However, Rich- ard Whitman left Maryville in June and cited personal reasons for his resignation. Instead of another search, President Dean Hubbard said the duties would be shifted among the deans. The shift was on at Roberta Hall as the residents dodged construction workers as they moved back in the newly-renovated hall. Lamkin Gym, another renovation project, offi- cially became the Ryland Milner Complex at a ribbon cutting ceremony during Homecoming. Locally, Gov. Mel Carnahan made headlines as he voiced concern over Hancock IFs impact on the state economy while he was here to visit the campus and dedicate the new Highway 71 Bypass and Mozingo dam project. Opening • 3 It was a roller coaster year. We had high hopes for the football team, but found a winner in the volleyball squad. We were scared with reports on the impact of Amendment 7 doubling tuition, but 700 newly-registered voters had their voices heard as Hancock II was defeated. We were disgusted with the media leaks during the OJ Simpson trial, but we faith- fully tuned in to get the latest information. During the year, we heard two bulletins regarding the White House as a Maryland man died after he crashed his plane into the residence and a Colorado man sprayed shots into the home on Pennsylvania Avenue. You never knew what was going to happen next, but one thing you could count on was it would come . . .

Locations were changed for some events, but for oth- ers, the rain was endured. Dating saw the light of the computer age while some of us chose to work and play after dark. Taco Bell came to campus while High- way 71 provided new business possibilities such as a Super Wal-Mart. Entertainment was abuzz with comedy and serious issues. Adam Sandler brought his adult humor and Diamond Rio gave us a bluegrass and country beat. The lecture se- ries provided controversy as abortion, women ' s issues and morality took the stage. It was a year that challenged us and also W provided fun.. .when we least expected it es as th Kw, e greeks shoWTth When the events of Greek Week were crammed into a weekend, the high spirits of the Greek community were not affected. In the past, a week was set aside for celebrating Greek hfe and helping out the community through fun and games. This time around, Greek Week was packed into one weekend. In an effort to alleviate the stress from homework, events were held on the weekend when students did not have to worry about the academic side of higher education and could concentrate more fully on the event. The Greek Sing at the Bell Tower kicked the weekend off and was followed by the competitive games held on the tundra. " It was just an incredible weekend, " Jennifer Noller of Sigma Sigma Sigma said. " This Greek Weekend will always be remem- bered because it was different. It in- creased participation because people did not have to worry about classes. " The real purpose behind the Greek Weekend activities could have been summed up in one word: unity. Many felt a strong bond not only between members of their own fraternity or sorority but also between other members of the Greek community. " Things were a little more crammed together, " Delta Chi Gene Gregory said. " The best part was hanging out with everyone because I had a lot of friends in other chapters. " During the weekend, Greeks also concentrated on helping the local Mary ville chapter of the Red Cross with their annual Rocking Chair Philanthropy. " One of the first purposes was to promote Greek unity, " Noller said. " One of the overriding purposes was the focus on the Red Cross. " Along with the time change, the Rocking Chair Philanthropy also undertook a slight change from the tra- ditional route. The chair had sat at the Nodaway County Courthouse, but it moved to the front parking lot of McDonald ' s. The Rocking Chair Philanthropy was a large event for the Greeks. It was hard to miss as people drove down Main Street. The Red Cross was not the only organization who benefited from Greek Weekend. There was also a canned food drive and clothing drive to help out the needy residents of Maryville. The weekend concluded with the awards ceremony where Alpha Kappa Lamda and Delta Zeta won most Greek participation and the Tri-Sigs and Sigma Phi Epsilon won outstanding Greek organizations. Philanthropy and fun combined to make Greek Weekend a success to all involved.

During Northwest Week, students had a chance to enjoy a stress-free environment. The weather changed rapidly, making for unpredict- able conditions. Despite the weather, the fun was not diminished. Fun Flicks kicked off the week in the Spanish Den by allowing participants to make their own mini movie or music video. The experience was captured on videotape free of charge. Students also had the opportunity to attend and par- ticipate in a two-hour comedy show, " We Can Make You Laugh. " According to Kevin Gogan, Campus Activity Pro- grammers president, the game show involved three comedians. The show began with a stand-up act which included material from their own personal repertoire. This was followed by a game show in which audience members names were randomly drawn out of a hat to appear on stage. Once on stage, the comedians each had two minutes to make the contestant laugh. " The comedians came out on the stage dressed in costumes such as a mother or the worst prom date a person could have, " Gogan said. " If the three comedi- ans did not make the contestant laugh or smile, then the person won $25. " Gogan also commented on the success of " We Can Make You Laugh. " " I had never seen the Spanish Den so full, " he said. " It was standing room only. " Another event during the week was Spring Spirit Fest ' 94 which was moved into the University Conference Center because of rain. However, the move did not put a damper on activities. " I considered the carnival a great success even though it had to be moved due to the rain, " Gogan said. Michelle Leeper, who attended the event with her friends, went horizontal bungee jumping. " It was a thrilling experience to be with friends and participate in the game, " Leeper said. If students did not enjoy putting their life on the line by horizontal bungee jumping, human bowling or Sumo wrestling, several other carnival activities were offered. " Some of the different sororities and groups had activities such as a sucker tree and we looked for the suckers with green dots and we got a prize, " Sarah Partlow said. Music also added to the excitement of the festival. During the carnival. Trio Aztlan, a Mexican American guitar group, walked around and sang Mexican music to spectators. Another group which performed during the week was Turtlemoon, an Omaha-based group, who opened for the Fishheads. The Fishheads performed a mix of reggae, rock alternative, novelty, oldies and island music. Winding up the bash, weekend events included a " Shake Rattle and Bowl " at Bearcat Lanes, Road Ride from Maryville to Pumpkin Center and a Mountain Bike ride in Beal Park. While there were many events for University stu- dents to get involved in, the unpredictable weather conditions did not alter the entertainment. The week not only brought out the daring edge in many students, but also created a fun diversion from classes.

Repaved park- ing lots and increased grounds maintenance were a few of the smaller changes, but perhaps the biggest of the renovation projects was Lamkin Gym. The original facility, which opened in 1959, wasonly capable of holding 1,500 people. Since Northwest ' s enrollment increased to 6,000, ex- pansion was necessary. " Northwest had grown so much that we really needed a new facility, " Annelle Weymuth, ex- ecutive assistant to the president, said. A lot of time, money and hard work went into the beautification process. Phase one of the project included completion of a $2 million Student Recreation Center. " Normally we ranged from 250-280 users per day, " Mark Goetz, a rec center worker, said. " The facility was a great opportunity for students to exercise and have fun doing it. " Phase two covered the remodeling of Lamkin. In addition to a new entrance with a circle drive and a resurfaced gym floor, new lights, bleachers and a new exercise physiology laboratory were added. Phase three included the new multi-purpose first floor that contained the fitness center, bat- ting cages, locker rooms, an enlarged varsity weight room and a state-of-the-art athletic train- ing room. In all, the project totaled $6 million. Despite the construction troubles and rain delays most people were optimistic about the finished job. " Although progress was slower than we had expected, we were pleased with the outcome, " Jim Redd, athletic director, said. " A lot of people put in a lot of time and worked very hard to complete the project. " The facility was dedicated to 85-year-old By Kelly Kepler Ryland Milner, who was once the athletic direc- tor of the University. Another large construction project included the " gutting out " of Roberta Hall. The $3.5 million project covered new carpeting, paint, lights and furniture. Residents enjoyed the luxu- ries of air-conditioning and a new heating sys- tem. The individual rooms were repainted and refurnished, and the bathrooms were recon- structed. Residents of Roberta had to pay an extra $200 a semester to live in the hall. Residents were pleased with the changes. " Little things like leaky showers, the smell of sewage and early morning construction work were a problem at first, but the air-conditioning made up for it, " Michelle MacMahon said. " Having an adjoining bathroom with our suitemates, instead of just one for the whole floor, was also a lot more conve- nient. " Construc- tion problems caused many unexpected delays, but as renovations were com- pleted, most agreed the fi- nal product was worth it.

Ushers donned in hard hats dodged puddles outside the under construction Bearcat Arena to direct people inside and to hand out programs. Inside, the scene was different. The newly- renovated gymnasium was chaotic as families tried to find seats and take last minute photos of the graduates. Seniors adjusted their caps and gowns while they gave hugs to friends and fellow graduates before the ceremony began. The graduates were seated prior to the com- mencement, a practice which started the previ- ous year, and from the crowd, family and friends could read the tops of caps which read expressions such as, " I ' m out of here. " After the academic procession. President Hubbard addressed the crowd. " This was a special day for us as a University, " Hubbard said. " In particular for this facility, Lamkin Activity Center. " This was the first commencement ceremony to be held in the newly-renovated gymnasium. In contrast to past years, the temperature in Lamkin was cooler and seating was not a problem. " The renovations to Lamkin made graduation a more pleasant event because the seating and the heat were not a problem, " Robbie Oehlertz said. William Session, 1973 Northwest alumnus and managing principal of The Session Law Firm in Kansas City, Mo., delivered the com- mencement address. He spoke of three points: vision, self examination and reward. " The primary reward each of you should seek in life, as I see it, is to satisfy your obligation to maximize those talents that have surfaced during your years here, " Session said. Session, who received his bachelor of science in what was then the cutting edge major of business and computer science, commented on the advantage Northwest students had. " You all just do not know how rewarding it will be by having the electronic campus experience, " Session said. " All of you have this experience. Only those who majored in that degree or program when I was in school had that benefit. But each and everyone of you have been exposed and I guarantee you will find you will be rewarded for it in the future. " When Session finished speaking, Hubbard gave out the Distinguished Alumni Award to Robert Tebow, 1952 graduate, and the Distin- guished Service Award to Edward Douglas, the past president of the Board of Regents. Patt VanDyke, interim vice president, pre- sented the candidates with their diplomas. The graduates left the renovated gymnasium to find the rain still pouring down. However, the rain did not hinder the day ' s events because the candidates were on their way to start a future as college graduates.

Boxes filled the hallways, parents and fresh- men made endless trips to their cars and verifica- tion lines grew longer as the hours ticked by. For freshmen, Advantage ' 94 was five days of unpacking, testing, computer training, meeting new people and adapting to college life. While many halls were swarmed with anxious parents and belongings, for Carrie Smith the hassle was absent. Smith and her roommate were among the few undergraduates living on her floor. " Nobody was there yet, " Smith said. " It was very quiet in our hall and very bare. " Advantage schedules were read over and over for last minute obligations. " I thought we would be really busy like every second of the day, but we weren ' t, " Smith said. " I thought we ' d have no free time, but I found myself sitting in my room a lot. " For others. Advantage was a great opportunity to become fa- miliar with new surroundings. " It helped me because it made me familiar with the cam- pus before the upperclassmen got here, " Jeremy Browning said. By Amy Duggan Even though learning where classes were was important to students, the leisure time caused many to think of home. " When I wasn ' t doing anything, that was more time for me to get homesick, " Smith said. " I knew a couple of girls who went home those first few days because they were so sad. " For Shelly Pfister, a resident assistant at Dou- glas Hall, it was her job to lend a helping hand to her neighbors. She answered questions ranging from how to use computers to when guys could and could not be in the rooms. " It was a little difficult because we couldn ' t have a floor meeting until the second day, " Pfister said. " So nobody knew the policies when they got here. " Comedian David Naster along with hypnotist Jim Wand both were returning favorites to give freshmen entertainment opportunities. While many activities were available for freshmen to attend, many found simply being with people was important. " I was really nervous and I worried about meeting new people, " Smith said. Pfister found that freshmen added to the ex- citement of the new year. " They always brought so much energy when they got here, " Pfister said. " It was a good time of the year. I got kind of stressed out, but then I saw them having so much fun, it brought me back up. " Along with the excitement came making new friends, meeting new people and experiencing life in a different way. J 8 • Student Life Advantage ' 94 • 19 Record number of friends and relatives attend annual carnival for football, food and fun Only one event brought hundreds of parents, grand- parents and children together for a fun-filled day of Sumo wrestling, goldfish races and football: Family Day. On a warm fall day, students and relatives flocked to campus to get involved in the various activities of the big day. Students found Family Day was a good event because it gave them a chance to introduce their family members to friends and college life. " Family Day was a great way for my mom to check out the University and meet all my friends, " Sarah Derks said. " It was great because it gave parents a chance to experience their child ' s home away from home. " After parents visited the residence halls in hopes of finding their child ' s room spotless , they journeyed to Mary Linn Performing Arts Center, where they were welcomed by Student Senate and treated to a perfor- mance by the University Chorale singing a variety of songs. " The Chorale concert was a nice, upbeat way to kick off the festivities, " Joniel Worley, mother of Stacia Worley, said. Families then found themselves wandering to the union parking lot for the carnival. Children enjoyed games from " guessing the weight of the Northwest linemen " to speedball to horizontal bungee jumping. " Fun Flicks " added to the celebration by allowing students to make their own music video. " My favorite part of Family Day was when I got to compete with my 10-year-old brother in the bean bag toss, " Bryce Atkins said. " I think we tied. " After the carnival, everyone packed the stands of Rickenbrode Stadium to watch the Bearcats take on the Emporia State Hornets. Families enjoyed the game despite Northwest ' s loss. " My parents came up from Pennsylvania for Family Day and the football game, " Eric Wentzel said. " It was too bad the football team lost, though, because they actually played one of their best games after the first quarter was over. " Some students took advantage of their parents ' visit, by asking for extra money for food, books or other personal items. While some students ventured out on the town with their families, others treated their parents to dinner in the union to use up their extra Aladine money. " I especially liked Family Day because my mom took me grocery shopping, " Joe Godfrey said. Some believed the lines were too long and the sched- ule was packed with too many events. " They should have stretched out the agenda, " Stacia said. " Everything was crammed into a short amount of time, and it made me feel rushed. " Although some things did not run quite as smoothly as planned, the reunion of family members was enough for most. " It was a nice social activity, " Anna Derks, mother of Sarah, said. " Unfortunately, families didn ' t seem to spend as much time together anymore, and Family Day was a good opportunity to keep communication open between parents and kids. " Complaints about lines dwindled after families be- gan to get wrapped up in the activities and saw first hand what kind of education their child was getting. Response showed it was a resounding success. ly Keple 20 • Student Life Joel Isernhagen and Scott Nelson cheer on the Bearcats during a football game against Emporia State.

Family Day • 21 Mother and daughter acting team unlock the mysteries of the heart in Broadway musical. By Amy Duggan Magical Garden T he scene began in India in the early 1900s, people were dancing in a large circle. Amidst the circle was a young girl blindfolded. She continuously turned around while each time reaching out for a willing body to help her. Within minutes, the young girl was left standing alone. The opening scene was from " The Secret Garden, " the Tony award-winning play per- formed at the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center in the fall. In " Garden, " Mary Lennox lost her parents to a cholera and one of the reasons this appealed to me was to have her epidemic that struck India, so she was forced to live with Archibald Craven, an uncle she had never met. In her new home, Mary not only had to adjust to a new environment and rules, but an atmosphere in which she was unaccus- tomed to. Ten year-old Becca Stevens, who played Mary Lennox, was the star of the show. Becca admitted when she played Mary, she not only found herself among friends, but was comforted while she shared the spotlight with her mother, Carolyn Stevens, who played Lily, Mary ' s late aunt. " The first time I had to rehearse a scene with my mom, it was kind of strange because it was not for real life, " Becca said. " We were just acting. " Other musicals Becca performed in included, " The King and I " and " The Sound of Music. " Carolyn, who had a history of acting, noted this performance was a learning experience for Becca. " I was in awe of her (Becca ' s) talent, " Carolyn said, " I was so proud of her. " Although Carolyn was closer to her other two children prior to the production, " Garden " brought her closer to Becca. " I was probably closer with the other two before the tour all by myself, " Carolyn said. As the story progressed, Mary eventually used her deter- mination and found a key to her aunt ' s garden that had been closed after her death. Colin, Mary ' s cousin, also experienced the joy of the garden. After being confined to a wheelchair, Colin took his first steps while in the magical place. This eventually brought Craven, Colin ' s father, closer to his son. Lars Kvalvaag, who played Colin, admitted what atti- tude one brought to the stage could affect one ' s perfor- mance. " I sort of had to get into the show, " Kvalvaag said. " Then I didn ' t remember that I was on stage. " Staci Maples agreed the actors ' performances had an impact on the show. " I thought they did wonderful for their age, " Maples said. " They either had a lot of experience or had wonderful training. " The play ended with the entire cast gathered in the newly-transformed garden which Mary and her friends had brought back to life. " The Secret Garden, " not only proved that uncovering one ' s secrets could be helpful, but could also bring together a long-lost family.

Diamond Rio first reached the music charts with their hit " Meet in the Middle. " The band was named Country Music Association ' s Top Vocal Group of the year in 1994. The crowd was hyped as the opening band put everyone in a country mood. Ricochet, from Omaha, Neb., had been together for a year and half, according to band member Eddie Kilgallon. " We worked with Diamond Rio for two concerts, but hoped to work with them again, " Kilgallon said. Anna McKenney believed Ricochet was an enjoyable opening act. " They were pretty good, " McKenny said. " They were like other bands, but had a different approach to the way they played the songs. " After Ricochet performed, the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center went black and Diamond Rio could faintly be seen walking onto the stage. Singing one of their first hits. Diamond Rio entertained a nearly sold-out crowd. The concert, originally scheduled to take place in the more spacious Lamkin Activity Center, was moved into MLPAC because of construction delays and slow ticket sales. " I did not think that the concert should have been moved from Lamkin to Mary Linn because of the fact that many people ' s seats got changed for the worse, " Angela Roush said. Promoting their new album " Love a Little Stronger, " Diamond Rio played a new single, " Night is Fallen in My Heart. " Diamond Rio also sang " Norma Jean Riley, " a song written by keyboard player, Dan Truman. " In high school and college, when a guy liked a girl, he did things to impress her, " Truman said. " If he had seen her someplace with a dog, he might have bought a puppy, that was where I got the idea for this song. " According to Marty Roe, Diamond Rio ' s lead singer, they did not choreograph their stage performance. " It was all spontaneous if things happened and it was cool, we ended up doing it for about a year, " Roe said. " We did not do a lot of choreographing persay; we just tried when we performed to have fun with it. We just let it happen. " Members of Diamond Rio said that they enjoyed per- forming in Maryville. " It was a blast, " Brian Prout, Diamond Rio drummer, said. " What a great crowd. It was not often that we got a chance to have come to a place like this. It was a wonderful experience. " Most students agreed with the band members. " The concert was really fun because people were dancing around and just being wild, " Jenni Nicholson said. " The highlight of the concert for me was when they sang ' Love a Little Stronger. ' " Neon lights and fog lit the stage as they entertained an almost sold-out crowd. With a country beat. Diamond Rio performed the hits that made them famous. Diamond Rio • 25 " Saturday Night Live " comedian demonstrates off-color wit for Northwest audience. By Amanda McManigal and Mike Johnson Adults Only Humor A small, shyly unassuming man walked onto the stage as the crowd rose to its feet with a standing ovation. His first lines were greeted with wild cheers and whistles. Adam Sandler, star of television and screen, was the headline performer at Mary Linn Performing Arts Center and from the audience ' s reactions, they got what they came for: wry humor and silly songs. Before Sandler took the stage, two other comedians warmed up the audience. Speech professor Jeff Przybylo presented material concerning his brother ' s band and " Scooby Doo. " " Shaggy and Scooby were obviously on marijuana, " Przybylo said. " They exhibited the two classic signs: always hungry and constantly paranoid. " Allen Covert went on stage next. He entertained the audience with bits on Maryville ' s weather and a questionable football strategy. " Our high school football team was doing real well, " Covert said. " Our coach got turned in because he was having his wife blow the players. What must he have said? ' Honey, I love you and you are beautiful. The team is doing poorly. Would you mind performing oral sex? ' " Covert said he liked to toy with real estate agents. " I liked to go in and ask them questions like, ' That was a nice wall, " Covert said. " I liked the paint color and everything. If I got blood on it, would it wash off? ' or ' If someone was screaming in the basement, could the neighbors hear it? ' and by the way, ' Was that your home number? ' " Covert, who performed only for the 9 p.m. show, said he did not know until the last minute that he was performing. " Adam said, ' Are you doing anything this week? ' and I said ' No. ' He said, ' Let ' s go do comedy, ' " Covert said. " I enjoyed it a lot and it was wonderful to be here. " Then, the wait was over. The man that fans had paid $16 a ticket for took the stage with jokes ranging from dating to impressions of his family to obscene material. His material also included a poem about Northwest. " Northwest Missouri State University-oh, you had to study for your test-oh, the library was the best place-oh, or go to Molly ' s and get shitfaced-oh, " Sandler said. Although Sandler boasted a budding film career with roles in " Airheads " and Steve Martin ' s " Lifesavers, " he did not feel the pressure to be the next Eddie Murphy. " It was a whole different generation, " Sandler said. " People didn ' t put pressure on me to live up to them. " Students thought he connected with the youthful crowd. " I thought the show was great, " Mike Bowling said. " Since he was from our generation, he knew exactly what we thought was funny. " Sandler put in an appearance at Molly ' s after the perfor- mance. " He was very nice and down to earth, " Cami Opp said. " His fame didn ' t seem to affect him much. " A nearly sold-out crowd reinforced Sandler ' s popularity with the college crowd. Although his act may have been dirty, the applause proved the audience had good clean fun. 26 • Entertainment Adam Sandler docs his " Cajun Man " character during his act.

" which paid full color homage to motion pic- tures. Everything from the house decorations to the skits in the Variety Show brought movie and television characters to life. Homecoming was an event which demonstrated the spirit and talent of Northwest students. Movies pro- vided a broad base in which to showcase this talent. The Variety Show got Homecoming off to a start with its first ever professional emcee. Although in past years. Northwest picked emcees from its own pool of talent, a professional was brought in. Comedian Buzz Sutherland kept things going with comedy bits taken from his marriage and his repertoire of six voices including Daffy Duck and a baby. A performer on such shows as " Caroline ' s Comedy Hour " and " Comedy on the Road, " Sutherland was use to working with audiences and handling heckling with comic put-downs. " I tried to stay really hip and in touch since a majority of my dates were college shows, " Sutherland said. " It put a lot of weight on my shoulders, but it got easier with each performance. " Kristi Hill believed that student emcees would have been a better choice than the professional emcee. " I thought it would have personalized it more if students did it, " Hill said. Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia ' s " Fantasy Island " was the big hit of the Variety Show, winning best independent skit, overall skit supremacy and the people ' s choice award. Combining singing with visual effects, the music fraternity staged a skit with the Bearcat football team sending Registrar Linda Girard to Fantasy Island. They did this so she could get a break from the pressures of college life and to find her a man. Winner of the previous year ' s award for best actor, Brian Bellof played Girard for the final year. He was unhappy about letting his character go, which he had played for four years, but was happy that it had gained such a huge following. " I really enjoyed playing the character and the audience response was terrific, " Bellof said. " It was a great character and fun to play. I had great respect for Linda. " Movie and television takeoffs ranged from older films like " Wings of Victory " to newer films such as " Ace Ventura, Pet Detective. " The skits had men playing women and women play- ing men. Best actor Ryan Stadlman won for his por- trayal of " Victory " in Tau Kappa Epsilon ' s " Wings of Victory. " Playing a stewardess who tried to calm pas- sengers of the Northwest airplane, Stadlman balanced feminity with physical dexterity. " I couldn ' t believe it, " Stadlman said. " I was totally surprised. I thought Brian Bellof would win because he won last year and got the write up. I was in the Variety Show to have fun and make people laugh. " Phi Sigma Kappa ' s " Maryville, 64468, " a takeoff of " Beverly Hills 90210, " won best fraternity skit and Delta Zeta ' s " Northwest Story, " a takeoff of " West Side Story, " won best sorority skit.

Homecoming • 29 son, Jeramie Kramer and Joseph Lopez wrote and sang a rhythm and blues song called " Mighty Bearcats, " an anthem of spirit for the football team. Three Men and a Melody, regular performers at the Variety Show, performed for the last time. They came out dressed as janitors and did the traditional parody of Northwest ' s greenmen. They sang George Michael ' s hit, " Faith " acapella. The group, which was comprised of Bellof, Chris Droegemueller, Brad Stephens and Michael Troyer, won first place in the Olio acts. Along with skits and music numbers, the Northwest King and Queen were announced at the Variety Show. The seniors were elected from a group of 1 2 finalists for the honor. More than 1,600 students voted in the first campus-wide election held on the computer system. This increased response more than three times the normal number who voted for Homecoming King and Queen. Doug Swink was elected Homecoming King and Shelly Pfister was voted Queen. Both were sponsored by North Complex. Swink thought being crowned King was an honor. " It was a very big accomplishment because I was getting ready to leave Northwest, " Swink said. " It was good to represent the University. " House decorations sprinkled the landscape of North- west fraternities, sororities and campus organizations. They showed school spirit by decorating the grounds outside their houses. On Thursday and Friday, many were busy getting their houses ready for the big weekend, cutting grass and trimming bushes as well as finishing up decora- tions. Alpha Kappa Lamda and Alpha Sigma Alpha ' s " Ju- rassic Park, " based on the Steven Spielberg dinosaur movie, won best house decoration among Greeks and also the award for best overall house decoration. Gilligan, the Skipper and the rest of the castaway crew were not left out as Sigma Society won best house decoration in the independent division. Although rain dampened many house decorations, the results of the effort were worth it. Jake Gronbeck, Alpha Kappa Lamda president, said their winning the year before pushed them even harder. " That was why we pushed so hard, " Gronbeck said. " We had to rush this thing. I didn ' t think we ' d get done in time. We pulled a couple of all-nighters and every- thing just came together. " The house decorations were not the only things to be seen during the rainy Homecoming parade. The parade, which included nine floats, 1 1 jalopies, 23 bands and many other entries from various organizations on cam- pus, attracted crowds even though it began amidst a downpour. The rain stopped though and the bands, ranging from the Kansas City area to Maryville High School, played on. Umbrellas and brightly colored raincoats lined the streets as crowds gathered for the parade to watch the multicolored floats and clowns. Candy was handed out and newspapers were offered to parade spectators by journalists dressed as old-fashioned newspaper boys. The rain drenched the participants and faded the signs on cars making some nearly illegible. Bands wore trash bags to keep the rain off them and their instru- ments. One float had three men soaking in a hot tub as rain — continued 30 • Student Life During the Homecoming Variety Show Olio Act, Kip M a t h e w and Marc Jackson perform " Worlds Apart.

The culmination of Homecoming weekend was the game against Missouri-Rolla Miners. First quarter blues plagued the team all season and hopes were high that Homecoming would reverse the streak. Against a murky background, the ' Cats battled the Miners while it intermittently rained and drizzled. The stands were filled with crowds enduring the weather and biting autumn air to see who would win the big game and whether Northwest could break its losing streak. Even though they scored the first six points of the game, they remained even with the Miners throughout most of the game. The ' Cats continued their losing streak with their 1 1 th straight seasonal loss, although a narrow one at 15-20, and seventh consecutive Homecoming loss. Players on the team thought they had a chance of winning because the ' Cats and the Miners were an evenly matched team and there was a lot of excitement going into Homecoming. " Homecoming had a lot to do with it, " Ryan Scheib said. " Everyone was really fired up about the game. " Scheib said despite the losses, the season was going better. " It took a while, " Scheib said. " We had a lot of younger players it took a little bit of time. I think although the scores didn ' t reflect it, you could see that on the field. " Despite unpredictable weather and the football team ' s continuing losing streak. Homecoming was an event that brought people closer together in Northwest harmony and spirit.

While some reserved the right to smoke, oth- ers wanted to ban smoking. Clayton Runnels explained why he thought people smoked. " I thought smoking was just like an addictive drug, " Runnels said. " Once they did it, they wanted to keep repeating it to keep that plea- sure. " Runnels ' father had suffered from health problems related to smoking which caused him to see the health consequences of smoking. " My father smoked for 43 years, had a few strokes and two mild heart attacks and had heart disease and emphysema, " Runnels said. " The doctor said that if he didn ' t quit, within a year ' s time, he ' d be dead. " Jennifer Wells believed that smoking should have been banned in all public places. Wells did not really hate smoking, but she believed that smoking infringed on her rights because the smoke irritated her asthma. " Everyone had the constitutional right to smoke, but I had the right to be healthy, " Wells said. Yukiko Tani was a regular smoker. Tani began smoking a couple of years ago, when she was hanging around with friends that smoked. Like her friends, Tani smoked to relieve stress. She smoked about half a pack of cigarettes per day, and under stress, she would smoke more. Sometimes, people gave Tani a hard time for being a smoker. " Sometimes older people looked at me like I was stupid, " Tani said. Tani o nce tried to quit smoking, but started again. She claimed that friends and food were her biggest obstacles when she tried to kick her habit. " I wanted to eat something all the time be- cause I wasn ' t smoking, " Tani said. " I just wanted something to put in my mouth. " Faculty members were also affected by the smoking issue. Russell Schmaljohn, an assistant professor in the Art Department, gave up smoking 22 years ago after he found out that one of his children was allergic to smoke. " I found out I had to go outside of the house to smoke, " Schmaljohn said. " I felt that was ri- diculous, so I quit. " Schmaljohn thought the health risks for smok- ing were well documented and that people could not miss that information. " I thought smoking was a bad habit, and it was a bad habit to those who smoked and those who were around them, " Schmaljohn said. Smoking had been a volatile issue for years, and though the conflict never ended, many students developed a " live and let live " philoso- phy concerning it. As many students decided for themselves to start or quit, the issue of smoking was a question only they could answer. Smoking • 35 HANCOCK II GETS DEFEATED AND REPUBLICANS TAKE OFFICE Issues boark T Stuaent Response JL By Kellv Ferauson Northwest students joined people from across Missouri on Nov. 8 to soundly defeat a proposal which would drastically cut funding to a variety of state services, including education. Amendment 7 to the Missouri Constitution, as it was formally known, proposed a cap on state and local taxation at the 1980 level, dramatically lowering state funding to services like prisons, mental institutions and universities including Northwest. By some estimates, tuition for Northwest students would have doubled had the amend- ment been approved. " I wouldn ' t have been going to school in Missouri anymore, " Christina Hammen said. " It would cost too much. It would have been like going to a private school in Iowa. " Student Senate worked with other organiza- tions to register more than 700 students to vote. " I was impressed with the enthusiasm and the turnout, " Jessica Elgin, senate president, said after the election. Elgin noted that the campaign efforts at North- west had effects beyond Nodaway County. Ac- cording to Elgin, officials in St. Joseph were attributing a 70 percent voter turnout there in part to Northwest ' s efforts. On election day, RHA reminded students and faculty to vote by decorating campus with nearly balloons with the word " Vote " on them. her issues also generated attention. A con- stitui, nal amendment to allow games of chance on the siate ' s riverboats received the approval of voters, as did many other amendments. By Kelly Ferguson " I supported the amendment, " Jill Templin said. " If people were going to gamble, they might as well have done it in Missouri so we could get the tax money. " For the fourth time, voters in the Maryville R- II School District narrowly defeated a bond issue to fund the construction of a new middle school near the Northwest campus. The proposition fell just 90 votes short of passing. Gary Bell, Superintendent of Maryville R-II, said voter turnout was positive. " It was encouraging to see that kind of turnout from the students, " Bell said. " I hoped that once they would continue to pay attention to issues like this. " Nationally, the biggest upset in 40 years was when the Republicans took control of Congress. Locally, former Governor John Ashcroft was chosen for the U.S. Senate seat, with 59 percent approval over Democrat Alan Wheat. Democrat Pat Danner defeated Tina Tucker for the area ' s U.S. House seat by 66 percent. Republican Sam Graves took the State Senate seat over Doug Hughes. Rex Bamett, also a Republican, defeated W.R. O ' Reilly in the State House race. " I didn ' t think that the Republican takeover would make that much difference because there was akeady a gridlock, " Jennie Nelson said. " Change was needed, but it wasn ' t going to happen; politics was politics. " From the defeat of Hancock II to the upset of Democratic congressional rule, the November elections made an impact on the lives of students. 36 • Student Life Kirsl-timc vottT Slaocy Jesse waits to ri-ct-ive her ballot at the Maryville Courthouse from volunteer Edith Wray.

Elections •37 STUDENTS FIND ROMANCE WHERE THEY LEAST EXPECT IT Termina Love ' Although getting to know a person was an important part of a relationship, it was often hard to get past the initial physical attraction. Com- puter dating became an alternative for many students who were disgusted with the materialis- tic aspects and physical pressures placed on dating. It allowed people to meet a personality instead of just a face. " Computer dating was safer and less stressful because relationships were based on who you were, not what you looked like, " Prem Balasubramaniam .said. " It was easier than regu- lar dating because there wasn ' t any stereotypes or racism. " Through various networks and bulletin boards like internet and Telnet, students were able to communicate with people all over the world. At most universities, including Northwest, these systems were offered free of charge. This made electronic conversations more appealing than the high cost of long distance phone bills. Many people developed friendships, but sometimes it led to more. " I met a guy from Iowa State through a net- work called MUD, " Balasubramaniam said. " It ' s weird, but I honestly don ' t think we would have been attracted to each other if we had just met on campus. " Many networks like MUD became a fantasyland because of the imaginative settings some of the computer games offered. In some systems, people didn ' t even use their real name, so they pretended to be whomever they wanted. " It was like a play, " Balasubramaniam said. " People became characters the minute they turned on the computer. " Some people went so far as taking on a new, more exotic image. For instance, a shy, self- conscious person might have pretended to be a wild rebel through the computer. Many found that it was easier to open up and be themselves through the computer. " I was a shy, withdrawn person and the com- puter was a safe way to talk to other people, " Jessica Pratka said. " Now I ' m promised to a guy from Minnesota who I met through the Iowa Student Computer Association. " Computer relationships did leave room for disappointment. A person had to trust what the other person wrote was the truth. This was not always the case. " Through the computer, I only saw the best in everyone, " Cynthia Cole said. " A guy or girl may have sounded perfect, so I kind of devel- oped false expectations of them. " Developing a computer relationship wasn ' t quite the same as developing a normal relation- ship. A different kind of attraction was brought out by the computer. " My friends and family couldn ' t believe I had actually fallen in love with a guy I ' d never met, " Pratka said. Computers have opened doors for all aspects of life, including relationships. They haven ' t made falling in love any easier.. .just electroni- cally accessible.

