1980 TOW Choosing the theme for a yearbooK i-i Liuufii Ijc-v ou . .1.1 year wasn ' t like any other year, the theme had to be taiior-made for 1980. " The year in headlines " was a natural theme in every respect The Administration Building fire partially paralyzed the workings of the University. An upswing in enrollment surprised everyone, as did the about-face when the losing Bearcat football team won the conference championship While the campus made news almost every day, it also became involved with national headlines. Students intently followed the Iranian crisis, as well as trying to cope with the energy crunch and inflation. The 1980 TOWER staff tried to capture all the news in a 352-page publication As working reporters and photojournalists, the staff strived to make the yearbook an interesting and factual account of the school year-a history book rather than merely a memory book. Reading the 1980 TOWER should strengthen your concept of the school year. It was a year in the headlines.

In the past, the University had been a sleep- jn(, • ' ' — ■ ' " " -: -v-ir after year, gr.K. ;, ... : 1 teaching others. But for University personnel and students, this year was different. It was a year of news. A year of headlines. As the fall semester rolled around, the University looked forward to the 1980s. Freshmen enrollment had increased al- most 15 percent. In March the institution would ce r ' - " ' r its 75th anniversary. But before th. uration could start, a disaster struck the University July 24 when the Administration Building caught fire. Before the flames could be extin- guished, 60 percent of the historic building lay in ruin. It was days before the exact amount of damage was determined. In the end, two theaters were destroyed, both campus radio stations were heavily damaged, and key academic areas as well as administrative offices were affected. 4i 1 it-T The year in headlines n ' espite all the adverse headlines caused by the fire, the University contin- ued plugging away. It was " business as usual " according to President B.D. Owens, as classes continued the next day. All the offices and classrooms in the Ad Building were moved elsewhere. Faculty members had to double up, and class- rooms were crowded more than ever. But somehow the University continued, and instead of destroying the spirit of the institution, the fire seemed to lead the University on to bigger and better things. As the fire ' s flames died with the west wing of the building, administrative changes were made. Titles were changed and new positions were created. Other officials moved on because of the extra pressure the fire had put on their jobs.

' ut others stayed and settled down tor the upcoming year and began to cope with other headlines. A summer storm caused damage to the Wells Learn- ing Center and blew part of the roof off the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. These headlines put a squeeze on the University finances, and a cut in the operating budget was forthcoming. So officials had to find another way to battle inflation. One way was energy, with some offices cut back to four-day weeks and gasoline consumption reduced. The University made area headlines when a waste-to-energy plan was proposed. But not all the headlines were adverse for the campus. The bill to get a swimming pool addition to Lamkin Gym passed and construction started on the project. Head- lines were generated by the sports teams when Vernon Darling finished second in the NCAA Division II national champion- ships. After a poor start, the football team started to come back and won several games in a row at the close of the season. New coaches dotted the basketball scene when both former coaches resigned. Four new coaches filled their positions. -Carole Patterson The year in headlines O rganizations on campus made headlines too. A fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, wanted to gain admittance to fraternity row, while a sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, struggled to stay on campus as it reorganized. While off-campus students fought the inflation crunch, women in the old dorms complied with an escort service, when incidents of male harrassment alarmed University officials. Every week it was something different for the campus, and headlines were made all the time. For the institution it was a unique year: a year in headlines.

L t ifeat the University was altered by the relocation of classes following the Administration Building fire. Students who had missed the summer filled with headlines were faced with the inconvenience of finding their classes moved. Home economics students were happy to find their department was still intact and in use. Speech students were seen wandering around Golden Hall in search of classes. The agriculture depart- ment was concentrated into the Ag- Mechanics Lab and theater majors pursued their degrees in the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. Broadcasters relocated twice in the shuffle. After the fire they were moved into Wilson Hall pending completion of a communications center north of the Thompson-Ringold Industrial Arts Building. In the winter they moved into this temporary building. Aside from the confusion associated with relocations, the student body encountered only the usual difficulties in adjusting to procedural changes. A well-organized re-adjustment plan helped make student life much less confusing than it could have been.

THAT ' S LIFE 11 Students cannot live. By classes alone Classes and studying were not the only pastimes that kept students occupied during the year. With an increased student enrollment came an increased participation in outside social activities, including intramurals, backgammon, jogging, bike riding, television-watching and partying. in order to relax from studying, many students chose a physical activity, such as jogging or biking. " I like riding because it ' s relaxing, " said Brian Boyer, who rides daily. " It ' s not like riding in a car going fast. It ' s a real fluid motion, especially when you pick up speed, and you get to see a whole lot of beautiful scenery. " Jogging was also a popular pastime. There were as many reasons for jogging as there were students who jogged. Among other reasons, students jogged for exercise, relaxation and just plain fun. " It makes you feel and look healthier, " said Sarah Sheets. " It kind of clears your head and makes you feel good. I get bogged down from things, and it ' s so nice to run outside. " " Sports for all " was the idea behind intramurals, a program that filled students ' athletic inter- ests. Events included group sports such as flag football, basketball and volleyball as well as individualized sports such as ping pong and raquetball. " I would guess at least 50 percent of our student body parti- cipates in one sport or another, " said Union Director Marvin Silliman. After a long day of classes and studying, many students chose to IN THE STUDENT UNION games room, Chris Montgomery tries his luck with a pinball machine.

Old favorites such as " The Love Boat, " " M A S H " and " Char- lie ' s Angels " were joined by new programs such as " Out of the Blue " and " Struck by Lightning. " One of the major ways to spend spare time was partying. Frat- ernities held various parties throughout the year. Students visited the local bars and attended many private parties Tim Scott said he did most of his partying on the weekends He, like many others, thought getting out and enjoying himself was important for a well-balanced successful college experience. " It ' s a way to feel more at home and comfortable in the environ- ment, " Scott said. Linda Carand found that parti- cipating in activities besides studying was a good way to prepare herself for the outside world. " Learning to get along in social circles other than the ones normally associated with school life is just as important as the education I am getting from books. When I have my degree and get a job, I ' m going to get involved in things other than my work. I think the hobbies and skills I ' m gaining in meeting new people will help me fit into new social situations later.

" Inter-Residence Council spon- sored the event, and the activities included egg beaters, mattress roll, egg head, honeymoon get- away, tug-a-war, spider walk and water slide. " Some of the events, like the mattress roll, were really hard, " said Carter, " but it was a lot of fun. " Thirteen teams competed, and prizes were given to the top six finishers. Even with eggs on their faces, baths in mud and with bumps and bruises on their bodies, everyone who participated said he had a terrific .time. It wasn ' t that they won or lost, but that they had played the game. -Kathy Karg " Dave Cieseke ALMOST ANYTHING GOES 15 L AL I HOUCH THE CONCERT was held on Good Friday, almost 1,000 people decided to stay on campus to listen to England Dan and John Ford Coley Besides playing their top-40 hits, the duo played tunes from their recent release " Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jive, " --Dave Cieseke A rock ' n ' roll Easter weekend 16 CONCERT ROGER VOURDOLIRIS OPENED the spring concert.

About 1,000 people decided to stay. The concert, held in Lamkin Gymnasium, dealt a dose of good old-fashioned rock and roll to the Easter weekend crowd. Not everyone at the Good Friday show was a college student, however. According to Irene Huk, director of student activities, the concert was the first m University history to sell tickets actively to outsiders, in the past, students had to show student identification and were allowed to buy two tickets. Theoretically, the crowds were composed of students and their guests. Union Board, with representa- tives from Inter-Fraternity Coun- cil, Panhellenic Council, Haram- bee House and Student Senate, chose the bands and advertised it locally as well as on campus. However, tickets, which were $4.50 each, could only be purchased on campus. Although Danny Seals and J ohn Ford Coley were typically mellow rockers, the release of their " Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jive " album shortly before their campus appearance showed a more gutsy side of their music. Playing such recent top-40 hits as " Love is the Answer, " Seals and Coley kept the crowd on its feet The concert was opened by Roger Vourdouris, who had recently gained national recogni- tion for his single " Get Used to It. " Vourdouris, who performed in an NWMSU T-shirt, received a warm reception from the crowd, despite his newness to the music world. -Carole Patterson CONCERT 17 FortI did not and? " PRESIDENT B.D. OWENS helps Mattie Dykes to the lecturn during graduation ceremonies. Dykes, graduate and former professor, received the Distinguished Alum- ni and Distinguished Service Award from the University. A sunny goodbye For the first time in two years it did not " rain on their parade " and graduation went off without a hitch. " It really didn ' t take that long, " Beth Ceperley said, " and it was a rather enjoyable program It wasn ' t that boring " " Nothing really spectacular happened. No one seemed to make a big deal out of it like they do in high school, " Rod Nelson said. Before the 453 graduates received their diplomas, they listened to E. Thomas Coleman, Missouri ' s Sixth District con- gressman, give the commence- ment address. He told the graduates, their friends and families that the challenge of the 1980s is for a renewal of the spirit and independence in the Ameri- can people. " It was we the people who built this country and not the govern- ment, and it is we the people who must again declare our independ- ence and demand more control over our lives, " Coleman said. The Missouri congressman called the social upheaval of the 1960s a time of social awakening to some critical problems. How- ever, the government had intrud- ed into every part of American life, he said. Coleman then told the grad- uates that the major problems they would face in the upcoming decade were inflation, energy and the increasing lack of respect for the United States. Although these issues might not be as glamorous as issues of earlier decades, Coleman said, they were more fundamental and important. Mattie Dykes, a 1919 graduate and professor emeritus of ' Eng- lish, also spoke to the graduating class. She received the Distin- guished Alumni and Distin- guished Service Award from the University. After Dykes finished her address and the diplomas were handed out, the graduates filed out of Lamkin Gymnasium. " I felt relieved that I didn ' t have to come back to school again, " Nelson said. -Dave Gieseke DURING GRADUATION cere- monies, Tim Barksdale waits with other graduates to sit down Barksdale wore his cowboy hat throughout the ceremony.

Maryville welcomed summer students with high gas prices and energy-saving plans that not only affected their budgets but their daily routines as well. A combined effort was made by students and the administration as they strived to survive the inevitable crunch. --Frank W Mercrr Frank W Merier An attempt to conserve gas in University vehicles was made when the University purchased Cushman vehicles and limited their trips to town to the bare minimum. The University also maintained an 80-degree thermo- stat setting, and some offices changed from a five-day to a four-day work week. The summer months aided students in their drive to save energy. Walking and bicycling were reasonable alternatives to wasting gas in their cars for trips around campus and town. " I have a car, but I find in Maryville during the summer a ten-speed is actually better, for economic reasons as well as exercise and fitness reasons, " John Jackson said. " The only time I use my car is in bad weather, when 1 can ' t really ride my bike. " High gas prices and a threat- ened gasoline shortage, however, were not enough to keep high school students from invading the campus for summer camps ranging from cheerleading and basketball to computers and leadership. These camps gave high school students insight to college life before actual enroll- ment. " It was good to see what college was like, " said Sonja Bolton, a cheerleader from Fair- continued DEWITT FORRESTER BREAKS up the road on the street leading to the High Rise Complex from College Drive Forrester and four other University students built anc repaired campus roadways throughout the summer SUMMER SCHOOL 21 The dog days of summer that never were continued fax. " We learned that getting along with each other was something we all had to do. Responsibility became something you had to accept or you would not have made it. " Weather conditions fluctuated from one extreme to the other. Temperatures were in the high 90s all summer, but they dropped in minutes when stormy weather approached. A number of torna- does and severe thunderstorms plagued northwest Missouri. Ex- tensive damage was reported on campus, as high winds stripped between 12,000 and 15,000 square feet of roofing from the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. The destruction permitted torrents of water to flood the stage area. Another sign of the storm ' s destruction was apparent the morning after the July 15 storm. Students found their cars packed with hail dents and shattered windshields. In one 14-car row east of the High Rise Complex, 13 cars suffered window damage. Damage was estimated at $150 to $250 per car, according to Earl Brailey, former director of secu- rity. " I was surprised when I saw how bad the damage was and was pretty worried when ! found how much it would cost to get the window fixed, " Laura Yelton said. The storms seemed minor, however, compared to the fire that swept through the Administration Building July 24. Officials said that more than 60 percent of the building was destroyed while the personal losses of faculty and students ran deeper than mone- tary value alone. Since 60 to 65 percent of the Ad Building housed academic areas and offices, new 22 SUMMER SCHOOL locations were found not only for the summer sessions but for the fall semester as well. Less than 48 hours after the fire struck the building. Gov. Joseph Teasdale toure d the building with President B.D. Owens and his staff. At this time, the governor pledged to help obtain $20,000 in emergency state funds to be used for planning restoration of the building. The money was appro- priated later by the General Assembly. Before the fire, Teasdale had worked to obtain money for renovation of Lamkin Gym- nasium. A bill was finally signed that included $14 million for renovation of the gym and construction of a new swimming pool. The new plan also included a tartan running track around the basketball court and several energy-conserving measures. " After 15 years of waiting, we are delighted that we are going to renovate Lamkin Gym and build a new swimming pool, " Owens said. " A tremendous amount of effort and energy went into finally getting this passed. " Even though Teasdale came through with funds for the renovation of the gym and the Ad Building, he was not always sympathetic to the University ' s needs. Teasdale cut more than $6.4 million to all senior institu- tions of higher education and state aid to junior colleges. He cut the University ' s budget to $9,272 million from the $9,467 million recommended by the Missouri Legislature. " We are disappointed because we worked so hard with the legislature to get the budget where it was before the veto, " said Don Henry, University treasurer. Students were assured that the budget cut would not jeopardize the academic mission of the institution. " We will maintain the quality level of education that we now have, " Henry said. After a summer populated with major news headlines, students searched for the lighter side of school. For the most part, students relied on area movies and campus drama for their main source of entertainment. The theater department presented " Phatry, " an assemblage of short acting scenes that dealt with the family unit. " I think the plays were fantastic this summer, " Jack Masters said. " Our theater department does a very professional job with what they have to work with. " A number of specialized ex- hibits passed through campus. One of these was the works and experiences of Albert Einstein which celebrated his 100th birth- day. When outside entertainment was not to be found, students generated ideas from their own resources. Parties, picnics, holi- day celebrations and special events such as the Fourth of July Mud-a-thon, sponsored by the Maryville Jaycees, fell into place on everyone ' s social calendar. " Even though there weren ' t a lot of people here, there was always something happening to take our minds off studying for awhile, " Sherrie Christian said. Whether the campus made national or local news with a fire, budget cuts, gas shortages and plays, it all added up to a summer to remember. —Carol Crum Cindy Sedler DURING A SIBLING rivalry scone, Mar Wcirburton and Phvllis Barr talk about a relative During the summer, the theater department presented " Phatry, " " The EJold Soprano " and " The Lesson " Davp Ciespke A MEDIEVAL BATTLE is re- enacted between two Society for Creative Anachronism members.

Burning memories ii he University was devastated and uprooted after raging flames and smoke destroyed 60 percent of the Administration Building July 24. Roger Strieker, Maryville Pub- lic Safety director, said his department received a call for assistance at 8:14 p.m., 16 minutes after the fire was reported to campus security. The delay in action was the root of controversy surrounding the Uni- versity administration and state officials. " We know there was a clock delay of 16 minutes, " Tom Behrendson, state fire marshal, said at an emergency Board of Regents meeting. " Now generally a 16-minute delay is a very crucial delay, and I want you to be aware of that. " Later the delay proved to be of little consequence because, ac- PRESIDENT B D OWENS and Bob Henry get a report from a University employee during the first stages of the fire. The fire started on the fourth floor of the building. VOLUNTEER FIREMEN MOVE A firehose during the Administration Building fire. Firemen came from several surrounding communities to help fight the blaze. cording to Behrendson, the fire broke out at least two or three hours before smoke was first observed by University personnel. By the time the fire was reported to the Public Safety Department, the smoke had attracted a small crowd. In the dying daylight, students and University employees watched helplessly as smoke rolled off the roof and flames began to shoot out fourth floor windows. The crowd grew, and students were recruited to help remove documents and equipment from the burning building. According to President B.D. Owens, most of the materials, tapes and records were removed except for the most recently pre-registered students ' papers that had not yet been processed. Because the fire had been continued FIRE 25 Burning memories continued burning for several hours before they arrived, firemen were al- ready fighting a seemingly losing battle. However, poor water pressure, rusted and mud-caked hydrants and freshly-laid sod further hindered their progress. The first truck to reach the scene got stuck in the sod, and administration, faculty and stu- dents worked together to push it out. But even with strong water pressure and hoses pointed toward the fourth floor, the fire raged on. " It was horrible, " said Jim MacNeil, a volunteer firefighter. " All these people were standing around watching the roof collapse and there I was in my fire uniform watching it burn along with everyone else. Our hoses just wouldn ' t reach. " Strieker estimated 150 people helped fight the fire. Units were called in from St. Joseph and other surrounding fire depart- ments. MacNeil said that when the firefighters were allowed to go into the building to battle the blaze, he could see some progress. He and the rest of the " Carole Patter- volunteers stayed and fought the fire all night. " The next morning we could see where we ' d been, " he said. " All night there had been so much smoke that we couldn ' t see in front of our faces. But in the light, 1 couldn ' t get over the steel girders on the stairway-they were twisted like pretzels. " Nearly everyone on campus and hundreds from the town gathered at safe distances to watch in horror as more and more of the building crumbled. To most, it was an emotional experience. " It was kind of like seeing your own house burn, " said Kurt Hamilton. " It ' s odd how you tend to take a building like that for granted, " said Mike Sayers. " It was a symbol of a part of my life, and it was going up in smoke. " Crowd control caused some problems. However, according to Earl Brailey, former director of security, " The spectators stayed out of the way pretty well. " Owens was on the scene throughout the fire. " We ' re lucky because we had a good backup system in case of fire in the Administration Building, " he said. " That way we were able to save the most important docu- ments and records because they were kept in bank vaults, and everything was removed system- atically when the fire began. " Total damage estimates were $14 to $16 million. Key academic departments that sustained dam- age were broadcasting, agricul- ture, home economics, speech pathology and theater.

" A government official said there was adequate legislation for emergency situ- RICHT BEFORE HE toured the damaged Ad Building, Gov Joseph Teasdale held a press conference. During it he said h e would do all he could to get the University the money it needed to repair the structure ations and that he could cut down on some red tape if necessary. " But Henry ' s optimistic state- ment backfired when Gov. Joseph Teasdale said he had never heard of such a thing and that actually there was no insurance on the structure of the building, only on some of its contents. Less than 48 hours after the fire, Teasdale toured the building with Owens, his staff and the local media. At this time the governor pledged to help obtain $20,000 in emergency state funds for the University to plan repairs. Teas- dale came through with his promise when the leaders of the legislature agreed to appropriate the $20,000 in late July. Teasdale said the rest of the funds would have to be appro- priated by the 1980 Missouri General Assembly, which opened its session in January. " I want everything studied so we won ' t have a year or two delay in remedying this situation. We can cut through the red tape by getting me involved, " Teasdale said. While Teasdale was looking for dollars, Behrendson and Strieker were looking for evidence. After a thorough investigation, the source of the fire was pinpointed in a 20- to 25-foot area above the speech department ' s audio testing lab- oratory. Both men thought the fire started on the fourth floor above a false ceiling. However, the " exact continued PRESIDENT B.D OWENS shows Gov Joseph Teasdale the damage the fire caused, Teasdale promised to help get $20,000 in emergency state funds for the University. -Dave Cieseke •-i5£i i » THE STATUE OF Abraham Lincoln stands unharmed at the entrance to the Frank Deerwester Theater.

FIRE 29 Burning memories continued origin of the fire was impossible to determine because the fire com pletely destroyed the area of the suspected source, " Behrendson and Strieker reported. The initial blame, according to reports, lay with electrical failure. Two electrical circuit breakers were found tripped, which sug- gested an electrical circuit failure near the sewing room of the theater department on fourth floor. There was also a tripped circuit breaker in the fire alarm panel, which supported the theory that the fire broke out in the audio testing area. Behrendson also said the first firemen on the scene smelled an odor directly con- nected with the burning of wire. Later, after the fire had died and investigations were well underway, a witness reported to the Public Safety Department that he had spotted smoke as early as 6 p.m. Fire may also have spread more rapidly because the preburning and a hole in the fire wall between the fourth floor west wing and the area above the ceilings of the auditorium spread the fire into the upper reaches of the auditorium before the firefighters responded. Natural drafting through the attic area of the building carried smoke and fire, which resulted in fire dropping into the radio and television studios. Acoustical in- sulation used in the broadcasting areas trapped the heat and helped create the heavy damage in those areas. Following the disaster, the University strived to carry on normal classroom and office routines. A $13.8 million plan was submitted to the Missouri General Assembly which would begin the long reconstruction process. Rebuilding had not been finalized, but there was some 30 FIRE question as to whether rebuilding the entire building inside and out would be wise. " I would like to see the building restored architecturally, " Owens said. " I think it is an historical structure for this area and should definitely be rebuilt at least in the architectural sense. The extensive damage inside, however, may prevent the rebuilding of some of the functional aspects. " However, Owens said it may be quite some time before the entire Administration Building will be used. " Just from past experience, 1 would venture a guess at close to two or three years before it would be completely functional, " Owens said. This rebuilding process was not gradual for the University. It actually began while flames were still engulfing the building. " From the moment the fire started we were working and making plans, " Owens said. " We threw records and documents out of the windows and were able to save the majority of them. We were up all night making decisions that could not wait. " Though the loss was tremen- dous, the University was anything but crippled by the disaster. Classes began on schedule and just as the fire came and went, so did the fall and spring semesters. -Cindy Sedler Bob Power Carol Crum USING A CRANE, workmen remove steel griders from the west wing.

J Back home again Vacations ended, summer jobs ceased and an overall back-to-the- grind attitude prevailed as stu- dents packed their gear and headed for the Northwest campus. Halter tops and shorts were discarded for sweaters and slacks, and tennis rackets and frisbies exchanged for books and sche- dules of upcoming classes. The student body increased as some students chose to quit summer jobs and finish school and others chose school for the first time with career goals in mind. " The major increase was in the freshman enrollment, " said Dr. Phil Hayes, registrar. " ! think the recruiting effort is what reflects the major rise in the student body increase. There are up to 130-140 additional first-time freshmen this year. " A total of 4,401 students were enrolled, an increase from the 4,207 students enrolled the previous year. The increased enrollment was followed by a surge in dorm residency. " We started with 2,215 stu- dents occupying the dorms, " said Bruce Wake, director of housing. " That ' s an increase of 240 students-quite an increase. " Wake emphasized that the increase in dorm residency was beneficial to the housing budget.

The Administration Building fire, along with the changes because of the fire, brought about the first major adjustments to be made by administration officials, as well as students. Offices and classes had to be moved, and many students moving in had to adjust to a campus without the historical building. " I think the staff I worked with did a very good job with the changes that had to be made, " said Hayes. " Everything was saved so it was just a matter of collecting everything and getting things put back in order in a very short time. " ■■Franit W Mercer After seeing the charred build- ing, many students became apprehensive about registration, classes and the hardships that would have to be endured. " Registration is such a drag anyway, I just wondered how we were going to be able to survive the confusion of it now, " said Kathy Fountain, head RA in Roberta Hall.

" Movie Greats " was the theme of Homecoming Week and like any Hollywood creation, was filled with fancy sets, dedicated per- formers and thrill-packed adven- tures. All three of these culminated Tuesday through Friday in the Charles Johnson Theater. The. annual variety show featured skits which parodied some familiar movies and did not hesitate to satirize University officials and the Bearcats.

HOMECOMING 41 Girls, lock your doors In years past, dormitory atmos- pheres were informal enough for unlocked doors, traipsing around in close to nothing after hours and hiding keys outside of doors. But that has all changed, especially for the women. Repeated reports of male harrassment in the women ' s residence halls created an air of fear and apprehension. Most of the problems with harrassment occurred in the Hudson-Perrin- Roberta Complex, though the high rises suffered their share of unpleasant encounters. Reports said that girls heard door knobs jiggling in the middle of the night and reported numerous items missing. Some reported being threatened by males after hours. " The girls are uneasy, " said Sharon Taegel, Hudson Hall RA. " We don ' t know for sure what ' s happening to the missing items. " One RA who tried to keep two men from roaming the dormitory halls said she was told that if she did not change her attitude they would " beat her red. " The harrassment reports came to an abrupt halt when two men were apprehended by Maryville police from Millikan Hall. Even though girls felt relieved, no longer were their doors left unlocked, and no longer did they make evening trips across campus alone. An escort policy, developed by Dr. John Mees, vice president for student development, Director of Housing Bruce Wake and the hall directors, was prompted by the harrassments. It was intended to improve the safety of the women residents. " It ' s for more safety in the dorms and so that those in the dorms will have a purpose for being there, " said Hudson Hall Director Nancy VanDyke J EFF BARNETT SHOOTS a game of pool in the main lounge of DIeterich Hall Dieterlch had two pool tables in its lounge. 42 DORM LIFE Men entering the dorms had to go to the front desk and have a deskworker call the resident he wished to see. The resident then had to go to the desk and escort her visitor through the hall. Revisions for the escort policy were under consideration, how- ever, which would limit the escort policy to certain hours in the evening. Even though the escort policy was made to benefit the women, some had complaints. " Not too many people around here like it, " said Debbie Rush. " It was very inconvenient. There were guys still around and if they were caught they were just warned. " The unexpected hassles also plagued dorm living. Thirty men and seven women were temporar- ily housed in Wilson and Roberta Halls respectively because of lack of space. But after 53 housing contracts were cancelled, the 37 students moved to permanent housing. only had to stay in Wilson one night, " said Ron Ballard. " I really didn ' t have any problems. I requested a room and a roommate and I moved in the next day. " Dorm life was not all incon- venience and apprehension, how- ever. The well-known laundry lines, roommate squabbles and getting locked out of dorms still prevailed, as did the floor parties, getting reacquainted with old friends and making new ones.

Photographer Steve Hawks exposed this photo for five minutes. - 3 Wl The setting sun bowed out behind the high rises and streethghts; headlights and class- room lights flickered on, sig- nalling the approach of campus after dark The dark hours on cam pus greatly contrasted with the daylight hours, instead of con- versation from all directions, rarely a voice was heard Parking lots filled with faculty, staff and off-campus students ' cars during the day were nearly empty by evening. " It is such a switch being around campus at night, " Suzie Collins said. " You hardly ever see any people and when you do, nobody speaks. It ' s funny. You ' ll speak to a stranger in the daylight, but there is something distrusting about the dark. " For many, the night generated a feeling of serenity. It was night- time when thoughts ran deep and many students accomplished a lot of mental work. " Even though I don ' t usually like to go around campus by myself, it did make things seem different, " said Marcie Warm. " If I have something on my mind, it is easier to sort things out and see things in a proper perspective without all of the people and the noise you hear in the daytime. " Once in awhile, shades of daytime campus life sneaked into the evening calm when students bustled to and from their night classes. The major downfall of a night class was having to walk home in the dark, often alone. " I always have somebody take me to and pick me up from my night class, " said Dusty O ' Neil. " The only lights are in the parking lots and you can ' t see anything. Even if you hear something, there is no way you can see what or who it is. " " Missouri ' s most beautiful campus " also boasted this claim after the sun had gone down. The lighted bell tower, often in varied colors, could be seen all over campus and served as the central meeting spot for many a midnight rendezvous. The high rise com- plex stood out against the black sky and could be seen from town and country roads off campus. " I think that on a nice night the campus is just as pretty as it is in the day, " Warm said. Though the night may have represented serenity and beauty, there remained an air of mystery and eeriness in the Gothic atmosphere on campus. The chilly air rustled through the trees and made the midnight stroller ' s imagination run wild. For some, the quiet was more foreboding than reassuring. " It ' s too quiet at night and too dark. It may be calm, but it is more spooky than calm, " O ' Neil said. Safety became uppermost in the back of everyone ' s minds after numerous reports and rumors of rape and assault. These dras- tically decreased the number of evening walkers and joggers. What used to be one of the safest campuses around evolved into one in which danger appeared to be lurking, though few actual mis- haps were reported. Campus security, realizing the potential hazards, formed an escort service so students would no longer have to walk alone at night. James Cremer, newly- appointed campus safety director, developed the free service that was available to anyone on campus as long as some advance notice was given. " Those wanting to be escorted must contact our department five to 10 minutes before leaving, " Cremer said. " Occasionally we may be tied up on a case when you call, but our dispatcher will either tell you to call back, or he ' ll tell you an escort will be there in X number of minutes. " Cremer stressed that the program was not a taxi service. " There may be someone there to walk with you, or else we ' ll use a vehicle, " he said. " I don ' t want the escort service to become a big deal-l just want it to become a part of the program at NWMSU. " -Cindy Sedler CAMPUS AFTER DARK 45 Getting away from it all Life off campus was the option available for students who did not want to be reminded of school whenever they looked out the window. While the administration felt on-campus living enhanced the college experience, many individuals desired the independ- ence of living away from the crowd. Maryville offered an abundance of housing for students, ranging from one-room sleeping quarters, apartment houses, trailer courts and apartment complexes to houses. Monthly rent for these ran from $40 to $300, depending on size, condition and location. Freedom from rules and regula- tions was a major reason students chose to move out of the dormitories, independence in- creased in importance as students got away from home. " One of the main reasons I enjoy it is because I don ' t have to have guys out of the house by midnight, " said Becky Stevens. Then there was the problem of room in the dormitories. With hundreds of students living in one building, everything was shared, and privacy was almost non- existent. " There ' s more freedom, it ' s quieter and I like to have my own space, " said Kelly Grant. " I just didn ' t have it in the dorm " Some students saw enough of school when they were in classes all day. Off-campus living pro- vided an ideal way to get away from it all. " It feels good to get away from school after classes, and it ' s more fun to relax in your own place, " said Marianne McGuff. Another important reason for living away from school was marriage. Since the extinction of the trailers in College Park, the University has made no provisions for married students and their children. --Nicholas Carlson " College is an expensive venture, especially with a family to consider, and living off campus adds to the problems and responsibilities, " said Joy Harms. Despite all the advantages to living off campus, there were some drawbacks. The usual problems faced students each year-dishonest landlords, wash- ing dishes and making it to class. Then there was the nationwide problem of a fuel shortage. With gas prices at the dollar-a-gallon mark, transportation became a problem. Utility bills increased and the price of fuel oil nearly doubled. " The price and availability of fuel determines everything you do as an off-campus student, " said Jerry Fish. " You literally can ' t move without it. It affects transportation, heating, cooking and even watching TV. " As the year went by, students learned that being independent was not all fun and games. Things they had taken for granted at home became grim realities. Mom was not there to clean up, cook and wash dishes; Dad was not there to pay any unexpected bills that came up; there were no RAs to complain to; and for married students, there was no dorm to move back into for relief. Despite the disadvantages, these students chose off-campus living as their way of experiencing the college year and making one more step toward independence. —Mike Crum LISA WILSON TYPES up a news story for KDLX.

OFF-CAMPUS LIFE 47 ■Carole Patterson ■■Carole Patterson 48 THEATER DURING " THE RIVALS, " Gary Hendrix and Eva Nuno plan out a secret in the 18th century comedy. Despite losing two theaters to fire, the show went on in the fall KEVIN CORDRAY AND Susan Kavanaugh act out a scene as the Malaprops in " The Rivals, " This play was the theater department ' s first fall effort. I oor [ ilestro The show must go on No department was hit harder by the summer ' s disasters than theater. Not only were both theaters in the Administration Building destroyed by fire, but the Charles Johnson Theater in the Fine Arts Building was water damaged when part of the roof blew off during a storm. With virtually everything gone except some costumes, and high hopes for the soon-to-be-re- modeled Frank Deerwester Thea- ter up in smoke, the theater department was without a home. Charles Johnson Theater was usable despite a water-damaged floor and curtains, but the auditorium was used by Univer- sity singing groups and the Performing Arts and Lecture series. Most major theater pro- ductions dominated any auditor- ium for weeks straight, day and night, so sharing it would be a problem. Still, the show went on. Just two weeks after the fire, the theater department presented two one-act plays in Charles Johnson " The Bald Soprano " and " The Lesson, " both written by absurd- ist playwright Eugene lonesco, went off as planned despite the loss of costumes and props. " The costumes had been pulled from the wardrobe and were burned in the fire, " said Theophil Ross, director. " The costumes we used instead were more modern than the fifties-style dress we had originally planned to use. All our props and makeup were destroyed, so we made do with what we could find. Also, people donated a lot of things. " Earlier in the season, student- directed one acts were also presented somewhere other than Ad Building ' s auditorium or Little Theater. Because of the construc- tion taking place in the theaters, the plays were held in the rooms surrounding the Little Theater on the Ad Building ' s first floor. The plays were a final class project for Dr. Charles Schultz ' , chairman of the theater depart- ment, directing students. Seven plays were presented the week before finals in the spring. Another late-spring production was " Dandelion Wine, " a read- ers ' theater. Held in the Spanish Den, the collection of oral interpretation was taken from a play written by Ray Bradbury. During the summer, drama students took the production on the road for a week-long tour of high schools in Iowa and Nebraska around the Omaha-Council Bluffs area. " Phatry, " an assemblage of short acting scenes dealing with different aspects of the family unit, was the department ' s first summer production in the Charles Johnson Theater. Directed and produced as a special topics class in theater education, the show was experimental. Two high school sophomores joined four University students in order for education majors to have hands- on experience in teaching acting, stagecraft and other aspects of theater to high schoolers. continued HAL WEBB TAKES THE lead role in this scene of the readers ' theater presentation of " Dandelion Wine " that also featured Joel Dorr, Susan Kavanaugh and Kevin Brunner. The readers ' theater was performed in the Student Union Spanish Den THEATER 49 The show must go on continued By the beginning of the regular school year, the theater depart- ment was getting used to being a stranger in a strange land. So they got down to the business of producing " The Rivals, " their first fall effort. The 18th-century comedy clas- sic contained elaborate sets and costumes, but the overall feeling was that the play did not go over well, " I won ' t blame how the play came out on the fire, " said Mary Kay McDermott, assistant direct- or, " It did have something to do with it since we had to reorder everything and everyone had a hard time adjusting. But the real downfall of ' Rivals ' was too many new people and too many bad attitudes about the whole thing, " McDermott did say the play was a good show to start the season with while the period of adjust- ment was coming to an end. " Actually, the fire was a blessing in disguise, " said Mc- Dermott, " We ' re getting close to the music and art people and know what they ' re doing. It ' s helped unite the fine arts, and it should have happened at this University a long time ago, " Sharing Charles Johnson Thea- ter with music students and other performers did not have a negative effect on theater pro- ductions. Rather, it added a note of professionalism. " When you get out in the professional world, you have to rehearse wherever you can find space. In the Ad Building we got used to always practicing on the stage, but now we have to make do, " said McDermott. The department ' s second pro- duction, Tennessee Williams ' " Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, " proved to be a much greater success than " The Rivals. " Although it did not get to final judging, " Cat " was entered in the American College Theater Festi- val and won the outstanding lighting award. Not only lights, but all technical aspects of theater, including scene design, makeup and cos- tumes, improved this year with the addition of three technical specialists on the staff, " Hiring Ken Brown, Kenn Van-Dieren and Chandis Fischer is the best thing the department ' s ever done, " said McDermott. " Before now, too much technical responsibility has been placed on the students, and we were doing things we didn ' t really know how to do. Now the work load is divided up, and everything is just top-notch quality, " continued CAPTAIN JACK ABSOLUTE (Dave Shearer) and Bob Acres (Scott Tennent) await the return of the captain ' s father.

Dave Cifseke !t to final red in the Iter Festi- ini The show must go on continued Even with the addition of technical experts to the theater staff, the students got free rein in the production of Sophocles ' Creek tragedy, " Antigone. " Although the play was directed by Ross, technical areas were divided up among students, who worked with Ross in achieving the final outcome. Caria Scovill, costume design- er, said the project was experi- mental. " Since ' Antigone ' is a Greek tragedy, we didn ' t expect people to flock to see it, " said Scovill. " But the design students in the theater department were interest- ed in it because it was Greek. We got so hyped up about the design that Mr. Ross gave us the okay to do it ourselves. Anyone interested in costuming, scene design, lighting or directing the chorus signed up and he decided who to put in charge. It was nice on his part to trust us with the responsibility. " Over half a decade had passed since a student had control over scene design or costuming. " Costuming class was only offered every three years or so, so that ' s probably part of why students haven ' t been doing it, " said Scovill. " Also, when David Shestak was teaching here, he was so talented that he just did it. Nobody ever questioned it. " Dale Dupre broke the Univer- sity out of its six-year pattern when she designed " Antigone ' s " set, choosing a classic formal style often used in the Creek theater. " There ' s a lot involved in scene design, " said Dupre. " In theory, the designer reads the play and comes up with ideas. I made an appointment with the director and talked to him about concepts and colors, showing him the thumb- nail sketches I had drawn. After the design was finalized, I did a rendering, which is a painted picture of what the set will look like, including paint colors. A floor plan is also drawn up, and from these the set is built. " Unique to Creek theater is the chorus. The eight-member " An- tigone " chorus was directed by Dussie Mackey. " I had to do a lot of research to see what the Creek chorus was like, " said Mackey. " It ' s a mixture of music and choreog- raphy. It ' s not like dancing in the modern sense, but like planned moves in unison. " Mackey said following the pattern of Creek choreography, she made up all the dances herself. " The Creeks used sharp turns, right angles and square moves rather than circular ones, " she said. Each of the student directors was pleased with the outcome of the areas of specialization in " Antigone, " but agreed it was a lot of responsibility. " I had never directed before, " said Mackey, " and I was surprised how much power was involved. There were eight people performing up there, and if any one of them made a mistake it was ultimately my fault because I didn ' t train them right. However, they all did a really nice job. " Dupre explained that her floor plan was drawn incorrectly and four feet had to be removed from the middle of the set. " The overall effect was the same, " she said, " but when it didn ' t fit it created a real problem. " Scovill was at a disadvantage in making sure that the costumes were done to her specifications because she student-taught in Kansas City third block when the play was being produced.

Forty-four couples started the third annual marathon and 38 completed the 26 hours of dancing. Steve Carpenter, radio personality from KKJO in St. Joseph, emceed throughout the 26 hours. Sarah Sheets, one of the coordinators of the marathon, said the money would go directly to the association in Kansas C ity when pledges were collected. " The money made here will stay in Missouri and will go toward wheelchairs and other therapeutic things, " said Sheets. Compared to last year, 1979 results were much better, accord- ing to Sheets, who was one of the coordinators then as well. ' ' Last year more than half of the dancers dropped out before the completion of the 25 hours, " Sheets said. " There was also quite a bit more money pledged this year than last year. " Few people were aware of the amount of preparation that went into the production of the dance marathon. " I was fortunate enough to be asked to attend the national convention in Phoenix where more than 500 delegates gathered. There were a lot of workshops, and we got to meet Jerry Lewis DURING A BREAK in the early hours of the marathon, Billy Arnold wraps Susan Flasher ' s ankle. The dancers raised $7,78.5 for muscular dystrophy. WHEN DISCO BECAME BORING during the second day of the marathon, one couple chose to try a modernized tango and the national poster child, which was a really great exper- ience, " Sheets said. Committees worked several months in advance to see that the marathon went as planned. Posters were made, sponsors were found, plans were made for the dancers to have refreshments. The annual casino night was held at the same time as the dance. It was difficult for some of the dancers to see the good will and benefit from the long hours. But after it was all over, it was a little harder to remember the agony of it all. " The first two hours and the last hours were fine, " said Deena Burnham. " But the other 22 hours were pure hell. " The dancers were not expected to eat standing up and were not expected to go without rest or cleaning up. " We had to be humane about the whole thing. We gave them time to shower and change their shoes, and they ate however they chose, " Sheets said. There were also pillows and mattresses available for quick naps during 10-minute breaks every hour, and extra time was allowed for meals. Tired muscles, blistered feet and weary bodies either plugged on to complete the 26 hours or dropped out because they just could not stand it. " 1 never thought that I could finish the marathon, so I was at least pleased that I did that, " Burnham said. " I would think twice before doing it again though.

The last I It was a gala affair, but certain events may make the eighth annual Bohlken Awards Film Festival the last one. At the end of the academic year, Rob Craig, director of the awards, will be leaving for Central Michigan State University. This may cause the end of the Bohlken Awards. " 1 would hate to see it end myself, " Craig said. " There are loads of people who would be able to carry on . " Dr. Robert Bohlken, chairman of the Division of Communica- tions, for whom the awards were named, said that although it appeared that the awards would be back next year, they probably would not be the Bohlken Awards as the broadcasting department had come to know them. " Because of Mr. Craig ' s leaving, the awards will probably undergo many changes, " Bohlken said. Although a damper was placed on the awards because of this, the eighth annua! affair went off very well, according to Craig. " It came off very well this year, " he said. " You always worry about people showing up, and the weather being as bad as it was didn ' t help us in that matter. " Heavy snow hit the University and the Maryville area the night of the show and as a result, several judges were not able to attend. " We had to find three judges at the last minute, " Craig said. " And then with about 15 minutes to go before show time, there were only a handful of people there. Then all of a sudden they all started to show up and we had a packed house. I was surprised that all those people showed up despite the weather. " According to Craig, the events that led up to the film festival were time consuming and a lot of work.

