CIRCLES OF AWARENESS 3 ■ i i The capacity for reformation and change lay within the individual and the University. For NWIVISU it was a year of changes; each having impact but some more noticeable than others. It was a transitional year, stimulated by the leadership of the University ' s eighth president Dr. B. D. Owens. His inauguration climaxed a series of events aimed at expan- ding the individual ' s horizons and designed for accentuating the University ' s new directions and goals. The new directions and goals were marked by personnel changes. Ad- ministrative reshuffling seemed abundant and resulted in 19 resignations. But the changes in the administra- tion did not have the visible impact on students that the resignation of Rex Gwinn, student senate presi- dent, did. For the first time, students did not elect the president as Senate members named Senior Senator John Moore to head the student body. A positive impact on students was a long-awaited surge of social ac- tivities. Organizations joined to offer individuals another perspective of campus life. For the first time in a year, the walls of Lamkin Gym vibrated with the sounds of rock n ' roll from the Ozark Mountain Daredeveils. In the fall, students twisted the night away with Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids as the 50 ' s came alive. Another new social activity spon- sored by Inter-Residence Hall Coun- cil, promoted interaction between residence halls with Havoc Week. The activities brought a welcome break from the tedium of classwork and the accompanying 12 inches of snow created more chaos as classes were cancelled for the first time in over 70 years. Students took time out to romp in the snow but they also pitched in to help the University dig out from the worst blizzard in 17 years. The blizzard was another inci- dent of individuals working together for a common cause. The link between students, faculty and administrators was individuals who cared. It was a year of change and with that change came pride in attempting to achieve projected goals and directions. In a concen- trated effort, individuals expanded their circles of awareness and work- ed together for a common cause . . . excellence. 4 CAMPUS CHANGES S!5r Gym ckn ' itiln IM W-.i. iPOd- BELOW: Putting on his sl ates, Jim Clark prepares to meet friends on the frozen college pond.

Individuals prepared for the future as physical changes resulted in a step forward toward progress. Renovation of the Administration Building was the most evident physical change as students dodged workmen and building supplies. Another campus improvement was the additional sidewalks exten- ding from the Student Union. However as some sidewalks were added, others were being torn up as maintenance dug deep to work on the water lines. Fall rains kept these places virtual mud slides and at times impassable. Progressive changes were not limited to campus surroundinngs as Maryville businesses grew in number. The North Side Mall, Coaches II, Lemars Originals and K- Mart gave individuals a wider shop- ping selection. Fast food and pizza places increased when Taco Johns, Long John Silvers, Nice ' s Deli and John ' s Pizza opened for business. With these additions, students were not only exposed to a wider selection but were also affected by an in- crease in job opportunities. At times tradition and sentiment lost to progress— as in the case of the Landmark. The two-story struc- ture was indeed a landmark, a part of the town for nearly 100 years. But it got in the way of progress and was razed in late spring. Although some individuals ques- tion change, it is the only thing that has brought progress. People or in- dividuals emphasize it, believe in it, live by it and have learned to prosper and grow great by it. Change has become a way of life and a means of expanding awareness. 6 CHANGING SURROUNDINGS ' , At t ■-JSSEi LEFT: The Landmark ' s decorations add a special touch at Christmas.

FAR RIGHT: Cold winter weather adds to soaring Univer- sity utility costs. 8 MONEY HASSLES An unexpected change for the year was the strong impact inflation had on individuals and the Universi- ty. Students weren ' t the only ones affected as the administration faced their money hassles. Despite a $600,000 cut by the Coordinating Board of Higher Education In the budget request, the Board of Regents pledged to hold the line on rising fees. However, there was an increase in housing costs to cover skyrocketing utility ex- penses. A reoccurring expense problem faced was a declining enrollment. Already the smallest state university, the number of students decreased markedly between semesters. Administrative problems ultimate- ly affected the student body. Dorm residents were confronted by an ad- ditional food service fee and a $3 ac- tivity fee, added to the already soar- ing cost of education. Some students took action to combat the expense and restrictions of dorm living and moved off- campus. Off-campus residents accepted the responsibilities of bills and living within a prescribed budget. Individuals faced the rising cost of living and dealt with the problem as best they could. Whether they lived on or off-campus, budgeting money became a fact of life for students. In- dividuals broadened their circles of awareness as they learned the value of a dollar. y -jjll ' -;7a Tr-- »MHi wm MONEY HASSLES 9 RIGHT; " The Marriage of Figaro, " a comic opera, is performed by the Kan- sas City Lyric Opera.

TOP CENTER; Acclaimed husband-wife team Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy appear on campus in " Harvey, " a part of the Fabulous Forties Festival. TOP 10 VISITING CELEBRITIES Accelerating the opportunity for personal and social fulfillment, the University brought top-name per- sonalities to campus. Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy and The Theater for the Deaf were dramatical outlets otherwise un- available to students. Music enthusiasts found Sarah Caldwell conducting the St. Louis Symphony and the Kansas City Lyric Opera a welcome addition to their usual musical listening entertainment. Speakers Nikki Giovanni and Judy Carter ' s controversial lectures caus- ed mixed reactions among their audiences. Giovanni said survival in- cludes initiating changes. Change, or the lack of its effect, was a major concern for both women, as Carter spoke about the Equal Rights Amendment. Another well-known celebrity to appear on campus was Col. James Irwin, Apollo 15 astronaut. Irwin, one of 12 Americans to set foot on the moon, stressed the advancement of knowledge within the universe in which we live. Film clips of his mis- sion highlighted the lecture. At NWMSU, individuals had the opportunity to step forward and take advantage of personal and social events offered by the University. It was up to each student to broaden his perspectives and expand his cultural awareness. VISITING CELEBRITIES 11 Individuals found themselves surrounded by a variety of aspects of campus life. A new ad- ministration, attitudes and philosophy resulted in changing traditional patterns. Mid-terms w ere moved up two weeks earlier and Homecoming walk-out day was reinstated. Students grumbled about the new no late key policy and desk workers complained about the 2-4 morning shift, but somehow everyone sur- vived. The student body warmly received the Ozark Mountain Daredevils during Joe Toker Daze, and a fall concert by Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids. Other mini concerts followed on Wednesday night, and people realized that suitcasing might eventually be cured. Students cursed dorms without heat and new parking regulations, but they still turned out in record numbers to attend Homecoming festivities, cultural events, and athletic contests. Students even found Sunday evening suppers in the dorm lounges a good chance to develop closer friendships. Although enrollment was down, apathy decreased as students formed their own opinions of changing campus Ijfe. 12 STUDENT LIFE lif»|y ;.«ipiVK.i«tQ.- : © f; A y ' v;. ' ' " •I tsw «« 3 v V ■•X IPESS UDENT LIFE 13 Being of sound mind and body! College. The best years of your life, or so they say. Sometimes though, when things got rough, students wondered if it was true. It was always the good times one heard about. All the parties, the games, the new friends, and the feeling of being on campus on a crisp, autumn day filled conversations of college. No one mentioned the adjustments en- countered when facing college and its ex- periences for the first time. Getting along with the roommate, dealing with pressures of ex- ams, and establishing personal values were real challenges. Sometimes these pressures became more than an individual could handle alone, and students turned to an objective listener to help them sort through their concerns. This was where the role of the University Counseling Center was paramount. Through individual and group guidance, they tried to help college become a more satisfying, positive experience. Located in Cauffield Hall, counseling psy- chologists Dave Sundberg and Rick Long offered daily assistance on a one-to-one basis to help students through the rough spots. " Basically, it ' s an educational center, and we ' re here primarily to help students get the most from their education, " said Long. The counselors worked with any form of anx- iety that might have hindered the educational process. " There ' s an assumption that ' my problem is too little to bother anybody with, ' " said Sundberg, " but any problem is a problem if it ' s bothering you. " Another student service on campus dealt with health problems. Located in Colbert Hall, the Student Health Center provided students with medical advice and treatment. Staffed by a medical doctor, two registered nurses, a secretary and two health aides, the Center treated, on the average, 200 students per week. Common cases treated were respiratory problems, minor injuries, gynecological examinations and treatments, and venereal disease (VD) tests. While consultation with the doctor was free, students paid for prescriptions, lab tests and X- rays. Dr. Desmion Dizney said she enjoyed helping college students rather than having a general practice. " It ' s a challenge to be able to help the patient understand his present illness and how he can recover, " she said. A concern of Dr. Dizney ' s was the cramped facilities of the Health Center. She said the staff was adequate, yet there was only room for one or two students at a time. Some typical frustrations were summed up by waiting patient, Dorothy Cross. " There seem to be too few people back there and too many people in the waiting room. " i. ' Vl k r 14 HEALTH GUIDANCE RIGHT: David Sundberg has a quiet moment in his office.

Students learned the proper techniques of teaching and speaking in front of cameras while athletes learned from r: their mistakes on replays. ITV provided more than just supplemental linstruction to the regular classroom programs. lit offered different departments to equipment land know-how to do their own filming. liTechnicians also gained experience by repair- [ing department equipment. Lectures and inter- views were video-taped for classes such as jSpeech 101 and Introduction to Film Study. ITV Ihad an outlet to Maryville through channel 10 Ion cable T.V. The programs were informative Iwith a campus and community calender. Dr. Robert Bohlken, chairman of the Speech and Theater Department, explained, " The emphasis will change from instructional productions to the training of students for the professional world. " Larry Lewellen, ITV techni- cian, compared ITV students to driver educa- tion students. " When the class is finished they go on to a different automobile, but the driving techniques are the same. When our students leave, they go on to different cameras and studios, but they use the same techniques they learned here. " ITV was confined closely to campus but plans were made to develop Channel 10. Ideas included live news broadcasts and more public, rather than campus-oriented programs.

INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION 17 Broadcasters keep discs turning Broadcasting was more than its usual challenge due to wires sticking out of the walls, new equipment blocking the doorways, and pliers and screwdrivers decorating the floors at the beginning of the year. Larry Lewellen said, " There was a little irritation because of the mess, but everyone knew it was just tem- porary. " But the mess did not stop KDLX and KXCV from broadcasting, 18 hours a day. The chaos of remodeling transformed the broadcasting headquarters into new studios, offices and equipment for the radio stations and TV station. Also improved was the library of over 17,000 records— one of the largest record libraries in the area. The quality of produ ction was also improved by making the studios sound proof. In cooperation with National Public Radio, KDLX and KXCV regularly broadcast national and local news, weather and sports. KDLX kept students informed on campus happenings and played pop music, while KXCV played easy-listening music to the campus and surrounding area. KXCV also scheduled features like " Static and Stereo " where the most recent in rock music was played; " Alive and Living " with visits with interesting local people, and on the street interviews in down- town Maryville; and " The Editor Speaks. " A poll showed that " 92 percent of all students listened to KDLX sometime during the day, " said student station manager, Rodney Harris. The radio stations were more than just ex- perience for the broadcasters, but they per- formed a definite service in keeping everyone on campus informed and entertained.

V !ti X ' Wednesday nights marathon gang Clacking typewriters, the incessant bleep, bleep of the Compugraphic 7200 headliner and sheer bedlam racked McCracken Hall each Wednesday night. The MISSOURIAN staff worked feverishly to turn out each weekly edition, a formidable task for a student newspaper. Editor Kathy Bovaird said that all operations except printing were done by the 22-member staff. Though the advertising staff was brand new and many first story efforts were brief, she added, " For a young and inexperienced staff, they pulled together pretty well. " Bovaird and the staff worked for publishing more campus-related cartoons, artwork and editorials. They also tried to associate themselves more closely with the radio station and provide more consumer interest stories. Dave Gieseke, Tom Irvin and sports editor Dale Gard broadened their coverage. Along with the main seasonal sports, they included in- tramurals and reports of conference standings. Bob Power summed up his staff experience by saying, " I got a lot of practical experience but it was so time-consuming. Wednesday nights got to be a real pain, but the pain was gone and the time was worth it when I saw my byline after the paper came out on Thursday.

C ■p if V 00 Changes open staff ' s awareness Posted on the wall in the TOWER office was a sign which summed it all up— " A yearbook is an awful lot of trouble. " Despite the all-nighters and work weekends to meet deadlines, the staff worked well together under pressure. The thing which set this yearbook apart from any other TOWER was the staff, " said Linda Smith, adviser. " Few staffs can boast that they didn ' t miss a deadline, that they still liked each other when the final pages were sent to the plant and that they sincerely tried to report the year the way it was, not as they would have lik- ed for it to be. " Expanded coverage and feature reporting were the biggest changes in the publication. The book increased 32 pages to allow for the broader coverage of the year. An effort was made to make the book more personal. " We think we made a lot of improvements by trying to center the book on the individual, " said Sports Editor Linda Brockman. " The copy was much better and the biggest change was ad- ding the student faculty features. " Another change was having two editors for the book. During semester break Editor Larry Helm was hired as a policeman by the Maryville Public Safety Department. Assistant Editor Ann Mutti took over as the editor in January. " I thought the staff reacted favorably to the change, " said Mutti. " There were a lot of hard workers who worked well together all year. They made the book happen. " Along with the changes, improvements and hard work were the good times. In addition to picnics, spaghetti and Chinese pork chop suppers, there was the great lobster feast. Twelve lobsters were sent to the staff com- pliments of Stevens Studio in Bangor, Maine. For those on the TOWER staff the 1978 edi- tion became more than a memory book, more than a job to be completed, from September to March it became a way of life. 22 TOWER STUDENT SENATE.

Senate pursues student opinion Rex Gwinn resigned as Student Senate president in January because of an " attractive " business opportunity. " IVIy decision to leave was made with firm belief tliat the bulk of our goals and objectives for this calendar year have either been com- pleted or at least started, " said Gwinn. Gwinn ' s resignation resulted in a controver- sial discussion among senators. They decided to call his resignation temporary instead of per- manent and unanimously elected Senior Senator John Moore as Gwinn ' s replacement. During Gwinn ' s term, Student Senate made numerous accomplishments. These included housing for foreign students during vacation periods, naming a full-time intramural director, 24 STUDENT SENATE increased gymnasium and pool hours and in- stallation of telephones for the fall semester in the high rise dorms. These changes came about because of the Senate ' s platform to serve as the bridge between students and administration. " Senate was responsive to any complaint or issue that came before us, " said Gwinn. " We took every suggestion and criticism seriously. That ' s a major part of being a student leader. " There was a variety of students making up the Senate this year, " More than in the past, Senate was a melting pot this year, " said Mic Jones, junior president. " We had a wide representation of the students and hardly anyone wasn ' t represented. " STUDENT SENATE 25 BELOW: One Student Union Board project was to help sponsor the Christ- mas Madralier Feaste.

The Concerts, Dances and Special Events Committee, the Coffee Houses and Speakers Committee, and the Movies Committee formed the basis for SUB. A new committee, set up during the second semester, was the Publicity Committee. " We planned to run all of our publicity through that committee to get it more organized, " said Lisa Gates. Although each committee had their own meetings, general meetings and executive meetings were held. " These were a chance to get together and tell people what their com- mittee was working on, " Gates said. It was sometimes difficult to plan events that would please all of the students. However, since SUB money came from student fees, this was a major goal. " It was hard to program for every student ' s interests, but we tried to reach the widest spectrum we could, " said Debbie Mason, president. Students ' ideas for events were welcomed, however, Rosanne Sonnemoser said, " the only way you could get input was to join SUB. " Getting new members was a problem. Often people were already involved in other groups or did not know how to join. Sonnemoser felt that they did attract some freshman because " they wanted to get involved with some activities on campus. If they got on some committee they had an opportunity to meet other people. " STUDENT UNION BOARD 27 BELOW: Franken Hall residents struggle with their last load of belongings. RIGHT: Tickets keep ac- cumulating on a vehicle that doesn ' t display a parking permit. Moving in becomes family affair Well-seasoned veterans of college life and freshmen clad in green and white NWMSU T- shirts (compliments of the University) faced changes and challenges as students swarmed to campus 4,413 strong. In most cases, the whole family helped in the pilgrimage to college life. After struggling with loads of clothes, stereos and all that is necessary to make a room a home-away-from- home, students were left on their own to cope and to adjust. Car owners noticed one of the biggest changes. Open parking policies fell when park- ing lot assignments were issued on a first- come, first-serve basis. According to Earl Brailey, director of securi- ty, the change was hoped to reduce the number of tickets, eliminate confusion between off- campus and on-campus parking, and reduce moving vehicles during the day. Off-campus students were especially unhap- py because the new situation did not assure them of parking spots within the " normal " walk- ing distance of campus. One student, Steve Stucker, believed the new policy created as many problems as it solved. " I would have paid the $10 for a sticker, but it wasn ' t worth it. I don ' t think parking was as much a problem before the new policy took effect. " While many students were displeased with 28 MOVING IN the parking situation, almost no one could find fault with the shorter lines in the cafeteria. After being closed for two years because of rising operational costs, the high-rise cafeteria was again opened, saving the residents of Phillips, Dieterich, Millikan and Franken halls the long trek to the Student Union Cafeteria. And another surprise awaited them. Just as mom would serve unlimited seconds, the cafeteria made extra helpings available on all food. This change was brought about by SAGA, new food service employed by NWMSU. Bob Smith, SAGA ' s director, noted that the service was not a catering operation, because all food was prepared on campus. Like Cinderella, girls faced a real problem if they weren ' t home by midnight. Those retur- ning after twelve found the dorm doors locked and a security guard their only means of en- trance. After the first week, hostesses were on duty to unlock doors between midnight and 4 a.m. Brailey said the plan had been established " to increase security on campus and to prevent vandalism in the dorms. " While security may have been improved, the plan was not without its faults. " Employing two girls at a total of $1 8 a night to admit three residents was just not worth it " said Lisa Lawrence, a night hostess in Hudson Hall. ABOVE: Another day of cottage cheese and peaches.

MOVING IN 29 As certain as death and taxes . . . Finals are com in ' — ready or not i .ili m Sudden panic struck Paul Putoff as he watched football on TV that Monday night. For this was no ordinary night, he realized. It was the eve of the Great Judgement— finals. He cursed the powerful beings who had taken away the traditional " Dead Day " . Now there would be nothing but a dead morning, and that wouldn ' t give him time to recover for his first 12:00 final. Paul wasn ' t sure where to start. In a moment of revelation, he remembered a girl he had sat next to that time he went to class. Yes, he decided, he would call her to his rescue. Paul found Susie, and she agreed to study with Paul. Then it was time to crack open the books. Literally. Paul carefully undid the paper sack containing his books so as not to tear the com- puter read-off of his class schedule . . . Paul had earlier decided he didn ' t need to read text- book assignments. He drew a heavy sigh as he looked over the textbook he had to know by heart tomorrow for his first final, which was now a mere 12 hours away. As Susie began drilling Paul from his text- book, his thoughts drifted off to better times. Still, he kept hearing that haunting, squeaking voice of Susie saying, " Paul, what is a T- account form? " Finally in disgust, Susie shut the book and started to leave. " Honestly, " she thought, " some students will never learn!

FINALS WEEK 31 32 GRADUATION Rain can ' t dampen graduates ' outlook Programs fluttered and a steady conversa- tion spread through the 5,000-mennber, standing-room-only crowd assembled in Lamkin Gym on May 9, 1977. A morning thunderstorm forced 637 un- dergraduates and 119 graduates and their guests indoors to observe NWMSU ' s 71st spr- ing commencement. The ceremonies started w ith the invocation by Dr. Don Retry, then executive vice president. The concert band provided special music. Three recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award, Dr. Eileen Elliot Vivers, Gerald Sprong and Larry Jones D.D.S., received plaques, gifts and addressed the candidates for graduation. The annual award honors those alumni who have made a mark for the university and themselves in their particular field; Dr. Vivers in education, Sprong in business, and Dr. Jones in medicine. The trio each called upon the graduating class members to exhibit determination and hard work. Then, Dr. John Mees, acting provost, presented the candidates their degrees. After the seemingly endless list was called, the graduates, their friends and relatives, emerged into a sunlit spring day. GRADUATION 33 ' Spirits ' fly iiigh at Toiler Daze e fents In the annual spring fight against suitcasers, Student Union Board and the Inter-Residence Council sponsored Joe Toker Daze. Friday ' s festivities were upset by a sudden rainstorm, but the scheduled outdoor coffeehouse moved indoors and the " Walkenhorst Brothers and Friends " enter- tained for three hours. Activities continued Friday night with a dance in the Ballroom of the Student Union, featuring " Liquid Fire " . The long-awaited " Almost Anything Goes, " began after lunch on Saturday. Events ranged from a nine-legged race to a wheelbarrow relay race with raw eggs. A pie-throwing contest followed with the captains of each team joining in. This year ' s addition of an obstacle course for blind-folded lovers who had to put on pajamas, jump in and out of bed, make the bed and then get re-dressed, was well-received. The annual Jack-and-Jill Hill ended the day as students slipped down the wet, tarp hill. Prizes of $250 were offered by the Union Board, Student Senate, and the Inter- Residence Council. The Mike VanGuilder Memorial Team took the top prize of $100. Lamkin Gym vibrated with the sounds of the " Ozark Mountain Daredevils " Saturday night. It was the first concert held since 1976 in Lamkin, due to structural damage. Security was tight and alcohol was confiscated from several students. The Daredevils played for 90 minutes and returned for two encores. 34 JOE TOKER DAZE FAR LEFT: Blue Grass musicians play for students in the Coffeehouse.

JOE TOKER DAZE 35 students rock to the Daredevils After a year of silence, Lamkin Gym once again vibrated witti the sounds of an lionest-to- goodness rock ' n ' roll concert. Ozark Mountain Daredevils brought their down-home style music to campus, highlighting Joe Toker Daze. The wait seemed endless as 2500 restless students tried to keep themselves amused. Boos erupted from the crowd as security of- ficers confiscated frisbees and alcoholic beverages to scrutinize the crowd ' s activities. Security was expected, but not in such force. Students knew that their behavior would deter- mine the possibility of future concerts and com- plied with regulations. " The students ' behavior was outstanding, " said Marvin Silliman, director of Student Ac- tivities. " With a few minor exceptions, the students behaved as they were asked. " The concert opened with guitar soloist Danny Cox. His music was comprised of a rare blend of calypso and blues. Cox showed his range versatility and crisp, clear sound of his voice in folksongs. One included a " Joe Toker Daze " rendition. Then came the bluegrass and country music of Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Mellow numbers and the music ' s inconsistent pace caused the crowd to be restless. Later, they got on their feet for fast-moving, foot-stomping, hand- clappin ' songs like " Chicken Train " and " If You Wanna Get to Heaven. " The crowd yelled for more and Ozark came back for two encores. " The music was great, but it was too hot, " said student Robin Dehn. " We ' ll sweat together, " said Mike Granda, one of the Daredevils. The crowd did just that as students enjoyed 90 minutes of music. 36 OZARK MOUNTAIN DAREDEVILS ABOVE: Students come together to enjoy the Ozark Mountain Daredevil Concert.

