While the volumes are not sequential due to lack of printing during the World Wars, the Tel-Buch still remains the major source of historical value for the University. Throughout this time frame students, faculty, and administrators, have seen the growth, and development of the University through the pages of the Tel-Buch. This 75th volume is no exception. The 1987-88 school year will certainly be noted in future volumes as a historical year due to several important additions on the campus. A University dream was finally fulfilled in November as the University acquired the Polsky department store building, thus “spanning the tracks” stretching the University into downtown Akron. Another major development also occurred in November as Buchtel Avenue was closed, traffic re-routed, and plans made to turn the once-busy street into a mall-like area, creating a real campus look for the urban University. Other projects include the grand opening of Ocasek Natatorium, the renovation of Memorial Hall, the addition to the School of Law, the approval of a new Polymer Science building, and the unveiling of nameplates designating the University’s new boundaries. The University of Akron is without a doubt growing; however, development and advancement have traditionally been major goals of the administration. Striving to achieve the best environment, tools, and knowledge is exactly what the University is all about. Members of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority gather at their house to greet rushees during rush week. The main walkway that stretches from Memorial Hall to Auburn Science Center may soon become a thing of the past when Buchtel Mall opens. a blend of tradition and trend Michael Parks Dennis McDaniels Raising Our Standards The University is following the trends of other schools by moving into the big leagues. The push is on for a nationally acclaimed sports program as the University achieved Division I status earlier this year. The University is attracting national attention with games covered on cable television station ESPN, by threatening top ranked teams like the Pitt Panthers, and with the winning tradition for the soccer team. Achieving Division I status is a positive point for Akron by shedding new light on the campus. The advancement is sure to attract more students, fans, and publicity. Besides the push for our sports program, the University’s academic departments are also striving for higher status. The University already has a first-class polymer science program, but the move is on for bigger and better education. Effective in July ’88 the University will establish the world’s first college devoted to polymer science and research. The University has also engaged in an exchange program with British law professors from The Polytechic in Wolverhampton, England bringing a unique educational experience to Akron students. A group of Chinese executives has even traveled to the University to tour the information management lab used to teach office administration. The executives, from Hebei province, came to compare the technology of ours to theirs. Akron has also purchased a great deal of equipment and educational tools to improve the quality of education so the student can gain real “hands-on” experience. Overall, the goals of Akron are on the move to higher standards of learning. a blend of tradition and trend Kevin King and Kelly Battles were named Mr. and Ms. Black United Students at the BUS Ball held in Gardner Student Center.

The Zip’s basketball team made its debut this season at the Richfield Coliseum. The Zips challenged the Pitt Panthers, ranked third in the nation, to a close game, but lost 67- 63. Bob Wilkey Delta Sigma Pi members Dave Shrader and Brian Brumbaugh lead the rest of the business fraternity’s team to victory in the Bed Race Compitition. 6 Opening Fans flocked to the Rubber Bowl for the 34th Annual Acme-Zip game. This year the Zips faced the Golden Flashes of Kent, but lost the contest. Gaining national attention involves not only the administration, but the students also play a large part in the process. Through student organizations, greeks, and faculty cooperation, the struggle to improve campus enthusiasm is growing into an increasing pride in the University. Over 190 student organizations are available to students in professional, departmental, honorary, and social sectors. The Activities Fair, sponsored by the Office of Student Development in September, exposed students to the different organizations and encouraged them to become involved. A student can participate in student body politics with Associated Student Government, play tuba in the 200- piece Marching Band, coordinate events in the University Program Board, or go down the slopes with the Ski-Club. The possibilities are endless. Students are also banding together to bring pride back to the University. The S.P.O.R.T.S. committee sponsored numerous events at the Rubber Bowl, JAR and Lee Jackson field to attract the students to the games to cheer on their favorite Zips. Blood drive competitions were held between Akron and neighboring Kent State LTniversity. The students also banded together in a cohesive group to work on some important issues. The housing issue surfaced this year as students, along with the University, got together to try to tackle the difficulties of poor housing. A student commission was established and housing fairs were held for the students and by the students. The student body participated in the election of officers so they could receive representation on the campus. Students are offered a variety of events to keep them from the hustle and bustle of classes. •I i a blend of traditions and trend Dennis McDaniels An -Akron ’studeilt, " takes sO’ni time- ■ out to-.eateh up on some extra , studying outsider.Gardner ' Studept ; • ■ i ;• ;,: • ' ' Center: : .

Gardner Student Center Concerts were also held in JAR Arena for the first time this past year with shows by Stevie Ray Vaughn, George Thorogood and the Deleware Destroyers.

" Yes, the condition of my house is much better than some of the other houses I’ve seen. It took awhile to find it, but it was worth the time.” -Kelly Kepas sophomore 10 Student Lif With the passage of a new city ordinance, scenes like this should be a thing of the past as landlords must meet strict regulations before leasing units. Unfortunately it took the tragic death of senior Mike Albaugh in May 1987, to garner the attention of the University, city, and student leaders in regards to importance of safeguarding homes. Albaugh died in his third floor room during a kitchen fire. Crack-Down On Campus Housing Off-campus housing targeted for improvements The classic view of a college student is one of a person juggling work a nd school while residing in a ramshackled residence. Along with the apartment or house comes the landlord who, if you’re lucky, is around when needed and not just when rent is due. Sadly this is not a classic, but a stark reality to many students who must daily face living in unsafe conditions. All this ended tragically for UA senior Michael Albaugh on May 14, 1987. He died in his 3rd floor room, a few short days before graduation, when he was unable to escape the smoke and flames that engulfed his home. Michael’s death didn’t simply disappear into a meaningless statistic; it became a motivator to other students living in off campus housing. 1987 became a year of reform in the area of housing. For the first time the university hosted a housing fair for students. The show informed students of their and the renter’s rights. Campus police officer s offered tips on securing and safeguarding their homes. The City Council of Akron approved an inspection plan for student-oriented housing. The $500,000 plan calls and provides for initial inspections, annual reinspections, and the relaxing of zoning laws to encourage development of housing. “I can’t think of anything more important than having our students live in safe housing,” stated an enthusiastic Robert Dubik, associate provost and dean of student services. The new program will consist of a rigid inspection of approximately 1100 housing units. Two inspectors will be assigned from the City Health Dept. The City will foot the bill for the project for the first two years and according to Jerry Egan- a city planner in the D.O.P.U.D.- a self sustaining fee will take over after that. The program hopes to build a stronger relation between landlords and tenants and tear down the stereotypes that tend to plague new programs of this kind. John Cavalier of University Rentals supports the program and thinks any problems will be “minor”. Cavalier controls 135 units and is planning renovations and new constructions in the area. He hopes that the inspections will help both landlords and students. - James A. Piedad Off-Campus Housing 11 " Vf really mouei ourselves after anyone, we have our own style . -Harry Sivec, Pelican ' s guitarist Senior music major and guitarist, Kevin Miller, and part-time bass instructor Jeff Bremer enjoy an impromptu jazz jamming session at Schwanies, a local bar which encourages university musicians. Life 12 Student Strutting their stuff, the Pelicans, Danny Vec (bass guitarist), Jeff Harmon (drums), and Bob Baracz (lead vocals), helped residents of Gallucci Hall get their Halloween weekend rolling with an outdoor classical rock concert. Members of Power Drive, Clyde Hensley (lead guitar), Darren Whitford (bass), Scott Gorczynski (drums), and Dave Zuder (rhythum guitar keyboards) are just one of the Akron bands trying to make it big. y§P r ,i m •- i y m k ft 7-lr . The Circuit Student bands gain local and national attention Appearing with Joan Jett and Michael J. Fox in 1987 summer rock-n-roll movie “The Light of Day,” four University of Akron students felt it would provide the opportunity to promote their band. They were right! Harry Sivec, Bob Baracz, Denny Vec, and Jeff Harmon make up the classic rock new wave band, the Pelicans. “Doing the movie was a lot of fun, even though we didn’t have a major role,” claims Harry Sivec, lead guitarist and a sophomore psychology major, “There was an ad in the paper wanting a local Cleveland based band to do a few scenes in the movie, so Bob sent a demo tape and a group photo, we auditioned, and got the part.” Playing around their hometown of North Ridgeville, the band has the affection of a devoted group of fans. Production of an eight song studio and taking fifth place in a national college band contest, has led to increased air play of the Pelican’s originals on local Akron radio. The classical rock and new wave music style of the Pelicans seems to be a popular combination, but what about some other style of Music? Heavy Metal fans will be pleased to know that not every band has turned Top 40 or New Wave. There are still a few die hard metal heads around. One group of students, known as Power Drive, is making an impression as one of this areas hottest new bands. Members of the band Clyde Hensley, Darren Whitford, Scott Gorczynski, and Dave Zuder can be seen playing at local bars and the Annual Katherine Place bash. Not all bands are of the rock-n- roll persuasion, so for those of you who enjoy a little more mellow music Schwanies has the answer. Every Tuesday night, the pub hosts a jazz jamming session. Students, usually music majors, are given the opportunity to display their talents and practice their craft in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. “This is practically the only local place where jazz musicians, particularly students can come to and play impromptu sessions as we do,” states Jeff Bremer, a bass player and part- time instructor at the University. Other students, like Chris Hanning, are part of the house rhythm section and play on a more permanent basis. Chris is a graduate student finishing his M.A. in education and percussion. UA Bands 13 I think the natatorium is a perfect addition because of the need for a large facility for teaching and serving the students’ recreational needs. -Don Bowles, University Administrator Dean Hunt presides over the ground breaking ceremony for the renovation of the School of Law. Senior, Chip Seifert, and sophomore Thom Krutkiewicz compete in the intramural racquetball tournament. 14 Student Life Olympic-style diving boards and platforms are just one feature of the new Ocasek Natatorium. This is an Artist’s rendering of the building to house the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering. Construction is scheduled to begin in late 1988. M aking room Everyone needs room to grow and so does The University of Akron. New additions being added to the University include a natatorium, a skyscraping polymer science building, and an expansion of the McDowell Law Center. The Ocasak Natatorium, named after retired state senator Oliver Ocasak, was opened January 19. Located next to Spicer Hall on Carroll Street, the new building includes a 50-meter pool, nine racquetball courts, two weight rooms, locker rooms, offices, and one classroom. “We’ve always needed a facility that was larger than the pool in Memorial Hall,” said Donald Bowles, Vice President of Planning. The new pool can be divided into three sections by two moveable bulkheads. to “This allows for three classes to go on at once,” Bowles said. The racquetball courts and pool are free and open to students at specific times. A second addition being added to our campus is a polymer science skyscraper. The construction for the project is stated to begin in late 1989 or 1990. “It’s going to be a world class center,” said Frank Kel ly, director of the Institute of Polymer Science. The skyscraper will be 12 stories high with reflecting glass. “The building’s design will have both the symbolism of its own importance, as well as a 21st century look,” said Kelly. The building will house large laboratories for more advanced research and testing of polymer products. “The entire project should take 18 months to complete from the grow original starting date,” Kelly said. Another area that’s growing is the McDowell Law Center. The center has lacked adequate space for law students for years. The American Bar Association expressed its concern in a letter in July 1987 about the lack of space. Three phases of construction and renovation of the center, to correct the problem, have begun. The first phase will add space to the law library and student study areas. The second phase will he a connection of the law center to West Hall. West Hall will be renovated and assigned to the School of Law. The last phase will be the transfer of the Department of Communicative Disorders to the Polsky’s building in July 1990. - Jennifer King Making Room To Crow 15 ining The Campus UA begins renovation of Buchtel Avenue and the Polskys’ building The acquisition of the Polsky b uilding and the construction of the Buchtel Mall are two developments which are bringing major changes to the University in the next few years. The Polsky building, a former department store, was acquired in November as a gift from the Prudential Insurance Company of America. University and Prudential officials announced the gift and transferrred the property’s title during a reception held Thursday, Nov. 5, 1987, in the Polsky building to which some 600 campus, community, and business leaders were invited. “Spanning the tracks”—the term popularly used to describe the University’s expansion across the railroad tracks running between the existing campus and the downtown retail and office area—has been a primary goal of the University. In addition to continuing education, which will be given 47,000 square feet, other academic units planned for relocation to the Polsky building include urban studies, business technology and public service technology. Also being considered are some administrative departments such as the registrar, financial aids, and other services now housed in Spicer Hall, purchasing, human resources, a satellite computer lab, and a satellite bookstore. The second development, the Buchtel Mall is described by Braun and Steidl Architects, Inc., project designer, as a parklike pedestrian area with sufficient open space for emergency and service vehicle access. The mall will replace the closed section of Buchtel Avenue that runs through the center of the University. Construction and landscaping on Scheduled for completeion in the fall of of 1989, the Buchtel Mall will make a true campus for the University of Akron. the five-acre site, slated to begin in June 1988, will be in two phases. The first involves the area beginning near Spicer Street west to the intersection of Brown Union Streets and from there west to Sumner Street. The estimated cost for this phase is $800,000. The second phase to begin in summer 1989 and be completed the following, fall, will involve improvements in the area from Sumner Street to Grant Street, including work on Sumner, Center, and College Streets. Those three streets will end at the mall in cul-de-sacs designed for passenger drop-off and pick-up. The cost of this phase is estimated at $400,000. The two-phase construction plan will allow construction vehicles access to the planned sites of the polymer science building between the planned mall area and Center Street and the McDowell Law Center on Grant Street. The new mall is scheduled for completion in October 1989. By this date, Buchtel Avenue will be stripped to the original brick for a more traditional look.

