The weather is warm and beautiful. Support for Union College foot- ball team can be heard although Lambuth is defeating them. Peo- ple sit and take in the warm sun, enjoying each other ' s company. The joy and peace we feel is about to end. For on this day Debra Marie Wayne, 19, and Dar- rell Edward Wayne, 17, both of Asher, Ky., will lose their lives in a car accident. As news of the disaster starts to slowly seep through the campus, a veil of sorrow envelops the family here at Union. Debra and Darrell ' s friends begin to realize the special gift that they were given by the two who shared their thoughts, feel- ings and love. " Debra Marie Wayne was a vital, vivacious young woman. She enjoyed her life, always mak- ing the best of even the most im- possible situations, " comments her roommate Alexis Southard. " She was the best friend I ' ve ever had and the best one I ever will have. " Debbie, as her friends call her, was an early elementary educa- tion major who enjoyed all types of music. Debra was a caring person who would do anything for her friends. " No matter what anyone did to her, she never wished them any harm, " continues Southard. " She wanted to be a teacher who takes an interest in the welfare of her students beyond the classroom. " Debbie first attended Union her freshman year in 1985. She was of- ferred a job in Lexington, so she went to the University of Ken- tucky for her sophomore year. Debbie soon became homesick for Union because of the closeness and unity of people on campus, so she returned this year for her junior year. Debbie and Darrell were not strangers to Union. They had both been a part of the Upward Bound program on campus before 12 our memories.... Darrell E. Wayne attending Union. They became very close to all the people in the program. Darrell met his friend and roommate Jeff Smith while in the Upward Bound program. " Darrell was a true friend. If anyone was in need, he was there to lend a hand, " says Smith. " He was a happy person and wanted the people around him to be hap- py also. " Darrell loved Hank Williams Jr., and country music as well as sports. " He loved to play football, " says Smith, " but he wasn ' t en- thusiastic about going to college- I think he was doing it for his family, not himself-it wasn ' t his goal to go through college. " Smith comments that Darrell was close to his family and would often come back from the weekend talking about his grand- mother. " He admired Debra, " says Smith. " He was proud that she was his sister. " " She was Darrell ' s mother. She watched over him and took care of him, " says Southard. " She was also Darrell ' s friend. He ' d tell her his problems and she ' d solve them. " The bond between them was upheld by Darrell. Darrell and Debra loved each other very much, just as we loved them. Although we are terribly saddened that they are gone from us, we feel that they are happy now because they are together. remember you always making me laugh, when I was determined to cry. remember you showing me back into life, when I stopped to let it pass by. remember you facing the world with a smile, though sometimes it frowned in return. remember you teaching me so many things, although you were here to learn. remember you making the rain look like sunshine, and the sunshine look like heaven tself. remember the love that you gave. It is now a great port of my soul and myself. 13 :-.«vv:- :% w ::%?

These sorts of things should be expected when one lives in a dormitory. I should know - during the three school years I ' ve lived in Pfeiffer Hall, all of them have happened to me more than once. But there are many positive aspects to living in the dorm. It has provided me with the oppor- tunity to live among people like myself who go through the same things that I do. No one said col- lege would be easy, and it is com- forting to have people around you who understand what you are go- ing through. It is a kind of ' ' We ' re-all-in-this-together ' ' sort of feeling, and knowing that no matter what the problem, there ' s got to be someone around who has been in a similar situation. I ' ve had a chance to develop friendships that might not have formed if I didn ' t live in the dorm, and for this opportunity, I am thankful. Although Mom ' s homecooked meals and my own bathroom would be nice, I ' m satisfied living in the dorm. It has given me many special memories and some great times that I will never forget. -Paula R. Whitaker Br dgeffe Hobbs - skipping class again. 14 A Poem by Jimmy Means Living in the men ' s dorm, it ' s not so bad; you ' re away from home and especially your Dad. While in the men ' s dorm, you must obey the rules; like not raising hell or being too cool. For if you break a rule, you put yourself on the line; for the big " Sarge " to give you a fine. Living with others you must respect privacy and show respect; for if you don ' t, you will receive neglect. There are some rules about cleanliness, too, such as helping out " Claus " and keeping your room. For if you ' re a king and your room is your castle, you have to keep it clean and there will be no hassle. Stealing from others, now that is a big crime; becau se if you ' re caught, you ' ll be laying in a box of pine. Making new friends and living on your own is " what it is about " when you are away from home. Becoming a part of a family is what you achieve; learning to live with others and not wanting to leave. " They just don ' t make ' em like they used to 3 15 Mmm, mmm ( good ! ? • When you eat the same food day after day after day, it all starts tasting the same. That ' s the biggest complaint students have about Union ' s cafeteria -- everything is too bland. However, food services management contends that they are improving, and several new dishes were introduced during second semester. The pita sandwiches and seafood Creole were especially popular. In a survey conducted by senior Frank Newman for his newswriting course, students indicated that they found the variety of foods offered was inade- quate, but that service overall was ac- ceptable. Students were content with both the speed of service and cleanliness, the surevey showed. Also, the transferability option, which allows students to eat at the Student Center during certain hours, was very popular. Students indicated that they don ' t like having to buy a meal ticket, and they also believe that having to pay for missed meals is un- fair, according to Newman ' s survey. The food service is run by Profes- sional Management. The campus director is Mike Ayers. Ayers is a graduate of Shepard College in Shepardstown, W.Va. He has a master ' s degree in food service management. According to Ayers, because PFM is a small company, the director has more latitude in making decisions and is better able to meet each individual school ' s needs. 17 HEY! Off-Campus Hangouts The students of Union College are faced with the same dilemma every year: Where to hangout. Of course, with such a wide span of opportunities, the decision is never an easy one. One of the favorites is the Mid- dlesboro Mall where clothing stores, an arcade, and a six cinema theatre provide entertain- ment and fun for those who enjoy endless racks of clothing, talking computers, and the big screen. Then, of course there ' s O ' Riley ' s Pub in Richmond, Ky., not far from the campus of Eastern Kentucky University. Despite the hour and a half drive, Union students flock by the car- loads to this favorite hangout which provides fun and exciting nightlife for those who travel the distance. Next, there ' s the Barbourville tradi- tion. " Cruizin " is a very popular pass-time. Although mainly a high school activity, many college students enjoy driving up and down Knox Street, circling the square, yell- ing at friends as they, too, drive by. And a night of cruizin ' wouldn ' t be complete without stopping in the Union Plaza parking lot and convers- ing with fellow cruizers. Corbin, approximately 15 miles to the West of Barbourville, pro- vides students with a shopping center, varieties of restaurants in- cluding the popular Hunan Chinese Restaurant, yogurt and ice cream shops and a four cinema theatre. % Then, there ' s Union ' s own Student Center which provides a wide variety of board games such as Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Pictionary, pool tables, video games and a snack bar. So, it is obvious Union students have a big decision to make. Don ' t make it hasty; where to hangout should never be taken lightly. t ♦ -Paula R.

