Rather, we learned about teamwork, other cultures and ourselves through extracurricular activities and in our free time. page 8 ACADEMICS Higher academic standards and new requirements for incoming freshmen were only part of the changes in academia. Meanwhile, the electronic campus continued to attract students. page 72 brvyKlu It was a year of extremes as we witnessed the baseball team complete its second consecutive record- setting season. However, we also saw our football team, who started the season ranked 4th nationally, end their season 2-8-1. page 120 v7l Vi Ur Participating in organizations was a big part of our lives. We chose them for various reasons, and we had an increased number of op- tions than in years past, with Student Senate officially recognizing more groups and several forming. page 158 r tvyr Lb What we had in common couldn ' t dispel our individuality.

We returned in the fall to once again find ourselves part of an all-time record enrollment. The number of new students boosted us well over the 6,000 mark, a first for Northwest. As In years past, parking and overcrowding posed problems. However, minor complaints like these were strongly overshadowed when we fought to liberate Kuwait from Iraqi forces. For the first time our generation witnessed the realities of war as they happened. With all its repetition, the year was an eye-opener for all of us. We could only wonder what was left to happen...

Tb really appreciate our University, however, we first had to find a place to park. Despite measures taken to improve parking, we still had difficulty finding a close spot where we wouldn ' t get ticket- ed. The parking system went back to resi- dent and commuter lots, and new lots were added behind Millikan Hall and the Valk building. But the parking situation took a step backward when the lot be- tween Dieterich and Millikan was convert- 1 , f Delta Slg ' s cheer on the ' Cats dur- eU 10 COnierenCe mg the Missouri Southern home footbsll game.

As Student Life Division 9 DEJA VU All Over Again Past repeated in present as year unfolds, proving there ' s nothing new under the sun By Tferesa Mattson It went without saying that every genera- tion was characterized by significant trends or events. However, it seemed the things by which students would remember the year indicat- ed a swing into the past. A love affair with the ' 60s and its atti- tudes, fashion and music had started be- coming stylish a few years earlier Initially, it may have started with an attraction to a time when the na- tion ' s youth shook off societal expecta- tions. While love beads didn ' t make a tre- mendous comeback, the social conscious- ness of the ' 60s did, making civil rights and the environment two of the hottest is- sues of the year. Another blast from the past appeared on the silver screen. Where " Batman " had been the block- buster of the summer • before, this summer brought another oldie but goodie to the forefront when " Dick Tra- cy " became the must-see. On campus, evidence of history repeating itself was everywhere. The house on the comer of 7th and Wal- nut once again became home to a fraternity. Delta Sigma Phi. The house, which had been Christ ' s Way Inn since 1978, used to be oc- SOAP POURED INTO the Administration build- ing fountain causes quite a spectacle. After being dormant, the fountain was returned to working order in the fall. Photo by Brandon Russell cupied by another fraternity, Alpha Kappa Lambda. In an ongoing effort to beautify the cam- pus, features of some campus symbols were reimplemented. The fountain near the Ad- ministration building was repaired so it was once again in working condition. Like the fountain, the Bell Tbwer had lost something since it was first built. It used to be light- ed, but the lights had been unhooked due to vandalism. The lights were added this year, making a significant Universi- ty emblem shine at night. Of course, some- times the repetition of history was un- desirable. While we started out national- ly ranked, it wasn ' t long until our foot- ball season became mediocre, resembling seasons prior to the last one. Before serving as temporary housing in the most recent years, Colbert Hall had been closed for on-campus living. However, due to high demand for residence-hall rooms because of increased enrollment, the hall reopened. Many of the big stories of the year seemed to be linked to the past. While everyone con- tinued to make their own history, it was also a year when what went around came around. 10 History Repeats Itself ANOTHER YEAR OF overcrowding makes it necessary to reopen Col- bert Hall. Full-time resi- dents had not lived in the hall for five years.

The sounds of tambourines and harmonicas are floating through the air The court jester, in his splen- did decor, makes fun of some poor commoner. People munch on giant turkey legs and walk around, spout- ing such words as " thou " and " nay. " Members of Northwest Celebration became part of a similar scenario when they performed at the annual Kansas City Renaissance Festival on September 30. According to Dr. Rich- ard Weymuth, associate professor of music and director of Celebration, the day ' s activities were both educa- tional and fun. " Being at the Renaissance Festival was just totally exciting, " Weymuth said. " It was really fun to be part of such a big production. I loved to watch the kids perform. It was a real natural high to be in front of so many people. It also helped us to get pre- pared for future performances. " The festival was held in Bonner Springs, Kan. It was a recreation of a 16th century village, with enter- tainment and booths featuring hand- made crafts. Among the many attractions were jewelry designers, elephant rides and a dunking booth titled " Drench a W6nch. " Celebration member Laura Gripp eiyoyed the atmosphere. DAVE SCHIDLER PLAYS fashion show announcer, using the title of the next song to describe Kara Weston ' s dress. Pho- to by Don Carrick " It was a great day, " Gripp said. ' ' The weather was perfect and every- thing there was so interesting. " The costumes the 26 Celebration members and their four accom- panists wore were replicas of royal fashions in 1585. Costume makers sewed the outfits, patterning them after clothing styles of dukes and ladies-in-waiting. The men sported tights and long tunics. The women wore long dresses in rich colors and flowered patterns. Jamey Bartlett felt the costumes added to the ambiance. " The costumes definitely helped to get me into the mood of the day, " Bartlett said. " It was almost like I had stepped back into a whole differ- ent world. " Celebration sang in five, 30-minute productions at the festival. Before each song, a short skit involving var- ious students was acted out. The pur- pose of the skits was to introduce the upcoming song. One skit that got a lot of laughs was Darren Parker and Kyle Gordon ' s spoof of the bodybuilding " Saturday Night Live " characters Hans and Franz. " It was a real rush, " Gordon said of the enactment. " I loved doing it, though it took a lot of concentration. I think the crowd really eryoyed it. " As Celebration sang, groups of peo- ple clustered around them. In order to keep the crowd ' s attention with all the distractions that were surround- ing them. Celebration had to put forth extra effort. " There was so much going on while we were singing that we had to work harder to keep contact with our au- dience so they wouldn ' t leave to go do something else, ' ' Ed Huenemann said. A favorite saying of Weymuth ' s was " Be the best you can be at all times with the talent that you have. " Northwest Celebration took that say- ing and made it the core of all they participated in.

Pho- to by Don Carrick 14 Orientation Peers Aid Adjustment Throughout Orientation the Advantage team helped to ease the transition from home to college By Dale Brown Although most students were still eiyoying their summer vaca- tions, Northwest was busy preparing for its nationally-renowned Fresh- man Orientation Week. Peer Advisers, Resi- dent Assistants and Student Ambassadors, among other volunteers, all took part in the Advantage program which helped incoming freshmen ac just to the oddities and rigors of life on a college campus. " We had a lot of activities for the students that helped them get to know each other and get their minds off home, " Troy Oehlertz, North Complex head R.A., said. " Many of them had some strange questions like if they could take their beds home with them. Some of the women ' s parents even said they didn ' t need a front door key since they would al- ways be in before midnight lockout. " Oehlertz felt things went smoothly, overall, considering the chaos of first week activities. Student Ambassadors played a key part in the Advantage week by helping with regis- tration, Freshman Olympiad, Playfair, Par- ents ' Seminar and Casino Night. " I felt Advantage was eryoyable for fresh- men, " Jill Erickson, Student Ambassador, said. " Many students came to us with ques- tions or problems because we had all been there and knew what it was like. We helped them adjust to college both academically and socially. ' ' Many freshmen appreciated the help given to them during their first week on campus since many of them had never been away from home for a long length of time. " I was excited about being out on my own, but I didn ' t really know what to expect and how I would feel for the first few weeks, " Gary Kirkpatrick said. " Having some people around that had been here and weren ' t too old and gray to talk with made the switch smoother ' ' Campus Activity Programmers also provid- ed some entertainment breaks from the aca- demic testing associated with Advantage week by sponsoring a variety of activities ranging from dances, comedy acts and mo- vies, to hypnotist Jim Wand. Attendance of the events was high and many of the students ergoyed the opportunity to interact. In the end, playing mom and dad for a few days was just another job associated with be- ing on the staff of the Advantage program. Although they didn ' t always have the an- swers or solutions, the thought of just being present or around to listen helped add secu- rity to the freshman ' s life.

Who were these people that were so intrigued by the excite- ment and support a Greek organization obviously provided? They were the nearly 600 freshmen and upperclassmen who participated in Rush to find out exactly what Greek life could offer them. " A lot of college interns I worked with this summer said they always had a good time, " Richard Green, Alpha Kappa Lambda pledge, said. " They said the fraternity helped them with their grades during pledge- ship in addition to always having someone there to look after them. " During a two-week Rush, men and women learned about different sororities and fraternities by attending numerous activities planned by the organizations. They were designed to help rushees feel comfortable with the organization and get to know more members. Events ranged from movies and chili suppers to river football and various other activities. Tau Kappa Epsilon brought Bluff ' s Run to the ' Ville at their " TKE Night at the Track. " Thom Rossmanith, the event coordinator, got video tapes of the dog races. He changed the animals ' names and gave out racing pro- grams listing each race to be shown. Each rushee received $500 in play money to bet with. At the end of the night the money could be used to purchase prizes such as gift certifi- cates for free haircuts or bowling and Greek hats donated by area merchants. According to Rossmanith, 74 rushees attended the event. Most of the pro- grams were given to actives so rushees had to ask them in order to get the information for the races. This helped actives and rushees interact and get to know each other better. Another fraternity, Alpha Kappa Lambda, dared to go a little more on the wild side. They hired exotic dancers to perform at one of their functions, which proved to be a big hit with many. " What guy didn ' t like seeing nude women dance around and take money from you? " Cory Clevenger, AKL pledge, said. " It was funny to see this one guy about have a heart- attack while giving this woman a dollar bill. " During Rush, pledges not only had to at- tend events, but also had to go to study hours, weekly meetings and maintain a 2.25 grade point average. " Study hours were more intense than ever, " Sammy Shade, Delta Chi, said. " We placed our pledges in Colden Hall instead of the library where thay could socialize. " Organizations offered pledges they want- ed to become members an invitation to join their group on Bid Day. After receiving their -continued MEMBERS OF Alpha Sigma Alpha pose for an informal picture by the Bell Tbwer. The sorority ' s 69 active members welcomed 38 pledges after Rush.

' I w as really excited about getting a 1 because all these girls were so se, " Kelli Gragg, Phi Mu pledge, said. t was a neat experience to walk into s chapter room when everyone was ipping and so excited to see everyone ;e. " ctive members also considered the perience exciting because they were t sure who had decided to join their )up. ' It was a suprise for both of us when sy picked up their bids and walked rough our chapter doors because we 1 not know who accepted our bids, " ici Wood, Alpha Sigma Alpha, said, ot all the sororities greeted their pledges in their chapter room. Delta Zeta set up a banner outside of Roberta Hall and had their pledges meet there. They decided to welcome their new members outside because it was extremely hot in their chapter room. After accepting a bid, new members went through a pledgeship process that could last up to eleven weeks. However, Phi Sigma Kappa totally eliminated the pledgeship process. Their national affiliate decided it would be a good idea and would erase any doubt whether or not new members were be- ing hazed. The organization extended their Rush two weeks, but because of the policy, could induct new members at any time. When 75 percent of the fraternity knew the prospective member, a bid could be offered to them. After that, there was a five-day activation period before the man became a full-fledged active. " Some of the older guys were worried about the new members respecting them and so were some of the younger ones, " Bill White, initiation director, said. " We easily overcame that and liked the new method. " No matter what types of activities were used to attract new members to the organizations, most served as great ice-breakers. Because of the opportuni- ties to meet people and learn more about each fraternity or sorority, those desir- ing to go Greek were not left at the end of the process wondering what all the Rush was for.

Greek Life 19 20 Suitcasing Suitcase Syndrome students vacate the ' Ville to spend time with family and friends, work a hometown job or search for more exciting weekend entertainment By Scott Albright c uitcasing. It ' s been a Northwest I stereotype for years, and for good . reason. When the weekend came, a vast majority of students left Mary ville, packing only the necessities for their two-day vacation. On any given Friday afternoon one could stand outside any residence hall and witness the droves of students leaving for home. Many raced to their cars carrying heaping baskets of laundry, while others chose to travel lightly. But no matter what they lugged along, they wasted no time in getting out of the ' Ville. " My window overlooked the Hudson parking lot, " Jennifer Smith said. " By 5 p.m. on Friday it was always nearly empty. " There were many reasons given for the so-called " suitcase syndrome " at Northwest. Some students said they had boyfriends or girlfriends at home. Others said they lived close enough to home that it was convenient. Some even gave the desire for a good home-cooked meal as an excuse for leav- ing. However, many students felt there was more to it than that. " There weren ' t enough weekend activities on or off campus for the students, " Echo Lowther said. " There were a lot of parties, but for those who didn ' t like that kind of thing it got boring. " Residence Hall Association, Campus Activities Programmers and other campus organizations realized the problem and tried to schedule activi- ties to accommodate the students. " The problem was evident, so we wanted to give those students staying on campus something to do, " Barb Janssen, RHA adviser, said. " Ulti- mately we hoped the scheduled activities would keep more students here. " Most students said they recognized the efforts made by these organizations, but felt there need- ed to be more done. " The activities scheduled were fine, but there needed to be more variety and also more than one event each weekend, " Smith said. " If a movie was shown on Friday night that was great, but then there wasn ' t any- thing going the rest of the time. Most stu- dents wouldn ' t stay for just a movie so the response wasn ' t good. " Smith added that the majority of those stu- dents who stayed in Maryville on weekends stayed either because of parties or because they simply lived too far away to go home. Jeff Hoover cited another reason for the suitcasing phenomenon. " I had a lot of friends who went home on weekends to work, " he said. " I thought a lot of students chose Northwest because it was close to home and they were able to keep the jobs they had before coming to college. " Yet for some students their frequent trips home may have had underlying emotional ties. Homesickness was a problem that caused some students to go home often, ac- cording to Angela Knight of the University Counseling Center. " Homesickness caused a problem at times, not only for freshmen, but even upperclass- men, " she said. " College-age students were at a big growing stage in their lives. They realized they were growing up and were scared. This caused some to go home more often. " For whatever reason, students continued to race home on weekends, carrying on what has become one of Northwest ' s biggest stero- types. Those students who regularly stayed in Maryville may have faced solitude, but they never had to worry about a place to park. A WITH ANOTHER WEEK of classes complete, Susie Beach and Gary Pilgrim put the top down and leave Maryville to spend the weekend at home.

For lead singer Bob Walkenhorst, a 1979 Northwest graduate, the break-up of the band was not only an end, but a beginning. " For me it ' s the end of a great mu- sical unit, " Walkenhorst said. " But, I ' m happy about the decision. When you ' ve gone as long as you can go, you gotta move on. " When asked of his future plans, he replied, " I ' m not done yet. " Unlike the break-up of many bands, members of the Rainmakers agreed it was time to quit. There were no " strained feelings, " Walk- enhorst said. " Everybody in the band had al- ways been on good terms, personal- ly and creatively, " he added. " We never had conflicts of ego or style. " The Rainmakers formed following Walkenhorst ' s involvement in two other bands. The Walkenhorst Bro- thers, a duo with his brother Mark, was successful, but he said he be- came discontented with the commer- cialism of their career. While at Northwest, Walkenhorst got together with fellow student Rich Ruth and began making music. Steve Phillips later joined him and Ruth and formed Steve, Bob and Rich. A self- titled independent album was released by this band in the early ' 80s. Shortly thereafter, Pat Tomek joined the band and they became the Rainmakers. According to Walkenhorst, the pursuit of his degree and his whole NORTHWEST GRADUATE BOB Walk enhorst performs a number during the Rainmakers ' final concert. While attend- ing Northwest, his band played concerts in the Den. Photo by Don Carrick experience at Northwest was very influential to his career in music. " 1 liked what 1 was learning, " he said. " At Northwest I was immersed in the joy of creating. I painted, I drew and I played guitar. If I could have stayed in school forever, 1 would have. 1 loved where I was at and what 1 was doing. " The Rainmakers released three al- bums in their seven years together. Their critically-acclaimed, self -titled debut album was followed by " Tor- nado " and their final release " The Good News and the Bad News. " Newsweek called Walkenhorst " an audacious songwriter, provocative and witty. " Some critics said he was " an angry soul " due to some of the controversial themes found in his lyrics. " I ' m not an angry man, I ' ve never been, " he explained. " I ' ve always been at peace in my life. Some of my music just looks at things that make people angry. " Walkenhorst added that music needed to have a message. " Every song should have a valid point, " he said. " Every human is capable of a wide variety of emo- tions. In my music I tried to portray those emotions honestly and with meaning. " Walkenhorst said music is the " modem art form " and was very im- portant to his life. " I remember loving to sing in front of people from as far back as when I was three, " he said. " Music has al- ways been a large part of my life. That is the way I make friends with the world; I sing to them. " The break-up of the Rainmakers is just the close of one chapter in his life, Walkenhorst said. He planned to continue writing and doing some recording at home. When asked about a rumored solo career, he said nothing was definite. ' ' I was trying to relax and avoid the business side of music, " he said. " What I really wanted to do was con- centrate on the magic of the pure creative process. " By Scott Albright WITH THE ENTHUSIASM of the local crowd behind them, the Rainmakers rocked the 16th annual Day in the Park at Smithville Lake, sponsored by Kansas City radio station, KY-102. Coincidental- ly, one of the first " big gigs " the band had was at the same event in 1983.

Begin- ning Oct. 17, Northwest was no longer a typical univer- sity. Instead it was transformed into a magical land where storybook characters freely roamed campus. Homecoming ' 90 was here and the theme " One for the Books " was apparent throughout Northwest. Homecoming ' 90 got under way with an exciting start Wednesday when the Variety Show began its three-night run. In years past, the Variety Show consisted of only two nights. ' " There was so much interest in the show that we decided to have another night, " Dave Gieseke, Homecoming committee chair, said. Masters of ceremonies Jean Jones and Shawn Wake entertained the audience while introducing skits such as Phi Mu Alpha ' s " Bob- by Bearcat and the Search for the Holy Goal " and olio acts such as Ken Lucas ' " Hawaiian Song. " Jones and Wake kept the audience laughing by ridiculing Campus Safety, ARA and other student gripes. " The masters of ceremonies were really great, " Stephanie Shaffer said. " They kept the audience ' s attention between the acts. " Along with the traditional Homecoming queen. Northwest students were given the opportunity to select a king. This was truly " One for the Books ' ' since it was the first time Northwest had male royalty. Five king finalists competed for the prestigious title: Riaz Amin, sponsored by International Students Orgaruzation; Rocco Bene, Delta Chi; Garrick Baxter, ROTC; Tom Vansaghi, Phi Mu; and Steve An- derson, Sigma Tau Gamma. Anderson was chosen as the 1990 Homecoming king. -continued SO THEY WON ' T get drenched, two young parade watchers huddle under their rain gear.

Walkout Day, started in 1915 and reinstat- ed in 1977, was a welcome relief on Friday for those who needed to finish their floats, house decs and clown costumes for the pa- rade. Others used the day to sleep late, catch up on some homework or even get some ear- ly partying in. For the first time, the house dec competi- tion was not divided between fraternities and independents. All entries competed in one open division.

Photo by Vicki Meier Homecoming 27 A Novel Idea -continued parade clowns were divided into two divisions, papier-mache and cost- ume. Even though there were changes in Homecoming activities, the spirit of students was not affected. Homecoming ' 90 became a reality on Saturday when campus organiza- tions were given the opportunity to show fellow students, faculty and the community the projects they had been working on for the past sever- al months. However, Mother Nature must not have been in the Homecoming mood. Instead of blessing Northwest with a beautiful day for a parade and foot- ball game, she decided to grace the University with threatening skies, lightning and a downpour of ice-cold rain. But the foul weather did not dampen the enthusiasm of the pa- rade spectators. People young and old continued to line the streets, with umbrellas i n hand, even though the weather continued to deteriorate. " The rain added to the parade, " Jennifer Roose said. " It made it so much more dramatic. " However, other students like Ca- thy Weidlein thought differently about the rainy situation. " The rain sucked, " Weidlein said. " We had to stand under the gas canopy at ASAP. The employees told us not to stand there but we did anyway. " The parade commenced with the Bearcat Marching Band under the direction of Al Sergei. This year ' s pa- rade consisted of 30 high school bands, 15 floats and numerous clowns and jalopies. Campus Safety officers and law- enforcement agents were stationed along the parade route to control the crowd in case of excessive rowdi- ness. But, this was not a problem un- like the previous year when students yelled obscenities and threw beer cans at parade participants. " We had prepared for crowd con- trol this year, ' ' Homecoming student co-chair Eileen Davis said. " First, the county gave Campus Safety jurisdic- tion over the parade route and then students were encouraged not to drink. " The day continued to be cursed with foul weather. During the game against the Washburn Ichabods, a sudden hailstorm in the second half forced football players and fans to leave Rickenbrode Stadium in search of shelter. Following a temporary de- lay, the game resumed. However, the rain-soaked field caused the Bearcats to be plagued with penal- ties. As a result, the Ichabods hand- ed the ' Cats their first shutout in 29 games with a 14-0 defeat. Although Mother Nature attempt- ed to spoil Homecoming at North- west, the students, faculty and alum- ni would not let her have her way. Alumni continued to visit and talk about days gone by while students began to make plans for the night. As the sun began to set on the storybook land of Northwest, it was apparent that Homecoming 1990 was definitely " One for the Books.

It was the place where freedom could easily be taken for grant- ed and opportunity awaited those who searched for it. One such opportunity arose this year involving 29 Japanese students in a program where they learned the culture and language of America. The Japanese students arrived at Northwest in June to participate in the Preparatory English Program. The students were required to have graduated in the top half of their high school class, and have passed an entrance exam in order to attend one of six different universities. " The program ' s basic functions were to teach the students English skills that would enable them to function successfully in the Univer- sity and to help them score a 500 on the TOEFL exam, " Joseph Ruff, director of the Preparatory English Program, said. Students were able to take the TOEFL, an exam testing vocabulary and word usage, in November Upon passing the test, students were al- lowed to attend regular classes. Although the students took a vari- ety of classes that pertained only to English at the beginning of the semester, they eiyoyed them and ATSUSHI HUSOI AND Junko Akamine attend the football game against Pitts- burg State. Photo by JoAnn Bortner were very interested in learning the American language. English teacher Esther Winter said that the students were required to speak English in the classrooms from the beginning. Later on English had to be spoken whenever they were in the building. Most of the Japanese students had an American roommate who volun- teered to help them get acquainted with life in the United States. " We had a great time together, " Marcia Hodde, an American room- mate, said. " Although learning En- glish was slow, we communicated really well. " Living with someone from another country who knew little English was both interesting and frustrating. " I was pretty patient with my roommate, " Tim Tichy said. " I helped him pronounce words and ex- plained things to him in different ways. I even learned some Japanese. " The new students felt America had its advantages and disadvantages. " 1 liked the freedom here, " Atsushi Moriyama said. " People could do whatever they wanted to, but they had to be responsible. " In general, they thought people were very friendly and food, clothes and school were less expensive. Another difference was the weather. " One day it was hot and the next day it was suddenly cold, " Mari Tkkizawa said. " It drove me crazy how the weather always changed. " The program taught not only En- glish to the Japanese, but gave new outlooks to American students too. " I might go to Japan next year, ' ' Ti- chy said. " That is something I might not have gotten the chance to do if I had not met my roommate. " Although this was the Preparatory English program ' s first year, ideas about expansion were discussed. The program could include students from Japan and other countries. The program was not only benefi- cial to the Japanese, but to North- west students as well because it gave many the chance to experience a cul- ture very different from their own. Preparatory English Program 31 Students Find Their Homes CONDEMNED City ordinance cracks down on decrepit housing, forcing landlords to improve conditions I iving off campus may have " seemed like a dream, but for some it became a nightmare. Twenty houses, mainly places rent- ed to students, were tagged for con- demnation. This did not mean the houses were officially condemned, but merely stated the building was deficient or dangerous. According to Paul Tkylor, city serv- ice director, houses were not con- demned until the Board of Codes Ap- peals went through formal action. " A vast majority of the landlords were repairing their tagged homes, ' ' Tkylor said. " Very few had actually gone under demolition. " When the city tagged Dawn Hascall and Stephanie Schneider ' s house, conflicts entered their lives. " When the house got tagged, we talked to our landlord and got into an argument, " Hascall said. Schneider was also upset with the s ituation. " I felt like crying and was really upset, " Schneider said. " I thought we ' d have to move out. " In addition to the angry feelings, they faced possible eviction. " It would have been hard to find a decent place in the middle of tht year, " Hascall said. " I didn ' t want to move back on campus, but if it had come to that, I would have had to. " By Jim Tierney , r!!!fnnr 1 562 -28« OR 415 NOgTH MARKET HOUSES DECLARED UNSAFE were tagged with a legal document. The tags remained until the houses were repaired or destroyed. Photo by Todd Weddle Kurt Lux and his roommates had their house tagged the week before final exams. The tenants were given extra time to move because of finals week, and had little difficulty find- ing a new place to reside. Despite their fairly smooth transi- tion. Lux said it was still disturbing to watch their house get torn down. " It was really weird seeing my l cdroom and kitchen being leveled, " ;ix said. " It also took me a while to • used to seeing a blank spot where n house used to be. " Quality of Life, a city residential life committee, was influential in im- proving housing. Initially, the Rental Association, formed mainly to pro- tect the interest of landlords, was op- posed to the group. However, they soon compromised and a contract was developed by Rental Association President Lewis Dyche and Quality of Life Chairperson Dr Patt VanDyke. ' ' The universal rental contract was a model contract, " VanDyke said. " It clearly spelled out who was respon- sible for taking care of trash, lawn, noise and littering. " Dyche said the contract was geared towards students. " We put a lot of things in there that the normal contracts would not have, such as no sunbathing on roofs and no inside furniture on the outside of the dwelling, " Dyche said. VanDyke said she realized there were not many choices available to students, but wanted something bet- ter for them. " There was a housing crunch, " VanDyke said. " Some homes had de- teriorated to the point of being un- healthy and unsafe. " Although improving living condi- tions was a goal of Quality of Life, the primary function was to increase stu- dent awareness of the problems liv- ing off campus could cause. k 32 Student Housing n UPSET OVER THEIR deteriorating house, Stephanie Schneider and Melanie Griswold peer into a hole leading to their basement.

Students in the theater department had to learn tech- niques to manage their time wisely. " I took mostly theater classes and they fit in with the amount of time I needed to spend in the theater, " Shawn Wake said. " But it was easy to put off studying to work on an upcoming show, espe- cially if it was a subject you weren ' t very interested in. " Not only did students have to learn to manage their time and be responsible for their individual jobs, but they had to learn to work and play well with others. " Theater was a cooperative art, " Lisa Smeltzer, an administra- tive graduate assistant in the theater department, said. " You had to learn to work with people. You depended on them and they de- pended on you. " It was vital to the performance that each person did their job on time and that they put their best effort into it. " I learned discipline, responsibility and time management at the start of my involvement in the theater, " Kim Carrick said. " If you didn ' t do your job, you knew that you ' d been depended on and you felt awful. " Carrick added that the responsibility of doing their individual tasks called for them to be reliable and independent. " You had to think for yourself and make decisions, " she said. " There wasn ' t always time for questions. You had to be prepared to take care of things yourself. " Sometimes, when there was too much for students to do outside the theater, they had to learn to pace themselves, to try and make time for everything. If there was still too much work, they had to choose what to sacrifice. " Sometimes you just had to say, ' No, I can ' t, ' when your grades started to suffer be- cause of the extra time your were spending in the theater, " Smeltzer said. As the performances crept closer and stress levels were maximized, members of the theater department worked together. They depended on each other to work hard so everything would be ready on time. " No one job was more important than another, ' ' Smeltzer said. " Everything was vi- tal to the performance and had to be done on time. A week or so before the show opened everything had to be finished so we could start having dress rehearsals. If some- thing wasn ' t ready, it could throw everyone off and it would mean having to stay late -continued A TUNIC AND tights are the required dress of Alfonzo Atkins and his fellow cast mem- bers in Shakespeare ' s " Twelfth Night.

" Even if the tasks were completed on time, sometimes they had to be redone. In live theater, anything could go wrong: costumes could rip, props could be broken or lost, ac- tors could get sick or hurt or they could for- get lines. The cast always had to be ready to expect the unexpected. " We always had someone who worked with the costumes backstage during a show, ' ' Carrick said. " That way if a costume got ripped, we could have it fixed really quick- ly, hopefully before the actor had to be back on stage. " The amount of time it took to put together each area of the the set depended on the complexity of the show. Some had very sim- ple sets that only took a few weeks to build. However, most, such as " Conference of the Birds, " which opened in November, had sets that had to be started as soon as the show was chosen. Planning had to be done almost a year in advance so there would be time to get organized, order supplies and build the set before the actors got into their most seri- ous rehearsing. In other plays, like " Imaginary Invalid, " the costumes were the most time-consuming aspect of preparation. " The costumes for ' Imaginary Invalid ' took a lot of time because they were covered with ruffles and had to have a lot of alterations, ' ' Smeltzer said. " Overall, it took over 100 hours of work by each person in the costume department. ' ' There were even times when something went wrong on stage and actors were left with the responsibility of acting so well that the audience wouldn ' t notice the mistake. ' ' If someone forgot a cue or anything went wrong, we had to do impromptu and hope that we covered well enough that it wouldn ' t be too noticeable, " Tony Matteo said. In order to help make sure things got done on time, regular duty schedules were set up. They could usually be followed, but some- times materials would be slow arriving and that could lead to extra hours of work. There was no way to tell how much work each show would take and everyone had a turn to work in each area. " By the time we graduated we were sup- posed to have worked in every area of the theater, ' ' Matteo said. ' ' It gave us a lot of ex- perience and a better understanding of how the theater worked. " As hours built up and students started to put in late nights, experience was what reaUy counted. Although theater may have given students a great opportunity to learn as they worked, when time got really tight, there wasn ' t time to teach. Then, everyone just worked as hard as they could in the area they knew best. When everything finally came together and the play was ready for opeiiing night, most of the theater department agreed that the hours of hard work had paid off. " The greatest reward was seeing the finished project, " Carrick said. " After the show, when we took everything down and were left with the empty stage we ' d started with, my thought was always, ' Wow, we did that! ' " When the curtain fell and the audience filed out of the theater, little thought was given to the endless efforts of the crew and all the contributers to a show. For many, their love of theater and desire to entertain inspired them to continue their hard work.

Playing It Safe Campus sheds light on safety, creating new poUces and programs to protect students By Claudia Lokamas Steve Rhodes o lo wly I peered out the glass doors 1 w that enclosed a rather eerie Wells mm Hall — and me. The campus was dark and as I opened the door, a chilling gust of wind blew over me. I should have driven to campus, but I had forgotten how darkness creeps up earlier on a person in the winter. Finally, I decided to just make a run for my off-campus apartment regardless of all the warnings I had heard about walking alone. How safe is Northwest? Reports of on- campus assault, vandalism and theft caused members of the student body to ask them- selves this question every year. In 1989 there were 104 reports of larceny and 89 reports of vandalism. In addition, several assaults were reported to have taken place. In an effort to alleviate some of these con- cerns, several measures were taken to im- prove safety on campus. Creating more lighting along frequently- traveled portions of campus was one of the main steps taken. According to Director of Environmental Services Garth Parker, new lights were placed in regions that they had received complaints about being dangerous- ly dark. Some of the areas receiving new lighting were the Bell Tower, the south side of the Thompson-Ringold Building, the north side of Owens Library and the parking lot south of the baseball field. One option for students not wanting to walk alone was to contact Campus Safety for an escort. This proved to be a particularly good option for students returning from home late Sunday night who had to park a long distance from their residence hall. Students finding themselves in this situa- tion could stop by the Campus Safety office and have them meet at a parking space where they could then be escorted home. If students chose not to use the escort serv- ice, they often walked with friends. " I wouldn ' t walk to the Union alone, " Ka- thy Hermreck said. " I found some poor soul to go with me. " In addition to the escort service, Campus Safety was involved in other ways of mak- ing the campus safer. They made their rounds every night by double-checking build- ings and making sure those inside were safe. Furthermore, Campus Safety performed a lighting inspection for Environmental Serv- ices every other week to find problems with the lighting and have it corrected. Another important issue on campus was the security of residence halls. Hawkins cit- ed propping dormitory doors open with pop cans or other materials as one of the biggest security concerns in the residence halls. She added that it allowed anyone access to the building after hours. " If you let a strange person in, you were putting everyone in the dorm at risk, " Hawkins said. Starting with North South Complex, a new key and lock policy was being implemented thoughout campus. The policy, which in- volved replacing the old keys and locks, fo- cused on eliminating the problem of exit keys falling into the wrong hands. Finally, to help students help themselves. Campus Safety officers gave presentations on date rape and crime prevention. Although it wouldn ' t happen overnight, students and administrators alike hoped the new provisions would help make the campus a place one could traverse, no matter what time of day or night, without having to wor- ry about whether the trip home would be a safe one.

These students devoted their time and talents to teach area children. Various activities were organized through Horace Mann Elementary School, such as an after school child- care program and evening gymnastics classes. Brian Hayes first worked for the one-year-old after-school program, then was promoted to coordinator As a student of childhood education, he found that working with children wasn ' t as easy as it looked. " Kids could manipulate you in ways you didn ' t even realize, " Hayes said. Though not always easy, he eryoyed the work and felt that the experience would help him in his career as a teacher. With no intentions for a teaching career, Jennifer Lewis learned gym- nastics and dance when she was young and always loved working with children. So when she learned of a gymnastics program at Horace Mann, she tried out to be an instructor and got the job. AMY BOYCE ACCOMPANIES Rachael Brown, a Maryville senior, in her vocal music lesson. Photo by Stacy Bauter " It was rewarding when they learned to do something they could not do before, " Lewis said. " They taught me as much as I taught them. ' ' Majoring in both education and French, Alicia Valentine accepted a special request to teach French to a young girl. The job was harder than she expected, but she stuck with it and soon took on another student. " It was so exciting when they came up with an answer that I didn ' t ex- pect them to remember, " Valentine said. Elisabeth Crawford gave children of all ages baton lessons. Crawford, the Bearcat Marching Band ' s award- wiiming twirler, had a preschool class for students aged three to five, and on the weekend a Baton I, II and III session. Girls were divided into these classes by individual skill. Crawford also sponsored a Twirlerette Baton Team for girls of all ages. " I found it rewarding to see the girls smile, " Crawford said. " I thought the lessons gave them a posi- tive attitude when they were in front of people and taught them self- discipline. ' ' Amy Boyce, a music teacher, felt that what ever you gave children they gave right back. " They gave you a spark, " she said. " They had the enthusiasm that col- lege students had lost. " Though the advantages were numerous, there was one recurring complaint: kids had short attention spans. Tkken as a challenge, this problem was handled through a great deal of preparation to organize crea- tive approaches to keep the children interested. Often hours were spent making posters, inventing games and choosing music and books to make learning fun. Whether the experiences were most rewarding for the children or university students was difficult to determine. They worked and played together, enhancing the present and giving hope to the future.

Tom Wicker Fall Media Day, a day for mass communication majors to meet with journalism, broadcast and advertising professionals on campus, brought distinguished New York Times columnist Tom Wicker to Northwest for a two-day visit. Wicker gave a Thursday night lecture to students, faculty and members of the commuiuty at the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center. Wicker spoke of many problems concerning the United States. The lack of a working budget, the tremendous U.S. deficit, unemploy- ment, high crime rate, overcrowded prisons and the homeless were among his list of problems which needed attention. After his 40-minute lecture, he opened the floor for questions and answers. The audience responded well to the open forum. ' ' He was obviously well-informed being an insider in Washington, ' ' Roger Corley said. " He ' s been in the business for nearly 40 years and is clearly an expert in politics. " On Friday Wicker gave the keynote address to kick off Media Day. The address concentrated on his career in journalism. He talked of his early days as a writer and editor of small weekly and biweekly publications and of his advancement to his present position which he has held for nearly 30 years. Wick- er ' s column was syndicated. Those participating in the Media Day ac- tivities were able to ask questions and inter- act with Wicker after his address. " He gave me a clear message about the field of journalism; he was honest, " Jodi Leseburg said. " I was impressed and in- trigued by some of his experiences.

With help from virtually no one, Clark used only a baseball bat and his voice to pull his institution from turbulent to productive. In doing so, he received much pubhcity and eventually inspired the movie " Lean on Me. " Although Clark was criticized by some for his dis- ciplinary methods, there was no doubt about the differ- ence he made. Rondell Sheridan Comedian Rondell Sheridan shared his talents with the faculty and students during August at the Mary Linn Per- forming Arts Center. Sheridan, who some have called " Northwest ' s fav- orite comedian, " delivered plenty of laughs, and was on " The Tonight Show " with Johrmy Carson two days later. Along with performing on Carson, he was on " Evening at the Improv " and " Caroline ' s Comedy Hour. " Sheridan did over 100 college comedy performances a year, which might have had something to do with why he was voted College Comedian of the Year four times in a row. He was also in national commercials for Bud- weiser. Miller Lite and Levi ' s 501 jeans. Suzi Landolphi In September, Suzi Landolphi brought laughter as well as serious messages to campus. Landolphi heated up Northwest with her show that was built around the dangers of sex. Hence the name of her act, " Hot, Sexy and Safer. " She dealt mainly with AIDS and had a serious frame of mind on the subject. " I didn ' t make fun of AIDS, " she said. " All the jokes were around our inability to feel comfortable about sex. " She began her career in comedy in 1986 after coming off the lecture circuit where she spoke to high school stu- dents on the dangers of AIDS. Before doing that, she was an award-winning film producer director. Meat Loaf and the Neverland Express After an extended wait. Meat Loaf and the Neverland Express treated the crowd at Lamkin Gym to a rousing performance. " I thought it was a really good concert, " Matt Miller said. " It was different from other concerts. The group interacted really well with the first nine or 10 rows of the crowd and made it exciting. " The show included classics like " Paradise by the Dash- board Light " and " Two Out of Three Ain ' t Bad. " After a lengthy layoff. Meat Loaf and the Neverland Express hit the road for the 10th anniversary of the " Bat Out of Hell " tour. Since Meat Loaf ' s last tour, he had starred in " The Rocky Horror Picture Show " and the musical " Hair " on Broadway. After two hours of rock, roll and remember, the performance ended, leaving an enthusiastic audience behind. Mike Saccone Mike Saccone returned to campus, this time not as a student but as an entertainer. Saccone attended Northwest in the late ' 70s and ear- ly ' 80s before moving to Philadelphia in 1984. While there, he worked at The Comedy Works and The Come- dy Factory. After winning the comedy portion of " Star Search " 1989 and collecting his $100,000, his career soared. He moved to New York, where he landed spots on Show- time ' s " Comedy Club Network " and MTV ' s " Half Hour Comedy Hour. " Saccone also appeared at numerous colleges and universities, and opened for acts such as Emo Phillips and The Hooters. Dr Jim Wand Hypnotist Dr. Jim Wand transformed the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center into a sanctuary of illusion once again. Although he was a frequent visitor to Northwest, he never ceased to amaze his audience. After talking brief- ly about hypnosis, he shared some of the things it could be used for. In some cases it had been used to correct bad habits, help study skills and increase stamina. He had even worked with the Chicago Bears to increase their level of play. While at Northwest, he convinced students under hyp- nosis to dance to M.C. Hammer, made some men believe they were giving birth and had several women flexing their muscles like macho body builders. The performance also featured a number of students acting like members of a rock band, and one man was told to imitate Madonna.