The entire company is made up of students who use the Company’s performance as a way to test and develop their skills learned in class. The Company’s original name, Experimental Dance Ensemble, was changed in 1986 to reflect the recent changes in the dance department. Margaret Carlson- Brahm, head of the department of dance, explains, “The name “Experimental Dance Ensemble” suggests a new wave or avante garde style of dance, and that’s what many people expected from an Ensemble performance.” However this expectation was in direct conflict with the department’s new emphasis on classical ballet techniques. “We needed a name that suggested a variety of styles,” adds Brahm, “and that name, “Repertoiry Dance Company” best described the purpose of the Company. Ann-Marie Halbisien and Kim Adkins, both seniors plan to use the experience gained from classes and several performances to teach after graduation.

The Working Student Working for a Living to Make the Grade As tuition steadily rises and financial aid continues to be cut from the federal budget, many students find they must turn to the workplace to fund their education. Be it a position within the campus community or one off- campus, students are caught balancing their study time in order to balance their budgets. Charmaine Streharsky is a prime example of the dedication necessary to be a working student. Working an average of 50 hours a week, Charmaine is the assistant director of research services in sponsored programs at the University. Charmaine began working for financial reasons and as a means of gaining experience. To accomodate her work schedule, she must take night classes and will be graduating with a 3.75 G.P.A. If this was not enough to occupy her time, Charmaine is also the mother of two, both honor students at the University. “The secret is to do more than one thing at a time, which includes reading in the bathtub,” Charmaine says. “I enjoy my job so it’s not like punishment,” she adds. The majority of students, however, do not have the extra burden of family responsibilities to contend with. Jeff Ackerson, a senior chemistry major, gears himself towards extra curricular activities, which many employers consider a plus when hiring. Jeff also works at Barnes and Noble Computer as a sales representative. “The money I make is what I live on. I began working to meet expenses and to support my skiing,” Jeff says. An avid skier, Jeff is currently the team captain of the Akron Ski Team. With meets every weekend and a 5 day regional competition, study time is very scarce. Fortunately, he is able to complete his lab assignments on the computers at work, where he puts in 20 hours a week. Carrying a 3.0 G.P.A., Jeff feels, “My grades aren’t the best but there is a sacrifice for everything you do. It all depends on what you are willing to sacrifice.” Jeff is also a member of the Chemistry Club and tutors students in chemistry.

The observance began Feb. 1 with an opening ceremony in the Summit Lounge of Gardner Student Center. Several persons were in attendance to hear Dr. Wallace T. Williams, dean of the College of Fine and Applied Arts, deliver the keynote address, “Black History as a Basic for Value Classification.” Another major speaker, Dr. Mark O.C. Anikpo, a Fulbright scholar from Africa, discussed “Issues in African Development” on Feb. 11 during a special forum held in the Gardner Student Center. Aside from the free talks by Williams and Anikpo, several other events of interest were attended by members of the University and community. One of the more popular events was the fashion show sponsored by Black United Students. With other events, black culture took the center stage. A “Tribute to Black Music” and Soul Food Theme Meal sponsored by the University’s Black Cultural Center were held to promote interest in the heritage of black Americans. Some events, like the general assembly meeting on “The State of Black America” and the “Until Unity Dance” had themes of equal rights. Black History Month 23 Photos: Dennis McDaniels Two Plays Allow Students to Display Theatrical Talent ng Performers Each year, the University Theatre presents a variety of plays ranging from comedy to drama. Although the various casts are made up of students, the audience can usually expect professional- quality performances. Some of the highlights from the 1987-88 season include: “Where has Tommy Flowers Gone?” Described as an “outrageous comedy”, the play was directed by University faculty member, Lyle Dye, Jr. Set in the late 60’s , it told the story of Tommy Flowers, a hippie wandering New York City, through a series of flashbacks to his childhood in the 50’s. “Juno and the Paycock,” directed by Howard Slaughter, a theatre arts professor, combined elements of comedy and drama to portray the effects on the Boyle family of the 1922 civil war in Ireland. The play deftly combined the comedy of Irish character with the tragedy of war. “The Jazzer,” directed by senior theater student, Valerie Bayless, is a basically a love triangle set during World War II. Most of the action occurred in a bar where the main characters are singers. The play was enhanced by several musical numbers as well. Joxer (Homer Farr) and Captain Jack Boyle (David Hadinger) spin another tale in the fall production of “Juno and the Paycock.” Charlie Flemming, otherwise known as “The Jazzer,” (played by Gerard Jude Neary) serenades his lover Vivian Ross in senior Valerie Bayless’ thesis production of “The Jazzer.” 24 Student Life -it; k .

Yet Amy’s expres¬ siveness conveys a message far greater than that of other dancers. What Amy wants her audience to understand is that, “deaf people are not dumb, we have goals and dreams just like everyone else . . . look at me, I can dance!” Yes she can. The winner of many competi¬ tions, the 20-year-old dance major at The University of Akron, is the leader of “The Performing Hands,” a duo put together to inform hear¬ ing people about the world of the nonhearing. Using dance, sign language, re¬ corded music and dialogue from various plays, “The Performing Hands” entertains and educates lo¬ cal audiences throughout North¬ eastern Ohio. Assisting Amy is her best friend of 12 years, Steve Le- land. The son of deaf parents, Steve, who is hearing, is an inter¬ preting major at Akron U. For Steve, relating to the nonhearing is normal and at times preferable. “Hearing impaired individuals are for the most part more open and honest,” he says. “They don’t hold anything back.” Amy must rely on the vibrations from music, precise counting and visual cues to guide her. Counting is her greatest resource, since when other dancers are also on stage, Amy is unable to feel vibrations of the music. Performing an average of 25 times per year, “The Performing Hands” takes its message to civic, public and school groups. “Everything we do in our performances is done to show the beauty and expressiveness of sign language,” Steve says. “You can communicate with the nonhearing, it’s not difficult.” Often, Amy and Steve perform for various deaf groups. “The hearing impaired do not have all the entertainment available to them that others do,” Steve says. “We try to give them something they can appreciate even more than hearing people.” Demonstrating to the deaf that they are capable of anything is a responsibility Amy takes seriously. “When I perform, or compete, I do so for the entire hearing impaired population. It’s a way for me to be an advocate for the nonhearing.” In the past four years, Amy has been an advocate at the International Creative Arts Festival in Chicago. In 1987, Amy won first place in the talent competition and also received a “Best of Show” award for her drama and dance performances. She was also recognized for her poetry entries. All her life, Amy’s willingness has led her to attain goals many would think unlikely. She has adjusted well to the college setting with the support of her parents and the assistance of Akron U’s Office of Handicapped Services. Today, Amy and Steve do just about everything together. They go to the movies and Steve signs the dialogue for Amy. He also suffers endless shopping sprees and keeps her with an unlimited supply of Reese peanut butter cups and french fries. Rehearsing several hours each day, Amy perfects her talent. Her hard work paid off in 1987 when she won first place in a talent competition in Chicago. Amy and her dance partner, Steve Leland, have been best friends for 12 years. They work together to inform hearing people about the world of the deaf. Amy Marks 27 Photos: Bob Wilkey ting The Campaign Trail Students participate in supporting local and campus politics Political activism, once a thing of the past on college campuses, is resurfacing across the country and here at the University. Akron students are expressing this interest in a variety of ways, from joining political clubs to actively campaigning for political candidates. The University has responded to the needs of the students by adding a certification program in applied politics. The program is for students of any major with a desire to apply the theories and practices of political science to real life. Courses are offered in such subjects as campaign management and finance. A scholarship program has been established by the Ray Bliss Foundation for students seeking this certification. Ray Bliss was a longtime Akron politician who served as Republican National Committee chairman and also as a member of the University of Akron Board of Trustees. He believed that once students realized how much fun politics could be, they would become more involved. To this end, the Institute sponsored the 1988 Leadership Roundtable, at which the Ohio representatives of all the presidential candidates discussed politics and the Ohio primary. An outgrowth of the Institute is the Politics Club. Co¬ founded by senior political science major Bob Paduchik, the club has thirty members, and serves as a focus for discussion of political activity on and off campus. It is open to students of all majors and political orientations. Paduchik has been involved in several campaigns, most recently Summit County Prosecutor Lynn Dr. Green, associate professor of political science, encourages his students to get involved in area campaigns. Slaby’s congressional campaign. Paduchik sees volunteer work as a good way to make valuable contacts and get experience. Internships and other job opportunities in political campaigns or administrations are another benefit, but to get these, says Paduchik, “You have to show initiative, you have to show that you’re willing to work hard to accomplish something.” Hard work paid off for Joel Bailey, who graduated from Akron in 1986 with a master’s degree in political science. He is now communications director for Congressman Tom Sawyer, but started off as an education major volunteering on John Glenn’s 1984 presidential campaign. “It doesn’t matter what degree you get. I encourage students of all majors to get involved in politics,” said Bailey. According to Bailey, Akron students show a lot of interest in politics, but Paul Weirtz, another Akron graduate working on Sawyers’s staff, sees it differently. “I don’t feel college students are involved enough,” said Weirtz. “All political decisions affect us, and students need to know more in order to have an impact.” •I 28 Student Life Duane Kinney " A distinct difference exists between people active in politics and those that are not.

But for members of Habitat for Humanity, volunteering to help the homeless is as much a labor of love as a lifting of the spirit. Habitat is an international Christian Housing ministry which renovates and builds homes for needy people, for people less fortunate than themselves. Although the University of Akron does not yet have a campus chapter, Dr. Henry Cone, associate professor of education and President of the Akron Affiliate of Habitat, is hoping to found one in the near future. “As of yet, the only campus chapter is at Baylor University in Texas, but I know of a number of students here who are interested in being a part of our program. About a dozen students from the University are involved in the Akron Affiliate, and they help out on a regular basis,” Cone says. One such student is Ray Herbst, a senior majoring in secondary education. Coordinating a group of high school volunteers, Ray and his group do everything from scraping paint to hauling debris and putting up drywall. Ray sacrifices his Saturdays to ensure that the house at 698 Wall St. was ready for Brian Oakes and his family to move into by late spring. “Habitat is a worthwhile program, and I like the feeling I get from knowing I helped someone and made a difference,” says Ray. Officially approved as an affiliate in March 1987, the Akron chapter has already purchased five houses. With the help of some University students and local volunteers, one family was able to move into their house on Silvan Avenue at Thanksgiving 1987, and two more families will be able to move into their houses in late spring. The recent purchase of two more houses on Madison Avenue means more work will need to be done, but it also means that two more Akron area families will soon have a place to live. Saturday is a rest day, and leisure time is especially important to college students, but the difference that a few hours of volunteer work could make just might be worth the sacrifice. Learning the techniques of carpentry and applying them to this partially built staircase is Mike Rohr. The house that love built, located at 698 Wall Street, will soon be the home of the Brian Oakes family.

" Our Stan Hywet performances usually attract about 200 dinner guests. Many of the patrons are ones who have attended Madrigal Christmas feasts in the past and have made them a part of their Christmas celebration. -Bill Me Dade, Madrigal Singer 32 Student Life According to Dr. Edward Maclary, director of the choral program, the 45 voices of the University Chorus are a great start to a great choral program. Each year around Christmas time, the Madrigal Singers, dress up in Elizabethan garb and perform old English carols at feasts held in the Crystal Dining Room. MTS W Madrigal singers Sings Festively blend music, costumes for lavish feast The room was filled with the sounds of Old English and Gaelic carols emanating from men and women dressed in brightly colored and lavishly adorned Elizabethan garb. The royal-like arrival of the boars head neatly holding an apple accompanied by a flaming English pudding was warmly greeted by an awestruck group of dinner guests. This scene could easily be mistaken for a production of Camelot. In actual fact, this is only a portion of the sights, sounds, and smells you’ll encounter when you treat yourself to the annual Madrigal Singers’ Christmas feast and concert. Each year, the Madrigal Singers, a group of approximately 25 music majors and graduates, hold Christmas dinner concerts at Gallucci Hall and at Stan Hywet Hall. This year, the Madrigal Singers gave their first Christmas dinner concert Dec. 1, 1987, in the Crystal Dining Room. Approximately 40 people attended opening night. While the singers were entertaining, waiters and waitresses were serving dinner, saving the boar’s head and English pudding for last. The dinner and concert was a continual two and one-half hour visual fantasy. The Crystal Light Dining Room was the site of performances held December first and third. Later performances were held at Stan Hywet Hall, with an average nightly attendance of 200-250 people. This is the third year the Singers have performed there. The Madrigal Singers is just one part of the choral program here at the University. The 60 members of The Concert Choir, the 45 members of the University Chorus, combined with the 20 members of the Madrigal Singers yield a total of approximately 120 members of the Choral program. Voice majors, Cecily Patrick and Jacqueline Ware look on as piano major David Aberth sings a hymn of thanksgiving for the Madrigal feast.

Centered around the theme “There’s No Place Like Home,” the festivities commenced in show biz style. The would-be kings and queens began the celebration with their avid campaigning. The candidates busied themselves with shaking hands, smiling, and handing out fliers. Elsewhere, residence halls were being decorated, and Greeks were busy adorning their facades for a banner contest. While various organizations were busy creating floats for the Spirit Parade, individuals and teams of students, faculty, and alumni were preparing for the third annual Scavenger Hunt, and also a Fun Run and 5K Run. The Spirit Parade began the major festivities with performances by five local marching bands, as well as the University’s. King and queen nominees and guests participated along with local television personalities Dick Goddard, Jan Jones, and Michael Stanley. The pep rally centered around a bonfire as Coach Gerry Faust gave an encouraging talk to the cheering fans. Coors Light Comedy Commandos too k center stage later in the evening at Robertson Dining Hall. Again, spirit-filled students cheered on as comedians Mary Wong and Joe Ferrentino performed.

