5Wj r bration Of A Century ■ HMB 1 i h K X m ' POTPOURRI Northwestern State University Natchitoches, Louisiana Symbolic of the early history of Northwestern are the four (now three) white columns which stood at the front of Bullard Mansion. Bullard Mansion was also the home of NSU ' s famous ghost, Isabella. The remaining three columns have become a symbol of the tradi- tions of Northwestern for the past 100 years. " Celebration of a Century m Centennial Compiled Edited by Carla Erickson In 1714, St. Denis built a fort on the present grounds of North- western State. This fort was the first established settlement in the Loui- siana Purchase. It took its name from a local tribe of Indians, the Natchitoches. As the town became a thriving community, the quest for education grew. The Society of Sacred Heart then came to establish a school. In 1856, they bought Bullard Mansion, owned by Charles A. Bullard, at a cost of $42,000. Included in the pur- chase were the mansion and 107 acres of land. For several years the convent flourished by attaining an enrollment of 300 boarders. However, with the onset of the Civil War, the school was abandoned in 1875. After the Civil War better educa- tion became the key to earning a good living. The Louisiana General Assembly passed a bill on October 6, 1884, establishing the Louisiana State Normal School to train persons of either sex who desired to teach in the state ' s public schools. Then the question arose as to where the school would be erected. State Repre- sentative, Captain Caspari, helped Natchitoches to be selected over such places as Homer, Shreveport, Alexandria, and New Orleans. In December of 1884, Dr. Edward Sheib was named president of the school where he faced " the almost in- surmountable problems of creating a school out of a wilderness. " He later wrote that the Normal School opened in November of 1885, in a " half-ruined building surrounded by a wilderness of thorns and trees . . . without desks, without benches, without books and blackboards, with rain pouring through the broken roof, and the wind sweeping through halls that could not be closed. " For the first term sixty students were enrolled in the two year program, and the school was able to secure three faculty members, who helped develop the curriculum. After three years, President Sheib resigned, yet because of his unceas- ing labors, the school had a foundation. In 1888, Thomas D. Boyd picked up where President Sheib left off by becoming Normal ' s second presi- 1mm? dent. He was able to continue the ex- cellent work that had been started. During his term, he extended the course study to four years. He also tried to add industrial courses to the curriculum, a project which was un- successful. His reason for this endeavor was to prevent the establishment of an industrial in- stitute at Ruston (Louisiana Tech) which he felt would be a " perpetual menace " to the Normal. In July of 1896, Boyd left the Normal to become the president of Louisiana State University. D uring the 1890s, the Normal of- fered many benefits to the students. Tuition was free for students who promised to teach at least one year in Louisiana schools. And the State Normal offered boarding facilities for young ladies at the cost of $12 to $15 a month which included room, board, and laundry. If there was not enough space available, ladies and all men lived in approved boarding houses in town. For these students, studies were important, yet they did have a social life. Literary societies helped to pro- vide some entertainment. The two that formed during President Boyd ' s term were Seekers After Knowledge and Eclectric Literary Society. These groups grew in importance and later provided the school colors — purple and white. From 1896 to 1908, Beverly C. Caldwell served as president. Presi- dent Caldwell instituted school pro- grams, intensified the expansion of the facilities, im proved student housing, and modified the cur- riculum. Four new buildings were built. Main Hall (Caldwell Hall) was the first brick structure on campus. Normal ' s heating and lighting systems were improved by the in- troduction of steam heat and electric lights which replaced the old, open fireplaces, wood burning stoves and oil lamps. President Caldwell also in- troduced an elective system, new courses, and a summer term. Upon President Caldwell ' s resignation, James B. Aswell was elected. During his three year tenure, he instituted a quarter system and raised graduation re- quirements. Also, additional literary societies were established, the POTPOURRI was first published in 1909, religious organizations came into being, and a Normal band was organized in 1911. Sports also began to play an important part in student life. Normal ' s enrollment had in- creased to 1,863 when President Aswell resigned in 1911 to run for governor. Ill " Celebration of a Century " 1884-1920 Bullard Mansion was erected overlooking cane river. -1832 Normal ' s dormitories did not have bathtubs, showers, or electricity. — 1885 The first library was completed with 1500 volumes. 1886 The Science and Art of Teaching and the Practice School were the only departments at the Normal School. — 1890 Bullard Mansion and Caldwell Hall appeared together in a rare photograph. The Normal Camera Club prepared to take pictures. The next president was Victor L. Roy, who served the Normal for eighteen years. In 1918, the school began granting Bachelor degrees, and in 1921, the school changed its name to Louisiana State Normal Col- lege. The College also gained regional and national recognition as being the South ' s leading teacher training institute. In 1926 the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools accredited the Normal because it possessed strong educational qualities. Some of these qualities were brought about during Presi- dent Roy ' s tenure. For example, he i began correspondence courses and (an extension division, inaugurated a point system, and raised the stan- dards for the faculty. Three hundred acres and several new buildings were added under his guidance. Despite his outstanding achievements, President Roy is best known for his strict discipline and opposition to the new social mores of the 1920s. Feeling that he must counteract " the loose tendencies of these reckless, post-bellum days, " President Roy tried to prevent the girls from bobbing their hair by threatening to dismiss them. He also was opposed to the use of cosmetics. Even Coca Cola was forbidden on the campus until 1925. In reference to relationships with the opposite sex, students had many restrictions. Students could not m ingle at literary society ' s meetings, lyceum entertainments, Friday night movies, and walks to and from church services. President Roy sometimes would even flip on the lights during a movie to check for improper behavior. He also checked the length of girls ' hemlines before they left for town. Yet through all these regulations the students had fun. The CUR- RENT SAUCE began publication, and fraternities and sororities ap- peared during the late twenties. In addition, an honor system and a stu- dent government association were developed. Despite the wonderful growth of the school, President Roy was forced to resign because ol pressure from the newly elected governor, Huev P. Long " Celebration of a Century N State Normal School President Roy was fortunate in one respect, in that he did not have to see the Normal during the Great Depression, for his resignation came four months before the Stockmarket Crash of 1929. Yet the Normal en- dured with the help of William W. Tison and Albert A. Fredericks. President Tison directed the col- lege from 1929-1934. During his term only one building was erected — the men ' s gymnasium. Curricula also were modified and strength- ened, new departments and pro- grams were installed, and the first national honor society was introduc- ed on campus. Though the ad- ministration was good, Governor Long replaced President Tison with Albert Fredericks, a man who had served Louisiana State Normal for a number of years as a faculty member. President Fredericks had the rare distinction in that he served as state senator from the twenty-fourth district while being president of LSNC. Because of his political con- nections, he was able to secure funding from state and federal pro- grams. Some thirty-nine buildings were either improved or built. In the area of academics, curricula were ex- panded with the addition of a liberal arts program. The semester system was also established under his administration. Together with these benefits and improvements came some restric- tions. For example, students had to sign in and out of dormitories, and women were given certain number of date nights each week. Another policy for women dealt with their riding in automobiles. Certain after- noon hours were set for that pur- pose. Hours were also set for danc- ing. At that time the Field House was opened (in 1934) for the students ' entertainment. Because of his political involve- ment, President Fredericks was replaced in 1941 when the Long regime was disbanded. Joe Farrar took Fredericks ' place as president of the Normal. World War II also came to the Normal at this time, yet under the supervision of President Farrar, the School came through it well. The enrollment dropped tremendously as men and women went to serve their country. Yet the Normal con- tinued and served her country well in her own way. The college provid- ed instructors for a unit of the Civilian War Training Service. And two naval aviation training schools were located on campus at different times. This relationship with the military probably influenced Presi- dent Farrar when he tried to secure a naval ROTC unit on campus after the war. In administration, President Farrar reorganized the various instructional programs. Three new schools were established: Applied Arts and Sciences, Arts and Sciences, and Education. This reorganization led to the school ' s name change on March 6, 1944, to Northwestern State College. Captain Caspari i l fl « « «s f .• A group of Normal girls took a break in between classes.

T t T T Then in 1945, the school became a member of the Association of American Colleges. During his last few months in office, President Far- rar was ill. Augustus Maddox, head of the department of Mathematics, was acting president. On July 1, 1947, Dr. Joseph Gibson took office and served as president until September 1949. During his short administration, the state made new capital-outlay appropriations for the college. With this aid, needed buildings were constructed. The Col- umns also were in need of repair; he had these rebuilt. Another of his policies was securing higher salaries for the faculty. Because of these endeavors to preserve the college, his resignation came as a shock to the students. Yet no ill feelings were held against him when he went to work at Tulane. " Seekers After Knowledge " was the first organization at Normal. — 1890 The first President ' s home was a two room cottage. -1894 The Alumni Association was organized by Miss Bessie Russell. — 1894 The Klu Klux Klan, Witches, and Yum Yums were some of the early organizations. - 1902-1911 Caldwell Hall was completed at a cost of $85,000. 1906 The Modern Culture Club was organized. 1902 Old Bullard Mansion was demolished. 1913 Registration fees were two dollars. 1913 The first four-year class graduated m the summer. 1920 High School graduation became a requirement for college entrance. 1918 Band members, of the year 1919, modeled their uniforms _ Celebration of a Century ff N State Normal College The next man to take over the presidency was Dr. William McGin- ty. Although he was a temporary president, he served NSC well. A couple of buildings were con- structed, and several buildings were renovated. On April 3, 1950, a ROTC Anti-Aircraft Artillery Unit was ac- cepted for the campus. Yet the greatest of his accomplishments was the establishment of the nursing department. In order to serve as head of the Social Science Department at Ruston, President McGinty resigned as president of Northwestern in September of 1950. The next to assume the position of president was " Coach " H. Lee Prather, a man who had served NSC for thirty-seven years. He was well acquainted with the school by hav- ing served as coach, athl etic director, dean of men, dean of students, and professor of government at different times in his life. Many new benefits for students came about under President Prather ' s administration. Veterans from World War II went to school with assistance from the Veterans Administration. Students worked hard, but they also knew how to en- joy life. Dances and parties were held regularly. The Northwestern State College calendar was filled with traditional celebrations such as homecoming, State Fair, the POT- POURRI Ball, etc. Yet strict rules were still enforced. All freshmen and sophomores were to be in their dormitories by 8:00; therefore, dances during the week were over by 7:45. Also during Prather ' s term, more buildings were restored and three new structures were completed. In 1953, the Department of Nursing became the School of Nursing with its own dean. This program also grew to the point that the Nursing School had divisions in Shreveport, Alexandria, and Baton Rouge. After giving much of his life to North- western, President Prather retired in 1954. The Ten Commandments of the State Normal College J am the covenant, which brought thee out of the primary grades, out of grammar grades, out of high schools, into the most noted Normal College. Thou shalt have no other creeds before me. Thou shalt not chew gum in classes, or any likeness thereof obtainable in the " Y.W. Shop " above, or Sam ' s below, or Charley ' s below Sam ' s. Thou shalt not take the name of thy teacher in vain; for the teacher will not hold him " Flunkless " that taketh his name in vain. Remember Blue Monday is to keep wholly. Five days shalt thou labor and do all thy work, but the sixth and seventh shall be spent in dire fear of the forthcoming Monday. Honor thy President, Dean, and teachers that thy days may not be prolonged in the college in which they reign. Thou shalt not be late to breakfast. Thou shalt not commit thyself to having feasts at midnight. Thou shalt not swipe thy neighbor ' s property. Thou shalt not bear false tales against thy fellow students. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor ' s big mirror. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor ' s Latin pony, nor his ice cream, nor his English themes, nor his umbrella, nor his lesson plans, nor his ability to cut class, nor anything that is thy neighbor ' s.

