tion. " " Now, " said Knowles, " my pace is leisurely and the pres- sure is not great. " It is the fund raising and building for which Knowles is best known, and most criti- cized. During his tenure at the school (called the " Miracle of Huntington Avenue " ), twelve new buildings were added to the Boston campus, increasing the plant value from $15.4 mil- lion in 1960 to $64 million in 1973, and tripling the acreage. But Knowles has come under fire all through his career for building too much and ignoring academics. Kenneth G. Ryder, Knowles ' successor, said " President Knowles has always placed a high value on academic prog- ress. He was caught up in a building program (the Dia- mond Anniversary), but I think that when the presi- dency of Asa Knowles is put in perspective in 10 or 20 years, his academic work will be found more important. " President Knowles was fully responsible for acquiring almost all the new colleges — Pharmacy, Bouve, Nursing, a new Law School, and Criminal Justice, " said Ryder. The greatest and most satis- fying personal accomplish- ment, said Knowles, is " the culmination of a lot of things — of everything that has gone into making up Northeastern University. " In 1959, Knowles said his ipurpose was to " build and strengthen Northeastern in its growing services to Greater Boston, to Massachusetts, and to the nation. " It is a lot to ask of one man, and it has taken a lot of man to doit. " Now, " said Knowles, " it ' s time for a change. You can do only so much in one job. A new president with new ideas is needed. " — David Wood Easy Ryder " I sometimes wish I was still teaching. I am a bit of a ham and enjoy performing in the classroom, " said Kenneth Gil- more Ryder reflecting on his new position as Northeastern ' s fourth president. " Teaching is more orderly than administrative work. It has a beginning and an end, problems eventually get solved, " said Ryder. " In administrative work the pace varies. Sometimes problems are handled quickly while other times it seems like there is no end in sight, " he said. Ryder ' s new job as president is more diversified than he anticipated. " I am in contact with members of the commu- nity, the legislature, the alumni, and the business com- munity. " " The job of president requires a substancial amount of flexibility. My greatest problem is time. There is not enough of it to fulfill all of the responsibilities and demands of the job, " Ryder said. " The open door policy I had as executive vice president is virtually impossible in order to get everything done. I don ' t want to establish an isolation- ist policy but I have to limit my time, " he added. The job of university presi- dent is far from dull. The pres- ident has the final say on most decisions dealing with the uni- versity. In the past Ryder made recommendations to the presi- dent but the responsibility for the final decision was always up to President Knowles. Some of the decisions the president has to make are very difficult said Ryder. " I have to deal with job termination. It is up to me to decide which is more important; the individu- al ' s welfare or the welfare of the university. " The president is exposed to more people outside the Northeastern community. He has a more external view of the university than, " I did as vice president and the view is more positive, " he said. As executive vice president Ryder dealt with the daily " problems and frustrations of the university. " The president can be more effective in some areas than any other administrator, said Ryder. However, internal changes within the department must be decided on by the var- ious department members. As president, Ryder would like to work more directly with students and faculty. He has had some open meetings with dorm and commuter students to hear their various gripes G-OOl , SAVE THE KW and problems with Northeast- ern. Ryder would like to visit with each department within the university and find out what the faculty wants and what problems they are having with the university or their specific department. He would also like to estab- lish contact for the university in the legislature. The contacts will be helpful to Northeastern in the future, said Ryder. " On the whole Northeastern is a better place now than when I first came here, " said Ryder. " There are more pro- grams and the programs are more flexible so the students are allowed more freedom in their courses. " " The largeness of the uni- versity is a disadvantage. The personal relationships between the faculty and stu- dents have almost disap- peared, while the relations between the faculty and the administration are strained, " he added. Ryder " wants to encourage a sense of community among the colleges. This could be accom- plished by housing the individ- ual colleges in the same area, " he said. " Some of the identity and human contact that existed years ago has disappeared but can be recaptured. " " My career with Northeast- ern has been rewarding and interesting. I am pleased at the way it has turned out and have no regrets in my association with the university, " said Ryder. " There has been a con- tinued growth and change among the faculty and stu- dents and many vast improve- ments have been made within the university. " " I have never seriously con- sidered leaving Northeastern for any reason. Although when I first arrived I never imagined I would be doing administra- tive work and eventually become president, " he said. The 52-year-old Ryder began his career at Northeast- ern in 1949 as a history and government instructor. Before coming to the university he did his undergraduate work at Boston University and obtained an A.B. in 1946. He received his M.A. in history from Harvard University in 1947. In 1953 Ryder was named assistant professor of history and associate professor in 1956. In 1958 he moved into the field of administration when he was named dean of admin- istration. Ryder was promoted to vice president and dean of univer- sity administration in 1967. He became executive vice presi- dent in 1971 and served in that position until his selection to president in 1975. Ryder would like to strengthen and enhance the role of the teacher at North- eastern. " High quality work- manship is vital in teaching. " The counseling of students, especially freshmen needs to be vastly improved, said Ryder. And a " closer relation- ship among upperclass stu- dents needs to be developed. " The part-time program needs to be increased and fur- ther developed especially for women, said Ryder. The uni- versity also needs to develop a program geared to " those citi- zens approaching retirement age. They have long been neg- lected by the university and the community. I have already authorized the hiring of some- one to investigate the feasibil- ity of such a program. " Ryder has no plans for immediate physical expansion of the university. There will be a gradual expansion over the next few years to provide bet- ter facilities for the students. Some of the buildings in use now are too old to last much longer, he said. Some day the university will have to have a new library, but not in the near future. More dormitories will be needed in the future. The uni- versity is now unable to accommodate the number of people that want to live in uni- versity housing he added. In all this additional plan- ning the Fenway community cannot be forgotten, said Ryder. In the past Northeastern has had problems with the resi- dents of the Fenway but are attempting to " get back in the good graces of the commu- nity. " Ryder has met with vari- ous community groups to dis- cuss the problems and attempt to reach some type of solu- tions. " Northeastern must invite the community to share in var- ious functions with the univer- sity in order to show our good will, " added Ryder. The university has extended campus policing to include Gainsborough Street and Sym- phony Road and has extended the street cleaning to include some of the streets of the Fen- way. The presence of Northeast- ern has pluses and minuses for members of the community, said Ryder. " However there will never exist total bliss between a large urban univer- sity and its neighbors. " The university has a " uni- que " opportunity to demon- strate its involvement and interest in the surrounding communities through its involvement in Phase II. " Northeastern is in Boston and should be concerned with the education of the city ' s chil- dren. It is also an opportunity to enrich and broaden the experience of Northeastern faculty and students, " Ryder added with a smile. " It is a chance for the uni- versity to develop good rela- tions with the city and possi- bly expose Northeastern to future members. " The new president is excited about the university ' s future involvement with Madison Park High School and the potential to improve the uni- versity ' s image in the eyes of Boston. — Mary Concannon PPi; 1 ' ; ' ■ " •: ' ■:■ ' : ' ' V9H l ' ■ -mmmm js HI ■■ ,.,, | Wr M m 8B 44 « w Winners and Losers Boston ' s sports scene Sports. It ' s a facet of life that affects many and is oblivious to the rest. In Boston, sports is a tradition and has become life ' s blood to thousands. It has become a fact of Boston life. In 1975 and into ' 76, the local professional scene was sprin- kled with a championship, a disaster, a trade and first place hockey and basketball teams. It was enough to convert the most adamant non-sports fan. The sixth game of the World Series could have done that alone. Northeastern, in the 1975-76 athletic seasons, had its share of losers and winners. John Clark in basketball and Jim Martel in hockey became the career leading scorers in their sports, despite losing seasons. Track continued to be a power, crew and women sports progressed and the foot- ball team would like to forget about their season. The tradi- tion of Husky sports continued in the past year, but being in Beantown it could do nothing else. Falling in the fall The fourth game of the 1975 football season on Oct. 4, found the Huskies in a losing battle out in Amherst with the UMass Minutemen. A week before, they were on the top of the world by virtue of an upset over Boston University, but now they were back in reality. The season climaxed in the last seconds of the BU victory. It was the only possible time it could. The 1975 season, by right, should not have been allowed to begin. Injury problems of major proportions had set in as early as pre-season and the injury " curse " would not sub- side until it had claimed 20 1975 Results Won 3 Lost 6 NU OPP. 14 at Central Connecticut 26 21 Rhode Island 16 20 Boston University 17 14 at Massachusetts 34 atAIC 29 27 Springfield 7 7 at New Hampshire 56 13 at C.

Two of the season ' s three wins came in the first three games. The Huskies had sur- prised Rhode Island at Parsons Field beating them 21-16. Quarterback Rhett Lewis and end Mike Budrow sparkled on offense clicking for two touch- downs as a combo. Going into the Beanpot Championship game with the BU Terriers the Huskies were UP. They were primed for an upset and that ' s exactly what they got, a 20-17 last-second victory. Northeastern upsets BU, who upsets Harvard, the eventual Ivy League Champs. Strange game this football. Punter quarterback Lewis shone again, as he led the Huskies to two touchdowns in the last four minutes of the game. It was Lewis ' first start of the year. He took over for an injured Clark Crowley during the URI game and performed well. The first of the comeback TD ' s came after a BU touch- down had made score, 17-7. A Lewis to freshman Dan Ross aerial cut the lead to 17-14, set- ting the stage for the exciting finale. The onside kick was next Chagrined quarterback Rhett Lewis and Husky kicker Joe Diplatzi performed it without fault as he completed the play himself by falling on the clutch pigskin at the BU 46 yardline. Back to work Lewis went, directing the Husky forces down to the three yardline with 30 seconds showing on the clock. In a fourth and goal situation Lyons bypassed the chance for a tie and directed his quarterback to throw. That he did, right into the arms of split end Art Karopolis as he cut across the endzone. That was the climax. That win, in a sense, was the whole season. From that point on, and even before, Lyons was busy shifting his personnel and training inexperienced people just to keep his team abreast. In and out of the line- up the bodies went. Mostly out. Tackle Wayne Bourgeois, middle guard Russ Jenness, centers Joe Ullmann and Mark Hannigan, end guard Steve Cesari, fullback Russ McDonald and Captain Jerry Shea, who missed the last half of the season because of a bro- ken leg, were some of the more costly casualties. All this added to the red-shirting of star halfback Kevin Foley adds up to a 3-6 season. The team ' s scoring lead was held by three players with 18 points. Eighteen points! Three players! The previous year when the team was 6-4, Tom Burke led the team with 54 points and placekicker Mike Gries had 24 PAT ' s. In ' 75, Gries had 10 PAT ' s and Burke had two points and a little bit of senioritis. The Huskies lost the UMass game, 34-14. The loss was the beginning of the end for the team as they got rolled by a tough American International team, 29-0, the next week. On Oct. 18, the Huskies con- tinued their domination over Springfield College by beating them for the fifth straight year, 27-7. It was a good way to go into the New Hampshire game with the record even at 3-3. The Division 2 semi-finalists proved too immense for Northeastern handing them a 56-7 loss, second worse in the school ' s history. The worst was a gift of Eastern Michigan in 1969 with a score of 56-0. It was fitting that Maine, which was as bad as the Husk- ies, was the final 1975 oppo- nent. It was even more fitting when the score ended up Maine winning, 2-0. Two Husky touchdowns were called back in a game that must have been directed by the God of Frustration. It was fate, this season had to end that way. Dennis Naughton Bronco " Me Bronco, me superathlete, Ail-American and all-around nice guy. Northeastern wanna win dis football game. Coach put Bronco in.

" (The referee consults the dic- tionary . . .) " Aha! You are going to get a 15- yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. I always carry this una- bridged dictionary with me in the east.

Using his muscles of steel, his speed like lightning and his hands of glue, he charges through the defense, stepping on an opponent ' s face here, cracking ribs there, kicking his way through back over he re again and Lewis was frequently in this posi- tion. finally he is forced out of bounds after a 60-yard run at the oppo- nents 20-yard line and lands upon a cheerleader on the sideline.)

" — Phil Biondo Not only on paper When any coach prepares for a season, he has strengths and weaknesses. He analyzes the upcoming season as a law- yer might look at a case — everything is on paper and all that ' s left is execution. " On paper Northeastern has the best cross country team in a long time, " said Head Coach Irwin Cohen, before the sea- son began, " but still, that ' s on paper. " The Huskies proved this prophetic statement true by easily winning their first IC4A (Eastern) Championship on Nov. 15, capturing the Greater Boston Championships, plac- ing second to the Providence Friars in the New England Championships and posting a 5-2 regular season record. On paper indeed. The team was one of the best put together by Cohen in his ten years as head coach, which includes an overall record of 86-25 and 1972 New England cross country Coach of the Year honors. In pre-season, the team was second in New England to nationally ranked Providence. There would be three encoun- ters between the two rivals 1975 Results Won 6 Lost 2 NU OPP. 25 at Harvard 30 27 at New Hampshire 28 33 UMass and 24 Rhode Island 85 19 Boston University 41 17 Holy Cross Greater Boston 44 Championship ' s 1st 22 Boston College 33 29 Dartmouth New England 26 Championships 2nd IC4A ' s 1st NCAA ' s 18th at Franklin Park and a fourth, a regular season meet, that the Friars could not attend. Observers would have plenty of opportunity to decide which team was better. The two regular season losses the harriers sustained came at the hands of UMass and Dartmouth. Against UMass in the third meet of the season, the Husk- ies fell behind when the Min- utemen pulled in front of the pack early, holding on for a convincing nine-point victory on Northeastern ' s Franklin Park course. St. John ' s and Rhode Island, two other schools in the meet, were nowhere to be seen. The unexpected failure against Dartmouth came at a very inopportune time — 1. it was the last regular season meet and 2. the New England Championships were only eight days away. The Huskies looked real good in this one as they led throughout in commanding fashion, including six of the top nine spots at the halfway mark. From that point on the race mysteriously fell into the Dartmouth Indians ' mitts. Vet- eran Kenny Flanders got a cramp and freshman standout Bruce Bickford dropped from second place to 14th, ending any chance for Northeastern. Dartmouth won, 26-29. The team opened the year with consecutive victories, over Harvard and the Univer- sity of New Hampshire. Imme- diately they received a setback when Mike Buckley, the cap- tain and last year ' s GBC ' s champion, reinjured his calf in the Harvard meet. Buckley would return five weeks later in time for the 1975 GBC ' s. In the New Hampshire con- test, the Wildcats put on quite a fight in an effort to pull what would have been the upset of the season. The Huskies left Durham, N. H. with a 27-28 squeaker on a rainy and muddy course. The heroes in that one were Bickford (2nd), spunky Danny Paul (3rd) and senior Kenny Graham, who recovered after being knocked down and finished high enough to secure the one-point John Flora win. When the Greater Boston Championships rolled around on Oct. 21, the harriers contin- ued their own roll too. They had just come off back-to-back romps over Boston University (18-41) and Holy Cross (17-44) and were quite ready to go home with the GBC crown. In another rain-soaked affair, the Huskies placed seven men in the top 20 as they tallied 26 points with second place Brandeis 31 points back. Northeastern was just too much for the locals. One half of the " Whiz Kids, ' John Flora, took individual honors breaking the tape first at 24:26. Brother Bob finished seventh, but the big news was the return of defending champ, Captain Mike Buckley. Buck- ley made his first run since the opener with Harvard when he reinjured his calf an auspi- cious one as he placed sixth. The only events left now were the New England ' s and the IC4A ' s. Franklin Park was an ade- quate setting for the show- down between the two best squads, not only in New Eng- land, but in the East. The Prov- idence Friars were coming to town to face the Northeastern Huskies for the first time this season. The Friars did not make the scheduled regular season match-up due to lack of funds. The race was a classic, as only three points separated the leaders at the end. The Friars had won this round but not without a fight from the Husk- ies. The running of these two teams, head-to-head in fierce competition, could not end at the New England Champion- ships and both schools knew it. The next showdown would be at the Intercollegiate Ama- teur Athletic Association of America Championship in Van Cortland Park, NY. The Eastern Championship is another name and it was a name that Northeastern cross country had ever experienced. Could this be the year? Providence was there. Princeton, Dartmouth, Boston College, Georgetown and Penn were there. And of course, Northeastern. " I thought that if we were ever going to win this thing it would be a tough job, " said Coach Everett Baker, " but it was easy. " Easy it was, as the Huskies finished with 57 points while second-place Princeton was 28 points back and rival Provi- dence took third with 113 points. Northeastern had done it, they had become the IC4A champs. The names were the same with John Flora taking fourth, Bickford seventh, Bob Flora eighth, Buckley 13th and Flanders 27th. — Dennis M. Butler Clark sizzles; season fizzles ••King Husky " John Clark Hypothetically speaking the 1975-76 Northeastern basket- ball team would have been the best Division II club in the East and possibly in the coun- try. They were 10-1 in the lesser class but in Division I managed just two victories out of 14 contests. Frankly, in the land of Syra- cuses, UMasses, Holy Crosses etc., Northeastern is still miles apart. Granted the Huskies managed to show some respectability against the above named powers, but there was one common denominator which separated them from these opponents. In every one of these crucial games, Northeastern lost. But whether it was a win over MIT or a loss to Syracuse, John Clark — a player with more moves on the court than the Combat Zone ' s maiden harlots — was the team ' s dom- inating factor. Clark, ( " The greatest player I ever coached — Northeastern Coach Jim Calhoun) a not so highly touted player out of Pittsburgh, smashed two Husky records during his four- year reign on the Cabot Gym hardwood. In his career finale against Maine, Clark shattered Mark Jellison ' s single season scoring mark of 492 points set in the 1972-73 campaign. Clark fin- ished the season with 511 points and won the respect of almost every opposing coach. For instance . . . " He ' s the best guard in New England, " Boston College ' s Bob Zuffalato. " A fine collegiate basketball player. He ' s got all the tools. " Former Celtic great Bob Cousey. " Clark has been a thorn in my side for four years. I ' m happy he ' s finally graduating. " UMass Coach Jack Leah man. In his four years, Clark established himself as the greatest lifetime scorer at Dave Caligaris dribbles past a fallen opponent. The sophomore forward was the team ' s second leading scorer with 354 points and a 14.16 average. Captain Paul Walsh Northeastern. His 1106 career points bettered the old mark set by John Malvey (1961-64). He improved his scoring every year, from 12.4 in his freshman year to 14.6 as a sophomore to 18.2 as a junior and in his final season ballooned to 20.5, third best in New England and the ECAC. Nevertheless, Clark ' s scor- ing couldn ' t override the fact that the Huskies finished 12-13 — the first time in 15 years that the team didn ' t finish above the .500 mark. The first losing campaign since 60-61 started off with duds. In the season opener, Vermont pulled away in a sec- ond half explosion as the Cata- mounts romped 72-54. In the home opener versus Merri- mack, old friend Dana Skinner came back to haunt his former mates on a layup in double overtime as the Warriors upended the Huskies, 82-81. Northeastern then ran off their longest winning streak of the season — four — defeating Stonehill, Bridgeport, Tufts and St. Michaels, wins not worth writing home to mother about. Prior to the Christmas break, Northeastern traveled below the Mason-Dixon line but bowed to Virginia Common- wealth, 101-82. In January, following two easy victories over hapless Springfield and MIT, the Huskies entered the meat of their schedule. In the first round of the Beanpot, Boston University sent their Back Bay neighbors into the consolation game with a 74-66 win. In that consolation game against Bos- ton College, Northeastern trailed by a bucket, 82-80, with 1:15 left. Mysteriously Calhoun told his club to hold for one, a decision which he undoub- tedly regrets. With just eight seconds left, Clark let an off-balance 28- footer fly, but the shot hit the front of the rim and fell into the hands of BC ' s Ernie Cobb. The rebound iced the game and the Huskies copped fourth place, dead last. Harvard, who upset the Eagles in the first round of the tourney, defeated BU easily in the final for first place. The losing drought contin- ued with losses to Fairleigh Dickinson (56-46) and Rider (107-82), but a John Clark buz- zer-beater against New Hamp- shire ended the five-game los- ing streak. The Huskies got a bit of revenge with a win over BU, but next came one of the nation ' s finest — Syracuse. The Orangemen, a tradi- tional national power and a team which made it to the finals of the NCAA tourney the year before, showed Northeastern what major Divi- sion I hoop was all about. Before an enthusiastic crowd of more than 6,000, Syr- acuse busted a 12-12 tie in the early goings to take a 53-34 advantage into halftime. The lead was as much as 28 before the Huskies roared back in the final 10 minutes to make it respectable, 87-75. Against the better Division II clubs, Northeastern squeaked by Bentley, 81-80 and Assumption, 63-62. In both cases Clark was the hero. Against the Falcons of Bentley Northeastern trailed by two with 30 seconds remaining, but Clark stole the inbounds pass and tied things with an eight- foot jumper from the baseline. His free throws with just 12 seconds left in the overtime gave the Husks the win. One game later against the Grey- hounds, he sank two more pressure free throws with six seconds showing in regulation, as the Huskies overcame a 53- 41 deficit with 13 minutes to play. After surprisingly tough win over St. Anselm ' s, Northeast- ern lost four of their five remaining games. Against Yankee Conference champion UMass, the Hounds led with three minutes to play but folded to a cool Minutemen club while against Holy Cross, the consolation winner of the ECAC playoffs, it was virtu- ally the same story. So John Clark, the king of Husky basketball for four years along with his 20 point per game average departs for possibly greater stardom somewhere else. Backcourt mate Paul " Wally " Walsh will also graduate.

