At Northwest some things took more imagination than others. Some events we never dreamed could happen — did happen. Funding was ap- proved for Northwest, so we became the first electronic campus in Missouri. Ber- lin and The Rainmakers were scheduled for the concerts and who would have ever dreamed the Good Sex Doctor, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, would appear in Maryville, now imagine that. Other events shook the imaginations of students and the nation. Drugs, especial- ly cocaine, became household words. The cocaine bust in Maryville and the deaths of Len Bias and Don Rogers caused us to realize drugs were a major problem, even in Maryville. a t Opening 3 Dancing Lessons Show Biz Pizza ' s Billy Bob teams up with Asa Young to entertain the Horace Mann students. -Photo by Nancy Meyer Slime Pit Preparing for a take down, Jamie Snook puts a head lock on Mary Beth Talmadge.

Once again there was academic reorganization as the schools and colleges were whittled to four. The dream of a computer in every dorm room finally became reali- ty but work crew had to tear up " Missou- ri ' s Most Beautiful Campus " to lay wires. Change also took place in Maryville with the re-opening of The Hitching Post and the opening of the Charter Oaks Restau- rant alongside the new Best Western University Inn. Yesterdays converted to a country-western bar, so the college crowd moved to The Power Station and The Palms. Some unimaginable dreams may have seemed like bad dreams to some of us. The drinking age in Iowa was changed, cutting down on roadtrips to Clarinda. Dorms received new washers and dryers but we had to have tokens to use them and the front desk never seemed to have enough. Parking was increased on cam- pus but on the wrong side, imagine that. A new lot was built on the west side of Col- lege Park but parking problems persisted on the east side of campus. Opening 5 m a g i n C ome things never change. Rain fell during Homecoming, imagine that. The bridge was once again an issue, as it was closed to traffic because of its poor structural condition. Talk of closing Roberta was being dis- cussed, even though the administration said it was just a rumor. Fashion and entertainment made the full circle back from the ' 50s and ' 60s. We wore paisleys, boxer shorts and cut our hair short. We rocked to the Monkees, Beach Boys and heard early rock ' n ' roll tunes from soundtracks like Stand By Me and Peggy Sue Got Married. To imagine was everything at North- west. Whether it was wrestling in Jello, lay- ing computer lines or protesting the bridge and bus route closures — we were in the midst of change — for better or worse.. .Im- agine That. a t 6 Opening High Hopes Alpha Sigma Alpha chant to show their enthusiasm at the beginning of Greek Week.

Greek Week ' s success helped uni- fy our fraternities and sororities. We worked on house decs, floats, jalo- pies, skits and clowns for Homecom- ing. Although it rained on our parade, the inclement weather frustrated RHA because of low attendance at the Carnival. It was also a year of celebrities at Northwest — Louise Mandrell, Berlin, Dr. Ruth and The Rainmakers visit- ed campus; whereas Mary Lou Ret- ton canceled her scheduled appearance. We did express our concern to the administration regarding the closing of the bridge and when the rumors regarding Rober- ta Hall were being spread. We also had something to be proud of — the electronic cam- pus became reality. Throughout the year we were reminded of the computer ' s place on campus, in every dorm room and faculty office on campus — imagine that. Q Rivalry 40 Advisers The war between the states some- times became a war within the state as Hawkeye and Cyclone fans fought for Iowa bragging rights. Sports rival- ries found you either hated or loved those Comhuskers. An adviser can play a key role in a student ' s college career. However, teachers and students don ' t always agree on what the adviser ' s job description should contain. Students liked teachers who got involved. rf " You either liked the Cy- clones or Hawkeyes. But no matter what choice you made, someone wouldn ' t like it. " Leslie Hutchins 1 A Rivalry Seeing red Rivalries go beyond state lines here they went, walk- ing down the street, all decked out in Big Red sweatshirts, Hawkeye hats, Sooner T-shirts and Missouri back- packs. Some called it spirit, while others called it " asking for trouble. " Showing spirit for a college football team could get a little carried away for some peo- ple, but others were just telling everyone who they were. When fall hit campus, football and college rivalries couldn ' t be far behind. College foot- ball was big and Northwest was no exception. With students from all parts of the Midwest, the spirit of their home state was brought with them, including Tiger Terrorism, Hawkeye Havoc, Big Red Fever and Sooner Syndrome. People learned to love certain colleges and hate others. At birth, some parents might have looked upon their newborn son and said, " He ' s going to be a Cyclone. " Daugh- ters were no exception. Mothers might have trained their little girls to grow up to become Golden Girls. Whether they were in the stadium or just at home in front of the TV, a die-hard col- lege football fan might have been all decked out in his favorite school colors from Henry Husker underwear to Missouri Tiger socks. Initials, like OCJ for Oklahoma, could have been tattooed on the cheeks or carved into the hair of die-hard Sooner fans. Nasty little comments like " Better dead than Husker Red " were printed on the chests of some Husker Haters, while bumper stick- ers on the rears of some cars said, " If I owned hell and Oklahoma, I ' d live in hell and rent out Oklahoma. " A friend could have been found when one wore a certain T-shirt. Needless to say, an enemy would also be at close range. " I was wearing my Hawkeye sweatshirt and this really good-looking guy started talking to me about how great the Hawks were, " Vel- ma Reed said. " Later on another guy walked up to me and told me I needed help in pick- ing my clothes because he said he would never be seen alive in a Hawkeye sweatshirt. " In certain areas of the country, there were particular rules people made up over the years concerning cheering for a college. " You either liked the Cyclones or Hawkeyes, " said Leslie Hutchins, a native lo- wan. " But no matter what choice you made, someone, somewh ere, wouldn ' t like it. " Stereotypes often came out of college rivalries. People often made first impressions about people they met when they found out what state they were from. In some cases, it became a part of the whole communica- tion process. " When I was introduced to someone and they found out I was from Missouri, the per- son giggled or cracked jokes about the Tigers, " Dan Adams said. " Whatever was said, nothing bad was meant. " Just because one was from a certain area didn ' t mean that person had to support his football team. One student, Kim Fichter, from Iowa really wasn ' t concerned with an Iowa team. " 1 was always a Comhusker fan, " Fichter said. " I had a lot of close friends that went there and I really liked sports. Nebraska had an excellent sports program. " For many people, following a college foot- ball team became a way of life for them. It was their personality. " When someone gave me a bad time about being a loyal Iowa fan, " Reed said, " I just said, ' You can take me out of Iowa, but you can ' t take the Iowa out of me ' . " Many students left their home states phys- ically, but not spiritually. What college spirit couldn ' t be stuffed into a suitcase or duffle bag remained in students ' minds - at least un- til game day.D Kevin Sharpe Even though they go to school at Northwest, college rivalries still existed among many students. Warren Jones, Kathy Armstrong, Mike Nelson and Tami Haddox show spirit for their home state. -Photo illustration by Scott Trunkhill Rivalry 11 " The ceremo- ny actually didn ' t seem big enough for the accomplish- ments. ' ' Tom Cairns Grad-ification A new degree of accomplishment Commencement Day. The date was marked on students ' calendars for months--perhaps years. It was a day many had worked for all their lives. They had envisioned a per- fect spring day on which to celebrate their accomplishments, but instead they got pouring rain. The weather added to the confusion of lin- ing up more than 560 graduates in alpha- betical order. Originally, the students were to line up outdoors, but the downpour drove them into the basement of Lamkin Gym. Here the students dealt with heat and humid- ity, wet caps and gowns and a variety of other difficulties. " One problem was trying to find where to put my umbrella, " Julie Tavernaro said. " 1 couldn ' t exactly put it under my cap and gown. " But all the confusion and bad weather couldn ' t overshadow the mixed emotions graduates had about the day. " Most of the people around me said they couldn ' t even listen to what was going on, " Tavernaro said. " They were just thinking about the future, their friends and what life held for them from that point on. " Many realized, though, that meeting the future meant leaving old friends. " We were excited, but we were also sad be- cause we knew everyone would be going their separate ways, " Joyce Espey said. Espey agreed that friendships made the accomplishments even more special. " It was pretty exciting to see friends walk across the stage who had struggled through those four years with me, because I knew we had shared the same experiences, " she said. Mow the graduates shared their last ex- perience together as college students: the graduation ceremony itself. They listened as President Dean Hubbard announced funding had been received to transform Northwest into an electronic cam- pus. They laughed as Dr. Shaila Aery, who addressed the graduates, jokingly expressed the hope that the next funding approved would be for a multipurpose building where graduation could be held without roasting the participants. In some respects it was much like past years. However, unlike past years, com- mencement was held in the morning instead of the afternoon in order to avoid excessive heat. This also allowed students with long distances to travel to leave earlier. For the spring graduates, the long journey toward a degree was over. However, some students were just entering the last leg. For them, summer commencement, Aug. 7, was their night to celebrate. Unlike the spring graduates, summer degree recipients had no trouble with rain or heat. Air conditioning kept almost 270 graduates comfortable during the evening ceremony at Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. Despite the differences, though, it was still a day to say good-bye and celebrate achieve- ments. It was also another opportunity to honor those who had served the university. While the university honored those who contributed their money, graduates remem- bered those who had contributed their love. " 1 remember being very glad it was finally over and thinking of all the stuff a lot of peo- ple besides me had gone through, like my wife and kids, " said Tom Cairns, who received his master ' s degree. " The ceremony actual- ly didn ' t seem big enough for the accomplishments. " However, both speakers and students real- ized that accomplishments didn ' t end with graduation. " It ' s really a starting point rather than an ending point, " Tavernaro said. Formal education was over; life ' s education was just beginning.

" Clara Martison 4 Summer studies Books instead of beaches - inals came to an end. Belongings were packed and books were traded in for sun- tan lotion. Most stu- dents headed for the pool, started a sum- mer job, or caught up on favorite soaps, hap- py to escape the class- room for a carefree summer. Other students, eager for their degrees, settled in for summer sessions. " I basically wanted to get caught up on my credits, " Carol Freeman said, " so 1 wouldn ' t have to take as many hours in the fall. " Because most of the on-campus students lived in Franken Hall, they met students who were not usual dorm residents. " There were teachers living in Franken who were going to school to get re-certified, " Toni Anthony said. " I lived next door to two older ladies. It was interesting. " Some students found themselves having to roll out of bed early in the morning in time to make it to 7:15 classes. These brave souls conquered this inhumane hour and trudged onward to classes, even though the average student on summer vacation usually did not see the light of day until late morning. " My chemistry class was at 7:15 and it was hard to get up, " Stan Greenwell said. " But I just forced myself to get up and go. " Some students did not see their morning classes as a great obstacle and even grew to like them. " I didn ' t think the early classes were too bad, " Schackelford said. " I was done by 1 1 and had my afternoons free. " The quiet night life of Maryville caused some students to go home for the weekends. " I loved not having any classes on Friday so I could cruise out of here, " Clara Martison said. " But not having classes on Friday dur- ing the summer made it hard to stick around during the regular school year. " With limited options to choose from, stu- dents tried to create their own fun when the sun went down. " There weren ' t a lot of things to do on- campus at night, " Anthony said. " We went for bike rides, on long walks or to the mo- vies. We sort of had the run of the campus and the town, but there wasn ' t much to do. " Students who took first block courses were able to take advantage of the remaining sum- mer months. " Because I went first block I had time to take a trip to California for my summer va- cation, " Freeman said. " So when it was time to come back in the fall, it was no problem. " Those who went second block had little time to relax before the fall semester. " Summer school went at such a leisurely pace and classes seemed easier, " Greenwell said. " It was hard to come back to the rou- tine and pick up the hours again. " As summer came to an end, the suntan lotion was put away and the books were brought back out. For some, however, the books were only shuffled around a bit.D : 14 Summer Barbara president. Furthermore, Panhellenic and IFC started preparing in the spring for Formal Rush. They organized a booklet explaining the different Greek organizations. " Panhellenic sent newsletters, along with applications, out to incoming freshmen dur- ing the summer, " Dempsey said. Fraternity rush lasted three weeks, whereas, sorority rush only lasted four days. All four sororities had four days of parties with various themes, and gave out bids on the fifth day. " Rush was like a big whirlwind, " Tracy Turn- er said. " But I could tell which sorority was special to me and where I belonged. " She said nothing could explain the feeling she had when she walked into her sorority ' s chapter room. " I knew that all I had been through was worth it.

For some, their interest was going through Formal Rush and taking a peek at Greek life. " 1 went through Formal Rush because I was thinking about joining a fraternity, " John Scott said. " I did not join because I had a hard time deciding which fraternity to pledge. " He also said he wanted to wait a semester and see how everyone treated him. The two governing bodies of the Greek system were Panhellenic Council for sorori- ties and Inter-Fraternity Council for fraternities. " Both Panhellenic and IFC went through numerous steps to prepare for Formal Rush and devoted many hours of hard work, " said Barbara Dempsey, Panhellenic Council president. Furthermore, Panhellenic and IFC started preparing in the spring for Formal Rush. They organized a booklet explaining the different Greek organizations. " Panhellenic sent newsletters, along with applications, out to incoming freshmen dur- ing the summer, " Dempsey said. Fraternity rush lasted three weeks, whereas, sorority rush only lasted four days. All four sororities had four days of parties with various themes, and gave out bids on the fifth day. " Rush was like a big whirlwind, " Tracy Turn- er said. " But I could tell which sorority was special to me and where I belonged. " She said nothing could explain the feeling she had when she walked into her sorority ' s chapter room. " I knew that all I had been through was worth it. " Each fraternity was allowed one alcoholic smoker during Formal Rush. " A smoker was the major party during rush, " Paul Mertz said. " You were invited to dinner and then a party, this was when you started getting to know the guys and how the house worked. " Compared to larger universities, Formal Rush at Northwest consumed more time. " The bigger schools had their rush in the summer about two weeks before classes even began, " Sandy Headrick said. " Having Homecoming and Formal Rush at the same time made it more hectic. " Since rush was scheduled early in the fall, it conflicted with Homecoming preparations and put more pressure on the Greeks. " I think rush went by too fast. Everyone was too tense and there was a lot of pressure on the rushees and the Greeks, " Leslie Wil- cox said. Where were you from? What was your major? What year were you in school? Some rushees thought the repetition would never end. The same questions were asked so many times they felt like a computer trans- mitting a message. At times they probably wanted to shed their stuck on smile and say, " It did not compute. " " Even though the same questions were asked over and over, it was a great technique to get to know the rushees better, " Sam Mas- on said. He also said Formal Rush was very successful. During sorority rush, each rushee was as- signed a rush counselor, who was a Greek woman from an unidentified sorority. " A rush counselor was there for the rushee at all times and gave an unbiased opinion to any questions that a rushee had, " said Amy Parrott, Panhellenic treasurer. She also ad- ded that the rush counselor was a great listener. " I was dying to find out what sorority my rush counselor was in, and I was excited when I found out she was in the same sorori- ty I pledged, " Beth Jochens said. " She came and talked to me everyday. Rush was hard enough with her, it would have been awful without her. " Formal Rush provided many lasting friend- ships with the fraternities and the sororities because everyone had the same opportuni- ty to meet new people. " Formal Rush, gave each rushee a more serious look at each Greek organization, " Par- rot said.L] Colletta Neighbors and Chris Townsend h " Rush was like a big whirlwind. But I could tell which sorority was special to me and where I belonged. " Tracy Turner Rush 19 Taking a little off the top, Jeff Moe puts the finishing touches on the Delta Chi float.

Stu- dents were forced out of bed at early hours while others had no time for rest. They pushed on, working against the clock, only hoping their long hours would pay off. Who would be victorious during Homecoming? With historical events as the theme, the action-packed week brought back people and events such as Betsy Ross, the Space Shuttle and a two-man Hindenburg. Unfor- tunately, the Hindenburg ' s catastrophic his- tory came with it, causing it to fall over in the street during the parade. Cold temperatures and rain also returned, hampering the week of events. Bad weather also affected the addition of a carnival to the week of Homecom- ing activities. Residence Hall Association sponsored the carnival to provide an alterna- tive to the traditional Homecoming celebra- tions. Unfortunately, rides were unsafe to operate during the rain, therefore the carnival closed early. History repeated itself in another compli- cation, midterms fell during Homecoming week, creating havoc for participants. " I think it ' s sad the parade gets smaller each year, " Scott Susich said. " But it didn ' t help to have midterms during Homecoming. The teachers and administration did nothing to help those who worked on it. " Enjoyment was the end result of hard work and dedication put into the week, which be- gan with the Variety Show on Thursday night. " History worth repeating " set the scene for the skits and olio acts at the Mary Linn Per- forming Arts Center.

" Thou shalt blow off Campus Safety tickets " brought cheers of approval from the audience. " All of us worked together and it was real- ly great to win, " Steve Nehring said. " We came up with all our own ideas to incorporate in the skit. " Delta Chi repeated as Greek men ' s division winner, while Delta Zeta, Phi Mu and Sigma Sigma Sigma had a three-way tie for first in the women ' s division. " I still felt like our skit was a first place skit, " Stacy Smith said. " 1 understood there were some hard feelings and some felt a decision should have been made, but I would rather have tied for first than to have placed second or third. " Michael Jackson, Run-D.M.C, David Lee Roth and Elton John appeared in the winning olio act entitled " Epsilon Produc- tion " presented by Jim Coynes. The crowd reacted with screams of laughter to the cra- zy episode. " It was a really funny and original idea, " Rhonda Sheets said. " It added to the show because it was new and different. I had never seen anything like it before. " However, the grand finale for opening night was the crowning of the Homecoming Queen. Five finalists waited in anticipation. Maya Benavente, sponsored by Delta Chi fraternity; Jodi Brady, sponsored by M-Club; Stephanie Carter, sponsored by American Marketing Association; Lisa Lutes, spon- sored by Millikan Hall; and Kim Ray, spon- sored by Delta Sigma Phi fraternity held their breath until it was announced. Moments later Jodi Brady was crowned Homecoming Queen and another event of Homecoming was history. The long process it took to get there was definitely worth it for Brady, even though there were some complications. " When M-Club nominated me, there were all kinds of complications with working around my volleyball schedule for interviews, " --continued V A i WL. w " It took a lot of motivation. It was a pain at times, but it was well worth it to watch the parade Satur- day morning, knowing your exhaustion was worth it. " Greg Mann The spirit of America comes through in the Delta Zeta float. The float, which featured Bet- sy Ross and the flag, took first place overall. It was the first time in more than 20 years the Delta Zeta float had won first prize. -Photo by Kevin Fullerton In V Homeco min g rl " It was the most outstand- ing feeling when we walked up and got the first place trophy after the game. There was a special feeling a fter beating the Phi Sig ' s, since they had won it for several years. " Tom Paulsen Rainy reunion Brady said. " So I had to miss two tourna- ments the team played in, but the coach and team were really understanding. " Brady felt being crowned queen was a blessing everyone could learn from. " I thought it showed people you didn ' t necessarily have to be the prettiest or the most popular person on campus, " Brady said. " All you had to do was enjoy your friends and let them know you cared about them. " The following day marked the traditional Walk Out Day, providing students with extra time to prepare for the parade. Despite all the planning and prior work, most floats were still being pomped and house decs were still being finished late the night before. " Building a float was really tough, " Janice Petty said. " It took a lot of time, patience and energy to get it done. " Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity felt their efforts paid off when their house dec received first place, defeating the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity who had won for the last four years. " It was the most outstanding feeling when we walked up and got the first place trophy after the game, " Tom Paulsen said. " There was a special feeling after beating the Phi Sig ' s, since they had won it for several years. " Most students who worked on floats and house decs agreed the hard work was justified. " It took a lot of motivation, " Greg Mann said. " It was a pain at times, but it was well worth it to watch the parade Saturday morn- ing, knowing your exhaustion was worth it. " Everything was ready, or almost ready when Saturday morning arrived. The day everyone planned for had finally come, but the planning didn ' t prevent another rainy re- union. It rained all morning, but residents, students and alumni still lined the streets with umbrellas to combat the weather. Despite the rain, many people were deter- mined to have a good time and looked at the rain optimistically. " The parade went very well, except for the rain, but that made it fun, " Lori Kortmuar Putting her time into Homecoming, Karen Hoppers pomps Phi Mu ' s float, commemorating the Wright Brother ' s historic flight. -Photo by Nan- cy Meyer said. Unfortunately the rain didn ' t end with the parade. The weather didn ' t help attendance at the Homecoming game. Many left during or before half time due to the weather. " 1 left before the second half because it was so wet, " Joyce McKenna said. " I wasn ' t really watching because it was too cold and too wet to pay attention to what was going on during the game. " Not only did the rain have an adverse ef- fect on the attendance of the Homecoming game, it was detrimental to the Bearcats as they were defeated 13-3 by the University of Missouri-Rolla Miners. However, the overall performance of the Bearcats didn ' t hinder some good efforts. Bearcat defensive end Junior Mao was awarded the Don Black Memorial Trophy fol- lowing the game. The award is presented to the outstanding Bearcat athlete in the Homecoming game. October 1 2, 1 986. The day was damp and dreary. Students tore down floats and house decs while others rested and enjoyed them- selves after long hours of work.

Cotton candy that disap- peared into sweet nothingness. The breathless thrill of dar- ing rides. Attempting games of skill to win toys or stuffed animals. Traditional images of a carnival visit. However, Northwest ' s first carnival, spon- sored by Resident Hall Association (RHA), did not leave such a memorable impression. Tortured by the wind, cold and rain, the carnival was only open two days out of four scheduled. According to Deb Epley, chair- man, the bad weather had a negative effect on turnout. RHA had originally expected 10,000 visitors to the carnival, but approxi- mately 200 attended. Despite the poor turnout, the carnival was not a major financial loss for RHA. Deb Wad- dle, assistant director of housing and RHA adviser, said the travelling carnival crew was on its way home. Therefore, they did not charge a fee to set up on campus. " We only had to pay for diesel fuel and the generators, " Waddle said. " The people that ran the carnival were honest, gave us sugges- tions; plus we were given 15 percent of the profits. " For those who participated in the carnival, a variety of attractions were there. The ferris wheel, hot dog stands, plus booths selling jewelry, sweatshirts and homemade buttons, lined the Phillips Hall parking lot. With all the attractions, both Epley and Waddle thought the crowd response was positive. However, student reactions were mixed. Grant McClune, in charge of public rela- tions for RHA, said he heard negative com- ments about the carnival. " People thought it was too expensive, " he said. " A $1.25 per ride was too much for a college student ' s budget. " The bad weather also dampened student response. Michelle Lange said the carnival was fun, but it should have been held when the weather was nicer. Kendall Roberts, along with sixth floor Dieterich, sold hot dogs and sponsored a " can smash " game. " I think the carnival was a good idea, but the weather hindered it, " he said. " If they have another one, they should have it when more people could come. " According to Waddle, RHA was consider- ing doing another carnival next year. Epley said, though, that future carnivals should oc- cur at the beginning of fall semester, to wel- come incoming freshmen. With all new ideas come both negative and positive reactions. While some student par- ticipants, thought the timing and weather could have been improved, Cindy Rathke was still enthused about the carnival. " It (the carnival) made you feel like you were back home at a county fair. " □ Lisa Helzer W ,4lMht l " I think the carnival was a good idea, but the weather hindered it.

Weekends in the ' Ville were not so glamorous, but students created original attractions. Dorm rooms were popular settings for en- tertainment. Guys enjoyed watching football games or renting movies, popping popcorn, eating pizza or drinking a few beers. Some preferred the serenity of a suitcase college atmosphere and hibernated in their rooms. " Weekends were a good time for me to catch up on my sleep, do laundry, clean my room or do the things I ' d put off all week, " Tom Bart said. Typical scenes in girls ' rooms were quite different. They tended to write letters, re-dec- orate their rooms or have slumber parties. Some girls managed to be more sly, however. " When I got bored, " Lisa Oltman said, " I liked to try on my roommate ' s clothes while she was gone; to see what I could wear the next week. " Lamkin Gym facilities, dorm lounges and the Owens Library were frequently used by those who chose not to confine themselves to their rooms. Whether it was playing volley- ball in Horace Mann, shooting pool or throw- ing the Frisbee, students found activities to occupy their time. " There was always something to do, " Jay Tiefenthaler said. " I would call home to find out what was going on, go swimming, lift weights or go out on dates. " Escaping campus was necessary for some who felt isolated from the outside world. Fraternity or sorority members often had house duties and some students had regu- lar jobs that filled their weekends. The parti- ers went to Nodaway Lake or attended the Friday Afternoon Club at The Power Station. Roadtripping was a popular event for those seeking big city attractions or those who sim- ply wanted to get away. " I ' d go to Kansas City or St. Joe to see a concert or just bum around town and ex- plore, " David Felt said. Visiting other colleges or attending Roy- als and Chiefs games provided a change of atmosphere for students. Women often sought out shopping malls. Whether or not they had any money, they enjoyed looking and trying on clothes. Simply seeing a movie or eating out broke the monotony of the school routine. Regardless of the fun students had while staying at school, people frequently com- plained there was nothing to do in Maryville. " If everyone had stayed here on the weekends, this place would have been fun, " Kelly Zart said. " The most fun I ever had was the first three days before school started be- cause everyone was here. With so many friends around, there was much more to do. " Although students didn ' t discover big city lights and the hustle and bustle of city life in Maryville; they found their own entertain- ment through creativity and individuality. Maryville had its own weekend attractions — the people. □ Cara Moore and Lisa Helzer " If everyone stayed here on the weekends, this place would have been fun.

Four guys dressed in togas made out of bed- sheets and Italian tablecloths pushed the can with a girl in- side all over campus. She looked as if she was going to jump through her skin. Her screams could be heard across campus. She held on for dear life as the men pushed the portable trash can. Just as they turned into Roberta Circle, the wheels flew off, but that didn ' t stop them. They picked up the can, minus the wheels, and sprinted to the finish line. These chariot races were much different than during the days of the ancient Greeks. However, the days of the Greeks were back, back at Northwest anyway. Greek Week was a tradition filled with wacky events. Several changes took place from past Greek Weeks. Out went the old games like volleyball, boxing, marshmallow stuffing and hot dog eating contests. New games like the keg toss, the pizza eating contest, pyramid building and the chariot race were added. One of the most popular events, the chari- ot race, required the fraternities to construct their own chariots. The race began in the Horace Mann parking lot and ended at Roberta Circle. Women from the sororities volunteered to ride in the chariots. For some women, the ride was bumpy and quite an ex- perience, but for others, the ride was as smooth as silk. " I felt safe, " Laura Kastens said. " My chari- ot was very comfortable. It was custom built, --continued Chariot races were a new attraction to Greek Week.

The only bad thing about it was that it had so much on it and made it really heavy. We were the last ones to finish, but we had the best chariot. " Besides the chariot race, other events in- cluded a dizzy bat race, a softball game, raft races, tricycle race and a mystery game. Participants of the mystery game had no idea what the event was until they arrived at the playing field. Waiting for the mystery game players were a pair of pantyhose and two oranges. The rules involved placing one of the oranges into a leg of the pantyhose, then the nylon was wrapped around the waist of the participant so the orange in the stocking would be suspended between the legs of the player. Then, without the use of his or her hands, the participant had to hit the remain- ing orange, that was on the ground with the orange suspended between their legs, to a finishing line. " Anytime you get a pair of pantyhose together with fruit, you ' re bound to see something hilarious, " Chris Cotten said. " It wasn ' t your regular combination of objects. I thought it was hilarious. " Embarrassing, as well as hilarious, described the tricycle race. Members of the sororites participated in a relay race that in- volved tricycles, flippers and helmets. The players had to put on jumbo flippers and an over-sized helmet and then ride a small tricy- cle around a track. For many of the women, the trikes were just too small. But they managed to figure out a way to get around on the three-wheeler. Others found that the trike was just their size. " It was really embarrassing because I ' m only 4T1 " , and that tricycle fit me perfectly, " Andi Jack said. " The most difficult part of the race was getting onto the tricycle. The helmets were really big, too. I felt like a wee- ble wobble with the helmet bouncing up and down on my head. " The events weren ' t the only reason Greek Week was such a success, according to many Greek members. Organization also played a key part in its success. " It was one of the most organized Greek Weeks I have ever seen, " Jay De Leonard said. " Everyone knew what they were sup- posed to do and where they should have been. The week was excellent. " The four day event began on April 15 with a Greek sing at the Bell Tower, followed by the chariot race. Phi Sigma Kappa won the race while the best decorated chariot award was given to the men of Delta Chi. After the chariot races, the Roberta Circle Dance ended the day ' s events. The follow- ing day, the Greeks had a softball game and a picnic. On April 17, the Greek Philanthro- py Project took place which involved clean- ing downtown Maryville. On the last day, the women of Delta Zeta and the men of Sigma Phi Epsilon were crowned champions of the Greek games. Also on the last day, the Chamber of Com- merce awarded several honors to the sorori- ties and fraternities of Northwest. The wom- en of Alpha Sigma Alpha were named the Outstanding Sorority, while the Outstanding Fraternity was Delta Chi. Hamilton Hender- son, from Delta Chi, was named the out- standing Greek sponsor. Diane Watson from Delta Zeta and Dan Hilliard from Alpha Kap- pa Lambda were named the Outstanding Greek Woman and Greek Man respectively. Not only did they go away winners, but ac- cording to many Greek men and women, anyone who participated during the week was a winner. " The best thing about the whole week was getting together and being there at the same time, " Jamie Snook said. " We weren ' t there to compete, but just to have a good time.

One care- fully peered over the blades of grass, checking for signs of movement. The coast was clear as they got to their feet. Suddenly there was the sound of a hollow thump, a swish and a pop as the open field was bathed in light. The two partners instinc- tively dove into the cool dampness of dew- covered grass, but it was too late. A burst of machine-gun fire shattered the quiet autumn and two camouflaged figures appeared out of nowhere. Two more captives were on their way to the POW camp. The camp wasn ' t in Southeast Asia, the bullets weren ' t real and the scene didn ' t come from a war picture. It was all part of Surviv al Weekend, held each semester at Nodaway Lake. The exercise culminated the activities of Survival, Escape and Evasion, one military science course offered as an elective. Dur- ing this class, students learned the basics of land and terrestrial navigation and orienteer- ing, as well as emergency first-aid, shelter construction and other survival techniques. The field portion of the class, or Survival Weekend, which came after several weeks of classroom instruction, began on a Friday at 4 p.m. Students clad in everything from camouflage fatigues to faded jeans and sweatshirts, climbed aboard the 2 2 -ton Army truck. As the last student squeezed in, the tailgate was slammed shut and the olive green tarp was pulled down, throwing pas- sengers into total darkness. The engine rum- bled to life and the vehicle began to bounce down the road to Nodaway Lake. As the truck came to a halt, the tarp was opened, tailgate dropped and survivalists piled out, trying fiercely to adjust their eyes to sunlight. There was a quick formation in order to take attendance, then the group moved to its campsite, located in a small grove of pine trees. There they pitched tents and ate dinner. Later, the survival students received instructions in using a compass at night as they waited for darkness to fall. Maj. Thomas Muskus, officer in charge of the ex- ercise, his instructors and the students were ready to go to work. By 8 p.m. it was dark enough to start night navigation. Students were paired and taken to different starting points where they were released to find designated markers. The ob- ject of the exercise was to find and properly identify five markers, record them and return to the starting point within 90 minutes. As soon as time elapsed and the last pair was in, the survivalists prepared for the main field exercise. They worked on movement techniques, short sprints and applied camouflage to themselves, their clothes and their equipment. Eluding the enemy, however, was more difficult than the survivalists thought. As anx- ious students neared what they thought was their starting point, automatic weapons and machine guns erupted from both sides. Rangers came screaming out of high grass and trees. The students dropped instantly to the mud. The ambush had been successful and all students were captured at once. The prisoners were ordered to their feet. Then they were marched single file with their heads down, eyes closed and hands on the shoulders of whoever was in front of them. Suddenly a flare went up. Someone screamed. " Go! Go! " This was the real start- ing point. Students scattered in panic. For the next four hours, the survivalists had the difficult task of trying to reach the base camp on the opposite side of the lake. Capture meant the POW camp, where there was an uncertain future. By midnight Saturday, it was over. Although most were captured, all survived " Survival Weekend, " leaving each with his own war stories to tell.D Doug Rossell Even the face of students is camouflaged dur- ing the Survival Weekend.