By Scott Albright For those who had never seen a Broad- way musical, the performance of Stephen Sondheim ' s 1988 Tony award- winning " Into the Woods " in the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center provided an opportunity to experience the thrill. Sondheim ' s musical was staged by the Pegasus Players, a national touring compa- ny based in Chicago. The one night stand was brought to campus by Northwest Encore Performances. " Into the Woods " followed a familiar group of fairy-tale characters on a journey of childhood dreams and adult responsi- bility. Cinderella, Little Red Riding- hood, Jack (of " Jack and the Beanstalk " ), Rapunzel and the Big Bad Wolf are strewn together in a folk tale which deals with the pressures of growing up, the relationship between children and their parents and the endeavor for wish fulfillment. These deep themes are faced in a light- hearted and simple manner. " The show was about every kind of ' relationship imaginable, " Steve Wallem, who played Rapunzel ' s Prince, said. " These relationships were represented in humorous and serious tones so that every single au- dience member could identify with some- thing presented on stage. " The presentation was more than entertain- ment for students in the department of theater. They also got a taste of their future field as they were able to assist the compa- CONNIE JURANEK AND SHAUNKomer aid the crew of " Into the Woods " by tying up one of sever- al backdrops. Theater students helped paint props, mark the floor, set up electrical equipment and assemble the band for the professional touring company. Photo by Stacy Bauter ny with the many preparations for the show. According to senior theater mjyor Annette Filippi, the production was a lesson of the professional world. ' ' It was educational to see how things were done out in the real New Yorkian kind of world, " she said. " It was some of the same stuff we were used to, but just not on the same scale. " Filippi said that approximately 15 to 20 theater students were on hand to assist the company in unloading their truck and setting up the stage. Sound Engineer Tom Bothof commented on the department ' s enthu- siasm to help. " At other universi- ties we had limit- ed help from stu- dents, " Bothof said. " Here the students helped 100 percent. They saw it as a great learning experience for them and I found it a thrill to see them very interested and inquisitive about the field. " Other Northwest students who attend- ed " Into the Woods " also saw it as a learn- ing experience. ' ......•»»•..••• ..J j never been to a musical, so I went in a bit skepti- cal, " Trevor Cooker said. " 1 really eryoyed it. There were many themes and a lot of action. " Although " Into the Woods " was only on campus for one night, it seemed that the Broadway musical had left its mark on many people either by entertaining them or provid- ing them with a hands-on learning exper- ience. Into the Woods 47 Holy Cow, I ' m in Missouri! I Students far from home adapt to unpredictable weather and culture shock G By Christi Whitten ently the airplane touched down at Kansas City International Airport. As the passengers filed off the flight from Dallas, one man looked nervous and some- what lost. When he spoke, one could tell he definitely was not from the Midwest. This man was Garry Harper and he was just one of many students at Northwest who was not only from out of state, but from out of the region. Students came to Northwest from states as far away as Arizona, California, Maryland and Louisiana. " I had a choice to play football for either Northwest or Tulsa University, " Harper said. " But I chose Northwest because there were a lot of Tfexans here and it was so small that it seemed as if everyone knew everyone. ' ' Some out-of-state students came to North- west to experience a new environment, like Dan Shoemaker and Trevor Schmidt. Best friends from Annadale, Va., a suburb of Washington, D.C., Shoemaker and Schmidt wanted to get away from the monotonous life of suburbia. Although they both decided to attend college over 1,100 miles from home, their parents supported them 100 percent. ' i got to see stars and hear coyotes, ' ' Shoe- maker said. " Those were things that a city boy didn ' t get to experience very often. " However, attending college far from home had some negative aspects. For example. many students did not realize how hard it was to be away from home. " During the first week I started crying if anyone said Mom, Dad, home and family, " Maryland native Laura Briggs said. " No one was allowed to say those words in our room. " Her parents, who were Northwest alumni, persuaded her to attend college here. However, she was very homesick and her mother called every day. " My phone bill was $30 the last billing, " Briggs said. " I could only guess at the price of my parents ' bill. It must have been horrible. " Also, students had a hard time leaving their girlfriend or boyfriend back home. It wasn ' t easy to leave family, but many students agreed that it was even worse to leave their sweetheart behind. " It was hard being 11 hours away from her, " Kevin Forney said. " We talked to each other three or four times a week on the phone and we wrote at least once a week. " In addition, some students had difficulty adjusting to the unpredictable weather. " It got chilly in Tucson but never really cold, " Randy Fisher of Arizona said. " I had to go buy clothes for winter. " Even though students from far-away places had to overcome many obstacles, they tried to make the transition to life at Northwest with confidence and determination.

Creating the desired image wasn ' t always easy and required vast amounts of time and money, but to many, that didn ' t seem to matter In the ' 90s, society put pressure on people to buy certain clothes, as well as change themselves to fit the prescribed look of the time. Advertisements in numerous magazines displayed the hottest fashions and promoted products that promised beauty and youth. People bought outrageous amounts of these products each year to make themselves look better. Many students took how they looked very seriously. They went to extremes to create the perfect image, not only to please them- selves, but to impress others. There was no limit on what students would do to change images both physically and through status symbols: cars, clothes, etc. When it came to making these changes, money was sometimes no object. Some might have thought having a $300 leather bomber ' s jacket was a little ridiculous, but Eric Burtis thought otherwise. He said he wore it because the women loved it. For many women, having shoes to match every outfit was important in maintaining an image. Twenty-three pairs of shoes didn ' t seem like too many to Denise Riley, who jok- ingly said she hoped one day to compete with Imelda Marcos. Jeans had been a status symbol since Brooke Shields donned Calvin Klein ' s. Cavaricci jeans cost over $70 a pair, but Eric McClure bought them anyway because he thought they gave him a cuter butt than Ge- orge Michael. However, clothes didn ' t complete the per- fect image. Many Northwest students spent a lot of time readying themselves for public WHILE SHOPPING FOR trendy clothes at Liv- ingston ' s, Lowell Messer tries on a pair of jeans.

Benson spent 30 minutes each night pick- ing out her wardrobe. In the morning she spent an hour and a half to two hours get- ting ready for her 8 a.m. class. But all this preparation was sometimes not enough and Benson confessed to sometimes changing her clothes up to six times a day just to suit her moods. Clothes weren ' t all that concerned Berison. She was extremely dedicated to her looks and spent a lot of time fixing her make-up and hair. " If I had one hair out of place, I spent five minutes to get it right, " she said. As winter blew in and skin began to pale, Benson basked in salons every other day to keep her tan just the right shade. For a dar- ker complexion, many students paid $3.50 a session at local tanning salons. For students who were cancer-conscious. Bain de Soleil offered a tanning cream that darkened skin without sun. A tube of cream cost around $10 and had to be re-applied to the skin every few days, making it costly in the long run. Still, students could get a quick tan for a week or two without going through the time or trouble of tanning salons. -continued 52 Creating an Image m FOR A MORE muscu- lar physique, Chad Danielson pumps iron at the Northwest Weight Club.

Photo by Vicki Meier Creating an Image 53 Reflections on You -continued Although they definitely were projecting im- ages, some students said they dressed and looked their own special way. One student, Elizabeth Stephan, established a different image for herself. In a black leather jacket and ' 60s-style clothing with rings and trinkets on her arms and legs, Stephan stood out in a crowd. Stephan said she worried about her appearance, but took on the view, " I am what I am. " Stephan admitted her red hair was dyed be- cause she tried to obtain the perfect color. " I didn ' t like my natural color, " Stephen said. " It was nasty, gross and disgusting. " Stephan was not the only student to experi- ment with hair colors. Students sampled rinse- in, shampoo-out trial hair dye for about $3. The dye could be made permanent for only $4, mak- ing hair-color changes too convenient and cheap for some to pass up. Thanks to colored contact lenses, those who didn ' t like their natural eye color could pick any one they preferred. Though they were more ex- pensive than regular lenses, many chose to splurge and get not only better vision, but a new eye color as well. Eye color wasn ' t the only thing students want- ed to change. Many students found skin trouble embarassing, refusing to go out if they had acne. But all was not lost. Cosmetic makers found a var- iety of solutions for acne anxiety, ranging from medicated creams and pads to soaps. Denise Bartz found her solution through Mary Kay. ' ' I noticed that my face felt softer right away, ' ' Bartz said. She found it to be expensive, but said it was worth the price to make her look better Proper eating habits helped students like Lisa Osborne maintain healthy images. Osborne was very conscious about her figure and how she could keep it or improve it. She said she stayed away from fried foods, eating baked meals or salad. Aerobics, jogging and weight lifting at least three times a week helped build Osborne ' s mus- cles and burn fat. For those couch potatoes who groaned at the words diet or exercise, other options were avail- able. The latest easy diet craze was the Ultra Slim F t diet. For around $5, students could purchase a can lasting several weeks. Whether students were concerned about only one part of their overall image or several, many took it very seriously and stopped short of almost nothing to obtain perfection.

With eight bars in town, students could be choosy and «.«. find one that fit their style. Some students were happy to hop from one bar to another, while others swore by one. The Pub was one of the top bars visited by students. The huge bar and plenty of booths and tables made it easy to sit and relax. Three spacious rooms allowed students to move around and socialize. Pool, darts and pinball were a few forms of entertainment it offered. Basic rock to country could be heard from the juke box. The Palms, Power Station and Yesterday ' s were other popular bars with the college crowd. At the Palms students found the basics: pool table, juke box, pin- ball and booths. In warmer months, those going to the Palms took advantage of the fenced-in beer garden at the side of the bar. " It was like every hometown bar, a place to unwind and forget about things for a while, " John Strauss said. The huge dance floors at the Power Station and Yesterday ' s drew many students on " Over and Under " nights. They gave the youn- ger crowd a place to dance and socialize. " Those were the places to dance, " Thom Rossmanith said. " But, Yesterday ' s was the best dance bar in town. It was more spacious and had a real nightclub atmosphere. " Strobe lights, mirrors and the best in Top 40 dance music were some of the features found at the Power Station and Yesterday ' s. Also present were pool tables and games for those not dancing. Another bar that began to gain popularity with college students was the Sports Page, which was relatively new in town. The bar had unique forms of entertainment including foosball, shuffleboard tables and electronic bowling, giving students a change of pace. From the juke box came a mixture of country and rock. " It was considered a ' townie ' bar when it opened, but later many students were com- fortable going there, " Rossmanith said. Of the eight bars in town, three were la- beled " townie " bars by many students. Some said they didn ' t feel comfortable going to BJ ' s, Bearcat Lounge or TO ' s. " The atmosphere and the people made you feel unwanted at times, " Mark Gerling said. " It wasn ' t intentional, but without a college crowd, you felt out of place. " In spite of the fact there were different preferences in atmosphere, the diversity of bars provided students with many choices.

She was waiting for the usual to happen. It often did on Friday and Saturday nights. An influx of students, many of them slightly intoxicated, would flood the parking lots and doorways of Mary- ville ' s late-night eating establishments. Nixon worked as a waitress at Coun- try Kitchen and often found herself dealing with patrons of the local bars. The restaurant was open for 24 hours on weekends to accommodate the hor- des of students who got the munchies when the bars closed for the evening. " I thought a lot of the students came here to sober up a little before they had to drive home, besides the fact that they were hungry, " Nixon said. Another Country Kitchen waitress, Stephanie Johnson, had to fend off some persistent suitors. " Occasionally guys flirted with the waitresses because they were still pumped from the bars and just want- ed to have fun, " Johnson said. " But they were really only teasing. " King ' s Restaurant was open until 3 a.m. on weekends. It also entertained groups of students who had growling stomachs. " It was very noisy here between 1:30 a.m. and 2 a.m., " King ' s wait- VINCE MORGAN, a cook at the newly reopened King ' s restaurant, puts up an order.

" The guys tended to get loud and sometimes ob- noxious, but they were all really friendly. They laughed and flirted a lot. Sometimes they tried to impress me by leaving a big tip. " Breakfast items seemed to be a menu favorite among the students. Orders of eggs, bacon and toast were gobbled up. Biscuits and gravy was particularly popular. Chicken-fried- steak-and-eggs fan Jeff Eversole offered a reason for the popularity of breakfast food. ' ' A lot of people ordered breakfast food because it was greasy and easy to eat, " Eversole said. " It went down well after a night of drinking. ' ' If fast food happened to be on an evening ' s agenda, students could al- ways go to Hardee ' s. The restaurant and drive-thru became familiar sights for people who were in a hurry to chow down. " We always got busy around 1 a.m., when the bars were beginning to close, " Hardee ' s employee Kim Funk said. " The people who came in to eat were loud and rowdy, but they never caused any problems. Crispy Curls, spi- cy french fries, were ordered a lot. " Country Kitchen waiter Matthew Jorn said students were rarely offen- sive. " Most of the students came here to socialize, " Jorn said. " All of them were pretty nice, in a loud sort of way. Some of the people were hilarious, especial- ly the girls. They wouldn ' t normally be doing the things that they did. " Most students seemed to agree with the waiters and waitresses. " Restaurants were a good place for students to hang out, " Mike Loving said. " We were all usually drunk, and we got to eat and laugh at each other. It also gave us a chance to see other people who were out. " Although the bars had shut their doors, the evening wasn ' t over for " those who wanted to keep socializing and were a little too hungry to call it a night. Late-night Restaurants 59 CRAVING A Good Square Meal Nutrition takes a back seat to convenience for students preparing their own meals By Allison Edwards M ost college students believed few things in life were more important than food. While eating may have sounded relative- ly simple, that wasn ' t always the case, espe- cially if one was concerned about the nutri- tional value of what was consumed. It seemed people never realized how easy they had it at home until they flew from the nest and had to gather their own eggs. As a child, meals parents fixed or bought were taken for granted, but as a poor college stu- dent far from the gravy train, those days of delicious well-balanced meal s became regard- ed as some of the finest moments of life. " I missed the big meals that I could eat at home, ' ' Kim Saun- ders said. " Mom al- ways had cookies and things like that for us to snack on. When I had to cook for myself, I didn ' t get a chance to eat homestyle things like that. " For on-campus stu- dents who didn ' t find the walk to the Un- ion too appealing, popcorn quickly be- came a staple nutri- ent. Since hot-air ' poppers were one of the few appliances le- gal in residence hall rooms, popcorn was often the snack of choice. Even though toasters were declared a no- no, thousands of pop-tarts were toasted to perfection in residence hall rooms. Canned foods like ravioli and soup were also big hits. If the food stock situation was a little scary, there was no reason for fear since the walk to the nearest vending machine was seldom far. Here a variety of tasty and fattening junk food could be purchased at the drop of a few coins and the push of a button. " My favorite things to get from the vend- RACINDA JACKSON WAITS on Tony Jones and Jeff Ebersole who, like many students, shopped for cheap and easy-to-fix food. Photo by Don Carrick ing machines were Coke, Nestle Crunch bars and potato chips, " Beth Terrel said. " It was so easy because the machines were right around the corner. " For most off-campus students, the rumbling of tummies was not as easily satisfied. While on campus, some purchased food in the Un- ion, but many turned once again to our friend the vending machine. ' ' The only time I ate on campus was when I bought something from the vending ma- chines, " Daren Schachenmeyer said. " It was much more economical to live off-campus, but it was also more trouble to leave to eat and go back. " Leaving and re- turning to campus might have been the least inconvenient thing a student faced when it was time to feed one ' s face. It wasn ' t easy to find the time or patience required to prepare a good, balanced meal. Therefore, many stu- dents opted for fast, easy-to-fix meals. The selections were unlimited and ranged anywhere from 14- cent packages of Ra- men noodles to $4 gourmet, microwaveable TV dinners. Of course, trips to the grocery store also took up time and effort, and the lines at any fast food joint proved it. And God bless the pizza delivery drivers who guaranteed our pizza there in 30 minutes or less, regardless of who or what was sacrificed in the mad dash to their destinations. True, many college students developed eat- ing habits that would have caused Mom to have a cow had she known. However, most survived, living to make it back home in ord- er to scarf down something that didn ' t come in a box or require nuclear energy to prepare. 60 Eating Habits FEELING THE NEED to supplement her meal plan, Kim Greer stocks the top of her closet with a variety of her favorite snacks.

Her face turned a rosy shade of pink as she relived the events of one week last spring. " The funniest part of Greek Week was when we all got together to play ' Simon Says, ' " she said. " It was a blast, especially when we were commanded to get in our favorite sexual posi- tions. You should have seen all the guys! They really got into that. " Graham was the recipient of Delta Zeta ' s out- standing new member award. Greek Week carried out the theme ' ' On the Eighth Day Zeus Creat- ed Greeks. ' ' All through the week, fraternities and sororities participa- ted in games and activ- ities. The traditional all- Greek sing kicked off the festivities. The or- ganizations met at the Bell Tbwer at 3 p.m. as RoUie Stadlman signed a proclamation officia- lly starting the week ' s festivities. Philanthropy was also an integral part of Greek Week again. The groups held a skate-a- thon and a rock-a-thon. The skate-a-thon was held for the children in HeadStart, an educational program for preschool-aged children from low income fami- lies. The rock-a-thon proceeds went to Camp Quality, a camp for children with cancer that was in remission.

Thunderclouds poured down rain, slowing occasionally to •••••••• a gloomy drizzle. For 479 graduation candidates who were staying dry in the base- ment of Lamkin Gymnasium, most discernable to them were show- ers of anxious and impatient thoughts. The anxiousness sprang from concerns of where they would soon be working and the realization of some drastic changes. Impatience was triggered by a desire to get out of the gym and into their new lives. " The ceremony was a little long and tedious, but it was great to know I was finally done, " Wendy Shadle said. While the words ' ' finally done " were on the lips or in the thoughts of most graduates, there were another couple of predominant words present: " What now? " While there were some graduates with no definite idea of where they would be working or going, others had plans, eliminating much anxiety. ' ' I knew I would get a job sooner or later, ' ' John Vyland, account- ing finance major, said. Vyland was working at Hy-Vee until a job opportunity arose in his field. Although the honor of graduating probably didn ' t lose its impor- tance due to the weather, those going through it felt it didn ' t help. Because of recurring downpours, graduates were forced to line up in the basement prior to the ceremony. " We couldn ' t hear what they were saying through the megaphones, so we kept think- ing we weren ' t lined up right, " Shadle said. " I didn ' t really worry about it because I just wanted to get it over with. " Despite the chaos of lining up, Shadle still felt the ceremony was a good experience and was glad she went through it. Bev Orm agreed with her. " It was a rainy and dreary day, but it didn ' t dampen the spirit of the event for me, " Orm said. " The ceremony was the glory after all the work. " Dr. George Garcia, a 1965 Northwest alum- nus and superintendent of the Kansas City public school system, delivered the address. During his speech, he challenged the gradu- ation candidates to strive for improved race relations. The graduates left Lamkin on that rainy morning with a reminder from Garcia that true education is a never-ending process. HEAD HELD HIGH, Ana Maria Lazcano is hooded by Dr. Frances Shipley.

I dove into the fresh waters of my senior year without apprehension. Little did I know the pool was going to be empty. During the summer I had worked diligently at two newspapers. I had a successful summer, gaining a multi- tude of valuable experience in the field of journalism. I was thrilled to have had the opportunity to work as a " real life " reporter and I knew that it would be a great resume builder. But, for some unknown reason, I never once thought of it as an oppor- tunity to receive college credit. One of my friends asked me a very pro- found question: " Can ' t you get credit for the work you did this summer? " I looked at him with eyes of wonder and replied, " Well, sure, good call, 1 think I can get credit for it. What a great idea. " 1 checked my handy Northwest catalog and found that there was a course titled ' ' Journalism Internship 452 " that was worth one to three hours of college credit. I was ecstat- ic. When 1 got back to the ' Ville all 1 would have to do is obtain a drop add form from my adviser and add the class. What a break! Due to this brilliant discovery, I started my fifth year at Northwest with increased optimism and a high- ly positive attitude. The year before me wasn ' t going to be easy. The bot- tom line was that 1 needed to be motivated if I was going to success- fully complete the 38 hours needed to obtain my degree. So, I came to Maryville in August totally psyched. I was ready to face adversity with a vengence. Nineteen hours each semester wouldn ' t be that bad. 1 mean, it was only about 7 more hours than I was used to taking. 1 saw the light at the end of the tunnel and I ran for it like a small child running for an ice cream truck. And, then, it happened. It was on Wednesday morning when it all began. It was about 10:45 a.m. and I was sitting attentively in class with my motivation in check. Five minutes later, as the class was ending, my instructor, who was also the head of the Mass Communication department, looked at me and said, " Scott, I need to see you. " At that moment millions of thoughts raced through my mind, but I tried not to panic. I tried to reassure myself. He wants to tell me that he is impressed with my motivation, I thought. That ' s all, he sees my over- powering desire to succeed and he wants to comment on it. So, 1 put my game face on and am- bled across the hall to his office. The man across the desk from me smiled, cleared his throat and spoke. " Can you say the word ' petition ' ? " he asked. " Petition, " I said meekly. Something told me then I was wrong about why he wanted me in his office, lb be quite honest, I was thoroughly confused. He saw the confusion in my eyes so he tried to clear it up with an in- depth explanation of the whole situ- ation. I was still thoroughly confused. ' ' In a nutshell, you ' re going to have to petition to get credit for your in- ternship. Paperwork needs to be done, guidelines need to be set, evaluations need to be completed and signatures need to be secured, " he said without taking a single breath. " And blood needs to be spilled, " 1 mumbled. During the course of the next few weeks I began my long, hard fight for credit, cutting through enough red tape to choke King Kong. The first step in the process en- tailed filling out numerous forms which were to pass over the desks of every University official and their grandmothers ' , so it seemed. This form had to be sent here and that form had to be sent there, and I had to go here and I had to go there. There was endless running about campus to secure signatures and the whole thing proved to be quite exhausting. Then, each of these forms had to be evaluated to ensure that they met each of the 42,000 guidelines that had been set. This stage of the process gave way to what seemed like an eternity of waiting. Once all the forms were filled out, signed and evaluated and the wait- ing was finally over, a decision could be made. The decision came on a breezy afternoon in October, nearly three months after the onset of the whole process. ' ' After intense review and evalua- tion the board has accepted your pe- tition for internship credit, " the head of the department said. " Congratula- tions. ' ' I breathed a gigantic sigh of relief and wiped the over-abundance of sweat from my brow. " Thank you, " I replied. " That ' s great news. " He smiled, cleared his throat and spoke. " Can you say the word ' gradua- tion ' ? " he asked.

The two met fre- quently to develop a plan that would dispell Cam- pus Safety ' s negative image with the student body. Photo by Tbdd Weddle 68 Campus Safety i Loosening the ' Vice ' A misunderstood service, Campus Safety takes steps to improve image By Steve Rhodes Mockingly referred to as ' Cam- pus Vice ' or " Iby Cops, ' North- west ' s Campus Safety won no popularity contests with the student body. Many lacked respect for Campus Safety officers, seeing them as a mere token force, who did nothing but write parking tickets and continually circle campus in their cars. lb ease this tension, Denise Ottinger, dean of students, and Jill Hawkins, director of Campus Safety, initiated an effort to improve the organization ' s negative image. The first step was to inform students of the role Campus Safety played within the Univer- sity. In doing so, it was hoped some myths about the organization would be dispelled. " Many people saw us merely as security guards, " Hawkins said. " They didn ' t know our officers had as much, if not more, train- ing than the city policemen. " One of the ways they educated students was with short seminars. Sgt. Roberta Boyd, who conducted a num- ber of sessions on date rape, thought the overall student response was good. " When I gave a presentation, I wasn ' t in uniform, " Boyd said. " 1 thought this put me more on their level and made them feel more comfortable about asking me questions. " Another way Campus Safety educated stu- dents was to employ them. " Employing the students helped our image a great deal, " Hawkins said. " They would often tell their friends who complained about our policies that we were just doing our jobs. " Despite boasting some positive results, the efforts of Campus Safety alone weren ' t enough. Both Ottinger and Hawkins empha- sized the importance of student cooperation if progress was to be made. The most prominent issue that lacked thi s much-needed communication was parking. Campus Safety tried to better the situation by supplying everyone purchasing a parking permit with a list of regulations and issuing warning tickets for the first two weeks of classes. Nevertheless, Hawkins said parking continued to be a very sensitive issue. " When students came in and jumped all over us about a ticket, we sometimes got defensive, " Hawkins said. " They didn ' t un- derstand we didn ' t make the parking rules. " Issues such as parking caused Ottinger to empathize with the officers, who were la- beled as rude and unfriendly by students. " They had thankless positions, receiving constant criticism and little if any credit for the positive things they did, " Ottinger said. " 1 understood why that was frustrating. " It was difficult to tell how successful efforts to mend the relationship between Campus Safety and the student body would be. One thing was for certain though: A vital first step had been taken toward the elimination of a dilemma that had plagued Northwest for much too long. SGT.

Pho- to by Brandon Russell 70 First Days of Gulf War Facing the Harsh R-E-A-L-I-T-Y Students ' initial reactions to war vary from shock, disbelief, concern and support By Steve Rhodes ■ he group of friends who had been so jovial moments before were somber now. Smiling faces turned grim and laugh- ter ceased. All attention was focused on the special news report that had suddenly appeared on television. In what was to be a moment that would be remembered for the rest of their lives, the group listened in silence as the anchorman announced that the Coalition had attacked Baghdad. This was the scene across the na- tion as the chilling news of the American-led air raid against Iraq reached the public ' s attention. Pos- sibly the news struck closest to home among college-aged students, whose peers made up the minority of those in the Gulf. During the opening days of war, students watched the conflict with growing concern. Some of those most frightened were the individuals who had friends or relatives stationed in the Gulf. " I was in Towerview cafeteria when the news was announced on the radio, " Amy Coenen said. " The whole place was instantly silent. It gave me kind of an icy feel. I had a lot of friends over there. " Amy Dunekacke was also con- cerned for close friends in the Gulf. " When people were over there that you knew or cared about, you just wanted to deny that anything bad would happen, " she said. " The day we started fighting was kind of like a slap in the face with reality. " NEWS OF THE Allied Forces ' attack on Baghdad takes students stopping for din- ner at the Spanish Den by surprise.

Coenen and her roommate designed the lighted peace symbol after hearing about the Al- lied air strike. Photo by Todd Weddle For many reservists not yet called to the Gulf, the news of war was a strong indication their time could come soon. Garrick Baxter was one such person, but unlike many, he was anxious to enter the conflict. " When I heard about the war my patriotic adrenalin started flowing and I really wanted to be there, " Baxter said. " I had over 30 friends there and, being a member of the military, I felt a need to be there. " Even for students with no military ties, the outbreak of war was dis- turbing. Although President Bush said the conflict would be as brief as possible, there was always the chance the draft would be reinstat- ed if the war continued. Faced with such possibilities, students formed strong opinions about the situation. Marta Clark felt America should have stayed out of the conflict. " I didn ' t think we should have been over there, " she said. " We had so many problems in our own coun- try, yet we were always going to help someone else. Sometimes I wondered if it was going to be like Vietnam; go in and everybody starts dying and the government starts drafting. " A different view was taken by Sonya Benson, whose step-brother, Michael, had been in Saudi Arabia since the crisis began. " I was glad we were there, " she said. " We were lucky to live in a free country and I thought that everyone should have a chance to be free. " Through live television coverage Americans were able to closely fol- low the events shaping the first days of war. A nation sat spellbound as they saw video of Baghdad, lit up like the Fourth of July, during the first air raid. Not long after that, viewers saw footage of Israeli citizens donning gas masks as warn- ing sirens screamed in the background. Also memorable were the chilling descriptions that TV reporters in Baghdad sent back to viewers during the initial air raid. At one point, alarmed the blasts came close to the hotel, CNN ' s Bernard Shaw and John Holliman gave reports while crouched behind a sofa. As students watched these initial developments, feelings of pride, anger, fear and confusion became evident. While conflicting opinions of the war caused a great deal of de- bate, students were united in their support of the troops. More than any- thing, students yearned for peace, for they knew all to well that the price of war would be paid largely by the blood of their generation. Gulf War coverage continued on page 282.

Photo by Scott Jenson Academic Division 73 College of Education A mandatory exam headlined a year Ml of changes for the College of Education. Due to the ex- cellence of educa- tion legislation, all students majoring in education were required to take the National Teacher Exam. A cut-off score would not be instituted until September 1991. Then, if a student did not achieve the neces- sary score, they could not be recommended for certification. " It was impor- tant, and students were wise not -continued time to teacii Graduates return for certification For some, the desire to teach came later in the game after a career choice had been made and a degree had been earned. People like Jim Off ner and Deb Brackman found this desire within themselves after they had completed an undergraduate degree in another field. " I guess the desire to teach was always there for me, " Off ner said. " Af- ter getting my Bachelor of Science in journalism and working in the field for a while, I came to a crossroads. I really wa nted to teach, so I began to look at my alternatives. " Brackman said she had wanted to teach since she was in junior high, but did not pursue it in the beginning for monetary reasons. ' ' The beginning salary for a teacher was about the same as the price of a new car, ' ' she said. ' ' I guess I was swayed by the salary at first and thought there would be more opportunities in business. It wasn ' t until my senior year that I changed my mind. " Off ner and Brackman were two of 15 students enrolled in the Graduate Internship in Secondary " After working in the field for a while, I came to a crossroads. I really wanted to teach, so I began to look at my alternatives. " Jim Offner Teaching program which was developed by Dr. William Hinckley, coor- dinator of secondary education, and was mo- deled after the teacher internship program at Stanford University. Hinckley said the pro- gram was " tailor-made " for those who had ob- tained a degree outside of education and later wanted to teach. ' ' The GIST program was unique in that it allowed its participants to use their knowledge and professional experience to pursue a career in teach- ing, " he said. The program was devised so that participants could take graduate level courses in education and at the same time work on their master ' s degree. After completing the requirements for certification they would be only 17 to 18 hours short of their master ' s. " It only took about two years to complete, " Brackman said. " I planned to be teaching at the high school level in the fall and then finish my master ' s after that. " Hinckley said the GIST program was only a year old and still needed work. ' ' For the most part the program was running smoothly, ' ' he said. ' ' We had a good start and some enthusiastic recruits. We didn ' t want it to move too fast at first because there were still wrinkles that needed to be worked out. " " It needed to be a little better defined, " Offner said. " Other than being a bit I o (generalized, the program seemed to open some great opportunities. " With til (ilST program firmly implemented and still growing, it seemed there were tiew opportunities ahead for people who wanted to apply their specialized knowledge to a career in teaching. by Scott Albrigtit r3 74 GIST Program AS PART OF HER PRACTICUM REQUIREMENTS, Dob Brackman assists Bart Deardorff in a com- puter class at ttie Vo-Tecti schiool.

In reality, psychology experiments provided students an opportunity to earn extra credit for donating between 10 to 60 minutes of their time. Depending on the task, subjects were not put in risky or embarrassing positions. They were iivformed of the experiment and told as much as pos- sible about it beforehand. " I volunteered to do a survey about my childhood and upbringing, " Kim McQuillen said. " I was very comfortable and I thought it was an easy 10 points. " Effects of imagery, such as dart throwing, were also tested. If a per- son could mentally visualize getting a bull ' s eye and went on to do so, it suggested that rehearsing a task before doing it helped. Another type of experiment involved rats. Psychology ma- jors worked with rats to get them to press or jump over bars to receive a treat. " A rat throwing a ball into a hoop was the most imaginative thing done with the animals, " pyscholo- gy instructor Ken Hagen said. Psychology major Lanette Ellis said several steps were involved in training the rat. " My first project was getting a rat to use the bar press in a Skinner box, ' ' Ellis said. " Then my partner and I put three bells in the rat ' s cage and trained him to ring the middle one. When he rang this one, he got food. The funniest thing that happened during an experiment was when the rat jumped out of the cage and ran around the table. " Another experiment determined music ' s effect on students ' test scores. " 1 conducted an experiment testing music ' s relation to test scores, " psy- chology major Steven Trischler said. " There were three different proce- dures; the first was for a group of students to take a test in silence, then they played classical music, then modern hard rock music during the test. The students proved to do better without any music. " Julie Weese participated in a different kind of experiment. " 1 was in an experiment which consisted of watching two videos of ba- bies, " Weese said. " The point was to see what we thought of personali- ties and sex. It was an easy way to get extra credit points. " Psychology students earned extra credit points by participating in many types of experiments. Fortunately, they did not have to volunteer to be Dr. Frankenstein ' s next ultimate experiment to improve their grade. by Jodi O ' Hair " 77jc funniest thing that happened during an experiment was when the rat jumped out of tlie cage and ran around the table.

KEEPING AN FTE ON THEIR PHYSICAL EDUCATION teachers, Lindsey Brace and Matthew Barton wait patiently for their instructions. Physical education was one of the many classes taught by college stu- dents at Horace Mann. Photo by Bruce Campbell 78 Horace Mann Children mong giants Children learn with Northwest students ' mi ' ' These kids just looked around and if they needed help they were going to go to you. " The classroom looked like any ordinary first grade dwelling. Boxes of crayons, miniature-sized chairs, children ' s books and holiday decorations were all about the area. The children were huddled on the floor while a teaching assistant read them a book. After the book was finished I snuck up by some of the children and sat down so I wouldn ' t tower over them. I quietly began to take notes, trying not to disturb them. As if there were a neon sign over my head blinking the words " Please talk to me, " children began bombarding me with ques- tions. " What are you doing? " " Are you writing down everything I ' m say- ing? " " Is that a camera? " " Take a picture of me! " One little girl climbed onto my lap, another held my hand and two more competed for my attention, trying to outdo the other by telling me outra- geous fibs about who they were. " Wait a minute, " I thought. " These kids are six years old. They ' re supposed to be shy around strangers, right? " Obviously I didn ' t know who I was dealing with. These were Hor- ace Mann first graders. And they knew no strangers. Horace Mann chil- dren were used to col- lege students asking them questions and even teaching their lessons. The lab school was a means of hands-on ex- perience for education majors. " I learned a lot from the kids, " Diane Nicholetto said. " They always thought of different ways to do all the activities I had planned. Another good thing was that you got a lot of hugs. " First grade teacher JoAnn Marion thought the children benefitted too. " It gave the children more opportunities for individualized help, " Mari- on said. " These kids just looked around and if they needed help they were going to go to you. " And they did. The children weren ' t afraid to ask anyone for help with whatever they needed and seemed confident with everything they did. While playing by the Union at recess they didn ' t seem phased at all as they were dwarfed by the hordes of college students passing by. It wasn ' t surprising that being around college people didn ' t intimidate them. The children were taught by several education m ors throughout the year and several of them participated in Big Brother and Little Sister pro- grams where a college student adopted them as their sibling. The kids also liked to help others. They sang Christmas carols at a nurs- ing home and sent letters and cookies to servicemen in the Persian Gulf. When I walked out of the classroom that day I was totally amazed. I couldn ' t believe how considerate and socially at ease these young children were. They certainly contributed a unique quality to Northwest and provided many with opportunities they couldn ' t get elsewhere. by Allison Edwards JoAnn Marlon -continued dent Services office, which pmvided informa- tion and advice for education majors.

" We wanted to improve teaching within the college, " Sunkel said. " These seminars and conventions helped to sharpen teaching skills. " -continued Before the first rehearsal, the first costume fitting and sometimes even before the casting of characters, the theatrical set had to be planned. Months before the curtains were drawn, the director and a set design team met to decide on a conceptual approach to a production. In Scene Design class, taught by Dr. David Oehler, theater major students with minors in technical theater design learned how to plan a set. " If you were going to be a designer, it was really helpful to make a minia- ture to see what the real set was going to look like, and be able to make any alterations that the director chose, " George Auffert said. To convey ideas to directors, students built models and created perspec- tive rendering. Modeling was a scaled-down version of what the set would look like. The designer made a white model, a mock-up using pieces of white paper, to represent elements of the set. " Models were usually not finished to the extent of developing a scene, " Oehler said. " We might have gone through several models before deciding what a set should look like. " Studying historical ar- chitecture became a sideline job for scene design students. Re- searching a specific time period was neces- sary if a historical ef- fect was needed. While working on the miniature for " Conference of the Birds, " a fall production, the design team of students and faculty selected historical information that contributed to the concept the director wanted. " Research was based on ritual, like the cavemen telling the story of the hunt, " Mark Vams said. " The set was also related to a Greek amphitheater. " Besides building miniature sets, perspective rendering was used. Render- ing consisted of rough drawings of the set ' s floor plan. Usually, modeling was preferred because it could be used as a tool through- out the production. Perspective rendering did not offer that convenience. " You couldn ' t put a ruler on a rendering to measure something and ex- pect it to be to scale, but the style was up to the designer, " Vams said. Not all designers, students or faculty, chose the same method. " 1 liked rendering better because you could see specific colors on the set, " Laura Fehr said. " The director also knew what the audience could see. " Carpentry work was also explored in the class. Students built platforms, pieced ceilings together, painted flats and constructed staircases. Although the class consisted of more hands-on work oi: t side of class, students gained knowledge of scene designing and development profession- alism by working with faculty. by Jim Tierney " IVc might have gone through sevenil models he- fore we deeided what a set should aetually look like.

Each major and minor was looked at in great detail and evaluated in order to measure the ef- fectiveness of the curriculum. Ac- cording to Sunkel, the College of Fine Arts and Humani- ties had large aca- demic diversity, ranging from liber- al arts to profes- sional programs. " We were a diverse college " he said. " It was im- possible to have a single focus be- cause our pro- grams ran a whole spectrum of areas. " ajor promotion Diversity of field attracts students Choosing a major that would prepare you for a career where you could participate in a wide variety of activities and do various jobs for almost any business wasn ' t easy. However, many found public relations did exactly that. In spring 1986 the public relations major was transferred from the Mass Communication Department back to its original location, the Speech Depart- ment. Enrollment numbers grew from 74 majors in fall 1989 to 105 in fall 1990. The increasing interest was linked to students finding that public relations offered a career that was not as limited as some jobs. " PR had breadth, " Dr. Kathie Leeper, Speech Department chairwoman, said. " It opened different types of opportunities. Companies realized they needed the idea of communicating to its publics. Spread over every type of profession, you were going to find a need for people with PR skills. " A person msyoring in public relations was required to take classes varying from Business Law to Basic Reporting to Organizational Com- munication. ' " There were a varie- ty of courses you had to take, from accounting to graphic arts, " Jen- nifer Miller said. " You made the major into what you wanted. " Majors participated in public relations classes that provided them j j real-world ex- perience. For example, the public relations class promoted the Great Ameri- can Smokeout held on Nov. 15. The students were divided into six different groups dealing with the city of Maryville and the campus. Each group was in charge of a different region in which they contacted and promoted the campaign. The campaign involved activities such as getting Bobby Bearcat to visit the public schools in Maryville, student-supervised information booths on campus and at Wal-Mart, and a proclamation signed by President Dean Hub- bard and Mayor Pro-Tem Bud Vansickle to support the Smokeout on cam- pus as well as in town. A mock funeral service was held at the Bell Tower during which donated cigarettes and smokeless tobacco were buried in a coffin. " I thought the Great American Smokeout was very positive, " Leeper said. " I was pleased with the turn-out. The students gained more because they did it themselves rather than simply learning from a textbook. As a teacher I knew what would throw monkey wrenches into the plan. " An abundance of activities and hands-on experience helped prepare pub- lic relations majors for future occupations and, as enrollment increased, so did the group ' s interest and enthusiasm. by Irish Neitzel " PR had breadth .

Michael Rodgers 84 Survival, Escape and Evasion after of survival A weekend in nature ' s classroom Decked out in Army fatigues, faces masked with camouflage paint, students hid in the dense brush and awaited their adversary. Anxiously, they anticipated the enemy ' s ambush. It was Satur- day night and the autumn chill forced them to bundle up as they hid out in the darkness. What a way to spend a weekend, eh? This weekend was required for students enrolled in Survival, Escape and Evasion. In late October they loaded up in Army trucks and left Maryville for an ROTC field exercise. According to Master Sgt. Michael Rodgers, students played an important role in the practical training of ROTC cadets. " Cadets were assigned to a student group and were responsible for as- sisting them and evaluating their leadership abilities, " Rodgers said. " In turn, the cadets were evaluated by the cadre. " The weekend was the first time members of the class were able to apply what they had learned in the classroom. Rodgers said the class was devised to teach students basic survival skills and expose them to leadership roles. " It was a shared ef- fort, " he said. " Leader- ship opportunities were there for both students and cadets. " Good survival methods were necessary for the primitive weekend stay. Students learned how to start fires, obtain water from stills and trap animals to eat. For food, the " weekend warriors " were to kill and prepare chickens. " I didn ' t help kill it, but I did do most of the cleaning, " Heather Lytle said. " I didn ' t eat much of it because it was kind of rubbery. " Learning how to survive in nature was just the beginning. Escape and eva- sion methods were also put to use as students evaded cadet ambushes. " A real-life scenario was set up where the groups had to escape and evade an enemy, " Ben Sunds said. " They had a certain amount of time to accom- plish their task. The whole process was very exciting. " Again, the students were loaded in trucks and taken to a point where they were freed. Their mission was to make it back to base camp without being captured. It was easier for some than others. " We took the long way around, " Lytle said. " We must have crawled on the ground for a mile because we didn ' t have the cover of the trees. It took about 2 1 2 hours to make it back to camp. " After a weekend replete with activity, the weary group returned to Maryville bright and early Sunday morning only to find out the equipment still had to be cleaned and stowed. Despite the blur of activities, most eryoyed themselves. Alex Briones, who took the class because it sounded interesting, was one such individal. " Besides catching poison oak and being cold, I had a great time, " he said. by Adrienne Oliver and Scott Albrigtit " We must have crawled on the ground for about a mile because we didn ' t have the cover of the trees.