While in office, he inaugurated a graduate school for the areas of Education, Arts and Sciences. He also secured 20 million dollars for the construction of seven new dormitories and two new dining halls. He also got the ac- creditation of the School of Nursing by the National Association of Schools of Nursing. He was also able to get one million dollars for the pur- chase of land and construction of a nursing facility in Shreveport. Presi- dent Kyser accomplished this and more in his 13 years at Northwestern. Basketball was just one of the many sports at Normal. " Celebration of a Century mi State Normal College The sixties brought both good and bad times to Northwestern. Although the Vietnam Conflict began during this time, the students at NSC were not strongly affected. Festivals, sororities, fraternities, and organizations kept the " spirit " of Northwestern going. Students watched the changing life styles and the progressing war. During this time of change, Arnold Kilpatrick took over as president. Several buildings began construc- tion and new programs came into ef- fect, such as the doctorial and associate degree programs. Two new campuses were established at Fort Polk and England Air Force Base. The administration saw the necessity of the college to be converted into a university. In 1970, the college of- ficially changed its name to North- western State University of Louisiana.

The seventies opened the door to many new activities and dropped many old restrictions. Intramurals became increasingly popular when co-ed activities were permitted. For years men and women could not compete together in intramural ac- tivities. The completion of Turpin Stadium in 1977 offered a new dimension to football. The five minute time limit of talking on the phone, the signing in and out of dorms, and other restrictions were dropped because of the changing at- titudes of the 70s. By the 1980s almost total freedom was allowed Students could go and come from the dormitories any time they wished. Organizations became varied in categories such as, honors, and music. Greek hill buz .ed with excite- ment and activities. The 70s and 80s brought many new opportunities and freedoms to NSU. " Celebration of a Century Northwestern State College Dr. Rene Bienvenu became presi- dent on February 1, 1978. During his four-year term, he secured 25 million dollars for construction. The Fine Arts building was expanded making it one of the best facilities in the state. Funding for a new nursing facility was obtained. So new pro- grams such as the NSU Press, Loui- siana Folklife Center, Lignite Research and Development came in- to existence, and with his help, the Normal Hill was placed on the Na- tional Register for Historic Places. These accomplishments assisted in the growth of the university; therefore, when he anno unced his retirement the school felt a tremen- dous loss.

" Celebration of a Century a in ii Northwestern State College Dr. Joseph Orze filled the office of presidency competently on November 5, 1982. Some needed changes were brought about during President Orze ' s administration. The colleges were reorganized as follows: College of Arts and Sciences, College of Basic Studies and Associate Pro- grams, College of Business and Ap- plied Sciences, College of Education and Behavioral Sciences and College of Nursing. The administration also went through reorganization. In ad- dition, President Orze secured funds for the rebuilding of Caldwell Hall which burned in 1982. Also, with the opening of the completed Fine Arts Building, Orze developed long range plans for the Fine Arts Department. Freshman football team members, " Dogs, " were initiated with a stylish haircut.

During President Orze ' s term, NSU and the city of Natchitoches were selected for the location of the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts. Northwestern donated two dorms and Natchitoches donated the old high school building. The latter donation was a repetition in history. State Repre- sentative, Jimmy Long, offered the House the proposal that Natchitoches would donate the high school building if they were chosen as the location for the school. One hundred years ago this situation oc- curred with the establishment of the Louisiana State Normal School. These two schools were reorganized on October 4, 1984 when one was born and the other celebrated its 100th birthday. The KAs carried on the southern tradition with a new twist.

And man, by vines for beauty trained, Has helped fulfill the columns ' choice Of giving forth whate ' er they ' ve gained And whispering, through the leaves, their voice.

Griffin B eauty pageants have always been a part of student life especially here at Northwestern. Since the early 1920 ' s, girls in some way have been honored for their talent, beauty, and poise. And one of these ways was through selecting a group of girls to be Potpourri beauties. The Potpourri dedicated a section of the book to these beauties. The judging, however, varied from year to year. Sometimes the Potpourri would send in the girls ' photos to a well-known producer such as Billy Rose for his judgment. Or a student and faculty committee chose the winners. Or the panel of judges consisted of photographers, professional models, and television personalities. They con- tinued using these procedures for several years. But through these methods each girl chosen possessed charm and beauty. And these qualities were found in the first " Lady of the Bracelet, " Miss Kahne Dipoala. In 1958, she was chosen from twenty other contestants. The Potpourri staff created this title especially for their Potpourri beauties. And a solid gold bracelet was purchased for " Our Lady of the Bracelet " to wear when she represented the school in public. That bracelet passed each year to the new queen. The 1959 Potpourri editor John Rabb presented Kahne Dipoala, a senior nursing major, at the AWS Masquerade dance held on October 31, 1958. SHW along with the twenty other contestants had been presented to the students, faculty, and judges early in the evening. The judges were Webb Overlander and Jim Barker, makeup men for Sam Goldwin productions, and Benoni Crouch, a model from John Robert Powers Studios. They judged the girls on poise, facial beauty, figure, and charm. The group was then narrowed down to twelve then eight. These eight were then asked a question concerned with Northwestern or their careers. The other girls chosen were as follows: Virginia Atkinson, freshman secretarial major; Janice Lightfoot, freshman elementary education major; Ann Monkhouse, freshman pre-medicine; Bobbie Sue Craft, senior nursing major; Barbara Law, freshman business education major; Karen Stone, junior nursing major; and Marilyn DeFatta, freshman secretarial science major. For several years following this initial event, few changes were made in the pageant. But in 1971, the Potpourri relinquished it to the Student Union Governing Board, where changes were made. Robert Wilson Jr., director of the Student Union, was able to buy the franchise for the Miss Louisiana Pageant. The LOB Pageant became an exciting event for the young women entering for they knew that whoever won would get to repre- sent Northwestern at the Miss Louisiana Pageant and maybe the Miss America Pageant. But no matter how Miss LOB did, she knew that she would get to represent her school throughout the state. And she would have the privilege to wear the bracelet, which had many new charms added. And she also knew that a new charm was placed on the bracelet for her along with the honor of having a picture of herself placed in the Queens ' Room of the Student Union. The bracelet was at one time kept by the Dean of Women, but the SUGB took responsibility of it so future " Ladies of the Bracelet " could have the honor of wearing it.

Griffin T he past of Northwestern held its own aura and beauty. But that charm could not have survived without the influence of the historic city of Natchitoches. Natchitoches ' qualities of old southern charm combined with natural beauty enhanced the school ' s reputation. Natchitoches had always given support to the campus from the time that it donated Bullard Mansion for the first school building until it helped NSU celebrate the centennial. The citizens, for instance in the early years of the 1900 ' s, offered their homes for student housing. And businesses always employed the students with a variety of odd jobs. . . . a time to forget classes for a weekend and enjoy life. Northwestern, however, benefited its home by bringing in new people and new jobs. The townspeople never lacked in entertainment. The city and the college walked hand in hand together never failing to meet the needs of the other. One project which these two communities striv- ed diligently to undertake each year was the Christmas Festival. The event first instituted in 1927 was the dream of one man — Max Burgdorf. For a small Christmas display he secured some 10 watt Christmas tree bulbs, which were then com- ing on the market. The first design using these lights was an eight foot Star of the East. Later the designers extended it to 21 feet. As the lights attracted more people, the local in- habitants began participating in the event. In 1936, Alan Cox and Sam West suggested that a fireworks show be added to the river lighting. Hence the businesses and residents put forth the support for a $300.00 display. Yet the cost of that display skyrocketed to $12,000.00 in 1984. New ligting scenes were added on different occasions. In 1982, Charles Solomon and Charles Maggio redesigned the latest scenes. The city continually added features to the Christmas lighting. Hence the festival was born through a slow process of years. The festival ' s development was due to the in- volvement of many types of people and year- round promotional activities. The Chamber of Commerce, the Festival Committee, the Town Council, the Tourist Commission, and North- western all put forth their time and resources to make each festival a success. And each Christmas Festival proved to be a suc- cess. Thousands of people from all over the U.S. and many parts of the world came to share in the festivities. Each year new attractions were added to meet the demand for entertainment. In 1956, the Festival committee began selecting a young lady to be Miss Merry Christmas. In 1958, the pro- moters decided to give the festival an annual theme. The entrtainment and memorabilia centered on that theme, giving each festival its own identity. Every year Northwestern students played a part in the festivities. Organizations promoted con- certs and involved themselves in the river bank entertainment. And some groups helped to keep order among the massive crowds that thronged to the city. But to NSU students, Christmas Festival meant a time to forget classes for a weekend and enjoy life. What once was a small, insignificant Christmas lighting grew to an annual festival of entertain- ment centered on the colorful display of Christmas scenes to celebrate our Savior ' s birthday.

