W anj J Changes varied throughout the year, ranging from an investiture of a new president to an annual fall concert in December. These altered the lifestyles of the entire university. Recommendations and nimors were frequent regarding a merger with Missouri Western and program cuts effecting academics.

President Dean Hubbard. Due to restoration, the President andi his family resided in accomodations other than the President ' s House at the start of his term as Northwest ' s ninth president. Nationally, President Ronald Reagan won re-election by a landslide vie- tory over Walter Mondale. The election introduced two new faces on the convention floor. Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro was the first female candidate and Rev. Jesse Jackson was the first black can- didate. While some watched the political celebrities, others witnessed the resigna- tion of the first black Miss America, Vanessa Williams, after " Penthouse " ran several controversial photographs. Screen stars Liz Taylor, I ary Tyler Moore and Liza Minelli all entered the I3etty Ford Drug-Alcohol Center for treatment while John DeLorean was freed on charges of selling cocaine. The accidental suicidal shooting of model John-Eric Hexum, deaths of ac- tor Richard Burton, baboon heart transplant patient Baby Fae and author runner Jim Fixx saddened Americans. But internationally, the birth of Prince Harry, Diana and Charles ' second born, brought joy worldwide. People.

Alter six years of construction, the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center was opened in December. The finishing touches were also completed in July on the Administration Building following the 1 979 fire. Renovation was started on Wells Library for future use in housing the mass communications department. More growth was completed with the Towerview cafeteria. This gave students another menu to choose from with the rise in the Ala Dine meal plan. But while these innovations helped forward the growth of Northwest, one may have prompted a step backward. A new escort policy put into effect in Noven ber led to much concern and controversy. After three alleged sexual assaults, poor lighting and many rumors, a 24-hour escort service was initiated into all residence ha lls. Sports teams also saw a change of scenery as they traveled cross country with winning records. Tor the first time the football team went almost undefeated with a 10-1 record, losing their last game of the season to the University of Northern fowa and earning an invitation to the NCAA playoffs with a fifth place na- tional ranking. Members of the cross country squad qualified for national competition in Clinton, Miss., on November 17. Many students found they didn ' t qualify for drinking when Congress recommended all states change the legal age to 21 in order to receive federal funding. Socializing took on a new meaning when, for the first time, a dry rush was put into effect for fraternities. Changes occurred campus-wide and came in all shapes and sizes. Trom new facilities to new hot spots, there was certain to be a change of scenery for everyone. More than books TTie B.D. Owens Library was in its second year ol utilization at Northwest. In addition to txx ks. the library was also equipped with computer terminals, word processors and typewriters. Another addition was the Tutorial Service Room, set aside strictly tor the tutorial service. -Photo by E. Barrera Opening 5 Space walk Mission specmlisi Bruce McQmdIess lakes a walk in sfkice.

Prince gave Americans not only his music and videos, but caused lines at the theater by starring in his movie Purple Rain. Area music fans were priviledged to witness history in the making. Begin- ning a $50 million national tour on the Jackson Victory Tour, Michael Jackson and his brothers ' first stop was Kansas City. With lots of luck, a self- addressed envelope and $30 a ticket, 135,000 people witnessed a moon walk of a different kind. And for those who preferred staying home in front of the tube, Dallas, Dynasty and The Bill Cosby Show were frequently viewed. The Olympics drew the biggest crowd of viewers. Held in Los Angeles, it was a gala affair even without Russia and 16 other Communist countries, ft was there a new star was born, gymnast Mary Lou Retton-, capturing six medals and American hearts. Americans also captured a trivia craze and were mass producing Trivial Pursuit, along with other trivia variations. But along with the good times came the bad. Internationally, there was the assasination offndia leader Ghandi and con- tinued fighting in Lebanon. Nationally, a rise in the kidnapping of children distressed all, along with the San Yiserdo McDonalds ' massacre, killing 21 people. Other tragedies in- cluded the five Amtrack derailings and the death of an Olympic band member during Olympic festivities when a car was driven off the street and onto the sidewalk. Mishaps existed locally also. The alledged sexual assaults on campus anJj an accident during the Homecoming Parade marred the year. Nearby Savannah residents mourned the death of six children in a school bus crash in May. ft was a year of change - a change of pace that was constant anc | necessary. 6 Op ening Fair play Slanley Woodward plays Trivial Pursuit in his dorm room.

A few students stayed in the ' Ville to catch rays and knowledge during the sum- ler months. Others packed their belong- igs and moved in as August 27 and the Tst day of classes rolled around. Lifestyles changed almost overnight. With the absence of Mom ' s cooking and Dad ' s car, students found themselves out on their own and beginning another phase ' of life. Activities, sponsored by various organizations, kept students busy. A spring and fall concert. Homecoming celebra- tions and various plays offered students a pixture of entertainment. Changes were daily, offering challenges of all types and encouraging a change of pace. Bear hug In the reception line alter the investilure ceremonies.

New arrival Changes on campus include the arrival of Dean Hubbard to replace B.D. Owens as University president. -Photo by E. Barrera Guaranteed Students find change necessary for survival ' hange. It ' s constant, predictable and guaranteed. One of the biggest changes oc- cured when a high school senior was suddenly thrown into a maze of new faces, surroundings and responsibilities. Upon arrival on campus, talk of silly freshmen antics started circling. Classes posed quite a dilemma for some freshmen. The trouble began before they even attended their first course. Armed with books of every size and shape, they headed in the front doors of Colden Hall only to find no 100 room numbers existed. Panic. The situation didn ' t get much bet- ter at lunch time. One freshman, going through the cafeteria line, grabbed the display plate. Another dropped their plate and was greeted with a round of applause. But those first few weeks past and soon everything was under control. As time went by, experienced students accepted the fact that um- brellas stayed in the closet when a Maryville rain and wind storm crop- ped up or suffer embarrassment as it turned inside out and sent them flying. Wardrobes always included an array of cool, warm and in-between outfits. Weather was one factor which was uncontrollable, but needed certain preparations. Racing against the clock, ad- dicted daytime drama fans found they could wait until that last set of commercials, grab a book and still make it to class before counted ab- sent. And that wasn ' t all a student had to accomplish. The responsibility always longed for was suddenly there and had to be dealt with in various ways. Mom was no longer nearby to do trashbags full of laundry. Dad wasn ' t there for a quick loan, to borrow the car or to help balance the checkbook. Suddenly, when the alarm went off, there was no one to come in and make certain it was obeyed. And at test time there was was only one person there to put the card game on hold and bring out the books. The biggest responsibility that weighed on a student ' s mind dealt with choosing a major that would directly influence their future. In the past several years, other decisions dealing with changing the was JW im- the atmosphere around campus have been made. New buildings added more facilities, such as the B.D. Owens Library opened in 1983 and the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center opened in December. In June the final step to reconstructing the Administration building after the 1979 fire was complete when aventilator placed atop the building. A patio was built outside Jones Union, while inside provements were made to Spanish Den, Deli and relocating of the University Club. A new face on campus created other changes. President Dean Hubbard. After seven years, B.D. Owens resigned his position, thus bringing a host of new decisions by his predecessor. In four years at the University, new faces came and went, each of- fering their unique contribution. Through it all, nothing remained the same. Students graduated or left. Structures were built or reconstructed. Change. It was constant, un- predictable and guaranteed. -Dana Kempker College life 11 . G Hot stuff Students beat the heat and hit the books ' one were the days of fighting students on over- crowded sidewalks. Cone were the long lines at the deli and cafeteria, it was summer in Maryville. The sessions attracted substantially fewer under- graduate and graduate students to campus, less than 2,000 each session. " Basically the people that were here (in the summer) were here to study, " said Ann Grud- zinski, summer director of Franken Hall. " During the sum- mer, we ran more of a hotel operation. We had a lot of tem- porary housing with nearly everyone going home every weekend. " Campus housing in the sum- mer was utilized by approx- imately 1 ,000 students, as well as high school participants in the various camps and incoming freshman visitors. " There were usually younger people around campus, but it was generally an older crowd of students in the summer, " Crud- zinski said. Summer was the time when teachers had the opportunity to return to school for more educa- tion, she said. " They spent the week studying on the campus and went home to their families on the weekends. " A lot of the undergraduates Off to class In the humid weather, Mary Furler and Jill Lytten walk together to their summer classes. The sunny days made wearing shorts fashio nable. -Photo by E. Barrera were also weekend commuters. They were in summer school to improve their CPA ' s, make up for lost time or get ahead, " she said. Summer not only found the students in fewer numbers, but the activities as well. " There wasn ' t nearly as much life, " said summer school stu- dent Carolyn Stroud. " There was much more time to study, but there sure wasn ' t anything else to do. " Stroud, a resident assistant, worked in Franken Hall during the summer. " When you plann- ed a program for the residents during the year, you were often lucky if anyone showed up at all, " she said. " In the summer, everyone came. They didn ' t have anything else to do. " Swimming was one available activity during the summer and the students took advantage of it. The Housing Office planned several evening swimming par- ties for the campus residents and many of them also purchased season swimming passes to the Maryville pool. " Everyone seemed to go to the pool almost every day, " said Stroud. " That was the only place to find the fraternity and sorority students. " Music major Karl Jacoby found more " alternatives " for spending a summer in the ' Ville. " There sure wasn ' t much go- ing on besides classes, " he said. " I played tennis and golf a lot and I actually studied more. Then I left town on the weekends. " Although the lack of social life may have created dull moments, it contributed to a better study environment for students. The two summer sessions were set in a much more concentrated atmosphere-each ran approx- imately five weeks in length. " It was like a Reader ' s Digest version of the regular term, " Greg Gilpin said. " The entire school situation seemed easier because I had more time to study, there were fewer distrac- tions.

Barrera Summer 13 U-Haul Students flock back to the Yille 0„ n or off campus, it was a decision made by seniors, juniors and sophomores each year. Which was better and why? Was it unfair that freshmen were required to live on campus? Or was it just part of the college game? Whatever the answers, students lived in various en- vironments. Some lived in frater- nity houses, apartments or renovated houses-converted in- to apartments or duplexes. Then there were the good old faithful dorms, correction, residence halls! What was attractive about the dorms? After all, weren ' t they mostly for freshmen? That seemed to be far from the truth. Dorms did have their ad- vantages. Students could get to know each other better through dorm life. " Dorms were good, especially for freshmen, " Lisa Blair said. " It helped them get to know people and get involved with campus activities. " Living in the dorms was a lear- ning experience as well. Living together, students learned to Dropping in Each fall the trials and tribulations of moving in plague students. Patti Under- wood moves into Hudson Hall with help from a friend.

But if the blues set in, a friend was never far away-down a floor, a hall or just next door. There was always someone around. " As an officer of a sorority, I was required to live on campus, " Margie Retter said. " But living in the dorms was a good ex- perience for me in that I met so many more people living on campus. I was more familiar with campus events. " Dorm living also gave students an opportunity to get to know people and socialize with those from different lifestyles and en- vironments. Dorm living gave students easier access to the campus. Getting to class on time was sometimes an impossibility for someone off-campus with two feet of snow or in the inevitable rain that came down in buckets 10 minutes before classes. Adverse weather conditions had a way of destroying even the most worthy intentions. Some students lived on cam- pus because it was more conve- nient than living off-campus. Gas was expensive and walking was harder and more difficult to deal with each day. Another cost factor to consider was food. Along with the dorm contract was the required meal contract. But even the good, the bad and the ugly had a spark of hope. With a meal contract, the prepare-a-meal doldrums were over. It was a no-fuss, no-clean- up paradise. The food maybe wasn ' t as good as Mom ' s, but it was usually edible. The tomato soup and cold cut days were over with the implementation of ARA food services. Other conveniences of on- campus living were furnished rooms and paid utilities. Furniture and utility bills were problems of the past with dorm life. Beds, desks and dressers were all provided in the dorm. The moving van didn ' t have to be rented out to live comfor- tably. Just a large car. Students weighed the pros and cons and decided which was bet- ter and why? On campus or off- campus living? -Ann Whitlow 14 Moving in Unloading Getting involved in the move, parents lend a hand by unloading crates from the van.

" " Kihnspiracy " blasted their sound so loud, the audience ears were in " Jeopardy. " Granted, ear-splitting music is as much a part of a concert as hand clapping and feet stomp- ing, but the audience did not seem impressed with the in- distinguishable vocals. Opening the set with " Talking to Myself, " Kihn told the crowd the song was one of his favorites. The audience reacted lukewarm- ly to the music, but Kihn played with wild abandon. After " Confrontation Music, " he told the crowd, " Every song. Three in a row Members of the band join their talents to entertain students at the spring concert. -Photo by E. Barrera one way or the other, is about sex. " With that, he launched in- to " Work, Work, Work, " which he promised, " was not about sex. " Again the crowd failed to applaud or yell approval. In " Stand Up For Your Rights, " Kihn and the members of his band jammed and ad-libbed lyrics, before seguing into " Hap- py Man, " a definite crowd pleaser. Kihn put a lot of energy into his riffs and the number moved right along. After a couple " roots rock and roll tunes, " the group jumped in- to the long-awaited " Jeopardy. " The audience finally came to life, singing along with Kihn. " Jeopardy " blended into a reprise-like " I ' m Losing You. " Kihn then took the microphone and said, " This next song is what happens after I drive off in an MG with the girl in the ' Jeopardy ' video. " The band broke into " Reunited " and then " The Breakup Song. " This was another popular Kihn tune, one of few to evoke crowd reaction. The band was called back for an encore. Kihn ' s energy never wavered. Shannon Roy enjoyed the group ' s performance. " I thought it was pretty good. He had a lot of energy and he made you want to get up and dance, " she said. Lesley Blank was less en- thusiastic. " I liked the last song, but the other songs were drawn out and played too long. It was monotonous. " However, Beth Gamblin had the opposite reaction. " I loved it. I thought it was great. Greg Kihn got involved with the audience.

What was Stroller Daze? It was a week of entertainment held during spring semester. Stroller Daze was a tradition at Northwest until 1980, when it was known as " Almost Anything Goes. " Before that, it was known as Joe Toker Days. In 1983, the tradition was revived by John Leek. This spring marked the second time the event had been held since the tradition was revived. Stroller Daze was held April 3-7. " It was a tradition to hold Stroller Daze during the first week of April and we ' d really like to stick with that, " said Mc- Clendon. A CAP ' S committee put the events together. The committee tried to schedule at least one event every night of the week. ARA sponsored a steak night. Entertainment was provided by Egg on his face Glen Langenfeld waits to participate in the chicken fight. This event has traditionally been a favorite. -Photo by E. Barrera the ventriloquist act Still and Max. IRC sponsored " Almost Anything Goes " games. " I thought it was a lot of fun, " said Randy Bonnesen, an " Almost Anything Goes " partici- pant. " But I would have liked to see more teams. There were only four teams and there was room for about 12. " Harambee sponsored a dance and CAP ' S sponsored the movies " Raiders of the Lost Ark " and " Tootsie " in the Spanish Den. Deli specials were also served during the movies. On the final night, CAP ' s spon- sored a dance with music by the British band Rave. " They played a lot of Beatle- type music, " said McClendon. How did Stroller Daze rate? " We didn ' t get quite as much publicity as we wanted, but other than that I think the ac- tivities went fairly well, " said Jim Wyatt, head of student activities and programs. " It ' s really hard, we found, to bring back an old tradition. The students don ' t know the background or anything about it. So we had to re-educate them as to what the tradition was all about. " " Several people knew about the individual events, but few really tied it all together as Stroller Daze, " said McClendon. " We used T-shirts, all-calls and posters, but I don ' t think anybody really knew it as Stroller Daze. There was interest in the individual events, but not as much for the whole thing. " " I thought it went pretty well, " said Janet Beiswinger, publicity chairman. " It (Stroller Daze) was about the same time as Greek Week so that made it hard to find time to plan. But I ' d like to see more organizations get involved with it. Any little thing they could contribute would be good. And I ' d like to get more people in- volved so they know what Stroller Daze is. " Will Stroller Daze continue? " We don ' t want to let it die. We ' ll definitely continue. We just have to work on a new con- cept toward it, " said McClen- don. " We would like to make it a University tradition again instead of a CAP ' S tradition.

Approximately 425 athletes participated in the 15th Annual Area I Special Olympics. The games were sponsored by the Kennedy Foundation and Area I Special Olympics. Almost 400 volunteers were on hand to organize events, work as huggers and coaches and keep statistics. Athletes were mentally and or physically handicapped, but that did not seem to deter from their determination. " The kids were just incredible, " volunteer Kathy Rogers said. " They gave their all. " Olympians showed their athletic skills in the 50-meter dash, relays, mile run and other events. Twenty- sent represen- track and field eight schools tatives. " Participation was the key, " said Gerald Wright, assistant pro- fessor of elementary and special education and area coordinator. " Everyone on the field was in- volved in something, " Wright said. " Smiles were everywhere. Winners of each event wore their ribbons proudly all day. " For the Special Olympians rib- bons were an additional thrill, but winning was not the most im- portant thing. " There were no losers in their eyes, " volunteer Mary Piston said. " They all considered themselves winners just to be in the Olympics. When they did win a ribbon, they would get ex- cited and hug each other. " Another volunteer, Linda Stevens, also felt rewarded. " I dressed as a clown and visited with everyone, " she said. " I patted everyone on the back whether they did good or bad, won or lost their event. The feel- ing I got couldn ' t be replaced with any other feelings in the world, " Stevens said. " It was hard to express the feeling unless you were there to experience it, " Stevens said. " I felt like I had made their day a lot better and decided they had made mine brighter too. " For Wright, his reward was having the games run so smoothly. " Things went very well, " he said. " There were minor pro- blems of course, beca use things don ' t always run exactly as they should. But if there was a reward, it was to know things were available for the people who needed them. " For some athletes, their ' special ' performances didn ' t end at Northwest. Close to 40 Special Olympians went on to compete in May at the State competition. A smile here, hug there and perhaps even a ribbon. Olym- pians seemed happy and en- thusiastic about their perfor- mances. Volunteers profited too. " There were so many rewards in working with the handicap- ped, " Stevens said. " They are one of the most loving and cheerful groups of people. " -Bonnie Corrice Winning smile Achievement creates a winning smile on every Olympian ' s face.

A positive mental attitude and a " can-do spirit " would open doors and opportunities, Noah said, and he urged the grads to pass their happiness on to others. Five baccalaureate recipients were graduated Summa Cum Laude, the honor bestowed on those whose cumulative grade point average was 3.95 or better . The Summa Cum Laude graduates were Debra Duffy, Beth Hughes, Laurie Langer, Kevin Miles and Leslie Ide. Two other graduates, Tobi Whiteside and Dave Kopp, were presented the Edw ard P.

Wait Disney ' s creations came to life in the Wonderful World of Nor- thwest and Homecoming 1984. Filled with campus humor, comedy skits and musical enter- tainment, the Variety Show started off Homecoming ac- tivities and ran four nights. Masters of Ceremonies, Dan Conway and Mark Harris, told jokes and introduced acts during the show each night. " The Variety Show started out unorganized on the first night, but it got better each night, " Marcia Matt said. " The crew working on the show organized it more as it went on. They filled the spaces that needed filling. " Another part of Homecoming was the crowning of the Homecoming Queen. Rhonda Hauptman was crowned Homecoming Queen Wednesday evening. Hauptman, a senior from Omaha, Neb., was sponsored by Phi Sigma Epsilon. " I was really surprised, excited and nervous, " Hauptman said. " It was a big honor and it was neat being crowned Homecom- ing Queen my senior year. While some students con- sidered the crowning of Homecoming Queen the highlight of the week, most students looked forward to Walk-out Day. For many. Walk-out Day was spent working on floats and house decorations. Many hours of work with pomps, chicken wire and lumber went into the Disney theme house decora- tions.

" We worked about three weeks on our house dec, " Jacobsen said. " We probably had 30 people involved. There was a contest between floors. The floor having the most people involved won a pizza. " Another highlight to Homecoming was the parade. Participants entered floats, jalopies, group and individual clowns. " The parade went pretty well. There were a few more bands this year, " Dave Teeter said. " This was the first time in three years it didn ' t rain on the parade. The absence of rain made the Homecoming parade a little bet- ter for everyone. " Clowns were also a large part of the parade. " Being a clown, I felt more in- volved in Homecoming, " Susan Miles said. " I loved being able to greet the public. It was fun. " Overall parade winners includ- ed a tie between Delta Chi and Phi Sigma Epsilon in the Greek men ' s division, Phi Mu for Greek women and Sigma Society in the independent category. An accident occurred during the parade which caused con- cern and controversy. Janice Rickman was struck by an independent jalopy entry driven by Tom Burson. Rickman, part of the Delta Zeta clown en- try, was hit when Burson put the vehicle in forward gear. Although the parade was mar- red by the accident, Homecom- ing festivities continued. Playing one of only four home games, and getting rained on in the end of the fourth quarter, the Bearcats pulled off a 30-28 vic- tory against Southeast Missouri State before a large crowd. Wide receiver, Steve Hansley ran 131 yards for nine receptions and scored two touchdowns to earn the Don Black Memorial Trophy, given to an outstanding Bearcat in the Homecoming game. " With the football team doing so well, the whole thing was more exciting. Everyone was really hyped up, " Teeter said. Victory complete, celebrating done and floats and house decs torn down, Homecoming came to its traditional close. -Maryann McWilliams Stacey Porterfield Story time Reading a bedtime story during lll« VIV mu Alpha Variety show skit, Karl Jacoby gave the Northwest version ot " Winnie the Poo.

" -Photo by S. Trunkhi 30 Plays On Broadway A serious and humorous side of life L he fall and spring produc- tions of " John Brown ' s Body " and " Barefoot in the Park " were plays that provided a challenge • to produce. " Barefoot in the Park " was presented April 6-8 by Alpha Psi Omega in Horace Mann Auditorium. " Barefoot in the Park " was student directed and produced with proceeds going to a scholarship fund for theater majors. " The rehearsals and practices weren ' t a joy, but my assistant director, Linda Jones and assis- tant to the director, Lori Kline, did a great job, " said student director Tom Leith. " The cast and crew were motivators and they motivated me. " Presenting the play in the auditorium of Horace Mann also presented some problems. The auditorium was older and smaller than the one in Charles Johnson Theater. Some outside problems also arose. " We had to rebuild the set and then tear it down because a band on tour had to play there one night, " Leith said. " I think it worked out for the best though. If I had a choice, I wouldn ' t have done it there. " There were also lighter moments in putting the play together. " We had a scene where Kim Hensley had to jump into the arms of Brett Lassiter. In one rehearsal, Kim ran and jumped and Brett caught her, but they both landed off-stage. " A sad note for Leith, after all his hard work, the death of a family member the day before the opening performance caused him to miss the show. " I wasn ' t able to watch the play, but the stage people and crew did a spectacular job and I was able to leave knowing everything was fine. " While " Barefoot in the Park " was a play with individual characters, the fall play, " John Brown ' s Body, " was a presenta- tion in which many cast members were involved and all vital to the performance. If the audience would have left the Charles Johnson Theater praising only individual per- formers of " John Brown ' s Body, " the cast would have been very disappointed. " John Brown ' s Body " was created to be an ensemble production. " They couldn ' t say ' Hey, wasn ' t he good, or wasn ' t she good, ' " cast member Roger Strieker said. " The audience had to go away saying, ' Hey weren ' t they good. ' " " John Brown ' s Body, " dealt with inner workings of the American Civil War. Presented as readers ' theater, the show involved 18 cast members, each portraying a dif- ferent aspect of lifestyle during that time period. ' " John ' s Brown ' s Body ' had no lead characters, " said Dr. Theo Ross, director. " In fact, all the performers played several roles. This was a very well-balanced production. " Strieker then explained that no specific roles were originally assigned. " We spent a week just discuss- ing the characters and the script before we were put into the various roles, " Strieker said. " Because the success of ' John Brown ' s Body ' relied so heavily on the cast as an ensemble, we each had to know a lot about each part, " he said. A 60-page study guide on the Civil War was provided to each cast member to enable them to study the time period. Jerry Browning was a narrator in the play. " It was really in- teresting, " he said. " The show wasn ' t a typical play. It made people think about war and how it affected them. It showed the human standpoint of war.

He had been there three weeks before he realized that he was no longer at his desk. " Following the address, Hubbard took the oath of office from Pat Danner, Missouri ' s 12th District Senator, and was presented the Chain-of-Office, a medallion im- printed with the seal of Nor- thwest, by the Board of Regents. " I am honored, challenged and certainly humbled to be chosen to serve this university as its ninth president, " Hubbard said in his response speech. " This occasion today presents us with a unique opportunity to ponder, reaffirm and recommit to those fundamen- tal, enduring principles upon which this institution was found- ed. " His response speech contained numerous religious references as well as humor, presenting a relax- ed, yet formal atmosphere to the celebration. Ending his speech with J. Paul Getty ' s definition of success, Hub- bard said, " Rise early, work late, strike oil. Let ' s get on with the drilling. " After a standing ovation, Hub- bard dedicated the Mary Linn Per- forming Arts Center by unveiling a plaque with a picture of Mary Linn, a member of the Board of Regents from 1975 to 1981, and a dedication inscription. Afterward, a luncheon, attend- ed by 270 people and a reception, were held for Hubbard. " The two-day series of events which officially opened and dedicated the Mary Linn Perform- ing Arts Center and which in- vested Dr. Dean Hubbard as the ninth president went off as smoothly as anyone could have hoped, " said Robert Henry, public relations officer. " The ceremonies consumed both the best tradition of academics and a look forward into what the future may hold for the university.

Reagan won 525 electoral votes, exceeding the record 523 electoral votes won by Franklin D. Roosevelt over Alf Landon in 1936. Reagan was the 17th incum- bent to win re-election, and at 73, the oldest man ever to oc- cupy the White House. One of the sponsors of the Young Democrats liked Mon- dale ' s choice of a running mate. " Ferraro made the difference for me, " Barbara Oates said.

" Mondale was honest in saying taxes had to be raised. Reagan just didn ' t say it. " A member of the Young Democrats, Bill Sieker, also was not pleased with the outcome of the presidential race. " I wasn ' t satisfied, but was prepared, " he said. " Through Young Democrats, I learned how the election process work- ed. " On the other hand, Thomas Carneal, sponsor of the Young Republicans, viewed the results differently. " Reagan gave people a feeling of security, " Carneal said. " He came across very charismatic especially on nationalism and patriotism. " In state elections. Republican John Ashcroft won the race for governor, while the lottery and pari-mutual betting proposals passed. Proposition B, dealing with government regulation of nuclear power in the state was given a thumbs down by voters. The year presented several firsts to Americans by the nomination of a female vice- presidential candidate, Jesse Jackson as the first black can- didate to make it through the primary and to the convention floor and the landslide victory of Reagan, kept the oldest presi- dent in the White House.

The bass player Pat Lupo, smiled almost continuously throughout the show. After his version of " Runaround Sue, " Cafferty took time to thank the crowd for the band ' s success, most notably with the " Eddie and the Cruisers " soundtrack. " We want to thank you for all the good things that have happened to us, " he said. With that, the band launch- ed into their first hit from the LP, " Dark Side. " Later, the lead singer asked the crowd, " Have you ever been out to the East Coast? It ' s really great! Out east, we go to the beach a lot. What about you guys? " Cafferty ' s dialogue was used as a segue into another cover of an oldie but goodie, " On the Boardwalk, " done originally by the Drifters. Cafferty told the audience the Rhode Island-based band had been together 12 years. He said it was all worthwhile when their soundtrack album went platinum.

" I think it ' d be all right once we learned the system, " said the knowledgeable sophomore. " See, that ' s where I have this here problem, " the freshman remarked. " How ' s it gonna work if they close this place down? " " They ' re not closing it down, clown, " the elder said. " They want to make it one school-just kind of combine the two. One, probably ours, would be the school for you young pups--where you could get requirements out of the way. " " So I ' d have to take all my classes here anyway, right? " " That depends, " the sophomore answered. " You ' ve got to take other classes and learn aboutbusiness and English and all that. So they ' re saying we could schedule classes to take over there just like we do now. You could take the super-sonic shut- tle bus to the other campus-they ' d probably call that South Campus-and then hop on one to come back. " " What about food? " asked the younger, sipping his Buckhorn. " When do I eat? Where do I eat? " " No problem. We ' ll have the same kind of card system we have now, only we ' ll have food from restaurants, not the stuff we got now. Both campuses would have it. " " Let ' s say I can ' t get to class, " the inquisitive freshman a sked. " If you ' re lazy or just overslept, too bad. But if you have a good excuse, you can call one of the inter-campus operators and tell her you want to see the tape of-say, underwater basket weaving 201 . You type in your excuse by a number on the disk and she sets it up. You can see your teacher and everything, but you can ' t ask any questions ' cause he can ' t see you, " the sophomore said. " Or you could just steal somebody else ' s notes. " " But they ' re not moving the Tower, are they? " the freshman asked, holding back a tear. " They can get their own, right? " " They probably don ' t want one, " the older student answered after a gulp. " They have their school initials on the side of the highway where everybody can see. " " That ' s a relief, " the now knowledgeable one said. " I don ' t think it would of fit on the highw ay anyway. Oh yeah, who runs the place after we ' re combined? " " The administration has to switch off every year. That means I everybody-janitors all the way to the president. That way we can really be considered one school with sides ruling equally, " the elder said. The younger thought a moment. " Wait a minute! " he yelled. " I don ' t want to be a Griffon. I ' ve never even heard of it! How could I cheer at a football game for a Griffon? " " That ' s something new too, " the sophomore said. " They want to call us the ' Fighting Griffcats, ' kind of a cat with wings. Pretty intimidating, huh? " " Not really, " the younger countered. " But at least people will feel sorry for us when we lose. " He thought and sipped once more. " We gonna have our football team or theirs? " " it ' s gonna be like the NFL and the USFL, " the sophomore said. " We got two teams for every sport. They ' ll play in their respective conferences. Of course, we can ' t play each other. And if we made the playoffs, coaches of both teams would get together and compare, and keep who they wanted. " " What about clubs? What if we got a meeting and some of the guys are over there? " " That ' s already taken care of, " said the man with all the answers. " People in clubs like yours are supposed to meet at a halfway point-somewhere in Savannah. I think faculty meet- ings will be at the bowling alley there. " " I guess it will all work out, " the concerned freshmen said. " But somebody will hear about it if we don ' t get first dibs on fishing rights for Golden Pond.

Trunkhi 40 Play No vacancy Full agenda of activities causes shuffle for rehearsal space A Ls the curtain came down Nov. 18 and the final act was com- pleted, the audience applauded the production " A Texas Trilogy. " This particular play was very unique. Besides being student directed, which was an accomplishment in itself, this Preston Jones production was a combination of three separate plays. The plays were done in a rep, meaning repeated in a series. Each one of the productions had its own cast, student director and budget. " It was certainly a challenge to do, " said Dr. Theo Ross, associate professor of the theatre department. " I think it was one of the most beneficial ex- periences we ' ve had in a long time. " One problem directors en- countered was finding a place to rehearse. With three plays at once, and the December production of " Storytellers, " the directors were forced to alternate rehearsals bet- ween Charles Johnson stage and two other areas on campus. " A Texas Trilogy " consisted of " The Last Meeting of the Knights of the White Magnolia, " directed by Tom Leith; " LuAnn Hampton Laverty Oberlander, " directed by Steve Booton and " The Oldest Liv- ing Graduate, " directed by Chuck Duer. Leith directed " Barefoot in the Park " last year and used this, along with his acting experience, to help direct. " Being an actor helped me know what I liked in a director, " he said. Leith ' s play took place in a small Texas town. " The play showed changes going on in town and the people living there, " he said. A group called the Knights of the White Magnolia fought to prevent change from splitting up the old gang- The second director, Booton, said a majority of his directing ex- perience came by assistant manag- ing. " I know from being an actor what I liked in a director and what I didn ' t like, " he said. Booton ' s production was based upon dreams. " It ' s nice to have dreams, everybody has dreams, " Booton said. " One had to realize they could have big dreams and big ideals, but had to do something about them. " With the final production, " The Oldest Living Graduate, " director Duer came with an interesting background. Duer had been involv- ed in theatre since childhood. Duer decided to take a shot at directing before graduation. He described his production as " a conflict between father and son. It was people coming to grips with changes in life, death and each other. " Over 30 actors were involved in the three productions. For over a month, five to six days a week, three hours a night, the cast came together and rehearsed. When all was done and applause forgotten, the director and cast agreed on one thing. If given the chance, they would have done it all over again. --Teri Ripperger Play 41 Full moon Residents of Crovers Corner gaze at the moon on a clear night.

" And of course, " break a leg, " were all common pieces of conversation in the theatre business. There was more to any perfor- mance than the sudden thrill an ac- tor felt during final curtain call. There were people working behind the scenes and many hours of prac- tice before the that last bow in the production " Our Town. " " The last week, we rehearsed so much people couldn ' t stand up, " said Greg Thomas, cast member . " Everyone was so tired. But I en- joyed it, and didn ' t mind putting in the hours. " Rehearsal began at 6 p.m. and final notes on performance would end about midnight. Actors weren ' t the only ones to put in many hours. People who worked on costumes and make-up did too. Roger Strieker, costumes crew supervisor, said the work was challenging. " We had four weeks to get 50 costumes ready, " he said. Strieker researched what people wore in the 1 900 ' s for " Our Town. " Strieker said to work in costumes, there had to be organized action. " First, I made a costume plot a list of characters, costumes and measurements. Then I pulled a costume out of wardrobe to see what would fit best, " he said. Another kind of costume the ac- tor wore was make-up. Make-up had the power to make a 21 -year- old into a 60-year-old. Paula Sand- bothe worked on the make-up crew. " Working make-up was fun. You got to do creative stuff, " she said. Sandbothe said there was an oppor- tunity to learn about different periods of time working make-up. Whether it was being in the limelight or the one running the show, working on the play brought cast and crew closer. " Sometimes we were closer than a family, " said Erin Shevling, cast member. " There was a close bond and developed trust. " Working on " Our Town " was unique for two reasons. The story required few props and no set and it was the first production in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center for the theatre department. " Our Town " was really an actor ' s show, " Robert Shepard, cast member said. " There were no han- dicaps. You couldn ' t use the set or props to fall back on. " " It was up to the actors to put an image in the audience ' s mind as to what the town looked like, " Cast member Steve Booton said. Cast member Linda Jones said performing the play was exciting. " It left the audience with a sense of reality and a message. " Cast and crew found the facilities of Mary Linn Performing Arts Center more convenient in presen- ting " Our Town. " The new performing arts center had more room, not just on stage, but also with three separate dress- ing rooms, bigger wardrobe and costume rooms and shop for building sets. The drama students also had the Green Room. " The Green Room was our home away from home, " Shevling said. " It was more relaxed and easier to concentrate on theatre without hearing music all day long, " Booton said. " The acoustics were fantastic, " Shevling said. " A whisper could be heard anywhere. " Along with the expansion of facilities in the new building, pro- duction of " Our Town " reflected a closeness of cast and crew members. Author Thornton Wilder once said, " ...the art of theatre was perhaps the most immediate way an individual could share with other human beings just what it meant to be a human being.

