Stespean sounds suspiciously like thespean — at least the first time you hear it. And if you ' re of a vaguely curious na- ture, you probably wonder, once you figure out that you ' re not talking about the drama depart- ment, where in the world the yearbook came by such an un- usual name. Wonder no more. In 1920, Union College students published their first yearbook, ap- propriately titled the Fledgling. As you know, a Fledgling is a newly born bird. The yearbook received its name with great hopes that it would grow into something, " per- haps ' a Cardinal or Mocking Bird, " according to a history of the col- lege entitled Union College 1879- 1979. The following year, the 1920-21 yearbook staff was faced with the responsibility of coming up with an appropriate, permanent name for their charge. It was Violet Humfleet, that year ' s associate editor, who hit upon an idea that garnered wide support and, eventually, became the book ' s permanent name — Stespean. The 1920-21 staff realized that its choice of a name for the year- book should pay tribute to those people whose early contributions made Union College possible. At Miss Humfleet ' s suggestion, the staff chose the name Stespean, which is a combination of the first three letters of the two 1920 dorms with an-an suffix thrown in for good measure. In 1920, Ste- phenson was the men ' s dorm and Speed Hall was the women ' s. Just think — if we renamed the annual today, following the 1920 prece- dent, its name could be Pfeste (pronounced fiesty!). So that ' s the scoop on how the book got its name. Early copies of the yearbook are available for viewing in the library, and the 1987 Stespean staff commends those books to you, as well as this one. Ed de Rosset To The Man Without Whom This Enterprise Would Not Be Possible Ed de Rosset Dean of Students Quite literally, the 1987 Ste- spean would not be with us today were it not for the support and assistance giv- en by Dean of Students Ed de Rosset. He helped us solve the problem of what to do about a darkroom that stayed nearly 100 de- grees too warm to keep chemicals good by helping us design and build a new darkroom in cooler quar- ters. He helped us deal with personnel problems by leading cooler heads to prevail. He ' s saved many a layout by having that photo one of us blew or forgot to take. He offered encouragement and a smile when there seemed to be no hope and even less reason to smile. He used wit to diffuse tense situations. He cared and nurtured us throughout the year. We believe this dedication is a fitting tribute to a man who has been here but two short years, yet has made all of us wonder how we ever got along without him. As Yet Another School Year Begins During the early days of spring, instead of rushing from one building to another braving the cold weather, students take time to enjoy the warm weather and the beautiful signs that prove spring has finally arrived. Above, enroute to class is Bernard Culliver, a freshman from LaBelle, Florida. Valerie Shields studies intensely in the Abigail E. Weeks Memorial Library.

At about 8:30 p.m.? Union was a good place to be that night. " Backwoods Expedition " was back on campus. Even though some technical difficulties were present, the band was as good as ever. Possibly better! The group consists of six members: Ronnie Vanover, Carl Brown, Drew Henderson, Jerry Pennington, Dan Meadows and Jack Brooks. All of them, except Drew, live in McCreary County, Ky. Drew is from Flat Lick which is here in Knox County. The songs they perform range from those of the Eagles to Alabama to ZZ Top to the ever popular Hank Williams Jr. All six band members attended Union last year. Ronnie, Drew and Dan attend Union again this fall. All three are juniors and majoring in Music Education. However, if the group keeps improving as it has been. Union may lose the remaining three student members to professional music. Watch out Nashville!! (but, guys, don ' t forget your friends left here at Union!) 1g BULLDOG The 1986 Union College Football Team, 7-3 for the season, moved up the NAIA Division II top 20 for the second year in a row advancing from the 20th to the 18th slot. Although the honor was not enough to gualify the Bulldogs for post season play. Head Coach John Ross said that, " It is guite an accom- plishment for our young players and it speaks well of the determination and intensity that they showed during the season. " The Bulldogs also placed eight players on the District 32 All- District team: tight-end Pete Greene of Prestonsburg, Ky., wide receiver Albert Pellegrino of Columbus, Ga., offensive guard Tim Wilkerson of Owensboro, Ky., defensive lineman Burley Burkhart of Brodhead, Ky., defensive lineman Tommy Pace of Paducah, Ky., linebacker John Luttrell of Harlan, Ky., Oefensive back C.J. Westerman of Barbourville, Ky., and Matt Quick, punter of Ft. Myers, Florida. Quick also finished the season rated fourth in the nation in Division II play as punter. T.C. McClish of Bradenburg, Ky., also ranked 10th in the nation in kick off returns for the Bulldogs. Ross said that, " I hope this will mark the beginning of a winning tradition here at Union College, but we have to use caution here because the work, dedication, and intensity has only begun. We have to start nowln preparing for the intense competition that we will face next year as we start play in our own conference, The Bluegrass conference. " Two outstanding victories were scratched out during the season. The first one occured when the Bulldogs pulled a mighty upset over Wilmington college, 9th ranked in the nation in the NAIA Division II play coming into the contest. The fiesty Bulldog team came away with the 25-20 victory. The final game of the season was against rival Cumberland College. The Bulldogs managed to slosh through the rain and mud to a 17-10 victory in Williamsburg. 20 MANIA 1986 BULLDOGS The members, managers, and trainers of the 1986 football team are, front row, from left: Tommy Pace, Paducah, Ky.; John Luttrell, Harlan, Ky.; Matt Quick, Ft.

But, with the new conservatism of the 1980s, ROTC is making a come- back on college campuses across the nation. Under the leadership of Captain DeWayne Brewer, who also is responsible for ROTC at Eastern Kentucky University, Union College adopt- ed the ROTC program for the first time in 1986-87 and met with much approval and suc- cess. 28 Pumpkin LidLiJLiJti LUJLiJ Contest Bryan Huskie Concert " Pretty Darn Good Stuff ... " As a Pre-Halloween treat, the Union College students were presented with a night of great entertainment. The evening got underway with the annual pumpking carving contest as the contestants scraped their way to success. Photo left: pictured left to right are: Janis Shelton, Frank Newman, Pat Burke, Mary Smith, Tim Gurren, Maria Alvira, and Tracy Howard. The second event of the evening featured entertainer Bryan Husky. The reaction of the student body to the well performed concert was clearly evident in all of the foot pattin ' and on the smiles of the crowd ' s faces. As one student bluntly put it: " It was pretty darn good stuff!! " 2S HALLOWEEN As the Autumn wind blew the dead crumbled leaves through the air, as black cats squalled and frightened children lay in their beds with the covers pulled high over their heads, the Union College community made its way in a solemn vigil to the Student Center, but once inside all forgot it was the creepiest night of the year, and the Halloween Dance emerged as one of the most successful of the year. The costumes ranged from scary and traditional vampires to creative jelly beans, crayons, and ev- erything in between. All horror-filled ideas that come with the night were forgotton as dancing and excitement filled the building which was packed to full capacity. With the clock striking the witching hour, the wind howling through the trees, and everyone watching behind them afraid of what might be lurking in the darkness, the dance came to an end — the end of anoth- er fabulous, unforgetta- ble event at Union College.

The program considers the changing patterns of culture, society and politicial economy within the region. It is a good experience for the students, for they learn more than a grade could ever show. In the Fall of 1986, twelve students, the largest number in many years participated in the Appalachian Semester. They were: Cyndilyn Alcott, Washingtonville, N.Y.; Kim Allin, Barbourville, Ky.; Andy Joe Dunn, Corbin, Ky.; Karen Henfling, Bel-Aire, Md.; Debbie James, Orinda, Ca.; Derk Koehn, Weimer, Tx.; Mary Lou Pursiful, Barbourville, Ky.; Jen Rubin, Suffern, N.Y.; Stacy Stoerkel, Arlington, Va.; Rhonda Williams, Barbourville, Ky.; Rick Witmer, Liverpool, Pa. Tne director of the Appalachian Semester program is Jim Cox. 32 " The Little Foxes 99 ;fjj |:| ] n ' r3 ! fl " " H BHak ' ■- ' ■ d il Ilb b ' J The Cast Lillian Hellman ' s play focused on a sibling rivalry that involved greed and a struggle for survival. Sounds a lot like " Dallas " , doesn ' t it? Oscar Hubbard, played by Anthony T. Pierce, was like a younger J.R. Ewing — very domineering and greedy. Mark Clifford portrayed Horace Giddens in a manner much like Jacque Ewing, sensitive yet strong, holding fast to his opinions. Birdie Hubbard, wife of the domineering Oscar, could have passed for Sue Ellen. Both Birdie and Sue Ellen have been abused emotionally and physically. Katrina Belcher, through convincing acting, made the audience feel Birdie ' s pain. Alexandra Giddens, played by Karen Smith Kidd. is like Lucy Ewing — innocent to the world at first yet later she matured. Dr. Bob Swanson showed us Ben Hubbard in a true Cliff Barnes manner, stray and greedy for himself and manipulative to the end. Mark Sizemore played Cal, a servant, like a true Ewing servant — loyal. Addie, played by Miranda Stroud, was also a servant but had a bit of Carrington in her. She liked to put her two cents worth in one the subject at hand. Jim Ricotta Jr. showed us a true Ewing business dealer in Mr. Marshall. Les Hubbard, played by Jackey Cox was the son Of Oscar and the young J.R. type. Possibly Les is another off-spring of J.R. He has an unprincipled manner, yet unlike J.R., he is weak.

