She evolves frotti individuality and totality, and offers to each, another year— and another chance. Each student remains an individual. Periiaps we look different and do the unpredictable, but we share one desire — we learn not to think and to feel alike, but to think, and to feel. We live both for our world, and in spite of it. We live a day so deep soul beautiful that it almost hurts— but any pain is forgotten in the joy of living moments too precious to go unshared. We live for these moments, and we make these moments live for us. Stetson IS an education in life. Ad- ministrators direct, traditions guide, and professors instruct — yet in tine final analysis, we are our own teachers. We learn the hardest lessons outside our classroom, and existence is a perpetual demand for our best. Sometimes the reward is even worth the effort. We learn to see in others our own image, and understand them the better for it. Our thoughts seek wisdom through silence, and we are left alone with our happiness together. Events seem both fleeting and timeless, and we learn to seek the constant. The sands of time shift endlessly, yet each life occupies a unique place and leaves its own particular mark. Even as we search for our meaning, the sun sets, leaving us to the ends we need to find. Another day belongs to us. mm.

It was the beginning of many new relationships, and the end of a coup- le. THE HATTER was a tyrant, demanding endless time, missed meals, late hours, and forgotten dates— it was a case of trying to fill needs opposite in every aspect, of striving to produce much more than was possible, and the office at- mosphere varied from exultation to defeat, from happiness to quarrels caused only by fatigue. Thank you, Sammy, Randy, Liza, Alan, Clara Margaret, Mary Esther, Robin, Fielding, Claire, Johnny, and Mr. Johnson— you all did more than your part. And T.D., thanks an awful lot— you hassled with the ads Sam- my and Randy sold, and with the darkroom, the year section, and Dale (who wandered in and was immediately nabbed for copy), and you were always there when you were needed. Keith and Horny— you were outrageous, and I loved it! I ' m more grateful than you could ever know, and there could have been no HATTER without you. Mr. Strickler, without your encouragement, I would have given up in October. Mr. Cooper— thanks for all the pictures I ripped off, thanks for being a pal, and thanks for the lunch! Dr. Morris and Dr. Crain— you both were a godsend. And Bob— thank you for everything. I tried. I really tried. And with all my heart, I hope the results elicit some approval, somewhere, from someone.

Freshmen were anticipating, curious, nervous, and outwardly self-assured, while upperclassmen were anticipating, bored, nervous, and outwardly self-assured. It seemed an impossibility to remember names, faces, or even your room number. There were hun- dreds of people, and the competition for everything from punch cups to classes was almost as intimidating as the length of the registration line. Minutes were crowded, but everyone had time for a smile. The end of the week found us exhausted, but happy with friendships we knew would last— and they did. ilniMi A FRANTIC WEEK during which we picked life-long friends; a week of introductions and smiles that never ended and a promise of brotherhood and sisterhood — this was Fall Rush. Tears and pride testified to hap- piness, and yet we wondered if the happiness were worth the hurt, it was the age-old controversy of dis- crimination versus the right to choose one ' s friends that involved many, and angered some. In spite of a national concern over the decline of the Greek system, sororities and fraternities seem an integral part of this university. With Stetson Greeks, it is a question not of survival — but of revival. INTERNATIONAL friends, familiarity with foreign cultures, and a second " native tongue " are only some of the ad- vantages of the Year Abroad Program. Chris Bigney, Bill Hinchliff, Marti Schick, Steve Ostoff, Lisa Weaver, Katie Pastorius, Sherry Prior, Carol Anderson, Roger Sells, and Steve Morton built pyramids in Madrid, while Jan Posnanski, Faye Dallas, Pat Turner, and Mary Prouty lived in Neuchatel, Switzerland, and Kathy Owens, Gayl Teichert, and Robert Fink stayed in Freiburg, Germany.