I sat down at my desk, ready to take on the world, as well as my home- work. I suddenly realized I hadn ' t clipped my fingernails. Quickly I completed the task and thought, " While I ' m at it, might as well get the toenails done too. " I ' ve noticed whenever I had a million things to do, that ' s when I didn ' t have the enthusiasm to get them done. " Here ' s to enthusiasm, " as I swallowed a couple of Vivarin. Half-hour later I had energy, but not to study. So I got out my tapes, put my favor- ite one in the boom box and started to jam. A wave of sheer energy electrified my body so I began to practice my All-Star Wrestling moves. I climbed up on the top rope, my desk, and did a combination flying-drop-kick-pile-driver onto my bed. I continued to practice my wrestling moves on my defenseless monkey, Marvin. Enter — one roommate who calmly asks, " What the hell are you doing? No, don ' t tell me, I don ' t want to know. " There was no need to explain, my roommate had al- ready signed me up for special testing. After my roommate left, I regained a small degree of control. I calmly laid on my bed. My mind was flooded with wonder- ful, envious thoughts of the party at the lake, which I didn ' t have time for. Those thoughts came to an abrupt end as a fly landed on my nose. The next 10 minutes were spent insane- ly chasing the fly with my psychology book. Realizing that I needed to be smart- er than the fly, I started to read the book, as bait. I sat, waiting, book open like I was reading a Bible and hands ready to spring into action. Boom. I clapped the book together and chuckled to myself. I opened my psych book and quickly found the pages with the crushed fly. With delight I flicked the fly into the trash. I was proud I had beaten the fly. Glancing down, I realized that the trash hadn ' t been taken out for a couple of weeks. It was the five pizza boxes, the 30 pop cans and the six, large, overflowing Hefty garbage bags that clued me in. It figured, I was always the one that had to make sure things got done and taking out the trash was obviously no exception. Now, with the trash out, I was deter- mined to get something done. While I made a list of things I needed to get done, I stared at the helium-filled balloon given to me for my birthday. Then I started thinking, my curiousity got the best of me. " I wonder what it would be like to breathe helium? There ' s nothing like ex- perience to help you understand the richer things in life. " In moments I had a squeaky high- pitched voice. I giggled alone in my room. However, the helium high didn ' t last long and a terrible headache was the afteref- fect. Somehow I don ' t think it was meant to be one of life ' s richer experiences. There was just this feeling that I wasn ' t ready to get serious yet. I hadn ' t eaten all day. Unfortunately, I had been on campus and believed that a nutritional meal is im- portant for clear thinking. That ' s why I didn ' t eat on campus. Something heavy just didn ' t sound good, so I opted for some fresh popcorn. Now, quality popcorn can only be made over a campfire. But the only campfire I knew of was out at the lake and there was a party out there. So, for the sake of ener- gy I forced myself to the lake. I did get something accomplished — I had a great time. I ' ll get to the homework — tomorrow. □ Lori Nelson The next 10 minutes were spent insanely chasing the fly with my psy- chology book. Avoiding Homework 37 " I hated it.

Everybody was going to the bars in Clarinda. " What time are you guys going? Come on, you ' ve got to go. It ' ll be a blast. Who ' s driving?... not me, I ' m getting trashed. " Those questions and suggestions ran ram- pant throughout the dorms on Wednesday. The day began with questions and ended at a bar in Clarinda, Iowa. Highway 71 , the direct route to Clarinda, received an enormous amount of use over the years; the years when Iowa ' s legal drink- ing age was 19. But that changed last July when the legal drinking age was raised to 21 . However, there was a bright spot; the grand- father clause applied to those who had al- ready turned 1 9 by Sept. 1 . The grandfather clause prevented a privilege from being taken away after it was already given. Many students didn ' t see this as much of a bright spot. " I had never been to Clarinda and the age changed before I got the chance to go, " Katie Litterick said. There were also students who drank in Iowa before, but no longer could after the age changed since the grandfather clause applied only to Iowa residents. " That wasn ' t fair, " Denise Brewer said. " I drank there last year. That was the best part about turning 19. " However, the students who felt the stron- gest about the change, were those who had just missed the Sept. 1 deadline. " It made me extremely mad, " Eric Keller said. " I only missed the age by 10 days. " Many students felt the change was bad be- cause it affected them indirectly through friends who missed the deadline. " A lot of my friends weren ' t of age, so I couldn ' t party with them, " Cindy Lustgraff said. " It seemed ridiculous to me that someone a week and a half or a month older than me could drink but I couldn ' t, " Keller said. One argument that kept popping up on campus was the " adult at 1 8 " point of view. " 1 hated it, " David Hinders said. " If you ' re old enough to vote and get your butt shot off, you ' re old enough to drink. " Clarinda was a party town for students and it wasn ' t just because the drinking age was lower. There was the atmosphere, the danc- ing, the live bands and the fact that your friends were there. " There just wasn ' t a place in Maryville where your friends could have gone to dance and party if they weren ' t of legal age, " Kelly Cox said. " If you went to Clarinda, you didn ' t have to worry about not knowing anyone, be- cause everybody was there. You always had a good time, " Lustgraff said. The days when 1 9 and 20-year-olds road- tripped to Clarinda were gone. It ' s Wednesday night. You know what that means — time to find something to do in the ' Ville.

We laughed and joked to the car, stumbling instead of walking. 1 was drunk, too drunk, yet I got into the driver ' s seat. 1 wasn ' t driving safely. Suddenly I found myself driving on the wrong side of the street. But at that moment I didn ' t care; my mind was too numb to notice how potentially dangerous 1 was. However, a policeman did observe my hazardous driving. Before I had time to realize what was happening, a siren sounded and red and blue lights glared through the rearview mirror. The related incident was fictitious, however, several students had ex- perienced it. Bill (not his real name) said he didn ' t usually drive drunk, but he did the night he was arrested. He was legally drunk with .16 blood-alcohol content. The le- gal limit was .10. He went through the sobriety tests, was handcuffed and waited at the police station for a friend to bail him out. After the incident, Bill said he would think twice before driving drunk or even riding with someone who had been drinking. " I think I ' ll go to the bars on foot now. " His parents were also affected by his DWI arrest. " They were stunned and shocked when they found out, " Bill said. " It was harder to tell my parents than to actu- ally go through it. " However, Bill ' s experience didn ' t end with telling his parents, he still had to appear in court. " I was really nervous while I waited for my case to be called; when it was, the prosecutor asked to have it held over. That scared me, but it turned out to be nothing. " Bill ' s fine was $200 plus court costs and he had to attend Alcohol Related Traffic Offender Program or ARTOP, which consisted of 10 hours of study- ing the effects of alcohol. " Now, I don ' t even think about drink- ing and driving, " Bill said.D Lisa Helzer In order for minors to get into bars, falsifying driver ' s licenses was a necessity. -Photo by Kevin Fullerton tF Iowa Drinking Age 39 " I considered my adviser as my friend and if I needed anyone to talk to, I knew who to go to. " Carrie Huke ' Take my advice ' Students see role differently o you know where you ' re going to... Do you like the things that life has shown you... Where are you going to... Do you know? After high school graduation, students were faced with making the deci- sion of which direction their lives were head- ing. This task was difficult and they proba- bly needed assistance. If they decided to at- tend college, they also needed assistance in guiding their education. A college adviser was essential to a student ' s education. Remember when freshmen arrived on campus in the fall? They were running around like chickens with their heads cut off. They had no clue what classes they were go- ing to take or who was going to help them solve these " massive " problems. This was where the job of an adviser came to action. According to Dr. Phil Hayes, dean of students, " an academic adviser ' s job was to help academic people further their education. " In addition, there were few responsibilities which go along with advising students. Ac- cording to John Jasinski, mass communica- tions department, " there were no formal guidelines, except registering students for classes and beyond that point, the job was scattered. " He also added that advisers went through no preparat ion for the job, but received a few hand-outs. Along the same lines, students of North- west had their own definition of an adviser ' s responsibilities as well. " An adviser was there to help the students out and try to communicate with them as much as possible, " Heather Philip said. " A good adviser would be willing to work with the students in any way possible at any time. " There was some controversy concerning In order to add or drop classes, a student must receive his adviser ' s signature. Kent Weigel com- pletes the last phase of dropping a class. -Photo by Sarah Frerking the job of an adviser. Some students had spoken highly of their advisers and their abil- ity to work with them, but others have had some problems. " My adviser worked with me closely from the start. He was willing to put forth a great effort to help and guide my education, " Michelle Hatch said. " My adviser just signed my enrollment sheet with little assistance, " Lori Reynolds said. Other students experienced problems also. " I have had my adviser changed so many times that 1 almost forgot their names, " Tom Jensen said. " When I first came to Northwest, it turned out that the adviser I was assigned to was not here any longer. However, my new adviser helped me out immensely, " Jamie Snook said. --continued ■ p ntshad I otkn gedso Tames, " Snool ltmued X Not only does October bring midterms, it also brings pre-registration for spring semester.

" I considered my adviser as my friend and if I needed anyone to talk to, I knew who to go to, " Carrie Huke said. Many times when a student needed help with their schedule, they depended upon other students for assistance in selecting the best instructor. Therefore, the purpose of go- ing to an adviser for help was ignored. " When I was in doubt about which instruc- tor to take for a certain course, 1 relied on the other students ' guidance instead of going to my adviser, " John Miller said. Furthermore, advisers experienced problems and felt that sometimes the stu- dent was too dependent on his help or ex- pected the adviser to do all the work. " College students have to take their own initiative and be responsible for their own ac- tions, " Jasinski said. How can these problems be alleviated? As it stands, freshmen are required to take Freshman Seminar. Whoever their instruc- tor may be, they automatically become their adviser. Getting assistance from an adviser is crucial, but not deadly. If someone had problems in the past, it was probably due to lack of communication. An adviser can make or break you. They are essential to your education, just as com- munication is important to keep a healthy relationship in progress. □ Colletta Neighbors Seminar stresses survival hat dreaded red book. The red Ibook freshmen lugged around at 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The red book that mi M stressed its own uselessness. The red book that cost $17. That dread- ed red book. Otherwise known as The Master Stu- dent, the red book is the text used for the second trial year of Freshman Seminar. Freshmen generally opposed the class, but knew little about its purpose. In fall 1984, students took a survey concerning Northwest ' s advising process. Because numerous students were dissatis- fied or confused with their adviser ' s re- sponsibilities, a program was established to better acquaint each student with his adviser. The new class was also intended to low- er the 40 percent attrition rate, to assist students in understanding the importance of a general education, and to teach them basic skills. " It was good for my GPA even if I learned nothing, " Chris Kolbe said. " It also gave me a good opportunity to get ac- quainted with my adviser instead of just having one appointed to me. I found class particularly boring, so I drew murals on my jeans with a ballpoint pen. Sometimes our class shared party spots with our adviser. " The class not only helped students be- come more familiar with their advisers, but the university as well. " I guess it helped me get familiar with campus, " Brian Hockenbury said. " However, I skipped class a lot and just asked friends what happened. I didn ' t like it. I ended up using my textbook for fire kindling. " Students received one credit hour for taking the course, but the class met more than one hour per week. Faculty Senate approved the class for one hour credit, but didn ' t approve some parts of class as valid academic credits. The responses from students and teachers were the basis fo r course content and requirement changes. For instance, students didn ' t like buying the textbook so coordinators are now debating whether to use The Master Student in the future or to write their own handbook. " The part I disliked was the red text- book. It labeled me as a freshman, " Erin McGivney said. " It was as if the upper- classmen outcast us. " Teachers ' and coordinators ' responses were positive. All 36 instructors recom- mended a continuation of the course. Dr. Roy Leeper, coordinator, seemed confident the class would help more in the future even though it takes several years to make a new program work. The most evident proof of its success was the 4 per- cent decrease in attrition from the previ- ous year. That dreaded red book could just be the key to more confident, well-informed students as well as a low dropout rate, or it could simply be a future fuel source for Maryville.D Cara Moore " The part I disliked was the red text- book.

" They saw their idols on record covers, in magazines and on tel- evision, but they couldn ' t help wonder- ing what the stars were like in person. Some had the chance to find out when Louise Mandrell and Berlin came to town. Everyone had expected Berlin ' s arrival, but Mandrell ' s appearance was somewhat of a surprise. Campus Activities Programmers had originally scheduled Tammy Wynette to perform, but when she entered a drug re- habilitation center, Mandrell stepped in. The resulting concert was a greater success than many people had expected. " There were people wh o were really skep- tical about it, " said Lori Thompson, CAPs vice president. Wendy Will, who attended the first of two performances by Mandrell in Mary Linn Per- forming Arts Center, said Mandrell ' s choice of music was one of the secrets to her success. " I think most people didn ' t want to go to it because they thought it would be just coun- try music, and it wasn ' t, " Will said. " She also sang pop and rock. " Mandrell did more than just sing. She also danced and performed on drums, keyboard, clarinet and fiddle. This versatile perfor- mance kindled the audience ' s enthusiasm and they responded by singing, clapping and stomping to the beat. " She was a good entertainer and not just a singer, " Doug Bushner said. " She related to the audience really well. " Mandrell interacted directly with the crowd, going into the audience to shake hands and telling stories about her family. At her second show, her husband and daugh- ter appeared. Berlin drummer Rob Brill sets the beat for Terri Nunn ' s exhilarating vocal performance. The band thrilled the audience with their rendition of " No More Words " . -Photo by Rich Abrahamson " 1 had a really good feeling when I walked out, " Richard Mace said. It was a feeling many had the opportunity to share. The first performance was sold out; the second crowd was smaller, but that didn ' t, seem to bother Mandrell. " For as small as the crowd was, she really went all out and gave a great performance, " Mace said. All too quickly, Mandrell was gone, leav- ing good memories behind. But there was more to come. A month later, the scene was somewhat different but no less enthusiastic. More than 1,000 clapping, screaming people crowded around the stage in Lamkin Gym to rock with Berlin. Berlin performed both new and old songs including " Take My Breath Away, " and " Sex " . In one of the highlights of the show, lead singer Terri Nunn, dressed in skin-tight black pants and a diamond necklace, climbed to the top of a large speaker to sing to the audience. " She had so much spunk, " Joed Trapp said. " It got you into the music more. " Like Mandrell, Berlin got many favorable reviews from fans who said they had a won- derful time. " I thought it was great because they played good dancing songs, " Trapp said. Some students had different opinions, however, expressing disappointment in some aspects of the performance. For example, The Front, which served as warm-up band, received mixed reviews. " I thought they were better because they rocked harder, " Steve Archer said. In addition, some complained the music was too loud and the crowd around the stage made it difficult to get up front. But others found a solution to that problem. " I was on somebody ' s shoulders, " Trapp said. " I saw everything. " Being temporarily higher up in the world helped her and others get a better look at those who seemed to always be up there. And some of them got a pleasant surprise. The stars were real people, not just faces in a magazine.

" Deanna Talbert Around the world Theatre sets the stage Count Dracula got out of his coffin, Monsieur Argan left his bed and even Santa Claus left the North Pole to make special appear- ances at Northwest. They weren ' t here to find blood donors. They weren ' t here to promote package tours of France and they certainly weren ' t here to recruit elves. They were here to entertain, courtesy of the Theatre Department and Alpha Psi Omega. Four programs were presented to the stu- dents at the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center and Charles Johnson Theatre. The productions were Dracula, Imaginary Invalid, The Toys Take Over Christmas and a series of one act plays. The first of the four productions was the one act plays. Student directed, the produc- tion consisted of six plays. The directors selected their own plays, held auditions and cast each play. Students who auditioned did so for all the plays. The directors worked together in deciding which student would play each role. One director, Deanna Talbert, and her cast of three practiced one month for their play, Laundry and Bourbon. This was Talbert ' s first directing experience. " I loved directing it, " Talbert said. " 1 took a script and brought it to life on the stage. " One of the difficulties in the production was scheduling and practicing with five other plays. Talbert said the directors learned to cooperate, took turns on the stage and respected the other groups ' practice times. Other one act plays included Tennessee, Death Watch, Pop People, Touch the Blue- bird ' s Song and Home for Hero. One of the cast memberrs in Home for Hero felt that his director, Denny Bowman, made the play more enjoyable by discussing the symbolism found thoughout it. " Our director understood the play, " Dave DeCamp said. " He was able to explain the symbolism. He asked us what we thought the symbolism was so we would understand the characters better. " Following the one act plays was a horror story that sent chills down the spines of the audience — Dracula. Special effects played an important role in the production. A coffin that rose from the ground and mysterious fog that moved slow- ly across the stage added to the horror of one of the world ' s most famous counts, Dracula. " There were a lot of special effects used that were different for Northwest; some had never been used before, " Jerry Joe Genochio said. If special effects weren ' t enough, a mid- night performance was offered to students. " That performance was advertised just for the campus residents, " Genochio said. " We had a full house. With the performance at midnight, people had a chance to go out and have fun before the show. The hearse parked in front added to the spookiness and craziness. " Because of an injury to another actor, Genochio received the role of Butterworth only five days before the production opened. From Transylvania, the Theatre Depart- ment traveled on to France and added great- er variety to their programs in the produc- tion of the Imaginary Invalid. Dr. Charles Schultz directed the play writ- ten by French playwright Moliere. The production was about Monsieur Argan who believed anything his doctors told him and did whatever they said. The comedy set in the 1 7th century satirized the hypocrisy of the medical profession. For the first time in 1 4 years, a classical play written by a world-famous writer was presented at Northwest, Schultz said. He also said the production was an enjoyable play with a strong underlying theme. -continued 46 Plays Quack Doctor Thomas McLaughlin searches aimlessly for patient Russell Williams ' pulse. -Photo by Chuck Holley In order to provide transportation service, apothecary Jerry Joe Genochio aides Dr. Jeff Haney into Monsieur Argan ' s living quarters. - Photo by Chuck Holley Introductions are in order when Abraham VanHelsing portrayed by Gerald Browning, meets a patient, played by Ted Thomas, at Dr. Seward ' s sanatorium.

" It was fun to take and good for you. " The biggest problem with the production, said Assistant Director Jill Leonard, was that the play was written and took place over 300 years ago. This was especially difficult for the construction of the sets. " Everything on the stage was made by the set crews, " Leonard said. " Two dresses had to be made from scratch. " Because of the problems encountered in trying to bring the 1 7th century to the stage, the directors considered making adjustments to the time period to give the play a more contemporary feel. " We thought about doing the play during the ' 30s, which would have made the con- struction and props easier to get a hold of, " Leonard said. " But we stuck with the origi- nal version and time period. " It seemed as though after all the kinks were worked out and sets were constructed the play was over. The sets they worked so hard on came down to make room for the next play, The Toys Take Over Christmas. The show was presented on campus in early December and performed in several area towns throughout the holiday season. No admission was charged; however, a $1 donation was taken. All of the proceeds from the production were given to the Daily Fo- rum Christmas Fund for Needy Families in Nodaway County. An annual tradition for the Theatre Department and Alpha Psi Omega, the Christmas play was about a greedy old toy- maker who had the power to make his toys move with the help of his magic doll dust. A contest between the toymaker and Santa Claus took place and the conclusion was left up to the audience. They had to decide whether Santa or the greedy old man with the dust was the best toymaker in the world. Not only was it an enjoyable play for the au- dience, but for the cast. " It was a blast, " Felicia Taylor said. " It was a really creative production. We were allowed to go and be our own characters. " Taylor also gave credit to the rest of the cast for the excitement and fun that was a part of the play. " The cast was wonderful, " Taylor said. " We were able to click together right off. That made the show go. " The cast wasn ' t the only thing that made the show go. There were the people who constructed sets, made costumes, took care of props and worked with the lights. In all the productions, the backstage crew played an important role in getting the plays in front of an audience. Not only were set people responsible for preparing for the play, but they also were responsible for putting every- thing away and getting ready for the next play after the final curtain call. The final curtain call was a moment that every production worked up to. For some it was a relief, for others a sad time. Then their work was finished and there was nothing to do but get ready for the next production. Amidst all the hugging, crying and good- byes stood three men: a tall man in a black cape, a small old Frenchman who com- plained about his sore neck and a round jol- ly old man who simply said, " Ho, Ho, Ho.

' All night long Procrastination can be eye opener J fter a hard day of school and work, I was ready for a night of relaxa- tion. I collapsed on the floor. My room- mate walked in to where I was sprawled and nudged my foot, bringing me back to reality. " Get up so you can get your story done, " she ordered. " What story? " I asked bewildered. " I don ' t have homework tonight. I ' m going straight to bed, after I lie here for awhile. " " Did you forget that yearbook article is due tomorrow? " my roommate patiently asked. 1 jumped up as if 1 had been shocked. " Oh, no. I completely forgot the feature about all- nighters is due by 8 a.m., " I exclaimed. " Well, at least you ' ll have first hand ex- perience, " laughed my roommate, as she sauntered to her room for a restful night ' s sleep. " Night, " she called back. 10:38 p.m. Reluctantly, I dragged myself to my room to change into some comfort- ble sweats. I avoided even a peek at my soft, inviting bed, realizing the temptation to just sack out was too great. 10:55 p.m. I decided drinking plenty of strong coffee would be the best way to stay awake. While a large pot was brewing, I placed my portable typewriter near a bright light, scooted a straight-backed chair to the desk and had lots of paper and white-out ready. With all the necessary props at hand, 1 still was missing the most important ele- ment: the constant flow of creative ideas. 1 1 :46 p.m. The coffee 1 so cleverly made to keep me awake was not doing its job, since I was feeling weary after five or six straight cups. " No wonder, " I said to myself. " My roommate bought decaffeinated coffee in- stead of regular. Maybe trips to the bathroom will keep me moving and alert. " 12:12 a.m. In hopes that a marvelous lead sentence would pop into my head, I decid- ed it wouldn ' t hurt to rest my sore eyes for a little while. 1:27 a.m. I awoke with a jolt, realizing with a moan that I had drifted. I also discovered a typewriter does not make a comfortable pil- low, unless you like typewriter keys indent- ed on your face. With half-hearted determination, I took a cold shower to revive. After I saw how 1 looked, blood-shot eyes, smeared make-up and unruly hair, I wished I could have just drown myself in the bathtub, and put an end to my agony. VOILA. Immediate inspiration hit me like a freight train. Why not write a story about staying up all night writing this yearbook ar- ticle. I felt rejuvenated and like a new woman. 3:10 a.m. Waves of drowsiness flooded my brain and I had to literally prop my eyes open. My brain kept saying, " 1 want to sleep. I want to sleep. I want to sleep. " Jerking my head up, since 1 almost nod- ded off, 1 needed something to help me stay conscious. I decided it was time for a desper- ate tactic, Vivarin. Popping pills was not my usual ritual for staying awake, but with my article nearly finished I had to polish it off with a spectacular closing. There were four Vivarin pills left in the bot- tle; I thought, " why not take them all? " Even though I was desperate, that was not a smart move. My eyes were bulging, my hands shak- ing, my heart pounding; I was a wreck. Instead of writing, I was willing and able to take on Jane Fonda ' s intensive aerobic work-out without quitting. Later, my mind and body collapsed from sheer exhaustion on the couch. Thank goodness the Vivarin wore off, or I might have killed myself with too much ex- ercise. I still had work to do. Hunger, though, consumed my thoughts and a food break was necessary. 6:08 a.m. After burning some bacon and making gooey eggs, I thought I ' d better fin- ish this story. Feeling like I had sawdust be- tween my ears, I decided the best way to end this story was to take the easy way out. With a stretch and a couple of huge yawns, I set- tled my head on folded arms on the desk. " G ' night, " I mumbled, to no one in particular.

" In the dorms I was really limited to how I could decorate the place, " Randy Wolf said. " Then I moved into the fraternity house and could decorate as I pleased. " The life of a commuter had its drawbacks though, they became familiar with new responsibilities not faced in the residence halls. " It was really fun being on my own, " Vanes- sa Maxwell said, " but I didn ' t like worrying about bills, dishes, cooking and grocery shopping. " The financial responsibilities seemed to be the biggest difference between on and off- campus living. " I had to make sure all the bills got paid, " Kardell said. " The phone, trash and electric bills were all my responsibility. When I was in the dorms, I ' d just send any bills I got to my mom. " To help keep costs down, roommates often shared expenses such as grocery shopping. " We split all the bills, " Kathy Baker said. " We also did a lot of coupon shopping and bought generic brands when we could. " Depending on where they lived, students diets varied greatly.

" It was easy to tell we were college stu- dents, " Baker said, " because we didn ' t have a kitchen table or chairs. Our furniture wasn ' t exactly garage sale stuff, but then again, most people wouldn ' t have wanted it in their homes either. " Many students elected not to hassle with off-campus housing, but rather chose to con- tinue living in the dorms. " I liked the fact that all my friends were close by, " Mickie Letzig said. " There was al- ways someone to talk to or something to do. " Being closer to campus facilities was another reason some enjoyed living in the dorms. " I liked living on-campus because my dorm was centrally located to the library, Ad- ministration Building, Student Union and Colden Hall, " Maxwell said.

With Northwest being lo- cated amidst a four- state region, many personalities were captured within its student body. Some distinct stereotypes were those of the " Aggies, " " foreigners, " " Greeks, " " GDI ' s, " " intellects " and the " jocks. " Students tended to stereotype each other according to what group they belonged to, but the importance of their existence always showed through. The stereotypical agriculture students, bet- ter known as " Aggies, " were country hicks whose presence could be smelled before be- ing seen. Their wardrobes consisted of a bright green " Aggie " jacket, a cowboy hat or feed cap, faded Levis and cowboy boots. Their Levis were held up with a genuine cowhide belt fastened by a large belt buck- le. On the rear pocket was a faded ring ex- posing the infamous Skoal can. " Aggies " knew how they were stereotyped and even though some fit the description, others defended their difference. " Agriculture is a business, not just a hob- by any more, " Gary Miller said. " We have to present ourselves well to others now, unlike how it used to be in the past. " " Aggies " weren ' t the only students heavi- ly stereotyped; foreign students fell victim to trite comments, too. The library tended to be the hangout for foreigners while they all lived at Horizon ' s West Apartments and worked at what used to be 7-Eleven. Although their place of em- ployment wasn ' t too impressive, students be- lieved their income was. Foreign students contributed to the edu- cation at Northwest by exposing students to Individualism is a unique aspect of Northwest, but sometimes it is overlooked by stereotyping different groups.

" I thought we brought a view of what life was like in the rest of the world, " Renzo Casil- lo said. " Americans didn ' t have to go to the rest of the world; we brought it to them. " Another group who students enjoyed stereotyping was the " Greeks. " Greeks ' top priorities were party, party, party and if there was any time left, they con- centrated on grades. Greeks lived and slept in the Bearcat Den for fear of losing their designated tables. The typical Greek clothing was either preppy or Greek letters from head to toe and color of clothing depended on what Greek organiza- tion the student belonged to. Joining a sorority gave women a sudden desire to clap hands, sing and love every- body, but being as active as the Greeks were, many positive aspects came about. " Greeks set a lot of the events that went on at Northwest, " Andy Shockley said. " They also showed good leadership qualities and organization skills. " The Greeks ' opposites were the indepen- dents, better known as GDI ' s. Like everyone else, GDI ' s didn ' t escape stereotyping. The GDI ' s were those who went to a frat party and asked what fraternity they were at since they couldn ' t read the Greek letters, and then asked where the beer was. GDI ' s wore shirts and letter jackets from their high school and if they got past that stage, they wore shirts advertising what dorm they hibernated in. While Greeks ' grade point point average ' s suffered from socializing, independents ' suffered from roadtripping home every weekend. Although students believed independents were outsiders and didn ' t belong to any or- ganizations, independents disagreed. " I had more time to devote to campus related activities such as Resident Assistant, Student Ambassadors and Sigma Society, " Lisa Lutes said. After the GDI ' s came the " intellects.

Although the Walkenhorst Brothers were at the peak of their career, he was discontented with the com- mercialism of their career. But in 1987, Bob Walkenhorst along with fellow alumnus Rich Ruth came storming back as two members of The Rainmakers. Last year they were Steve, Bob and Rich, a small group in Kansas City which was gain- ing notoriety. They added a new member and changed their name to The Rainmakers. The Rainmakers, who shocked some peo pie with their lyrics and at the same time made them think, achieved national recog nition through exposure on MTV and in Roll ing Stone, Time and Newsweek. Campus Activities Programmers spon sored the concert many students had hoped to see in early December until The Rainmak- ers postponed because of a European tour. The Rainmakers performed in the CJnion Ballroom, easily within the grasp of fans. (Jn fortunately, many students were unaware that the Kansas City rockers were perform ing on campus until just before the concert. When the concert started, the Ballroom wasn ' t quite half full. The only negative aspect of the concert seemed to be the lack of publicity about the famous Midwestern group, whose album was dubbed the " year ' s most exciting debut " by rock critic Bill Barol. But the small crowd didn ' t prevent those who were there from having a good time. " 1 thought it was really spectacular, " Amy Rice said.

Since the concert was held in the Ballroom, there was a unique interaction between The Rain- makers and their audience. -Photo by Nancy Meyer have shown up. " The Rainmakers didn ' t allow the low atten- dance to dampen their spirits and performed as though it were a full house. " The Rainmakers were really interested in the audience, " Jeff Adams said. " They shook hands and got involved. " Some students were surprised at the qual- ity of the performance. " The concert was a lot better than 1 had expected it would be, " Sassandra Terhune said. " It was great. " Bob Walkenhorst, lead singer and song- writer for The Rainmakers, even joked about performing in the Ballroom. " Last year we were in the Spanish Den, " Walkenhorst said. " And now we ' re in the Ballroom — I guess we ' re moving up. Maybe next year we ' ll be in Lamkin Gym. " Of course, Walkenhorst was familiar with the campus, since he graduated from North- west in 1979, with a degree in art. Rich Ruth, the bass guitarist for the group, also attend- ed college here. However, Walkenhorst was a little uneasy about performing at his alma mater. " I was nervous, " he said. " There ' s some- thing about anytime you go where you ' ve been before, like retracing your steps, places you ' ve played, people you knew and seeing things that were a part of your life a few years back; they were weird deja vu ' s.