People came from neighboring towns to hear the swing- ing sounds of the Glenn Miller Orchestra ' s old wartime songs from the Big Band era. Students such as Jill Newland found the concert a chance to experience what her parents listened to during their generation. " I liked the Big Band era and all it stood for, " Newland said. " My parents had old records of Big Band music and that was where 1 first heard the songs. The show was very entertaining, and it made me wonder how it was back then. " A more modern military-intluenced band. Air Combat Command Heartland of America Band, performed for the campus with its versatile and professional 60-member unit. Along with some of the most dedicated musicians in the Air Force, students enjoyed the free performance. Dixieland fans, young and old, gathered for an evening of tunes from the ' 20s and ' 30s when the River City Ramblers took stage. " The show was very inspiring because the musicians were obviously having fun, " Emmy Davies said. " I wanted to jam with these guys. " Another concert filled seats on campus when the Omaha Symphony Chamber Orchestra gave a two-hour perfor- mance. The orchestra held audience attention with its dramatic changes, and the performance was anything but " typical " for Erin Campbell who was in the crowd. " It wasn ' t what I expected at all. " Campbell said. " I saw a symphony and I thought I ' d see this really boring music. but this one kept me very interested. " In a more relaxed atmosphere, the Kansas City Brass Quintet ' s five musicians gave insight to what they were about in addition to their performance. Many enjoyed the way the brass members interacted with the audience, and some felt the highlight of the show came when percussionist Tim Jepson, a member of the Kansas City Brass Quintet who was not playing, tempo- rarily joined the band on stage. " It added color and rhythm as well as another dimen- sion, " Jepson said. " It really helped the Christmas music. We were limiting the use of percussion. " Another group entertained on campus, but " Where ' s the Band? " members only used their voices to keep the crowd clapping. The acappella quartet encouraged the crowd to sing along when they performed classics from artists such as Billy Joel and Bonnie Raitt. " I liked the variety they showed, their enthusiasm and how they let the audience participate, " Natalie Schwartz said. " They were fun. " Feet were tapping to the sounds of jazz as legendary trumpet player Wynton Marsalis performed. The band ' s performance began with the song " But Not For Me " and continued to increase the pace with swing and be-bop jazz songs. Although many of the artists ' music they played were gone and forgotten, professional bands and groups left their audiences with melodies to remember. Bands ' 41 WEEKLY SPECIALS ACCOMMODATE STUDENTS A 25 cent hamburger and a 35 cent cheesebur- ger were offered on Mondays, stacked pancakes galore, crunchy tacos and 1 2-price burgers were the special on Tuesdays and for every day of the week, seafood was a popular choice. Seven days a week, Maryvill e restaurants of- fered low prices to those on a balanced budget. Justin Washburn said he went to the 25 cent hamburger night at McDonald ' s almost every week. Washburn said the prices of the food were a main factor in picking McDonald ' s over other restaurants. It was also a big social gathering spot. " It was something that all my (Delta Chi) brothers went to, and I liked to go and talk to them, " Washburn said. " They didn ' t really come as a group, but they were in and out so I could find someone to talk to. " Dave Gruender tried the 25 cent hamburger night for the first time. He said the prices played a factor in his decision. " It saved me money on my Aladine card for one meal, " Gruender said. " Of course it was only one meal, but it saved me from taking $5 or $6 dollars off my card. " Pat Cummings, manager of McDonald ' s, said the specials helped make Monday and Tuesday the most profitable nights of the week. " The hamburger-cheeseburger night was something of a tradition in Maryville, " Cummings said. " I got the idea from the restau- rant in Boulder, Colo., and decided to try it to see By Keith Rydberg if we would sell enough hamburgers and cheese- burgers to make a profit. " The idea worked so well that other restaurants in Maryville tried the same idea. Taco John ' s had a " Taco Tuesday " every week which offered two hard shell tacos for 89 cents. Assistant manager Cindy Mueller said as a college student, she could tell the restaurant had major support from students at Northwest on Tuesdays. " The lunch hours were really big and we also had college people coming in off and on during the day, " Mueller said. Sonic Drive-In offered specials that were fran- chise-wide. One of the more popular specials was 1 2-price hamburgers on Tuesday nights. Manager Allen Dodge said on average, 150 to 200 hamburgers were sold on those nights. Other restaurants that did not or could not have special nights found other ways to compete. Long John Silver ' s tried a different approach. Bill Scott, manager of the restaurant, said they tried to offer food at a lower price every day. " We ran the constant $1.99 deals which was what most students went for, " Scott said. " There were four or five varieties on that. " Scott said because of what was offered, this was the best deal Long John Silver ' s could offer. " There was no way we could compete with their price ranges (because oO the profit margin and since seafood was more expensive. " Scott said. Those who wanted their food cheap found area restaurant specials left them with fatter wallets. 42 • Student Life Jennifer Taylor serves Amy Slater at Sonic Drive- in.

As a strong opponent of the ERA and the feminist movement, she commented several times on how happy she was when the ERA failed. According to Schaltly, the reason it failed was " the women of America did not want the amendment to be passed. " In ending her commentary, Schlafly warned women to look for options when planning their futures because they could always have a career but there came a point in a women ' s life when they could no longer start a family. After each woman ' s opening remarks, the other woman had three minutes of rebuttal. Following the rebuttal, questions from the audience were asked. One question proposed to both women, was if the word ' obey ' was appropriate in the marriage vows. Schlafly replied, in marriage the husband was the head of the not be in marriage vows, " marriages were partnerships. " Jacqueline Schimmel agreed with Weddington. She believed that the word ' obey ' should not be in the marriage vows. " I definitely disagreed with Schlafly, " Schimmel said, " In modern times women have their own jobs and way of life. Women should not be the property item of their husbands; it should have been a mutual thing. " The issue of abortion was a topic on which the women had very strong feelings. Schlafly believed abortion, in any form, was wrong. " We knew that life began at the time of conception, and the setting up of three trimesters was fictitious, " Schlafly said. She did not believe a woman had the right to kill her unborn baby and commented " the government did have the power to exercise rights over our bodies. " Weddington believed the choice of abortion was a woman ' s decision. " I believed that each person should have had the right to choose what was right for them, " Weddington said. The debate concluded with summarizing remarks and advice to the audience from both women. Dressed in red they came to debate. With opposing viewpoints, they spoke of " Women ' s Roles in the ' 90s.

Franken Hall held only upperclassmen and changed their policy to allow 24-hour visitation seven days a week. Escort hours remained the same, and a co-habitation policy, which con- sisted of not allowing a visitor to spend more than three nights in a row, was enacted. Some of the other changes made by the Resi- dence Hail Association included turning Phillips Hall into a co-ed residence and creating a to- bacco-free atmosphere. South Complex, which consisted of mainly underclassmen, also gained the 24-hour visitation, but their escort hours started two hours earlier. The hours sometimes created problems for residents who had to remember to escort their visitors at the earlier hour in the evening. " At times, it was kind of an inconvenience, " Residential Life Coordinator Wayne Viner said. " I had to keep track of times. Even for myself, when I had to go over in the evenings to visit, I needed to make sure I had an escort. " Upperclassmen in Franken Hall gave positive feedback about the changes. " When they had a lot of freshmen, they spent so much time trying to get them oriented to campus, " Jessica Whaley said. " Here everybody already knew (campus), so they could do more fun things and they didn ' t have to worry if everybody knew where things were. " Freshmen and upperclassmen dealt with ad- justing to college in different ways. " I didn ' t know if it was just a stereotype, but people thought freshmen were rowdier resi- dents, " Viner said. " During the first year of college, they were having a good time and they may not have been as focused in their classes. " The addition of women ' s floors to Phillips Hall caused mixed reactions among the male residents. For some, it did not make much of a difference, but for others, the change was more noticeable. " It was okay, " Devin Stickel said. " But they were taking over the dorm and running the hall council. " Some of Phillips Hall ' s male residents wanted a 24-hour visitation policy like Franken and South Complex. " Especially with girls upstairs, they should have been able to come down and hang out all night if they wanted to, " Chris Arnold said. There was some concern over the campus policy that required the doors to be locked ear- lier. " The doors locked at 10 p.m. instead of 1 1 p.m., and that was hard because I couldn ' t get any food, " Derrick Van Buren said. " They stopped taking orders and I had to pick it up. It was a pain. " Despite minor problems with co-ed living, students gave their approval of the residence hall changes and made the most of campus living. Residence Halls • 47 Renowned English actress brings hope and havoc to production while giving an understudy a chance. By Cynthia Hansen Shakespearean Drama w hen the guest actress playing Lady Macbeth was unable to perform in the play, " Macbeth " still found its way to the stage. Through a grant from the Culture of Quality, a former member of the Royal Shakespeare Co., Barbara Kinghorn, was invited to perform the role of Lady Macbeth in Northwest ' s production of the Shakespearean drama. After the actress allegedly attacked a couple on the track at Rickenbrode Stadium, she was restrained and taken to the Behavioral Medicine Unit at St. learning of their future from three witches. Francis Hospital in Maryville. Due to the circumstances, Kinghorn was unable to participate in any of the perfor- mances. " During the rehearsal period, I learned a lot from her (Kinghorn), " Shad Ramsey, who played Macbeth, said. " She was very professional and I learned a lot of lessons about acting. " But waiting in the wings for just such an opportunity was Carol Patton, Kinghorn ' s understudy. Patton had re- searched the play for four months and practiced with the cast for five weeks. Although the practice was intended for the matinee performance, Patton ended up performing all the shows. " The experience itself was difficult and 1 was nervous, yet very excited, " Patton said. " 1 was thankful to have been working toward the matinee performance because I was prepared to do the work. " Despite the problems with Kinghorn, Ramsey still found Patton ' s performance worthy of praise. " I don ' t think that what happened affected the play that much at all, mainly because Carol had the role down perfectly, " Ramsey said. The play was set in Scotland around the year 1 ,050 A.D. The opening scene featured Macbeth and a companion The play unfolded with Macbeth and his wife killing the King of Scotland, played by Northwest instructor James Eiswert. Macbeth was enraged because, unlike what the witches had predicted, the King had named his eldest son to be the next on the throne instead of Macbeth. As the play progressed. Lady Macbeth became more consumed with guilt of her part in the killing of the king. Eventually, this drove her to madness and then to commit suicide. Macbeth also became more and more troubled by what he and his wife had done. This left him nonexpectant of arising foreign conflicts. He only became aware of what was going on when he was caught off guard by Macduff of London and his men. After Macbeth was slain in a sword fight, Macduff arose as the new king of Scotland. The audience responded positively to the cast ' s perfor- mance. " They did an excellent job, " Aimee Wilke said. " I had never read the play or anything before but I thought the acting was so good that it helped me to understand the story. " Although the difficulties with production affected the, those in the audience experienced Shakespeare ' s " Macbeth " without losing the full perspective of the story. 48 • Student Life Shad Rumsiy and guest actnss.

By Jeni Klamm Curtain Call A s the bright Hghts went down and the curtain went up, the freshmen and transfer students took center stage in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. These students came together to demonstrate their theatrical and musical talents in Northwest ' s annual event: the Freshmen-Transfer Showcase. The performances were put to gether to help the students become better acquainted with the theatre department and other students within the department. " It was an opportunity for us to get involved because we the rape by physically torturing him. were all so new to the department, " Katrina Rader said. Rader was one of the many faces who performed in the skits for the show. " Anyone could have tried out for the showcase, but only a selected few actually performed, " Rader said. " Everyone who performed was new to the department. Upperclassmen participated, but behind the scenes. " The showcase contained 12 different skits directed by Charles Schultz, associate professor of theatre. Each of the show ' s distinct selections was meant to conjure up various images in the minds of the audience members. " Dr. Schultz picked each skit to either be funny for the audience or to make each person mad or emotional, " Rader said. The performance included such classic skits as: " Little Girl and the Wolf, " " Death of a Maiden " and " Who ' s on First. " " The Little Girl and the Wolt ' skit was a parody of the childhood story " Little Red Riding Hood. " The story was about a child who encountered a wolf who appeared to be a grandmother. " Death of a Maiden, " however, was directed toward the more serious subjects of rape and revenge. The skit was about a woman who was raped by a Nazi and later avenged Abbott and Costello ' s classic, " Who ' s on First, " was about a baseball team composed of players named Who, What and I Don ' t Know. The short skit required quick timing and fast response. The people behind the scenes also helped to put together the showcase. " I worked on the set and I was also an usher, " Kristine Hain said. " We had people who worked on the sets, lighting, costumes, properties and publicity crews. " Though not everyone got to perform on stage, the production would not have happened without the help of the crews. " Through the process of working on the set, I learned a lot about the technical aspects of productions, " Hain said. For theatre majors, particpating in the showcase was optional for their theatre practicum. " Although it was strongly encouraged, it was still a lot of fun for everyone involved, " Rader said. The performance was featured on Friday and Saturday nights and a matinee performance on Sunday. The showcase was an opportunity for students and parents to see the hard work and effort involved with being a theatre major. It was also a way for the new students to express themselves.

Kennedy ' s assassination was felt around the world. His death led to " Kennedy ' s Children, " a play detailing its effects on the hopes and dreams of the citizens of the United States. The play centered on five people at an underground bar on Valentine ' s Day in 1974. The group explored their activities in the 1960s following Kennedy ' s assassination. Their reactions to the proceeding years were varied. Wanda, played by Kristine Hain, tried to follow Kennedy ' s idealism while Sparger, played by Paul Nevins, turned cold and scornful while watching New York ' s underground theater movement go commercial. Jennifer Pittrich watched the show, but did not feel she got anything out of it. " I knew that the play was about the years right after the Vietnam War, but I did not feel the way the characters presented the material was very entertaining, " Pittrich said. Pittrich found that time period interesting, but she felt the different stories and lack of interaction between the characters hurt the play. " Each of the characters had a story about something that was going on in that era, " Pittrich said. " Mostly it was about President Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe and how the loss of those two people affected their lives. It was interest- ing to take a look at that time period, but I thought there would be more to it. " Jen Otto played a character who wondered why she was a producer ' s plaything rather than the next Marilyn Mon- roe. Otto believed that the audience might have had a hard time understanding the play. " It was not your normal play, " Otto said. " Each character felt strongly about different aspects of that era. Whether it was the assassination or the sudden death of Marilyn Monroe, each told their own story. " Auditions were held for two nights Each person audi- tioned for one night and read several monologues that were featured in the play. " For the audition I read one monologue from the play, " Otto said. " There were five theatre majors involved in the play and I was the only voice major. Anyone could have tried out. " According to director John Rude, this was a difficult type of play to do. " This was the most challenging production most of these actors will ever do, " Rude said. " They had to totally immerse themselves in their roles for the two hours they were on the stage to make the show work. " Rude first directed the play 1 7 years ago. Although he did not like to repeat shows, its success prompted him to try it for the Northwest audience. " The play was actually written in 1 974, " Otto said. " The play had never been done at Northwest and he felt it was an interesting play to do, so we did it. " Although the play received a lukewarm response from members of the audience, the performance provided a challenge for student acting talent and a picture of an era gone by.

By Chera Prideaux Simple Elegance A single spotlight shined on a man wearing tights and no shirt. As he danced, he began " The River " and the State Ballet of Missouri ' s fall performance at Northwest. The performance also included scenes from two other ballets including " Coppelia " and " Celebration. " " The River " contained a Prologue, Epilogue and 1 1 sections all representing bodies of water and included solos and group dances. It was the first time the State Ballet performed the piece since the death of Alvin Alley in 1 989. Audience members had positive reactions to the perfor- mance. One audience member was amazed by the lively dancing. " The energy was unbelievable, " Jermal Fryer said. " It was awesome. I could tell they could feel the music by their facial expressions. " " The River " was simple compared with the more elabo- rate costumes and scenery of " Celebration. " In the second piece, the dancers were dressed in tuxedos and formal dresses donned with sequins and feathers. The piece showed a variety of dance styles. The second ballet was set to Gershwin music and in- cluded the popular " Embraceable You " and " Facinatin ' Rhythm. " The music was one of the highlights for some students. " I enjoyed the Duke Ellington music, " Kevin Johnson said. " Christopher Barksdale was also very good. " " Celebration " was created by acclaimed choreographer Todd Bolender, the artistic director of the State Ballet to honor the University of Missouri ' s sesquicentennial. " Coppelia " concluded the evening ' s performance and was a fairy tale ballet written by E.T.A. Hoffman, who also wrote " The Nutcracker. " The story was of a contented couple, Frantz and Swanilda, whose relationship was threatened when Frantz began flirting with a " woman. " It was later revealed that the " woman " was actually a life-size doll created by Dr. Coppelius, an eccentric toymaker. Frantz realized how senseless he had been and returned to Swanilda. The evening ' s performance began in Act III with the prepara- tion of the wedding. " Coppelia " ended with a wedding pas de deux by Swanilda and Frantz. " Coppelia " was the favorite for some students. " Everything about ( " Coppelia " ) went well together, " Erika Corrado said. " The costumes, scenery and dancers were all in sync. " The State Ballet of Missouri was based in Kansas City and presented four major performances a year. Corrado who was in Campus Activities Programmers, worked backstage and was impressed with the company. " The dancers were technically proficient, " Corrado said. " They were one of the best (companies) to come through. They all were polite and nice to work with. " Another audience member who sat in the front enjoyed being close to the performance. " It showed a wide range of emotion, " said Megan Greer, " I could hear them breathing. " The end of the evening brought the final bows from the dancers, the close of the curtains and a standing ovation from the small audience.

The group was sponsored by Northwest Encore Performances and received additional funding from the Mid-America Arts Alliance. The story was based on a tale by E.T.A. Hoffman and the music was by Peter Tchaikovsky. " The Nutcracker " which holds the title as " the world ' s According to Liz Masters, executive secretary for the most beloved ballet, " told the story of the Silberhaus Tulsa Ballet Theatre, it was easier for the company to use family who held a party on Christmas Eve. Clara, the daughter, received a nutcracker by Dr. Drosselmery, a guest. Clara and her brother Fritz fought over the nutcracker which resulted in the toy breaking. After the guests left, Clara ventured downstairs to check on her nutcracker. As the clock struck midnight she wit- nessed a magical transformation. Mice ran into the room and the toys under the Christmas tree came to life. After the toy soldiers and the nutcracker won a battle against the mice, the nutcracker turned into a prince. The prince took Clara on a journey through the Forest of Christmas and the Kingdom of Sweets, where she was the guest of honor. The performance concluded with the famous " Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. " The roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Prince were danced by Irina Ushakova and Grant Scruggs on the opening night and then by Melanie Nasser Mooney and Michael Wardlaw at the second performance. Area children danced the roles of mice, rabbits, toy soldiers and angels. For sisters Stacy and Steffany Cummings, performing with professional dancers was " really cool. " " I thought it was real awesome, " 10-year-old Stacy said. " The dancers were very friendly and real beautiful. " area children than to hire children to travel with the troupe. " It gave them a chance to be on stage with professional dancers and that was something they may never get the opportunity to do again, " Masters said. For audience members, " The Nutcracker " brought back many childhood memories. " The women in white dresses reminded me of my childhood when I would dance around the room in white fancy dresses, " Amy Deterding said. The Tulsa Ballet performed two shows and had technical difficulties with audio equipment on the opening night which caused some discontent among audience members. " I was personally disappointed because there wasn ' t a live orchestra, " Tim De Boom said. " A lot less was made of the battle scene between the mice king and the nutcracker than in other versions I had seen, so I missed that. " Other audience members found the ballet very enjoy- able. " It was great, " Lisa Gregory said. " I was suprised by how athletic the dancers were and I thought the Sugar Plum Fairy was the neatest part. " Children of all ages were dazzled by the performance and experienced the nostalgia of a Christmas classic. iU ' ' s , 56 • Entertainment Llara is lifted hy Ihc I ' linci: as the ballet draws to a close.

" The Nutcracker " • 57 Toys come to life in an animated student production of " The Toys Take Over Christmas. Heartwarming Holiday c hildren lining the front row sat in rapt attention as the toymaker put the finishing touches on the rag doll. They watched as he sprinkled magic dust on the doll and the children squealed as she came to life. A group of Northwest students performed and entertained in the annual children ' s Christmas play " The Toys Take Over Christmas. " Before the show, the audience and cast members warmed up by singing the Christmas carol " The Twelve Days of Christmas. " The cast divided the audience into sections and each group sang a separate part. Then the action began as the cruel, heartless toymaker, played by Paige Vandenburg, would not give away his magic toys, and his newest creation. Sunny the rag doll, started a toy rebellion. The toys took over the shop and when the dust had finally settled, the toymaker had discovered the meaning of Christmas by gaining a heart and spreading the cheer of the season. " I liked it when the clown and the toymaker were trying to get out of the toy store, " Elizabeth Curtis said. " They were struggling with the other toys. They really seemed to get into their characters. " Directed by Shawn Wake, the group presented the show at the Charles Johnson Theater for two nights. The students had limited preparation time. " We had 13 practices, so I guess it was about two and a half weeks that we prepared, " Becky Pinick, who played Sunny, said. Because of these limited practices, lines were sometimes forgotten and the students had to make up their own, so the audiences responded differently. " It was different for every show, " Pinick said. " Because of the front row, this one worked great. " The children who sat on the front row participated in the play even though the cast members had not planned for them to. " We had one kid who, when asked where to put a heart, said, ' Throw it away! Throw it away! ' " Pinick said. Children were not the only ones who took in the Christ- mas play; students got into the action and many found that they enjoyed the play as well. " It was really cute, " Jen Combs said. " All the little kids were so cute. My favorite character was the clown because he did flips and he had a cool voice, too. " The students were impressed with the actors ' abilities as well. " I thought the actors were great, " Traci Brady said. " The kids got really involved and even us older kids got in- volved. " At the end of the performance, the children were encour- aged to come backstage and visit Santa. Chet Hardin played this role and he thought that the children really enjoyed the added bonus of being able to chat with Santa. " They (the children) were the best part of the show, " Hardin said. " Most of them really believed I was Santa, and they were awe — struck. " The children hurried backstage for a treat promised from Santa and adults watched as another annual Christmas play came to an end. Children and adults alike joined in the Christmas cheer and celebrated the season with a tradi- tional performance.

Children ' s Christmas Play • 59 DECORATIONS AND LIGHTS DISPLAY CHRISTMAS CHEER J By Angela T, As the traditional carol went " It ' s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go, " so did Maryville as the days became closer to the holiday season. Maryville took on a hometown Christmas look with decorations on street lights, illumi- nated scenery parks and buildings. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, the spirit of Christmas came to light as Santa Claus flipped the switch lighting the Nodaway County Court- house for the first time. The community-wide effort to light the structure earned the recognition of the Maryville Citizens for Community Ac- tions Pride Committee for the month of Decem- ber as well as awe from spectators. After the lighting of the courthouse, crowds gathered at Franklin Park to watch the annual lighting of the Winter Wonderland. " The courthouse was really beautiful because it looked like it was professionally done, " Shannon Blackney said. " The lights got me in the spirit of Christmas and made me excited to go look at other Christmas lights around Maryville. " Students also got in the holiday spirit as they decorated their apartments and residence halls with Christmas trees, lights and decorations. Tom Huffington and his roommates decided to put a country twist on their decorations. " I lived with two guys and we were all big George Strait fans. " Huffington said. " We got the idea to decorate our wall because George Strait had a new Christmas CD out ' Merry Christmas Strait to You ' and we thought it would Tackett be fun to put it on our wall. " Huffington and his roommates hung red lights on their wall which spelled out the saying " Merry Christmas Strait to You. " With their left over lights, they made a lasso and put a GS inside of it. " Everybody so far liked it, " Huffington said. " Especially if they liked country music. " In the Residence Halls, some students decorated their doors with wrapping paper and lights and put lights around their windows. Kerri Grotrian and Ranae Ottemann decorated their door with a three-dimensional Christmas tree complete with working lights and presents underneath. " We just wanted our room to look festive, " Ottemann said. Resident Assistant Jennifer Krai enjoyed having Christmas activities with her floor to help alleviate the stress of the hectic season. " The Christmas activities we did helped lighten the time of year, " Krai said. " For many students, this was their first time away from home and hopefully the things we did would not make them so homesick. " On the study day before finals, Hudson Hall executive board and programming committee sponsored a holiday party. The activities in- cluded everything from stress relievers to deco- rating Christmas cookies. " We got frosting and decorated the cookies just for the fun of it, " Robin Casey said. Though students were not home for the major- ity of the season, it did not dampen their spirits. The Nodaway County Courthouse iUuminates the night time sky near downtown Main Street.

Christmas in the ' Ville • 61 Lords and ladies toast the audi- ence in celebration of the " Yule- tide Feaste. " By Amy Duggan Renaissance Madraliers A red tapestry hung over the door to the J.W. Union Ballroom as guests entered a Renaissance era filled with Madrigal singing, Christmas carols, and a traditional dinner from the 16th century. Guests gathered around a round table as they drank Wassail, a hot apple cider, and mingled with couples dressed in elaborate English clothing. After a brief session of conversing, the guests waited while their table was called. They were then escorted into the ballroom by a lord of the court where they were seated at long banquet tables. The King. Queen and other Renaissance characters were played by students from the theater department. One character that provided a variety of the laughs for the night was Jester, played by Doug Martin. For Martin, making people laugh was nothing new. " I got different people each night so you could do different things each time, " Martin said. Choirmaster Richard Weymuth had been working with the Fcaste for 15 years and saw many similarities from years past. " I thought the involvement of the students and how much pride they had was the same, " Wcymulh said. " They had an enormous amount of pride in what they did and that was obvious. " For Northwest Celebration, a University choir, the per- formance required a lot of extra work. Jeramie Kramer, who was on the construction commit- tee, helped with the set for the program. " We did a lot of renovating old ideas, " Kramer said. The ideas consisted of making sturdier tables for the Madraliers, building the fire place and walls quicker and bringing the fog up through the ceiling and down one of the trees. Brenda Ashley, an alto Madralier, believed the ballroom underwent a major change from its normal atmosphere. " The transformation of the ballroom put me in the mood for Christmas, " Ashley said. Suzanne Garrett saw Celebrations ' performance differ- ent than many musical shows. " I thought it was outstanding, " Garrett said. " It was something different that I had never seen before. " As the evening continued, members of Celebration gath- ered around their tables and sang Christmas carols. For Martin, the one-on-one joking with the guests added to the atmosphere. His character was dressed in a black and white costume and with his outfit, he was able to leave acertain impression on his guests. " Usually one night I gave someone a black and white kiss, " Martin said. " It was the mark of the Jester. " Although comedy played an important role in the festiv- ity, Garrett said the ending was her favorite part. " The ending was when they turned off the lights and everyone was singing in candlelight, " Garrett said. " It was really touching, nice way to end it. " Amidst the atmosphere of the King and Queen ' s celebra- tion, the comedy and the joyous sounds of Christmas from the Celebration carolers, the show truly brought the es- sence of the century and Christmas season to life. 62 • Entertainment The Northwest Mudralicrs sing under the direct ion of Riehard Weymuth.

By Brady Bilyeu Yo ' Mama Comedy G ood-natured humor and constant waves of laughter set the tone of the evening when comedian George Wallace performed his comic routine at the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. Wallace had appeared everywhere from college cam- puses to the " Tonight Show " on NBC. " The places that I performed were all the same: stage, microphone, good people, laughs, " Wallace said. " Playing here was just as good as playing at San Francisco. " Wallace usually played in large cities, but he enjoyed performing in a small town like Maryville. " I really liked Maryville, " Wallace said. " I got to see it all — the bars, the Hy-Vee, the little fast food restaurant row; and I got to meet the mayor of Maryville and I asked him why the Christmas lights were still up on City Hall. " Both onstage and off, Wallace shared his feelings about his life as a stand up comedian and offered some serious advice about life itself. " I loved doing stand up comedy, " Wallace said. " That was why I did about 300 shows every year. I made a lot of people laugh and that was why I felt that I had the greatest job in the world. " Wallace used some of the jokes from his appearance on the " Arsenio Hall Show. " Some of these trademark jokes included bits such as, " Yo ' mama was so old that when Moses parted the Red Sea, she was on the other side. " To end his show, he encouraged audience participation by asking members to make up jokes of their own. After the show, Wallace said that making people laugh was a business that he had always taken seriously. He believed the main reason he performed comedy was because he loved his job. According to Wallace, enjoying life was crucial. " The most important thing that I could tell you was, ' enjoy life, ' " Wallace said. " Make sure the kind of job that you have was the kind of job that you enjoy going to every day. I knew too many people stuck in jobs (i.e. parents) who worked nine to five, came home and they were stuck doing the same routine every day. " Wallace enjoyed doing stand-up comedy for many rea- sons; most importantly for the fans. " The best part about my job was that I got to make people laugh, " Wallace said. " We laughed together and had a really good time. I got to see people when they were at their best — when they were laughing. " The opening act for Wallace was comedy newcomer and Northwest student, Mike Ditamore. " I got a call from Campus Activities Programmers, " Ditamore said. " They asked me if I did stand up and I said ' no, but I had always kind of wanted to, ' so this was actually my first time out. " Ditamore was offered the opening act after being recommended to CAPs by a few members and other Northwest students. According to Kevin Harrington, the special events chair for CAPs, the performance took a great deal of effort. " To tell you the truth, it did take a lot of work to put a show like this together, " Harrington said. " But the show was great. George Wallace was a very funny guy. " As the show ended, laughter and cheers from MLPAC seemed to indicate that many people had a good time listening to the comedy of George Wallace. 64 • Entertainment LATE SHIFT ANTICS ENLIVEN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR The parking lot was half empty as he pulled in and turned off his lights. While most thought of snuggling up in bed, he was just beginning his shift at work. Finding employment during the daytime hours while working around a class schedule sometimes proved impossible, forcing students to work the night shift. Scott Copeland and Mike Martin of Food-4- Less hunted for weeks before deciding that working late at night was worth the hassle. " I saw people at night who came in and bought things they wouldn ' t be seen buying in the day- light, " Copeland said. " Like men who had been sent by their women for things like tampons. " They eased up the aisle nice and slow, made sure no one was looking " Copeland continued. " Then they brought the box to the counter and just showed it to us, not saying a word. Some- times we got on the microphones and did a price check just to embarrass them. " Both men found ways to balance their work schedule with their class and social lives. " I grabbed sleep anywhere I could, " Martin said, " My girlfriend didn ' t like it, though, when I ' d go over to her apartment I ' d usually be asleep the first 20 minutes of being there. " Most of their classes were scheduled in the afternoon, so with a 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. schedule they had a few hours to sleep between work and school. Because of this, an evening social life was almost out of the question. " I had been out with friends and they ' d all be By Julie Sharp going to the bars and I had to cut out at 10 p.m. to get to work, " Martin said. Some of the more interesting late night hap- penings centered around aisle 13 where liquor lined the counters. There were times when people came in after the 3 a.m. deadline to buy liquor, and when they found they could not buy any alcohol, they attempted bribery. Pallet jack races, which involved pushing pallets down the aisles, was a highlight of the night. Card games and reading were other activi- ties Martin did to pass the time. " I had read every magazine on the rack, " Martin said. While Copeland and Martin had to deal with classes, some had other responsibilites to work around. Barb Jensen worked from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Hy-Vee from Friday to Monday. It was the only shift she could work because she had family and classes to deal with. Even though Jensen worked late hours, the night shift did not seem to be a bother to her children. " It wasn ' t a real problem, though, considering I left after they went to bed and I was there when they got up. " Jensen said. " Though I hadn ' t learned to balance sleep with everything yet. " While most were getting ready to go to bed, some were just wandering into work. Days and nights were turned up-side-down for those who worked on the night shift. Matt Griggs stocks cereal onto shelves while working the night shift at Hy- Vee. Griggs scheduled his 12 hours of classes and 25-30 hours of work during the week so his weekends were free.

Night Shifts • 67 Bur Midni INSOMNIA AND NEED TO UNWIND KEEP STUDENTS GOING UNTIL DAWN By Jeni Klamm While the late night hours ticked on, many students found alternative activities to occupy their time. As people drove through the streets of Maryville, apartment lights were seen glowing into the early hours of the morning. Students were also seen coming out of the bars at 1 a.m. Whether they were studying or party- ing, they suffered from the night owl syndrome. Students such as Julie Watt listened to music during the late hours to relax. " Listening to music helped me concentrate on other things besides the homework and tests from the previous day, " Watt said. " I always told myself that I would be in bed by 10 p.m., but I would hear a good song and end up listening to the radio or CDs for hours. " Watt had always been a night owl and enjoyed staying up late to hang out until she became tired. Some students got their second wind after 9 p.m. and socialized at the bar or at friends ' houses to help relieve the stress from the day. Jami Dierking went to the bar several nights a week to be with friends. " I would study and try to be prepared for my classes the next day and then I would go to the bar to unwind, " Dierking said. " Seeing friends al- ways made me feel better after a bad day. " Many expected to study or do homework at night. Some students went to the library after dinner and did not return home until it was closed. Toby Cannon believed studying was expected at night. " It was like a ritual, " Cannon said. " Every night after 6:30 p.m., I would study because I felt like I had to. I always felt really guilty if I didn ' t study at specific times. I was always thinking I was behind. " Students who worked at night experienced a tack of sleep and it did not matter whether they were out late or not. Corey McLaughlin worked several nights in Kansas City, Mo. He preferred it to the day because it gave him something to do at night. " I worked some nights at In-a-Tub in Kansas City to help me get money for school, " McLaughlin said. " It helped occupy my time. If I wasn ' t working in the evenings, I would be wide awake doing nothing. " He was one of many students who liked being a night owl. Many were not so lucky. Students such as Michelle Leach were plagued with nocturnal restlessness and suffered from insomnia. " I had insomnia for the past two years, " Leach said. " It usually happened when I was worried about something or had a bad day. All of the stress from the day came down on me when I went to bed. I was constantly worrying about what I needed to do the next day or if I had done well on a test that I had just taken. Everything was going through my head. " Normally she was not a night owl, but she became accustomed to being awake for long hours in the middle of the night. Whether voluntary or not, night owls roamed the evening hours and tried to find activities to entertain themselves while the rest of the town slept.

Night Owls • 69 Endless entertainment and bottomless cups of coffee set the mood for coffee- houses. By Julie Sharp Instant Karma T he Union Ballroom went through a bi-monthly transformation from a sprawling room to a cozy club with tables and couches surrounding a small stage. Students drank bottomless cups of coffee and ate slices of gourmet cheesecake while being entertained. The coffeehouse idea came when Michael Harmon, cof- feehouse chairman for Campus Activity Programmers, came to Northwest from California last year. He found plenty of country music, but missed the music he was familiar with from home. With a group of five students to assist him, Harmon approached C APs with the coffeehouse idea. Despite skep- ticism that the idea would never work, Harmon and his committee went to area coffeehouses for ideas then came back and started putting Cafe Karma together. Much to Harmon ' s delight, many of the skeptics later apologized for their doubt. " Many of the acts that we booked warranted a more intimate atmosphere than the Spanish Den or the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center could provide, " Harmon said. " It was difficult to find the proper place to hold Caf6 Karma, but when the lights went down in the Ballroom, the way we had things set up fairly transformed the place. " The coffeehouse got a few lest runs last year that were hardly publicized. The first Caf6 Karma took place during Advantage ' 94 and centered around guitarist Alan Bennett. Harmon said he hoped Ca{6 Karma was a place where students could enjoy themselves. " It was a possible alternative for those students who didn ' t like the bar scene in town, " Harmon said. " This was an idea whose time had come. " Harmon said the line up of performers more than fulfilled his hopes for entertaining culture. The first feature performer for the Caf6 Karma series came from the United Kingdom. Irish singing poet, Roger Gillan, took the stage at Cafe Karma Sept. 13 to share his folk rock sound and acoustic guitar playing with over 100 students. Memories from childhood mixed with humorous tales of apartment hunting in New York City were the basis for the lyrics. The story time culminated with what he called his most creative work, his eight-week-old son, Daniel. This was Daniel ' s first spotlight and his mother, Mignon, looked on proudly from the rear of the audience. One of Gillan ' s favorite things about America after leaving Sligo, Ireland, was that he could get into a car and drive for a very long way without seeing an ocean. Gillan said it was difficult to do that while living on an island country. A big thrill for Gillan occurred in 1991 when Rolling Stone magazine named him one of music ' s hottest new up and comers. This honor was presented to him even without a record release or an upcoming tour, a situation almost unheard of until then. Gillan received such a good response he returned in the spring semester for an encore performance and shared some of his new pieces. A new tradition was bom when Cafe Karma went under- ground Sept. 19 with their first night of student perfor- mances. Several guitarists, poets and singers gathered in the candlelight atmosphere of the Union Ballroom to perform monthly.

