1323. CiUpOWW The 1979 Potpourri Northwestern State University Natchitoches, Louisiana From the Editor ' s Desk When I was named editor of the Pot- pourri last spring. I was excited about the prospects for the 1979 book The 1978 staff had produced an award-winning book and I felt we had the experience to do it again The 1978 staff was fortunate to have a sizeable kitty left from 1977 for publication expenses It enabled the 78 staff to try many technical innovations that had never been used in the Potpourri before To continue that progress. I knew we needed more money for 1 979 Due to con- tinua lly soaring publication costs, the $10 fee .vas no longer sufficient I approached the SGA about a fee increase during the spring of 1978 and the response was extremely favorable The group passed a bill to allow a student vote on the proposi- tion Not being a politician, I guess I didn ' t work hard enough to win such an election When I learned the increase failed by an unbelievably close six votes, I knew it was indeed my fault And because of that mis- take. I felt the 1979 book would suffer terri- bly Don t get me wrong 1 This is not an apol- ogy or an excuse The staff of 1 979 did an outstanding job Yes, we had to cut cor- ners, but I think we produced a book that is technically sound This book is interesting and pleasing to leaf through I am so very proud of the people on the staff They all spent many, many hours developing new ideas that wouldn ' t destroy our budget I am grateful to these people for their dedi- cation, interest, and loyalty. Now we are looking forward to 1980 The fee increase that was passed m the fall of 1 978 will take effect in the upcoming fall semester It will allow the new staff to take many liberties I hope they take full advan- tage of the many opportunities available to them I wish them the best In the meantime, I ' d like to thank North- western for the opportunity to work in such a fine school community. I would also like to thank everyone involved in the produc- tion of this book for their time and efforts I think the general student public will agree that the 1979 Potpourri is the product of much time and hard work Personally, I beUeve this book is a fine way to close another decade. I hope you enjoy looking through it as much as we enjoyed putting it together. It was indeed a pleasurable task Sincerely. Michael W.

Jr [JOEjn Administration Administration President Bienvenu Completes First Year in Office Northwestern has undergone many changes under the leadership of its new President, Dr. Rene J Bienvenu. President Bienvenu, working with the Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. T P. Southerland, initiated a plan to improve academic standards at the university. Dr. Bienvenu was a faculty member at NSU for twenty-seven years before serving a short term as assistant dean of the School of Allied Health at the LSU Medical Center in Shreveport. President Bienvenu served as assist- ant professor at NSU from 1950 to 1958, and was associate professor from 1958 to 1962. From 1962 until July of 1977, Dr. Bienvenu was a pro- fessor of microbiology. Dr. Bienvenu was then named the dean of Science and Technology and he served the university in that capacity until he accepted the position at LSU Medical School in Shreveport. President Bienvenu holds a B.S. degree in zoology-chemistry and obtained a M.S. degree in bacteriology from LSU. Dr. Bienvenu acquired his Ph.D. in microbiology from the Univer- sity of Texas. President Bienvenu, considered a student-oriented president, showed true concern for the NSU students and spent much of his time talking with stu- dents trying to discover and meet their needs. At the end of President Bien- venu ' s first year in office, he has already achieved many of his goals. Top Right President and Mrs Rene Bienvenu.

" Administration 21 New Presidential Regime Brings About Under the new Presidential regime, major changes were made concerning the vice-presidential positions. The num- ber of vice-presidents was cut trom four to two, the Vice-President of Academic Affairs and the Vice-President of Univer- sity Affairs. Vice-President of Academic Affairs Dr. T. P. Southerland Dr. Tom Paul Southerland, former Dean of the Graduate school, began serving the university as Vice-President of Academic Affairs on July 1, 1978. Dr. Southerland ' s main goal throughout this year was to improve and develop the aca- demic quality at NSU, thereby improving its public image. Vice- President Southerland also was responsible for working with aca- demic deans, and supervising poli- cies on tenure, leave, and promo- tion.

Administration Reorganization of Vice-Presidents Vice-President of University Affairs Dr. Bennie Barron Vice President of University Affairs, Dr. Bennie Barron com- pleted his first year in office. Dr. Barron began serving the university as Vice President of University Affairs on July 1 , 1978. Prior to his appointment as vice president, Dr. Barron was the department head of General Studies.