Financial aid cut to the core o financial aid available " be- gan to sound like a broken record. It was not often the de- cisions made on Capitol Hill mattered much in the daily lives of Northwest students, but when Congress considered tightening federal financial aid requirements and doing away with some funds completely, it hit stu- dents where it hurt most, in their wallets. Students scrambled to offset the impend- ing cuts by pursuing every available financial aid source, while administrators searched for ways to retain the middle-class students who would have been hurt most by the cutbacks. The cuts were made in an attempt to meet the requirements of the Gramm-Rudman balanced budget law, and the Reagan ad- ministration had to perform some fiscal acro- batics in the 1988 budget. Financial aid was caught in the pinch. Some students felt as though they ' d had their pockets picked, but the stakes were much higher than petty theft. In fact, the administration proposed slash- ing student aid by 46 percent, a move that would have forced three million students off aid programs nationwide. Nearly half the stu- dents enrolled at Northwest received some form of federal financial aid, and over 1,000 were likely to be affected by the cuts. That possibility had both students and administra- tors worried. " The aid programs were expensive to ad- minister, and by doing away with them, they felt they were going to help balance the The detailed procedure of filling out financial aid forms benefited fewer people as a result of financial aid cuts. Reagan ' s proposal also made it difficult for students to receive grants and loans. -Photo illustration by Nancy Meyer budget, " said Jim Wyant, associate director of financial aid. " They didn ' t realize they were destroying the educational possibilities of many students in this country. " Even before the budget proposals were an- nounced in January, some students had felt the sting of financial aid rejection. Starting in October, new federally-funded Guaranteed Student Loans were available only to those students who demonstrated financial need. In the past, they had been used by students to fill the difference between the cost of edu- cation and the grants and scholarships they received. Several students were unable to return to the University for the spring semester be- cause of the unexpected cuts in GSLs, and Wyant said the toll might have been even more critical for fall 1987, when he predict- ed over 75 percent of the GSL recipients at Northwest would either see their loans cut or denied completely. Wyant applied the new GSL regulations to the 1985-86 data for Northwest and found that of the 1,460 applicants for loans, 216 would have been ineligible by the need- based standards, while 1,108 would have seen at least some alteration in the amounts of their GSLs. " I was positive many students would have to drop out of school or make different pri- ority choices with the implementation of the new GSL program alone, since it was based on need, " Wyant said. Administrators worried about the availabil- ity of GSLs, but were unsure whether it would mean an end to higher education for the Northwest students affected or simply a redirecting of financial priorities, cutting lux- uries for the sake of college. " I didn ' t know how many people really needed GSLs, " Wyant said. " Some took them because they were available. When the screws were tightened, I wasn ' t sure what would happen. 1 just told students they ' d bet- -•continued " I just told students they ' d better save every dime they could get their fingers on if they really wanted to go to school. " Jim Wyant Financial Aid 61 The Work Study program offers Cory O ' Brien an opportunity to help fund her educa- tion.

However, President Ronald Reagan ' s budg- et proposal jeopardized the Work Study program. -Photo by Nancy Meyer In preparing a financial aid package for prospective student Dawn Gowers, Counselor Dorie Schreck explains new aid eligibility require- ments. -Photo by Nancy Meyer i Can you spare me an education? ter save every dime they could get their fingers on if they really wanted to go to school. " Wyant and Dale Montague, director of en- rollment management, both worried the Rea- gan administration ' s proposals were misled in their concern for students undertaking sizable loans for higher education. " Perhaps they perceived a need to cut in- debtedness, but they threw the burden of in- debtedness onto groups that traditionally hadn ' t been able to handle it, " Montague said. He contended the federal loans were being cut from the middle-class students who had much lower default records than the lower- class students who were almost solely eligible for GSLs after the cutbacks. Northwest gradu- ates had one of the most impressive payback records on student loans of any institution in the country. While some worried about the possibilities of getting GSLs for the next semester, others contended with cuts in federal grants like Pell and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. Some students found they were unable to get Pell Grants and were disgruntled because friends who had entered college earlier with similar financial need received them. " My dad didn ' t make that much money, " Penni Dougherty said. " We just barely got by. Our house was paid for, though, so maybe they thought we didn ' t have a lot of payments going out. Still, I felt like we had to be right on the cutting point " That cutting point seemed to be getting even lower, with Reagan proposing cuts in Pell and SEOG again for fall. Wyant anticipated the government setting even harsher restrictions for all forms of aid. " I saw a trend of probably tightening up the qualification criteria, " Wyant said. " It didn ' t look quite as bad politically to tighten regulations so that people weren ' t qualifying as to say, ' We are going to cancel out this money, and even though you qualify, there is nothing to give you ' . " The Reagan administration could not get out of one of its proposed cuts so easily, however. In its call for the abolishment of the College Work Study Program, the proposal would have put 461 Northwest students out of work and forced the University to replace many of the workers at its own expense. Although he did not think Congress would pass the measure for the 1986-87 academic year, Montague felt that at least the Work Study portion would pass eventually. " That would have hurt schools more than students, " Montague said, pointing out that the University paid only 20 cents of every dollar students earned on Work Study. Students, too, questioned the sensibility of the Reagan ad- ministration ' s proposal. " I couldn ' t figure out why Reagan would want to cut Work Study and not something else, " said Chuck Pendleton, a lifeguard at Foster Aquatic Center paid through Work Study. " At least kids were working for their money that way. " Even if Work Study were available for fall 1987, the University planned to increase the number of regular pay jobs; even though over half the student jobs on campus were already paid through the institution. The administra- tion saw this as one way to compensate for the loss of federally-funded loans, grants and Work Study, and by increasing the employ- ment possibilities, they hoped to retain stu- dents already enrolled. The University conducted a survey in March to determine what workers could be employed in each academic department. The University also beefed up its institution- al scholarship plans to provide more money for students hurt by federal cuts. The Board of Regents increased the amount budgeted for academic, merit and performance scholarships by approximately 12 percent. One scholarship, the Land Heritage Grant, was designed for students whose families had suffered because of the crisis in the agricul- tural economy. " Although some of those families showed assets worth nearly half a million dollars, they might have been making no profit, " Montague said. " We disregarded those assets and looked at the bottom line. Federal programs did not. " One way or another, it looked as though stu- dents were going to have to work harder to fund their educations, as the broken record of " no aid available " became one of those songs students just couldn ' t get out of their heads, no matter how hard they tried. D Sfc MikeDunlap " I couldn ' t figure out why Reagan would want to cut Work Study and not some- thing else. At least kids were working for their money that way. " Chuck Pendleton 64 Slumlords m Renters beware Students learn the hard way fter the fresh- man year, many students awaited the chance to move into their first apartment. Freedom and the challenge of new responsibil- ities all enticed students to leave the campus domain. However, once students left the sheltered lifestyle of dorms, they sometimes encoun- tered a new found enemy. Slumlords. Unfortunately for student renters, some Maryville apartment owners fell into the slumlord category. These landlords were ir- responsible about repairs, refused to exter- minate and charged outrageous prices. As a general consensus most students didn ' t enjoy apartment hunting. It was hard work and at times it wasn ' t very pleasant. Some apartments were dirty while others had decrepit furniture. " I dreaded going out to look at apart- ments, " Julie Brown said. " The decent apart- ments were taken through word-of-mouth, and the rest were like slums. " Apartment hunting was just a taste of some of the problems that lay ahead. A few students had severe problems with their apartments. Broken windows, flooding, poor insulation and an invasion of roaches thrived in a couple of housing facilities. " I kept calling about everything, " Brown said. " But he would always explain his way out of it or would be so nice that I ' d forget my anger. " However, some students fought back. Repeated complaints or not paying rent sometimes got things accomplished or at least made students feel better. " I ' m sure the apartment was a safety haz- zard, " Chris Klinzman said. " But 1 fought back by withholding rent payments. " Some foreign students, however, did not know how to fight back. Landlords capital- ized on their lack of understanding lease con- tracts and refused to make apartments liva- ble for them. " The landlord was never there when some- thing came up, " Salleudin Hasnan said. " He didn ' t bother about the house, unless rent was due. " Students sometimes found it was easier to repair things themselves or just suffer. Poor insulation led to high heating bills and un- comfortable heat in the summer. " The heater did not work well and my housemates and 1 lived in the cold, " Hasnan said. " We had to wear jackets and sweaters to bed. " Several landlords seemed not to care about their renters, using deposits, leasing agreement and other things to their advantage. " Students gave a lot to Maryville, and many people appreciated them, but many used students for their own financial gain, " Klinzman said. " They had us where they wanted us. " But that wasn ' t always the case. There were also landlords who cared about the apartments they owned. Lawns were mowed and general repairs performed as necessary. They were helpful. " Everytime he picked up the rent, he asked if everything was all right, " Pam Gruver said. " He came right over if anything was broke down. " In hopes of preventing any problems stu- dent renters had with landlords a hearing was set up to propose a rental policy. Father Tom Hawkins, of Newman House, was the chair- man for the committee on the rental code. " I think it was up to the students to take an interest in protecting their own interests. " Hawkins said. " They needed to work together with their landlords. " Even though all student renters didn ' t en- counter slumlords, the problem still existed. The proposed code was a beginning to bridg- ing gaps between renters and owners. But for now, leasing an apartment was an extra responsibility. □ Lisa Helzer " The heater did not work well and my housemates and I lived in the cold. We had to wear jackets and sweaters to bed.

Well, they dug deep in their pockets for that lucky quarter, snapped the rubber band on a deck of cards or pulled out the Scruples game from underneath the bed. Many students thought games became more exciting and fun to play when a little alcohol was consumed to break down their opponents ' resistance. But it wasn ' t always a prerequisite to having a good time. The most popular drinking game was quarters. It was easy because all you need- ed was a glass, a quarter, luck and a little skill to win. However, those who lacked those qualities felt they were at a disadvantage. " I ' m lucky if I hit the cup twice out of 100 times, " Amy Kish said. " But I ' ve seen peo- ple never miss. " Some liked the challenge of quarters. " It was really fun to watch people ' s skill de- teriorate when they drank more as the game progressed, " Steve Miller said. Some students enjoyed watching others play the game. " I was really impressed with people who did things like rolling a quarter off their nose and still got it into the glass, " Kevin King said. Students also enjoyed card games like suck-and-blow, and up and down the river. In suck-and-blow students passed a card from person to person by inhaling the card to keep it against their mouth, and exhaling when passing the it to the other player ' s mouth. Whoever dropped the card had to take a drink, which made it more difficult. Red and black was a game in which two cards were layed out, while players guessed Mexican dice is one of many drinking games in which students try their luck. Jamie Reiff checks the dice before giving a number to her op- ponents. -Photo by Nancy Meyer whether they were red or black. Those who guessed incorrectly had to take a drink. Up and down the river also combined drinking and cards. Five cards were dealt face up to each player. If a card drawn from the deck matched one of those cards the player had to drink. " You can ' t become a whiz at it like you can with quarters, " Kish said. Students enjoyed Edgar and one brown bear because they became more fun as they progressed. Edgar required three empty glasses and three containing alcohol. Two people each took a quarter and tried to bounce it into the full glasses so the other person had to drink. In one brown bear, players had to say a phrase like " Six simple Simons sitting on a stone. " Those that couldn ' t had to drink. " It was more difficult to play after you drank the alcohol, " Miller said. Students also played board games like Scruples and Trivial Pursuit. Many thought Scruples was exciting be- cause it forced players to answer ethical questions like " If you saw a friend ' s diary would you read it? " " I liked to play games like Trivial Pursuit because they were entertaining and at the same time you could learn something that was interesting, " Ed White said. Students enjoyed poker because they could risk pocket money in hopes of gain- ing a large return, or at least breaking even. " I liked to play poker because it killed time and was a reason to get together with friends and talk, " Robin Throckmorton said. " Some- times I liked to substitute pennies or alcohol instead of using a lot of money. " Many students preferred more physical party games like Twister or beer baseball. " I like more physical games because you can release built up energy from the day, " Ronda Wolfe said.

" Faculty brats " often found that other stu- dents held distorted views of what it was like to have a parent as a teacher. Some students felt faculty kids would have an edge on other students. " Everybody thought he was going to give me an ' A ' , " said Karin Herauf, who took Hu- man Sexuality class from her father, Dr. James Herauf. Doug Kelly, son of Dr. Alfred Kelly, said some students offered him money for an- swers to test questions. However, others thought it would be difficult to have a parent as a teacher. " I thought it would be harder for them as students than it would have been for anybody else, " Holly Larson said. " They would have expected more from you than they did from anyone else. You also got it at home as well as at school. " In addition, other faculty members expect- ed the students to act like their parents. " It kind of made me a little nervous that I had to live up to their expectations as Dr. Herauf ' s daughter, " Herauf said. The reality of being a faculty brat was a little different than the myths, however. Most students had no advantages academ- ically. Kelly, for instance, had no access to his father ' s test questions. " I did know how he prepared his test or where he pulled the questions from, " he said. But his father gave the whole class that information.

" They had to do their stuff just like any- one else. I had to make sure they never found out anything, " he said, referring to test ques- tions and future assignments. " I just tried to pretend they weren ' t there. " An advantage students mentioned was having their parents available to answer ques- tions and to help out if problems developed. " When there were things you didn ' t under- stand, he knew the university better than any student did, " said Amy Gose, daughter of Warren Gose. " If I had a question I went to him and he helped me straighten it out. " This was especially true for students whose parents were their advisers. Students and teachers said knowing the student and the university helped parents advise their children. As Kelly said of his father, " He already knew my goals and he helped put me on the right path because he had already been through the classes. " Despite these advantages, several found that being a faculty kid could create problems as well as solving them. One problem was that several students had to hear their parent criticized. Jones heard one student say he ' d like to take a shotgun to her father, while Pete Gose felt he was treated unfairly by a teacher who disliked the administration. Several students said they learned about their parents as well as from them. " I saw him in a different light, " Jones said. " It showed me a part of him I ' d never seen before. " For some faculty brats, school life occa- sionally spilled over into home life. Gose said his father sometimes tried his quizzes out on him before taking them to the class. On the other hand, Herauf said school came up at home if her mother asked about it. Otherwise, she said they talked of school only in a general way.

" Teresea Morris 70 Religion Religious independence Hf Students choose for themselves Too many decisions: what to wear, what to eat, whether to go to class, where to go and when to come home. One of the biggest de- cisions students dealt with was religion. They had the freedom to continue their reli- gious practices, to stop them or to choose different ones. Students out on their own for the first time approached this problem sooner or later; usually whenever Sunday rolled around. Stu- dents not only faced the decision of whether they should go to church, as many did when they lived with their parents, but whether they should try a different religion altogether. Students ' religious practices varied. Some came from a strong religious background, while for others it only played a small role in their lives. Those from strong backgrounds usually had parents who pressured them to attend church. On the other hand, other parents only in- troduced their children to religion, letting them decide which denomination, if any, would help them mature spiritually. " Before college, I usually went to church once a month, " Scott Reed said. " My parents didn ' t force me to go. If there wasn ' t anything to do or if I felt like going, 1 would go to church. " Students raised by parents who did not emphasize religion said they still believed in God. They felt they had a relationship with him, but one less formal than those who at- tended church regularly. " My parents introduced me to religion, but never forced it on me, " Kalynn Vernick said. " I was glad that 1 was brought up that way. " Some students felt it was hard to be reli- gious on campus. Jerry Benavente said it was hard for him to continue his religious practices because there was no one to make him go to church. " At home, I had no problem getting to church on time because my parents made sure I got there, " he said. " But in college, no one was on my case. Sure I could set my alarm clock, but it was just as easy to turn it off as it was to turn on. " Don Ehlers, co-director of the Wesley Center, said some of the reasons students stopped going to church were because they lacked parental structure, wanted to try new things or felt their religion didn ' t meet their needs. Students who continued to attend church felt they made the right choice and were hap- py with it. " I wouldn ' t have to set my alarm clock if 1 didn ' t want to go to church, " Teresea Mor- ris said. " I could have just slept in. " Other students thought religion played a minor role. Greg Smith said it was probably because of restrictions religion placed on cer- tain things. " A lot of religions were very negative, " Carolyn Winston said. " I didn ' t like the rules they put on people like eating certain foods. I didn ' t believe in the institution of the religion or church. I did believe in fellowship and Christian atmosphere. " Before starting college, Winston visited other churches besides her own church. An example was Zen, a section of the Buddhist religion. For a while, she was backsliding. " Backsliding was taking for granted, ignor- ing or turning away from God, " she said. Winston decided to try a different religion. In fact, she tried almost all of them. She liked to " church hop. " Winston went to different churches from time to time and learned more about herself and God. " 1 attended a Bible study group, that put me more into a relationship with the Bible and God, " she said. So there are many ways to have a relation- ship with God. As adults, students had the freedom to choose whatever they thought was right. It was up to them. It might have been one of the most important decisions of their lives.

New players and inex- perience in key positions made it a season to grow on. [ 2 Individual Sports Whether it was for fitness or fun, stu- dents found a physical outlet with various individual sports. From rac- quetball to whiffleball, people just wanted to have fun. ' New beginning ' falls short ■ nconsistency plagues ' Cats Appropriately, Coach Jim Johnson dubbed the season ' s theme as the " new beginning " as the Bearcats replaced three coaches, returned only a hand- ful of players and sported new uni- forms. However, inconsistency, inju- ries and an unfamiliar roster held the ' Cats to a 14-23 record and a fourth place finish in the MIAA. " We could never put together four or five wins in a row, " Brian Hetland said. " We ' d have two good games and then one bad one. " Johnson narrowed the problem of inconsistency to mainly the pitching staff. " The main thing was our pitching staff lacked consistency, " Johnson said. " Early in the season we gave up a lot of walks. Every time you walked the lead off man, he had a 70 per- cent chance of scoring-you just can ' t do that in college ball. " Raw talent never seemed to be in question, but rather the ability to uti- lize and perform. " We had good talent to win, " Jon Baldwin said, " but mental mistakes were costly. Errors and walks at key times just added up. " Injuries and sore arms plagued nearly every team in the country and Northwest was no exception. " Injuries hurt us, " Chris Allen said. " We also had a lot of sore arms, which really became a factor in close play situations. " To complicate matters, Northwest endured the season with only four starting pitchers, which some felt took its toll on the staff. " One thing that I thought really hurt us was not having fresh arms on the hill, " Allen said. The roster was full of new names as only four players from last year returned. " Only a few of us were here last year, " Hetland said. " That was a big part of our inconsistency. Most of the guys were junior college transfers. " The daily routine of the Northwest ballplayer was ever-changing as Johnson altered his practice times, strength program, coaching staff and general practice itinerary. " Every year we kept doing things differently until we got it right, " Johnson said. " Nothing we did was chiseled in granite. We felt that sometimes changes were nec- essary. " Probably the most obvious changes were the decrease in 5 a.m. practices and an adjustment in the weight program. " We didn ' t have as many morning practices, " Mark Roggy said. " And this boosted everyone ' s attitude. Also, our weight program was a lot better, as there was more emphasis placed on strength and less on conditioning. " The strength program was a great asset according to Johnson. " Everyone Of our non-pitchers im- proved his upper body strength by a minimum of 1 5 percent, " Johnson said.

Unfortunately, inconsistency reared its head and Northwest dropped both games in the last innings. " We should have won the confer- ence championship, " Johnson said. " That ' s as simple as I can make it. It all came down to one day. We dropped from the best team in the conference, in my opinion, down to the fourth best because of two, nine- inning displays of not playing good baseball. " Northwest had comfortable leads in the late innings in both games, but came up short to both SEMSU and UMSL. " We had UMSL down four runs going into the bottom of the ninth inning, " Johnson said. " We gave up five runs in the bottom of the ninth, so we went to the loser ' s bracket. The same thing happened against SEMSU. We had them down two runs and lost in the bottom of the ninth. " Neither players nor coaches could offer valid reasons for a team of Northwest ' s caliber to Finish as it did. " Our guys were sound fundamen- tally, " Johnson said. " Sometimes I really believed there was a break in the game where luck and intangibles came into play. " We felt that through our hitting efforts we were a much more solid ballclub than we ' d ever been before as hitters--not long ball (homerun) hitters, but consistent contact-type hitters; yet the ground balls were hit and they were caught, " Johnson said. " The line drives were hit, and they were caught. I have no answer. " Despite the record, the players felt they gave 100 percent. " The atmosphere was tense, " Al- len said. " We gave it all we had, but we just couldn ' t come through. " □ Pat Schleeter " The atmos- phere was tense. We gave it all we had, but we just couldn ' t come through.

The ' Kitten ' s .239 team batting average was 33 points higher than their opponent ' s .206 average; yet Northwest couldn ' t seem to clear the bases when they needed to. The ' Kittens 317 runners left on base was con- siderably higher than their oppo- nent ' s 260. " We lost a lot of close games be- cause we left so many runners on base, " Shelly Navara said. " All those one-run losses really hurt us. " On April 17, the ' Kittens beat Northeast Missouri State University in a doubleheader to tie a school record with 26 single-season wins. The ' Kittens then went on to a 34-18 record. Softball. FRONT ROW: Kathy Park, Shari Meyer, Cathy Varnum, Denise Miller, Michelle Miller and Kathy Kelsey.

" D Beth Schuelen and Pat Schleeter Softball More than self-defense astering martial arts Some students complained they were out of shape. Others felt intimidated by those big- ger than themselves. Still others lacked confidence, poise and toleration. And then there were the other students: the ones who studied the martial arts. Students had two styles of self- defense classes available to them. On campus, in the form of the Northwest Martial Arts Club or PE 118 course, students learned a mili- tary police style of karate taught by Dr. Christopher Kemp. Kemp was a Green Beret with the Special Forces and a black belt in karate (fifth degree), jujitsu (second degree) and judo (first degree). The other organization which at- tracted many students, but was not affiliated with the university was in- structed by third degree black belt, David Duvall. His class studied the Korean art or way of coordinated power. Hap ki do and the style of martial arts varied greatly in theory as well as style. " What I taught was designed for defending yourself in a real situation where someone was trying to hurt you, " Kemp said. " It wasn ' t necessar- ily concerned with mastery of the art. " Students came to Kemp for a bas- ic knowledge of self-defense and hand-to-hand combat, but he said they learned more than just that. " The martial arts built confidence, security and a feeling of poise, " Kemp said. Progress in the club was marked by colored belts the students wore. Beginners wore white and following the first promotion, yellow. Green and three degrees of brown were next before black belt was achieved. To obtain the next belt, students had to demonstrate their wasas-a series of predetermined blocks, blows, holds and kicks used to counter an attack. Although the style Kemp taught was a defense-minded one, it was also very direct and aggressive. " Your best defense was a good offense, " Joe McMillen said. " In other words, when you were at- tacked, you reversed the roles and you, as the would-be victim, became the attacker. " While Dr. Kemp was teaching wa- sas in Lamkin Gymnasium, David Duvall was teaching sulgi in the Maryville High School multi-purpose building. In 1979, Duvall held his first hap ki do class. Only six students partic- ipated. However since then, the numbers have jumped to about 50, and the Yu ' s Academy (St. Joseph) branch in Maryville continued to grow. The art itself allowed the victim several options not always available with other martial arts. " Hap ki do was a diversified art, " Andy McEvoy said. " There were a lot of options available to you. Probably the neatest thing was having the abil- ity to stop and control someone without doing physical damage; hap ki do allowed you the option to rea- son first. " Martial arts weren ' t just for males, as several females were involved in both karate and hap ki do. " Women did it as easily as the men because it was coordinated power- -we used the attackers size and weight against him, " Stacey McEvoy said. Hap ki do met twice a week for practice, but by no means did it end there. " Hap ki do carried over to other aspects of life, " Eric Hopkins said. " You got dedicated to other things like school work and your job. You developed a kind of never say die attitude. " A long time student of Master Chan Yu, Duvall credited him for where he and the school had progressed. " What Master Yu had done for me--l just hoped I could pass a little on to others, " Duvall said.D Pat Schleeter " When you were attacked, you reversed the roles and you, as the would-be vic- tim, became the attacker.

Then, drugs entered their lives. For some, their careers would come to a screeching halt. Others paid with their lives. The presence of drugs in sports became a wide-spread problem, and as the list of athletes using illegal drugs appeared to be growing, so did the efforts to stop them. The most recent efforts to stop drugs in sports featured a drug test- ing wave, the push by several mem- bers of Congress for anti-drug bills and TV spots, featuring prominent athletes urging people to stay away from drugs. While the general atti- tude favored a drug-free sports world, the concept of drug testing created a great deal of controversy. This year marked the first year the National Collegiate Athletic Associ- ation began testing all participants in the 73 NCAA championship games. Northwest Head Athletic Trainer Dave Colt was unsure whether ath- letes at the college level should have been tested and singled out among other groups. " If a university was concerned with students, they needed to be concerned with all students, " Colt said. " Why just student athletes? " Another argument by fans, as well as players and coaches, was that drug testing violated the rights of those tested. " I was tested in the Air Force, " Scott Danner said. " It wasn ' t fair for them to test us. Nor was it fair for athletes to be tested. It was an in- fringement on our personal rights. " " If a university was concerned with students, they needed to be concerned with all stu- dents. Why just student athletes? " Dave Colt The NCAA ' s main concern was recreational drugs, such as cocaine and marijuana, but steroids also be- came a concern to them. The presence of steroids in ath- letics made an appearance in col- lege ' s post-season bowl competi- tion. Twenty-one players were declared ineligible to participate and were suspended for 90 days for hav- ing had steroids in their system. Is it possible to rid the sports world of drugs? Some felt steps were being taken in the right direc- tion, but something was still lacking. " I didn ' t think all the deaths and suspensions would have an effect on those using drugs until an education campaign was undertaken that let the people know what these drugs were all about, " Mark Wallace said. One such campaign was in its in- itial stages at Northwest. A commit- tee was being formed to educate students about drugs as well as help those students in need. Among the committee members were Gus Rischer, chairman of the Psychology Department; Dr. Desmi- on Dizney, director of the Health Center and Sherri Reeves, as sistant athletic director. The committee hoped to have its program set up by fall 1987. " I think we ' d be kidding ourselves if we said there were no abuses on our campus, " Dean of Students Phil Hayes said. " I thought there were al- coholics. I thought there were peo- ple that were probably pretty heavi- ly into drugs. So I thought the need was there. " Whether the concept of a drug- free world of sports was feasible re- mained to be seen, but the tide was clearly turning in that direction.

An unusually young team was the cause of speculation, but all doubt was soon erased as the ' Kittens posted the best dual record in the team ' s histo- ry and finished second in the MIAA, also the team ' s highest finish. " We had two freshmen playing the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, so that left a lot of people unsure, " Jill Perrin said. " But in the end, I guess we proved ourselves. " Another factor in the team ' s suc- cess was the relaxed atmosphere created by players and coaches. " We just relaxed and had fun when we played, " Perrin said. " We loved the game but we didn ' t live and breathe tennis. This attitude really helped us play better. " The improved attitude caused a unity which carried on even after practices were over. " We had a small team (eight), " Cathi Jones said, " and we were like a family. At times we would just keep playing after practice because it was so much fun.

" We had four freshmen out of six, " Coach Mark Rosewell said. " So you can see, we were very young. " Despite their youth, the team felt it was simply tennis experience and not college tennis experience that constituted a successful season. " Even though four of us were freshmen, " Rob Veasey said, " most had a really good tennis background from high school play and tourna- ments. It really didn ' t matter that we were young.

Tennis 89 I ■I Former ' Cats make it big eading for the top Throughout the years, Nor thwest produced some top-quality athletes. While m ost sports careers ended af ■ ter college, a select few have beat- en the odds and signed profession- al contracts. Possibly the most famous player to attend Northwest was Minnesota Twins ' third baseman Gary Gaetti. Drafted in 1 979, Gaetti was unable to graduate, but did manage to help the ' Cats clinch the MIAA Northern Division Championship and a second-place MIAA finish. " 1 learned more about baseball and how to play in those two years at Northwest than in my entire life, " Gaetti said. " 1 have to contribute a lot of my success to then Northwest Coach Jim Wasem. " Gaetti was acquired by the Twins in the first-round secondary draft. Never having played AAA-division baseball, Gaetti was called up from AA Orlando to the Minnesota club midway through the 1981 season. In his first major league at bat, Gaetti hit a 1-1 Charlie Hough pitch, driv- ing it over the wall for a home run. Shortly after Gary Gaetti left Northwest, Tom Funk arrived. The left-handed pitcher hurled for the ' Cats from 1981 until 1983, when he was drafted by the Houston As- tros. During his years at Northwest, Funk compiled an 18-11 record. Funk spent three years playing A- ball in Auburn, N.Y., before he moved up to AA-ball in Columbia of the Southern League. There he threw short relief and posted a 4-2 record with six saves. The Houston Astros were in the middle of a pennant race and need- ed short relief pitching. Funk ' s stay lasted from July 26 to August 27, and although he posted no decisions or saves, he impressed many with his pitching abilities. " I put all my eggs in one basket, then when 1 got cut, 1 thought it was over. For- tunately, I got a second chance. " Steve Savard Because of his pitching style, Todd Frowirth was often compared to Dan Quisenberry and Kent Tekulve. Frowirth was a right- handed hurler on the Philadelphia Phillies 40-man roster. According to Frowirth, North- west ' s Pitching Coach Bob Lord and Head Coach Jim Johnson deserved partial credit for his success. " I learned a lot about pitching mechanics, and getting the most out of my pitches, " Frowith said. Throughout his career, Frowirth ' s unique side-arm or submarine deliv- ery gained him success. His first year in A-ball he posted an 8-5 record, with a 2.20 ERA. He also led the Carolina League in saves (18) and games pitched, while earn- ing the Rolaids Relief Man Award. The most recent ' Cat to get a shot at the big leagues was linebacker Steve Savard, who signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys. Savard, two-time Ail-American and three-time team captain, played for Northwest from 1982-85, where he helped the ' Cats clinch the MIAA Championship (1984) and a nation- al playoff berth. On April 30, 1 985 Savard signed his contract with the Cowboys. He then proceeded to complete six weeks of intense training with the team, only to be cut two weeks be- fore the season ' s start. " I put all my eggs in one basket, " Savard said. " Then when 1 got cut, 1 thought it was over. Fortunately, I got a second chance. " The second chance referred to was his re-signing in December. Whether or not the success of these former athletes would con- tinue remained to be seen, their ac- complishments so far were impres- sive.

They ' ll probably keep doing it too. It seemed Northwe st fans were constant- ly comparing the football team to the 1984 MIAA championship club. While their records were obvious- ly different and criticism and lack of fan support ran rampid, some saw this team equally as talented and motivated as the ' 84 team. To them, the ' Cats simply lacked a break here and there. " I think back to when we were 10-2 in 1984, when we got a lot of breaks and won a lot of games in the last minutes, " Brad Rischer said. " We never got those breaks this year. I can remember several games where we lost the game in the last 30 se- conds. 1 really think it all comes down to what year you ' re going to get lucky. " According to players and coaches, the 2-9 record was not reflective of the season. The ' Cats lost several games by a field goal or less and on a few occasions had the lead until the final minutes or seconds. " It was very discouraging to be 2-9, " said Vern Thomsen, head coach. " We lost four very close ball games that could have gone either way. We could have just as well been 7-4 or 8-3. " Aside from uncontrollable breaks and luck, what was different from the 1984 season? Everyone had their philosophies, but the bottom line came down to another uncon- trollable factor — Mother Nature. " That (weather conditions) was probably the single-most deciding factor in our win-loss and point scor- ing capabilities, " John Grispon said. " Our offensive linemen were geared more for the pass, but because of Football Overall record 2-9 N. Dakota 38-28 Washburn 24-38 MO Western 26-27 Wisc.