The Department of Theatre Arts and the School of Perform- ing Arts of Northwestern State University presented, " I ' m Get- ting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road, " February 27- March 3. The play was directed by Ray Schexnider and Dr. William Hunt was musical director. I ' m Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road was a delightful consideration of life and love from the point of view of a woman taking her first steps along the rocky road of in- dependence. It was a musical play that was a clever, uplifting look at life in the " age of liberation. " The cast included Heather (Leigh Wood), Joe (Vince Williams), and Cheryl (Betsy Corley). ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO ' S NEST Britt Solano, Levern McLemore, Treavor Dean, Tony Smith in One Flew Over The Cuckoo ' s Nest. One Flew Over The Cuckoo ' s Nest was presented by Northwestern ' s Department of Theatre and Media Arts in conjunction with the Louisiana High School of Creative and Performing Arts on October 12- 16, 1984. The production was directed oy Ray Schexnider, who was assisted by Cyndi Dutton who Uso stage-managed the produc- ion. Creating an atmosphere of i mental ward was the respon- ibility of Michael Atkins. ftephanie Ryals was responsible or the wonderful lighting ef- ects and lyan Maldonado must e applauded for the original nusic that he composed and performed. The light board perator — Becky Maxcy and the ound board operator — Shelly leynolds were kept on their toes with the complex action of the play. Robert Guy coordinated costumes and properties were run by Merrill Laurent. Merrill also stepped in with the old theatre motto " the show must go on! " to play the part of Billy Bib- bitt when the actor Trevor Dean became ill for the Monday night performance. This drama deals with a group of men that are no longer ac- cepted in the mainstream of society. The audience watched the show through the eyes of Chief Bromdon (Robert Guy). Chief Bromdon is the oldest pa- tient at the hospital. He is an In- dian who has lost his heritage through the modernizing of America and now has chosen to be a deaf-mute, so that people will leave him alone. He along with the other patients are controlled with an iron fist by Nurse Ratched (Gail Robinson). She truly believes her methods of ridicule and embarrassment work — the patients bend to her every command with the help of her two aides Warren (Johnny Cox) and Williams (Jerome Cox) until a new patient is admitted into the ward, Randle P. McMurphy (Britt Solano.) He brings new life to all the patients on the ward and begins to decrease Nurse Ratched ' s rul- ing hand, until the friction becomes unbearable for the pa- tients, especially for the young Billy Bibbitt (Treavor Dean) who takes his life rather than face the persecution of his mother. A confrontation comes center stage between Nurse Ratched as McMurphy tries to strangle Rat- ched. She narrowly escapes death and for punishment to McMurphy she orders him lobotomized. Even though the McMurphy that entered the ward is now dead and there is only a shell of a man left it gives Chief Bromdon the push he needs to escape from the Hospital and return to the out- side world.

The hassles of Northwestern ' s registration were the envy of almost every college in the state — until this year. Pre-registration was available for the Spring semester, but not for the fall semester. Due to NSU ' s new computer system, the usual 30 minute registration time jumped to the three hour mark. People desperately clamored for class cards, and many altered schedules more than once. Those lucky enough to breeze through the first part with no major difficulties were stopped in their tracks (literally) to wait in line for financial aid. Smiling for the cameras ended this year ' s frustrating ordeal — which might ex- plain the funny pictures and comical complaints about I.D. pictures. r Students filled out computer forms after collecting class cards Victory " Vic " the Demon received his annual at Registration. 70 What are your college years worth to you?

" I guess that since I ' m a freshman, I don ' t really realize the full impact college will have on my life. But, I do know that I ' m gonna get more than my money ' s worth out of it.

Northwestern ' s Current Sauce editor John Ramsey defined Demon Dynamite in the September 25, 1984 issue for the student body — " a promotion designed to keep students on cam- pus during home football weekends and to hype Demon athletics. " Just as the name implies, Demon Dynamite hit the campus with a bang. TNT, which stood for Tailgatin ' ' n Turpin, was a highlight for many, with food, Sharon Sampite and Elycia Graham. Cheerleader Melissa Hightower discussed T-shirts with Leah Mills and Helen Hornung. drinks, and live entertainment for all. The enthusiasm of the entire promotion certainly did its duty. The Demon football team lost its first two games, both out-of- town. The first home game, however, threw them into a wonderfully unexpected win- ning streak. This group enjoyed TNT ' s live band.

Griffin G reeks in some form or another have existed on the Northwestern campus since the early 1900s. They have always had the support of students and faculty except for a small lapse in time when Greek organizations were disbanded and forbidden to organize. This situation took place in 1911, when a man small in stature yet forceful in character became president of the Normal school. That man was Victor L. Roy. He felt that the groups would hinder learning. Though the policy was strict, it was unquestioned. The groups which he abolished included the Klu Klux Klan, the Witches, the Yum Yums, Les Chats Noirs de Ville, Mephistra and Alpha Zeta. A page in the 1911 issue of the POTPOURRI was especially dedicated to the " death " of these organizations. Though some students eventually did voice their discontent, President Roy continued this restriction for many years. About 1921, however, a group of six young men secretly formed a fraternity which they named Sigma Delta Tau. It had to meet privately in town so President Roy would not find out. Yet it was able to get officially recognized as a social fraternity by him in 1925. These young men, which had grown in number, held a banquet and invited President Roy. When he attended the dinner, he was unable to say anything against the group because sitting among the members were teachers, principals, and administrators. These men had returned to the Normal to earn their Bachelor ' s degree because when they first attended, the school had only provided a two year program. Mr. Roy was well acquainted with each of these prominent men. Therefore, he had to give in because of their influence. Roy ' s acceptance of Sigma Delta Tau brought about the installment of a sorority, Delta Sigma Epsilon. On March 26, 1926, this organization took its place as the campus ' first national sorority. From its beginnings, the new chapter Phi grew rapidly in number and popularity. The first rush week started on October 2, 1926, with a " picture show party. " The following night the girls had a dance and surprisingly the third activity took place at President Roy ' s home, where Mrs. Roy served as the hostess of a bridge party. At the end of the week, the chosen pledges were initiated. As the social life of Normal became less restric- tive, more sororities and fraternities came. For in- stance, in January of 1929, the first national frater- nity, Sigma Tau Gamma, took up residence by in- corporating the members of Sigma Delta Tau into their newly formed chapter of Nu. This establish- ment benefited the school because Sigma Tau Gam- ma was " distinguished by being the oldest fraternity " for educators in the nation. Its main purpose was " to establish a more intimate relationship and brotherhood among its members and serve in every way as an uplifting factor in their lives. " Supporting this belief, Sigma Tau Gamma continued to be the most influential fraternity on campus for many years. Delta Sigma Epsilon also held its high standards of excellence even when the organization decided to join with another national sorority in 1956. At the National Conclave held in New Orleans on August 19-20, a representative from each chapter agreed to merge with Delta Zeta. The local members were then initiated into this body on Oc- tober 7 in Shreveport. The new name of their chapter was Epsilon Beta. Though these changes were made, the chapter continued to serve the community. In 1984, it continued striving in ser- vice and accomplishments. These two, Sigma Tau Gamma and Delta Zeta, were but a couple who started Greeks on campus. Editor ' s Note: Information for the Greek article was compiled from issues of CURRENT SAUCES and POTPOURRIS and an interview with Dr. ]olly Harper. Right: Greeks participate in " Wreck Tech " week. 80 Ill 81 Greek History! Northwestern has had the honor of chartering many Greek organizations during her past. The first was Sigma Delta Tau, a fraternity for men, while the first sorority was Delta Sigma Epsilon. After their establish- ment in the early twenties, these organizations have since been an ongoing tradition of NSU. From the 1930 ' s to the mid 1950 ' s, there existed five sororities and three fraternities. Then, changes occurred after- wards including name changes and the formation of new organizations through the late fifties and sixties. The 1970 ' s brought new organizations due to increased campus enrollment. The following is a list of all social Greek organizations that have ever existed at Northwestern.

Greeks Serve Their Fellowman. Fraternities and Sororities had projects to raise money for their philanthropies. Philanthropies were persons or organizations to which Greeks donated time and money. They were in need of services which were provided by Greeks. Philanthropies were either local or national projects that were undertaken by the greek organizations when a need arose. Greeks showed concern for others and through philan- thropies helped their communi- ty and world better. Many Greeks started major fund-raising events to benefit their philanthropies. Two ex- amples of these events were the Charity Bowl football game which was held annually by Kappa Sigma fraternity and the annual Kappa Alpha Boxing Tournament to benefit Muscular Dystrophy. Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta sororities held fashion shows and Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity held car washes to benefit NAACP and other organizations. Vast mounts of money were raised by these dedicated Greeks. Delta Zeta, Tau Kappa Ep- silon, Omega Psi Phi, and Sigma Tau Gamma donated money to causes such as Sickle Cell Anemia, Special Olympics, Gallaudet College, and St. Jude ' s Children ' s Hospital. Theta Chi served the Central Louisiana community through holding work weekends every month at Louisiana Lions Camp, an area summer place for crippled children. Theta Chi ' s also sponsored a Halloween par- ty for retarded citizens. Zeta Phi Beta helped children at the local daycare center. Other frater- nities and sororities also spon- sored drives to raise money for children with birth defects and needy. Greeks worked together in the hope that needy people would be adequately cared for. Delta Sigma Theta gave a beauty workshop for NSU students. 84 rut Kappa Sig ' s sold seat cushions for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival. Theta Chi ' s helped clean up Lion ' s childrens camp.

