When we returned in August we were again greeted with changes due to construction. Nearly 1 4 years after fire destroyed the third floor of the Administration Building, the de- bris was finally cleared away over the sum- mer, and a new driveway and sidewalk linked Colden Hall to College Avenue. An official Tree Walk book was also pub- lished, giving us an official guide to the variety sho Akatsuka and gf trccs that camcd Northwest the distinction Maseshi Seki pass by a sugar maple located by of bclng MissouH ' s most bcautlful campus. the Administration Building.

The new road would direct traffic outside of town instead of down Main street. A large sign marked the site where a bigger and better Taco John ' s would be built. A new restaurant, The Greenery, opened drawing crowds with its all-you-can-eat buffet. We were also given new meal options on campus as ARA offered the Aladine Plus 7 plan. The library underwent a change of its own as the periodicals were rearranged and the debit card sytem eliminated pockets full of change by allowing us to buy copies with a copy card. Controversy arose when the University pro- posed to build a Lamkin parking lot on the block including the Phi Sigma Kappa house and the Christ ' s Way Inn.

Opening 5 AFTER OPINIONS ARE VOICED IMMMMMMMMMM protest to save their homes. Even something as traditional as Homecom- ing forced us to make a change as only four organizations built floats for the parade. Alpha Sigma Alpha donated its float money to Hur- ricane Andrew relief, but other organizations cited different reasons for not building floats. As the November 3 presidential election drew nearer, we weighed the issues and waded through the mud-slinging campaig n to choose our candidate. It seemed everyone was ready for a change as Bill Clinton was elected the first Democrat as president in 12 years. We faced many changes and decisions Family Day. For the early on. Some went by barely noticed and first time in six years, a different student be- others took some getting used to. But no matter , . ,. » came the mascot after the issue we soon learned that some things ' " ' " " • " ' ' ' - " ' ' " - ated in the spring. were easier said than done. Photo by jon Britton.

As we eased back into college life we found that changes and decisions the year brought seemed to bring us together to get things done. Greek organizations held their annual fall Rush. While the sororities had approximately 260 rushees, the number of fraternity rushees was down to only 200, causing Greeks to wonder if increased regulation of the Greek system was discouraging students to join. We packed back into Rickenbrode Stadium to cheer on the football team, taking advantage of three more home games in the season. Our enthusiasm was questioned, however, when only four organizations built floats for the Homecoming parade and some groups chose not to participate in the Variety Show. It seemed most things were easier said than done, but we did our best to adjust. Student Life Division 9 Comedian David Naster entertains incoming Fresh- men at Mary Linn Performing Arts Center.

Changes in orientation give freshmen a real dvanta ge 1 ' H ucross the country spent B months trying to adjust to ■ B the rigors and freedoms of f A college life. Since 1986 ■ H the Admissions Office at Northwest welcomed freshmen with a week solely dedicated to easing this adjust- ment period. Student Ambassadors, peer advisers, and various organization members vol- unteered to help students move into the residence halls, direct traffic and answer questions regarding the campus. Resi- dent Assistant Shelly Pfister said that this centered attention was one of the strong points about the Advantage program. " Without orientation week they would have gotten lost in the shuffle because there was so much information, " Pfister said. " This way we directed our attention to just freshmen and got all of their ques- tions answered. " Like any program, changes and im- provements were necessary to stay in tune with students. The week began dif- ferently when students moved in on Sat- urday rather than during the week. Ad- vantage Director Shari Schneider said this was mainly for the convenience of working parents. Another change was the new activities added to the program. One new event that faired well was the faculty administra- tion picnic where faculty and administra- tors cooked and served hamburgers to students. The student organizational fair was brought back after a hiatus last year, and gave students a glimpse of the variety of activities available on campus. Registration was also changed slightly. Instead of registering directly through the Registrar ' s Office, students enrolled for classes in their adviser ' s of- fice. Dave Walden said the registration process was very helpful in choosing which classes he should take. " The enrollment process went pretty well, " Walden said. " They suggested classes they thought I would do well in and would be interested in. " Adjustments were also made in infor- mational sessions with smaller, more in- dividualized sessions in computer labs for hands-on training. Jill Ragee thought both the informa- tional sessions and advisers were a big help in getting the year started. " The week was very rewarding, " Ragee said. " 1 learned a lot that 1 prob- ably would not have on a bigger campus, like how to use the computer equipment and where my classes were. They basi- cally spoon-fed us. " Although many students seemed to agree that Advantage " 92 was a key fac- tor to settling into the college curriculum, student evaluations showed that some freshmen thought the week could have been condensed into two or three days. Schneider, however, said it would not have been possible to register 1,350 freshmen in two days and still have complete informational sessions. " Trying to register 1,350 freshmen over two days would have been horren- dous, " Schneider said. " There were also things that we had to address that needed a little more time. " Each individual needed a different amount of time to adjust, whether it was the students ready for the party scene or the homesick stu- __ dents anticipating Christmas break. Al- most every student stumbled through the first week, usually victorious and more at ease thanks to help from the Admissions Office and the Advantage program. — Karis.s% Bowey " The week was very rewarding, " Jill Ragee said. " I learned a lot that I prohahly would not have on a bigger campus... they basically spoon-fed us. " Orientation 11 Displaying their banner, Tau Kappa Epsilon members support the football team.

Eiitliusiasni builds as Bearcats take bme Field Crowding into a football stadium on a Saturday alternoon was not always a common scene at Northwest. A change occurred this season; seven out of 1 1 Bearcat football games were played at Rickenhrode Stadium. A larger number of home games increased enthusiasm and attendance at the football games. When compared to the four of nine home games in the 1991 football season, 7 home games was a dramatic increase. " Scheduling just worked out for us this year, " Head Football Coach Bud Elliot said. " Next year it will all change back. " The increased number of home games inspired many organizations. Although the " Cats did not always prove victorious, many fans were loyal supporters. " Sometimes the fans seemed to lose interest if the Bearcats were losing; of course more people got involved if they were winning, " Cheerleader Jason John- son said. " The Greeks usually had spirit and cheered quite a bit. " Many fraternities made it a point to attend the games played at Rickenbrode Stadium. " We made it a habit to go to all the home games, " Kevin Hebner. Alpha Kappa Lambda, said. " It wasn ' t required, hut a lot of us showed up and we all sat together. " Sororities also took advantage of the football season and made the games a group activity. " As many of us that could go to the game met in the front hall of Roberta, " Jenny Gratias, Sigma Sigma Sigma, said. " We all walked over to the games as a group to show our spirit. " More fans at the games inspired the Bearcats to be more spirited and enthusi- astic about their home performances. " When the crowd got into the game it helped our morale. " Bearcat linebacker Jim Willits, said. " It helped us get even more pumped for the games. " The Steppers and Cheerleaders also noticed a change in Bearcat fans ' atti- tudes. " I thought more people came to the games since more of them were in Maryville, " Amy Tomlinson, stepper, said. " We did a lot more performances, and it was a lot of work, but we liked it. " The Steppers and the marching band were not used to having so many home football games, and had to prepare more half-time shows. " We did a lot of work to prepare for the games, " Band Senior Field Assistant Dawn Hascall said. " We tried to add new routines and change our show for each game. The crowd was really responsive to our shows. " The Pre-Med Club also noticed an in- crease in attendance and was very grate- ful for more home games, since their main money-maker was selling conces- sions to fans by the — — - east entrance. " When the " Sales im- proved a great CFOwd gOt deal, " Pre-Med Club fundraising illtO the co-chairman . Tracy Dickman game it t T:X helped our helped to increase yy o 1 al e " f. .„,!., .u;.

Buying new supplies and space-saving de- vices seemed to be part of the ritual of preparing for a new school year. Photo by Jack Vaught. The end of summer signified a ritual that took place for many col- lege students. Summer jobs began to wind down, vacations had all been taken and fall fashions began to go on sale. These occurrences meant only one thing, the new school year loomed near. The beginning of school affected stu- dents in different ways, but one aspect that everyone had to deal with was get- ting settled. These settlements varied from moving into a new living arrange- ment, to adjusting to changes that took place at Northwest. Perhaps the biggest group of people who had to get settled was freshmen. Adjustments included new rooms, room- mates, classes and dealing with new free- doms. Some found they adjusted well. " Mainly I was anxious about the new experiences and about being on my own with no one to tell me what to do, " Laura Moore said. However, things did not go as smoothly for all freshmen. " I had a few sleepless nights trying to get used to the mattress and it took awhile to get used to the different types of food on campus. " Alex Luers said. While freshmen dealt with these ad- justments, some upperclassmen had to deal with moving back into the residence halls. Reasons for these moves varied from money to mere convenience. For some upperclassmen, convenience niled where they ended up living. " 1 only needed an apartment for six weeks, and no place would rent for that amount oftime. " TrishaObermeier said. " It wasn ' t hard to get adjusted to living back on campus, because 1 had to share a room when I didn ' t live in the dorm anyway. What I really liked about living on campus was the positive atmosphere MM which promoted a secure family setting. " While some people decided to move back on campus, others chose to take a big step and move off campus. For some this could be an exciting and worthwhile move. People gave cost and freedom as motivation. Other reasons to move in- cluded privacy, larger rooms and more peace and quiet. " There were advantages and disadvan- tages to any change, but the biggest ad- vantages were the privacy, freedom and of course the cheaper rent. " Sheila Wood said. " However. I found that because 1 did not live on campus I was not as inclined to participate in campus activi- ties. Also, having no computer and hav- ing to get up earlier to get to class were some serious negatives. In my case 1 thought the advantages definitely out- weighed the inconveniences. " On the academic side of getting settled, returning students had to adjust to changes in the B.D. Owens Library.

" Although it looked confusing. 1 thought once 1 figured it out. it was easier. " Anita Fisher said. Although set- tling into campus — — - — life was an old habit for some, changes made it a new experience. For new mem- bers of the Northwest community, be- coming adjusted to all of their surround- ings was definitely easier said than done. — Je :vifer Krai. my own, Laura Moore said.

As THE SUN BEGAN TO SHINE on the sleepy Northwest cam- pus, they arrived in a steady stream of cars. The cool, fall morning was the perfect set- ting for the moment they all anticipated. Mothers and fathers stepped out of their cars, stretched their legs and smoothed the wrinkles travel had left in their clothing. From back seats emerged boxes and bags filled with gifts and treats for their children. They made the trek to where they would meet their offspring and a Northwest tradition car- ried on. Family Day 1992 had begun. " We traveled 290 miles to see our son, but it didn ' t really seem that far, " Karen Lancaster said. " We were really looking forward to seeing him, and the trip was well worth it. " The day held much in store for parents and students to enjoy, including welcom- ing ceremonies, residence hall and de- partmental open houses, a picnic lunch and a football game against the Univer- sity of Missouri-Rolla. Christy Christiansen thought Family Day was an ideal time for parents to see their children in a new atmosphere. " We went to the picnic and the game and it was a lot of fun, " Christiansen said. " It gave parents a chance not only to meet teachers, but also to meet my new friends and to talk to other parents. " Family Day began with a convocation in the Mary Linn Performing Arts Cen- ter, where the University Chorale and the Northwest Cheerleaders provided enter- tainment, and President Dean Hubbard welcomed families. " This was our third Family Day and we were excited because our daughter sang at the opening ceremony with the cho- rale, " Dee Ashley said. " It was fun. " Following the convocation, parents toured the academic buildings. Some parents expressed pride in the choice their child had made to attend Northwest. " I had a lot of pride in my daughter ' s college selection because I am an alum- nus, " Bob Sweeney said. " It was good to see her carry on after me. It was also nice to come and see some old faces, meet some new and see the changes. " Students and their families enjoyed a picnic lunch by the Bell Tower while listening to music provided by KDLX. After lunch, families joined at Rickenbrode Stadium for the football game and cheered Northwest on to vic- tory. Through touring Northwest and get- ting a taste of the college experience, parents seemed pleased with what the University had to offer. " When my son first went away to col- lege, I didn ' t want him to leave, " Mary McCauley said. " But he has made a lot of good friends and has gotten a good edu- cation. Northwest was definitely the right choice for ' — — him. " As families pre- pared for the trip home and began to say goodbye to students, they seemed happy with the Family Day ac- tivities. " We had a nice time touring the campus, " Sweeney said. " But my fa- vorite part of the day was being with ' " my daughter. " Family Day 1 992 was again a success, and seemed to be a positive experience for everyone involved. Jemfer Gathercole " We had a nice time touring the campus • i Bob Sweeney said.

All four sororities took their quota of 40 new members. Photo by Scott Jensen. Greek organizations gain new members wshin g In One of the most exciting Greek events in the fall se- mester was Rush. The 1992 fraternity and sorority rushes were successful events for participating chapters. With approximately 260 woinen paiticipating in Rush, pledge selections were difficult. One-hundred sixty pledges were initiated, and all so- rorities met their quota of 40 pledges. " I thought Rush went well, " Panhellenic President Sherry Driver said. " All of the girls were wonderful. " One tactic used from past years was utilizing Rho Chis. A Rho Chi w as some- one each rushee could talk to about func- tions and different sororities. Rho Chis did not re ' eal which sorority they were a member of, and helped the women by answering any questions they might have. " The whole idea of Rho Chis made me feel more comfortable, " Phi Mu pledge Jolene Trapp said. " It was nice to have someone to talk to who could answer my questions. " Each sorority could only accept 40 pledges. Due to the high number of women who rushed, making decisions on who to give bids to was difficult. " I definitely thought a fifth national sorority was needed on campus, " Lisa Stageman, president of Sigma Sigma Sigma, said. " A demand was obviously here. " " If the pledge class numbers were higher, it would make Rush too imper- sonal, " Delta Zeta president Aimee Chadwick said. In contrast to the sororities ' need for a new chapter, a lower number of students participated in fraternity Rush. Approximately 200 men participated in Rush. Many creative events were planned by fraternities to attract pledges. Eight ot the nine campus fraternities participated in fall Rush. Alpha Phi Al- pha elected to participate only in spring Rush so they could learn more about the rushees and give freshmen time to get to know Northwest. One change from previous years was that function cards had to be stamped by five fraternities in order for rushees to receive bids. " It was a good idea for the Inter-Frater- nity Council to be the only ones to stamp, " Brian Weaver, Delta Chi Rush chairman, said. " It did get complicated towards the end of Rush because some guys had trouble getting their final stamps. " " The system was more effective than the old one, " Rob Jako of Alpha Kappa Lambda said. " They couldn ' t just catch up with a member on campus and get signed without attending a function. " This new policy helped ensure that the men wDuld look closer before deciding. " The quantity of rushees was down, but the quality was better than past years, " IPC President Gary ___ Pilgrim said. Extended function times and card regulations allowed for more Rush activities, in- cluding comedians, nights at the track and ball games. Many fraternity members stated that numbers were down and more recruiting would need to be done in the summer to increase numbers for next year. Each year changes were made to make Rush even more successful and enjoy- — ■ able for everyone involved. Both the fra- ternity and sorority rushes seemed to run smoothly and active members hoped that it would get even better. — KXTIE H RRIKO " All of the changes were an improve- ment in Rush, " Rob Jako said. Rush 19 Classic figures offer a historical view aek in Time " Each of us spent about 70 hours on the float, " Anne Roseman said. " It was very stressful, but very worth- while. " Throughout Maryville, the Home- coming spirit shone like a ray of sunshine. The tradition was felt all over campus, and every stu- dent eagerly awaited Walkout Day, signaling the true beginning of Homecoming festivi- ties. With the theme, " History Worth Re- peating, " both Greeks and independents incorporated famous figures along with important periods in history in their floats and clowns. House decs made a come- back, and for the first time, sororities and fraternities joined together to build them. " I thought the theme this year was really good, " Jennifer Whiteing said. " It was neat to see the different periods of history, and to remember Northwest and the way history was. " The Variety Show began the festivities on Wednesday night, Oct. 14., when Homecoming king and queen were an- nounced. Loree Sheldon, sponsored by ___ Phi Mu, was named Home- coming queen and Jonathan Phillips, sponsored by Alpha Sigma Alpha, was crowned Homecoming king. " It was an honor to be named Northwest ' s very first African-American Home- coming king, " Phillips said. " I tried to be really involved on campus, not because I had to, but because I cared about the students. I cared about the mi- norities on campus, and wanted to show them that they — . could achieve anything. " " I was thrilled to be nominated by the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, not because I worked with them a lot, but because they saw who I was and wanted me to represent them, " he said. " As our first African-American king, I felt as though I lowered the bridge for others. " The Variety Show offered many changes. Shad Ramsey, Kent Andel and Chad Dennis, who called themselves, " Bohemians On Parade, " replaced past emcees Jean Jones and Shawn Wake. Phi Mu Kristy Reedy said she enjoyed the Variety Show skits, but thought some of the humor was in bad taste. She also thought more of the skits made fun of sororities than in past years. Ramsey, Andel and Dennis kept the audience laughing in between skits. They joked about President Dean Hubbard, so- roritiesand the proposed demolition of the block the Phi Sigma Kappa and Christ ' s Way Inn houses were on for a new park- ing lot. They repeatedly tried to influence everyone to get out and vote. " I ' m sick of people complaining about the government, " the emcees said in uni- son. " If you don ' t choose, you lose! " A big change in the Variety Show was the fact that some organizations that usu- ally participated decided not to. Many students commented that they were dis- appointed that Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia refrained from participating in the show. " The [Phi Mu Alphas] quality of music and performace was a lot better than other groups, " Mike Peterson said. " They were a top-notch group and they made the show more enjoyable for every- one. " On Walkout Day. KDLX hosted the Fall Freeze at the Bell Tower. Students braved a chilly day to hear good music and enjoy hot dogs and soda. Patrick Mahoney and Heather Houseworth, KDLX DJs, hosted the event. Students won prizes for participating in various activities ranging from chugging soda to presenting Mahoney and Houseworth with Northwest shirts without school colors on them. -continued V-P Adjusting Janine Biga ' s clown head, Cassie Peel helps before the parade.

" It gave us time to finish our costumes. " " Friday night, however, was the night for Homecoming participants to get ready for the big event — the parade. " Friday night we stayed up all night at the float, " " Kate Walthall, Delta Zeta, said. " We did quite a bit of last-minute pomping. I got home at 3 a.m. and I had to be up at 5 a.m. to get ready for the parade. " " Anne Roseman, in a pomp costume designed to be a cherry tree, and Walthall, dressed as George Washing- ton, both who represented Delta Zeta, won Best Sorority Pomp Clown award for " George Washington. " " For many, clowns were the most vivid memory of the parade. Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, dinosaurs, Mickey Mouse and even Christopher Columbuses " Dis- cover card were found parading around the " Ville. " We chose to do dinosaurs because we knew they would be really fun and crazy in the parade, " " Janine Biga, Sigma Sigma Sigma, said. " The best part of being in- volved in the parade was seeing the fin- ished result. We put in a total of about 50 hours each. " Drastically reduced in the parade were the number of floats. Delta Zetas, Phi Mus, Delta Chis and Phi Sigma Kappas were the only Greek organizations to build floats. Many students commented about the lack of floats in the parade. ■ " I thought that many of the Greeks and the independents who didn ' t participate in creating floats were missing out, " " Deina Menke said. " They were lacking a lot of the school spirit that was essential to Homecoming. I knew that the Alphas contributed $3,000, the money they had allocated for the float, to the Florida Hurricane Andrew victims. I thought that was really great. " " The Alphas also raised $420 in door- to-door donations. Some had a different viewpoint on the float situation. " We did a float because Homecoming had always been very important to Phi Mu, " " Pam Dunlap said. " We wanted to help support the community. The people really seemed to enjoy the floats and it was great for alumni to come back and see us represented in the parade. It [the float] took us about four weeks to build, and I lost quite a bit of sleep, especially on Thursday and Friday night. But it was definitely worth it. " " The Phi Sigma Kappas, like most groups who built floats, worked long hours. " We started working on the float the third week of school, and we finished Saturday morning, " Scott Sloan, Phi Sigma Kappa, said. " It was definitely worth it, though. _ There were a lot of Greeks not doing floats, and it both- ered me to see that. Maryville was supposed to be known for floats. " " Some alumni had different opin- ions on the lack of floats. " I loved the floats, but I thought it was a good idea that — - ■ — there weren ' t as many of them in the parade. It saved the organizations a great deal of money, " Mary Whan, class of " 38. said. -continued " We are holc ig on to yestertlay, reach- ing for tomorrow hikI piiDhig tlieiii botli logetlier to make a connection to acliieve today, " Jonatlian PliilKjis saitl. Homecoming 23 Back in Time -continued Another change in the parade was the rearranging of the float category. Instead of having separate categories for sorori- ties and fraternities, there was only one overall float category. " I didn ' t like throwing everyone in one category, " Mike Turner, Phi Sig, said. " I liked it better when there was a division between fraternities and sororities. " The Phi Sigma Kappas, who won the float category, dedicated their float, " Cats Voyage To Victory, " to the memory of Greg Coffer, a fraternity brother who died over the summer. Inste ad of doing a float, members of Sigma Phi Epsilon had a 72 hour see-saw marathon. The Sig Eps raised over $700 for their philanthropy, Lou Gerhig ' s dis- ease. After the parade wound down, the crowds began anticipating the football game against Central Missouri State Uni- versity. For the first time in the season, the ' Cats led in the first quarter of a game. Once halftime arrived, the ' Cats were tied with the Mules at 7-7. Northwest lost 10-7 in the last minutes of the game. Homecoming ' 92 was definitely one that would be history worth repeating. — Jewmifeh Mahokey The Phi Mu float makes its way down the parade route.

Marriage is an institution not to be entered into lightly, and many students found mairiage to be a commitment they were ready to undertake. They put aside their worries about money, time and school, and took the plunge into matrimony. " We talked about waiting until after graduation to get married, but decided we would be in the same situation then as we are in now, " Glenda Gustin said. " We just decided to go ahead and get married before my .senior year so that when we got done with school, we could go right into our life. " Some students ran into obstacles when they decided to tie the knot. " My family was kind of opposed to my getting married, " Adam .Shipley said. " They didn ' t want me to get married. They just wanted me to wait and stay engaged a little longer. " Time was a matter that students had to consider when they got married. Some found they had to rearrange their sched- ules. " I became an alumnus in my sorority and dropped from three groups to one, " Becky Shipley said. " 1 was always run- ning around doing stuff and I usually let my projects and things wait until the last minute. " Time became easier to handle for some students. They found marriage gave them more time to get things done. " Any other year it seemed like I didn ' t have time to study and do all of my activities. " Bud Gustin said. " On campus there were a lot more activities that took time, plus I had to make time to spend with Glenda. It just seemed easier after I was married. " Deciding how to split household chores was a consideration of the couples. Some split it evenly, while oth- ers did not. " Becky did most of the work in the house, " Adam Shipley said. " I did stuff every now and then. I washed my work uniforms and occasionally washed a load of towels or something. Sometimes 1 would throw dishes in the dishwasher, and I vacuumed about once a month. " Married couples also worried about finances, and being independent from their families was important. " Our families were very supportive of our decision to get married and we were glad that they didn ' t have to help us with money. " Bud Gustin said. " We had a couple of scholarships that helped us out, but we stood on our own. " Some married students found that their friendships underwent change. Friends treated them differently than they had when they were single. " When I got married my friends stopped talking about parties and stuff like that around me because they felt really awkward, " — — Becky Shipley said. Despite the dif- ficulties of being a married student, there were also re- wards to being married. " Everyone said that the first year of marriage would be the hardest, " Glenda Gustin said. " But it was actually a nice " time and there really weren ' t any diffi- culties. " Married students found that they were happy with their situations, and were glad they had walked down the aisle. -Jfaifer G thercole " Our families were very supportive of our decision to get mar- ried, " Bud Gustin said. Married Students 27 Coming together, students unite to show spirit in reek Week 66¥9, ' Iin sure my face in a pie was pretty memorable, " Heather Voss said. Coupled with the de- sire to have fun while at the same time champion- ing various civic organi- zations, Greek Week be- gan. With the theme " No Matter the Letters, We Are All Greek Together, " the week promised to be one of the most rewarding Panhellenic activities of the year. " This was our time to set aside when all of us could collectively come together in one accord and show Greek unity, " Jonathan Phillips of Alpha Phi Alpha said. Under the direction of co-chairs Kristin Thompson and Pat McGinnis, the week began with some unique opening activities. Amidst songs sisters sang of their letters ' heritage and fraternity chants denouncing their brothers in good fun, the festivities got underway. In opening day events like the chariot race, fraternity teams were challenged to pull a chariot device around a course and finish the fastest in their heat while at the same time carrying a sorority mem- ber. Four heats were held, and a total of 16 men from each fraternity ran. " The chariot race seemed to be the most competitive of all the events, " Phillips said. " It called for brute strength and endurance because they had to run pulling a girl on a chariot. " Participants in the tricycle race were forced to revert to the days of their childhood and maneuver the trike around a circle while also performing - other activities. " I had to go halfway around the circle, stop, and find a piece of gum inside a whip cream pie, " Heather Voss of Delta Zeta said. " I ' m sure my face in a pie was pretty memorable. " The kickoff ended with the Greek Sing, a chance for each Greek organiza- tion to salute their brothers and sisters through catchy songs. " One of my brothers took our frater- nity song and changed the words around to include all the names of the sororities, " Alpha Phi Alpha member Maurice Tay- lor said. " It was easy for us to learn, and gave it an unique edge. " Sunny weather allowed Tuesday ' s games to continue without a hitch. Sun- rise Park was the center of competitive action as softball and volleyball wars were waged. Elsewhere in the commu- nity Greeks became involved in Project Earth exercises by planting trees, flowers and shrubbery. Passers-by on the Maryville square saw members of all the organizations rocking in chairs or asking motorists to donate to Camp Quality, a summer camp for children with cancer. By the end of the week, more than $ 1 ,600 had been raised. " Can you canoe? " Many Greeks were confronted with this question on Wednesday when the great canoe race got underway. Racing across Colden Pond may not have been maneuvering white waters, but to some it proved to be equally as challenging. More games such as the orange-passing relay race, five- legged race and shuttle race were held to continue to ignite the spirit the Greeks were striving to maintain and hoped to demonstrate to other members of their Northwest family. Greek Week wrapped up on Thursday with a community-wide clean-up. The Greeks rolled up their sleeves and set to work to help maintain not only their cam- pus, but the community as well. Thursday evening was the annual awards banquet. Tau Kappa Epsilon and Delta Zeta were distinguished as the overall most Greek participation award. — continued Delta Sigma Phi ' s Phil Rodgers and Nathan Hall try to pull ahead of Alpha Kappa Lambda ' s Kevin Heese and Stephen King in the canoe race.

In a separate award, Drs. Roy and Kathie Leeper, professors of speech and sponsors of Phi Sigma Kappa were named Outstanding Advisers of the year. Participants in the games felt the work and fun they had was a way for each to prove that, " No Matter The Letters, We Are All Greek Together, " was truly the best statement about the bonds they had formed throughout the school year. The activities invited new interests in the Panhellenic societies. " When outsiders saw us, they saw our spirit and vitality, " Jen Hupka of Alpha Sigma Alpha said. " Greek spirit really shone through and could be a great ice- breaker for anyone interested. Even though the week was full of competition between the organizations, the brothers and sisters of all the groups relished the tiine they had spent promot- ing " Greekhood " together at Northwest. — Lisa Rk! zk GREEK AWARDS OVERALL AWARDS Outstanding Greek Sponsor Roy and Kathy Leeper, Phi Sigma Kappa Outstanding Greek Woman Kristin Tiiompson, Phi Mu Outstanding Greek Man Byron WilUs, Sigma Phi Epsilon Outstanding Sorority President Aimee Chadwick, Delta Zeta Outstanding Fraternity President David Kirchhoefer, Sigma Phi Epsilon Outstanding Greek Organization Sigma Sigma Sigma Sigma Phi Epsilon Most Greek Participation Tau Kappa Epsilon Delta Zeta GREEK SING Most Spirited Tau Kappa Epsilon Delta Zeta Most Creative Delta Chi GREEK GAMES Tricycle Race Sigma Sigma Sigma Chariot Race Alpha Kappa Lambda Overall Winner of Greek Games Alpha Sigma Alpha Tau Kappa Epsilon 30 Greek Week Delta Zeta Wendi Ides participates in the orange-passing relay The Week gave (ireeks an opportunity to interact through child-like games.

Battling for piihlic offices leads to ig Chan ges THE 1W2PRESIDEN- tial electicin began with many hopefuls bidding lor the White House, but out of the scramble emerged three candidates and a wild race tor the presidency began. Republican George Bush, Democrat Bill Clinton and Independent Ross Perot battled it out as the American people tried to decide who would be the best com- mander in chief. For the past three elections the Repub- lican Party held onto the White House without ever having any serious compe- tition from the Democrats, but the 1992 election was different as the Democrats campaigned hard and the American people expressed their desire for change. In an effort to determine who would be president for the next four years, students found themselves taking a stand for their favorite candidate. Clinton was a relatively young nomi- nee who seemed to capture the imagina- tions of many students. His fresh sound- ing ideas, some supporters thought, were a solution to Bush ' s lack of attention to the American people. " The whole atmosphere of the election seemed to be different, " Clinton sup- porter Kelli Harrison said. " I really ad- mired Clinton ' s humility. Not lying about the thmgs in his past made him much more trustworthy than Bush was for me. " Not all students found themselves in support of Clinton, however. There were also plenty of Bush supporters to he found on campus. " George Bush was just the best man for the job. " Chad Hackman. president of the College Republicans, said. " He was ex- peiienced and he had a wonderful foreign policy record. Schwarzkopf called him one of the top 10 commanders in chief of all time. Clinton ' s programs just wouldn ' t work. A bad economy was very discouraging, but Bush had the leader- ship experience and strength of character to pull us out of the recession. Clinton was wishy-washy and evasive. " Perot supporters on campus seemed to be scarce, but those who backed the Texan did so because they believed in his simple, straight-forward principles. " 1 liked Perot becau.se he related to the average person, " Lance Dorrel said. " He came across as the kind of guy you could find in small-town America and he didn ' t take part in all the mud-slinging. I just liked him the best. " Whatever their views, students were beginning to find their voice in American politics. In October. Student Senate held voter registration in the Spanish Den. Two hundred thirty-nine students regis- tered to vote for the first time and many more picked up absentee ballots.

Perot did not win any electoral votes, but did win a larger share -continued Elections 33 Bi g Chan ges 441 -continued of the vote than any other independent candidate in this century. Time magazine stated that Clinton found favor with most demographic groups, including men and women; blacks and Hispanics; every age group from 18 to 29 to over 60; and every income group under $50,000 a year. Bush won the votes of Asians and Protes- tants. Clinton ' s victory was also considered a personal victory by those who sup- ported him and put time and effort into his campaign. They were happy with the large number of voters. " I was very happy with the results of the election, and was very optimistic about the whole thing, " Dr. James Eiswert, professorof philosophy , said. " I was pleased about the increa.sed turnout of voters, especially statewide. It seemed people were beginning to take interest in the election process. " On the state level, many Northwest Mis- sourians were dis- appointed to see Missouri State Representative Everett Brown lose his office to Republican Sam Graves. Brown served in the House for 15 years and fought hard for North- west. " Everett Brov n had a say about each and every dollar spent in the area of transportation and education, " Dr. Richard Fulton, profes- sor of government, said. " Without Brown, Northwest didn ' t have an impor- tant voice at this crucial point. Brown had ' I was very happy with the results of the elec- tion, " Dr. James Eiswert said. seniority and was influential, and was also a good friend of Bob Griffin, the Speaker ofthe House. Gravesjust had no key position and no say in what would happen. " Graves did find support in Maryville by those who believed he cared about his job and about Missourians. " I thought we were very fortunate to have such a fine, bright, genuinely caring man who would represent us in the 4th District, " Graves ' campaign manager, Picki Pierce said. In an effort to make students more aware of state politics, contenders in the Missouri Congressional race visited Northwest. Tom Coleman, who ran for re-election in Missouri ' s 6th Congressional District visited campus Oct. 26. Coleman met with students and talked to them about his race and where he stood on the issues. Much to the surprise of Coleman and his supporters, his re-election efforts fell short and he was defeated in the race by Democrat Pat Danner, who thanked sup- porters for their vote by visiting Maryville Nov. 12 with a camera crew from the television show " CBS This Morning. " U.S. Senator Kit Bond also paid a visit to Maryville Oct. 16. Rather than cam- paigning. Bond spoke in a press confer- ence about building an ethanol produc- tion facility in northern Missouri and about the benefits ethanol would bring to area farmers. Bond ' s ideas and campaign efforts paid off as he defeated his opponent, Jerri Rothman-Serot, for a seat in the U.S. Senate. Although the election involved a lot of mud-slinging and name calling, the hard work of the candidates paid off and Americans took an active interest in choosing the leaders of their country.

Elections 35 Students take a stand and rally around f H Saving the human race 1 and exercising the power to 1 I vote were Just two of the • causes students became in- t volved in. As students be- M gan to reahze the future was r now, many chose a cause and raUied around it. One such cause was the environment. Student Senate participated by celebrat- ing Earth Day 1992 with a week ' s worth of activities. John Holcomb, Student Senate vice president for environmental affairs, was in charge of the celebration. Although many activities were planned for the week, the event with the biggest turnout was a community alumi- num can collecting contest. Many orga- nizations on campus and in Maryville participated and Tau Kappa Epsilon won the contest, walking away with $500 in prize money. " As of Jan.l, 1993 the Maryville landfill would not accept aluminum or plastic material, " Holcomb said. " It was an incentive for people to recycle. " ____ _ 1992 was also the year of elections. A political move- ment hit Northwest as stu- dents were given the opportu- nity to register to vote on cam- pus in October. The Student Senate Policies Committee sponsored a registration drive and offered students informa- tion on absentee voting. The Northwest Missourian also helped by reporting how voter registration was done and how to go about getting an absentee ballot. — — According to John Zimmerman, Nodaway County clerk, many students felt intimidated by the registering process and were unsure how to go about voting by absentee ballot. " It took less than 5 minutes of your ' Tliey needed to know that liaving sex could Idn them, " Patrick Malioiiey said. day, " Zimmerman said. " It was just a matter of taking the time and doing it. " Others in the University community had a different point of view. " Maybe their (college students ) sense of responsibility had not been developed yet, " Robert Dewhirst, professor of gov- ernment, said in an article in the Missou- rian. " They had the most at stake. They had most of their lives ahead of them, and they would have to live with decisions their leader made in the next four years. " An issue that was closer to home than many people realized was Acquired Im- munodeficiency Syndrome or AIDS. As of Oct. 1992, there were 2,986 AIDS cases reported in the state of Missouri. Bob Power, HIV AIDS education co- ordinator for the Heartland Red Cross, and Northwest alumnus, spoke to mem- bers of student publications about the AIDS virus, how to educate people along and the importance of responsible report- ing. " The disease did not know labels, " Power said. " It did not know the differ- ence between a homosexual, bisexual, heterosexual, man, woman, child, white, black or Hispanic. AIDS was not a homo- sexual disease. " A student organization. Northwest Students Concerned About AIDS, was formed to help educate students about AIDS and safe sex. " We started the organization because no one on campus seemed to want to discuss the issue, " Patrick Mahoney, one of the founders of NSCA said. " College students were sexually active. They needed to know that having sex could kill them. " The environment, politics and AIDS were only a few of the causes students became involved in throughout the year. No matter the cause, students took an active role in making their world better. -Traii Tonu ' ' Amanda Endicott and Amber Smith take part in a recy- cling fair at the Northside Mall.

College was a very different world, and adjust- ing to new surroundings was difficult for most stu- dents. Learning to share a small living space, as in the residence halls, was sometimes difficult to do. Many roommates had problems get- ting used to each other initially, but some continued to have problems throughout the semester. Although many did find great roommates, some were stuck in a situation they were desperate to escape from. " My roommate was a great person, but we just had two totally different lifestyles, two totally different sleeping habits and two totally different sched- ules, " Christy Christiansen said. " We got along okay, but it tended to make things difficult. We often got on each others nerves. " Such roommate problems were often difficult to handle. The biggest problem most had with their roommates was that _ they were too visible. " My roommate was always in the room. " Susan Shipley said. " It would have been nice to have had some privacy, but that was something 1 tried to learn to deal with. " On the other side of the coin, there were many who were only around once in a great while. Some had room- mates that were always in a girlfriend ' s, boyfriend ' s or neighbor ' s room. " My roommate was hardly _ ever around, " Connie Posey said. " She was always studying in some- one else ' s room, at some party, or hang- ing out with her friends. I saw her only when she came in to crash or get ready for classes. At times it was as though she was invisible. " Many times these differences in lifestyles caused roommates to become enemies. Drastic measures often re- sulted, forcing changes in habits to occur. Some roommates went past the point of no return and decided it was best to move out. " I tried to talk to my roommate about her odd waking and sleeping habits, but she felt offended, " Posey said. " After all, it was her room, too. So I decided it was best that I moved out and in with some- one I felt more in-synch with. " Many types of roommate problems occured when people from different backgrounds ventured into the world of college independence. " It was hard for me to get used to living with my roommate simply because she spoke no English, " Tisha Tapia said. " When I had a problem and needed to talk to her, I had trouble. She seemed as if she despised me from day one, so I decided the best thing for me to do would be to move out and get a private room. " Sometimes it was not necessarily spe- cific problems that roommates faced; it was simply differences in personalities. " My roommate was very nice, but she was nothing like me, " Christiansen said. " I knew my staying up late at night both- ered her. That was just me, though. It was hard to live with her. Some people were just not compatible. " Although sometimes problems worked themselves out, many times an invisible or too visible roommate actu- ally did do a disappearing act by moving out. Petty disagreements often led to huge fights and slobs who lived with tidy people rarely found themselves chang- ing. Whether or not roommate problems were prevalent, a great roommate was something most every student wished for. — Jenivifer Maho ei While some room- mates were always at home, others seemed to be just a blur, rarely ever staying home for long. Finding roommates that were compatible was not always easy.

They came to col- lege to seek Aisdom and education, but the cost ot that wisdom and education became outrageously expen- si e. Budget problems hit many in a hard way. Between balancing difficult classes, long hours of homework and sometimes a job, coping with a tight budget was difficult. Students did a variety of things to deal with an empty wallet. Many made the choice to move off campus in hopes of saving some money. " Living off campus was so inuch more economical than livinge)n, " Molly Groen said. " Trying to live day-by-day and pay my bills was difficult, but it was worth it to me to get away from residence hall living. " Students who chose to live off cainpus faced less expensive food and board, but most found that they were forced to fend for themselves in their financial situa- tions. Many students, due to lack of money, were forced to find employment either on campus or in Maryville. Jobs were few and far between, and those who did find jobs were often a lucky few. " I had to try to find a job at the begin- ning of the year, " Groen said. " 1 was employed with work study at Millikan Hall ' s front desk. I worked about eight hours a week to afford to go to school. " On-campus living versus off-campus living was a big component to budgeting. For most students, it was indeed cheaper to live off campus. " Moving off campus was my decision not only because I liked having my pri- vacy, but because it was cheaper, " Hawkeye Wilson said. Some students had budgeting prob- lems because of the way they spent their money at the beginning of the school sear. Some spent too much on material things, socializing and food. " Many students spent too much money at the beginning of the year, " Matt Barry said. " Even I felt as if there were too many chances to blow my money. " When all else seemed lost, students ended up turning to what they knew best — home. Most could attest to the fact that whenever they had financial prob- lems, mom and dad were usually the first ones to turn to. " Whenever I had money problems I called my mom and dad, " Leigh Thiesen said. " Towards the end of the semester, though, my phone bill got so high that the University disconnected my phone ser- vice. " Mom and dad often supplied the extra money and food students needed to get by. Students often made the journey home on weekends and holidays to get food and money from parents Although many — — students found that getting things from parents was easy, some found out otherwise. Some students found that they could not turn to parents for prob- lems with their budgets. Families often had to send more than one child to college, forcing some students to work weekends and holidays at a job back home just to afford necessities. The money earned from a part-time job often went to pay for school bills. -continued " Whenever I had money prohlenis, I called my mom and dad, " Leigh Theisen. Student Budgets 41 Bud gets " Scrounging together enough money to pay my phone bill, printing bills or buy stamps to send a letter was difficult, " Michele Barry said. " I would have asked my parents for money if they could have afforded it, but they could not. With my brother Matt here at the same school, and my younger sister at a community college back home, my parents really did not have the extra money to give to us. What little money they did have was spent on Matt ' s rent if he was short, some sudden car repair, or doctor bills when we got sick. " For many students, the transition into college life was the first time they had to provide for themselves. Also, learning how to balance a checkbook for the first time could have been scary. " I wished that the University had of- fered some sort of program so that stu- dents could have learned how to manage their money instead of just blowing it. " Thiesen said. " That way. I thinight that I would have been able to save my money " more efficiently. " Credit cards also served as a big budget problem for students. They were usually easy for students to get. Availability of funds was perhaps w hat attracted most students to in- vesting in credit cards, but many times credit card companies ended " " " up enticing many students into something they could not control. Using a credit card was an easy way to purchase things that students may have needed or wanted, but overspending sometimes led to worse financial difficul- ties than the student had before. " Students spent too much money at the begui- ning of tlie year, " Matt Barry said. ■ " I knew a lot of people who got their first credit cards when they got to col- lege, " Michele Barry said. " They often became obsessed with using their credit cards, charging everything they could on it. That often led to problems that were not even necessary. I had my own bud- geting problems without owning one of those plastic cards. " Students were also faced with the problems of dating on a tight budget. Just having fun was difficult for many to afford. Many could not spare the money to go out on dates and often had problems trying to distinguish between money to be used for fun and money that needed to be saved. " I could only afford to go out one or two times a week, " Groen said. " When I did go out, I had to watch what I spent money on. " When it came to buying groceries, stu- dents had to determine what they would be eating before food was purchased. The price of groceries caused many students to budget bills carefully. Even on-cam- pus residents found themselves clipping coupons to save money. " My roommate and I liked having food in our rooms when we got hungry, so we often found ourselves clipping cou- pons, " Barry said. Although budgeting problems were difficult to deal with, students realized that they were not alone in their money deficiencies. " Most students had financial problems at college simply because it was expen- sive, " Barry said. It seemed that almost everyone was faced with a budgeting problem, whether it was credit card bills mounting up, phone bills going unpaid, or simply liv- ing on peanut butter and crackers. Living on a college budget became an experi- ence not to be forgotten. — .Ikxmkkk M ii »ki !- i A R .A employee Suzanne Keller fin- ishes refilling the orange juice ma- chine in the Deli.