" John Grispon weather conditions, t hat was almost impossible to do. " The ' Cats liked to throw the ball and the muddy, rainy conditions they faced throughout the season hampered their passing attack. Forced to move away from the pass, Northwest went to its rushing game, which averaged a mere 2.9 yards per carry (compared to their opponents ' 3.7). Another factor for the sub-par season that couldn ' t be overlooked was the tough schedule Northwest played. The ' Cats no longer played teams like Tarkio and Emporia State, as they once did. Those teams were replaced with Division I-AA schools Illinois State and Western Illinois. Also proving to be tough competi- tion were Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Washburn, who saw playoff ac- tion. These non-conference games, combined with an already tough MIAA schedule, made for a challenging season. " I believe the whole team thought it was a great opportunity to play this kind of schedule, " Tim Bob Kits- miller said. " We were a Division II school and we were getting to play teams with a name. Who wants to play easy teams? Anybody could beat Tarkio. " While playing larger schools helped establish the football pro- gram, some players had other rea- sons for enjoying the tougher competition. " Through the years, it had always been an enjoyment to beat the big- ger schools, " Brad Rischer said. " It gave us a sense of pride to beat a team who said we were not good enough to play for their team. " That sense of pride was evident, even with a 2-9 record.

Injuries took their toll on Northwest, as several key players were hurt during the year. - Photo by Scott Trunkhill Football Injuries hinder attack coaches, the team practiced and played as hard as the ' 84 club. " The team had a good attitude, " Coach Brad Sullivan said. " The way they practiced and went out and played, you couldn ' t tell they were losing. " The ' Cats ' determination con- tinued throughout the season, ac- cording to linebacker Colin Reese. The team never gave up, but fought hard until the last game. " We always went into every game thinking we were going to win, " Reese said. " We worked hard through every practice. Nobody had his head down. " Next season appears brighter for the ' Cats due to some key recruiting and the number of returning players. According to Thomsen, this year ' s team was loaded with talent, but be- cause they had few seniors, they lacked experience. " You don ' t win many conference championships with underclass- men, " Thomsen said. " You looked at teams who won championships and they were generally senior dominat- ed teams. We were junior- dominated. We didn ' t have the senior leadership that could have been there. " With the season ' s end came the period of recruiting and preparing for the upcoming season. Accom- panying this period came a con- troversy which all coll ege athletic programs faced — junior college recruits vs. incoming freshmen. Coaches had to choose between junior college players, who had ex- perience under their belts, but who would be gone as quickly as they came, or they could opt to pick in- coming freshmen, who couldn ' t con- tribute right away. " They brought the junior college guys in and they ' re experienced, " Sullivan said. " When you needed help right away, you had to have someone who could step in and play. Why not go junior college? It made sense. " Some of the players felt coming up through the system was a benefit and it made the team a tightly knit group. " You had to have a solid nucleus of four-year players, who had seen the good and the bad, " Kitsmiller said. " This gave the team that cohe- siveness that made it close. " Another factor the coaching staff had to consider was the ineligibility rule. This rule required players to have a 2.0 gpa to participate in ath- letics. Unfortunately, this rule took its toll on the ' Cats, as seven players were lost to it, one of whom was 10th in the nation in kickoff returns last year. " We lost four guys that would have started the North Dakota game, " Sullivan said. " It definitely hurt us at the start of the year. " Despite the loss of key players to ineligibility and injury, tough scheduling, inclement weather and simple bad luck, Thomsen made no excuses. Looking toward the future, he believed the ' Cats will be a differ- ent team in ' 87, but also felt the ' 86 club wasn ' t as bad as the record indicated. " We played very well, " Thomsen said. " We were so close, but so far. " Grispon agreed the 2-9 record was not indicative of the type of team they had. " I ' d go so far as to say that we were probably the best 2-9 ball club i n Division II. " D Pat Schleeter " It was very disappointing to be 2-9. We lost four games that could have gone either way. We could have just as well been 7-4 or 8-3. " Vern Thomsen Football Finding some running room, tailba Alton Long gets outside on a sweep play.

" Another factor Alsup found both helpful and harmful was the in- dividuality in competition. " I think it was more a season of surprises and attainments by in- dividuals in a team sport, " Alsup said, " which was good and bad. " He said it wasn ' t because the run- ners were concerned only with themselves, but that so many inju- ries kept them from being a team. A prominent runner for the men this season, Mark VanSickle helped the team finish eighth at regionals. VanSickle, dealt with a bad ankle early on, and found the season to be disappointing at times, but felt the team ran well considering their lack of depth. Cross Country.

" It wasn ' t just injuries, " Alsup said. " It was the fact that we didn ' t have the depth to take care of filling in af- ter the injuries. It was the same with the women. " The women placed fifth at region- als. Like the men, they were bogged down with injuries which sometimes left them without enough runners for a team. Lisa Basich received all-MIAA honors for placing ninth. This was her second year to receive the honor. " Basich had probably the most consistent and impressive season she ' s ever had and probably the most impressive of any of the wom- en, " Alsup said. " She also finished first for us in all but one meet. " Two other strong runners for the women were Cherie King and Julie Carl. " King trained consistently and ran consistently. She probably had the most impressive finale of anyone, " Alsup said. " She finished 1 9th in the regional meet. " King was the top runner for the ' Kittens in regionals and felt she ran a mentally tough race. Carl, another inspirational runner for the team, showed leadership and running ability even though she did not meet her personal expectations. " I think we could have placed higher because I didn ' t really come on until the end of the season, " Carl said. " I know I wasn ' t prepared when I came into the season so that made a difference.

" I felt we had a good enough team, had they been healthy all year long, we may have been more of a contender in conference and region- als, " Alsup said.

The players — nicknamed " Bag " , " Bondo " and " Jill Bob " to name a few, were uniquely close, both on and off the court. The somewhat rocky season pulled them even closer together. " I know that the team members are a lot of the reason that so many people stuck it out for so long, " Jodi Brady said. The ' Kittens suffered a disappoint- ing 12-28 record, a 5th place MIAA finish and, for the first time ever, failed to have a representative on the all-MIAA team. " We set goals at the beginning of Volleyball. FRONT ROW: Coach Cathie Schulte, Nancy Pfeifler, Kelly Cox and Kim Pfannkuch.

" Those goals included a repeat 2nd place conference finish, a record better than .500 and strong finishes in tournaments. According to many of the players, the cause of the atypical season was lack of direction and leadership. " We didn ' t feel like we had any leadership and we felt like we were coaching ourselves, " one player said. " We ' d look for information or sug- gestions on how we were doing, and they just weren ' t coming. " Most of the team believed their ta- lents were never refined and they never played up to their potential. " She (the coach) didn ' t bring out our talent, " Sus ie Thomas said. Some of the girls believed the plays and game strategy also con- tributed to the losing season. " I ' m sure part of it was the team ' s fault in general, " Brady said. " But I think most of it was because we didn ' t play a very technical game. In- stead, we played a very basic game that you can ' t play on a college level. " Coach Cathie Schulte felt that her being new to Northwest could have been a factor. " Any time you were a first or se- cond year coach, there was still that transition period, " Schulte said. " It takes awhile to adjust to each other. " Another contributing factor ac- cording to Schulte was the level of competition the ' Kittens played. They played several teams ranked in Division II, as well as quite a few Di- vision I teams. " We have to do just like any other team that ' s been on a tough season, " Schulte said. " We ' ll just forget it, learn what we can from it, persevere and decide that things are gonna go better next year.

" Our season had its ups and downs and it was packed with lots of emotion, " Coach Lionel Sinn said. " We had a 19-10 record with a difficult schedule and an MIAA championship. I was proud of what we accomplished. " An MIAA championship was the main goal for the ' Cats. Toward the end of the season, that goal became a reality as they clinched a portion of the conference championship by beating the University of Missouri- Rolla at Rolla. The team later learned that Lincoln University had lost to Southeast Missouri State University giving the ' Cats sole posession of the conference title. " The feeling was indescribable, " Sinn said. " It was a reward to win the conference title. In the last eight years, we finished second three times, and third twice. It was a big accomplishment for both the Bear- cat basketball program and for the school. " It was in 1940 that the ' Cats won the conference last, but this season proved different. " It was a great feeling to be con- ference champs, " Bob Sundell said. " We set our goal to be contenders in the conference, and we ended up winning it. It was good to see that our hard work and dedication paid off. " Another milestone was passed on January 28. The Bearcats beat Rolla with a score of 96-87 at Northwest M.

He finished the season with a cumula- tive record of 145-82. " It was an awesome accomplish- ment, " Sinn said. " It was a record I ' m sure will be broken later. I saw the record as an indication of myself be- ing around for a while. It didn ' t mean I was the best coach, but I stuck around long enough to surpass a record. It was nice to have been a part of history. " A balanced attack led the ' Cats to 19 wins this season. Key factors in this attack ranged from good recruit- ing and superior bench depth to heavy scoring from the starting front line. " We had a balanced team attack, " Sinn said. " We had five guys finish- ing in double figures, which is very --continued " It was nice to have been a part of history. " Lionel Sinn Men ' s Basketball.

Glenn Phil- lips led our scoring output and Jeff Hutcheon had an excellent sopho- more year. Tony Hoke had an out- standing February and Gerald Har- ris hit clutch shots when we needed them. Bob Sundell also helped us with his defensive output. " Though the five starters led a well balanced scoring attack, many play- ers came off the bench to key ' Cat victories. " We had two seniors, Scott Cal- caterra and Kenny Wysinger, who didn ' t mind coming off the bench, " Sinn said. " They knew their roles and helped us a lot. We also had a lot of bench depth. Guys with no publicity or glory got just as much of the credit for our victories too. " Team success also went to well- rounded recruiting. Junior college transfer Tony Hoke started 23 games for the Bearcats this season, and transfer Bob Sundell, in Sinn ' s view, was one of the best Division II defensive players in the country. Also, freshmen Scott Simmons and Larry Williams played important roles by coming off the bench and helping the Bearcat attack. " I thought we recruited well be- cause we added many key players to our program and much depth to our team, " Sinn said. Another aspect of Bearcat victo- ries was the addition of the three- point shot. This shot helped the scoring output of the team. " We were a statistically average three-point shooting team, " Sinn stated. " I liked the idea, but I did not want us to use it as a weapon until " We were very close on and off the court. " i Glen Phillips we could have at least 40 percent, and as a team, we shot 36 percent. " But this shot helped the Bearcats pull out close wins in games they would have otherwise been counted out of. " We did get some clutch shots out of it, " Sinn said. " It sometimes helped us come from behind to win or tie games. We were very fortunate that it helped us win some ball- games we might not have won otherwise. " Accumulating victory upon victo- ry, the Bearcats received numerous honors. The Bearcats placed Glenn Phillips on the pre-season NCAA Di- vision II All-American third team. Phillips later received all-MlAA first team honors. " It was great to be honored, " Glenn Phillips said. " It was great to be recognized as one of the top five players in the conference. " - Also gaining conference mention was Gerald Harris, Tony Hoke, Jeff Hutcheon and Bob Sundell. In addi- tion Sinn recieved the honor of Coach-of-the-Year in the MIAA conference. " He deserved the award, " Phillips said. " He worked hard with us, and it finally paid off for him. " MDn and off the court, teammate relations were very close, and Sinn helped accomplish unity among the players. " We were very close on and off the court, " Phillips said. " We were very concerned for one another and supported each other in whatever we did. " D Eric Chilcoat Men ' s Basketball ' Kittens finish third low conference start The Bearkittens opened the season with the idea that it would be a rebuilding year; however, at the end of the sea- son they boasted a third-place MIAA finish. When conference play started, the ' Kittens lost their first three games. After the three conference losses, they were 7-7 overall. At this point, the big question was why they were not winning. " We couldn ' t figure out why we were losing, " Kelly Leintz said. " We all thought we were playing some pretty good basketball. " The three conference losses struck some concern with Coach Wayne Winstead, but he felt there was no need to panic. " We had a long talk after our third conference loss, " Winstead said. " I told the ladies I hadn ' t lost confi- dence in them or our chance for the post-season tournament. " After that talk, the ' Kittens went on a tear, winning 11 of their last 12 conference games. Their only loss was to MIAA champs Southeast Missouri State University. They were able to overcome their mid-season slump and finish third in the MIAA. " I thought the season went very well, " Christy Hudlemeyer said. " We had some tough games when we went to 7-7, but toward the end we played some really good ball. " Playing " good ball " would be an understatement to describe the play of Janet Clark and Kelly Leintz. Clark led the conference in scoring with a 20.6 point average.

According to Winstead, Kelly Leintz also turned in a first-team per- formance; however, the MIAA coaches didn ' t select Leintz to the first team. " At first I was happy about mak- ing the second team, " Leintz said. " But after I thought about it, I was upset because I thought I had a good year. " Leintz led the league in rebound- ing with a 10.6 average. She was se- cond in the league in scoring with a 19.1 average. Christy Hudlemeyer also turned in a commendable performance, receiving praise from Winstead. " Christy was a leader on the floor, " he said.

Northwest lost four key wrestlers before the sea- son started, and the only breaks that followed were bad breaks. Northwest was rated 1 8 in the na- tion in pre-season polls. Because of the talents of Terry Schmuecker (118), Mike Hemann (1 26), Shawn Ryan (142) and Craig Schwienebart (1 50), who all had strong seasons in 1 986. Unfortunately, the four failed to return to either the University or the wrestling program. This left some key roles to be filled. " It was good for us in a way, " Reece said. " It was just that we couldn ' t afford to have that many go at one time. If we lost one or two kids a year to the bigger schools, that meant we must have been do- ing something right. " Wrestlers were not the only ones who didn ' t return. Re ece ' s assistant coaches took other jobs and left him as the only coach. " I lost my assistant coaches late in the summer, " Reece said. " I couldn ' t replace them in time for school to start. We were han- dicapped a little bit by a late start be- cause I coached football, too. " So with one coach, one senior, a handful of juniors and a majority of underclassmen, the ' Cats set out to try to capture their fourth consecu- tive MIAA title. Their journey was long and hard, and when the dust cleared, the ' Cats had a 1-13 dual record, and thoughts of another ti- tle had long since left their minds. Although a 1 -1 3 dual record was definitely a sub-par season, many " We never had all our best guys wrestling at one time and they were never in their best spots.

The ' Cats faced Division I schools Iowa State, University of Northern Iowa and Nebraska. The Division II schools were no breathers either, as they faced the first, second and third ranked teams in the nation. Even Di- vision 111 was top-ranked, with Bue- na Vista and Central of Iowa among the nation ' s top five. " We didn ' t come up against any slouchers at all, " Mark Burrell said. " We really didn ' t have a break any- where in our schedule. " Although one might argue the schedule was too tough for the ' Cats, Coach Reece saw it necessary to keep a strong program. " In order to attract a good wres- tler down here, we ' ve got to have a schedule like that, " Reece said. " Otherwise, we wouldn ' t get them. " Other factors that hurt the ' Cats were injuries and wrestlers not mak- ing weight. This meant shuffling people around, often where they were unaccustomed to. " We never had all our best guys wrestling at one time, and they were never in their best spots, " Paul Meyering. One of Northwest ' s bright spots of the season was the effort of Mark Burrell. The 126-pounder finished 2nd in the Edwardsville Midwest Regional tournament, and thus earned a wild-card spot to the na- tional tournament. " I was excited, " Burrell said. " I was sad because I was alone, but I had more support than I could ever remember. It was an outstanding feeling.

That was the word that described the in- tramural program. Whether it was in crowd support, referee- ing or playing, participation was evi- dent throughout the intramural season. " We had over 5,500 participants in intramurals, and our program just kept getting bigger, " said Bob Lade, intramural organizer. " Next to the Admissions Office, I thought we had handled the biggest number of stu- dents on campus. " Intramurals was one of the largest organizations on campus. But play- ers were not the only participants; cro wds of supporters and referees also participated. " Refs worked to earn Work Study for financial aid, and other refs came from the refereeing classes, " Marty Owen said. " They didn ' t have to take any tests, rather they attended a meeting prior to the sport. At this meeting, officials were informed of all rules and rule changes. " Helping employ students to earn Work Study money was just one strong point of the program. Another was there wasn ' t a partici- pation fee. " It was easy to enter intramurals, " Lade said. " All a student had to do was sign up. Also we did not charge to participate in our program; as other larger colleges usually did. " Several changes were made rang- ing from rule changes to additions of new sports. " One of our new policies was over altercations, " Owen said. " The rule stated if a fight occurred, a player was suspended from the sport. There hadn ' t really been that many fights. We had some disagree- ments, and some games were stopped, but as far as punches be- ing thrown, we hadn ' t had many at all. " " You could go out and com- pete, but you could goof around, laugh and not always worry about the score. " Billie Hoover New sports also came into con- sideration for intramurals. An indoor whiffle ball tournament proved suc- cessful and will be added to the an- nual program of sports. Next year folf, a combination of frisbie and golf, will be added to the intramural program. Other fairly new and popular programs, includ- ed the Schick three-on-three basket- ball tournament and the Bud Light superstars competition. The Schick three-on-three tourna- ment proved to be liked and com- petitive. The intramural program sent two teams to participate in the regional tournament. " We sent two of our teams to par- ticipate in the tournament held in Kansas City, " Lade said. " Our teams fared well against other college teams in the tournament. " Many sports were offered for stu- dents to participate in. Basketball was the most popular, drawing over 900 participants. This was an all- time high. Involvement in intramurals gave students the opportunity to partici- pate in a sport without all the de- mands of varsity college athletics. " You could go out and compete, but you could goof around, laugh and not worry about the score, " Bil- lie Hoover said. " College athletics was like a job, and you couldn ' t play around or mess up. That was what was great about intramurals, people weren ' t worried, and they went out and had a good time. " Though intramurals were played for fun and recreation, teams with a competitive edge went for the championship award, the prized yel- low T-shirts. Other teams played for a supremacy trophy, given to the team with the most points. " The T-shirts seemed to be more popular than trophies because stu- dents could wear them on campus --continued Intramurals 109 artlcipation record set and show them off, " Lade said. Many Greek organizations also became involved and competed for supremacy points. Placing in supremacy was an accomplishment, but to the men of Phi Sigma Kap- pa, being first was best. " We entered at least one team in every sport in intramurals, " Jeff Ra- num said. " We encouraged every- one to participate, and usually we entered four or five teams in each event. " Their enthusiasm paid off as they won the supremacy trophy for the seventh year in a row. " We had great participation, " Ra- num said. " We went out and proved we were number one. " Many students found intramurals rewarding in other ways. " Intramurals was a good way for me to escape the pressure of college studies, " Larry Hunt said. " They really helped me relax. " " Intramurals was a good way for me to escape the pressure of college studies. " La rry Hunt The program also provided stu- dents the opportunity to get exercise they would not get normally. " I thought the intramurals pro- gram was good, " Chris Humphreys said. " You could get some exercise and keep in shape, even if you did not play in a varsity sport.

Those who can not only teach, but they write, too. Several English professors have had their works printed in various publications. Academics 115 Education follege: child ' s - through eyes ho would have be- lieved first and second-graders running loose on a college campus? At Northwest, ele- mentary students on campus were reality. Horace Mann was one of two laboratory schools in Missouri and one of approx- imately 90 in the nation. Because Horace Mann was located on campus, elemen- tary students had a number of opportunities to see college students in action. To second-graders, college students looked like giants. " They were really, really big, " Shandy Zion said with a tone of amazement. " They all looked like teachers. The girls were really pretty and the boys were football players. " The second-graders even knew the average college stu- dent ' s study habits. " They stayed up all night and studied for tests, " Beth Ann Crow said with a voice of authority. But how long did they stay up? Was it past one in the morning? " I don ' t know, as long as it took, " she said. B; " ut what did they do when they weren ' t studying? The ob- vious answer could have been " party. " However, that wasn ' t the case. The second-graders thought the people who went to college spent their free time playing video games, going out to eat, going home, work- ing, watching TV and even studying some more. A lot of the second-graders planned on going to college. In fact, they were very excited about it. " I want to go to college to learn, " Nick Tunell said. " I want to be smart. " A boy sitting next to Nick, who had kept to himself most of the time, finally had some- thing to say. He spoke like he knew what he was talking about. " It ' s harder. It ' s really harder. " " No it ain ' t, " Nick yelled back at him. " Just if you learn. " T; he boy agreed with him, but he was determined to let everyone know there was work involved. " Yeah, you got to learn to type perfers, " (What- ever perfers are). Excitement was one way to describe how the second- graders felt about college. For a bunch of seven- and eight- year olds, these kids had it all worked out. They couldn ' t wait to go to college. They even had their schedules planned out. " If I go to college, the first class I ' ll take is swimming, " Beth Ann yelled out. She was followed by seven or eight others who strongly agreed with her. They might not know what is in store for them during those college years, but one thing is for sure, they know what it is all about.

Few, however, knew what it was like to be a teacher. Carol Esser found out when she became a student teacher. After 1 7 years as a student she got to view school from the other side of the lectern. Her voyage of discovery took place in a first-grade classroom in Pickering, far from the safe confines of Horace Mann. Not surprising- ly she was a little jittery at first. " I walked in and 33 pairs of eyes zeroed in on me and wait- ed for me to say something marvelous, " Esser said. Fortunately, she didn ' t have to face all 33 pairs of eyes by herself right away. The first few days were spent learning the ropes. But then she took her place at the front of the room and the testing period began. " The kids started testing me to see what they could and couldn ' t get away with, " Esser said. " But when I passed the test I was accepted as a real teacher. " I assing the test didn ' t mean her problems were over, though. The deeper she got into the experience, the more she learned about the daily hassles of teaching. Discipline was one of them. " The children realized I wasn ' t going to turn into a hairy monster if they did some- thing, " Esser said, " so they were themselves. " Esser found society had changed a great deal since she was in first grade. She had to cope with non-supportive par- ents, deal with outspoken youngsters and come up with activities that did not violate a child ' s religious beliefs. She also had to be careful in how she interacted with students. " I had to be careful how I touched a child, " she said. " Anything could be construed as abuse. " After facing situations like that all day, Esser could not just go home and forget about school. She spent many even- ings writing lesson plans. She leafed through magazines to come up with activity ideas. She prepared flannel boards, bead strings and other materi- als for activities. J pending evenings with les- son plans and days with first- graders kept Esser so busy that the weeks flew by. Just as sud- denly as the experience be- gan, it was over. " Once I finally got the hang of it I was done, " Esser said. Despite the hassles, there were pleasant times, too and Esser remained convinced she wanted to teach. So after a brief return to the world of col- lege, she journeyed into the real world. This time there was no cooperative teacher to fall back on, no knowledge that in seven weeks it would all be over. This time it was for real.D Dawn Williams 118 Student Teachers Using his own personal technique, Glenn Dutch gets his students ' attention by teaching from atop his desk.

A profes- sor didn ' t teach it and the em- phasis wasn ' t on academic in- formation, but it was college. At least it was thought of as college, an environment men- tally handicapped people usually didn ' t have the chance to experience. But, students from the College of Education worked as tutors to help resi- dents of group homes for the mentally handicapped in Maryville. The program involved help- ing residents learn skills neces- sary for daily living. But the most important aspect was the one-on-one relationship be- tween the tutor and the men- tally handicapped person. " The goals of the program were twofold, " said Gerald Wright, assistant professor of special education. " It gave the people from the group homes exposure and contact with col- lege students and helped them acquire additional skills. " N; Lot only did the program help them gain additional skills, it also improved their self-image. " Having the handicapped tu- tored on campus helped build their self-esteem, " Wright said. " It gave them a positive feeling about themselves because they felt like they were really going to college. " The weekly tutoring session was important to the han- dicapped in another way, it gave them another friend. " I knew they enjoyed just being with someone and hav- ing something to do at a cer- tain time, " Dana Groom said. " They were always excited about the session because they had a friend to count on. " Each tutor was in charge of one handicapped person. The tutor determined what the handicapped person was capa- ble of doing, then set lesson plans and goals. Each week contained a one-hour session in which they went over home- work and did in-class activities. " At first, it was scary, " Groom said. " But when they started to learn, it felt good and it was rewarding. " T; his program also taught the student tutor the impor- tance of commitment. Be- cause the handicapped count- ed on the tutor, once in the program they had a obligation to the handicapped person. Another benefit was it gave student tutors a realistic view of teaching special education. Tutoring the handicapped was a special program which benefited everyone involved. The volunteer services of stu- dent tutors brought more than skills necessary for daily living; it brought a special relationship and an improved self-image for the handicapped. □ Lori Nelson 120 Tutoring the Handicapped Volunteering her time, JoAnn Jenkins tutors Steve Kline.

After receiving instructions, she faced the class, untied her robe and let it drop to her feet. It wasn ' t an X- rated movie or a bachelor party, but instead, an art class. When students studied hu- man anatomy, the art depart- ment paid a model $8-an-hour to sit nude while students drew. Whether the model knew the students, often determined the state of mind she was in for the sitting. Embarrassment and reluc- tance accompanied the first sitting for Kim Hensley who agreed to model for the art de- partment. " I knew everybody in the class except one and that was what made it hard at first, " Hensley said. " I was really embarrassed. " O; ne male artist in the class was a good friend of Hensley ' s who didn ' t know she was the model until she walked into the classroom. " I was surprised, but I got used to looking at them (models) as something to draw, " Jim Brummel said. Af- ter the initial shock, Hensley was no exception. Parents weren ' t so under- standing, though. Hensley said her parents would have been disappointed if they found out. She didn ' t think they would have seen it as proper. Although Hensley had previ- ously modeled for her cousin, who is an art major, she had never modeled for a class be- fore and she said she did it mainly for the money. During Hensley ' s first sitting, a mixture of thoughts ran through her head as she tried blocking out the reality of what she was doing. " During the first pose, I kept telling myself ' detach yourself. Remember this is just art ' , " Hensley said. a, 1 neasiness felt in Hensley ' s first sittings soon diminished as she continued modeling for the art department. " I found it easier later, " Hensley said. " It was not too hard. I just got up there and put my mind somewhere else. " When encountering stu- dents outside of class, Hensley kept an open mind and rather than being embarrassing, their run-ins were amusing. " When I ran into a couple of art students at a show, one said, ' Oh, I didn ' t recognize you ' , " Hensley said. As for the artists ' percep- tions, nude drawings were just another form of art and some accepted it because it was popular during that time. " It ' s the classical thing to do, " Lynette Knight said. " Every- body ' s drawing nudes today. " Even though nude drawings were the thing to do, Hensley still claimed, " It was an ex- perience I wouldn ' t write in my resume.

With pack- ing crates and pica poles, her- nias and headphones, the Mass Communication Depart- ment moved into Wells Hall. Throughout the summer, trucks created a caravan from McCracken Hall and the Com- munications Building carrying furniture and equipment to the newly-renovated structure. For some students and faculty members, the move was a dream come true. For others, the gap between dream and reality was hard to bridge. " From the beginning we knew there wasn ' t enough money for renovation of the fa- cility the way we ' d planned, " said Rollie Stadlman, former director of broadcast services. B; ' oth faculty and students seemed to sense a different at- titude in Wells as broadcasting moved to the second floor and student publications moved to the lower level. " The students walked into the X-106 studio and they felt like they were walking into a ra- dio station, not a little box with a microphone, " said Buddy Schwenk, assistant music director for X-106. " People ' s personalities on the air be- came more interesting. They felt more important, so they sounded more important. " While the move to Wells seemed like a giant step for- ward for the department, some students still found themselves treading water. Because of heavy rains coupled with land- scaping and structural prob- lems, a few of the publications ' editors spent time battling flooding problems in the build- ing ' s lower level. " I expected Wells Hall to solve all our problems, " said Kevin Fullerton, managing edi- tor of Tower yearbook. " Our floors didn ' t sink in like they did at McCracken, but Wells flooded. Because of the heavy rains, we had other problems. " B; ' ut a few problems didn ' t dampen the overall feeling of a new facility. " I think it ' s better than McCracken because it ' s more professional. It ' s more like an office rather than just some place to put a paper together, " said Molly Rossiter, managing editor of Northwest Missourian. Being together in one facili- ty seemed to make each facet of the department more aware of the others ' operations, bringing about a sense of unity. " I think there was more un- derstanding overall, " said Fred Lamer, department chairman. " Simply seeing how other peo- ple did things and what their commitments were helped to answer a lot of questions and eliminate a lot of confusion. " Though not all the dreams became realities at Wells, the move was definitely one step toward the unification of a department. □ Mike Dunlap 124 Wells Hall i Heavy July rains caused flooding in the lower level of Wells Hall.

Books and articles by Dr. Vir- gil Albertini, Dr. Carrol Fry, Dr. Leland May and Dr. William Trowbridge can be found in libraries, bookstores and magazines. One of the authors was chosen by B. D. Owens, past president of Northwest, to write a book on Northwest ' s history. Albertini and his wife Dolores were co-authors of Towers of the Northwest. " I couldn ' t have done it by myself, " he said. " My wife did the researching and proofread- ing, I did the actual writing. She deserved a lot of credit. " Eighteen months of over 80 interviews paid off when the university awarded Albertini with a $1,000 MACE Award for excellence in research. In addition to his book, Al- bertini published magazine ar- ticles and started a collection of essays on the works of Willa Cather, a poet. 1 ry also wrote about a woman novelist. In 1979 ARCO Press bought publica- tion rights of Fry ' s dissertations on Gothic fiction entitled Charlotte Smith: Popular Novelist. " I took the money they offered me and bought myself a new coat, " Fry said. " I called it my Charlotte Smith coat. " In addition to his book, Fry published articles, film reviews and aired features on KXCV. One series was Creeds and Conflicts which dea lt with non-Christian religions. Although Fry wrote about non-believers, May wrote a book with a religious back- ground for students. Good Morning, Lord was printed in 1986 for its third edition. " I just jotted down what I saw around me and put it in a collection, " May said. As part of his doctoral degree, May ' s dissertations on Gothic literature were pub- lished. In addition to Parodies of the Gothic Novel, he also published numerous religious articles and worked on two children ' s books. T- rowbridge found a unique topic for his chapbook, The Book of Kong. This small book of poems showed maris absur- dities in a humorous way through King Kong ' s eyes. Trowbridge finished a se- cond book of poems and has been working on a third. He also gained national reputation by giving poetry readings across the country. With his heavy workload, Trowbridge didn ' t have much spare time to write. " I had fun writing; that made it tolerable to squeeze it in, " he said. " When it stops being fun, I ' ll quit doing it. " Whatever their motives for writing were, these men have been rewarded for their work in various ways. However, these awards seemed secondary to the self-satisfaction of having a book published. " It was just nice to have a book in print, " Fry said.D Cara Moore English Professors 127 ki 1 o complete the Orienteering course, students are required to participate in a Survival Weekend. Lt.

