Some of our money went to the newly- installed computers. Everywhere we went on campus, we had access to a computer. Additional parking was still needed, but lots were color-coded in hopes of relieving problems. Bad weather was once again a problem on Homecoming, but instead of traditional rain, every- one was surprised to find snow. 4 Opening Jogging is a popular pastime for some fitness fanatics.

Photo by Kevin FuUerton DtUuCtlt L, IJC The lifeline of students ran jagged with many unpredictable moods. Our personalities and activities were as hard to forecast as the weather. While October snow dampened spirits, high tempera- tures later in the month caused spring fever. We were fed up with waiting in lines for cafeterias and administrative offices, and the three-digit queuing positions to get on campus computers only added to the frustra- tion. One computer feature we quickly mastered was the electronic mail system. Messages and letters could be sent to anyone on campus via computer lines. Use of electronic mail was finally restricted to the hours of 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. when it became impossible to get on a computer for academic use. It was a year of mixed emotions as change occurred. While some welcomed progress, others felt tradition was bei ng lost in technology. No matter the feeling though, we continued on our jagged... Lifeline I 8 Student Life spirits fly liigh Teaming up to boost enthusiasm rS _ chool spirit. Some thought of it as nothing more than supporting the Bear- cats and ' Kittens by attending athletic events. To others, however, it meant something more. It involved supporting the University in as many necessarily want them to do aspects as possible. Whether as a fan, cheer- leader or band member, stu- dents found ways to be true to their school. Many saw Northwest stu- dents as extremely dedicat- ed. " I thought for a small school, we were downright spirited, " Heather Rogers said. " Everyone was proud of the school. You could see the Bearcat on sweatshirts, and those little pawprints were showing up everywhere. Things like that got people into it. " Although the pawprint idea was relatively new, it showed up on the streets, on banners and on Advantage ' 87 T-shirts. " 1 kind of thought it would catch on, " Lx)ri Tyner-Weddle, assistant admissions director and creator of the idea, said. " I thought some little thing like that would get people ex- cited. The pawprints added a nice touch. " While the pawprints pro- vided another reason for Northwest students to get spirited, groups like the cheerleaders, the band, and the athletic teams created a cause for their excitement. The cheerleaders ' goal was to support the team by warm- ing up the crowd. " We tried extra hard to get the crowd involved, " Brenda Baker, cheerleading co- captain, said. " We didn ' t every cheer along with us, but they joined on some of the chants to let athletes know we were there. " The cheerleaders seemed to have a positive effect on the athletes. " We let them know some- one cared what they were do- ing for our school, " Nancy Dumont, cheerleading spon- sor, said. " We showed them we were behind them. " School spirit played a de- termining role in the nature of the games. " Fan support got the foot- ball team going, " Phillip Quinn said. " When we came out, the fans were cheering and the band was playing, and it made us play harder. I always thought. These peo- ple are behind us, so let ' s show them what we can do. ' " When one thought of Northwest, the mascot in- evitably came to mind. Bob- by Bearcat, a lively character, played a big role in school spirit. " 1 was a people person, and I loved little kids, " Stephen Griswold, who por- trayed Bobby Bearcat, said. " It made me feel good to put smiles on people ' s faces. I liked to get things started that caught the crowd ' s attention, like the wave or chants. " It was difficult for some spirit boosters to keep smil- ing when fans were less than enthusiastic. The spirit boosters gener- ally agreed it could be some- what frustrating when it seemed no one was paying attention to them. However, Dumont contended even though it was tough, the cheerleaders knew " they had to portray a positive image all the time. " Baker said she was able to keep going because of her excitement about what she was doing. " We practiced every day and put a lot of work into everything we did, from the smallest cheer to the most complicated pyramids, " Bak- er said. The marching band also put a lot of work into practic- ing. Although their main pur- pose was to entertain, their halftime performances and pep music during the games gave Northwest students a beat and helped psych them up. " The band definitely got the fans going when we played and did our band cheers, " James Huffman said. " Some of the players told me when the band was playing and yelling it gave them an extra boost. " Northwest ' s drill team, the Steppers, also played an im- portant role in halftime performances. " 1 got psyched up because I loved to dance, " Century Lawson said. " Drill team was part of my life. " While some students con- centrated on their own activi- ties, others focused more on being true to their school. As long as students showed a glimmer of interest, the spirit boosters kept plugging away to retain enthusiasm. D Teresa Mattson 1 Spirit Boosters V.

Although they represented different groups, they came together to achieve a common goal: to have fun while they raised money for philanthropies, it was a weel set aside for sororities and fraternities, and with streaks of competi- tion and gallons of fun, they used the week to paint the town Greek. Even though it was the first Greek Week to have a theme, many traditional events were maintained in the four-day spirit booster. Balloons and songs filled the air as Greeks gathered around the Memorial Bell Tower for a Greek Sing on April 21. Each group was in- troduced by Greek Week co- chairs Diane Watson and Dave Knapp. Chariot races of ancient Greece were re-enacted as fraternities pushed their hand-made chariots from the Administration Building to Roberta Hall. But even though the event was copied from the Greeks, expertise apparently wasn ' t as some chariots crumbled before reaching the finish line. " Everything happened so fast, " Toni Goforth said. " They put me in a chariot and started running, but the back wheels fell off. They just picked me up and carried me piggyback the rest of the way. " Fraternities and sororities combined their energies toward a softball tournament, picnic and a philanthropy project which included clean- ing downtown Maryville. They also sponsored a skat- ing party and donated pro- ceeds to the Maryville Parks and Recreation Department. The final day of Greek Week seemed to be the high- light of the events. A variety of games brought out laugh- ter and someti mes embar- rassment as Greeks cheered each other on. But even those who didn ' t compete joined in the fun. " The games showed the Greeks ' spirit because they got out and showed everyone what they were made of, " in- dependent Tina Preuss said. Activities got underway with the mystery event, which was an " undercover " game. Couples wearing box- er shorts jumped into zipped sleeping bags, exchanged shorts, crawled back out and sprinted to the finish line. Spectators enthusiastically cheered for their favorite par- ticipants, but some competi- tors were a little apprehen- sive. " I was nervous at first, but 1 realized the secret was to unzip the sleeping bag since it was so small, " Kelly Collins said. " It turned out to be a lot of fun. " There were no mysteries to the bat race, only a lot of confusion and dizziness. Af- ter the Greek men ran about 25 yards, they bent over, placed their foreheads on the end of a baseball bat and ran around it 10 times. Then they stumbled back to tag the next team member. The crowd wasn ' t very safe during the event because many contestants found it hard to run in a straight line. Some couldn ' t even stay on the playing field. " The people were in my way, " Dennis Graham said af- ter wiping out and falling on several people on the sideline. Spectators cleared the way again when it was time for the greased chicken toss. There didn ' t seem to be many tactics to throwing a raw chicken coated with oil, but one participant found a way to get a hold on the --continued 1 2 Greek Week Straining against the might of the Delta Chis, Pat Schleeter helps pull the Sig Eps to victory in the tug-of-war.

" i dug my fingemalls in it and got a good grip, " Cheryl Bauers said. Another game included food, but this time it wasn ' t so slippery. Domino ' s Pizza sponsored the pizza-eating contest. Spectators gathered to chant, " We aren ' t leaving ' til you ' re heaving, " and one woman lived up to those ex- pectations when she bit off more than she could chew. However, some contestants enjoyed the pizza. " 1 thought 1 was a bigger pig than that, but once 1 real- ized 1 wasn ' t going to win, 1 decided to take it easy and enjoy eating, " Stuart Gorton said. No matter what game the Greeks were playing, they seemed to enjoy the compe- tition and company of other Greeks. " The whole week was a time for us to put the feud- ing aside and have a little fun, " Dan Wells said. The week didn ' t end with Greek Games, but com- petition did. Awards were presented to Delta Zeta and Tau Kappa Epsilon for Out- standing Greek Organiz- ations. The Delta Zetas were also the winners of the sorority di- vision, with Sigma Phi Epsi- lon winning the fraternity di- vision. Representing those two organizations, Amy Elli- son was named Outstanding Greek Woman, and Jay Halla was named Outstanding Greek Man. After the ceremony, the Greeks celebrated the end of their week with an All-Greek Dance. " The week as a whole was one of the best ever for atten- dance and participation, " Watson said. " The new events went over really well, and the theme was carried out well. " Greek Week seemed to be a success, at least to those who participated. Through their combined efforts, the Greeks cleaned Maryville and raised around $100 for their philanthropy project. And even though they were separate organizations, together they painted a clear picture of their Greek spirit. D Cara Moore Lumbering toward the final ex- change point.

But at the beginning of the 1987-88 academic year, students were faced with some- thing new that would help DEC VT125 Graphic termi- them academically, personal- ly and socially. The Electronic Campus not only aided students in ev- ery facet of their college ex- perience, but it also con- tributed to Northwest ' s plan for improved higher educa- tion. The $3.1 million integrat- ed system provided com- puter terminals in every resi- dence hall room and faculty office. In celebration of the University ' s move into the Computer Age, Gov. John Ashcroft switched on the sys- tem, making Northwest the first public university to offer a comprehensive Electronic Campus. Over 2,000 terminals from two companies. Digital Equipment Corporation and Micro-Term, inc., were pur- chased. Residence hall rooms were equipped with nals that offered spreadsheet graphics, statistical graphics and picture processing. These accounted for about 45 percent of the terminals placed in rooms. Dr. John Mees, vice presi- dent for administrative and student services, said the computers were an asset to students and faculty mem- bers, adding that although the system was new, it had al- ready become an integral part of students ' lives. " Students used them quite a bit, " Mees said. " As things changed and the curriculum required more computer work, usage increased. " Students and administra- tors alike felt the com- puter system provided valu- able experience. " The Electronic Campus gave Northwest a big advan- tage over other colleges, " Rick Williams said. " I was disappointed because of the problems with waiting in lines, but 1 knew it would take some time to perfect the new system. " Academically, computers offered word processing, spreadsheet and statistical analysis, an on-line ency- clopedia and an electronic calculator. The electronic card cata- log allowed students to find library materials from their residence halls. The system also provided personal services like calendars, telephone directo- ries, and job and scholarship listings. Electronic mail, one of the most popular services, al- lowed students and faculty to send messages to one another, providing social contact. Through the Electronic Campus services, students cut study time and increased their knowledge of compu- ters. The system was funded through state appropriations, private donations and a grant in the form of terminals for --continued Photo illustration by Ron Aipough and Kevin Fuiierton Electronic Campus 1 7 The big switch faculty offices from Digital. Also, students financially supported a portion of the project with a slight increase in room rates. " I noticed the increase, but I used the computer for my classes and liked the mail system, too, " Page Moore said. " I thought it helped, be- cause businesses were turn- ing to computers more and more. " The computer offered a variety of advantages to stu- dents. An important one was simply the everyday ex- posure to the computer, which made students more comfortable with the technology. " In the Information Age, it was vital that stud ents be more than familiar with com- puters, " Ashcroft said at opening ceremonies. " They had to be comfortable and competent with them. And there was no better way to gain competency than by us- ing computers daily. " To even better serve the University, the system was structured around the Digital Equipment Corpora- tion ' s VAX, which allowed the network to expand by adding additional VAX systems. " The computer was help- ful with papers, " Lara Syp- kens said. " It made it faster and gave me more time to do other projects. I had never used a computer before, and I began to feel more comfort- able using one. " With a new, exciting Elec- tronic Campus to learn about, students became part of Northwest ' s plan to im- prove higher education. It was a plan to further the University in the technologi- cal world and to better the education program, but it ad- vanced students personally, as well. They learned new ways to study, better ways to write papers and faster ways to retrieve information. It brought them into the tech- nological world, showing them not only how to use a computer, but how to use it t o their advantage. D Suzan Matherne Selling the Electronic Campus How did a university sell a $3.1 million project? At Northwest, the job of selling the Electronic Cam- pus required the work of two offices and over $8,000. Promoting the Electronic Campus began before the first cables were laid. Both the Admissions and Public Relations Offices took part in the campaign. Dave Gieseke, assistant director of public relations, said University students helped with promotions. Ad- vertisements featuring stu- dents with computers were placed in high school news- papers. While promotions were planned by the Public Rela- tions Office, the Admissions Office made sure prospec- tive students received infor- mation on the project. Visiting students were given information pertaining to the Electronic Campus, and admissions recruiters took the message on the road. High school students ' responses to the Electronic Campus were mixed. " At first, students were baffled about the capabilities of the Electronic Campus, " Dale Montague, executive director of enrollment man- agement, said. " They knew the importance of com- puters, but not specifically what the computers could do for them. " However, as Northwest ' s computer advantage be- came more widely known, it put the University in a unique position. " The Electronic Campus made students realize North- west was up there among the leaders and that it had some- thing really special to offer, " Montague said. It was not immediately known what effect the Elec- tronic Campus had on the in- crease in student recruit- ment, but Montague said students generally listed the computers as only " third or fourth " in their reasons for at- tending Northwest. In an ever-tightening mar- ket for higher education, the Electronic Campus gave Northwest a unique feature to promote among prospec- tive students. The Electronic Campus put Northwest in the spot- light, and through University promotions, the administra- tion hoped to keep it there.

Library books could be looked up within a matter of minutes, and locating friends was no longer a frustrating task. Technology at its finest From 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. hiad been integrated into the when the mail mode was ac- learning environment at Northwest with the installa- tion of computers in every residence hall room and faculty office. For the first time, students and faculty members had access to a computer system at their fingertips. Students ' expectations for the system were high, and those expectations were often met with disappoint- ment when the system fell short of perfection. However, with any ad- vancement came problems. Gntil the initial difficulties were overcome, students faced setbacks when using the new system. " It was a hassle, " Chris Gose said. " It was too crowd- ed in the library to print any- thing off. " For this reason, some stu- dents avoided using the computers. " 1 had to type my paper in, file it, and go to the library to print it out, " Ken Campbell said. " The typewriter was still right there. " The advantages to having a computer in every resi- dence hall room were some- times also disadvantages be- cause of the large number of people who had access to the system. The majority of use on the VAX system was dedicated to the mail mode. cessible, there was a waiting queue. " The waiting queue was sometimes close to 200, and that meant waiting for a cou- ple of hours, " Campbell said. When the University tried to eliminate this problem, however, some students felt their corrective measures were too drastic. " Though I agreed with shutting the mail service off during the day, 1 thought we should have been allowed to at least read our mail mes- sages whenever we wanted, " Robin Brockman said. Another measure taken to avoid students mono- polizing the system was the automatic log-off for users logged on the system more than an hour, or for those who had been inactive for five minutes. The measure, though effective, seemed to irritate users. " It was upsetting when lit- tle messages flashed on the screen while 1 was writing be- cause it left a blank space in the middle of what 1 was typ- ing, " Campbell said. Though the measures al- lowed for some control, they didn ' t guarantee immediate access for users. Dr. Jon Rickman, director of Com- puting Services, expressed doubt toward a day when ac- cess to the mail mode would be easily attained. The amount of money that had already been spent toward the project was im- mense, and administrators seemed to favor investing in the academic capabilities of the system rather than in the mail service. Another area that seemed to raise opposition from stu- dents was the directory. It list- ed each student ' s name, ad- dress and phone number, all of which were available at the stroke of a few keys. " 1 didn ' t like the student directory because someone 1 didn ' t even know could have found out where I lived, " Di- ana Jensen said. " It took away from my privacy. " Students and faculty were also unsatisfied with the fact that the computer could shut down or log them off at any minute, regardless of what they were working on. " It made me angry when 1 was right in the middle of an assignment and the system shut down for repairs, " Kar- ralena Roberson said. The frequent problems were no surprise to those people directly involved with implementing the system. " We expected considera- ble problems in September and October because the system was new, " Rickman said. Administrators continued to make improvements in the system as it was adapted to meet the needs of students and faculty. Even though the system didn ' t meet their ex- pectations at times, adminis- tration continued to focus on and improve those areas that caused problems, n Debbie Allen 20 Electronic Campus With a bored expression, Dave Maytes looks over his news- paper to see if his terminal is back in service.

Although some couldn ' t shake the desire to be somewhere else, other graduates used the time for contemplating the future and reflecting on the past. The May 9 ceremonies marked the 81st spring Com- mencement exercises. More importantly, they marked both an ending and a begin- ning for graduates. " 1 wish my parents could have shared the proudest day of my life, " Hong Kok said. " Still, there were so many questions. 1 wondered, what now? Where do 1 go from here? " Others related to Kok ' s uncertainty. " 1 was ready to get out of school, but i wasn ' t really sure if 1 was prepared for the future, " Jodi Brady said. " When 1 looked back on my college years, I couldn ' t real- ly think of anything 1 had learned to prepare me for that step. " Ready or not, graduation day had finally arrived. Seniors had looked forward to the day since the begin- ning of their senior year and some since their freshman year. The commencement ad- dress was delivered by Mis- souri Secretary of State Roy Blunt. In his speech he fo- cused on computers and praised Northwest for ad- vancing into the computer age with the Electronic Campus. Although computerization was an important issue for the University, some gradu- ates felt the topic was over- used during Commence- ment exercises. " I thought spring gradua- tion ceremonies had nothing to do with the graduating seniors, " Kirby Small said. " All they were doing was rant- ing and raving about the Electronic Campus, and none of the graduates were able to use it. " As graduates listened to an address some thought didn ' t apply to their class, the heat added to the annoy- ance. " It seemed long, and it was incredibly hot, " Tina Steinke said. " But I wore shorts under my gown, so I was more comfortable than some. " espite the heat, most graduates were glad they went through the ceremony. " College would have seemed incomplete if I hadn ' t gone through it, " Steinke said. Other graduates went through the ceremony to please their parents. " A majority of graduates just went through Com- mencement ceremonies be- cause their parents hadn ' t gone to college, and they wanted to see their kids graduate, " Brady said. Whether they wanted to be there didn ' t matter to graduates who still ex- perienced excitement, spec- ulation or sadness. Part of them tried to hold back tears D ' during their good-byes while helping friends fix collars and tassles. Others reflected on regrets, thinking there had been things they would have done differently. " L ooking back, I wish I ' d have taken things a little more seriously during my freshman and sophomore years, " Dawn Prall said. " Also, I think 1 would have gotten more out of it if I had taken more classes that interested me outside my major. " Many considered their fu- tures. Was the next step getting a job, marriage or an- other degree? " Jobs were becoming specialized, so we had to be specialized in our areas, " Bra- dy said. " I wasn ' t really wor- ried about where I ' d be be- cause I knew I couldn ' t get a job without my master ' s. I knew I ' d be back. " Others felt they were ready to join in the working class without obtaining another degree. " I was looking forward to getting into the job market, " Andrea Maxwell said. Gntil they realized the graduates crossing the stage were their classmates, some hadn ' t put much thought into the future. " It hadn ' t really hit me that I was graduating, " Cathi Jones said. " It was really exciting. " Whether their discomfort was caused by the heat of Lamkin Gym or uncertainty about their lives. Northwest ' s newest alumni realized they were doing more than just stepping across a stage. They were stepping across the threshold of their futures. D Teresa Mattson ■y:--. i . 2.2.

Pho- to by Nancy Meyer Graduation 23 The Diploma Chase students master the game of college life i n the great crapshoot of life, the col- lege years were the make or break years for many. Players came from all over to roll for that elusive prize: a college degree. And while the odds were in their favor, obstacles made the guilty " hooky " feeling of blowing off homework for the sake of a good time. The question for many freshmen wasn ' t really whether to drink each night, but what to drink. The first week of the year may have been early to bed and early to class, but for many, the next week meant starting the MeisterBrau and Mo-Doz diet, shaking their way to the " Pick Up the Freshman 15 " square. Partying inevitably led to freshmen ' s first experiences with add drop at midterm, hopefully saving themselves a stop on " Flunk a Class. " Second semester usually brought relative stability, with students who survived the eariier trials sticking it out for another round and maybe even taking a shot at choos- ing a major. The Middle Years Many students spent their sophomore and junior rounds trying to make up for the mistakes of their fresh- man year. University catalogs were dug out of milk crates and litterboxes as stressed- out students hurried to sal- vage their academic pro- grams. Landing on the " Change Major " square be- game a risky one at best. With the right combination of looks, brains and a little luck, winners could choose the American Express Gold Card behind door number three. Without a degree, the Chance card read " Go to work at McDonald ' s; go directly to work at McDon- ald ' s. Do not pass go; do not collect a BMW " Still, most students didn ' t have a high stakes gamble in mind when they came to the University. And whether they entered with " skulls full of mush " or as Presidential Scholars, they shared com- mon experiences: the ups and downs of college life. The First Year Free at last, freshmen crawled out from under the parental thumb and onto the most difficult stretch of the game board. Armed with new 501s and blinding white Reeboks, they were ready to tackle the college experi- ence. Their new-found fre edom often brought out the first, and one of the biggest, ob- stacles in college life: the urge to party. Freshmen quickly discovered the sweet. came a way of life. When Molecular Genetics started splitting pre-med majors ' brain cells, basketweaving started to look better and better as a career option. By the junior year, most students had the game under control, dropping classes as their bills or wardrobes demanded. They also gained philosophical bearing on their educations, mumbling rationalizations like, " Well, an ' F ' does build character.... " The third year also meant hitting the organization cir- cuit, picking up the right membership cards for an up- coming round of " Build that Resume. " The Senior Year Just when everything seemed to be falling to- gether, it happened. Senior- itis set in. in just a few short months, it would be time to face the rea l world, and stu- dents realized they still had some serious party time left. Classes were put on the back burner for socializing, and the goal became simply to pass everything and get out of the ' Ville. With the real worid loom- ing ahead, seniors found themselves wishing they could keep the game going for just one more round. It would just take one more lucky roll.... " Hah, snake eyes!

Photo by Ron Alpough 26 Freshman Orieritation Off on the right foot Advantage 87 gives freshmen an edge A over the country, first-time stu- dents flooded college campuses, appre- hensive and uncertain. Just three months earlier, they had been the upperclassmen, the ones who knew all the rules and often made their own. But now they were freshmen again, pinned to stereotypes. Up- perclassmen waited for a first- year student to end up in the wrong classroom or go to the wrong cafeteria so they could remark, " Yep, he ' s a fresh- man. " Compared to other begin- ning students, however. Northwest freshmen had an advantage. Advantage ' 87, to be exact. The new, week-long orien- tation program was designed to help freshmen register for classes, meet new people and get a taste of college life. " I thought it was a good idea, " Shannon Miller said. " It gave me a chance to learn my way around campus before classes started, so I wasn ' t so nervous. I also got to know some of the people on my floor during the week. " While freshmen enjoyed meeting other members of their class and learning more abou t (Northwest, many of the week ' s activities weren ' t quite so enjoyable. The students were put through a full range of tests to determine for which class- es they were best suited. They were tested in the areas of math, comprehension, reading and study skills. The results of the tests were meant to aid both the stu- dents and their advisers in scheduling, but some stu- dents failed to see the point of the program. " I didn ' t understand why we had to take the tests, be- cause I knew people who missed them and didn ' t have to retake them. " Belinda Pat- ton said. " They didn ' t have any trouble getting their classes figured out. My ad- viser didn ' t pay much atten- tion to the test results when he was figuring out my schedule. " Students were able to get to know their advisers during the week, and they met with their Freshman Seminar groups. The pur- pose of the seminars was to help first-time students with- stand the transition from high school to college. " Freshman Seminar help- ed me in some ways, like learning to use the library, " Steve Jennings said. " 1 didn ' t learn as much as I expected, but it was a good opportuni- ty to meet other freshmen with similar interests. " The Freshman Seminar program had been in place for three years, but changes were implemented to make the course more helpful. A new text was added, and the peer adviser program was started. Peer advisers were upperclassmen who attended Freshman Seminar sessions to answer questions and share expertise with fresh- men. " I knew the freshmen were nervous when they came here, " Jamie Valentine, peer adviser, said. " It helped when they knew they had upper- classmen around to help.... We were all freshmen once. " Just when freshmen start- ed to feel there was noth- ing to college life but testing, seminars and meeting in- structors, the social side of Advantage ' 87 took over. [New students participated in picnics, icebreakers and a back-to-school dance. Thanks to Playfair, stu- dents were able to forget all their first-week worries for a couple of hours and focus on having fun. The icebreaker was held in Lamkin Gym the first night of Advantage ' 87. Music, mixers and games en- couraged the freshmen to interact. On Friday, an Activity Fair was held in the Student Un- ion Ballroom. Representa- tives from various groups and Maryville businesses were on hand to welcome freshmen. The event allowed new stu- dents to look at campus or- ganizations. " As a whole, I thought the week really went great, " Rick Williams said. " I had the op- portunity to learn about the different fraternities and see what they had to offer. 1 also got to know my roommate better before classes actual- ly began.

Of course, some were anxious to get back into the swing of things, and others were here for the first time with high expect- ations. But all 5,054 students didn ' t have to walk far to soon found themselves fac- ing the routine of classes and the hassle of moving in. Students were also faced with a problem that wasn ' t so routine: overcrowding. Enroll- ment had Increased by about 500 people from the previ- ous year, and it was apparent everywhere. Students saw advantages to Northwest ' s growth, how- ever, because more students meant more money. " The extra students were beneficial to the University. " Sherry Mclnteer said. " There was more money to invest in new programs, and I felt more of our needs were be- ing met. " Residence halls that had been closed for repairs were re-opened to serve as tem- porary housing until more people could be accommo- dated. Some men stayed the entire first semester in Doug- las Hall. " I had the option of mov- ing during the semester to the high-rises, but I didn ' t mind staying where I was, " Henry Dominguez said. " My roommate moved and shared a room with two other guys, so I had a private room and class. One thing students did mind was waiting in lines that never seemed to end. Mass- es of impatient students were delayed, in some cases for hours, at the cafeterias, the Registrar ' s Office and Cash- iering. A few students who felt the problem wasn ' t being dealt with quickly enough started petitions for Taylor Commons to open both sides of its serv- ing lines. " It was ridiculous that stu- dents had to start petitions to complain about things that obviously needed to be done, " Brad Summa said. Extra people flooded class- rooms, as well. Chairs weren ' t as plentiful as stu- dents, forcing instructors to move classes to other buildings. Gpperclassmen tended to blame the inconveniences on the unusually large freshman class, whose enrollment in- creased 30 percent from the year before. " I waited in line four hours for general registration only to find the freshmen had filled all the classes 1 wanted, " Steve Rehbein said. " Even though I didn ' t pre-register, as a sophomore I should ' ve been able to take general education classes without having to get special permis- sion. " There were even problems with parking that the new color coding system for park- ing lots didn ' t seem to alleviate. " I bought a red parking sticker that should have al- lowed me to park close to my dorm, but it didn ' t, " Mark Gerling said. " I might as well have saved my money and parked off campus as far as I had to walk. " Big numbers didn ' t have to be bad. though. Good things were also waiting when students arrived. Each resi- dence hall room was equip- ped with a computer terminal followed by the promise of telephone installations in October. New dugouts were built on Bearcat Field, the newly remodeled Everett W. Brown Hall welcomed the College of Education and yellow paw prints were painted on streets near campus entrances. Students found the first days memorable, eventually getting through the lines and finding parking spaces. When the year got underway, overcrowding became less noticeable as students joined the routine and squeezed into ca mpus life.D Cara Moore 1 First Days 29 Reason to celebrate Show choir gives noteworthy performances T he " talent development concept " was at the core of several Culture of Quality objectives, but that idea had been at work for eight years among the mem- bers of Northwest Celebration, the CJni- " There was a lot of excite- ment in St. Louis, " Dave Hi- man said. " When tiie au- dience was appreciative, it really made us want to do our best. " In January, Celebration performed for the Missouri Music Educators ' Convention at Tan-Tar-A at the Lake of the Ozarks. Of the nearly 90 tapes submitted by groups auditioning for the honor. Celebration was one of 12 groups chosen. In a spring tour, Celebra- tion planned to perform in Springfield, Pleasant Hill, Marshfield and Aurora. Wey- muth said the group tried to plan its tours to include high schools that were good for recruiting music students. Before school started in August and during the first week of classes, open auditions were held. Over 100 performers auditioned for the 24 spots. Each prospective member sang a pop solo and a madrigal, then demonstrated sight reading and pitch memory skills. The top 48 advanced from those preliminaries. At that point, the singers were given a pop song writ- ten exclusively for Celebra- versity ' s show choir. Dr. Richard Weymuth, the choir ' s director, said it was the pride in their work that made the members ' perfor- mances shine. " Their pride was the neatest thing about the group, " Weymuth said. " They wanted to be good. We were all involved in mediocre things at one time or another, so it was nice to be involved in a group where everyone cared. " The group ' s efforts paid off in performances. Celebration presented its repertoire of popular songs and dance steps approximately 1 5 times each year for audiences on and off campus. In addition to their regular stage show, they presented madrigal pro- grams at the Renaissance Festival in Bonner Springs, Kan., and at madrigal feasts. They did shows for events like Sneak Preview in addi- tion to their regular spring concert, fall musical gala and state-wide tours. During the fall semester. Celebration members travel- ed to St. Louis, where they performed for over 7,000 people at the Missouri State Teachers ' Convention. tion and orders to learn it in two days. They returned for final auditions, which usual- ly took over four hours. Although the auditions seemed grueling to some, they provided performers with good experience. " it wasn ' t that difficult " freshman Jodie Winter said. " We just had to do a good job and be confident of our talents. " After members were cho- sen, practice sessions began. Surprisingly, Celebra- tion was only able to practice together during the three- hour weekly class period set aside for rehearsals. That meant members had to spend time outside the group learning their parts. Although practice time was limited, the group didn ' t buckle under the pressure, and Weymuth said members kept positive outlooks on their work. " There were no attitude problems, " Weymuth said. " The student s were all there because they wanted to be. I hadn ' t had a bad rehearsal for years, because they came in every day with the attitude that we were going to be good. " If honors and acclaim were any indication, the group had indeed accomplished some- thing impressive: a musical achievement worth celebrat- ing.D Mike Dunlap 30 Celebration As they sing " I Go To Rio, " Stephanie Brewster, Kyle Gor- don and Susan Riffle perform a set of memorized steps.

Most college students played it. Many failed, but some playedl the game and won every month. The game was called " Penny Pinching " and the ob- ject was to see how far one could stretch the dollar bill. Winners of the game got anything for nothing, or almost nothing. Their jargon included words like " free, " " sale, " " bargain " and " coup- ons. " I was a winner at " Penny Pinching, " and 1 agreed to share my secrets of success. I began each month by figuring my income. My grand total each month was $308, or about $298 after the government got through with it. After I subtracted my bills from my checkbook, my re- maining total was $23. The challenge began when I tried to stick to my budget and still have $23 left at the end of the month. Rent was the only bill I had no con- trol over, so I looked at my other bills: groceries, electric- ity, transportation and tele- phone. That was when the fun began. 1 took my grocery bill first because it was the most difficult for me to reduce. My first trick was a trip home the first weekend of each month. 1 was careful about how I looked when I went home. I wore baggy clothes and little makeup. Upon seeing me. Mom would immediately feed me. Then she cleaned out her refrigerator and freez- er before I left. Next, to help on my trans- portation fee, I always bought just enough gas to get home. That way, when Dad took my car for a test drive, he had to fill the tank. The remaining three weeks were spent wheeling and dealing. If the game was played right, the food bill could actually be cut by eat- ing out. The first pointer was to always use coupons. The rest took skill. 1 always went to Mc- Donald ' s and ordered water and two fish sandwiches at the drive-through window. I paid with loose change and a " buy one fish sandwich and get the second one free " coupon. 1 never ordered french fries because I always got them free after pulling forward to wait for my fish. After I got my inexpensive meal, I went elsewhere for dessert. At that time, ASAP was offering 10-cent ice cream cones with a coupon. So I got two fish sandwiches, french fries, water and an ice cream cone for $1.22. Grocery stores often had tent sales, too. It was not difficult to find 25-cent ham- burgers and hot dogs, for ex- ample. If they weren ' t having tent sales, then they were having sample days. One day I sampled Twinkles, Little Debbies, pizza, soda, chips and popcorn, and I didn ' t even buy any groceries. I found 1 could save money on my grocery bill by joining campus organizations, too. I always checked to see which groups provided meals and snacks. I was surprised how many did. My next challenge was reducing the electricity bill. A good policy was to use fans in the summer and electric blankets in the winter. I al- ways stayed on campus as long as possible during the winter so the heat in my apartment could be turned off during the day. The only other trick I had for reducing transportation costs was bicycling or walk- ing. This defeated my grocery-cutting techniques though, because I ate twice as much. Instead, 1 just hitched rides all the time. The next bill was the tele- phone. The best rates were after 11 p.m. Monday through Friday, and all day Sunday. 1 never made long- distance calls any other time. Also, when talking to rela- tives, I would hang up in the middle of a conversation so they ' d think we were discon- nected and call back. Other penny-pinching tricks included showering with a friend, buying stamps at HyVee (they were two cents cheaper per stamp), hanging clothes instead of drying them, entering free drawings and wearing clothes at least three times before washing them. People thought I was crazy, but with my penny- pinching techniques I didn ' t owe anyone any money, 1 paid my bills and usually had $23 to spare. It overcame people in much the same way alcohol and drugs did. It was a habit that became even more difficult to break as its play- ers became addicted to the satisfaction it brought. Win- ning the game meant having more money for entertain- ment, and in a world of class- es, tests, homework and ob- ligations, getting away meant having money. Some people called it cheap. 1 called it survival. D Deb by Kerr 32 The Budget Bite The Budget Bite 33 A hot air balloon lifts off dur- ing Encore Weekend to official- ly open the arts season.