Anthony Pierce, Glenna Brock Estes, Dr. Bob Swanson 33 PROFILE ?JZ When I first arrived at Union, I wasn ' t really sure what to expect. I had heard good and bad about the school, but I decided to give it a shot. And I ' m glad I did. I like to get out and meet people. Here, that ' s easy to do. People here are very friendly, and that means a lot to a person like me. Not only have I made new friends here, I have be- come involved in several campus activities, like the- atre. Fall semester, I auditioned for a part in " The Little Foxes. " I got it and played a mean, hateful person — something which I ' m not. Having to hit " my " wife on stage was extremely hard. I didn ' t want to hurt her, but I wanted the scene to look real. Being selected to wear the Union Bulldog mascot suit was another of my activities. I ' m glad I did that, too, I ' m proud to support our school on such a high level, especially since there can be only one mas- cot. School work has kept me almost as busy as my activities. Being a pre-ministerial student has had its ups and downs, but I ' ve kept with it. Some people can ' t seem to accept the fact that you can be a Christian and have fun, too. They seem to think that a pre-ministerial student has to be a goody two- shoes. I ' m in big trouble if that ' s the way it is. I ' ve got some pretty unorthodox ways of doing things, but I know where I ' m going and I know that God is there with me. If people know just one thing about me, I wish they could know that I am a pre-ministerial student and proud of it. In the future, I hope to become a fulltime Methodist minister and to live the rest of my life for God. Anthony Pierce In closing, I want to thank everyone at Union Col- lege — staff and students — for making my fresh- man year a good one. I want to leave you with this special poem: SPECIAL " Special " is a word that is used to describe something one-of-a-kind like a hug or a sunset or a person who spreads love with a smile or kind gesture. " Special " describes people who act from the heart and keep in mind the hearts of others " Special " applies to something that is admired and precious and which can never be replaced. " Special " is the work that best describes YOU. YOU is everyone at Union College. 14 PROFILE Being an out-of-state student from Denver, Colorado, by way of Rio Hondo, Texas, drew many guestions about my reasons for attend- ing college in Barbour- ville, Ky. There were many reasons for my decision to attend Union. The college ' s religious structure was the sin- gle most significant factor. The comfortable size of Union and my desire to get a fine education was a second, yet influential, reason. I anticipated that the professors would help me through what I knew would be a long and lonely freshman year. I was surprised by the attention and help I received — it made Union seem all the more attractive. I know if I ever need assistance, I am welcome and encour- aged to talk to my professors and will receive their undivided attention. Norma Huerta The Kentucky natives have been extremely hospi- table as well. They have helped me become ac- customed to living in another part of the country and have treated me very kindly. It is such a terrific feeling to meet people from all walks of life. Many who attend Union are from various Kentucky coun- ties and they take great pride in their hometowns. On the other hand, there is a handfull of students who are not Kentucky-bom. They, too, take pride in their homes, just as I do. The Denver Broncos may not have won the Super Bowl, but I ' ll still root for them next year! My hometown lies between Denver and Greeley, Colo. — good ole Brighton, Colo, where I was born and raised. In my home lives a family to whom mo- rality and ethics are of ultimate imoortance. Four handsome, over-protective older brothers, very strict parents and two older, beautiful sisters who " taught me the ropes " and a loving brother-in-law consider my life priceless and have successfully kept me from straying in the wrong direction. Coming halfway across the nation, hundreds of miles from my home to Barbourville was my first step into " adulthood, " and a very scary one at that. None- theless, I am very happy with my decision because I met the most wonderful people I have ever known. One could say that coming to Union has been a wonderful experience for a 19-year-old girl. So, here in eastern Kentucky, I have made my new home for the major part of the next four years. I am very pleased with my choice and very proud of my life. A great feeling of independence has set in and yet, with happiness, I have to admit that the fact that homecooked meals have been scarce has made this Coloradan homesick plenty of times. 15 FRESHMEN Toni Alvis | 1 f , Cynthia Antle W Linda Bates M v ;«j| Jackie Blackburn X ' i Tammy Bledsoe Michael Clark Deborah Coffman Mark Cook Joseph Gulliver Jackie Dwyer Center photo: Nicole Samples, David Grimm, and Kelly Long stop to pose for a STESPEAN photographer.

How To Survive A Weekend Alone At Union Almost every student will have to do it at one time or another. Al- though they may not want to, at least once, they just may have to spend a weekend . . . ALONE . . . at Union College. From personal experiences of some of the stu- dents who have Pecome experts in the area — the RamPo ' s of Lonliness — here are a few " sure- fire " ways to help one survive such a weekend. The most freguently used method is everyone ' s favorite: Eating. One way to do this is to spend all night at Druthers sitting in a win- dow seat watching the high school students cruising up and down the street while you order french fries every 15 minutes. Another idea is to Puy four half- gallon cartons of vanilla ice cream and two Pottles of syrup. Go through the first two cartons and one of the Pottles of syrup on Friday night. Another food favorite is using all your money emptying the vend- ing machines in the dorm. The second survival method is to spend the entire weekend watching T.V. One starts Friday night Py watching " Miami Vice " — dream of Don Johnson — watch the news — dream of Don Johnson — watch " Night Tracks " — dream of Don Johnson . . . Sat- urday, spend all morning watch- ing cartoon reruns. Later in the afternoon, watch every footPall game that is Proadcast — al- though you know nothing aPout the game, Put enjoy watching those cute guys in those tight lit- tle pants. There are various other things you could do to pass the time: You could spend all weekend in the Student Center playing pool, even Py yourself if you have to. Run around the track hoping some really cute guy just hap- pens to Pe running and also spending the weekend alone at Union. Spend all your money playing Ms. Pac Man. Sit on the cafeteria steps and count how many females exit Stephenson Hall — after 12 a.m.! Leave a potato chip on the floor of your dorm room and see how many minutes it takes a roach to carry it off. So, you see, it really isn ' t that Pad. With these helpful ideas, anyone could survive a weekend alone at Union College . . . and live to tell aPout it!!! 40 Tim Gurren sights a shot. Photos — Clockwise, at left — " That ' s a ten.

