The price of tuition will be required in ad- vance. " The date on the paper was Janu- ary 27, 1823. Union university was first called Southwestern Baptist College. It was originally located in Murfreesboro, Ten- nessee. The unity of Baptist movement, a lack of funds for the school and the desire for an institution in the western grand division of the state were the main reasons for moving the school to Jack- son. It was located northeast of the square on a beautiful site. The school prospered until 1912. A fire in January destroyed the college hall and the chapel. The fire spread so quickly that all anyone could do was to watch the buildings burn. The major event put the school in debt and caused the leadership to work exceedingly hard to keep the school open. Yet, they managed to meet the challenges of rebuilding and continu- ing the heritage of Union. In 1975, Union moved to its new campus of 190 acres located in North Jackson along Highway 45 By-Pass. Union has come a long way from those early days of a strict and quiet little establishment with a handful of students. Union still upholds the beliefs on which it was founded and gains from this factor. As a point of interest, we decided to list a few of Union ' s rules by which the students had to live over a century ago. 1) students were strictly required to be in their rooms from 6:30 to 10:30 to study. 2) all lights were to be out from 10:30 PM to 5:00 AM 3) students were not allowed to purchase items on credit at any store without the written permission of their parents. If you think those rules were funny, wait until you read this! A Mr. X was on trial for talking to the young ladies! After stating his case, he retired to his room. He was found guilty by the faculty and was excluded from the library for one month and was made to apologize to the ladies for insolence. Can you image what the faculty of 100 years ago would do if they came to the campus today and watched the students. ' 1 The cornerstone stating the construc- tion and reconstruction dates of Union ' s campus buildings. , Would you believe that this is the fitst Barton Hall? An impressive place! The Inevitable S What does it wean to be a senior? I guess ttiat ' s the question ttiat some of us in the class of 1987 will be asking ourselves all the way to graduation. (For convenience ' s sake, I will disre- gard those members of our class who seem to be oblivious to the great tran- sition about to occur in our lives.) I have talked with several other soon- to-be -graduates and found that they are experiencing the same melancholy that 1 am. This year, as opposed to the previous three, every moment is to be savored, remembered, and stored away as a treasured memory. Each party, each ball game, each heart-to- heart talk is made more special by the inevitable thoughts " this may be the last, " or " this time next year " What will life be like at Union when we ' re gone. ' ' What will we be doing after we leave? What will our lives be like then? I suppose I ' m not taking this very well — this business of being a senior. Perhaps I ' m taking it too seriously. I don ' t know. I only know what has happened with my friends who have already graduated. One year seemed to change them so drastically. That one year matured them — .gave them that bitter-sweet attitude about leaving Union, (or so it seemed to me). I also know what my parents have always said to me when I ' ve complained (heaven forbid!) about papers, classes, and too much to do. " These are the best four years of your life. " Are these the best years of our lives? Why? Do I really need to ask? Most of us have much less responsi- bility now than we will ever ha ve after we gain our degree. We are also in a somewhat protective environment now because we are surrounded by our Christian friends and faculty who are so willing to help us grow. After v. . ■ -; r V V : - - . m- , ' " m graduation, things will certainly change. I ' m not against change; in fact, I think I ' m pro -change. Only I ' m getting somewhat sentimental and I ' m gravely feeling my 21 years. Forgive us, our fellow students, and try to understand why we get a bit teary-eyed and all serious during hap- py fun -loving times. You see, we, the graduates of ' 87, have enough sense to know what we ' re leaving behind — those things that we will never be able to regain or experience again. The day we step across the stage (May 30, 1987), we will no longer be a part of you, the undergraduate students. And that, for me, and others of my class, is somehow, a source of regret.

Sugar Shack As one looks around the caw- pus. he sees many things. When one leaves the main building and makes his way back Co the dorm areas where the real student life abounds, he will notice a structure between the commons buildings known by the administration of the school as the Gazebo. The Gazebo provides a place for students to talk and relax in an outside setting. It is especially popular during the warmer months of the year. Stu ■ dents bring their recorders; they play music, and converse, and turn the " shack " into a party place. Some students have used the area for a barber shop while others have even attempted to study in this shelter. The Gazebo has a much more popular name coined by the stu- dents. We call this structure the " Sugar Shack " . The shack, at one time, had lights, but they never seemed to work. The students don ' t seem to mind, though; they continue to gather and utilize the open building. Most people take the Gazebo for granted and almost forget it ' s there. But, it would be missed if it were gone. The " sugar shack " provides a lot of memories. The freshmen notice the shack, but see no real purpose for it. The sophomores have learned that it ' s a great place to meet other folks. The juniors know that every season finds a new reason for the shack. The seniors know that without the shack, they probably would have failed a test or missed a talk with that special " friend. " The shack that started from a very humble beginning has become an integral part of student life, and, if the stu- dents have their way, it will remain there for many years to come for students to enjoy. All who read this article will remember some- thing funny or sad that took place in the " sugar shack. " Stop in and enjoy the Gazebo. If you listen closely enough when no one else is around, you may hear voices from the past speak and laugh. By the way, don ' t you wonder what it would tell you if it could talk. ' ' Chaos With Character X Chaos. Webster defines it as extreme confusion or disorder. Character is de- fined as moral strength or a specific trait of an individual or group. So, " chaos with character " is very appropriate for Union ' s students: extreme confusion with specific traits of moral strength. The campus ap- pears to ha ve people running around not knowing where they are going. In spite of this appearance, things are accomplished with a real flair for the unique. The dif- ferent events through the year give all an opportunity to enjoy Union to the fullest. All can remember the times they were fifteen minutes late for that all important test that determined an A or B (C or D for those normal students.) Many sleep- less nights were caused by practicing for cheers, all-sing, or just doing laundry for the next day. Through all of this, we managed to grow and learn — how, we ' re not totally sure. Would you believe that no matter how hard you try a day only has 24 hours.- ' We seem to work it out somehow through the chaos. So jump into the chaos and get some character! vk Q H I ' W mi tu JUKBlW M M 1 ¥ gS n I UI H Mi fff ' j ' f M ' liiiiiKii M iS TO w M iiiiiiiiii m s fflWW|W S SptK.. 1 4 1 Friendships X Gan- watches his friends on the intramural field. All students who walk the halls of Union go through adjustments, not only during the first few weeks of their freshmen year, but also right up to the last day of their senior year! Coming to Union has changed all of our lives in one way or another, whether we realize it or not! We meet new friends; we receive our first taste of life " out in the real world. " Many face the new changes and challenges with hesitancy. Those who have recentlv left the " Prom Queen " days of high school find that their first few days of col- lege are much different from what they ex- pected. However, most fmd that college life at Union is warm and receptive. Lasting friend- ships are quickly made. Many of these friendships grow into a special bond that becomes more than the word " Friend " im- plies. These friendships bring us together more like " Family " , made up of special peo- ple who know both your dreams and fears and help you find those seemingly fading Lisa and Pam cake time to converse in the ball fcerneen classes. Some students stay in shape by reg- ularly attending our aerobics classes. . . . Rainbows! Throughout the years at Union, students will laugh together and cry together. They will sup- port each other with a special kind of love that will last long after they leave the hallowed halls of Union. Michael W. Smith says it best; " Friends are friends forever if the Lord is the Lord of them! " As we look back across the years, one of the most prominent memories is our friendships. These friendships are what make our Union experiences so special. v 2ash Strikes It Rich X Miss Cash entered a local pageant dreaming of becoming Miss America, and it happened. Kellye began her climb to Miss America by capturing the title of Miss Milan Crown and Sceptor; after claiming her first victory, she never looked back. Miss Cash ' s big smile, fantastic talent and pretty figure were a captivating com- bination. Kellye was a major force in all areas of competition. In the talent com- petition, she sang and accompanied her- self on the piano while wearing black. Miss Cash was quoted as saying she guessed that it ran in the family. She is the grandniece of entertainer Johnny Cash. When she won the title of Miss Ten- nessee in Jackson ' s Civic Center, she was elated. This win gave her the extra confi- dence she needed to compete in the Miss America Pageant. Kellye left for Atlantic City, New Jersey with high hopes and with best wishes from the entire state. When Miss Cash appeared on stage in Atlantic City, she was an instant star. She dazzled the audience as she sang " I ' ll Be Home " in hopes of bringing the title back to Tennessee. Kellye did just that by capturing the title of Miss America, 1986. Kellye is the first Miss Tennessee since 1946 to become Miss America. This ac- complishment was an honor both for Kellye and Tennessee. What a way to make 1986 a real homecoming!

Kris Beasley, was originally the first runner up in the Miss Tennessee Pageant. Kris, a native Memphian, received the title when Miss Cash, the original winner of the Pag- eant, crowned Miss Beasley during a special cere- mony here in Jackson. Miss Beasley competed in the Miss Tennessee Pageant by previously winning the Miss Memphis title. Miss Cash captured the Miss America title which allowed Miss Beasley to become the new Miss Tennessee. Kris was interviewed by the local news shortly after receiving her new title. She was obvi- ously happy for Kellye and elated by the series of events which had taken place. Kris will definitely represent Tennessee with style — Tennessee style! omin ' Home X 1986 was truly Tennessee ' s homecoming! It was a year for re- living old memories and making new ones. Reflected in the Tennes- see homecoming logo, this was a time for returning home to " cele- brate good friends, good times and the good life " ; a time for rediscov- ering roots, looking into the past, and building on it for the future. It was more than a celebration; it was a rediscovery of those values that Americans everywhere recognize as their roots and their heritage. With the help of Pilot Commu- nities all over Tennessee, the state had a complete facelift. The Pilot Community of Milan, Tennessee had " I ' ll be home for Christmas " as its theme, with a big red bow tied around a tree in every yard in town. Everyone from Minnie Pearl to Alex Haley joined the celebrations. Commercials on both television and radio enthusiastically encour- aged people to " come on and en- joy a foot-pattin ' down home good time! " True Tennessee pride was shown throughout the state as Tennessee was given this special year to shine. And shine we did!! Civil War reinactments at Shi- loh, Parker ' s- Crossroads, Pick- wick, and others were visited by people from all over the United States from New York to California. The softer side of the celebra - tion was seen in commercials such as the one with " Amazing Grace " being sung or played in many vari- ous ways. The theme rang out that " no matter how you play it, the message is always the same! " People all over the state, from the great Smokeys to the Mighty Mississippi, from the one -room country churches to the State Cap- itol, Tennesseans are proud to be Americans and are proud of their state! Whether it ' s 1986 or the year 2000, " Come on home to the good life ... " Campus Life f yy Orace Till You Come To The Table ZP . The theatre has undegone a major ten - ovation this year. The new director, Mr. Da vid Burke, toolc over in the fall and has given a whole new look to the facility. The first major thing one notices is the physical rearrangement. The stage is now a permanent structure with the chairs sit- uated around it on platform risers. This arrangement enables the audience to have a wide panoramic view of the actors as they perform. The fall play, " The Glass Menagerie " by Tennessee Williams, con- tained several firsts for the drama depart- ment. It was the first play in the new setting, the first play under the direction of Mr. Burke, and first play with new lighting techniques. The production was a success by all standards. The audience entered the theatre on opening night with music playing in the background. The music set the " stage " for what seemed to be the start of a wonderful evening of entertainment. Suddenly, the lights began to fade and the music filled the air; the show was about to begin. As the music faded, one solitary actor appeared on stage. He begins to relate the background of the play. Suddenly one hears, " Tom! Can ' t say grace til you come to the table! " The mother played very convincingly by San- dra Skinner is ready to start dinner but is waiting on our narrator. The production unfolded into a work of art. Each scene captivated the audience with intensity and professionalism. The character Laura played by Suzetta Tillman made one want to run up and hug her and tell her everything is going to be all right. Tom, played by Kelly CoUenborne, exhibited the true desire to express him- self and leave his familiar world behind. Jim, portrayed by Jim Tartar, put a sparkle of real hope and humor in an otherwise oppressive situation. Jim gave the audi- ence a chance to laugh and Laura a chance to feel like a real person for a fleeting moment. The play came alive and leaped into the hearts of everyone pre- sent. Congratulations to Mr. Burke and the Union Players for a job well done. But remember, we can ' t start or say grace until you come to the table. ilfy student Reception G:;i- ;irru ' -- r.i.J ' makes Union such a success is cbe clo icress of the administration and facul- ty with the students. One way this closeness is expressed is through the President ' s Reception held at the beginning of each fall semester. Turning the everyday cafeteria into a formal setting, the reception provides an opportunity for students to talk with their professors outside of a classroom atmosphere. Union University ' s acting President, Dr. Hyran Barefoot, and his lovely wife greeted students as they entered. They were introduced by Student Government Association President, Drew Gay. :mimmsmammmtiimmimii yi Entertainment T onight The Talent Show was held on October 1-1 and was entitled " Entertainment To- night.