Though it hadn ' t hap- pened for quite awhile, (For me it was equivalent to the second coming) I thought I could probably still conduct myself in a rela- tively civil manner with the opposite sex. Opportunity arose on a weekend night when I headed to The Outback to meet up with Steve Rhodes, a guy I had known for some time, but had never really known. Soon though, I would get the chance when I finally spotted him and he saw me, smiled, and got up to come toward my table. The misery of being alone was gone, only now I had no idea what in the hell I was going to say. ■ ' Hi Miss Renze, how you doing? " he said with this huge smile. Like all red-blooded American fe- males I was trying to think of something coy, or at least unique to retort. All I could muster was " Fine. " We exchanged small talk and thank- fully the D.J. let loose with some Snap and I was saved. He asked if Fd be interested in a dance, and from that point on I felt like maybe this was going to be all right. Things were going well and we were doing that glance-exchange game. Well, groovy. Finally he leaned over and asked if I wanted a beer, and con- fided in me that although getting to know each other a little better was great, it was an excuse to get off the floor. Apparently he had a rhythm-pho- bia and was trying to hide it. Since the dance idea wasn ' t going to fly again, (at least not until Fd gotten him a little liquored). I suggested we head next door and check out the crowd at The Palms. He, with a huge sigh of relief, agreed. Upon entering, Steve handed me a He Said A DATE. It ' ll happen. Of course so will a complete solar eclipse, every 75 years. Although my interaction with the opposite .sex was a bit more frequent than that, the fact of the matter was it had been quite some time since I had " stepped out " with a young lady. Maybe that was why I was sweating bullets as I sat at a secluded table at the Outback bar where I was to meet one Lisa Renze for a evening of fun and frivolity. I was beginning to think she didn ' t show as I .scanned my surround- ings, but then spotted her at a table across the room among the dozens of merrymakers milling about. Realizing how pathetic I must look seated at a table alone, I crossed the crowded room to the table where Lisa was seated. " Hey. hey Miss Renze, how ya doin? " 1 said, silently praising the pow- ers that be that the knots in my vocal cords loosened long enough for me to utter my greeting. " Fine, " she responded with a smile. " Well good, good, so . . ., " and one of the many evening ' s nonsensical con- versations was underway. And then it happened. The D.J. in the bar ' s lower level announced a popular song and I asked Lisa if she would like to dance. For most this would seem natural enough, but for myself, who was born with an acute rhythm defi- ciency, it was social suicide. Nevertheless, I had committed my- self, so rather than coming up suddenly lame I did the next best thing and took the first opportunity to escape the floor by asking Lisa if she would like a drink. Thankfully she agreed, and after ex- changing some more pleasantries over our fresh beverage I decided not to risk having to dance again and suggested we move on to the Palms. -continued A night out at the bar can be inter- preted entirely dif- ferent bv the oppo- site sex.

" What have you got there, " he asked upon return. " To tell you the truth, I don " t remem- ber. I did hear it ' s awfully tasty, " I said. He looked at me with extreme skepti- cism, but despite his apprehension he grabbed the shot and downed it before the chance could escape him. I couldn ' t help but laugh, even though he was trying desperately to keep his cool about him as his mouth was burning off. I offered him another drink and sug- gested we move on. The Pub right up the road was the obvious choice. We hustled into the warmth of the bar and were greeted by other Friday celebrators. Again we got a drink and headed to the pool room. " How about some pool, " Steve said. " I happen to be somewhat experienced in the game, even if I do say. " I knew it. All men think they ' re poolsharks or Tom Cruise in " The Color of Money " or something. Sicken- ing. I agreed to his little challenge, but I neglected to tell him I grew up with a pool table in my basement. Needless to say, I wasn ' t too bad either. " Well, I ' ll try to keep up uith you, " I said. " Go easy on me this first one. will you? " " Not a problem, " he replied. The game was on and this poor fool had no idea what he was about to get himself into. " How about making things interest- ing, " I asked. I figured what the hell? If he thinks he ' s as good as what he says, a small wager wouldn ' t be a problem. " How about placing a small bet on the outcome. " I said. " Like who buys the rest of the drinks tonight and where. " " Fine with me, " he said. " I want to see He Said When we arrived I gave Lisa some cash to buy drinks and then hastily excused myself so that I could make use of the porcelain convenience. Upon my return I cheerfully asked Lisa what she had bought. " I don ' t remember, you ' ll have to try it to find out, " she shrugged. Normally I would have been quite skeptical about such a situation, but in the presence of such a fetching young lady, a sudden eruption of the ever- present male hormones saw me down- ing the mystery beverage in three gulps. SHAZAM! I screamed silently, as the red-hot brew raced down my throat. Lisa exploded with laughter. I de- cided that 1 liked her laugh, but would try to find some less painful manner of doing so at our next stop. The Pub. Upon entering The Pub, we ordered a drink and found an empty table at which we could chat. " Hey, lady, how about a game of pool, " I asked suddenly. " Sure, " she said with a smile. " Now before we get started I just want to warn you that I happen to be somewhat skilled in the game, " I said as I swaggered over to select a pool cue. Big lie. Well, lie was an ugly word. Indeed, as a cartoon- watching, polyes- ter-wearing lad of 5 I could clean the table on my Fisher-Price Billiards set. " Lll try to keep up, " she said as she selected her own cue. I might have actually had her con- vinced that I was proficient in the game, that is until I tried to chalk the wrong end of the cue. " So, would you care to place a wager on the outcome, " she said. The correct answer to this would of course had been " no, " but a combina- tion of alcohol and traditional male ego found me accepting her challenge. -continued Celebrating the end of their rinals, Carla Bolles and Jen Nelson discuss their test over a beer at The Palms.

Bars 47 Interpreted She Said what ' s going on at the Sports Page. " The game progressed at a pretty even pace. It wasn ' t until down to the end that things started getting out of hand. All that poor boy could do was stand back and watch as I called them, sunk them and beat him. " ' What was that about the Sports Page? " I questioned. " I know how much you LOVE country music, I rather thought we could visit Molly ' s. " Truly, he looked defeated. Not only had he been publicly humiliated by a female but he would be forced to endure more dancing. This time it was country dancing and that was the best of all. Steve hated any and all music that had even a hint of Southern charm to it. This knowledge made the victory even sweeter. Across the square to Molly " s we went. It was well past the witching hour and before long the adventure would end. Not, however, until we had had the last dance — Garth Brooks style. After I ' d finally been deposited on my doorstep it occurred to me for the first time what a truly great purpose the bars can serve if you look past the surface. Sure there ' s the regulars who always come in and order the same drink. There ' s the idiots that try to prove themselves and end up yacking all over the floor. But, there ' s a lot more, espe- cially in a town this size. The bars in Maryville are a great place to go un- wind and rela.K. The owners are always friendly and after only one or two stops, many know you by name — that ' s cus- tomer service. Best of all, there may come a time when someone you hardly know ends up being a terrific friend, regardless of if there ' s never anything more, there ' s always the chance there will be. Not bad for a Friday night in the " Ville, don ' tcha think? — IJsa Renze He Said " Ok, " she said. " How about if the winner gets to pick where we go ne.xt and what we drink? " And so the game began. Actually I was able to hold my own for the first couple of shots. However, my hopes were quickly dashed as my companion tired of the pace of play and decided to run the table, ala Minnesota Fats. Quick to claim the spoils of victory she suggested we go to Molly ' s where a local country band was playing. Not in a million years would I have guessed such a devious mind lurked behind those bright blue eyes and allur- ing smile. Using information garnered from our conversations before we even met for this evening she had contrived a plan that would not only force me to reveal my rythmn deficiency again, but also endure country music. Not being a poor loser, however, I opted to agree to Lisa ' s terms and we proceeded to Molly ' s. Molly ' s marked the first time all evening I felt totally out of my element. Everyone was having a knee-slappin, boot-stompin good time as a scene straight out of Bonanza unfolded before me. My only consulation was that it was well after midnight and I thought I might even avoid having to dance. However, when the band announced the last dance, I remained a good sport. Thankfully it was a slow song and all I had to do was stagger around, so it actually wasn ' t so bad. And so, sadly, the evening drew to a close. I regretted that we did not get to see more of the bars, but thought that would give me an excuse to request the company of this particular young lady on another occasion. Even if our paths failed to meet a second time, I at the very least, had a great story to tell. — Sieve Rhodes Outback D.J.

" I went there because the people that I hung out w ith went there and they offered 50 cent mugs. " The Pub had other daily specials such as $2 and $. pitchers on Friday and Saturday. It also ottered a bartender ' s choice held on Tuesday and Thursday. Another popular place to parly was The Outback. They offered 32 ounce beers for S I on Mondav. and Tuesday brought progressive pitchers which increased in value by 25 cents each half-hour. Friday nights were all-you- could drink for $3 nights and Saturday was over under night with either a DJ or a band. " My favorite bar was The Outback because 1 could dance and meet up with friends that were not 2 1 on over under nights, " Amy Wright said. Happy hour was held daily at The Palms from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and 25 cents off was given on all drinks. On Fridays, free pizza was offered along with happy hour. Tuesday night brought 25 cent draws from 9 p.m. to midnight. There were many reasons students ventured to the bars besides the drink specials. " Usually 1 got a few friends together and went on Friday and Saturday because it was the end of the week, " Nate Custer said. For some people, going to the bar for drink specials was not a concern. " I didn ' t really care about the specials, " Kevin Malick said. " Beer was the same wherever you went. " Bars in Maryville provided an escape for older students from the pressures of school.

On campus there were many different facilities that studentscould use forexer- cise purposes. Lamkin Gym had the track and basketball hoops on the second floor and the Fitness Center and the varsity weight room on the first floor. " I thought it had a lot to offer because people could go running, play racquet- ball and do about anything you could think of, " Beaumont said. " I thought they had something to offer everyone. " If a student did not use one of the weight rooms at Lamkin Gym most resi- dence halls had their own facilities that were accessible to those students who wanted to do some sort of exercise w ith- out leasing their halK. " I didn ' t like to do weight training, " IJsa Gasiorow ski said. " I used the w eight room in Hudson Hall for the treadmill during the w inter months. I thought it was good to have weight rooms in the resi- dence hall so I didn ' t have to walk across campus in the middle of the night. " Exercise at the Robert P.

" Water aerobics was good because they were less strenuous on the joints, " Michelle Kliegl said. " The |iarticipation was tor anyone from 16 to ( 5 and it was good aerobic endurance. It toned muscles, everybody enjoyed it and 1 thought everyone got satisfaction. " Aerobics was another popular exercise among students and many residence halls offered aerobics as a floor activity. Millikan Hall offered aerobics free of charge to anyone on or off campus Mon- day thru Thursday. Tiffany Wade taught the classes on a volunteer basis and com- bined high and low impact aerobics, stretching, crunches (200 to 2. 0) and the Buns of Steel workout tape. " I found out there was a need for an instructor, " Wade said. " ,So I had the chance to design my own workouts. " Aside from exercising, students stayed lit through following a somewhat healthy diet. Nutritious foods could be the key to finding much-needed energy.

" It was cheap and convenient since it was right on campus.

Many were as far as S.OOO miles away from home and financiallv it was impos- sible for them to go home. Gordon Fernando, a Malaysian stu- dent, was the president ol International Students Organization. His house be- came the hub of ISO activity and was often tilled with people from all over the world on weekends. " We had an international Bible study on Friday evenings. " Fernando said. " Then we ' d all get together and cook something special. " Weekend meals consisted of foods from their homelands and students from different cultures ___ _ prepared their fa- vorite dish. After eating, they would gather and tell sto- ries about their homes and about their experiences at Northwest. W e e k e n d e r s were a special breed. Their real homes might have been somewhere in northwest Iowa, or even the islands - ■ — — of Japan, but their lives were based in Maryville. These students did not pack up and run home every weekend, but instead stayed in a town they could call home.

According to Warren Gose, vice president for finance, construction was set to begin sometime between June and July. " Both Lamkin Gym and Roberta Hall were scheduled to be closed the day after school closed in May, " Gose said. At a cost of $3.5 million, major repairs were planned for Roberta, such as adding air conditioning, new wiring and plumb- ing. It was also planned to add walls, with slight changes to some of the rooms and to the bathrooms. According to Gose, Roberta would be closed for about one year and in the meantime, students who normally re- sided in Roberta would be housed else- where on campus or in Maryville. Although some of the women from Roberta chose to relocate off campus, many others wanted to find a home on campus where they could have a living arrangement similar to the one they had in Roberta. " Some of the girls would be living off campus, but for those of us who wanted to stay said ' ' campus, we were trying to find a place where we could all — . — be together, " Kelli Mahoney, housing chairman for Alpha Sigma Al- pha, said. With all the plans for these repairs to Roberta, many people were concerned about where funding for the project would come from. According to Dr. David Slater, presi- dent of Faculty Senate, money for the repairs would come out of a building budget. Bonds would be issued, which meant the University would be borrow- ing money. The bonds would be put out on the market for people to bid on and would be paid off in about 20 years through an increase in student fees for future Roberta residents. " When the dorm has been renovated and opened up again, the student fees to live in that dorm would increase to pay for the interest on the bonds, " Slater said. " This would not effect students living in other dorms, although fees would prob- ably be creeping up all over campus any- way. " Lamkin Gym was another facility that was scheduled to receive renovations and a groundbreaking ceremony was held near the end of February to give the project an official kick-off. Plans for the facility included adding air conditioning, new fencing and ex- tending the building to the north. " Essentially what they were going to do to Lamkin Gym was extend it out about twice as long to the north, almost to the tennis courts, " Slater said. " They had been planning to put air conditioning in the building and provide a lot more space for students, rather than just for varsity players. " Expected cost for renovations to the gymnasium was projected at $5.5 million and would be paid for by each student as an addition to their student fees. Although there was some controversy surrounding these proje ' cts due to the high costs, many students supported the improvements and Roberta Hall and Lamkin Gym were expected to look bet- ter as well as be more comfortable and accessible to students.

It was there every day. every hour, almost every minute of a college student ' s ife and many students found they were able to alleviate stress through God. Whether it was through a weekly Bible study, Sunday morning church services or simply worshipping alone in a residence hall room, religion was often that one constant in students " ever- changing lives. Brian Sparks thought that having a per- sonal relationship with God helped him cope with the stresses of college life and being a newcomer to Northwest. " I felt like God called me to come here, even though it was so far away from home, " Sparks said. " Sometimes it was stressful, but I knew that through prayer I could talk to God and knew he had a purpose for me. " Shanygne Mortimore thought many students were trying to fill a void in their lives and Christ was her answer. Through her faith, Mortimore said she always _ _ found peace, even at the end of a stressful college day. " Parties and alcohol weren ' t going to fill the void in life, " Mortimore said. " For me only Christ could do that. With Christianity the good things were better and the bad things weren ' t so bad. " Michael Maher, Newman House director, thought being involved with a religious or- ganization helped many stu- dents find a network of people and friends they could trust. - — Maher said the Newman House tried to offer more programs than before with more student input. " Being active with religion could give you more direction with life, " Maher said. " Community between people was the key to happiness. " Danielle Macintosh stayed in tune with the Lord through singing with the Laura Street Baptist Church ' s choir " Highest Call. " Macintosh thought that involve- ment in a choir was special because it made her belief in God stronger. " It was a praise time during which we sang certain songs that reinforced my beliefs, " Macintosh said. " I always came out of rehearsal in a good mood because of the songs and the attitude of worship. " Co-director of the Wesley Center, Marjean Ehiers, said the Center tried to help students feel at home. The Center provided Sunday fellowship suppers and sponsored the Wesley Foundation Cel- ebration Team, a group that performed music at Wesley Center fellowships and other functions. They also offered coun- seling to assist students in need. " Our focus was to respond to the needs of students, whetherthey were Methodis t or other denommations, " Ehiers said. " We tried to do things that would suit their needs. " Kolaiah, Hebrew for " the voice of God, " was a drama and mime group that performed at various functions on cam- pus and in the Maryville area and Kevin Gullickson hoped the group would later perform in Omaha or Kansas City. He said their performances often made a difference to audiences. " We shared the gospel through the arts, " Gullickson said. " Kolaiah helped me to develop leadership, mime and drama skills and improve my relation- ship with Christ. " Religion could be found in many forms on campus, from music and drama to counseling students who had problems to cope with. No matter the activity, reli- gion was important and many students made sure that the Lord was included in their lives.

As FLUFFY SNOWFLAKES fell to the gioiind and the mounds of snow piled up, many stu- dents remembered winters of years past when the tempera- ture had reached the 7()s in February and students had been able to wear shorts be- fore spring break. But as this year ' s winter hit, the snow arrived in record amounts and students were too busy to reminisce; they were simply struggling not to fall down on their way to class. " This winter was really bad compared to last year, " Jason Fleming .said. " I was playing basketball outside in 70 degree weather last February. This year it was cold all over and there was a lot more snow. " With the bad weather came problems, especially those related to malfunction- ing vehicles. Students often found them- selves missing class because of cars that just would not start. " The weather was especially hard on ___ my car, " Jeannie Neit el sa id. " There were many times when it wouldn ' t start, which caused me to miss class. I nearly got frostbite on my hands twice while trying to fix it. " Walking proved to be a dan- gerous activity for some. Trudging to class through the snow and ice, many students _ _ found themselves in an unde- Ifiay sirable position. " I was walking to class on a really windy day, so I had my — head down to keep the wind off my face, " Fleming said. " All of a sudden I hit an air pocket and the wind stopped and I fell flat on my butt. " Driving conditions were also affected by the adverse weather. Some motorists found themselves involved in fender- benders that were unavoidable. " I was parked in front of President Hubbard ' s house and had been inside of Colden Hall for a couple of hours. When 1 came out a bunch of snow had fallen and there was a big mound of it on the left side of my car. As I pulled out over the mound and was getting ready to take off, a car came up over that hill and slid right into me. He tried to stop, but it was just too slick, " Christopher Kates said. Maryville Public Safety officials were surprised by the small number of acci- dents and problems caused by the snow. " During that afternoon snowfall in February there were a few accidents as people got out and started to go home, " Keith Wot)d, director of Maryville Pub- lic Safety, said. " But the next day people either began to figure out they couldn ' t get around in the weather or they saw the conditions and adjusted accordingly, be- cause there were very few accidents. " The cold and snow were felt through- out the state when in late February Kan- sas City received their largest snowfall in 63 years. Up to 15 inches fell in a 24-hour period in some areas and lightning ac- companied the snow. There was also a large amount of fog and clouds through- out the season. " The weather this winter was very un- usual, " Dr. Leland May, professor of English, said. " There was so much cloudiness and fog on top of the snow. Visibility for driving was bad and it was really a depressing time for many people. " Winter was a difficult season for many, but as spring break lurked around the comer, temperatures began to rise along with students ' spirits. The snow and cold began to fade away and students silently prayed that next winter would be warmer. ■v -A 58 Winter Miir.willi ' Public Safet helps Tammy Muudlin re- lONtT luT tar.

Whether it ■ B implied an alternative to ■ H women who were in M H trouble, or murder to 1 those who opposed it, abortion was very real. It outraged some; it saved others; it affected most everyone. The United States Supreme Court le- galized abortion upon demand in 1973 with Roe vs. Wade, triggering much po- litical and social discontent. Many hailed legalized abortion as a step forward for women, especially those involved in the equal rights movement. Other groups called legalized abortion a travesty and protested it heavily. According to the book Life Stories by D.C. Reardon, more than 16 million women have had abortions since 1973. This large number has brought about much awareness and controversy over the past 20 years, and many activist groups have made it their mission to _ __ _ either support or denounce abortion and its advocates. The argument over abortion has not been as vivid on cam- pus and in Marvyille as it was in some larger cities, but the issue still e.xisted in circles of conversation and church sanc- tuaries throughout town. " Being pro-choice, I be- lieved that it should be the woman ' s right to choose and that the government would ruin the name of America by telling a woman what to do, " . Michelle Rogers said. " I felt abortion became illegal, women tart going to back-alley butch- " I did uiider- staiKl diat alx rtion was very ti ' ainiiatic to women, ' ' Wke Peterson said. that if would ers. " On the other end of the spectrum, there were students who believed that abortion was not the answer for women with unplanned pregnancies. " My Christian beliefs helped me pick the pro-life side of the issue, " Shanygne Miller said. " I felt the government should have some control, but the woman really made the decision herself when she de- cided to have sex in the first place. She should have thought of the consequences then, before she got pregnant. " When it did come down to considering alternatives other than abortion, al- though the options were limited, all were viable. " I thought there were many ways a woman could get through an unplanned pregnancy other than by having an abor- tion, " Miller said. " There were always people wanting to adopt babies, and keeping the baby was also something to think about. I thought prayer was also important to these situations. " Both pro-life and pro-choice supporters often rallied to protest in larger cities such as Kansas City, Des Moines and Omaha. Although these protests made national news, many students thought these displays did not dissuade women from having abortions. If anything, they worsened the situation. " Those women going in there for an abortion had made up their minds. " Rogers said. " The pro-life people wouldn ' t change a significant number of minds by standing out there. The women were scared enough and seeing protest- ers only frightened them more. " Protesting was not always the most ef- fective way to deal with abortion. Some- times it was best to counsel women in trouble. " I thought the way abortion protestors worked was terrible, " Miller said. " All that did was enhance a woman ' s decision to have an abortion. I thought people should have been willing to take them -continued A bus stop bench outside of an Omaha abortion clinic advertises for the pro-life side of (he abortion issue.

' One side ol the abortion issue often overlooked was how it aft ' ected men. Abortion was seen as a woman ' s issue, and the way men felt was not often con- sidered because it was not the man who was pregnant. Howe er. men did ha e feelings when it came to abortion. " It was true that a man could not truly relate to what a pregnant woman was going through. " Mike Peterson said. " But 1 did understand that abortion was very traumatic to women. 1 thought that every woman should have a choice when it came to abortion, but I also thought that women who used abortion as a form of birth control were just using it as a scape- goat. They weren ' t taking responsibility for their actions. " The politics involved in abortion were often very heated, especially when it came down to the issue of the .Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade. Many thought that it was just a matter of time before abortion would once again be- come illegal and were concerned about the effects that would ha e on their na- tion and on women. " 1 thought that if the federal govern- ment made abortion illegal, it would have had detrimental effects on our soci- ety, " Peterson said. " Women w ould have continued to have abortions even if they were illegal, so the government might as well have made sure it stayed legal and safe. Government should have had very little control o er women in these situa- tions. " With the new administration in the White House, it did not seem as though abortion activists had to worry about their cause becoming illegal. On his sec- ond day in office. President Clinton lifted the " abortion gag rule, " a legislation that prohibited counselors in any federally funded clinic from offering inlormation about abortion lo women w ho came in for pregnancy counseling. " Our vision should be of an America w here abortion is safe and legal but rare, " Clinton said in a tele ised press confer- ence. •Abortion advocates and some students were pleased to see the " gag rule " lifted because they thought this law was unfair to women since it did not present all of their options to them. " Every woman should have been pre- sented with the same choices when they went to a clinic for help. " Rogers said. " If the woman did not w ant her child and w as forced to have it, she would have ended up resenting it in most cases. " Clinton also lifted restrictions on fetal tissue research, allowing the federal gov- ernment to begin funding medical re- search using aborted fetal tissue to help unlock the mysteries of diseases such as AIDS, diabetes, Parkinson ' s and Alzheimer ' s. Many people had opinions ,, _ _ on abortion and thought they knew what they would do if they were in that situation, but it was not that simple. The issue was much deeper than a rally outside a medical clinic or a lecture in a college classroom. .Abortion was a personal matter that had to be dealt with by each woman faced with an unplanned preg- nancy. No matter how many stu- dents took sides on the abor- tion issue, the real decision —i fell on the shoulders of the pregnant woman. Whether she saw abortion as the solutionorchosetocarry her child, it was up to her to make the final decision. — Jemfkr Gathercoi.k (. : I tlioii it die way alxjrtion protestors woriied was teirilile, " Sliaiiygne Miller sakl.

Graduation was jist iinuind the corner for many siLidenis and tiiiding a career u as the next rung on the lad- der oflite. With thechanging economy tiiiding a job be- came more and more ot achal- cnge. Northwest ' s Career Services tried to help future graduates find contacts to land a job in their field of study, by holding the Spring " 93 Career Day. Busi- nesses from all over the Midwest came with brochures and information for pro- .spective employees. Jonathan Vennerstrom was at the fair to represent the graduate program for the University of Nebraska ' s College of Pharmacy. The school was present in hopes of gaining enhanced visibility for their program. " We were here trying to recruit poten- tial graduate students for the College of Pharmacy. " Vennerstrom said. " Wc looked for people who would be poten- tially interested in an education in the area of pharmacy. " Having graduate schools present at Career Day proved to be useful to some students who attended. Ange Fisher w ent in order to speak w ith a graduate school that she would ha e liked to attend. " I had a school in mind that 1 w anted to go to and I knew they were supposed to be here, " Fisher said. " 1 put a lot of thought into coming and talking w ith the school. UnlortunatclN they did not make it. " Also present at Career Day were two branches of the military, the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Air Force. The armed forces were not necessarily looking for people to enlist, but rather to gain more visibility and recognition. " Career fairs were really important to us. " William Carter Jr. of the U.S. Air Force said. " We wanted to get the word out that we were still hiring. " An important thing students had to do before attending Career Day w as prepare a resume that highlightetl their activities, leadership positions and experience in a way that made them stand out from other students. " A good resume was ditfercni. It stood out, " Brent Gillmore of New ' ork Life said. " It could have been the paper color oreven the print style. It showed that they had been active in their communities, as well as doing well in academia. I would have looked for them being very in- volved in campus activities, showing leadership capabilities and what they had done w ith their lives so far. " Although Career Day was not de- signed to represent students from every major, some students used the event to make contacts for the future. Family Management major .Amanda Wessel was able to line up a possible internship through attending CareerDay. " Career Day may have helped me find an intern- ship for the sum- mer and enable me to find a chance to get experience in my field of study. " Wessel said. Students found Career Day ben- eficial in helping them make con- tacts w ith employ- ers and let them know what to ex- pect when they en- tered the working world. Even if students did not find their dream job through at- tending Career Day. the event did present many options, ideas and contacts for the future.

Couples find roiiiaiice redefined while at ill g From roses and romance to TV in the residence halls, the dating scene varied from couple to :ouple. Not knowing what to expect, some students were urprised by their dating encoun- ters. Romance was an importani element in dating to some. " My boyfriend fell bad about not being able to go to the park for our picnic because it was raining, so he impro- vised. " Clerissa Udey said. " He sur- prised me and set up the picnic in the room. There was a blanket on the floor, a picture he drew of the park, and he fixed the lamp to look like a fire. " Being romantic was not always the number one priority. Being yourself was also highly rated. " Dating at Northwest was more of a casual thing, " Curtis Heldstab said. " People were open-minded and it was easier to be yourself. " Traditional dating was not seen on cam- pus, especially when it came to paying for the date. Many women felt they should sometimes pick up the tab. " I did not think that a guy should have to pay for the whole date, " Amber Smith said. " I thought that each person should pay for their own way. Money did not come any easier for the guys than the girls. We were all in the same boat. " Students often spent time together in the residence halls instead of going out. " A usual date for me was to sit i n the person ' s room and watch movies and just talk and have a good time, " Dawn Milburn said. Most students chose to stick around campus due to a lack of entertainment options in Maryville. " The only things there were to do in Maryville was to go to the movies or go to Pagliai ' s to eat or go rollei-skatnig, " Anne Johnson said. Many students chose to take their dates to St. Joseph or Kansas City, making it an all-day event. " My boyfriend and 1 would go dow n to St. Joseph and go shopping, eat at Bo- nanza, and play miniature golf, " Corinne Roetman said. " Miniature golf was the greatest because v e always competed against each other and whoever won could gloat until the next match. " Road trips v .ere necessary for students who wanted more than what Maryville offered. " If 1 w anted to do any thing different on a date I would have to go out of town, " Mike Loper said. " Maryville did not have much to offer for the dating scene. " Dating also had its downfalls among students. " My worst date had to be when we would go back to my date ' s house and we would watch television the w hole night. " Mylane Morgan - — — — said. " I could do that in my own room. " No matter how good or bad the date turned out to be. responsible dating was some- thing students took seriously. " I was taught to be responsible for my date. " Justin Brandow said. " 1 always made sure " " " " my date would get home safe and sound, " Dating was a fact of life at Northwest. Whether the date was romantic, casual, or a disaster, students did not stop trying to find someone to spend time with. — Jknmfkr Spiegki. " I was taught to be responsible for my date, " Justin Brandow said. Dating 67 Adding excitement to the ' Ville, various performers did their best to entertain us. Giving us a change of pace in music, Kathy Mattea ' s spring concert was the first country- pop performance on campus and Color Me Badd ' s doo-wop sound differed from the usual rock concert. Steven Wright ' s off-the-wall humor caused many of us to give the usual thought a second thought and comedic magicians Penn Teller dazzled us with their daring and sometimes bizarre tricks. Proving that our students were just as tal- ented, those in the theater department enter- tained us with their productions of Story The- atre and A Company of Wayward Saints. Whatever the event, it seemed there was always something to keep us entertained. During the fall of Adam and Eve. the serpent, played by Jim Rush, intimidates Adam, played by Kent Andel.

These lecturers brought innovative ideas and urged us to make decisions about topics affecting the world around us. Dr. Jean Kilbourne spoke to students about the implications ad ertising and mass media had on society. ■ ' Alcohol was selling fantasies and advertising w as the way they were doing it. " Kilbourne said. Through a slide presentation she showed the devices advertisers used to sell products. Her message was a simple one; explicit advertising increased the rate of alcohol purchases. " The purpose of the media w as to sell us, the population, to companies, " she said. " We were the product. " Many students seemed to agree with Kilbourne, but some thought she overlooked a few things. " ,She did a good job presenting one side of the story, but she did not touch base on the media and how they felt about alcohol in adv ertising, " Jody Wilson said. The importance of a positive mental attitude was something that CBS sports broadcaster Bill Walton hoped to impress upon the minds of students and student athletes. " Make the most out of life; commit, " Walton said. ' " Be the type of person who goes out and gets what they want. " Walton ' s lecture was aimed primarily at stu- dents in sports and he offered words of advice for a successful life. " There were two keys lo success, " Walton said. " One, isualization. You had to live your career. Twii. commitment. You had ti) have the drive and abilitv to win every moment. Be will- ing to take the chance when it presented itself. " Hoping toconv nice students theiropinion was the right one. lidvvin Meese and Nadine Strossen took the stage to debate whether or not the criminal justice system in America was racist. " I felt that minorities were v ictimi ed by po- lice, " Strossen said. " There were two justice systems in our country-one for whites, and one very different one ft)r minorities. " Meese, former U.S. Attorney General under Ronald Reagan, strongly disagreed. " The facts that Ms. Strossen presented were simply not true, " Meese said. " There was no racism in our justice system. " Thedebate, moderated by David McLaughlin, associate professor of government, gave each speaker 15 minutes in which they were allowed to introduce their view and each gave a six minute rebuttal. A question and answer period immediately followed the debate. Some students had a hard time believing the facts the two provided. " I found it hard to believe either Meese or Strossen, " Dave Walden said. " They both fre- quently contradicted themselves. " Although Meese and Strossen eventually battled directly at each other, both gave the audience food for thought. Through the exploration of new ideas and facts the Distinguished Lecturer Series helped to provide learning experiences to mokl the minds of the future. .Jennifer Mahoney INFORMATIVE SPEAKERS LECTURER SERIES Distinguished Lecturer Series 71 Drastic Techniques.

Al- though the theater was not tilled to capacity, it did not seem to matter to the four actors and two actresses from Chicago. The Second City, which was compared to " Saturday Night Live, " eomhined unrelated acts from the talent tt) form the entire show. The scenes satired political, religious and everyday life and the group performed improvisational skits which enlisted the help of the audience. The actors took a quote from the audience and created their ov n skit. At another time, the audience v as in ited to throw different sen- tences to the actors w ho then made a story out of the various quotes. " I liked the improvisations the best. " Laura Moore said. " That w as different. It really helped in in ()l ing the audience. " The curtains opened with the funeral of a man who had passed away because his head became stuck in a Van Camps bean can. One skit that was a particular favorite involved Mary and Joseph isiting a counselor because of problems occuring within their marriage. The Second City originated in Chicago in 19. ' i9. Since the birth of The Second City, the group had traveled throughout the country put- ting on shows for a wide range of audiences, including numerous university tours. Their travels have taken them from California to Washington D.C., and past members that in- clude Dan Aykroyd, John Candy and Joan Riv- ers. Lisa Gasiorowski had the opportunity to see The Second City in a different atmosphere. " They were really good, " Gasiorowski said. " They were even better at Northwest because of the ditt ' erent college-oriented skits. " Although The Second City was a hit with Moore and Gasiorov ski. there were some who felt it was just adequate. Glen Jackson, speech instructor, said he felt that The Second City was entertaining, but somewhat slow. " Although the actors had really good skills. there were some slow parts and slow timing throughout the show, " Jackson said. Jackson thought the actors did well with the improvisations. " They were especially good with thinking and speaking when put on the spot, " Jackson said. Adding a tw ist to the show, actors claimed the audience was art and went into a different sec- tion of the audience while carrying out the scene. " I liked that, " Jackson said. " It was different. It might not have went over too well with some people who weren ' t too familiar with acting though. " Jackson ' s favorite scenario was when the col- lege professor threatened students w ith learning. Heclaimed it was a life or death situation. If the students did not learn, they were shot. This particular scene gave Jackson ideas for keeping his own classes interesting. " I am going to find a squirt gun, bring it to class, and shoot the students that sit in the back of the room and talk through class, " Jackson said. The Second City was once again a hit with students and faculty at Northwest. The Saturday Night Live-based show left students looking forward to their return. Kathy Hisjdon THE SECOND CITY The Second City 73 Autumn often brings subtle changes to campus. Winds blow cooler, leaves crunch and crackle under the steps of weary students, and the countdown to Christmas break begins. Then something comes along to give a much- needed break in the routine. With the announce- ment of the fall concert featuring Color Me Badd, the need for variety in entertainment in- tensified on campus. " We began looking for Color Me Badd in May, " Kim Carton, president of CAPs. said. " We were looking for something different. " The audience was smaller than expected, but the opening acts helped hype the crowd. Come- dian Jeff Valdez was first up, followed by The Party, who incorporated dance and harmony to provide a physical opener. After The Party performed, there was a brief intermission. Emcee Jonathan Phillips took the stage to prepare the audience for headliner Color Me Badd. " Repeat this after me. " Phillips said. " Let ' s get a beat going. We all came to par-tay! " The lights dimmed and fog enveloped the stage as a booming voice rang out, " Here they are Northwest Missouri. Color Me Badd! " Color Me Badd took the stage and excitement overcame the crowd. In their very first headlin- ing tour since being an opening band for Paula Abdul, Color Me Badd put on a show full of excitement. " We loved headlining. " Mark Calderon said. " With Paula ' s show, we did a lot of outside venues. " The Color Me Badd band agreed that opening a show out-of-doors was touch, and were pleased with the opportunity toentertain indoors on campus. " I was happy anytime we did a show inside, " percussionist Tre Balfour said. " We had the control then. " Halfway through the set. Color Me Badd slowed down the pace to do an a cappella version of Billy Joel ' s, " The Longest Time. " " I liked to do music from people we like. " Sam Watters said. " Writers like Joel were among the best in the world. " Throughout the show, the crowd remained entranced as the group performed their classic hits, " I Wanna Sex You Up, " and " I Adore Mi Amore. " Each member came from different cultural backgrounds, but Calderon, Watters, Bryan Abrams and Kevin Thornton came together to form a sleek, smooth vocal blend. When the group first started out, they gave impromptu concerts in their high school halls. " Our music came from our hearts, " Calderon said. " It was experiences we had gone through. " Color Me Badd finished the night with style, using lights, fog and almost every effect to leave the crowd wanting more. In a matter of hours, Lamkin Gym had gone from the center of action to deserted and cold. But in that time, some dreams were played out and new ones were made. " As long as a dream is positive, you can do it, " Watters said. " There will be obstacles, just re- member: Keep God on your side; keep practic- ing to become the best at your chosen craft; keep off drugs; don ' t let them bring you down; and remember, do it all for love.

The presentation, Story Theatre, in- cluded four different acts, each of which was a short fair tale adapted loosely from classic Brother " s Grimm children " s stories. The stories performed were: " The Little Peasant. " " " The Robber Bridegroom. ' " " " The Master Thief " and " The Golden Goose. " " They did a very good job, " Marsha Gates said. " Their performance was very fairy talish. " Although the fairy tale format would seem to appeal to children, these stories were directed to an older-age crowd. Northwest students fit the age group perfectly. The off-beat versions of the fairy tales were well accepted w ith Northv est students. The sar- casm portrayed in the fairy tales w as a new twist to an old tale. As the audience " s full attention was focused on the stories, the actors threw in bits of nK)dein-day humor. Of course there were villains with evil moustaches and maidens with helpless sighs, but with rude behaviors and sexual references, these fairy tales were far from children ' s stories. The humor was in very good adult taste, however, and nearly everyone walked out of Mary Linn with smiles on their faces. " I loved it. " " Bobbie Troster said. " I laughed so hard throughout the entire show. 1 didn ' t know what to expect, but I really enjoyed it. " Acting in their first University production was extremelv ner e-racking and exciting for the new theater members. Despite the students ' nerves, all of the performances went off w iihout a hitch. " It was a very fun play to do. ' " Keyma Bess said. " " I wasn ' t really nervous. It wasn ' t anything serious, so I let myself have fun with it. The comedy was a good choice for a first play. " The first theater production of the year got everyone involved in the performance. The show ' s cast consisted of 20 new actors and actresses and many veteran theater members who participated on the staff and crew. " The show was a great experience and a lot of fun, " Kevin Mueller said. " I thought it was a great idea to have the new students do the first show of the year. It really got everyone involved. I was really pleased with the performances. " The performance drew a large crowd. Many students went just to enjoy the performance, but .some students had classes which required them to attend the show . " 1 had to go for a class, " Pat Raney said. " I didn ' t think I would enjoy it. but for fairy tales it was great. " Some students were unsure of the show ' s format, but were pleased they decided to attend the show. " I thought it would be much more geared towards little kids, but it was funny. " Darin Noah said. " The sound effects were really cool. " Even though some students did not really know what to expect from the title, the show received rave reviews from everyone who was in attendance. The first-year students started their University theater career on an excellent note, and the student production seemed to be a hit.