While singing his own music from his cassette, " Sons and Daughters, " between acts, he introduced performers to an audience of 50 to 70. Becky Pinick, CAPs hospitality chair, said the group wanted not only to bring professional entertainers to campus with the program, but also give students a chance to showcase their talents. ■ ' We wanted to get local talent involved — to give people a chance to show their stuff, " Pinick said. " It was fun to watch your friend up there. " However, Pinick was not only watching the other performers. She, along with Jennifer Combs, Austin Howell and Jamie Welch, sang " Blowing in the Wind " to open the evening. " We had always sung, " Combs said. " Caf6 Karma let local talent shine. This was a good performing experience. " Music was not the only entertainment. Student poets Luke Stokes and Mac Tonnies recited original works for the crowd. Stokes ' s style was very autobiographical. He recited his final piece, " Button Dude, " in a stereotypical Califomia-stoner-surfer accent that, like Tonnies ' " Elvis, " brought on the laughs and provided a segue into the next performance: Olivia ' s Neutron Bomb. The local group made an appearance to perform several songs that were influenced by jazz and blues, and Olivia Howell rounded out the finale with several solo guitar songs. Originally from Nashville, Tenn., the musical duo " Say-So, " made up of married couple Kim and Jim Thomas, brought their mix of music and poetry to the Cafe Oct. 3. The Thomas ' described their music as " artsy pop for people who weren ' t mad about much. " " So much of the alternative music nowadays was all so angry, " Kim Thomas said. " Someone was always mad about something ... except us. " Though the music poetry mixtures were accepted overall, there were some who did not find the band as entertaining as the others in the audience. " As Kim the caterwauling lead singer said, ' It was so painfully quiet, ' " Robert Schneider said. " Obviously this was only because the music was so painfully bad. Ignoring the obviously sacrilegious rendition of ' Puff the Magic Dragon, ' I supposed we could have looked at this as a flashback to the ' 60s. " In the final professional performance of the fall semester, students gathered to see guitarist vocalist Billy McLaughlin take the stage, plucking and striking his instrument with his long hair and faded jeans . " It was one of the oddest playing styles I had ever seen, but it worked well, " Charles Christopher said. McLaughlin entertained the audience with his unique style as well as the stories that went behind each song. The first song on the program set the pace for the rest of the evening. " Hurricane Bob " was inspired by, " the weirdest gig I ever had, " McLaughlin said. McLaughlin discovered while he attended college that music was the key to keeping him in the state of mind to study and succeed, especially reggae music. Bob Marley ' s music inspired him to graduate and move on into life, and he repaid the spirit of Marley by doing a tribute on one of his albums. He performed his own rendition of Marley ' s " No Woman, No Cry " at the coffeehouse. Because of the great response, the coffeehouses welcomed another showcase of student talent when the underground returned in the follow- ing spring. Kristen Schmaljohn enjoyed watching her friends participate in the underground. " I liked the fact that people I least expected to get up on stage gave performances, and they were very entertaining, " Schmaljohn said. When each musician or poet had thanked the audiences after the show, the lights went on in the Ballroom, and students lingered to finish their coffee and talk with the performers. The coffeehouse closed for the night and left the students with thoughts of another night of endless entertain- ment, rich cheesecake and steaming Java.

Wand performed three shows for Northwest students. Photo by Jon Britton. hey saw things disappear before their eyes, their bodies often did strange but unique things, and in each performance, their mind was what actually gave them the illusions. For the past ten years, Kevin Spencer had twisted, folded and made sections of his wife, Cindy, disappear. It was all in a day ' s work for Spencer and Cindy who made up the Spencer ' s Magic and Illusion show. Kevin was pleased with the audience not only in numbers but also in the way they responded to each act. He knew that the performance would go well from the start. " They laughed at every stupid joke and that was great, " Kevin said. One act, origami, made one believe that Kevin had folded Cindy into a two foot cube and then poked swords into the cube. After putting the swords into the cube Kevin unfolded the box to reveal Cindy in one piece and totally unharmed. Another audience favorite was the mind reading he performed on stage. After finding three participants, Kevin then asked one to think of their favorite male singer, another to think of a place they would like to go and the last person was to pick a playing card from a full deck. Kevin then wrote what he believed the three people were thinking on a chalkboard. One-by-one, he asked the three people what they were thinking or holding and then placed their answers below his covered predictions. Soon after, Kevin showed the audience a perfect row of predictions. One act stood out and captivated the audience, " the milk can " made famous by the great Harry Houdini. The stunt involved a steel milk can filled with water in which a chained Kevin had three minutes to escape from. " The milk can was a nice way to sum up the show, " Kevin said. " I couldn ' t think of anybody whose name was more synonymous with magic then Harry Houdini. It gave us a chance to set some historical facts straight and it was a great way to end the show. Plus, people liked that death thing. " Many audience members found the last act scary but enjoyable when a soaked and winded Kevin emerged from the milk can. " I tried holding my breath, and I could hold it half as long as he did, " Jeremy Browning said. Another act that left many to wonder if what they were seeing was real or illusion was Craig Karges. He gave students another chance to look at the powers of the mind when he entertained with his illusions. " Part of what I did was illusion, part of it was psychologically based, and part of it was intuitive, " Karges said. " It was all of those three things that were mixed together to create the show. " Diane Kwong-Burvee participated in an illusion where audi- ence members made up a fictitious car which fit the description exactly of one that Karges had described on paper before the show. " I think it (the illusion) was really intriguing as far as I was concerned, " Kwong-Burvee said. " It was very captivating. " While some magicians led their audience to believe that certain illusions were happening before their eyes. Dr. Jim Wand proved students, if hypnotized, were doing nothing out of the ordinary. Incorporating humor and audience participation. Wand used his charisma to hypnotize audience members and bring them on stage. With approximately 20 students on stage. Wand had some of the students believing they were having a hormonal change. For instance, Jason Whiting thought he was a pregnant woman. " I went through the stages of the months, and then I gave birth, " Whiting said. " I had a giri. I named her Ashley and she was 8 pounds. " Though they were hypnotized, the students faced their friends after the show, whether they had embarrassed themselves or not. Although many skeptics entered Mary Linn Performing Arts Center for each magician ' s performance, many audience mem- bers left believing that the power of the mind could do strange and wonderful things. Magicians • 75 CLOTHING CHOICES MAKE STYLES Moo Beep! As the alarm went off and students stumbled out of bed to the closet, they realized it was time to make that all-important decision of the day: what to wear. The reasons for selecting a particular outfit was unique for each individual. For some it was comfort, for others it was a fashion statement, but for all it was a question of taste. When Eric Shuster picked his outfits for the day, he chose clothes " mostly out of comfort and functionality. " A typical outfit for him was a T- shirt, two flannels, Birkenstocks, a pair of shorts and a sock hat. " Most of the time, I wore flannels from garage sales, " Shuster said. " I liked them better used because they were already toughened that way. " While the grunge look was popular at the time because of the " upshooting of bands and the Seattle sound, " Shuster said he had been dress- ing in flannels for quite a while. " It was strange because I had had the same look for years, " Shuster said. " Then everybody started liking it. I guess it was because it was comfortable and the more people who wore the stuff, the more people realized how good it felt on. " Lonita Rowland rarely knew what she was going to wear when she looked in her closet. It usually depended on her mood. " Sometimes I wore something because I liked to get complimented, " Rowland said. " When I was tired, though, I usually wore sweats. " Rowland bought most of her clothes at Lemers. " I liked to wear a lot of clothes, " Rowland said. " It was really comfortable and it looked nice at the same time. " When Heidi Schneider looked in her closet, she searched for high fashion clothing. A fashion merchandising major, Schneider said clothes showed a lot about a person. " The clothing expressed my personality, " Schneider said. " It helped say who I was because I expressed my personality through what I wore. " Although she spent over $100 a month on clothing, it was worth it to her. " I spent and spent and spent, " Schneider said. " It was my life. For me, I couldn ' t spend too much money on clothes. " Although some dressed for comfort and fash- ion, Darrin Keller dressed in his own way be- cause it " was the way he was raised. " His closet consisted of a cowboy hat, jeans, boots, western shirts and T-shirts. " I was raised on a farm, " Keller said. " I went to a lot of rodeos and started riding bareback broncos in 1994. The way I dressed was just how they dressed there. " Keller dressed in cowboy gear and found that many people had stereotypes about him. " They thought I was into country music, " Keller said. " Usually, when they saw my hat, they just started stereotyping right off " Some students dressed for comfort and others for success, while others dressed in ways that reflected their personalities. They all created their own individual style. 76 • Student Life Characters confront their personal demons in a tale of the afterlife. By Dain Johnston Locked In Hell A room with no windows, rigid furniture and lights that did not turn off was the setting for " No Exit, " the spring production performed in the Black Box Theater. The play, by Jean-Paul Sartre, was directed by Theophil Ross and had four characters who were in one room with no windows. The lights were on all the time, and it was hot in this unconventional hell. Garcon, played by Shad Ramsey, was the first to enter the room. He was followed by Inez, played by Alison Mizerski, then Estelle, played by Alisa Templeton. They were all escorted into the room by the valet, Wesley Drahozal. The play was about three people in hell trying to under- stand why they were not being tortured. Later, they realized they were each other ' s torture, which was why they were in the same room. Estelle romanced Garcon while Inez romanced Estelle. Later, it became a power struggle between Garcon and Inez about who would take Estelle. The rest of the play was about the characters arguing and trying to get through hell without going crazy. In the end, they left with a stalemate as Garcon could not make love to Estelle with Inez watching. Inez could not take Estelle because Estelle did not want to be taken. The play was performed in the Black Box Theater and seated about 35 to 40 people, which was the reason for the seven performances. Ross believed the size of the studio had an impact on the audience. Cast members also thought the intimate environment contributed greatly to the overall effectiveness of the performance. Ramsey believed the Black Box was helpful in attaining the effect they wanted. " Granted, the original production of this play was done on a mainstage, but for our purposes, the Black Box and the enclosed space really helped build the effect of ' No Exit, ' " Ramsey said. " The audience didn ' t have an exit either. " Audience members also thought being closer to the actors was a plus. " I felt like I was with them, that I was in their room, " Audra Miller said. " I was enclosed. That was the meaning for us to have. " Marisa Barbosa liked the way the actors portrayed their roles, and she thought they were very realistic when in character. She also found the valet to be her favorite character. " His character was serious, but a little funny, too, because he always had a serious expression on his face, " Barbosa said. The actors were very pleased with the way the show came off, as were some of the members of the crew. Costume designer Connie Juranek thought the show was presented well. ' The actors worked very hard, they were very good actors to work with and they did a wonderful job, " Juranek said. The play was entered in the American College Theater Festival, and the cast had a chance to be chosen to perform in Washington, D.C. Audience members entered the Black Box for a night of entertainment and left pondering the definition of hell and the afterlife. In an unconven- tional version of hell.

No Exit • 79 Li STUDENTS DEAL WITH PARKING SITUATION Pro Lack of parking spaces on campus forced many students to take extra time to look for another spot or walk several blocks to get to campus. Those who lived off campus sometimes had to park along the streets or wait for a space because there was no room on the campus lots. " There was about five cars waiting at either end of parking lots, waiting like vultures, for a place to park, " Brian Fish said. " It was ridiculous. " Some places, like the Delta Sigma Phi parking lot, were used by other students because it was close to campus. " At the beginning of the year, if I left, I came back and my spot would have been taken, " Steve Lovell said. " Later on, it got better. And as long as they didn ' t park too close to the house, I didn ' t mind. " Of the 1 ,408 parking permits that were sold to commuters, only 654 parking spaces were allotted to them. According to Warren Gose, vice president of finance, money that had been taken from the fines and the permits only covered minimal repairs on the lots. Suggestions were offered by some students, and they thought the problem was not just amount of parking places but location. " I thought they could have made the lots bigger, but I didn ' t know where they would build, " Susie McAllister said. " They should ited ace pses lems By Susan Porterfield have made the parking lots closer. " What time students parked also affected the amount of spaces that were available. " I hadn ' t really had trouble parking, but I had a class early enough that people weren ' t on campus yet, " Jill Wright said. Later in the mornings, student parking lots filled up and cars were sometimes backed up. " After nine in the morning, there was not a place to park until after four in the evening, " Fish said. The expense of parking in a lot that was not designated for commuters could add up. Tickets issued by Campus Safety were $20 for each parking violation. " I was parked in the North South Complex p arking lot because I couldn ' t find a place anywhere, " Jessica James said. " So, in order to make it to class on time, I took the ticket. " Some students did not buy the permits and decided to park off campus or walk to their classes. " They were too expensive, " Brian Sparks said. " I didn ' t feel I could spend that much on a permit. I walked to classes during the summer months and parked on the street near the Fine Arts building when it got colder. " Whether students were forced to walk or to find other alternatives to the parking situation, fighting for parking spaces and finding tickets on cars made students ' lives more difficult as they tried to allow extra time to get to their classes.

Little did the comedians know that in just a short time, they would be performing skits that tied belly button lint. Captain Kirk and a girl named Bob together. The tw o one-hour shows featured four comedians per- forming improvisational comedy. " Comedy Sportz was competitive improvisational hu- mor, " Clancy Hathaway, owner of Kansas City ' s Comedy Sportz, said. " It looked like a sporting event. Instead of an emcee, we had a referee that had a whistle and called fouls and time outs, and the stage was covered in astroturf. " The comedians were divided into two teams and created humorous scenes with audience participation. " We started out with singing the national anthem and chose audience members as judges, " Hathaway said. Because the audiences tended to vary, the comedians had to be on the tip of their toes and be ready to change the whole angle of their routine. " It was always odd because we were doing what the audience wanted, " comedian Corey Rittmaster said. Comedy Sportz had approximately 20 to 25 clubs throughout the country. The clubs were located in the back r ooms of restaurants. " Our first show was in Madison, Wis., " Hathaway said. " It was in a Wendy ' s. The downstairs looked like a regular restaurant and we played upstairs where there was addi- tional seating. " The performers traveled yearly to states such as Colo- rado, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Illinois and Texas. Team members Audrey Crabtree, Rittmaster, Cathy Pursel and Tom Faman were only four of 25 regular players for the impromptu team of comedians that per- formed in the Ballroom. " One reason it was chosen was because it was from Kansas City, " Ash Atkins, comedy events chairperson of Campus Activity Programmers, said. " We figured people from that area would know the show. " The teams participated in games with the audience. For one performance audience member Debra Smith, remem- bered a game the group played that demonstrated the difficulty in the comedians ' spontaneous humor. " They were playing this storytelling game, " Smith said. " The girl would point to someone and they had to tell the story. At one point, this person had to tell this whole story with a French accent to make it harder. " The audience ' s laughter was important, and Rittmaster admitted strange requests were not unusual when perform- ing. " We could be doing a scene from Shakespeare then we had to be a chimp, " Rittmaster said. Unlike some shows. Comedy Sportz provided the hu- mor for free. Atkins saw the free show as an advantage for both CAPs and students. " It was the entertainment that was important, " Atkins said. " We had to charge for some events because of the costs. Having a good time was payment itself. " With belly button lint and a knack for choosing unusual topics for comedians to perform, audience members expe- rienced free, improvisational comedy. Comedy Sp ortz 83 Professionals share personal influences through gallery exhibits. By Tower Staff ■ Artistic Diversity I ndividual expressions were key factors during the art exhibits at the OHve DeLuce Gallery. Students were able to see professional artists at their best, and hear first hand what experiences each artist went through to achieve success. Arthur Donley ' s work was the opening exhibit at the gallery where art majors were encouraged to attend and view the different pieces. " It made me, the viewer, think about the decisions that had to be made, " Jackie Miller said. " It was easier to look at work and respond to it and he had the elements of art incorporated into his pieces. " Donley, a 1988 graduate of Northwest, showed the ads he had designed as a graphic designer. " He was an inspiration for all the designers at school, " Brian Meyers said. " He did an excellent job exhibiting work and giving us insight in the process of creating it and showing the natural progression from initial ideas to the final graphic design piece. " Other works that Donley had were advertisements for the Pediatric Cardiology Service and an ad for a cardiometer, a device used to measure the heart ' s motions. " We tried to combine the regular studio arts such as drawing, photography and painting with the graphic design courses so that the astetic awareness thai they developed in the traditional studies could be used to inform their design work, " Paul Falcone, assistant art professor, said. The art pieces provided an insight to what might have been ahead for future students in graphic design. " I found it inspiring that he got out of school and found five jobs waiting for him, " Pete Stanfield said. " He started at Western Auto and left. Then they called him and gave him enough incentive to come back. " Another exhibit brought to the gallery was Russian artists Rimma Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin ' s Photoglyphs. The Russian couple found using themselves as props and painting their faces with signs, symbols and pictures was effective. " These were abstract images, not simple portraits, but my face, my smile, the expression in my eyes needed to be there to bring out our ideas, " Rimma said. " I tried to emanate the ideas as we were shooting. It simply wouldn ' t have worked to hire a model, to use someone who would pose without understanding. " The photoglyphs were close up shots that were fit into the frame of a picture and their body was used like a canvas for their artwork. " They had a unusual style that I had never seen before, " Stacey Meyer said. " It was interesting to see how they mixed the two medias. " The couple began their work in 1970 and 10 years ago they immigrated to the United States from Russia. Their work was displayed at the New Orleans Museum of Art, The Jacksonville (Fla.) Museum of Art and at the Univer- sity of Colorado. Lynette Knight ' s distorted reality in all shapes and sizes was the topic for another reception at the DeLuce Gallery. " It was nice to see diversity in a person ' s artwork and her work in particular, " Sean Newton said. " I enjoyed her growth to a greater color. " Artists Rimma Gerlovina and Vakriy Ck ' rlox ' in answer students questions about their " ptuto ' phs. " ' The photoglyphs depicted the artists ' philosophy on life.

She had explored the emotions she had while experienc- ing the trials and pains of living with cancer. She also exhibited works that showed her feelings with having cured her cancer. " One of her pictures had a piece of asparagus coming through a decaying piece of fat which symbolizes her rebirth, " Sharee Lynn said. " It showed the ending of her fight with cancer and the beginning of her remission. " Other students were disappointed with the paintings and thought they should have improved with her master ' s degree but instead saw her work as a Northwest student more interesting. " Her lecture was better than the show because it put the pieces in perspective, " Steve Banks said. " Honestly, stu- dent work was better than graduate work. I was not im- pressed with her master ' s degree skills compared to what she learned here. " Although some found the paintings were not to their liking, others gave a positive response to Knight ' s work. " Her work was pretty interesting, " Mike Miller said. " I liked to see the alumni ' s work and it was a good showing. " The final exhibit showcased at Olive DeLuce, was James Tanner ' s ceramic exhibition. As a professor of art at Mankato State in Mankato, Minn., he was not only an artist in his free time, but also a teacher. Tanner began his presentation with a slide show and said the people that had influenced his work throughout his life were his wife, who was also an artist, his grandmother and his aunt. In many of Tanner ' s ceramic pieces, patterns were a noticeable colorful attraction. " My early introduction into patterns was from my grandmother ' s quilts, " Tanner said. Heather Mock, an art education major, noticed the influ- ence the quilts had on his work and believed it was just as important as the artist ' s sculptures. " The patterns in his grandmother ' s quilts were apparent if you looked at his work, " Heather Mock said. " They were just as important as the artwork itself. " The Florida native not only used important people in his life as ideas for his work, but also spirituality and odds and ends of appliances. " I used anything from old blue jeans to quite a few parts from washing machines, " Tanner said. After 30 years in the business. Tanner did not plan on retiring anytime soon. Although artistry could be expen- sive. Tanner received grants from the National Endow- ment of the Arts and by selling his pieces to individuals across the country. Individuality was an important feature in the artistic exhibits. Some were of a different heritage and others came originally from Northwest. 86 • Entertainment frank liaudino and Kalhlccn Carmody spiok with arlist Valeriy Cnilovin diiiini; the opcnini- cxhibil.

It was a special surprise for students to receive a letter while they were away from home, but it was a package that gave them a sense that some- one still cared. Care packages included snacks, money, daily necessities or any variety of things needed by students. For Cheryl Bell, whose family sent them to her on a regular basis, care packages were familiar. " They would just ask me if I was running out of my snacks or anything, then they usually would send me one, " Bell said. For some who lived out of state, packages were essential when they needed things from home. " It was the only way I had to get things from home, " Kevin Johnson said. Because some loved ones did not have time to send packages, care packages could have been purchased from ARAMARK, the University ' s food service, by parents during the spring or fall finals week. During the fall finals, 276 care packages were delivered. The packages were sent in Coke coolers and the following spring, imprinted tote bags held the gifts. " We wrote up a letter and mailed it to the parents of students living in the residence halls, " Barry Beacom, cash operations manager, said. In 1993, Residence Hall Association joined ARAMARK in preparing and sending the pack- ages. ARAMARK was in charge of ordering, filling and promoting the packages. RHA helped with the designing and packaging of the gifts. In By Amy Duggan return, RHA received $2 for delivering each package. The " special deliveries " were not only desig- nated for when one ran out of things, but also as a simple gesture of encouragement. Many of these were received during Freshmen Orienta- tion Week. " I got one when I moved in and one during the first set of finals week, " Christy Pallas said. Millikan Hall also delivered packages. The hall ' s " gifts, " which ranged from $15 to $25, not only gave students a sense of contentment, but was also used as a fundraiser. Each package was either delivered personally or found at the front desk of the hall. " Some had cookies, hot chocolate and nuts, " Mary Bohaboj said. " Others had popcorn and candy. It was something to help them get through finals week. " While on a few occasions, Johnson received cookies, homemade banana bread and various other snacks, he admitted one package was very unique. " My parents sent my trombone through the mail, " Johnson said. " I lived in Virginia, I could not go home a lot, we sent things back and forth through the mail. " For students, care packages were an encour- agement whether they came during finals or for no particular occasion at all. What was inside, when they were delivered, and who they were from was merely a part of receiving a " gift " in the mail.

Students discovered that living off campus was not always what they expected. Photo by Jason Clarke. After living in the residence halls, some stu- dents could not wait to live in a house or apart- ment of their own. However, some discovered that living off campus was not all they had expected it to be. Amy Aebersold decided to live with her fam- ily after she received a notice from Residential Life at the beginning of her sophomore year that she did not have a roommate assigned to her. " I just decided to live with my aunt and uncle after I got the letter, " Aebersold said. " I figured that it would be a change of scenery. " Aebersold said living off campus had its dis- advantages. " A disadvantage was that when my aunt and uncle talked to my parents they told them every- thing, " Aebersold said. " Not that I did anything bad, but word got around fast. " Another downfall students who lived off campus faced was dealing with landlords. Braden Randall had several problems with his landlord. One instance involved his landlord having the water turned off. " My landlord in an attempt to have us change the contract over to our names, turned off all his tenants ' water without letting us know, " Randall said. " We all had to go and have it turned on and pay another deposit which we weren ' t expect- ing. " Randall also said he and his roommates had talked to his landlord about fixing problems in the apartment. " My landlord said he ' d fix the tiles the next By Ruby Dittmer day and he never showed up, " Randall said. " We had to have a pair of pliers hanging in the shower so we could turn the cold water on. " Some had problems with landlords, while oth- ers believed that they would have peace and quiet after they had moved off campus. They did not expect to have to deal with neighbors who had parties without informing them. " Being in the middle of the apartment com- plex was a disadvantage, " Heather Orr said. " We had to listen to the people above us and the people below us. Unlike living in the dorms, we had no quiet hours, and the people could blare their stereos as loud as they wanted whenever they wanted. " Orr said that her neighbors were always loud. " One night at 2 o ' clock in the morning, I had an exam the next day and the people below us had their stereo really loud, " Orr said. " I called the landlord and asked him if he could inform my neighbors to turn it down. " Even though she had a roommate, Orr be- lieved that because she did not live on campus that she missed out on campus happenings and was lonely. " I mis.sed that closeness, " Orr said. " I felt more involved when I was on campus and I knew what was going on. It kind of got lonely living in an apartment. " When they moved off campus they did not expect problems to arise. Some discovered living off campus was more difficult than living in the dorms. Off-Campus Living • 91 The lic fvssc facliSiV! s H.

Civil rights leader encourages stu- dents to vote and promote racial harmony. By Ruby Dittmer Call to Action A Ithough the Rev. Jesse Jackson needed no introduction, Northwest presented him with a welcome that left ears ringing and students laughing despite technical problems with the microphone. Jackson, one of America ' s prominent political leaders, spoke of the importance of making the United Slates a strong country. " One of the lessons to be learned was to make sure that the foundation was strong, " Jackson said. " The bigger it got, the more lazy it was. " Jackson ran for the Democratic nomination for president in 1984 and again in 1988. In 1986, he founded the National Rainbow Coalition which was devoted to empowerment, education and mobilization. In his speech, Jackson spoke of three primary points: fairness, hope and character. He also informed students of the powers that they had as U.S. citizens. " If one wanted lower tuition costs and better living conditions, one shouldn ' t just cuss about it, one could have done something about it and could have voted about it, " Jackson said. " Each person had the right to fight for the right. " Jackson urged the audience to regi ster to vote and to vote where they lived at the moment, rather than where they had lived in the past. " If one lived in Maryville, Mo., then one voted in Maryville, Mo., " Jackson said. " If there were 4,000 stu- dents here to vote, then there were 4,000 constituents. " Jackson stressed the need for people not to be color neutral, but to be gender and color caring. Kristen Bohnenkamp shared beliefs that were similar to those of Jackson. " We should care and be more open-minded, " Bohnenkamp said. " Life is too short. " After his speech, Jackson answered questions from audience members who asked about health care and whether or not Jackson would run for the presidency in 1996. " First, we must have gotten the president to have hon- ored his covenant, " Jackson said. " If the fanners had no friend in the race, then I would have considered running. " Bob Dierks believed that Jackson avoided a question he asked. " He really didn ' t answer it, " Dierks said. " He was here to gamer votes for the election. He couldn ' t run in 1 996, but he was preparing for the year 2000. " University President Dean Hubbard believed that Jack- son was a significant American leader who presented a message the University needed to hear. " We needed to hear that one did not judge people on their characteristics or the color of their skin or age, " Hubbard said. An estimated 2,600 people attended Jackson ' s speech which was moved from Mary Linn Performing Arts Center to Bearcat Arena because of the amount of room the arena had to offer. The technical problems at the beginning of evening were forgotten by the last standing ovation. The only sounds that could be heard throughout the arena were the applause of the audience members. Jesse Jackson • 93 Bands, choirs and ensembles scale musical heights. By Tower Staff Northwest Talent T aking stage for another year, Northwest bands readied their instruments and practiced their notes. From choirs to jazz ensembles, they brought the power of music to campus. Part of the harmony was from two of the Northwest choirs as they presented their concerts. Tower Choir and University Chorale performed their traditional Spring Concert. Tower Choir also went on tours to high schools around southwest Iowa and Nebraska and participated in the Musical Gala in the fall and the production of the Messiah. Nathan O ' Donnell, a Tower Choir singer, thought that these shows helped to bring the choir together. " We had grown as one, " O ' Donnell said. " It was like we were gelled. We learned to sing as a group not just as individuals. " Like Tower Choir, Chorale participated in the Musical Gala and the Messiah production. Chorale, which was open to any student interested in contributing their voice, was offered in the fall and spring semesters. Some other members of Northwest ' s musical family were the women ' s singing sextet, Chantelle, and the men ' s quartet, Chordbusters. Chantelle was formed to offer an equal opportunity for women because previously the only ensemble like it was the Chordbuster ' s quartet for men. " It was a great experience, " Chantelle member Brenda Ashley said. " It was something we didn ' t get just anywhere because womens ' groups were hard to find, especially quality womens ' groups. " Celebration, another Northwest group, pulled in audi- ences of music lovers from everywhere. Each show was filled with dance numbers, ensembles, solos and smaller group performances. Members of the audience were de- lighted at their end-of-the-year performance. " The solos were incredible, " Aleena Meyer said. " I was sure that I would go back to see them the next year. " Northwest ' s Varsity Jazz Ensemble joined the other musical talents on campus when they performed at the Spring Concert. Improvised solos, big band jazz and one of their jazz combos were included. " The best thing we did was when we played and opened for the Spring Concert, " Jon Kluiter, Jazz Ensemble mem- ber, said. Symphonic Band, a requirement for instrumental musi- cians on scholarships, also added to the music scene when they performed various concerts. Songwriter Quincy Hillyard assisted the symphonic members on a piece he had written. Rounding out the wide spectrum of musical performers was the Northwest Wind Symphony. Their music was a blend of trombones, the sound of the clarinet, saxophones, percussion and other woodwind in- struments. For one performance, a unique selection detailed the moods and imagery of John F. Kennedy ' s assassination. " Abraham Zapruder who took the film for the Kennedy assassination, wrote the piece, " conductor Alfred Sergei said. " He included Morse Code for the trumpets which, decoded, meant, ' Kennedy was shot. ' " The power of melody came through as Northwest ' s music department showed off its talent. From choirs to jazz ensembles, students scaled musical heights and enter- tained throughout the year.

It was about being responsible for the consequences of our actions. Even though others may have tried to influence us in another direction, it was up to us to stand up for what we believed in. From pressures to finding a certain someone to get married to, falling in love was a path plagued with pitfalls. For Tara Beaver and Jared Groumoutis, the obstacles included dealing with falling in love instantly to an ex-girlfriend and then when to propose. Pregnancy was one decision many did not count on. Whether or not to keep the baby or abort it were two of the many decisions faced by single parents. Despite being 17 at the time, Angela Hilpert decided to keep her baby. Problems with living situations ranged from finding someone to live with to finding a compatible roommate. Because of sexual preference or gender, roommates faced differences in morals and behavior. Mary Garrison and Jeff Stringer dealt with people ' s misconceptions of a man and woman living together platonically. Heather Greene, who found out her roommate was gay, had to decide where she stood on the issue of homosexuality. Dealing with a higher form of existence was also a factor in one ' s life. While religion could sometimes be a controversial issue, it was an intensely personal one. Paganism was Lisa Felton ' s alternative choice and one she took seriously. Medical decisions involved not only the physical but the mental health as well. While not all decisions were life or death, they were crucial none the less. Scott Johnston over time became blind, faced family problems and a new life style. Michelle Leeper became obsessed with being fit. She continually concentrated on diet and exercise. After flu-like symptoms, Jason Fleming developed meningitis. He was faced with a situation which would affect the rest of his life and had to make the decisions of how to cope and who to turn to. Each individual had to make a decision which would change their lives in one way or another. There were those decisions we had to make every day. Whether we might have skipped classes for the day and slept in, studied for an exam or went to the bar or broke up with a significant other, in the end, these decisions influenced important qQ . (T) or oC aspects of our lives. Utog tapliij by 96 • Student Life Reality check ' 97 m • .■ " m z o e- c ' : ' ep ■ s% u O o f? CO , W ;J ' s » €.1 W.

By reorganizing the University, the administra- tion hoped to strengthen general education courses and give faculty more input con- cerning curriculum. We strived for high standards when we were among the first educational organiza- tions to be eligible for a site visit for the Missouri Quality award. However, many of us followed our own calling for quality by working with developmentally disabled adults, judging livestock or improving leadership skills. Adjusting to academic changes was nec- essary for survival even though they might have happened . . . when we least expected it.

Dr. Dean Hubbard sal in tiie comforts of his office as he discussed his job as University President for the past 1 1 years. One project he was proud of was the Culture of Quality program which was responsible for bringing special events to the University. " The Culture of Quality was what made the University so unique, " Hubbard said. " For example, we brought in the Air Force band, those things did not happen and they had not been here long, so we said it would have been a better place if they were here. " Hubbard added that a colleague of his said, " colleges just churned people out into the job market. " Hubbard wanted to believe Northwest was different. " We did not have that attitude here, and that was the reason why people were attracted to the Univer- sity, they sensed that there was a positive attitude, " Hubbard said. Hubbard said the " positive attitude " was found throughout the University. " We had great students at Northwest, I could look across campus and see students from the Midwest who might not have scored the highest ACT scores but were doing wonder- ful things for the University, " Hubbard said. " We also had faculty and staff members from the computer science depart- ment and other departments who were being asked to present their research at national conventions. " Hubbard said he planned on leading Northwest into the future with continuous improvement. These plans did not, however, include increasing the enrollment of students. " We were where we wanted to be with the size of the University, " Hubbard said. " If we got any bigger, students would not have experienced the advantages of attending a (( Dr. Dean Hubbard explains why he supports the Culture of Quality program at Northwest. According to Hubbard, the program helped bring quality events to the University. Photo by Laura Riedel. ByRubyDittmer small public university. " Hubbard had worked with the National Malcolm Baldrige Award for education from the beginning and was excited about the success of the University. " Our goal was to achieve the site team visit, " Hubbard said. " Eight people came and spent a whole week examining the University. " Hubbard spent a lot of time in the office but his free time was spent with his family and enjoying his hobbies. When he was not in his office or attending to University business, Hubbard enjoyed writing and spending time with his grandson. " My 5-year-old grandson, Charlie, and I spent a lot of time together, " Hubbard said. " Just re- cently, he asked me what happened if one cobra bit another cobra so we went and did research to try to find the answer. " Hubbard and his wife Aleta had three children, two of which had already graduated from the University. His oldest daughter who had received her master ' s degree from the University of Nebraska was still taking classes at Northwest. Hubbard said that his father was an electrician who did not even want him to go to college. His mother supported his academic goals by sending him to a prepatory high school. " My mother sent me off to a prep school for college kids near Spokane, Wash, for my junior and senior years of high school, " Hubbard said. In his past 1 1 years at Northwest, Hubbard had accom- plished many goals. He believed through his work, he could lead the University successfully into the future. If we got any bigger, students would not have experienced the advantages of a small public university. " Dean Hubbard •117 A New Team Player In a year of change and reconstruction at Northwest, Dr. Joseph Tim Gilmour believed he was qualified to take over the position as vice president of academic affairs, a position that had been vacated for almost two years. " The new governance structure redefined the position for academic affairs, " Gilmour said. " It required me to redefine the role in a way that supports the develop- ment of faculty teams in the depart- ment and the work of the deans. " Gilmour was excited to work at a University that had high standards. " I was delighted to have come to a place where making education bet- ter was the goal, " Gilmour said. A priority Gilmour had was to work toward the University win- ning the National Malcolm Baldrige Award for education. " When we win the Malcolm Baldrige Award, the only value that admission standards would have is to give us an idea of where our students are, so we would know what types of educational experiences we need to provide " Gilmour said. " The critical measure would be how well- qualified our students are to enter the work place or graduate school. " He believed it was the job of any university to accept different levels of students and add value to them. " The real job of the University was to produce students who could contribute to society in terms of economic develop- ment and improving society, " Gilmour said. An important role Gilmour had was to assess the University and develop improvement strategies that would enable the University to move into a national leadership position. The reconstruction of the three colleges was a change that Gilmour believed was a positive one. Dr. Hubbard talks with Dr. Gilmour. Previously he was vice president for strategic planning at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Photo by Jon Britton. By Ruby Dittmer " This allowed the University to have key responsibilities of the core of the institution, " Gilmour said. " More importantly, the reconstruction helped everyone else focus on student learning by allowing self directed teams within the departments. This was a very exciting prospect. " Gilmour came to Northwest from the Georgia Institute of Technol- ogy where he was the vice president for strategic planning. Gilmour visited Northwest twice before making the decision to come to the University. On his first visit, Gilmour met with students and fac- ulty members in an informal ses- sion. On his second visit, he brought his wife for a weekend in Maryville. The Board of Regents approved the hiring of Gilmour during a con- ference call in late February. Upon his arrival at Northwest, Gilmour ' s home was in Phillips Hall where a room was modified especially for him. " I was a dorm director for two years, " Gilmour said. " Living in Phillips Hall provided me an opportunity to see how our customers lived. " Gilmour ' s wife Brenda, who he had been married to for 27 years, joined him at Northwest later in the year. Gilmour has two children, Jeff and Laura. His 20-year-old son attended John Hopkins University. His daughter Laura, 1 7, was nearing high school graduation. He wanted to help his daughter make the right education choice, which was what hindered him from arriving sooner. Gilmour believed that he was up to the challenge of filling a position that had been vacated for two years.