Floats depicting Disney favorites, crept carefully along the two-mile parade route to avoid puddles from the previous evening ' s shower. Snow White, Cinderella and Mickey Mouse rehearsed their clowning long before those who kicked off the 48-hour weekend with food, and drink rose to face the day. Kathy Bagley of the BMB, summed up the event. " It wasn ' t bad marching during the parade— I ' m just glad it didn ' t rain while we were out there. " Students, alumni and townspeople lined College Avenue, Fourth Street, Market Street and Third Street in mass. Some sipped coffee or cocoa to keep warm and munched on pastries provided by numerous bake sales. And, after the parade there was some more entertainment. There was the game. Weather for the 1977 Homecoming football game could have been a bit more pleasant than the gray, rainy skies, but the outcome of the game should have brought a little sunshine to all Bearcat fans, as the ' Cats won a 27-12 deci- sion over Central Missouri State. A seven-yard run by junior Dan Montgomery in the first period put the ' Cats on the scoreboard first, and the kick by sophomore Shawn Geraghty made the score, 7-0. Central then came back with a three-yard TO run, but their extra point attempt failed. The score stood at 7-6. but then CMSU scored another TD to make it a 12-7 game at the half. That lead was slowly whittled away as the ' Cats came back with 20 second-half points. Geraghty, later named the recipient of the Don Black Memorial Trophy which honors the out- standing NWMSU player in the Homecoming game, sparked the ' Cat comeback when he got off two 36-yard field goals, one in the third quarter and one in the final quarter, to put the ' Cats up by one, 13-12. A 48-yard pass interception return by senor Mark Vansickle and a two-yard run by senior Jim Solo plus two Geraghty kicks added some insurance points for the Cats. Bearcat Graduate Assistant Charlie Dieker, " We went into the game knowing we had to win, and we played a pretty fair first half. Trailing at halftime, we knew we had to come back in the second half. Our defense played real well, and overall, we played a fine football game. " Seniors Andy Ruesche and Joe Hederman also commented about their last Homecoming game. Ruesche stated that " It was great to win— in fact, it was probably my most satisfying win all year. " Hederman added that he " liked winning after losing last year ' s Homecoming. It was great winning in front of all the parents. Our offense and defense really got it together. " RIGHT: Bullett entertains at the Satur- day night dance.

BELOW: Marty Carter, Terry Heath, and Brian Craw- ford liand out winners ' trophies at the variety show. Week features coronation, dance Suspense filled the air as the five finalists for Homecoming queen made their way down the aisle to the stage. Nancy Cole, accompanied by Judith Gann, Crissy Schmidt, Marilee Smith and Susan Silvius, had little idea that she was to be crowned queen in less than ten minutes. Once she was crowned and kissed by Stu- dent Body President Rex Gwinn, cameras and tape recorders appeared everywhere. Follow- ing those were screams, tears and hugs from her Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority sisters. The next few days were filled with riding in the parade and attending the football game. " I loved the parade, " said Cole. " I missed watching the parade, but I liked seeing all the people. " Another queen to be crowned during Homecoming week was Deborah Vinson. The Ms. Black Pageant was unique since it involved talent competition as well as a special song and dance routine done by all 12 contestants. Ac- cording to Vinson, the production number was a valuable experience for the girls. " I gained knowledge as far as how I feel about working with my peers and using my talents, " she said. Besides the crowning of the two queens, another homecoming event included a dance. After an afternoon of sitting through drizzling rain on cold, wet bleachers to watch the Bear- cats stomp the Central Missouri State Mules in the Homecoming game, some 2,200 students found Lamkin Gym to be a welcome retreat Saturday night to dance to the sounds of " Bullett, " Out of Boulder, Colo., the rock band includ- ed four former NWMSU students. The band played a variety of tunes that included their original work as well as popular hits from other artists. Some students expressed disappointment that no major concert was scheduled for Homecoming weekend. According to co- chairman of the dance and concert committee for Union Board, Lisa Gates and Steve Thomas, two fair-size concerts or one major concert could have been scheduled. The committee decided to have one large spring concert in- stead, " I thought they could have had a higher quality band, " said Britt Davis, freshman. " They were hard to dance to and didn ' t have a consis- tent beat. " Another student, Cheryl Heckel, sophomore, expressed an opposite view. " I thought the dance was fairly good because they did play popular music and they were easy to dance to. " While some students expressed their dis- satisfaction with the dance, members of Union Board felt it was a success. " We had a large crowd and it looked like students were enjoying themselves, " said Gates. " There was no hassle this time with security and students smoking or drinking, " said Thomas. " Although there were eight security guards, they were less conspicuous than in the past and there were no problems. " HOMECOMING 41 Crowd enjoys skits with sarcastic tone All the favorite Disney characters were there in live animation as they paid " A Tribute to Walt Disney, " in the Homecoming Variety Show. Running for three nights, the shows brought capacity crowds to the Auditorium. Masters of Ceremony Lisa Green and Al Southern entertained the audiences between acts as they insulted each other with their " all in fun " remarks. Musicals and skits satirized Coach Redd, his Bearcats and the Central Missouri State Mules at the Homecoming game. The satires were presented as fractured versions of Disney tales as Sigma Sigma Sigma ' s " Pinocchio " and Phi Sigma Epsilon ' s " Peter Pan " took honors. A surprise between oleo acts was " Campus Update, " with Steve Stucker acting as anchor man. Besides " reliably " informing the viewers of news developments, this act kept the audience entertained and rolling with laughter. At the conclusion of the first night of the show, Nancy Cole was crowned Homecoming queen. Her court included Marilee Smith, Susan Silvius, Crissy Schmidt and Judith Gann. Co-chairmen for the events, Robin Roberts and Dan Morgan, expressed their satisfaction with the way the shows went. " Although I was backstage all the time and never saw the entire show, people seemed to like it. All the groups participating cooperated really well and the theater people were a lot of help, " said Roberts. 42 HOMECOMING FAR LEFT; Jazz vocalist Joyce Wood performs " Patterns in Blue, " accom- panied by Cel Epps on clarinet.

HOMECOMING 43 Dorm advantages worth hassles Living in the men ' s dorms was often the result of a lack of funds, however once there, some realized there were advantages to on- campus living. IVIajor advantages included " coming back to the room after classes and not having to worry about utility bills, " said Steve Long. Long, a four year resident of North Complex, felt " dorm life was extremely valuable because it was a lear- ning experience. " John Privett, transfer student, has lived both on and off-campus. He prefers dorm life. " Liv- ing off-campus was too much of a hassle. Liv- ing in a dorm you ' re always near everything and you also meet a lot of people. " But when hundreds of students live together under one roof there are necessary rules and regulations. Despite the restrictions sophomore Steve McGuire found the dorms offered enough latitude for his lifestyle. " Right now there isn ' t anything that I feel I can do off campus that I can ' t do here, " he said. McGuire was one of the 2,158 students who enjoyed the on-campus facilities and recogniz- ed that getting along in the dorm meant getting to know others on the floor. The atmosphere of the dorms varied from dorm to dorm and floor to floor, yet a general " group " feeling exists. Mike Bond, Phillips Hall sophomore said his floor had lots of tour- naments during the year. Many of the floors were involved in campus-wide intramural sports, parties, and activities between the floors of men and women ' s dorms. Groups of dorm residents were involved in trips and also attended a Royals ' game and the Shrine Circus. A resident assistant in Phillips, Bruce Spidle, said, " I wanted to get my floor as unified as possible. We had floor T-shirts, a haunted house and the usual parties. " As a result, he felt that most of the people on his floor knew each other fairly well. Freshman Doug Carman said one drawback of living in Dieterich was " when you want to study, you can ' t. " There was often too much noise. He admitted, however, that he " enjoyed the noise and havoc and stereos going. " In general, the dorms seemed to be a lot like home. Long said that North Complex had a friendly atmosphere. " It ' s really relaxed and everyone says hi to everyone else. The guys seemed to get along with each other and were usually willing to lower the noise level if someone wanted to study. " Bond felt similarly about Phillips. It ' s where I live, " he said. " I ' m used to it. " One disadvan- tage, though, was the new front door policy. " I ' m paying to live there, but when I have to knock or find security to let me in it doesn ' t make it seem like home. " To help make the rooms more livable and bearable students did their own interior decorating. Plants and posters were in most rooms and some students even brought extra furniture, TV ' s and stereos. Another essential item was the all-important alarm clock. Even with drawbacks and restrictions, most of the dorm residents wouldn ' t move out if given the chance. The people and the closeness to campus buildings were too advan- tageous to give up. 44 DORMITORY LIFE I ; i- K ■ . .M mm ir LEFT: A student desk worker relays the line of a call.

DORMITORY LIFE 45 Home sweet home for dorm residents Although several changes occurred in dorm policy this year, residents still agree that a dorm room became a home away from home. Togetherness became important as students learned to survive on-campus living. Dorm activities gave students a chance to meet each other and become involved. Both educational and recreational programs were presented to aid an extra bonus for dorm residents. Floors formed sports teams and competed against other dorms and floors. Changes in the dorms were numerous. One change that students agreed was a good one was the new 48-hour week-end which was in effect one weekend a month. This allowed residents to have visitors at any time during a weekend. The change in the dorm-key policy was not welcomed by the dorm residents. The work- study students who were forced to work the late night hours were not happy with the new night- hostess policy. " As a night hostess I don ' t like the new policy. I didn ' t like staying up late es- pecially on Sunday nights when I had to work from two to three in the morning, " said Terr! Dixon. Other changes included a repeal of the $10 bike deposit and students were allowed to paint their rooms again. Yet all changes considered, a majority of the students liked dorm living even with all the hassles. Being around people and belonging to a certain dorm made it all worthwhile. There ' s no place like home whether it be a true home or a home away from home. ,•» ' Axkl t B 46 DORM LIFE " LEFT: Barren dorm rooms offer good opportunities to decorate with a per- sonal touch.

DORM LIFE 47 Rush is a big part of Greel life Rush has always been a major part of Greek life and this year sororities and fraternities con- centrated on recruiting new members. One of the reasons rush was so important was because the survival of the groups depended on attracting new members. A whirlwind of parties allowed the rushee to sam- ple Greek life and savor the differences of in- dividual sororities and fraternities. Counselors who answered questions, solved problems and eased frustrations, were a new element of sorority rush. Regina Robertson, a graduate student who frequently visited her Alpha Sigma Alpha sisters said, " I think the idea of rush counselors, girls from different groups living together for a week, prompted friendship between sororities. " Fraternities began rush by sending out in- vitations to " Smokers. " These " Smokers " con- sisted of a meal, a speaker who explained aspects of the fraternity, and entertainment. " The Smoker makes a big impression. After attending, the man has a good idea whether or not he wishes to join, " said Tom Lancaster, Sigma Tau Gamma president. Becoming a Greek required more than just attending social functions and choosing a favorite organization. Standards had to be met. " Only those who were at least second semester freshmen taking nine hours or more and holding a 1.75 grade point average were con- sidered, " said John Moore, Tau Kappa Epsilon president. Another factor for admittance to both sororities and fraternities was congeniality with actives and other pledges. A quota of girls was selected from those par- ticipating in rush. This year ' s maximum of 26 was the highest ever. Even after bids were given and accepted, the rushees had to survive pledgeship. White glove inspections, sleepless nights, and line drills characterized Hell Week for the fraternities. " Hell Week proves you want to be in a frater- nity, " emphasized Lancaster. Robertson said that many pledge duties such as opening doors and waiting on actives have been discontinued. Pledge meetings and study hours were still enforced and sorority pledge classes learned the history of their organiza- tion, the Greek alphabet and requirements for becoming active. The end of pledgeship mark- ed finalization of a commitment and the begin- ning of a new pattern of life. 48 GREEK LIFE LEFT: Phi Mu ' s working on their prize- winning float.

What many students considered the good life included pay- ing rent, utility bills, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and many times landlord-apartment hassles. Student housing in Maryville included at least eight apartment complexes and in- numerable private apartments. The average complex apartments were simila r to College Gardens, unfurnished with beige walls and brown carpet; nothing to write home to Mom about. Trailers, attics and basements also housed students with rent ranging from $40 to $150. There were advantages to living off campus. For many renters, the freedom from dorm rules and regulations was the biggest advantage. Students enjoyed the privileges of having to break up at midnight. Other advantages to living away from the dorms were privacy, additional space, and no false fire alarms in the wee hours of the mor- ning. Also by escaping the blaring stereos and radios of the dorm neighbors, students found it easier to study in off-campus homes. However along with the good was the bad. Many college students were too busy to keep up with the responsibilities that went with apart- ment living. Dishes piled up in an already over- flowing kitchen sink, dusting was sometimes neglected for months and dirt became per- manently intact in the bathtub. Many times the off-campus dweller found his free time taken up by house-cleaning chores. However, many students also missed the social life and activities of the dorms. The com- munity Johns provided an opportunity for students to meet many people but those who didn ' t live in the dorm felt they made closer, if fewer, friends in their off-campus surrounding. Cooking was an advantage or a disadvan- tage depending on who did it. " I tried to eat on campus for convenience, " said Roger Charley. But Sandi Long had a different opinion. " My cooking was better than cafeteria food, " she said. Buying the food to prepare those good meals was a strain on the budget unless one happened to win Hy-Vee ' s " Let ' s Go to the Races " campaign. Whatever the reason— -marriage, money, freedom or fancy— students lived off-campus and for many the extra privileges were worth the extra responsibilities and apartment hassles. OFF-CAMPUS LIVING 51 Variety of activities benefit tine students Offering entertainment for students was an important function of some campus groups. Student Union Board began with a well- attended outdoor dance featuring " Liquid Fire. " Other dances Included " Bullett " for Homecoming and " Madgic " during the fall. The combined efforts of " Blackberry Winter " and " Starbird " highlighted the Christmas dance while the 24-hour Dance-A-Thon for Muscular Dystrophy provided another unusual event. Coffee houses were one more type of program designed for students. Musically, they ranged from a piano solo by Laurie Amend to a bluegrass band, " Cedar Creek. " The " Walkenhorst Brothers " drew one of the largest crowds. " It was a flattering experience, " said Bob Walkenhorst. " Both the attendance and response were very good, " Besides musical presentations, a comedian and a poet also appeared. John Roarke per- formed as a member of Carson and Company and Nikki Giovanni read her poetry as a part of Black Week Activities. 52 DANCES COFFEEHOUSES RIGHT: Bullett ' s fast motion on the drums and the guitar keep the crowd moving at Hof.iecoming.

Flash Cadillac and the Continen- tal Kids cruised into town bringing with them a breath of nostalgia. The band was not chosen as usual from a student survey, but through a request made to KDLX radio. Lisa Gates, Union Board member, followed-up on the suggestion and booked the group because, " They were going to be in the area, could be obtained inexpensively and their show provided variety. " Students received the group warmly and gave them a standing ovation and called for more. Pop star Oliver proved that out-of-sight does not necessarily mean into obscurity and Bill Oliver Swofford showed this when he appeared last year in a performance at Horace Mann. It had been over three years since he recorded " Good Morning Starshine, " yet his appearance showed that he had not lost touch with his audiences. Oliver had spent the past few years " on the road, " playing nightclubs, bars, and colleges. His solo performance revealed candid anec- dotes and humorous tunes picked up on the nightclub circuit. The audience joined in on his best-known hits, " Good Morning Starshine " and " Jean.

Hayes, Healy star in Harvey Excitement filled the air when Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy arrived on campus to guest star in " Harvey. " " We are going home with an awfully nice feeling about everyone at this university, " said Peter. " The group is a very, very fine bunch of kids ... all of them. " The couple chose to do " Harvey " because the play suited them and the characters were challenging. " We look for challenges, " said Mary. " ' Harvev ' was one and we found it fascinating. " Even though the play was a challenge, the couple agreed the premiere was a success. However, the audience ' s reaction to parts of the play startled Peter. " ' Harvey ' is loaded with laughs and when you ' re rehearsing it ' s hard to predict where those laughs are going to come, " he said. " Some of them stunned me opening night and I was completely baffled. That has a tendency to throw the lines out of my head because I think— my God, what are they laughing at? " But getting laughs isn ' t all that easy. Being a professional actor is a demanding 24-hour-a- day job. " Even in your sleep, you ' ll sit bolt upright in bed and say— oh my God, I forgot that en- trance, " said Peter. " It ' s a terrifying thing. And when you ' re adrift up there on the stage, it ' s just you and God. " Peter and Mary seemed to ' have their act together ' for " Harvey " though. For those who saw the play, the appearance of the two stars was a first-in-a-life-time experience. Those who missed the play may still be in luck; it could appear on another college cam- pus. " Because of the economy, theatre is going towards the universities, because they can af- ford it. No one can afford to put on a big production and have the critics close it after opening night, " said Mary. Will Peter and Mary appear in " Harvey " again? Peter and Mary expressed their desire to travel with the play. However, it was an elaborate production with 1 2 actors. Peter felt it would be hard to take " Harvey " to a supper club and find ten other actors who compliment each other. Nevertheless, the two stars had plenty of compliments to pass out to NWMSU ' s cast and crew of " Harvey. " " They were a devoted group and everyone worked hard, " said Mary. " What was exciting to me, was that each of the cast had something to do with setting it up — hammering, sawing, pain- ting — it was terrific. " Peter was amazed with the quality of the set used in the production. He felt professionals in New York would be envious of that particular set. Despite their elaborate background in show business, this was the first time the actors played in " Harvey. " But Peter had always been interested in the play and recalled the first time he saw the production. " I saw ' Harvey ' on Broadway, the night before I was shipped overseas in 1944. Frank Fay was Elwood P. Dowd, and he contributed to its success. They actually had a man in a mechanical rabbit suit and Fay knew that was wrong. After the closing performance he told Miss Chase, who wrote " Harvey, " about it. He convinced her it was destroying her play, and he was right. The audience would have no em- pathy, because they would have seen a mechanical rabbit instead of their own rabbit. And secretly, everybody has a " Harvey " , it ' s an otherself. " Agreeing with Peter, Mary added that the play and characters were full of hidden values. In fact. Mary ' s character, Veta Simmons, became her favorite character of all those she has portrayed. Peter and Mary have acted together and separately on stage, television, radio and movies. But what they really enjoy is doing the night club circuit. They ' ve performed in every top club in America. The audience was fortunate to get a taste of that act after each performance of " Harvey. " The musical-comedy vignette gave them a chance to show their real selves and " do their thing " before the audience. Even though the stars " do their thing " well, they agreed that certain factors were involved in breaking into the business. " I don ' t think one has to look into someone else ' s talents to know how to get into the business, " said Mary. " You have to start right where you are and assess your capabilities. " The advice passed on by the husband-wife team certainly played a factor in their success. Their winning formula has contributed to 36 years together in show business and in their marriage. " We ' ve always said, the family who plays together, stays together, " said Peter. " It is rewarding to stay together in this particular, emotionally-upsetting business. " PETER LIND HAYES MARY HEALY 57 Poems, witches, war fill show bill Summer theater, attempting something different, presented a lyceum series involving " The World of Carl Sandburg " and the rural- urban environment of Northwest Missouri. The open-air production, which was financed by a $1,000 grant from the Missouri Committee for the Humanities, was held in Chautauqua Park and was moderated by Dr. Robert Bohlken. The production focused on the poetry and prose of Sandburg. Four area speakers localized Sandburg ' s readings by discussing the humanistic and social responsibilities of northwest Missouri. Working in the outdoors had certain disad- vantages for the cast and crew. While they worked on the set, sunburns, win d and rain hindered its completion. According to Bob Gately, student in the Interpreter ' s class which presented the lyceum, some students camped out all night to guard the set. Emiyn Williams ' three-act thriller, " A Murder Has Been Arranged, " was the second produc- tion of the summer. The play was written with a 1930 ' s setting, but the Mystery Production class updated it to a more modern time and changed the setting from the St. James Theater in London to the University ' s Charles Johnson Theater. The fall season got underway with a well- attended production, " Dark of the Moon. " Centering on the supernatural, the play saw the moon darken for John, the witch boy during the year he tried to become a human. Freshman Kerry Bunker and Mary Kay McDermott starred as tragic lovers in the Speech and Theater Department ' s play. David Shestak directed a cast of 34 in this tale of the superstitions and culture of the mountain people. Although student reaction to the play was generally enthusiastic, the play was not without its problems. Finding enough people to work steadily on the set which wasn ' t completely finished until opening night was a concern. " It was the lighting that did a lot for the show, " said stage manager Richard Morrison. " It kept the audience ' s eyes. " Several colors came and went behind the players, but the moon didn ' t show until the last line of the play when John said, " Look at the moon! " and he became a witch again. The four witches, played by Teresa Elder, Linda Grimes, Jody Searcy and Ella Slaughter, probably had the most difficult parts. The witches were motionless on the stage from the time the doors opened into Charles Johnson Theater until they began their lusty dance which opened the play. No curtains were pulled, so they stayed on stage between scenes, during the intermission and until the audience had left the auditorium.

A family that suffered the loss of their son through the brutal pains of war. Although " Summertree " was definitely an in- dictment against war, there were moments of gladness and joy, of love and peace, as the audience travelled with the dying soldier through memories of happier times. Jon Kruse played the role of the Young Man which required sudden changes of mood and situation. Young Todd Schultz, 11-year-old son of the director. Dr. Charles Schultz, applied his boyish enthusiasm, playing the role of the Young Boy. Some scenes were seen through the view- point of his parents (Ella Slaughter and Rick Morrison) and others through his sweetheart (Caria Scovill). According to Schultz, there were many uni- que points about " Summertree. " " The play itself was episodic; it jumped around from scene to scene with no logical connection of time. The play held together through mood, " said Schultz. " The important thing about ' Summertree ' was the overall at- mosphere and involvement of the audience. " With over 450 people attending the four shows, Schultz felt the cast " pulled off a very successful production. " Another fall production presented by Alpha Psi Omega was " Once Upon a Clothesline. " The play was a Children ' s Theater presenta- tion that was totally student produced and directed. None of the characters in the play were human. " That was the difficult part; imagining being a grasshopper. " said Dale Starnes. With the audience being mostly children, the cast felt they were more responsive to their ac- tions.

Black Week features noted poet Black Culture Week was highlighted by a variety of activities and speakers including nationally known poet Nikki Giovanni. Coordinator of the event, Linda Lyman, said that the week was designed to explain and il- lustrate the various aspects of Black Culture in- cluding art, education, music and lifestyle. To start the week ' s festivities, the ' " Ray Man- ning Singers, " a seven-voice group from Kan- sas City, presented a concert of gospel music. Another musical event was the KDLX remote which was broadcast live from Harambee House. KDLX provided a variety of contests and prizes for those in attendance. Offering an educational viewpoint, was a lec- ture by Robert Roane, Equal Opportunity Of- ficer for Department of Health, Education and Welfare Region 7. In his speech, Roane en- couraged students to make their education a worthwhile experience. " Education is the root of the problem, " said Roane. " Students should make something out of their education and not just make up the enrollment figures. " Noted poet Nikki Giovanni also lectured to the students. Giovanni has received several awards for her poetry and holds honorary doc- torates from five colleges. In her poetry readings, Giovanni offered ad- vice to her readers. " You must do what you think is important the way you think it ' s impor- tant, being trapped neither by the past of your people nor your future personal hopes, " said Giovanni. To close out the week ' s activities, two dances were held, a disco-dance on Friday and a semi- formal dance on Saturday. Throughout the week a cultural exhibit was presented in the Harambee House by the Nigerian students. They displayed clothing, jewelry, sculptures and hand crafted musical instruments.

Caldwell eturned as guest conductress for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra concert. The crowd of 2,500 called Caldwell back hree times, with ovations at the conclusion of ler Missouri debut. Caldwell brought Lamkin Gymnasium the alent, creativity and depth that earned her the pportunity to be the first woman ever to con- uct the New York Metropolitan Opera Com- pany. At the intermission of the program, lames Cain, manager of the St. Louis Symphony said, " It is a great tribute to the St. Louis Symphony that we have this opportunity pay homage to Sarah Caldwell in her home own tonight. " The concert climaxed the day declared ' Sarah Caldwell Day in Missouri " by Governor Joseph Teasdale. Mayor Marvin Slagle also iroclaimed it, " Sarah Caldwell Day in laryville. " Earlier in the day, Caldwell and her mother, lrs. Carrie Margaret Alexander, were honored It a luncheon. Then, University President Robert P. Foster welcomed Caldwell, founder of her own Boston Dpera Company. Foster presented her with an NWMSU Citation of Achievement , an award similiar to an honorary degree. Master of Ceremonies David Shestak gave Maryvillian childhood friends an opportunity to recall publicly, their memories of Caldwell. The luncheon provided an opportunity for Caldwell to receive honors too. Among these was the announcement of the Sarah Caldwell Music Scholarship, a certificate of honor by the Nodaway Arts Council, and the naming of Sarah Caldwell as the " Hidden Heroine " by Maryville Girl Scout Troop 306. Then it was Caldwell ' s turn to respond and she joked about her " eccentric image. " " Of course I ' m eccentric, " she once told a reporter, " aren ' t you? " The response came as she discounted rumors that she wore slippers when she conducted and that once she spent the night sleeping in the theater aisle. " It hurt me initially, " she said, " but I ' ve regained my sense of humor and I just ignore it now. " She gave her thanks to the press, who she felt contributed to the development of her career, and then she was off to rehearsal. The home town girl who has become world famous for her imaginative talent and sensitive direction of opera and symphonic orchestras, did in fact come home.