Observers noted the hilarity of the situations from the heginniny. " I ne er thought ot politics in a a that was presented so humorousK. ' Justin Blatny said. F ' ormed in 1 9S 1 . the group debuted u hen three congressional workers v ere asked to organize a Christmas party in the oft ice of lormer .Senator Charles Perc . Originalls the were slated to do the traditional Nati it play, howevertheir plans changed when it was discovered, as they said, that the) " could not find three wise men or a irgin. " in all of congress. Instead, the group performed a " roast " of sorts, which introduced a musical political satire that turned the group into Capitol .Steps. The full cast roster consisted of 1 S memhers, six of whom peiformed at any one show. The cast traveled from performance to perfor- mance and had visited close to . 8 of the . " SO states with nearly 300 shows e ery year. College shi)ws had become more popular as the group ' s fame grew. " We had to be reminded of where we were sometimes, " Brian Ash said. " After ha ing done so many shows in a short span of time it was easy to forget where we were. " Ash, who formerly worked for a legislative computer service, was the planning coordinator for Capitol Steps. The group ' s basis of material was drawn trom the everyday life of many Washington-ba.sed politicians, which made the show a timely and active alternate brand of entertainment. Students noted thai the show lost a great deal of its humor if one was Luitamilar with political current events. " 1 thiuighi that their stuff was up-to-date. " Jason Whiting said. " If you did not keep up with the presidential election and the t pes of race each candidate was running, it did not make a lot of sense. " The program consisted of skits that targeted everything from the presidential candidates, to political awareness groups encouraging people to get out and vote, to teenagers ' lives in today ' s society. " It was good because it was objective, " Nathan Thomas said. " Thev did not Just poke fun at one candidate or another, they really laid into all ot them. " Though the group had a broad appeal to their show, they offered an unusual look at political activities that Maryville residents could whole- heartedly relate to. " When we were in Washington, we did mate- rial that was more appropriate for a Washington crowd. " Ash said. " Naturally we altered our material to fit the various audiences we catered to. " Even though they kept things geared toward the local level, the audience had to stay abreast of governmental issues that faced the nation. " In order to enjoy it. you had to be up-to-date, " Pavel Palsencia said. " Otherwise everything went right over your head and you would have missed the best parts. " Capitol Steps proved to be a unique alternative to the usual theatrical production or musical concert offered at Northwest. Sara Meyers POLITICALLY ACTIVE CAPITOL STEPS Capitol Steps 79 The house hghts dimmed and into the spotlight shuffled a scraggly-looking man, dressed in a flannel shirt, jeans and tennis shoes. He rubbed his chin, slouched forward, shoved his hands into his back pockets, and mumbled into the microphone. " So I uh ... get off the plane and 1 forget to undo my seatbelt, so I ' m uh... pulling the plane through the terminal. ..the wings are knocking people over. " Sept. 29 was not your usual Tuesday night when comedian Steven Wright visited North- west. Scott Milinkov thought Wright clashed with the traditional comedian performance that most audiences were used to. " Other comedians told a story and they were more vocal, " Milinkov said. " Wright was ex- tremely dry with a stupid humor that was always funny. He strayed away from the normal loud and obnoxious comedian. " " I had two brothers and one sister, " Wright said. " My sister had three brothers and no sisters. When she was little I used to tease her and say, ' Look, you ' re not really in this family, you ' re the only one who doesn ' t have any sisters. ' " Even Wright himself could not uphold his monotone character through the entire perfor- mance. An occasional smirk emerged when he mentioned clever events that many would se- cretly love to try. " One night George put little contact lenses in his dog ' s eyes and drew cats on them..., " Wright said. " He ' s in a veterinarian insane asylum now. " This " dry " sense of humor brought Wright a long way from stand-up nightclubs to headlining performances across the country. Wright began his career in 1982 on " The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson " and performed on episodes of " Saturday Night Live " and " Late Night with David Letterman. " Though Wright was most famous for his one- liners, he had no problem sending the crowd into fits of laughter when he began strumming on his acoustic guitar singing " Little Baby Prostitute. " " Hey little baby looking at me, I ' m a baby too. Little baby prostitute lay near me... I was four days old. I was twice her age. If I kiss her now will she remember.. .Little baby harlot. Can you hear the music? Can you hear the trumpet ' . ' Don ' t play it too loud, you ' ll wake the little strumpet. ..Little baby prostitute lay near me. " Wright ended his song claiming he did not mean to offend anybody. " 1 hope 1 didn ' t offend any prostitutes in the audience. I hear a lot of them go to this school. " Jami Johnson had seen some of Wright ' s pre- vious performances on HBO and was ready for his off-the-wall style. " His style was great, " Johnson said. " Even though it was put on, it seemed so genuine, like his real personality. " Wright could not suppress a slight grin when reminiscing about his childhood. " My grandfather gave me and my brother two boxes, " Wright said. " He gave me a box of Band- Aids and gave him a box of broken glass and said " now you two share. " " Wright ' s comedy had been described as flat, monotone, dry, demented and twisted, but to his audiences he was just plain funny. Maybe Wright said it best himself when he said. " Can you tell I ' m crazy? " Karissa Boney UNUSUALLY FUNNY STEVEN WRIGHT Off-the- Wall. S I c V c n Wright brought a dry sense of humor to North- west with his stand- II p e o ni - e d y act. Wright was fa- mous for one-liners and his un- usual per- sonality. 80 Steven Wright Steven Wright 81 As the minutes to curtain time grew closer, cast members put finishing touches on their costumes. Behind a closed door, notes rang out as a singer warmed up her voice. The singing, costumes and jokes gave the Kansas City ' s Lyric Opera ' s production of the " The Mikado " the perfect edge to give the audi- ence a standing-ovation level of entertainment. " The Mikado, " written by W.S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan, was a satire about English life. " The Mikado " was centered around a musi- cian, Nanki-Poo, played by Christopher Hux, who had fallen in love with the fair maiden, Yum-Yum, played by Jane Munson. Unfortu- nately, Yum-Yum, who loved Nanki-Poo, was going to marry Ko-Ko, the Lord High Execu- tioner. The characters involved the audience by jok- ing about current political issues that changed with the times. " 1 liked the story because it was timeless, " Stephanie DeFoor said. " Even though it was written in the 1 800s it could have been adapted. The comedy in it was not dry even though it was a century later. " Timeless songs, such as " Three Little Maids from School are We, " " Object all Sublime " and " I ' ve Got a Little List " kept " The Mikado " an enjoyment to watch. " Well, they (the songs) were wonderfully funny pieces, " Hux said. " The wit of the words was still funny today. " The day of the wedding, Ko-Ko received a letter from the Mikado, the emperor of Japan, who ordered him to execute someone or he would lose his position as executioner. Ko-Ko was faced with the quandary of finding someone to execute. Since Nanki-Poo could not marry Yum-Yum he decided to commit suicide. This was the perfect person for Ko-Ko to ex- ecute. He told Nanki-Poo that he should not kill himself, but stay alive and marry Yum-Yum. Although Nanki-Poo had to agree to be executed after one month, in order to fulfill the Mikado ' s orders. Unfortunately, Katisha, who loved Nanki- Poo, showed up attempting to reveal Nanki- Poo ' s secret identity. Failing to reveal her .secret, Katisha left the city of Titipu only to return later with the Mikado who revealed the big secret to the town. Nanki- Poo was not a poor wandering minstrel, but instead the son of the Mikado, who had run away from his father after being engaged to Katisha. After Ko-Ko had faked Nanki-Poo ' s death he had to prove that Nanki-Poo was really alive and married to Yum-Yum. The only way to save his position was that Ko-Ko had to find a suitable man for Katisha to marry, which turned out to be himself. Some Northwest Japanese students thought that the opera somewhat deceived the audience with more of the Chinese culture than the Japa- nese. Miki Tokunaga said that none of the charac- ters had Japanese names and they did not wear the Japanese style of makeup. " It was definitely different, " Tomoko Hiraoka said. As the last note was sung and a dragon spewed smoke, the audience left the ir seats in approval as the dramatic opera came to a close. Fay Dahlquist AN LYRIC OPERA 82 Lyric Opera The plot thickens.

" One of the best military bands in the world. " the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command Band. The band, whose home base was Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, was comprised of musi- cians in various stages of their militar careers. Often the performers had earned bachelor or doctorate degrees in a multitude of fields includ- ing politics, business and music. They came from around the country to play in the band and due to the large number of shows the band performed, (often 500 or more a season) mem- bers often reached a new level of intensity in their music that their career had not yet experi- enced. " We play ja z, classical and what might be considered easy listening. " Staff Sgt. Jay Constantino said. " That requires being able to jump in and substitute for missing pieces at any given time on the tour. " Before the performance began. Staff Sgt. Larry Smith warmed up with a few easy scales. According to Smith, to join the band required scheduling an audition with the group. " It was just a real " simple " audition. " Smith said. " Basically, the scales, cite readings and song excerpts were given to determine the levels of experience of incoming performers. " ' Clarinet player Senior Master Sgt. David Rodgers acted as Master of Ceremonies and discussed the historical background of each piece before the band began. A variety of musi- cal disciplines were showcased, with everything from the " ' Italian Polka " to " A Walt Disnev Spectacular " " performed for the diverse crowd. A " " Concerto in B Flat lor Two Triunpets, " " was a special ensemble arrangemeni pertormed by Tech. Sgl. Jon Yates and Staff Sgt. Barry Ilitt. Yates, a Northwest akiinnus. was gi en a warm reception by the audience and members of his family that were on hand for ihe show. The company further demonstrated their ca- pabilities by adding ocals on a medle from the motion picture " ' Beaches. " ' Tech. Sgl. Sharon Johnson, originally from Sidney, Iowa, joined the group right out of high school. " The Air Force came to watch her perform, " Rex Travis, Johnson ' s father, said. " They re- cruited her then as a singer for one of their pertbrming groups. " ' Johnson ' s professional accolades included performing with Bob Hope and Joe Feeney of the Lawerence Welk Show . She had also trav- eled to the Philippines, Japan and Europe. With the diversity of the members ' experi- ences, adapting to various audiences may have seemed like a difficult task, but it was one they handled with ease. ■ " The band did well in choosing entertaining music pieces for all ages, " Matthew Bosisio, mass communication instructor, said. " My fa- vorite was the Disney Spectacular. I enjoyed the personalization of the show. " Providing a wide range of selection, the band succeeded in insoKing the sarious facets of the audience they attracted. With background trivia that offered a broadened perspective to newcom- ers and unique interpretations of old family favorites, the band had clearly earned the ova- tions they received. ,lada Pankau COMMANDING TUNES U.S. AIR FORCE BAND U.S. Air Command Band 85 86 Lend Me A Tenor Superb Opera. Diinng ihc first week of touring. 3-D Pro- duction Company visited Northwest with their production of " Lend Me A Tenor. " The award winning play fo- cused on the oper- atic-era of 1934. Aciiniedy of errors descended upon stage when the award-winning com- edy " Lend Me A Tenor " provided laughter to an audience of approximately 600. The play received international acclaiin after receiving two Tony Awards, as well as four Drama Desk and three Outer Critic Awards. Performed by the New York -based 3-D Pro- ductions, the play made a stop at Northwest in the first week of its 22-week run. " Lend Me A Tenor " offered a look back at Cleveland in 1934 where the plot revolved around international opera star. Tito Morelli. who was to make his American operatic debut. This handsome star attracted attention from swooning females, his jealous wife and an an- noying bellhop. The action and laughter contin- ued as all hell broke lose when Tito took too many relaxation pills and becatne " indisposed " an hour before the curtain was due to go up. This apparent suicide gave way to a heroic imperson- ation by Max. the bumbling assistant and aspir- ing singer. The laughter and mistaken identities only continued as the real Tito Morelli awoke. The comedy received high praise from tnostof those in attendance. " I felt the play was very suspenseful and overall very funny, " Jason Elam said. " I thor- oughly enjoyed the character of the opera star Tito. His accent was superb, and the looks of surprise painted on his face were priceless. " For others, the play offered a chance to see an old favorite. " I went to the play because I had seen it perlbnued before by another cotnpany and 1 liked it, but I found I liked this company ' s production even more. " Jennifer Turk said. The cast of eight expres.sed gratification with being on tour and seeing the country while also beitig able to do what they loved. For Mo Kocca. w ho play ed the annoying bell- hop, being on his first national tour provided ptire enjoyment. The thing I loved the most was the immediate gratification, " Rocca said. " When the entire plot was revealed it was always exciting to see and listen to how the audience reacted as they clued in. " Rocca also applauded the audience for its strong perception. " We had never had an audience that had been so on. " Rocca said. " There had been audiences which had erupted at different points, hut this one was constantly on. That was exciting be- cause it was a burst of adrenaline for us and kept us moving. " The play wrapped up by replaying the major points of action as if the actors had been thaist into a fast forward mode. Audience members expressed their approval for the play by giving the actors applause followed by a standing ova- tion. Through an eye-catching set, superbly per- formed acting and mishaps by the dozen, " Lend Me A Tenor, " entertained both the young and those that were young at heart. The award- winning play left many people rolling with laughter one minute and gripped with suspense the next. The perfortnance of " Lend Me A Tenor, " which critics had hailed as " uproari- ously funny. " and " delirium triumphant, " was a success and lent a humorous look back to the past while being applied to the present. Jennifer Krai BROADWAY IN THE ' VILLE LEND ME A TENOR Lend Me A Tenor 87 M ary Linn Performing Arts Center was filled to near capacity. The audience, consisting mainly of citizens of Maryville and surrounding towns, waited in anticipation. They waited for the arrival of the internationally famous Les Brown and his Band of Renown. Brown and his band were well known for playing popular music from the Big Band era. Although most people in attendance went to enjoy an evening of Big Band sounds, some students attended the performance due to re- quirements for classes. ■ ' I had to go to the performance because I needed a cultural event to write about for my Freshman Seminar class, " Angie Pfetcher said. " I really didn ' t know what kind of music to expect. " Other students claimed different reasons for taking in the pert ' ormance at Mary Linn. " I was interested in the show because I had been in show choir and I knew some of the music that Brown ' s band played, " Amie Pursel said. As the Band of Renown filed onto the stage, the audience watched and talked among them- selves about what the evening had in store for them. Brown walked casually onto the stage, joining his 14-member band. Their 10th perfor- mance in Maryville was about to get underway. The crowd exploded into applause. The evening had begun. Members of the surrounding communities were pleased with the performance that Brown gave. Some patrons traveled from as far as Kan- sas City to see the show. " It was wonderful. " Fayetta Alsbury of Stanberry said. " I had seen Les Brown and his Band of Renown many times before and it was always a great show. " During the intermission, the captive audience talked and laughed about the great performance. Some numbers that Brown and his band per- formed were " Sentimental Journey, " " Bad Bad Leroy Brown. " and " Leap Frog. " Many com- mented that Brown ' s sense of humor made the show not only musically entertaining, but also somewhat of a comedy performance. " Les Brown seemed very friendly and appre- ciative of his audience, " Pfetcher said. " The humor he put into the show added a lot. " Even though Big Band styles were not what was traditionally listened to by University stu- dents, some walked away with a new respect for the Big Band music. " I enjoyed it despite the fact that it was not the music that I normally listened to, " Pfetcher said. The alternative type of music made some students want to attend similar shows in the future. " After I got there I thought it was neat because it was the kind of music my grandparents lis- tened to, " Pursel said. " I had never really sat down and listened to that kind of music before. I liked the show more than I expected 1 would. I would go again if 1 had the chance to. " Brown and his band had intended to put on a spectacular show packed with Big Band sounds and entertainment. They went above and beyond this promi.se, and gave the crowd an evening of a lifetime. Being a repeat pert ' ormance at North- west, many audience members hoped to see Brown and his band return to Maryville again.

Les Brown 89 traitjackets, wooden spikes, a drown- B ing man in a water tank, blood and naked men were not objects of typical Monday night entertainment. Penn and Teller, however, visited Missouri for the first time and dared to do the unthinkable. " We would both be stripping naked and bleed- ing, " Penn said. " We were probably some of the first people to strip naked and bleed in Mis- souri. " Penn. a tall, long-haired, loud, obnoxious man and Teller, his short, bushy-haired, quiet partner, brought a riveting combination of comedy and magic to campus. " I thought they were really cheerful guys, " Nichole Schawang said. " I could tell they were fun guys and loved what they did. I thought some people might have thought they were rude or obnoxious, but 1 thought everyone enjoyed them. " Describing Penn and Teller was almost an impossible feat. Some said they were eccentric while others called them rude. Penn however, described themselves as " skeptical hunks. " Mike Jessee simply enjoyed their unusual per- sonalities. " Their presence was rare for performers, " Jessee said. " The whole presence of Penn ' s booming voice and Teller, he had that Charlie Chaplin style down to a science. " Their odd contrast in appearance and style just added to the oddities of their show. Penn and Teller were best known for dumping 1 ,000 cock- roaches on the host of " Late Night with David Letterman. " Other unusual feats included han- dling leeches, and standing in a cage with 100,000 honeybees. Audience participation was a large part of their show as a spectator helped strap Teller into a straitjacket and then Penn hung him above a bed of wooden spikes. Audience member Jolinda Spreitzer was even used as the object of their levitation feat. Spreitzer laid flat on a board and through relaxation did not know what was happening, even when they pulled the board out from under her. She only realized what had happened when Teller gave her a polaroid snap- shot he had taken as she floated in air. " I had no idea what they were doing. " Spreitzer said. " I was just relaxing. I thought it was some sick joke and when everyone started clapping I got really nervous about what they were doing. " Penn also stabbed a knife through his hand and later Teller swallowed needles. Teller went on to drown in a water tank for over 10 minutes, breaking Harry Houdini ' s record of 5 minutes and 35 seconds. This unusual show started in 1975 when Penn and Teller began working together. Even before they met, the background was beginning for this now-famous duo. Penn ' s interest in magic went back to his early childhood days when he read a biography on Houdini and watched many magic shows on television. At 13. Penn ' s interest in magic faded and an interest in rock ' n " roll emerged. Strange as it may have seemed, Penn said that as a child he wanted to be an oceanographer and was interested in the sciences. Teller on the other hand always preferred dramatic experiences and the presence of some type of threat in his life. At -continued MAGICALLY INCLINED PENN TELLER More money.

" I sent away for a Howdy Doody magic kit with terrible tricks punched out of cardboard, " Teller said. " It hit some type of psychological bedrock and I never grew out of it. I wanted to be the Bach of magic. I wanted to summarize every- thing that had gone before me and top it. " Although Penn and Teller ' s act was often labeled a comedic magic show, there were prob- ably no two words to describe them away from the stage. Both of their personal interests wan- dered far from comedy and magic. The well-educated duo had many intellectual interests. Other than his beginning juggling act, Penn also had a strong interest in computers and wrote a monthly column for PC Computing magazine. After teaching Latin to high school students, Teller found directing and acting were two of his keen interests. Together, Penn and Teller appeared on sev- eral episodes of " Late Night With David Letterman " and " Saturday Night Live. " They were also guests on episodes of " The Today Show, " " Entertainment Tonight, " and " The Arsenio Hall Show " as the television appearance list continued on and on. Stage shows off and on Broadway, a best-seller book, a music video, a guest appearance on Miami Vice and a special aired on Showtime, were just a few of the many accomplishments of Penn and Teller. Perhaps the most talked about product of Penn and Teller was the national release of their book " How To Play With Your Food. " Penn claimed that this instructional book on how to make Jello that bleeds, how to make spaghetti that you can slit your wrists with and various other stories and tips about food, was destined as a best-seller. He also said this odd choice was the most universal topic they found. " We wanted to cover as many people as pos- sible, " Penn said. " Dealing with food was the best because very many people ate and those who didn ' t eat were so busy with their political cause or trying to get food that they didn ' t buy books anyway. " Despite the obvious fame and success of Penn and Teller, Mary Linn Performing Arts Center was not sold out. Only 500 tickets were sold and under half the theater was filled. Despite the small attendance, the audience seemed enthused about the performance. " I thought it was funny and original, " Jessee said. " I liked the way they put a macabre twist on magic. They did magic in an original way so that it was not boring, but it was done in a funny way. " Not everyone had an overwhelming attach- ment to Penn and Teller, in fact they mentioned that some magicians hated them because of the unusual twist to their show. They would often show how tricks were done simply for the ben- efit of the crowd. " The hatred of magic and the respecting of audiences had given us the last 1 8 years of our lives, " Penn said. " People were sick of being treated like they were dumb as dirt. The Ameri- can public was very smart. " The last scene of this show went back to what Penn called a " classic 50s magic routine with silks and flowers producing blood. " This Vegas scenario of naked, bleeding men could have been questionable to some audiences but Schawang thought it made the show. " The whole scenario with the gowns, blood and everything was great, " Schawang said. " I thought it made the show better. " Spreitzer agreed that the bloody scenes just added to their humor. " They were hilarious, " she said. " They had a different, unique kind of humor and all the blood just made it funnier. " Penn said it did not really matter what people thought of the performance. They performed for those who enjoyed this form of entertainment. " There were absolutely no ailes, " he said. " No one told us what to do because we did what no one else did. We did Penn and Teller. " The small but overwhelmed audience showed their satisfaction with a standing ovation. Penn and Teller returned their appreciation by signing autographs after the show, still blood-soaked in their gowns. This was definitely a night to re- member in Maryville.

Penn and Teller 93 N o matter what profession, be it teacher, plumber, writer or artist working with co-workers was a ma- jor part to accomplishing goals. The play " A Company of Wayward Saints, " performed by Northwest ' s Department of Theatre, was about a company of actors who were having trouble working together. " I thought it (the play ) was really good, " Bryan McAdams, who played Pantalone, said. " They (the characters) had a specific place called home. People needed to realize that in their own lives wherever you were the happiest, doing what you like, that was home. " In the play, the troupe was performing in order to travel home, but their inability to work to- gether prohibited them from accomplishing their goal. The leader of the group. Harlequin, played by Shad Ramsey, found a sponsor, the Duke, who would provide the funds for their trip home, but only if the company performed the history of man for him. During the first act, the troupe comically acted segments from history, such as the fall of Adam and Eve, the Trojan War and the assassination of Caesar. Unfortunately, each scene was cut short when the actors started arguing. " On the surface I thought the segments were funny, " Shelly Bransetter said. " But once you realized they had to work off of each other, the fighting seemed ridiculous. " The troupe came to the tragic conclusion that they could no longer work together. At the end of the act, the actors had dispersed in different directions. When the characters realized they needed each other in order to return home, the actors returned to .see if they could salvage the Duke " s performance. A pep talk from Harlequin and phoney notes from the audience gave the troupe a new per- spective on the performance they were to give. They acted out the cycles of man; birth, ado- lescence, marriage and death, instead of stories throughout time. " It was very relative to real life, " McAdams said. " It was the same everywhere you worked. You worked with people and you got to know them so well, sometimes they got on your nerves. " During the second act, the actors found out a little more about themselves and their co-work- ers. While the act was very dramatic, there was also that touch of comedy that existed in the first act. " As far as the first act was concerned, it was just to entertain, " Charles Schultz said. " Just thinking in terms of all kinds of physical sight gags and humor. In the second act when they started to discover more of themselves and what they were all about, they started to settle in a little more, be a little more profound with the aspects of what they were performing. " " A Company of Way ward Saints " was person- alized for both audience and actors. " I liked how they ventured out into the audi- ence, " Pam Vander Gaast said. " It made the play more personal when they did that. " In the end the characters realized that their home was not necessarily a physical dwelling, but was with each other, playing out an eternity of scenes.

The Vienna Choir Boys sing before anearsold- out audi- ence. The show also i ncluded the one act comic- opera en- titled " Abu Hassan. ' " Photo b Jon Britten. The lights .civ brought up and an enthusiastic audience applauded as 23 ycning boys were led on stage b their conductor, Thomas Bt)ttcher. Local resi- dents and students were entertained by the inter- nationalK -known Vienna Choir Boys. Founded n 1498 by Emperor Ma. imilian 1 as entenainment for Austrian dignitaries, the choir had developed into a private business interest. The boys were chosen by special audition at age eight and sent to a boarding school associated with the choir. During two years of required preparation they were trained to sing and pro- nounce Latin, learn voice technique and practice e tensi el . In those years the boys were re- quired to pa a small fee for room, board and educaliiin. Alter they had begun to toui. Imu- e er. the boys became empknees of the choir. " While touring w ith the choir, the boys did not ha e to pay for anything. " Gero Ba ant. house father, said. " They earned their lis ing by sing- ing. " Most of the boys were between the ages of 1 and 1 4. At age 1 the boys could enter the choir and after their voice broke, most returned home to continue their education that had begun in the boarding school and through tutors whenever the boys were on tour. " The boys toured si, months out of the year, " Bazant said. " They were in the Lnited .States or other countries for three months and in Vienna for three months. " The choir performed songs by Fran? Schubert. Johannes Brahms. Johann Strauss as well as completing a one-act comic-opera called " Abu Hassan. " For man ' . the opera was their favorite part of the show. Tom Hackworth enjoyed the act because it was so unique. " The comic-opera was something different and unexpected, " Hackworth said. " It was defi- nitely entertaining. " Many foimd the entire show more enjoyable than they had expected. " I was a music major and my director recom- mended it. " Johannah Spencer said. " 1 liked the opera because it was funns . " Some thought the concert would have been more church-oriented than it was. " When 1 lirst heard of them I thought they would be a big church-type choir. " Danelle Pedersen said. " They v ere definitely better than 1 had thought. " Following their final sequence, the choir re- ceived a standing ovation and returned to the stage to sing " The Yellow Rose of Texas. " Many enjoyed hearing the boys sing in English. " My favorite part was the end w hen they sang in English, " Kari Drake said. " At least it was something I could understand. " They received two more standing ovations and returned to sing " On the Road Again, " followed by a traditional Austrian folksong. Dave Gieseke, director of public relations, said one of the reasons the choir was popular in Maryville because this was their second visit. Gieseke said the performance was 50 tickets short of being sold out. The choir visited the United States more than 46 times. Whether they were entertaining heads of state, university crowds, or holding audiences with the Pope, the boys had captivated and pleased crowds worldw ide. .lennv I.awton VIENNA CHOIR BOYS Vienna Choir Boys 97 People laughing, bells ringing, chil- dren singing, hands clapping and feet tapping. These were sounds that ech- oed throughout Mary Linn Performing Arts Center during the Mr. Jack Daniel ' s Original Silver Cornet Band peiformance of a Home- town Christmas. The musical sounds of cornets. horns, bells, and drums opened the Christmas season in Mary ille. Mr. Jack Daniel ' s Original Silver Cornet Band was the revival of an era in music history that was lost for nearly a century. The 12- musician band had been touring the United States for 14 years, redeveloping the style that presented music as a part of life. The Hometown Christmas show was de- signed to bring back the memories of everyone ' s favorite Christmas. Adults and children could listen to the stories and recall that one extremely special Christmas. " The Hometown Christmas portrayal gave a lot of meaning to many people and their own memories of Christmas, " Marc Jackson said. Although the performance was completely instrumental, many members of the audience joined in to sing along with the tunes. " They got the audience involved in the perfor- mance when the conductor invited the audience to sing the familiar tunes as the band played. " Julie Dake said. The conductor of the band. Irving Kane, told unique stories before the band played various songs. The stories attempted to make the audi- ence believe they could have been sitting in a theater nearly 50 years ago watching the same program unfold before them. " The stories reminded me of old Christmas movies 1 saw on television. " Stacy Hunt said. Although not a traditional seasonal tune, the selection " How to Build a Band " was pert ' ormed during the show. Kane told stories about specific instruments and then the musicians presented the audience with a solo demonstration of their abililities. " O Holy Night, " " " What Child is This. " and " The Little Drummer Boy " w ere just a few of the Christmas selections that were played by the band. The band presented two selections in an ex- tremely unique fashion by playing " We Three Kings " as " The Three Kings from Dixie. " The audience showed their enjoyment by clapping and tapping along. A member of the audience had a bell she rung to join in and help the band. " The Twelve Days of Christmas. " another famous Christmas tune, was presented in a fash- ion befitting the style of the Silver Comets. The title of the selection was " The Twelve Days of a Tennessee Christmas. " Once again the conduc- tor told an animated tale about the musical selec- tion explaining things that people gave and re- ceived on the 1 2 day s of Christmas in Tennessee. " When they started playing ' The Twelve Days of Christmas in Tennessee, ' 1 was quite surprised because 1 expected the original ver- sion, " Tina Brackett said. " I quickly realized that I was singing the wrong words. " Mr. Jack Daniel ' s Original Silver Cornet Band brought to life the sounds of Christmas. The 1 2-musician band from Tennessee showed its expertise, love and enjoyment of music in hopes of filling audience member with Christ- mas Spirit. Sharon Hardnett CHRISTMAS MR.

The word was looked at m;iny ways, with apprehension ;ind fear as in the days of Salem witch hunts, or with excitement as seen in recent years when pertomiers like Doug Henning and David Copperfield were intrtxiuced. Who could forget the legendary Hiirry Houdini who sp«ke alxiut the fickleness of his trade by saying " one step ahead is never far from two behind. " Following in the masters ' footsteps and heeding wise words of caution, illusionists Kevin and Cindy Spencer per- fonned for the audience as well as themselves. " With each peifomiance. we learned new things about ourseKes. " Cindy said. " We went through the show and decided on adjustments. That was our saving grace on those cross-country drives. " The couple perfomied simple illusions and those that had tiiken years to perfect. Some favorites included a trick borrowed from Houdini himself, the Milk Can Escape, which involved a small milk can filled with neiirly 60 gallonsof water. Kevin was submerged into tlie c;ui with a three-minute time span to perfomi the illusion, and at times, the trick became more difficult than most show-goers would imagine. " We only did that one occasionally, " Kevin said. " That was one illusion where great care had to be taken to ensure safety precautions were in place. More than once we had to stop the illusion because something had gone amiss. " The problems that occurred made it harder for Cindy to watch her husb;md attempt the act. " I never figured out which was more difficult; the physical strain put on Kevin everytime he got in the thing, or the emotional drain I e.xperienced knowing if anytliing happened he could have been in a life threat- ening position and I could have done little to help. " Cindy said. TTie couple called on the audience for help in a numberof illusions. Paul Li)hmanjoinedthemon stage to help execute the Milk Can illusion. " They were serious when they told me what had to be done. " Lx)hman said. ' They were trying to ensure that nothing would happen that might endanger him (Spencer). " Not evei ' y portion of the show was one of hand- wringing suspense. Many of the acts incorporated what werecalledelementsofreality vs. illusion. These tricks, although somewhat less intense, were still mind-boggling. " I had some idea of how they perfonned the bigger illusions. " Blase Smith said. " But the paper trick, where they tore a newspaper into lengths and reaimed it to its original form. 1 would probably never figure out unless someone showed me. " Other illusions were extra-sensory perception derivitives that encorporated ideals of the audience, with an entire lESP illusion, or guessing the face on a playing card someone from the crowd picked. Stephanie Heldstab was chosen to join the couple onstage to complete an act. " It was fun, " Heldstab .said. " I always liked magic and its presentation made it interesting to be a part of " The i llusions made chi Idhood magicians remember dreams and days of classic performers long gone-by. " We thought of ourselves in the same way as the vaudeville and circus pertomiers. " Cindy Spencer said. ' They traveled firom small town to even smaller town perfomiing for people that were enthralled with all they offered. That w;is tlie driving force behind all we did; the people, the places and the pertbrming. " The Spencers " showmanship and pleasure derived from entertaining made the pert ' omiance a delight for any age. Magic was still alive in the world and it came to life in ti-ont of our very eyes.

Number two, the Campus Activities Programmers, was very organized: it was easy to work with. " Though Wand had done nutnerous sht)ws throughout the country, he liked Northwest because of his awareness of what would be waiting for him upon ar- rival. Wand also cited the thorough com- munication process between CAPS and himself that left him without worry of complication. Ticket sales were not a problem tor the Beyond Imagination performance. The show was such a popular e ent, a second show time was added to accommodate many loyal fans, " I thought the show was belter this time. " Renee McCabe said.

This could describe any performance ensemble, but this was not a normal performance it k as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble. " It was excellent and very interesting, " Tina Bracket! said. " They used different styles of dance not just ballet and jazz, it was a combina- tion. " In 1974, Ailey formed a workshop, which was comprised of the 12 most outstanding scholar- ship students of the American Dance Center, located in New York City. Since the ensembles founding it had become a stepping stone be- tween the Ailey school and a professional dance company. After studying with the Ailey en- semble, dance students often went on to be in Broadway productions, become teachers and work for other dance companies. Most of the dance students stayed with the ensemble for a maximum of two to three years and ranged in age from 18 to 23. The company toured three to four months out of the year in various cities around the country. The day of the pertbnnance the company held a demonstration lecture for any interested stu- dents, w hich only a few college students, parents and children attended. Those who did attend enjoyed the program because of the unique com- bination of music and dance. " I thought it (the demonstration) was real different, " Deborah Johnson said. " The different backgrounds coming together from different places. " The pieces performed during the denionsira- lion were " Mean old I ' risco, " " The Sham, " " To Have and to Hold " and " Isba. " While the dancers were changing their costumes between pieces, Sylvia Waters, artistic director of the ensemble, told the audience about the history and fine qualities of the Ailey ensemble. Afterthe perfor- mances the dancers went center stage for a question and answer session. Kasumi Sakai attended the demonstration be- cause she enjoyed watching dancing. " I thought it was interesting, " Sakai said. " I liked the way the bodies were constructed, the building of the body was pretty. " But. the demonstration was only a taste of what was still to come. The performance later that evening kept the audience as captivated as the earlier demonstration. The first piece scheduled, " Guerilla Love Song Dances, " was cancelled due to injuries and instead they performed " Seeds " along w ith " To Have and to Hold " and " Isba. " Markeith Lemons liked the " Seeds " piece because it represented grow th in a beautiful way. " To me it represented growth and changing. " Lemons said. " They went from something ugly into something beautiful. " lor most the pieces were well-peiformed, but there were some who were looking for more. " From what I had talked about with other people they could ha e been better, " Lemons said. " I didn ' t know exactly what to look for. but it looked well performed. " Whether the audience came just to enjoy or for a class, watching a combination of ballet, mod- ern and yd dancing kept e eryone interested, no matter what their tastes were.

Feb. II. The San Francisco-based traveling troupe was presented b Northwest Encore Pertorniances. Crowd interaction played a large role in the success of the perforniance. according to one ot the ensemble ' s members. The audience at Northwest was " a great audi- ence and really made the show fun, " Pickle Family Circus member. Bill Forchion, said. The crowd was not as big as expected or desired, according to Da e Gieseke. director of News and Information. " I was a little dissappoinled in the crowd, " Gieseke said. " It was definitely one of our smaller-sized shows. " The si e of the crow d. how o cr. did not ham- per the performance. " It was a great show. " Gieseke said. " I was reallv ama ed with their athletic ability. It was not just a bunch of people jumping around on stage. " The performers and audience interacted e en before the show started. Pino, a spunky tumbler with a flair for showing off, was whistling through the audience before the lights dimmed. Wearing a purple jump suit and a smile as w ide as her face, she whistled and mimed w hilecraw 1- ing and hurdling over and around the seats and the audience. Her goal was to move all the people sitting toward the outside of the theater closer together and closer to the center. When the priming ended, the lights went out and an announcement was made. ■ ' Folks, for the safct of our pcilnrmers weask that there be no use of flash photography, " a member of the liveja band which accompa- nied the circus said. This announcement might have seemed strange, but for a flying trape c act abine the stage it made perfect sense. " Brother Sun Sister Moon, " was performed h Aloysia Gavre-Wareham and Dennis Das iault. The performers swayed and tw isted to the live music as they hung on to the bar. each other and the crowd. Other numbers included juggling, balancing nine people on a bicycle, spinning six plates on sticks w ithout losing one and tossing performers high into the air and catching them in a chair 20 feet above the stage. Each performance brought cheers from the crowd, especially the ones where members of the audience were involved. .Miming her directions, Pino turned the crowd into a working musical instrument. With the audience producing grunts and other strange sounds, a quirky tune vs as created throughout the auditorium. After the finale, members of the Pickle Family Circus mingled through the exiting crowd, shak- ing hands and exchanging compliments with children and adults. Though the performance was not attended by any Northwest students, it did not hinder the groups performance or their willingness to return. The circus group was well-known on the West Coast and were gaining popularity in other re- gions. Gieseke said he planned to bring the Pickle Fainily Circus back in the fiuine. KoyiT Hii hlelt HIGH-FLYING ACROBATS PICKLE FAMILY CIRCUS Pickle Circus 105 The roses had died, the chocolates had been devoured and the card had been stuffed in a box somewhere in the back of a closet, but one Valentine ' s Day memory still brought a smile; seeing comedian Carrot Top. The comedian started his act by explaining some of the props that filled his four neon flowered trunks. He had a variety of things he had created to entertain audiences. " On TV, it was always just little clips of him, " Danileel Freeman said. " Here it was live and it was almost two hours of Carrot Top. " He began with a series of wire hangers. The first had one side stretched out of shape, it was for a hunch back, after that was a one-armed hanger, for a one-armed person and one without a hook, for college students who never hang up their clothes anyway. Some of his other creations included a $10 home security system; a pair of " bugle boy " jeans that had a bugle attached to the tly, a cowboy hat for black cowboys that had an " X " on the front of it, and what he called the gradu- ation cap for Northeast Missouri .State Univer- sity; a camouflaged baseball cap with a tassel. " It was like he said, he was able to do the stuff here he could not do on TV, " Angela Roush said. " He was not edited. " Carrot Top, who had bright orange hair, said his identity was often mistaken. " I was in the airport and people were like ' Chelsea Clinton with a bad haircut, " " he said. He said he sometimes had fun going through Wendy ' s drive-thru because when he put his hair in pig-tails, he was mistaken for Wendy. Carrot Top said he chose the name because it was fun and people remembered it, yet did not want to reveal his real name. " It was no fun if people knew it, " he said. " I would rather have been a mystery. " He also claimed that he had never bombed while doing stand-up. " Believe it or not, I never had, " he said. " I guess I was a likeable character. " He said he thought the trick to entertaining others was to make sure you entertained your- self. " If I entertained myself and had fun and I was not too serious about the whole thing the crowd would see that and say " this wass great, he was having fun too, ' " Carrot Top said. The second half of his show was a spoof of music videos and song lyrics, complete with strobe lights and fake smoke. Some of the songs he made fun of included Nirvana ' s " Smells Like Teen Spirt, " during the chorus of the song he pointed to the words Mellow Yellow as he held a two-liter bottle; he donned a long blond wig and danced around like Axl Rose; he wore a black wig, stuck out his lips and was transformed into Mick Jagger, and between every few songs " Achy Breaky Hearf by Billy Ray Cyrus would come on and he would beat on a toy record player with a baseball bat until it stopped. Afterreturning to the stage twice forthe stand- ing and cheering crowd. Carrot Top invited the audience to join him as he sold T-shirts and signed autographs for anyone interested in stay- ing after the performance. " I liked the fact that he was signing auto- graphs, " Freeman said. " He was very in touch with the crowd. " ,Fodi Puis Hot head phones. Clearing the signal on his air- line head- phones.

Carrot Top 107 ome may have tagged the happenings B in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center " pure nonsense. " But the any adven- tures of the sisters in the hroadway musical " Nunsense " proved just crazy enough to get the nearly sold-oiit audience laughing out of their seats. The audience was invited to be a part of the show, immediately at the onset iif the production. The house lights went down and the nuns came running out into the crowd and invited everyone to join in the Mount Saint Helens " cheer: " Wool Woo! Woo! " This was the second year for the production to hit Northwest and one audience member who saw both shows said the plot varied a little. " It was pretty much the same story, but they changed some of the words and stuff in it, so it was up to date. " AUie Weymuth said. The story of five nuns attempting to raise money for their convent was the winner of four 1986 Outer Critics " Circle Awards, which in- cluded Best Off-Broadway Musical. Best Book and Best Music. The sisters, referred to by citizens as " the little hobos ' " because of their convent size and setting up shop in Hoboken, N.J.. were teachers at Mount Saint Helens School. The cause for their fundraiser was filled with its share of " nunsense. " The convent chef. Sister Julia, Child of God, prepared a meal that sent 52 of the sisters to their death. There was money enough for proper burial of all 52 bodies, but the Mother Superior decided they needed a VCR so only 48 of the deceased sisters made it to their final resting place. The other four nuns were taking residence in the freezer until enough money could be raised for a proper burial. So Sister Mary Hubert. Sister Mary Robert Anne.SisterMary Amnesia and Sister Mary Leo along with Sister Mary Regina, Mother Superior collaborated their talents and put on a variety show, much to the delight of the audience. " It was fun, ' " Naoko Miyairi said. " I had many favorite parts. " When the sisters finished their variety show. Sister Mary Amnesia, a crowd favorite who had no clue to her own identity, called off questions to a quiz that the audience was expected to answer. When someone answered correctly, she gave that person a holy card. After the quiz, the sisters took turns showing off their talents which consisted of ventrilo- quism, tap dancing, and crooning a variety of songs about their aspirations and dreams of life. Unbeknow nst to the nuns, the health inspector was making an unexpected visit to their deep freeze. But the nuns found out the visit was not as unexpected as they thought when Sister Mary Amnesia said he had phoned the day before. After being warned that the nuns in the freezer had to be taken out immediately, the fundraiser went into full-speed. What followed were one liners that had the crowd hooting and hollering for more. The production proved successful after raving reviews it received after both performances. " I loved it. " Amy Miller said. " I saw it last year when it came here, and it was really good. " The two years Nunsense was on campus were certainly memorable and the sisters of Hoboken would have a spot in the hearts of all who heard their dilemmas and dreams. Andrea Johnson Singing Praises.

For Sam Shepard. his vision involved a look at life from a darker side. Shepard reflected his image of one rural family in his play, " Buried Child, " performed in the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center Studio Theatre. Centered around the life of a farm family living in Illinois, the plot focused on a secret the family had kept hidden for over 30 years. The mystery of an illegitimate child buried in the backyard was revealed after the grandson, Vince, returned home with his girlfriend. Shepard touched on issues such as rape, incest and murder as critical evidence to the loveless existence the family had fallen into. " The most important thing about this family was that there was no real love, " director Mark Yarns said. " Tragic things happened to most families and love helped them survive. The family that Shepard portrayed had no love. " The cast included Jeff Johnston as Vince, James Rush as Dodge, Anne Einig as Halie, Grant Hilgenkamp as Tilden, Bill Haley as Bra- dley, Yolanda Rogers as Shelly and Trevin Gay as Father Dewis. While " Buried Child " introduced some defini- tive ideas, it was also open to interpretation by each individual member of the audience. " " Buried Chi Id ' was a play where everyone had their own ending, " Jeff Johnston said. Though the piece allowed each individual who experienced the play to draw their own conclu- sions, it was important for the cast to focus on one specific meaning. By doing so, the cast could then gain a uniformity throughout the performance that added to the show ' s message. " As a cast, we answered al 1 of Shepard ' s unan- swered questions so we would have a common frame of reference. " Yarns said. " As a cast, we kept these answers as secrets, just as the family in the show kept those secrets. We did not expect the audience to see those answers. They would come up with their own answers just as Shepard intended them to. " The theater provided a close-knit atmosphere as it was assembled for only 40 people. The audience interacted with each other and dis- cussed the mystery of the show between acts. " There was a lot of tension and suspense, " Denise Davis said. " It was an intricate story of one family ' s attempt to hide a dirty secret until it was finally dug out of the ground. " For those involved in the production, the play forced them to re-examine almost nightly what type of message was being sent from the stage. Many began this examination by first digging further into the lives of their characters. " He (Yince) was led into a life that only led to death, " Johnston said. Although " Buried Child " offered a look at an unsavory portrait of Americana, it gave a sense of realism unique to stage production. " It was very intense, " Stephanie Damm said. " I did not know what was happening next. It kept me on the edge of my seat. " " Buried Child " explored what happened to the American Dream and took a step closer to distin- guishing how a family could become so dys- functional. The play went beyond tragedy into a realm of newfound understanding of secrets that so many people wanted to hide.