It was not a wedding anniversary or the first year on her new job. Instead, Jenny celebrated her first complete year of sobriety. Throughout most of her high school years, Jenny drank alcohol to feel accepted as part of a group. She did not drink continuously. But one or two weekends a month, Jenny drank ;ill she was drunk. It was not until Jenny was 1 6 that the realization of a possible drinking problem struck. " I was arrested for drunken driving and on probation for six months, " Jenny said. " I went to a counselor for evaluation and was labeled as a potential alcoholic. " During the probation period, Jenny stopped drinking, but in 3ne year she was drinking again. " I had to get drunk to have un, but once I started I couldn ' t stop, " she said. Tiring of her dependency on alcohol, Jenny decided it was :ime to change her life at 18. Feeling understanding and varmth, Jenny took the initial step in conquering her battle ■I with alcoholism-she attended her first Alcoholics Anonymous ;AA) meeting. AA defined alcoholism as a disease. To fight her disease, Jen- ny attended regular AA meetings at least twice a week. She started on their " 12 Steps to Recovery " program. . " With AA I could really feel better about myself, but I still had - :o take it one day at a time, " Jenny said. " At first, I didn ' t want to face the fact: I couldn ' t ever take a drink. " Coping with the desire to drink was a battle AA helped Jenny win. " AA also stood for ' Attitude Adjustment ' , " she said. " Peo- ple with an alcohol problem needed to change their attitude toward alcohol and not want to drink in order to reach soberness, " she said. " My future is looking pretty good right now, there ' s nothing I can ' t handle. " Jenny thinks people have misconceptions about AA and what it could do for a person. Most people thought of old men with grizzly beards, bums off the streets, needing to attend AA meetings. On the contrary, Jenny said different types of people were at the meetings; teenagers, businessmen and women. " Going to an AA meeting was admitting there was something greater th ' an us and relying on a higher power, " Jenny said. " I had a new outlook on life, " she said. " I thank God I ' m sober now. I meet people that are 40 or 50 just sobering up. I have my whole life ahead of me. " At AA meetings, Jenny was termed as " high-bottom alcoholic, " which meant her problem was not extreme-yet. Jenny did not yet drink on regular week nights or in the morn- ings. But when she did drink, it was to get drunk. Often blackouts, loss of memory, occurred. Now that she does not drink, Jenny finds it hard to unders- tand what was so fascinating about it. " I went to a few parties at college, but I got tired really fast watching people get drunk and having beer spilled on me. " Jenny stayed home and studied instead of attending parties. " I felt lonely and sorry for myself a lot, " she said. " By not going to parties it limited meeting people. " With a fresh opinion about herself, Jenny said it took imagina- tion to have a good time and discovered simple things could be enjoyable. Jenny had a problem with alcohol. Jenny was just one of many, but possibly someone would identify with her and take her advice. " I wish more college students with drinking pro- blems would go to an open AA meeting. The first step was the hardest part. No one had the power to do that for you-except yourself. " Editor ' s note: jenny is a real person, but her name was chang- ed to protect her identity. -Lisa Helzer Alcoholism 45 Endurance Handicapped for one day, experiment proves fulfilling L ' eather seat, wire wheels and chrome everywhere you look. What hell-on-wheels wouldn ' t have loved to get a piece of this action. The smooth lines of its form allowed for its simple, yet practical usage. I jumped in and began to roll, feeling it respond to my demands. As I climbed the first small incline, I could see this was going to be a ride I would not easily forget. I wheeled around, testing my balance and feeling the sidewalk ' s every bump and groove. Rolling along, everything was going as planned until I saw the sight before me and my first challenge was at hand. Appearing endless, I stopped -- a forbidden land, not to be trespass- ed. I was forced to retreat and search elsewhere for my route. For the perils of this day would be hindered forever by -- stair steps. I was in a wheelchair, going about my business as usual. Sometimes I had to go forth and blaze a new trail. Other times, I simply rolled on as if nothing were made different by my immobiliza- tion. Having previously scouted the campus, Scott Steelman started his experiment by leaving his dorm room in Phillips Hall. Steelman con- sidered himself fortunate to reside in the high-rise complex, which was more equipped with facilities for the handicapped. Instead of having breakfast at Taylor Commons, where he nor- mally ate, Steelman had to steer himself across campus to the Stu- dent Union. " I had to go in on the east side, " Steelman said. " Otherwise, I would have had to go through the kitchen and up the garbage elevator. " With breakfast finished, Steelman started toward his classes in Colden Hall. He had to allow extra time to get to class. He was not used to pushing himself and the hills on campus slowed his progress. Overall, Steelman thought the campus had well-equipped facilities to accommodate the handicapped. However, he did find disadvan- tages. One major problem was conjes- tion when trying to maneuver a wheelchair around in Colden Hall. " I would have needed to get to classes very early or arrive late, " he said. " There were just too many people standing around in the halls. " As far as accessibility was con- cerned, Steelman cited the newly modified Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building as the most accomodating with its ramp, and the Communica- tions Barn and Industrial Arts Building as the least. Steelman encountered an in- teresting incident as he entered Garrett-Strong from the back. He met a handicapped instructor in a wheelchair on his way home. Later they talked and Steelman was able to relate even better from his perspective. " It made me feel good to know I could get up out of the wheelchair at the end of the day, " he said. One of the most difficult ex- periences during the day was the limitations placed on him by the confines of the chair. Steelman said he tried to take the most direct routes to class and not avoid peo- ple. He sensed an awkwardness placed on those near him. " People were very curious and understanding as a whole, " Steel- man said. " It was a big surprise and shock to anyone who knew me, to find me in a wheelchair. They didn ' t know what to say or think. " Throughout the day, many peo- ple offered to push or help him through a difficult task, but Steelman still felt lonely, especially between classes. Along with his loneliness, he often thought about what it would be like to continually be placed in the wheelchair. He admitted it would be discoura ging. " I think it would be hard to be confined to any kind of apparatus. I don ' t know how people get used to it, " he said. Towards the end of the day, with his arms and shoulders sore, Steelman felt a new sense of ac- complishment and a longing for his love of jogging. " I ' m more aware of a handicap ' s needs, but also of the limitations placed on them by others, " Steelman said. " Handicapped peo- ple have their pride too and want to do things for themselves. " In retrospect, Steelman felt he better understood and realized disabled people had no limitations and would perhaps view them with more respect than inhibition after his day " in their shoes. " -Lisa Helzer Scott Steelman Editor ' s note: Scott Steelman confined himself to a wheelchair for one day in order to gain first-hand experience on accessibility for the handicapped. Steelman learned it took more than physical strength to endure the obstacles encountered. 46 Handicapped Krusc ' control As Tom Kruse steered his way out the back of Garrett-Strong, he was surprised when he met Scott Steelman going in. On that day in November, both were confined to wheelchairs -- the only difference, Kruse was permanently restricted. " It really blew my mind when I saw Scott, " Kruse said. " I didn ' t know there was anyone else on cam- pus in a wheelchair. Scott was trying to find a way over the curb so I showed him how. " Later, Steelman explained he was in his wheelchair for a day as an experiment. " I really appreciated Scott going through that experience, " Kruse said. " Until you have done something like that, you don ' t realize what it is like being in a wheelchair. " As a graduate assist ant in science education, Kruse spent most of his time at Garrett-Strong which, accor- ding to Kruse, was well-adapted for someone in a wheelchair. Minor improvements could have been made such as lower shelves and wider bathroom doors. Other campus improvement suggestions were for elevators in the Student Union and Horace Mann. Kruse told of one instance, when he was teaching at Horace Mann and had to be carried up to the classroom. " I had to put my trust in another person, which was hard because I have been dropped a few times, " he said. Kruse said it was no harder for him than anyone else to maneuver his way across campus. He was us- ed to all the little obstacles, but it was probably more aggravating to Steelman, who was not prepared for them. Kruse explained he was in a car accident in 1979 which confined him to the wheelchair. " I fell asleep at the wheel and went off the road, " he said. He then had to go through rehabilitation programs, and found it hard to stay in shape since he could no longer participate in his favorite sporting activities. " I just had to accept it after awhile, " Kruse said. Kruse did not think he had limitations. " Until a per- son would get to know me, they felt they had to do things for me which I could do, " he said. " I was afraid of people over-helping. " " It takes a really strong person to overcome the frustrations, " Kruse said. " It requires a different effort to do things. Not more of an effort - just different, to meet people or do some things. " -Lisa Helzer Handicapped 47 48 Campus scare Scare £ Incidents call for concern and action by various individuals umors of alleged attacks, accused sexual assaults, and males spying on girls in the shower were numerous during fall semester. They provoked controversy and inspired new regula- Itions. Public Relations Officer Bob Henry felt there were no more sexual assaults on this campus than there were on any other. " With any incident like that, rumors spring up and were usually worse than the actual facts, " Henry said. " It was human nature |for people to embellish facts and make the situation out worse han it really was. " However, the issue of sexual assaults was serious. According [to Henry, the alleged assaults deserved strong attention. " Of [course the University administration was concerned, but in a quiet fashion, " Henry said. " Thus it appeared to students no action was rendered, and their response was critical from the administration ' s perspective. Penny Brown, news editor for the Northwest Missourian, believed her staff did a good job of reporting the story on sexual [assaults right away. " We interviewed quite a few people trying to get both sides of the story, " Brown said. The staff was unable to get the administration ' s viewpoint. " They wouldn ' t talk, " Brown said. Henry thought Missourian timing was bad for a special edi- tion on sexual assault -- the day before Homecoming. " Our of- fice was always concerned with public opinion, " Henry said. But Henry understood the newspaper staff ' s reasoning. " They had good motives. Something needed to be said about the issue, " Henry said. Henry realized he should have handled the situation dif- ferently from his department because of the rumors. " We should have sent out a release to campus media to make public the actions being made to solve the incidents, " Henry said. Henry decided not to release a statement about the oc- curences because it would have interfered with the privacy and potential litigation of those involved. " We didn ' t want to jeopardize an on-going case, " Henry said. Resident assistants were greatly concerned with the continu- ing incidents. " It created a new wave of awareness, " said Nan- cy Kriz, Perrin Head RA. " For a long time, safety was taken for granted. Because of the rumors, girls were more conscious in looking out for one another, " Kriz said. " The rumor that RAs couldn ' t talk to people was exag- gerated. We were individuals too, " Kriz said. ' Once one happening was reported, it skyrocketed, " Hud- son RA Marcia Matt said. " The administration stopped telling us things because they got blown out of proportion, " Matt said. Perrin RA Jamie Gee was closely related to a sexual assault case in Perrin Hall. " The problem in that case; it was her word against his, " Gee said. " The girl asked me to be a spokesperson for her and as her RA I felt 1 had an obligation. " Gee said. Gee ran into problems with the administration. " I was told if I didn ' t drop the case, I could lose my job as an RA, " Gee said. " They told me I had an obligation to support the University. " The girl was encouraged to file charges by Campus Safety, but Dr. Phil Hayes (dean of students), encouraged us to drop it, " Gee said. The case was eventually dropped. Despite the isolated incident, some administrators thought the year ran smoothly. " I felt the school year started in good fashion, " said Dr. John Mees, vice president of student development. " There were minimal incidents until the three alleged sexual assaults. In each case, the University worked with the students to resolve problems, " Mees said. " I think the rumors may not have been realistic, but they were still a concern and we responded to them, " he said. A special task force was formed to meet problems arising from continuing concern around campus. " I felt the committee worked, " Mees said. The administration disapproved of articles published in the Missourian. " There were some flaws in the earlier stories, " Mees said. " We then met with the Missourian editorial board and briefed them. Later published stories were done very well, " Mees said. The University then began taking steps to prevent future in- cidents. They took precaution by increasing security in some dorms. " We hired a night watchman to walk Roberta, Perrin and Hudson, " said Roberta RA Andrea McGrath. His job was to patrol main floors and unprop doors and was in constant touch with Campus Safety. " I was more cautious and held more floor meetings, " McGrath said. " The escort policy was strongly enforced, " Kriz said. " Through student and administrative actions, these policies were enforced. " " The University took positive action by implementing the escort policy, but 1 thought further action was needed, " Gee said. " RAs should have been better trained to handle such crisis situations, " Gee said. " Shelly Crowley Michelle Mead Campus scare 49 m: 50 Academics ' 1 llV.iV,! I V- ' w Individuals had different talents, backgrounds and goals; but each braved term papers and Finals Week with dif- ferent degrees of enthusiasm for one pur- pose - to learn. Students ' various fields were as different as their personalities. While many had definite areas of study, others continued to search for a major that best suited their needs. The agriculture and education depart- ments seemed to draw the bigge st numbers, while the School of General Studies offered others a new option. And while some students found it easier to concentrate on studies in the library, others found options that suited their own style of working. Working, did not necessarily mean in a classroom and some students enjoyed a new atmosphere to the traditional four walls. New president, Dr. Dean Hubbard, made his presence known with a cur- riculum proposal which, if accepted, would bring about a definite change of pace.

Trunkhill 52 President Tersonal touch Huhhards fill position with heart and soul The setting told it all. Tales of the years in Korea shown by the carved wooden cabinet and various foreign remnants, the respected role of religion represented by the music played on the piano and the importance of his family portrayed by the framed picture on his desk. It was a stylish setting of cream and brass, but comfortable with a welcome of the crackling fire, green ferns, miniature rocking chair and purr from Ebony the cat. Not necessarily the scene one might imagine in a president ' s home sweet home, but one that blended with the lifestyle of new president Dean Hubbard and his family. Born in Oregon, Hubbard grew up in Washington, attended college in Michigan and there later met his wife, Aleta. He obtained the role of pastor in Wisconsin, ministered in Korea for five years and then returned to the States and earned his doctorate from Stanford in Administration and Policy Anaylsis. It was then he returned to the Midwest as president of Union College in Lincoln, Neb. and finally settled in Maryville as the ninth president of Northwest. Hubbard described himself as " a goal-oriented in- dividual who enjoyed developing new things and watching their growth. " " Dean has lots of energy, " Mrs. Hubbard said. " When he decided something needed to be done, he had the ability to get people enthusiastic and they wanted to be on his team. " As head of his household and father of three children; Melody, Paul and Joy, Hubbard believed his family was second in his life only to Cod. " We do a lot of things together, " Hubbard said. " We have always traveled and didn ' t even buy our first television until 1980. We liked to read instead. We read everything from Bible stories to " Huck Finn. " Reading and music are still important and relaxing activities to the Hubbard family. Although he didn ' t find much time, Hubbard said he still enjoyed play- ing an occassional tune on his trumpet. Mrs. Hub- bard played the piano and her husband light- heartedly chimed in with perhaps his version of " Chopsticks. " Humor seemed to have a natural place in their household. And although being the wife of a presi- dent was no small task, Hubbard teasingly under- rated her responsibilities. " Aleta wouldn ' t get up till 11 a.m., laid around the house watc hing her soaps and then got up and dressed just before I came home for dinner. " " Dean was definitely head of the household, " Mrs. Hubbard said. " But he did manage to fix his own breakfast and don ' t let him fool you, he ' s just dying to reveal his famous oatmeal recipe. " Early morning hours seemed to be Hubbard ' s most enjoyable and relaxing time spent exercising. " For three years in college, I would get up at 3:30 a.m. and have five hours of studying complete before anyone else was even awake, " Hubbard said. But Mrs. Hubbard said she was just the opposite and relaxed during her few free evening hours by reading and enjoying music. When not attending to family and household details, Mrs. Hubbard used her time to promote the university. " 1 went with Dean as often as I could, " she said. " It was a good way to meet people. I did things so Dean didn ' t have to worry about them. I ran er- rands, helped with consulting and handled personal notes to the staff. " Mrs. Hubbard was also deeply involved with the refurbishing of to the Gaunt House. " I believed in this university and if I could help, I did, " she said. One way the Hubbards liked to promote their pro- duct and get to know its consumer was through " soup suppers " in their home. By inviting students and faculty for dinner, it gave them a chance for good relations and an open line of communication. " Young people thought they were immortal and that was a great way to look at things, " Mrs. Hub- bard said. " We enjoyed college-aged kids. They got crazy sometimes, but that was what made them fun. Some of the kids at Union College couldn ' t resist and called me ' Old Mother Hubbard. ' " The Hubbards were visible at various functions on campus, from basketball games to dorm dinners prepared by students. " People have been so warm, open and accepting, " Hubbard said. " It ' s been really marvelous. The people seemed to genuinely enjoy having the college students here. " There have been no disappointments in our deci- sion, " Hubbard said. " I was impressed with the friendliness and optimism at my interviews and I am still impressed. Every day I encounter new people who go that extra mile for this university. " But no institution could be run without a leader -one that was also willing to go that extra mile. " My work consumed much of my time, but I en- joyed it and involved myself heavily with this institu- tion, " Hubbard said. -Dana Kempker President 53 Hi George! Back again? Maybe 67th time is a charm. Competency Test Area Tonight 7:30 54 Poll cy n uture Lndeavors Curriculum " Since 1 980 at least 30 studies have been com- pleted which examined the problems of elemen- tary and secondary education, " said Presi- dent Dean Hubbard in a speech to faculty and staff. He said recommenda- tions were made in many studies which, if implemented, would be far-reaching in the pur- suit of excellence in secondary education. These reports stressed the need for the next generation of students to have a broader back- ground in general studies. Problems were not on- ly experienced at the high school level, but reports done on quality of higher education sug- gested a decline the past 1 5 years. Hubbard said reports claimed baccalaureate degrees lacked focus and definition because colleges lost a sense of mission and a clear con- ception of what grad- uates should know. He said a decline in specific requirements has surfaced, and students rushed through a " garage sale " of unrelated courses for a bargain education. The result: no liberal educa- tion. Another criticism the reports showed Hub- bard was the bachelor of arts degrees lacked in- tegrity. Accumulating 120 hours of credit didn ' t demonstrate understanding of courses and skills, Hub- bard said. He cited evidence that SAT scores for high school seniors have declined for 18 years, and scores for Graduate Record Exam had also dropped. The Council on Learn- ing sponsored an Educa- tion and World View Project, which ad- ministered a national test to about 3,000 col- lege freshmen and seniors. The average score was 50 percent for seniors, an average of only eight points higher than freshmen scores. In the midst of all this disturbing news, Hub- bard said an ongoing battle between voca- tional studies and humanities was being waged in college cur- ricula. Hubbard said under- graduate studies had become too vocational, and the system of re- quirements reduced general education to " nothing more than in- troductory courses for majors. " He said humanities were not be- ing undermined. Voca- tional programs satisfied a market demand and students followed the rush to job-related courses all too quickly. Hubbard believed the solution to this educa- tional dilemma, Hub- bard believed was a pro- gram which would put the " general " back into general studies. One designed to " define knowledge, skills and at- titudes and should be shared by all graduates so they could function effectively in the world of tomorrow. " If passed by the faculty curriculum committee, the proposal would call for 124 credit hours in- stead of 120 for gradua- tion, but would not be implemented until Fall 1986. The first part of Hub- bard ' s plan was to establish a core of minimum shared know- ledge which students must possess and build programs around. These CORE requirements would total 30 hours, currently the program requires 45, and stu- dents could enroll in only two CORE classes semester. Thus, the CORE would be spread over four years. After courses were completed, students must pass a comprehen- sive exam, focused on math, computing and writing. Hubbard ' s plan sug- gested 30 to 36 hours be taken in a student ' s ma- jor area of study. A model of this section was suggested: eight to 12 hours of common knowledge, 16 to 20 hours of courses spe- cifically in that dis- cipline and four to eight hours of electives in the major. The third section, con- textual requirements, stated 30 hours must be taken outside the major area. The number of credits for contextual and major requirements together could not ex- ceed 60 hours. Finally, 34 hours of liberating studies round- ed out the proposed cur- riculum change. Four hours may be enrich- ment courses, nine hours would be spec- ified by the college overseeing the major department and the re- mainder must be taken outside the major or minor. Hubbard said his response to the reports on education, his cur- riculum proposal, ad- dressed the need for distinct educational goals. " We had a clear mis- sion, " he said. The final program would be the result of grappling with issues that challenged the credibility of higher education. In stating perhaps the goal of his mission, Hub- bard said, " ! don ' t want Northwest to become an elitist school only accep- ting five percent of the students. I want to pro- duce the elite. " -Barry Dachroeden Policy 55 __Lxecutive _ L hannels Operations Comm. One wanted to be a secondary mathema- tics teacher. Another us- ed to sing in a barber- shop quartet. This wasn ' t a new who ' s who trivia game. It was a glimpse of a few people whose decisions helped run the University. " I started out to be the best secondary math- ematics teacher that I could be, " said Dr. John P. Mees, vice president for student develop- ment. Also reminiscing, Dr. George English, vice president f academics said, " I coul; sing every part from bass to tenor. " Like everyone else, vice presidents had dreams and goals when they first st arted. Most of them said they didn ' t plan going into ad- ministration, it just hap- pened. " Somewhere along the line, my goals changed, " Mees said. He was involved with teacher programming which led him to an ad- ministrative role at Ill- inois State University. At Northwest, Mees super- vised the support ser- vices, student affairs auxiliaries, athletics and intramurals. He was also the Equal Employment Opportunity officer and president ' s represen- tative. Mees liked making ser- vices and programs more meaningful. However, administrative duties didn ' t stop the urge to return to teaching. " I missed the class- room, " Mees said. " That was why in 1981, I began to teach a class, " Mees said. Mees taught a mathematics course for secondary teachers and has taught a class every semester since. English was another vice president who en- joyed working with stu- dents. " 1 liked change and dealt with an edu- cational institution with problems that were meaningful to students involved in develop mental processes, " English said. " I wanted to help make an impact which would make the institution better. " To help with ad- ministrative tasks, En- glish developed philo- sophies. " The fewer rules 1 had to use, the better off I was. I tried to approach the whole aspect of ad- ministration forthright, taking stands when necessary and still taking stands, even if they might fail, " English said. English admitted that he was not a great memo writer and would rather talk face-to-face. He enjoyed walking around campus and stopping to talk with faculty, staff and stud- dents. " I didn ' t get those lux- uries often, " he said. Dr. Robert Bush, vice president of environ- mental affairs and de- velopment, said people were a big part of his job. " I had to remem- ber I was always working with people. Whether discussing a building or a budget, there were people involved, " Bush said. " I enjoyed bringing resources together to help people accomplish goals, " he said. " I believed people were good and had good in- tentions. " Being an administrator took away from his fami- ly life. Bush said he en- joyed quality in time together instead of quantity. " What we had together, we made high quality. We ' ve always been able to enjoy one another, " Bush said. Warren Gose, vice president for finance, found time to balance work and have quality time with his family. " I thought I did a good job of balancing. " Gose said job hap- piness was important. " A person had to like what he did. If he didn ' t he would go crazy. " Bob Henry, news and information officer liked his job, too. Being in charge of news and information was a job with emotional rewards. " Public rela- tions was an exciting business and kept me going, " Henry said. " I liked the association I had with faculty and students, " he said. Although admini- strative duties took most of their time, Mees, English, Bush, Gose and Henry allowed time for family and personal life.

Although deans from the different col- leges and schools shared the same basic respon- sibilities, each saw various changes and growths in their area. The College of Ag- riculture and Applied Sciences grew in research and service. Dean Gerald Brown said the school wrote more grants. " We plac- ed new emphasis on philosophy, research and service. We tried to support ourselves, " Brown said. " With research, we kept our teachers up dated. " Research was one reason Northwest had one of the top ag- riculture programs in the state. Meanwhile, the Sch- ool of Business and Government was striv- ing to become more ef- fective. Dean Ron DeYoung said the school was trying to achieve accreditation from the American Assembly of Collegiate School of Business. He also wanted to develop his area into a professional school. " We had a large enough base of students and faculty. We needed to consider quality. " While the School of Business wanted to structure a class se- quence, the School of Communications estab- lished an identity. " We ' ve made signifi- cant strides to establish identity as a school, " said Dean LaDonna Geddes. " The depart- ments defined them- selves and established an environment for the students. " Geddes said the awards won by the students involved newspaper and year- book staffs were a measurable accomplish- ment. Another ac- complishment was in- volving non-speech ma- jors in the forensic pro- gram. The biggest change for the College of Fine Arts and Humanities was not a new program, but the opening of the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. " This brought us back to having two major per- forming centers, " Dean Robert Sunkel said. He said the center was a better facility with wide wing space, depth, lighting and acoustics. " Any production we could afford, we put on that stage, " Sunkel said. After completing his first full year as dean, Roy Leeper added an hour to General Studies curriculum. The course, introduced and approv- ed by Faculty Senate, was freshmen seminar. " In the seminar, we attempted to integrate and justify general education, " Leeper said. " The one hour credit would focus on survival skills, studying and library usage. The course would be taught by freshmen advisers. " The Graduate School changed leadership when Leon Miller retired. Dr. Peter Jackson, associate dean of faculties, took over. " It was like wearing another hat, " he said. " There were different kinds of problems ad- justing to all the policies. " Some policies the new dean adjusted to includ- ed dual enrollment in undergraduate and graduate classes, enroll- ment of international students and individuals petitioning for credit. The College of Educa- tion experienced some changes in programs. Dr. Dean Savage, dean, said there was a revision in guidance and coun- seling. The elementary edu- cation department add- ed new courses in special education, as well as special work- shops developed in library science. Similarly, the College of Science, Math and Computer Science had curriculum changes. Changes in society en- forced the need for knowledge of com- puters. The expanding area of computers made the college revise a ma- jor and add courses. One course was designed for non- computer majors and was offered as an in- troduction to basic pro- gramming. Hubbard ' s new cur- riculum proposal af- fected the college. " We had some dictated ma- jors like the pre- professional programs that were largely set up by more professional schools, " Dean David Smith said. Many of our Wf majors were over the re- quired hours stated by Hubbard and we had to bring them down within the limits. " Projections, rejec- tions, setting goals and providing leadership for their school or college, the deans made it hap- pen for their programs and faculty. -Teresa Schueike •£: 58 Deans X hanges in society enforce tiie need for l now ledge of computers.

Following retirement, he took a 10-month sabbatical leave ending June 1. During his sabbatical. Miller served as an adviser to both the graduate faculty and to the University concerning accreditation matters. Previous to his years at the University, Miller was a major in the army. He received various honors and medals for his service and bravery which included the Purple Heart and Presidential Citation. In 1960, Miller was appointed dean of instruction and helped in the implementation of a masters degree program. With enrollment increasing. Miller became the full-time dean of the graduate school in 1969. Throughout his lifetime. Miller has been honored by various organizations. His most recent award was presented Feb. 23 by Southwest Missouri State University-Springfield. The Letterman ' s Association admitted Miller to their Hall of Fame. " A lot of people didn ' t know it, but I was a real jock, " Miller said. " I won the doubles competition (in tennis) and was runner up in the singles division for our conference. " " It felt good knowing that my efforts were rec ongnized, " Miller said. While in the Army, Miller played tournament ten- nis on a side court at Wimbledon in 1 945, advancing to the semi-finals. Shortly after, his unit was called state-side. Miller never pursued competition tennis. Throughout his career. Miller witnessed the University ' s growth and helped increase oppor- tunities to students. His position was taken over by Dr. Peter Jackson. Miller said he planned to be selective in activities now and enjoy his family. -Ann Whitlow 1 1 felt good knowing that my efforts were recognized.

Miller helped establish the Graduate Center on the Missouri Western cam- pus. The center was creat- ed to facilitate St. Joseph and area residents in order to obtain master degrees. Miller directed the program. Locating the Graduate Center in St. Joseph, made master degrees more obtainable to Kansas City and Nor- thland area residents. Rumors of taxpayer disapproval over the cooperative venture as well as the proximity closeness of Northwest and Missouri Western were scrutinized. " The rumor was a self-created controversy, " Jackson said. Missouri Western of- fered a two-year asso- ciate degree as well as undergraduate deg- rees. The two-year degrees were not offered Computerized In the B.D. Owens Library, Janet McLaughlin locates material for a student.

One and two-year certifica- tions were offered in some areas, but where the extent of two-year programs. Both colleges were needed to facilitate educational degrees to those in the region. As for the future of the graduate program. Mil- ler hoped financial pro- blems and decreases in student enrollment would not result in reduction of govern- ment aid to the universi- ty- With less emphasis on higher education, Jack- son said there would probably be an increase in different programs which were not tradi- tional masters work. He said the gradtsate degrees in the program would not be changed. Jackson said the graduate programs would need to be more attuned to the newest thrusts and applied within the graduate pro- gram. This would bring more flexibility into the master degree. " We couldn ' t create new master degrees, but we can implement varia- tions within the pro- gram, " Jackson said. " This would enable students and profes- sionals to update in- telligence and skills. " The master degrees most popular were the business and educa- tional degrees. A grad- uate student must have maintained a 3.0 grade point to continue graduate work. Jackson said the number of graduate students was relatively the same. Expansion of the program was not for- seen because there were not enough faculty members to compensate a larger program. He believed under- graduate programs would be cheated if the program were expand- ed. " We couldn ' t cheat the undergraduates, " Jackson said. " We had to go where the horse- power and demands were, and that was the undergraduate pro- gram " -Ann Whitlow Graduate School 61 I very much liked the idea of the new core classes being inter-disciplinary.

Barrera 62 General Studies fresh _ Ideas General Studies In the past, general education classes were usually taken for granted by students. However, with the formation of the School of General Studies and the proposal of a new general educa- tion curriculum, it could no longer be overlook- ed. President Dean Hub- bard has proposed a cur- riculum model for gen- eral studies courses. The position of Dean of General Studies was created and Dr. Roy Leeper instated. " We recognized the need to give the pro- gram more direction. The proposed general ' education package would raise questions like ' is it the best? ' and ' what is needed? ' We needed someone to direct the change, " Leeper said. President Hubbard ' s general education model proposed 30 hours of " core re- quirements " in general education, as opposed to 45 hours presently re- quired. These core classes, according to Hubbard ' s plan, " Repre- sented the minimum shared knowledge, skills and attitudes students must possess upon graduation. " Leeper said this meant the core classes would be the basics in the general education department. For example, Leeper explained, instead of choosing from a variety of science classes, students would be re- quired to take a class which would deal more with methodology of science as a whole. The same would go for other areas. " I liked the idea of the new core classes being i nterd isci pi i nary, " Leeper said. In addition to the core requirements, another nine hours of general education classes chosen by the major departments would be required. Student knowledge of their general education core classes would then be tested by a comprehen- sive exam. " This wasn ' t all writ- ten in stone, " Leeper said. " It was just an idea by Hubbard that was tossed around and scrutinized. " Jennifer Hewitt, a stu- dent member of the cur- riculum committee, lik- ed the idea. " It wouldgive the school better accreditation. " Among all the propos- ed changes, one change did occur in the general education department. A new one-hour general education class, fresh- man seminar, would be added. " Its purpose was to in- tegrate and make mean- ingful the current general education package, " Leeper said. Also, a different advising structure was set up, with freshman advisers being present within the class. " It explained why general education classes were needed, " Leeper said. " They were needed because they provided information to help students live better lives. " Despite major changes in the department, Leeper was optimistic. " I liked what Hubbard said was going to happen. It was exciting and new and showed great poten- tial. " -Lori Bentz Advising The School of General Studies formed, and a new general education curriculum was proposed during the year.

Trunkhill General Studies 63 Mands- B. xperience Agriculture Getting hands-on training and experience was what the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences was about. The departments of agri- culture, home econom- ics, industrial arts and military sciences made up the college. With over 600 stu- dents in the various departments, the Col- lege of Agriculture and Applied Sciences was the largest on campus. " Job potential for careers in applied sciences were growing, " said Dr. Gerald Brown, dean of the college. " It was predicted there would be a need for people (in applied areas) like restaurant management, and a great growth in food and nutrition, " Brown said. " The departments changed to meet that growth, like the area of industrial technology- electronics, robots and computers; that was where we were strong. " Dr. Frances Shipley, chairman of the home economics department, said the applied sciences took theoretical know- ledge and gave it prac- tical application. " Home economics not only prepared students with the art of cooking and sewing, but business advantages too, " Joy Schaffer said. " It was really unique. There were so many dif- ferent areas I could get into. It was not only cooking and sewing, but business too. " Military science was another department in the college. Their goal was to ready students in- terested in a military career. Alisa Bird be- came interested because some of her family was involved with military science. " After I graduate, I wou ld like to go to veterinarian school and then into the Army as a vet. " Bird said. If a student was not in- terested in either home economics or military science as a career, in- dustrial arts was also of- fered. Industrial arts tried to interest a student in the graphic areas as well as the technology. " I was basically in- terested in the process, learning how to do dif- ferent procedures, " Steve Haywood said. " They basically taught anything I needed to know to go out and work for a company in the industrial arts field, " Haywood said. Agriculture major Ran- dy Hoy reflected on why he chose agriculture as a career. " Agriculture was getting to be pretty popular. We got better teachers and new ad- ministration to help in future jobs, " Hoy said. With the combination of all applied sciences and their various pro- grams, Mary McDer- mott, business ag major said, " It gave the agriculture department a little broader perspec- tive and made it (the col- lege), as a whole, a little stronger.