J3tt 85 ifc INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL The Interfraternity Council was the governing body of the fraternities at Northwestern. I.F.C. was the medium through which member fraternities could express themselves for the betterment of the Greek system. Services coordinated by the I.F.C. were: all-star games, Greek week, Rush, workshops on various subjects, and service projects. The I.F.C. strived to promote the same goals that its members retained: character building, developing leadership abilities, promoting participation in social and service activities, scholarship, and brotherhood. In addition, the I.F.C. promoted Greek life, coordinated fraterni- ty activities, mediated inter- chapter disputes, and developed a positive relationship with faculty, administration, and the community. I.F.C. recently joined the Southeastern Interfraternity Conference, whose members were located throughout the southern United States. This new membership enabled the I.F.C. to participate in regional conferences. Through attending regional conferences, the Inter- fraternity Council hoped to learn and use its knowledge to better Greek life at Northwestern. f tt President, Jon Robbins, chaired IFC meetings every Wednesday. % tit IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC IFC BASE PRESENTED BY 1984 INTER.FRATER.NITY COUNCIL The Caldwell Bricks used for the NSU Centennial Monument was cleaned and treated by IFC.

Robert joined Tau Kappa Epsilon social frater- nity in the Fall of his freshman year and was initiated into ac- tive status in the following January. He was very active in NSU student life as well as in TKE. Robert served as a Senator- at-Large in the SGA and was on several committees for the SAB. Robert was one of the leaders of the chapter of Tau Kappa Ep- silon as he served as the Fund Raiser, Social Alumni chairman during his three and half year stay with TKE at NSU. He also served in the capacity of Secretary for one year. We all miss and loved him very much. Robert passed away following an automobile accident on January 4, 1985. He was 22 years old.

Their colors were black and gold. Their open motto was " First of all service to all. We shall transcend all. " Alpha Phi Alpha strove to serve his fellowman. In the past year the brothers served the community by visiting old folks ' homes in the area. They raised money through Greek Shows and Car Washes for their Alpha Phi Alpha philanthropy, NAACP. There are several Alpha Phi Alphas that deserve recognition. Ron Cook was 1st runner up for Mr. NSU. Arthur " Tank " Berry was an all-American tackle and has been scouted by the Pitts- burg Steelers and the Buffalo Bills. Vincent Williams attended Theatrical school in Sarasota, Florida.

" The Gamma Psi chapter had received many various awards and had improved its public service record over the past 3 years. The chapter was honored with such national awards as " Most Improved Chapter, " the " National Publications Award, " and " The Mayor ' s Award for Beautification. " Kappa Alphas were very proud of their annual boxing tournament for muscular dystrophy. The chapter was a leader in the nation for dona- tions to this cause for the past 15 years. The group was very in- volved in many service projects for the city of Natchitoches under the guidance of Mayor Joe Sampite. Another highlight of the year for KA was the annual Old South Ball.

Kappa Alpha Psi, Theta Lambda chapter at North- western was organized by beloved brothers John Simmon, John Winston and advisor Melvin Johnson in 1974 with the same vision shared by our founders in 1911. The fundamental objective of this chapter was to unite college men of culture, partriotism and honor in a bond of Fraternity. Kappa Alpha Psi also encouraged spiritual and social growth of chapter members. Some of the service activities held by Kappa Alpha Psi in the 1984 year were: Halloween par- ties for area religious organiza- tions, the Kappa Alpha Psi an- nual Benefit Fashion Show, and Campus Beautification, which was a service project to clean NSU ' s campus.

The Fraternity ' s GPA topped that of all fraternities in 1984, and Kappa Sigs could be found leading many campus organiza- tions, including SGA, band, Current Sauce, cheerleaders, Potpourri, and many others. Kappa Sigma also won its share of honors. Russel Bienvenu was selected by the student body as Mr. NSU, while the chapter received numerous awards, both from the Universi- ty and from the National Fraternity. Socially, the Kappa Sigs were again very active as they hosted more sorority exchanges than did any other fraternity. The Founders Day Banquet, Black and White Formal, and Luau week highlighted the year. Kappa Sigma was involved in several service projects, in- cluding service projects and fundraisers for the Riverside Guest Home, the Christmas Festival, and the 1984 Kappa Sigma Charity Bowl, where Kappa Sigma and Tau Kappa Epsilon went head-on in a full- pads football game. The Kappa Sigs won 20-0. The national Fraternity was founded in 1869 at the Universi- ty of Virginia in Charlottesville and currently is one of the largest with approximately 200 chapters across North America and Canada.

Howard ' s chapter had four founders: Honorable Earnest E. Just, Honorable Frank A. Coleman, Honorable Oscar J. Cooper, and Honorable Edgar Love. Omega Psi Phi was strengthened by its four cardinal principles of manhood, scholarship, preserva- tion, and uplifting. These prin- ciples proved that the goals that one set for himself were merely limitations placed on the mind Northwestern ' s Theta Delta chapter was founded May 20, 1972, by Advisor George Stanley Lewis. Annual projects of the chapter included raising money for sickle cell anemia, beautify- ing the city of Natchitoches, and visiting prisons and nursing homes. Notable alumni of the chapter were Mark Duper of Miami Dolphins and Sidney Thorton of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Two events held during the 1984 year were a Memorial Day Program and Founder ' s Week. James Frazier Robert Moore Edgar Washington Walter Young Omega Psi Phi entered the Stu- dent Union Christmas Window contest and won second place. 96 fit i bs $bs $bs $bs $bs i B2 PHI BETA SIGMA B2 Phi Beta Sigma, a national social fraternity, has been active on Northwestern ' s campus since 1973. Phi Beta Sigma was originally established on the campus of Howard University, stressing " culture for service and service for humanity. " Along with brotherhood, the members encouraged the closeness of flesh and blood. Phi Beta Sigma has always been an asset to Northwestern as well as the Natchitoches area. They are involved in service projects called SAD, Sigmas Against Defects, in which the brothers would raise money for the fight against birth defects in the Natchitoches area.

Since the chapter ' s inception at NSU, some of its alumni have served in prominent positions such as Lieutenant Governor of Loui- siana, Superintendent of Educa- tion, president of Louisiana Tech University, and also in various military positions. Members of the chapter held various scholastic honors. Four of the chapter members and the White Rose were voted into Who ' s Who Among Students In American Colleges and Universities. In the fall of 1984, Sigma Tau Gamma enjoyed one of the largest pledge classes since its inception. The pledges held many activities, for both the ac- tives and the residents of Natchitoches. The highlights of the 1984 year were the ground-breaking for a new house to be built on Greek Hill, the re-activation of the Rose Court, and the regional meeting which was hosted by the chapter.

This year our members are involved in 16 campus organizations and 3 of our members have been selected for Who ' s Who on American College and University cam- puses for the 1985 year. We are also proud of our 13 Daughters and Little Sisters of the chapter. These Ladies are chosen by how much interest and participation they show in our fraternity events. Theta Chi stands for " Helping Hand. " We strive to live up to this meaningful cause by pro- viding services to the communi- ty and to those who need help. Every semester, we extend our services to the Lion ' s Crippled Children ' s Camp in Leesville by completing whatever work they need to be done. Also, each Halloween we threw a party for the Natchitoches Association for Retarded Citizens. In addition, we have provided maintenance and repair work for the Vernon Parish Council on Aging Home in Rose Pine along with several other projects.

National Panhellenic was an organization established to foster interfraternity relation- ships, to assist collegiate chapters of the NPC member groups, and to cooperate with colleges and universities in maintaining the highest scholastic and social standards. Actual legislative powers of the NPC were limited to enactment of laws for its own government. It was enpowered to make recommendations becoming laws only after ratifications by the member groups. Through such recommendations had come the seven unanimous agreements of the Conference. These were: the Panhellenic Creed, Panhellenic Compact, Standards of Ethical Conduct, Agreement on Questionaires and Constitutions, College Panhellenic Agreement, Jurisdiction of a College Panhellenic Council, and NPC Declaration for Freedom.

The jewel of this sorority was the diamond, which could be found on the active pin. Service was a quality that members strived for. The chapter ' s philanthropy was aid to the hearing impaired, especially Gallaudet College, which was the first college in the United States exclusively for the deaf. The members held car washes and other such events to raise money for their philanthropy. The message that Delta Zeta sorority stressed was that each member was a unique in- dividual with dreams of success in life. All of the members shared sorority life and combined to form a very strong bond of sisterhood. Delta Zeta helped blast NSU in to a new century.

More than just a place to call their own, most of Northwestern ' s Greeks looked at their house as the next best thing to home. While eight Greek organiza- tions owned houses, only two were located off campus, on Second Street, providing the unique opportunity for members to reside there while attending school. The other houses, or Lodges, were located on " Greek Hill " which was donated by the University to the Greek organizations in the late 1950 ' s. The houses served several purposes. They provided a setting for weekly meetings, study sessions, and work pro- jects for the group ' s chapter. As Rush took over the cam- pus, the sorority houses became " Racetracks, " " Casino ' s, " or a scene from the " Roaring 20 ' s, " while the fraternities threw par- ties never to be forgotten. For its members, the house GREEK became a main social hang-out. Visiting with friends or just watching TV gave the members something to do, keeping them away from boredom.

He wrote: " We know we are not all alike we do not think alike - - for our fraternity is made up of individuals differing from one another in thought, motive, and reaction. Because of this feeling, no one must interfere or dicatate another ' s way of thinking. The home must cor- rect; the church preach; the school advise; the court rule; the press in- form; the law enforce; but the fraternity teach. " " The human spirit is different in each of us, but we all have the same divine background. It is this that makes us true brothers, for we can all be changed, especially when we have passed through the ceremony of initiation. " £t 123 NORTHWESTERN ' S OFFICIAL HOSTESSES by Terri D. Griffin A true part of Northwestern ' s history was Purple Jackets, the oldest surviving honorary organization on campus. It came into existence in the Fall of 1926 through the joint effort of President V. L. Roy and Miss Catherine Winters, associate professor of history. To be a member of Purple Jackets was a great honor for a girl attending Normal. Those selected needed to possess leadership qualities, and they needed to MY PURPLE J A CKET GIR L College Pal, I ' m lonely, dreaming only, Of days when we were pals so true.