Hollywood was honored at Union Univer- sity. The theme for this year ' s pageant was " Hooray for Hol- lywood " honoring the movie capital ' s 100th anniversary. The contestants brought beauty and grace to the stage as they repre- sented different groups on campus. Each lady was a plea- sure to watch as she performed her talent and displayed her beauty in evening gown. As the girls graced the stage few real- ized the preparation required for the pageant — the long hours of practice, dieting, exercising, and making decisions about hair styles and makeup. Renee Guyton did her part as she received the title of Miss Union University 1987. She per- formed Renee was a very gra - cious winner and unknown to her we noticed as she quietly looked upward and said, " Thank you Lord " , as she re- ceived her crown. Renee will represent Union very well in the coming year. Congratulations to Renee and every one of the ladies in the pageant. Everyone of you are winners.

Let There Be Fraise " Let There Be Praise " was an appropriate title for this year ' s All-Sing competition. It was evi- dent from the beginning that much time and preparation went into the performances. The groups performed a variety of different styles of music to please all kinds of music lovers in the audience. The theme " Let There Be Praise " was characterized in a production number done by a combination of the groups led by director Bill Poyner. Dr. Terry Spohn was Master of Cere- monies and provided " humorous entertain- ment " for the audience throughout the pro- gram. After excellent performances by each gr oup, the judges were faced with the difficult task of choosing a winner When the results were presented, the women of Chi Omega were named grand champions, with Lambda Chi run- ning a close second, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon capturing third place. This night was very suc- cessful and will long be remembered by all who attended. if ' -- i f i ■ The women of Chi Omega won the heart of the judges and their score sheers as they captured the championship trophy. Chi Omega opened their show with a light- hearted rendition of " Friendship. " Their performance ended with their sacred piece. " I ' ve Just Seen Jesus, " which was effectively and movingly portrayed. Lambda Chi Alpha took us on a trip to Broadway with a medley of " Give My Regards to Broadway " and " New York, New York. " They performed " I Am " for their sacred piece. They were awarded second place for their efforts. Awarded the third place trophy were the men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon who opened their performance with a moving medley of " Pierce My Ear " and " People Need The Lord. " Then they took us back to the turn of the century with a barber shop rendition of " Paddlin ' Made- lin ' Home.

" attracted Union students and alumni and caused them to look back on the years that have made Union an outstanding institution. During home- coming week, events took place that provided fun and school spirit. Class play day and a pep rally both excited the students and provided close fellowship among classmates. The night before Homecoming provided the campus residents with the traditional bonfire. Students gathered to show their sup- port for the basketball team and our University. Home- coming Day began with the showing of displays by each class and Greek organiza- tion. Reception rooms for alumni to visit to reacquaint themselves with old friends were available. Between imes, the Homecoming Court was announced. 04. U.,-h, ii )m o DUel ( It 5 Teslerdav Cnce Here When the fired -up Union Bulldogs took the floor, they took control. Mid -way through the first half, the Bulldogs took a command- ing lead. Outstanding per- formances were turned in by David Barham, Willie Hol- land, and Steve Jett as the team rolled to a convincing 93-69 victory over Lane Col- lege. Coach Swope was very pleased that the team played well in front of a large group, comprised of alumni and student body. The Lady Bulldogs who came into the game with an undefeated record, entertained the Lady Pacers of UT Martin. The game was close and intense, but when the final buzzer sounded. Coach Blacksrock and his team had lost their first game. The Lady Bulldogs were led by Charlotte Hart. Jackie Graham, and Shea Piercy. Even though the Lady Bulldogs lost the game, their fans were proud of them and looked forward to a very successful year students Taking Charge Students caking charge is what the Student Activities Cou ncil is really all about. During the past year, SAC again sponsored the Annual Ski Trip. This year the group traveled to breathtak- ing Fallridge, Colorado. While on this trip, the participants enjoyed skiing Vail, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain. SAC also sponsors many events right here on campus. During the Fall semester the SAC gave us the Fashion Show which was co-sponsored by Parks -Belk. Also the popular Truth concert was again a big hit. Another popular event was the Talent Show in which the Union students displayed their various and interesting talents. During the Fall, the SAC sponsored a special Christmas Party for underprivi- leged children. In the Spring semester, the SAC sponsored the Goofy Olympics, Oat- door Carnival and Giant Birthday Party. 5feve Steiner may not be the real Santa Claus, but he did make Christmas a little brighter for these girls from the Carl Perkins Child Abuse Center. Vogue Outlook Jeans have made a big come-back in casual wear in 1986.

The summer of ' 86 was detlnicely Max ' s era, with " C-CC-Cacch che Wave " on everything from billboards to T. V. commercials. Max got his scare in his own one hour movie called Max Headroom! 20 Minutes Into the Future which aired on Cinemax. Immediacely after his movie, he began as hose of a music- video series on Cinemax, in which Max introduced a few videos and inter- viewed several rock stars. During this popular show, Max ' s inevitable rudeness and cockiness came through clear: yawning during one of Sting ' s more ponderous remarks or offering little gifts; usually golf shoes.

The ca- lamity occurred, ironically, in the course of a safety test. At 1:23 a.m. on April 26, the workers began the actual experiment by stopping power to the turbine. The reactor immediately be- gan to overheat dangerously, and since the emergency cooling system had been shut off, there was no back up. Within seconds, there was a tre- mendous power surge that caused two explosions, blew the roof off the reac- tor building and ignited more than 30 fires around the plant. The damaged reactor core and the graphite sur- rounding it began burning at tempera - tures as high as 2.800 F. The Soviet firefighters tried to extinguish the blaze with 5,000 tons of boron, lead and other materials. The fire contin- ued to burn for 12 days. Radiation soared to deadly levels of 2,500 times that of normal safety levels. The Sovi- ets failed to tell the neighboring countries about the accident. Only af- ter furious protests from Sweden did the Soviet Union admit that anything had happened, and then made only limited comments in reply to terse statements. Chernobyl is certain to cast a shadow across the Soviet Union and the whole world for a long time to come. The first major tax overhaul since the adoption of the tax system was passed in 1986. A lot of confusion was created with the new tax law. No one really knows what the full extent of this reform will be, but it is evident that the old ways of figuring tax is obsolete. One heard many things such as, get married, don ' t invest in rental property, invest in the money market and by all means, don ' t take your boss to lunch. All of this was caused by a wave of accountants trying to decipher the new laws. A few points are evident though: sales tax is no longer deductible on cars; the fourteen different tax brackets ranging from 11 to 50 percent have changed to only two brackets of 15 and 28 percent; and, personal exemptions are higher, but the exemptions are harder to achieve. Singles, may find higher taxes while married couples find reduced taxes. Whatever the ultimate outcome, we, the people, are still taxed and taxes will still be an American tradition. On January 28, 1986, the nation was held in silence as we watched the sudden and tragic destruction of seven courageous astronauts on board the Challenger. Only seventy-three sec- onds after the shuttle lifted off, it exploded with a burst of fire and bellowing smoke. It was several moments before spectators and NASA officials realized what happened, but when they did, a feeling of disbelief emerged. What had become a routine event suddenly turned into a nightmare. This would have been the twenty - fifth space shuttle mission and the first of fif- teen nights scheduled for 1986. The remaining fourteen flights were immediately cancelled. What made their mission unique from the oth- ers was that, for the first time, a civilian was to be sent into space. This honor would go to Christa McAuliffe, a teacher who was to give two fifteen minute classes to millions of school children while on the shuttle. Gennadiy Zakharov, a Soviet U.N. employee was arrested on a subway platform in New York City and charged with spying. A week later, American journalist Nicholas S. Daniloff was arrested on the streets of Moscow and accused of spying on the Soviet Union. Daniloff spent 13 days in a Soviet prison before being released to the U.S. embassy and before being allowed to return home to the U.S. Zakharov, too. was released to the Soviet embassy and allowed to return to his home nation. Although Moscow claimed Daniloff was held on spy charges, the White House said he was held hostage, plain and simple. Both men were released within weeks and the entire affair set the stage for a superpower summit meeting in Iceland. On a beautiful July day, the stage was set; thousands of people lined the streets of London; hotse drawn carriages arrived on cue; the royal family arrived at Westminister Abbey. What was iti ' Another Royal Wedding, of course! This time Prince Andrew, younger brother of Charles, and Sarah Ferguson — a commoner of all things — were saying those sacred vows. It seems hard to believe that five years ago. Prince Charles took Lady Diana Spencer as his wife in a fairy tale wedding with all the pomp and pageantry that was deserving of a future king. However, this wedding was different. There were no foreign heads of state present; no national holiday declared. Only friends and family filled the abbey to witness this perfect match become husband and wife. For all the splendor of the pageantry, the ceremony never lost a sense of down-home majesty, best caught perhaps by the four tiny bridesmaids dressed like floral sylphs and the four small pages clad in naval costumes. As hundreds of thousands of onlookers watched, the two said, " I will " , and left the abbey not as prince and commoner, but as the Duke and Duchess of York. The honeymoon consisted of a five day cruise through the Azores, including an overnight stay near the island of Pico. During the weeks between March 24 and April 21 of 1986, anxiety, satisfaction, and fear filled the minds of most Americans as the U.S. retaliated against terror- ism. The U.S. Sixth Fleet crossed Muammar Gaddafi ' s " Line of Death " and fired upon missile sites at Misurata, Sun, and Benghazi. For too long U.S. citizens had been targeted for terrorists attacks. Gaddafi, " the mad dog of the Middle East " , had been accused of financially supporting world-wide terrorism. The Reagan Administra- tion decided it was time to fight back. The carriers, America and CoraJ Sea, 14 escort Warships, and 2 other support vessels sailed into the Gulf of Sidra to carry out the orders of attack from the Com- mander- in - Chief It took a severe drought to erase that legendary " Mason-Dixon Line " . The drought spread through the Southeast dur- ing 1986. It was the worst dry spell on U.S. record. At the peak of the drought, crops wilted in the sun from southern Pennsylvania all the way into northern Florida. Even after some rain, many farmers in the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia were on the brink of ruin. Many chose to sell out while still on top, but others clung to the fight against the heat. In many areas the drought was so bad that farmers were unable to find hay for less than $3 a bale to keep their dairy cows from starvation. The farmers in the far north heard of these trials and banded together to help. The farmers from the Dakota ' s, Washington, Wyoming, and other states sent train loads of hay to their fellow farmers in the South.

