The 1987- 1988 school year was a year of change, a year of new atti- tudes, a year of expansion, a year of accomplishment, a great year! The school year was brought in with a new president — Hyran E. Barefoot was inaugurated as the four- teenth president of Union Uni- versity on October 16, 1987. And with the new president came a new attitude! No long- er is Union looking back to its history, resting on its heritage. Instead Union is looking to the future, preparing for tomor- row ' s world. This change in at- titude is portrayed in the change in the Union logo from the traditional two U ' s on the Bible foundation to the new, more modern Union logo. Both these logos were placed on this year ' s Lest We Forget cover for the very reason of portraying the change in atti- tude. And with looking to the fu- ture comes expansion. Union announced the expansion of its academic facilities this year. The School of Business will be housed in a new $ 1 , 500, 000 building were held groundbreaking ceremonies on October 13, 1987. Union is definitely changing. In 1988 the Lady Bulldogs basketball team achieved an accomplishment that most only dream about — they ad- vanced to the national tourna- ment in Kansas City. The la- dies advanced all the way to the quarterfinals where they lost to the number one team in the nation — Wingate College — by two points. So Union is changing, grow- ing, accomplishing, and 1988 is just the beginning. President Barefoot has even bigger plans for the future. 1988, Oh What a Year! Vo. As the artist sculpts the clay. Union Uni versity sculpts the leaders of tomorrow into mature adults. Union University ' s commitment to its students, and God. help mold tomorrow ' s future. Cano used his great pitching ability to lead the Bulldog baseball team to victory and another great season. I WluitA Yml WUA Yml Union Students Pulling Together And Meeting Challenges The school year was one of overcoming small obstacles, like getting a date for the Sat- urday night basketball game or finding a parking place — sometimes making your own spot or parking in the wrong color zone and praying that the ticket giver would either not notice or have pity on your car. Sometimes we took on big- ger challenges, like trying to convince a professor to change a letter grade from a C to a B. However, as most of us upperclassmen know, this is usually a lost cause. With the ever-present need for cash, some students wrote checks and then tried to beat them back to the bank with tomorrow ' s pay. On occasion it worked, but when it didn ' t a service fee seemed a painful price to pay. Students also faced difficul- ty in scheduling certain class- es. Freshmen were shut out of introductory courses because of high demand and limited sections. Then as they watched, upperclassmen who had experience in the schedul- ing game seemed to get in ev- ery class that they wanted. Don ' t worry, freshmen, al- though this seems unfair now. some day you will learn the tricks too. Moving off campus to find an apartment that had poten- tial — and a reasonable price — proved to be a gamble for the students who were tired of dorm life. The rest of us had to suffer with the common ' s rules as well as trying to get in be- fore curfew. Pulling together and working for a com- mon goal in a team atmosphere is a good way to form any friendship. Just ask any of the Union varsity athletic teams. New Faces Brings A Wave Of Fresh Changes Yoke, as well as many other students, realized the importance of getting in volved. Here she gives a helping hand in the theatre box office. Throughout history, an un- usual species has appeared and made waves in our calm ocean here at Union Universi- ty. This year with little change, the trend continued with an invasion of another record breaking class of Freshmen. What ' s the typical freshman like? LOST? CONFUSED? When upperclassmen were asked what they thought about freshmen, they respond- ed with typical answers such as: naive, young, over- whelmed, and impressionable. They tended to see freshmen as first year students who are generally unsure of them- selves and inexperienced. To them, freshmen can always be spotted because they never know where they are going. They tend to hang around in small groups, afraid to venture out. Freshmen, on the other hand, don t see themselves in the sterotype. Most looked to their first year of college with anticipation. Going to a new school in a new town with a lot of different people was ex- citing for most. Although freshmen do get lost quite a bit. after a few weeks they all get the hang of it. Let ' s not forget — freshmen eventually become sopho- mores. Freshmen were not the only new faces around our campus. Many transfers from such schools as MTSU decided to make our campus their next home. New faces also appeared in our faculty. Improvements were seen in many depart- ments with addition of: Mrs. Andrea Anderson and Dr. Sam Myatt — Business. Mrs. Betty Hughes — Chemistry. Mrs. Jean Marie Walls — Lan- guages. Mrs. Lillian Baggett — English. Dr. John Meadows and Dr. Joe Blair — Religion, Dr. Wayne Wofford — Biolo- gy. Coach Bob Ward — P.E., and Dr. James Edwards — Vice-President. The excitement at Union, along with its pride, increased with each new face. We would like to welcome each of our new members with a hearty — GOOD LUCK! Even though Duane Murray is on his way to an afternoon class, be still has the ability to smile. Most Union students learn very quickly the importance of those extra hours of study in the library. The Union library is well equipped to assist them in their studies Angie Swisher poses during her art class for both the class and the photographer. I WkaA YmJ Olt WlutA Yml Dr. Edmonson takes time to talk over a test result with senior, kristen Miller. Talk- ing over results and learning from your mistakes is part of the academic progress of a student. Small classes help in the one-on-one attention a student receives. Such is the case in most of Union ' s foreign language classes. Dr. Jayne teaches the im- portance of being bilingual and the cultures of for- eign countries. Teaching Not The Only Job Of Faculty Being a small college with an enrollment of under two thousand may be a disadvan- tage for some schools, but not Union. Union University has many advantages to dispell any misgivings about size. One of which is the student-faculty ratio of 15 to I. With a small number of stu- dents, teachers have more of an opportunity to give person- al attention to each student. Very often teachers encourage students to come by their of- fice if they have any problems with schoolwork or if they just want to talk. The care for a student ' s well-being is what makes the faculty at Union so special. Taking time to hear stu- dent ' s problem, helping with classes, or even eating lunch with a student. Union ' s faculty cares. This caring has resulted in many friendships forming between students and faculty. As one student put it. " I don ' t look at my advisor as my advi- sor, but as someone I can talk to about anything, not just school. I look at him as a friend. " With this kind of atmo- sphere. Union ' s faculty has a unique opportunity to express the Christian love and concern Union is based upon. Union is very fortunate to have a facul- ty such as this — one which is intelligent, caring, concerned, and. most importantly. Chris- tian. At Union, teachers be- lieve their jobs are to provide an environment where the proper balance of mind and soul can be attained. At Union, you gain the skills needed to compete in your ca- reer field, while absorbing a rich diversity of ideas. And at Union, you can accomplish all this with the support of its firmly-held Christian beliefs. So when you think about it. the unique atmosphere at Union between the faculty and student helps make the learn- ing process so much more re- warding and inviting and Union ' s size a plus and not a negative. Faculty member Sbjron Younger ' s door is always open for her students to talk about their homework or their weekend.

It starts early and ends late and would tire most people not used to college life. The day starts anywhere be- tween 6-7 am with a rude alarm clock. After a few swipes at the snooze button, it ' s off to the shower in hopes of hot water. After showering, dressing, and getting that just- right look, it ' s time for break- fast in the Union University cafeteria around 7:30. After a delectable breakfast, it ' s time for that eight o ' clock class. It ' s hard to stay awake, but the old college try is given. After another class at nine o ' clock, chapel begins at 10:00. After chapel some students may be lucky to have a break. This time may be spent check- ing the empty mailbox, visiting the student activity center, getting last minute studying in at the library, or catching an early lunch. The afternoon is usually a little busier. The students who have class at eleven or twelve, may drop by the snack bar for lunch. The studious students will be found back in class or in the library. Many students have jobs on and off-campus, while some students take it easy with a game of golf ten- nis, or Softball. The nightlife at Union may leave a little to be desired, but besides studying there are some things to do — ranging from catching a movie on " bargain night " , talking with friends in the commons, to vis- iting the activity center or par- ticipating in intramural events. The Union student ' s night will probably end around one or two in the morning when he finally makes it back to his own room. Making the most of twenty-four hours. Union stu- dents keep on the go while making the grade. Lisa Campbell takes a visit to the library as home- work dictates research. Union ' s high academic standards require students to spend a consider- able lime in the library. On WkOlA Yml f . The Old Spaghetti Store, one of Union stu- dent ' s favorite restaurant, is located in the Casey Jones Village. The restaurant spe- cializes in spaghetti, lasagne, and chicken. The Old Country Store is one of Jackson ' s top tourist attractions. The store includes restaurant, ice cream parlor, and country store. The atmosphere of the " old days " make the store so special. B HICKOBJ J MmAWOoT I 1 Jackson, TN Is Growing And Changing Alongside Union t Jackson. TN — home of Union University is a small city of 50,000 people, nestled in central West Tennessee. And like Union, it ' s growing, changing, and meeting the needs of its citizens. The past few years have meant great change for Jack- son. Everywhere you look, construction abounds as the Jackson landscape revolves into a completely new city. Just in the past year several new restaurants, hotels, busi- ness buildings, and apartment complexes have been built. And Jackson seems to be mov- ing to the north toward Union. What will this mean for the University? Will it be just a matter of time before Union will be back in the same pre- dicament it was in just over ten years ago on the old cam- pus? And with the expansion in size came some very important changes in civic law in Jack- son. Two well publicized law changes were passed during the past year. The first law change was one that was well publicized and involved many emotions here at Union. The law passed in Jackson was " li- quor by the drink. " This was a contest that local churches fought. But after the law was passed many new restaurants and night spots sprung up adding to the ever-changing Jackson skyline. The other law that brings change to Jackson is the re- zoning of Jackson s voting dis- trict. How this affects Union, time will only tell. The law was passed to give fair representa- tions to minorities. As Jackson ' s population grows, the need for whole- some entertainment also grows. The introduction of the United Artist movie theatre was just the ticket. Movie prices immediately went down, much to the delight of college students all across Jackson. So Jackson is changing and growing just like Union Uni- versity, and with these changes come a few bumps along the road. But if the two work together the bumps will be smoothed out. Union Uni- versity and Jackson pulling to- gether can ' t lose. Suhwjy. located behind The Pier restaurant, is one of Union student ' s favorite late night snack places. Subway serves specialty sandwiches of all types. 6, t UrA Yml The Art Of Registering For Class, Line By Line Advising l step in tht tani II is their advii progress. ' student on what class to take is the first • registering process and the most impor- the advisor ' s responsibility to make sure ee is on the right track for the academic The ritual of registering for class begins with the meeting with one ' s advisor. Deciding what class to take can be the easiest and quickest part of the process, because next comes the waiting in lines. The first line one encoun- ters is the line for the comput- er center. It is necessary to get in this line early if you are worried about not getting into a much needed class. Once you have arrived in the center more tension and anxiety await. Each student cringes as the much dreaded beep from the computer sounds and the inevitable words, " Sorry, this class is closed. " This bad news could mean a delay of hours. The next stop is the line for the business office. This could be the most painful line of all. because this line takes your money — and a lot of it! The wait could be for hours, but the more experienced register- ees will put this line off till late afternoon and wait for about thirty minutes. The business office line has two parts. The first part is where the students sign financial aid forms for scholarships, grants and loans. After you have signed your life away (about ten times), then you go to part two. Part two of the business line consists of a small wait, then the actual act of paying tu- ition. This is the part that real- ly hurts, especially when you write the word " thousand " on your check. After this trauma, you need a rest. Maybe you can run by the snack bar to recuperate. The next wait in line is in the student lounge. Here the student gets his new I.D.. parking permit, and his picture taken for the yearbook. The new I.D. and yearbook pic- tures are optional and many weary registerees choose to bypass these. By this time the challenge of registering is over. It ' s been a long day. but much has been accomplished. And just think, you don ' t have to do it again for another four months. Ok h idtrA YmJ The dreaded " beep " catches this student, as it does many. The " beep " could cause a large delay and a headache before its through with the student. Experienced registerees will beat the " beep " with alternative classes to choose from. Faying the tuition is painful but i sary. The rising cost of tuition hits Union just like other schools, but that doesn t seem to help relieve any of the agony. Getting your picture made for the year- book is optional, but those who choose to bypass this step need to re- alize they will not appear in the year- book and need not complain. Union Breaks Ground On New School Of Business Dr. Howard Newell. Pean of Professional Studies, had the honor of turning the first spade of dirt at the groundbreaking ceremonies for the new School of Business in October The atmosphere was antici- pative Tuesday morning, Oc- tober 13. 1987. as faculty, stu- dents, and honored guests gathered on the site of the new School of Business, where the groundbreaking ceremony for the long-awaited construc- tion took place. Dr. Hyran E. Barefoot presided over the 9:00 a.m. event that symbol- ized an important step in the future of Union University and highlighted the week ' s special inaugural activities. Efforts have been underway since December 1985 to es- tablish a School of Business Administration at Union Uni- versity. At that time. Vice- President Barefoot identified to President Craig the need for this new facility. It was ap- proved, a building location was determined, and tentative floor plans were drawn during the spring of 1986. Soon thereafter, efforts were acti- vated to secure the estimated $5,000,000 needed to under- write the cost of the project. Donated monies will pay for the building, furnishings and equipment, endowment for scholarships, endowed chairs, and professorships. The major donors will lend their names to the building, to the School of Business Administration, and to the endowed chairs and professorships. A gradu- ate program is also being con- sidered. Construction did not offi- cially begin until early spring 1 988. with the occupancy pro- jected for next fall. The build- ing houses business faculty of- fices, five large classrooms, a reception area and a unique facility that will accommodate the Jackson area business community. Outside business- es will be able to use the des- ignated portion of the new building for a variety of meet- ings, conferences, seminars and special training sessions. Ms. Sharon Younger, has been named the director for busi- ness and economic service. Market research will also be launched from the College of Business in the following months to link Union ' s new annex and the business com- munity. yOk WluitA Ymi Layout of the new School of Business Administration serves as a symbol of Union ' s continual dedication to academic excellence and growth. Ok WluJtA Yml Hyran E. Barefoot Inaugurated As Fourteenth President After a week of festive events. Dr. Hyran E. Barefoot was inaugurated as the four- teenth president of Union Uni- versity on Friday. October 16. at 10:00 am in the G.M. Sav- age Memorial Chapel. The In- augural Address was present- ed by Dr. Penrose St. Amant. senior professor of church his- tory at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The In- vestiture of the new president was conducted by Mr. John Drinnon. chairman of the Union Board of Trustees. Union s -month search for a presiden t came to an end on February 27. 1987. when the Board of Trustees an- nounced they had chosen Dr. Hyran E. Barefoot. A native of Mississippi. Dr. Barefoot has been associated with Union for over 30 years. His respon- sibilities have included teach- ing, chairing two departments and one division, serving as Academic Dean. Vice-Presi- dent of Academic Affairs and Interim President. Barefoot re- ceived a B.A. from Mississippi College in 1949. a B.D. from New Orleans Baptist Theologi- cal Seminary in 1952, and a Th.D. from New Orleans Bap- tist Theological Seminary. He has done post-graduate study at the University of New Mexi- co in Albuquerque, the Uni- versity of St. Andrews in St. Andrews. Scotland, and the Baptist Theological Seminary in Ruschlikon, Switzerland. Dr. Barefoot is listed in the Dictionary of International Bi- ography, and Marquis Who ' s Who in the South and the Southwest, the Outs tanding Personalities of the South, the Outstanding Educators of America, the Directory of American Scholars, the Inter- national Scholar ' s Directory and the American Biographi- cal Institute. President Barefoot has adopted as his motto for Union " A Reaffirmation: Com- mitment to Faith and Learn- ing. " This motto embodies his belief that the Administration, faculty, and students of Union University strive for academic excellence based on Christian principles. Hyran E.