Her eyes were wide open as she looked down and the wind whipped through her hair. She leaned back and stepped off. Once over the edge, Faith Bortner used her break hand to slow her descent. With her legs perpendicular to the wall and her body upright, she walked down the wall. Walking down a wall was the basic form of rappelling, an ex- perience which was no longer unique. More and more stu- dents enrolled in classes like Rappelling and Drownproof- ing, one of four Military Science courses offered for physical education credit. Other classes included Marks- manship and Orienteering, Mountaineering and Army Fit- ness Training. In Rappelling and Drown- proofing, students learned the fundamentals of rappelling, such as knot tying, various rap- pels and when they were used. After the basics, it was time to put the lessons into practice. " We took them (the stu- dents) to the gym and started on some basic rappelling off an 18-foot wall, " Capt. Maurice Williams said. " Once they gained experience and confi- dence we took them up on top of Colden Hall. That was a lit- tle different for them, going from an 18-foot wall to one that was 50 or 55 feet. " However, he noted all stu- dents reacted the same way once they were on top of Cold- en Hall. " Everybody was scared the first time, " Williams said. " It didn ' t matter if a person was 4-foot-9 and 85 pounds or a 6-foot-4, 255-pound member of the football team. The first time they had to lean back- wards and hold on to that rope, all you saw were two big eyes and someone who was holding on for dear life. " H: Lolding on for life was a feeling that many students ex- perienced in the beginning. " First I said, ' I ' m not going to be scared. ' " Bortner said. " Then I looked down and said ' forget this. ' Then Capt. Wil- liams said to say my social security number and it helped. Then, I stepped off. " After rappelling came Drownproofing exercises which were taught in the Foster Aquatic Center. First, students were given a swim test in ord- er to determine individual proficiency. However, swim- ming was not the object of the class. Students were taught how to survive in the water for prolonged periods of time by floating and by using clothing as flotation devices. Whether it was Drownproof- ing or Rappelling, skills offered by Military Science courses gave students a taste of ROTC life.D Doug Rossell Rappelling and Drownproofing 129 Agriculture, Science and Technology Replacing books with test tubes rA: sinister laugh echoed through the halls of Garrett- Strong as frenzy-haired stu- dent chemists forced subjects to drink potions with unknown effects. Further down the hall, biology students eagerly chopped and sliced innocent frogs just to discover how many flies they had eaten. Scenes like these were enough to make students sick, faint or worse — never enroll in a biology or chemistry lab class. In actuality, science classes were not filled with mad scientists and on most oc- casions students did not relish dissection of any life form. The biology and chemistry labs cooperated closely with the general lecture classes. This gave students the oppor- tunity to witness experiments instead of learning only from a textbook. " I liked the labs a lot, " David Steinhauser said. " They (biol- ogy labs) helped the general course. The plain knowledge was not enough, you needed the hands-on experience. " A large part of lab sessions were spent on experiments. Bi- ology students became active- ly involved in the class. O; ne experiment had stu- dents running up and down the stairs, to see what effects exertion had on their breathing and heart rate. Another unusual experi- ment had students spitting into test tubes to find out how much starch was in their saliva. Some results from experi- ments took a while to occur, while other experiments did not work at all. " We did an experiment to change colors in test tubes, " Dawn McClintock said. " Ours didn ' t change, so we did it over again. " However, most instructors didn ' t like making students repeat experiments several times. " I tried to tell them what should have happened and helped them reach the correct conclusions, " said Pat Ryan, bi- ology lab instructor. " The bad thing about an experiment go- ing wrong was it didn ' t stick in their heads unless they saw the results. " V hemistry labs used acids and other chemicals in the ex- periments and results were for- mulated on the same premise. " Chemistry was something that was natural and made sense through experiments, " Michele Bockelmann said. Even though chemistry stu- dents were careful during ex- periments, extra caution was needed in dealing with harm- ful chemicals. " All chemistry labs were equipped with safety precau- tions, " Dr. Harlan Higgin- botham said, " such as show- ers, eye washes and safety goggles. " Most students finished lab classes with a better under- standing of the overall course. After taking labs, the night- mares of the mad scientists in Garrett-Strong were put to rest.D Lisa Helzer Science Lab Classes 131 Agriculture, Science and Technology VI Robotics offers glimpse of future V.2-D2 and C-3PO were qommonly thought of at the mention of robots; little mechanical men that moved around clumsily and beeped every now and then. But in reality robots served more im- portant and demanding tasks, like building parts on assembly lines or helping surgeons per- form delicate operations. Most students knew little about robots or the field of ro- botics, but the Technology Department hoped to change that with the introduction of a new course called Robotic Vi- sions Systems. The course in- troduced students to industri- al robots and their applica- tions. " This course gave students basic knowledge of how robots worked and could be pro- grammed and used more effi- ciently in an industrial setting, " said Dr. John Rhoades, profes- sor in Technology Department. Wt ith the addition of a Mit- subishi Robotic Arm, the department hoped to provide the newest technology in the field of robotics. The robot, an arm-like machine with a square base, could be pro- grammed with BASIC lan- guage to do different tasks, such as pick up and assemble parts. " It could do whatever you told it to do, " Rhoades said. " You could run it off the com- puter or guide it through its operations step-by-step in a process called teach-pendant. " The applications for robotics were numerous because more industries were demanding high efficiency and increased production on assembly lines. " These jobs were more suitable for robots because they eliminated tedious human tasks on the assembly lines, " Richard Hunt said. " By doing so, they created more hi-tech jobs for humans because the robots did the labor and the workers did the technical part. " R- Lobots were more ac- curate, efficient and they reduced labor costs according to Dr. Al Andrews, chairman of the Technology Department. " A union member who worked for $ 1 to $ 1 5 an hour needed breaks to eat and go to the bathroom and may have been absent from work, " An- drews said. " With a robot, all that was eliminated and it only cost $4 an hour to maintain. " Many industries employed robots in their assembly lines. Robotic manufacturing like those used in car factories and in medicine became routine and had changed the way peo- ple felt about robots. " Robotics is a fast growing field and probably will increase tenfold over the next 10 years, " Hunt said. In past years, robotics seemed to be a dream for a far-away future, but that future has become today. □ Hong Kok 132 Robotics Working with the Technology Depart- ment ' s equipment, Dr. Bruce Parmelee programs the Hero mobile robot.

Stu- dents helped businesses utilize available resources while em- ploying the benefit of their for- mal education. During the fall 1985, the center was formed in a cooper- ation between Northwest and Missouri Western State Col- lege. The center was headed by Dale Maudlin, a local Maryville businessman, with help from Dr. Robert Bush and Dr. Ron DeYoung. The main functions of the center were to provide coun- seling, training and manage- ment assistant resources upon request to newly formed busi- nesses in the surrounding 10 county area. The business people received guidance in several areas such as market- ing and advertising from the expertise and leadership the center provided. The center " gave students an opportunity to work in real life case situations, a chance to counsel with small business clients, " Maudlin said. B; ' ecause the center gave students the chance to coun- sel businesses, it compliment- ed the formal academic train- ing the University provided. The center allowed the stu- dents to gain a perspective that was " very emotional and a unique opportunity to gain ex- perience. They were working directly with business people, " Bush said. The center was phenome- nally successful in its first year, possibly because of the con- fidentiality it provided. Busi- ness students were advised by a faculty member, worked pri- vately using public and private educational resources. The Small Business De- velopment Center " set a track record for other centers (simi- lar to it) in this region and it helped other centers to set high goals, " Bush said. " It has surpassed all of our expecta- tions. " A- iccording to Bush, the center was not intended to be an economic " quick fix " for the area. It was more a long term program that would always have a need. It gave students the chance to provide a larger network of available resources to business people. " We were very pleased with the excellent progress of the center and look forward to the coming years, " Maudlin said. It was an unbeatable combi- nation. Cooperation between students and local businesses produced a situation beneficial to both. Students learned about the " real business world " and businesses were able to take advantage of the students ' education. □ Terry Aley Small Business Development Center 135 1 ranscribing dictation helps business student Terri Schacherbauer increase her typing speed.

While new electronic mach- ines and techniques were en- tering the business world, older office procedures were phased out. When word processors started to move in, shorthand was on the borderline, almost ready to move out. Shorthand provided an op- portunity to learn new ways to take dictation and notes. Although shorthand offered a quick and easy way to dictate letters and reports, the pres- ence of word processors in to- day ' s offices allowed bosses to do most of the work them- selves. Many people in the business field predicted short- hand was an office procedure of the past. " I wouldn ' t say that short- hand was obsolete, " said Dr. Greg Valentine, professor of shorthand and typing. " I would say shorthand was gradually being phased out. For exam- ple, a secretary who applied for an entry-level position at Hallmark in Kansas City did not need to know shorthand. However when she was up for advancement, she needed to know it. " V; alentine explained that the reason for the paradox in short- hand depended on the boss. The newer bosses at lower po- sitions were able to use word processors and dictation equipment. However, the older bosses who found it hard to ad- just to new technology usually depended on a secretary who knew shorthand. Even though shorthand was old hat, Northwest continued to offer the class and would continue to offer it as long as the state required it. Several degrees in the business field required students to complete a minimum of six hours in shorthand. " I took shorthand because it was required f or a two-year secretarial certificate and I also enjoyed business courses, " Wendy Wells said. " I took shorthand and typing in high school, but in order to meet re- quirements I had to take them in college. " D; espite filling require- ments, Wells said her future with shorthand was hard to predict. The use of shorthand depended on what corporation she worked for and how far they had progressed with office equipment. Many students weren ' t con- cerned about predictions of an office without shorthand. They felt as long as there was a boss and a secretary, shorthand would always play an important role in the office. □ Kevin Sharpe Shorthand 137 I Members of the Soviet Union ' s navy tour Revolution Square in Leningrad.

Even the name sounded ominous. It was not a country many Americans visit- ed. But for two weeks students in Dr. Richard Fulton ' s govern- ment class toured the Soviet (Jnion and learned about the Russian way of life. The tour of the Soviet (Jnion came as an extension to les- sons Fulton ' s class had studied. " It was a study tour, " Fulton said. " We had done some reading about the Soviet (Jnion and then we made the tour. " The group ' s schedule was designed to allow them to spend two or three days in different Russian cities. " We tried to visit a variety of places in Russia, " Fulton said. " We went to Moscow and Leningrad, but we also went to many other cities rather than sticking to those traditional cities. " Although the trip was excit- ing, some students were ap- prehensive once they arrived in the Soviet (Jnion. " I wasn ' t really scared on the flight over, " Ramanda Buckles said, " but once we got there I was a little worried because of what everybody said about Russia. " A; it the different stops along the way, students saw first hand the Russian way of life, a life they were not accustomed to. " The way of life in Russia was completely different to what we were used to, " Buck- les said ' They started school at the age of seven and they went seven days a week. If a student ' s grades were high enough the government sent him to college, but he had to study what the government told him to study. " The group ' s tour plans were altered a bit due to the nuclear meltdown at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Kiev, which occured six weeks be- fore they arrived in the Soviet (Jnion. The meltdown forced officials to evacuate residents of Kiev and surrounding cities. " We were scheduled to spend three days in Kiev, but we were not allowed to go to the city because of the Cher- noybl accident, " Fulton said. " We got about as far as 300 to 400 miles of Kiev. " The potential dangers of the aftermath of a nuclear explo- sion were not a cause of great concern to the tour members. " I 1 wasn ' t worried about it, " Buckles said. " If they thought it was too dangerous for us to go then we wouldn ' t have been able to. " In place of the three days the group was going to spend in Kiev, they went to Tbilisi and added Romania to the list of places they visited. The stops along the way al- lowed group members to visit ancient cities and to do some sight-seeing. Students visited a country that most Americans will only picture through a camera ' s lens.D Denise Pierce J Trip to Russia 139 President Board of Regents Hub s dream electri fies campus , rK keeping up with change was a big part of everyday life in the real world, but change in the academic realm often seemed slow in arriving. However, when the whirl- wind did hit Northwest, it seemed overnight, and the changes that took place were more than simple administra- tive re-shuffling. Everyone was forced to deal with change, and although President Dean Hubbard in- itiated the reformation, he was quick to point to the team con- cept as an integral part. " 1 don ' t see the presidency as bound up in power, " Hub- bard said. " It was bound up in responsibility. There were a lot of people who pulled together, and that was incredibly satisfying. " P I ulling together had been an emphasis of Hubbard ' s ad- ministration, and since he be- . came president in 1984, the institution had weathered seemingly endless waves of change. But when all his ideas began converging, Northwest seemed to be on the road to " surviving with significance, " Hubbard ' s primary goal. I As declining enrollments made competition among universities a matter of survival of the fittest, Hubbard ' s reor- ganization plan was just com- ing into play. He hoped to make Northwest unique as an institution and one that was, as Hubbard said, " truly regional. " Hubbard had instigated ai trimming down of administra- tive bureaucracy and pushed ' Northwest into the future with the Electronic Campus project. D. ' etermining the focus was the job of Hubbard ' s Master Planning Committee, which set into motion a year-long review of the University. Through its evaluations, the committee composed the Statement of Mission, a docu- ment which detailed the aca- demic areas in which North- west was strong and on which it should focus. The University decided to emphasize areas it had been recognized for in the past. Education, agriculture and business became the major thrusts of the institution and three of the four colleges. Reorganization had its finan- cial benefits, as well. In its first year, the University re- allocated $837,000 in ad- ministrative savings. " The first year was very productive in terms of the reformation I ' d hoped to see, " Hubbard said. " We came closer to focusing on the qual- ity of the educational ex- perience we provide students. " On another front, Northwest was not only surviving with sig- nificance; it was setting trends for higher education. Through the Electronic Campus project, The University hoped to propel students into the future by placing state-of-the-art data retrieval and word processing capabilities at their fingertips. A great deal of the adminis- tration ' s time was spent lobby- ing the Missouri Legislature for money for the project, which would place a computer termi- nal in every dorm room and faculty office on campus. Through Electronic Cam- pus, the administration hoped to allow students several com- puting options, including text editing, data access, video module access and tutoring. Behind the process was the attention of the Board of Re- gents, planning and making the " tough decisions " Hubbard said were behind the sharpen- ing of the University ' s focus. In January, the terms of both Board President Robert Cowherd and Vice president Michel Thompson expired af- ter the two had served the University for six years. " I would like to see a con- tinuation of a real, goal- oriented administration and would like to see the colleges focused on specific purposes, " Cowherd said. Northwest was gearing up for the future and the fulfill- ment of Hubbard ' s dreams, and in the end one fact re- mained clear: the University was preparing students for a world of change through the best experience possible — living through it on a daily basis.

President Dean Hubbard and his Cabinet were very ap- proachable, and yes, even human. Dean Hubbard At the top of the hierarchy was President Hubbard. However, bureaucracy wasn ' t a part of Hubbard ' s na- ture at all. He was a very structure-oriented and time- conscious man. Hubbard was aided in his ef- forts to stay organized by one of his companions, a small IBM computer. " I carried it all the time, " Hubbard said. " It was fun and I enjoyed using it. " Nc lot so surprisingly, Hub- bard learned how to use the computer on his vacation. When Hubbard traveled long distances for speeches or meetings, he asked someone to drive so he could work. " That was more fun than driving and it was also more productive, " he said. Exercising daily was also an important part of his routine. Hubbard worked out on a nordic track for 40 minutes ev- ery morning. He followed with weightlifting. " The nordic track simulates cross-country skiing, " he said. " It was more vigorous than jogging. " But Hubbard didn ' t just ex- ercise. While working out, he also listened to books on tapes, worked on speeches or watched videos. A; mother surprise was Hub- bard made oatmeal for break- fast every morning. His wife said no one else made it quite right. " I had the same breakfast every morning, " he said. " I was a pro at cooking oatmeal. " Structure was another area Hubbard felt very strongly about. " Very little that was mean- ingful ever took place in an un- structured environment, " Hub- bard said. John Paul Mees Athletics, music and art were things in Dr. John Paul Mees ' s, vice president for Ad- ministrative and Student Serv- ices, life that were very important. Athletics was an area Mees excelled in. He played four years of collegiate basketball at the University of Southern Illinois. However, when he was asked by some students to play basketball, he quickly dis- covered how fast the legs and the quickness went. " It was sort of funny, 1 went to jump to get a rebound and I only jumped about three inches off the floor, instead of the 15 or 18 I should have, " Mees said. His interests included cars, landscaping, art and music. But the easiest way for Mees to relax was to go visit his parents. Usually while they were there, he could swim, fish or go boating. " But sometimes in the winter, just a fire in the fire- place and having a weekend with the family was very relax- ing, " Mees said. Richard Dumont The " new kid " in the Ad- ministration Building was Richard Dumont, vice presi- dent of Academic Affairs, who began work at the University July 1. Although Dumont hadn ' t had much time to himself since he arrived in Maryville, he had many projects on the back burner. Dumont enjoyed outdoor activities away from the big city. " I love nature, " Dumont said. " I just liked to get out and take long walks in the country and just kind of stop and smell the flowers, so to speak. " B, " ut long walks and hiking were not his only interests when it came to the great out- doors. Dumont enjoyed canoeing and cross-country skiing as well. In the meantime, Dumont exercised by running, and he worked at it faithfully. " I ' m a dedicated runner, " Dumont said. " I started run- ning in 1974, before it really became faddish, and I have been running ever since. " But Dumont didn ' t run with empty hands — he carried five- pound weights to work out his upper body as well. --continued ■ i - ' 142 Administrators ' Hobbies John Paul Mees enjoys quality time with his family.

The key for Bush was his ability to pinpoint exactly what was most important to him. " Keeping company with my best friend, my wife Betty, was my favorite way to spend time, " Bush said. " She has been a special mother and the most important thing in my life. " o, ne of the activities the Bushes enjoyed together was planning, designing and build- ing their houses. " Building a house was a fun thing for us, " Bush said. " It was part of our desire to create something. " But Bush had other activi- ties he enjoyed, like metal and woodworking. He built one-of- a-kind items, he said, because he couldn ' t have made copies of his creations. " I liked to work with my hands, " Bush said. " In fact, it was good therapy, along with listening to classical music. " And when he was working in the shop, classical music played in the background. " It was kind of a stimulant, " Bush said. " When I was writing or designing, it would almost put me on a high. " Warren Gose Balance was an important term for Warren Gose, vice president for Finance, both in- side and outside the University. Gose kept his life away from the office in check also by be- ing active in his church. For over two years Gose was presiding elder for the Reor- ganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. " It was kind of another ad- ministrative job, " Gose said. " I helped develop programs, made sure people needed for various jobs and activities were there and established a budg- et, while also working with people and their feelings. " Fortunately for Gose, his other interests didn ' t require as much of his time. Gose also liked to play piano, although he had only received a year of instruction. " I liked to play it for my own enjoyment, " he said. " But I wouldn ' t do it anywhere else. " However, Gose thought it made an excellent channel for frustration. " When 1 got frustrated and there was no one else in the house, I would beat on the pi- ano for about 15 to 20 minutes to take out my frustra- tion, " Gose said. He also enjoyed yard work, snow skiing and traveling. Gose expected a lot from people, especially family and friends. " I really thought people were capable of doing a lot more, " he said. " Sometimes people settled for second best too easily. " 1 or Gose, his relationship with God was the most important thing in his life. " If I had a good relationship with God, then I could have a good relationship with my fa- mily, friends and employer, " Gose said. " I needed to have a strong foundation, and he was the best thing I knew. " Robert Henry If you wanted to know about sports of all types then a trip to Robert Henry ' s office was a necessity. Henry was Public Relations Officer for the University, but knew more than just Northwest sports status. A; Ldmittedly, Henry was a sports junky. It didn ' t matter what team was playing. He got emotionally involved. " I had often said in jest that if I had spent as much time in constructive pursuits as I have watching and listening to sports, I would have probably found the cure for cancer, " Henry said. His pastime became even more enjoyable when it was his children on the field or court. " I have gotten a lot of pleas- ure out of my children ' s partic- ipation in sports, " he said. It was not surprising that his children were interested in ath- letics, because when they were young he was always playing some sport with them. " I didn ' t get anything con- structive done because I was always in the backyard playing ball with the kids, " Henry said. Henry wasn ' t just a specta- tor. He also liked to get in- volved in some sports. Golf was the favorite, even though he said he wasn ' t any good. " I don ' t think being good is terribly important, " Henry said. " 1 try to get better but I never do. I ' ve had the same score for the last five years, and while I ' m not content with it, I have accepted it.

Dr. Richard Dumont, vice president for Academic Affairs, said the purpose of the reor- ganization was " to sharpen the University ' s focus on the professional programs of agriculture, business and edu- cation, while maintaining a strong commitment to gener- al education areas and to save money by reducing bureau- cracy. " Although it was too early to fully evaluate the results of the reorganization, it seemed well on the way to achieving those goals. " Significant savings and re- allocations had already oc- curred, and a sharper focus on the mission was evolving, " Dumont said. CI Lnder the plan, the num- ber of colleges was reduced from six to four. The change caused several departments to be moved or combined. Many departments with similar aims that were in different colleges found themselves together. " When similar fields of in- struction were in different col- leges, there tended to be com- petition, resulting in a lot of wasted effort and resources, " said Dr. Ron DeYoung, dean of the College of Business, Government and Computer Science. " When they were in the same college, resources were better managed. " ven with the benefits provided by the new system, many adjustments had to be made as deans and faculty members learned to deal with new people, areas and ways of doing things. The College of Arts and Humanities ex- perienced this when small aca- demic units became part of one big college. " The work was more than doubled, " Dean Robert Sunkel said. " Everything was com- pounded by not having that which was familiar. Things that were routine for others weren ' t for us. " But few faced a bigger change than Dumont, who came to Northwest in summer and inherited a reorganization already in progress. Dumont, however, felt his newness to Northwest was an asset in helping those who had difficulty coping. " In many ways, my personal adjustment to the reorganiza- tion was facilitated by the fact I was new, " he said. " I found that I could be supportive of and reassuring to those in- dividuals who expressed ap- prehensions about the changes occurring. " Although the changes made some people uncomfortable, others welcomed them, feeling they were beneficial to the University. " 1 think the reorganization helped the colleges come together, " said Dr. Joseph Ryan, dean of the College of Education. " There was a visi- ble manifestation of teamwork among the deans with Dr. Dumont ' s help. " Ti he reorganization was ac- companied by many curricular changes in the various col- leges. On the University level, a comprehensive assessment and instructional improvement program began. This allowed administrators to evaluate the effectiveness of student serv- ices through tests and ques- tionnaires administered through the Talent Develop- ment Center. Many changes had come and more were coming, as Northwest moved in new directions. " The changes that were oc- curring created a higher quali- ty environment at Northwest, " DeYoung said. " As a result it was an exciting place to be. " □ Dawn Williams 146 Reorganization m-f ■ • Before Art History class, Robert Sunkel, Arts and Humanities dean, sorts slides for class viewing.

At Northwest, adminis- trators weren ' t the only ones who decided someone ' s fate. A small group of students shared that responsibility as members of the Student-Faculty Dis- ciplinary Committee. The committee, consisting of four students and four faculty members, worked somewhat like a court. The board heard serious disciplinary cases against students, determined their in- nocence or guilt and recommended a punishment, which ranged from fines to dismissal from the university. Although participating on the board was an educational experience, there were also pressures involved. " We wanted to spend a lot of time making decisions, " George Gurnett said. " We didn ' t want to make any hasty decisions. " Even after a decision was made, the pressure didn ' t necessarily end. " If I saw a person the committee had found guilty of a serious violation on campus, it put me in an awkward posi- tion, " Venessa Maxwell said, " especial- ly if that person confronted me and asked me specifics about the case or the deliberation process. " There was also fear of unhappy defendants seeking revenge on a board member. However, committee mem- bers were protected in a number of ways. First, secret ballots were used. In ad- dition, everything said in deliberation was strictly confidential. Finally, there was a threat of further punishment to the defendant. Phil Hayes, the committee ' s adviser, outlined other procedures that took potential pressures off members. For example, the board could not dismiss or suspend students on its own authori- ty. President Dean Hubbard made the final decision about those penalties. In addition, students didn ' t have to worry about being associated with too many negative decisions. There were a number of students and faculty mem- bers on the committee, but only four of each served at a time. " We attempted to rotate so it wasn ' t always the same students and the same faculty at each hearing, " Hayes said. " No one liked to be identified as ' the hanging judge ' or ' the hanging jury ' . " Deciding someone ' s future was a tough job. But with procedures to re- move pressures, students found shar- ing real responsibility was a great way to learn about the judicial system. □ Dawn Williams Bush, Robert Vice President Applied Research Cairns, Tom English Carter, Sharon Broadcast Services Station Mgr.

Dr. Doug Butler had horseshoes of various sizes lining one wall of his office. Butler did not have them because he was superstitious; they were objects of world class status. At one time or another during his successful career, Butler had been an expert farrier, author and publisher, fea- tured speaker and consulting editor. Since 1 981 , he has taught the age-old techniques of horseshoeing. A farrier was similar to a blacksmith, but was involved in the total care of horses. Amidst the usual academic courses, Butler ' s classes revolved around horse science, farrier science, farrier craft- manship, agricultural blacksmithing and livestock management and disease. Butler said he averaged 1 5 students a semester. These students obtained hands-on experience by examining and shoeing horses brought by the general public. " It was like playing a musical instru- ment, " he said. " You had to do it rou- tinely. If left alone, you could tell the difference. " To keep his skills sharp, as well as hand-eye coordination and physical strength, Butler practiced a number of hours each week. Butler used this constant practice for more than teaching. On two different occasions, Butler qualified to compete with the North American Horseshoe Team in International Farrier Competi- tion held in Dublin, Ireland. In 1980, the team placed fourth overall and in 1986, the team finished third. On this world class level, Butler said only 30 farriers competed, while only 50 to 75 were even able to qualify. Even though it was an honor to com- pete next to the top farriers in the world, Butler said he didn ' t think he had reached his own potential. " I felt I could have been better, " he said. " Perfection is not possible to ob- tain. I ' m closer to it, but I still have a lot to learn. " Butler emphasized that anyone, es- pecially teachers, had to continually learn more to improve their knowledge about a subject. Maybe all those horse- shoes were a lucky key to Butler ' s suc- cessful career. □ Lisa Helzer Practice makes perfect as Dr. Doug Butler demonstrates his skills to his class by mak- ing horseshoes. Butler used this practice y r J time to instruct students and to sharpen his skills for the International Farrier Competi- tion in Dublin, Ireland, where his team finished third. -Photo by Nancy Meyer Wundram, Becky Education Administration Wyant, James Financial Aid Director Wynne, Johanne Agriculture Zierke, Kathleen Housing Zirfas, Monica Admin.

It ' s a dirty job Laundry detail includes making the whites white and the colors bright It was Saturday. The day associated with hangovers, football games, naps and dirty laundry. This particular Satur- day, dirty laundry shouted out its need to be washed (no pun intended) when I couldn ' t find any clean underwear. 1 had held out for three weeks, two days and 10 hours. Pretty good 1 thought; I beat my roommate ' s record by three hours. " I did my laundry when I ran out of clothes or underwear, " Shari Goetz said, " whichever came first. " Capturing a washer was the first challenge I knew would be difficult to accomplish. I didn ' t want to wear my underwear inside-out, though, so I headed downstairs to purchase some tokens. This became my first challenge when there were no tokens left — imagine that. The deskworker at Millikan told me to go to Franken. There I was told to go to Dieterich and on to Phillips. Finally 1 was told to go to Hudson. That ' s when I told them where to go. In desperation, I conned a freshman out of his tokens for three times what they were worth. Again, Goetz related to the problem. " I usually ended up going from door to door to purchase tokens, " Goetz said. " You had to buy them in $5 increments at my dorm and nobody had $5 for laundry--! was lucky to have 35 cents. " Clinging tightly to my tokens and car- rying two heaping baskets to the laun- dry room, I was shocked to find two empty washers. I soon discovered an " out of order " sign on one though, and decided I would not wait for another. I stuffed my underwear, jeans, towels, colored shirts, sweaters and permanent press dresses into one washer. Since 1 overloaded the washer, I concluded I should use extra detergent-four cups extra. I closed the lid by sitting on it and left the room saying a prayer. I wasn ' t the only student who washed laundry College taught students there actually was an art to doing laundry. Doug Glenn and Brian Wagoner receive their first lesson af- ter 1 00 percent cotton sweats were put in the dryer. -Photo by Debby Kerr in this manner, though. John Miller ad- mitted he used the same procedure. " I used to stick everything I could in one washer, " Miller said, " except jeans because I didn ' t have any room for them. " Three hours later, I returned to find my forgotten clothes thrown on the floor. There were blue underwear, shriveled sweaters and a dress I no longer recognized. Unrecognizable clothes seemed to be a problem for many others, too. " I still don ' t know if my roommate and I do laundry right, " Mark Bachali said. " My pants still come out different colors every time. " Mumbling obscenities under my breath, I got in line for the dryers. I was number four at 5 p.m., number three at 5:30 p.m., number two at 6:15 p.m. and finally at 6:42 p.m., I captured a dryer. All my clothes were now dry ex- cept my jeans and sweaters. I threw them in and left again. I kept a close watch on the clock this time, deter- mined to get my clothes when the dryer quit. Unfortunately, some friends convinced me to begin pre-partying with them which soon lead to partying which soon lead to Sunday morning. Goetz admitted forgetting her laundry, too, but for different reasons than myself. " Sometimes I went to classes and forgot about my laundry, " Goetz said, " but soap operas were major sources of my forgetfulness. " Once again remembering my laun- dry, I dashed downstairs to get my clothes only to realize they were gone. Someone had stolen my clothes. Someone has stolen Jill Lyle ' s clothes before, too. " I had a brand new T-shirt stolen, " Lyle said. " It was just a T-shirt, but it was the idea of it. " I left saying more obscenities, and this time they weren ' t under my breath. I made a pact that day the next time I ran out of clean underwear, I would go to the store and just purchase some more. Laundry-it ' s a dirty, dirty job, but someone has to do it.

At the stroke of midnight, night owls scurried through their dorms in search of food to satisfy their cravings. Some students left campus to cure their cases of the munchies; while others managed to find relief within the dorms. " When I was up late and got hungry I went into rooms and ate everyone else ' s food, " Marc Lombardo said. The most contagious cases spread among friends who were awake doing everything from typing papers to all-star wrestling in the halls. Becky Teal, Lorinda Rice and Samantha Webb usually got the mun- chies when they stayed up talking. " We ate anything in sight, " Teal said, " pop, potato chips, animal crackers, brownies, vanilla wafers, crackers and salami. " The ever-popular refrigerator raids saved many night owls from having to resort to the limited selections of vend- ing machines. Many students kept a surplus of favorite snacks on hand for a quick boost. " My friends and I stayed up late almost every night playing cards, " Jon Groom said. " Then we would go to the refrigerator and grab some tuna fish, cheese, yogurt or sandwiches to tide us over till morning. " Taking advantage of the dorm ' s kitchen facilities was another source of food for creative residents. " At 4:30 one morning, a few friends and 1 cooked three pounds of ham- burger with spaghetti sauce and put it on bread, " Kelly Collins said. " It was a change from Hardees, Dominos or Ter- ry ' s House of Heartburn. " Acute cases of munchies forced many students off-campus to con- venience stores for a larger selection of food. " When I would drink with friends we ' d go to Shop-n-Hop and buy Jo- jo ' s, " Ermel Wilson said. " That was the only time they tasted good. " Food runs before and after parties kept Maryville merchants busy. Shop- n-Hop and ASAP were favorite pit stops for a quick snack. " Before roadtrips some of us would stop and get enough food to get us to Iowa, " Mike Cleary said, " then we ' d stop again once we got there. " Even though students found various sources of food, few had the will-power to overcome late-night snacking. " When I got hungry 1 would go to bed so I wouldn ' t eat, " Lorie McKnight said. No matter what students were doing, midnight munchies crept into their rooms. They disturbed those intently studying and relieved those looking for an excuse to take a break. Whether the students gave in to the recurring dis- ease or fought it off, it still found its way around campus. When the clock struck midnight, many students learned to outsmart the infectious illness and crawled into bed to sleep through the suffering. □ Cara Moore In order to get through the night, Greg Port- er and Pat Gorerty purchase snacks at a lo- cal convenience store.