' mi I c 41 METHODIST W E 3ishop Paul Andrews Duffey with President Phillips Below, the Union College Singers The Bishop Paul Andrews Duffey 42 HERITAGE E K One of the events of the fall se- mester highlighting the Union Col- lege affiliation with the Unitea Methodist Church was Methodist Heritage Week which was held November 16-19, 1986. This event was in conjunction with the 100th aniversary of Union ' s pur- chase by the Kentucky Confer- ence of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1886. The week ' s events were begun on Sunday evening with Bishop Paul Andrews Duffey, episcopal leader of the Louisville area of the United Methodist Church, speak- ing on how truth " makes us free " as people. Duffey quoted the famous passage " You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free " John 8:32. From this text, the Bishop said that at Union " those who graduate are made free from the world of igno- rance. " Duffey ' s remarks were well received by the capacity crowd as he paved the way for the week ' s other special speak- ers. Union College was very fortunate to have Dr. Ellsworth Kalas, senior minister of the Church of the Sav- ior, United Methodist Church, Cleveland, Ohio, as the main speaker for the week. Kalas came to Union with a well-known reputation as a speaker, author and minister. Other ' s involved in the week ' s programming are listed in order of appearance: Dr. Ted Nicholas, song leader; Dr. Harold Tatnar, pi- anist; the Rev. Jim Powell, cam- pus minister; Dr. Milton Townsend, faculty lecturer; Dr. Charles Killian, dramatization of Francis Asbury; Barbourville High School Choir; Ms. Melanie Onnen who gave dra- matizations of Mary and Susanna Wesley; the Union Colege Sing- ers; Dr. Gordon Marigold and Mrs. Kay Dawn McFarland, organists; Knox Central High Choir; and the Handbell Choir of the First United Methodist Church of Barbourville, Ky, Ms. Melanie Onnen 41 PROFILE Y tOJLL. After being a quasi- commuter for two years, I became a campus resident in Union ' s Stevenson Hall for the 1986-87 aca- demic year. I called myself a auasi-com- muter because I lived just a block away from campus and was a part of nearly all organized campus activities while still having all the comforts of home, like Mom ' s cooking and my own bath- room. I mentioned being a part of most of the orga- nized events on campus, but after living on campus for a year, I realize that most of the excitement and fun comes from unorganized, spur-of-the-moment activities which nearly every commuting student misses out on. An example of this is the time before Christmas break when small bands of pranksters from downstairs Stevenson made raids into the up- stairs of both A and B wings. This resulted in the upstairs residents posting guards at all doors, deny- ing entrance to non-residents of the floor. The eve- ning ' s events culminated with a tag-team, upstairs verses downstairs wrestling match on the front lawn. Every commuter missed this spectacle, but the residents of Stevenson could hardly keep from being involved. During the Christmas season, the residents (Animals) of upper A-wing showed their spirit by erecting their own Christmas tree. Its decorations included every- thing from old rubber ornaments to pizza boxes and soft drink cans. Each item was graciously donated by the residents. To top off the tree, there was an angel who, with her wings spread in true angelic fashion, reminded us all of " Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men. " These are just a few of the more memorable events which have transpired at Stevenson since I moved into my " closet " in August 1986. Oh, I forgot to tell you about the " closet. " That ' s my enormous 80- square-foot room. It is as wide as the hallway in lower A-wing, has double windows, a 10-foot ceiling and a fantastic heater (that seems to work year round). The first question everyone asks about my room is, " How do you live in such a small space? " John Chamberlin Then they finally admit, " I like this room. I wonder if I could get it after you leave next year? " In closing, I would like to say that I have enjoyed being a campus resident and being away from home for the first time. I have enjoyed all those spontaneous activities that never quite got sched- uled on the dean of students ' events calendar. WINTER Mascot Brings Children ' s Laughter by Paula Whitaker " He who pleases children will be remembered with pleasure by men. " — James Boswell Children ' s eyes light up at the mere sight of it. It brings joy into the kids ' hearts, and it brings mem- ories of a remarkable little boy to all who knew him. The Union College bulldog mascot uniform was donated to the school in memory of Donnie Lawson, the seven year old son of Don and Myr- lyn Lawson who was fatally injured in a car acci- dent while the family was vacationing in Florida this past summer. Tina Noonan remembers Donnie as a wonderful child. The little boy loved sports at Union College, and although he was only seven, he was always very into the game and knew a lot of the players. " He could imitate James Anderson hitting a free throw perfectly, " said Noonan, who went on to say Donnie had a small basketball goal hung in his room. " He could hit it (the shot) just Hike him. " He also made a scrapbook for the Union basketball standout who later went pro when he was draft- ed by the Portland Trailblazers. Likewise, Donnie was close to many other athletes at Union, shar- ing special friendships both players and child treasured. So, for Donnie, the bulldog is a perfect tribute. " I don ' t think Donnie would want anyone to be saa, " said Noonan. " Something like this is what he would want to be done. " Prior to Donnie ' s death, a fund had been started by the U.C. Women ' s Club with the goal of pur- chasing a bulldog mascot for the college. After Donnie ' s death, it was decided to dedicate the mascot in his memory, for it is something every- one agreed the child would have loved. The fund quickly reached the $600 goal needed to pur- chase the uniform with helpful contributions from Jerry Garland, Rob and Tina Noonan, Russell Pope, and Don and Myrlyn Lawson. The Union College Bulldog stands for something more than just an ordinary mascot. It stands for the innocent wonderment and fascination of childhood and one exceptional little boy who lives on within the hearts and the expressions of the children ' s faces that shine with love and hap- piness whenever the mascot is near. As laughter of delighted children fills the air, Donnie will be remembered now and always in the minds and hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him. 46 47 Union Reggie McLeroy, Greg Wimberty.

The Bulldogs started out the schedule winning their first three games. But then the turning point in the season came on Dec. 1st, when Cumberland shocked Union at the buzzer. From that point on, the Bulldogs struggled to stay above the .500 mark. A six-game winning streak late in the year helped Union finish 18-13 overall. During the season, the Bulldogs managed to capture the Invahoe- Taylor Classic in Upland, Ind. Anthony Mosley and Dwayne Cornett were named to the all- tournament team. Mosley also led Union in scoring, averaging 17.9 PPG. He also led the team in rebounding with 7.1 RPG, Lenny Grace was second in scoring with 15.2 PPG, while Jimmy Crutcher scored 10 PPG. Grace was the only one to finish his Union career with over 1,000 points. Reggie McLeroy was the most effective Bulldog from three-point range, shooting 43% from " home- run " territory. Senior Guard Reggie McLeroy of Ruston, Louisiana shoots for two. 50 Lenny Grace of Orlando, Fla. puts up two over a defender. Keith Rhodes, a sophomore of Anchorage. Alaska, provides depth and security for the Bulldogs. 51 Lenny Grace adds two more points to the Bulldog ' s score. Lady Bulldogs Basketball 1987 Season The 1986-87 Lady Bulldogs fin- ished their season with a 9-13 re- cord. The season got off to a fan- tastic 7-1 start with wins over ranked teams such as Bellarmine and Lees Junio r College.

The addition of men to the sguad has brought more power moves and bigger smiles to the ladies in the stands and on the sauad. Cheerleading reguires an individual to have some gymnastic skills, the ability to perform power moves ana flexibility. Psssst! Hey, Buddy W«l|PW!|P " l» " wp " » " ' » w« " W« " Hey, Buddy, wanna know a secret? Keep it quiet. We don ' t want this to get around to everyone. You want to know who really runs Union College? It ain ' t the president, even though he works awful hard at it. It ain ' t any of the vice presidents and it ain ' t even the teachers. The folks who really run this place is the support staff. You know, the folks who fix the broken air conditioners and clean the commodes and balance the books and make sure none of the important people miss their phone calls. I reckon that ' s why they ' re called that, ' cause without their support, there wouldn ' t be a Union College. " Union College ' s support staff actually consists of several separate groups — Maintenance, the Business Office, the Cafeteria staff and last, but certainly not least, the secretaries. Everyone knows it ' s the secretaries that that keep things going. Indeed, there would be no Union College without all these hard working men men and women. bi PROFILE It seems like just yester- day that I came to Union. Now, two years later, it ' s hard to be- lieve that I am halfway to my bachelor ' s de- gree. At first, I thought Union was too small a school for me. Now I know better. I like the closeness and unity of the students, faculty ana college staff. I was also used to living in a larger city than Barbourville. However, the smaller city and school does offer the advantage that it ' s easier to make friends. Also, your friends are closer because you get to see and talk to them more often. It was a very big change for me, coming to so small a place, but I soon adapted. Being a member of the Union College football team has maae me a better person and student. I am really glad that I have been and am a member of the football team because the winning tradition of the team is being created by those of us playing now. Union College has given me a chance to mature and grow as a better football player, student, per- son and friend. I will always remember Union and the individuals who make the school special. But most of all, I will remember what these people and this school did for me and all the friends I have made over the years. Albert Pellegrino 62 PROFILE $L£ £. $fc £) I can honestly say that I made the right deci- sion two years ago when I chose to attend Union College. As a student, I have ma- tured greatly, and as a person, I have grown both mentally and spiri- tually. By being al- lowed to take on the job of Stespean editor, I have learned from dealing with others about responsibil- ities and leadership. I have also discovered a lot about myself, who I am and what I want out of life. In addition, I have grown spiritually. God, through several aspects of my life at Union, has given me direction along with guidance so that my life has purpose. Friendships I have made here have made great impacts on my life. Some have inspired me and therefore enabled me to inspire myself. The most important thing Union College has given me is the strength of individuality. I have learned that I don ' t have to go along with the majority or be a part of a group or digue to belong or be happy. I have learned to be myself and not to conform to others ' ideas or values — I have an entire set of my own and they are one of the most important things I own. I have also discovered that I don ' t have to impress people for them to like me — if someone doesn ' t like me for myself, I ' m not going to loose my own identity just to please them. For this I ' m thank- ful. Union College has helped me find and learn myself. Choosing this school to further my education was definitely one of the best decisions that I ever made. In the two years that I have been here I have learned far more than grades could ever show. Paula Whitaker 6i SOPHOMORES ■.