SARAH CALDWELL 65 Different philosophies and new scholastic at- titudes set the pace for renovated academic programs. The English department offered a new 36-hour Journalism degree to add a more practical outlook to the existing program. The Home Economics department offered a master of science degree and the vocational Agricultural department added a new teaching certification program. A new administration attempted to open up lines of communication between students and faculty. Dr. John Mees became vice president of student development and an organized flow of communication resulted. A special contact was achieved as students and instructors sur- passed the usual classroom relationship. Students, faculty members, and administrators together strived to make the university work for all. The contact was made and education became more than just a mere idealistic con- cept. CADEMICS 67 Traditions, new president return Changes are constant, and with the coming of the new university president, Dr. B. D. Owens, there was no exception. He came to campus with many new ideas including reviving university tradition. Dr. Owens was pleased to return to his alma mater as president. He considered this institu- tion one of the best. He said " If anyone were to look at what ' s happening to our graduates, they would see that this institution is a quality- oriented institution. " While the university had good points, some improvements still needed to be made. Dr. Owens said " We need to allocate more funding to the academics in the institution in order to help people do their jobs better. " Students who didn ' t complete their college education were also of concern. " Ou r retention rate should be improved. Too many students are coming in the front door and going out the back. Perhaps part of this problem may be due to the fact that this institution has not emphasiz- ed student development, " said Dr. Owens. The reorganization of the facilities in the Ad- ministration Building was an initial step. This was an attempt to get student-related offices in one general area. There were more programs within the residential halls and an increase in R.A. activities. Since students themselves are an important part of any university. Dr. Owens was in favor of student involvement. " Wherever student in- volvement can be helpful, that ' s where we ' ll certainly be using it. " As well as being important to the university. Dr. Owens said, " Student Involvement is part of the tradition of NWMSU. " Since " tradition is a very important asset, " Dr. Owens tried to revive other former university policies. Tradition could be seen, for example, in the Homecoming ring- ing of the " Walk-out Day " bell and the creation of a university mace. 68 PRESIDENT OWENS ' ' ' :-rM The university formed a complicated en- vironment for tlie president. Dr. Owens, hovi ever, found rew ards from his position. " You do not, in the presidency, see the immediate rew ards lil e you do in the classroom. You see a broader spectrum of success such as opening new doors and horizons for people. " While Dr. Owens ' job was important to him, his family also played a major role in his life. A member of a close family including his wife. Sue, and two sons. Brent and Kevin, Dr. Owens spent time participating in family group ac- tivities. " We have a lot of common interests, " said Dr. Owens. Some of their ventures included replanting orange trees, building a fence and restoring cars such as a 1931 Chevrolet and a 1955 Mercedes race car. " We ' ve taken on things that we really have no skills in knowing how to do, except to read and study and figure out how to make them work. That way we all make mis- takes together. " Moving to a rural environment required some adjustments for the entire family. Many conveniences such as accessibility to major air- ports were lost. However advantages such as cleaner air and more freedom for Kevin and Brent were gained. " The down-to-earth quality of the people here is a big plus, " said Mrs. Owens. As the family made changes to fit into the new lifestyle, they gave Dr. Owens the support he needed to take on the responsibilities of be- ing this university ' s eighth president. For Kevin and Brent it was a move to a ne w home, but for Mr. and Mrs. Owens it was a return to their original homes and alma mater.

' 55 alumnus achieves presidency " Join with me, lend me your assistance; grant us the courage and wisdom; pray for the divine guidance of our Creator to swell the tide of our University and take it at the flood to its deserved fortune, " said Northwest Missouri State University ' s eighth president Dr. B. D. Owens as he concluded his inauguration speech. Dr. Owens ' Inauguration was marked by a week of memorable activities. The theme of the week was " The University ' s Heritage: Margin for Excellence, " and the activities followed the theme and emphasized the University ' s 72-year heritage. Focused on prominent NWMSU alum- ni and Northwest Missourians, the event brought to campus a wide array of local, state, regional and national experts to give the week a decided educational flavor. Inauguration week began when area churches participated in bell-ringing ceremonies at noon on Sunday, November 13. Condensed in the week were academic sym- posia, with national and regional authorities composing the several panels, dramatic productions, music concerts, art exhibits and banquets. Symposium speakers included Col. Harlan Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken; Honorable Thomas F. Eagleton, U.S. Senator from Missouri; Dr. William Muse, special assis- tant executive deputy commissioner, U. S. Of- fice of Education, Washington D.C.; Dr. Arthur Mallory, Missouri Commissioner of Education; James C. Kirkpatrick, Secretary of State, state of Missouri; and Dr. J.D. Hammond, professor of finance and insurance at Pennsylvania State University. The week came to it ' s climax with the Inaugural ceremony on November 1 8 in Lamkin Gymnasium with the presentation by the Color Guard. Following the Color Guard was Lee Hageman carrying the University mace symbolizing authority in ecclesiatical and academic processions. The mace, designed and created especially for the Inauguration by Philip VanVoorst, Lee Hageman and Robert Sunkel of the art department, was made of walnut pewter, silver sheets and 14K gold strips. VanVoorst followed Hageman carrying the chain-of-office medallion. To open the ceremony, the University Symphonic Band performed the " Star Spangl- ed Banner " and the Reverend McDavid Fields, vicar of St. Paul ' s Episcopal Church delivered the invocation. Following the invocation was the introduction of the Board of Regents and the presentation of the Distinguished Service Awards, to Everett W. Brown, E. Thomas Coleman, Harding C. Cox, W.N.C. Dawson, James Kirkpatrick, Judge J. P. Morgan, William F. Phares, C.F. Russell, James L. Russell, and Garvin Williams. Concluding the Inaugural celebration was the official swearing-in ceremony. President Owens, 42, first alumnus to serve as president, took the oath of office from Missouri Supreme Court Judge J. P. Morgan and E.D. Geyer, president of the Board of Regents. The Chain of Office was then placed around President Owens ' neck. During his speech. Dr. Owens pointed out that change was occurring at Northwest Missouri State University and the institution ' s objectives and priorities will be further defined in the future. Following the Inaugural ceremony ap- proximately 500 people representing faculty, students, local businessmen, area politicians and retired faculty attended a luncheon in the Union Ballroom. While the Inaugural week paid homage to the past and present perhaps its most important aspect was to rededicate the University to the challenges of the future. 70 INAUGURATION V y.

INAUGURATION 71 Board launches renovation plan Subjects of change, as well as routine matters, filled the agenda of each Board of Regents meeting. Changes concerning the installation of Presi- dent Owens and other administrative ad- justments were viewed favorably by the Board. E.D. Geyer, board president, said of Dr. Owens, " We are the board that selected him. He ' s our choice and we ' re eager to see him succeed. We ' re supportive of him and think he is doing a fine job. " Another key administrative change was the promotion of Dr. Mees from assistant provost to vice president of student development. " The decision to promote Dr. Mees was made in May 1977, " said Dr. Harold Poynter, board representative from Maryville. " The Board was in agreement and felt Dr. Mees would be capable in the position, " he con- tinued. Establishing a graduate center on the cam- pus of Missouri Western, in neighboring St. Joseph, Mo., was a step in promoting educational cooperation economically. Accor- ding to Dr. Poynter, the center appeared to be a good move. " We are anxious to be of service to higher education in Northwest Missouri, " he said. Despite efforts to thwart inflation, the board decided to increase housing fees to offset utility costs. Careful consideration went into the measure. " We are aware of the financial load that ob- taining a college education places on parents and students, " said Dr. Poynter. No other fee hikes were foreseen. Governor Teasdale ' s proposed budget cut for the university was somewhat of a disap- pointment. " We didn ' t want to have our budget cut, " said Geyer. " However, we realize the governor has lots of agencies to fund. Hopeful- ly, the cuts can be restored. Sometimes we have been successful in having cuts restored, " added the representative from Trenton, Mo. Dr. Poynter took a hopeful perspective, stating optimism concerning the final budget. " This kind of situation develops nearly every year, " he said. Far-reaching renovation plans such as im- proving and remodeling Lamkin Gym, repairing the roofs of the Fine Arts, Industrial Arts and Union buildings and acquiring more farm land were discussed. " We try to have renovation in progress constantly, " said Geyer. " Our present concern, completing the administration building, is awaiting further bids. " ABOVE: Board of Regents President E.D.

ROBERT BUSH Acting as overall chairman for the Inaugura- tion was only one responsibility Dr. Robert Bush, assistant to the president, faced during the year. Planning of the Inaugural week occupied much of Dr. Bush ' s time. " Hopefully out of the Inauguration came a new thrust for the Univer- sity, " said Dr. Bush. Routine was not a word associated with Dr. Bush ' s job. It was impossible to know all the responsibilities he would be given. The sudden resignation of the physical plant director resulted in Bush assuming the position until a replacement could be found. People were vital to the success of Dr. Bush ' s job. In addition to the " great group of people " he worked with. Bush ' s family provided him needed support. " I have a great family, otherwise, I wouldn ' t enjoy my job so much. " Dr. Bush felt one reason he received strong support was because his family was proud of the institution too. Even though Dr. Bush had to forfeit much of his leisure time to do a good job for the univer- sity, he was enthusiastic about his work. " It ' s a fantastic job. You get tired, you sleep well, but In the morning you ' re ready to go. " DR. GEORGE ENGLISH Planning the academic future of the Universi- ty was a major responsibility Dr. George English accepted when he filled the new posi- tion of vice president of academic affairs and dean of faculties. " Fundamentally the job was largely one of coordination and planning. A great deal was done in planning to find out where this institu- tion is going to be in five or six years, " said Dr. English. Dr. English also coordinated the instruction of the university, made personnel decisions on the academic level, authorized curriculum changes, and coordinated academics with other areas in the university. One of Dr. English ' s goals was improving the area of faculty development and curriculum. " The faculty needed assistance in using new teaching styles and approaching problems from different perspectives, " he said. One of the changes Dr. English planned was to broaden the curriculum. " There are areas this institution should get into in order to keep its horizons broad, " he said. " One of the things we ' re looking at closely is what ' s happening in the area of health education. Nursing education has been started here but we need to decide 74 ADMINISTRATION where we ' re going to go with it. " When Dr. English did find spare time, he pur- sued his hobbies. " I ' m a Civil War buff, " said Dr. English. " I ' m interested in the social and cultural problems in the south and north during the Civil War, military battles, foreign relations, just anything about the war. " He has pursued his interest in his travel and has visited two- thirds of the Civil War battlefields. DEAN PHIL HAYES Eight years in one place allows a person to see many changes.and Dean of Students Phil Hayes has seen more than his share. Hayes came to campus in the fall of 1970. During that time, the biggest change he has seen has been a relaxation of the Housing rules. " Hall government was rather sketchy when I got here, " he said, " now, we have an effective governmental body in IRC and students take a stronger hand in determining regulations. " Administrative structural changes such as ti- tle switches and duties in particular jobs and this year the arrival of the new president, have all added to the administrative shuffling Hayes has seen. In addition to serving as administrative head of the Health Center, the Union, Student Ac- tivities, and Harambee House, Hayes super- vised personnel files, coordinated the judicial conduct program and conducted exit inter- views with students withdrawing from college. When not busy with his myriad of job respon- sibilities, Hayes enjoys carpentry, traveling and supporting athletic programs. Hayes ' carpentry skill is seen in his renovating several older homes in the area and in the design and construction of Bobby Bear- cat ' s cage in the student union. " Carpentry is really a kind of therapy form, " said Hayes. " I find after I ' ve worked on something with my hands I ' m very relaxed. " Traveling is another form of relaxation for Hayes ' family, and occasionally they take ad- vantage of programs offered by the University. In 1975, they went to Mexico with a University tour and added that to the 48 of the 50 states, Canada and eleven European countries they have toured. In addition to being an avid Bearcat sup- porter, Hayes has co-directed the Girls ' State Softball tournament held in Maryville the last two years, and helped the Maryville Boosters ' Athletic Club organize busses to away ballgames. -( I BELOW: Dean of Students Phil Hayes keeps busy handling the administrative responsibilities of worl ing with students.

Their labor helps student DONALD HENRY Since the time he attended this institution In 1949, Donald Henry, treasurer, said the biggest change was the increased freedom students are allowed today. " There was more structure in 1949, " said Henry, " and student attitudes are more relaxed now. " Henry ' s duties as treasurer included the University farm, overseeing data processing, personnel, external reports and accounting, the bookstore, security, payroll, cashiering and purchasing, and preparing the annual budget report. Relaxed and leaning back In his chair, he agreed his duties had increased over his previous position as business manager. But he enjoyed working for the students in his new responsibilities. " Our number one priority is to continually Im- prove the quality of service to the students, " he said. Henry cited housing as an area needing improvement. " We would like to provide ser- vices in the dorms to make them more desirable to students. The school has a respon- sibility to maintain the dorms with the lifestyle the students want. " The University was more than just a job for Henry. It was a part of his way of life and his family shared his interest. He and his wife, Marilynn, met while attending here and all three of their children have pursued degrees at NWMSU. DR. JOHN PAUL MEES Working together was the key Dr. John Mees, vice-president for student development, used to open communication lines between students and his staff. " I wanted the staff to develop a feeling of partnership when working with the students, " Dr. Mees said. Although he had been with the University for seven years, this was Dr. Mees ' first year to work in the newly-created position involving student development. The position was developed because of newly-selected presi- dent Dr. B.D. Owens ' concept of student development on campus. " Many conferences were held between myself and Dr. Owens, " said Mees. " As a result of the conferences, the position was molded and developed until we arrived at the position I hold. " Dr. Mees was involved with a variety of duties focusing on student development. " My basic responsibility was to supervise, coordinate and offer leadership for all areas that provided stu- dent development, " he said. Those areas in- cluded the registrar, admissions, financial aids, placement, counseling, health services, in- tramurals. Union Board, food service, text books, and student housing. One tangible change Mees was involved in was the relocation of the financial aids, registrar, placement and career planning of- fices to the second floor of the Administration Building to provide easy access and organized flow of communication for students. After a day filled with several campus ac- tivities. Dr. Mees did not have much free time on his hands. There ' s little time left for me and the family and for my own personal development. " said Dr. Mees. His family con- sisted of his wife, two daughters, and his English sheepdog. Even though his extra time was limited. Dr. Mees enjoys spending time with his family. He tried to involve his family with University- related activities so they could spend more time together. " I feel it ' s an important part of their growing up to be around people. " DR. LEON MILLER Providing graduate courses to meet student needs was stressed by Dr. Leon Miller, dean of graduate studies. " We ' re in a unique position because the closest graduate school is 100 miles away. We have to study the kinds of programs accessible to students in the area and meet their needs, " said Dr. Miller. To keep up with changing needs. Dr. Miller made continuous changes in his program. " We phased out some programs because the need wasn ' t there, " said Dr. Miller, " and we combined and consolidated others to better meet the demands of the students. " Although Dr. Miller spent most of his time working, he found time to spend with his family. " Any administrator has problems finding as much time as he would like for personal ac- tivities, but I don ' t feel my family has been slighted, " said Dr. Miller. " We try to do special things together. " When he did have spare time. Dr. Miller en- joyed fishing, gardening, playing bridge and sports of all kinds.

With this in mind, the Library Science department changed their image, and stressed skills that would be helpful in working with people. Students learned story- telling skills, gave reviews, selected children ' s literature and constructed displays. To improve teaching facilities, the depart- ment moved to Horace Mann. The move enabl- ed an emphasis to be placed on teaching and learning. Fifty students, an increase over last year ' s enrollment, participated in on-the-job experiences with elementary children, and their instructors. Senior Roberta Campbell noted a change in story telling class. " Students were permitted to observe and join in on each Friday ' s tales for primary children, " she said. The students performed stories in the Horace Mann Library, and it provided a more realistic atmosphere. The move also benefited students in the practical aspects. " The library science depart- ment had a paperback collection that kids checked out, and so we gained experience from that, " said senior Cindy Petersen. " There were also more audio visual aids available, " she said. Classroom experience was important as the possibility of computer science became a part of library science. James Johnson, department chairman, believed computers wouldn ' t com- pletely replace books, but would be useful in storing data.

' Sweating it out— not always fun Misconceptions in the past have led students to believe that classes in the physical education department were all fun and games. However, the men and women majoring in physical education found out differently when enrolled in Kinesiology, Anatomy and Physiology. When students headed for their classes in the women ' s physical education department, they saw new faces in Martindale Gym. Laurie Meyers replaced Dr. Glenda Guilliams as track and cross country coach. Pam Stanek took over responsibilities of coaching Bearkitten volleyball and tennis. The department also added a teaching assis- tant to their staff, Barbara Schendel, a certified athletic trainer. Schendel filled her day with a variety of duties. " I taught two tennis classes in the fall and spring and worked with all of the women ' s athletic teams, " said Schendel. " I also am attending school to obtain my masters degree in counseling and guidance. " According to Barbara Bernard, chairperson of the Department of Physical Education for Women, curriculum changes were discussed in the fall. " We want the students to have a little more chance to choose the courses they want to take, " said Bernard. This would give 125 women physical education majors a chance for a more individualized program. Bernard also said that there are plans to up- date the courses offered to non-physical education majors who need to fulfill their activi- ty requirements. " We want to help the college students gain skills so they ' ll be able to par- ticipate in and enjoy sports when they get out of school. " Renae Denton, a junior home economics major, agreed that she benefits from the activity classes. " My activity classes have improved my all-around athletic skills and have given me a chance to meet people who have different ma- jors, " said Denton. In the men ' s department, there was an in- crease in the number of physical education majors. " Class enrollment in the department was up a little from last year, " said Dr. Burton Richey, Chairman of the Men ' s Physical Educa- tion Department. There were 158 majors and 110 minors in the men ' s department. A new faculty member was added to the staff, Richard Alsup. He assumed the duties as head cross country coach and assistant track coach. Dr. Earl Baker was assigned full-time duties concerning the area of recreation. He became the adviser for the recreation majors and accepted more responsibility with the recrea- tion classes. In the fall, the university requested $1,295,- 000 for renovation of Lamkin Gym. " We are in hopes of getting a new pool so we can expand our aquatic program, " said Dr. Richey. Richey added that the key to success for his department has been the " willingness of the faculty and staff to work for the students and their concern for student welfare.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION 81 Experience . . . the key to teaching Education was one of the largest departments on campus with elementary education having the largest enrollment. Elementary graduates averaged 95-100 for the past years. Realizing that experience is an important part of education, the elementary education department gave students practical ex- perience. Beginners in the program worked one hour or more a week for one block in Horace Mann grade school classrooms. They combined theory with practice and stayed in- volved in classrooms throughout the program up to their final learning experience of student teaching. Judy Kirby, an elementary education major with a special education specialization said " It ' s really good that we had opportunities to work with the children first hand although I don ' t think you ever get enough experience until you actually get out and teach. " Chris Hagedorn, junior physical education major who is working toward an elementary and secondary education teaching degree, said " I think both departments are really quite good. They prepare you to go out and teach by offer- ing a lot of practical experience and discussing problems. " Secondary and elementary departments worked to offer more special education courses. It was a requirement for education majors to take an introduction to special education class. Students in the area of special education were urged to volunteer at the Sheltered Workshop in Maryville and Camp Woodland, a summer camp for the han- dicapped near Albany. Kirby commented about the special educa- tion program. " I ' d like to see more in-depth projects. It seems we just scratched the top. I ' d like to see major and or minor special educa- tion degrees offered. " Another elementary education major with a special education specialization, Cheri Coenen also would have liked to work more with the retarded and learning disability students. She added that she especially found field trips to be a valuable learning experience. Some trips she went on were to the State Hospital in Glenwood, Iowa, Rose Kennedy School in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Area 13 in Treynor, Iowa. " Some of the things they talked about, we had talked about in classes. When we went on these field trips, it made me realize that they really were teaching us something we could use, " said Coenen. Another field trip she attended was to the Diagnostic Clinic and grade school in Albany. " We talked to a Learning Disabilities teacher and he really gave us some valuable information and used tests we ' d been talking about in class, " she said. According to Dean Savage, elementary education chairman, finding a job after gradua- tion was " not as tough as it used to be. " The elementary education department placed near- ly all of its graduates who wanted jobs. " Horace Mann is one reason our placement is so high, " he said. The high placement percentages for the department divisions may have been due to the abundance of teachers in recent years that dis- couraged people from going into teaching, so that now a shortage has developed, said Dr. Roger Epiey, secondary education chairman. It was inevitable that some education majors found out too late that they didn ' t want to teach. National statistics reported that 49-50 percent of accredited teachers left teaching in two years. But the teaching credentials were still useful in other jobs, said EpIey. He added that there was a " broader potential for the secon- dary education person because of the concen- tration in the area. " EpIey also said, " This university has ceased to be a single-faceted institution but the educa- tion departments haven ' t stopped producing excellent teachers.

Business draws student interest Business and economics has been a popular field of study on campus because of the future job possibilities in this area. " Business is a pop- ular course throughout the nation, " said Dr. Elwyn Devore, department chairman. " People are interested in getting into an area in which they can get jobs and there are more jobs in business than in anything else. " The business department had the largest enrollment on campus. There were 1100 to 1200 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the department with only about ten percent of the enrollment involved in teacher education. One of the growing areas in business was Health Services Administration, so the depart- ment was working to establish a comprehen- sive major in that area. " We have proposed a Health Administration Program, " said Dr. Devore. " We have investigated through an oc- cupational study that health will probably be the biggest growth area and the area for health ad- ministrators will be tremendous. This is not for hospitals as much as it will be for nursing homes and health care centers. " Another way the department has expanded was by the addition of a Master of Business Ad- ministration degree which can be acquired by attending classes on weekends for 27 months. Responses have been positive toward the program. " It really helped going to classes on weekends because I can apply It to the organization I work for, " said Rusty Hamilton, a farm consultant who is currently enrolled in the weekend program. Hamilton cited one problem with his studies. " Working full-time, I didn ' t feel like I could spend enough time with class work. " The department has also added two new classes. Word Processing and Advanced In- come Tax, to update the areas of study available. Randy Hillabolt, a business major, felt there was a good variety of classes offered for the students. " They have a good selection of classes but too many of them overlap, " said Hillabolt. Devore felt one of the areas they expanded to keep the department up to date was the ad- dition of new equipment. " We added a memory typewriter and we ' re in the process of purchas- ing new calculating equipment and word processing equipment. " said Dr. Devore. " We ' re well equipped in this department. We have almost all the equipment you would find anywhere. " Sheryl Stephens, a business major, agreed that there was a variety of equipment available but felt " they need to be more up-to-date in their equipment. " Overall there has been a positive reaction from the business students. Teresa Biggerstaff said, " It ' s pretty well organized and it ' s a good program. I like it real well. " Judie Frazie, a senior Office Administration and Education major, agreed that the depart- ment offered a good program. " I think part of the reason freshmen come here is that the Business Department has a reputation for be- ing good. " ABOVE: Virabhai Kharadia lectures on problems in predicting the economy.

