The year was full of sur- prises and changes, especially in academics. Revisions didn ' t hit only ex- pected areas of tuition and add drop procedures, students began to wonder how President Dean Hub- bard ' s proposed department reorganization would affect them. Community ordinances placed in- to effect also concerned students and their social lives. A crackdown on noise and strengthened aware- ness of alcohol had students wondering if Prohibition had just reached the ' Ville. A new cussing ordinance had students talking, and the only safe party was a tea party. 1 I i H •■? f tx ' .t. " wim - ■.ri S 000 OM tmiOS6 es in o ' ■ sfi.

Trunkhill D Campus Highlights Although most of the highlights were annual events, each seemed unique from the year before by intertwining a little of the flavor of 1986 and keeping students wondering what was next. Homecoming rolled around in the fall and with this annual event came several alterations. All four sororities decided not to enter floats in the parade. Funds were tight due to fines from throwing an all-sorority party that ended, for a few, at police headquarters. Fraternities also decided to break tradition and cut back on their Homecoming activities. With its arrival only six weeks into the school year, time was of the essence. Only two weeks after watching Kermit and Miss Piggy on stage in the Variety Show, another type of music was sound- ed in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. " Carousel " was performed with the combined efforts of music and theater students. All this and more kept students on their toes, ready for whatever was to come next. Inside Scoop Homecoming A look at annual Homecoming fes- tivities showed, although numerous changes, it was still one of the biggest highlights of the year. page 16 ii Carousel " Music was brought to the stage as theater and music students combined their talents in the Mary Linn Perform- ing Arts Center ' s first major produc- tion. page 22 Campus Highlights Around the world in Lamkin Gym lUp With People! As the lights dimmed in Lam- kin Gymnasium, 125 Up With People cast members animated the stage with music and dance. The cast members, in an effort to communicate their ideas and hopes, involved the audience by dancing through aisles and encouraging clapp- ing to songs. Their routines featured music and dance from Mozart and the Renaissance Period to the ' 50s prom dances, street dances and robotics. " The show was fantastic, " Leann Greene said. " 1 had never been to a concert which made me feel so alive. " " There were about 2,400 people in attendance at the Up With People show, " said Alice Hersh of First Midwest Bank, which sponsored the group. " The show was tremendous. The key stars, or ones in front, were really good. It left me with a good feel- ing. " Incorporated in Tucson in 1968, Up With People had five casts, with students in each cast traveling to more than 6,000 cities and towns in 47 coun- tries. " It was exciting, " Steve Rivera, cast member, said. " We were always on the go and met people from all over. We really learned to appreciate people. " " I had never been to a con- cert which made me feel so alive. " L Greene For every performance, the cast helped assemble lighting and stage equipment and striked the set af- ter each show. Members worked in publicity, arranging for host families and public service perfomances. By the end of the year, each cast member stayed with 80 to 90 host families in different parts of the world. " When they came to Maryville, 1 found hosts for the night of perfor- mance. Hosts were community citizens with goodwill qualities, because the Up With People stars were goodwill am- bassadors, " Hersh said. " Host families were where 1 learned the most, " cast member Tim Barnett said. " They were how I grew as far as getting along with people. " " Living with host families was the best experience, " cast member Jill Vosters said. " I lived with families who had little kids, in dorm rooms and with grandparents, which made it such a learning experience. " New Up With People cast mem- bers were chosen by inter- views conducted after every show by cast members themselves. Names were sent to Tucson for the final deci- sion. " We were a really close-knit group, " Rivera said, " almost like a family. " The professionally produced music- al show was entertaining to many. " Up With People was better than the fall concert because it caught my in- terest more, " Deb Andersen said. " It was neat to see the different styles of ethnic dances. " " We (my roommates and I) really en- joyed how they made us feel an active part of the show, " Shari Schroder said. " We liked the ' Look for the People ' routine most. The dancing was extraor- dinary. " By Maryann McWilliams Interactment with the audience happens throughout the Up With People show.

The event, held April 17, in Ricken- brode Stadium, brought joy to most participating athletes. " There was a lot of love and warmth that couldn ' t be found in any other place, " volunteer Lisa Courier said. " These people didn ' t know hate or anger. They weren ' t discouraged or disappointed when they didn ' t win because they knew, regardless, they still won. " Gerald Wright, Special Olympic coordinator for the last five years, said Special Olympics would not exist if it were not for help from campus organizations. Praising them, he said the approximately 50 people who con- tributed time made the event wor- thwhile to special education students. Basically, volunteers ran the show. They timed events, started races and watched equipment. " Most campus organizations and the Kiwanis Clubs of Maryville and Burl- ington Junction helped, which gave a blend of campus and community in- volvement, " Wright said. Besides helping with Special O- lympics, campus organizations held dances and went to the recreation program, which helped special educa- tion students train for athletic events. Working with Special Olympics and other activities, volunteers had an op- portunity to see mentally handicapped people as individuals with real emo- tions, Wright said. " Hopefully the volunteers learned an appreciation of differences in people, " Wright said. " Generally, though, peo- ple were more alike than different. " " The kids were special, " Courter said. " They needed to know someone cared. " Over 400 athletes competed in field events ranging from meter dashes to the Softball throw. Special events for those in wheelchairs and those under 8-years-old were also scheduled. People competing in the games ranged in age from 2 to 71 -years old. " They (the athletes) had a really great time, " Wright said. " It was their big day of the year. " Even though Special Olympic games were enjoyed and public- ized by area television stations, Wright said it was not the only sporting event held for the special education students. Some students went on and com- peted in state Special Olympic games " They weren ' t discouraged or disappointed when they didn ' t win because they knew, regardless, they still won. " L. Courter for medals. Wright said several bowl- ing, Softball and basketball tour- naments were sponsored for students, making Special Olympics a year round event. Just seeing the happy faces of the participants made it all worthwhile for most volunteers. " It was exciting just to see their faces when they competed, " volunteer P.J. Campbell said. " 1 wouldn ' t hestitate to be a volunteer again. " By Lisa Helzer Teresa Schuelke Special Olympics 1 1 3 I 1 2 Summer fe c Education versus vacation diiemna Summer Spring semester had come to a close and students filed for vacations; but. for some, lot spent relaxing in the ig. Instead, the time was , mer school studying for . classes, tolerating four , u threats and enduring the break- uWn of air conditioners. At first I wasn ' t sure if I should go to summer school, " Susan Miles said. " It " " ed it would be tougher because ion was only five weeks: but. t was all over, I was glad to get tiy three credits behind me. " Summer school began without many people moving on campus and the hubbub of new students. Franken and Dieterich were the only halls occupied by students which made other dorms seem forlornly quiet. Campus population consisted main ly of graduate students, teachers retur- ning to update certification, students wanting to catch up or get ahead and high school students attending a wide variety of camps. fith a maximum load of seven ' hours per five-week session, stud ' ents were kept busy and didn ' t have many opportunities to participate in outside activites. The free time students had was spent completing projects, doing homework and concen trating on their areas of study. " Since there weren ' t many people in classes. I got to know the instruc tors better, ' Tom McLaren said. ' I like a human and not ii - " Althougtj study ' — during the w tainment for weekends. " I found myself going to bars a lot. " McLaren said. " It seemed to be the hot item of summer. " Even though summer school was ad- vantageous to some, others found disadvantages in it. " I didn ' t like summer school because I felt I didn ' t get a full education, " Jim Gries said. " The classes went too fast and I didnt think I had the opportunity to have all the material covered cor- rectly. ' o many, summer ended when notices arrived from Cashiering and football players returned for prac-. tice. But for some students, summef was just beginning. " It was hard to come back to schgol in the fall because I felt like it was tirne for my vacation. ' " Julie Frump said. " Being a resident assistant. I had less than two weeks until orientation. It was really frustrating for me. " " I was ready for the fall students to come back because I missed the peo- ple, " Gries said. Despite hot. humid days, thunder- storms and condensed classes, many students who gave up vacations for summer school met their main objec- tives. Along with that, they gained a new perspective of campus life and life in Maryville. " I liked going to summer school because it was shorter. Classes were held every day and I found the material _easier to remember. " McLaren said. " It nice in Maryville during the sum- T because I got so much closer to " eogjii ere.

Trunkhlll Anticipation and precipitation filled the air as people ran a- round in robes and rain- coats. After 16 years of school, graduates left their books behind. More than 5,000 people jammed in- to Lamkin Gym to see over 600 under- graduate and nearly 100 graduate de- grees awarded during commencement ceremonies May 1 1. " The thought of graduating wasn ' t that big of a deal because I was going on with further schooling, " Shari Schroder said. " However, the gradua- tion ceremony was more than I had ex- pected. The realization of what I had accomplished came, not as 1 walked across the stage, but at the moment when our entire graduating class mov- ed our tassels from right to left. " Brigadier General Jim Joy, U.S. Marine Corps and 1957 graduate, gave the commencement address urging graduates to be leaders. He stressed leadership should have a personal meaning gained through constant and critical self-evaluation. Joy also challenged the graduates to be technically sound in their field, set positive examples, seek and take re- sponsibility, make good decisions and, above all, be true to themselves. During the spring ceremony. Dis- tinguished Alumni Awards were presented to Joy and Marilyn Meyer Dedrickson, a third grade in- structor at Eugene Field in St. Joseph, named Missouri ' s Teacher of the Year. Charles McLaughlin, chairman of the science department and chemistry in- structor at Center High School in St. Joseph and chosen Missouri ' s Teacher of the Year in 1982 was also honored. Despite the pomp and circumstance, some students felt high school and col- lege graduation ceremonies differed. " Our high school graduation was so formal and proper, " Schroder said. " Walking down the aisle in May, peo- ple were talking to me and shaking my hand. It was great how people hollered ' Way to go ' to their friends as they received their diploma. Another big difference was that in high school our curls didn ' t droop while standing alph- abetically in the rain for 15 minutes. " Dan Holt, a summer graduate, said the most exciting thing for him that night was the rainstorm which hit Maryville, downing trees and power lines. " The lights went out for a few minutes during the ceremony, " Holt said. " But nobody panicked. We all just stood there waiting for them to come back on. It was interesting. " Nearly 300 students braved the weather to receive their degrees at commencement ceremonies Aug. 9. In his commencement address, Uni- versity President Dean Hubbard chal- lenged graduates to " strive to become Renaissance people. " He warned the changing world " cou- ld be terribly threatening and offen- sive " to the uninformed. " We want graduates who have learn- ed to gather, organize, analyze and synthesize information, to think co- " The realization of wbat I had accomplished came when our graduating class moved our tassles from right to left. " S. Schroder herently and to speak and write clear- ly, " Hubbard said. He concluded when he said being a Renaissance person " will expose you to more culture, will give you greater self- confidence, richer pleasures and a keener sense of citizenship. " Graduation. Most looked forward to it for over a decade and a half. And so, in torrential downpours and ferocious summer winds, some graduates took their first steps toward the future in galoshes.

Kempker 16 Homecoming Hiim-m storybook characters animate Homecoming Enchanted weekendl nee upon a time in the land of Nor- thwest, children ' s storybook charac- ters came to life. Children ' s faces lit up and hands applauded while favorite charac- ters were lifted from pages of imagina- tion and brought to reality for one special weekend-Homecoming. Homecoming ' s introduction was cut short with rushed preparation due to the scheduling which not only fell ear- ly, but during midterms. Limited preparation put a damper on the overall Homecoming committees. " Many people who helped with Homecoming didn ' t have actual ex- perience and that set us back, " said Dave Teeter, Homecoming chairman. Even though the introduction to the storybook weekend was short, Homecoming ' s first chapter began suc- cessfully in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center where all young Bearkittens and Bearcats found storybook buddies performing in the Variety Show. Because Mary Linn accommodated a larger crowd than the Charles Johnson Theater where the show was annually held, the Variety Show was limited to two nights. A favorite act was the Delta Chi ' s lovable Muppets. Leading the Muppets to a victorious audience applause and a happy ending were none other than Kermit and Miss Piggy. An oleo act, definitely prepared more than two weeks in advance, was the piano performance of Marty Mincer. Mincer captured the hysteria of listeners and ended with a final note pounded out with his right heel. A highlight of the Variety Show ' s opening night was the crowning of Homecoming Queen. Suspense grew and anticipation filled the air as the ending of one chapter in the story drew to a close. Laurie Von Stein, sponsored by Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, was announc- ed as Homecoming Queen. It was also her 22nd birthday. " Being crowned queen on my birthday made it extra special, " Von Stein said. " 1 thought nothing good would come after 21, but it made a neat 22nd birthday present. " Walkout Day introduced the next chapter by providing time to finish last minute parade preparations. Work on floats, clowns and jalopies demanded many extra hours of effort. Those hours paid off though, when Maryville residents lined streets to see the finished products of storybook characters who came to life in the col- orful parade. Extra parade precautions were taken to prevent any reoccurrence of past problems with drunken drivers of floats or jalopies. " Being crowned queen on my birthday made it extra special. " L. Von Stein One precaution required Campus Safety and Maryville officers to patrol before parade time. This was done for " protection against something that might have happened which would have taken away from the parade, " Teeter said. But no problems arose, and Once Upon a Time in Northwest had come to life. " It was fun being in the parade, " said Alicia Craven, who was the dish that ran away with the spoon. " I ' ve never been in the parade before. Watching -continued Homecoming 1 7 Homecoming kids ' reactions made it all worth- while. " Although clowns were an important part of the Homecoming parade, the more complex and animated entries were the floats. " It (float building) was an entire year project, but 60 percent of the work was done three days before the parade, " said Ted Roberts, Delta Chi float chair- man. " Everything planned was chang- ed. " Float construction was expensive and time consuming, " it really gave organization ' s actives and pledges a chance to get to know each other, " said Charlene Johnson, presi- dent of Sigma Society. " It was a positive aspect to Homecoming. " But for the sororities, Homecoming interaction was limited. After paying fines incurred from a sorority party, sororities decided to focus on clowns rather than expensive floats. Accor- ding to Teeter, when sororities pulled out of the float competition, they saved money, but lost involvement and com- raderie. Even though float entries were reduced, storybook characters still strode the streets and others looked on from their stationary house decs. Phi Sigma Kappa felt goals had been reached when their house dec received first. " We took a lot of pride in it and it was one thing we excelled in and look- ed forward to, " Vice President Kent Pudenz said. In the independent category, Millikan Hall captured first place with " Bobby ' s Web. " " I was shocked when 1 heard of the placings because of the condition it was in Friday night, " said Gayle Pounds, Millikan Hall Council president. " Bobby ' s Web " had been shredded from a combination of Mother Nature and vandals. The storybook weekend progressed into game time where the Bearcats and -continued Musicians Shiawn Sallee and Brad Killeen sing " Bits and Pieces " which they wrote. They were one of the oleo acts performed during the Varie- ty Show which ran for two nights. -Photo by S.

" Students had friends at CMSCJ which created a natural Homecoming situation for us. " Included in this chapter was half- time entertainment provided by the marching band, baton twirler, step- pers and flag corp. Special halftime at- traction was the performance of Terre McPheeters, a 1977 graduate. Mc- Pheeters, a successful song writer in Nashville, has published 20 songs. With the ending of halftime, the Mules and Bearcats were left battling for the victory. The Bearcats captured the win with an 18-10 final score. Contributing to this victory was Dan Anderson who was awarded the Don Black Memorial Trophy, an honor given to the most valuable player of the game. " It was a great honor, " Anderson said. " I always saw other players receive it and I was kind of envious. I was proud of it. " The Homecoming game ended hap- pily ever after with the afternoon stret- ching into dusk and the final event, the Homecoming dance, sponsored by campus radio station KDLX. Although this was the end of Once Upon a Time in Northwest, Homecom- ing lived on and students waited to be captured in another theme.

Trunkhill 22 Carousel rnvmum Energy turns ' Garouser into a standing ovation Musical Generating unending energy, the 44-member cast of " Car- ousel " opened in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center seven weeks after auditions. " The energy was there that comes with opening night, " stage manager David Shamberger said, " it was a suc- cessful show. " But success wasn ' t attained easily. Hundreds of man-hours and hard work went into the Rodgers and Hammers- tein musical. " ' Carousel ' is not often done, " Dr. Charles Schultz, director, said. " It was a large musical to mount visually because it required so much talent; but we felt we had enough horses (person- nel) to handle such roles and the facilities in Mary Linn to stage the show. " Auditions for the first musical in four years and first major production by students in Mary Linn spanned three nights. Vocal auditions were held the first evening, one singer at a time, on a bare stage. Choreographers Roger Strieker and Brett Lasslter conducted dance audi- tions the following night. Dividing the auditioners into groups of 25, Strieker and Lassiter demonstrated dance steps to " One " from the musical, " Chorus Line. " Each group had 30 minutes to learn and practice before the tryout took place. " Everyone impressed me at audi- tions, " Strieker said. " To see all those people dancing the combination I made up was unbelievable. " Scripts and roles were arbitrarily assigned the final night. Schultz delegated two to six people to act out a 5 minute scene on stage. " With 60 people auditioning, there Blocking and character development are only two areas which Director Charles Schultz super- vised. Schultz and actress Gina Qae Peterson talk over some ideas. Photo by S. Trunkhill was stiff competition, " Schultz said. " But we chose an excellent cast and there was tremendous talent even in the little roles.

Shorten dan. " I didn ' t think of myself as a lead. 1 thought of myself as part of the cast. " Staging a musical provided the op- portunity to combine the music and theater departments. " It was a chance to mesh them all together, " Sheila Hull said. " We got to work with people out- s ide the theater department, which was something we didn ' t usually get to do. " " There were no fights, " said Greg Gilpin, who played lead Billy Bigelow. " The cast worked together and 1 wished we could do more. " To enact " Carousel, " many danc- ing, singing and acting rehear- sals were held. Actors learned different aspects of a musical. " Not being a singer, I learned things about singing I never knew before, " Russ Williams said. In addition, singers discovered new things about acting. " There was a lot of concentration and time spent, " Gilpin said. " We had to work hard to project our voices. " " Doing ' Carousel, ' I got to put physical stage actions to work, instead of interpreting with my voice only, " Tornquist said. Performing " Carousel " required many technical experiments.

" Because some girls had to sing, we sewed dresses with more room in the diaphragm area, " Strieker said. " Even though dresses were made looser, they still had to appear nice. We had to ad- just and alter a lot. " In addition to technical work and costuming, producing " Carousel " demanded rehearsals of the 21 -piece orchestra. With brass instruments used sparingly, woodwinds and strings car- ried musical numbers such as " If 1 Lov- ed You, " " June is Bustin ' Out all Over " and " You ' ll Never Walk Alone. " " Our only problem was balancing the orchestra with voices and trying not to overcome solos, which were all important to the musical, " band direc- tor Al Sergei said. After auditions, daily rehearsals and lots of hard work, " Carousel " was per- formed three nights for audiences of about 700 people. " We had to open the balcony, which we hadn ' t had to do for any production until then, " assistant director Tom McLaughlin said. " Opening night was great, " Gilpin said. " No one was really nervous. There were lines I didn ' t expect laughter to, but that was great, too. " The end of the musical brought a standing ovation for cast and crew. " The standing ovation was unex- pected, " Cherie Shortell said. " There was so much energy, it was hard to contain. It felt so good inside knowing we did a good job. " When the final curtain lowered, " Carousel " was over; but the energy continued. " The cast was hard working, " Schultz said. " They had energy that wouldn ' t end. " " It was wonderful, " Shortell said. " It was a relief the cast got to be good friends. There were so many good things about the experience that won ' t be forgotten.

Was it curiosity to see ihat a Bearcat looked like? i Or was green their favorite color? Reasons were as varied as the people iho answered the question, but several ;asons were mentioned frequently. A majority of students named size ad atmosphere as main reasons for loosing Northwest. " The school was small and the cam- Ijs was homey, " Leslie Jackson said. " The people here were so nice, alpful and friendly that I felt like I ' d i)me home on my first visit, " Lianne eck said. Some students transferred here ijacause of atmosphere. i " 1 was recruited by the music depart- lent, " Tracy Wilmoth said. " 1 started ; a much larger school and wasn ' t appy with it. 1 came to Northwest scause 1 liked the atmosphere better, i :lt more comfortable and at home. " In addition, students appreciated specialized instruction. " Northwest was a more personalized allege, " Janet Cooper said. " Students ere friendly and teachers took more me to give students individual help. " Another popular reason for atten- ng Northwest was Maryville ' s loca- lit " Wby Northwest? tion in relation to hometowns. " 1 was far enough away from home (Rock Port, Mo.) to be on my own, " Carol Freeman said. On the other hand, many students liked to be able to choose whether to go home. " Northwest was close enough that 1 could go home on weekends if I wanted to, " Sandra Christensen said. Money was another major factor in choosing a college. Many students also said they chose Nor- thwest for financial reasons, including financial aid and reasonable tuition. " I chose Northwest because of the low tuition and its good reputation, " Nick Kunels said. " I chose this school because of the outstanding music program offered, " Judy Kraisser said. " The teachers would actually bend over backwards to help you. " Of those who mentioned department quality, several specified " hands-on ex- perience " as being important. Tina Prewitt, a freshman journalism major, pointed out her experience would help i n finding employment. " Northwest had the good practicum classes that 1 needed for experience that will help with getting a job, " Prewitt said. Some students thought this would be a good place to make new friends. One freshman English major came here " to meet new, different peo- ple, " as did other students. Students from big cities came here to experience life in a small town. " I wanted to go to school in a small town so 1 would be able to get to know " I came to Northwest because I liked the at- mosphere better. I felt more comfortable and at home. " T. Wilmoth more people, " Christine Fakdsek said. " I ' ve lived in a large city (Kansas City) all my life, and 1 wanted to experience a small-town atmosphere. " Other reasons given for choosing this university were excellent facilities, participation in sports programs, and parents being university employees. So Bearcats became a familiar sight on campus, and green was found in nearly every wardrobe.

Defense!, " " Come on linebackers!, " " Get going, guys!, " " Got your head in the gutter referee?, " " You can do it!, " and " Hold ' em! " were a few cheers and screams heard from the crowd.

" " It was great when fans came out to support us, " football player Steve Savard said. " When there was excite ment in the crowd it motivated the whole team. " " When the fans showed their support through cheering, it made me feel like I should do my best to win, " softball player Shelly McClure said. The cheering made not only the players want to perform their best, but the cheerleaders felt the same way. " Without fans we wouldn ' t be here, " cheerleader Dave Hunt said. " We per- formed better when they (fans) were really hyped, if they weren ' t it was real- ly hard to get going. " Fans filled bleachers in all shapes, sizes and colors, wearing any- thing from turned up collars, trench coats, Greek letters, long sweaters, worn-out jeans to dress pants and skirts. Outfits ranged from blinding green to black with brillant colored stripes to pastel blocked prints. With their styles and personalities came dif- ferent ways of supporting teams. " I liked being able to look up into the stands and see supportive fans, " soft- ball player Jennifer Mertz said. " It gave the team and myself an extra incentive to win. " Not only were players excited to have the support from fans, but the coaches were also. " I was pleased with the enthusiastic way the student body, cheerleaders and band backed us up, " Head Football Coach Vern Thomsen said. " Fans were a big part of the game. " " Fans were a vital part of the game, " Coach Bruce Cowdry said. " Without them, there was nothing to play the game for. " Why did fans go to games and cheer teams on?

Trunkhill Fashions provided by Maurice ' s of Maryville. 30 Reversed Fashions Frivolous fashion returns from ' 50s I Style changesi People often say history repeats itself. But, could one say fashion trends and fads were repeated? Taking a closer look at popular clothing styles, the answer was undeniably yes. Although the style was still in- dividualistic, there were definite trends coming forth, reminiscent of the ' 50s and ' 60s. For special occasions, clothing ap- peared in rich velvets, silky angora or shimmery satin. Casual wear varied from cotton flannel and durable denim to cozy, polar fleece and traditional wools. Prints seen on these varied fabric types included cabbage roses, paisleys, tartan plaids, tweeds, wallpaper prints and checks. It was popular to wear florals and plaids together or contrasting the textures, such as pairing denim with a satin jacket. Colors for many fabric and pattern choices ran the endless spectrum. In- tense jewel tones such as ruby, sap- phire, jade, topaz and turquoise con- trasted to more delicate shades of lemon, peach, lime and peppermint. Accessories came back in full force, as singers Madonna and Cyndi Lauper made headlines on rock and fashion magazines flaunting many layers of costume jewelry, thus setting trends across the Clnited States and abroad. Imitating Madonna and Lauper, students wore many strands of beads, dangling " jewel " earrings with bangles. Gloves, hip-slinging belts, lace hair bows, jewel lapel pins and lace nylons also emphasized the importance of ac- cessories. Focusing on clothing styles, trends were again based on diversity and self- expression. Fall silhouettes ranged from oversized, larger-scale fashions to a revival of body-conscious lines. Other hints from the past were visualized in varsity or " Ivy League " in- fluence for women and men. Varsity dressing was for any coed, but with modern variations. Wool blazers with prep school " emblems " were seen paired with slim pants; or oversized let- ter sweaters were worn over body- conscious stirrup pants, a definite trend from past decades. Stirrup pants returned for fall and were worn with oversized sweaters, shirt jackets or sweater dresses. " 1 really liked wearing them (stirrup pants) to be different, " Amy Mitchell said. Mitchell was pleased fashion trends allowed newer versions of older styles on the market. " 1 always thought Mom ' s stuff was neater than what was popular anyway, " she said. One possible reason fashions were tinged with nostalgia, had to do with the designers. According to Diane Hicks, assistant professor of home economics, inspirations from other time periods may have caused designers to revive and adopt patterns of dress in which the philosophies of " I liked the way tliey up- dated older styles and brougbt them back. " J. Alexander lifestyle were similar. Many students welcomed the new, yet old, styles and the chance of raiding parents ' closets and attics, in search of authentic old clothing. " 1 lik- ed the way they updated older styles and brought them back, but 1 just wish my mom would have kept some of her old clothes, " Jane Alexander said. History might or might not reoccur through clothing trends, but as Hicks said, it was hard to tell what would be popular next. Together, though, old and new styles meshed and formed a diverse, yet unique era all its own call- ed the ' 80s. By Lisa Helzer Reversed Fashions 3 1 .. ' ■ ' Danger black cat ahead; so don ' t press your luck Beware, before walking across the path of a black cat or walking under a ladder. Beware, before stepping on a crack or opening an umbrella in a house. The fear of these situations and many more were classified as supersti- tions, or irrational beliefs in the significance of particular cir- cumstances. Even though supersti- tions were considered irrational, many logical people believed in them. Dealing with constant competition caused some athletes to accept the oeliefs of old and rely on good luck bharms and other superstitions. " For home basketball games, 1 always put my left shoe on first, " Jeff Hutcheon said. " At away games, I put •ny right shoe on first. My father did the same thing when he played. " During tournaments, more supersti- tions seemed to surface and were followed closer-just in case. " I had a million superstitions when I was in a racquetball tournament, " Zhuck Geiger said. " 1 had a lot of gloves, but I always wore one special one in a tournament. I always hit the Dall with one certain side of my rac- quet; it ' s not marked, I just knew which side it was. " " In tournaments, if I had five points and I needed 10 to win, when I served, 1 oounced the ball as many times as I leeded points, " Geiger said. ven some well-known athletes icarried through actions where Superstitions important wins were concerned. During the Blue Jays and Royals playoff games, Royals third baseman George Brett wore his lucky Ghost- busters shirt under his uniform. Royals rightfielder Pat Sheridan refused to shave until his team was eliminated. Was it fate or skill which gave the Royals their first World Series title? Another group of people affected by specific superstitions were found in fine arts. " 1 never said ' good luck ' before a per- formance, it was an old drama tradition that most everyone lived by. But on the same note, 1 never said ' break a leg ' to a dancer, " Mark Adcock said. Even though a few people adamantly lived by superstitions, others felt no one controlled their lives but them. " 1 controlled everything that happen- ed to me, " Susan Goodwin said. " If I was paranoid about something that had happened to me then something bad would happen. If I shrugged it off then everything usually turned out good. " Nevertheless, some people con- tinued to play it safe and hang that horseshoe. Many people had not only one, but several superstitions. " If I wanted my future to come true in a fortune cookie I had to save the cookie. If I made a wish, I never told what 1 wished for or it might not have come true, " Dana Smith said. Some students just couldn ' t be con- vinced of superstitions and were positive a black cat under a ladder had absolutely nothing to do with that D on their Psych quiz. Coincidence? " If things were going to happen to a person, they would just happen, " Julie MacLafferty said. " It wouldn ' t be because they broke a mirror or stepped on a crack.