" We decided to keep all the olio acts together in the speech department this year, " Craig said During Christmas break, a group consisting of Dr. Carrol Fry, Leo Kivijarv, Robert Bellamy and Craig ' s wife, Linda, got together and chose the five finalists for the film festival. The films were chosen from those that received an " A " , " A- " or " B + " in the final project for cinematog- raphy, a course taught by Craig. After this, it was just a matter of " bringing all the pieces together for awards night, " said Craig. Equipment was set up in ROB CRAIC SINGS " Winchester Cathe- dral " during rehearsal the Horace Mann Theater, and a theme of nostalgia was decided on. Judges were lined up and the program was determined. " We did more of a production number this year than we have done in years past, " Craig said. " When we first started the awards, it was in the middle of summer in a classroom in the Administration Building. We just kept building up the idea of doing things between films until we reached the point where we are now . ' ' Despite all the acts, the Bohlken Awards was known for determining the best film of the year made by a University student. This year that honor went to Michelle Brekke for her film. " The Nerd Goes to College. " " It was an honor and a surprise to win, " Brekke said. " The film just started out as a class project, and then things started happening so fast I didn ' t have time to think about it. " But Brekke did admit that while she was doing the film for Craig ' s course, she was thinking about the possibility of being a finalist. " The Bohlken Awards are always in the back of your mind, " she said.

It started many years ago, continued through this year and shall go on for many years to come. There are no winners or losers, no good guys or bad guys ' and no weapons or casualties. This war was com- posed of verbal jokes and ridicule, and the opponents were Iowa students against Missouri stu- dents " There ' s a lot of teasing going on, " Grant Evans said. " It ' s a big insulting match, " Keith Ferguson said. " Everything 58 IOWA VS. MISSOURI that is done is verbal. " This verbal war between Iowa and Missouri could be attributed to many sources, but a primary factor was the dominance and increase by both states. In the 1950-51 school year, out of a total enrollment of 859, 200 were from Iowa and 585 from Missouri. For the 1978-79 school year, out of 3,448 undergraduate students living on campus, 2,109 were from Missouri and 1,013 from Iowa. Even with their dominance, the enrollment of both states contin- ued to increase with Iowa leading the way. " Missouri has been increasing at a slower rate than Iowa, " said James Coff, assistant director of admissions. " We started recruiting in Iowa in 1975, and since then there ' s been an increase in applications and enrollment. " Many Iowa students agreed on the reason Iowa enrollment has steadily increased. " It ' s cheap and close to home, " Dave Butler said. " There are no small, state- supported universities in Iowa, " said Charles Veatch, director of " We admissions, " and our cost is another reason Were a good small state university, and we have a good reputation in Iowa. " Most students agreed the verbal war was basically limited to jokes and ridicule, and everyone seemed to have encountered it at one time or another " People are a big factor, " Jim Ingram said. " It ' s mostly just standing jokes. " " You can get a bunch of people together and sooner or later the talk will turn to Iowa versus Missouri, " Ferguson said. " They get pretty serious sometimes. " Nancy Bean explained a ritual she became accustomed to as a neighbor from the north. " When you ' re making friends and they find out you ' re from Iowa, it ' s always, ' Oh, you ' re an lowe- gian. " ' Various generalizations could be made about the war between the states, but probably the most obvious was that the teasing was mor e common among men than women. " Sometimes I hear it from girls, but mostly from guys, " Miriam Heilman said. " It really doesn ' t matter to the girls, " Bean said. Another generalization was that the Iowa versus Missouri teasing was done more during the freshman year. " I mainly heard it when I was making new friends, " Tammy Hayward said. " When you ' re a freshman you hear it more than now, " Pam Crawford said. " When you get older, it doesn ' t seem as important. " One generalization shared by a few students was the detection of an accent difference between Iowa and Missouri students. " Some Missourians have a southern-type accent, " Andrea Paulsen said Susi Collins said she felt the lowans were the same as Missourians except for their accent, while Mary Kay McDer- mott said, " The lowans tend to have a more northern accent. " The jokes and ridicule from both states were all in fun, but were the Iowa students any more defensive about being the visitors in the Iowa-Missouri war? " They don ' t seem any more defensive about Iowa than we are about Missouri, " Kelly Martin said. " The people from Iowa are more aggressive, " Butler said. " We kind of have to attack the Missouri people. " Jay Carlson said lowans are a little more defensive but that the people from Missouri had greater opportunity. " Being from Iowa puts you on the defensive naturally, " he said. " When lowans leave home, they want to keep their pride. Missourians are very lucky because they have more oppor- tunities to attend schools like this, and lowans don ' t. " Although the Iowa versus Missouri war was basically confined to friendships and personal meetings, it also leaked into sports, especially women ' s basketball. Since the women ' s style of play was different in Iowa where six participated instead of five, Iowa players on the Bearkitten team had to adapt to a new style. Both Iowa and Missouri women felt it wasn ' t much of a problem, although they agreed there was a lot of kidding about the state differences. " My freshman year it was tough to get used to, especially on defense, " Jodi Giles said. " We kid each other on the team, but it ' s all in good fun. " Julie Chadwick said the Iowa women had enough background in basketball that they didn ' t have too much trouble adapting. She said that the Missouri women were helpful, but they joked around, too. " We tell the Iowa girls that they can ' t run up and down the court, " Chadwick said. " There are a lot of Iowa-Missouri jokes in girls ' basketball. " Besides sports, the war be- tween the states leaked into past history at the University. Goff, a 1971 graduate, recalled the intensity of the Iowa-Missouri rivalry. " The enrollment from both states around 1971 was about 50-50, and the Iowa students felt this was their school more or less, " he said. " The college book store sold shirts that said, ' Southwest Iowa State College- Maryville, Missouri. ' They were real popular, and even the Missouri students thought it was humorous. " Martha Cooper, a 1969 grad- uate, said she felt there was a rivalry on campus at that time, but that it was not between two states. " It was more city kids opposed to country kids, " Cooper said. " Many people put down the hicks, but there was kidding back and forth. " The same kidding that went on in the 60s and 70s continued in the 80s, and jokes about both states played a leading role. Everybody knew why the trees of Iowa and Missouri leaned the direction they did, but some students brought out some meth- ods to put their rival states in place. " Missouri is a suburb of Iowa, " Butler said. " I ' ve heard that the reason the football fields in Missouri are natural grass so the homecoming queens can have a place to graze, " Ferguson said. " We have Harry Truman and other famous people, but who ever came out of Iowa? " asked Don Reed. Steve Brightwell explained Mis- souri ' s new zoo. " We put a fence around Iowa, " he said. " I knew Missouri was the show-me state, " Ingram said, " but I didn ' t think I ' d have to show those Missourians four times. " All the jokes, humor and differences of opinion on campus proved that the war was in full swing; and although most stu- dents were soldiers for one side or the other, both sides agreed it was an enjoyable war they didn ' t with to give up. " There ' s a really good rivalry going on here, " Ingram said. " We ' re proud of our state and so are the Missourians. " --Tom Ibarra IOWA VS. MISSOURI 59 " Weather today under sunny skies is dry and Inumid with Q chance of sleet. . . rr The year ' s weather in retrospect was. . .boring. The summer wasn ' t so hot, and the winter almost never came. Fall didn ' t last long enough, and whoever remembered spring anyway? Except for the tornado. Oh, and what about the freak October snowstorm? Hey, maybe the weather wasn ' t boring. Mostly it was unpredictable. Spring blew in gutsy and gusty, scaring the pants off Maryville and leveling nearby towns. Braddyville, a small town just across the Iowa border, was hit hard by the early spring twister. However, the rest of the season was sprinkled with watches and warnings, high winds and rain, but nothing really devastating. And, as usual, the cool, high- spirited days of spring were a too-short transition between the icicles and the heatwaves. Summer was accompanied by a constant drip-drip-drip of rain and humidity. Someone once said, " It ' s not the heat, it ' s the humidity. " Truer words were never spoken, and obviously, whoever said them was in Maryville at the time. So even though temperatures were mild, summer school was sweltering, as usual. Always clever, fall managed to hold off just long enough to keep the trees from becoming brilliant before it zapped the continued TWO STUDENTS TAKE advantage of the Bell Tower ' s shelter during a summer storm 60 WEATHER Wmir SOME STUDENTS tixik refiiRc from the lieat, Dorothy Oiambers ind olhors look advantage of the sunny days Sunbathers could often be seen behind Franken Hall siwking up the rays during the warm months.

The splendor of red and gold lasted maybe an hour and a half all told. So much for autumn. Or so we thought. Revving up for a chilly Homecoming, floats were built with numb fingers and chattering teeth But lo and behold, Homecoming day dawned warm and sunny, turning quickly to downright hot and sweaty. Fall fashions were shed as early as the parade, and by gametime, shorts were not uncommon The next day was hotter still. Topping the mercury at 90 degrees, it was almost like the return of summer. Oh, but what wicked, wicked tricks Mother Nature played! The very next day--not 24 hours after thongs and halters, mind you--a full-fledged blizzard dumped itself all over campus. The wind howled, the flak es were huge and cold-it was incredible. Maryville ' s taste of Old Man Winter was so surprising that it was almost like an adventure- summer one day, winter the next. Something for everyone-how delightful! That ' s rubbish, of course. For soon cold air set in for real and everyone said goodbye frisbees, hello nose mittens. The winter was odd, however. Records were set first one day for the all-time high and the next day for all-time low. Six above was a pain, but a mellow 60 degrees 12 hours later seemed kind of nice. Strange, but nice. Even into January, Maryville escaped the Alaska syndrome. Kansas City, the nearby source of weather info, set a record for latest date for measurable snowfall January 18, and even at that, the grass still peeked through. Finally, by the tail end of the month, winter straightened up and flew right. Cold and snow- what kind of self-respecting Maryville winter is without it? So as usual, students plowed and trudged and slipped and slid to classes and waited until spring. Providing, of course, they could recognize it. -Carole Patterson WEATHER 63 sted Religion was not for everybody, but one thing was for sure--it was there for the taking. In Maryville alone there were about 25 religious-oriented cen- ters and institutions. Campus groups were Christ ' s Way Inn, the Wesley Center, the Baptist Student Union and the Newman House. Christ ' s Way Inn housed seven male and female students. There were separate living quarters for the men and women along with their own kitchen facilities. Dave Rockey and his family, who have been involved with Christ ' s Way Inn five years, also lived in the house. Looking at past years, Rockey said he thought there was more apathy toward religion from students than five years ago. " Today, most students are in college to establish an economic well-being. A few years ago they were here to become a more philosophical being. Students are less concerned with the things religion deals with today. " On the other hand. Father Chuck Jones of the Catholic Newman House said there was an increase in campus religious interest. " That reflects a national kind of thing, " said Father Jones. " I think people are returning to a more straight-line religion and are presumably turning away from gurus and occult-type religions. " Newman House could house one or two students upstairs. As a group, the students of Newman House were involved in worship and supper on Sunday nights. They also had a Mass in the Student Union Den on Sunday mornings. One of the highlights for the group was their trip to Des Moines to see Pope John Paul II. Some students found that attending church did not fit into their college routines. " I have slacked off going to church since I ' ve been down here, but I still know God is there, " said Kris Fries. There were others who thought religion was not for them. Anne Burton did not think religion played a part in her life. " I view today ' s religions as we view pagan religions of the past, " Burton said. " It is a crutch man uses to explain the super- natural or the unknown. " Whether or not students be- lieved in it, religion was every- where. There were Bible studies, ministries and a vast array of other activities aimed at bringing students in closer contact with Cod. If students wanted it, they did not have far to look. -Bob Power Nicholas Carlson WHILE DAVE BENNETT leads them Wesley Communitv members sing along The Wesley Community is located at the entrance of campus. 64 RELIGION STUDENTS GET ON THE First Baptist Church bus in front of Franken Hall Besides attending campus religious groups, students also worshipped at local churches DURING A BAPTIST Student Union meeting, Tim DeClue plays a song The Baptist Student Union was one of the four religious organizations serving the Uni- versity.

Richey worked at Hy-Vee grocery store. Working one ' s way through school has been a problem that has plagued college students since the first college opened its doors. Trying to combine work with school is like holding two jobs or " moonlighting. " " I work eight hours a night five days a week, and that doesn ' t leave much time for studying, " said Eileen Yager, " but I have to work to make it through school. " The job is physically and emotionally draining, and by the time I get home, I don ' t feel much like studying, " said Yager. " Both places expect certain things, and it ' s hard to satisfy each one. Sometimes you have to choose priorities. " Other students ' grades suffered because of night jobs and early 66 JOBS morning classes. Most jobs are at night because students are in class during the day. " 1 miss a lot of morning classes because I don ' t get off work until 1:30 a.m., " said Julie G oodman. " I only work about 15 hours a week, but it is hard to study after working. A job definitely takes away from study time. " Some people don ' t mind work- ing and going to school, but they have bitter feelings toward students who get a " free ride. " " I think everyone should have to work when going to school, " said Debbie Adkins. " I disrespect anyone who doesn ' t contribute financially to his education. Working makes me appreciate and utilize what free time I have, and it ' s part of being a responsible person. " Working and going to college has both positive and negative aspects. Though the job may have made the student ' s grades suffer, the work may have better prepared him for accepting the responsibilities of life. For stu- dents with plenty of time to study and get good grades, there was still the chance of being poorly prepared for the working life ahead. Combining a job with school- work is a problem with no real solution. It ' s merely a way of life for some students seeking an education. — MikeCrum t " i» c J f. ig to college and (legatue] ; job may to grades SI have bettefl life.

" It ' s not like we drink all the time because we do positive things that don ' t " I don ' t think there ' s a serious drinking problem on campus. I drink probably four to five nights a week. " include drinking, such as raising money for Project Hope and doing skits for all the fraternities ' smokers. When we do drink, it ' s never supplied by the sorority; we have to bring our own. Some people choose not to drink. " Scott Pitts, Tau Kappa Epsilon, had a negative view of campus drinking. " Sororities and fraternities have been very irresponsible in handing the growing drinking problem within these organiza- tions. But we ' re going to do something about it. " Pitts ' major concern was that outsiders were abusing the fraternity and sorority drinking parties. " Anybody can get in and drink. Often a high school kid will get drunk and get picked up after going to one of our parties. Then when he gets in trouble, all the blame comes back to our fraternity, " said Pitts. Drinking alcohol is not merely confined to sororities and frater- nities. Nearly every weekend it is not unusual to find a private keg party where everyone can come and drink " Most of the parties I go to have a lot of booze, " said Lauri Podey. " I don ' t think there ' s any serious drinking problem with the students on campus. I drink probably four to five nights a week. When I drink I don ' t get rowdy or anything; I just get mellow. " Most students thought Missouri drinking laws were unfair. " It ' s not right that an 18- or 19-year-old can go out and fight for our country, but he can ' t go into one of old Uncle Sam ' s bars and order a beer, " said Pitts. " I ' m not condoning younger kids drinking. I ' m just saying 1 think that making 21 the legal drinking age is conflicting and needs to be held up to some of the other laws.

These students are moving to a community larger than they have ever experienced. Although most small town students would not classify Mary- ville as a metropolis, they do classify it as a city and a place with a lot more to offer than their home towns. But, like most Midwesterners, the small town person is attached to his home town and will stand up for rural America any day. The obvious question to a small town person is: " How did you survive growing up in such a secluded place? " Julie Hewitt, from Rosendale, population 150, said growing up in a small town was an experience she would never change. " Everyone is so close. It is like growing up in one big family, " said Hewitt. Although sometimes growing up in such an atmosphere could invade one ' s privacy, Hewitt agreed that for the most part, everyone was interested in help- ing each other. People who graduated from a class of 500 or 600 students probably never met all of their classmates. Kim Nelson, from Exira, Iowa, said knowing her entire class was great. With a graduating class of anywhere from 30-50 students, small town high schools were an experience to remember. " It was such a good feeling to be on first-name basis with all your high school classmates and having your entire class be your best friends, " said Nelson. For some it was hard to imagine what that would be like, but Nelson said it was a priceless memory. What about adjusting to college life after living in such a limited environment? City slickers ob- viously had to make an adjust- ment, but what about small town people? " Crowing up in a small town made it easier for me to meet people when I got to college, " said Hewitt. " After knowing everyone in my home town, I found it easy to introduce myself around to get to know other kids on campus. It wasn ' t like I was meeting a bunch of strangers. " Undoubtedly, it was difficult for some to adjust to the fact that sometimes the college environ- ment did not live up to the standards of home town life. But despite this fact, students made the necessary adjustments and proved that small town people could reshape their lives to fit into whatever environment needed. Overall, small town students discovered that the highlight of small town living was returning back home after a stay at college. " Everyone is interested in you when you go home. It is like you never left, " said Nelson. Whether they gathered at an old high school ballgame, a local bar or in the neighbors ' back yard, going home to small town America was a memorable experience for every- one involved. Coing home to a small town created news for cronies left behind. " Joe is coming home this weekend " can frequently be heard in the local post office, cafe or gas station during the week. That is what is rewarding to the small town student. " Coing home and finding that everyone is still genuinely inter- ested in your life makes moving away much easier, " said Nelson. -Bob Power SMALL TOWNS 71 . . . And trvind V ci Spine-chilling tales of the infamous campus ghosts of Roberta and Lillian have been drifting around for years. It seems everything unusual or unex- plained that happens at Roberta Hall or the Delta Chi house is blamed on the notorious appari- tions. The 33-room fraternity house at 219 W. Second Street was built by Ladencour Michau in 1890, ironically, the same year the Delta Chi Fraternity was founded in Ithaca, NY. After Michau died, his daughter, Lillian Townsend, continued to live in the house until her death. Now the facts begin to get distorted. Legend has it that Lillian laid in state in the parlor three days. Back then it was accepted practice to have wakes for the dead, at which time someone was to sit up with the body. According to legend, one man fell asleep during his shift and when he woke up, Lillian ' s body had disappeared. However, Thomas Carneal, assistant professor of history, who spends a lot of time digging into the history of old houses, said most of that story is myth. " It is not true that Lillian Townsend died in that house or that her body disappeared. In fact, she is buried at Ashland Mausoleum in St. Joseph, " Carneal said. But the facts did not seem to matter as an avalanche of bizarre ghost stories emerged. 72 GHOSTS " Three years ago there were four of us in the house-two upstairs and two downstairs, " said Ed Wisner, Delta Chi. " The two upstairs were in one room and were listening to the stereo, which was turned up loud because it was in another room. Well, all of a sudden, the volume turned down all by itself. There was no one else around who could have done it. " Wisner also related several incidents that happened to some Delta Chi graduates. One of these involved the Gold and Green Rooms on the second floor of the house. The two rooms are adjoined by wooden doors and are always kept shut. " Rod Whitlock was dozing on a couch in the Green Room when the sound of someone choking woke him up, " Wisner said. " When he ran into the Gold Room, his friend was being choked by the drapes which had been wrapped around his neck three or four times. When he was free, Whitlock saw a form race down the back exit steps. He chased the figure, but it just vanished. " And the list goes on, just as it does for Roberta. The facts surrounding the death of Roberta Steel are often lost among the many phantasmal accounts. On April 28, 1951, a train car of propane exploded in a flash flood of fire behind the women ' s dorm, injuring 30 people. Even though she was severely injured in the fire, Roberta returned to school. " Many people don ' t realize that her skin was healed, and she thought she was perfectly well, " said Maxine Goff, a close friend of Roberta ' s in college. " She did not die until a year and a half later in November 1952 from internal complications. " Most of the mysterious stories originate in the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. Roberta was an Alpha, and a series of unex- plained events have been chalked up to her restless spirit. One of the ghost-like phenome- na reported by several Roberta Hall residents is the sound of piano music filtering throughout the dorm, though there is no one sitting at the piano. " It usually happens really late at night, " said Ka ' Corca, Alpha. " But we have goi en some of us together and gone down to the lobby and to the chapter rooms and there is no one around. " Reports of an empty elevator taking off by itself are also common. " It ' s possible though that someone can push the buttons and then step out, I guess, " Corca said. " But it is still pretty creepy to hear it just take off. " One of the more disturbing incidents for the Alpha ' s concerns a memorial picture of Roberta that no one knew existed. " We were cleaning our chapter room one day, " said Susan Kraner, senior Alpha. " And all of a sudden a picture fell off a shelf !) 1 A form raced down the back steps and vanished Piano music filtered through the dorm, and no one was sitting at the piano that fas " ' way in the back. There is no way that it could have fallen by itself because there was no one around that area. So unless we have mice, which we have never seen, the picture fell on its own or something made it fall. " " We have also had radios change stations, and one of the really weird things was that we had an unplugged coffee pot perk, " Kraner said. For every believer there are non-believers, and even some of the believers are not wholly convinced of the existence of Lillian and Roberta. " It has almost become a joke around the annex that every little thing that happens is Roberta, " Corca said. " If a draft blows the door open, we just say, ' Come on in, Roberta. ' " Whether the belief is there or not, a certain amount of fear of the unknown haunts practically every- one connected with the Delta Chi house and Roberta Hall. " I won ' t stay in the house by myself, " Wisner said. " Some of the guys won ' t even go upstairs to go to bed alone. " " We won ' t go into the chapter room after seven or eight o ' clock at night, " Kraner said. " And some of the younger ones won ' t go down at all unless there are a lot of people. " Since no one can prove the presence of the ghosts, Coff said. what difference does it make if they are there or not? " I think that it is a bunch of nonsense, " Coff said. " But like I always tell people who ask me about her ghost, ' If you do talk to her, tell her to come by and talk to me because I would love to see her again. ' Roberta was one of the most delightful people you would ever want to know She had a lot of dry humor and knew how to enjoy life. If it is her ghost that is making these things happen, one thing is for sure. She is just playing around, because I know her and she could never be mean to anyone.

" School was rough at times for everyone, but for students with children the problems ran deeper. Most students with children thought it separated them from the majority of the other students and from University activities. " I have different priorities, " said Doug McNulty. " I ' m not interested in the same things. I ' m more interested in staying around the house playing with the kids than going to some of the other school functions. " " I feel like people sometimes say, ' Well, I don ' t want to get involved with her because she ' s married and has a whole bunch of kids, ' " said Robin Chesnut. Some students with families found it hard to attend school activities for other reasons. " I can ' t just pick up the kids and send them off to the babysitter five nights a week to get more involved with University functions, " said McNulty. Finding time to study was a major problem for student par- ents. " It depends on what the classes are, but I think I could get better grades if I just had classes and the rest of the time for studying, " said Chesnut. " I can ' t just run to the library whenever I want to. " " I have some trouble finding time to study, but I don ' t think my kids hurt my grade point any. I think grades have more to do with attitude than anything else, " said McNulty. Along with the problems of studying and fitting in with the other students, a student with a child had to work things out financially. " I ' m lucky because I have a veteran ' s check and a wife who works full time. However, we do cut down on buying more than we would if I wasn ' t in school, " said McNulty. " It ' s really hard when you ' re paying out $100 a week for a babysitter and bringing nothing back in, " said Chesnut. " 1 have to go to school one semester and then sit out and work one semester.

They try to relive the days of their youth in a short weekend. I get to relive those days every day. " But after spending at least four years to graduate from the University, why return for em- ployment? " The reason I came back was because I took a lot from Northwest, " said Vinnie Vaccaro, executive secretary of the Alumni Association. " While I was here I got an education and gained a lot of friendships and memories. I always felt 1 owed the University something. " " I think I came back because I had a feeling I should try to give my alma mater something back in return for my education, " said President B.D. Owens.

" 1 had helped plan for KXCV, the FM station, and when President (Robert) Foster asked me to stay on and help plan it, I jumped at the opportunity. No other institu- tion in the country would have offered me that kind of position, and I ' m grateful to the University for it. " " It was always my goal to come back to Northwest and do something, but I didn ' t really know what, " Vaccaro said ' When this position opened up, I applied and got the job. " After a while, Maryville became home and the University became more and more a part of the lives of alumni. " Maryville has become my home, " said Kathryn Murphy, librarian. " After a while you begin to develop ties to the University and its people " " The ties at your alma mater are more deeply engrained than they would be anywhere else, " said Jim Redd, football coach.

Just like everyone else, the University ran short of money in early January and was forced to cut back on its spending. But according to Dr. George English, vice president of aca- demic affairs, the University did not face any serious financial trouble; it merely experienced a temporary cash-flow problem. " It was very simple, " he said. " There ' s a problem, but there really isn ' t a problem. " The problem, or lack of one, stemmed from the Administration Building fire. In order to relocate offices, replace lost equipment and clean up the Ad Building, the University had to dip into the current budget to pay those bills. In doing so, it reduced the amount of money on hand for this year. So, officials decided to spend only money that was absolutely neces- sary. " We had to spend our operation dollars to replace materials, supplies and equip- ment lost in the fire in order to start school in the fall, " said Dr. John Mees, vice president for student development. " Because we were low on cash, we started a freeze on spending. Until we can get the emergency appropria- tions, we are going to watch our dollars very carefully and will continue to do so during the next few years. " The University tried to get some of these funds back by requesting $1.1 million in emergency approp- riations from the Missouri Gen- eral Assembly. But action on this bill would not take place until March; and until it is approved the University watched its spend- 78 MONEY ing. " The bill should have been acted on in March, " Mees said. " If it happens not to pass, then we will have to be able to carry on until May or June. So we need to conserve as much money as possible in the next four months. " Procedures were changed in the business office during the money freeze. Normally, purchase re- quests were approved at the budget custodial level and then forwarded to the business office. But during the freeze, approval had to be made by a member of the appropriate operating commit- tee. " We ' re doing this just to make sure the vice president knows what ' s going on in his area so he can help monitor the respective areas, " Mees said. According to Mees, the cut- backs were made in operations in all departments and areas. Travel and equipment were also cut back drastically. " We ' re cutting back where we can, " Mees said. " We ' re trying not to disrupt the flow of activities that much. No basics of the University have been whittled down. " In his news and information office. Bob Henry said he had been trying to cut back several ways. He said that travel and publications from his office were cut. " We ' re still doing the same number of news releases, " he said. " It (the money freeze) always comes back to haunt you, but it hasn ' t slowed us down that much. " Although Dr. Harold Jackson, head of the music department, said he was making due with what they had, he was experiencing some trouble cutting back. " All of our pianos are out of tune, " he said. " But I knew I couldn ' t get them all tuned. I submitted a request to get only half of them fixed, but it was turned down. I will try again to get a fourth of them tuned, but we can ' t teach piano with all of our pianos out of tune. " One of the areas cut was in the production of the campus-pro- duced literary magazine. Envy ' s Sting. Despite the cutback, the staff tried to get support to print the publication. " We had to go to different banks and organizations in the community, " said Andrea Carter, co-editor. Despite receiving money else- where, Carter and the rest of the staff were disappointed with the loss of the original budget. " When I was first told, I felt very cheated, " she said. " We did a good job on the magazine last year, and I thought the University didn ' t have any reason to cut our budget. It just seemed like a very unfair move. " Even though the tight money crisis would be solved when appropriations were received from the state, Mees said that the University would watch its funds very closely in the future. " We ' re going to review our programs very carefully, " he said. " People are just going to have to do what they can with what they have now.

MONEY 79 It may be a fire trap , but it ' s home When the women of Roberta Hall were told they would have to vacate the 57-year-old dormitory, their torrent of complaints about mice, bats, cracked walls and plaster, broken pipes, lack of hot water and poor heating systems suddenly melted. On Feb. 14, administrative officials decided to vacate the hall, but reversed their decision when they met with opposition from most of the residents. " They seemed to be very upset with the facilities, so we called a meeting with the sororities ' advisors, " said President B.D. Owens. " That is when we decided to go ahead with the closing. " However, the administration met with more than 100 residents who protested the closing, and then met with sorority presidents, which triggered the decision to leave the dorm open on a trial basis. " We are allowing the girls to remain in the dorm only if they agree to follow certain rules and regulations, " Owens said. " But we will always have the option to move the girls out on a moment ' s notice. " Some of the new stipulations included smoking in designated areas only, the discontinuation of appliance usage, keeping electri- cal circuit use to a minimum and a volunteer fire patrol, with daily watches at 3 and 5 a.m. Northwest Missouri media, including the Kansas City Times, furthered the emphasis put on the deteriorating dorm. " I think the media called attention to the really significant problems--the safety problems and adverse living conditions in the facility, " Owens said. " That just brought it all back to the 80 ROBERTA HALL surface again. But apparently there weren ' t as many people ready to move out as we had been led to believe. There was miscommunication by some peo- ple that had indicated conditions were measurably worse than they had been in the past, " Owens said. Owens said that by agreeing to stay in the dorm and following rules absolutely, the women had undertaken a great task. " By agreeing to these things they have taken on a great responsibility, " Owens said. " Not only a responsibilitiy for them- selves, but in order for this to work, they will have to be responsible for each other. " Safety, which in the end was the dominating factor, was supposed to have been greatly improved by the regulations. " Roberta is probably safer than any other dorm on campus right now, " Owens said. " The girls are going to be so safety conscious that the conditions will be safer in the long run. " Following the reverse decision, a task force was organized to find alternative housing for next fall after a final decision was made not to re-open the University ' s oldest women ' s residence hall. " The task force will be comprised of people directly involved and affected by the closing of Roberta Hall, " said Dr. John Mees, vice president for student development. Several housing alternatives were discussed. Some of these included sorority houses and on-campus housing. One of the main considerations was to keep the sororities together. " I know some of the sororities would like to have houses, but I don ' t think any of them can financially afford it unless they receive help from their alumni or their national organizations, " said Bruce Wake, director of housing. The stories of bats, rodents and extensive deterioration prompted a great deal of publicity and fervent complaints. But it seemed the publicity was less than welcomed by the administration. Mees said the Roberta Hall coverage made the hall sound more like a prison than a women ' s dormitory. Deb Mullen, Roberta Hall director, said most people involved misconstrued the resi- dents ' attempt at bringing the problems to the surface. " The girls just wanted to make the conditions known so they could be repaired, " Mullen said. " It was certainly not done for sensationalism or to get the dorm closed, " she said. It seemed the initial reaction toward the administration was hostility. But after the administra- tion ' s views were known by the residents, they began to under- stand the University ' s point of view. " They were just responding to bad press, " Mullen said. " I was convinced that they honestly were concerned about what the girls wanted. " The administration was con- fident that the women would do nothing to jeopardize the chances of staying in the hall for the remainder of the semester. " There ' s a lot of self-descipline within the chapters and a lot of commitments from the girls to do it, " Mullen said. --Cindy Sedler f I KOBERTA HALL residents listen to I ames Cremer, director of campus safety, explain the proper way to use a fire oxiinguisher Sorority women exper- ienced meeting after meeting during their struggle to stay together in the dorm. -Nicholas CarUon KATHY RUSH CHECKS a third floor fire hose Early-morning checks were made in Roberta Hall after questions were raised concerning its safety BETH LANE, Paula Hanson and Linda Mannen exit Roberta Hall ' s north door during a fire drill.

ROBERTA HALL 81 Americans felt an international crisis hit close to home when militant Iranian students captured the American Embassy. But for young Iranians attending uni- versities in the United States, the situation was suffocating. For the 40 Iranian students at Northwest, the November selge of the American Embassy began what would become months of torturous uncertainty. And while the students were unsure about the safety of their families and homelands, they also faced possible deportation by the American government. President J immy Carter sent an order to the J ustice Department in November to deport Iranian students who had violated terms of their entry visas. Students had to prove they were enrolled full time and had no criminal record. Richard Landes, foreign stu- dent advisor, was not overly concerned about the decision. " As far as we ' re concerned, the 40 Iranian students are attending full time, violations, " and there he said. Landes summarized the three basic groups of Iranians on campus. " There are those who support Ayatollah, those who do not support Ayatollah and did not support the Shah, and thirdly, those on the extreme left. " While the United States gave the exiled Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi political asylum and cancer treatments for a time, ranian students were strongly against such action. " If the American government does not send the Shah back, " said one student from Iran, " it shows to the Iranian people that Americans approve of this foolish man. It shows that they are satisified that Shah killed peo- ple. " Iranian students agreed the Shah committed the crimes of which he was accused by the terrorists holding the hostages at the American Embassy. " You could not say anything against the Shah or you would be killed when he was in power, " said an Iranian student. " I could not even trust my best friend. " Carter was further criticized for aiding the Shah. " Carter is continuing to protect the Shah like he did before the revolution, " said another Iranian student. " I do not even think he knows the horror Shah brought to Iran. " Even after the Shah left the United States for Panama, the seige continued and Iranians at Northwest continued to live in a state of unrest. Early in the spring, Iranian students contended that American interference in Iran was three- fold. First, the United States was responsible for bringing the Shah back to power in 1953. Second, the CIA trained the Shah and his secret police how to rule the country by fear and force. And third, the United States exploited the value of Iran ' s oil. One Iranian student visited his country over Christmas and participated in demonstrations outside the United States Em- bassy. " Our country has vast amounts of oil, but our houses are cold, " he said. " The Shah kept the wealth from our oil instead of using it to build up our country. The United States bought our oil cheaply through the Shah without any concern for the Iranian people. Americans complain of waiting hours in gas lines, but in Iran I have stood in line two days for seven gallons of gas. " Few incidents occurred be- tween Iranian and American students on the Northwest cam- pus such as the ones on campuses across the country. " There were no major occur- rances, " said James Cremer, director of campus safety. Cremer said the safety depart- ment was aware of demonstra- tions--even riots--occurring on college campuses across the nation. " We recognized demonstra- tions were a possibility, so we were fortunate in this sense, " Cremer said. " Prevention is the key, " he continued. " We ' re working close- ly with the residence hall people to see that nothing happens. " Eric Hallerud, a resident assis- tant at Douglas Hall, reported a brick thrown through the window of an Iranian in his hall. " He was a real quiet guy, " said Hallerud, " and as far as I know he did nothing to provoke it. The brick looked like it was from the Ad Building rubble, and it had a piece of paper wrapped around it with little cut-out letters saying something to the effect of ' I like 82 IRAN key, odos 1 windo Ikfiowlif ; It, The from the around il ers sayinS AMERIC N STUDENTS expressed f ! of hostility toward Iranians in the States by hanging a protest sign on Hall The incident occurred just aftei Nov 4 takeover of the American Embas] Frank W.

" I think he thought it was i pretty silly, " said Hallerud. j Other outward expressions of j hostility included graffiti on walls, signs and messages on dorm room doors. " A couple of Iranians in Cooper Hall had firecrackers thrown under their doors repeatedly for a Icouple of weeks before Christ- mas, " Hallerud said. " Whoever did it was caught, but one of the guys ended up moving out. " Whatever hostile--or sympathe- tic-feelings of Americans, the Iranians alone felt the uncertainty of living in enemy territory halfway around the world from home. ■ ' They keep to themselves, " said Hallerud.

In the year of headlines, Maryville ' s rural setting and surrounding Northwest Missouri made the news as local and national events hit home. The area gained national publicity when officials in finan- cially-plagued Worth County were forced to close the county courthouse after it ran out of money. The shutdown came about after citizens defeated a 50-cent- per-$100 assessed valuation prop- erty tax-issue Nov. 7. Officials faced facts and closed down the courthouse two days later in Grant City. " I never really thought it would 84 LOCAL NEWS come to this, " said Larry Thompson, county clerk. " I don ' t think that the voters are really aware that there is a problem. " The courthouse stayed closed through 1979 and into the next year. Officials came up with a balanced 1980 budget, but that did not include money to run the courthouse. " We were just short, " said Thompson. " There just aren ' t any funds to budget for courthouse utilities, repairs, the janitor. . . In other words, it ' s going to have to stay closed until we get some more income from somewhere. " But until that income is found. county officials will continue to conduct business from improvised offices at home or in donated office space in downtown Grant City. While farmers in Worth County were feeling the pinch from their courthouse closing, they were also dealing with President Jimmy Carter ' s grain embargo against Russia. In retaliation to Russia ' s invasion of Afghanistan, Carter decided to block the shipment of 17 million metric tons of grain to that country. As a result of the embargo, a surplus of grain was created on the U.S. market, causing prices of grain to i _rf:. erai " decrease " Prices are hurting us, " said Hubert Gumm, manager of the MFA Exchange in Maryville. " They ' ve been down ever since the embargo went into effect. " In the Maryville area, corn and soybeans were the big crops, and both dropped more than 25 cents a bushel since the embargo started. Because of this, the farmers held back their products until the price got back to where it had been before the decrease " All we can do right now is hold onto our crop, " said Frank Morgan, area farmer. " We can ' t give it away, and that ' s what we would be doing if we sold it at these prices. Those who have to sell to pay bills are going to take a loss. For the rest of us, we are just going to have to wait and see what happens. " Farmers got a chance to air their complaints about the em- bargo when Secretary of Agricul- ture Bob Bergland talked to area residents at a farm in Bedford, Iowa. Bergland agreed with the embargo and said exports were increasing. " Despite the 17 million bushels of grain left from the embargo, exports are booming, " he said.

Fire struck the Wilson Motel in Maryville about a week later. The blaze destroyed the pool area, causing damages which exceeded $100,000. Some adjoining rooms also suffered smoke damage. In order to better combat fires, a sales tax increase was approved by Maryville voters in August. Some of the extra revenue from the tax was planned to purchase an aerial ladder truck and add two additional department of public safety employees. These additions reduced the city ' s insurance classification from a Class 8 to a Class 6. " The most specific drawback in this reduction is our equipment, " said Ray Hummert, city manager. " If we can get this type of equipment, we feel confident we can reduce our classification. " The 7 8-cent sales tax increase also brought extra revenue to the city ' s streets and public safety. Because of this. Mayor Keith Walburn called it a 50 50 plan. " Fifty percent will be used on streets and 50 percent on public safety, " he said. " It is a very simple face value program.

Des Moines was one of five stops for Popo John Paul I! in October. Almost 350,000 people, including 21 from the University, went to see the Pope in the 600-acre Living History Farms, west of Des Moines. Des Moines also made the news during the Iowa presidential caucus and the debates between major candidates sponsored by the Des Moines Register The debates were marred, however, when the two front runners. President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, did not agree to debate their opponents. This stand did not hurt Carter, but it might have hurt Reagan, as George Bush, former Central Intelligence Agency director, gave a surprise victory. K ansas City also made the news when after the Kansas City Royals failed to capture their fourth consecutive American League Western Division title, the man- agement of the team decided it was time for a change and fired Manager Whitey Herzog. A former Baltimore Oriole coach, Jim Frey, was named to replace Herzog in October. The Kansas City sports world took another jolt when Kemper Arena ' s roof collapsed June 4. The few workers in the structure during the disaster were unhurt.

" Lamkin renovation bill passed Fifteen years after the $1.4 million Lamkin Gymnasium -enovation bill was proposed, Gov. Joseph Teasdale approved it in July. " After 15 years of waiting, we are delighted that we are going to renovate Lamkin Gym and build a new swimming xx)l, " said President B.D Owens. " It was a long time :oming, and it took a tremendous amount of effort and energy before finally getting this passed. " The project includes a general refurbishing of Lamkin and the addition of an aquatic center connecting the northeast corner of Lamkin and the north side of the adjacent Martindale Gymnasium. The pool will be 25 yards long with six lanes. It will also include one three-meter diving board and two one-meter diving boards. The pool will also be enclosed and be a link between the two gyms. Men ' s and women ' s locker rooms, an observation area with bleachers, rooms for pool storage, mechanical equipment and a pool office are also included. The pool will replace the more than 50-year-old pool in Martindale. This area will also be renovated into an athletic training room and classroom. " The new pool is going to improve the aquatics here at the University, " said Richard Flanagan, athletic director. " It will help recruit a lot of students to the campus. " But the swimming pool is not the only thing that will be new at Lamkin. The plan also includes having a tartan running track installed around the basketball court. Nets will be added to separate the gym floor. This will be used for instruction and will be safer for intramural basketball. " With these new nets we will be able to break the gym up so we can have two classes going on at the same time, " Flanagan said. Other facets of the plan include the installation of ramps for the handicapped and replacement of the lighting system with energy-saving components. The heating and sound systems will be repaired. " These days you have to conserve energy, " said Flanagan. " These improvements should help us out in this department. " UNIVERSITY AND state officials participate in the swimming pool groundbreaking. After waiting 15 .-NicholfS Carlton years, the Missouri General As- sembly approved the financing for the new pool and the renovation Education department reverses decision Horace Mann funding shaky I After changing its decision two times, the Missouri Department of Higher Education finally recom- mended that the budgets for four university laboratory schools be funded through the 1980-81 fiscal year. Originally, the department had recommended that the Coordinating Board for Higher Education cut the lab school ' s budget by 50 percent. Among the schools to be cut would be the Horace Mann Learning Center. According to Stanley Koplik, deputy commissioner of higher education, the cuts would be made to equal the state ' s funding of lab schools and public schools. " Right now the public schools are receiving 50 percent from the state ' s funding, " Koplik said. " At the same time, however, the lab schools are receiving funding of 100 percent. We just wanted to see that lab schools received the same amount of money as public schools with the first recommendation. " Koplik said the recommendation was reversed because it was felt that the closing of the schools would cause more problems than it would solve. " We decided that if the budgets were cut, it would produce hardships within the universities and that other university services would probably suffer, " he said. Dr. Dean Savage, chairman of the Division of Education, agreed with Koplik. " The cutting of funds to Horace Mann would have the same effect as if the funds were cut from the chemistry and biology labs, " he said. " It would pull the center right out of the program. For the students to get hands-on experience, you have to have a laboratory setup much the way we have it here. " " I use Horace Mann as a learning experience, " said Barbie Hooper, elementary education major. " The lab school is a strong point for Northwest. The quality of education would still be here if the program was dropped, but as a drawing point for students to come here the school would be hurt. " Even though the decision was reversed, Koplik said that the department would recommend a three-year phase-out period within the lab schools. " It will be up to each university to decide if it would rather have a lab school than some other state-funded program, " Koplik said. " I think we will fight this in every way we can, " Savage said " We will try to continue the operation somehow within the University. " I -Jim MacNetl Roberta Hall loan denied i learninE )per i|or.