" 86 PRACTICAL ARTS A man ' s place is in tine kitchen It ' s not a man ' s world any more. Women ' s liberation brought a sharing of tasks instead of a complete reversal of roles. This has, in a sense, liberated men to enter into secretarial jobs, nursing, and home economics. Mrs. Lenora Stanton, director of nursing, believes men have a lot to offer in the field of rehabilitation therapy. " Women tend to be overly sympathetic; men take a firm hand and keep the patient working, despite discomfort, " stated Stanton. She went on to say that no males were enrolled this year, but four had graduated in the past nine years. " The female students respected these individuals, " she reiterated. Dave Williams received a different reception than the male nurses. Williams, a seven-year veteran of the military, held a government post while earning a degree in office administration. Being surrounded with female classmates put him ill at ease. He felt cramped working in close quarters, sensing an aire of competition. " Girls often inquired about my ability to type over 100 words per minute, " he commented. While Williams essentially believes in equali- ty of the sexes, he also holds the opinion that some places aren ' t suitable for women. " There are some instances where it might not be feasi- ble for a female to accompany her boss; but, a male would have no difficulty, " Williams conjec- tured. He recommended his field to other men saying that " Tremendous chances exist if you have much perseverance. " Gai O ' Dell, who was employed by a former male secretary, spoke favorably of her job. " My employer ' s efficiency made me work harder and I learned to be a better secretary, " she commented. Men enrolled in home economics to better understand domestic life. One man, taking food preparation, pursued a chef ' s career. After taking " Family Relations, " Glenda Helm recommended the class to her husband, Larry. " In the course, we discussed all types of human relationships. " she said. " The instructor viewed marriage realistically, especially the question of having children, " Helm summarized. Glenda plans on operating a nursery school. She would not mind having a male work with her because, " Young children need com- passionate father figures as well as mother figures. Male workers in day-care centers and nursery schools could reduce the authoritarian stereotype children often develop toward men. " Many men continued the pattern of entering formerly feminine occupations. Apparently, open-minded women didn ' t seem to object. They applauded the change as progress. ■1:%- .

The Language arts programs improved language skills and helped individuals learn about themselves and the human experience. Since most students could not graduate without taking an English course, Dr. Carroll Fry, chairman of the department, said that much of the work of the English Department went into preparing courses for the non-major. Students enrolled in English 111 took a pre- test in September, and were referred to the Writing Skills Center if their score indicated they needed additional work. " Step One, " a new program instigated in the Developmental English classes by Dr. Fry and Rose Ann Wallace, was designed to per- sonalize the teaching of English 111. " We wanted to write a textbook that would help students identify with this university, " said Wallace. " Most freshmen feel lost when they first come to college, so we designed a book to try to help them learn to be happier by dealing with things that bother or interest them. " A 36-hour journalism degree was also offered under the English Department. " Our ul- timate goal is to create as realistic an at- mosphere as possible and prepare our students for what they might expect out in the professional world, " said Linda Smith, jour- nalism instructor. I Realistic atmosphere was created through lab classes and student-operated publications, the NORTHWEST MISSOURIAN newspaper and the TOWER yearbook. Barb Guhike, a junior journalism major said, " One of the strong aspects of the program is that you get a lot of practical experience and also get involved in just about every phase of newspaper production. " While the English Department improved language skills, the Foreign Language Depart- ment emphasized the study of several different languages and cultural differences. Serving in his first year as chairman of the Foreign Language Department, Dr. Charles Slattery said, " We hope to appeal to the Liberal Arts students as well as others who wish to look at a culture different from their own. " Besides the existing B.S. and B.A. major and minor undergraduate degrees in Spanish, French and German, several new programs were introduced. The business department and the foreign language department offered bi- lingual secretary and international marketing programs. An international studies program was also offered due to the cooperation of several departments. Wendy Smith, a junior foreign language ma- jor said she liked the program. " It is very ver- satile because it is small. The teachers are a lovely group of people and it ' s easy to arrange schedules. " ABOVE: Foreign language classes allow audio lab sessions. LEFT: Paul Jones discusses the do ' s and don ' t ' s of a term paper. ENGLISH FOREIGN LANGUAGE 89 New classes bring new students " Life is more pleasurable when you un- derstand, " said Dr. Mallory, geology instructor. This year ' s science curriculum reflected a pattern of change which included new subject areas for non-science majors. A new organic chemistry course was added for home economics and agricultural majors. A program about digital electronics was emphasized in the physics department for computer science students. The combined physical science and science education departments offered a summer course on space exploration designed to update elementary and secondary instruc- tors. Physics instructor, Dr. Jim Smeltzer used space materials and speakers from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Houston. Smeltzer kept in touch with NASA and attended educators ' conferences conducted by the organization. He also met personnel from the Voyager and Viking space missions. The NASA materials used were es- pecially helpful in Smeltzer ' s astronomy classes. The astronomy classes were taken by many non-majors, as students seemed to enjoy star gazing despite the occasional 4 a.m. lab time. " It ' s awfully early, but this way I can view the stars and planets instead of just looking at them in a book, " said Roberta NatonI, business ad- ministration major. Changes of scenery highlighted the year for geology students. Beginning classes took a field trip in October to analyze topographical features, sketched their origin and picked up rock and mineral samples from area towns. The trip ' s climax was studying the unique bedrock foundations in Kansas City ' s Crown Center. Some students abandoned the group at- mosphere of classrooms and class field trips and took on individual studies or projects. One such student was Glen Scheer, a senior physics and computer science major. He discovered something that changed his knowledge of light. Scheer built a nitrogen lasar, an instrument which produces ultraviolet light and light in- terference patterns. " The lasar was a machine shop and physics problem to build, but was a real value in chemistry, " he said. Another of Scheer ' s inventions was a com- puter generated hologram. The pattern producing hologram gave students an un- derstanding of lightwaves and optics that set a trend in teaching theories of light. Scheer felt that all students should take physics as a general education course. " I ' d recommend it because it would help students understand nature ' s principles.

Course expansions broaden programs Varying experiences played a nnajor role in preparing social science students for their degrees. Among the many areas which formed the Social Science Department were Geography, Political Science. Sociology-Anthropology, Humanities-Philosophy. Psychology and History. They offered basic courses as core requirements and then allowed students to ex- pand interests by enrolling in other courses that appealed to them. Taking advantage of the wide offerings was senior Renaldo Nizzi. " You learned a lot more. It got tiring to just study one subject. " While this flexability worked well for some, senior Lisa Scott felt more required courses were needed. " In some cases you don ' t have enough background in areas you might have to teach. " she said. The department unified their efforts for the hosting of the Collegiate History Conference. Faculty members played a major role in plan- ning the event, but students were asked to par- ticipate once the conference started. " We used students during the conference for registration, guiding and general help as well as inviting them to attend the sessions, " said Dr. John Harr, History Department chairman.

Recent years evidenced a renewed in- terest in agriculture. " About 40 percent of our graduates are going back to the farm, " said Dr. John Beeks, agriculture department chair- man, " In the sixties, only five to ten percent were returning. " Agriculture classes involved both research and study outside the classroom. All college farms were open for field trips. Marketing students visited terminal markets for grain and stockyards and livestock evaluation classes participated in intercollegiate judging competi- tion. The department also hosted a National Evaluation Conference in April that attracted students from California to New York. Expanded facilities added to the variety of classes and the amount of students accom- modated. The University gained a 155-acre farm adjoining the north farm. An agriculture mechanics laboratory was also added. Industrial arts students also aimed for specialized areas. More students were involved in two-year programs, according to former department chairman, Peter Jackson. A proposal was negotiated to offer an Associate in Applied Science degree for work in the two-year programs. " Since we offer four combinations in this program, it is almost like choosing a ma- jor, " said Dr. Jackson. Certification as a techni- cian was more appealing to some students than a four-year degree. The industrial arts faculty participated in the inaugural symposium and worked with the Maryville Industrial Council to aid the com- munity. Bruce Parmalee, electronics instructor, attended a seminar on micro-processors at which he obtained a KIM-1 processor. " Micro- processors are programmed circuits which could revolutionize industry, " said Parmelee. Plans for the electronics lab allow students to use integrated circuits. " This is the going form of electronics of today, " said Steve Powell, an electronics student involved in lab renovation. " The lab must be up-dated frequently in order to keep students prepared for jobs in today ' s electronics field, " he said. Dr. Jackson, who headed the department for 18 years, retired in January to accept the posi- tion of Associate Dean of Faculty. INDUSTRIAL ARTS AGRICULTURE 95 Speech, fine arts broaden horizons New classes offered students a chance to broaden their creative talents through the Fine Arts Department. A new weaving class was offered by the Art Departnnent. " It was pretty popular when it was first offered, " explained Dr. Philip VanVoorst. Two additional minors in ceramics and jewelry and metal smithing were added too. " The minors were very open-ended and a lot of peo- ple have been picking them up, " said VanVoorst. A short weaving course was also offered last summer. The department had to purchase ad- ditional looms due to the wide interest in the course. No regular courses were offered during the summer. Instead, short courses were offered such as Pewter and Weaving. " The short courses perform a greater service to the area, " said VanVoorst. The Art Department presented a display on the making of the University Mace by Donald Yates, Philip VanVoorst and Lee Hageman. The mace was 42 inches long and weighed 20 pounds. It was made from a combination of modern pewter, gold and silver. The Speech and Theater Department widen- ed their program through the uses of various studies and new offices. The Speech Depart- ment moved to the fourth floor of the ad- ministration Building allowing the broadcast curriculum to expand and remodel. Remodel- ing of the radio and television station increased speech equipment and its availability. In addi- tion, an estimated sixty-thousand dollars worth of speech pathology equipment was ap- propriated. The renovation of the Administration Building presented few problems. " It only messed us up as far as costumes were con- cerned, " said Mr. David Shestak, drama in- structor. The costumes were previously housed on the fourth floor. " We went from three rooms of costumes to one room. " Headed by Dr. Harold Jackson, Northwest ' s musicians displayed their talents. The Bearcat Marching Band, directed by Ernest Woodruff with the assistance of Dick Bateman, per- formed in new uniforms at the fourth playoff game of the Kansas City Royals. The concert band played the processional and recessional at the Inauguration and the chorale did a special number. Both groups joined together in a joint effort for " Song of Democracy.

Bearcats and ' Kittens stood united against opposing teams and did their best to keep the spirit of victory alive and kicking. Although losses occurred, the athletes did their best whether playing a team sport or individual action. Students joined together to support their favorite sport and cheer fellow classmates on. A solid line of support became a strong defen- sive action as the student body shared one common goal for an afternoon or evening at least. Team members trained hard and disciplined themselves throughout the year to attain vic- tory. A new basketball coach added a different approach to the game and team work was the name of the game. Each member of a team became a part of a solid unit. Individual superstars remained at a minimum as everybody who played was a star. 98 SPORTS SPORTS 99 Title slips by ' Cats in last series Leaders in the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association race throughout the spr- ing, the Bearcats had what seenned to be a third conference baseball crown in the past five years slip through their fingers in the last series of the season. The ' Cats, who finished league play at 10-3 and 20-16 overall, dropped one game of a Saturday doubleheader to Northeast Missouri State and along with that loss went the con- ference title. However, rain probably hurt the team more than anything, as five conference games had to be cancelled. Along with the rain, Coach Jim Wasem said " inconsistency had to be one of the biggest dis- appointments of the season, " adding that his team " played exciting baseball most of the year. " For the second-place Bearcats, eight players hit .300 or better and for the first time in NWMSU diamond history, two ' Cats surpassed the .400 figure. Outfielder Dennis Webb, who signed a pro contract with the Kansas City Royals after the season ' s end, came away with his second successive MIAA hitting crown and produced a .487 mark. Joining Webb in the .400 club was the first baseman Steve Frailey, who hit .412. Mark Miller, an outstanding pitcher for the team in two seasons here, also entered the pro ranks at season ' s end, signing with the Califor- nia Angels. Coach Wasem also praised freshman catcher Bill Sobbe, a .393 hitter named the " MIAA Rookie of the Year, " and All-American; seniors Keith Andrews, Art Albin and Bob Peterson; and underclassmen Mark Vansickle and Tom Franke, were also recipients of praise.

Unity helps Kittens beat tlie .500 mark Playing what Coach John Poulson called " the most competitive schedule we ' ve ever played, " the 1977 Bearkitten softballers ended their season with a 19-15 overall record. Although the 15-game loss total was the highest in school history, the Kitten diamond crew did knock off the likes of Kansas, Tarkio and Nebraska-Omaha, all AIAW state cham- pions, during the regular season. MAIAW state competition was held in Maryville in late April. Entering the tournament as a fourth-place favorite, the Bearkittens mov- ed up a notch to take the third-place trophy. A victory over the number-one seeded team, Southwest Missouri State, highlighted the tour- nament for the green-and-white. Coach Poulson expressed pleasure with his team ' s performance at the tournament ' s end, explain- ing, " I can ' t complain about the way the girls performed. They ' re just a great bunch of gals. " Junior shortstop Mary McCord was the team ' s leading hitter at .306, on a team that hit .246. Dianne Withrow, junior leftfielder, moved into the .300 circle (.302), on the season ' s final day. Injuries and illnesses forced a lot of switches for a team that didn ' t struggle to the .500 mark until its 18th game and didn ' t stay over the break-even hump for good until its 21st. Junior Janet Cooksey, looked upon as a mainstay at first base and in the outfield, missed everything between the first and last game with a finger in- jury. The catching was whittled down to senior Trish VanOosbree after April 16, when first, junior Patsy Lipira and then, freshman Teresa Beeler, were sidelined for the remainder of the season. Newcomers Nancy Coughlin, freshman, and Connie McManus, sophomore, gained valuable playing time. individual performances noted by Poulson included the play of McCord, and the perfor- mance of his pitching staff, which included Cin- dy Williams, Sheryl Wurster and Arlene Gruebel. Summing up the season, Beeler commented that she thought the ' Kittens had an " average season. Our strong points were our closeness as a team and a strong infield.

Dennis Webb, a MIAA first-team pick twice during his two-year stint with the Bearcats, was selected by the Kansas City Royals in the 17th round of the free-agent draft conducted last June. He played with the Sarasota Royals in the Gulf Coast League. Mark Miller, a former hurler for the ' Cats, was picked in the same draft, in the 22nd round, by the California Angels. He was assigned to the Idaho Falls Angels of the Pioneer League. For Webb, a two-time MIAA batting cham- pion in as many seasons, the summer was another for batting titles. He took the Gulf Coast League title, hitting at .374 and also led the league in hits with 73. Webb noted that he was fairly pleased with his hitting success, but com- mented, " I wanted to hit .400, but I went through a hitting slump and was for 16 at one time. During his two-year stint at NWMSU, Webb was an outfielder (alternating between left and center), but now he has been moved to the se- cond base position because " there ' s a better chance to move up in the organization at se- cond. The Royals are loaded with talent in the outfield, but they ' re kind of weak at second base, " noted the 6-0, 175 pound, left-handed- hitting guy. He likes the second base position but he said that the position requires " more concentration. " The physical education major reported in March to the Royals spring training camp in Sarasota. Miller, like Webb, also had a good initial season. Throughout the season. Miller pitched 15 times and started 13 games. " My record was only 2-2. but I had four other games I pitched where the manager didn ' t let anyone pitch over six or seven innings because he didn ' t want to hurt anyone ' s arm in their first year. I ' d leave games in the sixth or seventh inning with a 6-2 lead or with a three-or-four-run lead, and the relievers would come in and either lose or let the games get tied up. I could ' ve been 6-2 just as easy, " Miller explained. Miller said that he has " slightly " changed his pitching style since signing with the Angels. " I ' m throwing harder now because I smoothed out my motion some, " mentioned Miller, adding that he had improved his curve ball " about 100 percent. " He noted that the plays used in professional baseball are " basically the same, but the hitters are much more aggressive and so are the base runners. " Miller, who pitched 67 strikeouts in 47 in- nings during the summer, reported that he was pleased with the way everything went during his first season, and added that he " learned an aw- ful lot. " Spring ball also started for Miller in March when he reported to Holtville, Calif, for three- and-one-half weeks. After his training there, he was to be assigned to the Midwest or the Texas Leagues. Both Miller and Webb agreed they wouldn ' t mind considering baseball as a career. Miller liked what he had seen of professional baseball and Webb summed it up with " You ' re doing something you love to do and it really isn ' t work at all. " MILLER WEBB 105 I Thinclads race at record pace School records fell in almost every event when the 77 Bearkittens hit the track. Even though ten previous award winners didn ' t return to the team, the ' Kittens were able to post a record-setting season. " We had a lot of quality and not much quan- tity, " said Head Track Coach Dr. Glenda Guilliams, and proving this was something that came easily for the Bearkittens. In the team ' s first appearance of the indoor season at CMSU, senior Ann Kimm and junior Linda Martens broke two school records. Kimm ' s time in the two-mile was 22.6 seconds faster than the previous school mark, and Martens topped her record in the high jump by three inches. Kimm led the team throughout the season by posting first place finishes in nearly every meet. Guilliams felt the team improved over the course of the season. " Most of the reason the kids didn ' t do well at the beginning of the season is because I paced them to do better toward the end, " commented the coach. The ' Kittens definitely did their best toward the end of the season. Ann Kimm even qualified for the AIAW National Track and Field Cham- pionships at UCLA, where she turned in a 12th place finish. Competition also ran high in men ' s track and field as Vernon Darling qualified for the NCAA Division II competition after winning the 3,000- meter steeplechase in MIAA conference action. Bob Kelchner set a school record in the 1,000-yard run, Steve Scanlon put his name in the record book with a 50 ' 6 " heave in the shot put, and Dave Winslow established a new stan- dard in the 10,000-meter run with a time of 33:52.8. Pole vaulters Bill Wohlleber, Ron Hennessey, Doug Gabbert and Bob Sampson grabbed a host of first, second and third place finishes in that event in indoor competition. The Bearcats took third in the Doane College quadrangular, second in a meet at Nebraska Wesleyan and first in the Graceland Triangular. At the MIAA Indoor Championships, the Bear- cats ranked sixth and again finished sixth in the outdoor conference meet, which they hosted on a new Reslite all-weather track. i MEN ' S TRACK FIELD.

Two varieties of success gained Pouncing on the Bears of SWMSU to capture the MIAA title for the seventh consecutive year, the men ' s tennis team made 1977 the " year of the Cat. " Biooun Odunsi and Olayi Ogunrinde, the ' Cats ' top doubles duo, contended In the NCAA nationals held May 16, 1977 in San Diego, California. Unfortunately, the pair lost to Doug Ditmer and Jim Nelson of the California State- Hayward Pioneers in first-round action. In his first NCAA singles venture, Ogunrinde won first-round action, then fell over Southeastern Louisiana ' s Ignacio Owsondon, and finally to Milos Dimitrivic of San Diego. The win and loss left the MIAA top singles champion with a 15-5 season record. Odunsi played the European Amateur Circuit and competed singly in the NCAA nationals during his second year as a Bearcat. After three sets of first-round singles activity, he bows to Steven Bryant of Florida Tech., leaving the con- test with a 15-5 tally for the season. Three key players were sidelined at intervals during the season. Ogunrinde was bothered by his knee; Rudy Zuniga suffered a sprained ankle and Rex Haultain was plagued with shoulder problems at the close of the season. On the women ' s side of the net, disap- pointments dominated the Bearkittens second season of intercollegiate tennis competition. Showing improvement over their inaugural year, they were still left with only one victory in nine outings. Head Coach Barbara Bernard saw improve- ment in the type of players she worked with on the ' 77 squad. " We had better players. More of them were interested in a varsity-type program, " said Ber- nard. " Before we had what I call recreational players who were not willing to work as hard as our girls did this year. " The Bearkittens only victory of the season came against Longview Community College when they posted a 9-0 shutout. Even though the Bearkittens increased the competition in their second season ' s schedule from five matches to nine, the end result of one season victory remained the same. i J 108 TENNIS ABOVE: Caught off balance, Rex Haul- tain returns a fast shot.

TENNIS 109 Golfers swing as females spike it Victories over Benedictine, Tarkio and Mid- America Nazarene liighlighted tlie men ' s golf season. Under tlie direction of Bob Gregory, the team finished ninth in the Heart of America Classic, 16th in the Crossroads of America tournament and fifth in the Missouri Inter- collegiate Athletic Association golf cham- pionships. Phil Workman paced the ' Cats all season and was the medalist in several matches. He finish- ed fourth in the MIAA tournament with a 148, and, due to that finish was accorded 1977 All- MIAA golf honors. Coach Gregory was pleased with Workman ' s season performances. " When Phil finished fourth in the conference that was a nice honor, " said Gregory. According to Gregory, the scheduling last season was a little different from previous years. " We played mostly tournaments and just one or two dual matches, " he said. Overall Gregory felt the team should ' ve had a more productive season. " I felt we should ' ve done better in some of our matches. We just couldn ' t get everyone doing good on the same days, " concluded Gregory about the spring season. In the women ' s department, the volleyballers had their most successful season. Winning became a reality when the ' 77 Kittens hit the court. Under the direction of new head coach Pam Stanek, the Kittens were able to put together their first winning season in their three-year existence. One major factor in the Kittens success was more-evenly-matched competition. The 110 GOLF VOLLEYBALL Bearkittens played smaller colleges with a comparative skill level rather than the major universities they played against in the past. Although the Kittens won 17 of their 35 matches, they were still unable to capture a spot in the state tournament. They tied for se- cond place in their district but lost the play-off match to William Jewell. " They were unable to play their best when there was pressure. They showed inexperience in their errors, " said Stanek. Since the Kittens missed the state tourna- ment, they were able to compete in the Rockhurst Invitational Tournament and brought home a second place trophy. Several players contributed to the Kitten ' s success according to Coach Stanek. Dianne Withrow and Kathy Fischer played important roles as hitters and Joni Albin and Mary Bourne were effective setters for the team. Dianne Withrow, a three-year veteran of the team, felt that the team morale was high throughout the season. " Winning made all the difference in the world, " she said. " We went out with the idea of winning instead of the idea of scoring two or three points. " Playing together as a team was the key to the Kittens successful season. " Our team relations were excellent, " said Stanek. " Everybody always got along. " During the season the team was bothered by injuries but Stanek didn ' t feel this caused any major problems with their overall performance. " Despite the shifting we had to do because of injuries, " said Stanek, " I think the girls played up to their capabilities throughout the season.

Opening up their season with a honne game against Chadron State, the ' Cats played it close to the end and came away with a 9-6 victory. Chadron led throughout most of the game, but the green-and-white finally got things together, going 83 yards for a touchdown in the final minutes of the game. The score was set up after a pass play that covered 75 yards from Kirk Mathews to Brad Boyer. Steve Tangeman then hauled in a Mathews pass for the Bearcat go-ahead tally. Faced with a 7-0 lead by Pittsburg State at the half in their second game of the new season, the ' Cats didn ' t disappoint anyone in Rickenbrode Stadium as they scored 27 se- cond half points for a 27-14 win. The Bearcat offense gained 299 yards in that second half and was sparked by two tallies by Shawn Geraghty in the field goal department and three TD runs by quarterback Mathews. Game number three pitted the ' Cats and the Cardinals of William Jewell. This time the ' Cats picked up a win by a score of 48-6. Several ' Cats were in on the scoring against Jewell. Mathews teamed up with Boyer and Larry Schleicher for TD ' s through the air, and substitute quarterback Mark Smith ran for one score and three for another to Dave Scott. Ben Birchfield and James Leigh both broke long runs to add some points. Defensively, the gridders forced three fumbles and also managed five interceptions. Marty Albertson picked off three interceptions, and Mark Doll, Gene Gladstone, Rod Heifers and Jim Bivens each grabbed one. With a 3-0 record, the ' Cats traveled to Fort Hays State for their fourth non-conference en- counter. Fort Hays came up with a 42-28 win which gave the squad their first non-conference loss since September 1974. Jim Solo, back as a Bearcat after a two-year absence, scored two TD ' s to lead the team offensively. In the final non-conference meeting of the season, the ' Cats hosted Central Arkansas. In a game plagued by mistakes (the Bearcats lost two fumbles and were intercepted three times), the visiting Bears took hold and defeated the ' Cats, 27-7. After falling behind in the contest, 7-0, the green-and-white managed to tie things up on a one-yard run by Ben Birchfield. However, that was to be the only score of the evening for the hosts as Central came through with 20 more points and took the win.

