Regents Fumble WMC Football
Western wasn't broken, but the Regents tried to fix us anyway. Because of political whims, the football program received short shrift. Despite pleas, explanations, and protests, the Regents refused to reinstate the WMC football program. Their reasons were financial: the programs at Tech and WMC were losing money; ergo, eliminate the program at Western and save SI30.000! What they forgot is that we prepare a high percentage of Montana's coaches. We also prepare our players to be successful in other careers. The traits they have developed, such as competitiveness, self-confidence, and teamwork, have made them successful both in and out of the classroom. What were the
effects of the cut upon the community and alumni, as well a upon the players, coaches, and fans? Many traditions have disappeared. WMC has had many winning teams, has set many individual as well as team records. Thanks to the Regents, a great Western and Montana tradition has disappeared. As of the spring of 1987 Western s football program is history. WMC's football program was a major part of this campus. It brought student who wanted to play, who wanted to coach, who wanted tc watch, who wanted to enjoy. Now. many have gone. Thanks a lot. Regents!

Volleyballers '"Set” Best-ever League Mark
The 6 conference record set by the Lady Bulldogs may not have been good enough for "Sports Illustrated;"' it ditl set the school's best seasonal record since the program’s start in 1980. Senior standouts CINDY BLN-NETT. I.ISA BAAS. DEB SATHER. and KATHY EATINGER were the backbone for the young scjuad. "Our combination of vets and newcomers emerged as the most competitive ever to represent Western," commented Coach TANI BREEN. "It assures a strong returning nucleus for 1987.” Cocaptain CINDY BENNETT was named to the All-Conference Team.

Alter a roller-coaster ride during the Frontier Conference playoffs, the 1966-87 Western Men's Basketball season came to a close with the Bulldogs capturing second place with a 10-6 conference record. The Bulldogs squeezed through some rough games to face Northern State College (SD) on championship night in Aberdeen. The tough Bulldogs just couldn't outscore Northern, losing 75-71 in double overtime. The Lady Cagcrs found the season extremely rough. With only two seniors, the Bulldogs depended greatly upon their young rookies. Freshmen BECKY STUCKY and I.OIS NYEN-Hl’IS saw plenty of action during the season. With outstanding potential on the bench, the Bulldogs are looking forward to next year.

Do We Have Class!
Class—a word of several connotations and meanings—certainly describes life at WMC. The students who comprised each class, freshman, senior, etc., came from varied backgrounds and areas. Singles, marrieds. single-parents, teenagers, the over 40s. commuters—all were represented.

The classes students took offered a great variety, from typical lectures to seminars to field trips to labs to individual studies. Modern facilities and latest in technology offered students at WMC a class education.

One usually thinks of seniors as taking it easy during the final year, but that wasn't the case with the Class of 1987. They actively campaigned for the college’s future and for continued statewide quality education by participating in activities— marches of support, trips to Helena—to keep Western open. They also were active in student government. Again this year they planned and prepared the Tuesday lunches. ANN MARIE GUIDONI, JIM HARDY, and MARK COPEN-HAVER were legislative interns. Seniors helped organize a business club and were active in others, such as Circle K and Art. They displayed their leadership in the classrooms, in the community, and across the state.

Students Learn from Experience
As sophomores, students in education took Exploratory Field Experience, during which they observed elementary and secondary classes in session. By the time they were seniors, they experienced teaching first-hand, some with trepidation, some with eagerness, and almost all with uncertainty. Student teaching was the capstone of their college experience. Standing in front of a classroom, student teachers experienced the power of the teacher, as well as the frustrations of motivating reluctant students. Western's students enjoyed a wide variety of experiences in classrooms across the state. Their experiences gave them a realistic picture of teaching.

Seniors 41Variety of Senior Classes Offer Enjoyment As Well As Learning
Students eagerly look forward to the time in their careers when they can begin concentrating on electives in their fields of interest. Seniors have that advantage. This year they had a varied selection of courses, ranging from Advanced Darkroom Technology to Environmental Psychology to Storytelling to Cold-Blooded Vertebrates. Seminars, internships, and research classes emphasized individual interests and needs. Seniors had the opportunity to take directed study. Not only did they take these courses during the regular school year, but also during the May Interim and summer school. Weekend workshops were popular.

Seniors -13Seniors Confident of Futures
1986-87 was a time of economic uncertainty in Montana. Graduating seniors wondered about their job prospects. Many of them sought employment in the rural schools of Montana. Western was still the major supplier of coaches. Those who received degrees in areas other than education had decisions to make, such as remaining in the state or leaving, continuing education to obtain more degrees, or accepting job offers. Seniors began to realize goals they had set many years ago. With feelings of happiness, apprehension, and confidence, they entered the "world of work.”

Who's Who 49Roomies
On-Campus living is an experience of college life that no one should miss. Residence halls (aka dorms) require a special type of person to appreciate them. The experiences with roommates and staff could make up a ten-year span of episodes of "Days of Our Lives” or "General Hospital." Togetherness took on new meanings when students met and lived with unknown persons. Room switchings, people switchings, and even exoduses became common place, but more common were the friendships that formed, that will last for lifetimes.