Bf 1 gl ' ■w B BEAUTIFUL but nervous, the contestants remained outwardly calm until the results were announced, and then the winners invariably shed the hap- piest tears imaginable. The Freshman Beauty Contest, spon- sored by Pi Kappa Phi, was won by Miss Tari Nix of DeLand, while Gail McWharter and Holly Hendrix were first and second runners-up. The annual Miss Hatter contest was a highlight of Green Feather week, and Miss Kay Gorton of Tallahassee proudly received the crown and roses. GREEN FEATHER was a time when we gave all we could, and promised more. Pan- cakes, fashion, parades, publicity, and donations helped us to more than make the goal of $6,001. Fielding Hight was chosen as Miss Green Feather, while Kristie Taylor and Colby Neville were first and second runners-up. Activities culminated in the traditional car- nival, during which students sold everything from fire-engine rides to weddings in an effort to help those less fortunate. FALL SPORTS of football and volleyball provided a release for stored-up energy and were the major source of conn- petition among fraternities. No sign of apathy showed in the enthusiastic crowds as some cheered, some cursed, and some waited eagerly for violence of any sort, and were seldom disappointed. Enmity generally ended with the games, as players sweated their way to the Commons for a less-than-inspiring meal. Green-league football was won by the Sig Eps In a play-off with the Pikes for the trophy, while the Pi Kapps were the winners of a bitter volleyball rivalry. STETSON SOCCER was coached this year by Dr. Gary Maris, and team co-captains were Robin Blanton and Bill Stepp. Bobby Baldwin and Bill Stepp were named to the ORLANDO SENTINEL All- State Team, while Baldwin also made All-Conference. Don Brown was chosen Most Improved Player and Bobby Baldwin was chosen Most Valuable Player, while Robin Blanton won the Most Team Spirit award. Hard knocks characterized a disappointing fall season, but players fought their way to spring victories. STETSON ROTC highlighted its formal dance with the crowning of Miss Paige Grant as the Military Ball Queen. Her runners-up were Kathy Benedict and Sandy Sayles. ROTC also awarded Distinguished Military Student badges to Larry Moyers, James Bitter, Harland Merriam, Earl Reeves, George Hanlon, John Bailey, Bill LaSalle, Eric Kolber, and Paul Rines. Academic achievement wreaths were awarded to Ritter, LaSalle, Kolber, Tom Broyles, Tom Hill, Louis Castro, Rod Guthrie, Roy Lasris, and Frank Maldonado, and Greg Grimmer won a four-year scholarship. STETSON WAS HONORED by the visits of two distinguished guests — concert pianist Charles Rosen and Congressman Lou Frey. IVlr. Rosen gave a brilliant per- formance that resulted in a thunderous ovation from the audience that packed Elizabeth Hall, while Congressman Frey was the guest of honor at a faculty and staff reception, and later spoke informally to students gathered by Holler Fountain. INVOLVEMENT AND ENTHUSIASM characterized the November Model U.S. Senate, as ninety-two students from twenty-eight colleges and un- iversities attended and were assigned to committees. The at- mosphere was almost Identical to that of the real United States Senate, as " senators " held party caucuses and senate sessions. The Model U.S. Senate Program was honored in a resolution passed by both Houses of the Florida Legislature during May, 1971. PROMINENT GUEST SPEAKERS were very much in evidence during Model Senate Week. U.S. Representative Bill Cliappell acted as Host Congressman, and introduced Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, the Senate Majority Whip. Governor Reubin Askew spoke for a Saturday luncheon, while Senator Lawton Chiles " presided " over the afternoon model session. An Awards Banquet held on Sunday was dedicated to former U.S. Senator Spessard L Holland, who died the week before. He was to have served as the program ' s Honorary Chairman, and all were saddened by his death. ON NOVEMBER 15, 1971, in the First Baptist Ciiurcli, Dr. Joiin E. Johns was formally inaugurated as the sixth president of Stetson University. Selections by the Stetson Concert Choir immediately preceded the formal investiture by Dr. Earl B. Edington, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, as with pride and dignity, Dr. Johns took office. A luncheon and a student banquet honoring Dr. and Mrs. Johns followed. GREEK WEEK was a time when everyone joined in activities thought to have been out- grown in grade school. Greeks balanced eggs on spoons, chased greased pigs, played leapfrog, gorged on pies, and nosed golf balls to frantic victory. There were also skits, a road rally, and a barbecue, where there was much enthusiasm but little food. A concert under the stars climaxed festivities. Zeta Tau Alpha and Omega Psi Phi won the frolics, while Bob Becker and Sara Edmondson were selected as Greek God and Goddess. p.. ' j In t «. ■ L f ' 1 r i .», t ■Mil p ■ f " r m k M . i ' . ' ,,_...