No matter where their roots began, they all came for one reason - to hear the silky. Southern voice of Kathy Mattea. The spring concert featuring a country west- ern performer w as a change from the usual rock concert. .Students said it was time for a change and with a sold-out performance in Mary Linn Performing Arts Center, there was no argument that Mattea was welcomed with open arms. " It was a great concert and I thought we needed the change, " Kody Oline said. " She was an awesome performer. " The singer and songwriter also captured the hearts of many outside of Maryville. She had earned high acclaim from the music industry having been the only woman nominated for the honor of Entertainer of the Year. Mattea won Countrv Music Association ' s Female Vocalist of the Year for three consecutive years and took home two Grammy Awards including Country Vocal Performer and Best Country Song in 1 99 1 for " Where ' ve You Been? " Northwest was Mattea ' s first show on the road for the year and she said that the performance was special to her because it was not the usual opening act, but all her own. " It w as really fun and a different experience to play for an audience that came to see me rather than opening up for somebody else, " Mattea said. " It was always a challenge to try and win the audience over and make a statement about who 1 was and let them discover me. But, it was more fun when it was my own audience meeting me halfway and they knew the songs. " Mary ille resident and dedicated fan Virginia Lent met Mattea more than hallway when she approached the stage wuh a bouc|uel of flowers. " The concert was great, " Lent said. " 1 thought it w as because there was such a closeness to the stage and it felt every song she sang was right to every person there. " Mattea brought a down-home, comfortable atmosphere to her performance by opening her- self up to the audience with tales from her husband ' s life as well as her own dreams and alues. Markee Warrick enjoyed her first coun- try ct)ncert because of this rela.xed atmosphere. " It was a friendly concert with a homey feel- ing, " Warrick said. " She made me feel welcome and she really cared about the audience. I liked the way she joked around and gave background to her songs, giving them a lot of meaning. " Mattea explamed that there was not a particu- lar song that meant more than the others because each song had a special place in her heart. " I thought of songs the same way people talked about theirchildren. " Mattea said. " I liked them all in different ways. I tried to find things that moved me and I felt deeply about so that when I had sung them 1 00 times I still enjoyed it. Over the years I developed a collection of thoughts that together had these wonderful fac- ets and different colors that always made it so much fun to do a show. " Perhaps the reason Mattea ' s audience enjoyed the songs so much was because they felt the feelings were genuine and straight from the heart. Mattea had come a long way from her debut record in 1985 to delivering her heart- warming music to audiences across the country.

As entrance requirements were raised and the budget was tightened, academics were more important to us than ever. Once again tuition increased, but we won- dered where the money was going, as we saw the proposed budget cuts go into effect. Technology students seemed to be the most effected as they scrambled to complete their degrees before the scheduled termination of the department at the end of the academic year. Many of us struggled with the decision of what we wanted to major in, while others were confident enough with their choice to study abroad, as several student and faculty groups took educational trips overseas. No matter where we fit in, adjusting to aca- demic changes was necessary for college sur- vival.

Owens Library celebrated its 1 1th anniversary in March. The library had seen many changes over the years and this year was no exception. One of the most noticeable was the advent of the debit card. The card cost $ 1 and came with 50 cents of credit already on the card. Students ce uld add money to their card as needed. " We knew several libraries that had the debit card technology so we waited while they tested it, " Georgene Timko, library director, said. Though the cost of copies rose from the previous 5 cents a page, students using the cards received a discount of copying materials as well as copying documents from the microfiche. Those using the card could copy documents for 7 cents. For those using change, the cost was 10 cents per copied page. Students had mixed feelings about the new copi- ers. " They were good for organizations that did a lot of copying because it was cheaper for them, " Karyn Hallberg said. " I didn ' t really like them, though. They were kind of confusing and the prices were higher than previous years. " Another noticeable change was the classification of the periodicals. Often people would not find the periodical they were searching for on microfilm or fiche and didn ' t realize it had been in a bound volume on the second tloor. Two years ago, a space utilization task force for the library decided to move the microfilm and microfiche to be with the periodi- cals. " Now if you could not find it on the fiche or film you could walk a couple of steps to the bound periodicals or current issue and find what you were ' ' We start- ed this last spring and it ' s been a huge suc- cess. Library Director Georgene Timko said. looking for, " Timko said. " The other problem was the periodicals were still in alphabetical order by title. " Timko said the idea of alphabetical ar- rangement seemed easy enough, but of- ten journals and periodicals would change their name and the rest of the periodical would be across the library. " The new system was resourceful, " Terri Wheelhouse said. " I found what I needed. " Another problem was journals for a specific topic could be found anywhere throughout the periodicals. To solve the problem, the library decided to use clas- sification numbers. " This way if they changed titles, the call number would be slightly different, but they would be next to each other on the shelf, " Timko said. " It also put the sub- ject areas together. " One of the changes Timko was most proud of was Owens Paper Plus. Owens Paper Plus was a library service that matched up students who had in-depth research papers with a librarian who would help them re- search the subject of their paper. The service was availabletoany sophomore, junior, senior or gradu- ate student who was enrolled in a 200 or above level class. " We started last spring and it was a huge success, " Timko said. " Over a six-week summer session, we did 1 18 Plus sessions. Librarians from other univer- sities did not always believe we did that many. " The library changes took some getting used to for students and faculty, but students seemed to adjust gradually the more familiar they became and addi- tional changes were being planned for the upcoming academic year.

' That question was directed to students as young as junior high age. and haunted students who were completing their third, fourth or even fifth year in college. Yet the question remained unanswered, and for many it was a decision they wished to not leap unknowingly into. " I wanted to keep my options open. " freshman Lisa Giltner said, " l would not declare one (major) until I had to. so 1 didn ' t jump into a field that I wouldn ' t like in the long run. So many people ended up changing their majors, and I didn ' t want to be faced with that. " Entering a college or university as an " undeclared " however, could create soine unique problems in itself. .Seminar classes for beginning students, curricu- lum guidelines and even living environ- ments could be sorely disrupted if a person made a hasty choice on the first try. " It ' s taken me years to be happy. " family relations major Michelle Rogers said. " I ' ve been everything from pre-mcd to psychology, and only now was 1 satisfied with the choice I made. That was not to mention how much happier I was with everything in general. It was much easier when I felt 1 had a purpose. " Other students faced problems similar to Rogers, not wanting tojump into a commitment w ithout any thought. " It was hard for me to decide on a major because I wanted to enjoy the job in the future. I also realized that I wanted more than just money, " junior Kristy Hofmeister, a transfer student from Southwest Col- lege in Clarinda, Iowa said. There were those individuals, however, who went right into school knowing what they wanted and " wanted to keep my options open, " Lisa Giltner said. " did not want to pimp into a field I would not like in the long run. " quickly determined then- major. Kristi Sweeney, a psychology major, did just that. " I wanted to know why people did the things they did and to understand why they said w hat they said. " Sweeney said. For those undecided freshmen, a fresh- man seminar course geared directly to- wards their diverse needs w as offered. In the class, tests were taken to determine what careers a student would enjoy and was suited for. " We took a trip to the Career Services office one class period and learned more about different majors. " Travis Carton said. " It helped tne put things into per- spective. " Some students thought they knew what they wanted, but soon learned that another career would better suit them. " One thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to help develop childrens ' knowledge. " Kara Hagerty said. Hagerty had declared elementary education as her major, but considered changing it soon after school began. There were others who practically fell into a particular career choice and stuck with it through graduation. " When I first started, early childhood develop- ment was a part of early education classes, " Caria Huskey said. " Later it was offered as something totally unique and I decided since I had done so much work toward it. to retain it as a double major. " Whether an individual was sold from their very first day of school, or if they took years to try and fail before they decided, the right " major " career deci- sion could make all the difference in the worid for their lifetime goals and how they spent the rest of their lives.

As students and faculty members visited London, Russia and Hungary they experienced, firsthand, different cultures and historical sites. " There was really no substitute to ex- periencing a different culture, " Dr. Charles Schultz said. " It was so wonder- ful because it was living history. You saw and heard what you had been reading about all those years. It was a living visual aid and you could not duplicate it through slides and movies. " The London program allowed students to spend a semester i n London studying at the Imperial College. The program was initiated five years ago by Dr. Richard Fulton. In the spring of 1992 five Northwest students participate d in the program. During the semester each student took 12 credit hours that transferred back to Northwest. One class that was required by all students was British life and culture. Every Tuesday a different lecturer would speak to the class about what they would see on their field trip the next day. Some of the places the class toured were Parliament, House of Lords and Stonehenge. " 1 thought it (studying in London) was wonder- ful. " ' Debbie Over said. " I learned the similarities and differences between the cultures. It was really neat to actually see the things I learned about in class. " Besides being separated from the lives they were accustomed to, the group had to adjust to the British way of speaking and living. " It was two nations. Great Britain and America, divided behind a common language, " Schultz said. Another aspect of English culture that was very " There was no substitute to experienc- ing a differ- ent culture, " Dr. Charles Schultz. " It was wonder- ful beacuse it was living history. " different from America was the easy go- ing attitude. According to Schultz, the English people ' s attitude was to do something if the national scandal waseffected, but if it was irritating, just sweep it under the carpet. " Americans were always in a rush, " Over said. " Over there it was a relaxed atmosphere; over here I was always stressed. " With six field trips and the long week- ends to explore London and other parts of England on their own, it was hard to determine what was the best experience of the semester. " The whole thing really stood out, " Gillian Neslund said. " 1 loved the people and the atmosphere. " Another opportunity that some stu- dents took advantage of was exploring the rest of the continent of Europe. During spring break, several students traveled throughout Europe by train. The group spent the night sleeping on the train and toured cities such as Berlin, Nice, Rome and Barcelona. " We were able to see so much, " Over said. " It was exciting to know that at 20, 1 went to all those cities and got along without knowing the language. " Because of the length of stay, students had to fend for themselves with matters such as finances, which helped the students become more independent. " 1 was independent before, but when I was over there for awhile I learned to become more indepen- dent, " Neslund said. " I had to set up my own bank account, and I couldn ' t run home for anything. I was truly independent. " During the semester, Schultz was able to see 35 stage shows. -continued W ritten by Fay Dahlqttist Foreign Studies 121 After teaching in London for a semester.

" As students were returning frnni their experience in London, others were psyching up for their trip to Russia and Hungary. This trip was not only a sightseeing trip, but a once in a lifetime trip. Several weeks after school ended in May, a group of students and faculty members traveled Eastern Europe for two weeks. The trip consisted of both countries, so the stu- dents could get a feel of the drastic changes occur- ring in Russia. " Things were happening so quickly in Eastern Europe, " Dr. Richard Frucht said. " Trips like this, if they were done well, were cultural experiences that would stay with them the rest of their life. " The group first went to Russia where they saw sights such as Summer and Winter Palaces, Red Square and the Kremlin. " It was a wonderful learning experience, " Sara Hosford said. " 1 was really nervous about it before we left, about the Russian people, because when we were young we were taught the Russian people were our enemies. " Hungary ' s switch from a communistic state to a more democratic way of life was the purpose behind the group ' s tour of the country.

" There was a big difference between east and west. " Unlike those in London, the Eastern Europe group had a definite language barrier. With the assistance of tour guides and youths that spoke some English, the barrier became a minimal problem. " After I had been in that situation for awhile I became more adept with sign language and body language, " Wilcox said. Russia was under tough conditions po- litically, socially and economically, but the new-found freedoms were very ap- parent. " In St. Petersburg groups of small brass bands would burst out with " Battle Hymn of the Republic " or something that the tourists would enjoy, " Dr. Bruce Litte said. " They hoped to get tips for these things. " Wilcox and Litte left the group to travel other countries in Eastern Europe, such as Austria, and Poland. They said on their travels they met many interesting people and had wonderful experiences. Litte met a woman at the Opera House in Prague, who was orginally from Maryville and who was the second cousin of B.D. Owens. Litte also had a moving experience when he met some people play- ing the same folk songs that his grandparents used to sing. " " That was half-way around the world, " Litte said. " " Those were always exciting experiences. " Students did not just travel overseas to tour a different country, they learned about different cul- tures, saw historical sites and experienced many wonderful memories they took home with them. ' Written by Fay Dahlquist Foreign Studies 123 Dratv backs, benefits found as c Students Pursue Double Majors ompleting a double major was not a task that many students were willing to undertake. The amount of time, effort and dedication required was enough to send some scurrying to their advisers to get their second major dropped, while others felt it was a task they were ready to handle. " I didn ' t feel any drawbacks to having a double major. " My la Brooks, a journal- ism and broadcasting major said. " All I felt were the benefits. " The reasons for pursuing a double ma- jor varied for each person. For Doug Martin, it was so he could obtain a variety of information in his chosen fields, the- ater and public relations. Martin ' s public relations major provided a safety net in case his career as an entertainer fell through. " I liked diversity in a field, " Martin said. " I did not like to concentrate in one area. " Amy BelTs reasons were slightly different. To her, double majoring in elementary education and early childhood development represented a way to enhance her knowledge about the children she would be working with. She also thought it would help her become more marketable to the schools she applied to. After deciding to obtain a double major, the ne.xt step was to decide what the other major would be. Martin chose public relations and theater because they both dealt with the public and working with people. These two areas gave him that opportunity. " I enjoyed both areas very much, " Martin said. Bell ' s double major made her more specialized and thus she had more knowledge about how to better help the children she would teach. " I could not picture myself doing anything else, " " You weren ' t stuck in one area. Wljenyou got out, it madeyou more mar- ketable " Doug Mar- tin said. Bell said. Brooks chose a double major for many of the same reasons. However, her cho- sen fields were closely related. " Having a journalism and a broadcast- ing major could make me more market- able, " Brooks said. " Not only could I get a job working for a magazine or a news- paper, I could get a job on a television or radio station. " Bell was not only a double major, she juggled a variety of activities that af- fected how much study time she had. In order to deal with this she used many lists and got little sleep at times. " I had to know where my priorities were, " Bell stated. There were benefits, however, that made having a double major worth while. For Bell, the advantage was getting to spend time with children. " I loved little kids, " Bell said. " It (the double major) gave me more time with them. " This enabled her to learn about how to deal with everyday problems that arose in a typical school setting. Another advantage was that it made a career change much easier. " People looked at the experience I had, " Martin said. " I had the opportunity for a career change. " No one would deny that a double major was a hard task to accomplish, but any double major would encourage it. Completing a double major was a time-consum- ing task that few people were willing to undertake. However, there were a tiw brave souls who thought that the benefits far outweighed the problems pursu- ing a double major could cause. For them the effort and hard work that they put into their majors would reap its own reward.

Hot Wheels cars raced across beige carpet, through a sturdy Lincoln Log tunnel, past a Fisher Price farm with its wide-eyed, wooden people, tending to motionless, plastic animals and over a stack of Sesame Street and Walt Disney story books. A fuzzy, brown teddybear watched the proceed- ings with solemn, button eyes, next to a fat pig with a curly tail and velvet snout. This was the kingdom of a four-year-old boy named Dakota; a child who knew very little about the world that belonged to his mother. A world that held her special dreams of higher education and self-fulfillment. Kim Carroll, surrounded by the handi- work of her young son ' s burst of creati v- ity , sat in a Lazy-Boy recliner with her feet tucked up underneath her to avoid stepping on marbles and a massacre of plastic cowboys and Indians. Carroll, a tall, brunette with startling aqua eyes that sparkled with good humor and wisdom, looked too young to be a mother, too mature to be a student. But, she was both. At 27, Carroll, a single parent and a senior major- ing in psychology, said she went back to school to make a better life for herself and her son. " As a hairdresser I brought in a decent paycheck, " Carroll said. " However, that wasn ' t always enough to give my son all the extra things I felt he deserved, and things I deserved as well. Pursuing my degree had become a real priority, because not only would it ultimately give me a greater .sense of self-esteem, but also a greater financial security in the future. " Although her academic career at Northwest was extremely important to Carroll, her son was equally " Pursuing my degree became a real priori- ty. It gave me a sense ofself- esteem and security, " Kim Car- roll said. so. In fact, Carroll says, she had to leave class on several occasions to be with Dakota, but her instructors in general had been understanding of her situation. " Most of my teachers had been great, " Carroll said. " They knew if my child was sick, I had to stay home with him. For example, one of my teachers said to me " Kim, I understand that there are much more important things in your life than school. ' And it was true, too. Being a good mother was just as important, if not more so, than being a good student. " Clad in dark blue shorts and matching sweatshirt, Carroll looked like the typical fresh-faced college coed. " Some teachers didn ' t realize that, " Carroll said. " They thought school should be your entire life. If I were 1 8 and unencumbered it could be. But that was not my case and it was really nice to have faculty like Mr. (David) McLaughlin, who were not only sym- pathetic, but were willing to work with me, espe- cially during those times when I had to miss a test because my child had an ear infection. " Carroll was just one of the rapidly increasing number of people juggling the complicated role of parent and student. Across town from Carroll ' s quaint, brick home was a four room apartment belonging to a young couple struggling successfully under the weight of textbooks and baby formula. Seated side-by-side on a worn sofa, Jeff and Jody Read, both 22-years-old, held hands affectionately, their entwined fingers resting near a rubber doll with blonde, frizzy hair. Like Carroll ' s home, the irre- pressible enthusiasm of a child was evident in the well used toys which frolicked with haphazard mer- riment across the floor-stuffed animals tumbling -continued y W ritten by Kim Todd Dakota busily plays with his toy truck while his mother, Kim Carroll, studies forclass.

This was the work of Chelsea, a 10 1 2 month-old little girl with a crop of brown curls, one front tooth missing and two, big, beautiful eyes which looked at the world with wonder. Jeff Read sat back with one ankle resting casually on his knee. His wife Jody wore shorts and a sweatshirt, her bare legs crossed, her body turned just slightly toward her husband. Currently in graduate school at Northwest, Jody had an undergraduate degree in accounting already under her belt. " I thought the hardest thing about going to school and raising a family, was that there was very little time to study, " Read said. " With Chelsea around climbing up on our lap, playing with our papers and books, it was impossible to get any homework done. " " Jeff, a family environmental resources major, who planned to pick up a biology education degree next year, chuckled at his wife " s words. " Studying was difficult, " " Jeff said. " But the hard- est thing for me personally, was taking her to the babysitter. " " " Because of school, we had to leave her Tuesdays and Thursdays, ' " Jody said. " Those days were really rough, " " Jeff said. " Be- cause I could tell, she knew she was going. She kind of whined and cried a little bit and it was tough. " " Chelsea stirred in the next room, which triggered Jody retrieve their child. The hard- est thing to school and raising a family was the little time to study, " Jody Read said. " We were really lucky, " ' Jeff said. " My parents lived in town, Jody and I both had good jobs. I worked at Hy- Vee and Jody at the University. And we also received financial aid. Of course, it about going would have been really great if the Uni- versity had on-campus day care. " The Reads were not the only ones at Northwest who saw a future bound by family ties. Rita and Kyle Wallinga, had a one-year-old son named Sam. " I suppose it would have been easier if we both would have gotten jobs, but we were determined to finish school, " Rita said. " The most important thing about being a parent and a student was that we were striving to improve not only our life, but that of our child as well. By going after our dreams, we will impart the pur- suit of excellence to the child. They will meet their challenge with eagerness. " The parents knew their child ' s future depended upon the stability of their own, and a college educa- tion was the only answer they could live with. They strove to be the best they could because they realized that a life other than one ' s own was dependent upon their performance. That was all they needed to remember to get them through the rough times so they could concentrate on the future. Students who took on the demanding role of parents faced life with an optimism combined with determination. Their lives were ones filled with Saturday morning cartoons, Froot Loops, mid-term exams, Santa Claus, late-night study sessions, Kool- Aid on the couch and Kodak moments. They knew the hardships of late-night feedings and the joy of seeing their child take that first, wobbly step. They were the present holding the small, sticky hand of the future.

Students as Parents 129 Fight for student ' s tnt ti Left Versus H Right cmispheric speciulizatiDii was prob- ably not the first thing " on students ' minds " as they went about their daily tasks, but whether they realized it or not. the hemispheres of their brain were at battle to complete such simple tasks as brushing their teeth, answering a ques- tion in class or listening to the radio. According to the book Psychology Themes and Variations by Wayne Weiten. some researchers had a theory that the brain was divided into two hemi- spheres: the left brain and the right brain, each of which was capable of performing different functions. " I had always been told about the theory, but I didn ' t have any evidence that it was true, " Brian Peterson said. " I thought that there were two different sides of the brain. I thought there was a more visual side and an analytical side, but not necessarily right brain left brain. " Although the idea of right brain left brain was not set in stone scientifically speaking, students had opinions on which side of their brains they func- tioned best with. " I would have to say I was more right-brained, for the simple fact that I hated math and science, " Amanda Endicott said. " I got bored easily and had to create things so my attention span was not so short and I was not bored. If I did different things each day I remembered that day better than if I was doing the same things. " Through research many psychologists had deter- mined that each side of the brain had special charac- teristics of its own. They deduced that the left brain specialized in analytical thinking, concentrating on subjects such as math, language, science and writ- ing. The right brain handled nonverbal tasks, such as I was left- brained because I was very analytical about every- thing, " Tim Cham- pion said. art appreciation, fantasy and creativity. Each hemisphere had its own way of processing the verbal and nonverbal in- formation they experienced. " I was left-brained because I was very analytical about everything, " Tim Champion said. " 1 prided myself in my problem solving skills. I definitely have less right-brain characteristics. " A discovery in brain studies revealed that eye movement during the thought process was directly related to the hemi- spheres - tho.se who moved their eyes to the right when solving a verbal problem were most likely thinking with the left side of their brain and vice versa. " If I did believe in the theory some of those modes of thinking I would have believed and some 1 wouldn ' t have, " Peterson said. " For instance, I thought that the theory wasn ' t true verbally, because if I was talking about a dog I couldn ' t visualize one. " Since there were two different hemispheres of the brain, sometimes there was a conflict between their experiences. According to some versions of this theory, the two streams of consciousness alter- nated in controlling overt behavior, sometimes wag- ing a battle for control (Weiten). For instance, the right brain would battle the left for control over certain functions, such as logical thinking versus intuition. " I ' m definitely right-brained, " Cindy Utslersaid. " I was creatively talented, but my scientific and math skills were less developed. I thought you were born one way or the other. " Although there was no solid evidence about hemispheric specialization, many students seemed to spend time tr ing to understand why the different parts of their brains worked the way they did.

It was a day made for mourning and ancient, magic rituals. Only the building seemed immune to the merciless elements; it seemed to almost relish them. Made of stern stone, the edifice was filled with depressing halls that were permeated with odors one might find in a morgue. This was not Norman Bate ' s hilltop mansion. Instead, professors in lab coats gave technical lectures while students fractioned logarithms and dis- sected frogs. This was Garrett-Strong, the science and math building. Though goblins did not roam freely through the halls, some students pro- fessed to having " Garrett-phobia. " Mar- keting and business management major Tresa Breedlove was just one of those afflicted students. " The place was like something out of a horror novel, " Breedlove said. " It was really creepy. I expected something horrible to just jump out at me at every corner. " Breedlove thought Garrett-Strong both drab and depressing. " The building was so sterile, it was really dreary, " she said. " A lot of the rooms did not have any windows, so I got the sensation of being locked away from the world, like I was in a prison cell or deep in the bowels ofsome underground crypt. I had to admit it seemed like every class I ever dreaded taking was over in that building. " In agreement with Breedlove. accounting major Leilani Greenfield said she would not have wanted to be in the building at night. " It was kind of spooky. " Greenfield said. " Like «r the setting for one of those B-rated slasher films. I could almost see Michael sensution of Myers coming out of one of the class- rooms. " being locked unlike Breedlove. Becky Wynne did not feel that Garrett-Strong was particu- larly " creepy. " " I did not see that the building was all that depressing, " Wynne said. " Of course, it was clinical, but that was an important aspect in establishing a con- structive environment for people seri- ously studying both mathematics and the arious sciences like zoology or agricul- ture. I felt that a more studious and sani- tary environment was appropriate. I did enjoy all the classes I had over there. " Even though most of the faculty in the Garrett-Strong building ould not admit to sharing some of their students ' views regarding its more gloomier aspects. Dr. Don Hagan. head of the geography department, said he thought that it was common for students to feel very uncomfortable in such a cold environment. " Science buildings in general had disconcerting smells and a very different atmosphere than other buildings, " Hagan said. " With the skeletons, dino- saur bones, all the specimens in jars and the chemi- cals, I could understand how students could find it intimidating. " Hagan was not exactly the mad scientist type believed to be inhabiting Garrett-Strong, but stand- ing outside on a cold day vvhile lightning zig-zagged off in the distance and somewhere dogs howled, one might find a shiver snaking its way up the spine, or hair at the back of the neck prickling. Do not be afraid of things that go bump. It was probably only a malfunctioning science project. After all, even Dr. Frankenstein was a student at one time. aivay from the world, like I was in a cell or deep in the bowels ofsome crypt, " Tresa Breedlove said. r Written by Kim Todd 132 Garrett Phobia Garrett Phobia 133 134 Advertising »1AU «• ' Promotions strive to tnuke Northtvest The Ultiniate Choice w, YOUP UlTlhPTf CtOCt -vVfi New idei) cassettes, radio spots and TV commercials pro mot my the elec- tronic campus and academic programs will soon replace the old recruitment ma - terials.

Northwest em- barked on a en- ture to promote the campus. The Uni- versity decided that the best wa) to do this was to dc vote time and money to a major ad catnpaign. The advertising plan would utilize television, ratlio and print ads which would be used in areas sur- rounding Maryville such as, Kansas City, Des Moines and Omaha. The phrase, " " Northwest-your ultimate choice " was agreed on by a committee of " faculty and staff members to be used as the slogan. Professional production companies and advertis- ing agencies bid on the plan and three were selected to present their ideas to a committee which would vote on the company to represent the University. The committee, consisting of Dave Gieseke, Ken White, John Jasinski, Bob Henry. Michael Walsh, and Carol Gieseke, then decided on what company had the best presentation for Northwest. The final decision would be based on cost, determined by bids known by Wanda Auffert, and the recommendation of the committee. Newspaper and radio ads would began as early as spring and summer, with the TV ads to begin in the fall. It was thought that including the completed Lamkin Gym renovations, graduation and Home- coming activities, would enhance the campus image which the L. ' niversity wished to portray. Some ads were targeted toward the patents of pro- speclise students, and emphasi ed the location, si e. cost. a ailabilily of scholarships and the quality of Northwest pro- grams. Ads di- rected at prospec- Ii e students cen- tered around the electronic campus, the look of the campus and also on the quality of programs from siudenls " points of view. " The specific siudeiii we were looking at was the one w ho wanted to go to a medium-si ed college in a rural setting, that wanted to be challenged, " Walsh said. " We needed to market an institution that was geared to prepare students for a rapidly changing world. We were not educating them for a career, but rather we were educating them for life. " According to Walsh, the committee planned to gather input from student groups, faculty and ad- ministrators on what Northwest ' s strengths and weaknesses were and also helped to ensure that the advertisements communicated what best repre- sented Northw est. The project, which would cost appro.ximately ,$200,000 over two years, was hoped to be workable for several years without seeming dated. As the University looked toward the future, the need to continue recruiting potential students was acted upon with the help of a sophisticated public relations plan.

This phrase was imprinled in many minds at an early age and was something everyone had to do if they wanted to excel. Practice was also the dominant theory behind practicums and something many students had to do if they wanted to graduate. These experiences were meant to provide hands-on work in a student " s chosen field of study. They enabled stu- dents to get the feel of being on a real Job. Practicums existed in many fields in- cluding education, journalism and broadcasting and they involved a great amount of time. Practicums involved working in classrooms at Horace Mann Lab School for education students, year- book and newspaper assignments for journalism students and radio and televi- sion productions for broadcasting stu- dents. Many education majors said they thought being able to actually get into the classroom setting and being able to see how the teacher dealt with the students helped them get a sense of what it would be like in their own classrooms. • ' Education majors had to observe in the classroom for 30 hours, usually by the beginning of their sophomore year, " Stephanie Schawang said. " These experiences gave ideas and helped me think about what I would do in a particular situation thmk not t)f myself but of being a team " If I made player whose job was to put out a great I paper.

The radio practicum mixed fun with learning. " It was a good way to get on-air experi- ence, where if 1 made a inistake on the air I could pick myself up and call it a learn- ing experience, " Andrea Schmidt, news director of KDLX, said. " Whereas if 1 would have been performing on a real job, I could have gotten fired for the same mistake. " Chnsti Whitten, who was the anchor of " Chalk Talk, " a show about Northwest sports, said employ- ers took interest after looking at a resume and seeing that a person had done work in practicums. Whitten said the end result of practicums also provided gratification. " All of the hard work and extra hours paid off in the end, " Whitten said. " Be it a final production of a show, a newspaper right off the press or a fresh, brand-new smelling yearbook, when you looked at it a learn- ing experi- ence, " Andrea Schmidt said.

Dr. Frances Shipley, Dean of the Graduate School, believed that the best way to gain knowledge was through ac- tual work-related activities and the assis- tantship program provided that. " There were different types of gradu- ate assistantships, " Shipley said. " There were research, teaching, administrative and tutorial assistantships. " There were over 100 graduate assis- tants at Northwest. Lisa Jobe was work- ing on her Doctorate in Business Admin- istration and was one of two graduate assistants in the President ' s office. " The graduate assistantship was a very good pro- gram, " Jobe said. " 1 talked to many other graduates from numerous other schools and they all said they thought Northwest ' s program was exceptional. " Jobe thought one of the best aspects of the pro- gram was that it allowed her to gain first-hand experience. " Working in the President ' s office was wonder- ful, " Jobe said. " The people were terrific and I gained a lot of very useful knowledge and pert ' ected some skills that made me ready for a specialized marketing position when I graduated. " Mary Ward who was also a graduate assistant in the President ' s office, said the assistantship added significantly to her resume. " I was working on my MBA and the grad assistant program gave me a chance to gain more concrete experience, " Ward said. " I learned so much in the President ' s office and having such experience on a " thought the program alloived grad assistants to stretch their wings a little and see how it was going to be in the real world, " Lori Johyison said. resume was a real employer attention- getter. It was also very satisfying work that 1 enjoyed. " Lori Johnson was working on her MBA and was the assistant in the Gradu- ate office. Johnson said she could not understand how someone would be a graduate student without at least apply- ing for an assistantship. " It was great, " Johnson said. " I gained on-the-job training and learned so much practical knowledge that it really added to my graduate studies. " Johnson enjoyed numerous aspects of the job, citing not only the financial gains, but primarily the priceless train- ing. Because she had plans to become a personnel director involved in the area of human environmental resources. John- son said the assistantship strengthened her desire to work for a smaller, more personalized university. " The financial benefits were great and working hands-on was more interesting than studying in a classroom, " Johnson said. " 1 thought the program allowed graduate assistants to stretch their wings a little and see how it was going to be in the real world. The assistantship program was a tool to help me in my search forexcellence. It allowed me to attain my goal of having a career in a very competitive mar- ket. " Excellence and a desire to be the best was some- thing faculty members and professors encouraged in all of their students. For those who made a concen- trated effort to become involved in the difficult, yet rewarding training programs the school offered, the achievement seemed that much closer to attaining. Many of the graduate assistants at Northwest found their programs fulfilled long-time goals. I -Written by Kim Todd Graduate assistant. Lon Johnson, checks a survey for the Graduate Office.

Other classes that would seem to be of equally simple credit, however, were taken by many students for various rea- sons. Some of the classes did prove to be terrific grade point average boosters, but some students thought others simply were not worth the time, trouble or effort they required. One example of a class that turned out to be more trouble than unsuspecting students thought it was worth was Eth- nographic Film Study. This class could have been taken to fill an elective for communication majors or as a social and cultural credit for others. " I just took it to fulfill my elective, " Martin Miller said. " The way it sounded in the course handbook made it seem like we were just going to kick back and watch some movies. " In reality, the classes studied the different social and cultural backgrounds that were covered in film and watching the films was not the only thing students were required to do. " We had to do in-depth case studies, research and critique films, " Miller said. " To top it off. the tests were much harder than I had expected. It took up a lot more of my time than I had planned. " Blaine Eastridge had a similar experience with Casting and Angling. Eastridge took this course to fill his credit. " I just needed the credit, " Eastridge said. " I did not expect to do much in the class. We did more than I thought we would, but it was still pretty easy. " Some students who had a recreation major found that manv of their classes sounded like " blow- offs. " but turned into something that required a bit more effort and were ex- tremely time consuming. Brian Williamson, a physical education major, expected to devote a considerable amount of time to the cla.sses required for his major, but still there were some that were a huge surprise. One class that he had thought would be easy was Foundations of Physical Education. This class turned out to be harder than he had anticipated and more time was required than he expected. my time than Although Williamson had checked into I had " We had to do in-depth case studies, research and critique fihns. It took up a lot more of planned, " Martin Miller said. what was involved in the class before enrolling, he was still surprised by the course ' s outline. " They switched teachers on us at the last minute, " Williamson said. " It was harder than it had been for students in the past. I had to do several papers and spend extra time that I had not planned for on the class. " Another example of a class w hich required more effort than students had initially expected was Human Sexuality. Shelley Clites encountered this situation. " I took Human Sexuality to fill an elective, " Clites said. " I had heard that it was easy. It turned out that there were more papers to write and more work to do than 1 had originally thought or planned on. It still was not that hard of a class, though. " In order to get enough credits to graduate, many older students enrolled in some last-minute courses and struggled to fulfill their general education requirements. Some students were shocked at the difficulty of a few of these courses. " Like most seniors trying to graduate, I scrambled to get all my credits done and out of the way, " Steve Rhodes said. " The only general educa- Written by Katie Harrison Looking over his Con- cepts of Math test, Jim Mathiesen realizes the class is not as easy as he had thought.

I thought it M)uld be a fairly easy course since it w as only a 200 level in the handbook. " Rhodes was sadly mistaken however, as the course turned out to be somewhat of a hassle for him. The extra time he wound up devoting to the class was quite a surprise. " Before the end of the semester ii be- came one of my most time consuming classes, " Rhodes said. " We had daily readings, frequent quizzes and in-depth tests. 1 found myself really having to work hard to keep up with the class. " A similar problem was encountered by Scott Vater when he enrolled in Public Opinion, the News Media and Politics. The class was not what he expected and surely not one that he was fond of. " I was leery of the class in the beginning just because of the title. " Vater said. " I had thought that the class would deal only with how the media influenced and retlected on politics. It turned into basically a government course. I was not fluent m government and I did not like it at all. " Vater also had to devote extra time to the course w hich w as suggested to him by his adviser. He took her advice and was surprised with the outcome. " My adviser put me in it. " Vater said. " She said that it would be a really good learning experience for me. I took it for an elective; it was a nightmare. It turned out to be one of my worst memories of academics at Northwest. " On the other hand, there were classes like Social Dance, that did prove to be grade-point boosters for some. For students who had a genuine interest in the activity, a class like this one could have easily been a " blow-off course. " 1 took social dance because I Uncd to dance, " Jennifer Stewart said. " I knew it an elective it " ■ " l ' I ' J he an easy class for me because I liked the subject. There we re some people in ms class that dancing did not come easy for and the did not enjoy it like I did. " Some students enrolled in classes that sounded eas just to fulfill their eleclise credits. Many of these students ended up with their hands full. After experiencing this problem once, many students sought an opinion from a triend or classmate who had taken the class with the same instructor before enrolling in the fateful course. " I would have definitely found some- one w ho w as in the class before I was and asked them w hat it was really like before 1 enrolled. " Stacey Hansen said. " I w oukl ne cr I ust go by the course description in the Student Handbook. " This advice was reaffirmed by many students who were faced with " blow-off " classes, or what they thought were easy classes, at some point in their academic careers. " If I had it to do all over again, I would have explored the class from all angles, " Vater said. " I would not just take it because my adviser told me to. The class could very well be not only a course that you hate, but also be damaging to your final transcript as mine was for me. " It seemed that students took pity on their younger, more vulnerable peers. After having to go through the problems themselves, many stu- dents did not want their fellow classmates to have to face the same awful trials and tribulations that they had encountered in their long, painful search for the ultimate " blow-off classes. took it for was a night- mare. It turned out to be one of my worst memo- ries of aca- demics at Northwest, " Scott Vater said.

Cutting out the department and its fac- ulty, which were located in the Valk Building and Thompson Ringold, would save the University an estimated $407,000. This amount was a large por- tion of the $1.1 million cut which would be made by the University over a three- year period. These budget cutbacks had to be made due to a reduction of state funding and the defeat of Proposition B. a legislative measure designed to provide money to Missouri schools. Many students and faculty members thought that despite the savings of funds and the small size of the department, it should ha e remained a part of Northwest. " Because the department was so small, it would not hurt the school. " " Brian Malesker. technology student, said. " ' But as far as the students go. I did not know where they would attend, because there was not another school around here. " " Other students felt that the closing of the depart- ment would hurt the University and enrollment would also drop. " I thought that it hurt the University because w hen they got rid of the department they lost students, " Scott Daniels said. " They had a pretty good program for the money it cost here. " " Charles Anderla, acting chairman of the Technol- ogy Department, noted there were many students who were affected by the department ' s closing. " There were 120 majors and minors plus other people who took the classes, " Anderla said. " Two " thought that it hurt the Universi- ty because ivhen they got rid of the department they lost students, " Scott Daniels said. hundred or more people were affected. " Students also had opinions on the ef- fects that closing the department had on them. " Technology was something we needed and they should have given us more time than just one year to finish it, " Daniels said. Fitting in all of the required courses in the short time allowed was handled in different ways by students. Some stu- dents found themselves taking a semes- ter which was filled with technology courses and nothing else. " It pressed a lot of students. " " Dennis Brincks said. " Working 15 to 20 hours a week plus taking 1 7 to 18 hours of tech- nology classes was not fair to the stu- dents. ' " Other students. v ho were further along in their majors, found the rush to take classes was not an inconvenience. " All 1 had to do was push up my four or five classes in the department from the spring semester to the fall before. " " Kent Fuller said. " 1 did have to work full- time and take 18 hours of credit. " " The Technology Department arranged it so that all students had the option to fit m the technology courses that they needed to fulfill their major re- quirements. " Besides hiring extra faculty, everybody worked extra hours and the students also took extra hours. " " Anderla said. Students were pleased that they would not be forced to change their major or transfer to another .school with a Technology Department. " They worked it out so we could get the classes we needed in.

I did not want to change my major or transfer because I had already started here at Northwest. " A few rules were bent to allow students to take the required technology courses as quickly as needed. Some students thought this led to poor education. " The students did not get as quality of an education this semester because of the rush and the instructors who were brought in were not as qualified as those who left. " Fuller said. Anderla thought that though hurrying to take courses, the students received the same attention and instruction as they normally would have. " Some of the students had to bypass the general education requirements to take all the technology classes required said. " I did not think any of the instructors let up on anybody. " Besides the inconvenience of crowding technol- ogy courses into their schedules, faculty and stu- dents were also bothered by the construction being done in the Valk Building. Plans were made to move the coaches offices from Lamkin Gym (which was being renovated) temporarily to Hake Hall. Upward Bound and Student Serxices, which operated in Hake Hall would then be moved permanently to the Valk Building. Adapting the Valk Building to fit the needs of these organizations disrupted faculty and students. " For two weeks we did not have any bathroom facilities, " Anderla said. These inconveniences bothered students who thought that since they were paying for their educa- tion, they should be treated better. " didii ' t thi ik that if you were trying to make a university larger that you should close a department dotvn, " Jason Brown said. Anderla The students were not the only ones who were affected by the closing of the Technology Department. Seven faculty members lost their Jobs due to the close of the department. Anderla was one of the technology staff members who chose to leave North- west in the middle of the spring semester to pursue another job opportunity. Tem- porary replacement instructors were used to fill in and to teach added courses. Former Northwest student, Kay Wil- son, took over Anderla ' s technology classes. Anderla left Northwest on March . " i to take over a segment of the printing department at the University of Kansas. Students in other majors who were not directly affected by the closing of the department did not understand the rea- soning behind the decision to close. " I didn ' t think that if you were trying to make a university larger that you should close a department down, regardless of what it was. " Jason Brown said. A few students in the Technology Department thought that closing the department would not have a great affect on Northwest, but students interested in the technology field would notjust disappear. The need for a technology program still existed. " It would not have hurt the University as a whole, " Fuller said. " Not everyone would be a liberal arts major, there would always be students interested in the field. " For the students in the Technology Department, time was passing quicker than anticipated. The closing of the department affected more than just students with a technology major or minor, but faculty members, other students and the University as a whole felt the impact.