Whether it is Har- vard, BC, BU, Graham Junior College or Miss Smith ' s Secre- tarial School, the outcome will not differ. Our boys in black and blue, excuse me, black and red, will manage somehow to come up on the short end of the score. It ' s gotten to the point where the Boston newspapers and the Beanpot fans come to find Northeastern synonymous with being the Have-nots, i.e. never winning the tournament and almost always losing both games.

Those aforemen- tioned phrases may fool you a few times, but after a while, they begin to sound like a bro- ken record. However, it all adds up to the same thing, whether you want to call it; defeated, beaten, nipped, whipped, edged, knocked off, crushed, blanked, zipped; it ' s a loss. And then the immortal phrase will follow, " Wait till next year. " In the five years you folks have been here, the hockey team has won two games, both in the consolation round, while the b-ball team has won only two games since 1971 and in their only championship sojourn Harvard embarrassed the Northeastern gang, 105-63. After winning two consecu- tive consolation games against BC, even the most cynical and skeptical fan, and that ' s me, could see Northeastern defeat- ing BC in this year ' s first round and actually making it into the finals. How short-sighted I was. I mean, Northeastern only had the highest scoring line in the country, the incomparable SAP, excuse me again, GAP line returning intact. The entire defensive unit was back and the goaltenders could have only improved with graduation. Plus, the whole team had another year of experience and here they were p laying the team, they had beaten two straight years in the first round. Alas, once again it was not to be. BC won 5-3. To quote a cohort of mine, " the perennial wait till next year program " struck again. The Round-ball Blues Before the season started, Coach Jim Calhoun, told me this year ' s schedule would be the most difficult Northeastern has ever faced. " Look at who we play, Syra- cuse, UMass, Holy Cross, and Boston College. " " Hold on coach, BC isn ' t on the schedule. " " We ' ll be playing them in the Beanpot, " said the always optimistic coach, of course what he was implying was BC and his boys would battle for the title. The Eagles became the ques- A momentary triumph against Boston College. tion mark team of New Eng- land this season and when Beanpot time came around Harvard shot down the Eagles. So much for the BC-NU finale. The Huntington Ave. boys were playing winless BU. Win- less, as in no victories, all losses etc. Keeping up with the Bean- pot tradition and making their coach ' s words come true, Northeastern somehow man- aged to lose to BU, then to BC, anyway. So after the 1976 Beanpot, Northeastern has come up empty handed, zilch, nothing and easily retained their dubi- ous honor of being the North- eastern Havenots. One thing is for sure, at the end of any Beanpot game with Northeastern in it, the score will show the Opposition: Too Many. Northeastern: Not Enough. — Chuck Balnius Another year that wasn ' t This was the year of promise for the hockey team, the cli- max of coach Fern Flaman ' s five year plan to bring a win- ning hockey program to North- eastern. As is custom, an air of opti- mism pervaded the pre-season forecasts, accompanied by the annual rhetoric, but this time it seemed justifiable. The reasons for such opti- mism were many. The GAP (goal a period) line of Charlie Huck, Jim Martel, and Dave Sherlock, the highest scoring line in Northeastern history and in the nation the previous year was returning intact. The Huskies possessed three young, talented goaltenders, a strong defensive corps, and seemingly, the additional lines to provide the much needed scoring balance to back up the GAP unit. The rebuilding years had produced a team destined for the ECAC playoffs, possibly a first Beanpot championship and, at the very least, a win- ning season. But by the midpoint of the campaign, the air of optimism was a cloud of doubt. The sea- son that had started out so optimistically was soon one of desperation, and eventually, at its lowest point, one in which the Huskies were simply play- ing out a string. What, in fact, had hap- 1975-76 Results 5rd: 9-l» 6 atPri 2 Newl 6 atNe A Provider! 2 R.P.I. 6 Provraerfce 5 ' 3 Boston University 4 3 St. Lawrence 8 6 Boston College l 8 at Penn 10 at Bowdoin 4 3 Vermont 4(ot) 2 at Dartmouth j i 6 5 Colgate J 8 3 Boston College S 5 4 at Providence 3 2 Harvard 4 8 at R.P.I. j7 at Colgate (ppd. fluL « t. 8 Merrimack , M 1 3 1 at Brown ' 1 9 5 Clarkson 1 7 6 at UMass 1J f 2 2 at Boston University 6 R.P.I.

The answers to these questions are both simple and complex, easily discernable and desperately indefinable. Before the season started, the Huskies were dealt a series of tough, unexpected blows. First, three key players decided not to return to North- eastern, two of which opted for the Canadian Junior Leagues. Then sophomore Jim McElroy, who was expected to start the season in goal, under- went an operation sitting him out until late in the season when it was too late. Of course the old Boston Arena as a home ice didn ' t help the situation. That prob- lem was augmented when the City of Boston bought the hulk in pre-season, leaving the team with no place to practice hockey. Inconsistency was another problem, proven by the fact that the Huskies longest win- ning streak all year was two games, and the scoring balance that seemed so assured at the start of the campaign never developed. The entire scoring responsi- bility was placed on the GAP line, and for as long as they could they carried the team on their shoulders, but it was sim- ply a load they could not carry, a load no line on any level could have carried. The season started pleas- antly enough, as the Huskies won two of their first three games, the only defeat was hard fought to a tough Har- vard squad. Then came the turning point in the season, the twist that not only triggered a five game win- less streak, but the eventual collapse as well. It came in the form of back-to-back heart- breaking defeats to the Univer- sity of New Hampshire, 3-2 in overtime, and an 8-6 defeat which included an open net tally. The Huskies finally broke the winless streak with a 6-5 overtime win over Providence, and then played a game which produced their finest hour. Northeastern fought Boston University, the nation ' s second ranked team down to the wire before succumbing 4-3. Fresh- man goalie Jim Metz turned in a startling performance, turn- ing away 45 out of the 49 shots he faced. But the Huskies did not keep up the inspired play they exhibited against BU, and lost their next two to St. Lawrence and Boston College, as their record dipped to a dismal 3-8- 1, and the time to turn things around was dwindling rapidly. The Huskies responded briefly, routing Pennsylvania (8-1) and Bowdoin (10-4), but all they were really doing was attempting to stave off the inevitable. The rest of the season was simply a nightmare, as the Huskies suffered frustrating defeat after frustrating defeat. The Beanpot was no excep- tion, as the Huskies frustration in the exclusive tournament reached its twenty-fourth con- secutive year as they lost to eventual champion BC, 5-3, in the qualifying round, and, 4-2, to Harvard in the consolation game. What consolation that could be extracted from such a frus- trating campaign was pro- vided by the greatest line in Northeastern history, and one of the best in college hockey history as well. They played together for Husky captain Duncan Finch, top, collides with Dartmouth forward Mike Leigh during the Huskies ' 6-2 loss to " The Green. " Below, career scoring leader nets final collegiate goal (93rd) in his final game versus Boston University, Feb. 28. four years, and Jim Martel, Charlie Huck, and Dave Sher- lock became Northeastern ' s one, two, and four all-time leading scorers. In a 4-3 overtime loss to Ver- mont, Martel became the Huskies all-time leading scorer, surpassing the record established by Art Chisholm (1958-61) with his 183rd point. The smooth skating winger was also the leading scorer in the ECAC during the season with a total of 66 points. His career totals are simply incred- ible, and it may take just as long to break his mark as it took to conquer the Chisholm mark. He amassed 93 career goals and 117 assists for a total of 210 points. The second component of the GAP unit was Sherlock. His hard work and aggressive corner digging provided the other members of the line with the scoring opportunities they so often received. He became Bob France, top, makes scoring bid during Beanpot consolation loss to Harvard, Jim Martel, bottom, fires slapper at BU goalie Mike Devlin, who made the save. Huskies lost this one 4-3, as they attempted to upset the nationally ranked Terriers. The GAP Line the Huskies fourth all-time leading scorer collecting a total of 72 career goals and 100 assists for 172 points. The third member of the GAP trio was Huck. A flam- boyant skater as well as a tena- cious forechecker as the team possessed, he became North- eastern ' s second all-time lead- ing scorer with a total of 192 points (93 goals, 99 assists). He was a rough checker as well as possessing a perfect attitude to the game and his team. He was never intimi- dated by anyone, despite the fact that many of the opposing centers topped his 5 ' 9 " height. So the year that started out so promising eventually left a trail of bitter frustration. The fi nal record 9-16-1 gave the critics more than ample rea- sons to come thundering forth. But despite the outcome, the final record and disappoint- ment could not tarnish the accomplishments of the GAP line, who made a seemingly unending year exciting with as brilliant a performance that three college hockey players could ever match, anywhere. — Stephen Silva Dave Sherlock moves in on Boston College goalie Paul Skidmore scoring on a wrist shot in first round action of the Beanpot. Crew Developing new talent Ernie Arlett doesn ' t like to use the term " rebuilding, " when referring to his outlook on an upcoming crew season. Instead he calls it " developing new talent. " In the spring of 1975, Arlett ' s eleventh as head coach of crew, he was faced with the task of " developing new tal- ent. " " It took a couple of races to get the crew together, " said Arlett, reflecting on the sea- son. " We had lost our cox and a few other veterans, one who was member of the ' 73 Eastern Spring Championship crew. We had to get new talent. " The 1975 season did not hold a promising beginning for the crew. After opening the season with two losses, a final record of 3-2, a fourth in the Eastern Sprints and a third in the Intercollegiate Rowing Cham- pionships (IRAs) weren ' t too bad. The uncertainty of good weather in April and a solid crew, along with the choppy waters of the Charles River that hampers all who row on it, Arlett and his boys knew their work was cut out for them. It was a challenge. Arlett had the bodies, but just where to put them for a winning combo was not real- ized until after the two losses. A lot of juggling was in the preseason and early season act. Captain John Irving, the last member of the ' 73 Eastern Sprint Champ and Henley finalist was a definite in the five seat. The only others to remain in their " home seat " were bow Mark Lucas and I I 34 Coach Ernie Arlett coxswain Mike Winer. The six spots left were occupied, but juxtaposition would soon set in. In the opener with Rutgers and Yale at Princeton, the crew didn ' t race well taking second with a 6:17.8 time, 5.4-1 seconds behind Rutgers. The! Huskies were using the newlj christened Asa S. Knowles shell made of fiberglass anc named after the former presi- dent. Knowles, now chancelloi of the university, is an avic rowing fan. Next came a race on thfij Charles with Boston Univer sity and MIT. The Huskies were awarded the dreadfu outside lane on a very rough day for racing. The crew los- by nearly 14 seconds to a find Engineer crew that was to fin ish second in the IRAs. The crew was now 0-2 witll some excellent teams left t( face in the schedule. Followinj the MIT loss, the Huskie moved to the Harlem River U row against Columbia ancJ Brown. In this race thi Knowles was stacked away iiJ favor of the old familia wooden " Corsair " shell. Whether it was the replace ment of the shell or the final arrival of the crew, the team came away with a 1.8 second victory over Brown. It was not a big enough margin for Arlett and changes where in mind. " It was not unexpected for us to lose to MIT, " said Arlett. We knew they had a fine crew and we knew it would take time for the crew to adjust. " The adjusting came when he brought up junior varsity member Paul Martindale and moved Tom Lowe. Martindale moved into the stroke position (opposite the The crew tank, in the basement of the Cabot Cage cox) and the 6 foot 6 Lowe, the 1976 captain, went to his right- ful place in the number six seat. " A lot of credit should go to Tom (Lowe), " said Arlett. He is a steady oarsman. He helped the crew out by being so versa- tile. When we moved him from stroke to the six seat he was back where he belonged. " Martindale was the key, however. He came up from the JV ' s and did an outstanding job at stroke. " The effects of the moves were immediate. The rest of the seats were set with doubles partners, George Dougan and John Sladek in two and three, and sophomore Murray Hal- ton and senior Mike Manhard in the seven and four slots, respectively. UMass, a power in the small college ranks, came to town as the first test to the moves made by Arlett in his eight. The four- length Husky victory proved the moves were positive, a nice way to go into the Eastern Sprints in Princeton the upcoming week. In the Sprints the Huskies performed well for a revamped crew, taking fourth place. In 72 and 73 the crew won the event and in 74 they took third. A tradition had evolved and it was continued with a fine showing in 1975. The Huskies rowed well in the morning trials, finishing one-half a length behind cross- town rival Harvard. " If.the finals had been held in the morning I think we would have won, " said Arlett after the race. " After the heat the crew felt they could have rowed better. " A slow start hurt the crew in the afternoon finals. The best race of the season occurred shortly afterward when the team recorded the second-best time (5:52.5) ever on the Charles in defeating Penn and winning the Burke Cup for the third straight year. In the final regatta, the IRAs in Syracuse, the crew captured third, just 1.5 seconds behind MIT, who had beaten the Huskies by 14 seconds in their regular season tilt. It was the second third a Husky crew has received in its ten-year history. Powerhouse Wisconsin won for the third consecutive year. In the winter of 1976, news broke that Arlett was going to retire after the 1977 season. The " English Gentleman " was going to call it a career. So as the 1976 crew pre- pared for another season, the seniors knew this would be their last shot at winning the Eastern Sprints for their coach. They gave it everything they had. — Steve Lowe — Dennis Naughton Capt. John Irving ■I Indoor Track Three in a row Assistant coach Everett Baker called it the Thursday before the New England Indoor Track Championships began. " It should be a three team meet between us, Boston College and the University of Connecticut, " he said, " and our chances of winning it again are excellent. " Baker could not have been more correct as Northeastern won it for the third straight year, piling up 54% points to Boston College ' s 47 and UConn ' s 34. Since the meet began in 1969 the Huskies have won it five of eight years. Coach Irwin Cohen Forty-three teams from New England had contestants entered in what head coach Irwin Cohen feels is THE team crown to win in the indoor track season. " The IC4A ' s and the NCAA ' s are more individ- ual types of meets while the New England ' s is a team meet, " Cohen said on the day the meet began. Northeastern was enjoying a fairly successful season lead- before the New Englands. " We should win it if we don ' t take the gas, " Cohen said. Friday, the 28th of February was a warm day, with the sun ing up to the New England ' s. " When you lose a lot of people to graduation like we did, you would consider this a rebuild- ing year, " said Baker, " this is not the case. Basically this is a young team and we just had to hope the freshmen did as well as they did, " he added. The Huskies lost a close opening dual meet to Harvard, 60-58, but came back to win a tri-meet with UMass and Bos- ton University. Finishing sec- ond again to Harvard in the Greater Boston Champion- ships, 95-67, two easy wins over Rhode Island and the University of New Hampshire found the Huskies feeling fairly confident the week shining through the windows of Northeastern ' s Cabot Cage. As the field events began BC ' s entry in the 35-pound weight, Joe Dray said to Northeastern ' s weight coach, Joe Donahue, " Hey coach, why don ' t we turnup the heat. " Contestants and coaches looked relaxed before the first event of a meet that everybody wanted to win but few really had a chance. Donahue was heard to remark, " I was just over the Amalfi sipping a little white wine and eating a little fettecinni. " As officials called contest- ants for the check-in of the first events teammates, specta- tors lined the area where he event was to be held. Ron Chambers, Northeast- em ' s freshman long-jumper, from Kingston, Jamaica, opened the event with a jump of 22 feet lOVa inches, his best jump of the year. In fact, all his jumps were better than the one preceding. Chambers mark stood for a while but eventually several bettered it, it was good enough however, to get him into the finals. Boston College ' s Dave Nel- son, who eventually won the event almost didn ' t make it into the finals, fouling on his first two jumps but soaring 23 feet 1V3 inches on his last attempt to take the lead going into the finals. In the finals, UMass ' s Ken Adamson took the lead with a jump of 23 feet 8 inches and looked like he might win it until Nelson let go with a jump of 23 feet 8% inches winning the event and setting a meet record in the process. A bit of excitement was aroused when on his last jump, Chambers flew 24 feet, only to foul on the attempt. One offi- cial called for a measure of the jump while another called a foul. The foul stood and Chambers finished third. " I would have been happy with just a place, " Baker said. The triple jump followed and Chambers again opened with a good leap of 47 feet 11% inches which easily put him in the finals. On his first jump of the finals, Chambers hopped, skipped and jumped himself to a school record of 49 feet 9% inches easily winning the event. Northeastern ' s Dan Bent finished fifth. " Everett is now a great triple jump coach, " quipped Dona- hue after Chambers picked up his medal. While the two events were going on, the po le vault was taking place on the other side of the Cage. The pole vault went on until the sunset, even- tually Mark MacCracken of Rhode Island won with a record jump of 16 feet 1 inch. The Huskies ' Paul Grant tied for fifth with a jump of 14 feet 9 inches. The last event in the Cage was the 35-pound weight throw, the rest of the events to be held at Tufts Friday night and Saturday afternoon. As Northeastern ' s Bill John- ston stepped into the ring to take his turn, the Cage quieted until the only sounds to be heard were Johnston ' s feet scuffling in the ring. He whirled once, twice, three times releasing the weight with a grunt that echoed throughout the Cage. The ball sailed up and out, finally landing 60 feet % inches from the ring as the Cage erupted and Johnston ran from the ring, arms raised tri- umphantly over his head. His throw bettered his own per- sonal best and won the event ahead of Southern Connecti- cut ' s Dwayne Dorrigan, who had thrown 63 feet the week before. Leading after four events, with 16V2 points to Rhode Island ' s 10 and Southern Con- necticut ' s 9%, the Huskies and the rest of the field moved to Tufts for the preliminary run- ning events with the finals to be held on Saturday. Losing the lead by a half a point after BC ' s Keith Francis won the mile in record time of 4:05, Northeastern regained the lead for good when John Flora and Mike Buckley fin- ished two-three in the two mile behind Providence ' s John Tracy who set another record with a time of 8:47. The Huskies wrapped up the meet for the third year in a row when the mile relay team finished third and the two- mile relay team shattered the record set in 1975 by Boston College. Leading by only 3% points Northeastern needed only a third in the two mile relay to win, but the foursome of Billy Davenport, Fred Frelow, Frank Mortimer and Mark Lech had other things in mind, as they were timed in 3:18.9 breaking BC ' s mark of 3:19.2. In all, the eleven Husky scorers came through with the best performance of their careers. " That ' s right, " Cohen said, " Every one of our guys bettered their previous best efforts. That ' s what I call a real team effort. " Seven meet records were set in the two day meet. " When it was all on the line, ,our guys really came up with the big efforts, " Cohen beamed after the Huskies became the first team to win the title three years in a row. — Dom Friscino Baseball Huskies bat .500 It was strictly a case of inconsistency. From one day to the next, nothing could be taken for granted. Maybe the plight of the Northeastern baseball team in 1975 was best exemplified in the two meet- ings with eventual Greater Boston Champion Brandeis. The Huskies opened the sea- son with the Waltham club, winning in extra innings, 5-4. Near the end of the season, with the Judges in the thick of the GBC title race, Northeast- ern was its old inconsistent self, losing 15-4. But the roller coaster effect eventually evened out, as Coach Tinker Connelly ' s club finished 12-12, winning their final two games over Worces- ter Poly Tech (2-1) and Dart- mouth (12-1). Individually, the Huskies were led by rugged catcher Steve Kring. The savior of the up and down year, Kring bat- ted a record .403 on the season, eclipsing the old mark set by John Quinlan in 1958.