When it ended, she was surprised to find it wasn ' t MTV. It wasn ' t channel 41. It was NCTV on North- west ' s student-operated Channel 8. NCTV, National College Television, was a network which provided free programming to campuses nationwide. Bringing it to Northwest opened new doors for those involved. For example, running network as well as student- produced programming gave broad- casting students valuable experience. " It gave them a look at the operation of a television station, " said Mark Bris- lin, adviser. " It was good experience for them no matter what they ended up doing. " While broadcasting students were enjoying the experience, others were enjoying the entertainment NCTV provided. There was a variety of pro- grams to choose from including music videos, documentaries, college news from around the country and golden ol- dies like Jack Benny. " It appealed not only to a college au- dience, " said Chris Klinzman, student operations manager, " but to an older group as well. " Although NCTV took time to catch on, those who watched it seemed to like both old and new programs. " I liked the fact they were bringing back a lot of the older shows that, to me at least, were still funny, " Rob Van Orden said. The process of getting NCTV on the station began when President Dean Hubbard expressed interest in having more regularly scheduled TV program- ming. At that time, however, more programming was not feasible. The department lacked sufficient facilities and as Fred Lamer, chairman of the Mass Communications Department, explained, even commercial stations seldom produced more than a few hours of programming a week; getting the rest from syndication or networks. However, syndicated packages available to the university were too expensive. Those barriers were partially over- come, though, when the department moved to Wells Hall and acquired new equipment. Then Lamer received infor- mation about NCTV. " Suddenly, if we wanted to go on the air four hours a night we didn ' t have to worry about producing that four hours ourselves, " Lamer said. " We could use NCTV and then drop in our in-house productions on a pre-determined schedule — working it like a normal net- work or station operation. " Lamer was interested in NCTV and placed Brislin in charge of making the arrangements. A few months and many technical problems later, NCTV was on the air for a trial run. " The purpose of the test was to get feedback and see if it was something we wanted to keep, " Brislin said. " We wanted to continue it if the popularity was good and if it was feasible. " No one knew for sure what NCTV ' s future would be or what changes would be made after some evaluations had been made, but the outlook was good. In any case, with NCTV ' s debut, tel- evision at Northwest took a step into the future. Thanks to NCTV, students flipping from channel to channel in search of study breaks didn ' t have to settle for weather reports any more. □ Dawn Williams Seniors Graduates 167 Pint low Blood drive, sponsored by Student Senate, provided students with an opportunity to help local hospitals.

Boxer shorts were a comfortable and versatile part of studentr ' wardrobes. -Photo by Nancy Meyer Boxer shorts set trend of style and comfort Students wearing men ' s underwear in public? It wasn ' t typical attire in a conservative Midwestern community, but it was reality in the ' Ville as boxer shorts hit the scene. Only in the ' 80s could men ' s under- wear have been regarded as fashion. Who knew why; maybe it was fashion, fad or perhaps just because they were comfortable. But one thing was for sure, boxer shorts were an important part of many students ' wardrobes. " I loved them and wore them all the time, " Jeanne Voss said. " All the girls on campus wore them after we got back from classes. We always wore them in the dorms, just because they were so comfortable. " Although many students wore the shorts for comfort, others thought they were relaxing or amusing to wear. " Everybody wore them around cam- pus and during intramural games, " Jane Sims said. " They were fun and came with so many different things on them. " Boxer shorts could be purchased with an extensive assortment of pat- terns printed on them — from red hearts to little teddy bears. Even though stu- dents thought of them as fun clothes to wear, many parents were a little ap- prehensive about them. " When I wore them, " Kerri McCoole said, " I took them home for Mom to wash and she showed them to my Dad and said with concern ' Our daughter is wearing men ' s underwear— I don ' t wear them any more. " Parents were not alone in apprehen- sion about boxer shorts, despite their popularity there were also those stu- dents who wouldn ' t have been caught dead in a pair of boxer shorts. " They look really uncomfortable, " Rob Debolt said, " and they look really silly on people. I ' d never wear them. " Whether boxer shorts were a pass- ing fad or fashion didn ' t really matter, nor did the fact they were men ' s under- wear, because to students, they were fun, comfortable clothes. □ Lori Nelson Benorden, Allison Bernard, Valerie Bestgen, Janice Billups, Kristy Bisacca, Kristi Bishop, Lee Ann Bixler, Linda Blackmore, Kelli Blair, Brenda Blair, Kevin Blocker, Kelley Bobst, Scott Bockelmann, Michele Bogart, Stacy Bollinger, Shelly " I don ' t think it was right that the in- structors could count off on our grade if we didn ' t go to class.

Some would not sleep in their rooms by themselves; they felt a strange presence watching over them. These residents of Roberta Hall feared the ghost that lurked through the hallways and haunted their rooms. She turned on water faucets, closed doors, passed through walls and turned on lights in deserted rooms. Items mys- teriously disappeared. Windows which were shut and locked at night were found open in the morning. Her picture fell off the fireplace on the anniversary of her death. The list of ghost stories has grown since 1952 when Roberta Steel died af- ter injuries suffered in a fire at the Women ' s Residence Hall. In April 1951, a gas tank located east of the residence hall exploded, causing fire damage to the dorm and injuring many of the residents. Roberta suffered third degree burns and shock, but fought for her life and returned to college against doctors ' orders in the fall 1952. However, two months later at her fami- ly ' s Thanksgiving dinner she apparently began hemorrhaging at the mouth and went into a coma, never recovering. The cause of her death was not veri- fied, although some claim she died as a result of infection from skin grafts while others believe she died from cir- rhosis of the liver. Regardless of the cause of her death, many have sought the truth in the legend of her ghost but have not found substantial evidence to support her ex- istence. They doubted the stories of the ghost, the unexplained incidents and the weird noises and replaced them with logical explanations. " Every residence hall made noises, " said Bruce Wake, director of housing. " Roberta Hall, being the oldest, was more likely to make those sounds. " More disbelief came from those who knew Roberta ' s background and perso- nality. Assistant Professor Jane Costel- lo lived in the Women ' s Residence Hall at the time of the fire and knew Roberta. " She had a wonderful sense of hu- mor and was always teasing in a fun way, never hurtful, " Costello said. " 1 don ' t believe in ghosts, but if people were going to have one, it might as well have been a fun-loving one like Roberta. " The incidents in Roberta Hall were never injurious or violent, just spooky; but they were solid enough proof to make many residents believers. " 1 didn ' t believe in Roberta until something happened to me, " Barb Al- len said. " My brass lamp turned on by itself when neither my roommate nor I was standing near it. Then I heard sto- ries of weird things that had happened to my friends. I started feeling like someone was always watching me. " Laura Lanoha was another resident who experienced an encounter with Roberta. She was in the basement alone when she heard someone. She looked up and noticed a strangely dressed girl walking down a hallway. " I knew she wasn ' t in a sorority be- cause I had never seen her before, " Lanoha said. " The next time I looked up she was gone. I checked the doors she could have left through but they were all locked but one, and that one made so much noise I would have heard her open it. She seemed to have vanished. " Many girls never witnessed the mys- terious events but still believed some- thing was occurring in the dorm. " Nothing out of the ordinary hap- pened to me, " said Cindy Crisler, resi- dent assistant. " But even though every- one claimed Roberta wouldn ' t do any- thing bad or harmful, 1 still felt some- thing present. " Whether students truly believed the ghost of Roberta existed, they often talked about the popular ghost. She was the basis of many ghost stories, the subject of seances and the root of resi- dents ' fears. Roberta never died in the eyes of many, she lived on, stalking the dorm named after her, reminding its residents of her life and the incident that took her life. But for those who didn ' t believe in the living spirit of Roberta Steel, may she rest in peace. □ Cara Moore Women ' s Residence Hall was renamed Roberta Hall after the death of Roberta Steel in 1952.

" Edward Oster 177 Not disabled, handicap ' able ' Disabilities don ' t stand in the way for students who dare to overcome obstacles They were just like any other stu- dent. They went to classes, joined or- ganizations and clubs and did all the things other college students did. But there was one slight difference between them and other college students. They were physically handicapped. However, these students did not let their handicaps slow them down or stop them from doing what they wanted to do. Cathy Coyne, who was born with only one leg, tried rappelling after she could not register for a class she want- ed to take. " 1 wanted a P.E. credit and I had signed up to take aerobics, but it was full, " Coyne said. " So when a friend of mine said there was a mountaineering class open, I jumped at it. " Past experience in climbing made the transition to rappelling an easy and fun one for Coyne. " When people rappelled, they were afraid of going over the edge, but 1 wasn ' t scared because I had done some climbing in Colorado when 1 worked with mentally retarded children, " Coyne said. " I just tied my leg to keep the center of gravity and so my leg wouldn ' t bend and just did it. It was fun. " Troy Reif was another student who did not let his handicap, being deaf, slow him down. " 1 have been deaf since birth or the age of six months, " Reif said. " My par- ents were never able to find out what caused my deafness. " Reif ' s decision to continue his edu- cation was supported by the Vocation- al Rehabilitation Department, a service which supports handicapped students who attend college. " They gave me a lot of encourage- ment to attend college and I chose Northwest after graduating from Iowa Western Community College, " Reif said. With the help of an interpreter, Reif was able to understand and participate in class discussions. " My interpreter has interpreted for me since the fall ' 85, when I transferred here, " Reif said. Reif proved his handicap was not an obstacle by getting involved in special- interest clubs and pledging a fraternity. " I was involved in Ag Club, Agrono- my and a member of Alpha Kappa Lambda, " Reif said. " Last year, I played football for the Bearcats. " Another student had to overcome the difficulties of attending college while being legally blind. " It wasn ' t very easy when I came here, " Andy Stahmer said. " I had a lot to overcome. 1 didn ' t have a lot of help. " Despite his difficulties, Stahmer joined the campus radio station and received help from others involved. " When I got involved with KDLX it took up a lot of my time and it was hard work, " Stahmer said, " but the support they gave me was tremendous. " When it came to schoolwork, Stah- mer had to find people to read the as- signments to him. " I usually just grabbed somebody to read for me, " Stahmer said. " They usually did not mind. " These students didn ' t let physical differences stand in the way of being average college students; instead they faced the challenge head-on. □ Denise Pierce " Just when you thought you had the system figured out, they com- puterized the campus.

One cheerleader who stood on the sidelines rallying crowd support for the Bearcats also achieved recognition. Linda Carnes was honored when she was selected from over 2,500 cheer- leaders as one of the National Cheer- leaders Association ' s (NCA) First Team All-American Collegiate Cheerleaders. Carnes competed with cheerleaders from over 300 colleges and universities across the country. Before being named All-American, Carnes and the rest of the Northwest cheerleading squad attended a week long All-College Cheerleader Clinic in Lincoln, Nebraska which was spon- sored by the NCA. The cheerleaders participated in many events which helped them develop their skills. Carnes had done so well in previous sessions of the clinic the NCA asked her to teach routines at their clinics, quite an accomplishment for a person who did not start cheering until college. Demonstrating her All-American cheerlead- ing skills, Linda Carnes does a Spread Ea- gle jump on a trampoline.

" I decided to try out for the squad my sophomore year. I have been cheering for 3V2 years and taught at the camp for three years. " Carnes competed with cheerleaders from Division I colleges, which made winning a bigger thrill. " Linda was up against cheerleaders from much larger colleges like the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma, " said Nancy Hanks, cheerleading adviser. " But out of the 12 women from the United States chosen, she was the only one from a Division II college to win. " Increasing the value of the award was the fact that she had won it the year be- fore also. " I was very excited when 1 found out that I had won the award, " Carnes said. " I was also very honored because it was the second year the NCA had chosen me as a First Team All-American cheerleader. " After being informed about being chosen, a date was set to present the award to Carnes. " I was presented the award on Oct. 25, at halftime of the last home foot- ball game by our cheerleading advisers, Dr. John P. Meese, Nancy Hanks and Jim Brizendin, " Carnes said. " Unfor- tunately, we lost the football game. " Although most people thought of athletes as the only ones who were ac- knowledged for their efforts, Carnes proved what a little cheer could do. □ Denise Pierce 183 Monson, Cyrus Mooney, Kindra Moore, Cara Moore, David Moore, Donald Moore, Jane Moore, Stephen Moppin, Ronnie Morris, Christy Morahed, Lori Murphy, Rick Murray, Stacie Neff, Scott Neighbors, Colletta Nelson, Chaddrick Nelson, Christine Nielson, Chip Niemann, Lori Noellsch, Paul Nordee, Lawrence Norman, Brian Nowak, David O ' Riley, Teresa Odell, Beth Oftedahl, Janine Ohlinger, Lynne Olerich, Jill Oltman, Lisa Orme, Bev Overton, William Palmeiro, Carrie Palmer, Charlotte Palmer, Sherry Palmer, Terri Park, Kathy Parman, Vernon Patterson, Peggy Paulson, Sally Payne, Tara Peeble, Gaylin Penrod, Mark Perdew, Todd Perne, Sharon Peterson, Marcy Peterson, Michelle Pettit, Amy Pfeifer, Shelley Phelps, Doug Phillips, Heather Pierce, Denise Pixley, Rebecca Place, Michael Plackemeier, Melissa Plain, Michael Piatt, Chad Pollard, Robin % m 184 Undergraduates Concentration Many people find it hard to focus attention on both reading and listening.

It meant depend- ing upon yourself and appreciating par- ents and siblings in their absence. But for Julie, Jean and Jane Carlson, fami- ly was just a few doors away. Julie was the first to attend North- west. Her younger twin sisters, Jean and Jane, followed her the next year. According to Jean, just because her sister went to one college didn ' t mean she had to go there too. " Having Julie at Northwest helped us look at the school, " Jean said. " I came here because I wanted to, not because Julie came here and not because Jane was going here too. " Although Julie appreciated being away from her family her first year in college, she said it was great her youn- ger sisters were going to be with her. " I liked being away by myself my freshman year, " Julie said. " I got to meet a lot of people and I made new friends. I also gained a lot of experience 1 was able to pass on to them. " All three sisters were also members of Phi Mu sorority. Jean said their fa- mily relationship had nothing to do with their decisions to join the sorority. While Jean and Julie went through rush together, Jane didn ' t. She joined Phi Mu through an open bid. The relationship between Julie, Jean and Jane was close. However, while liv- ing at home, they had learned to de- pend on themselves and not always on each other. " Mom really expressed individuality, especially between Jean and myself, " Jane said. " Mom always expressed that Jean wasn ' t always going to be around and not to depend on her. She said, ' Take advantage of your own life ' . " Their family life played an important role in their lives. Not only did Jane and Jean get along, but their relationship with Julie was strong. Julie said when j she was younger, there were occasions where she felt left out, being the sister of identical twins. " It bothered me at times when I was younger, " Julie said, " but not as much anymore. It was like the three of us, more than the twins and Julie. " They felt lucky to have each other. They said they were just like any other family, but had a special closeness. " I thought we got along well, " Jean said. " Not that we didn ' t have our fights, because we did, like anybody else. " While the Carlsons couldn ' t leave their family problems back home and get away at college, they were able to work out their problems. When problems did arise, a shoulder to cry on | was just a few doors down.

Its arms and legs were tugged and pulled and I just knew it would be pulled apart at the seams. The teddy bear never dreamed he would be involved in a tug-of-war. By all this commotion, one could tell Christmas was here because shoppers ' anxiety. After all, Christmas was a time to ' bear ' gifts. The Christmas holiday was a time of excitement and anxiety, which brought out the little kid in many students. Those who were filled with Christmas cheer swamped shopping malls and charged on their plastic cards to their hearts ' content. Their real anxiety at- tacks came when the bills arrived. " Shopping at Christmas was a fun challenge between bargains and fight- ing against other shoppers to get the best selection, " Dana Davenport said. Furthermore, Christmas was a time when many students pulled childish stunts. " Even though I was older, I still shook my packages hoping to figure my gift out, " Jeff Claxton said. Some students went to the extreme of snooping through their parents ' bedroom for clues. " Every year at Christmas time I looked for rebate slips in my parent ' s room, so I would know what I was get- ting, " Tracy Wilmoth said. Christmas brought out fun qualities in people — from having their pictures taken with Santa to unwrapping gifts and placing them back under the tree hoping no one would notice. " The atmosphere and music provid- ed my incentive for holiday cheer, " Claxton said. For students, Christmas was remem- bered as a time with family and friends. This special time of the year was also enjoyed because we all knew we were kids at heart. □ Colletta Neighbors As vacation approaches, holiday cheer spreads throughout the dorms.

The stories went on and on while they all had one thing in common — airlines were no longer flying the friendly skies, but rather they were going bankrupt or merging, fighting fare wars, being hijacked and bombed, crashing and striking. Fojtik, after working for TWA for 1 6 years, couldn ' t handle it when he was let go after the flight atten- dant strike was broken. The flight attendants ' adversary was union an- tagonist Carl Icahn who bought control of TWA in 1 985. Icahn immediately asked the pilots, machinists and flight attendants to take a 20 percent pay cut. When the machinists would only take a 15 percent reduction, the flight attendants refused to give back any more than the machinists and went on strike. " He offered them (flight attendants) something so ridiculous he knew they would walk out, " one Wall Street airline analyst said. Of the 6,500 Independent Federation of Flight At- tendant members who originally struck, only about 1,600 went back to work. Meanwhile, People Express advertised, " If you ' ve paid all that money and haven ' t quite found what you want, let us tell you of an airline that charges less and gives exactly what you want. " People Express, commonly nicknamed " People Distress, " never found what they wanted when Donald Burr, People ' s founder and chairman, announced the sale of part or possibly all of the airline. People Express was not alone. News of airlines merging or filing for bankruptcy got to be daily news. Eventually it became impossible to know who owned what airline and which airlines were still flying. As for the future of People Express, Burr claimed he ' d find a way to deal with the setback. Another major setback occurred August 31, when a private plane and an Aeromexico DC-9 jetliner col- lided in midair, killing 85 persons. The Mexico jetliner was making its final approach to Los Angeles International Airport when it collid- ed with the single-engine Piper Archer plane. The stabilizer, which controlled the jet ' s pitch or nose-up, nose-down movement, was ripped off in the collision making any control impossible. The jet dropped upside-down onto the residential Cerritos neighbor- hood below and the private plane crashed in a va- cant school playground nearby. All 58 passengers and the crew of six aboard the Aeromexico plane were killed along with the three in the private plane and at least 18 persons on the ground. Airplane crashes were viewed by some as unfor- tunate, but not any more unfortunate than other accidents. ' ' Life was risky and you had to take chances, " Bi- jan Siadati said. " I knew somebody who died just by falling backwards in her rocking chair. " Only five days after the midair disaster, the airlines faced another dilemma with a terrorism attack in Karachi, Pakistan. Surprisingly enough, hard hit TWA was not victimized for a third time, but rather Pan Am ' s Flight 73 was. Four Arabic-speaking gunmen held the Boeing 747 jetliner hoping for release of prisoners in Cyprus. After holding the plane for 1 6 hours, the lights sud- denly went out and an outbreak of gunfire and ex- plosives resulted in the deaths of 15 pe rsons. " The plane was a holocaust, " said Hussian Shaffi, passenger of Flight 73. Airlines became expected front page news with their disasters and misfortunes, but some people still felt flying was safe. " I wasn ' t afraid to fly, " Mike Teson said, " but I ' m a pretty trusting person, too. " Associated Press printed astonishing figures which would have made any trusting person think twice be- fore taking to the air. There were at least 3,000 fewer airline mechanics and 1,700 more aircraft than five years ago. There were 407 commercial airlines in the deregu- lated airline industry, compared with 237 in 1979, but there were only 1,332 Federal Aviation Adminis- tration safety inspectors compared with 2,012 in that regulated year. Time magazine also pointed out some interesting facts about airlines. Air traffic controllers were down from 16,300 to 14,700 since President Ronald Reagan fired striking members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization in 1981. As a result, there were only 62 percent of them who were qualified at " full per- formance level. " The decline of the airlines took a toll on one Eastern pilot who decided he had come to a point in his life where he needed to make a change. Being fed up with delays in Atlanta, he walked away after waiting on the taxiway for take-off into what seemed no longer to be the friendly skies. D Debby Kerr National 197 ational Trillion dollar budget Defense crowds out student aid President Ronald Reagan, a long-time champion of the balanced budget, made histo- ry in January with a rather in- auspicious move: he became the first President to send a trillion-dollar federal budget to Capitol Hill. Nevertheless, the adminis- tration claimed the budget met the $108 billion deficit ceiling mandated by the Gramm- Rudman law. In paring down the federal flab, the White House put for- ward massive cuts to domestic programs, including slashing student financial aid by a whopping 46 percent — a move that would have pushed three million students off fed- eral aid in 1987. The administration, which had proposed similar cuts in 1981, 1982 and 1983, push- ed the point even further with the 1988 budget. Reagan asked Congress to abolish the College Work Study Program and deeply cut Guaranteed Student Loan and Pell Grant expenditures. The goal of the administration ' s plan was to make students, not taxpayers, pick up the tab for education. Unfortunately, financial aid experts worried many students would be unable to take on such a burden. Specifically, the administra- tion asked for a cut of $2.3 bil- lion in total Education Depart- ment expenditures, which in- cluded a cut of $3.7 million from financial aid, depleting those funds by nearly one-half. Jim Wyant, associate direc- tor of financial aid, said if the Reagan aid cuts passed, at least 50 percent of the 2,179 Northwest students receiving federal aid would be affected. He said the groups hurt worst National would be the middle- and low- er middle-class students who comprised most of the Univer- sity ' s enrollment. Many who received Work Study planned for other em- ployment, while Northwest composed a plan for increas- ing University funded student labor. Many students saw the move as a blow to the concept of equal opportunity for higher education. " We don ' t all start out equal, " Joel Brown said. " If you were poor, you started several steps below, and you probably were never going to make it as far as someone who started out rich. When Reagan cut financial aid, he was saying, ' I want to keep it that way ' . " Other social programs would also be on the chopping block if the budget passed without alteration. In a move that could prove Would you stop being so selfish?! politically explosive, the Rea- gan budget would decrease agricultural allocations by several billion dollars by 1 990. In doing so, the administration sought to cut target prices that determined the amounts of farm subsidies by 10 percent each year. Moves to slash farm aid were considered risky on Capitol Hill, however, and Northwest agriculture students worried about the effects on the farm economy. The nation ' s Amtrak rail sys- tem would also be sold if Rea- gan ' s budget made it through Congress, and the Interstate Commerce Commission would be eliminated. Nevertheless, some pro- grams received favorable nods from the president. Not sur- prisingly, Reagan requested an increase of 3 percent after in- flation for defense expend- itures — a hike to $312 billion. Reagan had consistently ex- panded the Pentagon ' s buying power in each year, increasing the percentage of the federal pie spent on defense from 23 percent in 1981 to 28 percent in 1988. In the meantime, his administration cut payments to individuals from 48 percent to 45 percent. In an effort to curtail the AIDS virus, the president pro- posed granting an extra $123 million in research funds at the expense of cancer research. Many students, however, saw the cuts to social programs as the most angering parts of the president ' s proposals. " It was not that Reagan was being cruel, " Brown said. " His conception of the United States was just not one that in- cluded financial aid or as- sistance to people who were not capable of making it economically.

This was proven when the federal government phased in a historic tax reform. Parts of the plan had direct impact on students. According to the revisions, stu- dents with scholarships had to pay taxes on the portions covering room and board. Students did not have to pay taxes on scholarship money used for books, sup- plies, tuition and fees, however. " People who had full-ride scholarships had it a lot easier because everything was paid for, " Rob Zirfas said. " There was no incentive to go out and try to be independent. " Students dependent on their parents lost a tax break. Under the old laws, both parents and students could count the stu- dent as an exemption. Under the revision, only one of them could do so. Congress had a tendency to make things more complicated when they tried to simplify them, y ) •Stephen Luke The plan also changed the number of tax rates from 15 to two. In addition, the reform reduced various tax deductions including interest on loans, sales tax, child care, charitable contribu- tions and medical expenses. It also shift- ed $ 1 20 billion in taxes to corporations. The new plan received mixed reviews from students, most of whom found the revisions confusing. " Congress had a tendency to make things more complicated when they tried to simplify them, " Stephen Luke said. " For example, the simplified W-4 form was three pages longer than the old one. " Still, some students also saw value in the new tax codes because they thought the revisions would promote fairness and encourage more honesty among federal taxpayers. " They needed to change the laws be- cause some people abused them, " Bridg- itte DeLong said. " Maybe that way it wasn ' t as easy for some people to cheat on their tax liability. " However, it was still too early to evalu- ate the effects of the new laws because the plan they replaced had not even been fully implemented. It seemed as though only one thing re- mained unchanged by the new federal policies, the fact taxes still had to be paid.D Dawn Williams National ational Lady Liberty sparks festival The national tribute to celebrate Lady Liberty ' s 1 00th birthday brought six million people to the tip of Manhattan Island to witness the unveiling of a symbol of American freedom.

Then it was to fly an airplane around the world without re-fueling or stopping. Dick Rutan and Jean Yeager made that " impossible " dream come true when they complet- ed the journey in the tiny air- craft called Voyager. Rutan ' s brother, Burt, designed Voyager, and a small National group of volunteers built it. It took almost six years before Voyager got off the ground. The 25,012-mile adventure began December 14 in Califor- nia. Nine days later the Voyager landed with only 14 gallons of fuel to spare. Most students hadn ' t doubt- ed that the Voyager mission would succeed. " If people set their minds to something they could do about anything they wanted, " Gary McKinnie said. Many people, like Rutan, wanted to be the first to achieve the dream of their choice. He called the flight the " last first in aviation. " But who knew? Maybe someday soon more adventurers would come along, ready to try their hands at achieving yet another " im- possible " dream. D Dawn Williams The ye Abortion Pill Women seeking abor- tions were given a new alter- native to clinical proce- dures. French researchers developed a pill to abort pregnancies detected within the first month. While some women fa- vored the privacy of RCI 486, many people feared it would be used as a contraceptive. The Food and Drug Ad- ministration could take up to two years to approve the usage of the pill in the Unit- ed States. ' Amerika ' The ABC mini-series " Amerika " was the subject of a great deal of con- troversy. Critics called it everything from right wing propaganda to a threat of arms negotiations with the Soviet Union. The 14V2 hour mini-series took place in 1997, 10 years after the Soviet Union had supposed- ly taken over America. Much of the filming for the fictional farm town of Milford, Neb., took place in Tecumseh, Neb., about 90 minutes from Maryville. Soviet Withdrawal After seven years of oc- cupation, the Soviet Union pulled 8,000 of its 120,000 troops from Afghanistan in October. The Soviet decision to withdraw came as Afghan clients in the Kremlin pre- pared for a new session of peace talks in Geneva. Those conferences cen- tered on Pakistans ' demand for immediate and com- plete withdrawal. Although troops with- drew, military operations 5-SS- year in headlines continued. The killings of civilians and disregard for ' civil rights continued, as well as the Soviet occupa- tion of Kabul, Salalabad and ; Mazar-i-Sharif, three major Afghan cities.

Bomb Threats After several false bomb threats to classroom build- ings and residence halls in the fall, the administration halted Campus Safety ' s rou- tine evacuations. While threats ceased, some stu- dents feared an authentic bomb exploding inside an occupied building. Later, a threat was made in Wells Hall and Campus Safety evacuated the building. This changed the policy regarding future evacua- tions in Wells Hall. If other threats occurred, Horace Mann students would evacuate, and college stu- dents in the building would have the option of leaving.

Dekalb Shooting Tired of endless teasing by his classmates about be- ing overweight, a 12-year- old boy from Rushville killed a fellow student and then himself. Nathan Faris had warned the seventh-graders that he was going to bring a gun to school and end the ridicule, but they didn ' t believe him. On March 3 he pulled a .45-caliber gun from his duffel bag and shot 13-year- old Jim Perrin before shoot- ing himself in a Dekalb Junior High Classroom. Aquino " Steel and silk " was how Time magazine described Corazon Aquino, its Woman-of-the-Year. Aquino stunned the world by taking over as president of the Philippines after overthrowing the re- gime of Ferdinand Marcos.

Not to the disabled list or as a result of a contract dispute, but to cocaine. The athletes died from cardiac arrest caused by co- caine. The powerful drug simply shorted out their systems. One positive aspect of their deaths, was a wave of concern about drugs in sports. A shocked sports world was forced to open its eyes to drug abuse within its institution. Bo Jackson The talents of 1986 Heis- man trophy winner Bo Jackson were not limited to the football field. The Au- burn University superstar chose to play baseball rather than football, and more importantly to Kansas City fans, chose to don the Royal blue. Many felt that Jackson, the highest-rated amateur player to come through the Kansas City organization, could definately be a con- tributing factor, and might be the spark plug the Roy- als needed to increase their offense. Brian Bosworth The NCAA made its stand on drug testing per- fectly clear during post- season bowl games. Okla- oma linebacker Brian Bosworth and 2 1 other ath- letes were suspended for 90 days for the presence of steroids in their blood systems. The flamboyant Bos- worth claimed it was unfair to punish him, under a law that didn ' t take effect until August, when the drug was in his system from a year ago. Goodwill Games It took more wheeling and dealing than a cor- porate merger, but Ted Turner created a new sport- ing event— The Goodwill Games. The games were intend- ed to bring the two super- powers back into competi- tion after two Olympic boy- cotts. The event, held in Moscow, stretched over 16 days and involved athletes from approximately 70 countries. The games were expect- ed to rake in $20 to 30 mil- lion for Turner, but poor at- tendance in the Soviet Un- ion and poor ratings in the United States turned the profit into a loss.

" National 201 nternational Daniloff framed Spies like U.S. Nicholas Daniloff On August 30, an American jour- nalist, upon com- pleting a five-year tour of Russia, received a " packet of newspapers " from a Russian ac- quaintance as a farewell gift. Nicho- las Daniloff, a writer for (IS. News and World Report, was seized by eight KGB men who opened his packet and found top secret maps and pictures of Soviet mili- tary equipment. The Soviet Union offered to release Daniloff and place him in custody of an American Ambassador if the United States would release prisoner Gennadiy Zakharov under the same conditions. " Gorbachev may have been pressured to make the trade-off for political reasons that he might not have otherwise done, " said Fred Lamer, chairman of the Mass Communica- tions Department. Initially, President Reagan refused to ex- change hostages but later agreed to the terms. " Regardless of the situation, one should stand up to what he feels is right, " James Tar- water said. " Reagan disregarded his priorities by backing down to the Soviet Union. " Reagan ' s decision was praised by some be- cause they viewed it as a step toward a summit. " Reagan made a good decision in trading, " Andrew Hampton said. " If he had kept Zak- harov in custody, he would have eliminated all hopes of a summit. At least he gave us a chance. " Reagan ' s decision did offer an opportuni- ty for progress. Spy charges against Daniloff and Zakharov were dropped and they were allowed to return to their respective countries. Despite Americans ' fears, Reagan and Gorbachev did hold a summit at Iceland, but it ended in a frustrating stalemate. They were unable to set a date for a full-scale summit in the United States; however, with the Daniloff case settled, the two major world powers could fully concentrate on an arms agreement and their superpower relations. □ Cara Moore Philippine revolt ends in bloodshed Twelve people were killed and dozens wounded on Janu- ary 22 when Marines fired at 10,000 demonstrators in Manila, Philippines.