Upgrading Northwest c hanges hud been occuring acrciss the country. thmughcHit the year and things were no different at Northwest Missouri State Uni ersit . Since 1 984 w hen Dean Hubbard first began work as president, upgrading Northwest was a main goal. Increasing financial reserve and raising faculty salaries to competitive prices were just a few im- pro ements for the University in past years. Signifi- cant changes were made by de eloping und ergradu- ate education and upgrading and titili ing every aspect of the University. Being president of a university was difficult and time management became one of the key issues in staying on top of work and accomplishing goals. Hubbard also mentioned that communication and optimism were key aspects of success. " You had to belie e in the importance of w hat this institution was all about and in the alue of commit- ting time and energy to accomplishing goals of the institution. " Huhbard said. " I thought communica- tion was fundamental to all of that. " Throughout the year Hubbard not only carried out his many duties as president, but spent many dedicated hours w ith other concerned leaders on campus in adopting and assessing the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The Baldrige award was given to six top business organizations in the country each year and although higher education institutions did not qualify, the criteria for this award became an important aspect to Northwest. Hubbard was chosen by the National Institute on Standards and Technology as the first University president in the nation to serve as a Baldrige examiner and he applied this award following seven criteria to improv ement and excellence. Lead- ership, information, planning, human resource training and effective deployment, good processes, monitored results and satisfaction to those who depended on the organizations ser- V ices were qualities necessary forthe successful functioning of any organization. Along with a combined student and faculty member committee Hubbard hoped to " achieve new plateaus " thought in i few years we IV oil Id rank top in the nation among this type of insti- tution, " President Dean Hub- bard said. of quality. " " 1 VI. anted to develop students ' talents to the fullest extent possible. " Hubbaid said. " Talent develop- ment was how I defined quality. If we could take students " talents and help develop them more than what any other institution could do then we had genuinely added value to students " lives and that was w hat I thought was our basic purpose and the reason we changed and adapted. " " Although the Baldrige assessment was an impor- tant part of the year. Hubbard " s time was devoted to many t)ther projects that were equally significant. An eventful part of Hubbard " s year was the trip to Eastern Europe w ith 1 1 student delegates. An inter- national program was established allowing student exchanges between Northwest and Eastern Euro- pean schools. Hubbard said that working with these delegates and students on other occasions was a highlight of his job throughout the year. " I enjoyed opportunities to really work w ith stu- dents on different things. " he said. " I got the most pleasure from that, there was no question about it. I w as really able to interact w ith them and watch them and that was what made the whole business worthwhile. " Thrt)ugh the various changes and programs Hubbaid led. Northwest seemed to be climbing to the top of higher education. According to Hubbard, the hard work and dedication would eventually place the University in a top ranking situation. " 1 thought in a few years we would rank top in the nation among this type of institution. " Hubbard said. " I really believed that we could see the goal posts for being recognized as providing the best quality undergraduate education in the country. This was the first year I could be bold enough to say that, but I could see that happening. " " Implementing programs, addressing problems and making changes were just a few of Hubbard " s responsibilities. As president, his job went beyond desk and office work. He ventured to other countries and enhanced the University as a whole to bring expertise and exclusiv eness home to Nonhwest. ' Written by Karissa Boney President Dean Hlbbard 149 Eliminating programs to cover costs helps B Balandbgthe Budget alancing the budget was on the minds of the president and his cabinet. On ail levels, budgets had an impact on pro- grams that would be cut and those that would be supported. The w ord budaet made some cringe but " The state legislature provided bond obligations such as the high-rises that were still being paid for. We would also have new obligations when we started renovation on Lamkin and Roberta. " " When the Fees Committee recom- the year did not pass without a raise in funds, however mended the tuition, they looked at the tuition as many asked where the money ' " ■ ■ ■■ " would be spent. Some students had nega- tive things to say about the raise, while others saw the raise in a positive light. " I thought that tuition could be in- creased, because the school needed im- provement in its structural appearance, " ' Katie Vergo said. " Tuition was ex- tremely reasonable at Northwest com- pared to most colleges in the United States that offered quality educations. " " Both the departments of Technology and Library Science were eliminated. The University proposed $440,000 would be saved from cuttmg these two areas. An issue that many questioned involved the planned renovations on Lamkin Gym and Roberta Hall. Another addition to Northwest included the Petra Pelletizing Retro Fit Plant. The plant w hich planned to be involved in the recycling process, began to be built during the winter a t an estimated cost of $1.3 million. " The plant would burn paper pellets and the recy- cling WKuld produce steam that we could use to both heat and cool. " " Warren Gose said. As many knew, the budget, which ran from the fiscal year of July I to June 30, was set by the administration. " There were a lot of fixed costs and the major costs in any business were utilities and salaries. " ' Richard Detmer, Faculty Senate member and Chairperson of Budget Planning Development said. " We also had it was a small amount and the amount declined through the years, " Richard Detmer said. fixed obligations. Because there were certain costs that had to come out of the fixed spending, the committee had to balance the expense of those with tuition. Another important factor that impacted the budget was the state legislature. " The state legislature provided some funds, however it w as a small amoiuit and the amount declined through the years, " ' Detmer said. " This was the hardest factor to predict and we did not know the exact amount we would get until spring. " Many students did not understand why certain costs had to come from their tuition. How- ever, because the Lamkin Gym project was consid- ered recreational, state funds could not be applied. Other projects that had to be funded by the Univer- sity were residence halls and parking lots. Estimated costs for the Lamkin Gym project were $5.5 million and Riiberta ' s renovations. $3.1 million. The underlying factor in deciding how much the tuition would be raised and w hat programs would be eliminated, was how much could be cut while pro- jecting a university with high quality. The budget at Northwest was slightly parallel to that of the national budget. Howev er Northwest was committed to the idea of not allowing costs to exceed what had been budgeted. The issue was how to provide the best quality education to current students and still attract potential students, while providing the type of quality programs that had become synomous with Northwest. - ' M, Vf ritten by Jennifer Krai Library science niii- jors Charles Christo- pher, Gina Gubser and Brenda Mikels scan the MARC computerized card catalog for Horace Mann Elementary School.

The_ were the members of the president ' s cabinet and although many knew who the_ were, for most student ' s, the detailsof their jobs ere not as widely known. For i irectorol Development Alumni. Chuck Vealch. the main focus of his job could be summed up in one word- tundraising. Veatch ' s main responsibil- il v as to oversee fundraising programs. Recently he had been looking at the feasibility of a major campaign to in- crease the amount of money raised. Four fundraising consultant groups were as- sessing the fundraising program to deter- mine vv here Northwest was at in terms of its annual giv ing and to define what mea- sures should be taken ne.xt. Veatch was reviewing the proposals to determine which plan would work best. Although Veatch ' s job did not involve much student contact, indirectly it had a treiriendous effect on students. " " We did not have a giving program with students, hut they were the beneficiaries of what we did because the funds raised provided stability for scholarships, " Veatch said. While Veatch did mostly behind-the-scenes work. Dean of Students Dr. Denise Ottinger was constantly dealing with the student body. She de- scribed herself as being an advocate for students and said she tried to stress that she was not just the person students were sent to when they got into trouble. She encouraged students to stop in and talk about what was going on. • " 1 thouiiht that the word had gotten out that my " thought the word had gotten out that my ojftce was a free, open place for students to stop in, " Dr. Denise Ottinger said. office was a free, open place for students to stop in, " Ottinger said. Ottinger said she tried to be extrem ely visible on campus and attend many events and meetings. She was the Student Senate adviser and the co-sponsor of Or- der of Omega. She also worked closely with CARE and RIGHTS and was estab- lishing a chapter of Mortarboard, Inc. Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Robert Culbertson also worked for the benefit of the students. " " Virtually anything and everything that occurred in the instructional envi- ronment was ultimately my responsibil- ity and as the vice president for academic affairs, the president and the board held me accountable, " Culbertson said. Due to the major amount of time his job required, Culbertson adopted several time-saving habits. For example, much of his com- munication with faculty and other University offi- cials was done through the E mail system. Accord- ing to Culbertson this saved him and those he con- tacted from wasting time by playing phone tag. Warren Gose, vice president of finance, also found that he had many tasks to juggle. As the chief financial officer for the University, many depart- ments, reported to him and he laughingly admitted that the rnost challenging thing about his job was making sure the University came out in the black. As part of his job Gose was also responsible for everything that was involved in contracting compa- nies to dojobs, such as renovating Lamkin Gym and Roberta Hall. However, for Gose, the job did not end there. ■ " Having these areas we did everything from get- ting it started to finishing it, hopefully, " Gose said. -continued ' Written by Allison Edwards Cabinet 153 «st I Business -continued " After we did tiiat we had to maintain it and keep it clean. " " Gose " s job also gave him the chance to work with students. All of the areas he was responsible for employed students and three students worked in his office. Vice President Director of Applied Research, Dr. Robert Bush, also worked with students. Six students were em- ployed in Bush " s office doing everylhing from graphics, dictation and computer work to handling the database for an international symposium. " They were all a part of our learn, " ' Bush said. " They were treated in the expectations of a team member. We only made the distinction that they were a student when we paid them because they were on the student payroll. But as far as their commitment and responsibility, for the hours they were here they were a full-Hedged member. " ' Bush ' s position entailed both the Center for Ap- plied Research and the Quality Productivity Insti- tute, which involved bringing on-campus talent to- gether with off-campus talent to explore new ideas such as curriculum, applied research projects and new industry. Bush was also involved with the Eastern Europe exchange program which provided internships in European countries. He also worked with the gradu- ate center in St. Joseph. Bob Henry was also involved in many areas. As the Public Relations Officer it was his responsibility to promote and market the University. " We made every effort to put the best foot of the University forward and to interpret that best foot to the public so that they would understand our mis- " We made every effort to put the best foot of the University forward and to interpret that best foot to the public, " Bob Henry said. sion, our goals, our needs and our accom- plishments, " Henry said. Henry fulfilled those needs in a wide variety of ways. Press releases, photog- raphy and sports inf ormation were some of the ways that he helped promote the University to the public. One project that was in the works was a new promotions package that consisted of TV and print ads and video cassettes that would ht)pe- fully attract more students to Northwest. A wide variety of people were involved in the creation of the package, including students who helped brainstorm for slo- gan ideas. As the Executive Assistant to the President, it was Annelle Weymuth ' sjob to assist President Dean Hubbard with anything that needed to be done. In some cases she even substituted for Hubbard. " So many times he (Hubbard) needed to be in two places at the same time, so my job was to go when he ciiuldn ' t go and assist him in anyway to make sure that we covered as many of our custom- ers as we piissibly could, " Weymulh said. Besides helping the president, Weymuth was also the Equal Employment Opportunity Officer, as well as the American Disability Act coordinator for the University. Weymuth said both tasks took a great deal of time because the University was very con- cerned about baiTier accessibility for the handi- capped on campus and also fairness, as far as dis- crimination was concerned. Weymuth said she loved her job because it was never dull and there was always something new. All the members of the president ' s cabinet agreed that they enjoyed their jobs as well as working with others to ensure that students had the best experience possible at Northwest.

Cabinet 155 Faculty finds fid-ll-titne commitment as University Deans A IthoLigh being the dean of a college required a tull-time commitment, many deans said that they took the job solely for the satisfaction of helping people achieve their goals. College of Business, Government and Computer Science Dean, Dr. Ron De Young, spent time at national meetings and conferences making contacts for re- cruiting faculty members. De Young got a great deal of satisfac- tion from watching new faculty members grow and achieve their goals. " I did not think of it as being a job because I got up in the morning and had fun everyday , " ■ De Young said. De Young served on a bank board in town. was active in the Greater Mary ville Chamber of Commerce and the Nod- away County Economic Development Corporation and still found time to be chair of the Marketing Committee of the National Accrediting Association for Collegiate Business Schools and Programs. Dr. Gerald Brown, dean of the College of Agricul- ture and Science, enjoyed teaching a senior seminar. ■ ' Teaching kept me up with the students and the students helped to keep me up with the industry, " Brown said. Brov n fmind when he did not teach it was hard to keep up with the agriculture industry. When he taught the seminar he read about new inno ' ations and changes, plus read students " research. Robert Sunkel, dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, also taught an upper level course and a freshman introductory course. " By teaching I could better understand the faculty and their problems and situations were clear to me, " Sunkel said. " did not think of it as being a job because I got tip in the had fun everyday, " Dr. Ron De Young said. Sunkel also served as curator of the Olive DeLuce Art Collection on campus and like the other deans, acted as a liaison with the vice president ' s office. The Missouri Department of Elemen- tary and Secondary Education ' s various self-study programs were a pet project of Sunkel ' s. Dr. Frances Shipley, dean of Graduate morning and studies, found teaching was a key link to students and their needs. As dean she worked to express the concerns of the University to the students and faculty she tried to provide an oversight for all graduate studies and assist students whenever needed. Aside from teaching Shipley served as chair of the Department of Human Envi- ronmental Services and the research .sec- tion of the Missouri Home Economics Association executive board. College of Education Dean, Dr. Joseph Ryan, said within the past few years he had been working with people around the state to update teacher education standards. Aside from his duties as dean, Ryan taught and served as President of the Missouri Asso- ciation of Colleges for Teacher Education. Ryan thought that by working with the association he gained a better insight into what other schools were offering and their goals. Ryan thought that people outside of the profession did not have as much insight about the future of teaching and that most of the people w ho ad ised teacher education requirements were businessmen and other professionals, not teachers. Whether each dean was working with faculty, teaching, acting as a liaison between students and the University, or helping to impro e their respec- tive programs, each one made a difference.

It was the week that brought the famil- iar feeling of doom to all college students w hen they were locked up in their rooms with pretzels, leftover pizza, sodas, and chocolate to keep their energy going. Energy was craved when students saw the sun going down and to their dismay, it seemed that five minutes later it was coming right back up, reminding them how fast time went by when cramming for tests. The " week " college students learned to dread was finals week. The preparation taken for finals week was sometimes greater than the prepara- tion for the finals themselves. Creative signs covered doors: " Ifyou knock, you die. Osmo- sis taking place within the room. Please do not disturb the transfer of information. " The Deli and Den suddenly needed to stock up on all the candy bars and caffeine students bought to keep them- selves awake. Rooms became ha ' ens for studying only and during the one loud hour allowed by the residence halls, hard rock music could be heard among all the screams students learned to describe as stress-relievers that had to be done. Some people stocked up on certain foods they chose to eat which would bring them mysterious luck. Others swore by the old, dingy sweatshirt they were sure held so much luck. Heather Houseworth swore by a Kansas City Chiefs sweatshirt. This sweatshirt held the luck she needed for her harder tests. " I wore that sweatshirt on the days that I had hard " The week before I got as much sleep as I possibly could, then spent at least one night on the weekend before trashed, " Darrin Parker said. color! u tests, " Houseworth said. " 1 always did well on those tests when 1 uore my Chiefs shirt. " Although clothing was considered a good luck charm when it came to tests, food and caffeine consumption also be- came prevalent during finals week. Tracy Dickman drank Mountain Dew only during finals. Prior to finals, she rarely drank pop. but the caffeine helped her study. " I drank Mountain Dew to the extent on finals week, " Dickman said. " The caffeine kept me awake and helped keep my attention span going. " Due to all the stress students were under during finals, strange behaviors went unnoticed. It was an understanding between college students that a stress reliever might consist of strange eating habits, odd clothing or irregular sleeping habits. Some students felt the need to start acting strange even before finals week began. Darrin Parker pre- pared for finals the week and weekend before. " The week before I got as much sleep as I possibly could, " Parker said. " At least one night on the weekend before, I spent trashed. I drank most of the weekend. " Parker also claimed the only music he listened to during finals was classical. He claimed it was not only soothing on his nerves, but actually helped him study better. Finals held a trance over students and led some students to acquire odd behaviors during the long, seemingly-never ending week. Whether these hab- its were good or bad, students who participated in them thought they were definite good luck charms and each year behavior could only become stranger, yet still accepted.

The final reward. After years of doing nail-biting presentations prepared the night before, having Moun- tain Dew-and-Diet Coke-cram-sessions during finals week in an effort to secure that last class requirement, and writing 30-page term papers, the light shone brightly at the end of the tunnel. Every- thing was in place except for one detail, the graduates. For some members of the class of 1992 and their families, the spring cer- emony commemorating the end of their college careers may have been somewhat ofasurprise. Shortly after receiving their diplomas many graduates simply left the ceremony. " I was shocked to see that after stu- dents came back they began to congre- gate in the aisles, " Dr. Richard Frucht said. " Not only that they would congregate, but they began to get up and leave. Other parents, friends and kids who had come to see a mother or father gradu- ate, were sitting in the audience waiting to see them go up and their views were blocked by people standing and leaving. " Some of the graduates, however, felt their actions were justified. " My folks had driven five hours and had to make the return trip the same day. They didn ' t want to sit through 800 peoples " names, " Dave Naugle said. " They wanted to spend some time together as a family before they left again. " Though that factor may have been prevalent for a number of students and families, other components came into play. " Lots of people I talked to said their parents forced them to go to the ceremony in the first place, " Jim Sprick said. " Many just wanted to get it over 1 was shocked to see that students began to congregatey Dr. Richard Frucht said. with and get on with the day, what they had said was " their " day. " Clearly the reaction by the students sparked bewilderment among the fac- ulty. " It was a complete lack of respect for one ' s collegues, one ' s classmates, " Frucht said. Perhaps the most confusing thing con- cerning the ceremony, was the effect it may have had on future graduates. " I ' m sure the administration will try to make sure it doesn ' t happen again, " Sprick said. " It created a domino effect, everyone around me left. " However, when dealing with some- thing as large and on such a grand-scale public forum as commencement, there was a limited amount of preparation the school could do. Of course not everything about the ceremony was negative. There did still remain that feeling of over- whelming accomplishment, a feeling of euphoric freedom at having finally finished something that took years to ascertain. " It was the strangest day of my entire life, " Jenifer Mieller said. " I was happy to have finished, but at the same time I was frightened about moving across the country from my family and friends. You have to go where the jobs are though, and my best choice was in Texas. " The ceremony ' s guest speaker, Leonard M. Brooke, a C.F. A. and 1 954 graduate of Northwest, reiterated those feelings with a tale of his earliest beginnings in the financial world. Though the graduation ceremony for the class of 1992 was different from that of any other that had been held, the fact remained that it was an occasion rich in some traditions, while diverse in others. ' Written by Lisa Renze Graduation 161 EASIER SAID THAN DONE No one ever said that having a winning season was easy, but the Bearcats and Bearkittens found that it could be done. The Softball team had its first .500 season in four years. Proving that Northwest could compete with the biggest and the best, the women ' s tennis team finished their season ranked in the top 25 nationally, while the women ' s volleyball team gave Coach Sara Pelster her 200th career win. Although the football team enjoyed spend- ing most of the season playing at home, espe- cially beating rival Missouri Western 43-26, the ' Cats faced controversy as two players were charged with a Class C felony of stealing by deceit and were suspended for the remain- der of the season.

Expectations Fall Short Team responds to adverse situations The word winning became synonymous with the Bearcat baseball team. A winning season was simply something fans and op- ponents expected from the team. So when the ' Cats ended at 18-22 overall, many deemed the season a s somewhat of a disap- pointment. However, the season could not be rated by the record only. " In terms of our win-loss record, we did not come anywhere close to having the kind of season our fans grew accustomed to seeing from us, " Coach Jim Johnson said. " But it was unfair to the players to judge the season solely by the record. Other things had to be considered, such as our average margin of defeat and how the guys re- sponded to adverse situations. " The coaching staff and several players agreed that many of the season highlights came during conference play and the con- ference post-season tournament. One of these highlights was a three-game sweep against North Division opponent, Washburn, which came at a most crucial time during the season. " We were desperately in need of a vic- tory as we had dropped six out of our previous nine games, " Rob Lamke said. " We were at a point where we really needed BRAD JENKINS to turn things around in the right direction, and we came through. " On the strength of their second place finish in the North Division, the Bearcats earned a spot in the MIAA post season tournament. The team won in the first round 4-2 to Missouri Southern. However, any hopes that the " Cats had of making the NCAA regionals were dashed when they lost their final two MIAA tournament games to the University of Missouri St. Louis 6-5 and to Missouri Southern 14-4. " Considering all the adversity that we faced during the season, just to reach the conference post season tournament was quite an accomplishment in itself, " Lamke said. " Then to be able to defeat Missouri Southern in a game where hardly anyone gave us a shot at winning was a great accomplishment. " After the completion of the MIAA post season tournament, two Bearcats were among those selected for conference teams. Robert J. Mac Arthur was chosen as a first team pitcher, while Curtis Landherr was picked as an outfielder for the second team. Both players were also named to the All-North Division team at their respective positions. Left fielder Curtis Landherr takes a swing dur- ing a three- game series against Washburn.

' Kittens Score Winning Season Leadership helps team attain .500 WRITTEN BY BILL H A C K E T T A new season brought a change in atti- tude and team unity. Change was w hat the Bearkitten softball team was ail about as they finished the season with a record of 1 5- 1 5. putting them at .500 for the first time in four years. " We had a much better attitude and better leadership than in years past, " Coach Gayla Eci hoff said. " We became more competi- tive over the fall and we had a more positive leadership committee which everyone con- tributed to. " The " Kittens batted .289 and the pitch- ing staff kept a 2.41 earned run average over the course of the year. According to Sandy Schiager, each player had confi- dence in her own ability which rubbed off on the others. " Anytime somebody went up to bat or went out on the field we all had confidence in them to get the job done. " Despite the ' Kittens hard work they were unable to make the MIAA conference tour- nament. They were beaten by Northeast Missouri State 7-6 in a playoff game to decide which team would advance to the tournament. The ' Kittens turned up the competitive edge during tournament play as they fin- ished second in the Missouri Southern Invi- tational and second in the Northwest Invi- tational, giving them a 9-3 tournament record. To achieve their second-place finish in the Missouri Southern Invitational the " Kit- tens won four of their six games in the tournament. " We played really well in the Missouri Southern tournament as we got into the championship game and then we continued to play well during the championship, " Eckhoff said. The ' Kittens finished the season splitting a doubleheader against Dana College. The team won the first game 3-0 and fell to Dana in the next game 3-2. " It was hard forme because it was the last game of my college career, " Lori Littleton said. " You always wanted to win the last game of the season. " Rain and snow kept the team from play- ing nine of the scheduled games. Accord- ing to Eckhoff this could have meant the fourth seed in the conference tournament. Overall the ' Kittens proved that team unity, hard work and the right attitude did pay off as they finished with their best season since 1987.

Track Teams Make Strides ' Cats, ' Kittens place high in standings WRITTEN BY In indoor competition the Bearcat track team was considered the champs, but dur- ing the outdoor season the ' Cats fell two steps behind and placed third at the outdoor conference championship. Winning the indoor conference seemed fitting for the " Cats as they opened the season with a victory at the Central Mis- souri State University Invitational. " When we came in during the fall and started working out we had a really great feeling about the personnel we had, " Coach Richard Alsup said. " They were excited about it and their goals for the year were to challenge for the indoor and outdoor title. " One of the brightest spots for the " Cats during the conference championship was when Terry Kam provisionally qualified for the NCAA Division II Indoor Nation- als. To provisionally qualify, Kam cap- tured first in the high jump and second in the long jump. During the indoor conference the two- mile relay team of Eric Green, Wagner, Mark Roberts and Matt Elick finished first. Green also enjoyed the spotlight as he claimed first place in the 1,000-meter run and Sealy was victorious in the mile. " We fought hard, but we had people go BILL HACKETT AND SARA HOSFORD down before the conference weekend, " Alsup said. " I was still proud of the kids and I was happy with the type of year we had. " With only six upperclassmen a young women ' s track team approached the season with anticipation and a lot of hope. What the team lacked in experience they made up for in enthusiasm. " There were quite a few freshmen and a couple of walk-ons, " Sue Pennington said. " I thought having the new people just kind of gave new life to the team. " The freshmen performed and timed well, and some had personal bests. Tanya Drake was a provisional qualifier in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 8.50. Although Drake missed the chance to go to Nationals, Diane Cummings provision- ally qualified in the high jump, 5-3 3 4 and Jennifer Holdiman in the shot put, 35-5 I 4. Since the " Kittens were a young team, most did not expect much from them. How- ever, a lot of people were surprised by the team ' s performance. " I thought as a team we did better than we expected. " Drake said. " We placed higher than the teams in the past had placed and we scored a lot of points. I thought we did better since we had a lot of freshmen.

Unity Provides Key Wins Young team finishes season strong WRITTEN BY While most people felt tennis was an individual sport, the Bearcat tennis team proved that cheering on their teammates on and off the court changed the meaning of teamwork. " A lot of the guys were really good friends, " Mark Ardizzone said. " It was a lot easier to play a match when you knew your teammates were pulling for you. " With only three returnees a young men " s tennis team finished the season with a record of 14-6, finishing fifth in the Mid- west region and fourth in the conference. The team ' s toughest competitor during the season was Southwest Baptist, who was going for a fifth straight MIA A champion- ship and was ranked eighth by the NCAA Division II poll. A 7-2 loss against Southwest during the Conference tournament, proved what tough competitors Southwest Baptist were. One of the team ' s wins during the South- west meet came from doubles team Todd Shane and Vesa Liikanen 6-3, 6-2. The No. I singles player, Mike Shane, also won against Southwest by an injury default. " We played Southwest Baptist 7-2, which is not bad for a team of their level, " Coach Mark Rosewell said. " Although that FAY DAHLQUIST was a loss, I thought we played very well. " After beginning the season with a record of 1-3 ,a6-3 win against Division I school, the University of Missouri, marked the team ' s first big win. " It wasn ' t often a team like us beat a Big Eight team, " Ardizzone said. " It was really fun to win against a team you always heard about. " While at conference, in Bolivar, the Bearcat ' s defeated Denver University 6-3. The win against Denverbrought the team ' s record to 8-5. Rain kept the team inside during the home match against Bethany College. The Bearcat ' s won 6-1, which marked the team ' s fourth straight win during a dual match. " It lowered the concentration because we had to wait all day and night to play matches inside Lamkin Gym, " Vesa Liikanen said. " I didn ' t like playing inside Lamkin, be- cause the lights were bad and there were too many lines so you couldn ' t tell if the ball was in or out. " Although the team was young, their 14- 6 record proved that with togetherness and teamwork they could come up with some big wins.

Women Break School Record Unity helps team win IVIIAA WRITTEN BY The " Kittens let their talents shine through as they surpassed the school ' s sea- son record and sent a player to Nationals. " We had a lot of team unity, " Julie Caputo said. " It [the season] was a success. It showed how the program had gotten better the last few years. " One of the Kitten ' s biggest accomplish- ments was winning the MIAA Conference and beating their rivals, Washburn, 5-4. After missing a season due to an injury, Julie Callahan had a personal season record of 23-5 and received a bid to compete in her second NCAA Division II singles competi- tion. Callahan felt her success was due to the team ' s support. " They were all very supportive, " Callahan said. " I was so proud of them. I ' m glad we did as well as we did. " In order to compete at Nationals, a player had to be in the top 32 across the nation. Callahan ' s trip to Nationals was held in Amarillo, Texas where she lost in the first round to the No. 1 seed in the nation. As a team they all worked together to surpass the school ' s season record .set in 1 987. The team had many big wins, includ- ing the win against Western Illinois Uni- KATHY HIGDON AND FAY DAHLQUIST versity 6-3, which marked the seventh win of the season. This tiiarked theirfourth win over an NCAA Division I squad. Caputo said that the ' Kittens played well against Western Illinois and the win was a turning point for the team. The ' Kittens supported each other on the court by working to keep the entire team confident. " If someone was down, we all got to- gether and tried to make her a lot more confident, " D ' Ann Kirkpatrick said. " When we were playing a game and some- one wasn ' t playing as well as they could and were feeling down, we all gathered around and tried to get her pumped back up. " The team finished the Midwest Region competition in Colorado Springs, Colo., with a 1-2 record. During the competition the team beat Mankato State 5-0 and tied their season record for most wins, 15, with the 1987 season record. The team then lost to the University of Denver 6-3 and St. Cloud State University 5-3. Continuing to play with enthusiasm, the team finished the season with a record of 20-5 and was ranked in the top 25 nation- ally.

Stalling the Competition Rodeo team off and running MONICA K R U E L WRITTEN BY Northwest had many sports teams on its campus, but one of its best-kept secrets was the rodeo team. One of the reasons for this was the fact that the rodeo team had been in existence less than three years. Plans for the team began in 1989 when students and adviser, Dave Sherry, wrote and presented a proposal. Once President Dean Hubbard agreed to the proposal, the team was off and running. According to Ashlee Frazier, the rodeo team was one of the main reasons she came to Northwest. Not many other state col- leges sponsored a rodeo team. One obstacle team members had to over- come was the money factor. Costs per per- son could run up to .$4,000 a year. Each member had to provide their own horse, transportation to competitions, a stall for their horse, a National Intercollegiate Ro- deo Association card and traveling ex- penses. " We hoped to get money from the com- petitions, " Frazier said. " They served as incentives. " A rodeo club was established to help raise money through fundraisers. Even with the club ' s help, the majority of the money had to be raised by the participants. " One thing that was totally different from us and other sports was that we were entirely self-supporting, " Sherry said. Unlike other sports, practice concen- trated on building up the mind as well as the physique. Sherry did this by helping the members develop a mind set about their event and ability. He offered support as well as had them repeat verbally what they did right on a good rtm. He also had them mentally picture what their run would be like before they executed it. " You gotta have mind and body to- gether. " Frazier said. " If you didn ' t, work- ing the event was all the harder. " The team competed in 1 different com- petitions around the mid-west. At these competitions, they competed in eight dif- ferent events: saddle bronc, bull riding, steer wrestling, calf roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, goat tying and team roping. Even though the team had little publicity in the past, it was still strong. Each member of the team worked hard to do their best in competitions, not only for personal satis- faction, but to prove that the team was to be reckoned with.

Successful Agreement steppers strive for perfection SARA MEYERS WRITTEN BY When the rest of the campus got a break for the summer, the Bearcat Steppers kept on practicing and exercising for the upcom- ing season. After tryouts. Steppers signed a contract agreeing to stay in shape over the summer. If they did not do so, then they could be dropped from the squad. Keeping physically fit was one aspect that the squad worked on most. Hard work, dedication and determination was what it took for this team to be the winners they were. The squad practiced every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and on an occasional Tuesday or Thursday when it was needed. " We stretched out for 1 3 or 20 minutes, then we got in a kick line for a series of kicks, " Loree Sheldon said. " We practiced jumps and basically any kind of endurance exercise. We were also required to buy a membership to a weight room. " With all the lime the Steppers spent exer- cising and practicing, finding the right mo- tivation could have been difficult for the squad, however, the love of dance and working with others who shared common interests kept the team motivated. Every weekend in July was spent pre- paring for the National Cheerleading Asso- ciation Collegiate Dance camp that was held in August. At this camp the Steppers received many honors and awards, includ- ing several individual ribbons. The team also received a bid to national competition in Dallas. The Steppers did not have a choreogra- pher or a coach so every performance was the creation of their own ideas. The team worked hard as a group, although the team captains put in extra effort. " Shearon Otto and I spent at least an hour every night just making up new routines and getting things organized, " Amy Tomlinson said. Being a Stepper became a way of life for everyone on the team and almost every- thing they did went into the appearance they were to project. Just like any organiza- tion, the reputation of this group was im- portant to uphold. " I could see a difference in myself, even though it was only my first year, " Cheryl Stalone said. " Everytime 1 ate, I thought about fitting into those short skirts. Every- thing I did was for the Steppers. " All of the Steppers worked hard to stay in shape and perfect their routines. The Step- pers could not just say they would work; they had to do it. Steppers 177 The Bearcat defense tackles a M a n k a t o State player. The ' Cats lost to the Mavericks with a score of 27-13.

Perseverance Key to Season Northwest records broken KIM TODD WRITTEN BY The Bearcat football team was a icam that had fought a good fight and despite w hat seemed to be a losing season, emerged with heads held high. The " Cats ended the season with a record of 6-5 (6-3 in MIAA play), which tied them for third place with Central Missouri State and Emporia State. " Our conference was rough, " linebacker Bryce Stephens said. " We played against some tough teams like Pittsburg State, but I thought despite the problems we had in the season we did a good job. " The " Cats began the season 0-2 sur- rounded with controversy that tarnished team unit . Weak linebacker. Stacey Ford and free safety, Antonio Sparrow were sus- pended for passing a stolen money order at the local Hy- Vee grocery store. The money order was connected ith the Los Angeles r iots. " The media made it sound like they were involved in some kind of big crime ring and that was not true at all. " Coach Bud Elliot said. " It was their first time in trouble, there was only one check invoK ed and the used it when they got into trouble financially. Don ' t get me wrong. I am not excusing them. What they did was definitely wrong and they had to live w ith that nnslake and its consequences. Because it was wrong they had their playing privileges on the ball team suspended. That was the right and proper thing to do. However. I was not going to give up on them, they were both redeem- able people and they were both pretty good kids. " Elliot said the players " suspension did hinder the ' Cat ' s success on the field to some degree. " I thought overall, we handled the situa- tion pretty well on our end and took care of it, " " Elliot said. " But we did play without two good football players and that did af- fect our defensive performance a little bit. " " It was, indeed, a rocky start for the Bearcats as the season kicked off with se- nior letterman. but first-year quarterback. Joseph Johnson in control of the offense. With wins over Washburn and Rolla the " Cats evened up the season 2-2 but. dropped to 2-5 after losses to nationally ranked Pittsburg State, Central Missouri State and Northeast Missouri State. One key improvement for the " Cats came as Johnson " s experience grew.

Stephens believed the problems experi- enced at the stall did not help to get the season off on a good note. " At the beginning, team morale was not really good, " Stephens said. " But we even- tually worked through it and came together as a winning team. " Part of the problem had to do with lack- luster fan support. " Our conference was a hard one, and students did not realize that, so they gave up a little early, " Forney said. " Those that did not stay with us missed out on some good football. " Fans who did not stick with the team, missed the outstanding game against Mis- souri Western. The Griffons had a 1 9-0 first quarter lead, but the " Cats came back to win 43-26. During the game against Boli ar the team broke the school record when the offense ran 529-yards giving them 410.7- yard for the season. Forney said the team came together to work as a whole during the last game of the season. " I thought we had even more improve- ment in that last game than we had previ- ously demonstrated thrt)ughout the whole season, " Forney said. " We moved like a well-oiled machine-in perfect harmony. " Joseph Johnson was named national NCAA Division II Offensive Player of the Week. Johnson was cited for his perfor- mance in Northwest ' s 54-41 win over Emporia State. The total offensive figure, Elliot said, was the best in Northwest history and the second-best in MIAA history. Johnson was tabbed as the third-team All-Ml AA quarterback. Ba.sed on the All- MIAA selections, Elliot said, " Cat running backs Jason Krone and St. Romain were named to the .second offensive unit along with offensive guard Sam Moen. Lance Johnson was named to the All- Mid-America Athletics Association foot- ball team as an offensive tackle. Linebacker Ahmed Mortis and defen- sive backs Percy Coleman and Kenny Stokes, made the second defensive unit. Offensive lineman Chris Henze and de- fensive lineman Clarence Green, were named to the third unit.

" The men also had a young, but talented team. They finished fifth in conference. The " Cats top finishers were Mark Robberts, who finished 15th and Chris Blondin, who finished 22nd. " I thought that the team did just fine, we just had to be a little patient, " Coach Rich- ard Alsup said. " We had a good nucleus of returning runners. Overall. I was really pleased with sotiie of the meets. " The team was very positive about it ' s ability to come together. " We got along really well and under- stood our roles together. " Blondin said. " Once we got our individual roles on the team down, we as a team would have been successful.

Gaining New Confidence ' Kittens come close to doubling wins WR TTEN BY Although the Bearkitten volleyball team ended the season with a 15-27 (3-8 in MIAA play) record, it was a season of learning and adjustments. " We accomplished some major goals, " Coach Sarah Pelster said. The " Kittens started the season with eight returning and nine new players, seven of which were freshmen. " It was a rebuilding year, " Cheri Rathjen said. " It was totally different on the collegiate level and it took some time for transfers and new students to adjust. " With all the injuries that plagued the team, readjusting took a lot of work. In the first week of the season, the team lost a setter to a major injury. Middle hitters Tracie Simmons and Jody Doetker sprained their ankles and two outside hit- ters were also injuried. For two weeks of the season, the " Kit- tens played lineups with only one or two starters on the tloor. " It was tough to re-adjust the lineup, " " Pelster said. " The players we put in their places did a good job, but they did not have the experience the other kids did. " Not only did the injuries add up, but the team had an exceptionally tough schedule. TRACI TODD playing against 10 top-ranked teams. " These were games that made you play hard — the games you learned from, " " Rathjen said. One of those teams was Central Mis- souri State University. The " Kittens faced them three times throughout the season- twice in regular season and once in the MIAA championship tournament. " The toughest team we played against was CMSU, but we played well against them, " ' Mari Daiber said. " They were good competition. " " The " Kittens did find CMSU to be stiff competition. During conference they de- feated Washburn University only to meet CMSU. Although the " Kittens lost, they did not give up easily. They won four games before they were defeated. " We finished fifth in the conference, which considering our youth, was pretty good, " " Pelster said. The " Kittens lost three players to gradu- ation, but the foundation was set. " The base was there, " " Pelster said. " " We built on that. " " While the team almost doubled its vic- tories the players gained confidence and experience.

A Sporting Chance students get involved in intramurals WRITTEN BY While participation coiiliiuied to iiiciease and new esents helped lure students into intramural sports, poor sportsmanship made it a dilTicult ear tor Northwest intramurals. According to Bob Lade. Northwest iiiiramuraK director, a Welcome Back Ex- travaganza was planned to introduce stu- dents to the intramural svstem. " It VI. as just a drop-in type of activity. " Lade said. " We had a lot of different things going on. ..and we Just did a lot of fun activ ities- not really vour regular intramu- ral sports. " Among the activ ities were chipping agoll hall into a children ' s pool, bowling on a racquetball court and a frisbee toss. While there were not manv participants, the event achieved its purpose. " There were a lot of different events and not a tremendous amount of people were there, but the ones who were there had a lot of fun with it. " Bob Houtchens said. " It helped a lot of people realize that the intra- mural program was a lot of fun. " The traditional intramural sports contin- ued to show an increase or held steady in participation. " There had alwavs been a constant im- STEVEN WOOLFOLK provemeni with probably volleyball lead- ing the way in participation for your tradi- tional sports and walleyball had been the fastest growing new sport, " Lade said. While traditional activities continued to show an increase, sportsmanship appeared to be on the decline. " Wc were concerned about two things in intramurals. " Lade said. " Number one was player safety and one A was spoHsman- ship. And sportsmanship this year, to be quite honest, was not very good. " Rob Redman, an intramural basketball participant, said poor sportsmanship oc- curred often in intramural basketball. " I thought in just about every game I played in or watched, someone was fight- ing or mouthing off, " Redman said. Redman said the sportsmanship problem was mostly the result of peers doing the refereeing. " When you had a game between say the Delta Chis and the Phi Sigs and the referee was a Phi Sig. you had a tendency to take offense to some of the calls if you thought it was not fair, " Redman said. The increase in participation proved that students were still interested in competing in sports other than on the varsity level.

' Cats Stride Into Winning After early slump final half is victorious WRITTEN BY The Bearcats had an early-season slump, but a rejuvinated " Cats defense put the team back on the winning track and in the play off hunt by winning their last two of three games. They finished the season v ith a 1 4- 1 2 record. " Basically I didn ' t think it (the skmip) was really purely a matter of confidence. " Orlando Johnson said. " It was more a mat- ter of the guys getting used to playing together. " The " Cats indeed played hard as the sea- son entered its second half. They ended the losing streak when they played Northeast Missouri State University. The victory was the ' Cats second of the season over the Bulldogs and it sent them on a streak that would see them come out victorious in six of their next eight games. " Derrick (Booth) had been a really big player for us, " Johnson said. " To me. he was our best defensive player. He re- bounded, he stuck to his man on defense and a lot of our success had probably been because of him. " The ' Cats biggest victory came when they defeated their rival 83-76 Missouri Western. The game saw the biggest crowd STEVEN WOOLFOLK of the season as over 3.000 fans packed into Lamkin Gym. " With that type of crowd I believed we could beat anyone any time. " Johnson said. " The crowd that night got me fired up. ..and that was the first time I had been that excited playing here. " The last game of the .season the ' Cats faced Lincoln University and the possibil- ity of post season play. Although the team lost against Lincoln 84-79. they made it to the first round of play offs where the " Cats faced Washburn, the No.l team in MIAA standing. Coach Steve Tappmeyer said he felt good about the team ' s 93-62 loss against Washburn. " We played in such a great league. " Tappmeyer said. " We didn ' t go in thinking we couldn ' t beat them. It was good to stack up to conference play. " After an early slump, the ' Cats found their stride in the final half of the season. Besides the home ictory against Missouri Western and the road victory at Warrensburg, the ' Cats ended the season on a high note by appearing in post-season action. 188 Men ' s Basketball Chad Deahl scores Um points during the 131-88 loss against ( tntral ( )klah(in)a.