You hear someone yell " Hold right! " ; you cum around and see mil- lions of people hand in hand forming a snake dance from coast to coast. Sound impossible? It ' s not; it actually happened in May in the form of Hands Across America. With a show of hands, America took a stand for the hungry and homeless right here at home. This chain, however, was not made of hands only, but of large hearts displaying love and concern. The American people came through to make Hands Across America a great success! Patrick Henry Sherrill had been a part-time letter carrier in Edmond, Oklahoma for 16 months when he walked into the post office last Au- gust, never to walk out again. After being reprimanded by two supervisors the day before, he returned the next day at 7 a.m. dressed in his blue uni- form carrying three pistols and am- munition in a mailbag. Without a word, he gunned down his co-work- ers, killing 14 and wounding 6 before taking his own life. SheriU, 44, was described as a loner. He was unmar- ried and apparently had no close friends. Having been an ex-marine and expert marksman, he served in the national guard as a handgun instruc- tor. It was the third worst mass mur- der in the U.S. history. She had the biggest birthday ever! and why not? She certainly derserved it! The statue ot Liberty has stood in the New York Harbor as the symbol of freedom in America for 100 years! Ed Koch, Mayor of New York City, an- nounced, " I ' ve invited the whole world! " As many as 6 million people t ook him up on the invitation to help " The Lady " celebrate. On July 3rd, the Lady was unveiled and all decked out with a new torch which was lit by President Reagan. Some 20,000 boats of every conceivable shape and size turned out in the harbor On July 4th, the largest fireworks display in United States history was set off around the Lady. The four day birthday bash was a celebration of the American spirit of freedom! Happy First 100 Lady, and may you have hundreds more to come!! President Reagan and Soviet leader Mik- hail Gorbachev met in Reykjavik, Iceland for a two -day summit in October to discuss arms control Their meeting was historic by any measure — it was the first summit be- tween the two superpowers in more than six years. The private conversations between the two leaders were sometimes friendly, some- times brutally direct. Six private meetings lasted five hours in all, only to reach an impasse on testing of the U.S. Star Wars weaponry. In American opinion, Ronald Reagan emerged the victor. Most people blamed Gorbachev for the failure to reach an agreement and Reagan found support for rejecting the Soviet proposals. The two men did agree to push for more concrete steps to reduce the risks of an accidental nuclear war. The hope is that one day an agreement be- tween our two countries for peace will be a reality. f Crimes statistics have begun rising again in our cities, and drugs are implicated in more than half of them. Illegal drug trafficking is growing at a vet} ' rapid rate. Street names include grass, snow, speed, horse, angel dust, and other inno- cent sounding names. Unfortunately, these in- nocent names cause tragic consequences. The government estimates a $110 billion -a -year drug habit in the U.S. One of the newest, purest, and most addictive drugs on the market is a deadly distillate of cocaine. Cocaine has four million to five million regular customers. Crack, a smokable form of cocaine that can be man- factured in the kitchen, has become America ' s fastest -growing drug epidemic and potentially its most serious. Crack addiction has already reached crisis proportions. Crack is cheap, plen- tiful, and intensely addictive. Its users come from all social strata and walks of life, and its use is spreading nationwide. Atccr JO years of ruling without serious chul- lenge. Phillipine president Ferdinand E. Marcos was forced from office amid charges of corrup- tion and scandal The new president, Corazon Aquino, was faced with political and economic turmoil. Immediately after the election, Marcos fled the country with his wife, former first lady Imelda. Aquino, — widow of slain opposition leader Benigno " Ninoy " Aquino Jr. and a career housewife arid mother of five — stepped into the vacated seat. During the troubled election, Aquino urged her loyal followers to " take to the streets " to demand justice. Amid shouts of " Cory! Cory! " , Aquino, dressed in yellow, joined the demonstrations. As President, Corazon Aquino received standing ovations in the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives and was elected Time Magazine ' s " Man of the Year " . The drug crisis has really been a top issue in 1986. Many rallys, commercials and campaigns have shouted the motto: " Just Say No! " New ways of apprehend- ing drug dealers and abusers have gone into effect; but none have been as effec- tive as the method used by the 13 -year- old from Orange County, California. De- anna Young returned home from an anti- drug lecture, collected her evidence in a trashbag and took it to the police. Evi- dence against whom. ' ' Her parents! Her mother was arrested at the police station and her father, at home as he returned from work. Deanna had tried many less drastic ways to get her parents to give up drugs. Her last effort was called " A hero- ic and genuine act of love. " To play basketball for the World Champion Boston Celtics is a dream that almost all young- sters would like to realize. University of Mary- land stand-out, Len Bias, was on the verge of making his dream become reality when cocaine took his young life. Bias, an All- American, died of cocaine intoxication in his dormitory room. Less than 48 hours earlier. Bias had been drafted by the Boston Celtics. In his celebration of a dream come true, Buis used cocaine for proba- bly the first time, but definitely for the last. The death of Len Bias at the age of 22 shook the nation. The reality of the dangers of drugs that for so long had been incomprehensible sudden - ly were thrust into the unhindered view of ev- eryone. Would America be as aware of the consequences of drugs if Bias would have " just said no " . ' Would we be seeing " Nocaine " com- mercials on television if Bias were living out an illustrious career in the NBA. ' Len Bias is mak- ing it possible for many young people to have a drug free life through his death. After resting on the ocean floor for nearly three-quarters of a century, a great ship seemed to come to life again. Nobody had seen the great " unsinkable " Titanic since it struck an iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage in April 1912, carrying more than 1,500 of the 2,000 passengers to their deaths 74 years ago. Marine Geologist Rob - ert Ballard led teams from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in what has become the most celebrated feat of underwater exploration — the discovery of the Titanic wreckage. With the aid of underwater submersi- bles nicknamed " Alvin " and " J.J. " , startling new information was re- vealed. They failed to find the 300 ft. gash that, according to legend, was torn in the Titanic ' s hull when the ship plowed into the iceberg. Evidence also revealed that the ship broke apart, not as it hit bottom, but as it sank: the stern which settled almost 1,800 ft. from the bow, had swiveled 18(f on its way down. During the 12 day explora - tion " There was not a square inch of the Titanic that has not been photo- graphed in beautiful detail " stated 44 year old Ballard. Between the two sec- tions of the ship, the Woods Hole Scientists found a large debris field littered with priceless artifacts that in- cluded cannonballs, scattered pottery, a patent-leather shoe, copper kettle, silver bars and three of the ship ' s safes. Empty Mailbox Syndrome y Are you one of [he many students who checks his mailbox everyday only to find that it is empty? If you are. you ' re a victim of the " Empty Mailbox Syn- drome " . Everyday students journey to their mailboxes hop- ing that something will be there. Like children at Christmas, they anticipate finding a letter or note, only to find airmail (an empty box). So many students check their box three or four times a day knowing that the only thing that might be in it is junkmail that hits the trash can about as fast as it comes out of the box. What cure is there for this syndrome. Most stu- dents find the solution sometime during their junior year. Four steps to the solution are: 1. check your mailbox once a day; 2. Don ' t expect anything in it when you get there; 3. Make sure it is real mail when there is something in the box before celebrating; And 4. See a psychiatrist if the first three steps don ' t work. See Ya LD.? TKeNature I of the Child What is the most important item in the life of a Union student ■ ' It is the student ID., of course! Without this valuable piece of plastic, a student can ' t eat, check out recreation equipment, or even get in the dorms after midnight. At Union, a student is totally lost without an official ID. More important than the correct uses of this treasured article are the handy things it can do around campus. It is great to have when you f ind yourself in one of those rare boring classes and need a straight edge to complete your masterful artwork on the desktop. Then when class is over, stick your I.D. in you book so you will be ready for tomorrow ' s class. What do you do when your roommate is gone for the weekend and you desperately need something from his room, like money? The security of the dormitory doors is so remark- able that the only thing that can possibly get you in is your I.D. What about the times when you find the windshield of you car covered with ice, and you just couldn ' t beg together that 99i for a handy -dandy ice scraper, what do you do.- ' Just pull out that trusty I.D. and go to work. Some of the best portraits ever made are those on your I.D. You always seem to make that face that looks like you Ve been on a four day drunk when it is I.D. time. Some people collect stamps, some collect coins, but those of us who discover that we are on Union ' s seven year plan collect I.D.s. Hey, you can scrape gum from your shoe, cut butter, and even pick your teeth with your ID. So what do you do with it when you graduate ... save it! Twenty years from now pull it oat, laugh at your picture, and reminisce about those glorious college days. I Union University JdCkson. Tennessee JEROME KAGAN Prospective students for Union usually are given a rather extensive tour of the campus; and yet, n wa - jor attraction is often missed unless the campus is toured during or shortly after a good rain. Between the housing complex and the cafe- teria, at the east end of the side- walk is what, at one time, was a small puddle. Since that time, it has grown into a larger puddle; then a pond; and in its most recent devel- opment, it has become Union Res- ervoir (better known as Lake El- liot). The students are very exicted about its growth. It is true, at one time, that the student senate pushed heavily to have it removed, but this request was soon with- drawn because the faculty and ad- ministration are so fond of it. They must be. Nothing has ever been done about it. Often, during a rain, maintenance crews have been seen in the middle of the mud and wa- ter, attempting to allow the water to drain, but students keep inter- rupting their work, pleading with them not to destroy the only natu - ral pond left on the new campus. The students then raise their pants legs (or whatever they have on at the time) and wade through the almost ankle -deep water. It is truly an asset to Union ' s campus to have such a facility as Lake Elliott. Rumor has it that the reservoir wil be stocked with cat- fish, bream, and crappie by mid- summer. We can only look for- ward to the excellent fishing that will be enjoyed by all. This attrac- tion will surely lure more students Union ' s way! Many students feel that such a lake should be dug at every entrance and exit of the school so that students must wade through the water. After all, forced participation in activities is Union ' s way of getting people involved. It is almost certain that now, with this new facility, the book- store will run a big sale on all their outdoor swimwear and lower its markup to only 500 9n for this sale only! Entertainment sri Oprah Winfrey was born ar home in Kosci- usko, Mississippi, and she has become the hot ■ test thing in daytime talk-shows. " TV ' s Queen of talk " is described as " instinct barely slowed by preparation " . She is better at orchestration than interviewing; better at playing her guests against each other and the audience than at probing one -on -one. She has a mind as quick as any in television. In 1986. since the National syndication of her talk show, Winfrey has be- come the most endearing voice on television. Her show has become so popular that Phil Donahue must be wondering where he went wrong! Have you ever heard of a zerbert? If vou have, then you are probably a fan of The Cosby Show, the number one show for the last two years. The show ' s success has consequently brought back the pop- ularity of the family oriented situation - comedies such as Family Ties, Growing Pains, and Valarie. With Bill Cosby, a talented cast, excellent scripts, and be- lievable plots, you have little trouble see- ing why The Cosby Show is a smash hit. The major reason for the show ' s success however, is Bill Cosby himself He has an uncanny ability, through his intuition about human nature, to make us laugh at ourselves. In almost every episode, the show has something that you can relate to Your own family experiences that you can remember and wonder how you ever lived though it. The show centers around the Huxtable family, which includes the father (a gyne- cologist), a mother (a lawyer), and their five children. The show may be consid- ered a type of autobiography on Cosby ' s life, considering he has five children in his real family. He says he even gets some of the shows material from his everyday family life. Maybe that is why the show is so captivating and hits so close to home. Commg on after the likes o The Cosby Show couldn ' t hurt any show, but Family Ties doesn ' t leave any doubt that it ' s a hit on its own. This situation-comedy brings home some of the every- day realities of family life in a humorous and warm way. The show ' s star, Michael J. Fox, has become a household name while starring in two hit movies. His dry sense of humor and intellectual follies bring tons of laughs. Meredith Baxter Birney and Michael Gross portray the two parents who grew up as student protestors and demonstrators during the sixties. Their background adds a special twist to this eighties setting. These elements, along with a talented cast, make Family Ties a smash hit for the whole family. What television show has given us a hit sound- track album and has single-handedly spawned a whole new fashion trend. ' If you answered Miami Vice, you would be right. Miami Vice, starring Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas, has scored big with television audiences with a combi- nation of tough guy force and flashy smooth cool This show is obviously not your average cop show as it gives us the distinctive sights and sounds of the Miami beach and night life. Its two stars both skyrocketed to new stardom while launching suc- cessful singing careers. ' V ' n Do Bears bear. ' Do Bees bee? Does butter fly? Does a picket fence? Great googly moogly! If these phrases sound familiar, then you ha ve been watching the hit television show Moonlighting starring Sybil Shephard and Bruce Willis. This situation -comedy has vaulted to the top of the Neilson ratings with a combination of sassy wit and fast-paced action. While making its two stars household names. Moonlighting recasts the old war of the sexes into the snappiest, hottest comedy on the tube. This summer, the series swept up a record 16 Emmy nominations, more than any other show, including The Cosby Show. She has bit it big in two movies that areas different as day and night. One is a touching stot} ' about n young woman who is victimized by male brutality und cventu- ally wins by finding herself in The Color Purple. The other is a comedy about a woman who worlcs in a bank and is contacted on her computer by a man in Europe who needs her help in Jumping Jack Flash. We are obviously talking about Whoopi Goldberg. No other actress has become so popular as quicidy while display- ing a talented array of styles. A 33 year-old New York native. Whoopi is a rising star on the entertainment horizon. She got her start in a one woman Broadway show where she was discovered by Steven Spielberg and then made her successful transition to movies. Whoopi Goldberg obviously has overwhelming talent which gives audiences a limitless supply of entertainment. Paul Hogan ' s " Crocodile Dundee " grabbed $8 million in it ' s First U.S. weekend. Mick " Crocodile " Dundee is a larger-than- life hero who, as legend has it, crawled miles thru the Australian outback to safety after being attacked by a crocodile. A female American reporter, hot for a story, follows htm through the rugged country and finds more than she bargained for. In tutn. Mick goes to explore her jungle — New York City. His run-in with pimps, hookers, and street punks turn out to be a bigger adven- ture than he expected, also. They were once called " T. V. ' s answer to the Beatles " , over 20 years ago. Today they are back in full swing! " Hey! Hey! We ' re the monkeys! " David Jon es, Peter Tork, and Mickey Dolenz. In 1986. the Monkees hit a 100-city comeback tour, playing their famil- iar tunes and performing their antique rou - tines to standing room only concert halls and screaming fans. 22 straight hours of the 1966-68 " Monkee ' s Show " were aired on MTV. They are back and going strong! Star Trek V — The Voyage Home. In the latest installment ofTV -turned -mov- ie series, the whole Enterprise gang, led by Admiral James Kirk ( Willi a m Shatner), journeyed back in time 300 years to Star fleet ' s tirst home base, San Francisco, to save the planet earth from an Alien life form that had its beginnings in the 20th centurv. Leonard Nimoy, who starred in the movie as the Volcan- Spock. directed Star Trek IV as he did the third movie. The newest Film is said to be the closest so far in form and feeling to the original TV show. Bruce Springsteen once again moved to the top of the recording industry with his album " Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Live 1975-83 " The album was actually 5 LP ' s with 40 songs and over 3 hours of music. It entered the charts by debuting in the No. 1 spot and going triple platinum on the very First day of release. The album was comprised of music from live concerts from the past 10 years. Once again " The Boss " has proved his immense popularity across the nation. Top Gun is a young man ' s fantasy about jet fighter pilots, a beautiful blond flying instructor, and MiG ' s zapped at high alti- tudes. The hero is Maverick (Tom Cruise). The orphaned son of a disgraced Fighter pilot, he ' s got a chip on his shoulder the size of a 747. He ' s a rebel who won ' t do thing s by the book. But he has more instinctive genius for Fying than anyone else in the U.S. Navy. 1 " You Give Good Love " 1 " Saving All My Love For You " 1 " How Will I Know " 1 " Greatest Love of AH " Whitney Houston . . . They say it ' s all in the genes. Her mother is gospel legend Cissy Houston; her cousin is Dionne Warwick, but the forrner model, 23, is doing it her way. Her debut album, with its sultry hit songs, has outsold any record by Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, or Dionne. Whitney, you give good music! Although Madonna has never been accused of having morality as one of her strong points, her hit single " Papa don ' t preach " has made her extremely popular with the right-to-life organizations. The single rose to No. 1 on the charts and the album became a platinum success. Set to a snappy dance beat, the tune relates the plight of a young unmarried woman who turns to her father for love, support, and advice when she decides to go ahead and have her baby in spite of the consequences. The song points out the fact that somebody needs to help troubled girls with their painful decision to give life. Pro-choice forces criticized the song as " a unrealistic view of life. " The Bangles are an all-girl band who hit the charts big this past year. All four girls are from Los Angeles, California, and are in their mid-20 ' s. The group was started by lead guitarist Vicki Peterson and her sister Debbi Peterson who plays the drums. Susannan Hoffs hooked up with the band after an- swering a classified ad by the Pe- tersons. Hoffs is lead vocalist and plays the guitar. After Michail Steele replaced the original bass player, the Bangles released their first big hit. Their next two songs have also been hits. If She Knew What She Wants hit high on the charts and Walk Like an Egyptian made it to number one.