Tim Gilmour 119 By Chris Triehsch Task Force hopes to strejigthefi University by restructuring colleges Easy as A, B, C Ji s the country suffered through shaky times in the forms of natural disasters and scandals. Northwest went through a structural shakeup of its own in the spring. In order to improve the quality of general education and to give faculty more decision-making power, the University decided to go to a three-college structure. University President Dean Hubbard and an appointed task force unveiled the plan Nov. 29. The Board of Regents passed the proposal within three weeks. The task force included Patricia Bowers Schultz, Faculty Senate president; Dr. Ed Farquhar, chairman of the chemis- try physics department; Dr. Richard Fulton, chairman of the government economics department; Dr. Gerald Kramer, as- sociate professor of marketing management department; Dr. Peggy Miller, associate professor of human environmental sciences department and Don Nothstine, associate professor of marketing management department. Christina Pavalis was the student representative on the committee, appointed by Student Senate. Initially, the three new colleges were designated as College A, B and C. Each college empowered a committee to suggest official names for the Board of Regents approval in the spring. The restructuri ng placed most of the general education courses in College A, which was also known as the College of Arts and Sciences. Because of the reconstruction this college faced the biggest changes. Eight new departments were added to College A. College B, included Business, Computer Science, Agricul- ture and Mass Communication. College C included Educa- tion and Human Environmental Sciences. Under the recon- struction. College C had the least amount of changes with only one new department being added. Hubbard believed general education would be strengthened by being in one college. " Arts and Science owned general education, " Hubbard said. " We expected to see dramatic improvements. They were not bad then, but I had to believe in continuous quality improve- ment. We could always improve and we wanted to create an environment where people were always seeking to improve on whatever it was they were doing. " The task force members also defended their decision, main- taining it would give more power to the faculty and strengthen general education. " The main reason I thought it was good was because it placed general education in one college, " Schultz said. " There would be one person in charge who could coordinate everything. " Miller agreed that general education would be strengthened and also said education in general would be reinforced by faculty having more say in decisions that directly involved them. Many students found their major placed in a different college and some had to adjust to the new deans who were trying to get acquainted with the new departments in their college. Students, for the most part, never expressed vocal opposi- tion to the restructuring. " As long as none of the majors were taken away and if it was designed to improve the education, it was great, " Michelle Leach sai d. " We saved money, but we did not lose anything. " The University saved $200,000 by cutting one of the col- leges. The savings came from the no longer existent salaries of the dean and secretary in the fourth college. The restructuring was also intended to give faculty more say in policies and curriculum. — continued Dr. Dean Hubbard listens to discussion about why Northwest is changing to a three college structure. The restructuring gave the faculty more power in decision-making. Photo by Chris Tucker.

After the cancellation of plans for implementation of the Matrix Model the University went through a restructuring phase. The colleges were reorganized and many job descriptions changed to fit the University ' s new look. One of those positions was that of VPAA. " The new job description made the focus of that job different from what we had experienced, " Shipley said. " The implications of new job descriptions created a dif- ferent operating structure. " A non-traditional approach was taken in the VPAA search. Hubbard compiled a list of col- leagues who had worked in the quality area. This made the search harder because the candidates were not looking for a new job but they were attracted to the campus because of the quality approach. " We were working from a list of people who were involved in the quality movement, " Shipley said. " We wanted to find someone com- mitted to the process at Northwest and find someone who wanted to stay at Northwest for a period of 3 to 5 years. " The spring semester found Northwest again in search of a VPAA after Hubbard ' s no. 1 choice for the seat declined. The second candidate for the position, Joseph " Tim " Gilmour, of the Georgia Institute of Tech- nology, visited the campus in late January. " We were really pleased (with Gil nour), " Shipley said. " As far as a person, he had very good people skills, a good knowledge for quality and a knowledge of what we were doing with quality. " After a year of transitions, the University looked forward to implementing a solid manage- ment format. While twists and turns were many, the University stayed on the straight path to make the best of the situation. Faculty Senate holds a session in the J. W. Jones Student Union to discuss restructuring of the colleges. Initially, the three colleges were designated as College A, BandC. Photo by Chris Tucker.

" That was part of Presi- dent Hubbard ' s philosophy of quality management that busi- ness and industry had been using for some time. He felt that practice could be transferred into higher education. " The changes emphasized a team approach. This was reflec- tive of the departments, who under the three college structure were referred to as faculty teams. The reshuffling of duties gave faculty the responsibility to select their department members, evaluate their effective- ness, set out goals and select their own learning resources to use in their classes. In addition, faculty members were also given the right to nominate and evaluate a chair, develop a budget, choose major equipment and physical facilities, and handle the promotion and tenure of team members. One factor important to students was the fact that faculty members would have more significant input on required courses. Most faculty and administrators thought the added faculty responsibilities would benefit students. " The students had a chance to be the beneficiaries in that the faculty, who are on the front line, would be, at least in theory, making more academic decisions and the administration believed the faculty knew best, " Henry said. Jessica Elgin, Student Senate president, agreed, saying the program was a good idea. " It was a good program in that it let the faculty have more say-so in decision making, " Elgin said. " In the long run, it would benefit students because faculty knew what students needed, and students would get a better education. " Most of the dissension with the new arrangement came from some of the departments who wanted to remain in the same college. Some faculty members in the biology department were also upset because they liked the four college structure the way it was. Dr. Phil Lucido, biology professor, was one of the people that voted against the proposal in Faculty Senate. He was concerned that it would be hard to find one dean for College A who could effectively deal with both arts and sciences without bias. " I was concerned because College A was such a large college and I was worried about the new dean dealing with that entire college, " Lucido said. " Science and agriculture progressed very well with (our old structure). " But the dissension did not last very long and most people agreed with the approach. Hubbard said the changes were designed to benefit students by improving general education and the money saved was just a bonus. " Anytime we kept costs down, we helped students finan- cially, " Hubbard said. " But it also helped students if you improved quality. If we did it cheaper, as long as it did not compromise quality, everyone was ahead. " Dr. Ron De Young, former dean of Business, Government and Computer Science, bec ame dean of College B. Dr. Joseph Ryan, former dean of Education, became dean of College C and Dr. Gerald Brown former dean of Agriculture and Sci- ence, became dean of College A. De Young said he had to do some adapting to the new departments in his college, but thought the change was very necessary in strengthening the general education program of the University. Hubbard was pleased with the faculty and how smoothly the transition from the restructuring to the three colleges had been. " I was proud of the faculty in this area, " Hubbard said. " They were committed and showed real desire to figure out how to implement continuous improvement in the Univer- sity. Most faculty in the nation were not inclined to improve what they did but that was not true at Northwest. " Hubbard and the new deans said they had some adapting to do, but the new three college format was working quite smoothly. " We were on the right track, " Hubbard said. " Anybody who knew anything about quality and its implications for organi- zational design and management agreed. " With the three-college structure in place the University was ready for new challenges in the future in the hope of strength- ening general education. CABINET. Front Row: Chuck Veatch.

Quest for Missouri Q :rd kic into actum for academic improvement By Andrea Friedman St comni ' ittees Striving For Quality in Education ost students probably did not think of themselves as cus- tomers who bought the commodity of education from North- west, but that was the way the University perceived it in accordance with the Missouri Quality Award. Dr. Ron De Young, who was one of the state examiners for the award, said it was modeled after the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award which was given annually to a business organization with high quality. " During the decades of the ' 70s and ' 80s, it became clear to the United States that we were in essence losing ground to other foreign competitors, " De Young said. " People in educa- tion realized the same thing: that we needed to do something about our education. " For the Missouri Quality award. Northwest was among the first educational organizations to be eligible for a site visit. To apply for the Missouri Quality Award visit, the Univer- sity filled out a lengthy application that addressed the catego- ries of leadership, information and analysis, strategic plan- ning, human resource development, education business pro- cess management, performance results, and student focus and satisfaction. " The award criteria are not prescriptive and do not tell an organization what to say in each category, " De Young said. " What it did was force our organization to up front answer the question of what processes they used to satisfy and delight their customers. " The application was returned in May and was reviewed by several Missouri Quality examiners. Northwest was looked at to determine whether or not it would qualify for the visit. All of the judges met as a group to rescore the application after they had individually scored it. In September, several exam- iners visited the campus. " The focus was on the customer and wanting to bring about excellence and satisfaction, " Visit Overseer Vicki Heider from Missouri Public Service said. " Students should have wanted to participate in the process because they would have been affected by it most. " Although the University did not win the aw ard, David Oehler, category leader to the Information and Analysis sub- committee, said the reputation of the University would be enhanced if it would win the Missouri Quality Award. " (For) anyone with a degree (from Northwest), that reputa- tion would rub off on them, " Oehler said. " It would be a prestigious place to graduate from. " Northwest was also chosen as one of three pilot education facilities that would be evaluated for the Baldrige Award. The three would not be eligible to win the award but would help Baldrige evaluators decided whether or not to open the award to educational institutions. The Culture of Quality Steering Committee for Northwest, comprised of seven sub-committees, evaluated organizations along the criteria of the Baldrige Award and worked on Northwest ' s efficiency in preparation for the visit in 1995. " It was designed to identify organizations in the state that modeled good organizational structure and principles, " Oehler said. Although Northwest focused attention on the awards, qual- ity improvement was the true goal. ACCOUNTING FINANCE. Front Row: Dave Hancock, Linda Frye and Dr. Mike Wilson.

By Ruby Dittmer Hawkeye Wilson Students receive extra credit while helping ,,... .... . ..., ,........_._, Extra Points Offer Rewarding Benefits R eceiving extra credit for a class seemed like an easy chore. But for some students, helping the developmentally disabled demanded more time than usual projects might. Tutors found lending their time and positive attitude led to rewarding outcomes with special people. " When people first began the program, they felt sympa- thetic towards them, but their views changed soon, " Patty Kester, co-sponsor of the Nodaway County Recreation pro- gram, said. " Most of the volunteers were surprised at the functional level that they had. It was a real positive experience and I believed that the volunteers learned from it. " Lori Bain volunteered in the fall semester. She came into the program not knowing what to expect. " I was kind of skeptical coming in and I was not sure about working with adults, " Bain said. " But they were like everyone else and they had the same emotions, goals and wanted to be seen in a presentable manner like everyone else. " According to Gerald Wright, special education professor, the program started nearly 10 or 15 years ago. The age of the developmentally disabled was from recent high school graduates to persons of 50 and 60 years old. The program was offered every Tuesday through Thursday. During this time, the developmentally disabled took part in recreational activities such as bowling at the Bearcat Lanes. Participants also worked on arts and crafts or engaged in physical recreation. Other activities included playing games like UNO, Yahtzee and Bingo on the computer. They also prepared for the Special Olympics. Another part of the program included volunteers who tu- tored students one-on-one and taught them different activities such as writing, cooking, laundry and socialization skills. According to Kester, some of the developmentally disabled also worked on reading and math. While she too did not know what to expect. Heather Hughes, volunteered her time to the program because she believed it was a rewarding experience. " The students were a lot of fun to have worked with; I never knew what they were going to do or say, " Hughes said. " Their capacity to learn would have amazed anyone. " Hughes said that the students were " high functioning indi- viduals who would read, perform math functions and put together puzzles. " " When I would explain to the student how to answer a problem and they explained it back to me, I would be amazed at how much they could understand, " Hughes said. Wayne VanZomeren ' s General Psychology class talked about people who were developmentally disabled. As an extra incentive, VanZomeren offered tutoring the adults as a form of extra credit. " Students would say that it was the most worthwhile thing that they had done, " VanZomeren said. In order to receive the extra credit for his class, VanZomeren ' s students had to tutor an individual for at least 13 weeks and then write a paper about their experience. " The tutor prepared a lesson plan, and some of the develop- mentally disabled adults requested homework, " VanZomeren said. " The college student was a special friend, they formed good relationships. " According to VanZomeren, the tutor had to make a commit- ment. " If the tutor did not show up, it was very disappointing to the developmentally disabled adults; they looked forward to this with anticipation, " VanZomeren said. Like VanZomeren, Wright, also offered tutoring as an option for a project in his Introduction to Special Education class which was a required class for all education majors. Education majors had to take at least 16 hours of observation in order to graduate. " It was required in my class, but was an optional project for students, " Wright said. " They could do other projects, but this one was popular. " For many involved, working with developmentally disabled adults in the end proved to not only add extra points in the gradebook, but bonus points for helping others. lb. Developmentally Disabled • 127 By Andrea Friedman Lab series offer theatre students v: ,ice Student Productions Take the Stage s the lights went down on the lab series plays, the actors gave their performances, technicians ran the show from backstage and the director worried about how the play would be re- ceived. But there was something fundamentally different about the plays. " It was all student ran, " Anne Einig, director of the lab series play " Home Free, " said. " All technicians, actors, directors and designers were students. It was all student organized and student produced. " The students who wanted to direct a lab series first selected a play and then submitted a proposal that was reviewed by all the faculty members in the theater department. In this pro- posal, the prospective director outlined such things as the amount of rehearsal time that would be required and the rehearsal space needed. After the proposal was approved, the faculty did not step in, but was available for consultation and guidance. Lab series proposals were rarely rejected. " (The students) did a full-fledged production with a safety net of (the faculty), " Diane Vams, an instructor and costume designer for the theater department, said. " It was a valuable learning experience. " The lab series plays were funded by the theater department and by the University Players, an organization of theatre majors. Vams said the quality of lab series plays was similar to that of main-stage productions. " They ' re very similar, especially in the acting, " Yarns said. " In fact, we were surprised by the quality of the performances that the directors could get out of the actors. For all they had to work with and the time they were allowed, they turned out excellent work. " Connie Juranek, costume designer for " Open Meeting, " said working with student directors was not always as benefi- cial as working with faculty directors. " It was easier working with a staff member, " Juranek said. " Some students had a hard time working with other students. " Monte Hoskey, stage manager for the lab series plays " Action " and " Home Free, " said the student directors had a different approach to directing plays than the faculty directors did. " Sometimes they were easier to get along with, because they had been in your shoes, " Hoskey said. " They were not always as thorough. We didn ' t always learn as much. " Cara Gitto, an actress in " The Open Meeting " and the assistant director for " Home Free, " said she liked working in the lab series plays more than she liked working in the main- stage productions. " Student directors asked your opinion more than the (fac- ulty) directors did, " Gitto said. " Even though they had the authority, they still wanted your opinion. " Theatre majors did not receive academic credit for working on lab series plays. Jeff Johnston, director of the lab series play " Action, " said he wanted to direct a play before he left Northwest. " I wanted the experience of directing a show to see if I wanted to pursue it in my career, " Johnston said. " I wanted to experience everything before I got out of this place. I learned that there was a lot more work that went into the title of director than I ever realized. I learned how to work with people and make compromises and accept other people ' s ideas. " Einig said she decided to direct a lab series play for experi- ence as well. " I learned more about myself as far as what my abilities were, " Einig said. " Mostly just compromise and collaborism and a lot of things about myself. I wanted to do it just for experience — to see if I could do it. " Only after the plays were over, the lights came back up, the actors tool( their bows and the audience responded, did students realize they had reached the goals they had originally set for themselves. 128 • Academics Rick Matthew prepares to shoot his father played by Jerry Nevins in a scene of " Open Meeting.

Higher Education In a day and age when some people got their high from a Tl -.r { t rush of caffeine, one professor got his high another way just by walking into the classroom. With over 30 years of teaching under his belt, English Professor Virgil Albertini had not lost his desire to walk into the classroom. " To me, there was nothing bet- ter than walking in the classroom; that was my high, " Albertini said. " I must admit, I was getting tired of doing syllabuses and grading papers and all that kind of stuff, but I had not lost that zest for walking in the classroom. " Albertini had a long history at Northwest, coming to the Univer- sity in January 1965. Albertini said the reason he stayed on so long at Northwest was because he liked Maryville and the University. " Before my wife and I settled here, we looked for a place that was about this size of town and was also close to the metropolitan area, " Albertini said. " We were happy because we could get to Kansas City anytime we wanted to. " Albertini saw a lot of changes during his time at Northwest. The biggest changes he cited were the size of the University and the improvements of facilities, such as the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center, Lamkin Gym and Owens Library. Albertini said students had also changed over the years. Many times, the change was for the better due primarily to the enhanced motivation level. " The students of the ' 70s were pretty reactionary, " Albertini said. " They would get upset about things that were not done right and would make themselves known. The students of today were more interested in trying to succeed r 1 s r 1 e s c Dr. Virgil Albertini speaks about how the student body has changed.

" Albertini also saw changes in the structure of the Univer- sity. Albertini said the recent reorganization was not unusual to him. " I saw a lot of reorganization, " Albertini said. " Getting down to three deans was a plus and I did like the idea of moving in with the sci- ences. I thought that was a good mix. " Albertini spent most of his life in the town he was bom, Frontenac, Kan. He played football there, which was a rough sport. " I had to play football because if I did not, they would have come after me and beat me up, " Albertini said. " So I figured, I might as well have played football and get beat up that way and get credit for it. " Albertini and his wife wrote a book about the history of Northwest from 1956 to 1980 called the " The Towers of Northwest. " He was also a widely- reknowned expert on author Willa Gather, whom he was writing a biography about. In his spare time, Albertini liked to read, run, bicycle and walk. He also enjoyed going to cultural and sporting events. He said sporting events and being a faculty athletic represen- tative kept him sane. It was Albertini ' s dream to start an Albertini legacy fund, in which certain authors would be brought to campus to speak to students. Albertini had a long stay at the University through the years. He planned on writing, gardening and taking day trips, but retirement was definitely not on his list of future plans. " To me, there was nothing better than walking in the classroom; that was my high ' 130 • Academics Virgil Albertini English Professor Born April 1, 1932 Frontenac, Kan.

But Northwest ' s geography geology department was proving itself to be much more. Classes such as Cartography and Advanced Cartography helped the department reach its high status and prepared technologically-minded students by providing hands-on skills and training that could be applied in many different career areas. To keep up with the growing technological demands of the field, a computer lab was installed in the fall of 1994 in Garrett-Strong. Before the lab was built, everything was drawn by hand. The new computers made a huge impact in many of the geography classes, including Cartography. One student said the improvements made in the new computer lab were unbelievable. " I was taking at least one-tenth of the time to make a map on the computer, " Tom McGrail said. Students in these software-oriented classes learned how to reproduce floor plans, map out the dispersement of recreational parks in a single state and how to add infrastructure to a given site. These classes learned to work with over a dozen different software programs on both Macintosh and IBM computers. Even though the class sometimes involved architecture, it was classified as geographic information that could be stored and examined on the computer. Students were not required to take the class for a geography degree; rather it was a suggested elective, according to geography instructor Stephen Fox. Students interested in taking the class had to complete Map Interpretation as a prerequisite. " Map Interpretation was learning about basic map principles and how to read maps and Cartography was how to draw them, " Tom McGrail said. Cartography, which was taught by Fox, was divided into three sections. He said he tried to incorporate many different areas into the class. The first section was spent working with Autocad, a graph- ics software. " The Autocad section gave a blueprint of Garrett-Strong and each room had a row of data about it like when classes met in there, when the room was available, and how many seats it held, " McGrail said. The second section students spent time making maps by hand. Students had to choose an interesting aspect of a single state to outline and map the dispersement of the state that they chose. In the final section of the class, students spent time working on Map Grapfix. Students were given a design file and they had to add an infrastructure such as waterlines to the layout by using the computer program. " Students should have taken this class if they want to work for a company who wanted them to make maps or create and analyze maps, " McGrail said. " I wanted to work in telecommunications. They stored and mapped information on their phone net- works by using geo- graphic software. " Other geography undergraduates like Chris Chappell were hoping to utilize their map-making experience in other fields. Chappell hoped to land a job in which he could have utilized his skills by making maps for magazines or books. " By taking that class, I learned how to use a database and how to put everything in the database on a map, " Chappell said. Opportunities and classes helped map makers carve their own slice of the world with a latitude to carry them into a career.

However, some students were not aware that behind the papers and books, many instructors led unique lives outside of the classroom. Ken Nelsen, associate art professor, was a volunteer firefighter for the Polk township when he was not teaching. Nelsen said he became a volunteer firefighter when his yard outside his farm caught on fire and was extinguished by the Polk Volunteer Fire Department, According to Nelsen, when he went to thank them for saving his yard, he was asked by his neighbor, who was a volunteer firefighter, to join. Nelsen went through firefighter training twice a month at Maryville, and the community paid his way to fire school twice a year. He enjoyed his volunteer work, which was another reason why he became a firefighter. " Anyone who would voluntarily enter a building that everyone else was trying to get out of was a little crazy, " Nelsen said. Nelsen also enjoyed the aspect of giving something back to his community, as did Pamela Brakhage. Brakhage, Spanish associate professor, gained great joy and satisfaction from being a part-time minister at the Maitland and Graham United Methodist Churches where her average attendance was about 55 people. In order to keep up with her job as minister, Brakhage had attended seminary every summer for the past five years. Although Brakhage did not start preaching until she was 40, she had wanted to since she was a young girl. " At 12, when they (her denomination) told me I couldn ' t become a minister, I decided to go into something else, " Brakhage said. Brakhage also taught a Spanish class to help ministers, who had Hispanic members in their congregations, so that they would be able to communicate better. While Brakhage preached and taught another language. English Professor Carrol Fry spent much of his free time at the movies. Fry did on-the-air movie reviews at 6:45 a.m. for KXCV, the local National Public Radio station on campus. He wrote articles and essays on films he had critiqued for various journals and the Maryville Daily Forum, where he had a weekly column. Reviewing films since 1976, Fry had always liked watch- ing movies, and said that when he was younger, he would " sit in the dark with hands greasy from popcorn and take notes. " " Some movies had patterns of images that communicated messages in addition to the dialogue, " Fry said. " It took 1 5 to 20 viewings of a film to pull everything out of it which could could take a lot of time. " English Professor William Trowbridge was kept busy by his hobby — motorcycling. Over the years, he had owned three motorcycles including his most recent purchase, a Yamaha 750, and sometimes rode one to work. Although he did not always mention it to his students, Trowbridge had been riding motorcycles for about 25 years. " If one took a class and the instructor announced that he rode a motorcycle, some would have thought that was kind of strange, " Trowbridge said. For Trowbridge, riding a motorcycle was a means of transportation and enjoyment. " It was more for relaxation other than anything practical, " Trowbridge said. Another passion for Trowbridge was his poetry. He had published two books containing some of his work, and he held readings and book signings around the area. Copies of his poetry were sold at bookstores around Maryville. Whether it was fighting fires, riding motorcycles, writing poetry, reviewing movies or giving sermons, for some professors there was more to life than just teaching, and students found there was more to their professors than they had imagined.

By Amy Duggan Kelly Mahoney Helping the University while completing education Graduate Assistants Gain Benefits r o some a graduate assistantship may have been a financial comfort in graduate school; to others, it was not just a job, but also a positive learning experience. " The most rewarding part of my job was the experience of teaching at the college level, " Leann Johnson, education graduate assistant, said. " I got the opportunity to share my knowledge of education and help the students. " Assistantships were granted to 126 graduate students. They had to write a letter of what they were going to do with the assistantship and supply letters of recommendation from former contacts. Besides the benefit of working with a professor or teacher in their field of study, the assistants received free tuition, 10 percent off books and a salary for the assistantship. After receiving the job, the GAs had to maintain a 3.0 grade point average and work 20 hours a week. Each GAs ' responsibilities varied because of the different departments they were in, but in general, they assisted in the educational mission of the University. " My main responsibilities were helping with the coaching of the Forensics team members, paperwork for the tournaments, researching material for the students and judging at the tournaments, " John Nash of the speech department said. Even though they had to work 20 hours a week, many put in extra hours if the instructor needed help. For Kathy Bolar, who was working towards her master ' s degree in counseling, her assistantship was different from many other GAs. Bolar worked in Dr. Larry Riley ' s classes. Although Riley was both deaf and legally blind, Bolar did not see his handicaps as a disadvantage. " I learned a lot not just experience-wise, but by seeing what he did, " Bolar said. Bolar kept track of grades, graded extra credit assignments, conducted study sessions and assisted with students ' ques- tions. She also attended meetings with Riley in order to transcribe for him. " I did put in more time than most GAs, " Bolar said. " Com- pared to other GAs, I was busy, but in a different way. " For Michael Reiff, who worked in the Public Relations office for sports information, work experience was recom- mended in addition to schooling. A grad assistantship was a complement to his master ' s in business administration. While many GAs helped with tutoring or grading, Reiff had a different opportunity with sports players. " Work experience was best in an area where I was going to get involved, " Reiff said. " In my case, I actually worked on the road. " Reiff took statistics for baseball and volleyball teams, reported to local and regional media for scores and statistics and often wrote stories for other papers. Nash also put in additional hours because of the department he was in. " Usually I would end up working about 40 hours a week, but if there was a tournament, it was more like 60 hours, " Nash said. Credit hours averaged 1 5 hours for undergraduates but only nine hours for graduates. Reiff found although the hours were less, there was a greater demand when learning to balance homework and assisting. " The way I managed was to do studying during the day, " Reiff said. " I did some outside work on the road such as homework. " While receiving material benefits, such as paid tuition, for Bolar working with Riley was an advantage in itself. " He played a big factor in it because he was a great man and I learned a lot from him, " Bolar said. " If I was ever worried about something, he would say, ' Life ' s too short, don ' t worry about it. ' " GAs did not consider their assistantships a job, but a first- hand learning experience without the must of having to get out into the real world, but staying at school while completing their education at the same time. Graduate Assistants • 137 For the Love of Students i Dr. Ed Browning stared from his window, which over- looked the courtyard of the Northwest campus, and reflected on his 34 years as an accounting finance professor. " I didn ' t think any student going through here really realized how good we were, how good their education was, " Browning said. " We had our students go on to master ' s programs and Ph.D. programs and they competed so well. They found themselves many times head and shoulders over the people that had gone to major universities because they just got a better education here. " Browning came to Northwest shortly after finishing his master ' s degree from Northeast Missouri State University and only had ex- pected to teach here for a few years. " I did just like everybody else that came here, " Browning said. " We imagined this was just some small University and we came here for a while and then we just stayed forever. . .what a great place to live, to raise kids. " Teaching had always been a love of Browning ' s , but he did not have one particular subject that he liked to teach. " I just enjoyed everything, " Browning said. " It was just fun, because what I did was teach students and I just tried to add to their education and to make sure that they understood how all of it fit together. " Whi le many teachers believed in a strict discipline of notes, lectures and test giving. Browning discovered through teach- ing that it was important for a class to feel comfortable with him. " The more I could loosen up a class, so they felt comfort- able with me, so they were not afraid to say whatever they wanted to, they were not afraid to argue with me was the key, " Browning said. " The thing that I discovered was that every class had a personality.

For Browning it was not uncommon to be up by 5 : 30 a.m when he had an 8 a.m. class. " They thought I got out of bed and came to class, no, " Browning said. " I got up and got myself psyched before I went in there. " Besides his love of education and teaching. Browning ' s family was also an active part of his life. Browning had two children, Ashley and Steven. Both attended North- west and were accounting majors. Browning and his son enjoyed buying old motorcyles. For Brown- ing, the common interest in motor- cycles allowed him and his son to spend time toge ther. " My passion was motorcycles, " Browning said. " I loved having him work on motorcycles and spending lots of time with him. " Although Browning had been at Northwest over three decades, he believed the students and the University had maintained the same values over the years. " The changes of the whole facilities around this campus over this period of time was absolutely amazing, " Browning said. " The thing of it was the University just stayed a great place, great students. I would pray for everyone of my students that they would have the opportunity to have a job that they could enjoy half as much as I have enjoyed this one. " After so many years at the University, Browning had no plans to retire. " I will be here forever, " Browning said. " I had no intention of retiring for a while because this was more fun than anything. I would almost pay the University to continue. " In his 34 years at Northwest, Browning had come to love the campus, his students and his work, and he had no plans of leaving soon. " I will be here forever.

In kindergarten they moved up to coloring in between the lines and as they reached high school, they managed to effectively create pieces of art. Finally, as a senior art major, their dreams drew closer as they were able to display their work. " My emphasis was graphic design and I would have liked a job designing brochures, " Mike Miller said. " My art back- ground would have helped me with this field. " Students were likely to benefit from the preparation of presenting their own artwork no matter what they planned to do with their art degree. " If the student planned to teach art or work in a professional gallery, there would be the need for the information and experience retained from the exhibit, " Lee Hageman, chair- man of the art department, said. " The students may not have had the chance to have the experience of preparing their own exhibit because the teachers had always done it for them. " Teachers were there only to help, but it was the students who had to do all the work. " I usually spent about 15 to 20 hours a week in the art department, " Kelli Damron said. " When I chose my art major, I knew that I had to complete a senior show .so I had been preparing for a long time. " In order for art majors to complete their degree, there were several core requirements they had to pass to establish an advance standing. In the fall semester, a senior seminar was held which all seniors were required to take as a part of their graduation requirements. Senior seminar was a way to prepare the students for the senior show. During the class, the students wrote papers, read various required books and learned to write resumes. They were also taught how to present and set up their art. The final step was the senior review. They had to turn in their paper and go before a board of art faculty to present their work. The board asked questions and judged their perfor- mance. " Senior reviews were at the beginning of the spring semester and they consisted of the faculty critiquing the artwork, " Miller said. " Then came writing the senior paper which decided how far I thought I progressed and if an art major was appropriate. Basically, the senior review decided if I could graduate. " If the art majors passed the .senior review, they were allowed to start their show, but if they failed, they had to go through it all again. " I had to express my self eloquently because it was important to be professional, " Damron said. " It was very scary to have so much riding on such a short period of time. " Seniors chose from the work they believed was their best. The point of the exhibit was to take the finished work and finalize it by matting and framing the art. " The artwork was already done. " Hageman said. " The preparation of matting and framing to make the art present- able for the show was the work the seniors had to concentrate on to complete. " Completion of the senior art exhibit was something that every art major had to do in order to get their degree. The last semester of college consisted of tying a lot of loose ends. " The importance of the senior show was to prove their performance as an art student, " Hageman said. " It was the comprehensive for the finality for the degree just like an English comprehensive final. " Performance was important, but personal goals were met as well. " It was a final chance before graduating to show off your work accumulated over the four years that only your class- mates were able to see, " Miller said. " It was very rewarding. " After time and patience, they no longer had to wear smocks to protect themselves from spills and their fingers were clean from the chocolate pudding. They had finally reached their goal in life as having a profession in the arts and receiving the degree for which they had once dreamt about. 140 •Art Exhibits Mike Miller grinds the base of a stell sculpture in the Fine Arts building.

The Northwest livestock judging team evaluated cattle, hogs and sheep in competition in order to determine the best quality animals. " The basic things we looked for were structural correct- ness, body capacity and muscling, " Matt Janssen said. " Then we looked for balance, which was how everything came together. How the animal walked was also very important. " Although it sounded like a simple formula, finding the perfect specimen was not an easy task. " I was always learning what to look for, " Jane Riggan said. " The livestock industry was always changing. I could look at a picture of a short, dumpy cow 50 years ago and tell that things had changed a lot. " The process was complicated by the fact that students had to learn to identify characteristics for the three different species of cattle, hogs and sheep. The travelling team, which included six men and one woman, said their backgrounds affected their ability to evaluate different types of livestock. " I thought that the sheep were the most pointless animal that God ever made, " Riggan said. " But that was because I was never around sheep very much. " The skills team members developed helped them in various ways. " I learned how to identify high-quality livestock to use in a breeding program, " Brian Marshall said. Team members displayed their skills throughout the year in contests against other colleges. They examined a class of four animals, then ranked them based on which ones dis- played the best characteristics. After examining several classes, the competitors then entered the reasons room where they explained their ranking to officials in the livestock business. For most team members, this step was the most difficult part of the competition because they had only a few minutes to explain their reasoning to complete strangers. However, it was also the most important part. " How I talked really determined how I placed, " Justin Malter said. " It separated the men from the boys. " Preparing for contests required a considerable amount of work. The team practiced daily with agriculture instructor Dr. Harold Brown. They reviewed the characteristics to look for in animals and the terms to use during oral justifications. Their first competition was the National Western Livestock Show in Denver, Colo. They also participated in contests in Sioux Falls, S.D., Des Moines, Iowa and Hayes, Kan. The actual contests were different than what team members anticipated. They were surprised at the intensity level and the amount of competition expressed by larger schools. " I had to stay really focused, " Janssen said. " I learned how to think on my feet and stay composed in pressure situations. " While Marshall enjoyed traveling and meeting students from other colleges, others became part of the livestock team for various reasons. " I enjoyed being around livestock, " Malter said. " I ' ve been around it all my life. I thought judging helped me a lot because it developed public speaking skills. It made me feel comfortable talking in front of people. " Brown believed the experiences developed on the judging team made students more valuable in the workplace. " It trained students to make decisions and justify them, " Brown said. " Employers often looked forjudging experience because it made the students better communicators, and they could select the type of livestock that the agricultural industry wanted. " Combining knowledge of their field and effective communication skills, the livestock judging team discovered that finding the perfect female form was not as easy as they first thought. Judging Teams • 745 By Ruby D i 1 1 m e r Siiideuts leiirn skills through workshop series A New Direction in Leadership eadership was an important quality trait that many students tried to perfect. Whether they were presidents or members of organizations, leadership skills were of value. It was this need that prompted Team Leadership and the student affairs divi- sion to sponsor a series of Leadership Learning Modules. Leadership Learning Modules were presented in a series of conferences that were held to promote leadership and to give student leaders an opportunity to learn various techniques. The conferences consisted of various topics such as leader- ship styles, parliamentary procedure and dinner etiquette. " There were several of us in Student Affairs at our retreat; we started talking about leadership development, " Dr. Denise Ottinger, dean of students, said. " So we invited students to sit in a committee with us and we also went to several clubs and organizations to see if we were on the right track and the response was overwhelming. " Team Leadership evolved from the retreat and Ottinger said, that from this retreat, the group decided to develop a leadership series. The group was initially formed by the student affairs division and was open to the presidents of all campus organizations as members. They developed a series that pertained to all organizations and groups. " We wanted the series to cover basic leadership concepts so that clubs and organizations could send their leaders and members on their own personal agenda, " Ottinger said. " If they felt members would be helped by a session, they could come to the workshop. " Ottinger introduced the series by discussing leadership styles at the first conference. There were three types of leaders and these styles affected the way one dealt with other mem- bers of their group. Participants completed several surveys to see how they handled various problems in their group. The results of these surveys determined what style of leadership the person used. In another series, students attended an etiquette dinner. Deb Tripp, who served as hostess for the evening, presented etiquette techniques for a formal dinner before the actual dinner was served to the participants. Angela DeWinter considered herself to have good table manners but attended the conference to learn more. " I wanted to learn if I was doing anything anti-social in the way I ate, " DeWinter said. " I also learned that I was not supposed to dominate the dinner conversation. " The fifth series discussed the motivation of group mem- bers. The session was lead by Lorena Castro. Castro, who was also a member of Team Leadership believed the organization was headed in a positive direction. " We were going in the right direction, " Castro said. " I was really happy even if one person came out to our series because we got a lot of people involved. People were coming out of the woodwork; people that we had never seen before were moti- vated to come. " Topics for the leadership series were decided in advance. " We set the topics up last year when we were thinking of the topics for the series, " Castro said. " Presenters were chosen by members of Team Leadership. " Neil Neumeyer attended Castro ' s session on mo tivation because he thought it would be interesting. " I had never been to a leadership conference, but I was glad that I came because she reinforced motivational techniques that I already knew, " Neumeyer said. Although the leadership series was only in its first year, members hoped it would continue into next year. " What we would do as a team, would be to look at what was accomplished through this series and see what we would like to modify for the future, " Ottinger said. Castro said an additional goal of the organization was to sponsor a day-long leadership workshop for area high school student council members. In a series of workshops sponsored by team leadership and the student affairs division, the student leaders at Northwest were shown techniques to help them lead the way. 144 • Academic Neil Neumeyer jots down notes while attending a leadership series presented by Lorena Castro.