In many ways this will be remembered as the year of the woman. She top- pled a religious empire, dam- aged a presidential candi- date ' s political career, and she stood by her boss in a nation- ally televised hearing. In world news the United States and the Soviet Union signed an histor- ic treaty eliminating interme- diate and short-range missiles. In sports, the America ' s Cup came back home to the United States. Other major events in the United States included the 200th anniversary of the Con- stitution, the search for a Su- preme Court justice, the papal visit, the Golden Gate Bridge ' s 50th birthday celebration, the Presidential Campaign, Jim and Tammy Bakker, and Baby Jessica. The world witnessed the Persian Gulf conflict, Ko- rean demonstrations and elec- tions, Haitan riots, and a pri- vate plane, flown by a man named Mattias Rust, land in Red square! In the entertainment world. The Cosby Show was still number one followed by its spin-off, A Different World starring Lisa Bonet. A growing number of yuppie-oriented shows headed by Thirty Something and A Year in the Life caught audience ' s atten- tion. The music industry saw a mix of old and new. Michael Jackson came out with his long-awaited album Bad. Whitney Houston followed her debut successfully with Whitney. New faces included Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, The Breakfast Club, and Jody Wat- ley. And in a sad note we said goodbye to some familiar faces: Fred Astaire, Henry Ford II, Jackie Gleason, Rita Hayworth, John Houston, Danny Kaye, Liberace, Lee Marvin, Robert Preston.

Nuclear Arms Control Agreement In early December, the world fo- cused its attention on Washington as the two super powers met for an important summit, and signed a treaty eliminating intermediate and short-range missiles. Never before had the word " elimination " ap- peared in any treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union. The very title of the document is a mouthful — Treaty Between the United States of America and the Soviet Socialist Republics on the Elimination of Their Intermediate- Range and Shorter-Range Missiles. But what did this treaty accom- plish? Just what did it eliminate? The United States gave up 108 Per- shing lis with one warhead each, 64 cruise missiles with four war- heads each, 72 Pershing lA war- heads atop Western German mis- siles, for a total of 436 warheads removed. The Soviet Union re- moved 441 SS-20s with three war- heads each, 112 SS-4s with one warhead each, 120 SS-l2 22s with one warhead each. 20 SS-23s with one warhead each, for a total 1,575 warheads removed. In removing the warhead, the su- ' per powers have reduced a huge i point of tension between them that has lasted since the Carter admin- istration. But now that the treaty is signed, and in effect, how do we know the other side will uphold its part of the deal? Precautions have been made by having meetings between officials of the two countries which started in January. But even with these precautions no one can pre- dict what the future holds in the nuclear arms race. All we can do is sit, wait, and pray. President Reagan talks with So- viet leader Mikhail Gorbachev during arrival ceremonies at the White House. The two super power leaders held a three- Jay summit meeting in December and signed a nuclear arms con Irol agreement. Politics Looking For Justice With two strikes against him. President Reagan decided to play it safe: he nominated An- thony Kennedy, a so-called mod- erate conservative, to fill the va- cancy created by Justice Lewis Powell ' s resignation last July. The lukewarm reception Kenne- dy met in some right-wing circles came in part from lingering dis- appointment over the Bork de- feat. Judge Bork was one of the few conservative legal scholars who became a crossover hit with conservative activists. In the cur- rent environment, where intelli- gence is a politcal liability, it ' s not surprising that Reagan s new choice was less known and gen- erated less enthusiasm. As a lower-court judge, Kennedy had been bound by Supreme Court precedent. So, of course, was Judge Bork, but. unlike Bork ' s. Kennedy ' s opinions breathed no hint of hostility toward decisions involving local authority on is- sues like crime, education, and, of course, abortion. A few PRO-LIFE groups were also hot and bothered by the fact that Kennedy did not express disapproval in the life issue. American Life League had an- nounced it would mount a cam- paign against the nomination. However, the consensus among pro-lifers appears to be that Ken- nedy is a much better choice than the others. Although Ken- nedy had been tagged a moder- ate, his nomination was pushed by many strong conservatives in the legal community. Maybe this is a good sign for our country! Mrs. Reagan Recovers From Surgery On October 17. 1987. First Lady Nancy Reagan learned the tu- mor in her left breast, discovered on October 5. was malignant. Through a biopsy, cells were taken from the area suspected to be cancerous. Examina- tion of these cells re- vealed that cancer was present. Fulfilling her pre-stated wishes, doc- tors at Bethesda Naval Hospital performed surgery and removed the breast that same day. In an effort to keep the Persian Gulf open to naviga- tion, the United States began in July to escort vessels to protect them from Iran. In September the U.S. Navy blew up an Iranian ship that was placing mines in the Gulf. Several mines were confiscated. U.S. Navy Makes Presence Known During October for the first time in the Persian Gulf, Iranian and American gunners aimed their weapons at each other and pulled the triggers. Iranian speedboats, which fired first, missed an unarmed U.S. Army observation helicopter. Two U.S. gunship choppers reacted sink- ing one of the attacking boats and setting two others on fire. Although hardly a major clash, the exchange in the gulf plum- meted the hostilities even closer toward a real but undeclared state of limited war. This climaxed a series of bluffs and threats from Iranian naval forces in the wake of the seizure of the Iran Ajr, which was dis- abled by U.S. helicopters as it was laying mines. Previously ev- eryone thought that Iran would not dare to attack American ships. Now it appears that we were headed for a confrontation. The U.S. retaliation and the Iranian strike abruptly changed the profile of the gulf confronta- tion. Suddenly it looked less like a protective operation, in which U.S. warships would quietly go about keeping American-flagged Kuwaiti oil tankers out of harm ' s way, and more like a direct face- off between the two nations. This situation could easily have got- ten out of control. Our govern- ment stated that it did not seek any further confrontation with Iran, but we would meet any mil- itary actions with stronger coun- termeasures. President Reagan stated it more bluntly. " We ' re not going to have a war with Iran. They ' re not that stupid. " But. how far must we go to have peace in our world? Is it too far? National News Pope Visits United States Stockmarket Crash Of 1987 For nearly five years the stock market had made dra- matic gains, setting records for miraculous increases. It was termed as being a very " bullish " market. Thousands of people were making tons of money. The market topped at over 2700 points, the highest mark reached ever! October 19. 1987, put a halt to all of the merry money mak- ing. An event took place that will surely be remembered and talked about for many years to come. The New York Stock Ex- change made the greatest de- cline in history. Falling nearly 200 points more than the crash of 1929. the market fell 508 points. What did the crash mean to the economy? If government played its cards right, it could be beneficial. Many people now bought securities, trea- sury bonds, and mutual funds. No longer were people looking for a high risk, get-rich-quick stock. They wanted low risk, long-term investments. The re- cession that followed the 1929 crash need not happen again. If everyone starts talking re- cession, and the public reacts as if a recession is coming, then one will occur. Govern- ment must be careful not to lead the public to believe a re- cession is coming. Now is the time when government must be strong. Although it seems that the bear is running freely throughout the market, many investment firms forsee a strong economy to continue. Expected lower interest rates, and increases in government spending will help settle the shaky market. The bull will be back! Everyone knew that Pope John Paul ll ' s sec- ond visit to the United States was not going to be easy. A growing problem between the American Catholics was the major reason for this visit. Once re- garded as among the most committed fol- lowers, many American Catholics today feel they have the right to choose the elements of their faith and ignore those they disagree with. Major disagree- ments ranged from abortion to women priests. The Pope met this challenge by not scold- ing his followers with harsh words, but rather by offering blessings and warm homilies. He also chose to follow the advice of American bishops by avoiding confrontational speeches. In the six years since Americans first heard of a mysterious immunity-robbing disease from which no one recovers. AIDS has killed nearly 25.000 Americans. Millions of dollars have poured into medical re- search and President Reagan has pro- claimed the plague " Public Health Enemy No. . " AIDS: Public Health Enemy No. 1 1987 was only the beginning of a panic over a disease about which little is known and for which there is no known cure. AIDS — acquired immune defi- ciency syndrome — took Ameri- ca by surprise and forced Ameri- cans to seek more knowledge to protect themselves. AIDS statistics are staggering. Only six years after Americans first heard the term " AIDS " , 2 million people have become in- fected with it. The number of deaths which this will lead to is expected to be larger than the death toll of the Vietnam War and to make the Ethiopian fam- ine look like a picnic. The AIDS virus is also compared to the Black Death that killed a fourth of Europe ' s population in the 14th century. The HIV virus is only the first of many viruses that can infect people and lower their immune system. As many as 10 million people are infected with the HIV virus. Predictions include 500.000-3 million new cases be- tween 1986-1991. and by 1991. 50- 100 million people will be in- fected with the HIV virus. It is also predicted that cancer will be recognized as a complication of the HIV infection. Within the next 5 years. 3 million AIDS vic- tims will be dead or dying, and it is possible that America will be devoting 2% of its GNP to care for AIDs patients. 66% of AIDS cases are found in homosexuals. Behind every AIDS patient, there are about 100 hidden sources with the HIV virus. Within 5 years. 2 major shifts in the AIDS virus are predicted: 80% of all AIDS cases will be found outside New York and California, and it will be trans- mitted more and more by hetero- sexual contact. " There is only one way that society will live in peace until a cure or vaccine is found, if ever. That is for each person to decide whether his or her sexual conduct is a danger to the life of another, and then act accordingly. " National News California Scores A 6.1 Garbage Cargo Becomes Joke At 7:42 am. one October morning. California experi- enced an earthquake regis- tering 6.1 on the Richter Scale causing fear in most Southern Californians. Over 100 people were injured and six killed during the earthquake. The quake shattered windows, snapped power lines, broke gas mains, and ignited fires. Centered between Whittier and Pasadena, the earth- quake was just thirty miles from the San Andreas Fault. Eight blocks of Whittier s business district were closed after falling bricks damaged cars and eight buildings were destroyed. The quake, although damaging, was rather minor compared to the 8. 1 quake in Mexico City in 1985. and the 1906 San Francisco ca- tastrophe that measured 8.3 on the Richter scale. Still, the October quake was the worst since 1971 in South- ern California, when the San Fernando Valley was shak- en by a 6.6 quake that left 64 people dead. This quake showed the people of Cali- fornia that they are far from ready for a major earth- quake along the San An- dreas Fault. The barge Mabro 4000 began its fateful journey from a New York City port on March 22. 1987 bound for Jones County. North Carolina. The barge was filled with a very unique cargo of New York ' s finest . . . garbage. But little did the crew know just how long and unusual this trip would be. After being turned away from the original port in North Carolina, Mabro 4000 tried sev- eral other ports. The barge quickly became national news. The barge filled with 3. 128 tons of garbage became a national joke and a symbol of the na- tion ' s worsening prob- lem with solid waste management. The barge, while looking for a place to dump its cargo, was banned by six states and three for- eign countries before an incinerator finally reduced it to ash. a Television evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker said farewell to the PTL ministry in March. Jim Bakker resigned after confessing to a sexual encounter with a young woman. Tammy Bakker bowed out of the broadcasts to undergo treat- ment for drug dependency. Scandal Forces Bakkers From PTL Is money everything? Well, apparently for Jim and Tammy Bakker it was! Their famous tele- vision ministry. PTL, whose let- ters stand for either Praise the Lord or Pass the Loot, was a booming success. Then, on one fateful day. a church secretary by the name of Jessica Hahn brought an end to the profits. Hahn informed the press of an affair with Jim Bakker and of a payment of $265,000 from min- istry money to keep quiet. On the basis of these charges, the gov- ernment decided to inves tigate the financial practices of the PTL ministry. The impending investigation turned up enough wrong-doing that the Bakkers were forced to step down. Charges of misuse of funds were brought against them and much evidence showed their extravagent spending, with the air-conditioned dog house being the most publicized piece. In a Nightline episode with Ted Koppel. Bakker lashed out and branded Falwell a thief by accusing him of stealing the min- istry from them. Bakker stated that the whole situation was a conspiracy and that Falwell lied to him by suggesting that Jimmy Swaggert was trying to over- throw them and become the new head of PTL. The predicament got even more complex when Falwell claimed that Bakker asked him to take over because Bakker felt that Falwell was ca- pable and trustworthy. Who knows what really occurred be- tween the two. and who was at fault. Since the die-down of the scandal, Jim and Tammy planned a new ministry of their own. Time will tell whether this bird ever gets off the ground or just lays another egg. The prob- lem stated simply is this: millions of people believed Jim and Tammy were sincere people for Christ, but in reality, they were, although dressed in sheepskin, truly wolves at heart. Scandals Marine Ll Col. Oliver L. North, was a key official in the plan lo finance anii-government rebels in Nicara gua with money from arms sales to Iran. In testimony before the Iran Contra hearings in Washington, North became somewhat of a celebrity. Hart, Rice Irati ' Contra Hearings When Oliver North faced his congressional inquisitors at the iran-contra hearings last July, he saw the enemy and let them have it. No. he was not sorry for deceiving Congress about his role in funneling cash from the Iran arms sales to the Nicaraguan contras. And no. he was not going to let Congress heap all the blame on the executive branch — not when Congress had forced the administration to aid the contras in any way it could. He lectured, he preached, he admonished, he joked, and his blue eyes spar- kled and his voice cracked with conviction. He was the All-American Boy with a gap- toothed grin worthy of Huck Finn who beat long-haired House Chief Counsel John Nields at his own pugnacious game. The shadowy North was replaced by an irresistible new character: Ollie. Then, as the nation began to think twice, infatuation gave way to misgivings. Was North really the " national hero " President Reagan had pro- claimed him to be? In recent months, with the likelihood that North will be indicted, Ollie has drawn back into the narrow orbit of his family, church, and a desk job at Marine Corps Headquar- ters. But. the grin is un- changed. It endures as a sym- bol of the recklessness that produced the political scandal of the decade. Scandal Damages Campaign Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart was forced to drop his bid for the presidency after it was reported that he was roman- tically involved with Donna Rice, a 29-year-old aspiring actress and model from Mi- ami. He dared the press to " put a tail on me. " and then flew Rice to Washington. We received a lesson in post-modern manners when he claimed that " the woman in question " had been a vir- tual stranger who " dropped into my lap " on that Carib- bean cruise. " chose not to dump her off and the pic- ture was taken. " All that was hard enough to believe and now the very man who clouded the 1 988 campaign with questions of character tried unsuccessfully to stage a comeback by reentering the presidential race. Kirby Puckett and Jeff Raerdon of the Minnesota Twins celebrate their World Series victory over the St. Louis Cardi- nals. The Twins won the seventh and final game of the series 4-2. A Salute To The Champions!!! Champions come in all shapes and sizes. They come from differ- ent walks of life. But they all car- ry one similar trait. They have an uncanny desire to win! They strive for excellence! They never give- up! Who would have ever guessed that the Minnesota Twins would even make the play- offs, much less win the World Series. The Twins haven ' t won a World Series in forever! This was to be their year, though. With a young and exciting manager, they played well above their ex- pectancies, and defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games. Minneapolis went crazy for their hometown Twins. Homer Han- kies waved continuously. The Twins had brought the champi- onship home to the twin cities. The NBA named a new cham- pion in 1987. The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Boston Celt- ics in the best-of-seven series. It seems almost like tradition for these two franchises of World Champions. Magic Johnson pulled more than rabbits from his hat in claiming the MVP award. What happened to the Bird Man? Well, it seems with parts of his flock hampered with injuries, the Bird Man couldn ' t soar. The Washington Redskins won the annual blowout game called the Super Bowl. The Redskins de- feated the Denver Broncos 42- 10 in what will be remembered as the game that records fell. This was the second straight Super Bowl defeat for the Broncos. Among the records that fell was the most points scored in a sin- gle quarter with 35 points in the second quarter. The Super Bowl has in recent years failed to live up to its hype. The average spread between the teams in more than two touchdowns and this year ' s game will increase that. Many suggestions have been made that could possibly help this situation. The most popular of these is to shorten the time between the final playoff game and the Super Bowl from two weeks to one, so the teams can stay in their weekly routines. These are the champions for IBS 7. but by the time this year- book reaches you, I988 ' s cham- pions will begin to take form. The challenge for excellence continues. sports Strike Proves To Be Failure The 1987 NFL Football season came to an abrupt halt in the third week of the season. The players decided to strike because of issues such as pension plans and starting sala- ries. The strike, however, did not go the way the players thought it would. Instead of falling into the players ' demands, man- agement replaced them with " scabs " . These scabs played for three weeks while showing the players that the season would go on without them. The 24-day strike by the NFL players ended in mid-October when the union capitulated and went to court instead of trying to fight the club owners at the bargaining table. A J4-iLiy athke by the NFL pl.iyer ended in mid- October when the union c.ipiluhled and went lo court instead of trying to fight the club owners at the bargaining table. Dennis Conner, the man who lost the America ' s Cup in I9S}. won it back four years later, the Stars and Stripes completed a 4 sweep over Australia ' s Kook- aburra III in the race that took place in Australia. The Cup Comes Back Home!! What does the only man to ever lose the America ' s Cup do? He goes out and wins it back! Dennis Conner, who lost the cup to Australia in 1983. took his Stars and Stripes to Fremantle. Western Australia and defeated the Kookaburra in four straight races. Although Stars and Stripes had its prob- lems early on. her crew never gave up. In the finals, the Stars and Stripes never even looked back. She led in every turn of every race, and won each by at least one whole min- ute. Now the cup is home again. Where will the 1990 defense be held? Some people hope for the coast off of San Diego, where the cup resides. Conner said the deci- sion will be left up to a committee that con- tains the yacht ' s de- signers. But no matter where the next races are held, hopefully America ' s Cup is home to stay! Chart k ' e Oh what a year in mu- sic it was! Old and new faces packed the charts with songs that kept us dancing and singing along all year long. It was a year that heavy metal made itself heard and seen with such artists as Bon Jovi. Billy Idol, Mot- ley Crue. and Stryper. Old songs were reworked and made it big. " Lean on Me " . " Stand by Me " , and " Mony Mony " are fust a few examples. We saw a mixture of old and new faces this year. Michael Jackson re- leased his much awaited album. Bad. along the way, he grabbed one American Music Award and three Grammy nomi- nations. Whitney Hous- ton proved she could beat the sophomore Jinx by re- leasing her second album Whitney. The song " I Want to Dance With Someone (Who Loves Me) " finished as the number one song for the entire year. Madonna dis- played her talents by re- leasing two albums and placing four songs on the year end top 100 chart. But strangely enough, she was overlooked for a Grammy nomination. Big names this year in coun- try music include Randy Travis, Reba Mclntire, George Strait, The Judds, and Dolly Parton. Billy Joel made an his- toric trip to the Soviet Union. In this day of trea- ties and somewhat im- proving relations between the U.S. and Soviet Union, this three performance tour by Billy Joel gave Russians a chance to see an example of America ' s best music. Tina Turner and Sting set a record by performing in front of 180,000 people in Brazil — more than the pope when he made an appear- ance in Brazil. The top groups of the year included U2, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. U2 ' s album. The Joshua Tree, hit it big on college campuses all over the country. The controver- sial band was awarded for Music Toppers the excellent work on this album with four Grammy nominations, more than any other band. Bon Jovi made it true that heavy metal had really made it today by winning the fa- vorite pop rock group award at the American Music Awards. The Grammys. however, have not come around to their type of music, as not one single heavy metal group or song received a nomi- nation. New faces this year in- cluded Debbie Gibson, who became the youngest female vocalist to have a number one single on the charts with " Shake Your Love. " Tiffany, the Break- fast Club. Jody Watley. and Terence Trent D ' Ar- by. Movie soundtracks also made a big impres- sion on the charts this year. Such movies as La- Bamba, Less than Zero, Beverly Hills Cop II, Who ' s That Girl, Stand By Me, and The Lost Boys all placed at least one song on or near the top of the charts. But it was the soundtrack from the surprise hit. Dirty Dancing, that gave not one. but two top albums this year. The Dirty Danc- ing soundtrack stayed at number one for nine con- secutive weeks. With hits such as " I ' ve Had the Time of My Life, " and " She ' s Like the Wind " . it ' s on its way to becom- ing the top selling movie soundtrack of all time. In review, the top male artists of the year includ- ed Michael Jackson, Sting. Paul Simon. Steve Win wood. Bruce Spring- stein, and Prince. Top fe- male artists were headed by Whitney Houston. Anita Baker. Madonna. Suzanne Vega. Barbara Striesand. and Jody Wat- ley. A very strong year for groups was led by Bon Jovi. U2. Whitesnake. Fleetwood Mac, Bangles, and Expose. 6f Fred Astaire Liberace Every year we see many shooting stars in our universe. However, as with this night life, several of these stars will black out and disappear forever. Many talented and pre- cious people left us this year to go to far better places. They have now joined all of the other configura- tions that human beings stare at. think about, look up to. and ad- mire. Of these stars, some of the brightest, such as Fred Astaire, Li- berace. Jackie Gleason, Lee Mar- vin, John Huston, and Lome Greene, lights dimmed. The most famous traditional dancer of the twentieth century who kept us spellbound with his creativity by showing us new steps that had never been shown before died this year at the age of 88. Fred Astaire will be remembered most for his dancing routines in musicals such as Daddy Longlegs and Holi- day Inn. Although he had many different partners, he is best known for his dancing with Ginger Rogers. His creativity is shown through his choreography and usage of such objects as a coat rack, empty shoes, and fire crackers to bring us into a fantasy world that only he could create. Astaire stated that the legendary film star Rita Hayworth was his fa- vorite dance partner. He felt they were smooth and complimented each other. It seems only fitting that these two great stars would dance out of the limelight and into a more perfect place hand in hand this year. They both will be deeply missed by every individual in the world whose lives they touched. Liberace was the greatest show- man on earth. He gave us the en- lightenment and courage to dream the impossible dream, and proved this by being a poor boy who made good. He was the epitamy of the untouchable recluse. But this soli- tary individual, who was so out of reach from everyone ' s grasp died of a commoner ' s disease. Although his friends tried to cover up his death, this superstar died from a disease that only a few years ago killed another great star Rock Hud- son. Not much is known abou this disease called AIDS but it effects rich and poor, famous and infa- mous, commoners and bluebloods. and leaves destroyed lives and families mourning in its path. Jackie Gleason Memorial One of the greatest comedians of our day. Jackie Gleason. bowed off the stage this year. He carried many memories and much love with him. Gleason was one of the unusual superstars who was talent- ed enough to achieve and influ- ence every aspect of the Hollywood world. He not only acted on the stage but was also a comic, produc- er, and director, for many years. The television viewers of his era related well to Ralph Kramden of the Honeymooners series. Gleason brought this character to life as only he could. He also made rural sheriffs comical through his por- trayal of Smokey in Smokey and the Bandit series. Many movies, honors, and awards were left be- hind when he departed. Through these heirlooms he will be kept alive for many years to come. He had a wonderful life although it was shorter than most. He died at the prime of old age at 71. Jackie Gleason left us with a sentence through Ralph Kramden that de- scribed his presence on this earth. " How sweet it is. " How sweet you were Jackie. Thanks for the memo ries. Other stars that should not be forgotten include: Lee Marvin, who starred in The Dirty Dozen as well as many other action packed mov- ies. He once said, " If I appeal to anybody. I hope it s to the guy who collects the garbage. " He died at the age of 63. John Huston was a very talented actor as we ll as direc- tor. He ' s famous for movie classics such as The Maltese Falcon, and Prizzi ' s Honor. On the subject of retirement be said, " Why does a painter keep on painting? Painters retiring? Nonsense! " John Huston dies at the age of 81. Contempo- rary artist Andy Warhol died at the age of 5S. When asked if his work was art. Warhol said, " Art? That ' s a man ' s name. " Lome Greene, star of Bonanza, left behind the Ponder- osa and faded into the sunset. To all of these special people and others that have not been men- tioned, we of the world would like to express our appreciation for all of your contributions to our lives. Thanks again for the memories!! h ' Ilk c jd pv Lee Marvin John Houston 1 Lome Greene ■ v Ofc i iuir A y Union ' s campus life offers a variety of activities and events for students wtio want to get involved.