Having one to share these special times makes college so much easier. Always knowing there ' s someone there to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on is so comforting when times get tough. Having someone to laugh with and share the good times makes them that much better. 21 FRIENDS WHO ARE X6X0 ? % to We have all, at one rime or another, known the feeling of yearning for the company of a special person who is far away from us. Attending college requires many sacrifices and sometimes we must leave behind special people in order to pursue our education. Long distance love is sometimes a hard thing to deal with. Here are two Union students on how they cope with being away from the one they love. Jeff ' Cheeze ' Fryman, a senior at Union, and his fiance June Gutapfel, who attends college in Columbus, Oh. have been engaged since December 1986. In dealing with theii separation, Fryman says they call and write a lot. They get to see each other one weekend out of every month. " The weekends aren ' t long enough and the time between visits goes slow, " says Fryman. " It ' s hard being away from her, " he adds. " We ' ve never been able to spend an extended amount of time together. I ' m looking forward to fin- ding out how we will get along after we are married. " --Paula R. Whitaker Todd Anderson is senior from Colum- bus, Oh. He and Patti Vavrick from Holmdel, N.J. have been dating since September 1985. They recently became engaged to be married Feb. 5, 1988. According to Anderson, the first time they were separated for an extended period of time, they talked on the phone everyday. " Fear of growing apart over the sum- mer kept us interested in keeping the relationship alive, so we worked very hard at that, " says Anderson. The most difficult aspect about their relationship is that Vavrick is 17 months older; so the couple didn ' t graduate together. " She ' s already into her career, and it ' s a small disadvantage for us, but we ' ve overcome it well, " adds Anderson. The couple must also overcome their religious differences. Vavrick is a Roman Catholic and Anderson is a candidate for ministry in the United Methodist Church. What helped them, according to Anderson, was a strong sense of committment to their individual spiritual journey. Also, the couple realized they couldn ' t let pre- judiced people ruin the relationship between with them. " Ultimately, other people are happy when you ' re happy. Because of that, Patti and I focus on the positive aspects of our relationship and people have warmed up to it, ' ' Anderson ad- ded. -Paula R. Whitaker 22 ABSENT SPEAK . . . Above. Af the Post Office, anxious students in high hopes of mail. Below: James Holland is a lucky one. Living on campus could make any student homesick. So what better way to cheer him up than by sen- ding a letter. The student strolls down to the Student Center in- hopes of finding an envelope in his mailbox with his name on it. The student turns his combina- tion and pops open the box. Cries of joy are heard. " A letter, a real live letter, not just campus mail. " Some of the other students open their mail right away, while others wait until they get to the dorm, safely in their rooms, as they savor the moment. Unfor- tunately everyday is not this ex- citing. On some days students rush to the post office hoping to- find a letter, especially the kind with money in it, and nothing is there. Not even dreaded campus mail. The students just walk away with disappointment in their eyes and hope for a better tomorrow. -Mate Davis 23 BREATH Sometimes we forget - Sometimes even they forget - That commuters are students, too! Editor ' s Note: Al- though it wasn ' t easy, we made a ' mad dash ' and caught up with two of these busy people to ask them how they feel about livina life in the From ' ' ' • commuters Sherry Barnes, Jerry Jackson and Craig Monroe take a moment fast lane, and this is f pose for a picture. what they have to say. m 24 ' " ----- :.iU E S By Craig Monroe Commuters at Union College. Are they the majority that feels like a minority on the college scene? Well, that depends on the individual. Commuters at Union College are the majority of stu- dents, but many feel like out- siders who are not part of the tightly knit college family. The key to being part of it all is one simple word: involvement. Getting involved is the answer, because when you are, you ' ll not find anywhere a more concerned and open staff and students. If you commute from a distance like the 30 mile round-trip I drive, vou want to cut the tra- veling time from home down to one trip per day. Instead of leav- ing right after a certain class, you go and see what other people are doing. Activities at Union College in- clude a variety of things. To pass the time, a commuter may go to the Student Center where he or she can play a video game, catch a bite to eat, watch a little television or just sit around and talk to friends. My own experience as a com- muter has shown me that Union is a friendly place, full of friendly people. You just have to go out there and meet them. By Ann Sergeant When I first decided to come to Union,my mother asked me if I wanted to live in the dorm. No, I didn ' t want to live in the dorm, because I knew what that meant; visitation rules, dorm meetings, quiet hours, communi- ty showering and an occasional alarm going off if someone forgot that they couldn ' t go out the back door after hours. So, I took my chances and decided to rent the bottom half of a house with two other people I didn ' t even know before I came here. This turned out to be a nice little situation, because I could come and go as I pleased, and although I did have to share the bathroom, our non-existant visitation rules provided a place of social gathering and slumber parties, whichever the case may be. Being a commuter, I sometimes wonder if I might have missed out on the kind of friendships that come only when people live together. I don ' t really feel that I ' ve missed anything by not living on campus, and I think the only thing I would have done different- ly is that I would not have paid five dollars for a parking sticker that I was later told they never checked. ONION COLLEGE LIBRAE BARBOUBVILLE. KY 4090t 25 Chapel Services Add New I M N S I — o- N - S Chapel services at Union College add a special dimension to the religious life of the school. There are no regularly scheduled Sunday services; however, there is a chapel service each Tuesday. There are also special events throughout the year, such as the hanging of the greens at Christmas time. A feature of many of the chapel ser- vices is musical performances by in- dividual members of both the faculty and the student body, including groups like the Union College Singers. The open forum gives students, faculty and staff an oppor- tunity to share with each other and also to create 3 special feeling of com- munity and family on Union ' s small campus. Chapel programs are under the direc- tion of