RIGHT: Players look onto the field as the play begins. Gridders plunge to 5-5-1 record The second season, otherwise known as the MIAA Conference race, began with the Bear- cats, at 3-2, facing Southwest Missouri State. For the first time since 1970, the ' Cats came away a non-winner in its MIAA opener as they tied the SWMSU team, 10-10. NWMSU ' s lone score in the game came when defensive linemen Rick Tate and Jim Ingram moved in on the Bears quarterback as he prepared to pass. Wayne Allen picked up the pass in mid-air and rambled 12 yards for the score. A loss to Southeast Missouri State, 16-0, continued the ' Cats non-winning streak to four weeks in a row. Bright spots for the Bearcats were offensive player of that week, Dan Montgomery, who went over the 100-yard mark for the third time in the 1977 season, specialty team player Andy Ruesche, and, defensive players Lewis Kincade and Darrell Davis. Homecoming 77 was a rainy, dismal day in terms of weather, but the outcome of the game brought a little sunshine to the Bearcats. In a game that wasn ' t decided until the fourth quarter, the ' Cats downed Central Missouri State, 27-12, thus bringing their record to 4-3-1 overall and 1-1-1 in conference play. Sophomore Shawn Geraghty was named the Don Black Memorial Trophy recipient, after he kicked two field goals and added three extra points after touchdowns. The taste of victory didn ' t last long for the Bearcats as they were defeated on Saturday number nine, 27-6, by the Missouri-Rolla Miners. NWMSU broke into the win column once again with a convincing 54-26 win over the hapless Lincoln Tigers. Jim Solo had an outstanding game for the ' Cats, gaining 156 yards rushing and scoring three touchdowns. Dan Montgomery also went over the 100-yard mark with 134 yards, and Kirk Mathews joined the century club with 102 yards. Playing what Head Coach Jim Redd termed " a heck of a first half, " the Bearcats took a 19- 14 halftime lead in their last game of the 1977 season against Northeast Missouri State. However, the Bulldogs came back with a six- yard run to bring the ' Cats within one after the extra point try was blocked. Northwest took a 14-13 lead on a Kirk Mathews pass to Brad Boyer and the Geraghty kick, and then built the halftime lead to five when Montgomery ran in from the three. At the start of second half action, Northeast uncorked its offense and geared down for 17 second-half points to notch the win. Meanwhile, the ' Cats were stopped offensively.

' Takin ' it to the streets ' and hills After winning the MAIAW championship in cross country for the past three seasons, the 1977 Bearkittens squad was forced to work en- tirely from scratch this season, as no former letterwoman returned to the team. Karen Kunz-Foley led the team in every meet. The pixie-like senior, who missed a berth in the national competition by only three places, said, " I changed my form, learned to run right and did lots of speed work. Good coaching and desire were important, too, " she added. According to first-year coach Laurie Meyers, " Everyone improved by the end of the season. Other coaches that we competed against com- mented on the progress. " Along with Kunz-Foley, others who com- peted for the ' Kittens were Peg Gauthier, Jane Becker, Vicky Lyddon, Margie Parmenter, Angela McCuistion and Kathy Smith. At season ' s end, the team presented their coach with a plaque bearing a Biblical inscrip- tion, " Do you not know that those who run in a race all r un, but only one receives the prize. Run in such a way that you may win. " According to a team member, this inscription seemed to fit Meyers ' objectives and the Kittens ' goals. i ee f 5 f In men ' s action, Richard Alsup took over in the head coaching ranks after serving as a graduate assistant in the football program. Throughout the season, most of the load fell on the shoulders of Bob Kelchner, Jeff Roberts, Mike Sayers, Dave Winslow and Greg Miller. Freshmen David Sleep and Greg Frost also aid- ed the ' Cat contingent. The team was forced to compete without the services of Vernon Darling, the holder of several NWMSU track and cross country records. Darling was slowed by a knee injury. Speaking of Darling ' s absence. Coach Alsup said, " If there was one downfall this year, it was that we didn ' t have that one great runner. " A 1-5 mark was compiled by the Bearcats in dual meets while the team completed the season with a fifth place finish in the conference meet. In that meet, the team was led by Kelchner, who finished 19th, and by Roberts who ended up in the 26th spot. Evaluating the season, Alsup said, " We weren ' t ready to improve like we should have. With the athletic ability our runners have, we should be running better in cross country. " BEARCAT CROSS COUNTRY.

CROSS COUNTRY 117 Key tallies aid ' Cat roundballs Plagued by the loss of four key players, the Bearcat basketball team could only tally an Il- ls season record. The ' Cats, lost Dean Petersen, Steve Marshall, Mark Mara and George Davis for a variety of reasons following the break, and the personnel changes forced first-year Head Coach Larry Holley to change to a " more con- trolled style of play. " The loss of these players totaled approximately 35 points per game. " The loss of those four players hurt us talent- wise, " said Holley. " Considering the loss of the talent we came up with a pretty good season. Holley, along with graduate assistants Del Morley and Leonard Orr, coached the ' Cats to a 9-4 home court record. Two of these wins came in the Ryland Milner Tournament held in December. After defeating Missouri Baptist in the opening round the ' Cats played Wayne State of Nebraska for the cham- pionship. The roundballers won the tournament finale 99-73. Petersen was named the most valuable player in the tourney. Davis and Phil Blount joined him on the all-tourney team. During the tournament, two NWMSU records were set. The records were number of points scored in a single game (113 against Missouri Baptist) and the most field goals in a single game (48 against Missouri Baptist). This was the first tournament the Bearcats had won in 12 years. After dropping five games in a row, the ' Cats upset Missouri-Rolla 76-74 in overtime at Rolla. " At the time we had lost those players and five games in a row. It brought us together again, " said Holley. Another important victory for the ' Cats was an 82-68 upset over Northeast Missouri. Going into the game. Northeast had defeated the ' Cats nine straight times and were on top of the MIAA standings with a 5-0 record. Russ Miller ' s four dunks brought the home crowd to their feet throughout the game. The ' Cats once again beat Rolla in overtime 80-79 on Blount ' s two free throws. They trailed by seven points with only a minute to go when they made their comeback. After Petersen was suspended most of the scoring load fell on Blount. The junior guard wound up the season by averaging just over 15 points a game. Despite a losing record. Coach Holley was pretty well satisfied with the season ' s outcome. " We had a lot of new faces this year (only three had played at NWMSU before) and I think we ' ve taken a step in the right direction, " said Holley. 1977-78 Basketball Results 118 BEARCAT BASKETBALL RIGHT: As a Northeast player stands helpless, Russ Miller stuffs one.

' Kittens become ' California ' girls Winning 20 games this year highliglited the season for second-year Bearkitten Coach John Poulson and graduate assistant Irish VanOosbree because their team was only the third to achieve that victory total. Among those victories was the 64-57 first- round victory over Central Missouri in the MAIAW Tournament. This victory allowed the ' Kittens to advance to the final round of com- petition. In the championship game, the ' Kittens faced the 18th nationally-ranked Missouri Tigers. The ' Kittens were plagued by turnovers and came up on the short end of a 71-68 score to place second in the state tournament. The loss was only their seventh setback in 27 starts. Even though the Bearkittens came up short when the game-ending buzzer sounded, three of them were selected to the all-tourney team— Julie Schmltz, Janet Cooksey and Suzi LIvengood. During the regular season, the ' Kittens only participated in the Ryland Milner Tournament which was hosted by NWMSU. For the second 120 BEARKITTEN BASKETBALL straight year, they took the first place trophy by defeating Benedictine and Tarkio. To add variety to their schedule, the ' Kittens traveled to California in early January for three games and returned home with as many vic- tories. The ' Kittens also traveled to Kansas City ' s Kemper Arena for their second appearance in as many seasons to play a preliminary game for the National Basketball Association ' s Kansas City Kings and Philadelphia 76ers. The ' Kittens easily defeated Nebraska-Lincoln by a score of 85-54. Although the whole team played well before the major league audience, the big story in- dividually came in the second half. With 9:45 to play in the game, Janet Cooksey became the school ' s all-time career scoring leader when she moved her career mark to 1052. Another school record was set during the season by Julie Schmltz. She set a record for most assists in one season and also topped all others in career assists. i BEARKITTEN BASKETBALL FRONT ROW: Angle Wilson, mgr ; JudI Mendenhall. Linda Amos. Brenda Grate.

BEARKITTEN BASKETBALL 121 ' Cats place fourth in conference Team captain Glen Zenor and Tim McGinnis won individual titles at the Missouri Inter- collegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Tourna- ment but it wasn ' t enough to keep the Bearcat wrestling team from placing fourth— their lowest MIAA finish since the conference tour- nament was started in 1966. Even though the team did not place high in the tournament, four individuals won the honor to compete in the NCAA Division II Tour- nament—Bob Klein, Terry Lenox, McGinnis, and Zenor. Klein, who competed in the 150-pound divi- sion, was pleased with his finish this year. " This was my best year because I was more ex- perienced, " said Klein, who was bothered by in- juries during the season. Leading the Bearcats during the season was senior Tim McGinnis who posted a regular season record of 18-5. Besides the high individual records, the team posted an 11-4 dual record for the season which was the 21st consecutive season the team had a record above .500. In tournament competition, the Bearcats captured first place out of nine teams in the Graceland Invitational. Four Bearcats won in- dividual weight titles to pace the trophy taking effort, while two other ' Gats finished second. The ' Cats were not as lucky in their In- vitational where they finished fifth out of eight teams, but the team was hampered in its effort by the absence of fiv e injured regulars and only had two competitors in finals. In their other regular season tournament, the Kohawk Invitational in Cedar Rapids, the ' Cats finished second out of seven teams. Overall Coach George Worley was pleased with the Bearcats ' performance during the season but he was disappointed that they were unable to finish higher in the MIAA Tourna- ment.

As the TOWER went to press, the ' Cats were finishing out their season at the MIAA conference meet. Although five of the team ' s regulars dropped from the squad at semester, several outstanding perfor- mances were turned in by both newcomers and veterans of Coach Lewis Dyche ' s Aquacats. Dick Dalager copped five first place finishes in meets through the season to lead the ' Cats in- dividually. Co-captain Phil Esposito termed the meet at Wayne State (which the team lost by one point) and the Creighton meet (which came down to the last race before the ' Cats took the victory), as the season ' s high points. Gymnastics, another indoor sport, featured a host of newcomers. However, Coach Sandra Mull ex- pressed pleasure with her team ' s season. " I think that the girls did real well in the sense that they ' ve im- proved, even though they didn ' t place real high. " The gymnasts took first place in a triangular meet they hosted as their most successful outing of the season. Joy Emery paced the ' Kittens in that meet by taking the all-around title. Bobbie Felthousen placed in three events in a meet at Iowa City, and, also finished among the top placers in most meets, to lend support to the ' Kitten effort.

" In bright new uniforms, capes swinging, the marchers made their entrance. Many sweated out their first-game jitters and tried to hit each yardline with the right, not the left, foot. As they moved down the field to the vibrant notes of " ' Hang ' Em High, " the audience joined in their enthusiasm. With the applause coming at the final chord there was a feeling of accomplish- ment for a job well done. Flags, Steppers, and twirlers Stephanie Davis and Elaine Nees, were added attractions for the band. Each worked hard on their perfor- mances, but the Flags ' routines seemed to be especially difficult. " Each person moved their flag differently so it was hard to get everyone to look the same, " said flag person Patricia Sinnett. While the band had to adjust to a new drum major for the year, Kelley had to adjust to a new position. Compared to marching with the band as a trumpet player, being drum major was " on the other side of the fence. You ' re expected to know all aspects of the shows. Instead of know- ing only one part, you had to know every position. " Marching for the Royals ' fourth play-off game was the high spot of the season. Standing down on the field, staring up into thousands of filled seats and listening to the rising cheers was an awesome experience for many. Know- ing that all those people were watching, made the band realize that every movement counted. Precision was the key and that was their goal. Director Woodruff said " i thought it went very well and I had a good time. " However, he added that it was " not really different because the band was so far away from the people. " Homecoming was somewhat of a let-down. The parade went well, but the field was drench- ed from the preceding rain and although the band was willing, marching was not possible during half-time. However, the crowd was not completely without music because the band played their songs to the crowd from the track. Their feeling of unity for the day resulted in an outstanding display of what the band could do despite adverse conditions. The marching season seemed to be a success despite the rain and other minor problems. There were fewer members this year, but Woodruff said that " the band was generally very good to work with and very cooperative. I liked working with them. " I ABOVE: BMB psych themselves up as they await a command. LEFT: After many hard days of practice, the BN B waits to show their stuff.

" This was one of tlie many fanniliar cheers Bearcat cheerleaders urged the fans to chant. Even in below freezing temperatures, falling rain and when the ' Cats were behind by ten points, the cheerleaders were still on the track smiling and trying to promote spirit among the fans. The cheerleaders also tried to encourage spirit on campus. " We ' ve tried to add new cheers, and we wanted to promote more spirit on campus, " said Pam Finnell, a squad member. One of the spirit-promoting projects was Initiated for Homecoming when the cheerleaders participated in the IRC bonfire and pep rally. Even though there were certain rewards to cheering in front of a large crowd, there was still a lot of work involved. The cheerleaders had to practice at least one hour every day. For a job that most people summarize as " adding color, " the ' 77 Bearcat cheerleaders found cheering a lot of work and little play. Another group which added color to Univer- sity sporting events were the Bearcat Steppers. These girls were a section of the marching band and were under the direction of Joyce Jackson. They performed during half-time at Bearcat football and basketball games. According to Jackson, the Steppers were judged on " rhythm, personality, stage presence and the ability to learn dance routines quickly. " " We would be given our music a week before a game, and we had to make up a routine, teach it to the squad and perfect it for the week- end game, " said Kristi Welch, Stepper captain. The Steppers attended daily practices in which they worked at least one hour. Hard work was the key to the cheerleaders ' and Steppers ' performances this year. Even though they were excited about the thrill of per- forming for the Bearcat fans, they devoted hours of hard work to earn their applause.

Marvin Silliman, director of student services, geared the new policies of the men ' s intramural program toward more student involvement. " Fraternities have always had good participa- tion in intramurals, but this year we tried to get more involvement from the independent groups and from the residence halls. " To encourage more involvement, an in- tramural board was set up with one member from each fraternity and one member from each dorm. The purpose of the intramural board was to formulate intramural programs and to see that they ran smoothly. Heading the men ' s intramural program was graduate student Thom Shannon. He was responsible for programming all activities and choosing different leagues for football, basket- ball and Softball. Shannon also initiated competition in billiards, wrestling, weight lifting, track and tug- of-war. For the first time there were co- recreational activities featuring competition between men and women in cross country, table tennis, swimming, racquet ball, bowling, tennis and Volleyball.

S More women compete with men Women competed with men in the new women ' s intramural program. Co-ed competi- tion was held for the first time in cross country, table tennis, swimming, racquet ball, bowling, tennis, and volleyball. Other popular sports were flag football which was won by Franken ' s Seventh and volleyball which was won by the Daughters of Diana. Women ' s intramural graduate assistant Kim Becker helped reorganize the program with Marvin Silliman, director of intramurals, the In- tramural Board, and Thom Shannon, graduate assistant for men ' s intramurals. Rules for sports were changed and old policies were rewritten. A dress code was required for the first time and less than half a team could be physical education majors. Individual trophies were awarded to the win- ning teams for the first time. " We hoped that the 132 WOMEN ' S INTRAMURALS trophies would boost student interest, " Becker said. Second place teams were awarded cer- tificates. A prot est committee was also formed to decide on complaints. Increased student involvement was stressed this year. A heavy advertising campaign emphasized the importance of intramurals as an emotional outlet from normal class activities. Attendance was slightly improved over recent years with half dorm groups and half organiza- tion participation. There was a concentrated effort to get both faculty and all students involved to promote school unity. Two off-campus teams and one faculty team participated. Although attendance was somewhat disappointing, the new program definitely attempted to introduce one more ac- tivity for students to become Involved in and enjoy as an outside activity. )f f } 1 I 1 ( BOTTOM: Aggressive play Is a part of women ' s intramurals.

" Some of the important ingredients for a successful game included the Sports Informa- tion staff and the KXCV radio crew. To start preparations for the upcoming games, Mike Kiser, Sports Information Direc- tor, began by writing the program, obtaining rosters from opposing schools and updating the statistics for the coaches. When game night came, Kiser arrived at the gym an hour early to set up and to distribute current stats to the coaches. " Our purpose was to promote the upcoming athletic events as well as to cover the event for the local news media, " said Kiser. During the game, Kiser and his press box assistant, Tom Myers, media specialist, kept the game ' s statistics and play-by-play informa- tion. One reason Myers thought statistics were a necessity was because " they were the vehicle to promote our student athletes and teams. " He added, " The worst place to watch a game is the press box. Usually we ' re able to reconstruct the game because we ' ve been writing and typing so we keep the play-by-play to keep track of the game. " After the game, their work wasn ' t done. " We had to call scores to local media, radio, TV and wire services, " said Kiser. To give fans a chance to follow games they couldn ' t attend, KXCV radio provided play-by- play coverage of 22 regular season basketball games. Some of their coverage included out-of-town games so Ed Griffin, KXCV sports director and Bill Oliver had to make advance arrangements for press passes, telephone lines and hotel reservations. " We had to prepare early in the week to read the press information about the opposing school, " said Oliver. Griffin said it usually took six to seven hours to do a broadcast. " Two hours were actually broadcasting the game and the rest was for preparation and post game reports, " said Grif- fin. One of the main purposes for the radio broadcast was to " be the eyes and ears of the listeners, " said Oliver. " People couldn ' t see the game so we had to provide as much information as possible, " said Griffin. " We tried to tell about all of the action and bring in as much background information as we could. " Besides providing the listeners with game in- formation " we served as ambassadors for the school and were an extension of the team. " said Griffin. ' v|niH 0H i mw 1 1 L 7 H 1- H A " ■ 1 ■ .

Bill " Fuzzy " Morton, equipment manager, and Dean Oglesby, coordinator of custodians, agreed that NWMSU was a fine place to work. " Fuzzy " got his name about seven years ago when he began working as the men ' s equip- ment manager. An Army crew cut stood straight up and inspired students and faculty to call Bill Morton, " Fuzzy. " Retiring after 30 years in the Army, he learn- ed of the job from a friend. Although he never had the chance to play sports in school, he wanted the job. He was hired and remains now because of his interest of sports and young people. " They still send me Christmas cards, " he said, as he talked about past students. An average day began at 6 a.m. with about 15 laundry loads of student ' s towels, practice clothes and uniforms. Later, locker rooms opened and clothes were handed out. All the necessary equipment, needed for the day was checked and repaired. Sports served two main purposes, according to " Fuzzy. " " Sports was the drawing card. " He explained that a college needed a good program to attract students. Also, students benefited as they learned to work with others and build up will power. " Fuzzy " was in charge of equipment for men ' s basketball, football, track, cross-country, baseball, tennis and wrestling. Also during the summer, he helped refinish the gym floor in Lamkin. Re-doing the gym floor was " quite a process " which took a full week, according to Dean Oglesby. Oglesby was a custodian at Lamkin Gym, but he left to become coordinator of custodians. Oglesby had 32 custodians working under him at the dorms. Student Union, high-rise cafeteria and both gymnasiums. He stayed in contact with building custodians to make sure all equipment and supplies were available. Other aspects of his work dealt with checking all overtime hours and supervising the annual state department sponsored Custodial Training School. Ten years ago he began working for the University on the grounds crew. He worked there six years and then moved to Lamkin Gym. After four years at Lamkin, Oglesby was promoted to an office job in the Physical Plant. Oglesby has had four years custodial training and lacks two years before he can receive his Master Seal. The seal is the highest position offered in the business. LEFT; Dean Oglesby keeps things run- ning smoothly at Lamkin Gym.

BEHIND THE SCENES 137 -Aw ay from the cheering crowd " Doing your own thing " was one way to describe various individual sports students en- joyed during their free tinne. One growing interest was Frisbee throwing and catching. One enthusiast, Rex Brooker, said Frisbee was " relaxing, but could be very physical, especially when you ' re throwing long distances. I like playing Frisbee as much as some people like to play tennis. " Like Frisbee, skateboarding developed pop- ularity because it could be done most anywhere and required a minimum of equipment. Pat Riley ' s interest developed because surfing in Missouri in the winter wasn ' t practical. " Since the space was limited, " said Riley, " I usually did a lot of freestyle. " He added that on campus the sport isn ' t dangerous, so he does not wear his helmet. But accidents do happen and Riley recalled seriously injuring his foot. " It really hurt and slowed me down for awhile but I didn ' t give skateboarding up because it ' s just too much fun. " Riley recommended others try skateboar- ding. " You have to be a little strange to try it, " he laughed, " but it ' s an exciting sport. " Hunting was another popular outdoor sport among the college males. " Being outside gives me a chance to think, " said Doug Rohr. " I try to hunt at least once a week if I can. " Rohr started hunting about 10 years ago for rabbit and squirrels. Now he also enjoys quail hunting. " Hunting may not be for everyone, " Rohr said, " but it ' s me and it ' s fun . " Individual sports provided students with a break from the pressures of the academic world and also provided the opportunity for them to be kids again. From mud-diving after the Homecoming rains, to weight lifting, to streaking around the dorms, it was apparent in- dividual sports were here to stay.

INDIVIDUAL SPORTS 139 Individual talents blended together as n organizations and exciting old one reflected the desire to participate. New clubs organized to fill particular needs. The Circle K Club was a com- munity and University service club sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. Students pitched in to br- ing the campus closer to the community. The Chinese Student Society formed to give the Chinese students a sense of identity on cam- pus. A large number of rushees indicated a renewed interest in the Greek organizations. Other students became involved in dorm governments while still others joined service organizations related to their majors. Some joined simply for the prestige and other members worked whole-heartedly. Individuals joined campus organizations to combine their abilities with others and successful clubs emerged. Belonging to an organization gave members a chance to inter- relate and make new friends. Identifying with other students with similar interests, gave students a chance to remain individuals yet share a sense of identity. 140 ORGANIZATION 1 4 i } ORGANIZATION 141 PHI SIGMA EPSILON.

Being the eighth oldest Sigma Tau Gamma chapter in the nation was an aspect which pleased President Tom Lancaster. " We have our own alumni chapter so we can keep good relations with past members, " said Lancaster. One of the areas the fraternity was concern- ed with was l eeping good status on campus. To achieve good status, the fraternity was selective in their choice of new members. " We ' re very uninhibited because we didn ' t try to put on an act. We looked for guys who would fit in and help out the fraternity, " said Lancaster. The pledges found initiation easier this year. " We cut down on our initiation to make it a bit easier to get in, " said Lancaster. The men of Phi Sigma Epsilon also changed their pledgeship tasks. " In the past, it ' s been more hard-core, but now we are being more liberal, " said Frank Kurtz, Phi Sigma Epsilon house manager. " We made things involved in pledgeship a little easier. " An area which the fraternity worked toward was community service. " We tried to help the community by doing labor projects for older Maryville residents, " said Kurtz. The members of the Phi Sigma Epsilon chapter continued their service projects in order to provide individuals with opportunities of community involvement.

Out of 310 Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraterni- ty chapters, NWMSU ' s was chosen top in the nation. Several things were considered in the evaluations. " We were judged on our service projects, size of the chapter, grade point average, condition of the house and financial condition, " said John Moore, TKE president. The men of Tau Kappa Epsilon attributed their national recognition to the triple purpose they tried to achieve. " We tried to better the in- dividual socially, academically and athletically, better the campus and better the community, " said Moore. To better the community, the fraternity members participated in several service pro- jects. " We had one community project per month, " said Moore. " We collected for the March of Dimes and had a Christmas party for handicapped children. " To assist the fraternity in their projects, the TKE ' s had a little sister organization, the Daughters of Diana. " We basically helped the fraternity with their community service projects, " said Teri Teetor, Daughters of Diana president. " We also tried to help them during rush. " The year was unique for the TKE fraternity because most of their members were juniors or seniors. " In the past, we always had younger people. But having mostly upperclassmen we developed a certain closeness we hadn ' t had before, " said Moore. 144 ORGANIZATIONS Sp.fl8i Wis Chi bieJ . Steve ffj b " ' •Stoeff DAUGHTERS OF DIANA.