Dartmouth, Kring entered the contest with a .389 average. The Dartmouth pitcher was fireballer Jim Beatty, a New York Yankee draftee and one of the Ivy League ' s best. Undaunted, Kring collected three straight hits, one a triple, to set the new mark. The top hurler of the year, Bob Williamson, probably couldn ' t throw a ball through a window, but his array of pitches included an opponent- baffler called the slow ball. Williamson ' s pinpoint accu- racy and off-speed pitches earned him a 3-1 record and a 3.7 ERA in 41% innings. Char- lie Wright, a late season bloomer, led in the earned run average column with a 2.02 mark. Wright finished the sea- son 3-0. Junior captain Jimmy Walker, the ace of the staff his first two years, slumped to a 3- 4 slate and a 3.37 ERA. Reliever Mark Krentzman had the dubious distinction of leading the pitchers in three categories; most games (10), least innings pitched (3%) and highest ERA (12.27). Both the season ' s highlight and lowlight came against Harvard, a team the Huskies hadn ' t beaten since 1965. In the teams ' first battle, Harvard won, 3-1. One crucial call changed the complexion of the game. In the seventh frame, with the Huskies up, 1- 0, Harvard pitcher Dan Dris- coll drove Northeastern left- fielder Mark McHugh back to the fence. McHugh ran back, timed his leap perfectly, caught the ball and then fell through the flimsy picket fence. The sec- ond base umpire called it an out, but the home plate umpire overruled and called it a home run. Connelly and the team protested, but Harvard won the game, 3-1. But it was sweet revenge for Northeastern in the rematch. Walker hurled a masterful game in shutting out the Crim- son, 3-0, to end the 10-year ihex. Rightfielder Dave Modugno was the hitting star blasting a hanging curve into the outer regions of left field for a two-run homer. All seemed well when Walker struck out the same Driscoll for the final out. The tide had turned. " It wasn ' t easy, but the frustration is finally over, " said Walker after the Harvard victory. " It was the greatest win of my life. " — Glenn S. Feldman £ngt$ 8 e m j e s?r Vvf Gymnastics On the beam • Sally Gordon got up from the mat on which she was leaning as she watched the tri- meet Northeastern was hosting with Bridgewater State and MIT in mid-February. She got up and walked to the back of the gym and began to practice the beam routine she would perform in five minutes before the crowd of nearly 150. When she got her chance on the narrow wooden strip, she scored a sub-par 4.15. But, the all around competitor and future coaching aspirant regis- tered a 7.5 on the floor, 6.6 on the uneven parallel bars and a 5.2 in the vaulting for a fine evening of gymnastics. • Sue Scagnelli from Fram- ingham, approached the un- even parallel bars with the confidence that had made her one of the top high school gymnasts in Massachusetts. Before starting, she shifted her shoulders, an imitation of the dance move her teammates who compete in the floor exer- cise use. Her superior, swiftly composed routine went off perfectly as she scored a sea- son ' s best of 7.8. But her act was promptly upstaged, for the first time of the season, by a Bridgewater State opponent who scored 8.15. • Pam Davis had gone to the showers to get ready for a vic- tory celebration the entire 1976 women ' s gymnastics team was having at Punters Pub. It just happened to be Ladies ' night. The Huskies had pulled out a victory. It was the worst and the best kind of victory. It was the worst because it was close and it was the best because, for the first time in the five- year history of the team, they had scored over 75 total team points. Up from the showers came Pam Davis, a tiny but muscu- lar girl. When she entered the empty gym to talk to her coach she didn ' t know that her 6.05 score for her floor routine had been changed to 6.8, vaulting the team over the seemingly unreachable 75 point mark. " I don ' t believe it, " she said as she danced and jubilantly hugged her coach Dorett Hope, " I just don ' t believe it. " North- eastern scored 75.45 for the winning margin over second- place finisher Bridgewater which scored 72.30. MIT took third with a 59.0. An attitude of high spirit and enthusiasm was devel- oped by the women gymnasts of 1976, second only to the emotion-filled post-game fes- tivities they enjoyed at Punters Pub. They were now 5-2, with the only losses coming at a tri- meet the previous weekend at the State University of New York. " I consider this team to be a success not only in the good scores, but in the attitudes, respect and rapport they have between one another, " said Coach Hope. " The desire that each of them has to do well is unbelievable. " " Ever since I ' ve been on the team everyone has been behind everyone else, " said 1976 captain, Heather Glen- ney, a senior Criminal Justice major who arrived at North- eastern in 1972, the same year Hope took over the team. " When I came to Northeast- ern I wanted to be on the swim team, but it didn ' t work out, " said Glenney. " I joined the gymnastics team and if it wasn ' t for Mrs. Hope I wouldn ' t have stayed on. She taught me everything. " " On this year ' s team every- one was willing to help out everyone else. No one was selfish. The kids on the team and Mrs. Hope were always pulling for you. Many times I did my routine for Mrs. Hope even though I was injured or aching. She didn ' t push you, she just made you want to do your routine. " In 1974 the team enjoyed their best record with an 11-1 mark, but dipped to 5-6 in ' 75. Although the record did slip the team scores improved. Hit- ting 75 in the Bridgewater State-MIT tri-meet was a mile- stone indicating they had truly arrived. ■ " Every girl on the team was Capt. Heather Glenney practicing on balance beam. out for a good time and to work hard, " said Sally Doolit- tle, a senior who was on the team the first four years. Dool- ittle served as an assistant and an inspiration for the 1976 team. " Sally really was an impetus for us and made us work hard and strive to perform well, " added Glenney. " I think the spirit here is great, " said Sally Gordon, a senior anthropology major and probably the most skilled member of the team. Gordon is an instructor at the Montvale School of Gymnastics in Woburn, coming to Northeast- ern after transferring from the University of Maine. " When you have twelve people behind you and, in reality, competing with you, it ' s fantastic, " said Gordon. " The great thing is that every- one on the team is psyching each other out, like what Sue Scagnelli does before she com- petes on the unevens. " " This team is really tight, " said freshman Norma Costain, a first-time member of a gym- nastics team. " The thing on this year ' s team is that we worked together a lot and helped each other out. Every- body got much better. " The 1976 edition of the women ' s gymnastics squad was gymnastics at its best at Northeastern. The women were inspired, strengthened and fashioned from within and from without. The cour- age to get on the foam-matted stage and artistically create before judges and spectators takes inner strength from twelve teammates. So, within a university where many warranted accu- sations of widespread apathy run rampant, a team with overflowing spirit survives. Not because there is any digni- fied history to uphold, but because it is a unified team of individuals. If that ' s a contra- diction in terms, then it ' s a contradiction that seems to be a winner for the Northeastern women ' s gymnastics team. — Dennis Naughton Co-Capt. Sally Gordon J ■J } J Z a Joanne Fritts 1 1 Ml .W-. . ... » . • t Lynn Arturi Hate fhem midseason blues When the women ' s basket- ball team lost to Bridgewater State on February 18, the fourth in five games, the chance for an appearance at the state regionals also was lost. " The season is by no means over, " said coach Jeanne Row- lands after the loss. " We still have a chance to reverse our 5- 8 record of last year in the last three games. " Such optimism following a dismal middle portion of the schedule had to be rewarded. After the Bridgewater game the record stood at 5-5, with two of the final three games at home. The reward just par- tially came, as the team could manage just two wins finishing the year with a winning record of 7-6. Rowland ' s and the team ' s goal of an 8-5 season fell short in the last contest of the year, when the women lost to Rhode Island, 79-63, at the Dockser Gym. The team started the season very well, winning four of their first five games. The good start indicated that all was okay with no hint that the mid- season blues would arrive. In the opening spurt the squad knocked off Boston Col- lege (55-42), Brown (69-48) and Plymouth St. (88-42). Intermin- gled was a Providence defeat in which their only fault, a lack of good height, became evident. In the BC game, the team played so well they might have taken on the powerful Eagle men ' s team. Nancy Dizio, a junior from Winchester, pop- ped in 14 points to lead the Husky charge. Center Joanne Fitts had nine points and co- captain Laurie Frizzell con- tributed eight towards the win. In the Providence loss, the Huskies succumbed to a height disadvantage, their fast-break and tough man-to-man defense failing as a counter measure. During the midseason slump, in which the team lost to UMass, Worcester and run- aways by Southern Connecti- cut State College (SCSC) and Bridgewater, was a lesson. It was a lesson put to good use in the closing games when the effort for a winning season was all out. Frizzell, the senior spark- plug of the team, finished the year with 130 points and 82 rebounds. Lynn Arturi, the other co-captain, chipped in with close to 140. Arturi tried out for the US Olympic team in the Regionals trials at SCSC in April, but didn ' t make the team. The center, Joanne " Fritta " Fitts, came to the team the same way Henry Finkel joined the Boston Celtics in 1970 when Bill Russell retired. As the only six-footer Fitts was required to fill the sneak- ers of 1974 team leader April Goodwin who transfered to Boston University. Fitts scored 191 points and grabbed 115 rebounds on the season. The pressure-packed final three games started off with the women routing Keene St., 74-54. Arturi, Frizzell and Fitts led the Huskies with 19 points each. Next came the New Hamp- shire game up in Durham. The trio of Arturi, Frizzell and Fitts led the team once again. Friz- zell ' s four clutch free throws in the final two minutes secured the 66-63 victory. Friz- zell finished with 15 points, Arturi 14 and Fitts 13. The final game was the make or break game of the sea- son. Would they finish with an | 8-5 record? If the Huskies were to do it, they would have to get past Rhode Island. But the Rams refused to yield. In the Massachusetts Asso- ciation of Athletics for Women Tournament in Worcester early in March, the Huskies met a stubborn UMass team in the first round and lost, 74-64 Fitts scored 23 in the losing cause. — Ed McDonough — Dennis Naughton Chris Brown Streaking to 7-1 record They say that it happens to all athletic teams. It can last a whole season or a few games. It can hurt and then help a team. It is called a slump. The field hockey team had a slump in 1975. It was a one- game slump and they finished the season with a 7-1 record. Starting the season off with a five-game winning streak, it might have been apparent to the players that a slump could occur, but it wasn ' t anticipated in the least. Not until the UMass game which they won 2-1. " We led at halftime 2-0, " said Coach Marilyn Cairns, " and played the second half waiting for them to score the tying and winning goals. We played very poorly. " Any coach would enjoy weathering a slump like the one Cairns did with her team in the fall of ' 75. Before the slump the team had amassed 18 goals in five games and allowed just four. The team was led by fresh- man winger Sue Paylor ' s eight goals, all-around perform- ances by seniors Jane Gal- lagher (team MVP) and Laurie Frizzell, and goalie Lenore Erwin. Cindy Casey, who was a College All-star in 1974 and traveled to the National Field Hockey Tournament that year, had an off concluding season finishing with one goal. " I wasn ' t surprised with Sue ' s (Paylor) play, " said Cairns, " I saw her play in high school and knew she would be effective. Credit should go to team MVP Jane Gallagher, who was called upon to switch positions four times. She was a steady player who could do everything well. " The opening season streak was awesome and the slump, which prompted the final con- quests over Southern Connect- icut and New Hampshire, was not really serious. It couldn ' t have been if they came out of it so well. The season opened with Plymouth State and a 3-1 win beginning the five-game win streak which ended with a 4-0 loss to Springfield. In the Plymouth game Paylor scored two goals, including the game- winner. The next week the team downed Rhode Island. 2-0, behind the fine goaltending of Erwin. Right wing Amy Kublin notched the first and deciding tally. " This was the best season for Lenore, " said Cairns about her goalkeeper. " She allowed just eight goals in the regular season, four coming in the Springfield loss. She was really superb all year. " The streak continued with wins over Radcliffe (6-1), Bridgewater (5-1) and UMass (2-1). The team was perform- ing well defensively led by Erwin and fullback Gallagher. They were also putting the points on the board. The UMass game, however, was too shaky for Cairns. Some- thing was giving. Next was Springfield and the streak was still alive. In rainy weather, the Chiefs took command from the first whis- tle running away with the shutout win. After the game Cairns warned of a " few rear- rangements in mind. " The rearrangements came and one was the moving of all- purpose co-captain Frizzell from the defensive post of halfback to a inner forward position. Frizzell continued to play excellently as she set up goals and scored four herself. " It helped get us back on the track, " said Cairns. The biggest victorie s of the season, according to Cairns came in the final two games. These games would determine if the squad was sound. Could they come back from a shake- up and a streak-breaking loss? Paylor led the way in the two contests, as she had done all year, scoring the Huskies three goals in the 2-0 Southern Connecticut and 1-0 New Hampshire wins. It was an appropriate manner to end the regular season and a fine way to go into the three-day East- ern Association of Intercollegi- ate Athletics for Women Tour- ney at UMass that started Nov. 13. It was rainy and muddy when the women met UConn in the opening round of the 16- team affair. Paylor was again the leader as she scored twice in the 5-0 win. Frizzell, Casey and Kathi Kearney each con- tributed a goal as goalie Erwin registered her fourth shutout. Due to the inclement weather and unplayable field, the tourney moved to the arti- ficial turf down the Mass Pike at Westfield State. There, the team was ousted by Colgate, 3- 1, in the quarterfinal game. The Huskies were forced to play without Paylor, who con- tracted the flu the night before and could not play. " Playing without Paylor was a psychological down, " said Cairns, " We really could have used Susan ' s scoring. " It ' s ironic that the high-scor- ing member wasn ' t able to play in the final game. A game that could have prolonged the season and send the team to the national tourney. It was a successful fall that no one can complain about. How could anyone complain about a five- game winning streak, a one- game slump and a 7-1 record. — Dennis Naughton — Dave Schonf eld Awaiting the charge. The Olympic team If you ' re planning to take a trip up to the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal don ' t be surprised if you catch a glimpse of a couple of familiar faces in the coaching ranks. Two Northeastern coaches, crew coach Ernie Arlett and Director of Women ' s Athletics and women ' s basketball coach Jeanne Rowlands were selected to help prepare the United States ' athletes for the Olympics in their respective sports. Arlett will act as head coach for the sculling events (two oars per man) of which there are three; singles, doubles and a new addition to Olympic competition, the quadruple sculls (four men, two oars per man). Rowlands will be the manager for the US Olympic Women ' s Basketball team. This is the first year women ' s basketball has been an event in the Olympics. For Arlett, international competition is nothing new. In 1948 he was Finland ' s Olympic crew coach. He has brought Husky crews to the Royal Hen- ley Regatta at Henley-on-the- Thames, England three times, most recently in ' 72 and ' 73 when the crew was runner-up to the Russians. In his more than 50 years of crew involvement, Arlett has been a member of and coached many teams of inter- national distinction, but his specialty has been sculling. " It ' s a new experience for me to be involved with the USA in the Olympics, " said Arlett. " I ' ve been traveling the country, going to Seattle, Wis- consin and to what I like to call ' Boat House Row ' in Phila- delphia, looking for sculling talent. It ' s here, but it has to be developed. " Arlett knows he will be fac- ing stiff competition from the Russians and the East and West Germans, but his counter-philosophy is a good one. " I don ' t believe in the adage ' competing is just as good as winning, ' " said Arlett in a serious tone. " If you believe that, you ' re already losing. My philosophy is to create a win- ning attitude and to create confidence to win and be first. " For Jeanne Rowlands, com- petition in the international market is also nothing new. She is a member of the Wom- en ' s Basketball Games Com- mittee which chose her for the managerial position. In 1973, Rowlands travelled to the World University Games with the US entry and in the fall of ' 75 she managed the US basketball team which failed to qualify for the ' 76 Olympics in South America at the Women ' s World Basket- ball Championships. Don ' t fret, however, the US is heav- ily favored to qualify with a stronger team at the Hamilton Tournament in Ontario three weeks before the Olympics begin. " My job as manager is to arrange uniforming, housing, feeding, and to make sure that all the coaches and players have to do is attend practice, " said Rowlands. " I will also act as the liaison between the team and the International Olympic Committee. " " The rewarding thing for me is having the chance to work with these world-class ath- letes. They have an amazing capacity to learn and have become skilled enough to be members of a group like this. " " In preparing a team for competition like this, the work is very hard, very emotional, but very gratifying. One can make some very long-lasting friends. The ability to meet people from your own country and other countries is fascinat- ing and most rewarding. " Rowlands assisted at the Northeast Regional trials at Southern Connecticut State College April 24 and 25. The competition at the National tri- als at Central Missouri Univer- sity in May was th e final stop for many women and their aspirations to make the team. " All the women who made it to the Nationals should have been prepared to be away from home, school, work or whatever they were doing until the Olympics are over on August 1st, " said Rowlands. Since the Olympics are in Montreal, Rowlands feels the omission of a real language barrier and travel problem, and no hassle with passports make her job easier. If being in Montreal she says, " it ' s going to be kind of a picnic. " Arlett ' s job, however, is not going to be any picnic, and he knows it. The US is not one of the best sculling countries, but he will be working diligently to change that. " This is the first year for the quad-sculls, " said Arlett, " but the formation of the first Olympic sculling camp (begin- ning June 6) at Princeton Uni- versity is just great. Princeton has the best facilities in the country in my estimation and Lake Carnegie (site of the East- ern Sprints) is a fine rowing lake. " Sculling is a very difficult art, taking many years to develop correctly. It has been a neglected art in the US. The quad-sculls have become quite popular in Europe where there is a multitude of top-class scul- lers. " Arlett says that former Husky standout Jim Dietz, who is internationally known, is the favorite to represent the US in the singles sculling event. But, he contends, anything can happen at the Princeton camp. " Seymour Cromwell, who won the Diamond Sculls at Henley 12 years ago, will be trying out, " said Arlett. " Sy is nearly 40-years old now, but has kept himself in fantastic shape. He has just as much chance as anyone to make the team because he has so much experience. " The Arlett formula for shap- ing a good sculler is basically some long distance running (stadium stairs, if possible) and some light weight training. " The scullers that make the team must be prepared to work and work real hard, " he says. " Many people have come up to me and said, ' maybe you ' ll come back with a Bronze ' , " said Arlett, " well, if I admit that, I ' m already losing. I ' m going for the Gold. " In the next few months Ernie Arlett will know if his travels to the rowing hotbeds of America were worthwhile. He has searched the country and fixed his mind on his goals for America in the Montreal extravaganza. The sculling clinics last November and again in March the name of the game. " When we were landing at Kennedy Airport in New York, a quiet came over the plane when the announcement to buckle our seat belts came across the loudspeaker, " said Rowlands. " When the wheels skimmed across the runway, the silence broke and everyone began to yell and applaud. The trip to at the Boston University boat house, the singles scull trials in late May, and the doubles and quad scull trials at the Prince- ton camp have given Arlett a team. Nine men will go into the competition with the Arlettian view of being a winner. Nine men will come home winners, period. Ernie Arlett would have it no other way. And what of Jeanne Row- lands ' basketball team, a team that hasn ' t qualified yet? On her Moscow trip in ' 73, made up of athletes much like the ones on the US women ' s bas- ketball team, she came to the conclusion that winning, in many instances, isn ' t always Russia had taught them what a great country they were com- ing back to. They had realized what America was all about. This is what is the most satis- fying aspect of international sports and I ' m glad to be a part of it. " The assignments Arlett and Rowlands accepted for the United States in the 1976 Sum- mer Olympics have been and will be pressing but learning ones. They are assignments that neither would trade for all the gold in Montreal, but it would all be worth it if a little gold came their way. — Dennis Naughton The of 1975 The end came on an anti-cli- mactic single. It was one of those mile bloopers, a " semi-whimper, " said Boston Globe columnist Ray Fitzgerald. Joe Morgan, the Cincinnati Reds ' second baseman, dunked a single in the ninth inning of the seventh game of the World Series, scoring Ken Griffey for what proved to be the series clincher. After six games and eight innings of thrills, a Texas leaguer had the audacity to land the final blow. But the 1975 World Series will be thought of in terms of a con- troversial Ed Armbrister bunt, of Fred Lynn lying unconscious after chasing a flyball into Fen- way ' s centerfield wall, a Carlton Fisk llth-inning lightning bolt into the leftfield screen, and a crafty, voodoo-like pitcher named Luis Tiant. Morgan ' s coup de grace ended a breathless and unforgettable season for the ' 75 edition of the Boston Red Sox. It will always be an unforgettable summer — from Tony C. to El Tiante to Spaceman Bill Lee to the sensational rookie pair — Fred Lynn and Jim Rice — to Yaz revisited to Fisk ' s clutch blast in game six of the series. The Red Sox surge to the American League East crown began in mid-May, after the Sox fell behind the front-running Yankees by four games. By early June the Sox had built their lead Carl Yastrzemski takes his familiar rip during seventh game of the 1975 World Series. to iour games. But in late June they took their only nosedive of the season, losing five of six games, including three straight to the pesky Cleveland Indians. June was an array of surprises. Tony Conigliaro ' s comeback ended with the Pawtucket farm club. But the Sox acquired sec- ond baseman Denny Doyle from the California Angels to fill in for the ailing Doug Griffin. Doyle, happy to finally be on a winning club, had the best year of his career. On June 18, Fred Lynn, the quiet rookie out of the University of Southern California, stunned the baseball world with three homeruns, a triple and a single for 10 runs batted in as the Sox crushed the Tigers in Detroit. Lynn missed a fourth round-trip- per by only three feet. That performance brought national attention to the 23-year- old rookie, who had played only a few games in the majors the previous year after an outstand- ing season with Pawtucket. Lynn would go on from there to win the 1975 Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player awards in the American League, the first player ever to win both in the same season. On June 23, catcher Carlton Fisk, haunted by numerous inju- ries for the past year, came back into the line-up and went on pro- vide the power at the plate and leadership behind it that the team needed. On June 29 Rogilio Moret out- dueled Catfish Hunter, 3-2, as Rick Burleson doubled home the winning run in the eighth inning. But the next day pitcher Dick Pole was hurling one of his finest games ever in the ninth inning against the Baltimore Orioles when a line drive off the bat of pinch hitter Tony Muser struck him flush on the face. Pole, who was coming into his own in early 1975, didn ' t return to the lineup until the tail end of the season. In early July, the Sox rebuilt their lead with the aid of a ten- game winning streak. Another streak which was both surprising and sudden was the 22-game hit- ting streak of the revitalized On July 2, Rick Wise almost put himself into the record books. He was just one out away from hurl- ing a no-hitter at Milwaukee ' s County Stadium, when former Bostonian George Scott unleashed one of his boomers. While in the National League, Wise had thrown a no-hitter against the St. Louis Cardinals and hit two homers in the same game. Speaking of homers, rookie outfielder Jim Rice, hit two against the Brewers, one of them the longest ever at the stadium. Rice, who was overshadowed by fellow rookie Lynn throughout the season, broke his hand during a September game and missed the final weeks of the season and the World Series. The Sox upped their lead to nine games when they took three of four from the Yankees in Shea Stadium. It sent the final curtain down for the Bronx Bombers, who had expected great things from outfielder Bobby Bonds, acquired in the off-season from the Giants. Spaceman Bill Lee and com- pany were now in orbit, but a nine-game lead after 105 games still guaranteed the Sox nothing. Orioles ' manager Earl Weaver gave his word that his club — which had floundered in the lower regions of the Al East pack for much of the season — would " gain a game a week. " The stubby little coach called it his " game-a-week plan. " The Birds became a constant shadow, a thorn in the side of the Sox and their fans. The Orioles taunted the Sox with predictions of another finishline takeover, a replay of the previous year. It almost happened again, but this year would prove different. This year the Sox had a healthy Carlton Fisk, a steady Rick Burle- son, a sensational Fred Lynn and Jim Rice, and a revitalized Louis Tiant. In early September, the Sox took two games from the Birds in Baltimore, and even the normally cautious Ray Fitzgerald officially buried the Orioles on the sports pages of the Boston Globe. The Orioles, however, returned from the grave shortly thereafter and hung just a few games behind the Sox. The night of September 15, the Sox and Orioles met at Fenway in a dream game. Luis Tiant, with his assortment of herky-jerky motions and the Orioles ' smooth Jim Palmer, eventual AL Cy Young Award winner, were the mound foes. The pitching was superb, but the difference in the game came off the bats of Rico Petrocelli and Carlton Fisk — two authoritarian blasts into the nets securing a 2-0 Boston win. The Sox clinched the title Sep- tember 28. when the Orioles, just four games behind, dropped a doubleheader to the Yankees. In shocking fashion, the Red Sox then took the AL playoffs from the Western Champion Oakland Athletics in straight sets — 7-1, 6-3, 5-3 — as the three-year reign of Reggie Jackson, Rollie Fingers, Sal Bando and Bert Cam- peneris ended. In the end. the superb pitching of Luis Tiant, Dick Drago and Rick Wise combined with the hit- ting and fielding heroics of " young " Carl Yastrzemski knocked the former champs off the throne. The World Series, seven thrill- ing games long, was one that either team could have won, a series that enthralled millions on national television and put base- ball, at least for two weeks in October, back in the spotlight it had enjoyed for decades before the rise of pro football in the 1960s. This year, a new batch of kids, namely Lynn, Rice, Burleson, Cecil Cooper, Dwight Evans and Fisk made up the new dream team. The experience of Yaz, Rico Petrocelli and Tiant com- bined with the energy, speed and power of the kids resulted in a nearly unbeatable mixture of tal- ent. For 1975, at least, the Red Sox were on top of the world, with the exception of Cincinnati. And the sportswriters and fans hailed the Sox as the next American League dynasty. At the Boston Baseball Writers Dinner in the winter, though, Earl Weaver just smiled. — Glenn S.