Dr. Michael McCoy. McCoy, campus minister and associate pro- fessor of religion and philosophy, is a new face at Union this year. His views on life, college and religion reflect the basic foundations stressed at Union. It is McCoy ' s philosophy that Union, as a liberal arts college, is concerned not only with teaching students how to make a living, which is but a small portion of one ' s life, but is also concerned with teaching peo- ple how to make a life that involves living in a world with other people. McCoy stresses the concerns of the school community with his an- nouncements at every chapel service. It is his belief that sharing joys and concerns teaches us how to function together as a community. The Religious Life Center serves as a meeting place for students and religious clubs. McCoy feels that the Center and the chapel services help enliven the campus and contribute to the school ' s religious identity and personality. McCoy believes that the value of a person is his religious identity and that the ideal of the Christian religion is the underlying " pulse " of all that he does on campus. -Barbara Yeager ' 26 Photo by Craig Monro 27 Union is host to many foreign students FAR FROM HOME WalMd Waleed Abuzour, a freshman major- ing in mechanical engineering is from Jerusalem. He has spent one year in the United States and loves the freedom of the country and the educa- tional system. Abuzour ' s biggest pro- blems in adjusting were with the language accent and religion. His religion, which is Moslem, doesn ' t allow Abuzour to talk to girls-and older women around the ages of 40 or 50. So the first time he talked to young women was upon coming to the U.S. He still finds it difficult sometimes. Abuzour ' s future plans are still uncertain, however, he wants to attain a masters degree in mechanical engineering. Tahlr Arriving in the United States two- and-one-half-years ago, Tahir Chaudry, from Pakistan, didn ' t know any English. While visiting his brother in Corbin, he decided he wanted to attend school at Union Col- lege. Now, the senior accounting ma- jor speaks English almost fluently. Chaudry says the biggest difference he had to adjust to coming to America was the role women played in American society. In his country, women do not work outside the home. Chaudry also practices the Moslem religion which allows him to have as many as four wives. But Chaudry commented that while this is legal, about 98 percent of the men in Pakistan have only one wife. " It is to protect the women, " Chaudry says. " There are so many more women than men, it is better for them (to have to share a husband) than not to marry at all. " Sundeep Sundeep Shankwalkar is a senior chemistry major from Bombay, India. He is combining his major with minors in Math and Physics hoping someday to enter the field of chemical engineering. Shankwalkar has been in the United States for two and a half years and c ays the hardest adjustment he had to Waleed Abuzour make was to the American peoples ' accents and to the country ' s educa- tion system which is quite different from that in India. He enjoys seeing the " beautiful coun- tryside " associated with Kentucky, but says his favorite place in the United States is New Jersey. " Enthusiasm among teachers is good, if they see a student ' s potential, " Shankwalkar says about the pro- fessors at Union. " They do whatever they can to help you out. Student- teacher interaction is excellent in every field. " Shankwalkar ' s future plans include graduate school in the Ph.D. program in material engineering at the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania. He will also be working on an M.B.A. at the school of management. Then he will be joining corporate life. Norah Norah Tibizayo is a senior from Ugan- da, Africa and comes from a family of four brothers and six sisters. She will graduate in May with a major in business administration and a minor in economics. Norah has been living in the United States for seven years. She has been at Union College for the past four years. The biggest difference between Ugan- da and the U.S. according to Tibizayo is that the opportunity to get a college education is greater in the U.S. Col- leges in Uganda are few and competi- tion in being accepted into one is fierce. What Tibizayo likes best about the U.S. is the freedom and the ability to be on her own. After graduation, Tibizayo plans to go to Washington D.C. where she will try to find employment in the field of business. 29 We lost another friend Troy Hampton Once again sadness falls upon the Union College family as we mourn the passing of another member of our student body. Troy Allen Hampton, 21, of Artemus, Ky., died unexpectedly on March 15 at St. Joseph ' s Hospital in Lexington. Troy had been quite ill and had been in and out of the hospital for quite some time. Troy was preceded in death by an in- fant sister, Donna Ann Hampton and his paternal grandparents George Reed and Ruby Hampton. Troy is survived by his parents, Ernest Allen Hampton and Louvella Lee Hampton of Artemus; his mater- nal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lee of Barbourville, many aunts, uncles and cousins. A memorial service was held in Con- way Boatman Chapel on Tuesday, March 22 in honor of Troy. Members of the student body, administrative staff and close friends of Troy spoke on his behalf. Although Troy ' s parents did not at- tend the service, they sent a message to Union students to " study hard and make something of themselves, ' ' just as they had urged Troy to do. Even though Troy was quite ill, most of his classmates never knew it. Troy was filled with " good humor, op- timism and joy, " stated Dr. Michael McCoy, who presided over the memorial service. Troy was the third member of the stu- dent body to die this school year. - Kim Parks 30 YOU in sports It was ust one of th seasons for the Bulldogs 9M m® 4 i m Photos In this section were taken by Jeff " Choezo " Fryman, Todd Anderson and Willie Coffey. There was plenty of excitement at the beginning of the Union College 1987 football season. The Bulldogs were coming off a 7-3 campaign in 1986 and were ranked 18 th in the final NA1A polls. Also, Union was ranked 19th in the pre-season polls and were beginning their first year in the new Mid-South Conference. The excitement died quickly as the Bulldogs lost their first four games by a combined score of 139-26. Those losses came against Georgetown, Millsaps, Wingate and Evansville. 32 JNION COLLEGE a±- Head coach John Ross never let his players lose faith, and the Bulldogs responded by winning two of then- next three games. They crushed Lam- buth and lost to Hanover before Union defeated Kentucky Wesleyan to win the John Wesley Trophy for the second straight year. The Bulldogs ended their season on a sour note by losing their last three games to West Virginia Wesleyan, Cumberland and Georgia Southwestern. This gave Union a final record of 2-8 and a conference record of 1-3. ...:::: ....