He said the students and faculty were more sophisticated and better prepared when they came to the University. " There were many more higher degrees, " Grispino said, " They did more in terms of presentations, journal articles, authorships, re- search, and they came from a wider geographical background. " Grispino saw the University as moving forward, to being on the forefront of education, with its im- provements over the years. This included the reorganization of the three colleges and Time Quality Management. " It made a lot of sense, " Grispino said. ' Trimming the administrative level saved the institution money. It put the departments in logical places where they could be most effective and appeared to give the faculty more of a say in what happened. " Grispino could not imagine himself at any other university. He chose Northwest for many reasons. " Northwest seemed to me to be the place that supplied the things I was looking for in my career: opportunity for promo- tion and advancement, " Grispino said. " The people I met impressed me as being caring people who put students high on their list. " He had stayed at Northwest over the years essentially because of the students. " The students had a wonderful attitude, " Grispino said. " They were here to learn, they were cooperative and willing to listen to good ideas. They came from generally very good, stable backgrounds. " As a teacher, Grispino believed he had grown, by learning Frank Grispino recalls changes at Northwest. One of the biggest changes was the growing size of the college. Photo by Laura Riedel.

" The students were here to learn and had paid for their education, " Grispino said. " So I felt an obligation to give them the best that I could do. " Grispino had been married for 32 years and had a 26-year-old son and a 23-year-old daughter. When he was not teaching, Grispino enjoyed visiting muse- ums and historical sites, going to movies and playing tennis. " Tennis was my passion, " Grispino said. Grispino also enjoyed working on his 1950 Plymouth Business Coupe as well as in his yard, paint- ing and doing repairs. Grispino had many influential people in his life, but believed that the most influential were his par- ents and the example they set for him. He had learned many things in his life, including the value of persistence, dedication, loyalty and education. " Education paid big dividends, financially and otherwise, " Grispino said. He also emphasized the importance of health and the people in his life. " Being mentally and physically healthy was worth more than anything in the entire world. People should have come ahead of everything else, and friendships and family were invaluable, " Grispino said. In the future, he planned to do some traveling, research, writing and reading, as well as continuing his teaching. " I enjoyed being a professor, " Grispino said. " I got satisfaction in working with students. " In his 30 years, Grispino believed he had received as much from Northwest as he had given. " Northwest seemed to me to be the place that supplied the things I was looking for in my career.

In the Marketing Research classes of Don Nothstine, assis- tant professor of Marketing Management, his students did not simply memorize definitions or take tests. Their actions could affect where a business moved or who it targeted for advertising. His students learned the tricks of the marketing trade by conducting surveys for local businesses, other departments on campus, and even the city of Maryville. During the fall semester, his classes tackled five projects: surveys for the Northwest Missourian, Tower yearbook, Mozingo Golf Course, Time Gift Shop Inc. and Residential Life. These projects shaped each class. " We built the class completely around the project, " Nothstine said. " Everything we did was designed to meet with it. " Although most of what they did took place outside the classroom, Nothstine considered this class to be one of the more demanding classes he taught. " It was a heavy workload class, when I thought about the hours they had to spend in data collection alone, trying to contact three or four or 500 people, " Nothstine said. " It was a pretty time-consuming activity. " If the teacher felt that kind of pressure, the students dealt with it, too. Brian Hesse, who worked on the Residential Life survey, said this class involved three times more work than his other ones, but he learned three times as much. " There was not a day last semester that I did not spend on that project, " Hesse said. " I learned the most in that class out of any of my marketing classes. It felt good to actually do it instead of just read about it in the textbook. " The class was required for all senior marketing majors. Gina Roberts, who worked on the Time Gift Shop Inc. survey, said she was looking forward to the class. " I really didn ' t know much about it, " Roberts said. " When we were assigned it, I was excited because I wanted to do something with a real store. " For the Mozingo project, one of Nothstine ' s classes devel- oped an entire marketing plan for the golf course, which opened in the spring. City Manager David Angerer said the results of that survey were very good. " I looked at this as a great resource for the community, " Angerer said. " One could look at any problem a community may have and the University was going to have people who would know something about it. " While professional surveys could cost up to $4,000, Nothstine said each class survey cost anywhere from $200 to $500 to conduct. The research projects were financed by a University fund for undergraduate research projects, which President Dean Hubbard set up to encourage undergraduates to do primary research. " It provided a good learning experience, but it also involved other departments and the lo cal community, " Nothstine said. " It just met so many objectives in one class. " One of the objectives it met was preparing marketing students for the world they would inevitably encounter after graduation. " I was expecting to get some practical experience, " Hesse said. " I went into the class to get hands-on experience, not learning from the book. " Marketing research required a team effort not only on the part of each group, but also between Nothstine and his students. Hesse credited his teacher for the amount of help and guidance he provided. " He demanded a lot and if I could show I could do it, he would demand even more, " Hesse said. After a semester of mailing lists and countless conferences, Nothstine started another demanding semester with the same situations and hassles. He would not change it for anything because, in his opinion, nothing beat learning by doing. 148 • Academics Don Nothstine hands out papers to students in his Marketing Research class.

By K e lly K e p I e r Presidential a ' lviird provider fhuincidl iJUTntiie for high itchievement Scholars Maintain Academic Excellence ach year, hundreds of qualified students applied for presi- dential scholarships; however, only 10 walked away with the scholarship which could be worth thousands of dollars to a struggling student. Each year presidential scholarships were given to a select number of incoming freshmen who achieved a high quality of academic excellence. Qualification requirements for the scholarship included an ACT score of 29 or better and placement in the top 5 percent of their graduating class. Candidates were asked to send in letters of recommendation and an introductory essay. Fifty finalists were chosen, and they were asked to attend a final interview session in late February. They went before a board of faculty members and were asked to answer one final essay question. " The final competition was nerve-wrecking because all fifty candidates really deserved to win, " Carrie Sindelar, one of the freshmen scholars, said. Students kept the scholarships as long as they maintained a 3.5 and completed an essay each year to be reviewed by the committee. Considering all grade levels, there were approxi- mately 40 students with presidential scholarships; which covered tuition, fees and room and board over a four year period. " The presidential scholarship was great way for me to fund my education, and it gave me an extra incentive to study and keep my GPA up, " freshman .scholar Kathy Kearns said. Beginning their sophomore year, scholars were required to do a work component which included ten hours of under- graduate research or supplemental instruction per week. Melissa Fletchall worked as a Supplementary Instructor as Dr. George English ' s Introduction to Government class for her work component. Fletchall did not believe that the work component caused her to be busier than anyone else, she just studied more because of the high academic requirements that were needed to attain the scholarship. " I personally had always tried to work hard to get good grades, " Fletchall said. " Just to be a 3.5 or better, it was added pressure, so I felt that, but schedule wise, with the work component, I did not think that there was a lot extra. " Some adjustments were made to the presidential scholar system that allowed the scholars to take more credit hours. This modification allowed the students to take as many hours as they wanted, whereas in the past the scholars were limited on the number of credit hours they could take. " The scholarship only used to pay for 15 hours per semester, " Kevin Kooi said. " But now I could take as many hours as I wanted, as long as I didn ' t exceed 1 32 credit hours of my undergraduate degree. " Many believed the academic requirements kept them busy. Some took advantage of the pressure and said that it pushed them to work harder. " Being a presidential scholar actually made things easier for me because I managed my time better when I was busy, and I knew I had to get things done, " Kearns said. Others believed the academic pressure, on top of other activities, got a little hectic. Finding enough time to study was an obstacle many were faced with. " Since I also ran cross country, I had to work extra hard to keep my grades up, " Sindelar said. " Between practice twice a day, meets on weekends, and classes everyday; it seemed like all I had time to do was run and study. " Andy Scott was a presidential scholar who emphasized that studies and academics were important. He often studied for several hours in the library going over notes and thinking about upcoming projects. " I was always up for a challenge, and the presidential scholarship had been a challenge to achieve and was a challenge to maintain, " Scott said. Although some students felt stressed to meet scholarship expectations, most agreed the financial benefits were worth the extra work. Presidential Scholars • 151 MATH STATISTICS.

However, some faculty members took it a step further and went back to the other side of the desk — they enrolled in classes. English instructor Esther Winter said she wanted to under- stand history of the Native Americans more, so she took the class to help her teach her own literature class. " I taught the Multi-Ethnic Literature class sometimes and the American Indian literature quite a bit, " Winter said. " I didn ' t know that much about the history. " According to Speech instructor Connie Honken, she took an education class " just to learn. " It was also a course she needed to obtain an education specialist degree. " I enjoyed going to school and learning; it kept my mind active, " Honken said. " There were so many new things I wanted to learn about, that when this degree was finished or my doctorate was finished, I would probably have continued to take more classes. " Going back to school after graduating could prove diffi- cult. Winter found that taking classes now was much more difficult than when she first began. " I got really annoyed with things that I thought were stupid wastes of time, " Winter said. " I got annoyed when I thought professors were being erratic when they said one thing and they did something different. One of the things that bugged me most as a student was when teachers seemed to be just kind of talking to fill up the time and I knew that I could ' ve gotten out of class a half-hour earlier. " Some instructors were leery about taking classes because they did not know how difficult the course might have been and whether or not they should ask for help. " Homework was challenging, " Winter said. " If I was taking an English class, it wouldn ' t have been as challenging because I would have a better understanding of what was expected but, because I moved out of my discipline, it was a real chore to have to write a paper. " Instructors had problems asking their teachers questions. " I knew the professor as a colleague, but I felt really dumb going to him as a student and asking, ' now what do you mean by this, am I supposed to type this out or not type this out? ' " Winter said. " The same kinds of questions students always asked and as a professor, I got mad at those questions, but I forgot that they were very real questions. " Professors were also afraid that they would not know anyone in the class and, as a result, feel out of place. " I felt weird because it was a graduate class and everybody else in the graduate program knew each other, " Winter said. Professors who taught their colleagues in class believed that the professors were fine students. " I had several faculty members in the past and have found that they had been very conscientious and good students, " Dr. Kendall McDonald, professor of math and statistics, said. Dr. Patt VanDyke, dean of libraries, believed faculty members who were back in the classroom were beneficial to all involved. In her opinion, the growth of the faculty member was beneficial in such a way that they could better relate to their students while they transferred their knowledge. Another benefit gained by professors taking classes was that they discovered a new understanding from a student ' s viewpoint. " The teachers got so used to knowing the answers that sometimes going back and being a learner helped to make them fresh again, " VanDyke said. Many students thought highly of instructors who went back to school or who were taking classes. " I thought that instructors taking classes after they had already had a job showed how dedicated to their work they were, " Lonita Rowland said. " I also thought that it was good because it served as a refresher for some of the things that they might have forgot ten. " When professors entered the classrooms at Northwest, they were not always teachers. Sometimes these non-tradi- tional students came in with homework and exams to study for just like any other student.

However, chemistry professor Ed Farquhar said if he had it to do it all over again, he would. " I liked teaching here, " Farquhar said. " I enjoyed the community. It was nice for a fam- ily and had a good school system. " He said the best part of his years at Northwest had been his interac- tion with students he had taught. " My relationship with students was nearly 100 percent good, " Farquhar said. " Of course, if a per- son didn ' t like the students, he probably shouldn ' t have been here. " In the three decades he had been a faculty member, Farquhar had the opportunity to ob.serve many changes at Northwest. " There had been tremendous changes in the philosophical view- p oints of the administration, " Farquhar said. " It used to be an academic administration, but now the administration was like a business. " He also said past presidents were more concerned with what the money was going to be spent on rather than where the money was coming. He even noted slight differences in the current faculty. " The faculty today were not as interested in the institution as a whole, " Farquhar said. " They tended to be interested in a smaller more well-defined group, although they were still really interested in the students. " Farquhar believed the chemistry and physics department had not changed all that much in terms of the kind of faculty and classes. The biggest change was the physical changes in terms of equipment and new technology. " (Technology) made it possible to do experimental work Dr. Ed Farquhar prepares his notes for the day. One opportunity he had in his 31 years at Northwest was serving on the first Faculty Senate . Photo by Chris Tucker. By Regina Bruntmeyer easily that was difficult 30 years ago, " Farquhar said. Some of the activities Farquhar participated in during his 31 years at Northwest were Faculty Senate meetings. He served on the first senate. He also served on the committee that wrote the constitution for the senate. Before Faculty Senate even ex- isted, Farquhar served on the Fac- ulty Council, which was set up by the administration to approve courses. Farquhar reflected on his experi- ences when he first started teaching at Northwest and how they com- pared with his current classes. " The classes were smaller, " Farquhar said. " I had more contact with chemistry students and the or- ganization of courses was such that I got to know the students well. " He also said there was not only less emphasis on research and com- munity service in the past, but also more emphasis on teach- ing. Farquhar believed some of the changes were positive while others were more negative. " Growth of the University has changed the perspective, " Farquhar said. " The relationship between faculty and admin- istration has grown and become less personal. " When Farquhar was not attending meetings and teaching, he enjoyed reading, traveling, spending time with family and going square dancing with his wife. " It was a great way to relax, " Farquhar said. " It wasn ' t like I was a great dancer or anything, but it was a lot of fun. " Farquhar saw 3 1 years of changes at the University he called home. Like any house, it had its cracks but, in the end, it helped him lay a solid foundation of happiness. " My relationship with students was 100 percent good. ' Ed Farquhar • 155 By T a m i D o d s o n Students take oil projects sirmlar to graduates Trends Grow for Undergraduate Research 1 hile many graduate students completed research projects, a growing trend was for undergraduate students to finish similar kinds of projects. Research projects could be anything from writing a literary analysis paper to conducting a survey. At Northwest, some undergraduate students took on re- search projects similar to the ones that were done by graduate students. Elaine Headlee was one such student. For her Research Methods in Psychology class, Headlee set out to see just how effective the recycling program on campus really was. " I did some research in the library to see what some of the findings in the area I was researching already were, " Headlee said. " I compared those findings to what I found when surveying some students. " Headlee spent almost an entire semester on her project. She used students from Perrin and Dieterich Halls in her research. After her research was finished, Headlee wrote a paper describing her findings. Melissa Megerson described the long process of getting an undergraduate research project approved. " My major was psychology and I decided to do a study about the aggression in elementary school children, " Megerson said. " First, I had to apply for an independent study. I then presented my study to my adviser. Dr. Barnett, and he had to submit it to the head of the psychology department. It took a long time to get it approved because after the psychol- ogy department, it still had to go through another committee. " Dana Hayden ' s project was concerned with Wal-Mart and whether the store hurt or helped small businesses in the towns it had moved into. The project was a part of Hayden ' s Organizational Policies class. The results found that contrary to earlier notions, Wal-Mart was not the problem. " We found out that Wal-Mart wasn ' t as bad as people thought it was, " Hayden said. Research projects were funded in many ways. Some projects received funding from the University while others got money through departmental grants. " We received money from the college of business to do research on our project, " Michelle Heppermann said. Heppermann and Heidi Cue worked on a project for Pi Omega Pi, the business education fraternity, together. Their project concerned the benefits of using the Internet or to use other outlets as a means of communicating with other busi- ness education teachers. The goal of the project was to find out whether teachers from across the country used E-mail and what they used it for. " We worked with Dr. Nancy Zeliff on the project, and sent out surveys in The Forum, which was the magazine for the National Business Education Association, " Heppermann said. Heppermann said she and Cue also sent surveys via E-mail and also wrote an article on their findings which was sent to The Forum. Not all undergraduates who did research projects received college credit. Receiving a small number of credits and having advanced research to do made some students shy away from taking a class where a major research project was required. Headlee and Cue believed students should not feel that way. " It was fun doing the project and I learned a lot, " Headlee said. " I gave my paper to both the Perrin and Dieterich Hall Councils to help in their recycling programs. " Cue was happy to have the opportunity to work on a research project. " I enjoyed it, and I learned a lot about the Internet and what it had to offer, " Cue said. Although research projects might have seemed like a lot of hard work, in many cases, they helped students to learn more about themselves and about the projects they completed. These students proved research projects were not just for graduate students anymore. 156 • Academics Checking through her research, Elaine Headlee compiles information for her project on the recycling pro- gram.

For some, their college career had been put on hold by marriage and children, while others came back to gain better jobs. Non-traditional students handled a full-time job, a family, a commute to school and classwork which complicated their lives. Maxine Barnes, a Maryville resident, quit college to get married and have a family. Although her daughters were grown and she no longer worked, balancing different roles was hard. " This was the first lime I had the opportunity to resume my studies, " Barnes said. Barnes said her family was very supportive of her, but she also said the students at Northwest helped her adjust to college life. " The young people were great and supportive, " Barnes said. " I enjoyed their perspective. I thought they had a lot to offer and I learned a lot from the younger people. " Traditional students also admitted that perhaps non-tradi- tional students gave them a point of view that might have been foreign to them. " Sometimes non-traditional students added a different per- spective through their experiences working in the field and they were more motivated, " Reba Gant said. One student found his way to college because he wanted a better life for himself and his family. He said he already had a job, but a college education would increase financial oppor- tunities for him. " There were times I wanted to quit after starting, " Jim Meek said. " But I didn ' t think I would have made it if I had started right out of high school. " However, despite waiting. Meek encouraged young people to " take college seriously and go for it " right out of high school. Meek had two children, one in junior high and the other in high school, a wife and a full-time job. He also commuted from Bedford, Iowa, to go to class. Alice Schieffer decided to go back to school after working in different vocations. " I had worked several different places, " Schieffer said. " I just decided to do what I really wanted to do; I had to go back to school. " Schieffer, an accounting major, also had a family and an internship to schedule around. " It was difficult, " Schieffer said. " Nicole, my daughter, was in a lot of activities, but family had to come first, then school. " Although college could open up opportunities, another mom of two decided to go back to school for herself with no pressures or worries. " I enjoyed it, " Annette Kline said. " If I hadn ' t, it would not have been worth it. And as far as graduating went, I was not in a hurry. " Kline believed anyone could succeed in college if they desired it. " If I was determined (to go to college) and this was what I wanted, " Kline said. " I would not allow others to take it away from me. " Kline, whose husband was a doctor in St. Joseph, chose Northwest for the anonymity it gave her. " I found people here who wanted to be with me, and they accepted me without knowing I was Dr. Kline ' s wife, " Kline said. Kline also believed she might not have done as well in college in her younger days, but this time, she felt at ease with other students in her classes. " The first day of class, I got bizarre looks, but I felt very welcome, " Kline said. Harold Brown, associate professor of agriculture, said he did not think there was any difference between non-tradi- tional and regular students. " Non-traditional students were usually a little more experienced, but other students seemed to treat them the same, " Brown said. Non-traditional students added a wealth of knowledge and experiences to Northwest. Their dedication to studies, fami- lies and jobs helped them make their way through college.

She hastily tidied a desk covered by mounds of paperwork relating to everything from grades to graduation. She moved a tall stack of mail to the floor to get it out of sight. Meanwhile, a collection of paperweights occupied one comer of the desk, and a collection of turtles, which began accumulat- ing when people mistakenly thought she collected them, sat on a bookshelf against the opposite wall. This was the world of Northwest ' s Registrar. In the 34 years since Girard first came to Northwest, she went from student to administrator. Born in Long Beach, Calif., Girard came to Maryville when she was in sixth grade. Her family moved to give their children a better chance for an education. She attended Maryville High School before Northwest. She received a teaching degree in business in 1964, and returned in 1974 as an employee to obtain a master ' s degree in business administration in 1976. Girard worked her way into administration through a series of jobs that led to her current position. She was the assistant to the director of admissions when an assistant registrar position opened. After a few years, she become acting registar and 12 years ago she accepted her current job. Despite the service she did for students, most students knew her primarily from Brian Bellofs portrayal of her in the Homecoming Variety Show. In her job, she did many things by way of student service. Her office took care of all transcripts and records, certifica- tion for loans and the student directory, among others. De.spite all the paperwork involved in running the office, Girard still appreciated her connection with students. " It was pleasing for me to solve a problem for a student, " she said. " I would give them guidance but I wouldn ' t do it for them. " Girard said even if the University was to close down, the Linda Citaid examines a record with a co-wotker in her oiBce.

" It was like being the cockroaches of the academic world, " Girard said. " They were going to be here long after everything else had gone. " When she was out of the slightly cluttered office, things other than tran.scripts occupied her time. She had a daughter, Laura, who was a senior at Northwest, and two cats to look after. Girard also spent time with a group of friends that she " did silly things with. " One of those friends. Dr. Karen Schaffer, assistant professor of bio- logical science, said Girard had the ability to laugh at things she did. " She couldn ' t tell a joke — that was one of the funniest things, " Schaffer said. " She either forgot the punchline or messed it up. She would even have some jokes written down and she still messed them up. When I first met her ... I didn ' t know how crazy she was. " Crazy or not, Girard ' s co-workers thought she did a great service for them and students. " Linda went out of her way to help students, " Teri Fox, assistant Registrar, said. " Her door was always open. " Girard ' s job not only served students, but it allowed her to accomplish some of her childhood dreams. " When I was a little kid I wanted to be a secretary or a teacher, " Girard said. " This was kind of a mix. " She also wanted to be a character actress in Hollywood as one of those old women who popped up in movies. " I ' d like to be healthy and ornery as sin, " Girard .said. " I always used to say I ' d like to ride a motorcycle and drink beer when I was 65. " Whether she was sending out transcripts or laughing at herself in the Variety Show, Linda Girard remained a fixture on campus. " It was like being the cockroaches of the academic world.

Breaking away from the books, papers and tests helped to teach important lessons that could never have been taught in the confinement of a classroom. Government internships allowed students to use what they learned in the classroom. Students were able to see if what they learned through lecture and study could have been used when they entered into the real world of politics. " It was a nice experience because it was a chance to get out of the classroom and practice what I had learned, " Theresa Zuccarino said. " I also enjoyed getting away from notes and tests. " Many students wondered if the hunt for the internship would be worth the time. The applications, resumes and interviews seemed small compared to the work experience invol ved in being an actual intern. According to Zuccarino, the work was second to none. " I was able to gain insight to an organization which I did not realize they did as much as they did, " Zuccarino said. " Con- nections were made with a lot of people on the committee and it would help me with law school next year. " Zuccarino worked about 20 hours a week on her internship with Alice Hersh, Interim Director of the Chamber of Com- merce in Maryville. " My work consisted of writing papers, putting reviewed and updated briefs on file and helping plan the legislature trip, " Zuccarino said. " It was through the legislature commit- tee that they appreciated my input because it was beneficial to see issues from a college student ' s perspective. " Some college students gained experience through an in- ternship. Trent Skaggs worked as an intern for the Missouri Department of Economic Development in Germany. " Interns were provided with hands-on experience and it was through that experience that opportunity was found, " Skaggs said. " I had the chance to really concentrate on my field of study. " While in Germany, Skaggs had the opportunity to travel and learn about the country ' s market, which increased inter- est in his chosen vocation. " I learned about the European market and attended trade shows throughout Europe, " Skaggs said. " It helped broaden my understanding of international business. " One opportunity students had every semester was the chance to gain a Washington internship. Not only would they earn experience, but the department also offered credit hours to students who participated in the program. " We offered an on-going program and it was offered to any student even if they were not government majors, " Dr. David McLaughlin, associate professor of government, said. " They could intern for a semester or an ent ire summer. " McLaughlin believed that the Washington internships were beneficial to students. " Washington internships were great experiences for the students because they offered the hands-on experience of working in the city where most of the government in this nation took place, " McLaughlin said. " It also gave the stu- dents an opportunity to have a job offered to them. " Most government students waited to intern until their last semester of college. " I usually recommended that students wait until their last semester before they interned, " McLaughlin said. " There was a definite 70 to 80 percent of interns that were offered jobs. " Even though career opportunities were available, the expe- rience was important, too. " The people were very helpful and interested in helping me grow as a student, " Skaggs said. " Internships offered job opportunities but it was a matter of getting out there and working really hard and it took total dedication. " They might not have been ready to run for office but students gained hands-on experience in their government internships, and it gave them the knowledge they needed to pursue their future careers. 762 • Academics Government intern Theresa Zuccarino works in the Maryville Chamber of Commerce.

" The purpose of the after-school program was to provide a safe, fun environment for children, " Chris Lydon, coordinator of the after- school program, said. " There were a lot of latchkey kids with no one to watch over them or provide fun activities. We were here for their safety. " Lydon oversaw seven student workers each semester. She also worked closely with the children, who were divided between school age children in first through sixth grade and 3 to 5-year-olds. The program was a component of the Child- hood Center, directed by Dr. Peggy Miller. It was open to any Maryville area child and ran from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays. Each week the children studied a particular subject such as food, community helpers or the five senses. Learning activities including art, puzzles and books were used to focus on the topic. Jolcne Voris planned events for the younger group. " It was a task to get them to do what they were supposed to, " Voris said. " I liked the challenge of working with the preschoolers. They needed more help because they were younger. " The class, which was held in Brown Hall, allowed the children to participate in a number of different activities. They visited the Student Recreation Center and went swimming. They also kept busy with art projects such as decorating t- shirts. In addition, the children enjoyed gym time. Some of their favorites were soccer and a game called, " Clean Up Your Backyard. " However, the workers made sure not all events were structured. " I liked to let them utilize their free time, " Lydon said. " They had been in class all day so they needed time to be with their friends. Play was very important for that age because that was how they developed social skills. " Student workers were in charge of almost every aspect of the program. They found they had to remain focused to make sure the children had the best learning experience possible. " It was a lot of responsibility to constantly keep your attention on every single child, " student worker Heather Wineinger said. That responsibility was also what made the after-school program appeal to students. " It was really a better experience than student teaching, " Ree Dew said. " I got to work with all different age groups through the program. " Discipline was the area after-school workers found the most difficult to control. " The hardest thing was a situation that needed discipline and I didn ' t know how to handle it best for the child, " Dew said. " I learned that if you treated them with respect and as an equal, they respected you more than if you talked down to them. " Although the children benefited from the learning activities and the extra attention, the student workers profited as well. " It was good growth experience, " Lydon said. " I learned as I taught the kids. " Majoring in child and family studies, Lydon planned to use the skills she developed in the program as a social worker. " I had a lot of responsibility that helped prepare me for the professional world, " Lydon said. Learning side by side. Northwest students and Maryville children not only developed important skills that prepared them for life; they also had a lot of fun. COUNSELING CENTER.

For this reason, many students probably met Del Morley. Morley, who was the director of financial assistance since July, had been employed at Northwest for seven years. Previously, he was an assistant bas- ketball coach and a physical educa- tion teacher at Northwest. He also had been a director of financial aid at Tarkio College for two years. Morley said he was in charge of organization, administration and implementation of student finan- cial aid reports. Some of things he tried to accomplish were improv- ing the electronic computing capa- bilities, revamping the scholarship programs and working on a direct lending program where students could receive financial aid directly from the federal government. Morley said the decision to be- come a financial assistant was a personal one. " I was looking last summer for a position that would allow me to get off the road, " Morley said. " I had been on the road so much with recruiting and traveling with basketball. " Some of the physical changes to the campus that Morley had seen since completing his graduate work at Northwest were the addition of the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center and the Owens Library as well as the renovation of the Administra- tion Building. He also noticed some administrative changes over the years with emphasis on the quality of academics. Morley also said he felt the faculty and staff at Northwest were trying to emphasize student input and become more responsive to students which, he thought, helped the Univer- sity. In the financial aid department, Morley said his job had become more computerized than when he started at Tarkio. Del Morley, director of financial assistance, sits at his desk in the financial aid office. Morley left his job as a Northwest basketball coach because it demanded time on the road. Photo by Chris Tucker. By Keith Rydberg He also said the financial aid program was more federally controlled which, in his opinion, was not good. " The rules and regulations just continued to pile up which was unbelievable, " Morley said. " As far as trends, we had gone to a situation where the grant programs had not kept up with the academic costs. " This trend was also reflected in the students who needed financial aid, according to Morley. He said students used to do anything to avoid taking out student loans and now it was one of the first things they would ask about when they entered into the financial assistance office. Morley also said the recent reor- ganization changes in the colleges on campus had little effect on the financial aid department, but he thought it was better for the Univer- sity. " It was a matter of how people accepted it and perceived it, " Morley said. " If anything, it improved it because we had three people instead of four. " Morley said what he enjoyed m ost about his job as a financial assistant and a coach was the college-age clientele since he believed that he made a difference in students ' lives. The only thing that Morley disliked about his job was most students came into his office with problems which led to negative associations. Morley also said when he had the time, he enjoyed golfing and reading. However, he said his four main hobbies were his children: Michael, Ryan, Zachary and Nathan. Del Morley had helped many students obtain the financial aid needed to continue their education at Northwest. As the director of financial assistance and a coach, he had a genuine interest in helping people achieve their goals.

Del Morley 167 By Keith Ry d b e r g Irinoiuiud comptiter lab sinipltfies experiments New Technology Adds to Science Department he Northwest chemistry department moved one step closer to the 21st century with the implementation of a new chem- istry lab in Garrett-Strong. The lab consisted of 2 1 computer terminals and two televi- sion terminals which could be used to display information on the computer terminals for an entire class. The computers also had two hard drives: one for chemistry and one for mathemat- ics. According to Dr. Ed Farquhar, chemistry department chair, chemical experiments, which were too hazardous to be per- formed in the traditional wet lab, could now be performed on the computers with no lab fees or risk to students. " (The chemistry lab) gave us an opportunity to do more things and a little bit different things, " Farquhar said. " I couldn ' t take 40 students into a laboratory and do a chemical reaction which was even remotely explosive. " Farquhar also said the system was capable of showing chemical reactions at varying rates of speed. One of the examples he described was a grain dust explosion that could happen at an elevator. Footage of an explosion was saved on the hard drive and could be slowed down to show students what made the explosion occur. " This was an example of a reaction that occurred very rapidly on the surface, " Farquhar said. " I could do that kind of thing in a small scale that I couldn ' t really do out with a group of students. " Farquhar believed the new lab did not really change his teaching methods. The same experiments were being per- formed as in the traditional wet lab although more experi- ments could be completed. Pat Watts, lab assistant, explained with the aid of the computers, students and teachers could control the atmo- sphere of experiments which was a great help for teachers who were trying to explain scientific principles. " It was hard to show students what was supposed to happen in an experiment when the experiment failed, " Watts said. Watts also stated that all of the experiments were saved on the hard drive and therefore could be reviewed at any time. Angela Bickford believed there were some definite advan- tages for lab assistants. Teachers did not have to worry about using toxic chemicals. " There was no danger of anyone being hurt with the computer iabs so it was a step in the right direction, " Bickford said. Jennifer Huntsman shared the views of Farquhar and the other lab assistants, but she believed the computer should not replace the wet lab. She also explained she would rather work in the wet lab than the computer lab. " In the real world, I couldn ' t do everything on the com- puter, " Huntsman said. " I didn ' t get the hands-on experience I needed in the computer lab. " The total cost of the lab was $ 1 25,000 and software would be purchased from time to time in order to update the system. Farquhar said two-thirds of the chemistry experiments were done in the wet lab in order to allow students to try experiments for themselves. However, he felt the computer lab was a welcome supplement to the chemistry department. " The lab gave students a wider variety of experiences, " Farquhar said. " The experiments always worked as well, due to the controlled environments. " Michelle Gaines, chemistry tutor, stated the lab was used mostly by Calculus III and General Chemistry students. She explained many students could have had the opportunity to use the lab since General Chemistry was offered as a general requirement course. Gaines also said the computer asked questions to students working on experiments about what they thought was going to happen next. However, she said this was a disadvantage at times. " The computer kept going until I got (the questions) right, " Gaines said. " This was a problem if I was mostly dealing with yes-and-no questions. " Taking a step closer to the 21st century, the chemistry lab provided students with a new way to perform experiments. 168 • Academics DEAN OF STUDENTS OFFICES.

They soon discovered this was not always the truth. Lab books, calculators, lab fees, supplies and other required materials often added to a student ' s college expense. Some students were upset when they were hit with the unexpected extras. Books were included with the tuition. However. Sarah Showers spent approximately $40 her first semester on addi- tional books for classes. " I wasn ' t expecting the extra cost, " Showers said. " I thought that all of the books were included with the book rental. " Shalom Barber, a pre-professional zoology major, spent $50 to $100 on lab books required for her classes. " It wasn ' t all that surprising, " Barber said. " It all depended on the teacher whether we used them a lot or not. It was just one of those things. " College Algebra students were required to buy a Texas Instruments TI-85 calculator, which was $99.97 at the Bearcat Bookstore. The cost of the calculator was a surprise for .some. " I was kind of mad about it, actually, because I had to pay for my own college expenses and it was hard for me when a class required something I didn ' t expect, " Julie Miller said. Other students had different kinds of expenses. Music major Amy Guenthner was required to attend 15 music recitals a semester, an expense that came out of her own pocket. " It was good because it made me appreci ate the arts that came through Northwest, but it was also tough because I was on a tight budget, being an out-of-state student, " Guenthner said. " I really didn ' t expect to have to spend so much. " Ray McCalla expected to have to buy additional supplies as a music major. " For my applied Music Class, I had to buy methods books which cost anywhere between $5 and $25, " McCalla said. " I also had to buy a metronome, valve oil, song books and I was expected to pay for instrument repair. " McCalla was fortunate, because he was able to use a tuba from the University and did not have an additional cost of an instrument. " I expected it, so I just grinned and beared, " McCalla said. " Buying the books was like building up my own library, so it was okay. " Even though there were extra costs, students said they were still saving money at Northwest compared with the costs at other universities. In the first month, art major Brian Meyer spent $200 worth of art supplies, but felt it was " reasonable to expect (students) to buy the supplies because tuition wasn ' t too high. " Students who bought the required books also had ways of using them again. Ci ndy Young, who had spent an average of $40 on books per semester, usually resold them to friends or people who needed them. The bookstore set up a table at the end of every semester for used books where students usually got about half of their money back. Other students opted to try to sell their books through the computer bulletin board system where they could set their own prices. Young thought Northwest students definitely had an advantage even though they had to purchase a few books. " It was awesome because, at most schools, I would have had to pay hundreds of dollars, " Young said. Jen Shults. an education major, used to buy extra supplies to make her lesson plans unique until she discovered she could go without spending any extra money and use what she had. " I felt like I had to go all out and buy construction paper and markers my sophomore year, but now that I was a senior, I discovered that I could make just as cool stuff from things I found in my junk drawer, " Shults said. The extra money spent on supplies and books added to the costs of being a college student and even though they were inevitable, students did their best to keep up with the expenses. Class Costs 171 Stepping onto New Ground His airplane had just touched down at Kansas City Interna- tional Airport when he stepped off the plane; his feet touched Midwestern soil for the first time. Roger Pugh looked around and all he saw were strangers. He scanned the crowded terminal and then he saw the friendly face of Bob Henry. So began his first adventure in the Midwest. " Lots of people said to me, ' why would you move from the state of Washington to Missouri? ' " Pugh said, " it was different and I was ready for a change. I liked being here. I found Midwest people to be very nice and the country was green with a lot of trees. I was tired of fighting the same battle. I needed a new war. " Pugh was the newly appointed Executive Director and Enrollment Management for Northwest. He chose this institution for higher learning over others because he thought Midwesterners, particularly Bob Henry, were friendly. " Bob Henry, who I answered to, came down and picked me up in Kansas City and he also took me back to Kansas City, " Pugh said. " I had interviewed at other places too, and what he (Bob Henry) did was a little bit above and beyond what other people would do. He spent more time with me. " Pugh was responsible for the recruitment and enrollment of new students, overseeing financial aid reports and Career Services. He also organized the campus tours given by Stu- dent Ambassadors and tried to make college life seem not so much of a scary place for incoming freshmen and transfer students. " I oversaw the offices; there were basically two parts of admissions, " Pugh said. " There was the recruitment area, like tours and things and then there was the processing, the actual By Sharon Johnson people that had grown off the applications and I was also in charge of financial aid and orientation. " Pugh did not believe the reorganization that had occurred on campus would interfere with the way admissions was, and that was beneficial. " It didn ' t seem like it would affect us directly, " Pugh said. " Some of my staff felt the importance of an academic vice president of aca- demic affairs was probably good from a standpoint. I always looked at a way to fine tune and try to get more decision making into the hands of the people. " Another change Pugh believed would be beneficial to students was implementing a revised enrollment application process. To enroll in school last fall, one needed to fill out an admissions, scholarship and financial aid application. Pugh hoped to refine the applications so that students avoided filling out duplicate information on the three forms. " We were going to try to streamline that together, " Pugh said. " Last year would probably become the last year that we would process the forms separately. " Pugh and his office hoped to focus more attention on the retention rate that Northwest had. " My biggest concern was the retention issue, " Pugh said. " We seemed to have a higher than average drop in students and I was trying to understand why and trying to put some services together that would address that. " He was a newcomer to the Midwest, who wanted to " kind of step back and watch things for a little while before he made any changes. " He was optimistic about the future and hoped that he had not taken on a job larger than he could handle. Roger Pugh sits in office his where he oversees paperwork such as financial aid reports and applications. Pugh helped new students feel more at ease with college life. Photo by Chris Tucker.