Called " The Generic Show, " it was the first com- pletely student-produced television " My personal goal was to use The Generic Sbow ' to learn and produce ex- perimental projects. " C. Kllnzman show at Northwest. Featuring music videos, mock com- mercials and films, the show included a variety of programs. One production was a Halloween show which included " How Not to Carve a Pumpkin, " safety tips for Halloween trick or treating and a tour of Maryville Jaycee ' s haunted house. " For anyone interested in TV, The Generic Show ' was a good way to see how television worked, " technical director Rodney Soptic said. Beginning as an idea by Chris Klinz- man, the show began last spring. The show was easy to implement because Fred Lamer, mass com- munications department chairman, supported the idea. " When I first came here, I saw a need for a non-traditional video outlet, " Lamer said. " But the idea had to come from students, it wouldn ' t have worked coming from faculty. " Although Lamer supported Klinz- man ' s input, he and Klinzman said there were difficulties getting the show underwav. " The difficulty was in instrumentaliz- ing it and showing how it would benefit Northwest, " Klinzman said. The Production Company, a 63- member society was initiated. Meeting weekly to discuss problems and pro- gram schedules, the organization was designed to have open membership, allowing students from varied back- grounds and majors to participate. Even though students ran the show and dealt with production problems, Lamer acted as executive producer. Wanting the show to be known, Klinzman said mass appeal didn ' t interest him. " My personal goal was to use The Generic Show ' to pro- duce experimental projects. " In addition, Lamer wanted the show to continue in a nontraditional way, us- ing more collaboration from depart- ments, and wanted more people to watch the program on KNWT Channel 10. Even so, he said the station receiv- ed calls from people saying they en- joyed the show. " I was pleasantly surprised by an almost cult following of The Generic Show, ' " Lamer said. Since the show was a beneficial pro- motion, both Klinzman and Producer Linda Jones hoped it would continue. " It will continue because there are enough interested who don ' t want to see it die, " Jones said. It took a great deal of work to get the show off the ground, but the exper- ience gained made the trouble wor- thwhile for the people involved.

" ;i 36 Sports IW tfy Bearcat followers wondered what the football team could do to top last year ' s MIAA crown. The answer seemed sim- ple. Chosen third in a pre-season Sports Illustrated poll, they were off to a good start. Unfortunately, there was no repeat performance as they battled for a .500 season. National spotlight also featured the track team finishing 30th in final competition. Although there weren ' t conference crowns for all sports, individual efforts and attitudes played an important role in team pride that instilled team unity. The basketball team found a familiar face in an unfamiliar role as Victor Coleman returned as an assistant coach. Basketball was still a crowd pleaser leaving studies and Dynasty behind to support the teams. During intramurals, fans became players themselves. And although they didn ' t draw the roaring support of packed stands, they still attracted 90 percent of the student body. Injuries and inconsistencies led to rollercoaster seasons for some teams, but fans showed support for whatever was to come next. Inside Scoop Football With the pressures of their previous season upon them, the Bearcats battl- ed for a split record season.

" I wanted to win It all and if we would have had more consistent play in the conference tournament, we could have won it all. " J. Johnson Turnabout is foul play Inconsistency and a con- troversial game affected the Bearcat baseball team as they finished their season with a 19-27-1 overall record and third place in the con- ference. " It was a disappointment (finishing in third place), " Head Coach Jim Johnson said. " 1 wanted to win it all and if we would have had more consistent play in the conference tournament, we could have won it all, " he said. It could have been more than inconsistency which cost the ' Cats a conference championship. The ' Cats replayed a game with Cen- tral Missouri State under protest because of a con- troversial call. Central led 3-2 with the ' Cats at bat in the top of the seventh and one out. Jeff Sykes was on third, Michael Thomas on first and Joe Miller at bat. Miller hit a fly ball that dropped for a hit and scored Sykes. Thomas, waiting to see if the ball was caught, was overrun by Miller between first and se- cond. Both runners tried to advance to third and were called out. When Miller passed Thomas, Miller should have been called out and Thomas allowed to proceed at his own risk. The league com- missioner ruled the umpire in violation of not visually and audibly calling Miller out when the infraction oc- cured. " We had to go back at Central ' s convenience and not ours. That was what hurt, " Johnson said. Despite problems, several individuals had outstanding accomplishments during the season. Miller, Sykes, Brian Jennings, Jerry Mikusa, and Robert Robb batted over .300 averages. Freshman pitcher, Rob Olsen totalled a 6-0 record in 1 1 outings to lead the pit- chers in victories. Olsen allowed only 37 hits in 45 in- nings pitched. He also struck out 28 and had a 3.00 earned run average, the best among the pitching staff. " 1 didn ' t expect it (winning six games), " Olsen said. " I thought 1 could help out the team, but 1 didn ' t think I would have to take the role I ended up taking.

For their effort in the tour- nament and the season, the ' Kittens ' squad received numerous awards. Shelley Lewis, Janet Schieber, Stephanie Storey, Karen Hopewell and Jennifer Mertz were selected All-MIAA First Team. Annie Melius was voted honorable mention while Hopewell was voted most valuable player (MVP). To top the season. Head Coach Gayla Eckhoff was named Coach of the Year.

Everybody was disappointed because we didn ' t really show how good we really were. " Despite the hard work, in- juries plagued the ' Kittens. Starting catcher Kathy Kelsey injured her knee in a play at the plate during the 12th game, leaving her disabled for the season. " Kelsey ' s injury had a big affect on the team, " Eckhoff said. " Kelsey was an ex- cellent catcher and worked well with the pitchers. " Even though the injury shuffled the lineup defen- sively, the ' Kittens played a good offensive game. Mertz led the charge for the team with a .301 batting average. She totaled 46 hits in 153 at bats, scored 17 runs and played in all 48 games. Teammate Schieber bat- ted a .295 average and both Storey and Hopewell sported .248 averages. In her final collegiate play- ing season, Lewis allowed 130 hits, 47 runs, 11 walks and 75 strikeouts in 178.1 innings pitched. " It was nice to be selected for the first team at the end of the season, but I ' d rather have seen us play better as a team, " Lewis said. " We had some bad luck and didn ' t win some games we felt we should have won, " Eckhoff said. " When I think about it, we were really go- ing at it without our best team on the field for three- fourths of the season. But to end up 25-22-1 and still be in contention at the con- ference tournament title was an excellent effort on their part. " By Jim Burroughs Softball team.

Rosewell Making it come together Togetherness seemed an appropriate way to describe the men ' s and women ' s ten- nis teams. Besides hiring Head Coach Mark Rosewell, the program tried some- thing new, combining both teams under one coach. " We did something that had never been done here before, " Rosewell said. " We put both teams together. We traveled together and prac- ticed together, just the way it should be. " The change worked out ivell Rosewell said. The re- cords indicated that too. The men finished their season with a 15-7 record in duals and fourth in con- ference, while the women " inished 8-6 in duals and tied " or third in conference. The combination of the :wo squads was not a new concept to which Rosewell lad to adjust. They did the same thing at Central Mis- souri State, where Rosewell previously coached for three ears. " It had always been an in- dividual effort where the guys had strong teams in the past and the women had been pretty weak for the most part, " Rosewell said. " They ' ve (the women) had four different coaches in four years, so that ' s under- standable. We did every- thing together. It was just an experiment, but it worked quite well. " Another aspect that seem- ed to work, especially on the men ' s team were the inter- national players. George Ad- eyemi and Godwin Johnson, from Nigeria, helped the men ' s team to continue its domination of a winning tradition. Adeyemi, the men ' s No. 1 singles player, finished the season with a 16-10 record and runner-up in confer- ence. Johnson, the No. 4 singles player, finished 16-7 and second place in con- ference. " The men always had in- ternational players on their team for as long as I could remember, " Rosewell said. " In fact, that ' s one reason they ' ve had a lot of success. " Although their record did not show it, the women had just as successful a season as the men. Their third place conference finish was the highest they have had in Following through with his forehand, Jim Eaton returns a baii in a match at Qrube Courts.

Playing as the No. 6 singles, Leintz finished with a 11-0 record in duals and was conference champion. Leintz, along with Patty Dingfield, won conference championship as No. 3 doubles and finished the season at 6-1 in doubles play. Leintz was not the only player to shine on the team. Paula Magana as No. 3 singles finished 8-6; Amy Andersen as No. 4 singles finished with 11-5; Karen Lyman finished 4-2 at No. 6 singles and Dingfield at No. 5 singles with 10-5. It was not hard to get the athletes motivated to win or even play, according to Rosewell. " 1 think being involved in a sport such as tennis, a minor sport where there wasn ' t a whole lot of money, you had to have fun, " Rosewell said. " The players weren ' t out there on scholar- ship, they were out there because they liked to play tennis. " By Jim Burroughs Good concentration is essential in tennis.

We were close to having the best overall record at Northwest. " R. Alsup Short end of the deal A season marked by suc- cess, yet deep disappoint- ment described the men ' s and women ' s cross country teams ' seasons. " Anytime you didn ' t get as far as you would hiave lik- ed, you had to be disap- pointed, " Head Coach Richard Alsup said. " We were close to having the best overall record at North- west. " Following a season where the men ' s team finished 16th at the NCAA Division II championships, they were looking to improve. How- ever, it didn ' t happen as they failed to qualify for nation- als. Despite the heartbreak, both teams enjoyed seasons which could be termed suc- cessful. Top performer for the men ' s team was Brad Ort- meier, who finished his col- legiate career with an 11th place finish at regionals. " 1 can ' t say enough about Ortmeier, " Alsup said. " He was a super runner for us. " The women had a success- ful year despite lingering in- jury problems. " They really had a pro- blem with injuries, but when the women were healthy, they were right up there, " Alsup said. " The ladies just kept getting better and bet- ter. " " When Allison Benorden was healthy, she was a good little runner for us, " Alsup said. " As far as a dominant figure or leader on the team, 1 would have to say it was either Lisa Basich or Julie Carl. " Despite continued im- provements throughout the season, the women had a disappointing regional. Their top finisher was Carl, who finished 14th over the five-mile course. One high point for the men and women was the Emporia State Invitational where both teams finished second. While this was the first season both teams were un- der one coach, the season went well according to Alsup. " There were not as many problems as 1 anticipated, " Alsup said. " The kids really got together and supported each other. The men sup- ported the women and the women supported the men. " With all the conflicts and adversity that accompanied the season, it was easy for Alsup to look at next year and hope for better luck. " The way the season end- ed, there will be a strong motivator for our kids to im- prove as far as next year is concerned, " Alsup said. " It should be a nice incentive to really set goals, strive for them and not be cut short. " By Scott Coffman Men ' s Cross Country. Mark Mosbacher, Mike Hayes, Rusty Adams, Lloyd Hunt.

" ■ ' A 50 Football il r " It was mostly an individual effort. We were supposed to be a team. We could have done a lot better if we would have played as a team. " T. Holechek Remembering the past What was supposed to have been a banner season, turned out to be just the op- posite. There was no con- ference championship, no post-season playoff game, no rankings. Ail that was left were memories of what might have been. This characterized the Bearcat football team dur- ing the season. They finish- ed 4-6-1, their worst record under Head Coach Vern Thomsen. " Two goals at the beginn- ing of the season were to win conference and have a chance at national playoffs, " Thomsen said. " But our No. 1 goal was to win the league and we didn ' t quite make that. " One of the reasons why the ' Cats might not have achieved any of their goals was their scheduling. Accor- ding to Thomsen, the ' Cats ' schedule was probably one of the hardest in Division 11. " Our schedule was very competitive, " Thomsen said. " Out of five ranked teams we played, we only beat one of them. 1 still stand by the old adage that we were a better all-around football team than we were a season ago. " The type of season it was going to be was shown in the first games of the season. The ' Cats allowed both of their first two opponents, Washburn University and Central State of Oklahoma, to score the first points of the game. As a result, the ' Cats got behind early and were unable to make up the difference when it counted. However, changes began to take place after that se- cond game. In their third game of the season against Missouri Western, the ' Cats grabbed a 24-0 halftime lead and held on to beat the Griffs 24-18. After spotting the University of Central Arkansas (the NAlA ' s Divi- sion 1 top-rated team) a 10-point lead, in their fourth game, the ' Cats came roar- ing back with 24 second-half points to beat the Bears 31-17. Circumstances seemed only to improve for the ' Cats. In game five, the ' Cats opened league play with a 31-14 victory over Lincoln University. The week follow- ing, the ' Cats defeated state- rival Central Missouri State 18-10. However, that was just about all the victory celebrating the ' Cats did for the rest of the season. The week after Central, the ' Cats tied Abilene Christian 24-24 and lost their last four games of the season. Yet winning only four games, the ' Cats had some outstanding individual ef- forts. Wide receiver Dan Anderson set or tied five records; one of them na- tionally. Anderson set a NCAA Division 11 record for con- secutive games with a recep- tion of 37 against Missouri- Rolla. He went on to make it 38 in the ' Cats final game of the season against the University of Northern Iowa. " 1 didn ' t know about it (the record) until two games right before, " Anderson said. " It was surprising and 1 am glad 1 set it. " Besides the national record, Anderson set the school record for most receptions in a season, 72; most receptions per game and season, 6.5; most punts a season, 68; most punts in career, 217 (35.9) average; and he tied the record for most receptions in a career, 186 (2,494 yards). Right behind Anderson was Steve Hansley, who totaled 848 yards on 69 receptions and seven touchdowns. Hansley also went on to set records in his final Bearcat season; tied for most receptions career, 186; most receptions per game, career 5.6; most receiving yards gained, career, 2,898; and most receiving yards gained per game, career, 87.8. Also grabbing glories on the offensive side of the line, quarterback Mark Thomsen, played his last season in a Bearcat uniform. Although injured in the last part of the season, Thomsen still managed to set records: most pass com- pletions per game, career 9.9; most yards gained per -continued Football 51 Remembering the past game passing, season, 182.9 and most yards gain- ed per game passing, career, 141.9(2,838). Besides the talent-laden passing attaci of tiie " Cats, running backs Mike Thomas and Robert Wilson were the offensive punch on the ground. Thomas gained 629 yards on 142 carries with five touchdowns and Wilson totaled 703 yards on 131 carries and five touchdowns. Wilson felt that if he didn ' t get injured in the game with Northeast Missouri State, the outcome of some of the ' Cat games would be dif- ferent. " If I didn ' t get hurt, we would have had a better chance of winning, " Wilson said. " I thought in all the games we played in, we should have won, except UNI. We just didn ' t get our job done. We had the right people. ..Maybe we thought we had it easy because we knew half of the squad was coming back. " " The major setback was losing to Southeast Missouri State, " offensive lineman Tony Holechek said. " From that game on, we didn ' t do anything right. Also losing FOOTBALL Overall Record 4-6-1 Washburn 24-38 Central State (OK) 27-33 Missouri Western 24-18 Central Arkansas 31-17 Lincoln 31-14 Central 18-10 Abilene Christian 24-24 Southeast 21-28 Northeast 24-35 Missouri -Rolla 6-44 University of Northern Iowa 0-49 to Northeast Missouri State hurt us because we should have beat them. " Holechek felt the team could have done better if it was more of a team effort. He felt there were too many me ' s on the team. " It was mostly an in- dividual effort, " Holechek said. " We were suppose to be a team. We could have done a lot better if we would have played as a team. " On defense, Steve Savard and Tony Floyd anchored the ' Cats. Between the two, they combined for 226 tackles, with Savard getting 146 to lead the team and Floyd, 76. " Our season as a whole was disappointing, " Savard said. " We had set some pret- ty high goals and expecta- tions before the season, but we fell short of those. " " It (the season) was disap- pointing after our tie with Abilene Christian, " Chad Reece, lineman said. " It was all down hill after that. I thought we played a good game against Central Arkan- sas. That was probably our biggest highlight. Reece also thought media attention before the regular season also hurt the team. The Bearcats finished as one of the best teams in NCAA Division II the season before and they were expected to do as well if not better with a majority of their team back for the 1985 season. " Some of the press in pre- season didn ' t help us, " Reece said. " Everybody wanted to beat us and I real- ly think that hurt us. " While most of the players contemplate on next season, there are a few (the seniors) that are thinking ahead to the future, maybe at getting a chance to play in the pro- fessional ranks. However, it would be a long shot, accor- ding to Thomsen. " It was very difficult to tell, " Thomsen said. " To be able to play in the NFL, you have to be a great athlete, be mentally tough and get every break to be able to compete. " They were tremendous athletes. I think two or three players have a chance if nothing else to sign a free- agent contract. 1 would like to see them get chances in the NFL and I think some will.

Although the Bearkit- tens were picked to finish third in the conference they finished a disappointing fifth. The potential and talent of the ' Kittens was shown in their performance and hus- tle, not a 13-14 record. Starting the year strong, the ' Kittens were victors at their own Ryland Milner Tournament.

Several players missed key games because of sickness and injuries. But, the team fought back. That fighting attitude came from a team whose bond held together not only on court, but off as well. The leadership and positive at- titudes of seniors Holly Ben- ton, Cheryl Johnson and Kim Scamman held them in high esteem by teammates. " They led our team on and off the court, " Kelly Leintz said. Scamman held the school record for assists, averaged 17 points a game and was named first team AAIAA. Benton was the team ' s third top scorer. But it was her leadership and en- couragement that scored high with her teammates. " Holly knew what 1 was go- ing through as a freshman and she helped me adjust to the pressure, " Janet Clark said.

Yilek Familiar trip to the top Despite being a young team, the ' Cats captured their third consecutive con- ference title and also qualified six wrestlers to na- tionals. Both Wayne Love and Bill O ' Conner were honored as All-Americans. The grapplers competed in a tough dual schedule. Many of the wrestlers felt their records, both in- dividual and team, were not true indications of how good the program was. " Our record was not an in- dication of how the season went because we wrestled a lot of Division I schools, " Matt Darrah said. Other wrestlers agreed, and felt tough competition made them better. " We wrestled some tough schools and it made us bet- ter wrestlers, " Love said. Coaches felt winning the conference tournament was the season ' s highlight. " We won the conference tournament which was a big plus, " Bob Yilek said. " The slow, but the second half really clicked. " The team had another reason for savoring their conference title. " Winning conference was great because it was the last year the MIAA wrestling conference would be in ex- istence, " Darrah said. This was due to Missouri-Rolla ' s plan to withdraw from the conference. Not only did the ' Cats cap- ture the MIAA crown, but they did it in a big way. By moving up some weights they captured six championships, including Terry Schmuecker at 118 lbs., Mike Hemann at 126, O ' Conner at 134, Craig Sch- wienebart at 150, Bill Eaton at 177 and Love at 190. The team also grabbed two runners-up with Kevin Barber at 167 and Joe Dismuke, heavyweight. Tim Johnson at 158 lbs. took third.

Ail-American status was something not unfamiliar to Love, as he made this his fourth title. But despite outstanding performances at nationals, the coaches were somewhat disappointed. " Overall, 1 was disap- pointed over our perfor- mance, " Coach Bob Reece said. " We should have done even better.

They got us altogether and strengthened brotherhood. Sports build character. " T. Purdy Going for the green The intramurals program drew 5,000 entries out of a possible 5,200 students. (A student was counted once for each event they par- ticipated in). Although the reasons for participating varied among students, the most popular reason was " going for the green. " Each individual or team champion was awarded the prestigious green in- tramurals champion T-shirt, which may have sounded trivial to some, but parallel- ed a gold medal to many. " It gave the wearer a sense of pride. It was something you could keep, as opposed to a trophy for a team, " Ann Kenney said. Intramural-Recreation Coordinator Bob Lade said the T-shirts were good publicity and " the people liked it. " Other awards given were a traveling Supremacy Trophy displayed in Lamkin Gym and also a basketball trophy to winning teams in each division. Lade said the reason for the basketball trophy was because it drew the most participation. Why else did students par- ticipate? " If we won, we lik- ed it, but the real reason we were out there was to have fun with our brothers, " former intramurals chair- man for Tau Kappa Epsilon Brent Phillips said. Another reason for par- ticipating was the challenge. " Intramurals made the year more interesting and was an exciting challenge when we introduced a new team (Northwest All-Stars), and of course, it made it even better when we ended as one of the winning teams, " Anna Book said. Although intramurals were designed for fun some still looked at them very competitively. " It (intramurals) was great. It gave us a chance to compare ourselves to other fraternities in the area of sports, " Sig Ep Eric Johan- nesman said. Building team character was another important fac- tor. " Intramurals played a big role. They got us altogether and strengthened brother- hood. Sports build char- acter, " Phi Sig Todd Purdy said. Participating in in- tramurals gave students not on a varsity team, a chance to compete at college level. " A lot (of students) either didn ' t have enough time or skill to continue in varsity athletics, so this was an outlet, " Lade said. Both Lade and graduate assistant Steve Johnson agreed a social factor also played a part in motivating participation. As far as the program -continued Intramurals 63 Going for the green itself was concerned, Lade said it was " continually growing. " According to Lade, it wasn ' t participation that limited the program, but facilities. " The lack of time, space and facilities limited us, " Lade said. There were 25 sports, in- cluding football, volleyball, Softball and basketball. New programs Lade would like to see instituted included frisbee golf, more co-rec sports and more pool ac- tivities. One sport introduced was pickle ball. What was pickle ball? " It was something you would have had to ex- perience to understand. It was like tennis played on a badmitten court, but you us- ed a paddle and a whiffle ball " said Johnson. Pickle ball was considered a minor sport, as were bowl- ing, weightlifting and free throw basketball. Over the years, certain traditions developed concer- ning intramurals. One was the names of certain teams: the Nationals, Americans, Gumbies, Nads, Chodes, Zombies, Force, Ekabs, Folics, Beware, Buffalo Hunters, Head Hunters, Lagnaf and Little Pink House Girls. These names were all part of the pride that came with tradition. " Our nicknames were a Delta Chi tradition; we ' ve had the same names for as long as I ' ve known, " Jay De Leonard said. Any current students, faculty and staff were eligi- ble to participate in the in- tramurals program provided they met requirements as set by the program. There were no fees to be paid as in larger universities. A sign hung in the in- tramural office reading " lntramurals--not just a game, but a way of life.

Cape 64 Intramurals WWuti Right before our very eyes What started as a day of anticipation and celebration ended in tragedy, as tine seven members of tlie Space Shuttle Challenger crew took their last flight. Surprise, disbelief and tearful realization gripped the hearts of the nation when people heard about the shuttle explosion. Christa McAuliffe . . . first civilian selected by NASA At 10:39 a.m., just 74 seconds after liftoff on Jan. 28, Challenger burst into flames with six NASA astronauts and schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe on board. After the shock of what hap- pened began to wear off, the questions started. " When I thought of all the technology and hours and all the professionals working on the shuttle, it scared me that something could have still gone wrong like that, especially in such a short amount of time, " Bob Lewis said. Several theories have arisen since MASA first began its search for the answer to the explosion. The leading theory was that an O-ring seal on the right rocket booster failed. Concerns had been expressed about effects of cold weather on operations. The temperature was 38 degrees at launch time. The coldest previous temperature for launch was 51 degrees. Engineers at Morton Thiokol Inc., the company which man- ufactured the booster rockets, were highly opposed to the launch because of cold weather. But according to NASA, those concerns were never conveyed to NASA ' s top officials and four Thiokol officials made the recom- mendation to launch. Other evidence indicating a problem included findings that the surface temperature of part of the right solid rocket booster (SRB) was about 9 degrees with the left SRB 25 degrees. " This tragic accident is going to set the program back, quite a ways probably, " Dr. Jim Smeltzer said. " It depends on how quickly they find what happened and cor- rect it. It won ' t bring the program to a halt, but it could certainly delay further missions scheduled for the year. " Because of the accident, safety procedures at NASA were ques- tioned, but Smeltzer felt NASA wouldn ' t have launched if they were aware something was wrong. " You ' re not going to launch something that you know is going to kill seven people plus blow up billions of dollars worth of equip- ment, " he said. Regardless of the unsuccessful mission and follow-up investiga- tions, people still supported the program. " 1 would go up tomorrow if they asked me, " Robin Wilke said. " Just because one failed doesn ' t mean the rest are going to. 1 still have a lot of confidence in the program. " " People in the United States were all close to the space pro- gram and wanted it to work, " Wilke said. " When people went up, we felt they were a part of us. Because of that, a part of us died with them. " People were beginning to view space shuttle missions as routine, but the explosion brought them into a tragic limelight.

Mexico City and Armero, Columbia, became victims of the worst natural disasters in 1985. Mexico was first hit. In September, the city, one of the most populated in Mexico, was hit by " one of the worst disasters in our history, " a Mexican official explained in Time. The earthquake measured 7.8 on the Richter scale. About 250 buildings in downtown Mexico City collapsed. Fifty were later judged as dangerously close to falling and an additional 1,000 were declared unsafe. The official death toll was 2,000 with almost 5,000 in- jured and an additional 1,000 missing. " One of my cousins owns an old building in downtown Mexico City and it was damaged, " Miguel Mellado said. " There will be a large cost to repair it as well as the other buildings. Some buildings will have to be demolished com- pletely. " A month later, a small town in Columbia was hit by another terrible disaster. Once again thousands were killed and many injured when Mt. Nevado del Ruiz erupted and caused one of the worst volcano disasters in history. The most damage was not caused by the eruption itself, but by melting snow and ice which caused mud slides. Some mud slides took homes, trees and people who were in the path. Many were lucky enough to grab onto tree limbs or strong structures above water level. Earthquakes rumbled through Mexico City In September. Few escaped the effects of the two quakes as the death toll reached the thousands. ■Photo by AP Wide World The next day rescue teams went out to search for those who survived the disaster. Many people were found buried alive in mud. Young children were found still in the grip of parents. After weeks of rescue work, the death toll reached above 20,000. By Andy Stahmer le.

Worried relatives held candlelight vigils amidst yellow ribbons and prayed for the safety of 153 hostages aboard TWA Flight 847. The plane, nearly 20 minutes after take-off from Athens to Rome on June 14, was hijacked by two ter- rorists to Beirut. From Beirut, where the plane was almost denied lan- ding to refuel, Capt. John Testrake flew to Algiers. After five hours, he was again ordered to Beirut. When no Amal officials appeared to negotiate the release of 50 fellow Shiite Muslims in Israel, the ter- rorists murdered U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem. Once more, the plane was taken to Algiers and then returned to Beirut. Each time the plane landed, women passengers were released. Following the third trip to Beirut, the hijackers removed all but three of the 39 hostages left and locked them in three houses in Southern Beirut. Amal Leader Nabih Berri wanted the United States to arrange a " swap " with Israelis. Later, Israel agreed to release 735 prisoners when the hostages were freed. The crisis was over. Although held an extra night in Beirut because Berri made sure the Shiites would be released, the 39 hostages were bussed to Damascus and flown to West Germany, ending the 17-day ordeal. " At first everyone was worried about the safety of the hostages, " Joe Vohs said. " After they were releas- ed, everyone was angry because the U.S. govern- ment didn ' t take more affir- mative action. " " Because of the govern- ment ' s hesitant action, " Paul Graves said, " terrorists probably felt they could walk all over any govern- ment, not just ours. " The U.S. government was not the only government bombarded by terrorists. Almost four months later on Oct. 8, the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro was held hostage for 51 hours in the Mediterranean by Palesti- nian terrorists. The four terrorists demanded that Israel release 50 Palestinian prisoners. During the seige, American passenger Leon Klinghoffer was killed and his body thrown overboard. The next morning, Abul Abbas, Palestinian leader, got in touch with the hi- jackers. Following orders, the men set the Achille Lauro free. The hijackers were ar- rested in Italy after their plane was forced to land in Sicily by U.S. warplanes. " At first it seemed all ter- rorists were anti-American, " Graves said. " After the Achille Lauro incident, it was evident that no one was safe. Terrorism was on a rampage. " Then on Nov. 24, another incident escalated the fear of terrorism. About 15 minutes after take-off from Athens for Cairo, Egyptair Flight 648 was hijacked. Gunshots, ex- plosions and fire during the assault killed 50 people. " People kept saying we needed to use force on ter- rorists, " Vohs said. " After Egyptair, some people began to realize using force wasn ' t always best. " No matter how terrorism was dealt with, numerous at- tacks and threats on airports and planes forced officials to tighten security around busy airports. " Everyone was wondering if it was safe to fly within the United States, " Martha Gal- braith said. " Security in our airports was better than most. Other countries started adopting systems like ours, but there had to be more done before terrorism was overcome. " " Governments began to realize the position everyone was in, " Graves said. " It was too bad people had to be killed before governments cracked down. Human life was far too precious to gam- ble with when dealing with terrorism.

Both leaders agreed to another Summit and AP Wide World Summit introduces super leaders Reagan, Gorbachev discuss Star Wars When the leaders of two powerful na- tions met, the world watched. Such was the case when President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev met in Geneva. This summit was the first in more than six years, a historic meeting of two leaders who literally held the course of world events in their hands. The main source of disagreement between the two leaders was Reagan ' s Strategic Defense Initiative or " Star Wars " policy. Reagan refused to change his plans, however, and Gor- bachev refused to change many of his government ' s policies, most notably Soviet activities in Afghanistan. The two leaders had differences on nuclear issues which were never resolved dur- ing their talks. The only " concrete gains " coming out of the talks were reviving cultural exchanges between the two countries, opening new consulates and improving airline safety, Newsweek reported. " It was always a hopeful sign when the leaders of the superpowers met, " history professor Dr. Richard Frucht said. " One must be realistic, though. Major gains were not nec- essarily to be expected because many issues were too complex. " Frucht said summits often resulted in restatements of existing policies which both sides felt the other should be reminded of. Newsweek reported the most unusual summit aspect was only the two leaders and their interpreters knew what really took place during the talks. Both Reagan and Gorbachev later gave their own versions of the proceedings. " I thought the summit did some good, " Dan Cochran said. " They were trying to get together. Some future conferences will come from it and I thought that was a good sign. " " It was too bad they couldn ' t agree on more things, " Sue Bortz said. " They were the two most powerful people in the world. If they couldn ' t agree on some of the important issues then we might all be in trouble.