At 8:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 17, families began checking-in at the Gardner Student Center. A day-long schedule of activities including a reception, campus tours, and residence hall open houses awaited. After sampling the services of Robertson Dining Hall, the families cheered on the football team, as the Zips played Delaware State at the Rubber Bowl. Those persevering through the 52-26 defeat and cold rain, were treated to a Fifth Quarter Party. This addition to the schedule of events treated families to hors d- oeuvres and some “after-the-game fun.” Akron’s coaches and members of the student services staff chatted with guests, as Roland Paolucci and the University’s Jazz Combo performed. The highlight of the day, as well as the conclusion of festivities, was the Surfin’ U of A Dance held in Robertson. Music of the ’50’s and ’60’s provided by Sue Simon of WHK-FM set the mood, as students, parents, and families danced the night away. 36 Student Life " This year’s Parents’ Day was great.

Music screams from a hundred-foot stereo, and an organic mixture of beer and chips laminates the floor. Suddenly, there is a knock at the door, and before anyone is able to react, the place is swarming with men in blue (not the Smurfs). The students are arrested and sentenced to prison. Sound far-fetched? Maybe not. As a result of a new law passed by the Ohio legislature, the minimum drinking age for all types of alcohol has been raised to 21. The purpose of the law is to reduce alcohol-related automobile accidents among 18-20 year olds. In the opinion of many people, however, raising the minimum drinking age may not accomplish this goal. “Those people who are affected by the law and still drink will most likely find ways of obtaining alcohol even though it is illegal,” says Scot Stover, a freshman honors student. The truth of the matter is that underaged students can acquire alcohol from a number of sources (older friends, relatives, etc.). But, what about the law-abiding student who doesn’t drink—the same person who always wears his seat belt and never runs a yellow light? What are his options? The University, though how unknown it may be, offers numerous activities for just such a student. A resident hall student may attend campus dances, comedy shows, and special dorm sporting competitions. But you don’t need to live in the resident halls to cash-in on University entertainment. There are inter-collegiate and intramural sports for the school athlete, contests for the performer, and discount movies for the dreamer in all of us. Away from the University, one may find excitement at one of the many social gatherings in or near the City of Akron. So, join a club; see a play. All it takes is a little creativity and some motivation, and any dull event can be transformed into an enjoyable experience. - Frank Colarik New Drinking Law 39 An Akron student takes advantage of the sun’s rays in order to catch up on some reading outside Gardner Student Center.

Originally focusing on a philosophy, science and classical curriculum, Akron currently offers 225 majors within its nine colleges. offers a similar program where students learn first¬ hand in a lab setting and spend time in area hospitals assisting the staff. For students who are ACADEMICS Accredited since 1914, the University has also been reaccredited as a comprehensive doctoral degree-granting institution, an illustration of its high academic standards. In addition to general coursework, the university offers students other opportunities to learn in their field of study. The College of Education has established a program of clinical and field-based experiences where students are placed in an educational setting and apply the principles learned in the classroom to individual cases. The College of Nursing having problems getting through their regular classes, the university offers tutoring in almost all areas of study. When graduation finally draws near, the Career Planning and Placement Office offers seminars on job interviewing and resume writing to help in getting that desired job. Focusing on our educational goals Branch Campus Expands 42 Few students know that the University has two campuses - one in Akron and another in Orrville. Wayne College, the University’s branch campus located 35 miles to the southwest, boasts an enrollment of 1,158. Since it opened its doors in 1972, Wayne College has grown steadily. That growth has necessitated the construction of a new gymnasium which will permit the college to add needed classroom space in the form of a Physical Education building. Ground-breaking for the $1.5 million gym occurred on Oct. 12, 1987. The 25,000 square foot, two-story facility will house classrooms, a basketball court, bleachers, locker rooms, offices, physiology lab, racquetball courts and a Nautilus room. Construction is expected to take nine months as the building will open this fall. Classes offered at Wayne are general studies that lead to either completion of an associate degree or advancement to the main campus in Akron. Nancy Gerhart has taken advantage of Wayne’s two year degree in office administration. Nancy explained that she was a part of an advisory committee of students who hoped to improve Wayne College, but none of their suggestions were ever addressed. “I get sick of the cement walls and lunch out of a vending machine, but I’ve saved myself a lot of money.” The monetary advantage also attracted sophomore biology major, Anne Cook. She feels her study habits are better since she lives at home. ‘‘At Wayne, my grades are higher than most of my friends who have to deal with the distractions of living on campus.” Academics Western Culture exams are what students Kurt Stauffer, Daneka Newcomer, and Ernie Wilson would like to forget.

In February, the College joined 1,200 other community, technical, and junior colleges to observe National Community College Month. “More and more Americans are choosing community colleges,” says Dr. James P. Long, dean of UA’s college. Akron’s college offers more than 30 two-year programs in occupational fields as electronics, commercial art, criminal justice, and culinary arts. The College also offers four-year, bachelor’s degree programs in electronic technology and mechanical technology. The role of community colleges has expanded in the past 50 years to keep pace with the nation’s changing employment needs. The number of community colleges has grown from 553 in 1937 to 1,223 in 1988. Akron’s college began in 1964 with seven degree programs. Long says that the College’s day and evening classes attract a cross- section of the community. Students include women returning to school after raising their families, recent high school graduates, retired adults, people preparing for a career change, and a significant percentage of minorities. The College reaches beyond UA’s campus, too. For employers and employees looking to upgrade job skills special classes are available.

' Polymer departments merge New College A Reality The University is home to the world’s first college devoted exclusively to polymer education and research. The Board of Trustees approved in December 1987 a proposal that calls for the establishment of a College of Polymer Engineering by July 1, 1988. Creation of the college combines the polymer science and polymer engineering departments and their respective research operations—the Institute of Polymer Science and the Polymer Engineering Center—into one administrative unit. The two areas have been separated since their founding. “The move is designed to strengthen our visibility as a world class polymer institution,” says Dr. Frank Marini, vice president and provost. “It’s also logical for us to establish a polymer college because both polymer units have similar goals and work together on research. Combining them will provide students with broader educational and experimental background, improve administrative efficiency and enhance the environment for collaborative research and for funding and activity in polymers.” One of the first universities to offer polymer-related courses—in 1907—the University later became the first U.S. school to establish a Ph.D. program in polymer chemistry in 1956. Since then, a polymer science department (1964), a polymer engineering center (1982) and a polymer engineering department (1984), have been added. - Jenny Black ■ Polymer Science 47 lt r:rrJ7f C .. rf ». fii rhhhidJ i?iji=rs7i jndrlnn: rrrnrj):: -Ciid TD! ‘ ' r • V —f ' ' fTEill ir rlrS? nite rJ rhTtmqd ndLuiul!; 1 Qri ' ri jji ' fi-tl Lik i 4 I liifUilimr. l r;irWr«pfi rrq .. tjnrir ftpSpSHg state ;bdst rn rirttstt .!.»• ( • ■» | lirdn ' jfifiVL jT-TTr- ' n ' T ' -t- : ■ ft i j • r ’ - -W- -- » r ISHislV 1 . » - M , .7. J w— iStlSIiilhlTr flpi dtuUjtirtTj iJjjSiMjtjrjK Trained students bridge hearing gap for the deaf Interpreting Through Signs When truck drivers at the Akron Beacon Journal went out on strike in 1974, deaf persons suddenly found themselves deprived of their prime, if not only, source o f reliable local news. Karen Turner helped solve their problem, and at the same time, began an early-morning habit that’s lasted 14 years. Turner, coordinator of the Community and Technical College’s associate degree program in interpreting for the deaf, answered WAKC-TV 23’s request to “sign” each day’s top news stories during the newspaper strike. Enthusiastic viewer response- demonstrated by hundreds of signatures on petitions-prompted the station, and Turner, to continue “Newsign” even after the strike ended, and it still airs each weekday at 8:25 a.m. As coordinator of the college’s program, Turner knows that trained interpreters can bridge the communication gap between hearing and hearing-impaired persons. “Besides about 40 students working toward our associate of applied science degree in interpreting, we see many nonmajors taking introductory classes in American Sign Language,” says Turner. “They’re learning communication skills that will help them in nursing, social work, law, and so many other career fields.” Akron once had the nation’s largest hearing-impaired population, mainly because deaf workers found jobs in the local defense and rubber factories during World War I and II. Unable to communicate effectively and thereby lacking a way to make their needs known, the deaf and hearing- impaired were largely ignored. Now, interpreters trained through the Community and Technical College’s programs are making mainstream programs and services possible. rd ' tefc bhht jfr: ii ....

This kind of determination and motivation is what has focused national attention on John and on the University’s physics department. John designed and built the first scanning-tunneling microscope in Ohio and the third in the United States. The scanning-tunneling microscope is a device that can photograph individual atoms in compounds such as graphite and gold. By using the microscope, vibrations in the compounds can be measured. After hearing about John’s work, NASA funded the project, which had initially been fund ed by the physics department. NASA also purchased equipment for the lab, including a computer and several freezing and storage tanks. In his work, John faced many roadblocks. First, since this type of microscope is a new invention, John didn’t have a plan to follow. He had to read many articles and makes his own design. His design was praised by NASA for its originality. Beginning in Sept. 1986, John’s work required much patience. He got his first photograph in March, 1987. Graduating in May, 1988. John is looking to continue his education as well as some job opportunities. pm$m MM The drop-in math table is the busiest one in Carroll Hall.

Most students encounter a subject or two during their college careers that they are not prepared for. For this reason, the University offers a tutoring program at no charge to the student. Located on the second floor in Carroll Hall, the tutoring program offers students help in most 100 and 200 level courses, as well as, reading, writing, and math labs. This would not be possible though, if it were not for the students willing to give of their time and talent. John Schindler is one such student. A junior chemistry major, John tutors 3-4 days a week. Originally in College of Education, Schindler was required to do field work in the tutoring center and remained after switching majors. “I enjoy tutoring. You learn how to express difficult concepts and you really learn what you’ve learned,” he says. More than a 1,000 students take advantage of this free service each semester, but considering the size of the University, this is a small percentage. “A lot of students don’t like being tutored because they think it shows a weakness,” feels Del Roso. Schindler agrees and adds, “Many students don’t know we are here.” Kathleen McIntyre is out to change that. The coordinator of tutorial programs for the past 11 years, Kathleen visits various classes on campus informing students of the resources available at the tutor center, and as she sees it, “It is the smart student who uses the resources.” -Scott Hahlen Independant Study Get ready for the long haul. Being a writer, a good writer, isn’t easy. It requires certain characteristics, such as talent and a thick skin, as well as certain conditions, such as free time and an encouraging environment. But all the encouragement, talent and brillance in the world won’t make up for a lack of self-discipline and dedication. “It’s important to write every day. It’s like anything else---if you don’t do it for awhile you get rusty,” says David Giffles, senior with a double major in English and communications. “I feel well prepared,” said Giffels. “The University’s program gave me the structure and help I needed to start writing seriously.” Giffles has taken the two undergraduate fiction writing classes offered by the English department and has had four semesters of independent study. “I found my independent studies in¬ valuable,” said Giffels. “My adviser and I would go over my stories word for word. It really helped me to get a good perspective on my stories.” Senior David Giffels is majoring in English and communications. Each morning at five, he devotes three hours to writing.

The plans for construction of the Polymer Science building and Law School addition were both approved. “Spanning the Tracks” became possible by the aqcuisition of the Polsky department store and parking deck. Buchtel Avenue was closed as construction for Buchtel Mall was approved and construction began in early 1988. The trustees also endorsed institutional priorities focusing on academic and research excellence. The Board approved contracts and budgets necessary to support institutional directions, such as academic excellence, increased research activity, improved minority recruitment and retention. In early April, the Board also approved the Early Retirement Incentive Plan (ERIP) in order to allow up to 150 faculty members to retire early. In addition, plans for a faculty union were also discussed.

According to its adviser, Dr. John Thanopoulos, the club has two major purposes. One is to “increase awareness in the community on matters of ‘greekness’ and to keep their cultural identity alive in the American melting pot.” The other purpose is to help students from Greece and gradually initiate them into the American way of life. Thanopoulos gives primary credit to the success of the Hellenic Club to the organization’s president, Antonis Zambelis, a graduate student at the University. “He has excellent managerial skills and helps to provide a cohesiveness to the group.” Of course, the Hellenic Club supports many festive occasions, such as their annual Lamb Roast. According to Zambelis, the parties “keep the organization’s momentum going to do the rest.” The annual Lamb Roast was originated by the Hellenic Club’s founder and former adviser, the late Bill Mavrides. The first few Lamb Roasts were held at Mavrides’ house. The event is now held at AHEPA park, attracting about 300 University students and people from the community. The festivities have grown to include seven lambs, gyros, and live music. The proceeds from the Lamb Roast and other Hellenic Club-sponsored events go to the Mavrides Scholarship Fund, given to deserving students of Greek descent. i 58 Organizations A member of the Hellenic Club roasts one of three lambs for their annual Lamb Roast.

Ranger Challenge competition provides tough mental and physical challenges for cadets. The event is a three-day, intercollegiate competition ip the following events: The Army Physical Readiness Test (which is comprised of push-ups, sit- ups, and a two mile run), an Orienteering course, a One Rope Bridge, the assembly of M-16 and M-60 weapons, qualification on the M-16 Rifle, a hand grenade throw, a night patrol, and a 10 kilometer road march with full gear. The winner of the Ohio Ranger Challenge competition goes on to represent Ohio in a Regional meet at Ft. Knox, Kentucky. The Regional winner proceeds to the national meet. In 1988, the competition was held at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Akron finished ninth, however, this finish was not indicative of the team’s performance which included numerous personal bests including a second place finish in the Rope Bridge event. The nine members of the 1988 Ranger Challenge Team underwent intense training consisting of 30 hours a week of hard work and sweat.