Barrera 66 Untraditional classes 1 Breaking the Mold Stereotypes Boy George was not the only gender blender. Men and women at Northwest continued to break stereotypes as they moved into roles not normally associated with their sex. Nursing was one area long associated with on- ly women. As a result, Francis Goeser turned more than a few heads in his nursing uniform. " I think it was hell to be a man in nursing, " Goeser said. " A lot of what we talked about pertained to women, like childbirth and delivery. Since I ' m not a woman or a married man, a lot of this was over my head. " 4 Even so. Sue Gille, director of the nursing program, said there was no difference in teaching male and female nursing students. There were two men, including Goeser, en- rolled in the liscensed practical nursing course and one man in the registered nursing course. Although men were still the minority in nurs- ing, Gille thought the trend was changing. " Salaries for nurses were going up and may have made men more aware of nursing as a career. As more options for women become available, there will be more job openings for men in the field. " As men moved into traditional female areas, women also moved into traditional male do- mains. " Usually I tried to be one of the guys by clowning around with them, " Juli Brown, in- dustrial technology ma- jor, said. Although Brown claimed to be " one of the guys, " she was quick to point out she did not fit the usual stereotype of a woman in a so- called ' ' man ' s major. " " I ' m not the amazon type often categorized as being in a man ' s job, " she said. " Some guys thought the male teachers were more par- tial to women. I thought some possibly were, but with others you had to prove yourself, so it all balanced out. " The instruction of male and female students also balanced out, said Dr. John Rhodes, professor of in- dustrial arts, with one exception. " We had no areas where there were any differences in teaching, " Rhodes said. " But one particular area where women had difficulty was with strength. To solve that problem, we simply helped them or showed them how to do it in an easier way. " Brown received dif- ferent reactions from people who knew her major was industrial arts. " At first they thought it was impressive, that is until they found it was mostly drafting, " Brown said. " Sometimes peo- ple were shocked to hear a woman had a ma- jor in this area, but it was no different than any other field. " Another student who broke a stereotyped role was also rather non- chalant. As one of two male home economics ma- jors. Brad Burns was not impressed with his minority status. " Basically, I was the only guy in my home ec classes, " he said. " Sometimes it was kind of awkward, especially in family health. " But the feeling of uneasiness didn ' t dis- tract Burns from his goal. " 1 plan to go on for my graduate degree and eventually go into hospital nutrition, " Burns said. The availability of employment after grad- uation persuaded some men to try home ec classes, said Dr. Francis Shipley, chairman of the home economics de- partment. " There was no pro- blem with a man getting a position after gradua- tion, " she said. " Men even tended to make higher salaries once employed in the home ec field. The reason we didn ' t have more male majors was because home ec is still perceiv- ed as very much a woman ' s area. " Just as home ec was thought to be a woman ' s area, soldiering was often thought of as a man ' s area. But with the addition of Capt. Deborah Halter to the military science department, another stereotype was broken. Halter was the first female soldier to work in the department. " If the fact I ' m a woman made someone stop and talk to me about the ROTC pro- gram, then 1 was proud to be a role model, " Halter said. Whether it was nurs- ing, industrial arts, home ec or the military, men and women continued to crumble their stereo- typed roles. -Bonnie Corrice Untraditional classes 67 L ombining Knowledse Business Gov ' t The School of Business and Government com- pleted their second year as a stronger college. A major change in the school was the addition of the new dean, Dr. Ron DeYoung. When the economics department combined with business there was a special chemistry which developed, said Dr. Edward Browning, business department chairman. " We have always been lucky in ac- quiring excellent faculty who wanted the best. Northwest has hung to the most talented teachers, " he said. " The business depart- ment widened my knowledge of the business world, " ac- counting major Melissa Ring said. Ring felt her field of study was broad enough to help get a job when she graduated. " A definite key in the department of business and government was the quality of teachers and students, " Barbara Oates said. The government pro- gram also boasted very fine, quality programs in public administration, criminal justice and liberal arts. " The government department had the best of both worlds, being somewhat independent, but having the help of business, " said Dr. Richard Fulton, govern- ment professor. " The combination worked with business and government being united, " Fulton said. " We cooperated well together. " Cooperation was also needed in the two in- ternship programs. The first was in public ad- ministration. This was for majors within the department. Each major had to intern in a state, local or na- tional governmental agency as part of their training for employ- ment. The other program in- cluded an internship in Washington, D.C. A stu- dent got the chance to work in government bureaus, environmental protection and health agencies, justice, educa- tion and commerce departments.

Some advisers encou- raged students to take classes that coincided with their majors, while others said to take elec- tives that would broaden an education. Whatever decision was made, the choice of V appropriate electives was a tough, but necessary task. Most students chose to diversify--take classes that would not only broaden their educa- tion, but would also be of some interest to them. " I took introduction to film study as one of my electives, " Bill Taylor said. " It was a change from classes in my major and allowed me to broaden my education. " Although some stu- dents tried to take elec- tives that would broaden their view, others decid- ed to take electives just because they sounded interesting. " It had a lotto do with what you were in- Pick and _ Choose Electives terested in, " Jennifer Hawkins said. Some students also cited taking classes that would ease their study load. " Personally, I chose electives that gave me a break, " Hawkins said. " The classes in my ma- jor required a lot of reading and writing. I took ceramics as an elective to let my mind rest. " Most students agreed the electives chosen reflected their main in- terest. Some said elec- tives should be chosen from their major field of study. " I think electives in your specific field were necessary to learn more about the subject matter in your major, " Helen Bright said. " I chose my electives on what I thought would benefit me most in my major or minor. " Some students chose electives because they were interested in them and, at the same time, could be a help to their major. " First, I decided what classes I wanted to take. Then I narrowed it down to those that would most benefit my major, " Tracy Herman said. " I made my final decision on what electives I wanted to take. " But students were not the only ones faced with choosing electives, many advisers found the task of choosing elec- tives difficult. " I didn ' t have a set plan on what classes each student should take, it all depended on the individual, " said Dr. Harmon Mothershead, chairman of the history and humanities depart- ment. " I tried to keep them (electives) in a liberal arts category, but it depended on the stu- dent ' s major point of in- terest. " Most advisers believed students should avoid random sampling of electives. " I insisted the students avoid random sampling, just taking it because it was offered at a good time, " Dr. Russell Lord, professor of psychology, said. " They (students) must have had a good reason for taking it. " Both teachers agreed electives should be taken for the class con- tent, not for the teacher or the time. Advisers agreed there was a difference bet- ween suggesting elec- tives to students with a major and to those who we re undeclared. " In the general studies program, I tried to direct students to a course which drew their in- terests, " Mothershead said. Lord advised his students to " take eye- opening courses they had no idea about, " he said. " It may have turn- ed them on to some- thing they want to major in. " While most students took electives within their major. Lord felt this was too restrictive. " In the United States, people ' s careers change at least four times during their lifetime, " he said. " I believed it was impor- tant for a student to diversify himself. The more classes outside his major, the better off he would be. " Beside being diver- sified, students who chose electives outside their major would also show some degree of competency. " If a student was good at something, and took that class, it would show on his transcripts, " Lord said. " The more diver- sified the better. He would also be more competent and that would help in the job search. " But the fact remained there were no set rules for choosing electives. Some students sat and pondered, while some advisers told students what to take. " You could take elec- tives in your field of study or you could take them in other areas, " Taylor said. " But the choice should broaden the educational ex- perience. " -JoAnn Sullivan Stacey Porterfield Electives 71 1 If was an attempt to communicate concerns, problems....

BACK ROW: Penny Brown, Maryann McWilliams, Michelle MeacJe and Creg Keling, 72 Communications New Direction Changes in any field of education are inevitable. In the School of Com- munications, changes involved substantial steps to strengthen the departments individually and still keep them together. Most students in their major department had no w ay to communicate problems and ideas to faculty without meeting them one-on-one. The mass communications department did some- thing about this. Communications Last fall, mass com- munications instructor Fred Lamer saw the need for a " sounding board " for students in the department. He recruited eight students and formed the Student Advisory Committee. " It was an attempt to communicate concerns, problems, questions, likes and dislikes as a whole student body to faculty and staff, " Lamer said. The committee con- sisted of two students from each major in the department: broadcast- ing, journalism, mass media and public rela- tions. Public relations repre- sentative Bruce Winston said the reps from each major held a meeting for students to discuss the good and bad points of the program and make suggestions. " We then presented reports to the faculty, " Winston said. " This way the faculty knew what students wanted, and students knew what faculty wanted. " Some grievances the committee handled dur- ing the year were prac- ticum credits and uniting the various majors. Changes weren ' t just occurring in the mass communications depart- ment. The English department was also in- volved with individual changes. Dr. Jim Saucerman replaced Dr. Carrol Fry as department chairman in July. He has taught in the English department for 22 years. As new chairman, Saucerman was busy getting organized. One activity planned was a study tour of England during summer 1985. " It would include three weeks in England, visiting places of impor- tance to literature, " Saucerman said. Another change was the proposal of a new writing minor. Saucer- man said the new minor " included all kinds of writing: critical, prac- tical, technical, gram- mar, advanced composi- tion and journalism. " Not all the school ' s changes were positive. The number of majors in the speech department was down from previous years. The reason may have been the recent branching off of mass communications into its own department. To combat the trend of students opting not to major in speech, a new major was added, organ- izational communica- tions. " It gave students the opportunity to use the communication skills we taught for fo- cusing on business, " said Dr. Kathie Webster, department chairman. The changes in the School of Communica- tions had impact on stu- dents, faculty and the departments them- selves. But with the changes may have come a new sense of direction for everyone. -Lori Bentz English Honor Society Margie Retter, secretary-treasurer; )ill Har- rison, Helen Bright, president; Jennifer Hawkins, vice president; Sally Tennihill and Lei and May, adviser. Communications 73 " No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher ' s dirty looks, " was a phrase sung by children on the last day of school. The relationship bet- ween students and teachers has been the theme of movies, books and songs. And in all of these, there was conflict. What did teachers do that bothered students? What were the instruc- tors ' pet peeves? Talking, at least in ex- cess, for teachers and a lack of it in students. Dr. Richard Fulton said if anything was annoying, it was talking in class. " Occasionally, if students sat in the back of class and talked, I just stood there and waited, " Dr. Jean Ken- ner said. Dr. John Bowers agreed that inap- propriate talking was an- noying. He said he Time ' s up Anxious to get out of class, Vanessa Maxwell shifts her at- tention from the lecture to her watch and counts the minutes left.

" Was this how " no more teacher ' s dirty looks " started? The talking problem went two ways. Students had their own views. " They didn ' t always make what they said ap- plicable, " Marty Marsh said. A teacher may not have gotten a lecture across to some students, but others felt more strongly. " Some teachers weren ' t able to relate to students, " Mike Brown said. Of course, who said students were perfect? Teachers shared pet peeves about students also. Nancy Bailey said loud gum cracking in class was bothersome and Craig Goad couldn ' t stand pen clickers. Many teachers remarked about tests. Not the administering of, but the nagging for grades afterwards. " They would come up hounding after a test, ' What was my grade. When do we get the test back, ' " Dr. John Hop- per said. Goad was irked when a student who par- ticipated in a fraternity hell week asked to take a test at a later date. " Fraternities and sororities did some pro- ductive things, but things like hell week were counterproduc- tive. " Kenner also said it bothered her when students didn ' t do an assignment and then complained about grades. Teachers and tests hit a nerve in students. " I didn ' t like it when a teacher came to class late on the day of a 74 Irks Distracted One behavior that irritates teachers is inattentiveness. Margaret Miller glances out the window during a Spanish lec- ture. -Photo by T. Ripperger test, " Pattie Felker said. " Then after a test, they didn ' t grade them quick- ly. " Some students also believed teachers had an attitude problem. " Some teachers gave a lot of homework and thought their class was the only one a student had, " Deb Bruce said. But if teachers had an attitude problem, students had an apathy one. " I didn ' t like it when students walked up before class and asked, ' You ' re not going to do ' ; anything important to- v day are you? ' " Dr. John v Baker said. " They were ;0 usually trying to find out ' if there was a quiz so , they could study. " Whether it was at- titudes or apathy, the c irks and quirks con- - tinued to exist for those i in front of the lectern and in back. -Teresa Schueike Snooze One pet peeve most teachers have is sleeping in class.

Trunkhil Irks 75 special Dedication Education Since 1905 when it served 19 northwest Missouri counties as a teacher training in- stitute, Northwest has continued the tradition of teacher education through the College of Education. The College of Educa- tion consisted of educa- tion, health, physical education, recreation and dance and psychology soci- ology departments. " There was 40 per- cent of the student body in education, " said Richard New, chairman of curriculum and in- struction. Students seeking a bachelor of science degree in elementary education and elemen- tary and secondary education did observa- tions and practicums in Horace Mann Learning Center, a campus school for children ages 4 to 1 2. Students wanting degrees in secondary education observed in public schools. " Horace Mann made learning most valuable for university students, " said JoAnn Marion, Horace Mann first grade teacher. " It was the hub of the whole elementary program. " The students were able to get practical ex- perience at Horace Mann before going out to student teach, Marion said. " One thing I liked about the department was teachers who taught Horace Mann kids taught college kids, also, " Judy Claybaker said. " They related ex- periences that happened in Horace Mann to the college students. " Besides taking essen- tial classes and prac- ticums, students applied for admission into the professional teacher education program after they completed 40 credit hours. " In order to be cer- tified, the state required a student have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average and an 18 ACT composite score or 800 SAT score, " New said. " They also had to com- plete student teaching under a qualified in- structor. " Some combinations of teaching and coaching were common. The department of health, physical educa- tion, recreation and dance prepared students to coach, teach physical education or work in a fitness center. The department of- fered courses in swimm- ing, gymnastics, dance, athletic training, first aid, driver training, hunter safety and others. The emphasis was on fun- damentals and skills. Another department under the College of Education was psy- chology sociology. Dealing with the in- teractions of individuals from a genetic and en- vironmental perspec- tive, a psychology major had pre-professional training which led him or her to become a psychologist. On the other hand, a sociology major studied behavior of society preparing for work as a sociologiM. or in soci- ology-related areas. " The psychology department was well- rounded, " Kim Barchers said. " Teachers were concerned about getting students involved. If I was interested in research, I could have found a professor to discuss it with. " Each department had an honorary club. For education majors of all levels. Kappa Delta Pi was the honorary education fraternity. Delta Psi Kappa was the honorary society for health, physical educa- tion and recreation ma- jors. Psi Chi was the na- tional honor society for psychology majors. " There was an open invitation for anyone to come and visit Horace Mann, " Marion said.

" You could have con- sidered nature a classroom, " said Dr. David Easterla, wildlife, ecology and conserva- tion professor. Easterla took his classes on field trips to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge and other wildlife manage- ments. " Field trips rounded out the education, " he said. One of Easterla ' s students, Leslie Smith, took advantage of an outdoor learning ex- perience when she went on a whaling expedition during the summer off the Massachusetts coast. The expedition involv- ed trips across the Atlan- tic Ocean on a 65-foot schooner to study the 30 to 40 foot mammals as they migrated from the arctic to the warm waters of the Bahamas. " We sailed a lot to where they fed and had our lectures at sea, " she said. " Once we swam within 20 feet of the whales, " Smith said. Other students made use of the nonclass- room opportunity to learn. " The broadcasting students did virtually everything out of class, " said Rollie Stadlman, director of broadcast services. " They were in charge of commercials, news, announcing and sales, " Stadlman said. " When they made a triumph or a mistake, they made it in front of thousands of people. " Television broad- casting students covered Special Olympics, plays and the Homecoming parade. They did inter- views, planned camera shots, operated cameras and ran the switcher in the control room. In the same way, agriculture students received hands-on train- ing at the University Farm. Agriculture students took field trips to the North Farm to evaluate beef cattle, dairy cattle and swine. They judged quality and observed dif- ferent breeds of cattle. " Students actually saw and felt what the instruc- tor was talking about rather than just reading about it in class, " said Neville Wilson, agriculture instructor.

Nowatzke The outdoors also of- fered an adventure to the ROTC students who spent one weekend each semester learning survival in the wild- erness at Nodaway Lake. " We used camouflage and learned how to escape and evade, " said Capt. Deborah Halter. " We learned how to set traps for rabbits and we ate the wild game. " " The classes got them outside, " Halter said, " it offered them a challenge they hadn ' t met before and in the process, they learned a little about themselves. " " It was necessary and important to spend time in the classroom and time outside, " Easterla said. " The students lov- ed field trips. I never had a negative response to one.

The most recent addi- tion to the department was the Mary Linn Per- forming Arts Center. Dr. Charles Schultz, chairman of the theatre department, said the performing arts center was considered one of the best in this part of the country, including university and profes- sional facilities. " The new facilities made the department more mar- ketable, " Schultz said. " Students were not wallflowers here, " he said. " The new performing arts center helped enrollment, but we also had an energetic pro- gram with a good reputation, " Schultz said. Choreographed Celebration practices a choreographed routine for their fall performance. The group consisted of 24 per- formers, including eight freshmen. -Photo by B. Corrlce Ulending _ L ultures Fine Arts Humanities " The years of waiting and anticipation finally came to a halt, " theatre major Steve Booten said. " After four years, it was exciting to finally move into the building. " In addition to the theatre department, the school also included the art, music and human- ities departments. Last year, the human- ities and fine arts schools were combined. Tom Hageman said he felt comfortable with the combination and that, " Artists should be philosophers, the two have gone hand-in-hand for centuries. " The Olive DeLuce Fine Arts art gallery, showed a variety of ex- hibits. " The shows were not just to serve the art department, but also to be shared with the University; faculty, stu- dents and community, " Hageman said. The music department served the community through eight groups. Two organizations were part of the music program, the music honorary fraternity for men. Phi Mu Alpha and the honorary music sorority for women, Sigma Alpha lota. The two organizations often combined efforts and helped faculty members with Universi- ty sponsored contests for high school students. The reorganization of the schools brought the humanities department together with fine arts. Dr. Harmon Mother- shead, chairman of the history department said enrollment in the humanities school went up, perhaps as a result of philosophy classes of- fered. The school of humanities included humanities, history, foreign language and philosophy depart- ments. Mothershead said be- ing able to speak a foreign language and an awareness of different cultures was instrumen- tal in job opportunities. " We dealt heavily with what was general rather than specific. We recruited mainly through freshman courses, " Mothershead said. Fine arts and Human- ities was a diversified school which helped students develop their skills and knowledge. Students had the oppor- tunity to work in at- mospheres which con- tributed to their educa- tional needs. -Ann Whitlow ma Alpha lota FRONT ROW: Laurie Engle, Sarah Ernst and Linda Genoa ROW 2: Lori Woods, Martha jrAkes, Marcia Matt.

" When I started teaching in 1949, there were many veterans enrolled. They seemed to be more serious about getting a degree, " said Dr. George Gayler, pro- fessor of history and humanities. " Overall, the student body and faculty are much younger in age when they either start college or begin teaching than they used to be, " said Martha Cooper, head of student academic support ser- vices. " When I started in the registrar ' s office in 1959, only the top students and the ones who had money would go to college. There were also more veterans and older students. " The Bearcat Den used to be the center of activi- ty on campus for the weekends. Cooper said. People went there to dance, meet others and play cards. More of the student body are going home for the weekends and there are also more students who now commute said Veterans Robert Gregory, phy- sic al education instruc- tor. The most considerable changes from past years have been campus im- provements. " When 1 came, there were only five buildings on campus; the Ad- ministration Building, Horace Mann, Martin- dale Gym, men ' s quad- rangle and a women ' s dormitory, " Gayler said. " The student enrollment was about 800. " " I remember people used to hate to park where the fine arts building is now because they had that long walk to the Administration Building for classes, " Dr. George Hinshaw said. There were three teachers in the speech department when Hin- shaw started in 1956. Similarily, the school of business had four faculty members when Dr. Elwyn DeVore, dean of the school of business and government, began in 1950. It has since grown to 35. " This was a small state teachers ' college when 1 started, " DeVore said. " I ' ve seen it grow into a state university. " The music department has grown into a more specialized area, instruc- tor Earle Moss said. " I came here in 1954 as band director, " Moss said. " I witnessed many changes in the cur- riculum for music ma- jors. " " 1 remember when freshmen had to wear green beanies with their names printed on the bill every day until Home- coming, " Cooper said. Freshman hazing was prevalent on campus, Gregory said. Walk-out Day was another changed tradi- tion. " One morning around Homecoming, someone would ring the bell signaling Walk-out Day, " Hinshaw said. " No one was supposed to know when it would be. Whenever the bell rang, everyone just got upl and walked out of class. Overall, numerous dif- ferent events were remembered during the 25-35 years. One such event was the fire in the Ad- ministration Building. " Smoke was coming from my office when I went over to see about the fire, " Hinshaw said. " I didn ' t know what was happening. Everything was up in flames. " Gayler ' s most mem- orable recollection was when Harry S. Truman dedicated the National Guard Armory and Eleanor Roosevelt spoke on campus. " I also remember the food riots on campus with people complain- ing about the cafeteria food in the ' 60s, " Gayler said. " And one time there was a riot between two high school basketball teams during a tourna- ment on campus. I was a scorekeeper, " he said. " I think there was something memorable about each year, " Weichinger said. " But if ! had to choose one most memorable, it would probably be mov- ing into Garrett-Strong and finally holding classes there in the sum- mer of 1968. " Even though the cam- pus has grown in the number of buildings and student body, it was still the right size to get to know people, said Dr. Peter Jackson, dean of graduate school and in- dustrial arts teacher since 1959. " If the student was a better person when he or she left the campus, then we did our job, " he said. According to Gregory, one reward of teaching happens after gradua- tion, " when a student comes back and tells me about his progress.

Growth and opportun- ity were probably the best words to describe the College of Science, Math and Computer Sci- ence. " We kept up with the new technology going on around us, " said Dr. David Smith, dean of the College of Science, Math and Computer Science. " We incorporated com- puters in subjects like biology. We also wrote our own lab books be- cause it was easier to keep up with new infor- ma tion. Our textbooks were usually two years behind all the new technology because it took that long for authors to record data, edit it and publish it. " The College of Sci- ence, Math and Com- puter Science was com- posed of the biology, chemistry and physics, computer science, geo- logy geography, math and statistics and nursing departments. " Some areas related closer to others like the math and computer sci- ence departments because a lot of material in math was computer science related, " Smith said. " Biology consum- ed ail areas. Chemistry calculations were based on math and geology and geography used computers for map- ping. " On the whole, most sciences were based on other supportive areas. " For example, a biology major takes chemistry, physics and more than just the general educa- tion requirements in mathematics, " Smith said. Most students take the first computer class to become more familiar with computers. " The computer sci- ence department was outstanding, " said Dr. Merry McDonald, chair- man of the computer science department. " We had an excellent faculty and state of the art facilities. Students from freshmen through grad students in com- puter science courses had equal access to the systems. " Computer science computing equipment included VAX 11 780 ' s dedicated to academic use, PDP n 44 ' s for special purpose applica- tions, numerous micro- computers and Rain- bow, Apple and Mcin- tosh computers. " Our graduates got jobs in all kinds of areas, " McDonald said. " A computer science major whose first job was a computer pro- grammer would have ex- pected to move up to a responsible systems an- alysis position. Stu- dents with a second ma- jor or minor in computer science found jobs in ap- plication areas. " Besides opportunity, there was evidence of grovk h in the depart- ments. " Since 1978, the biology department had a 15 percent increase in majors, " said Dr. Patrick Wynne, chairman of the biology department. " We had 215 under- graduates in the depart- ment. About 128 majors were in the pre-heaith sciences. Nearly 126 of those 128 majors were admitted to professional schools like dentistry, medical, veterinary, physical therapy medical technician and others. " " There was a con- tinued demand in fields which gave graduates many opportunities for employment, " Wynne said. " This demand- created more interest in the field. We had quality programs and our stu- dents were successful. " Each department had an honorary organiza- tion. Beta Beta Beta was the biology honorary. Gamma Theta Epsilon was the geology geog- raphy honorary. Clubs in math, computer science and chemistry included the Association for Com- puting Machinery and Student Affiliation of American Chemistry Society. " By taking the in- itiative to go see the teachers, I found they were willing to help me with problems, " math major Valerie Harris said. " We wanted to main- tain our curriculum Smith said. " There was more emphasis on math and science at the high school levels because as a society, we became more aware of the need for science and technology.

Barrera 86 Studying Individuai Habits Studying Students developed their own study habits to fit what worked best for them. They studied at different times, in dif- ferent ways and in dif- ferent places. " My favorite place to study was in my dorm room, " Shelly Crowley said. " I sat at my desk with my feet propped up, listening to music. " " My favorite place to study was my room because I could lay around and get comfor- table, " Bill Myers said. Many students agreed the privacy of their room was a real plus when stu- dying. " 1 studied in my lounge chair in my room while listening to Alabama, " Rod Barr said. " My room had a better study atmo- sphere.. I felt confined at the library. " I couldn ' t study in the library, " Lisa Blair said. " I saw people walking by and kept looking up. I was better at blocking things out in my room. " However, some stu- dents found the library the best place to study. " I did most of my studying in the library because of the at- mosphere and quiet, " Darren White said. " ! couldn ' t study in the dorm. " The library and dorms were not the only places students worked. When the weather was nice, some students enjoyed the outdoors. Privacy and quiet seemed to be major fac- tors in finding a place to open textbooks. " I studied at the swim- ming pool after hours because it was so quiet, " Jim Lauridsen said. " I played Bruce Springs- teen and the Doors because they calmed me down. " But not all students worked alone. Some found studying to be more productive when done in small groups. Hudson RA Marcia Matt said, " I was really impressed by the study groups on my floor. As an RA, I saw various study habits and believ- ed that a serious study group was the most pro- ductive way to go. " Billie Hoover studied with a group of three to five people. " A lot of times we sat and made popcorn, quizzing each other, " Hoover said. " My roommate some- times helped me revise themes and found my mistakes, " Valerie Har- ris said. " She would also quiz me. " Many students found that listening to music or watching TV helped them study. " I liked to sit with a Mountain Dew, package of Oreos and loud music in my headphones, " Susan Smith said. " I studied with the radio or TV on, sometimes both, " Dan- ny Rosenbohm said. " It was always funny to watch people study with their door open and the stereo or TV on, " Myers said. " 1 don ' t know how they learned. " Last minute study ses- sions seemed quite com- mon. Some even cram- med until the early hours of the morning. " I didn ' t like to start too early for an exam or project, " Matt said. " My best work was usually done at the last minute. " Other students prefer- red to study for short periods of time at dif- ferent intervals during the day. " Staying up late to study all the time was hard, " Barr said, " i tried to study from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and then a little bit in the early evening. " Students studied at a variety of times, in dif- ferent ways and places. The key to knowing how to study seemed to be what worked best for each individual. -Stacey Porterfield Peaceful Finding the right place to study is often difficult.

Barrera Studying o7 With the authority to adopt rules and regula- tions for conduct of all students and manage the college, the six governing members of the Board of Regents confronted many pro- blems when they met every other month. " One of the biggest concerns facing the Board was the selection of a new president who had the ability to lead us through the current decade, " Board of Regents Vice President Michel Thompson said. Basically, Regents discussed University fun- ding and studied how, if necessary, the Universi- ty could make cuts due to lack of dollars, said Bob Henry, public rela- tions officer. " The Board was re- sponsible for many things, including policy issues across campus and the University ' s first formal development of- fice, which dealt with private fund raising, " Henry said. " Finances were an im- portant problem facing the Board, " said Ted Robinson, Board member. " All higher education was going ( joverning uody i Regents through tough times, but we decided how to put money available to Nor- thwest to its most ex- peditious use. " Other problems en- countered by the Regents included the in- ability to raise faculty salaries and raising stu- dent fees, said Robert Cowherd, Board mem- ber. " We had scarce re- sources, " Thompson said. " I wished we had more money to grant new raises, better main- tain facilities and in- stitute new programs, but we didn ' t. " Another problem we faced was helping the in- stitution define its mis- sion of continuing recruitment and educa- tion of students in its own special way, " Thompson said. Members of the Board of Regents who were ap- pointed by the governor for a six-year term of of- fice included Thomp- son, Robinson, Cow- herd, Sherry Meaders, Leigh Wilson and Presi- dent Alfred McKemy. " Taxpayers, people from the community and people with special skills and interests were who a regional university need- ed on its Board of Regents, " Thompson said. " I thought it would be interesting and educational to be a Board member. " " I accepted the gover- nor ' s appointment as Rege nt member because I had a deep feeling for the University and wanted to see it flourish, " Rob- inson said. " Since the Board changed every two years, the complex- ion of the Board never stayed the same. " " We had a diversity of perspectives from var- ied backgrounds which allowed for unique in- sights and expertise in dealing with problems, " Cowherd said. " There was a more varied opinion to management and the University could draw upon the knowledge of several individuals, with Board Members from different backgrounds, " Robinson said. Because the Board meetings were Univ- ersity-oriented, stu- dents, faculty and com- munity members were entitled to attend the Board meetings, Robin- son said. " Some matters need- ed to be discussed in closed session, but for the most part, the more people who attended the meetings, the better informed they were and the more input they gave, " Thompson said. During the year, the first student to serve on the Board of Regents, Kelly McDowell, was ap- pointed by Governor John Ashcroft. " I saw no problem in having a student ap- pointed to the Board or having students attend meetings because the University was there to educate them, " Cow- herd said. " Most of the time when we received negative feedback about issues it was because the students had no know- ledge of what actually occurred at our meet- ings, " he said. " If they were there at the meetings, they would have had a different perspective. " Even though the Board of Regents incurred several problems, they worked together to decide the major issues encountered by the University. -Maryann McWilliams .

Through three ad- ministrations, Zirfas, as administrative assistant to the president, was not only taught the ropes, but shown them to others. " She is probably the most professional per- son I have ever met and ever been privileged to work with, " said Emeritus President Robert Foster. " In all the years I worked with her, I couldn ' t recall a single time she let things upset her visually and she was always very positive- that took some doing, " Foster said. " An office needed to be run on a professional basis, " Zirfas said. " While dress and ap- pearance were impor- tant, attitude was most important. " Apparently the Zirfas theory worked. In Oc- tober, Zirfas was selected as the nation ' s Top Pro and honored by " The Office Profes- sional. " (competence Plus Professional Hardw ilefli ' i ' Ssk, « " Zirfas was nominated by Janet Lange, former secretary to Vice Presi- dent Bush, for her " pic- ture of efficiency at its peak, " Lange said. " Of course she could type, file, handle the busy telephone; but she also orchestrated a university president ' s inaugura- tion, two presidential searches, ' broke in ' three new presidents and played a large part in the University ' s recovery from the disastrous fire in 1979, " she said. " We had to move into the phone company building to set up a tem- porary office after the fire, " Zirfas said. " From there, we had to call the Board members and state officials. It was my job to make sure everything necessary was moved out of the of- fice. " Because of the fire, the memory that stood out most from the B.D. Owens administration was the constant mov- ing. " We moved more times than I would like to think about, " Zirfas said. Relocating the President ' s office seven times was not an easy task. It was during the Foster administration that Zirfas took on her duties as secretary to the Board of Regents. " When President Foster asked me to be secretary to the Board in 1970 I said, ' Oh those men will never stand for having a woman! ' " Zirfas has held the position for 15 years. " Monica was most unusual in the positive attitude she main- tained, " Foster said. " She was extremely dependable and always met her responsibility with a cheerfulness that was quite unusual. " While Zirfas maintain- ed a professional air, the most frustrating aspect of her position were the constant and numerous deadlines. " The deadlines would kill you, " Zirfas said. " But I loved working with the people. I miss- ed the student contact I had in the Registrar ' s Of- fice. " Zirfas graduated from Horace Mann FHigh School and started work in the Registrar ' s Office, before ascending to the president ' s. Her love for people also showed in her respect for her bosses. " They were all perfect in their own way, " she said. " I loved working with each personality. " Bosses all stress perfection. You ex- pected it from the Presi- dent ' s Office, " Zirfas said. In the issue of " The Office Professional, " Zir- fas offered a tip to office personnel. " The perfect posture for an ad- ministrative assistant was ' ear to the ground, eyes open and mouth shut. ' " " Monica had very high ethical standards, " Foster said. " Probably her most outstanding characteristic was her ability to maintain silence about business. " " Not only was Monica a professional, but she had integrity and was a gracious and highly moral person, " Foster said. " I just couldn ' t say enough nice things about Monica Zirfas. " Blushing, Zirfas gave credit to others for suc- cess in her various endeavors and at- tributed her own success to love of her work. " I like the responsibili- ty, " she said. " There is something special about working in the top of- fice. I just loved my work. This whole institu- tion is so much a part of me and like part of my family.

Trunkhill 92 Chinese exchange i I It was a case of East meeting West when Dr. Virgil Albertini became the first faculty member to go to China as part of an exchange program with the University of In- ternational Business and Economics in Beijing. Albertini credited Dr. Sharon Browning, mar- keting professor, with getting the exchange program underway. " In 1981 I went to China to study, and decided the trade poten- tial was unlimited, " Browning said. She had her work cut out for her. " President Owens liked the idea, but said I would have to raise the money my- self, " she said. " So I rais- ed $40,000 by contac- ting firms who would benefit most from trade. We eventually brought 1 1 top Chinese trade of- ficials here for a three- week visit. " The officials liked what they saw. " They decid- ed they wanted to pur- sue an academic ex- change program, " Browning said. " We were one of only four universities in the United States to have this exchange. " The Chinese Universi- ty first sent Professor Tingbi Wong, chairman of his university ' s English department. Then it was Northwest ' s turn to send a faculty member to China. Much to his sur- prise, Albertini was _East meets West Exchange chosen. " It came as a shock to me, " he said. " The deci- sion was a group one on the part of Browning, Owens, Wong and the Board of Regents. " I wasn ' t asked if I wanted to go, but that was just fine with me, " Albertini said. " It was great. " Once in China, he taught an American short stories course, lec- tured weekly to the stu- dent body on American literature and served as a consultant for senior Chinese professors. " When I first arrived, ! told the professors I wanted to have my students write one 300-500 word paper a week. The professors told me that would be too much, but when students handed in their first papers they were writing at least that much. " " I found it interesting was when I asked them which story they remembered, most of them said the ' New England Nun ' by Sharon Jewett. " This was a local color piece about a 50-year- old nun. It was extreme- ly interesting the Chinese students would remember that story, " he said. Albertini kept long of- fice hours for his seven- week stay. He wanted to have every opportunity to help the Chinese with English, but also because of traffic. " Going through that traffic once a day was enough, " he said. " In fact, sometimes it was amazing we made it from my hotel to the university. " Often if I had a lec- ture or meeting at night, I would just stay at school rather than go back to the hotel. It wasn ' t that the Chinese were poor drivers, but there were so many bicycles, carts and old trucks to contend with, " he said. " I wanted to stay in my office anyway and help as much as possi- ble, " Albertini said. " Often professors would come in to chat with me. " I learned much from these talks, " he said. " I discovered from talking with the senior pro- fessors I worked with that most had read the American author Theodore Dreiser. At first I didn ' t understand why so many were fami- liar with Dreiser, but then I realized he was a Communist. " One highlight of his visit came after a bad beginning. " I was supposed to lecture to the student body one evening, " Albertini said. " This par- ticular night I went back to my hotel before retur- ning to school. I gave myself plenty of time, but there were no available cabs. " Finally, a Chinese gentleman ahead of me said i could take the next available cab since I was going to work, " Alber- tini said. " Well once I got a taxi, my driver got lost. I got to school late and was thinking this was an awful lot of trou- ble to go through for just five or six students. " But Albertini had underestimated his drawing power. " When I walked into the room it was packed. There wasn ' t an inch to spare, " he said. " They started clapping and throughout my two-hour lecture they hardly mov- ed. The most amazing thing was most of them had never read the things I was talking about. They were just eager to learn. " Looking back on his stay, Albertini listed his personal gains. " Back here, I saw my own international students through dif- ferent eyes. I un- derstood them better, especially having lived in a foreign country myself. I also saw my American students better and gain- ed patience, " Albertini said. " I wouldn ' t trade my experience for the three most important things in my life-my wife, my heritage and my profes- sion.