" - Kellv Hamilton University officals ' hopes were dashed when a Department of Housing and Urban Development loan was not approved for improvements for Roberta Hall " The loan wasn ' t possible this year, " said Dr. Robert Bush, vice president for environmental de- velopment. " We were in the top priority group, but they didn ' t have enough money to make the loan for us. " In effect, HUD said the University needed the money for the improvements but didn ' t have the funds available to sponsor the program. According to Bush, this is about the only way a public institution can have repairs done on a dormitory. " We cannot go to the state for appropriations for repairs in the dorms, " he said. DESPITE POOR CONDITIONS in Roberta Hall, Housing and Urban Development refused a loan to repair the structure Bush said Roberta was an " inefficient building, " with sev- eral things in need of repair " The plumbing is bad, while the windows and some wiring should be replaced. " " Sometimes we worry about our safety, " said Tina Buckler, Roberta resident. " The wiring is pretty old, but we have never had a fire since I ' ve lived here. We ' re not worried so much that we wouldn ' t live here, but it ' s always in the back of our minds. " Despite the poor conditions, Bush said women would continue to be housed in Roberta for the upcoming school year. But until then, the University still tried to find a way to repair the dorm. " We will resubmit the proposal next year to HUD, " Bush said. " Hopefully, we will be able to get matching funds. We have to get money to solve the problem. All we can do now is just cross our fingers for next year. " ROTC floats downstream IS An atmosphere of challenge prevailed as ROTC members from NWMSU and Missouri Western State College prepared to embark on the Gasconade River, just south of Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. The group of 41 students, five ROTC instructors and one faculty member floated the river for two days, covering 19 miles by canoe. The ROTC-sponsored float trip " enabled students to see what it would be like to be a second lieutenant in the army, " said Major Robert Sauve. " We wanted to give the students an insight into what certain facilities are like in the army as well as to show them what responsibilities a second lieutenant would assume. " On Sept. 19, the group boarded ROTC STUDENTS FIX breakfast in the early morning on their Gasconade River trip a 70-passenger paratrooper plane at Rosecrans Airport in St. Joseph that then flew them to basic training camp in Fort Leonard Wood. While on the base, the ROTC members were given a formal tour of the base, which included a question and answer session with junior officers resid- ing on the base. ' " Most of the officers had a positive attitude about army life. However, there was one officer who evidently hated it and gave us all negative answers, " said Linda Carand. Before the group left for the trip, members were issued equip- ment which included heavy down- filled jackets, tents and a canoe. " We w ere assigned two or three per canoe and everybody was issued half a tent. Then you found one other person to share a tent with and just snapped it together, " said Carand. " They paid for all of the trip except for the $7 we had to pay for our food while we were on the base. We brought the food for the meals on the water. " The first day on the water started at 8:30 a.m. and lasted until 5:30 p.m. when the group set up camp along the bank After an early start the next morning, the 19-mile trip was completed around 2 p.m. " I ' d never canoed before, so it was a great new experience for me. It was a nice slow river with only a couple of rough spots, and I only saw a couple of spills, " said John Steinaker. " The scen- ery was beautiful, but my favorite part was touring a couple of fair-sized caves we found along the way. The mist over the water in the morning was also terrific. " NEWS BLURBS 91 Parking spaces everywhere, but not a place to park. Next to your dorm, that is. Apparently, changes were in order. Parking situation resolved In order to reduce the amount of tickets given to students, a new parking policy went into effect midway through the year. THE NEW PARKING policy is supposed to eliminate situations such as the crowded conditions and illegal parking that occurred in the parking lot by North South Complex. " The whole thrust of the new policy is to remove the inequali- ties of sticker distribution and to remove the inequalities of much of the ticketing, " said James Cre- mer, director of campus safety. The new policy had only two ty pes of parking stickers for students. There was a commuter permit for off-campus students and a resident permit for all students living on campus. Cremer said this helped limit the unfair aspect of the old parking policy. The lot designations remained the same, but on-campus students were able to park in every on-campus lot without getting a ticket. In the past, students had a designated parking area. " There have always been enough resident spaces, " Cremer said. " But there were sometimes too many cars for one area. There was no way we could guarantee a space next to the building the students lived in. " Although this policy reduced the number of tickets given, the amount of a ticket went up from $1 to $3. A limit was also placed on the number of citations a student could receive in a semester and a year. If a student was issued five tickets a semester or eight in an academic year, his parking privileges would be revoked. " This is a built-in motivation for the student to find a correct parking space, " Cremer said. " Now we have placed the responsibility of parking on the driver. " Although most of the response to the new policy was good, Cremer said he had some complaints. " The few complaints 1 had were based on the lack of understand- ing of the new rules, " he said. " After I explained the policy to them, the complaints were few- er. " SECURITY OFFICER Robert Zorie prepares to write a ticket to an illegally parked vehicle.

I Teaching certificate revoked Agnes Miller, whose teaching certificate was revoked Nov. 29 by Northwest ' s Board of Regents, filed suit against board members and the commissioner of educa- tion for improper procedure At the regular November session, board members voted five to one to revoke Millers teaching certificate, which North- west issued to her in 1954 The revocation stemmed from the boards decision that Miller had refused to honor a teaching contract signed two years ago. At the November session, the board heard testimony from Supt. Donald K. Heard, Willow Springs R-IV Public Schools, and Miller, who had taught in the district for six years. Before the disputed contract was signed with the school district, Miller and her family moved from Willow Springs to West Plains. Later, Miller said she signed the teaching contract while commuting to Willow Springs from her home. But because of the high cost of living and last year ' s hike in gasoline prices, Miller said, it became economically impossible for her to continue commuting. On Aug. 20, 1979, Miller submitted her resignation to the Willow Springs School District. The district, however, would not dismiss Miller, Heard said, because a substitute could not be found to replace her However, when her certificate was revoked. Miller was no longer eligible to teach or substitute. Miller asked that the court reverse the decision of the board by reinstating her teaching certificate. President B.D. Owens said the suit filed against the members of the board was more of a case to bring into circuit court, which is the appeals process for her certificate " There is another process that is outlined in the statutes, but that attorney chose not to do that, " Owens said. As for the impact a certificate revocation has, Owens said, each situation has a different set of circumstances. " If someone signs a contract or makes a commitment and then reneges on that commitment, thereby leaving the school district in a difficult set of circumstances, I think the board has every right to ask to have it reviewed. And the state statute is pretty clear. There isn ' t much doubt in one ' s mind after you ' ve read the statute as to what it says about breaking a contract, " he said. Inflation causes fee increase Inflation caught up with Uni- versity students with the Board of Regents ' fee increase for the 1980-81 academic year. But fees may be on the increase again for students, because Master Plan III for higher education in Missouri states that students attending state-sup- ported institutions of higher learning must pay 20 percent of the cost of their education. The increases raise the amount stu- dents pay from 16.1 percent to 18.1 percent. President B.D. Owens told the board that a jump to 20 percent this year would be detrimental. He said he has received some indications that other universities may not comply with the 20 percent mark. While no decision was made, the board discussed the possibility of another increase for the 1981-82 school year. These increases would bring the institution to the 20 percent fee level stated in Master Plan III. All phases of fees were raised. Tuition for Missouri undergrad- uate and all graduate students rose from $210 to $245. Out-of- state students will have to pay $445 next year, an increase of $25. Students taking eight hours or less will be charged $28 an hour, up $4 from this year. Out-of-state students will be assessed $45 per hour next year. Housing and food contracts were also on the rise. Students wishing to live in the high rise dorms next year will be charged $225 a semester. Other dorm rooms will cost $205 a semester. A private room in the high rises will now cost $325, while other private rooms will be increased to $305 a semester. Next year a 20-meal plan will go to $400 a semester, while a student wishing to purchase a 15-meal program will be charged $360. A 10-meal plan will be $320 a semester. The library fee will be $20 a semester, up $5 from this year. NEWS BLURBS 93 University plans modest celebration what started out as a gala affair turned into just a quiet celebration for the University ' s 75th Anniver- sary. " At first the celebration was much more elaborate than we have it now, " said Robert Sunkel, committee chairman and head of the Fine Arts Division. " But a lack of funds forced us to change that. Now it is costing us practically nothing. We decided not to scrap it, but just go with what we could. " Several changes have been made in the program, which was set to run from March 25 to Oct. 11. Monetary reasons were the basic factor, according to Sunkel. During the first planning stages, a major speaker was sought, but a lack of money cancelled that. " We looked into Paul Harvey, Henry Kissinger and Jane Fon- da, " Sunkel said. " But they were either too expensive or had a history of cancelling out at the last minute. Harvey alone would have cost us $15,000 plus expenses, and that would be for only an hour-long speech. " But Sunkel was still happy with the celebration plans, although several changes were made. One of the changes was the cancella- tion of the opera, " The Devil and Daniel Webster. " Among other problems with the production, the lead singer had the flu and could not commit himself to the show. An art exhibition, " The Har- monious Craft-American Musical Instruments, " pleased Sunkel. The University was one of four places this exhibition would be shown. " We were very pleased to get this exhibition, " he said. " We got in at the very beginning in order to get it. We were the only college or university to get it. The rest were museums or large gal- leries. " The exhibition was planned as 94 NEWS BLURBS part of the first stages of the celebration. The first part con- centrated on the University ' s past, while the next academic year will look into the future of the institution. Dr. Virgil Albertini ' s book on the history of the Univeristy will also be published in the fall. -Dave Gieseke Restrictions placed on frat parties The number of open fraternity parties allowed were reduced when Inter-Fraternity Council passed a proposa l early in the second semester. The proposal limited each fraternity to only two-and-one-half open parties a semester. An open party is one to which everyone on campus and the communi- ty is invited, according to Jeff Cook, IFC president. Half a party is defined as a party held with another fraternity. All open parties were required to be held outside the fraternities ' houses, in a location such as the Legion Hall. Cook said IFC passed the proposal to reduce the liabilities a fraternity has in giving an open party. " We ' ve cut back the risks for fraternities for being liable against accidents or things that might happen after a party, " Cook said. " Plus no fraternity has a license to sell beer, and with most of the students under age, we ' re not really legal. We ' ve had several scares with liquor inspectors. " While the fraternity could not have an open party in the house, closed parties could be held. A closed party is open to all women, and to men with a written invitation. In order to enforce these rules, IFC planned to level fines against the fraternities that broke them. The violating fraternity would be fined $100 AT A SIGMA TAU GAMMA party, two students enjoy a drink. After an Inter-Fraternity Council ruling, no open parties can be held at a fraternity ' s house. per prohibited open party and $250 for having more than the allotted two-and- one-half open parties per semester. These rules did not apply during rush. Cook said, but should help open up the rush pool. " It should help eliminate the professional rushee, " Cook said. " It will also reduce the liabilities, give us a more favorable opinion in the communi- ty and give the fraternities the realization of what we are here for. Fraternities are here for a purpose, and that isn ' t to provide beer to the whole campus. Independents have to realize that there is more to fraternity life than a social gathering. " This plan was on a semester trial basis and will be reviewed by IFC next fall. But Cook said he thought the proposal would remain. " It is cut and dried right now, " Cook said. Bridge faces possible shutdown The lO-year-old discussion a- bout closing the wooden bridge to traffic between the University and North College Drive continued, although no decision was made The bridge, owned by Norfolk and Western Railway Co., was viewed by many Maryville stu- dents and residents as a potential THE V OODhN RAILWAY bridge north of campus may face closing traffic hazard. " I think it ' s unsafe myself, " Tom NeppI said. " You can ' t see over it and cars are all of the time having to back up. " Pedestrian safety was also a prime concern. " Bridges like that are out of date, " said Noel Weaver. Maryville City Manager Ray Hummert said the city was willing to close the bridge to traffic but wanted to leave the decision up to the University since it would cut down on access to the campus. But President B.D. Owens said the bridge was not the Univer- sity ' s responsibility. " It ' s the railroad ' s problem-we just happen to be close, " Owens said.

Ken Wiley, St. Joseph Meadow Cold Company ' s credit manager, said his dairy plant was forced to shut down production three times in early February because of a lack of containers used to store processed milk. Wiley and his company con- tacted other area colleges and universities asking for their cooperation in the return of stolen crates " It ' s not just the college students who caused the prob- ' lem, " Wiley said. " I don ' t know where the crates are vanishing to " " We ' re not pointing fingers at anyone, " Wiley continued. " I just don ' t think people are aware of the seriousness of this problem. I have a firm belief that 99 percent will cooperate because I have a high regard for young people. " ROBERTA HALL residents Judy iMaloney and Gloria Evola stack milk crates to be returned after a request was made by a St. Joseph dairy company Unless a crate ' s ownership could be proven by a bill of sale, its possession was prohibited by law. James Cremer, campus safety director, talked with University hall directors and asked them to alert campus residents to the crate shortage. " It was like a free library return day, " Cremer said. " We asked that the students return the crates with no penalties involved. " Cremer said he would not make any dorm-wide searches for missing milk crates. " We left it up to the students to be responsible enough to turn them in, " he said. Just four days after students began returning the crates, Cremer estimated 400 were returned to his department. Because of the lack of crates, Wiley ' s Meadow Gold Company was forced to begin charging grocers a $2.50 deposit per crate. Jerry Scott, manager of a Maryville grocery store, said he received between 170 and 190 cases of milk a week. " Milk crates are a big problem right now, " he said. " The replacement costs are tremend- ous. People really have no advantage in taking them because no one buys the crates back, " he said. --Kelly Hamilton Scraping the bottom of the barrel The energy crunch started hitting home when gasoline neared the dollar-a-gallon mark and classroom temperatures hit eighty degrees during summer school 96 CAS SHORTAGE CAS LINES FIRST HIT Maryviile during the summer on a Friday afternoon Students needing gas to get home found a 20-minute wait at the Imperial station. Throughout the United States, the growing possibility of a gas shortage was on the minds of nearly every American, and Maryviile was no exception. As a result, the University tried several methods of conserving the energy it had in a critical period when running out of fuel was a possibility. As early as June 1979, the University participated in a state-wide voluntary reduction in fuel consumption. After attending a meeting with Gov. Joseph Teasdale, President B.D. Owens planned the Uni- versity ' s conservation plan. The first stage, called the vehicle fuel usage reduction plan, was headed by Owens and Steve Easton, director of construction. The main goal of the plan was to cut back on University gasoline consumption. " In the garage, their job was to make sure the vehicles were properly operated and maintained to achieve peak efficiency. We also looked into the use of gasohol and replaced old tires with radial tires, " said Easton. Other possible solutions the University tried included setting all thermostats on 80 degrees in the summer, purchasing Cush- man three-wheel vehicles and having a four-day work week for five administrative offices that, if successful, would be used for class schedules as well. Individuals on campus saw the need for fuel conservation and tried methods on their own. Many students walked instead of driving to school, and Dr. Ron Moss, professor of management in the school of Business Administration, bought an electric car called a Citicar. Moss said the car was not the only answer, but was good for in-town, slow traffic needs. In September, voluntary meth- ods were replaced by mandatory orders for energy cuts. A request for a 10 percent reduction in the use of electricity was handed down by Teasdale along with other guidelines concerning ener- gy usage for the 1979-80 fiscal year. Thermostats were set at 78 degrees, and other methods of transportation were encouraged. " President Owens and I have been riding bicycles in the spring and summer months, " said Dr. Robert Bush, vice president for environment. " Bicycles are very effective to get around campus, and a lot more convenient. " Another setback was the beginning of the cold winter months. Some students were not willing to give up the use of a vehicle to walk or ride a bicycle in colder weather. " 1 can ' t ride my bike on the snow, and it ' s just too cold to walk anymore, " said Kevin Conroy. " Gas is higher, but I live too far from campus to walk to class in the cold. " Energy problems were in- creased when, in the first week of November, 60 Americans were taken hostage by revolutionary Iranians under the influence of the Ayatollah Khomeini. The Iranians demanded the return of the Shah of Iran, who was receiving medical treatment continued CAS SHORTAGE 97 ■, = g l - l — Scraping the bottom of the barrel continued in the United States. The United States government refused and placed an embargo on any Iranian oil. At this time President Jimmy Carter assured the American people that the oil previously purchased from Iran could easily be replaced by other sources. However, the prices of gasoline continually rose and the threat of a fuel shortage remained. " I can ' t stand the high gas prices. It really cuts down on my expense money and cash for things to do, " said Rich James. " I started walking more. It ' s frus- trating to see Carter decon- trolling gas prices, using the Middle East as an excuse. I think he could have made other incentives to the oil companies to encourage them to make their own sources of fuel instead of allowing the decontrolling. " According to Bush, the Univer- sity met and exceeded Teasdale ' s guidelines for energy usage. The University decreased its energy consumption by 13 percent during the first six months of the fiscal year, despite an increase in students living on campus and additional exterior safety lights that were installed on campus. " The prices are going up because there will always be a demand for it, " said Mark Avitt. " I think the answer is to find a source other than oil. 1 see the oil age as bound for extinction.

It is known as the waste-to- energy plan and may become a reality in the next couple of years. It is based on the concept of converting solid waste into us- able fuel. The three units under consideration range from approxi- mately $1 million to $4 million. " The solid waste system would reduce utility costs for the University by cutting back on the required amounts of fuel and natural gas, " said Dwight Bran- son, director of purchasing. The solid waste unit would lighten the load of area landfills, which, according to Branson, are " notorious as ground water pollutants, " Half of the United States population uses ground water, " Branson said. " The ash produced from the steam unit that will be put in the landfill is only one-twentieth the volume of the present landfills Solid waste fuel is very dense, non-contaminating and doesn ' t smell. All of this would make it less expensive to operate because it is not neces- sary to cover it over every day. Overall, it would greatly reduce contamination to the environ- ment. " Every fuel system must have a back-up system. But at present, the boiler system stands alone According to Branson, imple- mentation of the new unit would put the old boiler system in a back-up position. " Though it is rare for a catastrophic breakdown to occur, if it did, we would have nothing to fall back on. We do have a back-up in fuel, but not a system, " Branson said. Dr. Robert Bush, vice president for environmental development, said that a decision to institute the steam system must not be a hasty one. " It is such a crucial decision, and so many people know what we are considering that all the necessary time needed will be taken, " said Bush. " This plan will be either very positive or very negative because of the PR we have received. " Finances for the steam unit will be acquired on a payback plan, not through appropriations. " We have checked into leasing companies about 5- to 7-year payback plans, " Bush said. " I don ' t know of anyone who has gone to the money market for finances. " Waste-to-energy became better known and explored across the country. " Solid waste is being approved and burned all across the country by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Missouri Depart- ment of Natural Resources, " Branson said. Branson said the disadvantages were hard to detect in the steam system. " It ' s hard to find something wrong with something that saves a chunk of money and provides better service and living condi- tions, " he said. " No system is going to be perfect, but so far, there doesn ' t appear to be any major problem with the unit. " -Cindy Selder CAS SHORTAGE 99 The 1970s A decade of headlines As the 1970s rolled around, Dr. Robert Foster was president of Northwest Missouri State College. Walkout Day and the Ugly Man contest were still campus traditions to the 5,530 students. The Delta Chi fraternity was in its first year of existence. Before school let out in the spring of 1970, four Kent State University students, protesting the Vietnam War, were shot by National Guardsmen. Nearly 300 people gathered at Rickenbrode Stadium the following week to listen to speeches by faculty members and students. The decade opened on high notes in both sports and new facilities on campus. In March 1970, Stan Zeamer captured the 134-pound class national wrestling championship title. With this victory, he became the first Bearcat since Herschel Neil in the 1930s to claim a national championship That same month a new building was dedicated Completed the year before, the Donald Valk Industrial Arts Building was now functional. With the second year of the decade came a step toward opening communication about drugs when the Regional Drug Education Workshop was held early in the year. A Student Bill of Rights was proposed by the Student Senate as enrollment continued to rise. " We were in a tremendous building program from 1964 to the early 70s, " Foster said. " Besides these buildings, we also remodeled Martindale Gymnas- ium, built the new dining facility and added on to the east side of the football (Rickenbrode) stadium. " The two new high rise dorms, Dieterich and Millikan, were completed in 1971 despite a general work stoppage that halted construction from the spring to the late summer of 1970. Soon after the completion of the dorms the Memorial Bell Tower was finished in September 1971. Originally, plans called for con- struction of a brick bell tower of Gothic design, similar to the ACCORDING TO Sherri Reeves, former Bearkitten basketball coach, the foundation of women ' s sports was the basketball program. towers on the Administration Building. When bids on that structure surpassed financial limitations, administrators were faced with the decision to either raise more money or build a less expensive structure. The cost was cut, and new plans called for a symmetrical white tower composed of six sides. In 1971 the Northwest Missouri State College Educational Foundation was formed " for the promotion of the welfare, goals and programs of NWMSU. " The non-profit foundation was made up of 18 board members and was set up to help finance students, programs and faculty research. " The Foundation ' s purpose is to aid the University, " Foster said. " Although it is not a part of the institution itself, I consider it one of the outstanding achieve- ments of my administration. It will continue to aid people as long as there is an institution. " KXCV became a reality in 1971. The radio station first aired in January and became a member of National Public Radio in June of that year. " The radio station turned from a club to a very viable product in the 70s, " said Vinnie Vaccaro, Alumni Association ' s executive secretary and former KDLX station manager. " It has gone from a closet to one of the finest facilities in the nation. " Enrollment took its first decrease in 1972, with 300 fewer students attracted to campus.

Northwest Missouri State College became Northwest Missouri State University in 1972 when the Missouri Legislature passed a bill stating all colleges in Missouri would become universities. " This was a result of a lot of hard work in Jefferson City, " Foster said. " We had tried in the past but hadn ' t been able to get it through. " Foster said the status of the institution was also changed because " it had developed from a teacher ' s school into a multi- purpose institution. We were not only offering general course offerings but graduate programs and degrees. " It was in that year that the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted accreditation to the school ' s graduate programs. Along with this, NCA gave new approval to develop graduate programs in education, math and agriculture. Foster credited his adminis- tration with offering new programs and strengthening academics. " We wanted to strengthen the academics through the faculty and improving the library, " he said. " The idea at the time was to bring all the departments up to- gether. Even though we accom- plished a lot, we were never satisfied that we had done enough. " Sports took a big jump in 1972. The Bearcat football team had not won an MIAA con- ference title since 1952. But the Gladden Dye-coached team changed all that. " Watching that team has been one of my biggest thrills here, " 102 SEVENTIES said Mike Kiser, sports informa- tion director. " Going from 4-5 (the year before) to 7-3 and a conference title was great. The team played to win, and they enjoyed playing the game. " The 1972 squad was led by Jim Albin, a running back and punter for the ' Cats. " J im Albin typified our team at that time, " Kiser said. " He was gutsy. He was just one of the best Division II football players I have ever seen. " Women ' s athletics started coming into its own when the Bearkitten basketball team won the state title that year. This championship started things going for the women, according to Sherri Reeves, assistant athletic director. " Since we won that champion- ship, the scholarship offerings have increased greatly, " she said. " Before this we had the begin- nings of athletic teams, but they were just an outgrowth of our physical education majors. The 1972-73 season was the first we had an actual operating budget. " In 1973 the University dairy still provided most of the milk and ice cream needed in the cafeteria. Enrollment continued to drop; and a student, less Hilt, was murdered in her College Gardens apartment. Sports again captured the spotlight in 1973. After winning the MIAA conference title, the Bearcat tennis team went on to nationals and placed fourth. " Coach (John) Byrd success- fully recruited foreign players, and the squad always seemed to finish in the top 10 nation- ally, " Kiser said. " It was one of the more successful sports programs we have ever had here. " A major land purchase was made by the Education Founda- tion in 1973. The Foundation purchased 80 acres east of Maryville. The acreage will front a proposed lake-reservoir, the Mozingo Watershed. " The Mozingo Watershed is still in the planning stages, " said Bob Henry, director of news and information. " If it is eventually finished, it will be used by the biology department as well as the PE department. It could also be used for recreation by students. Currently, though, a little bit of farming is done by the agriculture department. " Streaking hit the nation and NWMSU in 1974, and structural damage from a Black Oak Arkansas concert forced concerts to be banned temporarily in Lamkin Gymnasium. A major reorganization of the administra- tion also occurred to meet future budget reductions. The Elba program was discontinued by the University in 1974. A year earlier, the Univer- sity had signed a joint agreement with the Elba Systems Corp., a Colorado-based organization, to offer an insurance-oriented course IN 1975 A BACHELOR ' S degree program in nursing was added. President Robert Foster said one goal of the University in the 70s was to bring up all academic departments together. I ' I partmenis seeking to offer career education programs in life insurance sales management and equity sales management. The program came under fire when the academic substance of the correspondence course and possible misrepresentation by NWMSU administrators in winning approval for the course were questioned. In November of that year, the University terminated its contract with Elba. Dr. Charles Thate, then University provost, said that the growth of the program had far surpassed the University ' s expectations " The problems indigenous to administering the program with the volume of students as large as it is have become as great as the University ' s capacity to solve them, " Thate said in 1974. " Before enrollment in- creases to a point where the problems become insurmount- able, we have deemed it advisable to terminate the program " While one program was eliminated that year, another was on its way up. The vocational- agricultural program was added in 1974, although it was not finalized until 1976. " Basically the vocational- agricultural program is preparing teachers to go out and teach agriculture, " said Dr John Beeks, chairman of the agri- culture department. " We worked hard and long for this program. It took us six years to get it. " This degree was a great breakthrough for the University, according to Foster. " We were the only institu- tion in the state besides the Uni- versity of Missouri-Columbia to offer the program at this time, " Foster said. " We felt we had to do continued MARTINDALE CYM was re- modeled in 1974 The outward appearance and the Inside of the building was changed extensively. WORKERS REPAIR the Little Theater during the renovation of the Administration Building The three-phase plan was started in 1976 and was completed in 1979 SEVENTIES 103 A decade of headlines continued this because we could serve the rural areas more. It was something we felt brought recog- nition to the University. " Construction continued on campus with the remodeling of Martindale Gymnasium. The building was expanded to allow for new faculty offices, a dance studio and more classrooms. The entrances to the gym were also restructured. " The outward appearance changed greatly, " Henry said, " and the inside of the building was extensively redone. " Administrative reorganization continued in 1975 when Thate resigned his position as provost and went back to the classroom. A bachelor ' s degree program in nursing was added, and the base- ball Bearcats finished fifth in the nation. Women ' s sports continued to expand the following year. Volley- ball and tennis were added; cross country had been added the year before. If enough interest was shown in a sport at that time, it would be added. Reeves recalled. " This has been the biggest change in sports here, " Kiser said. " In other universities, women ' s athletics have been accepted grudgingly. Here every- one has worked together, and we have been looked on as a leader in women ' s athletics. " While women ' s athletics expanded, an attempt to locate the state optometry school here failed. NWMSU was the first Missouri institution to officially inquire into the school ' s location, but the proposal was defeated. Enrollment took an unexpected jump in the bicentennial year, and changes continued to occur on campus. Air conditioning was installed in Colden Hall and a new dairy facility was built just off the main campus. Jim Redd became the new football coach, and special ceremonies were held on campus to commemorate the Bicentennial. In 1976, the ' Cat tennis team won another MIAA conference title. But that was not the only big news on the tennis front. In May they hosted the national cham- pionship, finishing eighth. Later that year the MIAA withdrew from the conference championship because of illegal scholarships offered by Byrd. The conference contended that the foreign student scholarships offered by Byrd to prospective tennis players were actually athletic scholarships. This action caused the University to offer more than the 57 athletic scholarships than allowed by the MIAA. " This signalled a different direction for the tennis program, " Kiser said. " We went from a unique Division II program to a typical Division II program. " The first phase of the Admin- istration Building renovation began in 1976. Phase I dealt with " behind the walls " changes. These included basement utility systems and roof repairs. Administrative changes continued in 1977 when Dr. Don Retry resigned as executive vice president. The University was named in the Elba suit and the football team received national recognition before tailing off to a .500 season. Enrollment took PRESIDENT ROBERT FOSTER retired In 1977 and an alum, Dr B D Owens, was named to replace him. Owens took over the presidency in July 1977. I. d in ertli« SWIMMING WAS ONE of the three sports discontinued in 1977 Cvmn.islics and golf were also cancelled by the Board of Regents another dip, down fo 3,891 students. Petrys resignation was not the only administrative change in 1977. In the summer, Foster retired as president, and Dr. B.D. Owens, an alumnus, took over in July. " With Dr. Owens being named president, the University had finally reached full maturity. It had reached a point where it could go into its own alumni ranks and find a new president, " Henry said. Inauguration Week, climaxing on Nov. 18, brought the attention of the entire region to the Uni- versity, according to Henry. " It was a week of seminars, entertainment and social events capped by the inauguration of President Owens on Friday, " Henry said. " It helped the Uni- versity set a tone on Dr. Owens ' belief in the excellence of the institution. " " The week gave people an opportunity to assess the insti- tution, " Owens said. Before Owens took over in J uly, Phase II was completed. " Phase II included remodeling of the radio stations, an elevator and the fourth floor speech department, " Foster said. " Since 1970 we were in a constant state of construction, " said Rollie Stadlman, director of broadcast services. " There was never one minute in the 70s that we considered the radio station finished. " Another new academic depart- ment began in 1978. Reserve Officers Training Corps came when a cross-enrollment agree- ment was reached with the Army and Missouri Western State College. That was the only agree- ment with Missouri Western, as the two institutions fueded over a variety of issues. Fires struck the high rise dorms, causing little damage, and bombs threatened many campus facilities. The foot- ball team went 0-11, and Student Senate President Rex Gwinn resigned with John Moore elected to take his place. When ROTC came into exis- tence, it was grouped with several other applied sciences with the reorganization of the University ' s academic structure. Under the old structure, Dr. George English, vice president of academic affairs and dean of faculties, had 26 units reporting to him. " It was an almost impossible situation as far as communication and coordination were concerned, " English said. A restructuring committee worked on the changes for a year before the plan was implemented. The reorganization called for 10 colleges, schools and divisions. Before reorganization went into effect, the Board of Regents voted to drop gymnastics, swimming and golf from the athletic program. Swimming was cancelled because of inadequate facilities, gymnastics was dis- continued because of a lack of competition with area schools and golf was dropped because of the Dad weather experienced in the spring. " It ' s never easy to discontinue any programs, whether they are sports or otherwise; however, one must assess the resources he has and the liabilities of the pro- gram, " said Dr. John Mees, vice president for student affairs Enrollment increased for the first time in several years during the last year of the decade. Phase III, which included office space on the first and second floors of the Administration Building, was completed. Another administrative shakeup occurred in the fall, and a new fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, tried to gain admittance to fraternity row. After 15 years, the Lamkin Gym renovation bill was passed. Disaster struck the University July 24, 1979. That night a fire destroyed 60 percent of the Administration Building. The fire destroyed the radio station, both theaters and the speech pathology department as well as striking several academic areas. " In the history of the institu- tion, the fire is the biggest single event, " Owens said. " The Administration Building is the heart of the campus and the heart of the University, " Although the University was operating again the next morning at different locations throughout campus, some departments were not the same for a long time. " We ' re (the radio station) back at square one, " Stadlman said. " All the work we had done on the radio station in the 70s was wiped out in one night. " But while the University suffered a great loss, many people felt that it would strengthen the University in the 1980s. " The fire will bring the Uni- versity back together to work harder and have a stronger institution, " Foster said. " The University will be able to build on this loss, but it will take a long time to recover from it. " -DaveCieseke SEVENTIES 105 Academics Improving the quality of education D espite several unexpected obstacles, academic quality was on the upswing. Headlines were made with a new policy of striving to hire only Ph.D.s. The offering of a graduate center at Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph was continued, and planning for a master ' s program in secondary education and school computer studies was started. Some of the major drawbacks stemmed from headlines created by the Administration Building fire when all administrative offices and speech, communications and agriculture departments were relocated. Another hindrance was the budget cut made by Gov. Joseph Teasdale in which Northwest received $200,000 less than was recommended. -Dave Gi eke ii ;4- E ' qA ► B i k l wk iHhI H B HM jr ' M KB ' US k 1 s 1 H IHh |m p i DURING A HOME football «ame, Bev Faust telecasts the action As part of the TV production class, students filmed home football games to gain experience.

Between the shifting of posi- tions and the Administration Building fire, the administration ' s daily routine was anything but routine. Dr. John Paul Mees, vice pres- ident for student development, also assumed the responsibilities of the University ' s business office after Don Henry, former Univer- sity treasurer, took a six-month leave of absence and then d ecided to seek employment elsewhere. " Aside from my normal re- sponsibilities in the area of stu- dent development, I was responsi- ble for fiscal affairs, the responsi- bilities of the business office and coordinating and preparing bud- get information, " Mees said. Jeanette Solheim, who had worked for the University since 1974, served as acting treasurer for the University and the Board of Regents, as well as being business manager. Because of the Ad Building fire, several alterations and adjust- ments were made. " Some adjustments certainly had to be made, " Mees said. " But they have been challenging and rewarding as we see our pro- gress. In order to fulfill all of the duties, it was necessary for some individuals to assume greater responsibilities, which they did magnificently. " Mees said the morale of the staff aided in accomplishing business. BOB HENRY TALKS with President B D. Owens on the gro undbreaking ceremonies of the aquatic center at Homecoming Henry gained more responsibility at the University after the Ad Building fire 108 ADMINISTRATION DR. GEORGE ENGLISH tours the fire- damaged Ad Building with State Represent- ative Kenneth Rothman. " The morale of the staff is ex- ceedingly high in view of the circumstances, " Mees said. " It is amazing what people can do when they have to. ' However, morale was said to be a big problem for the University in a Maryville Daily Forum article Sept. 13, University Chief Ac- countant Rod Hennegan told the Forurr. s managing editor: " Morale is a problem at the Uni- versity and there is a lack of con- cern for the people, and many people are overloaded to the point that they caniiot possibly carry out their duties. " Hennegan and John Drum- mond, University comptroller, both submitted resignation s in September. " I had been putting in extra hours after the fire, so I resigned to allow more time with my family, " Drummond said. " It was really hectic. We were closing out last year ' s budget, starting this year ' s budget and formulating next year ' s budget, " he said. " We were also in the process of putting in a new financial system. There just wasn ' t much end in sight, and the fire put us way behind, " he said. " The article the University came back with (in rebuttal to the Forum article) stated that I was talking about working overtime since the fire, " Hennegan said. " I just want to say that I ' ve been working overtime for a year now. I was just worn out to the point of not enjoying my job. " President B.D. Owens said he knew the business office had been working overtime right after the fire, but said he did not realize that the overload of work had been going on all year. ' ' I regret that these people were put in this position, " Owens said. " Earlier, I asked some people to interview their employees to find out what their feelings were on different things. I talked to some- one the other day who said he wished he had spoken up earlier, " Owens said. To replace Henry, the Univer- sity ' s Board of Regents approved a new administrative position, vice president for financial affairs. The position was to aid in the restructuring of the business and financial departments of the Uni- versity. It would have also overseen the treasurer ' s po- sition,. But when the money got tight for the University at the first of 1980, the position was shelved in favor of an assistant to the presi- dent. This position would be filled within the University structure. " We were hoping not to fill this position, but with the restructur- ing of the management level positions, it increased the work- load of business office people continued ADMINISTRATION 109 Who are all the president ' s men? WHILE PRESIDENT BD Owens greets Gov. Joseph Teasdale, former University Treasurer Don Henry waits to tour the Ad Building 110 ADMINISTRATION continued responsible now to this office, " Owens said. The adjustments, however, were not restricted to the business offices of the University. Dr. Robert Bush, assistant to the president since 1977 and an ad- ministrative staff member at the University since 1968, was named vice president for environmental development. " His duties will remain basically the same, " Owens said. " But his change in title reflects the high level of responsibility he has had and will continue to have in the future. " Bush continued to administer to the University ' s overall physical plant operation. He was also a central figure in such physical plant areas as the construction of the $1.4 million aquatic center, preparation of plans to replace facilities lost in the Ad Building fire and the renovation and possible razing of Roberta Hall. " More recently I have become involved in the possibility of establishing a waste-to-energy plant, " Bush said. " Now that we have started thinking very seri- ously about this, it is very exciting and should be interesting to see how everything turns out. " Bush said one of the biggest problems faced after the fire was communication. " In the early days following the fire we were all left with more than enough work to keep us busy, " Bush said. " The displace- ment of offices did not make communication easy, but it was workable. Everybody worked to- gether and the ease with which we did it was much less because of the fire, but business continued. " The University ' s security staff also underwent a major change of hands in September. Earl Brailey, former director of security, was " terminated. . effective 60 days from Aug. 21, " according to a statement prepared by Bob Henry, director of news and in- formation. Roger Crumpton, former University detective, left to work with the University of Missouri-Columbia police force. James Cremer, former director of security at the University of Tampa-the same university where Owens was president before he came to the University- was named the new director of security. " He was highly recommended by the Tampa police, " Bush said. " He has knowledge, philosophy and understanding in approaching the student-to explain why there are rules, instead of a disciplinary sort of thing. He has thought out the whole job of security and has developed alternatives to ap- proach the problems, if they should arise. " " I would like to change the student ' s attitude about campus safety, " Cremer said. " I think that when I came here it was very low, and I ' m going to concentrate on raising that attitude a little bit. " The administrative positions in the academic areas only exper- ienced one key change. Dr. George English, vice president for academic affairs, took on an assistant. Col. Franklin A. Flesher, former commander of ROTC units at NWMSU as well as Missouri Western State College and former professor of military science at both schools. Flesher assisted with the development and coordination of educational programs, acted as a liaison with business, education and other groups in the service area of the University. He also assisted with the administration of the University ' s graduate center continued intinued m " : DR.

Flesher said his new position would allow him to maintain his close relationships with students. " I ' m looking forward to it because I can keep up my close associations with students that I have had for the past four years, " Flesher said. Holding the fort down on campus in the academics area was English, who was responsible for relocating all of the classes which were lost in the fire. " Fifteen to 20 percent of our academic space was destroyed, " English said, " and we had to do a lot of shifting in Colden Hall. " One of the biggest goals made after the fire was to see that classes ran smoothly when the fall semester began. English said that goal was met. " In August, 80 percent of all of the classes had been rescheduled and by the time the semester began, things were running smoothly. " After re-establishing the ef- fected departments to their former level of efficiency, English planned to develop the honors program and revitalize the edu- cational programs. " Doing the spade work for new programs that need to be deve- 112 ADMINISTRATION loped " was one of the facets of Dr. Leon Miller ' s job as dean of graduate studies. On his list of projects was the development of a Master of Science degree in school computer studies and also the evolvement of an MS degree in secondary education. Miller served as coordinator of the graduate center at Missouri Western, the off-campus graduate courses in the North Kansas City School District, and he coordin- ated the appointment of graduate assistants. He acted as repre- sentative to the Education Con- ference of Elementary and Secondary Educators and served on the State Advisory Council which involved the in-service training of teachers in special education. On campus he was responsible for graduate recruit- ing procedures and for setting up the graduate schedule of classes. " We put out as much or more than any other office, " said Miller. Dr. Phil Hayes, dean of students, acting registrar and director of summer camps, found the chief effect of the Ad Building fire to be " total disruption of operational flow. " " The fire interrupted the summer camp program, created confusion and also, indirectly, affected the compilation of grades and class rosters because of the displacement of the computer, " Hayes said. Hayes ' office moved into Cooper Hall and experienced similar problems in communica- tion. But Hayes was especially thankful that the records kept in the Administration Building were moved out during the fire. " it was several days before we could get everything moved and several more days before we could get everything set back. Fortu- nately, no records were lost. " The man supporting and in- volved in virtually every facet of the administration was Bob Henry, director of news and in- formation. Henry was a part of several committees on campus, including those for money ap- propriations. He also was on call for security when there was no security director. But his chief function was spokesman for the University. " All of these administrative offices are a vital part of a Univer- sity, " Owens said. " Alone they are important, but by working to- gether, which I think ours did, they can accomplish things this University has never seen. " Our administration has not gone through a shake-up, as such, but we have crossed and survived plenty of hurdles.