Of what scene The actors or spectators? —Percy Bysshe Shelley " THE CRUCIBLE " V " UNDER MILKWOOD " HIGH HOPES prevailed as the Hatter basketball team began Its first year In University Division competition. With five returning lettermen and six outstanding junior college transfers, Coach Glenn Wilkes had reason to be optimistic. However, in spite of some exciting overtime wins, by Christmas break It was apparent that the strong competition provided by such nationally ranked teams as Jacksonville University and FSU had proven too much for the smaller Hatters. CHRISTMAS came, celebrating the birth of a child who died to save the world— in the hope that the world would save itself for its children. During the traditional lighting of the Yule Log, eyes glistened in the firelight as all listened to the greatest story ever told. Hundreds of lights outlined the huge Christmas tree, while from every window, electric candles burned unfalteringly. A Christmas party followed, highlighted by a visit from a black Santa— and he was beautiful! iK- ' pt w Wl mk " t Yl f.4ii» -m- A Am grMt UiidS To spend too much time in studies is sloth. — Francis Bacon .- IP ff ' H THE STETSON HATTER basketball season was one for the records, as Ron Beal set a new Stetson All-Time Scoring record of 1,558 points over a four-year period, while the team suffered through its first losing season in more than fifteen years. Stetson placed well in several tournaments, and Co- Captain Jim Orr accepted the runner-up trophy for the first annual Hatter Basketball Classic from 1972 Basketball Queen Ellen Lewis, but the overall season record was a severe disappointment. Student in- terest declined sharply from its peak of the previous three years as more and more " home " games were played in Winter Park. By the end of the season, it was apparent that the promised on-campus gymnasium was desperately needed. Of all peoples, the Greeks have best dreamed the dream of life. — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Who hears music, feels his solitude Peopled at once, v -Robert Browning SWEAT POURED from those who played, while those who watched huddled close together in the icy gym. Intramural basketball ranked as one of the more popular spectator sports, as Minimester allowed everyone ample time for relaxation. The games were played with fierce enthusiasm, and even fiercer language, but it was hard to get really angry with someone who was having just as much trouble with his socks as you were, in the final competition, there was a heated debate over who had won, and it was even debated whether or not the game was over, but the Snakes ended up taking first place with the Sig Eps running a close second. THE ARCHERY TEAM, coached by Mrs. Sylvelin Thwing, took first place in botin the Mixed Team and the Wonnen ' s Team divisions, and second place in the Men ' s Team division in the Southeast Regional, while Ray Merrill, Guy Kinney, Betty Smith, and Sharon Peper made outstanding in- dividual showings. In the State Championships, Stetson again took first place in Mixed Team and in Women ' s Team, and second place in Men ' s Team, while Guy Kinney and Jay Kinney placed second and third in Men ' s Free Style, and Sharon Peper and Ann Osborn placed se- cond and third in Women ' s Free Style. Tina Reed won the Women ' s Beginner division, with Priscilla Hill placing second, while Roger Redlien won the Men ' s Beginner division. During an all-out campaign for travel funds, many students were brought to the realization that the archery team is probably one of the most successful and least affluent of the Stetson teams. CAMPAIGNING for the Democratic Party ' s Presiden- tial Nomination, Mayor John V. Lindsay parl ed his Primary Specials at the Stetson gates for an informal meeting with members of the un- iversity. Mayor Lindsay voiced his concern over drug abuse, but ad- vocated the repeal of present mari- juana laws — a popular sentiment with many students. After mingling