The weekend kicked off with a concert by country music group Sawyer Brown, Friday, Sept. 11. Sawyer Brown receiv- ed their break on the televi- sion show " Star Search. " Since their appearance on the program, the group had released three albums and continued singing their way to fame. " Some people said we were a little too rock ' n ' roll, " lead singer Mark Miller said, but Sawyer Brown still cap- tured a diverse audience when they performed in Lamkin Gymnasium. It was 10-year-old Jennifer Skinner ' s first concert, but some elderly people said it would be their last and left early because the music was too loud. Others drove two hours to hear Sawyer Brown and said they were not let down. " It was the first concert 1 had been to, and I wasn ' t dis- appointed, " lowan Sheree ISaill said. " 1 came to boogie, and I never stopped until I left. " The next day featured the Bearcats ' home opener against Washburn University. The score was 26-27 with five seconds left when North- west ' s Peter Rameh kicked a 30-yard field goal, to clinch the game for the Bearcats with a final score of 29-27. That evening, the two-hour comedy special " Make Me Laugh " returned to cam- pus. The game show paid $25 plus a T-shirt to contes- tants who could survive the comedians ' routines without laughing. Concentrating on other things proved to be the strategy winners used. " 1 just tried not to think about what the comedians were doing, " Fred Davis said. " 1 kept my mind on some- thing else. " Also on Saturday night, Missouri Western State Col- lege presented William Shakespeare ' s " Much Ado About Nothing. " The produc- tion was part of an exchange program between the Theat- er Departments at Northwest and Missouri Western. Encore Weekend was brought to a close the follow- ing day with " Send-off for the Arts, " a special celebration of entertainment and the arts. The event was held at Col- lege Park, and it featured Maryville High School ' s Dix- ieland Band and Flag Corps. Northwest ' s Chordbusters Barbershop Quartet also performed. In addition, a hot air balloon, provided by Kansas City Balloon Fantasies, was released to officially kick off the arts season. Jan Corley and Ron Houston won rides in the bal- loon when their names were drawn in a raffle. Corley enjoyed her ride and planned a balloon ride for the rest of her family. " I was apprehensive when we first lifted, but there was nothing to be afraid of, " Corley said. " It was perfectly serene and quiet up there. " The balloon drifted with the wind and finally landed in a field seven miles northwest of Maryville. " We went where the wind took us, " Corley said. " We were at its mercy. " Although Encore Week- end ended with the balloon lift-off Sunday, Sept. 13, it was only the beginning of an arts and entertainment sea- son that was off to a flying start.

What they found wasn ' t an interior decorator ' s dream, but it was their new home: their dorm room. By using a little brought stuffed animals for Z4 creativity and adding per- sonal touches, however, stu- dents made their rooms more like home. Decorating techniques ranged from the subtle to the sublime, and in every case, they indicated the occupant ' s taste and personality. Most dorm residents had roommates, so space was limited. That led many to build lofts or make bunk beds. " We had a big entertain- ment center cabinet to put in our room, " Charles Hossle said. " To make extra space, we made our beds into bunks. " Many residents brought memorabilia to ease their transitions. These often in- cluded posters of their favorite music groups or pho- tographs of relatives and friends. " I brought tons of pictures of my friends to put up as lit- tle reminders of home, " Tan- ja Miner said. " Having their pictures up made it seem like they were a lot closer. " Besides pictures and posters, many students their rooms. " I had a stuffed ape dressed like a wrestler that 1 really liked, " Angle Dyson said. " It reminded me of my ex-boyfriend. " Stuffed animals were the next best thing to real pets, which were not allowed in the dorms. But some people thought the real thing was the only way to have it, at least to some extent. " Everybody needed a Mur- ray to adorn the door, " Mike McClain said. " There was nothing like a dead minnow stuck to your door to greet guests until it started to decompose. No abode was complete without one. " More lively decorating techniques covered the spectrum of paint-splattered walls, stenciled designs or the graffiti-covered wails of those who did not feel like painting. There were also displays of empty alcohol bottles on stu- dents ' window ledges that gave visitors a personal ac- count of the quantity and ver- ity of alcohol the occupant consumed. Extra space allowed resi- dents of Roberta Hall more decorating options when it came to turning their resi- dence hall rooms into homes. " 1 loved living in Roberta, " Kristen Anderson said. " Ev- ery room was different and homey. The rooms were big, and the furniture could be moved around, so I wasn ' t limited in terms of what I could do. I liked my room so much I could have never moved off campus. " Another plus Roberta resi- dents had was personal bathrooms, saving them from having to wait for show- ers with a whole floor of women who always seemed to want the showers at the same time. " Having your own bath- room was great, " Anderson said. " It was nice to be able to go in or out in the morning. " Whether in Roberta or another dorm, however, stu- dents found ways to express their style through decorat- ing. With a few of their favorite things and some ingenuity, students turned dorm rooms into places to retreat from campus life. With rooms of their own, residents were no longer strangers to campus. In fact, it felt a lot like home.n Denise Pierce Dorm Decoration 37 Weather or not Show goes on despite snowy reception fW ' e interrupt the regularly scheduled program to bring you this ' TV Guide " Special Report from Maryville. Our reporters are on the scene at Northwest Missouri State University to report the highlights from Homecoming Day. i-et ' s see what ' s happen- ing on campus. But first, we ' ll take a look at the weather. Unseasonably cold weath- er fell on Maryville residents this 10th day of October when they awoke to a light blanket of snow. The low for today is 35 degrees and the high will be around 40. A light snow will continue until late this afternoon, when the skies should clear up. Now back to Homecoming at Northwest. As you just heard from our " TV Guide " weather report, the snow is coming down here in the ' Ville, and temper- atures are extremely low for October. But as they say in televi- sionland, the show must go on. Some students have been here since 6:30 a.m. putting finishing touches on floats and clown costumes. But even though the snow has been dampening the streets, it doesn ' t seem to be melting any of that Bearcat spirit. Here ' s Rusty Richardson. Rusty, how do you think the snow will affect the overall turnout for the parade? " We ' ll all have just as much fun, but not as many people will come out to watch. That really hurts because we ' ve all worked hard for this day. " Hard work is evident here, judging by the floats and clowns. Spectators seem anxious for the proces- sion to begin as they huddle along College Avenue under blankets and umbrel- las. We just got the official word from Karen Hoppers and Jeff Ranum that the pa- rade is starting. Hoppers and Ranum are serving as stu- dent co-chairs of the Home- coming Committee and have been getting things ready since 6 a.m. Cameras are rolling as 150 units prepare to go before the crowd. Young spectators are pay- ing close attention to the familiar faces of Charlie Brown, Linus and other " Peanuts " characters as the Delta Zeta float approaches. Even though most of the entries in today ' s parade re- present Greek organizations, there are also several in the independent category. Here come some clowns representing University Play- ers. Their characters are, ap- propriately, from " Master- piece Theatre. " The clowns, which are in- terspersed throughout the parade, have some spec- tators wondering who ' s under the costumes. This group of clowns is the Fruit of the Loom guys. Actually, it ' s the Fruit of the Loom gals of Phi Mu. As the parade passes the Alumni House, former Bear- cats show their spirit and ap- preciation for all the effort that went into the parade. Here ' s alumna Amy Parrot. Amy, why do you come back to your alma mater for Homecoming? " There is a closeness about coming back, especial- ly in the fall. It ' s just a festive time with all the Home- coming activities.

" Even though the viewers represent all ages, there seems to be something everyone can relate to, from Mr. Rogers to Oprah Winfrey. Here comes a float with all our super-hero friends. Some men from Phi Sigma Kappa said earlier they rebuilt Wonderwoman four times before they were satis- fied with the way she looked. Maybe their perfectionism will pay off today at the awards ceremony. The last parade highlight we ' ll be bringing you is this float constructed by the Ag Club. This is one of the few independent floats in today ' s procession. The " Hee Haw " scene is complete with a basset hound.

Even though some fans are nearly hidden under blankets, band members can ' t ignore the light snow as they sing " Jingle Bells " while walking off the field after their performance. This fan, John Struhar, thinks the weather affected almost everyone today. " The poor weather has lowered the morale and brought the crowd, players and band below their top per- formance level. " We ' re going to take a break now while the Bearcats take the field for the second half of this Homecoming contest. Stay tuned for results of the game.... Welcome back to our " TV Guide " Special Report. The ' Cats lost their game 23-0, but some players had good performances. After the game, the Don Black Memorial Trophy was presented to Paul Watkins, who made 10 tackles, eight of which were solo, and inter- cepted a pass. Now let ' s take a look at some footage from events that took place earlier in the week. The annual Homecoming Variety Show opened Thurs- day night, followed by a repeat performance Friday. Master of Ceremonies Rob DeBolt warmed up the au- dience, while Phi Sigma Kap- pa got the show rolling with their skit, " Late Night with David Letterman. " Another highlight was Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia ' s version of " Star Trek: The Next Com- petition. " They boldly went where no football player had gone before: past the Regis- trar to graduation. Act II concluded with Del- ta Chi ' s " Homecoming Live, " a spin-off from " Saturday Night Live. " After guest ap- pearances by a couple of wild and crazy guys, the Cone- heads and the Whiners, it was time for the finale. Five Homecoming queen finalists were escorted to the stage of Mary Linn Perform- ing Arts Center to await the crowning. The title was awarded to Kim Zimmerman, sponsored by M-Club. Zimmerman said she was thankful for the support from her basketball coaches and team members. That footage completes our show, but we ' ll conclude with this weather update. To- day ' s light snow has stopped, and the forecast for tomor- row includes sunny skies and a high in the upper 60s. And that ' s the way it was, Oct. 10, 1987.

It was a great day for a football game. Band members began tuning their instruments, while cheerleaders stretch- ed and practiced stunts. Stephen Griswold got psyched as he transformed into Bobby Bearcat. Greei s and other groups posted banners that displayed their organizations ' names. Pre-partying was evident as overly enthusiastic stu- dents could be heard singing and chanting. It was game day, and spirit was in the air as preparation for the game began. The ' Ville seemed full of new faces as parents and friends came to cheer the football team. Visiting alum- ni prepared for the game as they gathered at a reception sponsored by the Alumni House. By meeting at the house, former students joined with friends before cheering their alma mater at the stadium. " Our purpose was to act as an alternative meeting place on campus for old friends to come and get reacquainted, " Rollie Stadlman, associate director of alumni and de- velopment, said. While alumni relived memories, athletes prepared to make new ones. The lock- er room was silent as each player became lost in his thoughts. Would the Bear- cats be hard to capture and even harder to hold, as their name indicated? As athletes concentrated, the rhythmic ripping of tape could be heard in the back- ground as ankles were wrapped. Finally, when the silence became too overwhelming, it was broken by encourage- ment and a reminder of strategy and goals. The room came alive as expectations were made apparent and ath- letes responded in deep uni- son. A final huddle was broken by a blast as the band cued the team to the field. " It was called adrenaline flow, " Lance Reed said. " We wanted to win, and we had a lot of desire. Winning was a goal set deep inside us com- ing out with raw force. " rith the athletes ready to take on their oppo- nents, food ready in the con- cession stands and the field marked, spirit came alive in the stands. The east side of the field was a sea of green, as North- west attire dominated the home stands. Students ar- rived with everything from painted faces to cardboard replicas of Bartles and Jaymes. Greeks displayed school spirit by wearing their letters W " to the game and sitting in one section. " Before the game we met in the lobby of Roberta to sing some songs and do a few chants, " Phi Mu Cheryl Condra said. " Then we walked to the game together carrying our banner. " Keeping with tradition, the men of Phi Sigma Kappa placed their cannon near the endzone to celebrate touch- downs with a bang. Another tradition was fill- ing leather canteens with favorite beverages and seeing if students could emp- ty them before Campus Safe- ty officers did. " My buddies and 1 filled our bodas with our favorite li- quid, sat in the front row and begged for our pictures to be taken, " Max Elliot said. Spirit remained high throughout the game as each fan found his own way to sup- port the ' Cats. At last, tired fans deserted the stadium. The ground was littered with discarded pro- grams, crumpled popcorn bags and used paper cups, while parking lots emptied as students sent off parents and friends. Athletes retired to the locker room after an ex- hausting workout, and alum- ni returned to their homes. The ' Ville sighed in relief from the hustle and bustle of the day. Some fans collapsed and called it a day. Others prepared for the night ahead. D Connie Ferguson and Debby Kerr H. fn The ' Cats appear to have the support of Bartles and Jaymes.

Photo by Debby Kerr 46 Fitness Of sound body Students work in workouts ew students found much to smile about on their way to 8 a.m. classes. While most were caught somewhere be- tween sleep and consciousness, quick blurs and flashes of fleecewear passed them, calling out cheery greetings. Those on their way to classes shuddered at the mere thought of exercising during such a forsaken hour. The students had ex- perienced a brief encounter with those caught in the quest for fitness. Running, aerobics, weight lifting and bicycling were a few of the activities in which health- conscious students and faculty participated. The addition of the Fitness Center, located in the base- ment of Lamkin Gym, provided faculty, students and Maryville residents an al- ternative fitness program. The center was developed by Dr. Gary Collins and Dr. Jim Redd, associate profes- sors of physical education. Weight stations and sta- tionary bikes were available to members. Members were tested for strength, flexibility and body composition. Evaluation of the tests enabled the center ' s staff to prescribe the proper individual fitness program. The participants were tested periodically during their train- ing, and their exercise regi- mens were changed accordingly. " A major goal of the Fit- ness Center was to get peo- ple concerned about their lifestyles, " Collins said. " We wanted to help them make healthy choices, and we felt participants in a physical ac- tivity program had better at- titudes about themselves and led healthier, more produc- tive lives. " Student members of the center found a relaxed at- mosphere in which to work out. " Members didn ' t have to worry about working out with top-condition athletes be- cause ages of members ranged from 18 to 88, " Eu- gene Stillman said. Others felt the non- competitive atmosphere was beneficial to members. " The center provided me with an alternative to run- ning, but I usually tried to work both programs daily, " Allison Benorden said. " When students and faculty used the facilities, it was easy to be motivated. 1 felt 1 could push myself as little or as much as 1 wanted. " The Aquatic Center also provided students with an alternative exercise facility. " 1 swam during the winter because it was easy motiva- tion, " Todd Miller said. " 1 made it a point to work swim- ming into my schedule, even if I was extremely busy. It al- ways paid to sacrifice some time. " Although students made sacrifices, they made daily workouts a priority. " If my schedule looked too full, I ' d get up at 7 a.m. to run, " Benorden said. Some students felt if they didn ' t work out, it was to their disadvantage. " I could always tell when I needed to exercise, " Bridget Lammers said. " I ' d get irrita- ble and wouldn ' t be able to concentrate on my studying. After exercising, 1 was in a better mood and more alert. " Faculty members and ad- ministrators were also swept up in the fitness craze. Bruce Wake, director of housing, ran over six miles daily to train for five- kilometer runs and half marathons. " 1 never intended to run competitively, but once the gun went off, the race horse in me came out, " Wake said. Those who were conscious of physical fitness agreed that more students should have been active. " I ran about six days a week and felt great knowing my body was in good shape, " Kevin Guest said. " Fitness should have been attained by more people. They needed to quit being sedentary. " From dawn to dusk, exer- cise was an important part of many lives. Watching the hooded runners jog into the sunrise, students with 8 a.m. classes sighed and trudged on their way.D Cynthia Angeroth Fitness 47 48 Turning 21 Coming of age The big two-one grants a license to ill rO parks of blue and red neon seared through the blackness of the night, pierc- ing my eyes as I slowly lifted my head off the curb.

His blue and orange uniform swam over me, and 1 roiled bacl onto tlie sidewaik in front of The Pub. it had been one hell of a L " birthday, just like everyone ' s 21st should have been. I was afraid my old friend Ralph would come up sooner or later, though, and he did with a vengeance right on Mary- ville ' s main drag. I guess I should have ex- pected it after a day of almost non-stop partying. I ' d finally become a major, and like many others who had just turned 21, I spent most of my birthday picking up free drinks at bars where I ' d been served since I was 19. Still, there was a thrill to buying alcohol legally that made hitting the big two-one a highlight of the college ex- perience. I was off to bigger and better hangovers. My roommate had awak- ened me that morning with a stirring air-guitar version of " So You Say It ' s Your Birth- day, " and we toasted the occasion — and got toast- ed — with a Tequila Sunrise breakfast. I was amazed how interest- ing my Pop Media class was that morning as I giggled through it, trying to keep up with an instructor who both appeared and spoke in slight- ly stilted stereo. uck was with me, though, when the teacher gave each of us a quarter and told us to write a creative article on how we spent it. That was all the incentive my friends and I needed for a birthday game of machine gun quarters. When we were finished with that, we went to Easter ' s to pick up some more provi- sions. Easter ' s: the store that would have carded my grand- mother if she tried to buy INy- Quil. So what happened? They didn ' t card me on my 21st birthday. Needless to say, I was furious. After speaking to the assistant manager, the manager and the district supervisor, I final- ly found someone who would ask for my I.D. At the bars, my friends made sure we didn ' t replay that unpleasant scene. " Aren ' t you going to check his I.D.? " they ' d ask before we ' d ordered a single drink. We went to The Pub first, because I knew after a few drinks, " pitcher of Pub Punch " would be nearly im- possible to say. Drin king it alone proved to be a real possibility, however, when a friend tricked me into doing " two-fors. " " C ' mon. I ' ll drink two, and you just take one, " she said, a sour look seizing her face as she pretended to force down two sips while she watched me get loaded. We followed that with stops at Power Station and The Palms, where I also picked up complimentary drinks. The converse relationship between bladder size and al- cohol consumption finally caught up with me in The Palms, causing a hasty and awkward stumble to the la- dies ' room. " Mike, what the hell are you doing in here? " a friend of mine asked, quickly zip- ping up and going out to guard the door. Next came the drunken realization that a differ- ent bartender would be work- ing at The Pub and I might be able to get another free drink there. When we got back to The Pub, we picked up our drink- ing games, and one with a fairly high boot factor sent me outside to shout at my shoes. The next morning, as harsh white light ricocheted around my room, I pondered my 21st. It was a birthday not to be forgotten. Well, at least after everyone reminded me what happened.

Campus Activity Pro- those factors had grammers and the Depart- ments of Theater and Music cleared the way for what seemed like a barrage of per- sonalities, and students were left wondering what celebri- ties would appear next. " With the variety of people on campus, we had to work hard to please everyone, " Tom DeLong, CAPs vice president, said. " We wanted to satisfy everyone and in- troduce them to things they had never considered. " Dr. Ruth Westheimer Spring semester in 1987 brought the smallest but probably most famous of the guests. Dr. Ruth Westheimer. Greeted by chants of " Ruth! Ruth! " as she took the stage for a lecture at Mary Linn Performing Arts Center, the noted sex therapist promised to express her message in " language the walls had never heard. " The vivacious 4-foot-7- inch speaker teetered on the wooden platform that al- lowed her to see over the lec- turn as she discussed sex and relationships. Westheimer addressed such issues as AIDS, con- dom etiquette and sex roles in her lecture and in response to students ' questions. She also discussed the differ- ences in men ' s and women ' s sex roles and the implications on intercourse. " Concerns across the country from students were basically the same as those I heard on my television and radio programs, " she said. " The overriding concern was AIDS, but college students were also worried about long- distance relationships and pressure about sex. " Westheimer was in a good position to discuss student in- terests, twice having been voted College Lecturer of the Year. Westheimer felt the rela- tionship was a reciprocal one, however. " With a standing ovation like I received, I knew those people were going to be fabulous lovers, " she said. Sawyer Brown The University ' s first En- core Weekend in September meant three days packed with entertainment. Sawyer Brown kicked off the festival with a concert in Lamkin Gym, strumming hits like " Step That Step " and " Used to Blue. " The group first garnered national attention by winning on the television show " Star Search, " and received critical acclaim from Billboard and Cashbox magazines. Though categorized as country musi- cians. Sawyer Brown tran- scended standard boundries. " Their lead singer was real- ly charismatic, " Eric Peterson said. " He added to the group ' s southern-fried rock sound. " Emo Philips In a stop on his " whirlwind tour of the tornado belt, " Emo Philips blew into Maryville on Nov. 5. With his pre-pubescent voice and post-mortem wardrobe, the comedian entertained the audience with stories of his childhood, college days and sex life. Craning across stage. Philips told stories students could relate to. The audience found it hard to believe he had been associated with the ROTC program and was shocked to hear he made the dean ' s list for three years. " Then the fourth year, they got someone else to type it, " Philips said. Philips was anxiously awaiting the release of his movie, " Journey to the Center of the Earth. " The movie was to be released when the government met his demands. Philips said, which included blocking theater exits so no one could leave after the first five minutes.

The group was support- ing its most recent album, " Tornado, " and lead singer Bob Walkenhorst said their live performances inspired most of the tracks on the LP. " Playing live really created the ' Tornado ' album, " Walkenhorst said. " We tried not to write about touring and life on the road, though, but about the emotional experiences. " Walkenhorst, a 1979 Morthwest graduate, said the crowds for their most recent tour had been more en- thusiastic than the year be- fore, and those who attend- ed were more likely to know the music. That definitely seemed to be the case for the Ballroom concert, which was packed with fans. The year before, the crowd had been sparse. " 1 wanted to be better here than anyplace else, " Walken- horst said. " When 1 played for people who knew me better, it seemed like there was more at stake. " The crowd obviously relat- ed to the music and respond- ed enthusiastically to hits from both " Tornado " and the group ' s self-titled album. Walkenhorst said what au- diences received from the music was a more subjective experience, however. " I thought our music moved people on different levels, " Walkenhorst said. " People heard the lyrics and related to the common emo- tional experiences.... There was something communicat- ed in the music that said we cared about what we were doing. " The Famous Chicken Flapping into Lamkin Gym, the Famous Chicken heated up a cold winter night by paying a visit to a Bearcat basketball game. The coun- try ' s most famous sports mascot entertained fans with his antics, which included tricks at the expense of referees and distracting free- throw shooters. The Chicken gained prominence as the mascot for the San Diego Padres baseball team, but since that time had toured around the world to perform at baseball and basketball games. " The Chicken was very en- tertaining, " Barb Meyer said. " He spiced up the game. I was watching the action, but I usually kept following him to see what he was doing on the sidelines. " Noel Harrison The rain in Spain may have stayed on the plain, but in February, the reign belonged to guest artist Noel Harrison, who played Professor Henry Higgins in the campus production of " My Fair Lady. " Harrison, a veteran actor and musician, played the role made famous by his father. Rex. Though it was the first time he had done " My Fair Lady " with a student cast, it was the 15th time Harrison had played Higgins. Harrison said he tried not to be influenced by his father ' s portrayal, but admit- ted some lines were so clas- sically attached to his father that the inflection could not be changed. When he began the role 1 6 years ago, it was strictly for the money, but his attitude toward playing Hig- gins had changed since that time. " 1 had my own way of do- ing Higgins, and each time I played him, 1 learned more about the role, " Harrison said. " 1 heard myself doing things that were like my father, and 1 tried to drop them. " Still, Harrison said he gained some things from his famous father, including a sense of personal style. Most students who worked with Harrison on " My Fair Lady " found that style easy- going and professional. The guest artist said he gained a great deal from working with students. " Students were like B.S. detectors, " Harrison said. " 1 knew when I was talking non- sense to them, because they got all glazed over. It was a wonderful lesson in being truthful. " Whether working side- by- side with celebrities or just seeing their performances, students had their brushes with greatness when famous personalities visited cam- pus.D Mike Dunlap and Kevin Sharpe Famous Visitors 53 Knowing the importance of safe sex, Tony King purchases a condom at a local con- venience store. Since the scare of AIDS had become a reality on many campuses, students displayed more responsibility for their actions.

The spread of AIDS forced many students to focus on monoga- mous relationships. Photo by Connie Carlson 54 Dating Habits I Acting responsibly AIDS tiireat changes dating habits I tudents always seemed open to new experiences. Some were away from home for the first time, away from house- hold rules and moral restrictions. With that freedom, students had more oppor- tunities to experiment with multiple partners were espe- drugs, alcohol and sex. Left alone to create their own set of values, most students en- gaged in some experi- mentation. A national campaign stressing the importance of safe sex indicated the age of promiscuity was over. Still, some students couldn ' t see a difference in sexual habits. " 1 thought people were more aware of the situation, and they were going into it with their eyes open, " Mike Watson said. " But I still didn ' t see any difference in what was going on. Guys were just as eager as ever. " The term " safe sex " was a fairly new one. It came about in response to the AIDS scare, but it encompassed other sexually transmitted diseases, as well. It became important for those who were sexually ac- tive to know their partner ' s health and sexual patterns. " A person had to know things like that before getting involved with someone, " Mark Flammang said. " Peo- ple just couldn ' t be too care- ful. Some of the diseases were forever. " Questions about sexual patterns tended to be embar- rassing, however. But people who engaged in sex with cially at risk. One of the most popular solutions seemed to be long-term relationships. " I believed people would be thinking more about monogamous relationships, " Mary Strong, a nurse coordi- nator at the Student Health Center, said. Those who did not prac- tice safe sex measures, however, may have just been uninformed about the AIDS epidemic. " In this part of the country, we had not felt the impact, " Strong said. " We didn ' t know people who had AIDS. Peo- ple were afraid, sure, but un- til they actually saw it in their own lives, they tended to think of it as something that would happen somewhere else. " he time when students would come face to face with the disease may have been closer than they antici- pated, though. In 1982, there was only one reported case of AIDS in northwest Missouri. By November of 1987, the number had risen to 346 cases. With that kind of increase, it was important for people, especially sexual- ly active students, to stop worrying about sexually transmitted diseases and start taking precautions. T ' " 1 had some friends who were suicidal, who just didn ' t care enough to do any thing about safe sex, " Flammang said. " But they should have. " Many made important de- cisions to protect themselves. Condom sales went up na- tionwide as men and women carried them as safeguards against diseases. In fact, 40 percent of condom sales were to women. While many students seemed to continue in the same patterns, some changed their dating habits. " 1 used to really be into partying, but 1 think 1 quit be- cause of the push for safe sex, " Michelle Peterson said. Consciously and uncons- ciously, people were becom- ing educated about AIDS and other sexually transmit- ted diseases. Publications and movies dealt with the traumas in- volved. On the airwaves, Janet Jackson sang " Let ' s Wait Awhile, " and Atlantic Starr stressed " One Lover at a Time. " People were concerned about doing the safe thing when it came to sex. Stu- dents chose different ways to handle the scare. Some re- lied on the use of condoms, while others abstained from sex completely. Still others chose to practice monoga- my. As students continued to learn more about them- selves, they accepted the responsibility needed to se- cu re their futures. □ Teresa Mattson Dating Habits 55 Better late than never Nontraditional students get back to the books T. raditional college students sought higher education immediately after high school to pave the road to their careers. But for some, the road detoured to a job, marriage or family as they were forced to yield to other responsibil- ities. Montraditional students felt they were able to make a right turn later in life by returning to college. As they merged with recent high school graduates, adjusting wasn ' t always easy. As if jug- gling a job, family and an education weren ' t enough, nontraditional students sometimes had trouble com- municating with other stu- dents. The challenge was even greater when the classroom was filled with students young enough to be their children. " The younger students felt more uncomfortable around me than 1 did around them, " Anne Carmen said. " But once the ice was broken, it wasn ' t hard to get along. " Carmen, who attended Northwest with her husband Frederick, said starting col- lege was a tough decision. Their daughter, who had at- tended the University, encouraged them to get degrees in art, but Anne wor- ried about graduating from college at the age of 62. " My daughter convinced me by saying, ' Well, look at it this way: you ' ll be 62 any- way, with or without your degree, ' " Carmen said. " So we enrolled and even receiv- ed financial aid. " The Carmens felt they made a smart decision by joining the collegiate world, but they felt the need to be- come involved. Their solu- tion was to check into start- ing an organization for older students. " Socially speaking, youn- ger students had their par- ties, fraternities and sorori- ties, but there were no real social groups for older peo- ple on campus, " Anne Car- men said. " We wanted to change that. " For other nontraditional students, having enough time for all their commit- ments was a concern. " Going to school full-time and working caused difficul- ties since 1 always tried to pri- oritize my time, " Dave Cle- ments said. " Ideally, my top priority was my family, but it didn ' t always work that way when 1 was busy in other areas. " However, many who re- turned to college felt the struggle was worth it. Some had always dreamed of grad- uating from college, so when the opportunity arose, they were willing to make sacrifices. " 1 had tried college after high school, but I got mar- ried, " Frederick Carmen said. " Then children came along so 1 had to give it up. " His wife Anne didn ' t even go to grade school because she grew up during the Great Depression. For traditional and non- traditional students alike, attending college applied pressure. However, some- times that perfect balance between school, work and fa- mily could be found. Boyd and Kirsten Midd- lebrook found that demands in one area seemed to balance and help in other aspects of their relationship. " Trying to maintain an education and a marriage really didn ' t cause any difficulties for us, " Boyd Middlebrook said. ' After we got married, 1 earned the highest GPA 1 had ever had. If we had to study at the library we made time to do it and were still always there for each other at home. " Their roads were filled with potholes as nontraditional students detoured back to the main road. Although many had other commit- ments, they steered toward one central goal: a college education.