Owens came to Northwest. Little did he know that in the early years of his presidency he would come face to face with some of the biggest headlines in University history. The headline that altered the normal routine of the entire University, especially the pres- ident ' s office, was the burning of the Administration Building July 24. " Rebuilding has got to be the number one priority, " Owens said. " We hope the legislature will be amicable to our request so that we can go ahead full thrust. " During and after the fire, the University proved there was more to an administration than a building. " You see what people are really made of when something like this happens, " Owens said. " I think the display of time and effort put forth by our administration, the motivation to make sure this institution maintained some kind of normal routine and the ability to operate in temporary and inconvenient conditions proves that an administration goes beyond a building. " Because of the great loss from the fire and the budget cut. 114 PRESIDENT OWENS ' ;. Holding back the tide finances were an obvious priority " A sizeable amount of money is necessary just to aid our emer- gency situation, " Owens said. " We ' re having to cut back everywhere we can. The budget cut didn ' t help matters, but we are going to have to adjust to things. " Beginning his third year as president, Owens has witnessed several transformations, some obvious and others more subtle. " There is considerably less vandalism, " Owens said, " and the sharp turn-around in enroll- ment has not been seen since 1971. The academics also seem a little tougher to me than they used to be " The one thing that has remained steadfast over the years is the University ' s sense of pride. " Most colleges and universities have lost their pride, " Owens said. " When they lose pride in the institution, they lose pride in themselves. Here at Northwest our pride has never stopped. We have one of the most attractive campuses and our facilities are equally attractive. It is not snobbish pride, just deep-down solid pride in the institution and in ourselves. It is this pride which brought alums back to help out after the fire. It is this pride which prompted people to work around the clock cleaning the Ad Building. It is this pride which allowed Northwest to begin classes on schedule. Let ' s face it, we have something to be proud of. " -Cindy Sedler PRESIDENT B D OWENS TAKES a break from gardening.

Higher costs for higher education -Da e Cieseke As inflation continued to soar, it became increasingly hard for the Board of Regents to hold the line on educational costs. As the fiscal year rolled around, so did the annual budget. The University did not receive the amount of money it asked for, as Gov. Joseph Teasdale cut the budget by $200,000. Despite this, the Board tried to keep the programs the same. " We kept our teachers ' salaries up, " said Alfred McKemy, president. " If we want to maintain our faculty, we are going to have to offer them a good salary. " -Dave Cieseke Since faculty salaries were kept the same, the budget was cut in other areas. " The University tried to moti- vate students not to be wasteful, " McKemy said. " That money had to be used elsewhere. " A major area in which the Board tried to save money was energy. McKemy said the University was cutting down on its energy use through a variety of methods. " The temperature was regu- lated in campus buildings, and we economized on the amount of gasoline we used. Unless the trip was absolutely necessary, we didn ' t make it. If we had to go, we tried to make the trip benefit us in a couple of ways, " he said. While the Board was trying to save money, it was hit with an unexpected expense when the Administration Building was dam- aged by a fire July 24. Sixty percent of the building was destroyed. " After the fire, our number-one goal was to try to get school going on time in the fall, " McKemy said. " We had to make sure we had the classrooms available before classes started. " DURING HIS FIRST Board ot Regents meeting, J Nerval Sayler watches a slide show on the Administration Building fire After serving the University as a faculty member and the Educational Foundation ' s president, Sayler was appointed to the Board of Regents in August After the Board achieved its first goal, McKemy said the next step was finding a way to replace lost classroom space One way was to build a temporary building by the bus barn. After its completion, the new building housed KDLX, KXCV and speech pathology, which had been in the Administration Building McKemy said another problem was whether to redo the Ad Building or try to build some- where else. " Since the Ad Building is so traditional, we are going to try to keep it the way it looked on the outside before the fire, " McKemy said. " But we will probably have to build other buildings elsewhere on campus. " Although the fire caused some inconvenience, McKemy said he did not think it threw the University behind. " It hasn ' t hurt us that much. In fact, we are moving ahead more than we planned, " he said. According to McKemy, the approval of the addition of the swimming pool and renovation of Lamkin Gym was a major victory for the Board this year. " It has been a priority of the Board and the University for a long time, " he said. " The fact that we can build a new building is exciting to me.

Dr. Herman Collins, chairman of industrial arts and technology, said lA instructors and students had to work around their lack of equipment. " I would have to say that our greatest problem is lack of equipment. We definitely need funds so we can update and replace our facilities. But until we can, we just have to work with what we have. " Collins said next year did not DURING WEAPONS and marksmanship, two students aim for the target. -- lim MafNpil look much better in the area of facilities. " I think next year we will be basically where we are right now, because any kind of expansion will take funds that we just do not have , " Collins said. In an attempt to cover broader areas of interest, there were a few changes in curriculum. " We have instigated a graphic communications minor and a greater emphasis was put on the architectural development in such areas as solar heating and alternative energy sources, " Col- lins said. Problems stemming from the Administration Building fire were coped with by the home econom- ics and agriculture departments. " The biggest problems we face stem from the fire, " said Dr. Frances Shipley, chairman of home economics. " We have always been a closely-knit depart- ment, and our students felt a DURING THE AFTERNOON milking, Lisa Tyner prepares to milk a cow. -Cindv Scdlf-r great sense of unity. That unity has been greatly hampered since our classes and offices have been scattered around campus. " " We would like to see the home economics department re-estab- lished in one place, " Shipley said. Dr. John Beeks, chairman of the agriculture department, ag- reed with Shipley. " Right now our facilities are our biggest problem because of the Ad Building fire. We are a pretty close department, and right now we are pretty well displaced. As it is, our students don ' t have good contact with their teachers. By next year, we would like to be back in one central location, " Beeks said. The agriculture department added some classes in vocational agriculture and horticulture to its curriculum. It was smooth sailing for the military science department. En- rollment took a sharp jump over last year ' s figures, and Major continued APPLIED SCIENCE 119 Adjusting to the change continued Robert Sauve said the department was handling the increase well. " We aren ' t facing any prob- lems at all at the present. We are able to handle our students adequately right now. " Last April the military science classes were approved as activity credit and could count toward a student ' s required PE hours. The military science department will also consider some class modifica- tions and additions. The nursing department con- tinued its three basic nursing programs, though enrollment was up for the Licensed Practical Nursing, the pre-nursing and the Registered Nursing departments, according to Sue Cille, head of nursing. " Our facilities are adequate now, but if the program continues to grow we are going to need more space, " Gille said. " Health care is still growing, " Cille said. " There is a projected nursing shortage in the 80s, just like the shortage of teachers. They cannot find enough of them, especially for those with their bachelor and master degrees.

I im MdLNcil Dave CieseU ' Who ' s watching the children? Take one director of child development, several aides and helpers and anywhere from 22-36 pre-school-aged children, and you ' ll have a perfect setting for a child development center. " The University ' s child devel- opment center was established in 1968 to help students meet child development course hours, " said Peggy Miller, director of the center. " Since then, a two-year terminal program has been developed. This is to train people who will be working in child care centers and day care centers. " The students who observed, aided or taught in the center went through three phases. First, they learned about the children. AT THE CHILD DEVELOPMENT center, Staci Bohlmeyer works with a pre-schooler Funding for the program came from the home economics department as well as from the state vocational and occupational home economics program. Second, they began to observe the children. Finally, they became active as lead teachers. The center also served under- graduates in a four-year program. Linda Streett, an observer, said that the center was " really enjoyable. It is really worth the time we put in over here. " Other observers said that sometimes the center was hectic, but they all agreed that it made life more interesting. The observers were watching individual students during the course of the day. At the end of the s emester, they wrote case studies of their particular child- ren. They watched their students ' personalities, cooperation, shy- ness or aggression. Rosalie Weiderholt, a practi- cum student, had experience in interacting with the pre-schoolers " This is even better than observing, " said Weiderholt. " Last year we observed many different day care centers, but this one is really the best. It offers a wide variety of activities for the preschoolers. I would recommend it to anyone. " Miller, who had been at the center since 1969, said she based her objectives on creativity. " Creativity is my number-one objective, " said Miller. " Not just creativity in art, but in all areas of expression. I want to help the child to be curious, to encourage him and to let him be original. " Miller and her aides had busy afternoons with their children, but they enjoyed it. The key was flexibility. " I want the children to be flexible, " said Miller. " That ' s one thing adults aren ' t really good at. I want these kids to be able to try another approach if the first attempt fails. Flexibility is the key.

The BeTiavior Science Division re- flected the needs of the time by readjusting many aspects of its department. One such readjustment came in the form of night-time introduc- tory courses in the areas of pohtical science, sociology and psychology. The curriculum be- gan as a service to local residents of Maryville who wanted to begin a degree program or who just wanted to take a class. Dr. Eugene Calluscio, head of the division, said that he hoped these courses " would appeal to the non-traditional student. " The University planned to offer these courses one semester each year. " Maryville is small enough that you would flood the area too quickly if you offered it more often, " said Calluscio. IT .4 --Nicholas CarK. The division also established systematic master ' s degree pro- grams in guidance and counseling and in counseling psychology at Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph, increasing opportuni- ties for individuals interested in those areas. According to Calluscio, the way the program was previously set up was " piecemeal. There was no continued DR JOEL HENDERSON, a guest speaker from San Diego State, talks to psychology and sociology classes.

" Students were able to complete a great deal of the work at St. Joseph, then finish up the few remaining courses at Northwest. The political science depart- ment readjusted by initiating a new public administration pro- gram and putting a criminal justice program into the approval process. One of the most important turnovers occurred at the helm of the department, as Caliuscio took over as new division head in 1979. Caliuscio is a former Air Force academy director of research. " This is a very different kind of job, " he said. " At the academy, the faculty was all military; here there is more emphasis on academics. There they study to be officers; here they go on to a wide spectrum of things. " -LeAnn Keenan PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS go over a new chapter. The Behavior Science Division offered more courses at Missouri Western State College in St. Joseph in an attempt to change its program to meet the times. BEHAVIOR SCIENCE MARTHA COOPER MAKES a point in the symposium on wtimen in higher education, joined by Robin Stern and Irene Huk The symposium was sponsored by the psychology department Nithulas CarKon Dave Cipseke Thinking alike Although many students be- lieved the only thing they had in common with faculty members was direct opposition, a survey revealed a highly significant similiarity of viewpoints and attitudes between the two groups. Dr. Richard Fulton, associate professor of political science, and his public opinion and propaganda class scientifically conducted a survey which revealed the at- titudes shared by faculty and students. During first semester, the survey was conducted using the random sampling technique. " This was done to reflect the viewpoint of the student body, " said Fulton. Computers tabulated the responses from the 225 students and 185 faculty members questioned. " To my surprise, we found there was no significant area of difference between the faculty and students, " said Fulton. AFTER COMPLETING A survey of University students and faculty members, Dr Richard Fulton tallies the results Fulton said the two groups had much the same views The survey, composed of three general sections, evaluated opin- ions on politics, general attitudes toward the University and toward Northwest ' s general studies pro- gram. " Not only was the survey conducted as a class project, it also aided in faculty review of general studies requirements, " Fulton said. According to statistics, both groups believed that instructors ' teaching ability was good. Also, the groups evaluated the Univer- sity as having a good learning atmosphere. On a political level, " (Sen. Edward) Kennedy was the most popular politician, more so for students than faculty, " said Fulton. " But this was before the Iranian crisis, and now they are probably more supportive of (President Jimmy) Carter. " Both students and faculty members supported the Equal Rights Amendment by 70 percent. However, students supported the legalization of marijuana 38 percent, with faculty 33 percent. Responding to the public funding of abortion, students gave 33 percent support, with faculty 40 percent. Students supported gun control by 55 percent, with faculty 63 percent. " Students and faculty identi- fied as liberal had a tendency to be supportive of the public funding of abortion, while those claiming to be conservative opposed it, " said Fulton. Statis- tics also reported 36 percent of the students and 40 percent of the faculty responded as indepen- dent s on the liberal conservative question, which Fulton tends to label as " apathetic. " Even though the survey was conducted as part of a class project, Fulton said its findings were accurate. " There is a reasonable degree of accuracy in the survey, as it was taken with great care and in a scientific process. This was more than a class just going out and asking 15 people certain ques- tions. The answers were viewed and compared scientifically, " Fulton said. —Angel Watson BEHAVIOR SCIENCE 125 1 Taking care of business Turning out quality individuals was the main thrust of the School of Business Administration, ac- cording to Dr. Elwyn Devore, chairman. " We are in very good shape, and we have fine faculty and no trouble producing efficient peo- ple, " Devore said. The department of finance was a key to all business classes and to the business world. " Some knowledge of finance is required in any type of business, " said Johnie Imes, department head. " We want to prepare students to take jobs and to function in a financial manage- ment capacity. " In the department of office administration, Mary Jane Sunk- el, department head, • said its biggest feature was word pro- cessing. " It is a required course, and all business majors will encounter it sometime. It is the latest thing in all offices and is sometimes known as the office of the future, " Sunkel said. Sunkel said the department had proposed an advance course in word processing. Marketing is best known for its research capacities. Dr. Sharon Browning, department head, said students worked on several research projects during the year. " We had four candidates working with the city and finance managers on different economic feasibilities of a better or JANE POE PROOFREADS her copy in shorthand class. expanded airport.

" Last spring students worked with the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce to determine what stores citizens wanted in the new shopping center north of the city. We sent a report to Crown Center and other shopping centers in Kansas City and got people ' s reactions to those stores. They were very complimentary and interested in our results.

SHARON BROWNING tallies up the results of a marketing survey her class conducted The course conducted surveys for Maryviile, the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce, the merchants of Clarinda, Iowa, and area businesses We know what you need Establishing University visibil- ity among the population of Maryviile and outlying communi- ties was one of the marketing research course ' s biggest con- tributions. By working together with the town merchants, the University was able to dispel its stereotyped image of an " ivory tower dealing in theory " Community work also benefited the University by making it visible to prospective students in the area. A creditable marketing re- search class existed on campus, but dealt mostly with mail questionnaires sent to prospective students discussing their aware- ness and attitude about North- west. The bigger projects, including St. Francis Hospital and the Maryviile Daily Forum, were carried on mainly by business professor Dr. Sharon Browning and marketing majors. Browning described the work as " taking the blinders off a horse. The merchant is so close to his business that he can ' t see how the public views it. " Marketing research lent per- spective by providing accumu- lated information from the public regarding the various brand names or products they wanted to see on the shelves and personal opinions of the business itself. The research personnel also looked at where people did their buying and why, if they went out of town to do their shopping, this leakage occurred-whether it was because of price, personnel, selection or public awareness. Cross classification was also a big factor in aiding the business- men. By differentiation between the variables of age, income, education, size of family, sex, length of residency in a given area and occasionally occupation of the public, then determining if there was " mushrooming " in one area or another, it was possible to ascertain where promotion should be directed. Marketing research products included a study for the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce concern- ing the type of business people wanted in a new shopping center, and a study for The Salad Shop restaurant in St. Joseph dealing with public awareness and prefer- ences in the menu They also researched public opinions and preferences in the town of Plattesburg and also for the 55 merchants of Clarinda, Iowa. Maryviile was not excluded from these endeavors, however. " We ' ve done work for almost all the merchants in Maryviile at one time or another, " said Browning. -LeAnn Keenan BUSINESS 129 z.

The July 24 fire destroyed most of the equipment and space that had housed the speech depart- ment. The department was forced to move to several different locations, splitting up what used to be one big happy family. " Our biggest problem after the fire was that we were apart, " said Rob Craig, assistant professor of speech. " The faculty was spread out all over Colden Hall. " Faculty members were not the only parts of the department to be spread out at the beginning of the fall semester. The campus radio stations, KDLX KXCV, were housed in Wilson Hail; and speech pathology was in Hake Hall. This proved to be difficult not only for instructors but for the students as well. " Before the fire, the depart- ment had a very close situation, " Craig said. " The classrooms for broadcasting were only a flight of stairs away in the Ad Building, but they had to go to the industrial arts building (Valk), Horace Mann and Colden Hall for their classes after the fire. The fact the faculty was all over Colden Hall didn ' t help that much either. " " Since we were over in Wilson and the faculty was in Colden, it was harder to get projects done for broadcasting classes, " said Ben Holder, broadcasting major. " The teachers couldn ' t be there to help us on production projects. We were more or less on our own. " While academics might have suffered during the first semester, according to Dr Robert Bohlken, division head, the fire hurt division morale and enrollment for graduate students. " Graduate students were not ready to come to a place that didn ' t have the facilities with which they wanted to continue their educations. Adverse condi- tions deferred students from coming here, " he said. Bohlken said morale was hurt because it took the faculty twice the usual amount of work to prepare for the upcoming fall semester after the fire. " It was physically frustrating because it took that much more work, " he said. " We were not only trying to move stuff from the Ad Building; but we were trying to plan future facilities, work on the upcoming academic year and teach classes at the same time. The morale was really low at that point. " Morale was also low for speech pathology and broadcasting stu- dents. Upon returning to campus, the broadcasters found the new studios in Wilson Hall a far cry from those in the Ad Building. " At Wilson Hall we worked elbow to elbow, " Holder said. " There was no room to do anything. " While the speech department was strung all over campus, the English department was also feeling the effects of the fire. The department had to share its space with the incoming speech depart- ment. " We lost some space and work rooms, " Dr. Patt VanDyke said. " We lost that extra place to run a project for our classes. The department lost a little bit around the edges; and although we were put out a little, they were literally put out. " Although nothing good could come out of the fire, VanDyke said it brought the speech and English departments closer together. " It started getting us to know each other, " she said. " It ' s good because we ' re going to be together from now on. " One way that the two depart- ments were going to be together was the addition of the communi- cations building. The facility was supposed to house KDLX KXCV, speech pathology, the Northwest Missourian and the Tower, as well as broadcasting and journalism faculty. But because of a lack of funds, the journalism segment remained in McCracken Hall. " I was glad that we didn ' t move, " said Cheryl Krell, Mis- sourian sports editor. " I liked having our own building, and I didn ' t want to have to move all of our equipment across campus. " While the journalism students were glad they did not have to move, the broadcasters were anxiously awaiting the new continued ENVY ' S STINC CaEDITORS Andrea Carter and Deb Kelfer and Advisor Craig Goad look over a manuscript for the literary magazine.

" The move greatly increased the morale around the stations, " Holder said. " We had more room to operate in the communications building; but then again, anything would have beaten Wilson Hall. " Despite all of its problems, the division came through and looked toward the 80s with new hope. " The closeness of the group carried us through the first semester, " Craig said. " We could have thrown in the towel and called it quits, but we didn ' t. " JIM SOLHEIM LISTENS to Dr Charles Kovich explain prodecures to Writing Skills Center tutors.

After missing only one day of work following the July 24 Administration Building fire, in which all testing equipment and most files were destroyed, the clinic moved to Hake Hall Spending first semester there, the clinic was then relocated in the new communications building at the northeast corner of campus. Besides moving to new loca- tions, re-establishing records and replacing equipment, the clinic was busy trying to provide services for an overload of clients " There are more clients than we can serve, " said Jane Wegner, clinic supervisor. " We have a waiting list consisting mostly of pre-school children and adults from the community and not a large enough staff to service them all. " The staff is made up of three faculty members and three graduate assistants who serve approximately 40 clients a semes- ter. The clients, ranging from pre-school to adults and Univer- sity residents to community residents, make from one to five visits a week to the clinic for therapy. " We screen Horace Mann, the Child Development Center and 101 and 102 speech students for speech or hearing problems, " said Wegner. The types of problems the clinic looks for are hearing and speech articulation, voice, fluency and language problems. Each client is evaluated, recorded in a series of reports and given a sequence of tests before entering a therapy program. " The basic tests given in a diagnostic evaluation are for articulation and language, " said Marsha Donovan, graduate stu- dent and tutorial assistant. " We test the expressive and receptive language, the oral peripheral, which examines the mouth, oral cavity and tongue, and hearing.

Tomorrow ' s teachers Majoring in education had a number of different meanings in the University ' s College of Educa- tion. In addition to the classes which prepared the student for teaching and workshops in special education, there were activities such as student teaching and library science internships which actually involved the student in the teaching experience. One class was mainstreaming, held at Braymer High School. It was designed to help teachers work with handicapped students. Beginning January 16, this eight-week course involved 32 elementary and secondary teach- ers, counselors and adminis- trators from the surrounding area. " We ' re very pleased with this course, " said Dr. Gerald Wright, assistant professor of elementary and special education. " The teachers at Braymer told us what type of course they needed, and we designed this one specifically for them. " Another aspect of education was student teaching. Students were placed in actual teaching situations with a professional cooperating teacher and an education supervisor who ob- served the student teacher peri- odically. --Dave Gieseke " I enjoyed it and had a great time with the kids, " said Larry Johnson, student teacher at Maryville High School. " It probably helped me three times as much as the education courses in preparing me to teach. " Susan Kraner taught fifth grade students at Washington Middle School in Maryville. " I was scared to death at first, " said Kraner, " but then I really liked it. It showed me a lot of things I never thought of before, and it was good to have an experienced teacher there to help me out when I needed it. It was definitely a good experience. " Library science majors used the Horace Mann library as part of their education experience. Stu- dents with this major were required to do an internship in the library, where they worked elbow-to-elbow with profession- als. " I consider it a good experience for both the interns and the children, " said Dr. Mark Ander- son, associate professor. " Our library far exceeds the minimum requirements for the elementary school, and the student is exposed to a wide variety of materials as well as to children. Also, it is used extensively by the Horace Mann kids, and it is good for them to be exposed to the different personali- ties of a number of different interns. " In addition to providing these experiences for students, the College of Education hosted a workshop November 30 for persons concerned with the continued LIBRARY SCIENCE MAJOR Kerry England sets up a film projector in the Horace Mann library.

Micro-teaching simulates stu- dent teaching and was rated next in importance in the preparation of teachers. The equipment used consisted of a monitor, color camera and a laboratory where the students taped segments, played them back and critiqued their performances as teachers. " I think it ' s a great experience and a lot of fun, " said Suzanne Jones. " Each week we tackle a different aspect of teaching, and there are real people out there. You are actually getting up and doing it. Also, the reinforcement helps when you can see exactly what you look like in the teaching role. " Students were required to make lesson plans and then did one five-minute teaching exercise per week in front of a group of their peers. A different exercise was used each week in an attempt to cover all areas of teaching. Another requirement was a familiarization exercise which exposed the student to the various equipment teachers use, such as tape recorders and movie pro- jectors. " 1 think it is very helpful, " said Andrea Carter, " even though you are limited by the number of students and the time you teach. ANDREA CARTER FILMS Doug Ceer instructing his " class " in micro-teaching. This course aims to simulate actual teaching You can see yourself and can curb any unpleasant habits you have in speaking in front of people. " Because you are teaching in front of people of equal intelli- gence, it forces you to compete in creativity, and this creativity is what will be important once you start teaching. " Without micro-teaching the student would probably take longer before he would be ready to get up in front of the class in student teaching, according to Hemenway. " My own observation is that it gives students the boost of getting started in the teaching role. It ' s a very important part of the education program. " The equipment has progressed from reel-to-reel tapes to the more sophisticated videotape cameras and monitors to better serve the student. The only drawback to the micro-teaching program was the actual time the student got to teach. " It would be great if it could be made longer, " said Hemenway, " but it ' s just a matter of time and space. I feel we utilize this as best we can concerning the number of students who take the course. " Micro-teaching was the pro- spective teacher ' s first encounter with the actual teaching ex- perience and its importance lay in the transition from a student to a teacher. -Mike Crum Together at last I --Carole Patterson Ml ' M ' . - ' - y The art, music and theater departments all crowded into the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building after the loss of space in the Administration Building. It was the first time since the formation of the Fine Arts Division that the three had been housed together. The art department ' s highlight for the year was bringing to campus " The Harmonious Craft- American Musical Instruments Exhibition. " " It w as an honor being able to get this major exhibition since it would only be shown in four places in the country, " said Dr. Robert Sunkel, head of the Fine Arts Division. The approval for the exhibition came after an application to the Smithsonian Institute, security clearance of the Fine Arts Building and grants and funding through the University. The art department expected a large turnout to view the instruments as the exhibition was on display for an entire month in the early spring. The music department hoped to present the opera " The Devil and Daniel Webster " among their scheduled productions. It also did a thorough study of its program and worked on a proposal in making additions to the music curriculum.

Since Gardner was at the University for two weeks, she shared her knowledge and experi- ences with the theater classes. A course in musical comedy theater, which Schultz felt was needed in the program, was added at an opportune time with Gardner able to express her life in musical comedies, Schultz said.

Like other art majors, Miller presented a senior art show her last semester " I ' m really happy with it, " said Miller. " I never thought I ' d make it this far. " The senior art show was the final exhibition presented after a senior review was passed. The review by the staff of art instructors occurred after 80 academic hours were completed. The instructors critiqued the work and decided if a student had enough advanced courses to begin work on the show. " Like a lot of other people, I didn ' t have enough advanced classes before my review, " said Miller. " I had to retake it, and by then I had more than enough experience. " The show was considered a one-hour credit in senior exhibi- tion. It was critiqued by all the instructors, and grades given by each instructor were averaged. Although Miller worked on her show from her junior year on and spent $150 on framing materials alone, she saw the investment as time well spent. " A senior art show wakes you up and makes you motivated to work, " she said. " It gets you to emphasize your special interests. You are discouraged from show- ing a wide variety of work In your show. " The shows stayed up generally for two weeks. Displaying the art was work in itself.

The major change in the division occurred when Dr. John Harr retired as division chairman after 35 years on the faculty. Dr. Harmon Mothershead was named to replace him. After he assumed the chairmanship, Mothershead planned to recruit history majors. " I feel that this is neccessary for the University, " he said. " I want to get history back into its proper perspective in the Uni- versity. " But despite this and the fact the University had no trouble placing Cirlson history graduates, the department experienced a decline in the numbers of majors and minors. Mothershead said students ' at- titudes were responsible for this statistic. " Students consider history a drudgery, and they resist learning it, " he said. According to Mothershead, one reason for this may have been the lack of background in the subject. He said even honor students did not have an adequate history knowledge and that high school history has been taken over by mini-courses. The division tried to counteract this with a major curriculum revision. Plans included creating new courses as well as majors and minors. More audio visual aids were used in the classrooms to supplement learning. Despite the drop in majors and minors, the division held a third-world symposium in March. The symposium dealt with the- study of social and cultural values in today ' s world. A panel of four educators discussed some of the world ' s current problems. " It was billed as an educator ' s conference for high school teach- ers, but it was of general interest to everyone, " said Dr. Roger Corley.

Mother- shead said that in the past everyone looked out for number one. " We worked together instead of everyone trying to feather his own nest, " Mothershead said. The foreign language depart- ment was also changed, as it went beyond a form of communication. Cultures and literatures of the French, German and Spanish speaking parts of the world were stressed, as well as the languages themselves. While the history enrollment dropped, beginning language enrollment was on the upswing. " Language improved the capa- city for careful thought and expression, " Channing Horner said. The philosophy department felt the crunch of decreasing division enrollment when several upper- level courses were forced to cancel because of a lack of interest. Beginning courses such as introduction to philosophy and ethics, on the other hand, were larger than usual. -Kay Gillis ANGELA GONZALEZ LISTENS to French spoken on a language tape in the foreign Language lab.

" " I use the direct method of teaching, which omits the English translation, " said Macias, " be- cause the mind will get lazy and the English translation would interfere with thought stimula- tion. There is always a visual concept, which is very organized and serves as a clue to the Spanish term I want to teach my class. " Macias said any first-year Spanish student enrolled in his class who studied the material presented to him knew more than a four-year student at another university. To show a different concept, Macias slouched into his chair as if his back muscles were aching and moaned the phrase, " Yo estoy causado, " (I am tired). He then held a card before the class, introduced the students to the correct spelling of the term and repeated the correct pronun- ciation. " Acting out each concept of the terms has to be performed with precision, " Macias said. " After the concept is understood, the spelling is introduced. " Macias followed a basic lesson plan from a manual. He spent hours of preparation for each class to make sure his dramatization communicated the correct con- cept. " I could always tell by the expressions on the students ' faces when the concepts were misin- terpreted, " said Macias " The class looked puzzled and quite confused. " Students discovered daily class attendance was a necessity since it was difficult to update them- selves on material they missed. " The students have to be there to see my instruction, as it is all based on visual aids, " Macias said. " My method could teach anyone Spanish, except the deaf and blind. " " Macias ' classes are always interesting and sometimes f un- ny, " said Anita Jenkins. " I especially enjoyed commenting on his questions in Spanish.

More than 50 students enrolled in the program, and the division was forced to find new ways to revise its curriculum. One of the ways was the addition of structure program- ming, an expansion from intro- duction to programming. A management processing degree was also added to the program. " This surge is accredited to the more common use of computers in businesses and in the home, " said Dr. Merry McDonald, program coordinator. " Plus the demand for computer operators in the job market is much greater. " Job opportunities also played an important part in swaying many students in the direction of computers. " Computers are today, " said Carol Palmer, math and computer science major. " 1 wanted to be involved with something that is versatile and vital to all aspects of the changing world. I came here because of the strong program and staff and the good facilities. " Besides revising the curricu- lum, the division set up a micro continued 146 MATH A SRIUI Nl PUNCHES .1 into a computer terminal The lerminals were all located in (;arrett-Strong since the Admin- istration BiiilcllnR firo DR DAVID BAHNEMANN e ' tplains an equilateral triangle to his class.

In this program, mini computers were loaned out to high schools for use by teachers and students to experience the way computers were used. " This is a real service to the schools, " said Dr. Morton Ken- ner, division chairman. " Not only does it keep the University ' s name in the high school classroom, it helps us out in recruiting. " Another way the division tried to recruit prospective students was the Math Olympiad. The Olympiad was an all-day work- shop and contest for high school students in the surrounding area. Teams as well as individuals compete in a variety of math contests with scholarships award- ed to the top winners. " The fact that the students have been on campus and have seen our facilities will hopefully let them know about NWMSU and maybe even get a few of them to come here to school, " said Jean Kenner, coordinator of the event. Past Olympiads have been so successful that the division is thinking about expanding it to a second day, which would include a computer science program. " The purpose of the Olympiad is basically to get in contact with high school teachers and to give recognition to students like those who are in sports, " Kenner said. " The students get to meet our staff, and they get to see what NWMSU is like. " -Allison Stock STUDENTS TAKE NOTES in Dr. David Bahnemann ' s class Getting the bugs out Not exactly flattering is the title " debugger, " the name given to math and computer science majors hired by the math department to act as tutors for computer science students. " We ' re called debuggers be- cause we help them get the bugs out of programs, " said Lori Mullenger. " It ' s a title that was here when I came to Northwest and really fits the work we do. " Debuggers work mainly with the computer programming stu- dents who are able to solve a problem but usually need help applying it to the operating and key punching of the computers. " A large percentage of the problem, " said Mullenger, " is the actual time spent at the computers. Since they don ' t have computers in the classrooms, we try to show them the fundamental techniques of operating the machines. We help the students understand computer language, how to punch it in and how to read the print-out information. " The debuggers gave uncertain students hints on how to solve their problems and steered them in the right direction, but they did not do assignments for them. Most students that sought the debuggers ' help were from the introduction to computer science course. " Basically we try to fill in the gaps of what they cannot figure out themselves. If we find we cannot answer their questions, then we send them back to have it clarified by their instructor, " said Mary Cay O ' Connell. -Allison Stock 148 MATH USING AN ABACUS, JEAN KENNER explains a function to Barb Tiffin Math instructors used visual teaching aids to better explain mathematiral principles MATH 149 Scientifically r speaking In an attempt to improve education and handle a rising enrollment, the Natural Science Division offered new classes and changed its texts and lab books. " Classes were added so a first-time freshman could take biology his first year and not have to wait until his junior or senior year, " said Dr. B.D. Scott, biology chairman. All biology students were met with a change as a lab book was developed. The books introduced one-third new material to the laboratory experiments. " I wanted to upgrade the level of the course, " said Dr. Milton Bruening, associate professor of biology and author of the lab book. " There are a lot of exercises in this book that weren ' t in the other lab book. We don ' t cover the same material each semester. That gives a little more variety. " The introductory exercises in the new lab book were designed to get the students to read the lab material before coming to class, " Bruening said. " The books are designed to motivate the student to do more creative thinking. " Despite the changes, some biology students received de- ficient grades. " The poor grades probably reflect the lack of high school background in biology. Bioscience grades compare favorably to other departments. Overall, our grades are not necessarily lower than other departments, " Scott said. Because of the crowded con- ditions caused by the Ad- ministration Building fire, the SUE PEARSON AND TRAGI BOISEN check the glucose content in fruit juice during biology lab. The biology department changed the lab book, with one-third new material being offered. 150 NATURAL SCIENCE biology department doubled-up labs to accommodate new de- partments occupying Carrett- Strong. Entomology for teachers and aquatic biology were offered for the first time last summer. Entomology, the study of bugs, was open to graduate students, and high school and junior high teachers who had returned to college. " Students are always bringing bugs into the classroom and teachers know little about them, " said Dr. Thomas Sluss. " I felt that teachers should know something about bugs.

Most Natural Science classes had increased enrollment this year Scientifically speaking continued practical knowledge on the sub- ject, especially since few teachers are exposed to entomology. " Being a short course, entomo- logy concentrated on recognizing common insects, where they lived and how to raise them in the classroom. " Short courses of this nature give the working teacher a topic that he wasn ' t taught in his formal education but may be helpful to him, " said Sluss. " This makes him a better teacher. Also, teachers liked the class because they learned a lot in a short time. " Aquatic biology, another new course offered to seniors and graduates, " basically looked at the biology of natural water, " said Dr. Kenneth Minter. " It dealt with collecting river and stream samples and seeing what role they played in the environment. " Looking at the biology aspects of water, the class sampled Nodaway Lake and the 102 River and electro-shocked the river. The course also observed plant and animal life and chemistry of the waters. " It was a graduate course to help a student decide if he wanted to enter aquatic biology as a professional field, " Minter said. Attempting to cope with the current energy problem, chem- istry and geology departments also offered new classes. Fuel for grain was a " light- hearted class of general nature, " said Dr. Dale Rosenburg, pro- fessor of chemistry. " It em- phasized alcohol as a fuel, not to warm the inner man, but to run the car. " The course dealt with the history, science and technology of making alcohol. " It was a hands-on course in 152 NATURAL SCIENCE which students made alcohol, and everyone got a chance to do so, " said Rosenburg. " We didn ' t try to convince everyone that making alcohol was the way to go, or that it would save the energy problem; but after completion of the course, students should have known how to make it. " Energy options of the future, a team effort taught by Dr. Sam Carpenter and Dr. Bob Mallory, included the history of the use of natural resources and the pre- diction of the future of natural resources. The class was divided into the study of either renewal or non-renewal resources. The class objective was " for students to be able to determine the feasibility of a particular energy resource as a viable solution to the energy problem, " said Carpenter. Students took such topics as wind, biomass and solar energy and investigated pros-and-cons as to the utility and feasibility of each. " We hit the top of the energy situation, " said Mallory. " By no means was this a complete course because of the time restraint. " Feedback on the course was positive. " It was very good, and students wanted more depth in some particular areas, " said Carpenter. " For this reason, more classes will be offered next summer. " These classes will include four short courses on nuclear energy, solar energy, coal and environ- mental impact. -Charles E. Smith WITH SAFETY CLASSES on to protect her eyes, Linda Cehrlein writes down data she has just obtained Several new advanced courses were offered by the Natural Science Division. ■Shern Smith Green thumb Winter presented a unique problem for the experimental greenhouse on the top floor of Carrett-Strong. The greenhouse was in the wrong place, said Dr. Milton Bruening, associate professor of biology. Usually, when a greenhouse is built, it IS built in an east-and-west direction because the sun is in the south all winter. This gives maximum sunlight during the winter months. " We don ' t get sunlight until the sun has been up for two hours, but we do get it until it goes down in the evening. We would like to get sunlight as early in the morning as possible because that ' s the coldest part of the day, " said Bruening. " Secondly, you make sure that the greenhouse is free of any obstruction of the sun, and our greenhouse isn ' t. " During the winter, a double-layer cover with plastic sheeting was placed inside the greenhouse. This helped keep the temperature up and was left on until spring break. Summer caused fewer problems because cooling had been improved and fans added. Despite problems, the greenhouse had its advantages. " We can grow many things we would otherwise have to buy, " Bruening said. " It ' s cheaper, and we have them for class. Also, there are certain experiments that require a greenhouse. " Graduate students spent time in the greenhouse growing plants they had collected inside. -Nicholas f ' arl " The purpose of the greenhouse is to grow plants for students to use in plant physiology, plant ecology and general botany classes, " said Bruening. The greenhouse was set up for forest, tropical and desert environments Near the entrance and requiring the most moisture were the plants found in a forest-like area, such as ferns. In the center of the greenhouse was the tropical area. This part housed plant-like sugar cane and pineapples. Farthest from the doorway was the desert environment, which had a large number of cacti. One of the unique plants grown was avage, which blooms only once every 10 years. It grows a six-foot spike, although the plant is short and has needle-spike type leaves. Allocs, another plant in the greenhouse, has a juice that supposedly speeds up the healing of burns. Maintenance of the greenhouse was time consuming and required a lot of work. Plants were continually fertilized, cut and regrown as they outgrew their pots. Students also sprayed plants for insects and watered plants daily. -Charles E.

A major change was that non-PE majors and minors re- ceived academic credit toward their grade point average for activity classes. " The majors and minors have always received academic credit, " Dr. Burton Richey, division head, said. " It ' s the non-majors and non-minors who are benefiting. " Student reaction to the grading change was one of enthusiasm and satisfaction. " If it ' s a requirement it should be figured in the grade point like all other requirements, " Ron Von Dielingen said. " I ' m planning on taking many PE classes, es- pecially if it ' s going to help my grade. " " If you ' re athletically inclined it is going to help, but the classes are becoming more academic rather than a type of relaxation, " Larry Hunt said. Not only was the grading credit changed, but the entire physical education program was reor- ganized as well. The separate departments were dropped, and BARBARA SCHENDEL SHOWS HER first aid class the proper way to treat a head wound both men ' s and women ' s pro- grams were joined into one major division. " We made a broad variety of classes to meet the needs of our majors, " Richey said. " The reorganization meant sitting down and developing one major for everyone. " One unusual class offered was the motorcycle safety class taught by Dr. Gary Collins. The course was put out by the Kawasaki Motorcycle Training Program, and its purpose was to give students complete familiarization with the bike. The course also . taught riding skills and safety regulations. Weather permitting, the students used six motorcycles to practice weaving, circling and turning, as well as minor maintenance. " Usually most of the kids in the class have had little experience with motorcycles, " Collins said. " We tried to familiarize everyone with all the parts of the bike including levers, switches and everything else. " Student reaction to the motor- cycle safety class was one of enthusiasm and eagerness. " It ' s a nice relaxing class between all the requirements and everyday routine, " Dave Minnick said.

" Among the renovation plans were a new pool, a new track surrounding the basketball court and heating and lighting improve- ments to Lamkin Gymnasium. All were hoped to be completed in the next couple of years. Richey credited the faculty for help in both the reorganization and renovation improvements to the new department. " We have a good faculty who are interested in the students, " he said. " We worked hard to make the changes for the betterment of the students.

Although it was offered nation- wide, Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries was in such demand that two sections a semester were offered, according to Sandy Miller, instructor. " For the people who are minoring in coaching, it is a requirement, " Miller said. " But a lot of people take the course as an elective for physical education. " The course is designed to give the student a background in the training of athletes and the care and treatment of various athletic injuries. " Through lab sessions the students learn how to take care of various injuries, " Miller said. " We also deal with the emer- gency procedures they might have to face. " " Sandy teaches everything from blisters to broken bones, " Shelley Sommer said. " We studied basic injuries and how to rehabilitate each one. I learned a lot in the class. " Miller said a majority of the students in the class went on to teach and were able to use their training in the classroom. But Sommer said she had already used some of the things she learned in the course. " I ' m a Kansas City Chiefs ' cheerleader.