In addi- tion to finding replacements for the six seniors, who graduated last year, there was a change at the top when Scott Jolly became head coach. The season began optimistically as the Bulldogs split their first eight games. In the final game before the Christmas break (against Camp- bellsville) Fred Callaway set a new team record by scoring 45 points! When the Bulldogs returned from the break Callaway and Greg Wimberly, became academically ineligible and were no longer with the team. This left Jolly with the task of rebuilding the team once more, by using his precious reserves. Union finished with an overall record of 12-18 while posting a 6-8 mark in the conference. The Bulldogs finished fourth in the KIAC and sixth in the NAIA District 32 standings. This was the fouth season, in a row, that the Bulldogs qualified for the district playoffs, a feat equalled only by Cumberland and Georgetown Col- leges. James Harrison led the Bulldogs, at the close of the season, averaging 16.5 points, and also averaged 5.9 assists per game. These stats helped Harrison receive All-District and All- Conference honors. Undrae Mitchell also had a fine season, averaging 13.6 points per game. He added 6.5 rebound to the Bulldogs offense and shot 58% from the field. Carl Wallace was the team ' s third leading scorer with 13 points per game. Steve Payne was the leading foul shooter, hitting the bucket 86% horn the charity stripe. Union ' s lone senior, Darrin Morris, averaged nine points and five re- bounds per game. 38 ■ • • ■ ' .