Botha. Scenes of looting, burning cars and riots brought home the extent of unrest. As the world watched, violence spread from South Africa ' s black t townships to Cape Town and Johan- ijnesburg. When opposition increased, Botha reacted by tightening curfews and outlawing large crowds at black funerals. Government troops and police tried to interfere with protests, turning gatherings into war zones. " It was hard to dislodge a society like that, " Brian Rupe said. " They Riots were an almost daily occurence in South Africa as blacks protested Apartheid.

" President Ronald Reagan reacted to congressional pressures about South Africa ' s policies by banning (J.S. loans to the government. " Changes were obviously going to have to be made, " said Dr. Richard Frucht, history professor. " How fast they can make them and whether or not they can make a difference, re- mains to be seen. " Frucht said the situation in South Africa was a more violent version of the (J.S. ' s ' 60s civil rights movement. The difference, he said, was South Africa ' s segregation was a government policy. " You had protestors who saw violence as the only alternative and non-violent protestors like Bishop Des- mond Tutu (moderate black leader), " Frucht said.O By Kelly Kirkpatrlck 4 Vote of confidence to Aquino " I have said I can be magnanimous in victory, " President Aquino said at a news conference. " I would like to show by example that the sooner we can forget our hurt, then the easier it will be for our country to start rebuilding. " A tense political situation in the Phillipines ended in a nearly bloodless revolution, when President Ferdinand Marcos ' strong-arm government crumbled under pressure. Marcos ' troubles began when he decided to hold an election to prove he had political support. Marcos ran against Corazon Aquino, widow of slain opposition leader Benigno Aquino. She had plans for a government reform that was popular with the people. As foreign observers and about 1,000 journalists look- ed on, the Marcos regime conducted a travesty of democratic elections. Marcos ' supporters used conterfeit and duplicate ballots, free rice, gifts and force to make it appear Marcos had support that didn ' t exist. Richard Fulton, government professor, said an American delegation of Congressmen was sent to observe because of United States ' military interests in the Phillipines. The delegation had no official role, but it did alert the Reagan Administration to the widespread voting fraud. The election ended with both candidates claiming vic- tory. The United States had maintained friendly relations with the government since Marcos came to power two decades before. But his actions during the election finally resulted in President Reagan ' s suggestion that he step down to avoid a bloody revolution. Marcos problems got worse when former Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile and Lt. Gen. Fidel Ramos, both long-time members of his government, joined the rebels and called for his resignation. Marcos countered by declaring a state of emergency and surrounding himself with government troops. Marcos insisted he would remain president in a broad- cast from the government controlled radio station. But even in his defiance it was clear he couldn ' t remain in power much longer, because in the middle of the broad- cast rebels stormed the station and cut the broadcast off. Privately, Marcos was making numerous pleas to Aquino ' s provisional government to allow him to remain as an " honorary president. " But finally pressure from his people and the world became too much and he took the United States up on an offer to fly him and his wife to Guam, then to Hawaii, where Marcos owned two homes.

" Most of the Phillipine people are pro- American, so she (Aquino) will be too, " Fulton said. " They ' ll support the military bases, but will probably be more concerned with economic aid than military aid. " Hui-Lim Lim, a Filipino student, said he felt Aquino would make a good leader because the people were behind her. " 1 was glad it didn ' t take a long time for the change, " he said.

" 0 By Kelly Kirkpatrlck International 73 Anniversaries Discoveries Ring around the U.S. During one week in Decennber, federal prosecutors filed charges against four suspects in espionage cases involving the Soviet Union, China and Israel. Each case entailed potential losses of defense secrets. Retired Navy officer Arthur James Walker was sentenced to life in prison, accused of selling secrets to Soviets. He confessed to selling government documents to his brother, John Walker. In addition, Jonathan Pollard, a Navy counter-terrorism expert, was ac- cused of spying for Israel. Ronald Pelton, a former communications specialist for the National Security Agency, was arrested for allegedly sell- ing electronic surveillance secrets to the KGB over a 5-year period. Veteran CIA translator Larry Wu-tai Chin was arrested for spying for China. In response to this " year of spies, " at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger ordered tightened security measures including use of lie- detector tests for over 50,000 Defense Department employees. Halley-s Comet returns after 74 years of traveling through the solar system Approximate tall length: 50 million miles Estimated coma diameter: 62,000 miles Underwater discovery April 1912, a luxury liner set sail on its much publicized maiden voyage. When the craft was on its way sailing the seas near the east coast of North America, it ignored warnings of icebergs and tragedy struck. An iceberg gashed the starboard bow of the ship and it sank. Only enough lifeboats to save 713 people were available. The ship took the lives of 1,522 passengers, crew- members and Capt. John Astor. On this night was the sinking of the " un- sinkable " Titanic. Seventy-three years later, a U.S. oceanographic research vessel, the Knorr, on a joint mission of French and American scientists scanned the ocean 400 miles south of Newfoundland. Robert Ballard, head of the Deep Submergence Laboratory at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, sighted a boiler, luggage, coal and a case of wine. As he continued to ex- amine the sea floor, a ship, mostly in- tact and well preserved, appeared. Ballard had found the Titanic. " Seeing the Titanic would give me a haunting feeling, " Brent Gibbons said, " knowing the suffering and fear those people must have gone through that night and knowing what survivors have gone through since. " The ship was too deep to be raised by usual salvage operations. Salvage rights to the Titanic were unclear and the exact location was not disclosed, therefore it was difficult for salvaging to begin. Many felt raising the Titanic would destroy it. Others felt a great deal could be gained from the wreckage. " The Titanic should be raised if it is at all possible, " Wayne Smith said. " I ' m sure there would be many items and artifacts on the ship that have great historical value. " Whether the Titanic will be raised or not would remain a question until sum- mer, when the weather warmed and ex- peditions could be planned.

" The decision to bomb Nagasaki, Gayler said, was reached after the Japanese did not surrender within 24 hours of the bombing of Hiroshima. Another reminder of World War II that sparked conversation was Reagan ' s visit to Bitburg, a German military cemetery where many of Adolf Hitler ' s in- famous SS troops were buried. " It was okay that Reagan went to Bitburg, " John Burnett said, " but I ' m glad he also visited a concentra- tion camp. After having visited Dachau myself three years ago, 1 would recom- mend visiting it to anyone who is able to. You can see pictures and read about it, but until you ' ve toured the camp and seen the gas chambers and ovens, you really can ' t experience it. " Even after 40 years, events related to World War II were still topics of conver- sation. Vietnam It was the 10th anniver- sary of the ending of a war some believed should never have been fought. A black granite memorial was erected in dedication of Americans who either died or were dec lared missing in action from the Vietnam War. And the war still lived with many Americans even after 10 years. According to a Veterans ' Administration study, 800,000 men were still fighting the war as victims of the post dramatic stress disorder. The nation was also scar- red. " These veterans fought a war that perhaps should never have been fought, " Kenna Johnson said. " Nothing was gained-it was a lost cause. " " The United States was less sure of itself than it was before the war, " Brent Camery said. " We ' re more conscience now. " The Vietnam War left an impact on American opi- nion. Major Tom Muskus of the U.S. Army and also a Vietnam veteran, said " politically and generally people were more aware. Serious questions were be- ing asked. The simple reason that we were fighting Communism wouldn ' t be enough.

Discov. 75 Health National health concern of the ' 80s AIDS: controversial, mysterious, deadly When 13-year- old Ryan Whi- te contracted the disease, he was barred from school. And when Mathew Kozup, born 10 weeks premature in January 1983, received 40 blood transfu- sions, he began a battle for life. These boys contracted AlDS--acquired immune deficiency syndrome. A fatal illness, AIDS was characterized by a defect in natural immunity, causing victims to become vul- nerable to serious diseases. Death of actor Rock Hud- son on Oct. 2, made people aware of AIDS. Soon after, public demonstrations dis- played growing awareness and fear of the illness. Blood banks suffered from the fear that developed in people after the AIDS out- break. Although local blood banks had not suffered as much according to Dee Norin, nurse at St. Joseph Community Blood Center, blood banks located in the metropolis areas suffered tremendously. Belief that AIDS could be contracted through don- ating blood was a popular myth according to Dr. W.E. Dean, Maryville physician. There was no way a blood donor could catch the disease simply from don- ating blood, he said. Developing from fear was the discrimination against AIDS victims, especially those who were among the highest percentage of U.S. recorded cases. Homosexual and bisexual men lay in that percentage according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Even though much blame was placed on homosexual Actor Rock Hudson, 59, co- starred in many movies with Doris Day. Photo by AP Wide World and bisexual men and the il- lness was contracted mainly by them, AIDS spread throughout the United States and became a con- cern for many others, too. Present or past users of in- travenous drugs, persons with hemophilia or other blood-clotting disorders, heterosexual contacts of so- meone with AIDS, or at risk for AIDS, and persons who have had blood transfusions were most susceptible. The disease was spread- ing and made people con- cerned even when needing a blood transfusion. " There was a reluctance unless they really needed it, " Dean said. " There was a stigma or fear. " Money for AIDS research came from different sour- ces. Singer Dionne Warwick and friends donated the pro- ceeds from the sale of their single " That ' s What Friends Are For " to AIDS research. AIDS became an epidemic of fear like polio in the ' 50s, but nobody knew the future of AIDS which left people concerned.

The minor surgery turned into a serious problem. One small polyp (cancerous growth) had been removed; but during the removal, a larger polyp was discovered. The doctors gave him a choice. He could wait two or three weeks or go ahead immediately with the surgery. The president said go ahead. During the 2 hour and 53 minutes of surgery, a portion of the colon was removed. While under anesthesia. President Reagan gave temporary presidency powers to Vice President George Bush. According to the 25th Amendment, anytime the president was incapable of fulfilling his duties as president, the vice president would assume the duties. Two hours after surgery, Reagan once again assumed his role as president. The following Monday, a biopsy in- dicated that the polyp was cancerous. Although doctors felt they had removed all of the cancer, they advised Reagan regarding treatments. Shortly after surgery, the president also had a patch of skin cancer removed from his nose. The scare didn ' t seem to bother Reagan, as he boasted to reporters he was " cancer free. " 0 76 Health Tylenol: History repeated itself. Four years after seven people died from taking cyanide-laced Tylenol cap- sules in Chicago, Diane Elsroth died when she consumed poisoned Extra- Strength Tylenol. The capsules were purchased in Bronxville, N.Y. Since Elsroth ' s death, two more bot- tles of cyanide-laced capsules were discovered in New York. The Food and Drug Administration warned consumers nationwide not to use the painkiller in capsule form. death in New York introduces sequel to fatal cyanide nightmare " I felt Tylenol should be taken off the shelf because people would not buy it after the scares, " Jodi Theis said. " But 1 am an avid Tylenol user and 1 will con- tinue to use it. " A chairman of Johnson Johnson, manufacturers of Tylenol, announced Feb. 19, that all Tylenol capsules would be removed from the shelves. Authorities investigating the case sent the red safety seal and vial to FBI labs to determine whether tampering occurred before or after packaging. The tamper-resistant package was developed in 1982 after seven deaths. It was possible to remove and replace the three layers of seals design- ed to prevent tampering, officials of Johnson Johnson said. After investigation, researchers found seals were broken and replaced after the bottle left the manufacturers. The company offered a $100,000 reward for information about the poisoning.

The fairy tale life of many professional athletes came crashing down in August. It was then that three major league baseball players testified in the trial of former Philadelphia caterer Curtis Strong about the widespread use of drugs in the sport. Testimony provided by Lon- nie Smith of the Kansas City Royals, Enos Cabell of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Keith Her- nandez of the New York Mets unearthed many new devel- opments in the scandal. Hernandez estimated 40 per- cent of all players in 1980 were drug users. The trial looked to be turning from a trial of Curtis Strong to a baseball trial. Then in February, Smith, Cabell, Hernandez, Dave Parker of the Cincinnati Reds, Joaquin Andujar of the Oakland A ' s, Jeff Leonard of the San Fran- cisco Giants and Dale Berra of the New York Yankees were conditionally suspended from baseball for a year without pay by Commissioner Peter Ueber- roth. All suspensions would be ' B " held in abeyance " Ueberroth said, if the players donated 10 percent of their 1986 base salary to a drug prevention pro- gram, submitted to random drug testing for the rest of their playing career and contributed 100 hours of drug-related com- munity service in each of the next two years. The suspensions were im- mediately imposed if any drug test was positive or a player refused to submit to a test when requested. The test covered cocaine, marijuana, heroin and mor- phine. " Professional teams were be- ing too lenient on athletes who were caught with cocaine, " Bearcat football coach Vern Thomsen said. " Testing should be required of all players. Those caught on drugs should be kick- ed out. " The issue of drugs in sports took another turn for the worse when, just hours after the New England Patriots lost Super Bowl XX to the Chicago Bears, a drug scandal was revealed in the Patriot ' s organization. Patriots ' General Manager Patrick Sullivan confirmed six players as " admitted drug abusers. " Four of those six players were Super Bowl star- ters. The question remained on how long the sports world had had problems with drugs. " It seemed the drug problem was new in sports, but it could be it was just being brought out, " athletic trainer D.C. Colt said. " Many players who played football in the ' 50s admitted there was a drug problem. " " Drugs could not be taken out of sports, " Thomsen said. " Take an NFL player, for exam- ple. People didn ' t understand his pressures. Sports didn ' t start a drug problem in society; society started a drug problem in sports. " So who really was responsi- ble for the drug problem in sports? Was it players, owners or fans? " Owners needed to clamp down, " Thomsen said. " Any- time there was a player caught using drugs, he should have been kicked out of the sport. The public had to be tough. The problem wouldn ' t go away unless the public got st rong. ' By Troy Apostol Health 77 Support State Live Aid: Concentrated effort Famine, starvation, drou- ght. These usually weren ' t the words associated with rock music. But on July 13, people did just that. The Live Aid concert, call- ed the Woodstock of the ' 80s by some, was the big- gest undertaking of its kind. Lasting 16 hours, the sim- ultaneous concerts in Phila- delphia and London were broadcast by ABC Rock Radio Network, MTV and ABC-TV and were seen by over one billion people in 160 countries. Support for Live Aid began Christmas 1984 when a group of British musicians released the single " Do They Know It ' s Christmas? " . The group was organized by Bob Geldof of the Boomtown Rats with the help of Boy George, Sting, Bono of G2, Simon LeBon of Duran Duran and many more. American artists count- ered with their own single, " We Are The World. " With these singles bring- ing funds to help save starv- ing people of Ethiopia, Geldof began to organize the Live Aid concert. Beginning at 9 a.m., singer Joan Baez opened the concert in Philadelphia. " I tried to watch the whole concert, " Deb Pauley said. " 1 donated $10 because 1 felt if the stars could give so much time to this event, I could contribute something too. " Both concerts drew some of the biggest talents in the music industry. There were reunions of ar- tists who hadn ' t performed together for years. The Who regrouped to perform at Wembley Stadium in Lon- don for the first time since 1982. Also reunited were Ozzy Osbourne with Black Sab- bath and Robert Plant and ' Jimmy Page of Led Zep- pelin. Perhaps the biggest reu- nion was David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Mash and Neil Young joining forces again in Philadelphia for a performance. Another highlight of the day was Phil Collins ' trans- atlantic flight aboard the Concorde. C ollins perform- ed in London that morning and flew to Phila- delphia for another perfor- mance that evening. One of the most mem- orable moments of the day was Paul McCartney singing " Let it Be " to end the Lon- don concert. " 1 enjoyed the concert because there were all types of music people there, " Pam Allen said. " 1 especially en- joyed seeing the Who and Led Zeppelin reunions. " " 1 liked seeing Tina Turner and Mick Jagger singing together, " Leanna Ross said. " They had the same lip movements. " The finale in Philadelphia featured Bob Dylan singing " Blowing in the Wind, " with Rolling Stones Keith Rich- ards and Ron Wood. " As 1 watched the concert on TV, I felt like 1 was part of it, " Lisa Stevens said. " It seemed like the stars were having fun and were perfor- ming freely. " The concert raised $70 million for starving people of the world. Live Aid would help purchase water-drilling rigs for irrigation, agricultural projects, medical aid and trucks. " After a time the money and aid would reach those who needed it, " Mike Hall- oran said. " 1 was afraid it would arrive too late. " People magazine said Live Aid ' s aim was to renew faith in an old hope: that a powerful and living art could actually change the world. And for one day, maybe it did just that.

With the closing of 54 banks and in- creasing number of foreclosures, the rural mood varied from uncertain to sullen. The public believed the United ' States would feed the world. Banks were encouraged to make low-interest loans to farmers, no matter what the risk. But, the farm economy forced many rural banks to close. Finally, the government decided it should take action. jj " I personally felt the government ! needed to help farmers, " agriculture professor Jan Dauve said. " Eventually, ' though, the government should step out of agriculture altogether. " The government was responsible for bailing out farmers as long as it was iallowed to set prices, " Jeff Parks said. The worst hit areas were Iowa, II- ilinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska and Missouri. According to Time, 60 percent of banks that made loans to ifarmers were in these six states. The farm crisis affected everyone. " Family problems developed because of rough times, " Jennifer Bundrige said. Stories of farmer suicide and shootings became almost daily news. On Dec. 9, Dale Burr, a Hills, Iowa farmer, shot his bank president, his wife and a fellow farmer before shooting himself. It seemed many farmers were distraught over the troubling financial situation. At this point, the only hope for farmers was public aid. On Sept. 23 in Champaign, 111., that hope became reality when Willie Nelson and 50 country and rock performers presented Farm Aid to draw national attention and support to the situation. Within 24 hours after the concert $10 million was pledged via the toll- free phone lines. The farm crisis became a national concern because of public attention and many people realized the seriousness of the situation. By Andy Stahmer Several farmers shared a common despair over their future. For some, self-reliance began to yield to depression and despera tion. -Photo by S. Trunkhill Lot of scratchin ' going on S eventeen states and the District of Columbia gained $8 million in lottery ticket sales, netting more than $3 billion in profits and on the average creating one new millionaire a day. Missouri and Iowa voted to set up state lotteries and begin parimutuel betting. In late August, Iowa started its first lottery with a " mass scratch off " at the Iowa State Fair. " 1 bought two tickets at the fair like thousands of others did, " Brenda Gibbons said. " People were really caught up in the lottery. " During its first month, Missouri ' s lottery set national records. Nearly 24 million tickets were sold in the first week and 14 Missouri residents won prizes of $86,000. While lotteries were established to increase state funding, there was some opposition. " I argued with the majority in Iowa that lotteries were a good source of income and a fun way of taking a chance for the ticket buyers, as long as they watched their dollars, " Sue Stone said. Money collected from sales was divided into three areas. About 45 percent went to player prizes, 10 per- cent went to fund the operation and the remaining 45 percent went into a general fund. This fund allocated money to public schools, higher education, mental health, social ser- vices and state parks. Regardless of where or how the money was used, lottery fever hit Missourians. On Feb. 13, Johnnie Magerl of Kansas City, Kan., became Mis- souri ' s first multi-million dollar win- ner with his spin, winning $2,116,504. While Magerl was a jackpot win- ner, Maryville native, Sharon Wilmes won $25,000. " I told my brother to pick me up a ticket when he got his five, " Wilmes said. " We put the tickets on the table and 1 picked one. I just picked the right one. " Pat McLaughlin, finance professor, won $8,600 in the lottery. " 1 just kept buying tickets, one each week until finally I won, " he said. " I had a feel- ing that sooner or later it would pay off. " Whether people were trying to win instant millions or just wanting to take a chance, the lottery provided the opportunity.

West-bound drivers were greeted with a blue and white ban- ner saying, " To hell with Cosell, Go Royals! " While east-bound drivers saw a red version saying, " Go Cards! " Missourians proudly called it the " Show Me Series, " while the media hyped it as the " 1-70 Series. " Whatever the name, the 82nd annual World Series was all Missouri. St. Louis Cardinal Manager Whitey Herzog called the series the greatest thing in the history of the game, as well as for the people and state of Missouri. But after seven games, it was the people on the western half of the state dressed in Royal blue who had the most to cheer about. The Kansas City Royals became the first team in World Series history to win the championship after dropping the first two games at home. However, in their quest of the title, controversy arose regarding a ques- tionable call in Game No. 6. The Cardinals were one inning away from clinching the championship. They were leading 1-0 in the bottom of the ninth inning, when Royals leadoff hitter Jorge Orta hit a high chopper toward Cardinal first baseman Jack Clark. Clark flipped the ball to Todd Worrell covering the bag. Orta, who appeared to be out, was called safe by first base umpire Don Denkinger. From there, the rest was history. The Royals loaded the bases and with one Series headlines out, pinch hitter Dane lorg delivered a two-run single that gave the Royals a 2-1 victory and tied the series at three games each. The Royals, still on cloud nine from the previous night, soundly defeated the Cardinals 1 1-0 in Game No. 7. During the game, both Herzog and pitcher Joaquin Andujar were ejected. " It was really embarassing for the Cardinals when Andujar showed his emotions on national television, " Vince Edwards said, " it was so close in their grasps. " For Cardinal fans the Series loss was hard to accept, especially after their club got off to a fast start. " I was really surprised by the Series outcome, especially after the Cards were up three games to one, " Jenny Barley said. " Being from St. Louis, I was disappointed in the way the team handled themselves in the last game. " While some Cardinal fans were hang- ing their heads in disbelief, the Royals fans were estatic. " It was excellent that they won the Series, " Dennis Nowatzke said. " It showed a lot of character coming back after being down three games to one. " The signs throughout Royals Stadium kept encouraging fans to believe and the fairy tale comeback made believers of the doubters. The next day, 225,000 fans lined the street to greet the world champions with over 40,000 pounds of paper for a ticker tape parade. Everything was up-to-date in Kansas City, complete with a world champion ship crown. Instant stardom hit players such as pitcher Bret Saberhagen an shortstop Buddy Biancalana. Saberhagen gained notariety not on ly because of his pitching abilities, bui also because he became a father foi the first time during the Series. Saberhagen kept sending messages to his expectant wife through national television. His boyish grin and charm won the hearts of millions and the basebal world felt a part of his happiness with | the arrival of Saberhagen ' s son. During the Series, he gained a son.

A new tuition policy was placed into effect requiring students to pay for classes by the credit hour. And while the administration told students it would not affect costs, students with over 15 hours felt bank balances limiting their education and knowledge. Students also found they were making an extra trip to the Cashiering O ffice. After the drop add policy was changed, there was one ' freebie ' week to decide or another $15 owed. Once in the classroom, students were met y new faces due to a 20 percent staff and faculty turnover. Some faculty wondered how sincere President Hubbard ' s promise to raise teacher ' s salaries to the state ' s norm really was. Although their six percent raise fell short of the proposed 10 percent, it was the highest raise in three years. In the Ad Building, temporary titles were held by many. Others moved papers and plaques to reside in a new office and hold a new title. Bill Dizney took the award for most titles as he became Acting Chairman for several different positions. A proposal by the Environmental Quality Subcommittee to close several buildings on campus to save costs spread rumors rampant and had students wondering what was next to come?

Gieseke 84 Presidential Changes And then there were four Promising only to sit back and observe his first year, President Dean Hubbard went into action with change and reorganization his second year. The major change eliminated two col- leges. " I felt we needed to sharpen the focus of the institution, " Hubbard said. The proposed reorganization plan would reduce the departmental col- leges from six to four, eliminate dean of general studies position and reduce departmental costs. Center of Applied Research would become self-supporting, while addi- .tional plant savings would occur. Faculty would be reduced through ear- ily retirements and natural attrition, THursing and Communications Disorders would be eliminated and various buildings closed. Building changes would be the demolition of two quads, Cauffield and Hawkins. " They were in bad physical condi- tion, " said Bob Henry, Public Relations Officer. " They were not cost efficient and it was unreasonable for us to pour any more money into them. " Closing of all or part of Thompson- Ringold Building, which housed in- dustrial arts, was proposed, but had not yet been passed. Thompson- Ringold was costly to operate accor- ding to Henry. All these changes would not only sharpen the focus of the institution, but would possibly save the University over $1 million in a three-year period. " One could look at it (reorganiza- tion) from several perspectives, " Hub- bard said. " First of all, in terms of the primary needs of our region and the historic strengths of the institution- you look at where those intersect. " Another factor, Hubbard said, was organizing internally so units would be close to the same size. " And from the economic point, we were over-administered, " he said. The six colleges were organized into the following four colleges: College of Agriculture, Science and Technology, which included Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry Physics, Geology Geog- raphy, Military Science, Math- -continued One job as president includes promoting good will and welcoming groups to campus.

College of Business, Government, and Computer Science included Com- puter Science, Accounting, Econ- omics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Office Administration and Government and was headed by Dr. Paul DeYoung. College of Education included Cur- riculum and Instruction, Administra- tion and Guidance, Psychology Sociology, and Health Phys. Ed. and was headed by Dr. Joseph Ryan. College of Fine Arts and Humanities included History Humanities, Art, Music, Theater, Speech, Mass Com- munication and English and was head- ed by Mr. Robert Sunkel. Even though the reorganization plan restructured departments, regular pro- grams were not cut back, Hubbard said, and would therefore not affect students completing their degrees. " It ' s not changing their department, adviser or requirements for their degree, " Hubbard said. As far as the deans ' roles, decisions concerning their departments would be pushed down towards the people they would affect and in turn make them more powerful. This was what Hubbard wanted to see , but concerns arose related to whether or not deans coming from different areas would be supportive of all their departments. " There ' s always a possibility of somebody arguing that they (deans) are going to favor the department they came from, " Hubbard said. " We expect a dean-and they come into the job knowing, that they are to be an ad- vocate for their entire unit and exercise equal concern. " With the elimination of dean of general studies, it was unclear as to what would happen with general study responsibilities. " That ' s not totally clear yet, " Hub- bard said, " but it ' s rather obvious from the structure that the College of Arts and Humanities will have primary responsibilities for general studies.

" Overall we looked at the institution and asked what kind of student faculty ratio we should have in order to main- tain quality, keep the cost down and have an appropriate mix so students can interact on a personal level with faculty, ' Hubbard said. Compared to state and national in- stitutions Northwest ' s ratio of students to deans was way above average. The proposed reorganization plan would hopefully eliminate these pro- blems while saving money and sharp- ening focus of the institution. During his first years of presidency, Hubbard believed reorganization to be a strength. " We have managed to sharpen focus and have a plan in place to bring our salaries to competitive levels, " Hub- bard said. " I believed Master Plan (the complete, overal l goals and proposals of the university) was a strength.

Trunl hill Presidential Changes 87 Trying them on for size cinder the reorganization policy, changes In the administrative offices caused many responsibilities to shift. Some were temporary and others were unclear as to future Involvement, but changes were made for each ad- ministrator to be able to focus on his specialized and most productive areas. " Uniting People and Opportunity, " the slogan chosen for the Center for Applied Research, was Dr. Robert Bush ' s area of concentration. Vice President Director of Applied Re- search, Bush was lifted of several responsibilities in order to concentrate on this major undertaking. Center for Applied Research was " a program, a philosophy, an environ- ment for people to interact and do a variety of things, " Bush said. With his previous responsibilities, such as environmental services, mailroom operations, Campus Safety and Specialized Projects, Bush would have been unable to use his abilities ef- fectively in all areas. " There was no way we (Center for Applied Research) could have become self-supporting while carrying out those other responsibilities, " Bush said. Bush focused mainly on the Center for Applied Research. One priority was the Potato Project. The Potato Project combined a coalition of farmers, business people, faculty and students who Interacted in order to make a detailed analysis of production, transportation, marketing and consumption for potatoes to be produced in the region. The result would be a financed business plan. " The only limitation we had was our own imagination and ability to take the initiative, " Bush said. Although there was much en- thusiasm and generating of ideas and technology with the Center for Applied Research, Bush stressed that the whole endeavor would be, and always will be, second hand to education. Bush was not excited and motivated solely toward the Center for Applied Research, but also showed enthusiasm towards his job in general. " My job was extremely exciting because there weren ' t two moments that were Identical, " Bush said. " I worked with new groups of people, I helped people do what they wanted to do. It was a very creative endeavor, and in my mind I think I had the best job on campus. " A big change in administration oc- curred when Dr. George English, vice president of academic affairs, an- nounced his resignation after being employed nine years as vice president. " There comes a time in everybody ' s administrative career when you know you ' ve probably done all you can do, " English said. As for future accomplishments and plans, English was undecided. " I ' ve got a year in which to take a look at life and see what I want to do, " English said. " Maybe I ' ll want to go fishing on the ' 102-1 don ' t know. " What English did know was a person couldn ' t just walk away from some- thing that his heart was tied up in. English simply wanted a change. " I loved the job, but it was time, " he said. Changing was also what Dr. John Mees had done since being employed by the University in 1971. Mees acted in many different capacities, gaining broad experience and knowledge of the University. Mees was involved in developing the agricultural degree and former nursing programs. He helped coordinate the presidential search committee with the Board of Regents in 1976, maintained textbook services and expanded the In- tramurals program. Formerly Vice President of Student Development, Mees now holds the Vice President of Administrative and Stu- dent Services position. Mees viewed the administrative changes as a challenge and positive ex- perience. " It (the administrative reorganiza- tion) tried to clarify each vice presi- dent ' s responsibilities and free people to do things where they had the great- est strengths, " he said. Administrative changes re-asslgned responsibilities to administrators who were thought to be able to handle them more productively. Administrators ac- cepted the change and felt it was positive.