The ski team is part of the Midwest Collegiate Recreational Ski Council. This years Women’s A Team placed first in the Ohio division. The men placed fourth out of nine teams. Both teams qualified for regionals held in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The teams didn’t fair well, despite an outstanding season. In October, the team attended a conference held in Milwaukee. Conference rules and regulations were explained and tips given. Annually, the team holds a raffle, selling tickets to buy equipment. Over the summer, the team trains, as a group, using grass skis. In October, formal training begins, and, as soon as the snow falls, the season starts. “Everyone on the team supports each other to do their best,” said senior Brenda Brokaw. 62 Organizations Tracy Seese has no difficulty maneuvering the slalom gates at Boston Mills,a tough course.

Drowns This student may not have been allowed to throw paper planes in high school but, engineers use it as a part of their learning experience. ngineers at Play Textbooks traded for onhands experience National Engineers’ Week gave faculty and students from the College of Engineering a break from academics to allow them to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained. According to Raymond Davis, one of the participants, “It’s really great for students to have an opportunity to enjoy what they have learned through hard work by applying it to these contests... it helps assure them they made the right career choice.’’ The week started with the Poor Man’s Telephone Contest where students were challenged to design and build phones using basic materials. With luck, the contraptions would transmit audible voice signals, and the farthest reaching signal would be the winner. In addition was the Egg Drop Competition. Here, students created and tested the design and shock absorption of egg containers by dropping them from various heights without breaking the egg. Not all entries were successful and the Auburn Science Center lobby was covered with shells and yolk. The winning egg and co ntainer, though, stayed intact after a fall of more than 20 feet. The week concluded with the Paper Airplane Contest in Memorial Gym. Planes were differentiated by odd markings and constructed with different aerodynamic designs. Some of the inventions were not very successful, but the idea was to have fun even if your plane would have made the Wright brothers turn over in their graves or your telephone worked no better than two cans attached by a string. Engineering faculty review the egg drop competition result. Engineers’ Week 65 Cinging Sweet Music Gospel Choir combines music and praise Formed in 1975 by a group of students who just wanted to sing, the Gospel Choir is a group of students who sing for the purpose of spiritual unity. There are about 75 students in the choir, a majority of them female. Many of the members have prior experience in church choirs. Two campus concerts are the major events the choir performs each year. These are held in the spring and in the fall at John S. Knight Auditorium. Also, each year the choir tries to perform at one other college. This year it’s performed at Wright State University . The majority of the performances are at churches in Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Youngtown, and Warren. In 1988, the choir gave a scholarship to a member whose grade were exceptional.

A registered student organization, the society has 70 members. The projects and activities of the club are related to the Associate degree courses in Fire Protection. The members learn how to handle hazardous materials on the job. In December, they held a search and rescue exercise for members.

Funds were raised through entry fees and T-shirt sales. The organizations participating in the event were PSE itself, Delta Sigma Pi, Altieri’s, Bizzars, the Townhouse, Barnes and Nobles, and WKDD. Each group built a bed and raced down Brown St. by Spicer Hall. The winning team, Delta Sigma Pi, received five waterbeds from Akron Mattress and Waterbed. After expenses, approximately $675 went to the MDA. Some functions of PSE, a marketing fraternity, are career nights and round tables. But, more important are activities, such as a Don’t Drink and Drive campaign held at the University Club for high school students, or the memorial fund raised for former member Michael Albaugh who died in a house fire last year. This money was donated to the Children’s Hospital Burn Unit. Another item of pride for PSE members is their performance at the National Convention for PSE chapters held in Atlanta. Akron’s chapter took fourth place, which is the best they have ever done. 70 Organizations At the line up, Altieri’s team discusses their strategy for the race.

The University of Akron Marching Band The 180-member University Marching Band, “Ohio’s Pride,” completed a successful 1987 season under the direction of Michael Golemo and with the assistance of Robert Jorgensen, the new director of bands. “Ohio’s Pride” continued the big sound, high energy, sharp knee lift style they are noted for. During Homecoming week, the band led the parade and performed with the 70-member alumni band at the game featuring Akron vs. Nichols State. The band appeared in hallloween costumes beginning a trend. As always “Script Zips” was an Akron crowd pleaser. The band also participated in the Wollybear Parade in Vermillion, Ohio, the Midpark High School band show, and in the Holmes County 25th Anniversary Parade where it was selected “Best Overall Entry” from more than 300 groups. With the continued support of Tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Kappa Psi (the honorary band sorority and fraternity) “Ohio’s Pride” strives to be the best band in the land. Shelly Gohn contributes to the show as the marching band participates in the annual Woolybear Festival. The marching band performs for the Temple fans at Veterans Stadium in Philidelpha.

Graduate Student Government Susan Secrest(Editor of Newsletter), Jackie Gissinger(Activities Chairman), David Bisbee(President). §ocial interaction Grad government provides an evening of fun It’s true-books, studying, papers, and research are all more common for the graduate student. Social time is even more limited than when you’re an undergraduate. Yet there is an organization designed to not only meet the needs of the graduate student, but also fill those gaps of free time, however few and far between they may be. One such event is the Graduate Student Government Dinner Dance. The third annual event was held on April 15, 1988. Designed to facilitate interaction between students of different disiplines and to provide an evening of enjoyment for all, the dinner dance has always proven to popular among the graduate students on campus. This year’s events was held at the University Club. Students enjoyed a large buffet style dinnner before dancing to the tunes of D.J. Nick Talveski. Talveski spun favorites until midnight as the grad students danced under the the brightly colored lighting which swept across the dance floor. 74 Organizations A Graduate couple dances to music provided by D.J.

The program, “A Different Kind of Magic”, was designed to introduce the students to the University’s science programs. The program, held in Knight Auditorium, included more than 30 exhibits, each performed by a University student. Some of the highlights were the making of nylon rope by Paul Zwick and liquid nitrogen demonstrations by Tom Wojcinski complete with a banana hammer that crushed frozen carnations. The show was opened by Mary Lack and Becky Vasiloff, who demonstrated how to turn white wine into red wine. The show was closed with a tour of the Knight Chemical Lab. The Chemistry Club has 47 members, including chemistry, biology, and pre- med majors. Under Dr. Kyska’s advisory, the Chemistry Club observes National Chemical Day, holds an annual plant sale, and hosts demonstrations at local high schools.

They have also made it a tradition to perform “A Christmas Carol” at nearby high schools as a holiday treat. Other activities that the club members participated in this year include holding a make-up booth at Halloween, dancing with the marching band at homecoming as Wizard of Oz characters, and selling balloons for publicity at the May Day street fair while several members performed a skit in front of the booth. The club, under the advisement of Paul Daum, is completely student organized. Members deal with all of the directing, stage designing, lighting, costume designing, make-up applicating, and acting of the productions. Many of the organizations thirty-two members are theater majors, but this is not a prerequisite. The only requirement is a genuine interest in the theater.

The Zips were young with nine new players, six of whom were freshmen. Junior guard Eric McLaughlin, junior forward Shawn Roberts, and center Ken Cullifer, the Zips only senior, were the returing starters. The team’s inexperience showed early as it lost five of the first 12 games. Their fist loss came against the Western Illinois Leathernecks, 77-23 in the McDonald’s Zip Classic Championship game.

McLaughlin was the high scorer with 29, while freshman forward Albert Jones pulled down five rebounds. Inconsistent play contributed to a 92-74 loss against a weak Kent State team. Shawn Roberts had game highs in both rebounds, five, and points, 14. Despite the pathetic performance against Kent State, the Zips looked impressive in a 67-64 loss to the third-ranked Pittsburgh Panthers. The game, played at the Richfield Coliseum, drew a crowd of 11,635. Two victories at home against Bethune-Cookman, 85- 51, and North Carolina A T, 63- 57, lifted the Zips’ record to 6-3. Roberts was the high scorer in both games, with 18 and 21 respectively. The Zips then went on the road to face tough Cleveland State. The Vikings pulled out an 80-73 victory, despite 25 points from McLaughlin. The Zips won eight of their next 10 games, including an 86- 61 victory over Youngstown State on the road.

The Zips took to the road at the end of September and dropped two matches to Indiana and Evansville, being shut out by both teams, 1-0. These losses coming after three wins were characteristic of the the team’s season long Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde pattern of play. Coach Steve Parker in talking about the two losses said, “We had no consistency. The kids did some great stuff for part of the games and some dismal things at other times. It’s like coaching two different teams.” The Zips rebounded with a 1-0 victory at Marquette, a game which saw the return, from back surgery, of sophomore forward Neil Turnbull. Turnbull assisted on senior Sean Docking’s first- half goal. In two more road matches at the Rutgers’ Metropolitan Life Classic, Akron was blanked by both Princetn, 2-0, and Rutgers, 0-0 in overtime. The team’s record fell to 7- 4-3 and it was becoming evident that scoring goals was its biggest problem. It was a very disappointing season for us. Our goal right now is to get more of a commitment from everybody. We want the players to believe in themselves again.” - Steve Parker, Head Coach Parker was perplexed: “We were creating opportunities, although that doesn’t matter if you can’t score.

The Penguins beat the Zips in a come-from-behind 10-6 victory. After a 4-7 season, Head Coach Gerry Faust is looking to the future. “We’re awfully young,” said Faust, “and we made youthful mistakes which can be corrected.” The one link missing from the Zip football program this year was experience.

A CAMPUS-WIDE SPORTS GUIDE Stand-In For Pros Playing professional football is what many people only dream about, but for Akron senior Chris Kelly, it became reality this past year. At the beginning of the NFL season, when it looked as if America’s Sunday afternoons would be disrupted by the players strike, Chris was contacted by the Cleveland Browns to play on its replacement team. Chris had been drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers. His release from Pittsburgh, however, enabled him to play sooner for the Browns. The non-union replacements faced a lot of resentment throughout the league from the striking players, but it was not as severe in Cleveland first the were chanting a few things, but then they didn’t bother coming around.” explains Kelly, a law enforcement- sociology and business major. Chris played three games as a tight end. A memorable experience in itself, Chris made it even more so by catching a pass for an extra point against the New England Patriots. Ironically, Chris has been signed to play for the Patriots during the 1988-89 season. A letterman on Akron’s football, baseball and basketball teams, Chris left in May after graduation for a two-week summer camp. er Or For Worse, Supporting The Zips!

During the -88 school year that was accomplished with the acceptance of Zip football and softball teams, the last teams to make the change. The transition to the 1AA standing will bring with it advantages that the University did not have in the lower division. National exposure is of the greatest benefit to the athletic programs and the school. Big name teams such as Florida State and Auburn will be added to Akron’s schedules in the upcoming years and the possibility of additional coverage on cable television are both results of the national exposure. Financially, NCAA governing the percentage of a school’s budget that can be allocated to athletics will be raised at the University to the higher Division 1 level. The number of scholarships permitted for the football program will also be raised from 65 to 95 in installments over the next few years. The women’s teams were accepted into the North Star Conference this year but the men’s teams have yet to locate a league and played independently this year, which is a major obstacle for the athletic department to overcome. “With the right resources (more scholarships and a reasonable budget), the transition will be easier. It’s been a tough first year, as expected, but we’ve got an excellent chance to do well,” explained Athletic Director Jim Dennison. -Scott Halen ' . pfc; .

Faced Avith an Independent usion I schedule that " Included eleven new opponents, the ladies in blue and gold took to the court in early September in the first of 38 contests that yielded a 16-22 record. Not all that impressive - but let’s be fair - the “set¬ up” for the ’88 campaign has without question, been placed where the opposition will find it difficult to return. That quite frankly, is the significance of 1987. Youth grows into experience - experience provides opportunity - opportunity creates success. When the 1988 season concludes in late November, look to the Zips of ’87 to have been the catalyst for what will be accomplished. In retrospect, seniors Amy Benya and Nancy Noeth did an admirable job of leading the Zips into the “fast lane” in 1987. For their leadership and court play the Zip Captains share the MvP award. On the Offensive side of the net, Benya turned in the Best Offense Performance while classmate Noeth received the Best Defensive Award. Junior hitter Teresa Treadway nailed down the Most Improved Award while former high school teammate Carol Claridge was tapped for Best Newcomer to the squad. Nine veteran Zips will put on the blue and gold in 1988 under recently announced Head Coach, Bill Cooperrider. The Lady Zips bid farewell to two- year Head Coach and former Zip standout Deanne Sommer. Gone are four-year letterwinners Benya and Noeth who have logged many hours on the Zip court. Their parting words to their teammates on Senior Day, November 21, 1987, were “most of all be flexible to change.” How true as the Lady Zips of ’88 change coaches and conferences. Good advice as Akron heads for the “North Star”. 109 Cross Country Both the men’s and womens’ cross country teams showed great effort and accomplishment during the 1987 season. Overall, the men’s record was 35-49, while the women’s was 37-17. Despite injuries and other setbacks, the drive to cross the finish line was not altered. The awards for the 1987 men’s cross country team went to Dave Dobos, MVP and John Porter, Most Improved. The honors should be shared however by all that raced for the Zips in ’87 because as usual, a team of very talented determined young men fought together to find the finish line. For the women’s team, the 1987 co-most valuable runners are Dawn Smith and Cheryl Baumgartner. The most improved runner award goes to Mindy Bragg. At the Midland Alliance Conference, Akron captured the title. Those running in the future will have a challenging path.

The spot made it’s debut on the season football opener against Western Michigan University on WBNX-TV 55. Part of an extensive marketing campaign to promote Akron athletics and increase ticket sales, the commercial was produced in-house by the University and aired throughout the Zips’ football and basketball seasons. Athletic Director Jim Dennison first approached the two coaches about doing the commercial, and got an enthusiastic response from both. But before the cameras could roll, Dennison says, important details had to be worked out. “First we needed the perfect porch, which we found, after much searching, in Mogadore,” he says. “Then, since it was raining the morning of the shot, we had to set up a large tent to keep the equipment and crew dry. The curious neighborhood and local traffic were great about cooperating during the taping, although a jet passing overhead did ruin one of the best takes. Adds Dennison, “Even though they’d never done anything like this before, the two coaches were real troopers. Gerry learned his lines within minutes, and Bob played the straight role perfectly.” An Akron receiver runs downfield to score in the chilling November Quarterback Andy Kubik calls the Offensive Coordinator in the press box for the next play.