Non-smoker, good housekeeper, studies during the week but likes to have fun on weekends. It was that time again. Students were making last-minute dashes to find compatible roommates. " Roommate Wanted " signs were posted on every availa- ble bulletin board across campus. Many took chances and settled for whoever called, but there were a few who never worried about finding roommates. These students struck it lucky in the beginning and were assigned compatible roommates their freshman year. Some of these roommates continued living together throughout their college experience. Some students knew who their perfect roommate would be because they had been friends for most of their lives, so living together seemed logical when they came to college. " Christy Burton and I were roommates our entire four years here, " Donetta Cooper said. " We had known each other since we were five years old and had been best friends since we were 12, so it was just natural that we would become roommates. " Not everyone was as- signed the roommate they would later live with. Some started friendships before moving in together. Third-year roommates Kelly Leintz and Missy Bourne met and formed a friendship that later led them to become roommates. " I had a private room, and when Missy got into a fight with her roommate, she would come and stay with me, " Leintz said. " Knowing what she was like helped when we moved in together. " Differing personalities did not keep people from being roommates. In fact, many people found it easy to get along with their roommates even if they had different at- titudes to contend with. " Bill Fletcher and I hardly ever got into any fights, which was weird since we were different in terms of personality, " Mark Stransky said. " We probably would have gotten along easier if we were more alike, but as it was, we complemented each other. " thers found they had to alter their lifestyles to have a successful roommate relationship. But in some cases, opposites did attract. " I was a night owl and Christy was a morning per- son, " Cooper said. " A lot of people wouldn ' t have ap- preciated a light shining late at night or at 6:30 in the morning. We just had to give and take, but it was easy for O ' us to adjust. " Even though roommates had to adjust to living together in such close quart- ers, their compatible perso- nalities carried through to their social lives. " We were inseparable, from the start, " Sheryl War- ren said about her relation- ship with roommate Ronelle Johnson. " We were born five days apart at the same hospi- tal and our mothers were best friends, so we had al- ways done a lot of things together. On weekends when we went home, we tried to separate and do our own thing, but even that was hard because we lived close to each other. " While some roommates kept disagreements to a level of discussion, others never had to deal with them. " We never fought because we had too much in com- mon, " Warren said. " I think the last fight we had was in elementary school. " Roommates I_oretta Card- er and Lynn Ripperger got along just as well. " It was unbelievable how well we got along, " Carder said. " I considered myself pretty lucky to have had such a great roommate. " As some residents found not only the perfect room- mate but also a lifetime friend, others desperately continued scanning bulletin boards hoping to simply find someone to live with.D Demise Pierce Roommates 59 From Shakespeare to Snoopy Variety spices up theater season JL re rom the grandeur of Elizabethan Eng- land to the comedy of American comic strips, the styles and storylines of the year ' s productions emphasized variety. Portraying characters ranging from mice to noblemen, cast members weren ' t just playing around. Major theater productions included " Plaza Su ite, " " As You Like It, " " The Mouse Who Didn ' t Believe in Santa Claus " and " My Fair Lady. " " Plaza Suite, " written by Neil Simon, was presented in two acts and directed by Doug Ford and Sheila Hull. The first act depicted an older couple at a hotel trying to celebrate their anniversary when they both knew their marriage was almost over. The second act portrayed the emotional aspects of a cou- ple ' s daughter getting married. " There was a lot of respon- sibility, " Hull said. " Although I hadn ' t directed before, my cast was open to ideas from a new director, and they were never intimidating. " William Shakespeare ' s " As You Like It " was sponsored by the Department of Theat- er. Set in Elizabethan Eng- land, the play ' s sets, costumes and lines all had to be carefully reproduced. Lisa Smeltzer, president of Alpha Psi Omega, researched the era and compiled a study guide explaining life during Shakespearean times. " Because Elizabethan En- glish was often thought of as difficult, we prioritized to make sure the audience had a clear understanding of the story, " Smeltzer said. " Through interpretation and learning about the time peri- od, we were able to let the audience know exactly what was going on. " The story was about a girl who disguised herself as a man to escape dealing with her evil uncle. While hiding in the forest, she fell in love with a young man. Another wom- an fell in love with her, creat- ing a love triangle. Alpha Psi Omega then sponsored an annual Christ- mas show, " The Mouse Who Didn ' t Believe in Santa Claus. " After three presenta- tions on campus with approx- imately 760 in attendance, the group went on tour to Shenandoah, Iowa, and throughout Modaway County to present the play. Main characters of the play included five mice, a cat, a clock, and Santa Claus. " When we toured, it was a lot of fun to see the kids ' reactions to us, " Laura Fehr said. i i AA y Fair Lady, " a pre- V sentation of the Departments of Theater and Music, featured Noel Harri- son as Henry Higgins. The show contained songs such as " Get Me to the Church on Time, " and " I Could Have Danced All Night. " " Working with a profes- sional made me nervous in an anxious way, " Jill Shafer, who played Eliza Doolittle, said. " 1 didn ' t feel intimidat- ed because Noel was very laidback and understanding. We hit it off from the begin- ning and worked well together. " During the summer, theat- er students formed a group, the Northwest Repertory Theater, which presented three shows. " You ' re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, " " Harvey " and " Bertha, the Beautiful Type- writer Girl " were performed during June, July and Au- gust. The group was com- posed of students, staff and area residents. -continued 60 Plays I Lucy, played by Felecia Taylor, tries to win the heart of Schroeder, played by Brian Richards, in a production of " You ' re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

" It was rewarding in that it gave a taste of how a professional company would work. " ou ' re a Good Man, 1 Charlie Brown " was a story from Charles Schulz ' s " Peanuts " comic, including Charlie ' s mishaps with base- ball, school, friends and the famous " little red-haired girl. " The cast presented the per- formance with one set, which consisted of the school, baseball diamond and home scenery. Snoopy ' s antics, per- formed by Shawn Wake, were popular with the aud- ience as he assumed the fa- mous " Red Baron " stance. Other characters in the play included Lucy, Schroeder, Li- nus, Patty and the boy every- one loved to put down, Charlie Brown. " ' Charlie Brown ' was easy as far as memorizing lines, but trying to deliver lines like a little kid was a bit difficult, " Brian Richards said. " I had to think about how a child would react in the situations. " " Bertha, the Beautiful Typewriter Girl " was another show performed by N.R.T. The gay ' 90s melodrama presented the typical " hero and villain " theme, allowing the actors to portray charac- ters in a humorous fashion. To make money to save her- self and her mother from be- ing evicted. Bertha worked as a typist for Daniel Des- mond, the villain. All the evil and righteousness expected from a melodrama came to life in the show. " Everything had to be much larger because the show was a melodrama, " McSherry said. " The good characters and the bad characters were very definite. There were no mediums. " " Harvey " was a comedy about a man, his 6-foot invisi- ble rabbit and his family ' s at- tempt to commit him to an asylum.

" The Lab Series gave the students a chance to get their feet wet in many areas: deal- ing with actors, designing sets and ail the technical aspects of a production, " Dr. Charles Schultz said. " They also developed discipline. Part of directing class was practicing the art and apply- ing it in front of the public. " Part of the Lab Series in- cluded a double bill of " Breaking (Jp is Hard to Do, " directed by Ford, and " John- ny ' s Song, " directed by Jeff Haney. " Johnny ' s Song " was a readers ' theater presenta- tion about the Vietnam ex- perience that included poetry not originally written for performance. " ' Breaking Clp is Hard to Do ' took the serious subject of human relationships and looked at the lighter side, which was sometimes taken for granted, " Ford said. " Madame President, " directed by Robert Shepard, portrayed a married couple ' s poor communication as the wife became obsessed with her new role as president of her literary club. ii ' 7 oo Story " had a deep- Z-i er theme as two characters, one upper-crust and the other middle-class, were exposed to one another ' s worlds. Jim Lovell directed the play. Another show in the Lab Series was Neil Simon ' s " Gin- gerbread Lady. " Directed by Ford, the two-act play dealt with the relationship between an alcoholic mother and her teen-age daughter. Schultz felt most directors took the approach that a grade was secondary to do- ing a good show. " Directors got the thrill of seeing their project...come to life, " Schultz said. " It was a personal thing, like birthing a baby. The tears and frustra- tions were outweighed by seeing it come to life. " Producing everything from modern drama to musical comedy to Shakespeare, stu- dents found variety to be the spice of a well-rounded theat- er season.

Journal m ® On duty A resident assistant ' s job is never done remember the day I f ound out I had been hired as a resident assistant. I was excited and relieved to have made it through the interviews, but at the same time I knew there was a lot of work ahead of me. I thought I was celebrating my accomplish- ment that night, but in a way 1 was also celebrating one of my last days of freedom. Aug. 10 This was the day it all be- gan. 1 returned to Morthwest two weeks before classes started to get my residence hall ready for students. 1 didn ' t realize how many duties R.A.s had. 1 made name tags, worked on bulle- tin board displays, attended meetings and would have done more, but night set in. This was just the first day, and 1 already had the feeling it was going to be a long semester. Aug. 17 If 1 had to check in one more person 1 would have had a nervous breakdown. It was great meeting everyone, but it also really tried my patience. 1 couldn ' t help it if we didn ' t have enough elevators, there were no close parking spaces. Northwest didn ' t have laundry services, the mattresses were musty, the rooms were small, there was a waiting line to check in and there was only one cart for all the residents to carry their belongings. Calgon, take me away. Aug. 20 Well, I made it through my first floor meeting. I had an ice breaker just like the hall director suggested. 1 covered all the rules, made a short speech on get- ting involved and making the most out of college, and em- phasized who I was. Even though everybody looked at me with dumb- founded looks and the only question was " Where are the good parties? " , my first floor meeting wasn ' t so bad. Sept. 7 1 couldn ' t believe it was Labor Day and 1 was on duty. What a drag. We got a three- day weekend, and 1 had to spend it in the dorms. I got on my computer to see if anybody else was here, and 1 got a mayday distress signal from a foreign student. 1 couldn ' t respond because the rest of the message was in Polish. I decided just to go to bed. Oct. 12 1 got to bed after studying until 2 a.m., and at 3:15 — wouldn ' t you know it — 1 had a lockout. It took me 30 minutes because the resident was slightly intoxicated and couldn ' t remember what room she lived in. 1 charged $3 instead of the usual $1. Nov. 23 1 finally organized my first floor function. It was difficult thinking of a creative activity since other R.A.s seemed to have used all of them. Shan- non Bybee had a hair- braiding seminar. Brad Vogel organized the assassination game, Shawna McKeown had a pizza party, and Ron Wilson had a panel of 20 men and women answer questions on " Everything you ever wanted to know about the opposite sex. " I finally decided to have a Thanksgiving feast. 1 couldn ' t believe how successful it turned out to be. Nearly everyone helped prepare the meal, and even more helped eat it. Dec. 4 I had hoped 1 would never have to write up anyone, but 1 guess it went with the job. As I poured out that freshly made strawberry dacquiri mix, 1 wondered if the resi- dents would ever forgive me. 1 wouldn ' t have if 1 were them. Dec. 18 Everyone is gone now. The residence halls are desolate. The R.A.s are still here, though, checking rooms to make sure everything is turned off and all trash is thrown away. I confiscated one microwave, two blenders and a crock pot. My mom ' s going to have a merry Christ- mas this year. I had made it through one semester as a resident assis- tant. It wasn ' t so bad. 1 made lots of friends, and enemies, too, but 1 learned a lot about myself, as well as others. 1 think that calls for a celebra- tion. least until next s emester.

For many college students from around the world, America meant a better education and a chance to experience another culture. For some, America also meant spending several years away from home. But most foreign students felt their venture to America was worth the hardship. " 1 came to America be- cause 1 was looking for a bet- ter chance at a college edu- cation, as well as new oppor- tunities and challenges, " Bin Liang, a student from China, said. One of the biggest obsta- cles foreign students faced was the culture shock of ad- justing to the American way of life. Simple, everyday rou- tines became troublesome when trying to adjust to different customs. " The main barrier 1 faced was the American way of do- ing things, " Liang said. " The way Americans ate was dif- ferent, and the way they slept was different. " Besides changes in life- styles, foreign students also faced challenges in the class- room. Many found the rela- tionship between students and instructors different in America. " Here, everyone was more equal, " Midori Matsumoto said. " The instructors were on our level. In Japan, we had to bow when the instruc- tor came into the room. " In addition to a new class- room atmosphere, many for- eign students also had difficulty in mastering a new language. But having friends who were going through the same trials made it easier to adapt. " 1 made it a point to get to know every foreign student on campus, " Ravi Iyer, gradu- ate student from India, said. " 1 liked to help by showing them there was another per- son who was facing the same barriers they were, and I think it helped them to see how far I ' d gone. " While some foreign stu- dents could turn to their friends in times of frus- tration, others were lucky enough to have a family member sharing the Ameri- can college experience. " It was really nice having my sister here, " Archana Lik- hyani, India, said of her sis- ter, Apama. " There were a lot of things 1 could share with her. " Whether they were sharing experiences with new-found friends or their own family, foreign students found America to be a new world. Some even tried to adapt by imitating Americans. " Some foreign students gave up everything so they could be like Americans, " Liang said. " I kept my own way of understanding be- cause my purpose here was not to become an American; 1 simply wanted to leam more about this country. " Some foreign students felt each person had to make the college experience what he wanted it to be. " Foreign students had to go out and make friends to learn about American ways, " Iyer said. Regardless of how foreign students spent their time, the stereotypes they faced were hard to eliminate. " The information Ameri- can students knew about foreigners could not be ap- plied to each individual, " Liang said. " We were all different, just as Americans were all different. " Foreign students brought new ways of thinking to Northwest. Individually they faced barriers of misunder- standing. But in sharing their cultures, they introduced Northwest to the world. What could be more American? D Teresa Mattson Foreign Students 69 A Day in the Life rti ov. 5 was like any other day on cam- pus. The routine comings and goings made life at Northwest predictable, yet comforting. It was just another day: easy to forget, yet somehow special. For some faculty and staff, thousands of students.

As the sun came up, cafeterias were filled with the aroma of sizzling bacon as cooks prepared breakfast for pus Safety officers headed home after a night of patroll- ing, and instructors were al- ready hard at work writing tests. Students were also begin- ning to stir as some hit the pavement in their jogging shoes while others prepared for a day of classes. With each passing hour of the day, campus scene- ry changed.

In the library, students crammed for tests while others were at ease in their rooms watching their favorite soaps or catch- ing a quick nap. After classes, some stu- dents also enjoyed the un- seasonably warm weather by playing an impromptu foot- ball game. As night drew near and many campus em- ployees went home, activities continued. While custodians prepared classrooms for the coming day, some students went out in search of night life. Still others barracaded themselves in their dorm rooms for a late night of studying. Broadcasters signed off the radio station as other stu- dents worked night shifts at convenience or grocery stores. Students ended their day as faculty members ar- rived on campus to start another. Nov. 5 didn ' t begin with the break of day or end at sunset. To keep each facet of the University alive, the typi- cal day at Northwest was a day that neve r ended. □ Cara Moore Oatmeal with mulberries and a cup of coffee is a morning ritual for President Dean Hubbard.

Burn- awakened me at 8 a.m. My out iiad iiit, and frustrating classes were only added stress. Humorous ways of avoid- ing dreaded classes became serious. Maybe a different major would have solved the problem, or better yet, drop- ping out of school and join- ing the Peace Corps. I was tempted, but a little voice reminded me between laughter that 1 was a senior. Even God had given up on me. 1 took out the syllabus in an attempt to start from the beginning and get caught up. It was too late, though; there was a test scheduled for the next day. The instructor must have told us about it when 1 was lying on the beach. 1 comforted myself by saying a few " F " s built character.

Feb. 5: doodles, doodles and more doodles. 1 decided to join the Peace Corps in- stead of going to class. Well, the Peace Corps didn ' t want me, so that meant 1 had to talk to my professor and explain why 1 didn ' t take the test. Knowing he wouldn ' t believe my ex- cuse (or maybe he would), 1 started crying. 1 got myself together and decided to get my life back on track. 1 made a new schedule and budgeted in classes, work, meals, meet- ings, exercise and home- work. It looked really good, but 1 forgot to schedule in sleep. 1 needed to go to class- es, eat and exercise to relieve stress, so the only thing left to give up was study time, and that put me back where 1 started. 1 decided to get my life back on track the follow- ing day when 1 had more time. The next day came, and I was still just as frustrated. I went to classes, but didn ' t remember being in any of them. 1 was sure 1 went, though. How else would 1 have received my flunked quizzes? 1 began wondering if 1 was ever going to graduate. 1 would have been fine if I didn ' t have to go to classes. Panic set in and 1 thought 1 was the only one who en- countered such extreme frustration. As 1 looked around me, though, 1 saw other students staring through instructors and writ- ing letters for their notes. Hmm, was that a doodle the instructor just put on the board?

President Dean Hubbard had dreams of molding Northwest education closer to the standards of the past. The length of our vacations dwindled before our eyes as Hubbard extended the academic year. Over four years, we would have to attend classes an additional 24 weeks. Hubbard had other Culture of Quality ideas for upperclassmen.

But as the trend turned toward shorter terms, the 15- week semester evolved. The length of semes- ters in the 1940s was equal to the controversial 18-week semesters pro- posed by President Dean Hubbard under the Cul- ture of Quality. The idea behind ex- tending the length of the Gniversity ' s semesters was that more classroom and study time could improve the quality of education. Many students didn ' t see it that way, however. It became a common concern that the amount of summer and Christmas employment pay- checks would diminish, and the probability of student and instructor burnout would increase. " Around the middle of the semester, students usually stopped caring about their grades until the end of the semester, " Martin Nish said. " With longer semesters, the incentive to do well would be delayed. " The tuition increases possible under the longer semesters and the quality of the extra time were also considered. The semesters during the 1987-88 academic year consisted of 75 class days and five final exam days. The proposed increase would be gradual, but by the 1990-91 school year. North- west hoped to have a 90-day semester. The concept of an increased semester fell un- der the heading of Time on Task, one of the most controversial sections of the Culture of Quality agenda. Culture of Quality was a wide-ranging Univer- sity plan to improve and strengthen undergradu- ate programs. It consisted of ideas taken from several key books and national reports about higher education, joined with recommendations submitted by faculty, staff and students. From that, the University identified its goals and created the document, which was praised by several national education leaders. Those who reviewed it included Dr. Derek Culture of Quality " We weren ' t interested in washing anybody out.... We wanted to make sure students were ready for upper- level coursework. " President Dean Hubbard Bok, president of Har- vard University; Professor Ernest Boyer, former U.S. secretary of education; and Missouri Gov. John Ashcroft. The plan depended on results of regularly sche- duled evaluations of stu- dents. The assessment provided necessary feed- back to strengthen programs. Also, assessment test- ing was done early in the college career to ensure those who needed placement and academic assistance were receiving those services. Furthermore, students would have to pass an advanced standing test at the end of their sophomore year to ensure their performance in junior and senior level classes. " We weren ' t interested in washing anybody out, " Hubbard said. " We wanted to make sure the students were ready for upper-level course- work we envisioned. " More advanced classes fit into the program section titled Access and Academic Rigor. Un- der this, the University would attempt to pro- vide support systems for students and faculty. " We had to provide both access and rigor, " Hubbard said. " By access, we meant relatively low cost, and rigor was manifested in a vigorous academic environment. " One facet of the program already in place was the Talent Development Center. The center administered a comprehensive student assess- ment program using a variety of tests. " 1 think the plan is a good one overall, " Jane Gunja said. " Even though the burnout students would experience could defeat the purpose, other programs will help Northwest graduates compete nationally. " With the high competition level in the job market, it was obvious a quality job would de- pend on a quality education. Under Hubbard ' s proposal. Northwest made steps toward provid- ing educational opportunities for its under- graduates.D Teresa Mattson Culture of Quality 79 Time travelers Re-enactors bring Civil War to life ring ' em back alive. That was the goal of three students who were interested in bringing events of the Civil War to life. Through their efforts, audiences had the op- portunity to witness the making of history. Although Northwest had no official re-enactor group, three students were members of the Missouri Civil War Re- enactment Association. Participants from across the state with their own Civil War uni- forms and equipment appeared in recreations of the era. Re-enactors staged battles for vari- ous events, including small town celebra- tions. On a smaller scale, members of the associa- tion who attended Northwest visited history classes in full Confederate or Gnion uniform and, as soldiers, described their weapons and equipment in intricate detail. Because many authentic battle items couldn ' t survive a re-enactment, members used replicas as substitutes. While some re-enactors pur- chased paraphernalia, others researched and produced their own Civil War supplies. Using their costumes and knowledge of the era, re-enactors provided classes with an educa- tional alternative. " Seeing history come alive exposed individu- als to a different view of history, " Tom Carneal, associate professor of history, said, " it prompt- ed them to want to learn more about the era. With this type of living history, those who nor- mally wouldn ' t pick up a history book might research the topic. " Rob Wetzler, a re-enactor who attended Northwest, first became involved in the program after he saw re-enactors during a History Day on campus. " I learned a lot about the Civil War through re-enactments, " Wetzler said. " Although I start- ed the association with little knowledge of the era, others who had been with the association longer taught me what 1 needed to know to be Fine Arts and Humanities " We.. .made people feel as if they had been transported in a time machine back to the 1860s. " Rob Wetzler an authentic re-enactor. " In classes, the re- enactors informed au- diences about their cloth- ing and equipment. Re- enactors John Bell and Kevin Wells played oppo- site Wetzler as Confeder- ate soldiers. The three explained why they were on their respective sides and expressed political views typical of Civil War soldiers. " Students watching the re-enactments ap- preciated the professionalism and immediate- ly recognized the preparation that went into the presentations, " Dr. Harmon Mothershead, chair- man of the Department of History and Human- ities, said. " It allowed students to have a better understanding of a situation, whether in battle portrayal or everyday life. " In addition to providing information for au- diences, re-enactments also benefited the participants. " Re-enactors had the opportunity to be ac- curate in their performances, which required a great deal of research, " Carneal said. " They had to realize when acting that they didn ' t know who won the war. They had to be cautious when an- swering questions to ensure authenticity. " Although Wetzler learned about the Civil War through experience, he felt the public was receiving education in a realistic form. " Our re-enactments were much more authentic than the interpretation of the Civil War on television, " Wetzler said. " We gave accurate educational performances and almost made people feel as if they had been transported in a time machine back to the 1860s. The Civil War had to be one of the greatest events in history. " Through re-enactors, history came to life. Students glimpsed blue and gray uniformed soldiers and witnessed what may have been the most significant conflict in American history. Present day re-enactors allowed history to live on.D Cynthia Angeroth l 4 80 Re-enactors In full uniform, Rob Wetzler stands at attention dur- ing " A Taste of History.

Forensics included competitive speaking and interpretation of liter- ature. The team compet- ed in individual events that included informative speaking, persuasive speaking and interpretati on of prose or poetry. Communications Inc. was open to any under- graduate who wanted to join, although it was mainly for students who were already comfort- able with their speaking skills and wanted the chance to compete. " They had to be comfortable speaking and performing in public, " Craig Brown, the team ' s adviser, said. " They didn ' t participate in foren- sics unless they had strong egos. " Communications Inc. could compete against any school in the country, although their main competition was in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. The season began at the start of the academic year and ran through April. Brown said the team made great strides since its formation in 1983. It grew from eight mem- bers with only one national qualifier to 20 mem- bers with 10 national qualifiers. The group had one practice session each week. Brown said although the training didn ' t take a lot of time, it was required to build a qual- ity performance. Students found the extra time they committed to forensics had its benefits. " It was always a challenge, " Lisa Robison said. " I met different people and traveled to differ- ent schools. It was well worth the effort. " The team competed 1 4 times each year, with the average team member competing four times. Reasons students participated in foren- sics varied, although Brown noted it gave team members a chance to travel. He added it also motivated members to study outside the classroom. However, Brown also stressed the academic aspects of forensics that attracted students. " It was one of the few times they had a fairly lumanities " There was a certain high that came from performing I couldn ' t get from anything else. " Rob Nicholls standard way to compare how they did with every- one else, " Brown said. He added that the beauty of forensics was its combination of prac- fice and theory. Students found what they enjoyed most about forensics was the competition. " There was a certain high that came from per- forming 1 couldn ' t get from anything else, " Rob Nicholls said. While members who were speech and theat- er majors applied the skills they acquired through forensics competition to their own fields of study, it wasn ' t limited exclusively to students from those areas. " It gave me experience to use in law school, " Bob Barron said. Deb Swearingin, who was with the team all four years, stressed the communications skills forensics taught her. " It enhanced my speaking ability and my abil- ity to address and communicate with various types of groups, " she said. " It also strengthened my research techniques. " Northwest had strong competition in the area. Brown said. They competed against four of the top-10 schools, including the University of Nebraska and Kansas State University. Brown said doing well in the Midwest meant doing well nationally. He praised the academic quality of the foren- sics program and the improvements students had made in four years. He noted that North- west had a nationally recognized forensics team despite the size of the University and the new- ness of the program. " It was a testament to the talent and work stu- dents put in, " Brown said. Students who competed on the forensics team benefited not only from meeting new peo- ple and seeing different schools but from the experience of healthy competition. Forensics gave them the chance to refine their commu- nications skills. It also gave all the members a chance to stretch their minds outside the classroom.

He wasn ' t playing for money or even for the sake of competition. In- stead, he was simply passing the time. Then his heart began beating faster as a loud voice boomed over the inter- com, " Actors, take your places for Act 1, scene 2. " Racing out of the lounge to find his place backstage, he had to wait for his cue. But he was psyched for his per- formance after a month of rehearsing. The au- dience would put him at ease, and they ' d never know how he felt behind the scenes. Pre-performance jitters were only one aspect of life backstage. Audiences were generally un- aware of the preparation necessary to put on a performance; however, some actors consi- dered that to be an advantage. " It was more enjoyable for the audience to not know anything except what was happening on stage, " Jeff Haney said. " When I watched a performance, 1 could tell when a light burned out and where a script was cut. If the audience noticed those things, it broke the concentration on the actual performance. " Perfecting a show so even a keen eye couldn ' t see mistakes was not a quick task. Many stu- dents spent 40 to 50 hours helping construct a set. Some were also in the cast, so they re- hearsed 18 hours a week for five weeks while also helping with costumes, props and lights. Building the set was often a frustrating job that required a great deal of planning. After a design was approved, construction began in the scene shop. As each piece of the set was built, it was placed on stage. But even during a performance, backstage was chaotic as actors made costume changes and the stage manager cued sound, light tech- nicians and actors. Communication kept all areas coordinated since timing was vital in a Arts and Humanities " Our department was small enough every- one had to help, so no one became special- ized in one area. " Jon Frentrop production. Because theater re- quired a wide range of skills, students needed to be experienced in each. In fact, theater majors were required to learn all areas, including props, costumes, lighting and set construction. " Our department was small enough everyone had to help, so no one became specialized in one area, " Jon Frentrop said. Theater students not only gained experience from class projects and performances, but they also benefited from helping touring companies set up for plays in the Performing Arts Center. However, if the theater was needed by any- one outside the department, students had to work around it, which sometimes meant put- ting rehearsals and set construction on hold. " That was a problem with performing in a multipurpose facility, " Annette Filippi said. " We had to tear down the set immediately after a performance because we never knew who would need it the next day. " Tearing down sets brought mixed emotions for cast members. Each play was unique, in that the cast would never be the same, causing depression for some of those involved. " 1 told myself it wasn ' t really over because I was young and could do it again, " Haney said. But to keep up with the pace of the theater, actors often had to close a show and start re- hearsals the next day for another. That meant the cycle started again: auditions, rehearsals, set building, costume making and even pre- performance jitters. However, the many phases of theater includ- ed more than work. Although theater students spent numerous hours behind the scenes per- fecting all facets of a production, their stress changed to gratification when the curtain closed and applause echoed through the theater.

As home of the Col- lege of Education and laboratory school, the Horace Mann building underwent several major renovations. One of the most notable changes was the rededication of the structure as Everett Brown Education Hall. The building was named for State Rep. Brown in recognition of his service to the state and the Maryville area. " When the Board of Regents passed the reso- lution to rename Horace Mann as Brown Hall, it was to recognize a man who had served the University and education in general for over 50 years, " Bob Henry, University public relations officer, said. " Brown had a unique combination of service ranging from public school teacher to University administrator. " An alumnus of Northwest, Brown was an ad- ministrator at the University for three decades. At the time Brown Hall re-opened for classes, the representative was serving his sixth term in the Missouri House. Although the structure was renamed, the lab school in the building was still referred to as Horace Mann Learning Center. Along with the new name, the school received a new look. The extensive renovations cost $1.8 million. The building was made ac- cessible to handicapped students, and offices were centralized for the College of Education. Other additions included a Resource Center containing a library and a computer lab. Obser- vation rooms were built in many of the lab school classrooms, as well. " The entire faculty and administration, in- cluding elementary and college teachers, had input on the design of the building, " Ryan said. " The concepts of the school and college were integrated into the renovation. " Most of the additions made in the building improved teacher preparation programs, espe- cially in elementary education. Some of the most obvious additions were the observation rooms where education majors could watch Education " My goal... was for each child to have a success every day. With the new building, it was possible. " Jo Ann Marion classes through one-way mirrors. " The observation rooms really helped, " Jo Ann Marion, first level teacher, said. " They offered college students a chance to get a better look at what really hap- pened in the classroom. But that shouldn ' t have stopped them from sit- ting with the little wiggle- bodies. There was no better feeling than having a child sitting beside you, learning along with you. " After 20 years of teaching at Horace Mann, Marion was glad to see the improvements. She, along with other teachers, appreciated the air conditioning and larger classrooms. The teachers didn ' t take for granted even the slight- est improvements, especially after the condi- tions they worked under before the remodeling. " It was terrible, " Marion said. " 1 would open a closet, and the walls would start to come apart. There was always a musty smell and plenty of bugs. After the renovation, there was new paint, carpeted halls and sinks in the classrooms. " Not only did teachers notice the difference in the renovated structure, but elementary stu- dents noticed, too. " The rooms were a lot different, " third level student Laura Dewhirst said. " There wasn ' t any color before, but after we moved back, there was new paint and carpeting. The new library was nice and big, too. " With the additions and renovations, a new feeling toward education emerged, as well. Tra- ditions of excellence in education continued, but there was more motivation to get the best from the laboratory school. " My goal in teaching was for each child to have a success every day, " Marion said. " With the new building, it was possible. " Whether it was viewed as the home of a lab school or of the College of Education, Brown Hall served its purpose. With a little paint here and carpeting there, the school received a new name, a new look and a new atmosphere while maintaining its reputation as a home of learn- ing for both elementary and University students.

And so they did. They were gathered in Martindale Gym not to do lay-ups or run laps, but to dance, dance, dance. Social Dance class offered students and faculty members the op- portunity to learn many dances, including the Fox Trot, the Cotton-Eyed Joe, the Conga, the Jerk, the Twist, the Jitter- bug, the Texas Two-Step and the Bird. At the beginning of the semester, students were able to choose from a list of dances they were interested in learning. Then they learned, in chronological order, dances from the 1920s to the ' 80s. " it was fun to learn dances like the Texas Two- Step and classics like the Fox Trot, " Matthew Bachali said. Learning different dances could be quite a " feat " at times. Toes got stepped on, palms got sweaty and the beat sometimes got lost in the confusion of learning a new dance, but students were able to laugh at themselves when they got caught up in a sea of left feet. " 1 really got to know the people in the class, " Suzanne Mann said. " There was a lot of com- radery as we danced and laughed with each other, but it was all in fun. " While the music of Willie Nelson or The Beach Boys echoed through the gym, it was clear the class was an active one that offered something for everyone. Because the class was interesting and enter- taining, it offered a change of pace for m any students. " Some of the guys were good dancers, " Michelle Oliaro said. " I loved to dance and learned a lot. If students learned the steps, they could follow the dances and enjoy themselves. " Oliaro added that current dances didn ' t en- tail many moves that required a partner, but the dances in class used steps that got both part- ners involved. Students took the class for many reasons. Education " There was a lot of comradery in the class as we danced and laughed with each other. " Suzanne Mann Some simply enjoyed dancing, while others had more specific objec- tives for signing up. Mann and her fiance, Lanny Lewis, took the class to learn older dances for a wedding. Mann felt the class was more enjoyable because they took it together. Regardless of why Stu- dents took the class, they soon developed favorite dances. The faster dances and ' 60s dances were the most popular. " The ' 60s type of dance had certainly be- come popular because of entertainment, " Ann Brekke, one Social Dance instructor said. " There were even nightclubs that were exclu- sively ' 60s. " Brekke added the Latin-American influence was especially great because of popular movies like " La Bamba " and " Dirty Dancing. " Having gained more confidence in the dances of the ' 20s, to the ' 60s and on to the ' 80s, students grew more comfortable around each other. Whether this was because of time spent practicing together or just the free at- mosphere of the class, the result was the birth of friendships. Brekke said one couple from a Social Dance class ended up getting married. Even though men weren ' t plentiful, the short- age didn ' t disrupt the casual atmosphere of the class. For everyone to have a partner, some girls were forced to learn the lead. Faculty members Dr. Jim Smeltzer, Dr. David Easteria and Dr. John Rhoades were interest- ed in the dance class. Brekke said they took the class for fun, but they danced with students when there was an uneven number. Brekke ad- ded that having them in class was fun and help- ful because they could demonstrate dances. Perfecting their Conga and Tango, students gained a sense of accomplishment and lasting friendships. They boogied, twisted and jerked. They learned social dance steps while clapping to the rhythm and swinging their partners to the beat. From beginning to end, they danced, danced, danced.