Just drifting along when skies were so blue, Your smile like the sun shone through, Memories returning, My heart ' s yearning, My Purple Jacket Girl, " I love You. " - By Ross Maggio be hard working individuals. Hence selecting the girls was usually a challenge, especially in the beginning. The spring of 1927 saw the initiation of the first members. Each club and society had to choose three representatives of which President Roy chose a committee to elect fifteen girls. Of these girls, Eva Firestone was appointed tem- porary chairman. At the first meeting she recom- mended the next meeting be dedicated to electing officers. Jackets in the shade of purple were then ordered. The first officers were designated as leader, assistant leader and reporter. Mable Callendar became the leader, which she held for several years. Doris Henry assumed the position of assis- tant leader. And Frances Griffin undertook the job of reporter. The group then had to elect commit- tees which decided upon an organization code and found worthwhile service projects. One of the first projects that the new members faced was helping " freshies " become oriented with the school. They also began working at gradua- tions, recitals, and other such gatherings. In a short period, their service became a great asset to the college, thereby creating their title of " official hostesses. " Miss Winters continued her sponsorship of this worthwhile organization until the 1950 ' s when she relinquished it to such women as Eve Mouton. It then fell into the hands of the Dean of Women. When Mrs. Lucile Hendricks became dean, she ap- pointed dedicated sponsors. The club passed to different sponsors until three years ago when Mrs. Mickie Townsend took on the responsibility. And in the past year, she had co-sponsored Purple Jackets with Miss Mary Smith. Under their guidance, Purple Jackets sustained their excellent reputation in service. According to the guidelines of 1984, a girl had to belong to two organizations and to serve as an officer in at least one. She also had to maintain a 2.6 or above grade point average. These guidelines preserved the qualities of excellence envisioned by President Roy and Miss Winters for those first Purple Jacket girls.

A parade at Colfax led the Black Knights to win their first drill meet in 1957. Following in I960, with Jim Plum as commander, the Black Knights won their first trophy. In December of 1975, the James A. Noe Drill Meet was the first to be sponsored at Northwestern State University by the Black Knights. In honor of that beginning, there was a drill meet which was held an- nually named after the late Governor James A. Noe. Because of their dedication, the Black Knights received numerous victories. In 1983, the group attended the Louisiana Pecan Festival and was awarded first place honors overall. As 1984 approached, the Black Knights became one of the most distinguished and aggressive marching units in the state of Louisiana. The team captured first place honors in the Krewe of Poseidon Parade over the past several years. In events held at Texas A M University, the Black Knights won second place honors as well as an award for being the best overall team. Northwestern ' s Black Knights have always had pride in their hard work and have traveled to the National Conference Drill Team Competition in Washington D.C. for most of the years since their inception at Northwestern. The members of the Black Knights Drill Team for the 1984-85 year were: Coach Stanley Zeigler, Eric Sweeney, Tedris Smith, Ronnie Blake, Lemuel Mar- shall, Bill Keller, Isaac Turner, Patrick Walker, David Hancock, Kevin Castle, Jerry Clifton, Jr., Melvin Manuel, Tyrone Nixon, and Barrett McClinton. During the past year, the Black Knights attended meets in New Orleans, Zwolle, the Loui- siana Pecan Festival, Texas A M, the Natchitoches Christmas Festival, and the Winn Parish Parade.

For the past four years, the Northwestern Orienteering team, or Pathfinders, has com- peted in both national and area competition. The 1984-85 team was Northwestern ' s largest and their competition in meets was more far-reaching. Orienteering was slowly growing in popularity in this country. The sport involved cross country navigation over a set course using a compass and map skills. Orienteering ap- pealed to many people, young and old, with one big interest — a love for the outdoors. Every competitor ran against others in his or her experience, skill and age level. 1984-84 Orienteering team The Pathfinders went to meets in Pineville, LA; Huntsville, TX; Shreveport, LA; Hunstsville, AL; and St. Louis, MO. The team also sponsored their second annual meet in con- junction with Natchitoches Cen- tral High School in the spring. This event welcomed more than 300 area participants. The members of North- western ' s Pathfinders for the 1984-84 season were: Captain Gerry Snelson, Advisor: Joe Keating, Fran Hanks, Brian Marshall, Billy Nichols, Diana Gratten, John Edboizg, Gerald Spenser, Lazvson Adams, David Silver, Ann Police, Richard Fenoli, and Greg Jolley. 128 v CORPS OF CADETS KUTC Students stand at attention. The Army Reserve Officers ' Training Corps prepared college students across the country for the challenges of military service. ROTC programs sup- plied approximately seventy- five percent of the new officers to both the active Army and Reserve components. Northwestern ' s ROTC pro- gram provided its cadets with valuable leadership experience ind training in various military skills. This year saw the most zhallenging activities scheduled o date. The Corps of Cadets conducted a field training course for 350 high school Junior ROTC students in order to expose them to military life in a field en- vironment. Other activities were: bringing the game football to the State Fair game and rais- ing money for the Shriner ' s Crippled Children ' s Hospital in Shreveport. Also, the group planned and attended the Military Ball. The ROTC Program at Northwestern continued to grow and was well respected on campus.

Northwestern ' s Society for the Advancement of Manage- ment, or S.A.M. , was founded in 1967. The reason that this organization was founded was so that students could learn pro- fessional ideas and concepts about management. One of the highlights of the 1984-85 year for NSU ' s SAM was sponsoring a lecture by Natchitoches mayor, Joe Sampite. S.P.A.

One of the major activities the SPA held this year was a banquet for its members. 1M 3« JL« «£Zi« The Student Louisiana Association of Educators was organized in 1978 after the Louisiana Teachers Convention. The idea behind this organization was to acquaint educations majors with the ethics of the teaching profession as well as to get the members more involved in education. Students majoring in other fields related to education were also eligible to become members. Officers of S.L.A.E. were elected in the spring. Even though the club was unusually small, the of- ficers stimulated the group and managed to ac- complish many tasks. One major project was assisting at the Future of Education Conference which was held at Northwestern in the fall. The club also held raffles and other such activities.

Student Ambassadors Student Ambassadors was a newly chartered organization at Northwestern. Founded in 1983 by the Office of High School Relations, this group was designed to acquaint state high schools with Northwestern. The members of Student Am- bassadors were students who attended NSU. The group sent correspondence to interested high school students and toured area schools to inform students about Northwestern. Student Ambassadors — Front Row: Gregory C.

It was an organization for the students composed of the students. It consisted of three represent- atives from each of the five semester nursing classes, one representative from the graduate program and four senators-at-large.

The principle function of Northwestern ' s Student Government, or S.G.A., was to protect the rights and interests of the university ' s students. In an effort to fulfill this respon- sibility, the S.G.A. sponsored a variety of programs and ac- tivities such as the Student Body Loan Fund, Legal Aid for Students, the Distinguished Lec- ture Series, and an annual blood drive. During State Fair and Homecoming weeks, the Stu- dent Government Association sponsored elections to choose students to represent the univer- sity. NSU ' s S.G.A. also provided a forum for voicing opinions on matters which affected the students. This was accomplished through the introduction and passage of bills and resolutions as well as through the many university committees which had student representatives.

In April of 1984, North- western ' s Student Union Governm ent Board, or S.U.G.B., voted to change its name to the Student Activities Board. By unanimous decision, the vote was approved. The reason for the name change was because " Students were confus- ing us with the Student Government Association, " ac- cording to Charlene Elvers, 1983-84 President. The Student Activities Board held elections in the spring. Stephanie Samuels, who was elected President, served as a liaison between the Student Ac- tivities Board and the universi- ty. Rita Ravarre, first Vice- Rita Ravarre, First Vice-President Lafitte was selected as Parliamentarian. She served as a Sergeant-At-Arms during all Student Activities Board Meetings. Lisa Williams, Program Director, served as a Historian. She kept a scrapbook of all events that were held by the S.A.B. This scrapbook was used to record the events for future reference. These new of- ficers composed the Executive Council of the Student Ac- tivities Board. President, coordinated cooperative buying at all regional and state conferences and was also responsible for all of the programs held by the S.A.B. over the school year; all of the committee chairmen were responsible to her. Jimmy Hartline was selected as second Vice-President. His duties were to be in charge of the concert committee and manager of the sound equipment; all of the Representatives-at-Large were responsible to him.

NSU ' s Student Activities Board had several committees which students may join. The only requirement for member- ship was that a student must be enrolled in 12 hours of course work and maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average. The S.A.B. committees were: Hospitality Decorations, which was chaired by Wanda Huhner; Lagniappe, which was headed by Judi Humphrey; Fine Arts, whose chairman was Elaina Ver- ret; the Lady of the Bracelet Pageant committee, which was chaired by Levern McLemore; the Cinema Focus Committee, which was chaired by Theresa Stewart; and the Public Relations Committee, which was headed by David Silver. The Hospitality Decorations Committee decorated the stu- dent union building for several functions. At Christmas time, this committee sponsored a win- dow decorating contest and held a trim-a-tree party. The Lagniappe Committee invited performers to Union Station and also sponsored a photographer who specialized in taking old- fashioned novelty portraits. The Fine Arts Committee helped with the Natchitoches Folk Festival in the summer and sponsored acts such as classical pianists. The L.O.B. Pageant Commit- tee produced the annual Lady of the Bracelet Pageant. Before the pageant, the committee chose entertainment for the event and gave an acceptance tea for the contestants. After a week of rehearsals, the committee would conduct the pageant and hold a reception for the contestants and their parents. The Cinema Focus Committee sponsored movies and videos for the spring and fall semesters. The Public Relations Committee had the responsibility of making posters and doing other such duties to publicize union events. The committees of the student Activities Board helped students become more involved in stu- dent life at Northwestern. 168 NSU Country Dancers The NSU Country Dancers were directed by Colleen Lan- caster and sponsored by the dance division of the theater arts department. The group was founded in the fall of 1982 for the purpose of performing Country Western Ballroom Dances at benefits, for the local nursing homes, and for other events where a " Western Theme " was used. The NSU Country Dancers have performed each year for the Fall Tour of Homes in Natchitoches and the annual Christmas Festival Riverbank Show.