" We wanted to improve the way that independents looked at fraternities, " said Eric Sorensen, Delta Chi president. " We hoped they looked at us openly and didn ' t stereotype fraternities and Greek life. " Being part of a fraternity can be an asset of college life according to Sorensen. " A fraternity is one of the best ways to learn from others because you can be closer to a larger group of people. " When choosing new members, the Delta Chi ' s tried to find people who they felt would fit in the fraternity. " We looked for an individual who would help out the fraternity, " said Sorensen. " They should be good leaders, have a good personality and conduct themselves like gentlemen. " The Delta Chi ' s made pledging more human for new members. " We changed our pledge tasks by making them less physical, " said Sorensen. To provide members with an opportunity for leadership, the Delta Chi ' s sponsored several service projects. " Each spring we have a swim- a-thon for the sheltered workshop, " said Sorensen. " At Christmas, we had a party for the underprivileged children. " Assisting the fraternity were the Chi Delphians.

Upgrading their pledge class was one of the goals of the Delta Sigma Phi ' s this year. " Starting this year we looked at upgrading the pledges. The individuals we rushed were better than ourselves, " said Gary Howard, president. " We hope to better the fraternity by getting better people. " To be accepted by the fraternity, pledges were required to do a number of tasks, but they were easier than previous years explained Howard, " We ' re getting away from a lot of our traditional habits and going along with our national chapter making our pledge tasks a lit- tle easier. " Although the pledge tasks were easier, the fraternity was still selective when choosing new members because they wanted people who ' d uphold the fraternity ' s standards. " The people and personalities of our members and the way we associate with others made our fraternity different, " said Howard. To keep their good standards, Howard said, the fraternity concentrated on education, recreation, social consciousness, brotherhood and sports. Among their activities the Delta Sigma Phi ' s worked on several service projects. " We sponsored a concert for Head Start, and at Christmas we helped a needy family, " said Howard. " In the future, we hope to sponsor some charity projects for Muscular Dystrophy and the Heart Fund. " When the fraternity held service projects, the Delta Sigma Phi little sisters helped them with the preparations. " We mainly helped out with all of the frater- nity ' s activities, " said Robi Markt, Delta Sigma Phi little sister vice-president. " We helped them out with their smoker, made a dinner for the rushees, assisted with their Monte Carlo, and helped with the house decorations during Homecoming.

" We anted to do something for him since he was leaving office, because he ' d given so much support to the fraternities on campus, " said Tim Carter, AKL member. iVIembers also helped with several service projects which included the United Way and the Muscular Dystrophy Dance Marathon. Dan Morgan, AKL president, felt the fraterni- ty was successful with the charity events because of the membership. " There is a certain closeness between active members, " said Morgan. " We have worl ed toward a number of goals. This year was different because one of our goals included purchasing our new house, " he said. Carter agreed the men of Alpha Kappa Lambda worked together toward their goals. " Basically this chapter is an organization with a lot of different kinds of people who can work together toward one goal, " said Carter. " That is the success of AKL. Our purpose is to help each other out both socially and academically. " Helping the fraternity with their social events were the Kalley Filleeans. " We serve as a women ' s auxiliary to the fraternity and help them with social functions and fund raising projects, " said Janet Brunham, past Kalley Filleean president.

Changing images and involvement were goals of the Phi Mu sorority. " We were more than just a socia l organization, " said President Teresa Walker. " We offered a lot to the campus with Homecoming activities. " Other activities included money making pro- jects for the March of Dimes and Ship of Hope. Phi Mu hosted a spring formal, Halloween and Christmas parties and participated in smokers. Sorority members learned about getting along with others through involvement. " We made lots of really close friends by living and working together, " Walker said. Getting involved was also important to the members of Delta Zeta. They took their largest pledge class ever and won Greek Women Supremacy at Homecoming. Terri Heath, was chosen to be one of the six national field representatives. " It ' s too easy to sit in your room and not become involved, " said Robin Roberts, cor- responding secretary. " Being a Delta Zeta helped me meet a lot of new people and get in- volved with campus activities. " Delta Zetas participated in many activities. They hosted a Christmas party for under- privileged children and adopted a patient at St. Francis Hospital. Members also held a Founder ' s Day Banquet, a cherry pie eating contest, a spring formal and participated in in- tramurals. " Although it does cost quite a bit of money, the benefits are worth it, " Roberts said. " We felt we were all sisters and that helped me see other viewpoints I might have overlooked. " Closeness was also stressed by the members of Alpha Omicron Pi. " We have lots of members from small towns and the sorority makes them feel like a family, " said Lori Bowers, past vice-president. Belonging to the sorority helped girls participate in many pro- jects and meet new people. " " I ' ll be a member of Alpha Omicron Pi throughout my life and I know wherever I go I ' ll always have a friend, " said Bowers. " Self- growth was the biggest benefit. We did so much entertaining that I learned many social skills. " Members participated in formal and informal rush, Homecoming activities, supported the National Arthritis Foundation and hosted a Thanksgiving supper and Valentines Day party. 152 ORGANIZATIONS JPhi Mu Delta Zeta Alpha Omicron PL LEFT: Rush games help to relax the atmosphere as Phi Mu members and rushees catch the apple.

Celebrating their 50th anniversary in March highlighted the year for the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. During their 50 years on campus, the sorority has been pleased with their academic quality. " We ' ve had the Panhellenic scholarship trophy for the past 18 years, " said Cindy Harris, Alpha Sigma Alpha president. Another achievement of the sorority was be- ing selected outstanding Greek organization during Greek Week. Harris attributed the award to the sorority ' s campus involvement. One of the goals of Alpha Sigma Alpha was to provide a close relationship between members. Sigma Sigma Sigma President Brenda Cum- mins also felt their sorority improved campus life for their members. To get members involved, the sorority had several service projects. One of their biggest projects was raising money for Cardinal Glen- non Hospital in St. Louis. In order to be successful in their projects, the sorority chose members who could work together with the chapter. " We looked for girls w ith a good personality and attitude, " said Cummins.

To " promote good Greek-Independent relations " was the goal of both the Panhellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council. Both councils worked together in various ways as they governed and watched over the social Greek sororities and fraternities. Five officers for Panhellenic Council were elected from nominees of each sorority. Only representatives were allowed to vote on matters. The Interfraternity Council was run in a similar manner although there were only four officers. Panhellenic Council collected dues, which were used for activities, from each sorority which was used for various activities. Members planned the Woman Awareness Workshop held in the dorms for everyone, in February. Various speakers answered questions and dis- cussed. As the Council represented Greek women on 156 ORGANIZATIONS campus, it also attempted to " provide the in- dividual with responsibility as well as ex- perience " through involvement in various ac- tivities. " I got to know girls from the other sororities, " said Tricia Duncan, former officer. " The Interfraternity Council acted as the " governing body for fraternities " and discussed actions and rules of each. Members policed fraternity organizations during rush and a farewell reception for retiring President Robert Foster was attended by all fraternities. Members worked with Panhellenic Council on rush, Greek Week and philanthropic ac- tivities. During rush they published a pamphlet which told prospective rushees about each fraternity. " It (IFC) was a teamwork type of thing rather than competitive; it helped build better Greek relations, " said Mike Pete, former IFC presi- dent. i )b TION CENTER - rt»i BELOW: Tammy Garst describes some aspects of social life at a sorority rush party BOTTOt : Susan Silvius. presi- dent, writes new ideas for Panhellenic Council to discuss.

ORGANIZATIONS 157 ii student involvement was a growing tren d which could be seen in the Inter-Residence Council (IRC) and Hudson Hall Dorm Council. They took steps toward increasing their usefulness and productivity. IRC became more widely recognized by students during the year by sponsoring many events which got students out of their rooms. " The one program that was a success was ' Almost Anything Goes. ' However, the OI toberfest was also very well accepted, " said sponsor Mike VanGuilder. IRC also gave its own members valuable ex- perience. " It provided many activities for the halls, " said VanGuilder. " But even more impor- tant, it offered approximately 40 students a chance to participate in student government. " Another important aspect of IRC was the in- volvement in areas such as investigating the legality of the $3 activity fee, verifying a petition against the night host-hostess policy, designing an energy-saving program, and evaluating the 48-hour open weekends. Since IRC could not sponsor events for ev ery dorm, individual councils were used. " We were an energetic group since we were such a large group, " said Lisa Scott, Hudson ' s Dorm Coun- cil president. The council had about 27 members and input from resident assistants and other interested residents.

Striving for unity was as Im- portant as obtaining the comforts of home. Council members joined because they wanted to have a hand in University activities and be informed. Wendy Taff, president of Roberta Hall Dorm Council, joined to find out what happened in her dorm and on campus. " There were some things you couldn ' t change, " she said, " but you could make your dorm more comfortable. " Earning new sports equipment and cooking utensils and bringing sororities closer together were major goals that the Roberta Council ac- complished. An all-sorority Christmas party brought a feeling of unity among residents. " If you care about your environment, you ' re willing to put forth the effort to improve it, " said Diane Guill, president of Perrin Dorm Council. Guill cited s uch improvements as pencil sharpeners on each floor, cooking utensils and change at the desk. Also, the spring semester witnessed work on a vending machine proposal. Building a prize-winning jalopy for the Homecoming parade provided a common goal. Another unifying activity was the dorm Christ- mas party, which drew twice as many girls as last year. Social activities served more than dorm residents. Perrin held its second annual Mom ' s Weekend and cooperated with Hudson Hall during LIT Sis weekend. Hudson residents also benefited from Perrin ' s Saturday morning donut sales. Dieterich Hall ' s Dorm Council planned ac- tivities to include the entire campus. Guys from Dieterich mingled with girls from Franken at a KDLX remote. The two halls also sponsored a Valentine ' s Day Dance in cooperation with Inter-Residence Council (IRC). " I suppose one of our functions was feeding hungry people, " laughingly remarked Keith Ferguson, president of Dieterich Dorm Council. They attempted to sponsor campus-wide barbecues once a semester. Auxiliary funds from IRC enabled the Council to host a spring barbecue with bluegrass entertainment by River Rock. Dieterich residents kept active year-round in various sports tournaments. One of the highlights was a self-defense presentation dur- ing the spring semester. DORM COUNCILS 161 KAPPA DELTA PI.

Pi Beta Alpha was a professional fraternity for people interested in business. Members strived " towards presenting the individual stu- dent with a look at the business world " outside the classroom. The group visited a firehouse dinner theatre in Omaha, an advertising firm, banl s and various other businesses. Homecoming was another big activity where members placed well in House Decoration and Clown competition. Members of the group were sponsored in the Dance Marathon, had special speakers at meetings, gave to the KDLX Christ- mas Remote and presented awards to three outstanding members. " The highest academic honorary achieve- ment a student could win on this campus other than graduation honors, was to be a member of Kappa Delta Pi, " said Dr. John Harr, sponsor. Over 100 members were initiated during the year. Events included spring and Christmas banquets and speakers. An honorary academic organization on cam- pus in foreign languages was Alpha Mu Gam- ma. Some activities of the group included an in- itiation, a picnic, parties, and Christmas caroll- ing at area rest homes. To add variety to the meetings, speakers came and showed films of life in other countries which compared their habits to life in the United States. 162 ORGANIZATIONS i • " , : ?? i ' - ■ ' .d . K.

Three honoraries offered students, who couldn ' t get enough of each other in class, the chance to get together socially. Delta Tau Alpha, honorary agriculture frater- nity added a club newspaper to their list of ac- tivities. In addition to monthly meetings and social functio ns, the members pooled their ef- forts to produce a bi-weekly newspaper oriented toward the agriculture department. " We ' re responsible for writing, producing and distributing it, " said Alan Sieh, DTA president. One highlight of the year was a January in- itiation banquet which featured the national DTA president as the main speaker. A banquet also highlighted the year for Alpha Beta Alpha, library science honorary. That banquet, a Christmas party and a chili supper allowed the group to socialize while they tried, according to secretary Roberta Campbell, to make " others more aware of library science. " Monthly meetings provided English Honor Society members a chance to socialize and take advantage of programs geared to broaden perspectives of their area. " Every one of our meetings was a worthwhile experience, " said Ann Mutti, president, " We tried to vary the topics at our meetings and it kept everyone interested.

" Alpha Psi Omega was always attempting to upgrade the quality of performance and theater, " said Dr. Charles Schultz, sponsor. The club was responsible for two major productions— " Harvey " and " Once Upon a Clothesline. " Both shows were student directed and proceeds went towards theater scholarships. The one-act play " Marriage Proposal " went on tour, was taped and aired by KMWM. The honorary theater club also provided consultations for entries in the Variety Show, participated in Women Education Week with a reader ' s theater and was an integral part of all the major theater productions. Another active club was Sigma Alpha lota. " We are a service club to the music department, " said Corky Dochterman, presi- dent. Sigma Alpha lota helped the music depart- ment with food stands for Swing Choir Clinic and district music contest. For music majors, " Jury Day " (when graduating seniors perform for faculty members) was more relaxed with the club providing refreshments. Many activities included the men ' s music fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega. A Valentine ' s dance, Mr. Legs Contest won by Eldon Cross, and Sigma Alpha lota ' s annual Man of the Year honors won by Mike Nelson, were the activities the clubs had together. Along with activities sponsored with Sigma Alpha lota, the men of Phi Mu Alpha gave music majors a chance to get away from the practice rooms and relax. Besides discussing their common interest in music, members gathered around the piano at meetings, and held informal gatherings. 166 ORGANIZATIONS y, ■ r I ' SIGMA ALPHA IOTA.

Activating a Patron Patroness chapter in honor of their parents was one of the year ' s major accomplishments of Kappa Omicron Phi , honorary home economics society. In conjunction with their Founder ' s Day luncheon, held in December, the girls now also honor their parents with a certificate and honorary pledge pins. Joyce Matthews, secretary of Kappa Omicron Phi, said that the major money- making project for the group was the selling of caramel apples at the Homecoming game. Money ta( en into the organization was used basically for national fees, the Founder ' s Day activities, and a Homecoming coffee. During Inauguration Week, Kappa Omicron Phi was one of the sponsors of the visit of Dr. Dorothy Mitstifer, the national executive secretary of the group, who spoke at a " Creativity Workshop. " Although Pi Omega Pi, honorary national business education society, was a small group, 168 ORGANIZATIONS Terri Jackson, secretary, hoped that word would spread and more persons would become interested in membership. " We ' re not an expensive group. National dues are our only expense, " said Jackson. She mentioned that although no men were members of the group, it is open to them. Along with dinner meetings and a Christmas party, the group heard such speakers as the president of Certified Public Secretaries from St. Joseph and Robert Brown, associate professor of business and economics. One of the major undertakings for Society for Collegiate Journalists during the year was Journalism Day, an event which offered high school students the chance to associate with four Pulitzer Prize winners. " It was probably the most successful J-Day ever, " said Laura Widmer, president. Other group activities included a homecom- ing open house, a bake sale and monthly meetings. ik Kappa Omicron Phi Pi Omega Pi Collegiate Journalists.

Although this wasn ' t the only requirement for membership in the follow- ing organizations, it was an important con- sideration. Beta Beta Beta, national biological society, included about 25 biology students. The bi- monthly meetings were " basically business meetings. " President Steve Thomas explained, " but whenever possible we tried to get speakers. " These included graduate students, instructors working on research projects, or conservation agents. Although their activities were somewhat limited, the group planned a plant sale to be coordinated with the Art Department ' s annual sale in the spring. Another honor organization was Blue Key, national honor fraternity. This group included men who had a good scholastic record and showed leadership potential. A major activity throughout the year was the selection of a " Man of the Month. " This choice was " determined on a student ' s imoact on cam- pus, his school record, and what he had done on campus during that month, " said President Leo Brooker. The individual was then recogniz- ed at a dinner held in his honor. Since time was not always available for pro- jects, Brooker said their " main goal was to coordinate activities on campus. The meetings provided information. " Cardinal Key National Honor Society also in- cluded a wide variety of students. This was a benefit because the members " learned a lot about the different academic areas, " said Merry Harrington, president. " It was a good way to get a variety of viewpoints, " she added. Organization was slow at the start of the year as it took the club awhile to make adjustment of changing from Embers to Cardinal Key. Ob- taining new members was also a major under- taking. Once settled, however, the group began to become more active. They chose a " Leader of the Month " and organized a paper drive to raise money for the regional convention to be held on campus the next year.

Becoming more professional was tlie main goal for members of Delta Psi Kappa, the honorary fraternity for people interested in physical education and recreation. Activities of the group included a book sale, demonstrations, talks from trainers and a watermelon feed for a freshman get-together. Members also set up for athletic events and provided two scholarships for physical educa- tion or recreation majors. One of the fraternity ' s biggest events last spring was to host a mini-convention and ban- quet for nearby Delta Psi Kappa fraternities. Another honorary fraternity on campus was Pi Kappa Delta which had the primary function of representing active interest in academics through debate, orator and Individual events. The organization was open to students in- terested in forensics that compete regularly, however, students didn ' t have to be a member of the fraternity to compete in University tour- naments. Among their various functions the fraternity held the annual Show-Me Invitational tourna- ment and attended the national convention in Seattle, Wash. Even though they received about 100 invitations they were only able to compete in about 20 events. When attending the meets, members emphasized their motto " the art of persuasion beautiful and just. " Other activities included members providing demonstrations and sending tapes to area high school students to show what foren- sics was about. In addition to the honorary fraternities, there are also service fraternities. One of the service fraternities was Alpha Phi Omega which tried to uphold their motto " be a leader, be a friend, be of service " when they participated in several activities. Some of their activities included parties, in- itiation and participating in ' Almost Anything Goes. ' Members also ran a concession stand at football games, helped with registration, helped the Youth Association for Retarded Citizens with the Special Olympics, and worked on the Dance Marathon. The group also helped with several off- campus activities which included collecting for the Kidney Fund. Because of their various service projects, the growing fraternity claimed to be the world ' s largest service fraternity on college campus ' and tried to perform a multitude of services to the community and campus. .Delta Psi Kappa Alpha Phi Omega Pi Kappa Delta. 172 ORGANIZATIONS f ' l DEBATE HONOR TEAM.

" We tried to escape the home-mal er image and push home economics as a profession, " said Gayle Wilson, SHEA reporter. Meetings were more than business dis- cussions and parliamentary procedure. A lec- turer from the National Dairy Council presented aids for teaching nutrition at a fall session. Home economics in other countries was spotlighted in the spring with a foreign home economics major presiding over the program. Delegates attended state and national con- ventions. " The conventions were great for mak- ing friends and getting new ideas, " said Wilson. The club also supported the dance-a-thon for muscular dystrophy and helped KDLX in their Christmas drive to help the needy. The Agriculture Club also combined social activities with learning. President Mike Smith felt the club was " a place where people with like interests in agriculture meet. " " Aggies " worked and played well together as shown by their variety of accomplishments. They built an arena, used for two horse shows, socialized at hayrides and barnwarmings and judged contests for local FFA chapters. Wednesday night meetings kept " aggies " in- formed on current issues such as the farm strike. Those who attended a summer conven- tion in Canada helped introduce ideas for the leadership conference held in February. The club served the campus by maintaining interest in agriculture and recruiting students. Outstanding members were recognized with awards and scholarships at their spring banquet. AG CLUB.

Both organizations improved the appearance of the campus. Phi Delta Kappa built six picnic tables with benches for college park and provided benches outside the in- dustrial arts buildings. Theta Mu Gamma cleaned up after Homecoming and used the revenue for their annual trip. Other selling activities were publishing a campus directory and collecting computer cards and printout sheets for recycl- ing. Service to high school students was a part of projects for both groups. TMG sponsored a Math Olympiad during spring semester where 500 high school students competed. PDK ' s High Performance Team took their economical, energy-saving Pinto to Barnard High School for a demonstration. Neither club limited their activities to Maryville.

Psychology Club Interest in certain majors led students to join departmental organizations for further educational benefits. Members found that par- ticipating in major-related clubs added insights into their fields. The American Chemical Society gave Chemistry majors an opportunity to gain prac- tical experience. " The club helped members help themselves in the chemistry field, " said Mike Barnes, vice-president. Members cleaned up after two football games, sold lab coats, and handbooks for chemistry and physics to finance their ac- tivities. The club also sponsored several infor- mal get togethers and picnics along with field trips. " It gave chemistry majors a chance to realize what chemistry was and where it would take them, " Barnes said. The National Student Speech and Hearing Association (NSSHA) formed this year so speech pathology majors could gain outside experience. The new organization was a nationally recognized branch of the American Speech Association. Members gave hearing evaluations at St. Gregory ' s elementary school to practice in- structional skills, attended the National ASA Convention in Chicago, visited the Boys Town Clinic and Iowa School for the Deaf. The club sold caramel apples at football games to help finance their activities. The Psychology Club also took field trips to further their education. Members attended the annual Psychology Fair in Kansa s in order to gain a broader outlook on psychology today. NSSHA.

Geology club members had a chance " to get together and plan things on their own, " as they worked at money-making projects, had get-together parties and helped set up for various campus functions. The club was a departmental organization open to anyone interested. Highlighting their activities was the oppor- tunity to help Astronaut James Irwin with his lunar rock display when he appeared on cam- pus for a February lecture. Besides their activities, the club offered a scholarship on an academic basis. Selecting scholarship applicants for the Nodaway County Soil Conservation Board was a main job of the Soil Conservation club, the student chapter of the Soil Conservation Socie- ty of America. Among their activities the members enjoyed were speakers who discussed bee-keeping, wildlife, soil and pollution at the meetings. Besides attending meetings, the group also participated in other activities. They took a field trip to Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge, picked up trash around Nodaway Lake and helped the local Nonpoint Pollution Board with the problems of soil erosion. Several trips were also taken by the Pre-Med club as they visited professional schools in Kansas City, Omaha and Columbia. This local club attempted to provide information to members about different programs on campus so members could find out more in their special field. To further their activities, the members collected donor cards for the Lion ' s club Eye Bank Drive and helped set up for the Northwest Mo. Regional Health Fair.

Tliree relatively recent additions have been Cir- cle K, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Accounting Society. Circle K ' s formation began last summer. " We started with a membership drive, " said Presi- dent Michael Kinman. Publicity included peo- ple talking about the group. " During the fall semester we had an informal get-together in the Union. " The group was chartered with 22 members. Their main concern was service projects which started with painting a house. From there, they visited the home for mentally retarded citizens in Maryville. Another non-profit, relatively new organiza- tion was the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Their main goal was " to bring out the Christian faith in every person through athletics, " said President Matt Borgard. " To be a member, you didn ' t have to be an athlete, " said Borgard. People involved in the group ranged from varsity sports members to those involved in intramurals. The meetings did not involve sports. They were basically centered around various readings and discussions. The Accounting Society was started in 1976. They were set up for accounting majors on an " associate " and " active " basis. " We provided service for other accounting students and members of the community, " said President Shannon Green. During the year tutoring services were offered for beginning ac- counting students. They also participated in VITA, Volunteer Income Tax Assistants. The program helped qualifying students and citizens with their income tax forms.

But Christ ' s Way members did more than own a house. Two Bible study youth meetings were held each week for members, so each had the chance to decide what the New Testament meant to them. Another activity of the group in- cluded youth rallies and gospel teams that went to nearby churches to perform Sunday ser- vices. Members were also encouraged to do evangelical work. Taking the initiative to get involved also described Sigma Society. Helping others who were not as privileged as themselves was what Sigma Society was all about. Members sent food to a local family at Thanksgiving and visited patients at St. Francis Hospital on Valentine ' s Day. Country Cousins and the University Friends Program were other projects of Sigma Society which involved area children. Often these little sisters were taken to the park, to a movie or to a party in their honor. Presents were given to them at Christmas. Members also helped out at graduation, built a Homecoming float and did volunteer work around the community. Getting involved also described the Tower 4- H Club. They participated in several events throughout the year, some for service and some for fun. Members worked at basketball games sell- ing soda, collected for the United Way Fund and helped with officer-training meetings at nearby 4-H clubs. They also visited the nearby Sheltered Workshop and the Wayne Van Zomeren Group Home to help the mentally retarded and handicapped. H iKn SIGMA SOCIETY.

