fable of confenfs
a new seven-story steel and glass monument to this administration ... a brand new earth sciences building . . . more grants for oceanography ... a new forestry complex . . . same old hassels
concerts, fewer and farther between . . . politics recognizes the Silent Majority for four more . . . ASOSU student government gives us the People's Park
the OSU marching band highlighted this year's football season . . . matmen take PAC-8 championships . . . our basketball team beat USC in the most thrilling game of the season . . . more students participated in the intramural program this year than in all the varsity sports combined
mugs . . . mugs . . . mugs and more mugs . . . the dorms decided to be creative . . . color for the graduating class ... a few less Greeks than before . . . the coops are the same as always
activity rosters — no more blocking stairwells with clubs . . . everybody gets their name in your book at least once . . . the BEAVER — more than less of an effort
Maybe something here is . . . worthwhile.
You can't divide years into volumes; not any more than you can determine when a year ends ... or begins. There's a continuum to life that defies separation or segregation. I like to believe that this is what makes each day worth waking up to.
I'd like to introduce you to the 197T Oregon State University BEAVER. It is a personal, student-orientated yearbook. It is a book built on the expressions of individuals, for I feel that in this complex society we may realize our self-actualization only through individual expression within the seemingly irrational commonalty.
Things like politics, religion and science, change in our society and the arts concern each and every one of us in some way. And maybe it's time we captured the essence of these so you can remember OSU and the time you spent here.
At times it might seem difficult or impossible to see the worth of OSU. This university has become a multiversity — a sprawling, computerized institution of the masses. The emphasis often seems more on budgets, cost analysis and allocation rather than on the creation of a truly scholarly campus.
But times change and so do attitudes. People are beginning to realize that there is more to education, and life, than a piece of paper with the Oregon State University seal on it. Our ideas, criticisms and demands may someday influence others to help initiate needed changes. We wanted to help you change the world. Maybe it sounds outdated to say change starts with us as individuals — but I know of no other way.
I feel the things here in this BEAVER are a means of conveying ideas to others. There's a lot of words in this BEAVER and I hope you read them, because . . . maybe something here is . . . worthwhile.