Boston won the July 2nd game, 6-3. Behind the bullpens in Fen- way Park is a collection of old grandstand seats and backless benches that are filled when- ever the Boston Red Sox play baseball at home. This area, known as the bleachers, looks like seats in any other ballpark. But during a game, the bleachers take on an atmosphere of their own. The people who are bleacher regulars are students, retired doctors, unemployed construction workers, busi- nessmen, nurses and anyone else who wants to watch a baseball game — for a little over a dollar — and have a good time, but not necessarily in that order. The bleacher fans at Fen- way have a tradition of keen baseball knowledge bordering on what some would call flaki- ness. The players generally get along well with the bleacher crowd, says Clif Keane, a vet- eran Boston baseball writer whose membership in the " knot hole gang " at old Braves ' Field make him an expert. Keane has been covering baseball for so long, the story goes, that his first assignment was to cover the announce- ment by Abner Doubleday that he had founded a new sport. Anyway, Keane says one particular Red Sox player in the 1950 ' s, Leo Kiely, got on exceptionally well with bleacher fans. " Once the Sox were in the middle of a long losing streak, " says Keane. " During one game, they (the fans) threw a black cat into the bullpen in the direction of Kiely. " Kiely dug a hole, buried the cat and the Sox pulled out the game. Next day, the Sox lost again. Kiely redug the hole and pulled out the cat. " Keane acknowledges the baseball acumen of the bleacher fans, but maintains that the girls who hang around the visitors ' bullpen aren ' t all that good-looking. Keane was probably the only one who took the time to look at them last year, though, as 1975, turned out to be a great year to concentrate on the Red Sox, who finally won a pennant. On opening day, people were lined up for the $1.50 bleacher tickets two hours before game time and the lines moved more slowly than usual. And the crowds kept coming all year. To get a seat, you had to come early — not that most bleacher fans don ' t arrive early anyway. Half the fun is watching batting practice and talking with the players before the game. But the ultimate thrill, espe- cially for the younger kids, is to coax a baseball from a player, usually a visiting player shagging fly balls. " Hey, Bobby Darwin! How ' bout a ball, huh? C ' mon, you ' re my favorite player, Bobby, c ' mon toss it up here. You don ' t have to pay for it, what do you care? Ah, you faggot, you never could play the outfield. " " Hey, Blyleven, how about showing me that great arm of yours, c ' mon, throw one up here . . . " And so it goes. But once the game starts, the bleachers are all baseball, unless you ' re sitting way up in the centerfield section, where the whiskey and wine crowd hangs out. They don ' t bother anyone until around the eighth or ninth inning, when they are feeling the effects of their chugging. Strange noises emanate from that direction — a combi- nation of Mitch Miller and a drowning rhino. If there ' s a lull in the action, some fans take to shouting compliments to visiting center- fielders. " Northrup, you ' re old enough to play for the Reds- kins, but you have to get your hair cut first! " And what about the night Apollo-Soyez passed over Fen- way? From the third inning on, shouts of " There it is! " would go up and so would everyone ' s head. Finally, during the sev- enth-inning stretch, it drifted over. There ' s a family feeling in the bleachers and birthday parties among the regulars aren ' t uncommon. On the other hand, there is trouble once in awhile. Once when a fight broke out in the right-centerfield section (always a problem spot), one gent apparently got the wind knocked out of him. As soon as it happened, a young man, seeing the gent was having dif- ficulty breathing, started to administer what appeared to be an emergency tracheotomy. It turned out that the young man was a high school truant coming to the support of a friend. He ended up in court and the older man ended up in the hospital. Nevertheless the bleachers in 1975 were a great place to watch the Sox win a pennant. As Keane said, " The bleacher fans are smart fans. But I ' ve never really met one that I was proud of. " — Timothy Dwyer Bruins luck out The year of the trade When the Boston Bruins traded Phil Esposito and Carol Vadnais to the New York Rangers for Jean Ratelle, Brad Park and Joe Zanussi last November, hockey " experts " around the city declared the New York Rangers the chief benefactors. That was in November. By February, the Bruins were sit- ting comfortably atop their division, while the Rangers were sitting equally as com- fortably in the cellar in their division. The ensuing results of The Trade gave Harry Sin- den a reputation as a genius. It got Emile Francis of the Rang- ers fired. Before The Trade on November 7, both teams were floundering. The Bruins occu- pied themselves by losing — at one point, things got so bad that coach Don Cherry had to apologize for his team ' s inept- ness — and it was obvious that the Bruins needed something to spark them. To backtrack a bit, the Bruins made an embarassing departure from the 1975 Stan- ley Cup Playoffs when the Chicago Black Hawks — a team that couldn ' t even beat out the Vancouver Canucks during the regular season — pulled an upset. Up to that point, the Bruins still labored under the impression that all they needed was Esposito to score with some help from Number Four to beat anyone they played. The elimination in the quali- fying round was a rude awak- ening, but in some ways it Bruins ' star John Bucyk (9) makes a good attempt to score but is foiled at the net by Pittsburgh Penguins ' goalie Michel Plasse (31) . Bucyk is the second all-time point getter in the NHL. might have been a blessing. General Manager Sinden finally got it through his head that the Big Bad Bruins of the early 70s were a memory. The players all vowed that this year would be different — a new defensive, backchecking style would be employed. Promises, Promises. October rolled around and it was the same thing all over again, only Bobby Orr wasn ' t around to hold the fort. Somewhere in the middle of negotiating his contract in the Toronto news- papers and threatening to jump to the World Hockey League, Orr discovered his fabled knee was bothering him again — and he had to go under the knife. The B ' s wandered aimlessly around the league through October. Perhaps the telling blow came on November 1, when the Philadelphia Flyers destroyed them 8-1. The fol- lowing Tuesday, they went to Buffalo and the Sabres shut them out. That ' s when an I embarrassed Cherry apolo- gized to sportswriters. A few days later, somebody had to wake up Phil Esposito in Vancouver and tell him the bad news. It was Cherry. After that, things brightened considerably at the Garden. Orr returned to the lineup, and the Bruins proceeded to pile up victories. And when Orr ' s knee decided it needed ANOTHER operation at the end of the month, the Bruins had the best insurance policy they could have had — Park. At the time of this article, Orr still hadn ' t returned to the lineup, and at the risk of sounding like a heretic, the Bruins really hadn ' t missed him. Somewhere along the line, the Bruins discovered the work ethic, and farmer bench- warmers like Gary Doak and Darryl Edestrand plus people like Gregg Sheppard and Don Marcotte performed steadily for the team. There was only one mini- low point after the trade, and Kansas City Scouts ' goalie Denis Herron falls on top of his defenseman Jean Guy LaGace, as Bruins ' Terry O ' Reilly (24) and Phil Esposito (7) dig for the puck. The Scouts defeated the Bruins 3-2. that came just before Christ- mas, when the Bruins lost two in a row at home — but that was offset when they went on the road and beat Buffalo and Philadelphia. Of course, Boston isn ' t Bos- ton without some kind of soap opera. Two years ago it was Bep Guidolin. Last year it was Gilles Gilbert. This year, it was Ken Hodge. Hodge is the last holdover from the last Trade — which brought Esposito and Fred Stanfield to Boston. The big winger was on the two Stanley Cup teams, and had two 50-goal seasons. But last year, Hodge slumped and all was not forgiven. Cherry benched him in December, saying Hodge wasn ' t hustling, and for the first time in years, Hodge drew cheers instead of jeers when he appeared on the ice. And when Hodge returned to the lineup and started scoring like he was before, neither Cherry nor Sinden seemed too happy about it. Trades were rumored. And the Bruins took over the league lead in prodigal sons. Three years ago, Derek San- derson came crawling back after the WHA didn ' t keep its part of the bargain. This year, Gerry Cheevers and the Cleve- land Crusaders had a disagree- ment — something to the effect that Cheevers wasn ' t getting paid — and they parted company. The Crusaders claimed that Cheevers wasn ' t putting forth $200,000 worth of effort, while Cheevers claimed he wasn ' t getting paid in the first place. Stories circulated that Cheevers became the team Shylock after the pay- checks stopped coming, and finally the former Boston goa- lie got out of his contract and came home to Harry — for a pay cut. All this meant was that goa- lie Dave Reece would wind up in the scrap heap to make room for Cheesie. And finally, for those who thought the Dave Forbes- Henry Boucha case was over, Boucha had one final surprise up his sleeve. Toward the end of January, Boucha announced he was suing Forbes, the Bruins and the NHL for alleged damages incurred when Forbes allegedly mistook Boucha ' s face for a hockey puck. — Steve Krause The longest season The expectations for the New England Patriots in 1975 were limitless. Granted, they had folded in the latter half of 1974, but young, adjusting, learning teams do that. They were considered genuine con- tenders. They were to be in the thick of things in the Eastern Division of the American Foot- ball Conference. But fate had other ideas. Not the good kind of fate, the bad kind. The season started with the threat of a strike in early Sep- tember over the collective bar- gaining agreement with the owners and ended on Dec. 21 with a 34-21 loss to the Eastern Division Champion Baltimore Colts. The Pats closed-out with a 3-11 record and the Colts with a 10-4 mark. In 1974 the Colts were 2-12, but had turned it around in ' 75, the Patriots were unable to. The first time the Patriots met the Colts in the 1975 regu- lar season they won, 21-10. Following that game the Colts put together a nine-game win- ning streak. The result — a championship. The Pats on the other hand went down hill, losing all but one (24-16 over San Francisco) of their remaining games. The problems began when quarterback Jim Plunkett, the young and able former Heis- man Trophy winner, injured his shoulder in a preseason game with San Diego. Plunkett didn ' t return until the third game, but by then the demise had begun. The New York Jets won that game, 36-7. Neil Graff, who had thrown one pass in 1974 and Steve Grogan, a rookie selected in the fifth round of the college draft, were the quarterbacks. These two, along with an inef- fective running attack and equally ineffective defense were the Patriots ' nucleus. A variety of happenings helped to destroy a once capa- ble defense. Defensive back- field starters, Jack Mildren and Sandy Durko, decided to get out of football leaving Ron Bolten, a consistent but not outstanding defender, as the only seasoned vet left. The linemen were just as bad off. Julius Adams, a pro- spective all-pro defensive end and defensive tackle Art Moore spent much time in the whirlpool. Defensive end Mel Lunsford, a two-year pro, defected in preseason, never to be seen again. On Nov. 19, Head Coach Chuck Fairbanks waived 5 foot 5 " Mini " Mack Herron. Along with Herron went the spirit of the 1974 season. Gone was the 1974 record breaking form (Herron broke Gale Say- ers combined yardage mark), so Herron went to Atlanta for the $100 waiver price. It was a bad year and con- tinued so, as Plunkett was hit with another shoulder injury in the 24-16 San Francisco win and a banged up right knee in the high scoring 34-31 loss to Dallas. When he returned to the lineup in the Dallas game, his third comeback of the year, Plunkett threw three TDs and scored two. It wasn ' t a bad showing against the Super Bowl losers. His successor, the 23-year- old Grogan, performed admi- rably in his place. In the final seven games, he threw four times for over 250 yards and Sam " Bam " Cunningham straddles the Schaefer Stadium sideline while picking up a three yard gain against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins won the game, 22-14. once, in the second Bills ' loss (45-31), for over 365 yards tying a Patriot mark. It was good for the 1975 sea- son to end with Baltimore. The young and delirious Patriots wanted to knock off this look- a-like and prevent them from grasping the Eastern crown. It was not to happen, although the effort was truly valiant. New England lost the game, 31-24. If the Patriots had won, it would have made the season. The post season rhetoric would have been optimistic. Instead, fate had intervened and yanked them from the winner ' s circle. The 1975 sea- son remained a debacle. — Dennis Naughton As 4ksE„ -irftHJMft ' -.H £■ Jim Plunkett The Green machine rolls The pattern had been set through a history and tradition of team basketball. It was the Boston Celtics practice to play team basketball and that was it. In National Basketball Asso- ciation season 1975-76, three of the four division leaders uti- lized the team concept rather than relying on the superstar. Basketball needs team players through design, however, find- ing one player to act as three is easier, but not always as fruit- ful. The Atlantic Division of the NBA was the one with the most talent. It would follow that it would also be the most competitive. Throughout the months of November and December the race between the Philadelphia 76ers, Buffalo Braves and the Celtics was tight. So tight, the lead never rose above two games. The first half held matchups between the three, but none of the three could pull away from the other two. The Celtics got their first look at ABA veteran and NBA rookie, George McGinnis when they lost toil Philly, 119-109, early in Nov. On Nov. 15, after losing three straight, Boston pulled out a 112-110 victory in Buf- falo. John Havlicek and Jo Jo White had 28 points each. The volleying continued, as the three traded the division lead during the first 15 games. The Green weathered a Dave Cowens back problem, which detracked the 6 foot 9 center for just one game. Cow ens, very much a non-confor- mist on and off the court, had required to be put in traction to correct the problem. When Cowens returned he was better than new and the Celtics ' performance im- proved. On Dec. 15 the Celtics took over first place when they downed New Orleans, 102-93. The lead was .014 over the 76ers, who had lost to Seattle, making the transition easy. The Celtics were in the midst of an eight-game win- ning streak when they took over the lead. The spurt ended in Buffalo, but it had done the job, it had put Boston in front to stay. Cowens, White and Charlie Scott took turns leading the team to victories in the next flurry of wins that came in January and February. The lead went from a hovering two games to a solid six games by early Feb. Victories over both Buffalo and Philadelphia established the Celtics as the stronger club. The formula was five play- ers: White, Cowens, Scott, " old-timer " Havlicek and Paul Silas, averaging in double fig- ures. White, with a 19-plus ave. was the only Celtic in the top twenty. Cowens and Scott were averaging in the 18-plus range. In 1975 Golden State under Al Attols, had stolen the for- mula and vaulted right to the NBA title. Rick Barry and his " no name crew " swept Wash- ington in stunning fashion for the title with the team play concept. The showdowns between the Celtics and the Warriors in 1975-76 were the best basket- ball had had for a long time. The Celtics won the first meeting (Celtics ' second game of year) 115-106, but the next two were split. On Dec. 30, Golden State won 133-101. On February 29, in the Garden, the Celtics won, 119-101 for national television. When the playoffs rolled around, the games between the two would have no real signifi- cance. The first game was too early in the season, and the two runaways were played on home courts during the visi- tors ' road trip. The games didn ' t mean anything in the respective division races, they were just games between the best teams. Reserves Kevin Stacom, Glen McDonald and ex-Celtic, ex-Brave and now Celtic again, Steve Kuberski pro- vided good bench strength. Don Nelson, who indicated he might retire when the season ended, also came up with clutch efforts. When Halicek underwent knee surgery, putting him out of the lineup the middle two weeks in March, the bench- men filled in suberbly, protect- ing the division lead over Phil- adelphia. An unpromising loss to the Washington Bullets on March 14 in the Boston Garden proved the worth of the vet- eran. Another winning streak might do the trick, but minus John Havlicek it ' s not the easi- est thing to summon. Will the Celtics get into the championship finals of the NBA? Maybe when they let Henry Fin kel go on Nov. 19, they let a chunk of the Celtic tradition depart also. Will they compensate for the loss of " John, John " down the stretch? You know if they did. Tradi- tion has it they would and Celtic pride is a strong motiva- tor. — Dennis Naughton 20th Century Gladiators In reality, it is closer to a spectacle than a sport. It is a reminder of ancient times, when Christians were used as lion food to please the Roman hoardes. It is the good, the bad and the ugly all rolled into one. To believe professional wrestling, one has to see it as it is performed at the Boston Garden. This show turns little old ladies into raving maniacs. Normally sane people become bloodthirsty animals. Cries of " Kill ' em! " and " Twist his arm off! " come from the throats of otherwise proper people. Not unless at least one of the wrestlers is — or seems to be — in extreme pain and near death is the wrestling crowd satisfied. The fans like their action hard and they like it fast. If the action doesn ' t please them, they let the wrestlers know. They come to the matches equipped with an arsenal of verbal abuse that they are not ashamed., to unleash at any given moment. As the action in the ring becomes more violent, the crowd frenzy reaches its zenith. People leap to their feet screaming curses or praises at the combatants. At times, when the crowd loses control, objects have been known to fly through the air and into the ring. In the early months of 1976, the Boston Police were refus- ing to work overtime in protest over departmental policies. This included overtime at Gar- den events, which prompted a Garden official to tell an inter- viewer that while the previous evening ' s Bruins crowd had been quiet enough without police protection, he was con- cerned about the following night ' s wrestling matches. " The wrestling fans can get out of hand sometimes. " he said. The wrestlers are not above involving themselves in verbal combat with the fans while engaging in physical combat with each other, and often a wrestler weighing close to 300 pounds argues with some- body ' s grandmother. It ' s an even battle most of the time. Many people have legiti- mate doubts about the validity of the " sport " saying that the whole thing is an elaborate act, with the outcome and roles predetermined. Wrestling fans, however, are convinced they ' re witnessing the real thing. The winner of a match can be determined before the match even begins, once the observer knows a few simple points to look for. In many cases, the winner will be the guy dressed in white, as most clashes pit a good guy against a bad. Or you can tell who the good guy is by the crowd ' s reaction when he is introduced. And if that doesn ' t help, just look for the wrestler that any mother would be proud to call her son. This method is almost fool-proof. Of course, to keep things fair, the bad guy will some- times win the match. He will be even easier to recognize. He will be the biggest, meanest and loudest man in the ring. The crowd always roots for the good guy, while the bad guy stomps around the ring snarling and proclaiming him- self to be the best thing since sliced bread. Professional wrestlers are a separate breed of " athlete. " They seem to pride themselves on their bulk, their snarl and their mean manner. They are a boastful breed, proud of them- selves and willing to tell any- one who ' ll listen. Before a match, the wres- tlers are introduced and the crowd decides on its favorite. The roles have been estab- lished and the show begins. Wrestling champion Bruno Sammartino grapples with " Handsome " Jimmy Val- iant at the Boston Garden. Early in a typical match, the bad guy beats the living hell out of the favorite. This is done for effect, to bring the crowd to its feet. Between a series of drop kicks, shots to the chops, kicks in the head and other goodies, our friend is wobbling around the ring, apparently not sure of where he is or why he is there. Suddenly, he makes a mirac- ulous recovery from the pun- ishment he has absorbed and starts beating the hell out of the bad guy. The crowd mean- while, is going berserk. They love every minute of it. Wrongs have been righted, justice has triumphed and all is right with the world. The final act occurs when the favorite grabs the bad guy by the head, throws him to the mat and holds him there for a three second count while the crowd is bringing down the roof, for nothing makes a Gar- den wrestling crowd happier than seeing the guy in the black trunks get his just reward. The show is professional wrestling. The theater is the Boston Garden. The play is funny, the audience is loud and the performers defy description. The Romans would have loved it. — Dom Friscino The Garden Fans. . . . . . love the caged match inds winter gold Every fourth winter, the Olym- pics bring into the limelight sports and names that are other- wise foreign to the American sporting car — the luge, Nordic and cross-country skiing, the bobsled. The Americans are basically a Summer Olympics group of ath- letes. Track, basketball, swim- ming — these are the areas where the U.S. ' finest have excelled through the years. The 1976 Olympics opened in Innsbruck, Austria, a skiing vil- lage whose only claim to fame is its gleaming, winding bobsled- luge run, and the fact that the small village set off in the Aust- rian mountains also hosted the 1964 Olympiad. Americans traditionally do poorly in most of the winter games, but 1976 brought a few surprises. Not the least surprising devel- opment was that in 1976, Ameri- ca ' s 200th birthday, neither Olympic session would take place in the United States. Denver was to have been the winter site, but the voters of Col- orado, not thrilled with the organizing committee ' s erratic planning, gave the Olympics the ax. Several cities, including Los Angeles, put in bids for the Sum- mer Olympics, but the governing body opted instead for Montreal — where preparations through- out early 1976 were plagued with labor and construction problems. So the American teams headed for Austria, armed to the teeth with products from coffee to marking pens, all of whom now adorn their advertisements with " Selected for Use by the U. S. Olympic Team. " It takes more than marking pens to win in the Olympics, however. Throughout the history of the Olympics, the winter games belong to those countries where cross-country and down- hill skiing and the luge (a small wooden sled that travels 90 m.p.h. carrying an unprotected rider of questionable sanity) are a way of life. Norway, and the other Scandi- navian nations, France, Italy and more recently Russia and East Germany are the strongmen here. But the Americans have won in the past in several areas, espe- cially figure skating. There were then, some sur- prises as well as a few unsurpris- ing finishes among the underdog Americans. Dorothy Hamill, following in the steps of Peggy Fleming (1968) and Janet Lynn (1972) edged rival Dianne deLeeuw of the Nether- lands in the women ' s figure skat- ing event. Bill Koch Hamill was second after the compulsory figures and gave a beautiful, graceful performance in the free style to win the gold medal. deLeeuw, an American girl who opted to skate for her father ' s homeland, was close behind her, but Hamill ' s innova- tive, inspired performance brought her high marks and the gold medal. Hamill, unlike her two American predecessors — Fleming and Lynn — has so far turned down lucrative offers to turn professional with several ice shows. Equally masterful, although in a less graceful event, was Sheila Young, the exuberant, bare-foot skater (that ' s bare feet inside her skates), who took three medals, one of each metal, in as many speed skating events. Young, also a world champion cyclist, took a gold in the 500 meters, clocking a blazing 42.76 Olympic record on slow ice. She finished with a bronze the next day in the 1000 meters, with teammate Leah Poulos winning the silver. On the third day of skating, Young pulled an upset in taking the silver medal for second place in the 1,500 meters, an event that had been her worst until the Olympics. Besides the medals, however, Young also won the hearts of people from many nations with her enthusiastic, girlish joy at winning the gold, in an age where the Olympics are more an exer- cise in pomp and circumstance than sport. Another American Peter Muel- ler of Wisconsin won a gold medal in 1000 meters speed skat- ing event. Perhaps the most unexpected U.S. medal came in the Nordic (cross-country) skiing, where Bill Koch of Vermont took second and the silver in an event which had seen its best American finish (15th) 44 years ago. Koch literally skiied out of oblivion, and after leading for part of the race, finished second to Russian Sergei Saleliev. The race (30 kilometers, or almost 18 miles) took place at the same time as the more prestigious speed skating and men ' s downhill races, so that Koch ' s startling finish was viewed by no American televi- sion or press crews. Koch finished sixth — another American best — the following day in the 15-kilometer race, this time with press coverage. Among the other American medal winners was Cindy Nel- son, whose bronze in the women ' s downhill skiing was a surprise, even to herself. In addition, a scrappy U.S. hockey team, after losing as expected to the powerful Rus- sians and Czechs (who finished with the gold and bronze, respec- tively), came back to upset Fin- Dorothy Hamill land and appeared to have a good shot at the bronze before losing on the last day of competition to West Germany. Things went downhill from there for the hockey team as several members were arrested following a bar- room brawl of suspicious origin several days after the final game. In all, the Americans did better than expected. But the strong showing of the Russians, and who won in overall medals, and the even more surprising strength of second-place East Germany do not auger well for future Ameri- can winter teams. — Art MacPherson Richard Lamby of Auburn, Me., right, flies through the air after scoring winning goal in the United States ' 5-4 victory over favored Finland in 76 Winter Olym- pics.