Photo by Brandon Russell 86 Technology n the move Striving to keep up with industry 7 un The advancement of the computer age had a tremendous effect on virtually every aspect of life. The world ' s technology was in a cons- tant state of evolution. So was true for the state of the University ' s Technology Department. According to Dr. Peter Jackson, the department was in the process of a total curriculum overhaul. The changes were in the developmental stages and were to create a broad-based curriculum with a general technology core. " We tried to get the students a broad, in-depth background, " Dr. Bruce Parmelee said. " We had to look out and ahead. " One of the most important aspects for teaching in the Technology Depart- ment was keeping up with the industry. ' ' The program was driven by what was happening in technology and the evolution out there, " Jackson said. " It was very difficult to keep up. " One way the faculty kept up with the industry was trade magazines. " I read and received 12 to 13 magazines a month from the industry, " Charles Anderla, graph- ic arts instructor, said. " I also attended as many workshops as I could afford to attend. " Workshops helped the faculty keep updat- ed with information they could pass on to the students. Jackson felt these workshops were very important because textbooks be- came outdated quickly and sometimes could ... only be used as a reference and base point. During workshops instructors were exposed to new innovations and equip- ment. Unfortunately, there was not enough funding to finance many equip- ment additions, so compensations had to be made. " We realized that we could teach a lot without equipment, using indus- try and media, " Jackson said. " It didn ' t give students hands-on experience. If they could understand how the process worked, without equipment, at least they had the concept. " Anderla stressed that technology education was very expensive and that even though the equipment was outdated, students still gained the knowledge they needed to be competitive in the field. According to Jackson, it would take $125,000 to outfit the department with state-of-the-art equipment. Unfortunately, within a few years, the equipment would be outdated, because the industry advanced so quickly. Despite these shortages, the faculty in the Technology Department were able to successfully use the equipment and facilities they had to educate. With a positive attitude the department compensated by concentrating on the concepts and theories in their industry and training their students to be a force in the technology world. by Stephanie Frey The program was driven by wliat Wcis happening in teelmology and tlie evolu- lion out there. It was verv diffieuli to keep up. " Dr. Peter Jackson -continued evaluation plan. Dean Gerald Bwwn said assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the college was impor- tant to its growth and direction. " The college was going through a building stage, " he said. " Determining what we needed to focus on helped us grow and make the college stronger. " Faculty were able to travel to different parts of the country to study their respec- tive disciplines. Brown said this was made possible through allocated funds and personal funds of the faculty. Technology 87 inor justice Criminal law attracts students The criminal justice minor was first offered in 1978 due to student demand. Since then it was a popular minor among psychology, so- ciology and government majors. Many students found that the pro- gram was very complimentary to their chosen mayors. " I wanted to someday help the children delinquents by becoming a social worker, " Libby McLeran said. " I felt declaring a criminal justice minor gave me a better picture of my psychology major because 1 could do some of the work with children and see how their attitudes and temperaments were. " To complete a criminal justice minor, students had to complete such classes as Introduction to Criminal Justice, Juvenile Justice and Crime and Delin- quency within the government department. They could choose Abnormal or Developmental Psychology to fulfill their psychology requirements. Criminal justice expanded into the student tutorial program at Washington Middle School. Students were referred by the teachers to take advantage of this service. Interested criminal justice minors then donated some of their time and tutored the students in subjects they needed extra help in. According to " felt declaring a criminal justice minor gave me a better picture of my psychology major. . . " Libby McLeran Mike Brewer, the pro- ject was rewarding to both students and their tutors. " I got a personal sat- isfaction out of know- ing I helped the kid I was tutoring, " Brewer said. ' ' After a while you could see a definite change in their attitude and outlook on school. I liked knowing I had something to do with that. ' ' Dr. David McLaughlin played a major role in the criminal justice program and had goals for the department. According to McLaughlin, there were talks about a possible multiple hot- line for rape victims and people contemplating suicide. Although the idea had not been passed, it was tabled for later discussion. Lectures were also presented by speakers from local juvenile offices and the state patrol. For some, the minor offered valuable knowledge for their future careers. Debra Kummer, a psychology m or who was taking the criminal justice pro- gram as a minor, hoped to become a probation or juvenile officer. " I thought the minor was pretty good, " Kummer said. " It was becoming more well-known and I think the department offered a well-rounded selec- tion of classes. " Bill Pick, a history meyor, had his sights set on someday becoming a U.S. marshall on a federal or state level. " I thought the classes would help me because they made me pay atten- tion to detail and that was going to help me in the long run, " Pick said. Whether it was in preparation for a future career or simply a way to pro- vide a more well-rounded m yor, the justice minors seemed to eryoy and reap benefits from the area of study. by Kiki Kunkel 88 Criminal Justice ;;:m ' AS PART OF A PROJECT FOR HER FEDERALISM class, Anita Puche utilizes ttie law books in ttie library.

Accounting students spent many hours doing what they had been taught to do — taxes. Many volunteered their services through the Volun- teer Income Tax Assistance program, while others did their friends and fa- mily favors by doing their taxes. VITA, a government program run by groups in a community as a service project, was headed by accounting students for the Nodaway County area. Students volunteered their services on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, February 5 through April 1 1 , in Golden Hall. Members of the VITA program had to complete a workbook and a test designed by the Internal Revenue Service before they were eligible to offer their help. Judy Phillippe, a non-traditional senior accounting student, coordinated the program. She was given the old files and forms and began setting up the program in Novem- ber. " Being a non-tradi- tional student and a sin- gle mother, I didn ' t have a lot of time to do the things that tradi- tional students did, but I weinted to do an extra- curricular activity be- fore I graduated, " Phil- lippe said. " I had been doing my friends ' and relatives ' taxes for around 10 years, so I contacted Roger Woods to see if 1 could organize the program. " Woods was able to help the students if they had any questions, but for the most part the students were able to do the tax returns themselves. ' ' We had a good response to our program, ' ' Woods said. ' ' We basically did it for two reasons; one, to help people with simple returns and two, to give accounting students experience for when they entered the job market. It benefitted tax-payers and students. " Paul Kuehneman also worked with VITA. ' ' I learned more about different kinds of deductions by working for VITA, ' ' Kuehneman said. " Helping people helped me decide what field of work I wanted to go into. It also helped me to learn more about accounting and gave me good on-the-job training. " Phillippe and Kuehneman also did their friends ' and relatives ' taxes, which gave them even more experience. " Some people hated to do taxes, " Phillippe said. " I didn ' t love to do them, but I didn ' t mind. " Denice Mittlieder did her family ' s taxes, but also worked at an area ranch outside of Maryville, where she was employed by FYank Felton. " I kept the books and also posted all checks on the ledger, " Mittlieder said. For Nodaway County residents or those related to future accountants, the tax deadline wasn ' t as frustrating as it was in the past. But for those who didn ' t seek help, there was always next year to look forward to. by Kelley VanGundy " Some people hated doing taxes. I didn ' t love to do them, but I didn ' t mind.

Many groaned at the mention of the name of the town where they carried on academic labors. For some, though, Maryville was the place that meant new beginnings. Michael Walsh, executive director of enrollment manage- ment, moved to Maryville in November. Walsh and his family had been in Virginia for 10 years and they were ready for a change of pace. " I saw the job advertised and it interested me, " Walsh said. " Maryville seemed like it would be a good place to move to, so I decided to check it out. ' ' Once he saw the campus and got a feel for the people and the atmosphere, Walsh knew he had found his new home. Something that really attracted and impressed Walsh was the lack of any pretense on Northwest ' s campus. " Northwest did what it said it was doing, " Walsh said. " The administra- tion was always in the process of doing what they said. At Northwest, the chief goal was to expand the quality of education and serve the geo- graphical area that our students came from. " Denise Ottinger, dean of students, arrived on campus July 16 and found the transition to the small community of Maryville easy. " Everyone here was so nice and the campus was beautiful, " Ottin- ger said. " The adminis- tration was in tune with my ideas concerning . . . , • the students. " One drawback to Ottinger ' s job was her demanding schedule. " I was dictated by my schedule, so I didn ' t get to devote as much time to students as I would have liked to, " Ottinger said. " I tried to keep myself as accessible to them as I could. I sponsored Student Senate and the sororities. " Dr. Gerald Wilmes arrived on the Northwest campus in November to be- gin his position as Medical Director at the Student Health Center. Accord- ing to Wilmes, he was aware of opportunities Maryville offered. " I received my undergraduate degree in wildlife biology from Northwest, " Wilmes said. " It was a small and flexible town where I knew I would be able to get people involved in healthy lifestyles. " Wilmes was in private practice in Pilot Grove when he became aware of the job available at Northwest. " I was very interested in public health education and I viewed the job as the perfect chance to get college students concerned about their health, " Wilmes said. " College aged students were at a critical stage in their lives in terms of learning an overall wellness program. " Even though Walsh, Ottinger and Wilmes were new kids on campus, their talents and skills made them valuable assets to the University. by Lynn Trapp " It was a small and flexible town where I knew I would he able to get people involved in healthy lifestyles.

Often the president would have to prepare for a business trip, review pertinent Universi- ty documents or entertain guests. However, Hubbard said he did not mind the demands of his job. " I spent most of my time working, " he said. " I got more pleasure out of doing things related to the University than I did the alternatives. " So did the president ever do anything to relax or for leisure? " Reading, " Hubbard said. " 1 guess my second preferred activity was just plain reading. Much of that reading was related to higher education, although I did try to take time to read other books occasionally. " I rarely watched television, " the president said. " Typically what I ' d do instead of watching TV was work on the computer. I found it to be sort of therapeutic. " Related to his pleasure of working on the computer was his eiyoyment for writing. Hubbard was the co-author of " Restoring Quality to Undergraduate Educa- tion: The Challenge to Surviving the 1990s " which was released in the fall. Another book was already being planned. In addition, Hubbard liked to keep physical- ly fit. " Exercise was something that I had done consistently for 25 years, " he said. " 1 spent 30 minutes every morning doing some aerobic activity. " He said his daily exercise routine included either riding his exercise bike or running on his Nordic Track and lifting weights. Hubbard said his favorite hobby was teaching his dog, Churchill, tricks. " I guess the purpose for leisure was to divert and take your mind off things, ' ' Hubbard said. ' ' The best hobby I ' ve ever had was Churchill. In terms of an everyday diversion for me, the dog was it. " Hubbard said Churchill eryoyed learning new tricks. He could beg, roU over, shake hands and jump through a hoop. He said he also eryoyed spending leisure time with his family, going to cultural events with his wife and traveling to see his children. Furthermore, the president said he eryoyed the outdoors. " In the summer, I eryoyed water skiing, " he said. " We had a boat and so we ' d go do that on occasion. That was one activity I never tired of. " " And, I liked to fish, " he added. " Not fishing in Nodaway Lake or some stream, but deep-sea fishing where I could catch something really challenging. ' ' It seemed the president had interests in many areas. Although Hubbard ' s time was limited, his healthy attitude allowed him to manage the Universi- ty and still relax and have fun during his free time. by Scott Albright " 7 got more pleasure out of doing things related to the University than I did the alternatives.

Photo by Brandon Russell 96 President ' s Cabinet nside the cabinet Administrators find time for work, leisure T he seven members of the president ' s cabinet had diverse interests and responsibilities. However, the one thing they had in common was their desire to work at Northwest. r. Robert Bush The timing was perfect for Dr. Robert Bush, the vice presi- ;nt director of the Center for Applied Research, when he was fered a teaching job at Northwest in 1968. He and his wife Betty were Uving in Washington, D.C. with eir three young children when he was offered the job. Bush had grown up on a farm in Dekalb, 111., and graduated om Northwest in 1957 with a degree in agricultural education. 2 moved to Washington to work for NASA at the Gottard Space ight Center in Maryland. Bush worked in the educational pro- ams office, fulfilling his childhood dream of working with the ace program. " When 1 was a little kid my father had a friend who taught the astronomy department at the University of Kansas, " Bush id. " I used to sit around hypnotized by this man. He was a great oryteller and astronomer. " Bush helped teach graduate programs at several colleges while orking for NASA and discovered he got a lot of satisfaction out teaching adults. When he realized he could do the same thing Northwest, he decided to return, bringing his knowledge of ace and his experiences from the job with him. [r. Rollie Stadlman One opportunity led to another for Executive Assistant to the esident, Rollie Stadlman, who graduated from Northwest with degree in education in 1970. Having been extremely active working on the campus radio ition, Stadlman was asked to stay after graduation to help build e FM station, KXCV. He weis the first manager of the station id eventuaUy became the director of broadcasting services. Stadlman was also the associate director of alumni develop- ent and spent a great amount of time working with alumni and recting fundraisers, such as the phone-a-thon. Stadlman er joyed traveling, golf, reading, woodworking and alking. He was also very active in the community as a mem- ir of the Lions Club, the Park Board and the Chamber of Com- erce. He received the Distinguished Service Award in 1988. " I fell in love with Maryville and with Northwest, " Stadlman id. " It was an exciting place to work with intelligent, ener- tic people and every day was a real adventure. " r. Robert Culbertson Weekends were a time for both work and relaxation for Vice esident of Academic Affairs Robert Culbertson. He put in 10- 12 hour-days during the week, but some were even longer. " I tried to attend every cultural event on campus, especially those that involved our faculty and students, " Culbertson said. On Saturday mornings, Culbertson and his dog, Duke, came to campus around 8 a.m. After working until noon with a cou- ple of breaks, he went outside and watched Duke chase squirrels. Culbertson usually left by noon so that he could spend the rest of the day with his family. On Sunday, Culbertson worked for several hours in the afternoon to be prepared for Monday. Other- wise, weekends were a time for him to get out of town when he got the chance. Culbertson said he had a strong commitment to the students. " As the chief academic officer, I had a responsibility to every student to make certain 1 was doing everything possible to max- imize the positive learning environment. " Mr. Robert Henry Si-s:|MivSi|;WS«=Sj T never knew from the moment I walked into the office what I would face. » Robert Henry For Public Relations Officer Robert Henry, the opportunity to in- form others about Northwest and its ad- vantages was what he eiyoyed most about his job. " It was a dam good school, " Henry said. ■:; " :? !::-fl? i i ' ; ' :i -- " v;-v::- v.; " I would have liked people from a wider geographical area to understand what a good school Northwest was. " Heruy came to Northwest in 1969 after a short teaching career. " I taught for a year at Wichita State University, but I didn ' t find it satisfying, " Henry said. " 1 started to look around for a new position, and I have been here ever since. " Henry liked the variety that his job offered. " There was no boredom in this job, " Henry said. " I never knew from the moment I walked into the office what I would face. There were challenges and opportunities that popped up like mushrooms, and I tried to solve the problems. " In his spare time, Henry liked to read and watch sports. He also eryoyed spending quality time with his children and grandson. Creating the best possible image of the University and promot- ing it was a time-consuming job, but Henry managed to channel his energies into other interests.

" I was intrigued by the Culture of Quality document, and the concept of the Electronic Campus had thrown me for a loop. The students were friendly and I was impressed with Dr. Dean Hubbard. " Ottinger was offered the job a week after she interviewed, and arrived in MaryviUe in July. Some of her extensive duties included overseeing housing, bookstore, text- book rental, food services, Greeks, discipline system and international stu- dents. " The student contact was the plus, " Ottinger said. " I felt like a parent to 6,000 kids. " Moving from Ohio to Missouri was easy for Ottinger. " This job was one of the easiest transitions I had ever made, " Ottinger said. " I thought Northwest was one of the best-kept secrets in the Midwest. " Mr. Warren Grose For Vice President of Finance Warren Gose, who worked as many as 60 hours a week, there was often no such thing as a normal day. ' ' Sometimes I felt like a fireman, ' ' Gose said. ' ' I planned to do certain things during the day and then something else would come up. " Gose said an average day would start with reading mail, signing documents and meeting with people. Also, Gose attended two- to four-hour cabinet meetings, administration council meetings and student disciplinary commit- tee meetings. For hobbies, Gose liked to travel and ski because, as he said, " that was where no phones were. " Because he worked so many hours a week Grose often spent time on campus or took his work home on weekends, but tried to reserve some weekends for just himself. " Hopefully at least one weekend out of the month I could sleep late, " he said. " I liked to have at least one day out of one or two months when nobody could bother me. " One of Gose ' s favorite parts of his job was working with students. " I eryoyed the work, " he said. " It was nice to be around young people all the time because I felt I was still young. " Mr. Charles Veatch A progression of opportunities kept Director of Development of Alumru Services Charles Veatch at Northwest. Veatch came to Northwest as a graduate student pursuing a degree in bus- iness. As a student he served as hall director for both South Complex and Dieterich Hall and began working as the Assistant Director of Admissions after graduation. He eventually began working with alumni services and found he eiyoyed contact with alumni. Veatch took his job very seriously and tried to make himself accessible to alumni by helping them with any problems or decision-making they brought to him. He often went to talk to alumni who called and asked his advice on things such as property and investments. Outside of work, Veatch ei joyed spending time with a close group of friends and often got together with them to play cards. He was also very active with his church youth group and went on several mission trips with them to Kansas City and St. Louis. On these trips, the group would assist a church in an urban area with its Vacation Bible School program. Veatch eryoyed watching the kids interact in a different environment. " It was just unbelievable to see how well the kids adapted, " Veatch said. " They hadn ' t formed stereotypes yet and they really got along well with the other kids right from the start. It was great to see the kids really learn and grow out of it.

Be- ing a dean required an exhaustive amount of time and energy, but it was something they eryoyed and had been preparing for during their educational years. Mr. Robert Sunkel Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities Robert Sunkel had been at Northwest for 30 years. " I originally wanted to be a medical illustrator, and then I became a gradu- ate assistant at Texas Christian College, " Sunkel said. " I came to like teach- ing more than illustration. " Sunkel finished his MFA degree in painting and art history and was in the Army for two years. A stint in Korea enforced his notions about teaching. " I was teaching Army personnel fifth through eighth grade arithmetic, " Simkel said. ' ' Many of the people hadn ' t gone past their middle school grades in education. I had to convince them that they shouldn ' t be ashamed of that fact. Ileamed so much about dealing with peo- ple through that ex- perience. I also taught English to Korean bank- ers on an appointment basis. " After Sunkel left Korea, he spent two years in Arkansas at Henderson State Teach- er ' s College, where he taught art. Shortly after that, he came to Northwest. " I was interested in a new area of the country, where the weather was colder, " Sunkel, who grew up in Texas, said. " Northwest was also a larger institution, and that appealed to me. " Sunkel became involved in planning the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts building in the early ' 60s. He served as chairman and division head before being selected as dean in 1983. He continued to teach one class every semester. " I really eryoyed teaching, " Sunkel said. " I liked to plan and see things happen within the classroom. " " would not have been able to forgive myself If I hadn ' t tried to be a dean. ' ' Dr. Ron DeYoung Dr. Joseph Ryan Dr. Joseph Ryan, dean of the College of Education, was interested in edu- cation from a very early age. " I had always liked to read, " Ryan said. " 1 thought that had a lot to do with my elementary teachers. They inspired me to read and learn. " Ryan m yored in English at North Texas State University and taught for one year in Illinois. From there, he went to Chaminade, a college prepara- tory high school in St. Louis. He taught there for two years before he decid- ed that he wanted to go to graduate school. " I earned a master ' s in secondary school administration and a Ph.D. in English education, " Ryan said. " I was also working at a research and de- v elopment center, and that introduced me to some influential teachers. -continued Board of Regents Northwest ' s decision makers, the Board of Regents, experienced a busy year as tbey con- sidered a number of requests submitted by University administrators, faculty and staff The board itself underwent some changes as Frank A. Strong Jr. was appointed by Governor John Ashcroft to become a member of the group. Strong, who practiced law in Maryville, was a 1973 graduate of Northwest. He replaced Theodore Robinson, of Maryville, on the board. Governor Ashcroft also named a student representative, Nicole Rowlette, to serve on the board. Rowlette was a sophomore history major at Northwest. The Maryville native replaced Leon Sequeira, of Lee ' s Summit, who served as the student representative the previous year. Another significant item approved by the board was a contract between the University and the Campbell Soup Company. The con- tract permitted the construction of a model poultry-raising project and related composting facility on the University farm. The poultry facility would house upward of S0,000 chickens and was projected to create a positive cash flow after eight years. This would be accomplished by selling the chick- ens raised in the facility. A second source of income profit would come from the fertilizer that would be produced in the composting fa- cility using the chickens ' waste. After being without a doctor since January of 1990, the board approved the appointment of Gerald Wilmes as the University ' s Medical Director Physician. Wilmes, who planned to serve the Universi- ty on a half-time basis, filled the spot left by -continued 100 Deans . BOARD OF REGENTS. Front ffoiv: Sherry Meoders; and Robert Gill, president.

Ptioto by Todd Weddle Deans 101 What it takes -continued It was probably one of my most important learning times. " The hope to be a teacher and administrator who was instrumental in caus- ing change was Ryan ' s main objective. " I wanted to effect change a great deal, " Ryan said. " I thought I ' d like to change things by using a great variety of teaching materials, not just a textbook, to teach. " When graduate school was over, Ryan taught English at Laredo State University in Texas. He was also at Northern Arizona University for eight years before he accepted the position at Northwest in 1985. " I was interested in the deanship, and I had friends and colleagues in Mis- souri, " Ryan said. Ryan received a Fulbright Scholarship and was on leave of absence dur- ing the 1988-1989 academic year. He was in the Dominican Republic, teach- ing graduate students methods of research and thesis development. Dr. Ron De Young In the College of Business, Government and Computer Science, Dr. Ron De Young viewed his job as an extension of his education. " I didn ' t go to work in the mornings, I went to school, " De Young said. " I eiyoyed my job, which was helping young people find careers they would be happy with. " De Young earned his bachelor ' s degree in business education and manage- ment from Western Michigan State University. After teaching high school for one year he realized he was more interested in instructing older students. " I liked school and studying, " De Young said. " I got a teaching assistant- ship at Western Michigan State University, where I could explore teac hing and studying at the same time. " De Young received his master ' s degree while at Western Michigan State University, and went to Northern Illinois University to work on his doctorate. He returned to Michigan and spent 14 years at his alma mater. While there, he became an assistant dean and was instrumental in establishing accredi- tation of curriculum in the business department. The opening at Northwest in 1984 was an opportunity for De Young to move up, and he wanted the chance to improve himself. " I would not have been able to forgive myself if I hadn ' t tried to be a dean, " DeYoung said. " I was intrigued by the small size of Northwest and its campus. " Dr. Gerald Brown According to the Dean of the College of Agriculture, Science and Tech- nology Dr. Gerald Brown, coming to Northwest in 1983 was a professional opportunity that he couldn ' t pass up. " I had heard good things about the Agriculture Department, " Brown said. " I thought it would be a challenge and a good learning experience for my two children, who were in high school when we moved here. " Brown came to Northwest in 1983 after a career in research and technol- ogy studies. He got his bachelor ' s and master ' s degrees at the Uruversity of Maryland and his Ph.D. at Virginia Poly Institute and State University. " I wanted to be an agronomist, " Brown said. " I also wanted to teach and conduct research. " Brown fulfilled his goals at a variety of institutions. He taught at the University of Georgia and was a research agronomist for the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. He also served as the chairman of the Department of Agriculture at the University of Arkansas and directed a research and ex- tension center for 5V4 years. " I saw quality and support on the Northwest campus, " Brown said. " Things were really moving along for us, especially with the Challenger Center being planned. " The demanding job of being a college dean wasn ' t always easy, as they all admitted. However, they managed to blend their special backgrounds and personalities together to make each of their colleges an educational and special place to be. by Lynn Trapp -continued Dr. Desmion Dizney when she retired. During a special meeting in August, an easement to the city ofMaryville that would allow the construction of an access road and sidewalk on the north side of campus was ap- proved. News that construction was finally going to begin was well received by both stu- dents and administratoTS. " It was frustrating that it took so long to get started, " President Dean Hubbard said af- ter the meeting. " We worked hard to get it started and I thought we were down to the last details. " Construction on the long-awaited access road started during the spring semester and was expected to be done before the end of the summer. Renaming the Department of Home Eco- nomics was another item that was approved by the board. The request was made by Dr. Frances Shipley, department chairwoman, who thought that the name " home economics " was outdated, and carried stereotypical connota- tions that misrepresented the current department. The new name chosen was the Department of Human Environmental Sciences. Shipley pointed out that this change had been taking place at other colleges as well. The name change was supported by stu- dents, faculty and administrators affiliated - with the department. As is the case every year, the board also ap- proved standard items such as the resigna- tions, retirements, appointments or dismis- sals of officers and teachers, changes in stu- dent fees, budget requests and anything else involved in the general management of the University. by Steve Rhodes 102 Deans A BACHELOR ' S AND MASTER ' S DEGREE FROM THE UNI- versity of Maryland are just two of the accomplish- ments made by Dr. Gerald Brown before he became dean of the College of Agriculture, Science and Technology.

" Keeping in touch with graduates After graduation, alumni often wanted to keep in touch with the University, so the Alumni office and the Publications offices de- vised a system to keep alumni ties strong. One way ties were kept strong was through Alumni News, which was published quarterly by the PubUcations office. The newspaper, which highlighted both alumni and faculty, did a lot to keep alumni in touch with the University. " We got a good response on faculty stories and on Class Notes, " Carole Gieseke, editor, said. " Alumni really wanted to read about what their friends and faculty had done. " According to Gieseke, the most popular part was the Class Notes section, which told what people were doing and gave new addresses. Gieseke said it helped keep people up-to-date, and even got some friends back in touch. As both director of Publications and an alumna, Gieseke had a good idea of what alumni wanted to read in the newspaper. Through feedback from readers, staff meetings and brain- storming, Publications got ideas on how to make the newspaper interesting. Homecoming was the most popular event alumni returned for. In order to let everyone know the date and plan ahead to attend. Homecoming was well publi- cized through the annual Homecoming flyer and the newspaper. The phone-a-thon was another way the University kept in touch with alimi- ni, as well as a way to raise funds. It was conducted every February by cam- pus organizations, mainly sororities and residence halls. " It helped us find out more about our alumni and get in contact with alum- ni we hadn ' t had contact with in years, " RoUie Stadhnan, assistant to the president, said. Over 40 percent of alumni contacted through the phone-a-thon pledged their support to Northwest. ' ' We were very proud of that because we were told that it would be some- where between 17 and 25 percent, " Stadlman said. Alumni relations were also kept strong through an annual trip for alumni and Friends of the University. A different destination was chosen each year. " With a group of 30 to 40 people, we ate better, stayed in better places, and saw more for less money, " Stadlman said. " It was also an interesting way to get to know alumni on a different level. " If contact with alumni was lost, it could be re-established through mail- ings, updates sent to Gieseke ' s office and through a private company hired to look up phone numbers. Sometimes, alumni contacted the University. " A funny thing happens about 10 years after graduation; people get swept up in nostalgia and start calling us, " Stadlman said. With the incentive of their success, the Publications department and alum- ni offices continued to strive for good relations and worked to improve them. by Denise Hansen Rollie Stadlman 104 Alumni Ties WORKING THE ALUMNI PHONE-A-THON, PHI MU Jenny Haines talks to alumni trying to get do- nations.

Imagine taking a test during one of those classes and then continuing class with more lecture. Every semester students did just that, giving up one or more even- ings to take a night class. Many found the classes to be overly long and dull. " It was hell, " Mark Guthrel said. " It was just boring. It was only once a week, though, thank god. " Instructor David Baird, who taught Business Law on Monday nights, tried to combat student boredom. " I would give them a break halfway through class, " Baird said. " I also gave my own survey to see how I could make the class more interesting to students. " Baird thought night classes really were a plus for some students. " It allowed students to take a class that wouldn ' t conflict with their sched- ule and helped non- traditional students who worked during the day, " he said. Kevin Malick said he really eryoyed his night class. " It was a little longer and took more out of me, but it was worth it, " he said. " You didn ' t have as heavy a class schedule with a night class. " Because they met only once per week, a potential problem with night class- es was the amount of material one missed if absent. If a student missed one night, then they missed a week of class. A problem some students faced when taking an evening class was walk- ing on campus after dark. Many of them walked with friends or fellow class- mates so they wouldn ' t have to walk alone. Friends were often a reason students took a class. Dana Auriemma was one who took a night class to be with her friends, but she quickly found out it wasn ' t all fun and games. " It got really boring, really quick, " she said. " But it was only one day a week and I had it over with Monday. " While night classes were optional for most students, this wasn ' t the case for those enrolled in graduate level courses. Most of the time their classes took place at night. Although it may have disturbed some, for graduate stu- dent Randy Petersen this wasn ' t an issue of concern. " It was kind of a pain that it took most of your evening away, but I really didn ' t mind, " Petersen said. " It usually worked out pretty well to have class- es at night because it gave me more free time during the day. Students found many reasons for taking night classes. Some of them found a once-a-week class convenient to their lifestyles and schedules. Others found their evening classes to be long, drawn-out affairs. But whatever their opinion, for many people night class was the answer to scheduling problems. by Tom Chaplin " It was hell It was only once a week, though, thank god. " Mark Guthrel Night Class 107 istorical ties Faculty reside in landmarks Northwest had definite ties to the history of its locale. Finding the heritage that Maryville and the University shared was a fairly easy task, as there were over 30 historical landmarks in town. Living in three of these historical landmarks were Mass Com- munications Chairman Fred Lamer, President Dean Hubbard and Geogra- phy and Geology Chairman Charles Frye and his wife Linda, an accounting and finance instructor. The Robinson-Bell-Baumli-Lamer House Built in 1888, this large asymmetrical Queen Anne style house had only four owners in 103 years. Its architecture included many unique features such as an extensive use of stained glass and many bay and irregularly-shaped windows. There were also intricate hand-carvings in the woodwork in every room. The house contained six fireplaces, two of which were especially rare. The parlor fire- place was made of genuine Italian marble and the fireplace in the study was constructed with bird ' s eye maple. The flue on this fire- place divided around a stained-glass window and then became one again at the top. Fred said the house had everything he and his wife Sandy wanted. " What we wanted was something with some character, " he said. " We both had a fondness for older, classical things. It had a charm we Uked and was full of intrigue. " Fred said the size of the house added to its intrigue. " It was large and I liked that idea, but not so large that it seemed cold and sterile, " he said. " Sometimes large structures could be forlorn, but I didn ' t get that feeling here. " The Lamers agreed the house ' s size did not stop them from utilizing it. " We really lived in it, " Sandy said. " We didn ' t spend all our time in one room. We ' d have coffee in the living room sometimes, and then we ' d move to the den the next time and so on. " The Lamers said when the weather was warm they spent many of their Sunday mornings relaxing and having coffee on the balcony that overlooked the yard. This large, second-floor balcony was a feature characteristic of Queen Anne style architecture which was prominent in the late 1800s. The historical aspects of the house, in addition to the architecture and location, gave the house a personality of its own. " There was a serenity about the house and the grounds that I deeply ap- preciated, " Fred said. " I tended to be a quiet and introspective person any- way, so the tranquility here lent itself to my needs. " -continued ' Therc was a serenity about the house and tlie grounds that I deeply appreciated.

Gaunt House This two-story house was built in 1870 on the site of the Gaunt Nursery. Romanesque in style, it was constructed with bricks made on the banks of the 102 River. The date of the house was laid in the brick on the west side. However, only the first three digits, 187, remained, as a window was inserted over the last digit. The Gaunt house was acquired as part of the land purchased for the University when it was founded in 1905. It had served as the home for all Northwest presidents. The architecture of the house included high ceil- ings indicative of ItaUanate style and a symmetri- cal, five-bay scheme. There was a central stair hall at the east entrance. A parlor and sitting room were to the north and south of this hall. These bays opened to the music room and the dining room to the south. There were five fireplaces, three of which were found on the main floor. The two in the basement had been closed off. According to President Dean Hubbard, the Gaunt house had architectural integrity and had been well-kept over the years. " Everything from the ceiling heights to the crown moldings were reminiscent of the late 1800s, " he said. " The University had really taken good care of the house, maintaining its historical charm. " Besides normal maintenance, there had been some changes made, as each president left his mark on the house. ' ' There was a joke that each president always added a door, " Aleta Hubbard said. " When we first heard that joke we said, ' We haven ' t added a door, ' but actually we had. We had french doors installed between the parlor and the music room. ' ' Other major changes included the addition of two porches, a kitchen, a dining room and a roof. " Most people didn ' t know this, but this house had two roofs, " Dean said. " Either they had problems with the old one or they knew that they would and didn ' t want to take a chance, so there was a roof inside of a roof. " For the Hubbards, the house had a personality that compared to their own. " We weren ' t really casual people, so we didn ' t mind that the house had a formal atmosphere, " Aleta said. " We liked the little touch of elegance. " The Anthony-Petry-Frye House This 1 12-year-old house was the first to be built north of the Wabash Railroad tracks. It had only been changed once with the addition of a porch. Architectural features included a large walnut staircase inside the house which had been com- pared to the staircase in the Gaunt house. Also notable were the high ceilings and doorways. ' ' We ' d always wanted a large yard with mature trees and a big, old house, " Dr. Charles Frye said. ' ' This house was spacious and didn ' t have a claus- trophobic feeling to it. " According to the Fryes, the size of the grounds and the house were their main considerations when deciding to purchase it. ' ' We knew the house was old, but its history was not a major factor, " Linda Frye said. " However, we had grown to er joy its character. It was very lived-in and we were never going to restore it to its pristine elegance. That just was not us. " The house had been connected to the Universi- ty for many years as the daughter of the original owners, the Anthonys, was an instructor in the Home Economics Department. Large, old trees in the yard shaded the house. There were also many flowers that had been planted by the Anthonys. " The lawns were original prairie that had never been turned, " Charles said. " In the springtime, 100 years of planting began to bloom. " by Scott Aibrighit v " J ».- ??s:5 THE THOMAS W.

PtK to by Todd Weddle 112 New Requirements • ■■ ew essentials Core curriculum refined At Northwest there were changes made in many areas, but some of the most dramatic were in the academic requirements. The 1990-1991 catalog contained new classes that were offered and some old classes that were required for the first time. For four years the Curriculum and Degree Requirements Committee had discussed the changes which centered around the decision to divide the core and liberal studies requirements. " The alteration, and especially the division of core and liberal studies, will result in a better-educated student at graduation, " curriculum commit- tee chair Ken Nelsen said. The major changes included a writing test for placement in honors com- position, a revamping of health class and making the basic computer class a requirement. Social and cultural studies requirements were also added. During Advantage ' 90, freshmen were required to write an essay in their seminar classes. The essay, along with ACT English scores, were used to place freshmen in appropri- ate composition classes. " This year students had to earn their way into Honors Composi- tion 115, " Dr. Michael Allen said. " They also had to prove that they needed Developmental Composition 110. There were fewer students in each and less misplaced people. " Using Computers was one new requirement. The class had been offered in the past, but wasn ' t required. Nelson said it was important for students to understand the electronic campus so they could get the most out of it. ' ' Using Computers taught me what kind of things 1 could use the computer for, " Valerie Harke said. " We also learned to use the software available. " Also added was Lifetime Wellness. It was much like the health class previ- ously offered, but required a lab which focused on fitness and nutrition. The staff for teaching both these courses and writing the new criteria were members of the Human Environmental Services department who had taught the old class or were interested in teaching the new classes. Other new requirements were in the social and cultural studies areas. Six new classes were offered and students chose which one they wanted to take. None of the new requirements affected upperclassmen, but they could choose to change to the Fall 1990 Catalog. Transfer students had the same requirements as entering freshmen. Students that entered Northwest in fall 1990 were provided with new op- portunities and advantages that would hopefully graduate them with a more well-rounded education. by Jennifer Chandler " The a] tc ration, and especially division of core and liberal studies, will result in a better-educated student at graduation.

Dr. Craig Goad, Dr. David Slater and Dr. William Trowbridge became editors of The Laurel Review in 1989. Trowbridge brought the magazine to Northwest after having known the previous editor when it was published at West Virginia Wesleyan College. " I had several poems and a short story published in the Review years ago, and I got to know the editor, " Trowbridge said. " I was an associate editor when I heard that the magazine was going to cease pubhcation for lack of money. I called the people at Wesleyan to see if anything could be done. " The magazine was moved to Northwest in 1986. Funding was made avail- able through the University ' s budget, grants from the Missouri Arts Coun- cil and magazine sales. Goad already had some experience with maga- zine editing when The Laurel Review came to Northwest. " I was the Envy ' s Sting editor on cam- pus, " Goad said. " That was a student magazine on campus that pub- lished poetry, so I had a handy and useful title when The Laurel Re- view was moved here. " Submissions to the magazine were received from across the country and overseas. Most of the authors and poets had been published before, but that was not a requirement. " We liked furmy things, but we didn ' t insist on it, " Trowbridge said. " We looked for elements of superior abiUty and were impressed with someone who used words effectively. " The editors had two rejection sUps for those whose works did not make it into the review. " We usually wrote something personal in a rejection, " Trowbridge said. " We had two rejection forms. One was a flat rejection and the other one asked the writer to submit some other works. " Those who were pubUshed in the magazine received a year ' s subscription and two copies of the issue their work was printed in. The Laurel Review has gained positive reviews in the Literary Magazine Review and the Library Journal. It also received the Pushcart Prize for the Best of the Small Press in 1990-91. The Pushcart Prize is an anthology pub- lished annually that reprints the best short stories and poems in a year. The Laurel Review was published in the winter and summer. With its pub- lication these three English professors got an opporturuty to hone their liter- ary skills. by Lynn Trapp " We looked for elements of superior ability and were impressed with someone who used words effectively.

Initially cost- ing $3.1 million, the VAX was a marvel for its time. However, to keep up with various departmentjil needs beyond VAX capabilities, 14 micro-computer labs were installed on campus. These micro- computers offered improved graphics, higher processing speed and more readily -available software. " These computer labs were to fill in any gaps left by the VAX, " Jon Rick- man, director of computer services and telecommunications, said. " They were not unlike what you would have found at most other schools, except we probably had more than most schools our size. " Besides the all-important word processing capabilities, the VAX also offered lectures, quizzes, computer-aided instruction, telephone billing in- formation, student and faculty directories and an encyclopedia. However, certain services needed by different departments were not possible. The Northwest Mis- _. ...,....„,..,.,..,.,.., sourian used a Compu- graphic 8400 typesetter and an Apple Macin- tosh to produce quality graphics and typogra- phy. However, student publications needed more than one Mac- intosh. " If I had one copy block that would take two to three minutes to set, I ' d have to wait in line two to three hours, " Kathy Barnes, Northwest Missourian news editor, said. Student publications wasn ' t the only area to suffer from lack of access to a micro-computer. The Geology Geography Department had its Mac lab moved to the Computer Science Department in hopes of increased availa- bility, but some found availability lessened. " We couldn ' t get in to use the computers because the room was always locked on weekends, " Heather Conley said. Regardless of the outcome of the computer move, the intent was not to decrease availability. In fact, equal access was the main goal of the elec- tronic campus, according to Rickman. " The highest attributes of the electronic campus continued to be provid- ing equal access to all students who chose to live on campus, " Rickman said. According to Rickman, what he saw as the purposes of the electronic cam- pus continued to be met. Besides providing equal access to all students and faculty, Rickman also cited these goals: to expose students to as many basic applications as possible in the first year so they could be used for the rest of their academic careers; and to provide extremely convenient access. While the VAX system may have needed some supplementing to make the campus truly electronic, it remained a system unsurpassed by any other col- lege in the nation. With the recorded four million log-ins per year being an indicative measure of its success, it was obvious the electronic campus was still on line. by Tom Chaplin Teresa Mattson Ifi had one copy block that would take two to three minutes to set, Fd have to wait in line two to three hours.

Some did it when they found themselves in a bind, while others were more spontaneous in their decision. Some students agreed that there were only a few good reasons to skip class. Reasons like a " near-death " sickness, a family emergency or a job interview were considered valid. However, a m ority of instances did not involve valid reasons, but in- stead were based on mere spontaneity. " Sometimes I just didn ' t feel like getting out of bed, " Charles Baggs said. " So, 1 didn ' t. " Sleep was one of the most popular reasons students gave for skipping class. " At times I ' d just sleep right through them, " Veronica DeJarnatt said. DeJarnatt pointed out what she and her roommate thought was another popular reason. " Often times classes would get in the way of our soaps, " she said. " If something really im- portant was happen- ing on ' Days of Our Lives, ' we ' d stay home. " Students also gave other reasons for their decisions to skip class. " We needed to get out of Maryville sometimes, " Jen- nifer Nelson said. " So we ' d all go down to St. Joe to shop instead of going to classes. " Nelson added that often the reason for not attending class was simple. " To be honest, sometimes I just got lazy, " she said. Weather was also a factor in the skipping-class phenomenon. According to some students, the diversity of the weather contributed to their lack of attendance. " On gorgeous, sunny days, Nodaway Lake was better than any classroom, " Nelson said. Then there was the other extreme. " When it was 20 degrees below and the wind was blowing like hell, class was cancelled as far as I was concerned, " Baggs said. Another factor mentioned was linked to being too social and waking up with a hangover. " If you had a rough night, you sometimes woke up sick and incoherent the next day, " Heather Altrock said. " If that happened, you tossed the alarm clock across the room and went back to sleep. Class was the last thing on your mind. " It seemed there were times when being in college did not always mean attending every class, every day. For whatever reason, students sometimes opted to skip a class or classes to either sleep, be lazy or participate in alter- native activities. by Scott Albright " When it was 20 degrees below and the wind was blowing like hell, elass was cancelled as far as I was concerned.

In fact, most fans probably did not real- ly know how many people were involved behind the scenes. According to Athletic Director Richard Flana- gan, the game did not begin with the opening kickof f , as initial preparations began as early as Tuesday morning with the grounds crew. " On Tuesday or Wednesday the field was mowed and trimmed, " Flanagan said. " TVash on the grounds was picked up, especially the area underneath the bleachers, and the press box was cleaned by custodians. " As the grounds crew and custodians kept the stadium in good shape, others prepared for game day. Of course, the athletes played the most impor- tant roles. The team put in many long, hard hours of practice every week to ensure peak performances during the football game. Likewise, the cheerleaders, Steppers and the Bearcat Marching Band trained throughout the week for their performances during the game and at halftime. Each group got together daily to sharpen their routines. " We practiced for 90 minutes a day during the week and for an hour on game day, " Bearcat Stepper Cindy Heimann said. " We needed to practice a gain on game day to set the last minute corrections and to get in sync. " The morning of game day was hectic as many last-minute preparations took place. The team had to prepare themselves mentally, as well get equipment checked and have their iryuries wrapped. The before-game preparations could take approximately two to three hours, so the players had to be in the locker room early. Also, last-minute preparations were made on the field as it was striped with field paint. Flanagan said the striping was done by gradu- ate assistant football coaches and had to be done by 10 a.m. ' ' Most of the grad assistants were going to be football coaches so it was to their advantage to know how to mark off a field, " he said. The band hit the field at 10 a.m. and as they practiced their routine, members of the athlet- ic department put down the field markers. " When the band finished practicing at about 11, everything was ready to go; we were all set up, " Flanagan added. During the marching band ' s practice other groups were busy preparing and doing their part to make game day a success. Members of M- Club, which was made up of letter- men, were getting ready to sell tick- ets and hand out programs. Some M-Club members also worked the chains on the field. As kickoff ap- proached, fans filed into Ricken- brode to cheer on the Bearcats. The kickoff brought the crowd to their feet as the game was underway. Watching the game, most fans probably did not realize all that had to be done in preparation.