Barrera 94 Retention Searching for J[ nswers Retention After students arrive at Northwest, how do you keep them here until graduation? That ' s a question Dr. John P. Mees, vice presi- dent of student develop- ment, would lil e to answer. Retention is a concern of Mees ' and other administration and faculty members. It isn ' t a new problem. " Colleges have ad- dressed this problem for only the last 20 years, " Mees said. Although the problem itself is not new, one of its causes has been around for a while. " There used to be a philosophical idea that not everyone should go to college, " Mees said. " The number of college- age students had been increasing since World War II, but now there is a decreasing trend in college enrollments. " With a fewer number of available college-age people, colleges and universities must com- pete for students. Once a school recruits students, holding them. retaining them until graduation, becomes a critical conce rn. " Once the institution spends money to recruit, hopefully the student will remain at the school four years. Northwest views the recruitment budget as an investment. The loss of students can be viewed as a financial loss to the school, " Mees said. Along with the lack of available college-age youth, Mees cited several other causes of retention problems. " There can be many factors, " he said, " but basically these can be broken down into economic reasons, at- titudes and morals on campus, composition of the freshman class in terms of commitment to a four-year institution and the recent push by community colleges for students to study while living at home. " No matter what the reasons, Mees admitted retention is a problem. In 1977 Northwest ' s attrition rate was 41.8 percent. It dropped to 37 percent in 1981, but jumped back to 40.8 percent in 1982. Most recent statistics showed 40 percent of last year ' s freshman class left Nor- thwest. The national average is between 40 and 45 per- cent attrition, according to Mees. " We ' re in the process of seeing if we can hold that rate down, " Mees said. But it ' s not as easy as it sounds. Mees formed the on-going Attrition and Retention Commit- tee during the spring. The committee was designed to take up where the Retention and Attrition Task Force, formed in 1978, left oft. Both groups had one goal-to improve the retention problems at Northwest. " The 1978 committee made approximately 35 recommendations for the spring of 1979 and after, " Mees said. " We ' ve accomplished about half of those. To expedite those sugges- tions, we formed the on- going committee. " Why two committees on retention? " Retention is a major area of concern, " Mees said, " and it warrants an on-going plan to help us achieve our goals of reducing the number of students who leave Nor- thwest. " In addition to the recently-formed com- mittee, Mees led the way in improving several other areas. " Basically, we started out by looking at how we were presenting the institution and the students ' perceptions once they get here, " Mees said. " As a result, we im- proved our advisement system, " he said. " We ' ve also im- plemented a basic skills referral in reading, writing and math, coupl- ed with the tutorial system. Also we have worked on follow-ups of attendance patterns and recently began the exit interview process.

Barrera Retention 95 5, ear c king for Answers The exit interview is designed as an oppor- tunity to talk with depar- ting students and discover their reasons for leaving. Although it ' s hard to talk a student out of leaving once he is at the exit interview, Mees believed the process would still help. " We ' ve tried to find out why they were leav- ing before graduation, " he said. " It ' s hard to talk them out of it at that point, but the informa- tion we gain can be in- valuable. " Mees was not alone in his search for the solu- tion to retention. Mar- tha Cooper, head of stu- dent academic support services, " spearheaded the retention efforts on this institution, " Mees Making the grade Improving basic reading, writing and math skills is one way to help solve the retention problem.

Cooper was a member of the 1978 Task Force and the new retention committee, but modest- ly called her role " minimal. " " I ' ve tried hard but i don ' t know if I ' ve been a help, " she said. " I ' m not sure I ' ve made a dif- ference. " Cooper has been fighting the retention battle since she moved from the registrar ' s office to her current position. She continues to look for solutions to the pro- blem. " The main areas where I helped were the career planning course and assisting the undecided majors, " she said. " We ' ve had very good success with the course, " Cooper said. " The course was on volunteer basis so students were there because they wanted to be, she said. They didn ' t feel as though they were being forced to attend. " Cooper also supervis- ed the counselors who worked with undecided majors. " I assisted them in any way possible, " Cooper said. " Often we tried to show the undecided major the benefit of taking ex- ploratory courses in order to determine where their interests lay, " Cooper said. Cooper believed one solution that would help to ease the retention problem was an orienta- tion course. " The shock of a high Help wanted One of the many services on campus to help students is the counseling service. DaveSund- berg offers advice in various areas. -Photo by E. Barrera school student going to college could be soften- ed a bit, " Cooper said. " An orientation course would help in this area. " This class would be designed to teach study skills, how to read a text- book and other things needed, " she said. " Even students who come here with high SAT scores still need to know the basics of stu- dying in a university because the transition is such a shock, " Cooper said. She remains op- timistic. " I still think we can make a difference. I have always been so concerned with this pro- blem because my own education is so precious to me. Losing students is a tremendous waste, " Cooper said. Above all, she stressed the retention effort must be campus wide. " It has to be a university-wide effort. Everyone must get involved in the solu- tions. " Her sentiments are echoed by Mees. " The area of retention is so very important because it affects enroll- ment, it has an impact on Northwest ' s image and an impact on the satisfaction of students who come here, " he said. So the question re- mains; how to keep the rentention rate down and students in school? Mees, Cooper and others continue to search for the answer. -Bonnie Corrice ; ( 96 Retention sfeatureefeaturesfeaturesfeaturesfeaturesfeaturegfeatiiresfeaturesfeatiiresfeaturesfj iiresfeaturesfeaturesfeatiiresfeaturesfeaturesfeaturesfeatiiresfi Come rain, sleet or snow, it only takes one envelope to bring a smile to any face. Make my day It became a daily ritual. As the clock approached 10 a.m., students stormed to the lobby hoping they would be one of the lucky ones. All the rush was over the U.S. mail. By this time every morning, most of the mail had been delivered to its destination on campus. Most students were either at class or were thinking about getting up for a class. This was the time students flocked to their mailboxes to see what today ' s mail brought them. Some students an- ticipated a letter from an old friend, a magazine or maybe a special care package from Mom or Dad. Some students enjoyed reading let- ters from friends at home. This kept them in touch with news at home and what the " old gang " was doing. Other students awaited romantic notes from a boyfriend or girlfriend. If you couldn ' t see someone, the next best thing was to get a letter from them everyday. Letters from parents were also a welcome sight to find in a mailbox. They might include a thoughtful " We miss you! " to a desperately needed $10. Although mail arrived mostly in envelopes, it wasn ' t limited to just let- ters. Packages brought even more ex- citement. These packages included birthday presents, dorm keys left at home or a box of homemade cookies. Those who were truly into reading anticipated their monthly magazines. It was a refreshing change to read an article on " How to Improve Your Love Life " instead of the Civil War in a history text. It was amazing what a little mail could do for a person ' s morale. If a student was in a blue mood, then a let- ter or package from a special person could have them on cloud nine. If a student was already in a great mood, then a letter would make it even bet- ter. There was only one slight drawback to receiving letters, in order to get let- ters one had to write them. For some students this meant staying up late to write a friend they should have written four months ago. Other students managed to keep up with letters by writing them in class, instead of taking notes. Whether you write letters regularly or not, never fear. Some day, somehow, you will be lucky enough to receive at least one letter; even if it ' s addressed to someone who moved five years ago. Meanwhile, clean out the cobwebs in your mailbox and wait. -Teri Ripperger Pen pals Some guys have all the luck as Rob Van Orden finds he has mall in his box.

Pets can fill the gap for companionship. You ' re my best friend whether it was friendship, compa- nionship or a detour from boredom, pets offered students a variety of assets. Each pet, with its unique characteristics, was enjoyed for dif- ferent reasons. For example, LS, a black gerbil found in Hudson Hall, offered her guardian, Susan Smith, companion- ship and provided an interesting con- versation piece. " She liked to listen to music with us, " Smith said. " When she heard it, she would get up and move around her cage. Sometimes, LS would go to bed when we played her music. " Smith ' s roommate, Janice Frump, enjoyed having LS around. " She was a good conversation piece. Lots of peo- ple came into our room to see LS and not us, " Frump said. The girls treated LS like a third room- mate. They put the gerbil in a clear plastic ball with air holes and allowed her to roam around the room in it. " She liked to play in her ball. It gave her freedom to run loose and we didn ' t have to watch her all the time, " Smith said. " She had a little car that worked the same way. She was spoil- ed. " Although pets were entertaining, they did require extra care and atten- tion. " We have a golden retriever who is nine months old, " Larry Spresser said. " We found a lot goes into the care of a dog. She had to have parvo, distemper and rabies shots. " Dogs grow on you, " Spresser said. " I have become very attached to Chancey. I would do just about anything for her and I bet she would do the same. Golden retrievers are probably the most loyal breed of Best friends what could be better than warm sunshine, cool grass and the comfort of a best friend near- by. Scott Knowlton shares his afternoon with his dog Tess. -Photo by S. Trunkhill dogs. " Other pets called for attention also. " I fed my fish live food once a month, " Russell Gilbert said. " Once a day I fed them beef heart. I had to change part of the water in the tank every two weeks. " Gilbert ' s fish collection included two Oscar ' s, a pacu, tw o channel cat and a piranha. Gilbert said his 55 gallon aquarium and equipment cost $250. After he graduates from college, he plans to expand his collection of fish and acquire a 100 gallon aquarium. " It was an enjoyable hobby and I met a lot of new people, " Gilbert said. " They saw my tank in the window and dropped in to ask questions about the fish. " " I would recommend the hobby to anyone if they are patient, " said Gilbert. " The smaller the fish, the harder it was to care for them. The larger they were, the easier it was. " Besides special care, sometimes pets had special names. Shirley Maenhoudt named her pup- py. Boy Dog, after the leader of Culture Club. Dean Andersen named his pet after a talented artist also. " David Boa " was a boa constrictor over six feet long. " He loved songs like ' Little China Girl, ' " Andersen said. David was Andersen ' s special pet. " He wasn ' t any trouble to take care of. He was more human than Terri Ann, (Andersen ' s pet tarantula). She was just a big insect, but David was even ticklish like a person. " " David was also very clean, " Ander- son said. " His skin wasn ' t wet and slimy. like people thought. He had his own heating pad to sleep on and liked to bathe in the bathtub. He ate only one or two times a month. " The types of pets students had varied in many shapes and sizes. " The only pet I had was my brother jeffery, " Deanna Peak said. " My dad said he was the only pet our family would ever have. " Pets act like people in various ways, for instance LS danced to music and David soaked in the tub. But accor- ding to Peak, they don ' t just act, " Pets are people too.

" " Oh, my body aches. " " Where ' s the aspirin? " " I have to go to the doctor. " Sound familiar? For many students it did. it did to those who have encountered what was l nown as the common cold. Symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose and cough were just part of the problem to be dealt with. " The girls on our floor quarantined our room, " Lynnda Barry said. " All because of a little cold. " " At first we (Barry and her room- mate) laughed. We really thought it was funny, " Barry said. " My room- mate had no voice and all 1 did was sniffle. We were known as Squeaky and Sneezy. " Good humor sometimes played an important role in recovery. " 1 always tried to laugh about it, " Crystal McShane said. " It was funny to watch people react to it. " Some people had reaction just to stay away. " Having a cold was like having a taboo sign over my head, " Andrea Novotny said. " People still visited me, but they would stand in the door to talk. It was like the germs wouldn ' t go that far to get them. " When I first started to sniffle, my roommate tried to get me to take every home remedy she knew, " Novotny said. " Some of them I never even heard of, but I tried them anyway. " Home remedies were just part of the recovery. " 1 ate so much chicken noodle soup, that I started checking for feathers, " Todd Allen said. " I swore if 1 got healthy, I would never eat soup again. I haven ' t touched a drop since. " Another precaution against the com- mon cold was to dress warmly, though many students found this was difficult to do. " 1 didn ' t know how to dress down here, " )enny Fleming said. " One day it was 70 degrees and the next it was 30 degrees. " " It was difficult to know what to wear, " said McShane. " The weather around here changed from morning to afternoon. No wonder so many peo- ple got colds. " Although most people tried to avoid a cold at all cost, some still managed to get one. Most people agreed that a positive attitude was essential for recovery. " You couldn ' t let it get you down, " McShane said, " even if people teased you too much. " " My roommate and I always kidded people. We told them to be nice to us, or we ' d breathe on them, " Barry said. Both Barry and McShane agreed that kidding could go too far. " Our room was known as the com- munity sick room. It seemed like everyone on our end of the floor got sick, " Barry said. " We all thought it was funny. That was, until we got quarantined and someone sprayed our door with Lysol. " " I never expected to be quarantin- ed, " Fleming said, " but at least they were nice about it. People still came to visit me. They stood in the doorway, but still visited me. " Down the hatch Taking cough syrup is one way to help ease the discomforts a cold brings.

Barrera Although the majority of students weren ' t subjected to that kind of treat- ment, some of those that were, could still find a way to laugh. McShane and Barry both agreed the best cure was a good laugh. Not all students succumbed to the common cold. Those that did, had their own way of combatting it. Some followed home remedies. Others visited the doctor. And some chose to grin and bear it. " It was important to take care of yourself once you got a cold, " Fleming said. " If you weren ' t, it was a long bat- tle back to good health. You just need- ed to smile. That was the best medicine. " " A smile a day kept the blues away. Besides that, it was cheaper than a doctor bill, " McShane said. -Jo Ann Sullivan 100 Common cold I Ah choo amie Valentine finds that having a cold doesn ' t fit into the schedule of a busy college student. -Photo by C.

Fernandez Common cold There may be no guns or battalion but for some, Northwest is a battleground using words instead of weapons. Last August, 1,460 of them migrated south for the year. They weren ' t birds, but lowan students attending Northwest. Migrators could hardly have com- pared Maryville to a southern resort ike Palm Beach. Missouri natives were often more naive than the seasoned lowan student. Although many ' Misery ' students came from thriving metropolises like Kansas City,St. Louis or St. Joseph, some didn ' t know the difference be- tween Buckhorn oi Michelob beer. The small-town lowegian, on the other hand, could name alcohol content of every whiskey brand on the market. Missourians became quick friends to lowans on Friday afternoon. Somewhat a case of age before intelligence. But if lowans claimed they were so intelligent, why did they come to a Missouri school? " My dad graduated from here, " Brad Mackey said, " it was cheaper than what I could go to school for in owa. " Cost was one reason 29 percent of the student body was from Iowa compared to 56 percent from Missouri. Size was another factor. " I came down here because I wanted to go to a middle-sized school, " Todd Fleming said. " There weren ' t really any in Iowa. " It didn ' t seem to matter whether students preferred to attend North- west Missouri State or Southwest Iowa State, it seemed they were one and the same. Depending on who was telling the joke, the intelligence of both lowans and Missourians was in- sulted. What do you call a fly in the head of a Missourian? The answer was a space-invader. John Youberg shared a story about a Missourian and an lowan who had gas stations across the border from each other. The Missourian threw a grenade over to the lowan ' s station trying to blow it up. The lowan picked up the grenade, pulled the ring and threw it back. Roger Schmidt set the misunderstandings straight. " If you took the southern one-third of Iowa and added it to Missouri, the IQ levels would be raised in both states, " he said. Although lowans liked to claim superiority in intellect, Missourians liked to claim superiority on the field. Sporting a major pro team in almost every athletic event, Missourians were proud of all their teams. Some students would say the only reason Iowa had ever seen AstroTurf was to keep the cheerleaders from grazing on the field. Besides the lack of pro teams, the style of girls ' basketball was dif- ferent. Iowa played six girls, half- court style compared to Missouri ' s five player, full-court. Girls were the basis of many jokes between the states. Ann Demaree compared Missouri girls to garbage. The only difference was that garbage got taken out once a week. " What do you call a pretty girl in Iowa? " Loran Ross asked. The answer, " a visitor. " The war between the states The difference between the two girls: the Iowa girl says, " you can, " and the Missouri girl says, " y ' all can. " Other jokes that have been heard around campus include. Did you hear Missouri has a new zoo? They put a fence around Iowa. Do you know why Missourians can ' t make Kool-Aid? They can ' t figure out how to put two quarts of water in one little package. There may have been plenty of differences, but one thing that both states shared was the ample supply of fields. Driving down Interstate 29, there was no contrast between Missouri and Iowa once the border was crossed. An Iowa pastime was walking beans, while Missourians prefer to walk their dog. Iowa claimed it was " A place to grow. " An optimistic attitude. Missouri was more cynical, con- stantly wanting to be shown proof. The war between these states was just good-natured fun. " We made Missouri-Iowa cut downs just in good fun, " David Piercy said. Missourians said the best thing that ever came out of Iowa was Interstate 29 If that is true, lowans think it is the only good thing that ' s gone into Missouri. -Teresa Schueike MISSaURI 00 Every time you pick up a pen, part of your personality leaks out. Sexuality Everyone unconsciously gives away information about their sexual per- sonality by the way they write. The small letter ' y ' is a key to specific information about sexual interests habits and abilities. Normal method: warm and receptive with no inhibitions. j Long heavy tail: determination, aggressiveness and defensiveness. ,J Unfinished loop: unrealistic, wishful and unfulfilled expectations. Upward slant on tail: frustra- tion, temper and impatience. .M-- Triangle tail: anger and anxiety. yr Downward ending tail: discouragement, depression and anger. Guess what? Every time you send a letter home or turn in an assignment, you expose something about your per- sonality to others. Why, it ' s as clear as the writing on the wall. Graphology is the study of hand- writing. Everyone has a unique style of their own, but through extensive studies scientists have found similiar patterns that may determine who you really are. Signature Your signature is a symbol of the personality which comes across to others. It represents the public image, while the main body of writing represents what one is really like. Through the years, a signature may change as their personality does. If a signature is slanted, the writer ' s inner appearance is the same as they appear to others. The height of the capital letters reflect pride in a name. Very large capitals indicate an ego drive for suc- cess, while an enlarged capital on the last name only, indicates strong family pride. Overly large signatures call at- tention to the self. Placement of the signature is also important. The closer it is to the left margin, the more emotional problems, unhappiness and depressed a person may be. A centered signature indicates one who enjoys being in the center of things. Signing your name close to the right margin may mean you move comfortably through life. Size of writing The size of your writing may deter- mine how much importance you place upon yourself and individual actions. Small writing belongs to an in- telligent, modest and independent person. Medium writing shows a con- forming, practical and realistic person. Large writing may present a sociable, optimistic, restless and spontaneous individual. A person who is ex- travagant and materialistic tends to have extremely large writing. If a variation of small and very small is present, this person will be speedy and inconsistent. A mixture of medium and large indicates the per- son is impatient and enterprising. Tall letters show a person with high goals and aspirations. Small letters usually belong to someone who ex- amines everything in detail. Wide let- ters imply the need for personal space, while narrow are used by those who feel hemmed in by life. Intensity of pressure Pressure of the pen shows the writer ' s emotional power and the level of energy available. Applied pressure may be measured by the indention felt using the thumb and forefinger on both sides of the paper. Light pressure comes from sensitive, shy and forgiving people. Medium pressure is an indication of healthy vitality and willpower. Heavy pressure is left by those who are dynamic or feel a deep emotional tie to what they have written. If pressure appears only in capital letters, bragging may be a characteristic. But if pressure appears only at the end of a word, this person may be a dictator and quarrelsome. Line direction If the whole line of script is written at an upward slant, the writer is op- timistic and ambitious. A downward slant means depression and pessimism or tiredness. People who write in a straight line tend to be dependable, but a bit dull. Everyone is subject to mood and at- titude changes, thus the writer ' s frame of mind must be noted when examin- ing what has been written. Margins Margins reveal relationships with others. They may also show attitudes toward tolerance, consistency and social acceptance. Wide right margins denote someone who wants to keep distant from others. Wide margins all around are i I 104 Personal signs m, The pen has spoken found on samples of lonely, withdrawn or spiritual people. Uneven margins point to a disorganized, versatile and careless person. Even margins show discipline, self- consciousness and a desire to do things properly. The bottom margin reveals sensuali- ty. The wider it is, the less sensual the person. Top margins reflect modesty and regard for the reader. The wider this margin, the greater these qualities. To analyze the qualities of each handwritten sample, a thorough study must be done. A full-page sample, written rapidly on unlined paper in cursive script using a pen is needed for accuracy. The demographics are also necessary. Many other aspects are involved which are not included here, spacing between words and lines and the way individual letters were formed are a few examples. Graphology is the study of per- sonalities; of leaders, the mentally handicapped, criminals, presidents, stars and the person right next door. Graphology is the study of what is uniquely you. Remember, it ' s not always the words you write as the way in which you write them. -Dana Kempker Telltale signs The personal pronoun ' ' has great importance because It is symbolic of the writer ' s self. In this single letter, a person ' s ego, self-image and sense of worth is expressed. The degree and in- fluence by parents in forming a per- sonality is also witnessed. I Printed in cursive writing: in- dependent with a desire to stand out. Stick figure: very independent and mature. Tall inflated loop: vain, im- aginative, enjoys spotlight. a Stem with wide loop: the bigger the loop the more sensitive the person. 8. stem makes tall wide loop: vanity, conceit and arrogance. oL Open ' d ' : chatty and talks a lot. The way a writer crosses a ' t ' exposes their personal drive and willpower. The length, placement and shape of the bar discloses many traits. A writer will often alter their style according to personality changes. Jt Short crossing: lack of con- fidence or timid. AL Average crossing: calmness and self-control. Tall narrow loop: must be in command to feel worthwhile, unrealistic. y Knotted: se f centered, ungiving and emotional in a showy manner. .Jj Upper and lower endings on right: blames others when things go wrong. The small letter ' d ' is also revealing of ego traits and social attitudes. A ' d ' displays how an individual interacts socially with others. CL stem high and retraced: in- dependent with quiet pride and digni- -t- Long crossmg: energy, per- sistence and consumed with ambition. ± Looped stem: imagination and needing support from others. A No crossing: care essness, absent-minded. 7(1 aTlow, medium or high on stem: individual ' s goals will be of correspon- ding importance. Upward slant: optimism, en- thusiasm and ambition.

Personal signs 105 106 Roommates They come from different environments, lifestyles and interests; can they possibly learn to live together without driving each other crazy? Against all odds Was there a perfect roommate? Was the " roomie of the year " fun, exciting, friendly, understanding and sympathetic? Or was the ultimate roommate a mixture of derogatory words, arguments, lights-on-at-all-hours or a live-in boy-friend girlfriend The truth was -- there probably wasn ' t a perfect roommate. At best, people who were " put " together, learned to deal with the other ' s habits and lifestyles. Learning to deal with roommates prepared students in getting along with others later in life. It was a basic 101 crash course in public relations. Choosing the right roommate was a difficult decision. Sometimes the deci- sion was so mind-boggling that a private room seemed to be the only answer. But this idea could quickly dissolve - finances seemed to prevent the luxury of a private room. When choosing a roommate one thing to consider was cleanliness. Could the odd couple actually live together without driving each other crazy? " It bothered me when they didn ' t do their dirty dishes and they sat around so long they started to stink, " Joe Gunther said. " Messy wasn ' t bad, like clothes hanging around, but gross things bothered me. " Another issue between roommates was the lifestyle factor. Did a student come to college for knowledge or for night life? " What I didn ' t like was babysitting when my roommate came home drunk, " Tammy Harryman said. " It was kind of hard to undress a drunk. " But others took the opposite stand. " It didn ' t bother me, " Ron DiBlasi said, " there were enough rooms in the house (AKL member) that 1 could sleep in someone else ' s room if my room- mates were entertaining. " Then there was the problem of the third roommate. " Sometimes I wished 1 had more privacy, " Gunther said. " It was em- barrassing when I had a guest of the opposite sex, and my roommate in- truded and broke the mood. " While some cited money as pro- blems, some said that rooming with high school friends was also hazar- dous. " The worst situation for me was when my best friend from high school and I decided to room together, " Shel- ly Harney said. " It started out fun, but then we got on each other ' s nerves. Now we talk, but it will never be like it used to. " Other roommate problems included borrowing clothes and loaning per- sonal items out without the roomie ' s knowledge. This led to harboring bad feelings. It was quite an experience for a roommate to see that favorite outfit walking on campus or sitting in front of them in class. " It made me mad when my room- mates used my clothes and didn ' t ask. Then they came back dirty, " Allie said. The good news? As well as making problems, roommates also had positive attributes. A roommate could also be a good friend. When it was time to chow, the faithful roommate was always around. A roommate was there to listen to problems and conflicts which made the world seem grim. A roommate could help ease the ' Ville blues in a matter of seconds. Boring times disappeared with the help of a roommate. " It helped a lot, when I was sitting around bored and my roommates dragged me out to a party, " Gunther said. A roommate could relate to pro- blems with the opposite sex, give ad- vice or lend an ear. " A perfect roommate was someone you shared everything with, " Caria Burkhead said. " Someone to get to know and to be close to. " A roommate played the role of " mommie dearest. " As well as being a friend and confidant, a roommate was nursemaid during the cold and flu season. Roommates looked after each other and worried about each other ' s welfare. " It was kind of weird, " Diana Antle said. " I would wonder if she was okay. I worried about her when she stayed out really late. " So most took the good with the bad, after all, nothing was impossible if two people were willing to give a relation- ship their best shot. A team or group effort was a lot more successful than the lonely number one. " I ' d rather have a roommate because if I didn ' t see another face, it would sort of stagnate me, " Gunther said. " I grew with roommates. It broadened my horizons and the peo- ple I knew. I have to learn to deal with other people all through life. " A roommate could be a positive in- fluence now and later in life. It was through others that we better knew ourselves. -Ann Whitlow Pool partners Besides sharing four walls, roommates also find time for recreation.

Trunkhill Roommates 107 Chocolate bars, colas and coffee satisfy their daily habit and keep them awake for all-night studying. Caffeine addiction It was packaged in chocolate, cof- fee, tea, soft drinks and many other over-the-counter medications. Some people needed it to wake up, while others just enjoyed the taste. Caffeine continued to be a " stimulating " addition to many diets. For some, coffee was the main method of consuming caffeine. " I was a coffee drinker, " Shirley Kemp, administrative secretary said. " I drank two or three cups a day. I didn ' t drink enough to tell if it affected my performance. I do know that the first cup of the day was wonderful, especially with sugar. " Baseball Coach James Johnson, was also a Java drinker. " I averaged about three cups a day, " he said. " I knew there usually was a drop in perfor- mance when the caffeine started to wear off. " Associate Dean Dr. Peter Jackson also noticed a change in his job perfor- mance that resulted from too many trips to the coffee pot. Dr. Karen Fulton, associate pro- fessor of English, didn ' t care about the jitters. She just wanted her caffeine. " I drank colas. I was about the only person I knew who drank colas at 8 a.m. The bubbles of the cola ate out the lining of my stomach, but I got the caffeine. " Lori Bentz couldn ' t handle an early morning soft drink, but she still got her fill of caffeine. " I drank lots of ice tea and colas. I couldn ' t drink pop in the morning, but I did get my quota during the day. It just tasted good to me. " Joanne Loomis also enjoyed the taste of caffeine. " I just liked how it tasted, " she said. " Actually, I think I was immune to caffeine, i could drink four cans of pop and still fall asleep. " That wasn ' t the case for John Weiss. " If I had to stay up late and study I would drink coffee, but that was about it. I liked the caffeine in Mountain Dew. It came in handy during long nights of studying. " Finals week and late-night sessions were popular times for students to in- dulge in caffeine. " I spent some all-nighters during finals week, " Norton Lance said. " For those nights i went for straight caf- feine, especially coffee and Pepsi. I didn ' t try the speed in diet pills because I heard you could lose it right in the middle of a test and then it would be all over. So I stuck with the coffee, pot after pot, to keep me up all night. " For Tracey Bekins diet pills were the answer for her caffeine craving during finals. " Pop a couple of those into a system, " Bekins said, " and one could go all night. They kept me awake, but it was an artificial state, due to the caf- feine. A student had to know just how to handle diet pills, otherwise they would get so hyper and not be able to do much studying anyway. " For all-nighters, A.J. Perling wasn ' t particular about the form of caffeine. " Any caffeine kept me awake, " she said. " I thought caffeine in drinks was especially good because of all the trips to the bathroom I had to make. Those trips kept me awake. " Some students, like Maggie Epper- son, were more particular. " I tried No-Doz for long nights of studying, but it was no different than having cola. The caffeine could make some people shaky, but it didn ' t affect me that way. I stayed with caffeine in pop, " Epperson said. One student felt he made a startling Bob ii Susicli, Oi Oen.-W caffeine combination. " Here ' s what I did, " Steve Dunn said. " Mixed a candy bar, chocolate of course, and a Coke. If that didn ' t keep you awake, you were dead. " But for others, more conventional methods of caffeine intake were just fine. " I drank a lot of tea to stay up late to study, " Lisa Blair said. " But even so, I didn ' t stay up all night long to cram for tests. I tried that one time and after staying up all night, even with the caf- feine, I was worse off. " For some, taste was important and not the worries about caffeine. " I drank colas because I liked the taste, " Kim Clements said. " 1 didn ' t think about the caffeine in it because caffeine didn ' t bother me. " Shelly Anderson didn ' t worry about her caffeine intake either. " I drank hot tea when it was cold, but I didn ' t think much about caffeine. " Finals week and all-nighters seemed to warrant heavy caffeine usage, but for most students caffeine was a " stimulating " topic-not a stimulant. -Bonnie Corrice 108 Caffeine addiction Bottled caffeine Displaying another form of caffeine addiction, Bob Montgomery, Regina Sweeney, Scott Susich, Dave Rechsteiner and Natalie Ferguson fill up with various soft drinks in the Spanish Den. -Photo bv E Barrera Caffeine addiction ■J umbrellas were bad luck?

McCall 110 Kid Whether swinging on playground equipment or playing pranks on others, some students find that acting crazy helps relieve tension. Not just for kids Kids will be kids. That ' s all there is to it. Who else would play on swings, slide down slides, search for Easter eggs, play in the mud or even build a snowman? To many people, all those activities would be just for kids. Kids, that is, under the age of 12. " I remember going for walks with friends, then we would start swinging on the swings, " Tammy Lauffer said. " I don ' t know who had more fun, us or the people watching. " " Most of the time we did crazy things just to relieve some tension, " Rhonda Dittmer said. " People pro- bably wondered what planet we came from. There aren ' t many college kids who play on the McDonaldland playground, at least not where I grew up. " Many students said relieving pressure was the main reason for their crazy antics. " I needed to do something, " Jill Erickson said, " otherwise I ' d have gone crazy. " " I found that the crazier the activity the better I felt, " Lauffer said. " I guess the little kid in me needed to get out and breathe. I couldn ' t handle all that pressure. " " I remember tying two doors shut with sheets, then calling those people on the phone, " Delores Sothman said. " I never laughed so hard in my life. They couldn ' t get out of their room. " " I helped with tuck-ins for shy peo- ple on our floor, " Dittmer said. " It was not that we wanted to embarrass them, we just wanted to shock them. It was fun to watch their reactions. " While many students found the unwelcome attention embarrassing, some thrived on it. " I loved it, " Paul Craves said. " I en- joyed watching reactions from people. I remember doing crazy things just to see people turn red. " - " It made people stop, look and real- ly wonder, " Graves said. " Just for that little while, they forgot all their pro- blems. " Bystanders usually benefited from the activities. For a moment, it seem- ed, all problems disappeared. " ! remember watching a mud foot- ball game out on the tundra, " Richele Miner said. " I thought it was great. I Fall fun Sunshine and fallen leaves sometimes brings out the kid in all of us. It is hard to resist the temptation of a leaf fight with friends. -Photo by K.