For the College of Education, im- provement began with the renovation of Horace Mann and its rededica- tion as Everett Brown Hall. More importantly though, was its emphasis on Culture of Quality. There was a striving for better programs and overall progression for the future of higher edu- cation. This was the University ' s Culture of Quality, a five-year master plan to improve edu- cation. The state attempted to upgrade pro- grams both in elementary and secondary schools and in the training of teachers. That was where Northwest ' s College of Edu- cation seemed to excel. Programs in the college were approved and accredited by both the State of Missouri and the National Council for Ac- creditation of Teacher Education. The college received a letter from the State of Missouri approving programs up to 1992. This accreditation was important because graduates had regional approval by the state. " Being approved by both really meant a lot, " Richard New, chairman of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, said. " It was espe- cially important to graduates because schools from all over the cou ntry came to us looking for graduates of our college. " Several changes occurred within the college as a part of the improvement in University pro- grams. The college was in the process of devis- ing a test for students to take during their sophomore year for entry into the college. Another certification test for graduating seniors, was set to come out in 1990. Other revisions had been proposed by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education, but had not been implemented. These included competency tests for teaching practicums and general requirement changes. One change was the length of actual student teaching time. For elementary, student teach- ing was increased to a full semester, while secondary was increased to 10 weeks. This ex- " Schools from all over the country came to us looking for gradu- ates of our college. " Richard New tended teaching time was thought to give stu- dents needed practice in their field. " I thought more class- room experience was needed, especially for the high school level, " Beth Behrends said. " It gave students more time with one set style. " Teacher certification was another area that changed. Lifetime certificates were to be issued through August 1988, but teachers certified af- ter that date were required to recertify. " It was good they were not issuing life cer- tificates because it forced teachers to keep up- to-date, " Behrends said. The new requirements upgraded the College of Education, but they also better educated and prepared students, as well. " in the long run, it benefited students, " Behrends said. " Taking the test could ensure they could get into the College of Education. " The College of Education continued to offer innovative programs like micro-teaching. The program was adopted from Stanford Universi- ty and brought to Northwest by Dr. Bill Hinck- ley in 1967. Micro-teaching groups usually con- sisted of four students and a supervisor. The su- pervisor demonstrated teaching skills, such as questioning and class discussion techniques, and the students practiced the skills in a simu- lated classroom setting filled with college stu- dents posing as high school students. The sessions were videotaped so students could actually see themselves teaching a class and receive feedback from their peers and su- pervisor. Hinckley felt the program was effec- tive because it allowed students to demonstrate and master the teaching skills they learned. As the College of Education pushed to keep its tradition of quality by approving changes and revisions, it also became part of the Universi- ty ' s Master Plan for higher learning in a grow- ing world of education. With the traditional requirements and revi- sions, the College of Education ' s program moved into the future with its continued stan- dard of high quality teaching.

Thoughts of becoming a famous designer and creating a wardrobe with his name on the label rushed through his mind. Then, like a stranger in a for- eign land, he placed his hand firmly on the door and walked into the classroom, searching for a friendly face in a room full of women. David Clark, like the three other men with home economics majors, learned to overcome stigmas and stereotypes to earn a degree. Clark ' s concern for his appearance and his interest in clothes prompted him to choose a major in fashion merchandising. Gnlike Clark, Ron Foster ' s interests were cen- tered around people, children in particular. While growing up, Foster saw himself as a brother to younger children. As a result, he decided to pursue a career dealing with young people. The other two men involved in the depart ment were Todd Schweizer and Brian McComb. Schweizer was interested in fashion merchan dising, and McComb was involved in nutrition Because the men were often alone in class rooms of women, they had to endure pressures from individuals outside the department and adapt to the unequal balance of men and women. " I was intimidated at first, but I didn ' t let any- one bother me, " Foster said. The men said adjusting was easier because their instructors and classmates recognized their place in the department. Beth Goudge, a home economics instructor, saw an advantage to having men in her classes. " They added a male ' s perspective to class- room discussions, which was beneficial to all the students, " Goudge said. Not only did the men add a valuable aspect to classroom discussions, but they also learned important social skills while interacting with women in their classes. " I was extremely shy, a definite wallflower where girls were concerned, " Foster said. " I Agriculture, Science and Technology " I worked hard toward my degree. Home Eco- nomics wasn ' t.. .a pud major. " David Clark didn ' t know how to meet people at first, but after a while I felt at ease. " The ratio of men to women involved in the Home Economics De- partment was one to 50. That meant the classes in the department usually consisted of 25 or 30 women to one man. The imbalance often placed the men in the center of attention. Being in the midst of things didn ' t seem to bother the men, however, because instructors and fellow classmates made efforts to include them as part of the group. " Everybody was nice, so it wasn ' t bad being the only guy in a class, " Schweizer said. Although they were in majors that had been dominated by women in the past, men broke away from traditional beliefs that home eco- nomics was centered around pots, pans and sewing needles. While some outside the department thought the men had chosen easy majors, the men felt they worked as hard as anyone. In fact, a depart- mental policy required a 94 percent for an " A. " " I worked hard toward my degree, " Clark said. " Home Economics wasn ' t for anyone looking for a pud major. I don ' t even think people were aware of the opportunities the department had to offer. " Restaurant management, diatetics, child de- velopment, family consultation and sales were just a few of the careers men in the Home Eco- nomics Department could consider. Dr. Frances Shipley, chairman of the Home Economics Department, said many thought of home economics as a teaching-oriented major, when that was one of the least popular career routes for graduates. Despite their initial feelings of insecurity, the men found a sense of belonging in the depart- ment and in their career fields. The 1980s brought open-minded attitudes that allowed people to deviate from traditional roles. As stereotypes crumbled, jobs traditionally be- lieved to be women ' s were opening to men: men like Clark, Foster, McComb and Schweizer.

While " aggies " were stereotyped as be- ing country hicks, their academic department was gaining national recognition in highly technical fields. " Some people had a certain image of aggies, and not all of us were like that, " Chestina Mahurin said. " Being a girl didn ' t free me of those im- ages either. It was just my way of life because that was the way 1 was brought up. " Despite these stereotypes, however, aggies were involved in seve ral high-tech research projects. Dr. Dennis Padgitt brought one new idea to the University. Through experiments with genetics, he was able to establish an embryo transfer laboratory. This program involved pur- chasing cattle semen for artificial breeding. Although the rate of embryonic death was high, Padgitt said those that survived were of high quality. " We tried to better genetics by taking an em- bryo from one cow and placing it in another, " Padgitt said. While the embryo transfer laboratory was working with genetics. Dr. C.K. Allen estab- lished the Bull Test Station. The University brought in bulls from all over the country and put them through tests on feed efficiency and rate of gain. The owners paid for costs, and the students held a sale at the end of the tests. If the bull did well on the tests, it brought more money. The costs were withheld from the money earned, and the rest went directly to the owners. " I got hands-on experience by taking care of the animals, " James Husz said. Boars were also put through similar tests in Agriculture, Science . and Technology " Some people had a certain image of ag- gies, and not all of us were like that. " Chestina Mahurin a station run by Dr. Harold Brown. He said the owners were pleased with the rate of gain, and the boars usually went back to commercial farms for breeding. " The Boar Test Station provided students with a testing and learning tool, not only for producers, but also for the Universi- ty, " Charlie Wilson said. In addition to these highly technical programs, the department managed three farming projects for Northwest ' s Center for Applied Research, including broccoli, woodgrass and potato crops. The emphasis of these projects was on alternative crops. The broccoli project involved local farmers and students. Farmers grew the broccoli, and students inspected it for insects. " We found a buyer in Kansas City who would buy any broccoli we produced at the same price they usually paid, " Dr. Duane Jewell, chairman of the Department of Agriculture, said. " It turned out to be cheaper because they didn ' t have to pay a large amount for transporting it. " Another alternative crop was woodgrass, which had two useful purposes. This wood sup- plied 75 percent of the University ' s thermal energy. It was also used as a source of cattle feed, which helped local farmers cut costs. When Frito-Lay Company was faced with a potato shortage, the University helped solve the problem by growing quality chipping potatoes. The potatoes could be used before August, when crops in other states stopped producing. The Department of Agriculture became in- volved in several major technological advances. With the development of many new projects, students received hands-on training and ex- perience: not just in farming, but in high-tech agriculture. D Connie Ferguson High-tech Farming 95 Directive measures Mapping interns plot course for careers et the coordinates. Chart the course. These were just a few of the phrases used by the cartographic intern program which provided students with hands-on experience un- available at any other university. Established in 1985, the program became the first in the country for on- campus cartographic in- terns. It was designed to provide training in technical mapping, cartog- raphy, computer cartography and remote sens- ing for geoscience majors. " 1 got interested in cartography my freshman year, " Vicki Fyle said. " I planned to go into car- tography, and getting involved in the program was the best way to get experience. " Students took various mapping classes to de- velop skills for the program. " I had a class before 1 joined the program, and it helped peak my interest in the mapping area, " Ed Fleming said. " I joined the program to improve my knowledge. " Beginning classes dealt with the historical de- velopment of maps and the different map types. From there, students produced various types of maps, including property maps from deed data. " The most interesting aspect of the program was applying skills and compiling them, " Flem- ing said. More advanced classes involved the science of photogrammetry and remote sensing. Pho- togrammetry entailed using aerial photos and surveys to create maps, while remote sensing included satellite reproductions of the earth ' s surface. In addition to using photographs to produce maps, students also used computers. One course, Geographical Information Systems, al- lowed cartog raphers to produce and display maps using the computer. Results were print- ed on the computer in a variety of colors. " We acted as a subcontractor, " Steve Fox said. " Pictures were sent from people with the con- Agriculture, Scienci and Technology " We raised over $100,000 from the in- terns.. .which showed we could do a lot without investment. " Dr. Donald Hagan tract along with legal descriptions of what was to be done. " The final stage of the intern program was com- pleted by students work- ing in Geotechnical Serv- ices. Mapping projects were contracted from the government, businesses and industries. They were brought to the Geo- technical Services for completion by interns. The experience helped prepare students for their future careers. " All 23 students who completed the program were placed in graduate programs, in cartogra- phy or remote sensing careers upon gradua- tion, " Dr. Donald Hagan, chairman of the Department of Geology Geography, said. With almost 100 students involved, the pro- gram became the most rapidly growing aca- demic area on campus and offered many career options. " I was in the National Guard and wanted to get into engineering, " Fleming said. " I wanted to use my cartography skills in defense mapping. " Despite the growing number of students in- volved, the program received no Gniversity funding. However, the department faculty mem- bers were determined to make the program work. " We raised over $100,000 from the interns who worked for contracted clients, which showed we could do a lot without investment, " Hagan said. Despite the lack of University funding, the Department of Geology Geography continued to set standards no other university could match, with students coordinating experience and knowledge to meet the demands of a grow- ing field. Drawing from their academic backgrounds, cartographic interns gained experience in the real world while mapping out their futures and charting their careers.

Photo by Mark Strecker iir mm KMmam Investing in competition Students take stock in profitable game tudents always seem- ed to be at the bottom of the economic ladder. Even though they were preparing for a time when they could make major investments, most didn ' t have the money or the knowledge to invest while in college. By play- ing the Stock Market Game offered by the Center for Economic Education, however, stu- dents didn ' t need to be wealthy or experienced. By making mock in- vestments, players got the first-hand experience they needed without risking hard-earned money. Originally developed in Canada, the Stock Market Game was brought to the CJnited States in 1976. At Northwest, the game was directed by Dr. Ray Brown. " It was our second year involved with the Stock Market Game, " Brown said. " We took over the game because it was a good opportu- nity for us. " The Stock Market Game was played by all types of people, including high school and University students. The game involved them in situations that promoted a better understand- ing of the economy. Played in 10-week sessions each semester, the Stock Market Game provided students with $100,000 in computer money to buy stocks. If they needed extra money, they could borrow it or sell stocks, as if it were real money in the real world. Participants recorded their predictions and registered them with the Northwest Center for Economic Education. With the large influx of material. Brown hired students to keep track of players ' stock activi- ties on computers. " We did a lot of the office work once we received the investment sheets, " Lisa Sharp said. " We sorted all the information and put it into the computer. " After participants selected stocks, the office provided them with computer printouts repres- enting their portfolios. Besides heading the Stock Market Game at Northwest, Brown taught the game to high Business, Government and Computer Science " 1 learned... how to read the market listings and make transactions. " Annette Daubendiek school teachers so they could incorporate it in their classrooms. " At the start of the games, 1 conducted workshops to show teachers how to use it in their classes, " Brown said. " The teachers in the public schools just went wild with it. " With such positive reactions to the game, Brown made plans to generate even more in- terest and recruit teachers. " 1 tried to get a workshop started for people who just wanted to come in and ask questions about the stock market, " Brown said. One of the assets of the Stock Market Game was that anyone with interest could play, not just economics majors. " 1 heard someone talking who had played it, and 1 thought it sounded interesting, " Annette Daubendiek said. " 1 learned a lot from the game, like how to read the market listings and make transactions. " Effort and knowledge in the competifion paid off, and teams were rewarded at the end of the 10-week sessions. Participants were ranked by how much they earned in their investments. In spring, three banquets were held through- out the state, and the teams that hadn ' t lost their shirts were awarded plaques and certificates. Because interest in the Stock Market Game ran high, plans were underway to develop it further. " Our goal was to have a higher educafion competition, like with Tarkio, Missouri Western and the different schools that played the game, " Brown said. Making it to intercollegiate competition was less important than the experience participants gained, however. College students who found themselves at the bottom of the financial ladder could learn through the Stock Market Game how to climb the rungs and reach financial stability. The stock market could make or break a person, but the Stock Market Game gave participants the chance to learn before making those first big investments.

Photo by Mark Strecker 1 00 Computer Science Reprogrammed Department merger prompts cooperation veryone knew about the Electronic Campus, but a less publicized computer change came with the re- organization of the Department of Com- puter Science. With some reshuffling and ad- ditions, it became the Department of Com- puter Science Informa- tion Systems. The new department was the product of reor- ganization at the college level. Before the change, the department belonged to the Col- lege of Science, Mathematics and Computer Sciences. With reorganization, it became a part of the College of Business, Government and Computer Science. The reorganization didn ' t drastically affect any existing programs, but administrators felt it improved them. Dr. Merry McDonald, chair- man of the Department of Computer Science Information Systems, noted the depart- ment had gained a broader base, and sections could support each other more easily. " The merger allowed us to cooperate and support more programs, " McDonald said. " We could share the expertise of the faculty better. " McDonald felt that the reorganization was a positive change for the University because there was no longer competition among departments. " It put us in an environment where we could work together more cooperatively, " McDonald said. McDonald admitted some faculty members were apprehensive about the changes in the departments. But their fears proved to be unfounded. " Everybody was a little surprised how well it worked, " McDonald said. " They worked hard to make the transition easier. " McDonald said the change didn ' t affect the students as much as it did the faculty, and she saw no negative student reaction. Business, Government and Computer Science " The merger allowed us to cooperate and support more pro- grams. " Dr. Merry McDonald I " They were very much aware of it but not overly concerned about it, " McDonald said. Computer science stu- dents agreed with McDonald. Most of them weren ' t worried about the reorganization before it happe ied, and saw little change after it occurred. " 1 thought computer science might have be- come more business or- iented, " David Bridges said. Other students saw the change as one in name only. " It didn ' t make a whole lot of difference to me, " David Steinhauser said. " It changed the ti- tle, but it didn ' t change the programs. " Steinhauser assumed the changes were at the administrative level where they weren ' t visi- ble to students. He saw no major changes with the new department. Incoming freshmen weren ' t concerned about the reorganization. Sue Reynolds knew about the changes, but she said they didn ' t worry her. " 1 came to Morthwest because it had a good computer science program, " Reynolds said. Two buildings shared the department, which may have been another reason people didn ' t notice the change. Computer science was in Garrett Strong, while computer management and office administration were in Colden Hall. This involved a lot of running back and forth for faculty members. " We got a lot of exercise, " McDonald said. The reorganization that created the Depart- ment of Computer Science Information Sys- tems wasn ' t obvious or dramatic. It was a sub- tle change that helped the University by improv- ing existing departments and programs and al- lowing more faculty to share their expertise by working together. Along with the Electronic Campus, it seemed to be a natural. D Jeanne Bryson Computer Science 101 Electing to vote Government teachers battle student apathy M uch had come to pass since the time voting was done by a show of hands. Jesse Jaci son was the first black politician to campaign for the pres- idency and Geraldine Ferraro was the first woman to run for vice president. Clint East- wood was elected mayor of Carmel, Calif., and Ronald Reagan, once a Hollywood actor, had be- come president of the United States. Despite those surprises, one thing hadn ' t changed during the political upheaval of the 1980s: students ' voting apathy. Among the mere 38 percent of the voting population that showed up to cast their ballots in the 1986 elections, the age group from 18 to 25 was the least influential in the outcome of elections. " There was a problem with voting turnout here, but the problems were similar to most campuses anywhere, " Dr. Robert Dewhirst, as- sistant professor of government, said. Voter apathy was a problem some students thought needed to be faced. Groups like the Young Republicans and Young Democrats, as well as classes like American Government, promoted the importance of voting through mock elections and class discussions. " I gave my students a little pep talk about vot- ing to increase their interest, " Dewhirst said. " I liked to harass them by telling them people in nursing homes were more willing to vote. " The purpose of mock elections was to teach students about the electoral process. These elections were held on campus, and the candi- dates campaigned, just like in real elections. " Most of the students in my classes liked do- ing the mock elections, " Dr. Richard Fulton, professor of government, said. " They were able to get involved in them, and they could see what kinds of processes took place in a real election. " Class discussions and mock elections sought to inform students about voting and its impor- tance, but lack of information was only one cause of student apathy. College students were too worried about grades, classes and their so- cial lives to get caught up in politics. " 1 would have voted, but I didn ' t feel I had enough time to be a responsible voter, " Lorri Business, Government and Computer Science " We acted like we didn ' t care, so we didn ' t get the privi- leges.. .we could have. " Kelli Blackmore May said. " I didn ' t spend enough time getting to know the candidates to make an educated decision. " Unconcerned attitudes could have come from a lack of information, as was often the case with campus elections. Many students simply voted for the candidate they knew best. Some students weren ' t concerned about national politics, and many didn ' t register to vote. With other things to spend their energies on, they left it up to older citizens to decide their future. Some saw this indifference as a poor reflection on college students. " 1 thought it was bad, " Kelli Blackmore said. " We acted like we didn ' t care, so we didn ' t get the privileges from the government we could have. Politicians didn ' t worry too much about aiming their campaigns toward us because we didn ' t vote. " Another problem students faced was decid- ing whether to vote in Maryville or in their home towns. Even though it was possible for them to register and vote in Nodaway County, many felt like they would rather vote at home. " Students often said they didn ' t vote because they weren ' t at home, and there were too many hassles involved in voting away from home, " Dewhirst said. " The truth was that those in the same age group living at home didn ' t turn out either. " Despite apathy on some students ' part, other Northwest students who were registered voters made the effort to research the candidates and cast their ballots, especially when issues con- cerned them. " 1 voted whenever I had the chance, " Ted Snider said. " It was everyone ' s right to have a say in what went on in the government. " In some countries, the right to vote was basic- ally an act of agreeing with the candidates the government chose. But in the United States, citizens enjoyed many freedoms those in other countries didn ' t, and the right to suffrage was one of them. However, through various classes and promotions, students became aware that voting was a right not to be taken for granted.

One topic of discussion was Hubbard ' s Culture of Quality plan.

Hubbard hoped the bypass would bring more students to Northwest. Photo by Kevin Fullerton 1 04 President Board of Regents :. split decision Up Culture of Quality inspires praise and protest t was one of the most controversial documents ever to hit the University, a piece of work praised in both the governor ' s of- fice and the halls of Har- vard. But for many Northwest students and faculty members, Culture of Quality simply meant longer semesters and tougher requirements. Throughout Novem- ber, petitions were circu- lated and action groups were organized. The spotlight shifted from the Electronic Campus as the proposal became hot news for area media. Yet it seemed as though the story could have burned the proposal ' s primary backers: Presi- dent Dean Hubbard and the Board of Regents. The main protest against the Culture of Qual- ity stemmed from its Time on Task section, which proposed increasing the length of each semester to 1 8 weeks. Students worried the ex- tended calendar would cut into summer earn- ings, while faculty members seemed concerned about both their salaries and the quality of class- room time. " 1 thought there was some trade-off involved in the longer calendar, " Faculty Senate Presi- dent Duane Jewell said. " We were afraid there would be a point when both students and faculty members would suffer burnout. " Jewell also said that in response to a survey on the extended semester, faculty members were more concerned about the impact on stu- dents ' financial needs than on their own pay. Still, the issue of increasing salaries for more teaching time was important. Hubbard felt that was a primary motive behind faculty resistance to the plan. " If I tempered the quality of what I did based upon what people were willing to pay, I would have gotten out of education, " Hubbard said. Still, the president and the Board were will- ing to compromise with faculty members who claimed that the process in approving the Cul- ture of Quality was faulty. In December, they acted to allow more review and discussion of the document with the faculty. Most adminis- trators and faculty members felt the Regents ' President Board of Regents " For the Culture of Quality to work.. .stu- dents, the faculty and the Regents all had to work together. " Edward Douglas move cleared the air for further input. " We accepted the premise that more time in class would mean a better education, " Regent Edward Douglas said, " if we provided a better ex- perience. would ulti- mately pay off in the jobs our graduates received. For the Culture of Quali- ty to work, though, stu- dents, the faculty and the Regents all had to work together. " Other aspects of the program received much less attention, but Hubbard said they were just as important as the extended semester. He felt the most influential move toward the Culture of Quality was the establishment of criteria for what students should gain from their educa- tions. The goals included achievement in writ- ing, reasoning, conceptual skills and cultural knowledge. " It gave me a great deal of confidence in the ultimate outcome of the process, " Hubbard said. " I thought inertia was really on our side to make substantive changes. " Those changes included a requirement for evaluation after a student ' s sophomore year to determine if he was ready to advance to upper- division courses, a senior seminar and cultural programs such as discussion forums and cross- disciplinary learning communities, in all, 20 ob- jectives were to be acted upon during the year. Whether the changes drew praise or protest, however, Hubbard and the Regents seemed to feel they were doing what was best for the University. " Some people said that when we changed things, it implied we hadn ' t been doing a good job, " Hubbard said. " But we didn ' t have to be sick to get better. " Whether or not the Culture of Quality proved to be a panacea for higher education, one thing was clear: the president and the Regents were making a difference in the lives of students and faculty members, and they were willing to stand behind their program, no matter how unpopu- lar it became.

But for cabinet members, participation in activities never stopped. After leaving campus, they had family obliga- tions, church functions, school activities and community organizations waiting for them. Most members felt it was difficult to maintain an even balance between family, work and com- munity affairs. Being active in all three areas minimized free time. Their jobs were often directly connected to Maryville, so separation of work and commu- nity service was difficult. Community involvement, they felt, was vital to Maryville. Without volunteers, growth would be impossible, and the University ' s success de- pended on a thriving community. Dr. Bob Bush Dr. Bob Bush served in a number of commu- nity organizations, including the Maryville Air- port Board. The group extended the airport ' s runway, providing Maryville with a high-quality airfield. Bush also participated in the Health Emer- gency Lifeline Project, which distributed com- munication devices to the homes of elderly resi- dents. If senior citizens needed medical help or wanted someone to check something in their homes, they pushed a button that rang St. Fran- cis Hospital. The hospital then notified volun- teers to go to the senior citizen ' s home. " Working for Maryville was a debt all of us owed, " Bush said. " Volunteer work was what made the community unique. No matter who we were, we needed to add to the quality of life. " Bush was also involved in the Shepherd ' s Center, which was an organization for retired individuals. Administrators " Each individual was responsible to the community.... It was his responsibility to as- sist with participation. " Warren Gose " The Shepherd ' s Cen- ter provided an educa- tional fellowship for peo- ple, " Bush said. " The group added quality to the community. It helped me gain a different per- spective on what the senior years should be like. " Bush hoped to see the community seek one goal: providing an at- mosphere conducive to keeping young people in Maryville. " That would have been an ultimate commu- nity involvement: for Maryville to catch a dream and see it through, " Bush said. " The end product of assisting others was to make them feel important. " Dr. Richard Dumont Serving as Rotary Club International ' s local chairman to raise $2,000 for polio prevention was one of Dr. Richard Dumont ' s activities out- side the University. Dumont believed the project was one of the club ' s most important undertakings. " There was a cure for polio, and there was no excuse for children in other countries to suffer from the disease when we could supply a cure, " he said. He also was a member of the Maryville In- dustrial Advisory Council that included busi- nesses and industries in the community. They met to discuss topics of mutual concern and promoted the economic well-being of the community. To gain more knowledge about the area, Dumont also participated in the Farm-City Ex- change Program sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. He went to an area farm for a day, and worked side-by-side with the owner. In turn, the farmer spent a day in Dumont ' s office. " The exchange program widened m y views of life on a farm, " Dumont said.

Photo by Kevin Fullerton 108 Administrators Not just 9 to 5 had spent most of my life in small towns, I hadn ' t been on farms much. " Dumont believed his involvement in the com- munity was vital in keeping him sensitive to the changing needs of Maryville residents. " Involvement with community activities was necessary to be in tune with citizens ' needs, " Dumont said. " The University was a public- supported institution, so we needed to find out how we could serve our constituents better. " Warren Gose Among Warren Gose ' s involvements with Maryville was membership in the local Rotary Club International. A service organization for the community, the club hosted an annual career day at which high school juniors could visit the University and meet people in various occupations. The organization also had at least one pro- gram a year that included a guest speaker about service, either on the local or national level. Gose felt members of each community were responsible for what occurred within it. " Each individual was responsible to the com- munity in which he lived, " Gose said. " It was his responsibility to assist with participation. " Gose ' s other main involvement with the com- munity was as presiding elder at the Reor- ganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Serving his fourth year as presiding elder, Gose ' s duties included scheduling Sun- day and Wednesday services. " The scheduling was often hectic when 1 was involved with so many activities, " Gose said. " 1 had a great staff that picked up the load when things got hectic. " Gose attributed much of the community ' s success to volunteer work, which he felt was vital. " Everyone should have shown an interest in the community at some point, " Gose said. " Without volunteer work, a lot of programs wouldn ' t be successful. " Bob Henry Bob Henry preferred not to think of his com- munity involvements as " outside " activities. Rather, he chose to incorporate them in his duties to Maryville and the University. " We didn ' t have a closed society, so partici- pation in the growth of the community was a real responsibility for me, " Henry said. " It was important for me to be involved and use my ta- lents to help it improve. " Among his involvements was participation in the United Way Campaign that raised $100,000 for 24 area job service agencies. " Each person needed to fulfill a need through contributing to the community, " Henry said. " Then I received a double reward because when the need was fulfilled for me, one was fulfilled for someone else, too. " Besides serving on the board of elders at the Hope Lutheran Church, Henry was a member of the Lions Club for more than 10 years. Henry was also an active member of the Maryville High School Athletic Booster Club. Henry helped launch two campaigns to resur- face the track and construct a multipurpose room for the school. " Volunteerism was what made us a great na- tion, " Henry said. " It created a spirit where peo- ple contributed time and energy to things without direct rewards. Their reward was pure- ly emotional. " Henry felt the Maryville community was one in which he was proud to participate. " 1 received more from the community than 1 gave it, " Henry said. " It was good to me and my family, and it provided the kind of environ- ment we needed. " Dr. John Mees Among Dr. John Mees ' contributions was serving as University representative for the Adult Education Board. He also participated in the Lions Club as program chairman. Mees stressed the importance of involvement even if there was limited time to contribute. " It was important for people to be involved in whichever community they lived, " Mees said. " 1 was able to show interest in Maryville on a daily basis because my job required it. " Mees was also an elder at the First Christian Church. He served as chairman of the board when the congregation renovated the church. " Serving on the board was a challenge and a great experience, " Mees said. " When projects were challenging and successful, it was satisfy- ing to work on them. It was also gratifying to see the University and community work together.

" It was important to become involved in com- munity affairs to develop some sense of pride and accomplishment, " Mees said.

Time was not only devoted to adminis- trative duties, but also to classes, where deans kept in touch with the es- sence of education: teaching. Dr. Gerald Brown, dean of the College of Agriculture, Science and Technology, taught two agriculture courses. Dr. Joseph Ryan, dean of the College of Education, taught Educational Research, a graduate class. Robert Sunkel, dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, taught art history and Art Ap- preciation. Dr. Ron DeYoung, dean of the Col- lege of Business, Government and Computer Science, taught a course every third semester. " I enjoyed teaching because it was important to remember the problems of the classroom, " Ryan said. " We were here for students, so 1 felt it was necessary to stay in tune with them. " Sunkel chose to teach art history because he had seen many of the works he used in class. Therefore, he felt he could add insight to the lectures. " I liked the idea of helping people learn, and I tried to instill the idea in my students to keep learning even after they were done with a class, " Sunkel said. " Teaching also gave me an excuse to keep researching and learning. " Deans acted as advocates for students and faculty, helping maintain good student teacher relationships. Unfortunately, as Sunkel ex- plained, most student contact didn ' t occur un- less there was a problem. The deans did try, however, to stay in touch with students in their colleges, whether it was through teaching a required course or simply by walking around meeting students. Deans " We were here for stu- dents, so I felt it was necessary to stay in tune with them. " Dr. Joseph Ryan One of the deans ' most important academ- ic duties was review of curriculum. Each felt it was necessary to under- stand what changes were needed in their colleges. " Education was under a massive curriculum review, " Ryan said. " We needed to ask what changes were necessary and whether classes were relevant. " Besides determining the curriculum of the colleges, budgeting was another responsibility. To help them with the process, deans received input from department heads. Chairmen made budget requests, and the deans evaluated them, trying both to be fair and to keep the college financially stable. Sunkel felt even with budget decisions, cur- riculum reviews, personnel responsibilities and endless meetings, his job was enjoyable be- cause he could apply both his teaching and ad- ministrative skills. " Being a good administrator meant teaching people to be administrators, " Sunkel said. " I en- joyed working with people, providing leadership and management to make things better. " Although there were negative aspects, the administrators saw their jobs as worthwhile. " We had an opportunity to make things hap- pen, to help other teachers in their goals, " Ryan said. " 1 liked being able to facilitate change where change was needed. " They were teachers and administrators, help- ing students and entire colleges. Through com- mitment and interest, the deans provided leadership and applied administrative skills to their duties. But they didn ' t forget the most im- portant part of education: teaching. They saw students as the motivation for making their col- leges better. D Suzan Matheme k ■ 1 110 Deans Colleagues Dr. Alfred Kelly and Dr. Ron DeYoung discuss the business curriculum.