Meetings were held weekly to give science fic- tion buffs a chance to get together and discuss the possibilities of the future. " It was a chance to get together and meet people who shared a common bond, " said John McMillen, vice-president. " We took field trips to see " Close Encounters of the Third kind " and " Star Wars. " " The Third Foundation gave students who enjoyed reading science fiction an outlet for their interests, " said Dr. Carroll Fry, sponsor. The Youth Association for Retarded Citizens was another organization that believed in help- ing people through personal encounters. Twen- ty student volunteers cooperated with the Maryville Sheltered Workshop. More vocational activities were added to the program for the year. " We had recreational ac- tivities such as bowling and pool, but we also added an adult basic education and living ac- tivity, " said President Dave Roed. " The Abel class taught basic skills such as cooking and cleaning. " " Members kept the club going, because everyone did their part, " Roed said. " People joined for their own self-satisfaction in helping other people. " The Sunday Night Supper Club was also In- terested in helping people. " The club was organized for fellowship, " said Chris Gilbert, representative. Members challenged the Wesley Center to a basketball game, making it the first co-ed basketball game played on campus. The organization finished third in the Homecoming house decorating competition. .Third Foundation YARC Sunday Night Supper Club. ORGANIZATIONS 187 Organizations like the Chinese Club, Messengers and Student Missouri State Teachers Association (Student MSTA) provid- ed students an opportunity to share common interests and meet new friends. The Chinese Club shared their Oriental traditions with Americans on Chinese Day. Ex- hibits included a martial arts demonstration, a Thai dancer, folk songs, movies and a Chinese dinner. Nearly 300 people attended the festivities. Highlighting Chinese Festival Day was the club ' s presentation of a 100-foot ceremonial dragon to the University. President B.D. Owens was given the honor of painting the dragon ' s eyes, which symbolized his giving direction to Chinese students and the University. According to Lily Wu, former president, the Chinese Club helped foreigners who " had trou- ble speaking English and were too shy to make new friends. " The Messengers provided a way for students to make Christian friends. Besides weekly Bible studies and cost suppers, the club ado pted a ward at St. Joseph State Hospital. Every month the group would play bingo, sing and serve refreshments to the patients. However, lack of attendance hurt the club. President Renaldo Nizzi felt the size of the club had decreased because " students were in- volved in studies and other activities, there was just no time. " A club that didn ' t take-up students ' time was Student MSTA " It was an organization that gave a lot, without having to put a lot into It, " said Kathleen Shoemaker, president. The club ' s speakers at their monthly meetings covered education-oriented topics. Their major project was sponsoring a Teaching Fair for high school Future Teachers of America. 188 ORGANIZATIONS MESSENGERS. FRONT ROW: Ann Bohling, Sally Oestmann, Rebecca Boettner. Leo Hance.

Coming to a relatively small campus defied the old wives ' tale of becoming just a number as freshmen, upper classmen, and faculty mingled freely. Students chose to identify with any of the several cliques on campus or else disappear into the security of being alone. Although divided by classes and majors, students still shared a common bond of lear- ning. Faculty members helped further student- administration relations by getting to know each individual a little bit better. Smaller classes added to a more open, friendly class at- mosphere, and instructors seemed more human. An increasing number of foreign students added an extra flair to campus personalities as a part of their world and traditions became •.•. ' . A combination of 4500 students living and studying together on one campus resulted in a mixture of personalities. Their hobbies, habits, credos and mannerisms made the ur ii ifity unified and diversified. .

For tlie 647 part and full-time graduate students, one degree was not enough and they sought advanced degrees. Students returned to continue the same line of study or to begin an entirely new field of interest. " I came back to school because I didn ' t want to work in my major field, " explained Deb Marshall. " I am going after a completely different degree because I just don ' t want to work in retail. " As a married graduate student. Deb found her studies restricted her time at home. " I spent less time with my husband, " she said, " because I often had work to do. " Even though graduate studies cut into her family life, Deb found little difference between graduate and undergraduate classes. " The term papers were harder but the material wasn ' t much different. " Although graduate students are allowed to take up to 12 hours, many, like Sally Burley, take a reduced load because they must also support themselves and their families. " The number of hours you carry depends on what type of job you have, " Sally said. " I ' m carrying six hours because I work full time. " Tom Shannon, graduate assistant to the In- tramural Director, studied economics as an un- dergraduate but returned this year to study physical education. He found that using what you learn was distinctive of graduate work. " You take information as a graduate student and then apply it, " Tom explained. " The facts are presented and you must agree. " Foreign students have extra problems with graduate studies. Li-na Chen, from the Republic of China, received her B.S. in China. " Grad classes here are different, " she said, " but the teachers help me a lot. " Li-na, who worked on a medical technology degree, was appreciative of the information she received. " I like to learn and the information will be helpful to me. " Another graduate student, Tom Norris, agreed that his classes were a continuation of his undergraduate classes. " Things are pretty much the same. In fact I don ' t find much difference at all, " he said.

We ' ve all had times when we ' ve had to wait in line with brothers and sisters to use the bathroom; but sixty brothers and sisters is a lit- tle unheard of, even in Nigeria. Tony Aburime is from Nigeria and his father has seven wives and sixty children. " I have always praised my father for being able to tackle the problems, " said Aburime. Traditional laws allowed polygamy, but it seemed to be declining in the country. " I guess there are fewer girls nowadays. None of them want to share a husband, " he said. According to Aburime, Nigeria is a modern country with much western influence. He added that they had " all of the things that you have here except the space program. " Aburime noticed soccer, the most popular sport in Nigeria, was rising in popularity everywhere but in the United States. " I was sur- prised to find It ' s not really a popular sport here, " said Aburime. " Even the young boys en- joy soccer. They start out playing with soccer balls the size of regular tennis balls. " He started playing very young and was quite a good soccer player. Aburime came to America three years ago and attended New York State University. He was a senior majoring in art and hoped to return to Nigeria after he got his masters degree. He transfered to NWMSU because he ' d heard from his brother that the University offered an excellent art program so he decided to come here to complete his degree.

Walker ' s job at the Kansas City Diagnostic Center helped dispel myths associated with retarded people and juvenile offenders. " Peo- ple feel uncomfortable working with the mental- ly handicapped, especially Mongoloids, because they might look, talk, or act differently. I found retarded people to be the happiest peo- ple in the world, " she said. Walker felt the juveniles she worked with were pretty special people. " They ' re greatly in- fluenced by peer pressure, but on a one-to-one basis, they ' re very good, " she said. Walker would prefer working with juvenile offenders because she related better. According to Walker, benefits from her job have been innumerable. " I ' ve grown-up and am more open-minded and perceptive of others, " she said. " I got satisfaction in little ways; mainly that they trusted me as a friend, not a dis- ciplinarian. " Although Walker ' s a special education ma- ior, she felt those without her skills are also effective volunteers. " It doesn ' t take a special kind of person, " she said. " Working with the handicapped improved my self-image. I get more from them than I give to them. They are the nicest, warmest people in the world. " Robert Chadwick. Business Management Ron Chambers.

For the past two summers, Terry Heath work- ed at the Coffee Gardens Restaurant at Kansas City ' s Crown Center Hotel. It was just part of her job to wait on celebrities and well-known per- sonalities who might come in anytime. " It was fun and educational too, " said Heath, a senior English major. One of the things she enjoyed was working during the Republican National Convention in 1976. " It was interesting to hear all the delegates discussing the conven- tion over lunch. " During the convention, she met Henry Kissinger and Mrs. Gerald Ford. While waiting on famous personalities would seem exciting. Heath sometimes didn ' t recognize them. For instance, she had almost finished waiting on the Captain and Tenille before she realized who they were. " They just looked like ordinary people, " she laughed. Another time, she didn ' t recognize Peter Frampton. " I thought he was just some high school kid. " Other celebrities Heath met and waited on in- cluded Jim Nabors, Wolfman Jack, Tony Orlan- do, and groups such as Heart, Kiss, the Beach Boys, George Benson ' s band, and the Com- modores.

Although there wasn ' t a standing line for the first of the sessions, attendance soon picked up as news of the venture spread on the youthful grapevine. " I only had one or two children the first cou- ple of weeks, " Francis remembered. " But I en- couraged them to tell their friends about it, and ' d go outside where the children were playing and ask if they wanted to come in and see what we were doing. " After awhile, about a dozen children showed up regularly. After all, " no child could pass up a new box of crayons! " Even though " it wasn ' t a class for them, " she said, " it was a learning experience for me.

Joining Weight Watchers Aug. 17, 1976, Conaway emerged 51 weeks later— ainnost the year to the date— Aug. 16, 1977, 85 pounds lighter at her goal weight. Conaway, a senior elementary education major, said, " I decided that since I was going to be a teacher, I wanted my students to respect me. But I had to respect myself first and have confidence, which I didn ' t have. " Working together to lose weight was one of the benefits she said she got from the Weight Watchers program. " It was nice to know other people had the same problem I d id. " Losing on the average one and a half pounds a week, she said she never " cheated " during the time she was on the program. " I just couldn ' t, " she said. For one thing, she explain- ed, she had to pay each week to go to the meetings. Being newlyweds, Conaway said she and her husband, Jim, had to scrimp for the money and special food. I didn ' t want to come home and tell Jim that I had gained weight after we scrounged for money, " she said. Conaway, who said she had had a problem with her weight since she was a child, enjoyed for the first time shopping for and buying new clothes. " But, " she said, " I know I ' ll always have to watch my weight. " Being on the program did help her develop good eating habits which have stuck. " Now I can just eat vegetables and fruits for snacks and be satisfied. Also, I eat slower and eat only the right foods. I don ' t snack on impulse anymore either, instead I find something else to do. " Since she shed her excess weight, Conaway felt her life had changed. " I can do things on my own and speak for myself now. I didn ' t feel con- fident in public before without someone else. " Being at the weight she had worked so hard for gave Conaway a new perspective on life and helped her become the kind of person she wanted to be. " I see my future now, before I couldn ' t, " she concluded. 212 SENIORS 11 f ' Diinds ■■ ' LEfT:Sj i p ' , V Charissa Ma.

J Just hanging around the theater Acting and directing outside the university environment proved to be valuable experience for senior Jon Kruse. Kruse left school for a semester partially to " try some theater and see what was going on. " When a county Historical Society decided to do a Chatauqua, they asked Kruse to help. " They offered me some money to direct it and put it together, " he said. He accepted the posi- tion and began to work around a Bicentennial theme. From there, he moved on to a semi- professional acting position. " I heard about auditions for You ' re a Good Man, Charlie Brown ' in Omaha. I ' d done the play before and I decided it would be neat to just go and read for them. " He landed the role of Charlie Brown. Acting in that play was very rewarding for Kruse. " The director stressed more inner thought and less outside actions. I didn ' t agree with him right away. " But after thinking about it for awhile, Kruse changed his mind. " From there on that was probably the most valuable thing I ' d learned. It has helped in every play since then. " Kruse returned to school the following semester to complete his degree. " Ideally I want to perform. Theater is something I enjoy. It is always a challenge learning how to be someone else. " Kruse wants to get his masters degree, but not right away. " There ' s a lot of things I ' ve missed. I just don ' t know enough about acting yet.

At 21, Gary Frost l nows. Frost has always had an interest in security. His father, a long time municipal court judge in North Kansas City, provided a law enforcement environment for him. He began by riding with his hometown police and later took pictures for the prosecuting attorney ' s office. In 1974, Frost worked at Worlds of Fun as a parking lot security officer. Part of his job in- volved patrolling the surrounding wooded areas for people who might attempt slipping through the fences without paying. For Frost the job is exciting and offers some definite " ups. " Through his position with locker room security and personal escort at Chief ' s Stadium, he escorted the Eagles, Beach Boys, Chicago, Mick dagger and The Who. Although he was still employed at Chief ' s Stadium, he took classes at the University and served as security investigator for the Security Department here. As security investigator. Frost was second in command. He investigated about five crimes a week which, according to Frost, was enough to keep him busy. Pleased with his work at the Security Depart- ment and with the job they did, Gary cited com- munication as their strong suit. " Our depart- ment is made up of generations and can com- municate with any generation easily, " said Frost.

Steam rolls. The occasional breaking of a glass could be heard. A cafeteria dishroom worker could be seen heaving another steaming load of silverware off the conveyor away from the dishwasher. The casual glance focuses in on the scene. Suddenly, it was obvious that the arms lifting that load off the machine were attached to a female body. Those arms belonged to the student dis- hroom supervisor Donna Bovaird. Bovaird, in charge of eight to ten students, was one of 16 student supervisors. Of the 16 she is the only female. " I felt I had to prove myself— perhaps more so than a guy would have had to— partly because of the heavy work and partly hesitation as to whether guys would want to take orders from me, " Bovaird said. Bovaird, a senior majoring in computer science, feels the position was " fulfillment of a personal goal. " And partly because of her farm background, she admitted that she " liked the hard work of the dishroom. " In addition, she wanted the job because she felt she was qualified for it. Those qualifications Bovaird says included the knowledge of all the dishroom jobs, sorting and stacking dishes on the belt, loading the dishwasher, unloading and putting dishes away and cleaning the dishroom area. Did the hard work pay off? As a student supervisor, Bovaird received $2.30 an hour and a 15-meal plan. Would she have given up the supervisor job to move to the more casual party waitress job? " I doubt it, " said Bovaird. SENIORS Worley Zuniga 225 Judy Ackerman, Fr. Kim Acklin, Jr. Gail Adams, Soph. Rita Adams, Fr. Scott Adams, Fr.

Brown breaks broadcast barrier Women broadcasting sports events on cam- pus was unheard of until Katliy Brown arrived and became the university ' s first female play- by-play announcer. Brown became interested in sports broad- casting because of her high school background. " I ' m from Northeast Nodaway High School and that ' s a sports-oriented school, " said Brown. " Sports was just something that I really enjoyed and I knew I didn ' t have time to participate in sports so I knew that I could get involved through broad- casting. " At first, Brown received a doubtful reception from her listeners because " they didn ' t think a woman could do sports, " she said. " I showed them I can do my job as well as anyone. " After people adjusted to hearing a woman ' s voice broadcasting a sporting event, they began to accept Brown ' s capabilities. " We ' ve had lots of comments from people in the com- munity saying that it sounds good to have a girl on the radio that knows what she ' s talking about in a sports-broadcast situation, " she said. Although Brown has been accepted by her male co-workers, she still feels they are a little skeptical. " The males may be a little uneasy at times to think that a girl ' s moving into what would usually be their area, " admitted Brown. By adding sports to her other broadcasting talents, Brown has opened up an area for future job opportunities. " Sports and news combined would be a good area to get into, " she said. " I would not be the average woman broadcaster that could just be a disc jockey or read news because I could also do sports, since I have ex- perience doing play-by-play, " Brown conclud- ed.

More than a snake in the grass Most people like to curl up at night to watch T.V. But Gary Daniel, senior, liked to watch his boa constrictor curl up in his T.V. Daniel, a wildlife major, acquired a boa con- strictor from a graduating friend, who couldn ' t take it home because of parental protest. Hous- ing it in an empty T.V. in his Richardson dorm room, Daniel watched the snake through the front glass. Although he said his Resident Assistant didn ' t like it, and the neighbors were afraid of it, Daniel explained that his boa constrictor, nam- ed " Beau Geste, " was " really mean only because he ' s been mistreated. " Even though they are not poisonous, Daniel explained that boa constrictors are fast at striking and they have razor-sharp bites. Beau Geste weighed 70 pounds and was six feet long, and should grow to be about 15 feet long, according to Daniel. He said his friend acquired it from a dog pound in Iowa, where it had been found in someone ' s front lawn. Since boa constrictors are native of the Tropics, Daniel speculated it came from a pet store, and the owner got tired of it. " It has scars where it had been beaten, " said Daniel. Since he took a herpitology (study of amphibians or reptiles) class last spring, Daniel said he liked snakes. " I had no interest in them before, but we went snake hunting in the Ozarks and had to catch several kinds which was a lot of fun. " I Steve Brightwell, Fr Steve Brock, Fr. Bruce Brosam, Fr.

" So far, " she said, crossing her fingers, " I ' ve only had one accident. I hit some gravel at night and went down, but was not hurt. " According to Jensen, novice cyclists should start small. " Everyone wants a more powerful bike, " said the St. Louis cyclist. " However, " she continued, " Beginners should work their way up. Many riders return to the machine they were most comfortable with anyway. " The biting Maryville cold and wind did not in- terfere with Jensen ' s regular jaunts about town. She simply pulled on extra layers of clothing. However, snow presented a hazard. " My bike couldn ' t handle it, " she stated. " I just wasn ' t equipped. " As well as starting small, Jensen also ad- monished bikers to become acquainted with their machine and motorcycle safety rules. " You have to know your machine ' s limitations, " she advised. " I also suggest wearing a helmet wherever and whenever you ride. I would never go out without one, " Jensen concluded. ri« IW ' wk i- ' • ' ' Jeanann Cobb, Fr. Gay Lynn Cockrell. Soph.

" We didn ' t have anything to put on our walls like everybody else, " Dave explained, " so my roommate and I thought up the beer cup room divider. " " We would collect the cups and hide them in the bushes at parties, " Dave said. " At one party, someone came up and told us that it was okay, we didn ' t have to clean up the house. " They dug in a few trashcans and also asked people to save cups. " At first, people thought we were crazy, " Dave said. " It took a long time to wash out all of those cups, but it only took a total of three-to-four hours to glue them together, " he added. " Everybody thought we were sniffing glue for a while. It got kind of boring gluing the cups together, but I did it while I was watching T.V. " The wall has been very successful. " It turned out pretty good, " Dave said. " Everybody seems fascinated by it. Even strangers drop in to see the wall. " After the year was over, the wall was razed and the cups were thrown away.

Personally, he ' s Scott McCoy, a city boy turned country. McCoy ' s interest in agriculture stems to his days at Admiral Farragut Naval Academy in Tom ' s River, N.J. " My grandparents visited me each weekend and took me to a farm where they bought eggs and poultry, " McCoy said. " In ninth grade, I transferred to George School in Pennsylvania, where I played tennis, " he continued. " There was a small cornfield behind the courts. Sometimes I hit the balls over the fence on purpose so I could check out the crop, " he said in his distinctive Eastern ac- cent. One of McCoy ' s ambitions was to own his own farm. " When you start out today, you almost have to work in town also, " he said. " That ' s why I chose agri-business. With plan- ning, my farm should be nearly self-sufficient, energy-saving and ecologically sound, " he said.

He became interested in it when he was a nine- year-old Boy Scout. His interest kept growing and in 1971 he was licensed by the Northwest School of Taxidermy in Omaha. In his basement, Kackley has skinned various birds and animals. The normal procedure is to keep the skull, and to replace the other bones with wire and stuff the skins with hemp. Kackley ' s specimens came from local hunters who wanted to preserve their pheasant and fish. In a freezer in his garage, Kackley had a coyote, a snake and several birds waiting their turn to be mounted. The most unusual bird Kackley mounted was a snowy white owl, rare for this area. Kackley also made a bear skin rug. Mounting the animals required specialized equipment. Kackley ' s supplies included wire, hemp, preservatives, knives, scalpels and bone saws. " Learning how to mount them in life-like positions was really tough, " said Kackley. He admitted birds were the hardest to mount because of their skins. Time was the major factor for Kackley because his pre-med studies didn ' t leave much time for him to pursue his hobby. He was forced to save most of his business for vacations or when he needed extra money. Suzanne Groff, Fr. Helen Groh, Soph. Lynda Grossman, Soph. Patricia Grover, Fr. Anna Groves, Soph.

Deb Carriker, senior, spent her summer in Iran. Her father worked for Fluor Engineers and Construction and helped build what will be the world ' s largest from-the-ground-up oil refinery. From Missouri to Iran, what a big change! Carriker lived in College Gardens, and paid $155 a month for rent. In Iran, she would pay $500 a month for rent for the same-sized apart- ment. " Living was expensive, " said Carriker, " a box of cereal was about $2. American food was high, but their food was not. " While in Iran, Carriker worked in the plant ' s warehouse and kept records of materials. The Carrikers lived in Esfahan, which used to be the capital of Persia. Some of the items Carriker brought back in- cluded a hand-painted tablecloth and a brass platter. On the tablecloth, colors were overlaid. The pattern was carved in wood blocks, dipped in dye and pressed on the material. When Carriker bought all her souvenirs, she noticed it was easy to go through a lot of money. " It seemed like Monopoly money— like you weren ' t spending anything, " said Carriker. Among her souvenirs were some rials, the in- tricately designed Iranian money. Her apartment displayed her love for travel. In front of her couch was a Moslem prayer rug. Carved, wooden figures lined her shelves and a bright colored African batik covered one wall. 252 UNDERGRADUATES Hawks Henson ABOVE: Dracula and a mummy have a " goulishly " good time at KDLX ' s Halloween remote.

In 1974, she purchased a five-year old gelding named Thunder and learned to ride English style. While visiting her sister and brother-in-law in Mexico City, Lynch was taught by masterful horsemen. During her four-month stay, she furthered her knowledge of hunt seat and jum- ping. " My biggest thrill was riding in a show with one of the top Mexican riders, " said Lynch, " We won first place in a jumping class by mere seconds. " Although interest in English style riding has gained momentum since the last Olympiad, it remained foreign to Midwesterners. Lynch gave demonstVations at area horseshows and hoped to incorporate English pleasure classes into western shows. " I entered a jumping class in a local show recently, not knowing that the object was to see who could jump the highest. " she recalled. " There was only one unpainted jump, and Thunder was not accustomed to it. I fell off after completing the jump. " she said, " But I finished the event and won over a western rider. " Lynch ' s dream is to ride in the American Royal or an actual hunt. " However, " she said, " you must be invited to a hunt and the American Royal is rather elite, too. " Lynch, a junior, planned to be a physical therapist. She wanted to introduce han- dicapped people to the world of horsemanship as an exercise to help them regain muscle con- trol. _ 256 UNDERGRADUATES Ihnat Jannings " Ssi h- i " " « l-Ql .unn.ll Phillip Jardon, Soph.

Not because they don ' t care, but because Scott happens to hold a brown belt in the art of Kung Fu. A 1977 graduate of Lathrop High School, Scott came to NWMSU with six years ex- perience in the study of this martial art. By the age of 14, he had achieved the first level white belt, at 15, he had the green belt, and in August of 1976, he obtained his brown belt. This leaves only the highest award, the black belt, yet to be achieved by Ray in an art form he almost lost interest in. " At first I wasn ' t too impressed, because I didn ' t thi nk Kung Fu would be practical for real situations, " explained Scott. " But then I started 260 UNDERGRADUATES Konon Lassiter going to tournaments and seeing people per- forming the art and working with weapons and I became very interested. " Scott started at the age of 12 under the direc- tion of instructor Thomas Cathie of Lathrop. Scott said the instructor evaluated the student and awarded the belt degree to the individual. As Scott became interested in the art and began to advance in belt degrees he found his classmates responding to him in a different way. " The first year the kidding started, the se- cond year that stopped, and by the third year everybody wanted to be my friend, " said Scott, " But I have no desire to fight anyone with Kung Fu and up to now I ' ve not had to and I hope I never do. I ' m just interested in the art and par- ticipating in tournaments. " LEFT: Ray Scott demonstrates the form which won him the brown belt in Kung Fu.