Ranked as high as fourth in one preseason NCAA Division n poll, the Bearcats seemed des- tined for one of its best seasons ever. Reality, however, was an earth-crashing shocker as Northwest struggled to a dismal 2-8-1 record and finished tied for eighth in the MIAA race. Close game losses, defensive lapses and failure to come up with the big plays were just a few of the reasons the Bearcats failed to chalk up numbers in the win column. Northwest ' s once- powerful wishbone offense, led by quarterback Jeremy Wilson and running back Ed Tillison, never quite got to full strength until the season finale due to iiyuries. " We were disap- pointed with the sea- son naturally be- cause we knew we were a better team, ' ' head coach Bud El- liott said. " There were a lot of iiyuries to key players and we dropped some close games. We just didn ' t get the ball in the end zone when we needed to. " Pans got their first glimpse of what would be a continuing trend when the Bearcats dropped a close contest in the home opener against Missouri Western. FaU- ing behind early in the contest, Northwest staged a comeback only to fall two points short in a 27-25 loss. The ' Cats got back on track the following week, overcoming turnovers and mistakes to claim a 20-9 victory over Southwest Baptist. The win moved Northwest ' s MIAA mark to 1-1, but it was short-lived as the Bearcats went on a four-game losing skid that vanished any hopes of a conference title or postseason berth. Missouri Southern scored with 1:27 remain- ing in the game and tacked on a two-point conversion for a 28-27 win over the ' Cats. It was a loss that Northwest never quite recovered from as they followed up with losses to Southeast, 30-14; Central, 17-14; and Pittsburg State, 49-14. " You couldn ' t just pick one thing that led to the losses, " Jason Krone said. " There were a lot of factors involved that ranged from iiyuries to our performance on the field. We had some bright spots but there was a lot to be disappoint- ed about. " The Bearcats picked up their second win in a 21-13 downing of Missouri-RoUa. In the game, freshman Lawrence Luster replaced an iiyured Wilson at the quarterback slot and scrambled for two of the ' Cats ' three touchdown runs. The offense was short-lived, though, as Wash- burn University shut Northwest out 14-0 in the ' Cats Homecoming game. Northwest managed only 113 total yards and the scoreless effort was the first since the 1988 season opening 41-0 loss to St. Cloud State. The Don Black Memorial Trophy, given to the outstanding Northwest player in the Homecom- ing game, was awarded to middle linebacker Dave Svehla who accounted for a game high 17 tackles. The ' Cats dropped another close one on the road in a 34-31 loss to Northeast Missouri State. The game was the final MIAA contest of the year for Northwest, who closed the conference portion of the season with a 2-7 mark. " Games on the road were tougher than the ones at home because of added distractions, " linebacker Spencer Gilbert said. ' ' After the close -continued Fbotball 125 FOOTBALL High Expectations -continued losses at the beginning of the year, we had a meeting that pulled us together. We played well on the road but just didn ' t get the breaks we needed, and our kicking game was hurting us. ' ' After a 10-10 tie with Peru State, the ' Cats showed the same form which had paced them to a 9-3 record the season before. Despite a 45-42 loss to Kearney State, Northwest tallied up a school record 628 yards of offense while the Wilson-Tillison duo scrambled for a com- bined 474-yard effort including three touchdowns. " We really got back into the way we should have been playing offensively against Kearney, ' ' Elliott said. " That had to have been one of the brighter points for us of the season. I ' m disap- pointed with the way the season ended; but there were a lot of close games that, had we have won, would have made a difference. The attitude of the team was good and they really stuck it out together " Despite the lack of team success, three in- dividuals went on to earn AU-MIAA honors. Svehla picked up laurels at the linebacker slot for the third straight season with a unanimous selection from conference coaches. Svehla, who was unsure of his chances of earning honors af- ter the losing season, led the team in tackles for the third straight year with 126. Tillison and defensive end Erik Petersen also earned first team spots. Tillison, second in MIAA rushing, averaged 114 yards per game. Petersen led the ' Cats with nine sacks, seven two blocked kicks.

It was a goal which gave them their best record since 1985. During the final month of the season, the .500 mark looked as if it was beyond reach. The team ' s record was 16-19 with two weeks left. The University of Missouri-St. Louis tourna- ment and the conference tournament at home were the only matches left. They split their first two matches in the UMSL tournament and were placed in the Silver Me- dal Division. They won their final three match- es, capturing the Silver Medal championship. Senior hitter Kathy Lauher, who was select- ed to the AU-Toumament team, had 31 kills during one match to set a school record. The previous record for kills in a match was 28, a record held by both Lauher and Mary Beth Bishop. Lauher had an incredible tournament, ac- cording to coach Peggy Voisin. " She played the best I had seen her play in two years, " Voisin said. " She was nailing the ball from everywhere and anywhere. She definitely deserved to be named to the All- Tournament team. " The 4-1 record during the tournament im- proved the Bearkittens overall mark to 20-20 with the conference tournament one week away. The Bearkittens hosted the tournament, but the home court advantage was not a factor. Prior to the tournament, the team posted a 3-5 record at home. It was the first time they played at home since Oct. 27, wl en they host- ed the Northwest Invitational. Thi Kittens lost their final three matches of that tournament. " We put too much pressure on ourselves to play well at home, " Voisin said. " I don ' t think we had any bad matches at home, but we were just nervous. " The Bearkittens proved they could play at home with a victory over Pittsburg State in three straight games. They won the match by scores of 15-7, 15-3 and 15-9. The ' Kittens lost their second match of the tournament to Southeast Missouri State. " We could not have played any better against Southeast, " Voisin said. " The scores didn ' t in- dicate how much we made them work for what they got. " The ' Kittens were 1-1 during the tournament, moving their overall record to 21-21, the best record for the team since 1985. " It was a long, dry four years, " senior hitter Annette Brugmann, co-captain, said. " This team has been the closest during the four years that I have been here. " One problem the team con- tinually faced throughout the season was trouble serv- ing the ball. The team worked on the problem dur- ing every practice and Coach Voisin even tried some crea- tive drills to help. " We had them serving at plastic bowUng pins, chairs, hula hoops, and I even stood in a chair and said, ' Serve it to me. ' Boy, I got some good serves then, " she said. According to Lauher, the drills proved very beneficial to the players. She said it made them try a Uttle harder on their serves. " Coach sitting in a chair was probably a good incentive. We tried to serve the ball more at her as opposed to an empty chair. " The team ended the year with a loss, but a thing but a defeat. Dy GCHC MOrFlS , " ■ . ' , _. ' • ' • ' ■■- ' ,. ' . ' ., " " ' .

The 1990 season, as far as performance, was average for the Bearkitten cross country team. However, this team achieved a measure of suc- cess some teams can not claim — becoming close friends outside of competing. The team ran well early in the year, finishing fourth at the Simpson Invitational and second » at the Johnson County and Northwest invitationals. Three runners finished in the top 10 at the ' Kit- tens ' only home meet. Sherry Messner finished second, Kim 0 ' Riley was fourth and first-year run- ner Rheba Eustice finish- ed seventh. Even as the runners worked hard to improve their times during the year, iryuries continually disrupted their efforts. The lowest point of the season occurred at the MIAA championships, where the team placed sixth out of six teams. Both Sherry Messner, the team ' s top runner, and Tina Ross fell and were unable to finish the race. Kim O ' Riley and Darcy Aldrich were also ham- pered by iryuries during the season. ' ' The iryury situation was really frustrating, ' ' Lisa McDermott said. " Everyone wanted to run, but sometimes with iryuries you just couldn ' t. It was hard not to get mentally down, but we tried to help each other stay positive. " McDermott said the long season contributed to the iivjury problem of shins and swollen feet. Although most of these iryuries were nagging. they did not prevent the women from running in practice or meets. But as one runner after another became hurt, the toll the iryuries took affected the team ' s performance, especially at the end of the season. This was in greatest evidence at the Division II Great Lakes Regional as the ' Kittens ' top run- ner was Eustice who placed 51st. Despite the iryuries and disappointments they brought, the team remained a close unit. Denise Ibsen said Cline was a good motivator for the team both inside and outside of cross country. " This year Coach Cline expected more from us, ' ' Ibsen said. " She knew from past years what to expect from us, and trained us harder. One thing that was different was that she told us if she was disappointed with our performance, which was good feedback. " McDermott also credited Cline for making the year fun for the team. When the team traveled to Kensha, Wis., for the Midwest Cross Coun- try Classic, they stayed with her sister and went shopping. They also took a trip to Kansas City and went to Worlds of Fun. " Coach went out of her way for us, and she did a lot of things together with the team out- side of just practice, " McDermott said. For the first time at Northwest, three nmners, Diana Jensen, McFarland and Ibsen competed all four years together, which helped contrib- ute to the closeness. " It was really neat at our last meet, " McDer- mott said. " Kim (O ' Riley) said a little prayer at the beginning. It was moments like that that made the team and the seniors ' last meet more special. " Although the ' Kittens ' season turned from one of high expectation to one filled with dis- appointment due to numerous iryuries, the team was more than a success at becoming a close-knit unit. by Marsha Hoffman Women ' s Cross Country 131 Running Into Frustration ■N " ,. -N v V t V» ' ' -■ ■ ■ ■ MEN ' S CROSS COUNTRY ;-■■: . -■.,■, , ., ■ ' . -■. .■X- ' ,■V .Av Impressive beginning diminishes as Bearcats encounter obstacles or every three steps forward the Bearcat cross country team ran, it seemed they ran three steps backward. First, ir juries and illness seemed to plague the team. Then, one of the top runners ' eligibility was questioned. But despite these problems, the team began the season with high hopes of hav- ing a top finish at Regionals. " The neat thing about the Husker Classic was that it determined how well everybody, includ- ing the tra nsfers, would work together as a team, " Eric Green said. " Four of the top seven were new, so we did pretty good to finish third at the first meet. " The ' Cats improved over the next several meets and cracked the NCAA Tbp 20. Kenrick Sealy was the individual champion at the John- son County Invitational. A week later at the Concordia Invitational, Robb Finegan and Sealy ran one-two as the ' Cats won their first meet of the year and moved to 14th in the rankings. " The ranking made our attitudes more posi- tive, " Green said. " We were working together, especially since we were the first team to be ranked since 1984. " One factor for the team ' s success besides working together was that the runners basical- ly knew in what place they would be rurming, according to Green. ' ' Basically, Sealy and Finegan were first or se- cond all year, " he said. " The team was also balanced because several different runners switched off finishing anywhere from third to fifth. " But iryuries and the question of Ryun Middle- ton ' s eligibility interrupted the team ' s smooth season. Middleton, who had transferred from Division I Southwest Missouri State, had been told he would be eligible without sitting out for a semester. But during the season, an opposing MIAA coach questioned his eligibility. " It affected me mentally because I wasn ' t able to run for the team, " Middleton said. " I ran several meets before conference unattached, but 1 couldn ' t get psyched for the races. " Middleton was told he was eligible just two days before the conference meet. Although he was happy to be able to run, he said he was not able to get 100 percent mentally prepared in time for the MIAA meet. Injuries then became a hurdle as Green fell during the Northwest Invitational and iiyured a foot, and Sealy and Sean White were also hampered by iruuries. " I had a pretty good time going until some- one behind me stepped on my ankle, " Green said. " I fell hard, which was scary, and I wasn ' t able to finish. " Coach Richard Alsup said the season had progressed well until in- juries became a factor. ' ' The team never lost desire to improve in practice, " Alsup said. ' ' The key factor was the ttyuries. Some of us got mentally down and gave up by Regionals. " After their promising start, the team finished conference and Regionals frustrated, finishing a disappointing 15th.

FYom the Vaseline that shone on their lips and teeth projecting a dazzling smile to the finely pressed pleats in their uniforms adding sharpness and precision to their appearance, they were impec- cable. Members of the Bearcat Steppers and the var- sity and junior varsity cheerleading squads had added the final touches and were ready to take the stage at the National Cheerleading Associ- ation ' s Cheerleading and Dance Competition. Although they looked invincible as they stood rigidly with heads held high, below the surface of their anticipation was fear. The excitement that had been building for months finally climaxed and became the inspiration to go on. ' ' For me, it was one of the most nervous mo- ments of my life, " Stepper Mindy Lee said. " It was something that I had always wanted to do. I had been dancing since I was three. " For the Steppers it was their second trip to the national championships. They gained valu- able experience in their debut year that provid- ed them with inspiration for their return trip. " Last year everyone was really surprised that we even qualified for nationals, " Lee said. " This year we kind of had the attitude that, well we ' ve qualified, we ' ve got the potential now, let ' s just do something with it. ' " And that they did. Dancing their way into the finals, the Steppers came away with eighth place in the field of 10 Division II finalists. Deep down the squad was disappointed that they had not placed higher according to Lee, but they came away happy because they had achieved the original goal of making the finals. " One word that I could describe it best with was proud, " Lee said. " We started from rock bottom and we got to wh ere we are now. " Having placed in the top six for the past three consecutive years, it was nothing new for the varsity cheerleaders to be competing in the national championships. On the practice mat right before their prelimi- nary round, the squad nailed a perfect routine. But when they stepped out on to the brightly- lit mat in front of the attentive judges and the roaring crowd, something seemed different. ' ' After they performed, I started getting a lit- tle sick feeling in my stomach that we weren ' t going to make it, " sponsor and coach Cherine Heckman said. According to her. Division II was very com- petitive and for the first time the cheerleaders found themselves watching the finals. " We had 14 people that really wanted it, that were really willing to give up things to be able to achieve it, " Senior Captain Bev Owen said. " And I guess that was what was so frustrating, because for the first time we all went in with the mental attitude that we really wanted it and were working for it. " The junior varsity squad, the first in the history of the school, provided a pleasant surprise finishing seventh in the all-girls division. Due to a tie in the preliminary round, the squad was given the seventh-place trophy but did not get to compete in the finals. " I really thought they could have ended up fourth or fifth had they had the opportunity, " Heckman said. " I was very pleased that they ended up seventh in the na- tion, especially when a year ago we hadn ' t even thought about having them as a squad. " National competition helped the cheer and dance squads gain respect and promote a good Swest. by Brandon Russell SECOND THOUGHT ' ' Forme, it was one of the mos i nervous moments of my life.

Photo by n 1983, the Bearkitten basketball team was na- tionally-ranked and ran their record to 25-5. The 1991 team looked like they were attempt- ing to match this feat as they began the season by winning their first eight games. They opened the season by defeating both the University of Dubuque and William Perm Col- lege to win the Ryland Milner Classic. The team ' s wiixning streak came to an end with a 102-69 loss to Augustana College of Sioux Falls, S.D., during the ninth game of the season. " After last year ' s 20-10 season, the team treated the 8-0 start as if it were a carry-over of last year, " coach Wayne Winstead said. " It caused a positive feeling on the team and helj)ed the team have a positive outlook on the season. " MIAA preseason polls ranked the ' Kittens third behind Central Missouri State and South- east Missouri State, and with four return- ing starters, it looked like they had the ex- perience to make this prediction hold true. Two of the team ' s most memorable con- tests of the season were wins against rival Missouri Wes- , tern State College, both home and away. " Beating Western was an accomplishment, " Colleen White said. " They were big rivals and beating them made it more secure that we deserved it. ' ' The ' Kittens first defeated Missouri Western at St. Joseph in January, 81-62, never letting them get closer than 16 points during the final 13 minutes of the game. The ' Kittens were trail- ing until seven minutes remained in the first half when Lisa Kenkel sarJc two three-pointers to give Northwest the push it needed to take the lead for good. In February, the ' Kittens faced the Lady Griffins at home where they defeated them again, 68-56. " When you were out on the court, you did everything you could to help the team pull ahead, " Kenkel said. " I knew that if I had the ball in my hand , I could do something to help . " Throughout the year, the ' Kittens worked on building a close-knit team and making it work for them on the court. " Whatever happened on the coiut, stayed on the court, and whatever happened off of the court didn ' t come with us, " White said. " That part kept us together as a team and as people. ' ' The ' Kittens finished the season 19-9 overall and 9-7 in conference play. Their postseason hopes were dashed when they lost to Washburn 71-58 in the quarter-final round of the MIAA tournament. " We were all disappointed about losing; we felt that we should have won, " Kenkel said. " We lost some intensity in the second half and had some missed opportunities. When you played a good team, it tended to cause problems and to rattle the team somewhat. " Despite their disappointing postseason, the ' Kittens did not go unnoticed, as Kenkel and Danae Wagner were named second team MIAA, while the other starters, Chris Swanson, Colleen White and Susan Ringer received honorable mention listings. The ' Kittens may not have repeated history, but their season could be looked back on with tion by their fans. Dy BCCKy AilCfl Women ' s Basketball 137 No Place Like Home MEN ' S BASKETBALL ' Cate struggle for a win on the road; post first losing record in 10 years ife on the road around the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association conference was exceptionally hard on teams during the season. A case in point was the Bearcat basketball team. Sporting a different look which included up to four new starters at one point in the schedule, the Bearcats struggled to a 2-10 road mark and finished the year 12-15 overall. " We had a lot of problems on the road get- ting mentally up for the games, " Coach Steve Tappmeyer said. " Getting all the new players working together was a challenge but we did have some good play, especially from the freshmen. " Although Northwest finished their first los- ing season since 1981, the Bearcats showed glimpses of hope early in the year with two opening wins over Grandview and Peru State in the Ryland Milner Tournament. Three North- west players, senior Leonard Wilson and juniors Larry Brown and Jarrod Harrell were selected to the all-tournament team. Brown was also selected as the Most Valuable Player of the tournament with a two-game total of 31 points and nine rebounds. The victories were short-lived, though, as the ' Cats dropped a two game road trip, capped off with an 84-50 loss to the University of Pitts- burgh, an NCAA Division I team. Following this, Northwest managed to rebound and build some confidence as they headed into MIAA play by posting a 5-1 record during their next six contests. " We played well at times and played some solid defense, " Brown said. " We started to gel and come together at points which helped us out. There were times when everything was at a positive. " Conference play proved to be a thorn in the side of the ' Cats as they struggled un- successfully to garner a conference postseason bid, due in part to a disappointing 1-7 road mark. Operung up with losses to Washburn, 89-81; Pittsburg State, 93-89; and Southwest Baptist, 81-71; the Bearcats quickly found themselves struggling in the cellar of the MIAA. However, despite losses to nationally-ranked opponents such as Missouri Western, Central Missouri State and Missouri-St. Louis, Northwest did ex- perience some success. Knocking off Northeast Missouri and Lincoln, both at home, the ' Cats went on to pick up a 1 10-107 triple overtime victory over Lincoln in Jefferson City for their only conference road win of the season. Although they hunted until the last minute for a post-season bid, Northwest finished the re- mainder of their conference schedule with a 1-2 mark to finish with a 4-12 record against MIAA opponents. " I don ' t think we were ever blown out of a game, and we played competitively with the Mis- souri Western and Central Missou- ri teams, " Tappmeyer said. " We had points where we would come together but just didn ' t get the ball in the basket when we needed to. " All-Conference honors went to Brown; Kevin Shelvin, who made the honorable mention list; and freshman guard Al Jackson who was named to the all-freshman team. With their first losing record in 10 years, the Bearcats did not achieve the level of success they had experienced in the past. However, key performances for individual players helped wise gray season.

That was the number of fans who filed into the Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan for the Bearcats game against the NCAA Division I, Kansas State Wildcats. The crowd was something the players were anticipating, but really could not prepare for. The spirited K-state fans cheered at every home team basket, and heckled the visitors for each of theirs. The Bearcats found themselves preforming in front of an acid-tounged crowd that seemed to jump on each mistake made. One Bearcat center had the crowd on his back the entire game. Chad Deahl found out what the fans could be like to an opposing player when one of his shots missed completely. " You had things like that happen in high school, ' ' Deahl said. ' ' They might dog you a lit- tle, but it wasn ' t like 10,000 people yelling at you. That was a new experience for me. " Every time Deahl had the ball after his missed shot the crowd would chant, " air ball, " loud enough to be heard all across the state of Kansas. Deahl was not the only Bearcat to be heck- led by the crowd. The fans razzed Jarrod Har- rell after he fouled out of the game with 9:27 remaining. Their chant was, " na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye... " " It was a rowdy crowd, " Harrell said. " I knew they were going to do that. " The Kansas State fans had plenty to cheer about, with the Wildcats handing the Bearcats a 98-44 loss. The Bearcats led for 26 seconds with a score of 2-0, but 20 seconds later the Wildcats took the lead and never let up. The Bearcats did not help themselves any during the first five minutes of the game. They turned the ball over on six of their first eight possessions. The start was what really hurt the team, according to coach Steve Tappmeyer. " The start really dictated the game, " Tapp- meyer said. " After our first few mistakes, we really started to play not to make mistakes rather than going out and attacking. " The players had mixed feelings on how much of a factor the crowd was during the game. " The crowd wasn ' t a factor, " Larry Brown, who led the Bearcats in scoring with 16 points, said. " When I went to play, 1 went to win. 1 just took it like any other game. " Deahl said he wasn ' t sure what was wrong, but the team was obviously out of sync for some reason. " I didn ' t know if we were a little bit intimi- dated or what, but we didn ' t exe- cute, " Deahl said. The game was disappointing for several fans on hand for the 54-point loss. Maryville resident Stefani Ides, who was a student at K-State, had mixed feelings about the game. ' ' I wanted Kansas State to win, just because I went there, " Ides said. " But, 1 wanted Northwest to do well. I thought they were intimidated by the size, the heckling crowd and the lack of fans from home. " Ides said she was surprised when she heard the Wildcats were going to play Northwest. " When I saw it I said, ' Oh my God, we ' re playing them ' , " Ides said. " I thought it was some kind of mistake or something. " The contest with Kansas State was scheduled after the Wildcats had trouble finding a Divi- sion I opponent to play on Dec. 8.

This was precisely what Bearcat baseball players were thinking when untimely showers resulted in the cancel- lation of a number of games early in the season. Rain or no rain, however, when the Bearcats were finally able to take the field, they quick- ly proved the late start had not hampered their ability to win. For the third consecutive season, the ' Cats captured the MIAA North Division Champion- ship, boasting a regular season record of 23-12. The ' Cats play also earned them national recog- nition, peaking 4th on the NCAA Division n poll and finishing the year ranked 7th. A great deal of the success was attributed to the chemistry between players and the en- thusiasm they demonstrated for the game. " Everyone on the g team was pulling for MjH H other, " Bryan - - Wandrey said. " If someone was having a bad day, there was always someone else there to pick him up. " Another contribut- ing factor was the time and energy that the coaching staff spent with the team. " I had been around a lot of coa- ches, " Dave Baldwin said. " And they were the best I had seen. It didn ' t matter what they usually coached (pitching or hitting), they were willing to help you with any part of your game. " In spite of their intimidating regular season performance, the post-season ended in disap- pointment. After a first-round win against the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the ' Cats were eliminated from the MIAA tournament, suffering consecutive losses to Central Missou- ri State and Missouri Southern universities. " We went into the tournament very confi- dent, expecting to win, " head coach James Johnson said. " It was very disappointing to have back-to-back losses, especially against teams we had defeated earlier in the season. " The team ' s poor performance also silenced high hopes of receiving an invitation to the NCAA Division II playoffs. Although the season concluded on a sour note, a number of Bearcats earned recognition for individual excellence. The highest honors went to catcher Gary Stickney and outfielder Jeff White who were named to the All-MIAA first team. Wandrey was selected as MIAA out- standing freshman of the year. Other ' Cats receiving recognition for their personal achievements included pitcher David Suggs, shortstop Jody Jeffries, outfielder Joe lannuzzi and designated hitter Dave Svehla, all of whom made second-team All-MIAA. First and third baseman Todd Bainbridge and pitch- er Brian Greunke received honorable mentions. " Attitudes of players like Bainbridge and Svehla really helped the team, " Baldwin said. ' ' They were always excited in practice and in games. They really got everyone pumped up. " Even though the ' Cats post-season perfor- mance fell short of their expectations, they proved they were a force to be reckoned with and looked back on the season with a great deal of pride. " It was a shame to finish up the season like we did, but we needed to reflect on the posi- tive things more, " Johnson said. " We had a combination of great coaches and athletes.

" ■■ or the Bearkitten Softball team, the season was one in which improvement was overshadowed by inconsistency. With a record of 18 wins and 24 losses, the ' Kittens experienced periods of impressive play. However, inexperience led to some dis- appointing losses. According to head coach Gayla Eckoff , the team made some improvements over the pre- vious season in individual areas and in team attitude. " The team had a 100 percent turnabout in attitude, " Eckoff said. ' ' The returners were determined to improve and many inexperi- enced players were called on. Although we didn ' t have a winning season, the team played with a lot of heart. " There were times when it seemed nothing could go wrong. Early in a 23-3 win against Quincy College, the team broke o r tied six school records. However, wins such as that were accompa- nied by some bitter losses. " We had a 1-0 lead late in the game against Washburn, " catcher Rhonda Eustice said. " They came back and won 4-3. We should have won that one. " During spring break the team participated in the Rebel Games in Florida where collegiate teams from across the country went to play dur- ing their spring break. The trip was highlight- ed by a win over the third-ranked team in the country, Florida Southern University. Eustice said the win against Florida Southern was a big confidence booster for the team and helped them realize they had the potential to play with the best. " We were really pleased with our perfor- mance, " pitcher Christy Blankenau said. " Wins and losses could go either way and they didn ' t go our way all the time, but I think we learned that we knew what we were doing. " An example of this came in a late season game against the University of Missouri-Kansas City in which the ' Kittens came out on top 7-1 . The win gave Eckoff her 200th career victory and was a morale booster for the team. " The UMKC win was good for us, " Eckoff said. " We were experiencing a late-season slump, but in that game we played up to our maximum potential. " When the MIAA tournament rolled around in late April, the ' Kittens were not considered potential contenders for the title. However, ac- cording to Eckoff, the team never gave up on themselves. " The season was coming to a close and we wanted to end it strong, " Eckoff said. " We wanted to do well. " Unfortunately, the ' Kittens dropped their first two games of the tournament to Missouri Southern and Southwest Baptist. The tourna- ment ended with the team finishing seventh. Post-season honors went to shortstop Lisa Kenkel who was named to the first team all- MIAA. Outfielder Lara Andersen and pitcher Carol Jarosky were given all-MLA A honorable mention.

Finishing near the top of the meet standings in each outing, the Bearcats managed three first-place team victories which included wins at the Central Missouri State University indoor and outdoor meets. " Track was one of those weird sports where everyone competed as individuals, but when they went to a scoring meet they banded together, " coach Richard Alsup said. " We managed to compete well in all but one meet. That was the indoor conference meet, where we fell flat on our faces. After that the guys decided they were better than that and got motivated to win. " The indoor season produced two national qualifiers for Northwest. Hurdler Renwick Bovell picked up AU-American honors in the 55-meter hurdles with a 7.61 clocking, good for sixth place. Ken Onuaguluchi also earned post- season honors with a second-place finish in the shot put with a toss of 54-7 A. The Bearkittens indoor season was marked by improved performances among many athletes, including shot putter Jennifer Holdiman and high jumper Stepharue Johnson. However, they managed only a sbrth-place finish at the confer- ence meet. " I liked the way the season went for me, " Holdiman said. " Throwing against some of the teams who were Division 1 schools was kind of intimidating, but overall it went OK. " Moving outside proved to be the enthusiasm that was needed by the squads as both teams placed high at the Northwest Invitational which was run on the new outdoor track facility. " I think having the new track provided a lot of motivation for the team, ' ' Alsup said. " I no- ticed a lot less ir juries and I think we were a little better prepared. " At the invitational, the men ' s squad took first out of 11 teams and the women garnered a sec- ond-place finish among nine teams. Although the meet was run early in the season, it proved to be the shape of things to come for the ' Cats as they continued to place in the top of the team standings. Highlighting the outdoor effort for the Bear- cats was the conference meet at Jefferson City where Northwest took third place with 110 points. Leading the way for the ' Cats was Bovell who collected wins in the 110-meter high hur- dles 14.76 and 400-meter hurdles 53.26. Onu- aguluchi also picked up a first place finish in the discus with a toss of 175-4. The Bearkittens also continued improvement after the Northwest Invitational. This includ- ed a 10th place finish at the CMSU Relays among a field of 22 squads. At the conference meet, Meaghan Wilson was Northwest ' s stron- gest scoring punch with a second-place finish in the heptathlon with a two-day point total of 3,778, which propelled the ' Kittens to a fifth-place team finish. Bearcat athletes Rob Finegan and Onuaguluchi earned AU-American honors at the NCAA Division n meet. Finegan clocked a 30:32 in the 10,000-meter run, good for fourth, while Onuaguluchi placed second in the discus, 175-11; and fifth in pult: .by Dale Brown Long distance runner Sherry Messner paces behind a Tarkio College oppo- nent in the Northwest Invitational.

Net Success Result of Effort Experience and extensive practice leads ' Kittens to national ranking D isplaying tremen- dous improvement, the Bearkitten tennis team ' s practice and en- thusiasm helped them to become ranked num- ber 21 nationally. With only two additior s to the team, the ' Kit- tens ' experience of working together was on their side. No. 1 player Juhe Callahan attributed the team ' s improvement to concentrating on more extensive conditioning practices. Callahan said the team either sprinted, lifted weights or ran eyery day. Sometimes they ran up to three miles during a practice. " We pushed each other to work harder and improve our game, " Calla- han said. " We were at least 95 percent better than last year. " Some of the ' Kittens ' toughest matches were against perennial MIAA contenders, Lincoln Uni- versity and Southwest Baptist. " Lincoln and Southwest Baptist were solid all the way down, " Callahan said. " Most teams only have strong No. 1,2 and 3 players, but all of their players were very good. " Callahan also said that because those teams had beaten Northwest in the past, the ' Kittens were very intimidated by them. Most of the team ' s matches ended in close scores, so the biggest disappointment was be- ing defeated by Northeast Missouri State, 6-3, whom they had beaten the previous year.

" They just got lucky and things weren ' t happening for some of us. " The ' Kittens revealed their improved playing again when they tied for second place with NMSU at the MIAA Conference Tournament. Callahan placed first in the No. 1 singles cham- pionship and finished the season 17-3. " At the matches we really pulled together and played well as a team, " Leah Erickson said. " When one of us was playing, the others would be along the sidelines cheering us on. It was a big positive. " Three other players, Mitzi Craft, No. 3 sin- gles; Kim Kratina, No. 4 singles; and Lisa Lawrence, No. 6 singles, finished second in their MIAA championship matches. Callahan was also the first Northwest women ' s tennis player to receive an NCAA post-season invita- tion. She lost 6-2, 6-2 against Debbie Douglas of California State-Hayward in the first match at the tournament. However, she regarded the ex- perience as a great learn- ing opportunity and thought it would improve her playing in the future. " I had to play the No. 9 woman in the nation, " Callahan said.

His MIAA conference match was played indoors due to rain. Photo by Brandon Russell, :-- raditionally tennis didn ' t draw crowds as large as other sports at Northwest, but the Bearcats had a season that made many people take notice. " It didn ' t always seem apparent, but people knew who was on the team, " No. 2 player Lalo de Anda said. " They were interested in how we were doing and even some of my teachers asked. " During the season, team members lifted weights, sprinted and put in two to three hours of playing time daily in order to condition them- selves for upcoming matches. The hours of rigorous training paid off for the team, as they finished the season 18-3. This included victories against four Division I teams: Univer- sity of Missouri-Kansas City, 9-0; Creighton University, 6-3; Universi- ty of Misssouri-Columbia, 8-1; and the University of Northern Iowa, 7-2. For the second consecutive year, the MIAA boiled down to a duel be- tween Northwest and their toughest rival, Southwest Baptist. " I didn ' t think we could beat Southwest, " No. 4 player Rob Pekar said. " But I was determined to fight like a dog. " In spite of an outstanding team ef- fort. Northwest tied for second place with Northeast Missouri State Uni- versity in the conference, while Southwest Baptist took first and went on to nationals. " Southwest Baptist had a mental edge on us, " de Anda said. " They stayed calm, even to the end, while we sometimes got too tense about winning. " Asst. coach Jorge Castilla added that South- west Baptist offered five tennis scholarships while Northwest only offered one, giving them an advantage in attracting top players. Though the team fell just short of the Divi- sion II nationals, two players did advance. No. 1 player Lucco Orellano qualified for nationals, but lost his opening match to Alex Haurilenko of the University of California-Poly San Luis Obispo, 6-2, 4-6, 7-6. The No. 1 doubles team of Pekar and Orellano also qualified for nationals with a 13-4 record. They were also eliminated in the opening round by a team from California-Davis. The team attributed their improvement to several different things. " We played better mainly because everyone was such good friends, " Owen Hambrook said. " We were friends even after tennis. " Pekar said the small team strongly support- ed one another and each member contributed a diversity of attitudes, skills and techniques. " Closeness is good because tennis is such an individualistic sport, " Pekar said. " You ' re out there alone fighting someone you don ' t even know, but your team is cheering for you. " Players also cited the support of the women ' s team and their coaches as having a positive ef- fect on their play. The team agreed they had reached further and had attained greater goals, but had also felt the need for more. ' ' We only had four or five matches that were a real challenge, " Pekar said. " When you don ' t have the constant competition, you can ' t ele- vate your game. " In an effort to alleviate this concern, coach Mark Rosewell planned to reduce the number of matches, but increase the number of matches against tougher opponents in the future. The Bearcats missed their goal of reaching na- tionals. However, they did receive a great deal a successful season.

Photo by Scott Jens(jft-],(xj,c. . Darren Muckey shows the the conflict between sports and academics. Photo illustration by Scott Jenson ue to the extensive amount of time ath- letes spent on practices and games, their class work sometimes was pushed aside. Three years ago that problem was recognized and the Stu- dent Athlete Success Program was formed. In order to participate in the program, a stu- dent was required to be a varsity athlete, attend study halls according to placement scores and grades and carry at least 12 hours per semester. Student athletes receiving a full-ride scholar- ship were required to enroll in a minimum of 15 semester hours. In addition, athletes were re- quired to complete at least 24 hours per year to be eligible the next season. Though many students met these standard requirements, only 350 chose to participate in the program. This may have been less than hoped for, but the enthusiasm shown by those who participa- ted was a sign that it was work- ing. " 1 have benefited immensely, " Amy Rold said. " It was a very positive program and 1 wish more people would have taken part in it. " The most recent statistics on the program proved positive in that 89.9 percent of the athletes earned over a 2.0 in Pall ' 89. According to Leslie Spald- ing, director and only full-time staff member, most students did considerably better than advocates of the program had anticipated. " I loved working with them, " Spalding said. " They had lots of motivation; it was just a matter of focusing that motivation on their studies. " Now that the resources were available, it was up to the athletes to take advantage of them. Those who did so found the program to be a great asset to their studies. " They helped you prepare for tests and classes and got you further help if you needed it, " foot- ball player Larry Brown said. Spalding pointed out that the athletes some- times had to work harder simply to overcome the stereotypes placed upon them. The main point she tried to get across to them was the importance of going to class. She stressed that the time required for athletics was not a valid excuse for a poor aca- demic performance. Twelve Northwest athletes made the MIAA Honor Roll. Tb qualify, athletes must have achieved a 3.0 GPA during the Pall 1989 semester, be of sophomore status or above, and have a start- ing or key reserve role on the team. Baseball player and h onor roll student Monte Johnson found the program to be to the athlete ' s advantage. " It was a good connecting point to a tutor and it made people aware of the requirements and eligibility rules. " Johnson said. " It was a very posi- tive program. " However, other athletes found that they could make the honor roll without using the program. Track rurmer Deb Loescher said that her personal key to academic success was to hit the books as soon as she got home. " Even when I had morning practice, class all day and evening practice, I still made the time to study, ' ' Loescher said. ' ' In college my grades would make my career, not running. " Not only did the Student Athlete Success Pro- gram achieve positive statistics after only three years, it also provided students motivation to suc- ceed and made many realize the importance regrdSor ' -ByiraciRunyon Athlete Success Program 153 INTRAMURAL CHAMPIONS Serious Business Intramural athletes focus on championships T he players spent sev- eral hours in the gym each week trying to perfect their skills. Although they were not members of an inter- collegiate sports team, some intramural players took their action almost as seriously. The attitude was something that players said was crucial to developing a wiiming atmosphere on the field. Being serious about the games often meant the difference when playing for championship titles. " You had to practice a lot and have a good attitude to be a champion, " Sam Reinkemey- er, Powerhouse volleyball team member, said. Powerhouse finished second in intramural volleyball with losses to the champions in pool play and in the finals being the only blemishes on their record. " We practiced once or twice a week, " Reinkemeyer said. " We all knew each other and liked to play. A lot of teams went out there and didn ' t care. The teams that made it to the finals were those that gave it their all. " The VoUeyclub won the intramural indepen- dent championship with two consecutive set wins in the finals. Several members of the VoUeyclub were on the Powerhouse the year before. " We won the championship last year and decided to split up and make things a little more interesting this year, " Reinkemeyer said. " The finals were, in a sense, all ours. " For the 7-0-1 Delta Chi Nationals, winners of the intramural fraternity football title, team- work was everything. According to Jeff Gar- rett, they didn ' t have the talent they normally did, but they worked exceptionally well as a unit. ' ' A lot of the other teams had great individu- als, but didn ' t play well as a team, " Garrett said. " We just played well as a team and every- one was there for each other. The great in- dividuals could have a bad game and the team would fall apart. When one of our players had a bad game we always had someone else to go to. " All of the champions in intramurals were given champion T-shirts, which were worn proudly, according to Garrett. " The Delta Chi ' s won several intramural ti- tles, so there were a lot of guys with the shirts, " Garrett said. " It felt great to have them and say you were a champion. It gave you the bragging rights when you went to the bars. " According to Debby Master, captain of the Al- pha Sigma Alpha football team, being involved was the main part of intramurals. " Everyone wanted to get a championship shirt, but they were not always willing to put the time in, " Master said. " You had to be will- ing to put the time into it. We practiced once a week during the football season. This was the first time our team ever won anything. We went back to Roberta Hall and showed everyone our championship shirts. " Alpha Sigma Alpha ' s football team won the sorority division title with a perfect season, being not only un- defeated, but also unscored against. While many students took the in- tramural games seriously, they also thought it was a great deal of fun. " I took intramurals pretty serious- ly, " Reinkemeyer said. " I didn ' t take it so seriously that I didn ' t have any fun though. Havin fun was the most important part of participating. " Intramurals offered many athletes an oppor- tunity to keep their competitiveness alive ' .

Photo by Myla Brooks. he amount of time spent practicing varied from none at all to several hours per week. The different activities ranged from a golf tourna- ment to a pitch tournament and from a punt- pass-kick contest to a free throw contest. Since students, faculty and staff could enter more than one sport, the number of participants totaled approximately 7,000. " You couldn ' t compete on your own, which made the program so good, " Kory Oline said. " I liked it because it allowed me to compete in sports. " One intramural participant, Rob Ticknor, said he played intramurals to have fun, but added that there were some players who didn ' t share his attitude about the games. " A problem was that some people got too com- petitive and didn ' t have any fun, " Ticknor said. Ticknor ' s team, the Ti- tans, won the football competition and competed in basketball. " When I was a fresh- man, a friend and I found some old basketball uni- forms at a swap meet, " Ticknor said. " They said ' Titans, ' so we adopted that as our team name and have used it ever since. " Phi Mu Paula Scanlan decided to enter the punt-pass-kick contest because she eryoyed sports. It provided a break from work or class- es and she wanted to join her sorority sisters in participating. She was even more surprised to win the women ' s division with some help from the intramural officials. " They helped us and showed us the differ- ence between a punt and a kick, " Scanlan said. ' ' I really just went and didn ' t expect to win. In- tramurals were a good thing to be involved in and anyone could do them. " According to Bob Lade, coordinator of cam- pus recreation, this was the easiest of his 10 years at Northwest. He credited the lack of problems to the improved training for the officials. " We had more meetings and had the officials practice outside the classroom, " Lade said. " This helped build an interest in officiating. " Another advantage of the program was that different sports could be added or dropped from the schedule according to popularity. The golf tournament held in Tarkio during the fall was so popular another was scheduled for spring. Two other new events were a 10-point pitch tournament and f our-on-four instead of six-on- six campus recreation volleyball. " Certs and Trident sponsored the volleyball tournament, " Lade said. " The winner ad- vanced to a regional tournament at the Univer- sity of Missouri-Kansas City. " According to Lade, the only negative aspect of the program was that it was limited by both time and space. Students could only play in LamkLa Gymnasiaum at night because athletic practices had priority during the afternoon hours. The future renovations and additions to Lamkin, however, would allow for the program to expand. " When it ' s all done, we ' ll get new raquetball courts, three new basketball volleyball courts and a complete recreation system which we don ' t have now, " Lade said.

" The members learned more about what accounting really was and what to look forward to once they got a job, " President Denise Taylor said. Guest speakers highlighted biweekly meetings and helped students gain professional contacts. Speakers included Judy Weishar, accounting instruc- tor, who spoke about the Cer- tified Public Accountant exam she took in November 1989. Associate Professor of Home Economics Ann Rowlette presented " Dressed For Suc- cess " to overview appropriate interview and on-the-job attire. In the fall, members traveled to Des Moines to tour Iowa State Auditors, a govern- mental accounting agency, and McGladry and Pullen, a public accounting firm. The latter was known for hiring Northwest graduates and spoke to the Accounting Soci- ety the evening before inter- views were conducted on campus. Accounting Society offered their services twice a week to students through Voluntary Income Tax Assistance, Febru- ary through April. Students could receive free help in fill- ing out tax forms. The group also sponsored Accounting Day. Four guest speakers spoke on four areas of accounting: public, private, governmental and internal auditing. AG AMBASSADORS With the growing interest that was taken in the agricul- ture program, the Ag Ambas- sadors discovered that their importance increased. As the primary recruiting connection for the program, it was the Ag Ambassadors job to show the facilities to poten- tial agronomy students and keep their interest up. " We gave approximately seven to eight tours each throughout the year, " Vance Grossenburg said. " The stu- dents would first get the regu- lar tour of the campus and then we would take them around to see places like the Ag Mechanics Building and dairy and bull testing stations, where they would spend a mjyority of their time. This way they got information from someone who knew first- hand about the program and instructors. " Although the Ag Ambas- sadors received only a $50 scholarship for their efforts, the group eryoyed the commu- nication and chance to help in recruiting. " It wasn ' t really about the money, but rather a chance to get to help out, " Grossenburg said. " It was a lot of fun and we eryoyed doing the tours. ' ' AG BUS. ECON.