More than 200 people attend- ed the banquet, which honored the hard-working men and women in the Bulldog athletic pro gram. The highlight of the program was the presentation of awards in the different sports. Team MVP awards and Most Improved awards were handed out as part of the festivities. The big awards given out were the Union College Athlete of the Year and the Danny Drinkard Award, the runner-up to Athlete of the Year. Missy Hutchins was named Athlete of the Year, while Darwin Vickery was the recipient of the Danny Drinkard Award.

Vickery, a 6 ' 1 " senior from Hodgen- ville, Ky., was one of the key players for the baseball Bulldogs this past season. He was a co-captain and an all-around leader for the team. In the statistical department, Vickery was very impressive. He batted .410, slugged nine home runs and drove in 44 runs. As a relief pitcher, Vickery compiled a 1-0 won loss record with five saves and a 0.00 earned-run average. 60 ATHLETE OF The Union College Athlete of the Year for 1988 is Missy Hutchins. " Hutch " is a 5 ' 9 " senior from Spr- ingfield, Ky. She helped carry the Lady Bulldog basketball team into the conference and district playoffs. Hutchins averaged more than 20 points per game and grabbed 10 re- bounds per contest. She was named K.I.A.C. Player of the Week twice during the season. Hutchins earned one of those honors with a record- setting performance on Dec. 7. On that night, she set a Lady Bulldog record by scoring 42 points in a game. Post-season honors included Player of the Year Awards in both the K.I.A.C. and the N.A.I.A. District 32. Hut- chins was also an honorable mention All-American and Academic Ail- American selection by the N.A.I.A.

The 1988 Union College tennis team began the season with a victory over conference rival Campbellsville. However, things took a negative turn when the Bulldogs lost their next seven matches. The ' Dawgs tried to get back into contention but were hampered by in- experience and injuries. They did manage to fare well in the conference tournament. The squad was led by seniors Albert York, Gerald Hyde and Nick Parulekar and junior Barry Burch. Ad- ding depth to this year ' s team were scholarship freshmen Joe Bishman and Ian McLean. Completing the roster were newcomers Bryan Erslan, Junior DiStefano, Nathan Gambrel and Jeff Fryman. The tennis ' Dawgs were coached by Allan Green, while Ed Maher and Mack Napier served as team managers. 62 ft i i l lWIW n 63 The Union College swim team, the Bullfrogs, participated in three inter- collegiate competitions, including one at Berea College, one here at Union and the state meet at Tran- sylvania University. The first contest was a dual meet held on Jan. 13. The Bullfrogs suffered a defeat against a tough Berea team on Berea ' s home surf. On Feb. 13 a squad meet was head at Union. Par- ticipants included Asbury College, Berea, Morehead State University, and Union. Again, the Bullfrogs were unable to pull out a victory, ending up in fourth place. Most recently, the state meet at Tran- sylvania was on Feb. 18-20. Par- ticipants there were Asbury, Berea, Centre College, Transylvania, Morehead State, Union, and the University of Kentucky women ' s team. Albert York took fourth place in the 200 yard backstroke, but overall the Union team finished last. Despite the setbacks, the outlook for the Bullfrogs remains optimistic for next year. This year ' s competition consisted of some strong and well- financed athletic programs. The potential for improvement is present, and encouraging. The members of the swim team in- clude: Coach Mike Baldwin, captain Jeff Fryman, co-captains Albert York and Anita Sparenberg, Eric Bowling, Barbara Duffy, Lesa Foley, John Taft, Scott Miracle, Karen Weaver and Terry Welch.

The concert was held in the Student Center lounge on Tuesday Sept. 1, 1987. Husky, who tours the United States with his show of music and folk humor, will be cutting a record sometime this year. As a native of North Carolina, Husky treated the audience to what was probably the most memorable piece entitled, " Aunt Bee " in honor of the fictional character on the Andy Griffith Show.

It was per- formed Oct. 15, 16 and 17 at the Rec- tor Little Theatre. The play was directed by Dr. Rebecca Pettys. The packed house was entertained each night by a highly talented bunch of individuals. The play was about a messy, sloppy character, Oscar, played by Ron Vanover, who takes in a clean, tidy, roomate, Felix, played by Marc Roland. The play included many hilarious scenes that involved Felix and Oscar ' s card-playing bud- dies who were played by Bryan Erslan, Mat Chambers, Jon Oliver and Edward A. Maher IE. The Pigeon sisters were played by Billie Jo Stokes and Alexis M. Southard. The performance itself was great. You could tell it took many long hours of rehearsal and set construction.

" The Odd Couple, " a Neil Simon play, the major production of the fall semester, premiered that weekend. Saturday began with an open house hosted by President and Mrs. Jack Phillips at Baldwin Place. Then later in the afternoon the Bulldogs took on the Panthers of Kentucky Wesleyan in the an- nual Homecoming football game. Both teams were fighting for the coveted John Wesley Trophy which the Panthers had retained when the two teams tied one another last season. Union beat Kentucky Wesleyan in their most stunning victory of the season, 34-13. The weekend ended with the in- troduction of Homecoming Princess and Queen Courts, following the alumni banquet. The Homecoming Queen for 1987 was Miss Tracy Howard of Louisville, Ky., and the princess was Miss Norma Huerta of Denver, Colo. -Todd Anderson Princess Norma Huerta. 78 RoommoJes Tracy Howard, left, and Norma Huerto ore we Homecoming queen and princess.

To aid in the success of this year ' s inferno, Michael used lighter fluid, in liberal fashion, to generate flames that jumped around 20 feet high. The wood for the fire was enti rely consumed, the students were " fired up " , but the Bulldogs were extinguished on the field of play that Saturday, losing to the Tigers 37-10.