They provide a lot of entertainment and share the " Good News " through the medium of make- believe characters. The puppets break barriers between people that normally cannot be crossed. They also are able to express love in a unique way to those who will take a moment to lis- ten. Adults, as well as children, enjoy the performances which can be flashy and bold and at the same time carry a very simple, yet important message. Let them share the " Son " with you. At the very heart of life are two basic questions " Who am I. " and " What shall I do. ' ' " The degree to which a person is able to find satisfactory answers largely determines whether or not existence transcends its apparent absorbities and takes on the quality of a full and meaningful life. BSU aids in finding the answer to these questions by directing the student to his creator. Only by knowing Jesus Christ will a student begin to know himself BSU is about people and their relationship to Jesus. " Knowing Him and making Him known " is the BSU motto and we do this by providing two meetings a week. We have guest speakers, Bible studies, talent shows, and creative worship. The BSU has an executive committee which is composed of the BSU director, Pres., Vice- Pres., and Secretary. The Executive Committee is the administrative part of the BSU. They are to lead by example and serve with love and commitment. Impact One of our funniest experi- ences would ha ve to be the Asso - dated Acteen Convention. When we were asked to do this, we had the idea that we would be on a big stage in front of hundreds of screaming teen-age girls. When we got there, were we ever sur- prised! There were only about ten girls there. Even though the crowd was small, we had a won- derful time. The Title Impact reflects the purpose of their existence; the members hope to have an impact on those with which they share. Through their work they strive to express the need for Christ. A personal story about one of the many light-hearted moments shows a typical impact mishap. Backyard Bible Club The Backyard Bible Club consists of 15-20 dedicated students who go out every sunny at 3:00p.m. to an under priviledged housing com- munity to share Christ. Kids from every age meet at this time for an hour or two of fun. fellowship and Christian training. Many of these children have never heard of Jesus or the gospel; therefore, it ' s a challenge and a great responsi- bility to teach them. Many of these kids are poor and abused and need love . . . Love that Union students can give through Christ. Church Related Vocations CRV — Church Related Vocations is a program set up by the religious Affairs Office. CR V gives scholarships money and ptactical training to any student going into a Church related field. The CR V students meet once a month in a class which is designed for their field of ministry: ie.. Pastor. Missionary, Music Minister, Social Ministry, Ministry of Education. First row: Michele Chambers, Tammy Crenshaw, Tern ' Powers; Second row: Tina Long. Carrie Rostollan, Sharon Archer, Brenda Reed, Beth McIIwain. Paula Burton; Third row: Monica Powers.

Ministerial Association The Ministerial Associa- tion is a group composed of young men who strive to ex- pand their education through involvement with men in the ministry of Chris- tian service. They meet on a monthly basis to listen to different topics and discuss their views on the matters. The program pulls together the seasoned mentors and the young men in a con- structive atmosphere. The fellowship between the stu- dents and teachers is an en- riching experience — one that develops into fulfilling friendships. These friend- ships become a valuable commodity throughout their careers in the ministry. Baptist Young Women The Baptist Young Women is an auxiliary branch of the Tennes- see Women ' s Missionary Union. The BYW are responsible for training their members in an awareness of missions, both for- eign and home. BYW holds as a major importance the prayful sup- port of foreign missionaries. Go forth therefore and make all nations my disciples; baptize men everywhere in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And be assured. I am with you always, to the end of time. (Mat- thew 28: 19-20) Friendships are scarred quickly at Union. These friend- ships become very important to new freshmen. There is always someone to back you up. to support you and to guide you when help is needed. Even for those exciting and difficult times, it ' s nice to know that someone is there. No matter how big or small you are, a helping hand is always available. Union provides this unique atmosphere for its stu- dents, and allows them to grow in a supportive structure.

The Student Senate is comprised of representa- tives from some 40 organizations on campus. It is called into session on alternating Wednesday nights. It IS ruled by parliamentary procedure as outlined in Robert ' s Rules of Order. Robbie Graves. SGA Vice President, is presiding officer. The Student Senate is challenged with the responsibility of being the orga- nizational voice of the student body to the faculty and administration. If changes are needed in any aspect of the campus program, the Senate writes and votes on bills on the matter. Bills voted in are then channelled to the proper administrators for further action. This year ' s Senate has a different personality from chose in the past. It is the goal of this Senate to delegate responsibility to a larger number ot people, thereby gaining a broader opinion from the student body. The hope of the Senate is to make the stu - dent ' s stay at Union as pleasurable as possible. Good participation and attendance has abounded this year. Because meetings only last about 20 min- utes wouldn ' t have a bearing on that, would it.

The SGA involves all organizations on campus through ou r Senate, which meets twice a month. The President ' s duties involve appointing committees, presiding over class meetings, and making personal appearances.

Torch The Torch is the only publi- cation which promotes student development in the arts. It is published annually only in the second semester and consists of poems, short stories, photo- graphs, paintings, original mu- sic and similar avenues of ex- pression in a 28 page booklet. The Torch committee is com- posed of 6 students from vari- ous disciplines and at various levels of college completion. This committee determines the content, layout, color size, and distribution ot works presented. The Torch originally began under the guidance of the Hon- ors Program, but since that time it has evolved into a self-sus- taining pubhcation under a fac- ulty sponsorship. At the present time only those members of the student committee remain. Three others will be added by February, 1987. Sigma Tau Delta According to Anna Hemp- stead Branch, " God wove a web of loveliness of clouds and stars and birds, but made not anything at all so beautiful as words. " This quote accurately states the aim and purpose ot Union ' s national English honor society. Sigma Tau Delta. Sigma Tau Delta promotes the mastery ot written expres- sion through encouraging cre- ativity and variety. All English majors, minors, and composite English Journalism majors are welcome. If you ' re interested in exquisite English expression, grab your pencil and paper, and " Get ready, i;et set. GO! " From a stringent discussion ot a series of Aristotle ' s works to building pyramids on the well-kept lawn of Chicago ' s his- toric Water Tower, the Honors Student Association members are involved in a wide variety of activities. HSA is com- posed ol students who have a genuine desire to learn and are interested in ex- panding their horizons. This goal ot ex- pansion is accomplished not only through stimulating class topics such as rock music and international controver- sies of the Southern Baptist Convention, but also through informal discussions stemming from a fast-paced game of " Scruples. " The Honors summer retreat was the beginning of the Honors experience for a large group of freshmen. At this retreat, new students met upperclassmen and faculty members who would later be- come dear friends and mentors. The mind -stretching study of Aristotle ' s Ni- comachean Ethics was the initial subject discussed in the Introduction Honors class. However, the highlight of the fall se- mester was the weekend trip to Chicago. One student might have enjoyed the Ba- hai House of Worship or the Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, while another might have enjoyed the Art Institute of Chica- go. Even though each member might have preferred a different aspect of the trip, he now shares a sense of unity that reaches beyond the class room.

Each group offers its own spe- cial qualities that add a little " spice " to student life at the univeristy. Greek life begins at Union, as It does at other colleges, with Rush Week. Appropriately named, Rush Week calls for meeting a lot of new faces and making a lot of decisions. Rush seems to be an impossible task, but somehow many freshman and transfers soon find a group to call brothers or sisters. MmM Vj . J OL ' £ cttC. Frdternities and sororities become a valuable part of many students ' lives at Union. Not only do they provide good friends for the future, but they also provide wonderful memories ot the past. Serenading, candle-lights, all-sing, initiation rites, pinnings, and the bond achieved between big and little brothers and big and little sisters are all wonderful parrs of the total sum that we know as fraternities and sororities. 2 A E First Row: Karen Duke.

First, it can be defined as believing the gtoup can do no wrong and individual behavior will not reflect on the group as a whole Secondly, pride can be looked on as a sense of one ' s own dignity and self-worth, a delight in the satisfaction in one ' s own achievements and the achievements of othets. Ptide abounds in the Tennessee ETA chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon through our accomplishments, our beliefs, and our oursranding heritage. Pride in our accomplishmenrs. In the past few years, Tennessee ETA has had the largest number of new pledges including a great many upperclassmen. Along with our large and successful group of pledges, Tennessee ETA is proud of being intiimural champions for the past three years. Intellectual achievement also adds to our list of accomplishments by being the fraternity with rhe highest CPA for the past several years. PRIDE in our beliefs. Tennessee ETA is definitely proud, of our pledge system. Our period of pledging is a time for our pledges to learn of Tennessee ETA ' s heritage and history, in conjunction with learning our mosr important belief " The True Gentleman. " PRIDE in our outstanding heritage. Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded on March 9, 18}6 at the University of Alabama. Our Tennessee ETA chaprer at Union was founded the following year on July 4, 1857 — making it the fifth chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Our colors are royal purple and old gold. The official flower is the purple violet, and the lion is our mascot. We also take PRIDE in our Little Sisters of Minerva.