Organizations •193 Senate keeps students Informed By Hawkeye Wilson and Amanda McManigal Fighting Amendment 7, recognizing organizations and holding the freshmen elections on the computer were some of the issues that Student Senate handled. Student Senate, the governing body of all students and organizations, registered more than 700 students in their campaign against Amendment 7. According to President Jessica Elgin, more than 500 students voted in the November 8 election. To battle Amendment 7, which was proposed by Mel Hancock, Student Senate started a committee at the beginning of the semester. Chairman of the committee, Brian Marriott, thought that through a constant education process and hard work, the student body could defeat the amendment. " We understood that a lot of students needed to get educated and vote from the beginning, " Marriott said. " We set up different tables around campus and went to every campus organization and told them about the importance of voting. " Besides registering students to vote, members of the senate handed out fliers against Amendment 7 to parents and community members during Family Day and the Homecoming Parade. Lisa Stubbendick, chief of staff, found many parents were interested in Amendment 7. " We had parents ask questions about what they could do in their hometown, " Stubbendick said. " A lot of parents didn ' t even know about Amendment 7. " Helping students and improving the campus was the main purpose of senate. For the first time. Student Senate held the elections for freshmen on the vax computer system. A record number of 487 freshmen voted in the elections. Kelly Nuss, freshman class president, believed that having the elections on the computers made it more accessible for freshmen. " It was easier to vote for the freshmen because they probably wouldn ' t have known where to go if they weren ' t on the computers or much less vote. " Nuss said. An annual activity for senate was sponsoring a blood drive with the American Red Cross. Over 180 students donated blood. " It gave students a chance to give back to the University and the community, " Cori Elifrits, vice president of student affairs, said. A large part of senate was recognizing student organizations. Some of the organizations recognized included the Rollerhockey Club, Northwest Pagan Alliance, Sigma Alpha and the Turkish Club. Elifrits believed it was important to have diverse organizations on campus. " It gave students a chance to become more involved, " Elifrits said. " The more organizations we had, the greater chance we had of including everyone. " The executive board was faced with ethical issues when a Northwest Missou- rian columinist reported that they had used $200 out of senate funds to eat at Red Lobster for their traditional Executive Transitional Dinner. " The event served as the closing in a series of transitional workshops between the two executive boards, " Elgin said. " This leadership technique was modeled after successful businesses and organizations who partook in similar activities. " By fighting Amendment 7, holding elections, recognizing groups and dealing with controversy Student Senate kept students informed. ' The more organizations we had, the greater chance we had of including everyone, " Corf Elifrits said. Brian Marriott ex- plains how Student Sen- atecultiuated student inter- estintheelec- tion.

II 196 Organizations f Students gain production Experience By Jeni Klamm Broadcasting students were wired for a talk show which focused on subjects that entertained Northwest students. Students were given the opportunity to expand their horizons with broadcasting experience by working on " Wired, " a Northwest video and talk show. T.J. Jenkins, program director and creator of " Wired, " was in charge of selecting the topics and the people involved. " I wanted to create a show that had music videos in between segments of newsworthy material for Northwest students, " Jenkins said. " I thought of the idea several years ago and we actually tried a show called The Cann Show, ' but it bombed. " Jenkins wanted the show to focus not only on life around the college campus, but also activities outside Maryville. " We had gone on road trips to places such as Mt. Rushmore, " Jenkins said. " We wanted students to know what was waiting for them, but we also wanted them to stay involved with the activities on campus. " Carrie McVicker enjoyed watching the show because of the videos a nd interviews. " It reminded me of a show like MTV, " McVicker said. " I did not get MTV in the dorm, so it was nice to have a replacement. " Students involved with the television practicum course produced the show. The students were divided into groups to create different episodes. Jenkins encouraged students to give him ideas for the topics of the show. " I liked the students to give me their ideas, " Jenkins said. " I liked to be selective because the class took a lot of time. " Jenkins admitted extra hours and dedication were a must for the production. " The practicum was not for everyone, " Jenkins said. " Students had to be serious about doing a good job. " Jennifer Schlamp worked on the show because she wanted to get more experi- ence with television production. " I had learned a lot in the class, " Schlamp said. " We all got an opportunity to voice our ideas and T.J. tried to make it click. We divided up into groups to shoot different events on campus for the benefit of the students. We put in a lot of hours, but it was worth it. Students recognized me from the show and that was a good feeling. " Schlamp had an opportunity to announce some of the music videos for the show and see the results of her work. " Being a video DJ was my favorite thing to do for the show, " Schlamp said. " It C plTTif r ]clc( r was exciting to be able to see the finished product after it had aired. " " Wired " entertained, informed and helped students while at college. Those involved with the show were given a chance to experience television production and see the aired results. Tim De Long zooms in on T.J. Jenkins during a " Wired " shoot.

Wired • 797 Rollerhockey offers sporting Alternative ' Wejust wanted to go out and have fun playing hockey on the ice, ' ' Josh Plueger said. By Becky Mellon and Mike Johnson Fast and furious, the players slid across the ice and chased the puck towards the goal. With a love of pain and speed, the newly formed Northwest Rollerhockey Club was recognized by Student Senate. " We just wanted to get established and be recognized, " Ray Dinkins, president of the rollerhockey club, said. The club started a few years ago when a couple of guy s began to play rollerhockey on the blacktop near Phillips Hall. " As far as setting up an organization, it was not easy, " Dinkins said. " Starting from the ground up had been hell, but the fact that these guys wanted to compete really drove them. " Instead of playing on the blacktop near Phillips Hall, the group met at Skate Country every Sunday to hold their meetings and practice. When Colden Pond was available, the group played ice hockey. According to Mike Essam, vice president, the only downfall was each member had to pay $2 every time the group met at the skating rink. Colden Pond was an alternative location for the group, but weather and the solidity of the ice made skating conditions unpredictable. Despite these problems, the club fought to stay together and play the sport they enjoyed. " We just wanted to go out and have fun playing hockey on the ice, " Josh Plueger said. They did everything on their own and used their own money to do so. They ordered their own jerseys with the Northwest logo on them. The group also got a faculty sponsor in order to get recognized by Student Senate when Ken White, mass communication instructor, agreed to support the group. To earn their equipment, the club had fundrasiers. They held two clinics for area children to teach them the basics about rollerhockey. Members taught the children different techniques like how to pass and the proper way to handle a stick. " The children showed a great interest in the sport which looked good for the future, " Dinkins said. They had to split 50 percent of the profit from the clinics with the roller rink they were using. Despite their fundraising efforts, the rollerhockey club ' s primary focus was on competition. One highlight for the club was the hockey match held against Northeast Missouri State University. The only requirements to become a member were rollerblades, a stick, $3 dues and a " love of pain. " Activities they had planned were Kansas City Blades games and hockey get togethers. Because of the physical strain the sport put on one ' s body, Dinkins said a person had to be very athletic to join the rollerhockey club. " The games took a lot out of a person and anyone that wanted to play must have been ready to give 100 percent, " Dinkins said. 1 any played football, baseball and other more traditional sports. However, with sticks in their hands and rollerblades on their feet, the Rollerhockey Club brought an alternative sport to Northwest. Daue Danner straps on his rollerblades in prepara- tion for play.

Photo by Jason Clarke. 200 • Organizations Discovering alternative religions through Paganism By Susan Porterfteld and Cynthia Hansen A wide variety of organizations were available for students to join on campus, but there was always room for more as new groups made their way through the detailed process for recognition. The Northwest Pagan Alliance, a group composed of alternative religions that believed in many gods and goddesses and a reverance of nature, was one of the new groups approved by Student Senate. " Paganism was very branched and there were many belief systems, " Lance Wilson, vice president of the group, said. " I didn ' t think the group as a whole subscribed to one particular branch of Paganism. They didn ' t e ven have to be Pagan as long as they wanted to discuss current religions. " The alliance was started by several people who shared alternative views on religion, and the Pagan Alliance brought people of alternative beliefs together. " We knew there were people out there with similiar beliefs, " Wilson said. " We wanted to discuss religious issues and advertise the group. " At the beginning of the semester. Charles Christopher, Lisa Felton ,Julie Sharp and Wilson began organization of the group, and it did not go as smoothly as they had first thought it would. " It was difficult at first, " Wilson said. " We couldn ' t post anything on campus or get things approved. After the Senate approved us, it became easier. " Some of the activities the NPA featured included reading tarot cards for donations, conducting a full moon ritual and managing an open forum between the alliance and the Religious Life Council. Some did not feel very optimistic about the meeting. " I didn ' t think the Religious Life Council had a very good opinion of the Pagan group, but I might have been biased, I really disliked the Christian religion very much, " Christopher said. Although some Pagans did not feel the session solved all the problems, the open forum with RLC proved to be a settling outcome to an unsettling situation. There were tensions between the Christianity affiliations and the NPA, and the forum was held to relieve some of that tension. Eight members of the NPA were there to to tell about themselves and to answer questions. Because there was no hostility at the meeting, the outcome seemed to calm everyone ' s nerves a bit. Those involved with the RLC believed that the forum had positive results. " There was concern about it from some of the groups, " Dawn Gardner said. " There was a lot of questions and comments, and I think it cleared up a lot of misconceptions for both sides. " The group survived the year of controversy and made a name for themselves as they continued to gain new members. Although their beginning was a little rocky, with opposition from some students on campus and finding enough members to be recognized, the Northwest Pagan Alliance kept their faith and managed to bring another group to campus.

Organizations • 201 Social sorority focuses on Sew ice By Amy Duggan Putting others ahead of themselves was something Tau Phi Upsilon, a community service sorority, strived to do. They devoted their time to helping others, donated money to help prevent diseases and gave food to those less fortunate. Consisting of 21 members, the 4-year-old sorority required every member to be at least a second semester freshman, have a 2.5 grade point average and perform nine hours of individual community service per semester, in addition to sorority hours. The members of Tau Phi Upsilon saw themselves differently from other sororities because of their focus. " Our main purpose was to serve the community, " Jennifer Baker, social chair, said. The social sorority was founded in Maryville and had no national or regional chapters. " Northwest was the only place we were located, " Dawn Milburn said. " The sorority based itself on individualism. " Because of its small membership, Lisa Stull, community service chair, believed the group ' s recognition was important. " I would have liked to have been recognized as a close, small sorority, " Stull said. " We had a lot of things to contribute. I would have just liked people to have been aware we were here. " For Halloween, instead of trick or treating for candy, the group decided to take a different approach to the recognized day. They used this opportunity to inform Maryville residents of their philanthropy, lupus. Raising money on behalf of the inflammatory disease was a main goal of the group. " We trick or treated for money, " Milburn said. " We got a dollar at every house we went to and gave out information on lupus. " According to Stull, they also donated money to campaign against Muscular Dystrophy, gave nonperishable items to food pantries, held a fall informal, participated in Toys for Tots and anonymously helped needy families by giving money. " The work that was most rewarding was doing things for people in Maryville, " Stull said. " I liked to know where the money was going and who we were helping. " Baker agreed not only serving local residents was important, but also one ' s motive for helping others was essential. People helping people was what the group had been founded on. " I had always felt a strong need to serve the community in the best way that I could, " Baker said. While they spent many hours with their sorority, the members had no trouble taking time out of their schedules to help those in need. They not only gave their time to students at Northwest, but also provided aid to Maryville residents. ' The work that was most re- warding was doing things for people in Maryville ' Lisa Stull said.

Tau Phi Upsilon • 203 Rush procedures bring more Members By Karissa Boney Fraternities and sororities kicked off the year with Rush, bringing in new members and building their chapters. The fall of 1994, however, was a new beginning for Greeks at Northwest as Rush changes increased fraternity numbers and brought a new sorority to campus. Although the Interfratemity Council made dramatic changes in Rush procedures the previous year, the effects were more evident in ' 94. According to Tom Veiregger, IFC president. Rush went from a three week formal set up to an informal process that began the first day of school and ended Dec. 9. The same time frame was also available during the spring semester. An increase in Rushees was partially attributed to the new informal system. Numbers were up for fall fraternity Rush with 150 new members. This new system had become common on other campuses and a change for Northwest was pushed by national chapters. According to Veiregger, the old system was not effective and after a slow start in ' 93, chapters were starting to It UJ3.S S d to realize the benefits of the new system. " The new system gave flexibility to chapters and independents, " Veiregger said. " They weren ' t rushed through and they became more familiar with the Greek system. The chapters also got to know the Rushees a lot better. " By not sponsoring three large events, fraternities scaled down to smaller, less expensive functions throughout the semester. IFC continued to work on the improvement. They sent out a new Rush brochure that included alcohol policies, dates of Rush and other information. Panhellenic Council was working equally as hard toward improvement with sorority Rush. According to Panhellenic President Courtney Haney, the main adjustments in the fall were room changes. Instead of using four rooms in the J.W. Jones Student Union, two Rush parties were held in the Conference Center each day. The larger rooms were easier to use and much cooler for the large chapters. " The conference center had a lot more space and created a better atmosphere, " Kelly Johnston, Phi Mu Rush director, said. With over 250 girls going through Rush in the fall, Panhel kept busy preparing for the much-needed new sorority to join Northwest ' s Greek system. " We had high numbers in Rush and it was sad to have to turn people away because there was not enough room, " Haney said. " So Panhellenic decided this benefited everyone. " After formal presentations in September, Sigma Kappa was welcomed to campus to colonize a new chapter. Initial Rush procedures were held during the end of October and were different than the formal sorority Rush parties. Sigma Kappa alumni rushed young women through get-to-know-me games and one-on-one uiterviews which brought in 106 members. The following fall, Sigma Kappa would join the other four sororities in formal Rush process. Although rush policies had changed, the event was still a success as the Greek system welcomed new members. have to turn people away because there was not enough room, Courtney Haney said.

Love of music promotes Harmony By Mike Johnson They could sing and dance, but most importantly, they all shared a common bond of love for melody and harmony. The men of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia gave students of Northwest something to listen to — music. Phi Mu Alpha ' s purpose was to encourage high standards in all areas of music and to promote brotherhood. " We wanted to share the brotherhood of music, a bond which every member of the organization shared, " Jason Elam, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia president, said. " We wanted to give everyone a chance to experience it because it meant so much to us. " The group participated in many of the music events on campus such as Homecoming, where they took first place among the independent skits for the second year in a row. The performance, which was a musical takeoff on " Fantasy Island, " also won best overall skit. The group ' s skits gained increasing popularity because of Brian Belloffs portrayal of Linda Girard. Because of their popularity at the Variety Show, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia concentrated on the music and presentation. " We would start rehearsals the second or third week of the fall semester doing choreography and memorizing lines, " Elam said. " We spent 10 to 15 hours a week until the time of the show. " The group also helped out with other activities including raffles and concerts. " We had a big Bowl-A-Thon and raffle, " Aaron Hufty said. " Events like this got us involved and the campus involved as well. At the recitals and concerts, we often gave receptions after the shows and did a lot of ushering for them as well. " Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia ' s big event was its " Man of Music " concert which featured music written by American composers. " ' Man of Music ' was a tradition for Phi Mu Alpha, " Hufty said. " It ' s been a great success in years past. " According to Hufty, the members were what he enjoyed about Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. " The best thing about being in the organization was the brotherhood and j- hi PirC thl f fellowship ofthe guys, " Hufty said. " We all had a common interest in music. Where others weren ' t as willing to talk about music, all of the guys in the group were excited about it. " David Perry, who had been a member of the group for two years, liked the fellowship of the many members. " I really enjoyed the camaraderie and the brotherhood the guys had, " Perry said.

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia • 207 Tireless dedication brings award-winning Tradition By Fay Dahlquist Endless hours of work, many sleepless nights, wishes to be snuggled in bed and the stress of that last minute paper due the next morning were just a part of what it was like to be a Tower yearbook editor. The hours of dedication were the keys to the book ' s success the past 10 years. Tower yearbook, a Northwest tradition for the past 74 years, had become one of the top college yearbooks in the country and had achieved numerous awards in design, photography, copy and theme. Excellence in these areas earned them 10 consecutive All American Awards from the Associated Collegiate Press and placed the publication in the top 3 percent in the nation. Tower yearbook had also received seven Pacemaker Awards from the Associ- ated Collegiate Press which placed them in the top 1 percent of all college yearbooks in the country. " Being the editor of Tower yearbook was an honor and it gave me and other student editors a sense of pride in what we did, " Karissa Boney, 1994 Tower editor in chief said. The 1 984 Tower yearbook, " Lookin ' Better Than Ever, " started a tradition of All American ratings that would continue through the 1993 book, " Easier Said than Done. " " The tradition of excellence was great for students who wanted to gain experi- ence while attending a smaller school, " Angela Tackett, 1 995 Tower editor in chief said. " It was something for every staff to strive for each year. " Because Tower received 10 consecutive All Americans, they were inducted into the ACP Hall of Fame. This was an achievement that only six other colleges had acquired. " It showed that we could compete with any school, regardless of size ... it was recognition deserved and it really shined a light on Northwest, " Cara (Moore) Dahlor, editor in chief of 1990 Tower, said. Laura Widmer, mass communication instructor and adviser of student publica- tions, was pleased with the book ' s performance. " It just went to show you what a group of talented and dedicated students could do, " Widmer said. rXd d CllCS. L Cl ° celebrate their achievement, approximately 35 former Tower editors came back to Northwest from places as far away as New York, Texas and Washington D.C. for a reunion.

Tower with all their achievements gave students the opportunity to work on a pablication that provided them with knowledge they would need in their careers.

Athletes and Injuries • 215 TEAM COMES FROM BEHIND WITH HOMERUN Young and eager were words to describe the Softball team, according to head coach Gay la Steenbergen. After a 14-16 season in 1 993, the Bearcats added to their team a variety of underclassmen. The " Cats ended the season with a final record of 26-28 and the 54 games the team played set a school record. " We lost some seniors who had a lot of experience and who had played for a while in our program, " Steenbergen said. " Record wise, we were about the same even though we were relatively young. " Freshmen such as Karen Hogel, Sandy Larsen and sophomore Amber Cremeens contributed to this season ' s improvement. Hogel believed that teamwork was one of the primary reasons for team success. " We worked together well, " Hogel said. " There was also good competition on the team and that pushed me to go farther. " Sophomore Kristi Sweeney and senior Renee Hahn carried the pitching load. Sweeney led the pitching staff with a 2.03 ERA, while Hahn was second on the team with a 2.06 ERA. Sweeney was a force in shutting down opposing team ' s offensive firepower. " 1 was very confident with the defense that played behind me when I pitched, " Sweeney said. " We needed to blend our defense, pitching and hitting into more solid performances on the field. " The team showed an ability to come from behind in many games. Two such games where the ' Cats came back were against Central Missouri State University and Mis- souri Western University. In the game vs. CMSU the ' Cats came back from a 4-1 first-inning to top CMSU 5-4. Freshman outfielder Kelly Randies singled to lead off the fifth-inning and was sacrificed to second by third baseman Hogel. Freshman catcher Jacque Burkhart then rocketed a hit off the glove of CMSU pitcher Kara McQuinn to bring Randies in for the game winning run. " We were down at times and able to come back, " Steenbergen said. Highlights for the year included a strong second place finish in the Northwest Soft- ball Invitational in April. The young ' Cats showed inexperience was not detrimental to success.

DESPITE EARLY INNING STRETCHES BEARCATS ♦ • ® • « «•« Despite solid batting averages, first inning troubles hindered the Northwest baseball team to a 17-27 overall record. The games against Emporia State Uni- versity demonstrated the ' Cats potential and problems. Emporia started one game with a home run and defeated the " Cats 1 8- 6. The 2nd inning brought nine runs for Emporia to help assure them of the win. The team made a comeback later in the season with a 11-21 victory over Emporia. A rally in the 7th inning of nine runs gave the " Cats the victory. The ' Cats also had swept Doane College with a 1 3-3 win. Unlike many of the games, where their rally came later in the game, the ' Cats gained seven runs in the 2nd inning to put the game out of reach. The first inning proved to be the biggest problem for the team. The ' Cats were outscored 51-19 in the first inning. On the average, most of their runs came later in the game. Without the first inning. Northwest would have had a 14-6 record. " Early in the game, we had problems, " David Hobbs said. " We weren ' t ready to play and had a little trouble concentrating. If we got off to a lead, we were able to relax a little bit. " The ' Cats went into the MIAA North Division conference with 12 wins and 14 losses. Playing 18 of their 44 seasonal games, the team faltered in the conference, with just five wins and 1 1 losses. Even though the conference sea.son was a losing one, there were some solid individual performances. Shortstop Brian Witthar had a .403 batting average during his 1 24 appearances at the plate. Bill Carter had a .362 batting average and a .57 1 stolen bases percentage. Catcher Brian Davis hit .336 for the ' Cats and had 25 RBI. Hobbs said that although the team had some tough times, everything worked out. " Overall, we did OK, " Hobbs said. " We had some let downs, but we played pretty well as a team. Everyone got along really well which helped. " Other individual highlights included Witthar being named to the AU-MIAA baseball first team and Davis earning a spot on the second team. The ' Cats had trouble getting over the first inning stretch, but with solid indi- vidual performances, they were able to get over the hump.

CONFERENCE STANDINGS LEAVE TEAMS IN • I «•«•« MIDDLE OF THE PACK Bad weather and injuries contributed to a 5th place finish at the MIAA Outdoor Track Field Championships at Joplin, Mo., for the men ' s track team. The men ' s head coach Richard Alsup described the season as a year of injuries. " We spent a lot of time this year rehabili- tating injuries, " Alsup said. " We would certainly remember this season as the year of the rehabilitated. " Despite the injuries, there were high indi- vidual finishes at the conference meet. Mitch Dosland finished 2nd in the high jump and 3rd in the long jump at 22-3 3 4. In spite of all the ailments and setbacks during the season, Alsup was positive about his team ' s performances. " It was not an embarrassing year by any means, " Alsup said. " But there were cer- tainly some areas at different times that were tough to field people for within that event. " Shannon Wheeler said injuries were to blame for the lower finishes. " We had a lot of injuries, so by the end of the season our numbers were not that deep so we didn ' t do that well at conference, " Wheeler said. The ' Cats boasted only one MIAA Divi- sion II qualifier which was Justin Sleath. Coming into the new track season, the Bearcat women ' s track team had high hopes. They reached their goals and, in some cases, exceeded their expectations. Jody Doekter and Tanya Drake led the team in the Missouri Southern meet. Doekter set a new school record in the high jump of 5-8. Drake posted first in the 100-meter hurdles in 14.44 seconds which was her personal best of the season. Four other teammates brought home 2nd place finishes for the ' Cats. " The seven or eight women who were turning up to go to the conference meet did very nicely, " women ' s head coach Ron DeShon said. At the MIAA conference track meet, the ' Cats finished 4th as a team. Although no individual finished in first place, there were several 2nd place fin- ishes. Jody Doekter finished 2nd in the high jump with a jump of 5-5 3 4. Drake and Godreau tied for 2nd in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 14.77 seconds.

Track • 221 ' CATS EXPERIENCE COMRADERIE AND S E R V E Winning 13 of their 23 games, the Northwest men ' s tennis team boasted a season of more highs than lows due to teamwork and experience. Although the team lost their first four games, they came back with a 5-4 win over University of Central Oklahoma and 9-0 sweeps over Drury College, Rockhurst College and Emporia State University. The ' Cats finished 4th out of eight teams at the Emporia State tournament. Earlier in the season, the ' Cats won their singles matches at Creighton, but lost all of the doubles matches and, as a result, the tournament. However, during the MIAA champion- ships tournament, the ' Cats posted a solid 4-2 record for a second place finish. Al- though Southwest Baptist University placed first with 83 points. Northwest posted 45 points and had some solid indi- vidual performances. Freshman Nick McFee was MIAA champion with a 20-6 record in his singles matches and Eduardo Portillo was runner- up with a 17-8 record. In doubles action at the championship, Portillo and Eduardo Jarolim finished sec- ond with a 12-12 record. Bill Bobo and Mike Pesenti finished third at the MIAA meet. Bobo and Pesenti finished the season with a record of 5-3. Practice and solid teamwork contrib- uted to the ' Cats winning season. " There was a lot of comraderie, " Eric Kantor said. " Everyone seemed to get along with everyone else. It was great get- ting to know everyone. " Bobo and Jeremy Gump were named to the All-MIAA Academic team, which re- wards excellence in academics and sports. This was Bobo ' s third year on the team. Experience also contributed to the ' Cats ' success. Only three of the 12 netters were freshmen. " We had a lot of depth on the team, " Kantor said. " We had a lot of veterans who knew exactly who they were up against and how to play to their strengths. " The ' Cats had three seniors, twojuniors and four sophomores, who had played ten- nis the year before. This made for much better chemistry and teamwork. Match for match, the team boasted suc- cess in both singles and doubles play.

Men ' s Tennis • 223 CHEMISTRY AND TALENT LEAD TO BEARCAT • • The women ' s tennis team persevered, de- spite injuries, to finish with not only a winning season, but a record of 1 8-5. Northwest became only the 2nd team in MI A A women ' s tennis history to win three straight team titles. At the conference tour- nament, the Bearcats with 72 points, edged out Northeast Missouri State University, which had 64 points, for the title. Lincoln University accomplished the same feat from 1983 to 1985. Kara Fritz had an undefeated week in singles and doubles competition. She was the only Northwest women ' s player to en- joy such a week. " It was great, " Fritz said. " I was hitting the balls right and just seemed to be in a groove. We practiced a lot and that helped quite a bit. " The team continued on their winning record losing only to Division 1 teams. Northwest captured individual champi- onships from Julie Caputo at No. 2 singles, Andi Schneider at No. 4 singles and Maria Groumoutis at No. 5 singles. " We were happy with the outcome, " Schneider said. " We had problems with players being injured, but we still managed to play well against the competition. " Julie Caputo, who was the No. 1 player the year before, was out most of the season with a wrist injury. The duo of Schneider and Lia Ruiz claimed the No. 2 doubles championship, 6-2, 7-5, against Northeast opponents. This match clinched the championship for Northwest. " It was a close match, " Schneider said. " It came down to that game to decide which team would win the championship. " No. 1 singles player Lucy Caputo cap- tured 3rd place in the MIAA tournament and No. 3 singles player Ruiz was runner- up. Second place finishes also went to the No. 1 doubles team of the Caputo sisters as well as the No. 3 team of Fritz and Groumoutis. Schneider said despite the challenges, the ' Cats had terrific teamwork. " We all got along so well together and that made the season a lot of fun, " Schneider said. " We played a lot of Division I teams and we were all really competitive. We were always really confident and tried our best. Everything just seemed to work.

As a result, the ' Cats compiled an overall record of 0- 1 1 during their year of transi- tion. The winless season was the ' Cats first since 1979. According to Tjeerdsma, a lack of atti- tude and commitment were just a couple of the things that marred the season. " The attitude of the players was that they didn ' t expect to win, " Mel Tjeerdsma said. ■ ' When you had that attitude you weren ' t going to win very often. " Coming into the season the ' Cats lacked experience as they had a starting lineup that was made up of five seniors. Inexperience was evident at the quarter- back, offensive line and runningback posi- tions. Sophomore quarterback Greg Teale played behind an inexperienced line most of the year. " He was in a tough situation all year long since he didn ' t have a solid offensive line protecting him, " Tjeerdsma said. " I felt that Greg really did come on strong at season ' s end. " Teale cited the new offensive game the coach brought in as the biggest change. " The biggest thing to adapt to was the change of offenses, " Teale said. " We had a young team and we probably didn ' t play too well at the beginning but we got better by the end. " Tjeerdsma said the offensive system and lack of true athletic ability were two other difficulties the team had. " We needed to improve our overall ath- letic ability since we didn ' t match up well with many teams, " Tjeerdsma said. Despite the season ' s lowpoints and losses, there were some positive aspects. The ' Cats played a strong Homecoming against Missouri-RoUa. The Miners narrowly etched a 20-15 win. The ' Cats also had a strong showing by young offensive players. Starters Tony Colenburg and Wade Hanson were two standouts. Colenburg led the ' Cats in with 39 1 yards on 1 1 4 attempts. Hanson hauled in 27 passes to lead the ' Cats in receptions. With a year of rebuilding and experience behind them, the ' Cats looked forward to the season ahead. By Galen Hanrahan DESPITE A DIFFICULT SEASON, FOOTBALL TEAM ' keeps VhEiV HOPES H| ' gH Football • 229 VOLLEYING TO A WINNING SEASON, BEARCATS • With only two upperclassmen to lead the way. Coach Sarah Pelster started the season with a young team. Ten freshmen and sophomores came through and proved that their talent made up for their lack of experience. " I knew they had a lot of talent and ability, but we just didn ' t know how quickly they would come together as a team, " Pelster said. " I guess I could say we had high hopes for unanswered questions. " Practice brought their skills together, but the will to succeed pushed them over the line. " Our goal was to finish fifth in our con- ference, " Jennifer Pittrich said. " We were determined to do our best — good, bad or indifferent. " The Bearcats picked up strength as the season progressed, and Pelster ' s concern about their inexperience began to fade. " As the .season went on, we improved more and more, " Heather Potts said. " What started out as ' potential ' turned into reality for us. " As conference play came to an end, the Bearcats posted a 26-9 record going into the MIAA Round Robin II tournament. However, it seemed as though they just could not get the upper hand, suffering three defeats from teams they had beaten earlier in the season. " We would have liked to finish higher in the conference, " Pittrich said. " But I think we had set a precedent for ourselves to build on. " The ' Cats finished the season 8-10 in the conference and 26- 1 2 overall. Not only was this their best season since 1 984, but it also ranked the Bearcats sixth in the MIAA. " It felt great to have a winning season, " Pittrich said. " We utilized our potential and set a good foundation for a very strong team in the future. " The Bearcats excelled individually in the season as well. All four hitters ' totals combined to equal 300 kills. Diann Davis led the team in attack attempts and overall blocks, while Pittrich led in career and overall assists. " Each player led the team throughout the season in one category or another, but it was a team effort to them, " Pelster said. " I was very pleased with this group. " The potential possessed by the young Bearcats came through, as they proved that teamwork could overcome an ything.

Volleyball • 231 TEAM HAS HIGH FINISHES FOR WOMEN • • • f Running on an endless road kept North- west cross country runners in shape as the youthful women ' s team had a season of high finishes. Even though there were six freshmen and three upperclassmen on the team, freshman Kathy Keams did not think there was much competition between team members. " There was not any competition between the freshmen and upperclassmen because we all wanted each other to do well, " Keams said. The Bearcats started out the season with a first place finish at William Jewell Invita- tional aided by Keams ' first, Renata Eustice ' s fourth and Jennifer Miller ' s fifth place finishes in the 5K. The ' Cats finished first at the University of Arkansas Invitational. The ' Cats placed third out of 21 teams at the NCAA Regionals which led to a 16th place finish nationally. " Wc all felt like we had a good season even though we did not make it to nation- als, " Keams said. " We went to the Ozarks to prepare for regionals and work as a team. We finished third out of 26 teams. We felt really good about our performances. " Following a year of promise, the men ' s DIFFICULT cross country team stumbled with a high number of injuries. The season started with a third place finish at William Jewell Invitationals. However, in the meets following, the ' Cats faced the injuries and sickness of many players. During the University of Missouri-Co- lumbia Sport Shake Challenge, the team placed sixth out of seven teams. Despite Shannon Wheeler being named MIAA player of the week, many players on the team had some problems working to- gether. " We did not perform well as a team, " Coach Richard Alsup said. " Shannon was running steady but we needed better perfor- mances from our other runners. " One bright spot was the Concordia Clas- sic where the team placed second overall and boasted four top ten finishers in the 8K race. Towards the end of the season, the team began to find its footing with a fifth place finish at the MIAA Championships. Despite a difficult season, the ' Cats had hopes for the coming season and promise for the future.

WINNING The Northwest men ' s basketball team was virtually unstoppable when they played in the Bearcat Arena. However, losses on the road and injuries kept the Bearcats from having a perfect season. The Bearcats finished the season one game below .500. In the Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletic Association, the Bearcats were 7-9. Their overall record was 13-14. Men ' s basketball coach Steve Tappm- eyer said althoug h the Bearcats did well in the games played at Bearcat Arena, Northwest ' s performance at away games needed improvement. The team did not win any games on an opposition ' s home court. " It was very disappointing as far as the way we played on the road, not being able to get any wins, " Tappmeyer said. " We started the conference season with very high expectations. " Tappmeyer said one of the most devas- tating losses was in the MIAA conference opener against Northeast Missouri State at Kirksville, a game in which Northwest held the lead for most of the first half. " We led early in the game 1 8-6 and were really in control of the game, " Tappmeyer said. " Then our point guard, Steve Simon, went down with an ankle injury, and they beat us by four or five points. " Tappmeyer said the loss was difficult to deal with since Northeast was then in first place for much of the remainder of the season. Chris Johnson, assistant men ' s basket- ball coach, said the ups and downs of the season helped the team grow stronger. " We had some of our kids mature, " John- son said. " I think we grew a little through some of the tough times we had. " Johnson added, however, the goals the team set for itself at the beginning of the season were not met. " We wanted to have a better record than what we had, " Johnson said. " Unfortu- nately, we had some sicknesses and injuries that really hurt our practices. We had guys leave at the beginning of the year who would have helped us. " Johnson also said the players needed to maintain a better level of consistency throughout the season. " We ' ve had some players who showed up one night and played good and the next night, they didn ' t do as well, " Johnson said. — continued MEN ' S BASKETBALL TEAM FACE DISAPPOINT W l V H U N fVn I S H E D G O A L S Guard Steve Simon over- comes Lin- coln Uni- versity ' s de- fense.