After a slow start, the football team made headlines when it won its first out- right conference title since 1974. On the other side, the baseball squad enjoyed a winning regular season only to be disap- pointed at its post-season tournaments. Men ' s and women ' s tennis also experienced victory and defeat. Confusing headlines were made with the coming and going of coaches on the Northwest staff. Four new coaches were named to replace the two that resigned. The ups and downs of coaches and team performances combined to make sports a roller coaster year filled with headlines. ' Changing of the guard " Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. " While many brides search for these things on their wedding day, the Bearcat and Bearkitten sports programs came up with them during the summer and early fall sessions. During the summer, Larry Holley, ' Cat basketball coach, and John Poulson, ' Kitten basketball and Softball coach, resigned. Two screening committees were formed to find replacements. The committees came up with not two, but four coaches. Dr. Lionel Sinn, Wayne Win- stead and George and Virginia Cumm took over the three positions the two men previously held. Sinn became ' Cat basketball coach in J uly, while Winstead and the Cumms were named to their coaching positions in September. Although Winstead was a rookie to the Bearkitten sports program, he was an " old " face on the court to many of his players. " I don ' t feel like I have a new job, " he said. " I have known a good share of the girls on the team for a long time. I have worked with them at summer camps now for many years, so it ' s pretty much a relaxed situation around here. " Winstead was lured out of retirement from Worth County High School in Grant City. He coached there for the last three years and retired to become the high school ' s athletic director. " When I retired last year, I stated the only way I would come back to coaching would be if a good college position opened up and if that college was interested in me, " he said. While Winstead was no stranger to his team, Sinn sup- plied shiny " new " -ness to the coaching staff. Sinn coached men ' s basketball at Bethel College in McKenzie, Tenn. When he left that post to become 160 COACH RESIGNATIONS the head man in the ' Cat program, Sinn was the winningest coach in Bethel ' s history. " Coming to a new basketball program is only as hard as the level of talent and administrative support as well as the strength of the program itself, " Sinn said. " Fresh conditions and situations aren ' t what make a change like this hard. " The third and fourth new coaching staff members were " borrowed " from the Maryville sports scene. The Gumms have coached area girls ' Softball teams for the last nine years. They were hired on an interim appointment, part-time basis, according to Sherri Reeves, assistant athletic director. " We know what some of the girls can do on the field, " Virginia Gumm said. " We ' re going to try to do as good a job as we can while we ' re here. By the end of the year, we will have seen how it went and then we will know if we have the time to do it next year. " While something old, new and borrowed arrived on the coaching scene, Holley and Poulson were somewhat " blue " in leaving the University. " I was not unhappy here, " Holley said. " If I had been, it would have made the decision easier for me. " Holley resigned to become the head basketball coach at William Jewell, his Alma Mater. Holley called the decision the most diffi- cult he had ever made. " I wasn ' t looking for the job, " Holley said, " but I knew that whatever decision I made was going to be the right one. I regret leaving this program, and I ' m going to miss it. But I feel that I made the right decision, and my family and I are looking forward to Jewell. " Poulson resigned because of a matter of circumstances, according to Reeves. Poulson ' s wife was the women ' s basketball coach and men ' s and women ' s tennis coach at Lawrence Univer- sity in Appleton, Wis., and Poulson wanted to be with her. " It was very difficult for them, " Reeves said. " When no job opened up for her here, they decided it would be more possible for him to find a job there. " In his letter of resignation, Poulson said he and his wife had given a lot of thought to their situation before they made a move. " My wife and I have given care- ful consideration to our situation and feel for the good of all con- cerned it is necessary that we live and work in the same area, " he said. " I have enjoyed my three years here at Northwest and have enjoyed the friendships and associations I have made.

The season started in Florida where the Bearcats lost their first two games in St Leo but came back to win two of the next three, including a 4-2 victory over nationally-ranked Eckerd Tritons. We lost because we had to practice inside, " said Mark Smith. " We hadn ' t practiced outside, and we didn ' t even know how far we could hit the ball ' Northwest returned after a shaky 2-3 start to prepare for the oncoming season and conference opponents. When play resumed two weeks later, the losses continued with the Missouri Tigers taking a double-header at Columbia. It wasn ' t until a double-header sweep of Creighton, 5-4 and 4-3, that Northwest started winning consistently. The Bearcats won 10 of their next 11 and 23 of their next 25 games. Players accounted for the winning streaks in different ways. ' We knew we could put it together, " Bob Consoulin said. " I was really pleased with our pitching, and the weather was nice for a change. " While Consoulin credited the pitching. Bill Barton said, " The hitting started coming around, and the defense got better. If anyone was down, somebody was always there to pick him up " The completion of the regular season brought the Bearcats the Northern Division title and a trip to Springfield for the MIAA Conference Championship Series. The opponent was Southwest Missouri State, and a best-of- three series decided the cham- pion. Northwest dropped the first game 8-5 but rebounded to win the second game 4-2 in a must-win situation. The third game was a see-saw slugfest that featured 34 hits. The Bearcats jumped out to a 6-3 lead but fell behind 8-6 after seven innings. In the ninth, Northwest managed a late rally to tie the score at eight and send the game into extra innings. A run in the 10th gave the Bearcats a slim 9-8 lead and victory seemed to be near. With one away in the bottom of the 10th, however, disaster struck. A walk and four successive singles gave the Bears two runs and the conference title. " After our win, they were down and ready to be beaten, " Consoulin said. " Nothing hurts more than going into the 10th a winner and coming away a loser. " Northwest also participated in the Division II North Central Regional in Springfield. Two " Dave Cieseke Straight losses to Missouri-St. Louis, 5-3, and Southwest Mis- souri State, 7-5, eliminated the Bearcats and ended another 20-win season. Six Northwest players earned all-MIAA honors on the confer- ence teams. First team picks were pitcher David Pfeiffer, catcher Bill Sobbe, shortstop Cary Caetti and designated hitter Smith. Second team selections were pitcher Tom Franke and third basemen Con- soulin. Northwest also fared well in the J une free agent draft by the major league. Sobbe was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Caetti by the Minnesota Twins and Pfeiffer by the Baltimore Orioles. Even though Northwest had a winning season, many players felt disappointed about not winning the conference or ad- vancing farther in the regionals. " The people we had were excellent quality, " Smith said. " It ' s disappointing that we didn ' t go as far as we could have. " Summing up the season. Barton said, " It was a good year by normal standards, but we had too much drive and competition to settle for second best.

The victory was a 5-2 win over New Mexico State. " There were players still playing basketball and we didn ' t have our head coach, " Cheryl Nowack said. " Starting off 1-9 was a damper because we had to fight back. " After the road trip the team swept a double-header from Missouri-Columbia and proceed- ed to the Southwest Missouri Invitational in Springfield. There, the ' Kittens won two out of four, including a 6-5 victory over 1978 national tournament third place finisher, Minnesota. Later in the season, after losing their first game of a double- header against Creighton, the ' Kittens played what was prob- ably their most exciting game all year. With the score 0-0 after the regulation seven innings In the second game, the two teams headed into extra innings. It was not until -the 15th inning that Nowack hit a towering double that scored Terry Graham from second base with the winning run in a dramatic 1-0 victory. " They beat us the game before and the excitement had built up in the second, " Cindy Schieber said. The ' Kittens completed the regular season with an 11-1 win over Tarkio, then headed to Springfield for the MAIAW State Tournament where they were seeded second. They got off to a good start, beating Stephens, Southwest Baptist and Central Missouri, but encountered trouble in their next game when they met No. 1 seeded Southwest Missouri State. The Bears only scored one run, but it was enough to beat the ' Kittens in a tough 1-0 loss With another loss meaning elimination, the ' Kittens met Tarkio, a team they had beaten twice during the regular season. Tarkio scored early with two runs in the first and the ' Kittens could not come back, dropping the contest 2-0, eliminating them from the tournament Although the hitting and a tough schedule did take its toll, many players felt they were a better team than the record showed. " We were a sound team and better than our record, " Nowack said. " We just weren ' t a hitting ball club.

A fast start and a slow finish Outstanding performances were abundant, but they were not enough to lead the men ' s and women ' s track teams to high finishes in their conference meets. Throughout the season, coaches Richard Flanagan and Laurie Meyers Potter received top performances from their track- sters. Regardless of this, both squads finished no higher than sixth place in conference meets. The most outstanding perform- ance of the season was turned in by Vernon Darling. Darling led the ' Cat team throughout the season and capped off the year with a second place finish in the NCAA Division II championship. He later competed in the Division I championship but did not qualify for the finals in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. " This was quite an opportunity for Vernon, " Flanagan said. " He was an excellent track man for us. " School records were set by Darling, Tim Albers, Bob Kelch- ner, Dave Montgomery, Ted Coudge, Tim DeClue and Charlie White. Three of these records occurred in the field events, traditionally a weak area. " We got stronger in our field events this year, " Flanagan said. In fact, the ' Cats got so strong they placed high in the conference meet in several of these events. Coudge won the discus, while White finished second in the shot put. DeClue finished third in the high jump. Despite these high finishes, Flanagan was disappointed with his squad ' s performance in this meet. " I was pleased with all of our performances except con- ference, " he said. " If we could have gotten a good performance from some of our guys, we could 166 TRACK have finished as high as second. " Flanagan and White explained why the team did not do as well as they had expected. " We had been out of school for a week, and it was hard trying to keep our guys around, " Flanagan said. " One of our sprinters, Randy Sandage, had to go home to work and missed the conference meet. " " Keith Youngblood was out for the meet, and that hurt us because he was one of our top scorers, " White said, " plus the conference teams got tougher as the season went along. " At the start of the outdoor season, no team looked tough for the ' Cats. They won their first three outdoor meets and one later in the season. They also placed second in their own invitational, as well as taking third in the Mule Relays. " We looked really good all year long, " White said. While the ' Cats may have looked good to White, the Bearkittens also looked good to Potter at times. " At the Emporia State meet we really looked good, " she said. " We just walked away with the meet. " But despite this early season victory. Potter said her team peaked too soon in the season. " We seemed to peak too early and at the wrong time, " she said. " By the time conference and regionals came around, we were burned out. " Potter explained another reason for the poor showing in the conference meet. " We just lacked numbers and JILL EBERLY STRAINS FOR the finish of the 440-vard dash. Although the ' Kittens were mainly freshmen and sophomores, they broke several school records depth in a couple of events. We didn ' t have too many high and long jumpers, " Potter said. " We also suffered because of the lack of experience at the college level. Most of our top runners were sophomores and freshmen. " These underclassmen set sev- eral school records and placed high in the conference meet. Chris Bywater set a record in the 200-meter dash, while Vicki Gordon placed third in two events at the conference meet. —Dave Gieseke Men ' s Track Women ' s Track ESC 1st Emporia St. 1st NWTri. 1st Mo.

DAN RAIDT RETURNS A serve to his opponent. Raidt, a freshman, was the number-one player most of the season. 168 MEN ' S TENNIS Trying to regain the conference title they held for seven straight years isn ' t easy. Unlike last year, the ' Cats ' problem was inexperience and they found themselves. . . Stuck in another rut Shem Smith Inexperience and only two returning lettermen combined to trouble the Bearcat tennis team, causing it to finish second in the conference for the second straight year. Early season nervousness, in- jury and being unaccustomed to playing conditions started North- west off to an uneasy beginning. Coach John Byrd explained why the natters lost five of their first nine matches. " The guys had first-year jitters and realized their opponent didn ' t beat them--they beat them- s elves, " he said. " Individually we lost some very close matches. " Finally after shifting positions and getting some confidence under their belts, the Bearcats started winning consistently. Be- ginning with a 7-2 win over Creighton, Northwest proceeded to win seven of its last nine matches, losing only one and tying another. Victories in the stretch included Creighton, Cen- tral Missouri State, William Jewell and Doane. Both the loss and the tie came against Drake in separate matches. Many players put together long individual winning streaks during the second half of the season, which greatly contributed to the team ' s success. One of those players, Dan Raidt, accounted for the turn- DAVID MAY LOBS A toss to his opponent The Bearcats finished second in the conference for the second straight year around. " Everything started to click. If one guy played well, everybody played well. " One special match for the ' Cats was the 8-1 win over Doane because it avenged an earlier 8-1 defeat to the same team. " We redeemed ourselves in the Doane match, and it made the kids start to think they could do it, " Byrd said. After finishing the regular season at 11-6-1, the young Northwest team traveled to Springfield for the MIAA confer- ence tournament. When pre- liminary rounds were over, the Bearcats had three singles players and three doubles teams in the finals. The singles players were Raidt, Henry Abt and Tom Jackson, while the doubles finalists were Abt-Raidt, David May-Rea Laflin and Randy Ar- nold-Mark Davis. Ironically they all faced South- west Missouri State opponents, which had entries in every final. Southwest proved to be too tough for everyone, including the Bearcats, winning every match in both singles and doubles compe- tition. Byrd ' s squad did finish second, however, ahead of third- place finisher Southeast Missouri State. " We thought we would do all right at conference, " Raidt said. " We ' d heard a lot about Springfield, and some of our players were psyched out. " Byrd was pleased with the conference results and felt his young team did well considering Southwest ' s overall depth. " The younger guys withstood the pressure very well up to a point, " he said. " Some of it was jitters, and some of it was that they just played better players. " Many players finished the season sporting winning records in both singles and doubles competition. Double figure win- ners were singles players Abt, 14-7, Laflin, 12-7, May, 11-9 and Raidt, 14-5. Doubles teams records were May-Laflin, 11-9 and Raidt-Abt, 15-4. Both improvement and pro- gress were noticed, but inex- perience was still the main drawback that kept the ' Cats from having a better record and overall year. " We should have had a better year, " Raidt said. " The guys who did the best were the guys who had the most experience.

Both teams encountered stiff com- petition from a tough schedule. In volleyball, the ' Kittens faced tough opponents from the start. The team opened the season at the Kansas State Invitational where they didn ' t win a match. " We were outclassed, " said Mary Maioney. " The competition was a higher caliber of ball. " It wasn ' t until their sixth match that the ' Kittens started to win, beating the University of Mis- souri-Kansas City in three games. The victories continued and helped the ' Kittens to second- place finishes in the Wichita State Invitational and their own Bear- kitten Invitational where they lost to a strong University of Neb- raska-Omaha team in five games in the championship. " We played well in our tournament all the way to the end, " Miriam Hellman said. " That ' s a real disappointment to play five games and lose. " Consistent winning continued until Missouri Western beat the ' Kittens in a tough, but important, loss. The match went five games, 16-14, 14-16, 15-10, 11-15, 15-10, and marked the first time the ' Kittens had won a game from the Lady Griffons. " Every year we try harder and harder to beat them, " Heilman said. " The whole team was prepared for the match and we all concentrated. " The remainder of the regular season consisted of various matches along with appearances in the Craceland Invitational, the Tennessee-Martin Tournament, where they finished second behind Arkansas State, and the Central Missouri State Mini- Tournament. Starting with two losses in the CMSU tourney, the ' Kittens hit a rough spot and 170 VOLLEYBALL WOMEN ' S TENNIS ended up losing five straight matches before heading into post-season play. " Injuries hurt us at the end of the season, " Coach Pam Stanek said. " We played our last eight matches without Mary Maioney, one of our top setters. " After the regular-season the ' Kittens headed for the Missouri AIAW Division II Tournament wh ere they were seeded third. The first match was a loss to Missouri Western, but the ' Kit- tens came back to defeat William Woods and Southeast Missouri State in their next two matches. A second loss came against Central Missouri Sate, the eventual winners of the tournament. One more loss meant elimination for the ' Kittens. That loss came in the next match against the University of MIssouri-St. Louis, and a frustrated ' Kitten team finished fourth. " It was such a letdown to get fourth, " Heilman said. " We realized Missouri Western and CMSU were tough; but if we had " Nicholas Carlson played the best we could have, we could have done much better. " Disappointment did not last long, though, because the team was invited to participate in the AIAW Region 6 Division II Tournament. " We were very happy to be invited to regionals, " Stanek said. " We were one of two teams from seven states that were asked to participate. " The ' Kittens went 1-4 In their pool, which proved to be the toughest. Their only win came against Minnesota-Duluth, the eventual regional champion. " It was a well-balanced tourn- ament but bizarre because all the teams that were supposed to be winning were losing, " Maioney said. " Beating the number-one team made it worth going. " Like the volleyball team, a LANITA RICHARDSON TRIES TO block a spike in a home volleyball match. Richardson and the ' Kittens placed fourth in state competition. their leagues tough schedule bothered the Bearkitten tennis team, but inexperience and injuries were other reasons they only had one win against 11 losses " We were basically the same level of players, " Pam Crawford said. " We didn ' t have enough depth " The only victo ry came against St. Mary ' s of Kansas, 6-0, in the second match of the season. " After our win, " Crawford said, " 1 didn ' t think we were going to lose all the rest, but I didn ' t think we were going to do outstanding either. " Later in the season, the ' Kittens played in the Missouri Western Tournament but failed to score any points and finished in last place. The losing pattern in the second half of the season was largely attributed to injuries and tough opponents. " Because of injuries, people were having to move up and doubles partners were switching around, " Jill Porterfield said. " Everybody had to move up and play somebody better than they were used to playing. " After losing their final match to Nebraska-Omaha, the Kittens went to the MAIAW Small College Tournament hoping to avenge some of their earlier losses. But one by one, the ' Kitten players were eliminated and ended up in 10th place without a match victory. " The state tournament was fun but injuries hurt us, " Stanek said. " If we ' d had maybe one win, it wouldn ' t have been so bad. ' Porterfield also said the tourn- ament was a disappointment for DURING THE MISSOURI Western match. Dawn Austin backhands a return.

Even though the ' Kittens did manage only one win, both the team and the coach felt their schedule was too tough and their final record didn ' t reflect the closeness of many of their matches.

" MIAA Coaches Pick Bears to Win Title " in the August 8 edition of the Kansas City Times. But despite the pre-season pre- dictions and a dismal 0-11 season last year, the Bearcats posted a 6-5 record and finished as MIAA Conference champions. " We just never knew how to win, " Rick Tate said. " We knew we were capable and had the confidence to come back after we were knocked down. " The 1979 season started at Augustana, where Northwest lost 13-23. Although they lost again the next week to Pittsburg State, many team members felt good about the beginning. " We were seeing a lot of improvement, " Dave Toti said, " and all we needed was that first win under our belts. " In the University of Nebraska- Omaha game, the third consecu- tive loss was recorded, but Coach Jim Redd voiced approval of his team ' s performance against a fine Maverick team. " The kids fought all the way, " Redd said. " We felt we could have a good football team after the UNO loss. " The long-awaited victory finally came to the Bearcats the next week when they defeated Fort Hayes State, 17-7. The win was the first for the ' Cats after experiencing 15 consecutive loss- es over three seasons. " We knew we could beat Fort Hayes, " Tate said. " After we won, there was mass hysteria.

The ' Cats got off to a good conference start and beat the Mules, which ended a seven- game conference losing streak. " The CMSU game was a big boost because we knew we could win, " Toti said. " That win lifted us up for the rest of our games. " The remainder of the season consisted of conference games. The next opponent, Southwest Missouri State, proved to be the most important to the Bearcats ' confidence. The Bears, defending conference champs and pre- season picks to win the MIAA title again, hosted the Bearcats in Springfield, where the ' Cats had not won since 1960. The Bearcats took an early lead in the game and were ahead 24-7 at the half. Southwest, surprised by the ' Cats ' first-half dominance, could not manage to defeat the charged- up Bearcats. Northwest won the game 31-22 and boosted their conference mark to 2-0. " We beat them all over the field, " Charlie White said. " It was a turning point because once we beat Southwest, we knew we could beat anybody. " The Bearcats went on to beat Northeast Missouri State and regain the Hickory Stick before tromping Missouri-Rolla, 26-0. At this point the Bearcats were 4-0 in the conference and one win away from at least a tie for the conference title. With the knowledge that they were so close to the conference championship they were not supposed to win, the players became anxious and impatient for the next game and the chance to prove to everybody that they knew how to win. " We knew we had to win one of the last two games, " White said. " We wanted to get it over with. " The Bearcats ' first chance to clinch the title came in their final home game against Lincoln and proved to be the only chance they needed. The ' Cats scored 28 points in the first half and had a comfortable 42-15 lead after three quarters. As the celebration began. Northwest finished off Lincoln; and when it was all over, Northwest Missouri State was the conference champion. " The Lincoln win was a very joyous occasion, " Redd said. " We had a great sense of accomplishment and reward. " A loss in the final game to Southeast Missouri State spoiled the ' Cats ' chances of a perfect 6-0 conference record, but the confer- ence title was the main accomp- lishment in the team ' s final 6-5 overall finish. " It is really nice knowing we won the conference, " White said. " I knew we had the team to do it. " But how did the ' Cats turn the season around after losing their first three games? " We changed a lot in the system. Coach Redd gave our offense a new look and im- plemented a new defense. But above all we stuck together and played like a team, " Brad Boyer said. " We jelled together this year, " Randy Sandage said. " Everything just seemed to fall in the right place. " Besides the conference cham- pionship, the ' Cats earned other awards and were well represented on the MIAA all-conference team. First team representatives were offensive tackle Robert Chauza and running back Donald Lott. Nine ' Cats were selected to the second unit, and nine players made the honorable mention unit. " It was a great team effort, " Redd said, " and we look at the honors as a reflection of the continued 174 FOOTBALL A PITTSBURG STATE RUNNER just passes by Wayne Allen s oiitstrelchcd arm Allen was a mam factor tor the Cats ' defense that only allowed IIS yards rushing a game DONALD LOrr BREAKS A tackle and goes for more yardage The freshman running back from Florida put a little more punch into the Cats ' running attack and he was named to the first team all-conference squad FOOTBALL 175 From rags to riches continued closeness of the team.

The Bearcats placed third in conference, yet could do no better than 20th out of 22 squads at the national competition. " There were a lot of things you could look at that affected our finish at nationals, " said Coach Richard Alsup. " They all seemed insignificant at the time, but afterwards they weren ' t. " One of the main things was that the ' Cats were expecting hot weather for the meet held in FRESHMAN MARK FROST strains for the finish Coach Richard Alsup said he used all 22 team members in the first three meets of the year and that this action hurt the team in the long run. " Dave Ciesekc Riverside, Calif. Before the meet, Alsup told his runners to go out easy and come on strong at the end. " We were well back at two miles, " he said. " Then the next four miles they really moved out. The guys passed as many as 30 runners. They all had expectional last four miles. " " Our tactics were off, " Bob Kelchner said. " The course was at sea level and there were no hills. We had no chance to make up the ground we lost at first. We lost it by going that easy. " Dave Montgomery was the top finisher for the ' Cats in the meet. He placed 39th. The rest of the squad was grouped together back in the pack. Kelchner, Steve Klatte, David Sleep and Brian Murley finished from 102nd to 113th. The conference meet was different, though. Six runners placed in the top 20, and the ' Cats finished third in the meet. Klatte and Murley were both in the top 10, while Sleep, Mont- gomery, Kelchner and Chris Ross also placed high. " Conference was totally differ- ent from nationals, " Alsup said. " Our seniors went out and really ran hard, staying with the leaders. That hurt them at the end of the race. " Before the conference meet, the highlight of the season was the Missouri Intercollegiate meet. The ' Cats won the meet, with Kelchner taking first. At the start of the year, Alsup said his team was close to Southwest Missouri State and Central Missouri State, the eventual top finishers at confer- ence. " We knew we could compete against these two schools, " Alsup said. " Personnel-wise, we had as AT THE START OF their only home meet, four Bearkittens jockey for a position Only six women were on the squad during the season good a team as Southwest and Central did. In the first three meets of the year I involved all 22 team members. That hurt us because the team just didn ' t gel together. The team didn ' t benefit, but the individuals did. " The Bearkittens came within nine points of capturing third place in their conference meet but had to settle for fourth. Sheryl Kiburz finished seventh, while Vicki Cordon placed ninth " It was our best meet, " said Coach Laurie Potter. " We ran real well, and I think we peaked for the meet. " But the regional meet was a different story for Kiburz, Cordon and Roberta Darr. Kiburz could only finish 39th, while the other two finished well back " " lt " s hard for the runners to peak for two important meets in a row, " Potter said. " Their run- ning showed the first two miles were good, but the last mile wasn ' t. They didn ' t have the endurance necessary. " Potter said this and the fact that only six women tried out for the team were disadvantages all season long. " Everybody was automatically assured a spot on the team, " she said. " Even though it was pretty much a fair season compared to last year, it was kind of a letdown to me. " I don ' t really know why that happened because the training was similar to last year. But I guess everybody else improved just as much as we did, " Potter continued. -DaveCieseke Men ' s CC Women ' s CC Central Mo 3rd Cen Mo 2nd ISUOpen 5th Western II 5th Doane Invit 5th NW Invit. 3rd Mo Inter 1st UNO 2nd SWMSU 3rd NEMO 3rd NEMO 2nd MAIAW 4th MIAA 3rd Nationals 20th CROSS COUNTRY 179 AFTER TYING UP A Northeast Missouri State player, Crale Bauer also wins the tip.

And despite the team ' s best record in 10 years, the Bearcat basketball team did not get the regional bid that it was hoping for. " We were in a position to accomplish something that had never been accomplished here before, " said Dr. Lionel Sinn, first-year head coach. " We went into the last week of the season with a 16-8 record, and if we would have won the last three games, we would have had the most wins in 30 years and a possible shot at a post-season tournament bid. But we just could not get the job done. " The last three games of the season were a stunning home- court loss to Rolla and two road defeats to Northeast Missouri State and Lincoln. The ' Cats got behind early in the first half of the Rolla game and the Miners ' 75 percent shooting in the second half kept them pinned down According to Sinn, three starters had the flu and were not as effective as they had been. " We weren ' t physically 100 percent because a lot of guys had colds and weren ' t feeling well, " said Mark Yager. " With a little luck and a little better fortune we could have won one if not both of those last two road games, " Sinn said. " But the season ' s finish should not over- shadow the good things that happened during the year. " The season started out the same way it ended-with a defeat. That defeat was as stunning as the Rolla loss. Playing in their own Ryland Milner Tournament, the ' Cats opened the season against Westminster. Northwest was up- set 66-60 by Westminster, send- ing them into the consolation bracket of the tourney. " We didn ' t execute and it was a mental letdown to lose that opening game, " said Crale Bauer. " But losing the first game was a lesson for us. It got the team ready for our next games. " " It was a rather unfortunate start, " Sinn said. " The team and 1 were trying too hard. There is nothing worse than being in your own consolation bracket. " It might have been bad, but the ' Cats made the most of it by defeating ex-coach Larry Holley ' s William Jewell team. The ' Cats had an excellent second half, one of the best of the season, according to Sinn. ' The night before (West- minster) was a big blow to us, " said John Fay, " and we learned a lesson the hard way. We played the type of ball we ' re supposed to the next day. " Things continued to go well for the Cats as they went on the road for the first time. Seventeen straight losses on the road haunted the team, but in what Sinn called the most important game of the year, the ' Cats finally erased that memory, defeating Missouri-St. Louis 73-62. " We got that monkey off our backs by defeating UMSL, " Sinn said. " We played with real intensity and desire, and this game was a key part to our season. " During Christmas break, the ' Cats went south for the winter and played Division I teams Lamar and Houston Baptist. The ' Cats played well in both contests, outscoring both squads from the field, but the opponents ' free throws hurt the Northwest team, as the Texans hit 27 more charity shots. " We found that we could play against anybody after the Texas trip, " Sinn said. One thing that kept the ' Cats in most of their games was the new defensive style of the club. When Sinn took over, he decided to continued WHILE 4ARK ADAMS looks for a pass, Mark Yager pulls up for a shot Yager was known for hi s passing this year, as he set a Cat single season record for assists It was a toss-up continued stress defense early. It paid off, as the ' Cats became the best defensive unit in six years. Going into conference play, the ' Cats had held their opponents to just 33 percent from the field. At this point, Sinn was pleased with his club ' s performance. " Our team ' s defense carried us for a big part of the year, " Sinn said. " Coach Sinn improved our defense and offense immensely, " Lamont Lofton said. " He made us DURING THE LINCOLN game, Melvin Tyler leaves the ball behind Tyler was one of three ' Cat starters who had the flu during the Rolla home game that the ' Cats lost 75-65. think on the court and learn to recognize things more. " Defense continued to carry Northwest right into the MIAA tournament. For the first time in five years, the ' Cats did not finish in last place. In the opener, the team came from behind and beat Missouri Southern 71-68. Then in the semi-finals they defeated the host team. South- west Missouri State 68-67 in overtime. That victory elevated the ' Cats into the championship game, but there was not much to cheer about there, as they got bombed by Central Missouri State 94-55. " It was nice to win the first tournament game in five years, " Sinn said. " The overtime win against Southwest and getting into the championship game was the highlight of the season, but the game itself wasn ' t. Against Southwest we were playing at an emotional and physical high and the next night we just bottomed out. " The ' Cats would have two other tries at Central, the NCAA Division ll ' s top-ranked team, but afterward the taste of defeat was still in the ' Cats ' mouths. In the next meeting between the two clubs. Central prevailed 67-62 in Maryville, and defeated the ' Cats again 69-66 at Warrensburg. Despite these losses the Bearcats came away with a 5-7 conference record and a 16-11 overall record. Included in that record were five victories on the road. " For a program that has had a problem winning on the road, we made a pretty good stride in that direction, " Sinn said. The games, whether won or lost, were mainly close ones all season long. " Almost every game was a toss-up, " Sinn said. " We won a lot of close games, but we needed to win more of those close games, especially those that you ' re not supposed to win on the road. " The ' Cats were close all right, but not close enough to go over the hump and achieve a first. -DaveCieseke COACH LIONEL Sinn and Bearcat team members watch the final seconds of the Rolla game tick away.

" I was really pleased with the way the season went, " Julie Chadwick said. " We played some really good teams and beat some really good teams. " Alterations in the Bearkitten schedule included adding two Division I schools to season play and dropping three Division II schools from the line-up. Another disadvantage was the small number of home games versus the many road appearances the squad had to make. " Since Christmas, all we ' ve played were tough schools, " Patty Painter said. The team captured first-place in the Ryland Milner Tournament early in the season by defeating Central of Iowa 77-59 for their third consecutive tourney title. " Our competition was better, " Chadwick said. " It ' s always nice to win your own tournament. " All of the season ' s games were important to the team and coaches, but some were more important and memorable, wheth- er they were wins or losses. Early in the season, the Bearkittens traveled to Carbondale, III., to face SlU-Cardondale, the defend- ing Illinois state champions and a team which had beaten the ' Kittens 58-43 in their first game of the year.

" Beating Southern Illinois was a definite high for me because we beat them handily; and after the game the kids said, ' Hey we can be good, ' " Coach Wayne Win- stead said. " From then on, we played with more confidence. " Winstead was a new face around the women ' s team this season, but he said being a first-year coach presented no problems and that he felt very comfortable in his college coach- ing situation.

" Before the Iowa State game we were ranked fourth in the nation in rebounding among Division I schools, " Chadwick said. " That was quite an accomplishment, considering we had no starters over six feet tall. " Another Bearkitten strength was reserves coming into the game and doing a good job. " We had a lot of good players who could come off the bench and play well, " Walter said.

" We had trouble early gaining the confidence we needed of- fensively, but we gained it as the year went along, " he said. Patty Painter made news during the season when she broke various school records and lead the team in several statistical categories. She moved up to the number three spot on the Northwest all-time scoring list, led the team in assists (76), steals (54), was the first junior to surpass the 1,000-point standard and broke the Bearkitten single- season scoring record with her 26-point performance against Iowa late in the season. " I didn ' t realize I ' d broken the single-season record until they took me out of the game, " Painter said. The end of the season brought the sub-regional tournament in Lincoln, Neb. For the Bearkittens to advance, they had to finish in one of the top three places or be one of two teams picked at large to fill out the eight-team regional bracket. " 1 think we ' ll do real well in sub-regionals and regionals, " Walter said. " Everybody ' s going to have to play well. " Even though the Bearkittens encountered a tough schedule, both Winstead and his players felt pleased with their outcome and their performances against better competition. " We ' ve had an exceptional season, " Winstead said. " People didn ' t expect us to do as well as we did. " " 1 think we really had a good record for our schedule, " Walter said. -Tom Ibarra 1 Women ' s Basketball 19 wins 3 losses SIU 43-58 Creighton 76-54 Pittsburg St. 65-62 Central Mo. 56-80 Wichita St. 59-45 SWMSU 75-62 Tarkio 63-59 Nebraska 67-72 Cen. of Iowa 77-59 So.

WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL 187 Wrestling may be harmful to your health Injuries hampered the Bearcat wrestling team this season, and a tough schedule didn ' t help mat- ters as the grapplers finished with a 5-8-2 dual record and a fourth- place finish at the conference tournament. " It wasn ' t a very good year because of injuries and our schedule was tougher, " Terry Lenox said. The season started on a good note as the team took first at the Craceland Invitational. One un- usual thing about the tournament title was that the Bearcats had no individual champions, yet they placed third or better in all 10 weight classes. " We were solid all the way through at Craceland, " Lenox said. DURING THE WAYNE STATE match, Brian Anderson tries to get out of his opponent ' s hold. The Bearcats lost to Wayne State in their final home match. --Dave Young The Craceland Invitational was possibly the only match where the entire team was healthy and uninjured. " We had our total team at Craceland, but after that we lost about four starters to injuries and they had to try to come back later in the season, " Jim Shemwell said. The wrestlers proceeded to lose their next three dual matches before they finally registered a victory over Midland and tied Southeast Missouri State in a four-team home match. A definite disadvantage to the dual match schedule was the lack of home matches, a disadvantage that many team members felt hurt the squad. " The away matches are harder because we have to take long trips, then try to concentrate on our match, " Lenox said. Invitationals and tournaments were also part of the wrestling season, and the Bearcats faced some pretty stiff competition. In the Central Missouri State In- vitational, the team finished sixth in a field of eight teams that included Eastern Illinois Univer- sity, the 1979 NCAA Division II national second-place finisher. One of the Bearcats ' better outcomes was in the Cornell Tournament where they finished third out of 14 teams. Although the team did well place-wise, they were struck by more injuries when Bob Clasgow, Brad Bales and Mike Bradley were lost for the season. " We ' ve been improving as a team throughout the year, but what ' s really killed us are the injuries that we ' ve suffered, " said Coach Cary Collins after the Cornell tournament. Many team members also felt that the Bearcats would have done better in the larger matches had they been a totally healthy team. " If we ' d had our full team at those bigger matches, we would have done better than we did, " Shemwell said. In perhaps their toughest invitational at Southwest Missouri State, the Bearcats faced a field of 17 teams that included 24 All-American wrestlers. North- west finished 11th and was led by a fourth-place finish by Lee Schechinger and a fifth place by Shemwell. " We could have done better at Southwest had our team been at 100 percent, but the competition was individual, " Collins said. In the final three dual matches, the Bearcats posted victories over conference opponents Lincoln and Missouri-Rolla but were defeated in their final dual match against Central State of Oklahoma. Their Lincoln and Missouri-Rolla wins boosted their dual record to 5-7-2, but Collins felt their record wasn ' t any indication to their ability. " We started the season strong and our record could have easily been 9-5 at this point, but the difference of four team points (two ties and a loss to Northeast) and injuries hurt us, " Collins said. The injuries carried right into the conference tournament where the Bearcats finished a disap- 188 WRESTLING -Dave Cieseke pointing fourth, a half point behind third-place finisher North- •east Missouri State. Schechinger led the Northwest effort with his first-place finish in the 177-pound weight class, followed by second- place finishes by Kirk Strand, Rich Bright and Shemwell. " The wrestlers performed well at conference, " Collins said. " We left some varsity wrestlers at home injured, and I think that made a difference. " As a result of his conference championship, Schechinger earn- ed the right to proceed to the national tournament in Lincoln, Neb., and Shemwell also qualified as a wild card entrant. Schechinger, a team leader the entire year, said being around so long was a definite advantage. Neither Schecnmger nor Shem- well placed at the national tournament, but Schechinger did register a victory before he was eliminated. Although the entire season was full of injuries and disappoint- ment, Collins felt good about the -Dave Young A BEARCAT WRESTLER TIES up with a Midland opponent.

" Team-wise, we had a poor year because of injuries, " Collins said. " I ' m usually satisfied with good performances, and I enjoyed these wrestlers because they worked hard and never backed down.

WRESTLING 189 Rabble rousers Betty and Bobby Bearcat, the Northwest mascots, were a new addition to the varsity cheerlead- ing squad. Gloria Evola and Kathy Burns, as the mascots, worked to get the crowd involved in what the cheerleaders were doing. " They work well as a pair. One complements the other, and they ' re not afraid to try any- thing, " said Shelly Sommer, co-captain of the squad. Evola and Burns liked being considered part of the 12-member squad. In the past, Bobby Bearcat was on his own. " It ' s fun being included in road trips and summer camp, " said Evola. The cheerleaders attended a camp in Memphis, Tenn., where they received awards for their efforts, including a spirit stick. " We learned new double stunts and different mounts and dis- mounts for pyramids to look more professional, " said Sommer. Besides cheerleading at athletic events, the cheerleaders partici- pated in the August orientation to welcome freshmen to the Univer- sity and in the Alumni Banquet held in the Union Ballroom at Homecoming. Above all, the cheerleaders expressed enjoyment in getting to know the football and basketball team members. " We seemed closer to the basketball team, " said Sommer. " Both teams received equal support, but we traveled right with the basketball team, and I think we gave them more encouragement. " " Being with the teams and meeting the different people involved was the most enjoyable part, " said Skip Ducoulombier, co-captain. The junior varsity cheerleaders ' energy was mainly used to back DURING HALFTIME, Betty Bearcat (Gloria Evola) talks to some spectators Betty and Ekibby Bearcat worked with the cheerleaders this year instead of separately. the girls ' basketball team in addition to backing up the varsity cheerleaders during football sea- son. " Being thanked by the girls and their coaches made our practice and efforts worthwhile, " said Sue Ann Droghei, a junior varsity cheerleader. The Bearcat steppers also supported the teams and enter- tained the crowds at athletic events. " Football season was our favorite. The crowds and applause at the games were exciting along with marching on the field with the band, " said Judy Ackerman, squad captain. To change their format on the field, the steppers used more and varied formations along with surprise routines. " One of our routines was a flare routine with the lights out in the gym to ' A Fifth of Beethoven, ' " said Ackerman. Without a sponsor this year, the steppers relied on the support of Dr. Guy D ' Aurelio, band director. " Dr. D ' Aurelio acted as an advisor for any problems that came up. He also brought us closer to the band. We not only practiced more with them, we also participated in their Phi Mu Alpha cookouts during football season and the banquet in Tarkio, " said Ackerman. Both cheerleaders and steppers enjoyed supporting the teams and entertaining at games. " If the teams won or lost, we knew how to react. We learned respect for sports and the people involved in them, " said Cheryl Johnston, varsity cheerleader. -Cindy Younker JUST BEFORE THE BEARCATS come on to the field, the cheerleaders encourage them on.