Aquino felt the protests were legitimate and vowed justice for the 1 2 who were killed. " Aquino was trying to imple- ment land reform and break domination of the large land owners, " said Dr. Jerald Brekke, chairman of the Government Department. " It seemed to some people it wasn ' t happening fast enough, Aquino lost support from her powerful armed forces. The military divided because many of the soldiers owed al legiance to former president Ferdinand Marcos. " The military and some of the countrymen were still toy al to Marcos, " Carla Hawes said. " Until Aquino gained their loyalty and support, the country was in trouble. " □ Debbie Hunziger Attack on Libya: controversial issue The continued threat of terrorism against Americans, as well as several bombings and kidnappings, led to an 11 V2 -minute attack on Tripoli and Ben- ghazi, Libya. The April 14 raid lit up Libya ' s skies and killed 37 Libyans, including Col. Muam- mar Kadhafi ' s 18-month-old daughter, and two American pilots. The attack took place in the dead of night and was over in time for the early evening news. The bombing surprised students, as many gathered around televisions to watch the news reports. " I was shocked, " Cindy Lustgraff said. " Many of us on our floor watched the reports together. In my lifetime, this was the closest we had ever come to war and I was really scared. " The United States launched the air International strike in retaliation for the terrorists ' acts, which were believed to have been support- ed by Kadhafi. President Reagan cited a link between the Berlin discotheque U.S. Air Force and Navy jets attacked five targets inside Libya under cover of darkness in April. Among the targets was the Liby- an Naval Academy, shown in the photo, lo- cated in Tripoli. -Photo by Wideworld bombing and Libyan terrorism as evi dence that provoked the attack. Controversy surrounded the air strike from its beginning. Only three U.S. allies, England, Israel and Canada, supportec the attack. Other European countries cit ed the possibility of increased terrorism and therefore declined to support the raid. Others, such as columnist Seymour Hersh, thought the reasons given for the bombing were inaccurate and used tc blanket the real reason: wanting Kadhafi dead. Hersh noted Syria was also heavily involved in terrorism, but the United States did not take action against that nation. However, most Americans thought it felt good to fight back and finally do something about terrorism directed against their country. □ Lori Nelson ■ Prisoners of patriotism Americans prove to be captive audience " I didn ' t agree with the arms exchange because it meant more violence. " -Wanigasinghe Anger and frustration gripped the country as one by one, hostage ordeals proved a superpow- er could be brought to its knees by terrorism. Warfare had moved to a new level, and unwilling Americans and Europeans became bargaining tools in terrorists ' schemes to put pressure on the United States. Although President Ronald Reagan vowed to stop dealing with terrorists after the Iran arms scan- dal, it became apparent they weren ' t finished with him. In fact, the dealings of the past year seemed to be only the beginning of the ongoing hostage ordeal. Throughout many of the negotiations for hostages in the Middle East, Terry Waite was a prominent figure. As an envoy of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Waite had begun his hostage negotiations in 1981, when three missionaries were captured by radicals in Iran. Waite had met with the Ayatollah Khomeini and armed terrorists on several occasions in his negotiations for hostages. In successful missions, Waite assisted in the releases of several captives in Lebanon, including American churchmen Benjamin Weir and Father Lawrence Jenco and David Jacobsen, director of Beirut ' s American University Hospital. After almost 19 months in captivity, Jenco, a Roman Catholic priest from Joliet, 111., was released July 31. A former director of Catholic Relief Serv- ices in Beirut, Jenco had been kept in solitary con- finement for the first six months of his imprison- ment. Although Jenco reported no physical abuse, some students felt the United States should have taken a tougher stand with the kidnappers. " I didn ' t think it was fair for the Shiites to involve Americans in their problems, and I think the Unit- ed States should have tried to get the prisoners out, " Andrea Johnson said. " Then we should have taken some form of retaliatory action. " Another of the Americans held in Beirut, Jacob- sen, had been apprehended by six men while walk- ing to his office on May 28, 1985. Jacobsen was released after a period of negoti- ation between Waite and officials of the Islamic Ji- had, a Muslim fundamententalist organization with close ties to Iran. Jacobsen was a political prisoner for 17 months. With his release in November, 1986, came hope that other Americans in Lebanon would soon be freed. However, it also brought embarrassment for Reagan. After years of promising never to bar- gain with terrorists, he secretly permitted ship- ments of U.S. military equipment to Teheran. At first, the furor over the deal cut Waite ' s negotiations for the other hostages, but in Janu- ary, his contacts in the region became more recep- tive. It was thought Waite was the best hope re- maining for the captives, which included Terry An- derson, a correspondent for the Associated Press. Waite was working toward the releases of An- derson and educator Thomas Sutherland when reports surfaced indicating Waite himself had been detained by the Shiites. As the envoy ' s where- abouts remained a mystery and three other hostages were taken, the Reagan administration discussed possible steps against the captors. The White House had been burned in previous dealings, and students felt officials should weigh the consequences of the negotiations carefully be- fore striking any bargains. " The government did a good job to help the hostages, but I didn ' t agree with the arms ex- change because it meant more violence, " Sude- wa Wanigasinghe said. " There shouldn ' t have been arms involved in the negotiations. " □ Mike Dunlap, Hong Kok and Denise Pierce International agedies Chernobyl : Nuclear meltdown radiates fear — ncyclope- dia Britan- nica chose ■■■f as the » most im- portant H news event MttKtttm of 1986. Reports stated anywhere from two to 2,000 people died and possi- bly 5,000 to 75,000 more would die from the accident. The number of deaths though, was as questionable as the ac- cident itself. However, one fact stood out: Russia ' s Chernobyl meltdown was the world ' s worst nuclear disaster. The accident forced the evacuation of 135,000 people and caused $2.8 billion in damages. Even though the Chernobyl accident was the world ' s worst, Russia didn ' t provide any warnings or infor- mation until it was demanded by neighboring countries; and even then, very little was given. George Baratt, who traveled to Russia two months later, said, " It was rather unfair not being warned in advance; it wasn ' t the most humanistic thing. " Problems at the Chernobyl plant began Friday, April 25. Reports stated plant operators turned off several safety devices to conduct an experiment. " It went to show you that you couldn ' t take short cuts with nuclear energy, " Brent Camery said. Massive loss of coolant in the reactor ' s core caused fis- sion within the nuclear fuel rods. Without water to cool them, heat built up quickly. As the temperature rose, water turned to steam, eating through the walls of pressure tubes that carried water through the core. Graphite blocks surrounding the pres- sure tubes reacted with the steam to produce highly explo- sive gases. On Saturday the gases ex- ploded, igniting the graphite and blowing open the reactor core. Since the Chernobyl plant didn ' t have a contain- ment structure, a huge rein- forced concrete dome de- signed to prevent radioactive materials from escaping during an accident, gas and radioac- tive particles escaped into the air and drifted across Europe. " I thought Russia should have taken better safety precautions, " Laura Blumen- kemper said. " In my opinion, Russia was wrong to hold back information. " When nuclear particles were detected by the Swedes two days after the accident, expla- nations were demanded. At 9 p.m., Monday, a Moscow newscaster reported, " An acci- dent has taken place at the Chernobyl power station, and one of the reactors was damaged. Measures are being taken to eliminate the conse- quences of the accident. Those affected by it are being given assistance. A govern- ment commission has been set up. " This short statement only raised more questions, and when Russian news media fi- nally began covering the Cher- nobyl accident, reminders of past nuclear disasters were mentioned. " There were some articles about Three Mile Island which were used to take some of the pressure off the Russians, " Bar ratt said. Robert Gale , an American doctor, was also in Russia after the nuclear accident. Gale flew to Russia to assist in giving bone marrow transplants to people who were exposed to radiation. The most difficult time, Gale said, was when he, along with Soviet doctors, had to decide who to save and who could not be saved. While Gale was still in Rus sia, he had the opportunity to fly over the Chernobyl plant. Pictures were not allowed. According to Newsweek, " many of the details were a mystery to scientists in the out- side world, hidden behind walls of secrecy erected by the Kremlin to conceal history ' s worst nuclear accident. " □ Debby Kerr Party ends in death Arsonist claims 95 lives in Puerto Rico blaze One of the worst hotel fires in Ameri- can history took place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on New Year ' s Eve. The fire claimed the lives of 95 people, many of whom were Americans. The fire was the deadliest since the Atlanta Winecoff Hotel blaze in 1946 that killed 119 peo- ple and injured 106 vacationers and hotel staff members. Authorities believed the Dupont Pla- za fire started in the ballroom and swept through the casino that contained 200 people. The fire then raged from the lobby to the top of the 22-story hotel. The Dupont Plaza guests escaped by running up the stairway onto the roof where police and civilian helicopters came to their rescue. Many believed arson was the cause of the fire, but if the hotel had been equipped with water sprinklers, the fire could have been controlled. Governor Hernandez Colon called for three days of mourning following the tragedy. He also promised to enact legis- lation requiring hotels to have sprinkler systems. His actions though, were too late to save the victims of the Dupont Plaza fire.D Hong Kok A (J.S.

Af- ter 24 successful shuttle flights, the explosion of Challenger and the loss of the seven crew members was a tragic blow. The mechanical problem that led to the ex- plosion was located within days and later released by the Rogers Commission, a group of investigators appointed by President Reagan. A joint on one of the shuttle ' s two solid rocket boosters had failed, but this was not believed to be the sole cause of the disaster. Engineers at Morton Thiokol, makers of the faulty booster, were opposed to the launch be- cause of the unusually cold weather at Cape Canaveral. This finding had been reported to at least three of the highest decision making offi- cials responsible for launching Challenger. " The obvious lack of communication definitely needed to be fixed, " Amy Rice said. Other natural warnings went unheeded the morning of the launch such as the icicles that formed on the shuttle ' s gantry. The teams that inspected the pad failed to report to launch offi- cials that the ice was a hazard. Because of the social pressure of the thou- sands of children sitting in school waiting to be taught the first lesson from space, and commer- cial and media pressure, NASA launched Challenger. " NASA should have pushed ahead with cau- tious safety programs that would have restored confidence in the space program, " Jason Nor- ton said. While the commission continued to look for the possibility of human error in the demise of the shuttle and its crew, Navy divers found the broken space capsule sitting on the ocean floor. They were able to bring the crew ' s remains to the surface. As a result of losing astronauts, rockets and American support, NASA faced a bleak future. The rocket explosions hovered over them like a dark cloud and brought them to their own crash landing. □ Denise Pierce Derailment sidetracks Amtrak Drugs seemed to show up in the news with increasing frequen- cy: in sports, in show business and inevitably, in disaster. Drug use may have been a fac- tor in an accident in which an Amtrak passenger train and three Conrail locomotives collided near Baltimore, January 4. The acci- dent, the worst in Amtrak ' s histo- ry, killed 16 people and injured 175 others. Investigations revealed the Conrail engineers apparently failed to heed several signals to slow down as the train ap- proached a track intersection and accelerated instead. Rather than stopping to let the Amtrak pass, the Conrail entered the track and was struck by the Amtrak train. Tests found traces of marijuana in the two Conrail crewmen. It was not certain that drugs caused the accident, however; according to the Associated Press, tests showed the two men could have used the drugs as much as sever- al weeks prior to the crash. A week after the discovery of the drugs, members of Congress and the Transportation Depart- ment called for legislation requir- ing random drug testing of em- ployees in public transportation. Some felt the involvement of drugs in the accident was over- played. Others felt that accidents themselves received too much attention. " I thought if we publicized ev- ery car wreck as much as we pub- licized every plane crash and train derailment, our news would have been pretty full, " Nishi O ' Dell said. We didn ' t publicize every car wreck, of course. The headlines were still reserved for plane crash- es, train derailments and politics. And often, for drugs.

Then the happy ending shattered when Howser resigned February 23, citing persistent health problems as his reason for leaving. It had been just a few days before when Howser made his triumphant return to the Royals ' winter home, Fort Myers, Florida. Their manager of over five years Dick Howser had battled back and reached his goal of starting the 1987 season. As early as mid-May 1986, players and fans be- gan to notice changes in Howser. His physicians speculated the growth could have been present as early as October 1985, when Howser managed the Roy- als in the World Series. Just after the 1986 All- Star Game in July, Howser entered the hospital for a sore neck, and doctors found the tumor. After undergoing two operations and radiation treatments, Howser was making progress, and fans saw his return to the Royals as nothing less than miraculous. Still, he was showing signs of fatigue in February when he re-joined the team. Howser forgot a staff meet- ing and it became evident he was physically spent. Af- ter less than an hour in the Florida sun on February 23, Howser retreated to the clubhouse. " I knew when I took those steps and went back in the training room, it was over, " Howser said.

Acquired immune deficien- cy syndrome, once confined to homosexual males and in- trav enous drug users, began to pose a threat to the general public. It was estimated over two million Americans had been exposed to the AIDS virus. The Federal Public Health Service reported AIDS could have easily become one of the nation ' s top killers. Deaths from the disease could reach 54,000 a year by 1991 if the disease continued to spread. The statistics scared many members of the " straight " community. This was a com- mon view of many students. " I was very worried, " Alan Warner said. " It sure made you think about jumping in bed with just anybody. " Much of the fear was based on misinformation and lack of education. Rumors that one could get AIDS from toilet seats or casual contact were common and led to discrimi- nation against high-risk groups like prostitutes and Haitians. Many AIDS victims ' jobs were in jeopardy because fel- low employees refused to work with them. Several managers removed victims from their jobs as a result of other em- ployees ' demands; however, many companies implement- ed policies to keep AIDS Health sufferers employed. Discrimination was not con- fined to the job, however. Chil- dren who had AIDS were often barred from attending school by board members or the com- munity. In most cases, the stu- dents returned to school. " It sure made you think about jumping in bed with just anybody. " -Alan Warner Funds for the fight against the disease came from several sources. The government gave the National Cancer Institute approximately $50 million in extra aid for further study with an experimental drug. Elizabeth Taylor also helped raise funds for AIDS research by hosting a celebrity program. As a long-time friend of AIDS victim Rock Hudson, she felt Hudson ' s death could raise so- cial consciousness of the disease. A plan for better public edu- cation was outlined by U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop. He stated that children needed to learn about AIDS in school. Koop felt proper edu- cation was the best way to pre- vent further spread of the dis- ease. The government agreed to support a public program encouraging responsible sexu- al behavior. AIDS was definitely not a problem confined to the Unit ed States. Cases of AIDS hac been reported in almost ever nation. The African nations were af flicted worst. By January several hundred thousand peo pie had died and ai estimated five million peopli carried the virus. Some sma villages were almost complete ly wiped out by the disease which had been ragin through the continent sine the late 1970s. Nonetheless, with all th education and fund raisin fear ran through the nation. " I tried to assess people ' characters and be more cau tious about the women I nun around, " Doug Short said.D John Phillip Sex: proceed with caution A minister in Amherst, N. Y., handed out condoms to his congregation. Magazines of all types and some television stations advertised condoms as safe-sex products. Safe sex had become a national concern. This newly acceptable openness about personal safety during sex stemmed from serious public health concerns directed mostly at AIDS. However, this openness didn ' t arrive without controversy. Efforts to advertise condoms on televi- sion and to distribute them on college cam- puses offended many people who thought it only promoted an atmosphere of sexual permissiveness. Others supported the openness — arguing condoms were in- strumental in preventing the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases, including AIDS. " People would have been more apt to use them if they didn ' t have to walk to the Health Center, " Diane Watson said. " But 1 wouldn ' t want to be seen buying one. " College students were not the only ones who became aware of the risks of sexually transmitted diseases. Many high schools began sex education programs, which in- cluded teaching students it was okay to say no and also stressed responsible sex by us- ing protection. As many as two million Americans were believed to be infected with AIDS without realizing it. " 1 heard that by 1990, one out of every five people would have AIDS, " Stephanie Gonzalez said. " It scared me because it was such an epidemic and they had no way to control it.

Experts feared the widespread use of crack would lead to an increase in cocaine addiction because of its availability as an inexpensive and addictive form. Crack in the form of pellet-sized rocks was sold in small plastic vials for around $10. Unlike cocaine, it was smoked rather than snorted. The intensity of crack proved to be more trouble than expected. Authori- ties believed first-time users could eas- ily get hooked on the drug. Crack was also making headlines in the nation ' s newspapers and was a constant subject of news stories on TV. Northwest students were aware of the drug ' s existence but were unsure Crack, a refined, smokable form of co- caine may be the most addictive narcot- ic ever sold on the streets of America. -Photo by Wideworld about some of its effects. " I knew it could be 10 times more addictive than ordinary cocaine, " Jean Jones said. " You could get hooked easily the first time. " Problems that arose from crack ad- diction concerned many people. Ris- ing crime rates and overcrowded pri- sons were partially attributed to the ris- ing impact of crack. " Crack was a major problem for everyone and it had, to some extent, overtaken other drugs as the number one drug problem in the country, " Tonya Carson said. Authorities believed crack could dis- place heroin as the most addictive and dangerous drug on the streets. History reminded us of the 1960s and the social disorder associated with heroin, and some worried crack could cause history to repeat itself with dis- asterous results. " I thought this drug was becoming as dangerous as heroin, " Sallehudin Hasnan said. " If heroin was the drug of the ' 60s, crack was fast becoming the drug of the ' 80s. " D Hong Kok Health 210 Organizations m a g n Grcvps There were over 120 organizations, fraternities and sororities to keep us busy outside of classes. We joined some groups to gain friends and meet new people while others gave us recognition and information beyond our classroom learning. We spent money and time doing service projects for the people of Maryville and the surrounding area. The Accounting Society provided free income tax service in the spring. Many of the Greek organizations sponsored neighborhood cleanups. Greek Week, sponsored by Pan- hellenic and IFC, combined friendly competition and social activities into four days of fun and ex- citement for us. We didn ' t always do things on our own. Many organizations helped out with Special Olympics, the phone-a-thon and com- peted against each other in donating blood and cheering at football and basketball games. We also joined forces to collect food, adopt friends in the Big Brother Big Sister program and even adopt grandparents from local nursing homes. Together we were able to make things happen — imagine that.

If we couldn ' t help them, we referred them to someone else. " 1 he Ag-Business Econ Club was open to any un- dergraduate agriculture major. " We were there to stimu- late a scholarly and social interest in members who were interested in pursuing a career in ag business and economics, " President Neal Schatz said.

ATA provided agriculture education majors the op- portunity to gain informa- tion. One way this was ac- complished was through the Midway Conference. " The conference allowed us to get together with those who had been stu- dent teaching and the new members of Alpha Tau Al- pha, " President Tom Paul- sen said. The club also took part in campus and community events. " We entered the indepen- dent Homecoming house dec competition for the first year and won first place, " Paulsen said. " We also par- ticipated in the blood drive and we had the Adopt-a- Family for Christmas where we gave presents and a din- ner to needy children. " Q laining professional con- tacts and experience that would help its members in the future was what the American Marketing As- sociation (AMA) was all about. AMA ' s major event of the year was their annual Mar- keting Day. " We held our Fourth An- nual Marketing Day this year and it was probably our most successful one to date, " President Dawn Prall said. " Around 200 students turned out. " Five speakers from Oma- ha and Kansas City talked about everything from ad- vertising to health care marketing. __________ T, he goal of the Ameri- can Society for Personnel Administration (ASPA) was to help get members ready to enter the world of personnel management. " Being in ASPA gave the members insight into how personnel managers work- ed, " Jim Lauridsen said. To gain this insight, ASPA brought in guest speakers and went on field trips to see how personnel work was done. " Being a member gave me a better understanding of how business works and what management can do for a business, " Lynde Ahlschwede said. It takes a sharp eye to spot the right actor.

" Our three main objec- tives were to serve other people, to provide leader- ship and fellowship to other students and to help other people, " said Craig Rector, president of Circle K. Even though Circle K, a Kiwanis sponsored group, was small in membership, it did not prevent the mem- bers to help the communi- ty in raising funds and serv- ice projects. Besides the rock-a-thon, the organiza- tion also picked up potatoes at a local farm for the food pantry and sponsored a Hal- loween party at the nursing home. he promoting of infor- mation processing activities on campus was one of the many objectives of the Data Processing Management Association (DPMA).

" FCA was working on or- ganizing smaller chapters of its organization in high schools in the area such as Worth County High School. " We are striving to share the gospel with everybody on campus and to aid in spiritual maturity, " Guenther said. The organization also provided Bible studies and films for its members every week and invited ex- Kansas City Chief football player, Charlie Getty, to speak on the topic of commitment in one of the meetings. 7 he Finance provided the chance to further its members ' knowledge in the field of financial management and the opportunity to play in a nationwide stock trading game. Members dealt with schools around the country in stock trading very similar to Wall Street. The club also took a trip to Kansas City and toured the Federal Reserve Bank and the Board of Trade. Apart from that, the club in- vited Dr. John Baker, finance professor, to speak on tax changes. " I really enjoyed the opportunity to associate with my colleagues in a growing and learning at- mosphere within my major, " Edward Oster said. H lonoring outstanding students majoring or minor- ing in geography was an ob- jective of Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU). A national honor society, GTCJ sent pamphlets to its members and helped them be in- formed in the field of geography. " It also helped your re- sume because if you be- longed to GTU, your con- tacts will grow, " said Joan Pappert, vice president. With only three mem- bers, GTCJ organized an in- itiation to try and gain new members. " It ' s not an elaborate af- fair, just a speech by the president and the swearing in of the officers, " Pappert said. " I think this is a good organization since it gives recognition to outstanding geography students.

One of the highlights for Harambee was sending 14 of its members to Atlanta to participate in the celebra- tion of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ' s birthday. " We wanted to gain more knowledge of him and present it to the students here, so they would know what he stood for, " Vice President April Renfroe said. Have auction was part of Dieterich Hall Council ' s plan to raise money for new equipment. Sorority pled- ges were sold to residents to serve as cleaning ladies for a day. A scavenger hunt was Franken Hall Council ' s idea of getting bigger and better. The hunt required stu- dents to go door to door in Maryville collecting items. The items collected were then auctioned off as part of a fund raiser to purchase new equipment. " Franken Hall Council wanted students involved in more activities so they could meet new people and make new friends, " Resident Assistant Julie Dubed said. " It was a chance to get away from the books for a while. " H, lome-away-from-home was the goal Millikan Hall Council strived for. The council invited speakers for its Sexual Awareness Week in Febru- ary to talk to residents and arranged a self-defense demonstration of hap-ki-do in which they could partici- pate in. " We tried to have events going on every week and usually the activities were free, " President Vicki Ho- man said. r roviding activities forth residents was important to Phillips Hall Council. Activities organized by the council included a cam- pus clean-up, a food-drive, a Valentine ' s Dance and a Halloween haunted house. " Phillips Hall Council provided students a chance to make new acquain- tances, " Hall Director Wayne Viner said. T f he Horticulture Club was open to anyone with an interest in plants. Members had the oppor- tunity to increase their knowledge when the club went to St. Louis to visit the Missouri Botanical Gardens. The greenhouse provided students with hands-on ex- perience in horticulture. " I think by being in the club, members got a well- rounded perspective of plants in the greenhouse, " Newkirk said. " It helped fur- ther their knowledge of horticulture.

" I thought Perrin Hall Council promoted fun while meeting people and making new friends, " Rice said. " It also enriched the students ' lives on campus. " V space shuttle was sighted in Maryville during the Homecoming Parade, but the members of the In- dustrial Technology Club were responsible for its presence, not NASA. The club placed first in the float division, which helped them win the over- all supremacy award in the independent category. " Industrial Technology Club ' s goal was to provide an understanding of techni- cal skills and how they were applied to industry, " Kevin Patterson said. The club sponsored a contest for Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa high schools. Students brought woodworking and drafting projects they designed to be judged by a panel of profes- sors and area industrial arts teachers. " I enjoyed Industrial Technology Club a lot be- cause it bettered my rela- tionships with the profes- sors, " Patterson said. Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC) provided a foundation for rules and regulations for fraternity activities. IFC con- sisted of two representatives from each fraternity and four executive officers. The group ' s main responsibility was to govern rush activities. " Fraternities were allowed one smoker (alcoholic party) during rush, " Jay Hal- la said. " One of lFC ' s responsibilities was to en- force that rule. " IFC also helped the fraternities with Home- coming. " We encouraged partici- pation and reminded the fraternities of registration deadlines, " Halla said. IFC, along with Pan- hellenic, sponsored Greek Week.

In November, the group initiated approximately 100 members. " We benefited greatly from talking with other edu- cation majors and hearing about their experiences, " President Norma Higgin- botham said.

Sponsor Annelle Wey- muth taught a leadership seminar describing charac- teristics of those in authori- ty positions. " The seminar showed us what we needed to do in order to promote ourselves in the home economics profession, " Crisler said. " We learned how to submit impressive resumes and es- tablish contacts. " Ki L.DLX, the campus radio station, welcomed new and returning students to school with a dance held on the Student Union patio. " The dance was held to inform students about the station ' s existence and to let them get acquainted or re- aquainted, " Buddy Schwenk said. In October, KDLX held a Great Pumpkin party at Hy-Vee. " This was to get people to come into Hy-Vee, check out the specials the store had and listen to our broad- cast, " Sam Mason said. Hy-Vee contributed 2,000 hot dogs, 106 bottles of pop and 53 free lottery tick- ets to the public. " We were a student-run station fo r the students, " Schwenk said. " We hoped to increase our number of listeners and to represent the students the best we could. " reorganizing and re- grouping were priorities for Koncerned Individuals Dedicated to Students (KIDS). Because many members graduated, KIDS ' membership was low fall semester. This resulted in a January membership drive. The group was rewarded with record attendance and an increased membership. KIDS primary purpose was to provide children with a friend. " Being in KIDS benefited not only the children, " Mar- sha Mattson said, " it bene- fited us, too.

" KXCV provided a top quality news and fine arts broadcast 19 hours a day, 365 days a year, " Station Manager Sharon Carter said. In November, KXCV and KDLX sent two members to the Loyola Radio Confer- ence in Chicago. The weekend workshops co- vered tips on improvement of sales organization, on-air announcing, production and station management. KXCV was also different from other stations because of its Static-n-Stereo pro- gram, featuring new music from groups such as The Cure and R.E.M.

Working with the ROTC Rangers, the organizations were stationed at different positions surrounding the lake. They were to provide a barrier to students in the Escape and Evasion class. The class members had to break through the ROTC guard to reach their base camp. " It was challenging for the students to be as quiet as possible and also provided a good opportunity for them to use what they had learned, such as camou- flage and crawling tech- niques, " Julie Reed said. " We provided a tough bar- rier. Only about four of the 40 students were successful in reaching base camp. " " The organization ben- efitted students by helping to pay for schooling, and we benefitted our country by service in the military for two years, " Ron Wilmes said. " The ROTC also provided a good program of classes offered to any stu- dent, regardless of ROTC membership. " A ter evaluating applica- tions and electing new members, the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) recognized out- standing hall leaders who fulfilled the requirements. " It was an honor to be chosen, and it encouraged me to continue to be the best hall leader I could, " said Kathie Zierke, Hudson Hall director. Because a majority of last year ' s members moved off campus or graduated, the group attempted to obtain a larger membership by pub- licizing what the organiza- tion represented. " Frequently, the hall lead- ers put in a lot of effort and did all the dirty work for a hall with little appreciation, " President Laura Blumen- kemper said. " NRHH provided recognition to these devoted leaders from faculty and administration, as well as students. " a We treated you de- cently, " was how Father Tom Hawkins summarized New- man Center ' s atmosphere. At a weekend retreat, the group traveled to Concep- tion Abbey and participated in " inspirational discussion, " Elizabeth Hess said. On Saturday nights, New- man Center opened for a movie night with popcorn for all attending. Everyone was invited to play cards and other table games after the movie. " This gave students a chance to meet us and see what we were about, " Hess said. " It also let them know they could come here when they wanted to do some- thing, but couldn ' t find anything. " The group raised money by selling Christmas cards. The funds were used for the cost of movies and other ac- tivities, and were allocated by Newman Council. " We are the only organi- zation who provided reli- gious services on campus with our Saturday and Sun- day Masses, and I felt that was important, " Hess said.

Also, an an- nual jazz festival was held. Jazz Ensemble hosted Bobby Shew, a jazz trum- peter, who performed with Elvis Presley. During the festival, Jazz Ensemble per- formed with Shew. " Jazz band was important because, unlike woodwind ensembles or choir, stu- dents were involved with im- provisation, using their crea- tivity and ideas rather than reading straight sheet mus- ic, " David DeCamp said. 1_ iven though many staff members were inexperi- enced, the Northwest Mis- sourian received an ACP Four-Star Ail-American rat- ing in July for the previous spring semester.

" Being on Panhellenic Council and working with the different groups on rush was a good experience, " President Barbra Dempsey said. " It had all of the sorori- ties working together. " Formal Rush required hard work in order to keep it running smooth. Mem- bers made up booklets, sent letters to prospective rushees, talked to girls who didn ' t know all the aspects of what a sorority was, and signed up girls interested in joining a sorority. Members of the council, along with Inter- Fraternity Council (1FC) members, coordinated Greek Week. " Greek Week was really fun this year, " Dempsey said. " It was the highlight of the semester. It was tradi- tion. Each organization sang a song at the belltower. " There was a day of games which included ca- noe races, a chariot race, a picnic and a Greek dance at the end of the week. Approximately 60 people served on the planning committees for the events, not just Panhellenic Council members. " It will only get better now since it ' s been set up this way, " Dempsey said. In order to attain different ideas and expand knowl- edge, Dempsey attended the Mid-American Inter- Fraternal Council Associa- tion Mid-American Pan- hellenic Council Association conference in St. Louis. " The conference was really interesting because people were there from all over the country and I got to talk to our Sigma Sigma Sigma national president, " Dempsey said. " I had a lot of fun while I learned. " Its goal was the promotion of academic excellence in history, but Phi Alpha The- ta members also enjoyed participating in history- related activities. " Through membership in this organization, " Jason Norton said, " I improved my understanding of the field of history. " One activity the honor society hosted was A Taste of History Day.

" It was a good way to meet new people, " Richards said. " If anyone had a strong interest in music, I en- couraged him to join the group and be with others who had the same interest. " Jri Beta Alpha was a beneficial organization to all business majors. Anyone with a business major and holding a 2.5 gpa was quali- fied to join Pi Beta Alpha. This organization was a professional business as- sembly organized to foster the study of business and related fields. " We learned things like how to write a resume and how businesses were run, " Becky Hein said. A worker from Kansas City Power and Light gave a presentation to the mem- bers of the organization. " He told us things in general that would help us move up in the business world, " Hein said. Members took field trips to Kansas City, Omaha and also toured a local business. Some fund-raising activi- ties Pi Beta Alpha members participated in were holding raffles, sponsoring a car- wash, and placing second in the house dec competition during Homecoming with the theme being Noah ' s Ark. An increased member- ship boosted the learning experience in Pi Omega Pi. " It was a record member- ship year, " Maureen Doolan said. " There were only about 10 business educa- tion majors and they all joined the organization. We were a really close group. " It provided prospective business teachers an oppor- tunity to get together and exchange ideas about teaching. Members also dis- cussed various methods of making business a stronger subject at the secondary education level.