There ' s always something happening on Union ' s campus. In the fall the campus events begin with the President ' s Re- ception. This gives the stu- dents a chance to meet Presi- dent Barefoot on a one-to-one basis. The big greek event of the fall semester is the Greek Olympics held on Campus Day. Campus Day is always full of activity as the university entertains prospective high school seniors. Also during the fall semes- ter the annual Homecoming ballgame and week. This year Lane College was Union ' s op- ponent in two exciting games. Alumni visit the campus dur- ing the week to relive their college days. But most will agree that the biggest campus event of the fall has to be All-Sing, the vo- cal competition between groups across the campus. This year Sigma Alpha Epsilon took first place, followed by Lambda Chi Alpha in second, and Chi Omega in third. A spring event that stu- dents, faculty, and families alike enjoy is the annual Miss Union University Pageant. This year we had eleven contes- tants to participate, represent- ing campus organizations. Each lady did a fine job and all deserve a hand. During the year at one of the SGA meetings, each class nominated twenty outstanding individuals to be Union ' s Campus Favorites. This repu- table honor recognizes the in- dividuals leadership ability and overall personality. • Each year the student body chooses a lady and a gentle- man who have extraordinary leadership qualities to be se- lected Mr. and Mrs. Union. To be selected is a distinct honor. All through the year, the SAC and SGA have offered many campus events. Ranging from concerts by contempo- rary Christian groups such as Clad and Truth. SAC also sponsors many tournaments and game nights. So as you can see. Union ' s campus is always full of life and activity. To find some- thing to do, one only has to look. keeping the crowd involved in a basketball game is the job of the cheerleaders. Adrienne Feltus lends her enthusiasm to the job. Getting To Know Pres. Barefoot For any person in author- ity to be effective he must form a bond with those he will serve. The communica- tion gap must be bridged and a harmonious relation- ship achieved. For the Presi- dent of Union University that process begins with the President ' s Reception. At the beginning of every fall semester a reception is given outside of the Coburn Dining Room. The reception is used as a time for the stu- dents to greet their Presi- dent. Incoming freshmen are given the opportunity to meet Dr. Barefoot and share a cup of punch. Returning students firmly greet Dr. Barefoot and exchange best wishes for the upcoming year. Through this friendly atmosphere the communi- cation barrier quickly disap- pears, a strong relationship between the President and students forms, and the stage for a successful year is set. The reception is enjoyed by all who attend. By the end of the evening everyone can call Dr. Barefoot their friend. speakers Distinguished Speakers Visit Union During the course of the year. Union welcomes many distinguished guests and speakers. Each Fall Union is proud to sponsor the Staley lectures. This year, we were honored to hear Dr. R. Lof- ten Hudson. Dr. Hudson is the founder and director of the Hudson Christian Coun- seling Center in Omaha, Ne- braska. At the annual spring C.H. Jones Memorial lecture se- ries, our guest lecturer was Dr. Frank Stagg. Dr. Stagg is Emeritus Professor of New Testament at the Southern Baptist Theological Semi- nary in Louisville, KY. The outstanding Kelly Green used his past experi- ences to relate and guide students of today ' s society. Union also had the op- portunity to host many well- known Christian musical groups. Three contemporary Christian gospel groups. " Glad " . " Harbor " , and " Truth " , entertained the students and faculty this year. Staley lecturer Dr. R. Loften Hudson, founder and director of Hudson Christian Counseling Center of Omaha. Nebraska. I Miss Union University Pageant Eleven Talented Coeds Vie For Crown Being asked to represent an organization in the Miss Union Pageant is a great honor for those girls who are brave and have enough stamina to partici- pate in the long hours of practice and preparation. This year, elev- en young coeds took the chal- lenge laid before them and met it face to face. After finding the right combi- nation of accessories, the Miss Union Pageant was important to the girls. The eleven contestants came from all areas of Union ' s cam- pus. They included: Lisa Marie Cozart, a 19-year-old sophomore from Memphis, who represented Women ' s Housing. For her talent she performed " I Made It Through the Rain. " Catherine Peal, a 19-year-old freshman from Alamo represented Phi Al- pha Theta. Catherine performed " Since I Fell for You. " Jennifer Lynette Smith, a 20-year-old jun- ior from Guys. TN. Jennifer rep- resented Sigma Alpha lota. She performed a piano piece entitled " The Revolutionary Ftude. Opus 10. No. 12 " by Chopin. Tisha Ce- less Brewer a 19-year-old junior from Collinwood represented Zeta Tau Alpha. She played and sang " I Found Someone. " Sheila Robbins a 22-year-old senior from Ripley represented the Rut- ledge History Club. For her tal- ent she performed a dramatic skit entitled " Martha. " Melinda Beth Moore, a 22-year-old sen- ior from Dexter, Missouri, repre- sented Lambda Chi Alpha. She performed a medley of " Some- thing ' s Coming " and " Some- where.