It was a devastating plunge of 508 points in a single day that sent the stock mar- ket reeling and the nation in a confused economic tailspin. The stock market crash brought back shades of Black Fri- day, the crash of 1929 that sent America into the Great Depression. Even that paled in comparison to the October crash, which was of nearly twice its magnitude. Bloody Monday brought the unprecedented five-year-old bull market to a screeching halt and left stock brokers and government officials to pick up the pieces. Hindsight revealed that the sudden downturn began the week before, when stocks fell almost 200 points in a three- day period. But these warning signs were not heeded because similar fluctuations had been going on for five years. It was shrugged off as just another reminder that the bull market wouldn ' t last forever. Even while the Japanese and European markets fell Oct. 18 and 19, few expected the disaster that would occur at 9:30 a.m. when the New York Stock Exchange opened. On Monday morning, the market opened and fell 200 points within 30 minutes. Traders in the pits watched in shock as the market made a comeback around noon and then dive-bombed 295 points by 2 p.m. with the tape two hours behind. Shock gave way to panic, and panic gave way to despair when the market closed down 508 points. Total losses of the day were esti- mated at $385 billion. Speculation as to the causes of the crash came from all corners. Multi-millionaire and entrepreneur Ivan Boesky, who had been charged with insider trading, caught a lot of blame. Joining his ranks were Congress and the Reagan adminis- tration under whom the national debt climbed to a stagger- ing trillion dollars. Most economists, however, felt the crash was self-inflicted by young traders who, driven by hopes of becoming instant millionaires, urged a bull market they couldn ' t control. " The stock market was based on perception, " Mike Wil- son, economics professor, said. " The ' greater fool theory ' The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 508 points, the lar- gest plunge in history, on Oct. 19. Some called it a " crash, " while others referred to the event as " Bloody Monday. " Whatever it was, however, it stripped $500 billion from the mar- ket value of American securities. Photo by Wide World stated a trader should pay any price for a stock as long as someone would buy it for more. That caused prices to spiral up until everything fell apart, and the last person to buy was caught holding the bag. " Other possible causes Wilson cited were companies that sold stocks for more than they were worth and computer trad- ing, in which a company ' s computer was programmed to sell stock when prices fell to a certain point. T Then stocks dropped 200 points in half an hour and every- body ' s computers were selling as fast as they could, there was obviously confusion and panic ' -Mike Wilson " The problem arose when computers followed their pro- grams and sold tremendous amounts of stock before any- body stopped them, " Wilson said. " When stocks dropped 200 points in half an hour and everybody ' s computers were sell- ing as fast as they could, there was obviously confusion and panic. " Traders who thought Bloody Monday was a slap in the face for the bull market were shaken the following day by a brush with a stock meltdown on a global scale. Aftershocks were felt both nationally and locally. Sam Wal- ton, owner of Wal-Mart, lost a reported $500 million on Bloo- dy Monday, but he was still worth over $8 billion. Even though stockholders everywhere felt the impact of the crash, the local scene experienced less turmoil. " Most of the blow from Bloody Monday was taken by the big companies, " Wilson said. " Just because some of the gi- ants lost heavily didn ' t mean everybody else was taken down with them. " Most students also played down the effects of the crash. " 1 didn ' t feel the crash had that big of an effect on most people, " Tim Milius said. " Even though the actual numbers were a lot bigger than in the crash of 1929, the actual per- centage of points lost wasn ' t as bad.

In September, the United States Navy blew up an Iranian ship tha was caught laying mines in the Gulf. Photo by Wide World U.S.S. stark: Caught in the line of fire President Ronald Reagan performed his well- practiced act of honor- ing Americans who lost their lives in the service of their country when a frigate was struck by an Iraqi missile. Thirty-seven sailors were killed aboard the G.S.S. Stark sailing in the Persian Gulf in May. The tragedy evoked sorrow throughout the nation, but the sting of the incident was made greater by a list of unanswered questions. What was the Unit- ed States doing in the Persian Gulf? Why did Iraq fire on the Stark? And why didn ' t crew members defend themselves? Many Americans were puz- zled about why Maval vessels were in the Persian Gulf. Actu- ally, (Jnited States Naval forces 114 International News had traveled in the gulf for nearly 40 years to keep water routes open for trade. Naval occupation in the gulf, however, was increased during Reagan ' s administration. The Iran-Iraq War began in 1980, and the United States initially planned to remain neu- tral in dealings with the na- tions. In 1984 the two coun- tries began attacking each other ' s oil shipments while also hitting other ships in the area. Kuwait, which was aiding Iraq, became an Iranian target. Caspar Weinberger, defense secretary, called the Stark at- tack a " single, horrible error on the part of the Iraqi pilot. " Iraq President Saddem Hussein im- mediately sent an apology to the (Jnited States, expressing his hope that the incident would not affect relations be- tween the two countries. With more warning, the in- cident probably could have been avoided. Two warnings were sent to Iraqi planes when the Stark detected them, but they were ignored. When the Iraqi warplane fired its first shot, the Stark was directly in front of it. Mistaken for an Ira- nian tanker, the Stark didn ' t know what was coming until it was too late. The ship ' s inabil- ity to detect the missile ' s launch on radar left the crew no time to react. The frigate tried to turn quickly to fire at the approach- ing missile, but before the crew could successfully defend themselves, their ship had been hit. A missile tor« through living quarters wher« men were sleeping, and part; of the ship caught on fire. But the fighting spirit of th« remaining Stark crew didn ' change the fact that Americar lives were lost in a war the) weren ' t even fighting. " United States involvemem in the Persian Gulf War was e tragic waste of innocent lives, ' Doug Pleak said. Close to 2,000 mournerj gathered in Florida to remem ber men the president referrec to as " immortal. " Explanations had been made, but Reagan ' s piercing question, " Why die this happen?

D uring their third summit, the superpower lead- ers signed an arms-control agreement, if ratified, the intermediate-range nuclear forces treaty would eliminate an entire class of missiles. For six months after the treaty went into effect, missiles (vould be harmlessly launched nto space, in the next three ears, as many as 2,600 mis- siles would be cut apart, :rushed and burned. For the first time in history, ;he treaty offered an on-site in- spection of territory. Ameri- :ans had not expected Gor- )achev to allow the U.S. to in- to ipect nuclear plants. American i ] diplomats feared inspections vould be withheld or delayed, Jut the Senate was expected to ratify the treaty " Since Gorbachev was try- ing to be open and was mak- ing progress no other Soviet leader had, we needed to trust him, " Ed Hymes said. " If the two leaders trusted each other, the arms agreement would work. " Although major points were ironed out prior to the summit, the men found it difficult to work out the details. However, Reagan found Gorbachev will- ing to release vital information, including locations of missile sites. Before Reagan ' s term ex- pired, he hoped to sign another treaty with Gorbachev that would eliminate 12,000 missiles from both countries. Gorbachev was also eager to reach an agreement that would reduce strategic arms, but Senate members voiced hesi- tation to ratify a second treaty. With a lot to accomplish in little time, Reagan sat back down at the drawing board. Maybe a fourth summit would ban even more nuclear weapons and improve relations between the Gnited States and the Soviet Union.

They asked the United States to help by cutting off aid to the mujahedin re- bels. But since the Soviets had announced their plans to pull out 15,000 troops several times before and didn ' t follow through, Secretary of State George Schultz hesitated to meet his end of the bargain. Soviet officials saw a flaw in the United States ' plan, however, saying that the Krem- lin put pressure on Morth Vietnam when the United States wanted to withdraw, so Ameri- ca should also help them save face. " They failed to withdraw troops before, so they were probably bluffing again, " Mike Hol- loway said. Soviet officials admitted they couldn ' t leave the country without some explanation President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev met in Washington, D.C., for their third summit. The leaders agreed on a treaty to significantly limit nuclear missiles in Europe.

Manuel Noriega. " He should have been kicked out a long time ago, " a Panamanian student who asked to remain anonymous, said. " He knew how to buy people and keep in power.

Even if the Soviets decided to leave, they weren ' t guaranteed a peaceful retreat. The mujahedins announced they would fight back, with or without American support, de- pending on other countries for supplies. American officials questioned Gor- bachev ' s aims, wondering if the proposal was only a plot to convince the United States to cut off aid. In addition, the U.S. government had little incentive to help the Soviets since they had not made any progress in taking over since they arrived. Although the United States and Soviet Un- ion were discussing a compromise, the atti- tude of the Pentagon was to let the Soviets find their own way outD Cara Moore International News 115 ationa] Tower Commission hurls accusations North becomes star witness in Iran-contra hearings White House officials being in- terrogated became a familiar sight to television viewers. End- less hours of questioning led viewers through the alleged sell- ing of arms to Iran in exchange for American hostages, with profits going to Nicaraguan contras. At a time when the public be- gan to question the integrity of President Ronald Reagan for al- lowing such an affair to exist, Lt. Col. Oliver North became a target of political interest. With presidential election campaigns Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North was a key official In the plan to finance anti-government rebels in Nicara- gua with money from arms sales to Iran. In testimony before the Iran- Contra hearings in Washington, D.C., North became a national celebrity. Photo by Wide World around the corner, North ' s brav- ery for carrying out a command became important to the public. Within weeks of the congression- al hearings, " Oliver North for President " bumper stickers were being sold in stores throughout the country. But, not everyone believed North was a hero. " North was used as the person to get the job done, the middle man, " Rob Van Orden said. " But he left himself wide open. Being in the military, he should have learned to be clear in following orders. " Eyebrows raised as North ' s in- volvement in the scandal began to unfold. Prior to hearings. North and secretary Fawn Hall shredded documents linking North direct- ly to contra arms deals. North later testified that his effort to cover up was " probably the gros- sest misjudgment that I ' ve made in my life. " He immediately won the pub- lic over with his honest approach on the stand, declaring that he planned to tell everything, the " good, the bad, and the ugly. " His involvement in the scandal began in 1984 and continued un- til a crimin al investigation was or- dered in 1986. It was then that North began taking home note- books documenting his activities so he would be prepared to rev- eal names. Even though he claimed he wasn ' t trying to " drag a whole bunch of people into the Ollie North dragnet, " he did just that. Secretary of State George Schultz, Attorney General Edwin Meese and former national secu- rity adviser Robert McFarlane were only a few North mentioned in his testimony. While North ' s motives during the ordeal continued to be ques- tioned, the full effect of the Presi- dent ' s involvement remained to be seen. " Reagan ' s credibil- ity was hurt by the affair, and as a result, 1 lost faith in him as a leader. " •Rob Van Orden After Reagan established the Tower Commission to lead the in- vestigation, he reported that he hadn ' t known about the contra funding. However, after Reagan listened to hearings that con- tradicted his statement, he changed his story. The operation then became Reagan ' s " idea to begin with. " Some Americans kept faith in Reagan ' s ability as a leader, while others felt his image had been damaged. " Reagan ' s credibility was hurt by the affair, and as a result, I lost faith in him as a leader, " Van Or- den said. Despite the tremendous sup- port for North, no one could be sure who was telling the truth and who was hiding his own actions. Nevertheless, Reagan remained in the White House, hoping his country would be behind him when he left office.

Mrs. Reagan was one of approximately 1 million women who underwent bi- opsies for breast cancer each year.

Photo by Wide World Crime wave on Wall Street Illegal trading robs companies of millions A crime wave in New York usually didn ' t take anyone by surprise, but when multi- million-dollar muggings oc- curred on Wall Street, people tuned in to the financial community. The muggings weren ' t made public until a corn refiner in Il- linois sued an investment bank, claiming they were forced into a leveraged buyout. Once Staley Continental Inc. made its accusation, other companies and individual in- vestors followed suit. One such individual was Lewis Lehrman who invested in a partnership run by Ivan Boesky. Others were small in- vestors who wanted to prove they were victims of insider trading. In many cases, victims saw stocks rise a few points and sold their shares. After they realized stocks rose be- cause of insider trading, it was too late. The stock price had climbed 10 to 20 points, caus- ing them to lose millions. Cases of insider trading had been taken to court before, but traders made it difficult for the courts to set a precedent by claiming they were only speculating. However, the courts finally made their stand by convicting Boesky of illegal trading. " The companies would probably neve r get all their money back, but 1 expected the courts to clamp down on insider traders and try to con- trol information released early within companies, " Kevin Roy- al said. Boesky caused FMC to pay an extra $220 million after he bought 50 percent of the com- pany ' s stock because of a tip, causing inflated prices. After the Stock Market crash, more trouble arose in the financial community. Brok- ers and investors watched stock prices drop by the sec- ond, fearing the market would hit rock bottom. One investor involved in a stock-manipula- tion scam and insurance fraud couldn ' t handle the threat and rushed into an investment office in a fit of rage. After killing the manager and critically wounding a brok- er, Arthur Katz shot himself. Fortunately, the market leveled out, but the crime rate on Wall Street didn ' t take care of itself. Many companies were still battling with muggers in court, trying to recover the mil- lions of dollars they lost from illegal trading. D Cara Moore National News 117 In the six years since the mysterious immunity- robbing disease surfaced, AIDS had killed near- ly 25,000 Americans. Millions of dollars were poured into research, and President Reagan proclaimed the disease " Public Enemy No. 1. " Photo by Wide World Coming to terms with AIDS After six years and 25,000 deaths, President Ronald Rea- gan proclaimed what everyone already seemed to know: AIDS was America ' s " Public Enemy Mo. 1. " Though the initial shock of the disease seemed to have dissipated, many people were dealing with AIDS on a differ- ent, more personal level. The facts finally hit home, and the public became aware everyone was a potential AIDS victim. Mary Strong, a nurse at St. Francis Hospital, said she knew of two AIDS cases in Maryville, but the patients had been transferred to other facilities. Even as the general public came to grips with the magni- tude of the crisis and scientists worked on cures, journalist Randy Shilts was uncovering evidence of the mishandling of the crisis in its early years. In his bestseller. And the Band Played On: People, Polit- 118 National News ics and the AIDS Epidemic, Shilts revealed what scientists had suspected: a handful of people bore responsibility for introducing the AIDS virus to North America. One of the most prominent players in the crisis. Air Cana- da steward Gaetan Dugas, was singled out as " Patient Zero " because of his Typhoid Mary- like role in spreading the dis- ease. At least 40 of the first 248 gay men diagnosed had either had sex with Dugas or with someone who had. Furthermore, Dugas con- tinued to frequent bathhouses after his disease was diag- nosed and doctors advised him to refrain from sex. Dugas con- tinued having approximately 250 sex partners each year until his death in 1984. Shilts spared no one when assigning blame for the mis- handling of the epidemic, in- cluding members of gay com- munities in New York and San Francisco who insisted public- ity of the disease would spread homophobia and defeat gay political causes. Government officials also were found liable for the proliferation of AIDS, especial- ly the Reagan administration ' s cuts from federal health budg- ets in the early 1980s when money was needed most for AIDS research and education. " We were all afraid of AIDS, " Leigh Ann Rogers said. " 1 thought if we were more edu- cated it would have been easi- er to handle. " Little by little, the public was awakened to the AIDS menace through both personal ex- perience and public policy. Though rattled with disbelief, Americans knew the crisis was far from over and began to cope with the reality of AIDS.D Mike Dunlap Kids hung up on sex hotlines " Sex hotline.... Can I meet your fantasy? " may have been a greeting many children heard when they dialed pornograph- ic 1-900 numbers time after time, not understanding the message, while running up ex- orbitant phone bills. Children calling the num- bers were subjected to taped or live sexual conversations, and they often had no concept of what the messages meant. " If kids knew what they were calling, many wouldn ' t have used the numbers, " Amy Cada said. " 1 knew a second grader who called. He didn ' t know what the messages meant, and when his parents explained, he got scared. " As more children began dis- covering the numbers, inci- dents of rape among children increased. One incident involved a 12-year-old boy who listened to X-rated phone messages, then forced a 4-year-old girl to perform sexual acts. Both sets of parents filed lawsuits against Pacific Bell and two other phone companies carrying the pornographic service. " The responsibility shouldn ' t have been with the phone company, " Norma Prettyman said. " Parents needed to get locks on their phones and quit blaming everyone for their chil- dren ' s actions. " The major controversy regarding children ' s access to " dial-a-pom " was deciding who was responsible for the calls. Neither the phone company, the companies producing the messages nor the parents ac- cepted blame for the situation, as children continued to phone the services and companies continued reaping profits. D Cynthia Angeroth les IVlass killings spread holiday grief While some families were celebrating the holiday sea- son, others were mouming unexplained tragedies. During a four-day killing spree, Ronald Simmons Sr. killed 14 family members, two townspeople and wound- ed four others in Russellville, Ark. Police found five bodies in his mobile home, seven more bodies in a shallow grave outside and his two grandsons in the trunks of two abandoned cars. After he murdered his family, Simmons went into the bus- iness from which he had been fired. He shot the secretary whom he allegedly loved, killed another employee and wounded four more. Police said his job loss and his unrequit- ed love for the secretary were probable motives for the spree. Simmons was charged with two counts of capital murder and four more of attempted murder. He refused to comment on his motives during imprisonment. " I think he should ' ve been put in prison, but he should have also received psychiatric help, " Kim Edwards said. " Insanity shouldn ' t have been a reason for a lesser sentence in his case because of the seriousness of his crime. " Meanwhile, in Algona, Iowa, police said it was possi- ble leaming of the the Arkansas killings might have tipped the balance for another mass murder. On Dec. 30, 40-year-old Robert Dreesman shot his father, mother, sister, one niece and two nephews before he turned the gun on himself. Described as a loner who lacked self-confidence and had trouble relating to p eople, Dreesman shocked the community. " We thought that it could never happen to us, " Jennifer Riley from Algona said. " The whole town was in mourning, and it was the topic of conversation everywhere I went. " Even though survivors were separated by hundreds of miles, they all felt the same sense of unrest. Discovering no appar- ent motive for the slaughters, the hearts of towns- people went out to family and survivors.

The final death toll was 156, but there was one survivor of the Aug. 17 crash. She was four-year-old Cecilia Cichan, whose survival was attributed to her mother wrapping herself around the giri ' s body to pro- tect her from the flames. She did not escape completely un- harmed, however, suffering a concussion, third-degree burns, and a broken leg and collarbone. Possible causes of the crash included an abundance of un- evenly distributed luggage or failure to extend the craft ' s wing flaps. The Northwest Airiines plane had dipped from left to right immediately after liftoff from Detroit and struck a light pole. It then hit a build- ing and crashed into an em- bankment on an interstate highway. The tragedy of Flight 255 came in the midst of numer- ous near-collisions, six of which transpired in a week ' s time. Most of the nation ' s atten- tion turned toward a near- collision involving President Ronald Reagan ' s helicopter. While attempting to land at Reagan ' s Santa Barbara ranch, the helicopter encountered a private plane that ventured into the prohibited safety zone, passing approximately 50 feet below them. Also during the summer, a Delta Airiine pilot unintention- ally cut his engines in mid- flight, and the plane fell 1,000 feet before he could start the motors again. Complaints about airiine safety and procedures were six times as frequent in July as they had be en during the same month the previous year. " The last time 1 was at Kan- sas City International, it seem- ed many more people were buying single-trip flight insur- ance, " Rochelle Scroggie said. " So many near-crashes hap- pened in such a short time that people got concerned. " Passengers weren ' t the only concerned individuals. Pilots of Eastern Airlines sent over 1,000 letters to the FAA com- plaining about the company ' s poor equipment and main- tenance of planes.

A 48-foot high tank holding 3.8 million gallons of fuel oil suddenly burst, result- ing in a 35-foot tidal wave. As workers filled a storage tank at Ashland Oil in Floreffe, Pa., the structure suddenly burst. Fuel oil spilled over a dike, entering the Monongahe- la River through storm sewers. The river was inundated with 860,000 gallons of oil. Within 24 hours, 23,000 residents of Pittsburgh were without tap water. An additional 750,000 were forced to ration drinking water. Eventually 12,000 were evacuated, dozens of factories were shut down, schools were closed and commercial traffic on the river was halted. The oil continued its route into the Ohio River in Pitts- burgh, traveling to Steuben- ville, Ohio, where an ice jam slowed its progress. Most people took the incon- venience good-naturedly, and businesses assisted during the crisis. One funeral director used his hearse to deliver bot- tled water to shut-ins. " It was nice to think that in a bad situation the best side of people would come out and they would help each other, " Dee Ditmars said. Six lawsuits were filed against Ashland Oil, and con- sidering the number of people and companies involved, Ash- land and the riverside commu- nities would be sorting out blame for the Floreffe spill long after immediate effects of the oil had disappeared.

The quake killed six peo- ple and injured more than 100. Michael Guerin of the Governor ' s Office of Emergency Services said he hoped the quake would serve as a " wake-up call " to re- mind residents how dangerous the ground beneath their feet could be. " My sister lived in California and was driv- ing her car when the earthquake hit, " Ron Al- pough said. " She thought something was wrong with her car, so she pulled over and shut it off. When the car continued shaking, she realized it was an earthquake. " More than 1 6 aftershocks measuring over 3.0 on the Richter scale hit within four hours after the initial jolt. Damages were estimated at $59 million. The quake was centered between Whitti- er and Pasadena, 30 miles from the San An- dreas Fault. In Whittier the quake shattered windows, snapped power lines and ignited fires with broken gas lines. More than 1 ,000 residents were evacuated from their damaged homes and businesses. " 1 have family living right near the epicenter, and 1 was really relieved when 1 found out they were all right, " Dan Hernan- dez said.

" The doc- trine of the church should have been subjected to a more democratic system. " Other problems resulted from the pope ' s visit when millions of dollars were spent to greet and protect him. Secret Service branches spent $5.7 million, while Miami invested $5.5 million in the pope ' s 23-hour visit to the city. Many citizens, however, felt the money was well-spent as they followed the pope from state to state. In San Antonio, 500,000 people joined the pope for Mass, while 300,000 showed up in Miami and 227,000 were on hand in New Orleans.

For the first time, the civil rights leader ' s birthday was declared a University holiday, keeping with national and state precedents. Harambee members presented a mo- tion to Student Senate discussing King ' s contributions to modern political and philosophical history and proposed that King ' s birthday be commemorated with a University holiday. The Harambee proposal was denied by only one vote. Many felt it was defeated because other important figures such as George Washington and Abraham Lin- coln weren ' t honored with University holidays.

The cabinet and Board of Regents followed suit by passing the resolution. " Student Senate made a wise choice in voting for the holiday, " April Renfroe said. " With time it would have benefit- ed all students and local citizens. King stood for the rights of all people, and we were trying to make people realize that. " To celebrate the first King holiday, Harambee offered educational activities including a community breakfast, a free- dom march, a bell-ringing ceremony, keynote speakers and documentaries of King ' s life. " It was great seeing black students honor someone as great as King on his birthday, " Angela Dudley said. " For its first year, it went rather smoothly.

Philadelphia murders Under the guise of a minister, Gary Heidnik found it easy to attract the poor and retarded to his house in North Philadel- phia. But when police broke in, they found more than a makeshift church. They dis- covered three badly bruised and dehydrated women and 24 pounds of frozen human limbs wrapped in white plas- tic bags. Police said Heidnik ab- ducted six women and killed two of them, one of whom was forced into a water-filled pit and elec- trocuted by running live wires into the water. Neighbors charged offi- cials with ignoring their sus- picions of foul play, and police were finally led to in- vestigate when one prisoner escaped and reported tales of sexual abuse, torture, murder and cannibalism.

Winter Olympics As world military powers went, the United States was definitely a superpower. As Winter Olympic competi- tions went, however, the U.S. was little more than a third-world nation. The U.S. Olympic Team left Calgary and the 15th Winter Olympic Games with just six medals, tying them for eighth place in the overall medal standings. The Soviet Union estab- lished a Winter Games record by grabbing 29 me- dals, including 11 gold and nine silver. Speed skater Bonnie Blair of Champaign, 111., be- came America ' s only multi- ple medal winner of the Games. Blair struck gold by setting a world record in the 500-meter sprint. She later added a bronze in the 1,000-meter race. Brian Boitano captured the other American gold medal in the men ' s figure skating competition. Speed skater Eric Flaim took home the only American silver medal by virtue of his performance in the 5,000-meter race. Figure skaters accounted for the other two American bronze medals.

In fact, the attempts at recon- struction only seemed to cause more crumbling. Gary Hart attempted another run for the presiden- cy, formally announcing his candidacy April 13 and be- coming the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. Just over three weeks later, he withdrew from the race under a bombard- ment of questions about his personal life. The questions that led to the snag in his goal arose when the Miami Herald, working on an anonymous tip, broke the sto- ry of a rumored affair Hart was having with Donna Rice, a 29-year-oId aspiring actress. The reports of Hart ' s activities, gathered by the Herald from surveilance of Hart ' s Washing- ton, D.C., townhouse, spread quickly and soon became top news around the country. While Hart and Rice de- clared their relationship to be platonic, the public seemed to lose faith in the Democratic candidate. Soon reports of a weekend cruise with Rice were released, and pictures of the pair on the retreat ran in thou- sands of newspapers. " I thought he made the mis- take the average man would make, but he was not the aver- age man, " Denise McCann said. " He was supposed to have been the man for the job. " Unable to handle the con- stant pressure of the media and the questions of his fideli- ty, Hart withdrew his bid for the presidency, stating he could not subject his family and friends to any more rumors. His remarks about the press made many think about jour- nalists ' ethics and if the treat- ment they gave Hart was actu- ally the cause of his downfall. " Scrutiny by the press was the price a candidate had to pay, " Nelsie Henning said. " The American people wanted to know about the candidates. " I thought he made the mis- take the average man would make, but he was not the average man ' -Denise McCann Gary Hart and if damaging information came out, it was up to the peo- ple to form their own opinions. " The possibility of Hart returning to the race became a reality at the end of Decem- ber when he again threw his hat into the ring. Public opin- ion polls showed Hart at the bottom of the ladder, and it ap- peared that he primarily en- tered the race to raise funds to pay off debts from his previous campaign. " His re-entry into the cam- paign was not valid, " Henning said. " He was after funds for debts from his ' 84 race. " A less-than-impressive showing in the Iowa caucuses seemed to represent the pub- lic ' s feelings toward the democrat, and it appeared this was one broken Hart that could not be mended. D Denise Pierce Casey makes deathbed confession VEIL lifted on Iran-contra scandal The Iran-contra connection became even more mysterious with the death of one of the most prominent figures in the scandal. In his book VEIL: Secret Wars of the CIA from 1981-87, journalist Bob Woodward claimed former CIA Director William Casey made a deathbed confes- sion to knowledge of the arms-for- hostages deal. In a four-minute interview minutes be- fore his death, Casey apparently indicat- ed his involvement to Woodward. When Woodward asked Casey if he knew about the diversion of funds and the selling of arms, Casey ' s head jerked up hard, nodding yes. And when asked why, Casey faintly replied, " 1 believed, " then he drifted off to sleep. Many people were unsatisfied with Woodward ' s book, saying it was too much of a perfect ending. Could Woodward ' s story have been just that: a perfect end- ing for a story? Some believed that the plan to sell arms to Iran and fund the Con- tras with profits was Casey ' s work. " It was typical of government officials, " Anita Smith said. " It seemed they all had something to hide. " If Casey was behind the scandal, he re- fused to tell his aides. Even more fingers pointed to Casey when it was revealed that under his direction, the CIA led at least 12 secret operations, assigned spies to 25 nations, and penetrated many unfriendly, neutral and friendly governments. " Casey knew quite a bit about the deal- ings, and when he had the perfect oppor- tunity to tell Woodward everything, he gave him the run-around with a simple nod which probably had no kind of mean- ing whatsoever, " Darci Braden said. Despite Woodward ' s interview with Casey, Americans tended to be skeptical. A simple nod from a man on his deathbed was not enough to convince most people, but the only man who really knew the truth died, taking his secret with him.D L ra Sypkens 1 24 Newsmakers r Third time a charm for justices It began as President Ronald Reagan ' s last chance to swing the Supreme Court to the right with his appointment of the 104th justice. The press called the fight to find a successor for Justice Lewis Powell an ideological battle. Reagan had opposition from liberal Senate members as soon as he nominat- ed Robert Bork, 60, (J.S. Court of Appeals judge. Reviewing his ideology and politi- cal philosophies, his opponents found him against several freedom of choice issues. " We should have kept Bork because he loffset the liberals, " Mark Dereberry said. " He was also the most qualified. " While conservative activists felt Bork ' s nomination would have been one of Rea- igan ' s best moves, liberal senators felt it ithreatened Americans ' rights and liberties. After Bork was rejected, Reagan chose Douglas Ginsburg, also a conservative, but known to have some liberal views. While Reagan thought he was getting someone who would approach issues from a con- servative view like Bork, opponents disco- vered Ginsburg had smoked marijuana. " His smoking pot had nothing to do with his ability as a judge, " Gerry Benavente said. However, after some speculation and in- vestigation, Ginsburg withdrew his name from nomination. With both Reagan and the Senate members tired from battle, Reagan chose a third nominee. Although Anthony Kennedy, an open-minded conservative, didn ' t have the historical record of Bork or the experience of Ginsburg, his back- ground was practically flawless. For Reagan, this could have been the The Senate rejected President Reagan ' s nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court by a 58-42 vote.

On Sept. 22, NFL players walked off the playing fields and onto the picket lines. The strike, which hit after weeks of intense negotiations, reached a stale- mate between management and labor organizations. The issues separating players and owners were complex.

Photo by Wide World wanted addressed. The owners wanted the union to accept a salary structure for ail first-year players in addition to random drug testing. But those issues were actually secondary concerns. The major obstacle was free agency. Former Bearcat linebacker Steve Savard, who spent the season on in- jured reserve with the Dallas Cowboys, found himself involved in the strike. " It was tough to sympathize with the union when the average salary was over $240,000, " Savard said. " But, an aver- age career was only three years, so players had to get it while they could. " The owners assembled replacement squads, and games were played for three weeks. Eventually, more and more veterans crossed the picket lines. On Oct. 15, the strike was called off, and the remaining striking players went back to work without an agreement. Differences between the two sides remained unresolved, and it was uncer- tain whether a collective bargaining agreement would be achieved before training camps opened in July.D Newsmakers 125 ewsmaker| Buying the gift of life Baby M decision holds surrogate to pre-natal contract When the court handed down its decision awarding custody of Baby M to Mr. and Mrs. William Stern, there were more questions raised than answered. Early in 1985, the Sterns contacted Mary Beth White- head about being a surrogate mother because Mrs. Stern was unable to bear children. Whitehead signed a contract saying she would not " form or attempt to form a parent-child relationship " with the resulting infant. The Sterns promised to pay Whitehead $10,000 plus medical expenses. During delivery in March 1986, however, the surrogate decid- ed she couldn ' t go through with the deal. " I didn ' t understand how anyone could have given away her baby, no matter how much money was involved, " Julie An- derson said. The child was named Sara by Whitehead, Melissa by the Sterns and dubbed Baby M by the courts. After several weeks of argu- ments between the Sterns and the surrogate, the couple fled with Baby M to Florida where they were tracked down by a private investigator. Custody was awarded to the Sterns with Whitehead getting two hours visitation twice a week. Whitehead then sued for custody, with the case coming to court in January 1987. The question was raised as to whether it was a contract dis- pute or a custody case. The court ' s decision was up- held by a three-judge panel af- ter an emotionally charged six- week trial. The judge called Whitehead " manipulative, im- pulsive and exploitive. " Finally, four days after her first birthday. Baby M became Melissa Stern. D Ken Campbell Bakkers dethroned in PTL scandal Millions were disillusioned when Jim and Tammy Bakker lost their FTL televi- sion ministry because of misuse of church funds and the alleged affair Bakker had with church secretary Jessica Hahn. In addition to the affairs of which Bak- ker was accused, his wife admitted that she had been addicted to " prescription drugs " and was involved in two affairs. " The scandal awakened my awareness, " Shannon Bybee said. " More people learned to look upon the television minis- tries with a critical eye. " Bakker ' s replacement, the Rev. Richard Dortch, was released from duties after proof that he had paid Hahn $265,000 for her silence. Mysteriously enough, the PTL was $50 million in debt, but the Bakkers had earned $4.9 million in 18 months. The Rev Jerry Falwell, a Baptist minister who founded the Moral Majori- ty, recovered the fallen PTL empire. He also became the major spokesman against the Bakkers. The Holy War took a new turn whe n Bakker accused Falwell of taking over the ministry. Falwell lashed back with accusa- tions concerning Bakker ' s sexual life and embezzlement of the ministry ' s money. The Bakkers ' $172 million PTL empire included a 2,300-acre resort and amuse- ment park, a television network, con- dominiums, houses, hotels and cars. To help pay the PTL debt, many of the Bak- kers ' personal possessions were auc- tioned, including their dog ' s air- conditioned house. While ministers were battling it out, fol- lowers were experiencing a Holy War of their own. Knowing who to trust had be- come quite a challenge, but Tammy ' s 1 4 furs came in handy once the Bakkers were out of the ministry and into the cold.D Connie Ferguson and Cara Moore Televangelists Jim and Tammy Bakker said farewell to the PTL ministry.