I forgot about the bad day I was having and the next thing I knew, I was sitting in a puddle covered with mud. " Many students also found themselves in similar situations. " I knew better than to watch from the sidelines, " Sothman said, " too many people enjoyed seeing me dirty or turning 40 shades of red. " Not all situations were embarrass- ing. Many gave a sense of elation or relaxation, others provided memories. " I was happy when a bunch of us did crazy things, " Dittmer said. " It didn ' t have to be much, " Sothman said. " I remember sleigh- riding down in front of Millikan. All we used were plastic trays. " Sometimes just ordinary tasks would turn into a chance to laugh and play. " I remember going for walks with my boyfriend, " Patti Makinen said. " We ' d do something crazy like have a leaf fight, snowball fight or play hide and seek. " Regardless of the goofy, silly or childlike activity, many agreed those times were special. They were time spent with good friends, to share laughter, giggles and create memories. Whoever made the rule playing, laughing and having fun were restricted to those under 12? " My mother honestly believes I ' ll be a kid for the rest of my life, " Sherri Miller said. " It ' s great to go out and have fun. " " I ' ll be a kid for the rest of my life, " Sothman said. " I need to unwind and get crazy, besides 1 like to see people smile. " " Good times are for everyone, " Lauffer said, " not just for kids. " -Jo Ann Sullivan Kids 111 Coping with problems and pressures had some students depressed and frustrated. Feeling down Boredom. Frustration. Despair. Society put demands on students that some weren ' t prepared to handle. They had to manage their emotions, achieve intellectual competence, establish an identity, handle interper- sonal relationships, develop integrity as well as find a purpose, Dr. David- Sundberg, counseling director, said. " It is not easy being a college stu- dent, " he said. " Besides accidents, suicide was the second largest cause of death in this age group. Many were desperate, afraid and not prepared to handle those demands. " While women were depressed more than men, most students experienced a mild depression sometime during college, Sundberg said. " College students have spent 13 years sitting behind a desk at school and were in their 14th or 15th year of doing the same thing, " he said. " Many were bored with the routine and wish- ed they were other places. " During this time, students asked themselves, " Am 1 worth anything? " Some students could handle feelings of worthlessness by projecting them, Armand Mayo Nicholi in " Christianity Today " wrote. Others would avoid all activity involving risk of failure because they might have failed and confirmed what they felt about themselves. " A moderately depressed person may have been mourning a death or a loss of a personal item he or she valued, " Sundberg said. People felt moderately depressed when they failed at school. For in- stance, an A student who failed a test for the first time may have experienc- ed this feeling. On the other hand, a severe depres- sion was characterized by feelings of helplessness and loneliness and would happen to one in five people, Sund- berg said. Loneliness Feeling lonely and down, a student shows the pain of depression. -Photo by S. Trunkhill " He or she may not have felt physically well and experienced mood swings, " he said. The person would withdraw, change eating and sleeping habits, stop bathing, think life wasn ' t worth living and possibily become addicted to alcohol or drugs. The most frequent cause of depres- sion appeared to be an awareness of a gap between the ideal self, (what they thought they ought to be), and the ac- tual self, (what they really were), Nicholi said. " People got so caught up in a daily routine-getting up, going to classes, studying, some socializing and going to bed that they failed to notice simple things in life like the leaves turning col- ors in the fall, " Dean Andersen, Phillips Hall director, said. Most of the time, a person was too demanding of himself or herself or a person had environmental stresses like dating or exams that caused depres- sion, Sundberg said. " I felt depressed when I had an ex- tensive work load or when I wanted to do good at something new, " Karen Howard said. " I tried to channel my frustration into something I wanted to do like writing letters, going out to eat or joggmg. It was important for the person to take time out, Sundberg said. " They needed to examine their emotional self, physical self and spiritual self, " he said. " They needed to look at those things that were caus- ing stress in their lives. Maybe they needed to take time off from school to work, travel or get away from the situation for awhile. " It ' s easy for someone to become depressed, but he or she can ' t be denied those feelings, Sundberg said. Taking time out or talking with a friend could bring life back into order and give the person a chance to figure out the cause. " When someone was depressed and came to talk to me, he was usually behind in a class or was having trouble with a girlfriend, " Andersen said. " I usually tried to point out his positive assets because he was already feeling down about himself. " " It was important to have a purpose in life even if that purpose was to make someone else smile everyday, " Andersen said. " I encouraged people not to get bogged down with the long scope and to live day to day.

A variety of organizations were offered for stu dents to expand their knowledge and make friends. Organizations created an atmosphere for students to grow and become educated not only in their major area of interest, but also in outside activities. Campus Activity Programmers pro- moted two concerts while Student Ser members found themselves more invok- ed after the administration change. Free time was sometimes spent working with peers on money makers or involved in various group activities. Some students joined clubs for reference and contact purposes and didn ' t actively participate. Others concentrated on the leadership and experience clubs offered and compromised responsibilities to fit their change of pace. Round up I As Club sfx nsor.s Ihe annual lackpol Ropins : li Contest.

Each year the new officers combined with the old and worked together to meet the needs of the student body. Tim Beach succeeded Roxanne Swaney as president of Senate, but the was not the only new leader on Senate. " All the committee chairmen were new but one or two, " Beach said. Vicki Batterton, senior senator, was another new member on Student Senate. She experienced a little uncertainty in the beginning. " In the first few weeks everybody was trying to find their niche, " she said. " The new leadership was still ad- justing, " Beach said. " It took some time because we were still learning things. " Like the change in leadership. Senate had some new policies. An amendment passed that allowed students to hold associate memberships in the group. " We ' ve always welcomed volunteers to serve on the committees, " Beach said. " The amendment gave them more recognition. They had all the rights of a member except voting, " Beach said. One activity honored instructors. Senate took one day to pay tribute to the faculty. November 14 was declared Teacher Appreciation Day. " We were trying to think of nice things to do for people on campus, " Batterton said. The women received corsages in their mailboxes and the men, boutonnieres. The cards read " From the students of Northwest. " While Student Senate remained active year round, the Campus Activities Pro- grammers (CAPs) were also kept busy. One problem CAPs battled was lack of student participation in their programs. " I think it was just apathy on campus, " President RaeLynn McClendon said. " Our major problem was that students didn ' t know what CAPs was or what we sponsored, " said Lisa Linhardt, CAPs treasurer. " We were the people who brought entertainment on campus. " The group conducted a survey, with assistance from Donald Nothstine, and obtained an idea of what kind of enter- tainment students wanted. One way to keep costs down was to block book. " We got a better price when we block booked, " McClendon said. " Instead of a performer coming from Los Angeles to Northwest, it was cheaper if he went to all the area schools too. " Block booking was just one way CAPs worked with other schools. " We made contact with other schools, " McClendon said. CAPs also helped publicize acts from other schools, like Missouri Western State College (MWSC). In turn, MWSC publicized Northwest ' s events. " It saved expense, " McClendon said. To help contact schools. Northwest belonged to the Heart of America, a group of other activity programming groups in the four-state area and Col- orado. " This helped us with leadership and finding acts, " McClendon said. -Teresa Schueike Appreciation Day Student Senate sponsors a special day for faculty, Teachers ' Appreciation Day.

Helping people was the main goal of service organizations. Sigma Society, Cir- cle K, Student Ambassadors and the Out- door Program each sought to provide special and helpful services to aid the campus and the community. " Sigma Society was more than just a service organization, " President Jill Wayman said. " It was a way to get to know a variety of people through volunteer work for both the campus and community. Working together was what it was all about. " Sigma Society offered its services to area businesses and organizations for any projects where help would be needed. They visited the elderly at the Nodaway Nursing Home and Maryville Health Center regularly and cleaned at the Autumn House. " We also held our yearly bridal show in the spring, " Treasurer Sherry Smith said. " The bridal show gave brides-to-be a central area to go where they could find things for their wedding. " To gain membership in Sigma Society, students had to be second semester freshmen with at least a 2.0 GPA. Circle K was also busy helping people 118 Organizations ice Some groups sponsored projects to benefit students, as well as the community with a smile ' " goal oi iociety.Cif. idttieOyt- to provide 10 aid tilt III lOSI ) esideol |i| iy 10 get to lie Ibrougk campysanii « was what services to lioosforaoy be needed, ' e Nodaway le HealU ned at tlie bridal sbo« berry Smilli brides-tO ' !ycoyldfinii [ima Society, id semeslei CPA, Ipingpeop on campus, in the community and peo- ple outside this area. " One thing we did on campus was stail a lighting fund to get more lights on cam- pus. For another project, we adopted an 8-year-old boy in Arkansas and sent money once a month, " President Diane Lesher said. Circle K adopted an area family and served them meals on Easter, Thanksgiv- ing and Christmas. They had Halloween parties for the area nursing homes, the Community Center and Van ' s Home. They also sponsored a Softball throw at the Special Olympics. " We tried to help those who were alone in life, " Lesher said. Anyone could join Circle K. The only requirements were to pay dues and put in five hours of service. " In Circle K, you had the opportunity to get involved and help people both on campus and in the community, " Treasurer Fran Barberis said. Bringing students and the University closer together was the ultimate goal of Student Ambassadors. They welcomed prospective students, gave tours and answered questions about the University. One special contribution they made was Senior Day. " It was our show on Senior Day, " said Barry Myers, president of Student Am- bassadors. " We were in charge of the whole thing. We planned games, sent let- ters and took care of all the little things that had to be done to make the day a success. " Student Ambassadors often made the first, and sometimes the strongest, im- pression on incoming students. They were selected from second semester freshmen and first semester sophomores with a minimum CPA of 2.5 and after go- ing through an interview process. " It felt great to come back in Fall and have someone come up and say ' Hi, remember me? You gave me a tour, ' " said Dave Davis, secretary-treasurer. Another student service club on cam- pus was the Outdoor Program. Low cost trips were planned for students who wished to participate in the program. " We provided a break from the daily routine of classes with inexpensive trips, " Head Coordinator Kent Birth said. " Some of our trips were also educational. " Some trips organized by the group in- cluded canoeing in the Ozarks, ski trips, backpacking in the Great Smokey Moun- tains, skydiving and horseback riding. " We had the largest turnouts for our ski trip over Christmas and our spring break trip to Big Bend National Park, " said Andy Perkins, publicity coordinator. " 1 enjoyed meeting all the people who went on the trips and, of course, the trips themselves, " Perkins said. -Stacey Porterfield Mother Nature Backpacking is one activity sponsored by the Outdoor Program.

Organizations 119 Hall councils plan activities while IRC tries to solve problems that occur in dorm life ouncils assist residents Hall councils gave students a chance to be heard, while working toward a com- mon goal-improving dorm life. " Basically we tried to provide what we could to better dorm life, " said Steve Nichols, vice president of Dieterich Hall Council. " We tried to plan activities that promoted dorm spirit and unity. " Many hall councils agreed that hall uni- ty was essential. " We tried to spread spirit. If we were proud of the hall, then we would work to ensure the quality of living we had in our dorm, " said Brad Thein, president of Franken Hall. " We tried to get people involved-that way we promoted unity, " said Kent Wheeler, vice president of North Com- plex. " We found that if we limited our activities, we got more involvement and more spirit. " Activities offered throughout the year ranged from painting stairwells, hosting a carnival for the sheltered workshop, sponsoring a street dance, offering a haunted house, caroling at nursing homes and having brother-sister dorms. " We tried to do things that would not only benefit us as a dorm, but as a cam- pus, " Thein said. " When we established our brother- sister dorm, we did it mainly so the girls would have the chance to meet guys from other dorms, " said Lisa Courier, Perrin Hall president. " We wanted the girls to have friends in another hall. " While many people thought all the hall councils did was provide entertainment and social activities, they were wrong. " We were required to have educa- Bed ride Before the Homecoming parade, Laura Blumenkemper, Lisa Lutes, Linda Quarti and Heidi Hemmerlein wait while finishing touches are added to their National Residence Hall Honorary entry, Bedknobs and Broomsticks. -Photo by E. Barrera tional programs, " Nichols said. " They weren ' t our biggest drawing cards. It was hard to plan something like that in a guys ' dorm, so we tried to target it toward a certain group. " " The educational programs varied with each dorm, " said Crystal McShane, cam- pus coordinator for Millikan. " I thought the girls ' dorms had it easier because they did programs from make-up and fashions to self defense. Whatever the program, it had to give the person a new idea or approach to the activity. " Not all programs dealt with beauty tips or self-defense. Other programs offered included cardio-pulmonary re- suscitation techniques, study habits and budgets. " We had a motivational seminar for all hall councils, " Thein said. " It was fan- tastic. Everyone was really psyched. When they left they had a lot of good ideas. " Being " psyched " was an essential part of the meetings, according to Thein and Courter. " We tried to keep our meetings short and interesting, that way more people were willing to join, " Courter said. While some dorms experienced good hall unity and large participation in ac- tivities, others were just beginning that process. " Because we lived in Roberta, we had to overcome the stereotype of being four little houses living in one building, " said Diane Watson, president of Roberta Hall. " When we were in meetings, we were a hall first and a sorority second. Our main goals were to provide a better living en- vironment and to have the girls know people from the other sororities. " But Roberta wasn ' t the only dorm that had problems-they all did. " It was hard to plan an activity when there was a lack of interest, " said Phil Murphy, vice president of Phillips Hall. 120 Hall council " The biggest problem we faced was the preconceived idea that all our meetings were boring and not worthwhile, " Wheeler said. " Most people didn ' t know we set a majority of policies concerning the hall. Sure we had fun, but we were serious when we needed to be. " While hall council members were responsible for setting many of the policies that effected living conditions in the residence, they also benefited from the practical experience in planning, coordinating and implementing pro- grams. " I felt more comfortable speaking in front of people than when I first started on the council, " Wheeler said. " The ex- periences ! had were priceless. I learned so much from actually planning and put- ting on programs. " Many hall council members said they learned leadership skills from their coun- cil experience. " I learned what it was like to be a leader, handle situations and work one on one with people, " Watson said. " More importantly, I learned to cooperate and to give. " " We told people that what they put in- to the council was what they would get back, " Courter said. " The benefits from being on council were irreplacable. " " Hall council just didn ' t plan programs to educate or to entertain, it also gave hands-on training for the real world, " Wheeler said. While all the councils planned separate activities for their respective dorms, one organization on campus provided a forum where dorms met, discussed pro- blems and expressed ideas to each other. Weekly, four members from each hall council assembled for the Inter- Residence Council (IRC) meeting. " We represented the hall as one unit, " said Rick Jacobsen, IRC vice-president. -continued Franken Hall Council FRONT ROW; Chrib Wainwrighl, Lyie Blan- chard.

" At the meetings, we forgot we were from different dorms because we discuss- ed issues that pertained to every dorm, not just one in particular, " Jacobsen said. " IRC was an important part of the dorms, " Wheeler said. " It was nice to know if we (the dorm) had a problem, we could discuss it during the meeting. Usually another dorm had experienced a similar problem and could offer a solu- tion. " While IRC may have seemed to pertain just to residence halls, i t also offered pro- grams for the University. " We tried to make the students more aware of our organization when we of- fered the Trivial Pursuit Challenge, " Jacobsen said. " When people registered, some asked us what we were. People became interested. " IRC also tried to offer a variety of social and educational programs as well. " Our main purpose as a governing body was to oversee dorm activities, but we did more than just that, " Jacobsen said. " We offered two programs as an in- centive for dorms. One was Hall of the Month, the other was Student of the Month, " Jacobsen said. " In these programs residents could tell what their hall had been doing and which students gave the most to the hall, " Wheelei i been in till Award t)i " Many( petition lacobsen residents campus. and benf Resident ' s work The men and women of South Complex Hall Council complete work on their house dec, winning first place in the independent divi- sion. -Photo by E.

We worked hard to make university campus life more interesting and beneficial to residents. " --JoAnn Sullivan ■ .-. • -f •■« ' w m.

Club members took field trips and learned more about their area of interest. Besides field trips, the groups also in- vited several guest speakers to their meetings. The speakers lectured on career opportunities and subjects related to potential career selections.

The group went on field trips to the American Psychology Association and he Midwest Research Center, both in ansas City. The group listened to lec- ures on psychology experiments and abservations. Psi Chi sponsored fund raisers such as doughnut sales in the dorms to subsidize heir field trips. Treasurer Kathleen Snider iaid Psi Chi also entered an essay contest and submitted papers for cash prizes to he National Sociology and Psychology ssociation. The Psychology Sociology group was available for students interested in these ireas. The group took field trips to slebraska Wesling University ' s ' sychology Fair and to various research agencies in Kansas City. Members visited he Iowa State Hospital and Prison Com- jlex in Clarinda, la. Members of the group volunteered ime to Van ' s Group Home, a sheltered ,vorkshop in Maryville. They also spon- ,ored socials for those in the home. The group ' s sponsor, Wayne Van- 7omeren said guest speakers were in- vited to bi-monthly meetings. Speakers informed members of available employ- ment in psychology and sociology. The American Chemical Society (ACS) was a student group affiliated with the professional, national organization. Students were eligible to join the national organization after they received their bachelor ' s degree. The group traveled to St. Louis to the American Chemical Society Convention and to the national convention in Miami. ACS sponsored its annual spring essay contest for high school students in the four-state area. The top two entries were invited to ACS ' annual banquet. Winners were awarded prizes for their efforts. The group met weekly and brought in guest speakers who spoke on career- related subjects. ACS held their annual fund raiser by sponsoring a chemistry and math book sale. Instructors donated books and the group sold them to raise money for ac- tivities. Funds were used to subsidize field trips and help pay for guest speakers. The Agronomy Club was open to students with an interest in soil conserva- tion and crop production. Sponsor Neville Wilson said the group went to Iowa to the John Deere Imple- ment Company. The group also met bi- monthly and welcomed several area guest speakers. The Agronomy Club, an affiliate of the American Society of Agronomy, atten ded national meetings in various cities. The major fund raiser for the club was a plant mount and seed sample sale. The plants and seeds were sold to Future Farmers of America throughout Missouri. Guest speakers were invited to lecture on job opportunities, graduate school and field camps. These camps, summer practical courses for geology majors, were worth six to eight hours of credit. Selected students were sent to larger universities to take the courses. The group hosted fund raisers, in- cluding bake sales and car washes. Profits went toward guest speakers and a scholarship fund. This fund was awarded to a geology or geography major. Whether it was life sciences or social sciences, students could learn more about their field of interest through departmental groups. -Ann Whitlow Agriculture clubs combine farming with business for dollars and sense griculture means business There was more to agriculture than just farming. The members of the Agriculture Club, Agriculture Business Club and Agriculture Council learned more about the business side of farming. The Agricultural Club provided an op- portunity for students interested in agriculture to get together and exchange ideas. " Ag Club involved more than just lear- ning about agriculture itself, " Secretary Teresa Scheel said. " The club was con- cerned with those areas of business that were affected by agriculture and provid- ed opportunities to come up with new ideas for improvements in ag-related areas, " Scheel said. The Ag Club held their annual roping contest and organized Barnwarming. They also sold turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas with proceeds going to the Maryville Christmas Fund. " Probably our biggest accomplishment was having our bid accepted to host the Ag Conclave, " Todd Allen said. " At the Ag Conclave different agricultural organizations from across the United States come together to attend workshops, trade ideas and meet people. This is really a big honor to host, " Allen said. The Agricultural Business Club gave members the opportunity to learn more about the business aspect of agriculture. " Our primary goal was to put students in touch with the types of jobs available and the qualifications looked for, " spon- sor Duane Jewell said. " The organization also provided students with an oppor- tunity to make contact with people already employed in the agriculture business area. " The group invited guests to speak about business and agriculture. Speakers included ag business executives and bank loan officers. It provided a chance to get to know other people in ag business or in job-related areas, President Mike Marsden said. " At every meeting we found out more about job oppor- tunities, " he said. Trips were also planned to provide members with better ideas about job possibilities and what they entailed. " We visited Kansas City Board of Trade and attended the annual meeting of Farmland Industries, " said Kelly Maack, secretary-treasurer. The Agricultural Council was a small group that worked to unite the other agricultural organizations. " Ag Council was basically a coordinating board, " sponsor Neville Wilson said. " They coor- dinated the activities of the other agricultural clubs. " The council was a select group of two representatives from each organization. The Ag Council ' s most important activity involved organizing the Spring Awards Banquet. " We also organized a Trivia Bowl for fun, " said Council President Keith Kinne. " In the Trivia Bowl, teams from the dif- ferent Ag Clubs competed against each other. " " I liked being involved with all of the different clubs and activities, " David Schafer said. " I also enjoyed helping to bring those clubs closer together into one group. " -Stacey Porterfield Rodeo Action and excitement highlights the Jackpot Rodeo at the University Farm.

" Overall, we were a professional group set up to help students make the transi- tion from the educational world to the professional world, " Browning said. Members of the Association of Com- puting Machinery were also busy. " We were a student chapter of the na- tional organization that promoted scholarship and provided a forum for in- terested students, " said Robert Franks, group sponsor. Nearly 70 members took part in the club ' s activities. " We sponsored various speakers, helped the computer science department with the Computer Science Olympiad for high school students, sponsored a team that attended the national convention and had several social events, " Franks said. " For the first time, we held a raffle for an Atari 5200, " Franks said. " We used the funds for our group ' s activities and paid for speakers. " Meanwhile, the American Marketing Association and sponsor Donald Nothstine stayed active. " We had our own button machine and sold buttons during the year, " Nothstine said. " We also raised money by selling credit card applications for various stores. " Group members gained direct sales ex- perience and raised money to pay for speakers and films. " We watched several films, " Nothstine said. " We saw one on publicity for the Phoenix Sun basketball team and another on marketing Southwest Airlines. Our group gave the kids a chance to get real marketing experience.

Members learn- ed other aspects of education besides what was taught in a classroom. Naomi Bienfang, president, said the group invited two Northwest graduates back to talk about their first year of teaching. " They told us what to expect and what not to expect, " she said. MENC members attended the state conference. The conference was three days of displays and concerts. " Students close to graduation could learn company ' s names, products to buy and different selections that were good for different sizes of choirs, " Bienfang said. " It gave an idea of what goes on in all aspects of music education. " Learning more than what is taught in a classroom was one reason why the In- dustrial Arts Club took industrial tours. " In the classroom, you went through the procedure, but that wasn ' t how it tru- ly was, " said Stephen Hayward. " In a classroom, you don ' t have the hands-on experience. " By taking industrial tours, the club had a chance to see how the actual product was made and could observe some steps that were left out of the classroom lec- ture. The club toured local industries like Riegel and the John Deere company in Des Moines. The group had 1 6 members. " We were very small but we got quite a bit done, " Hayward said. " You knew everyone, it wasn ' t uptight. You could kid around a lot. " Public Relations Student Society of America, (PRSSA) the professional cam- pus organization for public relations ma- jors, was able to use the elections as a tool to get practical experience. " We did a brochure for a local can- didate, " Bruce Winston, president, said. The candidate was Bill Arthaud who ran for the North District judgeship. " We used a combination of ideas and skills we learned in class, " Winston said. " We learned to carry out his theme, ' Time for a change ' . " Winston said the group did not per- sonally support the candidate. " The dif- ficulty was making the person look good that we didn ' t know, " Winston said. Ar- thaud won the election. Winston said PRSSA wanted to do another brochure. This one to promote their own group. " We wanted to get more underclassmen involved, " he said. displayeiit t ' ' e 111 semeste ' - " dent.

To learn more about teaching, the Stu- dent Missouri State Teachers ' Association invited speakers to meetings for presenta- tions on hints for teaching and preparing for student teaching. " We went out to area high schools and recruited for the education department, " President Jill Wayman said. " We took field trips to the Learning Exchange, a warehouse for learning materials in Kan- sas City. " As a professionally-oriented group, American Home Economics Association hosted the Annual Leadership Workshop in September and held several fund raisers to send members to the state con- vention in St. Louis. " It was a leadership organization, " President Penny Helle said. " We met many professional people. " " We sent Valentine ' s Day cards to the elderly and had an Easter egg hunt with Head Start children, " Helle said. " Whatever the member put into the organization was what they got out of it. " Students s t involved with the community as service organizations benefit and assist others ' e helping people An important service and professional srganization was Student Practical Nurses. Every member was a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) student. In addition to attending classes, LPN ' s Dbserved clinical practices and became helpers in the hospital and nursing nomes. They visited Childrens ' Mercy Hospital burn unit and the newborn nursery which had a premature section, olus other special problem baby units. The LPN ' s assisted with minor surgery in doctors ' offices and observed surgery in :he hospital. The LPN ' s held a raffle as a money- Tiaking project to send representatives to •.he state convention in Columbia. Awards were given to nurses with perfect attendance in the first semester. (The students voted on one nurse who nad most nearly achieved the goal of an " ideal " nurse. " There were several community pro- jects that the LPN ' s did on their own time, " Stanton said. " We helped with Special Olympics and we started an Alzheimer ' s Disease support group for the families of patients with this senile ,r dementia.

Frahm received a list of children ' s names at the beginning of the year and each K.l.D.S. member decided whether he or she would like a little sister or brother. The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) was a pre- professional organization for students majoring in communication disorders and was affiliated with the American Speech Language Hearing Association, a professional organization for speech pathologists and audiologists. " NSSLHA was very active both profes- sionally and socially, " President Penny Larson said. " One objective of our organization was to provide exposure to issues and current trends in the profes- sion through interaction with other pro- fessionals, group discussions, guest lec- turers and field trips. We were also in- volved with campus and community pro- jects. " -Maryann McWilliams Wrap it up Nursing takes a lot of hard work and dedication.

Barrera Organizations 133 Students aim high for academic excellence to make potential careers more feasible olleding career collateral Getting involved in an honor society was a way for people who shared com- mon interests and goals to get together. Cardinal Key National Honor Society and Blue Key National Honor Fraternity were groups established for leadership. Their members shared similar backgrounds of leadership abilities and high scholastic standings. Cardinal Key was an honorary organization for students with a 3.0 GPA and were members of other organiza- tions. Previously, membership was open only to members who were inducted as juniors and participated as seniors. This year membership was opened up to sophomores who qualified and had a GPA of 3.5. " Cardinal Key gave students something to shoot for, " President Jill Harrison said. " In the past, members only had the chance to work together for one year. Now that it was juniors and seniors, members would get a chance to work together longer and would carry over in- to the next year. Hopefully this helped us to become better known on campus. " Members kept busy during the fall making arrangements for the Regional Cardinal Key Conference which they hosted in November. Another activity participated in was collecting money at football and basket- ball games, which they donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. The brother fraternity to Cardinal Key was Blue Key. Members of Blue Key ex- pressed good leadership abilities and were individuals of high scholastic stan- ding. Blue Key was open to male students, but like Cardinal Key, was primarily composed of juniors and seniors. 1 34 Organizations " As freshmen and sophomores, students didn ' t have time to establish themselves as leaders in campus organizations, " President Frank Sullivan said. " Blue Key was an honor fraternity designed to stimulate ambition for all- around leadership qualities. " The opportunity existed for Blue Key members who did extraordinary work beneficial to the University, to receive recognition through the honorary award of " Man of the Month. " " Through this organization, members were encouraged to take leadership abilities and apply them to other organizations which benefited their ac- tivities on campus, " member Brian Daniel said. Blue Key held a Homecoming Banquet for Blue Key alumni. During the spring, they hosted the annual Tower Dance in conjunction with unveiling the Tower Yearbook and featuring a Tower Queen. A group established not as much for leadership, but still sharing the common background of high scholastic achieve- ment, was the Honors Program. Students with a certain high school GPA and an ACT composite of 27 or bet- ter were eligible for Honors Program. Members took special modified courses provided as alternatives to basic general requirements. " These modified courses tended to be more specialized and covered material at a faster rate for those who enjoyed courses that were Receiving the key Cardinal Key member Brian Daniel presents Allyso n Coodwyn with her key as she is initiated in- to the honorary. -Photo by S.

Organizations 135 -I I Line of communication Keeping channels of communication open was a full time job. The work was time consuming on both ends of the communication spectrum in print as well as the electronic media. It was student involvement and dedica- tion that made the mass communication programs work. From the broadcasting perspective, television courses opened new and ex- citing ventures to students. Television practicum and production students spent several hours producing. One of their first endeavors was the third annual Homecoming parade coverage. " Putting together the parade broadcast took between 200 and 300 hours including meetings and engineer- ing, " said F red Lamer, instructor of televi- sion classes. Students were in charge of actual pro- duction of their projects. The same type of ' hands-on training ' was available for radio production and practicum students. The two campus based radio stations were KDLX and FM public radio station KXCV. KDLX was student managed and operated. Students got involved in com- mercial production, sales, announcing, news and sports. KDLX had problems with filling the 18 hour daily shifts. " Our numbers were down and there was an attitude problem, " Mike Johnson KDLX station manager said. " We lost a lot of leader- ship in upperclassmen because they tried to draw a line between television and radio. " There was a change in practicum leadership when Operations Manager, Cory Dennison replaced Director of Broadcasting, Rollie Stadlman. Pen in hand, the print aspect of com- munications also offered practical ex- perience. Yearbook and newspaper publications were available to students interested in the print media. This year, the newspaper tried a new approach to leadership. Adviser Laura Widmer introduced a tri-editorship to the Missourian staff. The three editors, Kim- bal Mothershead, Penny Brown and Teresa Schueike had problems with the overall plan. " It was hard to work as an editor-in- chief because the word applied to three 136 Organizations different people, " Mothershead said. " First semester, it was rough because roles were not defined. By second semester, things began to fall into place because of the experience we had and the roles we needed to fill. " A newspaper production night includ- ed typesetting, headline writing, layout and proofreading. Yearbook production required work weekends when staff members actually put the book together. " Staff members did the yearbook, " Tower Editor Dana Kempker said. " I may have been the last one to leave the building each night, but I ' m not the only one who put the book together. " Long hours and late nights were spent in McCracken Hall by all who par- ticipated in journalism practicums. Another individual who devoted hours of time to the publications was yearbook and newspaper adviser Widmer. Widmer said she thought the depart- ment as a whole did an exceptional job. Although there were problems with the tri-editorship she said effort was put forth. " Overall, I don ' t feel that it was detrimental to the newspaper itself. The editors weren ' t afraid to try new ideas. Design-wise, the paper looked great, " Widmer said. The 1984 Tower won a Five Star All- American Award. The staff was presented with the challenge to better, or equal, the quality of the 1984 book. " We had some editors who dropped, became ill or transferred. It could have been disasterous, but the transitions were smooth and the quality of the book didn ' t suffer. I ' m excited about this book. The staff has gone the extra mile to produce the best book this university has ever seen, " Widmer said. " People should have tried both sides of communication, " public relations major Bruce Winston said. " Being involved in both journalism and broadcasting gave me a more diversified outlook and objec- tivity of what the University had to offer.

University Players got students involved in theatre productions. University Players worked on all university theatre productions, said Sam Hahn, vice president. This included ac- ting, technical jobs and other aspects of the field. " We just wanted to provide better productions and involve all students, " Hahn said. Outside the theatre. University Players held awards for One Acts, a series of student-directed plays. Awards for acting, technical and overall contribution were also given. A workshop was held for high school students interested in theatre. The Sigma Phi Dolphins were involved in another aspect of performing, sychronized swimming. President Kathie Zierke said the group practiced three hours weekly, plus in- dividual practice, to prepare for their an- nual show in April. " Performances were a time to show our talent, to really let it escape, " Zierke In the Missouri Ozarks, Ed Heck and Joe Manner row down Gasconade River.

Dolphins held weekly clinics to teach community children syn- chronized swimming. " The Sigma Phi Dolphins were an ex- cellent way to use the swimming facilities here, " Zierke said. " It was also neat get- ting to know people on the team. " A club that worked on getting to know nature better was the 102 River Club. President joe Manner described the group as being " for people who wanted to get involved with current outdoor issues and problems, like ecology and wildlife. " The outdoors-related club mostly at- tracted wildlife majors, but was open to everyone. Activities ranged from listening to special guest speakers and seminars, to spelunking (cave exploring) and canoe- ing in the Ozarks or cleaning up the Nodaway Lake area. Manner said they also did volunteer work at the Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge. " We worked at the Visitor Center, giving out information and show- ing people around. " It was fun and a chance to get away. " " Maving fun " and " keeping up on skills were the Fencing Club ' s goals, " Joe Steinhauser said. Members included students who had, or were taking, fencing class with Dorothy Walker. " The main thing was to keep active, to keep from getting rusty, " Steinhauser said. " Club rules weren ' t rigid, it was just something fun to do on a Wednesday night. " -continued Interesting habits Special interest groups were an impor- tant part of campus life to some students. They provided members with social, educational and recreational activities and offered the campus services and pro- grams. As a whole, some students found togetherness could work. The Pre-Med Club concerned itself with working and learning with people in their major. President Linda Johnson said all health and medical majors could be in the club. Although " studies in these fields took a lot of time, " Johnson said the club got things done. In April, they held an eye drive, in which donors signed up for the eye bank. Members of Pre-Med Club also rar, the concession stand at Bearcat football games and took a field trip to observe how some medical centers worked. A new group, striving towards goals of achievement, was the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. Although they were not yet recognized by Inter-Fraternity Council, they were waiting for council approval in hopes of becoming the eighth social fraternity on campus. Another group concerned with togetherness was Harambee. Harambee meant " coming together, " secretary Michelle Lewis said. A big part of Harambee was promoting black awareness. They sponsored a black dance and music group from St. Louis, created a display for Black History Month (February) and attended a black leader- ship conference. " I had a positive point of view about Harambee, " Lewis said. " It brought blacks closer and helped us get to know Horace Mann The Tower 4-H Club sponsored a leadership pro- gram at Horace Mann School. Members oversaw the children in photography, art and other classes in an effort to bring the club and community closer together. -Photo by D. Nowatzke people. 1 felt like I fit in. " Working for the community was a positive part of Tower 4-H. Affiliated with Missouri Collegiate 4-H, the chapter worked on several different projects. " We held a Christmas party at Van ' s Croup Home for the mentally retarded, " Vice President Tracy Wood said. " We also led a School Enrichment Program at Horace Mann. " Wood said Tower 4-H ' s main purpose was " to serve the community and pro- mote 4-H. We all had to work together. " Working together " to share beliefs with other Christians, with both athletes and non-athletes " was how Co-President Jody Brady described Fellowship of Chris- tian Atheletes (FCA). FCA was involved in a Jog-a-thon and sold programs at Kansas City Chiefs games. The co-presidents gave a session on handling stressful situations, and started an FCA chapter at Maryville High School. Member Cindy Wolfe said one meeting was different because they used music for relaxation and meditation. " It was good because it was a chance to get in touch with God ' s words and people your own age, " Wolfe said. Getting in touch with other foreign students was the purpose of the Interna- tional Student Organization. They helped exchange students feel unified with other foreign students and campus community. They held banquets, talent shows, sporting activities and pizza parties. Funds for the organization came from membership fees and a fund-raising din- ner. -continued iC Kappa Alpha Psi The purpose of Kappa Alpha Psi is to unite college men of culture, patriotism and honor.