In 1971 President Richard Nixon was running for re-elec- tion, and was expected to win handily. Now, he is a private citizen once again, out of office and his name forever blotted by the mire of Water- gate. It is the Bicentennial — a festival that began two years ago and continues today, get- ting louder and brassier as time goes on. America cele- brates her birthday in a big way, but the results may make the country ' s founders cringe. Women have, to quote the commercial, come a long way in the past five years, and, if many feminists are to be believed, still have much longer to go. Vietnam has ended for Americans and a man who was unknown outside of Grand Rapids is now presi- dent. Although these changes have taken place mostly out- side Northeastern ' s gray walls, they affect us all, and will con- tinue to do so in years to come. The Bicentennial The Biggest President Gerald Ford termed the Bicentennial " a once in a life- time opportunity to celebrate our heritage. " And by the looks of it, every- one is taking advantage of it. Celebrations of all sorts and sizes have taken place throughout the country — in Boston and Phil- adelphia, where it all began, and in parts of the nation that were wilderness or Spanish and French provinces when the thir- teen colonies broke with Mother England 200 years ago. And those great American tra- ditions, big business and free enterprise, have done their part as well, whether for financial or patriotic reasons. Re-enactments of historical events abounded in the early years of the Bicentennial celebra- tion, commemorating battles, speeches and civil disturbances (the Tea Party, for example). Early in the fall of 1974, the people of Milton celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Suffolk Resolves. That document, written and approved by delegates from Boston area towns who met in Milton in defiance of the British troops quartered in Boston, decried the colonies ' , especially New England ' s, alleged mistreat- ment at the hands of King George. The original Resolves were car- ried to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, and signaled the beginning of the uprising that would break out into arms several months later in Concord. The rider who carried the Resolves, Paul Revere, became more famous for his April, 1775 ride. In 1974, a Milton factory worker set off as the first of a dozen riders who would carry the replica of the Resolves to Phila- delphia over a week later to com- plete the re-enactment. Revere made the ride on his own. And because of the Resolves, Milton people proudly display on their car bumpers the legend, " MILTON — WHERE IT ALL BEGAN. " Other re-enactments followed and continue today. The Tea Party, Bunker Hill and, of course, Concord and Lexington all had their day. In April, 1975, President Ford made his first trip to Boston as chief executive, to start the offi- cial Bicentennial celebration in Old North Church, where Robert Newman had hung the famous lanterns to signal the opening of actual armed conflict. The British march and the ensuing battles at Lexington Green and Concord ' s bridge fol- lowed the next day, and of course, Ford spoke again. Many Americans seemed dis- appointed that the government had not planned a single spectac- ular event on which the nation could focus for the Bicentennial, much like the exposition in Phila- delphia in 1876 which featured Alexander Graham Bell ' s tele- phone, Charles Hire ' s root beer, the Singer Sewing Machine and Pullman railroad cars. There is, however, the Freedom Train, which began its year-and- a-half voyage around the country in Boston in April, 1975. It carries such memorabilia as the final draft of the Declaration of Inde- pendence, an early copy of the Gettysburg Address and the Apollo 12 capsule and lunar rocks in its 25 cars of originals or replicas of life that shaped Amer- ica during the past 200 years. Local Bicentennial projects were also in the offing. In Columbia, Mo., the fire hydrants were painted red, white, and blue. In Denver, the city had a Bicen- tennia l bond issue to build new sewers. A two-month paddle trip in a wooden Polynesian canoe by a 24-man crew was planned. Over 50 Conestoga and prairie schooner wagons, driven by col- lege seniors and pulled by Mor- gan horses through the Old Span- ish Trail, the Rockies and the Cumberland Gap, were sched- uled to arrive in Valley Forge in July, 1976. In fact, a sense of overkill has been with us since the Bicenten- nial hoopla began several years ago. Business, always alert to the chance to gain some publicity while making some money, got into the act, " If you ' re looking for money, " one trade magazine told its read- ers, " the Bicentennial can be the biggest bonanza of your life. " Red, white and blue balloons, glassware, T-shirts, beer mugs, posters, etc., flooded the market. " You know damn well, " said a journalist, " we ' re going to be inundated for two years with an attempt to sell a plastic image of America to sell cars and corn- flakes. To me that ' s treason. " The People ' s Bicentennial Committee and similar groups sprang up as a reaction to the glossy Bicentennial picture pre- The story behind the story Although Boston was called the " Cradle of the American Revolution " and Philadelphia, the " Birthplace of Independence, " the planners trooped to Washington to set the stage for America ' s Bicentennial celebration. By July 4, 1976 over 600 official Bicentennial events will have been planned and staged by state and local commissions all over the coun- try — far outstripping the federal government ' s contribution to the nation ' s birthday. Although the first state groups sought federal aid back in 1962, it was not until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson established the 50- member American Revolution Bicentennial Commission (ARBC) to plan the celebration. What followed was governmental red tape, politick- ing and little else. Suggestions on which city should lead the nation ' s celebration resulted in rivalries and bickering among the major cities and led the ARBC to urge the cities to participate on their own " in some cultural way " toward the Bicenten- nial. To lend direction to the planning, the ARBC announced three themes by which Americans could celebrate their country ' s birthday: " Heritage 76 " would be a look back in time to the creation of the nation; " Horizons ' 76, " a request to all communities to sponsor local improvement projects and " Open House, USA, " whereby the people of America " would cele- brate the richness of their diversity, the vitality of their culture, and the traditions of their people. " The ARBC also announced plans for a gala celebration in the nation ' s capital July 2-4, 1976 with the gover- nors of the 50 states, political leaders, legislators and jurists of foreign nations receiving invitations. In May 1972, the ARBC voted down a proposal to centralize the Bicentennial in Philadelphia, offi- cially ending the possibility of a national focal point. Instead, a Bicentennial Parks plan was pro- posed. It was described as " an indoor-outdoor cultural and educa- tional complex " set up in every state on land to be provided by the federal government. Each park would serve as a focal point for the nationwide celebration in 1976. It was around this time that the commission, came under fire from Congress and the press. In December, 1972 a House Judi- ciary Committee report stated that the ARBC had not and could not pro- vide the nation with a meaningful Bicentennial commemoration. The report said the ARBC had failed to consistently generate tangible pro- grams ... a " lack of concrete, on- going programs either initiated, stim- ulated, or coordinated by the ARBC. It is little wonder, really, that an institution hopelessly uncertain of what it is to do, ends up doing very little. " The committee recommended res- tructuring the commission to 25 pri- vate citizens chosen by the President. So, the ARBC was transformed, but it was too late. In 1973 Congress did away with the commission and replaced it with their own American Revolution Bicentennial Administra- tion (ARBA). Headed by Nixon appointee, John W. Warner, the new agency in 1974 put together a broad program for commemorative stamps, coins and medals, designated over 250 cities as " Bicentennial communi- ties " and established a computerized compilation of all celebration events. So the ARBC had finally pulled itself together to provide the leader- ship sought by the states more than ten years before. And just in time — It was now 1976. — Michael Coogan sented to the American people. Nevertheless, millions of Americans and foreigners (esti- mates go as high as 876 million) visited the east coast during 1975- 76. Major historical centers set up tourist attractions designed to bring in people from near and far. Boston has been a leader here, as it was in the Revolution. Most prominent among local Bicenten- nial exhibits are the three period exhibits opened in the past year. " The Revolution, " at the Quincy Market Building near City Hall, gives visitors the chance to face the problems of their 18th century counterparts, labeling them as Tories or Patri- ots based on their responses to the Boston situation 200 years ago. " Victorian Boston, " on Arling- ton street, is a collection of memorabilia and lore from the 19th century — from its inven- tions to its politics. And for the more modern- minded, " Where ' s Boston " opened at the Prudential Center. The multi-image, quadraphonic sound show visits the neighbor- hoods of today ' s city, from Rox- bury to Southie. There ' s " The Whites of Their Eyes " at Bunker Hill, the Tea Party Ship, the Freedom Trail, and of course, " Old Ironsides, " the U.S.S. Constitution. Perhaps the grandest project of all (but it never got off the ground) was the proposed linkup of about five million people, hand in hand, stretching from coast to coast. Marvin Rosenbloom of Chicago suggested it as a joke, but the idea mushroomed to the point that Rosenbloom almost quit his job to work full-time on the pro- ject. Copywriting it as " Hands Across the Nation, " Rosenbloom said, " The project (if successful) would go down in history as a Mount Rushmore of American emotion, a Great Wall of Ameri- can people akin to the Great Wall of China, a National Woodstock of sorts, and by its sheer monu- mentality might well usher in an era of brotherhood and unity such as the United States has never experienced before. " That, more than all the beer mugs and cornflakes in the land, is the Bicentennial. — Michael Coogan — Art MacPherson The Nixon years ' Peace with honor ' Conceding he no longer had the political support necessary to continue leadership, Presi- dent Richard M. Nixon resigned at noon Aug. 9, 1974. " I have never been a quitter. To leave office before my term is completed is abhorrent to every instinct in my body, " Nixon told a national televi- sion audience the night before his resignation. " I would have preferred to carry through to the finish, whatever the per- sonal agony it would have involved . . ., " he said in his 37th television address to the country since he took office in 1969. In a quiet, controlled voice, Nixon told Americans he felt he could no longer carry out the duties he had been elected to fulfill. He said he was resigning so America could have the " full-time " President it so desperately needed. Nixon said the Constitu- tional process " has now been served and there is no need for it to be prolonged, I would have preferred to have the Congress carry it through to the finish; indeed my family urged it, but the interest of the nation must come before any personal considerations. " During the speech, Nixon did not confess to any criminal acts, only " errors in judge- ment. " He insisted the judge- ments, right or wrong, were made in " what I believed at the time to be in the best inter- ests of the nation. " His address stressed the Nixon years were ones of achievement, citing the end of the Vietnam War and the establishment of diplomatic relations with Communist China as two examples. Amer- ica ' s future goals, he said, should be peace, prosperity, and an abundant life for all Americans. Nixon likened himself to a gladiator in an arena " whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again because there is not effort without error and shortcoming, but who does actually strive to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumphs of high achievements and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. " Nixon closed the 16-minute speech saying, " There is one cause to which I will always be devoted . . . and that is to summon all my energy for the cause of peace. " The last day of the Nixon White House consisted of a tearful goodbye to a loyal staff, with Nixon personally thank- ing them and reflecting on his childhood and his mother. While Gerald R. Ford was being inaugurated as the new President, Nixon was flying over the breadbasket of Amer- ica en route to San Clemente. There he sought seclusion, ref- using interviews and scorning public appearances. S i ■ •■■■•I In September, President Ford issued a " full, free and absolute pardon " for any crimes Nixon committed while President. Ford said his action was designed to heal a divided and bewildered country, and said he personally believed Nixon had suffered enough. The pardon brought charges that Nixon made a deal before resigning office, charges vehe- mently denied by the new President. — James Ross John Dean: Sentenced to a minimum of one and a maxi- Richard Nixon: Received a full pardon from President mum of four years in prison.