Sports Drug testing issue hits home Crack Down To Begin Within the past two years, drug abuse by student-athletes has gained much attention because of the death of University of Maryland basketball star Len Bias. In cooperation with Akron City Hospital, the University has developed a comprehensive drug education and testing program for the more than 400 student-athletes. “We’ve worked hard to develop a program that combines both voluntary and reasonable suspicion testing provisions with an educational program,” explained Athletic Director Jim Dennison. The program will cost approximately $3000 to run. Dennison said the the University’s student athletes will be asked to volunteer for confidential, random testing for such substances as steroids, alcohol and marijuana. However, if reasonable suspicion of drug use exists, testing of any student athlete may be done. He added, “Our principle motivation for drug testing, aside from a concern for the general health of student-athletes, is that drug abusers are not physically fit for the rigors of intercollegiate sports and, therefore, pose a risk of serious injury to themsleves and others in the course of practice and competition. Moreover, drug abuse undermines the integrity of the University’s sports programs.” Men’s And Women’s Track Show Even Consistency The Men’s and Women’s ’88 Track seasons proved to be ironical carbon copies as both teams posted identical 8-8 records under Head Coach A1 Campbell. The men’s Most Valuable Player Award was shared this year by high hurdler PJ Wright and 400m sprinter Dave Grassie. Discus thrower Ron Karam was named the squad’s Most Improved Player, while the Freshman Award was given to Pat Wehrlin who doubles as a 1600m runner as well as a 400m intermediate hurdler. The women’s Most Valuable Player award was also shared by two recipients. Receiving this year’s honors were 1500m and 3000m runner Kelly Long and hurdler Andrea Beaas. Beaas runs hurdles as well as the 400m intermediate hurdles. This year’s Most Improved team member was Cheryl Baumgartner, a 5000m runner. Finally, the women’s Freshman Award was presented to Kelli Shingary who throws discus and shot put. Both teams are optimistic to next year’s season, hoping to improve on this year’s record.

After 24 matches, compiling 17 wins, including their first win ever over a school in the MAC conference, their season came to a close by co mpeting against teams in their new Northstar Conference. They came home with two strong wins over Depaul and the University of Illinois. Senior Laura Ferretti broke two school records this season. She has the most doubles wins in a single season, 16, and the record for singles in a career, 54. Carrie Carncross won 21 single matches in one season, thus allowing her to clinch the MVP award. The season had its standouts, but as captain April Rapp said, “It was the whole team together with the new coaches that made the season such a success.” The Men’s Tennis team played its way to its first ever 30 win season, under head coach Dave Bard and assistant coach Rocco Cona. Greg Prevette, voted MVP, attributed the good season to the depth the team had and effort that went into every game. On their trek to 28 consecutive victories they met some formidable opponents. They overcame the number one team in the Northstar Conference, Northern Illinois University, and old OVC rival Eastern Kentucky. They were victorious over the two toughest teams in the Eastern Collegiate Conference, Bucknell and Townsen State. The men’s season and outlook for the next season are summed up by sophomore Bernard Frost who says that “the year’s results proved to many that Akron’s tennis program is becoming formidable, and we are looking to national ranking within the near future.” An Akron Tennis team player prepares to return the opposing team’s serve.

Not the characteristics of the typical athlete, especially on the college level. But with the presence of Intramural Sports on our campus, even the most non-physically fit can participate in athletic events and feel the excitement of competition. The Intramural Sports program is designed to offer a variety of competitive sports opportunities at various levels of skill. The Intramural Sports program offers activities ranging from those with intercollegiate counterparts, such as softball and basketball, to those that may be a little less common, like Innertube Waterpolo and Blind Bogey Golf.

Joe Jacubick played Zip basketball from 1981-84 and is the OVC’s All-Time leading scorer averaging 23.9 points per game. Jacubick established 25 school records at Akron and was named the 83-84 OVC Player of the Year. Another basketball player, Marcel Boyce was also recognized. Only playing two seasons at Akron, Boyce was instrumental in helping the Zips win their first ever OVC championship and berth into the NCAA tournament. He was named OVC Player of the Year in 1986, and was recently drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the six round of the NBA draft. Mike Birkbeck played baseball for the Zips from 1980-83. Birkbeck was Akron’s first baseball All- American and was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers where he played during the 1987 and 1988 seasons. Finally, Mike Clark played football from 1984- 86. He is Akron’s only three-time first team All- OVC plyer and was given AP First Team All- American honors. Mike Clark, tailback for the Zips, was a three time first team All-OVC player. An Olympic Tradition Calgary 1988 Seoul Beginning on February 29 amd running 16 days, the 15th Winter Olympics were held in Calgary, Canada. As in every Olympic games held since the times of the greeks, heros emerged. Unorthodox heroes like Eddie Edwards, Britain’s lone ski jumper who’s goal “was to survive” were crowd pleasers. The showdown bet between Canad’s Brian Olyser and US’s Brian Boitano in the men’s figure-skating competition, and East Germany’s Katrina Witt upset US skater Debbie Thomas in the women’s drive attracted crowds. Unlikely slalom champion Alberto Tomba and Swiss Priniro Zwilbrigger who won 5 medals races past all other competition. Yet, American hopefuls didn’t fair well. Finishing with only six medals, compared to the Soviets, the American athletes faced a lot of criticism and questions. As Debi Thomas fell from 1st to 3rd place in a final event. And skater Dan Jansen slipped and fell down on his way to a world record, while the hockey team finished 7th. Yet, speed skater Bonnie Blair and Brian Boitano lifted American spirits. As Jamican bobsleder Freddie Powell said, “ So many memories, so many friends”, shows the Olympic spirit was on display again. Marcel Boyce was named OVC Player of the Year in 1986. The Cutting Edge 115 Red Hot Despite disappointing injuries , Lady Zips’ softball make a strong showing in ’88 The 1988 Zips were faced with an obstacle course far greater than any race ever run by a Zip team. First was the departure of Most Valuable pitcher Michele Cyr in December. Then came the loss of outfielder Shelly Harper who could not bounce back from an untimely car accident—the roster now tallied 15. Next came a blow to the face of co-captain Jody Blose, her second broken nose in two years, one week prior to the Zips “Victory Tour.” Blose returned to the lineup on opening day. Infielder Gina Pellitiere was forced into a month’s vacation from softball with a severe case of bronchitis—and now there were 14. Thirty games into the season injuries to third basemen Kim Kepnes and infielder Beth Billion in the same game dropped the Zip roster to a mere dozen. A diamond shift, a determined attitude, and of course, the Lady Zip tradition must must go on. So the “Dirty Dozen” took to the road, bruises, broken bones, and all to register 47 victories. The Lady Zips were red hot in ’88 as the diamond nine rewrote the Akron record book cover-to- cover. No less than 38 Zip records fell as the 1988 squad set 14 single game records, 20 team records and four Career marks. The Zip’s trip .to the West was a learning experience and a confidence builder as the Akron team walked off the field with a 3-4 performance against some of the best collegiate teams. The spring swing to Florida was a good indication of the the shape of things-to-come. Akron boarded the plane home sporting a 9-3 record—the third best Division I record of the five week Rebel Spring games program. Akron’s record in tournament play was indeed impressive. The Zips took second place honors at the Buckeye Invitational at Ohio State, placing three Zips on the tourney team— Akron pitcher Teresa Parker winds up for her pitch. Parker tossed eight standouts holding Zip oposition to a meager .167 batting average. 116 Zips OPPONENT SCORE Drexel 3-2 W Michigan State 2-0 W Eastern Illinois 2-4 L Depaul 3-1 W Iowa 3-2 W Southwest Missouri 0-2 L Drake 3-1 W Massachusetts 5-3 W Rutgers 3-0 w Rider 9-2 w Bowling Green 1-3 L Bowling Green 0-5 L Kent State 0-3 L Western Michigan 0-1 L Western Michigan 5-1 W California (PA) 4-0 w California (PA) 5-3 w Wright State 12-2 w Wright State 11-0 w Dayton 14-0 w Dayton 3-0 w Robert Morris 26-1 w Robert Morris 18-4 w Youngstown State 8-0 w Youngstown State 4-0 w Ashland 8-3 w Ashland 6-2 w Ohio University 2-0 w Ohio University 2-0 w Ohio Northern 3-2 w Ohio Northern 7-0 w Toledo 1-7 L Toledo 1-0 w Kent State 1-9 L Kent State 0-1 L Kent State 4-7 L Co-captain Jody Blose makes a close tag out at the bsae.

The MVP award was shared by outfielder Tracy Firth, and catcher Kathleen Jordan. Junior, Teresa Parker and sophomore, Amy Madrin combined for 33 of the Zips 47 victories to share share the Most Valuable Pitcher Award for the ’88 campaign. Parker posted a 0.93 ERA and a 16-07 record on the year. Likewise Madrin recorded a 17-7 win mark with a 1.56 ERA, nailing 107 strikeouts. Junior, Kim Fausnight repeats as the Co-Offensice Player of the Year, sharing the title with freshman, Shawn Betz. Fausnight led the squad with runs scored (51) and triples (7). She also knocked in 34 Lady Zips while cranking eight game¬ winning hits for a .340 average. Betz grabs the Batting Title with an awesome .364 average in addition to the Offesnive Award and the Freshman Player of the Year Award. Betz led the Zips with RBI’s (47) and homeruns ( 8 ). The 1988 Defensive Player of the Year went to the diminutive Lady Zip second basemen, Janet Hefferman. Hefferman handled the ball 264 times committing only 5 mistakes for a .981 fielding percentage. The Most Improved Player of the Year was awarded to infielder turned-outfielder, junior, Karen Marshall. When you asses the Lady Zip “Victory Tour” you have got to give credit to the heart-and-soul of a young team, maligned by injuries, mother nature, and a grueling Division I schedule. The results, as usual, victory after victory—47 of them in 66 attempts. In retrospect you cannot forget and neither will the Lady Zip’s opponents that believe-it-or-not the 1989 roster reads like the ’88 list—yes, the 1988 Lady Zips are all back in uniform for the ’89 season—and they are “for real.” An Akron outfielder attempts to make contact with the ball despite the glaring sun. The team had an overall fielding oercentage of .956. 118 mm As the Eagles runner rounds third base, all attention shifts to home plate to see if the runner was tagged out. Softball 119 Disappointing Year Formula for success is dampened by a tough schedule and youthful team For the first time in eight seasons, the baseball team did not play in the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC). Therefore the team had to focus on an at-large bid for any hope of an NCAA playoffs. To make matters worse Akron was challenged to their toughest season ever as they faced teams like Jacksonville, Ohio State and Kent State. Akron’s baseball team took to the field for the beginning of their 1988 season on April 4 for a double-header against Toledo. The team fared with a 28-31 season record under veteran Head Coach David Fross and Assistant Coach Jeff Luca. Perhaps one of the teams problems this year was the lack of experienced players. Only 13 lettermen returned to this year’s squad while 24 new faces joined the 37 member team. The team also suffered a loss of team speed. Three of the top four base stealers were lost from last year’s team. Three team captains led the Zip’s through their 1988 season. Senior Dave Cappuzzello (11) who plays third base, shortstop, and pitcher; Steve Sada (5) is another senior who plays the outfield positions. Doubling as a second baseman and left-fielder is the third team captain, junior Sean Carmichael (15). Not only was Carmichael the team captain, but he was also given the MVP award by the Touchdown Club, and he was awarded the Freshman Jim Bruni slides head first into second base during the Point Park contest. 120 Sports Freshman Steve Hall (10) winds up to deliver his pitch against a Point Park batter.

Senior Tim Dobbs (9) pitched his way to be awarded the Team’s MVP trophy, while sophomore Bill Hagey, doubling at second base and shortstop, received honors for the Best Defensive player. Although the team has had a disappointing season much optimism is on tap for next year as the team is likely to be much more experienced. Members of the Zip baseball team gather at the plate for some pre-game strategy.

Chairman Pam Dutt and Co-Chairmen Kim Schaufele organized the event with nearly 100% participation of the chapter’s members. Each god was assigned two lucky coaches from the sorority who helped prepare them for their photos and to help organize a talent act to be performed at the Townhouse Night Club. Judging was done by donations, percent of chapter in attendance, and participant’s answers to questions.

On the University of Akron campus, Delta Gamma Sorority and Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity have established their own Thanksgiving tradition as well. Each year, the two organizations invite more than twenty children from Big Brothers and Big Sisters Center of Akron, to share in a holiday meal. Big Brothers and Big Sisters is a program that matches children aged 7- 15 from single parent families to volunteers who spend time with the children. This year’s event was held in the Phi Sigma Kappa house where the children played video games with the college students. After dinner, the children went rollerskating at the Akron Rollercade. Tired but happy, the children returned home, having experienced a different Thanksgiving tradition. “I learned a lot about the world the kids live in and they learned about college life,” said senior Delta Gamma member Argery Giarasis. After dinner Phi Sigma Kappa member Ed Castner wrestles with kids on Thanksgiving. Later the Thankgiving Dinner is served by Delta Gammas Kim Miller and Amy Bixler. What goes on The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is located on the second floor of Gardner Student Center, behind Summit Lounge. This office serves all the Greek social organizations on campus which involves the Interfraternity Council groups, the Panhellenic Council groups and the groups of Black Greek Council. The office serves a managerial purpose in the coordination of grades and rosters and also used as a communication center where all the fraternities, sororities, and exectuive board members have their mailboxes. The major role of this office is the coordination of Fall Rush activities every summer. J. Lois Jones, the director of Fraternity and Sorority Life advises the members of IFC and PANHEL organizations while also working with Black Greek Council, whose adviser is part of another office. Programming activities for the Greek organizations is done through the Office of Student Development.