Computerese is WMC's second language. We became recognized statewide as having the most widely-distributed, most used, and probably most effective computer network of all six units of the university system. In addition to the computer lab in the basement of the library, students had access to computers in the Learning Center and in the residence halls. The Corvus Network enabled students to
use a plentiful supply of software on different types of computers. Computers were popular not only in the business curriculum. but also in science, composition, industrial arts, and education. Robotics became visible on campus. Besides Title HI. computers were provided by grants written by professors SCOTT DAVIS and FRANK ODASZ.

Underclassmen 53No Place Like Home
Dorothy, in 'The Wizard of Oz. expressed it best: There's no place like home. That doesn’t mean students can't or don't try to make a residence hall room look their rooms at home. Posters, TVs. furniture, pictures, stereos, records, pillows, tapes, more records, more tapes, and even more records and more tapes, even the favorite teddy or another stuffed toy made the rooms on campus something to write home about. Privacy was forgotten as a luxury to be remembered. A closed door was just a temptation to see what was on the other side. With coed halls, one had to
dress to go to the shower and then to come back, for who knew what might be lurking in the halls.- For the lucky students who had apartments, or better yet. who lived at home, ahhh, what lives they led! Home cooking (3 times a day), clean clothes, fresh-smelling linen, nicely-made beds, and privacy— such sacrifices some made to forsake residence-hall living. But there was something about on-campus living that grew on some people, for they intend to live in the residence halls at least 3 more years!

Underclassmen 57Reaching Out
"Reach out and touch someone." Teenagers and college students have made that their anthem. However, this year presented some problems. In November, a number of students in the residence halls and married student housing complained that they were unable to make long-distance calls. The fault lay with a Helena microwave station. Sharing rooms made privacy a little difficult for the special calls. During spring semester, the On-Campus Living Office discovered some cases of long distance fraud by students using the phone system. Some students allegedly dialed person-to-person or used operator assistance and were charged only 50c for each call. Students who failed to report their abuses were subject to disciplinary action and or criminal charges. Approximately $3000 in unpaid bills were involved.

What would campus life be like without complaints' What receives its greatest share? Almost all students complain about cafeteria food. After all, what can beat Mom s home cooking? Students at WMC were no different as the food service provided many complaints during fall semester. Cost, meal plans, portions, and menus were of concern. With the popularity of the Tuesday luncheons, evening banquets, and the perceived expensiveness of meals, students wanted more options. Many, not just football players, objected to the no-seconds policy. One piece of meat and one helping of veggies were not enough to satisfy the appetities of the active students. The lack of quality and variety of the menus were also of concern. Students w ere more satisfied spring semester when the food service implemented some changes.

"Two can live as cheaply as one.” That must be true, for the numbers of married students have increased each year. Married student housing units were filled. No longer was it only the wife sending the husband through school; now it was common for the husband to send the wife through college. Scheduling was a problem for some — of time, of classes, of family, of togetherness, of being alone. However, the final goals were worth the minor irritations.

Loans, scholarships, and grants were not the only ways students paid for college. The ever popular part-time job kept many a student at WMC. Some students were fulltime workers and part time students. Fast food places like the A W. Taco John’s, and Dairy Queen, soon to be joined by the Pizza Hut, employed college students as did many of the motels. Students found jobs at department stores, gas stations, supermarkets, and video places. Rare was the college student who did not have some type of job.

To retain students, WMC offered new classes and programs. Stud) skills were revamped in order to meet the needs ot new students. As part of Title III. faculty and aministrators from disciplines such as athletics, music, and student services taught study skills, reading, and composition. Student paraprofessionals were used in study skills as assistants. Paras were also used in the Learning Center.

When you go to WMC. you don't have to worry about parking stickers." One does have to worry about parking, though. This year in the middle of fall semester new regulations came into effect, regulations that soon students and faculty began to grumble about. Gone were some of the best parking spaces In the old gym. A visitors' parking area was set aside east of Main. For those who ignored or couldn't read the no-parking signs, extreme measures were used. A barrel stating "I'm waiting for you" with a chain attached advertised some poor soul who parked where he was not supposed to. To add insults, the barrel was chained to the vehicle. To remove both, one had to pay a fine. It didn't take long for most people to avoid the areas, but parking spaces soon became at a premium.

Underclassmen 71The National Student Exchange (NSE) Program began its first year at WMC.

Three students made their dreams come true when they attended WMC this year. TOM KUMAKAWA. Tokyo. Japan; TATSUE TAKEI. Nagano. Japan; and CRYSTAL JOHNSON. Junction City. Kansas, were exchange students.
TOM was a returning student in 1986-87. 1 le was a graduate of Dokkyo U. in Japan. His main goal is to be a great artist. In April he exhibited 28 pieces. The collec-
tion included watercolors. oils, and air-brushing with acrylic paints.
TATSUE TAKEI is from an area similar to Montana s western part. She lived with host families for most of the year. Her favorite classes were in Natural Heritage, for she enjoyed backpacking trips to Yellowstone and excursions to Mexico and Utah. TATSUE plans to become a tour guide when she returns home.
CRYSTAL JOHNSON, a sophomore, was the first National Exchange Student to attend WMC. She had previously been attending Ft. Hays State University in Kansas. She chose WMC because of the winter activities and the scenery. Being at Western influenced her to consider a teaching career. She planned to return to WMC in the fall.