There are 13 contracted cadets in Union ' s ROTC. The national average in similar programs is aroun d 25-30 cadets, making Union ' s program about half the national average. ROTC consists of two types of pro- grams, according to Capt. DeWayne Brewer. The first is the basic program, which introduces the students to ROTC and gives a look at the military through participation in If. Col. David Relmold, confer, professor of military science of Eosfern Kenfucky University, presents an ROTC training trophy to Union ' s four senior ROTC cadets. Accepting the trophy are from left, Ricky Parker, Union ROTC Instructor Capt. DeWayne Brewer, John Luttrell, Tony Davis and Gerald Jones. Army maneuvers. There is no con- tract in the basic program. The second type is the advanced program, in which there is a contract, and one can train to become an officer in the ar-. my, such as lieutenant. The contract is signed and certain criteria must be met to fulfill it. Capt. Brewer stated that the benefits in ROTC are very good, and that the benefits depend on what one ' s goals are. Of the benefits offered, the simultaneous membership program pays you as a guard through the G.I. Bill approximately $140 monthly. In your junior year the program pays $100 monthly and you have the op- portunity to attend an ROTC summer camp and earn $700. In the summer of 1987 two cadets were recognized nationally by achiev- ing the highest score, a 5, at summer camp. John Lutrell and Patrick Evans were the two cadets recognized. In May 1988, four young men were commissioned as lieutenants. Comis- sioned were, John Lutrell, Ricky Parker, Gerald Jones and Anthony Davis. 85 The dream lives on ubz c To remember the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, A.C.E. sponsored the showing of the film From Mon- tgomery to Memphis and a chapel ser- vice led by Dr. William Turner. From Montgomery to Memphis was shown in the Student Center Lounge on Monday, Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. Those who watched the film were filled with awe as Harry Belefonte described King. Belefonte, a friend of the late Civil Rights leader, spoke of the man that did not want to be remembered for his acts, because they were acts of King ' s heart, acts that King thought were right. The film covers the events of the Civil Rights Movement: the Mont- gomery bus boycott, protests at Selma, Ala., Chicago, 111., and Wahington, D.C., where King gave his famous Have a Dieam speech. The following day at 9:30 a.m., A.C.E. ' s celebration continued with a chapel program in honor of the birth- day of King. The guest speaker was Dr. William Turner. A native of Lynch, Ky., Turner is professor of sociology at Winston Salem College. He is co-editor of Blacks in Ap- palachia, the only book that covers the roles of blacks in the development of the Appalachian region. Turner holds degrees from the University of Kentucky and Notre Dame Universi- ty- In addition to Turners ' address, three dramatic readings were given by Union students Mate Davis, Dwanna Morris and Byron Smoot. Also, Bernard Culliver sang Amazing Grace. The service closed with a prayer that all would be mindful of the work of peo- ple like Dr. Martin Luther King. — Mate Davis 86 front row, right to loft.

Dr. William Turner 87 Iphigeneia The Greek tragedy Iphigeneia at Aulis was performed in the Rector Little Theatre February 18-21 1988. The play is set in the port city of Aulis, prior to the Trojan War, where the Greek fleet has been at anchor for eight years, waiting a fair wind. Agamemnon must decide whether to follow an oracle which directs him to sacrifice his oldest child, Iphigeneia, to provide a safe journey for the army and an easy victory over the Trojans. Agamemnon was played by Mark Clifford. His brother, King Menelaus, was played by Jeff Smith. The play began with some in- novative and exotic lighting in a scene between Agamemnon and his trusted servant, an old man. This character was played by Frank Newman on Thursday and Satur- day nights and by Marc Roland on Friday night and Saturday after- noon. The role of Clytemnestra was played by Diann Morgan. She gave an energetic portrayal of the betrayed queen. Linda Parrott portrayed Iphigeneia as a gentle child who is forced into maturity. She and Mark Clifford did a good job showing the closeness between father and daughter. Achilles, played by Craig A. Monroe, added a humorous touch to the bleak plot. His look of sur- prise after Clytemnestra announc- ed the impending marriage, to Iphigeneia, will long be remembered. He is flattered by the arranged marriage, and vows to go through with the ceremony. Greg Duncam played the messenger who delivered the news Dlann Morgan, Linda Parrott, Mark CltHord of Iphigeneia ' s arrival. A fine addition, to the cast, was Jermey Vancil, who was Orestes. The chorus was composed of Judy Bush, Lynn Carl, Rebecca Pettys, Lisa Lewis and Ann Sergeant. They did a good job bringing to life the necessary information between story scenes. They did a great job enlivening the performance. The costuming was excellent, and gave the impression that they were wearing vintage clothing of the Grecian era. Also, the simple set was a further asset to the play. The play was technically sound and was enhanced by the dramatic music offered by electronic means. Mary Ann Bingham was the clarinetist. -Todd Anderson 88 Craig Monroe and D ann Morgan At Aulis Chorus.