Organizations 14 I Interesting habits Football and basketball weren ' t the on- ly sports on campus, there were also several athletic clubs. The M-Club was probably the most all-encompassing. Members included lettermen from all varsity sports. Jennifer Mertz said standards for earn- ing a letter differed in each sport. Once in M-Club, each athlete had to work two sporting events a year. This included sell- ing programs, hats and tickets or security at any game. Two representatives from each sport had to be present at all M-Club meetings. By having all reps present, the club earn- ed money for their sport, Mertz said. " There were two banquets a year. Seniors received a stadium blanket, " Mertz said. " You were in the club for life. The important part of the club was just Knee maneuver Coached by Cus Wegner, the Soccer Club com- peted in many games. Club member Khalld Aljunadi skillfully kicks the ball to a teammate. Legs For students who just wanted to increase muscle strength, the Weight Club offered the alternative on its club-owned equipment. -Photo by E. Barreia supporting each other in our athletic endeavors. " Sports not considered varsity or junior varsity, were called clubs. Two such sports were women ' s and men ' s soccer. Assistant captain for the women ' s team, Kristine Dunbar said the team was funded through the school, but not as much as varsity teams. " We held raffles to help pay for the cost of traveling, " Dunbar said. Kris Bathum said they also sold donuts and each member had to pay fees. The team practiced every day for over two hours, but they didn ' t win any games. Bathum attributed this to inex- perience. Dunbar said goals for the club were simple. " We just wanted to keep a team together until funds were available for us to go varsity. " The men ' s soccer club had similar goals. " We may have a chance to go var- sity, " said Bob Stadler, team member. " The team was good and they were very skilled. " During the fall, the team record was 4-6. They began training after Christmas break for the indoor soccer season in March. " We practiced weekends for three hours, then conditioned on Wednes- days, " Stradler said. To raise money for traveling and other expenses, the men held raffles. Northwest Weight Club was not of- ficially affiliated with the school either. They paid dues and bought their own equipment. " We had better equipment than the school, " member Greg Gilpin said. Cilpii anyooe weight! 1tie sepatai we ha said.

Organizations 143 Greek sponsored councils enact stricter policies for rush and organize Greek Week activities reek governing bodies " Go Greek and make it happen " was the recruitment tactic used by sororities and fraternities during rush each semester. Recruitment slogans were a way to keep new blood, ideas and membership numbers up within the Greek organiza- tions. The two organizations which stressed certain rules and guidelines were Inter- Fraternity Council (IFC) with Jim Wyant, sponsor, and Dan Milliard, president, and Panhellenic Council, guided by Cherine Heckman, sponsor, and Marita Wurtz, president. Seven fraternities and four sororities elected three members to represent them in council meetings. Both organizations met at least twice a month. They discuss- ed policies and ways to develop those policies. " IFC was the governing body of seven fraternities, " Wyant said. " The main goal was to streamline a dry rush policy that was written and implemented in Fall 1983. IFC developed a policy for viola- tions. " Greek councils were responsible for rush and making sure rules and guidelines were carried out by all Greek organizations who held membership with IFC or Panhellenic. " IFC is a beneficial liason group bet- ween the university and the fraternities, " Wyant said. As well as rush, IFC and Panhellenic also supervised and organized activities for Greek Week. Greek Week was a week of competitive events between the sororities and fraternities. They par- ticipated in athletic competitions as well as humorous contests. The goal of Greek Week was to pro- mote Greek unity. The week ended with an awards dinner and all-Greek party. Julie Tavernaro, Panhellenic member, said that Panhellenic reorganized and tried to get more involved with issues pertaining to sororities. Tavernaro said bylaws were also changed to give them a more important role as a university organization. " In the past, Panhellenic was not con- sidered important, " Tavernaro said. The council hoped that with bylaw revisions, they would be a more influential campus organization. Karen Davis, Panhellenic secretary said, " We put together rush and pushed Creek. Other than that, our main focus was to gain more respect as a university organization. In the past, Panhellenic was not respected. The sororities never made the organization important enough. Perhaps it was due to the adviser or just an unawareness of the importance of Panhellenic. " Panhellenic was responsible for stricter sorority rush rules. A girl going through rush had a required 2.25 GPA. The governing bodies of Greek organizations re-established rules and guidelines which organization members were expected to fulfill in order to main- tain Greek ethics. -Ann Whitlow Rush During formal rush, Dee Dee Carmichael and Leslye Thompson relate information about themselves.

" Undoubtedly, the most important aspect of the sorority was friendship, " said Margie Retter, Alpha Sigma Alpha vice president. " There was a sense of uni- ty within a sorority and if you had the op- portunity to live in Roberta Hall, you ex- perienced it more. " " Living in Roberta wasn ' t like living in a dorm, " Alpha Sharon Kackley said. " We were like a family and our doors were always open to visitors. " The 67-member sorority won the overall scholarship trophy and all-around Creek women ' s organization trophy dur- ing Creek Week. " We lost the scholarship trophy only once in the last 21 years, " Cenzlinger said. " We were proud of that. " Joining Alpha Sigma Alpha, Delta Zeta ' s 60 members also established com- mon bonds also within their sorority. " The most important aspect was get- ting to know people, feeling a bond and an opportunity to meet a wider variety of people through the Creek system, " Delta Hogging H Alpha Sigma Alpha members Joy Shaffer and 1 ionia Callahon jog by Mary Linn Performing Arts H lenter. -Photo by E.

Delta Zeta collected money for March of Dimes, held a Head Start Christmas party and were huggers for Special Olym- pics. " It was an exceptional year for Delta Zeta because we accomplished goals in rush and Homecoming, " Watson said. " During rush, we focused on positive aspects of the Creek system and what we had that was different from other sororities. Sisterhood was emphasized because we wanted pledges to know there was always someone there, but they were still treated as individuals. " . " During rush we took our quota of girls, " said Laurie Lehane, Delta Zeta president. " We were psyched fall semester because of rush and our com- eback in Homecoming. " Other Delta Zeta activities included Christmas informal, formal in Kansas City and a mystery date party. " The mystery date party was really in- teresting, " Lehane said. " Our room- mates set up dates for us and told us two hours beforehand where we had to be with our date. " At a state-wide Delta Zeta convention in Warrensburg, Delta Zeta won best chapter in Missouri, best pledge training sorority and most sisterly chapter. " Our sisterhood was really strong, " Lehane said. " There was always so- meone to talk to no matter what kind of mood you were in.

Greek life was not just one big party or imitation of National Lampoon ' s " Animal House. " Actually, conservative views about dry rush and hazing were held by the majority of Greek members. The seven social fraternities also demanded service, responsibility and unity within their organization. Although fraternities had to deal with the new dry rush, most seemed in favor of the new ruling. " I thought dry rush was better because . it was what we needed to go to, " said Jim Walker, Alpha Kappa Lambda president. " Instead of blinding rushees with alcohol, they got a chance to actually see what fraternities stood for. " Dry rush added to the quality of rush, said Wayne Cole, Tau Kappa Epsilon chaplain. " Dry rush was better because quality of rushes and potential members as a whole was better, " he said. " Rushees weren ' t at rush functions just to drink. They were there because they wanted to be part of the fraternity and were interested in what we had to offer as an organization. " However, Cole said dry rush turned some potential rushees off. " Unfor- tunately, they weren ' t exposed to the Greek system, " he said. " There was no doubt that alcohol was a drawing factor to rush sign up in the past. " Phi Sigma Epsilon member Marty McDermott thought this factor hurt the fraternity system in a way. " There were continued Phone home Tim Harms talks on the phone at the Delta Chi house. -Photo by S.

Baker Greeks 151 What ' s all the rush ? good and bad points about dry rush, " he said. " Dry rush hurt because not as many guys signed up as usual. " Hazing made national headlines in relation to fraternity pledgeships, but Walker did not think there was any threat to Northwest fraternities concerning the problem. " Hazing decreased, " he said. " There was a bill in the Senate against hazing. Violators could be held for criminal or civil libel. " Sigma Phi Epsilon ' s Dan Schroer said hazing was looked down upon by frater- nities. " We were non-hazing, " he said. " Lots of fraternities were changing their by-laws and abolishing hazing. After all, pledges made a fraternity stronger. " The trend was to change the image and move from hazing, said Rodney Wil- helm. Delta Sigma Phi member. " Delta Sigma Phi Nationals abolished hazing. We were a non-hazing fraternity. I didn ' t forsee any problems with hazing on cam- pus, " he said. However, Delta Chi President Sherman Drury said he was indifferent about the hazing issue. " Hazing became an issue, but mainly people were bothered by what they couldn ' t see, " he said. " We didn ' t haze. Pledgeship was just a way to get to know actives. It was like job train- ing. Pledgeship lasted eight weeks which enabled pledges and actives to interact before becoming full-fledged members. It was a responsibility and a big decision. " As for activities. Homecoming and ser- vice projects dominated the year ' s events. Many fraternities felt they excell- ed in community work. " I thought we were superior in com- munity work, " Walker said. " We were involved with little Buddy program. Headstart, Nodaway County Sheltered Workshop, Muscular Dystrophy Associa- tion Dance-a-thon and Maryville Parks and Recreation clean-up effort. " In addition, AKLs held a community and faculty dinner annually at their house. " Each fraternity member invited a faculty member whose class they en- joyed, " Walker said. " We also invited community members and sponsors from other fraternities. We got a lot of positive response. " TKEs also took an active role in com- munity projects. " One of our philan- thropy projects was a Christmas party for the Mount Alverno retarded children, " said Wayne Cole, TKE member. " We also raked leaves for elderly in the com- munity.

Through membership, the fraternity was able to become active in community events. The fraternity was also involved in the Big Brother organiza- tion. The Delta Chi 10 Kilometer Run was a fund raiser for charity. Although they also participated in com- munity projects. Phi Sigma Epsilon was set apart from other fraternities because of their continued Homecoming success. Their success included house decoration, float and overall Homecoming supremacy. " We had brotherhood, " McDermott said. " We were probably closer than other fraternities. Our pledgeship pro- gram brought members closer together.

" Not necessarily because we were the best athletes, but because of our brotherhood. " Sig Ep ' s contributed to the community in various ways. The fraternity went to nursing homes where they played games with residents for small prizes. The organization also sponsored a needy Maryville family. Besides helping the family, Sig Ep ' s donated to Maryville food pantry. The Maryville clean-up project was another function which the fraternity took part in.

" The Sig Tau ' s took part in the Maryville trash-a-thon for their community project. The Delta Sig ' s also took part in com- munity service. The fraternity was involv- ed in the Maryville community clean-up and in the fall, raked neighbors yards. Delta Sig Joel Brown said, " We ' ve tried to keep up good community relations. " The Delta Sig ' s were associated with members of Maryville Citizens for Com- munity Services. " The community projects were something we had to do, " Brown said. " We were part of the community.

Baker Greeks 155 Little sister programs promote strong unity between Greeks and independents amily ties Little sisters helped the women involv- ed, meet new fr iends and get involved with campus and community activities. They also helped their fraternities with rush. Of the seven fraternities on campus, all but one organization had a little sister program. The men of Phi Sigma Epsilon did not utilize the help of a little sister organization. " We never had a little sister program, " said Phi Sigma Epsilon member Randy Hoy. " They did help other fraternities with rushing, but we just didn ' t have them. Our objective was to keep close relations with the sororities, " Hoy said. On the other hand, fraternities who rushed with help from their little sister organization, were encouraged by the positive results. Tau Kappa Epsilon member Wayne Cole said little sisters benefited his frater- nity. " They helped with rush and other functions throughout the year, " he said. Belonging to a little sister organization gave members a sense of unity. The girls shared experiences in both a non-Creek and Greek environment. The input of ideas made a strong organization. The women involved with little sister organizations felt the most important part of being a member was the togetherness it brought. " There was always someone to talk to, " Trisha McCue, Chi Delphian, Reminisce Brenda Wittwer, Pam Gilpin and Ann Stoner thumb through a Golden Heart scrapbook. One responsibility of little sisters was to be a represen- tative for the fraternity. -Photo by M. Baker said. " It was just like a big family to me. " " Being a little sister was such a part of my life, it was a place to go - a kind of home here at school, " Kalley Filleean Sheryl Parriott said. For some, it was a way to get involved. " I probably wouldn ' t have been here if not for the Golden Hearts, " Mary Beth Klein said. " At first, I wasn ' t involved in anything and needed to meet people. Golden Hearts was a real asset, it helped me grow and gave me confidence in myself, " Klein said. Delta Sigma Phi Little Sister Jodi Larsen said, " It was the first group I got involved with. It got me out of my shell and led me to other things. " In the past, little sister organizations continued Planning Golden Heart ' s Denise Ackley and Nancy Kriz look over the itinerary for upcoming events.

Greeks 157 Family ties have been compared to sororities. One large distinction was that a little sister holds a special allegiance to one fraterni- ty. During rush and pledgeship, little sisters were morale builders and they helped to lighten the hard times. It seem- ed little sis ' were around to listen to a complaint of the down-and-out pledge. As well as the role of morale builders, little sis were an added extra to a party or a philanthropic project. For a male, it was sometimes refreshing to hear a female ' s view. Besides making new ties between members and helping with rush, little sisters helped with other projects. The Sigma Tau Gamma White Roses were involved in several activities. Member Maureen Doolan said their ac- tivities included an Easter egg hunt for community children, car wash and par- ties. " The money we made went to us, but we used it for the guys, " Doolan said. Kalley Filleeans helped the Alpha Kap- pa Lambda fraternity by sponsoring their annual Muscular Dystrophy Association ' s Dance-a-thon in the spring. Daughters of Diana helped TKEs with several projects. Among these were a dinner for Parent ' s Day and a Christmas dinner for mentally handicapped. The Sigma Phi Epsilon Golden Hearts focused on rush functions or getting together to socialize. " W e tried to make the first move when Note taking Kathy Baker, Chi Delphia member, prepares to take notes at a Delta Chi little sis meeting. -Photo by M. Baker there was a problem, " Mary Beth Klein said. " We tried to dig right in and get to the heart of it to promote unity between the Golden Hearts and fraternity. " Chi Delphians added a Big Brother, Big Sister program to their list of activities. With the Delta Chi ' s, they worked with community children, spending time with them and making friends. There were several requirements for becoming a little sister. The responsibilities that went with the title were often challenging and time- consuming for members. Most thought the benefits outweighed disadvantages. People tended to stereotype little sis, " Deb Parrish said. " They thought all we did was the clean up and dirty work for the fraternites, but we were a part of them. " Mila Carey said, " it wasn ' t a phony thing. We did all we could for the guys. Everyone was in it because they wanted to be.

The Madraliers Northwest Celebration, Chorale, Tower Choir, University Singers, Concert Band and Jazz Band made up the foundation com- bining the music department into one big family. When the split group of Madraliers Celebration performed as Madraliers, they dressed in attire from 1585. They performed a choreographed show con- sisting of singing madrigals and dancing. Madrigals consisted of the music of 1450 to 1600 in an unaccompanied vocal com- position for two or three voices in simple harmony. Performing at the Renaissance Festival in Bonner Springs, Kan. and hosting up to three Madrigal Feastes was the mainstay of the group. The Renaissance Festival was held every weekend in September and the first few weekends in October. Initiated in 1980, Northwest Celebra- tion was the flip side of Madraliers. During spring break, the group traveled to Florida, performing concerts en route. One of their first stops was St. Louis where they performed for the Parkway School district and then went on to Nashville. There they teamed up with former graduate Teri McPheeters, now a profes sional singer in Nashville. Since her departure four years ago, McPheeters has had 14 songs published. On their return, the group performed in Atlanta for the Northwest Alumni Association and also in Kansas City for the alumni dinner. " Celebration was a fun group to be in, " Mark Stevens said. " It was a lot of excitement and hard work. Everybody in the group was a hard worker. Celebra- tion was probably the hardest working group I had ever been in.

Celebtj fdest workinj I Singing up a storm was one way to Jescribe the University Chorale and the Tower Choir whenever they performed. The University Chorale performed cores ranging from popular tunes to very ;erious compositions. According to direc- or Byron Mitchell, he tried to give the tudents a variety of vocal literature. " A lot of the students who were in Ihorale were music majors. This was one equired ensemble for their degree, " Mit- :hell said. " There were a great number of ither students who were in there jecause they liked to sing. " The Chorale was opened to all students vith no audition required. It met only wice a week so students did not have to .pend a great deal of time if they were not music majors. Seventy-seven -nembers made up the biggest vocal jroup. Chorale did not go on tour like many of he other music groups. Chorale was able to perform with the Kansas City Symphony in December. The I performance officially opened the Mary .inn Performing Arts Center. Tower Choir consisted of 38 members 1 vho were chosen after auditions. Students wanting to be in Tower Choir vere usually outstanding singers who 1 vanted to be involved in a fine choral prganization, Mitchell said. He added a jreat number of the students were all- itate singers when they were in high ichool. An example was Jeff Lean. He was in- k ' olved in both Choir and Chorale. 1 really liked the selection of literature he (Mitchell) picked, " Lean said. " Tours were really fun and it was nice to perform or high school students, and perform a selection of literature they might not hear all the time. We performed Brahms and Bach, composers they didn ' t usually listen to, and it was nice to expose them to that kind of music. " " Chorale really improved " Mark Chorale Tower Choir Organizations 161 strumming Lead guitarist Greg Cesaman plays in the Univi sity )azz Ensemble.

" It had a lot of students in it that were not select students, but at the same time, it really had some nice sound. It was the enthusiasm of those students that kept Mitchell interested in teaching at the college level. " It was always my ambition when I was younger to teach at a university and have the instruction of voice and direction of choral en- sembles, " Mitchell said. " I enjoyed working with the college-aged singer because they can develope into quite a fine choral organization and develop into fine singers. " At one time, University Singers was an ensemble of women, but times have changed. Now, four males made up the group, revised as the Barbershop Quartet. They sang melodious tunes in four-part harmony. When not performing in the communi- ty or giving concerts, the foursome travel- ed with Celebration and Tower Choir on tour. " The purpose of tours was basically to help the high school teachers out, to show them what an elect group could do and what good music they could ac- complish, " Director P.B. Shultz said. " Hopefully they were an inspiration for high school kids. It was a good group. " The excitement of Barbershop Quartet kept baritone Mark Stevens interested. It was Steven ' s first time in the group. " Barbershop Quartet was my favorite, " Stevens said. " I looked forward to going to class. " Instrumental music groups also per- formed concerts during the year. The symphonic band performed music which reached to the extremities of pro- fessional symphonic bands nationwide. Sixty-eight members made up Sym- phonic Band. Half of those students were also in the wind ensemble, a select group of students with exceptional musical abilities. " The organization (wind ensemble) performed literature for varying sizes of numbers, " Al Sergei, director, said. " We used 35 players, but from that, we used 1 6 for one number. It was more of a one- on-a-part situation. The only doubling in the wind ensemble was clarinets. Other than that, everybody was like an in- dividual member. It was a totally different experience from a large band where there were people doubling in parts, " he said. There were many reasons why in- dividuals joined band, but the main reason was to perform music. " I was in Concert Band because I en- joyed the concerts, especially on tour, " Brent Camery said. " There were people I met in Concert Band that I wouldn ' t find anyplace else. " The concert band was not the only in- strumental group to offer students a blend of musical culture. The Jazz Band, under the direction of Sergei, played a variety of tunes from the easy, laid back sounds of Count Basie all the way to the fast-paced swing of Sammy Nestico. Jazz Ensemble had many talented players, although they were not all music majors. Half the band consisted of non- majors, yet those individuals had a chance to perform without spending the time a music major would. " I really liked being in Jazz Ensemble, " Greg Cesaman said. " I enjoyed playing the music. Jazz was always one of my favorite types of music. It was also good for my improvising practice. " " I liked the charts we did and the at- titude everybody had toward playing, " Dave DeCamp said. " Everybody had a really good attitude and worked with the director. The director really knew his stuff. I just enjoyed the group as a whole. " I like it better here, " DeCamp said. " I thought it was friendly here and there was less pressure. That enhanced playing when you were out there just to make music, have a good time and not worry about competition.

Christ ' s Way Inn did charity work for the community and abroad. The group provided housing for eight students dur- ing the school year. Christ ' s Way Inn also sponsored retreats with other religious organizations on campus. " It ' s an organization to help strengthen a person ' s faith, instead of having a typical college party, " President Diane Peterman said. Christ ' s Way also held Bible study ses- sions twice a week and visited a children ' s home. Another religious group with t he same basic moral values was the Newman Center, which catered to over 100 Catholic students. The center was named after Cardinal Newman, and for the past two years has sponsored an essay contest on the history of Cardinal Newman. Newman was funded by students who attended the center. The primary goal was to enhance student awareness of Christ. Dr. Charles Kovich, faculty spon- sor said, " I felt this was an important aspect of college life. " Newman also had a social program that sponsored different activities, such as piz- za parties and dances. " The way they had it set up was good, " said Maureen Mader. " They really encouraged students to get involved and stay with the church outside the home. " Father Tom Hawkins frequently counseled students suffering from col- lege pressures. Members also helped at the retirement homes. Another religious organization on cam- pus was the Baptist Student Union. " Bap- tist Student Union ' s were located on almost every campus in Missouri, " said Forrest Cornelius, director of the Union, and Northwest was no exception. Cornelius said proclaiming Jesus Christ on campus was one goal of the Baptist Student Union. Among proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Union enhanced community beliefs and ministered to the university community. " Our organization added a spiritual dimension to college life, " said Cornelius. The Union raised money to send members on trips during the summer and to visit other Unions and schools. " I real- ly enjoyed it, " President Bruce Bennett said. " It gave me a chance to take on leadership roles. " Baptist Student Union had about 50 ac- tive members. During February, the -continued iT- ,Y im 165 The united way Union sponsored singing Valentines. Some students volunteered their services to help at nursing homes in surrounding counties. " It gave me a chance to meet people with the same interests, " member Mark Hackett said. A different religious organization students participated in was the Wesley Center. The Wesley Center worked through the Methodist Church with 30 members. The activity students seemed to enjoy most was Mid-Week Worship. Members participated in Bible studies and afterwards gathered for a snack and to chat. " I really enjoyed Bible studies and learned a lot about my faith, " Gail Swaney said. " There was always somebody to talk to. " In February, the Center sponsored a Valentine ' s Day party. And every Sun- day, members held church services and gathered for recreation afterwards.

Nowatzke " It was a good place to socialize and make friends, " Beth Baier said. The center also did charity work for the community. Five students visited local nursing homes. " Religion was part of college life, " Swaney said. " It was a good place to land. " Another organization which provided religious beliefs was Liahona. Liahona, an organization for Latter Day Saints, had 13 members. Liahona, a word meaning " fin- ding a way through the wilderness, " was active on campus by holding skating par- ties regularly, as well as chili suppers and bake sales. " I liked working with students, " direc- tor Robert Franks said. " That was why I chose to work with Liahona. " Before Christmas break, Liahona went carolling on campus. " Liahona was for a group of people who had the same religious interest, " Greg Warnock said. " The people were a closely knit group who felt for each other. " Liahona worked at retirement homes and participated in volleyball nights. The Navigators also added a Christian atmosphere to campus. Members said Navigators was a religious group whose main focus was " Discipleship. " The group had 20 members who participated in weekly Bible study meetings. " It was training people to be better Christians, " member Roger Lockhart said. Navigators was an organization to help students become aware of Christ. During March, the group attended a two-state conference held in Pierre, Kan. " I thought Navigators was a good organization because it solved problems, instead of causing them, " Neville Wilson, director, said. Religious groups were available to students whether they joined to continue their beliefs or just participate through fellowship. -Terrence McCreight 166 Religious Community involvement was 2 key element in religious groups Wesley Center FRONT ROW: Gail Swaney, Dave Davis, Susan Winters, Marian Potter Ehlers, Don Ehlers, David Winters and Susan Foster, ROW 2: Kelli Schmepf, |im Madison, Sue Patrick, Beth Petersen.

Carrie Owen, who qualified for the 1983 nationals in the discus said, " The team improved a lot. Medford brought in a lot of freshmen and they should be strong in the future. Medford was a real good coach. She worked us hard, but it paid off in the long run. " A school record holder in four running events and Iowa cross country high school champion, Janssen said, " My per- sonal goals were mostly time related. I had certain time goals I liked to run. " " I liked the program at Northwest, " Janssen said. " I came to school mostly to run. It was a good time. Medford did a good job. She stressed consistency and doing well in the conference. " " We ended up fifth in the conference meet, " Medford said. " We had two na- tional qualifiers, Dixie Wescott in the javelin and Cindy Margis in triple jump. We didn ' t finish where we wanted to at conference. " Margis qualified for the nationals in tri- ple jump, " I performed badly at the na- tionals, " she said.

Not every Bearcat who performed at the NCAA Division II Nationals came back an All-American, but Robinson and his teammates, Mike Harris, Tom Lester and K.P. Nelson on the 1600-meter relay team did. They placed third in the nation with a time of 3:06.37. Head Coach Dick Flanagan said, " The time the 1600-meter relay team brought in at nationals normally would have won it, but it was an exceptionally tough race this year. " The Bearcats finished 27th in the nation out of 63 teams. Besides a school record in the 1600-meter relay, Robinson in the 400-meter dash in 47.1 and the 400-meter relay team of Alan McCrary, Robinson, Robert Lawrence and Harris set school records. McCrary, a returning national qualifier from 1983, also qualified in the 400-meter relay. " I felt I had an up and down year, " McCrary said. " One meet I did well and the next I didn ' t.

At the MIAA Outdoor Championship in Maryville, they finished third. One bright spot at the conference meet was the mile relay team which broke the five-year record at Neil track by over four seconds with a time of 3:16.27. While the outdoor season was disap- pointed with a third placeconference finish and bad weather conditions cancelling meets and hurting practices, the indoor season was successful. The Bearcat record in scoring meets was 25-1. The only scoring meet they didn ' t win was conference. Here they received second against Southeast Missouri. " A 25-1 indoor record is not too shab- by when you consider we didn ' t ever compete at home, " Flanagan said, " that would be phenomenal in any other sport. " " Winning the University of Nebraska- Omaha Invitational at Boy ' s Town for the fourth year in a row was one of the bigger meets for the team in the indoor season, " Flanagan said. " As a team, we struggl- ed a bit, " Robinson said. " The coaches ' goal was to have every guy who qualified for nationals come back an All-American. Flanagan was more than a coach, both on and off the field. He was known as Father Flanagan. He wanted us to be achievers. " - Ken Gammell .§. ' ■ •.

" Plus the lack of recruiting really hurt, " Stover said. Carlson believed the competition was tough. " At first we were down. We prac- ticed so hard, but the competition was really tough.

" The team was young and had a lot to learn, but they came along faster than I had expected, " Head Coach Gayla Eckoff said. " They had more potential than any team I have coached. They were a fine group to work with and they were fun. " The ' Kittens finished their season with a 24-14 record. They bounced back from a second place finish in the MIAA Round Robin Tournament to a first place finish in the MIAA Championship. Bearkittens swept four straight games in the seven school double elimination MIAA tournament in Warrensburg. Game three of the championship in- volved an unusual chain of events that began during the fifth inning against Southeast Missouri State (SEMO). A line shot hit Sherry Lewis in the head.

The Bearkit- tens won, receiving the championship and a bid to MIAA Regionals. The ' Kittens were led by two pitchers, Lewis and Shelly McClure. The two com- bined for 1 1 7 strikeouts and allowed only 57 runs in 260 innings. Offensively, the ' Kittens were led by outfielder Jennifer Mertz with a .310 bat- ting average.

They were Lewis, pitcher; Stephanie Storey, second baseman and Schultz, outfielder. Shortstop Karen Hopwell made second team. Kathy Kelsey and Julie Gloor received honorable mention. " The strength of our team was our youth and self-discipline, " Eckhoff said. " As a team, our speed was better than average. Their main strength was their love of Softball. They kept themselves in shape all year and had a good time. " " We began as an inexperienced team, " Janet Sheiber said.

Bar- rera 178 Baseball 1 Battered by the weather and a tough schedule the baseball team went Against the elements The Bearcat baseball team faced some tough competition in the early part of the season, not just from the opposing teams, but from Mother Nature. In his third season as head coach of the Bearcats, Jim Johnson had hoped to add another conference title to the two his team won in his first two years. The ' Cats came close, but finished second, losing to the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) in the championship, 4-2. It was the second home game the Bearcat ' s had lost since 1982, the first loss coming in the first game of the tourney. The Bearcat ' s fell in the first game of the tournament 1 -0 to Southeast Missouri State (SEMO). SEMO won the game in the ninth inning with a home run. On the third day of the tournament. Northwest beat Warrensburg 10-7 in 10 innings. In their third game, they edged SEMO 8-7 in 10 innings. In the championship, UMSL prevailed 4-2 by scoring three unearned runs. The Bearcats finished the season with a 15-16 record. " It ' s a year we want to put behind us, " Johnson said. " It was a dreary day the whole summer. If I had to bet, I would have bet we would win conference. It was a shock. When we didn ' t play 14 home games because of weather, that hampered our practice. We never reach- ed our peak. " It was worse for a Division II school, " Johnson said. " The bigger schools had the facilities to deal with it better.

More teams could come here to play. " Outfielder and third baseman Jaden Davison said, " The season started out pretty rough. We were 2-6 after the southern trip. Our team goal was to win the conference again, go to the Mid- Western Regional and then go to the na- tionals. " " The coaches did a good job with the team, " Davison said. " They prepared us well and had us playing good ball as a team. We played good baseball against tough competition and it was fun. " Tough competition was part of Johnson ' s coaching philosophy. The Bearcats had been the best team in the MIAA Conference the last two years. although their overall record might not have indicated it. Since Johnson began his career at Northwest, the Bearcats averaged 13 games against Division I schools. " No one individual had a banner year, " Johnson said. " Brian Jennings made the All-Midwest Team. He hit .373. Jerry Mikusa hit .337, Davison hit .347 and Joe Miller hit .337. " Assistant Coach Todd Maguire said, " The big surprise player of the season was our catcher, Mikusa. " The Bearcat ' s have several players in the pros. Todd Frowirth, a member of the 1984 team, was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies, and is with one of their minor league teams. He attended an instructional league in Clearwater, Fla., for the most promising minor league players. Chuck Lynn, Bearcats 1983 team, is with Baltimore Orioles and is playing in the minors. Tom Funk, another former player is playing in the minors for the Houston Astros. " Our baseball team could play with any team in the country, " Johnson said. " All we needed were good weather days to practice and refine our skills. Our schedule was mostly against Division I schools. They had much bigger budgets and could tarp their fields or they had fields with artificial turf. They could still play 30-40 games in bad weather years while we might just get in 20. The more you play, the better you become. " -Ken Gammell Safe A Bearcat slides safely into third as Central Missouri ' s third basemen tries for the tag. Baseball 179 Inexperience didn ' t hamper their seasons. The teams found themselves Back in stride Cross country teams received national exposure, as the Bearcats advanced to national competition and the Bearkittens received national ranking during the season. The men ' s and women ' s teams placed second and third, respectively, in the MIAA championships. Both teams travel- ed to the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Regional in Edwardsville, III. The ' Kittens finished sixth while the ' Cats advanced to nationals. " We surprised a lot of supposedly bet- ter teams, " Chris Wiggs said. " We were a pretty close team and we worked hard to go to nationals. " The ' Cats traveled to Clinton, Miss., for the NCAA Division II championships. The team received 16th place in national competition. " I think we had a fairly good meet, " Bearcat Coach Richard Alsup said. " We did have some outside distractions and two of our top three runners were runn- ing injured. But we gained a lot of ex- perience, and for a young team we were quite impressive.

" We ran five freshmen and that was way over the number of freshmen for any of the other teams. " Other team members agreed that youth and inexperience did have some affect on the season. " Overall, I was really happy with the season, " team member Brad Ortmeier said. " We had a lot of inexperience at na- tionals. We were a little in awe of such a big meet, especially the freshmen. " The Bearkittens were also a young team. The cross country team was com- posed of six freshmen and four sophomores. " We thought we would suffer from youth and inexperience, " Bearkitten Coach Pam Medford said. " But for a young team, they did well. " The ' Kittens worked hard to make up for their inexperience. " Our team stuck together, " Bearkitten Tracy Hardison said. " We really wanted to make the team good. There was a real unity. " Both teams ended with winning records. The men finished their season with 79 wins and 23 loses. The women finished with 36 wins and 12 losses. " The reason we did so well was everyone had such a good attitude toward other members as well as toward practices, " Bearkitten team member Dee Dee McCulloch said. Attitudes toward the challenging prac- tices were similar for the men ' s team. Practices were tough, but necessary. " Practices were tough, but only if an athlete wasn ' t in top shape, " Alsup said. " We ran four miles in the morning and 10 or 11 miles in the afternoon. " The cross country teams gained both experience and national exposure for a successful season. -Stacey Porterfield Men ' s cross country.

" We started out strong and stayed con- sistent throughout the season, " Coach Suzie Homan said. " We were plagued with three major injuries, but that just put added pressure on the girls to work harder together. " The injury list began in pre-season play when Sherri Miller injured her ankle. Then as the season began, Angle Oswald hurt her ankle as well. " It was ironic, " Homan said. " They were both setters, the ' quarterbacks ' of the team and very hard to replace. " Jill Tallman suffered a serious knee in- jury in the semi-final match against McKendree College during the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMStL) Invitational. Tallman tore ligaments away from the bone and required reconstructive surgery on her knee. She also suffered minor car- tilage damage. Her injuries put her on the sideline for the rest of the season. " It was kind of disappointing not to be able to finish the season. The doctor said it would take at least one year for the in- jury to heal. I hope I can play some next year, but the doctor said not to count on it, " Tallman said. Tallman was a leading blocker and passer. " Losing Jill hurt a lot, " Homan said. " She was a good practice player and worked hard all the time.

" Although Tallman ' s injury presented bad news to the team, there was plenty of good news in the success of several other players. The only senior and captain was Mary Beth Bishop. " As a player she was outstanding, " Homan said. " She had the most experience and was the most recognized player. " Bishop broke several records in the kill category (untouched spikes) with a career high of 1,299, season high of 569 and match high of 28. In digs (balls saved) she held a career high of 625, season high of 273 and match high of 14. Bishop wasn ' t the only player to have a record-breaking year, Kelly Greenlee held the record in service aces, a career high of 226, season high of 114 and match high of nine. Miller held the record in assists with a career high of 1 ,485, season high of 884 and match high of 37. The goals of the team according to Homan were to beat University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO), Central Missouri State-Warrensburg (CMSU) and Missouri Western and to finish in the top three of every tournament they entered. The ' Kittens did just that. They won first place in the Bearkitten Invitational, the Missouri Western Invitational, the MIAA Round Robin Tournament and the UMStL Invitational. The ' Kittens also finished second in the MIAA tournament held in Lamkin Gym. They were defeated by CMSU. Winning games wasn ' t the only thing the ' Kittens did. They also won many awards. Bishop was awarded most valuable player in the conference as well as most valuable in the UNO tournament and all-tournament team in the Bearkit- ten Invitational. Greenlee and Miller received first team all conference. Tallman, despite her injury, received se- cond team all conference and was nam- ed to the all tournament team at the Bearkitten Invitational. Oswald received honorable mention. Despite injuries, the team managed to finish up with a winning season and four individual conference honors. " Shari Harney -Stacey Porterfield Volleyball.