" Richard Shackleford Sundeep Shankwalker Janice Shelton John Smith Rick Smith Vincent Turpin Paula Whitaker Christine Wilson Glen E. Cornist, Jr. has a very unique distinction: he is one of the first five males to become cheerleaders for Union College. Glen is a sophomore Business major from Cincinnati, Ohio. " I feel honored to be one of the first. Later down the road, I ' ll be able to brag and say I was one of the very first male cheerleaders, " Glen says. To be better than the opposing school ' s squad is a goal Union ' s cheerleaders always try to achieve, and with Glen on their side, they can hardly be defeated. The strenuous stunts come easily to Glen who exercises regularly to stay in shape. Glen has high hopes for the future. He plans to attend graduate school and eventually open his own business. He is a positive person with a good head on his shoulders, " Being in college has been an observing experience for me, " Glen says. " From my observation, I have concluded that people are not really sure of what they want. Getting drunk and the association with drugs has played a big role in college life and this has puzzled me a great deal. If people would get involved in personal goal-oriented activities such as cheerleading, then maybe they could overlook getting drunk and doing drugs. " Glen hopes that when the present males on the squad are gone. Union will continue to have male cheerleaders. " I am thankful ' Mrs. Sharon ' and the girls have involved me in cheerleading, " Glen says. " It has been a wonderful experience and full of smiles. " ALL WORK — NO PLAY? 68 Dances are given freguently and are a great success at Union College. They give students the opportunity to get to know each other a little better and to spend time with one another in an atmosphere aifferent from the classroom. Dances give students a chance to get away from their studies for a few hours, which U.C. students generally need. You know what they say about all work and no play. lavid Ford of Rome. Ga. with friend. Top right. Lenny Jrace seems to be enjoying himself. Marsha Collett of Leslie County, Ky. h4 In recalling some of the most important mo- ments of my past, the two most beneficial decisions of all were to get back in school and to come to a school like Union. In making these decisions, I had to look at the things that Union could offer me and the things it couldn ' t. The main things that Union could offer were an ex- pansion of my educational background and a way to become more responsible and independent. Before coming to Union, I spent a year-and-a-half at Louisiana Tech University, but due to a very seri- ous financial problem, I had to drop out and get a job to help my family. A year later, I was contacted by Bill Peterson, Union ' s men ' s basketball coach. He offered me a basketball scholarship. I was really confused because I loved my job, but I also wanted to further my education and play basketball again. So I came to Union. Reggie McLeroy When I arrived at Union, it was like culture shock. There were no night clubs, no alcohol and not many blacks. It seemed very hopeless at first, but I got something good out of what seemed to be a bad situation. This type of environment would leave me no other choice but to study and do my homework. I figured if I could make it through the four years in Barbourville, I could make it anywhere. The thing that hurt me most about Union was that it didn ' t have an art major, but I found something just as interesting. I decided to major in English with a journalism concentration, thereby continuing my in- terest in commercial art. Because of some very special teachers like Dr. Dianne Ferris and Ms. Pat Schweitzer, I was offered some independent art classes which really helped me keep my interest in art. During my three years at Union College, I ' ve man- aged to maintain a 3.5 grade point average and I ' ve been selected for " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities " for both my junior and senior years, and I ' ve also been a member of the men ' s basketball team. But none of these achieve- ments would have been possible if it wasn ' t for God and the help of my family, friends, people in the community and Union faculty. So, I ' d like to say, " Thanks for making my years at Union a success. " 70 1987 Christmas Festival The yuletide spirit of Christmas was in the air at Union College during the week of December 8, 1986. During that week, students and faculty diligently worked to decorate the Conway Boatman Chapel for the " big event. " On opening night, the audience was awed by the Union College Sing- ers and their soloists. Selections on the program included a solo performance of " The Christmas Song " by John Oliver. Yes, the wonder and beauty of Christmas were certainly present at Union College ' s 1986 Christmas Festival. 71 Doing It Wrong — Doing It Right Two Views Of Finals Week Frustrations of finals by Dwana Morris As finals roll around, Union College faculty, and especially students, take on a different look. Many of the students who are usually seen lounging around the Student Center are nowhere to be found; it is as if they have left school or have disappeared into thin air. Yet, if one was to check the rooms and lounges of Pfeiffer and Stevenson Halls, these students more than likely can be found studying ... or rather cramming for final exams. The library, which was once virtually abandoned, now begins to fill with these potential leaders of the future. Everyone is cramming, hoping to somehow pull off an " A " . Although the much worried-about, dreaded finals week is often despised, it brings the students closer to graduation and the real world where finals will be but a frazzled memory. Finals week begins to take its toll on Mark Harris, a junior from Centerville, Ohio. Top left photo: Anita Sparenberg. a freshman from Cincinnati, Ohio, in hot pursuit of an " A " . 72 Finals week — how to survive by Richard Mead The hectic days of cramming for exams have arrived. You have five major tests covering at least fifteen chapters apiece and only one week to study. You have only taken three pages of notes the en- tire semester and it is the weekend, so no one from your classes is available to study with. WHAT WILL YOU DO? Your best bet is not to get into that situa- tion in the first place! Start studying long before the end of the semester. Keep your old quizzes and tests to study. Take copious notes or, if you have trouble keeping up with the professor, copy someone else ' s notes after class or take a tape recorder to class and transcribe from it later. Go over your information regularly, at least once a week, prefera- bly every other day. The more you go over it now, the easier it will be to read it later, since you will already know the ma- terial. If you have questions, no matter what it is, ASK. The more you hear and read about something, the easier it is to remember. Besibes, professors love to have inquisitive students to converse with (they talk, you listen and nod your head a lot). Perhaps the most important thing to do is homework. Although it may seem that homework is an unnecessary punsihment, it is actually assigned so you can practice the skills you have learned in class. If you do the work, you will be reinforcing your knowledge with practical experience, making it less likely for you to forget im- portant facts. If you attempt to do the work and have trouble with it, then you have identified a problem area that you need to get help with. Either way, it is to your advantage to have tried. Finally (no pun intended), when finals week arrives, don ' t panic. Stay calm and apply yourself to your studies. Don ' t sit for ten hours at a time without a break; that ' s the quick way to burn yourself out. Take a ten or fifteen minute break every hour or hour and a half. Have some snacks handy and something to drink. Look out the window every once in a while. Study with a friend — don ' t shoot the bull, study! Many times a study part- ner will remember things you don ' t, and vice versa. If you start to feel tired, go for a short walk to get your blood circulating again. When you walk in to take your exams, don ' t be nervous. Walk tall and be confident, knowing that you have done everything you need to pass with flying colors. Jeff Fryman 73 Xoa - - s Ow h+t y When I first came to Union College, I only knew one person, one of my arch-rivals from high school basketball, Jennifer VanSickle. My roommate was an Ozzy Osborne fan with a huge stereo and she frequently crawled in and out of windows in the early hours of the morn- ing. My basketball playing time was considerably lower than that of high school, but above all, I was so homesick that I prayed for Friday as soon as I got to school on Sunday. I went home every weekend. That is the way things were three years ago, but look at me now. I am almost a senior and having a great time. A lot of things have happened since then, some good, some not so good. I have made friends here and at other schools through basket- ball. I have become active in campus clubs and dorm activities. Because of my friends and involve- ment, I have adjusted well to college life. On a small campus such as Union, friends and activi- ties are important. You have to make things hap- pen and find ways to entertain yourself. Teachers are some of the better friends you can make (they really are nice people). Joanie Adkins 74 Murdrum Probably if I were to sum up my experi- ences so far at Union in a sentence, it would have to be, " I am growing up at col- lege. " I know many freshmen and their be- haviors remind me of the time three years ago when I felt like I had to prove myself. Learning to be away from the familiar surroundings of home and seeing that, although my formative years with my family were the very best, perhaps my views on situations and ideas were not the last word. Since I plan to go to seminary to pursue a master of divinity degree in pastoral psychology and then a doctorate in the same discipline, college is just a stepping stone for my academic and spiritual ca- reer. During my stay at Union, my friends and I have spent many an hour complaining about things such as food and dorm conditions. One thing is for sure though, I have never heard anyone complain about not getting a good education. Naturally, education is a relative thing, for you only get out of it what you put in. On the occasions I have le t up and gotten a " B " when I could have had an " A " with a little more effort, I have felt like I have failed; I failed myself. To me, that in itself has been an education. Probably the most important thing to me is to have friends to share good and bad times with. There are many triumphs and disasters. To those who have been close enough to me to care and share those times, I am ever greatful for your compassion. To these people goes my great love and respect. As I look forward to one final year at Union, sadness overwhelms me in a way, but the sense of a new adventure awaiting excites me as well. As I men- tioned previously, my friends have been an impor- tant part of my college days. For some of my friends, this will be their last annual from Union Col- lege. They are people who have made college for me. I hope that this short profile is a fitting tribute to Todd Anderson them. Remember when I said, " I am growing up at college? " Well, I suppose that is one of the best things a college can do for people. Union has given me a sense of identity and belonging. My life has been my college and all that goes with it. Leaving will be difficult, but a life time of memories to look back on and cherish will be mine. 75 Juniors Joanie Adkins Cyndilyn Alcott Percy Alexander Todd Anderson Steve Bradford Aaron Brooks Fred Calloway John Carmack John Chamberlin Glenda Coffman Darrin Morris of Orlando, Fla. flashes a smile. 76 Jackie Cox Don Enoch Jeff Fryman Tommy Greer Tim Gurren Mark Harris Drew Henderson Karen Henfling Missy Hutchins Brad Ingle Deborah James Michael Kelly Eric Life Greg Long Chaz Martin Larry McNabb 77 William McNabb Tim Miniard Ogle Overbay Tommy Pace am ' t wk ' W i »- Jr V. _ : Ricky Parker Ron Reece Loretta Roach Cornelious Roberson Norah Tibizayo is a native of Uganda, located in East Africa.