Administration 23 University Administration Undergoes Big Changes Under the leadership of our newly appointed President, Dr. Rene Bien- venu, NSU has made some much needed cha nges and has taken on a new " look. " One of the big changes President Bienvenu has made since taking office is to reor- ganize university administration. One of the changes made was a cut-back in the number of adminis- trative positions. Many of the posi- tions were renamed for a clearer understanding of their responsibili- ties. A number of new faces, along with the many familiar faces, were working hard to follow through with Dr. Bienvenu ' s plan toward higher academic standards at NSU. Right: Cecil Knotts.

The College of Liberal Arts offered curriculum choices in the areas of Art, Lan- guages, Military Science, Music, Social Science, Sociology and Social Work, and Speech and Journalism.

The Demons played perhaps their toughest schedule ever, taking the field against nine major college opponents, including the University of Louis ville. It was a Jekyll-Hyde season for the Demons. NSU opened the season with three straight wins, a feat they hadn ' t accomplished since 1973. The undefeated mark was good enough to earn the Demons a No. 7 ranking in the NCAA Division l-AA poll. The glory was short-lived, though, as they met a then-undefeated Northeast Louisiana University team in Monroe and were soundly routed by an emotional Indian squad. That game was the first of four straight road games for the Demons and the first of four losses in a row. The Demons bounced back the following week largely because of the efforts of tailback Joe Delaney and fullback Brett Knecht. The squad then lost two of the last three games of the season, including a last second heart-breaker to the Uni- versity of Southwestern Louisiana. The Demons closed the season with a road record of 1-5 to continue their recent problems on the road. Since 1974, Northwestern has won only six games on the road. The Northwestern home record is much more impressive. The Demons won four of five games in Turpin Stadium for the third straight year to bring their overall record on the turf to 12-3, a winning percentage of .800. It ' s too bad we can ' t play them all at home. Right NSU Coaching Staff — Row 1 head coach A. L. Williams.

Northwestern ' s 43rd State Fair trip to meet the Bulldogs of Loui- siana Tech again proved futile as the Dogs handed the Demons a crushing 45-20 defeat before 21,000 fans. The Demon loss extended Tech ' s winning streak in the fair game to eight. It was the i fourth straight loss of the season for Northwestern, all on the road. The Demons were never really in the ballgame as Tech breezed to an overwhelming 45-0 lead by the end of the third period. Tech ' s offensive stats were not that impressive as the Dogs man- aged only 253 yards against the Demon defense. The highly touted Tech defense did most of the damage, holding NSU to only 1 35 total yards, forcing five turnovers, and blocking a punt.

Waters April 16, 1957-November26, 1978 On November 18, 1978 wide receiver Wyamond Waters and bas- ketball center Frederick Piper were involved in a tragic one-car acci- dent, the same day on which Wya- mond was to play his last football game in a Northwestern uniform. Wyamond died eight days later in an Alexandria, Louisiana hospital of injuries sustained in that accident. The accident cut short a brilliant career of a fine football player and a fine man. Wyamond ' s career statis- tics were indeed impressive He fin- ished third on N.S.U s all-time pass receiver ' s list with 79 catches and second all-time in yardage receiv- ing by gaining 1.538 yards in four seasons Wyamond s record for best average gam per catch (26.8 yds. catch) that he set as a fresh- man still stands. On the night of November 18, the Demons took the field against Southeastern Louisi- ana, determined to win the game for Wyamond. After falling behind 12-0 by halftime, the Demon defense came on strong in the second half to contain the Lions, while the offense scored 13 points to win the game. After the game, the football team unanimously voted the then hospitalized Wyamond the game ball He deserved it. He deserved many honors, many accolades, and much praise. Words are not enough, though.

Haughton Undergraduates A Look at NSU This is the University. This is the place where many friendships have been made, the place where many great lessons have been learned, the place where students encountered new experiences and a new way of life. And so it was. This is the place where we leave a part of our lives that can never be recaptured except in thought, a place of involvement and learning; of trials and tribulations; of happiness and success. And so it is. This is the place where the roots of Northwestern State University hold firmly to carry on symbols of intellect and culture, making NSU students proud that Northwestern has become a part of their lives. And so it will be. The University Pep rallies at NSU were an exciting part of the football season. Many groups got involved in the activities, the band played to liven up the spirit, and the greeks ran around waving their flags and cheering.