A Give and Take Attitude Contributions come from on andofftlie bencli WRITTEN BY Inconsistent play haunted the Bearkitten basketball team in the early stages of the season, but experience and a " take-what- they-give-you attitude " propelled (hem into the play off hunt. " 1 thought one thing that really hurt us early in the season was that we would fall behind and then try to catch up with the three-point shot, " Coach Wayne Winstead said. " We worked a lot with trying to get the girls to just take what the defense was giving them. " One contributing factor to the " Kittens early-season mistakes was the level of competition the team was facing. " We played a lot of very, very tough teams especially early in the season. " Winstead said. " The MIAA conference was always tough, but we played against six nationally-ranked teams. " The ' Kittens made it through the early competition led primarily by a group of experienced players, but the freshmen played an important role off the bench. " I felt they did a great job. " Shelly Jermain said. " They pushed us in practice. They adjusted real well to the college level. " In the next seven games there was a 60- STEVEN WOOLFOLK 53 victory over Central Missouri State University. According to Winstead the game was a considerable help to the team ' s turn around. " I thought we may have really come together in that ballgame, " Winstead said. " It helped us a lot with our confidence and we gained a lot of composure. " With a 72-66 win over Lincoln the " Kit- tens ended the season on a high note and made it to the first round of post-conference play. The MIAA final season standing had the team tied for seventh with Southwest Bap- tist. In the first round the ' Kittens were paired off against the No. 2 team on the MIAA standing, Missouri Southern. The teams hunt was over after a close loss to Southern 67-66. " It was a big disappointment. " Shelly Jermain said. " Honestly I thought we did pretty good. The first game we played against Missouri Southern we lost by 20 or 30 points so I felt we improved. " While the ' Kittens suffered through a tough schedule early, they gained compo- sure as the season progressed and once again were in the MIAA conference play offs. 190 Women ' s Basketball women ' s B;iskflb;ill.

Season-Ending Injuries Does not end athletes ' careers KARISSA BONEY WRITTEN BY Years of hard work, determination and endless hours of perfecting physiques — a ll to succeed at a spoil they loved. Suddenly it all came to a halt. While pain ripped through once healthy and strong muscles, these dedicated athletes reali ed nothing was forever. Some were lucky, suffering only tninor set-backs, but others faced the reality of missing tnonths of competition. Amber Smith a Bearkitten volleyball player missed an entire season due to a leg injury. Pressure being placed in the lower leg was cutting off the circulation to her foot, causing numbness. Smith herself did not realize how serious her itijury was until she finally visited a doctor. " I went to have tests done and the doctor advised that I have surgery that day. " Stnith said. Smith ' s doctor said if she had waited any longer she tnay not have been able to walk again. The pain did not end there though, infection set in and Smith was back into the hospital. Her injury placed her on the side- lines, but she was ready for eight weeks of off-season training during the spring. " I had been working really hard at it, " she said. " I had been working on my strength but it still set me back about five months. " Although Kenrick Sealy had not been in surgery he knew the same frustration. Sealy was a long distance runner for cross country and men ' s track with career goals of competing in the 1996 Olympics. Sealy ' s injury began during the cross country season and put a halt to his running in mid-December. His problems began when tissue tore around the shin bone and then pulled muscle tendons in his foot. To Sealy, an Olympic hopeful, this injury could have been a set-back, but he kept a positive attitude. " I did not think 1 would miss a whole lot of tny athletic career, " Sealy said. " I had to learn patience, hope and have courage to believe I would get over the injury. " Sealy also said watching other runners inspired him. " Even though my foot was hurt, just watching the competition gave me the feel- ing that I knew I would be back, " he said. " I felt the emotion and it gave me hope and inspiration. " Although these athletes faced the hard- ship of regaining strength, the very courage and determination that brought them to this point would take them higher. Their posi- tive outlook brought them back to their feet.

The trip " s pur- pose i n - By Jennifer Kial volved the discussion of details concerning a student and faculty cultural exchange program titled Living and Learning. The ex- change was conducted between universities in Poland and Czecho- slovakia. The Living and Learning ex- change was designed to pro ide a mutual benefit in the areas of lan- guage, cultural education and ex- change in a living, learning and teaching environment. The pro- gram, designed to bring European students and faculty to Northwest by the fall of 1993. would allow Northwest students to be involved in the exchange after the comple- tion of two years of a European language. The agreements made between the foreign universities and North- west were called " Resolution of In- tent Toward Educational Coopera- tion and Existence. " These agree- ments pledged that educators would work together in areas of mutual concern. The creative concept involved in the exchange was the issue of tu- ition. Students from Northwest would pay exactly what they would pay to go to Northwest while they studied abroad. The European stu- dents would do the same. North- west would take the money that their students paid and use it to cover the costs of the European students when they came over, just 196 Government as the European universities would " This arrangement removed the financial harriers from both sides. " Hubhard said. " hNery sludenl should, if they v anted to, be able to make this part of their edueatioiuil experience. " While the exchange agreement was the most important item on the agenda, the deleiiaies thouyhi thai it was also imporiaiii to interact on a social le el wiih their new friends. " We expected there to be a dif- ference with each of us ha ing dif- ferent interests and goals. " Jeni Schug. Student Senate president, said. " But when we got over there we found we had the same goals, values and ideas about what we wanted to do in life. " Although the Europeans had a great knowledge about American history, they still wanted to know more. They were anxious to show the visitors around. " They wanted to show us their history and environment, " Schug said. " Many of the Czech students were involved in the revolution and they were very proud that thev had a hand in the help of the fall of communism. " Also, while the students were in Europe, the presidential election took place in the United States. Several delegates and also lliihbard expressed the interest Jeni Schuf . Connie Ma ee.

They added that it was very sig- nilicani as well as an extremely ineiiiorable nimneiit lor them to u iiness. " VNhen il was announced ihal Clinton had won and that there were no troops in the street, army guards called out or riots, they were dumbfounded, " Hubbard said. " They had never seen any- thing like it. Also, a professor said to me, " America is really a model for the world. When the former head of the CIA can lose an elec- tion, you have real democracy. ' That was just astonishing and it was also a real proud moment to be an American. " With the foundation for the ex- change set and ready, the represen- tatives from Northwest headed back from Europe to the United States. However, in their minds, the experiences, opportunities and friendships which they had en- countered remained perfectly clear. " This program helped students become acquainted with a part of the world that was going to be a major focus for the next 25 to 40 years, " Hubbard said. " For our stu- dents to be familiar with, be friends with and learn those cul- tures, they ' ll have tremendous ad- vantages and opportunities. " A continual focus toward the fu- ture remained an important con- cept in all parts of society. At Northwest, the path was con- structed for more exchanges and better opportunities that would benefit everyone in the future, both at home and abroad. Order of Business By Jennifer Krai In the national scope, with the inauguration of a new president and a new governmenl. attention focused on what exactly the new government Wduld do. Such was the case for Northwest ' s Student Senate. Under the leadership of President Jeni Schug. Student Senate played a significant role at North- west. Many more individuals became involved and dedicated to Senate. " Students really started to open their eyes and realize how much there was to offer in student government. " Schug said. " We worked at fight- ing for the student ' s rights and getting more privileges for them. " All students were welcome to attend the Senate meetings and become actively involved in the organization. Many issues and activities kept Student Senate very busy. Activities ranged from a successful retreat which helped in planning, lo a walking tour of the campus in order to indicate which paths needed belter lighting or obstructions moved away. Another important activity was the annual blood drive which was also a success. A large number of Northwest students turned out for the drive. Student Senate dealt w ith extremely controver- sial issues such as the proposed parking lot across from Lamkin Gym. The proposal was to put the new lot on the property where the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity house was. The Student Senate also set on working to get a student vote on the Curriculum Committee and details of the Eastern European trip. Student Senate ' s success could have been cred- ited to leadership and the aspect of putting com- plete quality and attentention in everything that they did. Student Senate served as a leadership organization and tried to fulfill their duty of effectively handling everything they faced. STUDENT SENATE. Front row: J. Schug; S. Claude and J. Stanley.

These decisions ranged from ev- erNthing including where one was going to live and with whom, to time management. This was all up to the individual, it was what he or she made of it. Many students found that to better enhance their colle- giate career, they should be- come involved in one or more of the various aca- demic groups that dealt with or related to one ' s cho- sen field of study. Work in- volved not only attending weekly or monthly meet- ings, but also participating in fundraising events, plan- ning outside activities to get involved in the professional aspects of the organization and allowing for time to re- lax and get better ac- quainted with those that shared the same interests. Through these groups stu- dents learned not only more about various majors, or specific areas of interest, but also reaped life-long benefits from- the contacts and friendships that were developed. Though some groups were easily recog- nizable as fixtures on cam- pus, others were content to be small and family-like in By Tower Staff nature. One group that was synony- mous with Northwest and it ' s love of tradition was the Tower year- book. The Tower was comprised of a staff of approximately 45 members and editors that worked throughout the year capturing the essence of Northwest. By utilizing photography, cre- ative writing stories and graphic design, the members were able to produce a 320-page volume of his- tory. Through long hours and many years of hard work, the Tower soon became known as a standard of ex- cellence by which other student publications throughout the coun- try were measured. Specifically, the Tower was awarded a five-star Ail-American for their 1992 book, " Who Would Have Thought? " The group has consistantly received an Ail-American award each year since the 1984 book, " ' Lookin ' Bet- ter Than Ever. " " It was quite an achievement and we were very proud, " Tower Editor in Chief, Allison Edwards said. " We tried not to focus on the awards factor, but we always wanted to try to make each book better than the last. More impor- tantly, however, we strived to make it a hook the students would want and one that would accurately record the year ' s events. " The All- American was awarded to yearbook publications that had 198 Academic Groups excelled in the areas of judgement ratings which included concept es- sentials, coverage, layout design, writing editing and photograph) . Within the basement of Wells Hall was another award-winning publication. The Northwest Mis- sourian student newspaper. Printed weekly, the Missourian was the up- to-the-minute campus informer covering everything trom local news, campus concerns, sporting events and editorials. Published since the early 1900 " s, The Missou- rian had proven itself essential to Northwest by withstanding the tests of time. " It was somewhat oscrwhelming if you realized w hat we did every week, " Missourian Editor in Chief. Kathy Barnes said. " The awards were certainly a great reward for the time we spent, but that was not why we got into it or why we did it. There was too much time spent to focus on some award. " The Missourian played an impor- tant role for students whose minds were not completely sold on news- paper or journalism life. " It was the biggest test of all when it came to finding out if that was really what I wanted to do as a career, " Production Assistant Der- rick Barker said. " It also tested my ability to work with people. Being able to work with others was a ne- cessity. We were all a family, we all fought, and we all picked on each other, but we all depended on each other in order to put out the best newspaper possible. " A newer publication that had be- gun to grow was the student-pro- duced travel and tourism magazine. Heartland View. Published bi-an- nually . the magazine focused not on campus activities, but rather on tourist offerings in a four-state re- gion surrounding Maryville that in- cluded coverage of Des Moines, Omaha and Kansas City. " The most unique aspect was that our extended region gave us a feel for being on a professional publica- tion, " Editor in Chief, Steve Rhodes said. " We could not rely on the campus population to support us, which made us work a lot harder. " Though print journalism faired well on campus, the broadcasting outlets were not to be overlooked. - continued .ASSOCIATION FOR COMPUTING MA- CHlNtiRY.

Photo by Brad Fairfield. Broadcasting from high atop Weils Hall, campus radio station KDLX-FM provided both informa- tion and entertainment for its stu- dents as well as being named America ' s best col- lege radio station. " " When we won the Marconi Award that cited us as the best college radio station in America. I real- ized what a great experi- ence the whole semester was, " " Brandon Meisner said. ' " 1 learned a lot that could ne er he replaced. " Sharing broadcast facili- ties with KDLX was the campus National Public Radio affiliate, KXCV. Though KXCV operated with a partial-professional staff, most of its talent came from the students. " Usually students spent a semester on KDLX before being considered for KXCV, " " Travis Stuckey said. " ' Certainly that was not its sole purpose, but it did lend itself for that use. " KXCV had the honor of having two of its student staff members chosen as winners of the Missouri Broadcasters Association award for best public radio promotional spot. " It was a great feeling be- By Tower Staff cause it was a professional award, " Chris Hagan said. " " Kath Steiner and 1 were the only two students to win in the whole state. " For students interested in expand- ing their communications experi- ence beyond v ' hat the classroom could give, groups such as RTNDA and PRSSA offered a professional view of where interests could take them. The Northwest chapter of the Ra- dio and Tele ision News Director ' s Association was one of only 30 college chapters in the United States. The group sponsored pack- age and anchoring clinics as well as special production opportunities throughout the year. RTNDA broadcasted the Homecoming Pa- rade and Election results and began a 15-minute weekly newscast in the spring semester. In keeping w ith the student chap- ter of a professional organization on campus, PRSSA, the Public Re- lations Student Society of America was an offshoot of their profes- sional organization PRSA. Estab- lished to enhance student clientele, measure skills and dealings, the chapter e en boasted it ' s own PR mini-firm. Promotion In Motion. " " We did newsletters for places like St. Gregory ' s Church and Stu- dent Senate, " Stephanie Taylor said. " We got some very exciting accounts and I thought the mem- bers would be thrilled to have the 200 Academic Groups chance to work on them. " For persons involved in any orga- nizational outlet of Wells Hall, be it print, broadcast or personal, the im- portance ot keeping in tune with one another was of vital importance v hen planning activities. The members realized the benefits by combining specific specialties into one package. Other groups also ad- hered to that logic bv combining facets of their governing bodies. Within the Agricultural Depart- ment, there were nine separate clubs, though each was governed by the Ag Council. This council was made up of the vice-president and one representative from each group. Members seemed to grasp the importance of their actions more readilv when all other groups could be affected. " You were more responsible; you had to be dedicated, " Jay Engel said. " You were not just working for yourself, you were working for the whole Ag Department. " Students realized this challenge and put forth 100 percent effort w hen w orking on fundraisers or for community projects. Primarily, the group, just like many others, was most concerned with fiscal matters. " Our main goal was to get alumni together at the end of the year for a banquet. " Allen Huhn said. " In or- der to do that, it meant a lot of teamwork. " The Council held fundraisers in an effort to secure enough money for the banquet. Their fundraisers included a chili supper, raffles, dances and boar tests. Elsewhere within the agricultural department, groups were formed that pertained to two or more inter- ests a student had. The Agronomy Club united students with interests in soil management, crop produc- tion and environmental protection. Agronomy Club member Brian Fri.schmeyer said that the most im- portant part of the organization was keeping up to date with changing industries including technological machinery advancements and chemical revolutions. This made for better crop livestock produc- tion and general business tactics that anyone pursuing a rural lifestyle had to become familiar with to succeed. - continued AGRONOMY CLUB From row: Tom wcifcU ticth Baragar) and Chris Pc cslorf.

Academic Groups 201 ACADEMIC GROUPS Experience -continued The club attended both National and Regional Agronomy Confer- ences held in the spring and fall. " At the conference in Minneapo- lis we saw professionals that had created and done research prod- ucts. " Todd Heck said. The club also held a Future Farm- ers of America day for high school FFA chapters from northwest Mis- souri and southwestern Iowa. The day was to inform and further edu- cate FFA members. The main goal the Agronomy Club wished to fulfill was to supplement education in agronomy. It was a sideline to add The KDLX staff ' hosts ci dance on the Tundra and losses Dominoe ' s cups to the crowd. The X-106 crew provided music for various activities throufihout the year. Photo hv Don Carrick. to the regular curriculum of group members. Those who gathered specifically to discuss and to attempt to learn more about farming as a profession for the new century and beyond were those persons involved with the Ag Club. Members worked at gaining more knowledge in the profes- sional career of agriculture. Though education was of utmost importance, twice every year the Ag Club held a barnwarming for old and new members alike. " It was a chance fiir Ag alumni and anyone else interested to get together and party, " Russ Shirley said. A new program was imple- mented into the Ag Club this year. The chapter was sponsored by the Kansas City National Agriculture Marketing Association. NAMA, and each member was given a men- tor. " Mentors were business people from Kansas City who we were matched up with to learn about ag business and business in general, " Jean Flagman said. As farming became a more tech- nological trade, advancing as quickly as that of any other field, computers and their proper utiliza- tion was necessary for future agri- cultural professionals. Many looked to friends involved in the computer science department to get By Tower Staff easy-to-understand instructions. The Computer Managment Sys- tems Society was a professional organization made up of computer management systems majors who had an interest in business or com- puters. CMS sponsored speakers and field trips that enhanced the students in-class work with practi- cal examples that were offered in a way that was non-threatening or overwhelming. " I liked our organization because it was a relaxed environment, " Marcos Garcia said. A second computer-oriented group was the Association for Computing Machinery. ACM was a group that promoted the educa- tion and knowledge of working with computers. " We were a group of mostly computer science majors that met and shared current information on computers, " Tina Eketermanis said. As part of a fundraiser, the group sold computer disks for 75 cents to anyone interested at the beginning of each new school session. The group had both a local and national organization which put out a monthly magazine for members that helped keep students informed of advancements within the profes- sional field. It seemed that in some way nearly everyone relied on comput- ers to complete work thoroughly. 202 Academic Groups aLCiir;itcl and in the shoriest anuiutii ot ilniL ' . This was certainly true tiir those students pursuini; de- grees in the acenuntini; field. Al- though the Accounting Society was thought of by a few members as mainly agood resume builder, most members gained a great deal of practical experience from what w as offered. " It helped me to get to know ac- countants, become familiar with the faculty and it really w as good to pill (in a resume. ' " R an O ' Rourke said. The Aceounling .Sociels mel with different business speakers throughout the year, and tra eled to Des Moines to hear a speaker. " It helped to .see what would be ahead in the future and it also helped decide if this was the field we wanted lo work in. " O ' Rourke said. Another popular business and fi- nancial organization on campus was the Financial Management As- sociation. FMA was established in 1970 to provide interested students with a chance to exchange ideas, goals and learn more about the fi- nancial field. The members of the FMA took advantage of the opportunities which w ere offered to them through membership. The benefits of mem- bership outweighed the time spent in the organi alion. -conllnuetl Brian Rudolph assists Chris Hagan in assem- hlinfi the KXCV Homecoming entry. Their float.

Photo hy Jack Vaitght. interviews and important to working in the business association gave its mem- opportunity to network for future jobs, " Shirley Huffman, vice-president of FMA said. " ' We had a speaker program, where we brought in numerous business representatives to speak on various subjects and this provided FMA members with job pros- pects as did our field trips. " Field trips were a large part ofthe learning experi- ence as FMA traveled to the Kansas City Board of Trade, Federal Reserve Bank and Hallmark Cards Inc., to see an ordinary working day in the busi- ness world. FMA, like other organiza- tions, held fundraisers to pay for these field trips. " We had a book sale in October, as well as a raffle for a Kansas City Chiefs " weekend, " Huffman said. The world of business and marketing was increas- ingly popular with many college students when the computer age took hold and held onto American society. Money played a large role for students who By Tower Staff were deciding what interests, if de- veloped, would produce the largest reward. For some students with an interest in cash and securing profit, the American Marketing Associa- tion was a great group to become a part of. AMA was designed to help stu- dent members understand more about what went on in the business world for marketing corporations and single-operations marketers. Their main source of outside infor- mation came through speakers, covering a wide variety of topics including how to dress for an inter- view to basic information about marketing. To learn more about their field, AMA often attended seminars, which meant they also knew the importance of fundraisers. The group sponsored a best-legs-of- faculty contest in the marketing department. Hands-on experience was a large part of their learning process. Projects such as an ad campaign for a member ' s family business was just one of many projects AMA had throughout the year. Patty Swann thought these projects were what made AMA a good learning experi- ence. " It gave practical experience to apply what I learned in class through projects, " Swann said. " It was also a good way to meet people in my major. " 204 Academic Groups Gelling lo know students through social activities was also important to AMA members. Boulinj;. pi a parties and ice cream socials were just a few of the many fun activities that were planned throughout the year. These social activities did not take away from their professional- ism or business manner according to their national organization as they were given the Efficiency Award for the third consecutive year. The Efficiency Award was given to the chapter w hich met na- tional standards including accurate and updated chapter reports. Though marketing students spent their field trip and off-cam- pus excursions learning the inner workings of business offices or marketing departments, other groups on campus were taking their learning to the great outdoors. Members ot the Geography Cieol- ogy Club were incorporating their book work with practical applica- tion on natural, environmental field trips. The purpose of the club was siMi|iic. to involve the student in extended learning situations that dealt with the composition of the world around us and getting the students to develop a daily conciousness of earth-prolonging activity. The group practiced their beliefs by putting thought to action and becoming invohed in en iron- mental activities such as planting trees for Earth Day. One of the key aspects of Geog- raphy Geology Club was excur- sions where the field trips offered hands-on training oppt)rtunities at outdoor cites in places like south- ern Missouri and Colorado. Again, fundraisers allowed the group to venture away and fulfill the learning by doing theory of edu- cation. A major moneymaker for Geography Geology Club was a three-day book sale consisting pri- marily of geography and geologv books and magazines like National Geographic, donated by the depart- ment and arious instructors. For persons seeking employ- ment in a scientific or medical field, the Pre-Medical Professionals group pro ided exactly what they may have needed. -continued NORTHWEST MISSOU- RIAN FriMil row: S.

Academic Groups 205 ACADEMIC GROUPS Experience -continued Comprised of students in the pur- suit of health and science degrees, members were asi ed to maintain at least a GPA of 2.5. Their goal was to become more aware of the health field and in some cases help stu- dents decide exactly what they were looking for in the future. " It helped me to explore my choices to see what I really wanted to do in this field. " Stacy O ' Sullivan said. Health professional speakers like dentists and doctors were brought to meetings giving students a chance to ask questions and learn about the different professions they might have been interested in. " We had similar interests and this Dressed like gangsters members ofSMS-AHEA make their way down the parade route. SMS-AHEA was one oj few academic groups to participate in the Homecoming panuU Photo hv Jon Britton. By Tower Staff was a way of trying to keep in- formed of new information and share those areas of interests with other members of the group, " Kevin Rhodes said. As in most academic groups Pre- Med Club found the best way to learn was to see actual facilties. By touring hospitals and clinics, the members could see professional examples of numerous elements spoken of throughout their classes. A slave auction, car-wash and raffle tickets for a Chiefs game were just a few of the fundraisers Pre-Med Club sponsored to pay for their trips and other expenses. Pre-Med Club also offered spe- cial insight for internships and scholarships by sharing with people who had similar interests. Not all organizations promoted themselves as extreme heavy aca- demic organizations. Though all groups did have specific purposes and needs, some also accentuated on the positive by interacting so- cially quite often with other mem- bers of their group. One academic group that thought of itself more as a social organiza- tion was the Psychology Sociology Club. They liked to get together to learn more about the other mem- bers of their department and be- come familiar with all those with whom they would be working closely with on classroom projects. " It was very interesting to know 206 Academic Groups that everyone out there was so into the department. " Lydia Irwin said. The group occasional!) invited speakers into their meetings or tra - eled to businesses and industries which related to their field. One trip was taken to Lea enworth Prison in Kansas. The group went to imi the high securitN facilits . but due to a power failure, were only alKn ed into the low-security areas. For any business majors accom- panying the Psych .Soc club to Leavenworth, they may have felt right at home after the group ' s big- gest fundraiser of the sear, the an- nual " Jail and Bail " uhich raised money for the I ' nited Wa and went to support their group. Phi Beta Lambda members par- ticipated in local and stale competi- tions which consisted of taking written tests pertaining lo business skills. Two of their members. .loni Hull and Shavsna Heldenbrand. placed high enough at the state level to ad ance to the national competi- tion in Chicago. Heldenbrand went on to place second in the Adminis- trative Assistant Typist e enl. " It was the college version of the Future Business Leaders of America, " Heldenbrand saiti. A second business organization. Phi Beta Alpha, focused on expos- ing business students to various career opportunities. " We met every other week, " Kim Kiefer said. " We brought in speak- ers and took tours of industries and discussed the future of the business world. " The members thought highly of their organization and saw thtir as- sociation with the group as a good way to network. " Our organization was a good one, based on the fact that it gave those who were graduating a chance to meet with business people in the community, " Kellie Levis said. There were groups formed for the sake of specific community or so- cial concerns. The Student Council for Exceptional Children brought a better understanding of handi- capped children and how to work with them. The organization helped to support the families of the chil- dren who were physically or emo- tionally challenged. -continued I ' RSSA.

SCEC counseled the siblings of these children and offered to help when needed. A club geared toward education and future teachers was Student Missouri State Teachers Associa- tion. SMSTA offered programs to help write resumes and helped aca- demically-at-risk students. " SMSTA provided members with a supportive and professional at- mosphere and with the opportunity to meet others in their profession, " Marylin Schaefer said. " The group also provided a learning experience about the teaching profession in general. " SMSTA insured their student teachers with a policy that covered any school-related injury or lawsuit and provided legal council if neces- sary. SMSTA had 2,600 members statewide and the Northwest chap- ter was the third largest. An organization on campus which was open to any student who was interested in the theater was the University Players. By Tower Staff " It kept me updated with what was going on in the University and it allowed me to have a say in what would happen, " Bill Hayley said. The organization chose which plays would be produced and also determined the budget for the pro- duction. The budget covered such supplies as props, costumes and other materials. Members gave their time to the community. In January they dem- onstrated to local Girl Scouts some interesting points about the theater. " We gave demonstrations in light, make-up and acting, " Kent Andel said. STUDENT COUNCIL FOR EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN. Front row: Jill Sanders; SMSTA.

According to Commander John Bankson. the group was repre- sented in Ranger Challenge, a weekend of events, such as weap- ons assemblies, basic marksman- ship, grenade throwing, a six-mile road march tbllowed by an e ening of raid and ambush maneu ers. ■ ' The Rangers competed in a num- ber of other events throughout the year as well, including winter sur- vival camping, rappeling and spelunkering, " Bankson said. Those persons involved with mind and body fitness were often concerned aboiu the health and physical knowledge of the public around them. The Health and Physical Education Recreational Department (Hl ' liRD) brought to- gether those v, hi) majored in health. physical education or recreation. " Our group was for our major to learn leadership abilities, " ' Kim Landis said. Finally, with the closing of the Technology Department on cam- pus, many students had to bid fare- well to old interests and try to culti- vate new. The Industrial Technology Club was an organization designed for those majoring in industrial or edu- cational technology, but with the disbandment of the technology de- Dnwstcl in Kcnaissciiuc i cniHl i hilhun;. l.U:iihclh lonnsciul.

Members participated in confer- ences and workshops. " Our group was a professional organization for our major to learn professionalism, leadership abili- ties and form contacts with employ- ers, " Landis said. Whether a student felt at home in the chemistry lab or the Macintosh lab. it was a matter of choice for the student as to where and hov much they wanted to be involved. These organizations allowed stu- dents to gain practical experience while still safely tucked inside the safety of aclassrt)om. Without aca- demic organizations, life would have just been school and work. It was w ilh pleasure and anticipation that students joined academic groups.

Academic Groups 209 H O N O R A R WHETHER IT ADDED SPARKLE TO A RESUME, FILLED UP FREE TIME OR RECOGNIZED AN ACHIEVMENT. HONORARIES WERE A Recognized Excellence T A he By Katie Harrison and Sara Meyers . here were some groups on cam- pus who had very strict require- ments for membership. Some wori ed primarily tor the advance- ment of the student and were re- sume builders, but others concen- trated their efforts on philanthro- pies which were adopted by their group. These groups, organized prima- rily as honoraries, often reqired the strict upkeep of grade point aver- ages and class rank standing, espe- cially for incoming freshman class Gaiy Pilgrim.

Although it may have been hard for interested students to become involved initially, with a little hard work and dedication, they were soon welcomed into the ranks. Once membership from the specific group that a student pur- sued was obtained, it became easy to see what a benefit membership could be when dealing with profes- sors in the classroom and members of the community outside of cam- pus. This also lent itself to great ad- vantage when students looked be- yond their career at Northwest and projected themselves 10 years into the future. What they did now to prepare for then was vital and of critical, utmost importance. The or- ganizations focused on profes- sional appearance and achieve- ment after students graduated and would incorporate programs in- volving successful persons in their selected career goals. One group that strived to guide and benefit their members all the way to the " real world " was Kappa Omnicron Nu. They recognized and encouraged excellence in re- search, scholarship and leadership in the field of home economics. " It was a good opportunity, " Leslie Leake, president, said. " I got to meet other people in the depart- ment. " Just by being a member students became a part of a national network 210 Honoraries ot scholars, qualified for scholar- ships, explored career options and developed beneficial leadership skills. For those students who were ma- jorini; in or were just interested in psychology, Psi Chi ottered many benefits. Psi Chi promoted psychology through social contributions, public awareness and analysis of current theories. Development of personal qualities and group leadership skills were also focused on b the group. Gamma Theta I ' psi Ion was a na- tion, il honor sociei tor geogra- phers. I ' he club tried to expand stu- dents ' interests in geographs b en- couraging high-quality student re- search. Professional impro ement and leadership development of agricul- ture education majors w as the focus of Alpha Tau .Alpha. To be ac- knowledged as a full member, a student must ha e been a sopho- more agriculture education major and carried a 2.5 GPA. If a student was of junior standing the only re- quirement was being an agriculture education major. Students who had obtained an " A " in twt) college-le el courses of the same foreign language, with an overall GPA of 2.0 not including the two courses mentioned were eligible for Alpha Mu Gamma. Al- pha Mu Gamma, a national colle- giate foreign language society, was open to all students who met the requirements. All academic organizations did not require students to be in upper level courses. Phi Eta Sigma was available for freshmen who had completed their first semester of courses with a . ' .5 GPA or above. Freshmen could have also qualified after their second semester ol courses. These honorary organizations demanded a lot from students both academically and professionally. When enough effort was devoted to keeping grades and GPAs high, these organizations provided ter- rific resume boosters as well as ac- tivities to prepare students for the " real world " and the job market. Whatever the reason may have been, many students were involved with honoraries.

Honoraries 211 HONOR A R Excellence H By Katie Harrison and Sara Meyers a ing a high grade point av- erage was not all there was to hon- orary groups. There were many groups which became more in- volved in community service and charity foundations. Granted, a higher standing and leadership qualities were still honored, but Santa, played by Gary Pilgrim, a. ' iks a child what he wants for Christinas. The Order of Omega sponsored this and many other community ' projects. Photo by Kclli Chance. these students built a resume of honor while helping the commu- nity and campus. Societies like Pi Omega Pi, the national business teacher education honor society gave their members insight into the business education world. Members had to have com- pleted three semesters of college courses including at least 15 hours in business and or education subjects and have a 3.0 GPA in busi- ness and education courses. The members helped pro- mote their group during the Sneak Preview program. held for high school stu- dents interested in attend- ing Northwest. " We had a booth on the Sneak Preview day, " Joni Hull said. " High school se- niors came to tour the cam- pus and it was our chance to show what honor this good group was. " Cardinal Key was another group which gave recogni- tion to students who showed a degree of excel- lence scholastically and participated in campus pro- grams. Students had to show leadership ability, be at least sophomore status and have at least a 3.0 GPA. Cardinal Key members worked to collect donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Associa- tion. " We were in the process of rais- ing money to send to the national organization which in turn sends it to the Juvenile Diabetes Associa- tion, " Elisabeth Crawford said. " We had collected donations and had conducted presentations in the community to inform about juve- nile diabetes. These programs were also linked to raising money for the association. " Sponsoring campus events was another project taken on by honor- ary groups. The Blue Key National Honor Fraternity, whose members had to be full-time students that were nominated and approved by a two-thirds vote of the active chap- ter, was busier in the spring with campus activities. " The spring semester was busiest for Blue Key, " Byron Willis said. " We sponsored the Tower Queen competition, which took a lot of time. " Honoraries that specialized in a more general area, such as foreign languages, could face a problem when planning activities to include all areas of interest for its members. Alpha Mu Gamma, the national collegiate foreign language honor society ' , had a good turnout when they planned events such as visiting a Spanish art gallery, as well as other trips and activities. " We had a lot of participation, " 212 Honoraries Tina Caplan said. ' " VVhcii v c did something in the Spanish area not just the people tal ing Spanish classes attended, but e er bod went. " Discussions and presentations were another aspect ot honor soci- eties. The international English so- ciety. Sigma Tau Delta, held regu- lar meetings to talk about literature. " During the tall semester we had a round table discussion with Dr. Richiirds atxiul M;irgaret AshuiKxi. " Premala Baiasubramaniam said. " In the spring we planned another round table discussion and a drama presentation w ith Jeffrey Loomis. " Learning from other peoples " ex- periences could be a aluable asset and the students in Gainma Theta Upsilon took every advantage of this during Geography Awareness Week. This week was set as the time when the organization tried to fa- miliarize others with the impor- tance of geography. " We were the organizers of Ge- ography Awareness Week, " Jason Stevens said. " We had speakers come, like Duane Neless. who shared information about .-Xfrica. Another speaker, Diane Krueger. who teaches in the department spoke about caves. That was our main acti it in the fall; for the spring we plaruied a speaker who did research in Saudi Arabia to come and talk with us. " An organization which was more geared for agriculture majors was Alpha Tau Alpha. The organization was designed for agriculture educa- tion majors. The group also pro- moted professional impnnement and leadership development. Alpha Tau Alpha held monthly meetings to plan arious actisilies and events. " We went to tlie Future Farmers of America ctinvention and we do- nated food to needy families throughout the year, " Kris Ehlers said. " During Homecoming, we built house decs and participated m all of the traditional Homecoming activities. " Some honorary organizatujns had fundraisers and also held spe- cial e ents on a regular basis. Delta Tau Alpha required its members to be in the top 35 percent of their class. -continued n n DRLTA TAU ALPHA. Front row: -loc Turner; Sandy Larson; Sue I .irsiMi.

" Initia- tion was after the banquet where we explained what Delta Tau Alpha was all about and what we expected from our members grade-wise and scholastically. " Delta Tau Alpha ' s fundraiser was a raffle. " We had a boot raffle as our money making project, " Francis said. " We went to St. Joe Boot and got a $75 gift certificate and sold tickets, then drew our winner at our December banquet. " Honoraries ' fundraising activities were sometimes accompanied by speakers and seminars. " We ' e had a few speakers come in and talk with us about prepara- tion for graduate school and about new topics in the field of psychol- ogy, " David Phillips, Psi Chi, said. Psi Chi, an honor society for psy- chology students, also incorporated activities into their meetings. " We also had some fun activi- ties, " Phillips said. " We celebrated the 10th anniversary of Psi Chi with cookies and such in the psychology office. " Students involved in the Depart- ment of Human and Environmental Science had their own honor soci- ety. Kappa Omicron Nu. " 1 thought it was a positive group that recognized me for my achieve- ments, " Kim Landis said. Although the group had relatively small numbers, the participation was very good. " Overall, our participation in the group was good, " Leslie Leake said. " It was a small organization, but I thought we accomplished a lot. " Many members thought that Kappa Omicron Nu ' s activities were useful in helping them plan for PHI ETA SIGMA.

National Residence Hall Honorary, NRHH. was a national organization de- signed to recogni c the con- tributions and achieve- ments of leaders vv iihin the residential hall system.

A resume. .Students took great pains to ensure that their resume would somehow make them rise abo e the thi)usands of other recent graduates looking to land that vital first job. This often meant seeking out acti ities that could en- compass their major area of study while promoting acadamia and scholarly pursuit. Despite what prospective em- ployees may ha e told interview- ers, some students did join groups just because they looked great on paper, not because of the activities that occurred within the confines of the organization. One group that was commented on was Phi Eta Sigma, a freshman honor society for students with a . .5 grade point average at the end of the first semester, or . .5 cumula- tive grade point average at the end of the freshmen year. " 1 would consider Phi Eta Sigma a resume builder, " Dave Pavlich, vice-president of Phi Eta Sigma, said. Some groups acknowledged the importance of having an honorary to associate with. They also per- formed simple projects that, al- though not incredibly time con- suming or requiring a great deal of outside planning helped keep the group ' s meetings semi-regular and updated on iinportant information they may ha e needed to know . By keeping activities and group re- quirements at a minimum, students were often more interested in stay- ing involved with the group for more than just resume-building purposes. Most of these organizations were designed to recognize achieve- ments and goals obtained by the students. One such organization was the National Residence Hall Honorary Organization. The NRHH elected 10 to 12 members a year by consideration of their con- tributions and achie enients as leaders within three residence hall complexes. " They took the top one percent of student leaders in the residence halls. " Leigh Gerken said. " In the organization, we voted on best Resident Assistant, resident and program of the month. " Other groups were formed to connect people of excellent grade point and class rank standing and also to help them to further their scholastic and leadership possibili- ties. Delta Tau Alpha was the agri- culture honor fraternity for those who had completed 45 total hours and 12 of those directly with agri- cultural classes. Similarily. Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia worked on that premise by encour- asinii hish standards in all areas of 216 HONORARIES vocal and instrumental music. Phi Mu Alpha Sint ' onia had entenained Northwest residents as the Home- coininsz Variet Show ta orite tor years, until a cut n budgets this year kept the group Irom compet- ing.

" Phi Mu Alpha Sintonia looked excellent on a resume because it was a professional group known nation w ide. " Pat Watts said. i ' he group ' s family-like atmo- sphere leant itself tii a sense of communitN the group could adopt and keep as their own after college. " We built a brotherhood where there was a lot of caring, " Jason Elam said. " We were very close- knit and looked out for each other. I personally took great pride in call- ing myself a .Sinfonian. We fur- thered our love of music and wanted other people to understand the music. " Some groups had trouble build- i ng memberships simply because of the difficulty encountered when introducing a new organization to Northwest. It was not always easy to circulate information about a new group and recruit enough in- terested members to invest the time needed to start an organizations. Order of Omega experienced this problem. " We were fairly new to North- west, " Jenni Schug said. " We were still trying to decide on a philan- thropv and v here to go w iih it from there. " Other societies were formed to acknow ledge the accoinplishments of their members. Sigma Gamma Epsilon, for geology students in higher standing, cooperated in forming an impressive resume for students involved in the group. " We were an honor society, " Brian Zurburchen said. " We had our annual initiation and that was about the extent of it. " While some students Joined these honorary organizations be- cause they were interested in the benefits offered by the group, more often than not, there were other students who were simply in it for the sake of their resumes.

Besides the many things that one thought they would find at a Chris- tian campus house, many of these organizations offered an opportu- nity for students to support each other as they learned to cope with new environments. " Kolaiah provided a peer group for students, " Card Pegues, mem- ber of Kolaiah, said. " We were there to help each other. " Inner Strength By Patricia Maxwell-Schiirkamp Pegues explained that the group helped each other in their daily Christian living by talking to each other about problems they may have been experiencing and finding ways tocontinuetheirChristian liv- ing through the Bible. Pegues said that although Kolaiah was a relatively new Chris- tian organization, they did offer students a chance to get together, to watch movies and to play games. The Fellowship of Christian Ath- letes met every Tuesday night in the Student Union Ballroom Lounge. " We met and discussed topics that applied to current problems and how it related to the Bible, " President Lisa Amundson said. Besides a movie night that was sponsored by the group, FCA al so offered a hayride in the fall. " About 30-35 people attended the event and after the hayride we had a big campfire on the farm, " Chris Henze, social director for FCA, said. FCA, which was restarted ap- proximately four years ago, was open to anyone who wanted to join. Contrary to the group ' s name, members did not have to be ath- letes, Amundson said.

Robert Bohlken, adviser for the Newman Center, said they offered a movie night on Friday nights, a social for faculty members, study groups and swimming parties. The Newman Center also ac- tively participated in Amnesty In- ternational and sponsored the Last Lecture Series. " Of course, one of the primary things we provided for the student was mass on campus.

Being a member of these different religious ogani alions also ga e her the op- portunity to grow closer to God through bible stud and v orship time. " Kolaiah was a mime and drama group. " Warrick said. " It gave me a chance to perform for 220 Religious Groups God, and to use the talents He gave me. BSD was more of a learning experience and Bihie slud group. We went caroling at Christmas and we took a mission trip to Colorado and Michigan. " On the mission trips her organi- zation went on, the uoiild go door-to-door proselsti ing. (urg- ing those the) encountered to be- come followers), and dorniiior ministry while also working with other Baptist Student L ' nit ns throughout the state. So, whether one belonged to BSU, Chi .Alpha, F-r.- or an ot the other man Christian organiza- tions ottered to students on cam- pus, the benetits could have been numerous and er rewarding. " Don ' t worr) about our past church e pericnce or what de- nomination sou were, " Warrick said. " Christian organizations just tried to locus on the truth ol the Bible and lind a w a to gel closer to God and to each other. " This was the same spirit that could have been found at each of the Christian organizations. l:ach of the organizations was open to all students, no matter what their de- niMiiinational belicl and personal iipinions were. Some students attended many re- ligious organizations in order to gain a full religious background and understanding of their spiritu- ality while gaining the insight from seeking ditferent perspectives. Some attended for the social activi- ties that were offered for students. Others attended in order to meet other students who enjoyed their same Christian beliefs and w ho car- ried the same desire to continue worship and fellowship throughout their college career and first reli- gious freedom away from home. " Wesley was the first I went to, " Freeman said. " Then I went to BSU for a Christian social aspect. " Freeman attended both of the or- ganizations because there was such ditferent theological beliefs being presented. " It gave me an opportunity to explore theological aspects, " Free- man said. " Going to different cam- pus ministeries I was able to see the differences, but despite all the walls there was a basic belief-the belief in Jesus and Jesus was the Christ. " t.l. HON.- .

ACTIVITIES AND INVOLVEMENT PROVE THAT RESIDENCE HALLS ARE MORE THAN A Place to Call Home T I he residence halls were as much a part of University social life as were the parties. They provided leadership opportunities, an outlet for creativity and a chance for resi- dents to get involved. " I was a transfer student this year, " North Complex Vice Presi- dent, Curtis Heldstah said. " Hold- Wilh one hand behind his hack.