The broad range of Union ' s musical talent was also put into perspective and became the high point of the evening with many talented young ar- tists to perform the 28 songs with a high level of robust energy that many seemed to enjoy. Stars of the cast included Ronnie VanOver as the Pirate King, Anita Sparenberg as Ruth, Jon Oliver as Frederick, Billie Jo Stokes as Mabel, Jim Ricotta as Major-General Stanley and Hubert van Tuyll as the Sergeant of Police.

We call him Pepe because he ' s so fast on his feet. All we ever see of him is a brown blur followed by an enormously long tail. Anyway, since we already share our quarters with Pepe, we ' ve decided to adopt him as the Journalism Program mascot. So, without further ado, we welcome Pepe to the Journalism Program, and we hereby make him an official member of the Union Express staff. c 94 Express jntSy for the students Mark Clifford 0 p% Whew! Whew! What a year! What with trying to train two new advisers this year, we hardly had any time for just goof- ing off the way newspaper staffs are supposed to. In the fall, Howard Dan- ner, a new religion and speech in- structor, was our adviser. In the spr- ing, we got Debbie van Tuyll, the journalism instructor. It was sort of like getting a whole new set of parents each semester. But we survived, and we ' ve even lived to tell the story.

The president ' s major ac- complishments include balancing the budget, increasing enrollment, in- troducing non-scholarship football, adding a wing to the library and drill- ing the gas well. The gas well will save the college as much as $5 million in energy costs before it dies sometime in the next century. Phillips said that the gas well is one of Union ' s " creative " ways of making money. " Small colleges have to be creative in their efforts to produce revenue, " Phillips explained. " Union is one of only two colleges in the country that I know of which have drilled gas wells to supplement their energy costs. " The president expects a bright future for the college. Presently Union is raising money to build a $2 million cafeteria addition to the Student Center. Also in the works are plans to convert the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial into a recreational centerl office complex. In the near future, an addition will be built to the Fine Arts Building. Currently a fund drive is underway to establish two $5 million endowments for the college. One of the endowments will be used for faculty salary supplements while the other will be used for student aid. A question Phillips is often asked is, " What does it take to become a col- lege president? " He answers, " One has to aspire to be one. A college president must exemplify good ad- ministrative skills, wisdom in budgeting and fund raising, and be willing to deal with students and per- sonnel. " President and Mrs. Phillips came to Union in 1983, already having a great deal of experience in higher educa- tion. Mrs. Phillips, a Thomaston, Ga. native, has been financial aid officer at both Birmingham-Southern and Scarriot colleges. Dr. Phillips graduated from Birmingham-Southern in 1960 with an A.B. degree. That same year, the Phillips were married at Trinity Methodist Church in Opelika, Ala. Following his undergraduate work, Phillips attended Vanderbilt Universi- ty where he received a master of divinity degree in 1963. In 1981, Phillips received an honorary doctor of laws degree from Union. Following his seminary days, Phillips held many positions in higher educa- tion, including: director of church relations at Birmingham Southern; assistant development officer at Florida Southern University; ex- ecutive director of development and assistant to the president at the University of Alabama; executive director of development at Marshall University; president of the National Methodist Foundation. Phillips holds ministerial credentials in the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church. The Phillips enjoy their duties as president and first lady of Union Col- lege, said Phillips. " We wake us every morning excited to be a part of the college family, " he concluded. -Todd Anderson 101 Administrators Are Union ' s Backbone President Jack C.

Many students say they take the evaluations serious- ly, especially if they have negative com- ments to make about a teacher. They say they agonize over the ef- fects negative com- ments might have on an instructor ' s feelings or career. " Nobody claps at the end of class. All we have are the comments people write on teacher evaluations, " said Dr. Andelys Wood, head of the English Department at Union Col- lege. Teacher evaluations are surveys that are given once a year to students so they can comment on teacher perfor- mance. The evaluations consist of two parts: a numerical rating section which asks students to rate instructors ' capabilities on a scale from one to five and an essay section where the stu- dent may write comments. " I feel as though the essay part is wor- thwhile, " said Dr. Wood. Many pro- fessors said that they find the essay the most helpful. Dr. Ella Hensley of the Business Department said that teachers really take the evaluations seriously. ' ' The students also take them serious- ly, " Dr. Hensley said. " It ' s their only opportunity to say something. But I do feel as though there ' s a great deal of apathy. A lot of students feel that it (the teacher evaluation process) is an empty promise. " " Yes, we take them seriously, " said Robin Hornsby, education senior from Cincinnati, Ohio. Some students, however, said that they weren ' t given enough time to complete the evaluations and to do a great deal of writing since the forms are given out at the end of class. Dr. Paul S. Moore, vice president for academic affairs at Union, said that the policy of giving out evaluations at the end of class was set up before he came into his office. It was done so that the teacher could leave the room and students could write freely without the teacher ' s presence. " We never see the sheet that the stu- dent fills out. All we get is a computer printout with numbers and com- ments, " said Dr. Wood. ' ' There is a matter of time involved in trying to facilitate giving the evalua- tions, " Moore said, when explaining the reasons why the evaluation is given only once a year, " It takes days for one to two secretaries to do the comments. " typed, they go to instructors ' division and department heads and then to the individual teachers. " This year, the administration is go- ing to try to reward teachers who are really trying to work hard, " said Dr. Hensley. " I know of specific in- cidents where the teacher has changed teaching habits. However, the ad- minstration has never told a teacher to change. " Moore said that as a teacher he found the evaluations quite useful. " You have to really look for subtle things, " he said. Teachers have never been reprimand- ed or fired because of the evaluations, administrators say. The evaluations are, however, used in promotion and tenure decisions and are a part of the professors ' performance ratings. Moore, said that the evaluations are used as a part of the total evaluation of faculty. Student evaluations and the teachers ' self evaluations aid in promotion decisions. " They are really for self improve- ment, " Moore said, " The idea is to use the evaluations to make the teacher a better teacher, not as a punishment. " Moore said that generally most ot the comments that come in are good. However, note is taken when a number of negative comments come ' in about a particular instructor, Moore said. Since the teacher evaluations are only given once a year, the negative com- ments on a teacher evaluation would seem to be the major problem. The comments are typed in the The teachers never see the original Academic Affairs Office. The only people to see the hand-written ver- sions are the secretaries who do the typing. Once the evaluations are evaluation from the student. This is done so that the student may remain anonymous. -Ann Sergeant 106 YOU in classes FRESHMEN Missy Abboff Music Education Middtesboro, Kentucky Woleed Abuzour Pre-Engineering Louisville, Kentucky Bill Adams Physical Education West Van Lear, Kentucky Divine Adlka Dwayne Andrews Sherry Bailey Biology Major Undecided Business Administration Brooklyn, New York Gonzales, Louisiana Paris, Kentucky Pom Bentley History London, Kentucky V Curt Biliter Computer Science Pineville, Kentucky Mark Calitrl Major Undecided Richmond, Kentucky 108 Lynn Carl Education Barbourvllle, Kentucky Mat Chambers Music Cedar Bluff, Virginia Devonda J.