Individual perceptions — individual visions — are what we ' re all trying to develop here at college. We ' re looking for new ways to see the world and ourselves. Just like the people and places in these pictures. Our collegiate successes and failures in developing visual acuity are good predicters of whether we ' ll succeed or fail in life. Visions are what we ' re here for. 81 Pearlygate — Top Stories Of 1987 Editor ' s Note: This spring, TV evangelist Jim Bakker was caught in the throes of a sex scandle so extraordinary that it threatens to destroy his television ministry, the Praise the Lord Club. Bakker was accused of a tryst with a church secretary as well as homosexual acts and wife swapping. Bakker ' s plight raised some questions concerning the church and ministers. The Stespean put some of those questions to three of Union ' s pre-ministerial students, as well as questions concerning Oral Roberts. Roberts made the news this spring when he announced that God would call him home at the end of March if he didn ' t raise $7 million for medical school scholarships. The last week of March, just as Roberts entered his prayer tower to await the end, a Florida race track owner came forward with a $1.3 million donation " just to put an end to all this. " Following are the Union students ' views on events which have come to be called " Pearlygate. " Should ministers be held to higher moral standards than non- clergy? Mark Clifford First of all, I believe it must be understood that minis- ters are human beings too. They are regular people with regular likes, dislikes and faults. They are no better than any- one else. They are normal people and subject to everything that goes on in the world. For some reason or another, though, people expect ministers to be perfect. We can ' t be. We can only try and keep on. As long as God is with us, I ' m sure His will will be done. Would Oral Roberts have died if he hadn ' t raised the $7 million? I doubt that God would take anyone " home " if they didn ' t raise a certain amount of money. Being a Christian and working for God has nothing to do with money. If God really wanted the Oral Roberts ministry to reach out, He would have had a plan and a way to raise the money. I think that Oral Roberts didn ' t believe he could get all the money he needed so he used that as propaganda or even as a scare tactic. Anthony Pierce l Todd Anderson ■i Would things have gone better for Jim Bakker if he had admitted his indiscretion and asked for forgiveness rather than resigning? Bakker did the only pru- dent thing. If he had hung on, the situation may have been very unpleas- ant for the church as a whole. However, his resig- nation will allow healing to take place and it has already begun. Whether the blow would have been softened by his public disclosure would be difficult to say. Per- haps the Bakker downfall is in that the whole orga- nization tried to give the impression that they were a little better than human when in actuality they are not. 8. ' Top Stories In 1987 — Iranamuck The basic facts are not in dispute. U.S. governmen t officials arranged for the sale of arms to Iran in the hope of obtaining the release of American hostages held in Lebanon. The profits from the sale were to be used to fi- nance the " Contra " organization which opposes the current " Sandinis- ta " regime in Nicaragua. The hostage release side of the deal has not been criticized much. How could it be? The president suffered a great deal of criticism for his inability to resolve the hostage situation, es- pecially after the disasterous deploy- ment of the Marines in Lebanon. The use of the profits from the deal to support the Contras. however, has not been seen as quite so innocent. The reason: the Boland Amendment which prohibited any aid to the Con- tras at the time that these arrange- ments were being made. Things get a bit hazier at this point. Officials and private citizens involved in the affair have presented it as a private transaction, thereby (possi- bly) avoiding criminal penalities. It remains to be seen whether a court is likely to view a transaction as pri- vate when it is planned by the Na- tional Security Council (NSC), exe- cuted by (among others) public officials, assisted by the director of the CIA, and organized in response to informal suggestions from the presi- dent of the United States. Not surpris- ingly, critics have focused on possible violations of law. And that is a critical mistake. What makes the whole af- fair so devastating is not its illegality (which, historically speaking, puts the Reagan administration in very good company), but rather the sheer un- believable incompetence of officials who are charged with safeguarding the security of the United States. Consider: the NSC decides to reopen lines of communication with Iran, at best a very delicate undertaking re- quiring a great deal of knowledge and understanding of that much-ma- ligned country ' s culture. Who orga- nizes the whole plan? A Marine offi- cer, a much decorated combat veteran, but without any back- ground that really qualified him to deal with Iran. Consider: the whole affair required tight security and careful planning. Why? The operation conflicted with stated American policy. Hence, the need for a covert operation. The government could have used some of its thousands of highly capable spies and spymasters. Instead, the operation was run by people who could not keep a Swiss bank account secret and even managed to lose $10 million by accidentally sending the money to the wrong bank ac- count. Consider: The implications for Ameri- can foreign policy, should the opera- tion ' s cover be blown, were vast. Did the NSC consult the government ' s experts in the State Department? Did they even have such experts in- volved in the operation? No. Inevitably, the whole affair has be- come a farce. Lieutenant-Colonel Oliver North, briefly called a hero, used the 5th Amendment to avoid answering questions, a tactic usually employed by tax evaders and drug dealers. Retired General Richard Se- cord, now a private arms merchant, spent two days in front of a Congres- sional committee laboriously estab- lishing how, on the one hand, he was acting entirely on the instructions of the government, yet was not an agent of that government. Tragedy nearly struck when former National Security advisor Robert McFarlane, a sensitive and intelligent man, at- tempted suicide. Comparisons of the whole affair to Watergate are grossly overblown. President Reagan did not subvert the Constitution, he did not tamper with the political process: he did not deny Congress ' s power to restrict his ac- tions. His predecessors have done all of these things, and worse. What President Reagan did was to allow the National Security Council to fall into the hands of bungling, ama- teurish " yes — men. " General Se- At least President Reagan didn ' t subvert the Constitution or otherwise tamper with the political process. cord was inadvertently right when he suggested that " the world is laughing at us. " America deserves better. — news analysis by Hubert van Tuyll, Assistant Professor of History 8 Drugs — Top Stories In 1987 From The White House To Union College Crackdown On Drugs Causes A Storm Of Opinions Last year. President Reagan intro- duced a $3.1 billion drug abuse pro- gram in what he termed " a war against drugs. " Reagan ' s program includes manda- tory drug testing of federal employ- ees, the death penalty in drug relat- ed murders, and more money for law enforcement, drug prevention and treatment programs. Reagan also proposed legislation that would allow colleges and univer- sities the right to use pre-admission drug testing to screen out those who use drugs. Drug testing for the first year alone carries with it a price tag of $56 mil- lion. Employees testing positive will be ordered to enter a drug treat- ment program (partly at their own expense), and second time offend- ers face a dismissal. What is the point here? Has increased media attention to the drug problem introduced during an election year presented our government with an opportunity for a quick fix to a very complicated situation? Why should mega-bucks be spent in testing pro- ductive working Americans who have no history of drug use and abuse? The entire concept of drug testing as a determinant of employment and admittance into college lends itself to many apparent abuses. First of all, the tests have been prov- en unreliable in many situations. Secondly, how often will personal conflicts between employer and em- ployee come into play when drug testing becomes a major part of hir- ing and firing practices? Reagan, in his leading role as " Drug Buster " is unfortunately barking up the wrong tree. The core of the drug problem lies not with our working Americans or youth seeking a col- lege education. Our problem lies in the easy availability of drugs in our society. Therefore this crusade against drugs should be concentrated on in- creased law enforcement, a legal and constitutional means of convict- ing a criminal. 84 The following letter appeared in the September 16 issue of the Union Express. Dear Editor, This editorial is strictly my opinion and is not designed to upset or pinpoint any particular person. Drug testing, in my opinion, should not be used as a method of determining a person ' s guilt who uses drugs. It should be used to identify persons using drugs in order to rehabilitate a problem or possible future problem. There are not many people today that will openly admit they use drugs or have a drug problem, just like the alcholics who only drink two or three beers a night, yet cannot get rid of the alcohol odor that surrounds them. People, drugs are dangerous. I know you only smoke marajuana once or twice a week, but what happens when you no longer get the high that you used to get? Drugs are by far the greatest problem that exists in America today. Communist countries survive off the Land of the Free through smuggling drugs into our country. Illegal drugs are a $16 billion a year organization. Why pay for something that will kill you? I care for each and every one of you at Union College. If drug testing is the answer to finding people so we can help them, then let ' s do it. If drug testing is the means of condemning people who have a problem, then let ' s forget it. This is a Methodist college; let ' s get high on " Jesus. " Name Withheld by Request « - Top Stories Irt 1987 — Drugs Union Athletes Face Testing By Aaron " Skeet " Brooks Effective next year, the NAIA will require drug urinalysis examina- tions of all athletes participating in competition at the NAIA level. Urinalysis exams are used for the detection of cocaine, marijuana, steroids, heroin, and any other drug that does bodily harm. This type of examination is already in use and mandatory nationwide for many in the professional rank of athletes, especially in the NCAA. Although urinalysis examinations are good ways of getting a han- dle on athletes with drug prob- lems, they are not yet a fool proof system, says Gary Barnett, assistant football coach of Union College. Captain DeWayne Brewer, Union ' s ROTC instructor, says that drugs such as cough medicine, cold medicines, and other types of stimulants used to treat illness are detected in a urinalysis. Coach Mike Baldwin, another of Union ' s football staff, says that there are cases where test sam- ples have been mixed up and or lost. He says " the tracking system of urine has to be accurate to prevent the switching or mixing of urine. " Union athletes who test positive will be retested, and an investi- gation will be conducted to find out whether the drug detected is a doctor ' s prescription or an ille- gal drug. Barnett says with the signing of President Reagan ' s war against drugs law that a number of our so called " role models " whether athletic or otherwise, are going to be affected by urinalysis ex- ams. ±L±HT Artwork by Reggie McLeroy as PROFILE j££c riuJX j While attending Union College, I have learned that I can be myself without having to wor- ry about being pres- sured by my peers. I don ' t have to conform to fit into the different social groups. I have learned that if you are willing to stand up for what you believe in, people will readily accept you because they can depend on you to be definite in your view. Union College has allowed me to receive a formal education without being scared to death by the size of the campus and classroom. When I first start- ed college, I went to the University of Kentucky where classes consisted of 100-300 students and often more. This devastated me because I was used to a school population of around 1,500. In high school, I had a personal identity, but when I arrived at U.K., I became a number. They didn ' t want to know my name, ana in most of the large classes, the roll was called by your number. I was only a number floating around in a computer ' s memory. Union changed all this. After enrolling at Union, I began to feel like a person again. The Registrar ' s Office staff called me by name. People in other offices were interested in me just because I was a person. I felt like someone really cared about what I did with my life. The teachers at Union take an interest in their students and tell them not only when they are slacking off their work, but also praise them when they do well. I believe that this is the key to Union ' s future — believing in the students and car- ing for them. Because Union has allowed me to be myself, I have direction in my life. Since the seventh grade, I want- ed to be a lawyer. I talked to aifferent people before enrolling at Union and learned that the school has a higher percentage of students who get accepted into law school than do many large universities. So, I enrolled in pre-law with a major in English and psychology. But, by the grace of God, my ambition changed when I surrendered to the ministry on August 21, 1986. God has prepared me with two fields that will be very helpful in my ministry. Rick Partin Union College was a big part of this because I was accepted for who I am. I plan to work on my mas- ter ' s degree at Mid-American Theological Seminary in Memphis, Tenn. and probably stay there until I get my aoctorate of theology. May God bless each one of you and may you seek direction from God in every day of your life. I pray that God will continue to bless and add unto Union College and every student ' s life that is touched by this school. Teachers and staff, continue to take interest in and care for your student. Through the instruction of small liberal arts colleges like Union, we allow students to be themselves. May God bless ana be glorified by all that you do. 8b SPRING How Green Was My Valley? 88 Not very if you were in Barbourville on the first weekend of April. That weekend, virtually all of southeastern Kentucky was white and gray — white snow and gray skies. A wetter- than-usual snow stuck to everything — tree limbs, traffic lights, barbed wire fences. The snow started on Thursday April 2, but didn ' t really stick much until late that night. Friday morning, we found about four inches of snow on the ground, and 7:55 a.m. classes were canceled. The snow continued all day Friday, all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday. In some places around Knox County, as much as 13 inches of snow fell over the four-day period. As we hunkered down in our overcoats and drew our mufflers close around our faces on what, by all rights, should have been a delightfully warm spring weekend, many of us pondered T.S. Eliot ' s observation that, " April is the crudest month. " 8 ' ) V a 1 n t i n Cupid was shooting arrows to and tro as people were dancing the night away in the student center on February 12.