The Miss Union Pag- eant went smooth as al- ways, but nobody realized the hours of hard work that went into the sets, lights, and sound for the pageant. If the props would have fell apart, if the lights would have flickered, or if the mc ' s mic would have cut off then everyone would have recog- nized the mistakes. An old saying is " if no one com- plains, the crew has done a good job. " Did you hear anyone complaining? Weeks of preparation are needed to stage a produc- tion such as the Miss Union Pageant. Scaffolds are con- structed to support the lights. Platforms are set up for the spot lights. The set- ting for the stage must be designed and built. Sound check after sound check must be performed to assure the finest quality possible. All of this and more goes into an excellent show. What kinds of people compose the crews that are in charge of production? They come from the science department, the business department, and from com- munications, but they all possess one quality that is needed for these jobs. They all have a sense of dedica- tion to give of their very best to assure a memorable show for all in attendance. These people come together the w eek of pageant to fi- nalize their efforts. They forego their studies to spend countless hours in the chapel. Long afternoons and longer nights make for an unforgettable Miss Union Pageant. Student Publication ' s Wendy Pirtle performs " Maybe This Time " for her talent portion of competition. Jennifer Smith finishes her piano per- formance of " The Revolutionary Etude Opus 10. No. 12. " Sheila Robbins performs a dramatic selection entitled " Martha " . Sheila went on to be named Miss Conge- niality, a most honored award he- cause the contestants vote for the winner themselves. Many contestants feel swimsuit competition is the hardest part of the pageant. Here Leslie lid well, demonstrate the poise and grace necessary for this portion of competition. Catherine Peel displays the confidence necessary for the evening gown competition. Catherine rep- resented Phi Alpha Theta. Eleven Contestants Vie For Crown The tension of pageant day began early Saturday. Each contestant was scheduled to meet with the judges for the dreaded interview. After the interview, each lady was given a few hours to relax before the final countdown. The chapel was filled, the lights were off. and the orchestra began to play when our Master of Cere- monies, Tom Prestigiacomo presented the contestants. While wearing their interview attire, each contestant re- vealed the organization they were representing. Next the la- dies hurriedly went back to the dressing room to change into their evening gowns. This competition is the most glam- orous event of the night. Each lady gracefully presented her gown to the audience and judges. The next competitive event was the talent portion of the pageant. Each contestant displayed a unique talent ranging from vocal and dra- matic presentations to piano performance. This competition is the most favored by the au- dience. The final event of pageant was the swimsuit competition. The ladies elegantly breezed across the stage and then down the runway. Once again the ladies left the stage, but only to return a few moments later in evening gowns for the awards ceremony. All the hard work and preparation was now over and had paid off. I Caryn Dement Crowned As The New Miss Union University March 19 became a magical night for one young lady as Master of Ceremonies. Tom Presti- giacomo. announced the winners of the 1988 Miss Union University Pageant. Caryn Dement a 19-year- old freshman from Jack- son. TN had charmed and performed her way to the crown. Interestingly enough. Caryn is the third freshman in a row to win the title of Miss Union University. Although a beauty queen. Caryn is more than a pretty face. She is a talented lady whose beauty is more than skin deep. For her talent, Caryn performed a con- temporary piano piece entitled " Rumba " ! She has been playing the pi- ano for thirteen years and when asked why she chose this particular piece she spoke of her love for contemporary music and how she want- ed to get the audience motivated. Caryn has al- ways enjoyed being in pageants because of the competition, and entered many while in high school. Caryn began working with her coaches immedi- ately after the Miss Union pageant in preparation for the Miss Tennessee Pageant. Taking judges advice and keeping up with current events, she began her preparations. Miss Dement is an ele- mentary education major and chose to come Union because it is a private Christian school much like her high school. Old Hickory Academy. Car- yn ' s hobbies include pi- ano, tennis, snow and wa- ter skiing, swimming, and horseback riding. Even though she plans to keep the same piece of music, swimsuit. and dress for the next step, there is still a long, tough, road ahead of her and we wish her the best of luck. Caryn Dement, Miss Union University 1988, is definitely more than just a pretty face. Congratula- tions Caryn on a job well done. Miss Caryn Dement, a 19-year-old freshman from Jackson.

" Pilgrim ' s Progress Kicks Off Season Each year the theatre draws the student body, fac- ulty, and community to- gether to the cultural event of acting. This year Pilgrim was chosen for one of their fall productions. Pilgrim is based on the novel Pilgrim ' s Progress by John Bunyun. Pilgrim is an allegory which has only seven cast mem- bers, but they play over 30 different roles. The first pro- duction was scheduled for November 12. 14, 16, and 1 7 with special dinner the- atres on November 20 and 21. Also this year, the A.D. Players kicked off the Ly- ceum ' s spring program. The five-day performance of John His Story began on Friday, February 5. The A.D. Players consist of only 4 ac- tors which use only a mini- mum of props and different costumes. The A.D. Players created over 25 various characters from the gospel of John. One reason for the success of the A.D. Players is the simplicity of language and the portraying of the book of John in the style of the SO ' s. A.0. Players entertained students for the Spring Lyceum program during the 5-day presentation entitled John: His Story. in the opening of Pilgrim.

All Sing 1987 First place winner: Sigma Alpha Epsilon Second place winner: Lambda Chi Alpha All-Sing 1987 And The Winn ere Is . . . SAE All-Sing is a time when various groups join together to present their talents. Each group must perform both a sacred and secular piece. This year seven groups competed for the coveted title of All-Sing Champions. The night ' s program started off with the ladies of Chi Omega. Chi Omega was the 1986 defending champions. This year the ladies sang a selection from Mary Poppins enti- tled " Chim-Chim Cheree. " " The Maj- esty and Glory of Your Name " was the title of their sacred song. Angel costumes and puffy clouds were used to set the mood. However, the ladies of Chi Omega were unsuccessful in defending the title, but they graceful- ly accepted 3rd place. The men of Lambda Chi Alpha per- formed " Singin ' in the Rain. " They chose to wear raincoats and hold um- brellas. They decorated the stage with lamp posts to recreate the fam- ous Gene Kelly movie scene. Their sacred song was entitled " He Holds the Keys. " Lambda Chi Alpha proudly walked away with 2nd place for the second year in a row. The men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon sang a medley of " Mame What I did for Love Hello Dolly! " for their secu- lar piece of music. They chose to wear tuxedos with red bow ties and cum- berbuns for this fun spirited combina- tion. SAE opened their production with their sacred piece of " Be Ye Glad! " For many in the audience, it was the highlight of the evening. With the combination of emotion and humor, Sigma Alpha Epsilon walked away with the first place trophy. Third place winner: Chi Omega Alpha Tau Omega Baptist Student Union Women ' s Housing Zeta Tau Alpha Although not receiving any awards, the four other organizations that entered the All-Sing competition did a fine job nonetheless. Alpha Tau Omega had the honor of performing last. They performed " Five- Foot Two, Eyes of Blue, " and " Jesus Never Fails. " Al- pha Tau Omega was direct- ed by Robby Owens. The Baptist Student Union joined the field of competi- tion with " It Don ' t Mean A Thing, " and " I Come to this Hallowed Hour. " They were under the direction of Tammy Lang. The ladies of Women ' s Housing were un- successful in recapturing the title they lost last year to Chi Omega. They performed " Let Us Entertain You, " and " Holy Ground. " The ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha gave an- other beautiful perfor- mance. This year they per- formed " Calvary ' s Love " and " One " from A Chorus Line. Zeta Tau Alpha was di- rected by Amy Peavler. All organizations should be commended for their fine jobs and help in making the 1987 All Sing presentation a huge success. All competing groups joined together for the final production of " Sing to the Lord " directed by Tommy Rowell. Caria Moore, of Women ' s Housing, lends her voice for their special rendition of " Let us Enter- tain You. " Alpha Tau Omega performs the inspiring " Je- sus Never Fails.

Miss Jane Ann Sage! " Jane Ann was the overwhelming choice of the student body. As one student put it. " To know Jane Ann is to love her. " Her outgoing personality and con- cern for her fellow students was more than enough to qualify her for the title of Homecoming Queen. Miss April Champagne, our 1986 Homecoming Queen, presented Jane Ann with the crown. April was escorted by Trent Bullock, our SGA presi- dent. Mr. Reed Walton had the pleasure of escorting our new Homecoming Queen. Jane Ann is a senior from Union City. TN pursuing a ma- jor in Management Marketing and a minor in psychology. She is an active Chi Omega and is a Sigma Alpha Epsilon little sister. She is currently the senior class President, and serves in many other campus organizations. Nothing less would be ex- pected from a queen and we would like to express congrat- ulations to ours — Miss Jane Ann Sage. Union Scores Two Wins At Homecoming The Union University basket- ball teams once again proved their dominance in the annual Homecoming classic. This year ' s opponent was crosstown rival. Lane College Dragons. This was the second year in a row for the men to play Lane for Homecom- ing, but it was the first time in many years for the ladies. The Lady Bulldogs took the court with an air of confidence, grabbed control, and never looked back. After building up an eleven point halftime lead, the women cruised to a 92-54 victory. The Lady Bulldogs were led by Shea Piercey and Rachal Arnold who scored eighteen and fourteen points respectively. This was the team ' s sixth straight win compared to no losses. By this time it was apparent what kind of season the Lady Bulldogs would have. The men, on the other hand, had all they could handle. After building up a lead, they saw it fade away in the first half At halftime Union was behind Lane 32-35. The second half wit- nessed a see saw battle with the Union Bulldogs squeeking out a 75- 73 win. The men were led by Rick Rudesilis nineteen points and Stevie Howard ' s fourteen. The win evened out the Bull- dog ' s record at six wins and six loses. The Homecoming games are tradition, and they are always exciting. They are what makes Homecoming so special.

I Campus Events Success Of SAC Depends On Students The Student Activities Council sponsors many ac- tivities on the campus of Union University. This council is guided by Danny Patterson and consists of many Union students. Ac- tivities sponsored by SAC include such things as skat- ing, swimming or wallyball. Other events include talent and fashion shows, movies. Truth and Glad concerts, and computer dating at Val- entine ' s Day. Also the Student Activi- ties Council provides many different tournaments for Union students. Some tour- naments consist of golf. wallyball, racquetball, and billards. There are also many activities that permit for intramural points for ei- ther organizations or indi- viduals. Student Activities Coun- cil is a vital part of the col- lege life at Union University. It provides students with a chance for social fun and fellowship with other stu- dents. Much of the success of SAC depends on the sug- gestions of students and their eagerness to partici- pate in such activities. So take time and get involved with SAC. w M Ofc | fcar A VcW During one ' s college years, many students involve them- selves in organizations that relate to a specific interest Union offers organizations ranging from nursing to poli- tics . . . continued (0 ' R-(GANi ' ZAT-I-0-N ' -S Senior.

Union has the club for you. Extracurricular activities are a vital part of any college stu- dent ' s life. It is important to be involved both socially and mentally. Many experts have spoken of the importance of being involved in extracurricu- lar activities and how they shape and mold the individual into a responsible person. If your interested in music. Union is well equipped with organizations for you. Organi- zations include: Phi Mu Alpha, Sigma Alpha lota. Covenant, Proclamation, Chorus, Singers Symphonic and Stage Bands, and Handbells. If you are in- terested in academics depend- ing on your major interest. Union offers. Sigma Zeta, Al- pha Chi, Kappa Mu Epsilon. Phi Sigma lota. Pi Alpha Theta just to name a few. Or if your into politics. Union has SGA. Senate, and the Andrew T. Tip Pre-Legal Society. These are just a few of the many types of clubs Union offers. It is always a major event when a new organization is brought on to a campus. This year Union was honored to welcome Sigma Delta, a pro- fessional fraternity for physi- cal education majors and mi- nors. The fraternity was established by the chapter from Murray State University, on December 4, 1987. Union also welcomed a new group on campus called Peer Counselors. These students help with the College Life at Union (CLU) classes, through- out the fall semester. These students are instrumental in helping freshmen make the transformation from high school to college student smoothly. So as you can see. Union has alot to offer the person who wants to be involved. The only problem a student may have is choosing which orga- nization to join. What ever the decision is, it is bound to make the student happy and fulfilled. Lynn Armstrong. Wendy Murchison. and Eric Mason find time to smile for the camera.

Each group is led by an indi- vidual who has been selected due to their knowledge of their par- ticular field. Baptist Young Women The Baptist Young Women is an auxiliary branch of the Tennesse Women ' s Missionary Union. At Union, the BYW trains its members to be aware of mis- sions, both foreign and at home. The training that these individuals participated in this year consisted of sending missionaries letters and birthday cards, going to the World Missions Conference and hold- ing a spiritual gifts con- ference. They also held a commissioning ser- vice for the SPOTS teams and sponsored a foreign and home mis- sions study. Ministerial A ssocia tion The Ministerial As- sociation is a group composed of young men who strive to ex- pand their education through involvement with men in the minis- try of Christian service. In the past springs the association was brought together for a private observance of the Passover, honoring Christ Jesus and re- creating the closeness shared by our Lord and his disciples at the Last Supper. 5 A C Women ' s Dorm Council Men ' s Dorm Council F C A The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a national organization seeking to promote Christian fellowship among varsity athletes as well as those who lettered in high school athletics. FCA is interdenominational and open to all individuals who would like to participate. They also attempt to help those athletes, who desire to grow in Christian commitment express faith in Christ in athlet- ics, and share their faith by their participa- tion in these activities. By their witness these promising individuals can show others how Christ lives through them. A friendly atten- tive ear that actually hears is sometimes all a person needs to be able to reach their full potential. Sigma Delta is a P.E. and Health Scholastic Honorary Fraternity open for membership by qualified P.E. Majors and minors. To be eligi- ble for membership a person must have a 2.0 overall with a 2.1 in P.E.. with these stan- dards to be raised over the next three years. Sigma Delta was founded at Murray State University to recognize academic excellence in the fields of P.E. and Health. The chapter at Union University was installed December 4. 1987 by a team from Murray State. This new organization, we are certain, will grow quickly if fueled by dedication. An attitude of professionalism will be evident in these leaders of tomorrow. Sigma Delta Senate Freedom of speech is one of the basic rights upon which our United States was founded; it is a necessity to our inalienable human rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happi- ness. Here at Union this proud tradition is carried on through fair representa- tion in the Student Senate. The Senate is the student voice to Union ' s admin- istration. Bills are written according to the needs and desires of the stu- dent body and reviewed carefully; if passed by the Senate, they are taken up for consideration by the adminis- tration. This year ' s Senate has a different personality from those in the past. It is the goal of this Senate to delegate responsibility to a larger number of people, thereby gaining a broader opinion from the student body. The hope of the Senate is to make the student ' s stay at Union as pleasurable as possible. The Student Government Association consists of the or- ganized student body led by elected officers. The SGA in- volves all organizations on campus through the use of the Senate. Its main purpose is to deal with and to bring about change in the school, as well as to provide activities for the student body. The officers are essential in communicating the needs of the student body to the faculty, staff, and ad- ministration, and also plan- ning activities. One day, these leaders on Campus will join other Union graduates as leaders in government, indus- try and religion throughout the country.