" We were not party- oriented, " Art Miller said, " but we were a very active organization that discussed the issues. " Members discussed polit- ics at their meetings. They tried to be impartial and ap- peal to both sides of issues. They also set up a candi- dates ' forum in which Sen. Pat Danner presented her views. N 1 he purpose of the Pre- Med Club was to get those students together who were interested in the medical field to discuss common goals and problems. " I met other people who were going through the same classes I was, " Wade Liston said. " It kept my eyes open to what was going on in the medical world. " In order to keep up on the latest medical informa- tion, Pre-Med Club spon- sored several local speakers. Dr. Twaddle, a dentist from Maryville, spoke to the group about his profession. Also, an alumnus gave a presentation about her job as a medical technician at the Iowa Methodist Hospital. M lembers of the Produc- tion Company learned the aspects putting on a radio or television production. " The organization was made up of mainly mass communications students, but anyone interested could join, " Lynn Moore said. " Be- ing in the Production Com- pany gave students a better understanding of what went into a production. " " We produced every- thing, we weren ' t just assist- ing a professional staff, " Rob DeBolt said. " We could get as involved as we wanted to be. " Information abot in psychology helped Psi Chi provide support for members. " Basically, it was a group of people interested in psy- chology who got together, " Rob Zirfas said. Psi Chi sponsored a new substance awareness pro- gram in which students were educated about cop- ing with drug and alcohol abuse. " It was just getting off the ground, " Zirfas said, " but the purpose of the new pro- gram was to increase drug awareness. We had several lectures at the Alumni House. " Kenny Thorn, director of the Eppley Treatment Center, gave a presentation in December on the aware- ness of chemical abuse in the family. " Working on programs of alcohol abuse, substance awareness and fund-raising were the main goals of Psi Chi, " Ray said.

According to Leigh Anne Petersen, the goal of the or- ganization was " to develop a better awareness of psy- chology and sociology for the people in these majors. " Membership, however, was left open to anyone with an interest in psychology or sociology. Presentations held during the year were on delinquen- cy and graduate school, while activities consisted of visiting the mental institu- tion in St. Joseph and as- sisting individuals compet- ing in Special Olympics. Peterson said the organi- zation gave members a chance to see and do these things " so they were not sur- prized by what they find when they finally got out of college.

" It helped us get a better hands-on feeling of what pr is like, " Vice-President Kevin Keith said. " It taught us things that classes didn ' t. " Other students agreed the practical skills added to their classroom knowledge. " It helped other organiza- tions and gave our mem- bers a chance to use their skills, " President Diane Wat- son said. " The experience we gained from working with other members was just as valuable as what we learned in the classroom. We had a lot of fun, too. " B r ►ringing the Christian or- ganizations closer together and promoting unity be- tween these groups was the purpose of Religious Life Council (RLC). " We tried to edify the stu- dents on campus, " Presi- dent David Watkins said. This year was the first time RLC hosted a speaker on campus. It was free and open to all students. David Story gave his personal ac- count of drug and alcohol abuse. " It was a success, " Wat- kins said. " We expected about 200 people, and over 500 came.

RHA ' " or oncentrated effort he ROTC Color Guard Drill Team was a program open to civilians as well as ROTC members. Members of the team were under no military obligation. The group provided color presentations for sports events and ceremonies for surrounding communities. They performed a POW- MIA presentation on cam- pus and presented the colors in the Homecoming and Special Olympics parades. " It was basically a com- munity service organiza- tion, " Cadet Capt. Jeff Koster said. T he ROTC Rangers, a social organization for peo- ple interested in the military, enjoyed a record member- ship. Twenty-two people, in- cluding five women, were enrolled in the program. " 1 thought anyone who joined benefited, " Platoon Sgt. John Bell said. " It was my third year and 1 was glad I was in it. It was an exciting organization. It tested me. " The Rangers participated in many physical activities, such as field trips and a Sur- vival, Escape and Evasion Weekend. Other activities included rappelling off Cold- en Hall and sponsoring an annual Turkey Shoot. " ROTC Rangers was per- sonally challenging, " Tam- my King said. " It helped me to be a stronger person by putting me in a leadership position. " T he members of Sigma Delta Chi worked toward in- novative journalism through their KNWTTV program, Meet the Campus Press. The television show fea- tured three student jour- nalists interviewing guests about campus issues. " I was pleased with the show, " President Nancy Finken said. " We made the campus aware that students were serious journalists. " Professional speakers en- lightened SDX members with discussions on appear- ance at interviews, handling stress and other problems journalists face. " I looked at news a lot differently, " Finken said. " 1 appreciated professional journalists for having gotten so far because I understood what they went through.

T he annual Bridal Show and the Big Sis program were just two of Sigma So- ciety ' s activities. Members became Big Sisters for students from Eugene Field Elementary School. Each member was as- signed a child to be their special friend. They then planned activities with that child at least once a week. " We went out to dinner, took walks and just had a fun time with them, " Presi- dent Mary Pristone said.

That gesture of kindness was just one of the services Student Managed Section of the American Home Economics Association provided. Elderly residents were remembered on holidays, receiving Valentine and Thanksgiving baskets. " I gained leadership through being secretary, " Wendy Miller said. " I learned responsibility by having to be organized and by taking minutes for the meetings. " 1 eachers fresh out of col- lege were expected to walk into their jobs and know ex- actly what they were doing. But teaching without ex- perience could be frighten- ing. Student Missouri State Teachers ' Associa- tion (SMSTA) dealt with that problem by preparing its members for teaching. On a field trip to the Kan- sas City Learning Center, members were informed on the use of resource materi- als available to teachers. This helped SMSTA mem- bers realize they would be relied on to teach those sub- jects to their classes. " After I was made aware of the professional aspect of teaching, I was more in- formed as to what was ex- pected of me, " Amy McCle- mons said. Scientific study occupies Rob Rohlfs ' spare time.

At home football games and most home basketball games, the Steppers could be seen performing routines and displaying daring stances. Captain Stephanie Carter said the number of mem- bers increased from 12 to 16 because " there were so many talented people we decided to expand the squad. " The Steppers performed with the band on a two-day tour to a Kansas City Chiefs game, and games at Central Missouri State University and the University of Iowa. During summer camp Steppers improved their routines and learned ideas for new ones. The camp was exciting for the girls be- cause they brought home three blue ribbons and the spirit stick. " It was really neat seeing ourselves improve more and more every day, " Carter said. w, hen the baby boom busted, the pool of potential college students dwindled. Realizing the importance of student recruiters, the University increased the scholarship for Student Ambassadors to $500. To become a Student Ambassador, someone who aided in campus recruit- ment and in the Admissions Office, one had to maintain a 2.5 gpa and go through several screening processes. By becoming a Student Ambassador, many benefit- ted by learning communica- tion skills. " When I joined, I wasn ' t involved with anything, " Jay Meecham said. . " By joining, I got to talk to and meet new people other than those on campus. It was re- warding to see the people you talked with on campus the next year.

" 1 got a lot of literature and good ideas w to help me in my teaching career. " Tower Choir performed each semester for a gener- al audience, at the annual Homecoming Awards Ban- quet and for area churches. Touring Iowa was another engagement on the choir ' s schedule, and they spent a day singing for three differ- ent high schools. " Our concert gave high school students the oppor- tunity to hear music they weren ' t accustomed to and what a college choir sound- ed like, " John Knorr said.

" Through 4-H, I learned different leadership skills, " Christie Barber said. " For example, 1 helped teach children skills, such as painting and cooking. " Officer training, a wor- shop for high school 4-H officers, gave the members a chance to apply know- ledge they had learned through their leadership positions. Tower 4-H had social functions ranging from video nights to a pizza party at Pizza Hut. The members prepared cakes and cupcakes for their bake sales and also held a garage sale. Th he Tower yearbook received its third consecu- tive Ail-American Award from Associated Collegiate Press for the 1986 Tower based on five marks of dis- tinction in copy, dis- play, coverage, content and photography. The yearbook scored 4,095 out of a possible 4,195 points, ranking it in the top 3 percent of all year- books in the nation. A history of excellence in- spired high goals for the 1987 Tower. " Because of past suc- cesses of the Tower, we set our goals high in order to maintain excellence, " said Scott Trunkhill, editor in chief. Tower staff members put forth hard work and dedica- tion in order to accomplish their quality-oriented goals. Trunkhill said that on busy weeks, he had worked as many as 70 hours on the book. Not all staff members expended as much effort, but each spent his share of time in the yearbook offices. Being on the yearbook staff gave practical ex- perience and taught mem- bers how to get along with each other under stress. " Yearbook has helped me in the area of photography, " Trunkhill said.

Directors were chosen by their past involvement in theatre. " People thought you had to take a directing class to be a director, but anyone with experience, such as co- producing a high school play or helping to direct a church musical, was ex- perienced enough, " Robert Shepard said.

" The fellowship I felt helped me cope with school and made me feel at home, " Janice Else said. Midweek worship and Sunday supper night were two well-attended events. Midweek worship consisted of an informal worship serv- ice on Wednesday night fol- lowed by a snack and time for students to get together and talk. Sunday night sup- per began with volleyball or recreation, then dinner was served. Students took turns preparing meals. The annual trip to Ben- nett Springs was a big event where the students and di- rectors packed up their tents and camped out for the weekend. Wesley Foun- dations from around the state met and held their council meeting. The high- light of the weekend was canoeing down the river. " Wesley gave students a chance to care for one another in a loving, Christi- an way and it was also a place to get your feet back on the ground when sched- ules got too busy, " Brad Bai- er said. 1 or the Young Keput cans, it was a year of rebuilding. Because of a lack of members, the or- ganization was inactive for most of the year. However, its members continued to participate in campus politics through other organizations like Stu- dent Senate, Political Science Club and Pi Sigma Alpha. They hoped that such activities would help the group revitalize. " The main purpose was to get organized and find members so we could start working on other projects, " Chuck Macy said.

Two thousand dollars was raised for MDA and 15 cases of Je -O were mixed for the ma ches. Another activity the AKLs excelled in was the Homecoming house dec competition.

" The house dec represent- ed the bombing of Pearl Harbor, showing the (JSS Arizona sinking with three Japanese fighter planes overhead. Being a part of AKL provided a special feeling for its members. " We didn ' t try to mold our members into something they were not, " Paulsen said.

The sorority was involved in chapter events, such as hosting an Alumni Tea dur- ing Homecoming week, an Octoberfest Dance, a for- mal at The Adams Mark Hotel in Kansas City and a Founder ' s Day Formal in November. In April the Alpha Sigma Alphas hosted a State Day which offered workshops and the opportunity for different chapters to get acquainted. " State Day was one of our major activities, " President Kerri McCoole said. " We planned all year to have Al- pha Sigma Alphas from Kansas and Missouri to come to Northwest.

CLH ft ed to the Q upport for the Delta Chi fraternity was sup- plied by their little sister or- ganization, Chi Delphia. Association with the Chi Delphians meant more than just wearing a sweatshirt with Greek letters. " I really enjoyed sister- hood between all the girls, " said Johann Caldwell. " We Some were friends with all the more p guys and it was just a lot of fun. " The Chi Delphians did have an identity of their own. They participated in a number of activities unrelat- ty.

" It wasn ' t a rivalry be- tween us and them, I think the game was more just for fun than anything else, " Ka- thy Baker said. The Chi Delphians also participated in intramural games, such as swimming and softball. " Some sports we had more participation than others, but we really had fun, " Baker added. Baker felt that being a Chi Delphian gave her a chance to have some fun without going all Greek. B, coasting 75 active mem- bers and 20 spring pledges, the Delta Chis were the lar- gest social fraternity on campus. The accomplishments of Delta Chi didn ' t stop with mere manpower, however. For the last two years, they have won the Best Greek Organization Award, and this year they won Home- coming Supremacy and were recognized by their na- tional headquarters for be- ing one of the 10 best chap- ters in the region. A common complaint of Greeks was that pledgeship changed a person, usually in a negative way. The men of Delta Chi encouraged just the opposite. " We really tried to let people be themselves, " President Greg Wirtz said. " We tried to maintain individuality. " With so many members, the Delta Chis had the op- portunity to help a given cause and they realized this. Their services to the com- munity and to the Universi- ty included a March of Dimes Block Walk, partici- pation in the University phone-a-thon, a Head Start Christmas party and spon- sorship of a Home Handy- man Week, where they did odd jobs for the elderly. " You really got to meet a lot of neat people, " Wirtz said. " It was a good feeling. " Ocholastics came first for Delta Sigma Phi fraternity and for its members, educa- tion was taken seriously. Delta Sig ' s earned the highest gpa among fraterni- ties the last two years. Leadership was also stressed for members of Delta Sigma Phi. Members participated in the Engineer Leadership Program which taught them how to set goals and what to expect in the future. " Delta Sigma Phi shaped my leadership abilities, giv- ing me a chance to express my own views and build self confidence, " Steve Steffens- meier said. " At school you learned these skills, while here you practiced them. " Not only did Delta Sigs concentrate on helping and improving themselves, but others benefited from their fraternity also. Delta Sigma Phi helped with March of Dimes, partic- ipated in Neighborhood Watch, helped with various cleaning and maintenance work for a nearby nursing home and raked leaves for neighbors. " We helped ourselves as well as others, while becom- ing more well-rounded in- dividuals, " Jim Sklenar said.

Prizes in Greek Week, Homecoming skit, sorority float and best overall float chosen by the Chamber of Commerce got their momentum going for a year packed with activities. They kept the ball rolling by throwing a Christmas party with the Delta Chi men in honor of the Head Start children. Other service projects included a canned food drive, donations to World Hunger and the Gaul- ladet School for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired. A special service project the Delta Zeta ' s particpated in was corresponding with a blind man from Georgia.

Men of Northwest was a second-year money making project for the sorority. It featured Greeks and in- dependents on a calendar and was sold on campus and in Maryville. Some social activities in- cluded a hayride, spring in- formal and mystery dates. " One of the projects we concentrated on was rush, " Diane Watson said. " I think we did a good job with it, plus we gained around 30 new members. " But in between all their activities, the girls still had time to be themselves. " We accepted each other for what we were, " Tina Hale said. " We didn ' t have a spe- cial air about us like some sororities did, and we didn ' t put on a show for anybody. " 1 he Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity was in their se- cond year of recognition at Northwest. Since they received their charter on March 25, 1985, their projects have had a positive influence on Northwest, as well as the community. The Kappas participated in Community Care Day, where they captured first place. Other awards includ- ed a first place finish in the Psych Soc. skate party. They also received the Dis- tiguished Chamber Of Commerce Award. Some community events the Kappas were active in were sponsoring a food drive for the needy families of Maryville, painting for the elderly and installing picnic benches in the parks. " I liked being in the frater- nity because I got to work in the community, " Daryl Reed said. 1 hey said behind every good man, there ' s a good woman. Luckily for the Kap- pa Alpha Psi fraternity they had their Kappa Sweet- hearts. Kappa Sweethearts were the little sister organization of Kappa Alpha Psi fraterni- ty.

" There was a joy in representing Kappa Alpha Psi. 1 liked their various ac- tivities and what they represented, " President Monica McDade said. " What I liked most about being a Sweetheart was the feeling of being important and appreciated by my brothers and sisters. " With some Sweethearts becoming active in the fall semester, the outlook for more pledges was hopeful. Requirements for member- ship were small in number, but crucial to their success. " There was one main re- quirement for membership, and that was, you had to be truly interested in Kappa Al- pha Psi, " McDade added.

One of the biggest highlights for the sorority was capturing the Homecoming Supremacy award for sororities for the ninth consecutive year. Along with winning supremacy, other goals of the Phi Mus were to have a successful rush, continue work on community proj- ects and raise funds for their philanthropies, Project With steady concentra- tion, Greg Coffer contributes his efforts to the Phi Sigma Kappa house dec.

Still, Phi Mu was active on campus, promoting the Greek system and sister- hood, as well as working hard on academics. " We really stressed in- dividuality, " Romero said. " We had a lot of girls in- volved in campus activities. " Ptriving for excellence was what Phi Sigma Kap- pa fraternity emphasized in order to expand on their image. " Phi Sigs had a winning ambition and set out to be number one in everything we did, " Gary McBride said. Even though Phi Sigma Kappa had a winning repu- tation, their record of cap- turing Homecoming Su- premacy for eight consecu- tive years was broken. This loss only made Phi Sigma Kappa members want to work even harder to turn the win around once again. " Basically, it (the loss) woke us up and made us realize supremacy wouldn ' t just be given to us, " Doug Pilcher said. Besides Homecoming ac- tivities, Phi Sigma Kappa members held a Christmas party for Head Start children and participated in commu- nity cleanup. Be roasting more chapters than any other organization in the United States was something that few had the privilege of doing. The men of Sigma Phi Epsilon were among those few. " It was good to know our nationals were so strong, " Secretary Andy McEvoy said. " Not only was there a sense of security, but it was also nice to know there were literally hundreds of thousands of Sig Eps out there. " The Missouri Lambda chapter prided itself on its well-roundedness. They received second place last year in both intramurals and scholarship— a title they hoped to regain. " After winning the award five years consecutive, it was kind of a blow to finish second, " Scholarship Chair- man Tim Tadlock said. " We took a number of steps to hopefully get the trophy back. " Possibly the most obvious changes to the organization came in the way of remodeling their house. An addition was built to the rear of the house, as well as a to- tal renovation of their chap- ter room. While they enjoyed hav- ing fun, the Sig Eps knew the value of giving and shar- ing. Their services to the community and university included work with the Spe- cial Olympics, Maryville Can Drive, Phone-a-thon and their latest activity — participation in the Wells Hall Big Brother Program. Dressed as a boxer, Collin Reese announces the events at the Sig Eps ' Beer Olympics competition.

" We were there for the guys, " Jill Aldredge said, " but we also did a lot of things ourselves, like the Omsbudsman. " The Ombudsman Pro- gram was designed to pro- tect the rights of senior s Sig Ep Golden Hearts ' i riii ' 1 ■m I citizens and the residents of nursing homes. Northwest ' s : chapter of Golden Hearts was the first chapter in Mis- souri to start this program. During the summer, the Sig Eps and the Golden Hearts got together for a weekend and talked about old times, partied and had fun. " We just got together af- ter not seeing each other for two months and partied, " Susan Goodwin said. " It was fun. " Mgma Sigma Sigma found strength in numbers with their membership leap- ing to 72, the highest ever. The Tri Sigs took in 26 new members during fall formal rush, which made them the largest sorority on campus. It also meant that they were unable to have informal rush in the spring, because they had already met their quota for new members. The Tri Sigs reached another important number in April, celebrating their 60th anniversary on cam- pus. They celebrated with Salute to Sigma, a banquet attended by present and past members of Sigma Sigma Sigma. A special ef- fort was made to contact and recognize 50-year members and Tri Sig par- ents were also invited. The Tri Sigs took a per- sonal approach to campus involvement, encouraging members to get involved in other groups on campus. O- ne fraternity succeeded in reaching a plateau une- qualed by any other frater- nity on campus. Sigma Tau Gamma celebrated its 60th anniversary in April. The fraternity was the first one on campus, estab- lished in 1927. " It made me proud to know we had a lot of tradi- tion in our fraternity, " David Long said. Another precedent set by the Sig Taus was being the first fraternity to move off campus. The fraternity has lived in their house since 1967. The Sig Taus house re- cently underwent reno- vations. " During the work weekend this summer, we put a new deck on the front and back porch, " Long said. The Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity received attention from their national head- quarters. " At our Grand Chapter meeting, we were first run- ner up for most improved chapter, " Todd Slagle said. " We also received the Best Chapter in the Region award. " With only 40 men in the chapter here, the Sig Taus exemplified that it was qual- ity, not quantity that counted.

The fraternity put a great deal of effort into commu- nity service. " We had a tradition in helping the surrounding community, " Terry Pederson said. " This year was no exception. " Each semester the TKEs cleaned up their neighbor- hood, as well as downtown. They also sponsored an Easter egg hunt for the neighborhood children. But one of the most special times for the TKEs was at Christmas. " We went into the local department stores and they donated gifts for the men- tally disabled children of Mount Alverno, " President Rod Hernandez said. " We showed them someone cared for them at a very special time of the year. " As a result of supporting community and national projects, the TKEs were awarded regional and na- tional honors. " Everyone attended the regional and national con- ference meetings, " Peder- son said. " We won the Regional Outstanding Par- ticipation Award. We were also the youngest chapter to annunciate 1,000 members in over 270 chapters. " Although the TKEs were involved in so many com- munity and national pro- jects, they found time for themselves. " TKE has been a lesson in sharing and leadership experience, " Hernandez said. " It prepared me for a leadership position later on in life. " ■ ig Tau Little Sis- ters, the White Roses, were not worried about gaining members for their organiza- tion, instead they worked toward gaining respect in the Greek system. " Our main concern was to grow, build and gain respect, " President Leslie Cummings said. " We worked most on communi- ty projects, like decorating the retirement home. Be- cause we were basically a new organization, we need- ed to prove ourselves. " The White Roses held the regional fraternity meetings as area fraternities came to Northwest in November for this event. " It was a lot of hard work, " Cummings said. " The girls If a group required support to accomplish a task, then the TKEs relied on their lit- tle sisters, Daughters of Diana. Daughters of Diana spent their money and time help- ing their TKE brothers. " We started an annual flag football tourney, " Anita Malcom said. " We thought it would be a good idea, and we used the funds to help out the TKEs. " Aside from supporting the TKEs, the Daughters accomplished goals of moral values and long- lasting friendships. " It was fun, " Shelly Lun- ning said. " I met a lot of people and had close friendships with TKEs. It has been great. " A semester ' s tuition was the grand prize in the TKE ' s fall raffle. Scott Helm drew the name of the winner. -Photo by Rich Abrahamson Abbas, Add 170, 251 Abbett, Dean 258 Abbett, Karen 216, 240 Abrahamson, Richard 156, 237, 247 Accounting Society 211, 212, 213 Acker, Susan 218 Acton, Diana 231, 242 Adams, Daniel 10 Adams, Jeffrey 59, 170 Adams, Russell 97, 170, 232 Adams, Rusty 82 Adamson, Susan 264 Adamson, Teri 156 Adbul, Yakime 216 Adcock, Mark 240, 252 Adeyemi, George 87 Adkins, Paul 156, 215, 229, 254 Adkisson, Lori 170 Advisers 40, 41, 42, 43 Aery, Shaila 12 Ager, Michelle 256 Agriculture Business and Eco- nomics Club 212, 213 Agriculture C lub 212, 213 Agriculture Council 212, 213 Agronomy Club 115, 214 Ahlschwede, Lynda 216, 217, 261 Ahrens, Michael 134, 156, 218, 223 Ahuja, Sunil 170, 240, 242, 251 Ainsworth, William 156, 216, 252 Akers, Mitchell 156, 239, 240, 242 Al-Darazi, Fawzi 56, 216 Albertini, Virgil 126, 127 Albright, Rodney 263 Alder, Lisa 221, 229, 248 Aldredge, Jill 98, 99, 264 Alexander, Tim 100 Aley, Terry 170, 236, 252 Al-Khateb, Khalid 251 Allely, Rick 170, 226, 227 Allen, Barbara 174, 261 Allen, Chris 74, 76, 77 Allen, Jeff 47, 230 Allen, Pamela 170 Allgood, Jody 170, 245, 258 Allison, Cliff 57 Allison, Courtney 234, 256 All-nighters 50, 51 Alpha Beta Alpha 214, 215 Alpha Kappa Lambda 4, 18, 24, 30, 256, 257 Alpha Kappa Lambda Little Sis 256, 257 Alpha Mu Gamma 214, 215 Alpha Phi Alpha 214, 215 Alpha Psi Omega 216, 217 Alpha Sigma Alpha 7, 22, 32, 256, 257 Alpha Tau Alpha 216, 217 Alpough, Ronald 226, 252 Alsup, Deanne 170 Alsup, Richard 97 Alt, Edward 218 Alt, Sherry 150 American Marketing Associa- tion 216, 217 American Society for Person- nel Administration 216, 217 Amstutz, Heather 247 Andersen, Debra 170 Anderson, Amy 87, 263 Anderson, Arleen 170, 256 Anderson, Arlin 216, 232 Anderson, Brad 216, 258 Anderson, Darryl 258 Anderson, Jeffrey 216 Anderson, Jocelyn 156, 216, 251 Anderson, Julie 248 Anderson, Kevin 170, 215, 218, 224 Anderson, Lori 170, 258 Anderson, Steven 218 Anderson, Theresa 170, 261 Andrews, Al 82, 132, 133, 150, 156, 224, 231 Andrews, Jeffrey 82, 83 Angermayer, Michelle 170 Angeroth, Cynthia 252, 284 Anthony, Toni 14 Antle, Diana 170, 221, 256 Anzalone, Victor 170 Apland, Sarah 156, 224, 225, 242 Apland, Todd 156 Apostol, Troy 125, 170, 237, 247 Arai, Mami 156 Archer, Steve 45 Argotsinger, Kenda 170, 232 Aring, Kelly 170 Armstrong, David 170 Armstrong, Kathy 10 Armstrong, Kevin 170 Arnold, Kirk 234 Arterbery, Rebecca 156 Asberry, Myrna 82, 83 Ashbaugh, Lisa 170 Association for Computing Machinery 218, 219 Aubrey, James 170 Avila, Maria 170 Avoiding Homework 36, 37 Bachali, Mark 159 Back to School 16, 17 Baier, Brad 170, 252, 254 Bailey, Kendal 170 Bainbridge, Todd 74 Bair, Randal 156 Baker, Brenda 236, 237 Baker, C.

magazine covers, talk shows, movies and commercials in an effort to make it to the top. Along the road to suc- cess, the stars also received high ratings in the hearts of Americans. At the beginning of the television season, eyes were focused on talk shows as viewers wondered who would win the talk show war. Joan Rivers attempted to boot Johnny Car- son out of his spot as late night king of talk shows, while newcomer Oprah Winfrey managed to give Phil Donahue a run for his money. Veteran talk show host David Letterman went unchallenged in the rating war as he celebrated his fifth season on the air. Talk show hosts weren ' t the only personal- ities around. Absent from the big screen, Pee Wee Herman found a huge following in Saturday morning television as children watched him play in his magical kingdom. There were many other personalities that made the year stand out in the area of outrageousness. One of these personalities was Bette Mi- dler who made a strong comeback to Holly- wood in three movies. The year was highlighted by numerous personalities, some were role models and others were just plain jokes. The entertain- ment spectrum thrived with the new perso- nalities while people cheered on.D Kevin Sharpe After the failure of " Legend, " Tom Cruise regained his position in the spotlight through his roles in " Top Gun " and " The Color of Money. " From fortune to fame, Van- na White became a popular television personality as the co-host on " Wheel of Fortune.

Paisley designs complimented shirts, sweaters, jeans, tuxedoes, ties and panty hose. Mini skirts returned after a decade of hemlines scraping the knees. Broaches ac- cented blouses while penny loafers and flat top hair cuts were seen again. Clothing wasn ' t the only returning trend. Music our parents grew up with returned to the air waves. Such hits as " Venus, " " Twist and Shout, " " Bang-A-Gong " and " Lean On Me " were classics reworked with a touch of today ' s style. In addition to songs, several groups returned as well. The Monkees were on top of the come back list with their reunion and their nation- al tour as well as their revived television program. Also climbing the come-back list was Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Sixties Soul, who returned to drive another generation down a " Freeway of Love. " Looking back at different generations proved to be big bucks at the box office. " Stand By Me " and " Peggy Sue Got Married " were examples of such nostalgic movies. Whether nostalgia was found in clothing, music or movies, the current generation learned from those before them. With the sight, sound and soul of the past, students discovered that moving into the future meant stepping into the past.D Kevin Sharpe The Monkees were back in the spotlight as they released a new album of new and old music, staged a reunion tour and their old television shows were rebroadcast.

" Dawn Williams It seemed all they did was work on the yearbook. Their social lives were put on hold; they paid room and board for places they rarely saw, and they often caught up on sleep during other classes. Students started calling them yearbook geeks and strangely enough the Tower staff didn ' t mind. All the long hours and hard work hardly seemed worth it at times. But why did athletes thrive on pain? Why did ROTC personnel play war games in the woods? And why did students pull all-nighters to study for tests? The rea- sons were the same for yearbook geeks. The Tower yearbook held a reputa- tion of excellence at Northwest and had earned national recognition since 1979. Behind each Tower, there was a staff which set out to carry on this repu- tation. The 1987 Tower staff was no exception. " When I became a staff member, I wanted to make sure my work lived up to the Tower ' s traditon of excellence, " Dawn Williams said. Although they were dedicated, hard- working and took pride in their work, there were still obstacles to overcome. The Tower staff was very diversified. It consisted of greeks and independents; freshmen and seniors; the wholesome and the not-so-wholesome; foreign stu- dents, Missourians, Nebraskans, Io- wans and even one from Wyoming. J m Editorial Staff Front Row: Scott Trunkhill, Lori Nelson, Kevin Fullerton and Colletta Neighbors. Back Row: Chris Townsend, Debby Kerr, Laura Widmer, Kevin Sharpe and Nancy Meyer. The Tower staff used these differences to the ir advantage, though. " There were so many people with so many different interests that we managed to cover a wide spectrum of what Northwest was all about, " Index Editor Kevin Sharpe said. " Because there were so many different views, we gained not only insight, but ways of relating with other people. " As a result of many personalities, many staff members began acting and even thinking like others. Editor in Chief Scott Trunkhill, who was known for being on the timid side, actually got mad one time. Production manager Colletta Neigh- bors now knows that Washington D.C. is not in the state of Washington and lasagna should never be cooked on preheat. People Organizations Editor Chris Townsend, and Activities Editor Debby Kerr, experienced the trials and errors of being handicapped after taking the adviser ' s wheelchair for a spin through ASAP. Everybody learned laughing was the only means of yearbook survival. The staff not only laughed with one another, but laughing also helpe d when crying seemed more appropriate. When sto- ries disappeared in the typesetter, when the clock showed 4 a.m. and when pictures had to be printed five and six times before they were ap- proved, laughter always soothed the frustration. " Laughing seemed to be a more positive outlet, " Photography Editor, Nancy Meyer said. " If 1 would have got- ten upset every time pictures had to be reprinted, I would have gotten ulcers. " Much of the staff ' s positive outlook could be attributed to adviser Laura Widmer. Widmer picked up when they didn ' t have energy to continue and reminded them what they were striving for. Widmer taught the Tower staff that there was more to producing a year- book than just having journalistic know- ledge — a successful yearbook depend- ed on attitudes. It was these attitudes of dedication that earned the Tower staff the right to be called yearbook geeks, and they were proud of it.D Debby Kerr Staff December Fog A couple strolls across campus in the midst of midnight fog.