It was the spring of 1986. I came here after sitting out of school for a year. My first thoughts about this place were all negative. They remained this way throughout the entire se- mester. I did not plan to come back in the fall. I really disliked it here. I did, however, return. It has been one of my best decisions. The most important thing in my life is my relationship with God. Because of this relationship, I am here at Union now. I feel Union is where God wants me to be. Because I am here, I have grown spiritually and gained much in every other aspect of my life. God has blessed me tremendously over the past year through the people and events that have resulted from me being at Union. I have a core of friends that is unique and special. It ' s terrific to have Christian friends to share with. I ' ll never forget my Union friends. Because I have grown close to others (T, Dave, Rhonda, Jim, Sheila, Marc, Bron, Larry and Will), Union College will remain with me as a special memory. At Union, I have gotten involved in many academic and social activities. Because I am in such a positive environment, my grades are terrific. I even enjoy studying. Making the Dean ' s List and being inducted into Gamma Beta Phi have come as a result of this new-found joy. Being involved in the social aspects of UC is as important to me as anything else I do on campus. FCA has become an intricate part of my life. Also, there is no other place I would rather go than on a road trip to see a Lady Bulldog basketball game. Another reason I enjoy this place so much is the faculty and the administration. The feeling of com- munity that exists here at Union is awesome. It is great to know that I can go and talk to any of my instructors for any reason. So what do all these things have to do with me? Well, they are now all a part of my life. When I leave this place, I will be able to take with me a treasure Mark Clifford box full of memories. This must mean that life here at Union has been good to me. It has!!! I LOVE this place!!! It will be hard to leave. Leaving. Graduating. It is hard to believe that both will be happening relatively soon. I am looking for- ward to seminary and becoming an ordained Meth- odist minister, yet I will miss being here. Still, because God has blessed me so much here at Union, I will be able to take my experiences and use them in my ministry. In closing, I just want to say thanks to everyone who has made Union an awesome place for me. The people and the times will not be forgotten. PROFILE Here it is, that old trunk. Well, it wasn ' t that old when I started here, but it ' s got plenty of nicks and bruises from four years of traveling home and back. Now it only has one more trip. It is about the only thing remaining that I brought down as a freshman, but there is no time for sentiment because everyone knows seniors can ' t wait to get out of this place. Well, maybe one more look inside before I take it out. Here we go ... a Union College welcome of public freshman humiliation — the orange derby hat. It figures that was the last year. Here is a program for the inauguration ceremony for President Jack. How many people got to witness that? Here is a picture of me in my first college basketball game. See? I ' m the third one from the end. Or maybe that was this year? Oh, well. This is a football schedule for Union ' s first team in 42 years. What was their record that year? Here is the backgammon game my parents told me every college student played in the dorm. They should have just given me a quarter. John Watkins took this bottle cap oft with his teeth. What? Oh, that was the 10 yard field marker from Georgetown. Just look at all this junk — letters from home, certifi- cates, grades I didn ' t take home, cafeteria dishes, awards, ace bandages, casts, my Union letters, an ARA frisbee, Union College tush cush, pompoms, pins, a crown, the dead mouse we hung over Char- lotte Gambrel ' s door (that ' s not supposed to be there) . . . Oh, what ' s this? A letter? " You have been cleared for graduation. " I guess it ' s time to pack up this old thing. You know something really silly? I ' m gonna miss this place.