One hour after the record was set, however, success slipped through their fingers when the record was broken by a group from Sedalia. The group, dubbed " The Merry Men of Ville, " ran from 8 a.m. to ■Carole Patterson 8 a.m. while the Sedalia group ran from 9 a.m. to 9 a.m. " It wasn ' t that disappointing that our record was broken, " said Richard Alsup, cross country coach. " We were shooting for the state record, and we achieved that goal. " Past, present and future Bear- cat runners were on the squad. During the 24-hour event, the group ran a total of 277 miles, 488 yards. " After the run I felt very tired, " said Mike Sayers, a participant. " But it was worth it, knowing we had broken the record. " The 10 men each ran a mile before handing a baton off to the next runner. The group had planned how much they were going to run before the event. But at about 1:30 Sunday morning, thre runners dropped out. " When those guys dropped out, it hurt us, " Sayers said. " This meant we had to keep the same pace, but we had shorter rest periods. Before they dropped out, we had 55 minutes between runs, but this was cut down to about half an hour. This, plus the extra distance we had to run, put a burden on us. " Before the race, Alsup said that each runner should approach the marathon distance of 26 miles. However, Sayers, Vernon Darling and Bob Kelchner each ran approximately 31 miles; and Brian Kelchner, Bernie Little, David Sleep and Dave Winsiow came close to this figure. " We were continually warming up, " Sayers said, " and this made the race much more difficult to run than a marathon " Originally the run-a-thon was proposed to benefit the United States Olympic Fund, but not enough sponsors were found. " The money part of the run fizzled, " Alsup said. " We just didn ' t have enough sponsors to raise that much money. " —Dave Cieseke DAVID SLEEP HANDS off the baton to Greg Frost The group broke the state record for the 24-hour event, but it was broken an hour later by a group from Sedalia RUN-A-THON 193 A change in the system The intramural program made a change this year that resulted in different point assessments in the major minor sports category and also saw an increase in overall student participation " We divided up the sports and made the addition of more minor sports, " said Doug Peterson, intramural director. " The stu- dents are better represented because this places more em- phasis on certain sports " Peterson explained that the Intramural Council voted on it last year and that the change would definitely have some advantages. " There is more fairness in intramurals this year, " he said. " Before, w e were giving the same amount of points to sports that took three months as for sports that took one night. " Peterson also said the change would primarily affect one group of participants and that their response was basically positive. " This scoring change is almost exclusively for the fraternities, 194 INTRAMURALS and they seem to be going along with it, " he said. Steve Coulter, intramural direc- tor of Tau Kappa Epsilon, voiced support for the change as well as the direction of the entire intramural program this year. " The major minor sports change is good; and although it might have weakened us as far as points are concerned, it has helped us overall, " Coulter said. " I think the intramural program this year has been run just as well as in the past. " The intramural director had to set goals, and Peterson had his own goals for this year ' s intramural activities. " All I wanted to do was to get everything run off, " Peterson said. " I tried to provide as much time for students to participate as I could by doing things like putting more games on different schedules. " Sports were dropped and added, but basically the same type of intramural program was run this year as in previous years. " 1 dropped badminton because the interest wasn ' t really there, " Peterson said, " and we ' re going to try to play softball if the weather permits. " As far as the popularity of intramural sports, Peterson said basketball and football were the most popular by far, but that all sports increased in student participation. " Last year we had about 75 basketball teams compete, and this year the teams numbered around 100, " Peterson said. One problem from the past that did not exist this year was the problem with facilities. " We had a problem with Lamkin closing down because it hurt basketball and volleyball, " Peterson said. " The facility problem has always been a problem, but the key to beating jt is getting places reserved early and moving different seasons up continued DURING PRACTICE FOR THE upcoming intramural season, Bill Adams looks for an open receiver Adams was an instrumental part of the seventh floor Dieterich team BEV WIMER TAKES THE ball down the court in intramural competition INTRAMURALS 195 ;i{---« i»g " IN THE INTRAMURAL basketball playoffs, participants fight for a rebound.

" Intramurals ' problems in the past have been injuries and the lack of officials, two problems that weren ' t around this year. " We had a few common sprains, but we had no big injuries in football, which was kind of unusual, " Peterson said. " I also contacted officials early so that wasn ' t really a problem either. " The overall year for intramurals was good, according to Peterson, but he did voice one area in which he hoped to see some improve- ment. " I ' d like to see more com- petition between independent organizations, " he said. Peterson was also quick to note that the students deserved praise for the successful intramural year. " We ' ve had a real good year because the student body was enthusiastic and we had some good turnouts, " he said. " The overall student participation went really well. " -Tom Ibarra INTRAMURALS 197 Organizations Shifting gears 198 ORGANIZATIONS I t was a time for campus organ- izations to shift gears, as hieadlines dictated change for them. Greek life took a jump as both sororities and fraternities concentrated on the individual rushee. A fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, tried to join the ranks of Greeks on campus, while Alpha Omicron Pi fought for its existence at the University as the sorority reorganized. Independents also went through changes and made headlines. The Student Union Board reorganized but still made headlines with its concerts, and Student Senate fought apathy when competition for spring elections was minimal. The Dolphins ' sychronized swimming team also made headlines when for the first time men were invited into the organization. The biggest headline of all, the Administration Building fire, also had an effect on organizations throughout campus. The two radio stations, KDLX KXCV, were forced to move from the Ad Building to a trailer just off campus, then to Wilson Hall and finally to the communications building by the bus barn. Honorary organizations and clubs in agriculture, speech and home economics had to regroup after the disaster. -Shern Smith -Sh.-rn Smith JUST BEFORE THEIR halftime performance at the Parent ' s Day game, the Steppers and Bearcat Marching Band stand ready The band played at every home game.

ORGANIZATIONS 199 I. Going Greek Greek rush and the choice to pledge to a sorority were only the beginning of the formation of a lifestyle to carry through college. Sorority formal rush, unified under the central theme " Be Independent, Go Greek, " con- centrated on the individual rushee. PHI MU ' S WORK ON rush material during the first week. The rushees went to sorority parties and then limited their choices to two groups on the last night of rush. --Sherri Smith " The theme was based on how the Creek system stresses individuality, " said Cathy Fair, Panhellenic Council rush chair- man. " No other campus organi- zation is based solely on the individual and developing her talents through working with others. " Beginning with the Panhellenic Tea Sept. 8, 150 women were introduced to the five national sororitjes on campus and the Panhellenic Council governing them. " Rush invites the girls to view Creek life in fairness without the obligation to pledge, " Fair said. " I went through formal rush as a freshman, and I felt that I could plecTge later if I wanted to, " said Chris Whitlock. " I needed the time to see the differences between sororities. I went through again as a junior this semester and pledged the group of my choice, " Chosen to handle any emotional situations arising during rush, nine rush counselors were available to answer rushees ' questions. The counselors ' sorority affiliations remained anonymous during rush and they moved out of Roberta Hall for the convenience of the rushees. " We were there to answer simple questions such as scheduling, and more impor- tantly, for emotional support, " said Janann Walker, rush counselor. Formal rush, as opposed to spring rush, had a definite set of guidelines designed to benefit the rushees. One of these was known as silence. " Silence is defined by Panhell as no communication between sorority members and rushees outsideof rush parties, it ' s impor- tant because it prevents excessive pressure from sorority members, " said Mischelle Graham, president of Panhellenic Council. After rush was over, letters were sent out to girls who went through rush to get their opinions. " We went over the letters and found that the rushees wanted more time to decide, more free time and more specific expecta- tions. This was our first year to carry out rush on our own, " said Beth McKee, Alpha Omicron Pi junior Panhellenic member. Lesley Welch, an Alpha Omicron Pi traveling consultant, offered suggestions and guide- lines for the first-time Alpha Omicron Pi rushers. " Lesley helped a great deal. We now have a better knowledge of how rush works. We had all been through rush before, but not on this side, " McKee said. Changes are made every year to improve rush. In consideration of the rushees, the first-round parties on Sunday were shortened to 35 minutes each. The following rush parties were 50 minutes long during narrowing-down process. The last night of rush, the rushees could only attend two preference parties, held in the sorority chapter rooms. " I thought rush was well organized. The times of the parties were convenient and could be changed if there was a conflict. I enjoyed it and am glad I pledged, " said Bindy Riney. -Cindy Younker 200 RUSH itters lowent opinions, tersand re free xpecta- % " said icron Pi ler. la isullanl, Sh«rri Smith DURING PLEDGE DEBUT, two pledges acknowledge their sororities.

Both fraternities had successful fall rushes and agreed that the number of fall rushees was much higher than previous years. " A fairly large percentage of men took part in fall rush, " Barton said. " Rush at Northwest is a lot different than at a big univer- sity, " Burrows said. " There is a lot less to do in a town like Maryville, and our Creek system has opened up a whole new world for students. " Interfraternity competition was a dominating force during the year. t ' s just unbelievable the competition between fraterni- ties, " Barton said.

The award, given by the Delta Chi ' s national organization, is given to various chapters for accomplishments and outstanding achievements performed during the year. " We compiled things we did during last year such as Home- coming and intramurals and sent them to our nationals, " said Larry Loghry, president. " One thing that really helped was being named top Creek organization on campus during Creek Week last year. " The Delta Chi ' s were among 10 of the 71 different national chapters that received the Award of Excellence. " We were one of the youngest and smallest chapters to win the award, " Loghry said. " The others were big schools like Michigan State or Illinois State. " Homecoming also meant a- wards as the Delta Chi ' s finished BOB TACHICK PLAYS Santa Claus during the Delta Chi Delta Zeta Christmas party for Head Start children. Projects like this helped the fraternity win an award for outstanding Delta Chi chapter. consistently high in Creek cat- egories. Their " Cone with the Bulldogs " skit received first place, their house decoration second, and their float tied for second place. " We were pretty well satisfied with Homecoming, " Loghry said. The Delta Chi ' s also took 17 fall pledges, the largest pledge class ever. They participated in community service projec ts as well as traditional Delta Chi events. They helped collect for United Way, held a Christmas party for the Head Start children and con- ducted a swim-a-thon for the Maryville Sheltered Workshop. Help and support for most Delta Chi events were provided by their little sister organization, the Chi Delphians. " We help the Delta Chi ' s by providing the feminine touches needed in an all-male organiza- tion, " explained Jill Porterfield. The Chi Delphians held money- making projects such as car washes and slave auctions, provided entertainment at the Delta Chi smokers and helped out with Homecoming, rush and Creek Week. ■; -Shern Smith -Sherri Smith DELTA CHI.

The members of a fraternity " are like a football team, " said Rea Laflin, rush chairman. " The turnover rate is high. " According to Larry Meyer, president, the Delta Sig ' s hoped to attract " other guys who will get along with everybody here and blend in. " In an attempt to promote this crusade, the Delta Sig ' s changed rush procedures by cutting out 95 percent of the traditional hazing and leaning more toward the education of the rushee. They tried to familiarize the future Delta Sig ' s with the history of the fraternity and also to nurture a sense of responsibility. " I feel, as a fraternity, we have a lot to offer to the college man socially and academically, " said Laflin. " You learn what you need to know when you get out of school. " The Lil Sis ' were also incor- ported into the membership campaign. DELTA SIC MEN battle an opponent during intrannural basketball competition. The team was eliminated from the fraternity playoffs in this game. " Sometimes guys will listen to girls more than to other guys, " explained Meyers. Jill Mitchell, Lil Sis, said the girls " talk to guys at parties and get them interested in the fraternity.

In February they sponsored a regional Little Sis conference and a regional Alpha Kappa Lambda conference which approximately 100 to 150 people from the midwest chapters attended. AKL was also involved in the American Cancer Society cam- paign. Members moved furniture to raise money and worked concessions at Kansas City Chief ' s games to earn nearly $300 per week. In the spring, AKL Brian Crawford was awarded the Uni- versity ' s Best Creek Man. " I believed the preceding year when we received the best Greek organization that we could only match that by our outstanding individual, Brian, " said Dean Elliot, president. AKL members strived for improvements on the house they had purchased in 1978. They reshingled the roof and painted the porch and foundation of the house. AKL ' s said they felt they had an outstanding image. " We reveal ourselves as we are and not as what people want to think we are. We have no fake gestures or attitudes, " said Elliot. " We have put forth so much with so few people because we dwell in quality, not quanity. " Thirty-six Little Sisters made up the Kalley Filleans who aided AKL members in preparing their rush program and cooked the smoker meal for rush. " We mainly wanted to get involved in what the guys were doing, " said Pam Crawford, treasurer. " It made us feel good when the guys showed their appreciation for our efforts. We, as much as they, reflected what the organization was like to the rest of the campus. " The Kalley Filleans ' activities included helping with the Home- coming float and decorations, helping in the concession stands at the Chief ' s games and raising money by sponsoring a party and car wash.

ALPHA KAPPA LAMBDA KALLEY FILLEAN 211 1 A whole new ball game After .winning several battles, the men of Sigma Phi Epsilon and the women of Alpha Omicron Pi finally won their separate wars. For the Sig Ep ' s, the fight began after Dean Woodbeck, a national representative of the second largest national fraternity, visited Northwest during the 1978-79 term. Woodbeck said this campus would be a good home for the Sig Ep ' s. " We have chapters at Missouri Western, Central Missouri State, University of Missouri-Columbia, Iowa State, Kansas University and the University of Nebraska- Omaha, so we ' re really strong around the Midwest, " Woodbeck said. Inter-Fraternity Council voted to allow Sig Ep to attempt to recruit individuals in the fall. The IFC constitution said any frater- nity wishing to be recognized as a campus Creek organization had to have 10 members and petition for colony status. Sig Ep could not conduct formal rush, so they turned to other recruitment methods with plans to be reviewed by IFC at the end of the fall semester. But even though enough members were obtained, when it came time to be reviewed, IFC refused to recognize Sig Ep as part of the Creek system. " On April 19 we had our initiation banquet which gave us recognition by everyone across the country as a chartered fraternity, with the exception of Inter-Fraternity Council, " said Tim Bodine, president. A great deal of controversy centered around the Sig Ep charter. " There are basically two reasons why I think that another fraternity is needed here, " said Craig Foster, regional director. " One, it will strengthen the Creek system as a whole. Another reason is that NWMSU ' s enroll- ment is increasing, but there is a low percentage of men joining fraternities. We plan to change that. " James Wyant, Alpha Kappa Lambda sponsor, had a different view, " I dislike it extremely, and that ' s the feeling of my whole fraternity, " Wyant said. " 1 feel that IFC isn ' t looking out for the best interest of the existing fraternities, " However, Foster said a new fraternity should not be a threat to any of the existing fraternities. " If the present system isn ' t working for the established fraternities, it ' s not the numbers available but the chapters them- selves, " Foster said. " We were looking for a different type of fraternity sys- tem. We will petition again to join IFC next semester so that we can compete on the same level within the Creek system, " said Brad Neuburger, vice president. " For the time being we are going to play it by ear. We hope to help strengthen the over-all program of Inter-Fraternity Coun- cil and the Creek system, " Bodine said. The women of AOII also had to BEFORE RUSH, Cathy Crist puts the final touches on an Alpha Omicron Pi hall decoration. The sorority reorganized last spring and concentrated on fall rush. --Sherri Smith make a fresh start. Last spring, members of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority were declared alumni members by their national headquarters, and plans to establish a new chapter were begun, " We have more than tripled our membership in a year, " said Cayle Burgess, president. " Our best asset in rush was the tightness in our group that the rushees could actually see. " In their fight to get back on their feet, the members received help from alumni, " Our alums sent money, and we were also adopted by a chapter in Oklahoma. More than any- thing, we appreciate the support we have received from the other Creeks on campus, " Burgess said, " When they take up for us on derogatory comments and help us rush, it means so much. " Working with small numbers meant more work and time required by each individual, but the attitude remained high. " We ' re positive in everything we do. We know we ' re not going to fold, " Burgess said. This positive attitude might not have been present if outside interference by international of- ficials had not taken place. This intervention, though positive for the present members, was a sharp blow for the girls now declared alumni, " We must provide for the other girls a situation so they won ' t lose anything, " said Mary Moore, international secretary treasurer. " There were hard feelings in the beginning. They didn ' t under- stand, but there are no problems today and no hard feelings, " " We want to build a strong chapter at NWMSU, " she said. The girls in our chapter here have worked so hard and are so tired. So we did it (rushed) for them. We had to get the nucleus for the girls ' to build on, " Moore said. y - |,i,,eWl fr, -requ J.

" It ' s just one we emphasized this year. We also worked more on our philanthropy. " The Delta Zeta ' s national philanthropy is working with the deaf. They donated money to Callaudet College in Washington, D.C., the only college in the world devoted exclusively to the deaf. They also sponsored a popcorn party for deaf members of the Sounds of Silence group which performed in Charles Johnson Theater. At Christmas, the sorority teamed up with the Delta Chi ' s and held a party for children in the Head Start program and they collected canned goods and money for needy families during Thanksgiving.

The organization also received the highest honor. Creek overall supremacy. " We were surprised at the outcome and that made the award more special, " said Janann Walker, vice-president. The goal of the Phi Mu ' s was to uphold the standards of the sorority and help each individua as best they could. Like Delta Zeta, the Phi M also worked on a number philanthropies. They sold " pump- kin pops " to make money for Project Hope and walked from house to house for the United Way. DURING CREEK RETREAT in July, Delta Zeta women enjoy a picnic.

Both groups work- ed on involvement of members as a whole. For the Sigma ' s, membership was the central issue, while the Alpha ' s placed their attention on scholarship. The Sigma ' s were in the process of restructuring their rush system in order to strengthen their chapter. " Debbie Johnson, our national collegiate chairman who visited this year, gave us ideas for a more successful and progressive rush, " said Debbie Irick, president. " Membership was our major project ■ ' " Our new rush system will force the active members to get out and meet girls rather than wait for them, " said Andrea Paulsen, chapter president for the next year. The Sigma ' s year was topped off when they received the National Efficiency Award given each year by their executive office. " This award is figured on a point system based on our efficiency in running the chap- ter, " said Irick. Irick was flown to Woodstock, Va., the Sigma ' s home office, where she met with the presidents of four other Sigma chapters that received similar awards " We met to formulate ideas, review problems and arrive at possible solutions to strengthen all chapters, " said Irick. The Sigma ' s also paid a visit to a sister chapter at Creighton University. " We installed them a year ago, so now we are helping them rush. Ten girls went to Creighton to give them some new ideas, " said Paulsen. " Visiting a small chapter like Gamma Epsilon made me appre- ciate the larger scale which we work on, " said Lisa Alexander. Raising their CPA to 2.5 for active standing, the women of Alpha Sigma Alpha set their goal to improve their scholastic a- chievements. To help members put more emphasis on grades, the Alpha ' s used recognition as motivation. " We raised our overall grade- point with the strong approval of our national office, " said Diane Thompson, president. " Trophies were given to the girl with the highest gradepoint, the senior with the highest gradepoint and the member with the most improved gradepoint. " The highest recognition for achievement, grade-wise, is the Elizabeth Bird Small Award. " This is the top award and goes to the member with highest overall gradepoint. She receives a certificate and, more importantly, recognition for grades, " said Amy York, scholarship chairman. Alpha Field Representative Caria Kemp visited the chapter this year to offer some additional suggestions to motivate girls to study. " CarIa told us the time of year that most students tend to slack off on homework, and she had some good ideas to encourage studying. We also have study hours set up for our provisional members. They are required to study two hours a week with an active member, " said York. Members with below a 2.5 lose their social privileges and cannot vote on important issues. " We stress education and studies to balance out with social aspects of Creek life, " said York. ;ili.y i m - — « i«X [W-; SIGMA SICNM SIGMA FRONT ROW Jeanne Green, Paula Dwyer, Cathy Fair, Vanessa Livesay, Robyn James, Linda Williamson, Rachelle Barmann, Debie Parsons, Jill Barnhart, Connie Yates, Anita Carreth ROW 2: Shelly Winstead, Debbie Powers, Linda Mannen, Staci E3ohlmpyer, Tammy Bryan, Suzi Marx, Carrie Shook, Cindy Fisher, treas ; Cheri Burnsides, Nancy Wright, Shelley Sommer, vice pres ; Peggie Hubbell ROW 3: Sheila McCinnis, Jeannie Bryan, Sherrie Rebel, Sandy Rebel, Julie Thompson, Paula Ostronic, Mori Flanagan, Debbie Nowakowski, Paula Hansen, Joyce Keyes, Chella Terrill BACK ROW Tern Hamilton, Dee Tobin, Kathy Rush, Deanna Savage, Andrea Paulsen, Holly Murphy, Regina Hill, corr sec , Kim Barnes, Beth Lane, Deborah Irick, pres ; Claudette Cebhards, Lisa Alexander.

But only Panhellenic Council succeeded. " In the past, the president of Panhel has done much of the organizing for rush, " said Mis- chelle Graham, president. " But this year I delegated some of the WHILE PANHELLENIC COUNCIL succeed- ed in changing rush rules, Inter Fraternity Council did not get around to it first semester. According to President Larry Loghry, the organization ran out of time. -Frank W Mercer duties out to other officers. Rush worked a lot better this year because of this change. " Inter Fraternity Council also tried to change the rules governing rush for fraternities. But according to Larry Loghry, president, the rules were not changed because the end of the first semester crept up on the organization too fast. " We got around to it a little too late, " he said. " We didn ' t get into it much the first semester. " Loghry said that the organiza- tion still would try to change the rules for next year. He said the changes would benefit some of the Creek organizations and help rush run more smoothly. " We tried to shorten and reorganize rush, " he said. " The current form of rushing gets too costly for some of the smaller fraternities. " Loghry said IFC had planned to provide each fraternity with a list of prospective rushees, so every organization would have a fair and equal shot at them. " We wanted to make rush a time to focus in on the men who wanted to pledge. A lot of rush parties are open to everyone and most people come just to drink beer. By providing each fraternity with a list of the rushees, it will be easier to find the people who are really interested in joining. " Rush did not take up all of Panhel and IPC ' s time. Both organizations were in charge of Greek Week on campus. The week, which was held in the spring, was a time to involve not only Greeks but independents as well. " Greek Week has two goals, " Graham said. " It is a way to get independents involved in Greek activities. It is also a way to get the different Greek organizations to interact with themselves. We ' re so busy during the year that this is about the only time we are able to get together as Greeks. " Each day of the week had a different theme, with contests involving different organizations held one day. " Basically IFC and Panhel organize Greek Week, " Loghry said. " We set up committees to cover each event we have. We have to organize it or things just wouldn ' t happen. " MISCHELLE GRAHAM, Panhellenic Coun- cil president, listens as Paula Barbieri makes a point. Panhel succeeded in changing some rush rules.

America ' s only national service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, sponsored a walk-a-thon for the American Heart Association. " The mayor proclaimed the day as one of celebration and service, " said Eric Mattson, president. " We had an open line on KNIM and talked about our walk with a civic leader. We had seven walkers who walked 10 miles. We wajked from the north end of town to Nodaway Lake and back. Although only one person ran all the way, everyone finished by running. " The members felt " strongly about the heart association; that ' s why we chose that organization, " said Mattson. Preparing to take their place in community service organizations, Sigma Society was sponsored by Soroptomists. The organization sponsored a Little Sister program to give area elementary school girls extra attention they may not have received at home. " The members took the girls out for ice cream and to special events, " said Nancy Riley, sponsor. " Halloween and Christ- mas parties were given and these girls were invited. " Cardinal Key, an organization based on scholarship and campus leadership, sponsored a Big Brother and Sister project. " The members took some toddlers to the Homecoming parade, " said Jean Kenner, sponsor. " Also, Halloween and Christmas parties were given for them. " The organization planned to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Foundation with their annual paper drive. Concentrating on both campus and community needs. Circle K sponsored several major projects, one of which was the annual Halloween party for senior citi- zens. " Senior citizens were trans- ported from nursing homes to the senior citizen center, " said Perry Echelberger. " The idea was to get those senior citizens out who normally couldn ' t. " The members sponsored danc- ers in the Muscular Dystrophy dance-a-thon on campus and sold popcorn and cokes. As another service. Circle K offered Cardiopulmonary Resusci- tation training. " We find that people should definitely learn how to administer CPR in an attempt to save lives if necessary, " said Echelberger.

Its membership included 50 students and resulted after a group of students thought it would be a worthwhile organization. " The goals are to create an understanding with the public, " said Fulsom. FUN Production shared a similar problem with Harambee. " The membership is basically black, yet it is open to the entire campus, " said Fulsom. Sigma Gamma Rho was a social sorority for services to the community and was not a strictly black sorority. Activities involved monthly projects such as can recycling and the collection of food for a needy family during the Thanksgiving season. There were only 16 black women on campus during the year, as compared to the 30 enrolled last year. " Due to the decline of black female membership, the sororities were not associated with the Panhellenic Council this year, " said Fulsom.

Formed to pool the ideas of resident assistants on campus, the RA Board served as a liaison between RA ' s and the Housing Office. " We let them know how we felt on matters, " said Mike Lassiter, president. " We gave the housing staff a feel of what would and wouldn ' t work in campus hous- ing. " Working on revisions of the RA handbook, the board wrote to 30 colleges for copies of their handbooks for ideas. " Our attempt was to write a more organized RA handbook, " said Lassiter. The RA Board brought about MIKE LASSITER GOES OVER a point at an RA Board meeting. Lassiter said the group served as a liason between RA ' s and the Housing Office. hall renovations in North South Complex and Hudson Hall and helped coordinate in-service train- ing for RA ' s. These services included first aid. Cardiopul- monary Resuscitation training and workshops. Sponsoring monthly activities gave the group a chance to get together. " Since we were all full-time students, the RA ' s tried to coordinate activities for each other on campus, " Lassiter said. In an attempt to provide more benefits for RA ' s, the board offered free books and parking. IRC sponsored an Energy Conservation contest between dorms. " The halls competed with each other on low energy consump- tion, " said Mike VanCuilder, IRC advisor. " Three thousand, five hundred dollars was given for hall renovation. This money was used to purchase new furniture. " IRC also worked toward per- suading students to live in the dorms. " This was a drive to keep st udents living on campus, " said VanCuilder. " This program es- pecially catered to the spring semester. " With proceeds going to the Administration Building reno- vation, IRC sponsored a chili supper during Faculty Dames night. " The $200 we raised will help the Administration Building reno- vation when it ' s begun, " Van- Guilder said.

Each council expressed the need to unite the residents and work for their goals as a dorm instead of individuals and floors. Hudson Hall accomplished this by sponsoring such activities as the annual flag football Bust Bowl with North Complex and a dance with the North-South Complex. " We also sponsored a Little Sis ' and Moms ' Weekend and con- structed a Homecoming housedec and third-place float together, " said Elaine Wurster, president. Selling donuts on Saturday mornings helped raise money for the council to fund an all-hall Christmas supper. Other proceeds from donut sales went to the KDLX annual Christmas drive for needy families. " For the first year, Hudson had dorm parents In which members of the faculty attended dorm council-sponsored events, " said Wurster. With about only 25 members on the dorm council, Wurster said, It was difficult to get activities organized. " It was hard to get everyone involved, " said Wurster. " There was some apathy, like everywhere on campus. " To unite the residents of Millikan Hall, the dorm council sponsored a Lil Sis ' Weekend, an all-hall Christmas party and a fund-raising slave auction. The campus-wide dance-a-thon for muscular dystrophy was also a unifying project. " Everybody worked together great, and it was a good year, " said Debby Marshall, hall coor- dinator. 226 DORM COUNCILS Like the other two dorms, Roberta Hall ' s dorm council tried to unify the residents. " Our goal was to get the dorm united, " said Susan Kraner, president. " It was difficult be- cause the dorm was already split into sororities with each doing her own things. " Kraner felt the council accom- plished this unity by sponsoring a Thanksgiving dinner for Roberta Hall, a Halloween party with South Complex and a Christmas party. The dorm council also spon- sored a pledge debut to get all the women together and meet one another. Les Murdock, Dieterich Hall president, felt that at the beginning of the year the council got off to a slow start. " This year, because 1 was a new president and inexperienced at being one, we got off to a slow start, " said Murdock. " But with the help of the floor represent- atives, Advisor Mike Andrews and all the guys, we were able to get things organized and accom- plished. " The council had plans to organize both a Superstar and basketball tournament. Other projects included backgammon, chess, handball, billards and pitch competitions and a party with Perrin Hall. " We sponsored a coffee house, but because of poor organization on our part, it received poor attendence, " said Murdock. " We did receive a great response from the residents In our dorm LES MURDOCK, Dieterich Hall Dorm Council president, discusses the possibility of having a basketball tournament with other dorm residents. The dorm council sponsored various competitions for the dorm. renovating the floor lounges, though. " The council sponsored a contest between the floors for lounge Improvements with $60 for first place, $40 and $20 for second and third places and $10 going to the remaining four floors. " We wanted to let everyone know we were concerned about the appearance of our hall and we seemed to accomplish this through our renovation contest, " Murdock said.

DURING A STUDENT SENATE meeting, Teresa Bryan is sworn in as Roberta Hall senator. Bryan was elected by Roberta ' s dorm council to fill a vacancy. I Student Senate served as a liaison between students and the administration and found itself. Caught in the middle Communication and organiza- tion were dominating factors controlling the Student Senate Basically, the role of Student Senate is three-fold, " said Roger Scarbrough, president. " First of all, Senate should serve as a liaison between the administra- tion and the students. Secondly, it should coordinate student groups so that they can work more effectively together, rather than independently. The third thing is to participate in state and national student groups in order to broaden our scope of activities by sharing examples from other universities around the country. " Scarbrough said that Senate , accomplished these three factors fairly well. " We work pretty close with the administration, " he said. " I now have direct contact with President (B.D.) Owen ' s office. We have had a couple of things we didn ' t agree on, but I at least have access to him. " Though the communication between Senate and the ad- ministration was abundant, the amount of influence Senate had was questionable. " One thing is for sure, " Scarbrough said, " the admin- istration does listen. Whether they do just what we want is a different thing. " Scarbrough said that the power lay with the students. " The students have the ul- timate power here, " he said. " We can do whatever we want if we just band together, but we very seldom do that. " Scarbrough said the most difficult thing to accomplish was coordinating the student groups. " We had a committee working on coordinating student groups all year, but our response was pretty bad. We sent out letters to all the organizations, but there was little interest or participation. One of our biggest problems in this area is that so many groups are duplicating their activities and functions. If they would organize together, they would accomplish more than if they work totally independently. " Senate ' s national and state involvement was healthy, but was improving.

Scarbrough said he would like to see more involvement in the state and nation in future years. " I would definitely like to see an emphasis on Northwest being involved in state and national organizations, " he said. " The knowledge and experience gained is invaluable. Every problem that has come up here has already been experienced somewhere else by another University. We can only benefit from this involve- ment. " -Cindy Sedler STUDENT SENATE sponsors Irene Huk and Dr. Roger Corley and members Lisa Gates and Sherry Turner listen to the minutes of the previous week ' s meeting. A house divided Despite some bitter feelings, a new programming body was planned to abolish the Student Union Board in the fall of 1979. However, changes the new program brought seemed only minor to a few SUB members as the year progressed. " The new program will serve the campus as SUB has done in the past, " said Irene Huk, director of student activities and coordinator of the programming coordinating board. " As it now stands, SUB controls $30,000 of the Univer- sity ' s money, and it seemed it was a budget in the hands of too few people, " said Marcia Barnett, advisor of the new coordinating board. " So the programming coordinating board decided to expand SUB by adding individuals which would give more students a chance to decide who to budget the money. " Involved in this decision were Barnett, Huk, Mike Van Guilder, residence life coordinator, Rich- ard Landes, foreign student advisor, Marvin Siliiman, director of the Student Union and advisor of Union Board, and Bruce Wake, director of housing. " The new program was devel- oped, and Van Guilder became its advisor, yet the only major change was the procedure to get on the program, " said Pam Butner, former president. " Now a student wishing to become a member must be a representative from his class or an organization, which would give him voting rights, " said LouAnn Mahlandt, newly-elected presi- dent. The new programming body consisted of three appointed members from major organ- izations such as Inter Fraternity Council, Inter-Residence Council, 230 UNION BOARD International Student Organiza- tion, Harambee, Student Senate, Panhellenic Council and SUB. Also, two members of each class acted as representatives on the new programming body. According to Barnett, SUB reacted negatively to the new program at first. Misconceptions developed and included volunteer participation, purposes for the new organization and to what extent the charter had to be " finished, " said Huk. " Evidently misconceptions re- sulted because the phrase ' voting and decision-making ' was deleted from the list of who would be in the new program when it was discussed, " Huk said. " Every member of SUB was upset at first because we felt like we had no choice, " said Phil Mothersead. " First of all, we felt we were getting kicked out, and we could do nothing about it. Then, after several meetings with the programming coordinating board, we went through some compromises and were told we still would have SUB this semester but that next fall would be different. We understood the situation better. " Butner agreed she was upset with the first proposal since it did not mention SUB members. " I felt like they were not giving us any recognition for our work, but instead they were just going to take SUB away from us, while at tfie same time slapping us in our faces, " said Butner. " We were ready to throw up our hands and quit. " However, Butner reported no loss of members and said the volunteers were still active. With the exception of an increased membership, the new program- ming body did the same work but never changed its name. " The name change was voted down, " said Mahlandt, " because SUB was already established with agencies and other schools, so it was easier to keep the same name. " -Angel Watson UNION BOARD.

The Student Home Economics Association looked for ways to become more accustomed to the working world. " The purpose of our organiza- tion is to promote professional attitudes toward home econom- ics, " said Tami Briggs, state secretary of the student member section of the Missouri Home HOME ECONOMICS students view a film during Hospitality Day, The day gave prospective high school students a chance to view the program. -Laura Blombert; Economics Association. SHEA also wanted to improve relations between home econom- ics departments and faculty. " Relations can never be too good, " said Joyce Graves, vice president. " They were not that bad to start with, but it is always nice to open channels between the students and the faculty. " This is where the Student- Faculty Interface came in. " Student-Faculty Interface is made up of all of the home ec faculty members and some elected students, " said Jamie Manville, vice president. " We meet once a month to discuss problems in the curriculum and how other things effect us as a department. For example, since the Administration Building fire, it is hard to maintain the level of unity we once had so we are looking for some solutions. " Student-Faculty Interface par- ticipated in the family art fair and also sponsored two leadership conventions for students. Kappa Omicron Phi, the honor- ary home economics organization, also helped out with the family art fair. " We did not work as closely with service projects as other things because we are not a service organization, " said Man- ville, program chairman " We are working on a graduate study theme, however. We ' re exploring different areas of graduate study in home econom- ics and opportunities in the field of home ec, " Manville said.

" Agriculture Club provides an opportunity for ag students to get together for social and academic interests, " said Brad Ross, president. The 130 members participated in various activities to raise money for the annual agriculture banquet in the spring. These activities A PARTICIPANT IN the Agriculture Club ' s roping contest urges her horse around a barrel The contest drew 110 participants from several surrounding states AT THE ENTRY TABLE for the roping contest, Ag Club members wait to register another contestant included a barnwarming, which was a large social gathering for all ag students and alumni; the sale of smoked turkeys, a community service project held around Thanksgiving; and the annual fall roping contest. This contest drew 110 participants from Missouri and the surrounding states for competition. ' The roping and other activities had two functions. They were money-making projects, and prob- ably most importantly they got all students together working toward a similar goal, " said Ross. Future plans included an Ag Week where the campus would be provided with a noon meal and tour, and providing high school students with a meal at the district ag judging days. The club was also in close contact with the community, according to Ross. Specialized agriculture frater- nities were also available for agriculture majors. Alpha Tau Alpha, a fraternity for agriculture educators, was designed to help future agricul- ture instructors establish an idea of what to expect once they obtained their degree, according to member Bob Claycamp. Activities included attending the FFA National Conference and the ATA Conference in Kansas City. The agriculture honor frater- nity. Delta Tau Alpha, concen- trated on recruiting and initiating new members. AGRICULTURE ORGANIZATIONS 235 A notable performance while the music groups tried to perfect their performances, they also hoped it would be a teaching experience. For the Madraliers, this exper- ience came in the form of the Madrigal ' s Feaste. Under the direction of Gilbert Whitney, for the fifth year in a row the Madraliers presented " Ye Olde Englishe Yuletide Feaste. " The Madrigal Feaste, patterned after the reign of Elizabeth I, offered an evening comparable to that of a dinner theater, designed to provide good food and entertain- ment. " Each year we hope to offer something a little different than the previous years, " said Whit- ney. This year the originality came in the form of the Society of Creative Anachronisms, a society ded- icated to the study of medieval lore, which furnished the dances. The Feaste also introduced the opportunity for each participant to create his own brass rubbings. The Tower Choir, directed by Byron Mitchell, focused on the performing aspect when it went on a three-state tour. With a repertoire of popular, spiritual and more serious compositions, the touring choir took in the corners of Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. GILBERT WHITNEY LEADS the Madraliers in a song during a presentation in Albany, Mo. The University Chorale also concentrated on performing. Sing- ing for the opening of Parents ' Day was one of the main focuses of the groups. " It was a real thrill for the students to receive a standing ovation, " said Mitchell, director. The Tower Choir and University Chorale joined forces to present a concert. The Tower Choir per- formed a mixture of contempora- ry, religious and madrigal music. The University Chorale followed with several selections designed to promote the Christmas spirit. The Sigma Alpha lota women ' s service organization, an integral part of the music department, focused on teaching by tutoring freshmen who were having problems with the music theory course required for all majors. SAI also provided concession stands for music contest and swing choir contest. " It ' s used as a money-making project, " said Peggy Bush, sponsor. " However, it ' s also a service for people who don ' t have time to go uptown and eat. " UNIVERSITY CHORALE members practice for their performance at the opening of Parents ' Day.

Under the first-year direction of Dr. Guy D ' Aurelio, the 90-member band performed a full concert in Lamkin Gym- nasium, including routines by the Flag Corp and Bearcat Steppers. " Being inside, the music seemed so much more musical, the subtleties that are lost on the field could be heard and seen, " said D ' Aurelio. The experience was a new one for band members, and the closer proximity was well accepted. " More people came than we had expected, and it was exciting, " said Barb Crowney. " I think it will become a tradition. " A crowd of 500 attended the concert, including Jim Redd, football coach, who directed a portion of the concert. " We received encouragement to keep it going, and the band members felt that it was a great idea and want to do it again, " said D ' Aurelio. " Having the whole band there made it more exciting. It sounded more peppy and everyone was psyched, " said Pam Culver, Bearcat Stepper. Because D ' Aurelio was in his first year at Northwest, the band did not tour first semester. However, in February, they toured the St. Louis area for recruiting purposes. As a result of D ' Aurelio ' s being the fifth band director in five years, the marching band had learned to anticipate change. " People tend to not come back if they know they won ' t have the same band director, " said Clark Montgomery. " It is hard to get used to each director ' s unique style so the band gets smaller, but they are eager to learn. Dr. D ' Aurelio will be here next year if everything permits. " -Cindy Younker A PORTION OF THE Bearcat Marching Band ' s brass section goes across the field. Besides marching at home football games, the band also held their first indoor concert.

" This is a big responsibility for our small group, " said Scovill. Plans are to have a dinner theater production in the Student Union Ballroom. A new sponsor, Theophil Ross, took over the duties formerly held by Dr. Charles Schultz. The students felt that Schultz had enough duties, so they decided to choose a new sponsor. " He ' s new for us, and we ' re new to him, but it ' s working out very well, " said Scovill. Tournaments worked out well for the forensics team.

SPEECH ORGANIZATIONS 241 On the move There was no place the two University radio stations could really call home after a fire destroy ed their studios on the third floor of the Administration Building. The two stations, KDLX and KXCV, hopped, skipped and jumped all over campus before settling down into another tem- porary building by the bus barn. Before that, the stations were housed in a trailer by their transmitter just off campus and on the second floor of Wilson Hall. The fire destroyed both studios, along with several production studios and equipment. But when members of the station arrived at the fire, the fact that their place of work would be gone in a few hours did not hit them at first. " When I arrived at the fire, 1 didn ' t think she was going to go, " said Rollie Stadlman, director of broadcast services. " But when the roof collapsed over KDLX, I got very emotional. I had a hopeless and helpless feeling. " " At first it just seemed like a small fire, " said Perry Echel- berger, radio operations manager. ' ' But when the flames came out of the roof I couldn ' t believe it. " Even as the flames shot through the stations, Stadlman, his staff and students were planning their first temporary site, a trailer by their transmitter just north of campus. A meeting was held in Stadlman ' s basement, and plans were made to put KXCV back on the air the next morning. Equipment was brought in from local radio stations, air checks were run at 3 a.m. and the station signed on at 6;30 a.m. " It made us feel kind of special that we were able to get back on the air so soon, " Bill. Oliver said. " The morale of the students IN KXCV KDLX ' S femporarv station at Wilson Hall, Dan Popp prepares an album for the air. The two radio stations had to move from this location to another one by the bus barn in January 242 KDLX KXCV who were here at the time of the fire stayed up, " Stadlman said. " Those who weren ' t here were calling me to see if they should still come here for school in the fall. " " I never thought of going to another school, " Mike Glaspie said. " I knew Rollie wouldn ' t let us down. " After KXCV was back on the air, the next task for the station members was going back into the Ad Building studios to salvage what was left of the station. The morning after the fire, Stadlman went through the studios for the first time. " In the back of my mind I thought there would only be smoke damage, " he said. " My heart sank when I went into the TV studio, " Oliver said. " I was going to be sports director in the fall, and there was nothing left. " Almost immediately. University personnel and station members started to pull everything worth saving out of the building. Although the two stations plus instructional television facilities were destroyed in the fire, the record library, practice studios and some engineering equipment were saved. Eighteen thousand albums were pulled from the stations, and it took personnel two and a half days to move them to Wilson Hall. After the move from the Ad Building, the next project was -Frank W Mercer bringing KXCV to Wilson Hall and preparing to put KDLX back on the air when classes started in the fall. " At first the students liked being on the air at the trailer, but after awhile the inconveniences of the place made them want to move to Wilson real fast, " Stadlman said, KXCV moved to Wilson during the break between the summer and fall terms, and KDLX went back on the air the first week of school. Even then the stations were planning their next move to the communications building by the bus barn in January. This residency was also termed tempo- rary, but the building was designed to house a radio station. " It was a lot better there, " Oliver said. " We had much better facilities there than we had in Wilson. " Despite this fact, the broad- casters wanted a place they could really call home. " Temporary is great if you spell it with a ' T. ' If you spell it with a ' P ' it isn ' t, " Stadlman said. DWICHT LANE AND Jeff McCall load up equipment recovered from the fire-ravaged radio stations.