No, it wasn ' t. I beg your pardon. I said it wasn ' t a dark and stor- my night. She ' s right, you know. She is? She is. This is a journalism class. We have to be full, fair and accurate. That ' s right. We can ' t tell our readers it was a dark and stormy night when it wasn ' t. Alright, alright, alright. It was a dark and stormy afternoon . . . I ' m sorry. That just doesn ' t sound right. Do it right or don ' t do it at all. Alright. It was a dark and stormy afternoon. We gathered around a rickety table in Centennial 102 and talked about what to do with the 1987-88 Stespean. The after- noon got darker and stormier. So did Mrs. van Tuyll. She told us we weren ' t going anywhere until we came up with a theme for the yearbook. Even if the building blew away. She looked like she was serious. We started sweating. Then, lightening flared outside and thunder rattl- ed the typesetter ' s circuit boards. Someone jumped up and shouted, " I have it. ' It was a dark and stormy night. ' " Nor- ma didn ' t like that very much, and Mrs. van Tuyll frowned. The wind crackled through the air-conditioners. " How about, ' You were there, ' since we ' re all about to be gonners anyway, " someone else said. We messed around with it a little bit, and finally Todd proposed, " What about ' You are here? ' That ' s a little more immediate and com- pelling. " We all kind of like it, and Mrs. van Tuyll smiled. And so the theme was born. We hope you enjoyed this first thematic approach to the Stespean. We hope you found it as interesting and compelling as we do. And if you have any ideas for next year ' s book, let us know. It won ' t be too much longer before Mrs. van Tuyll gets that gleam in her eyes that means we ' ll be gathering around that old rickety table again. But before that day comes, we have to thank some people for their contributions to this year ' s edition. They are: Ed de Rosset for helping with photography. Pete Moore for finding the money to fix the typesetter. Patti Vavrick for saying yes to Todd. Margo Grace of Delmar Publishing Co. for being such a big help. Candy Wood and Dianne Ferris for their support. Jason LeMay for help with photography. The four academic divisions for letting us reshoot their pictures again . . . and again Hubert van Tuyll for serving as repairman, confidant and sup- porter. Jim Kirby and John Carter of CompuGraphic for keeping the typesetter humming, even when they had other places to be. 143 COLOPHON Four hundred copies of the Stespean were printed by the Delmar Publishing Company of Charlotte, N.C. The approximate cost of publishing Volume 60 was $9,000. This 7 3 4 x 10 1 2 book contains 144 pages on 80-pound gloss paper. The cover of the book is navy blue vinyl printed with silver foil stamping. All body copy was set in 9 poim Trumph Medieval. Headlines use the Futura family of typefaces. Cutline; and photo credits were prepared in point Futura Italic. The Stespean staff prepared the firs camera-ready yearbook in th school ' s history. Typesetting wa done on the CompuGraphic Edit writer 7700 and 7200 headliner. Some Fun Facts We used enough typesetting film thi year to stretch from Centennial Hal all the way to Lakeside Center! If students had to pay for the Stespea it would cost $22.50. But you are luck, your student activitiy fee pay the cost! From the Editor Being a yearbook editor has been a exciting challenge. I am very proud ( our staff. Each has made a significai contribution to your yearbook. W found that producing a camera read book has given us the freedom to 1 extremely creative. Our publisher hi even suggested that we submit ov artwork for other yearbook staffs.