Each production required a lot of work from cast and crew, but the experience was worth the effort. Last March three one act p lays were presented in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. All were student directed and lasted over three hours. " People thought the performances were a little long, " student director Lin- da Jones said. Jones directed " The Chastening, " which dealt with punish- ment, " it was a serious play and 1 think it went over pretty good, " she said. Ted Thomas was writer and student director of " Messiah. " " it was a show with a lot of meaning to it, " Greg Thomas said. " The Indian Wants the Bronx " presented a very violent side to the au- dience. " Reactions seemed to enjoy it, " director Russ Williams said. There were three major productions presented. " Carousel, " a musical, was presented in October. A children ' s Christmas show, " Kaleidoscope, " was a December production and " When You Coming Back, Red Ryder? " a drama set during the Vietnam era, was presented in March. The plays gave interested theatre students an opportunity to gain hands- on experience. " They (the theatre department) gave me a chance to do it myself and make mistakes before 1 got out in the real world, " said Tom Leith, news media coordinator for Alpha Psi Omega, the national honorary theatre society. Leith said theatre majors were re- quired to work on shows. They got a chance to learn about different com- ponents of theatre, from acting to technicals, such as lighting and props. Being a theatre major could be dif- ficult at times, Leith said, because in addition to working on each play, students also had to deal with pressure from other classes. In a sense, this made theatre work more difficult for students than for professionals, who don ' t have to worry about finding time to study. Each play had its own problems to be solved. Technical cues for sound ef- fects and lighting had to be matched, props had to be found or constructed, machinery checked and auditions and rehearsals held. " Sometimes you had to overcome personal conflicts about the way things were done, too, " Leith said. " Those were usually minor problems. " The addition of Mary Linn Perform- ing Arts Center was a boost for morale, Leith said. Although the theatre department had facilities at Horace Mann and Charles Johnson Theater, and sometimes utilized the Spanish Den in the Union, the state-of-the-art Mary Linn Theater had some built-in advantages. " 1 was really impressed with the building the first time I saw it, " Leith said. " It ' s an attractive building and fun to work in. The other buildings were nice, too, but Charles Johnson was more music-oriented. " Leith said Mary Linn ' s added space allowed for freedom of movement, making everyone ' s job easier. The seating arrangement was also superior to other facilities. Experience, job preparation and a chance to find exactly what theatre work entails were benefits of the university ' s theatre program. " The object was to turn out well- rounded theatre majors, " Leith said. " The facilities and teachers made it in- teresting.

And, five, six, Lseven, eight... " Hours of effort, lots of sweat, sore uscies and hoarse voices went into aking the final Northwest Celebra- ion performances. Officially named Northwest Celebra- ion Madraliers, the group was a 4-voice show choir, whose members kere selected in the fall during the first iiiveek of classes. Directed by Rick Weymuth, Celebra- ion performed two styles of music in- cluding pop and jazz while wearing Flashy black and turquoise outfits. Big syes and bright smiles were essential in a pop performance. The group also performed Renaissance music. " During my undergraduate work here there was no group with the pred- ion, the excitement level, just simply jthe pizzazz that Celebration puts Forth, " said Roger Kelly, the only graduate student in the group. Celebration performed various kinds of popular music: everything from bub- ly " Celebrate Tonight " to sultry " Slaves to the Music " and haunting " A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square. " The Madraliers presented their an- nual costumed performance on the final weekend of Renaissance Festival in Kansas City. " 1 liked the impromptu concerts at the Renaissance Festival, " John Standerford said. " We were rubbing elbows with all the people. They came up behind us and looked over our shoulders at the music. I really liked to get out with the people. " In addition, the group put on an elaborate, annual Yuletide Feaste in December, with one performance in Kansas City and two in Maryville. A castle wall and moat were built around the entrance to the ballroom. Banners were hung and pine cones, evergreens and candles decorated the tables. " We had specific duties to do for each performance, and we did them, " Standerford said. " Because if we didn ' t, we knew there were 30-some people who were going to be let down. " Celebration also went on tour with their pop show in the fall and then again during spring break. The pop show included pop and jazz group numbers, six of them choreographed, as well as solos, duets and quartets put together by group members. For many members touring was their favorite part of being in the group. But touring did have drawbacks. Wakeup calls came as early as 5 a.m. to get on the bus and ride to the next concert. And when they arrived, there wasn ' t always time to set up equip- ment, change into outfits and warm up voices. Despite this, going on tour was looked upon as valuable experience and lots of fun. " The thing I liked most was the unity we had as a group, " Traci Tornquist said. Celebration received a special honor. They were chosen to be the clinic dance group for the Missouri Music Educators ' Association conven- tion at Tan-Tar-A in January. There, with choreographer Sally Albrecht, they demonstrated how Albrecht teaches dance moves and what the final product looked like. Many hours went into perfecting the musical numbers, but members felt it was all well worth it. By Laura Day Juggling fire is an eye grabber for Madrigal Feaste attenders.

Trunkhill 94 Business and Government Browning Exchange promotes cultural understanding The Great Wall of China, floating lomes, temples, museums and many :ultural events were reasons for isiting China, but for Drs. Edward and sharon Browning, the main purpose vas to spend eight weeks teaching at he University of International 3usiness and Economics in Beijing. Mr. Browning is chairman of the ac- :ounting department and Mrs. Brown- ng chairs the marketing and interna- ional business department. The reason behind the Brownings ' isit was an agreement to exchange Ijrofessors between Northwest and the Jniversity of International Business ind Economics. Though the Brownings enjoyed their stay in Beijing, they missed home. The things 1 missed most were the oeople and the ability to communicate, iaugh and share with others, " Mr. 3rowning said. Mrs. Browning agreed and also men- ioned missing the " ability to go to the ap and get a drink of water, " because t was dangerous from a health point of lew. She also missed blue skies ecause weather and pollution kept the hinese sky grey during most of their tay. Feeling isolated was another pro- blem the Brownings faced in China. The only real outside-China news they received during their stay was contain- ed in letters from friends. Because television was in Chinese, there was no news from that media, and the English language Chinese daily newspaper car- ried mostly news from China, spiced only by negative news that focused on anti-CJ.S. government feeling in the United States. Both professors enjoyed teaching, though, and had high praise for their students, who worked for various Chinese import-export corporations. They had complete freedom to teach what and how they wanted to teach, and they found English was no big pro- blem to communication. Students even took lecture notes in English. Mrs. Browning said students " were motivated, very interested and en- thusiastic and most wanted the oppor- tunity to come to the United States to study. " The Brownings ' trip resulted in the decision of one top official from the In- stitute of International Economic Management to come to the United States and Northwest. Kan Changyou enrolled in an expected two-year pro- gram leading to a master ' s in business administration. Kan hopes the program will expand to include student exchange. " Exchanging students would help both countries, " Kan said. After the China exchange, Mrs. Browning related several aspects of the experience to her students. " It helped in international business classes and principals of marketing to explain historically how developing countries changed, " she said. " I ap- preciated our system more in the at- tempt to integrate and apply. The oriental education system had more tendency for memorization rather than application and integration in decision making. " The trip gave Mrs. Browning another chance to view and compare United States ' economy with China ' s. Mr. Browning compared the educa- tional institutions. He explained that Chinese students knew of the superior system of education in the United States. He came away from the Chinese teaching experience more cer- tain than ever of the excellence of educational systems in the United States.

" -Photo by T. Cape ,1 i--.- -v •School of Business Government 9d Dewhirst .Government Department. Combining the best of both worlds When Dr. Robert Dewhirst, govern- rient professor, attended college, his nthusiasm for school showed not only uring the week, but on dreaded Mon- ay mornings, too. Former colleagues would sleepily iiather in the lounge, only to be foliow- d in by " bubbling " Dewhirst. Monday aornings soon began with a challenge o pass " The Dewhirst Monday Morn- ng Test " --a test passed only " if you ere in a stage of life where on Monday norning, you were looking forward to he week, " according to Dewhirst. Dewhirst passed this test early in Ife, but didn ' t capture his dream of eaching until after he experienced )ther jobs. Beginning in journalism, working for mall town newspapers and eventually he Kansas City Star, Dewhirst picked ip valuable experience and know- edge. " Journalism was an education in self, " Dewhirst said. " 1 got a crash ;ourse on life. " Dewhirst ' s dream remained in the teaching field. Earning a bachelor ' s degree in both journalism and political science, his next problem was deciding which area he wanted to teach. " I thought 1 wanted to teach jour- nalism, but my interest in politics and journalism fed on each other, " Dewhirst said. A compromise became Dewhirst ' s answer when he decided to teach politics, but required students to write journalistic papers on political topics. Dewhirst believed, even though government was the subject taught, the ability to communicate was impor- tant in any area. Politics became Dewhirst ' s career while journalism became his hobby. " Your hobby and your work all blend together, " Dewhirst said. " If you can get to that phase, if you can get your life where it ' s like that, you can ' t beat it. " Journalism proved to be Dewhirst ' s hobby in the sense that he used his skills to write papers outside of his work, but was able to use his past jour- nalism experiences in his political teachings, too. " 1 pulled examples out of my past so it made it (government) easier to understand, " Dewhirst said. His ability to rely on experiences in order to clarify a point, combined with his positive and enthusiastic attitude, allowed students enrolled in his classes to expect an energetic 50 minutes. Dewhirst credited his happiness towards his work and life to his diverse experience and career opportunities prior to teaching. Being able to compare and look back on a different lifestyle gave Dewhirst the advantage to decide how good he really had it and how ap- preciative he should be. This happiness stemmed from the day he decided what he wanted in life, geared towards that goal, and met Monday mornings with an optimistic approach and conquered his dream of teaching politics while enjoying his in- terest in journalism.

Lockling College of Education " 98 Education Horace Mann .Elementary Education. Not just kidding around Experience and education combined to make Horace Mann Learning Center advantageous to both Northwest students and elementary students. Horace Mann was an elementary school which provided undergraduate and graduate students opportunities for observation, participation and teaching in nursery through grade six. " Horace Mann was to education ma- jors the same as the farm was to agriculture students, " said Dr. Frank Grispino, chairman of Horace Mann. Although little actual student teaching was done at Horace Mann, practical ex- perience was gained through observa- tion. " Prospective teachers could read what teaching a class would be like, " Dr. Ann Laing said, " but to be more practical, students had to experience it themselves, and that was one of the reasons why Horace Mann was there. " Education majors agreed. " It gave me experience and confidence, and 1 felt 1 could go out and teach well, " Gina Miller said. " It was a valuable asset to the college and community. " Horace Mann accommodated needs of education majors, but what about the quality of education lab school students received? " The public schools had excellent facilities and teachers, but I felt the kids that went here got a little more education, " Laing said. " They were ex- posed to many different people teaching them and the school was on campus, so we had much more to offer students than public schools were capable of. " Northwest students who were taught at Horace Mann said the school had many unique qualities. The strong points included the size of classes, assortment of instructors, resources available because of the university and the feeling of " family " unity. " Classes were smaller and we had more time for individual instruction, " Lisa Smeltzer said. " We also had the advantage of using university facilities. " After graduating from Horace Mann and enrolling in a public school, Smeltzer said individual attention was no longer there. Although this required an adjustment, she believed she had been well prepared for it. Former Horace Mann student, Kim- bal Mothershead, did not feel short- changed by attending a lab school, either. " We had many more advantages than public school kids, " he said. " Dur- ing the time 1 went to Horace Mann, we had a lot of play time, and little to no homework, which was because our learning was more concentrated. We learned to do our homework in class. This didn ' t seem to affect us during high school. We went ahead and did the homework assigned. " Another Horace Mann student, Steve Moss, said Horace Mann enhanced family unity. Many parents of students were university faculty and therefore, vacation time fell together for the en- tire family. In the midst of a growing world where education has a stronger em- phasis, Horace Mann was an institution where practicing teachers and educa- tion majors had a chance to teach grade school students in a controlled environment. Though Horace Mann is a long-standing institution, its educa- tion techniques were modern. By Debby Kerr Andy Stahmer Education Horace Mann 99 Athletes face new decision Due to policy changes regarding tui- tion, many varsity athletes were faced with a choice concerned with enroll- ment in their particular sport. Seven years ago, varsity athletes didn ' t need to make a choice. " Varsity sports were given the same status as physical education activities, " said Dr. James Herauf, chairman of the depart- ment of health, physical education, recreation and dance, " and thus not figured into the student ' s GPA. " " The following year it was changed so varsity sports were considered academic, meaning it figured into the student ' s GPA, " Herauf said. In the past, students paid a fixed rate for tuition, regardless of credit hour totals. However, a new tuition policy meant students paid per credit hour. Varsity athletes had to decide whether to pay for their one-hour varsity sport for academic credit or to simply par- ticipate without it. Athletes had the option to enroll in a one credit per year course, which was essentially their varsity sport. The system gave athletes academic credit for their varsity participation. The course could be repeated by the athlete annually-each time receiving one hour of credit. The course numbers varied depending on the athlete ' s year of eligibility. Students on full-ride scholarships were given 15 hours of free credit. However, hours exceeding 15 were paid for by the student. What were most students doing? " I ' d say over half of the tennis team was enrolled in varsity tennis, " Jill Per- rin said. " 1 plan to take it each year. " The effect was also minimal on the baseball program. " It really made no significant difference to our people, " Coach Jim Johnson said. Enrollment didn ' t drop due to the new format. " 1 doubted that athletes would fail to enroll in these classes simply due to the policy change, " Herauf said. Good attendance was sign of a good grade. " If you went to practices regularly and worked hard, it usually meant a good grade, " Mark Thomsen said. However, not everyone felt the same. " 1 probably would not have taken the hour credit if 1 wasn ' t on scholarship, " Scott Calcaterra said. Some felt their GPA could be in- creased through enrollment of such a class. " Essentially, you just pay to have your GPA raised a little bit, especially if you ' re not on scholarship, " Tony DiCataldo said. Should athletes be given credit for participating in varsity athletics? The opinions differed. " I disagree with athletics for credit. What one did athletically shouldn ' t af- fect one academically, " Perrin said. Credit hours did not change reasons for enrolling. " The athletes were here because 1 1 they wanted to be, " DiCataldo said.il " Credit hours didn ' t make that much of a difference one way or the other. " Athletes seemed to feel strongly toward their work and dedication meriting credit. " We should definitely be given credit because of all the work we put into it, " Calcaterra said. " Also we took weekly tests for basketball over plays, defenses, techniques and so on. We definitely earned one hour of credit. " By Pat Schleeter Most athletes take advantage of credit for their sport. Sherri Miller, who received one hour volleyball credit, spikes the ball against a block- ing opponent. -Photo by S.

Cape Sports for Credit 101 Students get computerized roommates With the ' 80s came the high tech world of computers. Computer mania hit the public hard and Northwest was no exception. Whether or not a major in computers was sought, enrolling in computer classes was advised in order to survive in competitive job markets. With this, Northwest featured Colbert Hall as an exclusive computer dorm. Twelve freshmen were awarded the Mathematics Science Teaching Scholarship. To be eligible, they had to be a Missouri resident and rank in the top 25 percent of their graduating class. They also had to pledge to teach science or math for at least two years in Missouri after graduation. The amount of scholarships, ranging from $400 to $1,170, depended on ACT scores and class rank. Renewal of the scholarship was based on maintain- ing a minimum cumulative 3.0 grade point average (GPA). " To keep the scholarship, we in Col- bert Hall must maintain a 3.5 GPA for four years. Any year we don ' t maintain that grade point, we must pay back all monies paid to us for that scholar- ship, " Tracy Gach said. The freshmen were worried about the GPA requirement and most felt it was too high. " 1 believed this program was very good, " Lanny Lewis said. " The hardest part of the program was satisfying the 3.5 GPA. " Though the conditions of having the scholarship might have been tough to uphold, students enjoyed having a computer always available. All of them saw an advantage to hav- ing computers in their rooms, but most did nothing more than write letters home and type papers on the terminal. " I could do my papers, look up open classes, student ' s addresses, telephone numbers and even current events, " Laura Majors said. " It was really nice to have com- puters, even though 1 wasn ' t taking any computer classes this semester, " Suzanne Mann said. " 1 used the com- puter for writing letters and keeping records. " Learning to be comfortable with a computer was an important objective. Using computers as a tool for learning math and science-related projects was also important. " Obviously computers are the tool of the future. This was just the beginning of our campus growth in this area, " said Bill Dizney, head of Student Special Services. For some students having access to the computers 24 hours a day made it possible to be user friendly and become familiar with its advantages. " I used a word processer for writing Print outs make editing an easier job. Kelly Qreaves works on a class assignment. -Photo by M.

" Now 1 really feel comfortable with it. I ' m looking for- ward to more work with it. " Dr. David Smith, dean of the College of Science, Math and Computer Science was optimistic about the pro gram ' s growth potential. Each year 30 new students may join. " The word got out and we quickly had applicants and inquiries about next year ' s program, Smith said. The future looked bright for the rest of the students housed on campus. The administration sought state funding for a program that would provide com- puters and phones in every dorm room at no cost to students. " We wanted students to have everything possible available to them that could aid in learning, " said John Mees, vice president for Student Development. " The long term benefits of such a program were numerous, " Mees said. " Each student ' s computer could be us- ed as a television, video player, con- nection to tutorial modules and access to information from the library. " The experiment in Colbert Hall brought the possibility of having com- puters in every dorm room closer to reality.

Amazing astronomical interest Curiosity in the stars and in the earth ' s galaxy kept astronomy a popular general education science course, with all 120 seats being filled quickly whenever the class was of- fered. In class, students did a bit of math, physics and chemistry, whether they realized it or not. They also learned how to plot stars and find constella- tions. " Actually my astronomy students used pretty sophisticated science techniques, although that was what they were trying to avoid by taking the class, " Dr. Jim Smeltzer said. " But as long as 1 explained the material clearly, my students didn ' t seem to have any difficulty with it at all. " Another part of the course included labs and telescope observations. The majority found observations inter- esting and educational. Students were guided through obser- vations by lab assistants, who were chosen from past astronomy classes. Most students weren ' t science majors. Smeltzer felt most people took the class because they had been exposed to space life ever since they were born. Since then, new discoveries have taken place. Astronomy gave students an op- portunity to participate in what was go- ing on in their world. " 1 took the class because I wanted to be able to point out constellations. I ' d seen stars every night, but I never real- ly knew which were which, " Tracy Hurst said. " 1 also thought it might im- press girls. " Generally, students enjoyed the class because Smeltzer made it com- prehensible to them. " 1 really had a good time teaching astronomy. It was great to see non- science majors becoming so involved in the course, " Smeltzer said. " I tried to make it fun for students and they never ceased to amaze me by doing things with science they never thought they ' d be able to accomplish. " For several students involved in class, their astronomy education didn ' t stop when the course was over. Past students were always calling Smeltzer to ask questions or sending him clipp- ings of something they found in- teresting. About 20 percent of his students came back and asked to use the telescopes. " 1 really felt students left the course having thoroughly enjoyed it, " Smeltzer said. Astronomy ' s popularity relied on its simplicity and its ability to interest students. As long as space remained a significant part of students ' lives, so would astronomy.

Sorabji 1 06 Ag. and Applied Science IA Car Pinto forms mobile classroom The Bearcat High Performance Team certainly lived up to its name in competition. The team was composed of in- dustrial arts and technology majors and students interested in power mechanics and energy conservation. They modified a 1975 Ford Pinto, donated by Dr. John Rhoades, into a fuel efficient, aerodynamic vehicle capable of 42 miles per gallon. The team entered the car in Three Flags Econorallye. The Econorallye was intended to show how fuel efficient engines, aerodynamic bodies, clean exhaust systems and high performance improved fuel efficiency, it began in Vancouver, British Columbia, Aug. 11 and covered about 1,500 miles, ending in Mexico, Aug. 20. " it gave them (industrial arts students) a chance to test some things they learned, and see what other peo- ple were doing, " said Rhoades, who directed the project. " They learned new things in the field. " Rhoades was involved in competi- tions in 1976 and 1978. He said the main difference in this rally was a new event, the Monte Carlo competition. " All cars started from the same place and each had to reach the finish in a specific time, " Rhoades said. The competition covered several types of terrain along a 98-mile route from Bellingham to Seattle, Wash. Those who prepared the car for this and the Econorallye ' s other events were Jerry Price, Rodney Peterson, Larry Heckman and Rhoades. Price and Wayne Flanary drove the car in com- petition. Team captain Kevin Larson helped organize the team. He wrote the con- stitution and helped get the team ac- cepted as an official campus organiza- tion, which entitled it to university fun- ding. " It helped me learn to organize, and showed me how the university system worked in providing funding, " Larson said. The team ' s work paid off by finishing first in the Monte Carlo competition. " Our car held together when some other cars didn ' t, " Rhoades said. With about $1,000 in modifications and $500 for the car itself, the Pinto was probably the least expensive entry. Rhoades said some other cars were much more expensive, with the first place entry costing about $125,000. The Pinto placed first in Class C competition, which featured vehicles weighing over 2,000 pounds. The team placed third overall. Gaining practical experience, Larson said the competiton also created con- tacts in the automotive industry and a chance to do personal research for those involved. Rhoades said the next goal was to build a vehicle capable of 100 mpg.O By Kelly Kirkpatrick Formalities are taken care of by Kevin Larson.

Their eyes were fixed on the chute from where the next calf was to emerge. The chute opened, the steer jumped out and in a flash, the team of ropers were in pursuit. Walker and Clement were at the an- nual Jackpot Roping Contest spon- sored by the Agriculture Club. It was held Oct. 6, at the John Hancock Research Center, north of Maryville on Highway 71. The contest included novice and open calf roping, novice and open team roping and barrel rac- ing. Walker ' s and Clement ' s parents par- ticipated in the contest. ■ ' I loved it, (attending roping con- tests), " Clement said. " If we didn ' t rope during the summer, we wouldn ' t do much of anything. " The roping was originally scheduled Sept. 29, but was rained out and mov- ed to the following week. This time it was a day of sunny skies with a high of 72 degrees. Perhaps the weather was too perfect though, said Bryan Reasoner, presi- dent of the Ag Club. " We ' re lucky it was nice out because we wouldn ' t have been able to have it (the contest) otherwise, " Reasoner said. " But, 1 don ' t think we had as good a turnout, because there were several people working in the fields. " Local participation was good, said Kathi Clement, Amy ' s mother and a participant in team roping. " They had lots of good help here, " Mrs. Clement said. " It went about as smooth as any roping I ' ve been to. " The entire event was run by Ag Club members. They worked the stock, ran the chute, announced, clocked and judged events, paid the winners and did all the other things involved in sponsoring a roping contest. " A great deal of work and organiza- tion went into it, " Dan Miller said. Miller, a member of the Ag Club, par- ticipated in the novice team roping division. Another student, Jana Findley, also competed in the activities. She rode her horse in the barrel racing competi- tion and finished third. Overall, most participants and spec- tators thought the day was a success. " The contest really went well, " Reasoner said. " We didn ' t have nearly the turnout we expected, but I ' m happy things went smoothly, with no major complications.

No ac- counting allowed. Reply if otherwise in- volved in area. With only seven years in existence, the public relations (PR) major has had difficulty finding a suitable home. Established in the mass communica- tions department, it eventually became part of the speech department in Fall 1985. Started by Dr. Bob Bohlken, then chairman of the speech theatre depart- ment, the curriculum was designed by Bohlken with help from the Kansas Ci- ty Advertising Marketing Club. It was then the decision was made to offer a multi-disciplined program encompass- ing communications, business, graphic arts, speech and ethics. One reason for the department transfer, according to Dr. Kathy Webster, speech department chairper- son, was the scholastic benefits. A larger department would provide more financial benefits. A larger budget could provide more faculty to serve students. " The initial reason for moving was the growth in the PR program, " said Dr. Rick Bayha, past chairman of the mass communications department. " Communications didn ' t have enough qualified staff with the swing in em- phasis. We felt PR had an uncomfor- table home in our department, being heavily weighted toward interpersonal communication. " " There is nothing inherently wrong with a PR program situated in the speech department, " said Dr. Dean Kruckeberg, coordinator of the PR degree program at the University of Northern Iowa and initial instigator and teacher of PR at Northwest. " Although it is most commonly placed in mass communications, it depends on in- structors and appropriate curriculum. " There stood the problem. Who was to decide exactly what the appropriate curriculum actually was? It was its diverse academia areas that helped promote the program, but some students felt diversity also left gaps. " I felt the program was not specific enough, " graduate Yvonne Dowdy said. " We didn ' t have the opportunity to take a given area and expand. I just received a taste of broadcast, advertis- ing and writing. 1 enjoyed my promo- tion class, but it was angled toward sales and marketing, not PR. " Of course some students felt the broad spectrum of classes was beneficial. " The combination of so many different areas really added, " graduate Bruce Winston said. " Such a variety opened your mind to explore different subjects. " Writing courses seemed to be an area in which the major lacked. " Although I was satisfied at the time, now that I ' m working in PR, 1 feel there should have been more writing class- es, " graduate Andrea McGrath said. " As a PR major, I felt there were some vital classes missing from the curriculum, " Bob Lewis said. " A PR writing class would have been a tremendous asset. " While some students felt the pro- gram needed additions, others felt it could also do without some courses or needed revisions in structure. " Most of the courses were practical, but some, such as accounting, 1 wondered why they were ever included as a requirement, " Steve Moss said. Other suggestions included adding courses aimed specifically at the area of PR; direct mail, practicums, media buying, photography, more advertising and public opinion. " 1 always felt for an entry level posi- tion, journalism students at Northwest were probably better prepared than PR, " Kruckeberg said. " It was the extracurricular activities offered or available which opened up areas to learn and explore, " Winston said. " The major had diverse subjects with a broad scope that enabled me to look at different fields and use my elec- tives to focus in. " So whether the speech department needed to focus or broaden their cur- riculum was left unanswered. As for the initial transfer, most PR majors felt it would be beneficial. " It was probably a good move, " Lewis said. " The speech department was better qualified to handle the pro- gram and the change had a positive ef- fect on the amount of assistance received by the faculty. " " The PR department has been kind of pushed around, " Moss said. " It hasn ' t developed a permanent home. I don ' t know if it should be mass com- munications or speech, but it needs to be somewhere permanent. Then, that department can build a foundation in- stead of starting from scratch all the time. " " The program is in good hands and has practically unlimited growth potential now, " said Dean of Com- munications LaDonna Geddes. " We have high hopes for the program and its students.

Chris Stobbs worked as a news in- tern for KCMO, a Kansas City radio sta- tion. She did field reporting and telephone interviews for the station, among other things. " It was fantastic, " Stobbs said. " I learned so much actual- ly working in the field-more than 1 would in classes. That ' s not knocking Northwest, it ' s just that 1 learned more by actually doing it than just studying about it. " What could students who took in- ternships expect? Suzanne Jones, managing editor of Maryville ' s Daily Forum, said students working for the publication had the same respon- sibilities as other staff members. " They were treated just like anyone else working for us, " she said. " In other words, we didn ' t give them any breaks. " Jones said interns were expected to show up for work on time, dress ap- propriately and produce professional work. Each one had specific duties and responsibilities. Teresa Schuelke worked at the Daily Forum eight weeks during summer school. She said it gave her a better idea of what it was like to work at a pro- fessional newspaper. She learned about getting records from the cour- thouse and how to write stories quick- ly- " It taught me how to sit down and do a story right away, " Schuelke said. " 1 didn ' t have a week to do it, 1 had a day to do it. " Dana Kempker spent 10 weeks dur- ing the summer as an intern through the American Society of Magazine Editors in New York City with Guideposts magazine. As a participant in this exclusive internship, which only accepts 50 students nationwide, Kemp- ker learned how rewriting, editing, fact-finding, research and interviews were done at professional magazines. " It gave me an understanding of magazines and how they worked, " Kempker said. " It was very eye- opening because it wasn ' t how 1 thought it would be. " She said she had expected vast, high tech equipment and a fast pace, but found magazines were actually much more informal. Kempker felt she changed a lot dur- ing her internship. " A big part of it was learning to survive in New York, " she said. " It helped me learn to be more in- dependent and responsible. " She also realized editorial work wasn ' t what she wanted for herself. " I lean more towards the area of advertis- ing instead of editorial work now, " she said. There were other students who traveled out of state to learn about their chosen profession. Laurie Engle was an intern in Washington, D.C. for Ted Turner ' s Cable News Network (CNN). Engle worked as an economics correspondent for the network ' s " Money Line " last spring. " I had one of the better internships at CNN, because 1 got to go out and get information, " Engle said. One of Engle ' s responsibilities in- cluded taking notes at congressional finance hearings on Capitol Hill. She also learned about the technical side of television programs by doing editorial work. " I got a good feel for the way things were done at a network level TV station, " Engle said. Engle also made some important contacts which could be useful in the future. " It may be a cliche, but in this business, it really is who you know that ' s important, " she said. Making contacts, gaining respon- sibility and learning what the field of journalism was like from the inside was what journalism internships gave students. For journalism interns, the ex- perience gained was worth the long hours. They expanded their knowledge and learned lessons no journalism class would teach. They learned what being a professional journalist was all about. , By Kelly Kirkpatrick ' School of Communication " Communication Interns 113 .General Studies.