Cane Country Swingers 84-85 Cane Country Swingers The Cane Country Swingers was a performing group which was established at Northwestern in 1982. Before its inception at NSU, the group consisted of the townspeople from Natchitoches and surrounding towns. Classes in square dancing were held each semester; students who completed the lessons were eligible to join the performing group. The Cane Country swingers sponsored a dance each month and visited other area groups during each month. Shreveport, Alexandria, Lees- ville, DeRidder, and Lufkin, Texas, were some of the cities that the group danced in on Saturday nights.

Argus, North western ' s literary magazine, was published by the students of NSU as an outlet for their creative works, both literary and artistic. In addition to holding a Fall and Spring contest through which student works were judged and selected for publica- tion in the magazine, Argus also acted as a way these works could be further recognized for their merits. The magazine entered several regional and national contests, including Louisiana College Writer ' s Society and the Southern Literary Festival. The 1983 issue of Argus received the honor of being awarded first place at the Southern Literary Festival. Several pieces from both the 1983 and 1984 issues placed in the Louisiana College Writer ' s Competition as well as gaining recognition and publica- tion in The Rectangle, the official publication of Sigma Tau Delta National English Honor Society. Argus literary competitions were judged by the NSU English department faculty and the con- tests culminated in an awards presentation in conjunction with the prize winning pieces which were read by the Loft Readers, an NSU readers theatre group. The creativity of Argus was that of the students of Northwestern. They were the driving force behind the magazine and without their in- put and care, Argus would not have existed. 170 K.N.W.D. z= Members of the K.N.W.D. staff pose for the camera. 1984-85 K.N.W.D.

The unique aspect about K.N.W.D. was that it played a variety of music, but kept away from playing top ten music. Because of this factor and because it was commercial free, K.N.W.D. managed to remain a favorite radio station among NSU students. 1984 K.N.W.D.

Griffin A .s the ball was passed and the play completed, the cheering crowd yelled " Go Demons. " That name to many freshmen, who have entered Northwestern over the past few decades, seemed unique and even peculiar. They posed many questions about it such as " Why a demon? " , " Who created it?, " and " When was it created? " The year for the creation of the mascot was 1923. The football team, which had been at the school for many years, had never had a real team name. It had been occasionally called " our faithful warriors " in many newspaper articles, but no definite name had ever been given. Therefore, President Victor L. Roy and Coach H. L. Prather felt that the team needed a mascot and that the students should chose it. Hence President Roy declared a contest. The students were to submit their choices for the name by noon on October 25, 1923. These entries were then examined by a com- mittee of three — President Roy, Dr. Jesse Haz- zard, and Mr. John Guardia. The winner was sup- posed to be announced the next day at the assembly; the committee, however, could not decide between " Braves " or " Demons. " The final choice was left to the students and they chose " Demons. " Two students had submitted this entry. They were Miss Eileen Ritter, an English Social Science major from Abberville, and Mr. Truett Scar- borough, an English Social Science major from Natchitoches. They won the prize which was a cash amount of $10.00. The true reasons for this particular choice will probably never be known, yet some ironies exist which may have affected the decision. First, the mere amount awarded to the winners seemed small in comparison to the money made from the Demon songs and slogans. Organizational names were derived from the Demon, such as The Demonaires, and the Demonettes. Editorials for the Current Sauce such as " Satan ' s Satire " and " Demon Screams " came from the name. The team ' s name has truly left a mark on the school ' s history. Another irony occurred when the mascot selec- tion was being made. During the contest, a fic- tional article called " Satan " was being run in " The Natchitoches Times. " Whether it had any influence on the choice, who can say? That question may never be answered. But judging from the follow- ing list of entries, the Demons appeared to be the most unusual. Other entries included: Spartans, Lions, Fighters, Warriors, Chiefs, Eagles, Falcons, Boosters, Sharks, Gridiron, Knights, Bearcats, Daredevils, Emperors, Cannons, Deers, Bucks, Musketeers, Invincibles, Big Chiefs, Panthers, In- dians, Giants, Wolves, Serpents, Pelicans, Prather ' s Ground Hogs, Royalists, Victors, Cyclops, Dragons, Bloodhounds, Terriers, Cubs, Professors, Cannonballs, Cavaliers, Leopards, Redskins, Pioneers, Wasps, and Rattlesnakes. The school could have had the distinction of be- ing one of these, but the faculty and students preferred the Demon. And in 1984, the Demon was named " Vic, " short for Victory, by Ray Carney, director of external affairs. The name " Vic " was chosen over some 300 other entries. Also in 1984, the Demon received the honor of being chosen as the best college mascot by the Na- tional Cheerleader Association. This honor was due to the amusing character which has so closely been associated with the Demon since its beginnings.

Demon ball carriers chewed up 163 yards in 45 carries. Sophomore tailback Elliott Dawson, led nine Demon rushers with 45 yards on 12 car- ries. Chris Chenier tallied 39 yards on just seven attempts. Two other NSU players, freshman fullback John Stephens and sophomore receiver Odessa Turner, both scored a touchdown and gained 26 yards rushing apiece. Turner scored on a six-yard run the first time he touched the ball. On the defense, Pre-season All American Michael " Red " Richardson totaled nine tackles from his safety position and recovered the fumble that led to the first Demon touchdown of the season. Demon sophomore, Earnest Crittendon, a 6-2, 200- pounder from Haynesville, par- ticipated in 20 tackles.

" I thought the best team got beat, " stated Goodwin. " Our defense really pilaycd well except for one drive, but our offense was consistent. " The services of star- ting quarterback Wayne Van were lost in the third period with a slight shoulder separa- tion. The Angelo State defense took advantage of four pass in- terceptions in the final period, often using a strong rush to force bad passes. The Demon defense allowed Angelo State just 50 yards rushing and just 208 total yards on the night. Robert Moore, Freddy Smith, and Larry Robinson all had big plays, while Earnest Crittenden had a very consistent performance. With just 33 seconds left in the game, the Demons took over at their own 47 and Fabrizio hit Roy Fontenot for a 13 yard gain on first down.

Northwestern State Coach Sam Goodwin enjoyed the feel- ing as his Demon football team defeated Abilene Chris- tian by a 26-7 margin for its first win in three games. Goodwin was able to relax because his defense had turned in another outstanding performance and his offense had rushed for more yards than a Demon offense had gained since the 1980 season. The Demon defense, im- proved again, holding the po- tent Abilene Christian attack to just 149 total yards, in- cluding 35 rushing and 114 yards passing. The Wildcats managed just 25 yards in the final two periods. " Our defense really got after them, " noted Goodwin. " We were able to put more pressure on the quarterback in the second half. Tank Berry got a sack early in the third period and from then on we did better with the rush. The Wildcats completed only 12 of 26 passes and cornerback Charles Fulton also had an in- terception. While the defense was strong again, the offense rolled up 427 yards for the night, including 354 yards on the ground. Elliott Dawson led the way with 111 yards while Chris Chenier added 98, John Stephens 77 and quarterback Rob Fabrizio 61 yards and two scores.

The Demons used a fake punt for the first time this season on their second drive of the night. The 32-yard pass-play from punter Mike Crow to Anthony Gibson, with a 15-yard penalty added on, led to the opening field goal of the night for NSU ' s Benny Brouilette. During the second half, quarter- back Wayne Van read an upcom- ing blitz and hit Odessa Turner for a 71-yard scoring strike. The Demons recovered three Indian fumbles on the night and in- tercepted three passes. On the other hand, Northeast had just two plays of over 25 yards, one on a fake punt for 32 yards and another a pass for 26 yards. Says Coach Sam Goodwin, " Not having a single fumble was the big key to the win.

Fellow tailback, Elliott Dawson had his best output of the season, gaining 95 yards and scoring his first two touchdowns of the 1984 campaign. The pass- ing game tallied 175 yards, all on the arm of Wayne Van. Van sprayed the ball around to five different targets, with fullback John Stephens being the favorite. The 6-2, 202-pound freshman gathered in six catches for a season high 96 yards. The game ' s longest play came right before halftime when Van dumped a screen pass to Stephens, who then preceded down the left sideline, picking up a key block by center Ricky Ainsworth in route to a 51 -yard touchdown reception. Wide receiver David Groman hauled in two passes for 39 yards as Van completed 12 of 20 throws. Kicker Benny Brouillette re- mained tied with Van for season scoring honors after he suc- cessfully converted all four e xtra points.

Tech — 5 NSU — Northwestern State had its four-game winning streak snapped in a 5-0 loss to Loui- siana Tech in the annual State Fair Classic Game. " We just didn ' t play well offensively, " said the Demon coach about the con- test that was played in the rain and mud. " We made mental mistakes on offense and we had some penalties that put us in the hole, giving us long yardage situa- tions. " The Demons had one ear- ly scoring chance fail as a fourth and one attempt gained no yar- dage in the first quarter and in the second period the Demons came up empty after a first down at the Tech 14-yard line. On the fourth down attempt Goodwin said a field goal attempt crossed his mind, but only brief- ly. " We had less than a yard and we had been getting two or three yards a carry, " noted Goodwin. " Plus with the conditions we felt it was best to go for it. " Fullback John Stephens was stopped for no gain and Tech took over. Later, in the second period, a 19-yard pass from Quarterback Wayne Van to Roy Fontenot put the Demons in good field position at the Tech 14. But two straight procedure penalties and a sack ended that threat. " Those penalties sort of rattled us for the rest of the half, " added Goodwin. ' Then in the second half we thought we might be out of the hole but we had a cou- ple of penalties that put us in long yardage situations and the conditions weren ' t good for that. " The Demons used two quarterbacks in the contest as Rob Fabrizio at times spelled Van. Northwestern came up with four interceptions and two fum- ble recoveries against the Bulldogs, one of those intercep- tions going to All-American safety Michael Richardson. Other Demons with interceptions were linebackers Freddy Smith and Anthony Jackson and corner- back Robert Moore. Smith and Anthony Gibson had the fumble recoveries.