Just as the national trend is for more students over 25 to attend college, so. too. arc more nontraditional students attending WMC. They became mote visible and demonstrative this year. They became involved in the operations of the college as they ran candidates for the Senate, with I.EE ANN RILEY winning. They sponsored a float in the Homecoming-Parade. They were helpful in getting an area in the SUB set aside for brown-baggers. They were in the forefront of activities to keep Western open.
The spring of 1986 several students and PROF. JOAN CLARY discussed ways to improve communication among the administration, faculty, and students. The result was the successful Tuesday 99c luncheons JOANN NELSON and ANN MARIE GUIDONI organized them for the 1986-87 year. DR. TREADWAY used them as forums to tell of the developments concerning elosure metger. The luncheons were times for students, staff, and faculty to mingle and discuss mutual concerns and become better acquainted.

Personnel in Campus
WMC personnel took part in every aspect of campus life. They costumed themselves, they embarrassed themselves, they spent time and money on the campaign to save Western, they played, and they worked. At WMC. it was common to find teacher and student together in the SUB conversing as equals. In the classroom they were still equals, each finding the answers to problems. Most importantly, they became friends, not just during school years, but after graduation, too.

They really came through when they were needed in order to help Western s fight for survival. They manned phones, wrote letters, marched at Helena, and used their political clout by calling in favors to persuade legislators and regents to keep Western open and thriving. Some donated money to the cause. Besides raising funds and fighting battles, some emeriti continued teaching on a part-time basis. Some became involved in organizations like the Foundation, Associates, and Friends of Western. Western s emeriti were really visible and appreciated.

Honorees 91Western Offers Everything but Boredom
Anyone who said WMC had nothing to offer but boredom was mistaken as clubs and organizations offered extra curriccular activities to education the complete person. The Art Club provided opportunities to further interests. Kappa Delta Pi kept active, holding its annual spring initiation and offering a scholarship to the outstanding sophomore who intends to continue in teacher education. BECKY SORENSON was this year's recipient. The Music Company furthered the cause of music in the community. WMC maintained its chapter of the Music Educators National Conference. Industrial arts and business clubs were active and promoted their interests. Circle K continued its active image on campus as they conducted moneyraising projects. M Club sponsored its annual smoker. The Rodeo Club was active as were Spurs, who served as ushers and ticket takers at play, concerts, and sporting events.

Entertainment was not the only purpose to clubs and organizations. Some, like educational fraternities, fostered professional growth. Others, like Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and the Catholic Campus Ministry, served the religious needs of the students. The IVCF was a non-denominational religious organization which met every Monday evening, with the members enjoying activities such as volleyball followed by fellowship. The Catholic Ministry was an outreach of the Catholic Church. Its goal was to serve the needs of young adults. Both semesters it sponsored retreats at St. Rose's Church.

One of the programs sponsored under the Title III Grant which WMC received in 1986 is the new Learning Center. Under the direction of MRS. ETHEL HAWKINS, the Center offered services to all students; faculty also took advantage of the computer facilities. Student paraprofessionals assisted any who requested help. The Center incorporated several computer programs and other teaching aides to assist students in improving writing, reading and comprehension, and mathematics skills.

It increased the teaching staff to five, along with 13 work-study students. The Center previously was licensed for only 60 students, but increased demand and an implementation of an Early Childhood Education Program required changes. Children of students A r,ME — Left:JANET DAVIShas

With the recreational facilities in the Dillon area, students had access to beaches (Clark Canyon Dam), mountain ski resorts (Maverick), and cliff diving.

Western recorded its second largest enrollment in the Fall of 1906, an increase of 8.4 over 1985. with a total count of 1051. The mood was optimistic: Title III was progressing satisfactorily; quality faculty, staff, and programs were in full gear. However, just as the area is subject to earth tremors, with the Big One expected any moment. WMC began to tremble. Higher education was to bear the brunt of some of the state's fiscal problems by undergoing cuts. The tremors of cuts of money and programs soon gas-e way to rumbles of closure, change, or merger. The community and alumni rallied. Students cried "SOS": Save Our Schools. They organized to carry their message across the state: Help education learn and prosper.

X'hat started out as tremors reached quake levels. After the dust settled. Western was still intact, but there were some casualties, cracks, weakened foundations. Yet there also was an undercurrent of optimism. The results of the merger follow: Western will retain its separate identity, budget, and local administration. It will continue to offer its own Bachelor degree programs in teacher education; however. after 1990 it will not offer Bachelors degrees in Business Administration. American Studies, or Natural Heritage. A new program of Tourism and Recreation will be developed. Western will keep its land-grant status, endowments, scholarship programs, and the federal funds pledged to current and new programs. By July 1988 WMC will have a provost who will report to the president of the University of Montana at Missoula.

However, Western is not just the faces of the students and faculty, administrators, staff. It is also the face of comedy and of tragedy, of culture and of corn, of entertainment and of education.