But the word had obviously not iViade it to the box office or prime time television, which continued to aim big bucks programming toward well-to-do baby boomers. It was obvious, however, that a general mellowing had taken hold of the yupsters, and when they pulled their BMWs into the garage after a hard day in the cruel world, the net- works were there to oblige them with a barrage of yuppie entertainment. One of the most obvious attempts to target the yuppie audience came with ABC ' s " thirtysomething. " The light drama was based on the rela- tionships of a group of friends, some married and some single, who found themselves stepping out of delayed adolescence and into the adult world. The program dealt with such yuppie issues as having a first child, making family commitments and dealing with aging parents. For those who preferred a little taste of the office at home, NBC offered " L.A. Law, " a spicy and intel- ligent office drama. Though its ratings were sluggish at first, the show shot into the Niel- sen Top 10 in November. Critics also praised " Law, " and the show won more Emmy awards than any other program. When they pulled their BMWs into the garage after a hard day in the cruel world, the networks were there to oblige with a barrage of yuppie entertain- ment. On the big screen, movies hit both the light and dark side of yup- piedom, with many taking the theme of settling down. In " She ' s Having a Baby, " a couple explored baby boomers ' parental instincts and the problems of reconciling a career and family life. Other yuppie-oriented films in- cluded " Three Men and a Baby, " which became an instant hit by pok- ing fun at the misadventures of three career-oriented men saddled with an infant. A semi-hit, " Baby Boom, " showed what happened when a management consultant was put in charge of raising a baby gid. Two big winners in the Oscar nominations, " Broadcast News " and " Fatal Attraction, " showed opposite perils of yuppie romance. In " Broad- cast News, " a director became in- volved in a love triangle with two co- workers, while " Fatal Attraction " scared baby boomers into fidelity. Glenn Close took an Oscar nomina- tion for her portrayal of a psychotic vamp stalking a married man she became involved with. Whether lecturing about morality or providing a mirror of yuppie life, it seemed the media had a great deal to say to baby boomers. And as some of America ' s most influential entertainment consumers, they were listening. D Mike Dunlap Golden oldies revamped for the ' 80s History repeated itself when several songs were released or re-released from the late ' 50s and early ' 60s. For some listeners, the songs brought back memories of golden oldies, but for the younger generation, music offered insight into a part of the past that history books couldn ' t describe. Among the songs that were dusted off and remade was " La Bamba, " originally performed by Ritchie Valens in 1957. The song was re-released by Los Lobos for the sound track of the movie " La Bamba, " the story of Valens ' brief rise to the top and the plane crash that made him a legend. " Dirty Dancing " was another sound- track from a movie set in the sixties. Ol- dies such as " In the Still of the Night " and " Be My Baby " were featured with new hits such as " The Time of My Life " by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. Kim Wilde also got in on the act with a steamed-up version of " Set Me Free, " and the Pet Shop Boys remade " What Have 1 Done To Deserve This.

Northwest offered such a reward through its people, making the University... Top of the Line 1 130 People m Recalling 40 years of change I t was 1948. Northwest was a teacher ' s college, Dr. J.W. Jones was its president and the only women ' s dormitory was Roberta Hall. There wasn ' t a single computer on campus. It was also the year Monica Zirfas came to campus as a student at Horace Mann High School, only to remain a part of the University for 40 years. During that period, Northwest be- came a university, erected 1 2 residence halls and installed computers in offices and dorm rooms. While students could only imagine most of the changes, Zir- fas had witnessed the entire face-lift by the time she retired in January from her post as administrative assistant to the president. Zirfas started her education in a small school in Burlington Junction. She graduated from Horace Mann High School in 1951 and began work in the Registrar ' s Office. At that time, only three people were in charge of keeping that office run- ning smoothly. She became assistant registrar and secretary to Dr. Robert Foster when he was dean of adminis- tration. When Foster became president in 1964, Zirfas remained his secretary. With Foster ' s promotion, Zirfas ' responsibilities also increased. " In 1970, I became the administra- tive assistant to the president and also secretary to the Board of Regents, " Zir- fas said. " My job included setting up meetings, taking minutes, and getting the agenda out to the Board. " While assisting the University through administrative changes, Zirfas saw the campus undergo physical changes, including the construction of academic buildings and residence halls. The University also had to keep up with changing times. " I went with Dr. Foster to buy the University ' s first computer, " Zirfas said. " There was no formal training, so any- thing 1 learned was self-taught. " After serving Northwest for over 30 years, Zirfas experienced another change: retiring from the University to work with her husband on their farm. Moving from the working world to farm life appeared to be a drastic change for Zirfas, but after 40 years at Northwest, change had become a way of life.D Connie Ferguson I ' J!

Adkins was one of 130 students from the United States to visit Spain during the spring semester of 1987. Every state was represented in the pro- gram except Alaska and Hawaii, and the majority of students came from California, Texas, Florida and New York. Adkins, however, was the only student from Missouri in the Trinity Christian College program. Once in Spain, Adkins went to a pri- vate school that was solely for Ameri- can students. His classes consisted of Spanish his- tory, grammar, literature and short sto- ries. All of his classes were taught by Spanish-speaking instructors. " 1 always had to be on my toes, " Ad- kins said. " 1 had to learn to think in Spanish. " Although Adkins couldn ' t transfer his credits to Northwest, he brought back valuable information and experiences he passed on to the first grade class at the Horace Mann Laboratory School. Although Adkins went to Spain to learn more about the country and its people, he also learned a lot about Americans and himself. " Forty percent of my educational ex- perience was about myself, finding out who 1 was and what it meant to be an American, " Adkins said. " We don ' t en- joy life like they do. They ' re simple, and they take time to relax with their families. " Family involvement was a big part of Adkins ' experience in Spain. As a part of the program, he was assigned a host family. However, he spent the majority of his time with the family of a friend he met in school. Adkins chose to visit Spain during the spring semester because of the Spanish holidays that fell during that time. Two major holidays were Holy Week and the April Fair. Adkins ' trip to Spain was an ex- perience he planned to weave into his teaching profession. He wrote to the school in Spain he attended and asked to teach there. Even if Adkins never had the oppor- tunity to teach in Spain, he planned to relate his travels to students in America. " Traveling was crucial to teaching a foreign language, " Adkins said. " Be- cause of my experiences, 1 could teach the country, the culture and the peo- ple more effectively.

Kent Schreiner Geography Lisa Sharp Management Logging on to o relationship R egina Simerly sat in Calculus class look- ing at every guy, trying to figure out which one she spent so many hours talking to on the computer phone system. Jeffrey Eiberger sat watching her with a smile. She had told him what she was going to wear so it would be easy for him to pick her out. Eiberger had taken precautionary measures by sending some friends to the library to meet Simerly, his new- found computer friend. The guys were supposed to meet her and report back mB On a Friday night, Pam Snead and Rick Jenkins enjoy watching television. They became acquainted through the com- puter phone system and began dating. Pho- to by Doug Stainbrook to Eiberger. Eiberger liked having a bit of mystery in his day. For him it was a fun game. " His friends that I met in the library kept walking by the class and peeking in, " Simerly said. After class, the two met face-to-face for the first time, and from then on they spent numerous evenings talking. Not all relationships made through the computer grew into a strong friend- ship like the one Simerly and Eiberger shared. However, many friendships were created. Some were started as a result of curi- osity. Debbie Schulte and her room- mate discovered the process name " Naked Man " on the computer. By writing to one another, Schulte got to know her computer friend, Bri- an Cada. However, it was some time be- fore the two knew each other as Schulte and Cada. " I didn ' t want him to have my real name in case he turned out to be a jerk, " Schulte said. Personality became a major part of the system when people created process names. Some used the names to reveal personality traits, while others created names as practical jokes. Many people seemed to be cautious, not only about using their real names, but also about meeting people they had talked to through the computer. " There was always the curiosity fac- tor, " Greg Smith said. " I wanted to put a name with the fac e to see who said what, but I was afraid. " The factor of anonymity was impor- tant to people who wrote to each other on a regular basis. For some it was eas- ier to talk to their computer friends be- cause they could say things that would be difficult to express in person. " I could say things to guys 1 had al- ways wanted to say but was too afraid to voice, " Connie Harrison said. The computer also allowed people to talk on a more serious level without the fear of anyone else hearing the conver- sation or reading the messages. " You could write personal things on the computer, and it wasn ' t displayed for anyone to see, " Schulte said. Whether people wrote to one another because of curiosity or int- rigue, many friendships were initiated. The results varied from mere acquain- tances to close relationships. The pos- sibilities were endless once people be- gan talking on the computer. For Simerly and Eiberger, their rela- tionship advanced far beyond those in- itial fears of meeting in Calculus. They took advantage of the time they spent together to create a relationship that stepped over the boundaries of friend- ship. Simerly and Eiberger were mar- ried less than a year after they met through the computer phone system.

After a few minutes of hearing the incessant ring- ing, he groped in the general direction of the alarm clock. He slapped the snooze button, allowing a few more treasured moments of slumber. Was it Monday already? After repeating the process of sleep, wake, sleep, wake, it had become apparent. That fateful day had arrived. Monday morning comes too soon for Scott Livingston as he shuts off his alarm. Livingston, like many other students, found it easy to oversleep. Photo by Sarah Frerking Students with 8 a.m. classes on Monday were notorious for sleeping until the last possible moment. " My roommate and I set the alarm for our Monday morning classes, but lots of times we shut it off and slept right through them, " Andrea Murray said. " Sometimes 1 would get up and get ready for class, then go back to bed. It was just too hard readjusting to the flow of things. " Others awoke as early as 6:30 a.m. to have extra time for studying, eating or getting ready for class. " 1 hated Mondays because 1 got up at 6:30 a.m. and drove two hours to get here and study before classes, " John Wagner said. " Mondays were always too long, and they meant there were still four days of classes to get through. " Part of the Monday complex includ- ed trying to find things to make the week go faster. A few students admit- ted throwing themselves into work, while others played hall Frisbee or other games to alleviate their appre- hension about starting the week. Mondays could be seen in a positive light, however. Class attendance seem- ed to be higher, and instructors ap- peared to be better prepared. It creat- ed an atmosphere of buckling down and getting to work. Even students who appreciated Mon- days could be found lurking within the majority ' s contempt for the day. Friends returning from the weekend met to catch up on gossip, while other students enjoyed having five full days to work on assignments and procras- tinate accordingly. " After the weekend, 1 got a fresh out- look on the week ahead of me, " Byron Petry said. " 1 got a new view on things. Mondays were good because ' Monday Night Football ' was on, and after Fri- day ' s soap opera left you hanging, you could find out what happened. " While some students found some- thing positive about Mondays, the life- less figure was still trying to escape the sleepAvake cycle. Sitting up in bed, rub- bing an eye and stifling a yawn, the big- gest challenge awaited him. Could this Monday be conquered, or should the day be spent in the peaceful solitude of slumber?

They sponsored functions for neighborhood youngsters including an annual Halloween Party and an Easter Egg Hunt. Also devoted to children were the members of Sigma Society, a service organization for women. The Special Friends program allowed children and University students to form friendships while learning about one another. " 1 learned a lot from the kids since I didn ' t have any younger brothers or sisters, " Sigma member Kim Trader said. " The kids seemed to enjoy us, too, because we served as a neutral party if they needed someone to talk to. " Having something to look forward to outside of school made programs spe- cial for children. " I could go places with my Special Friend 1 couldn ' t go with my other friends, " Kelli Linville said about her big sister Chrissy Pease. Big brother big sister programs offered opportunities for both children and students. Children received com- panionship while students gained from the experience.

Some students wbio were dedicated to their educations would probably still attend classes. But most felt they would not invest time and money in a " gradeless " institution. " 1 didn ' t think many people would bother going to college if they were not going to receive any grades, " Dacia Jenkins said. " Grades encouraged stu- dents and were a reward for doing well. If a university didn ' t use a grading sys- tem, there would have to be another way to keep students working. " Some students felt that without grades, a university would have no stan- dard to assess student progress. Also, students would have no way of know- ing whether they needed improvement. " A gradeless university would not be a good idea, " Chris Millikan said. " The student would not know if he was real- ly grasping the material presented in class, and there would be no incentive to master it. " Receiving grades was important to many students because they knew their marks would affect their performance in the job market. " I had to study for six hours or more each day to get the grades I wanted, " Millikan said. " Things didn ' t come eas- ily for me, so i had to compensate by putting more work into studying. " Knowing parents were footing the bill put additional pressure on some stu- dents to earn good grades, while others put the pressure on themselves. " My parents liked the fact i got good grades, but they didn ' t always pressure me, " Leah Betten said. " 1 put all the pressure on myself. " Students usually entered college with one thought in mind: to get a good job when they graduated. With that in- centive, they strove for good grades to reflect their abilities to prospective em- ployers. But Jeannine Gaa, acting director of career services, said that though making the grade was always good, a student ' s GPA was not the only thing companies considered. " Students almost had to look at the company ' s profile, " Gaa said. " Some companies would take a ' B ' or ' C stu- dent, while others would look for a 4.0. " Whether a student was interested in While roommate Kim Marsh sleeps, Leah Betten burns the midnight oil. Many students found extra effort the key to a higher grade point average. Photo by Con- nie Carlson receiving a degree for the educational value or to better his chances in the job market, grades were at the forefront. High achievement resulted in a posi- tive attitude, while low scores could in- dicate a student wasn ' t working up to his potential. So for most students, making the grade while sharpening skills was essential.

While some students chose to begin their careers after graduation, others chose to continue the cycle by attend- ing graduate school. For some graduate students, though, schedules became even more over- whelming, in addition to classwork, time had to be budgeted for children, work and spouses. For Cindy Cans, who worked in the Writing Skills Center, balancing her time between school and family re- quired letting some things slide until she had a break from school. " I tried not to think too far ahead be- cause if 1 had, 1 would have felt like giv- ing up, " Gans said. Many graduate students like Gans chose to work on campus while earn- ing their master ' s degrees. University jobs offered graduate students a chance to specialize even further in their fields of study. Janice Cerven-Whitham, another teaching assistant in the Department of English, took her job partly for extra money, but mainly for experience. " 1 became much more aware of writ- ing problems freshmen came to col- lege with, " Cerven-Whitham said. For most graduates, the experience they gained was a strong motivating factor. The jobs provided the ex- perience graduate students needed to complement their years of education. " In my case, it was for experience, " Gans said. " 1 was in danger of having too much education and no experi- ence. " Gans added, however, that she had to make sacrifices to go to school and work at the same time. " The hardest part was the time away from my son, " Gans said. " 1 had to make a trade-off somewhere. If I had been a working mother, I would have had to make sacrifices, too. " Other married graduate students also found they had to make trade-offs to juggle home, school and a job. " I had to shortchange my personal life, which included my husband, " Cerven-Whitham said. Gans and Cervan-Whitham were ex- amples of married graduate students who made sacrifices to take on jobs that paid them not only in money, but in experience. They couldn ' t allow college to take over their lives, but graduate students made a commitment to their educa- tions they didn ' t take lightly.

These were students who preferred to stay out of the fast lane, a group af- fectionately dubbed " couch potatoes. " The term " couch potatoes " conjured all types of images in non-tater minds, the most popular being an incredibly lazy person. " I think of a big, fat person slouched on her bed stuffing her face and star- ing at the television all day, " Amy John- ston said. But not all couch potatoes spent the entire day in front of a TV set, and not all of them were lazy. Consider, for instance, the original couch potato. Spud Davenport, who al- ways had his homework done on time and only came out of his shell to flirt with girls via computer mail. Spud returned from classes every af- ternoon in time to watch his favorite soaps, and he remained in front of the set until " The Transformers " was over. Spud wasn ' t a lazy potato; he was just sort of shy and a little passive at the same time. He liked a couple of close friends, and he wasn ' t going to go out of his way to whip up any more. So he spent his spare time in front of the boob tube, which often turned out to be a tater ' s best friend. Todd Hurley, who thought he might tend toward the starchy side of social life, said he sometimes put television before classes. " 1 always had to stay in my room on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the last possible moment so 1 didn ' t miss too much of ' Mr. Belvedere, ' and then I would run to class, " Hurley said. " And absolutely nothing would come before ■Alf. ' " The couch potatoes knew the ques- tions to all the answers, thanks to Alex Trebek. By arguing with Oprah every day, they came closer to intellectual conversations than many Northwest students. Despite the general negative attitude toward couch potatoes, their populari- ty seemed to be on the rise, and Spud found he was not alone. Of course he never met any others like himself be- cause each was in front of his own TV. To them, watching life from an arm- chair was all-rightalD Teresa Mattson AS Stress sprouts on Darren Miller, he resorts to watching television, a com- mon activity for couch potatoes. Some stu- dents preferred to vegetate when their schedules became too much to handle.

And they were seldom seen wielding a spoonful of sugar to make medicine go down. But by taking jobs as nannies, a few stu- dents found themselves playing the part of a modern-day Mary Poppins. As the demand for nannies in- creased, ads were found in the classi- fied sections of many newspapers. Stu- dents looking for more from a job than standing behind a cash register or flip- ping hamburgers took notice of the op- portunities. Their reward was traveling across the country to live with families and care for their children, experienc- ing a different twist to that age-old sum- mer job: babysitting. " 1 heard about the job from a friend and thought it would be something I ' d like, " Julia Heyle, a nanny for a family in Walton, Conn., said. " 1 also thought it would be helpful since I was an early childhood education major. " The families that hired nannies paid round trip transportation and provided room and board along with a salary. In many cases, a nanny was hired to care for the children while both parents worked, but sometimes the job of child- care was shared with the mother. " Some of my jobs included light housekeeping and playing with the kids, " Cathy Pogue said. " Their mother was home during the day, so some- times 1 felt like she was watching me. She never tried to change the way 1 was working, though. " Kerry Mangan, who helped run Care For Kids Inc. in Rowayton, Conn., said many East Coast families looked toward the Midwest when searching for a nanny. " Many of the nannies we had came from the Midwest because we found they were committed to good values and lifestyles, " Mangan said. An average salary for a nanny ranged from $75 to $200 a week, depending on experience. Although there was no official training to be a nanny, an appli- cant usually had to have babysitting ex- perience and a love for children. " I enjoyed playing and working with kids, " Heyle said. " That was necessary to do a good job as a nanny. " A nanny ' s day usually started early in the morning when she got the chil- dren up and ready for the day, but she was usually given the evenings and weekends off. " When the father came home from work, my day was basically over be- cause he wanted to spend time with the children, " Pogue said. " They always gave me time to spend as I wanted. " Families that hired the women tried to make them feel comfortable. " The family 1 worked for was very nice, " Sally Stewart said. " They always told me, ' You aren ' t a servant, you are part of the family, ' and that made it eas- ier for me. " Even though the students didn ' t have Poppins ' magical powers, they had the same experience and devotion. Nan- nies were becoming a thing of the 1980s, and if Poppins wasn ' t careful, stiff competition would put her with the unemployed.

Students were an- xious to go home and eat home-cooi ed food, forget about classes and visit friends. For more and more students, thougfi, holidays were becoming as stressful as school. Time-budgeting skills were test- ed as students juggled time between divorced parents. As statistics report- ed an evolution in American families, students felt those changes affecting their lives. Families were no longer the " Ozzie and Harriett " type. With changing times, students saw their families changing as well. For reasons students didn ' t always understand, their parents were becoming divorce statistics. Going to college provided a home away from family problems, but it didn ' t always mean those problems were left behind. Annelle Weymuth, instructor of Family Relationships, said college stu- dents weren ' t able to go through a grieving process at a distance from fa- mily problems. " It had to be dealt with sooner or later, " Weymuth said. " The fact that stu- dents were adults didn ' t make a family crisis easier to handle. " While students might block out their problems when they were at college, holidays reminded them of the situa- tion. For some, divorces took away fa- mily members, but for others remarri- ages added members. With these changes came problems with devoting time to family members who no longer lived in the same house. " I would spend more time with one and it would make the other mad, " Laura Majors said. And when one parent lived out of state, visiting both parents was even more challenging. Tricia Dailey ' s father lived in California, so holidays were spent without him. " I hadn ' t spent Christmas with my dad since I was 14 or 15, " Dailey said. " 1 missed him, but I guess I got used to it. " Mike Perry ' s mother lived in Califor- nia, and he used his summer break to visit her. In addition to dividing time be- tween parents who lived halfway across the country. Perry ' s father never remar- ried, making it difficult sometimes while growing up. " Even though I was 20, there were still things Dad didn ' t understand, " Per- ry said. And Perry jokingly added that " dinners weren ' t the best in the world. " Some students with divorced parents felt they became more independent af- ter their parents split. " I had more responsibilities since it was just my mother and me, " Jeannie Rigby said. " I had to do all the shop- ping and basically take care of the house when I was home. " With added responsibilities, students felt they grew up faster and perhaps be- came more cautious of relationships and marital expectations. " I think I knew marriages weren ' t al- ways perfect, " Rigby said. " My parents ' divorce didn ' t make me not want to get married, but I had a better idea of what could happen. " Weymuth believed this to be true, basing her belief on students ' papers. " Whe n they wrote papers for me about their marital expectations, stu- dents who had come from divorced fa- milies had deeper insight, " Weymuth said. " That gave me fresh hope that the divorce situation would change someday. " n Debby Kerr Families no longer seem to be the same after students go to college and then return home for holidays. For some stu- dents, holidays were as stressful as school because they had to deal with family problems.

Many All- American awards were won and records were broken as the track team finished with a successful season. Although most athletes proved what they could do, one team never got to show its talent. Wrestling was cut from the athletic program, cre ating both disappointment and controversy.

That was the proper way to wear an Intramurals Champion T-shirt, it couldn ' t be purchased at the book- store; it had to be earned. The only way a student or faculty member could receive a T-shirt was to compete in the intramurals pro- gram. But with over 6,200 par- ticipants, it wasn ' t an easy chore. " Competition was stiff, " Robert Lade, intramurals director, said. " With divisions in fraternity, in- dependents, women, intermediate, recreational and co-rec, we had several levels of competition anyone could enter. We didn ' t have many restrictions and didn ' t charge anyone to compete, which made it easy for people to participate. " The number of T-shirts awarded didn ' t make the intramurals program a success. Lade gave credit to the participants for making the program what it was. The number wasn ' t the only tell-tale sign that intramurals was a success. Participants felt the same way, claiming the variety of in- tramurals games offered something for everyone. Students and faculty had 28 events to choose from, ranging from flag football to laser tag. Four events were added, including home run hit- ting, frisbee golf, laser tag and one- on-one basketball. " We wanted to offer a vari- ety of sports, " Lade said. " Besides the popular sports like basketball and volleyball, we wanted to offer new sports with a different twist. " But winning a T-shirt wasn ' t the only reason people competed in in- tramurals. Releasing stress and en- joying the competition attracted people to intramurals. " We usually lost, but we had a lot of fun, " Sarah Hassler, Phi Mu in- tramurals chairman, said. " No mat- ter who we played, we still were able to have a good time and promote sisterhood at the same time. " Participants learned a great deal on the playing field. Besides physi- cal fitness and other skills, they prac- ticed teamwork. Intramurals also offered a chance to get away from the books and a time to get in shape. " It was really easy to get people to compete for our floor, " Nate Per- sell, intramural chairman for second floor Dieterich, said. " It gave them something to do besides study. " Intramurals competition was es- pecially important to fraternities. A year-long contest for supremacy kept each of the fraternities involved in the program. " Competing was important to us, " John Strauss, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, said. " A lot of people wanted to get involved, and it was a chance to show off. " Intramurals wasn ' t exclusively for fraternities, however. Residence halls usually had teams, as well. Persell said participating gave the men on his floor a chance to meet each other. Although most people felt the program was a success, some were disappointed about the cancellations of some events. One event which was canceled prior to finals was wrestling. Because of the number of injuries and forfeits. Lade canceled the wrestling tournament, which caused some controversy. " Wrestling had caused some problems, injuries in particular, " Lade said. " It wasn ' t a good sport for in- tramurals in the first place, " Lade said. " There really was no way to get in shape and prepare for the event. Secondly, the participation level was fairly low. Wrestling took up less than -continued Intramurals 175 Intramurals build pride and competition 2 percent of our participants. " Aithiough Lade was worried about injuries, participants thought they could have been prevented. Some blamed the way " Round Robin " was used in the tournament. With this set up, some wrestlers found them- selves in three matches in one night. Others were upset because it took place at the same time as basketball games. " I was in finals, but they decided to cancel it, " Strauss said. " 1 was mad. Although the cancellation didn ' t hurt my fraternity ' s chance at winning supremacy, it still prevent- ed me from wrestling. 1 was more concerned with competing than with the points. " Student input played an important part in deciding what events would be used in the intramurals program. In April, questionnaires were sent to participants, asking them to evaluate the events. The survey helped de- cide what events would be offered the following year. " We were always looking for new events, " Lade said. " Our main goal was to bring in more co-rec events. Because a lot of the same people participated in different events, we wanted to attract people who hadn ' t competed and keep them coming back. " While improvements were made, problems solved and suggestions taken, the main purpose of the in- tramurals progam wasn ' t altered, in- volvement and participation was the No. 1 concern. Even though there was competi- tion, students managed to have fun and compete as well. If they didn ' t leave with a T-shirt, they left with new friends or a feeling of accomplish- ment.D Kevin Sharpe Tennis (singles) Frat.: Chris Patton Ind.: Andre Simpson Wom.: Sharon Perne Pickleball (doubles) Frat.: Mark Rodger ind.: Peter Rameh Wom.: Erin O ' Rourke Softball Frat.: Sigma Phi Epsilon ind.: Budmen Wom.: Wingets Track Frat.: Phi Sigma Kappa Ind.: Skeezer Pleezers Wom.: Skeezers Co-Rec Softball Skeezer Pleezers Punt-Pass-Kick Frat.: Dan Distler Ind.: Trent Petersen Wom.: Nancy Meyer Frisbee Golf Frat.: Delta Sigma Phi Wom.: Flusters Flag Football Frat.: Sigma Phi Epsilon ind.: Budmen Wom.: Misfits Home Run Hitting Frat: Dan Distler and Brian Younger Ind.: Trent Petersen Wom.: Jackie Hoover, Nancy Meyer and Mona Anderson Volleyball Frat.: Sigma Phi Epsilon ind.: Tappa Kegga Beer Wom.: Skeezers Battle-of-the-Beef Frat.: Delta Chi Kimballs Ind.: Oasis Studs Wom.: Skeezers Racquetball (singles) Ind.: Ed Yaqub Wom.: Nancy Meyer Cross Country Frat.: Sigma Phi Epsilon Ind.: David Law Wom.: Allison Benorden Swimming Frat.: Phi Sigma Kappa Ind.: LAGNAF Wom.: Alpha Sigma Alpha Whiffleball Frat.: Phi Sigma Kappa Ind.: Titans Wom.: Skeezer 1 Three-on-Three Basketball Ind.: Playboys 1 Worn.: Old Timers One-on-One Basketball 5 ' 10 " and over: Scott Leinen Under 5 ' 10 " : Bud Nelson Wom.: Kim Spriggs Hot Shot Frat.: Dan Distier Ind.: Scott Taylor Worn.: Amy Erickson Racquetball (doubles) Frat.: Dave Simpson and Kenny Wilmes Ind.: Tom Breedlove and Mark Roggy Wom.: Kelli Blackmore and Nancy Meyer 176 Intramurals On his way to one of two first-place fin- ishes, Robert Calegan tal es a big lead in the butterfly competition at the in- tramural swim meet.

Then they focused in on the action in front of them as the players did what they did best. With one final cheer from the crowd, the game was over. Standing up, they walked, not toward the exit, but to join their team- mates. Being referred to as a bench- warmer did not seem flattering, but many involved in sports did not mind being the ones sitting on the bench. " It didn ' t bother me that I had to sit out games, " Steve Stackhouse, Bearcat football player, said. " Play- ing football at the college level was something 1 always wanted to do. " Besides accomplishing a goal and continuing their sports careers, many other athletes who did not see as much playing time continued to be part of the team because it was fun for them. " Basically, I continued to play basketball because the others on the team were so nice and we all had fun, " Bearkitten Jill Owens said. " But 1 was young and had plenty of playing time ahead of me. " Knowing practice made perfect encouraged many of these athletes to pull on sweats and T-shirts and head to practice. " For me, going to practice was not that hard, even though 1 didn ' t get to play as much as my other team- mates, " baseball player Warren Jones said. " I had a lot of personal goals 1 wanted to accomplish by playing. Going to practice and work- ing at games helped me reach my goals. " Getting to play in scrimmages helped benchwarmers prepare for the time they were able to play. " Being part of a scout team dur- ing practices helped us to prepare, " Stackhouse said. " The scout team was the team that represented the opposition, and it helped get us ready for playing time. " Some athletes, however, didn ' t see much playing time because of injuries. Going from being an active athlete to sitting away from the ac- tion was a hard transition for some players. " It was tough when 1 first joined the team because 1 was injured on the first day of practice, " football player Preston Butler said. " I had hopes of playing, then 1 got hurt so 1 got placed on the back burner. 1 didn ' t want to quit, and I felt I let others down by getting injured. " Feeling like an integral part of the team was sometimes hard for benchwarmers, but fellow team- mates always seemed to help them feel like a part of the action. " 1 didn ' t always feel like 1 was part of the team, but the others remind- ed us that we were part of the team and the win was as much ours as it was theirs, " Owens said. " When we lost, 1 sometimes felt I was part of the loss, like maybe 1 didn ' t work hard enough in practice. " Lending support to fellow team- mates seemed to be enough to make athletes feel they were a vital part of the team. For many team members, words of encouragement were just as good as playing. " It was difficult to feel like 1 be- longed to the team sometimes, but doing something like giving words of encouragement to a teammate who was having a bad time, then watch- ing them go out and do something well was just as good as playing, " Jones said. " It made me feel like I was part of the success. " Athletes thought sitting on the bench had its advantages. They were able to practice and improve their skills, they were a part of the team ' s victories and defeats and could support their teammates who found playing time. Besides, as athletes sat on the sidelines, they could prepare for the next season and hope to find more playing time.D Denise Pierce Sidelines 179 .mMoJ, pint boosts ' Kittens to championship The Bearkitten tennis team had reason to expect a good season, returning from their second- place finish in 1986. And just as they had planned, the end of the season found them with an impres- sive 15-2 record and the title of con- ference champs. " We wanted to win the conference tournament, " Coach Mark Rosewell said. He had no doubts the ' Kittens had the talent to win, but he stressed the team also needed " a little luck. " The team ' s luck included staying away from injuries. The players were healthy and ready when the confer- ence tournament began, gelling as a team just before the tournament. " They didn ' t win it — they dominat- ed it, " Rosewell said. The team ' s high point was the conference tournament, but it was difficult to pick out a low point. " When we were 15-2, we didn ' t have too many downs, " Rosewell said. He felt the ' Kittens were one of the best women ' s tennis teams in Missouri, including those from the major college divisions. Although the team faced tough competition, spirit solidified the group and led them toward the con- ference title. " When it came time to play in the conference tournament, we had to pull together to win, " Kelly Leintz said. Not only did the ' Kittens pull together as a team, Rosewell said, but they also developed a close rap- port with the men ' s team when they were on the road. The ' Cats were primary supporters for the women, and when both teams won confer- ence titles, the contagious team spirits soared. The spirit of the teams brought them more than friendships and two conference titles. Amy Andersen received the conference Sportsman- ship Award in the tournament, which Rosewell felt showed the team ' s composition of good individual players. Not even Rosewell was overlooked when it came to recognition. He was honored as conference Coach of the Year, but gave Assistant Coach God- win Johnson much of the credit for the team ' s success. Rosewell hoped this success would increase the sport ' s following. Even though it seemed to be on an upswing, tennis did not draw crowds as large as those for football and basketball. Although the Bearkitten team didn ' t have much support from the stands, they found the winning spirit and made it to the top, finishing with the most successful season in North- west history.