Photo by Don Carrick. ing a residence hall office was a good and quick way to get in- volved. I was picking up leadership qualities that would benefit me in my career as well as being an active decision maker in issues that af- fected me. " Activities such as the Franken Hall Haunted House and the Christ- mas decora- tion con- tests had be- come sea- sonal tradi- tions. The Haunted House was aimed at in- volving the community with the University by encour- aging the children to come. Do- nations of money or canned foods for the needy were col- lected for admittance. Half of the proceeds from the Haunted By Anne Roseman House went to a food charity spon- sored by the Maryville Baptist Church. " The Haunted House was for Maryville, " Assistant Hall Director Patty Swann said. " We converted the whole bottom of Franken into the haunted house. Admission was $1 with a canned food item and $2 without. The community involve- ment was really great. Some got dressed up to go through the haunted house and many went through twice. Overall, we made about $300 and half that was do- nated to the Maryville Baptist Church charity. " The Christmas spirit flowed throughout campus. Christmas par- ties and fundraisers were typical activities in the residence halls. Colored lights hung from the walls of many rooms. Doors were clut- tered with Christmas paraphernalia for decorating contests in halls such as North and South Complex. " We invited the kids of Mary ville to come and see Santa at our Christ- mas party, " South Complex Presi- dent, Cheryl McErany said. " After the kids left we ate and watched movies. " In the Christmas spirit of giving, Perrin Hall sponsored Toys for Tots. They collected games and toys for underprivileged children. The collected items were donated to an organization in Shenandoah, Iowa known as Operation Blessing. 222 Residence Halls Prepariitfi for Halloween Travis Garitm uses hedsprings to create a corridor in Franken Hall ' s Haunted Gauntlet.

" Perrin Hall Council President. Kenna Lambertsen said. " 1 was in Iowa over break and heard of Op- eration Blessing. Then I decided that this would be a good program to donate to. " Roberta Hall also joined in the spirit of giving with their canned food drive. The donations were given to the Mary ville Food Pantry. " Every person in Roberta was encouraged to give a canned item. " Assistant Hall Director of Roberta. Jennifer Chandler said. " Ail the canned food was donated to the Maryville Food Pantry. " Another tradition was the tightly knit second floor of Dieterich known as the Buckhorn Boys. Their main focus was to create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere be- tween everyone on the floor. According to Vice President Bill Humphreys, simple activities, like playing cards weekly and gathering together for a football game, con- tributed the most in bringing the floor together. " Our floor did a lot of activities together. Humphreys said. " Foot- ball games usually brought most of the floor together.

North Complex recreated an Elvis Presley scene under Tower Hall with the theme " Old Time Rock and Roll. " Hudson Hall gave out cash prizes to those indi idual halls which had the best decora- tions. A new and inventive activity was Dieterich Hall and Millikan Hall ' s own version of The Dating Game in September. Based on the television series The Dating Game, four bach- elors were set up on blind dates with four of the women from Millikan Hall. Each couple received $30 for their date. " It s as a lot of fun and e eryone seemed to enjoy it, " Millikan Hall Vice President. Jayne Pauley said. " We had three bachelorettes and one bachelor, then we alternated. We had it rigged up so that the bachelor and bachelorettes couldn ' t see each other, but the au- dience could see both. " According to Dieterich Hall Di- rector Brian Tenclinger. the men of Dieterich Hall found it to be just as enjoyable. " We didn ' t know how successful It wasgoing tobe, " Tenclingersaid. " Over 200 people showed up. It was really exciting to see the guys getting into it. They were yelling out things like, " pick number three ' . " As a result of the success, a Studs By Anne Rosenian version was scheduled for Valentine ' s Day. Dieterich Hall ' s stereotype for doing bizarre activities became ap- parent when they financed a Jell-O wrestling contest in October be- tween Millikan and Dieterich staffs. " It was interesting, " Tenclinger said. " I had never wrestled in Jell-O before and I was not sure that I wanted to again, but it was fun. There was over 100 gallons of Jell- O. It was very cold. " Other Dieterich Hall activities included a Jammy Jammy Jam party. Approximately ]5() partici- pants enjoyed a DJ and plenty of food. Those wearing their pajamas were admitted free. Dieterich Hall wasn ' t the only one with an imagination. North Complex hosted a lingerie show for the ladies complete with a sex toys display. " I thought the show was interest- ing and a good idea, " Katie Osbald said. " I w as not surprised to see that o er 40 people were there. You could order everything from linge- rie to body lotions. " Millikan Hall put their ladies to the fitness test in September with their Floor Olympics. Athletes competed in events such as peanut racing, an obstacle course and pud- ding eating. " You had to race across the floor blowing a peanut with a straw, " 224 Residence Halls Pauley said. " Other acii iiics in- cluded an obstacle course doing things like chewing five crackers and trying to whistle. Then we had toeatabow 1 nt pudding w iihiuit mir hands.

" A constitution was vital to any structured organization t ' orobv ious reasons, " John Wagner, North Complex president, said. " It was needed to set the rules and founda- tion .so that procedures could be followed through effecti ely. When we realized that our hall did not have one we immediately began to organize a constitution commit- tee. " At the end of the year Millikan Hall traditionally kicked off the summer v ith a Beach Bash party. The celebration was filled w ith pic- nic foods, volleyball games, and the ever-popular water fight. " The Beach Bash was just Miliikan ' s way of showing appre- ciation for the help and success of all the high rises. " Pauley said. Even on a campus sunx unded by a small town, college life had some very dangerous aspects. Rape was an important issue that most of the residence halls addressed with pro- grams and speakers. Lectures and defense classes were popular pro- grams among residents. By Anne Roseman Many of the individual halls of North Complex had self-defense programs to teach residents how to defend themselves against an at- tacker. " The class was to help promote safety awareness so the girls felt like they could protect themselves if they ever found themselves in a dangerous situation, " Rachelle Rojas, North Complex Tower Resi- dent Assistant, said. " We only learned the basic skills and they were not difficult so I thought that under pressure we would not forget them.

Its aim. however, focused on the preveniion ;iikI awareness of date rape. " Our sexual assault program was designed to promote date rape awareness. " Patty Swann said. " We discussed how to recogni e and a old situations that could lead to date rape. The discussion was open to both male and lernales. The combination was helpful in pre- senting a rounded perspective. " With all the Resident Assistants, some organization was needed to make sure that ihey all interacted together. The Residence Assistants Board w as created for this purpose. In addition to this, their job was to make changes within residential life to improve the system and env i- ronment for on-campus students. " We often had fun activities to make sure the RAs knew each other. " Bonnie Allen, RA Board Co-Chairman. said. " For instance, we played a game of football, al- though it turned out to be more like mud football. The most fun activ- ity, though, would have to be the football game we went to before any of the students came to cam- pus. We were very enthusiastic, making banners and cheering loudly, because no one else was there. Each hall competed to be the loudest and rowdiest. " The coordinator for all of these events was the Residence Hall As- sociation. The RHA ' s function was to make life ni the residence halN more fun for the residentsand allevi- ate many possible problems. Students were able to voice iheirconcernstothe RHA through pre- sentation or petition and have them con- sidered by RHA. These suggestions ranged from quiet hour changes to noise complaints. Complaints which dealt with campus dining were also heard by RHA. " As 1 o n g as people told us whal thev wanted, wc could usuall ac- commodate them and at least try to make that change. " Angel Bowman. Perrin Representative, said. " The Cam- pus Dining Committee tried to change some of the problems that students were complaining about. Among these were adding phone lines so the wait to order pizza less- ened and using food warmers so the lines would move faster. " RHA sponsored activities such as Shake, Rattle and Bow 1.

But for some, it also included helping others on campus and in the community. For students who belonged to service organizations, life could consist of spending hours a week trying making life better for others. There were several service orga- nizations set up to provide assis- tance to the school and community. Student Ambassadors was one of these organizations. Their purpose was to help prospective students learn about the campus and make them aware of what Northwest had to offer them that was unique to DAMPySACTlVlTi Comedian Vince Cumin peijorms for a crowd in the Sjumisli Den. CAPS hosted several comedians like Curranfree of charge for students to enjoy throughout the year, as well as bringing in top names like Steven Wright and Carrot Top. Photo by Chris Tucker. other colleges. In order to accomplish this the students involved gave up four to five hours a week to give tours of campus to prospective students and their parents. The ambassadors also helped during Freshman Orientation week to make new students feel welcome and comfortable in their new sur- roundings. During that week, they helped with registration, making sure the students were going to their advisers and getting into classes and also giving tours. " " We were mostly there as guides, because when you come to college you did not know anyone or where anything was, so we were here to point students in the right direc- tion, " David Flynn, vice president of Student Ambassadors, said. While prospective students came to campus for a tour from Student Ambassadors, potential agriculture majors received a tour of the agri- culture department from the Agri- culture Ambassadors. Ag Ambassadors helped in the recruitment of prospective students by showing them the agriculture facilities at Northwest. Sigma Society was another ser- vice group that worked not only on campus, but also in the community. Paula McClain was in charge of developing and coordinating ser- vice projects. McClain said that the group worked on at least one 228 Services prDject per month. The ideas tor some projects came from McClain ' s contacts in Maryville. " It made you feel good to know that you had made a difference, " McClain said. Sigma Society worked on many projects which benetited the com- munity. These projects included a book drive to help promote literacy, the " Coats for Kids " campaign and working with the Mary ille Cha- teau. They also babs-sat for parents during Drug Abuse Resistance Education and other organizational meetings, raised money for United Way and had a bridal show, for stu- dents and community members who were planning weddings. The Bridal Show, Sigma Society ' s biggest fundraiser, was an annual event. Local businesses donated dresses, door prizes and set up booths for customers. It took a lot of time and hard work to make this show become a success. The show featured formal v ear and it was an enjoyable experience for other members of the community as well as for brides-to-be. " The most rewarding projects vsere the coat and book dri e; ev- eryone was required and in oh ed, " McClain said. " They made me proud because 1 knew they were positive about being involved. " For Mar ille " s annual Winter Wonderland. Sigma Society spon- sored a Christmas tree, helped set up and dressed up as Santa " s ehes. According to Sigma Society member Tiffany Nincehelser. members usually put in at least two to three hours every week organiz- ing projects and events, but they did get something out of their efforts. " It was fun working with other people and helping out people who needed help, " Nincehelser said.

The Spencer ' s illusion show and hyp- notist, Jim Wand, embraced the unusual and the extreme with their displays of magic and mental en- ticement. Hollywood came to the Mary Linn Performing Arts Center when CAPs brought in feature films to add excitement to Maryville weekends. The KIDS organization pro- vided a Big Brother Big Sister pro- gram to those children from Horace Mann Lab School and Maryville Head Start. Members were each assigned a child and saw their " kid " at least twice a month for a couple of hours at each visit. There were also various parties held for them, some during the holidays. " For Christmas, we had a roller- skating party, " Kristen Pryor said. " Taking a 3-year-old skating was definitely an experience for me. " According to president Michelle Gibbs, they tried to provide the children with positive role models a nd also show them a glimpse of the college atmosphere. KIDS ' members also did work with the community by providing babysitting for Head Start and Home-Base parent meetings. Circle K, a student branch of the Kiwanis Club, worked to cive KIDS.

HOST CONCERTS, SPONSOR SPEAKERS. ALL IN THE NAME OF AWARENESS Making The Difference I By Shane Whitaker and Anne Roseman n a society where there were so many different kinds of people, ac- knowledging each cultural group and where they fit in could be a difficult task. One of the many aims of the multicultural organizations on campus was to do just that - promote cultural awareness and di- versity, as well as togetherness. One positive aspect of Northwest ' s multicultural groups was that they were designed to wel- come every kind of student. None of the organizations discluded a person because they were not a cer- tain race or color. According to Alliance of Black Colleuians member Mallisa Seamster, ABC started at the begin- ning of the year pointing out they were not an all-black organization. " Some programs we put on had us work with different races. " " Seamster said. " ' We did have white members. " ' To create an even greater sense of cultural diversity, groups worked together on projects or ideas in an attempt to reach out to the Maryville community. In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr " s birthday, ABC invited Kansas City Mayor Emanuel Cleaver to speak on campus, and also held a Candlelight Walk from Mabel Cook Visitors Center to the Bell Tower.

' " Something that bound us together was that a lot of us were homesick. We were not so much an organization as we were a family. " The Chinese New Year occurred around the third week of January each year and CSA celebrated the Chinese New Year in style with an authentic Chinese dinner and a party afterwards.

When the subject of sports came up in conversation, these were usually the teams that came to mind. Besides these more well- known sports, there w ere also many special interest groups such as the Bearcat Sweethearts, the Co-Ed Soccer Club, the Flag Coips, the M- Club, Northwest Cheerleaders and the Bearcat Steppers. The Bearcat Sweethearts sat in the stands at every game, faithfully cheering on the Bearcat football team. The Sweethearts were a cheering section quite unlike the cheerleaders. This group of women faithfully followed the team ' s progress throughout the season. They were also the team ' s support group. " We provided the team with en- thusiasm and support at every home game and when the team went out on the road, we provided them with a send off. " Jennifer Kennedy said. " We also kept in contact with the players ' parents throughout the season. " In addition to attending the games, the women were actively invoKed in the recruiting process, helping show potential players and their parents around Maryville and on campus during recruiting visits. Besides pro ' iding support for By Jessica Harp the team, the Sweethearts also sold theirown variety of barbecue sauce which was fondly referred to as " Cat-Nip. " " The sauce was nicely received, " Hope Droegemueller said. " Bobby Bearcat was on the bottle, as was a story about how the sauce origi- nated. " Every day for two to three hours, right next to w here the band and the football team practiced, the North- west Co-Ed Soccer Club also prac- ticed.

" The club offered students a way to participate in theirsport of choice without hav ing lo devote loo much time to it. During liall-tiiiic at home foot- ball games, the Flag Corps per- formed. The Flag Corps marched on the field, using Hags as props. They also performed in competi- tions and at a Chiefs ' game during half-time.

" The M-Ciub vv as an organization that any letter winner was automati- cally a member of.

" The M-Club really gave me a chance to get to know some of the athletes that participated in other sports. " Heide Meinders said. The Bearcat Cheerleaders moti- vated the fans at sporting events. The group, which included both male and female members, served the purpose of getting the crowd excited about the game. They u.sed stunts, cheers and the ever-present Bobby Bearcat to do so. " Because of the dangerous stunts that we did. we really had to be part of a team and trust each other. " Brian Turner said. " It really gave us a sense of pride to be able to help out our team. " The Bearcat Steppers were a dance team that performed during football games and at some basket- ball games.

WHETHER ITWASIUST FOR FUN OR A SERIOUS COMMITTMENT. STUDENTS WERE ALWAYS Breaking the Monotony 1. J eing involved in organiza- tions was important to many stu- dents. Between classes and study- ing, there was always a little tree time. Many students chose to invest that free time injiiining an organi- zation. Although there was a diverse range of groups for students to get involved in, some students chose a route that was slightly off the beaten path — they chose to join groups that helped fit their need for a special hobby or interest. Beta Sigma Phi, a social and ser- vice organization, had a busy year. The members of Beta Sigma Phi were members of St. Francis Hos- pital Auxiliary. There was only one requirement for becoming a mem- ber; everyone who joined had to be a woman. " Beta Sigma Phi was basically a social and service organization, " Gerry Bade said. " The group began in the " 308 to bring interest to women and to enrich their lives. Our motto, ' life, learning and friendship, " helped bring our group close. We had a hard time getting started this year, but we wanted to get more members. " Promoting alcohol awareness, Chi Phi Chi. a co-ed, non-alcoholic fratern ity, helped make it clear to many students that they could have fun without using alcohol. " Chi Phi Chi was a non-sub- stance organization, which basi- cally meant that we had no alcoliol at our lunclions, " Andrea Riggs said. Chi Phi Chi brought CHEERS to Maryville. CHEERS (Creatively Helping Establish and Educate Re- sponsible Society) was an organi- zation supporting desig- nated drivers. " It was present mostly in college towns, " Carla Huskey said. CHEERS was state- funded, and it began at the University of Missouri-Co- lumbia. It was designed to gi e students a positiv e rea- son to not drink and drive. All bars in town partici- pated in the program. " What would happen was the bars would get cups with CHEERS printed on them to give to the desig- nated driver, " Huskey said. " That designated driver would then get complimen- tary non-alcoholic drinks all evening.

Most greek organizations were required to have a national cause, charity or organization which they were to support with devoted time, money and energy. Greeks raised money to support their organiza- tions throughout the year by hold- ing many different special events and fundraisers for the benefit of the community and University. Generally, the organizations would give their support to differ- ent national groups, but occasion- alls two groups found they had adopted the same philanthropy. Such was the case for Alpha Sigma Alpha and Tau Kappa Epsilon, who both supported the Special Olym- pics. The games, which were held in St. Joseph in the spring, gave the Alphas and TKEs the opportunity to lend encouragement, support and inspiration to the competitors in- volved. " Being able to help also gave us a special feeling. " Melanie Griswold. Alpha president, said. " It helped us see other people ' s lifestyles and made us realize their special needs. We couldn ' t show our sadness, but it made us realize what they had to go through daily. " To help raise more money, the TKEs organized both a basketball shoot-out and a body-building con- test. The Alphas had their annual carwash to bring in money to sup- port the Olympics. Delta Sigma Phi and Alpha Phi Alpha also contrib- uted to the same na- tional philan- thropy. The March of Dimes reaped the benefits of the fra- ternities " contribu- tions. The Delta Sigs participated in the National Walk- A-Thon and their Kansas State chapter ' s annual Softball tourna- ment. " The Walk-A- Thon allowed us to get a group of about 40 guys to walk to- gether, " Chad Nelson, Delta Sig president said. " It provided our group with unification and a chance to take a break. " The Delta Sigs also organized an arm- wrest ling competition which was then held dur- ing the spring. Al- pha Phi Alpha also contributed their share of time and money by donating their chapter ' s funds to the March of Dimes charity. 240 Greeks Phi Mu decided to contribute to not only one, but tw o national orga- nizations in which lime and money were devoted to. The Children ' s Miracle Network Telethon and Project Hope were supported through funds raised from an an- nual campus-wide s vim-a-thon. ■■Raising mone for the philan- thropies brought us all closer to- gether and ga e us a good feeling, " Paula Holtman, Phi Mu. said. ■■!! was good for everyone because in the middle of all the fim and games. we took lime out to think of others.

The Robbie Page Memorial, which raised money for play- therapy in hospitals, was the phi- lanthropy chosen by Sigma Sigma Sigma. The Sigmas applied for a grant of $ 1 ,000 from the National Sigma Foundation and donated it to Children ' s Mercy Hospital. Sig- mas also held raftles, a she-male pageant and Valentine fundraisers to raise money for the memorial. " Working on our phi- lanthropy helped us work to- gether and made us re- alize how fortunate we were, " Angle Hopkins said. " It was neat to take a tour of the hospital and watch the little kids play in the playroom with the toys we helped raise money to buy. Seeing the smiles on their faces brought smiles to our faces. " Alpha Kappa Lambda chose to assist in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. To help out, each month they adopted a different child who had been diagnosed with the dis- ease from St. Jude Hospital in New Jersey. AKLs raised money for their child by holding a bowl-a- thon and a spaghetti dinner. " Each month we all chipped in money and wrote a letter to the child we adopted, " Todd Boggess said. " They sent us a picture and if they were old enough, they some- times wrote back to us. It was nice to keep in touch with who we were helping. " Speech and hearing impediments were the focus of the Delta Zeta ' s philanthropy work. Galludet Uni- versity and House Ear Institute were supported through funds raised in various events. Shaleen Roth said that early involvement was a positive start for the future. " If people started getting in- volved now, they would be more likely to stay involved later in life, " Roth said.

" They did bowling and bingo with the residents and other afternoon activities. " The time and support given to the residents was appreciated by every- one involved.

" For the residents it was good to have the younger generation inter- act with the older. " Heaton said. " They didn ' t experience that a lot. Their visits brightened the resi- dents " day and lightened the staffs work load too. " The Big Brother Big Sister pro- gram was also a favorite activity that many greek organizations liked to participate in. The program al- lowed students to interact with the younger generation by playing games. watching movies or just hanging out. " The guys really liked to work with the Big Brother pro- gram , " Mike Cauldwell. Phi Sigma Kappa presi- dent, said. " The kids sometimes didn ' t have a good family lifeoralotof money and it was nice for them to have a place to es- cape to and have a good time. Seeing the smiles on their faces made it all worth it. " Helping area children in the Head Start pro- gram was also a fa orite way to give back to the community. " Members got excited when we did things with Head Start because they got to sit down and play with the kids. " Shaleen Roth, Delta Zeta, said. " We also got to see the other side of things and feel gratification knowing we helped. " Greeks enjoyed participating in these programs with area children because they were able to have fun while serving as role models. A few greek organizations in- creased their community involve- ment e en further by joining the Mary ille Chamber of Commerce. Other community work done by greeks ranged from raking leaves and painting, to food drives. CAMPUS INVOLVEMENT Another focus of greek life was campus involvement. Members of the greek society participated in Greek Week, Homecoming, intramurals and other campus-re- lated programs and events. In a week w hich w as set aside just for them, the fraternities and sorori- ties promoted involvement among their own organizations and the whole greek system. " During Greek Week we were able to interact with the other frater- nities and sororities, " Henry Bless- 244 Greeks Sif ma Sii;ma Sii;mci Heidi Lime pre- pares to kick the foolhall in the Punt.

" The organizations spent time helping others as well as having a good time during Greek Week. A contest was held to see w hich orga- nization could collect the most clothing items v hich were given to the needy. Also benetitting during the seck were the children of Camp Quality, a camp for cancer ictims. A rock- ing chair marathon was held on the Courthouse Square, and while some greeks rocked, others col- lected money from passersby. The event raised over $600 for Camp Quality. " Greek Week was a time to rela. before finals, to have fun and get to know other people outside our or- ganization. " Lisa Stagenian, .Sigma Sigma Sigma, said. Homecoming also ga e greeks a chance to ork together to promote school spirit. Working on floats, house decs, clowns and ariety show skits kept them busy before and during the week. Some organi- zations had trouble getting into the swing of things throughout the week because of other problems they were dealing w ith.

" It really threw us off balance because we really wanted to save our house. " Some organizations chose to do- nate all or part of the money which they would have spent on a float to the Hurricane Andrew Relief Fund. " Everyone was very supportive of the idea of using the money we had budgeted for a float to help those affected by Hurricane An- drew. " Melinda Roesch. Alpha Sigma Alpha, said. " A float would have been a lot of work and we felt better about spending our money on the relief fund. " Intramu- ral sports were an- other popu- lar activity among greek orga- nizations. From cross country competi- tion to wally-ball, these sports were a great way to re- lieve stress after a long day of class. They provided organized sports for those students who did not wish to com- pete on an upper-varsity level. Or- ganizations attempted to secure at least one team in each event and get as many members involved as pos- sible to represent them. This system helped groups to win points in com- petition and also provided group unity. " We finally realized that every- one had to compete to improve, " Jeff Roe. TKE vice president, said. " Intramurals provided better per- sonal growth and chapter stand- ing " " Some chapters found themselves struggling to place teams in each event because of a lack of participants. This was not the case at all for the Delta Chis. who had plenty of interested members. " We had enough guys to participate in all of the events and to support the fraternity, " John Zimmer, Delta Chi. said. Intramurals acted as a way to relieve stress for many greeks. It was a way for them to get to know more about members in their own organization and others in a more relaxed environment. " Intramurals gave new members a chance to meet the actives with no pressure, " Amy Huston, Phi Mu, said. " They were there to have fun and get to know each other, win- ning was not the prime impor- tance. " Through support from their na- tional philanthropies, the local community and the campus, a greater understanding of the ben- efits of helping others and commu- Della Sigma Phi alumnus Lariy Garcia and President Chad Nelson display the charter Tony Blanton.

These activities were an outlet for energy, provided a feeling of satis- faction by helping others and gave a sense of unity by working to- gether. Participation in these activi- ties, plus the work which was al- ready done for their own organiza- tions, assisted the greeks in work- ing toward more positive images for themselves on a local and na- tional level. Greek.s proved that v hi!c being in social organizations pro ided several fun acti ities for those involved, it also required spending time helping those in need. For many members of these organizations, a great sen.se of ac- complishment and a swell of pride was gained from it. PHI MU ACTIVES 1.

These awards helped iden- tify the groups and their achieve- ments. Awards won included those from national chapters, through Greek Week and those awards won during Homecoming. National awards played an im- portant part in the Delta Zeta soror- ity. Annual State Day, a day that recognized outstanding chapters within the state, helped motivate members to con- tinue to strive to- wards excellence. " Winning the awards helped mo- tivate our members because it was a real honor to win them, " Jodi Bergren said. " They also encour- aged us to strive to- ward winning again ne.xt year. " National awards won during State Day included: Phi- lanthropy Award, Recording Secre- tary and Lamp Edi- tor.

Tau Kappa Epsilon also excelled through their national chapter through winning awards for Greek Week. Through their national chap- ter the TKEs won a recruitment award and also the Superior Chap- ter Award. During Greek Week, the awards for Overall Greek Games Champion, Most Spirtied Greek Week Song and Outstanding Ban- ner were captured. Outstanding Greek Organization and Outstanding Greek Male were awarded to the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter during Greek Week. The Sig Eps also were recognized by their national chapter with the Man- power Award for activating 90 per- cent of their pledges and the Excel- sior Cup Award, the national award given for health and well-being. The Sig Eps said that by striving to w i n awards it helped define their group. " People joined for the orga- nization not the material- istic val- 248 Greeks ues, " Mike Wolbert said. " We tried to have every active on at least one committee. " The Sigma Tau Gamma chapter was awarded the Most Impro ed Chapter and Man of the Year awards from their national chapter. Although the chapter was small, through the Uni ersity the Sig Taus also won the Unity Award for par- ticipation. Sigma Sigma Sigma was also recognized for their outstanding work during the year. During Greek Week the group was awarded: Outstanding Greek Orga- nization. Outstanding l{ducation Program. Outstanding Philan- thropy Work and Highest GPA for the activ es and pledges. To achieve these awards, individual members worked together as a team to stay a step above the rest. " We had a good di erse group of girls uho strived to work together to achieve common goals, " Kristi Hav ley said.

" We wanted to make sure the individual was sound aca- demically and sound in the humani- tarian point of view while stressing service to the community. " Delta Sigma Phi stood apart from the rest during Homecoming week as they marked the 25th anniver- sary of their chapter. The group, founded in 1967. focused much of their Homecoming time on prepar- ing a barbecue for alumni and na- tional representatives. Members looked forward to the festivities because they re- ceived a new charter to replace the one that was d e - stroyed. " Our original charter was lost when our house burned down, " Chad Nel- son said. " During Homecom- ing we re- ceived a re- placement copy. " Alpha Kappa Lambda was also a unique group because they were only one of two non-secretive fra- ternities in the nation. Non-secre- tive fraternities were those with no secret passwords or handshakes. The AKLs were involved in cam- pus activities and were credited with the most participation for the Bloodmobile. During Greek Week they won first place in the chariot race. Although the group was small, it was the quality not the quantity that mattered. " We were smaller in number and our members did not feel like just Meiuhers of Alpha Sigma Alpha gather together for their gronp picture on Bill Day. A highlight of the year was ihiring the Variety Show when their skit " Lavente and Sirley ' s Homecoming Re- union " placed first in the sorority division.

" We had such a wide range of people and we all fit in some- where, " Mary Lynn Higginbotham said. " We were not a bunch of cliques, but instead we were a bunch of individuals working to- gether to accomplish the same goals. " ' Nationally, the Alpha Sigma Al- pha sorority was awarded the Crown of Excellence, which was the award given to the most out- standing chapter on campus. Also, the Alphas decided against the tra- ditional by not building a float for the Homecoming parade. " Instead of doing a float, they do- nated the money to the Hurricane Andrew victims, " Amanda Blecha, adviser, said. The Delta Chi fraternity was rec- ognized for their leadership. They were voted as outstanding campus leadership and member involve- ment, in community service and intramural programs. " We were well-rounded. " John Ferris said. " We had varsit ath- letes and student senators. " Joining greek organi ati(ms helped many students feel like they w ere part of a group of students that worked toward imprming them- selves, the campus and the wiirld around them. Recognition and awards served as motivation for members to surpass what they had done in the past. Although the greek organizations operated as indi- vidual members, they were re- minded " No Matter the Letters, We Are All Greeks Together. " SIGMA TAU GAMMA.

Greeks 251 kQplE Although we were here to reach similar goals, we all had our own way of getting things done, which was often to our advantage. It seemed as if everyone played a part in campus events and activities, but those behind the scenes made everything come together. When we ransacked the library for research materials, somebody else reshelved the scat- tered books. Thanks to the campus mail sys- tem we did not have to trek to the Post Office to retrieve our letters and packages and the registrar saw to it that we were not held in suspense as grades for the fall semester arrived at our homes just before Christmas. Some of us were more visible than others, but whether we were Bobby Bearcat, a night custodian or a student instructor, we each made a difference in our own way.

The thought of repeating a class in order to help others learn the material may have been a frightening thought to some, but to student instructors it was a way to contribute to the student body while gaining valuable teaching experience. Si ' s offered academic assistance to stu- dents enrolled in what were considered " high- risk " classes. The classes labeled high-risk were courses that had a 30 percent drop or failure rate for a semester. The Si ' s assisted students by taking notes in class, holding extra study sessions and answering any questions students might have. Si ' s were not necessarily majors in the area they taught, but had taken the course before and done well. Sitting in an extra class may not have been the most pleasant experience, but it was im- portant to the Si ' s and to the students they assisted. Kevin Kooi found being an SI fulfilled his work component as well as giving him expe- rience in his major. " Being an education major, students had a ' He is not agovemment major, but he can help me out " attitude, " Kooi said. Kooi enjoyed government class when he took it and was eager to help other students w ith their learning experience. He spent three hours each week in Dr. Robert Dewhirst ' s Introduction to American Government and Politics class and took notes to use during his study sessions. " I felt that government was my strong point, " Kooi said. " I thought I knew it well enough to be able to help people. That was why I chose Dewhirst ' s class. " Kooi thought that the experience of being an SI offered him a chance to learn, while doing something he enjoyed and helping oth- ers. " I enjoyed being able to help, " Kooi said. " I enjoyed the one-on-one and I liked the interaction with the students. " Others looked upon being an SI as a way to reaffirm the knowledge they had gained in earlier classes. They also saw themselves as role models who promoted learning to others. They were living examples that students could make it through " high-risk " classes. Lori Hartman thought the experience was something special because not everyone was chosen to be an SI. " I have learned a lot and it has made my upper-level government classes easier by going back to the basics, " Hartman said. " It was really kind of an honor. " Hartman ' s SI experience went beyond tu- toring and having study sessions when her adviser. Dr. David McLaughlin, left for two weeks to go abroad. During this time Hartman was given the opportunity to in- struct two of six class periods by giving quizzes and reviewing class material. A guest speaker and lecturer was on hand during the remaining class times. " I gave quizzes and went over them on both Wednesdays, " Hartman said. " It probably did not make me very popular. " Whether Si ' s were giving quizzes or tuto- rial sessions, their time paid off not only for the students they helped with classwork, but for themselves as well. The experience they gained was invaluable and the students they helped seemed grateful. -Jason Hoke Sue Ann Bollinghouse. MBA Stacey Calfee, Elem. Education Shawna Conner.

A speech and theater education major. .Shawn had early thoughts about entertaining audiences and keeping spirits up. " As a child I wanted to be a clown for the rodeo. " Shawn said. " 1 first came here and saw Bobby entertain- ing kids and 1 wanted to do it. " Shawn tried to keep his identity a secret from almost everyone. Even some of his friends did not know he wa.s the mascot. " I did not go out of my way to tell people my name. " Shawn said. " My friends sat around talking about Bobby and I just aizreed with them until someone who knew Uk ' A .! -M let them Ml on my secret. " Because he wanted to keep his identity hidden, it was not always easy being Bobby. Sometimes Shawn had to pay the price of keeping his identity as Bobby a secret. " I lost one job when 1 told my boss 1 could not work basketball game nights. " Shaw n said. " He scheduled me on Fridays and when 1 did not show up he fired me because he could not work around my schedule. " Shawn admitted that wearing a full cos- tume, while jumping and dancing around during an entire game got hot and exhaust- ing. " I lost five pounds of water weight every basketball game. " Shawn said. Shawn was able to interact with the cheerleaders in practice by working with them on a pyramid and basket toss. To- gether, he and the squad worked hard to increase spirit at games and cheer the team to victory. Bobby Bearcat was a symbol to many Northwest fans that boosted morale and spirit.

Nothing stops the . . . Ruin, sleet, snow or hail — nothing stopped the campus mail. There were six people who worked in the campus mail room five days a week sorting and distributing the various letters and packages. The process of mail delivery was actually quite simple, but it did take time. One full-time worker. Bob Schrunk, picked up all campus mail at the post office in Maryville around 10 a.m. He then ttiok the mail that went to the residence halls to the front desk of each hall. The rest was sorted in the Administration Building. " I picked up the mail in K separate bags from the post of- fice and took it to the dorms, " Schrunk said. " We tried to get it to the dorms as soon as pos- sible, usually around 10:30 a.m. " The desk workers and Resident Assistants stuffed mailboxes in the halls. In Hudson Hall people signed up for mail hours, in which they would sort and distribute mail to students. Some desk workers thought it was a hassle to have to sort the campus mail for students so they managed to get someone else to be responsible for their mail hour. " Personally, I thought sorting and stuffing mailboxes was a pain, " Amanda Wessel, an RA in Hudson Hall, said. " So I had somebody else take my hour. " Just as in a U.S. Post Office, working in the campus mail room was more hectic at some times than others. Mondays held more tasks than the rest of the week. Although Central Receiving handled most of the packages sent to students in the resi- dence halls, the holidays proved to be more stressful due to the immense amount of mail that was sent and received. Handling large packages could be a difficult job for mail employees. " During Christmas there was more to do because of all the packages that were sent, " Chris Giesken, who worked in the campus mail room for two years, said. Another hectic time for handling mail was during other holidays and when the seasons changed because students who lived far from Maryville needed different clothing. " There was also more to do on Valentine ' s Day and when the seasons changed and people were mailing clothes, " Geiseke said. Receiving letters from family, boyfriends and girlfriends and bill collectors was impor- tant and all those who delivered mail took pride in what they did to ensure that students and faculty got their mail. - Sara Meyers Yavonna Carter Traci Casson Tate Castillo Lorena Castro Kan Cecil Aimee Chadwick Lydia Chapin Kenneth Chiang Marchelle Christ Michelle Christensen Christine Christiansen Traci Cipponeri Jennifer Clark Melissa Clark Robyn Clark Shawn Clark Roy Clemens Cory Clevenger William Codina Deandra Cogdill Greg Cole Rob Colerick Jennifer Collantes Tim CoUett 266 Undergraduates Lynne Collins Nliircella Collins Sharon Collon Killcen Connollcy Siace) Connors Karen Constable Crystal Copp Keith Corbin Kricka Corrado fili abeth Ciittinghani Robert Co ell BraJshaw Cowan Dara Cox Karen Cox Sheila Cox Randy Craig Jennifer Grain Ellen Cramer Jeanine Craven Brian Crawford Jennifer Crocco Rhonda Crocker Lisa Crouse Amy Cro ier Sara Crutcher Heidi Cue Theresa Cullen Fay Dahlquist Mari Daiber Wendy Dalton Scott Daniels Retta Dan- Jim Davis Eric Davolt Susan Dawson Karie Deal Brian Dean Jennifer Deardorif Jenny DeBlauw Tammy Dejong Trent Delmont Tcena DeMay Daria DeMoss Kristy Dennehy Nicholas Denney Rebecca Denton Taunya Derry Jennifer DeVore Russell DeVries Lavenia Dew Bryan Dickerson Jennifer Dickson Michelle Diggs Deidre Dobbins Tami Dodson Brandon Dollen Julie Donaldson Kimberly Donaldson Colleen Donovan Holly Dorrel Jennifer Dougan Clint Douglas Robert Douglas Julie Drake Tanya Drake Tracie Drennen Lisa Drey William Dreyfus Cheri Driskell Hope Droegemueller Regina Duffy Angel Dukes Lisa Dunning Martin Dust Danette Duvall Stephanie Duvall Brett Dwyer Michael Edge Melissa Ediin Rebecca Ehlert Undergraduates 267 The Stroller has been a permanent fixture on campus for 75 years, taking students on a . . .

The mere mention of the Stroller ' s name brought to mind anonym- ity and controversy. Each year the Northwest Missourian chose a new Stroller and the only people who knew the identity of the Stroller were the editor and the Stroller himself. Traditionally, the Stroller was considered the " oldest student on campus " and could write on any chosen topic, as long as it was in good taste and was not libelous. " It was all free-writing, " Kathy Barnes, editor-in-chief of the Northwest Missourian, said. " There were, however, times when we did have to edit out things in the column because of libel. " This year the Stroller commented on in- coming freshmen, gave pointers on how to deal with roommates and dug deep into the way students felt about taking tests. He also talked about the not to be forgotten, " mysterious orange hue " that spread itself over students ' shoes. The " hue " was simply a chemical used to preserve the grass, but with his sarcastic wit, the Stroller made students laugh. " My shoes were turning a nice shade of orange, " the Stroller said. " I was going to be a big man on campus after everyone saw my shoes. But I have heard secret meetings going on between Hubbard and Campus Safety director Tom Dover to discuss a $25 fine for anyone with orange shoes. " The Stroller often tackled touchy subject matter ranging from student dating to the activities of fraternities and sororities. Al- though the Stroller ' s gender was never re- vealed at any particular time, there were times when the Stroller was a female. In the 1920 Christmas issue, the Stroller asked Santa Claus to bring faculty member Jasper Adams a new girifriend and to bring Coach Rice a wife. In 1939, the Stroller had one of its more memorable moments, involving the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity. One day an artist was giving a demonstration on campus and showed work that Horace Mann students had done. The Stroller was present and saw a strange looking creation with two eyes and two ears on the same side of the face. He heard stu- dents joking that it resembled a certain Sig Tau, and incorporated that into his column. The story was published in the column, and upon publication, the Sig Taus insisted the identity of the Stroller be revealed. In the next issue, the column was axed. Protests by read- ers did no good, but a call from the Student Council ensured the Stroller ' s return. Since then, the Stroller has had its share of criticism and controversy, but remains an important piece of Northwest history. -Kathy Higdon and Jennifer Mahoney f « ! n o k.- 268 Undergraduates f i .r i ) " A £ A Kendra Formanek Renae Forsberg l.aurcl hortney Lisa Fosicr Shannon Foster Mindi Fowler Melissa Fox Rebecca Francois Aaron Franklin l.ance Fredrickson Karie Free Angela Freeman Michael Freeman Andrea Friedman Derek Frieling Stephanie Frueh Aaron Fry Kevin Fuller Chad Ciammon Andrea ( iarcia Angela (iarcia Dawn fiardner Mary Garily Angela Garreau Kent Garretson Travis Garton Christina Gar a Lisa Gasiorowski Marsha Gates Robert Ga away Michael Geiger Karri Gcnthe Michelle Gibbs Karla Giermann John Giesken Carrie CJit ' fee Marcia Gillenwater Penny Gilniore Lisa Giltner Malissa Gittins Christina Givler Stephanie Glosser Jody Gochenour Joseph Godfimon Heather Goforlh Alexis Ciood Lisa Gowler John Grantors Jenny Gratias Joshua Gray Stacey Grell Amanda Griffen Theresa Griffith Linda Grissom Gina Gubser Jennifer Gum Karen Gunia Trevor Gustafson Amy Gustin Marcy Guyer Michele Hackett Steven Hafner Angel ique Hager Kara Hagerty Renee Hahn Alan Halnkel Crystal Hainkel Sara Hake Joann Hall Karyn Hallberg Kamii Hamann Scotte Hansen Karey Hanway Mark Harding Anita Hardy Kimberly Hardy Jeff Harin Jennifer Harkrider Lori Harms Jenifer Harr Undergraduates 269 Scott Harr Sherry Han- Kevin Hairington Rosetta Harris Katie HarTis{in Kenny Harrison Racheile Hartley Becky Hassig Lee Hawkins Dana Hayden Dawn Hayes LaMarr Haynes James Ha en Joel Heinzeroth Shawna Heldenbrand Curtis Heldstab Jennifer Hellebuyck Joyce Hendren Matthew Henjes Jason Henle Angela Hennig Mary Henry Nicola Hensler Michelle Hensley Amy Hermreck Karl Hertz Kathleen Higdon Chad Highland Jeremy Hill Kim Hill Timothy Hill Tomoko Hiraoka Knsty Hofmeister Jason Hoke Renee Holdenned Paula Holtman Beth Homan Dawn Hoover Denise Hopf Angle Hopkins Nicole Hopper Christian Hombaker Lynn Homberg Scott Horton Sonya Hoskins Timothy Houlette Heather Houseworth Robert Houtchens Joy Howard Stephanie Howard Crystal Hubbard Janelle Hubbard Kiisten Huber Anna Hughes Michael Hughes Michael Hughes Joni Hull Nancy Humo Bryant Hunter Jennifer Hust Dionne Ivanko Danielle Jean-Francois Mirielle Jean-Francois Jessica Jelinek Scott Jenson Shelly Jermain Chad Johnson Craig Johnson Deborah Johnson Jason Johnson Joanna Johnson Melissa Johnson Sandra Johnson Sharon Johnson Shelley Johnson Sherri Johnson Stacey Johnson Franklin Jones Connie Juranek Eriko Kaji 1 am n c ( Ink % ( § 0h 270 Undergraduates Knowledge and love of sports gives intramural referees the opportunity to . . . What is white vMtli black stripes and can be tound at athletic e ents ' It is ncU a zebra v ho o es spurts, but an intramural referee. ntramural sports played an important role at the Uni ' ersity. They prosided an opportu- mt tor participation in man activ ities. both team and indi idual. illovved students to remain physically active and gave them an opportunity to com- pete without committing themselves to the demands of a varsity sport. Such sporting events ranged from common sports such as basketball and vol- leyball, to the uncommon water basketball. The key that made intramurals so successful was the work of student ref- erees. They were able to con- trol the game they were ref- ereeing while also having un. For Sheila Cole, participa- tion in high school sports gave her the needed background and knowledge of the sports that was necessary to be a succes.sful referee. Cole thought that intramurals were an im- portant part of Northwest because they al- lowed students to productively get rid of the o e ri r ' ' stress that went along with college, rather than letting it btuld up inside. intramurals were also important for those students w ho did not or could not compete on the University ' s varsity teams. " Intramurals were important as stress re- lievers and they allowed students a form of participation in a sport if they did not want to play at the collegiate level. " Cole said. According to Cole, it was not difficult to become an intramural referee. The Univer- sity provided training and opportunity for those who thought they might be interested in a refereeing position. " If you wanted to ref for a certain sport, you went to the intramural office and let them know. " Cole said. " They would teach you the rules and then you had to take a test over those rules. First preference was given to those who had experience in the sport. " Although her job was enjoyable, there were some drawbacks. Student athletes sometimes asked Cole to bend the rules. " One time I was reffing a game and some of the guys I knew on the team asked me to cheat for them. " Cole said. " I just laughed and told them no. " Intramural referees provided that essential piece of the puzzle that made intramural sports at the University popular and success- ful. - Jennifer Krai r r: Andrea Kalal Suresli Kandiah Kostas Kapelis Mittiael Karlin Ronald Kamowski Brian Kassar Matthew Kastel Christopiier Kates Shannon Keane Chris Keeling Kelly Keifer David KeHis Jenny Kempema Richard Kenkel Jennifer Kennedy Chad Kennett Chad Kent Nathan Kent Scott Kent Kari Kerchner Rhonda Kienast David Kinen Jennifer Kingsley Jodi Klemme Undergraduates 27 1 Class starts in 20 minutes, but the thought of sacrificing the comfort of a cozy bed is too much to bear, it ' s time for the inevitable . . . ]U Most common excuses students gave for missing classes. 1 .