Thirty mem- bers are selected for their leadership ability, character and scholarship. New members go through a training program conducted by the Admissions Personnel. They are responsible for conducting tours for prospective students and their families. Each member is also involved in a special telemarketing program. Weekly. Student Foundation members place calls to prospective students to let them know about campus activities, check to see if they need any information and answer any questions they might have about Union University. Members often house prospective students in their rooms when guests visit campus overnight. Student Foundation members serve as a vital link to the surrounding community by speak- ing at local churches and clubs as well as making visits with the admission coun- selors. Their correspondence with alumni is another important contribution of the Student Foundation members. Overall the Student Foundation work to create goodwill through extending Union ' s hand of hospitality. CLU coordinator Dr. Cynthia Jayne goes over revi- sions with peer counselor Tracey Pierce. Peer Counselors Union University initiated its freshmen ori- entation program last fall after seeing the idea tried, tested, and refined at numerous universi- ties and colleges throughout the nation. Its College Life at Union has proven to be a suc- cess, and the academic program will return this fall with changes in its curriculum. College Life at Union is the official orienta- tion program for incoming freshmen. Freshmen attend weekly one-hour classes during the fall semester and receive credit for the course, which is compulsory. The primary focus of the program is to provide a buffer for students who have never attended college. To facilitate the students ' smooth adjustment to all aspects of academia, last year ' s faculty and student peer counselors covered everything from notetaking to social life in their classes. The course material for fall 1988 has been revised, according to CLU coordinator Dr. Cyn- thia Jayne. " Last year was a learning experi- ence for us all. Now we have a better idea of what works and what doesn ' t. " Union will use course material that was comprised by Boston University, a school that has one of the highest GPA percentages in the nation. The University attributes much of its students ' success to its highly productive orientation program. The specifics of the classes, which began in late August were refined during work retreats and meetings held during the summer to insure that all aspects on College Life at Union flowed smoothly in the fall semester.

Pi Kappa Delta The ability to speak clearly and effectively is an important quality to get ahead in today ' s fast-paced world. A very skilled person has a special talent for being able to cover up total igno- rance on a topic with good speech. With over 500 chapters. Pi Kappa Delta is one of the old- est and largest forensic fraterni- ties in existence. Union ' s chapter was chartered in 1985. Members of the Speech and Debate team are eligible for membership in Pi Kappa Delta after competing in three tournaments. This group is sponsored by Mr. David Burke. Sigma Tau Delta is the National En- glish Honor Society. It affords exception- al students an opportunity to develop their skills in creative and critical writing, and to foster a spirit of fellowship. Fall activities included initiation of new members and a special guest lectur- er. Dr. Rusty Mclntyre. a professor of Phi- losophy from Lambuth College. In the spring. Dr. Bentley addressed the group about her trip to England and Ireland. The group also attended Romeo and Juliet. The group is open to all English Journalism majors and minors who meet certain academic criteria. The members seek to uphold their official motto. " Sin- cerity. Truth. Design. " Sigma Tau Delta The Torch is an annual liter- ary magazine which promotes student development in the arts.

Under the guidance of their advisor. Dr. Er- nie Pinson. members review each submitted piece of literature which can be from either a stu- dent or a faculty member. The committee is chosen on the basis of sensitivity, interest, and knowledge concerning the field of humanities. The Torch If you have visited Union Universi- ty ' s art gallery you have probably seen some of the work of members of the Kappa Pi art fraternity. Art is a very effective form of communication which allows us to take a different look at things around us. The purpose of Kappa Pi. an honor- ary art fraternity, is to raise the stan- dards of productive artistic work among the students and to furnish high reward for making a conscien- tious effort in furthering the best in- terest of art. Membership is open to students with twelve hours of art with an aver- age of B or above. Kappa Pi Yearbook Staff (Left to Right) Jerome Teel. Mary Todd Matlock. Kelly Troutt. Kerry Rial.

Layouts are drawn, checked and changed, pictures taken (and retaken), pictures cropped, copy written, pages checked and dou- ble-checked, sent to the plant, sent back as proofs, then sent back again with corrections, and then after all this is done 224 times does it come back to you as a yearbook. This year the yearbook has gone through many changes. Of course, this is the first Fall yearbook Union has ever had. This enables the staff to better cov- er the year ' s events. Such things as the Lady Bulldogs trip to Kansas City and graduation would not have been cov- ered otherwise. Also there have been many changes in layout design. Larger pictures and less overlapping was incor- porated throughout the yearbook to give a major college yearbook feel. Working on the yearbook, takes long hours of work and dedication. Each staff member is expected to do his or her own part. Capturing the year ' s mo- ments and memories is a monumentous task. It isn ' t easy but it is rewarding. Lest We Forget The Cardinal and Cream, Union University ' s official stu- dent newspaper since I BOS. un- derwent many changes during the past year. Designed to give the " journalist of tomorrow " valuable experience, the produc- tion of the student publication, with the exception of printing, is handled completely by students. This includes reporting, writing, typesetting, photography, and layout. Another important transition was the look of the newspaper. It now sports a new masthead de- signed by Advisor Bob (Front Row. I. to r.) Susan Watt. Editor; Lynn Armstrong. Associate Editor: Carrie Rostol- Ian. (Second Row I. to r.) Robert Thompson. Eric Mason. Kerry Rial. Eric Jackson. Missy McBride. Kecia Grant. Wendy Murchison. Shuttleworth and Editor Susan Watt. The content has expanded to cover areas of interest to the entire student body such as sports, book and movie reviews, organizational news, student and faculty features, crossword puzzles, editorial cartoons, and the " forum " which provides an opportunity for both faculty and students to give their opinions on a variety of pressing and sometimes controversial issues. This year ' s staff also put forth extra effort to increase the pro- duction rate of the paper. The staff attempted to produce a pa- per bimonthly during the fall and spring semesters. However, ob- stacles with the new desk-top publishing system sometimes created delays. It is published by the Commu- nications Department and at- tempts to inspire students through personal involvement. The newspaper covers all cam- pus news in addition to some lo- cal and national features. It strives to accurately portray the campus through the printed me- dia and helps students to keep up with important events. Cardinal And Cream Alpha Chi Alpha Chi is a National College scholar- ship honor society founded in Texas in 1922. whose membership is composed of the top ten percent of the junior and sen- ior classes. The object of Alpha Chi is the promotion and recognition of Scholarship and of those elements of character which make it effective among students. The name " Alpha Chi: is composed of the initial letters of the Greek words meaning " Truth " and " Character " . Knowledge, the basis of truth and charac- ter, is symbolized by gold and candlelight and is reflected in the society ' s motto-. " Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free " (John 8:32). These are just a few of the things that the students who were initiated on Febru- ary 24, 1988 discovered about Alpha Chi. These members include: Lynn Deshea Armstrong, Richard A. Bradford Jr., Bren- da Gail Dowd Briley, Julie Michelle Cham- bers. Richard Lee Chapman, Toni Renee Foote, Judy Lynchard Harrell, Jennifer Lorraine Hicks, Tammy June Lang, David A. Lewis.

Another special event that occurred at this time was the initiation of Dr. Louise Bentley as an honorary member of the Al- pha Chi chapter. Dr. Bentley has served as an Alpha Chi sponsor for the past five years. The members of Alpha Chi was graduat- ed this year were distinguished during the graduation ceremony by the gold tassel cords they were wearing. This is the only society on campus allowed to wear this type of a recognition during the ceremony. Pi Gamma Mu Pi Gamma Mu is an international so- cial science honor society whose pur- pose is in studying the social sciences. It aims to reward inter- est and achievement in this study by the conferring of mem- bership upon those who have thus dis- tinguished them- selves. Pi Gamma Mu endeavors to inspire in its members social service to humanity, and life interest in the study of human association. m Honors Truth, wisdom and ethics are attributes the members of Hon- ors Student Associa- tion strive to obtain. Through life experi- ences and knowl- edge. HSA members can acquire these qualities. They ac- complish this task by attending confer- ences, studying liter- ature, enjoying the arts, conversing with others and traveling to new places. As our world daily becomes more complicated, the law pro- fession must change and grow to meet our needs and to protect our rights. The Andrew T. " Tip " Taylor Pre-legal society was formed to give interested stu- dents a view of the various op- portunities opening up within the law profession, a glance into what they might expect at law school, and a good idea of what kind of preparation they need on the under-graduate level. Mem- bership is open to history majors and minors, and anyone with sincere interest in the field of law. Pre-Legal Society STEA The Student Tennessee Education As- sociation is a pre-profressional organi- zation that is influencing the future of education. They ' re tomorrow ' s teachers and are concerned about their profes- sion today. They speak out on issues such as class size maximums, student teacher rights, and the National Teach- ers ' Examination (NTE). STEA is an affil- iate of Tennessee Education Associa- tion. The chapter at Union University is an active member of campus organizations. On Campus Day a large cardboard repli- ca of a little red schoolhouse was com- plete with desk and books. STEA gives a tea every Christmas for the faculty and staff of Union along with area educa- tors. This year on Teacher Appreciation Day. every full-time faculty member found a bright yellow bag hanging on his door with lots of small office sup- plies and a large, shiny red apple. Phi Alpha Theta Phi Alpha Theta is an honor- ary history fraternity for majors and minors. Membership is open to students who have completed twelve credit hours in history field and have a 3.1 average or above. The Delta Psi chapter at Union was the first chapter es- tablished in the state of Tennes- see. Members of this organiza- tion are dedicated to academic excellence as well as the protec- tion of historic data. Another purpose is to encourage students to participate in the history de- partment. Each year, this depart- ment, along with another organi- zation, travels to an historic site to experience the feeling of his- tory for themselves. They say that history repeats itself. This fact as well as many of the faults and achievements of people of the past, present, and future, are of inter- est to those who study history as the members of the Rutledge History Club. This club has been a part of Union University since 1929. The Rut- ledge Honorary History Club offers membership by invitation to a select number who have a grade point aver- age of at least 2.5 in the field of histo- ry. The main goals of the club are to strengthen knowlege of politics and contemporary events, to study ca- reers in history fields, and to learn more about our society in general. During the year members take trips to historical sites and listen to special speakers. Rutledge History Club Phi Sigma lota is one of the many honor societies found on Union ' s campus. It acknowl- edges the students ' outstanding abilities and achievements in the study of foreign languages, liter- atures, and cultures. The foreign language society was established on Union ' s campus in 1980. The qualifications for membership into this honor society are to have at least a 3.0 overall aver- age, to have completed at least one foreign language course at the third level and to rank in the highest thirty-five percent of their class in general scholar- ship. Phi Sigma Iota Linguae Mundi is a club for anyone and everyone who wants to learn about different cultures. This year they have used the resources in our own school to learn about just a few cultures. Dr. Clyde Tilley presented a slide show on his trip to Russia and the officers cooked Russian meals so the group could get a first hand idea of what Russian culture is like, and Monica Powers spoke to the group about Thailand. Then to honor St. Patrick ' s Day. Dr. Louise Bentley pre- sented her slide show of her trip to Ireland and the sponsor for the group, Mrs. Jean Marie Walls, baked an Irish cake. All in all the club has been very busy this year. Linguae Mundi Computer Club The Computer Club is a club for students interested in com- puters. The club has been very active this past year with its fa- vorite spot to have meetings be- ing at Village Inn. Even though it is a party, the club gets more work done than you might ex- pect. For instance, the project for this year is to get a questionnaire written and sent to all computer science majors and minors who have graduated to find out just how much they learned is used after graduation. It is to help the professors as well as the students learn from qualified profession- als. To further interest in the study of mathematics and to promote aware- ness of its benefits to society are two of the main reasons the national hon- orary mathematics society Kappa Mu Epsilon was established. The Tennes- see Gamma chapter at Union Univer- sity was established in 1965. It is sponsored by Mr. Dwyane Jennings and Mr. Don Richard. To become a member of this chap- ter one must have completed at least three math courses with one being Calculus I, have at least a 3.0 grade point average in mathematics, and be in the top thirty-five percent of his class.

In previous years they have won the chapter of the year award from the National Organization and this year were proud to host the Na- tional Convention on our campus. Sigma Zeta ' s other activities in- clude monthly organizational meetings, monthly field trips, mov- ie nights, and fellowships with the science and mathematics faculty. The membership and goals set by Sigma Zeta helps the members to achieve its motto of, " seek dili- gently together for truth. " Sigma Zeta will continue to put their best foot forward in the future. Business Club Students hoping to break into to- day ' s business world find them- selves in the Union University Busi- ness Club. The purpose of the club is to better equip the business stu- dent for his planned career. Mem- bership is open to students main- taining an overall average of at least a 2.0. This year with much group participation, the business club ex- perienced many unusual sites on their plant tours. These students with enormous dreams of being business executives of tomorrow at- tain more information at each meet- ing. Maybe one of these days we will see a Union graduate running a large corporation or who knows maybe even our country. Student Nursing Association Miss America Kaye Lani Rae Rafke. a nurse herself, awards the Tennessee Student Nurse of the Year award to Union s Cath- erine Carroll. NSNA. the largest independent stu- dent organization in the country and the only one for nursing students was organized at Union in February 1986. Those eligible for membership are students in any state-approved program preparing for registered nurse licensure or a registered nurse in a program lead- ing to a baccalaureate in nursing. Also eligible are students enrolled in a pre- nursing program leading to a degree in nursing. The purpose of UUSNA is to assume responsibility for contributing to nurs- ing education in order to provide for the highest quality health care. Lampligh ters Lamplighters is an or- ganization composed of students in the Associate Degree Program of Nurs- ing. It provides an oppor- tunity for members to come together in a social atmosphere for fellow- ship. Members elected for office engage in self-gov- erning matters, in plan- ning and organizing so- cial and community activities, and in encour- aging responsible group action toward desired ex- tra-curricular goals. In May, the annual capping ceremony was given by the first year members in honor of the second year members. Maybe one day when you are hurting and in desperate need of help you will see one of these smiling faces come to your rescue and put you on the road to recovery. Sigma Alpha lota, which was founded at Ann Arbor. Michigan, in 1903, has been function- ing on this campus for twenty-eight years. This organization, whose mot- to is " Life is short but art is long, " is an honor mu- sic fraternity. Sigma Al- pha lota is the largest and oldest music fraternity for women.