Most fraternity houses on the campus are far from being neat and clean. Housecleaning duties are put on the bottom of the priority list. Rarely do the houses ever degenerate to the point of ressembling a sewer. However, every year Theta Chi Fraternity decorates their house as underground networks for their “French Sewer Party.” Complete with grafitti, trash, rats and other sewer decor (minus the odor), the brothers provide a unique atmosphere for partying. This year’s 8th annual event, held in November, was the highlight of the semester. Theta Chi chapters from five states attended the party, as well as several University of Akron fraternities and sororities. The French Sewer Party is held annually by Theta Chi, in November.

Sorority Rush The most hurried, confusing, and fun times in a sorority’s members life are the rush weeks. During this bi-annual mad-cap ritual both prospective and active members organize and carefully carry out a variety of events. Rush week involves groups of girls being escorted from house to house. Their escorts, the Rho Chi, is an unbiased group of active members representing each house. This committee’s members are not allowed to disclose their membership to their groups. This policy prevents one house from recruiting members before they have a chance to visit each organization. The prospective pledges are treated to a variety of events, including a theme and creative party. These give the members a chance to mingle with the new people in a casual social setting. The week culminates with a formal party. Once the tours and festivities are over, the girls make their decisions on which sorority to pledge. “It’s exciting, yet I was happy when it was over,” observed Katrina Kinzel who went on to say, “It’s worth doing once just to see what it’s like.” Lambda Chi Alpha held the 20th Annual Mud-Tug during the 1988 Greek Week. This traditional dirty event was held on Friday, April 22 at 5pm, the day being sunny and hot. Approximately 200 Greeks and supporters were on hand to see Alpha Delta Pi sorority win the women’s division in an upset over defending champions Kappa Kappa Gamma. Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity won the men’s division. Greek week itself concluded in a fitting manner when Saturday’s greek feast ended at the Tau Kappa Epsilon house and members from different fraternities deposited the Phi Kappa Tau Volkswagen in the Lambda Chi Alpha mud pit.

ATA’s Annual After winning the Best Philanthropy award last year, Alpha Gamma Delta sorority decided to make their Lip Jam contest an annual event. This year’s edition, held at the Townhouse nightclub on November 25, 1987, raised more than $1000 which was donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Every fraternity and sorority, as well as other groups, had an act that competed for first place. This year’s winner was Sigma Nu with their imitation of the Supremes. Chi Omega sorority finished second to the tune of Janet Jacksons’ “Nasty Boys.” T-shirts, buttons, and raffle tickets for a trip to Atlantic City were sold to raise money for the foundation. “Everyone looks forward to seeing the acts. They get better each year,” said Leslie Hershey and Mary Beth Aldrich. May Linn added, “It gives the Greeks a chance to compete and have fun.” It is a lip-sync contest based on the TV show “Puttin’ on the Hits,” in which the participants imitate hit groups. Photos.

Beginning on Tuesday, the sisters kicked off the week’s events with the Jump-A-Thon. The women of Alpha Phi skipped rope each day of the week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the lobby of the student center. The event was featured on TV 23’s Newsday. Also on Tuesday night, the candidates for the “Heart Throb” contest were announced in the Townhouse. Each fraternity and sorority chose one representative to compete for the king and queen. A raffle for a trip to Florida was held that night also. “A lot of people were impressed with the activities. It was exciting to hear the response”, said freshman Alpha Phi Angela Wiles. Heart-shaped lollipops were also sold, keeping with the Valentine spirit.

The residents of Gallucci celebrate the announcements that they live in the Hall of the Year. 158 Acade mics Mike Parks Hard work, enthusiasm pays off Gallucci achieves top award The goal of every residence hall throughout the year is to build a community. Its hard to define “community,” but it is easily seen if it exists. It is in the people. The hall becomes more than a place to sleep and study—it becomes a neighborhood. Somewhere along the line the residents become a family and the hall becomes a home. This goal was achieved in Gallucci Hall, helping it to win Hall of the Year honors for 1987-88. The hall government and Resident Assistant staff created this community atmosphere by offering a variety of programs encouraging involvement in the residence hall activities and in the University. These programs included free pizza parties, hay rides, and several sports tournaments. Lectures on alcohol awareness and rape prevention were held to educate the residents on some important issues. The hall government endeavored to develop pride both inside and outside the hall. By developing policies and programs regarding vandalism prevention, the hall’s appearance and pride " The well deserved hall of the year award reflected Gallucci’s enthusiasm. Our reside nts believe this is the best hall on campus.” Scott Sumser junior were maintained. During the basketball season, the Bleacher Creatures came to life. Complete with banners, pom-poms, and face-paints, they cheered on the Zips and won every spirit contest during the season. Gallucci also supported the activities of the entire residence hall system. The residents held receptions during Parents Day and Little Sibs Weekend. Six teams represented the Hall during the Winter Olympics and they helped during the RHC Blood Drive. The Hall won Program of the Month awards for two events: Shots For Tots and the Chief Justice Thomas Moyer visit and lecture. The residents also did their part to help the community. Through the Shots for Tots basketball program which took place during halftime at the Kenyon Game, the hall raised over $700 for Akron Children’s Hospital. They collected 70 pounds of canned food to donate to the Department of Human Services at Thanksgiving. Over $180 was raised to benefit the American Cancer Society during the hall’s auction in April.

Provide Hot Comedy Throughout the fall 1987 semester, three comedians - - - David Naster, Dave Rudolf, and Marc Weiner - - - brought comedy to the 500 residence hall students who attended the Down Unders. Sophomores Bob Jackson and Mike Harris said “The Down Unders brought to the residence halls the atmosphere of a New York nightclub without the expense.” National Campus Comedian of the Year nominee, David Naster, was the first to appear Sept. 23. Performing for more than two hours, Naster did imitations and jokes about college life. “College audiences are a lot of fun because that they come to be entertained,” said Naster. Self-taught musician Dave Rudolf, with his guitar, gave the audience at the second Down Under, Oct. 14, a mix of music and comedy. Performing material from his six comedy-records, Rudolf played everything from a fast-paced, silly song about his childhood, “Go Play in Traffic,” to a slow, serious song about his newborn son, “When I See the World Through His Eyes.” Marc Weiner and his puppets, the Weinerettes, performed at the final Down Under, Nov. 17. Rocco and Tony, two of the Weinerettes, gave the audience a mini-concert, as well as a show of their dancing talents. Weiner has appeared on “Showtime,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Evening at the Improv,” and “Sesame Street.” Rocco the Weinerette shows how he can do a one-handed push¬ up with the aid of puppeteer Marc Weiner.

Freshman O. ’87 This year’s annual Freshmen Orientation was revvin’ with excitement. From Aug. 27-30, 1300 freshmen participated in a weekend full of activities that acquainted them with the University’s campus life. After moving in on Thursday, the freshmen met their roommates and were introduced to the campus by the orientation assistants. That night, games that allowed the freshmen to get to know each other were held in Robertson Dining Hall. A dance featuring radio station WROC’s Freddie the Frog, ended the day’s events. On Saturday, an “Almost Anything Goes” competition was held on a muddy Lee Jackson Field. The competition consisted of five events including “I Need a Drink,” “Bat Spin,” and “Obstacle Course.” In the evening, a comedy show was presented featuring ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger and comedian Rick Aviles. “Freshmen Orientation was a huge success because of the help and preparation from the Residence Hall organizations, the freshmen themselves,” said Bobbi Borac, organizer. -Carey Perkins Dwayne Levy finds himself in a This incoming freshmen moves fix when his “Bigwheel” breaks in his belongings into his new home, the heat of the Obstacle Gallucci Hall.

Who let you borrow their new pink sweater for an important date? Who loaned you $5 - - - no one else but your trusty roommate! Most of us appreciate our roommates. These people put up with our snoring and sleepwalking. They see us at our best and at our worst. But some people do not like their roommates. They complain about roommates who talk in their sleep or who’s side of the room is always a mess. This kind of roommate hardly spends any time “in,’’unless you are “out.” Students living in residence halls at the University are given a chance to request a roommate (usually a buddy from high school) or to go " Its like being with a sister, learning to get along with them.” -Kim Withrow, freshman with the luck of the draw. Each case is different, but most upperclassmen will advise you to go with the roommate which is assigned to you randomly by the University. Most find that friendships that worked at home become strained after a short-time together in a small dorm room. If a resident has a severe personality conflict with their roommate, room switches are usually permitted after the first three weeks of the semster. Most find their roommates bearable and are able to endure 16 weeks together. By the second semester, friendships have been formed on the floor and some rearranging and shuffling of room assignments will help the year pass smoothly.

One way to introduce the family to college life is Little Sibs Weekend. This year, the 15th annual weekend brought more than 100 people to the campus March 4-6. Directed at children aged 3-17, the weekend kicked off on Friday night. Following registration and “moving-in,” little sibs 12 and under were the special guests at Zippy’s Birthday Party held in Bulger Hall. Games like musical chairs and “Pin the Tail on Zippy” brought out the child in everyone. Later that evening, both big and little sibs demonstrated their fancy " The weekend was a chance to give my parents a break.” -Jim Michaels, senior footwork at a dance held in Robertson Dining Hall. On Saturday, the visitors were treated to an Open Game Room in the student center and to a showing of the motion picture “Benji the Hunted.” Individual dorms also held special activities like ice cream socials and cartoon-showing. The weekend was wrapped-up Saturday night by a magic show featuring Kevin Spencer. Performing disappearing acts and rabbit tricks, Spencer made college life for the youngsters quite memorable. “All my little brother wanted to do is play video games. Never again,” said Chris Luoni.

Following the tradition that was established in 1986, the Residence Hall Programming Board invited 14-16 year-old children from the Summit County Children’s Home to share in the holiday spirit. The dance was also a thank-you to the different resident hall students who helped out over the fall semester. " It was a successful event to end the fall semester with.” -Sue Stefonsky, junior Held in Robertson, Dec. 4, the dance attracted nearly 150 people. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and several of the elves were there dancing and mixing with the crowd. Later on, Santa distributed stockings full of candy and gifts to each child. The music was mostly top-40 dance hits. A raffle awarding prizes of Christmas ornaments, gift certificates, and stockings full of candy was held. “It is a neat thing that the Residence Halls get to do something like this for the kids. Its really unfortunate that they have no one for the holidays,” said freshman Maryann Brice. Smiles were seen on on everyone’s face as these children 3 show by their expression.

Tempers flare as alarms ring through the night Residents Angered By Fires A mid-December night . . . the thermometer alternates between positive and negative readings, while a local weatherman broadcasts his forecast for a possible five to seven inches of the white stuff by morning. In the middle of a previously deserted University courtyard stand more than 100 impatient male students insufficiently gowned in anything from pajamas and a robe to a pair of boxer shorts. They all seem to be staring at something-a building, the Bulger Residence Hall. One student nudges the person standing next to him, “Psst, eh’ bud . . . see any flames?” “Nope, not even a puff of smoke!” A few minutes later a group of fireman exit the Bulger Hall and explain to the unruly crowd that its okay, it was just another false alarm. ' The fires were a real hassle for everyone.” - Tim Maxwell, senior This was the first scene several times during the fall and spring semesters. The residents of Bulger Hall were sent out into the frigid weather nearly 20 times as a result of false alarms. “You’ll never know when the next alarm would go off. Once there were three false alarms in the same night. One of which occurred at three in the morning,” said Ron Garczowski, a third floor resident. The University attempted to crack down on the problem with routine inspections and lecturing. Bulger resident assistants and advisors explained to students that setting off false alarms was not to be considered a practical joke and was a serious crime. Still, the occurance of false alarms continued and for awhile, despite all the warnings from University officials, became a trademark of Bulger Hall. Only after several months did the tampering come to an end. et T 1st FLOOR SMOKE 2nd FLOOR SMOKE 3rd FLOOR SMOKE 4th FLOOR j SMOKE I I 5th FLOOR SMOKE 6th FLOOR SMOKE 7th FLOOR SMOKE m FL OOR SMOF £ 9th FLOOR 1 SMOKE ■ I 10th FLOOR SMOKE nth floor SMOKE 12 th FLOOR SMOKE 13th f „OOfi SMC E 14th FLOOR 1 SMOKE I tfith FLOOR SMOKE 16th FLOOR SMOKE TROUBLE BASEMENT POLL STATION ltd FLOOR PULL STATION 2ml FLOOR PULL STATION 3rd FLOOR 1 PULL III STATION 4th FLOOR mu STATjON 5th FLOOR PULL STATION 6th FLOOR PULL STATION TO) FLOOR PULL STATJON Stft FLOOR PULL I 1 STATION 8th FLOOR ROLL ] STATION | f tOth FLOOR !