John Stephens got the Demons ' first touchdown on a one-yard drive and later in the first quarter dragged much of the Sam Houston defense with him on a nine-yard TD. He end- ed the night as the Demons ' leading rusher on the season with 438 yards to date, carried only four times but got the most out of his efforts with 47 yards. Elliott Dawson rushed for 35 yards and a touchdown. The four touchdowns on the ground marked a Demon high for the season. Odessa Turner returned two kicks for 69 yards, coming close to breaking both of those for touchdowns. Benny Brouillette had a good night, as the placekicker tallied eight points to give him 33 for the season. NSU now has sur- rendered just 7.9 points per con- test, including a total of 19 over the last four contests. Frank Graham threw some muscle into BearKat defender.

" I said last week that we had to win or forget the playoffs, " said Goodwin. " And we won in convincing fashion over a good football team. I think we are better than people give us credit for. Our defense has been great and in recent weeks the offense has been putting points on the board. " The Demons allowed only seven points per game. Southern Southern Mississippi — NSU — 22 Mississipppi was held to just 128 yards in total offense, including just six net yards in the second half. The offense rolled up 319 yards, including 156 rushing and 163 passing. Quarterback Wayne Van had two touchdown passes and ran for the final Demon score of the night. Chris Chenier had emerged as the premier back in the Demon backfield, with season totals at 5-7 yards and 5.3 yards a carry at this point. Chris Chenier was premier back for the Demons.

The Demons jumped to a 14-0 advantage at halftime, but after leading 21-0 saw Southeastern LA rally for two quick scores to get back in the game. From there the Demon of- fense put together two long scoring drives and the defense reverted to its usual form as the Demons won for the seventh time in eight games. The Demons ground out 286 yards Center Ricky Ainsworth worked hard. on the ground, including a career high 121 yards on 12 car- ries by freshman John Stephens. Running from the tailback spot, Stephens set up the third Demon touchdown with a 71-yard run in the third period. The Demons also got 89 yards on 15 carries from tailback Elliott Dawson. Southeastern gained just 74 yards rushing on the night. " We had too many penalties on offense that kept us in long yardage situa- tions, " said Demon Coach Sam Goodwin.

Stephen F. Austin — 22 NSU — 18 Giving up the big play on defense and failing to convert scoring opportunities on offense were the reasons given by Northwestern State football coach Sam Goodwin after he viewed films of the Demons ' 22-18 loss at Stephen F. Austin. That on the part of the Demons and the fact that Stephen F. Austin played a solid game with few mistakes. The Demons, in the contest for the first time this season, gave up three touchdowns, all coming on, or being set up by, the big play. The first Lumberjack score came on a 67-yard run with a recovered fumble. A 47-yard field goal attempt was just missed to the right, another field goal try was never kicked after a high snap and a long touchdown was called back on a holding call. Plus the Demons did not score after reaching the SFA seven yard line in the final seconds.

With his youngest squad and toughest schedule in five years, Northwestern State basketball coach Wayne Yates knew the 1984-85 season would be a challenge for his Demons. The Demons would go up against the likes of Texas, Southern Methodist, Louisiana Tech and Oklahoma. " While we realize our hardship of youth, " noted Yates, " we look forward to the challenge of the season.

Together these students formed the Demon Ski Team. They en- joyed competition, skillful ex- hibition and growing friendships. These students saw action in different meets in many dif- ferent cities. In these meets they met new faces that also shared this love of skiing. They had the opportunity to show-off their best skills in hopes of winning a trophy or of simply enjoying the fun.

Griffin O ne of the first things that a student learned when he entered NSU was where each building was located. Somehow if that was accomplished and no buildings disappeared in the process, a person could have begun to get to class on time within the first two weeks or four years whatever the case may be. But those two weeks took time and patience because some buildings had several official and unofficial names. Kyser Hall, for example, was sometimes called the Arts and Science Building. Or some referred to the A. A. Fredericks Building as the music building. Most people, however, probably never considered why these buildings had several names and for whom they were named. Well each were dedicated at some time or the other after its construction for an exceptional individual who influenced NSU ' s past. For example, many of the buildings were named for past school presidents. But over the years former faculty and administrators have been remembered with dedications. Little or nothing was known about this latter group. The following lists by the year of 1984 the buildings named for individuals. Roy Hall was dedicated to President Victor Leandor Roy. He served the school for eighteen years (1911-1929). The A. A. Fredericks Buildings for the Creative and Performing Arts came to be named after Albert A. Fredericks, professor of agriculture for fifteen years and president for seven years. Upon the completion of the Coliseum, the school honored " Coach " H. Lee Prather in dedication of it to him. He served as coach, athletic director, dean of men, dean of students, professor of political science, and college president for forty one years of residence at Normal. The Arts and Science Building came to be named after Dr. John S. Kyser. His work as professor of geography and college president left its impression upon the students he influenced. Miss Scharlie Russell, remembered for her long years of service as head librarian (1910-1940), had the old library named for her on November 18, 1940. Prof. George Williamson had the old biology building named for him in 1958. He served the school from about 1898 to 1936 as biology department head and museum currator. The old Science Building took on the name of Prof. Francis Gary Fournet in respect for his years spent in teaching physics and heading the physical science department. Turpin Stadium took its name from Harry " Rags " Turpin. He graduated from Louisiana State Normal in 1926 and served as physical education teacher and athletic director for NSC. The Eugene P. Watson Memorial Library was also named for a former graduate and faculty member. Dr. Watson served as head of the library science department until the mid 1960 ' s. These last individuals did not directly affect the school but will be long remembered. They were Supt. Warren Easton and Capt. Caspari. Warren Easton was dedicated in 1928 for this former state superintendent. And in 1958, Caspari Hall was dedicated to the friend and former state representative for Natchitoches and Northwestern State University. Editor ' s note: The information above was compiled from The History of Northwestern State College of Louisiana by Ottis Crew and issues of Potpourri. Faculty enjoyed a little entertainment in their free time. 226 Ill OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT 1984, the Centennial year, was an exciting year to be president of Northwestern, as Dr. Orze discovered. Dr. Joseph Orze, whose educa- tion includes a BFA-magna cum laude and a MS from Syracuse University, received his Doc- torate in Education from George Peabody College. Plans for his office included following through with the zero base audit of the university and working to implement the priorities that the audit helps to establish. Orze felt that learning was an ongoing process, and that the best education was that which helped you to understand your full potential by preparing you to be a self-motivated, self-educator. Orze ' s advice to students — " Become all you are capable of be- ing. Reach your potential. " 228 II LOUISIANA BOARD OF TRUSTEES LOUISIANA BOARD OF REGENTS William Arceneaux E.E.

Universi- ty Affairs works to support that function, and to develop and maintain an environment for learning and teaching that is safe, clean, and attractive. We always seek to do this more effi- ciently and economically. We hope soon to renovate and modernize several classroom buildings, improve campus lighting, acquire a modern telephone system, and complete an in- ternal reorganization and reallocation of our resources and responsibilities. " Dr. Stokes firmly believed that education should be a life-long pursuit for everyone. He felt that his most valued ac- complishments during his lifetime includ- ed whatever success he has achieved teaching classes at NSU. His advice to students was " Try to acquire the habit of reading. " Mildred Bailey Dean of Graduate School Dr. Mildred Bailey succeeded Dr. Donald Rawson as dean of the Graduate School during the summer of 1984. As part of the Northwestern faculty for 21 years, Dr. Bailey was well aware of the needs and problems that students face daily. A noted educator, Dr. Bailey has published several items including her own reading basal series.

" Dean Ledbetter 232 DEAN OF BUSINESS AND APPLIED SCIENCES Head of the College of Business and Applied Sciences was Dean Smiley. This college offered degree programs in areas such as accounting, computer and informational services, pre-veterinary medicine, aviational science, and home economics. Dean Smiley DEAN OF STUDENTS As Dean of Students, Frederick Bosarge ' s duties in- cluded making sure that out-of-classroom activities and learning situations were available. He focused on nonacademic services available to students, to insure that they were the best that Northwestern resources offered. Dean Bosarge DEAN OF GRADUATE STUDIES Mildred Bailey was Dean of the College of Graduate Studies, which maintained the philosophy that graduate study was much more than a mere continuation of undergraduate work. It was considered by those who had already demonstrated high intellectual achievements and the capability o independent thought. Dean Bailey t DEAN OF ARTS AND SCIENCES Dean Edward Graham headed the College of Arts and Sciences, which offered degrees in such areas as theatre, advertising design, biology, mass com- munications, history, mathe- matics, music, and social sciences. The two main buildings for this college includ- ed the Rene J. Bienvenu Hall, which housed biological sciences and psychology, and the new Center for Creative and Performing Arts complex. DEAN OF BASIC STUDIES Ben Barron ' s office was located in the renovated Old Trade School building, where Orienta- tion and tutoring took place. He was the Dean of Basic Studies, which offered associate degree programs as well as a bachelor degree program in General Studies (which helped in cases of undecided majors). All freshmen were enrolled in this college until thirty semester hours were completed.

The project, at the cost of $8 million, involved the construc- tion of a new academic- administrative building and the renovation and restoration of the old Line Avenue School. NORTHWESTERN — WARRINGTON Both buildings were located next to the Schumpert Medical Center. The Line Avenue School was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in June of 1981. The new center gave the Col- lege of Nursing nearly 88,000 square feet of additional ad- ministrative and classroom space, and allowed the three nursing degree programs to be located on the same campus for the first time. This convenience added positive changes in class scheduling flexibility, instruc- tional capabilities for faculty, assisted and self-learning resource use by students, and communication within the Col- lege of Nursing and with the University.