Trunkhill 114 General Studies Seminar Survival tactics, course 101 Amid all the changes students and staff underwent this year, the incoming freshmen faced a new type of extended orientation-freshman seminar. " Freshman seminar gave keys to genera! skills that wouldn ' t have hurt any student to improve upon, " speech instructor Craig Brown said. " It also taught survival skills for situations out of class. " The course was in session Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. for all freshmen. Students were divided into sections according to selected majors and assigned to advisers serving as course instructors. " Initially, there was some disagree- ment about how we should break up the groups, " said Dr. Roy Leeper, Dean of General Studies and initiator of the seminar. " One advantage of grouping the majors together was they got to meet the instructor, who would also double as their adviser, but it put the undeclared majors at a disadvantage. " The primary goal of the class was to facilitate freshmen adjustment to col- lege life. " It would be safe to say freshman seminar was composed of three ingre- dients, " Leeper said, " preparing the student academically for college, aiding the shock of social change and introducing students to various depart- ments. But the main reason for the course was to make students unders- tand general education requirements. That was why 1 felt a need for this pro- gram, " he said. In addition, freshmen studied how to get more out of reading, to " disarm " tests and budget time efficiently. Guest speakers addressed classes and ex- plained how classes offered in their specific department would help meet general education requirements and how the skills and facts learned in class would help on jobs. Despite the benefit to some, many freshmen felt the class was not necessary. " Although the class was helping some, I learned the majority of material covered in class in high school, " Christi Boyd said. " It was real- ly a waste of my time and just another place to be when I could have been working on other things. " Leanna Ross thought students would benefit more from the class if it was all discussion. " If we could have discussed what we were going through and then had the teacher advise us on what to do about our problems, it would have been much more helpful, " she said. Others agreed. " I was going through a freshman crisis and needed to talk and find out if others felt the same way 1 did, " Amy Erickson said. Several freshmen said the instructor, and what he or she planned for the class, could make a big difference. " Some classes had speakers on various topics and things like library tours, which would have been infor- mative, " Shelli Navara said. One of the major complaints among freshmen was cost of the textbook re- quired for the course. " The book cost about $15 and we haven ' t used it once, " Navara said. " I didn ' t have that kind of money to waste. " Amid all the heat the course took, shouts of praise arose from those who were not adapting quite as well. " 1 real- ly found the classes interesting, and some of that information proved very valuable, " Craig Schultz said. " It was nice to have one class that was so relaxed, " Mary Finnegan said. " The instructors didn ' t really push as they did in some classes. " Even the instructors of the class agreed it was difficult to fail the course. " As far as 1 was concerned, just by showing up, listening, and passing tests, freshmen could easily pass the class, " said Paul Gullifor, mass com- munications instructor. " But then again, the class was not intended to ex- pose freshmen to failure. Instead, it was to show them the promise of suc- cess.

Assisting President Dean Hubbard, Ager found her experience rewarding. Working for the president consisted of a continuous flow of action because there was always something going on. Although Ager worked with Hubbard on reports and gathering information for speeches, her work was centered around the area of market research. " An Analysis of Enrollment Poten- tial at Northwest " was the title of an in- depth research project Ager and assis- tant professor of marketing, Don Nothstine put together. Ager and Nothstine ' s market research determin- ed what market shares the University had and provided valuable information for recruitment purposes.

Ager gained many personal rewards during her graduate program and recommended everyone try a graduate program. " It was challenging. I know so much more than I would ever have known not getting the degree, " she said. Even though Ager gained intellec- tually from her graduate program, she also developed a high quality attitude towards her work. " President Hubbard was very quality-oriented and I learned to be like that too, " she said. Deciding to advance into graduate school could be a tough decision, but Ager believed it would be of help in the long run.

Many believed once gra- duate school was completed, a high paying and glorious job would be awaiting them. Grad students could set their immediate expectations too high. Getting a foot in the door followed by hard work would still be required. A quality graduate program was a definite plus for any university and judging from her experience, Ager believed Northwest ' s was such a pro- gram. " I got to know the teachers on a personal basis and the classes were really good curriculum-wise, " she said.

Greeks were most affected by the changes and tried to regain a more positive image through mandatory dry rush, sponsoring Candy Lightner with Mothers Against Drunk Driving and participating in community-wide projects. Several organizations banned together to bring alcohol misuse into the limelight by participating in Alcohol Awareness Week. They joined forces again during the United Campus Ministries Community Care Day, showing pride in their in- dividual groups as they scraped and painted Maryville homes. Students in departmental groups were less affected by new policies and ordinances, but still remained active in career days, a rodeo and social activities. Policies which affected all students were proposed by the Inter-Residence Council with a 21-and-over dorm and addi- tional co-ed living facilities. CAPs raised the price of a concert ticket and lowered the number of concerts, presenting the Romantics Nov. 10. With policy changes and new proposals, students were once again wondering what was next.

Winning another Homecoming Supremacy trophy, brought their total to 10 received in the last 11 years. " Our time was cut short with Homecoming so early, " Mary McMichael said. " We worked three days a week and weekends on a three hour rotation basis. Under pressure everyone got their job done. " Homecoming brought more shouts of pride from the group as President Laurie Von Stein was crowned Homecoming Queen. " The anticipation in itself and just being a part of it all was really exciting, " Von Stein said. " But when my name was announced and all the Phi Mu ' s ran up to me afterwards and started singing, it felt like a dream come true. " Phi Mu also celebrated its 25th An- niversary on the Northwest campus. With spring semester and the end of an all-sorority probation came the return of social events such as mas- querade, informal, luau and mixers. Spring also saw other annual events such as the KDLX-Phi Mu swim-a-thon for the American Cancer Society, an Easter egg hunt for Head Start children and participation in Special Olympics. The only sorority on campus with an internal philanthropy gave the Sigma Sigma Sigma girls added incentive to raise funds for their Robby Page Children ' s Memorial. The girls raised over $300 with a balloon ascension. Each girl sold at least five tickets, which included the buyer ' s name and address. The balloon reported to have gone the furthest won a prize. Another sorority fund raiser was the second annual February snowball tour- nament. " Our snowball tournament was a big success last year, " Vice president Teri Adamson said.

" We were allowed to have only one social function all semester and that was our winter informal, " President Stacy Smith said. The dance was held on campus and was non-alcoholic. The fines incurred also restricted participation in the Homecoming parade. But the Delta Zeta ' s pulled together and turned a bad situation in- to good, putting their efforts into a first place Variety Show skit.

" The proceeds of our annual project went to the Gaulladet School for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, " Fall Presi- dent Lauri Lehane said. There was a positive side to everything and the Delta Zeta ' s found several. One was the overall raise in their sorority GPA. " Our GPA was the highest it had been in a long time, " Stephanie i ' jiShatswell said. ■■orainj An emphasis on academic achieve- ment was an important part of the col- lege experience for Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. The sorority, which has received the scholarship trophy for highest overall GPA for the past 25 years, was proud of their academic record. Besides the scholarship trophy, other notable Alpha achievements in- cluded an award for Outstanding Greek Women ' s Organization, which they captured for the second year in a row, and winning the Greek games during Greek week. The Alphas were also kept busy dur- ing the year with numerous social func- tions. The traditional Christmas formal capped off the fall semester and a Sweetheart Dance on Valentine ' s Day helped get the spring semester off to its start. Other traditional functions the sorority sponsored included date-n- dashes, the Spring Fling and mixers with each fraternity. Members of Alpha Sigma Alpha felt it fit all types of personalities. " What was most special about our sorority was everyone did something different, " Kim Ray said, " and there was always someone to talk to. " A sense of individuality while still maintaining sisterhood, an emphasis on academic success and creating a positive image for Greeks was what the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority was all about.

Deita Chi 7 lia ' ' jm Celebrating a year of honors Voted " Best Greek Organization " of 1985, Delta Chi fraternity had approx- mately 70 members. " Delta Chi ' s didn ' t have one set per- ionality but they were big in irotherhood, " Joe Reynolds said. Working together, Delta Chi ' s spon- iored several service activities. One vhich created interest among students vas the presentation of Candy -ightner. Lightner, mother of twin daughters, one of which was killed by a drunken iriver, founded MADD (Mothers gainst Drunk Driving) in hopes of educing the number of drunken driver elated deaths and injuries. Service activities contributed to win- ning Best Greek Organization for the Delta Chi ' s as well as the President ' s Zup. This award was won through a na- tional competition in which smaller universities competed. Both awards were judged basically on campus and community involvement and leader- ship. Another service activity Delta Chi ' s opened to the community was Home Handyman Week. Seventy Delta Chi ' s spent two hours helping the communi- ty with various chores such as raking leaves, mowing grass and moving fur- niture. Christmas party for Head Start children was another activity involving members. Delta Chi ' s had a delegate in the Maryville Chamber of Commerce which gave Delta Chi ' s involvement in the Chamber also. Community projects helped keep good rapport between Maryville resi- dent and students. " We showed the community that we really cared through the Home Han- dyman program, " Daryl Covell said. The Delta Chi fraternity encouraged social as well as personal growth in its members. " It taught me how to live in the world and how to deal with people, " Vice President Jay De Leonard said. " It taught me things dorm life wouldn ' t. " Part of Delta Chi ' s success lay in the contributions and dedication their lit- tle sisters, Chi Delphians gave. Helping with Delta Chi ' s social and service activities and participating in Delta Chi functions, Chi Delphians sup- ported their brothers. Brotherhood, a Delta Chi trait, could also be found in Chi Delphians. " We were a close-knit group with a lot of friendships, " President Kris Walters said. " We were a family. " Each year Delta Chi ' s chose a Chi Delphian they felt was an overall sweetheart to be named Delta Chi Sweetheart of the year.

" Sig Eps ' awards didn ' t end with academics. They were the recipient of Dthers including the Buchanan Dutstanding Chapter Award and Ex- :elsior Award for significant improve- ment in the chapter and in chapter operations. Although Sigma Phi Epsilon was a jociai fraternity, it was also a caring Dne. In the past, it had been associated with the Special Olympics, Heart Fund, DLX Jock-a-Thon, Maryville Food antry and sponsoring a child. " Since we were a large group, it was so easy to help. Only a little time or money from a Sig Ep went a long way when pooled with his brother ' s time or money, " Eric Johannesman said. Middle summer annually brought brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon, their lit- tle sisters and their alumni together for a weekend of work and fun. The " Duke Party " was their version of the Greek work weekend. " It was a time when everyone came back to work on the house and prepare for the coming semester. It was a great time, " Secretary Mike Kieny said. Sig Eps ' little sister organization, Golden Hearts, was also active both on campus and in the community. Their services included sponsoring an Indian girl, working with Special Olympics and KDLX ' s Jock-a-Thon. " We did our share, but we hoped to do even more in the future, " President Cindy Margis said. Aside from their association with the Sig Eps, Golden Hearts were best known for sponsoring Mud Volleyball. They also played a role in one of Nor- thwest ' s biggest events. Air Rock. " Being a Golden Heart was not only exciting, but it was fulfilling, " Anna Book said. Family ties includeu Diversity. Tiiis not only described the activities Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) participated in, but also described its members. " Our brothers were as diversified as they come, " President Steve Moss said. " We weren ' t concerned whether they were rich or poor, black or white. We wanted to know the individual. " Each member was unique and each contributed to the fraternity. " We got to know each person thoroughly, " David Cox said. " We looked for individuals who possessed those traits that would contribute to our brotherhood. " Through community activities such as a Christmas party for mentally han- dicapped children to an Easter egg hunt for neighborhood children and Community Care Day, TKE ' s found op- portunities to break away from out- dated stereotypes. " Some people thought we were only here to party, " Cox said.

" As a result of this awareness, their national organization awarded the TKE Public Relations Award to the fraterni- ty. " To receive an award from nationals was an honor, " Moss said. Aside from national awards and community involvement, TKE ' s pro- vided each other with an opportunity to grow. " Diversified as we were, " Moss said, " we joined together to become one unified brotherhood. " If diversification described the TKE ' s then unification described the Daughters of Diana. Formed as an aux iliary to aid TKE ' s in many of their functions, the Daughters foun themselves filling in gaps the brothers couldn ' t. " We were there to help them, " Secretary Leanna Cashmere said. " We did what needed to be done. " To some, it appeared all theL Daughters did was work. The members felt otherwise.

Daughters 129 Lending a helping liand While all fraternities were required to participate in community activities, Alpha Kappa Lambda (AKL) men found themselves providing help not only to Maryville citizens but to Missouri. " We did various activities with peo- ple in Maryville, " President Dan Hilliard said. " But we also helped raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) of Missouri. " Involvement in civic and community activities ranged from working iwith members of the Sheltered Workshop to participating in the Little Buddies program. " In the Little Buddies program, we worked with boys who did not have fathers, " Hilliard said. " We gained a sense of responsibility and pride from working with them. " They also worked with disadvantag- ed youth in the Sheltered Workshop. " Some of us were a little scared when we started working with them, " Vice President Tom Paulsen said. " Some had never worked with disad- vantaged youth before and because of that, we had all kinds of misconcep- tions. " We found out, however, that these people had the same likes and dislikes as we did, " Paulsen said. " After awhile you forgot they had handicaps and treated them as anyone else. " However, being involved with the community was not enough. The AKL ' s found themselves actively promoting and participating in their annual MDA Dance-a-thon. " We ' ve been active in this for over 10 years, " Hilliard said. " Our contribu- tion to the state chapter has ranged from $5,000 to $10,000, depending on the year. " " We ' ve been fortunate because it was a worthy cause and people wanted to give, " Paulsen said. " The highlight of our dance last year was the ap- pearance of the Missouri state poster Members of Kalley Filleans, the AKL little sisters, don sunglasses to perform for their brothers during spring smolder. -Photo by K. Scribner child. After we met her, we were so pumped up. " " It was one thing to donate money to a cause, " Hilliard said. " It was a dif- ferent story to meet with them. She really gave us a boost. " Besides their involvement in these programs, the AKL ' s still found time to socialize. " What we gained from being involv- ed in a fraternity is hard to put into words, " Paulsen said. " We learned how to accept people as the y were, help them when they needed it and, most of all, be a member of the family. " " Regardless of what we did or who we did it for, " Hilliard said, " we were a family and we always will be. " Organized as an auxiliary to help the AKL ' s, the Kalley Filleans (Kay Fi ' s) provided extra help in all social and civic duties. " We were there to help out with what they were doing, " Alycia Townsend said. " Whether MDA, Head Start or rush, we were there to lend a hand. " While the Kay Fi ' s provided help toil the fraternity, they also experienced many of the benefits of being involved. " Whatever they did, we were there to help them, " President Shephanie Dishon said. " We gained not only a sense of responsibility, but also a sense of pride because our efforts paid off. " But helping their big brothers wasn ' t all they did. " We were a part of their family, " Vice President Tami Haddox said. " We were there to share the good times as well as the bad. " " They were always there when we needed them, " Hilliard said " Sometimes we needed a different point of view. We could always trust their judgment. " Most members felt belonging was like having a home away from home " They enjoyed being involved as much as we did, " Paulsen said. " They were a great group to be around. They were constantly motivating us and that made all the difference in the world. 130 Org.

With a standing membership of 40, the Delta Sigma Phi men were not as concerned with getting as many members as possible as they were with finding members who could contribute to the fraternity. The Delta Sig ' s were a fraternity that stressed academics. Much emphasis was put on performance in school. " Our fraternity stressed academics more than other fraternities and the fact they were in contention for the highest GPA award proves that, " Gar- vin said. Another quality Delta Sigs took pride in displaying was leadership. " I became more of a leader by being a Delta Sig, " President Joe Ott said. The Delta Sigs began an engineered leadership program.

Like many of the other Greek organizations, the Delta Sigs did some community work. For the March of Dimes, they pushed a wheelbarrel from Maryville to St. Joseph. " About 20 guys got together and walked the 40 miles, " Ott said. " It was really worth it, too, because we raised $800 to donate to the March of Dimes. " Other service work done by the fraternity included raking and mowing lawns in their neighborhood. An Easter egg hunt was also sponsored by Delta Sigs for Head Start children. The social life at the Delta Sigma Phi house was just as lively as at any other fraternity ' s. The annual smoker dance was held at Yesterday ' s with guest speaker Dave Lynn. Two of the most popular parties the Delta Sigs held were the tanning party and the night at the races party. " " The night at the races was especial- ly good because it gave the rushees a better chance to meet the guys, " Gar- vin said. During spring rush some of the social activities consisted of a movies night, a Hawaiian heat party and an " in the dark " party. There was no special formula for choosing the men of Delta Sigma Phi. Men chose the fraternity for a variety of reasons. " 1 felt the Delta Sigs were more open-minded and they told me what the fraternity could do for me and at the same time trusted I could do something for it, " Garvin said. They were all part of a big family. A family which included the Delta Sigma Phi Little Sisters. Ttierela jod little ! VicePresiii ai! stuck to Being P3i special.

Sig Tau ' ■n Breaking their ' animal ' image The fellows of Sigma Tau Gamma spent much of their energy trying to dispel their stereotype of rough and rowdy ' Animal House ' boys. " A lot of people thought we were Maryville ' s answer to National Lam- poon ' s ' Animal House ' , " Todd Scott said. In order to change those ideas, we had to strive together as brothers and prove we could do the job as well as any other fraternity. " " We faced old problems as well as new ones, " Vice President Todd Slagei said. " Our goals were to get more ac- tive in the community, but more im- portantly, the campus. Because of this, we were able to discredit many of the rumors that plagued us the past five to seven years. " Problems arose from rumors being blown out of proportion, but because of involvement in campus activities, the accusations faded. " People, especially women, were ter- rified to come to the house to party, " Slagle said. " By getting our members in organizations, we were able to change those attitudes. " Attitude changes also occurred following civic duty participation. " Most people were surprised to see us working throughout the communi- ty, " Scott said. " It not only helped sway the public opinion of us, but it also gave a boost to our organization. " By sponsoring a haunted house for the Learning Center, the Sig Taus learned how to interact among people of all kinds. " Some of us had never worked with disadvantaged people, let alone with kids, " Scott said. " It was a real eye- opener. " " We won our first battle, " Slagle said. " Because of our strong brotherhood, we ' ll win the war. People have seen the changes we ' ve already undergone and they know we can get things accomplished. " When the Sig Tau ' s wanted to change their image three years ago, their first step was the formation of a little sister organization, the White Roses. " People knew we were serious about changing when we formed the group, " Slagle said. " At first, there was a lot of opposition to them, but we wouldn ' t give them up now for the world. " Established as an auxiliary to help the fraternity, the White Roses helped with rush functions, but also held ac- tivities of their own. " Our primary concern was helping our brothers, " President Leslie Cumm- ings said. " But we did more than just that. We provided a fresh outlook to what was happening. " " It helped to get a different point of view, " Scott said. " We complimented each other so much. It wasn ' t all take. We gave to each other and benefited from doing so. " " Everyone had a job to do, " Cumm- ings said. " Whether she finished it or not, she learned from the experience. " We helped motivate the guys, " Cummings said. " If they couldn ' t reach a group, we did our best to. Working together, we overcame many stereotypes. " We were proud of what we, along with our brothers, have accom- plished, " she said. " Together we were able to change people ' s attitudes. It took a lot of hard work, but it was worth it all. " Sigma Tau Gamma, Ken Agey plays cards in the Spanish Den during lunch hour.

Receiving their national charter on March 25, 1985, the Kappas were the newest addition to the Greek system. " They received input from Tarkio and Kirksville where those fraternities were already established, " Sponsor Richard Flanagan said. " It was good to see their hard work pay off. " Achievement and goal setting were stressed to pledges as well as actives. " We stressed achievement, " said Janssen Mitchell. " We emphasized that hard work and dedication does pay off. " The Kappa ' s work and dedication were evident in community and civic projects. In October, Kappa ' s participated in Community Care Day. In November, they promoted a canned food drive for the needy families in Maryville. During the Miss 10 contest sponsored by Kap- pa Aipha Psi, Sam Mitchell dances with Michelle Johnson.

Spies " With each project we completed, we felt a great sense of accomplish- ment, " Mitchell said. " During those ac- tivities we were brought closer to- gether. " " We found a new brotherhood, " Mit- chell said. " Most friends don ' t know you that well. Here we were able to ex- press what was going on in our heads and all the while knowing that so- meone would always be close at hand. " That brotherhood helped to destroy some of the problems they faced. " People thought we were going to be another fraternity that partied all night long, " Mitchell said. " We showed everyone we were serious about what happened around us and got involved. " This involvement led to successful community programs and a member- ship in the Chamber of Commerce. " We were one of the few fraternities to become active as a whole in the Chamber, " Mitchell said. " We showed Maryville we really cared. " Constantly striving for success. Kap- pa Alpha Psi gave its members a sense of awareness, the strength of achieve- ment and an attitude to make it hap- pen. Their list of alumni proved that to be true. While a new fraternity started a chapter, an already established one underwent some notable changes. The major change for Phi Sigma Ep- silon resulted when two national organizations merged. Phi Sigma Ep- silon became Ph! Sigma Kappa. " As a result of the merger, we ' ve become the third largest fraternity in the nation, " Vice President Todd Purdy said. Because of this, the Phi Sigs felt their organization grew a nd strength- ened. " We ' re a stronger organization, " Jon Northington said.

Kappas 137 Service or social, students learn it sometimes takes A group effort jtcoiintlnj Open to accounting majors only, the Accounting Society offered a wide range of services to the campus, as well as Maryville. " During Accounting Day, we brought in speakers who would be beneficial to any aspect of the business world, " Secretary Andrea Ferguson said. " This gave everyone a chance to talk to those people who were in the working world. " Speakers focused on what to expect when interviewing, as well as working in these firms, " Ferguson said. " They also told us what classes benefited most, which really helped us. " Besides Accounting Day, members also volunteered for VITA. " VITA stood for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, " Vice Presi- dent Rhonda Vonous said. " After pass- ing exams, members volunteered to assist or complete the returns of col- lege students or Maryville citizens. " Members who helped with VITA also helped complete tax forms for people at the Autumn House, senior citizens housing and the Margaret Davison Housing Complex, limited income housing. " 1 learned more about the business and accounting world than books could teach me, " Varnous said. " It helped me realize how 1 could help peo- ple while 1 was still learning. " " The opportunities offered by the Accounting Society proved to be in- valuable, " Varnous said. " Anybody could use the services we provided.

Trunkhill During their first year of existence, the Ag-Business Club presented several guest speakers to their me- mbers. " The speakers enabled students to become aware of the various career op- tions available to students with an ag- business degree, " Maureen Mader said. Besides informative meetings, the club had a barbecue and took field trips within the area. As the head of four other agriculture clubs on campus, the Ag Council was an organization of elected represen- tatives from such groups as Agri- culture, Horticulture, Agronomy and Ag-Business Clubs. " The Ag Council combined the effort of all the different ag organizations to set up the spring banquet and awards ceremony, " Vice President John Rehmieir said. The club also handled ag depart- ment teacher evaluations and spon- sored a barnwarming party. However, their big event was the spr- ing banquet which honored outstan- ding agriculture students and recogniz- ed the most supportive faculty member. " The Ag Club sponsored a lot of ac- tivities, " Sponsor Duane Jewell said. Some activities included Fall Barnwar- ming, a social event for members and alumni, and Jackpot Roping, a roping contest open to other college teams. One of the clubs most popular events was the Little American Royal, a rodeo patterned after the American Royal, but on a smaller scale. Jewell said merchants contributed goods to the event to be used as prizes, such as hats and belts. " It was good advertising for them, " he said. Jewell said the club raised money for projects by selling hams, pizzas and other goods, and through membership dues. " We tried to raise enough to give each member two free tickets to the banquet, " Jewell said. 138 Org. Accountlng Accounting Society members Bryan Brum ind Kevin Frenzel study for the CPA exam.

Members of the organization shared a common concern of interesting children in reading. " One way we interested students was by doing a presentation of Mark Twain ' s books, " Vice President Kirsten Randolph said. " These books were con- sidered the top books in Missouri. " The books were chosen by children|ccoi throughout the state. The organization then presented the books to Horacelifr Mann students, inticing them to readlvo more. But Alpha Beta Alpha wasn ' t just forljular education majors. " We weren ' t just limited to work! in a school library, " Treasurer Cathy Paniamagan said.

" We were a strong organization, " Jill .eonard said. " We did publicity for all he shows. Everyone held their own, )ut we worked together and got a lot iccomplished. " Alpha Psi Omega developed a sum- ner theatre program and produced wo plays. They also produced all three )lays in " A Texas Trilogy " during the eguiar school year. This was the first ime all three shows had been produc- ;d in repertoire by a student organiza- ion. The Alpha Psi Omega Christmas ihow, " Kaleidoscope, " toured seven jchools the week after final exams, ' roceeds from the on-campus perfor- nances of the Christmas show were -cSi » ionated to the Daily Forum fund for ■: :m .a needy families. Alpha Psi Omega was the largest single contributor. " It was a successful show, " Leonard said. " We had good weather so we could travel to all the places. It went over well. " • The organization took responsibility for decorating and equipping the green room, lobby and rehearsal studio of the Performing Arts Center. " We got to vote with the faculty and three other judges on best leads and best supporting roles for each perfor- mance, " Leonard said. " At the end of the year we had a formal awards ban- quet. " The Northwest chapter of Alpha Psi Omega received recognition from the national organization for its activities and services. The group also provided money for freshmen scholarships. To its members. Alpha Tau Alpha was not considered just another social organization. " We were concerned with providing a link to the professional world, " Secretary Tim Huntley said. " We pro- vided a link for those majoring in agricultural education and those who were already teaching. " An honorary for agricultural educa- tion majors. Alpha Tau Alpha gathered information that would be valuable to students in the future. " During April we met for our mid- way conference, " Treasurer Tom Pierce said. " During that time all the student teachers came back and related to us what we could expect. " Because we desired education degrees, we strived for and stressed in- tellectual growth as well as profes- sional growth, " Pierce said. " As teachers, we had to be on top of latest advances in agriculture, but more im- portantly the classroom. " " In this club, we trained each other to be leaders, " Huntley said.

Ambassadors Gnder the Hubbard administration, Student Ambassadors found more responsibility on their shoulders as they strode the sidewalks of campus. " When Dr. Hubbard took over, there was more emphasis put on am- bassadors and their work, " Julie Briggs said. " He looked to us for major recruitment. He also had more contact with us by coming to some of our meetings, writing letters of encourage- ment and inviting us to his house for dinner. " " Ambassadors were a special group, " President Steve Nichols said. " An ambassador was the first impres- sion most seniors got of our school. It took a special kind of person to make that good impression. " Choosing 50 students to represent an entire university was no lightly taken task and called for an extensive selection process. Announcements were placed around campus for any student interested with at least a 2.5 GPA to apply. Informal preview sessions were then set up for present ambassadors to get to know applicants on a one-on-one basis. Chosen applicants were then invited back for formal interviews and a final vote was taken. " They were a valuable organization, especially from the perspective of a student, " Nichols said. " A senior could come and talk to a professor about pro- grams and majors, but talking to students their own age was really beneficial. " Ambassadors were also responsible for working office hours in the Admis- sions office, sending personal letters to possible students, traveling with recruiters and sponsoring Senior Day. The Student Member Section of the American Home Economics Associa- tion (SMS-AHEA) broadened its in- terests to include more state and na- tional activities. Attending workshops was important to the organization. The fall workshop was held in War- rensburg with 10 local members atten- ding. " Face to Face with Your Profes- sion " was the theme. Guest speaker Janet Helm gave members insight in the area of home economics com- munications. " Attending workshops was a great opportunity to hear speakers in our profession, " President Cindy Miner said. The national SMS-AHEA convention was held in Kansas City during spring semester. Members were also involved in the state organization. Both state Presi- dent Penny Helle and Secretary Miner were from the local group. The group also held a study break party during fall semester finals, wat- ched a film on Osteoporosis and made valentines for 107 Maryville Health Care Center residents. Miner felt a great deal could be learned from joining the organization. " Being in SMS-AHEA gave students in home economics a chance to study their profession through involvement locally, statewide and nationally, " Miner said. The American Marketing Associa- tion (AMA) was designed to help students with marketing majors to bet- ter understand their job possibilities and requirements. AMA took several field trips to check operations of certain corpora- tions. During one trip to the University of Missouri at Kansas City, members had a chance to hear representatives from several corporations discuss how their businesses were operated. " We liked to see how a corporation was set up and how it differed with others, " President Pam Gilpin said. Their major event was Marketing Day. " Four speakers from Kansas City came and told us about their corpora- tions, " Gilpin said. " They talked about their own corporations and how we could make a career in marketing or sales. It gave us some one-on-one in- teraction with people who know about different careers. " Student Ambassador Tami Towers gives a tour by the Administration Building to high school students.