The new man On August 9, 1974, the man next door became President of the United States. Handpicked by Richard Nixon, Gerald R. Ford took office in the wake of the great- est scandal ever to hit the nation ' s capital. However, few Americans recognized " just plain Jerry, " although he had served more than a quarter century in the House of Representatives. And even fewer realized the former Michigan State all-star center was an adept politician. " Ford played too much foot- ball without a helmet, so now he can ' t walk and chew gum at the same time, " President Lyn- don B. Johnson jested. However, although Johnson ' s party controlled Congress, a stalwart conserva- tive, thwarted the Great Soci- ety programs. " Ford may be a plodder, but he is, nevertheless, an effec- tive, competent minority leader, " noted the Almanac of American Politics in 1967. A World War II Navy vet- eran, Ford returned to Grand Rapids in 1945. Returning veterans created a political upheaval throughout the nation. Among the political newcomers elected to Con- gress in 1946 were John F. Ken- nedy of Massachusetts and Richard M. Nixon of Califor- nia. The veterans made their presence felt in the cities, where they joined reformers ' ranks in an attempt to oust the " big-city machines. " After the reformists drove Grand Rapids political boss Frank D. McKay out of city hall, their target became arch- conservative Congressman Bartel Jonkman. Ford gained the support of Senator Arthur Vandenberg, the United Auto Workers Union and the reform group in the 1948 campaign. Jonkman, however, had two advantages: he was the incum- bent and Dutch in the largest Dutch-American district in the nation. After months of knocking on doors, Ford won the election with 62.2 percent of the vote. In his first term, Ford stuck to his seat, and set his goal on the Speaker ' s chair. In 1951, he landed a post on the important House Finance Committee. He earned a reputation for sifting through complicated budgets and became the rank- ing Republican on the Defense sub-committee in 1957. Although he never authored a major piece of legislation, he finished second in a 1960 New- sweek poll rating the most able men in Congress. His hopes for the Speaker ' s chair were dashed in 1968 and 1972 when House Republicans failed to make substantial gains, despite a victory in the Presidential race. Ford said he intended to retire in 1976. He was honest — an eagle scout. And despite the thou- sands of dollars in campaign contributions he handled for Republican Congressional Candidates, an investigation by 430 FBI agents showed he was clean. The only possible blot on his record was his involvement with influence peddler Robert N. Winter-Berger, who used Ford ' s name to get favors for his contributors and other friends. Ford broke off with Winter-Berger in 1969. Winter-Berger published a book about Ford, but admits, " Jerry Ford never personally received a cent from me. " Ford was also loyal to a fault. He mouthed the Nixon line from the day Nixon took office until the day he left. When Nixon ' s Supreme Court nominees Clement Haynes- worth and Harold Carswell were rejected by the Senate, Ford tried to have liberal Jus- tice William O. Douglas impeached. Many considered Douglas one of the great jurists of American history, and the impeachment move made Ford a laughing stock. When Nixon nominated Ford for the vice presidency, only three senators and 35 Congressmen voted against him. He was generally liked, but nobody saw him as Presi- dential timber. His strength, his fellow politicians said, was as a head counter, not a leader. Some political experts said Nixon appointed Ford vice said Herbert Block, a Wash- ington Post reporter. Before his inauguration, Ford said the people would never stand for such a pardon. But Nixon would not have resigned unless he was promised a par- don, many theorized. The remainder of Ford ' s first year in office is a copy of his 25 years in Congress — conservatism. He turned down social programs and other lib- eral measures, including agri- culture, anti-strip mining, pub- lic health, education, housing, and air pollution bills. His first year saw the col- president because no one would ever want him as the top man. But the country ' s honey- moon with the likeable Ford ended Sept. 8, 1974, when the President granted Nixon a " full, free and absolute par- don. " " The cover-up went on, " lapse of pro-American forces in Indo-China, the capture and recapture of the Mayaguez, overtures to Castro, and an interim agreement between Egypt and Israel. — Michael McGonnigal The Economy Inflation, recession Depression In late 1975, New York City faced bankruptcy. There was simply not enough tax revenue to pay the bills — city payroll, welfare or interest on long term bonds. And the holders of the bonds were threatening to foreclose. Finally, after months of hemming and hawing, exten- sions from credit holders, the Federal Government bailed the city out of financial hot water. In January, Boston creditors devalued the city ' s bond rat- ing. The bond rating deter- mines the interest rate a city or town must pay to borrow money. And later in the month, Gov- ernor Michael " meat cleaver " Dukakis announced the state might forfeit on some housing bonds if the legislature did not act. Double digit inflation and unemployment and increasing cost of living have character- ized the 1970 ' s. Some experts predict that the economic growth of the 1960 ' s will never be repeated. More and more people will be jobless during 1976. And at the heart of the trou- ble, lies New England. The unemployment rate soars at an unsettling 11.7 percent, some four percent greater than the National averages. " New England has fallen a lot and we have a longer road back than the rest of the U.S. We have to work on a longer term economic recovery prob- lem, " Paul Samuelson, a Nobel prize winning economist, said recently. Samuelson said New Eng- land will have to plan and things will get much worse before they get better. However, New England and particularly the Boston area could be a treasure chest for industry. " New England does a better job of spawning the entrepre- neur spirit for new electronics and computer, " Dr. James M. Howell, senior vice-president of the First National Bank of Boston said. He added with some plan- ning and wooing, the New England economy could get out of its economic rut. Howell explained despite high energy cost, the recrea- tional, environmental and cul- tural assets are a major factor in drawing investments from Western Europe. New England has a highly skilled labor market and tech- nical market. A host of well equipped and staffed consult- ing firms also make it attrac- tive to highly technical indus- tries. And many firms, previously headquartered in New York, are considering New Hamp- shire and Massachusetts as a refuge from beleaguered New York. The optimistic outlook of the New England and Boston economy came on the heels of announcements by the federal government that American business is expanding rapidly enough for hundreds of Amer- icans to be called back to jobs they lost during the 1974 reces- sion. In January, total nationwide employment rose 800,000 while the jobless rolls shrank by more than 400,000. Econo- mists said the difference between the two figures repre- sents new jobs. " The January figures are a very encouraging sign, " Com- merce Secretary Elliot L. Rich- ardson said, on CBS-TV " Face the Nation " program in Janu- ary. But Richardson would not define how encouraging the figures were. Nearly 20 percent of Ameri- can teenagers cannot find work. And for black teenagers, the figure is more than 30 per- cent. Last month, teenage unemployment rose slightly. Richardson said the unem- ployment rate will " jiggle up and down " around 7.8 percent for the next few months. He said the economy should grow at a rate of roughly six percent, but inflation will remain in the six to seven per- cent category. Unemployment, he said, should dip below the eight percent mark for the first time since mid-1974. Experts differ on their anal- ysis of why the economy is fal- tering. However, most agree the root of today ' s problem can be traced to the 1972 Presidential election and the oil shortage which occurred shortly there- after. Some economists contend the economy was doing poorly in 1971, shortly before the elec- tion and to add a boost to his campaign Nixon employed several short term economic stimulants. The stimulants, economists charge, caused the economy to expand too quickly. Things became over extended and a recession followed. The recession was height- ened by the oil shortage and hike in the cost of fuel oil. And some economists main- tain government policy shortly after the oil shortage increased problems. Whatever, the economic sit- uation, it is certain to play a major role in the Presidential elections this November. If the economy makes a dra- matic upswing, Ford, observ- ers say, can take the credit and greatly increase his possibility of winning. However, if the economy does not show an increase, Ford will be treading on politi- cal quicksand. Ronald Reagan, a political challenger to Ford, summed up the theme of the 1976 elections. " Too many people have been jobless for too long and what is being done about it. " — Deborah Ott — James Ross The CIA A grand sham Charging a House and Sen- ate investigation into the CIA and FBI have been a sham, Rep. Michael J. Harrington (D- Beverly) is waging a one man war to leash the U.S. intelli- gence network. " In the most basic terms, the debate over the proper role of our intelligencies is a debate about whether the U.S. can and should stand for a higher standard of political conduct in domestic and international affairs of other societies, " Har- rington said. Harrington has been a fiery opponent of the CIA ' s clandes- tine operations since he first gained a seat in the House, about six years ago. The Beverly Democrat has been ejected from a house committee studying the agency and nearly censured from Congress. Harrington allegedly leaked classified CIA information to the Washington Post last June. The complaint was dismissed in November 1975. Harrington, however, never denied giving the newspaper the information. He instead challenged the house rules governing what can be made public. " I wanted to get my col- leagues to realize what this whole issue posed for me means to the Congress as a whole, " Harrington said dur- ing the battle to thwart the censurship move. Now, nearly four years after his battle to rein the CIA began, Harrington feels little progress has been made. He said the names have been changed, but the game plan is still the same. His resolution into the house record in 1974, instituted an investigation into the CIA dirty tricks in Chile. Harrington charged the intelligence agency sponsored the Marxist dictator Salvadore Allende ' s assassination in 1973. Harrington then sought a court determination of the Rep. Michael Harrington exact powers of the CIA. It was the first suit of its kind in American history. " The importance of this is what was disclosed. Attention should go to the agency. Peo- ple should think about it, " he insisted, defending his posi- tion. His vocal opposition to the intelligence agency inspired a presidential commission to study the agency. He said the commission ' s investigation failed to confront the basic questions involved in the intelligence operation. " The issue is secrecy, " Har- rington said. He explained the House, Senate and Presiden- tial commission had not con- fronted the secrecy question whatsoever. He further maintains the mMM B classification system and some congressional rules and regu- lations are being used to hide things from the public. And he stressed the public should have the right to know. " Charter legislation to set the ground rules and limits of domestic and international intelligence operations is needed to guide policymakers in the conduct of such opera- tions, " Harrington said. Harrington has demanded Congress include the following limits on intelligence gathering operations: BAR clandestine interven- tion in the internal affairs of foreign countries to make it clear the strength and great- ness of the U.S. does not depend on dirty tricks . . . IDENTIFY openly intelli- gence personnel abroad " who as specialists . . . have legiti- mate functions to perform in our embassies. " He added he would alter the role of intelli- gence agents, making them collectors and evaluators of information rather than spies and provocateurs. REFORM the system for classifying confidential information by writing clear standards of classification into the law and limiting the num- ber of people who may classify documents. He said these rules and regu- lations are necessary to keep the intelligence agencies from subverting the legitimate power granted them in their charters. Busing The ROAR of the crowd " - A 4 PPHE5M 0 JR ROTS Louise Day Hicks — Restore Our Alienated Rights Nearly two years after court-ordered desegregation sparked violence, demonstra- tions, and racial confronta- tions, the Boston school sys- tem is still unable to get down to the business of education. State and local police have been mobilized to quell dis- turbances. Blacks and whites have been beaten and stabbed. And at one point the national guard was placed on standby alert. Metal detectors are used at schools to search students for weapons. Schools have been closed after violence. Federal Judge W. Arthur Garrity, who ordered the implementation of the deseg- regation plan, has faced death threats and been burned in effigy during anti-busing ral- lies. Police arrested one 24-year- old man only one mile from Garrity ' s Wellesley home after receiving an anonymous tip of an assassination attempt. The man carried a loaded 45 cali- ber automatic. Today, however, the visible signs of violence seem to have diminished. Except for spo- radic uproars, the anger and resistance are more subtle now. The rocks, thrown at blacks in buses in September 1974, became legal barbs between attorneys for the School Com- mittee and the National Asso- ciation for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). " It ' s the death knell of the city, " City Council Woman Louise Day Hicks told report- ers during the fall of 1974. " People will not comply. They will leave the city. " Hicks, re-elected to the city council by the largest margin in Boston ' s history, pledged to use the system to oust busing and restore the educational system to the people. Hicks charged Judge Garrity with subverting the system and removing " just power " from the people ' s duly elected representatives. She later supported legisla- tion to have judges popularly elected, calling for Garrity ' s removal from office. In the same election, Elvira " Pixie " Palladino was elected to the School Committee. Both Hicks and Pallidino support an anti-busing group known as Restore Our Alien- ated Rights (ROAR). And on election eve, Palli- dino told constituents they now had someone " who would speak with a roar " at school committee meetings. Hicks, Pallidino, and other prominent anti-busing leaders have been asked to speak in Dallas, Louisville, and Detroit. Hicks has also been to Washington to support a bill to eliminate forced busing of school children for any pur- pose. ROAR contends their argu- ments are not racial, but merely centered upon main- taining the neighborhood school systems. Garrity ' s decision, first issued as a temporary desegre- gation order in June 1974, was the result of a suit filed against the School Committee by a black mother, charging that Boston operated a dual system. In this case, the federal judge ruled the Boston School Committee was maintaining two separate educational sys- tems. The only criteria for the system was skin color. Garrity further ruled the School Committee had author- ized busing across district lines to maintain the dual sys- tems. The immediate result of the court ' s decision was a tempo- rary desegregation order in June 1974. The ruling was soon followed by appeals from the school committee and mayor ' s sponsoring rallies, mystery motorcades and secret meet- ings in Boston City Council Chambers. The buses rolled on a cloudy September morning, but peace was not the order of the day. Mobs shouting racial slurs, throwing rocks and bottles greeted blacks attempting to enter South Boston High School. Deliberately maintaining a low profile, Boston Police soon cordoned off the area, pushing children to buses and ordering them back to the demarcation points. Roaming groups of whites ambushed the buses as they office. However, the U.S. Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court upheld Garrity ' s deci- sion, citing Brown vs. the Topeka Board of Education in 1954. In that year, the Supreme Court ruled it was unconstitu- tional to segregate on the basis of race, color or creed. As Boston ' s school opening approached, the School Com- mittee stalled, giving experi- enced observers the feeling that a smooth opening would be impossible. Resistance grew throughout the city. ROAR organized; turned back to Columbia Point. The Tactical police force got tough. More than 20 arrests were made, but spo- radic violence continued. School attendance dropped to less than 50 percent as whites at South Boston staged a boycott. ROAR held Sunday rallies to Garrity ' s house or the Bos- ton Globe. Rallies were always spiced with familiar politi- cians seeking anti-busing votes. The Globe, making its pro- busing stand known, was forced to install bullet proof glass to protect employees. Photographers were ferried to and from assignments. A driver waited in the car to speed shutter bugs away in case of trouble. A black man driving through Southie was dragged from his car and beaten. No arrests were made. And police were barely able to pull the man from his car before it was torched by hostile whites. However, the temporary desegregation order came to a calm conclusion in June 1975. And in December, Garrity began working on Phase II, a permanent desegregation plan for the city. A program so broad it affected each school in the city. The judge appointed a group of respected educators and lawyers to formulate the plan. In May, the final plan was submitted, but Garrity took issue with the findings, choos- ing to overrule the recommen- dations of the committee and employ his own ideas. The major points of Garrity ' s proposal were: bus- ing children to district schools; and establishing magnet schools with innovative pro- grams and extensive use and access to colleges and univer- sities. Magnet schools, Garrity said, would be schools that would be available to students from the entire city. " It ' s a rotten plan because it requires busing, " said Pixie Palladino, then a charter mem- ber of ROAR. Palladino ' s reac- tion summarized the anti-bus- ing activitist ' s point of view. The School Committee chal- lenged Garrity ' s order on the grounds he was usurping the authority of the School Com- mittee. However, the U.S. District Court of Appeals upheld Gar- rity ' s decision in a unanimous 51-page opinion. The January decision said Garrity ' s infringement upon the traditional school commit- tee ' s authority was proper in view of the committee ' s his- tory of obstructions. The appeals court said the program fashioned a " diversi- fied educational system offer- ing superior opportunities for children — both black and white. " In 1975, police tactics toward schools ' openings changed. Unlike the low pro- file kept during September 1974, police were visible en masse. " This year we intend to get tough, " said Robert diGrazia, Boston police commissioner. " We don ' t want that one instance which will set off the rest of the city. " On Monday, Sept. 8, 1800 Boston police, 400 state police, 300 MDC police, 200 federal marshals, 50 FBI agents and several justice department officials jammed the streets around the high schools to keep order. Southie, the scene of last year ' s violence was quiet, but Charlestown erupted. Attend- ance for the first four months of school hovered between 60 and 75 percent. Violence walked the streets of Charlestown. Stabbings, stonings, and fights were com- monplace. But after the successful school opening, teachers man- ned the picket lines, instead of the classroom. Educators were protesting low pay and poor educational facilities for stu- dents. A new contract was negoti- ated in early October, but it did more than simply increase teachers ' pay. The contract also provided additional read- ing programs for youngsters, adding remedial reading teachers. But, just as it appeared desegregation was beginning to work, violence erupted at South Boston High School. For the first time during the deseg- regation period school was closed. Garrity removed the head- master and appointed another to the chagrin of the school committee. The School Committee charged the judge was again overstepping his bounds and went to court. However, a cir- cuit court of appeals again upheld Garrity ' s actions. Garrity told the committee they were obstructing the desegregation order and asked them not to interfere. Marian Fahey, appointed superintendent of schools in August, also lashed out at the School Committee in an inter- view published in the Boston Herald-American. Fahey said Boston children were being short changed by the committee ' s constant obstruction of the desegrega- tion order. She said the com- mittee should cooperate and carry out their duty to the school children. Reaction was swift. Several members of the anti-busing forces called for Fahey ' s resig- nation and a public apology. ■ — James Ross — Barry Lass VIETNAM: A time to die A gun went bang A helmet went clang A sol dier cried And, then he died. x DaNang No escape : ace is the place It was during a light moment in 1961 when President John F. Kennedy said to Soviet Pre- mier Nikita Khrushchev, " Let ' s go to the moon together. " Krushchev ' s reply was " Why not? " So on July 25, 1975, 137 miles above earth, two spacecrafts (the Apollo and the Soyuz) launched from their respective pads some 6,500 miles away from each other, linked. It marked the first international docking in space and Apollo ' s final mission. The historic linkup came about when an obvious need for space rescue became nec- essary. In 1972, President Rich- ard Nixon and Soviet Premier Aleksei Kosygin signed a for- mal agreement on a joint mis- sion. The United States astro- nauts and the Russian cosmo- nauts trained for two years and 2,000 for the flight. Thomas P. Stafford, 44, Vance D. Brand, 44 and Donald " Deke " Slayton, 51, one of the seven original Mercury astro- nauts, were chosen by NASA. Aleksei A. Leonov, 41, the first space cadet to walk in space and Valery N. Kubasov, 40, the first man to weld metal in the vacuum of space were chosen as the cosmos by the Russians. The project cost the Ameri- cans approximately $250 mil- lion. The docking module alone cost U.S. taxpayers $100 million. For Americans, the docking procedure was old hat. They had accomplished link-up maneuvers since the Gemini days of the mid-1960 ' s. The Soyuz lifted off from Star City 7Vz hours prior to the Apollo blast off at Cape Canaveral. On docking day, two days after lift-off, the Apollo was drifting a comfort- able ten miles below the Soyuz. Both ships circled the globe as Apollo, a craft with a greater fuel capacity and maneuverability chased the Russian module. On orbit 29, near Chile, Apollo crept within a mile of its quarry. Space intercourse took place before dusk over West Ger- many, allowing both the Rus- sians and Americans direct radio communications with their ships. Upon docking, Stafford and Leonov greeted each other with a warm handshake, a Russian bear-hug and gifts. While the ships were docked for two days, the spacemen visited each other and dined together over potato soup, beefsteak, rye bread and cheese, strawberries and tea with lemon. Stafford con- ducted a guided television tour of Apollo in Russian and Leo- nov did the honors aboard Soyuz in English. Just 38 hours later, the Sovi- ets fired their breaking rockets and headed for home. The Americans remained in orbit for three extra days before landing at their Pacific Ocean splashdown site, 330 miles west of Hawaii. During the past 14 years, 43 Americans have ventured into the uncertain darkness of space. The first was a 15-min- ute jaunt by Alan Shepard on May 5, 1961. All US space travelers have returned unscathed, but the first Apollo trek never got off the ground. Virgil Grissom, Edward White and Roger Chaffee, aboard a spacecraft during a ground test, were killed during a flash fire. How- ever, NASA kept the program alive, allowing 24 men the privilege of viewing the moon up close. Twelve actually landed on the desolate dusty planet. So for all intent and pur- poses, the celestial embrace by the Russians and Americans was the last space venture for the Apollo program. Future space travel will be conducted in a space shuttle, which takes off vertically like a space rocket but can land horizon- tally. The shuttle is the size of a DC-9 and is scheduled for its first mission in 1977. — Glenn S. Feldman Women today Today women are shrugging off the image of the wife being tied to the home and entering professions formerly considered for men only. The women ' s drive has entered every area of Ameri- can life and changed from a mere philosophical idea to a new con- sciousness. The male dominated world, though still not terribly threat- ened, is being nudged further and further aside by persistent females. The belief that women are entitled to equal rights has spread to every layer of our soci- ety. While many women have strong objections to the militant feminists ' style, a 1975 Harris poll found that by 63 percent to 25 percent, Americans favor " most of the efforts to strengthen and change women ' s status in society. " One of the most visible indica- tions of the changing attitude can be seen in the business and pro- fessional area. Some advances have come as a result of affirma- tive action plans and recruiting drives, but many more have come from a growing recognition that women ' s demands for equality are justified. While the top layer of business in this country remains almost entirely male-dominated, women are moving up. More and more women are becoming junior executives and sales representatives for major companies, and are doing best in new fields like computers, com- munications and finance. Seventeen percent of the nation ' s female work force are professionals, although most of them are in the traditionally femi- nine roles of teacher and nurse. However, an increasing number of women are entering medicine and law. Today, seven percent of the country ' s lawyers are females. Women make up the majority of the nation ' s health service indus- try, but overwhelmingly, they are nurses and technicians. Only 9 percent of the physicians are women. While more than 40 percent of all employed women work in tra- ditional female white collar jobs (salesclerks, typists, operators etc.), many women are entering the blue collar job market. Plumbers, telephone installers, pipe fitters and other once mas- culine undertakings are finding competition from strong willed females. Organizations like San Francisco ' s Advocates for Women, and Seattle-based, Mechanica, are helping women find blue-collar jobs, as carpen- ters, machinists, diesel mechan- ics, laborers, and truck drivers. Surprisingly, the U. S. military has moved ahead of industry in eliminating sex barriers. Of a total of 2.1 million people in the armed forces in 1975, 91,000 are women. Almost all of the jobs in the army are opened to women except the infantry, artillery and other direct-combat roles. But even this may change as 1976 will see the first female cadets at each of the three military academies. The political arena has proven harder to penetrate. While more than half of the nation ' s regis- tered voters are women they hold only 5 percent of the elective pos- itions. However, many are opti- mistic. In a 1975 Gallup poll 73 percent of the American public said they would support a quali- fied woman running for the presi- dency. Despite the favorable trends, the women ' s movement has had some setbacks. In 1975, the organ- ized movement fell into factional disputes. Plans for a national strike failed miserably and the National Organization of Women splintered off into another group known as Womensurge. Feminist heroines of the early 70 ' s such as Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem are fading from the scene. Most importantly is the failure to ratify the national Equal Rights Amendment (E.R.A.). As of the beginning of 1976, four more states were needed for ratifica- tion. The amendment makes many voters nervous and uncertain. The wording — " Equality of rights under law shall not be denied or abridged on account of sex " — conjures up for some women the prospect of unisex public toilets, no alimony and female combat troops. Many law- yers believe the act could have unpredictable social results, and many people prefer the more spe- cific anti-discriminations already enacted. Regardless of the setbacks, the women ' s movement will continue to move forward. We already address the " chairperson " and receive mail from the " letter car- rier. " Playboy Magazine has been joined by Playgirl. And Ellen McCormack became the first woman candidate for the Presi- dent to receive funds from the campaign fund legislation. While America has not entirely changed the Code of Hammurabi (women as male property), there is little doubt that there is a new move by the country ' s women to take possession of their lives. As one feminist remarked: " All we ' re asking is that we be recog- nized as full partners — at home, at work, in the world at large. Is that too much? " — Maxine MacPherson gg§| A four-letter word " Co-op is a four-letter word, " was the headline used on a co-op advice column that once ran in the Northeastern News. The description fits, whether as a simple statement of fact or as a symbol of the dissatisfaction that many feel toward the institution that made Northeastern what it is. Surveys show that co-op is an overwhelming factor in the high school senior ' s choice of Northeastern as his school. The student hopes for, and often expects, a good job — that is, work in his major field of study that also brings in a decent sum every week. Whether or not he finds it seems to be the result of a combination of factors — his co-ordinator, the job market and the student himself. Many co-ordinators have said the student is unrealistic when he first arrives at North- eastern, but is generally satis- fied with co-op by the time he is a senior. The students, coordinators and administrators all have their side of the story. In the end, each must judge for him- self if co-op has been all it was cracked up to be. The co-op theory Preparing for a profession Early in the 1900 ' s, Herman Schneider, an engineering pro- fessor at Lehigh University, had an interesting idea. Why not let students work at a job related to their field while they are in school and at the same time make money to help pay for their education? Schneider tried hard to sell his idea to the administration at Lehigh, but without success. Shortly afterward, he moved to the University of Cincinnati, where officials listened to his idea and liked it. So as it was 1906 saw the beginning of a unique educational idea — cooperative education. " Co-op originally started because of two observations about students, " said Vice President of Cooperative Edu- cation Roy L. Woolridge. " The first is every student is prepar- ing for a profession some day. But there are only certain fac- ets of a profession you can learn in the classroom. Some professions even require stu- dent experience as a prerequi- site, such as intern experience for one who wishes to become a doctor. The second is most students find it necessary to earn money. " The question raised then Roy L. Woolridge Dave Martin The Students ' Views . Peter Coppola Electrical Engineering The co-op department was very helpful in placing me in jobs. However, the difficulty arises when a student wants to change his or her job. Students may be forced to fill out petitions to change jobs. The idea of having to fill petition to change jobs ft demeaning — like having to go to court to fight for one ' s rights. A student should be able to apply for other jobs if he ' s quali- fied. A new job could help a stu- dent grow more fully in hi s field of study, and provide rewarding experiences for him. Mechanical Engineering The principles behind the co-op system are excellent. The student has the opportunity to graduate from college with two years