" There are a lot of eligible English majors and minors who are not a part of English Honor Society, " said Deb Kiefer, presi- dent. " We have about eight or nine members, and there are so many more who could join. " The prerequisites for being a member of English Honor Society were a minimum of 21 English hours and a 3.25 CPA in English. " Last fall we discussed the possibility of lowering the re- quired CPA to 3.0 because that is what it is nationally, " Kiefer said, " but we decided against it. " Kiefer said the purpose of the :)rganization was to honor those English majors and minors who had achieved excellence in En- glish. " Each month we have some- thing different at each of our meetings, " Kiefer said. " In January we had a poetry reading by Mr. (Craig) Goad and Dr. (William) Trowbridge, and in February we had a panel discussion on the uses of the non-teaching English degree. " The Society of Professional Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi, was in the beginning phases of chartering the organization on JIM MACNEIL, National Press Photo- graphers Association president, goes over possible contest photographs with Dave Cieseke. After chartering last spring, the organization tried to gain more members.

As soon as the charter was approved by the national head- quarters, it would replace the present Society for Collegiate Journalists. ' Sigma Delta Chi is the professional organization and students can make more contacts with people in the business, " said Jeanne Williams, journalism in- structor and one of the sponsors of SDX Even though permanent plans could not be made because the charter had not been approved, Fred Wickman, president of the Kansas City Press Club and employee of the Kansas City Star, spoke to prospective members on campus Feb. 14. Jeff McCall, co-sponsor and news director of KDLX KXCV, said the national requirements for SDX membership were that a student be at least a sophomore and plan on a career in some form of journalism. The National Press Photo- graphers Association began with 10 members last year, but President Jim MacNeil said he thought membership on campus could shoot up to 20 to 25 without too much trouble. " NPPA was formed so students would have a better understand- ing of photojournalism in a more professional way, " MacNeil said. " I think that after we let people know that we are a formal organization and let them know some of the things we have planned, our membership should reach 20 to 25 quickly.

Atkins was managing editor of the Missourian. 246 MISSOURIAN Headlining the year ; Reporting the year filled with headlines was a tough order for the Northwest Missourian to fill The campus newspaper reported much of the same news as the local radio station and newspaper as well as the regional and state media " It helped our professionalism knowing we were standing next to the two guys from KQTV (St. Joseph television station), " said Suzie Zillner, editor. Headlines created a competitive spirit between the Missourian and the " real " news media. Since the campus newspaper only came out weekly and other newspapers were daily, with the radio stations having even a greater time edge, the staff was forced to dig deeper into newsmaking events. " Board of Regents meetings are on Wednesdays, and we get the stories in the Thursday afternoon edition, " said Zillner. ' So in this case, we compete with the local newspaper because we ' re published first. The radio station condenses the news, so even though they have the story first, we have more information. " Zillner also explained that even late news was important to print in the campus newspaper. " When Gov. Teasdale came to campus over Christmas, it was still news when the paper came out, even though it was late in January. Students were at home and may not have known the governor was even here, " she said. The biggest headline, the Administration Building fire, oc- curred during the summer. " The fire gave us an oppor- tunity that is rare to students, " said Cindy Sedler, co-editor of the summer Missourian. " Stories of such impact seldom happen on college campuses. It gave us an instant lesson in thorough cover- age on a tight schedule. " The fire was reported to officials about 8 p.m. on Tuesday and the staff ' s deadline was 8 a.m. Thursday, forcing them to cover the bulk of fire-related news on Wednesday " We produced six pages of an eight-page issue covering every imaginable angle of the fire in a little more than a day, which is more similar to a daily than a weekly. The whole staff really worked their tails off and went without sleep for 48 hours trying to meet the deadline, " said Sedler. While the Missourian strived to cover the campus headlines, the Nm hnlas Carlson publication made a few headlines of its own Starting in the summer, the paper ' s format was changed from tabloid to broad- sheet. " The change helped profes- sionalism and the coverage of news, " said Zillner. " The front page looks like a newspaper now instead of a newsmagazine. " The Missourian also made circulation changes Instead of piling the papers in academic buildings and the student union for students to pick up, one issue was placed in each student ' s mailbox, with small piles left around for off-campus students. " We cut our press run by 500 doing this, " said Zillner, " but we increased the overall circulation. " Two vending machines were placed in Maryville in January. Newspaper price was 10 cents out of the machine. " We wanted to make the Missourian available to people who are not affiliated with the University, but are still interested in what we are doing, " Zillner said. -Carole Patterson PART OF THE MISSOURIAN ' S income was from advertisement, so Tony Moles, second semester ad manager, strives to make his ads interesting and attractive ■Dave Cieseke -Dave Ci sekp We ' ve got you covered Making this year look different from last year became more important to the 1980 Tower staff after the 1979 book was voted one of the top yearbooks in the nation. The 1979 Tower received an Ali-American rating from Asso- ciated Collegiate Press and a medalist rating from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, both awards never achieved before by the Tower. These ratings were given to only 10 percent of college and university yearbooks in the country. However, rather than dwelling on last year ' s per- formance, the staff tried to produce a better book for 1980. " Since we had never received that high an award before, instead of trying to achieve that goal, we had to try to stay on top, " said Carole Patterson, assistant editor. " We have a reputation now as being an excellent publication. It ASSISTANT EDITOR Carole Patterson typesets a feature on the gas shortage. All body copy and captions were set on the Compugraphic typesetter by students. 248 was an incentive to improve the quality of the book. " While the staff was able to look at last year ' s Tower and see what they did right, they did not want to produce the same type of book. " We could look at last year ' s book and see what our good points and our bad points were and how we could improve on what we didn ' t like, " said Cindy Sedler, copy editor. " Once you ' ve got a book that is ranked as high as ours, it ' s hard not to make the next year ' s book a carbon copy of the year before, " Patterson said. " We wanted to make this book as individual and special as last year ' s. " The staff tried to make the 1980 Tower different through a variety of methods. The theme, the year in headlines, was displayed throughout the book, rather than just in the opening, closing and division pages. The overall design was also changed from last year. " We tried to make the copy different in each spread by focusing in on one central angle, instead of listing everything a department or organization did, " said Sedler. " The entire visual image is completely opposite of last year ' s book, " Patterson said. " The theme is strong and carries through every spread. I think we ' ve done a good job making the 1980 Tower a book that could never represent any other campus or any other year.

TOWER 249 Honoraries attract members Similar interests and academic achievement drew students to honorary organizations in their fields of study. Pi Gamma Mu, the social science honor society, began its first year of existence on campus; and according to group sponsor Christopher Kemp, it was a " fine " year. Kemp said the group ' s exis- tence came about when he found memories of his past experiences with the organization. " I was down in my basement one day and saw my certificate for Pi Gamma Mu and said, ' Hey, we should have one of these here. ' " For its first year on campus, the group accomplished big things during Homecoming. The organi- zation ' s president, Linda Eichin- ger, was the group ' s queen candidate and was a finalist in that competition. " We also won first place in the jalopy contest in the parade, " Kemp said. An older group on campus. Alpha Beta Alpha, a library science honorary, did not compete in Homecoming, but they had a book sale to bring members together. " We sold books anywhere from children ' s fiction to stamp books to posters and Sesame Street records, " said Amy Killings- worth, sponsor. " We sold the books to college and Horace Mann students. " With the money made from this project, the group was able to obtain a calculator for use in the Horace Mann library. Like Alpha Beta Alpha, SMSTA tried to work along the lines of their professional interests. This organization was the student organization of Missouri State Teachers Association and was a combined social and professional organization. " Our organization gets stu- dents ready to become part of a professional organization, " said Dr. Frank Grispino, sponsor. Alpha Mu Gamma also tried to provide a social outlet for its members. The foreign language fraternity tried to " foster interest in foreign language, " according to Steve Hawks, vice president. One of these ways was foreign dish dinners, and at its monthly meetings the group had speakers who had traveled to foreign countries. " We tried to have different programs at each monthly meet- ing, " said Beth Snyder, presi- dent. " We had an ' invite-a-foreign- student-to-dinner ' dinner where each member made a dish native to our guest ' s country, " Hawks said. " Then we all got together and ate dinner at Channing Horner ' s (group sponsor) house. " SMSTA. FRONT ROW: Barbara Hull, Jamie Manville, sec. treas.; Joyce Richardson, pres.

The Accounting Society tried to increase enrollment by providing a service not only to University students, but also to area residents. The club enacted the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance program. This program provided help for area residents in filing their 1040 and 1040A income tax form. According to Kevin Wagon- er, president, this proved to be a benefit for the community as well as the organization. " The program is Internal Revenue Service sponsored, " Wagoner said. " It doesn ' t cost us a thing, and it helped the group come together more. " Although Wagoner said apathy was a real problem with the organization, this program started getting more people involved. " I thought we would have trouble getting volunteers, " he said, " but 20 members decided to help us on this project, which was a lot more than I had expected. " Pi Beta Alpha also had its trouble with apathy, according to Kathy Baldwin, vice president. But this group tried to involve more members through a variety of events. " We participated in several things this year, " Baldwin said. " We had a house decoration at Homecoming, and we also had a team in the College Bowl, plus we went to the Waldo Astoria and a Royals game. But despite all of these activities we still had apathy within our organization. " This apathy prevailed despite the fact that membership in the organization increased. Events scheduled far in advance did not bring out more members. " Sometimes we plan an event a month ahead of time and then it seems like everyone has some- thing that interferes with it, " Baldwin said. According to Kirk Parkhurst, vice president of the Math Club, the reason apathy struck his group was the bad scheduling of meetings. " Besides the meeting times there was nothing else that could have effected our members ' participation, " he said. Like Accounting Society, the Math Club tried to do a service for the community, this time in recycling computer paper. " It was a service to the community and a money-making project for the group, " Parkhurst said. " We did fairly well, because you can get pretty good money for computer paper. " The Industrial Arts Club com- bated apathy by planning field trips and participating in Home- coming. As in the past few years, the group placed first for its float in the independent division. " We tried to get reorganized this year, " said Bob Potter, sponsor. " We wanted to get the club going and make it a little stronger than it has been in years past.

" The American Chemical Soci- ety allows members to see different aspects of a career in chemistry. We look at lab, teaching and analytical chemis- try, " said Eric Coovert. To explore different phases of science, the club members spon- sored a science essay contest for high school students. " The papers are written on a scientific aspect, and we judge them according to how much research and time was involved and what the essay pertained to, " said Coovert. An additional project of the American Chemical Society was improvement of the chemistry resource center. " By selling CRC handbooks, we raised money to buy general equipment for the center like blackboards and charts, " said Coovert. Also exploring different careers under one interest, the Pre-med Club worked to orient themselves toward a profession. " The club isn ' t just for pre-med majors but also for students who want a profession in a health- related field. We introduce speakers and put out an informa- tion bulletin in the field they are interested in such as vet school, " said Kevin Kackley. The members passed on in- formation and experience to younger members. " The club gives you an opportunity to associate with students of the same interests. We help prepare each other for entrance exams and familiarize ourselves with people in the field so we have a better chance of getting in, " said Kackley. Field trips also helped students acquaint themselves with the facilities available. " We visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. I benefited from the exposure and got an idea of the things that go on and how they work together inside a clinic, " said Ron Weis, president. Tri Beta, an honor fraternity in biology, was an academic-ori- ented group. " Our activities included having speakers on ecology and pi liution control. Some of ur social activities included a wiener roast, " said Kackley. The Geology and Geography Club was another career-oriented organization. " With our emphasis on careers in geology and geography, we took trips to grad schools and had talks on how to get in. Geologists and geographers are very employ- able right now because of the interest in energy sources, " said Kathy Smith. Though the fields seemed different, they had a general concern with resources. " Geographers are concerned with the planning while geologists concentrate on locating, " said Smith. One of the club ' s activities was a hike down the banks of the 102 River. " It gave us a better idea of the geological structure of this area and it was a nice autumn day. We wanted to have activities where members could learn and have fun, too, " said Smith. » CEOLOCY CEOCRAPHY.

For the " M " Club, reorganiza- tion was a main concern. " This is the second year that we ' ve reorganized the club, " said Greg Hawk, president. " There ' s been a lack of interest lately, but all the members are starting to get back into it. " The " M " Club ran ticket sales at varsity games, helped in the Muscular Dystrophy drive and printed the sports guides handed out at football and basketball games through its athletic fund. The club also held two banquets during the year in the Student Union Ballroom. " Our function is basically to keep the lettermen together, " Hawk said, " and we have about 85 to 100 members. " Bringing people together was also a function of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; but as Mark Harward, president, explained, it worked more toward giving the student a place to go to visit and relax. " We like to give young Christians a chance to get together and talk or sing, " he said. " We help people with their relationships with Christ. " FCA ' s 12 to 15 members also sang Christmas carols at area nursing homes, made a display for Parents ' Day, conducted conces- sions at a local basketball tournament and held a spring banquet with guest speakers. Delta Psi Kappa, the physical ' education honor fraternity, was concerned about more involve- ment, but also took a special interest in trying to devise more money-making projects for the future. It inducted eight new pledges, and its yearly project was to provide assistance at the Special Olympics held on campus. " It ' s getting to be really fun, " said Tammy Andersen, president. " We really had some great ideas for money-making projects and are excited about what lies ahead. " The Weightlifting Club pro- vided students with a chance to stay in shape through general exercise and experienced some noticeable improvement in recog- nition around campus. " Our goal is to provide a place where non-athletes can work out, " said Jim Probst, president. " Every year this club gets better. " The weightlifters bought new equipment for the weight room, held a banquet, a few parties and displayed posters around campus to motivate interest. Probst was excited about the increased membership and im- provement the club has shown. " It ' s getting more recognized on campus, " he said. " We had more group involvement this year than any other year.

It ' s like dancing in the water, " said Carol Kinyon, president. Although the pool has under- water speakers, the swimmers must learn to memorize beats and measures. " We have to know when to move at the same time, " said Kinyon. To add pizazz to the water show, swimmers wore leotards with sequins or different colors for effect and were aided by lighting techniques. " We use dimmer switches, black lights and spots. To really set a mood, the swimmer wears body lights, " said Barbara Ber- nard, Dolphin coach. " What some people don ' t realize is that you don ' t have to have previous training in synch- ronized swimming to join. We teach it, " said Kinyon. Another organization that did not require experience was the Flying Bearcats. Many of the members were student pilots, but some were merely interested in the field. " We try to teach a little safety about flying and promote interest in the field of aviation. Our meetings are open to everyone, " said Kurby Dawson, president. Through work projects, the Flying Bearcats raised money for field trips. The club planned to tour underground facilities at Offut Air Force Base in Omaha. A trip to Kansas City International Airport was also scheduled. " Dan Runde was one of our speakers this year. He teaches at the airport, and he talked on the basics of paratrooping along with demonstrations, " said Dawson. The Chinese Club may have had a more limited membership, but its purpose was wide open. Members worked to promote international understanding and were involved in tutoring Viet- namese boat people through the Baptist church. " They are concerned for these people who were forced to leave Vietnam. They are actually Mandarin Chinese, and it takes several translations of different languages to tutor them, " said Dr. Rose Ann Wallace, club sponsor. To promote better understand- ing of their culture, the members sponsored the movie " Kung Fu " in the union. " Also important, they stabilize each other. They get together on traditional holidays such as the Chinese New Year in February, " said Wallace. " We try to help each other based on the love we share with each other and for the Republic of China. We also hope that more people from overseas China will join us, " said Cheng-Wen Chen, president. The newly-formed Horticulture Club aimed most of its projects at service outlets. " Our first project last fall involved a total clean up of the agriculture greenhouse in prep- aration for open house on Parents ' Day. This turned out to be fairly successful, " said Diane Kahl, vice-president. Also in the interest of service, the club members landscaped the historical society museum. HORTICULTURE CLUB.

Composition was a requirement for all students. ■Sflk. E nrollment throughout the nation decreased in the 1970s, and North- west Missouri State University was no exception. Except for a couple of unexpected slight jumps, enrollnnent dropped and dropped. So when the fresh- man class increased 15 percent this year, the University was propelled into headlines. Through a recruitment effort, overall enrollment also increased at the campus. A total of 4,401 people converged on the University to create a total living atmosphere. Enrollment was not the only headline that was generated by people. The 1979 graduating class was the last class the 70s would see. Whether they were involved in fraternities, sororities, intramurals or just lived in the dorms and went to classes, each student was a part of the campus headlines. The rise of fall enrollment " College Never Looked Better " was the theme for student recruitment. From bumper stickers to calendars, the phrase became familiar to the entire University. Recruitment generated a five percent enrollment increase. The after-withdrawal statistics indicated a total enrollment of 4,401 compared to 4,207 last year. The recruitment process, headed by Admissions Director Charles Veatch, became a total campus project. " It wasn ' t just the staff and faculty, but the students and com- munity as well, " said Veatch. He also said the community had a greater awareness of recruitment. Veatch reported that this year ' s freshman class was the largest since 1972. Eleven-hundred twenty-one freshmen enrolled in the fall, which indicated a 14.5 percent increase. Veatch attributed the increase to several factors in the recruit- ment program. The formal high school visita- tion program was one of these. Two full-time recruiters, Teresa Ceglinski and Steve Sturm, visited approximately 400 high schools twice during the year. Another phase of recruitment was what Veatch called " the com- munication package. " This included letters to prospective students and follow-up informa- tion. All the letters on housing, financial aid and student life were included in this package. Several freshmen indicated that this was one of the things that influenced their decision for Northwest. Beth Malott, from Indepen- dence, Mo., said she received -Fr«nk W M»rcer several letters from the University. " We had a couple of recruiters come to our high school, " she said. Malott also liked the atmo- sphere and smallness of Northwest. An important part of recruit- ment was telephoning prospective students. " I personally feel that this was a very important aspect of recruit- ment, " said Veatch. Faculty members telephoned interested students to give them information about particular programs. Advertising in the College Outlook source book was another form of recruitment for Northwest. " It gave us a lot of exposure for a small amount of dollars, " said Veatch. The book was distributed throughout the country. Veatch said the large circulation created several leads for recruiters. Another process that will be continued was the four-part educational guide series. This series gave students guidelines in planning and selecting universities. An indirect means of recruit- ment was a blown-up calendar for high school guidance counselors. The calendar was posted for high school students to see when college recruiters made their visits. " We just have to stay with recruitment, " said Veatch. " It ' s a never-ending challenge. " -Bob Power A HIGH SCHOOL BAND participates in the Homecoming parade.

Lassiter was the recipient of the Reserve Officers Association Award from the Reserve Officers Training Corps 1979 summer basic camps. The award was presented to the one cadet who demonstrated outstanding qualities of leadership, moral character and high aptitude for military service. " The award ceremonies at graduation stuck out most in my mind, " Lassiter said. The luncheon for award recipients held the day before graduation had impact, as Lassiter sat next to the brigadier general. He got so excited he " lost his appetite. " " I had no thoughts of going into the Army. I just wanted to do something different for the summer, " said Lassiter, The ROTC basic camp offered college students a chance to participate in Army experiences without any further obligation Lassiter was first introduced to ROTC when students rappelling off of Colden Hall piqued his interest. He signed up for the basic mountaineering course. Through his enrollment in this class, he became eligible for canoe trips, ski trips and rappelling trips. ■ ' I feel I ' ve made a lot more options available to myself through ROTC, " said Lassiter, " such as the choice of going into active service, the reserves or the National Guard. I was also given a first-hand look at Army life as an officer, which is a lot different than that of an enlisted man " Lassiter explained that ROTC trained its individuals to fit into leadership positions. The enlisted men dealt with the " shoot ' em up bang-bang type stuff " while the officers backed the defense systems. Upon his commission as a second lieutenant after graduation from the ROTC program, Lassiter hoped to continue on in Army aviation, specifically " choppers. " " I ' ll first train as a pilot, and then I ' ll command the main pilot and crew, " said Lassiter. " I ' ll also oversee the training of the crew and the upkeep of the unit " --LeAnn Keenan MIKE LASSITER RECEIVES instruction from Sgt Regino Pizzaro in weapons and marksmanship Lassiter won an award for the outstanding ROTC cadet at summer basic camps Shprn Smith SENIORS 269 Barbara Dawson Tom Delancy Retta Denney Debbie Derks Doreen Dettman Tom Dinville Randy Dittmer Terri Dixon Trudy Dorrel Terri Durbin Richard Dyer Curt Eason Jeanne Eblen Kim Edson Linda Eichinger Michael Emanuele Joy Emery Phil Esposito Carol Estes Mark Euriet Brenda Evans Renee Evans Leslie Ewing Elizabeth Faber Kay Fast Bev Faust John Fay Betty Feldman Bobbie Felthousen Keith Ferguson Tammie Ferguson Kevin Fichter Debbie Fickess Cindy Fisher Jim Fitch Mike Flanery Effell Fluellen Linda Fordyce Susan Fost Jo Fousek Kathy Freese Lousie Fuchs 270 SENIORS DAWSON FUCHS |u(ii (iabi ' l Kevin Garrett Lisa Gates Shawn Geraghty Carolyn Gipe Kathy Glenn Julie Goodman Brenda Gordon Laurie Gourley Cynthia Graff Nancy Greely Marylan Green Flakey Students make their way to classes during the freak snowfall Oc- tober 22.

" I spent three and a half months living and working in Washington, DC, " Ferguson said. " The Washington Center for Learning Alternatives sponsors the program for college students all over the nation. Northwest could have sent up to five but only two went. WCLA rented an apartment building where most of the students lived. " Ferguson received 11 hours of academic credit working for a government agency and three more for a night course called " Toward a Better Urban En- vironment. " " I worked for the National Marine Fishery Service which is a branch of the National Oceanic Atmosphere Administration in the Commerce Department, " Fer- guson said. " It was a 40-hour-a- week job, so I was able to get some good experience. " Washington really was ail it is built up to be, according to Ferguson. " It ' s just like, one day, we were walking somewhere and we heard this helicopter overhead and saw it shining spotlights all over the area. Then we heard sirens and saw motorcyles, police cars and then a limosine and then more police. Inside were Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat. You can just walk anywhere and see people that you would only see on TV in Missouri. " In his spare time, Ferguson visited people and places. " A lot of the students just watched TV or something in their rooms, but ! figured I may never be in Washington again and I wanted to see and do everything that I could. " My roommate and I saw just about everything, and we got to hear Ted Kennedy speak and Ralph Nader, who is one of the most fabulous speakers I ' ve ever heard, " Ferguson said. " Prob- ably the highest government official I actually knew was Esther Peterson, President Carter ' s ad- visor on consumer affairs. " In every rosebush, however, there are thorns. " The cost of living in Washing- ton is extremely high, " Ferguson said, " and I couldn ' t write any personal checks anywhere. No banks accept checks because the crime rate is so high. Finally, I had to open an account at one of the banks. One really good thing, though, is that their transporation is really good. I didn ' t have a car there, so wherever I went I either had to walk, ride a bus or a subway, which there is plenty of access to. " One of the highlights of his stay in the capital city was attending church with President Jimmy Carter. " We didn ' t find out that he went to church just three blocks from where we lived until the last month. When we went, there were security men on top of the building and some with the president inside the building. Outside police were all over the place. " During his stay Ferguson learned a lot about government routine. " ! learned that the government is very slow, very wasteful and very, very political. Politicians don ' t necessarily do what they should do, but what somebody wants them to do. However, a lot of people have the impression that their money is being wasted, but there are a lot of dedicated people working for the benefit of the people.

But that was not all the senior broadcasting major won From the five national winners, she was chosen for a 10-week internship with Newsweek Broadcasting in New York City. " Deep down, 1 knew I was going to win the scholarship, " she said. " At the convention in Las Vegas, they asked us (the scholarship winners) if we wanted to do an internship in New York. Only three of us could and they put our names in a hat and they drew mine. All along though, I had a feeling they would pick my name. " None of this would have happened if Brown had not seen a flyer advertising the scholarship at the campus radio station. " It said the winners would get a free trip to the Radio and Television News Directors ' con- vention in Las Vegas, so I applied, " she said. Each entrant sent in original work written for the broadcast media. Brown ' s entry consisted of 15 minutes of scripted news. Five minutes of these were an in-depth report on a Missouri Highway Patrol training program for wives, a report that Brown not only wrote but aired herself. The rest of her entry consisted of various news stories she had written for KXCV. " Basically, the scholarship was awarded on my writing ability, " she said. " The panel of news directors also took into considera- tion the recommendations I sent along. " At the convention. Brown said she not only learned a lot, but made some contacts for possible jobs in the future. " The convention was great for making connections, " she said. " I met a lot of people from this area I had never met before A guy who runs a station in Topeka said I could have a job if I would apply. That really encourages a person " Brown said that the internship in New York was icing on the cake after winning the scholarship. The company she will be working for does syndicated television pro- grams. But after her internship, will she continue to work in television? " Right now, I want to work in news reporting, " she said. " But I may have to go back to graduate school if I can ' t find a good job.

No foreigner to the court Mette Terkelsen was not brought up with basketball, but basketball brought her to the United States. The 6 ' 1 " center from Copenhagen, Denmark, was recruited to the Bearkitten team by former women ' s coach John Poulson, who conducted summer basketball clinics in Denmark. Sports in Denmark contrasted with sports in the United States almost as much as Copenhagen, one of Europe ' s largest cities, did with Maryville ' s rural setting. " We admire the good facilities, but we feel maybe Americans are too involved in professional sports. There are other values in life, " Terkelsen said. In Denmark, sports and activities were stressed for fun and relaxation, not as careers. Sports were not as school-oriented and everyone participated, regardless of age. Terkelsen was not introduced to basketball until she was 14. Then, because of her height, she was told to play. " I did, and I like it, " she said. Her skill led her all the way to the Danish National team. Even with these credentials, Terkelsen does not plan on coaching when she returns to her homeland. But for her year in the United States, Terkelsen settled into the lifestyle of an American student. At first there was some confusion over the change from Danish, her native tongue. Denmark ' s univer sities have no dorms (students live in apartments), and the rules are more relaxed. Terkelsen plans to continue pursuing her degree in Scandinavian literature and her English minor at the University of Copenhagen when she returns home. Terkelsen said the economy differs greatly because the Danish have to buy all resources. This raises costs and makes material things harder to come by. Forty-five to 50 percent of all wages are taken in taxes there to pay for health, education and social services. Terkelsen chose Maryville because it was small and the people were friendly. Since she arrived she felt the most impressive feature was the scenery. " You can walk and see the river, sunsets and birds, " she said. Despite the scenic beauty, there is still no place like home for Terkelsen. " I am very far from home. I have my sentimental evenings, but I ' m more grown up. You don ' t know how good you feel at home until you ' ve gone, " she said. " The United States is exciting and interesting, but I wouldn ' t want to live here, " said Terkelsen. " I feel too Danish.

In fact, according to Christensen, " It was always. Would you please get off that piano, ' instead of Would you please practice. ' Christensen, who performed in such places as Crown Center in Kansas City, the Ground Round in St. Joseph and the benefit held for the Administration Building, said he enjoys playing ragtime music because it is a difficult style of piano playing. " It ' s a challenge, because with my left hand I ' ve got to be pounding the beat, and my right hand just has to dance freely with the music. " Ragtime music is unique and extremely rare in the scope of the modern musical world. " Like my piano teacher once told me: ' You can ' t be taught to play ragtime. It just has to come naturally. ' I think you just have to have a flair for it before you can play it well. " Christensen would like to make a career out of performing, but said a professional career was not a realistic expectation. " I don ' t think it ' s that solid of a profession to be in. I ' m support- ing myself through school now by playing, but I don ' t know if I ' ll always be that lucky. It ' s not a nine-to-five job, and it certainly isn ' t always steady work, " said Christensen. Christensen ' s favorite ragtime composer is Scott Joplin. " That ' s why I enjoyed playing at Crown Center this past summer. The promotion was IN HIS SPARE TIME, Brooks Christensen practices ragtime music meant to show off Missouri, and that ' s where ragtime music got off to a start. Joplin wrote most of his pieces in Sedalia, Mo., and I think ragtime is one of Missouri ' s most valuable historic assets. " According to Christensen, the popularity of ragtime music will never fade as a number of musical fads have a tendency to do. " People will always enjoy good ragtime music. There are a lot of good pianists, but few good ragtime players. Even in its day, there were few good ragtime players. " Christensen described playing ragtime music as a method of relaxation. ' " When Tm mad or nervous, I just sit down and play. When I do this, it relaxes me and gives me a good feeling. " However, ragtime music is anything but relaxing and tran- quil. " Ragtime music is a happy, rapidly-moving music, " Christen- sen said. " I ' ve noticed my audience has a hard time doing something else besides listening to it when I play. They ' re interested in what you ' re doing because they don ' t hear it every day. It ' s something they can relate to.

Shattering the mirror image Crowing up can be difficult with an older or younger sibling, but what would it be like to grow up with a brother or sister the same age? Randy and Ronnie Jackson found that being twins wasn ' t that different. " We don ' t know any other way, " said Randy. " We never have the problem with one of us trying to boss the other around. There ' s no older or younger one between us. " The Jacksons moved to seven different schools during their elementary years. " We didn ' t have a problem being twins, " said Ronnie. " But everyone else did. When we were in first grade, we both tried out for the wolf part in Little Red Riding Hood. Actually, Randy was better for the part, but the teacher didn ' t want to hurt either of us, so we had two wolves. " When the Jacksons entered college, Ronnie changed majors from pre-iaw to speech theater with a double minor in English dance. Randy was a theater psychology major, Ronnie said he found it harder to adjust to college life than Randy did. " I really had a tough time meeting people, " said Ronnie. " Randy would come home and tell me all the people he met all day, and I really felt out of it. " But both found their niche in the theater department. Randy and Ronnie were interested in theater, but they had different interests elsewhere. Randy was more into literature and music, while Ronnie was the dancer. The Jacksons found they were never bored when they were growing up. They always had each other. " We never lacked company. When we were in elementary school, we kept to ourselves a lot; not because we weren ' t in need of friends, but it eased the pain of breaking up friendships when we moved. This way we never had to orient ourselves to others, " said Ronnie. The Jacksons said their friends and teachers at college had no problem identifying them. " When we had glasses, they could tell us apart easily, " said Randy. " Now we both have contacts, so it is a little harder for those who don ' t know us. " The Jacksons found only one thing they really disliked about being twins: being an individual. " When anyone thinks of us it isn ' t just ' Randy, ' " said Ronnie, " but it is always ' Randy and Ronnie. ' " " It is always two and never one, " said Randy. Both felt that there was a fair amount of competition between them, but not kill-for-blood competition. " Ronnie was more studious, " said Randy, " but I usually got the better parts. I guess there was a line of competition, but not so much anymore. Our attitudes toward each other are better. " -Bob Power RANDY AND RONNIE Jackson practice an acting scene.

I Clearing the hurdles Sandi Smith had a hurdle to cross, and broadcasting seemed to be the boost she needed When I was young, I was pretty shy, " said Smith. " I wanted something to help me overcome that shyness. " Always ready to meet a challenge head on, Smith fought her shyness by becoming interest- ed in broadcasting at the age of 13. " Some of the things the DJ ' s did on the air amazed me, " she said. So Smith began calling local radio stations in Des Moines to enter contests. Her frequent calls earned her what she now calls her " big brother in radio. " " This local disc jockey named Bill Allen put me on the air and made a bet with me If I could stand on a basketball, then I would win two record albums, " said Smith. And with practice, Smith not only won herself the albums but a good friend as well. With these experiences, Smith began to meet more people within the broadcasting field and became familiar with what they did. However, it was not until her senior year in high school that she was given a job at KC-14 in Des Moines. " I was given a job in the newsroom, which really wasn ' t what I wanted, but I was glad to have it, " she said. Smith ' s work did not go unnoticed. The station ' s general manager kept an eye on her and one day asked if she wanted to go on the air. " I was given a Sunday morning shift of running tapes, so about the only announcing I did was public service announcements. But I was lucky to be on the air, so IN THE KDLX station, Sandy Smith gets another song ready to play Besides working on the campus radio station, Smith is a song writer It didn ' t bother me. " Smith was gradually worked into the album-oriented format of KC-14 until they changed formats in March 1979. The format was changed to a block format, so they decided to devote weekends to disco. " Since I was a weekend D), it was inevitable that I would become known as the ' Disco Lady. " ' Being the " Disco Lady " was somewhat uncomfortable for her, since she was not a fan of disco music. " I was very much a rocker, so playing disco really mellowed me out, " said Smith. " Even now, disco sounds all the same to me. " Although the experience she gained with these jobs was satisfying to Smith, she wanted to continue with her education and decided on NWMSU because of the broadcast facilities. " I looked at a lot of other colleges and universities, and 1 decided upon Northwest because it has the best facilities and best instructors anywhere, " she said. The inner expression of feelings has never been a problem for Smith. Besides broadcasting. Smith is also something of an amateur songwriter. " I ' ve always loved to write poetry because it helps me express my feelings and emo- tions, " said Smith. These words were put into song when Smith met and became friends with a songwriter named Michael Stone. " It was like magic, " she said. " Michael read one of my poems and then sang it. He knew exactly what I was trying to say and he put the words to music. " Not only did he understand her feelings, but when he surprisingly performed one of Smith ' s songs at the Iowa State Fair, a major recording artist was in the audience and was impressed. " Because of this experience, Michael will be performing a lot more of my songs, and some will eventually be recorded. " Because of broadcasting and songwriting. Smith has overcome most of her shyness. Was it much of a challenge for her? " Yes, it was . But I have always liked challenges, and with this one I ' ve found something I want. A lot of people envy me for the experience I ' ve gained, " said Smith. " But I know I got there by my own hard work and that ' s what is important. " Life has been good to Smith, and broadcasting has given her something to work for. " I guess it all boils down to liking myself. If you don ' t like and believe in yourself, then you ' re not going to get very far in life. " For Sandi Smith, there are not that many hurdles to cross before she reaches the finish line. --KenWilkie L I Brent Palmer Jolene Palmquist Teresa Paquette Sandra Parker Kirk Parkhurst Ann Parman Tamara Parman Debi Parsons Jody Partridge Alan Paup Laura Payn Tom Peacock Susan Pearson Mary Peeler Lana Peters Tim Peters Lori Peterson Rodney Peterson David Peugh Pam Peve Cynthia Pfeiffer Lorenzo Phillips Charlene Pie!

" I have traveled world-wide from Australia to South Amer- ica, " said Conklin, who traveled to Kenya with her mother, " and since we had never been to Africa we wanted to go " Every day wa? spent in a jeep on safari around Kenya or on the Tancania border in east Africa, Conklin said. " Our days began at 6 a.m. and ended around midnight, " she said. " We spent most of our time photographing the animals. We saw mostly giraffes and zebras, and one time I photographed a giraffe .only 15 feet away, " said Conklin. The most exciting place they visited, according to Conklin, was in Nyeri at a place called Tree Tops. It was similiar to a treehouse, built on tree tops in which she stayed and observed the wild animals. " It was an extremely dangerous area out in the heart of the country, and we were guarded by guns the entire time, " said Conklin. " There was a waterhole that drew the animals near, and we observed their behavior and actually saw some of them fighting one another " Besides spending a night at Tree Tops, they spent time shopping in the market place, in which she purchased many items made of mohogany, Kenya ' s chief wood. Conklin also stayed with the natives in their grass huts. Since Conklin ' s major is family rela- tions, she used this opportunity to interview the natives about tribal culture. " In every place we visited, we were treated like royalty. They acted very proper and everything was said with a ' please. ' They all spoke English, but with a very European accent, " she said. " Over there they value their animals like we value other people. The punishment can be death if you take an animal ' s life other than in self-defense. If you are caught with ivory or kill an elephant for its ivory you can be sent to jail, " said Conklin. Her impression of the natives was that they do not want to become industrialized and that they are happy in their ways. The women do most of the work and are in charge of the household. In some tribes, some men have as many as eight wives. ' One of the funniest things that happened was while we were trying to photograph some bab- oons. They chased us, chased one another and really hammed it up as if they knew they were being photographed, " she said. -Allison Stock DEBORAH CONKLIN SPENT an unusual Thanksgiving vacation in Kenya She said she and her mother went there because they had never been to Africa before ' ■-I -riicholas Carlson UNDERGRADUATES 311 Janet Watkins Russ Watrous Peggy Watson Yolanda Watson Jane Wayman Iris Wazny Jayne Weaver Julie Webb Lisa Weddingfeld Teresa Weeda Say uncle The Beast applies pressure on The Avenger ' s head during an All-Star wres- tling match.

She does fulfill many secretarial duties; however, she is also secretary to the Board of Regents and is properly titled administrative assistant. Zirfas began her career at Northwest. After she graduated from the laboratory school in the spring of ' 51, Zirfas became a clerk in the registrar ' s office. She remembers the time when there was no admissions office. Whoever wanted to go to school just showed up at the registrar ' s office on registration day. " It wasn ' t that hard. Of course the enrollment wasn ' t as great as it is now, " she said. " Then we could generally call each and every student by his first name and remember him whenever he came in. " In 1958 Zirfas became the assistant registrar, under registrar Dr. Robert Foster. In 1960 when Foster became dean of administration, Zirfas became his secretary. She went with Foster to the president ' s office when he became president in 1964. " I missed seeing the kids as I had when I worked in the registrar ' s office, but I still enjoyed the job I was doing. " Zirfas witnessed many changes during her years at Northwest. " When I first came here, I thought the fraternity and sorority system seemed real strong, " she said. " Then there was a time that the Creeks didn ' t seem as strong. Now 1 think they ' re getting stronger again. " Zirfas said these changes and others have occurred because of the growth of the campus community. " 1 doubt if kids would be interested in having freshman and senior receptions anymore, " said Zirfas. Despite the growth in the enrollment, Zirfas still classified Northwest as a close-knit group. " I think that is the unique thing about this campus, " she said. Zirfas has also noticed the obvious changes in the material structures on campus. During the Foster era, she saw the construction of the new dorms, science building and the new industrial arts building. " That ' s one thing I have enjoyed with my job, seeing and being involved with the growth, " said Zirfas. When Zirfas left campus, she went home to her farm. " That ' s what I like, to come home, put on my jeans and help my husband in the field or in the garden and just leave my job on campus. This way I have the best of two worlds, " she said. How does one person stay at the same job for 28 years and still enjoy it? " Day after day, year after year, it ' s the people that, keep me going, " Zirfas said. -Bob Power MONICA ZIRFAS SETS UP AN appointment time for a student to meet with Dr B.D. Owens.

" It ' s an outlet for me, " said Christopher Kemp. Kemp, who teaches a course in the martial arts and sponsors the martial arts club at the University, also served as a Green Beret in the 187 Airborne Battle Croup Special Operations in the Middle East and the Special Forces Detachment in Europe. " I was in a behind-the-Iines special operations group, " Kemp said. " The martial arts were used as a tool, a silent way to replace ammunition. You don ' t Todd Reifschnieder want to make a lot of noise when you ' re sneaking up on somebody. " Kemp volunteered for the Creen Berets and became a part of what he calls guerrillas and counter-guerrillas. As a softspoken, non-aggressive person, Kemp does not appear to be the terrorist type. " There are very few macho men in the special forces, Kemp said. " Most are mild and very pleasant people. " His experience with the special forces made Kemp " more aggressive. It gave me self-discipline and self-confidence. " You get more relaxed and confident and less vulnerable in psychologically stressful situations. The training makes you more aggressive at times when you should be more aggressive, " Kemp said. Kemp is a member of the United States Judo and Karate Associations. He has achieved first-level black belt in both judo and kendo and second-level black belt in karate and jujitsu. The black belt is the highest level of skill and contains 10 levels, 10 being the highest. The first five levels are primarily for performance, and obtaining the first and second levels is a fairly large accomplishment in the United States, according to Kemp. Students enrolled in Kemp ' s self defense course cannot expect to reach even the first level of skill, the yellow belt. The purpose of the class is to learn the basics of martial arts. Rank may be obtained in the Martial Arts Club. Ten people were in the club, which Kemp started seven years ago. To become proficient in the martial arts, " a person must be physical, " said Kemp. " He must like to use his body. Strength is not necessary, and the person should be aggressive but not hostile or violent. " The martial arts serve as a release of aggression, according to Kemp. " You can ' t be tense, " he said. " There is an emphasis on relaxation. If you ' re hostile you just want to hit people and jump around, and you ' ll end up getting hurt. You can become quite proficient in the martial arts and never hurt anyone or get hurt yourself. " The Japanese masters and anyone who is extremely proficient in martial arts is non-violent. " The more you know in the martial arts, the less of a chance you ' ll use it, " Kemp said. -Carole Patterson SELF DEFENSE INSTRUCTOR Christopher Kemp demonstrates a blow to Chris Mackey at a Martial Arts Club session Club members can obtain skill ranks, which range from yellow to black belt. 316 FACULTY n Zelma Akes Dr Virgil Albertini Dr. Wayne Amsbury Dr Mark Anderson Dr Berndt Angman David Bahnemann Dr John Baker George Barratt David Bauman Dr John Beeks Kathryn Belcher Robert Bellamy Dr Robert Bohlken Ann Brekke Dr Jerry Brekke Robert Brown Dr Edward Browning Dr Sharon Brownrng Dr. Gary Cameron Thomas Carneal Dr, Hp ' .nan Collins Dr Rof er Corley David Coss Jane Costello Robert Craig David Crozier Ron Dahl Dr. Guy D ' Aurelio Dr Gary Davis Dr Elwyn DeVore Dr David Easteria Dr Roger Epley Dr Ed Farquhar Ronald Ferris Robert Findley Dr. William Fleming Larry Floyd Dr Carrol Fry Captain John Fry Dr Richard Fulton Dr Eugene Galluscio Dr James Gates FACULTY AKES CATES 317 Dr. Paul Gates Dr. George Gayler Susan Cille Dr Jim Cleason Craig Goad Mary Goad Robert Gregory Dr. Frank Grispino Richard Hackett Dr. William Hale Harold Hamilton Charles Hawkins Dr. Henry Hemenway Diane Hicks Dr. William Hinckley Dr George Hinshaw Lynne Hooker Channing Horner Peeping Toms University maintenance workers paint the trim on the J.W.