Organizations 161 AGRICULTURE COUNCIL Agriculture Council served as the governing body for all other agricultural organiza- tions. The council consisted of two delegates from each agricultural organization. " We helped all agriculture organizations come together and have a common ground to discuss any problems that might have involved agricul- ture students, " President Bar- ry Clough said. The council sponsored a hog roast in October at Beale Park. An estimated 75 people at- tended the function. " The money raised from the hog roast was used to pay for activities and to support scholarships, " Treasurer Shane Boston said. Also, the council helped plan the traditional agricul- ture banquet in April. They as- sisted in giving out various scholarships that were award- ed to students who were out- standing in the Agriculture Department. As a service project, the council worked on the Univer- sity Farm. They beautified the farm by planting shrubbery and cleaning the grounds. The Ag Council did their best in accomplishing one mjyor goal: to make people aware of how agriculture af- fects society. AGRONOMY CLUB Lending a hand in communi- ty activities, keeping up-to- date on new research and de- velopments, organizing fund- raisers and assisting in finan- cial aid were just a few goals reached by the Agronomy Club. Fund-raising was accom- plished by the selling of plant mounts and seed samples to local high school and Future Farmers of America organiza- tions which helped the Agronomy Club defer travel expenses and grant members scholarships. " We had three members at- tend the national convention in San Antonio in October, " President Bob Chop said. ' ' They were able to get infor- mation that hadn ' t even been published yet from research- ers and chemical companies on things that ranged from new fertilizers to experiments in planting. With that know- ledge, they were able to come back and relate it to us so we were as up-to-date as anybody around. " In addition to its other ac- tivities, the Agronomy Club contributed time to the com- munity in the cleaning and picking up of litter on the Country Club Road in Maryville. Overall, the Agronomy Club kept members informed, ad- vised and prepared to enter the working world of agron- omy. ABC The AUiance of Black Col- legians was an organization to promote unity among minori- ties. However, the organiza- tion was open to anyone. February was a busy month for ABC since it was Black His- tory Month. Members attended a Black Leadership Conference at the University of Nebraska- Lincobi Feb. 7-10. Later, guest speakers Carl Boyd and Con- rad Mohammed adressed the organization. The group was active during Homecoming. They construct- ed a float for the parade and conducted the " ABC Rap " during the Variety Show. The Gospel Choirs per- formed for the organization at the Gospel Extravaganza. As a service project, ABC collected canned goods and sang Christmas carols for local residents. Members organized a day of activities in observation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Activities included a breakfast at the Wesley Center and a film presentation of Dr. King ' s ' ' I Have A Dream ' ' speech and " Eyes On The Prize. " " ABC inspired me to be more concerned about North- west and the ethnic groups here, " Treva Allen said. ABC was a Student Senate- funded organization. The money they received was used for various programs and activities. ALPHA CHI Alpha Chi, which means 162 Organizations " truth " and " character, " joined the campus group of honorary organizations in November to honor academi- cally successful seniors. Only seniors in the top 10 percent of their class were eligible for membership, mak- ing 49 seniors eligible in the fall semester. President Dean Hubbard and Vice President Robert Cul- bertson, along with co- sponsors Dr. Richard Frucht and Dr. Bruce Litte, assisted at a ceremony to install the chapter and induct members. " I didn ' t like to brag about it, but it felt good being in the top of my graduating class, " Amy Hardie said. The group was dedicated to the stimulation of sound scholarship and devotion to truth, and opposed bigotry, narrowness and distinction be- tween people on any basis. Their motto was " Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. " ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA It was a new beginning for the three members of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, former- ly known as the Alpha Angels. The group catered to the black female with an above average GPA and a good standing with the University. Their goals were much the same as any sorority. They wanted to share common in- terests and build sisterhood. Alpha Kappa Alpha, along with the men of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, sponsored Black History Month activi- ties. The women also held fund-raisers on campus. " We had bake sales in ord- er to raise money to attend our regional conference, " Pamela Westbrooks said. " We also donated money to chari- ty and needy families. " Their numbers were small, but the women planned a rush to increase membership. -tSelinda Fatten sings " ABC Rap " at the Variety Show.

Organizations 163 Mil ALPHA MU GAMMA Those who excelled or had an interest in foreign lan- guages could join Alpha Mu Gamma, a foreign language honorary group. Once a month the group met to talk about future activities. They invited speakers who had traveled or had an exten- sive knowledge about a country. " Alpha Mu Gamma helped anyone who was interested in different backgrounds get to know each other, " Alicia Reyes said. A picnic was held at the be- ginning of the year to attract prospective members. The pic- luc also helped foreign and American students establish new friendships while they learned about a variety of cultures. The members of Alpha Mu Gamma were required to have a foreign language mjyor or minor. To be a full member, stu- dents had to take two classes of the same language. They were also required to receive an A in both of them. Associate members could be anyone interested in lan- guages and countries, but they couldn ' t hold club offices. Alpha Mu Gamma gave stu- dents the chance to learn about and broaden their knowledge of other cultures. ALPHA PHI ALPHA Alpha Phi Alpha, founded at Cornell University in New York in 1906, was established locally in 1988. With a focus on preparing young black men for their roles in society, the Alphas continued to carry on the tra- ditions of their prestigious alumni. These included: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Duke Ellington, Jesse Owens, Dick Gregory and Mayor David Dinkins of New York. In addition to striving for high academic standing, the eight Alphas, along with their sister chapter. Alpha Kappa Alpha, held several social events. They conducted the Ms. Black and Gold Pageant during which a young lady was chosen as the female who demonstrated the most posi- tive image for a young black woman in today ' s society. The 1990 Ms. Black and Gold was Audrey Robinson. The Alphas contributed a lot of their time to the commun- ity. " As a fund-raiser, we held a raffle, " President Dervon Nash said. " The proceeds went to the East Side Human Resource Center in St. Jo- seph. " ALPHA PSI OMEGA Alpha Psi Omega, an honor- ary society for drama stu- dents, helped support the The- ater Department by giving money they earned from per- formances off campus. They performed locally for organizations at business and society meetings. They also went as far as Southwest Iowa and Western Missouri to per- form different plays. " Although it was the ninth year we did it , we kept doing it because it improved our act- ing abilities, ' ' President Kathy Pace said. " It also gave us money to help support the Theater Department with. Plus, it was a lot of fun and it gave everyone a nice warm feeUng inside to know we did what we had to do and helped out the department. " Besides giving money to thi department. Alpha Psi Omeg also gave $500 to the Daily Fc rum Fund for needy famiUes It was something they ha( done for a number of year and hoped to continue in th future. Not only did the group act t support themselves, but the also helped give other need people a brighter Christmas b making donations. The group members plarme to keep doing what they di best: try to make life a little bi better by acting. ALPHA TAU ALPHA Promoting leadership, de veloping skills and relating in formation and experiences t( others in Agriculture Educa tion was the main goal of Al pha Tau Alpha fraternity. Seniors in ATA who went oi 164 Organizations to student teach often had the upper hand in hearing stories from past and present mem- bers which helped make the transition easier. " Once a semester we had a meal where the seniors who had been out student teaching came back to relate their ex- periences to the others, " President John Petty said. " It helped others who would be doing it in the future and gave us a chance to get together. ' ' The group ' s Homecoming house decoration titled " Elim- inate the Ichabods, " took third place. ATA also aided members financially by awarding a scholarship to its most out- standing member and provid- ed members a chance to at- tend the national convention in Kansas City. AMER. CHEM. SOCIETY Members of the American Chemical Society gained knowledge from guest speak- ers and lectures they had throughout the year. According to member John O ' Brien, the organization heard presentations from Northwest faculty members, faculty members from other universities, as well as profes- sionals in the field. " The speakers gave you some added insight on how to apply what you learned while achieving a degree, " O ' Brien said. " The principles of chemistry were placed on a broader scope than in most laboratory experiments. " Other activities included at- tending a regional meeting in Manhattan, Kan., a back-to- school picnic in the fall and other group socials. The society was geared toward professional level chemistry and the industry it- self. There were no general re- quirements.

The American Home Eco- nomics Association was not just a group of women discuss- ing better ways to cook and clean for their future hus- bands. They were a group of men and women interested in fashions, designing, gouimet cooking and merchandising. The group held a fashion show for men and women in the Spanish Den. The men ' s fashion coordinator was Vice President Chris Heil. " It was a good way to get lo- cal businesses ' merchandise on campus, " Heil said. Heil was one of only a few male students in the home economics department. " It was kind of different, " he said. " In every class I was in, I would be the only guy. " The members also held a bake sale to help pay for their officers to go to a regional con- ference and had a workshop for junior high students where they gave them a tour of the facilities and learning ses- sions. For both men and women, home economics was a grow- ing area of possible careers and the American Home Eco- nomics Association helped members get involved in their prospective field. AMER. MARKETING ASSOC. To gain practical knowledge of marketing and how it worked, the members of the American Marketing Associa- tion sponsored and promoted the delivery of video tape ren- tals on campus. In cooperation with the Movie Center, students could have tapes delivered to their doors and picked up the next day. AM A designed and post- ed flyers around campus to help get the word out to students. Secretary Michelle Schneid- er said they did a lot to im- prove AMA and because of their increased activities, the group applied for most im- proved AMA chapter. The group also had a speak- er to show them how dressing can increase their chances for a more successful career. " The speaker told us how to conduct ourselves to make the best impression on future em- ployers, " Dana Jamison said. AMA helped members pro- mote themselves by providing a channel for marketing skills and advancement. AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL The members of Amnesty International spent the year working together to make stu- dents more aware of world issues. The group held peace marches, circulated petitions, brought in guest speakers and organized a film series to work toward their international goal of freeing prisoners of conscience. Instead of electing the tradi- tional officers, Amnesty chose to have an executive board of several members and had other members head commit- tees and plan programs. During meetings, members discussed program ideas and wrote letters to governments around the world requesting fair treatment of prisoners. As a new activity. Amnesty and the Mass Communication Department co-sponsored films on campus. These were shown on Monday nights in Wells Hall Auditorium and were open to the public. " We hoped to break down communication barriers be- tween Amnesty members and other students, " Danny Eness said. " We would be able to raise awareness and interest if we could communicate bet- ter. " Members said their year had been successful in educating students about Amnesty and bringing its goals and concerns to the public ' s attention. ASSOC. FOR COMP. MACH. Seeing chances for increased membership, the Association of Computing Machinery struggled to get more students involved in the organization. ' ' W e made a special effort to get students to recognize we were here and to keep their interest, " President Jeff Eiberger said. In an attempt to attract new members, ACM had a picnic in September that was free to any freshman. They also started newslet- ters which they sent to stu- dents telling them of ACM and what it was doing. Despite the fact they ranked high in a local ACM computer programming tournament, recruitment was still lower than expected, but members planned to try even harder to increase membership. » teve Harvey and Jon Free- land carry a banner in a march for peace in front of the Bell Tower.

' ' All our activities helped us focus on Jesus, our Lord, and grow in him, " Prayer Officer Bud Gustin said. The BSU choir took on a new challenge titled " The Wonder of the Season. " The Christmas cantata offered members the opportunity to tell the Christmas story in a jubilant musical performance. " Student participation was very high, and I thought it was successful, ' ' Co-director Greg Thompson said. The BSU also held several fellowships to allow students the opportunity to learn more about each other. At the beginning of the year, a campus-wide barbecue was held to welcome back return- ing students and to allow freshmen a chance to meet BSU members. " I thought BSU was a very good organization for incom- ing freshmen, " Rhonda Richards said. " It helped me to become more outgoing. " Other fellowships included scavenger hunts, a hayride and a " Picnic in January. " " I eryoyed the picnic be- cause it was a relief after Christmas break to get togeth- er, play games and laugh to- gether, " Amy Sprague said. Mission projects were planned every month to allow -tSearcat Sweethearts, Jen- nifer Scheuyler and Carla Gold, entertain Zack Howard as they decorate football players ' lockers before the game against Pittsburg State. The Sweethearts conduct- ed several activities to show their support and school spirit. Photo by Melinda Dodge members the opportunity to give to those in need. Approximately 20 students traveled to the Nodaway Nur- sing Home to present a fash- ion show for the residents. The members also donated money to buy gifts for a needy child during the Christmas season. Students at BSU also spent time praying for others on campus and in the communi- ty. When war broke out in the Persian Gulf, they spent time It each meeting praying for the safe return of soldiers. BEARCAT STEPPERS Determination was the word ;hat described the Bearcat Steppers. The pompon squad compet- ed and did well at the NCA :amp held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The squad ivas awarded Best Home Rou- ;ine Trophy, Award of Excel- ence, Spirit Stick, and was •unner-up for Best Fight Song, qualifying the squad for na- ;ionals in Dalleis. This was the second consecutive year the squad had qualified for na- ;ional competition. At NCA camp, Tina Gaa was lamed All- American, while Kelly Harrison was nominated for AH- American honors. The AU-American was one of the highest and most prestigious awards that an individual could receive at camp. " We learned that everyone must participate and work together to reach our goal of winning nationals, " Gaa said. When not busy competing, the Steppers entertained the crowd during halftime of home football and basketball games. They also supported athletics by performing at spe- cial events. The squad traveled to Kan- sas City with the band to per- form during the halftime of a Chiefs ' game. They also per- formed with the band in Cla- rinda, Iowa, and Carrolton, Mo. The Steppers ' work and de- termination took them to na- tionals, where they made a good showing, which had been a goal for the year. BEARCAT SWEETHEARTS The Bearcat Sweethearts completed their second year on campus during what was considered a time of growth and building for the future. " It was a real learning ex- perience, " Vice President Suzie Pundmann said. " It was all still really new to us. We learned a lot and made a few changes along the way. " The Sweethearts were in- volved in the recruiting pro- cess. " We gave the recruits cam- pus tours and tried to sell them on the campus, " Pund- mann said. " We also in- troduced them to department chairmen in the areas they were interested in. " Although the Sweethearts helped the football team main- ly with recruiting, that was not their only function. They also helped boost the team ' s spirit. The men ' s lock- er room was decorated prior to home games and banners were made for the team bus to drive through before leaving for away games. With their spirit and dedica- tion, the Sweethearts played a vital role in the morale of the football team. BETA BETA BETA Beta Beta Beta, the honor- ary biological science organi- zation, had several group speakers including student Andy Kouba who spent sever- al summers as an intern at the Henry Doorley Zoo in Omaha. They also had dinners and played volleyball at Dr. Ken Minter ' s house. " This was a good way to get together and meet people in your field, " Tanya Bishop said. The group also got together to clean up various areas and did some recycling. The organization was open to honor biology students who maintained a 3.0 biology GPA, a 2.7 cumulative GPA and had also completed three biology courses. BLUE KEY Behind the planning of the annual Tower Dance were the members of the Blue Key Na- tional Honor Society. The honor society continued its tradition of planning the dance in which the Tower Queen was crowned. Membership in the society required candidates to be in- volved in other campus or- ganizations and be in the top one-third of their class. During the year. Blue Key held regu- lar meetings and had several social events. The group had Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners in addi- tion to a number of other so- cial functions. ' ' We tried to get together as often as possible to give the members a chance to relax and get to know each other, " President Mike Malone said. " Our members were busy with other organizations, so they needed time for relaxa- tion. " The spring semester was busy for the honor society as the traditional Tower Dance was planned. Blue Key spon- sored the event in which any campus organization could submit candidates for Tower Queen. According to Malone, mem- bers were very active. " We had a lot of participa- tion from our members, " he said. " They worked hard, es- pecially in planning the Tow- er Dance, which made every- thing a success. ' ' Organizations 169 BUCKHORN BOYS.

According to folklore, men who lived on the second floor of Dieterich Hall many years ago won a beer drinking con- test sponsored by Buckhorn Beer. This gave the residents of the floor their infamous name. However, stricter alcohol policies changed the Buckhorn Boys ' outlook. They focused on getting to know each other and participating in activities with other floors. " We were in football intra- murals and got together to play Softball with 7th floor Dieterich, " Joseph Niswong- er said. The men also helped foreign students make the transition to American life easier. " Easing their fears and making Japanese students on our floor feel welcome was im- portant to us, " Niswonger said. The floor collected money from the whole residence hall to buy a Christmas gift for one of their janitors. The Buckhorn Boys con- tinued to carry on a campus tradition that tied the men of second floor Dieterich Hall together. CAMPUS ACTIVITY PROG. Campus Activities Program- mers brought a new activity C- omedian Craig Higgins gets into his routine to capture his au- dience in laughter. CAft featured several comedians and acts for student entertainment in the Spanish Den. Photo by Lori Shaffer to campus this year by show- ing popular box office movies in the Bearcat Den. Admission was only $1 and " Pretty Wom- an, " " Flatliners, " " Days of Thunder, ' ' ' ' The Hunt for Red October " and " Ghost " were some of the movies shown. In October, CAPs sponsored Meatloaf and the Neverland Express concert that attracted an estimated crowd of 1,750 people. Tickets were sold to students for $5 in advance Eind $10 at the door. " I wasn ' t sure if Meatloaf would sound as good live, but the concert turned out to be great, " Denise Kastrup said. " I really liked it. " CAPs members met every Monday to plan entertainment for the students. Some other activities they set up included Star Search Grand Champion comedian Mike Saccone, comedian Suzi Landolphi and a magic and allusion perfor- mance by The Spencers, The Taylor and Mason Ventrilo- quist and Comedy Act and hypnotist Jim Wand. " Everything went really well, and the attendance to all the events was great. The mo- vies also had good turnouts, " CAPs Vice President Kim Gar- ton said. CAMPUS RECREATION To help get everyone more involved, Campus Recreation sponsored a variety of activi- ties for everyone ' s wide range of interests. A few of these activities in- cluded: flag football, volley- ball, cross country and battle of the beast. Some new programs were added, such as two-man scramble for golf, home run contest, wallyball and annual Chic three-on-three basket- ball. Approximately 7,000 par- ticipants were involved in intramurals. " Intramurals ran smoothly and we had a lot of interest from the students, " Coordina- tor Robert Lade said. " Also, sportsmanship was very good. I was very pleased. " CARDINAL KEY One of the main goals Card- inal Key had was to get more campus recognition. " We were trying to promote our organization more and just let people get to know that we were around, " Dana Nelson, president, said. " That way, we could attract the best peo- ple for members. " The 25 members were the best of their class. Member- ship for the group was based on a 3.5 GPA for sophomores and a 3.0 GPA for juniors. Na- tional rules set the member- ship number at 25 every year. " Because of the high GPA, it ' s a scholsistic organization and we tried to promote scholastics, " Nelson said. " The very rigorous require- ments make getting in an honor itself. " During the year the group sponsored various speakers, including a member, Jodi Hester, who spoke about her experiences during her sum- t ; JIAPUS ACTIVIT ' ROGRAMMERS e mer studies in Spain. They also supported their national philanthropy by col- lecting money at football games during Family Day and Homecoming and through a Bowl-a-Thon. The money they collected went toward fight- ing juvenile diabetes. CARE Members of Chemical Abuse Resource and Education strove to promote the overall quality of life by encouraging students make intelligent de- cisions about their well-being. This included improving stu- dent awareness about alcohol, drugs, and sexual responsibil- ity, as well as other wellness issues. According to CARE Presi- dent Jennifer Lewis, most of the organization ' s time was spent presenting programs to Freshman Seminar classes. These programs dealt with many issues including alcohol and drug abuse, date and ac- quaintance rape and sexual responsibility. In addition to these presen- tations, CARE sponsored sup- port groups, did highway clean-up, went on a retreat to sharpen their leadership skills and selected new CARE advocates. CARE also worked on in- creasing its membership dur- ing the year. " Our group wasn ' t large, but it was workable, " Lewis said. " Increased membership was a goal, so we worked to expand. " The self-supported group raised money by co-sponsoring Casino Night with X-106. Maryville businesses donated a number of items to be raf- fled. Students attending Casi- no Night were able to buy tick- ets and win prizes. Lewis said the three-year- old organization had great suc- cess and had become a well- known resource on campus. " We were really excited about our program and our new members, " Lewis said. " With each new member we became better equipped to make a difference. " Organizations 171 lEll CHEERLEADERS Years of hard work earned the Northwest Cheerleaders the right to compete in the Na- tional Cheerleading Associa- tion ' s competition in Dallas in January. " I thought our performance was good, but it didn ' t have enough difficulty to compete with other squads, " Bobbie Gentry said. The cheerleaders placed 17 out of 28 teams in their divi- sion, but some members didn ' t let it get them down. " I wasn ' t really disappoint- ed because of the tough com- petition, " Erik Toft said. Besides the honor of going to nationals, cheerleader Bev Owen and mascot Shawn Wake received All- American status. " I was thrilled with the honor, to say the least, " Bev Owen said. " I had won the award in 1987, but hadn ' t been able to compete for the last three years. I was ex- tremely excited to come back and win again. " The cheerleaders were in- volved in many things. They decorated the Sonic Drive-In for Homecoming, prepared a skit for the United Way celebration and made appear- ances at high schools. A junior varsity squad was also implemented into the pro- gram. They performed at the first half of volleyball and football games. " I felt we had a good sum- mer and football season, and then were preparing for na- tionals, " Owen said. " We came back in January to fin- ish getting ready for nation- als. " During the competition at nationals, the Bearcat squad performed well, but were un- able to place in the top 12 as they had in the past. " We did the best that we could, but we really underes- timated our competition, " Owen said. " But we had a good time while we there and got to see some people that we hadn ' t seen in a while. " The cheerleaders continued to liven up athletic events with their enthusiastic ap- pearances throughout the year. CHI PHI CHI Chi Phi Chi, the Northwest- founded co-ed fraternity, con- tinued to involve its members in a variety of activities and service projects. During Homecoming, Chi Phi Chi ' s candidate for queen, Andrea Bodenhausen, made it to the finals of the competi- tion. The group also entered clowns in the Homecoming parade. Over Christmas break, ap- proximately 15 members went to Minnesota on a ski trip. Ac- cording to Ronda Williston, the trip was enjoyed by everyone. " It was the first time that many people from Chi Phi Chi got to go on a major trip, ' ' Wil- liston said. " It brought us closer together. " Promoting community serv- ice was a main goal for Chi Phi Chi. Members participated in many things that taught them the satisfaction of helping others. " We cleaned up Royals Sta- dium and worked at Worlds of Fun, " President Darren Mc- Broom said. " We just did whatever they wanted us to do, like picking up the grounds or working at the booths. " A section of Highway 71 North was adopted by Chi Phi Chi for trash pick up. The members cleaned up a two- mile area 15 miles north of town four times a year. Five members of the group were in the MS 150 Bike Tour that went from Kansas City to Columbia. The members con- vinced people to pledge vari- ous sums of money for their rides and then donated their earnings to the Multiple Scle- rosis Foundation. The organization got the help of CARE and Student Senate for its Cheers program, which was designed to help keep drunken drivers off the streets. " We raised money to buy cups for the bars in town, " McBroom said. " The cups were for designated drivers and they could drink all the free pop they wanted in a night. " Besides showing an interest in community safety, the or- ganization also held activities for themselves and planned many social events. In November they rented Bode Ice Rink in St. Joseph and had an ice skating party. They also went roller-skating in Maryville. A " mystery meet " hay-ride in the fall provided laughs for the members. They invited CHEERLEADERS. Front Row; Gina Burasco, Shannon Dowden, Bobbie Gentry, Stephanie Johnson, Beverly Owen and Teresa Slezak.

A Valentine ' s Dance and a spring formal in Kansas City gave the members a chance to relax and er joy each other ' s company. Throughout the year, Chi Phi Chi continued to show its spirit with the activities it sponsored as well as growing :loser as a group through so- :ial events and service pro- ects. CHINESE STUDENTS ASSOC. The Chinese Students As- sociation spent the year aromoting a better under- standing of the Chinese cul- ;ure. Students funded programs ind trips from membership ' ees and money from the Paiwanese government.

The group also correspond- ed with their respective em- bassies and held several dinners. Generally, the group, which consisted of 40 members met informally and spent time together. Many weekends they would get together and watch different Chinese movies. CHI PHI CHI PLEDGES. Front Row: Robin Bybee, sec.; Beth Camuchael, treas.; and Taffi Baker, pres.

Organizations 173 Singingr for Dollars HE BOOMING SOUNDS OF THE BEARCAT MARCHING Band rang through the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center as they filed in to open the Music Department ' s Musical Gala. The band, as well as the other groups involved, spent many weeks preparing for the musical event. Selecting music, rehearshing, uniform fitting, tuxedo fitting, prop checking, choreographing and instrument inspecting were just a few of the many preparations necessary. Battling schedules to set up the gala, students and faculty pulled together a success- ful fund-raiser. The concert, which included 10 musical groups, continued the beneficial pattern it set three years ago. Raising close to $6,000 each year, the gala helped improve the department. " We purchased listening equipment for some of our classrooms and larger instru- ments for the band and jazz group, ' ' Byron Mitchell, University Chorale and Tbwer Choir director, said. " We made enough money to really improve the equipment in our department. ' ' Ky Hascall, the only student director at the gala, stressed the concerns he shared with some of the department ' s 100 music majors. " Without the money raised at the gala, students who didn ' t own the expensive in- struments couldn ' t have been a part of the department, " Hascall said. Showcasing all the musical ensembles, ranging from the Chordbusters Barbershop Quartet to the approximately 145-member marching band, was another advantage of the gala. " It was wonderful for the audience to see the whole music department, " Dr. Richard Weymuth, Celebration director, said. " I thought it was neat that the community could come in and see what we were about. " The community, as well as parents and others, was also able to help by becoming Music Department Pa- trons. The only requirement was a donation of at least $100. For their contribution, patrons received two reserved seats and were listed on concert programs dur- ing the year. One of the unique th ings about the gala was the vari- ety of vocal and instrumental music performed. In just one evening, the audience was treated to music rang- ing from popular to classical, spirituals to folk ballads. One small disadvantage of the gala was that it oc- curred so early in the year, according to vocal perfor- mance major Laura Gripp. " We really had to push to memorize all the new material, " Gripp said. " Although we mostly rehearsed on our own, we did have a run-through the night be- fore the performance which helped speed up stage changes. ' Howevei, he advantages of the gala far outweighed the disadvai. iges. The community was able to help the department while eryoying its talents at the same time.

The members were required to have good musical sight-reading skills and tone quality. Being a quartet, the group was one of the smallest organi- zations on campus. Chord- buster member Mark Pettit said having the opportunity to be one of the four members was an honor. " It was a neat experience to be a part of such a distin- guished group, " Pettit said. ' ' Only four people were select- ed and being one of them was great. " The group spent countless hours preparing for upcoming events. They performed not only for the University, but also for various organizations throughout the Northwest Missouri area. They also toured with the Tower Choir and performed at senior recitals. Performances included the Renaissance Fes- tival in Kansas City, the Homecoming Variety Show and the University ' s aimual Yuletide Feaste. " Chordbusters was a very time-consuming organiza- tion, " Rick Henkel said. " But once you performed and saw the audience ' s reaction, it was all worth it. " Henkel considered being a Chordbuster an honor because of the respect and recognition they earned on campus and in the community. CHRIST ' S WAY INN Christ ' s Way Inn, a non- denominational Christian or- ganization, met weekly for Bi- ble study, fellowship, sharing and prayer, in an effort to keep the word of God alive on campus. Attendance at Christ ' s Way Inn doubled after the campus house moved to College Avenue, where it was more visible and accessible to students. According to one member, being a part of Christ ' s Way Inn built friendships and stro nger bonds with the Lord. " Sometimes in college it ' s easy to become unattached to what you believe in, " Stephanie Damm said. " I was happy to have the opportuni- ty to keep in touch with my faith. " A January ski trip to Mir nesota topped off Christma break for some of the sti: dents, and an annual banque for area widows was also hel by the organization in Febri ary. Sunday night prayer an supper meetings were popula among the members, as we as informal Friday night mee ings to watch movies an socialize.

CIRCLE K Under the proposition that eople should promote and nprove their community, Cir- e K worked toward the enefit of Maryville and the niversity. " Circle K grew a great deal I size, " Vice President Greg assett said. " Because of this e were able to have a great- r positive impact on the immunity. " As an orgaruzation affiliated ith Kiwanis, Circle K ' s mem- ership increased. Members beUeved that in- leased membership was due ) better exposure through Ivertisements. With the effort of all mem- ers, Circle K accomplished iveral goals. They adopted a imily for Christmas, went hristmas caroling and raked laves for an elderly lady who as unable to do it herself. " It was really good to help at others, especially during hristmas, " Scott Adams said. That is the idea of Christmas, elping others who might be iss fortunate than yourself. " To raise money, the group orked concessions at all of e home football games and anducted a car wash. They Iso sold Halloween Iivsurance nd donated the proceeds to e nursing homes. " We were happy and for- mate to have been able to be f service to the community, ' ' assett said. Helping others was the main oal of Circle K. By doing this, lembers often helped them- slves by becoming better itizens. ' ' To help others was always nportant, " Bassettsaid. " For s, it wasn ' t only important, ut it was also fun. " COMPUTER MGMT. SOCIETY The Computer Management ociety was an organization hich promoted the under- standing of data processing. During Sneak Preview ' 90, when high school students came to learn about the cam- pus, the 20-member group worked to make the students aware of the Computer Management Systems msyor. " The number of computer majors had been at a mini- mum, " Shelly Freeman said. " We thought making an ap- pearance at Sneak Preview would be helpful to our department. " The group also toured LMP Steel of Maryville which was installing a new main frame computer. They learned about problems and difficulties with the system and what the com- pany planned to do about it. " We tried to do something current and trendy, " Presi- dent Shelly Freeman said. " If there was something hot in computers, we tried to find out about it. " The group toured addition- al Maryville businesses during the year to increase their knowledge of the latest in computer technology. One such business was Maryville Forge, which had added robot- ics to their assembly line. CHORDBUSTERS. Mark Pettit, Rick Henkel, Kyle Gordon and Jeff Gillahan. CHRIST ' S WAY INN.

Organizations 177 iim DAIRY JUDGING TEAM The Dairy Judging team was a small but dedicated group. They worked hard practic- ing for contests and hoped to keep up the team ' s high na- tional rating. They strove to do their best at contests be- cause each member could only compete in three contests. Also, only four members from a school could compete in the same contest, and only three of the four scores were used. At one contest in Ft. Worth, Texas, they received second. " We did great nationally, " Tricia Dalbey said. " But we only had two members of our base team left so we had a lot of work to do. " Dalbey also hoped the team would be improving within certain breeds and in their oral justification. In spring, they held a work- shop for area high schools. They also prepared for the World Dairy Exposition in Madison, Wis. " We thought we would do well at the World Dairy Expo- sition because we had beaten most of the winning teams be- fore, " Dalbey said. DELTA PSI KAPPA Staying active in both cam- pus and community activities was one of the accomplish- ments of Delta Psi Kappa, an honorary organization for physical education majors. Students in Delta Psi Kappa were required to maintain a 2.5 cumulative grade point average as well as have a 3.0 in physical education classes. The rewards of the organiza- tion, though, helped benefit students beyond just member- ship. " It was a good organization to get in, not only because of the fact that it was an honor- ary fraternity, but also be- cause you got to gain knowledge and experience, " adviser Dr. Jeff Ferguson said. " It always looked good to an employer when you could say you were a member and active in your field. " Delta Psi Kappa members aided in tutoring throughout the year. They also volun- teered at the Homecoming barbecue and aided the Kin- der Kats program. DELTA TAU ALPHA There may not have been such a thing as a free meal, but for the lucky winner of Delta Tau Alpha ' s raffle, $1 could buy dinner. The honorary agriculture club held the raffle to raise money for its organizational scholarship. The club also held an annu- al dinner to recognize its out- standing members. ' ' We weren ' t a real big chap- ter, but it gave us a chance to belong to an organization and get to know new individuals, ' ' Bill Brooks said. ' ' It also let us have a wider forum of ideas and concepts which aided in gaining knowledge in the field of agriculture. " DIETERICH HALL COUNCIL Boredom was definitely not something the men of Dieter- ich Hall could complain about. " We tried to be the best hall on campus, " President Mi- chael Bryant said. " We had big plans and we tried to get them fuUfiUed. " The residents sought to im- prove the activities available in their hall. They purchased a pool table, foosball table and air-hockey table. In addition, every floor lounge in the hall received a television and mi- crowave, so students didn ' t have to leave their floor and go to the hall lounge if they wanted to snack in front of the television. Shawn Clark, who lived on the 7th floor, thought having a microwave on his floor was very convenient. " By the time you got your food up to 7th floor, it would be cold, " Clark said. " With a microwave in the floor lounge, you didn ' t have to go all the way downstairs. " TTie haU also participated in a dating game with Millikan and a dance with Franken to encourage social interaction with other halls. ENGLISH HONOR SOCIETY Holding a book sale, giving out the Teacher of the Year award in the spring and hold- ing receptions for visiting speakers were just a few of the activities that kept Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society, busy. The group ' s major goals were to provide a group for 178 Organizations English msyors where they could work together to get to know the faculty better and exchange ideas. In January they held an in- formal social for members and English faculty at the Alumni House. " Our plans include encour- aging members to write more, " President Connie Ma- gee said, " I ' d especially like them to send things to our na- tional newsletter, ' The Rec- tangle ' . " The group had an unusually large membership and hoped to continue by having more so- cial programs to keep those members active. Xl nglish Honor Society mem- sers Robyn Brinks and Antoinette jfaham socialize with English arofessors Dr. Leland May and Dr. Vlichael Allen. The reception was planned so that members of the px)up could become better ac- quainted and more comfortable rvith the department ' s professors. ' ' hoto by Tbdd Weddle DAIRY JUDGING.

Organizations 179 FARRIER SCIENCE CLUB The Farrier Science Club may have been small in num- bers, but those students who were involved were not hors- ing around. The organization worked hard toward the development of skills in horse management, horseshoeing and the ad- vancement of the horse indus- try. The group planned trips to horse shows and farrier com- petitions and participated in group socials throughout the year to enhance these skills. According to Ed Quillen, in- volvement in the organization could be easily traced to a love of horses. " In a group as specialized as this, it was easy to see why people got involved, " he said. " We all loved horses and this common bond brought us together. " President Nate Allen said one of the more exciting things the group did was at- tend and participate in the Ail- American Quarter Horse Con- gress in Columbus, Ohio, in the fall. Four members took part in judging the horses. Also in the fall they traveled to Kansas City for the Ameri- can Royal competition. Although membership was smaller than many campus or- ganizations, the group had grown in size. " Our membership was up this year and we had a lot of fun, " Allen said. " However, our club was being reor- ganized. Most of our members had joined the new Rodeo Club which had just been started. " FARSIDE HOUSE They lived on the Farside. They v ere the men of third- floor Dieterich Hall and they kept busy during the year with floor and hall activities. Secret Spooks during Hal- loween and Secret Santas at Christmas were just a couple of activities the men had with their sister floor. Center 4th Hudson Hall. One new and different thing they did this year was partici- pate in an etiquette dinner in which they were taught proper dining manners by a member of the ARA staff. They also took part in in- tramurals and competed against other floors in such things as volleyball. One thing that separated the Farside House from other floors was an award they gave for " Assof the Week. " " A person could nominate someone for something stupid they did, " Vice President By- ron Tinder said. " Then we voted and posted the winner ' s name in the bathroom. " FCA The Fellowship of Christian Athletes stressed Christian fel- lowship over athletics. ' ' It wasn ' t just for athletes, ' ' President Hope Droegemuel- ler said. " It was more like the Fellowship of Christian Peo- ple. " The group held weekly meetings to introduce new members and share their feel- ings and ideas. They prayed CJJassie Peel performs with the Flag Corps to the Batman theme song. New Flag Corps insructor Brian Tenclinger choreographed the flag show for Rimily Day. Pho- to by Scott Jenson for solutions to problems and people who they felt needed extra help. The biggest event for the group was a hayride to the University Farm where a bon- fire was held. FINANCIAL MNGT. ASSOC. Members of the Financial Management Association spent a lot of time learning about many different financial careers. 180 Organizations " We hoped to introduce people to better aspects of finance and to also help them explore career opportunities available, " President Rebecca Rice said. Many of the group activites gave the members a chance to gain some very useful knowledge. Larry Stoll, vice president of finance for the St. Joseph Light and Power Co., spoke to them in the fall about careers about responsibities of jobs pertaining to finance. In addition to the invited speaker, the group toured the Federal Reserve Bank and Farmland Industries in Kansas City about those jobs. " Financial Management As- sociation helped me to reali ze there were more professional opportunities out there, " Rice said. Aside from the learning ac- tivities, the group also had several get-togethers includ- ing an ice cream party and a Christmas party. FLAG CORPS Performing at a variety of events, the Northwest Flag Corps provided entertainment for many. Besides appearing at home football games, the Flag Corps showed off their talents with halftime exhibition shows in CarroUton, Mo., and in Clarin- da, Iowa. The Flag Corps enthralled spectators at the Homecoming parade and during the Gala Benefit Concert, which was held by the Music Department to raise money for equipment. In November, they were asked to go to Chiefs ' stadium to perform at a Kansas City Chiefs ' football game. According to Bobbi Wassam, the corps improved diuing the course of the semester, as a result of their coach ' s efforts. " We were 100 percent bet- ter and a lot of it had to do with Brian Tenclinger, " Was- sam said. " He gave us some new ideas and inventive techniques. " After practice, the group often relaxed by getting to- gether at someone ' s house. FARRIER SCIENCE CLUB.

Organizations 181 FmNG BEARCATS The Flying Bearcats took to the skies this year, logging in many flight hours. " TTie group probably put in 100 flying hours, which was a lot, " sponsor Dr. Bruce Par- melee said. Although the members didn ' t actually fly together, they logged as many hours as they could during the week. For those members enrolled in the ground school class, a minimum of 10 hours was re- quired by the end of the semester. T.J. Jenkins wanted to dis- pell the myth that the Flying Bearcats was just for pilots. " Anyone could come that was interested in aviation, " Jenkins said. " You didn ' t have to have a pilot ' s license to participate. " According to President Greg Turner, the group hoped to achieve two goals, recruit new members and attend a fly-in. " I hoped we could make the trip to Oshkosh, Wise. , for the fly-in because all kinds of planes, including the world ' s latest, would be there, " Turn- er said. The group concentrated on improving flying skills and studying the advantages and disadvantages of different airplanes. FRANKEN HALL COUNCIL Football, volleyball, painting and dancing were just some of the activities sponsored by Franken Hall Council. Hall Council strove to get their residents involved in hall activities, especially athletic events. They sold tickets to Kansas City Chiefs ' football games and had football pools. They also had three-on-three basketball games. They supported the yellow- ribbon ceremony by giving each resident a ribbon to en- courage support for the sol- diers overseas. The residence hall also par- ticipated in Students Helping Students, an organization that helped handicapped high school students. ' ' We planned to to take the kids on a trip to Chicago, " Jeanee Kilgor said. " The cost would be about $3,000. Our pitch was ' give up a soda for a kid ' because if everyone gave 50 cents, we ' d have enough money to go. " The hall council used its money for new weight-room equipment and lounge items. " We purchased a Soloflex and equipment from Millikan Hall, " Vice-President Rob Jako said. " The council want- ed to give the residents a var- iety of equipment. " GAMMA THETA UPSILON Because of an increased in- terest among geography stu- dents. Gamma Theta Upsilon was reactivated and was proceeding in a positive direction. The primary event for Gam- ma Theta Upsilon was Geogra- phy Awareness Week, in which many speakers ad- dressed the group. One of the speakers was Robert McCall, who spoke on political situations such as the Persian Gulf crisis. Throughout the week, trivia questions were asked around campus and on KDLX pertain- ing to different countries. Prizes were then awarded in association to which country the answer was from. For ex- ample, if a question pertained to Mexico, a coupon from Taco John ' s would be the winner ' s prize. ' ' Our organization was pret- ty new, " President Shannon Jipp said. " We were just build- ing it and I felt it was going in a good direction. " GEO CLUB According to President Paul Hester, the main objective of the Geography Geology club was " to enhance people ' s awareness of the world around them and the fields and studies of geography and geology. " They held a two-day book sale which netted $300. It con- sisted of books that related to the fields of geography and ge- ology as well as National Geo- graphic magazines. These items were donated by the department and various instructors. With the money raised from the sale, the group funded a trip to Viburnum, Mo., and took a tour of a lead mine. A member ' s father, who was a foreman at the mine, visited on Family Day and offered to take them on a tour. Ten members and two faculty members accepted. They were also given the op- portunity to see silver mines and many other attractions. With approximately 25 members, Hester said that even though membership didn ' t increase substantially, there was much more interest in the group.