The two teams were tied, and the MIAA conference champi- onship was at stake. The Bearcat tennis team triumphed by three and a half points. For the first time in 10 years, they took the conference title. The ' Cats ended the season with a 16-4 overall record, including wins over Division 1 schools. " 1 felt that our competitive sched- ule helped us tremendously, " Coach Mark Rosewell said. " Most other schools set it up so they could play easy teams, but our schedule ena- bled us to improve and to prove just what we were capable of doing. " The competition remained hot at the conference tournament, where the ' Cats were seeded first. " Every other team at conference wanted to beat us because we were ranked first and favored to win, " Jo- nas Norell said. " We ' d beaten every- one else easily, and Northeast had changed its lineup in hopes of get- ting an upset. " The team showed it could fend off competition and accomplish its goals, including winning conference, through group and individual efforts. Heiko Struder became the MIAA conference singles champion as a freshman. Struder also qualified for NCAA Division II national competi- tion but was unable to compete. Struder closed the year ranked 48th in the nation. Rob Veasey came away as second in conference singles competition. He ended with a 57-20 record in three seasons and a No. 3 MIAA ti- tle to his credit. Veasey came close to breaking Northwest ' s single sea- son winning record of 26, ending the season with 24 wins and three losses. Norell, Antonio Becerra, Chris Hall and Jorge Castilla were also standouts on the team. Hall won the match that virtually clinched the MIAA conference title for the Bearcats. " Winning the conference title was just great, especially since it came down to the last match, " Castilla said. " It made being out for tennis really rewarding. " Struder and Veasey also won the doubles championship. Becerra and Norell finished second, while Castil- la and Guillermo Reyes finished third in the consolation bracket. " Doubles won the conference for us, " Veasey said. " Everyone that was expected to win their singles lost, so it came down to our match. " Beyond the players ' accomplish- ments, Rosewell was voted MIAA Coach of the Year for a second straight season. Although the season was as suc- cessful as the ' Cats had hoped, one player wasn ' t satisfied with his performance. " The team met all its goals, but 1 felt 1 could have played better, " Castilla said. " 1 wanted to be in the top eight in the nation, but 1 got hurt and felt 1 played below my usual standards. " Still, Rosewell said he felt the team accomplished its goals. " What the University didn ' t quite realize was what this tennis team had done, " Rosewell said. " For the men and women to both win conference titles in the same year was really something. " The team members were proud of their accomplishments, neverthe- less, and they understood just what they had achieved: the ' Cats ' first conference championship in a decade.

It wasn ' t easy to see in a track team because most of the winners were individuals, but the Bearcats and Bearkittens felt they finally pulled together. " It had always seemed like we were more individual competitors in- stead of a team working toward a common goal, " Kathy Timmerman said, " But at our indoor conference meet at Central Missouri State, the entire team cheered the jumpers who weren ' t finished yet. It was the beginning of our team ' s bonding. " Teamwork was complemented by individual successes for the ' Kittens, including indoor All-American awards to Leticia Gilbert for shot put, and to Venus Harris and Kim Spriggs for hurdles. Running the 400-meter relay, Harris was the first woman from the outdoor team to receive All-American honors. Myrna Asberry, competing in the heptathlon, set an MIAA record of 4,414 points at the MIAA Championships. Teamwork was apparent on both men ' s teams with a total of eight All- American awards. Brad Ortmeier, who had previously won four Ail- Americans, received two more for his performances in the 5,000- meter run, in which he placed fifth, and in the 10,000-meter run, in which he set a Northwest record of 29:34.06. The indoor mile relay team won Ail-Americans after placing fifth. The outdoor 1,600-meter relay team also earned an All-American. Others were awarded for Philip Dew ' s 800-meter run, Bob Sundell ' s high jump in both the indoor and outdoor events, and Mark Pyatt ' s pole vault. Asa Young received an All-American for discus throw. " The team had the most talent possible, " Young said. " We could taste victory, and for once, we let it become a common goal. " Richard Alsup, men ' s track coach, said the team had to pull together to achieve those goals. " Track was a unique sport be- cause each member had specific work to do, and every success was earned alone, " Alsup said. " Yet, members scored well as a team if their performances were consistent. " Whatever their motivation, the team members did perform well consistently, bonding as a single unit instead of just competing as in- dividuals. With victory as their com- mon goal, they found teamwork as the means to a successful end.D Cynthia Angeroth T rack MEN ' S-Front Row: Tony Phillip, Steve Moore , Bert Lawrence, Jarvis Red mond, Mark Pyatt, Rodney Grayson Philip Dew, Mike Welch and David Wat kins.

Photo by Ron Alpough isappointment trails ' Cats despite victories With a second-place finish in the MIAA North Confer- ence, impressive wins over area schools and several broken records, the Bearcats could have called their season a success. But by their high standards, it was a disappointment. Throughout the season, the team took impressive wins over clubs from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, Lincoln University and Central Mis- souri State University. After those victories, the ' Cats seemed on their way to the confer- ence championship. But after two disappointing losses to Southeast Missouri State University, the team headed home to close the season. " We were disappointed about the losses at conference, " Coach Jim Johnson said. " We lost to Southeast twice, and we could have taken them without a doubt. Our people were better than theirs. We had a great team, and 1 didn ' t want to see the season end. " With their losses to Southeast, the ' Cats finished second in the MIAA North Conference with eight wins and four losses, bringing them to a 22-22 overall record. In addition, three individual and two team records were broken. Scott Weber broke the Northwest record for the most doubles with 1 6, and Scott Spurgeon set a new home run record with 13. Pitcher Kurt Hut- son tied the record for the most shutouts during one season. The team as a whole set two records: most home runs with 42 and most runs batted in with 26T The ' Cats had to overcome sever- al obstacles on their road to success, including a lack of pitching ex- perience. Eight experienced fielders helped compensate for weakness on the mound, and the mix of players gave the team its special " chemistry. " " Everyone got along great, " Brian Hetland said. " There was a good senior blend with many good young players. We had plenty of work to do, but the experienced players made it easier. " The ' Cats had spent a great deal of time pulling together, making teamwork one of their strongest points. " Those guys had a special chemistry, " Johnson said. " If a coach forced his team to get along and work together, there would always be something missing. I didn ' t have to put those guys together— they did it themselves. It was the finest ball club I could have had. " The comradery on the team was a strength the players noticed, as well. " We had a great mix of talented players, " John Witkofski said. " There wasn ' t much of a difference between a starter and someone on the bench. " Talent was evident in all positions, but Johnson admitted the team counted on good luck for part of its success. However, the team seemed to run a little short of luck in the end. Perhaps that led to the ' Cats ' dis- appointment. But although they hadn ' t achieved their goal of a con- ference championship, they had chalked up another successful season. D Kevin Sharpe gaseball Front Row: Scott Weber, Bob Sutcliffe.

" We had a young team but did the best we could to prove our ability, " Shari Meyer said. The young team managed a win- ning record of 28-25 but seemed frustrated by some of its losses. " We lost several games by only one run, and that brought team morale down a little, " Lara Andersen said. " No one likes to lose a close game. " Andersen said some problems stemmed from the team ' s inability to put offense and defense together consistently. But the records the women set didn ' t reflect those weak points. " When things did go wrong, we didn ' t blame each other, " Meyer said. " We had unity and made it through. " But things didn ' t always go wrong, as the ' Kittens demonstrated when they took the Simpson Invitational Championship in Indianola, Iowa. They finished the tournament with two consecutive shutouts. Shel- ly McClure ' s first two of the season. Meyer ' s RBI and Kathy Kelsey ' s two- run double in the last game against St. Thomas, Minn., clinched the tournament for the ' Kittens. The ' Kittens were aided by strong pitching, with McClure on the mound the most innings and Shelly Navara taking the most wins. The women also had a solid hitting pro- gram that pulled them through several close contests. in one win, the ' Kittens beat Mis- souri Southern State College, 3-1, led by Amy Erickson ' s two-run triple that broke a scoreless tie in the sixth inning. The ' Kittens also pulled off a 2-1 win against Southwest Baptist University thanks to Erickson ' s sin- gle in the eighth. Annie Melius had her share of hits, as well, setting many single- game records. She had the most hits against Rolla and the most RBIs against Washburn. Her grand slam in the double-header against Wash- burn was only the third in Northwest history. The team continued to gain recognition when three of its mem- bers were chosen for all-conference second team. Navara, McClure and Melius made the team, while Erick- son found a spot on the honorable mention squad. With their individual and team goals achieved, the ' Kittens proved they could overcome weaknesses and inexperience to break records and put together a winning season. □ Cara Moore and Robyn Brinks ' oftball V ' ' i V Front Row: Annie Melius.

However, talent on the playing field or court could have meant money for school through athletic scholarships. With 98 scholarships available, football received 45. In every sport, the scholarships were either given as the equivalent of a full ride or as a partial award. Director of Financial Aid Jim Wyant said each coach had the op- tion of dividing scholarships into par- tial awards or offering all full rides. That decision also depended on the scholarship budget of the team and the number of eligible players. Baseball, for instance, had an in- crease in budget from three to 473 scholarships. " We tried to help the most people possible with our scholarship budg- et, " Baseball Coach Jim Johnson said. Men ' s and women ' s basketball each received 12 scholarships. Men ' s Coach Lionel Sinn felt players met the academic and athletic re- quirements for the scholarships, ad- ding that 87.5 percent of senior scholarship recipients graduated. Cross country and track received 5% for each men ' s and women ' s team. Coach Richard Alsup com- pared the criteria for receiving a scholarship to those required for academics. " We expected them to meet ev- ery day for practice, which was simi- lar to homework, " Alsup said. " They also had to be competitive in meets, which were like tests. " Having an outstanding athletic career, showing exceptional interest in sports and demonstrating need were qualifications for scholarships. But once a partial or full scholarship was given, the athlete ' s work didn ' t stop. James Godfrey, who received a full football scholarship, felt coaches helped with the transition to college. " I was scared at first because I wasn ' t in as good of shape as when they recruited me, " Godfrey said. " But the coaches just asked me to do my best, so I stuck with it. As long as I did well and kept up my grades, I retained the scholarship. " Not only were athletic require- ments established, but scholarships also contained academic stipula- tions. Athletes needed a 1 5 on the ACT, a 2.0 GPA and were required to earn 24 credits toward their degrees during their first year. Although these weren ' t particular- ly high academic requirements, the load was heavy when combined with team responsibilities. Time management was the key to keeping grades up while devoting time to their sports. Coach Alsup felt his athletes were extremely success- ful, and most of his senior runners carried high GPAs. " Seniors were under a lot of pres- sure to perform well, especially with new recruits coming in, " Joe Booth said. " But first-year players also had to improve, work hard and be dedicated. " Alsup said recipients usually re- tained scholarships after the first year if they demonstrated a positive attitude. In fact, Alsup estimated 80 to 90 percent of the cross country runners typically returned. Johnson said he also had a good success rate of athletes retaining baseball scholarships. Unfortunately for athletes, there wasn ' t always room for them in the budget for their first year. " We might have evaluated some players as talented, but we didn ' t have the money to offer them a scholarship, " Sinn said. " We couldn ' t give everyone a full ride. " As athletes came to college, they accepted the tryouts, evaluations, restrictions and pressures of being on scholarship. Still, players seemed to realize their talent could go a long way toward the cost of their educa- tion, and worked diligently to im- prove their performances — both ath- letically and academically, n Suzan Matherne 1 1 90 Sports Scholarships student athletes must put in extra time studying and researching for class- es.

Without believing in a rabbit ' s foot, good fortune would never come. But with some trust and spirit, any form of good-luck charm was bound to make wishes come true. Among some of the most super- stitious people at Northwest were athletes, even though their beliefs weren ' t always traditional. A ritual as simple as eating a certain food was thought to bring good luck. " I started eating Spaghettios about two years ago, " Chris Swan- son, a member of the Bearkitten basketball team, said. " I didn ' t do it once, and it made me nervous. " Stacie Murray, also a member of the ' Kitten basketball team, started her good-luck rituals in high school when she found a penny before a regional championship game. " I thought we won because of my penny, " Murray said. " Then, I kept securely placing it in my bra for good luck during games, if I had lost it, I probably would have felt out of sync until I found a new good-luck charm to hold close to my heart. " Others stuck to tradition and rou- tine to ensure a good performance. Dennis Bene, a quarterback for the ' Cats, used the same hand towel each game. He also wore the same socks until the team lost. He then would purchase a new pair and throw away those he had worn during the losing game. " Sports were mental anyway, so if 1 was settled down mentally, things went smoother, " Bene said. " Some- times having the superstitions and rituals helped calm my nerves so 1 could play a better game. " Athletes often held to their beliefs, but they didn ' t necessarily blame their good-luck charms if something went astray. " There probably wasn ' t any valid- ity to the superstitions, " football play- er Jim Moore said. " They developed more out of habit than success. I didn ' t think the walls would fall in or anything if I didn ' t do it. " His preparation for games includ- ed sitting in the locker room in his shirt and shorts and putting on his left sock before his right one. " It was more of a procedural ritu- al, " Moore said. " 1 did things step by step for each game. " Although players had supersti- tious beliefs, they weren ' t always quick to admit them. " 1 hated to say 1 was superstitious, but 1 guess I was, " football player Jeff Baker said. " I had a specific proce- dure of dressing for a game. If we won, I ' d continue. If we lost, 1 would think through what i had done or hadn ' t done and adjust the procedure. " Richard Mace, another football player, also had a good-luck ritual. " I had kneepads that were two different lengths, " Mace said. " I had a bad left knee and put the longer one on it, as if to protect it. I guess it got to be more of a routine. 1 felt the difference if they were switched. It didn ' t feel right. " Whether or not their rituals were traditional, athletes continued to be- lieve in them. The main objective was to instill confidence in their abil- ities, and athletes often lived up to their own expectations. With some faith, Spaghettios could be just as lucky as a rabbit ' s footP Cynthia Angeroth Good luck comes for Stacie Murray through a penny placed in her bra be- fore every game.

Photo by Connie Carlson 1 94 Volleyball pikers ride out rough season " Frustrating " was the key word for Coach Peg Voisin dur- ing the Bearkitten volleyball season. Finishing with a 17-32 record, the team took a sixth-place MIAA finish. " Our record was no indication of our season, " Voisin said. " We played several close games, and it was difficult to lose the hard-fought matches. " Being new to the program, Voisin had to teach both the players and as- sistant coaches how to execute her new ideas. With the integration of those concepts, however, came hopes of winning. " Voisin had high expectations we weren ' t ready to deal with, " Jill Al- dredge said. " It was hard for her be- cause she was used to winning, and we were used to losing. " With the goal of winning half their games, the ' Kittens took on confer- ence rivals and played in many tournaments. At its own tournament, the team placed second, while taking third place at the Northeast Invitational. The ' Kittens also took home a con- solation trophy from the Peru State Invitational despite several injuries. Although the season turned out to be somewhat disappointing, some players were selected for MIAA teams. Nancy Pfeifler took honors on the MIAA second team, while Jill Tallman and Tanya Carson received honorable mention. Many Northwest records were also set. Carson took the record for as- sists in a single match with 45, while moving to second place for a career high of 1,829 assists. Kelly Cox made 215 saving digs for that sea- son record, and Tallman broke the career block record with 416, con- tributing to the team ' s block record. When the season was over, play- ers were left with extra time. But that didn ' t last long because returnees were expected to participate in off- season training. " Off-season gave us a chance to see each other again, " Webb said. " It was tough, but it kept us in shape. When we improved that area, it showed on the court. " Although the ' Kittens had their ups and downs, they proved their ta- lent through individual accomplish- ments. But after adjusting to a new coach and learning to play as a team, the ' Kittens were ready for another chance to show their improv ement.

The men ' s team looked forward to its season with high expectations. With five upperclassmen and three freshmen, coach Richard Alsup thought his team had great promise. After a few injuries, an early graduation and a student transfer- ring, however, Alsup said his team competed well but was hurt by its lack of strong, experienced runners. " We had a good season, but we were a long way from having a great one, " Alsup said. Injuries hindered some runners before the season started, although they weren ' t a major factor once the season began. The only exception was an ankle injury to Rob Finegan midway through the season that kept him out the rest of the season. Alsup said when so few runners were challenging for the top spots, an injury to any one of them hurt the entire team. After a fourth-place finish in the conference, several runners received awards. Mike Hayes was named Most Valuable Runner, Rusty Adams was named Most Improved Runner and Scott McKerlie was named Rookie of the Year. The women ' s team, under first- year head coach Charlene Cline, also had some handicaps. But its chief hindrance was inexperience, since no team member had run col- lege cross country before. " It couldn ' t have been a bad sea- son, since 1 came in with no precon- ceived ideas of how the team would be, " Cline said. The team finished with a first- place finish in its own invitational and a fourth-place finish at the confer- ence meet. Cline felt the women had good at- titudes and never let their inex- perience get them down despite their meets against Division 1 schools. Stephanie Kempf said after she and her teammates had gotten a taste of what running college cross country was like, they would do bet- ter in the coming year. Considering both teams ' disad- vantages, the coaches and runners felt their seasons went well. Both teams improved through the ex- perience they gained, and they kept their enthusiasm and competitive spirit intact. D Jeanne Bryson r ross Country Men ' s Central Mo.

Photo by Mark Strecker ats stumble after promising beginnings 1 This was it. it was going to be the year for the conference championship. The football players felt it, and so did the coaches. Noth- ing was going to stop them. The season hadn ' t started yet, but the Bearcats knew they had more than enough talent to bring home a conference championship. " We thought we were going to be strong contenders at the beginning of the season, " Brad Quest said. " We were looking for a conference cham- pionship. We knew we had a good team. The coaches felt the same way. " The ' Cats ' enthusiasm and deter- mination to be No. 1 was obvious. Newcomers to the team were amazed with the drive the returning members of the team were making. " Being my first year on the team, I found it hard to imagine being in the cellar of the conference one year and ending up as the conference champs the next year, " Kevin Kardell said. " But they were serious. They wouldn ' t settle for anything else but, and it seemed like they were going to do it. " One thing that really stood out about the team, Kardell said, was strong leadership. " There was quite a bit of leader- ship, not as much from the seniors, but rather the juniors and sopho- mores, " Kardell said. " That really im- pressed me, seeing the younger guys on the team taking charge and getting the rest of us fired up. " Because it was their top goal, the members always had their eyes on the conference championship trophy. Even after losing their first game of the season to North Dako- ta, the ' Cats still kept climbing toward the top. Their next two games made the team believe their goal was reachable. Their next game wasn ' t going to be easy, but the ' Cats knew they could handle anything thrown to them. Washburn was their next ob- stacle toward the championship. " Being ranked the sixth best Di- vision 11 school in the nation, Wash- burn was going to be a tough team, " Collin Reese said. " Defeating them put us on top of the world. There was no way to describe how we felt afterward. We felt like winners, and we wanted to keep the feeling going. " After the 29-27 victory over Washburn University, a win over rival Missouri Western would have moved the ' Cats closer to what they want- ed to accomplish. With a three point lead, the ' Cats left their third game of the season with another slash in the win column and a greater feel- ing of accomplishment. The climb toward the top didn ' t seem so steep anymore. " Beating Washburn and Missouri Western was a great way to start the season, " Reese said. " After those two wins, we knew we were going to take it all way, and 1 wasn ' t afraid to say that. It wasn ' t an exaggeration.

" The climb to the top stopped af- ter losing to Wisconsin-Stevens Point. They really couldn ' t put their finger on what happened, but they knew if they wanted to stay in the running for the conference champi- onship, they couldn ' t afford to lose again. The teams they were playing were tough, Quest said. Not once in the season did he see an easy win. They had to work hard to bring home victories. " Our schedule spoke for itself; it was tough, " Quest said. " Teams like North Dakota, West Texas State and Central Florida were real power- houses. Although the score didn ' t show it, we played really well against them. " Injuries were another obstacle for the ' Cats on their climb to the top. While there were replacements for the empty spots, the upheavals were hard on team consistency. " 1 played so many positions that were empty because of injuries that I never became an expert in one po- sition, " Reese said. " I wanted to help though, so 1 let the coaches move me wherever they thought 1 should play. " With only three games left in the schedule, the conference champion- ship was out of sight for the ' Cats, but they weren ' t going to give up on the remainder of the year. There was pressure for a winning season, and it looked like there wasn ' t going to be one. Tension was high between players and coaches. Although the players didn ' t feel the coaches were making the right calls, they still did as they were told in hopes of helping the team. " 1 played with my heart in every game, even when we were losing, " Reese said. " 1 played any position they told me to, but they held any mistakes against me and kept me on the sidelines for the rest of the season. " After the last game of the season, a 35-18 win over Lincoln Universi- ty, head football coach Vern Thom- sen resigned from his position after five years at Northwest. His best sea- son was in the fall of 1 984 where he coached the ' Cats to a 10-2 record and took the MIAA title, resulting in a fifth place finish in ihe NCAA Div. II final standings. Although Thomsen finished the season, his resignation was no sur- prise, especially to the players. " As the season went on and we forgot what winning felt like, there were rumors that Thomsen would either quit or get fired, " Dave Donaldson said. Although the season was a great disappointment for the team, many players did not blame Thomsen ' s coaching skills for their failures. " He was one of my friends, " Quest said. " He was a great guy and a good coach. Anytime a coach had a cou- ple of sub-par seasons, you knew there was going to be pre ssure to win. " Thomsen ' s replacement was named one month later after inter- views were conducted over a week- long period. Harold " Bud " Elliot, a native of Drexel, Mo., and a 31-year veteran of coaching and teaching, was named as Thomsen ' s replace- ment. His previous coaching ex- periences included head coach at the University of Texas-Arlington, Emporia State and Washburn University as well as several other positions. With the announcement of the new coach, returning players were anxious to get the next season un- derway. They looked at it as a fresh start and would get a different ap- proach to playing football. Whether or not it was the coach- ing staff ' s fault, the ' Cats had left the pathway to the MIAA Championship early in the season. However, with their former enthusiasm and a new coach, the players felt they could get farther along that path. Possibly even to the end.D Kevin Sharpe %j f .m J 200 Football Quarterback Dennis Bene looks for an open receiver, trying to avoid a sactc. Bene left tfie team before the end of the season.

Photo by Dave Gieseke Louis Jones, Harry Roscoe, Stan Brad- ley and Marc Baltimore prepare for a long road trip. Traveling meant killing time for many athletes. Photo by Ron Alpough 202 Team Travel i thletes go the distance for competition 1 Sweat socks, jerseys and Mikes were stuffed in duffle bags as teams piled into crowded buses. Classes and other commitments were put on hold as players got psyched for away games or meets. Athletes traveled to schools in the four-state region and even as far as Florida and Texas. Even though teams were fortunate to have an op- portunity to travel, basketball player Jeff Hutcheon felt games on the road demanded extra work. " It was a time to catch up on sleep and homework, but we had to be careful not to let our minds wander, " Hutcheon said. " We had to concen- trate on the game and work extra hard. " Hutcheon felt the team efforts showed on the court. " We did well on the road, " Hutch- eon said. " We had to play better be- cause it was more challenging. 1 had more incentive because 1 knew we were up against a team with home advantage. " Striving to overcome that advan- tage made for added pressure at away games. " We played better at home be- cause it was our own court and we were familiar with it, " Sandy Cum- mings, basketball player, said. " On away games, we got tired from the long ride, and the court was un- familiar. Also, fewer fans were there, so there was pressure to play as well as if we were at home. " Players tried to alleviate that pres- sure by finding things to fill extra time. Cummings said a lot of the women played cards and caught up on the latest news from teammates while on the bus. The football team often listened to music, slept or participated in oc- casional sing-alongs of " The Flint- stones " to pass the time, as tight end Rob Kloewer explained. But the activities brought team- mates together as they ventured to other schools, especially if they had an overnight trip. " If we stayed overnight, the girls would stay up late and watch cable and laugh a lot, " Kia Habisreitinger, a track team member, said. Swimming, playing cards and watching television in their hotel rooms brought athletes closer. " When we went to Texas, we had a lot of fun, " Cummings said. " We congregated in one of the rooms and talked, laughed and took a lot of pictures. " On longer trips, some had a chance to go shopping, while others concentrated on the game or studied. Although they were away from classes, athletes had to finish assignments and maintain their grades. " I found out ahead of time what was going to be due and got notes or took tests early, " Aaron Fisher, football player, said. While athletes felt most instruc- tors were flexible and willing to help, keeping ahead in classes was another pressure away games created. " 1 tried to do all my stuff ahead of time, but it was hard to stay ahead in all my classes, " Habisreitinger said. " Once in a while 1 handed in assign- ments late, but if I let the instructors know, they were usually flexible. " Roadtrips were financed by the Athletic Department, but different programs had separate budgets. While the men ' s track team was limited to how much it could spend, on meals and was often given cash. the women ' s track team was not, and the bill was taken out of the coach ' s budget. The football team was given a sack lunch on the way to the game and on the way back the team would eat at an " all-you- can-eat " buffet-style restaurant. Whether it was a short trip or a long one, athletes looked forward to competing on the road. For many, it was a challenging part of the sea- son they enjoyed, despite the pres- sure. Away games were also an emotional part when the team had to bring itself together. " After we lost, no one followed us, " Kloewer said. " It was hard to get motivated without a crowd. " During those times, athletes relied on each other for support. The foot- ball team chose a comical warmup to get their adrenaline flowing. " It was called the Bearcat thump, a little pelvic thrust to get us going during stretches, " Kloewer said. " The coaches made it up, and the team liked it. " Time spent together gave athletes a feeling of closeness, not only with their team but with other teams, too. " 1 felt I got to know the men ' s team real well, " Cummings said. " We were supportive of each other since the men ' s and women ' s teams spent so much time together. It brought us really close as we developed close friendships. " Together, athletes roadtripped to other schools in hopes of capturing victories. They put school on hold as they chose to pack their sweat socks, jerseys and Nikes for another away game. As athletes focused on victory and tried to block out pres- sure, they knew roadtrips weren ' t just fun and games.

After surprising MIAA foes last year and capturing the conference championship, the Bearcats weren ' t able to sneak up on any opponents. " Winning the championship put a lot of pressure on us, " Gerald Harris said. " We were the team to beat. " Despite surrendering the confer- ence crown to Southeast Missouri, Head Coach Lionel Sinn and his players were not totally disappoint- ed. Heading into the final week of regular-season play, the ' Cats found themselves one game out of second place and had clinched a berth in the MIAA Post-Season Tournament. " We played well at the outset, when we started 6-0, " Sinn said. " We also played well during most of the conference schedule with the excep- tion of a couple of poor games against Lincoln and Rolla. " Those costly games were a one- point, triple-overtime loss to Lincoln University and an 82-71 loss to Missouri-Rolla. Those losses squared the ' Cats ' conference record at 4-4. They rebounded, however, with a road victory over Southwest Baptist and a home-court win over Central Missouri. The victory over Central gave the ' Cats a rare season sweep of the Mules; earlier, the ' Cats defeated Central in Warrensburg. " It was the first time in my four years that we were able to beat Cen- tral twice, " Jon Clark said. " They were our big rivals, and it was definitely a highlight. " Clark and his teammates also knew Southeast was the team to beat, and the Indians dominated the ' Cats, winning by 22 at Lamkin and by 32 in Cape Girardeau. Although the ' Cats fell short of their goals, they exceeded expecta- tions set by the conference coaches. With the MIAA crown out of reach, the men still reserved five positions on all-conference teams. Harris was named to second team and Jeff Hutcheon, Bob Sundell and Louis Jones received honorable mention. Another ' Cat, Gary Hrvol, won a place on the conference ' s first-ever all freshman team, in addition, they accomplished their third 20-win sea- son in seven years, but missed a berth in the NCAA Division 11 Na- tional Tournament.

Photo by Connie Carlson 206 Women ' s Basketball Ife? w r ittens turn in record-breaking performances When the Bearkittens started their season, they didn ' t know it was going to be a record- breaking year for some of thenn. Kel- ly Leintz, with 39 points against Northeast, broke the single-game scoring record, surpassing the 37 points scored by Jodi Giles in 1981. Perhaps the highlight of the sea- son was when Janet Clark ' s efforts earned her the top spot on the career scoring list, moving ahead of Patty Painter, who scored 1,511 points from 1977 to 1981. " It was a great accomplishment, but I was glad it was over, " Clark said. " It would ' ve meant more to me if we had won the game when I broke the record. I was just ready to go on with next season. " At the beginning of the season, the team expected to win confer- ence and improve play with every game, both as a team and individually. " Although we didn ' t win confer- ence, we played good ball against some tough teams, " Coach Wayne Winstead said. " We played 10th- ranked Southeast to only seven points and CMSCl to three points. We had a tough conference. " The ' Kittens suffered some disap- pointing losses, finishing third in the MIAA conference. Allowing South- east to score 1 00 points was the low spot of their season, but it helped bring about improved attitudes. " It created a point where we had to pick ourselves up and come back, " Winstead said. " It motivated us for the rest of the season. " Winstead ' s statement seemed true as the team traveled to the West Texas tournament, billed as a mini- national because of the participation of 20 ranked teams. The ' Kittens came home as champions of the consolation bracket. " it felt really good to play the top teams, " Janet Clark said of the ' Kit- tens ' run-in with No. 1-ranked West Texas State. The ' Kittens pulled together when they found they wouldn ' t earn their 20 wins needed to advance to nationals. " Getting along made the season great, and I really enjoyed it, " San- dy Cummings said, " it helped us get through the disappointing times. " The season ended on a good note, however, when five ' Kittens were named to conference teams. Clark and Leintz won spots on the first team while Kim Zimmerman, Cummings and Lori Schneider received honorable mention. Despite their record, the ' Kittens accomplished a great deal, both in- dividually and as a team. Breaking season and career records as well as earning conference picks told the tale of talent and teamwork.

Budget cutbacks and lack of competition in the conference were reasons cited for dropping the pro- gram. Photo illustration by Kevin Fuller- ton 208 Wrestling restlin; goes down for the count Wrestling warm-ups, uniforms and headgear were collect- ed for the last time in spring. Mats were rolled for storage or loaded and taken away. It was not only the end of a season for the athletes, but also the end of intercollegiate wrestling for Northwest. It was the beginning of the end for the wrestling program when Dr. John Paul Mees, vice president for administrative and student services, met with other officials, including Athletic Director Richard Flanagan, to review sports programs. Mees said a continuous review of programs took place to facilitate budget cutbacks. The group considered many fac- tors when making the difficult and controversial decision to cut wrest- ling, including the availability of competition. Because Northeast and Central Missouri State were the only other Missouri schools to offer the sport, wrestling had lost its status as a " championship sport, " Mees said. Furthermore, while the Universi- ty contemplated cutting an athletic program, the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association welcomed four new schools, none of which spon- sored wrestling. That factor would have limited the ' Cats ' scheduling possibilities. On the other hand, tennis, which Flanagan said was also considered when cutting programs, was offered by all four new schools. Thus, scheduling problems became a prominent factor in the decision to drop wrestling instead of another program. During the team ' s last season, it had only two home matches. That meant excessive travel costs and low turnout at meets. Although support from fans was slight and the team ' s season was a losing one, Mees said those were minimal considerations. Funding proved to be a major fac- tor because the athletic budget had been cut. " When it came down to cutting programs, wrestling seemed to be the logical choice, " Mees said. The University considered the amount of money lost in tuition and fees by wrestlers not coming to Northwest, but the operational costs for the sport outweighed that factor. Flanagan said the wrestling pro- gram also had little alumni interest, and M-Club participation and Varsi- ty lettering were minimal. Still, the sudden decision to drop the program was a shock to wres- tlers who thought they would be returning for a better season. " We were shocked, " Mark Burrell said. " We thought we had a good season ahead of us with a good as- sistant coach coming back and play- ers planning to stick around. Then they just dropped the program. " Although the wrestlers were look- ing ahead to a successful season, some thought the team ' s losing record the year before was involved in the decision. " The main reason for our losing season the year before was our schedule, " Paul Mueller said. " We wrestled five of the best Division II schools. The football and basketball programs couldn ' t say that. " While some athletes were unsure of why the sport was dropped, others simply felt wrestling was not given the consideration it deserved. " 1 didn ' t believe the administration took much consideration into the matter, " Eric Peterson said. " The matches didn ' t draw big crowds, but we weren ' t promoted either. " Paul Meyering also felt no one had really supported the team during its last season. " If you didn ' t have anybody be- hind you. it was discouraging to put forth all that effort and time, " Meyer- ing said. Since wrestling was no longer offered as an intercollegiate sport, Burrell decided to start a wrestling club and even wrestle independent- ly in competition. " 1 was disappointed because it was an active sport I felt was strong- ly followed, " Burrell said. " 1 was just trying to keep it going with the wrestling club. " Both Mees and Flanagan felt the administration couldn ' t support a competitive club, but they could al- low a self-supporting wrestling or- ganization that would function in- dependently like other University groups. " There were so many things in- volved with starting a club that we couldn ' t be involved, " Flanagan said. " They would need to insure them- selves and provide equipment, spon- sors and transportation. " Players were surprised, as well as disappointed, about the controver- sial decision to cut wrestling, a pro- gram they believed was worthwhile and had the potential to yield a win- ning season. Flanagan, whose son wrestled, felt he understood their disappointment. " I ' m sure they felt unhappy about it, " Flanagan said. " It was really too bad it had to be wrestling. They were an extremely independent bunch of athletes. " With the sudden and controversial end of the wrestling program, some athletes chose to transfer to other universities to continue wrestling competitively, while others stayed to help establish a wrestling club. Whether continuing with their sport or experimenting with other in- terests, the athletes were pinned by a decision in which they felt they had no say. But the disappointed men were still " independent athletes. " They were still wrestlers.