with the crowd and shaking the numerous hands thrust at him, the Mayor continued his swing through Central Florida. THE FIRST ANNUAL Great American Airplane Contest was judged an unqualified success by the crowd that attended. Over one hundred entrants enjoyed national press coverage as they made valiant hurls on the specially constructed runway. A flight distance of over eighty-one feet enabled George Hancock to win, while Bobby Dean copped second place with his tissue paper model, molded while he was taking a shower. Steve Rawls won the " Wrong Way Corrigan " award by virtue of a flight of minus fifteen feet, with a flight path that took the plane straight backwards into the judging table. The event will be repeated in 1973. THE DEBATE TEAM, coached by Mr. Ronald Baugh, won fifteen trophies in competition with such schools as Emory, Wake Forest, The Citadel, and the Univer- sity of Florida, and ranked second in the State. Varsity Team members Anne Insley, Bob Bugg, Mark Cleeland, and Bob Manuel placed first and second in their division, while Novice Team members Cindy Norton and Pete Hooper placed third in the State. Diane Oilman placed third in Oral Interpretation, and Jerry Pricher represented Stet- son in the state finals in Persuasive Speaking. Senior Bob Bugg took first place speaker in the State of Florida, and represented Florida in two national tournaments. hfj .t.- ' J ) ' r ■iSi Wk h u ' i ' i . ry ii. .vi» i;v!?

The week-end honored retiring Professor Harold Giffin for his thirty-seven years of outstanding contributions to the Stetson School of Music. Activities included the traditional Homecoming Ball, and countless dinners held for each department, and several prominent speakers were in evidence, in- cluding Florida Supreme Court Justice Hal A. Dekle and Senator Henry " Scoop " Jackson. The Homecoming basketball game was played in the Winter Park High School gym, and the Hatters almost upset the No. 11 ranked FSU Seminoles before bowing 49-47.

Parents were treated to the student Follies, where there was something for everyone, from short- skirted flappers to selections from " C hicago. " The Stetson Orchestra gave a well-received concert, while an excellent rendition of " Fiddler on the Roof " played at Stover Theatre. 1 1 i m m. 1 THE 1972 PARENTS ' WEEKEND FOLLIES It is with life as with a play -it matters not how long the action is spun out, but how good the acting Is -Lucius Annaeus Seneca ' FIDDLER ON THE ROOF j Z ' Igat F THE STETSON FENCERS, after only three competitive seasons, have already established their superiority over all other North Florida fencers. This year the team entered both Collegiate and Open tournaments, and club President Steve Rawls traveled to Philidelphia to compete in fencing ' s most prestigious invitational tournament, the Cslszar. There he defeated a member of the U. S. Army ' s Pen- tathlete team. Later in the season, in the Gateway Divisional Cham- pionships, team captain Roy Lasris defeated every fencer from North Florida and won the Gateway Divisional Foil Championship, while Steve Rawls won the Divisional Three-Weapon Championship. Team members Mark DeVries, San- dy Ocnaschek, and Mike Sandin also turned in outstanding performances. THE HATTER BASEBALL team rated a winning season, 27-17, under the guidance of Coacin Jim Ward In a winning two-weel road trip, the Hatters swung their way to victories over such teams as Georgia State, Furman University, and Hillsdale College of Michigan. The Hillsdale game was called after five innings with the Hatters on top 22-0. The season ended as the Hats defeated sixth-ranked Jacksonville University at J. U., 15-7. Mike Kirchoff was named both the Most Valuable Player and the Outstanding Offensive Player, while John Colvard was named the Outstanding Pitcher and Roy Turner was given the Outstanding Effort award in team balloting. Senior Jim Orr received the Stetson Outstanding Athlete award for his achievements on both the varsity basketball