expe- rience which costs him only one year of work as a degreed profes- sional. Yes, if a student doesn ' t mind looking for his own co-op job, walking into a brick wall every time he wants to change jobs, and a weekly pay lower than that in a non-professional field, co-op is fine. In short, in principle co-op is ideal, in practice it stinks. was why not design an educa- tional system which would help students pay for educa- tion and at the same time train them for their educational goal? " Frank Palmer Speare, Northeastern ' s first president, did just that when he insti- tuted co-op at Northeastern in 1909. " At that time it was one week in school, one week in work, back and forth, " said Woolridge. " It was nothing like we have today. " If one were to look at the growth of co-op on a graph, Woolridge said, both at North- eastern and throughout the nation, the curve would be a very slow-rising one. The growth would be steady, he said, but slow. " When I first came to North- eastern in 1949, " Woolridge said, " the co-op staff was between eight and 10. There were about 4000 students, including freshmen, and I was responsible for finding jobs in engineering for about 250 stu- dents in both divisions. The only colleges here then were engineering, business, and lib- eral arts. Nationally, there were between 40-50 colleges and universities with some form of cooperative educa- tion. " It was pretty much status quo in the 1950 ' s, Woolridge said, but then came the 60 ' s and the co-op boom. " If you were to take a look at that co-op graph, " Woolridge said, " during the 60 ' s the curve would swing dramatically upward. The biggest impact co-op has made on education has been within the last 15 years. Paul M. Pratt " At Northeastern, the big- gest break for co-op came with the addition of other colleges. It moved from a small co-op program to a program with many different fields. " Nationally, there were a number of reasons why co-op grew. The first was following the JFK assassination when Lyndon Johnson was named President, one of his programs was a war on poverty. It became obvious to his admin- istration the combination of work and study would be ideal to someone coming from an impoverished background. " The second was the Ford Foundation and other such groups said the co-op system was fine for blacks in educa- tional institutions in northern cities which had ghettos. " The third was the ramifica- tions from the Vietnam War. Students began saying ' I don ' t see any connection between what I learn in school and what I see in the real world. How do I apply what I learn to our social problems? ' " The atmosphere was ripe for the change of philosophy. The financial crunch in the late 60 ' s and early 70 ' s helped swing the country ' s attitude toward co-op. " Woolridge said the univer- sity had to make a decision around 1960, asking itself if it had an obligation to help other institutions looking into the co-op program or if it should closely guard co-op and try to keep it within the confines of the university. " We decided to establish the National Commission for Cooperative Education, " said Woolridge, who also is its executive director, " and assist anyone who wanted to start co-op programs. Northeastern has been the primary source of information and training about the co-op system. " Woolridge said there are four reasons why a student today would want co-op. " The first reason is, of course, the training program. Secondly, some students want to use co-op as a testing ground for possible career in a certain field. In other words, the student may say to himself, ' I think I want to be a biologist, Larry Joseph Special Education My four co-op jobs were exciting, challenging and rewarding. I feel these oppor- tunities greatly helped me develop my teaching style. Working with mentally retarded adults (two different co-ops) provided invaluable experience which supported my academic training in the field of special education. My other two jobs were as an assistant kindergarten teacher. Both provided me with thor- oughly enjoyable and fulfilling experiences. All four jobs ena- bled me to grow personally and professionally. Unfortunately, my experi- ences with the advisors in the education co-op department have not been as pleasant. I feel that several of the advisors neglected to inform me of job opportunities. Many have The Students ' Views . failed to properly prepare for job interviews. Suzanne Sack Journalism Like anything else, co-op looks good on paper. It ' s when one tries to turn the theory into practice that you run into trou- ble. Contrary to what the admissions books would have you believe, there is not a rela- ted job for every student. In some cases there aren ' t even jobs. Another fallacy of the program is that you can earn your way through Northeast- ern. Just ask some of my old friends at UMass or Salem State about that one. The fact remains that if 1 had to do it all over again I would still choose the co-op program. The reason . . . over a five- year period I have clarified my career objectives and become confident of my ability in my profession. I should also say that I ' ve been very lucky. I have worked on a national magazine, two newspapers, a network radio station, and a Boston television station. The main reason that I got these jobs was not that I was so extremely talented, but that I had the nerve and determina- tion to go after them. I have spent more time than I care to remember in my jour- nalism co-ordinator ' s office waiting. Waiting to hear about an interview, find out about an interview, set up an interview or get some feedback on a past interview. Come to think of it, I spent my 19th birthday in that office. At this point, no inter- view or job can faze me and I have co-op to thank for that. The program has been success- ful for me because I ' ve worked hard and had parents who sup- ported me all the way through and I don ' t just mean finan- cially. but I ' m not sure. ' He can work at job related to biology and see if the field is what he wants. " Thirdly, some students want a series of life experi- ences and work around the country in nothing related to their field of study. They may want to travel cross-country or overseas just to see what it ' s like, and make enough money just to cover food and rent. This provides an interesting package of experiences which enrich each person. " Fourthly, the need of money to help pay educational costs will always be a main reason for students wanting co-op. " Woolridge said there are now over 1000 colleges and universities in the country with some form of co-op. " And of those, about 12-15 consider co-op, like Northeast- ern, the main reason students attend those schools, " he said. The second largest co-op school in the country, next to Northeastern is Drexel Univer- sity in Philadelphia. Dean of Cooperative Educa- tion Paul M. Pratt said out of the university ' s small begin- nings, now it has a total of about 12,000 students and five co-op departments with about 100 people. " What was a low-profile, in- house department now has a national reputation, " Pratt said. " Every year the number of co-op schools increase between 50 and 100. Every state in the union has at least one school with some form of co-op. " Pratt said students ' attitude toward co-op is changing. " Today ' s student is self-cen- tered. He asks ' What ' s in it for me? ' The quality of co-op goes down because students com- plain and leave the program. The employer needs dependa- ble students. The quality of co- op today is somewhat lower than in years past. It will fluc- tuate because of changing stu- dent attitudes. " Despite the fact Northeast- ern " has already peaked on its maximum student enrollment, " according to Pratt, there are fewer coordi- nators today than a few years ago because of two reasons: One, there has been a slight erosion in the number of stu- dents, and two, the co-op departments are relying more on support people. Pratt said until a few years ago, " 80 percent of the jobs were found in Greater Boston. But we have been concentrat- ing on finding jobs outside the city. Now only 70 percent of jobs are found in Boston. " The biggest enemy of co-op, Pratt said, is the unavailability of jobs. " If there are no jobs, co-op will not work, " he said. " A super-saturation of the market can cause it. An over supply of students can occur. The influx of volunteer help and programs for credit are other factors which lead to the unavailability of jobs. " Another reason, Pratt said, was economic. There may be a Asa S. Knowles The Students ' Views . Mike Molinaro Management I ' m rather thankful. I started out in physical edu- cation and it ' s only through co-op that I found out that physical education was not where I was going to be happy. It guided me in a choice of careers and saved from a career I wouldn ' t be happy with. The student can make his co-op assignment any- thing he wants. A student can either hide in a job or make a worth- while experience of it. Also co-op led to my placement in a very good job for a career. demand for bankers, for instance, but because of the economic situation no one can be hired. " The alumni have been almost fanatic in their enthusi- asm for co-op, " Pratt said. " Our most successful alumni have been products of co-op. " The second-largest univer- sity in the Western Hemi- sphere which has the most number of co-op students is the University of Waterloo in Canada, with over 5000 stu- dents, Pratt said. " Anything that weakens the co-op program weakens the university, " he said. " If the co- op program were to go out of business tomorrow, Northeast- ern would go out of business within six months. " Chancellor Asa S. Knowles, president of Northeastern from 1959-1975, said when he came to Northeastern he was " gung-ho for education and for the co-op plan. " He said he wanted to promote co-op nationally through the National Commission for Co- operative Education and at Northeastern by establishing new colleges. During his term as president, Knowles estab- lished eight colleges. " It ' s been more of a gradual growth of co-op at Northeast- ern by the addition of the new colleges, " Knowles said. " There was a limit to what we could do with the existing col- leges if we wanted to promote co-op. " Knowles said up until the mid-sixties " educators tended to think our program was too vocational and tended to look down their noses at this type of education. But we weren ' t different from any other insti- tution. We had to meet the standards of other colleges for the purpose of accreditation. " Around 1965, Knowles said, the general attitude toward co- op began to change and insti- tutions interested in co-op looked to Northeastern because of its size. During the Knowles years the university tripled its enrollment. Knowles, who has written the " Handbook of Cooperative Education, " said a friend of his commented to him the place- ment program at Northeastern, both co-op and alumni, is " so far superior to state colleges there ' s no comparison. " Regarding co-op ' s future at Northeastern, Woolridge said he sees a shift in the four rea- sons why students seek a co- op education. " With the growth of low-cost public edu- cation, are those institutions going to be the place where students will go for education? Is it possible Northeastern will be forced to attract only mid- dle-class students? If it occurs, there will be a change in the shift. " Nationally, " said Wool- ridge, " co-op programs will increase. There will be a con- tinual expansion of co-op. Whereas now about one third of colleges have co-op, in the future you will see about 50 percent have it. Right now there are about 200,000 stu- dents on co-op. This will be up to 500,000 within five or six years. There ' s a big change taking place in educational cir- cles and co-op is one of the big factors. " Co-op is not just a fad. There will be some lasting changes made in the system. " — Michael Coogan The coordinators Caught in the middle Possibly no one person in the entire university commu- nity is more widely known to students than the co-op coor- dinator. Even entering fresh- men know that such people exist. A co-op coordinator must be a flexible individual with a Steve Kane wide variety of interests, a cer- tain amount of curiosity, and must like dealing with all kinds of people said Carole Lilley, coordinator for history, political science, and modern languages. Lilley said a great deal of patience and determination are needed to deal with admin- istrators, employers and stu- dents. " Some students are unwill- ing to accept some of the jobs that are available to them. Stu- dents just beginning in the co- op program are often unsure of their career goals and the type of jobs they want and are qualified for, " she said. As students become adjusted to the co-op program they begin to accept " the co-op department as it is " and are willing to take any job Lilley said. But there are still those students that won ' t take any job the department has to offer she added. Lilley, an alumna of North- eastern, got her job in the co- op department " by accident. " She participated in the co-op program while in school and had a job with the National Parks Service in Philadelphia. After graduation Lilley worked for the State of Massa- chusetts and then through graduate placement got a job as an assistant to her old co-op coordinator. Co-op is a challenge for biol- ogy coordinator and Associate Professor Stephen Kane. Kane says biology students are some of the best in the uni- versity but admits he has prob- lems. " Some of the students hinder me in finding them a job because they only want a particular job that is not avail- able, " said Kane. He added that his students are usually employed in jobs they like and related to their majors. Complaints Kane receives concerning co-op are usually from students just beginning the program. Before coming to Northeast- ern in 1969 Kane taught junior high school in Peabody. " I found teaching very frustrat- ing because there was no chance for growth, " he said. Kane turned down a teach- ing assignment when he first came to the university " because I didn ' t want to get locked into research. " He enjoys working with stu- dents but finds the travelling involved in being a co-op coor- dinator sometimes difficult. Travel for Kane has included numerous trips to Washington, Carole Lilley D.C. and several ventures to Israel where he has set up a co-op program. Kane is a consultant to Mad- ison Park High, Northeastern ' s magnet school, and has helped design co-op programs at Colby and Colgate Colleges. Robert Vozzella works with education majors. Employment is sometimes difficult for education stu- dents, especially during the summer he said. The summer quarter finds about 50 percent of the education students working in jobs that have nothing to do with their majors such as secretarial work or waitressing. In the fall quarter the situa- tion usually changes. With schools reopening most stu- dents work in schools or other areas related to education said Vozzella. " Most students are happy or at least satisfied with their jobs, " he added. Paul M. Pratt, dean of co- operative education agrees. The majority of the co-op stu- dents are satisfied with their jobs he said. Problems stu- dents complain of are that they can ' t get hold of their coordi- nators or they don ' t like their job said Pratt. Coordinators are doing a good job for the students he said. " If a coordinator has unemployed students he should be worried and is out developing jobs for the stu- dents, " Pratt said. Vozzella said the coordina- tors in the co-op department work hard to find jobs for stu- dents. " When a company or school for one reason or another decides not to partici- pate in the co-op program any longer coordinators usually find jobs to replace the lost positions, " he said. Vozzella enjoys his work but would consider leaving if something better came up. As an undergraduate he majored in journalism and was a sports writer for the Boston Globe. Graduate work at Northeast- ern found Vozzella majoring in English, minoring in history and landing a job as co-op coordinator in secondary edu- cation. He plans to pursue his doc- torate and continue on in the field of administration and higher education. The Students ' Views . . Derrick Stewart Management The co-operative education sys- tem at Northeastern is basically a very sound system. Of course, there are many faults which stem from the administrative or bureaucratic process of a large university. I still find that North- eastern is the only college with such a comprehensive system of work and study. There are many students who came to Northeastern with the impression that the university guarantees a job no matter what. I had that impression. If one thinks about this logi- cally, this university or any busi- ness cannot guarantee anyone a job if economics or related factors are taken into consideration. At the moment, due to economic adversity, the demand for jobs far outweighs the supply and there- fore creates many problems for students. In assessing my co-op jobs, I found two weaknesses on the part of the employers. First, employers are and were afraid to train stu- dents or let them get experience in the mainstream of their business. Second, students aren ' t used to their optimum ability. Instead, employers tend to give co-ops triv- ial and boring jobs. Employers are afraid that if they train students or let them get into the mainstream of business it might become a liability in the long run because of the students ' mobility. Although this might be true to some extent, if students are given the opportunity and encour- agement they can become assets for their respective firms. Industrial and mechanical engineering coordinator An- thony Rotondi finds his job " challenging, fascinating, interesting, and a nice situa- tion to be in. " Rotondi is a former indus- trial engineer who went through the co-op program himself. " I had co-op students working with and for me and as a result I worked closely with the university, " he said. Rotondi has no plans to leave the co-op department and is " very happy in this kind of work. " He is also active in profes- sional engineering societies and said the field of co-opera- tive education is constantly growing. " You can gain a knowledge of everything going on in other universities and the real world through co-op, " Rotondi con- cluded. — David Wood The SAC Does anybody know I ' m here? Upset with co-op? There is very little you can do to change it, according to George Cohen, Div. A chairman of the co-op Student Advisory Com- mittee (SAC). " There are a lot of problems with co-op, " said Cohen, " and there is not very much 10 stu- dents per quarter (the SAC) can do about them. " The purpose of the SAC, according to the Co-op Hand- book, is to " increase student influence on the administra- tion of cooperative education programs. " In a release to freshmen and Great expectations Why do people come to Northeastern? The stock answer from administrators and students alike is usually " Co-op. " The Dean ' s Student Advi- sory Committee on Co-op sur- veyed freshmen in 1975, before the freshmen were exposed to official orientation by the co- op department, to determine if there is a gap between admin- istration and student percep- tions of the goals of the univer- sity and co-op. The survey showed that in addition to choosing North- eastern for co-op, many of the students believed they would gain experience and make money at the same time while on co-op. The first question asked was: " What do you think are the goals, aims or purposes of Northeastern? " Three-quarters of the fresh- men who responded said Northeastern exists to better the student in a variety of ways, especially in career training and academic devel- opment. About 15 percent said Northeastern exists to better society by turning out a better brand of student. In the second question, freshmen were asked why they chose Northeastern to spend their college life. In answering this question, 66 percent of those responding mentioned co-op as a reason for coming to Northeastern, and half of those said co-op was their only reason for com- ing to NU. In the final question, stu- dents were asked what they perceived to be the purpose of co-op. While half said experience in their major was what they hoped to obtain from co-op, 47 percent said they expected experience and money. The SAC, in its sub-commit- tee report, said it would work to " psychologically prepare them to accept the fact that the experiential factors and finan- cial opportunities of co-op jobs are not always commen- surate or even available in the same job. " transfer students entitled " The Co-op Crib Sheet, " the SAC calls itself " a sounding board for students and a sanctioned organization in our communi- cation with the co-op depart- ment. " Cohen, however, said that the SAC isn ' t allowed to com- pletely perform all of its func- tions. Cohen said that the SAC members speak frankly, but often their advice to co-op Dean Paul M. Pratt goes unheeded. Pratt looks at the SAC as " some students who will make the department look good when they need someone to make them look good, " said Cohen. " This is the type of people the committee attracts. " " We need people who are pissed off at co-op and can see its faults, " said Cohen. Dean Pratt agrees that more students on the SAC — his personal advisory organ — would be a definite asset, and said he ' d like to see two stu- dents from each school on the committee. But Pratt said the committee is effective. " They tell it like it is, " said Pratt with a grin. He said the SAC has been an invaluable aid to him since its inception in 1967. Since then, it has grown in size and respon- sibility, and supplies the department ' s delegates to the national co-op convention. The SAC ' s most recent con- tribution to the department ' s decision-making process, according to Dean Pratt, was to review candidates for the position of accounting co-ordi- nator and instructor, which was recently filled by the appointment of William A. Sloan. " The students picked one person, " said Cohen, " and Pratt hired another. " Cohen charged that Pratt also selects those students who will represent the university at the annual national confer- ence. " He (Pratt) has historically used his personality to influ- ence the advisory board, " said Cohen. " The students aren ' t going to get anything done unless they stick together, " the student said SAC member said. " But they won ' t do that — not in 1975. " Cohen admitted that, " Even though you are not listened to, you have a chance to speak your mind " on the SAC. Adam Sadlowski, the Divi- sion B. SAC chairman, said last winter that lack of student participation is indeed a major factor in SAC ineffectiveness. " It pisses me off that there is such low membership, " he said, adding that he felt co-op is important enough to war- rant student interest in the SAC. Sadlowski said he ' d like to see the SAC become com- pletely independent of the dean ' s office, but he doesn ' t foresee such a move until more students show an active interest in the committee. The lack of support is evi- dent by reading minutes from SAC meetings, which are filled with such phrases as: " We need help — bodies and ideas. " Also, a meeting fell through last February when only one student, two faculty members and five administrators showed up to discuss co-op research projects. Nevertheless, the SAC did manage to get some work done, mostly in the area of researching and surveying ways to improve the co-op process and image (see related story). Apathy, the nemesis of most other facets of campus life, hurt the SAC, however, and student leaders agree the com- mittee won ' t go much further The Students ' Views . Kenneth Carter Civil Engineering What I ' m supposed to say is that co-op and the co-op department have been very good to me. What I really would like to say is that I ' ve been very lucky, being in the right places at the right times. With my field being civil engineering, I thought at first that finding a job would be easy. Heck, co-op was started by civil engi- neers. Rude Awakening 1: " In the end, it ' s you that takes care of you. " My first co-op experience was easy enough, though the realization that it required quite a bit of effort on my part to make an impression was a bit surprising. At first it was, " We will get you a job. " I soon found out it was, " We will refer you to a job and then you ' re on your own. " Just peachy. Here I am, a schlub fresh out of high school with no knowl- edge of job interview techni- ques at all. After two strike- outs, the third time up was a grand slam — my first real job and probably my most rewarding co-op experience, with the New Hampshire DPW. This job was three- quarters of practical real world field experience, the kind that all engineers should have. But then it was time to broaden my horizons with a consulting firm, E. Lionel Pavlo Engineering. Again another rewarding experi- ence and even more impor- tant to me because of how well the company was to me in treating me like a profes- sional and not a social secu- rity number. But the eco- nomic situation for engi- neers soon became very shaky. Lay-offs became a common occurrence in what was once a very stable field. There was no outlook that even appeared good for the immediate future. Still, the company kept me on and I even survived one layoff. But the bottom fell out and the long-feared layoff hap- pened. Two hours after being notified of my layoff, my third and final co-op job was set. My final term of co- op was spent with the Envi- ronmental Protection Agency involved in design review. Again, a rewarding experience, since I got to see the inner workings of the federal bureaucracy at its finest. The thing that I will prob- ably remember most about co-op is that it don ' t come easy. I would advise all stu- dents who are involved with co-op not to approach it as a " I ' m-paying-for-you-to-give- it-to-me " type of proposi- tion. And don ' t expect co-op to pay your tuition either. Co-op employers consider you cheap labor. You will not be paid a professional ' s salary. You probably won ' t be paid a competitive co-op scale pay either. The job market is tight, so much so that you must fight tooth and nail to get a job. Be real- istic. When co-op fails, get out there and do it yourself, because the day is coming when you will have to do it yourself to survive. without a push from those who have the most to gain — the students themselves. — Chris Morton A new place to wait The Students ' Views . . . Paul Laevis Political Science I worked at Star Market before coming here and stayed there on co-op because of the money. I went in with an open mind. I can ' t say co-op really let me down. I could have gone to Washington, but the job paid less and I didn ' t want to get out of school owing a lot of money. Somehow, I would have made it but this way was easier. I ' d have to say most kids in political sci- ence like what they do. Diane Curran Kidwell Journalism I expected to be doing menial tasks, but I showed I was capable of more and was given more responsi- bility each time. I learned from my experience. A person who shows himself to be responsible has a jump on others — they have that much more experience. I feel I have the jump on a graduate of a similar institution because of that experi- ence. If all goes as planned the co- op department will move into the $2 million Institute for Co- operative Education on July 1. The building has been in the planning stages since the fall of 1973 and has been under construction for a year said Sidney Austin, associate dean of co-operative education. Construction was originally opposed by the Fenway Pro- ject Area Committee (FenPAC) and the Fenway Interagency Group (FIG) because the uni- versity had not issued a " mas- ter plan " for further growth in the community. Loring Thompson, vice president and dean of planning said the drafting of a master plan was impossible. However, the Boston Zoning Board refused to approve con- struction of the building with- out a plan. In January 1975 Northeastern issued a " master plan. " Funding for the building is coming from individuals, pri- vate foundations, and corpora- tions said Eugene Repucci, vice president of development. No tuition money is going into the construction and there is no federal money available for building, he said. To date the university has received grants from 11 indi- viduals, three foundations, and 17 corporations. The grants total $1.4 million and the university is still trying to raise the rest of the money Repucci added. The six-story structure is located on Huntington Avenue in the parking lot between John A. Volpe Hall and Green- leaf Street. The building will house the Department of Co- operative Education, the Cen- ter for Co-operative Educa- tion, the Co-op Research Cen- ter, the Institute for Off-Cam- pus Experience and Co-op Education, the Center for Sec- ondary School Work Experi- ence, and the National Com- mission for Co-operative Edu- cation. The building will contain 91 offices, three conference rooms, two meeting rooms, and a co-operative education research library said Austin. The sixty parking spaces lost due to construction of the building will not be replaced because of the Environmental Protection Agency ' s order to cut back parking 25 percent said Thompson. He added that the Columbus Avenue lot would help solve the parking problem. " The co-op building is a good idea. It allows for cen- tralizations of all areas of co- op that are now scattered in Richards and Churchill, " said Austin. He added that no addi- tional staff is anticipated for the co-op department at the present time. — Mary Concannon 189 Alice Cohen English I was very happy with the idea of making reasonable money. I didn ' t like one job for personal reasons. I went into school with the thought that I wanted to be a librar- ian, but my co-op job turned me off from lib ary work. At least I learned that. I expected to be trained to really work in a library, but I spent too much time running errands and doing menial things. I worked for the Army, where everything has to be done by form, everything has a number. I feel like I was pressured into the job. I told my co-op advisor I didn ' t want to go back to the job, but she talked me into it. I kind of resent the fact I was pressured into it. Jay Kroopnick Accounting I got to learn a lot. Co-op points out your weaknesses and strengths and helps you make decisions. It met my expectations. I figured I ' d get some experience in accounting and I did. The first interview was with an old insurance company and the guy that interviewed me was stone deaf and didn ' t want me to ask any ques- tions. The Students ' Views . Bob Stone History The co-op program at NU has benefited me both finan- cially and educationally. It has given me experience out in the working world and has financially helped me through school. The co-op program was one of main reasons for enrolling in the university and it has lived up to my expectations. John Sexton Economics It ' s been an educational experience dealing with people outside the school. It ' s made me more realistic. I had illusions about how the business world work, and co-op shattered my illusions. I ' ve always been treated well by the co-op depart- ment. Jim Dawson Journalism I worked in Letters to Edi- tor to the Globe — I expected more practical aspects of the Boston Globe. I found it exciting, espe- cially during Watergate — to be able to walk through a conference room full of edi- tors. I even received a bomb threat over the phone — a direct touch with reality. Charles Webster Political Science As a high school senior, the lure of co-op was irre- sistible. Wow! Job experi- ence along with a bachelor ' s degree. Why doesn ' t every- body go to Northeastern? As I was to learn, however, co- op is not what it ' s cracked up to be. The first indicator of things to come occurred when I met my advisor for the first time. She asked me what kind of career I wanted. When I told her I didn ' t know and I had cho- sen Northeastern (and co- op) to help me decide, all I received in return was an expression of astonishment. Well, since that incident ages ago, co-op has been like a rubber ball bobbing up and down on an ocean — good jobs, bad jobs, okay jobs. I suppose that now that I have an excellent chance to retain my only really good co-op job after I graduate, I ' d have to say that in the end, it ' s been beneficial. But I ' ll never forget the aggravation, the prospect of unemployment, an advisor who informed but never advised, and withheld information. ... M 5iif : r : i! fft .