That was the adventure that Joe Farrell, NWMSU freshman, found as a scout ranger at the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM last summer. As a biology major with a special interest in wildlife-ecology, Farrell was selected from thousands of applicants as one of the 100 summer rangers. " Being a ranger was an experience I will never forget. It ' s a place where you are con- stantly being tested as an individual, " explained Farrell. Some of his duties as a ranger Involved train- ing Scouts about the advantages of hiking and backpacking as a means of survival. " What I did was get a group of 8-12 set up for a backpacking and mountain-climbing trip. I helped them set up on the trails. " mentioned Farrell. " I then stayed with them for two days, giving instruction, checking over maps and helping them notice things about the outdoors. Then I left them with their Scout leader and had two days to myself coming back. " However, being a ranger was not all fun and games. There were a lot of dangers that could suddenly multiply and catch a person off- guard, one of which was a forest fire that broke out on the ranch. " Fighting forest fires was perhaps the hardest work I did, " said Farrell. " I woke up at four in the morning and carried 40-pound water pumps through the infested forest until late evening. " Farrell planned to return to Philmont this summer and continue his work as a ranger. IVIelanie Mayberry. Jr. Eldon McAlexander, Fr. Joan McCabe. Jr. Mary McClure, Jr. Nancy McClurg, Soph.

Driskill compared herself to Streisand: " I have a nose like hers, but it ' s the only thing we have in common. " Amazingly, she was the only member in her family besides her aunt who could carry a tune. " My mother won ' t sing at church anymore because I laugh at her, " she said. Musical notes floated out from underneath her door and filled the halls all year long. " Songs always add to holidays. They can cheer you up and keep you company. " said Driskill. " Unfortunately, I didn ' t study very well with music on because I concentrated on it, instead of what I was studying, " commented the music minded freshman. " Sometimes, I just get the urge to sing, " ex- plained Driskill. " It expresses the way I feel, " she added. Driskill would like to sing for a living. Teaching? Singing professionally?

Diana Zipf spent her weekends playing in her family ' s band. At first she wasn ' t excited about the idea, but she grew to enjoy it. Now. " if they have a job any weekends I ' m home. I ' ll play. " she said. The music which the family performed varied. " We played all kinds of music because the audiences ranged in ages. At wedding dances there may have been three generations of people. We played country-western, rock, pop. polkas and waltzes. " Zipf ' s favorite was pop music. " My sister and I liked slow music we could sing harmony on. " Learning to play was a rushed endeavor. After only a few weeks Zipf appeared on stage with her parents. She didn ' t learn to read notes so she played by ear. " My dad would just say ' ok, we ' re playing this song; it ' s in the key of C, play. ' Since I didn ' t have the notes in front of me, I just listened to where I thought it was going. " Playing with the band led Zipf into musical activities in high school. These carried over so when she had time, she enjoyed just sitting down at the piano and playing.

Whitney, a junior majoring in industrial arts, and son of assistant music professor, Gilbert Whitney, combined his background in music with his industrial arts major to create two dulcimers and a Celtic harp. He was also work- ing on a classical guitar. It was when Whitney took a beginning woods course that he made his first dulcimer, which is a three-stringed biblical instrument that sounds almost like bagpipes. Once Whitney had made the forms for the first dulcimer, the second didn ' t take as much time to finish. After he completed his second dulcimer Whitney decided to build a harpsicord. But due to lack of funds, he resorted to making a harp. Using a kit for this instrument, he added many of his own ideas to it. Whitney got the idea for the classical guitar because he was interested in buying one. " I checked out the prices and found it would cost $300 or $400. I thought I could turn one out just as good , " the music enthusiast said. He created the plans for his guitar after looking at three books and combining some of the methods of each book into a plan he wanted. " When I get this done and have all the bugs out, I want to make a matching set of 12- stringed guitars and another classical guitar, " said the ambitious Whitney. Whitney said that " in the future, 1 may com- bine my interest in music and wood and build instruments. " Leslie Vance, Soph. Brad Vandekamp, Soph.

Each fan had his own special athlete who basked in the glory and recognition of being a superstar. Yet, the unsung heroes behind the scenes were just as important as the players on the field. These stars devoted even more time than the super-greats, but received little public recogni- tion for their efforts. Garry Workman, junior, was one of six stu- dent trainers for the Bearcat athletic teams, and, was working on a double major in physical education and health with a minor in coaching. " I ' ve taken many hours of subjects that deal with the body and injuries, but with the other training, I could treat more serious injuries, such as trauma, than I normally would treat with regular first aid, " said Workman. During the football season, Workman ' s duties increased. For a 2 p.m. game, the trainers arrived at 9 a.m. " We got the locker rooms ready, fixed ice bags and the ice chests, and, taped ankles. Later on in the day, we did speciality taping on the team members. " At n oon, the trainers set up the field. They took out water jugs, ice chests, the splints, stretchers, trash cans, oxygen kits and other assorted medical supplies. " We were prepared to check every player that came off the field, es- pecially after a blow to the head, " Workman said. The trainers ' medical duties consisted of Im- mediate care for injuries, transportation of in- jured players and diagnosis of injuries. " We weren ' t doctors, though, " he added. " If we can ' t help a player, he is sent on to the hospital. " Workman put in an average of four hours a day training and carried a load of 18 academic hours. Workman enjoyed his work, even though there was no praise, no applause like that which the players received. The job was tough, but well worth the time and trouble. Janet Watkins, Fr.

BELOW; Lending a sympathetic ear. David Sundberg makes students feel at home. Listening . . . key to understanding With an associate degree In agriculture and a bachelor of arts degree in German language and literature, Dave Sundberg never an- ticipated a career in counseling psychology. Currently, the director of the Counseling Center, Sundberg originally wanted to be a veterinarian or a farmer. " I worked on a farm as a youth, " said Sundberg, " and I decided to pursue a career in animal husbandry. " But after receiving his associate degree in agriculture in 1958 from the University College in Farmingdale, N.Y., Sundberg enlisted in the armed services, and was stationed in Germany. There, he developed the interest that motivated him to complete a teaching degree in German language and literature when he returned to the United States. After receiving his bachelor of arts degree from the University of New York at Sto- nybrook, Sundberg was offered a job as special assistant to the Dean of Students there. Under this new program where he worked closely with college students, Sundberg said that this led him to talk to many students. " I found out that I could listen well; I seemed to help them grow and develop. " When a resident counseling program was es- tablished at Stonybrook after he ' d been there two years, Sundberg joined the staff. " I found that I enjoyed the work, " said Sundberg, " but I was limited by how far I could go with students in terms of support, help and exploration, because I had not the formal skills and training. " As a result, in 1970 Sundberg decided to do graduate work in counseling psychology at the University of Missou ri at Columbia. Sundberg became Director of Counseling after meeting Dr. Phil Hayes, dean of students, at a Chicago convention in 1974. " We got to talking about NWMSU and the director ' s job that was open here. I liked what I heard about the University, it being in a small town in a rural area. I visited the campus, liked what I saw, liked the students I met and decided to accept the job. " Through counseling, Sundberg has developed the philosophy " people are doing the best they know how to do at any one point in their lives. " Sundberg drew an analogy to sum up his view of counseling and his life. " Animal husbandry feeds the body, and German language and literature feeds the mind, but psychology works with the whole person.

He made his lectures more valuable by backing them with personal experiences. Dr. Augustin felt his travels benefitted students. " I would expect that just the personal experience of having observed the physical and cultural environment and being able to share these observations added an extra dimension to my lectures. " Besides listening to Dr. Augustin, students were given chances to do actual work in different areas. Dr. Augustin planned trips so students were not bound to a single environ- ment. He planned a Yucatan Peninsula trip to " encourage the students to involve themselves in field research in a setting that would be uni- que to them. " Creating a positive learning atmosphere was one of Dr. Augustin ' s major objectives " Geography shouldn ' t be taught from a text- book, " he said. " It should be taught from the real world.

Dr. Easteria, biology instructor, has long had a " deep interest in bats and rep- tiles, especially snakes. " " Bats are the most abused and overlooked species and even some of my fellow biologists are prejudiced against them, " Dr. Easterla ex- plained. " I ' m trying to overcome this prejudice through education. It ' s a challenge and I ' m always for the underdog. " Dr. Easterla attributed part of his interests to being raised in the Ozarks. " It was a good en- vironment for someone interested in the sciences. I ' ve known this was what I wanted to study ever since I knew my own name. " " I ' m basically a naturalist so I taught for nine months and then traveled for three, " Dr. Easterla said. He discovered a new species of cave beetle and it was eventually named after him. Enthusiasm has sometimes gotten Dr. Easterla into trouble. He left his wife alone in the woods on their first date to chase a great horned owl. Another time he leaped from his car to observe a new species. " I didn ' t even get the car stopped before I was running for a better look, " Dr. Easterla said. " Luckily my wife got the car stopped. " His interests resulted in a new wildlife con- servation major. " There was a real need for it. We started the program about three years and now there ' s over 60 students enrolled in the course, " he explained. Souveniers decorated Dr. Easterla ' s office and accompanying them were many of his stories of his exploits.

" But his friend persisted and Jones end- ed up on the courts and got his initial taste of the sport by trouncing his schoolmate. " I went out and we played some and I beat him real bad, " said Jones. " That was the first time I ever played tennis and that ' s when I was in the jighth grade. " Since his first game, Jones has become ex- tremely interested in the sport. Even though he was hooked on the sport, he did not play on high school or college squads. He considered playing on the university team when he attended NWMSU, but decided to con- centrate on other areas. " The chairman of the English Department at the time, Dr. Grube, was the tennis coach and he tried to get me to go out for the team, " he said, " but I was always in- terested in studying, so I didn ' t do it. I was a serious student and had little time for anything else. " Once he began playing the game more, he became heavily involved with it. " I think I con- sider tennis as more than just a hobby. I sub- scribe to several magazines and I string rackets, " said Jones. " Except for my work I probably think more about tennis than anything. " But Jones does more than just think about tennis. In the summer he practically lived on the court. During June, July and August he played over 120 games and totaled 302 games last year. " We had one stretch last summer when we played 40 straight games without a single day off, " he said. Although he enjoys being a participant, he has trouble just watching the game. " People who are tennis fans are players. They ' re not like the guy who can ' t play pro football and so he really enjoys watching from the sidelines. The guys who like tennis are the guys who get out and play, " said Jones, and that was just what he did. 298 FACULTY Engelbrecht Fogal r ' ' ' »«r Ibl) ' t I rfB LEFT: Equipped for the game, Paul Jones keeps the ball bouncing.

" I took up swimming, and jogged when the pool wasn ' t available, " said Dr. Harr. " Six or seven years ago, the college pool was in great demand, so, I became a dedicated jogger, " he said. Last year, Dr. Harr thought his jogging days were over. Persistent hip and lower back pains were diagnosed as degenerative arthritis. However, he was determined not to give in. " I decreased my distance from six to three miles daily, " said Dr. Harr. Dr. Harr underwent heat therapy and by spr- ing, he had it whipped. Primarily he ran in- doors, especially when the weather was in- hospitable. Dr. Harr jogged because of the convenience and companionship of the sport. " Jogging was ideal because no special facilities or equipment are needed, " he said. " I have made friends with more students on the road or track than in the classroom. " He was the first member of the University Jogging Club to reach the 2500 mile level.

Jm No breaks for Landes ' bicycling As dependable as the Bell Tower chimed, Richard Landes, chemistry instructor, seldom missed a Sunday biking with the Bike Club, a group he sponsored. After meeting under the Bell Tower at one o ' clock, the crew would depart for a weekly bike hike to Hopkins, Quitman or Conception Abbey. Landes, who has ridden with the group since 1973, said, " I just enjoyed it tremendously. I was on my own and dependent only on a very simple machine. " Landes emphasized how much more could be seen, smelled and heard on a bike than from a car. Landes has trecked across Iowa, New York, Washington, D.C., Florida, Kansas and Califor- nia. " I just liked getting around in a different area with the bike. " A high point of his tour was riding in Washington D.C. He especially enjoyed this because all the roads were closed to traffic . . . a bicycler ' s dream. Landes has sponsored two trips to Europe and planned to go again the summer of 1978. On previous trips they spent seven weeks visiting two countries, and pedaled an average of 50 miles a day. Their average went down when they were in the Alps. But biking didn ' t include traveling only dur- ing good weather. Landes explained on the 1974 trip, it rained almost every afternoon. " There were some colds, but no one got sick. That ' s not allowed, " Landes laughed. The next summer there was a drought in Europe, and the bikers had an easier time. The biggest hazard anywhere to the bikers was the motorists. " In Europe people were much more careful on the road. " According to Landes, American drivers could be dangerous. " Many people don ' t know how wide their car is. " In 1973, Landes and a student opened a bicycle repair shop in Maryville. The store Crank and Pedal, is a shop for bicycles, repairs and supplies.

" Racing was a goal to prove my mastery of techniques and meet other riders, " she said. Meyers considered exercise as relaxing and thought nothing of riding two hours a night for 50 miles. In bicycling proper equipment does not guarantee safety from accidents. A mishap in •Burlington, Iowa taught Meyers never to look back during a race. " I should have been more careful in the drizzle, " she said.

" LeMar, a psychology instructor, has been lif- ting weights since he was 1 1 . Making this a life- long interest, he worked out at least three times a week in his basement gym which consisted of a punching bag, dumbbells, and a bench-press. LeMar claimed that a proper weight-lifting program was as beneficial to the cardio- vascular system as running. " Weight-training can ' t be practiced daily. It taxes the muscles so greatly that it could cause damage. However, if a program is carried out with a variety of exer- cise and no breaks, it has the same effect as running. " Seven years ago, LeMar and a group of stu- dent lifters organized the University ' s first weight club. During this time, he acquired enough equipment to stock a health club. " 1 was constantly searching for good buys. It ' s hard on equipment when 15-20 guys use it daily. " He maintained the health spa for a short time on First Street in Maryville. Because of his interest, LeMar has been a catalyst in bringing important weight-lifting events to Maryville. Three years ago, NWMSU hosted the State Olympic Lifting Cham- pionships. The National Collegiate Mr. America Contest was also held on this campus in recent years. Although he has never participated com- petitively, LeMar was quick to point out benefits of weight-lifting, or any athletic program. " Peo- ple in good physical condition have a better mental attitude, " he concluded.

If l Launch experience is trip for Smeltzer When the Voyager II planetary explorer was launched last August, Dr. Jim Smeltzer, of the physics department, was on hand to view a great deal of the proceedings that went along with the launch. Of the nearly 100 educators asked to attend the launch, Smeltzer was one of the few positioned at the press site which was only two miles from the launch site. He was allowed to work with the press because of credentials from KXCV-FM, the University radio station, and sent live reports of happenings at the launch site back to KXCV. Smeltzer commented that being able to view the launching was exciting. " It was the first time I ' ve seen a launch. It was exciting to be there rather than to just read about it. " Along with attending the launch, Smeltzer has had some experiences with NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). He has attended three conferences at different places in the past, and, he anticipated a visit to the Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala., in March to view the landing of the Enterprise. Smeltzer enhanced his classes with materials, pamphlets and films he had gathered through his NASA involvement. Along with the personal satisfaction that he gained, Smeltzer noted that the biggest benefit was the " educational aspect.

" I ' ve learned more about my own language from talking with international students, than anything else, " said Dr. VanDyke. " English is such a tremendously rich language. I ' ve also learned that love, respect for others and hard work are as common a need of their cultures as they are in my own.

Missouri residents faced the fact that this winter was to be another record breaker. Local- ly, experts announced that December, January and February were the coldest three months in the last 30 years. The average temperature for the three months was a frigid 21.9 degrees and heating bills rose exhorbitantly. February 13 marked the worst snowfall of the season as 12 inches of the dreaded white stuff paralyzed the area. The city declared an emergency as snow plows worked 24-hour shifts to keep the streets clear. When the University cancelled classes for the first time since 1912, students took advantage of the un- expected holiday and spent the day playing in the snow or trying to push their vehicles out of snow-drifted parking lots. By the first week in March, the mounds of snow had subsided and students were looking forward to Spring break when the clouds dumped another 10 inches of snow on the area. It was an incredibly long winter, a record- breaker to be sure, and 1978 was remembered as the year of the great snows.

The coal strike deprived the Midwest ' s in- dustrial belt of 2.7 million tons of coal per week. Over a third of the nation ' s industrial manpower and almost half of its industrial capacity were affected, causing black-outs and severe cut- backs. Governor Joseph Teasdaie requested that Missouri begin a serious statewide conserva- tion program. Citizens were asked to cut back on electrical appliances during peak hours and to conserve on lighting. University President B. D. Owens began his own program. " This University must assume a responsibility for leadership in curtailing the use of electrical power, " said Dr. Owens. Staff members were asked to conserve all possible usage of electricity. Artificial lighting not absolutely necessary in offices and classrooms was turned off. Ail campus lighting not essential for security purposes was turned off. " We were careful not to jeopardize the students ' safety or security, " explained Max Harris, director of the physical plant. All students and faculty members were urg- ed to conserve energy whenever possible. Stu- dent response was favorable so this was one more valuable learning experience outside the classroom situation. •; Carol Hartley: 251 SUSAN HARTLEY: 300 Lynnette Hartman: 206 Tim Hartnett: 251 Becky Hartzler: 251 HARVEY: 166 Bridget Harvey: 155 Ron Hathorn: 125 Valerie Hathorn: 251 Ronald Hathorne: 251 Greg Hatten: 24,147,251 Rex Haultain: 108,109,251 Brian Hausheer: 174 Bridget Havey: 206 HAVOC WEEK: 4 CHARLES HAWKINS: 84,183, 300 Steve Hawks: 252 Susan Hawley: 252 Brenda Hayden: 252 HOYT HAYES: 163,262,300, 301 PETER LIND HAYES: 10,11, 56,57 PHIL HAYES: 74,75,252 Tamnny Hayward: 145,159,252 LEFT: Mounds o1 coal lay ironically Idle while Mid-westerners conserve energy d uring the coal strike.

" Star Wars " moved into the position of being the movie that grossed the most money in movie history. Crowds flocl ed to see George Lucas ' s production transport people into an in- tergalactic shoot-out. The audience escaped to a world of special effects where stars, planets and space ships zoomed across the screen. The total production was nominated for ten Academy Awards including the Best Picture. Even the musical theme of the movie became popular enough to win a Grammy Award. Another nomination for Best Picture was " Close Encounters of the Third Kind. " Steven Spielberg took the audience into the future as UFO ' s whirled out of space. Bringing movie viewers back from science fiction to reality was " Annie Hall. " The movie dealt with a fictional treatment of a year in the early 1970 ' s when Woody Allen and Diane Keaton lived together. Both actors ' perfor- mances brought the movie a nomination for the Academy ' s Best Picture. Competing with " Star Wars " for Best Picture was Neil Simon ' s " Goodbye Girl " . Besides this nomination, Richard Dreybuss ' and Marsha Mason ' s performances won them the chance at Best Actor and Best Actress honors. Both por- trayed characters who were stereotyped from the ' 40 ' s boy-meets-girl plots which developed a romantic comedy. A different kind of comedy came to the screen with " Oh God. " George Burns portrayed an irritated and wrathful God. His style brings out one of the basic points in the movie: that people place too much emphasis on status. Besides drawing box office fans, one movie caused it ' s viewers to flock to record stores, " Saturday Night Fever. " It was the first film to exploit disco on the screen.

Having recorded 102 wins, the Royals took a slight advantage into the play-offs because their total victory mark surpassed those of all other major league teams. They also looked strong at the end of the season by posting a late-season 21 out of 22 game winning streak. Although their record was impressive, the real test did not come until they started their journey toward Ring Lardner ' s " World Serious, " known to most baseball fans as the World Series. But once again the Royals played a repeat performance of their 1976 season and saw their World Series chances destroyed in the ninth inning of Play-Off Game five. With the Royals holding on to a 3-2 lead go- ing into the ninth inning. New York scored three runs against Dennis Leonard, Larry Gura and Mark Littell to make the score 5-3. After the Yankees scored their runs, the Royals had one last chance at the victory in the bottom of the ninth. Darrell Porter made a quick out on a pop-up, but Frank White came up with a single. With one man on base, the Royals had a glimpse of hope, but the game quickly came to an end when Fred Patek grounded into a dou- ble play. The score remained 5-3 and the Yankees captured the American League Cham- pionship and moved on to win the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Even though the game had come to an end, the 41,133 fans who filed out of Royals Stadium were unable to leave the memories of the 1977 season behind. The most memorable moment was the silence that descended on the stadium when the Yankees scored the winning run. Although it was the winning run for the Yankees, it was much more for the Royals. It was a second chance at the American League pennant slipping through their fingers. It was a loss that again kept Kansas City from attaining their ultimate goal of reaching the World Series.

During the short time it tool the flood waters to rise to their peal , 23 deaths were reported. The area which received the most extensive damage was the Plaza shopping district. Several Plaza merchants, including Alameda Plaza Hotel, Annie ' s Santa Fe, Baskin Bobbins, Eddy ' s Loaf Stein, Halls, Plaza III and Seville Square, were forced to close their doors to the public while workmen repaired the damage which totaled approximately $50 million. Even though the shops had to discontinue business, they were able to reopen in time for the Christ- mas season. No only private establishments received damage, but there was also $1 2 million damage reported to government owned property. Rescue crews worked around the clock in an attempt to save flood victims and their belongings. " My dad ' s lumber yard (Cash Bargain) suf- fered extensive damage from the flood, and my brother, who lives on the Plaza, was completely wiped out, " said Beth Binney, junior. Red Cross headquarters were established to provide aid to families who were left homeless and a city emergency center and a command post on the fifth floor of police headquarters were activated to deal with the crisis. Although the flood came upon the city unex- pectedly, the residents were all willing to help. To aid civil authorities, 150 private boats were provided by volunteers in the area. Volunteer groups worked with the area authorities and within a few days the city was back to normal. i Ed Wisner: 147,290 Dianne Withrow: 102,103,110, 111 Bill Wohleeber: 106 Geraldine Wolff: 290 Ada Wong: 224 Felix Wong: 290 BETTY WOOD: 311 Daria Wood: 290 Joyce Wood: 42,166,224 Nancy Wood: 152 Terry Wood: 290 ERNEST WOODRUFF: 96,127, 311 Darrell Woolley: 224 Susan Wopata: 291 Garry Workman: 291 Phil Workman: 110 GEORGE WORLEY; 122 Maria Worley: 162,189,225 Mike Worley: 225 Steve Wray: 16,17,291 WRESTLING: 122,123 Diane Wright: 291 GERALD WRIGHT: 311 Martin Wright: 186,225 Nancy Wright: 155,291 Pam Wright: 155,291 WRITING SKILLS CENTER: 89,214 Lily Wu: 188,189 Yi-Ran Wu: 193 Bruce Wuebben: 113 Elaine Wurster: 291 Sheryl Wurster: 103,172, 225 JIM WYANT: 151,311 Janet Wymore: 175 Leroy Wynn: 291 Karen Wynta: 291 Brenda Wyse: 225 YARC: 172,186,187 Connie Yates: 124,155,291 DONALD YATES: 96 John Yates: 167 Judy Yates: 152,291 Ridge Yates: 142 Vickie Yates: 159,186,291 Amy York: 291 Kurt York: 291 Larry York: 21,161,169,186, 187 Stephen Yost: 24,291 Dave Young: 142,151,164, 225 Eric Young: 291 Mary Young: 291 Nancy Young: 152,178,179, 225 Sarah Young: 162,166,225 Scott Young: 291 Keith Youngblood: 291 Anita Younger: 181,291 Lydia Youngman: 291 Cindy Younker: 152 Angela Yu: 189 Robyn Zaiser: 225 James Zaiansky: 225 Marcia Zanko: 225 Cindy Zech: 152 Jim Zech: 143 Shahriar Zekavati: 291 Darrell Zellers: 24,25,291 Glen Zenor: 122,225 Diana Zian: 291 Carleen Ziegler: 148 Jay Zimmerman: 113,291 Pam Zimmerman: 291 Patti Zinn: 153 Diana Zipf: 280,281,291 Monica Zirfas: 72,73 Charles Zodiac: 143 Rodolfo Zuniga: 108,109,147, 225 330 INDEX Wisner Zuniga ' % LEFT: Motorists become stranded as they battle flood waters.