The group had problems with their leadership and or- ganization and worked to im- prove it. They also wanted to revise their rules and policies. " We started off with some new ideas, " Vice President Jill Gibson said. HPERD held their annual Homecoming barbecue and tailgate party before the foot- ball game. Rainy weather caused the tailgate party to be held inside Lamkin Gym. " We had a pretty good time doing the tailgate party, " Secretary Jill Owens said. " We had to cook on the side- walk in front of Lamkin and we served food inside. " Another big event for HPERD was the state conven- tion to which they sent nine members to represent their chapter. Although the group initially experienced some problems with leadership, they were able to overcome them and put together a productive year. HORTICULTURE CLUB Adopt-a-Bed, an event in which flower beds were sold to different organizations, was just one of the activities that the Horticulture Club spon- sored on campus this year. The organizations that par- ticipated in the Adopt-a-Bed contest could design their own flower bed or choose a plan designed by the Horticulture Club and Environmental Serv- ices. The group was then responsible to plant and care for the flower bed throughout the growing season. Winning organizations re- ceived money and a plaque for their efforts. Other activities sponsored by the Horticulture Club were two plant sales held in the spring and fall and a carnation sale for Valentine ' s Day. Plants used in the sales were grown by the members of the group. Some different plants grown and sold were gerani- ums, pencil cactus and jade plants. The group went on a field trip in the fall to Earl May ' s in Kansas City to look at differ- ent plants that were in the store. ' ' At our meetings we gener- ally discussed field trips, plant sales and other activities, " X evin Kellig hoes weeds out of a flower bed in front of Cold- en Hall. The Horticulture Club drew up plans for several flower beds across campus. Photo by Scott Jenson President Vickie Lefevere said. " We learned a lot about how to grow and propagate plants, which is cutting stems and leaves to grow more plants. " The group welcomed any- one who liked plants and wanted to know more about them to join. HUDSON HALL COUNCIL Hudson Hall Council was noted by other halls and the Residence Hall Association for having $21,000 in their Hall Improvement Fund. The money was used to bet- ter hall equipment and facili- ties. Hall Council purchased a new microwave and carpet for the entry way. They also had the lounge furniture reuphol- stered, bought new pool equipment and installed a volleyball court. They also worked to re- model the recreation room in the basement into a second lounge. Hudson put on various pro- grams within the hall. They started off the year with a Homecoming decorating con- test and a speaker on date rape. In October, trick-or-treaters were invited into the hall. The council also held a raffle for a $30 gift certificate from JL ip-Pak Chan talks to Presi- dent Dean Hubbard about how to cook Chinese food. During the fall semester, Hubbard invited the in- ternational students to his house for diimer. Photo by Scott Jenson Maurice ' s and purchased a Christmas tree for a decorat- ing party. Finals week for the ladies of Hudson was made easier due to " pick-me-up " snacks pro- vided by the hall residents ev- ery night. INDUSTRIAL TECH. CLUB The Industrial Technology Club toured a number of production plants this year. The group went to Kansas City to tour the Western Auto Design Headquarters and the Burns and McDonnell plant. They also toured Maryville Forge to see how local plants operated. The tours gave club mem- bers a chance to meet possible employers. " The tours gave us a first- hand look at what jobs were available in our field and what would be expected of us, " President Jim Roe said. The group planned more tours in the future in order to keep up with the industry. ISO Through receptions for new students and sponsored activi- ties, the International Stu- dents Organization provided social and informational op- portunities for its members and the university. Cultural Day was presented around the Bell Tower in the fall. It gave all students a chance to gather together and learn from other cultures. ISO represented members from cultures that had never been included before, such as France, Spain and Haiti. Sponsoring the 22nd aimual banquet in honor of interna- tional students, the First Bap- tist Church welcomed the members into the community. " The church community wanted to share their Thanks- giving with us and learn from us, " Ari Espano said. " The event was very successful. " The group also planned to meet with other ISO chapters from neighboring universities to discuss a variety of ways to bring cultures together. Organizations 185 KALEIDOSCOPE PEACE To aid its members in pursu- ing a more livable habitat, Kaleidoscope Peace provided several opportunities for en- vironmental improvement. Although members were concerned with pollution, animal cruelty and ozone lay- er depletion, most emphasis stayed within the community. By picking up litter along two stretches of highway, the group stressed involvement. " By participating in the Adopt-a-Highway program, we did our part in helping bet- ter the community, " Jody Holland said. Kaleidoscope Peace took a stand against nuclear arms by p ublicly supporting a play ti- tled " N-9 " . The play, written by a former member of the group, opposed the nuclear missile silo N-9 located east of Kansas City. " I cared what happened, " Holland said. " I didn ' t want to sit passively by and watch the world go down the tubes. " The group also sponsored a postcard-making contest. They required participating organi- zations to decorate a bedsheet with an environmental theme. All submitted sheets were then to be aerially pho- tographed and made into post- cards and sold. However, due to low participation the project was cancelled. To inform its members dur- ing the Persian Gulf Crisis, Kaleidoscope Peace invited a Kuwaiti student to speak about the problems. ' ' I thought it was important to inform people so they were not ignorant about the issue, ' ' Holland said. KAPPA DELTA PI The education honor socie- ty, Kappa Delta Pi, promoted excellence in learning and recognized outstanding contri- butions to education. According to Stacey Quigley, the group catered to students pursuing education as a career and gave them an opportunity to share ideas. " 1 thought the group was important for those who wanted to teach, " she said. " It gave us a chance to meet and exchange ideas with others with the same goals and career plans. " Throughout the year. Kappa Delta Pi members kept abreast of career opportunities and new teaching methods. The group had regular meet- ings and celebrated the hoU- day season with a Christmas party at the home of their ad- viser. Dr. Betty Bush. KAPPA OMICRON NU The beginning of the year brought change for the home economics honor society. Kappa Omicron Phi, a na- tional home economics socie- ty chapter already on campus, merged with Omicron Nu, a similar national organization. The result was an organization that recognized scholarship and professionalism in home economics. Money from selling candy and other items was used to bring speakers to campus. The group also celebrated Found- er ' s Day in the fall. The year ' s theme, " Ethics in the Workplace, " was the ba- sis for speakers and activities. The honor society initiated new members in the fall and spring and, according to Cathy Pogue, had a positive year. " We were happy with the year, " she said. " The activi- ties we had were successful and our new members really got involved. " KDLX University radio station KDLX brought together more than 200 students, faculty and staff on the eve of Jan. 15, the United Nation ' s deadline for Iraq to withdraw from Ku- wait. A giant yellow ribbon draped around the Bell Tow- er showed support for those in the Middle East. Wesley Center minister Don Ehlers sang his message to those serving their country: ' ' Bring them home, keep them safe; please bring them home. " Two other major events sponsored by KDLX were X-106 Week Part 2 in April and X-106 Week in November. The spring event featured the Spring Thaw to help celebrate the station ' s 30th anniversary. The annual Fall Freeze kick- ed off X-106 Week with mus- ic under the Bell Tower and free hot dogs and soda. KALEIDOSCOPE PEACE.

Organizations 187 nil KIDS As a big brother big sister or- ganization, Koncerned In- dividuals Dedicated to Stu- dents members served as role models for children who par- ticipated in the HeadStart pro- gram or who attended Horace Marm. KIDS gave the children an opportunity to spend time with someone besides their parents. " About twice a week, each member was to contact their little brother or sister and take them to supper, to the park, to watch movies or to draw pic- tures, " President Jennifer Ticknor said. Although members were from different majors, educa- tion mggors seemed to receive the most benefit. " I had my little sister two years and I er joyed seeing the changes she went through, " Ticknor said. " As an educa- tion mjyor, I felt that it helped me learn about children. " Treasurer Jacqueline Thomp- son benefitted in another way. " Having a little brother to spend time with helped me feel closer to home, " she said. " One day we went Christmas shopping and then we watched a movie and ate popcorn. " At meetings, KIDS hosted lectures about childrens ' psy- chological and emotional needs and discussed problems members might have had with their little brother or sister. KXCV Northwest ' s own 100,000- watt National Public Radio af- filiate, KXCV, provided its listeners with the best in pub- lic radio while giving broad- casting students an opportuni- ty to work with radio pro- fessionals. KXCV 90.5 FM was operat- ed by a combined staff of pro- fessionals and students. The station was the only NPR af- filiate in Northwest Missouri. During the year, the station kept busy with its day-to-day operation in addition to spon- soring events, developing fund raisers and recording and airing a number of concerts from the Northwest Music Department. According to News Director John McGuire, KXCV had a successful year and kept busy, especially during the first se- mester. " The fall was really busy, specifically the month of November, " he said. " We had a fimd raiser, a debate and the election during that month. It was pretty hectic, but we had great success. " In the faU, KXCV launched their five-day on-air fund rais- er. This " 90 Plus Campaign " was responsible for raising $10,000 for the station. The money came from donations made by listeners and was used to pay for programming costs. During election time in the fall, KXCV sponsored a Con- gressional debate between Missouri politicians Tom Cole- man and Bob McClure. The de- bate was aired live from cam- pus. Broadcasting students also took part in KXCV ' s election night coverage, airing results from political races in Missou- ri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. ' ' I thought it was fantastic, ' ' Chris Hagan said. " It was a madhouse around the station that night. There couldn ' t have been a better learning experience. " McGuire said the year was very productive for KXCV and its student staff. " We tried to provide great public radio while giving the students a chance to enhance their broadcasting skills and work in a professsional at- mosphere, " he said. LUTHERAN CAMPUS CENTER Helping Christians learn more about Christ, the Lutheran Campus Center pro- vided a source of fellowship for students. The center planned weekly devotions and Bible studies as well as having activities on weekends such as bowling and game and movie nights. On Sunday evenings, LCC held dollar suppers to help out campus students when food services were closed. Seven people involved in the group attended the Luthe- ran Student Fellowship Con- ference, which was a regional event. The conference was held for two days at Camp Wartburg in Illinois. ' ' The purpose of the confer- ence was for us to meet peo- ple from other LCC campus groups in our area, ' ' Roderick Ryll said. ' ' It gave us a chance to share our ideas with each other. " They also helped serve the United Way chili supper. Through fellowship and other activites that pulled them together, LCC continued to grow and show a positive attitude. M-CLUB Made up of letter-winners from all athletic teams, M- Club was an organization that tried to meet its members ' needs and expectations. " M-Club was a vehicle be- tween teams and the adminis- tration, " Colleen White said. By setting up athletic pro- motions, the group attempted to reach the fans. They tried to do this by asking for their opinions. " Getting to know the people was important to show that we appreciated and respected them for supporting us, then we turned that respect into friendship, " White said. M-Club also sponsored an awards banquet once a sem- ester. At these ceremonies, letters and special recognition awards were passed out. MILLIKAN HALL COUNCIL Excellent participation was the primary ingredient in a successful and productive year for Millikan Hall Council. According to hall council President Amy Dunekacke, many goals were met due to increased enthusiasm from hall residents. " Our programs and activi- ties were successful because the women really got involv- ed, " she said. " Everyone work- ed hard and had a lot of fun. ' ' During the year, Millikan Hall remodeled its weight room and began working on getting new weight equip- ment. An aerobics room was 188 Org anizations IDl aren Mucky spots a par- ticipant in the KIDS Christmas Carnival. Children were enter- tained by gymnastic obstacles, games and a visit from Santa Glaus.

Other plans were to reno- i ate the kitchen area locat- ed in the basement, as well as to purchase a new stove and microwave and install cabi- nets and a sink. Also in the planning was a study area which would be carpeted and furnished. Dunekacke said these projects would be handled by committees that had been formed to make the hall more comfortable for residents. " Our hall committees were outstanding, " she said. " They organized programs, activities and projects which helped us receive Hall of the Month honors during the year. " Enthusiasm and increased participation seemed to be the foundation for Millikan Hall Council ' s successful year. " Our council was well or- ganized this year, " Dunekacke said. " Everybody was able to communicate and get things done. We were good friends and that made it easy to be ef- ficient and also have fun. " KIDS.

The lecture was part of Black History Month and was sponsored by Campus Activity Pro- grammers. Photo by Stacy Bauter 190 Black History Sense of NE MUST KNOW WHERE HE HAS COME FROM IN OR- der to progress. This idea was the foundation for the nationally-recognized Black His- tory Month. During February, the efforts and contributions to society made by great black figures were acknowledged. Through films and lectures, this month aimed to inspire blacks to continue to make a notable impact on society. " Black people as a whole were becoming more aware of themselves and the posi- tive roles they played in society, " Tiana Conway said. Numerous events to celebrate Black History Month were planned by Ben Birchfield, assistant dean of students, and the members of Alliance of Black Collegians. They were funded by ABC, Culture of Quality program. Campus Activity Programmers and Stu- dent Senate. The first event during Black History Month was " The Meeting, " a fictitious talk be- tween Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. written by Jeff Stetson. The play was presented in the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center and performed by Synapse Productions. Thomas Grimes portrayed Malcolm X and Eddie L. Murphy III played Dr. King. They depicted what would have happened if the two men had actually met and discussed their ideas for freedom. " The [play] was dynamic in that it presented a very accurate representation of two of the many attributing minds within our black heritage, " Conway said. " Of all the performances witnessed at Northwest, this one was, for me, the most significant be- cause it gave way to a more precise testimonial to the black culture. " Brother-in-law to Nelson Mandela and former South African journalist, Dumisani Kumalo, lectured on the struggle for freedom in South Africa. Kumalo was an authority on divestment and economic sanctions. He spoke to students about what it was like to live under apartheid. " He asked a lot of questions that made us think about what it would be like to live under apartheid and how things might have been different if Mandela hadn ' t been freed, " Audrey Robinson said. For the first time in Northwest ' s history, there was a Multi-cultural Talent Show, featuring Jen ' s Dance Group Inc. from Albany, Mo. They performed jazz and tap dances during intermission. The talent show was a tribute to a variety of black celebrities who had made great impacts on black culture. Some of the honored celebrities were Aretha Franklin, Wilma Rudolph, Mar- tin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, Jackie Robinson, Joe Lewis, Mary McLeod Bethune, Michael Jackson, Langston Hughes, Alex Haley, Mahalia Jackson and Malcolm X. The talent show was sponsored by ABC. The group hoped to convey a message to the audience about black history, how they felt to be black and how their cul- ture affected their lives. Activities during Black History Month helped to uni- fy black students and instill in them a sense of pride.

There was no commit ment to enlist. Men and women who wen a part of the group had al ready talcen Military Science and n. The only way to join MI ni without these prerequisite was to have completed basii training in one of the arme( forces. According to Dale Thimesch the group participated in th( Survival, Escape and Evasioi weekends, helping with in struction of the class as well a training themselves for sum mer camps. " The weekend was full o opportunities to learn, ' Thimesch said. " We learne many new and valuabl( leadership skills and tech niques which was beneficia for preparing us for our ad vanced camp. " In addition to these week ends, many MS Ills attendee Camp Lightning Strike at For Leonard Wood, Mo. This wa a 72 -hour camp of physica training, night maneuvers marches and other activities Ben Sunds said membershi] in MS Ills helped him in hi overall growth in the mihtary " I learned useful leadershi] principles in addition to mill tary customs and courtesies, ' he said. He added that the MS m lev el taught him more about com misioned officer skills, dril formations and marching. MS IV MS IV changed staff posi tions this year in order to givt its members more responsibil ities. Completion of an ad vanced training camp as wel IS the MS III level of the pro- jram were usually needed to )e a part of MS IV. " MS IV prepared students or being future officers, eserves or active duty, " Mar- a Havens said. They spent class time and ab time together and also vorked out three times a veek. They worked out on tlonday, Wednesday and Fri- lay mornings. During the summer, many nembers attended numerous raining camps. One camp, at- ended by Anita Puche, was in advanced camp at Fort liley, Kan. The camp lasted ix weeks and consisted of lard-core training. " It was a little bit better han basic training, but not hat much, " Puche said. MS IV held a rapelling iemonstration down Golden lall on Family Day and had an !nd of the year awards ;eremony in May. MUSIC EDUCATORS The Music Educators Na- ional Conference was a group )f students who were looking o improve their musical ta- ents and learn to become bet- er music educators. In February, MENC spon- iored a music concert for the unior high schools from a our-state area. The contest )rovided an opportunity for unior high students to find )ut what went on at high ichool music contests. " There were solo and en- lemble competitions, " Byron rinder said. ' ' It was a great ex- )erience for future music edu- ;ators to work with students. " MENC also held education- il programs for its members. A ew of the programs that nade the biggest impressions )n members were intentional caching, measuring student iptitude and how to be a hero n the classroom. " I liked intentional teaching he best, " Amy Sommers said. ' People tended to think that nusic was just for fun, but it lad a purpose. It connected lumanity; every country had nusic. " Members also eryoyed these programs because they felt they could hear about differ- ent ideas and viewpoints. " Our main goal was always to further ourselves and pre- pare ourselves to be educa- tors, " Bill Dodd said. MENC members attended the Music Educator ' s Conven- tion at Ft. Osage. It was a state competition where seminars were held and groups per- formed. ' ' The convention stirred in- terest, " Dodd said. " It helped us to be motivated and en- thusiastic about becoming teachers. " At the convention, several members were elected to hold state offices. NAT ' L ART ED. ASSOC. Attending conventions was a major benefit to members of the National Art Education Association. In the fall, seven members went to the national conven- tion in Kansas City. They at- tended workshops and meet- ings where they were given in- formation in regards to art in- struction and various teaching methods. ' ' The convention opened me up to other options in the art field other than teaching and gave me new ideas for teach- ing as well, ' ' Ann English said. Many members thought that just being in an organization with other art education majors was helpful. " Working together and sharing ideas helped each per- son increase their knowledge and ideas on art education, " Ann Simon said. Another advantage of the association was getting to meet art education teachers and getting advice from them. Members of the club were also eligible for national member- ship which allowed them to receive discounts on literature that related to their prospec- tive careers. The group continued to make T-shirts and buttons which they sold to residence halls, campus associations as well as to off-campus organi- zations. This was done every year for events such as Fami- ly Day and for anything else groups wanted them for. Profits went toward the pur- chase of a new T-shirt press. Spending the year gathering valuable information and sharing ideas helped the Na- tional Art Education Associa- tion prepare for the future. NAT ' L RESIDENCE HALL HON. In order to recognize stu- dents who lived in the resi- dence halls and who contri- buted more than their share to hall council and residential life as a whole.

To become a member of the group, students filled out an application which was re- viewed by a membership com- mittee. Another requirement for membership was that the applicant lived on campus. " I decided to join because residential life has so much to offer students, " Ann Foster said. " We were made up of people who were trying to make a more positive name for being a part of residential life. " After only one semester. Na- tional Residents Hall Honorary decided to go inactive because all the members were busy with other clubs and commit- ments. " We didn ' t have very many members, " Joseph Niswonger said. " So it was hard to have any kind of programs or activi- ties. " The organization ' s main fo- cus was to spread promotion of floor activities and en- courage residents to partici- pate in all that residential life had to offer. Orgranizations 193 lEIil NEWMAN CENTER With the help of new direc- tor Mike Maher, the Newman Center spent the year working toward new goals and having fun together. Maher was from Kansas City and was hired in August. Some of his goals for the Newman Center included growth, experience, more community participation and preparing students to become lay ministers in the Catholic Church. During October, the group sponsored a food drive and a chili supper with the Wesley Center. The Newman Center also had a hayride and retreats at their house. They took a shopping trip to Kansas City in December to do Christmas shopping. They also held their annual Christmas dinner at which they recog- nized people who helped them during the past semester. During the spring, a " Pray- er for Peace " was held every Monday through Friday. Mem- bers prayed for a peaceful resolution and for the safe return of soldiers stationed in the Persian Gulf. Heidi Wittrock said that Newman Center members were lucky to have a place like it to go to. " The idea that students could go to the house and feel a sense of community with one another was really won- derful, " Wittrock said. " I thought we had a very productive year at the New- man Center. Hopefully in the future we could get more peo- ple involved. " NORTH COMPLEX Organization and increased involvement were the keys to North Complex Hall Council ' s success during the year, ac- cording to Vice President Joe Desmond. " Our council was more ex- cited and motivated than it had been in the past, " Des- mond said. " We were trying to make North Complex a more appealing hall by getting or- ganized and making changes. " Some of the changes includ- ed renovating the kitchen, TV room and game room in the basement of the hall. In addition to these changes, the hall kept busy with activi- ties. The council co-sponsored a Health Awareness Week with South Complex. Some of the events included a " Tango under the Tower " dance, pro- grams and seminars on health- related issues and a health run walk. Secretary Kelly Zimmerman said Health Awareness Week didn ' t draw the participation that was expected, but it was something to build on. " The involvement during the week wasn ' t what we had hoped, " Zimmerman said. " But it was a foundation for an activity we may have con- tinued in the future. " The group also participated in Homecoming activities and placed fourth in the house dec competition. During the Christmas season the hall held a decorating con- test. The winner of the " Deck the Halls " competition re- ceived $100. They also parti- cipated in a canned food drive with canned goods and a cash donation going to the Food Pantry. Desmond said the hall had a successful year. " We got a lot of people in- volved, " he said. " Our coun- cil was very organized.

Photo by Scott Jenson NORTHWEST ESCORTS Students who had to walk across campus late at night found an alternative to risking their safety. The Northwest Escorts accompanied students who had to cross campus after dark. Northwest Escorts was a volunteer organization of stu- dents who made themsleves available to walk across cam- pus after dark with those fear- ing to go alone. Those wanting to become an escort had to go through a background check. " The background check was important because we were 194 Org anizations dealing with a service, " Chris Hagan said. " We didn ' t want someone with a questionable past escorting students across campus. Our desire was to protect people. " Publicity about the escorts was distributed by flyers so that students would be aware of the organization and its purpose. Jill Hawkins, campus safety director and escorts ' adviser, felt the organization was a much-needed one and hoped to make it more popular and efficient. " We were going to restruc- ture some things to increase student awareness, " Hawkins said. " We thought if we had people available all the time, students would remember we were here. " Hagan represented the es- corts at a congressional hear- ing in Kansas City to which he was invited by Congressman Tom Coleman. " At the hearing, I was asked to talk in favor of requiring college campuses to give their crime statistics to the FBI, " Hagan said. In the past, submission of these figures was not manda- tory, but was made so under a new law. Northwest, how- ever, was one step ahead by already making it a practice to submit their statistics to the sherriff ' s department, who put them with the rest of the county ' s figures before send- ing them to the FBI. Concerned for other ' s safe- ty, the Northwest Escorts were always willing to accom- pany students to various cam- pus locations. This way, they took steps toward accomplish- ing one of their goals — to make Northwest one of the safest college campuses in the nation. NORTHWEST FUERS The new faces involved in the Northwest Flyers ' helped make the year one to remem- ber for the campus cycling organization. " The new members were the most positive part of the year, " Steve Wasco said. " They were all anxious and willing to work to make the Northwest Flyers a more recognized organization on campus. " The eryoyment of cycling was what drew many mem- bers to the group. ' ' I ei joyed it because it gave me an outlet to be with people who shared the same interest that I did, " Bill Yager said. During Homecoming, the Flyers raised money to fund cycling events with a Bike-a- TTion in the Spanish Den. Member David Flynn rode ap- proximately 100 miles to raise $100. For every mile he rode, the Flyers ' collected a $1 donation. The event went quite well, according to Wasco. " We had good participation from the alumni, " Wasco said. " Considering it was the first time we held the event and it was during Homecoming, I thought it went over very well. " The Flyers also held their annual Fall Century tour. This event took cyclists on rides varying in length from five to 100 miles depending on their endurance level. NEWMAN COUNCIL.

Organizations 195 NORTHWEST MISSOURIAN With the help of a new ad- viser and an exprienced staff, the Northwest Missourian made many improvements this year. " We had a lot more ex- perience on staff this year, " Managing Editor Gene Morris said. " It helped us get things done faster and train the new people better. " Morris also felt that the staff worked better as a team, ena- bling them to bring out new ideas. After a five-year break from advising the newspaper, Laura Widmer made many staff members wonder where she got all her energy. She was described as dedicated, doing a great job and bringing in new ideas. The beat system was the big- gest change this year. The new system was developed in ord- er to give the staff better con- tacts and to enhance coverage of the campus. Each editor and staff member had con- tacts in almost every depart- ment and organization on campus. This made it possible to depend less on press releases. Another change was in de- sign, as the Missourian staff tried to give the newspaper a more appealing look. The new look and content must have appealed to some- one, namely the Associated Collegiate Press, when they named the Missourian an All American, putting it in the top three percent of all college newspapers in the nation. ' ' It was a nice reward for all the hard work and long nights everyone put in, " Editor in Chief Laura Pierson said. The newspaper made many changes during the year to cover campus news and in- crease readership. 102 RIVER CLUB The 102 River Club consist- ed of students wanting to get involved in ecological issues and er joy the outdoors. In Oc- tober, the club sponsored a lecture on conservation and the rights of hunters. " Everyone really eryoyed the speaker, " Steve Hoyt said, " Lots of people stuck around to talk to him. " They also visited the Omaha Henrey-Doorly Zoo, and got a behind-the-scenes look at how the animals were cared for. " I wasn ' t able to go, but everyone eryoyed it so much that we ' re going to try to make it an annual thing, " Hoyt said. The group also worked on the bike trail being construct- ed behind the Northwest cam- pus and helped to keep the grounds clean. They hoped that they ' d be able to make students more environmental- ly conscious and responsible. PANHELLENIC COUNCIL Panhellenic Council started the fall semester with a differ- ent and unique approach. While a lot of things stayed the same, a lot of changes were made, as well, both on and off campus. One of the on-campus changes occurred in Roberta Hall. In the past, Roberta was governed by Panhellenic Council. However, that changed when a separate Roberta Hall Council was set up. This gave more people a chance to express their opin- ions and ideas. It also gave Panhellenic more time to spend on their organization. The council also made it a point to appreciate outstand- ing teachers. Every month each of the sororities nominat- ed a teacher they felt deserved appreciation. The professor chosen was named their " Professor of the Month. " The council made a sign for that professor and decorated his or her door to show their appreciation. Each semester they hosted a social and invited all faculty and staff. It was normally held in the ballroom of the Student Union Building. Each sorority sent a representative to the social and all members of Pan- hellenic also attended. The council also held a mini- Greek convention in October for anyone who was a sorori- ty or fraternity member. The convention was four hours long and workshops were given on topics such as how to have a better rush and how to improve communication skills. Plans were also made to get another national sorority on campus by fall 1992. The pledge classes were get- ting too large for the sororities and not everyone who went through Rush was receiving a bid. The council hoped that by having another sorority, the numbers might even out. Off campus, they improved the big sister program. Rachel Stenberg was the coordinator of the program. " What I did was match two girls with one child, " Stenberg said. " We got the kids from Eugene Field Elementary NORTHWEST MISSOURIAN.

" They met once a week or three times a month to take their little sister somewhere and spend time with them. All four sororities were involved in the program. ' ' I liked being involved with the program, " Stenberg said. " The girls were fun to work with and it was great to help the kids. " The Panhellenic Council was dedicated to much more than governing the sororities. They took time out to appreciate others as well as improve their own organization. PEER ADVISERS Being a Peer Adviser gave returning students a chance to help freshmen get adjusted to college life. The main responsibilities of the advisers were to help teach Freshman Seminar classes, provide students in- formation on their field of study and help them decide what classes to take. They also helped students famiUarize themselves with the campus by giving them tours and going with them to campus events such as foot- ball games and plays. " We strove to help the freshmen fit in, " Jeff Hoover said, " They were able to meet people with similar interests and get adjusted to life at college. " Peer Advisers did not only give when they advised the new students, they received a lot in return. ' ' It was satisfying to help the new people ac ust, " Sheri Switzer said. " We tried to make sure everyone got off on the right foot. " Other responsibilities for the Peer Advisers included help- ing students focus on grades and staying in school. The group also participated in so- cial activities which i ncluded a Homecoming party and pot- luck dinner and attending the " The Nutcracker.

Orginizations 197 rPi m yfli II PERRIN HALL Members of Perrin Hall Council began the year break- ing a sweat as they banded together in August and helped freshmen move in. This hard work continued throughout the year as members of the council worked to provide those staying in Perrin a place to live and learn. According to President Renea Beech, the council did its best to make Perrin a nice place to live. " We wanted the women to feel as much at home as possi- ble and also give them a chance to get involved in hall activities, " she said. These activities included a formal dance in the fall, Christmas caroling and the making of a hall movie as a stress reliever during finals week. ' ' The movie was a new idea to carry on each semester, " Beech said. " It was humorous and showed the life and times of Perrin Hall. " The hall council also began a can recycling program to col- lect money for the hall. A VCR and vacuum were purchased with the money. Hall Council continued to oversee the publication of Per- rin Press, which was a hall newspaper issued at the end of each month. Reporters from each floor submitted sto- ries about their respective floors. The newspaper includ- ed entertainment, features, birthdays and an advice col- umn. PHI ALPHA THETA History students who ex- celled in and eryoyed history found Phi Alpha Theta to be an exciting honorary society. In November, winners of the Seville-Harr History Department scholarships read research papers to members of the organization, faculty and several Freshman Seminar classes on two separate even- ings. The papers were eight to 10 pages long and a question and answer session followed each reading. The group held their annual Taste of History Day along with installation of new mem- bers Dec. 2. During the initiation stu- dents ate an assortment of ethnic foods that members and faculty brought. Living History Day gave stu- dents from various area mid- dle schools a chance to come and see historical exhibits set up by Phi Alpha Theta mem- bers. " I really eryoyed Phi Alpha Theta, " Jill Owens said. " I have learned a lot, especially from the research papers that were presented. " PHI BETA LAMBDA Although the group got a late start. Phi Beta Lambda, an orgariization which provid- ed opportunities for college students to develop business skills, strove to become active on campus and in the com- munity. The business organization was reactivated at the begin- ning of the fall semester. President Kristi White worked hard to overcome the short- comings of the previous year. Finding a sponsor and learning about the organization took both time and patience. " I had to do a lot of learn- ing on my own, " White said. " It was really rough, but the organization was on its way up. " A pizza party, which ac- counted for the group ' s first meeting, attracted 32 new members. As a way of getting involved in the community. Phi Beta Lambda adopted two needy families and provided them with food for Thanksgiving. " We had a new foundation and wanted the community to know we were there, " White said. In addition, the organization Jr hi Mu Alpha Sinfonia mem- bers Kevin Gullickson, Jeff Gilla- han and Jim Johnson sing ' ' Hanky Panky " during their Variety Show skit. The group won first place in the Independent Divi- sion. Photo by Don Carrick took part in business competi- tions and attended lectures featuring business speakers. " The members were more involved and we were making a lot more decisions on our own, " Vice President Lori Nielsen said. PHI ETA SIGMA J Phi Eta Sigma played a more active role on campus than it had in the past. They participated in the Homecoming parade by enter- ing a jalopy. They also entered the St. Francis Health Run and collected pledges, donating the money to the hospital. Marcos Garcia, a student from Spain, was a guest speak- er for the group. He present- ed a lecture about the holidays that were celebrated in Spain and how they differed from those in the United States. It 198 Organizations ivas followed by a pizza party. President Jeff Chapman lelped organize a tutoring ses- sion during finals week and isked other honoraries to lelp. Since many students ook advantage of the tutor- ng, Chapman felt it was iuccessful. Dr. Patt VanDyke, director )f the Talent Development nter, was the group ' s new sponsor. Overall, Chapman was hap- jy with the group effort. " I was very pleased with low well everything went, " Ilhapman said. " Activities p-ew from last year and it was nore of a society. " PHI MU ALPHA SINFONIA Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia fraternity was known for their musical talents displayed in the annual Variety Show. The organization encouraged the eryoyment and appreciation of music and ensemble. The men of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia were were involved in a number of activities on campus such as their annual bowl-a-thon and a Ground Hog Day giveaway. What kept them busiest was practicing for their Variety Show skit. The hard work on their skit paid off as they placed first in the Indepen- dent Division of the contest. " We had a slow start on the skit, " David Reynolds said. " But it was unbelievable after a week of hard work how good the skit was. You just can ' t top the amount of work put into it. " They also received several citations from the national chapter. An added bonus was placing third in a contest to return semester reports to the national charter as quickly as possible. " For the fall report, Mark Langford, Doug Preuss and 1 drove nine hours to Indiana, " Reynolds said. ' ' We left a band exhibition in Carrollton and arrived in Indiana at 2:15 a.m. We were the first from North- west to ever visit the head- quarters. " PERRIN HALL COUNCIL.

Organizations 199 PI BETA ALPHA The business of Pi Beta Al- pha was business. The organi- zation catered to students seeking real-life experience in the business world. The group drew students majoring in all areas of busi- ness including agriculture bus- iness, accounting, finance, marketing, management, in- formation office systems and economics. " We had a diverse mix of people majoring in many areas, " Brooks said. " It helped us all learn the overall function of business. " In order to gain more insight to business, the members list- ened to guest speakers, which included local small-business people. They also took field trips designed to give them in- formation on the functions of the business world. Pi Beta Alpha toured the Kawasaki plant in the fall. They got an overview of the operations of the plant, ob- serving the complexity of run- ning a production plant. " It was interesting to see Japanese production methods versus American production methods, " Vice President Eric Snyder said. The group held a picnic in the fall and spring designed to help members get to know one another and say goodbye for the year. PI KAPPA DELTA The forensics squad. Pi Kap- pa Delta, grew tremendously in numbers during a year which was, for many, their first involvement in speech competition. " We built the team, " spon- sor Kelly Wright said. " Every- one, but one person, was brand new. " The organization, which gave students interested in speech an opportunity to com- pete with other colleges, had come a long way, according to Wright.

Alphonso Atkins won for ex- cellence in extemporaneous speaking and Byron Webster md Jermifer Spurlock won for excellence in poetry. Webster also won an Out- standing Novice Award given :o the first-year competitors. " I was really excited about getting the novice award, " he jaid. " It was only my third of fourth tournament, so I was aroud of the award. " According to Wright the p-owth in numbers helped nake the year a successful )ne for members of the foren- iics squad. PI OMEGA PI Northwest honor students in ;he field of business education lad an opportunity to ex- change ideas with instructors Tom other universities as nembers of Pi Omega Pi. The organization helped nembers learn what the " real vorld " of teaching could be ike, according to President 5usan Peters. " We brought in guest speak- ers from other universities to five us an idea of what goes )n in the field, " Peters said. ' Being a member of the or- ganization helped you get an dea of what the field was all ibout. " Deb Brackman said the p-oup had an added benefit. " It helped bring together jeople with the same career ;oals, " she said. " This was ex- citing and made me look for- ward to teaching. " Pi Omega Pi ' s overall im- provement earned them ecognition as one of the top hree chapters in the nation. " We were honored by the I ward, " Vice President Travis Zastle said. " The year before, ive weren ' t even organized. iVe were happy to come up af- ;er being so far down. " This fall, the group inducted line new members at the lome of former sponsor Kathryn Belcher, professor of business. The organization promoted the education for and about business as well as profession- alism in the field. Members of the organization were busi- ness education msyors with a GPA of 3.0 or better. PI SIGMA ALPHA Pi Sigma Alpha was a na- tional political science honor- ary club. Members had to have completed 10 hours of govern- ment classes and have a 3.0 average. " We hoped to increase membership and tried to have a more active group, " Presi- dent Leon Sequeira said. According to Dr. Robert Dewhirst, Pi Sigma Alpha ' s adviser, the group was as ac- tive as he thought it could be because most of the members spent a lot of time studying. He added that being a mem- ber was an assest to the polit- ical science majors. " It was a statement of their academic achievement, " he said. " Having been active in the group was an important highlight for their resumes. " PI BETA ALPHA.

Organizations 201 Mil POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB The Political Science Club consisted of students who were interested in the current topics in politics. The club ' s purpose was to advocate awareness and to provide sit- uations in which members could discuss political topics. The group sponsored sever- al social events. A picnic at the beginning of the fall semester welcomed new members. Also, a picnic to welcome back alumni was held during the spring semester. Members operated booths during important events for service projects. On Earth Day, a " Save the Dolphins " booth was managed by the Po- litical Science Club. " The club was nice since it was a place to discuss polit- ics, " Secretary Tina Hike said. " It also gave us the chance to become more involved with campus activities. " The group made plans to be- come involved with the 1992 election. Also, they planned to participate in a model United Nations at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. At the model United Nations, high school and college teams simu- lated the United Nations. Each team picked a country and emulated that country ' s attitude toward the weapons, embargos and other items. PRELAW CLUB The Pre-Law Society had a successful year and provided many activities for its mem- bers. The mailing list for the soci- ety consisted of 120 members, but they didn ' t usually meet all together. Instead, members took part in different activi- ties the society held. The organization promoted the study of the legal profes- sion, prepared its members for law school, promoted partici- pation in conferences and competitions and promoted public discussion of legal issues. One successful activity they conducted was a practice Law School Admissions Test. Ac- cording to President Darla Broste, 10 students took the exam. ' ' The test gives you a chance to practice taking the exam and to get acquainted with the format and the types of ques- tions, " Broste said. The mock trial team, which consisted of 16 members, spent the fall preparing for a competition held at Drake University in February. Com- peting against schools from all over the nation, they were the defense twice and the prose- cution twice. The students also toured different law schools, includ- ing the University of Missouri- Kansas City and several in Nebraska. Various guest speakers spoke to the members includ- ing the city attorney from In- dependence, George Kapke, and also Independence ' s municipal court judge and practicing lawyer Jim Waits. Members of the society spent time trying to set up a profes- sional day with the Pre-Med club and hoped to get recruit- ers from the law and medical fields to come to campus. PRE-MED CLUB Pre-professional medical students acquainted them- selves with professional medi- cine by being active in the Pre- Med Club. The group met twice per week, having a medical- related speaker come in and talk to them about their vari- ous fields. The speakers in- cluded doctors, nurses and physical therapists. The Pre-Med Club held " Scholars for a Day " in which they invited two doctors from the Columbia School of Medi- cine to tour the University and talk to the group. ' ' These doctors were the top in their fields of medicine, " President Eric Bettis said. " If you wanted to go to medical school in Missouri, these were the two doctors who got you through the door. " The group also toured t he University of Missouri ' s med- ical school as well as medical schools in Iowa and Nebraska, giving them an idea of what Midwest medical schools had to offer when they graduated from Northwest. While visiting the schools, students got the chance to tour the areas that most in- terested them. Members also toured the veterinarian school while at the University of Missouri. " MU veterinarian school was a great place to visit, " Mark Johnson said. " We visit- ed labs to see vet students work. We also visited stables where they kept the animals. ' ' To raise money for their trips and speakers, the Pre- Med Club operated the conces- sion stands at football games. PSI CHI Besides fundraising and so- cials, academic honorary Psi Chi promoted learning in psychology. Throughout the year, Psi Chi scheduled several seminars, including topics such as child psychology and g raduate school.

" It had become very com- petitive to get into a graduate program, " President Mary Doolittle said. " Most schools required GRE scores along with your GPA and letters of recommendation . ' ' By helping students under- stand the GRE and concern those who aspired going to graduate school, Psi Chi was able to prepare them for the next step in higher education. X_ r.

PRSSA The Public Relations Stu- dent Society of America celebrated its 10th year of promoting Northwest ' s cam- pus organizations. " PRSSA matured dramati- cally since I had been presi- dent, " Robert Ellison said. At the fall banquet, Greg Hatten of Hallmark Cards ad- dressed the audience. Hatten was the first public relations major from Northwest. Elec- tions were also held. A Softball tournament and bake sale were two fundrais- ers held by the organization. The Promotion in Motion public relations firm had four accounts: ROTC, Rangers, CARE and Student Senate. First-time projects were a PRSSA training workshop and participation in the Kansas City Career Day ' 90. PRSSA was honored as be- ing among only 30 university organizations selected to present an advertising cam- paign for Schick razors. " Guess What ' s In Bobby ' s Box ' ' was one portion of the campaign that was advertised during halftime of home basketball games. RAQUETBALL CLUB The Raquetball Club provid- ed students at Northwest with an opportunity to compete against others and polish their skills. Playing raquetball was the main focus of the group, which held no regular meet- ings and collected no dues. The most positive aspect of being a member was the or- ganization ' s attitude, accord- ing to President Robbie Mack. " Just a sense of teamwork was the greatest part of being involved with the Raquetball Club, " Mack said. " It gave you a chance to test your ab- ility against other people. " The Raquetball Club partic- ipated in and helped organize the ROTC Raquetball Tourn- ament. The club ' s president and adviser both did well in Che tournament. Jim Smeltzer, adviser, won the men ' s doubles competition with Curt Fink. Mack won the mixed doubles with John Kir- by and captured the women ' s open title. The Raquetball Club was open to anyone interested in the sport. For amateurs and dedicated players alike, the ip-oup gave people an opportu- nity to hone their raquetball skills.

A record 45 members en- hanced the group, giving them the chance to advance and be more active. " We were one of the few college campuses that was ac- cepted to join the national or- ganization, " Vice President Kurt Sempf said. A big activity for RTNDA was sending five-minute newscasts to Saudi Arabia. Via KDLX, they were sent to California where their contact then sent them to Saudi Arabia. The group took advantage of every opportunity to gain knowledge about broadcasting by having speakers and taking field trips to broadcast media outlets in the area. ►obby Bearcat is given a present by a giant Schick razor.