" " Did you say six miles? " " Don ' t you know how to drive? " " Do you hate your par- ents? " First comes a look of, what could I call it, a look of amazement combined with doubt when people ask me these questions. After that look is gone, wonder, of speculation - and see a shrink. I usually get the look of - as if maybe I should go But, sorry, I don ' t need to lie on a couch and say the first word that comes to my mind when someone says " apple " or " dog. " Yes, I can drive, And no, I don ' t hate my parents. They ' re okay — lots of fun. Yet, to many people ' s disbelief, I do live in the dorm, even though my home is only six miles from the ever popular Union campus. " Why? " you ask. Well, I ' m closer to things — the library, print shop (newspaper), classes . . . especially classes. This is really helpful, because I ' m almost always, no matter how hard I try not to be, late. My mom thinks I ' ll be late for my own funeral. She ' s probably right. I HAVE MY OWN ROOM!!! " Big deal, " you say. Those of you, like me, with lots of family (brothers and sisters) will understand my excitement (Sorry, Family, but I know you feel the same way!) Plus, as many could probably tell you, I ' m sometimes on the quiet side. So? Well, because so, I generally don ' t talk much, especially in classes. Classes are where most commuters meet people, talk, find friends. Therefore, no commuting for me — I like Valerie Shields friends, people to share things with other than homework. My body clock ticks differently than those of my family. They tell me what it ' s like before the sun is fully up. I tell them who was on Johnny Carson. Sure, there are disadvantages to living in the dorm. I have to go to Union ' s cafeteria, kill roaches, take cold showers. I have to sleep on a bed that thinks it ' s auicksand and makes you sink in the middle. I don ' t get to see " Fred " (that ' s Jessica, my five, almost six-year-old sister) as much as I would like to. Yet, I think I made the right decision. No shrinks are needed here — at least, not yet!! 94 Clubs And Organizations A.C.E. The Association for Cultural Enhancement, better known as A.C.E. , is a newly established organization. The organization first attempted to get off the ground during the 1985-86 school year. The organization has seen great progress this year. The group has not been established as an organization of Union College. At present, the organization is working on a constitution. A.C.E. has taken several efforts to let the college community know that it wants to become involved in campus life. One such event was attending a Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday celebration at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tenn. The organization has been set up for minority students, and its sponsor is Mr. Michael Williams. Officers are Percival Alexander, president; Cheddi Creighton, vice-president; Mary Lou Pursiful, secretary-treasurer; Vernora Mays, assistant secretary-treasurer. Left to right: Cheddi Creighton, Willie Caffey, Dwana Morris, Chester Millirons, Mike Williams, Percy Alexander, Genece Henderson. Alpha Psi Omega is a national dramatic arts honorary fraternity. Students are eligible for membership by accumulating points for play acting or backstage technical work. With continuous work, a person can usually become a member of Alpha Psi Omega by their sophomore year. Once a person becomes a member of the fraternity, they are a member for life. Alpha Psi Omega has been in existance here at Union since 1937. The organization is led by Dr. Rebecca A. Pettys. " This is the first year since I ' ve been here that Alpha Psi Omega has been an active club, " says Dr. Pettys. " One of our more entertaining activities this year has been the production of an awards ceremony similar to the Tony Awards. " At that ceremony held on Thursday, April 9, awards were given to outstanding drama students for both on-stage and back-stage accomplishments. Members of the organization include: Mark Roland, president; Edward Maher. vice-president; Glenna Brock Estes, secretary-treasurer; Ronnie Vanover; Miranda Stroud; Becky Warfield; and Katrina Belcher. BLTN Union College ' s Better Late Than Never club was started in the fall of 1986 by Faculty Advisor Martha Cornwell. The purpose of the club is to offer support to students returning to school after experiencing a break in their education. The goal is to help returning students take up their education and help them to reach their goals. BLTN tries to provide a time and place, usually in the back lounge of Pfeiffer Hall on Friday mornings, twice a month for members to get together. The meetings include questions and answers, information sessions, and just getting together to share experiences. BLTN feels that just getting to know other people who are sharing a college experience will help everyone feel more comfortable and cope with problems that may arise. The club ' s president for the 86-87 year is Sue Buttery, and the officers are Jerry Baker, Vireda Russell, and Christine Wilson. One of the highlights of the year was a float in the Daniel Boone Parade which encouraged nontraditional students and was a great success. Having fun and enjoying each other ' s company is always one of the major priorities of BLTN. 100 The Campus Activities Board is responsible for planning the majority of activities on campus. The Activities Board is open to all interested students. The primary goal of this organization is to keep the student body highly motivated and involved with activities. F.C.A. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an organization that meets regularly on the Union College campus. It is a group of college students committed to fellowship, study, prayer and community service. The FCA chapter at Union College is sponsored by Jeff Lanham and the officers are: Jennifer VanSickle, president; Tony Akers, vice president; and William McNabb, secretary. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes meets in the Religious Life Center at 9 p.m. on Wednesdays. Left to Right: Todd Anderson, Keith Hays, Jennifer VanSickle, Brian Erslin, Tony Akers, Larry McNabb, Kevin Singleton, Mark Clifford, William McNabb, Jeff Lanham, Melissa Hutchins. Gamma Beta Phi is an honors society which promotes scholastic achievement and community service. Its bywords are service, scholarship and character. The Union College Chapter began in 1966. To become a member a student must have at least a 3.0 grade point average on at least 15 hours of study and receive an invitation. Sixty-six members were inducted this year. This chapter ' s main event each year is Faculty Appreciation Day. Next year, the chapter will host the state convention of Kentucky Gamma Beta Phi chapters. The chapter has helped with the special Olympics and Union College ' s clubs and organizations day. Gamma Beta Phi recently started a Big Brother Big Sister program with a local orphanage. Officers of Gamma Beta Phi are Eric Life, president; Glenda Coffman, vice president; Dawn McQueen, secretary; William McNabb, treasurer; Mark Riggs, reporter historian. Iota Sigma Nu lota Sigma Nu is an honor society for juniors and seniors with an overall grade point average of 3.4 or better. It unites the students in an organization that encourages high ideals, promotes diligence in study and rewards excellence in scholarship. 101 Phi Beta Lambda, the Union College Business Club, has twenty-six official members and several honorary members. Their faculty advisor is Dr. Ella Hensley of the Business Department. Members have the opportunity to gain practical business experience through their fund-raising projects, to have fun sponsoring and engag- ing in activities such as dances, volleyball on campus, and the pumpkin carving contest. Intellectually, they sponsor speakers on campus, and compete for state and national awards at the Annual Meeting of Kentucky Phi Beta Lambda and the national PBL. Last year, there was a first place national award winner in Business Management. The national meetings this year will be in Anaheim, California. The Student Senate is the student governmental body at Union College. Its purpose is to bridge the gap between the students and their problems. The Senate presents students ' concerns to the college administra- tion. Senate membership is open to all Union Students. The Union College Singers, under the direction of Randall Sheets, consists of the following students: Tony Alvis; Cheryl Cole; Jackey Cox; Bernard Culliver; Stephanie Gambrel; Penny Helton; Danny Meadows; Lisa Miles; Lori Nelson; Jon Oliver; Jim Ricotta; Anita Sparenberg; Carl Turner; Ron Vanover, vice president; Sandi Washam; John G. White, president; and Melanie White. The major highlight of the Union College Singers is their annual tour, and this year the group traveled to Ohio. The Union College Singers returned to have their annual Homecoming Concert which was in the Conway Boatman Chapel.

A Winning Season In the early morning hours of Feb- ruary and March, Larry Inkster and Miles Estes were building a base- ball team in the gym. The team was hungry for wins. While we were all in bed, the 1987 Bulldogs were on their way to a new school record for wins in a single season. The Bulldog record stood at 26 wins and 16 losses. Union advanced to district play and defeated its rival, Cumber- land College which was ranked 11th in the country. Union beat Cumberland three times while Cumberland was able to beat the Bulldogs only twice. 108 ■■■■■■Il V II I X Kevin Root winds up. Travis Smith, forward, makes a catch.

" Con- trary to many people, I find it relatively easy to do mathematical computations this early in the morning, but only if they have anything to do with sleep. " Two hours to get ready and make it to school . . . 1 1 o ' clock minus two hours eguals 9:00, It ' s just 6:30 . . . two-and-a-half hours to sleep. I ' ll just lie here half an hour longer . . . No . . . should get up. Got things to do. Ugh ... " As I swing my legs over the side of the bed, my eyes focus on the text which had been sleepily cast aside during the night. So much for the reading assignment. I enjoy the comforts of living at home. Or, I would if I were here more often. The only time I get to take advantage of being at home is odd times like this one. Blurry-eyed, I stumble through the house to put some coffee on. Becky Warfield I look out the front door. " Well, it didn ' t snow. It ' s not even raining . . . Only a thirty minute drive today. " Snow or rain means extra time for the drive to school. By now, I ' m awake enough to notice that the place is a mess. Cleaning house is not my favor- ite occupation, but since it ' s early . . . Okay, I admit it. Mornings are rough for everyone. The hardest thing for me to do is to leave home on- time. If there ' s anything that ' s mandatory for com- muters, it ' s getting on the road on time. As depar- ture time draws nearer, I seem to grow more and more frantic. " For Heaven sake! You would think someone could find the textbook they had been reading only last night, " I say to my brother as he sidesteps to avoid me as I dash madly toward my room. By this time, I ' m so flustered it helps to mentally walk through the procedures. " Lock the door, shut the screen, run to the car, throw books in passenger seat, start the car . . . start the car . . . please car, start! Phew! " Once at the college, the day goes relatively smoothly. It ' s a relief to work with people who share responsibility. A commuter ' s responsibilities and in- dependence are sometimes a crushing weight. You can get lost in the feeling of being alone in the mundane actions of life and the rush for an educa- tion. Strength and loyalty must be bound with sensi- tivity and creativity in order to succeed. Sometimes commuters are labeled as aloof. In truth, a lot of us are, but not consciously. It ' s genuinely hard to become involved in campus life when you have another life waiting for you at home. Besides, there ' s no time. Demands can only push so far. After that, they are ignored. Sorry, commuters are hu- man, too. 119 BUTTERFLIES ARE FREE At Union College The Spring 1987 Theatre production was Leonard Gershe ' s " Butterflies are Free " . Under the direction of Dr. RePecca Pettys, the production took place in the Rector Little Theatre. The play centers on Don Baker (played by Marc Roland), a blind man on his own for the first time in New York City, and his escapades. The characters who surround Baker are Jill Tanner, the rejected, would-be-actress-if- everything-in-her-life- was-perfect, who is played by Miranda Stroud. Katrina Belcher brought to the stage a seemingly cold and lonely woman as she played Baker ' s mother. Topping off the cast was Ron Vanover who played the slightly " off " hippie director who hoped for a theatre takeover with his revolutionary nude productions. All the characters provided their unique qualities as actors and actresses to make the production a success. A top-notch stage crew backed up the fine theatrical performance. Crew members were: Mike Morrison, Becky Warfieia, Margie Kirk, Eric Life, Edward Maher, and John Oliver. Above. Miranda Stroud and Mark Roland. Below, Miranda Stroud.