To accomplish this, ASPA went on 3urs and had people come in and peak to members. " We toured to see what exactly went n at plants and then we sat down and alked with the management, " John- on said. " We also brought in speakers D talk about how they got the posi- ons they were in and what programs ley had implemented. " Johnson said this way members ould familiarize themselves with dif- ;rent styles and better decide where ley wanted to work after graduation. The biggest project for the Art Club was its art show and sale, sponsored at the end of every semester. The sales consisted of several pro- jects done by art students, mostly ceramics and paintings. " We usually brought in a lot of money at our show and sale, " Carolyn Hensley said. " Most students tried to get involved in it. " Members of the club planned to take a trip to a museum. " Part of the profit from the sale went back into the Art Club, " Hensley said. " We saved quite a bit of money so we could take a trip to a Kansas City museum or someplace like that. " The club also had guest speakers come in and talk to them. " We had guest artists give demonstrations and informal discus- sions, " Hensley said. " Then they usual- ly had a slide show and explained their work. Afterwards, they displayed their work in the gallery for people to see. " The main emphasis for the Associa- tion for Computing Machinery (ACM) was " exchanging ideas, " President Steve Hacker said. ACM met throughout the semester to discuss advancements in the com- puter field. Treasurer Tracy Corl said group members had the opportunity to learn about a variety of computer- related topics. " We talked about artificial in- telligence and computer architecture, which was the internal design of a com- puter, " Corl said. " We had two sem- inars, one on Word-11, a computer language, and one where we taught people about digital command language and how to use it on the VAX. " Hacker said ACM allowed members an opportunity to learn about new computer developments. " The association gave people with the same major a chance to discuss new technology in the computer in- dustry, " he said. ACM members found time to let off some steam with a Mexican Fiesta held at the home of Drs. Gary and Merry McDonald, ACM sponsors, and a lawn party. The group made field trips to Kansas City, to T.W.A., where they observed the corporation ' s use of computers and to Harmon Industries, which used com- puters in the railroad industry. " They (T.W.A. and Harmon In- dustries) hired quite a few people from Northwest, so we wanted to see what they did, " Corl said. The Baptist Student Union (BSU) " helped students to learn more about themselves, others and God, " Cliff Hat- chette said.

Mary Beth Bishop discussed her Hawaiian marine biology study and Dennis Nowatzke discussed his summer Arizona conser- vation internship. " Tri Beta was a way to talk to others with an interest in biology, " President Theresa Kinder said. Collecting $150 for the group, Beta Beta Beta sold plants and books donated by biology professors. Members of Beta Beta Beta must have achieved a 2.7 QPA and a 3.0 biology GPA and have completed at least three biology classes. " At our meetings we talked about re- cent research and classes, " Kinder said. The group planned a tour of Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge and a banquet. Blue Key was an organization made of leaders. " Blue Key was a leadership organiza- tion which recognized student ' s ac- complishments, " Steve Nichols said. They co-sponsored the Tower Dance with CAPs. Blue Key was mainly in charge of the queen election and serv- ed as hosts at the dance. " Since we were a small group, we did not get involved with several campus activities, " Darrell Geib said. " But we were and still are hopeful with increas- ed membership, that we will become more active. " Maryville-the entertainment capital of Northwest Missouri. To some people that would sound a little far-fetched, but to members of the Campus Activity Programnners (CAPs) it was the truth. " We (CAPs) were responsible for the majority of entertainment on campus, " Vice President Michelle Belcher said. " People didn ' t realize that our organization chose everything, " Presi- dent Jim Inman said. " Our problem was that Northwest was a suitcase col- lege. It was hard to get people to par- ticipate if they went home. " Because of this, CAPs underwent major changes. The first of the changes came with the election of officers. The second was public relations. " When we (the new officers) took our offices, we sat down and put our priorities in order, " Inman said. Part of the change came in the form of a new logo, a new look. " Our intent was to plaster the cam- pus with our new logo so we were more exposed to students, " Belcher said. " If we spent $5,000 to promote something and only a few people came, then our program needed to reach more people. " Another way CAPs intended to reach students was through a survey. " We did this in an attempt to find what types of things the majority of students wanted to see, " Inman said. Some of the performers for the mini- concerts were in music: Buddy Rich, The Rave, The Dogs? and The Jacks. Comedian Claire Burger, Ventriloquist Still and Max and Dr. Joyce Brothers also appeared. The main feature was The Romantics who performed at the fall concert. " The Romantics were great, " Jenny Fleming said. " The warm-up band could have been better, otherwise the show was pretty good. " A problem that plagued CAPs during the fall concert and other events was low attendance. Because of that, the spring concert was cancelled. " We decided to save our money and get a well-known band for next fall, " Belcher said. " To compensate, we brought in Bud- dy Rich and Dr. Joyce Brothers, " In- man said. " We felt the diversification would benefit us more. " While CAPs experienced some pro- blems, they continued to provide a wide range of entertainment for students. " After all, " Inman said, " we were the entertainment capital of Northwest Missouri. " The Romantics bass player Mike SItili strums a strong bacl bone for tfie concert Nov. 10, sponsored by CAPs.

Adviser Jean Kenner said the students discussed the future direction of the university regarding the academic reorganization. The group had guest speakers, as well as a variety of other social and learning activities. One of the highlights of the year in- cluded the unique induction ceremony. " At about 5:30 a.m. active members woke the new members and brought them breakfast, " Jennifer Jones said.

Practicing four times a week helped the squad perfect its cheers, tumbling and dancing. The dedication garnered them Excellent and Superior ratings for cheerleading performance at Southern Methodist University last summer. " We were chosen as one of the top eight schools in the dance competion, " Co-captain Jamie Snook said. " The honors we received made all the work worth it. " Besides these honors, Linda Carnes and Bruce Lackey were selected as All- Americans by the National Cheer- leading Association. " Linda and Bruce were always psyching us up, as well as making us want to do better, " Melinda Hanshaw said. " Their enthusiasm helped us work together as a team. " Teamwork helped mold these peo- ple into one group. " We all had to learn how to get along with people, when to criticize and when to compliment each other, " Snooks said. " We weren ' t out there for ourselves, " Hanshaw said. " It was a team effort. " Christ ' s Way Inn gave interested students a chance to discuss their religious beliefs and go on several trips. The group went to the Ozarks, took a skiing trip to Kirksville and worked at Cookson Hill on the Kansas-Oklahoma border. At Cookson Hill, students spent time with residents and helped renovate the environment. The group also par- ticipated in " adopt a grandparent " pro- gram. They made several trips to area nursing homes for visits. The group gave support not only to the communi- ty, but to its own members. " Christ ' s Way Inn gave me spiritual uplifting and insight to everyday oc- curences through a Christian at- mosphere, " Tammie Cain said. Rocking eight hours for leukemia and buying lights for parking lots were just two donations of time and money given by Circle K. Circle K, a Kiwanis sponsored group, concentrated on community and cam- pus service projects. The rock-a-thon for the Leukemia Society raised $400 for the charity. The $1,500 donation for lights for on-campus parking lots and walking areas was made possible through funds raised the previous year. Although Circle K had only 12 members, the group was interested in the quality rather than quantity of members. " 1 got personal satisfaction from helping the people in my community grow, " Co-president Lisa Lentes said. Besides the rock-a-thon, the club helped at basketball and football con- cession stands, sold carnations and sponsored parties for the elderly.

Group effort Discovering what the real data pro- cessing world was like, the Data Pro- cessing Management Association (DPMA) presented guest speakers at their monthly meetings. Northwest graduates, Kyle Creveling and Caria Wasdyke, were two of the more popular speakers during the year. " DPMA was used mainly as a way for us to find out what jobs were going to be like, " Vice president Steve Wood- ward said. The highlight for the group was the popularity of the Computer Expo which they helped set up vending goods. " Since the Expos went over well, we planned to help hold another one, " President Steve Sestak said. The group also sent out newsletters and held picnics. English Honor Society was compos- of English majors and minors who have completed 20 hours of English courses and achieved a 3.0 QPA in those classes. " Our purpose was to provide enrich- ment in the fields of literature and English, " Sponsor Dr. Leiand May said. " Many of our programs were oriented to book reviews, slide presentations on literary England and poets and writers speaking to the group. " The society was affiliated with the national organization Sigma Tau Delta and members could join that group also. A major event for the group was the new member initiation and dinner which was held in the fall. " We basically wanted to enrich study in any literary pursuit, " May said. Sharing in fellowship with the Lord and with friends, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) changed the focus of their weekly meetings. The group concentrated on Bible studies and Christian growth. Kyle Guenther felt this new focus was a positive alteration. " We had a lot of dedicated people sharing with the group which helped form a good core of FCA members, " he said. As a result the attendance at meetings increased. Along with fellowship, the group viewed several films on cults and a concert clip of Keith Green. Another highlight for members was spring and summer conferences at William Jewell College in Liberty. Members went to the conference as huddle leaders of high school FCA groups and par- ticipated in a weekend of fellowship and athletics. Students of FCA also provided their services to Maryville citizens. Com- munity Care Day, the foster parent pro- gram and other community volunteer work were some of the other services.

" We received membership to the Financial Management Association (FMA) and with that, the FMA Honor Society for finance majors, " Sponsor Dr. A. B. Kelly said. The club also took a trip to the Kan- sas City Federal Reserve Bank and Board of Trade. This was funded through dues, bake sales, car washes, T-shirt and button sales. A great deal of practice and dedica- tion was required of members in the Flag Corps. They practiced for two hours Monday through Thursday and extra hours during the weekend for home games. " 1 appreciated the hard work when we received a positive crowd re- sponse, " Judy Scott said. Captains choreographed perfor- mances with the other members ' input.

Finance Club One of the highlights of Flag Corps was being able to perform at other universities. Auditions for the group were held in April and anyone was eligible to try out. The captain invented a routine and prospective members performed in front of judges. Dedicated to the study of aviation, the Flying Bearcat Club was an addi- tion to campus organizations. " The group was formed in the early days of the university, but it died out, " President Ron Hanson said. " We got it going again last year. " Even though Northwest didn ' t offer an aviation degree, the club " opened doors for members if they ever wanted to pursue it later, " Hanson said. Members helped each other with course work and talked about common interests in aviation. Safety seminars with guest speakers were also held at Rankin Airport. Small, but mighty, would best describe Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTCI). With only 10 members, QTCl honored outstanding students majoring or minoring in geography. " GTCI was an International Honorary Geographical Society, " President Dave Davis said. " Worldwide, there were on- ly 40 chapters. " " It was an honor to be part of such an elite society, " Treasurer Andy Dinville said.

This pro- gram allowed the chapter to contact scientists teachers to visit campus and speak on current experiments and trends in geography. " Part of the standard we required of ourselves was to promote knowledge through speakers, " Dinville said. " We maintained our academic level by keeping in constant contact with what was going on. " " We might have been a small group, but we were mighty proud of what we had accomplished, " Davis said. FRONT ROW: Michael Koch, Sherri Grabill. pres.: Jim Turner.

Gamma Tau Epsilon 153 Group effort Trying to unite people in the dorms and get them involved was the purpose behind Perrin Hall Council, Vice Presi- dent Irene Brown said. Activities that helped promote this were the roommate game, Perrin street dance and freshmen initiation in which " big sisters, " those being upper classmen, and " little sisters, " those be- ing freshmen, were grouped for the purpose of aiding with problems freshmen encountered. Money raised through fund raisers promoted unity and involvement, pur- chased items for the dorm or sup- ported activities for the benefit of Per- rin residents. Working towards a " home away from home " atmosphere was the main objective of Miliikan Hall Council. Programming and purchasing items for the hall were means of gaining the residents respect and pride in their new home. Miliikan beach parties promoted this atmosphere by " giving residents a chance to meet other residents, " Vice President Michelle Baker said.

Building morale to create a better living atmosphere for residents were Dieterich Hall Council ' s intentions. " Hall council helped me, as a freshman, meet people through their activities and 1 wanted to do the same for incoming residents, " Vice Presi- dent Steve Rouw said. The traditional campus-wide Hallo- ween dance and dorm-wide tug-of-war competition sponsored by hall council brought much interaction with Dieterich residents, and in turn helped build the morale Dieterich Hall Council worked towards. South Complex Hail Council was essential for resident communication and involvement. " It (Hall Council) let residents ex- press opinions and a voice in hall and campus activities, " Historian Donetta Cooper said. Money raised was used for Homecoming activities such as dances and for purchasing items that would be of use to South Complex. North Complex Hall Council served basically the same function as South Complex. " Hall Council gave everyone in the hall a chance to get together, discuss ideas, plan activities and get ac- quainted with other residents, " Presi- dent George Qurnett said. " It kept the hall together. " North Complex allowed floors to come up with activities while they funded them. These activities ranged from movie nights to pizza parties. 154 Org.

They also began a monthly Student Voice Newsletter and on Feb. 14, held a formal Valentine ' s dance at the Sheraton Hotel in St. Joseph. Some of the Jazz Ensemble ' s major activities were playing for the Nor- thwest Missouri Press Association and going on recruiting tours to area high schools. The group played at six or seven high schools in Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri each semester in hopes of persuading high school band members to come to Northwest. Jazz Ensemble also hosted Jazz Fest, a high school jazz band competi- tion, each spring and drew schools from as far away as Des Moines. " Jazz Fest was a big drawing tool, " Paul Miller said. " The students came to compete, but we also used it to show them our programs and facilities. " Promotions and hard work were words that described KDLX staffers. The student operated and managed station provided hands on training for working in a radio station at all capacities, whether it was commercial production, sales, news or sports.

" When we heard our major was canceled we had a choice, either cram in the hours or transfer, " Secretary Barb Hoaglund said. " Anxiety levels for our group were at an all-time high Cancellation of this major not only hurt us, but the community as well. " Lost was the free screening week held in conjunction with Mational Speech and Hearing Week.

Hectic schedules and sleepless nights could easily have developed in- to excuses of being too busy or too tired to attend church services. " Newman Center tried to tie religion in their (students) lives while away from home, " Kent Schreiner said. A variety of activities were offered such as special occasion parties, din- ners and movie nights in order to keep students in touch with their faith. During the summit talks between President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, Newman Center held a prayer service at the Bell Tower in which students prayed for peace. " We ' d like to consider ourselves more as an organization working with peace and social issues, " Father Tom Hawkins said. Films on nuclear war were shown by Newman Center and a nuclear freeze petition was circulated around to students which was later sent to Reagan. Omicron Delta Epsilon was an organization which provided more recognition than active involvement, but it did " provide an opportunity to in- teract with other economic majors and minors and faculty members, " Presi- dent Steve Nichols said. Omicron Delta Epsilon ' s principle activity was providing a speaker once a semester who was someone related to the economics field who could give in- sight on this topic of interest.

" To most people, we were just another honorary, " Teri Fief said, " and because we were for history, we were thought to be dull and uninteresting. But through our programs we were able to displace that idea. " Programs ranged from a fall picnic for the history department to a Taste of History Day. " In the Taste of History Day, students from each history class prepared a food that represented that class, " Fief said. " Not only did students get exposed to different cultures; they also learned about the class as well. " Programming was only one segment of Phi Alpha Theta ' s involvement. It also actively participated in the state and national honorary. " During the state convention, we were able to present papers we had worked on, " Allen Tatman said. While checking out his Civil War rifle, Jim Brizendine discusses other memorabilia of the era he has collected.

Programming ranged from guest speakers from various local businesses to tours of large corporations in Omaha and Kansas City. " Our speakers helped us mold our ideas of what it was like in the real world, " President Beth Crandall said. " We tried to bring those speakers which would help us the most. " Besides gaining insight into the real world, members were exposed to areas in which they never had thought of working. " Because we were open to any business major, we could help those who were undecided as to what area to go in, " Treasurer Pete Gose said. " We provided the opportunity to make con- tacts in the real world. " " We stressed professionalism, Cran- dall said. " We learned what was ex- pected of us and what to expect on the job. " Anyone interested in keeping up to date with what was current in politics was eligible to join the Political Science Club. " Because we were open to anyone, those who expressed an interest or wanted to be actively involved in politics were welcome, " Treasurer Art Miller said. " We kept everyone abreast of the current trends in politics. " Besides keeping members on top of current policies, members were able to express and share their views. " It was interesting to hear each other ' s comments, " Secretary Julie Manes said. " Everyone there voi ced their opinion and was willing to sup- port it if need be. " Getting together with people whose interests were similar was just one pur- pose of the group. " We encouraged people to join, " Manes said. " They didn ' t need to be an expert in the field of politics, as long as they were concerned with what was happening around them, they were welcome. " The Pre-Med Club was designed to assist any student studying for a health profession. " Our basic purpose was to help pre- professional students get into the pro- fessional school of their choice, " Treasurer Joe McMillen said.

Bruce Winston, Bob Henry and Rollie Staldman were speakers who gave talks about the public relations fields. " Through guest speakers we achiev- ed two main things, " President Bob Lewis said. " First, we received contact with someone in the public relations field. Second, we found out what re- quirements were needed to do a par- ticular job. " PRSSA also tried to give its members opportunities to work in their career choices. " Instead of just telling our members about their majors through speakers, we tried to give them an opportunity to work in the areas of which they will be trying to pursue as a career, " Stephanie Carter said. With projects such as the canned food drive, PRSSA tried to improve relationships with the community. " PRSSA was the club that could br- ing attitudes and ideas closer to those of the University and create better rela- tionships between students and the community, " Tom Mihaiko said.

Most people usually thought of par- tying and having a good time. But to members of the 102 River Club, wildlife meant the preservation and protection of plant and animal life. " All we required was an interest in wildlife and the great outdoors, " Vice President Jeff Andrews said. " We were concerned with what was affecting our environment. " Because of this environmental con- cern, members volunteered time to work at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge near Mound City, during fall and spring migrations. " We worked in the Visitor ' s Center, Secretary Carolyn Winston said. " We provided people with information, answered questions and worked in con- junction with refuge personnel. " Besides volunteer service, River Club members kept the public inform- ed with public speakers and seminars. " Our programs ranged from whaling expeditions to conservation techni- ques, " Andrews said. " Our main con- cern was providing people with an up- to-date view of what was happening in the environment and how and what we needed to do to keep it alive. " Anyone who witnessed a football, baseball or basketball game saw the ROTC Color Guard. " At games, we wore our Class A dress uniforms and four of us marched onto the field in formation to present the colors, " Commanding Officer Jeff Rutledge said. Rutledge said the Color Guard was a voluntary program. He said many peo- ple may not have realized it, but the Guard was open to civilians as well as ROTC members, with no obligation to join the military. Color Guard members could earn ribbons and pins based on participa- tion and performance. Rutledge said this made participants proud to be part of Color Guard. " Rangers Lead the Way " was the motto many students chose to follow as part of an exclusive group called the « Rangers. Rangers were an ROTC af- -oad J filiated group but was open to anyone . interested. Students did not have to be nea a in ROTC to be a Ranger and there was alis J no obligation for participating, as this J , also seemed to be a major misconcep- I ' J ' tion of the Rangers. ' . . Rangers were an active group and )PJIS " engaged in many physical activities. Iiews. ' un The highlight of these activities was the survival escape and evasion weekend. Other Ranger activities consisted of a rappelling demonstration off Colden Hall on Parent ' s Day, annual turkey shoot and a Homecoming jalopy entry. Ranger members gained a sense of satisfaction within themselves and in- creased self-confidence.

" At the fall National Convention, delegates voted to allow freshmen and non-majors to join SPJ SDX. " Allowing freshmen to join gave them a chance to become involved sooner, " Johnson said.

With about 10 produc- tions per semester, no production was more important than another. The group tried to stress that each produc- tion was equal and all were highlights of the semester. One project of the University Players was their participation at Worlds of Fun. " About 30 of us went to Kansas City and worked, " Tom McLaughlin said. The University Players were active every week, every month and every semester. Their production of such plays as " Carousel, " " When You Com- ing Back, Red Ryder? " and one act plays required extra time and effort by members. " The important thing about Universi- ty Players was they were trying to bring entertainment and cultural values to the campus and community, " Schultz said. " Basically what University Players were saying was that we couldn ' t do the productions without students, not just faculty and staff but a student body that was not all theater majors, " Presi- dent Jerry Browning said. The Weight Club was open to athletes or anyone interested in physical fitness through weightlifting. The club promoted weightlifting and gave members a chance to keep in shape. A number of athletes used the weights and took advantage of the op- portunity to increase muscle size and decrease body fat. The weight system was located in the basement of Horace Mann Gym and was frequently noted by members as a better facility than that which the University provided. Members com- peted in body building contests and power meets. It varied from member to member as to what they all got out of weightlifting. Some did it to keep in shape, build muscles or for enjoyment. " I wanted to build my body t o the point where I was capable of com- peting in a body building contest, " Roger Idas said. Though affiliated with the United Methodist Church, students of all religions were welcome at Wesley Stu- dent Center. It was a place to relax, grow closer to God, make friends and have fun. " Wesley was designed to make col- lege a little easier for everybody, " peer minister Gail Swaney said. " It was a group effort. We supported each other. It was a place to get away. " Wesley members participated in many activities throughout the year. They went on retreats, held birthday parties for Maryville health care residents and had Celebration teams give services in other churches. They also participated in painting houses for Community Care Day. This day was designed to bring the com- munity together to help elderly and w income residents in town. Wesley held several activities just for fun. " We did a lot of fun things, too, like our Sunday night suppers, " Swaney said. " Usually if it was nice out we played volleyball before we ate. Our annual canoe trip was always a big event too. " Students gather at Wesley Center for various events during the week. Rick Jenkins takes part in the Wednesday night midweek worship. -Photo by R.

Trunkhill 1 80 Features featme4 Students realized earning more credit hours and progress- ing up the academic ladder did not end the challenges they faced. Each year brought new subjects, problems and adapta- tions into their lives and schedules. Why students chose to attend Northwest was as varied in reason as their solutions to how to adjust to Maryville lifestyles. They learned a style all their own. Learned how to skip class, dress for near-arctic weather and locate classrooms in Colden Hall. Others sought ways to cope. Cope with the peer pressure, single parenthood or anxieties. Students quickly discovered college was full of definite ups and downs. And just as the northern weather changes, students found it hard to anticipate what challenges they would face next. Inside Scoop Campus Visiting their hallways frequently, most students probably never realized the history and stories behind the buildings they entered. page 176 Relationships After almost two decades at home, some students found themselves out on their own and relationships on the homefront changing. page 186 Features 181 lo2 Adapting Adapting to the ' Ville _ Home a way from ho me Shocked. Students who came from large cities and distant states to Maryvilie found drastic changes occured in their lifestyles. They looked for towering skyscrapers, only to find seven-story dorms, hunted for sandy beaches and vast oceans, only to find Millikan Beach, sought the Pal- ladium, only to find The Palms, searched for miles of department stores and office buildings, only to find acres of cornfields. Finding things to do in Maryvilie was hard at first for Rick Pratt, having lived in Chicago, New Jersey, Maryland and North Caro- lina. Pratt came to Maryvilie because his father grad- uated from here. " The pace of life was slow in comparison to other places I lived, " Pratt said. " I love it here though. I ' m in graduate school and have been here five years. " Several students found pace of life in Maryvilie slow, especially after dark. " There was hardly a party life at all, and there weren ' t any fancy restaurants to wine and dine women, " Mar- cus Potter said. " What really bothered me was everything closed so early. " Kenny Wysinger missed several aspects of his hometown in Illinois. " Where were all the tall buildings, discos, shopping malls, skating rinks and a clear radio station? " Wys- inger said. Coming from a city in Connecticut about 40 miles from New York, Mia Heissan found most everything in the Midwest different. Heissan came to Missouri because she had six months off before attending Cornell University to play soccer and ice hockey. Her best friend, Elizabeth Hughes, moved from Connecticut to Missouri two years ago and was attending school in the ' Ville so Heissan came here to spend a semester with her. Heissan was most fas- cinated wit h farmers, chew- ing tobbaco and people mar- rying so young. " In the East, after high school everyone goes to col- lege. Here, guys talk about buying some land and girls talk about finding a man to marry, " Heissan said. Adapting to Maryvilie was fairly easy for Heissan, but she found it difficult to get used to traffic laws. " In the East, I would drive 65 mph. 1 could even pass a policeman at that speed and he wouldn ' t do anything about it, " Heissan said. " But, I guess, here 1 can ' t. In my first month here I got eight traffic and four parking tickets costing $375. " Some students who travel- ed to Maryvilie from out of state came because of athletic scholarships. A football player from Hawaii, Junior Mao, said the biggest difference between Maryvilie and Hawaii was the absence of coconut trees and surfing. For Kenny Blanford, Maryvilie lifestyles differed a lot from Florida living. " People around here didn ' t drive fancy cars, " Blanford said. " It was a nice school though. 1 could really get into my books because there weren ' t many distrac- tions, except ' Miami Vice ' which I liked to watch to re- mind me of home. " Most students from out of town agreed the weather in Maryvilie was a major dif- ference from their home- towns. " The weather was always changing. I never knew what to expect from day to day, " Everett Jackson from Miami said. Rhonney Leopold from Texas said adapting to the weather was hard for him also. " If the weather had been all right around here every- thing else would have been, because there wasn ' t a lot to complain about, " Leopold said, " it was a nice campus with nice people. " Most students who were originally from large cities and distant states eventually settled into Maryvilie, adapted to its way of life and finally considered it a good place to call home.

Trunkhill Through history ' s doors People, past kept alive 184 Buildings Most students (with the poss- ible exception of a few freshmen) have pro- bably located the Adminis- tration Building. Many were probably also aware that much of it was destroyed by fire in 1979. But how many knew that the architect who designed the building, J.H. Felt, plac- ed the structure on a north- east-southwest line so each room would have sunshine at some point during the day? The J.W. Jones Student Union was a structure most students were well ac- quainted with. But how many heard it called " The House That Jack Built? " According to Mattie M. Dykes ' 1956 book " Behind- The Birches, " the building was given this nickname because of the " untiring ef- forts " of former president J.W. Jones. Jones ' efforts were rewarded when the structure became ready for use on Oct. 1, 1952 -Jones ' birthday. Many buildings on cam- pus had colorful history. Some had unusual beginn- ings, some were named for unusual people and some had high price tags ($7.4 million B.D. Owens Library). Even so, no where was history more evident than in residence halls. The high-rise dorms were all named for former educators. Two buildings, Roberta and McCracken Hall, were named for students. Roberta Hall, originally known simply as Residence Hall, was named in honor of Roberta Steel. Steel died Nov. 29, 1952, from burns she received when a gas tank exploded and des- troyed the hall. -Although she spent many months in the hospital and eventually returned to Northwest, Steel suffered a relapse and died on her 20th birthday. McCracken Hall was nam- ed for basketball Ail- American " Jumping " Jack McCracken, who played for Northwest during the ' 30s. Other campus buildings had equally interesting histories. Colden Hall, for example, was named for Charles Colden, first presi- dent of the Board of Re- gents. Anyone who walked in the south door of the Ad- ministration Building read Colden ' s words, " And the truth shall make you free. " Gilbert Whitney, a retired professor, said Colden Hall was originally designed to be similar to the Administra- tion Building. " They wanted it to have those distinctive, long hallways which were such an important part of the Ad- ministration Building, " Whitney said. Unfortunately, funds were not available for the plan. Whitney said the hallways in the completed building were considered too narrow for students to get through in case of an emergency. Another building unusual in design was the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building, the only round structure. " There was a big question on placement of the build- ing, " Whitney said. The site of the building was a low, marshy area. The building ' s flat roof caused problems, Whitney said. Water build up caused stresses in the structure, which lead to extensive leak- ing. In their book, " Towers in the Northwest, " Virgil and Dolores Albertini called the decision to name the stad- ium for William Ricken- brode " a fitting tribute to a man who could rightfully be called the first ' Mr. Bearcat, ' for was there ever so avid a Bearcat fan? " Rickenbrode, a former registrar, was awarded the M Club blanket and a life membership in the group in 1956 for his sup- port. Rickenbrode and his wife left $10,000 in scholar- ships to the university. But which campus build- ing had the most history? Whitney said the Admin- istration Building would be his choice. " It was interesting how the building changed its func- tion, " he said. Whitney said at one time the Administra- tion Building, the first building on campus, housed first grade through high school, as well as college students. Whitney said students didn ' t realize how much history the university had. " We haven ' t stressed the historical aspect, " he said. " If students could reach back and touch base with some of the former faculty and history, they ' d be better off. " Knowing the history of the university, the people who worked here and contribu- tions they made, would in- deed seem important for students to know. After all, some may have wondered why there was sunlight in each room of the Ad- ministration Building at some point during the day.O By Kelly Kirkpatrick Northwest ' s history shows through campus buildings.