The price for bringing peace into this crazy worid we see Affects the lives of those we love, affects both you and me. How can I bring peace myself when the stru le ' s far away? How can I be with the ones I ' m missing here today? We let them know we care for them, We stand here side by side. And we tell the world we love them and want them home alive! Bring them home, keep them safe. Bring them home from far away. We ' re with them now, though they are gone. We ' ll be with them until the day we bring them home. Though the task seems hopeless, there is so much we can do. We can 0ve the love we have for them. They need that much from you. The question of survi for the world, for you and me Depends on how we stand as one, as God ' s one family. We can bring some peace today though the struggle ' s far away. We can be with the ones we ' re missing here today. We let them know we care for them. We stand here side by side. And we tell the world we love them. And we want them home alive! Prayers for AR. IT WAS A TIME OF STRUGGLE AND deep concern. In a time of such uncertainty, comfort and support was greatly need- ed. For many students, that comfort could be found in campus religious organizations. Two days after the bombing began, 40 students, faculty and staff solemnly stood at the Bell Tower to pray for peace. The ecumenical prayer service was organized by the United Campus Ministries, involving the Wesley Center, St. Paul ' s Episcopal Church, Baptist Student Union and Newman Center. During the service, Father Larry Lewis, St. Paul ' s priest, invited everyone there to say aloud the names of people they knew in the Gulf. He also included a made-up name of an Iraqi soldier to make the point that we were not the only ones who were suffering. " Our people were doing the best for our country, just as their people were doing the best for their ' s, " Lewis said. Don Ehlers, co-director of Wesley Center, wrote a song about the soldiers in the Per- sian Gulf titled " Bring Them Home, " which he performed at the service. " My hope was that the song was able to help people understand that they were not alone, " Ehlers said. " Even though we may not have agreed with the war itself, we certainly cared about the people involved and their well-being. " Because of an interest from the community about the song, the Ehlers ' , with the help of Wesley members, planned to send a copy of it to all service people whose fa- milies requested it. The song would be included in a tape of original music based on building relationships and hope in the midst of trouble, all composed by Ehlers. " There was something about music that went beyond words, " Marjean Ehlers said. " It expressed care and hope in a very special way. " Students at the Baptist Student Union held prayer meetings where they mentioned names of family and friends over in the Gulf. " I thought we were beginning to really work, trying to give people support and a lot of prayer for both the people over there and the families left here, " Amy Sprague, BSU member said. " I felt that was the most important thing we could do. " Fellowship of Christian Athletes members plarmed on writing letters to troops and sending them packages of items such as cookies and magazines. They also had sharing times for people to express their thoughts and fears about the war. Daily prayer services were offered to anyone who wished to attend at the Newman Center. " Times like that were when people were confronted with the basic questions of life, " Mike Maher, director of Newman Center, said. " Our role as campus minis- tries was to provide information and presence, to just be with people and to assist people to be with their God. " Although the names were different, their purposes were the same. The students who participated in a cam- pus ministry knew there was always a place they could go to pray and be with people who cared.

According to Don Ehler this was the primary goal ( the council. ' ' The basic function of Rel gious Life Council was to kee communication alive betwee the campus ministries, " I said. Although the council hadn been as active as in the pas they still continued to spons( an united campus ministi with Religious Emphasis Daj in the spring. " We had a breakfast for tt faculty and staff, " Ehlei said. " We also invited a speal er to address them about son aspect of religious relatioi ships. " Regardless of denominatioi Religious Life Council strov to stress unity between the n ligious organizations. RLDS Coming together to associal with others involved in tli church, the Reorganize Church of Jesus Christ of La ter Day Saints Student Assoc ation promoted fellowship. Nearly 20 members m( once every two weeks at th homes of different churc members. To celebrate the holiday: the association participated i both a Halloween and Chris mas party. Members also a tended a hot dog roast wher they were able to socialize an get to know each other earl in the year. The most prominent chara teristic for the Latter Da Saints was to be involved i the church. " We got together and lanned a church service for ur church in the spring and all to socialize with the hurch and with each other, " ' resident Ronda Williston aid. According to WUliston, the roup had a successful year ue to high member participa- ion in activities and great ellowship. RHA Service projects and campus ctivities were just some of he things that the Residence lall Association were a part of his year. The group got together four imes throughout the year to lean up along the roadsides •n a stretch of highway they dopted through the Adopt-a- lighway program. " We really had a lot of fun lecause it really wasn ' t ever hat dirty, but most of us did efuse to pick up road kill, " Secretary Sharon Keadle said. The group held entertaining activities for all students as well. Rock-and-Bowl and sev- eral dances were sponsored by the group, each having good turnouts. Some of the members partic- ipated in the Midwestern Af- filiates of College and Univer- sity Residence Halls district convention in the fall at Em- poria State University. The group of delegates brought back a first-place trophy for their display of Northwest. The group also spent time working on proposals for the escort service and weekend visitatioris. They hoped to pro- pose fair and logical rules for the students. " Being a part of the Resi- dence Hall Association helped me gain new leadership quali- ties and helped me to move up from a resident to a resident associate, " Keadle said.

It repre- sented resident assistants, head resident assitants and the hall directors, giving these groups a chance to discuss what was going on. " Our main purpose was to be able to represent the opin- ions of resident assitants to the Uruversity, other organiza- tions and the student body, " President Mike Brinker said. Brinker also said that the RA Board tried to promote com- munication and unity among the Residential Life staff. Besides biweekly meetings, the RA Board was in charge of RA selection and training. They also planned workshops, banquets and social events. Another big responsibility for the RA Board was their newsletter. It came out once a month and was filled with valuable information and thiixgs that might interest the RAs. " It was a way for us to give and get information, " editor Amy Bell said. ' ' We put in sto- ries that would interest RAs, poems, programming ideas, polls and the most popular item, personals. " The RA Board ' s goals were to have name plates put on all the RA ' s doors and more com- pensation for RAs. J ol embers of the Bearcat Bat- talion ei joy a barbecue at Univer- sity Park.

Photo by Don Carrick ROTC BEARCAT BAHALION The ROTC Bearcat Battal- ion was very active because of the conflict in the Persian Gulf. Each semester the Battalion sponsored Survival, Escape and Evasion and invited any- one to join. The exercise was to see if one could Uve and evade enemy troops in the wilderness. " It was like a POW kind of game, " Garrick Baxter said. The Battalion was also invit- ed to talk during a Mid-East Crisis seminar sponsored by RHA. When Desert Shield changed to Desert Storm, the Bearcat Battalion membership got smaller as some of their mem- bers were called to Saudi Ara- bia, and more were expected to go. To brighten spirits, the members joined in the Yellow Ribbon ceremony and sent a large card saying " Bless our troops in the Middle East " to a unit stationed over in Saudi Arabia. Members of the Bearcat Bat- talion also displayed the flags of Missouri and the United States as the Color Guard dur- ing various university func- tions. Organizations 209 fill ROTC RANGERS In order to get more stu- dents involved, the ranger program changed its name from ROTC Rangers to the Northwest Rangers. According to Commandant Benett Sund, many students did not realize that there was no military commitment re- quired to be a ranger. They hoped that with the name change students would be- come more aware of this im- portant aspect. ' ' We spent much of the year promoting the fact that there was no military commitment, ' ' Sund said. Sund explained the rangers were more like a club and that they participated in competi- tions against other schools ' ranger programs, much in the way varsity sports competed. One of the biggest events the rangers competed in was the Ranger Challenge held at Fort Leonard Wood in the fall. They took a nine-member team to compete in a weekend of numerous events such as weapons assemblies, basic marksmanship, grenade throw- ing and a six-mile road march following an evening of raid and ambush maneuvers. The rangers competed in other competitions through- out the year and also became active with Maryville Public Safety ' s DARE program, which helped educate youths about the dangers involved with drugs and alcohol. The rangers also helped the Maryville middle school set up a dArE program and donated coffee and ice chests for their fund-raising auction. The group went to other area schools and handed out information packets about drugs and alcohol and lectured the students on the packets. Besides physical competi- tions and community service, the group also took a ski trip to Snow Creek and held end- of-the-semester parties and awards ceremonies. ST. PAUL ' S EPIS. CHURCH The Episcopal campus ministry at St. Paul ' s Epis- copal Church offered students and faculty an opportunity to continue growing spiritually as well as socially. The church was one of six religious organizations on campus that was a member of the United Campus Ministries. " As a part of UCM, we had a certain responsiblity to the Episcopalian students on cam- pus, " Father Larry Lewis said. To make students aware of their ministry, the church sent out welcomes to incoming Episcopal students. In the fall, St. Paul ' s had a potluck supper for its mem- bers. A service was followed by food and volleyball. Also, a guest speaker visit- ing the church gave a lecture and showed a film on the Taize community in France. Steve Wilson from Southwest Missouri State University spoke on this unique commu- nity made up of people from all over the world who came from several different de- nominations of the Christian faith. A chili supper at Father Lewis ' home followed the pro- gram. Father Lewis urged students of the Episcopalian faith to join them in their fellowship and growth.

The internation- al fraternity for women was for those majoring or minoring : in music. The women sponsored a number of events with their brother fraternity, Phi Mu Al- pha Sinfonia. Together they hosted a Homecoming dance for their alumni and an ap- preciation breakfast for the music faculty. Lori Combs found the dance to be an especially positive event. " It was one of the best dances we ever had, " Combs said. " I thought one of the mayor reasons it went so well was because we pulled in a lot of people besides the Music Department by opening the dance to the whole campus. " Combs was also pleased with the faculty breakfast. ' ' One of our purposes was to I be of service to the depart- Sment, " she said. " Many faculty members worked be- yond just teaching class and we wanted to show our appreciation. ' ' The women went Christmas caroling to the faculty mem- bers ' houses and to local nurs- ing homes. On a more visible note, the organization took second place in the Homecoming Variety Show Independent Division with their skit, " Bobby in Wonderland. " " I can ' t remember the last time we participated in the Variety Show, " Jackie Lin- quist said. " This actually may have been the first time and we did very well. " The group also did very well when it came to benefitting from their organization. " It helped in leadership qualities and responsibilities, " Laura Gripp said. " Also, we had a lot in common because of music and band. " SIGMA GAMMA EPSILON The professional earth sciences society worked to- ward increased membership and advanced scholarship dur- ing the year. According to President Lin- da Base, Sigma Gamma Epsi- lon had a positive year, initiat- ing three new members in the fall. Qualifications for being a member of the group included having a 3.0 GPA within the department and a 2.67 GPA overall. Prospective members were also required to have completed a minimum of 12 hours within the geography and geology curriculum. The group sold rocks and candy bars each semester to raise funds, the proceeds be- ing donated to the depart- ment. " The fund-raisers were a great success, " Base said. " We raised more money than we expected. " The recruitment of new members and fund-raisers were the group ' s primary activities. Base said the main purpose of the group was to recognize those displaying a high degree of scholarship and profession- alism within the depart- ment. " Our emphasis was on scholarship, " Base said. " We were a small group, but we were really happy with what we did during the year. " ROTC RANGERS. Fiwit Row: Mark Brady, Bren- da Israel and Pete Kaminski.

Membership was based on scholarship, requiring mem- bers to have been active in high school and even more so in college. " We were all so involved with our responsibilities that we didn ' t get to meet as often as we would have liked to, " Andrea Smith said. " Basically we kept in touch through the electronic mail system and let each other know of any de- velopments or meetings. " For 10 hours a week, mem- bers had to devote themselves to a project that interested them, such as tutoring or as- sisting a professor. Some felt a small honorary group had distinction. " It was fun because every- one was so involved in so many different things, " Smith said. " There was a lot of diversity in the organization. " Though it was a small group, the members of Sigma Pi Sig- ma still managed to keep in touch and plan activities for the benefit of members. SIGMA SOCIETY Sigma Society, an organiza- tion for women, served the community and university by becoming aware of communi- ty needs. Sigma Society contributed to Toys for Tots during Christmas and to the area food pantry throughout the year. The group also participated in Spe- cial Friends, a big sister pro- gram with the Eugene Field Elementary School, and visit- ed Maryville nursing home residents. " I thought it was important to service the community be- cause it gave me a warm feel- ing inside, " President Jodi Hester said. " It gave me a sense of accomplishment to help others who were needy. " Along with the area interna- tional women ' s society, Sorop- timist, Sigma Society helped decorate Winter Wonderland. On campus, Sigma Society sponsored the annual Bridal Show and offered voluntary ushering at Encore cultural performances. SOC. OF HUMAN. RES. MAN. The purpose of the Society of Human Resource Manage- ment was to prepare students for the working world and promote student involvement in seminars. Membership was small and most members were upper- level business and manage- ment mjyors. Most of the members would soon be enter- ing the job market. " We were trying to build our membership, " Project Coordinator Lisa Swartz said. " We tried to recruit new members since we were an or- ganization with great poten- tial. " SHRM activities included a Christmas party and several guest speakers. They also planned to raffle a business suit and tour several out-of- town companies. As a service project, the group lended a helping hand to Career Services on Career Day. In return, a speaker from Career Services taught mem- bers how to successfully pre- pare a resume. SHRM was an organization that was dedicated to prepar- ing its members for the work- ing world. Therefore, they aided in making the transition from school to work a much easier one. SOC. OF PROF JOURNALISTS Pursuing the improvement, expansion and support of jour- nalism were members of the Society for Professional Jour- nalists. According to President Heidi Shaw, the group ex- perienced a year of develop- ment. ' ' It was a new beginning for us, " she said. " As far as the chapter was concerned, we were going through a period of regrouping and restructuring. " The main drive of the or- ganization was the promotion of ethics in journalism. Shaw said the field changed with the times, but the basics of jour- nalistic ethics remained as the foundation. Shaw said their activities were limited due to the build- ing stage. In the fall, the or- ganization produced a talk show concerning depression and suicide which was aired on KNWT campus television. A radio program was planned to take place during the spring. Undergraduate members of the Society for Professional Journalists were not only benefitted while in college, but also after their graduation. ' ' A real advantage of the or- ganization was that you were still a member after gradua- tion, as a professional, " Shaw said. SOUTH COMPLEX Helping needy families and their peers, as well as showing appreciation to those who helped them, was the focus of South Complex ' s activities. They began the year with a volleyball tournament in which participating teams were required to bring canned food to benefit the Food Bank of Maryville. Later in the semester. South teamed with North Complex to sponsor a health week. They had a variety of activi- ties aimed toward making stu- dents more aware of their health. The week consisted of a dance, a two-mile Fun Run and information lectures about health problems and services around campus. To show Environmental Services workers that they really cared. South Complex had a Green Men Appreciation Day, picking up trash for them and preparing a picnic lunch. Hall President Jennifer Lynch said the group spent the year trying to help others. " We tried to benefit the people in the hall and on cam- pus as well as in the commu- nity, " Lynch said. r orking diligently, Char- lotte Schlosser pomps Sigma Soci- ety ' s Homecoming float.

Southwind began as an in- ternational organization in February 1990 and in less tha n one year, over 100 groups were formed. The group had more than 30 members at Northwest. The group spent most of the year getting organized, but they also took a stand against Kansas City International Air- port ' s practice of trapping and killing coyotes that were roaming the runways. They wrote letters of protest and in- cluded suggestions to control the coyote problem. i tudent Senate President Tbm Vansaghi addresses the Board of Regents.

SMSTA Education majors got a feel for their future occupation by belonging to the Student Mis- souri State Teachers ' Associ- ation. The organization began the year by holding a picnic for current and prospective mem- bers. Any education major willing to pay a $5 member- ship fee was welcome to join the group. To help them prepare for and learn about their profes- sion, members attended a con- vention in Kansas City. According to Ronda Wil- liston, the workshop gave them many new ideas. " The convention helped us get as much information about teaching as we could, " Wil- liston said. The students also asked principals from surrounding school districts to be guest speakers. ' ' The principals told us how to deal with some of the most frequently-asked questions in teaching, " President Andrea Bodenhausen said. " Student teachers shared some exper- iences with us, too. " The organization collected canned food goods at Horace Mann for needy Maryville families. The students in SMSTA learned important objectives in teaching by belonging to the group. STUDENT AMBASSADORS The Student Ambassadors had another busy year, filled with the usual round of tours and duties. " Students always asked me things like what there was to do on the weekends and why I ' d chosen Northwest, " An- toinette Graham said. " We al- ways had to be prepared to answer anything they wanted to know. " In November, the ambas- sadors welcomed new sponsor and Executive Manager of En- rollment Michael Walsh, who replaced Dale Montague. According to President Jen- nifer Mees, Walsh was excel- lent in his new position. " I thought he did a great job, " Mees said. " He was very innovative in thinking of ways to recruit students. " The group won the Home- coming House dec competition with the theme " Charlotte ' s Web. " The money they won from the competition was used for a trip to Kansas City to see the newly-formed Blades hockey team. A new incentive given to Student Ambassadors was Ambassador of the Month. The title was awarded to the student who had put forth ex- tra effort. A Christmas party added fun to the organization with the exchange of gag gifts. " We didn ' t have to bring gag gifts, but most people did, " Graham said. " It made the party fun for everyone. " Student Ambassadors con- tinued to recruit, promote the image of Northwest and get students involved in campus activities. STUDENT SENATE As the governing body on campus. Student Senate tried to better their communica- tions with students. In order to stay in touch with the student population, Student Senate started pub- lishing a monthly newsletter. According to Lisa Hubka, the newsletter helped inform students of important issues on campus. " The newsletter helped us achieve our goal of gearing our activities to the students, " Hubka said. " We tried to sponsor things like the Home- coming bonfire that would en- able students to become familiar with us. " The Leadership Library was established in the Student Senate office. It was started in order to help train students in leadership qualities. The library made a variety of books and video tapes availa- ble which discussed leadership topics. Senate also participated in the second annual Leadership Training Seminar held Sep- tember 29 at the Conference Center. Speakers Garth Par- ker, Director of Environmen- tal Services, and Denise Ot- tinger. Dean of Students and Student Senate adviser, stressed the importance of good communication. As a service project. Sen- ate and ARA baked 30 dozen cookies for U.S. troops sta- tioned in the Persian Gulf for Christmas. Student Senate also spon- sored the fifth annual Great Blood Drive challenge be- tween Northwest and Central Missouri State. Northwest won the event for the first time in three years. Overall, 371 Northwest students showed up to donate, and 286 units of blood were drawn. Senate planned several pro- jects, including a possible De- cember graduation ceremony.

Organizations 215 TAU PHI UPSILON Tau Phi Upsilon, a new so- cial sorority, wasted no time getting involved in the com- munity and on campus. " We made an impression, and I think it was a good one, ' ' President Kendra Cummins said. The sorority was involved in community service by co- chairing the Maryville Food Pantry. " We had girls do volunteer wd -k for two hours a day there, " Cummins said. " It wasn ' t a one-time deal, but something we continued to do throughout the year. " Cummins said this kind of activity was necessary and was something the sorority wanted to do. " It was important because it was something that needed to be done and was very worth- while, " Cummins said. " We continued to benefit the com- munity in that way and we en- joyed doing it. " The sorority was started be- cause there was a need for a new one on campus, according to Cummins. ' ' There was a definite need for another sorority on cam- pus, " Cummins said. " Every- one we talked to in the Greek organization thought it was a needed addition. " Their first year went quite well, according to Cummins. The sorority ' s hopes for the future were to obtain a na- tional charter and be recog- nized by Panhellenic Council. TOWER YEA RBOOK Answering odd questions to prove attendence at weekly meetings and spending long weekends in the sub-zero tem- perature of the Wells Hall basement were just two of the things being a member of the Tower Yearbook staff had to offer. Tower also provided the perfect opportunity for writers and photographers to practice their skills, get in- volved in their school and work on an award-winning book. Since 1987 Tower had been an All American and a Pacemaker yearbook. In 1989, they also became a Gold Crown winner. " Our tradition of quality publications was something to be proud of, but that was not the only thing that motivated us, " Editor in Chief Teresa Mattson said. ' ' The main moti- vator was the challenge of covering the story of North- west as precisely and colorful- ly as possible. " Work weekends were a spe- cial part of staff life. They were an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other and swap ideas. Being on staff required a lot of time and dedication from all. Weekly beat sheets had to be turned in on every one of the campus organizations. Then, photographers and writers had to be sure every event was covered. And, while all this was happening, there were other story assign- ments and photo shoots that had to be completed before deadlines. The Tower staff worked hard to make every book bet- ter than the last one. UNIVERSITY PLAYERS Although a small group in size, it didn ' t effect the University Players ' dedication to the community and theater department. Even though they only had 11 members, they participat- ed in Homecoming and won second and third place for their house dec, " The Bearcat Dictionary. " Along with their Homecom- ing entry, they also performed service activities for the Theater Department, which included painting and repair- ing things. In October, they exchanged performances with Missouri Western in St. Joseph. Missou- ri Western performed " Equus " at Northwest and in return, the University Players performed " Conference of the Birds " at Missouri Western. " While most people thought the University players were just for theater people, it wasn ' t, " Grant Kabrick said. " The University Players was open to anyone who had an in- terest in theater and they didn ' t have to be enrolled in a theater class or be a theater minor to be involved. I would have liked to see more people get involved in our club. It was a lot of fun and everyone learned something useful. " WESLEY CENTER I When the everday stress of college life became too much to handle, many students found a safe haven at the Wes- ley Center, the Methodist or- ganiz ation on campus. Wesley Center provided a place for students to pray and share feelings while making new friends and having fun. Last fall, the group packed up their sleeping bags and swimsuits to attend a -LJon Ehlers plays the guitar during a midweek worship at the Wesley Center while several stu- dents sing along.

" The canoe trip gave me a great opportunity to get to know everybody at Wesley, " Denise Vogel said. " I met some of my best friends on that trip. " The mainly informal pro- grams at Wesley, such as Mid- week Worship and Personal Friendship Groups, were designed with the student ' s needs in mind. They en- couraged open discussion of concerns and triumphs. Community service pro- grams included visiting a local nursing home once a month to celebrate birthdays. " The residents were always very eager to see us, " Peer Minister Jennifer Gallop said. " They liked talking to the stu- dents and getting to know them. " Members of Wesley Center knew that the doors were al- ways open for them to eiyoy the comfortable settiixg among friends. YOUNG REPUBLICANS With monumental decisions being made in Washington, the Young Republicans stood behind President George Bush. The group concentrated on reorganization and looked at what they could do during the 1992 election, according to Sponsor Tom Carneal. " There was a local election, but the race wasn ' t very excit- ing, " Carneal said. " In a big election we kept busy promot- ing the party. " The organization got in- volved with party promotion by assisting with campaigns, attending rallies and keeping up with pertinent party issues. In the fall, the Young Republicans attended a lec- ture by the Nodaway County Republican Chairman, Mark Allen. The lecture focused on the role of the Republican Party in an off-year election. The spring was spent meet- ing regularly and looking ahead to the upcoming nation- al election in November of ' 92. TAU PHI UPSILON.

Members visited residents at a Maryville nursing home and decorated their doors for the holidays. " It was a lot of fun, " Presi- dent Angela Miller said. " You could tell the residents were very lonely and needed people to talk with them. " In the spring, the sorority sponsored a telethon in which the proceeds went to the Spe- cial Olympics and the S. June Smith Foundation, an East On Bid Day, Rho Chi Kim Murphy congratulates Alpha Sig- ma Alpha pledge Karin Winquist with a hug. Bid Day was impor- tant to the Rho Chis because that was when they were reunited with sorority sisters after having to remain neutral between the sororities during Rush.

" Donating our time really made me feel like I did some- thing worthwhile for those less fortunate, " Miller said. The Alphas co-sponsored a performance of the " Main- Street Opry, " a musical group from the Lake of the Ozarks, with Sigma Phi Epsilon. Pro- ceeds from the event were do- nated to the ALS (Lou Gehrig ' s Disease) Foundation. The sorority was also presented two national chap- ter awards at their national convention in Scottsdale, Ariz. They were named a four-star chapter and received the Pan- hellenic Award, which was given to the chapter that best cooperates with the Pan- hellenic p olicies. Four members also won in- dividual awards. Amanda Blecha, 1990 graduate, won the Frost Fidelity Award. Graduate student Faith Chap- man, last years fidelity win- ner, received a $2,500 scholar- ship. Also, Lenna Strok received the Mary Emerson Blackstone Scholarship and Stephanie Richardson won the Financial Excellence Recog- nition award. When the Persian Gulf Cri- sis began, the sorority wrote letters of support to soldiers stationed there. " I couldn ' t imagine being that far away from home and not hearing that somebody cared about me, " Dana Skwarlo said. Alpha Sigma Alpha also kept involved on campus by spons- oring activities such as rape- counseling seminars, eating- disorder seminars and Adopt- a-Highway program. DELTA ZETA Due to the heat in the Roberta chapter room on bid- day. Delta Zeta decided to add a new twist. They hung a ban- ner outside of Roberta Hall and greeted their new pledges. They took 49 pledges, their quota, therefore exclud- ing them from Spring Rush. The chapter room was remo- deled during the summer. Alumna Phyllis Ross, an interi- or decorator, oversaw the project which included new furniture, drapes, carpet and paint. With the large number of new members, the chapter temporarily outgrew its chap- ter room. Weekly meetings were moved to the Union for more room. Delta Zeta participated in Homecoming activities, and their float, " How Northwest Was Won, " won second place in the Sorority Division. They also had a clown, " Gone with the Wind, " which won second place. One new activity was a week-long retreat in St. Joseph to promote sisterhood. " It was really successful, " President Kristin Hummer said. " It got us away from Maryville and we were able to communicate with each other in a big group. " DZ ' s pledge class sold tuck- ins, in which each pledge was required to sell five and then go to the person ' s room, tuck them in and read them a bed- time story. This raised money for their pledge class. Helping others was once again a major activity for Del- ta Zeta. They co-hosted a Christmas party for their mjyor philanthropy, the Head- Start kids. Smaller philanthropic pro- jects included donating money to several groups, helping with the Special Olympics, sponsoring a canned-food drive and collecting clothes for the needy. A Senior Send-Of f was held for December graduates. A Christmas party was held in the home of alumni Karen Hoskey. Alumni and students eryoyed an evening of ex- changing gifts and memories. Panhellenic Council ho- nored Delta Zeta for having the highest GPA among the four sororities on campus dur- ing the 1989-90 academic year. Delta Zeta proved to be constantly busy promoting sorority, campus and commu- nity activities. Organizations 219 lEll PHIMU The women of Phi Mu fraternity started the year with a bang. For the 1 1th time in the last 13 years, Phi Mu won the Overall Home- coming Supremacy Trophy. After winning Homecoming Supremacy 10 consecutive years from 1978 to 1987, the women fell short of winning in 1988 and 1989. Phi Mu President Barb Mey- er said winning was a goal for them. " Getting the trophy back was really exciting, " she said. " We had become accustomed to winning Homecoming Su- premacy. Winning it was our goal, so accomplishing that goal made us very proud. " Also during Homecoming, the group held a reunion for alum- ni from the class of 1968. The reunion was dedicated to a de- ceased member of that class. After Homecoming, the chapter remained busy with social events including a Hal- loween party. Fall Formal, Valentine ' s Day Informal and annual Spring Luau. " The chapter remained very spirited after Homecoming, making the year memorable and fun, " Meyer said. Another major event was Quad State Day. During this event, Phi Mu hosted women from sister chapters at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, Baker University in Baldwin, Kans., and North Dakota State University in Fargo. The day featured a panel discussion with State Rep- resentative Everett W. Brown, President Dean Hub- bard and national and chapter Phi Mu advisers. " Our purpose was to unify the chapters in a four-state area, " Jennifer Schuyler said. " We gained a lot of new ideas and our chapter grew closer as a whole. " Phi Mu also sponsored ac- tivities to raise money for their national philanthropies. These included a bowl-a-thon and a swim-a-thon. Other charitable activities included participating in a big sister program and writing to Ameri- can servicemen stationed in the Persian Gulf. SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA Sigma Sigma Sigma was ex- tremely active in the Greek system in addition to display- ing community support by tak- ing part in service projects. Several of the group ' s events were date dashes, for- mal and informal dances and mixers in which members dressed to particular themes. They also reached out to the community and the less for- tunate by planning activities with HeadStart children. In addition, Tri-Sigma was part of the Adopt-a-Highway pro- gram and also made donations to children ' s hospitals and Toys for Tots. Tri-Sigma also planned to start a program called Dry Sig- ma in which they would pub- licize a phone number people could call if they felt they were too intoxicated to drive. Sigma members would pick people up anywhere in Maryville on Wednesday, Fri- day and Saturday nights. The program started during Jan- uary. " We hoped that the idea would spread to the rest of the fraternities and sororities, " Vice President Kerry Miller said. Because of their hard work, Tri-Sigma was given the Most Efficient Chapter Award from their nationals. This was a big step up from two years ago when they ranked 46th among the other 86 chapters in the nation. " It wasn ' t an easy award to get, " Miller said. " It depend- ed on what we were doing on campus, how involved we were, the number of pledges we received and the complete- ness of reports we sent to our nationals. They based it on how well we were doing as a chapter. " President Heather Malm- berg was selected to go to a national convention in Wood- stock, Va., representing one of the top five Tri-Sigma Sorori- ties in the nation. The conven- tion provided members with information on how to im- prove their chapter and make it stronger. While there, Malm- berg was also to help in writ- ing the group ' s national by- laws.

However, once they stepped outside, it was obvious this was just an illusion. The temperature was in the chilly mid-50s on the day the Sigma Phi Epsilon frater- nity held their annual mud volleyball tournament. Regardless, many brave souls ventured out to the Sig Ep house to participate in this event. The pit behind the house looked like a pigpen. The area surrounding it was alive with loud music, beer drinking and chilly people. " Once you got wet you couldn ' t feel the chilly weather, " Dog House team member Jamie McMurphy said. The Sig Eps held the volleyball tournament twice a year, involving many Greek and independent organizations. There was an entry fee of $30 and the tournament drew 16 teams. Many people postponed previous engagements to play. " I skipped work just to play in the tournament, " Sigma Sigma Sigma member Christi Apple said. " I wouldn ' t have missed it for anything. " There were many different reasons why people would want to go out on a chilly morning to be covered with mud. " A lot of people came to have fun and get drunk, " Sig Ep Dennis King said. Still others had different reasons. " I felt like I was one with nature, " Alpha Kappa Lambda Vice President Fred Hess- le said. " It was so muddy out there. " The most popular reasons for entering the tournament dealt with drinking and socializing with the opposite sex. ' ' It was a great way to have fun, drink beer and meet some pretty good-looking girls, " AKL Pete Harper said. " So I had no complaints on the weather. " Getting dirty was inevitable in the tournament, but some of the participants wanted to avoid it anyway. " Guys didn ' t care if they got dirty, " Nikki Wolf said. " The girls did care, but the guys would throw us in for the fun of it. " Because of the chilly weather, the Sig Eps didn ' t have quite as good a turnout as in past years, but those who were there said they wouldn ' t have missed it. Rob Loch, a Maryville native who attended the University of Missouri at Columbia, came back for the weekend just to play in the tournament. He was part of the Smurf team, which lived up to their name be- cause they were the shortest team involved. " We may have been the shortest, but we planned to win with a secret strategy, " Loch said. It seemed the ultimate goal of all the teams was to have fun, meet people and socialize. In the end, trophies were given to the top teams in the tournament. " Jane ' s Addiction " won the championship with " The Mud Puppies " taking second place. Despite eHilly veather, Sig-ma F Hi Epsilon ' s mud volleyball tournament attracts lively cro vd Mud Volleyball 223 ALPHA GAMMA RHO After only one year on cam- pus, Alpha Gamma Rho, an agricultural fraternity, estab- lished themselves as an active part of the Greek system. The AGRs had a traditional fraternity Rush, including a smoker and a successful fall bid day in which they gained nine new members. Their pledges were able to attend all the usual activities the active members did. They also had a few events just for pledges including a Greek day, in which they learned about Greek life. One may have thought not having a fraternity house would have hindered their re- lations, but it didn ' t stop the AGRs. They participated in all the usueil Greek activities such as Homecoming, mixers, for- mals and service projects. A great surprise and accom- plishment for the men was achieving chapter status. " We were a colony until this summer, " Vice President Dar- ren Niemeyer said. " At that time we received chapter sta- tus which was very exciting since we had only existed on this campus for a year. " The AGRs seemed to have reason to be proud of their achievements. By achieving chapter status, they were put at the same rank as the other fraternities on campus. ALPHA KAPPA UMBDA After weathering troubles with the University ' s alcohol policy, the Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity came back strong. " I saw a complete turn- around from almost not hav- ing a chapter on campus to what we are now, " President Mark Weishahn said. The AKLs won national rec- ognition for success and im- provement. They were voted " Most Improved Chapter " by AKL nationals. In addition, past president Charles Estep won the Clarence E. Breham Leadership Award which was awarded to only one AKL in the nation. Weishahn said winning the awards provided the fraterni- ty with an extra boost when they needed it. The AKLs also won the Blood Mobile drive and Unit- ed Way Week, showing their willingness to help in the community. Along with their improved image, the AKLs made a num- ber of improvements on their house this year, adding new walls and doors, a shower and wallpaper. Members of the group said their increased determination was the key to a successful year. DELTA CHI Promoting friendship, de- veloping character, advancing justice and assisting in the ac- quisition of a sound education were all goals shared by the members of Delta Chi. With a roster of 110 mem- bers. Delta Chi celebrated yet another successful year. The fraternity had a 100- year anniversary celebration of Delta Chi ' s founding and also of the Victorian home in which they resided.

Org:anizations 225 lElI PHI SIGMA KAPPA DELTA SIGMA PHI Delta Sigma Phi fraternity started the year in a new house after being without one since 1988 when their ' s burned down. The Delta Sigs remembered their old house while celebrat- ing a new one with a " Burn- ing Down the House " mixer with the sororities. " The party was to appreci- ate our new house, remember our old one and thank alumni for the new house, " Gary Wipperman said. The Delta Sigs received the scholarship award for the highest GPA of all fraternities with a 2.6. This was the fifth consecutive year the fraterni- ty had earned this academic honor. In November, John Ed- monds and Wipperman went to St. Louis for a conclave of Delta Sigma Phi chapters from different universities. The fraternity also participated in Kaleidescope Peace ' s Opera- tion Postcard, in which they made a part of a banner that was to be photographed aeri- ally and placed on post cards to promote world peace. In addition the group took part in a big brothers program. Two of the Delta Sig mem- bers, Anthony Nichols and Todd Langholz, were sent to Operation Desert Shield in Saudi Arabia. " We spent 24 hours around the television when the inva- sion began, " Chris Blum said. " We also tied yellow ribbons around trees and wrote letters to show our support for An- thony and Todd. " However, this situation brought the fraternity mem- bers closer as they showed their support for the troops in the Middle East. Phi Sigma Kappa ' s year could be summed up in one word: change. The Phi Sigs made drastic changes when nationals decid- ed to end pledgeship and in- still the Brotherhood Program for all chapters nationwide. The new program was like an extended Rush. Rushees that accepted bids were automati- cally activated. Though members did not know how the program would work out at first, it proved to be a successful change. " You learned as you got older that the important part of being in a fraternity was not the eight weeks of pledge- ship, but what you did as an active member that was im- Jr utting on the finishing touches, Delta Sigma Phi member Matt Kensington works at the AU- Greek Car Wash held in the spring. Proceeds from the car wash went to benefit Camp Quality. Photo by Brandon Russell I J arrin Hassig, Rodney Tutum and Kevin Mimsey reload the can- non after firing it to celebrate a Bearcat touchdown.

" Never salt your food be- fore you taste it " was only part of the interesting eti- quette trivia the Phi Sigs learned at their etiquette din- ner with the Tri Sigmas during their Brotherhood Week. The Phi Sigs also hosted a faculty reception at their house during the week. At the reception, faculty members got a chance to tour the house and see the progressive reno- vations. President Dean Hub bard as well as other facult; members attended the opei house. Fundraising was also sue cessful for the Phi Sigs. The; delivered pizzas from Itza Pit za three nights out of thi week, averaging about $400 : week. The Phi Sigs also raisei money for their Alumni Foun dation by mailing out inf orma tion sheets to alumni the pas ' • 59 years to make a biograph; 226 Organizations book with sales proceeds going to alumni. Hard work was also going into the house. Over the sum- mer, the basement and the bathroom were remodeled. They worked towards rebuild- ing dressers and getting new carpet. Renovations were paid for with the money made from pizza dehveries. It wasn ' t an easy year for Phi Sigs with all the changes. With the new Brotherhood Program, house renovations and fundraisers, the fraterni- ty kept very busy. " It brought us closer together, " Sharpe said. " We worked harder than ever be- fore. It was trying, but all the hard work paid off in the spring. " SIGMA PHI EPSILON ' ' Bingo! ' ' members of Sigma Phi Epsilon yelled every week. The Sig Eps went to St. Joseph weekly to play bingo, raising about a $1,000 a week so they could buy a new house. Also, the weekly " Friday Afternoon Club " met to play sand volleyball. Any Greek member was encouraged to particapate. Along with sand volleyball, the Sig Eps held their annual mud volleyball games where participants learned a new meaning for " getting down and dirty. " " It was fun as hell, " Darin Otte said. Their volleyball skills obvi- ously paid off as they won first place in the intramural volley- ball fraternity division. They also won first place in walley- ball, swimming and punt-pass- kick and placed second in football. As the year got colder and Halloween rolled around, the Sig Eps and Tau Phi Upsilon sorority volunteered to escort children while trick or treat- ing. Erik Schanou thought the experience worthwhile. " I forgot what it was to be a little kid, " Schanou said. " So, it was a lot of fun to help them. " DELTA SIGMA PHI.

" We wanted to be more in- volved with community groups and projects, " Secre- tary Jeff McNutt said. " We also tried to better our rela- tions with the faculty and staff. " This goal was achieved when the fraternity was rec- ognized by their national chapter as the most improved Sigma Tau Gamma organiza- tion in the United States. During Homecoming, the Taus received two awards. Steve Anderson was elected the first Homecoming king in Northwest history and their jalopy won third place in the parade. As a fund-raiser, the Taus picked up debris at Arrow- head Stadium in November. The group cleaned the entire football field and stands after a Chiefs ' game. " It took us seven hours to get the stadium cleaned, " McNutt said. " Those little peanut shells were murder. " The money the Taus received from the activity was allocated to future house improvements. The group had a Christmas dance at Molly ' s in December. A Kansas City band, " The Sons of Rex, " played for the men and their dates. Through organization and coordination, the Taus drew their group together. TAU KAPPA EPSILON The men of Tau Kappa Ep- silon spent another year promoting the messages of in- volvement and philanthropy within their organization. They sponsored a bowl-a- thon at Bearcat Lanes in No- vember for Special Olympics. All funds raised in the event went to help people who par- ticipated in the Special Olympics. " We were trying to be or- ganized and involved, " Vice President Pete Wieland said. " We liked getting members in- terested in helping people. " J- au Kappa Epsilon member Thorn Rossmanith watches over the crowd at the MeatloEif con- cert. TKE members volunteered to guard the stage during the con- cert as a service project.

The drawing took place on Family Day during halftime of the football game against Missou- ri Southern. Melissa Lowe was the lucky winner of the prize valued at $600. During Homecoming the TKE float won third place with the theme " Jungle Book. " " The float was something different, " Dallas Sudmann said. " We wanted something that no one else would have. " The TKE pledge class was their largest since 1986, with 28 new members. The in- creased numbers gave the group a larger budget to work with and more people to help put together activites. " Having a bigger chapter helped give us the boost we needed, " Wieland said.

" Steve Rhodes What a Pain! wave of nausea washed over me as I glanced at the pre- cious life fluid draining from my prone body unceremoniously into a plastic bag. The fact that donating my blood was considered very noble was lit- tle consolation. I didn ' t even volunteer. My girlfriend, being the community servant that she was, decided that " it wouldn ' t hurt me a bit " and signed my name to the donor ' s list. " How are you feeling? " the young and rather attractive nurse attending me asked. Quite frankly, after being asked a series of very personal ques- tions, poked with several needles, and force-fed generic soda, all for the privilege of lying on a table to have my blood sucked through a tube, I was ready to run home and collapse in a blubbering heap into my mother ' s sympa- thetic embrace. However, since my mother lived over 200 miles away, I elected to salvage some sem- blance of masculinity. Consequently, I swelled my chest, dropped my voice an octave or two EVERY DROP COUNTS - Steve Rhodes has his blood tested by a Red Cross as- sistant at the blood drive. Steve donated because his girlfriend signed him up. Photo by Beth McDonald by Steve Rhodes and responded with a very polite, " Quite fine, thank you. " Satisfied with my response, she left to check on some other suck- ers... err... good-hearted donors. After what seemed an eternity, the nurse returned. " Looks like you ' re done, " she chimed enthusiastically. " That wasn ' t so bad was it? " To this I could only manage a meek smile. The rest of my ener- gy was concentrated on not crying out as she removed the needle from my arm. " Do you feel like sitting up? " she asked. " Sure, I feel great, " I respond- ed, once again assuming a mascu- line demeanor. However, I quickly decided to lie back down, due to the fact that the room seemed to be spinning. Assuring the nurse whose deli- cate features were clouded with concern that I was alright, I once again tried sitting up. This time I was pleased to note that the room had resumed a stationary status, but now there seemed to be a number of bright blue stars danc- ing in front of my eyes. Realizing all was not well, the nurse quickly helped me back to a prone position. She then propped my feet on a cushion and placed a compress on both my head and chest. " Are you ok? " she asked while tenderly pressing the cold towels to my forehead. " I feel much better, " I an- swered. " But maybe I better stay a bit longer, just to be sure.