In- stead of having basically an end- of-the-year prom somewhere off campus, Dean of Students Ed de Rosset and friends planned an on-campus extravaganza, com- plete with awards to deserving faculty, staff and students, a din- ner consisting of, among other things, steak and shrimp, and dancing. And, the icing on the cake came when de Rosset ma naged to convince manage- ment that 7:55 classes should be postponed since most of us would be in a state of reverie af- ter a night of revelery. K ' l C- A L6 Ub l{ £ r My name is Christine Wilson. I am married and have four daugh- ters. I am 57-years-old and a sophomore here at Union. Before I came here, I had no formal education; I never fin- ished third grade, but I always had a deep desire to get an education. Then, one of my daugh- ters came to college here at Union. After talking to her about college, I went to see the superintendent of the Knox County grade schools and made ar- rangements to take the GED test, an examination that you can use to get the eguivalent of a high school diploma. I took the test and got scores high enough to get into Union. I have been here for almost two years. I ' m in my fourth semester. I live in the girl ' s dormitory, and I thoroughly enjoy being with all the young women. Despite my age, I don ' t feel out of place at all. I have my privacy and they have theirs. We talk and visit, but we don ' t get in each other ' s way. The girls in the dorm are very nice to me and I like all of them. Nevertheless, it ' s quite different living in the dorm from living at home. I feel as if I am accom- plishing something with my school work, and associ- ating with all the young people here, I feel younger. College has really inspired me. There ' s one other thing I like about living on campus — I don ' t have to cook for myself! My husband says I ' ve changed a lot since I came to college. I don ' t know if I have or not. I do have a broader outlook on life, and I have a strong desire to go on. Being here has inspired me to push for- ward. If I get discouraged or down, there is always someone around to talk to and to encourage me to keep going. Living here has been a great experi- ence in itself. I ' ll always remember and treasure these times. 122 Faculty and Staff — English Department Dr. Jan Finkel, professor of En- glish and head of fhe English, Foreign Languages and Journal- ism Department, has been at Union College for eleven years. He says he very much enjoys his work here, and sees as the strength of the department he supervises " the quality of the people doing the teaching and the general concern for the stu- dents they teach. " There are ap- proximately 40 English majors here at Union and, according to Finkel, the number of English ma- jors increases every year. Faculty members not pictured are Charles Mitchell, Catherine Tooms and Carrie Stephenson. Department Head Jan Finkel Diane Ferris, English Vera Lynn Sheets, Reading Gordon Marigold, Foreign Languages Debbie van Tuyll, Journalism Administrative Staff — Faculty and Staff President Jack C. Phillips The administrative officials are the freauently over-worked, under-appreciated people who keep Union College running. Presi- dent Jack Phillips and his adminis- trative staff are the ones who make those hard decisions about where and how the college ' s lim- ited funds should be spent, whether students have met re- auirements for graduation ana how to build a strong public im- age for the college. Administra- tors also serve as the final arbiters when all other efforts to resolve problems have failed.

Probably the thing that makes the whole student services staff so special is their constant and consistent interest and affection for the Union Col- lege Students. They are also a competent, efficient group. Michael Williams. Assistant Student Activities Director Freida New. Administrative Assistant Men ' s Dorm Director Miles Estes 125 Business Department — Faculty and Staff T he Business Department vies with the Education Depart- ment for the largest number of majors at Union College. Six ma- jors are offered through the Busi- ness Department, including ac- counting, business administration, business education, computer in- formation systems, economics and office administration. This year, department head duties were shared by Dr. Robert Pettys and Mr. Allen Engle. Pettys served as acting department head while Engle was away working on his Ph.D. Not pictured are depart- ment members Engle and Ricar- do Testino. Bob Pettys, Business Paula Allen. Office Administration Bill Myers, Computer Information Systems Joe Hacker, Business Ella Hensley, Economics Paul Stephenson, Accounting 26 Faculty and Staff — Education Department Nearly one-half of all Union College students take class- es in the Education Department, preparing for careers in Poth ele- mentary and secondary educa- tion. Despite a shortage of staff members this year, the Education Department successfully helped Union prepare for a visit from state officials who were on cam- pus to determine whether Union ' s teacher education program would retain its state accredita- tion. Education faculty members burned the midnight oil helping Dr. Bob Swanson, the Natural Sci- ence faculty member who head- ed the self-study task force, pre- pare the accreditation docu- ments. Education faculty mem- bers not pictured here include Dr. Art Hafner and Mrs. Allie Mays. Department Head Jean Letch Mary Alice Lay, Education Doris Thompson, Education 127 All-in-One Thanks to a $1.2 million addition, the Abigail E. Weeks Memorial Library can finally be housed under one roof. Plans for the annex had been underway for several years and have now become a reality. Virginia Saddler, who retired in 1986 after 23 years as head librarian, had never ceased hoping for an expansion and played a vital part in preliminary design of the annex. Beginning in August 1987, the fully operational 20,000 sguare foot annex eliminated the need to store parts of the library collection in the Science Center and Speed Hall attics, as well as using some third floor classroom space in Centennial Hall. As the Weeks library expanded, so did its ability to serve the students. Before the annex, the library was designed to house 40,000 volumes and now , with the current addition, it can accommodate approximately 80,000 volumes. The library is equipped with a cataloging terminal network system for quicker access to information and will be switching to the Library of Congress cataloging system. Another improvement implemented was the relocation of the Learning Resource Center. Longer hours and better viewing space allow convenient use of the media collection. The library addition was seen as a big step for Union. " It will represent a major and significant development for Union College. It will enable us to provide excellent service for our students as well as the public, " said Vice President for Academic Affairs Carlyle Ramsey. Library construction UMiLJJ Ed Gibson was overseen by Ramsey, Vice President for Administration Ed Black and Head Librarian Ed Gibson. Construction was handled by Vaughn and Melton, an architect firm with branches in Middlesboro, Ky. and Greenville, Tenn. Fay France — by Don Gilbert Marilyn Coffey 1 28 President Jack C. Phillips breaks ground for the library % Construction is begun on the new library annex 129 Music and Fine Arts — Faculty and Staff The music department ' s pur- pose is to train or educate students to be good teachers in public schools and to be good church musicians. There are ap- proximately 10 music majors here at Union. Activities in which music students can participate include Union College Singers, Brass En- semble, Pep Band and Stage Band. Evelyn Matthews, Art Rebecca Pettys. Drama I 30 Faculty and Staff — Natural Sciences Natural Scie nces Division head Santaram Chilukuri says the chief attribute of his division is its well aualified faculty. Nearly 60 percent of the Natural Science faculty have Ph.D.s, a fact which warrants acknowledgement. Chilukuri, who had been at Union College for 17 years, announced his resignation last spring, in order for him to accept a post at a satellite campus of Purdue Uni- versity in Indiana. A notable ab- sence this year was biologist Ron Rosen who was away on a fel- lowship. Faculty members not pictured include Ivan Bunch, Coal Technology; Clevis Carter, Physi- cal Science; Ken Alford, Mathe- matics; and Lee Stallard, Mathe- matics. James Vancil, Biology Bob Swanson 131 Physical Education — Faculty and Staff The teaching staff in the Health and Physical Education De- partment is better than it ' s been in the last 10 to 15 years, accord- ing to Department Head and Athletic Director Dr. Pete Moore. This development makes Moore " very proud. " He believes that the staff is committed to Union College and the school ' s objec- tives. Moore also believes that his coaching staff is one of the best, giving their winning records as in- dications of their successes. The Health and Physical Eaucation Department has between seven and ten minors and 30 majors. The department ' s purpose is to prepare students for teaching degrees in health and physical education or for careers in allied health areas. Chuck Uiteras, in- structor of physical education and swimming coach, is not pic- tured here. % r Department Head Pete Moore Larry Inkster, Physical Education Bill Peterson, Physical Education Tamra Cash, Physical Education Kathy Brediger, Trainer M Facul ty and Staff — Religion and Philosophy The Department of Religion and Philosophy is usually con- sidered the heart of a church-re- lated school, and so it is at Union. With instructors Dr. Bob Matthews and the Rev. Jim Powell, Union College students are challenged to think about their religious be- liefs rather than to accept dog- ma blindly. We are grateful to Dr. Matthews and Rev. Powell for their interest in us and their con- cern for the development of our minds. Bob Matthews Jim Powell in Social Sciences — Faculty and Staff The Social Sciences Division, headed by Dr. John Taylor, is the home of all those disciplines that teach us to understand our- selves and one another, to look more critically at current events and to understand those current events in terms of what has gone before. Discipli nes included in the Social Sciences Division include sociology, psychology, anthro- pology, history and political sci- ence, as well as the Appalachian Semester which is an intensive, semester-long study of life and living in Appalachia. Not pictured here is Mrs. Martha Cornwell, as- sociate professor of sociology. Division Head John Taylor, History Jim Cox.