If one ventures near the Zeta lodge during the first week in September, he is likely to hear feminine voices singing these words: " We call it fun but you might call ic madness . . . Stay here with us and you 11 forget your sadness. " The first week in September is rush week, and " MADNESS " has been a ZTA classic for many years. The Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity is the third largest sorority in the Panhellenic conference presently. A rich heritage stands behind Zeta Tau Alpha. The sisterhood was organized on Oaober 13. 1898 at Longwood College in Farmville. Virginia and has worked toward the goal of creating a more noble womanhood for almost a centur}: Zetas — as members of ZTA fraternity are commonly called — come in many different forms. Some sisters are varsity athletes while others are scholars Some are beauty queens while some are the girls next door. Despite their differences, they are bound together through their Zeta spirit. Zeta spirit has been especially evident in 1986-87. Rush week resulted in 45 new pledges, enabling the Zetas to reach quota. The Zetas. of course, believe that parries are an important pan of capturing college life. Banquet was held aboard the " Memphis Queen III. " making it excitable and enjoyable for all. For one date parry in the spring, each sister is set up with a blind dare by her little sister — fittingly called " Sprins Madness. " Zeta spirit is evident in intramural aaivities; they have been at the top for the past five years. " With a gold pin and pearls we are true-hearted girls and when we are gone, you will remember our song. " As the classic Zeta tune " Madness " ends, so will college days But Zeta goals and Zeta memories will last a lifetime in the heart of ever}- ZTA.

" The friendships you make and the memories of the fellowship you share are eternal. The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was founded on September 11. lS6i and was the first fraternity founded after our nation s Civil War Seeking to bind men together in Christian brotherhood. Alpha Tau Omega chartered Union s Beta Tau Chapter on February 28. 1894. Within ATO. you find opportunities for self-expression, leadership, life-long brotherhood and genuine recognition of your accomplishments. Beta Tau Chapter ar Union excels both nationally and locally Having been recognized for work wichin the communit}- and for charities, the Beta Taus received the Community Awareness Award from their National Fraternity. Also, for outstanding brotherhood and working togerher as a fraternity, the Beta Tau Chapter was awarded runner-up to the True Merir Award which is the highest possible honor Alpha Tau Omega awards to its chapters. Inttamural sports serve as an important outlet from the pressures of college life and ATO brothers are especially active in the intramural ptogram at Union. At Campus Day Creek Olympics. ATO ' s captured the Intramural Football Championship and were awarded First Place for their Homecoming display Taking pride in intramural activities — using them as a tool for the growth and development — produces life-long lasting friendships.

In a symphony, when you bring all the instruments together, the music it makes is a complex and harmonious melody that is beautiful music to its listeners. In Chi Omega, the symphony is a combination of " notes " that produce an everlasting sisterhood. Since 1895, the oldest national sorority has had a commitment to excellence for Greek women attending college. That has been the goal of the Upsilon Chapter of Chi Omega, since its establishment on Union ' s campus in 1924. Meeting their founders ' challenge of excellence through producing campus leaders among its members has been Chi Omega ' s objective from the very beginning. This is evident through Upsilon ' s winning of the scholarship trophy for the past 39 years. Each sister in the sorority — whether she is a pledge or an active — plays an equally important part in the challenge for excellence, forming new friendships that will last a hfetime. Sisterhood in Chi Omega puts the polish on the instruments so that all " notes " project a true -harmonious melody.

As the newest arrival. Lambda Chi Alpha brought with It new Ideas to the standard or stereotyped fraternity system. One of these Ideas is the concept of Associate Membership which replaces the old pledgeship system. It also brought with it the Idea that brotherhood is achieved not only through social activities but through the blending of individual personalities and service to the community and campus Lambda Chi Alpha bi-annually sponsors the largest collegiate blood drive in West Tennessee outside the Memphis area, lambda Chi also sponsors an annual faculty kidnap for World Hunger, a faculty reception, a sorority receprion, and a community food drive for needy families in the Jackson area. Lambda Chi Alpha also participates in campus events such as campus All-Sing in which they won second place with their performances of " I Am " and " New York, New York. " Lambda Chi Alpha s colors are purple, green, and gold. Their flower is the white rose and their mascot is the mallard duck. The fraternity carries an open motto of " Ever} ' man a man " which expresses their concern over each individual person and his contributions to society. Lambda Chi Alpha was founded in 1909 at Boston University Lambda Chi Alpha is the nation s third largest fraternity In number of members and in number of active chapters. Greek Councils Nancy Ackeison, Social; Rhonda Coleman, Secretary; Jane Ann Sage, Presidem; Deanna Morris, Vice-Pres.; Norma Scon, Treasurer; Sandra Skinner. Panhellenic Council The Panhellenic Council, a body of delegates representing both sororities on Union ' s campus, is an extension of the National Panhellenic Conference. The NPC provides a framework for all college Panhellenics, while each college Panhel- lenic works out the details of its own operation. Dr. Maggie Nell Brewer, the Panhellenic advisor, sees that Panhellenic policies are enforced, and is always will- ing to assist when needed. The Panhellenic Council establishes Rush rules, sees that they are implement- ed, and sets quota for the number of rushees allowed by each sorority. In con- junction with this, the Panhellenic Coun- cil hosts the first party of Rush, providing information to the rushees. Working together for the welfare of the Greek system and to unify all in- volved in Panhellenic ' s main objective. Interfraternity Council The Interfraternity Council is a group comprised of members from the three fraternities on Union ' s campus. Three delegates from each group comprised of the presidents and two other members make up the council. The council is re- sponsible for setting the regulations and rules for the rush weeks which take place at the beginning of each fall and spring semester. The council also acts as a gov- erning body in matters involving two or more fraternities. The gtoup works in conjunction with the school to see that any interfraternal problems are dealt with in the correct manner. This council is an outlet for the differ- ent groups to communicate important in - formation to each other in an efficient and orderly fashion, thereby allowing the fraternities to co-exist in a relatively calm atmosphere.

With her endless support for her brothers and grace with which she represents her fraternity, a sweetheart embodies the true ideas, beliefs and spirit of her brothers. To be chosen as sweetheart is the highest honor that is presented to a little sister. Women In Red Mid-afternoon in early September; a light breeze rustles through the autumn colored trees, and the sound of movement comes from Fred Delay Gymnasium. Squeaks of sneakers, the sound of a bouncing ball, and the rattle of a am. common sounds coming from a gym, but in September? Football season is just getting started! Inside are a dozen or so young women and their coach, preparing for the upcoming season, still two months away. A stuffy gym. undesirable wind sprints, drill after drill, sweat: these all parts ot maintaining a tradition. The women ' s basketball program at Union has es- tablished itself as a powerhouse in the NAIA, and it takes a courageous breed to carry on the tradition. The call goes out, " Who wants to accept the challem e. ' " Enter the " Women in Red " ... . . . Only those who are serious about bas- ketball can become part of the select few. How- ever, being a part of one of the best programs in the country is not all glory. Many trials accom ■ pany the road to success. A certain amount of pressure is felt in every game to keep that win - ning edge. Also, if you have ever witnessed a David Blackstock practice, you would realize what true tribulation is. Coach Blackstock de- mands 110 percent, and gets it! It has paid off, though. The Lady Bulldogs were the leading scoring team in the nation this season. In early January they climbed as high . . . ... 35 che third in the polls, and in mid -February chey were still holding onto fourth. At one point in the season, the Lady Bulldogs ranked fifth in shooting percent- age. At center is two-time All-Dis- trict player, Jackie Graham. Jackie holds the Union single-season field goal accuracy record (.595), and ranked eleventh nationally in field goal percentage in 1986. She capped this season by surpassing 1500 career pts. In January, Jackie was named the NAIA Player of the Week. Charlotee Hart, two-time NAIA Ail-American and Confer- ence MVP, plays forward.

High fives, faces of disbelief and sheer amazement are recognizable all through the crowd as Jett finishes another " nasty " slam. Confidence stems from all sections of the gym as David Barham steps up to the free throw line. Like a doctor at work, David goes through his pre -shot rhythm; rhythm that consists of spinning the ball in the palms of his hands, allowing the ball to rest on his right thigh as he takes a couple of deep breaths, and a precise shot that nearly always finds the bottom of the net. Chants of " Iceman " fill the air after another successful trip to the line for David Barham. If anyone should be happy with the addition of the three point shot . . . Dj vid Barham goes to the goal Lane College. Dr. Naismith would not even be able to recognize this grand sport he originat- ed. Now -a -days, it has become common for men to be close to seven feet tall. The slam -dunk has added another dimension to the game, and now there is the three point shot. Originally, the line was mea - sured from the middle of the basket and reached 19ft. 9in. Now the rule has been rewritten to measure the shot from the backboard. The rule now reads that a three point shot is one of 21ft. or more. It makes no difference from where the line is measured, it still counts three points, and is here to stay. Attending a Bulldog basketball game adds excitement to student life at Union. Screams of " Smooth " and " We love you.

This Is Bulldog Country Baseball — America ' s sport. Father ' s statt their sons at an early age playing baseball. They show them the fundamen- tals of hitting, pitching, and catching, hoping to see their sons playing major league baseball in futute years. Many col- leges foster professional careers. Union University has proven to be one of the best colleges at which to play baseball. With a third place NAIA national ranking in 1983, and a thirteenth place ranking in 198}, Bulldog Baseball has drawn national at- tention. Still tiding on that highly regarded reputation, the Bulldogs enter into a ptomising 1986-87 season. Coach Bill Green ' s Bulldogs finished the 1983-86 season with a 26-13 record. Just missing the district toutnament by one game. After the spring term, many of the Bulldog players participated in summet league baseball in different areas across the Southeast. With improved talents and abilities, the ream regrouped in September fot an impressive tall season. By using domineering pitching and hitting, the Bulldogs posted a 21-2 record. A couple of the reasons for the Bulldog ' s success wete the overpowering pitching of new- comer Cano Velez from Puerto Rico, and the long-ball hitting of junior college ttansfer Carson Mclllwain. As the Bulldogs were beginning their season, the majot leaguers were bringing theirs to a close. Ptobably one of the most surprising events this year was the signing of Bo Jackson to a ptofessional baseball career with the Kansas City Royals. Jack- son, the Heisman Ttophy Winner, tutned down a ptomising career in the NFL to play baseball. Jackson said, " I have my trophy for football, " and signed a $200,000 contract instead of a $2,000,000 contract. .- . ii%je£: - ! S ' » ;i» ' - ' 0!A -i t i " ' - ' =- " • " i .

The Bulldog Helm Coach Bill Green, beginning his second year as the skipper of the Bull- dog Baseball team, has only high praises for this year ' s squad. Trying to improve on last year ' s record, (which included a victory over NCAA power- house Mississippi State), Coach Green takes his winning reputation into the 1986-87 season. The two-time VSAC Coach of the Year feels that he has more talent on the team this year than last. He has set high expectations for this year ' s team, and plans for his Bulldogs to host the 1987 TCAC Dis- trict Tournament. To play host for this tournament, the Bulldogs would have to win the TCAC. a feat that Bulldog fans would be more than happy to witness. Coach Green says, " Anything beyond the TCAC Tourna- ment will be icing on the cake! " With Coach Bill Green ' s winning reputa- tion, and the Bulldogs winning tradi- tion, we may see plenty of " icing " this season. - «« ' « «fei: p«t ' S! ' Bo ' s first major league stop was in Mem ■ phis where he played with the Memphis Chick s. There he batted as low as .074, until finally he hit a line drive that traveled over 500 ft. fot a grand slam home ran. With power and speed. Bo Jackson may have a future in the Major Leagues. Probably the only race that was close this year in professional baseball was the race for the batting title, where Wade Boggs edged out Don Mattingly in the last few games of the season. In the NL East, the New York Mets jumped out of the starting blocks early, never looked back, and won more games than any team in the history of the game. After the All-Star break, the Houston Astros took a commanding lead in the NL West and cruised to the pennant. The Boston Red Sox may have stumbled slightly after the break, but regained their composure in time to win the AL East. Out on the west coast. Gene Autry ' s Califor- nia Angels took a trip to Wally World, and won the AL West. The American League and National League Championship Series proved to be two of the most bizarre ever Late game rallies, extra in- nings and game winning homeruns filled al- most every game. The Boston Red Sox, down to their last strike of the American League Series in game six, rallied to win the Series in seven games.