After the last final had been taken, students could put their focus on Christmas and shopping or suminer |obs and tans. For man) University staff members, however, work did not enil w ilh finals, it only began. One of the last tasks for workers w as sending grades to students. Whether stu- dents wanted their grades or not, it was Marolyn Alloway " s job to enter the final grades into the computer. Many students did not re- alize that the job of entering almost 6,000 students " grades fell on the shoulders of one person. Howe er. since Northwest went " on- line. " the job of entering grades was upgraded slowly from a punch card system to being totally computerized. Before the system was computerized, entering grades was more difficult. The computer system elimi- nated the bulky paperwork that went along with entering grades. " Each professor sent in a class list with the final grades, " Alloway said. " This method was a lot less bulky and there was onl one keystroke per student. In the end the computer helped things go faster. " .Allow ay also said that gradescame in bit by bit and as they caine in she would start to work on them. On the average, entering all of the grades usually took about eight hours. Although Alloway commented that the job was challenging, there were no real draw- backs. Aside from one minor incident, no serious mistakes or problems had resulted in the course of entering students ' grades. " There was only one time that we had a problem. " Alloway said. " It was din ' ing mid- terms and we had just changed our program. The wrong grades were sent to the wrong student and they got the grades before we caught it. Then we just had to go back and print out the right grades. " The Registrar ' s Office also set deadlines for when they wanted grades out. By setting deadlines, teachers began their breaks sooner and students got their grades quickly. " We usually tried to get the grades out before the holidays for the fall semester and within two days after the spring semester, " Alloway said. Computerization made life easier for many people on campus, but none felt the relief quite as much as the woman behind the grades. The technology and sy.stem upgrades allowed her the chance to complete her task quickly and there were very few drawbacks or problems that got in the way of the process. -Jennifer Krai Deedra Oakley Amie Ogden I, lira Ogden Nancy Onliveros Angie Orr Jiiy Ottinger Monica Oilman Dean Owens Brian Pace Heidi Paden Chad Parker Sails Parman Melissa Parsons Pamela Parsons Amy Partlow Amy Pashek Carol Patton Jayne Pauley Carrie Paulson David Pavlich Danelle Pedersen Shane Pedersen Kyndra Pelt Rebecca Perkins Undergraduates 275 Although alcohol is not allowed on campus, students and Resident Assistants continue to play . . .

The library was a mysterious world ol books, magazines, newspapers, micro- fiche and other references awaiting dis covery. As students browsed through these items of interest they would occa- sionally pull a hook or two from the shelves or uncover that missing piece of microfiche they were looking for. When they were through they would carelessly place it somewhere to be reshelved later. Library users knew that someone would pick up after them, so they did not think about where they placed their materials. Thejobof reshelving the books was one tlial many people probably overlooked and took advantage of without even reali - ing they were doing so. Three regular staff members and 1 student employees saw to It that library materials found their proper place after students " use. Although the staff members helped re- place materials, student employees were in charge of the majority of the reshelving. ' Shelving was not difficult. " Lisa Wakefield said. " " It w as not a job I stressed about. " " Not onl did these employees shelve books but they performed other tasks as well. Pat Parshall, who worked on the second floor of the library, was also in charge of sorting the mail, chcckins: in materials for the lloor anil r fs taking care of any claims for items thai did not come in on their correct due date. Many library shelvers worked for the Uni- versity under the work study program. Work study allowed students to work and have their salaries put towards their room, board and tuition. " The thing that 1 liked most abi)ul my job was the handling of the materials on second floor. " " Parshall said. " What I hated most was when someone would pull a years " worth of material and leave it for us to reshelve. ' " Before being allowed to work in the li- brary, each student employee went through a two week training period at the beginning of the semester. Part of this training was to prove their abilities by actually performing an example of their duties. The rest was just a matter of becoming familiar with the library and where particular books, microfiche and other reference materials were stored and located. " They got about a week ' s worth ot con- stant training, ' " Parshall said. " Then if they had any questions, they just let us know. " Although the job of the library shelvers was not always a fun one, it was a job that had to be done. As long as students continued to take the books from the shelves, the work of the library shelvers continued. -Monica Kruel Lls;i Thompson Rick Thompson Kohic Thompson Jennifer Thunnncl Michael Tiedcman Crista Tillv Dallas Timmermann Stacia Timmons Kittipon Tingpalpong Brian Tipton Miki Tokunaga Amy Tomhnson Jeftrev Tottis Jolene Trapp Ashlev Tremayne Stacy Tripp Ginni Troglin Richard Trulson Chns Tucker Daniel Turner Darrick Turner Julie Turner l-urinda Turner Jim Ulvestad Undergraduates 279 Chad Urban Becky Vacek Cory Vail Derrick Van Buren Marc Van Gorp Brooke Vance Shana Vasatka Sliawn Vehe Jolene Voris Tiffany Wade Stacy Wagers Cyndi Wagner David Wakefield Lisa Wakefield Angela Walker Lonnie Walker Marcy Walker Gail Ward Brian Wardlow Jennifer Warren Angel Washington Laura Waterman Brian Watts Kirk Wayman Karrie Weaver Jennifer Weber Natalie Weidner Denae Weiss Andrew Welch Kimberly Welch Sarah Weller Dave Wells Cathleen Welsh Kerry Wensel Michelle Werner Russell Weydert Keith Wharton Valorie Wheatley Terri Wheelhouse Theresa Whelton Brian Whitaker Jennifer Whiteing Jason Whiting Lisa Whitney Scott Wiederstein Andy Wiley Cherlyn Wilhelm Leasa Wilkerson Nicole Willey Daria Williams James Williams Marsha Williams Steven Williams Tisha Williams Donna Willis Amy Willits Carrie Wilmes Crystal Wilson Janet Wilson Jody Wilson Michelle Wilson Scott Wilson Amanda Wischmeyer Teresa Wiseman Tim Wittrock Carrie Wood Ned Wood Bobbi Woodward Am anda Wright Amy Wright Michele Wright Melissa Wyatt Mihoko Yamazoe Andrea Yonke Joe Yotti Cindy Young Robert Zaner Kelly Zimmerman Shad Zion Eric Zumwalt 280 Undergraduates He has served Northwest for 27 years and works hard to keep the campus beautiful. Bill Mendenhall shows complete . . . Imagine what it would have been like to clean a residence hall restroom. take out the trash, mop the hallways and shampoo the carpet in the lounge. This would not ha e left time to attend many classes or ha e much tun, and things probably would have gotten a little messy. Thanks to the Custodial Services and people like Bill Mendenhall, on-campus students did not have such responsibili- ties. They were able to concentrate on their classes and their social lives, know- mg that they could coun t on Mendenhall to keep their li ing space clean. Since 1966, Bill Mendenhall had been a member of the Northwest custodial fam- ily. Throughout his 27 years of service, Mendenhall became a professional at his job, earning the respect of students and faculty wherever he went. " He was dependable, he knew his job and did it well. " custodian Earl King said. " He was friendly and was alvsays there when he was needed. " Mendenhall enjoyed his work and was satisfied with his position. One reason he stayed at the Universtity so long was be- cause he enjoyed his work. " I really enjoyed the friendly campus envi- ronment, which was the reason I was here so ong, " Mendenhall said. " If you enjoyed your work, why should you leave it? " Over the years Mendenhall v orked in dif- ferent areas on campus. For the first 1 3 years he worked in the University cafeteria. Mendenhall also spent some time working in the residence halls, where he made plenty of friends. " When Mendenhall was transferred from the residence halls to Lamkin Gym many of the students were saddened by his depar- ture, " Carol Davis said. Mendenhall ' s most recent assignment was in Lamkin Gym, where he was in charge of making sure the facility was well cared for and stayed clean. He often found that students recognized his contributions to the University. They would thank him for the work he did and he knew they appreciated what he had given to the University. " Often students would tell me that I was doing a good job, " Mendenhall said. " The comments showed me that my work was strongly appreciated. " Mendenhall dedicated many years to the University family. He was well liked by both students and co-workers and did his best to uphold a professional reputation. He worked hard and enjoyed his job and was happy to make Northwest a home away from home. -Sharon Hardnett - % Sk diAA.%M Gary Bennerotte, .Special Appt. Ed. Aiiministrallon Rohcn Bohlken.

Every job had qualities about it that could have been endeari ng and at the same ti me had those qualities that were somewhat of a struggle to face every day. However, if the job was more than just a paycheck, if it had become a passionate career, then the good outweighed the bad and going to work each day became a pleasure. For Willie Adams, a TV engineer for the Mass Communication Department, the past four years of his career had proven w hat love and dedication for one ' s work could really do. ■ ' When I started I basically got thrown into everything, " Adams said. " The position I was in forced me to learn. I even took classes like television production and television direct- ing to be able to fill holes in different areas whenever I might be needed. " Adams began his career in technology as a student engineer for KXCV-FM during his undergraduate work at the University. After graduating in 88 from Northwest, he worked for a short time at Appliance and TV Mart doing house calls and repairs for televi- sion systems. In September of that same year he came to his position as TV engineer. Throughout his career, Adams had been able to see some things people in other 9 to 5 jobs might never experience. " A few years back we did something called ' Gon oTV ' , " Adams said. " We followed the format of MTV ' s " Remote Control " , and u sed University students as contestants. I thought it would have been great to try and get some- thing like that going again. " The crew of " GonzoTV " was even visited by the host of the real " Remote Control, " Ken Ober. According to Adams, Ober said he was impressed with the crew ' s initiative in pro- duction and the job done on the set construc- tion. " For one of our shows we put our set in what was the basement of The Power Sta- tion, " Adams said. " Ober was on campus for an activity of some sort and heard about the show, so he came to see our setup. " " He (Ober) went on to tell us about the first episodes of his show that didn ' t even get aired because they were so bad, " Adams said. " That was one of the most interesting things that had happened since I started. " Adams was involved in more recent ven- tures by volunteering time on KNWT ' s monthly production of " Nodaway Update " and also on the student-produced program called " Chalk Talk. " " Most of these shows I did on my own time, not only for the students ' benefit, but for mine as well, " Adams said. " Northwest was unique in that the majority of the students who attended the school were not put out by someone other than an instructor offering them advice. I learned as much from the students as they did from me. " Adams " future plans included pursuing his production interests and at some point be- coming invoked in a production house. For the time being, however, Adams was per- fectly content with staying on board at North- west. With his many years of experience and terrific attitude toward his work, students and faculty alike were happy to have Adams as their engineer. - Lisa Renze Mike Doulhat.

Not only were there three prominent candidates in the race, but the media was everywhere and some said it was at its worst. The election seemed to trigger the media especially after the vice presi- dents met for a debate in October. Independent running-mate Admiral William Stockdale missed a question because he had turned off his hearing- aid after arguments began between vice presidential candidates Dan Quayle and Al Gore, but this was just the begin- ning. Quayle, a common target throughout the race by media, was in the spotlight when he corrected a young boy on the way to spell " potato. " Quayle mistakenly said it was spelled with an " e. " A main focus on Democratic candidate Bill Clinton was his trustworthiness after he was questioned about smoking marijuana and he said that he had not inhaled and did not know how. Clinton was also questioned about an alleged extra-marital affair with Gennifer Flowers. Clinton ' s appearance on MTV and the Arsenio Hall show playing his saxophone, caught the attention of young adults and the baby-boomer candidate was supported by more college stu- dents. Independent candidate Ross Perot dropped out of the race in June leaving his supporters in the dark as to why he had left. Upon reentering the race in October, he faced skepticism. Perot was noted for spending a small portion of his billions for ad segments centered on the economy and relieving the defecit.

George Bush spent much of the election haunted by his past famous words, " read my lips, no new taxes. " Bush ' s campaign as a whole was under criti- cism as some thought that if it had been man- aged better there might have been a different election result. His campaign was mainly criticized for getting off to a slow start. The media also fo- cused on Bush ' s many vacationing adven- tures including golfing and fishing. After months of pub- lic and media criticism Clinton came out the winner and the transition began as the baby-boomer took office. While America and the world aited and watched for the changes to occur. Bush and Perot picked up -by Karissa Boney and Kathy Higdon their exposed lives and moved on. Although Bush was gone, rumors began that in 1996, Perot would be back in the race. Ro.s.s Perot discusses plans for his election campaign.

President Bill Clinton presented his long-awaited economic program to a joint session of Con- gress in his State of the Union Ad- dress on Feb. 1 7. His speech implored citizens to restore their faith in the government with the hope for a brighter future. Considered to be the best he had ever given in a national forum, Clinton ' s speech seemed to win the public ' s approval, despite proposing the second largest tax raise in history. His plan promised to reduce the S700 billion deficit by implementing S247 billion in spending cuts and $246 billion in tax hikes. One of these taxes included a surtax on the rich, hitting those YEAR OF CHANGE Clinton Addresses Nation With Economic Plan President Bill Clinton is sworn into offite on Jan. 20, 1993.

Some stu- dents, however, were still concerned with the possibility of the middle class receiving the brunt of taxes which would contradict his campaign promises. " " Clinton promised not to raise taxes on the middle class, but he already broke his promise by planning to raise taxes on everyone including the middle class, " Robbie Oehlertz said. Probably the most contros ersial pro- posed increase was the energy tax that would affect all consumers. Gasoline prices were estimated to go up 7 1 2 cents a gallon. The a erage monthl electric bill was expected to increase S2.2, ' S. The plan also called for higher in- come tax rates affecting couples and singles in the $200,000-5100,000 an- nual income range, and included tax increases in Medicare pa_ roll and So- cial Security benefits. The president also proposed that the Pentagon make $88 million cuts in the military, though Defense Secretary Les Aspin believed further -by Jane Waske cuts could be made by trimming the total man- power. Although one poll showed 62 percent of the American public supported his plan, the president ' s battle was not overyet. He also had to win the support of Congress, an even larger task. Many Congressional Republicans charged Clinton ' s plan, a direct reversal of Reagon-eco- nomics, would only hurt a slowly recovering economy. They faulted Clinton on his too few cuts, calling attention to the fact that the plan called for $4 in tax increases for every $3 in spending cuts. Clinton also proposed a contro ersial cigarette and alcohol tax that would eventually be used toward Medicare. Right-wing radio talk show host Rush Lmibaugh went so far as to bet the Democratic National Committee $1 million that by Jan. 1, 1995, inflation, unemplo ment, interest rates and the deficit would all increase as a result of Clinton ' s plan. For se eral weeks after the address, Clinton traseled the countryside trying to con ince rep- resentati es his proposal was " " necessary and fair. " UIVI Lhiitcd Missouri Bank Good people to know.

Clinton had adisapproNul of 32 percent on how he was handling his job. This was the highest negative rating of any recent president early into their administration. As soon as all of the festivities of the inauguration had ceased, Clinton lifted the abonion " gag order. " The pros i- ou-s " gag order " did not allow counselors at government- supported family clinics to mention abonion as an option for pregnant women. Whether it was the correct moral decision to lift the " gag order " was debated, but the action remained. One of Clinton ' s next steps was to end the ban on homo- sexuals in the military. Gays had been banned from the militar for fear of how other soldiers would treat gay soldiers. " It was not politically smart at all ( litiing the miliiar ban on homosexuals), " Ted Roedel said. " However, there were advantages to it as well. He had show n himself to be a man of integrity and principle. " Clinton also had troubles with his nominee for Attorney General. Zoe Baird declined the position because of a controversy around her employment of a Peru ian couple li ing illegally in the United States as her babs sitter and part-time dri er tor nearly two years. After two more tries Clinton settled on Janet Reno.

In 1992. one could buy " Sex " for $49.95 at the friendly neighborhood bookstore and the person between the covers was Madonna. Who else could sell sexuality and get away with it? Only Madonna. Just when people thought they had seen it all. she gave a little more. In her best-selling coffee table book " Sex " she gave ev- eryone a lot more and then some. " If it was anybody but Madonna it might have been offensive. " Robyn Kuster said. " People ex- pected this from Ma- donna. She was willing to express herself and take it a step further-maybe two or three. " Most of the controversy around " Sex " was the sexuall) explicit photo- graphs and erotic text, which. Madonna stated in the prologue to the book, were all fantasy. " I thought it was disgust- ing, " Adam Crump said. " I wouldn ' t pay 50 bucks to see Madonna naked. " While most of the nation looked on with disgust, " Sex " rose to the top of the New York Times Best Sell- ers List. " A lot of people probably had fantasies like that, " Jen- nifer Deardorff said. " Ma- donna was the only one bra e enough to talk about it in a book. " A great deal of the contro- versy stemmed trom the fact that a large portion of the book dealt with the theme of homosexuality. While gays and lesbians were nothing new. this was the first time mainstream society was exposed to a major celebrits dealing with the topic. " I thought it was cool that Madonna did this. " Deardorff said. " It ac- knowledged the fact that homosexuals were out there. It was about lime someone did something for them. " Besides the explicit photos and " dirty letters " written by Madonna ' s al- ter-ego Dita, the con- struction of the limited edition book also raised problems of its ow n. The large metal spiral binding and cover gave many owners problems. Warner books later re- voked the " no-return " policy on the book to ac- commodate those books whose cover had fallen off.

Their destination: So- malia, a nation in the horn of Africa devastated by mass starvation, clan warfare and poverty. The soldier ' s purpose: pacification. Conflict was nothing new to Soma- lia. For two years prior to United States " intervention, the region struggled in a state of anarchy while rebel leaders fought for power, de- stroying the lives of their own people. Food and water, basic medical care and shelter were kept out of reach for most of the Somalians. Denied humanity, Somali civilians died at a rate of 1 ,000 per day. Warlords General Mohammed Fairah Aidid and AH Mahdi Mohammed had not spoken in more than a year. Each clan fought and stole trying to keep as much power under them. Food was the key to this power. Not until terrifying images appeared on Ameri- cans " televisions of skeletal women, men and children clad only in scraps of cloth did the United States react. In his last few weeks in office. President George Bush gave the go-ahead for Operation Restore Hope to help the people of Somalia, calling it an " experiment in World Order. " Originally, United States troops were to ensure safe food distribution, which some officials ex- pected to last no more than a month. As the days grew into weeks, the United States " purpose expanded to include disarming snipers armed with rifles and mortars. Weeks turned into months and the mission grew asain to include LENDING A HAND FAMINE IN SOMALIA TOUCHES WORLD -by Kathy Higdon and Jane Waske road building and the provision of medical care. Although the Somalis were fed and the fighting was stopped, there were still problems left un- solved. Despite the millions who had succumbed to malnutrition, overpopulation threatened the nation. In order to get the nation undergoing a transfor- mation. General Aidid and his rival, Mohammed, met at a United States liaison office and agreed to a cease-fire. The warloads ordered their fighters to lea e the capital and to stop stealing food. Although the agreement came, Somalians still dealt with starvation and people dying everyday. Northwest students were affected as they watched television and saw the starving children. " 1 felt sosoiTy for the children, ' " Roy Bolarsaid. " Although 1 was glad to see the cease-fire, I still wondered when the food would be passed around freely and the people would be nourished. It was a good sign that the w arloads agreed to stop the fights. " " Due to this, by mid-February, Operation Re- store Hope was deemed a success and the United States pull-out began.

Rumors and tragedy had brought the royal family under scrutiny once again not only for scandal but also rocky marriages and a burning castle. Tabloids had been criticizing Sarah Ferguson since the day they found out that she would be the Duchess of York. The rumors increased and news finally spread saying the marriage had turned rocky. The Duke and Duch- ess of York finally of- ficially separated. Ac- cording to Newsweek it was because Sarah did not adapt well to the restrictions of royal life and because a friendship with an American bachelor had offended Andrew. Later pictures of the Duchess and another man were seen in tab- loids across the world. The royalty caused more skepticism in August when, an ille- gally taped telephone conversation that was supposedly between Princess Diana and an admirer, whom she had called " Squidgy. " was released. Some, did feel sorry for the Princess. " I felt sorry for her, " Becky Vacek said. " I didn ' t knov if the tab- loids were telling the truth or not. " Rumors also surged across England about a conspiracy among Prince Charles ' friends, the British se- curity service and maybe even the palace establishment to dis- credit the Princess. Diana was confronted months before the tape was actually released and was asked about the existence of the tape. Confused, Diana asked the royal house- hold about the tape and its existence was then confirmed. In December, Prime Minister John Major announced to Parlia- ment that the royal couple had offically separated. Their sepa- ration had many won- dering about the future of the kingdom ' s throne. If a divorce did occur could Charles still be crowned king- a job that included be- ing the Supreme Gov- ernor of the Church of England?

Others, said he should have renounced his rights to the throne for his oldest son Prince William. Charles was also ridiculed after an al- leged affair was re- vealed. A tape record- ing was released con- taining sexual and love chit-chat between Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. To add to the many problems and confu- sion in London, the Windsor Castle caught on fire in late November. Although there w as no devastat- ing damage done, there was water dam- age to the castle.

There s as no left over w reckage to show that just two years ago Baghdad had been the target for allied bombers during Desert .Storm. War, reconstruction and more war had been Iraq ' s cycle under Saddam Hussein for more than 12 years and despite some sudden Iraqi peace over- tures to Bill Clinton, it seemed likely to continue. Karl Jont said he could not belie e that after the Gulf War had ended, the United Slates still had to contend u ith Hussein. " It was incredible that we still had to deal v ith the man after we defeated the Iraqis in the gulf u ar. " Jont said. " " That w as tw o years ago. We should ha e taken him out of power. It was men like Saddam and Hitler who caused real grief to the wiirld. " ()nl hours after Clinton took office, and al- most two years to the day of Desert Storm, skirmishing broke out again. In the northern ■•iK -n ' " one. United States and allied aircraft attacked Iraqi anti-aircraft positions after Iraqis turned on their fire-control radar. Baghdad claimed it had done ni thing to warrant the first attack and stated it did not have an anti-aircraft battery at the site of the second attack. The skirmishing continued with more attacks on U.S. fighter jets, this time in the southern " no- tly " one. Joan Hay den said she thought that the w ar v ith Iraq should have ended two years ago with Operation Desert Storm. ■ " We won and yet, it did not feel like a victory, " Hayden said.

NO ' FLY ZONE IRAQIS TAKE HOSTILE MEASURES -bv Kim Todd we would not ha e had any more trouble with Iraq. " Coalitions of exile opposition grt)ups had been falling apart and Hussein ' s men were con- fident that quasi-independent Kurdistan _ would collapse if the ' " no-tly " rule was lifted. His troops were positioned to take the enclave by force if they had been given the chance. Scattered rebels in the south had not capitalized on the air cover thev had. Most Iraqis feared that if the rebels acted the civil war that would come would be worse than Hussein ' s dictator- ship. Allison Todd said she thought the U.N. should have intervened to oust Hussein trom power. " I thought it was ridiculous we did not take Saddam out of power when we had the chance. " Todd said. In the tirst minutes of Clinton ' s presi- dency, Iraq officially declared a unilateral cea.se-fire. United Nations inspectors who had been long-delayed were welcomed with unprec- edented hospitality. According to A ' cir.vucc .. one senior official in Baghdad said Iraq might have wanted to do business w ith the rest of the world, but ultimately had no intention of bend- ing to the demands of the United Nations, the United States or anyone else.

It seemed the nightmare never ended for Rodney King as another trial began and his name was once again in the media. King and Los Angeles Sgt. Stacey Koon, police officers Laurence Powell. Theodore Briseno and Timoth y Wind found themselves back in court. However, this time in downtown Los Angeles with a jury comprised of two blacks, one hispanic and nine whites in- stead of the previous all-white jury. The officers faced federal charges against King ' s civil rights. If con- victed the officers could have faced a 10-year prison sentence. This second trial began on Feb. 25. It had been delayed because of juror deceit and the possibility of a lawyer ' s conflict of interest. Opening statements finally began bringing new evidence and ques- tions. Prosecution alleged that after police severely beat King they took him back to the police station to show him off to two other officers rather than taking him to a hospital. According to USA Today. Koon said that King was taken to the sta- tion for " completely proper booking procedures. " The problems began on March 3, 1991, when an amatuer-filmed Cult Stand Off Four federal agents were killed in a shootout with a religious band 10 miles outside of Waco, Texas on Feb. 28. The agents were attempting to serve a search warrant concerning armed weapons that were in their possesion. The cult. Branch Davidians, was housed in a 77-acre compound that held 75 to 80 members. Vernon Howell, the leader, claimed he was Jesus Christ. Fifteen agents were wounded when over 100 Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms officers tried to arrest Howell. Among the cult members, one was killed, one was captured and one retreated into the compound. According to The Kansas Cin Star, Howell did an interview with CNN and claimed that the police fired first. He also said that he had " lots of babies " coming from his many wives and he didn ' t want them to be harmed. The cult be- lieved in " free sex " and unlimited amount of wives.

Weeks after the incident, the tape was shown on TV and Americans flinched as they watched the cover- age. In most people ' s minds, there was no question that the officers would be convicted in court, but an acquittal came on April 29 and vio- lence erupted in the streets of Los Angeles. " I thought that it was really sad that it resulted in such violence. " Monica Leach said. " I wasn ' t sur- prised though, because there .seemed to be strong racism in soci- eties. " The rioting left 55 dead, most of whom were black, 2.300 injured, 11,700 arrests, more than 3,100 buildings ravaged and $7 1 7 million in damages. Los Angeles was de- clared a national disaster area by former President George Bush. In October, the Los Angeles riots affected Mary ville residents beyond just emotionally when Bearcat foot- ball players Stacey Ford and Anto- nio Sparrow were suspended for passing a stolen money order at the local Hy-Vee grocery store. The money order was allegedly con- nected with the Los Angeles riots. Northwest students were also ef- fected on a positive note by the riot- ing when students were invited to a silent protest held by the Alliance of Black Collegians. The protest was not to show students in opposition, but to show their concern as future leaders of the United States. Alliance of Black Collegians President Sharon Hardnett said the focus was to help recognize racism. As students left, Hardnett ' s closing statement was in their minds.

This time the camps were not in Germany, but in Bosnia, Yugoslavia and had detained and killed religious members of Muslims and Croats. The fundanienlal objective of the war was Serbian " ethnic cleansing " of large sections of Bosnian territory and the expelling of Muslims and Croats so that Serbs could move in. The Yugoslavian territory had been the battle ground for Austro-Hungarians and the the country was named Yugoslavia. The Croats Ottoman Empire. In 1918, the areas of Serbs, had always opposed the domination of Serbians. CONFLICT CAUSES COUNTRY TO DIVIDE Croats and Slovenes were declared and in 1 929 Yusoslavian women mourn the death of a loved one. TheYugoslavian break up brought back con- centration camp.s and the death toll raged with thousands of fatalities. Photo by Associated Press. Time magazine reported that Bosnian officials said that Serbs ran at least lO.S camps, through which 26U,00U people passed and approximately 17,000 had died. At least 130.000 remained incarcer- ated. A Bosnian repc)rt told of the Vuk Karadzic primary school in Bratunac, where Serbs were accused of bleeding . ' iOO Muslims to death, so wounded Serbs could receive transfusions. Serbs denied the sto- ries and said that Muslims and Croats ran 40 camps of their own where over 6,000 Serbs died. " It was time for the United States to do something about this crisis, " Rhonda Crocker said. There was no simple solution. United Nation peacekeepers tried economic sanc- tions and mediation withiait ending the fighting. " The United States needed to get in- volved in the events in Bosnia. " Crocker said. " They got involved in other problems -by Prem Balasubramaniam and Jason Hoke aroimd the world so why not this one? " Bosnia did not fit into the categories that de- manded intervention. No communist domains were at stake. According to Time magazine hu- man-right violations were gruesome, but coun- tries did not want to sacrifice their soldiers for this. The war in Yugosla ' ia left thousands dead and millions in detention camps. People who stayed were faced with daily shelling and sniper fire. During a rare cease-fire, inhabitants rushed to get bread and other necessities. The death of President Josip Broz Tito in 1 980 left the country ' s power divided between the different republics. Of the 24 million people of Yugoslavia. .36 percent were Serbs. 30 percent Croats and Albanians comprised 9 percent of the country. Ethnic diversity had been the source of conflict for years. " It was better for them to be separate states, instead of killing each other. " Tom Miller said. Where there had been one country, a di ision had occurred due to religious wars. Bosnia- Hertzagovnia claimed one side of the divided province and Serbia the other. Everything for your remodeling and i construction needs. %r }j i jHi - J - ' ' Drake Building Supply Center, Inc.

MARYVILLE, MO An Equal Opportunity Employer National News 299 NATIONAL NEWS New Research Brings AIDS Discoveries Second-year Harvard University medical stu- dent Yung-Kang Chow discovered a possible vaccine for the AIDS virus. The new vaccine contained AZT and dideoxyinosine, two drugs commonly used to treat AIDS patients and a third drug called pyridinone. Research on the effects of the drugs was done on test tubes of blood in the laboratory and the drugs effectively stopped the spread and even killed the existing infection. Chow ' s vaccine worked to prevent the virus from reproducing, which kept it from infecting new cells. No experimentation had been done on animals or humans, but other researchers had gotten the same results as Chow. Human testing of the drugs would be the next step in stopping the virus and it would be done on people with advanced cases of AIDS. ■ ' Anyone with AIDS should be allowed to use it as long as they signed a release form, " Lydia Irwin said. According to the Associated Press, Chow warned people that this was not a cure. Since it had not been proven to work he worried that people might place too much hope in the drug. Chow was not the only person with misgivings about the perception of the discovery. Several people said that a cure might make people forget what they had learned about AIDS and safe sex. Chow got the idea for the vaccine while review- ing a grant application in August 1991 . The idea of a combined drug vaccine was unusual and he received much praise for his discovery. -by Elizabeth Brown Dr. Death Assists in Suicide Known as " Dr. Death.

By Feb. 19, Kevorkian assisted in the suicide-deaths of 15 patients, defying the state law banning doc- tor-assisted suicide that would go into ef- fect on March 30. Kevorkian and his supporters claimed the suicides were to take those in pain out of their misery. Most of Kevorkian ' s suicide patients contacted him because they were ill with cancer or some other terminal disease. Mimi Arts thought Kevorkian was wrong. " Suicide was some- thing different than dying or than letting a person live, " Arts said. " Research could help people live. Suicide was just a cop-out to Hving and dealing with problems. " On Feb. 25 law offi- cials tried to stop Kevorkian after re- ceiving a document that said a patient changed his mind at the last minute but was still assisted in suicide. His death was being in- vestigated as a homocide. Michigan ' s governor signed a law immediately enforcing a ban on doctor-as- sisted suicide.

" Obituaries 301 NATIONAL NEWS I resident Bill Clinton reversed his stand on the Haitian refugee prob- lem in January, causing outrage with anti-repatriation supporters and dis- may by the United Nation ' s High Commissioner. The U.N. ' s High Commissioner for Refugees had drafted an ambitious plan in December for countries throughout the western hemisphere to grant temporary asykmi to Haitians. The High Commissioner was using President-elect Bill Clinton ' s cam- paign promise to " " stop the forced re- patriation of Haitian refugees, " as United States immigration officials made plans to carry out Clinton ' s policy. The immigration service began making plans to abandon the policy established on May 24 by President George Bush shortly after the elec- REFUGE HAITIANS REQUEST ASYLUM IN UNITED STATES Hatian refugees request asylum at the U.S. naval base at Guatanamo Bay, Cuba. Photo by Associated Press. tions. Bush ' s policy had ordered that Haitians intercepted on the high seas be returned directly to Haiti. Over 5,000 Haitians had been sent back to Haiti without assessment of their assertions of persecutions, since Bush ' s order was effective. The number of Haitians fleeing from oppres- sion in their country since democratic ally -elec ted president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide had been forcibly ousted in a military coup in September 1991. Accord- ing to the New York Times, Miami Coast Guard offi- cials said, the increase of Haitians wasaresult of the " rumors of an imminent change in United States policy. " Many Haitians told officials that they had heard " Clinton was presi- dent and was welcoming Haitians with open arms. " Clinton ' s change of policy came Jan. 15, and for advocates of Haitian refugees the announcement to continue the Bush administration policy was a betrayal. In a message addressed to Haitians and -by Kim Todd Haitian-Americans, Clinton said the policy deci- sion was driven by concern for people drowning at sea. Haitian-supporters saw his decision as a victory of the " " professional bureaucracy " which had shaped and defended Bush ' s approach to the situation. Clinton aides said the new administration faced the real possibility of a big new exodus to south Florida and the prospect of " ' 50,000 to 100,000 Haitians seeking to come here in the next few weeks, " and had been forced to take the action because " there was no other policy or plan di- rectly in place to deal with the issue. " Clinton ' s pre-election tolerance had prompted Haitians to build 1,000 boats that could accommodate as many as 150,000 people, most of whom were poised to set sail the moment Clinton was inaugurated. In November 1992, a boat crammed with fleeing Haitians sank off the Miami coast, killing hundreds. In an announcement Clinton said, " " Those who leave Haiti by boat for the United States will be intercepted and returned by the U.S. Coast Guard. " The United States and Clinton had conse- quently blocked the refugee route and perhaps he said it best during his radio broadcast, " " Leaving by boat is not the route to freedom. " Roger J.

Index 315 Editor ' s ] ote As I sat down to write this letter the past four years ran through my head. This is finally it. The " 93 Tower is done and I can now put the last of four yearbooks on my shelf. And all I can think is " What on earth am I going to do with all that free time? " Its a scary thought. Little did I know that when I wandered into my first Tower meeting as a freshman this book would become the most important thing in my college career. Because of this book 1 know w hat its like to work as a team, to strive for excellence and to be proud of what I accomplish. And most of all I made the best friends I have ever had. I probably would not have stayed on Tower for the long haul if it weren ' t for the staff of the 1 990 book. Although I was just a silly freshman, they took me in, showed me the ropes and became my best friends. Thanks euys. I used every hit if knowledge you gave me. Every book taught me something different and has its own memories. Thank you to Cara Dahlor, Teresa Mattson and Stephanie Frey, the editors of those books. You taught me well. But this was a new year. It was the year we decided to say " to hell with the old " and did something new. Not only did we cut a hole in the cover, produce an audio tape and add advertis- ing, we did it all with style. Things were not always " easier said than done, " but we were a team. We are incredible! And I thank each and every one of you for helping make my dream of a pert ' ect year become a reality. You guys are the best. Karissa- If anybody said " to hell w ith the old " it was you. Not only were you the youngest managing editor in Tower history, in my opin- ion, you were the best. Nothing slipped by you. It seemed that whenever I went to ask you to do something, you were already doing it. I can sum it all up in four words- you were always there. And for that you will always be one of my dearest friends. Thank you. Melinda- Boy, do we have our share of stories to tell. Whenever I eat a Blizzard Til think of you. Many times you were my saving grace this year. With such a young staff it was good to have someone who remembered " the old days. " You helped out in every area when ever you were needed and I knew if you were in charge of something I had nothing to worry about. I know you made a lot of sacrifices to be on this editorial board and for that I thank you.

The Student Lite stories are more in depth than they ever ha e been and the people stories detinitely give you a sense ot " what North- west is like. Who knows. 1 might even tattoo your name on my back, butev en it I don " t. thanks for everything. l- " ay- You took on a job that has driven many people cra y. but you handled it w ith ease. The sports stories are very thorough and capture the seasons well. You are the most organized sports editor I have ever worked with and tor once I did not dread reading those stories. Also, thanks for your brutal honesty. It takes a special person to admit thev fell in Coiden Pond and besides, you got a life jacket out of the deal. Kate- Oh. Katemeister, where shall I start. ou remind me so much of myself as a freshman its scary. No. really it is. You dove right in to your responsibilities and saved our butts many times by taking on stories at the last minute and making us laugh when there was nothing to laugh about. Your shacker reports were the best. And don " t think Tmnotgoing togetaying-yang tattoo just like yours, because I am. lennifer M.- Some of us might have starved had It not been tor your generous food donations. Next time you feel like ordering a couple of large pi zas. give me a call. You took on a huge responsibility your freshman vear. Being re- sponsible for I . " O groups is no easy task, but you vv illingly took it on. Thanks for your patience. Kathy- For once we didn ' t have to write bookoo mini mag stories all in one weekend. You didn ' t miss a thing, you little news hound you. and when the mini mag deadline rolled ariuind all the stories vsere finished and ready tor production. Thank you for being so responsible. It was great working with you. Angela- Well the final deadline has come and gone and I don ' t see a ring on that pretty finger otv ours. That ' s okay though. I ' m sure you " II just dismiss the whole thing with a fake laugh and before vou know it you ' ll be laughing for real. Well, you did it lady. This book is beautiful. The designs are fresh and they really grab your atten- tion. There is no gray in this book, moonshine and the sharpness of each layout shows. Thank you. Dennis- Your color-coordinated newsletters made each issue seem special. Even cotton white seemed like a brand new color. Thanks for v oiii vMllingness to do tasks that mav not have been verv glamonuis, I sweai it will all pav off. ou brought this hook so manv new ideas, ' ou alwav s had something tii contribute and for that I thank VDU.

Jon and Tonv- We did it ' Who ever said photographers were hard to get along with obv i- ouslv never worked with you guys. I never had to worrv about whether or not vou tv o would make tieadlines because vou always did. There are photos in this book that would make .Ansel Adams jealous. Thanks for all the hard work. Jon. next time I get a feeling about something Til give you a call. And Tonv . thanks for dropping everything, (get it?) for a bit of humor. Scott- Thanks for the sports photos and for filling in when you could. I ' ll never forget Larry the chicken. Take care of him for me, will you? Jenny, Dave. Daw n and Russ- With the speed you guys print pictures you should all work for One-Hour Photo. I " ve never seen such quality prints in such a short amount of time. Jenny- thanks for your willingness to help us out up front w hen we needed you and also for scraping the ice off E y. Dave- thanks for helping Jon and Tonv shoot and for your wisdom on plan- ning weddings. Dawn- thanks t " or your patience and for showing me that spots can be removed from negatives. And Russ. thanks for staying in the darkroom for countless hours, even without music. Next time I see peeling plaster of paris or a gross of canned air, I ' ll think of you. Laura- Through these last fouryears you were the one person who was always there for me. Even though it did take me all fouryears to learn to take medicine and vitamins when I ' m sick, wear a coat when its cold and not skip class, I finally learned. The things you have taught me go far beyond bundling up in the winter. I w ill always remember your bits of wisdom and your unselfish attitude about life. You have been my teacher, my adviser and my psychologist, but most of all you have been the best friend I have ever had. And for that Laura. I thank vou. Of course I would not be writing this letter if it were not for my family. I know the visits were few and the bills were outrageous, but I promise it was all worth it. Mom and Dad- you always understood when I slept through breaks and never hesitated to bail me out of a financial bind. ' oii always taught me to believe in myself and follow my heart. Thanks tor always understand- ing and for listening. I love you. And so with all my thank you ' s in order I ' ll sign off now . These four years have definitelv been " easier said than done. " but I would not have changed a thing. Allison Edwards Editor in Chief RJ[ RJ[ RJPJEJ[?