MORTON AND JEAN KENNER discuss a slide show they produced on metrics The Kenners are both instructors in the Math and Computer Science Division. ■-Nicholas Carlson Married to their work Unlike couples who know little or nothing about what their partner does at work, Dr. Morton and Jean Kenner share the importance of their jobs. Both are mathematics instructors. " We shared a whole body of concerns that we were knowledge- able about, " said Dr. Kenner. " By working in the same area, there was a common bond that was always there, perceived, shared and understood. When you work with someone, it ' s much easier to share things that are important in life-both the joys and frustrations. " Working together proved unify- ing for the Kenners. " In many ways it helped keep us close together, " said Dr. Kenner. " Married 26 years and our kids gone, we shared common values and the importance of education. This bond of sharing our work was always there and kept us together. " " It worked very well for me, " said Mrs. Kenner. " We had worked together in mathematics before, two years in Nirobe. Also, we had written film strips together for many years at Southern University before we were in the same department. " At work, Mrs. Kenner was " another staff member. " " We ' ve learned to keep sep- arate professional and personal matters, " said Dr. Kenner. " We had long experience doing that so there was no problem. " " We maintained relative in- dependence and were usually on opposite sides of the fence on votes that came up, " said Mrs. Kenner. The Kenners also shared concern for students. " Our house was always open to students, " said Dr. Kenner. " The Math Club held parties at our home, seminars were held at our home, and students stopped in to say hello. Also, Mrs. Kenner sponsored student activities. " Since Mrs. Kenner was a " day person " and Dr. Kenner was a " night person, " their division was important to them. " The division was the center of our universe, " said Dr. Kenner. " Home tends to emphasize neither. " -Charles E.

" School and debate come iirst, " Leu said. " My primary job IS teaching. " Leu, the University ' s debate coach and assistant professor in speech, was also an assistant prosecuting attorney for Missouri and Nodaway County He was also the prosecutor for Maryville. But he tried not to let his other jobs interfere with his teaching. " I only take work from the state and county when I don ' t have prior obligations, " he said. " My lawyer work is strictly part-time. " Leu, who graduated from the -Ldura Blomberg University of Missouri-Kansas City with a law degree in 197.5, said he decided to become a prosecutor just to keep in practice. " It is not an elected position, " he said. " When the vacancy came up I decided to keep my finger in law, so I grabbed it. " Leu said being a lawyer helped him prepare for coaching debate. " Most of the debaters are interested in becoming lawyers, " Leu said. " I ' m able to help them to pick classes that will help them in the future. I also think I ' m in better touch with them. Nerves are a problem with them, and I can sympathize with them be- cause I still have nerves when I speak in front of a court. I still make mistakes and can under- stand it when they do. " Not only has law helped Leu in debate, but debate has helped him in law. " I was a debater in college, " Leu said. " It was very useful to me and helped me become a better lawyer. " Besides working for the govern- ment as a lawyer. Leu also gave advice to University students, personnel and departments. But he said that he was not in it for the money. " I ' m not an attorney who will take a case from anyone who walks into my office, " he said. " I think I have been able to help a lot of students in anything from divorce to landlord problems to employment to collection agen- cies. I tell them where they stand and what they can do. Most of them don ' t need a lawyer If they do, 1 direct them to somebody in town. " Leu also said that he sometimes helped various departments at the University. " I frequently have the op- portunity to use my law back- ground for some of the depart- ments, " he said. " I just give them advice and hints on what they should do. " But in the end. Leu said that it all came back to cJebate and teaching. " If I have a conflict between the two jobs, I almost always pick the University over law, " he said -DaveCieseke DR J AMES LEU coordinates discussion on a topic with the debate team Besides coaching the debate squad, Leu is also a prosecuting attorney for Nodaway County, Maryville and Missouri.

It started early in November and was continuing as Easter approached with no end in sight It began when Iranian students seized the American Embassy in Teheran and held the embassy employees captive. This was brought on when the United States government allowed the disposed Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi into the country for medical treatments. The militants held the embassy, demanding his return in exchange for the hostages The government refused and the hostages remained in cap- tivity Talk of sending in the Marines was dismissed when President Jimmy Carter decided to seek a peaceful solution to the drama When everything looked bleak, new hope came just before Thanksgiving. The militants re- leased six women and black hostages, saying that these two groups had been oppressed in the United States But still the crisis continued, and the attention of the country and the world was on Teheran. All ' eyes were on the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, for it was by his command that the hostages would or would not be released Hope was raised, then thwarted ' .when the Shah left the United iStates for Panama The militants DURING THE EARLY DAYS of the American Embassy takeover, Iranian stu- IHdents protest American policv in Iran Still demanded his return for trial in Iran before the hostages would be released. As Christmas approached, the United States was still trying to solve the crisis in a peaceful manner, but Carter decided it was time to toughen up the act somewhat. Iranian assets in the United States were frozen, and an oil embargo was placed on Iranian oil. Still the crisis continued, and the president decided to go ahead with United Nations sanctions against Iran. But these actions seemed to have little, if any, effect on the situation As the holiday season arrived, Christmas cards began arriving at the embassy from sympathetic Americans. Three United States clergymen were allowed to enter the embassy to insure that the hostages were able to spend Christmas religiously, but any hopes that this might end the crisis were soon dashed. The new year began and the hostages were still heading the news, but soon that news was coming solely from foreign cor- respondents, as Iran ' s govern- ment banished all American iournalists from the country for biased reporting. United Nations Secretary Gen- eral Kurt Waldheim tried to solve the situation, but his first trip to Teheran was meet with threats on his life. When he left Iran ' s capital, the situation was no better. When Aboihassan Bani Sadr was elected Iran ' s president at the end of January, he said he would bring the crisis to a swift end, but that was not to be. Then an international commission was formed to look into Iran ' s charges against the Shah and the United States. It didn ' t do much to help the situation either. About the only thing that Americans had to be thankful for in the new year was the daring escape of six Americans from Teheran under the disguise of Canadians. When the embassy was first taken over by militants, these six escaped capture and evidently found sanctuary in the Canadian Embassy. When Can- ada closed its embassy in Iran, the six sneaked out of the country with Canadian visas. It was a moment of joy for Americans, but soon their attention was brought back to the crisis in Iran. A warm greeting for Pope John Paul II Last October five major cities in the United States were hosts to one of the most popular men in the world. Pope John Paul II made an historic tour of the United States, stopping at Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington, DC. But a unique stop for the pontiff was his brief visit to the farmlands of Iowa. Nearly 350,000 people con- verged on the 600-acre Living History Farms just west of Des Moines. A group of 21 Catholics from the University ' s Newman House attended the historic event, accompanied by Father Chuck Jones. Leaving Maryville at 5:30 a.m., the travelers were enroute to what would become one of the most important days in Midwest history. The pope ' s visit was the first time a pontiff had been in Iowa or even the Midwest. " Popes have been so aloof in the past, " said Jones. " If you wanted to see a pope, you had to go to Rome. But, here, he came to us. " Celebrating Mass on a clear, crisp, autumn day. Pope John Paul II spoke of the necessity of the rich Midwest farmlands. " Conserve the land well, so that your children ' s children and generations after them will inherit an even richer land that was entrusted to you, " he said. The pontiff ' s stop in Iowa was perhaps the most ecumenical of his tour. A sign reading " Luth- erans Love You, Too, John Paul " was only one such sign seen in the enormous crowd. The mass ended with the crowd singing " America the Beautiful. " As quickly as he arrived, the pope was back into his plane, heading for Chicago. Even though the day started out cold and windy, it ended with a warm sunset. Most people left feeling refreshed and renewed. People everywhere agreed that the day encompassed all religions, not just Catholicism. " You can ' t describe how it feels to be with all those people who feel the same way you do, " said Terri Clear, one of the students who made the trip. " It really reinforced your faith in man- kind. " POPE JOHN PAUL II greets the 350,000 people at the Living History Farms in Des Moines. ll BASMTHAU BtARKITUN S4. 100, 101. 102.

Consequently, the prime lending rate charged by some major banks rose as high as I6V2 percent. Business borrowers were mainly affected by this increase, but home buyers and savers felt the pinch as well. Another high came in the form of a 1.6 percent increase in producer prices in the month of January, the highest in five years. The prices of precious metals and oil were credited for a large portion of the jump This increase compared with last year ' s average monthly jump of one percent. Significant increases were felt in the prices of capital equipment, a 16 percent rise; gasoline up 5.7 percent; and cars, a two percent increase. Economists said that these negative aspects of inflation meant a thrust toward recession since added inflation caused a A NORTHWEST STUDENT fills his gas tank J with S1 10-a-gallon gasoline at Dew ' s Conoco. decline in consumer purchasing power that resulted in a drop in purchases. The United States ' gross national product was anticipated to fall one percent this year as the country went into a slight recession, consumer prices were expected to climb to 10.4 percent and unemployment 7.5 percent. The doubling of oil prices was a large contributor to this increase, along with energy and housing costs. Involved directly with inflation- ary increases was the rising price of gold. The price shot up all over the world, at one point reaching $748 an ounce in New York. Dealers predicted a price reaching as high as $1,000 an ounce.

Reports of when the big day would occur changed almost daily, but finally the largest man-made object ever launched into space came burst- ing through the earth ' s atmos- phere in multi-colored fireballs, broke up and dumped 20 tons of fiery metal into the Indian Ocean and onto the desolate scrublands of Australia. For weeks, international atten- tion focused on Skyiab ' s inevi- table plunge. Some of this attention was generated in a light-hearted manner by Skylab helmets and parties in honor of its fall. But sincere concern over the damage the 77.5-ton space station could cause to a heavily populated area was in the back of everyone ' s mind. But everyone-especially NASA-breathed a sigh of relief when no injuries occurred. Skylab, launched in 1973, was manipulated as a workshop by three crews of astronauts. It was expected to remain in flight until 1983, but a flare-up of solar activity caused the earth ' s atmo- sphere to rise, creating a drag on Skylab. NASA ' s new space shuttle could have been used to transport a shuttle crew into space so that a rocket motor could have pushed Skylab back into orbit, but the shuttle experienced its first " operational flight slip " and was of no use. It seemed that NASA could do nothing right. When the operation sent Skylab up, it was the concern of the United States; but when it was ready to come down, the whole world was concerned, and most of the world was not pleased. The British Royal Aircraft Estab- lishment predicted in 1973, when Skylab was first launched, that it would return to haunt the earth in 1979, not 1983 as American scientists projected. But it went up anyway. Although scientists were aware of weakening on-board controls in the early years of Skylab, launching a missile into space to blow the station up would have caused more hazardous conditions than if the station fell on its own. It was reported in several publications that some Austral- ians were offended by the debris that hit the continent. They were offended that NASA delayed the fall so that it missed heavily populated areas but hit them. NASA handled the criticism throughout the ordeal, however, defending and regretting at the same time. They took a gamble when they sent it up; and they said they would not be willing to tempt fate again, assuring every- one there would not be another Skylab incident. 330 INDEX Gary E ciley 292 K imberli E ddins 292 Rodney Edgp 292 in K ini E dson 270 1 J 1 EDUCATION DIVISION 134. 135. v4 136. 137 ■ i linda Eichmger iS. 225. 250. 270 L K ent E isenhauer 234 Dixie E itel 292 1 ayme E lias 292 Dean Elliot 210. 211 KenElliod 256 Teresa E llis 292 1 im E ly 20b LizFaber 33, 270 Tim Ely 150.254 Cathy Fair: 200, 217, 218. 237 Michael E manuele: 270 Chyung-Houy Fang 258 Loonie E mard 292 John Farmer 257 1 oy E mery 270 Palruid Farmer: 214, 292 AN EMPHASIS ON CAREERS 254.

Pennsylvania Gov. Richard Thornburgh faced the possibility of evacuating a section of his state as plant officials raced to remedy I the problem. The sudden appearance of a large hydrogen bubble in the core I of the reactor was the initial cause of the gas leakage. Occasional " puffs " of radioactive gas es- caped during the first five days, causing a jump in the level of radiation amounting to 15 milli- rems. A large uncontrolled puff escaped March 30, sending the needle from two to 90 millirems and back down again. The puff appeared while two workers, trying to reroute plumbing at the plant, opened a pipe full of radioactive gas. The gas escaped, giving the workers 1,500 milli- rems of radiation each No one was seriously over- exposed to the radiation, injured or killed, utility officals reported. However, the public had already taken active stands against the building and the opening of nuclear plants. " There is no need to build anymore nuclear plants, " said Richard Landes, University chem- istry instructor. " Our problem is in conserving what resources we already have. I am opposed to the use of nuclear power to produce electricity because of its effects on_ the environment, two of which are the heat it causes to our bodies of water and the question of what to do with the radioactive wastes. Its effects on the environment and the fact that it is unsafe were proven by the Three Mile Island accident. " H INDEX 331 Uncle Sam wants YOU Uncle Sam has changed his mind. After several years with no draft, the registration for the draft was reinstated. In his State of the Union address, President Jimmy Carter announced that registration for the draft would be revitalized as a precautionary measure. He as- sured the nation that he only wanted people registered in case of a wartime emergency. Carter said that if any threatening forces moved into the Persian Gulf, he wanted American troops ready to defend it. NORTHWEST STUDENTS express their opinion on the draft at a Students Against the Draft meeting in February. " Nicholas Carlson Then in February, Carter made another dramatic announcement. The registration for the draft would be limited to those between the ages of 19 and 20, However, Carter wanted women as well as men to register for the draft. At the University, members of Students Against the Draft met to discuss the issue. Charter mem- bers Don Wallace and Randy Wheeler claimed that the draft was not necessary unless the United States or some country supporting the United States was actually attacked. The main issue of the SAD meeting was whether the country should go to war over the Persian Gulf. " IK " BEFORE A CLASH with anti-draft Columbia University students, a pro-draft student waves an American flag. Student opinion on the draft varied. " I supposed I ' d go if I had to, " said Mike Gardner, " but if I could get out of it, I would. " Dr. Eugene Galluscio, head of the psychology department, said students ' acceptance of resistance to the draft depended on whether the nation was threatened. " With the recent events, the students would be less resistant to a draft now than before, " said Galluscio. " There ' s a direct relationship between how palat- able a draft is and the perceived threat to the country. I think the attitude for the draft six months ago was very different from that of today for the general public. " Women ' s reactions to the draft were also wide-ranged, some saying they would resort to extremes in order to avoid it. " I ' d probably get pregnant, " said Jennifer Miller. i Dewilt Fcxreslet 21 Susan Fost 270 CraiK Foster 212 DR ROBERT FOSTER 77. 100. 101. 102, UH. 104 105. iU K Jthv Founiain 2 loFouseli 211, 230. 270 DuaneFouts 259 Tom Fowler 294 Nancs Fw 237 Sieve Fox 204. 237 Beltv Francis 251 Tom Franke 163. 202 Mortv Freeman 234. 294 K athv F reese 270 Bob French 202 EDGAR FRIEND 315 Knsten Fries 64. 213. 294 Barbara Frisble 221, 294 FROM RAGS TO RICHES 172. 173. 174. 175. 176. 177 Debbie Frost 294 Greg Frost 193. 257, 294 Mark Frost: 179 DR CARROl FRY 57, 317 CAPT lOHN FRY 317 Rhonda Fry 232, 294 Louise Fuchs: 252. 270 lim Fuhrman: 234 Leonard Fullbright: 225.253 I I Fulsom 222. 223 DR RICHARD FULTON: 125.317 FUN PRODUCTION 222,223 Lori funk: 214. 294 leffFuson: 294 Donna Caa 294 Cheryl Gabbert 294 JudiGabel 252. 271 Tim Cach: 225. 294 Larry Gaer: 231. 294 Gary Caetti 163 Douglas Cage: 202 Diane Gallagher 294 Dianna Gallagher 294 Lezhe Gallagher: 207.215,259 DR EUGENE GALLUSCIO 122, 123. 124. 255. 317 Lana Galm: 294 E mily Ganley: 294 Linda Carand 12. 91 Adan Garcia 206. 294 Tern Card 294 Leesa Garner 294 Debbie Garnett 294 Anita Garrelh 217, 294 Christ!

The eastern section of Mana- gua, Nicaragua, was the scene of heavy fighting between the government ruled by Anastasio Somoza Debayle and Sandinista guerrillas. A Sandinista takeover was feared because an undeter- mined number of guerrillas were known to be Marxist. Since September 1978, when the tumultuous power struggle erupted between Somoza ' s Na- tional Guard and the guerrilla forces of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, Washington officials had attempted to prompt Somoza to step down from his presidency by subtle strategies and quiet measures. But the continued bloodshed in Managua convinced officials that unless it stopped, Somoza could be over- thrown and the Nicaraguan government taken over by the Sandinista front. But throughout most of the summer the battle raged on, with feeble mediation attempts, as Somoza ' s opposition tried to put an end to four decades of his family ' s rule. Now, almost a year later, Somoza is residing in Florida. The seesaw war left Nicaragua in shambles. Last summer the Red Cross estimated that more than 10,000 people died and as early as May there were 600,000 people short of food. In Managua, 74,000 homeless people packed into refugee centers and 100,000 more lined up every day for half-rations of beans, cornmeal, rice and lard It will be years before Nicaragua ' s economy will be stable again, with hundreds of thousands of jobless people. Despite the astounding death figures, it was the death of one American which generated great resentment and controversy. The war-time trauma hit home when ABC correspondent Bill Stewart and his Nicaraguan interpreter were murdered while covering the civil war. According to reports and film clips, Stewart was advancing to a government barricade, displaying press credentials and a white flag, when one guardsman motioned Stewart and his interpreter back. Stewart cautiously and slowly continued his approach and a guard instructed him to kneel down. Other guards seized and dragged Stewart ' s interpreter behind a nearby house where he was shot. Stewart was then told to lie face down, which he did without resistence. The guard proceeded to kick him in the ribs, after which Stewart was instruct- ed to put his hands on his head The guard then walked toward him and shot him in the head. Although network correspon- dents withdrew from Managua, the CBS network let its reporters decide if they wanted to stay. More than 70 foreign correspon- dents signed a letter of protest in connection with the slaying, and the shocking stories poured onto the wire services. The national guard who mur- dered Stewart was arrested, though he claimed he was not present at the scene of the murder. Investigations proved otherwise. But the death of one American journalist did not stop the war. Nicaraguan unrest continued, reporters and cameramen began new assignments, and Bill Ste- wart ' s funeral service became history.

As usual, the games were plagued by politics and contro- versy. No sooner had they started than the Taiwan team walked out after the International Olympic I Committee stated they could join in the festivities only if they irticipated under a different iag, name and national anthem. Controversy was also stirred by lie lack of buses transporting fans u and from the events. The situation got so bad that New York IV Hugh Carey was forced to •dare a limited state of mergency. The bus system broke (iown so badly that the lives of those waiting for a bus were ndangered. But the controversy and politics iiuld not overshadow the per- iirmances of the athletes It was 111 Eric Heiden Olympics Heiden bt ' came America ' s golden boy, as he achieved what no man or M)man had ever done before-- apture five individual gold medals, one in every men ' s speed skating event. And the Heiden medals did not stop there. Eric ' s sister Beth won a bronze medal in the 3,000-meter women ' s race. America ' s dominance on the ice continued in the hockey rink. There the upstart United States team swept the gold medal, beating the favored Soviet Union team 4-3 with two goals in the final period of play. But the gold medal was not yet America ' s, since they still had to defeat Finland. In what was almost an anti-climactic game, the squad again came from behind to defeat the Fins 4-2. While Americans triumphed in some phases of the skating world, their hopes of three gold medals were dashed early in the figure skating arena. One of the United States ' top hopes, the pairs skating team of Randy Gardner and Tai Babilonia, were forced to withdraw from the competition when Gardner pulled two mus- cles. Still the Americans continued to ERIC HEIDEN, a five-time Olymplr gold medalist, skates for the finish line hope for gold, but the last two challengers, Charlie Tickner and Linda Fratianne, could only manage a bronze and a silver respectively in individual com- petition. While for the most part the United States dominated the ice, the slopes were the property of Austria, Sweden and a tiny country named Liechtenstein. Austria started out in the fast lane, taking the men ' s and women ' s downhill races, won by Leonhard Stock and Annemarie Moser-Proll. But the slalom runs belonged to Sweden ' s Ingemar Stenmark and Liechtenstein ' s Hanni Wenzel, both winning the giant slalom and the slalom races. Wenzel had earlier finished second to Moser- Proll in the downhill, while Stenmark had to come from behind to defeat her brother Andreas in the giant slalom. ooe ' Gary Hendnx 2, 48, 51, 52, 140 Cavie Hendnx 211. 215. 273 Dana Henggeler 296 Marianne Henke 2% Michael Henke 237, 273 RODHENNECAN 109 Larry Hennmg 210 BOB HE NRY 25, 29, 76. 78, 102. 105. 108, no. 111. 112 DON HENRY 22. 28. 108. 109. 110 Cina Henry 216, 252. 2% Mark Hereford 213. 225. 229. 252, 273 Lori Herman 221, 237, 2% Brad Herrin 241 Dale Herrman 153, 296 Valerie Herrold 2% Vicki Hersh 216, 236, 240 Reasa Herzberg 2% loAnn Heum 133 ED- lulie Hewitt 71, 227, 229, 2% Orval Heywood 76 Kevin Hiatt: 202 Dean Hicks 234 Diane Hicks 232, 318 Larry Hicks 234 Mallnda Higginbotham HIGHER COSTS FOR LJCATION 116. 117 Doug Hilgenberg: 253, Regina Hill 217, 273 Soma Hill 273 Paula Hillyer 237, 296 Tcss Hilt 102 DR WILLIAM HINCKLEY 137,318 Kevin Hindmarsh: 2% Scott Hines 2% Candy Hinshaw 135, 264 DR GEORGE HINSHAW 318 296 HIGHER 273 Gary Hinton: 273 Junko HIratsuka: 296 Malt Hirsch 296 Haven Hisey: 225 HISTORY HUMANITIES DIVISION 142, 143, 144. 145 Nancy- A lice Hixson: 296 Don Hobbs 206 Patricia Hoffelmeyer; 240 Mauricsa Hoffman: 128. 2% Rita Hoffman 2% William Hoffman: 296 Jack Hofmockel 237. 296 Robin Hogeland 237 Gary Hogue: 172. 206 Clayton Holden: 2% Ben Holder 131. 132, 245 lulle Holland: 296 Stephen Holle 252, 273 INDEX 335 LARRY HOLLEY: 160, 161 Stephen Holley 220 Lynda Hollingsworth: 296 Don Holm: 2% Julie Holmes: 216, 296 Velda Holthus 237, 296 Roger Holtz: 234, 296 HOMECOMING: 7, 11, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 63, 76, 111, 177, 203, 204, 205, 206, 213, 214, 252, 262, 352 HOMECOMING WITH A SMILE: 204, 205 HONORARIES ATTRACT MEMBERS: 250, 251 LYNNE HOOKER: 318 Barbie Hooper: 90, 296 Annette Hope. 215 DR lOHN HOPPER: 229 HORACE MANN FUNDING SHAKY 90 Carl Hornbuckle 253 CHANNING HORNER: 144, 250, 251, 318 Myra Horner: 205, 215 Kevin Hormck: 206, 273 HORTICULTURE CLUB: 258, 259 MARVIN HOSKEY 234,319 Lana Hosteller 296 A HOUSE DIVIDED: 230, 231 Stephanie House: 296 Valerie House: 257, 296 Randy Houston: 210 Barb Houtek: 296 left Houts: 206 1 im Howard: 296 Cheryl Howerton: 273 Matt Howland: 296 Alan Hubbard: 234, 296 Peggie Hubbell: 217 HUDSON DORM COUNCIL 226, 227 Randy Huffman 203 Chris Hughes 241, 299 IRENE HUK: 17, 218, 219, 223, 229, 230 Barbara Hull: 211, 227, 250, 273 MARY HUMMERT: 142 Ray Hummert: 86 Brian Humphrey: 234, 299 ESTLE HUMPHREY 315 Shelli Humphrey 299 Steve Humphrey- 234 David Humphries: 299 Adrian Hunt: 253, 299 Larry Hunt: 155 Mac Hunt: 253, 299 Michelle Hurd 221, 299 DR I AMES HURST 142, 319 Melissa Husted 214, 299 Lynn Hutchinson: 299 Denise Hutsell: 213, 299 ] anice Hyler 273 Tom Ibarra. 204, 299 ■I COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT " : 54, 55 I anice Ikpe: 222, 273 lOHNIE IMES 126 IMPROVING DORMITORY LIFE 224, 225 IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION 106, 107 IN ENEMY TERRITORY 82,83 INDUSTRIAL ARTS CLUB 41, 252, 253 INFLATIONCAUSESFFE INCREASE 93 Patricia Ingle: 299 )im Ingram: 59, 220, 225, 256 Susan Inman: 299 INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL 17, 218, 219, 230, 350 INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ORGAN- IZATION: 230 INTER-RESIDENCE COUNCIL: 15, 224, 225, 230 IN THE LIMELIGHT: 240, 241 INTRAMURALS 194, 195, 196, 197, 203, 208, 301, 315 Deborah Irick 217, 273 Susan Israel 299 IT MAY BE A FIRE TRAP, BUT ITS HOME 80, 81 Andrea Ivers: 237, 299 Susan lack: 215 DR HAROLD lACKSON: 78,319 I ohn J ackson 21, 275 Keith I ackson 299 Lori Jackson: 237, 299 Mark Jackson: 210, 275 DR PETER JACKSON 315 Randy J ackson 298 Ronnie Jackson: 298 Shirley I ackson: 253, 299 Tom Jackson: 169,252,259,299 Greg J acobs 273 Patricia Jacobs: 221 Steven Jacobs 275 Val jahn 221 loyce James 213, 221 Kevin lames 299 Rich James: 98 Robyn James 217, 299 299 299 256 299 256 299 206, 254, 275 Wanda J ames: Rick I ameson: Scott lansen: I anet I anson: Gary I anssen: loni I anssen: Phillip lardon: Greg laros 275 Greg lay: 256 Mike leffers 241, 288, 299 Brenda lennings: 299 Tammy lennings: 70. 236, 237, 299 Carl lensen: 204, 234 Roger lensen: 236, 237 Sherri lensen: 245, 275 Tammy lensen 254, 299 Bob lessup 275 DR.

It was as if headlines were pulled from the newspapers and placed on the screen. The most talked about movie of the year was " Kramer Vs. Kramer, " starring Dustin Hoff- man and Meryl Streep. " Kra- mer " focused on what happens when an unhappy wife walks out jon her husband and six-year-old json, only to return 18 months later [to fight for custody of the child The film was not only able to andle marital and parental love, ut a host of other social issues; nd in an era where the old Idef mitions of marriage and family had been torn apart, it was very •timely. Another contemporary issue [dealt with in the movies was the Vietnam War, and Francis Ford [Coppola literally put his life on the Ime to make " Apocalypse Now, " |a three-hour extravaganza. It sent moviegoers back to a time most Americans would like to forget but needed to face. lane Fonda gave a startling pirtormance in " The China S ndrome, " a film dealing with tl !■ dangers of nuclear power the China Syndrome " was not only timely because many Ameri- ans were questioning the feasi- jlity of nuclear power, but also lecause shortly after the film was eleased a fallout problem similar :o the one occurring in the movie actually happened at Three Mile Island. The problems which occur in the process of growing up were handled with ease in the popular movie " Breaking Away. " This movie featured the problems of four boys growing up in a college town and trying to escape the stereotyping which went hand in hand with such a life. Other fine dramatic perform- ances were give by Bette Midler in " The Rose, " a semi-biography of Janis Joplin, and Sally Field in " Norma Rae, " a movie casting Field as a factory worker fighting to hold her own in a male- dominated industry. Not only was it a year which offered a look at timely issues, but a year when Hollywood tried to scare us with such features as " Alien, " " Halloween, " " The Amityville Horror " and " Proph- ecy. " On the comedy side, Jane Fonda once again proved her abilities as an actress in " The Electric Horseman " with Robert Redford. Barbra Streisand teamed up again with Ryan O ' Neal in " The Main Event. " And Woody Allen triumphed again with " Manhattan. " Steven Spielberg, creator of such box office hits as " Jaws " and " Close Encounters of the Third Kind, " failed to impress moviegoers with his attempt at comedy, " 1941, " which brought together such top names as John Belushi, Dan Akroyd and Tim Matheson. But the biggest comedy hit of the year happened the minute Bo Derek captured the heart of DLidley Moore in " 10 " Not only did this film take a hilarious look at Moore ' s infatuation with Derek but also satirized the lifestyle of contemporary Southern Califor- nia. " 10 " also provided a funny view of male menopause and proved that, yes indeed, there is life after 40 for the men of this world. Another infatuation of sorts, combined with the creativity of Jim Henson, provided moviegoers with comedy in " The Muppet Movie. " Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the whole gang got together for a refreshing comedy which had them traveling across country to be in, what else, the movies. Many people expected Miss Piggy to be nominated for an Academy Award, but unfortu- nately she was not. And although the focus was more on timely issues, there still were touches of fantasy. For the millions of Trekkers throughout the world, it was a year to celebrate. " Star Trek-The Mo- tion Picture " hit the screen with the original television cast taken out of mothballs and William Shatner once again commanding the starship Enterprise The end of the decade saw movies which were filled with high intelligence, exceptional actmg and formal brilliance. All these factors made the movies so enjoyable that a new trend was clearly beginning to develop-a trend which made it clear that Hollywood would have to maintain a high degree of excellence in the years to come.

At dawn jet fighters capped off the night ' s activities by swinging in low over the capital city of Kabul, finalizing what had oc- curred. The country had been seized by its northern patron, Russia. THE STREETS OF Kabul, Afghanistan, show no signs of Russian presence a month after the Soviet invasion. " Associated Press More than 4,000 combat troops were deposited in Kabul. The airlift had barely ended when ground troops were sent across the Afghanistan border, soon joined by two mechanized rifle divisions, giving the Soviets a grand total of 25,000 combat troops in Afghanistan. While the Russian army grew stronger, the Afghan army grew weaker. Desertions, casualties and a lack of new recruits took a heavy toll on the original 100,000 men. Its troops were largely made up of conscripts who rebelled at the idea of killing their country- men; therefore, Russian troops had to make up the deficit. In retaliation to what President Jimmy Carter called the most serious threat to world peace during his administration, he cancelled new cultural exchanges between the United States and Russia, reduced grain sales by 17 million metric tons and introduced a proposal to boycott the 1980 Summer Olympics that were to be held in Moscow. Carter called the Afghanistan invasion a violation of international law and the United Nations Charter. . Faced with the possibility of war. Carter announced his de- cision to register women as well as men for the draft. He did say, however, that women would not be sent into combat.

Carter felt it necessary to remain in the White House and deal with the Iran crisis and the Afghanis- tan conflict While Democrats were given these three choices in Iowa, Republicans had a much broader field to choose from. Illinois Rep. John Anderson, Tennessee Sen. Howard Baker, George Bush, John Connally, Indiana Rep. Phillip Crane, Kansas Sen Robert Dole and Ronald Reagan formed the pack which Republicans hoped could win back the White House from the Democrats. Iowa was the first real popularity test for each of the candidates, and all wanted to do well even though there was no definite bearing as far as the nominating conventions were concerned. After several weeks of cam- paigning and debating, the IXJE TO THE IRANIAN and Afghanistan crises, President Jimmy Carter remained In the White House Instead of hitting the camftalgn trail caucuses met throughout the state and decided that Carter and Bush were the best choices for the job For Bush, the decision not only accelerated momentum in his campaign but made him some- thing of a household name as well. Following the Iowa caucuses, the candidates focused their attention on New Hampshire for the first of several primaries to be held before J une. New Hampshire had always been an accurate barometer in predicting the nominees and was the first time in campaign 1980 where the voters were able to actually cast a private ballot for their choices. For Kennedy, who suffered defeat in Iowa, the road was not getting any easier as Carter remained in the White House claiming that he needed to be a leader instead of a campaigner. Kennedy, however, took ad- vantage of discouraging economic news on the homefront when it was announced that inflation would be somewhere between 18 and 20 percent by the end of the year. Brown also picked up on this and both men lambasted the president for not going public to defend his economic policies. For the Republicans, the eleventh commandment, " thou shalt never speak bad about a fellow Republican, " was broken following a scheduled debate which was sponsored by a New Hampshire newspaper and was PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE Sen Edward Kennedy waves to his Iowa supporters after conceding to President Jimmy Carter in the caucus. only to feature Reagan and Bush. When the other four candidates claimed that they were being edged out of the debate, Reagan agreed to foot the bill for the debate and invited them to join in However, the rift developed when Bush claimed that the Reagan campaign was trying to set him up and then refused to participate in the debate. Eventually, Bush did show up for the debate but was not an active participant until only Reagan was left. Just what effect this had upon the primary was not clear, but a poll taken shortly before the votes were cast had Bush and Reagan neck and neck. When the results were counted, however, Reagan had a clear upset by receiving 50 percent of the total vote, while Bush was only able to manage 23 percent. Another 13 percent went to Baker, while Anderson cap- tured 10 percent. The Democrats reaffirmed con- fidence in Carter by handing him 49 percent of the vote, while Kennedy did better than expected with 38 percent. Brown won 10 percent and decided to put his campaign on hold until the Wisconsin primary in late March. Following New Hampshire, the men running for president moved on to various other states where they hoped they could either keep their strongholds or try to better their standings.

Reports indicated that the prison overthrow began when a guard, one of only 22 on duty in the huge facility, tried to force two prisoners to hand over the homemade alcohol they were drinking. Drunken and outraged, the prisoners overpowered the guard and took his keys. The inmates then opened all the electrically-controlled gates and the entire prison became a free-for-all. After ail the guards were locked safely away, all hell broke loose in the New Mexico prison. Convicts broke into the infirmary and loaded themselves with every available drug. They set fire to mattresses and destroyed most of three cellblocks and four dorm- itories. But the most horrible story coming from the riot began when the crazed prisoners descended upon Cellblock 4, which isolated the prison informers. The " snitch- es, " as they were called, were brutally tortured and killed in the Cellblock 4 massacre. National Guardsmen reported blood up to their ankles when they finally regained control of the state penitentiary. Control did not come, however, for 36 hours. By the end of the seige, 33 men were dead and the prison was almost destroyed. Prison conditions were said to be at least partially responsible for the inhumane actions of the inmates. The New Mexico facility was designed for 800, but at the time of the riot it housed 1,136 men. After farming out the remaining prisoners to various state peniten- tiaries, including the one in nearby Leavenworth, Kan., gov- ernment officials said they plan- ned to call a special session of the state legislature to consider emergency prison expenditures for the gutted New Mexico prison. Gov. Bruce King also said he would push for a new maximum- security facility that would sep- arate hard-core prisoners and reduce overcrowded conditions.

Jimmy Carter became the new president of the United States. The year brought spectacle and fanfare for the nation ' s 200th birthday, and the media hyped it to the hilt. But the glamour did not last long. Americans, although proud of their country, experienced drastic problems with pollution, overpopulation, the energy crisis, an inflationary crunch and an ever-growing drug and alcohol problem. Women voiced their dissatisfaction with the treatment of the " weaker sex " and began the quest to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. By 1979, three more states were needed to pass the amendment. Catholics mourned when Pope Paul VI died in Rome during 1978. He was replaced by Pope John Paul I , who died just 34 days later. Replacing him was Pope John Paul II, the first non-Italian pope in 455 years. The Polish pontiff, however, gained acceptance and love around the world as he toured places no pope before him had been Religion in the 70s grew in cult followings, including the Moonies and Hare Krishnas. But no cult had as much impact as the Rev. Jim Jones ' People ' s Temple in Jonestown, Guyana, where 900 of his " children " participated in a gruesome mass suicide Peace seemed at hand, how- ever, when the Middle East Peace Accord was signed by Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat, and Leonid Brezhnev and Carter signed the Strategic Arms Limit- ations Treaty. The SALT II treaty had been in the diplomatic stages for two years when it was signed in 1979. The world ' s need to find an alternate energy source became apparent with the shortage of fuel oil and the ever-increasing price of energy. However, the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania suffered a crisis when radioactive steam escaped from the plant. The disaster struck a responsive chord from Americans, and " anti-nuke " ral- lies became common. The decade was not all struggle and tragedy, as witnessed by American crazes such as streak- ing, skateboards and hot-tubs. The 70s became the disco decade, sparking new fashions and big- screen extravaganzas. Hang- gliding, roller skating and jogging were part of the nation ' s quest for health, as fitness and natural foods had a major influence on more people each year. The decade ended on a troubled note, with hostages being held in the American Embassy in Tehran, Iran, a Russian invasion of Afghanistan and the return of the draft in everyone ' s mind. But the beginning of a new decade sparked hope for the American people as a chance for a fresh start INDEX 347 Dave Cieseke KENNETH ROTHMAN, SPEAKER OF THE Missouri House of Representatives, looks at the Administration Building damage with Board of Regents member Dr, Harold Poynter, Rothman pledged to support the $13.8 million bill for emergency appropriations to the University. KDLX KXCV MEMBERS MOVE IN ALBUMS and station records into the communications building The radio stations we re in four different locations during the year. 348 CLOSING The year in headlines A .s the year like no other year drew to a close, the University and its people were still making headlines. Events from the beginning of the year were still affecting daily life at the institution, while new ones kept popping up to break the routine lifestyle. The flames no longer burned in the Administration Building, but the effects and memories lingered on. While attempt- ing to change the adverse headlines of the fire, the administration came up with a plan to restore both the historic building and lost classroom space. A $13.8 million plan called for repairing the first two floors of the Ad Building ' s west wing and the reconstruction of the roof. The plan sub- mitted to the Missouri General Assembly also included remodeling the Wells Library into classroom space as well as the construction of a new library and an auditorium. Almost $2 million would go toward replacing equipment lost in the blaze and the cost of relocating offices after the fire. This $2 million greatly affected the institution ' s " cash-flow, " causing other negative headlines. In order to get the University back on its feet after the fire, the administration had to dip into the cur- rent budget to pay the bills. In January, the University started to run short on cash and was forced to freeze spending unless it was absolutely necessary. Regardless of the money squeeze, enough funds were found to place insurance on all campus structures. Funds were not available, however, when it came time to hire a vice-president of finance to replace the ousted treasurer. Instead, the University tried to find a per- son within the institution to become assistant to President B.D. Owens. More title changes were announced, as per- sonnel experienced an unusually large turnover. DURING THE FREAK October snow storm, students walk in front of the J W Jones Student Union. Only the day before, students were basking in 90-degree weath- er. CLOSING 349 The year in headlines B ' ut not all the headlines were created by the Ad Building fire. When Sigma Phi Epsilon failed to gain accept- ance on campus, the fraternity decided to hold an initiation banquet in April anyway. The Greek system was threatened with further changes by Inter-Fraternity Council ' s proposed reduction of fraternity parties. And sorority women settled in Roberta Hall found themselves in a state of suspension, not knowing whether they would be forced to move from the old structure. All news was not bad news, however. Both basketball teams came on strong with new coaches, while the Bearcat cross country team went to nationals for the second year in a row. And the most sur- prising headline of all occurred when the football team went from an 0-11 mark to the conference crown in one short season. 350 CLOSING So the University kept trudging along, slipping into a new decade and a new era. Plans were made for the institution ' s 75th anniversary, when headlines would again be made. But the University would never be the same after this year in headlines.

Of course, it is not always possible, as more and more of the personality of the editor and staff goes into the book. That is how the theme " The Year in Headlines " came about.

And without Ken, Bob, Frank, Jeanne, Nick and Cindy sometimes it would have been impossible. I also thank my family tor understanding why I didn ' t come home that much, because I generally working on the yearbook.