May 25-30 NAIA World Series Lewiston, Idaho ' TCAC (2)Doubleheader The New York Mets may ha ve struggled in the National League Series, but were still able co finish the Astros in six games. What a match up! Boston against New York!! Roger Clemens against Dwight Gooden! What more could one want? Just as Bos- ton had been down to their last strike in the AL Championship Series, they had the Mets down to their last strike of the season. Yogi Berra once said, " It ain ' t over ' til its over " , and he was right. Ray Knight, the Series eventual MVP. singled to center scoring Gary Carter, and closed the BoSox lead to 3-4. A wild pitch scored Kevin Mitchell from third. The game was tied. Mookie Wilson with a 3-2 count, hit a soft-hopper down the first base line, through Bill Buckner ' s legs, and Ray Knight scored to win the game. The Mets went on to win game seven and the World Series. In February, the Bulldogs will begin the long road that ends in Lewiston. Idaho, with the NAIA World Series. That road will take the Bulldogs away from the friendly confines of the Union University ' field, and into other parts ot Tennessee. Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. The Bulldogs carry with them a winning tradition chat opposing teams will be wanting to defeat. In May rhe Bulldog ' s season will draw to a close. The dreams and hopes that were established in the fall will either be realities or disappointments. It will all rest on that last pitch, and remember. " It ain ' t over ' til its over! " Bryan Kidd, when not on the mound, takes pitching statistics. Lady ' Love ' The days ot ladies wearing long dresses on the tennis courts are gone. Competition is the name of the game now. Long, hot days in the sun, preparing for upcoming tour- naments: intense matches on humid Saturday afternoons; this is what women ' s tennis has evolved into. Freshmen star, Jessica Navarro, from Bolivia, South America, has already made her presence known at Union. She won three local tournaments in the fall, placed second out of a field of 31 in the Sewanee In- door Invitational Tournament, and with her partner, Stacie Whaley, won the doubles. Maybe Martina is ranked no. 1 in the world, but one thing is definite, every after- noon you can find Coach Williams and her tennis team on the courts preparing for their next challenge. front row left to right; fori Viar, Jessi- ca Navarro.

Coach Karen McWherter Foreign Exchange Just as women ' s tennis has changed over the past de- cades, so has men ' s tennis. People from all walks of life have grown to enjoy tennis. The Beckers, Connors and McEnroes of the world have made this game interesting to watch. This year ' s team at Union is centered around academic All-American Gunnar Adal- berth. Gunnar achieved na- tional ranking at the end of last year by reaching the semi- fmals of the conference tour- nament, and by defeating one of the top five collegiate play - ers in the nation. Gunnar has already reached national rank- ing this year. The team ' s schedule con- sisted of tough conference matches and a trip to Florida. left to right: Randy Greenhaw, Robert Johnson.

Union Linksters Golf, a legendar) Scottish game, has for years been an American pasttime. Though the media, names like Ben Hogan. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicholas, and Gicg Norman, have become household words. What other sport would name a tournament — The Masters. ' ' Where else would you hear terms like birdies, bogeys, eagles, and fore, but on a golf course.- ' Golf also has brought recognition to Union University. Coach Don Morris matched his Linksters with several Division M schools, and they played up to par, or even " birdie " . This fall, in the Goodyear Tournament in Union City, TN, a tournament which Union University hosted, the golf team finished fifth out of fourteen teams. Finishing tenth out of a field of thirty-one teams at the Hart Tournament in Culman, AL, pleased Coach Morris. With tesults like these. Coach Don Morris and the Union University golf team has set their sights on the National Tournament. This team will practice for hours preparing for next Spring ' s season. Shag ball after shag ball will be hit. Putts, drives, and chips will be perfected. Maybe some of these guys will go on to professional careers. Maybe someday we will hear on television, " Now on the tee, a graduate from Union University ... " Senior. Mike Olexa, sinks this early morn - ing putt for birdie. Senior, Jeff Copeland, blasts out of the trap in his charge for the green. Front row left to right: Shea Bromley, Steve Simpson. Mike Olexa. Chip Abernathy.

Union Cheerleaders The 1986-87 Union University cheerlead- ers were forced Co work especially hard this year. The squad was not officially chosen until the end of September. The delay was caused by the resignation at last year ' s squad. The squad prepared all summer and fall for the season, and then the NAIA put stipulations on the stunts cheerleaders could perform. This ruling was so frustrating chat the squad was not compelled to return. This departure produced a need for an entirely new group The new cheerleaders worked long, late nights preparing for the season opener at Bethel College. They dedicated their time and energy to being the best they could be. Ms. Nancy Ross, the new sponsor, has only high praises for her group. Through the winter and into the spring, the cheerleaders will cheer our Bulldogs on to victor) ' . Gooo dawgs! sic ' em! woof! woof! woof! will forever fill the air. Amateurs At Work It has been said that the intramural courts, fields, and tracks are the only places where the true amateurs still exist. Intramural athletes are not paid for their abilities. The only reward they can hope to obtain is the thrill of victory. For this reason intramural athletes have been titled " Professional Amateurs " . Union offers a wide variety of in- tramural sports. This variety ranges from the finesse and precision offris- beegolfto the strength and challenge of (lag football. Mix this variety with the competitive spirit of the Greeks, Independents, and the BSU, and there is a place for everyone. No qualifica - tions exist for intramural sports. All that is needed is a desire to participate. Whoever said intramurals are all fun and games needs to witness our program. Rarely does anyone lea ve the football field without a bruise, cut, or scrape of some kind. Some injuries sustained are worse than others. Women, as well as men, jam fmgers, sprain ankles, and ■ twist knees. The official " non-contact " sport of bas- ketball takes on a new dimension inside the campus gyms. Sometimes it seems as though the object of the game has changed from trying to score the most points to acquiring the most fouls. Although these facts may be true, just ask anyone who has participat - ed in an intramural event it they have any regrets, and their answer will be " no " . Many of these athletes are former high school stand-outs who just can ' t let go of their addiction to sports. Many others participate to relieve the pressures of college. Somewhere in this conglomeration of competitive reasons is blended a vital aspect ot Union University. Union intramurals represent a refuge where former stars still shine bright and future stars prepare for lite. __ J-1 Academics f i ; H w mk I kI I 4 I H « I H • " ' v HH Union ' s Interim President Dr. Hyran Barefoot " I ' ve known Dr. Barefoot for 30 years and the thing that impresses we the most is that he is a man of absolute — unquestionable integrity. He is just who he is, no shams. " — Mr. Bob Elliott Many of you may have seen " the man behind the bow tie " but have never given it much thought as to what kind of man he really is. This man has been walking Union ' s hallways for a total of 28 years. His name? Dr. Hyran Barefoot. He is the Vice-President of Academic Affairs and right now he holds another title, that of " Interim President of Union University " . However, there is a side to this man that we as students do not often get a chance to see. He is a lover and restorer of antique furniture. Two refinisbed tables in his office are examples of his skill. The past W years he has spent his summer vacations working on his 80 year old home on Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada. " What I recall most about Dr. Barefoot is a story he told about an old Canadian Fisherman riding with him in his boat. When the outboard motor died the old fisherman made comment that anyone else would sink the boat, but Dr. Barefoot would instead sell it as an antique and make $200 from it! " — Dr. Ernest Pinson Married in 1949, he has i daughters and 6 " fabulous " grandchildren who are his pride and joy! When asked about his grandchildren he quickly replied, " having grandkids was better than becoming a father! Had I known that grandkids were that great, I would have had them first! " In his office he proudly displays what he calls his " Grandkid ' s Corner. " On his desk is a framed crayoned picture with a special message to " Papaw " . " There is a joke that comes to mind about a man who boarded a bus and asked the gentleman seated by himself in the first seat if he had any grandchildren. The gentleman answered " yes " . The man proceeded to the next four rows with the same question, each time receiving the answer, " yes " . Finally when the man reached the sixth row and asked the gentleman if he had any grandchildren, the gentle- man answered " No, I do not " . The man excitedly replied, " Good! Scoot over and let me tell you about mine! " As I see it, that man had to have been Dr. Hyran Barefoot! " — Dr. John Adams Having a Doctorate in Theology from New Orleans Seminary, he states that his favorite place is in the class room — teaching. He loves the one on one experience with bis students. " I find that teaching is more satisfying than administration. " He loved teaching Philosophy and Religion and continues to teach one class a semester of Greek. As for his bow ties — he says he has about twenty of them. " I used to wear them a long time ago. I stopped for a number of years, then picked it back up again about a year ago after finding some hanging in my closet, " And no. they are not clip-on; like Dr. Barefoot, they are the " real McCoys. " " Last year as Chairman of the Faculty Forum, I was amazed that no matter how many times I went to Dr. Barefoot he was always willing to take the time to listen, discuss, and follow through on faculty concerns. I admire him as a man of great integrity and consistency! " — Dr. Louise Bentley " And we know that all things work together lor good to them that love God. to them who are the called according to his purpose. " Romans 8:28 Vice Fresidents Dr. John Adams Vice President for Religii Affairs Dr. Maggie Nell Brewer Vice President for Student Affairs Mr. R.G. Elliot Vice President for Business Affairs Mr. Larry Stewart Vice President of Development For a university to operate efficiently, important decisons must be made. Decisions concerning student life, religious matters, business, and development require strong, effective administrators. The needs of Union must be considered not only for the present, but also for the future. As Vice President for Religious Affairs, Dr. John Adams is in charge of planning and programming all religious activities such as required chapel exercises. Religious Emphasis Weeks, dorm devotions, and weekend revival teams. Dr. Brewer, as Vice President for Student Affairs, is responsible for the operation of the Student Affaits Department, which includes any event which affects student life. Some responsibilities include working with housing directors to coordinate housing, supervising all organizations and activities, and serving as chief judicial officer for student discipline. Balancing Union ' s budget, supervising the Staff Petsonnel, and handling the business portion of student accounts are only a few of the issues that Mr. Elliot must confront as Union ' s Vice President for Business Affairs. Mr. Stewatt is responsible for supervising the areas of student recruitment, public relations, and most importantly — scholarship support. These four people, when put together, keep Union functioning both efficiently and effectively. Academic Center tti Dr. James Baggett Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Jane Nichols Registrar Sandra Hathcox Student Re When Union students have problems or need answers Co questions concerning academic life, most of them will head for the academic center. Upon entering, the student will find Jane Nichols, " The Lady With Diplomas m Her Hand, who is responsible for the junior and senior ratings and evaluations. This information along with student academic histories and more are kept on the 20,000 microfilm records that are under the control of Dr. James Baggett. Moving from Self -Study Director, Dr. Baggett is serving his first year as Vice President of Academic Affairs. He oversees class registration, the dropping of classes, withdrawals, students ' academic standings, and mid -term and final grades. Mts. Sandra Hathcox is serving her second year as Union ' s Guidance and Retention counselor; a position created only two years ago. If a student is having any academic or social difficulties, then Mrs. Hathcox s door is always open. Even if things seem to be going just great, a student never knows when they will be called into her office, whether it be for poor academic performance or the withdrawl ftom Union altogether. Just remember, " The Academic Center is watching YOU!