I came out in sty le and finished that way. I was a bit disappointed in the apa- thy of students. I was not afraid to perform as I succeeded. I knew some who did not lift a finger for the pride of Northeastern or themselves. It was as if we should never listen to each other.

The unique quality of co-op, the friendships and the overall exposure to today ' s world that the past five years have given me are possessions that I would never sacrifice. Stephen Regal Management Northeastern has fulfilled my expectations of what a college should be and the co-op system not only helped me get a college education but it also provided me with inva- luable, practical, real world work experience.

Robert Radin Accounting " It is a paradox that in our time of drastic rapid change, when the future is in our midst devouring the present before our eyes, we have never been less certain about what is ahead of us. " — E. Hoffer Barry Morris Management In the last five years a great deal has changed, which is reflected in the mood of the people at Northeastern. Uncertainty has set in and indicative of this was the multi- tude of opportunity in 1971 and the lack of it in 1975. How- ever knowing Northeastern ' s offerings, I am confident the situation will change for the better. David Cohen Transportation Without a doubt, the co-op system has helped develop my future in the bu siness world. Like all universities NU has its problems, but I learned to " roll with the punches.

" Joseph Gresci Accounting Education and work experience are necessary to enter today ' s business environment. In order to maintain and adapt to the ever-changing, broadening influences of the business world, education and experience are vital. Find- ing the right combination of the two provides the knowl- edge needed to stay on top. Harry Burton Management College life should be divided fairly equally between one ' s studies, social interaction, and work experience. Northeastern has given me the opportunity to learn a great deal in all these areas. The five years have been most rewarding. Bradford Cohen Accounting Spacey and spunky, subdued but not submerged. Possibly superhuman, maybe supernatural, hopefully not superficial Shy, but not a shyster. Simplehearted but not simple- minded, Soft spoken but not soft headed. Steven Marshall Finance and Insurance As I entered Northeastern in September 1971, an upper- classman told me that I would not fully appreciate the cal- iber of education and the value of my college experiences until I was about to graduate. He was right, although at that time, I could not comprehend the significance of his statement. Now I fully appreciate and respect the obliga- tion which NU has fulfilled for me in many respects. And I hope I have fulfilled my obligations to the university and that I will continue to do so.

Lawrence A. Joseph Special Education " EDUCATION " comes from the Latin root " e-ducere " which means " to bring or lead out. " It implies a bringing out and developing of an individual ' s full capacity for life. " INSTRUCTION " literally means " to build into. " It implies the process of pumping information into people. — derived from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi We must recognize that at Northeastern and in our soci- ety, that we have too much instruction and all too little education.

Primes Pharmacy Northeastern University is a memorable experience that every human being, regardless of age, sex, race, color, or creed should experience at least once in their lifetime. Then they too will be able to reminisce whether it was all worth it or if Northeastern is just a bottomless pit, lined with tuition payments. Manuel A.

Jones Pharmacy Once settled in a not-so-new dormitory, classes begin and people are met from throughout the world. As times passes, every conceivable lifestyle is encountered; and you still remain a number in many respects. Graduation is a personal triumph. Larry C. Goldstein Pharmacy Life at Northeastern is just like one big escalator ride. You have to invest time, effort, and money to keep the stairs moving towards the floor of future success. When the ride is over, only memories of the climb remain. John R. Evans III Pharmacy The past should teach, not scold. I ' ll forget my com- plaints, it ' s all past now. We must forgive, all memories are emotions. Oh Huskies — I hope you ' ll always remain there — you will in my Ell Center! My school, my city, my nation, my world, and myself perhaps don ' t agree all the time. The past five years were cruel, but life is happy-sad, and Northeastern is real. C.K. — Thanks, I needed that!

With deepest and sincere gratitude to all for their price- less help. Kenneth A. Carter, Jr. Civil " I refuse to let tomorrow rush by me without taking me along for the ride . . . " It seems fitting to thank everyone who got me here in one piece, but most importantly, my future in-laws, my family, and my Debbie. Raymond G. Bants Civil " The challenge, not as laborious as expected and a feel- ing of disappointment in myself after five years that other goals should have been pursued with more zealous. " " Five years and I still can ' t figure out the people of this world and the reasons behind their actions. It makes you wonder if the time was worth spending. " Robert Uliss E.E. Tech After five years of getting pushed, shoved and robbed, waiting in the cold driving rain, it is high time that NU did something for its subway commuters. My idea: put up a shelter along the tracks with a bench. (approximate cost — $1,000, federal funds are available) Adam B. Sadlowski Mechanical In my case I have a great deal to be thankful for. If it was not for co-op, I would be (most likely) working my pants off in some half-assed place. That is definitely the biggest thing NU has going for it. I have worked with the co-op staff and they have put up with a lot of " bullshit " from me the last five years. Roy D. Wallen Electrical (To the tune of Alice ' s Restaurant Massacree) You can make all of your dreams come true on Hunting- ton Avenue (if you ' ve got the money). Walk right in and around the back. We ' re just this side of the railroad tracks. You can make all your dreams come true on Huntington Avenue. Now it all started about five years ago.

Stephen Grumbach Political Science Leonard Wilmot Accounting Message to the Class of 1976 I extend to all members of the Class of 1976 my sincerest congratulations. It hardly seems possible that it was five years ago when most of you first came to the Fall Orientation program which marked the begin- ning of your Freshman year at the University. These years which slipped by so quickly have been busy and problem-filled ones in the life of the University Community. We have seen politi- cal activism reach a high point and subside, with the conclusion of the Vietnamese War. There have been years of inflation and serious eco- nomic recession which have placed heavy bur- dens on students struggling to cover educational and living costs. These have not been easy years, but I hope in reflection you will conclude that they have been rich and productive years in terms of your per- sonal and intellectual growth. Members of the Faculty and Administration hope that you will take away at graduation many happy memories of your college years, that you have made warm friendships which will endure, and that you have come to a more realistic understanding of your own abilities, talents and potential. I should like to make a prediction. Five years from today you will have an enhanced apprecia- tion of your University and the value of the edu- cation which you have received here. As I travel about and talk to large numbers of Alumni, I sense the pride which they feel in their institu- tion. They have had an opportunity to measure their academic preparation and personal qualifi- cations against alumni of other institutions in graduate study, in industry and in the profes- sions. They continuously affirm that, while Northeastern like other universities can be improved in many ways, their total educational experience at Northeastern prepared them well for the challenges of later life. As you graduate this June and proceed to fur- ther higher education, or to immediate careers in business, industry, public service or other pro- fessions, you may be sure that your University is proud of your past accomplishments and sin- cerely hopes that the future years bring you per- sonal happiness and significant success in what- ever career you undertake.