A LOT OF THINGS WERE SAID, BUT LIHLE WAS DONE. " Chris Hulme Re-use It Or Lose It by Stephanie Prey Scott Albright ith the state of our environ- ment being jeopardized daily by an apathetic society, it took involvement from a dedicat- ed minority to increase awareness. Many were concerned about en- vironmental demise. Some felt that, unfortunately, not enough people got involved. A big part of the problem revolved around the excessive amount of waste in this country. People needed to recycle and use recycled products. Some felt the idea of recycling would take time. " It was kind of slow starting, " Lisa Gruenloh said. " It wasn ' t easy to change attitudes at the snap of a finger. ' ' In an attempt to face the en- vironmental problem, the Univer- sity began implementing new poli- cies. A campus- wide recycling pro- gram was initiated. The Residence Hall Association estimated that residents wasted about $6,000 per year in aluminum cans. As a result, receptacles were distribut- ed across campus to try to allevi- ate this waste. Also, the University wood plant consumed nearly 13,500 tons of waste each year. Other environ- mental policies were in the plan- ning stages. According to Dr. Bob Bush, vice president and director of the Center for Applied Research, the University made an honest attempt to make a differ- ence. But, he said that society as a whole needed to do more. " The thing that bothered me was that no one was doing any long-term decision-making, " he said. " People were looking for an out-of-sight, out-of-mind solution. " Some students who were in- volved heavily in the environment issue agreed with Bush. " 1 think there was a minority of people who really got involved, " Chris Hulme said. " A lot of things were said, but little was done. " Despite a lack of involvement, some felt that just making others aware would produce positive results in the long run. " It was good that people were becoming aware of the issue, " Christi Comandella said. " Being environmental- ly aware wasn ' t radical behavior. It should have been part of life.

" Jennifer Roose Opposites Attract H oommates were often thought of as two or more similar per- sons who had related lifestyles and interests. However, this was n ot always the situation. A few students quickly learned that they were entirely different from their roommate. The strange combinations ranged from messy and neat per- sons to married and single per- sons. Women who belonged to different sororities made odd roommates. This was just the case for Aimee Chadwick, Delta Zeta, and Lisa McDermott, Phi Mu. " Being in different sororities really wasn ' t all that bad, ' ' McDer- mott said. " That way we both met so many more people. " Both Chadwick and McDermott agreed that the only drawback was not being able to see each other much. " Other than not being able to see one another very much, it was great, " Chadwick said. " We were just like sisters. " Roommates who had totally different sleeping and waking times definitely made an odd com- bination. Teri Johnson and Jean Worshek fit into this category. Worshek, a believer in th e say- by Christi Whitten ing " early to bed, early to rise, " and Johnson, a night owl, kept to- tally different hours. " She was always out with her friends while I usually stayed around in the residence hall, " Worshek said. " I recall one time that Teri did not come home until late afternoon after being out all night with her friends. " " For us, this combination worked rather well, " Worshek said. " I slept through anything and Teri basically needed little if any sleep. " Roommates Kara Dettmann and Jennifer Roose were definitely an odd combina- tion. Accord- ing to them, Roose was a smoker and bad house keeper, while Dettmann despised smok- ing and was a tidy person. " My smoking bothered her si- nuses, so I went outside to smoke even if it was raining or snow- ing, " Roose said. " If I didn ' t go outdoors to smoke Kara would always get sick. " Being a messy person bothered Roose more than Dettmann. Roose said she tried her best to keep her side of the room somewhat neat. The many different roommate combinations proved there was a wide variation of lifestyles, but some best friends and roommates were those who were odd couples.

Ritenour said she was most surprised to learn she and Wise shared a taste for country music. The two education majors also shared the spotlight when they were nominated for Homecoming queen, Ritenour by Ag Club and Wise by Sigma Society. Despite these likenesses, Ritenour and Wise re- mained quite opposite. Ritenour was punctual; Wise was late. However, she admitted she had been on time more since having moved in with Ritenour. ' ' She cooks homey things like meat and gravy, ' ' Wise said. " I cook gourmet, stir fry and stuff. " Ritenour saw the food preparation a little differently. " I cook; she bums, " she said.

" Though students didn ' t have much to fear from any toothsome animals, many express- ed a fear of a variety of things. Kathy Pace found that her hus- band couldn ' t ease her anxieties about the dark. " I was still afraid of the dark, " Pace said. " Even though I was married, I had to have one of those little night lights turned on. " Spiders made Tracey Ford ' s skin crawl. " I absolutely hated spiders, " Ford said.

According to Hulme, Foraker was a book worm who would study every second of the day if she could. Inside Out. But, in the spirit of true opposites, Foraker disagreed, and described herself as reserved. " She was an ultra-conservative who stuck to the books, " Hulme said. " I was kind of a hip- pie dude; she thought I was ultra-liberal. " I loved the Ramones; she listened to Tbp 40, " Hulme continued. " It was not Tbp 40, " Foraker countered. " I liked European dance music. " " Disco, " Hulme quipped. Despite their predictable disagreeing, Hulme, a philosophy major, had a theory on why their personalities meshed so well. The theory was one Foraker seemed to like. " What was on the outside of me was on the inside of her, and what was inside of me was on the outside of her. She was me inside out.

" Darci Braden Hangin ' Over hen the party was over and the bars closed, students may have gone their separate ways, but one thing many of them had in common was their state of being the morning after. " I always swore the following day that I ' d never drink again, " Marta Clark said. Hangovers were the unpleasant part of a genuine night on the town. Some students did not ex- perience them, while others were traumatized by them. ' ' I got very weak the next day , ' ' Christina Moreno said. " I would be dizzy and sometimes shake. " Students said there were only a handful of ways to cure a hang- over. Remedies included food, aspirin, sleep and vitamin C. " Usually I tried to take some aspirin before I passed out, " Chris Eatock said. " It helped prevent feeling like total hell the next day. But, if I wasn ' t coherent enough to find the aspirm bottle the night before, I just laid a( ( und the next day and rode it out. ' by Scott Albright To some, food was the ultimate cure. ' ' I ate a greasy cheese- burger and drank lots of pop, " Clark said. " It coated the stomach. " ' ' I came home and ate a couple pieces of bread to soak up some of the alcohol, " Darci Braden said. " The next day I drank lots of caffeine, usually Diet Coke. " According to another student, a vitamin C and aspirin combina- tion was the answer. ' ' I made sure I always had a big jug of Gatorade on hand, " Kory Oline said. " Vitamin C and aspirin usually killed it. " Braden said a really bad hang- over could be a nightmare. " You couldn ' t move because you were sick to your stomach, " she said. " It felt like that disgust- ing piece of liver your mom made you eat 13 years ago was ready to come up. " THE MORNING AFTER - With a mixture of eggs, tomato juice and tabasco sauce, Brett Dwyer prepares a Red Eye. This was just one example of the remedies many students had to cure hangovers.

" Dave Matthels House Bashes he shades were drawn so no light escaped, making breath- ing difficult in the crowded, smoke-filled room. People packed the dimly-lit basement all the way up the stairs, all of them intently straining towards a single point in the room. With cups in hand, peo- ple paid homage to the keg, king of beer. Scenes like this took place in many independent party houses. While fraternity houses had al- ways been hot spots to party, in- dependent houses seemed to be growing in popularity. Some of the more popular houses around town were the Cheers House, GDI House and Brown House which had all been around for awhile. A newcomer on the block was the Flipside House. The Flipside was rented by four broadcasting majors and one bus- iness major. Jason Schwarte said they had at least 100 to 150 peo- ple who attended each party and by Tom Chaplin drank between 3 to 5 kegs each time. Dubbed the Flipside because of a favorite saying of the broad- casting majors, " Catch you on the flipside, " the house became a popular place for students to relax and unwind on Thursday and Saturday nights. Janet Wingert said she went to independent parties to socialize and meet new people. Wingert said she didn ' t just go to Flipside parties, but also to the Brown House and the Elephant House, a house some of her friends owned and named. The Cheers House, which was started last spring, moved loca- tions this year because their old house was torn down. Kurt Lux, one of its residents, said they had a party about once a month with 150 to 200 people, drinking a keg an hour. " It was so packed you could hard- ly move, " Lux said. Despite large numbers of stu- dents attending, he said they did not have much problem with the police. Lux said that once the police stopped by twice, and Cheers residents made sure every- one was sent on their way. " We had the police drive by quite a bit, ' ' Lux said. ' ' But no one was arrested. " The house ' s name came about because all of its residents would sit around watching the televison show " Cheers. " Just next door to the Cheers house was the Brown House. Crowds of 50 to 200 people gathered in and around the house during a bash, making it a long- standing favorite spot for party goers. GDI house was started by people who were tired of fraternities and their parties, so they proclaimed their dwelling the " God-Damned Independents! " house. The GDI house catered to a smaller crowd, usually about 20, which helped to reduce police involvement. " The only party we had broken up by the police was Homecom- ing, when ASAP called and complained, " Dave Mattheis said. The owners of the houses, who seemed to enjoy the company gave a new, inviting meaning to the phrase " See you at the Flipside! " THE PARTY ' S OVER -A Maryville Public Safety officer breaks up a party at the Flipside House. The police responded to reports of a mass of loud party- goers gathering in and around the house.

IT TURNED OUT TO BE TOO CONVENIENT. I FOUND MYSELF OVERDRAWN QUITE OFTEN. " Kim Grillo Cashing In oney! Money! Money! We all wanted it and new innova- ions made it even more accessible to us. The invention of the money card literally made cash available at the touch of a finger. Since students were so busy with classes and var- ious other activities, convenience was a very important issue. Bank cards became extremely popular with college account holders be- cause they were a quick and easy way to obtain cash at any time of the day. " At first I thought I ' d never get a money card, " Kim Grillo said. " But when I got to college, the bank encouraged me to get one. They told me how convenient it would be for me. It ended up be- ing too convenient. I found myself overdrawn quite often. " The bank cards worked differ- ently for each individual. It could have obviously helped or hindered a person ' s money situation. The use of the card depended greatly on the type of account a person possessed. " Having a money card has real- ly been an asset for me, " Kala Lavin said. " With the type of ac- count I had, I was only able to write so many checks a month. I found it was a good alternative to by Traci Runyon writing checks or carrying cash. " Some students were even will- ing to drive fur- ther to a machine ine instead of go- ing somewhere close to cash a check. After getting a money card, the temptation to get cash was some- times too hard to resist. The con- trol students had over their spend- ing became a key factor. " I found myself spending too much money with my bank card, ' ' Pete Miller said. " It was a hassle at times because there was only one machine that would accept my type of card. It was incon- veniently located, not to mention my bank charged me $1 every time I used it. " Nodaway Valley ' s Handi-Bank card was the most popular among students. It could be used in al- most any machine in town. Other card holders had only one or two machines to choose from.

While money cards eliminated inconvenient trips to the bank, the accessibility a nd convenience of the machines lured many to with- draw their funds at any time of the day.

LUCKILY, NONE OF US EVER GOT HURT, JUST A FEW BRUISES. " Eric Burtis Winter Blues inter weather at Northwest was not always pleasant. Even though the snow trans- formed the campus into a winter wonderland, the wind chill factor resembled that of Antarctica. Due to the harsh conditions, students did their best to create indoor ac- tivities that would combat winter blues. Nintendo tournaments, card games and movies were a few ways students occupied their free time. When students became bored with the usual ac- ti vities, they sometimes created their own. The men of seventh floor Dieterich played a game called " Hall Ball. " ' ' The three guys on a team would get at op- posite ends of the hall and throw tennis balls at each other, " Daniel Smith said. " It wore you out pretty quick. " Residents of second GO FISH - Forced to stay indoors because of the cold winter weather, Tra- cy Fenn, Stacy Adams and Kelli Lovitt play a friend- ly game of cards. Photo by Deb Karas by Christ! Whitten floor Phillips Hall became notori- ous for their " Butt Races. " Those participating would sit down, nude, on the wet shower floor. Then they pushed off a wall with their feet and raced to the opposite end of the restroom. " We did this when we got bored or just in a silly mood, " Eric Bur- tis said. " Luckily, none of us ever got hurt, just a few bruises. ' ' Others weren ' t as daring and passed the time exercising and having occassional pillow fights. Students who caught " cabin fever " dared to venture outdoors. These brave souls had snowball fights and went sledding in the Tundra. " We played a lot of football in the snow, " South Complex Hall Director Mike Malone said. " It be- came known as the ' Snow Bowl ' . " The dark and gloomy days of winter were sometimes trying for Northwest students. However, many overcame their blues with just a Uttle bit of creativity.

After a couple of years of work- ing together as RA ' s in North Complex, these four had become family. Staci Matthiesen, Troy Oehlertz, Chad Dar- rah and Ko Wang came from different back- grounds, but the experiences they shared in the hall brought them close together. Wang was from Hong Kong and Matthiesen, Oehlertz and Darrah were from Iowa. The ob- vious cultural differences were the basis for some good times. " We American-ized Ko some, " Oehlertz said. " We tried to learn her language, but we only got as far as the dirty words. She taught us her ' s and we taught her ours ' . " Wang commented on their friendship. " We were close because we worked together, " Wang said. " We understood each other very well. Sometimes we didn ' t even have to say anything to know what one another was thinking. That ' s why we made such a great team.

IT HELPED ME STOCK UP. " Karen Richard Brtnda Young Mary Young Michelene Young Kris Yule Amy Yunek Heidi Yurka Angela Zaner Donna Zauha Susan Zerface John Zimmer Kelly Zimmerman Angle Zuber Shari Zuckweiler Brian Zurbuchen ITZA PIZZA O A La Carte by Scott Albright Stephanie Frey izza was the breakfast of champions. And, for some, the lunch, dinner and snack of champions as it was one of the most popular college foods. However, the convenience of lo- cal pizza delivery meant it would have to be paid for with cash. For those living in the residence halls, using their Ala-Dine card for a hot pizza called for the inconvenience of leaving fheir room. ARA Food Services had deli- vered pizza to the residence halls in the past, but students could not use their meal plan for payment. In September, ARA changed its policy so that students on Ala-Dine could purchfise pizza and have it delivered to their room. Students who purchased pizza or bread sticks from Itza Pizza could have other menu items deli- vered to them with the exception of nachos, ice cream or potatoes. " I ' d call up and order a small pizza, and then have them throw in a six-pack of Coke, some cup- cakes and sandwiches, " Karen Richard said. " It helped me to stock up for a couple of days. ' ' Itza Pizza Supervisor Johnny McMillen said response to the delivery service was very positive. " We sold over 200 pizzas a night, " McMillen said. " But, I think our big- gest advantage was that there were other items students could have delivered. " However, Rich- ard said deliv- ery was not al- ways up to par. " There were a lot of times when it took two hours for delivery, " Rich- ard said. " If you could wait that long, it was convenient. " Itza Pizza delivered from 4:30 to 11:30 p.m. daily to residence halls. Golf carts were purchased to aid in the delivery process. " I thought the carts would be kind of fun to drive, but they wer- en ' t, " Phi Sigma Kappa member Kevin Munsey said. As a fund rais- er, the Phi Sigs delivered pizzas three nights a week. A few employees said the carts were a hassle and many students claimed they were nearly run over by them. In addition, the carts were the focus for some hor seplay. " I had my cart moved up a cou- ple feet from where I parked it, ' ' PIZZA RUN — In preparation for a delivery, Shangae Sharp loads the Itza Pizza golf carts. The new carts were used to deliver pizza and other food items fittm the Spanish Den to stu- dents ' rooms. Photo by Don Carrick Howard Kucera said. " One night I found ice all over my seat, appar- ently someone had mistaken my cart for another that had almost run them over. " Despite a few minor problems, Itza Pizza delivery was a success, giving Ala-Dine students the con- venience of having hot, fresh piz- za delivered right to their rooms. 264 Undergraduates □lii oIj3B Virgil Albertini, English Michael Allen, English Charles Anderla, Tfechnology Patty Andrews, Prod.

" Chad Darrah NIGHT Owls ost college students arriving home at 6 a.m. had been out partying with friends, but some were just getting off work. In ord- er to pay for rising college costs, many students had to get jobs, and for some, the only available time was late at night. Some felt the biggest benefit of working late hours was the option of working longer shifts and not having to work as many nights. " 1 could work 10 hours in one night, " Hy-Vee employee Chad Darrah said. " Then 1 didn ' t need to work as many nights to get the hours 1 wanted. " Many who worked late-night shifts thought more interesting clientele came in at night. " There weren ' t as many cus- tomers at night, but most of them were more interesting and very friendly, " ASAP worker Sharon Kenagy said. The excitement that came with late-night customers was not al- ways positive. " When someone came in to buy alcohol we had to check their ID and those of everyone with them, " Kenagy said. " If one per- son was under age we couldn ' t sell to them. Sometimes they got up- set and we had to call the police. ' ' Physical strain was another problem with graveyard shifts. It left students feeling tired during daytime activities. " I could tell when I had been working too long, " Darrah said. " I felt worn out, but not really sick. " These tired spells made it hard by Jennifer Chandler to concentrate during classes and many stu- dents said they couldn ' t take notes very well. Sometimes stu- dents couldn ' t motivate them- selves to get up when the alarm clock went off and they slept through classes. Classes were not the only thing affected by working late. Students sometimes had trouble scheduling appoint- ments with advisers who had morning office hours. Some had other part-time jobs or clubs that were affected. However, others thought their odd working hours made these things easier. " Working late nights gave me a lot of free time to see my kids or make appointments with people who worked during the day, " Eveready worker Alan David said. David added that those who worked late shifts did have to manage their time wisely. " I didn ' t always have a lot of time to study, " David said. " I tried to take classes that were offered late in the day. I couldn ' t always get the classes or teachers I wanted. " A big drawback to working late nights on the weekends was that students couldn ' t use those days to catch up on other things. " I didn ' t get anything done on ALL NIGHT LONG - In order to pay her bills and remain enrolled in school, Sharon Kenagy works nights at ASAP. Many students found the only way for them to work and go to school was to work the graveyard shift. Photo by Vicki Meier the weekends, " Kenagy said. " Af- ter work I came home and slept and then when I got up I didn ' t feel like doing anything. Then it was time to go back to work. " Although it sometimes made life more confusing or difficult, most graveyard shift workers felt that working when they did was their best option, even though it took a lot of ac ustment. " It wasn ' t something you could ever get used to, " David said. " I just coped with it. " So while everyone else was preparing for the day ahead, grave- yard shift workers pulled down their window shades and snuggled under their covers for a good day ' s rest.

A perfect example of being seen but not heard was Milli Vanilli. They had received a Grammy for their album, " Girl You Know it ' s True " on which they did not sing. " It wasn ' t so bad that they lip-synced, but that they lied and did not give credit where credit was due, " Karen Bedalow said. The duo claimed to be the victims of their producer who refused to let them sing. Their Grammy, which was for Best New Artist, was withdrawn. White rap artist Vanilla Ice allegedly fabri- cated a story about his background involv- ing gang fights and rough neighborhoods to enhance his image. The plan backfired, though, as rumors of a plush suburban child- hood in Texas seeped to the public. Shocking the public with images of nudi- ty, bisexuality and multiple sex partners, Madonna was a perfect example of how to use a controversy to her best advantage. When MTV refused to play her video " Justi- fy My Love, " she packaged and sold it as a home video, ultimately making more money than she would have if it had aired on MTV. Irish pop artist Sinead O ' Connor offend- ed many when she would not allow the Na- tional Anthem to be played before her con- cert at the Garden State Arts Center in New Jersey. O ' Connor was subsequently banned from ever performing there again. Fans at the Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego were equally offended when come- dienne Rosearme Barr screeched out the na- tional anthem, grabbing her crotch and spit- ting at the end. DPop stars Milli Vanilli admitted to lip-syncing all their songs. The performers were stripped of a best new artist Grammy they had won once the truth was known.

The movie was followed up by a segment of the ' ' Oprah Winfrey Show ' ' where the fa- mily of Ken Rex McElroy gave their side of the decade-old murder. McElroy was shot and killed July 10, 1981, in downtown Skidmore. His criminal life of intimidation and bitterness ended in a bar- rage of gunfire from two separate weapons. The assassins had yet to be convicted be- cause of a lack of evidence against anyone. The town had remained silent about the happenings of that summer morning, hop- ing to put the whole issue to rest alongside their town bully. But due to the bizarre nature of the story, Harry MacLean wrote a best-selling book detailing the life and death of such an intimidating man. The book, " In Broad Daylight, " was transformed into a movie, which was widely talked about by those who knew underlying circum- stances and the story behind the incident. Skidmore citizens re- mained quiet about the incident, while the McElroy family cried out for justice to be served. DSkidmore residents watch the " Oprah Winfrey " in the bar outside which Ken McElroy was killed.

A total of 80,00 Ameri- can troops had been deployed to the desert of Saudi Arabia. 272 Index by Scott Albright Denise Hansen STATE NEWS ISSOURI TRIALS DMissouri found itself with a case in the Supreme Court when a landmark decision regarding euthanasia was made in June. In an 8-1 vote, the court ruled that a per- son had the right to refuse Ufe-sustaining medical treatment. The court also estab- lished by means of a 5-4 vote that unless there was " clear and convincing evidence " the person would not want to be kept alive with such a device, it could not be removed. Nancy Cruzan, the comatose woman whose family brought the case, died in De- cember, shortly after a Missouri state court allowed her life-sustaining equipment to be removed. Another case that attracted a lot of atten- tion involved Faye and Ray Copeland, a Mooresville, Mo., couple, who were charged with killing five transient farmhands in a cattle buying scheme between 1986 and 1989. Faye, 69, and Ray, 76, were charged with tricking their workers into passing bad checks for cattle. The Copelands then killed and buried the men so the $32,000 checks could not be traced. Faye went to trial in November. The jury found her guilty and recommended the death penalty. The judge decided not to give her a formal sentence until after her hus- band ' s trial. Ray ' s trial proceedings became complex after an attempted plea bargain. He would plead guilty for the murders if the state would not pursue the death penalty. The judge denied the bargain. A jury from St. Louis County was brought In to hear the case which started in March. DKim Dill, a Mt. Vernon, Mo., high school report- er, talks to Nancy Cruzan ' s father outside the Re- habilitation Center.

The quake, which occured in September, was measured at 4.6 on the Richter scale. Although the tremor did little damage, many residents were affected. In 1989, a New Mexico climatologist had predicted a msyor earthquake for the fault region. Iben Browning predicted the quake for early December and estimated a magni- tude of 7.0. Many residents near the fault zone took Browning ' s prediction seriously. Insurance agencies received calls from worried home owners about earthquake in- surance. Broadcasts, brochures and newspaper articles contained instructions for conduct during and after a quake. Many families stocked their homes with bottled water, dry foods, flashlights and batteries so that they would be prepared if the quake did really occur. Jennifer Kelly, a student from the St. Louis area, was worried about the possible quake. She said that her mother worked in a hospital and they had ordered body bags and additional beds to prepare for the catas- trophe. The quake, which could have easily des- troyed much of the St. Louis area, did not occur at the time predicted. However, there was still a 50 percent chance for a power- ful tremor in the future. A powerful earthquake did rock Northern Iran leaving an estimated 45,000 dead, 30,000 iryured and hundreds of thousands homeless. The quake, which destroyed much of northern Iran in June, measured 7.7 on the Richter scale. It occurred along the Caspian shore near Gilan and Zai jan, Caspian agricultural provinces. Some areas were estimated at 90 percent ruin while others were totally destroyed. Aid from Japan, Britain, Iraq and the United States was sent to Iran to help them in their time of need. Iranians had experienced several large quakes in the past. However, the death toll and damages suffered by the 1990 tremor were the worst. The effects of another m or quake were felt in Manila and the surrounding area. The quEike, measuring 7.7 on the Richter scale, killed at least 193 people and left hundreds more trapped in collapsed buildings. Close to 50 of the deaths occured in the Hyatt Hotel in Baguio. The entire front sec- tion of the structure collapsed. Aftershocks continued the following day. LJManilan citizens run out of the Hyatt Hotel in Baguio during an earthquake. The quake killed approximately 193 people and collapsed the front of the hotel.

Together, East and West Germans lifted their voices in song as the words of the national anthem, " Unity and justice and freedom for the German fatherland..., " echoed through the crowd. Since the ending of World War II, pres- sures of dissatisfaction within the Warsaw Pact had led to many revolts and protests in German society. Due to the Communist rule of the Soviet Uruon, East Ger many had remained economically unchanged. Their neighbor. West Germany, thrived in the de- velopments of industry and technological advancements. The time for solidarity was at hand. In November 1989, the destruction of the Berlin Wall began giving Germans the first step toward freedom. " It was interesting to know you were ex- periencing a historical event and watching a wall of separation be torn down brick by brick, " Lance Long said. The year brought unification to Germany after 41 years of forced separation. The mer- ging of East and West Germany eliminated the Communist government, or Socialist Party, that had been there previously, and established a democracy. Unification sup- port was given by the United States and the Soviet Union as an attempt of forgiveness upon the German society. Rusty Parkhurst, a Northwest student whose father was stationed in West Germa- ny, felt many suppor- tive feeUngs toward the unification of the two nations. " It went to show that unification could be achieved, " Park- hurst said. " The wall had always been there, and the des- truction of that wall, the obstacle, showed that with coopera- tion, unification could happen, not only in Germany but in other countries. " Parkhurst also ex- pressed that Germany needed to keep work- ing to consolidate other areas of their government. At first the Soviet Union hesitated to- ward the ehmination of Communist East Germany, but they eventually agreed to the proposal and al- lowed the union with the democratic western half. After many painful decades of separation, Germany had experienced an answer to their prayer for unification. The black, red and gold flag waved alone as a symbol of one government, and the voices of freedom tes- x y • • • r • T I ' if ■Lil,-:i DGermans celebrate the unification of their na- tion in a nightlong, nationwide celebration with fireworks and music.

To see how serious the plight of the home- less was, the U.S. Census Bureau spent $2.7 million to count them. Their numbers were estimated at anywhere from 250,000 to 3 million people. Fears of a recession and income tax in- creases were two other economic worries that faced the American consumer. On one hand, Congress approved the budget in October after months of disagree- ment. But at one point, before an agreement was reached, the government was forced to close offices and other agencies across the nation since it had temporarily run out of money. Tourism was also affected by the shutdowns across the country. In Indepen- dence, Mo., the Harry S. Truman Library and home was closed. In Washington, D.C., national landmarks were closed for tours, in- cluding the Capitol and White House. Also, President George Bush backed away from his " no new taxes " campaign pledge. Because of new taxes imposed by the Bush administration, an estimated $137 billion would be raised in the next five years. These include increased taxes for upper income taxpayers; excise taxes on gasoline, tobac- co, alcohol and other luxury items; and pay- roll taxes for workers who earned over $51,300 a year. On the other hand, the banking industry suffered from the Savings and Loan bailout, which could cost as much as $300 billion over 10 years. The estimated cost could have risen, however, depending on the severity of the real-estate sector decline. In December, the Federal Reserve Board voted to cut its discount rate for the first time since 1986. This move was aimed at in- jecting some life into the sagging economy to prevent the probable recession. As the economy faltered, many who had eiyoyed previous financial success fell from their pinnacles. For example, developer Donald Trump, a symbol of the ' 80s materialism, was forced to give up partial control of his hotel, ca- sino and real estate empire to creditors af- ter he failed to make payments on time. Drexel Burnham Lambert Group Inc., the parent company of the brokerage which made junk bonds popular in the ' 80s, was fined for security violations. The company ' s top trader, Michael Milk- en, was given a 10- year prison term for illegal trading. The $40 billion bill from Operation Des- ert Storm, which came at a time when the government was cutting the defense budget due to the end of the Cold War, also was a cause for con- cern because of the growing national def- ecit. Whether Americans were concerned about a tax increase, the homeless or a deep- ening recession, it was difficult to say whether the country ' s economy would come back strong or sink further towards a depression. DThe U.S. Census Bureau conducted a survey, costing $2.7 million, to count the number of home- less Americans. As the economy entered the reces- sion, homelessness became an increasingly promi- nent issue.

Last year, Gorbachev initiated a 500-day plan that was designed to eventually con- vert the Soviet Union into a market econo- my, similar to that of the United States. The plan was designed with a transition period which was to allow time for the fea- tures of a market economy to be introduced to the Soviet people. These features includ- ed certain freedoms such as private owner- ship of land and business. " A market economy in the Soviet Union was a wise decision, " Dr. Ben Collier, eco- nomics professor, said. " The actions just weren ' t there to back up the words. " Shortly after the plan went into effect, Lithuania and other Baltic states declared their independence. Gorbachev condemned this move and retaliated by sending in troops, ordering them to " cease and desist. " American critics took stands for both sides of the issue. Most of them supported Gor- bachev, although uncertain of his ability to fulfill his goals. " He was obviously contradicting himself, and his people were potentially going to go against him, " Dr. Robert Dewhirst, govern- ment professor, said. The threatening civil war and Gorbachev ' s crackdown on the Baltic states wasn ' t well received by the United States and President Bush. " These developments threaten to set back or perhaps even reverse the new U.S.-Soviet relations, " Bush told the Associated Press. According to U.S. News and World Report, Gorbachev warned the congress that his leadership faced its " last chance " to stop the decline of the U.S.S.R. and he would not hesitate to rule by decree in restive areas. Whether the Soviet leader would fulfill his goals was yet to be answered, but with the Baltic states pushing for independence, the loom of a civil war was on the horizon. DAttempts by Soviet President Mikhail Gor- bachev to bring democracy to his nation have resulted in economic woes.

XXV. Index 281 by Steve Rhodes No. 1 PERSIAN GULF CRISIS AR AND PEACE D Preoccupied with the reunification of Ger- many and Mikhail Gorbachev ' s struggle for democracy in the Soviet Union, President George Bush and other senior government officials gave little thought to rumors of dis- cord in the Middle East. Even in late July, when Iraqi troops massed on the border of its tiny, oil-rich neighbor, Kuwait, U.S. offi- cials regarded the threat of conflict as sim- ply a bluff. Much to their dismay, however, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was doing any- thing but bluffing. On Aug. 2 his army swept into Kuwait practically unopposed. The next logical step for Hussein was to attack Saudi Arabia. If successful in this, he would control nearly one-fifth of the world ' s oil supply. Realizing the negative effects this could have on the world ' s oil economy, the United Nations formed an international coa- lition to combat Hussein ' s actions. The first action of the coalition was to levy economic sanctions against Iraq until they chose to withdraw from Kuwait. For over five months, the sanctions were strictly en- forced by the member nations of the coali- tion, yet Hussein stubbornly refused to sur- render his newly-captured territory. As the outlook for succesful sanctions became in- creasingly dim, coalition forces steadily in- creased the size and readiness of their mili- tary forces, known as Operation Desert Shield, in the region. In an effort to spur Hussein into action, a deadline of Jan. 15 was set for Iraqi forces to leave Kuwait. The coalition stated that failure to adhere to this deadline would result in the use of the coalition ' s military force. A number of attempts were made to achieve a peaceful solution in the weeks pri- or to the deadline ' s expiration. Despite these attempts for a diplomatic solution, includ- ing a meeting in Geneva just days before the deadline expired betweeen Secretary of State James Baker and Iraq ' s Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz, no agreements were reached. No agreements could be reached; and as the Jan. 15 deadline passed, so did the patience of the coalition forces. Shortly before 7 p.m. E.S.T. on Jan. 16, Operation Desert Shield gave way to Oper- ation Desert Storm as the first allied planes were attacking strategic points in Baghdad and outlying areas in Iraq. The attack came as no surprise to many Americans. " In August, when Kuwait was taken and President Bush responded like he did, I knew war would eventually come, " Dr. Richard Frucht, history professor said. For more than five weeks, the coalition maintained this intensity around the clock. Allied bombers relentlessly pounded Iraq, crippling much of their military capability as well as their morale. Iraq responded by launching Scud missUes into both Saudi Arabia and Israel. Hussein hoped that his missiles would bring retaUa- tion from Israel, whose involvement threa- tened to split the allied coalition. Although initially viewed as a threat, primarily because of the belief that they were armed with chemical weapons, the Scuds were rendered ineffective by the Patriot missile which intercepted and des- troyed most before they struck the ground. Israel refrained from entering the conflict and the coaUtion remained united. Despite the enormous damage inflicted on Iraq by coalition air assaults, Hussein stiU re- fused to comply with United Nations ' de- mands. Again the patience of the coalition wore thin and they armounced plans to in- itiate ground fighting if an agreement could not be reached. Although Iraq agreed to peace plans presented by the Soviet Union, they were rejected by the United Nations and Presi- dent Bush. Thus, as they had before, the coalition made good on their promise and ground troops were sent into Kuwait Feb. 2. Much to the delight of the coalition forces, they encountered only token resistance from Iraqi troops, tens of thousands of whom surrendered. The ground war, which many thought would be a long, bloody af- fah-, ended Feb. 27 in a cease-fire a mere 100 hours after it began. Under the conditions of the cease-fire Iraq agreed to accept resolutions guarantee ing Kuwait ' s sovereignty and to pay repa rations. The also agreed to release all POWs return the remains of those killed in action and assist alUed forces in removing mine: from Kuwait. President Bush addressed a relieved na tion after the cease-fire was declared. " This is a time for pride, " Bush said dur ing his address to the nation. " Pride in oui troops, pride in the friends who stood wit! us in the crisis, pride in our nation and those people whose strength and resolve made victory quick, decisive and just. " The American-led coaUtion had achievec a complete military victory in only 42 days with a minimal number of casualties. Hav ing this accomplished, world leaders were then faced with the new dilemma of whai to do with post-war Iraq and its president DHavlng reached Saudi soil in August, the U.S Army ' s heaviest ground firepower was deployec behind Arab forces on the front line. The tlnitec States sent thousands of tanks and support vehi ' cles to aid the coalition.

Index 283 1 ' here ' s No Place Like Wells Ibwer staffers find experience and good times at work by Allison Edwards Knowing the proper spelbngs of peoples ' names whom we didn ' t even know, calling all over town in an attempt to identify an unknown photo sub- ject and drinking enough soda to obtain a lifetime sugar high were just a few of many pleasures we experienced as members of the Tower yearbook staff. Working on yearbook reaped benefits (or curses) that often stuck with us outside of Wells Hall basement. " I would just be sitting in class and the teacher would read off someone ' s name and I would think that I knew that person, but 1 couldn ' t remember how I knew them, " office assistant Melinda Dodge said. " Then I would real- ize that I remembered their name from indexing it, but had no idea who they were. I felt like an idiot. " Of course there were advantages to knowing the names of nearly everyone on campus and an added bonus if we could match that name with a face. This iimate gift prevented a campus-wide (and sometimes city-wide) identity hunt. " Bruce and I ran all over Phillips Hall one day trying to identify a guy in a mud football photo, ' ' Assistant Pho- tography Editor Todd Weddle said. " Most of the team was from that hall, but the guy was so mud-covered that it was hard to tell who he was. We finally found a guy who thought he knew who he was, so we went to that guy ' s room and his roommate said it was him. " However, photographers wer- en ' t the only ones sent on wild name chases. Writers also did their share of leg work, or, rather, ear work. " The worst aspect of working weekends was calling people at odd hours to get information about a story, " Assistant Copy Editor Steve Rhodes said. " I woke people up and even talked to drunk people at parties and they weren ' t always happy to hear from me. " Although being a Tower staffer did have its trials and tribula- tions, it also had its rewards. Every Saturday of a staff work week-end our faithful adviser, Laura Widmer, brought donuts to feed the hungry masses. While there were only 20 to 30 of us there, we could put away enough food to feed an army. However, Laura was also con- cerned that the majority of food _| rw _P mi m Jt k E te, H E m p V li H m P 3 iv B B rtfc 5y - m irr 1991 EDITORIAL BOARD. Front Row: Steve Rhodes and Stacy Bauter.

This prac- tice earned her the nickname " Mom. " " Laura looked out for us and cared about our well- being, ' ' chief photographer Scott Jenson said. ' ' For some of us, she was the closest thing to a mom we had here. ' ' Saturday morning donut feeds were also a time for everyone to relax and share stories about their week, as well as make a game plan for the work day. " One time I squished the red filling out of a jelly do- nut while the editors set the agenda for the day, ' ' pho- tographer Beth McDonald said. " It made for fond memories and sticky hands. " Of course spending weekends and often many week- days with fellow staffers pulled us together. In many ways our group was an extended family, and we often picked up expressions and jokes from each other that made others wonder where we were from. This could be referred to as basement language and much of the col- loquial speech originated from Editorial Assistant Scott Albright and writer Scott Vater. " Some people in the basement were too reserved, so Albright and I felt it was our duty to break the monotony, " Vater said. " We all took part in the yearbook lingo that flowed free- ly in Wells. We were a small part of a large group that was squir- relly 90 percent of the time. " Many of us found the basement of Wells to be our second home and, around deadlines, our only home. Relaxing on our new lounge furniture, we discussed everything from new academic requirements to the ethical aspects of cohabitation. Besides these intellectual con- versations, we often went out for pizza and had socials where we played volleyball or just ate of junk food. " We were like our own little fraternity, " writer Christi Whit- ten said. " If anyone needed any- thing, someone helped out. " We united as a staff because of a love for Tower and the will to make the best book ever. And, with all the good times and friendships that this book creat- ed, it was safe to say that we succeeded.

As we watched friends and relatives go to fight for another country ' s freedom, our emotions ranged from fear to anxiety to hope. We supported our troops in the Gulf, yet cried out for peace, and we were all relieved to hear of the cease-fire. While many of us felt a strong sense of loyalty to our country during the short war, we also were loyal to our University lb enhance our school pride. Student Senate held two Gripe Days urging students to share their con- cerns and give the Senate an opportunity to resolve as many problems as possible. Senate also planned the first annual " I Love Northwest Week, " featuring speakers, a picnic and a variety show. While we were already one of the most progressive universities in the nation, our comprehensive electron- ic campus still being the only one of its kind, we were honored to be the first university campus selected as a site for a new NASA Challenger Learning Center. As long as history was being made, it was bound to repeat itself. Despite this, we ended the year knowing things would never be the same again. f - 286 Closing Sue Zertace shows her pride during the Persian Gulf War.

We were challenged to create yet another " killer " Tbwer year- book, and look what we ' ve got going here ... the best book ever Of course, to produce the " best book ever " has been the goal of every Tower editor who has gone before me, and I might be biased about this one. So, in all fairness, even if this isn ' t the best ever, I am safe in saying it ' s a DAMNED GOOD ONE. Like all other Tbwer geeks, I ' ve given my all to the book over the past four years. I ' ve skipped meals to typeset. I ' ve reprinted a picture countless times (Yes, photographers, it was only a pic- ture — singular — but I did it very early in the morning). I ' ve knocked on doors at residence halls to identify someone in a photo. I ' ve gone weeks on end without doing laundry, almost 48 hours without showering and at least 56 hours without sleep- ing. Geeks, you ' ve seen me at my worst. The flipside of that is that you ' ve also seen me at my best, or rather, you have been the rea- son for my best. A special thanks goes to all Tower editor alumni, the ones I learned from before taking the position of editor in chief. Copy editors who taught me to typeset, design editors who tau t me to appreciate Broadway musicals and e ditor in chiefs who passed along their leadership wisdom . . . every one of you has touched my life in a way I ' ll never forget. Congratulations for this book, however, goes to the most talent- ed group of people I ' ve ever worked with, the editors and staff of the 1991 Tbwer You guys are my best friends. Photography crew: Kudos! for the best photography ever. At the beginrung of the year, I chal- lenged you to provide me with photos that would make not only Northwest but K-State and Indi- ana State stop and take notice. Well, you ' ve done it. Brandon and Tbdd, you busted your butts to keep the editors of two publi- cations happy, not to mention live up to your own high stan- dards. Yours were tough jobs, but you handled them brilliantly. Thanks. And thanks to the rest of the crew, Bruce, Don, Stacy and Scott, who are some of the hardest working photographers I ' ve come across. Alii, you copy queen, your Cutlass proved to be a wonder- ful replacement for the Maver- ick. You ' re the only one who ever really appreciated that car, and for that, I thank you. You brought our new writers a long way with your patient explain- ing and caring attitude, and just look at the killer quotes in this book! Jenny Pair, what a helluva time we ' ve had these past two years. From the day you fell over in your chair in the typesetting room, I knew we were destined to be quite a pair. Since then, we ' ve seen each other through countless deadlines and all- nighters, which yielded almost as many memories as the Apt. 57 parties. We ' re terrific. Scott, we couldn ' t have done it without you. Your interview with Bob, your suitcasing story . . . primo stuff. You know, you ' re the kind of journalist I want to be, determined and talented. I love your stories, even if you have caused me to be " a bit wordy at times " myself, and I can ' t think of anyone I would rather have rang in the new year with. Marsha, thanks for your pa- tience with the new job descrip- tion. You know Steph and I were just as confused as you were about it sometimes, and you were terrific for hanging in there with us. The beat system worked miracles for our groups deadline — good work! Steve, what a lot you taught us all about patience and hard work. More than once you helped Steph and I out by offer- ing your insights on men and why they do the things they do . . . hope we didn ' t get too per- sonal. You were always an op- timistic breath of fresh air in this sometimes pessimistic world. I ' m glad to have gotten to work with you. Stephaiue, you are a GOOD person. Not only because you ' ve done your job well . . . you ' ve de- vised a grading system I could never have handled, and staff relations are the best I ' ve ever seen. You ' re a good person be- cause you ' ve taught me so much . . . about life, about love (the ba- sis for everything), and about myself. Don ' t worry, we ' ll always be friends. Tbgether, we ' ll take the East Coast and the journal- ism field by storm. Laura, I owe all my college successes to you. You ' ve always pushed me to be all I can be, and you ' ve always believed I can be a lot. Your success is an inspira- tion to all of us geeks, and I am very lucky not only to work with you, but to know we ' ll always be great friends. Other thanks goes to Adrienne for her work on setting up por- traits and group photos, but mostly for putting up with me. Also, thanks to residents of the Crowes ' Nest for giving me a place to get away to, and to my parents for still believing in me even after the bounced checks and rare visits home. Northwest, this is your book — we set out to tell your story ac- curately and colorfully, and we ' ve succeeded. I hope it will bring back as many fond mem- ories of 1990-91 for you as it will for me. T»reM Mattson 1991 Tower Edttor In Chief : - ' . ' ■Si.; kk ' ■■■ J- %.ti V-V ' . : - -