Derald Harris Assisanc VP for Development Olen Law Director of Planr)ed Giving Development Paul Veazey Director of Denominational Support Have you ever wondered where the money for scholarships comes from or how Union receives its support or who takes care of student recruitment and public relations? All of these activities and more are handled by the Department of Development. This department is responsible for the future of Union University. A major goal for the Department was met December 31 — the ten Million dollar endowment fund. Only the interest on this money is used, provid- ing the college with a strong, constant base of support for scholarships and other fmanc ial needs. The Devel- opment department ' s goals are to provide its students with the lowest tuition of all Baptist universities in the State of Tennessee, and to remain fifth lowest in tuition of all Baptist universities in the United States. It also plans to raise as much money as possible for scholarships, the essential base for most students at- tending Baptist universities. The Director of Denominational Support is in charge of informing pastors and churches about the organizations and activities at Union. The alumni of U. U. are as important to Union as students. The Director of Alumni Affairs plans events for enjoyment of yesterday ' s students. This year the alumni took part in a riverboat cruise in Memphis. The theme of the cruise was " RoUin ' on the River " in which 239 Alumni took part. Some alumni also partic- ipated in a trip to Canada -The Fall Foliage Tour.

Students can be assisted with things ranging from financial to roommate problems. The placement service is a service designed to help Union graduates achieve full time employment. The housing director ' s are always ready to help students with roommate problems or apartment problems. Activities directors plan things such as skating parties, movies, and even concerts. Student Affairs make students top priority in every endeavor. Religious Activities Since the college is committed to the spiritual as well as the academic and social development of individuals, a strong emphasis upon religious life and activities is evident on Union ' s campus. The religious life and activities at Union are designed to accomplish two things: to minister to the spiritual needs of individuals and to provide individuals opportunities for Christian service. Activities which minister to the spiritual needs are chapel exercises, religious emphasis weeks, which are held twice each year. Other activities include revival teams and various social ministries. There is never a dull moment to be found in the Religious Affairs office! Students stop by constantly to say " hello " to Rose and Dr. Adams (Dr. J) or " hanging out " and teasing Richard about his hair (or of that he no longer has.) All in all, its a warm friendly place with Loads of Love! Richard HoHoman Assistant VP — Religious Activities John Adams Vice President — Religious Activities Carroll Griffin Director of Student Enlistment Admissions Cappy Gillum Admissions Counselor Luanne Powell Admissions Counselor The Admissions office is a very important part of Union University, The Student Foundation is part of this office and adds to its effectiveness by showing prospective students the campus and its facilities. Admission counselors attend career days at high schools to give students information on Union and its programs. Carroll Griffin is always there making people laugh — if you are wondering how he does it — take a look at him. Ms. Lamben, Mrs. Robinson are always organizing meetings and taking care of all those necessary evils with a smile. And Mrs. Powell. Mrs. Wingo, and Mr. Bates keep students coming in and signing up to attend this great institution.

For faculty, a place of monetary gain. For students, a place of good times and bad. a place almost always busy assisting them in various ways with their financial matters. From cashing checks (if we have any), assisting in the signing of TSAC and student loan checks to adding an interest charge to our delinquent student bill. It ' s a tough job but someone has to do it and we are all very thankful for all the assistance they have given out to all. Mutual feelings are shared by all who work in the Business Office: " We in the Business Office do a variety of things. We talk, we laugh, we smile and sometimes we even sing. Contrary to popular belief, we really, really try to give you the best of service and give it with a smile. " College Services Marjorie Richard Barbara Maners The rush is on!! In college services there is never a dull moment whether it be working on a mail out that needed to be mailed two days ago, printing tickets for an upcoming concert, or typing Dr Jones ' Old Testament Final. College Services is the " backbone of the school " — performing services for the faculty, administra- tion, and staff such as word processing, typing offset printing, mailing outgoing mail, and tele- phone dictation transcribing. Their goal is to process paper work in a faster, more efficient and professional manner. When walking into College Services the first thing you see is a poster expressing their senti- ments: " Shall I rush your rush job before I start the rush job I was rushing when you rushed in.

Next to the Cafeteria, the library is just about the most used facility at Union. When it comes right down to it, the library can be a place of main social gathering (oops! Studying that is!!) especially right before exams. Being the central facet of Union ' s Learning Resource Center, the library serves as an information and study center for on-campus students and those students off-campus as well. The facility has undergone many changes under the direction of Mr. Robertson, including the conversion of 400 periodicals to microfiche. And many more changes planned for the future to make room for an audio -visual, production designer room. To coincide with this, TV monitors and players would be placed in the listening room, and groups of up to ten could view tapes in the microfilm room. Deans Dr Howard Newell, Dean School of Professional Studies Dr. James Baggett, Dean School of Humanities Dr. Patricia Pinson. Dean School of Fine Arts Dr. Bill Bouchillon. Dean School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences Mrs. Regina Saftel, Dean School of Nursing The five Deans of Union University function to serve as a bridge between administration and faculty. Their job includes evaluating the professors instruc- tional and professional growth and reviewing academ ■ ic policies every two months. They work closely with the Associate Vice-President of Academic Affairs to coor dinate curriculum and class scheduling. The aca - demic departments are divided into five schools: Fine Arts, Humanities, Natural and Behavioral Sciences, Nursing, and Professional Studies. Dr. Baggett de- scribed the deans role when he said, " People influence others to strive for the best. Colleagues influence other colleagues sometimes more than faculty. " Dr. Cynchia Jayne Department Chaitman Language Have you ever wanted to speak and be able to understand a different language or find out about other cultures other than your own? Union ' s Department of Languages can allow you to do just that. Majors can be achieved in both French and Spanish. Here the student can gain a considerable profi- ciency in the use and understanding of the culture ot those who speak the language and possibly travel abroad in help- ing with the study of their particular major. A minor can be achieved in Greek, which helps many students develop the basic skills for understanding and interpreting the Greek New Testament. And, to the few die-hards that take one or both of the German courses offered, " Guten tag. " Or Judy Kern Assistant Professor Art Exercising the mind and the spirit through the training of the hands and eyes is one of the primary tasks of the Art Department. Art mediums used in- clude: watercolor, oil, pottery, print and photography. The Art Department provides broad opportunities for creative expression of both conceptual and perceptual types within the context of the Christian community. The challenge of coordinating the hand, eye, and heart is of primary concern for the undergraduate liberal arts student. And, of least concern to the stu - dent, is that " Cleanliness is next to impossible. " Grove Robinson Professor Dr. William Hedspeth Department Chairman Education Dr Wayne Alford Professor Carolyn Tomlin Assistant Professor The aim of the Education Department is to train competent teachers. It is said that the future of a mation rests with its youth. These youth will be a direct product of the teaching they have received. Students in the teaching education major and minor at Union are giving practical experience in the classroom. Music Dr. Kenneth Hartley Department Chairman Mr. Joseph Blass Professor Dr. Pat Pinson Professor Miss Robin Flood Assistant Professor When one first encounters the music hall at Union, one meets several unusual and interesting sights and sounds. At one end of the music hall is Don Johnson (alias Dr. Hartley in his cream jacket), while at the other end sits a crowd of music hall " couch potatoes " (alias music majors acting like they ' re not busy). The backdrop for the " couch potato " actors was once a large depressionistic painting of a much older Mr. Huffman but has now been replaced by a labyrinth that Rick Osborne is still trying to find his way through (Dr. Blass provides him with yellow post-it notes to mark his place.) If one decides to watch this " couch potato " show, one should be sure to go before 10p.m. or the " monster " jungle plant will attack. Also beware of Tony Jones ' locker as it has been known to fly open and spew forth books, music, etc. (especially etc.). If one decides to take a noonday stroll down this hall, football pads and helmet are in order as all the music students and faculty rush to see Dr. Blass ' s newly posted " Far Side " (and it ' s flip side). Another familiar sight is that of Felix the Cat posters courtesy of Carroll Griffin. The sounds are much prettier and a lot less unusual (sometimes). The " big " sounds from the large ensem- bles of Chorus, Union Singers, Band, Stage Band, and Piano Ensemble contrasts with the smaller ensembles of Proclamation, Covenant, and Chamber Singers. . . . And this all comes together in Union ' s Music Hall! Max Pugh Associate Professor Charles Huffman Assistant Professor Miss Norma Humphreys Instructor Religion And Fliilosopliy Dr David Irby Department Cbaitman Dr. Clyde Tilley Professor Dr. James Jones Associate Professor The Religion and Philosophy departments aim for the goal of helping students better understand and appreciate the Bible as the sacred literature of the Christian faith. The Religion department helps students prepare for the pastorate and other church related vocations. Major philosophical interpretations of the meaning of reality and life are also explored through these departments. Students who are striving to meet their major or minor requirements in these areas find it tough, bat they are rewarded ten -fold with the knowledge of Biblical, historical, and theological issues and viewpoints. " Life can only be understood backwards, but it mast be lived forwards. " History Dr James Edmonson Department Chairman Dr. Stephen Carls Associate Professor The history department at Union has been making history of its own the past ten years. The area has expanded to include majors in history and social, as well as minors in politi- cal science and pre -law. Organizations sup- plement the faculty and curriculum. The groups include the history club, Phi Alpha Theta history fraternity and the Andrew T. " Tip " Taylor Pre -Legal Society. Keeping with Dr James Edmonson ' s his- tory philosophy of " Open eyes and expand the minds " , field trips are an important part of the history program at Union. The trips are focused around historical sites. A student recently said of the trip " I learned as much by taking a trip as I did in the three hour course and this trip was cheaper and more fun. " Dr. Terry Lindley Assistant Professor Mrs. Gay Semrau Psychology " Lite IS a daring adventure or it is nothing at all. " Dr. Bill Bouchillon Tewsi Trull Deparrment Chairman Instructor Dr. David Vickery Assistant Professor Have you ever said to yourself, " I ' m losing it, " or " I ' m going crazy " ? Well if that ' s the case, don ' t worry you ' re just like the rest of us: NORMAL. What the Psychology department does is not only interpret psychological disorders, but tries to gain a better understanding of abnormal behavior. Students can receive a major or minor in Psychology or a teacher ' s certification in the area of Psychology. Courses are designed to survey various areas in the field of Psychology, enabling students to gain the knowledge and understanding of human relations. Faculty try to apply concepts of individual adjustment to the learning of prominent theories in the development of personalities. Classes are not only designed as a learning experience but also are a place and source of understanding one ' s self. As Dr. " Vickery says, " Teaching to me is play and I think everyone should play. " Sociology The Sociology Department ' s courses are designed to present both a practical and a scientific analysis of human relationships in the various areas of social life. These courses not only prepare the student for job opportunities but also teach them to deal with daily problems. " I want to be approachable inside and outside of class. I want to be a broad role model. I enjoy working here at Union. Sociology is to provide an overall analysis of living in society. To teach people to be effective members of society. " — Dr. Lytle Givens " The absence of alternatives clears the mind rnarvelously. " — Henry Kissinger Or Lytle Givens Department Chairman Dr. Jim Wooren Assistant Professor English The purpose of [he English Dept. is to help students develop skills in writing and reading and in the appreciation of literature. Many courses are offered including those ap- pealing to the aesthetic as well as to the practical nature of man. The English Dept. serves the dual purpose of qualifying future teachers of English and exciting all students to search more diligently for the riches in the written word. Dr. George Clark Department Chairman Dr. Ernest Pinson Professor Dr. Louise Bentley Associate Professor Ms. Marilyn Smothe. Assistant Professor Communications Dr Michael Pollock Department Chairman Mr. Robert Shuttlewonh Assistant Professor Mr. David Burke Instructor Ms. Patty Smith Instructor The Communications Department at Union continues to grow every year. This year we have 112 student that are eithet majors or minors. One reason for the growth is due to the many opportunities available, including theatre, speech, journalism, and broadcasting. The radio -television lab is furnished with professional equipment. Internships are available in working with radio T V. In the future we hope to have our own radio station. Business Mr. Don Laney is the newest faculty member of the Business department. According to him the Christian and Academic atmosphere is what drew him to Union University. Among the changes Mr. Laney would like to see in Union ' s curriculum for the school of business to offer ethnic courses. His favorite memory of college is the friendships chat he made and he sees the possibility of making more friendships here at Union. Union welcomes Mr. Don Laney to its staff. Dr. Howard Newell Department Chairman Dr. Walton Padelford Assistant Professor Don Laney Assistant Professor Curtis Scott Associate Professor It ' s your attitude, not your aptitude that de- termines you altitude. The Business Administtation department of Union University offers four different majors. These include: Accounting, Economics and Finance, Management and Marketing, and Office Administration. Minors are also offered in the same four areas. In addition, a two year Associate of Science degree is available in Office Administration. The major and minor programs are designed to prepare students for graduate study in business law and related diciplines. These courses are designed to provide adequate preparation for immediate employment in business, teaching and or government service. Biology M Elsie Smith Department Chairman Dr. Michael McMahan Associate Professor Dr. Terry Spohn Assistant Professor Mt. James Biccner Instructor Most of Union ' s Bioiogy majors are students in prehealtfi related fields. Because oftfiis. f ie department helps to prepare students for studies in areas such as dentistry, pharmacy and medicine. The Biology department of Union places emphasis on motivating students to develop investigative techniques. The Biology Department welcomes a new instructor this year; Mr. Sinner. Chemistry And Fhysics Dr. Kyle Hathcox Department Chairman Dr. Jimmy Davis Assistant Professor Dr. Eugene Gooch Assistant Professor The Chemistry department at Union helps to prepare students for a job as a professional chemist, an elementary or secondary teacher, a graduate student or a job in professional health such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, medical technology, or veterinary science. Recent graduates have attended graduate school at Purdue, University of Illinois, University of Alabama, Memphis State and University of Tennessee. Improvements planned for the department include upgrading the facilities so the students work with modern equipment and computer -assisted instruction in the laboratories. The Physics department has a purpose to help the student understand the workings behind many of the physical phenomena that occur around the student every day. A secondary purpose is to create an interest in the student to realize and to utilize the powers of analysis in all aspects of life. Math Dr. Joseph Tucker Chairman Richard Dehn Associate Professor Don Richard Assistant Professor Have you noticed that the art of adding two and two becomes more complicated once you reach the college level. ' ' Whether you are preparing to enter a math -related field or trying to meet core requirements, the math department ' s goal is to make this business of functions, integrals, and imaginary numbers a little bit easier to understand. The math dept. is currently adding a second course in Statistics and a new course in Descrete Math. Hero is a robot built by Mr. Nadig of the Computer Science Dept.