I960. The aims of the frater- nity are to advance the cause of music in Amer i- ca, to foster the mutual welfare and brotherhood of students of music, to develop the truest frater- nal spirits among its members, and to encour- age loyalty to the Alma Mater. Phi Mu Alpha is very active on campus and this year sponsored the cam- pus All-Sing competition and took part in numer- ous other activities while allowing students to in- crease their own musical skills. The requirements of a music major call for long hours of practice. Phi Mu Alpha, the professional music fraternity, gives fellow members a chance to interact and grow along with their talent. Phi Mu Alpha ■i ■ f-i|. zj; ::S£,3; ' : ' % 3»- •fit m Union University Chorus The Music Department of Union University offers a number of opportunities for the musically talent- ed. Among these oppor- tunities are the vocal groups which are selected by audition and promote the University and music itself while performing at many school functions. However, open to any student, the Union Uni- versity Chorus performs two major works every year, one each semester. Chorus provides an op- portunity for any student who is interested to take part in classical and reli- gious choral music. Solos were performed by music professors and local guest soloists. Dr. Joseph Blass directed our university ' s chorus along with Scott Bennett who accompanied on the organ. Union University Singers The Union University Singers are the main tour- ing musical group on campus. Gaining mem- bership by audition only, the Singers practice all year for their annual spring tour, which has in- cluded such places as Washington. D.C.. Ha- waii. Canada, Florida, and as of last year. New York. They promote Union, the music depart- ment, and the Christian commitment behind it. Singers also perform in various chapel services and special occasions. This entertaining choir is open through audition to any student who is devot- ed to developing and us- ing his or her musical tal- ent. They are under the leadership of Dr. Kenneth Hartley. With the poten- tial they have, they should be just as good next year. Stage Band is an instrumental group that plays a variety of music from jazz to contemporary to pop. It is an audition group composed of music majors and minors as well as many other musicians. It is directed by Mr. Charles Huffman who also plays bass on his electric piano. The group performs at most home ballgames. the Miss Union Pag- eant, community organizations, and area high schools. This year they helped bring off a very suc- cessful talent show produced by the Student Activities Council. Stage And Symphonic Band The Symphonic Band members produce a well-rounded sound consisting of brass, percussion, and woodwinds. Together these instru- ments can produce glorious songs in a variety of styles such as marches, symphony arrangements, movie themes, and patriotic bal- lads. These songs can be heard at their bi-annual concerts. They give the school a special treat and make graduation even more special by donating live music to the occa- sion. They communicate the uni- versal language of music. Handbells Imagine one day that you hap- pen to be walking through the music department when all of a sudden you hear bells ringings. Hark! Could it be the man or woman of your dreams? But alas — no one is there. You are crushed! However there is one consolation. That beautiful music you were hearing is not faked or imagined but real. The U.U. handbell choir plays this light- hearted music for many occa- sions. The choir consists of eight members who play three octaves of bells. They perform in the mu- sic department ' s Christmas pro- gram and in chapel. The choir is led by Dr. Kenneth Hartley. ' ' ' H l ■ B SE fj K k Hf . 3S 107 Proclamation Proclamation, one of the most prominant music groups on cam- pus, is composed of specially selected mu- sic majors. They are an auditioned ensemble which performs at vari- ous banquets, church- es, and programs for Union. Under the di- rection of Miss Robin Flood, the group strives to grow individually as Christians and " pro- claim " the word of our Lord to the glory and honor of his name. Through their words and voices we can feel closer and learn how to praise the name of our Lord. They are an ex- cellent example for us to follow and we as a school could learn much from them. Covenant Covenant is one of our established vocal ensembles here at Union University. They act as a public relations group for the school and perform through- out the year at various churches, banquets, and several perfor- mances at our universi- ty. Their main purpose at Union is to serve the Lord through their mu- sic and express their joy at knowing the Lord through the use of their musical talents. They focused quite a bit of attention on an on- campus ministry by singing in chapel and with other functions. This talented group of performers entertain us at every concert they give and leave us think- ing about our Lord.

Greek Olymics 114 Alpha Tau Omega .116 Chi Omega 118 Lamda Chi Alpha .120 Sigma Alpha Epsilon 122 Zeta Tau Alpha 124 Greek Council 126 Introduction . . . . there is a very special bond of brotherhood and sis- terhood. Every greek organization on campus offers opportunities for the growth of the individ- ual and friendships that will last a lifetime. Acceptance into a greek or- ganization comes after a long week called " Rush " . Rush week gives prospective mem- bers a chance to see what greek life is all about and to decide which fraternity or so- rority is best for them. The week consists of various par- ties, such as " skit " and " dis- play " , to the more serious preference party for the soror- ities. The fraternity rush is somewhat simple but it lasts longer, as it lasts two weeks instead of just one. After being accepted into a greek organization, the activi- ties fills the member ' s calen- dar. Whether it be Campus Day, All Sing, this weeks party, or this month ' s philanthropy, the members are always on the run. For those not in a fraternity or sorority, it is hard for them to understand the loyalty and dedication that a member has for their organization. Mem- bers have been accused of buying friends. But those in the know, see it much differ- ently. Here at Union, there is perceived gap between those that are greek and those that are not. Whether there is a gap or not, there needs to be a conscious effort by all to close it. Next year. Union welcomes a new sorority. Kappa Delta. Kappa Delta will raise the number of sororities to three, and equal the number of fra- ternities. The major advantage of a third sorority is the lower- ing of the intense rivalry be- tween Chi Omega and Zeta Tau Alpha. Kappa Delta brings with it a rich history and strong backing from other lo- cal chapters. It will be interest- ing to see how this addition will effect the face of greek life at Union. Leigh McLain of Chi Omega shows her determination and spirit for her sorority. Contest such as the tug-o- war are just a small part of the greek experience. Rob Shelter and Jay Culpepper of Lamda Chi Alpha pull their chariot across the finish line. Lamda Chi made a very strong second place showing in this year ' s Olympics.

Greek Olympics Bring Fun And Excitement Fun and excitement fills the air every year for campus day and the Greek Olympics. High school juniors and seniors come from all over to see our campus up close. They are taken on ex- tensive tours, provided informa- tion on expenses, and hear a concert by one of the top com- temporary groups around. They also get to witness one of the most spectacular events that stems form ancient times — The Greek Olympics. The five greek organizations on campus display their finest members in various catagories. The sororities spring into action with their extensively rehearsed pyramid building competition. Then the all important relay race. Four girls from each sorority pass the baton attempting to out dis- tance the others to the finish line. Also, the women participate in a Softball throw. Participants from each sorority display their techniques and heave a Softball as far as possible. The last and most important contest is the tug-o-war. This often decides the champion for the sororities. This year, the ladies of Chi Omega were victorious. For the men, there are similar contests testing skill and strength. From the javelin throw to the tug-o-war, the competi- tion is fierce. But what makes the men ' s competition unique is the ancient Chariot race. SAF ' s char- iot crossed the finish line first giving them the championship. 2AE ZTA Alpha Tau Omega ' s officers proudly pose ' ■■ " ■■ in front of their chapter house. AT12 " To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable prin- ciples with a bond as strong as right itself and as lasting as humanity . . . " , so begins the creed of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. These words, penned over 100 years ago by Otis Allan Gla- zebrook. continue to inspire ATOs today. The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity was founded on September II, 1865, 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 Febru- ary 28, 1894. Within ATO you find opportunities for self-expression, leadership. life-long brotherhood and genuine recognition of your accomplishments. Intramural sports serve as an important outlet from the pressures of college life. Football, basketball, and Softball are just some of the sports the ATOs look for- ward to participating in each and every year. Taking pride in intramurals — us- ing them as a tool for the growth and development of the chapter — produces life-long lasting friendships. Alpha Tau Omega ' s col- ors are azure and gold with the white tea rose as its flower and the frog as its mascot. Stressing Christ ' s teachings first, brother- hood, and the elevation of man is Alpha Tau Omega ' s goal.

The hdies of Chi Omega were unsuccess- ful in defending their All Sing champion- ship, but were awarded the third place trophy for their effort. Upsilon Chapter of Chi Omega had an extremely busy year. Rush Week was full of various parties in- cluding Panhellenic. Dis- play, Skit, and Preference. Bids went out to forty-two excited Chi-O pledges. These pledges were ex- posed to the fun and frolic of greek life when they at- tended a weekend Pledge Retreat. Active sisters and new pledges took advan- tage of the opportunity to get to know each other. On October 5. Chi Omega sponsored a Crush Party for sought-after bachelors on campus. On Campus Day Chi Omega won the spirit and greek Olympic awards. Later in the month the Chi Omegas donned their dou- ble-knits and bell bottoms and headed for Village Inn for their Nerd Party. Date Party and Eleusinia also oc- curred during October. November brought All- Sing and Third place trophy for the Chi Omegas. The ac- tives and pledges hosted a Scholarship Reception in honor of the faculty and staff. December was full of many end of the year activi- ties. During Homecoming Chi Omega won the spirit award. Three sisters were on the court and Jane Ann Sage was crowned Queen. The chapter celebrated Christmas with a Christmas Reception given by the pledges at the Humboldt Golf and Country Club. The chapter also held a party for Big and Little Sisters. Tracey Pearce lends her voice to t he Chi Omega production during the Annual All-Sing competi- tion.

Lambda Chi Alpha is Union ' s newest fraternity. Lambda Chi Alpha brought with it new ideas to the standard of stereotyped fra- ternity system. One of these ideas is the concept of asso- ciate membership which re- places the old pledgeship system. It also brought with it the idea that brotherhood is achieved not only through social acitivites but through the blending of in- dividual personalities and service to the community and campus. Lambda Chi Alpha bi-an- nually sponsors the largest collegiate blood drive in West Tennessee outside the Memphis area. Lambda Chi also sponsors a faculty re- ception, a sorority recep- tion, a community food drive, and a bi-annual spe- cial Olympics for abused children. Lambda Chi is very proud of its service program and are pleased to be able to " give a little back. " Lambda Chi Alpha ' s col- ors are purple, green, and gold. Their flower is the white rose and their mascot is the mallard duck. The fra- ternity carries an open mot- to of " every man a man " which expresses their con- cern over each individual person and his contribu- tions to society. Lambda Chi Alpha was founded in 1909 at Boston University and has grown to be the nation ' s third largest fraternity in number of members and in number of active chapters. Lambda Chi Alpha made their presence known at the annual Homecoming pep rally- Lambda Chi just sings in the rain during All Sing. Lambda Chi Alpha look the second place trophy.

Excellence is not deter- mined by pride alone, but through achievement. SAE has proven to be a leader among Union ' s Greek orga- nizations and throughout the nation. The chapter has excelled in scholarship, campus involvement, and athletics. The chapter finished first in Greek Olympics, as well as maintaining the title of Intramural Champs for the fourth consecutive year. In the fall SAE captured the first place trophy in the campus-wide All-Sing for their rendition of " Hello Dolly! ' and " Be Ye Glad. " The men of Tennessee Eta represented their fraternity and Union well by support- ing local philanthropies. Among their many efforts, SAE participated in a bike-a- thon to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. They also supplied volunteers for a dunking booth at the West Tennessee State Fair in which the proceeds benefit- ted the Carl Perkins Child Abuse Center. For their out- standing service to local charities, Tennessee Eta was the recipient of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Province Community Service Award. " There is a destiny that makes us brothers, no man stands along. " Sigma Alpha Epsilon is a formalization of a special kind of friendship called brotherhood.

ZTA is presently the third largest sorority in the Pan- hellenic conference and is working toward the goal of creating a more noble wom- anhood. The Beta Omega chapter is made up of very unique individuals. The love of Christ and the desire to see Zeta be the best it can be draws them together in the special bond of sisterhood. This bond is strengthened by many activities. Forty- one new sisters were added as a result of Rush week. Pledges and members com- bine to participate in the many intramural activities, Greek day, parties, and ser- vice opportunities through- out the year. Zeta spirit and sisterhood can be seen in these campus events. " A million tomorrows will all pass away, ere we forget all the joys that we share today. " The friendships and memories of college days will always have a special place in our hearts of Zetas. The Zeta tug-o-war team gives that extra effort during the contest while their sisters cheer them on to victory. Hard work and long practices were used to per- fect the Zeta Tau Alpha pyramid. The Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils are instrumental in the smooth running of Union ' s Greek system. Both councils are com- prised of delegates from each Greek orga- nization. The councils are an outlet for the different groups to communicate impor- tant information to each other in an effi- cient and orderly fash- ion, thereby allowing the fraternities and so- rorities to co-exist in a relatively calm atmosphere. Working together for the welfare of the Greek system and to unify all involved is the Greek Council ' s main objective. Union ' s Greek sys- tem is made up of two sororities and three fra- ternities. They are: Chi Omega, leta Tau Al- pha. Alpha Tau Omega, Lamda Chi Alpha, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Everywhere in between there was always something to cheer about. Steve Simpson and Shea Bramley led the Bull- dog team golf team to a Dis- trict 74 Runner-up spot. Just the year before Jeff Copeland led the team to its first nation- al tournament. The Bulldog basketball team was led by re- turning starters Rick Rudesill, David Barham, and Stevie Howard. The team fell short of its goal for a District 24 Tour- nament birth for the first time in several years. The Bulldogs were in the process of a re- building year under new head coach Bob Ward. The Lady Bulldogs were impressive as they advanced to the NAIA Championships. This accom- plishment was the first for a Union University basketball team. The team was led by four time Ail-American Char- lotte Hart and three-point hot shot Shea Piercey. The Bulldog baseball team fell one game short of advancing to the NAIA Area 5 Tournament. Cano Valez led the Bulldog team in pitching, while Bart Teague, Tim Watson, and Car- son Mclllwain led the defense attack. In tennis, Jessica Na- varro was the top seed in the District 24 Tournament, but was defeated in the finals. In the summer of 1987, the Sig- ma Alpha Epsilon intramural Softball team became national champs. The team won the Sigma Alpha Epsilon World Series in New Orleans, allow- ing only one run. So as you can see. Union has a whole wide variety and selection of champions. One only has to look to see athletic excellence. Many exciting things have happened within Union University ' s sports pro- grams. The name of Union University has spread far and wide because of its athletic teams. Union is very proud of its athletic competitors, and their accomplishments. Union University athletics — Oh What a Year!! Cano Velez. a Pan American Games All-Star, is an ace pitcher for the Bulldog baseball team. He attract- ed plenty attention from pro scouts this season. Lady Bulldogs Ranked in the top five alt season long, the Lady Bull- dogs lived up to their abili- ty. Led by four time Ail- American Charlotte Hart, the Lady Bulldogs swept through the conference undefeated, tied the school record of 21 con- secutive wins, and was the first Union team to ever reach the NAIA Champi- onships in Kansas City. Many milestones were reached and many individ- ual records were set along the way to an outstanding season. Charlotte joined the 1000 point club, set the record for most steals in a career and most steals in a game. She also holds the record for most three point field goals in a game with 6. Catherine Peek tied an existing record by shooting perfectly from the field. The road to success is a long and grueling one. It leads through many trials, but always surfaces in the light. This year the Lady Bulldogs road ended in Kansas City, the site for the NAIA Championships. Re- ceiving the at large bid to the tournament, and backed by hundreds of supporters, the Lady Bull- dogs took their show to the big dance. In the quar- ter-finals the team ran into only the third obstacle they could not overcome. Although leading most of the game, the Lady Bull- dogs could not hold off top-ranked Wingate Col- lege of North Carolina. With the lead, Charlotte Hart plays intense defense.

The Bulldogs were led by returning starters Steve Howard, David Barham. and Rick Rudesill. Stevie was a four year starter for the Bulldogs and was a dominating force on the boards. David was one of the top free throw shooters on the team. Both David and Stevie were seniors. Rick was always a threat from 3-point land. During the 1987 season he was 48% accurate from there. Another senior that was a valuable asset to the Bull- dogs was Jimmie Hunt. Jimmie ran the Bulldog of- fense from the point posi- tion. Like Rick.