Five teams gathered on Nov. 14 to make their bid for the championship and a $30 first prize. Broom ball is a sporting event much like field hockey except players use brooms instead of using hockey sticks. The objective of the game is to hit a soccer ball into the other team’s goal as many times as possible. The teams are co-ed - - - three women and three men. The game consists of two-halves, lasting 10-minutes each with a three minute break. The da y’s events pit the five teams against each other in a single " I played for the fame and money. Plus I was drafted.” ■ Peggy Young, Senior elimination tournament. The five teams participating were Stacks, Fanelis, Residece Hall Council, Michaels, and Franks. After beating RHC and Michaels, Franks entered the semi-finals to meet Fanelis. Fanelis eliminated Stacks and eventually captured the championship and $30 first place prize. “Broom Ball Classic was a great break from the books and semester to get some exercise in the 50 degree weather,” said junior Marc Valentin. “It was hard to organize because no one has played in two years, but I think everyone had a graet time,” said organizer Barb McClellan. Because of Broom Ball’s success, it was adopted as an event for the 1988 Residence Hall Winter Olympics, held in February. -Ren Rivera The race is on as these members of Stack’s team get to the ball before the opposing Fanelis’ team.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is trying to heighten awareness and raise money on college campuses by developing Students Against Multiple Sclerosis, SAMS. Nationwide, SAMS involves thousands of students from more than 200 campuses. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, disabling disease that effects an estimated 250,000 people between the ages of 20-40. In 1986, Beth Ann Stover took an interest in the organization and developed a chapter at the University. This year, co-chairpersons Pete Russel and Chris Luoni organized SAMS week held on Feb. 22-28. Money was also raised year-round through other activities. Fitting in with most college students’ budgets was a Hair-Cut a-thon held on Feb. 22 in Ritchie Hall Lounge. More than 100 " SAMS is a great way for students to get involved with an important program.” -Debby Haswell, sophomore students paid $2 for a professional cut. Money was also raised through the sale of $20 sweatshirts. The shirts were also a free ticket to a showing of “Gone With the Wind” in the students Center theatre. The annual Rock-a-Like contest was held Feb. 26, and brought the week to a close. Rock-a-Like is a lip- synch contest in which students mimick their favorite artists. The audience votes with money, the winner raising the most. Bob Maidson, portraying Eddie Money was chosen from other acts that included Billy Idol and Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam.

The Tel-Buch marks its 75th anniversary in 1988 he 1987-88 school year marks the 75th volume of the University’s yearbook, the Tel-Buch, first published in 1880. Simple mathematics will prove that it should actually be more than 75 years; however, several volumes were not printed due to World War I and World War II. Times have certainly changed since 1880, within the community, university, and even with the Tel- Buch. The main purpose has always been the same; to remain an accurate, historical record of life at the University of Akron and as a memorable keepsake. Besides it’s common purpose, the Tel-Buch hasn’t always remained the same. The Tel-Buch has been known, throughout the years, as The Argo and The Buchtel before receiving its present names in the 1910’s. Today’s yearbook got its name after our founding father, John R. Buchtel, with the two syallables (continued, pg. 179) John Heisman, after which the Heisman Trophy was named, was once Athletic Director during the early years at Buchtel College. This is Heisman’s 1893 football team. 178 History Mini-Mag r of his last name reversed to Tel- Buch. The Tel-Buch, when first published, was short and squatty, much like an autograph album. Photography hadn’t been invented yet or often times too expensive after it had been invented, so the book mainly consisted of copy. The book was formatted much like a diary, disscussing the events of each day and then highlighting the major events such as socials, sports, and graduation. If there were any pictorial representations at all they were drawn. It is evident that potraits of the founder or presidents of the college were sketched professionally, but many “amateur” drawings were also prominent. It also seemed as though cartoons were popular, probably drawn by a staff member or student. Finally photography came into the picture in a big way. The yearbook started featuring more photos, and less copy, although the quality of photogrphy wasn’t as we know it today. Today our photography is of action-a football game, a sorority dance, or a formal dance. Back in the early rears, the Tel-Buch photography consisted of mainly administrators and buildings, such as Buchtel Hall, the library, or gynasium. As time evolved the Tel-Buch became more advanced. Photography became perfected, feature stories became focused, and color became popular during the 1960’s. Throughout the years the Tel-Buch has grown to what it is today, and we’re always improving. A large majority of classes were held here in the Main Building, erected in 1872. This photo was taken in 1894. Did you know . . . -That “The Akron Blue and Gold” was written by Fred Waring in 1939, and premiered on his NBC television program? -that Tel-Buch is a play on the name of our founder, John R. Buchtel. History Mini-Magazine 179 Establishing Buchtel College Telling the story of our forefathers he first step towards founding The University of Akron took place at a state convention at Mount Gilead, Ohio in 1867. The Committee on Education favored the establishment of a seminary for both sexes designed to “secure the highest grade of classical, scientific, and literary culture known to American colleges.” The motion was made to decide where the college would be, and at a meeting in Columbus in 1870 Akron was chosen under the condition that the citizens of Summit County legally secure to the state convention $60,000. A vigorous effort was made to secure the school by John R. Buchtel. He donated $25,000 for the endowment and $6,000 for the main building. Buchtel’s total contribution to the college was over a half a million dollars. Did you know . . . In 1925 the university celebrated “Loud Tie Day” where students dug deep into their family antiques and hierlooms in order to bring to light some antediluvian or octegenarian costume that would attract attention. Students wore wild and outlandish ties, hats, coats, and shoes. John R. Buchtel donated large sums of money in order for the Akron college to be established. The college was named after Buchtel in honor of his efforts. 180 History Mini Mag In July of 1871 the cornerstone for the main building was laid during an impressive ceremony, and construction went under way. The building was quickly completed, and the institution was opened to students on the 11th of September, 1872. On September 22, 1872 the dedicatory exercises and inauguration of the college were performed by Reverend S.H. McCollister, the first President of the University. The college’s cirriculum consisted of three distinct courses-Classical, Philosophical, and Scientific- each requiring four years to complete. In addition the college was open to students of both sexes with no distinction being made in awarding privledges or honors. At the laying of the cornerstone, Mr. Buchtel said, “One end of the college is for men, and the other end, just exactly like it, for women. I believe in educating all without regard to color or sex.” He believed in co-education, and that education is not to create, but to develop what is already in man-education gives power. During that first year of enrollment, a total of 271 students attended, 119 men and 98 women. Alumni receives award The University of Akron’s College of Education today paid tribute to 21 outstanding teaching alumni during Professional Excellence Day. Also honored was Edith Delaney Mitchell ’33, the college’s first black graduate. Among the attendees were 125 alumni new to the field in the last five years. Those 21 honered teachers are from 11 school districts in Summit and Stark Counties. Nominations for the recognition were made by their respective superintendents. All nominees were the reviewed by the Dean’s Advisory Board. Delaney taught elementary education in the Akron’s schools from 1956 to 1978 when she retired. The Akron resident is active in UA’s Black Alumni Association and Alpha Kappa Alpha, the sorority of which Delaney is the Charter member. History Mini-Mag 181 Buchtel Hall Burns Down Fire damage puts University on brink of disaster B uchtel College was amidst financial problems since the depression of 1893 when tragedy struck the campus on December 21, 1899. Buchtell Hall, the campus’ main building, was destroyed by fire. The majority of the building was gutted by the fierce flames, and all that remained after the blaze was the front frame to the building. The fire placed the college into graetre financial debt. The buliding was restored. Things couldn’t get much worse for the university, and in fact, things did get better. “The school on the hill”, as it was affectionately called, continued to grow, gathering strong resources along the the way. Men whose names we only know by the buildings on campus were prominant leaders, many of them college presidents, during this time period. Some of those men responsilbe for shaping the college during it’s early days were Kolbe, Olin, Spanton, Ayer, and Bulger. • iiJKm % : isjaPE: fj World War I had a profound effect on the university. Enrollment declined as all eyes shifted to the comotion in Europe. The war’s effect was seen in many activities at the university for several years to come. In 1924 the Alumni Memorial Stadium was dedicated with a seating capacity of 6000. An Alunmi Memorial Scholarship was established as a permanent memorial to all the Akron men who died in the war. Today’s students can look at the front of Memorial Hall, and see the names of area men lost in battle. The marble wall stands as a memorial, for the past, present, and future students. The campus slowed down to a virtual screeching halt during the war years, of both World War I and World War II. Yet it’s during the time between the wars that the college took on a majority of it’s growth and development, building the charcter of the University of Akron. Did you know . . That Memorial Hall hosted both the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates in 1964? The nominees were Johnson and Goldwater. That Buchtel College and the University of Akron have had 12 presidents combined? President Muse is the 12th president. Damage from the fire that destroyed Buchtel Hall was all that remained in December of 1889. 182 History Mini Mag The frame of Buchtel Hall remains after fire gutted the building. Firefighters comb through extensive fire damage in Buchtel Hall. History Mini Mag 183 r Setting The College’s Traditions Looking back on the early years activities roughout the University’s early days, a number of activities were held that managed to be repeated each year. The establishment of these traditions is what charcterizes colleges and universitirs from the others in its class. What’s so surprising is that many of these traditions have survived university hardships, two world wars, and changing times-yet they all still have a place among the activities of today’s campus. Fraternities and sororities can perhaps be said to be the first university tradition. After all, the Greek system has been a campus activity since day one. The original fraternities were Phi Delta Theta and Delta Tau Delta, with 15 and 18 members respectively. The first sorority, Delta Gamma, was established with only 10 members. Did you know . . . That Bierce Library was named after General L.V. Bierce who in 1871 had a large number of books donated as a nucleus towards the establishment of a library. When the library was first founded it was only open two hours per week, one for men and one for women. Tree Day, , known now as May day, featured a parade with a queen and her court. 184 History Mini Mag Yet perhaps the most popular tradition on campus, besides commencement of course, is May Day. This yearly tradition, held every year at the beginning of May, originally began as Tree Day. The celebration was held as far back as 1916 by placing a rock underneath a tree. Yes, the same rock that’s been every color of the spectrum, on a weekly basis, across from Gardner Student Center. The festivities were accompanied by a parade, complete with a queen and her court; students even danced around the May Pole. The “A-Key” was created in 1923 for students who were “deemed worthy, out of the undergraduate body of the university, to wear the honor “A-Key” as a mark of appreciation from school for the service they had rendered it.” The “A-Key” is still awarded to deserving students on a yearly basis at the All-Campus Recognition Dinner. Finally, another important tradition is the university’s nickname. The “Zippers” was selected as the official name for the athletic teams in January of 1926. Now shortened to the “Zips”, our teams are cheered by Akron’s favorite Kangaroo, our mascot Zippy. A majorette from 1942 leads the band down the field. Delta Tau Delta fraternity, was one of the very first fraternities on campus. This photo is of the fraternity house in 1893.

Football and basketball constututed the athletic offerings for athletes and fans alike. The first Akron athletic department director turned out to A 1940 football receiver carries the ball downfield to score. be quite a famous one John Heisman, after which the collegiate Heisman Trophy was named, was the Athletic Director in the college’s earliest earliest days. In addition Heisman was a member of the 1893 coaching staff. The college began to develop it’s athletic department by adding other sports for men and in 1923 added women’s sports to the athletic roster. Sarah Dunkley was the founder of these sports. The first cheerleaders appeared in 1924. Three men were the original cheerleaders. Today’s squad totals 14, seven men and women. In 1940 new “minor sports” were added to the sports calendar. They included swimming, wrestling, 186 continued from page 186 rifle, tennis, and golf teams. There was even a table tennis team and a fencing team, although they had not been approved by the university. The university made its biggest step towards big time sports in 1941 when it opened the Rubber Bowl, costing over a $ 1 2 million to build. The fans broke an attendance record that season, second only to OSU, for a total of 58,938. Akron also holds the record for the first night game. The athletic department expanded, adding teams that are popular today, such as track, cross country, and soccer. Perhaps the biggest step for the athletic department occurred only last year as the university achieved Divsion IA status in the NCAA. This only means bigger and better things for the sports at Akron. £T 50 s PL B DC: Members of the 1972 marching band practice on Jackson field before Saturday’s big game.

The disease has spread across the country in a way surprising to the researchers, jumping from one large city to another, rather than from one point of entry outward to contiguos areas. After a disease enters a city, however, it moves contiguosly to the city’s suburbs and then surrounding rural areas. The data was analyzed by Dr. Ashok K. Dutt and Dr. Charles B. Monroe, of the geography faculty at Akron, with assistance from graduate student Barbara Prince and by Hiran M. Dutta, of the biology department at Kent State University. Prior to 1985, incidents of AIDS were less than one in a million in large parts of the country, including Ohio. By January 1987, every state in the U.S. showed increasing numbers. The highest numbers of incidents have consistently been in the states where the disease apparently entered the country New York and California, plus New Jersey and the District of Columbia, with rates greater than 10 per 100,000 people by 1987.

Yet things didn’t appear too “heavenly " when Jim tried to cover his sex fling, involving Jessica Hahn, with a bribe. Jim’s repentence and Tammy’s tearful moments did save the PTL, as it filed for bankruptcy earlier this year. Seems as though the Bakker’s have more to confess as they are under a federal investigation for tax evasion and mail fraud. National Catalog 191 y S t a t e C i t The end to a football legend . . . and the fall of his successor The Ohio State University football community suffered several losses in 1987. On March 12 coaching legend Woody Hayes died of a heart attack. Hayes, 74, coached the Buckeyes for 28 seasons, producing two National Champions, 58 All- Americans, two Heisman Trophy winners, and six straight Big 10 championships at one point. Hayes accumulated a coaching record of 205-61-10. Upon his death, President Reagan said, “Woody Hayes was a legendary college football coach, he was colorful, sometimes even controversial, but he always cared deeply about his players, his team, and his school.” On Novermer 16, OSU lost another coach but for very different reasons. Earle Bruce, head football coach for the past nine years, was fired bu OSU President Edward Jennings. The firing, which occured before the seasons biggest game against Michigan, was caused by several things. First, the Buckeyes 5-4-1 record was their worst in recent history. Bruce’s attitude and relations with the OSU community were also cited by some. Bruce had the best winning percentage of any Big Ten coach during his nine year tenure as head coach. He won or shared in four Big Ten Championships and his teams made bowl appearances every year. Akron gains Hall of Fame Thursday, September 3, was an important day for the city of Akron. That is the day Akron was selected as the site for the Inventors Hall of Fame. Akron beat out several other cities, including Philadelphia, by impressing the selection committies with an imaginative proposal and the enthusiasm of the city. Edward Oldhan, a driving force behind the Hall Of Fame campaign, described it this way; “The idea of having a hall of fame here really captured the enthusiasm of the town. With the halls of fame in Cleveland and Canton, we may become the hall of fame belt.” The 30,000 square foot hall is scheduled to open April 10, 1990, the 200th anniversary of the issuing of the first patent. 192 Cities Trends Mini-Magazine C a Good Muli fot, dovidwJH AblOH, The past year has been good for the city of Akron.