In spring, the group planned its Accounting Day activities. Professionals discussed differ- ent areas of accounting throughout the day, and the group held its annual picnic in :he evening. " We had a lot of younger students as members, so we uvere more involved with activi- :les, " president Linda Bixler ;aid. " The younger members ;howed a lot of interest in the ' accounting field. " he Ag Business Econ- omics Club was open to II ag business majors. Those n the group were drawn ogether by their common in- erest in the field of agricultur- al business. The group ' s purpose was to stimulate the interests of those planning careers in ag business and economics. The group gained informa- tion from guest speakers who discussed how the agriculture business operated. " Ag Business Club was a good group for me because 1 gained a better understanding of how businesses work, " presi- dent Kevin Royal said. Even though the economic future of agriculture was dim, the interest of students plan- ning careers in agriculture or ag-related fields was strong. Although Ag Ambassa- dors formed more than three years before, it had been a recognized campus organiza- tion for only a year. To become an Ag Ambass- ador, someone who aided in the recruitment of agriculture students, one had to maintain a 2.5 GPA and be active in the Department of Agriculture. Recruiting tours included trips to the Future Farmers of America Convention in Kansas City and the Farm Progress Show in Des Moines. When prospective students visited campus, the ambas- sadors provided tours of the University ' s property, including land, equipment and animals. " We tried to make agricul- ture students aware of what was available to them and ease the transition from high school to college, " president Clinton Weddle said. Ag Club united students who were interested in agriculture, regardless of their majors. The club was one of the lar- gest independent organiza- tions on campus with over 100 members. The group ' s activities includ- ed a fall hayride and barn- warming dance. Ag Club showed its spirit during Homecoming, taking first place in individual and group clowns. It also claimed second in the independent float competition and first for its jalopy. These wins led the group to overall Homecoming Supremacy for independents. Besides providing service and fellowship, Ag Club provid- ed career opportunities for its members.

The council helped plan the Ag Banquet and assisted with choosing winners for depart- mental scholarships. Many of those scholarships were presented at the banquet, where students from various areas of the agriculture field were able to meet. " Ag Council gave me a chance to gain knowledge of other ag-related majors, and it developed a solid base for the Department of Agriculture, " Kel ley Langford said. Agronomy Club united students who were in- terested in field-crop produc- tion and soil management. Fundraising and planning activities took up much of the group ' s time. As a service project, the group helped with the intercollegiate crops con- test and the Future Farmers of America spring and fall field crops contest. Funds were raised by selling plant and seed mounts to FFA chapters and were spent on pizza parties and educational trips.

Because Chi Phi was not part of a national organization, members worked especially hard to fund their own events, selling carnations, candy canes and valentines for holidays.

FCA had been one of the smallest organiza- tions on campus, but it be- came one of the largest organi- zations, with more than 100 members. FCA was an organization that allowed students to gather for fellowship and learn more about Christian living. Through Bible studies, discussions, singing and activities, mem- bers felt they became spiritu- ally stronger. " It was a good time for fel- lowship with others, " Sherri Adelman said.

" Although FCA ' s primary source of fellowship was through weekly meetings, the group reached beyond the University to offer guidance to two high school FCA chapters. Members traveled to the schools to help lead meetings, answer questions about col- lege life and generate discus- sions. Financial Management Association was an or- ganization devoted to introduc- ing finance majors to their field of interest. To be a member of FMA, students had to be finance majors; however, members with a 3.0 GPA who had com- pleted 12 hours of finance classes could be members of the FMA Honor Society. FMA taught its members about the professional world and career opportunities in finance by inviting guest speakers to meetings. Mem- bers also went on a field trip to the Federal Reserve and Board of Trade in Kansas City where they received informafion on the financial world, graduate schools and job descriptions. Vice president Paul Meyer- ing felt the club was beneficial to his finance education. " The club was there to or- ganize people with similar in- terests so we could further our opportunities as finance ma- jors, " Meyering said. Rebuilding was the major concern of the Flag Corps. With a corps consisting of mostly freshmen, the group ' s two veterans had the responsibility of instilling dedi- cation in the organization.

Harambee took steps toward reorganization, hoping to unite with black organizations at Missouri Western and Tarkio Colleges. " I felt Harambee had been disorganized in the past, " Balentine said. " I tried to make a fresh start and look to the future. " Members of the Horticul- ture Club made their in- terest in plants pay off through plant sales on campus. The members grew a varie- ty of plants and flowers for sales each semester. Proceeds from the sales went toward funding the group ' s annual trip to the Mis- souri Botanical Garden in St. Lxjuis. " The students learned how to grow and care for plants and gained a better understanding of them, " sponsor Joanne Wynne said. " It was something they could enjoy the rest of their lives. " Hudson Hall Council was finally able to do more than window shop. After a year of planning and budg- eting, the group purchased a large-screen television for its main lounge and a video cas- sette recorder. " Hall Council provided a per- fect opportunity for Hudson ' s residents to get involved with hall improvements, " president Dacia Jenkins said. The group hosted its first Mr. University contest in spring, and plans were made to make the competition an annual event. Applications were sent to University organizations, and five applicants were chos- en to compete in the competition.

The council provided regu- lations for the seven fraterni- ties ' activities, including Rush. " The fraternity system had one of its largest pledge class- es in the fall, " vice president Kyle Bjork said. Any violations of Rush regu- lations were reviewed by a dis- crepancy panel of the council.

IFC members helped set up and dismantle the Winter Wonderland display in Franklin Park and cleaned up after Greek Week activities. Among the International Student Organization ' s accomplishments for the year were placing second in the men ' s intramural volleyball competition and hosting a mix- er at the Alumni House in September.

A highlight for the group was attending a state confer- ence at the Lake of the Ozarks, where members talked with first-year teachers, attended music education workshops and compared notes with other students. " The conference was really a big help because it gave us a chance to talk to first year teachers and find out what the teaching world was like, " Tina Preuss said. Sometimes living on cam- pus was a challenge when dealing with noise, rules and regulations and lack of priva- cy and space. But for mem- bers of National Residence Hall Honorary, on-campus liv- ing proved to be a pleasant experience. " National Residence Hall Honorary gave me a chance to get to know more people while gaining responsibility and working with the administra- tion, " secretary Barb Allen said. Although the organization ' s membership dwindled over past years, members began rebuilding by revising the con- stitution, laying down member- ship criteria and following up with a membership drive. The Newman Council celebrated its 65th year on campus. The council, spon- sored by the Rev. Tom Hawkins and Dr. Robert Bohlken, sup- ported and promoted activities for Catholic students. " Our goal was to bring Catholic students together and encourage them to utilize their spare time in a positive. Chris- tian manner, " Hawkins said.

" Things went better for the newspaper with Terry Harris as our adviser because he took an active role, " Molly Rossiter, editor in chief, said. A workshop in St. Joseph allowed the Missourian staff to set goals for the newspaper while bringing staff members together. " We sat down at the confer- ence and set up an entire plan for what we wanted to do with the newspaper, " Rossiter said. " We had a lot of building to do because we hadn ' t all worked together before, but we got to know each other better and were able to turn out a suc- cessful paper. " Being a Missourian staff member had its rewards when the paper came out. " I knew that what went out was all our doing, and that was something to be proud of, " Rossiter said. North and South Complex Hall Councils combined to better serve the residents liv- ing in those halls. The council represented the residents, planning programs and activities. The complexes participated in Homecoming with a house dec based on the television characters in " Alf. " Entitled " Out of this World, " the dec featured the popular space creature and Bobby Bearcat.

It didn ' t even plan any social events, but it was competitive. The Northwest Racquet- ball Club, although small in number and informal in its or- ganization, was as competitive as any organization on cam- pus. The sole purpose of the group was to provide compe- tition for racquetball players. " We only had about 10 members, and we had no for- mal meetings, but we tried to let interested members know about tournaments, " president Nancy Meyer said. One tourney took place in Kansas City at the Merriam Racquetball Club over Labor Day weekend. Dr. Kurt Fink, a sponsor of the club, grabbed second-place honors in the men ' s A and B divisions. Mey- er, competing in her first tour- nament, finished second in the men ' s novice division.

Panhellenic Council serv- ed as the governing body of four sororities and promot- ed sorority relations. The group, which consisted of members from each sorority, also enforced each sorority ' s national standards and assist- ed chapters in maintaining scholastic and social stand- ards. One challenge Panhellenic Council members faced was preparing for formal Rush. The planning and implementing process began in the summer in order for the group to be prepared for Rush in the fall. " We met a lot of our goals and were able to get many par- ticipants, " secretary Judith Thompson said. " That enabled us to endure one of the most successful Rushes ever. " Other activities included selling popcorn, welcoming alumni during Homecoming, organizing the Winter Wonder- land scene at Franklin Park and showing a video tape on alcohol awareness to sororities. Members represented Univ- ersity Greeks at the Mid- American Inter-Fraternal Council Association Mid- American Panhellenic Council Association conference in St. Louis. Leaders from all greek organizations attended the conference and exchanged ideas to bring back to their chapter. " The conference benefited the chapters tremendously b e- cause we were able to bring back ideas to share with our own sorority, " vice president Ann Reichert said. Together with Inter- Fraternity Council, Panhellen- ic Council made a banner which welcomed all greek alumni to Homecoming festivities. During Freshman Orienta- tion and throughout the year. Peer Advisers, a first- year organization, helped freshmen find their way around campus, choose classes and improve study habits. Highlights of the year includ- ed a reception at the home of sponsor Dr. Betty Bush and a dinner with President Dean Hubbard. " I enjoyed working with freshmen, " Julie Delong said. " They needed peer advisers to teach them things upperclass- men took for granted. " Delong added that fresh- men came to peer advisers with problems they would have been uncomfortable discuss- ing with faculty members. Providing the residents of Perrin Hall with education- al and recreational activities was the purpose of Perrin Hall Council. Those goals were partially met by sharing the holiday spirit with the men of Dieterich Hall through secret Santa and secret valentine projects. The big project of the coun- cil was the use of hall funds to refurnish the lounge. " Hall council was fun when we got something done, " presi- dent Beth Scheulen said.

Members of the honorary provided a history lesson with its Taste of History dinner, an annual event started in 1982 by Tom Carneal, assistant professor of history. Taste of History gave stu- dents the opportunity to sam- ple dishes ranging in origin from the Old South to Modern France. " Taste of History went over extremely well, " vice president Joe Baumli said. " We had a fantastic turnout of about 450 people. It gave people the op- portunity to sample foods they might not normally try. " In addition, the group spon- sored its annual contest for Foods from different historical backgrounds are served at the Taste of History dinner by Nancy Thermas.

The group also planned lec- tures by guest speakers and a trip to Truman Library in Independence. Renewed Interest brought Phi Beta Lambda, an or- ganization for business stu- dents, back from its one-year hiatus. " Phi Beta Lambda not only promoted a sense of civic and personal responsibility, but it also gave exposure to the bus- iness world, as well, " Nancy Zeliff said. The organization consisted of business majors interested in developing their skills in the areas of business, office occu- pations and business educa- tion. In December, the group toured the Federal Reserve Bank and DST Inc. in Kansas City. The chapter was involved in the construction of Winter Wonderland in Franklin Park and assisted with Future Busi- ness Leaders of America dis- trict contest and high school district business contest. Phi Eta Sigma was a fresh- man honor society, and anyone with a 3.5 GPA at the end of his freshman year could join. " Its main goal was to en- courage and reward high scholastic achievement among freshmen, " president Polly Brewer said. She added that Phi Eta Sigma wasn ' t a social fraternity, but members still or- ganized enjoyable activities. The events included their in- duction ceremony, a pizza party and a Christmas party. As a special spring event, the group met for dinner at the Hitching Post before attending a performance of " My Fair Lady. " Phi Eta Sigma also hai philanthropic endeavors tha followed their academic na ture. It offered two scholar ships for members and spon sored a drug rehabilitatioi center for teens at St. Franci Hospital. The members of Phillipj Hall Council channele much of their energy into projects that benefited the hal and its residents.

Pi Kappa Delta, also known as " Communica- tion Inc, " demonstrated its public speaking talents at university speech contests in Il- linois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, South Dakota and Wyoming. Some members of the group were eligible for Univer- sity scholarships, but any in- terested student could join. Performance and dedication were the main criteria for the scholarships. Achievements for the group included sending three mem- bers to national competition at Bradford University in Illinois. Qualifiers included Lisa Robin- son and Stephanie Gonzalez in persuasive speaking and Jeff Haney in poetry reading. Many of the members who did not qualify for nationals won their divisions in contests held in the six-state area. Aside from scholarships, traveling and national recogni- tion, the organization offered experience that could be ap- plied outside the classroom. " Being an active member of Pi Kappa Delta enhanced my verbal and written communica- tion skills, " Deb Swearingin said. The promotion of scholar- ly activities in mathemat- ics was what Pi Mu Epsilon was all about. The requirement for the or- ganization was a 3.5 GPA in math courses as a junior or senior or a 4.0 GPA as a fresh- man or sophomore. Their main money-making project was selling textbooks during the Math Olympiad which included high school students from throughout the area.

The Psychology Sociology Club brought together stu- dents with interest in the fields of psychology and sociology, more than doubling its mem- bership roster during fall semester. The group hoped to make students more aware of studies and applications in psychology through projects, speakers and field trips.

Although full presentation included the American, Mis- souri, Army and Northwest flags, presentation at home football and basketball games usually included only the American and Army flags. " Presenting the colors at various events showed our respect for those who fought in war, " Julie Wallace said.

' It was a good experience to D around other women who Are interested in my profes- n, " Sheryl Warren said. SO, with new members it gj ' e me a chance to meet d ' erent people. " The group also sponsored a Seetheart Dance with their ther fraternity. Phi Mu Ai- M Sinfonia. Supporting the ideals of free press was what Sig- ma Delta Chi, the Society of Professional Journalists, was all about. One of the ways members promoted their cause was by continuing their program " Meet the Campus Press, " which aired on KNWTTV. " We addressed student is- sues that were relevant on campus, but we did it a little differently, " Mike Dunlap said. " It was more casual since it was more like a round-table discus- sion rather than a panel shoot- ing questions. " For National Freedom of In- formation Day, SDX members had free press laws printed on wallet-sized cards to make stu- dents aware of their rights. Nothing brightened dorm rooms like green plants. That was why Sigma Gamma Epsilon, the national geology honorary, thought a plant sale would be a good fund-raiser. President Rob Rohlfs said the plant sales were successful, and the group sold over half the plants on the first day. Money made from the plant sale was used to purchase rocks and minerals for the Department of Geology Geo- graphy museum. " We bought fossils and minerals from the Kansas City Gem and Mineral Show and donated them to the museum in Garrett-Strong, " Rohlfs said. Promoting scholarship by emphasizing academics was the purpose of Sigma Pi Sigma. Formed in the fall, members were recipients of Presidential Scholarships, which were awarded to select- ed freshmen who scored 28 on the ACT and graduated in the upper 5 percent of their graduating classes. But the requirements didn ' t end there. Freshmen had to have a minimum GPA of 3.3, while the upperclassmen needed a 3.5 to renew their scholarships. Although the emphasis was on scholastics, social events were also planned. Guest speakers and field trips to the Nelson Art Gallery, the Kansas City Symphony and a Kansas City Royals game were events members organized. " I made friends with people 1 wouldn ' t have met if it wasn ' t for Sigma Pi Sigma, " Tanja Miner said. One of the jobs the mem- bers had was tutoring students at the " Hub. " Located in the library, Sigma Pi Sigma worked with the Talent Development Center to establish free tutori- al assistance. 5 ' 1 ' In the lobby of Garrett-Strong, Sigma Gamma Epsilon member Rob Rohlfs convinces a customer to purchase a plant.

While Sigma Soci- ety devoted its time to service, it also hoped to gain good rap- port between the community and students. " Through Sigma Society, 1 became more involved and more in contact with the com- munity, " Catherine Shuler said. Members helped with the Winter Wonderland, babysat at Parents as First Teachers meet- ings and participated in the " Special Friends " program in which members spent time with children from Eugene Field Elementary School. The theme for the annual Bridal Show was " From This Day Forward, " and instead of holding the event in the Ball- room as in previous years, the group held the program in Charles Johnson Theater.

" Learning to deal with a classroom of students was not easy. However, the Stu- dent Missouri State Teachers Association gave its members a professional outlook on teaching. The preparation of future teachers was the purpose of the organization. Alumni spoke at some of the group ' s meetings about their ex- periences as teachers. Richard New, chairman of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, also spoke to the group about discipline in the classroom. " Through guest speakers, learned more about discipline and gifted students, " Tina Hut- ton said. " The group helped prepare me for the teaching world. " Dedication was a word the Steppers, the pompon drill team, carried out in their daily practices. Their rehear- sals prepared them for perfor- mances at home football and basketball games. " All the squad ' s practicing was worth the effort, " Melinda McNeely said. " 1 made a lot of friends and had fun through my experiences as a Stepper. " The group also performed at special events.

University Players 261 € OMMON cause Wesley Center was affiliated with the United Methodist Church, but many members were from different religious backgrounds. The Ministry Center served not only as a place for students to worship, but also to gather with friends for support, companionship and recreation. " 1 enjoyed the people and 1 made great friends, " Sharon Kenagy said. " It was religious, but in a casual way. " Sunday dollar suppers were a natural success with stu- dents, while mid-week worship was also well attended. " It was somewhere to go to relieve tension, " Kenagy said. Members took part in a statewide canoe trip, a nation- al convention called Jubilee, a summer trip to Colorado and hosted monthly birthday par- ties for area nursing home residents. The Young Democrats were devoted to the ad- vancement of the Democratic Party and to promoting cam- pus support of Democratic candidates and platforms. Handing out literature on candidates before the presi- dential primaries was a big part of their activities, along with doing volunteer work for in- dividual candidates in the Iowa caucuses. They also supported candidates on the state and lo- cal level. Each semester, the Young Democrats got together with the Young Republicans and held debates over the political platforms of their respective parties and criticized one another ' s candidates. " 1 enjoyed meeting political candidates through our projects, and I also learned a lot about lobbying skills and politics in general, " treasurer Sunil Ahuja said. The Republican party had a representative group on campus known as the Young Republicans, whose purpose was to serve the party and in- duce students to Republican views. One way the group support- ed its party was by distributing membership dues to several Republican political cam- paigns, an especially important task during the presidential election year. Anyone who supported the views of the Republican party and attended meetings could take part in the group. " There was a lot of en- thusiasm for the group this year, " Hope Robinson said.

Other activities for the roup included a raffle for $50 nd $100 prizes and selling arnations for Valentine ' s Day. he flowers were delivered, id the sender could remain lonymous for an extra fee. oceeds from the Carnations r Kids sale went to support the Children ' s Miracle Network Telethon. The group also planned to hold the annual Phi Mu KDLX Swim-aThon in spring, con- tributing its pledges from the event to the local cancer society. Halloween was celebrated with a masquerade party held at Molly ' s, and plans were made for a Luau where parents were invited to a picnic and Softball game. Other spring plans included a chili supper at which current Phi Mus and alumnae could get to know one another and alumnae could find out about activities. " Even though our theme was our common bond, we were each individuals, " presi- dent Amy Andersen said. " Others could tell how in- dividual we were by our differ- ent involvements. Phi Mu taught me to deal with many different kinds of people. " Two Phi Mus take statistics for Special Olympics events.

Included in their first-place finishes were float, house dec, overall parade, clowns and Var- iety Show skit. The fraternity won Homecoming Supremacy for Greek men for the eighth time in nine years. The fall pledge class was a part of that success. " Homecoming was a rare time when the pledges could actually become involved with the actives, " Mike Perry said. " As a pledge class we were really involved with Homecom- ing activities like the skit and the house dec. It felt really good to know we were a major part of that success. " Also active in the communi- ty, the Phi Sigs helped set up the Winter Wonderland display in Franklin Park, contributed to the Heart Association and sponsored a Christmas party for Headstart children. Russell Runge felt the group strived to keep everyone ac- tive, from grades to in- tramurals, taking pride in their accomplishments. This pride even carried on after gradua- tion as the Phi Sigs had an ac- tive alumni group in Kansas City that participated in soccer and Softball games. Members of Sigma Phi Epsilon proved to be winners as they swept champi- onship titles in intramural volleyball and football. The Sig Eps also continued the tradition of their Fight Night boxing matches. " Fight Night provided a place for not only amateur boxers to go against each other, but also students, " Chris Colhour said. While Fight Night was a promotional project, the Sig Eps also helped the communi- ty with service projects. " We held a canned food drive with the Tri Sigmas, " Kicking off Greek Week, Tri Sigs Lora Marker and Kerry Sallee par- ticipate in the Greek Sing. After- wards, Sallee rode in the chariot race. Photo by Kevin Fullerton president Rick Feist said. " The food we received went to needy families in Maryville. " In addition, the men held a fund-raiser for the March of Dimes with the help of local merchants and Inter-Fraternity Council. The program, called " Jail and Bail, " entailed arrest- ing merchants who had to call and find contributors for their bail. The fraternity also under- went a major change with the elimination of their little sister organization, the Golden Hearts. For Sigma Sigma Sig- ma sorority members, " bedrock " meant more than the stomping grounds of the Flintstones. The group hosted a " Bed Rock " dance at Molly ' s " ' with the men of Phi Sigma Kappa where pajamas were the accepted fashion. Social projects the group was involved in included a Christmas party in conjunction with the Phi Sigs for area Headstart program children. The Christmas party showed the community we were concerned about child ren, " Tricia Connell said. " n|iembeii gave people a chance to see that we stood for more than just social events.

" TheV Rebuilding could have " - been the theme for th« fiii " " men of Sigma Tai»e»° Gamma. Improving theii ' " " " " S membership, house and repu Isneii tation with the University wert ady some of the group ' s goals. President Victor Anzalom V " ' said one goal was to improve U the condition of the house. H jkms felt fixing up the house wouk k T ' ' bring together the active chap N™ ' ' ) ter as well as the alumni. j " Tlietf " We were really trying to " ' " ' ' ' ' keep ourselves together, " An ' • zalone said. " Our house was ir | said pretty bad shape, but once we pw " fixed it up, we thought w woif would be able to put every |il«i ' is thing else in line. " JTIiebi But the Taus didn ' t spend al« We of their time fixing their house iKEs. T Regular fratemity functions tt« m including mixers, theme par iKctia ties and informals continuec ipmber throughout the year. The Tau; also played an active role ir Homecoming. For the firs time in six years they entere a float in the parade and per forme d a skit in the Varietx Show. In February, the Taus host | ed the regional meeting of Sig I ma Tau Gamma. Over 1 5C I men from Midwestern chap ters attended. Anzalone said the year was a positive one. " We had a bad reputation with the University, IPC and the community, but we tried to change that. We really needed to work for the future. " Getting involved was what the Sig Tau little sisters, the White Roses, did both in the community and theii fraternity. " We decorated the Nodaway Nursing Home for Christmas as our community project, ' president Tammy Siebenmor gen said. " We also held a Christmas dance for the frater V i - 270 Sigma Tau Gamma I V-y " The White Roses assisted [ith summer work weekend in jreparation for Rush. " The guys built a porch for he house, and we helped with he cookout afterwards, " Sie- jnmorgen said. " We also leaned and got the house pady for fall. " eveloping leadership skills and learning to get jng with others were goals of |ie Tau Kappa Epsilon aternity. " There was always someone 3und to help if anyone need- I anything, " chaplain Jeff Kel- said. " There was always a I ' nse of brotherhood, and . ' eryone felt they could con- ie in someone. " The brotherhood helped to ovide a new honor to the ■ Es. They became one of e most recently chartered E chapters to initiate 1 ,000 embers. As a service project, the TKEs held a Halloween party for the children in their neighborhood. " Promoting community good will was our goal, " presi- dent Erich Beeson said. " We proved that through Easter egg hunts for the neighborhood children and neighborhood luncheons. " In addition to these social projects, the TKEs were also involved with the functions of their fraternity. " Every year we went to the Red Carnation Ball, " Beeson said. " It was held in Kansas City, and it provided a place for alumni and active TKEs to get together for meetings. " The men also held a Sweetheart Dance for their lit- tle sisters, the Daughters of Di- ana, at which they elected one woman to represent their fraternity in the National Sweetheart contest. To raise money for the frat- ernity, the TKEs held fund- raisers each semester. They sold candy bars and calendars, as well as raffling a trip for Spring Break. Assisting their brothers in Tau Kappa Epsilon, the Daughters of Diana were in- volved in organizing events for fraternity Rush. They went to Rush parties and tried to help ease the nerves of prospective TKE members. Other events included a combined Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner held with the TKEs. Later, the group deliv- ered gifts that were exchanged within Greek organizations. " Daughters of Diana was a great way to meet people, " Teri Rumpeltes said. " For some, it was the perfect way to join an activity without going com- pletely Greek. " Other activities included a Halloween party with neigh- borhood children. White Roses pledges flap their arms and gobble, trudging through snow and mud to com- plete one of their pledge tasks. Later, the women had to search the Sigma Tau Gamma house to discover the names of their big sis- ters.

Most students deduced that the Geeks, as they were ap- propriately named, were either dedi- cated or demented for devoting all their time to the Tower. Others spread rumors that the Geeks sim- ply enjoyed staying in an isolated office with no sunlight or heat, es- pecially on weekends when they were the geekiest. However, the real story of the Geeks never escaped the basement of Wells. They were much too talent- ed to devote their energies to an easy task such as producing a yearbook. Design Editor Colletta Neighbors, a mathematical genius, was the only bilingual staff member. Her " Letty talk " became the vernacular lan- guage among Geeks. Production Assistant Kevin Sharpe enthralled the staff with his directing, singing and smoking abil- ities. He was a unique editor because if he failed in the journalism field, he could join the entertainment indus- try. After all, his father owned it. Mike Dunlap, copy editor, had too many talents to name. How- ever, he impressed the staff with his cleverness by enrolling in an extra class each semester so he could later drop it to buy a sweater. The Geeks felt privileged to have Debby Kerr as their managing edi- tor because she was lucky. She won eating contests and had the staff ' s vote for winning the budget battle by paying for everything with coupons. Most Geeks were envious of Kevin Fullerton ' s talents, especially since no one had mastered the alphabet like the editor in chief. He remind- ed the staff of his special ability by telling them how much he L-worded them and that he couldn ' t wait to have the C-word after he was M-worded. Many students were unaware of Editorial Staff. Front Row: Kevin Fuilerton and Debbie Hunziger. Second Row: Kevin Sharpe, Mike Dunlap, Carole Gleseke, Katie Gieseke, Cara Moore and Sarah Frerklng.

After all, where could those abilities get them? Since 1979, those abilities creat- ed Ail-American yearbooks, ranking the Tower in the top 3 percent of all college books. The standard of qual- ity that made the Tower an award- winner demanded many talents from staff members, and it also demanded more than their spare time. " We put in a lot of hours, which wreaked havoc with our social lives, " Promotions Editor Debbie Hunziger said. " It wouldn ' t have been worth it if we didn ' t enjoy it or have goals to work toward, but we couldn ' t let the Tower ' s tradition of quality dwindle. " Working with a new adviser would normally pose a threat to quality, but when Laura Widmer took a leave of absence, Carole Gieseke stepped into the position with a goal to up- hold the Tower ' s standards. Like Widmer, Gieseke was a former Tow- er editor and wanted the staff to con- tinue the book ' s tradition of excel- lence. Even though Mrs. Geeky ' s role was a temporary one, it wasn ' t part- time. Gieseke had to fit yearbook around her job at the University Pub- lic Relations Office, as well as spend- ing time with her husband, Dave, and the Tower mascot, her daugh- ter Katie. " Carole went that extra mile for us, " Photography Editor Sarah Frerk- ing said. " She was fun to work with, yet she always helped us out when we were in a pinch. Sometimes it would ' ve been easy to give up on us, but she was always there to en- courage us. " Even though Widmer was only a phone call away, the staff tried to put their knowledge to use. " We thought it would be hard without Laura, but because she taught us the meaning of excellence and the importance of meeting our deadlines, we were still able to produce a book she would be proud of, " Ron Alpough, photograp hy edi- tor, said. Producing a book students could take pride in was a common goal for Geeks. And when staff members put their talents together, they com- prised a team that could do any- thing, including making a quality yearbook.

Students were tired of sub-zero temperatures, tests and over-booked schedules. Just when they felt they could tolerate no more, warm weather brought hope. Computers were still a hot topic, and improvements resulted in a near-perfect system. As more proposals were discussed, we became more critical of the Culture of Quality, and the extension of the academic year continued to stir controversy. Even with a longer semester, it seemed spirit was just returning to lifeless bodies when the year came to a close. Some would be returning, but others found themselves facing graduation and...

For the last year, I thought about what 1 wanted to say and whom i wanted to thank. It wasn ' t easy. The yearbook and the people I worked with have been a very important part of my life, and it ' s hard to let go. As an editor on the Tower the last four years, I have made many close friends. Words cannot begin to express my ap- preciation, but I ' ll try. My deepest thanks go to my adviser, teacher and friend Laura Widmer. Though her first impression of me was as an ex-art major looking for a place to fit in, she never gave up on me. Of all the teachers I ' ve had, no one has made a greater impact on my life. Also, your stories of your childhood and college years served as inspiration to us all. Scary, huh? When Laura took a leave of absence, she, talked Carole Gieseke into taking over as yearbook adviser. As the University ' s director of publications, Carole already had quite a bit of responsibility. As adviser she gave up her weekends, Monday nights, time with her family and any sem- blance of sanity (which was on shaky grounds, anyway). Someday I hope to be able to repay her for everything she did for us. Right now, all I can do is say thank you. Although I didn ' t always seem to appreciate them enough, I especially want to thank the Tower editors. Your long hours, unwavering dedication and many sacrifices make you the best. Of course, your insanity helped. Who else would heist a pizza truck, get caught using a teacher ' s photo for dart practice, almost get kicked out of a hotel and sing " Delta Dawn " to conclude an editors ' meeting? Thanks, geeks. Serving as editor in chief is a difficult and sometimes thank- less job. With that in mind, 1 would like to thank the editors i served under: Dana Kempker and Scott Trunkhill. Thanks for showing me what it takes to be a good editor You were great, and I ' m glad I had the opportunity to work with you. There are always people outside the staff that make put- ting the yearbook together much easier Bob Gadd of ICP always made sure the book was done our way; well, as close as was humanly possible. Also, without the people in the News and Information Office we never could have done this book. Thank you for caring when it seemed no one else did. A spe- cial thank you goes to Dave Gieseke. Thanks for letting us turn your life upside-down for a year. The yearbook was an important part of my college life. Ac- tually, it was my college life. I ' ll miss the yearbook and all those involved with it. The big L-word to you all. Kevin Fullerton 1988 Tower editor in chief