Trunkhill loo Relationships Dealing with parents Changing relationships Somehow it was never quite the same. Once stud- ents left home for college, their relationships with parents changed. Although students assum- ed various reasons for the changes, independence was a major factor. " I ' d say college helped me become more independent, but my relationship with my parents would have changed even if 1 hadn ' t gone to col- lege, " Scott Hamilton said. " They would have made me stand on my own two feet. " Being treated as an in- dividual was another in- fluence on the parent stu- dent relationship. " My parents treated me as an individual, " Hamilton said. " 1 made my own deci- sions. They didn ' t try to boss me around. They asked me things instead of just telling me. " Many students agreed they were more free to make their own decisions and it was just a matter of whether parents trusted them to do so. " I had a lot more respon- sibility after 1 went to col- lege, " Judi Calhoun said. " 1 had a car and my parents trusted me to decide where to go and where not to go and to decide about drinking and driving. Each year 1 got more freedom. " Calhoun felt being away from her parents forced them to recognize her in- dependence more. " I ' m 19 years old and my brother who lives at home is 21, " Calhoun said. " My parents treated him as if he were younger. It was so much easier for them not to let go of him, because he was so close. " Even though freedom was gained by attending college, several believed the amount of freedom they received after returning home depended on how well they carried themselves before leaving for college. " If 1 wanted freedom when 1 went back home, 1 had to gain my parents ' trust earlier, " Susan Bury said. Not only did the in- dependence factor of parent student relationships change, other factors chang- ed also, such as how well students were able to talk and get along with their parents. " It was different when I went home, " Ron White said. " When 1 went home, they treated me as a kid or a visitor. They were happy to see me, but they didn ' t know me anymore. " College could separate students from their parents in more than just miles. " 1 knew they still cared, " Hamilton said. " But 1 grew away from them. " Other students felt they had grown closer to their parents. " In high school. Dad and 1 fought all the time, just over little things, " Calhoun said. " After 1 went to college, we talked and got along well. 1 think they realized 1 had grown up. " Living away from home sometimes gave students a chance to see things through their parents ' pers pective. " I saw why they did all those things they did to me, " Hamilton said. " 1 could put myself into their shoes and see they did it because they cared. " Even though Hamilton understood his parents ' decisions, many students were left confused and frustrated with their parents ' rules, which they had to abide by while living at home. " At home, my parents ex- pected me to have a curfew, " Sheila Clardy said. Besides having curfews, several students were not allowed freedom to just come and go. They had to check with parents about where they would be and what time they would be home. " It was hard for me, " Beth Ellis said. " When I went home, 1 had all these restric- tions again. " Another adjustment stu- dents faced after returning home was the loss of their own bed or bedroom. Younger siblings claimed the rooms vacated by brothers or sisters, leaving the " visiting student " shar- ing a bed or sleeping on the floor. " 1 had to share my bed with my sister, " Ellis said. " It made me mad because when 1 went home some- body else had moved into my room. " Whether frustrating or rewarding, leaving home provided a challenging outlet to grow up. And students realized their rela- tionships with parents would never quite be the same again. By Stephanie Lockling Debby Kerr Visits from Mom and Dad help brighten the week.

Learning the hard way Freshmen trials and tribulations Freshmen! Every- one complained a- bout them, but no one knew what to do with them. As a senior, I seemed lii e 1 didn ' t like freshmen but that wasn ' t true. The pro- blem most people, including myself, had with freshmen was forgetting we were once freshmen, too. 1 saw freshmen do some stupid things; but as a fresh- man, 1 did dumb things as well. For one, when I first got to Northwest, 1 couldn ' t find the cafeteria, so 1 didn ' t eat for two days. I was too scared to ask anyone for directions. Finally, a kind upperclassman told me 1 looked hungry and took me to eat. The cafeteria seemed to be the place freshmen had the most problems, it never failed. When a new freshman went through the line, they always grabbed the ARA dis- play plate from the counter. Blushes and stammered ap- ologies followed uproarious laughter from others in the cafeteria. Freshmen also had pro- blems, but not for long, un- derstanding their meal plans. Many times I stood in line for a sandwich at the Deli or Snack Bar behind a freshman. He would order a Hoagie, chips. Twinkle and pop or a chicken sandwich and fries; then he would ap- proach the cashier to pay for all the food, realizing he didn ' t have the Ala-Dine r Plan which allowed him to eat in those areas. He had a 20-meal plan instead. It bac- ked up lines and made ever- yone else impatient. However, having dif- ficulties with food systems weren ' t their only problems. Freshmen always made the first day of classes amusing for an upperclassman. 1 could usually spot a fresh- man wandering around Col- den Hall looking for an exit. Granted, Colden can be con- fusing to new people. Fresh- men were likely ones to be lost. I felt sorry for some be- cause they walked around the building with dazed looks. If I tried to approach them to help, immediately terror grasped them and they made tracks away, because 1 was an up- perclassman. During the first day of classes, another way to spot a freshman was to see who carried all their books to classes. Whether they load- ed backpacks or slung books on their hips, freshmen always had every text with them. Okay, so 1 did the same thing as a freshman. I ' m still embarrassed to think I lugg- ed books, notebooks and 50 writing utensils around all day. In yet another way, freshmen were funny. If 1 was sitting in class and bored, 1 looked outside at people walking on sidewalks, carry- ing class schedules. Freshmen were the ones who looked extremely con- fused, but perfectly dressed. They spent three hours get- ting ready for their 8 a.m. class. The rest of the student body looked like they rolled out of bed 10 minutes before class, which was probably true. 1 asked a freshman girl why she dressed up every day for class. " I might meet a cute guy, " she responded. Consequently, 1 wondered if maybe that was my problem in the area of men. Perhaps I needed a new wardrobe? On the other hand, while freshmen girls dressed to impress guys, freshmen guys wore what they did in high school, namely their letterman ' s jacket and class ring. Walking around cam- pus with their letterman ' s jacket on, freshmen guys were easily spotted. The problem was no one cared if they had earned a letter or not. 1 could hear medals clanging together every time a freshman guy walked by. It was like an alarm to tell everyone he was a freshman. I tried to warn a freshman guy once and he said he didn ' t care and clinked away. Freshmen may have had a few quirks in their behavior; but not to worry, they were only freshmen once. Mer- cifully it lasted no more than eight months, at least for most.O By Mary Henry I mqi have had a jlheirtnliavior; (ony.tlieywere » once.

Many peo- ' no " to drinking, peer pressure and found other forms of enter- tainment. Renting VCR ' s and going out to movies or for pizza replaced attending bars to have fun. " I could act just as crazy as they (drinkers) could without being intoxicated, " Lisa Davis said. Another student who didn ' t hesitate to live up to his values was Tom Leith. A non-drinker, Leith said he never needed alcohol to have a good time. " I ' d see people getting drunk, and was glad 1 didn ' t have to. " Different reasons domi- nated decisions for not drinking. For example, in- cidences of alcohol-related accidents influenced several non-drinkers. " A friend and an older buddy were killed by a drunk To drink or not to drink? This and many other pressuring ques- tions are asked of first year college students as they begin to make decisions away from home. -Photo by T. Cape driver, " Phil Zurilla said. It got to the point where stricter laws were passed, li- quor licenses weren ' t renew- ed and bars were closed. However, the decision to drink remained an indiv- idual choice. Whatever the reasons peo- ple decided not to drink, peer pressure was evident. " I ' ve had girls walk away and some people ask, ' why do 1 go to parties if 1 don ' t drink? " ' Mark Pyatt said. Another problem was " not even being invited to the parties, " Dotti Thompson said. One way to cope with peer pressure, Leith said, was to avoid persistent people who wanted someone to drink with. " When people got drunk, they became insis- tant, and I just had to walk away, " he said. Walking away became more widely accepted and peer pressure was usually handled more positively. " 1 didn ' t give into peer pressure easily, " Davis said. " I wasn ' t one to follow the crowd. " The pressure tended to stray away from those who held their own and focused more on those who could be caught up in it. Handling the peer pressure brought many advantages. " I saved money, didn ' t become fat and didn ' t act stupid, " Donnetta Cooper said. " 1 always remembered what 1 did and 1 knew that I had a safe way home if 1 went somewhere, " T.hompson said. Students found they were faced with many challenges during college life, one of these was a decision on drinking. Some buckled under peer pressures, but others triumphantly stood up for what they felt was right. By Debby Kerr Lisa Helzer ir iw l IJc By Dtbby Ken LiM HelzH .•■««s; , ' A ' for abstinance Not all classwork was done in an academic environment. In fact, many " lucky " fellows did homework at The Palms. Dr. Qus Rischer, chairman of psychology, believed peer pressure was a strong in- fluence for people to begin and continue to drink. Through surveys and experiments conducted in Rischer ' s class, students dealt first-hand with peer pressure. Students, who were known drinkers, volunteered to abstain from alcohol for six weeks. Although this sounded relatively easy, students were also required to attend parties, bars or other socializing activities, but not tell friends or family they were in- volved in a class experiment. Rischer noted during one semester when three students conducted this experiment, all were amazed at how much peer pressure intruded on their lives. With five choices for a graded class pro- ject, Phil Kenkel chose the alcohol experi- ment, thinking it would be easiest. " In the end the experiment was hardest. I wasn ' t prepared for what it involved, " he said. In the beginning, his friends kidded and joked about why he wasn ' t drinking with them. Then they began looking at Kenkel not drinking as their problem. One guy kept constantly bothering him to drink, Kenkel said. At one point a friend of- fered him money. However, in context with the experiment, Kenkel didn ' t take it. After the experiment, Kenkel said he con- trolled his drinking, instead of drinking con- trolling him. Maybe homework was more easily done in the library. By Lisa Helzer Though some prefer to say " no " to drinking, they are often forced into a pressure situation. -Photo by S. Trunkhil!

" We planned to do more besides free pop and faster service. As for what, we weren ' t sure. " Pizza Hut began deliver- ing during the year and found tough competition.

When new businesses ar- rived, everyone seemed to give them a try. " Everyone tried the new businesses, but we had our customers back, " said Earl Brown, Pagliais ' owner said. " We won them back with our price, quality, fast and friendly service. " The reason. Brown said, for business slowing down was " because of Itza pizza on campus. " Itza pizza was gaining at- tention because of price and 1G NORTHWESfi STATE W • availability. ' ' " 1 ate pizza at the deli, because I didn ' t have the ex- tra money to order carry-out pizza, " Rhonda Hall said. Cost was important when choosing a pizza. " We had the lowest priced pizza in town and it was the biggest, " said Don Pinkston, cash and catering manager. Dominos was the newest establishment who tried its best to gain and keep customers. Their pizza prices were a main factor in accomplishing that goal. " I liked Dominos ' delivery service because they were fast. ..and cheaper, " Carmen Johnson said. Dominos felt they had three reasons for gaining customers. " Three basic things going for us were product, service and price, " Owner Kevin Tedford said. " Plus we guar- anteed delivery in 30 min- utes. " Pizza gimmicks worked or at least enticed buyers. But, when it came to the bottom line, what counted was per- sonal preference.

Trunkhill Color speaks louder than words Red is the color of ac- tion, love and a yearning for the impulsive life. You are iii ely to be outspoken, athletic and fickle. Do you have a quick temper and rely on first impressions? Yellow means you are probably intellectual with a controlled temper and stubborn opinions. You en- joy flattery and offer sensi- ble advice. Blue is a sign of a capable, conservative and sensitive person. You are resourceful and responsi- ble, but find it hard to release emotions. Do you find yourself being too serious and stubborn? Green favorites tend to be friendly in nature with a defined social life. They may seem to indulge too much, but take part in community affairs. They tend to gossip and look for people with similar characteristics. Orange may find you friendly, cheerful and able to get along well with peo- ple. Do you hate to be alone? You tend to yearn for a warm and mellow at- mosphere. Brown means you are probably conscientious, steady and follow a budget. People find you dependable, but you seldom exert yourself in the area of friendship. Purple lovers are artists at heart who like to im- press people. You like to be surrounded by talented people, but don ' t go out of your way for them. Blue-green tends to at- tract sensitive people with excellent taste. You may be emotionally cold closed and a bit self-centered. You are independent, yet yearn for love and adoration. Pink is the favorite of af- fectionate and cheerful people, but not to im- pulsive extremes. The joyful and easygoing life is best suited for you with a longing for comforts. 1 96 Personality Plus You ' ve got personality Revealing your true self Impressions of pers- onality could be obtained witiiout ut- Itering a single syllable. P Personality could be ijenhanced through hand- f ' writing, bumper stickers, nicknames and some even believed astrological signs brought out personality traits. One of the most pro- 1 minant ways to introduce a| personality was individual J color choice. w Color reflected many jkHthings about a personality. ■H " lf they wore bright colors Wthey were happy, cheerful ] and outgoing, " Nancy Re- H naud said. " Dark colors 1 meant they were quiet, 1 down- to-earth people, while H pastels were outgoing as 1 well as quiet and sensitive. " H Bright colors were very W ' popular choices. " My favorite color was red, " Joyce McKenna said. " I lik- ed to be noticed and stand out in a crowd. " Red was a favorite among many students. " I liked red, " Diane Moore said, " it was bright, bold and indepen- dent. It said one thing -solid. It didn ' t have a lot of varia- tions. Wearing red said I was in a really good mood, ready to socialize and do things. When I wore brown I didn ' t want to be talked to. Pink was feminine and blue, just average, " she said. Colors could mean a variety of things to different people. " Blue said 1 was open and could accept things for what they were, open to new ideas, " Renaud said. " It also said people could talk to me easily. " Clothes were also a way to manifest individuality. " Clothes reflected a per- sonality, how they felt about themselves and their mood, " Renaud said. Furthermore, the type of clothing worn could disclose different characteristics. " Sweatshirts said I was com- fortable and easygoing, " Moore said. To some students the way people dressed reflected their personality, but, some students felt clothes weren ' t an important reflection. " Clothes didn ' t say anything about a person, " Carol Adams said. People dressed to conform. " Clothes may have or may not have exposed personali- ty, but " clothes reflected how they wanted people to see them, " Moore said. Eyesight was not the only channel or sense used to determine personality. The sense of hearing was an im- portant passageway to understanding someone ' s personality. Music disclosed an abun- dance of information about attitudes and feelings. " 1 lik- ed rock, but not hard rock, " Karen Childers said. " Music said a lot about my attitudes and feelings. " Usually music revealed something a student was go- ing through. " I liked the meanings relating to my life, " Adams said. In addition, music ref- lected the individuality of students. " I liked country music, " Renaud said. " I was quiet and didn ' t need loud music to have a good time. I liked to mellow out. " Even though color, clothes and music reflected part of a personality during a first impression, many times people didn ' t rely on those first impressions. " I didn ' t think first impres- sions were important, it was too easy to get the wrong idea, " Adams said. " I judged by the look in their eyes. The way they talked or expressed themself was important; see- ing them react to various situations really told their personality. " Sometimes it took mak- ing a mistake about so- meone to stop paying atten- tion to first impressions. " First impressions weren ' t important because I have thought differently about people, then we became good friends and I found out we had a lot in common, " Jennifer Bodenhausen said. However, some students did rely on first impressions of a personality. " First im- pressions were important, at least, 1 always remember them, " Amy Larson said. Other things reflected your personality. Make-up, posters, license plates or possibly even placement in the family influenced per- sonalities. So remember, the next time you meet someone-even the way you smile or hold your head can give personality away! " Their smile reflected per- sonality the most, " Moore said.

Hopper Personality Plus 197 l9o Procrastination Putting it off today And maybe again tomorrow Maybe it should have been cons- idered an art but it was at least the kind of art everyone could develop almost to perfection, teacher or student, in all areas of study. Procrastination. Many considered it an evil of idleness, but others con- sidered it a way of life. " Most definitely, " " pos- itively, " " oh yes " and " you bet. " We found it was almost unanimous that yes, even Northwest students fell into the procrastination trap. " I procrastinated to avoid doing things I didn ' t want to do, " Janet Schieber said. " I never procrastinated at work, It was too important- just with more menial tasks and homework. " Procrastination of studies seemed to be a vice most students fell prey to. " I ' m the worst about put- ting off research papers and group projects, " Pam Davis said. " But without the pressure it put on me, 1 would never have gotten it done. I would have gotten the same grade either way. " But some students felt waiting until the very last minute was hazardous to the final outcome-that grade printed clearly on the top margin. " 1 would have done a much better job if 1 had done things earlier and paced myself, " Jacque Hoppers said. " When 1 had to do something was when I was at my best, " Jeri Johnson said. " 1 always did my daily assignments right away; the rest I managed to get done before the test. " Tests were usually the in- centive to get things rolling again once procrastination hit, but other factors seemed to come into play also. " My roommates and friends would make me feel guilty, " Jennifer Shemwell said. " I always knew it had to be done, but still blew it off to the last possible moment. I always told myself 1 could do it later, if it was an easy class. Or I felt dumb if it was a subject 1 didn ' t unders- tand, so 1 put if off as long as 1 could. " Others put the guilt on themselves. " Sometimes I just got tired of being unorganized and wanted things in their place, " Schieber said. Bad grades and failing slips were other incentives to crack open those dusty books and turn off the TV. But was there ever a cure in sight? " 1 got a temporary cure from plain self-motivation, " Bill Williams said. Others felt planning was the definite key to no more all-nighters. " I had to make out schedules and really got upset with myself if I didn ' t follow them, " Jill Haning said. " When I was a freshman, I read every chapter assigned. 1 had no social life, but 1 had a 4.0 QPA. Maybe if we didn ' t have a TV I would have done better. " Excuses. Those were always plentiful, and reasonably believable, for those skilled at the art of procrastination. " 1 felt my social life and friends were more important than constant studying, " Johnson said. " 1 just couldn ' t do it without the deadlines that putting it off until the last minute created, " Davis said. Of course there was always the infamous, " Why do it today when you can put it off until tomorrow, " Williams said. But then when tomorrow finally arrived, there was laundry to do, dishes to wash, the dog to walk, that room to clean. ..and the books somehow remained on the shelf a little longer.

Cape 200 Weather Mother Nature and me Students battle the elements Due to geographic- al location, North- west was subject to all types of weather. Students never knew what to expect from day to day, and most preferred one weather type over another. " On cold snowy days, I wanted to stay in bed, " Brian Norman said. " I was on the sixth floor and 1 looked down and saw people fighting against the wind. 1 wondered if it was worth it to go to class. " Some teachers felt the weather had an effect on students ' classroom beha- vior. " I loved to teach during the winter, " Dr. Diane Gor- cyca said, " especially during a big snow storm. The students all came in ex- hilarated. Once they got to class it was like they had braved the elements, so they loved to be there.

" 1 liked quiet sprinkling rain, not the pour- ing down rain with thunder. 1 liked it because I could go out and splash around and 1 didn ' t have to worry about doing my hair because 1 knew it was going to get wet anyway. " Rainy weather limited out- side activities. " 1 liked the rain, " Dana Derry said. " When it was raining, I didn ' t mind going and sitting in class because I knew 1 couldn ' t do anything else outside. " Of course, most students were partial to warm and sunny conditions. " When it was sunny and warm 1 still didn ' t want to go to class, " DeeDee Cox said. " But I went to class anyway, because then I could get out and walk around in the nice weather. " Along with warm weather came a pleasant change of scenery. " I liked it when it was warm and sunny, but not too bright, " Lori Thompson said. " 1 wanted to see men in shorts and tank tops. " The weather in the Midwest was ever-changing and unpredictable. " It was a burden on students because they had to have their whole wardrobes here, " John Bryant said. " One day I would wear a winter coat and the next day I wore a short sleeve shirt with. " Students who weren ' t ac- customed to weather in the Midwest (or United States for that matter) had difficul- ty predicting the weather. " Back in London 1 knew what to expect from day to day, but here 1 can never tell what ' s going to happen, " Roger Bassi said.

Abrahamson 202 People PeofiSe Throughout the year students wondered what was going to happen next. They questioned the new policies the ad- ministration made and the proposals recommended by various committees. Individual personalities were seen in over 5,000 faces. Ex- pressions of happiness, frustration, anxiety and relief decorated halls and sidewalks. Students arrived from as far as Japan and as nearby as Conception Junction. They were as unique as their preference in music and their cars kept in the crowded parking lots. But they were all alike in at least one way. They were all students on campus. Perhaps the biggest adjustment came in their social lives. The crackdown by Maryville Public Safety caused campus awareness of alcohol. This put a damper on night life around the ' Ville and had students wondering what would happen next.

Sharon Ross said there were many jadvantages to working together. [Sharon worked in the speech depart- lent and her husband, Theophil, in hheatre. We were within walking listance, " Sharon said, " and that as a major advantage. " Sharon said it was enjoyable to A ' ork on a common ground with her nusband. " We shared our ideas with each Dther, " she said. " If something work- ed well for one of us, like teaching techniques, we discussed it. " Drs. Bob and Betty Bush worked at Northwest together for eight years. They felt there were positive and negative sides. " There was a tendency to talk about the same topics. " Bob said. " If it was a pressing topic, it could be good or bad. I had some empathy for the situation. If we had worked in a totally different environment, we might not have any understanding at all. " " Our life centered around the in- stitution, so of course we discussed it a lot, " Betty said. Bob said their relationship was nice because they had two perspec- tives on issues relating to the univer- sity: administration and faculty. Working for two different areas of the school kept them more open- minded to problems affecting them. Betty said there were many times when they joked about problems between them. " There were always the fun times when, as a faculty person I ' d say, ' Why did the administration do this? ' and as an administrator he ' d say, ' Well, why did the faculty do that? ' , " Betty said. Working together in the math department since 1970, Dr. AAorton and Mrs. Jean Kenner were another couple on campus. Just because two people married and worked together, though, didn ' t mean they thought and acted alike. " An error many people made was in predicting two people who were married and in the same area (of work), were going to react, respond, support and oppose everything iden- tically, " Morton said. " That was in- deed not the case. " Because of the great deal of time spent with students and other facul- ty, there might have been a need for more privacy at home, Morton said, even though they had separate studies in their house. Teaching for a university was a bit like being involved in a little com- munity aside from the town one liv- ed in, Morton said. " When you opted for a university life, and if a spouse wasn ' t in it, the spouse was partially outside of what was your whole life, including com- mitments, identifications and everything, " Morton said. Though there were both advan- tages and disadvantages to working together at the University, most couples felt they shared more than just a job together. They shared a major part of their life.

He wasn ' t a gypsy; he was business and economics professor, Dr. Robert Brown. Before Brown came to Northwest n 1971, he experienced many hard- ships and challenges that made him ihe person he is today--not only a srofessor, but a caring and concern- ;d counselor. Brown ' s difficult background con- tributed to his concern for people ' s problems. During the Depression, Brown ' s Father, a bridge contractor, li- quidated to seek work in Texas. Brown, his younger brother and parents, traveled through Texas in an automobile for more that two years with only three trunks and a tool box. Brown ' s family became migrant, living in tourist camps. When Brown completed sixth grade, he and his father picked 200 pounds of cotton a day for a dollar ' s learning. ' At the beginning of World War II, Brown ' s financial burdens were replaced with new worries. Con- ijfronted with enlistment in the Navy, he was also faced with the disap- pearance of his father, whom he never saw again until his father ' s death 18 years later. Even though the disappearance of Brown ' s father was an unfortunate incident, the Navy proved to be just the opposite. " Being in the Navy was a good ex- perience, " Brown said. " I learned a lot about people. " After returning from war. Brown was forced into a parental role for his younger brother and worked to provide for his family. This dampered Brown ' s goals. " 1 always wanted to go to college, but just didn ' t have the money, " Brown said. Finally, Brown ' s opportunity to gain an education came. " In 1951, 15 minutes before my Gl bill died, 1 enrolled at Texas A l University, " Brown said. After this decision, many more doors opened for Brown. He became a technical adviser to Ecuador and a visiting professor at the Inter- American University In Puertb Rico. " When I traveled, worked and liv- ed in a foreign country, it broadened my interests and I had a better at- titude towards life, " Brown said. " It made me appreciate my education much more when 1 traveled-it made things more meaningful. " Finally, in 1971, Brown found his way back to the Midwest and ac- cepted a teaching position in Maryville. " Northwest had two things going for it-good students and also the op- portunity to learn a vocation and be educated at the same time, " Brown said. With this in mind, Northwest pro- vided Brown with self-fulfilling employment and in 1972, helped in- troduce him to his wife. Brown has two children. Julie is 11 and Robbie, 8, " who (by atten- ding Horace Mann) were products of Northwest. " In 1978, Brown ' s family of four quickly expanded when he accepted an invitation to be the Delta Zeta sorority faculty sponsor. Brown ' s involvement, concern for people and ability to apply past hardships and meaningful ex- periences to present day situations, built a strong foundation to extend his teaching into honest and sincere advisement.

Operations Mngr. Personality Plus — Reversing the spotlight Sweet smelling tobacco lingered throughout the room; the pipe resid- ed in an elephant-shaped ash tray. In Dr. Charles Schultz ' s office in the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center, the tobacco smell and large collec- tion of ceramic elephants abounded. Dr. S chultz, or Doc, as he was commonly known, was chairman of the theatre department. Schultz said he never thought about being a speech and theatre in- structor when he was younger. " I was always involved in athletics during my high school years, " he said, " and 1 wanted to be a football coach. " " When 1 ran into a couple of the football players and my head touch- ed their belt buckles, 1 decided teaching theatre might be a better idea, " Schultz said. Schultz ' s office walls were cov- ered with pictures from a variety of theatre productions. " I ' ve acted in over 60 plays and directed about the same, and I guess when you add up all of my technical performances as well, I ' d say I ' ve done over 200 plays and musicals, " he said. " One of my more memorable moments was directing ' Our Town ' last year, " Schultz said. " I had directed ' Our Town ' when 1 was younger and my goal was to direct the same play in three stages of my life-young, middle-aged and old. 1 have made it through two stages; that was certainly one of my high- lights. " Schultz was popular with stud- ents. He could almost always be seen with a smile on his face and a mischievous twinkle in his eyes. " He had such a positive personali- ty, " Russ Williams said. " It allowed him to see the best in everyone. He was such an ' up ' person, which made people around him feel a little better when they had a bad day. " Schultz described himself as be- ing a " people person " and always " looking for the good in people. " On the other hand, Schultz also described himself as being very tenacious. " When 1 saw something 1 really wanted, " he said. " 1 was very determined to get it. " Dr. Theophil Ross agreed. " 1 would say Doc was very determined about everything he did, " Ross said. " He wouldn ' t quit at anything. But then again, he was at the same time very much an optimist. He was such a jovial person that it really rubbed off on other people. " Although once having a dream of becoming a football coach, Schultz approached teaching theatre with a positive outlook and his decision became one he would never regret. " If I could do anything in the world, " he said, " I would do exactly what I ' m doing right now. " 0 By Doug Ford " f Optimism always shows through Dr. Charles Schultz.

To this senior from Waverly, Mo., music became a way of life, an enjoyment and an expres- sion of feeling and art. " Music is a very powerful and motivating force in my life and I en- joy performing and writing, " Gilpin said. Composing several songs, Gilpin dreamed he would have one publish- ed. While working at a Northwest summer music camp, Gilpin gained some help in marketing his song, " I Dream Music. " Nashville songwriter Terre McPheeters, a 1977 Northwest graduate, was a clinician at the camp. She gave Gilpin tips on how to submit his song to her publisher. His dream came true when Col- umbia Pictures Publications, one of the largest publishing companies in the nation, accepted " I Dream Music " for publication. After sub- mitting the draft in June, the printed copy was released in December. " It ' s great to have a song publish- ed and it ' s really thrilling to hear and watch others perform it, " Gilpin said. " Greg was an extremely talented young man, " Richard Weymuth said. Weymuth was director of Nor- thwest Celebration and the person who encouraged Gilpin to publish " Celebrate Tonight. " He used the song on the Celebration tour in Florida. " Greg had the unique ability to write performable music. His music was filled with excitement and it should be popular with high school instructors, " he said. The other students in the music department are also supportive of Greg ' s new opportunities. " I have the utmost respect for Greg as a person and a musician, " John Standerford said. " He ' s naturally talented in music, but he works very hard to maintain a high level of professionalism. " Sometimes called Kenny Loggins because of his rugged appearance and his love and flair for music, Gilpin has written many songs for Celebration and University Chorale. In addition, his song " Make My Heart Understand " was made into a video by " The Generic Show. " " 1 always have music running in my head and 1 am inspired by things going on everywhere, " he said. Writing was a joy for Gilpin, but he was relieved and tired when he finally finished a song. " 1 plan to continue writing more music, " Gilpin said. " 1 liked to create a variety of moods. If I wrote one song slow and mellow, the next one would usually be fast and energetic. " Gilpin ' s energy in music wasn ' t only geared toward writing. He en- joyed performing as well. In the fall musical, " Carousel, " Gilpin had the lead role. " I loved it, " he said. " I ' m glad I got the part. The best thing about being in a musical was all the people 1 had the opportunity to work with. " During his four years, he also per- formed with Tower Choir, Celebra- tion Madrigal Singers, Barbershop Quartet and Chorale. He was active in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, Cardinal Key, Kappa Delta Pi and the Music Education National Conference. Long range plans for Gilpin in- clude commercial singing, back-up singing and performing in Nashville, Chicago or Denver. Later, he intends to teach music. " Northwest was a good school to attend to teach music or be a per- former, " Gilpin said. " 1 had the chance to experience teaching and work with talented people.