David Barham used his sleek wizardry against the Bisons of David Lipscomb. Rick Rudesill blows by a Lane defender during the annual Homecoming game. How often does a freshman step in and start at a four-year college? If you are Marshall Brown it is not too hard. After an outstanding ca- reer at Union City High School he joined the Bulldog squad. Marshall was always impressive, and great things are expected from him in years to come. There are many oth- er Bulldogs who contributed to winning efforts. Although this past season was not one of many fond memories, hopefully next season will be. Bulldog basketball will once again emerge on top. Rick Rudesill. one of the top three point shooters in the league, shoots will above the our-stretched arms of the Bisons defenders. Jimmie Hunt drives thru for this running jumper while James Fields gets rebound position. The Bulldog Defense was always strong. Here Marcus Payne. David Barham. and Marshall Brown are giving this Dragon a hard time. • • BULLDOGS • DATI OPI ONENT (Hm ) SITI NOVEMBEI 6 Fit. Belhel Tournamenl 7 Sal Beihel Tournamenl . . McKenzic.

Here at Union we feel as though we have a mo- nopoly on the game. The Bulldogs are always con- tenders for conference and district championships. This year the team lost in the District 24 finals. The Bulldogs used a combina- tion of long balls, finese. and tenacious defense to reach that far. The Bull- dogs had sound hitting from the likes of Pete Wil- liams and Carson Mc Ill- wain, strong defense from Tim Watson, and Bart Teague, and strong pitch- ing from a host of Bulldogs. The season was the last for Coach Bill Green. He has been at the helm of the Bulldog baseball team for three years. Coach Green was originally from Paico, Kansas. He received an un- dergraduate degree in health and physical educa- tion, and a graduate de- gree in education adminis- tration from the University of North Colorado. His first collegiate coaching job was at Trevecca Nazarene College in Nashville. In 1985 he came to Union. In his first 2 seasons at Union, his teams had a combined record of 56-29. Last year the teams tied with Trevecca for the TCAC championship. Coach Green plans to re- turn to Nashville, but prob- ably not in a coaching position. Coach But Green in his last sea- son at the Bulldog helm, led the team to a District 24 Runner-up position. Front Row, Tom Weiler. Bryan Kidd. Scoll Pilkinglon. J immie Hunt. Dale Blackwelder.

Union has one of the top pitchers to be found anywhere. Cano Velez has been highly regarded as possibly the best pitcher in the league, and per- haps the NAIA. Cano made the All- Pan Am team as he help Puerto Rico to a bronze medal. Also, a strong team needs a person like Pete Wil- liams. Pete was one of the top ho- merun hitters in the league, and he did it while batting in the leadoff position. With players such as Cano, Pete, Bart, Tim, and others, it is no wonder the Bulldogs had such a terrific season. ZL Tim Watson, Bulldog shortstop, moves into position. Tim, along with Bart, made the middle of the infield fierce. Ed Gaynor rushes out to congratulate Steve Decker after another victory- Bulldog third baseman, Tony Garrett, makes a tag on a UTM Pacer Tony did and excellent job at the hot spot down the line. Women ' s Tennis What a year the wom- en ' s tennis team had this year. Victory after victory, Jessica Navarro per- formed exceptional as al- ways, and she had a won- derful group of team- mates. Jessica was the top seed from the west in the District 24 tourna- ment. She compiled a 25- I record losing only in the District finals. She currently is ranked 31 in the NAIA. Union Univer- sity is proud of the many accomplishments of the entire team. We are look- ing forward to another prosperous year from the ladies tennis team.

Spring is full of many out- door activities. Baseball heats up; and golf gets into full swing, but don ' t over- look tennis. Warm, sunny days spent on the tennis court turn into perfection on the day of the match. Back- hands, forehands, and over- head lobs become works of art when spring rolls around. All the team mem- bers tighten their racket strings anticipating a fruitful season. This years team was led by Robert Johnson. Rob- ert was in his third season from South Africa. He was supported by a strong group of under classmen. Expecta- tions were high for this year ' s team, and they reached them. Front row. Hob Shelter. Bo Bankston. Gary Bailey.

Here he shows the importance of good technique. Nothing is more relaxing than a spring afternoon on the golf course. Just ask the guys on Union ' s golf team. They are out quite often practicing ev- ery aspect of their game. The hours of prac- tice have paid off. Union ' s team has performed marvel- ously. They placed high in tournaments that consist of Divi- sion I and II schools. The team tied for sixth at the Delta State Invitational and finished second in the Tennessee In- tercollegiate Golf Tournament. Steve Simpson demonstrates how good form helped him be named to the All-State team. Steve was joined by fellow teammates Jeff Bailey and Shea Brumley on the All-State team. Cheerleaders In any sport the cheerleaders play a very important role. They are active in getting the fans in- volved in the game. They continuously root the players on to victory. Here at Union we have an outstanding group that performs their fob superbly. They travel with the team, work hard during the game, but usually do not receive the ap- preciation they de- serve. Weeks of preparation and ded- ication go into mak- ing a good squad, the Union University Cheerleaders. Front Row: Adrienne Fellus. Shelley Rasbach. Second Row: Sandy Copeland. Steve Steiner.

They span the entire year, from the first football game to the last Softball game. The intramural courts and fields have become a place where all organiza- tions on campus compete to see who is the best. College life at Union would not be the same without the spirit intra- murals bring to the school. Coach Ward has been the di- rector this year, and has done an excellent job. On these pages are Just a few pictures of the excitement of intramurals. h L fi ' - ' -Lir.rr ZTTICV Ofc ]l ll jS Vc Academics is ttie most im- portant part of going to col- lege, after all we are here to get an education. Union aca- demically, as we all know, is very strong.

Presi- dent Barefoot has adopted as his motto for Union ' A Reaf- firmation! Commitment to Faith and Learning. " This mot- to embodies his belief that the administration, faculty, and students of Union University strive for academic excellence based on Christian principles. Along with the commitm ent comes a commitment to the future of Union. Union is growing in every aspect of the campus: In number of stu- dents, in size of academic fa- cilities, and in size of curricu- lum. The groundbreaking and construction of the new school of business is a prime example of the commitment to the future of Union University. No longer will all academic fa- cilities be housed in one build- ing. Union is responding to the needs of the world. Expanding the business school so as to give more detailed attention to the student ' s needs in pre- paring for tomorrow ' s fast- paced business world. Union gives its students the best fa- cilities, tools, and atmosphere to make the most of their stud- ies. In its one hundred and six- ty-five years, the institution has grown from a private academy to a college endowed by state bonds to a university under denominational spon- sorship. The institution has borne four different names and has occupied at least three different campuses. Throughout this varied history Union University has been committed to educational ex- cellence and (since 1874) bearing a significant Christian witness to students, the local community, and the larger community of the world. In class lecture is the most often used method of teaching. Union ' s student to teacher ratio is one of the lowest in the area. This is one reason why faculty and students have such good relations. U UNION unIversity tution of the -ptist Convention Pastor. Scholar. Teacher. Administrator. Hyran Euvene Barefoot has served Union University well since 1957. He has worked alongside three other presidents to mold and shape Union into the school it is to- day. A native of Mantee, Mississippi, Dr. Barefoot was called into the ministry dur- ing his youth and has spent the remainder of his life preparing for that calling and serving God in all aspects of the ministry. Pastoral experience in Louisiana and Mississippi deepened his love for pro- claiming God ' s Word through the local church. Gradually, however, he began to feel God ' s leadership guiding him away from the full-time pastorate and toward helping prepare other young ministers for their calling. In 1957 Dr. Barefoot joined the faculty of Union University as an Asso- ciate Professor of Religion and Greek. Since that time countless lives have been influenced by the caring, scholarly instruction of his educational ministry. Dr. Barefoot has been wisely recognized and honored for his commitment to both rigorous academic standards and devoted religious belief A servant of God at Union University since 1957, Hyran Euvene Barefoot is uniquely suited to lead Union University into the decade of the 1990s. Jacque Bobhil serves as secretary to President Barefoot. Her duties include helping President Barefoot coordi- nate his schedule and assisting him when necessary.

Mr. Larry Stewart, Vice Pres- ident of Development, is in charge of such areas as stu- dent recruitment and public relations for Union, but most importantly handles scholarship support for Union students. As Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Maggie Nell Brewer is responsible for the operation of the Student Affairs Department which has an affect on student life. Some responsibilities include the supervising of activities and organizations, serv- ing as chief judicial officer for student discipline, and working to help coordinate student housing. Dr. John Adams who is the Vice President for Religious Affairs fulfills the planning and pro- gramming of all religious activities at Union Uni- versity. Such activities include chapel services.

Upon being the Vice President for Business Affairs, Mr. R.G. Elliot ' s position fulfills many re- sponsibilities. Some of these responsibilities in- clude handling business accounts of students, supervising the staff per- sonnel, and balancing Union ' s budget for each upcoming year. The position of Vice Presi- dent of Academic Affairs, occupied by Dr. James Ed- wards, also forsees many difficult tasks.

Profile: Dr. Pat Pinson A Dynamic Lady Heading The Fine Art Department Born in the mountains of Vir- ginia, Dr. Pat Pinson is not a typical college professor. She is the Dean of Fine Arts and is con- stantly on the go. Her professional career began at Bluefield Junior College. This is a very special place to her be- cause it is where she met her husband. Dr. Ernie Pinson. Dr. Pat Pinson ' s hobbies consist of handicrafts, arrowhead and rock collecting, reading, pets, and photography. Improving students academi- cally is one of the things she likes best to do. While at Union, she helped start the Honors pro- gram in 1975. Because of her sensitivity toward students ' learning, she has set many goals for her department. For example, she wants to give the school of fine arts an identity and for all three departments (music, art. and theater arts) to join together and act as one while also getting Union to perform Public Rela- tions for the Fine Arts. Unity can be achieved, she feels, through the coordination of activities of each event so everyone will work together. She also would like to have an artist of residence. She feels that the students could learn from an artist through his professional knowledge along with their teachers. Finally, she would like to see the curriculum modified so that there would be a better business relationship in the outside world. To say that this dynamic lady is busy is an understatement. The School of Fine Arts could not be in any better hands, as Dr. Pinson continues to do a great Job. Although busy. Dr. Pat Pinson always has time la help a student grow aca- demically.

Profile: Dr. James Baggett Making Students Think And Better Themselves Is Important. Helping students reach their goals, is the most important part of Dr. Bagget ' s job. Dr. Baggett may be the Asso- ciate Vice-President of Academ- ic Affairs, but that is only one of several positions he holds at Union University. He is also the Dean of Humanities. The human- ities cover the English, History, Political Science, Language, Reli- gion, and Philosophy depart- ments. Dr. Baggett became inter- ested in history while attending high school. Born in Columbus, Georgia, Dr. Baggett went on to attend school in Texas, received his Bachelor Degree at Wesleyn Col- lege, and his graduate degree from North Texas State. He be- gan his teaching career while in Texas by teaching junior high and high school in the Fort Worth area. He believes this ex- perience helps him deal with stu- dents in college today. As for relaxation. Dr. Baggett considers traveling one of his fa- vorite hobbies. He also enjoys reading and writing history. One major goal Dr. Baggett hopes to accomplish in the Hu- manities department is to require more writings from students. He realizes that the major obstacle of this goal is keeping down op- portunity costs while having stu- dents write. He believes that writing is a form of thinking as well as a form of conversation, and that asking students to write makes them think more critical- ly. This writing, he states, will also help them to express what they actually mean rather than what they might say. Making students think and better themselves is important to Dr. Baggett. He says if a student will set individual goals and fo- cus on them, these goals will compel that student toward bet- ter heights and his job will be accomplished. Rel. PhiL Dept. Joseph Blair.

When talking business, the per- son to talk to is Dr. Howard Newell. Dean of Professional Studies. Dr. Newell is from Illinois, where he received his Bachelor and Master of Science degree from Southern Il- linois University. He later received his PhD from Indiana University. Dr. Newell has taught at Union University and Murray State and became interested in the business field through the subject of Ac- counting. Interestingly enough, during high school. Dr. Newell was not an " A " student and almost did not graduate because he says he had no ambition and did nothing academically. He now considers himself a task-oriented person and easily gets consumed in his work. As Dean of Professional Studies, Dr. Newell is head of such depart- ments as education and business. According to Dr. Newell, the busi- ness department has declared four specific goals for the school. First, they would like to have the doors of the new business school open to the students by the fall of 1988. Second, plans for reconstruction of the business curriculum are to be completed. Thirdly, they would like to offer business services to the community of West Tennessee. Fi- nally, a " Leadership Council " is being planned, which would advise the direction of Union ' s business department. Dr. Newell also states that the department has specific goals for the students. He says the goal for students is not only to have a chal- lenging, well-compensated career but also the ability to lead their careers in a way compatible with the Christian values. The major goal of the business department is to educate people to be servants and to serve people as believers in Christ. Helping students prepare their resume is one of the special parts of Dr. How- ard NeweH ' s job. Business Dept. Front row (I to r): Dr. Curtis Scott, Dr. Walt Padel- ford. Dr. Jim Ed- wards.

The man who fits this description is obviously Dr. Bill Bouchillon. Dr. Bouchillon ' s first career step be- gan when he felt God calling him into the ministry. Fifteen years of his minis- try were spent as a Baptist minister and mission worker in the states of Califor- nia and Nevada. He feels his call has been a " developmental call. " He com- ments that after being called into the ministry, he felt he needed psychology for the expertise in the area of counsel- ing. Upon entering the field of psychol- ogy, Dr. Bouchillon received his doctor- al degree from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. As a dean. Dr. Bouchillon has many duties to fulfill. He says that, " As a dean, I encourage faculty to continue improving themselves personally and professionally. " Also he works with the Vice-President of Academic Affairs in setting policies for the department. In dealing with the goals of the de- partment, he says he feels good about where the department is right now and what the future holds. A major concern of his is for the department to develop a psychology laboratory. Also Dr. Bou- chillon would like to continue to see the department prepare students to com- pete successfully in graduate school. Sociology Dept.

Profile: Dr. Regina Saffel Doing Her Best And Then Some As you walk into the office of the Dean of Nursing, you will probably hear music. This is not to mean that you have died and gone to heaven, but that Dr. Re- gina Saffel is in her office trying to do some paper work or some of the million other things she has to do to keep her department going. Even though her duties at Union keep her busy, she does find a few moments for relax- ation. She enjoys classical music, needlework, and visiting her grandchildren in Memphis. She is very active in the Forest Heights Methodist Church in Jackson, where she is a member of the choir. Most of her time, however, has been spent with helping her de- partment ' s self-study. This is be- ing done for reaccreditting the Nursing department and finished in January or February of 1988. Dr. Saffel was born in West Virginia and went to school in a two-room schoolhouse. She de- cided nursing was her calling when she saw her cousins leave home to serve as nurses in World War II. The capes they were wearing appealed to her and in- fluenced her choice in career. Dr. Saffel ' s goal for the nurs- ing department is to focus on re- cruiting potential students be- cause of the nursing shortage nationally. She says that right now recruiting is down and she hopes to improve this in the future. When asked what quote she would leave with students, she stated a very simple but true statement, " Do your best. " That is all anyone can ask of you and that is what Dr. Saffel tries to accomplish here at Union. Guiding her students at Union, Dr. Regina Saffel helps mold the nurses of tomorrow, in- stilling in them her motto, " Do your best. " ASN Front Row (L to R.)