Volleyball 183 ' Cats clinch conference, national ranldng and trip to the play-offs to become Best of the rest Teamwork was the key to unlocking the most successful season in the history of Bearcat football. The football team had one goal at the beginning of the season and that was to win the conference title, Head Coach Vern Thomsen said. However, the Bear- cats played above all expectations. They won the school ' s first conference title since 1979 and were ranked fifth in the nation when they traveled to Omaha for a first-time appearance in the NCAA Divi- sion II playoffs. The ' Cats were 10-0 after they wrapped up the 1 3th conference title in Northwest history. The season started with domina- tion as the Bearcats racked up 73 points and allowed their opponents none at the end of the first two games. " We felt if we could beat Central Arkansas, we had the ability to win con- ference, " Thomsen said.

" The Bearcats were 5-0 on the year after cruising past Lincoln University 34-19, and were ready for, what many people considered, the most exciting game in the history of Northwest football against Central Missouri State (CMSU) at War- rensburg. CMSU returned the opening kick-off 99 yards for a touchdown. The ' Cats came back on a thr ee-yard touchdown run by Marcus Chester and an extra point kicked by Pat Johnson. The game seemed to take a swing each time the other team had the ball, as both offenses took turns scoring. In the fourth quarter with time running down, CMSU led 34-32. The Bearcats had a final drive in the closing seconds with the ball on the 20-yard line of the Mules. Johnson attempted a field goal and missed. However, CMSU was called for a penalty, and with one second left, Johnson made his second chance suc- -continued 184 Football Hard hit Defensive back Mike Rivers tackles h s University of Nebraska-Omaha opponent during tine quarterfinal round of the NCAA Division II play-offs.

Barrera 186 Football Best of the rest cessful. The Bearcats went home with a 35-34 win. " The three key games during the season were Central Arkansas, Central Oklahoma, who were both nationally ranked, and CMSU, " Thomsen said. " Beating teams of that caliber made us deserving of a national ranking. " On this nationally-ranked team, there were players who were recognized for their achievement by the MIAA and who also found their names in the ' Cat record books. Steve Savard was twice named MIAA Player of the Week in the conference. However, the team effort was more im- portant to him. " Unity and experience made this season, " Savard said. " We all played together as one team. Our defense was strong and we showed a lot of character. It was 1 1 guys who played together and believed in each other. " " You can ' t compare this year ' s team to any of the past few years, " said quarter- back Brian Quinn, who set records in total offense, completions, passing yards and touchdowns passing. " This year ' s team was hungry and we knew we were winners from the first day of the season, " Quinn said. " Coach Thomsen turned our program around. We owe a lot to him. He had a unique relationship with his players. Some teams depend on a few players, but we depended on everybody. " Since coming to Northwest, Thomsen turned a losing program into a con- ference championship team and NCAA playoff qualifier. Several things went into the winning recipe. " For one thing, we recruited good athletes, " Thomsen said. " Our players were a lot stronger due to a good weight training and conditioning program, and we asked more of our athletes. It took all 60 players and nine coaches working together to have the season we did. We couldn ' t have done it without everyone. " Personal satisfaction was a reward for all the hard work, in addition to the play- offs and national ranking. " I ' ve been on a lot of good teams, but this was the happiest year I ever had, " Brad Sullivan said. " Everyone thought we were nobody at the beginning of the season, but we just went out week after week and beat them. " Team unity and sacrifice were also shown at the quarterback position, where the most evenly matched battle for a starting position took place. In the early part of the season, Mark Thomsen receiv- ed the nod. Brian Quinn came in later in the season after Thomsen was injured. " As long as we were winning, it was fine, " Mark Thomsen said. " I couldn ' t complain about winning conference at 10-0 and going to the playoffs. Sometimes the defense pulled us through, other times it was the offense. As long as we won, it didn ' t matter who was quarterback, " Thomsen said. " The situation worked out well, " Quinn said. " Coming off the bench, it was my job to be ready. I was in there enough to help us win. " In the first round of the playoffs, the ' Cats faced the University of Nebraska- Omaha, ranked second in the nation. The game was closer than the final score of 28-15 indicated. The ' Cats were plagued by turnovers, some in key situa- tions, that could have meant the dif- ference in the final score. " Our defense may have played their best game all year. Offensively, we also played well, but the turnovers killed us, " Thomsen said. " We beat ourselves with turnovers, " Steve Hansley said. He set receiving records with 1,343 yards on 67 catches and 12 touchdowns on the year. " We had over 500 yards total offense and were inside their five-yard line three times but came up empty. I wish the season would have ended on a better note. " While the play-off loss and a loss to the University of Northern Iowa, in the last regular season game, were dissapoint- ments, the season was still one to be remembered. The Bearcats surprised many people by winning conference and gaining a national ranking. " We went into the season wanting to win conference, " Thomsen said. " We reached that goal. The play-offs and na- tional ranking were a plus. " " It was a fantastic year. This club went down as the best ever so far at Nor- thwest. The team deserved that, " Thomsen said. -Ken Cammell Stop him Bearcat defensive men Mike Rivers, John Malcuitt, . Dave Donaldson and John Kohl stop a Southeast drive.

After winning the first game over Lewis University 81-63, the ' Kittens fell prey to University of Dayton 97-69, ending a Cinderella story. The team finished with, an overall 25-5 record. Playing in regionals was no fluke for the Kittens and they wanted to prove it. iThey qualified for first round of the MIAA iPost-Season Tournament, losing to Southeast Missouri State 66-63. This gave the ' Kittens a 18-10 overall record, 9-3 conference-good for second place. With the loss of Kloewer and Olson to graduation, many people thought the ' Kittens would not have a successful year. However, the ' Kittens surprised people. " I was pleased with the season, " Coach Wayne Winstead said. " With all the new faces we had and having to put the team together and develop our tim- ing, I feel they did very well. " " Many people didn ' t really expect us to be in post-season play or second in the conference, " Winstead said.

Senior Maria Sapp accomplished many scoring goals. Sapp placed third on the all-time scor- ing list with 1,445 points and third in steals with 127. Sapp finished as the top scorer for the ' Kittens tallying 468 points. In field goal shooting she was 188-377 for .499 percentage and 92-122 from the charity stripe for an .754 percentage. She also led in rebounds with 222. Besides Sapp, Kim Scamman had a fine season. She finished second in scoring with 435 points, hitting 187-347 in field goals and 61-78 in free throws. Scamman had 155 assists, almost double anybody else on the team. Holly Benton and Beth Thater also had good seasons as they finished thi rd and fourth respectfully in scoring. Benton totaled 334 points and Thater had 290. These athletes may have had better statistics than the rest of their teammates, but it was a combined effort that made the team successful and the ' Kittens displayed teamwork, especially from the ranks of the bench. " The women that did not play much, the players on the bench, gave us sup- port, " Winstead said. ' I felt they did a good job. You had to be a special kind of person to sit on the bench and still be a good supporter and contributer to the team and we had many young ladies with character that were able to do it. " Sapp and Thater were the only graduating team members. Both had good careers at Northwest . " The season went pretty good, " Sapp said. " We did better than everybody ex- pected us to. We really came on the last five games of the season and that ' s what we needed to do. " " At the beginning of the season, things were a little slow for us, " Thater said. " We didn ' t realize our abilities but we got the momentum ' going and we looked better. " We really wanted to win and had more desire to win. In our last five or six games, it was a rally between us and we came out on the bottom. Our season went well and I am proud of the way it ended. " jim Burroughs Women ' s Basketball.

For the second time in school history, a team made it to the NCAA Division 11 Regionals 32-team tournament. However, the ' Cats lost to Jacksonville State Al., 78-75 and Colum- bus College Ga. 65-63. The team finished with a final record of 24-7. The beginning of the 1985 season look- ed to be as promising as the season before. The Bearcats won 10 of their first 12 games involving non-conference op- ponents. It was the fifth consecutive year ' Cats had won their own tournament. They defeated Lindenwood College 93-42 and Marymount College 86-76. Once the ' Cats got into games involv- ing the MIAA, they went on a roller coaster ride. They only managed a 4-8 record with home wins over Southeast, Northeast, Rolla and University of Missouri-St. Louis. Winning on the road in the MIAA was tough on the ' Cats as they lost each venture out. The ' Cats finished fifth overall in conference.

According to Coach Lionel Sinn, it was a rebuilding year for the ' Cats. They had four experienced members returning and brought in about 10 more players. Although the season was not what was expected, the team did have their moments. When the first ranking of Divi- sion II polls came out. Bearcats were se- cond in the nation. That was the highest ranking any men ' s team had ever receiv- ed. As far as individual performances, Joe Hurst had an outstanding year. In a game at Southeast, Hurst scored his 1,000th point, becoming only the fifth player in Bearcat history to do so. Hurst was selected to the MIAA All-Conference First Team for the second consecutive year. Hurst led the team in scoring with 51 1 points, rebounding (164), blocked shots (38) and steals (52). Not only di d Hurst have a good season, but Tom Bildner did as well. Bildner played in 19 of 27 games, finished the team ' s second-leading scorer with 312 points. He finished behind Hurst in re- bounding with 123. He made Second Team All-MIAA. " We had a lot of problems this year, but we learned a lot, " Hurst said.

Besides adjusting to a new coach, the team had to overcome injuries and lack of experience. However, they didn ' t let that work against them. One injury hurt the entire team, Wayne Love, 177 pound class. Love was runner up last year at nationals, but in- jured his shoulder early forcing him to miss the rest of the season. " 1 injured my shoulder joint right before Christmas break so the coach red- shirted me, " Love said. " I wasn ' t too disappointed because I wanted to take a semester break. Wrestling 14 years, I never had a chance to take a break from it and my injury gave me a chance to get my head off wrestling and concentrate on schoolwork. " The injury was a misfortune for the team. Love came off a banner season with a 37-9 record, MIAA championship In his weight class and All-American at the national tournament. Inexperience also hurt the team. With only four seniors, the squad mostly con- sisted of freshmen.

" " Next year we could take regionals if we performed right, " Love said. " The freshmen had the chance to grow. With three-fourths of the team freshmen, it was good experience for them. " Reece set goals for the squad at the beginning of the season which included the squad doing well at MIAA conference meet, regionals and nationals. If any wrestler made it that far. His goals were met to some extent. The team didn ' t waste any time in meeting the first goal. The wrestlers won MIAA conference for the second con- secutive year. Five Bearcat wrestlers, Mike Brown (118), Bill O ' Connor (134), Craig Schwienebart (150), Bill Eaton (167) and Chuck Christensen (177), won their respective weight classes. For Brown, Schwienebart and Eaton, winning meant capturing their second consecutive con- ference title. Pretzel Mike Hemann holds his opponent in check.

Schwienebart, Brown and O ' Connor won their weight division and advanced to the national tournament in Dayton, Ohio. At regionals. Brown secured his spot to nationals by capturing second automatic bid. Schwienebart and O ' Connor finish- ed third and earned wild cards berths. The top two finishers in each weight class and four wild cards advance to nationals from regionals. Despite three wrestlers qualifying for nationals, the team compiled only a 4-8 record with wins over Buena Vista, Southwest Missouri State, Northeast Missouri State and University of Missouri- Rolla. One bright spot for the team was win- ning Simpson Invitational. The ' Cats won by not placing an individual champion in his weight class. " I got off to a bad start early in the year when I was cutting weight, " Schwien- ebart said. " After Christmas break, I decided to move up a weight class, i felt stronger and healthier and ended up do- ing better. The team did better after break also. " " Getting a new coach affected us, " Brown said. " We had new pre-season training and some money problems because they were over budget last year, so we paid for it this year. But, we pulled through. " " We were up against some stiff com- petition, " Brown said. " Teamwise, the year went well. " -Jim Burroughs Wrestling 193 Promising program What was the largest fall sporting event on campus? A football or basketball game? No, guess again. It was intramurals. Intramurals had about 5,000 par- ticipants, both men and women. Par- ticipants had a choice of 22 different sports in three different areas. The sports included battle of the beef, turkey trot, a new co-ed game pillow polo, as well as football, Softball and basketball. The three different areas were fraternities, in- dependents and a women ' s division. The only necessary guideline for enter- ing a team was to fill out a proper entry blank and turn it in on scheduled deadlines. Bob Lade was the director of the in- tramurals program with the help of work- study students. Coach Lade defined the program as " having something for everyone. " " We tried to design a program that would fit everyone ' s needs, " Lade said. " 1 felt our program was a social and physical outlet for students. " " Intramurals were important to a stu- dent because it was something to do with their leisure time, " Lade said.

" Intramurals were especially good for transfer students and those who had given up a couple years ' eligibility for varsity athletics. " The winners in each category received T-shirts. The events were assisted by undergraduate and graduate students. Assistants helped in organization, super- vision, officiating and handling all pro- blems during competition. " Intramurals were a good way for peo- ple not participating in varsity sports to play and have fun. It was a chance to be athletic, " Tammy Norris said. " It was good competition for everyone on their own level, " Darrell Geib said. The intramurals program gave students time away from studies and everyday pressures of college life. A trophy was awarded to the winning team and then placed in Lamkin Gym. " I liked the opportunity to meet new people through intramurals, " Glenda Newberry said. Intramurals also gave students the chance to break free from winter blues and get some activity while being cooped up by snowstorms and icy winds. " Intramurals gave everybody something to do and a way to blow off steam, " Fred Dodson said. " They gave you a chance to compete in sports and get away from the normal routine of studying, " Donna Herbers said. -Shelly Crowley ;» Up for two Many students participate in intramural basket- ball.

Sef- k established herself as the best woman racquet- ill player. -Photo by S. Trunkhill What 5 the racquet? When it came down to the nit and gritty in women ' s racquetball, there was one name that stood out above the rest. Teri Sefcik established herself as the best women racquetball player on campus and had the credentials to prove it. In the three years she has played racquetball, Sefcik has accomplished a lot. She won five tournaments outside the area, a winner in the intramural single ' s and double ' s tournaments on campus and won a double ' s tourna- ment sponsored by ROTC. Sefcik teamed with Lea Peitron to win the women ' s intramural doubles and with Dr. Jim Smeltzer to win the ROTC dou- ble ' s tournament. Before getting involved in racquet- ball, Sefcik was an avid tennis player. Her roommate invited Sefcik to play, and since tennis was relatively similiar, Sefcik found no trouble in adapting. Then she met Smeltzer, an avid rac- quetball player, and the two began practicing and competing against each other. Sefcik tried to practice everyday if her schedule permitted. If not, she played at least three or four times a week for one or two hours. One of her biggest accomplishments was competing in a three-day tourna- ment in Omaha. Although she placed third, it was a gratifying experience. " Racquetball was a sport I could play all year round, " Sefcik said. " It was a seasonal sport that kept me in shape and was fun.

" wehai season season With school spirit as their main goal, cheerleaders led the way with Shouts of joy Carefully and with precision, the last cheerleader climbed to the top of the pyramid for the climax of the cheer. After the applause in Lamkin gymnasium, she dismounted by somersaulting into the cradled arms of her partner and the squad ran off the floor. It was the finale of a typical routine done by the Bearcat var- sity cheerleading squad. " We definitely had to be athletes to be cheerleaders, " Co-captain Rhonda Hauptman said. " People didn ' t realize how much work went into cheer- leading. " Cheerleaders practiced for two hours, three times a week. They had to attend every game both in the football and basketball seasons. " We got to travel more during football because there were more away games, " Hauptman said. " We cheered two games a night twice a week in basketball, " Hauptman said. " I didn ' t think we practiced as hard as we could, " Co-captain Bruce Lackey said. " We had some people quit because we had to travel more in football and the season was longer and during basketball season we tried to cheer two games every time. People just got burned out. " Part of the responsibility of cheerleading was making banners to pro- mote school and community interest and spirit. They also performed routines for area high schools to help recruit. " We had one routine we worked a lot on, " Hauptman said. " We performed for high schools to recruit. That took a lot of time and work. " The hard work paid off for the cheer- leaders. The green and white represen- tatives proudly placed 21st in the Na- tional Cheerleading Association competi- tion held in Dallas. " We qualified through a video tape of double stunts and pyramids which we performed, " Lackey said. " Although we placed 21 st, or first alter- nate, at the Cheerleading Nationals, we were the only Division II school entered, " Jeff Miller said. " We put our heart into it and a lot of dedication went into the routine. " The cheerleaders attended a summer camp at Southern Methodist Univesity in Dallas. " We placed in the top five from 80 squads, " Hauptman said. " Again, we were the only small school. " " Going to Dallas to compete was the most fun, " Brenda Baker said. " We had to work hard, but that was when we got closer and where we learned the most. " Bobby Bearcat helped the cheer- leading squad. The Northwest mascot was easily recognized as he carried the spirit stick and flag at the games. " We had some trouble with spirit at the basketball games, " Hauptman said. " Even though the teams did well, some games we couldn ' t get people to come and cheer with us. Although there were some problems, the season went pretty well. " " I really tried to do my best this year, " Linda Carnes said. " It was the last year with my partner because he wouldn ' t be back next year. " " The most exciting part of the season was the football game at Warrensburg when we won against Central Missouri State University by one point in the final seconds, " Stacey Griggs said. " We had a great time throughout the football and basketball seasons, " Miller said. " The whole squad was great. " " Maryann McWilliams Cheerleaders. FRONT ROW: Dave Carsten.

Barrera Organizations Steppers, flag corps and bands perform regularly to provide crowds with A break in the action Five, six, seven, eight. ..right, left, right, left. Coordination, memorization, dedication and pride were the main in- gredients to a successful Marching Band season. The Marching Band was comprised of students from a variety of majors and in- terests. The ensemble provided halftime entertainment for games both at home as well as out-of-town. The band was a con- glomeration of 70 musicians. The auxiliary groups included feature twirler Lori McLemore, Flag Corps and Steppers. The Flag Corps, a 16-member group, were led by Co-Captains Lisa Siemsen and Julie Hollman. The squad was supervised by Ernest Woodruff, assis- tant band director. The 12 Steppers were led by Co- Captains Julie Johnson and Kelly Drake. Drum major keeping the band in tempo was Jeff Lean. Band members and auxiliaries practic- ed one hour daily using drill charts to find field positions. The positions formed various geometric shapes. Although the band was relatively small, Al Sergei, director, said the number of returning band students was larger than the number of incoming freshmen students. The increase in upper classmen made it easier to get the show format underway. Scholarships were available to students who stayed with the marching program. Three-year members were awarded a $50 scholarship while four-year members were awarded a $75 scholarship and a gift commemorating their dedication and efforts to the band. Auxilary units were chosen each spring semester. Captains were chosen by Sergei and Woodruff before group tryouts. Participants were asked to per- form an original choreographed routine. Co-captains then chose a squad based on skills and execution of a pre- choreographed routine. " It was a challenge, to teach 14 girls a routine, but it was worthwhile when we watched video playbacks, " Siemsen said. " The corps put a lot of work and time to make us look uniform. Flag Corps added sparkle and variety to the halftime perfor- mances. The auxiliaries complemented the overall effect of the band. " As well as halftime performances dur- ing the football season, McLemore and the Steppers performed at home basket- ball games. The Pep Band and the two auxiliary units performed last spring at Kemper Arena during halftime for the Kansas City Kings basketball team. The Marching Band performed at halftime in Warrensburg. " It rained all day, " Steppers member Jane Searcy said. " By the time the band performed, the field was pure mud. The Steppers had to kneel down and roll over. We were covered with mud by the time the routine ended. But all in all, it was a lot of fun performing at an away game and especially cheering the team to victory. " The band went to the University of Northern Iowa and University of Nebraska-Omaha as a pep band to sup- port the team. " The football coach said we were a big addition to the game, " Pep Band member Shari Buehler said. " The athletic department paid for the Pep Band ' s transportation, food and lodging when we traveled to Nebraska and Iowa games. " The band enjoyed performing on behalf of the football team. " It was fun to get crazy with the rest of the band people and have a good time, " Buehler said. " The last two marching seasons were the first time in seven years the band has traveled, " Sergei said. And, although the Marching Band traveled to out-of-town games, they were most proud of their invitation to perform halftime at the Kansas City Chiefs football game. Appearing on national television gave the band wide recognition. Flag Corps member Bridgitte DeLong said, " It was a lot different marching on a professional field. Hash marks, (football placement markings) which we guided off of were located differently on a pro- fessional field. We had to re-learn posi- tions and not rely on hash marks for placement. It was a challenging ex- perience. " A group of individuals blended together to present their talents as the an- nouncer ' s words echoed through the stadium, " And now we introduce the pride of Northwest: the Northwest Missouri State University Bearcat Mar- ching Band!

Cries of jubilation. Taste of success. A rollercoaster of emotions was felt May 28 to Aug. 12 in Los Angeles where the 1984 Summer Olympics transpired. Before the Olympics even began there was an air of disappointment when the Soviet Union decided to pull out of the games just two months before their beginn- ing. Within days, six Soviet allies followed suit and 16 nations were absent from the occa- sion. " I didn ' t think that many countries would follow Russia, " Sharon Wright said. " I think everyone knew that Russia wouldn ' t come over. " Anxiety came when ath- letes, as well as ticket holders, wondered if there would even be any games. The United States and the 23rd Olympiad went on with- out the Soviet Union. They, in turn, held " Friendship " games. America became familiar with faces of people such as swimmer Tracy Caulkins, run- ners Carl Lewis and Mary Decker, gymnasts Peter Vid- mar, Bart Conners and James Hartung and the new Olym- pic sweetheart, Mary Lou Ret- ton. Cries of jubilation were heard whenever a favorite won gold. " I cheered Mary Decker on, " Wright said. " I would love to be able to run like her. " Winning the gold was very popular with the American team. The swim team started the pace winning 20 of 29 gold medals. Not only did they bring home the gold, they broke seven American records and 1 1 world records. Record breakers didn ' t stop there. Both men and women ' s gymnastic teams got a medal. A first was also made by the American men cyclist team. The men received four gold, two silver and a bronze before entering the final race, winn- ing another gold. Americans also dominated the boxing competition. They won 11 medals including nine gold, one silver and a bronze. The Americans attained a record amount of 83 gold medals in 15 days of competi- tion. There were 61 silver and 30 bronze also given to American athletes, ending the games with 174 medals.

" I liked the final celebra- tion, " Cheri Scheloski said. " It was neat how they showed the different places with the torches lit. It was really pretty. " " I liked watching the gym- nastic teams, " Tammy Har- ryman said. " I also liked wat- ching the women ' s basketball team. I knew some of the players, but they didn ' t show enough of the games being played. " " I took two weeks off from work just to watch the Olym- pics on TV, " David Watkins said. " I really wished I could have been there. I thought track and field was the best. " As the 1984 Olympics came to a close, so did the air of disappointment, feeling of anxiety and cries of jubilation. What will live on is that taste of success. Success for more than the many outstanding athletes, city of Los Angeles and the record breaking American teams. This success will also remain with everyone who helped main- tain the tradition of gold in the 23rd Olympic Games.

The intramural referees were students who attended officiating clinics. -Photo by E. Barrera Cheers and jeers There were players, coaches, scorekeepers even an audience, but someone was missing. Some called them zebras, others called them refs. They really were officials. Their job was to officiate. Whether it was football, basketball, soft- ball or intramural games, the job description remained the same. An official was the one to administer rules of a game or sport. Officials were sometimes the most hated people in a sport. " It wasn ' t us personally the crowd hated, " Bob Lade said. " They needed someone to blame for other ' s mistakes. Of- ficials were the obvious target. " Lade was the director for in- tramurals, as well as football coach. " I have officiated for eight years and the thing I have hated most was the ignorance of some fans and coaches, " Lade said. " They thought they knew the rules but they really didn ' t, especially the fans. " Dr. Jim Herauf officiated for 28 years and didn ' t hate a thing about it. " I tuned out the audience, their reactions didn ' t bother me, " Herauf said. " If it did, I would have been in trouble. " Why would someone have wanted to take all this abuse? " A majority of the time of- ficiating was fun, " Lade said. " The comradeship developed with another official was really interesting. We had fun before, during and after the games. " " It kept me active and in shape, " Herauf said. How to become an official depended on the sport. Many high school and col- lege sports only required a written test and attendance at one meeting a year. The dif- ficulty came in staying an of- ficial. " The first year games were easy to get, " Lade said. " The trick was to be good and con- tinue to get games. Bad of- ficials had a difficult time ac- quiring games. " At the beginning of the year, intramural official candidates signed up to attend clinics. " It was a good idea to start with intramurals first, " Brian Bowers said. " That way you knew if you wanted to do more officiating in the future. " Pat Ryan was a newcomer to officiating. " I got involved through the intramural office because of work study, " Ryan said. " I ' m going to be a coach someday, so officiating helped me better understand sports. " Officials were human too. Even with the players, coaches, scorekeepers and audience, officials were need- ed to keep the game under control. Even if they became the scapegoats for angry fans and coaches. -Shari Harney 204 Officials Incomplete Referees are in high demand for in- tramural sports. Brian Bowers fullfilled this position as he officiates a flag football game. -Photo by E. Barrera Official role call The officiating classes were courses that had practical application because many of the people who took the courses used what they learned to officiate intramurals or leagues outside of school. " Our goal was to start individuals in officiating, " said Dr. James Herauf, officiating baseball and softball teacher. " We worked mainly with the mechanics of officiating. The students learned the rules of the sport in class and on their own. We usually had around 25 students. Many students officiated in recreational leagues in the summer and in intramurals. " Officiating basketball and football classes were good preparation for Brian Waits because he learned the rules of the sports and was put into actual game situations where he was required to make calls. " We went over game films and decided what calls should be made in different situations, " Waits said. Learn- ing the signals for calls and the different types of uniforms worn by the officials was also interesting to Waits. After completing the classes. Waits went on and became an intramural referee and took the first part of the test to become a high school official. " I learned a great deal and gained a lot of confidence that I could go out on a field and make good calls, " Waits said. -Ken Gammell Signal During an intramural football cham- pionship game, Cliff Baldwin signals a se- cond down.

Espano of the s club, routine Dalance -Photo by C. No vacancy Swimming, golf and gym- nastics were once varsity sports but were dropped in 1978. Tlie swimming program was discontinued because of inadequate swimming pool facilities at the time. Because of the poor facilities it was hard to at- tract teams to compete and also hard to recruit quality swimmers. Since then, the Foster Aquatic Center has been built. The golf program was also dropped due to a lack of facilities. The team had trouble scheduling enough practice time on the Maryville Country Club course, and the school year was shortened which meant less time to compete in good weather. The gymnastics program was discontinued because of a lack of facilities and an NCAA rule change that re- quired four competitors from each team in each event. Northwest had trou- ble finding enough com- petitors to field a team and inadequate facilities made it hard to recruit gymnasts.

Barrera 206 Clubs Something for everyone Football, basketball, track nd baseball grabbed the jimelight for sports fans and Ithletes. However, there were )ther athletic clubs not )udgeted by the athletic lepartment that offered tudents a chance to practice nd compete in sports they ■njoyed. Soccer was a sports club hat was able to compete with ither teams and clubs. There v ' ere 22 players on the men ' s ?am and 16 on the women ' s. " While many other colleges ave been improving the last ?w years, we ' ve stayed about ie same level, " said Gus Vegner, head coach for both ie men ' s and women ' s team. Many of the teams we ilayed were teams that were jnded by an ath letic depart- nent and could recruit, " Vegner said. " It was hard for us to offer luch, " Wegner said. " We aised money from dues, fund aisers and Student Senate. iVe couldn ' t have fielded a eam without Student enate. " Costs for the club included travel, referee fees and chalk- ing the fields. Another club on campus was the Gymnastics Club. This was once a varsity sport, but was dropped in 1978. " It would be more im- probable for it to be a varsity sport today than when we quit, " Sandra Mull, gym- nastics coach, said. " You needed special floors that we didn ' t have, and they were ex- pensive. Also, the better gym- nasts were from the bigger cities and tended to go to big- ger schools. Most schools our size were on the club level. " There were 25 members in the club. They worked out once a week. The club had in- trasquad meets but no com- petition with other schools. " I would like to see the kids get some exposure in com- pulsory competition. It had skill levels. A less advanced competitor could compete and win over a higher skilled, more experienced gymnast, " Mull said. The closest com- pulsory competitions Mull could locate were in Texas or Illinois. Swimming was another var- sity sport that was dropped in 1978. The only club on cam- pus related to swimming was Sigma Phi Dolphins, a syn- chronized swim team. " As a group, we practiced two hours a week and two hours on our own, " President Kathy Zierke said. " It was a chance to meet people, exercise and put a show together, " Zierke said. " It was fun and I got a lot of personal satisfaction from it. " Another club that allowed members to practice and pro- gress in their sport was the Martial Arts Club. " We practiced basic forms of karate and judo, " said Toshio Oiso, an instructor for the club. " When Dr. Chris- topher Kemp, the adviser of the club, felt the students had progressed enough, they would try for belts. Yellow was the first, then green, brown and black. " The club had 26 members, six of them women. They didn ' t enter any competitions, as a team, but members could on their own. Soccer " You used your body and it was good physical exercise, " Oiso said. " You also learned self-defense which was prac- tical. We taught what a person should do if they were attack- ed on the street. " For the Zoros on campus, there was a fencing club. The club was open to anybody who was in fencing class or anyone with previous ex- perience. " I had been interested in fencing quite awhile, " said Joe Steinhauser, a member of the club. " I took fencing class, but this was the first outside training I had. " " You had to appreciate fen- cing as a sport, " Steinhauser said. " There was more to it than slashing blades. There was quite a bit of technique and a lot to learn. " Scholarships, glory, the reactions from fans-that was all part of being involved in a funded sport. However, it took shear dedication to be part of an athletic club. -Ken Gammel Members of the men ' s soccer club en- joy a challenging game.

Tony Aburime is proud of the results ac- complished by his dedication to the sport. -Photo by E. Barrera I Pumping iron Weightlifting has increased dramatically in popularity dur- ing recent years. Almost all competitive athletes had to lift weights in their conditioning programs to keep up with competition. Many others us- ed it for competitive body building or weightlifting con- tests, while others used it as a way of keeping in condition. " There were at least 150 people in the weight club, " said Tony Aburime, president of the Weightlifting and Bodybuilding Club. " We collected over $3,000 with membership dues, " he said. " We bought our own equipment and kept the room clean. The club was a cooperative effort. " Good health was a major reason for participating in the weight room. " Weightlifting helped cut down on my doctor bills, " Alburime said. " Weightlifting gave me a greater resistance to illness, and I would recuperate faster. " " Weightlifting kept you healthy, " said Toshio Oiso, secretary of the weight club. " The harder you worked, the more you gained. There was no failure in weightlifting for conditioning. You do as much as you can do and progress. Everyone wants to be stronger. " Bob Green, assistant foot- ball coach and strength coach for the football team said, " Weightlifting was specific. Some people used it for general conditioning. Weightlifting didn ' t necessari- ly increase conditioning. In football, we were interested in increasing strength, ex- plosiveness, flexibility and en- durance, along with an in- crease in size. " " We lifted heavy weights for a low amount of repeti- tions, " Green said. " Some people think they are condi- tioning the total body, but they ' re not. The car- diovascular system and flex- ibility also need work. " We saw increases in these areas with our conditioning program and its helped our performance, " Green said. Weightlifting was man- datory for our players. We lifted twice a week during the season and five times a week in the off-season, " he said. " Since I began body building I ' ve had better health, " said Pam Baze, member of the weight club. " 1 felt it benefited everything I liked to do. Most women think that body building is something that will make them less feminine, it was really just the opposite. It made you twice as fit. It really benefited your mind, body and spirit, " she said. Baze advised all women to give it a try. " Some women found it as just a means of oc- casional exercise, while I found it a new lifestyle. Con- sistency kept it going. You can ' t lift just once a week and make progress. It was all to better yourself. " Whether people used weightlifting to become a serious bodybuilder or to compete with themselves and keep in shape, it was a familiar form of excercise. " I think weightlifting will continue to improve in popularity, " Green said. " It is part of an overall fitness trend and people are more into fitness than they used to be.

Barrera 208 Weightlifting Steroid myth While the popularity of bodybuilding and its benefits are encouraged by many, a controversial subject often associated with weight training and many other sports is steroids. " Steroids, as the theory goes, save nitrogen in the mus- cle, " Dr. Fred Hatfield wrote in his book, " Powerlifting, A Scientific Approach. " " Nitrogen is one of the primary parts of protein molecules, and without enough of it, you could not build muscle as fast. With it, you are not only able to build muscle at an increased rate, but also recover from heavy exercise more quickly. " While this sounded great, Hatfield also pointed out risks involved, including cancer, severe edema, damage to liver and kidneys and disfunction of sex organs. Hatfield said problems were most likely to arise in people under 25. The drug was extremely dangerous to diabetics or potential diabetics. One student used steroids to increase his strength for a powerlifting contest. The student asked his identity re- main unknown. " I used injections of testerone cypionate, a male hor- mone, " he said. " The first week my bench press went up 20 pounds. I talked to a doctor and he said they don ' t start to take effect for two weeks, so I don ' t know how much of it was physical or psychological. " While on steroids, this student ' s body weight increased from 180 to 220 pounds. While he increased greatly in strength and size, he also experienced negative effects. " I became more aggressive, " he said. " My sex drive in- creased and I got jaundice of the eyes. I also had bad acne on my back and trouble urinating because my prostate swelled up. When I drank alcohol, I lost control totally. " I assumed more was better, " he said. " I took 15 shots over the amount I should have. It got almost addictive. If I didn ' t have my shot, I felt down. " " It gave me energy to work out, " he explained. " If you didn ' t work out, you would just bloat up. They added to the male hormone to build muscles, but you had to work at it. " " They contradict the principles of body building, " said Tony Aburime, president of Horace Mann Weight Club. " Don ' t fool around with them. It ' s a no-win situation. There ' s a point you get to where your dosage doesn ' t work. Most people then take more which is dangerous. People who use steroids want the gains overnight. They don ' t want to pay their dues. The philosophy behind our gym was ' no steroids ' . " " I don ' t recommend them at all, " said Bob Green, assis- tant football and strength coach. " There is no such thing as a safe steroid program.