Dankof, Deborah Computer Science Davies, Diana Home Economics Seniors 215 Personality Plus — Marriage made in McCracken They joined the McCracken Muckrakers while working on the Northwest Missourian their freshmen year. As juniors, they became engaged while editors on the Tower yearbook. Now, Dave and Carole Gleseke don ' t report news of the university, they promote it in the News and Information Office. Dave and Carole came to Nor- thwest to major in journalism in 1977. Although they had the same major, that was about all they had in common. It wasn ' t love at first sight. " We met our very first weekend up here as freshmen, " Carole said. " We both joined the newspaper staff at the same time. So really, that ' s it. It wasn ' t anything spectacular. " Actually, Dave and Carole ' s rela- tionship changed over their years at McCracken. At first, they were just friends. Gaining the label " gopher " his freshman year by being errand boy around McCracken Hall, Dave was also " naive and quiet " according to Carole. This " All-American " reputa- tion stuck with Dave through the re- mainder of his college days. Carole, on the other hand, accor- ding to Dave, " was always the loud, wild one. We were at two extremes. " " We were best friends and it turn- ed into romance at the spur of the moment, " Carole said. Ignoring the surprise of friends and family, Dave and Carole were married. After Dave and Carole ' s relation- ship began, Dave ' s " All-American " image and Carole ' s " rowdy " image found a happy medium. " We kind of mellowed to a middle ground, " Carole said. " Well, 1 mel- lowed; he got worse. " So Dave and Carole Gieseke ' s relationship began at Northwest and came back to Northwest in the News and Information Office. Being an alumnus was a definite advantage Carole saw to her job and helped relate to the students ' points of views. " Dave and I both felt closer to the students than the others in the of- fice, because we went to school here. 1 thought we stuck up for the students ' rights maybe a little more than we would if we hadn ' t gone to school here. " Their interest in journalism brought them to Northwest, but what resulted for Dave and Carole was a life-long commitment, to each other.

After hours of prac- ce, Mincer had visions of playing in as Vegas. Mincer accepted music as a vital lart of his life when he began col- ?ge. While trying to determine his lajor, he took piano classes once gain. Mincer gained several new echniques in those classes. " Before college I couldn ' t read hythms and notes, i played by ear, " e said. With those techniques he also jearned interpretation skills of music. " A piano player has to have the ibility to decipher what the artist in- ended in the original composition, )esides what was written, examples )eing: color, mood, feeling and atmosphere, " Mincer said. Even though those items took time to be developed. Mincer felt he was not pushed. He didn ' t want to rush his talent. " I wanted piano playing to come to me naturally, if it was my major or a job it wouldn ' t be as fun. And I couldn ' t live without it, " he said. Mincer ' s performances ranged from variety shows on campus to county and state fairs. He also played the piano at the Buddy Boswell Union Mill Opry and for KSHB 41--AII Night Live. In those performances, Mincer fashioned many of his routines after famous pianists. Mincer admired many pianists, but his greatest admiration was for Victor Borge. Mincer admired Borge for his routines. Mincer understood that being a good pianist was not everything. Be- ing satisfied with what his own hands could produce was his main emphasis. There were several items that contributed to his satisfaction. " Piano playing is 5 percent in- struction, 40 percent encouraging environment and 55 percent per- sonal determination. A pianist can ' t have one without the others, " Mincer said. " This added up to being satisfied with myself and my music, no matter what the outcome might be. One has to be satisfied with what he does. " Mincer was satisfied with his piano playing, but knew there was still more music to be mastered. Goals for his piano future included making more advancements in skill and performances.

Because of his fascination for history, Tatman participated in a battle scene in Part II of the " North and South " mini-series. Tatman majored in American History and became a resident assis- tant and a member of Delta Sigma Phi. For two summers, Tatman worked at Fort Fetterman Museum in Wyoming as a curator. He lived alone at the museum site, 15 miles from any town. Tatman said the nights were terribly lonely. " Out there at night, it was just me and the sagebrush. It was so quiet, " Tatman said. " Many times my mind would play tricks on me and 1 would start hearing things. It made me aware of how dependent we are on other people. " Civil War recreator Allen Tatman shows how to load his rifle. Tatman participated in Part II of the " North and South " mini-series. -Photo by S. Trunl hill Along with his curator job, Tat- man worked on living history in front of audiences, re-enacting scenes from historical events to educate and entertain people. Tatman began Civil War re- enactments all over Missouri and other states. Then, with about 2,000 other history " re-enacters, " he was hired by Ray Hrbek, a technical con- sultant for Warner Brothers, to per- form a battle scene for the second mini-series " North and South. " At first, Tatman said, everyone was in awe when they saw the more famous actors. But after a couple of days, the actors could just walk around and nobody would even turn his head. Even the director was " down-to-earth " and would ask for feedback from the re-enacters on how a scene should be represented. " This account of the Civil War was the most accurate 1 had ever seen, " Tatman said. " 1 couldn ' t wait to see it all put together. " Tatman wanted to continue doing living history. Some of his other goals included working as a director of interpretation, working for the Department of Interior or teaching history on the college level. Tatman hoped to write a historical narrative book someday. And he may even do a movie again.

Personality Plus— A job of major importance Public relations was not only her major, it was in every aspect of her life. Charlene Johnson, a senior from Maryville, was Head Resident Assistant (R.A.) for Hudson Hall. " Being in my hometown and liv- ing at home while attending college was like going to high school, " Johnson said. " I needed to break away. That was important, and for me, it meant living in the residence halls. People I lived around went home more than I did sometimes. My mom had to call me and say come home to dinner Sunday. ' " Johnson had many duties as head R.A. She was in charge of desk operations, working with the staff through counseling staff members as well as residents and working with the hall director. Handling small daily crises were the best part of being head R.A. for Johnson. " I liked the everyday challenges that were there any time I worked with people, " Johnson said. " There were times when people or situa- tions really changed me. And that was worth more than any amount of Working the switchboard at the Hudson duties as head R.A. Johnson was also active desk is only part of Charlene Johnson ' s in several organizations. -Photo by M. Wilson money I could have gotten, or any recognition or piece of paper. It was something that, until I did it, was hard to appreciate. " But being head R.A. wasn ' t always easy for Johnson. " I didn ' t enjoy dealing with situa- tions that weren ' t easy, " Johnson said. " It was hard when it wasn ' t a matter of looking in a handbook and saying ' this is the way it is. ' Things could become very emotional and people could become very upset. I had to realize each person had their viewpoint and try to work together. " In addition to being Hudson ' s head R.A., Johnson was also presi- dent of Sigma Society, a member of Honor ' s program, part of Cardinal Key ' s social committee and active in Hudson Hall Council and the R.A. Board. " I thought it " was important to have a well-rounded education, and service-type organizations were part of it, " Johnson said. Although she hadn ' t decided whether she was going to go straight into the job market or get her master ' s degree first, Johnson did plan to get her master ' s someday. " I want to be successful in the sense I ' m happy with the goals I set for myself, " Johnson said. " I want to be happy with my life, and 1 hope someday to be working in an area with people. 1 enjoy the personal contact; it ' s a challenge. 1 have a ge- nuine concern for people. " Wherever she went and whatever she did, being Hudson ' s head R.A. gave Charlene Johnson valuable public relations experience.

Dressed as Dorothy Michaels from " Tootsie " in one photo and in the next as a Renais- sance prince; Browning created these characters and more for his singing telegram business, Jerry ' s Jubilee. Browning started his collage of characters while working for a singing telegram business in Kansas City. After the business moved, Browning began his own, with Tootsie as his first devel- oped character. As business flourished, he invested in advertising and business cards to promote himself. He found word-of- mouth the best advertising, however, as his characters became popular in the Kansas City area. Without hesitation. Browning, a speech theater major, said he loved his business and didn ' t consider it work. Instead, he thought of it as an extension of what his career goals were — professional acting. " My business was good exercise for an actor, " he said. " I had to stay in a character, while improvising everything. " Improvising helped Browning act more natural as his characters and on stage. However, for certain characters such as Tootsie and Inspector Clousseu, Browning would use lines from their movies during his 10 to 15- minute skit. The act featured a song written and sung by Browning about funny and embarrassing events of his intended cli- ent. He would even throw whipped- cream pies if requested to do so. " When I dressed up, I could have gotten away with murder, " Browning said. " People always wanted me to do more, even if it was bad. " Time, as well as imagination, was necessary to put together a character. His favorite character, Tootsie, took an hour and a half to do make-up, hair and clothes. He admitted it got to be tiring, but felt it was well worth the ef- fort since he was combining talents of acting and make-up design. Browning said he wanted to contin- ue his enterprise in Maryville, hoping interest would catch on to his unique business. His business of acting and de- signing make-up for campus produc- tions added to his experiece and helped make him a man of many faces. 0 By Lisa Helzer Dressed in one of his many attires, Jerry Browning models a costume from the Renaissanc e era.

During war times families were separated without choice; but Shari Magnussen chose to get married, knowing she would be separated from her husband, Kent, for a year. The couple had dated for over three years and attended Northwest for three years, when Kent went into the Army and was stationed at Fort Carson In Colorado. Shari was going to transfer to a school in Colorado, but it would on- ly accept 60 of her 94 credits. Shari decided to stay at Northwest and marry Kent, knowing she wouldn ' t be going to Colorado with him. " We got married for the same reasons other people got married, " she said. " 1 knew if we didn ' t get married, 1 wouldn ' t have been able to see Kent at all, but as his wife, the Army allowed me to see him. " Shari saw Kent one weekend in September, during Thanksgiving break and fo r a month during Christmas break. Besides that they talked on the phone three to four times a week for about 20 minutes. " The hardest thing for me was not being able to see Kent and talk to him everyday, " she said. " I talked to him a lot, but when you ' re married you ' re supposed to be able to turn around and there he is, and you can talk about every little thing, " she said. Shari and Kent will be reunited after May graduation and will live in Colorado. By Trisha Holmes Long distance was the next best thing for Shari Magnussen.

Sixteen years of dedication, practice and performance, brougiit Sandy na- tional recognition as a professional magician, even before his senior year. Sandy stumbled across his magic skills when he was in first grade. " I needed a class project, so my father showed me how to do a card trick, " he said. " I amazed the other kids and the teacher. From then on, I liked the feeling of amazing people. " As he progressed from that first performance, Sandy, then six, was hired to do a 45-minute show for $5. Since then, his shows have been numerous, and he has performed for varied audiences, including top- name celebrities. When he was 11, Sandy had the chance to perform at the prestigious Magic Castle, an exclusive club in Hollywood for stars such as Johnny Carson. Sandy obtained this oppor- tunity through articles he had writ- ten for a magic magazine. The owner of the magazine. Impressed with Sandy, flew him to Hollywood, invited him to his home and asked him to perform at the Magic Castle. Later, these important contacts led Sandy to entertain at Danny Thomas ' home and an introduction to David Copperfield. Sandy said he developed a friend- ship with Copperfield after working as a creative consultant for Copper- field ' s fourth television special. " 1 was with Copperfield during a summer tour, " Sandy said. " When- ever he was in the area, I would hear from him and maybe have dinner with him. " Another highlight in Sandy ' s career came in 1984 when he did a promotion for the Chrysler corpora- tion. On live stage, Sandy created an illusion by making a Chrysler Laser disappear. He then continued to per- form for many major corporations, although he said he would donate time for special groups such as or- phanages. " The only real magic was seeing audiences have a good time, " Sandy said. " 1 provided an environment that audiences could be happy in. " Sandy said he couldn ' t think of anything he wanted to do more. " I enjoy magic, " he said. " It ' s like a bug. " His greatest inspiration came from Faucett Ross, a magician popular during Vaudeville days. While growing up, Sandy read books about Ross and at 15, visited the elder statesman of magic in St. Joseph. Consequently, Ross took Sandy under his wing, showed him how to be original with his tricks and gave him many props and gadgets. Sandy explained that Ross was revered world-wide for his magic skills and even had the honor of per- forming for English royalty. To honor Ross, Sandy contrived the idea of inviting together many of Ross ' old magic friends. Eventually, the get-together became so large, Sandy decided to turn it into a na- tional magic convention. Held in St. Joseph, the convention attracted world-famous magicians. Sandy acted as executive director, arranging the shows and activities himself. He said he invested a substantial sum, but unfortunately lost some of it. However, many people became aware of Sandy ' s talent and called the event the best magic conven- tion. Sandy said his talent in magic would always come in handy for entertaining corporations or com- panies, even though he didn ' t want to pursue magic as a profession.

In addition to his duties as an R.A., Casillo had to adjust to life in a foreign country. " There weren ' t too many interna- tional students in R.A. positions, " Casillo said. " It gave me a chance to get more involved in college life. " Casillo, an R.A. in Dieterich Hall, was born in Bogota, the capital of Columbia. Being from another country meant he had to get used to the language and culture of the United States. The most difficult adjustment Casillo had to make was learning English. He said he gradually became more comfortable with the language, however, and felt confi- dent when talking to people. " It (language) was really a big pro- blem when I first got here, but I learned a lot, " Casillo said. Casillo also had to adjust to cultural differences between the United States and South America. For example, Columbian people tended to be more conservative than Americans. " Children usually stuck around longer, " he said. " They didn ' t move out of the house until they got mar- ried. In the United States some mov- ed out when they were 17, 18 or even younger. " Casillo ' s unmarried older brother is 25 years old, but still lives with his parents at home. The cooler climate of the United States was another difference. " The temperature in Columbia was about the same all year around, " Casillo said, " so I had to get used to the colder weather. " " There were some similarities bet- ween the two countries though, " Casillo said. Columbia imported most of its cars from the United States, and American movies were popular. Another responsibility Casillo had was being president of the Interna- tional Students Organization. He said he enjoyed working with people from other countries and helping them learn more about the United States. Casillo was also active in the Car- dinal Key Honor Society, the Association of Computer Machinery and Freshman Honor Society. A management data processing and international marketing major, Casillo said the United States was one of the best places to get a com- puter degree. American degrees tended to be accepted more readily than degrees from other countries. Casillo said his family missed him, but felt his education would be an asset. " They missed me, but they knew it was for my good, " he said.

Deciding he wanted the title enough to work hard for it, Mike Keller became World Champion Duck Caller. Keller, a sophomore marketing major from Kansas City, achieved professional status in only three years of duck calling and competed in the World Duck Calling Cham- pionship in Stuttgart, Ark., Nov. 30. " I saw an ad three years ago in the Kansas City Star and thought I ' d try it, " Keller said. " I ' d never done it before and 1 loved duck hunting. " Although enthusiasm was high, Keller wasn ' t successful as he took fifth out of five in his first amateur contest. He continued to compete in amateur contests, revising and im- proving his technique through each one. " Once 1 set my mind to do it, there was no doubt I could do it, " Keller said. " I had to work at it, practice, put the time in and then go for it. " The hard work was paying off, as Keller took second in both his se- cond and third contests. It looked like something big had to happen and it did. The 1983 Missouri Western Open, only his fourth amateur contest, ended in a first place finish. " This contest really meant a lot to me because I had only been calling for a year and it was only my fourth amateur contest, " Keller said. Winning an amateur contest meant Keller had become a profes- sional and was eligible to compete in professional competition. Keller placed third in the annual Missouri State Duck Calling contest and then first in the Eastern Kansas Open. " This contest was really special to me because it meant 1 could com- pete in the World Championships, " Keller said. Keller finished 16th out of 40 at the 1984 World Duck Calling con- test in Arkansas. " 1 made the first cut where they cut down to 19, but 1 didn ' t make the second cut where they cut down to 1 1, " Keller said. The contest consisted of four dif- ferent calls of a minute and a half- each worth 100 points. Another 100 points was then added for overall performance for a grand total of 500 points. " The first call was a Hale call, " Keller said. " 1 stimulated a flock of ducks by giving them a loud call to get their attention. The second call was a feeding call where 1 tried to get the ducks down over the decoys to settle them in shooting range. If I happened to scare them, 1 used the third call which was a come back call. In this call, I begged them to come up. The fourth call was a lonesome hen call where they ' re coming back and 1 tried to settle them down right in front of my decoys. " Keller ' s success as a duck caller not only led to great contest success and personal satisfaction, but also to many financial benefits. " People heard about me, " Keller said. " I ' ve called for hunters in Michigan as well as in other states. This also helped my duck hunting tremendously. " With two world championship contests under his belt, Keller look- ed forward to the 1986 World Cham- pionship. " My eventual goal is to win the world championship three times so 1 will be able to compete in the cham- pion of champion contest held every five years, " Keller said.O By Scott Coffman World Champion Duck Caller, Mike Keller displays his winning duck calls. With his championship came a two and one-half foot trophy adorned with golden-colored ducks, a $1,000 savings bond, a shotgun and even a puppy. Photo by R.

The human blockade backed up traffic for three miles while city officials talked to students in vain. Finally, Student Body President Glenn Acksel convinc- ed demonstrators they should continue on campus. Some students chose to stay where they were and police used a tear gas bomb to convince them to move back to campus. The following day another mass demonstration took place as 1,500 students started on campus and walked slowly toward town. They were met by a fire truck and police trying to edge them back on campus. When the truck unleashed its harmless water weapon at the students, rocks began to fly injuring a fireman and causing other tear gas bombs to be hurled by officers. The resignation the following day of the dietitian remedied the situation. And the two students who had instagated the demonstrations were allowed to take withdrawals instead of being dismissed from campus.

They sawed loose and stole the clapper of the Vic- tory Bell, traditionally the signal for the start of Walkout Day and signifying the end of the freshman pledgeship. They then sent an ultimatum to Student Body President Dale Cramer that the clapper would be returned when the indignities stopped. But the M Club said, " No clapper--no Walkout Day. " Since no student was willing to be responsible for such an action, the clapper was returned. But in revolt, six freshmen kidnapped Cramer and kept him hostage overnight in a deserted farmhouse. Then they locked him in a broom closet at the cour- thouse. Punishment for their efforts (plus one unsuspecting freshman) was done by shaving each head to spell out the word, Bearcat.

When the 1971 Tower Yearbook chose not to in- clude the Greek organizations as part of the book, the Greeks took things in their own hands. Many members of the sororities and fraternities charged the Tower with being " anti-Greek. " They felt the Tower didn ' t represent campus life, and so did many independent organizations whose pictures were also overlooked. Displaying their displeasure at seeing omissions of their student life, 200 students marched to the Presi- dent ' s Home and then to the fountain in front of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. There, many of them initiated their Towers by throwing them Into the water. Several students took a pickup truck containing yearbooks up and down College Avenue and displayed their burning emotions further by nailing the albums to light posts and igniting them. Usually protesters expect some form of punishment, but no disciplinary action was taken against any of the students, a position that was interpreted as a silent nod of affirmation by the administration for the aggrieved students. 4 My nose is clean Mothershead, Harmon 209 Mothershead, Kimbal 99, 162, 163,223 Moulder, Robert 144 Movahed, Lori 245 Mowers, Elizabeth 122 Mozena James 137 Nagle, Jean 170, 171 Nagle, Paula 171 Nakagawa, Yoshinori 176 Nakajima, Seiichiro 211 National Residence Hall Honorary 163 Nichols, Steven 143, 146, 147, 165, 223 Nichols, Whitney 244 Nielsen, Jayne 223 Nielsen, Roger 129 Niemann, Lori 156, 244 Nish, Martin 148, 223 164, O ' Connell, Dennis 131, 156, 244 O ' Connell, Pamela 139, 244 O ' Connor, William 60, 61, 163 O ' Dell, Beth 183, 244 O ' Dell, Nishi 244 O ' Flaherty, Michele 176 O ' Neal, Scott 126 O ' Neill, Jim 57 ORiley, Angela 122, 161 O ' Rourke, Erin 121, 245 O ' Connor, Eric 244 Oats, Ana 245 Oberg, William 158, 245 Odor, Sandra 129, 150, 223 Ogle, Lisa 223 Ohlberg, Linda 245 Oiso, Toshio 158, 179, 211 Okekpe, Patrick 131 Olmedo, Christopher 245 Index 261 Olson, Karen 245 Olson, Rob 43 Oilman, Sara 176 Omicron Delta Epsllon 164 Omuvule, Eromo 245 Organizations 118, 119 Orr, Lorena 156 Ortmeier, Brad 38, 48, 49, 162, 163 Oster, Edward 129, 142, 146, 148, 153, 158, 163, 167, 245 Osweiler, Michelle 245 Ott, Joseph 132, 133, 146 Ottaline, Pete 179 Outdoor Program 164 Owen, Beverly 148 Owens, B.D. 264 Owens, Jeffrey 169, 245 Owens, June 209 Oxford, Noble 131 Padgitt, Dennis 210 Pagliais Pizza 194 Palmisano, Mary 223 Palmquist, Sonya 142, 245 1 have always dreamed of winning a Tony, i just didn ' t thinly I would have to dream through 22 plays to get it.

Owens ran for Stu- dent Senate President in 1958, hie had three National Guard jets buzz the campus to end his campaign. OPhi Sig Larry Timmerman, running for senate in 1961, paddled a canoe from Corning, Iowa down the 102 River. Trying to help a friend campaign, former paratrooper Al Kyle jumped from an airplane to cam- pus and was greeted by a brass band. The opponent, not wanting to be outdone, held a two day marathon on campus. In the 1960 ' s, women were not allowed to wear slacks in the library and men were not allowed open shirt collars at Sunday dinner in the cafeteria. By 1 970 the curfew for women had risen to 1 1 :30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, unless they had written parental permis- sion. Girls living off campus lived only in approved housing and followed the same restrictions. Men had no restrictions. OFor the only time in campus history, 1965 saw the reign of two Homecoming Queen ' s with a tie vote. OThe TKE Homecoming float of 1973 " Chicago ' s Fire, " became an authentic rendition as it caught on fire in the middle of the parade route.

Index 267 Editorial ROW: Dana Trunkhill and staff. FRONT Kempker, Scott Kevin Fullerton. BACK ROW: Laura Widmer, Mancy Meyer, Maryann McWilliams, Karen Doman and Tina Prewltt. Family ties, friendships and fun times Some students, wander- ing around the quads, wandered probably too far and got lost among an in- teresting cast of characters upstairs in McCracken Hall. In November, the editor was found running around with mittens on her feet, cut- ting out Chr istmas decora- tions for office doors and bellowing Christmas songs from every elementary school play she was ever in. On Halloween, the manag- ing editor brought a Christmas tree out of the closet and decorated it, lights and all, during the work weekend. For three years the photo editor had been a naturally quiet, dependable and dedicated guy. Sound okay? Not really, he started to break out of his mold and no one was sure what lurked underneath. The copy editor thought she was " Chubby " and her comic relief and life traumas had the staff rolling on the floor. She also held the record for 1,877 continuous stool flushes in McCracken ' s bathroom. The production manager spent his time denying he was ever an art major, nor that he ever had a perma- nent in his hair. Then again, he also told people it was normal not to like pizza, cheeseburgers or spaghetti. These individuals may sound bizarre, but these per- sonalities played an intregal part in comprising the Tower editorial staff. Together they were one of the most dedicated, proud and diverse groups the year- book had in recent years. " The editorial board was unique in that each editor was commited to one goal- to make this year ' s book the best yet, " Adviser Laura Widmer said. " They were dedicated, talented and complemented each other well. Each could step in and help out in other areas. 1 felt fortunate to work with such a great group of editors. " A unique aspect to the board was the return of the editor-in-chief, Dana Kem- pker. No editor, in Tower history, had led the staff for two consecutive years. " Being editor again gave me an opportunity no other editor has had, to go back and improve on last year ' s book, " Kempker said. " I wanted to put something ex- tra into it. " That something extra in- cluded a three-color cover, more polished magazine design and what the staff called pizzazz. " This year ' s book looked so much better; it had piz- zazz, " Production Manager Kevin Fullerton said. " The design and graphics grabb- ed you because they went beyond being just technical- ly correct. " Even though the 1985 Tower received an Ail- American rating from Associated Collegiate Press, the staff felt they could im- prove, an All-American wasn ' t good enough. They wanted the book to be dynamic, to be accepted by students and critics. " The staff always had quality in mind with everything we did, " Fuller- ton said. " The book re- flected the enthusiasm of the staff because we took the extra time to make it right. " Because of the dedication and extra hours spent work- ing together, the staff often commented on the friend- ships and idea of family associated with working on the yearbook. " What 1 liked about the yearbook was the sense of family, " Tina Prewitt said. " We worked well together. We were concerned, not on- ly with what went in the book, but with each other. " The staff got more than friendships out of the work weekends, they also polish- ed their own skills. " The neatest thing was when you had blank layout sheets and slowly it came together--lines, copy, headlines, pictures--when we saw the final product, on- ly the staff knew what work went into that single crea- tion, " Copy Editor Nancy Meyer said. After the final spreads were finished, there were mixed emotions among those staff members leaving the university. " Mentally and physically I feel I ' ve done all I can, " Kempker said. " It ' s time for somebody else to take over. It has been a very important part of my life that has come to an end. The yearbook has meant a lot to me. I felt I have put everything into this book. Leaving is going to be sad. " It was also Widmer ' s last Tower Yearbook. She had worked on six Towers, three as a student and three as ad- viser. " 1 feel very fortunate to leave Northwest with what 1 feel is the best yearbook the University has ever seen, " she said. " 1 tried to instill a strong sense of pride in this publication and hopefully everyone has learned something from it. As an ad- viser, 1 felt grateful to have the opportunity to work with such an ideal group of editors that other advisers can only dream about.

Fac- ulty returned af- ter a five week Christmas break to learn specifics on the academic reorganization. They began to wonder about their future with the announcement of a cut in faculty. Students returned trying to understand the hows and whys behind tuition per credit hour and, once again, a tuition raise for the next year. Meanwhile, the university still searched for an academic vice presi- dent to replace George English. It seemed everyone was looking for answers. There seemed to be no quick answer to the Space Shuttle disaster. As the news spread around campus, students and facul- ty gathered to watch replays, shak- ing their heads in disbelief and wondering what would happen next in the space program. But there was also good news through the year. Gas prices plum- meted to prices not witnessed in over eight years as students filled their tanks for a mere 79 cents a gallon. The year itself held few surprises. Students still continued to stand in lines, await letters from home, at- tend or skip classes and party-with less supervision from the communi- ty than fall semester. The year ended, cars were pack- ed, goodbyes shared and diplomas awarded. But as students began their journey home, they still had unanswered questions as to what awaited them next fall. Maybe it was better to enjoy the sunshine ahead and worry later over what was to come next! 270 Closing Marching band members practice several times a weel preparing for haiftime football shows.

Mees Kimbal Mothershead Brent Orme Ken Scribner and Students of Northwest Editor ' s Note Debating whether or not to once again take on the title of editor-in-chief of the Tower was a major decision and one which I regretted only seldom during a year which seemed to whiz by. Taking on a second term gave my staff and I the chance to polish and perfect and create a style unique to the 1986 book. And ya know what guys-we did it. The pride that went into creating a product of this caliber was exciting. There was a feeling which simply overwhelmed when the last layout was sent to the plant or a student at the national convention complimented our book (without knowing it was ours) and most spectacular, as the first box of yearbooks was opened upon arrival. Now that was pride that brought tears to even this editor ' s eyes! But it wasn ' t done alone. I couldn ' t say thank you enough to my staff and especially the editorial board. Believe me, it would have been tragic without each and every one of you with your special talents. And there ' s a special thanks to Laura Widmer for giv- ing us pride, guidance and confidence these past three years to enable us to bring this publication up to the stan- dard of excellence it was used to. Also a personal note of gratitude for which I haven ' t the words to begin, but I know you understand their meaning anyway. Thanks for the memories McCracken Hall, for the ex- perience and responsibility you gave us all. But especial- ly for the friendships and laughter, of which there were plenty, shared within your walls. You will be missed and always considered our home away from home. After the hard work was done and long hours over. It wasn ' t so easy to say, " goodbye " and turn over my chair. I ' ll miss it. The jokes, food runs, mess and confusion, aspirin and dart throwing sessions. Yep, I ' ll miss it. But rest assured McCrackenites (and friends), everytime I burst into a round of " Must be Santa " I ' ll remember all of you and smile. Thanks Northwest and good luck to future Tower year- bookers. May God grant you plenty of patience, a great sense of humor and no organization section! Dana Kempker 1986 Tower Yearbook Editor Ill