Alot of anxiety accompanies the graduating day with unanswered questions looming ahead. On May 28. 1988, the graduating seniors of Union University traveled through that " Right of Passage " — from college life to the real world, and with this passage came a wide range of feel- ings. Julie Claus, a senior communications major from Paducah, KY, saw the un- certainty that these final days bring and the real world as an adventure and challenge. " The question keeps coming to mind: Do I know enough or can I apply what I do know? On the other hand, there is a cer- tain thrill about the unknown. " Some seniors, however, faced the challenge of grad- uate school, like Jim McAr- thur who plans to attend medical school. " My career goal is to be a physician, the Bachelor ' s Degree is mean- ingful and long sought af- ter, but I know it is only one step in the plan for my life, " says Jim. As a senior looks past graduation and into the days to follow, a cloud of opportunities, excitement, and uncertainties fill his mind because no one knows exactly what the future holds. Over the past four to five years, seniors have worked hard to develop the skills necessary to become successful in the field each has chosen. Even though one feels prepared to face the challenges of tomorrow, a sense of fear is still ever present. Graduation marks the be- ginning of a new chapter in their lives. A chapter that will be full of accomplish- ments, disappointments, tragedies, and celebrations. All seniors look forward to that fateful day, but at the same time, each will always remember his days as an un- dergraduate here at Union. Jane Nichols helps seniors with those seniors evaluation. As the big day approaches, her advice be- comes more important. Fleming Fleming. Lisa, Dyersburg. TN Foote. Renee, Jackson, TN Forderhase, Tim, Jackson, TN Fowler, Lara.

ASN The Late Night Snack 0 Students Want More Than Just A Candy Bar This student is just one of the many Union students that gel the hungries late at night. Her solution, hke many, was a trip lo Subway. We all know the feeling . . . it ' s late at night, that low grumble begins in your stomach, that unyielding need for something to eat, something good, something fast . . . you begin the search for that late night snack! Fortunately, there are a number of places to turn. If pizza is your craving. Domino ' s is a phone call away (and 30 minutes). Union ' s commons are visit- ed several times a night by the Domino ' s pizza man de- livering those mouth-water- ing, extra cheese-covered pizzas. But why is Domino ' s a favorite? Freshman Kurt Steele probably put it best. " You ' re hungry, and you have to study. You don ' t have time to go out. so you just order a pizza and study while you wait. " This con- venience factor is one of the more important factors in choosing that late night snack. But if you want something a little different. Subway is just down the by -pass. Sub- way offers a wide range of sandwiches, from seafood crab to the Subway Club which has ham. turkey, and roast beef Subway gives a different twist to the subma- rine sandwich, and a fun way to take care of the late night hungry. But if a simple hamburger is what you crave, then Krystal ' s is your answer. Many Union students travel to Krystal ' s to purchase one of those small wonders on a regular basis. The drive-thru is open 24 hours a day — so anytime you gotta have a Krystal. you can. Another favorite place of Union students is Mr. Do- nut. Not only can you get your late night snack there, you can stay all night and study as so many students do on exam night. Mr. Do- nut offers a wide variety of light, fluffy donuts and deli- cious hot chocolate. It is lo- cated next to Village Inn Pizza across from Gibson ' s. Along with these three fa- vorite snack choices, there are a number of avenues for Union students to look for that perfect snack. But all Union students seem to agree that convenience is one of the big factors in choosing a late night snack. (But nothing is as important as taste). Callis Callii. Anthony. FR Camp. Mendy.

Even though the gallery is only three years old. and is very ac- cessible to Union students, there is a lot that is not known about the gallery. For instance, how does one get their work dis- played? The Board of Advisors decides on what exhibits best fit Union ' s taste and criteria, and then invites an artist to exhibit his or her work. The Gallery Board is made up of Mr. Parish and five other faculty members who are actively involved in the arts. Director Reid Parish hopes the gallery will broaden students ' horizons and their awareness of what art is and can be, as well as exposing them to some of the more secular aspects of art. He hopes that all students will take the time to drop by and view the exhibits and feels that each will agree that it is time well spent. When referring to the art stu- dents, Mr. Parish sees the gallery as a teaching tool, exposing the college community to various artworks and artists, and allow- ing the city to see their works. Mr. Parish also relayed his own personal goal for the art gallery, " If I can get one or two students to come in and look through any show that is here and just accept it for what it is and not make a snap judgment saying ' Ooh, that ' s weird! ' I ' ll be happy. " _ Bii " ' ' ■ t 1 ] The Union University Art Gallery offers stu- dents a chance to experience art at its finest. The gallery exhibits such things as paintings and sculptures throughout the year. These students use the art gallery as a learn- ing experience, as they visit this exhibit for an experience report for art class. Jones Jones. John. SO Jones. Jonathan. JR Jones. Linda. ASN Jones.

Exactly what is the Guiding Light that makes Our World Turn? Do we all have just One Life to Live? Who really cares about All Your Children? Are you living in Anoth- er World maybe near General Hos- pital or in Santa Barbara? Yes, we are all Young and Restless. Are these really the Days of Our Lives? Soaps . . . are a social statement of the 80 ' s especially at Union Uni- versity. At 12:30 pm everyday a group of dedicated Days fans can be found huddled around the TV in the Women ' s Commons in total si- lence and all eyes afixed on the screen. What is this phenomena? Why all the attention? A dedicated freshman says, " Days of Our Lives is a part of my every day. It gives me a chance to lose myself in something other than books. It ' s an excitement — an adventure in the day. It lets me live a life unknown to my lifestyle. " Unrealistic is what many people think soap operas are. They believe that these shows paint a fake pic- ture of life by showing it as glamor- ous, perfect, and even corrupt. For some unknown reason the bad group never gets caught. Is that very realistic? We also cannot for- get to mention all the suicides, murders, comas, and affairs that go on behind the scenes. Dr. Marlena Evans Brady on Days, for instance, has been shot five times, comatose three times, married twice, kidnapped four times, and thrown off a cliff. How much can one woman take? And what ' s worse is the fact that she is a good guy. Also, why are all of the characters either rich by birth, doc- tors, lawyers, or police? The plots themselves are kind of obvious. If you have watched a soap for a year or two, you can almost predict what is going to happen. Where is the excitement then ? Why do students switch their whole schedule around a certain TV time slot? Maybe it is just the fantasy that compels them to watch it. Maybe it is the hope that some day they will find that perfect love and ride off into the sunset togeth- er. Whatever the reason for this ob- session, it is obvious the soaps are here for good, giving their daily dose of trauma, tragedy, excite- ment, romance, and power. Leigh Anne Arnold takes times during the day to catch her favorite soap in the women ' s commons. ■ The commons were a favorite place for students to catch the soap operas. Commuters, faculty, and staff caught their favorite soap operas in the student lounge. Parish Parish, Kenneth. JR Parish. Sonyn. SO Parker. David, SO Parker. Jr.. Jerry. FR Patrick. Hope.

Kim FR Q The Suitcase Syndrome Mysterious Disease Sweeps Campus There is a strange and unusual disease on the campus of Union University. High fever, an upset stomach, and a headache are not any of the symptoms either. This disease, though virtually non-exis- tent during the week, hits the cam- pus almost every Friday afternoon like a plague and continues till late Sunday night. There are many tech- nical terms for this disease but at Union it is simply known as " The Suitcase Syndrome " ! Why do most Union Students go home almost ev- ery weekend? There are many reasons for stu- dents to go home. For instance, it gives students the opportunity to see their friends, do their laundry, eat good food, and see their fam- ilies (you know, to get money), and most students live within a two hour drive from Union which makes it easier to do. Leaving cam- pus is also an escape. The weekend provides an opportunity for stu- dents to get off campus for more than just a few hours, and since Memphis and Nashville are so close to Jackson, many students travel to these two cities to spend their weekend. Both offer a lot of things to do and both can make you forget about school. Some students, however, don ' t have the luxury of going home ev- ery weekend. These students must therefore stay at school and enter- tain themselves while everyone else is gone. So, if you are forced to say on campus for a weekend, there are a few things to do in Jackson. Never- theless, the weekly migrating of Union ' s campus and out of Jackson continues to occur. Unfortunately, the end is no where in sight, and a cure is being sought by all. But un- til then we will all have to be pa- tient and hope for a vaccine (some- thing to do) to the dreaded disease known as The Suitcase Syndrome. % J- % Moving furniture in and out of the dorms is an extreme case of the Suitcase Syndrome and takes a special kind of help, usually from a friend. Going home on weekends means checking in and out of the dorms, failure to do so means receiv- ing those dreaded warnings. Robinson Robinson, Kina. SO Robinson.

Open dorms give students a chance to see how the " other half " lives. Playing cards is a favorite pasttime for Union stu- dents while relaxing in the commons area. Union dorm life has always been an experience. This life dif- fers greatly from most colleges and universities in several ways ranging from open dorms, to our commons area, and even to per- sonalizing the students ' own pri- vate room. Our commons area has always been a place to meet friends, read the paper, watch television, and mingle. Unfortunately, there seems to be a difference in rule interpretation between the men ' s and women ' s commons. For ex- ample, in past years, the wom- en ' s commons has been a favor- ite place for students to talk and spend time with their boyfriend or girlfriend. Now, however, someone has changed the rules in the women ' s commons and they did not bother to inform the students. No longer are we al- lowed to visit in this commons, or so the men were told in the required dorm meeting at the be- ginning of the Fall semester, and heaven forbid if you hug or even touch a member of the opposite sex — that will get you five warnings fast!! As a result the men ' s commons has become in- creasingly more favorable to stu- dents where if you hug someone of the opposite sex, you get con- gratulated! Then there is always the other subject that is taboo — OPEN DOR 1S! Every time the rebel- lious students speak of this, they are instatnly hushed. Open dorms gives students a chance to see how the other half lives and gain a different perspective of one another. Who knows what may happen to us in the future. Maybe we will catch up with the times but we will probably continue to live in the past. No matter what hap- pens, there is one thing everyone can count on.

Individuat bedrooms help malie this job a little easier Union ' s high academic standards mean taking hard tests. These underclassmen have learned quickly the importance of studying. Ok, WluitA YmJ A Year Of Accomplishment " Oh What a Year! ' This school year has been incredible. Never has Union seen so much change, so much activity, so much accomplishment. As the year comes to a close, we look back with a sense of pride. The year 1988 was full of achieve- ment, both big and small. Throughout the yearbook we captured the big accomplish- ments that everyone knows about. For example, ground- breaking, inauguration of Presi- dent Barefoot, and the Lady Bull- dogs advancing to Kansas City. These accomplishments will al- ways be in our memories. But what about the smaller, individ- ual accomplishments. Like Cath- erine Carroll being named Ten- nessee Student Nurse of the Year, or Mark Ring being accept- ed at Yale. These individual ac- complishments prove that hard work and dedication will bring success. There are. however, even smaller accomplishments, that we sometimes overlook and for- get. Maybe it ' s getting that date with Mr. or Miss Right, or getting an A on that all-important test, or maybe, it ' s making a deadline on the yearbook or newspaper. These accomplishments happen everyday. We shouldn ' t take them for granted, but enjoy them while they last. So when you look back on 1988. don ' t forget those smaller accomplishments, because in their own way, they are just as important as the big ones. Senior Index BAILEY.

Art. Mi- nor English; Kappa Pi; Graves Gold Leaf Cup Award. r if if ■ m m 1 A large crowd filled with parents, rela- tives, and friends attended the graduation exercises. Caps flew into the air as the exercises came to a close. Many had waited for this exact mo- ment to rejoice in their accomplishment. Graduation The Big Day Finally Comes On May 28, 1988, at 6:00pm, it finally ar- rived — GRADUA- TION. The event the seniors had worked for over the past four years finally happened. Some three hundred gradu- ates walked across the stage, received their di- ploma, and moved their tassles, signifying the right of passage for those fortunate few that have accom- plished what all college students dream about and strive for. During the weekend, the seniors participated in a rehearsal and lun- cheon on Friday. On Saturday the Baccalau- reate Service took place. This year ' s speaker was Dr. Ken- neth P. Story. But it was the graduation exer- cises that everyone came to see. At six o ' clock, the exercise began. The traditional procession- al began with Senior class president Jane Ann Sage leading the way with the school banner, followed by the faculty, and finally the graduates. This year Dr. G. Wayne Brown of Belmont College gave the graduation ad- dress. He encouraged the graduates to make a difference in the world and to believe they could change it. After the address, the conferring of de- grees took place. The class was presented to President Barefoot and then the diplomas were presented to each graduate. Immediately follow- ing the conferring of degrees, class presi- dent, Jane Ann Sage, presented the class gift to the university. The class left money for dis- play cases to be placed in the entry hall of the new business building. President Barefoot then awarded the two top awards given to Seniors. The Highest Academic Achieve- ment award went to Melodi Myers who had a perfect 4.0 GPA. The Tigrett Medal for the outstanding graduate went to Jane Ann Sage. As we said goodbye to these people who had come to mean so much to us over the past few years, there was some sadness, but we knew that they were ready for the world and would be prime exam- ples of Union ' s quality graduates.

Rial So the yearbook is finally fin- ished! There were times I didn ' t think it ever would be or that I was going to make it through the year. But now that it is finished, I ' m glad I did it. All those long hours of drawing layouts, writing copy, waiting on pictures have paid off There is so much work that goes into a yearbook, and no one person can do it all. And so now that it is finished, it is time for me to give my thanks that are so much deserved. First. I would like to thank my par- ents for all their support, love, and prayers. — Bob Shuttleworth, for having faith in me to make the right deci- sions and to put together a quality yearbook, and for all those long hours in the darkroom. — Johnny Cole, our Josten ' s Sale Representative, for all of his advice and help. Johnny always had an answer for every question I had. — Teresa Greer, for being the Out- standing Staff Member of the Year- book. Teresa was Campus Life sec- tion editor. She did a great job seeing it from the very beginning to the very end. — Kelly Troutt, for going beyond the call of duty. More than once Kelly was asked to help on a sec- tion that wasn ' t even hers. — Beth Dennis, for taking the hardest section of the yearbook — Organizations. She orchestrated the numerous groups with pictures, retakes, and copy. — Terrie Powers, for all those last minute typing assignments and complaining only occasionally when she could have many times more. — Dana Cox, for all those psychia try sessions over lunch and all her hard work on last year ' s yearbook. And last but certainly not least, to God, for giving me the strength, patience, and determination to see this job through. I would also like to thank all the rest of the staff who worked so hard to make the yearbook possible. I would also like to wish Susan Watt and Laurin Smith, next year ' s editor and assistant editor, the best of luck and know that they will do a great job. In closing, the yearbook staff hopes you enjoy this edition of the Lest We Forget. We hope you find that it captured the major events, and the memories of the 1988 school year.