He hasn ' t been seen since. On Aug. 13, 1984, Eugene Wade Martin left his home on Des Moines south side and walked to the corner o Highview and Southwest 14th street; to wait for his papers to be deliverec for his route. He too, disappeared. Al that was found later were hi; newspapers, some of them folded, anc his paper bag. The cases of the two missing papei boys have had law officials working, but so far without success. Cosches parents, Noreen and John have searched for their son since his disappearance over two years ago. They sent out thousands of posters, appeared on major TV networks, spoke to congressional committees on child abduction and worked for legislation to require police depart- ments to move immediately on suspected abductions. To raise money for their search, they sold $80,000 in candy bars and held garage sales.

The Tiystery of the disappearances remains jnanswered. In the Aug. 19, 1984 Des Moines Register, John Gosch said the search or an answer v ould never end. " Not papd until our bones are dust and we can ' t Tiove. " If and when we find him, we could lOok him square in the eye and say. We did everything possible to find ou, ' " Mrs. Gosch said. Locally, posters were printed by Vlaryville Cable Television and distributed around town. Pictures of missing children since 1974 were displayed. Hy-Vee ' s home office in Sheraton, la., printed pictures of the two Des Moines boys on grocery sacks. The sacks were delivered to area stores and used for over a month. --Ken Gammell a Abbett, Dean M. 154, 212 Abbett, Karen M. 212 Aburime, Cyril I. 230 Aburime, Tony-Adams, 143, 204, 205 Accounting Society 128 Acker, Susan M. 164 Acklin, Anita M. 81, 132, 164, 230 Adair, Katherine J. 230 Adams, Russell L. 180 Adamson, Teri S. 212, 284 Adcock, Mark A. 160 Adeyemi, George B. 175, 230 Adkins, Susan M. 159 Administration Building 4, 5, 241 Ag. and Applied Sciences 64, 65 Agee, Keith D. 84, 118, 128, 230 Agee, Kevin D. 84, 118, 128, 230 Ager, Jennifer 128 Agriculture Business 127 Agriculture Club 114, 127 Agriculture Council 127 Agronomy Club 124, 125, 127 Ahlschwede, Lynda S. 123, 135, 212 Akers, Mitchell R. 69, 128, 212 Albers, Donna L. 141 Albert, Valeria L. 284 Albertini, Virgil 92, 93, 249 Albrecht, Quentin L. 154 Albright, Janna D. 132 Alcohol 44, 45 Alcoholics Anonymous 42 Alden, Paul 64, 127 Alden, Rina 148 Algoe, Teresa M. 123, 212 Aljunadi, Khalid N. 142 Allen, Barbara J. 123, 212 Allen, C.K. 64 Allen, Daniel B. 116, 150 Allen, Jeff 137 Allen, Pamela L. 148 Allen, Rebecca M. 212 Allen, Sara C. 123 Allen, Todd G. 100, 127, 230 Allgood, Jeffrey T. 212 Allie, George H. 107, 150, 230 Alliger, Brian H. 124, 212 Alpha Beta Alpha 71, 177 Alpha Kappa Lambda 27, 28, 150, 152, 153, 158 Alpha Mu Gamma 81 Alpha Psi Omega 31, 80 Alpha Sigma Alpha 148, 149 Alpha Tau Alpha 65 Alpough, Deborah A. 68, 116, 230 Alsbury, Michelle K. 118, 132, 230 Alsup, Richard 180 Am.

Former Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon sued TIME Magazine for $50 million over a paragraph in the Feb. 21, 1983 issue ' s cover story. The story said Sharon had discussed with then President-elect Bashir Gemayel ' s fami- ly, the need for revenge on the assassination of Gemayel. By stating he had this kind of discus- sion with Gemayel ' s family, Sharon argued, he would be seen as " indirect- ly responsible " for the massacre of Palestinian refugees by the slain leader ' s Christian Philangist followers. IIME said the paragraph cor- responded closely to a section of the report (Appendix B) done by the Israeli Supreme Court concerning the massacre. In the report, TIME claimed, were details of the discussion between Sharon and Gemayel ' s family. Sharon won a pivotal argument in the case, the jury found the story to be false. The jury also said TIME had defamed Sharon. However, for libel to be proved, " actual malice " must be found by jurors. That is, TIME had to have printed the article with knowledge of its falsity or reckless disregard for the truth. Sharon lost the case, but because he proved TIME lied, he claimed a " moral victory. " In another case, retired Army General William Westmoreland at- tempted to gain $120 million in his libel suit against CBS. In " The Uncounted Enemy: A Viet- nam Deception, " a documentary which aired in 1982, CBS accused Westmoreland of underestimating enemy troop counts to give U.S. leaders the impression we were winn- ing the war. Westmoreland claimed no information was suppressed and that CBS distorted the program to make it appear he had deliberately misled superiors. Shortly after two of Westmoreland ' s former top aides testified in favor of CBS, the case was dropped by the two parties in an agreement which stated they could dismiss the case " without cost to either party. " So on Feb. 17, 1985, after 18 weeks of testimony and with Westmoreland more than $500,000 in debt, the case was officially over. Yet, neither side would claim a clear victory. " The decision showed the press had a great deal of freedom in the First Amendment, " Dr. Roy Leeper, mass communication law professor said. " It showed the courts were serious about enforcing precedents set in past major cases. " -Barry Dachroeden Leaving court Claiming he was defamed by a 1982 CBS broadcast, William C.

shot four black teenagers in a New York subway car and became known as the " Subway Vigilante. " According to witnesses, the four youths were intimidating and were approaching people asking for cash. When they ap- proached Goetz and asked him for $5 he replied, " I have $5 for each of you, " and fired five bullets from a non-licensed .38 caliber hand gun, wounding all four, shooting two in the back. One of the four, Darryl Cabey was shot in the spine and paralyzed from the waist down. After spending six days in jail, charged with attempted murder and possession of an illegal weapon, Goetz paid $50,000 bail. Goetz became very popular after the incident. T-shirts, baseball caps, knap- sacks and bumper stickers were sold say- ing, " Goetz Four, Crooks Zero. " Over 3,000 T-shirts were sold. Andy White cashed in on his popularity by composing a song of praise called " Thug Buster. " Not everyone agreed with Goetz ' ac- tions. Rev. Joseph Lowery did not like the idea a sheriff was raising money for Goetz.

Ethiopia was especially affected by the drought. The plea for help was somewhat answered in October 1984, when Nairobi-based cameraman, Mohamm- ed Amin and the British Broadcasting Corporation televised the African crisis. Overnight, several countries, charities and corporations made dona- tions and sent record-breaking aid to war-torn Africa and its starving thousands. Amin ' s pictures were an eye opener for the entire world. They showed the need and drastic conditions some Africans lived under. Governments gave substantial con- tributions to Africa. TIME Magazine said the United States was the most generous benefactor to foreign nations seeking help. The U.S. donated $97.5 million in food during a two-month period. Washington critics said the Ethio- pian Government withheld food from rebel-occupied areas or misdirected government funding. While thousands died, Ethiopian officials spent more than $100 million revitalizing the capital city. Across the nation, various in- dividuals in the media spotlight, cam- paigned for donations. " Dollars which went into televising the countless cases of suffering should have gone towards food, " Connie Callahan said. They wasted money that could have helped thousands. " During Christmas season, the song " Do They Know it ' s Christmas, " was released. Popular English artists such as Boy George, Paul McCartney and Phil Collins pooled their musical talents together in an effort to save the starving Ethiopians. In response, American artists such as Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen banded together in February 1985 and released " We Are the Children " . Quincy Jones was director of the event. He left a sign outside the door saying, " Leave your egos here, " and produced an American melody which would bring relief to thousands. All record sale proceeds went to aid starving Africans. " I thought it was a great gesture on behalf of the record industry, " Jeff Douglas said. " It prov- ed even rich people put forth their own time and efforts in times of need. It showed compassion and a will- ingness to help during a crisis, " Douglas said. Opinions in America varied, some thought the help was humanitarian, others said the money should have stayed in the U.S. to help its own needy citizens. Others believed after receiving U.S. aid and support, too many nations were thankless and even hateful in response. The November issue of TIME reported thata Soviet government newspaper claimed the drought was not a problem and U.S. sensationaliz- ed the African problem. " Americans worried too much about Soviet opinions, " Douglas said. " It was great that Western-bloc na- tions were sending help. But the Africans needed aid for the future as well, so another tragedy like this doesn ' t happen. " No matter what the response America received as a result to foreign aid efforts, millions upon millions of dollars were donated upon request. -Ann Whitlow Starvation From the Hadendowa nomad tribe in Haiya, Sudan, two brothers sit on the camp ground.

A 15-day-old girl born with a lethal heart defect was " remarkably cured " after her heart was replaced with a ba- boon ' s, but she died after 19 days. The girl, only identified as " Baby Fae, " suffered from hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a congenital defect that afflicts one in 12,000 newborns. Doctors hoped the child could have " a long life " with the ape ' s heart. The only fear was the recipient ' s immune system might reject tissue from an unrelated donor. In previous operations, only four ape-to-human heart transplants had been performed, all in adults. Three patients died within a matter of hours, the other lived for three days. Many students expressed their sym- pathy for Baby Fae. " It was a good deal, " Mark Fisher said, " it was too bad she couldn ' t live longer. " " The operation was necessary, especially since they were trying to help save a life, " Todd Olson said. It was an incredible year for heart transplants. William Schr oeder and Murray Haydon became the second and third recipients of the artificial heart. Schroeder, 52, a retired government quality-control inspector from Jasper, Ind., was the world ' s second recipient. After undergoing two long operations, Schroeder was getting in and out of bed, sitting in a chair, eating solid foods and drinking Coors beer. Doc- tors were amazed by Schroeder ' s speedy recovery, but Schroeder later developed a fever and suffered a stroke which impaired his memory. Doctors remained optimistic of his recovery. The third recipient, Murray Haydon, 58, of Louisville, Ky., did so well it was frightening, according to Dr. Allan Lansing. Haydon, a retired auto- worker, was taken off a respirator and his progress was considered to be 24 to 36 hours ahead of where William Schroeder was. But Haydon ' s recovery was in- terupted. After surgery, he was tired and suffered mild kidney failure. Two weeks later, Murray was rushed back into the operating room because of in- ternal bleeding. In intensive care, Mur- ray recovered. Doctors hoped his quick recovery would resume. -Terrence McCreight Harris, Mark T. 25 Harris, Mike 172 Harris, Valerie J. 87, 101 Harris, Vicky J. 148 Harrison, Jill J. 73, 132, 134, 135, 157, 234 Harrison, Kimberly R. 68, 118 Harryman, Tamara M. 107, 203, 236 Hart, Margaret 250 Hart, Richard 79, 250 Hartel, Julie L. 217 Hathhorn, Todd 128 Hartleroad, Catherine A. 128, 131, 236 Hartman, Mark A. 128, 217 Hartner, Kelli D. 159, 201 Hartshorn, Teresa R. 69, 118, 218 Hartung, James 203 Hash, Linda K. 218 Hashimoto, Hiroshi 218 Hastings, Chris A. 131 Hatcher, Don 191 Hatcher, Lisa 176 Hatchette, Clifford R. 164 Hatfield, Fred 205 Haupt, Susan J. 218 Hauptman, Rhonda L. 24, 25, 68, 128, 146, 198, 19 9 Havens, Dennis K. 153 Hawkins, Celeste J. 236 Hawkins, Greg 154 Hawkins, Jennifer L. 63, 71, 73, 113, 236, 284 Hawkins, Mark A. 150 Hawkins, Randy 191 Hawkins, Thomas 164, 165, 166, 167 Hayes, Michael G. 138, 180, 218 Hayes, Jackie 171 Hayes, Stacy B. 236 Hayes, Vincent 172 Haynes, Ross A. 150, 218 Hayward, Stephen D. 130, 131, 135, 236 Haywood, Steve 64 Headrick, Tami S. 68, 146 Heater, Tracy J. 201 Heck, Edward G. 123, 138, 236 Heckman, Charlene 145 Heckman, James R. 127 Heckman, Teresa A. 123 Hedlund, Sheri R. 121 Heflin, Theresa D. 218 Heilig, Robin L. 150 Heimann, Deborah K. 183 Index 263 Hein, Barbara 288 Hein, Rebecca R. 138, 218 Heitmann, Lynette M. 218 Heitshusen, Barbra J. 138, 218 Heldenbrand, Nathan W. 236 Helle, Penny L. 132 Helzer, Lisa S. 218, 284 Hemann, Mike 192 Hemmerlein, Heidi L. 218 Hemphill, James H. 218 Henderson, Jason 154 Henderson, Kandace L. 76, 236 Henderson, Lisa L. 148 Heng, Tang G. 138 Henggeler, Janette E. 218 Henke, Heidi A. 123, 218 Henriksen, Tim 172 Henry, Allen D. 218 Henry, Bob 56, 57, 88 Henry, Larry M. 128, 153, 236 Henry, Mary F. 218, 281 Herbers, Donna L. 118, 128, 196, 218 Herman, Tracy L. 71 Hernandez, Daniel J. 116 Hernandez, Rodney A. 153 Herndon, Jan C. 157, 200 Herron, Michael R. 127, 218 Hester, Kandice D. 146 Heuermann, Laura A. 218 Hewitt, Jennifer L. 63, 145, 148 Hickman, Cynthia L. 128, 236 Hickman, Robbie B. 85 Hicks, Susan R. 64, 127, 218 Higby, Angie L. 123, 137 Higginbotham, Julia M. 148 Higginbotham, Norma J. 146 Hightree, Cynthia L. 236 Hill, Dennis 191 Hill, Robert L. 30, 141 Hill, Stephen B. 140, 172 Hilliard, Dan 145 Hinners, Julie A. 148, 157 Hinshaw, George 80, 82, 83, 1 18 Hipnar, Michael J. 69, 236 Hjerleid, Gavin E. 143, 192 Hoaglund, Barbara A. 132, 135, 218 Hobb, Colleen M. 171 Hochard, Craig E. 128 Hoeft, Andy J. 218 Hoffman, Maurisca L. 236 Hoffman, Timothy F. 180 Hogan, Elizabeth H. 148 Hohensee, Steve R. 124 Holdsworth, Dana J. 121, 132, 146, 218 Holechek, Anthony J. 26, 143, 186 Grim year for leaders A wave of attacks on two prominent world leaders resulted in one death. One attack was on Prime Minister In- dira Gandhi of India, who was shot at least eight times by her own bodyguards in an assassination outside her home. Gandhi, 66, had been under cons- tant protection for months, following a series of death threats from Sikhs outraged by her crackdown on mili- tant members of the sect in the Punjab state. The United News of India (UNI) and a former foreign minister both reported three guards involved in the incident, but UNI said only two fired shots. The slaying of the woman who dominated India ' s political life for two decades threatened to plunge her troubled nation into new turmoil. Gandhi ' s son Rajiv was immediately sworn in as India ' s new Prime Minister. Queen Elizabeth II said, " I ' m pro- foundly shocked. The world and Com- monwealth lost one of its most distinguished leaders. " The news tore through the hearts of Indian students at Northwest as well. " When I thought about the future of my country it scared me, " Silesh Ethiraj said. " When Ghandi was there, the coun- try was in order, " Ethiraj said. " There was no one who could rule India as Prime Minister Gandhi did. " The second attack was against Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in a Brighton, England hotel. As Thatcher was putting the finishing touches on her speech at the Conservative Party ' s four-day annual conference, a bomb detonated four floors above where the Prime Minister occupied a suite. That- cher and colleagues escaped unharm- ed. The IRA claimed responsibilty, and promised more attacks in the future. " I don ' t think people should assault leaders of their country simply because their job isn ' t being perform- ed properly, " Tina McPherson said. " It takes time for good leaders to develop. " One other leader was overcome not by guns, but by illness. Soviet leader Konstantin Chernenko, suffering from pulmonary disorders, had not been seen in public since Dec. 27, and questions were raised of his condition. If Chernenko were dying, who would be his successor?

After 1 photos of the fi rst black Miss America and another woman in sug- gestive nude poses were published in Penthouse, pageant officials asked 21 -year-old Williams to step down. She took a weekend to mull it over, then announced at a press conference she was giving up her crown for the good of the pageant. Runner up Suzette Charles, Miss New Jersey, filled the position of Miss America. The big question seemed to be why Williams posed. Williams said she con- sented out of curiosity, but never agreed to let the pictures be publish- ed. Penthouse Editor and Publisher Bob Guccione said he had a model release form. Photographer Tom Chiapel wouldn ' t talk. " Williams got a bad deal, " Mary Eberhardt said. " What she did was in the past.

At 6 a.m., citizens of San Juanico were jolted from bed as a string of devastating explosions ripped through liquefied storage tanks on the outskirts of Mexico City. Within a few days, rescue workers discovered 350 dead, 2,000 seriously injured and 1,000 missing. In a 15-block area, 80 homes were destroyed, 66 acres burned and more than 600 orphans created. A spokesman for the government- run petroleum monopoly, Pemex, said a gas truck apparently blew up, touching off more explosions, first at Unigas Company holding tanks and then at Pemex storage tanks for butane and liquefied petroleum gas. This didn ' t explain why more of the 20 LInigas tanks exploded, it didn ' t sustain why the only damage the com- pany incurred was falling debris. Citizens had noticed an increasing smell of gas, but thought nothing of it. One industry analyst said, " Everyone who knew what happened was dead. " Northwest students demonstratec concern over the tragedy. " I was shocked at all the people kill ed, " Barry Carter said. " I was surpris ed nobody was evacuated earlier. " " It could happen anywhere. It was ; human mistake, " Diane Snider said. The worst industrial disaster occurec in Bhopal, India. More than 2,500 peo pie were killed from poisonous ga; that leaked out of a local Union Car- bide plant. Hundreds died from gas in the air. Farmers saw animals groan and fall over. People gathered by hundreds in the hospital. Outside many groaned with agony and, blinded by fumes, fell to the ground. Officials of Union Car- bide were arrested for " negligence and criminal corporate liability and criminal conspiracy. " Two safety stan- dards failed to work in extinguishing the escaping gas. Students were interested because of the Union Carbide plant located in Maryville which manufactures bat- teries.

Rock groups were selling millions of albums and attracting millions of fans to their concerts. Two tours of the year, the Jacksons ' Victory Tour and Bruce Spr- ingsteen ' s, hit the area and found how much trouble devoted fans would go to for a chance at seeing their favorites in-person. Newspaper headlines read " Jacksons to play Kansas City. " That was the start of a madness which raged the four-state area. Purchasing instruc- tions for the Jacksons ' " Victory " Tour tickets appeared in area newspapers and were complicated. There was a minimum purchase of four tickets per order, to be paid only by a money order for $120 in a business-sized envelope. The clincher was there was no guarantee tickets would arrive at all. Tickets were not mailed for six to eight weeks after final sales were com- pleted. Were all the complicated pro- cedures and problems worth all that time and money? Many fans felt so. Andrea Maxwell said, " It was worth it. I ' m glad I went. I love Michael Jackson. " Many others felt the same way - the Jacksons were like magnets and they had talent - $30 worth of talent. Others weren ' t as thrilled with the Jackson extravaganza. Jill Darby said, " I went because my ticket was free. Otherwise, I wouldn ' t have gone. Thirty dollars was a lot of money. " The concert received great reviews in the Midwest. It was plain to see the Jacksons thrilled Kansas City. Many students were thrilled to hear " The Boss, " Bruce Springsteen, would tour the area in November. Springs- teen has had a large following for years, but the release of his seventh LP, " Born in the USA " catapulted him into a new wave of Springsteen-mania. More and more, people were discovering the music and messages of the Boss, and were becoming fanatics. " Bruce sang songs that dealt with life, " Lisa Petry said. " I could relate to them. " Announcements during Homecom- ing that tickets went on sale for con- certs in Kansas City and Lincoln, and spurred fans to act. " A friend and 1 decided Lincoln tickets would be easier to get, " Mike Theobald said. " We left at noon Saturday and camped out all night, " Theobald said. " It was like a big party. " Petry went through similiar extremes to get her ticket. " We camped out on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus for 21 hours. It was cold, and all we had were blankets and a big piece of plastic to cut the wind. It was an unusual experience, " she said. " Devoted Boss fans were the nicest in the world. " Other students relied on friends or scalpers for their tickets. For area con- certs, scalpers were asking over $100 for floor seats. When the day finally arrived, fans wondered if all the trouble would real- ly be worth it. " It was definitely worth it, " Nancy Kriz said. " He played nearly four and a half hours. The whole audience was captivated, whether standing on their feet or sitting on the edge of their seat listening to his more mellow songs. There was never a dull moment. " " The way he talked, moved, sang, how the audience reacted; it was like sharing an excellent experience with 10,000 of your closest friends, " Petry said. Angela Morgan summed it up. " Now that I saw Bruce, I ' ve seen ' the ' concert! Why go to any other?

Missouri farmers in counties north of the Missouri River experienced five crop failures in a row resulting in a record number of bankruptcies and voluntary liquidations, reported St. Louis Post-Dispatch . " We were caught in a vicious price squeeze. Many men lost the land they had farmed a lifetime, " said Hubert Null, manager of Peavey Com- modities. Bankers turned farmers away and urged them to take low-interest loans from Farmers Home Administration- the lender of last resort or place farmers sought credit when no other source was available, reported the Post-Dispatch. Because of bad credit, many banks in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Kan- sas closed or changed administration. The demand for U.S. farm products and value of land decreased. Farmers found they couldn ' t earn enough from crop sales to repay loans. " What we had was a situation similiar to the depression in the Silent The farm crisis had many farmers speculating whether they could afford to return to their fields for spring planting. Tractors stand silently on im- plement ' dealer lots because farmers couldn ' t af- ford to buy. -Photo by S. Trunkhill 1930s, " Null said. " Rural jobs for young men weren ' t there. Farmers were not improving land nor were they spending money on fencing, home improvements, clothes, cars or farm machinery which directly af- fected other businesses. " Showing concern for the situation, farmers rallied and demonstrated. Several were arrested, including Wayne Cryts, president of the Missouri branch of American Agriculture Move- ment, protesting low grain prices out- side the Board of Trade in Chicago. Other rallies recognizing rural pro- blems were held in Leonard, Mo., and Ames, Iowa. Several bills surfaced in Congress as Senators and Congressmen lobbied crop loans, cash subsidies and relief for debt-ridden farmers. A filibuster resulted. In a press conference. President Reagan proposed a farm deal which would remove government from agriculture and return farmers to a free-market system. " The free-market system had a basic appeal to several people, but the truth was farmers couldn ' t compete due to balance of payments, " Null said. " We had to buy machinery, grain and fer- tilizers plus pay high interest rates on loans and still not be marketable because other countries could sell for cheaper prices. " There was not another group of people this country depended upon more than farmers because everyone sat down at the table and ate, " Null said.

" With those words, James Oliver Huberty, 41, walked from his San Ysidro, Calif., home in July to a nearby McDonald ' s and opened gunfire. Seventy-five minutes later, 20 peo- ple were dead and 19 wounded. Huberty, killed by a SWAT marksman, gruesomely entered record books as being responsible for the largest mass murder in America. Little was known about Huberty or his reasons for the killing spree. The day had begun normally, according to his wife. Huberty appeared in traffic court, then took his wife and daughter to another McDonald ' s for lunch. Later the family visited the San Diego Zoo. After returning home, Huberty changed clothes and told his wife he was going hunting for humans. Those who knew Huberty said he was a loner, unfriendly, quick- tempered and odd. Huberty was from Ohio. There, he was apprentice to a funeral director, who said Huberty was anti-social and preferred embalming to greeting the public. In January 1984, Huberty and his family moved to San Diego. Huberty was a security guard, fired a week before the tragic event. It was rumored Huberty consumed hard drugs. Others said he was a racist and voiced his opinions often. Most of those Huberty murdered were Hispanic. Police said 17 of 21 killed were of Hispanic surnames. The victims ranged in age.

The oldest person killed was 74, while the youngest was eight months. An infant and mother, three months pregnant, were slain as they waited for their carry-out order. A group of three boys on bicycles were shot after they rode to McDonald ' s for a snack after a rigorous day of exercising. As Joshua Coleman and friends rode onto the sidewalk a voice yelled at them. As Coleman turned, gunfire broke the silence. Coleman was shot. He fell to the ground and pretended to be dead. Police said by not moving, Coleman ' s life was spared. In the hospital, Coleman found out his two friends were killed. Huberty used three automatic firearms during the massacre. In 90 minutes, he fired 257 rounds of am- munition. Victims, their families and friends were physically and emotionally scar- red. Withdrawl symptoms and recur- rent nightmares plagued their memories. McDonald ' s donated $1 million to a fund for survivors. The restaurant was closed and the site turned into a memorial. " It was a good idea to put a memorial there, " Michelle Mead said. " If McDonald ' s had stayed open, no one would have ever wanted to go there. It was the best thing to do. " Twelve-year-old Guillermo Flores lost his younger brother . in the massacre. " What scares me is that so- meone somewhere is going to try to kill 25 people so he can break Huber- ty ' s record, just like in the Olympics, " Flores said in L Ye magazine.

Video cassette recorders (VCR) and Trivial Pursuit were just two of the phenomena that made their mark. VCRs exploded on the home enter- tainment scene. TIME Magazine reported VCR sales reached one million units in December alone. " VCRs were one of the biggest Christmas items, " said Clay McNair, manager of Radio Shack. " We sold about 50 VCRs during Christmas season, it doubled in the past year. " McNair said Radio Shack sold one or two units a week. If buying a VCR was not possible for some people, there was the oppor- tunity to rent. Two stores, Movie Magic and Movie Center gave people in Maryville a chance to rent their favorite movies and a VCR. Steve Dappen, an employee at Movie Center, said business had been good since they opened in November. " People wanted a choice on what to watch. Here, they could pick what they watched, when and where. " Dappen said people rented more during bad weather and hol idays. If people weren ' t watching video cassettes, some were watching a board, building a pie and answering questions like " What bodily function reaches up to 300 miles an hour? " Trivial Pursuit, along with the popular Cabbage Patch doll, sat under more than one Christmas tree. Trivial Pursuit was a game split into six sections: geography, history, art and literature, science, entertainment and sports and leisure. " The game was entertaining, " Mary Henry said. " It appealed to a sense of stupidity because people didn ' t know some of the simplest things. " The original Trivial Pursuit game led competitors to other variations of all sizes and levels of competition. " Trivial Pursuit was a game with sudden results, " Counselor David Sundberg said. " There was a question followed by an immediate answer. It was also fun to compete in teams or one-on-one. " -Teresa Schueike fUr 4 » Index 281 Black and white and new all over The theme " Change of Pace " brought a change in style between the 1984 and 1985 Tower. " Last year was fadish and the 1985 Tower is traditional with a classy design and less special effects, " Editor Dana Kempker said. " Students noticed a new look they were ready for. " " It was completely different and had a more sophisticated air instead of new wave, " Adviser Laura Widmer said. " The change was done professionally and was quite attractive. " Trends altered yearly in all publica- tions. " The 7984 Tower was already out- dated, but the 1985 Tower will stay in style much longer, " said Kevin Fullerton, assistant production manager. Not only was the design distinctive, copy was also written using magazine style and flair. " The stories were better because they reached students about subjects that concerned them, " staff member Ann Whitlow said. Changing the style included a definite cover change. The idea was to move from new wave to traditional in keeping with the pages in the book. There were changes which occured on the editorial board. One editor resigned and was replaced, one transferred and another became ill and needed an assis- Fun times Dana Kempker, Kersten Swenson, Ann Whitlow, Sue Kelly and Chris Townsend await the gift ex- change at the Tower staff Christmas party. -Photo by E.

" The changes could have been a disaster and hurt cohesiveness, but the transitions went smoothly, " Widmer said. " The quality of the book was not hurt and in some ways, improved. " Improvements were strived for with work and long hours during 12 work weekends. " When the pressure was on, it was easier to handle because everyone was close enough we could express our in- dividual emotions, " staff member Marilyn Wright said. Friendships were created and activities became memories as a group of in- dividuals joined talents to produce a book which hoped to match the achievements of the ?984 Tower. " Throughout the year, we received proofs from the plant of pages we turned in, " Kempker said. " I felt good knowing the staff kept giving me their best and not letting up on a single deadline. Everyone will look back and remember all the long weekend hours and hard work, but I hope they will also remember the friend- ships, laughter and pride that went in preparing the 7985 Tower.

Tower staff 283 Thank you There are certain people to whom the yearbook staff would like to acknowledge and thank for their help and contributions to the 1985 Tower. Thanks to the administration, especially Dr. John P. Mees for his backing and advice and to Dr. Rick Bayha for his constant support, understanding and concern. A sincere and gracious thank you to ICP rep Bob Gadd. In times of disaster it was always a relief to hear his comforting words, " Hi, this is Bob Gadd. I ' m not in right now, but if you ' ll leave your name ... " Bob, thanks for answering our questions, thus calming my nerves. Also thank you to in-house reps Barry and Tim for their time and pa- tience. Portrait photographer George Meador, we appreciated your talents along with your humor and endless supply of stories. Thanks to Custom Color for developing those color prints in rushed time to help us meet deadlines. To Dave and Carole Gieseke who just can ' t seem to get the Tower Yearbook completely out of their system - a big thank you for pic- tures and promotion. Also helping with promotion was KDLX and The Northwest Missourian with the help of Kim Mothershead. And to Scott Steelman and Lisa Helzer for taking an enterprise idea and turning it into one of our favorite spreads. Thanks for your sensitivity and talents. A huge and grateful thank you to everyone off-campus and on who agreed to interviews and pictures, provided information and offered encouragement. We were able to make our book more complete because of you. Colophon Volume 64 of the Northwest Missouri State University Tower Yearbook was printed by Inter-Collegiate Press in Shawnee Mission, Kan. Portrait and group shots were taken by Delma Studio of New York. Color pictures produced by Custom Color of Kansas City.

Now, with pen in hand, I realize it ' s not that simple to put a whole year of emo- tion and memories on a single page. I look back on my staff and feel good about the relation- ships we shared - along with inside jokes and long hours. It couldn ' t have been done without you guys. No matter how many times you called me a " slave driver, " (or sometimes worse), I still want to express a very sincere " thank you " to each one for your special talents. Kersten you were my right hand and a terrific production manager, as long as your stomach was full. I loved imitating your twang. We made it working together, no problem. Sue and Chris next time you decide to set up office, please do it someplace a little more convienent. Yes Sue, you may go home now. Chris thanks for putting up with my yearbook jargon on the homefront as well as at work. Maryann you did it. Those cutlines were great and we even got a giggle or two out of you. Terrence, I ' ll put up with bent pica poles anyday for straight rule lines. Sorry you had to gather dust. And Ann Whitlow. I was worried after you spilled hot chocolate over everything that first day, but I came to rely and depend on you in every area (when you weren ' t asleep at the computer that is). Kevin thanks for sticking it out with us after pulling those two all-nighters your first week on staff. All complaining aside, I think you enjoyed it and we couldn ' t have done it without you. To the photographers, a special thanks for not lynching me when I sent you back into the darkroom on trip number four okay six. Thanks for giving me the quality I wanted. And thanks to those on the staff not mentioned here. Don ' t worry, I have special stories on all of you. I appreciated the hours put in toward making this book a winner in our eyes -not just a judge ' s. Of course this book could not have been completed without the cooperation of students, administration and faculty regarding interviews and photos. I learned so much being yearbook editor; not only in the world of journalism, but also learning to appreciate those around me. My family and friends heard constant McCracken news and just kept smiling and offering an ear to listen or shoulder to cry on. Somet mes I was tired or busy, but I didn ' t forget you were all behind me. Thank you. My biggest thank you goes to Adviser Laura Widmer. Four years ago, as my high school adviser, you showed me what journalism had to offer. I can ' t thank you enough for open- ing so many doors to me, having faith in my abilities and for becoming one of my closest friends and favorite traveling companion. You showed me the talents and qualities of a true-blue journalist and friend. You were there for advice and en- couragement and stuck by me even when I was wrong, but too stubborn to admit it. The lessons you taught me will stay always and I whole- heartedly say, " Thanks Clyde! " This yearbook is full of long hours, hard work, re-writes, re- prints and lots of pride by a staff who made it through several editorial changes and endless work weekends to give students their memories. Bound together between 288 pages is the 1985 Tower. Enjoy it Northwest - it ' s our gift to you! -Dana Kempker 1985 Tower Editor Responsibility Typesetting copy was only one of Tower Editor Dana Kempker ' s responsibilities.

Mild weatfier, at least for Maryville, followed break with no snowfall accumulating over five inches. Throughout the seasons the popularity of video cassette recorders, Trivial Pursuit and dark sunglasses held their popularity. On the big screen, Eddie Murphy won popularity con- tests nationwide. Tina Turner, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Lionel Richie and Cyndi Lauper dominated the music field. Farrah Fawcett chose television as the method to change her image in " The Burning I3ed. " Programs dealing with sensitive issues raised controversy and questions with au- diences everywhere. Changes occurred continuously through the year, both nationally and locally. President Dean Hubbard didn ' t just sit in his new office, but took action where he saw needed changes, ffis pro- posals reconstructed the chain of command within his cabinet. Vice presidents saw new duties and eireas of con- cern. Curriculum was another area which Ffubbardsaw destin- ed for change. Despite retention concerns and problems, ffubbard saw quality, not quantity, as the mission for Nor- thwest. Changes happened within administration not only at Nor- thwest, but also in Washington. President Reagan ' s second term brought about resignations and switches within his staff and cuts in aid for farmers and students. Re-elected President Ronald Reagan wins re- election with the biggest electoral vote in U.S. history. He swept 49 stales with 49 percent of the tola! vote. -APAVide Wodd Photos Executive Dr. Dean Hubbard was sworn in as the new president of Northwest during in- vestiture ceremonies in December.