" Rick Jolley was the leading scorer with an average of 15.4 points per game. In a game against the Blue Tigers of Lincoln University, Jolley scored 30 points and seven rebounds in the 93-76 win over the Blue Tigers. The next night out against Missouri- Rolla, Jolley followed his career high out- put with a 19-point, eight-rebound show- ing. With the combination of those two per- formances, Jolley was named MIAA player of the week for February 1 3. Jolley said one of his favorite games was when the Bearcats were able to upset the Central Missouri State University Mules in Bearcat Arena. Jolley scored 21 points and 1 1 rebounds. Early in the game. Northwest trailed the 1 2th-ranked team in NCAA Division II 1 6- 7 but the Bearcats were able to trim the Mules ' lead to six by the end of the first half. After pulling to a 68-60 lead in the sec- ond half, CMSU closed within two points. However, Northwest forced the Mules to turn over the ball on their last two posses- sions which enabled the Bearcats to finish the game with a three-point victory. Jolley added through the struggles of the season, the players still worked together as a team. " We worked very well together, " Jolley said. " Everybody was friendly with each other. " The Bearcats traveled to Stillwater, Okla., in December for a showdown with the Division I Oklahoma State Cowboys. Northwest kept the score tied in the early minutes of the game, but the Cowboys eventually pulled ahead 91-53 to win the game. Nonetheless, it was an demonstration of what the Bearcats were capable of doing. John Golden, Jolley, and Scott Fidler each scored 10 points for Northwest. Fidler also had seven rebounds and Jolley had six. Transfer students added to the success of the Bearcats. Although Chad Blackman did not have a lot of playing time this season, he was the high scorer in the 97-34 victory at home against Faith Baptist Bible College with 15 points. Blackman said one game that stuck in his mind was when Northwest lost to the Griffons of Missouri Western. In the game. Northwest fought an early Griffon lead of 47-3 1 to cut down the Grif- fon lead to nine points at halftime. Even though the Bearcats pulled within three points in the second half, they were never able to go ahead and take the lead. The final score was Missouri Western 92, Bearcats 87. Blackman added the psychological at- mosphere at the Missouri Western fieldhouse was one of the factors in the Bearcats ' performance. " It was an intimidating game since we were playing on their home court, " Black- man said. " Plus, they were our arch-rivals, so the loss was disappointing. " Ironically, it was another game with Mis- souri Western that ended the season with the Bearcats. This time the ' Cats did not fare so well. On February 27, the Bearcats suffered a 1 12-73 loss to the Griffons in St. Joseph. Although the season was not without its disappointments, the Bearcats had several high points such as being virtually unde- feated at home and making impressive showings against teams in bigger divisions. The Bearcats had their share of difficul- ties, however, they showed other schools that the Bearcats were far from being declawed.

" It was a rebuilding year for us, " Head Coach Wayne Winstead said. " We were a young team with 10 freshmen and sopho- mores. We played really well against the veterans in the MIAA. " Ending the season with an 1 1-15 record, the ' Cats used their defensive and rebound- ing skills to begin with a four game win- ning streak. The impressive start, made their first loss hard to take. " It was really disappointing, " point guard Pam Cummings said. " It came down to the very end. We played really hard and got some bad breaks. " Bad breaks were something that the women learned to live with. " A lot of games we should have won, but things didn ' t go our way, " Amy Krohn said. In a home game against the University of Missouri-Rolla, the Miners charged onto the court after their teammate shot a free throw at the end of the game. The referees did not assess UMR with a technical foul and Northwest lost 65-66. The officials admitted they had made a mistake, but no recourse was available. The team relied on each other to regroup after the loss. Some players believed their biggest strength was camraderie. " Our biggest strength was how well we got along, " Julia Oertel said. " We had a below .500 record. A lot of teams would have fallen apart, but we didn ' t. " Pulling together, the team achieved some notable wins, such as a 64-63 victory over Central Missouri State. Krohn, the high scorer of the game, shot a free throw with 13 seconds left to break the tie. " It was the best game of my life, " Krohn said. Throughout the season, the ' Cats worked to improve their offensive skills, even in their last home game against the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Earlier in the year, the ' Cats lost to them 78-89. The ' Cats came back to achieve a 92-67 victory. " We did so many things well, " Jonnie McCown said.

They stepped into posi- tion awaiting the fierce competition that followed. To them, at that moment, it was business. It was as if this were more important than the very air they gasped. Then it began, and before it was over, one team had reached for the elusive brass ring and tugged with all their might to get what they deserved. The other went home exhausted, drenched with sweat and empty-handed. Intramural players experienced the thrilling rush of victory and the stone-cold agony of defeat. Victory and defeat brought a kaleidoscope of emotions for Northwest students when they participated in intra- mural athletics and activities. Intramurals were divided into four divisions for competition: fraternity, sorority, men and women. An individual or team ' s performance, which depended on overall placing in each activity, meant points toward the Supremacy Trophy awarded at the end of the year. The Supremacy Trophy was awarded to the group of students, in each division, who earned the highest number of points, overall. However, regardless of placement, individual or team champions from each division in each sport received a T-shirt for their performance. But, T-shirts meant little when the overall goal was the Supremacy Trophy. " To win (an individual activity) meant an awful lot, but I knew that it gave me an advantage to get a chance at the real trophy, " Adam Courier said. The intramural season was spiced with sports and activities for anyone ' s taste such as flag football, indoor and sand volleyball, tug-of-war, basketball, racquetball and swimming. Chad Dressen, who helped Tau Kappa Epsilon win the fraternity division of the swim meet, said competition was what kept him involved in intramurals. " I loved the competition the intramurals provided, " Dressen said. " I was not a great athlete, at least not good enough to have been on some of the varsity teams, but intramurals gave me the chance to play against good competition.

For Trey Pay ton, intramurals were a way to humiliate his peers in athletic competition. " I loved the competition, " Payton said. " I looked forward to making other people look bad. " In some cases, it was not a matter of out- playing your opponent, it was the chance to compete against many different types of players. " The thing I liked so much about intramurals was getting the chance to play different kinds of people, " Jeff Baker said. " It just wasn ' t the same to play the same person every day. If I played intramurals, I got the chance to go up against someone different each time. " According to Bob Lade, Intramural and Recreation Director, the intramural athletics and activities on campus began in the 1960s with traditional sports such as football, basketball and volleyball. Flag football was an especially popular activity which students participated in. Sixty-one teams were formed from the four divisions and participated in the flag foot- ball tournament, which culminated in four championship games at Rickenbrode Stadium. Courter, a member of flag football fraternity division champion Phi Sigma Kappa, said intramural competition was an integral part of campus activities that everyone took pride in. " Intramurals here were a really important part of (Phi Sig) involvement on campus, " Courter said. " We all took a lot of pride in winning the flag football championship. " One of the most anticipated activities was Battle of the Beef. Delta Chi and Alpha Kappa Lamda tied the tug-of-war for the fraternities and Delta Zeta won for the sororities. But traditional sports were not the only game in town. Newer sport hybrids like walleyball, which was played with a volleyball and volleyball net on a racquetball court, came into vogue over the last few years and provided a contrast to the more well-known sports. Several new activities were added to the list of intramural athletic events and activi- ties including table tennis, H-O-R-S-E bas- ketball shooting contests and a water carni- val. Along with traditional sports and the new hybrids, intramural activities like shooting a basketball and kicking a football were added in an effort to get back-to- basics. According to Lade, the changes had good effect on the intramurals. " This year we brought back a couple of activities that we hadn ' t had for several years like the field-goal kicking contest and the one-on-one basketball tournament, " Lade said. However, regardless of the activity, whoever participated in intramural athletics could not deny the feeling of comraderie they shared which was forged in the heat of battle. Matt Marquez, member of volleyball fraternity division champion Sigma Phi Epsilon, said standing side by side with his teammates in competition, defined closeness. " When we played, the closeness was something that formed a real bond between us, " Marquez said. " It really helped knowing the other guys were all behind me. " The intramural athletics gave students a chance to compete and have fun. They may not have won the game but they all walked away with that winning feeling.

By Julie Sharp and Amy Duggan nakes, lizards and waterdogs were usually found in nature, but for some students, they were the perfect pets. Mike Ditamore had a 3 1 2 foot iguana for three years and received his white albino rat, Lydia, from the biology department. " They were very neat and quiet, " Ditamore said. " They had personality. " Roommates Tonya Branscum and Aimee Wilke also had unique pets, a pair of waterdogs. " I was driving down Main Street and saw a sign ' Water Dogs for Sale ' so I stopped and bought two, " Branscum said. " They were cute. I had never had a pet before and they were unique. " Branscum said that she had never talked with Wilke about having a pet before. Her roommate was shocked when Branscum arrived home with the waterdogs. " Tanya came home with the water dogs, " Wilke said. " I did not know a thing about it. " Ditamore felt his pets were easier to care for than " normal pets. " " They were relatively inexpensive to take care of and they didn ' t require a lot of work, " Ditamore said.

Suddenly, he began to plunge toward the earth at a frightening speed. TTie ground got closer and closer as his life Hashed before his eyes. Just as he convinced himself that his life was coming to an end in another 20 feet, he felt a strong force pulling him upward. The bungee cord saved him from instantaneous death by mere feet, and as he was pulled back up he asked, " Can I do it again? " Whether it was bungee jumping or cliff diving, several students found excitement in dangerous encounters. They came face to face with fear and laughed. They were daredevils. " When I was at Breckenridge last year, Ijumped out of a helicopter with my skis on and skied down a mountain, " Bryan Smith said. " I had seen it on television, and it looked like fun.

" Ijumped about 1 8 feet off a house this summer because I was enraged at the world, " Matt Mallen said. " I didn ' t really think twice about it because I felt like I let go of everything that had been balled up inside of me by jumping. " Others crossed danger ' s path purely by accident. " Some of my friends and I went home late one night, even though my parents were not expecting me, " Jane Joens said. " We left after I went around back and realized they were already in bed, but a mile down the road we got blocked in by police cars and interrogated at gun point because my mom had thought we were robbers. " Many felt the courage to carry out a death-defying feat came from the adrenaline rush they received from the experience. " All I could think about before 1 jumped was, why am I doing this? " Smith said. " I didn ' t know why, but I just jumped, and I didn ' t regret it because it was really cool. " Many felt a sense of accomplishment after they completed a thrilling task. They had taken the risk and lived through it. However, when it all came down to the bottom line, only one thing crossed a daredevil ' s mind — no fear. Scott Tefft, Biology Chek Tan.

By Jami Fangmeyer J. or some, it was nice to have a sibling around who attended the same college, while others questioned the bond of whether one could pull through without the other. For Judy Harris, having an older sibling at Northwest helped make the transition to college life much easier. " It was nice to have someone there to fall back on. " Harris said. " If I ever got in a bind or needed someone to talk to, 1 could always count on her. " Since both Judy and her sister, Rosetta, were education majors, Judy often asked her sister ' s advice on what professors to lake for each major class. " We didn ' t have any classes together, " Judy said. " She had been through all my classes already and could tell me what to expect.

They said they always tried to make time to talk at 1( once a day. " Being involved in different activities made it difficult to get togetl but somehow we managed to do it, " Laura said. " We tended to help c other out a lot with laundry and things like that. " Gerry and Paul Nevins were a brother team who attended Northv together. Gerry said that because both he and his brother were the majors and had similar scholastic interests, it was great to spend a lo time together. According to Gerry, the brothers tended to help each other out v homework, and for them it made it a lot easier to stay on track and on of their studies. The brothers shared a room in Dieterich Hall which they also saw ; plus. " I had been around my brother so long, I knew what to expect, anc knew what to expect from me, " Gerry said. " It was good to have had fan around. " One disadvantage the brothers faced by living in the same room was i they did not get the opportunity to have a new roommate. " Because I lived with my brother, I did not get the chance to meet r people by having a roommate, " Paul said. Paul also mentioned that it was difficult to meet the standards they for each other. " If he made a grade, my parents expected me to meet it, " Paul saic The brothers said although they rarely fought at home before comin college, they still occasionally had their misunderstandings. For Jesse Vehe, having her older sister, Shawn, at Northwest was advantage, but it also tended to take away some of the freedoms associj with college life. " Sometimes it was like having a mom around all the time, " Jesse s; " Shawn watches over me a lot. " Most siblings agreed that they still occasionally fought as they di( home. " We still got on each other ' s nerves occasionally, " Laura said. Some sibling teams came to Northwest because of the educatic opportunities or because one did not want to go out on his or her owi With another family member to lean on it made the transition to coll life easier. They also had to endure the negative side of having a loved on campus. However, most siblings enjoyed attending college togei and helping each other.

Students who found themselves sick a from Dr. Mom often struggled to fight their way back to health. For many students, getting sick during the school year was not an ex they used, but something they could have done without. Dave DiMartino received an unexpected case of bronchiial asthma was bedridden for four days. During that time, his girlfriend, Sarah Ha remained by his side. " She helped remind me to take my pills and she made me chicken no soup. " DiMartino said. " Without her, I was not sure that I would have 1 able to recover as fast as I did. " Soon after his diagnosis, DiMartino was taken to St. Francis hos where they put him on a bronchial inhaler. His visit cleared his air pass and enabled him to attend classes again. Jane Riggan missed classes because she contracted hives fron allergic reaction to a medication for strep throat. " I laid around a little, but my schedule didn ' t permit it much, " Rij said. " I was the president of Sigma Alpha so I had to keep active. " Another situation in which students had to stay home from .school injuries which required surgery. For Melinda Rice, having surgery or shoulder did not enable her to be as active in the classroom as she accustomed to. After having surgery in August, Rice was required to a strap that held her arm next to her body until September. " It made some things difficult, " Rice said. " But the important thing that I was able to continue my scholastics. " Although there was never a good time to be sick, one of the worst ti to be ill was during semester finals. Jennifer Baker found that in ord( maintain her grades, she had to rest and drink a lot of fluids so she c( keep her strength up.

By Cynthia Hansen M anaging money while attending college was not an easy task for some students. From buying groceries to paying the water bill and rent, some had trouble balancing their budgets and making ends meet. " I knew what bills came when and those bills were paid, " Kimberly Billingsly said. " Then, I left money out to split with my roommate for the phone and food. " Deciding what to pay first sometimes was a challenge, but usually the most expensive bill was first. " My most expensive bill was rent, " Billingsly said. " It was around $300 a month but split with my roommate, it only came to $150 a month which helped. " Billingsly had developed a system on how not to forget which bills were to be paid when. " I paid my bills right away, " Billingsly said. " In fact, when I knew a bill was coming up I wrote out the check, took that amount off my balance and then put the check somewhere that I would not forget to pay it.

But for ■me, a college education included living at home and going to school in the me town.

Despite this, she believed remaining in her hometown while attending college gave her certain benefits. " It was easier to meet new people rather than on campus, " Dorrel said. Others disagreed and felt that moving on campus could prove advanta- geous when making friends. Matt Hazen believed he missed out on a lot by not living on campus. " I missed out on meeting new people because I worked and I was not involved in anything on campus, " Hazen said. " Living in the dorms would have given me a better opportunity to get involved. " According to Maggie O ' Riley, she decided to stay in Maryville and attend Northwest because she liked the size of the school. " It was small enough that I always saw someone who I knew but it was also big enough that I could have met someone new, " O ' Riley said. Sometimes to avoid that homesick feeling, students stayed home, espe- cially when they remained busy at school. During her first year of school, O ' Riley lived at home with her parents. " It really wasn ' t too bad, " O " Riley said. " I had a lot of friends who lived on campus, so Ijust visited them. I was busy enough that I wasn ' t home that often. Home was just sort of a place to stay. " Because her parents realized that she could have attended college farther away, they did not hassle her. O ' Riley believed that her parents would always play a big role in her life whether she attended college in her hometown or far away. " If I lived away at school, I would have had a huge phone bill, " O ' Riley said. " My parents were really important people and I admired them both because they were always there for me whether I was in town or not. " O ' Riley said another advantage of attending college in her hometown was her parents were there for her when she was in a bind. " If I was running out of time or if I really needed something I could have called Mom or Dad and said, ' could you please do this? ' " O ' Riley said. " They could always do it because they were right there. " Even though O ' Riley said she made the right choice by attending Northwest, she said one disadvantage was that she did not get the experience of being on her own. Most students looked forward to getting away from their parents while attending college. However, some students discovered there was no place like home.

By Kelly Kepler longing for family, friends and home Hiking brought forth a condition among col- ge students known as homesickness. ■ ' I couldn ' t go home at all the first month and half of school because my sorority had closed eek ends, " Jen Hallberg said. " It was tough •cause I really missed my family. " Many students were not able to go home until lanksgiving, and some even had to wait until tiristmas to see their families because they ed far away. " I missed Virginia because we lived right on e water and being in the Midwest was a lot fferent, " Becky Minton said. " I also missed iving my own washer and dryer. " Home cooking was a frequent factor that con- buted to students missing home. " My family always cooked breakfast every oming, " Jamey Boelhower said. " Waking up the smell of food cooking was nice, and I issed it. " Adapting to Mary ville was difficult for some students who were from larger communities. " Maryville was a really rural area, and I was used to a big city, " Angel Harris-Lewis said. " I missed always having places to go and lots of people around. " The only cure for homesickness may have been to go home; however, students tried to make Maryville more homelike. They often hung souvenirs and mementos of family mem- bers on their walls. Despite such cures, homesick freshmen often found it tough to make the adjustment to college life. " I just had to keep active because if I didn ' t slow down, I didn ' t have as much time to think about it, " Minton said. Most students suffered from homesickness, but their loss lessened with time. They contin- ued to miss their families and friends, but began to make a home in Maryville. Jamey Boelhower talks to his parents on the phone. Maryville became a second home for many students. Photo by Chris Tucker.

By Kathy Rives and Ruby Dittmer he water rippled and the weeping willows danced in the light summer breeze. Students napped, talked or read along the water ' s edge. Colden Pond was often a place of escape for students. Colden Pond was used by students for many reasons. In the spring and fall, people could be seen reading books, flying kites, playing Frisbee, doing aerobics or just kicking back and relaxing by the pond. Shelly Branstetter studied frequently by Colden Pond. She chose this spot because it was very peaceful and relaxing. " Colden Pond had such a beautiful view on warm and sunny days, " Branstetter said. " It was easier for me to study. Plus, I enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. After a long and stressful day, relaxing by Colden was great on the nerves. " During the winter months, Colden Pond was transformed into an ice rink. Ray Dinkins, president of the Rollerhockey Club, helped con- vince the campus to open Colden Pond for ice skating. " A long time ago, ice skating on Colden Pond was a huge community event, " Dinkins said. " They used to have a bonfire and then everyone would go ice skating. " While ice skating caused safety concerns in the past, recent decisions changed the rule. " They quit allowing ice skating 15 years ago due to the liability involved, " Randy Willis, head of Ground Services, said. " Our winters were not too hard and we were concerned with people falling through, however, we recently decided to allow skating again. " Willis was in charge of keeping the water clean and free of algae. An aerator was installed in the pond to circulate the water and keep it clear. According to Willis, the pond had to be at least 5 or 6 feet deep in order to remain clean. The average depth was around 10 feet. The area around it was a place for fun and games as well. Eric Schuster and his friends used the area around Colden Pond to play Friz, a game played on mountain bikes which involved a Frisbee, because it made a good playing field for the game. " It was a good fiat surface to ride our bikes on and play Friz, " Schuster said. " We were a bunch of showof fs and the area was a place where people could watch us. " The Outdoor Recreation Class used the pond for class meetings. Class member Laurie Miller enjoyed the change from having class indoors to outdoors.

By Ruby Dittmer O he originally went to the mall to buy a birthday card. Two hours later, the birthday card was long forgotten as she left the mall with her arms full of bags from the GAP. For Cailey Auxier, this was often how her shopping adventures began. Although Auxier admitted she shopped frequently, she knew how to budget her money. " 1 was pretty good about budgeting myself, " Auxier said. " I knew what my limit was and if I did not think that I could have afforded it, [ would just go out with say $50 and leave my checkbook at home. " Shopping helped Auxier to forget about her problems. " Usually, I shopped with my mom or my friends, and it just got my mind off of whatever was bothering me, " Auxier said. " It was relaxing and I always had fun doing it. " Auxier said she usually shopped for clothes, except when she was depressed. " When I was depressed, I ' d shop for make-up and stuff and I put it on and felt better about myself, " Auxier said. " I think that I shopped a lot, but I did not think that I was out of control. I could tell myself when to stop. " Lia Ruiz ' s friends told her she was a shopaholic. " My friends thought that I shopped a lot and bought things that I did not need, " Ruiz said. " But I did not believe that I was a shopaholic. " Ruiz said her downfall was that she loved to buy greeting cards. " Hallmark was my favorite store, " Ruiz said. " Because I was from Mexico, I always would send cards to my friends and family back tiome. " Anthony Antognoli said that when he had money, he shopped. " I went shopping because I wanted something, " Antognoli said. " I liked to shop for clothes. " Most serious shoppers left Mary ville and headed to either St. Joseph Mo., or Kansas City, Mo. According to Auxier, Maryville did not have anywhere to shop. " I was originally from St. Joseph and preferred to shop in Kansas City, and Maryville did not even compare, " Auxier said. While some students admitted they loved to shop, others denied the desire. Like Auxier, who admitted a simple errand to a bookstore could have taken her hours, students and shopping went hand in hand. Cailey Auxier makes her selections at J C Penney ' s.

Simpson in the trial of the century, an earthquake shook Kobe, Japan. The earthquake which registered 7.2 on the Richter scale and lasted only 20 sec- onds was the deadliest quake in Japan since 1923. I Major League Baseball players went on strike cancelling the 1994 season and the World Series, while owners began recruiting replacement players for the ' 95 season. Locally, the Mandarin Chinese restaurant prospered by the Show-Me Inn while the Maryville Free Press newspaper closed its doors for good. It seemed no matter what the conflict, it always happened . . . when we least expected it. N iX yh O.J. Absorbs Media Sports Hero Charged With Double Murder |hite Ford Broncos would never be seen the same way again. In July, images of the Bronco carrying a suicidal Hall of Fame football star being slowly pursued by a carnival of police cars flashed on screens across America. The image was joined by a question: Was former-Buffalo Bills starO.J. Simpson guilty ofmurderinghisex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman? What started out as a harrowing tale of a double murder turned into a media blitz as the Simpsons hit the front pages of tabloids, newspapers and books; flashed on the television screen and were on the lips of anyone with an audience or microphone. Details of O.J. and Nicole ' s private life became public domain. Nicole had met the sports star in 1 977 while she was a waitress, moved in with him a year later, got married in 1985, had a son named Justin and a daughter named Sydney and filed for divorce in 1992 on grounds of spousal abuse. Within the convoluted personal trials, the legal trial was supposed to go on for months. Over a hundred witnesses were called on by the prosecution and defense and the promise of a second trial if the verdict was not what the prosecution thought was fair Tabloids covered the events weekly. Between June and January, the " National Enquirer " had only one cover without any mention of the Simpson scandal. " Legitimate " newspapers, such as the New York Times and USA. Nicole Brown Simpson and O J. Simpson are shown in liappier times. The former Buffalo Bills defense player was accused of killing his ex-wife and her friend. The Associated Press photo. Today, covered the story with equal fervor. Nearly every day, there w, a new headline or angle to the story. The Kansas City Star did a full-p t story on the ice cream Nicole was eating moments before she died. The media set up what CNN described as an " O.J. City " outside ; courtroom, with lights, cameras and scaffolds. The prosecution .d defense teams fed them with sound bites. It got so bad that the Chief Jmi; Lance Ito had to ask the defense to stop making noise because the hub) ii had become so bad. ABC, NBC, CBS, Court television and CNN aired hourly reports in s beginning as the initial events unfolded. Regular programming was 1 stopped. ABC got so many complaints about people missing the s( ) operas that it aired its regularly scheduled programming. The program ; got such low ratings that the next day they were back to providing 0. A movie which detailed the events leading up to the trial was aired i Fox television, following in the tradition of such TV quickies as the duel ; Menendez movies on NBC and Fox and the three Amy Fisher movies Besides television and newspapers, instant books based on O.J. ; 1 Nicole Simpson ' s lives hit the newsstand and climbed the bestseller chai . Although many of the books told Nicole ' s side of the story includi; Sheila Weller ' s " Raging Heart, " O.J. released a book telling his side cal 1 " I Want To Tell You. " It was done in response to the thousands supportive letters he had received since his incarceration. Even O.J. ' s entertainment projects gained new prominence. The PI; boy exercise video, " Minimum Maintenance Fitness of Man " becam. video best seller and was requested by 37 news organizations. O.J. was not the only one getting media coverage. Ito was sho soaking in a hot tub in " People " magazine and A.C. Cawlings got his o " 1-900 " number. In a poll of 504 people done by " Entertainment Weekly " and " U. Today, " 78 percent of whites said there was too much O.J. on televisi compared to 67 percent of blacks. Daily ratings for the networks and CNN had reached record highs. 1 ratings for CNN have increased seven-fold. Student Richard Heitman said the media went overboard in th coverage. " The media had way too much coverage, " Heitman said. " I guess it v because he was such a celebrity. " Fred Lamer said ratings were the key to the amount of coverage. " It was mostly about business, " Lamer said. " Ratings went through i roof. The audience wanted O.J. and the networks gave it to them. 1 media was feeding that. If people weren ' t watching, I would bet it would be on the air. " Lamer said the decisions and revelations towards the end of the tr could marked the highest ratings of the trial. By the end of the year, O.J. had become almost as much a staple Americans as orange juice.

' s iroperty, heard three loud thumps outside the guesthouse and went out to check for he source of the loud noise at 1 1 p.m. • Meanwhile, O.J. was seen coming out of his house at 1 1 : 10 p.m. to a waiting imosine, saying that he had overslept. He arrived at the airport at 1 1 :35 p.m. to atch a plane to Chicago. • At midnight, Nicole ' s dog led her neighbors, Sukru Boztepe and his wife, iettina Rasmussen, to the slain bodies of Nicole and Goldman on the front steps if Nicole ' s condominium. • Nicole was found in the fetal position with several stab wounds and her throat lashed. Goldman ' s body had been stabbed repeatedly and there were signs of a lolent struggle. • The first detectives did not arrive at the house until 4:05 a.m. while O.J. ' s lane landed in Chicago. Upon waking Kaelin at his guesthouse, Los Angeles oliceman Mark Fuhrman discovered a bloody glove. • At 6:30 a.m., O.J. heard about the deaths and allegedly cut his hand when he lammed down a wine glass in the shock of the news. • He rushed from his hotel room and demanded a cab to the airport. He caught [le first flight to Los Angeles and, ignoring his lawyers ' warnings to keep silent, vas taken in for questioning and answered questions for three hours. • After examining the evidence later that day, the police called O.J. to turn imself in willingly. A panicked and reportedly suicidal. Simpson fled in his white ■ord Bronco, driven by friend, A.C. Cawlings, down a Los Angeles interstate. The ports star allegedly had a gun to his head that he said he would use it if the police lade any attempt to stop him. The 45 mph chase was aired live by every national and local network in the country. • Within hours of the killings, evidence had already begun stacking up against O.J. Blood was found at the crime scene near bloody footprints which were leading away from die bodies of the victims. DNA tests proved two drops matched Simpson ' s blood. • Human hairs were found in a dark knit cap and on Goldman ' s clothing resembling those of a black person. • A neighbor found the other bloody glove the morning after the murders which matched the blood found inside the Bronco and on the carpet. DNA tests showed that a small spot of blood found near the driver ' s side of the Bronco matched at least one of the victims. • At the pre-trial hearing in September, prosecutor Marcia Clark proved there was enough evidence for the case to go to trial despite allegations from the defense team that the L. A. police, coroner and crime lab technicians botched the gathering and analyzing of evidence. • Simpson ' s defense team included high profile lawyers such as Robert Shapiro, Johnnie Cochran Jr., Gerald Uelman and F. Lee Bailey. Shapiro lead pre- trial maneuvering, but Cochran took over when the case went to trial. • In January, Clark and Cochran gave their opening statements, although Cochran ' s statements were interrupted by a camera that gave a glimpse of a juror for a second. Ito stopf)ed media coverage, but Simpson ' s side was upset that they would not be able to tell their side of the story to millions of people like the prosecution and been allowed to. Ito relented and one camera was allowed in the courtroom to tape the events. • The trial began with Clark ' s summary of the murders while Cochran began with a look at Simpson ' s scars in an effort to show he could not have committed the murders. • The defense and prosecution tried to discredit witnesses brought to the stand. Mark Fuhrman, a prosecution trump card, was heard expressing racists comments and tampering with the evidence and the Simpson ' s maidnamed Rosa Lopez, a defense card, was caught in lies. he 9{prtlnvest ' J oundation The 9(pTthwest Joundation is (ocatedin tfk fUstoric Akmni Jiouse.

While October was usually orgia ' s driest months, the oding decreased farmers hopes the best harvest in 25 years, ;ording to USA Today. About 200 homes and business in Savannah were flooded, causing more than 300 people to find shel- ter. In Charleston, S.C, homes, roads and schools closed as the state exceeded its record of flooding that hit the state earlier in July. Snow Just when the worst of winter had passed, a blizzard blew into the East Coast area. According to The Kansas City Star, the snow fell an average of 2 to 3 inches an hour in Connecticut and left approimately 9,000 residents without power. Also in New York City, 3,000 workers, 1 ,300 plows and 350 salt- and-sand trucks were out nonstop. January of 1995 brought snow and low temperatures throughout the country, and ice storms hit Washington, D.C. The beginning of February brought dangerous snow storms to the Midwest. Four inches of snow piled on Illinois and Indiana at speeds of 40 mph. Two days later, though snow still remained, it moved to the East where it contin- ued to spread across the nation. Tornado Palm Sunday brought anything but praises for members of the Goshen United Methodist Church when a tornado destroyed the Piedmont, Ala. church. According to USA Today, 200 parishioners survived the tornado and 20 were killed 6 of whom were children. Ninety were injured and approximately 75 were able to get to the basement. The twister had been the worst tornado since No- vember of 1 992. Forest fires The month of July was a time of disaster for the the area west of Glenwood Springs, Colo. According to American Forests, a forest fire began on a ridge parallel to two canyons. The fire was a result of a year of drought, low humidity and high temperatures. This dry lightning fire eventually caused 40 more fires in the Grand Junction District in Colorado. On July 6, after a crew had been working on the fire, a dry cold front moved into the fire, causing the fires to rise. The flames reached 100-foot and spread rapidly. After only a few seconds, it ran uphill near the firefighters. Twelve firefighter died as a result. Two crew members on the northwest side also died when the fire spread Fireflghters help to put out fires. Three billion acres were damaged in the West. The Associated Press photo.

Thirty-five firefighters survived after escaping to safety areas. Earthquakes In early November, an earthquake in Seattle, Wash, measured 5 .0 on the Richter scale. It was the strongest quake to hit Puget Sound in 30 years that caused no serious damage or injuries. Stricking at 7:1 1 p.m., it shattered windows, knocked groceries off shelves and cracked the walls of two fire stations in Tacoma, Wash. The quake was felt as far as Canada and as far south as Salem, Ore. It was based 10 miles south of Seattle. National Disasters • 293 Sl t yh GOP Landslide Gingrich Assumes Role of Speaker hange echoed throughout the nation as the Republican Party seized control of Congress for the first time in 40 years. Republicans gained nine seats in the Senate to take a slim 53-47 majority. Their gains in the House were more significant, winning 52 previously Democrat-held seats. One shock was the ousting of the sitting Speaker of the House, Tom Foley, D-Califomia. This was the first time since the Civil War that a sitting Speaker was not re-elected. The country voted almost solid Republican, voting in rock singer Sonny Bono, R- Califomia, to the House of Representatives. Steve Largent, former football great, R- Oklahoma, was voted into the House as well. Newt Gingrich, R-Georgia, a virtual unknown to the nation, became well-known over night after becoming Speaker of the House. On the opening day of Congress, the new party passed congressional reform to make Congress accountable for the same laws as citizens were. They also changed some rules in House of Representatives that required a 60 percent super majority to increase taxes. The Senate also passed congressional accountability. Gingrich and other Republicans had unveiled a " Contract With America " prior to the election. The contract outlined their plans for the future if they were put into power. The contract included a crime bill designed to put limits on death penalty appeals, put more money into prisons and law enforcement, and reduce preventative programs and gun control. The bill also included a reduction of appeals after a criminal was convicted. This bill was passed by the House. Among other things in the contract was a bill to stop congress from putting mandates on states without the money to carry them out. The contract also included a tax break of $500 per child. One of the most bipartisan issues was the line-item veto for the president. That bill was intended to stop wasteful spending by allowing the president to put a line through anything he did not like. This bill was easily passed in the House. The empowerment of the Republican party received mixed reactions from students. " It was about time, " Sonja Erichsen said. " They really dug in right in the beginning and tried to get things done and even worked with the Democrats. " Although Republicans took the election as a sign to move the coun- try to the right, some students did not think it would work out. " It had a negative impact, " Brian Cummings said. " They wanted to cut spending for the most useful programs and they wanted to spend more than they took in. " Whether or not people were lib- eral or conservative, most agreed that the ' 94 election had a resound- ing theme of change. What could not be agreed upon was whether that change would be beneficial or harmful to the nation.

The 83-year-old former president hoped that by announcing his illness, others would have educated themselves about Alzheimer ' s. Alzheimer ' s disease had killed his tnolher at ihe age of 77. Friends of Reagans were not surprised by the announcement because they had heard rumors for months. Jimmy Carter A Southern-Democrat who served one tenn as president. Jimmy Carter captured the spotlight once more as he made treaties with Haiti and was :alled upon to save baseball. Clinton asked the former president to help the Haitians come to an agreement in which the :urrent military leaders would step down in exchange for their bank accounts being unfl M| jen. Clinton also called upon Carter to mediate the talks between the baseball players and owners. Carter was once again thrusted into the media spotlight to save the game just days before spring training was to begin. Although he left office in 1980, Carter re- gained the spotlight 14 years later. Subway Incidents Subways hit the headlines as tales of murder md mayhem hit the newspapers.

All five members of their son ' s family were on board that flight in which all 127 passengers and five crew members were killed. Families across the country faced similar tragedies as four US Air and American Eagle flights crashed in 1994, killing a total of 252 people. On July 2, a US Air DC-9 crashed in a thunderstorm near the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in North Carolina, leaving 37 people dead. Wind shear was thought to be the cause of the crash. Weather made an impact in another plane crash as well. All 68 people on board American Eagle Flight 4 1 84 died when it rolled upside down in a rainstorm and fell into a soybean field in northwest Indiana. This crash was believed to have been caused by ice on the wings. The crash occurred on Nov. 1. Fifteen people died when an American Eagle Jetstream 3200 crashed near Raleigh - Durham, N.C. on Dec. 13. An Aeroflot jet made an emergency landing in Arkhangel ' sk, Russia, after the crew substituted lemonade for missing hydraulic fluid in the system that lowered the landing gear. Becky Bennett said the number of plane crashes in the past year would make her look more closely at an airline before she decided to fly on it. " I would probably look for (an airline) that had a better record for staying in the air, " Bennet said. All of the American Eagle flights that crashed were commuter or regional planes, and many critics of air safety had pointed out that safety standards were lower for commuter airlines, despite the fact that these smaller, lighter planes did not have the same structural strength of big jets. An airplane carrying Grand Canyon tourists lost an engine and crashed, killing seven tourists and one pilot. This was the fourth crash that planes of Las Vegas Airlines suffered since 1 980. The crashes resulted in 23 deaths all together. The previous three crashes were caused by pilot errors. Kansas City International Airport experienced two crashes within a few months. In one, a plane arriving from Sedalia, Mo. went down just short of runway I. Three months later on Feb. 16, on the same runway, the tail of an cargo plane scraped the runway during takeoff and exploded on impact, killing three crew members immediately. The crash caused the airport to shut down for 40 minutes. Although there was a large number of commuter and commercial air- line crashes, most critics ad- mitted people were at a great- er risk getting into a car than into an airplane.