Hero has a gripper that opens and closes and his head swivels. He has a change in sound detector as well as a light level indicator and a distance indicator. Hero can also talk and even sing! A practical application for Hero would be as a se- curity guard. A program can be written which links He- ro ' s ability to detect changes in sound with his ability to talk and move . . .

How many students were enrolled in 1962 ' s nursing class? Don r have any idea? Well, Union University began it ' s nursing program in 1962 with 34 students enrolled. Because the program has grown to the point of accepting a maximum of 100 students each fall, many nursing hopefuls have to be turned away until the following year. The Union University School of Nursing is dedicated to improving nursing health care. Nursing Instructors assist students in caring for the total needs of the patient. This includes basic communication betwee n the nurse and patient to caring for the critically ill patient. General education courses and nursing education courses on Union ' s Campus are combined with patient care experiences in hospitals and health agencies in Madison County. Of Science In nursing Nancy Herron Assistant Professor Dorothy Yarbro Assistant Professor Ivy Barker Assistant Professor Joyce Montgomery Associate Professor Nancy Hight Sec. of Nursing Student nurses get plenty of " hands-on " experience and many chances for valuable educational observation experiences. Union works closely with Jackson -Madison County General Hospital, Western State Mental Health Center, Jackson Dialysis Clinic, The CP Center, and many, many more. Nursing students practice their technical skills in the fully stocked lab center located on Union ' s campus. 96% of those finishing Union ' s Associate of Science in Nursing program per year have passed the State Nursing Boards. The Baccalaureate Degree Programs allows ASN graduates to expand their education to prepare for leadership and management roles in professional nursing.

This was the weekend that the newest arrivals to our campus moved into their dorms, met with their faculty advi- sors and planned their class schedules. The next day included such events as: an activities center orientation, a freshman cookout at the activities center, and final- ly a residence complex orientation. This retreat gave the freshmen an opportunity to get acquainted and to make new friends. Davenport, Anissa, Wickliffe, KY Davis, Carolyn, Toone, TN Deagnon. Justin. Jackson.

Even though I ' ve only been here for a short time, I have already grown to love Union. Being a small school, it allows you to get to know more people faster. I have already made many friends and I know that I will make many more. There is such a friendly atmosphere, I really feel at home. I know that I will grow in many ways during my stay here and I am very much looking forward to the many good times that are in my future. Not only will Union give me friends and good times, but it will give me a good education to help me make it in life after college. — Tonya Merrick I chose Union because it is a small Christian School offering a personal atmosphere. The friendliness of the faculty and students is clearly evident in the way they present themselves. I can see that Union University was the wise choice! — Cara Beth Clements A freshman ' s life is filled with hectic schedules, new faces, and extracurricular ac- tivities. On Union ' s campus freshman are spotted quite easily (especially in the com - mons.) Washing your own clothes, cleaning your room and attending all your chapels are a few of the adjustments a freshman is urged to fulfill. Most freshman greet college with high expectations. Their well planned expec- tations are soon squandered by the " distort- ed " world of reality. They find that college is a maturing period as much as a learning experience. And as always (since colleges have existed) freshman survive year after year and eventually grow up to be sopho- mores, juniors, and finally the goal of col- lege — the graduating senior. So freshman — hang on, there are greater vistas in your horizons.

This time they knew the faces, and the places, and what to do. They have learned the importance of such things as studying, chapel attendance, and getting plenty of sleep. They also know the importance of those late night trips to get that midnight snack, those special events, those all impor- tant late night rap sessions, and those ever present pranks. The sophomores, however, have not yet learned how to juggle all of these overlapping events — but they ' re working on it. Alderson, Julie.

Julie Alderson 1 • • WW • Ih} j«L chose Union for many reasons. The main reason was because it is a Christian college. I wanted to go to a school that supported Jesus Christ and wasn ' t ashamed to proclaim His name. The great academic program here at Union impressed me also. The campus is smaller than other schools which allows for more personable attention from teachers and closeness of the students. Union is also close to my hometown. I chose Union for these reasons and Tve found all of these traits and more. Tammie Bonee I think the most interesting thing about Union is that It is small enough that you can get to know everyone on the campus. Regina Maners Michael, Janet, Jackson.

So many times I fall short, but at Union I have so many Christian friends who are contin- ually encouraging me. I ' m proud to be pan of such a fine Christian in- stitution and I ' m thankful for the impact it has had on my life. — Jane Ann Besides growing aca- demically and socially, I have also grown spiri- tually. As a scudenc, I fre- quently find myself leav- ing God out of my busy schedule. Having Chris- tian friends and instruc- tors has helped me realize the importance ot finding time for God. It is nearly impossible to express what Union University means to me. I know that in years to come there will be even more reasons why Union is important to me. For now I can honestly say Union has truly become my home away from home. — Norma Lin Williams Phillips, Marry, SarJis, TN Phillips, Shawn, Jackson, TN Pickle, Sandra, Sclmer, TN Poindcxrer, Ro cr, SIkcscon.

But, wait a minute . . . no more? As in finished? You mean four years have already passed and I have to leave Union now? Oh. That ' s not so great. I ' m really gonna miss it here! I ' ll always remember how friendly the people are, how much the profes- sors really care, and just the exciting feeling of being a part of Union. Dorm life will surely hold a lot of memories, and I won ' t forget how the organizations here made college life the best it could be.

My great-great grandfather was G.M. Savage, Union ' s president, and my parents also came here. Even though I ha ve always heard about Union I really didn ' t know what to expect. This school has so many special qualities, but the things I love about it are the friends I have made and the principles I have been taught. Union Univer- sity does have high Ideals, but it also taught me that wherever I am I have someone to turn to. As a senior, I can look back on my college days and see that I made the right choice!

In high school I had alot of good friends — but after graduation we went our separate ways and lost touch. I know, however, the friendships that I have made at Union will last forever. There is such a diverse group of people at Union — each with some unique talent and personality. When I have looked in an area — there was always a friend to help me — whenever I cried there was a shoulder, and when there was a frown — laughter changed it. Union gave me the pre- cious opportunity to make friends, enjoy friendships, and to love those friends. I know these bonds will never be broken.

He has taught me faith and endurance (especially during finals week!) that will last a lifetime.

Suzanna, BIytheville, AR Tingle, Karl, Brownsville, TN Tingle, Robert, Bath Springs, TN In my years here at Union I have seen many changes. Changes in laces, not only of people but also in the faces ofche campus. I have seen rapid growth over the last four years. We can only thank the Lord for his blessings on us and the chance to receive a Christian education such as we have. As I look back, I see beautiful times. Whether happy or sad, it matters not. I think of all the people I have met and try to image what my life would have been like without each of them. It would have, no doubt, been much less fulfilling. As I prepare to leave Union, I acknowledge the void that will soon be present. It will surely seem as though a part of me is missing. I am like the old seafarer who said, " I need only a ship and a star to steer by. " I have my ship in my education and my star in my Creator. With this combination I cannot veer too far off of my life ' s appointed course. I leave here with the hopes that I am the best I can be for God and myself With this confidence I hope one day I may be of service to someone in need.

A Special TMAniiS ' ' To Our Fhotographers Mr. Shuttleworth Scott Fowler And Tammy Smith For the many hours taking pictures and developing them in the darkroom . . . . . . And To The STAFF that Made The Dream Of The 1987 Lest We Forget Yearbook A Reality A Special Congratulations To Dr. Barefoot Our new President The ' 87 yearbook comes to a close. A year full of memories and dreams have been captured and we, the staff, hope you enjoy it time after time. But is this really a close, a stopping place, an ending, are we really closing up shopr ' We think not! Looking over the past school year, many voices and images come to mind; images and voices that will never end, but live forever Remember; Every experience God gives us . . . Every person he puts in our lives . . . is the perfect preparation for the future that only he can see. Good instincts tell you what to do long before your head figures it out. Laughter is a rran- quilizer with no side effects. Intelligent. ' ' His train ot thought never left the depot. 1 mj L i ' J a. 1 A winning ' smile is the best .c 5 y9L .wf y r 9 f . ■ r i i IS? " ' I 1 PWB ES H " ' ' ' n. ' 4 Me a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the .itmosphere. Persistent? She ' d have the last word with an echo. Memorable When one is asked to describe a yearbook in one word the most common response is " memoties " . I believe that memories play the major role in a yearbook. It conjures up thoughts of the past. The past, as we refer to it, was at one time the present — our present as we struggled to meet the challenges of the day. The challenges we met not only grati- fied us then, but also laid the foundation for our future. Our follies and adventures all become a part of the memories we share. One group that learned together was the annual staff We started out with new ideas and big dreams and immediately found work, work, and more work. We also found friend- ships and abundant good times. The staff gath- ers more memories than anyone as we compile the year ' s events and share in the achievements of others. The staff has provided a wealth of support and hard work to bring the best year- book yet to Union. Many changes have taken place — hopefully for the better. I would like to personally thank Mr. Shuttleworth — " Rob- Bob " — for his belief in us and his " unique " sense of humor. Thanks, Penny, for your pa - tience and endurance and putting up with a multitude of problems. I want to thank Scott and Tammy for all of those long hours spent in the darkroom and roaming the campus with a camera permanently attached to their hands. And thanks to everyone else who provided a never-ending stream of work. The year has come and gone but our memo- ries will linger We now hold 1987 in our hearts and minds. Our hope, as a staff, is that a little bit is preserved between the covers of the ' 87 annu- al. In looking over the past year, a verse of a song seems to sum it all up . . . " Packing up the dreams God planted in the fertile soil of you — can ' t believe the hopes he ' s granted means a chapter in your life is through. We ' ll keep you close as always, it won ' t even seem you ' ve gone because our hearts in big and small ways will keep the love that keeps us strong, for friends are friends forever if the Lord is Lord of them. " Thank you. Lord, for our special friends. note . 1 This is the second year withjosten ' s Publications Company. With the help of our representative, Johnny Cole. Our publication has greatly improved. This year is the last time the annual will come out in the spring. The next annual will be released in the fall.