and varsity baseball teams. »«li(«»«»«tSSf« »»s fi»«« " • ' -5 v.;£:sK,rT s i( " " I Jt%((LJk L -;f INTRA-MURAL SOFTBALL involved many, and injured quite a few. The guys fielded grounders, while the girls mostly grounded fielders in impossible collisions with coaches, umpires, base-runners, and fans. The umps seemed to make decisions based solely upon the ap- proval of the anything-but-silent majority, but tempers seldom flared as bad calls were taken in good spirit. The Pi Kapps won men ' s Softball, with the Snakes and Pikes running a close second, while the undefeated Indies won the girls ' Softball. Miss Jan Tidmarsh, head of Women ' s Intramurals, presented the Indies with the women ' s High Points trophy during the annual pool party, while Sigma Phi Epsilon received the coveted men ' s President ' s Cup in the Awards Assembly. " The black man qometh; dream deferred no more. " THE 1972 BLACK EMPHASIS WEEK THE PIT JAMMED, and a crowd jammed the Pit to hear Hot City in concert. Sunshine lights showed flashes of enthusiasm from the crowd of five hundred, as all joined hands and kept time to the music. After what seemed a lengthy intermission, R.E.O. Speedwagon took over the entertainment until approximately midnight, when the band stopped and other enter- tainment had to be found. 100 HOURS was the intended marathon volleyball goal, but players refused to quit until they had volleyed for 1 25 hours, breaking the previous world record of 106 hours. There were some tense times in the early mor- nings, but pleas for help were always answered. After the first continuous twenty-four hours, foot faults and net fouls received national press coverage. Over 10,000 points were played as the Christians tamed the Lions, raising hundreds of dollars for the Y.M.C.A. Appropriately enough, the marathon was sponsored by the Religious Life Council. CONSPICUOUS only for Its lack of glamour, it was a refuge for many who didn ' t seem bothered by tattered furnishings or makeshift curtains. The Brick Palace housed the Cellar ; Door— a place where sonie sang their hearts out, and others heard the music long after it was over. : £ - HEY, HEY, HEY, hey hey, hey hey hey, it was " Trash of the Thirties! " Marquis lights, fruit- filled hats, and music from the Thir- ties added atmosphere to the acts that never made it in Vaudeville. Ramonde " Chicl enman " LaRue, Dr. Cuthbert Blensby, Mr. Swami Mindman (recently escaped men- talist), and Delores Del Vino the " Spanish Gypsy Songbird Supreme " were enthusiastically and uncritically received, and many Stetson students made their stage debut. Bad jol es and worse flocks were applauded loudly by aspiring kazoo players, while balloons, party hats, and noise-makers helped ring in the New Year. It was trash, and the audience loved it! 1 It is art that makes life, makes in- terest, makes importance, and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process. — H. G.

Professor Harold M. Giffin was the guest of honor at the " Tribute to Prof " Homecoming banquet honoring his thirty-seven years on the music faculty. Dr. Marc Lovelace gave the annual " Last Lecture, " and his book, COMPASS POINTS FOR OLD TESTAMENT STUDY, was published. Dr. Ray V. Sowers ' biography, A TEACHER FOR ALL SEASONS, was published. Mrs. Marjorie Gilbert was chosen by Mortar Board as " Woman of the Year. " Mrs. Sara S. Jer- nigan ' s book, PLAYTIME: A WORLD RECREATIONS HANDBOOK, was published. Mr. Fred Messersmith was honored by the Florida Artist Group with a plaque and an honorary lifetime membership, and two of his paintings appear in the recently published EYEWITNESS TO SPACE. DEDICATED not only to excellence in education, but also to personal involvement and sincere friendship, Dr. Robert W. Loftin was chosen as the recipient of the 1972 HATTER dedication. No sign of apathy was apparent as over one thousand students expressed in writing their admiration for Dr. Lof- tin— as both an outstanding professor and a valued friend.