Griffin I ,n the spring of 1886, three young women embarked upon their teaching careers after securing the knowledge necessary for such a task. These women, however, were different than most at that time in that they were the first graduates of Louisiana State Normal School. They possessed a wider knowledge of their profession than did many of the teachers already serving in Louisiana, because L.S.N.S. was especially designed to prepare men and women for teaching. These first graduates were Miss Mary Washington, Miss Sallie Phillips, and Miss Emma Oswalt. Their education careers helped to establish a precedent for future graduates. For Mary Washington, such educational goals had always been a part of her life. She came from Mansfield to Natchitoches, seeking a position of employment preferably as a tutor. Her first job was in the home of Judge David Pearson. When the Normal opened in 1885, she promptly entered. After her graduation in April of 1886, she remained at L.S.N.S. as a geography and calisthenics teacher until the end of President Sheib ' s term. Her new endeavor was getting a bachelor ' s degree in New York. With that ac- complished, she was able to get a faculty position at the University of Arkansas. But after six years, her heart called her back to Mansfield where she married Mr. Joe R. Brown on March 31, 1898. Mrs. Brown resided there until her death. Yet during that time she never forgot her old school because she visited it on a few occasions. Sallie Phillips, on the other hand, lived much of her life away from Louisiana. She, originally from Bienville parish, left after graduation with her new husband, Rev. James Hamilton. He was a Presbyterian minister called to the mission field. They left for South America where Mrs. Hamilton devoted her teaching skills to the church schools. After completing their service, they returned to the U.S. The Hamiltons then lived in Dallas until their deaths. Emma Oswalt took another route with her education. She came to Normal from Lauderdale, Mississippi after graduating valedictorian of her senior class in 1877. Then with the new teaching degree from the Normal School, she decided to teach there until 1890 as a teacher of arithmetic and civil government. Then she undertook a teaching position in Monroe. There her skills were used to educate elementary school children. She also continued to improve her education by spending a few summers at the University of Colorado. These three women left their indelible mark, which many of the other graduates have also done. These women influenced the world through education. Other graduates in education have also succeeded by becoming exceptional teachers, principals, and administrators, while others have succeeded in law, politics, medicine, art, music, athletics, and business. This institute of higher learning has produced lawyers, dentists and other such professionals. It has been represented in the sports world as well. A former lieutenant governor, a bank president, and a former Natchitoches district attorney are representatives of the important people who have graduated from Northwestern. These are but a few of the many students who graduated and pur- sued higher degrees of learning and influential careers.

Lebanon was torn by civil war and foreign invasion. In 1984 when the Marines left, more than 260 Marines were dead, Lebanon was still at war with most of its territory occupied by foreign troops and its government tottering. The price of President Reagan ' s commitment was too high and the Marines left Beirut. POPE JOHN PAUL II was traveling pope in 1984. In May he went to South Korea, Thailand, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands; in June he went to Switzerland; in September to Canada and in October to Spain, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

The World ' s Fair and New Orleans. It was a celebration unlike none before. Fabulous food, music, performers and ex- hibitions from all over the world were just a few of the things visitors to the fair enjoyed. The World ' s Fair exhibits represented the variety of mankind ' s cultural, scientific and economic breakthroughs. Fairgoers were able to sense firsthand the wonders of Japan, Australia, the Peoples Republic of China, United Kingdom, Greece and others. Perhaps the most popular attractions were the Vatican, the Canadian Pavillion, and of course the Louisiana Journey. Over 50,000 hours of live music, dance, and drama were provided during the six months of the fair ' s stay in La. Interna- tional stars including Bob Hope, Air Supply, and Willie Nelson were on hand to welcome those attending. The World ' s Fair operated for 184 days opening on May 12 and continuing until November 11. Despite many financial prob- lems, the extravaganza was en- joyed by visitors from all over the world including Louisi- anians and yes, even North- western students. Most students who went had varying opinions as to their favorite attractions. Some en- joyed the Aquacade, a lavish, beautifully synchronized aquatic extravaganza. Others boasted of the spectacular view from the gondola cars that car- ried many 36 stories high above the mighty Mississippi River. And still there were others who weren ' t too impressed by the fair ' s attractions, but who en- joyed just being down in the magical city of New Orleans. Delicious foods cannot be left out as part of the World ' s Fair experience. From gumbos, fresh crawfish, and red beans and rice to delicious international delicacies, cuisine was not left out of the festivities. Held alongside the Mississip- pi River in downtown New Orleans, the theme of this world-class event was " The World of Rivers . . . Fresh Water as a Source of Life. " The 1984 World ' s Fair was indeed a great celebration. THE 1984 LOUISIANA WORLD ' S FAIP 1AY12-NOV 111984 270 M The gondola carried visitors 36 stories high above the mighty Mississippi.

ROBERT DUVALL received an Oscar for his role as a washed-up country singer who overcame alcoholism in the film " Tender Mercies. " SHIRLEY MacLAINE won for best actress and JACK NICH0L0S0N won best supporting actor as an eccentric pot- bellied ex-astronaut in " Terms of Endear- ment, " which also won the best picture award. The best supporting actress Oscar went to LINDA HUNT for her role in " The Year of Living Dangerously. " The STATUE OF LIBERTY celebrated her 98th birthday in 1984 and she began to show her age. The statue was worn from constant pummeling by windy, salt air and acid rain. The iron ribbing supporting the copper covering was badly corroded. A two-year restoration began in July 1984. It includes a new gold-plated torch. Chicago Bears ' WALTER PAYTON carries the ball on his way to setting the record for rushing. He broke the record of 12,312 yards held previously byjim Brown.

Camelot was on campus, and we held our North- west Louisiana Medieval- Renaissance Festival. There were movies, panel discussions, art exhibits, plays, colloquies, concerts, a week filled with ac- tivities culminating in the Renaissance Fair. President Orze proclaimed it Medieval-Renaissance Festival week and a Lord of Misrule, a different stu- dent each day was named and licensed to dismiss classes, to play pranks on the pompous and the powerful, and to jest and clown and add to the general merriment and carnival spirit. a Wanda Huhner, in an Elizabethan pose, participated in the fair.

Two knights displayed their skill with swords for the audience. 282 ff Patterned after actual historical fairs, this one also had knights and ladies, troubadours and minstrels, rogues and bawds, magi- cians and goliards, sorcerers and swordsmen, ale-sellers and ale-drinkers. There were tugs-of-war, fencing matches, witch-dunkings, stone throws, damsel chases, booths selling garlands, face-paintings, trinkets, boughs, letterings, food and drinks. There were demonstrations of horsemanship and jousting, and exhibits of furniture and paintings. President Orze, Lord of the Realm, met with Sir Gary Fields, Master of the Revels, on a field of honor. Tina Bacctgalopi and Patricia Coffey were ladies-in-waiting. - - - - Ellen Dollar, one of the Lords of Misrule, was accompanied by two clerics. Rowdy Low-Lifes! Medieval weapons and armor were displayed at the fair. One of the musicians paused between songs. Visiting members of the Society for Creative Anachronisms put on mock tournaments, Ivanhoe- style, and exhibited such medieval crafts as armor making and herb mixing, while local musicians played Renaissance music and energetic couples danc- ed and frolicked and welcomed the Spring. At the closing of the Fair, knighthoods and ladyships were bestowed on those whose participation had earned them the honor. The flags and banners were taken down, the heraldic crests removed, the music stilled, the swords sheath- ed, the revels ended. The campus returned to the mundane, modern world.

Copy Fitting forms!! Pictures!! DEADLINES !! Whew — I am glad all the pages are sent off to Taylor ' s! Somehow, in a messy office where red pens were always missing and long hours from 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. were spent, we managed to produce the 1985 POT- POURRI. There were many times I was not sure we were going to meet our deadlines, yet with a lot of hard work and dedication, we made it. In the 1985 POTPOURRI, we tried to present not only events from the past year, but also some of Northwestern ' s glorious past 100 vears. The staff worked very hard and overcame many obstacles throughout the year. I would like to thank the best staff an editor could ever have. I ' ll start with the one who saw me the most, my roommate — Terri. You encouraged me to keep going and were always there to listen to my problems. I could not have done all the research and Centennial articles without you. Thanks. Jan — I knew you could do it! If you ever feel you cannot do something, think of this past year, because if anyone can survive yearbook — they can do anything. Anita — You did a terrific job and gave sports a real turn around. You are the answer to a yearbook editor ' s prayer. Kristine — We ' ve came a long way since Ed ' s book. Thanks for your help and good luck with future books. Skippy — You did a great job with greeks. I am sure they were proud of their section. Good luck and keep an eye on those trains! Dwight — I could not have made it without you. I know you felt used and abused, but we did appreciate your dedication and hard work. Thanks for all the jokes and funny pictures — it kept us going. Susan, Charles and Warren — Thanks for all of your late night hours of hard work. All three of you did a great job. Celena, Billie, Robert, and Patricia — Thanks for running errands and doing the crazy things we asked. You guys helped us a lot. Mr. Minder, Shirley and Mr. Presson — The staff could not have made it without your helpful ad- vice and suggestions. Thank you for being around to listen and help us with our problems. To all my friends, Jeanne, Sharla, Angela, Anita, Carolina, Nona, to my fiancee, Ronald, and to my Mother — Thanks for being there when I needed to get all of the yearbook talk out of my system. Thanks for all of the confidence you had in me. Finally, I would like to thank all of the faculty members, students, and employees of NSU for their support and help. The POTPOURRI was compiled not only by the staff, but also by many other people associated with NSU. It takes a great deal of planning, organizing and hard work to produce a yearbook. As members of NSU, you should stop to think of the time and the effort everyone has given to bring you a yearbook that captures some of the great events and memories of the year. I would like to thank NSU for the experience and memories it has brought me. I am very proud to have been a part of the POTPOURRI and Northwestern State University. ( y III P OTPOURRI INDEX Abrusley.