Two little boys had disappeared without a trace overnight. Their mother, Susan Smith, told police that they had been abducted in a carjacking. The town and the nation rallied to search for Michael Smith, 3, and his brother Alex, 14 months. Smith appeared on television many times pleading for the safe return of her children. For many, they were the picture of the loving family and presented a heartbreaking look at a family ' s loss of so much. " I didn ' t think that any parent could love their children more than 1 did, " Smith said in Newsweek. Two weeks later, the country learned the startling truth: Smith had rolled her car into a nearby lake with her children still strapped in the back seat. " I was totally shocked, " Trisha Marshall said. " I thought being a mother — how could you do that to your own children? " Other people, however, were not stunned by Smith ' s confession. " I wasn ' tsurprised. " Holly Baker said. " Her storyjust didn ' t match. " The story that Smith told authorities and the nation had some discrepancies. She had claimed that a man with a gun entered her car while she was stopped at a deserted intersection. Smith said the gunman, who was on foot, ordered her to drive and then forced her out of the car in front of a house. The man said that he did not have time to release her children. Smith claimed. Local authorities found several holes in Smith ' s story. The stoplight at the intersection was controlled by oncoming traffic. The light would remain green unless a car approached on the other road. Because she claimed the intersection was deserted, the stoplight should not have been triggered. Smith confessed to the crime on the morning of Nov. 10. In her confession she revealed what really had happened to her sons. She detailed how she waited until her children were asleep in their car seats and then drove to a pier. There, she closed all of the windows and stepped out, letting the car continued to roll into water. It floated nearly 1 00 feet from the pier before it flipped over and sank while Smith stood on the shore watching. Around 4: 1 5 p.m. of the day of Smith ' s confession, her car was found at the bottom of the lake by divers. Smith was charged with the murders two and a half hours later. Smith ' s lawyer claimed she was " heartbroken " over the events. Citing financial and relationship problems, Smith claimed that the drownings had been part of a suicide attempt. Some students said there was no doubt she was insane. " She was insane; it was temporary insanity, " Julie Johnson said. " But I still thought that she should have gone to jail for the rest of her life. " The Smith case was expected to come to trial sometime in the middle of " 95 for her sentencing.

However, this came as no surprise to faithful followers of our national pastime. " I knew it was going to happen, because they were greedy, " Paul Kemna said. ' They wanted larger and larger salaries just for playing a game. They didn ' t deserve the salaries they were demanding. " Talks between representatives of the Major League Baseball Players ' Association union and the teams ' owners, on a new collective bargaining agreement, had proved to be inconclusive prior to the announced strike date. The talks had been set to assist in the replacement of the four-year agreement on collective bargaining, which had expired at the end of the 1993 season. However, major problems surfaced because of the players ' refusal to consider any at- tempts by the owners to im- pose a salary cap on teams ' overall salaries. For players, a salary cap meant major league clubs could only spend a certain amount of money on its players. Players who demanded more than a team could pay them, could, in the players ' words, force them to accept a pay cut, thereby dimin- ishing their value and earn- ing power. A total of 669 games had been lost to the strike and threatened the 1995 base- ball season. Under the owners ' plan, the owners would give the players 50 perce of what the 28 major league teams ' collected in revenues, which woi establish a minimum and maximum payroll. Although the total a te£ could spend on its players would have no restriction, a teams ' total payr would be specified. Under the free-market system the players wanted to keep, playe received 58 percent of the revenues. The players also rejected the ownei proposal of revenue-sharing between every team, arguing their salari would be lowered as a result and the free-agent system which they labor for in previous strikes. Other major issues dividing owners and players were free-agenc minimum salaries and salary arbitration. After nearly two months of unsuccessful meetings, the Clinton admi istration decided to get involved to resolve baseball ' s labor dispute. On Oct. 14, Secretary of Labor Robert Reich appointed William Use as special mediator to help the players and owners negotiate a settleme to the neverending strike. However, by February, despite Usery ' s help, the players and ownj broke off all talks between each other forcing President Clinton to ask t U.S. Congress to order binding arbitration. With no outward signs of haste on the part of Congress to appro binding arbitration, and with the players still out on strike, owners decid to open spring training camps in Florida and Arizona with replaceme players, much to the chagrin of managers and players, alike.

Hockey Lockout New York Ranger ' s fans who anxiously awaited the start of the team ' s defense of the Stanley Cup had to wait three months longer than they thought. The hockey season was delayed because of a lockout between the owners and players. National Hockey League commissioner Gary Beltman called a lockout to halt the season before it got started because of issues concerning the owners and players. These issues had to be agreed on before the season could start. Player representative Bob Goodenow discussed with the owners issues that included salary arbitration, a salary cap, the entry draft, free agency and rookie salaries. The owners were most concerned with cutting back on the player ' s salaries. The season was supposed to start on Oct. 1 , which it did not, and the owners and players could not agree on anything until January. They eventually hammered out a six-year deal that gave the owners some restrictions on the eligibility of free agents. The players, however, did manage to get the salary cap idea voted down. As a result of the intense negotiations, the 103-day strike shortened the 1995 season to 48 games. 302 • Mini-Mag ¥fha4 s so GREAT about Northwest?

Early February became a moment in history when Russia ' s space station, Mir, came within 37 feet of the U.S. shuttle. Discovery for the first time in 20 years. This was the first time the United States and Russia had come so close to each other since the 1975 Apollo-Soyuz docking. " We were bringing our spaceships closer together, we were bringing our nations closer together, " Discovery ' s commander, James Wetherbee, said at the moment the two approached. One of the shuttle pilots that was aboard this flight was the first female shuttle pilot, Eileen Collins. Another new venture for this Discovery flight was made by two shuttle astronauts, Michael Foale and Bernard Harris. The two astro- nauts spent 4 1 2 hours in an open cargo bay and 30 minutes outside where temperatures reached as low as minus 1 25 degrees Fahrenheit. " It was like putting my fingers in that liquid nitrogen freezer we have (at NASA), " Foale said in USA Today. Harris was also the first African- American to walk in space. Astronauts Mark Lee and Carl Meade became a part of the first untethered spacewalk in 10 years. Another moment in space was when the space shuttle Endeavor rocket spent 151 2 days in space, making it the longest flight in history. Each flight that the United States endeavored held its own impor- tance for the progression of space in the future.

" It was set to collide over a period of 7 days centered on July 16. " Stephens traveled to Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico where there was less humidity in the air. While in the states, Stephens recorded the impacts the comet had on the planet on video through a telescope. Stephens first presented a slide show on the Macintosh computer and information on the Hubble Space Telescope to the Board of Regents. This was the first time that people had a chance to see what could happen if a comet of similar size were to strike Earth.

Astronomers believed the dust sent up from the collision between the planet ' s surface and the comet may eventually form a ring around Jupiter. It would be the second known ring around the planet for more than 1,000 years. Because of the comet ' s collision, many telescopes were pointed to- ward Jupiter to see how the comet will effect the planet in years to come.

Devastating Quake Tremor Shakes Japan I apan was the target of Mother Nature ' s vengeance when she struck the city of Kobe with a devastating earthquake. The earthquake which measured 7.2 on the Richter scale and lasted only 20 seconds was Japan ' s strongest and most deadly quake since 1923 when a quake hit Tokyo and measured 7.9 on the Richter scale. The city of Kobe, which was the sixth largest city in Japan, was a major economic epicenter with computer companies, breweries and automobile parts factories located there. It also had a population of 1 .5 million and was hit hard with over 4,000 dead and over 2 1 ,000 injured. The death toll and injuries could have been greater had the quake not occurred at dawn, when many people were not out or even awake. The city, which was dark and contained thirsty and hungry citizens, lost an estimated 30,000 buildings to the quake which struck on Jan. 17. There were over 275,000 people without homes, as more than a million homes had been destroyed. " I got a call from a friend who lived in Kobe, " Kuri Yamashita said. " His home was demolished but he was fine. He was originally from Chicago and he was there teaching English. He got a new apartment and new furniture. He was fine but there were still a lot of people living there without homes. " There was a temporary fix for the homeless problem with high schools and the city ward becoming shelters. The city ward building was crowded with hundreds of people " crammed side by side which left only a narrow path for walking, " said Nicholas D. Kristof, writer for the New York Times and the building was cold and smelly because of no running water or electricity in the town. The lines for the water trucks were extremely long when they had finally arrived but they remained orderly. There was also a shortage of food in the area with citizens eating only once a day while waiting for supplies to come. The hospitals, which were already crowded with patients from an influenza epidemic which had struck earlier, had to turn away earthquake victims. NHK, the public broadcasting corporation for Japan, reported that patients at the central hospital in Nishinomiya had slept on the floors there. Murano Technical High School was set up as a morgue to house the bodies of quake victims. The price tag for the damage that the earthquake caused was more than $60 billion in losses of buildings and property. The quake de- stroyed several highways and bridges. Although the financial devas- tation from the quake was tre- mendous, the many lives that were lost could never be re- placed, even af- ter Kobe had been rebuilt from the bot- tom up.

The war brought Arab Palestinians into Jordan, causing numerous refugees and a disgruntled relationship on both sides of the Jordan River.

IRA Declares Cease Fire For the first time in 25 years of war, the Irish Republican Army in early September declared a " complete cessation of military operations " in Northern Ireland. According to an article in USA Today, the war dated back to a 1 2th century English invasion. In 1 800, Ireland became a part of the United King- dom and in 1 920, the province was forced to split by the Irish Nationalists. After Ireland left the United Kingdom in 1948, the Catholics wished to be ruled in a nationalistic way; whereas the Protestants wished to remain under British rule. The war officially began in 1969 and had continued ever since. The Catholics celebrated the news, while others believed that the cease fire was just an advancement of the war into a new phase. ' This struggle was not over, " Gerry Adams, head of the IRA ' s political wing, said. ' This struggle was into a new phase. " People remained optimistic as to whether the IRA cease fire would last. However, support from other countries helped to ensure the pro- cess. UIVI BANK MEMBER FDIC America ' s Strongest Barks.

However, after Castro stopped blocking the refugees from leaving Cuba, the United States was overwhelmed by a flood of Cubans attempting to reach U.S. beaches in shaky rafts. A decision was made to begin detaining the refugees at the U.S. naval station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and at Dade County, Florida ' s Krome Detention Camp. President Clinton described Castro ' s new emigration policy as " attempting to export to the U.S. the political and economic crisis he has created in Cuba. " Some in the Cuban-American community began to call for a total blockade of Cuba to hasten Castro ' s downfall. The White House increased pressure on Castro to change his emigration policy by announcing that it would reduce charter flights to Cuba, reduce remittances of CubaBs escape on rafts. The United States allowed at least 20,000 refugees yearly. The Associated Press photo. Cuban-Americans to relatives in Cuba and increase anti-Castro broad casts to Cuba. In September, the U.S. government agreed to allow a minimum ol 20.000 Cuban refugees into the country annually. In return, Casu-c agreed to non-violently stop the raft exodus. Officials said the U.S embargo against Cuba would gradually be lifted. Washington denied citizenship to most of the 30,000 refugees thai were detained in camps at Guantanamo Bay and in Panama in order tc avoid another flood of boat people attempting to enter the counu-y Instead, they must return home and apply for visas. It was estimated that as many as 2 million Cubans would flee if the) could due to the deteriorating economic and political conditions tha existed in that country. " I could not work; there was no electricity, " a literature professor ir Miramar, a middle-class neighborhood in Havana, said. " We wer( cooking with kerosene or charcoal, if we could find it. " In a rare interview with U.S. News and World Report, Castro said he was in favor of economic reform for Cuba, but not broad politica liberalization. " We did not believe we should have done anything that led to chaos or anarchy, because no country could be governed if it was in chaos, ' Castro said.

United States vowed to see ev- erything through the changes in Haiti, even at the cost of casualties among U.S. soldiers and marines on the island. Some officials hinted that the troops would be home by Christmas but Haitian generals had agreed to step down by October 15, making way for the return of exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. After the arrival of troops, more than 14,000 Haitian refugees from the U.S Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, began returning to their homeland. Carter had helped end the hate in Haiti by sending troops. Which was opposite of the reality of the situation. Within hours of the arrival of the American force, a crowbar-weilding policeman chased a young man, hitting him in the back and then turning on a re- porter. Carter ' s agreements won plau- dits worldwide and almost cer- tainly saved lives of many Haitians and probably at least a few U.S. troops. The mission may had be- come considerably more compli- cated with the violence committed by the Haitian authorities against Port-au-Prince residents. Yet the U.S. troops were given the job to control the streets and bring peace. Chechnya Russian troops numbering 40,000 blasted their way through Grozny building by building to keep Chechnya from seceding from the Russian Federation. President Boris Yeltsin tried to keep the war-torn and poverty stricken Russia together. Critics argued that even if Yeltsin suc- ceeded in retaking the Chechnya presidential palace, his image may have been irreplaceably tarnished. Meanwhile, Chechnya contin- ued to be devastated and Russia continued to be weakened. Rwanda A leaderless country ravaged by hunger and war while refugees in Rwanda struggled for survival. The absence of strong leaders had left the country in chaos. Two stron g tribes the Hutu and Tutsi continued their conquests for con- trol of the country. By midsummer, the Tutsi tribe claimed victory and began to set up its own form of government which launched a new wave of refugees. Over 250,000 people had fell victim to genocide, and more than 200,000 had fied to neighboring countries such as Zaire and Tanza- nia for refuge. Orphaned Rwandan children who fled their native land were cared for by French medics. They suffered from cholera, starvation and wounds received while in battle. The future re- mained grim for the citizens of Rwanda, with more bloodshed, depravation and uncertainty.

An Ai ' iny helicopter was shot down last December when it accidently strayed into a demilitarized zone that separated North and South Korea. Chief Warrant Officers Bobby Hall and David Hilemon were the pilots when the incident occurred. Hilemon died in the crash and Hall was taken as a prisoner by North Korean officials who had originally refused to return the body of Hilemon or free Hall. Hilemon was a veteran of the Persian Gulf War and had been a resident of Clarksville, Tenn. His body was returned to the U.S. on Dec. 21, five days after he was killed. Hall remained a hostage for two weeks after the crash, being allowed to return home on New Years Eve. People magazine reported he was greeted with hugs, smiles, ap- plause and tears of joy in his hometown of Brooksville, Fla. While he soaked in his new found freedom, a part of him had still mourned the loss of Hilemon, who was his friend as well as his co-pilot. Hall said he fell guilty because he got to come home and walk across to freedom and Hileman did not. While the war in North and South Korea was over, the Bobby Hall incident was a reminder that violence still lurked under the surface of a battle the United States once waged.

Fay was also imprisoned for ree months in Singapore for his ime. ' When he returned back home to ;iyton, Ohio in June, Fay was [igued with post-traumatic stress ndrome.

In August, he made headlines once again after a kitchen-tloor fight with his 47-year-old father, George, a manufacturing execu- tive. Fay got through these trouble- some times by sniffing butane from a can, a practice he picked up in Singapore. This developed into a full-blown addiction and in September, Fay landed in Hazelden clinic, a well- known drug and alcohol rehabilita- tion facility located in Center City, Minn.

Pope John Paul II He was Time magazine ' s " Man of the Year, " he ascended the record charts in Europe, his book was a number one best sel ler and he continued to bring in thousands when he spoke about God. In his 16lh year as Pontiff, the first non-Italian pope in nearly five centuries, has shown little fear in his dealings with Catholic issues and book deals. Pope John Paul II received death threats, signed a $6 million book deal and protested abortion. Time magazine reported that his attacks on the Cairo conference which advocated abortion to slow the population growth caused the Tablet to report, " Never had the Vatican cared less about being un- popular than under Pope John Paul II. " The death threats stopped the pope from making visits to Beirut and Sarajevo. Still, his word spread throughout the lands as his book entitled " Crossing the Threshold of Hope " was released and became an inter- national bestseller in 35 countries around the world and selling over 1 million copies. The money went to charity. While the book was selling mil- lions of copies, the pope suffered seriously declining health. In 1993, he dislocated his shoul- der and fractured his arm after trip- ping during a speech to his follow- ers. In April, he fell again, not fully recovered from his last fall, and broke his thighbone. His health caused him to cancel his trip to the United States in Sep- tember. Still, despite numerous death threats and ill health. Pope John Paul II made piousness into a prof- itable business.

Tuition Hikes Plague Students Increase Claimed Necessary, But Not Welcome 1 1 was becoming an annual event. For the past four years tuition had been raised. Both in-state and out-of-state students would be paying more money for tuition in the fall of 1995. Undergraduate in-state tuition would raise from $7 1 a credit hour to $76. Out-of-state undergraduate students would pay $132.50 per credit hour instead of $124.50. Graduate students would not be exempt. In-state would be $95 .50 instead of $89 and out-of-state would be $168.50 instead of $158. University president Dean Hubbard said the state funding had decreased regularly over the past few years. Another problem occurred when that money had to be used for cer tain expenses. Students had mixed emotions about the tuition increases. Some believed the defeat of Amendment 7 would have curbed any future increases. " Amendment 7, if passed, threatened to raise tuition, " Michelle Diggs said. " The University led us to believe that if Amendment 7 was defeated, tuition would not rise. In a sense, I believed they betrayed us. " Diggs, like other students, also understood that the money had to come from somewhere. " I guess if the state wasn ' t giving us the money, students would have to pay if we wanted the same quality, " Diggs said. Although the faculty members sympathized with the students, they Millions served. Over the years. McDonalds has helped Americas students through scholarships, jobs and fund drives. And we ' re happy to say our commitments growing, one student at a time. A Ocwld 1 CuporM on believed the increases were necessary so other programs would not h to get cut. " I hated to see the continual increases because it was getting tough students, " Jerry Brekke, associate professor of government, said. Hubbard said that the bulk of student ' s money went into instruction, also said Northwest ' s average for money going to instruction was hig than the national average. Christina Stone, a member of Student Senate, said they discussed tuition issue at length during their meetings. " The genera] campus believed it was a tremendous increase, " Stone si " Personally, I believed that for what I paid at this University, I was gett my money ' s worth. " Stone agreed that every increase hurt students, but the cost of tuition still one of the lowest in the state. Other increases included moving violations, which would be increa from $20 to $40. Students would also be paying more for photocopie: the library. Although tuition increases were not welcomed, they were necessary continue the quality of service at Northwest. In fact, most students reali: the necessity, but did not look forward to paying the extra money.

However, one Friday night in February gave students more than they expected. A quake measuring 3.1 on the Richter scale occurred on Feb. 10 at 1 1:54 p.m. The epicenter was approximately 10 miles north of Maryville. Angelique Quigley. police dispatcher for Maryville Public Safety, said the station was quickly deluged with calls after the tremor. " After midnight, there were several calls and 1 1 the next morning, " Quigley said. " ' A lot of people called in, thinking it was an explosion or some- thing. " Many Northwest students who experienced the quake simply remained where they were because the tremor only lasted for about two seconds and also because of the rarity of the situation. Katie Ryan, Perrin Hall Roberta Hall resident assistant, was walking between Penin and Roberta halls with her fiance when they experienced it. " The doors in Perrin Hall started shaking and when we got to Roberta, the women started asking what was going on, " Ryan said. Jamey Boelhower was playing cards with friends in Franken Hall when he experienced the tremor. " We noticed our cards started shaking and basi- cally we all knew it was an earthquake, " Boelhower said. " It just hit and was over so we all kind of sat there in amazement. " Dr. Charles Frye, associate professor of geology, said the quake resulted from seismic activity in the Nemaha Ridge which ran from eastern Kansas to southwest Iowa. " It was a seismologically active zone, but the earthquakes tended to be under two (on the Richter scale), " said Frye. " I could only find one other quake that was in the three range. On the other hand, 10 to 20 quakes a decade normally occurred along this ridge but nobody felt them. " Frye added that it was unusual for a quake of this magnitude to produce any kind of noticeable dam- age. Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey added that a quake must measure at least 3.5 on the Richter scale before damage occurs. Although the quake did no damage and was not felt by some, it did ensure that everyone had a weekend to remember. By Keith Rydberg Tnfographic courtesy of Chris Chappell. SONIC.

Tuition • 315 Convent proposed as prison site 11 The talk surrounding the possibility of a minimum-to-medium security correctional facility in Maryville raised controversy in the community. On Jan. 26 the Missouri Department of Corrections announced it was considering Maryville as a possible prison site. The pro- posed prison ,, ! site at Mt. l ' f " ll| Alverno con- vent would employ 165 people and house 525 in- mates. Mt. Alverno had been va- cant since 1987, and the proposed prison met op- position from some mem- bers of the community. The state of Missouri proposes the idea of transforming Mt. Alverno into a prison. The convent had been vacant since 1987. Photo by Laura Riedel. In early February, Residents for Quality Living organized to look ir the issue and come up with alternatives. Kathleen Goerlitz, a member of the group, said she believed the prisi should be located at the former Pope and Talbot diaper factory, local about one-half block northeast of the University. A faculty member at Northwest believed the prison would affect t public ' s perception of the community. " I thought about when I left home, " Jon Rickman, director of computii services, said. " I thought about it when I came back to my home at nigl It was an ever-present thought I couldn ' t deal with and didn ' t want to ha to think abou it. " A community meeting was organized by Sen. Sam Graves and Rep. R Bamett in order to allow the public to voice their thoughts concerning l prison. Missouri Department of Corrections sent Dora Schirio, departme coordinator, to present the state ' s plans. In terms of support, the prison had backers. The Maryville Chamber Commerce, the City Council and the University endorsed the proposa The community could only wait until the state made its decision i whether or not to convert Mt. Alverno into a prison. The majority of t town seemed to favor it, but no decision would be able to make everyo happy.

The amendment proposal, initiated by Rep. Mel Hancock, became known as Amendment 7 or better known as Hancock II and gathered the signatures of nearly 130,000 Missouri voters to help on the November ballot. It would have cost the state in budget cuts and tax refunds more than $1 billion beginning in 1996. In order to cut these taxes, many programs would have been affected. State-funded education could have been cut be as much as $206 million if the amendment passed. Health care and prison facilities would have been other programs affected. After the amendment reached the ballot, the Committee To Protect .Missouri ' s Future filed a court challenge saying the amendment was 1 unconstitutional. It lost, and the amendment was officially in voters ' hands on November 5. Student Senate stepped in and launched a campus-wide program to make students aware of the effects the amendment would have on the I campus if passed. Meanwhile, buttons were being made state-wide with the words, " Say NO — Amendment 7. " , The amendment was defeated in a vote of 68 to 3 1 percent. In Nodaway County, it was voted down by 85 percent of the population. Hancock ' s closing remarks were, " I was surprised that students were not concerned with the future. They were concerned only with today. " i The defeat of Hancock II incited relief in students and faculty members across campus because their future at Northwest was secure again.

Student Accused of Arson Conwell Withdraws From University After Charges Are Filed lelly K. Conwell a Northwest student and member of the Delta Zeta Sorority, was charged with class B felony arson in the first degree in in the middle of February after she allegedly set fire to three friends ' lower level apartment. The fire lo- cated at 322 S. Main was sighted at ap- proximately 11:30 p.m. by a neighbor who noticed flames. Conwell was questioned later that evening by authorities who discovered in- formation that led them to be- lieve the fire was set intentionally. Conwell was With a boarded up window, the house that Kelly Conwell was accused of burning sits empty. The residents did not believe that she started the blaze. Photo by Laura Riedel. formally charged and released on $15,000 bond later that evening. According to the Northwest Missourian, Conwell was involved in ; relationship with Ryan Cummins, one of the residents of the apartment: that was gutted by the fire. " That night Kelly was probably in the best mood that I had seen her ii for months, " Russel Law, one of the other residents, said. Conwell was arraigned on Feb. 28, in the Nodaway County Courthous( where she waived her right to a formal arraignment and a prelimenan hearing. According to an article in the Missourian, David Baird, the prosecuting attorney, said that it was customary for the accused to waive preliminary appearances when the state had a solid case that showed the defendant ' ; involvement in the crime. According to the felony complaint, Conwell knowingly damaged at inhabited structure by starting a fire at a time when people were present Conwell ' s next appearance in court was scheduled for March 1 3. At thi; time she would be advised of her rights and enter her plea. The charge of arson in the first degree possessed a more serious penalty because the structure was occupied at the time when the blaze was set Conwell faced at least five years in prison if she was found guilty of th( crime. Conwell withdrew from the University after being formally charge( and returned to her home in Liberty, Mo. Combine Tragedy What was thought to be a tragic farm accident turned out to be more than most Maryville residents could ever imagine. William Taylor, a 37-year-old rural Maryville man, was charged with second- degree murder in the Nov. 10 death of his wife, Debra Jo, 38. The charge was initially second-degree murder but after extensive investigating, the charge was upgraded to first-degree murder. Taylor was freed after a $ 1 00,000 bond was posted and was airaigned on Jan. 13, where he pleaded innocent. Taylor waived his right to a preliminary hearing and went directly to the trial stage. On Jan. 30, his bond was raised to $150,000. He was freed after a property-secured bond was posted. On Feb. 23, Taylor ' s defense attorneys announced to the court that he required a psychological evaluation to determine his competence to stand trial. If Taylor was found to be mentally incapable of stand- ing trial he would not go through the normal trial proceedings. If he was deter- mined capable of standing trial, pretrial motions would begin June 2. The case may then proceed to the trial stage on July 17. Taylor was being represented by state prosecuting attorney Ted Bruce after Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney David Baird asked that a special prosecutor be appointed to the case. He cited his family ' s friendship with the Taylor family as the reason why he could no longercontinue working with the case. Authorities declined to comment on the specifics of the case because the investi- gation was not finalized. Although many people thought it would never happen in Maryville, it did, and it was a bizarre tale of murder which happened just when Maryville least ex- pected it. House Impeaches Secretary of State Missouri Secretary of State Judith Moriarty want( to be in office. In fact, she did almost everything to st there. The Missouri General Assembly and Supren Court, however, believed she gave up her right to ser by committing illegal actions. Moriarty, elected in November 1992, was the fir woman to serve as secretary of state of Missouri. Tl controversy began when her son Timothy decided run for the Missouri House of Representatives. On tl filing deadline of March 29, Moriarty instructed her a Barbara Campbell to process his papers for candidac despite the fact that Timothy Moriarty was not preset According to state law, he was required to be attendance. Some lime later Moriarty realized that tl papers had not been signed. She then told Campbell ar her son to sign the documents. In September, Moriarty was found guilty by a jury : Cole County. She was charged with a misdemeanor f( falsifying state documents. Governor Mel Camahc asked Moriarty to step down, but she refused. Morian then went before the House who voted to impeach he Following impeachment, Moriarty still claimed si had done nothing wrong and refused to step down. 318 • Mini-Mag ELLISON -AUXIER ARCHITECTS INC.

Soccer was not widely acknowledged by Americans. The traditional powers came to the United States among the two dozen teams that made it to the final matches. Argentina, Brazil, Italy and Germany, along with the other 20 teams, made it through 491 qualifying matches and played 52 games in nine cities over a one month period. Nine different fields were transformed for the World Cup. Detroit ' s Pontiac Silverdome was transformed into a grass field for the World Cup, and Stanford University ' s stadium turf was given a $5 million face lift for the festivities, according to a Time article. The Cup began in Soldier Field in Chicago and culminated in the championship game in the Rose Bowl on July 1 7, where Brazil and Italy squared off in a contest that would eventually be decided by a sudden death overtime. Other countries that played in the World Cup in ' 94 were the United States and Colombia, which faced a loss of a player because he accidentally kicked a goal for the United States. The kick happened when the ball slipped past his foot. The kick won the game for the United States. He was killed back home in the street by someone who thought he should not have missed the ball.

Rich 178 Music and Mud Reunite Generations All weekend long, people were looking for the Woodstock spirit. People dove into the mosh pit, rolled joints and waited in lines for Woodstock ' 94 at the 840-acre Winston Farm outside Saugerties, N.Y. Woodstock ' 94 was held the weekend of Aug. 12 and 13. It was the 25th anniversary sequel to the legendary 1969 event. History never truly repeated itself, but the ' 94 Woodstock, like its legendary predecessor, turned out to have a life of its own. " It was totally like I was back in time, " Tadd Hays said. " There was an obvious gap between the two generations because some were wearing bell bottoms and some had mohawks. It was so wild to see all these people together. " Saturday afternoon ' s rain produced the most obvious link between the two festivals-mud. This was not just a little wet dirt but a sucking sludge that was able to swallow sneakers right off the feet. The mosh pit got a bit heavy at times, with injured patrons being passed back to the sound board. While Woodstock ' 94 was accused of being a cultural sellout, the more surpris- ing news was that a festival featuring doz- ens of top bands unable to sell all of its 250,000 tickets. Slow ticket sales were blamed on both the $ 1 35 price and the fact that to promote car pooling, tickets were available only in blocks of four. Among the 40 performers who rocked and enthralled the masses during Woodstock ' 94 included: Bob Dylan, The Neville Brothers, Santana, the Allman Brothers and Crosby, Stills Nash. Also for the twenty-something genera- tion. Arrested Development, Aerosmith, Nine-Inch Nails, Green Day and Melissa Etheridge performed in front of the masses of people. In the end, what Woodstock ' 94 proved had nothing to do with myth-making, bridging generation gaps or defining cul- tural moments, it was a three-day event that attracted music lovers of every age and taste. By Jamie Hatz V oodstock • 325 Fox Changes Networks With football and youth-oriented programming like " Beverly Hills 90210, " Fox solidified its presence as a network. The network outbid NBC, CBS and ABC for the right to run Sunday football. Fox bid millions of dollars in order to achieve the rights. The fourth network also managed to buy out several local affiliates, including Kansas City ' s WDAF Channel 4. The switch created confusion for many of the viewers and they had to become used to the new network set up. One of its first duties was to change its primetime line up. On Sept. 12, Fox 41 began airing NBC programming and WDAF started to show Fox shows. Besides the change in primetime programming, the Fox 41 Kid ' s Club left the air along with such Saturday morning cartoons as ' Tiny Toon Adventures " and " Batman and Robin " to make room for more adult-oriented programming such as talk shows from the like of exercise guru Susan Powter and MTV ' s Jon Stewart. Channel 41 also added an extra hour of news in the morning and during primetime. Channel 62 added many of the shows to theii regular programming schedules, as well as Royals baseball coverage and some syndicated series which included an Aaron Spelling production of " Robin ' s Hood.

Troy 177 328 ' Index Hometown Director Robert Altman, the acclaimed director of such legendary films as • ' M A S H, " ' •Short Cuts " and, most recently. " Ready to Wear, " will now turn his director ' s lens on his hometown in the upcoming movie " Kansas City. " This marks the first time since 199 1 , when " Mr and Mrs. Bridge " starring Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, that a film was shot in Kansas City. Shooting the $15 million film was scheduled to begin April 18, though production work began months before that with scouting locations, crew members and, of course, actors. In his Feb. 23 column in the Kansas dry Star, Heame Christopher Jr. indicated that Kim Basinger and Harry Belafonte were among the stars of Altman ' s sure to be celebrity-saturated film. After focusing on the fashion world of Paris, the dirty business of Hollywood and the climate of a political campaign in other movies, the Oscar-nominated film maker will be looking at the ins and outs of Kansas City. Some possible locations include various jazz clubs and Union Station. David Thomas, co-producer of " Kansas City. " said in a 5rar article that the movie will feature some of the city ' s famous jazz scene, with some nationally known musicians thrown in to make a " world-class soundtrack. " Thomas said local interest in the film is intense, especially the many positions as extras and supporting roles. Altman, known for packing many characters into one movie and having them intercon- nect, sometimes by a single thread, said the company will be hiring individuals with very specific " looks.

Back Row: Chris Galitz, Susan Porterfield, Amy Duggan and Mike Johnson. Well guys, this is it. The yearbook is finallj completed and it ' s time for me to say good- bye to my four years on Tower. By being on Tower for your years, I have learned more than I could possibly imagine and if wasn ' t for my previous editors I woulc have never continued on. My first thanks goe to my first editor, Stephanie. You not only gave me my first editorial board position on Tower as production manager but you ini- tially helped me make the decision to go on a editor in chief. Allison, you had faith in me enough to let me shine as art director and Karissa you helped me bridge the transition from design to copy besides becoming one oi my best friends. My dearest thanks goes to al of you. I have to start by saying the year came to ai end when I least expected it. It seems like only yesterday we were trying to check into the wrong hotel in St. Louis and were getting kicked out of the Arch. I had a blast this year whether it was wearing pajamas to work on our theme weekends, telling blind boy jokes, hanging out on Bourbon Street in New Orleans or eating spaghetti with no utensils wearing trash bags. Along with our good times we definitely had some tough times here and there but I hope everyone feels that the end product was well worth it. I hope each one of you knows how impor- tant you have been to the production of this book. I was fortunate enough to work with some very talented and dedicated editors and to each of you I give a most deserving thanks Amanda- 1 couldn ' t have been blessed with a better managing editor. Not only were you an AP goddess, you were a great friend. You helped me maintain my sanity and kept things under control when I wasn ' t around. I espe- cially appreciate you keeping the copy editors READing when I was working with design oi photography. Thanks. Laura- The special section is beautiful! I know I didn ' t tell you often, but you did a wonderful job this year handling photogra- phy. I know there were many times when you had more photo assignments than photogra- 332 • Editor ' s note vhen you had more photo assignments than photographers but you handled the job with ■ase and with surprisingly few smoke breaks, rhanks for all you hard work. Chris Tucker- You are a heck of a ihotographer. It ' s amazing the progress you lave made since I first met you. I admire our hard work by taking on numerous photo issignments at a time and offering your reative insight when we picked. You deserve I pat on the back — the photos in the book ire the best yet and the color is beautiful! Chris Galitz- Thanks for being so patient vith my feeble attempts to tell you why I lidn ' t like certain prints and when I asked ' ou to bum a little more. You are an excellent larkroom tech and always kept us laughing vith your fork barrettes and with your hiccup augh. Chera- Well lady you should eat up. The )eople and the organization designs are great, fou jumped into production like a pro and I Appreciate your patience with my sketchy lesigns. Thanks for keeping us smiling by bowing us your more than graceful dance teps and inspirational lyrics. I promise I ' ll lever try being a matchmaker again! Mike- The student life and sports sections eally look nice. We could always count on ou to add or cheese a little more to our tories to make them fit or give us fake quotes o we knew what eventually the finaled pread would look like. Thanks. Your fun oving spirit got us through the weekends ilthough I ' m still kind of concerned with ' our wardrobe of T-shirt, shorts and no shoes vhen it was snowing outside. Ruby- What can I say? I ' m terribly sorry I Jmost snapped your neck in two. I guess I vas jealous of your beautiful hair. I do have o say you handled people and academics vith expertise. Good job. I could always ;ount on you to get things done and laugh mcontrollably at nothing. Maybe is was all hose chocolate stars and Mountain Dews for )reakfast. j Amy- You did it, the mini-mag looks iwesome. You had a tough load balancing ;ntertainment, mini-mag, fact checking and lefending blind boy besides picking up the ;lack for everyone else. And guess what? fou did it all without an oxygen mask (Get t? — Breathe). Thanks so much. Susan- You are truly one of a kind. I never knew what to expect when I came in on the weekends whether it would be Brady pig tales or a Mickey Mouse cap. I did know however, if there was anyone to mooch food it would be you. Thanks for all your hard work with the index and for keeping the basketball games a trip. The year would have not been the same without you. Cindy, Emilee, Indira and Jason- 1 owe each of you a thanks. It was unfortunate for one reason or another you could not finish out the year with us, but I do appreciate the time you did get to work with us. I would also like to thank all of the staff members. I know the hours were long and sometimes you felt your efforts weren ' t worthwhile, but believe me they were. Without the contributing staff designers, photographers and writers we wouldn ' t have been able to put this book together. Thanks for all your hard work. Laura- To you I owe my biggest thanks. Without you I would not be in the position I am today. I appreciate you letting me air my grievances when there was no one around to listen and reassure me when things didn ' t turn out as I planned. Your constant understanding and encouragement kept me and the staff going on. Of course Dr. Mom, your never ending supply of ice cream and chili helped out a lot too. Thank you. I should also thank my family for all your love and support. It was always nice to know you were behind me 100% with whatever I was doing even if I wasn ' t sure myself. If it wasn ' t for you, I would have never made it this far and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And to you the readers, this book is for you. It is difficult to put together a 336 page book that accurately describes the year. I thank you for being so patient with our numerous phone calls and photo reshoots. I hope you enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. Again, I want to thank everyone for letting this be one of the best years of my life. You guys put up a lot with my pancreatic cancer, my reenactments of numerous concerts and my warped sense of humor. You guys were great. I wish all of you the best of luck in the future.