Estimated to cost $25 million, the 95,000 square foot building will include 60,000 square feet of space devoted to performing areas and exhibits. low rent, and shared facilities. These shared facilities include storage and warehouse space, conference rooms, networking facilities, and other support services. The remaining section of the complex, about 12 buildings will be developed into a housing facility, particularly for Akron students. University officials are hoping this will alleviate some of the housing problems students are currently facing, and are looking forward fot the buildings to begin accepting students next fall. Forty-six rock-n-roll legends have been inducted into the hall. During the most recent ceremonies in January of 1988 inductees included the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Supremes, and Bob Dylan.

The approval came today during the board’s regular monthly meeting. Slated to begin with UA’s fall 1988 semester, the policy prohibits smoking in all University buildings except specially designated areas. Requirements for such a designation —including proper ventilation, a closed area and the permission of one ' s “neighbors”—are strict and will severely limit the areas where smoking is allowed, notes UA president William V. Muse. Muse recommended the policy to the trustees after University Council, the campus governing body, gave its full support in February. Smoking will not be allowed in campus offices unless, upon the request of the employee, The University Environmental and Occupational Safety Office evaluates the area and determines that is meets the strict designation requirements. The new policy does not apply to residence hall rooms. The UA housing administration tries to match roommates with compatible smoking preferences.

In addition to playing Beatles music , the band bears a striking resemblance to the Fab Four in both looks and costumes. The group features Mark Benson as John Lennon, Gary Grimes as Paul McCartney, Greg George as Ringo Starr and Bob Miller as George Harrison. Faculty union a debatable topic The hot topic of debate among faculty in 1987-88 was collective bargaining. Those for collective bargaining would like to be represented by the American Assocation of University Professors (AAUP), led by Fay Dambrot, president-elect of the Akron chapter of the AAUP. Dambrot was quoted as saying, “We feel the individual faculty has no power on this campus. Only through a legal agreement will we have a voice.” Collective bargaining is seen by some as a way to bring faculty and administration together to achieve goals, but others such as the “Faculty for Shared Governance,” do not agree. Dr. Penny Marquette, head of the “Faculty for Shared Governance,” argues that the university will split the campus, creating a management vs. labor atmosphere. She was quoted as saying, “ University contracts are not designed to take into consideration the quality of classroom teaching or the rights of students.” 194 c g t I Presidential hopeful Jackson visits campus Democratic presidential hopeful Jesse Jackson visited the Akron campus on April 23 raising support for the May 7 primary.

Nielsen Company, according to a pioneering study focused on viewing habits of away-from-home college students, a group not represented in the Nielsen ratings. The survey reports that there are 730,000 previously uncounted college students in the 18- 34 age group watching “Late Night with David Letterman.” That figure plus the 18- to 34-year- old viewers counted by Nielsen (2,190,000) yields a total auideience of 2,920,000 in that age group. “Saturday Night Live” and “Friday Night Videos”, also favorites of college students, are included in the study, conducted by Survey Design and Analysis of Ann Arbor, Ml for NBC research. For “Saturday Night Live,” the uncounted college audience, amounting to 402,000 according to the survey, represents a 10 percent increase in the show’s actual audience in the 18- 34 age group. The Nielsen-reported 18-34 adult audience is 3,840,000. Adding the uncounted college audience raises the total to 4,242,000. The increase in audience for “Friday Night Videos” amounts to 8 percent and represents 175,000 previously uncounted college viewers in the 18-34 age group. The Nielsen count for the 18-34 viewers is 2,230,000. this brings the total audience in that age group to 2,405,000. At total of 1,007 telephone interviews were conducted at 53 college and universities on the spring of 1987. Calls about “Late Night with David Letterman” were made within 24 hours of the actaul telecast. The recall period for the two other shows ranged from three to seven days.

Let’s look to the future¬ finding a job, moving out, paying back your student loans, living in the hustle and bustle of modern America, making payments on your new home, worrying about the economy and paying lots of taxes. Well- maybe standing in line at Spicer Hall wasn’t so bad after all! But then again you’ve survived college, and nobody said it was a piece of cake either. The Tel-Buch staff wishes the best to our 1987- 88 senior class. R em em be ring a fellow senior Deana Shade, an Educational Technology major, specializing in Child Development, died February 20, 1988 in an automobile accident in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Deana was a passenger in a pick-up truck when it hit a patch of ice and spun out of control. The truck slid across the center line and was struck by an oncoming car. Deana, 20, from Hamler, Ohio was to graduate in May. She had planned to continue her education towards a Bachelor’s degree at Ohio State University. Deann’s dream was to open her own nursery school upon her graduation. She believed that children were the future and wanted to dedicate her life to the young. Deana’s heart had room for all the children in the world, and she wanted to help each and everyone grow and develop to have the best possible future. Roommate Amy Pertl said, “I couldn’t have met a more special person to have shared part of my life with.” Emily E. Anders, English James H. Armocida, Biology Lisa B.

The committee discussed the “Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights,” a bill that proposes sweeping changes in relations between taxpayers and the Internal Revenue Service. The students presented results of a research project they conducted that reveals that millions of Americans —primarily in lower income brackets—are injustly penalized by the IRS because they do not understand the complex wording of the instructions on federal tax forms. Senator David Pryor (D-Arkansas), chairman of the Finance Subcommittee on Tax Penalities and sponsor of the bill being discussed, invited the students to Washington after learning about their legislative project at the American Bar Association Convention in New Orleans held in January. Focusing their study specifically on the 1040EZ, the form used by most lower income filers, the students found that four out of five Blacks, seven out of 10 Hispanics, and over half of the total U.S. population have not achieved the reading level required to understand the instructions. These demographic groups read at a fourth grade level, while the instructions are written at an eighth grade level or above, according to U.S. Department of Education literacy statistics. “We wanted to show the Finance Committee how lower income filers are being discriminated against by the IRS through current methods used to administer the federal tax system,” says James W. Childs, director of UA’s Tax Clinic and a member of the ABA’s Low Income Tax Committee. All 15 students attended the hearing, but only two testified. The Akron tax clinic provides free assistance to low income and elderly tax filers, trains over 100 elderly persons to provide tax advice to other elderly filers, and offers computer support for 30 tax preparation clinics throughout northeast Ohio.

DeLaughter, Accounting 212 Seniors, Buccino-DeLaughter Trustees approve budget A budget of $168,745,251 for the 1988-89 fiscal year was approved on April 27, 1988 for the University of Akron by the Board of Trustees during its regularly monthly meetings. Included in that budget is $4,029,152 for Wayne General and Technmical College, Akron’s branch campus in Orrville. Akron’s total budget for 1987-88 wass $163,820,848. In revenues for both campuses for the coming fiscal year, Akron anticipates $7o,251,674 from state appropriations and $50,916,130 from fees and tuition for credit courses. An estimated $18,500,000 is anticipated in restricted funds from research contracts, public service programs, private gifts and grants and other sources. Other income sources include non-credi t programs, unrestricted gifts and grants, and endowments. Related to the budget was approval by the trustees of a 7 percent tuition increase for full¬ time undergraduate students. That amount is lower than the increases anticipated at most of the University’s sister institutitions in Ohio, and will keep the cost of an Akron education at the mid-point of the state’s 13 public universitites, according to R. Wayne Duff, vice president for business and finance. The increase took effect summer 1988 for students at the main campus as well as Wayne General and Technical College. This year, an undergraduate student enrolled for 13 to 16 credit hours paid $773 per semester plus general fees of $15.25 per credit hour. With the increase, that student will pay $827 per semester plus general fees of $16.50 per credit hour. Parking permit fees were also increased. David Paul Delcoma, Marketing Sherri R.

The lecture series, presented by the School of Law through the David L. Brennan Chair of Law, is just one of an ongoing group of activities in honor of our Constitution’s 200th year. Schlesinger’s lecture addressed the question, “Can an 18th- Century Constitution Work in the 21st Century?” Born in Columbus, Schlesinger went on to become a history professor at Harvard and resigned that post to serve as special assistant to the president during the John F. Kennedy administration. Currently the Albert Schweitzer Professor of Humanities at the City University of New York, Schlesinger won Pulitzer Prizes for two historical biographies.

Maneval, Marketing 216 Seniors, Karg-Maneval Going on-line Students at Akron were the first in Ohio and among the first in the country to be able to register for classes with a simple phone call. The program started October 12, allowing students to register for classes from their dorm rooms or from hundreds of miles away—via touch tone telephones. Called TRIP—short for Telephone Registration and Information Processing—the new computerized system incorporates a data entry interactive voice response processor to interface touch-tone telephone to the University’s IBM mainframe. Following the easy instructions that accompany their registration materials, Akron students can call the system’s 30 lines any time during the day or night. “Without a doubt, TRIP will make registering for classes more convenient and efficient,” says Registrar Gerri Chitty. “Students will still have the option of registering in person, of course, but I think most will eventually opt for the new system once they see how easy it is to use.” Chitty stressed that safeguards are built into TRIP so that students will not register for a psychology course when they want polymer engineering instead. After students input their course numbers via touchtone phone, TRIP’s friendly, natural voice recites the numbers for verification. The entire process generally takes less then five minutes. Akron students can also use TRIP to order parking permits, obtain class listings, drop and add classes, and change their mailing addresses. Only a few dozen universities nationawide— ranging from Dixie College in St.George, Utah, with an enrollment 2,500 to Miami-Dade Community College with an enrollment of 63,482- have similar systems in operation. As Ohio’s thirs largest university with about 26,000 students on its main campus, Akron has a system that will be among the most extensively used. TRIP was purchased from Perception Technology of Canton, Massachusettes, at a cost of $126,216. Donna M. March, Industrial Management Michael A.

Sclesinger, Jr. as well as retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Arthur J. Goldberg. All 2,000 tickets were taken quickly for both lectures, part of Akron’s Bicenntenial Commemorative Lecture Series in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the framing and signing of the Constitution. Alberta Hensley, special projects director at Akron, notes that mail order requests for the free tickets came in overwhelming nnumbers from the general community, the campus, and area high schools. Goldberg spoke about “Our Constitutional Faith” on Tuesday, September 22, 1987. Originally scheduled for the Gardner Student Center Hilltop, the location had to moved to John S. Knight Auditorium due to a larger-than-expected demand for tickets. Goldberg earned a law degree, summa cum laude, from Northwestern University in 1930. Following years of private practice, he established a career in public service as secretary of labor of the United States, 1961-62; associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, 1962-65; and United States Representative to the United Nations, 1965-68. He has served as general counsel for the CIO, the United Steelworkers of America, and the AFL- CIO, and was a pricipal architect of the AFL-CIO merger. His book about the famed merger is the AFL-CIO Labor United A recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Goldberg has received some two dozen honorary doctorates from universities worldwide, and has held professorships at Princeton and Columbia, among others. The lecture was part of a year-long commemoration planned by the University’s U.S. Constitution Bicentennial Committee headed by professors A. Al-Rubiay and Carl Lieberman.

On Sunday, January 10, 1988 1,875 students graduated during Winter commencment ceremonies held in the JAR arena. The guest speaker for the winter exercises was John F. Sieberling, a former area congressman. In addition to his speech, Sieberling was awarded the honorary Doctor of Laws degree by President William Muse. The University held its spring commencement on May 28, 1988 for 2,155 graduates. This year’s spring ceremony was held in the Jar arena also, rather than the traditional Richfield Coliseum. Due to the si size of the JAR, the University was forced to 5 graduating class into two, one half gradual morning, the other half in students criticized ' TT A PhD. graduate receives his hood before President William Muse grants him his degree.

Concerned with the lower drinking age, University officials banned alcohol, along with a rock group performance, moving the jubilee to the dosed Buchtel Avenue. In addition to the traditional Scavenger Hunt and Campus Clean-Up contest, the May Day celebration was transformed into a street festival.

I have had the honor to meet and work with many talented and wonderful indivduals throughout my two year affiliation with the yearbook. At the same time I have gained knowledge about the management of people and the operation of an organization. Overall, the Tel-Buch has been a wonderful, worthwhile experience for me. The friends I have made within the staff are amongst the best in the world. I couldn’t have asked for a better staff. Although we may have been knocked down a few times, my staff managed to pick itself back up, re-group, and jump right back into the thick of things-just to ensure that we create the best yearbook this University has ever seen. There are several individuals who Colophon Bud Marston Bob Fritz George Tilden Gretchen Laatsch Kim Lowe Mary Beth Golemo Marie Samulak Vicki Fete Charlene Reed Pam Graybill Ken McDonald Gerri Chiity Joe Benes John Ashley Tom Fassel Jostens Lenny Young Dick Prifty John Miller Archival Services Alda Nelson deserve special thanks: To Andrea, my Managing Editor- Not only were you an “excellent right hand man”, but also a super friend. I don’t think I could have made it without you. To my family and Carl- For putting up with weeks of yearbook scattered all over the livingroom table and their constant support, love, and encouragement. To Barb and my roommates- Who reluctantly opened our home to the staff for social functions and for always being there. To Russ and Larry- Whose guidance and encouragement made t his book what is! To Sports Information Finally, to my staff- Thanks for all your hard work and dedication, especially Dennis and Mike, for your extra running around and going the distance. It is my hope that you enjoy this 75th volume of the Tel-Buch, as much as I enjoyed helping create it. 1987-88 Tel-Buch Tracey L. Colton Editor-in-Chief History Editor City Trends Editor Russell D.
